This Burj in village #Ghungrana of #Ludhiana is the remnant of a #fortress which existed at the spot. This tower marks the spot where #Metcalf was given the first audience by #MaharajaRanjitSingh in 1804.ย The fortress was destroyed by the #English, somewhere in 1849-50,#Punjab
As per Lepel H. Griffin
#MaharajahRanjitSingh marched by way of Ambala to Naraingarh, a strong fort held by Kour Kishan Singh, which he invested.For nearly three weeks it held out, and in one of the assaults, Sirdar Fatah Singh,Kalianwala, one of Ranjit Singh's bravest Generals๐Ÿ‘‡
was mortally wounded. After the capture of the place, it was conferred with its surrounding villages on
Sirdar Fatah Singh Ahluwalia, the estate being valued at Rs. 12,580 a year.

Instead of the annual press conference, #Putin talked to the #Kremlin pool (BTW, since today, they have an official dress code). Here is a short thread about what we learned:
- #Russian economy is resilient because its deficits are smaller than those of the U.S. and China 1/
- the price cap will not affect budget revenues: "we're still selling at these prices." the reciprocal law he will sign on Mon-Tueโ€ฆ 2/
- "we won't throw money away: macro stability is paramount," which means that the ultra-conservative policy of #Fortress Russia will continue.

Itโ€™s simple. Here are my favorite releases. Iโ€™ve broken out by sub-genre and kept it to the cream of the crop. This is Top Gun. Best of the best.



Those releases that donโ€™t neatly fit a category are often the most interesting. #Mehenet #FuegoEterno #Dakhma #Empyrium #Baazlvaat

Baazlvaat was clearly the discovery of the year. Super raw production with some ingenious songwriting spanning styles


All flavors of doom here from Stoner to Sabbathian. #Wheel & #Monolord bringing actual songs with concrete riffs, #MethadoneSkies with post rock psych, and #Wedge & #IndicaBlues stoning the place up. Indica brought together all the above thru a desert filter

1) #Trump's deals are like cockroaches. If you see one irregularity, there are bound to be at least a hundred more. Take for example, #Deutschebank. Invested $600M in #TrumpTowerChicago (and is documented as a #HotMoney conduit for #Putin's mob).โ€ฆ
2) #DeutscheBank loaned $600M for #ChicagoTrumpTower when no domestic banks would lend to the bankrupt casino operator. There would have had to be some concurrences by DeutscheBank for #Trump to get #Mezzanine financing from #FortressCreditCorp to finish the project. #Resist
3) so why did #FortressCreditCorporation opt to take a $104M bath on a $150M note rather than snarl #Trump in court? #DeutscheBank maybe? Perhaps a secret backfill agreement to make #Fortress whole? And where is only logical source of funds for such an agreement? #Putin.

Tonight I'm going to share highlights from the 2010 "Scenarios for the Future of Technology & Int'l Development" report produced by The Rockefeller Foundation & Global Business Network. Not just the "Lock Step" scenario, but all 4 scenarios. [54 page report]
Following Event 201 (Oct 18 2019), we must concede that the ruling class has been gifted with phenomenal and prophetic intuitions & insights. (They truly are the chosen ones.) Thus it is worthwhile, even mandatory, to study their scenario exercises & simulations.
"We believe that scenario planning has great potential for use in philanthropy to identify unique interventions... scenario planning allows us to achieve impact more effectively." [p 4]
