We all know that Kareena Kapoor is expecting a second child.
We know that Anushka Sharma is expecting her first child.
We also know which actor wear which designer cloth...

But do you know about Cadet Amit Raj?

I know your answer and I don't completely blame you for this. We only get to see sh*t irrelevant news but nothing else.

On 7th of Dec, Cadet Amit Raj of Sainik School(Purulia) was at his hometown in Bihar when he heard people shouting at his neighbourhood.

Went out to see a house was on fire. Without thinking and entered the house to save 3 children who were trapped inside. He sustained 85% of burn by the time he saved the first two children and decided to save the third one.

#SaturdayThoughts: It's Monkey Week for me. We go back to classes right away in the new year, so I usually use the week between Christmas and New Years to get some monkeys off my back that will plague me all next semester if I don't.
2/ Usually involves making sure all my work clothes are clean and ironed, that I have a good backlog of meals in the freezer for the busy nights, etc.
3/ This year, I'll be added redoing my spring courses into HyFlex to accommodate COVID needs. I need a detailed plan for each and to learn a couple of technologies I want to use.

Britain in the 1970s: Raleigh choppers, lumberjack jackets and Findus crispy pancakes for tea. And one magazine really summed up the spirit of '70s Britain for me...

This is the story of Look-In! #SaturdayThoughts
Children's TV reflected the British class system: the BBC was seen as worthy, educational and safe; ITV was considered brash, vulgar and rude. Some strict parents wouldn't even let their children watch the 'commercial' channel!
However by the 1970s ITV children's programmes had really started to hit their stride. And unlike the prim BBC they weren't afraid to be subversive.

Noisy, crazy and often very funny they stated to hoover up viewers...

Beloved, let us love one another for Yahweh is love. This is real love, not that we loved Yahweh, but he loved us & sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins so that we might have eternal life through him. Since Yahweh loved us that much, then we are under obligation to
Love one another. But if someone has this world's good, and sees his brother in need but shows no compassion, how can Yahweh's love be in that person?
Beloved, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth. I John 3 & 4.

#TheResistance #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty…
SERIOUSLY folks, how the hell is BLOCKING a legit 60-count indictment on SERIOUS FELONY charges for sex crimes against MINORS, just a case of "poor judgement" by #Trump's buddy #AlexAcosta?

#TheResistance #Epstein #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty
Also remember the line that #Epstein got a SUPER SWEETHEART deal because he was some big deal #FBI informant? TOTAL MYTH!!👇

"The gun is GOOD! The Penis is EVIL!" bellows a huge stone head floating over the Irish countryside. It's quite a strange start to any movie, but it's about to get even stranger...

In honour of Sean Connery I look back at his most fascinating film: Zardoz. #SaturdayThoughts
In 1970 director John Boorman began work on a Lord Of The Rings film for United Artists. It would be an unusual adaption; The Beatles would be the Hobbits and Kabuki theatre would open the movie. Alas the studio said 'No', but the idea of making a fantasy film stuck with Boorman.
So in 1972, following the commercial success of Deliverance, John Boorman started work on Zardoz - a fantasy film into which he would cram many unorthodox ideas. Initially Burt Reynolds was to play the lead role of Zed, but pulled out citing other filming commitments.

A life lessons thread-
One of the greatest advice I've ever gotten in life and career is:

"Be intentional "

Being intentional just means being deliberate and purposeful in the actions we take.
You see, like most people, I started my career 'freestyling'

The truth is the higher you climb in career the more you realise a key ingredient to success is being intentional. Few people learn this from mentors early on, while others pick this up as they move through life.
Being intentional means many things:
It means conducting a community engagement project or volunteering a year before you apply for a Chevening award or any scholarship to build your profile and improve your chances ( not forgetting the altruism involved of course)

Congratulations, fellow queer people and feminists, on (checks notes)... blaspheming the Holy Spirit... by existing, apparently.

Note also that the old "black civil rights activists are commies" trope is alive and well

"If you do not consider abortion, especially as it is currently being promoted/human trafficking worthy deal-breakers, you are not a Christian."

The conflation of abortion with human trafficking is a clear indicator of QAnon influence. You cannot reason with these people.
Note too how frequently the evangelical comments Fea showcases invoke the argumentum ad "fake Christians" against Piper and "liberal theologians." Sometimes with a nice dose of anti-Semitic "Freemason" conspiracy theorizing thrown in.

Today in pulp I ask: is it time to bring back the leisure suit?

Let's find out... #SaturdayThoughts Image
Now we all know what a man's lounge suit is, but if we're honest it can be a bit... stuffy. Formal. Businesslike. Not what you'd wear 'in da club' as the young folks say. Image
So for many years tailors have been experimenting with less formal, but still upmarket gents attire. The sort of garb you could wear for both a high level business meeting AND for listening to the Moody Blues in an espresso bar. Something versatile. Image

Dear Nigerian Youth,
If they say it requires money to run for office, we will match them. Have they not heard of crowdfunding?

#ReformTheNigeriaPolice #ArrestKillerOfficers #OtedolaBridge #Saturdaythoughts #osinbajo #RECONTRUCTNIGERIA #SecureNorrh #AirportRoadProtest
If they say it requires an elaborate party structure, we will remind them who makes up the pillars. Have they heard of organic growth?
#LeadGenerationInitiative #Roddy #EndPoliceBrutalityinNigeria #EndSARS #EndSWAT #CongratulationsNigerians
If they say we don't understand the issues, we will take it a step further, demystify and solve the issues for them. Is governance rocket science?

If they say we are too young, we will remind them that Nigeria is one casestudy where recycling, failed. How old is Mark Zuckerberg?

3-"In a gold-adorned ballroom filled with Republican donors, an Indian-born industrialist from Illinois pressed Mr. Trump to tweet about easing immigration rules for highly skilled workers and their children.

Grapes family are one of the oldest cultivated plants.
They are classified as true berries due to having fleshy pericarp.

Lets do some GRAPES THREAD AND LEARN.........

#SaturdayMotivation #MasculinitySaturday #HappySabbath
#hudumaday #SaturdayThoughts #KOTLoyals
Grapes come in different colours most commonly Green, red, black yellow, pink amd purple.


Don't plant grapes for fun, invest in it and wait for returns 🍇🍇🍇

Message Mynzagric on WhatsApp.…
Grapes are much easier to manage and looking at how they grow and the space they occupy then clearly, you can actually intercrop them with seasonal legumes like beans...
You shouldn't intercrop them with crops that need alot of water.
Introduce intercropping between 1-2 years.

Today in pulp... what exactly IS pulp? What does this word mean and is it important?

Let's try and find out... #SaturdayThoughts
'Pulp' is a term for a type of basic paper stock, made from wood chips or plant fibres. By the 1890s mass production, improved distribution methods and advances in printing combined to make it a viable stock for cheap magazines, amongst other things.
And in the 1890s cheap story magazines, printed on pulp paper, began to appear. Low prices and widespread distribution meant pulp magazines could be a viable business, even if margins were tight.

A #SaturdayThoughts 🧵 on a common #Flu FAQ.

Q: What about people who get a seasonal flu vaccine and still get sick with flu symptoms?

A: There are several reasons why someone might get flu symptoms, even after being vaccinated against flu...👇🏽
One reason is that you can become ill from other viruses besides flu- e.g. rhinoviruses, which are associated w/ common cold, cause symptoms similar to flu, & also spread and cause illness during #flu season. The flu vaccine only protects against flu, not other illnesses. (2/?)
A second explanation is that you can be exposed to #flu viruses shortly before getting vaccinated, or in the 2 week period afterwards that it takes to develop immune protection. This exposure may mean you become ill with flu before protection from vaccination takes effect. (3/?)

Time for a pulp countdown now, and today it's my top 10 British tabs!

Smoke 'em if you got 'em... #SaturdayThoughts
At #10: John Player Superkings! A night at the bingo wasn't complete without eight cards, a bottle of Double Maxim and a JPS Super on the go. Quiet now, they're doing the link-up...
At #9: House of Commons Straight Cut! These unfiltered beauties - now sadly discontinued - simply reek of Hansard, balance of payments deficits and the three day week. Surely the mother of all parliamentary smokes...

Never Go with the flow.!

Life in modern society can be very frantic. But There is no need to rush, and no need to try to win the rat race. Remember, there’s nowhere you need to be, nothing you need to do and no one you need to impress. Sometimes, we cause ourselves anxiety
by holding ourselves up to expectations society puts forward for us. You don’t need a group of 10 friends that you get together with each weekend. You don’t need a Twilight relationship. Holding expectations of achieving a cookie-cutter life only breeds stress and confusion.
Learning to completely let go and relax will be one of the best things you can do to creating a happy life for yourself.

#BREAKING:Now we find out that #Trump has not only LIED to the public about the seriousness of #COVID19 since February, he has also used his political appointees to TINKER WITH #CDC reports

#TheResistance #SaturdayThoughts #FBRParty via @politico
On top of that, #Trump KNOWS #COVID19 disproportionately affects Blacks & Browns but that doesn't stop him, probably encourages him, to hold these SUPER-SPREADER maskless rallies

Thread on #JobSearch
A person from Mumbai contacted me here on twitter asking I meet & help him. He came down yesterday from Mumbai to meet me. It was pouring cats & dogs, yet he came 150kms from Mumbai to Pune ON a BIKE, in that heavy rain, only to SEEK a JOB! 1n
I asked K(name) if he could stay the night, so I could make calls for him today. (As he came on a 2 wheeler in rains, he was v late). K was desperate, stayed & met me today. I started making calls.
K worked all his life in automobile sales so I called car dealership owners. 2n
I called all the BIG BOYS who have the BIG CAR dealerships. K drew Rs 1lac in his last job at a Hyundai dealership as a manager & now jobless since Jan 2020. He has his house EMI to pay. Not one dealer is hiring. They are all downsizing. I told them give him 40%
All said NO! 3n

*#शाहजहां को उसके बेटे #औरंगजेब ने 7 वर्ष तक कारागार में रखा था। वह उसको पीने के लिए नपा-तुला पानी एक फूटी हुई मटकी में भेजता था तब शाहजहाँ ने अपने बेटे #औरंगजेब को पत्र लिखा जिसकी अंतिम पंक्तियां थी-*

"ऐ पिसर तू अजब मुसलमानी,
ब पिदरे जिंदा आब तरसानी,
आफरीन बाद हिंदवान सद बार,
मैं देहदं पिदरे मुर्दारावा दायम आब"
हे पुत्र ! तू भी विचित्र मुसलमान है जो अपने जीवित पिता को पानी के लिए भी तरसा रहा है। शत शत बार प्रशंसनीय हैं वे 'हिन्दू' जो अपने मृत पूर्वजो को भी पानी देते

फिर भी शिया, सुन्नी, अहमदिया, सूफी, मुजाहिद्दीन जैसे 13 फिरके एक दुसरे के खून के प्यासे। सबकी अलग #मस्जिदें। साथ बैठकर #नमाज नहीं पढ़ सकते। धर्म के नाम पर एक-दूसरे का कत्ल करने को सदैव आमादा।
