The Hawks and the Sparrows, a wildly comic fable, stars the beloved stone faced clown Toto as an Italian everyman, and Ninetto Davoli as his good-natured but empty headed son. Pasolini uses a comic crow, which philosophizes amusingly and pointedly about the passing scene as a counterpoint to the performers, representing humanity, as they progress down the road of life. This tragic fable is a delight that captures the peril of two innocents caught in the paradox of Italian life between the Church and the State.

In a bid to review the International System of Units (SI), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures gathered at the 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures on November 16, 2018. Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.
