So I'm rewatching 300 to see if it's appropriate for use in my classroom (the point will be deconstructing its problems and stereotypes, examining how modern retellings change the past). Already seeing a lot of potentially fun problems, so here's a series of tweets on the issue
We start with Leonidas as the example of the agoge system of Spartan "education" when the firstborn son of the king is literally the only Spartan who does not go through the agoge.
Although the complex situation of Leonidas' succession means he probably didn't qualify, he also would not have been hailed as king then on his completion of the agoge

This Leave vote IS split! That's the point!
52% voted to Leave the EU. That means they wanted a different relationship with the EU.
If that "different relationship" doesn't have the support of at least 48% of the UK, then being an EU Member is still the most popular relationship.
Our relationship with the EU is defined in the treaties. Our new one has no treaty yet. So until you can find a specific path of leaving that has the support of 48%, the Will of the People is for our current relationship.
"Yeah but the EU is going to become a federal superstate" so our relationship will change.
European Union Act 2011 says there can be no transfers of power to the EU without a UK referendum.

With the upcoming Neil-Gaiman-orchestrated "Dreaming" line at DC comics, I thought it might be time to revisit Neil Gaiman's wonderful "Sandman."

(Sandman: Overture #1.)
It's funny, I was just thinking today about the late sixties paranoia about cultural psychosis and insanity.

Modern pop culture is similarly fixated on the idea of insanity rippling through the popular unconscious.

"Legion", "Westworld", etc.

(Sandman: Overture #2.)
It's almost surprising that it took as long as it did for Gaiman to write for "Doctor Who."

Gaiman's abstract/symbolic cosmos is very much in keeping with Russell T. Davies' approach to concepts like "the Time War."

Without further ado, threading of a family miracle. 👇🇺🇸⛵🛐
A few years before the bicentennial, my grandfather, George, had an idea for one of his favorite eating establishments, ‘The Sign of the Beefcarver’.
My grandparents and my mother made several crafts on display there, Betsy Ross and minute men figurines; crafty nick-nacks for the wall and mantle keeping with a colonial theme.

1/ Whenever I ask for evidence of Trump-Russia collusion, I get this circular-reasoning response:
How do you know that there was no collusion?
My answer: I'm NOT claiming there was no collusion, but I see #ZEROEvidence that Trump colluded. SHOW me your EVIDENCE!
2/ If I were to claim that you murdered someone, I would need to provide evidence of this. My claim does not make it have some sort of merit. If you insist you did not do this and want me to stop pushing such as accusation in public b/c it really did not happen, that makes sense.
3/ Would an innocent person remain silent in the face of a massive campaign by those who don't like that person making unsubstantiated claims? Would they not want to put an end to it? If I were #Trump, I would want this thing shut down too as it looks to be a witch hunt.

Companies in Technopark and Infopark, Kerala are hiring massively, especially freshers. Unable to find candidates even remotely employable.
Had a lot of discussions with HR friends and such, Kerala, Bangalore. There are some things that need to be known about kids these days.
Most Btech graduates are unemployable. Most even can't speak a proper English sentence. But we all know that. What we don't notice is that +
