A #ConstitutionDay Thread.

September 17th is Constitution Day. By federal law all educational institutions that receive federal funds (elementary to university) are required to teach about the US Constitution. There is no penalty for not doing it, but the goal is to educate.
As a law professor and parent, it struck me that there were not many books for elementary age kids about Constitution Day. You go to the library and there is always a section on upcoming holidays, but not much for Constitution Day. It made me sad.
I co-opted my son (then in elementary school) to help me write one to fill the gap and we came up with a picture #book idea “Liberty Lincoln Jay Shares Constitution Day” about a girl who shares the special day and it’s meaning with her class.

5 lessons we learn from the book called "The courage to be disliked"
-thread-👇#booktwt #books Image
1) We each have our own identity -
Every person in this world has a different unique identity so you should don't compare yourself with others. Image
2) Everything in this world is subjective because if the Water temperature is 60 degree Celsius if you drink it in summer than it seems cool if you drink it in winter it seems warm.

I recently read "The Monk who sold his Ferrari" by our beloved Robin Sharma. Needless to say, it's a very well written book with lots of values.

Here are 5 life lessons from the above-mentioned book.


#productivity #growth #books #reading

In search of wisdom and happiness, the Protagonist, a seven-figure-earning lawyer, surrenders his possessions and traveled to the Himalayan foothills to study the wisdom of the Sages.

It is a story about materialistic success transforming into true prosperity.
1. Positive Thoughts

The quality of your life is determined by the quality of your thoughts. Mastering your mind means seeing setbacks as opportunities.

Ok here are my top pics for #books in the life sciences. There are many more good ones, I had to make hard choices to get it to a manageable number. Not saying I agree with everything in every book - these are ones that stretch thinking in useful ways.
Some are very old; they have important ideas you will not find in modern sources. I will also put this list up on my website and add to it. Possibly links will be added later, and eventually some top picks in other fields as well. Sorry, I know it would be great to have a blurb
each one; I just don't have the time. In no particular order:

१) किसी समाज या राष्ट्र में व्यक्ति का आचार-विचार उसके राजा (शासक) से प्रेरित होता है।

राजा का यह दायित्व है कि वह दंड नीति आदि के द्वारा समाज के समक्ष आदर्श प्रस्तुत करे ताकि एक आदर्शात्मक राज्य की स्थापना हो सके।
२) राजा यदि अराजकतावादियों पर कार्रवाई नहीं करता तो यह माना जाता है कि राजा स्वयं अपने स्वार्थ सिद्धि के लिए अराजकता को प्रेरित कर रहा है।

राजा का यह दायित्व सनातन काल से भारतीय शासन स्तंभ का आधार रहा है। उपनिषद काल में इसे और प्रमुखता से स्थापित किया गया।
३) शुक्राचार्य ने तो काल का कारण भी राजा को माना है। शुक्र ने समाज का धर्माचरण, आचार-विचार आदि के प्रति संपूर्ण दायित्व राजा में अर्पित किया है। वह लिखते हैं:-

"आचारप्रेरको राजा होतत्कालस्य कारणम्।
यदि काल: प्रमाणं हि कस्माद्धर्मोऽस्ति कर्तृषु।।" (शु.नी.१/२२)

(1/8) आत्म-नियंत्रण

आफ्रिकन सवानामध्ये, जेव्हा आई जिराफ आपल्या बाळाला जन्म देते तेव्हा ती जमिनीवर बसत नाही
, त्याऐवजी ते आपल्या उंच पायांवर उभ्या उभ्याच बाळाला जन्म देते आणि नुकतंच जन्मलेले कोवळ बाळ जमिनीवर धाडकन पडत
आठ ते नऊ फूट उंची आणि पायाखालची घट्ट रखरखीत जमिन कोवळ्या
(2/8) वासराला पडल्यामुळे खूप वेदना होतात पण आईचे हृदय आपल्या मुलाच्या वेदना पाहून वितळत नाही ती तिच्या बाळाला आपल्या घट्ट खुरांनी लाथा मरायला सुरुवात करते
अर्भक वासरू वेदनेने कळवळत आणि जमिनीवर लोळत ते उठण्याचा प्रयत्न करू लागतं.
आई जिराफ अजूनही धीर धरत नाही. ती पुन्हा
(3/8) तिच्या बाळाला लाथ मारते आणि जबरदस्तीने जमिनीवर पाडते
वासरू पुन्हा पाय घट्ट रोऊन उभ राहत तेव्हाच ती थांबते.
आई जिराफचे हे कठोर वर्तन आपल्याला अत्यंत क्रूर वाटू शकते. पण
आईला माहित आहे की सिंह येण्यापूर्वी मुलाला चालायला शिकण्यासाठी फक्त काही मिनिटेच तिच्याकडे आहेत.

1/ I would like to take a couple tweets to promote the #Ukrainian #film #archive preserved by the Dovzhenko Centre. The archive includes tons of historical information as well as the legacy of many Ukrainians that are no longer with us.
2/ I do this for three reasons. Firstly, to fight against #Russians attempts to eliminate #Ukrainian culture. We know now that #Pedoputin aims to destroy #Ukraine legacy, history, and culture. He won’t succeed. Furthermore, he already lost. Ukraine will prevail, #UkraineWillWin.
3/ Secondly, to request all #Ukrainians and all friends of #Ukraine in possession of films in danger of deterioration to consider the Centre Film Fund as a possible repository. Your films could be safeguarded there for future generations.

Don’t worry about being original.
Plagiarism is stealing from one source. Originality is stealing from many.
Making a perfect copy is humanely impossible. Seek #Inspiration whenever you can find it.

Remember that #Inspiration is active though.
Play different #Games (#TTRPG, #Videogame, #BoardGame, just play).
Watch weird stuff (#Movies, #TVseries, #Documentaries).
Read #Books (#Fiction, #NonFiction, #Fantasy, #Crime, #Horror).
Just watch people (great for #NPCs).

Don’t worry too much about what’s good and bad. Look for stuff to steal, modify, reinterpret, corrupt.
A game you don’t like to play may teach you something yet.
A movie you don’t care about might have a cool character.
Keep your eyes open. We don’t see a lot.

7 books I read during June: A thread

(With brief synopses and ratings)

My goal is to read 5 books every month. This month I exceeded that goal, partly due to reading some shorter books, and also a need to get my mind off the state of the world for a while...
The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals by Michael Pollan.

A deep dive into where our food comes from and how we can make healthy/ethical choices about food. Super interesting and definitely has changed the way I eat.

The Most Good You Can Do by Peter Singer.

Discussions of effective altruism, a movement that emphasizes donating large portions of one’s income and maximizing lives saved/improved per dollar. A great read if you’re into philosophy.

1/ Over the years, Waceke, has received emails, phone calls, and all sorts of communication with questions about personal finance and the journey to financial freedom. She wants to
share some of these questions and answers with you.

2/ Question: I am employed and want to transition into business. What business should I start? What should I prepare for?
Answer: No one can actually tell you what business to start. The right question is what problem can you solve? That's where opportunity is found.
3/ Look at what you are interested in solving or are passionate about that matches your interests, gifts, and resources. Don't pressure yourself to get it completely right the first time but taking the step is important even if it starts out as a side hustle.

‘Father’ is the noblest title a man can be given. It is more than a biological role. It signifies a patriarch, a leader, an exemplar, a confidant, a teacher, a hero & friend.”

Some #books that I simply adore due to the way they express the bond of a father & child
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance
- one of the best books written in the last century, it tells us endearing story of a father son bond while they undertake a Bike journey across America.

Fav Quote - Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.
The Pursuit of Happyness- -One of my favourites, the book vividly tells story of a persistent father, Chris Gardner looking to create a better life for his son under all conditions and not giving up.

Fav Quote - The world is your oyster. It's up to you to find the pearls.

Thread : What care a #law #student should take while sitting in library, and digesting law #books? How should he navigate through thousands of books in law library of #college? What books to read and what to ignore?

1) The topic of this thread itself is complicated.
2/ But once I was also a law student. (In 1977). All the law books in law college library amazed me! It looked as if each book was radiating powers of the good over the evil. I had dreams of power and wealth and these books looked like my passport to a golden future.
3/ Do not blame me, if after reading this thread you become demotivated to read those AMAZING law books.

I may have tell you something which may not be found in ANY law book of ANY law college.
