It's a NEW MOON tonight.
In next 2 days Hindus across India will celebrate their #NewYear--
#Vaisakhi in North,
#Vishu in Kerala &
#Puthandu in TN.
A very auspicious time of the yr.🙏
In Kerala, day starts with VISHU KANNI-- auspicious items are laid out around Shri Krishna.
Auspicious items include everything YELLOW (be it fruits, Peetambar-Krishna, or new set of clothes), this so bcoz yellow represents PROSPERITY.
An imp item of KANNI is MIRROR which is kept in d center-- reminding us that:
"I alone can change my destiny".
This festival is based on SOLAR calendar though this yr d festival falls right next to a new moon. So it becomes an even more auspicious time to manifest our wishes.
Sun represents our soul, and moon our emotions.

And while you’re at it @piersmorgan @Peston @SamCoatesSky @maitlis & @krishgm can you explain to them that the virus won’t go away just because the “old & vulnerable” have been vaccinated. It will continue to spread through communities until ADEQUATE SAFETY measures are in place.
As we’re seeing now on “the frontline” WHOLE FAMILIES are infected. The combination of advice to #schools/#earlyyears & #Christmas/#NewYear created repeated family #SuperSpreaderEvents of monumental proportions.
There are young ppl who’re sick & in ITU. More cases = more v sick.
INDOOR workplaces are NOT #CovidSecure .
#Schools & #earlyyears settings are NOT #CovidSecure.
Too many ppl are travelling, to many work outside their home & are in education/childcare.
Look at the roads,the #Tube this morning.

I know this headline may resonate with some, and that is why I have decided to share.

After 6 years of anticipating a Ph.D., I got a fully-funded Ph.D. admission in 2019. Those 6 years of waiting looked like 'forever'!
#success #phd
Waiting for anything in life is not easy, especially when you have had many successes in a related area. Don't get me wrong, I was making progress in many other areas of my life, but this one thing I have always desired and wanted: to be a Ph.D. holder wasn't just forthcoming.
A bit of background, I finished BSc summa cum laude and top of my faculty and proceeded to pursue MSc in the UK on the prestigious commonwealth scholarship. I should also mention that my undergraduate degree was filled with so many prestigious scholarships and awards.

How a #vaccine works: when we get #covid19 we make #antibodies and #Tcells. A #vaccine introduces #antigens: heat-killed, parts of #virus, #mrna that makes virus #spike into our bodies to produce the antibody and Tcells WITHOUT infecting us with #coronavirus & making us sick. 1/ ImageImageImageImage
When a new disease comes along like #COVID19 #coronavirus our body does not have #antibodies or #Tcells to fight it off. First we recognize it (the #antigen) and START to BUILD our defense or army to fight it back. #vaccines #vaccine (from 2/ Image
The #vaccine helps us to build an army that is ready to fight the #coronavirus before it tries to infect us. The #vaccines are parts of the virus or #antigens that our body knows are foreign invaders (BUT can’t attack or make us sick). #mrna vaccines are different 3/ Image

हम वोह है जिन्हें पैदा होते ही उम्मीदों से लांघ दिया जाता है फिर थोड़ा बड़ा होते ही किताबों का बोझ डाल दिया जाता है बड़े लाध से रखा जाता है बाद प्यार किया जाता है कभी कभी ग़लतियो पर दांत भी दिया जाता है तोह कभी कभी शरारतों पर मार भी दिया जाता है।
और फिर हमारे रोने पर हमें चुप कर दिया जाता है और बड़े प्यार से समझा दिया जाता है की तुम लड़के हो ऐसे रोया थोड़ी जाता है।
तुम्हारे आँसू को तुम्हारी आंखों मे क़ैद कर दिया जाता है तुम्हारी भावनाओं को तुम्हारे दिमाग़ में बाँध दिया जाता हैं ।

This #NewYear we must get serious about climate change. A big obstacle: our brains.

Current risks are vastly different from our ancestors, but our brains are wired the same. Knowing the science behind decision-making helps us better talk about climate threats & spark action. 1/
I’ve dedicated my career to understanding what factors influence our perceptions of risk & shape behavioral outcomes, especially around climate action.

We clearly do not judge risks accurately. Let’s try this example. What is more likely to kill you:
Ppl often say shark attacks even though plane parts are 30x more likely to kill us. Attacks are more sensational/easier to recall.

Brains react in certain ways to risks around us, rapidly scanning environmental cues (e.g. snake’s stance) with subliminal and automated processing.

#NewYear’s resolution: support your local birds
A Cold Warrior’s advice on dealing with #Russia…
1. If you look at Banksy’s art with the same set of eyes that you would use on a Monet garden scene or an Edward Hopper painting, you won’t get it. ImageImage
2. If you see Banksy’s work as social commentary, however, then it makes perfect sense. Art is simply the medium Banksy uses to have a word with the world, as he did in the “crude oil” style painting he entitled Monkey Poison. Image

Thoughts for the coming year: “The Savior saw more in those humble fishermen whom He called to follow Him than they initially saw in themselves; He saw a vision of who they could become...” #OVincentHaleck
“He knew of their goodness and potential, and He acted to call them. They were not experienced at first, but as they followed, they saw His example, felt His teachings, and became His disciples.” #OVincentHaleck GC April 2020
Maybe you’ve felt to give up on something that would expand your soul, something you really suspected may be the Lord’s will for you, by thinking “Well, I knew I could never live up to that.” But God knows who you are. He knows all that you’re capable of doing and becoming.

Here’s some ideas for #NewYearsResolutions

Add on to the list below and benefit others!

#Forgive and Forget
Start 2021 with a fresh slate and #SpreadLove, not hate.

Allah says “He who is patient and forgives-that surely is a matter of strong determination” (Quran-42:22)

Make the intention to read congregational tahajjud on New Year’s day with your family.

Though the Mosque may be closed, you can still start the year off with prayer!

With Christmas and the New Year upon us, I thought it would be a fun idea to update Clement Clarke Moore's classic holiday poem: A Visit from St. Nicholas (AKA The Night Before Christmas).

So, my father and I wrote this:

A House Call from The Doctor
by Joshua Keller Katz and Randy Katz

T’was the plight before Christmas, in self-quarantine,
It was still, all except for the big TV screen,
Which the family watched while the newscast did stream,
And it held their attention: a working vaccine!

The kids were passed out, sleeping six feet apart,
The CARES Act helped fill up our Amazon cart,
In N ninety fives were the family all masked,
But no hugs goodnight, t’were ten months since we’d asked.

#Germany #Berlin #NewYear #Coronavirus

Even in times of Corona, a New Year's Eve party is planned at the Brandenburg Gate. The concept should be adapted to requirements, announced the organizer, Silvester in Berlin GmbH.
There will be an audience on site, but this year there are significantly fewer people than in other years - a number was not given. "The New Year's Eve celebration at the Brandenburg Gate is only open to Berliners and guest Berliners with valid, prior registration," it said.
When and where visitors can register, it should be announced. Hundreds of thousands have celebrated at the largest New Year's Eve party in Germany at the Brandenburg Gate in recent years.

I convey my warm greetings and good wishes to the people of our country on the joyous occasion of ‘#Vishu, #Puthandu, #Masadi, #Vaishkhadi and #BahagBihu’.

These festivals which celebrate the birth of a #NewYear, serve as harbingers of new beginnings and new hopes.
Associated with harvests, these festivals celebrate the bounty and beauty of nature. #NewYear

It is 2020!
At the beginning of each #newyear, we make #new plans, new #resolutions, new #goals , want new #directions, forge new #paths and much more. This is wonderful. It sounds like we all want #CLARITY in our hearts about what to do and how to get it done. @PD_PneumaFaith
As I was thinking about this over the last couple of weeks, the scripture for #PneumaFaith kept coming to my mind. "The unfolding of your word gives light; it gives understanding to the simple." (Psalms 119:130 NIV). @PD_PneumaFaith
The word #UNFOLDING is used in many translations of this verse (#entrance, #teaching, #revelation, #explanation #disclosure #opening #declaration) Whatever translation we read, it implies the #reading or #meditation of the #word brings #light, #illumination ...

This #NewYear2020 resolve to de-colonize.

There is nothing “secular” about #Welcome2020. This Calendar is Pope Gregory’s (though badly copied from India), the year and date chosen around the mythical “Jesus.”

It erases our own history & traditions.…
No, not the planet. The Christian world uses Christian calendar. The Islamic world uses Islamic Calendar. China’s biggest celebration is the Chinese New Year per its own Calendar. But India uses?

How is New Year related to “Jesus”? When Church invented Jesus’s birthday as December 25, they picked “New Year” to mark Jesus’s circumcision.

So, to be accurate #NewYear is a celebration of cut-foreskin day…

The #TimesSquare ball that's lowered each #NewYear is made of 2688 Waterford Crystal triangles. Crystal is made of minerals such as #silica, #potash and lead. It's frame is made of aluminum. There have been 7 different balls since 1907. The 1st was made of #iron and wood.
Dropping a ball to mark time started in 1833 in #Greenwich, #England, at the #RoyalObservatory. A ball was lowered each day at 1 pm so nearby ships could set their chronometers (a navigational instrument).

#nspoli #novascotia #ns Image
About 150 balls were used around the world after the success at #Greenwich, but few still work. #CitadelHill’s noon cannon served a similar purpose – it kept the military running on time and allowed ships to set their chronometers.
