#Cuckold #Hotwife #Wannabe Here is the gist of a short practice #speech I made last night "Asking for a friend: communication skills for intimate conversations" The tricky bit was to use a humorous story to help with the message. @podofeleus @_ryangould99 @MilfVibez 🧵1/19
Let me tell you a story. My wife's best friend is Fiona and they go way back to their teenage years. Fiona was my wife's maid of honour. At one time, when they had not seen each other for a while, they had both agreed to meet a conveniently located museum with tea shop...2/19
Together they went from exhibit to exhibit, gallery to gallery, floor to floor for hour after hour and mile after mile. They filled their time reading all the small print of every exhibit and making polite conversation. 3/19

#OTD in 1852 Frederick Douglass recited "What to the Slave Is the Fourth of July?" before the Rochester Ladies' Anti-Slavery Society at Corinthian Hall. Douglass attacked slavery by highlighting how white Americans could celebrate freedom while enslaving others.
Douglass referenced the Bible, Declaration of Independence, and the Constitution to argue that as long as slavery existed that Independence Day would be a day of mourning for African Americans, especially the enslaved.
He proclaimed "...justice, liberty, prosperity and independence, bequeathed by your fathers, is shared by you, not by me. The sunlight that brought light and healing to you, has brought stripes and death to me. This Fourth July is yours, not mine. You may rejoice, I must mourn.”

Le dernier projet de l'Area 120, l'incubateur de #Google, s'appelle « #Aloud » et permet aux créateurs de #YouTube de doubler rapidement et facilement leurs vidéos 🎞️ en plusieurs langues.
Si le sous-titrage aide à combler la barrière de la langue pour augmenter la portée et
l'audience des vidéos des créateurs, il n'est pas la solution la plus adaptée sur les smartphones, en raison de la taille du format de l'écran qui occulte une gde partie de la #vidéo et demande de surcroit une attention plus soutenue
pour l'utilisateur,— sans compter que cela pose aussi des problèmes de visionnage et d'accessibilité pour les personnes souffrant de déficiences visuelles !
@Google s'attaque là, avec "Aloud"", à effacer ces points de frictions dans le but d'augmenter

Forensic Statement Analysis: #Sexualabuse in the language of the perpetrator is often seen by the use of doors, lights, water & coverings. Jonbenet Ramsay was a victim of childhood sexual abuse at the hands of her father.  Statement Analysis shows the connection to "lights"
within statements and sexual activity, and "doors" to childhood #sexualabuse  Repeated studies into these two elements shows a consistent  #linguistic connection.  When taken with the belief that it is rare to lie outright, we consider: Instead of saying, "I found
my daughter in the basement closet" or something else, John Ramsey went to 'narrative' form; that is, to lengthen out information, to explain, where no explanation is needed.  In doing so, he gave us links to sexual abuse without the need to even view

#Narcissism thread 🧵 15 (more) questions to ask yourself if you are questioning whether someone is a #narcissist
1. Do they devalue, diminish, demonise or harshly judge you or act as the righteous ‘authority’ figure with you regardless of their age, status or employment? 🚩
Are they #superior? For e.g. A non lawyer preaching to a lawyer about law. 2. Are they #defensive? Do they seem only interested in trying to prove that they are right & you are wrong, in a defensive mode? 🚩They are #competitive not co-operative. Co-operation is a must #healthy
3. Do they demand #attention from you? For e.g., insisting on having the conversation when it’s convenient for them only &/or use emotional #manipulation to ensure conversation happens on ‘their’ terms? They may not answer the question, go off topic, deflect, defensive, accuse 🚩

കെ.ആർ ഗൗരിയമ്മ എന്ന മുപ്പത്തിമൂന്നുകാരി 68 വർഷം മുൻപ് തിരുകൊച്ചി നിയമസഭയിൽ നടത്തിയ ഒരു പ്രസംഗമാണ്.

മന്തുള്ള വീട്ടിലെ പെണ്ണിന്റെ പേറെടുക്കാൻ പോകുന്ന മിഡ് വൈഫുമാർ ചെയ്യുന്നത് എന്താണെന്നു നിങ്ങൾക്കറിയുമോ, മിസ്റ്റർ ഗോവിന്ദ മേനോൻ (പനമ്പിള്ളി)? വേണ്ട കോളറയുള്ള വീട്ടിൽ?
അല്ലെങ്കിൽ വസൂരിയുള്ള വീട്ടിൽ? അവിടെയൊക്കെ പേറ് നടക്കുന്നുണ്ടെന്നെങ്കിലും നിങ്ങൾ അറിയുന്നുണ്ടോ മിസ്റ്റർ ഗോവിന്ദ മേനോൻ?

'ഒന്നും വേണ്ട.... നാട്ടിൽ കോളറയുണ്ട്, വസൂരിയുണ്ട്, പ്‌ളേഗുണ്ട് എന്നെങ്കിലും നിങ്ങൾ അറിയുന്നുണ്ടോ?
ഇതിനൊക്കെ ഇടയിലൂടെ ഇന്ന് ഓരോ വീട്ടിലും കയറിയിറങ്ങാൻ ധൈര്യം ഈ മിഡ് വൈഫുമാർക്കു മാത്രമേയുള്ളു. അവർ നിങ്ങൾ ഭരണക്കാരേപ്പോലെ അറച്ചു നിൽക്കില്ല. ഓരോ വീട്ടിലും പോകും. പക്ഷേ, അവർക്ക് ആഴ്ചയിൽ നാലു നാഴി അരി കൊടുക്കണം എന്നു പറഞ്ഞാൽ നിങ്ങൾ ഖജനാവിനുമേൽ കെട്ടിപ്പിടിച്ചു പൂണ്ടുകിടക്കും.

#Birmanie Ce qu'il faut savoir sur le coup d'Etat (thread) ⬇️
C'est toute la stratégie d'engagement européenne et américaine 🇪🇺🇺🇸 qui vole en éclats - très peu de sanctions malgré le massacre des Rohingyas.

C'est aussi le pari d'Aung San Suu Kyi et ses renoncements qui s'écroule.
Min Aung Hlaing, le chef de l'armée birmane, avait annoncé qu'il respecterait les résultats des élections.

2 mois plus tard, coup d'Etat. La valeur de la parole de l'armée... Image

Spoke to @Guardian podcast about growing up in post-War #France... that is post-#Algerian War of Independence, still v. much in living memory. The War’s legacy is perceived in all kinds of aspects of modern life, still blighted by the #colonial experience.
A point that is easily overlooked by foreign observers is that the 2nd most influential party in #France now was founded by far-right nationalists who wanted to keep #Algeria French. #LePen's FN -now called the Rassemblement National -is openly racist, islamophobic & antiSemitic.
In his '#Separatism' speech @EmmanuelMacron was sugar-coating #reactionary policies based on the premise that 5-6M French #Muslims can’t be trusted to manage their own affairs & required surveillance at all times.The emphasis was that Islam is a chronic #problem around the world

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

Top ten things NOT to say when giving a #speech: (these are some of my pet hates in Muslim conferences & talks that I've heard!!)

1. "I'm sorry I didn't really prepare for this speech."
(Why not? Were we that unimportant?)
2. "Sorry for waffling on."
(Just get on with it! We hadn't noticed until you pointed it out.)
3. "I won't tell you about it as I think I've bored you enough..."
(What? Just when you got to the interesting bit you won't tell us? Aargh!)

I received a very beautiful message this #Diwali and found it #TooGoodNotToShare ..
Most know that Diwali is a #FestivalofLights

#TheFiveLamps ..

While we all light our houses, do spend some time today to light a few lamps inside you and sit in silence with your eyes closed.
#Light the first lamp inside u and let it burn your #anger and or #jealousy that u may have for any one till date; see it melt away...

Light the second lamp and let it burn away unwanted #greed and desires... feel #happy and contented with what you have been blessed with.
#Light the third lamp and let it fade away all #insecurities that you may have in your mind related to anything or financials; just believe that #God has given u life and he will surely give you enough to survive.#
