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

While the DEVELOPED world thinks that having an Iphone, having the fuel guzzler SUVs, buying new clothes instead of washing the existing ones, having A/C in every nook and corner of their habitats is their BASIC necessity.

Today the developed world has this luxury to think about environment when million others still think of their next meal !!!

In the words of #IndiraGandhi: "Poverty is the worst polluter" & that "we cannot let our people die of hunger for the sake of Climate"

First pay for the pollution YOU people have generated for the sake of development YOU people are enjoying

WE will not compromise with what's our right that is our development.

Was the #Roman #God #Mars born of a virgin?

#No, and here is why:
You see, In Roman myth, Juno/Hera was ticked off that Jupiter/Zeus, on his own, gave birth to Athena (he swallowed Metis, a titan which he was married to (and was pregnant with his child), and then suffered the mother of all headaches (no pun intended), and when his forehead was
cut open, Athena came out, fully in armor). So Juno/Her went to the goddess Flora, telling about what her husband (repeat: Husband) Jupiter/Zeus did, and asked for her help in conceiving a child without his aid. Flora gave her a magic flower, and boom! She was pregnant. However

@godless_mom Heaven is just a fairy story for those afraid of the LIGHT

At #MAGA rally in #Florida that is the official kick-off event for @realDonaldTrump #Election2020 campaign, @VP is warming up the crowd directly before the appearance of @POTUS.
Actually @POTUS gets introduced by @FLOTUS.
"If we had three or four empty seats, the fake news would say we didn't fill up the arena," according to @POTUS who adds there were 120,000 requests for seats in Orlando tonight's #MAGA rally.

Planet with the highest degrees in your Sidereal/Vedic chart signifies YOU/Soul.

Your Vedic BirthChart is the contract your Soul signed to get the body you got to experience.

Its just that our mind in not consciously AWARE of this agreement, hence it wanders...contd
If #Sun is your #Atmakaraka , Planet with the most degrees in your sidereal/#VedicBirthChart:

Your Soul is here to experience authority, leadership, respect, appreciation, recognition

Challenges - Avoiding Egoistic behavior, Learning to be humble
If #Moon is your #Atmakaraka , Planet with the most degrees in sidereal/#VedicBirthChart:

Your Soul is here to experience emotional support, happiness, mental peace, Romance

Challenges - Learning to deal with negative thoughts, emotional balance, keeping calm, practicality

Me revoilà ! Donc ce matin, premiers cours de la semaine, en #2de. Objectif de la séance : comprendre ce qui distingue deux allèles. Outil : un logiciel de comparaison de séquences (déjà utilisé la semaine dernière). Modalité : tâche complexe collaborative... et martienne.
Bon en soi, la notion n'est pas la plus compliquée du monde. Je pourrais la formuler (ou trouver un élève qui sait déjà), la faire noter dans le cahier, et considérer que c'est bon c'est compris.
Spoiler : enseigner (les sciences, mais pas que), c'est pas ça.
Les objectifs vont au delà de la notion. Il y a l'utilisation d'un logiciel, certes, mais ce n'est qu'un outil. Il faut surtout poser un problème qui fasse sens et faire en sorte que les élèves construisent la notion. Ça veut dire comprendre ce qu'on fait et pourquoi on le fait.

#SpaceScience #ImageOfTheWeek: Grab your #3D glasses & dive into a river delta on #Mars! 💦 This recent image was taken by @ExoMars_CaSSIS onboard our @ESA_TGO, currently investigating the planet’s atmosphere & mapping subsurface water-ice. #ScienceAtESA 📷esa.int/spaceinimages/…
Our @ESA_TGO is part one of the joint @esa @roscosmos #ExoMars programme. Coming soon is @ESA_MarsRover, set for launch in 2020 and landing on #Mars in 2021 in a quest to look for evidence for life buried underground. esa.int/exomars #ScienceAtESA #Space19Plus
More exciting #MarsRover news to come later this week..! 🔎

Got to see #Starship under construction today!
@SpaceX wants to send humans to the Moon & Mars, they are building Starship to complete the mission. The first hopper test launch will take place in Boca Chica (Brownsville, Texas) around March/April of this year. #BFR #HappyNewYear
Took these photos today. This #Starship “hopper” version that's under construction, won’t reach the 348 feet height of the final version but its diameter of 30 feet does match the #SpaceX design plans.
So much to look forward to at SpaceX South Texas this year. Can't wait to see Starship take off... ♡

C’est imminent ! SEIS devrait être déployé sur #Mars aujourd’hui. Une sorte de 2ème atterrissage pour le sismomètre qui va toucher le sol martien pour la 1ère fois. Un thread à déployer pour en savoir plus ! #SEISsurMars
Les photos martiennes fleurissent depuis l’atterrissage d’@NASAInSight - pour notre plus grand bonheur 🤩 #SEISsurMars
D'ailleurs pour faire votre marché, c'est ici mars.nasa.gov/insight/multim…
Outre leur aspect fascinant, ces images sont très utiles aux équipes qui s’en sont servis pour modéliser la topologie devant InSight et définir le site idéal #SEISsurMars

Oil drilling and climate change have decimated the Yamal Penninsula of Russia. The devastation they have wrought are the subject of the documentary of tonight's @NatGeoChannel #MARS episode.
/2 @Greenpeace Russia reports that every 18 months, over 4 million barrels of oil spew into the Arctic Ocean from Russian operations.
/3 Oil and gas prospecting in the continental sector of the Russian Arctic began as early as in the 1930s, prison labor was used.

J'ai bien envie de vous faire un joli thread des plus belles images satellite de #Mars.... ça vous tente?
On commence avec une formation dunaire assez incroyable: le champ de dunes de Hagal. Situé un peu en dessous du pôle nord martien, beaucoup y voient une page de morse... :)
Motifs polygonaux au fond d'un cratère... Cette structure est rendue bien visible grâce au givre qui coiffe les crêtes de cette étrange toile d'araignée. mars.nasa.gov/multimedia/mar…

@Der_Eisenhans I logged out at 24:30 & listened to Bach - Much better.

#Kavanaugh did not impress me: Comes across like a guy who wants to become Sheriff of a small town in #Texas, not #SCOTUS-Judge.
Losing his cool, stories about promoting women, prayers by junior & more, ALL irrelevant!
@Der_Eisenhans 2. #Ford does not always make sense (recalls only one beer 35 years ago, but not documents to the #WaPo a month ago) - Her timing also shows that she has a clear political motive: Prevent #Kavanaugh from becoming #SCOTUS-Judge.
She did not impress.
@Der_Eisenhans 3. But even if we accept that #Kavanaugh is innocent (which he remains in any case until found guilty by a court), his non-performance shows that he is not made out of the stuff a top judge & decision-maker is made off: Presented his case poorly (as a top judge!). TBC

THREAD - How about a bunch of blog posts on #Space and #Astronomy? Yes, I have more than you can imagine - especially since these are really just #physics topics. Hold on - because this is going to be a bit large.
2/ Here is an answer to my fav astronomy question EVER - "What would the phases of the moon look like if the moon was a cube?" wired.com/2015/09/moon-c…
3/ The great thing about the cube moon question is that it really tests if students understand phases of the moon rather than just recalling factual stuff. Here is my python model of a cube and spherical moon

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.

If there's life on Mars, I seriously doubt they want liberals bringing their radical homogeneous lifestyle to the planet. Heck, the Martians are probably trying to stay hidden to keep away from the nonsense #MarsWater #Mars #WalkAway
Stay off Mars with your crazy plantation mentality. #Democrats
Democrats would attempt to colonize the red planet with their crazy liberal ideas. No thanks!

The fascinating question is how many Trump tweets will it take to completely remove from US news coverage the discovery of a “lake of liquid water” on Mars?
Normally, the discovery of a lake of liquid water on a neighboring planet would be newsworthy because IT’S THE BLEEPIN’ DISCOVERY OF WATER ON #MARS!!!!! But, you know, it’s 2018 and Trump said something on Twitter and Michael Cohen this and that and all those porn stars so...
Hello 👋. THEY JUST DISCOVERED A BLEEPIN’ LAKE OF WATER ON #MARS! That is to say, ON BLEEPIN’ MARS THERE IS A BLEEPIN’ 12.5 MILE WIDE LAKE OF WATER. But, you know, what’s important is 👇🏼. Is it too soon to pack my bags? This planet has become unbearable and easily distracted.

🔴💦 Our #Mars Express satellite has detected liquid #water hidden under the planet’s south polar ice cap. Full story: esa.int/Our_Activities…
We know from orbiters, landers & rovers that #Mars had a wet past, with its vast dried out river channels & minerals that can only form in liquid #water, but it is not stable on the surface anymore, so scientists are looking underground…
Until now evidence from the #Mars Express radar experiment MARSIS, the first radar sounder ever to orbit another planet, remained inconclusive. A new operating mode generating higher-quality data was needed to seek out better evidence for buried #water...
