Do you know the story of the rock that's behind Modiji ?
It's a world wonder & a miracle
It's defies gravitational force theory
250 ton rock boulder known as Krishna’s Butterbal is a massive 20 feet high & 5 meter wide rock stands on a
slippery slope of a hill on less than 4-ft base
It is called as Krishna’s butterball because butter is his favourite food and it is a myth that it falls from heaven
It is also known as ‘Vaanirai Kal’ in Tamil which means‘Stone of the Sky God’.

The position of the rock is so surprising that it looks like it will roll down the slope
But, it stands still firm & tourists can even take shade under it. Even it is unmoved by Tsunami, earthquakes or cyclones for over 1200yrs old
Isn’t strange that whatever be the

The father of the Reconstruction Act

This is Thaddeus Stevens (1792-1868). Mr. Stevens was instrumental in pushing the Reconstruction Acts through, over the president's veto, and long after peace had been declared after the Civil War. The result was the military overthrow...

...and annulment of our lawful states, along with the congressionally coerced passage of the infamous 14th Amendment. Contrary to the popular belief that it was primarily to give blacks civil rights, the 14th Amendment enslaved us all by replacing our nationalities(states)...

After the passing of any Articles of impeachment by the House of Representatives, the scenario that Mitch McConnell will refuse to allow a trial in the Senate is obviously very real. You can bank on it. 1/10
Mitch McConnell has made a despicable career of obstructionism & wrongly breaking Senate norms.

There is reason to proceed with awareness of McConnell's tactics & not rush impeachment. The longer we have, the more wrongdoing we can uncover & sway more public opinion.
2/10
If McConnell refuses a trial, the next step the House could take would be suing the Senate, which would end up at the SCOTUS.

We need to ensure the GOP bears the weight of refusing to hold lawlessness accountable. DT is already using impeachment to try & rally his dupes. 3/10

There's been a 10 point jump in polling in favor of Impeaching Trump since April SIX points in the last few days..this number will continue to rise & THIS is what will force the GOP to convict. Laser focus from Dem leadership cld do it! #SaturdayMotivation thehill.com/homenews/admin…
And as of this am, two GOP Governors have spoken out in favor of Impeaching Trump. Phil Scott (VT) & Charlie Baker (MASS) have both taken a stand. This is just the beginning & will make Repubs sit up & listen. #SaturdayMorning washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/…
And now a major CT newspaper, The Connecticut Post, speaks out in favor of Impeaching Trump.. LOT of CT Repubs read this paper. This is a part of what will cause the Repubs to call the GOP and TELL them to do it! #SaturdayMorning

Cambodia has a rich modern history of pulp art, #comics and graphic novels. Today in pulp I look at the Cambodian scene and at some of the artists who made - and continue to make - it happen! #SaturdayMotivation
Cambodian pulp art was initially influenced by the French comic strip style, and later by Indian movie posters and hindi comics. But it also maintains a strong folk-art tradition, melded with contemporary themes.
In the 1960s Cambodian artists were able to make a reasonable living illustrating both comics and book covers for the domestic market. Flower Of Love, Flame Of Suffering by Hak Chay Hok (Khmer Books) is a good example of the genre. The cover is by Hul Sophon.

Disruptive patterns are often to break up outlines and help objects blend in with their background. But in WWI a different type of disruptive pattern, loud and bold, became very popular for warships - Dazzle camoflague!

Let's take a look at it... #SaturdayMotivation
Pattern camoflague had been used before by the British Royal Navy to break up a ship's outline. But in 1917 artist Norman Wilkinson presented the Admiralty with a different idea - camoflague that confused the enemy rangefinders.
Dazzle - known in the US as Razzle Dazzle - would use high contrast colours in irregular patterns to make it difficult for enemy gunners to calculate a ship's range and bearing. This would (hopefully) lead to them taking up a poor firing position when they attacked.

Today in pulp I’m looking back at one of the many 1950s British imprints who rode the post-war publishing boom: Badger Books! #SaturdayMotivation
John Spencer and Co was founded in London in 1946 by Samuel Assael and specialised in publishing original fiction, normally written to order by freelance writers using house aliases. Like many pulp publishers they paid a flat rate for copy – ten shillings per 1,000 words.
Initially Spencer focussed on story magazines in digest and pocketbook form: Tales of Tomorrow, Out Of This World and Supernatural Stories focussed on fantasy and sci-fi short stories. But the digest market was beginning to decline as the post-war paperback market began to boom.

Today, the Proud Boys have organized an 'End Domestic Terrorism' rally in Portland in which it appears they're gearing up to replicate Charlottesville. PLEASE stay away from this, it's NOT what #TheResistance is about! #SaturdayThoughts usatoday.com/story/news/nat…
If you're looking for a way to meaningfully protest today, skip the Portland/Proud Boys mess and find a @MomsDemand Recess Rally against Gun Violence today instead. Here's the link for locations of that purposeful action. #SaturdayMotivation

Trump has (of course) weighed in on the Portland rally to be held by Alt-Right & Neo-Nazi groups, including Proud Boys. In fact, he appears to be concerned @ the Antifa group disrupting them, & has threatened to designate Antifa an "Organization of Terror' thedailybeast.com/trump-suggests…

A #SaturdayMotivation thread of our amazing Scottish foremothers who knew being divisive is the path to change.1st, Rose Klasko Kerrigan, sacked at 14 for speaking against WWI. She scandalized Glasgow’s only birth control clinic by seeking contraception before she had kids. /1 Rose Klasko Kerrigan
Next 1000s of Scottish suffragettes,criticised in their struggle for 'being divisive'. These women took militant action as well as raising petitions etc. My fave is Mary Maloney who followed Churchill round Dundee in 1908 ringing a bell because he wouldn't address the issue. /2 Scottish suffragettes raising a petition
Sophia Jex Blake who caused dreadful division in the medical community by seeking to become a doctor. Tut tut, Sophia. She was described by contemporary Elizabeth Blackwell as ‘a dangerous woman’ because of her steely determination to break down closed doors. She succeeded. /3 Sophia Jex Blake

~ श्रीमद भगवद गीता ~ ~ अध्याय २, श्लोक ६३ ~ क्रोध से न्याय के बादल उठते हैं, जिसके परिणामस्वरूप स्मृति का ह्रास होता है। जब स्मृति विह्वल हो जाती है, तो बुद्धि नष्ट हो जाती है; और जब बुद्धि नष्ट हो जाती है, तो एक बर्बाद हो जाता है

क्रोधाद्भवति सम्मोह: सम्मोहात्स्मृतिविभ्रम: | स्मृतिभ्रंशाद् बुद्धिनाशो बुद्धिनाशात्प्रणश्यति || 63
क्रोध निर्णय को लागू करता है, ठीक वैसे ही जैसे सुबह की धुंध सूरज की रोशनी पर एक धुंधली चादर बनाती है। क्रोध में, लोग गलती करते हैं जो बाद में पछताते हैं, क्योंकि बुद्धि भावनाओं की धुंधली हो जाती है। लोग कहते हैं, “वह मुझसे बीस साल बड़ा है।

“But as the old joke about a one-sentence summary of Russian history goes: ‘Then things got worse.’ Sanctions, counter-sanctions, and large-scale capital flight were finally beginning to catch up to those earning a living in rubles.”

Ah, memories. “I’ll never forget the day that the ruble, which had been trading at about 30 to the dollar when I began working in Moscow, plunged to over 80 to the dollar.”

And then the stores started running out of good European cheeses and couldn’t get any more...
Anyway, my thanks to @ProfessorIsIn for the opportunity to tell part of my story of how living in Moscow during the worst fall in relations between Russia and the West since the Cold War factored in to my ultimate alt-ac path.

Breaking: OH, look at this! Trump, apparently deciding that he's done enough #Grandstanding with Iran-for now- has announced that he's going to 'hold off' on the #ICEraids - for now. #SaturdayMotivation

2-"After the defending his plan to deport undocumented immigrants on Saturday, President Trump hours later tweeted that he “delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a
3-"solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border.” The tweet comes after immigration advocates and officials in some major U.S. cities condemned plans for Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids aimed at rounding up thousands of families facing deportation

This pc covers how ICE conduct raids & arrests. Something we should all be aware of, so that we can #ProtectEachOther -we need to stand together in this, do everything we can. Time to step up. This is going to be a hell of a summer. #SaturdayMotivation

2-Remember that you have the right not to answer the door & if you see ICE agents, avoid them. : "ICE agents can arrest people they discover to be in the U.S. illegally while searching for people on their target list. People who answer ICE agents’ questions about someone else
3-sometimes end up arrested themselves. In one case in Houston last year, a young father of five was arrested in the parking lot of his apartment building after ICE agents asked him about people who lived nearby, then demanded his identification and eventually detained him."

Eighty-eight Reasons Why the Rapture will be in 1988 by Edgar C. Whisenant, once a NASA engineer. His appropriation of Jewish High Holy Days for his predictions continues with e.g. John Hagee, who gave the benediction at the opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem

#EmptyThePews
My high school chemistry and AP biology teacher (I am not making up) engaged in similar ravings at the beginning of class (sometimes taking half the class time). He had a habit of predicting that "the Rapture will probably happen this fall around Yom Kippur." Every fall.
And thanks to the Christian Right and Trump going all in for each other, this pernicious nonsense is now driving our foreign policy in unprecedented ways. See my commentary in @ForeignPolicy:

For those asking @ the #wagthedog ref to Iran: in 1998 Clinton sent air strikes against Osama bin Laden training camps solely to distract from the Lewinsky scandal, this event eerily mimicked the plot of the movie, 'Wag The Dog' released the year before. #SaturdayMotivation
2-Here's a more specific explanation from Wiki:
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wag_the_D… "Wag the Dog was released one month before the outbreak of the Lewinsky scandal and the subsequent bombing of the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Sudan by the Clinton administration in August 1998, which
3-"prompted the media to draw comparisons between the film and reality.[3] The comparison was made again in December 1998 when the administration initiated a bombing campaign of Iraq just prior to Clinton's impeachment over the Lewinsky scandal" ~Wiki #SaturdayMotivation

Word is that we MIGHT see the SCOTUS decision on the Census question as early as Monday, which would mean that these Hofeller files-evidence that the GOP did attempt to fix this, won't affect the outcome. #SaturdayMotivation

2-"But after the Hofeller files came to light earlier this month, civil rights groups asked U.S. District Judge Jesse Furman in New York to consider sanctions against the government, and asked the Supreme Court to delay its ruling. In Maryland last week, plaintiffs’ lawyers asked
