Me and @TheSGEM spent 60 hours in the US visiting @startrektour to wish @WilliamShatner a #HappyBirthday. Here are some random thoughts on #Masks in a post-vaccination US with #DeltaVariant /1
@startrektour is in Ticonderoga in Eastern NY State. Pop 3,000 with 500 + visitors from NY State, surrounding states & as far away as California. At registration, @startrektour asked for proof of double vax status. I have no idea if they turned non-vaxed attendees away. /2
At indoor events masks were optional. @sgem & I wore masks all times. Max 5-10% wore masks. At packed event at local high school aud very few wore one. At #HappyBirthday dinner for @WilliamShatner @TheSGEM and I were the only ones wearing masks /3

Me and @thesgem spent the weekend @startrektour to visit beautiful replica sets of the USS Enterprise circa 1966 and to wish @WilliamShatner a 90th #HappyBirthday. This was non-essential travel to the US for <60 hours. Here is my #Covid_19 thread FYI /1
@TheSGEM bought the tickets months ago when we fully expected to travel w/o restrictions. Sadly, #Covid_19 and the #DeltaVariant meant US/Canada border restrictions remain in place. What follows is what we had to do be able to go and how it went. /2
Cross border travel by land is more challenging but not impossible, so air travel was option 1. Our destination was Ticonderoga in Eastern NY State. The closest intl airport is Burlington VT. Toronto-Burlington flight options are few and involve weird stops in DC or Detroit. /3

#HappyBirthday #PVSindhu
1/ A young Sindhu fell in love with badminton serendipitously, when she accompanied her father, a former Arjuna Award-winning player, to the volleyball court in Hyderabad, and became more fascinated by what was happening in the badminton courts next door.
2/ She started playing occasionally, and started winning often, until the news of fellow Hyderabad icon Pullela Gopichand's victory at the All-England badminton championships in 2001 converted her fascination into an obsession.
3/ Desperate to train under Gopichand, she managed to impress him enough for him to grant her solo sessions by the time she was 10. Back then, her routine was waking up at 3 a.m. to travel 27 km from Secunderabad to his academy for a solo 2-hour session that started at 4.30 am.

#HappyBirthday #SundarPichai

"My father spent the equivalent of a year's salary on my plane ticket to the US so I could attend Stanford. It was my first time ever on a plane," Google CEO Sundar Pichai once said in an interview. (1/8)
For many, Sundar Pichai's story would seem like something straight out of a movie, a tale of a boy born without a silver spoon in the mouth going on to achieve one of the most coveted positions in the world through sheer hard work. (2/8)
Sundar was born in Chennai to Regunatha and Lakshmi Pichai. His mother worked as a stenographer before she had children; his father was an electrical engineer and managed a factory that made electrical components. (3/8)

Vorhin habe ich hier von @Tobbelwobbel und @nordseemadchen gelesen, die sich vor einem Jahr auf Twitter kennengelernt haben. #HappyBirthday @Tobbelwobbel 🥳
Dabei ist mir eingefallen, dass ich am Donnerstag gar nicht erzählt habe, dass ich mich nicht nur für missglückte Online-Kommunikation unter Liebenden interessiere. Wenn Personen von ihrer Liebesgeschichte erzählen, frage ich manchmal vorsichtig nach, ob sie - natürlich
anonymisiert - den Interaktionsverlauf in der Kontaktsanbahnungsphase für die linguistische Analyse "spenden" würden. Anonymisiert heißt, dass alles getilgt wird, was Rückschlüsse auf die Identität der Interagierenden zulässt - auch Ortsnamen.

Let me tell you a Little Story about a Big Storyteller.

This is about Rusty & Me.

Circa 2015.

On a visit to Indian Military Academy, Dehradun, to meet an old buddy posted there, I took the opportunity to call up the Manager of #Rusty to seek an appointment.. ©️ @MajorAkhill - 2015

..I didn't wish to disturb good old Rusty as though he is known to be accommodative, he prefers a selected time to welcome visitors to his home given his love for solitude.

I just had 1 Day & #Landour was a good 2 hours from #IMA

I was told that he was away to Delhi and.. ©️ @MajorAkhill - 2015

..would be back, tentatively, by next morning.

Disappointed by the lady luck ditching me, as usual, I decided to meet the Langoors of Landour. They were the only other famous beings of Landour apart from Rusty.

I perched myself on a rock at Laal Tibba & immersed myself.. ©️ @MajorAkhill

Très peu d'artistes ont gagné à la fois Oscar, Grammy, Emmy, et Golden Globe. C'est dire la place que tient #BarbraStreisand dans la culture US contemporaine (et dans mon panthéon personnel, j'avoue). #HappyBirthday
#LastRT Et je dois concéder que la reprise ahurissante de #TheWayWeWere par #Beyonce toute chose sous les yeux d'1 #BarbraStreisand authentiquement émue... j'y reste à chaque fois😉🙏.
#TheEnd Et pour les jeunes générations qui ne l'auraient jamais vu, The Way We Were (Nos Plus Belles années) de Pollack pour 1 soirée confinement à 2- avec 1 gros paquet de Kleenex à portée- me semble plus que recommandable...(oui, papy Boomer!😉)

Mi propósito para 2020 será el mismo que tuve en 2019 (ver una película al dia) peeeeero para subir la apuesta añadiré ver también toooodos los extras de las pelis que tengo en formato físico. Sí, eso incluye todas las pistas de audiocomentarios.
Tengo más de 180 largometrajes
Empiezo con #SilencioDesdeElMal y resulta que no tiene extras. Not bad, así compenso cuando me toque ver las docenas de horas de extras de la trilogia de El señor de los anillos. La revisión me da que pensar lo que le gusta a James Wan las viejas chungas y moñecos creepys
Contiene cortos animados con anécdotas de los creadores, un video de Buzz en la @NASA_es y el globo de Buzz en el desfile de acción de gracias de New York. Bravo por la originalidad de contenidos. Revisionar #ToyStory por enésima vez es gloria

Fair warning... Get ready for a thread celebrating H.H. the @DalaiLama's 84th birthday 🎂! Performances included! Honored to join @IRF_Ambassador, @AmbDMitchell, @USAID & @officeoftibet @NgodupTsering7 on the visit of the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts to the U.S. & Canada.
First, a #quote. Whether #HongKongProtests or #girlseducation in South Asia, or a myriad of issues in #America, don't forget:

"If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito." ~H.H. the Dalai Lama

Next: Get ready for some video! ⬇️
A beautiful evening begins w/ the Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts (TIPA), founded by the Dalai Lama in India, in exile from Tibet, in 1959. Then the Tibetan Music, Dance & Drama Society, it was established to preserve Tibetan artistic heritage, esp. opera, dance & music.

#Nigeria''s @MBuhari has begun moves to officially extend the tenure of Ibrahim Idris as Inspector-General of @PoliceNG. Under Service Rules, Idris shd have retired on the 35th anniv of his enlistment, 3 Jan but has continued to run the police regardless.…
s. 215(1)(a) of #Nigeria's constitution says: an Inspector-General of @PoliceNG shall be appointed by the President on advice of the Police Council from among serving members of the NPF.

IGP Idris can't be lawfully extended cos he's no longer serving & Police Council hasn't met.
s. 216(2) of the Constitution is v clear: "Before making any appointment to the office of the Inspector-General of @PoliceNG or removing him from office the President shall consult the Nigeria Police Council." A meeting of the Police Council is mandatory pre-condition.

On this day, June 25th, 1952, my mom, Joyce was born. Today would've been her 66th birthday. But sadly, she will forever be 27 b/c she shot & killed herself on Sept 8th 1979. This is the 39th birthday that I don't get to spend with her.
This the 39th year that I won't get to sing #HappyBirthday to her. Its only the 4th year that I've actually known her birthdate. Thanks to the @AMarch4OurLives students & an audience of strangers, I finally got to enjoy singing my mom Happy Birthday.
We take those moments for granted, but for me, this will be with me for the rest of my life. A group of strangers felt compelled to do something so amazing & life-changing for me & my mom. To allow me the chance to just live in that moment & enjoy something that I've never done

Commonwealth Summit is underway but do you know the real reason behind this summit? Yes its the Queen's birthday but do you know member nations have been summoned there for a secret meeting at Windsor Castle? Why is this being kept hidden from Indians?…
#Brexit has plunged Britain into chaos so a re-branding of Commonwealth is in progress. Do you know a very special role has been designated for India in this Empire 2.0 as Jewel in Commonwealth which even certain Indian experts are propagating?…
There is no reason Commonwealth should exist unless it is to perpetuate same colonial legacy that plundered half the world and specifically Sone ki Chidiya – India. Do Indians not remember history of your ancestors who gave their lives for your future?…
