We are connected and we must take care of each other:

A planeload of medical supplies, including masks and respirators, has arrived in #Italy from #China to help it deal with its growing #coronavirus crisis.

google.com/amp/s/mobile.r… #Covid_19 #CoronaOutbreak
A team of nine #Chinese medical staff arrived late on Thursday with some 30 tonnes of equipment on a flight organized by the Chinese Red Cross.

“In this moment of great stress, of great difficulty, we are relieved to have this arrival of supplies.“ #Covid_19 #ItalyCoronavirus
“In contrast to #China, #Italy's partners in the European Union earlier this month refused #Rome's requests for help with medical supplies as they looked to stockpile face masks and other equipment to help their own citizens.”

Thread: 1/7 I am very impressed by the behaviour of people in our neighbourhood in #Rome I went out for what I have now discovered is a permitted walk/run under #lockdown and made some observations.
Thread: 2/7 Many non-food shops (nearly all) are closed. Some shops/bars/restaurants serving food/drinks were open (until 6pm) but all serving staff were wearing masks and customers were respecting the one metre apart rule.
Thread: 3/7 I passed the 3 main supermarkets in the area and outside each of them was a queue of at least 20 people, all one metre apart, apparently waiting patiently for their turn to go in.

Was the story of Jesus based on #Romulus, the #Demigod Son of #Mars and the mythical founder of #Rome?
Um, #No, and here is why:
There are various versions of the story of how Romulus came to be. Some says he and his twin #Remus were the sons of Roma, a mythical heroine whom Rome was named after, and a feller named Latinus (I'm from Texas, I can get away with writing "Feller" (meaning "Fellow" to you
Yankees!), while others say that Aneas and Dexithea were his parents. Some have his mother as being a woman named Aemilia.
However, the main version of the tale has him being the son of Mars, the god of war, and Rhea Silvia, a mortal.
According to the Myth, Mars actually (Brace

[THREAD] Mais au fait, cette armure romaine qu'on voit partout dans les films et les BDs alors que c'est la moins utilisée par les romains, d'où qu'elle vient ?
Un thread qui sent bon le sable chaud, la jupette et l'image d’Épinal. 1/26
#thread #histoire #armure #rome #antiquité
Déjà, cette armure, c'est ce qu'on appelle une Lorica Segmentata, ou armure segmentée. Oui, ça semble évident à la voir comme ça oui. 2/26
L'armure romaine de base, la plus utilisée et la plus répandue, c'est... la cotte de mailles (=Lorica Hamata). Inventée par les celtes du Danube au IVème ou Vème siècle avJC, elle équipe MASSIVEMENT les troupes romaines pendant 7 siècles. Oui, 7 siècles. 3/26

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!
The author of the Periplus of the Erythrean Sea describes the ports of the Coromandal coast as follows. “Among the market-towns of these countries and harbour where the ships put in from Damirica and from the north, the most important are, in order as they lie, first Camara...1/2

06/01/2019 - 78 years ago today, the longest-serving #UnitedStates #President, #Franklin D. #Roosevelt (#FDR) addressed the 77th #Congress with his "#Four #Freedoms" speech with the intent to shift #US #foreign #policy from that of #neutrality to #interventionist.
#FDR promoted the idea that the people of the world, in all nations, shared entitlement to four freedoms: that of the freedom of speech and expression, the freedom of worship, the freedom from want and the freedom from fear.
#FDR is arguably one of the most 'successful' #US Presidents. Some would argue that on the basis of his numerous social policies such as 'the New Deal'. Others, however, would argue that his role during the second world war was more prevalent to his success & everlasting legacy.

1. Thoughts on #TheStorm and #Prophecy. I always look forward to Monday when #BenjaminFulford's weekly update comes out. He's sometimes wrong, but usually pretty close and VERY big picture. This week's blog at benjaminfulford.net confirm's we're close to #TheStorm
2. This paragraph stood out because it contains TWO predictions that may pertain to prophecy: - The #ChangingOfTimes by a global leader, and the rebuilding of the #Temple in #Jerusalem. You can read about these at prophecysigns.com/20-key-prophec…, but beware...
3. These interpretations come from the deceptive framework of #Jesuit #Futurism, which is the most common framework for interpreting prophecy today - so common in fact that most people don't know the name for it or that there are alternatives.

These Moroccan coins feature the so-called Seal of Solomon, often depicted as a hexagram, similar to the Star of David. The coins are dated respectively 1271 A.H. (1855) and 1290 A.H. (1873/4), minted by king 'Abd al-Raḥmān and his successor, Muḥammad IV of #Morocco.
The Seal of Solomon is the signet ring attributed to the Abrahamic king/prophet Solomon. It is said that Solomon used this ring to control the spirits and animals. The design as a hexagram is often depicted on medieval #Islamic banners, coins, drinking-cups or in mosques.
According to the Catalan Atlas (1375), the two Anatolian beyliks of respectively Karaman and Candar featured a Seal of Solomon on their flags. The symbol was popular among the Turkish beyliks, and was later used by the #Ottomans in their mosque decorations.

When visiting #Rome, tourists usually (and comprehensibly) focus on its #ancient remains. Today for the series #EarlyMedievalPills I'll take you through the #Carolingian city of Pope Paschal I (817-24) who, in only 7 years, left a permanent mark on #Roma's sacred topography 1/11
First I need to tell you about his family: he was the son of Bonosus and Theodora and he was very attached to his mother whom he wanted to be immortalised in the stunning #mosaics decorating that little jewel that is the Chapel of St Zeno in Santa Prassede #Roma 2/11
"Theodora Episcopa": lots of speculation about the reasons why she was called bishop-ess. Two possibilities: either Paschal I's father was a bishop and the honorific title extended to his wife, or Paschal paid homage to his mother by granting her a title of distinction 3/11

A central account used by all. Create drafts but do not send.

Play Station. X-box. Ham Radio.
They think their communications are not logged.

They killed Osama Bin Laden of course right before @BarackObama 2 election.

No pics were taken of his body. No dna. No finger prints and to top it off they dumped his body in the ocean.
@BarackObama didn't want to offend the #Muslims.

Yet Saddam Hussein it took 11 days.

From #Pericles to #Trump: A brief history of the West in 21 tweets (including this tweet). Purpose is to show how through the muddled history there is a direct ideological train connecting Western Civ that is meaningful to talk abt. Obvs lots is missing. it's a tweetstorm. (1/21)
753 BCE: A little town called #ROME is founded on the banks of the Tiber in #Italy. It will invent the word Emperor & become the standard for all future western empires. Its language is still used on the seal of the American President, along w/ its symbol of the Eagle. (2/21)
387 BCE: Plato founds his Academy for philosophy in #Athens. In between bouts of mansplaining & homoeroticism they trailblaze the concept of using logic & reason to make sense of the world & develop tools for doing so we still use today. (3/21)

Yesterday a big anti-terrorism operation took place in #Italy. Several suspect terrorists allegedly linked to ISIS have been detained or are wanted. They’re connected to Anis Amri, the perpetrator of 2016 Berlin terrorist attack, were allegedly planning to attack Italy 👉🏻THREAD
1. Everything started with the arrest on Wednesday of Elmahdi Halili, 23 years old, a guy born in Italy of Moroccan origin and living near Turin. He had been already arrested a few years ago for terrorist propaganda, he is the writer of the 1st Italian known ISIS manifesto

2. This time something was different though. Halili seemed to have upgraded his terrorist linked activity: in fact he allegedly turned into a jihadist recruiter, according to prosecutors, “raising” a dozen of potential terrorists to prepare a terrorist attack, likely in #Italy

1) Most of #history is a total lie, designed by people wanting to infer meaning of historical events in a modern context, as a means to elicit a response from you which suits their needs.

This is a story about the #rothschilds from the early 20th century.

#QAnon #GreatAwakening
2) Even within this tweetstorm are probably a lot of missing nuances. Do tell your stories.

I will start after #WWI and the Treaty of Versailles. It never made sense. Why divide #Germany in these pieces and leave it's people impoverished? Isn't this a recipe for resentment?
3) Why did the #Germans, even though a foreign boot never shot a boot on their soil, make overtures of peace to end the #war, while they were poised to win?

Their objectives were met.

Why was the #USA brought into WWI? Why were large payments sent to #communist #Russia? #QAnon
