Written by my mother:

From my heart with sadness....

My terrifying experience at all candidates forum in Vancouver-Granville, last night October 5, 2019!

It was not Antifa, although in my view the tactics were the same, it was two NDP members who attacked me...
inside and outside of the facility.

To introduce myself: I am a proud Canadian, a senior, a Polish immigrant, a hard working women, a mother, a grandmother who immigrated to Canada 38 years ago, running away from socialist - communist Poland just few months before Martial Law...
was declared there, in December 1981.

My family barely survived German Nazi, my cousins were murdered in concentration camps, my mother (who is now 95 yrs old) was beaten almost to dead by German Nazis, by the grace of God she survived it my father survived the Nazi war...

Belated tribute to Subedar Joginder Singh, Param Veer Chakra awardee whose Jayanti was yesterday , known for his heroics during the Battle of Bumla Pass in the 1962 War, an inspiring tale of courage under fire.
While the Battle of Rezang La during the '62 War and Shaitan Singh's bravery during that is well known, equally heroic is the feat of Subedar Joginder Singh, who took down 50 Chinese, at Bum La pass before being captured by them.
Much like Rezang La, Bumla Pass was another tale of courage under fire, where a vastly outnumbered Sikh Regiment, held on till the end against a much larger Chinese army, and Joginder Singh's defiance is the stuff heroism is made of.

Against Xenophobia but Lets educate @TimesLIVE quick!!!

Africa has 54 sovereign states, only three countries hosted South Africans for an agreed period of time, & it was all based on preconditions & restrictions. Angola, Tanzania and Zambia were countries that hosted SAcans
With a clear understanding dat afta sumtym, dey will go back to South Africa. Mozambique, Lesotho, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Swaziland were transit countries
Ethiopia, Egypt and Algeria offered training camps for a selective period,
soon after, South Africans had to return back to the 3 host countries Very few countries were in solidarity support, but never in financial support. Countries like Kenya and DRC used
to deport any South African found in their country back to South Africa. .

Lt. Col Ardeshir Tarapore, the only other PVC recipient in the 1965 War, died on this date in action, during the Battle of Chawinda, another intense tank battle after Asal Uttar. Another hero who died in the line of fire.
Havaldar Abdul Hamid and Lt. Col Ardeshir Tarapore, the "Tank Busters" of the 1965 War. And the only PVC Recipients too for that war. While much is known about Hamid and Asal Uttar, not much is known of Tarapore and his heroics in Phillora-Chawinda.
One of Ardeshir's ancestors Ratanji Ba, served in the army of Shivaji Maharaj, and as an acknowledgement of his bravery and loyalty, he was gifted a 100 villages by the Chattrapati. One of them was Tarapore, which became the family name too. His heroics had a long legacy.

Continuing my series on the Indo-Pak war of 1965, today I take a look at the aerial warfare in the conflict. This was the war in which IAF came into it's own, and evolved into one of the finest fighting units ever.
As I had mentioned earlier, post WWII, the highest number of Tank battles was fought in this conflict. I think only other equivalent could be the Arab-Israel wars and 1990 Gulf War. Also this war was when Pakistan started covert operations on a large scale.
In the 1948 War, the Indian Air Force was primarily involved in logistics and transport, but during the 1965 War, they played a major role in the combat, giving support to ground forces, and dog fights.

Probably. They're so bad at it it's hard to tell though tbh

It's weird, because @ljmontello's affidavit mentions the 2004 (Paragraph 6), 2007 (Paragraphs 7-8), and 2009 (Paragraph 9) conventions

She never claimed to be at Tekko 2010. Why are you lying?

Today is also Jayanti of Pingali Venkayya, the designer of our national flag. While he is known as a freedom fighter, not so well known is the fact that he was an equally good geologist and agriculturist too.
Pingali Venkayya was born on August 2, 1876 in a village near Machilipatnam. His father Hanumantha Rayudu was the village Karanam of Yarlaggada , while his grandfather Adivi Venkatachalam was the Tahsildar of Challapalli Samsthanam
Venkayya studied in Hindu High school, of Machilipatnam, and later in Colombo. At the age of just 19 he joined the Army and took part in the Boer War. On his return he worked as plague inspector for some time in Madras and later Bellary.

("Ex parte" is Latin for "from." An ex parte communication is one coming from only one party, not providing any notice to the other party. Basically the opposite of a letter copied to opposing counsel, filed publicly, and served via the electronic filing system.)
It is quite literally impossible to overstate how fantastically dumb Ty Beard's "ex parte" characterization is

To any minimally competent attorney, it screams "this guy doesn't know what he's doing"

The motion is weak and the basis is LOLable, but my suspicion is that the judge will grant it (though likely for less than 3 weeks)

Defendants will argue the burden is on Plaintiff to show good cause (the motion doesn't do that), plus ongoing harassment

Positive for the Defendants. He gives their attorneys lots of usable material

A good rule of thumb as y'all see an assortment of "bUt ThEy LiEd UnDeR oAtH" tweets from conVics is that they're typically projecting – accusing others of the things they themselves or R.Broly have done

Consider these excerpt from the R.Broly deposition...

Wishing a Happy 86th birthday to the Metro Man E.Sreedharan, the man behind two of the greatest engineering projects in modern India- Konkan Railway and Delhi Metro, pulled off under the most challenging circumstances.
While Sreedharan is widely acclaimed for the Delhi Metro, for me the Konkan Railway was a far bigger achievement. One of the most challenging project, considering the terrain involved, to me wud be Sreedharan's greatest achievement.
And to think that Sreedharan was actually bought out of retirement for Konkan Railway, his tenure had come to an end in June 1990. It was the then Railway Minister George Fernandes who appointed him as CMD of Konkan Railways, and the rest as they say is history.

Continuing my series on Mewar-Land of the Ranas, I take a look at Rana Sangha, grandson of Rana Kumbha, grandfather of Rana Pratap, one of the great Ranas, a man who defeated the Sultans in various battles before he was done in by treachery.
Kumbha was killed by his own son Udai Singh I, who however proved to be a worthless ruler. Under Udai Singh I, Mewar lost both Abu and Ajmer, and soon there was a clash for the throne between Udai Singh and Raimal, his brother.
Raimal defeated Udai Singh I in a series of battles at Jawar, Darimpur and Pangarh, forcing him to flee. Udai Singh I tried to seek the help of the Delhi Sultanate, but was struck down by lightning and died.

Today is the Punya Thithi of Alluri Sitarama Raju, the great revolutionary hero who led an uprising against the British in the tribal regions of Andhra Pradesh, and was shot dead by them on this date in 1924. Another great hero who did not get his due.
One of the more ignored aspects of the Indian freedom struggle has been the various tribal revolts that broke out against the British rule. Tribals were prohibited from cutting trees for firewood, their traditional Podu cultivation was banned, and they were often exploited
Many protests broke out in the tribal areas of Eastern Indian, notably Jharkhand, Chattisgarh, Western Odisha, Bengal, one of the more famous one was that of Birsa Munda in Jharkhand.
