The film is about the ultimate cruelty and pain that a woman experiences. But the twist of the screenplay puts us together with the story film that goes so
elegantly

and transmits the pain of that woman to the viewer.

Through this story,the sectarianism within Christianity and Muslims and its ugly face are shown. The film is based on a stage play called #Incendies.

Learning about message sticks is my favorite. When thinking about message sticks from a #literacies perspective, they seem very modern.

It is intriguing to learn that humans weren't made to #read and that it is possible due to brain plasticity. It is also fascinating that #reading #Chinese script and alphabetic #writing activates different brains areas

Favorite facts about #languages and #cultures in #contact
In #Arabic we say: “Footprints indicate trajectory”, but I never thought that a wheel would reveal a culture. This is how #cultures can be traced through #languages. The reading made me feel like I am solving a puzzle more than exploring languages.
Think twice before starting to learn #English, cuz you’ll end up learning even more -- #German and #French, and more …
After all, it was the Anglo-Saxons and Normans who influenced the vocabulary!!
English is a mixed #language!

What do an adder, an apron, and an orange have in common?

If it weren’t for the phenomenon of “rebracketing”, they would all three still be known as nadder, napron (cf. #French napperon), and norange (cf. #Spanish naranja).

Fun fact? I've spent 46 more days incarcerated than @chrissaccoccia1 has. I was arrested for messing with his hateful ilk in #Fredericton 14 March...after they'd been harassing a peaceful protest, hurling racist slurs, and toting racist shit about china on boards...
I squawked my #EctoOne siren (#GhostBusters nerd & #Feniex installer, on the way to being certified) and put on my hazards.
THEN, the hateful little #Chuddies started hitting my vehicle, multiple times, one woman had a weird fascination with talking about my penis (I 𝙝𝙤𝙥𝙚 my spouse is satisfied - she was still home when I got released ✌️😉).

#French Navy Charles De Gaulle Carrier Strike Group is in #ArabianSea near #Pakistan shores where #France has advised citizens to leave. France joined #Quad drills last week as French FM visited #India. Note: tense ties with PM #ImranKhan's govt precede #TLP riots. 🇵🇰🇫🇷
#Pakistan tries to assure #France & international community that French citizens are safe in the country. Pak is the only Muslim nation rocked by this type of violence, a sign of simmering extremism. PM #ImranKhan led anti-France criticism last year.

Many in Europe & the Mideast see PM #ImranKhan's statements last year against #France as having stoked anger and failed to contribute to resolving the problem. President #Erdogan was also critical but he recently improved his relations with Pres #Macron.

#Pakistan bans an Islamist party behind violent anti-#France protests that crippled normal life in major cities this week. Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan #TLP demanded expulsion of #French ambassador. Bold and unexpected move by PM #ImranKhan government.

#TLPNationWideProtest
The story, first reported by @AzazSyed, represents a welcome departure for PM #ImranKhan's #Pakistan government. Blacklisting #TLP will also help improve his govt's ties with #France which deteriorated last year:

#Pakistan's welcome decision to blacklist #TLP after violent anti-#France riots should lead to some introspection among Pakistani politicians & the public (yet to happen), starting with: Why is it that Pakistan is the *only* Muslim nation seeing this type of violence?
