How the legend #Rakeshjhunjhunwala started his journey. The #Story in his own words⤵️. The journey from 20 lacs to 2.5 crores. #RIP #Omshanti #Thread 🧵#Investing #Stockmarket #Stocks. 1/10
My father was also interested in #stocks. When I was a young child, he and his friends would drink in the evening & discuss about the #Stockmarket. I would listen to them and one day I asked him why do these prices fluctuate. (2/10)
He told me to check if there is a news item on Gwalior Rayon in the newspaper, and if there was Gwalior Rayon’s price would fluctuate the next day.

I found it very interesting & I got fascinated by #stocks, I self-taught myself. 3/10

Now that the #MRoots2022 #genealogy #familyhistory #history #storytelling #conference is behind us, I wanted to share some lessons and thoughts I had as chair for this new type of learning experience. 🧵
The future of #genealogy #familyhistory #education is happening NOW for things you want to see and have mainstream in 3-5+ years. There’s no room for waiting. There’s no room for wishful thinking of before 2020. It’s embrace change. Be the change maker. Or fold.
Stop stereotyping people into boxes of how you expect they’ll respond. Age. Experience. Heritage. Race. Dive in and discover together. Invest in new learning styles. Invest in rising/emerging professionals. Push #genealogy learning spaces to be learner inclusive.

A thread (Part 2)
I even learn to lower my eyes and avoid seeing inappropriate parts of a person's body. The reason is love. Love is not rude (1 Cor. 13:5).

I love the Indonesian translation of that Verse, it is similar to not doing inappropriate things. I am a Christian and I need to love and respect others.
I did all of that not because I want to boast or act like "You're all holier than thou"... No.
It is because I know my flesh is. Once I give it a little chance, what had been dead will suddenly arise.

A thread (Part 1)

I have been praying this verse for months. To turn my eyes from looking at worthless things and to give me life in His ways.

#Heart ImageImage
Bible, the Words of God has made me love to read, literally everything. Reading has become one of my fave habits and my hobbies. Besides the Bible, the man I love also has shared in it.
I got intrigued because it is one of his particular hobbies (Yes, he is still that same person. If you are somehow curious about who he is, just take time to scroll down my Twitter account. You'll find out).

Ou comment contribuer à la déforestation illégale de l’Amazonie en mangeant un steak brésilien. #thread #letsdoitfair #story
Juillet 2019, Amazonie brésilienne. En compagnie de 3 autres camions, Alessandro A. transporte du bétail dans un semi-remorque de la ferme ‘Estrela do Aripuanã’ vers une seconde exploitation située à plus de 300 kilomètres.
Quelles sont les raisons d’une telle expédition ? Pourquoi les 250 bovins ne sont-ils pas directement envoyés à l’abattoir ?

Sitting in the cramped high school library I sat a table chicken scratching a script outline for a Western style video game.

Hampsterdance plays endlessly on loop as a bunch of freshman giggle uncontrollably at the classic meme.
The principle big bellies up to my desk and asks me to explain what I was doing.

I tell him, “I’ve got this cool idea for a video game. These rough sketches are storyboarding the major plot points… I think there’s room for deeper storytelling in video games.”

A bedtime #story for little ones, @cherrycollins @BART_SOMSEN and @SarahBuisseSoms If your ducks can't go on vacation soon, amuse them by replicating scenes from Duck on Holiday in your garden or local park. Here's your script (extra cast required/posed by model)
create your own 'rock' pool. A piece of polythene would suffice
always ensure safety precautions are in place, especially if your duck is very young and yet to develop its water-proof feathers

Author Scott Phillips is one funny m*thrf^c*r. Check out these scenes from THE ICE HARVEST. Afterwards, I’ll talk about the story structure. I like to break down great crime novels to see what I can learn from them. LFGOOO. #story #plot Image
First, a little warning - this book is profane. You’ll be spending a snowy Christmas Eve with criminals, strippers, perverts and miscreants. A journey so unholy it's hilarious. #books #funny

A Zen Story: Being in Awe

Bassui told the story of a certain patriarch who took one meal a day, never lay down, spent the day in worshipful practice, and lived a life free of impurity or desire. His disciples considered him to surely have attained the Way.
But an older patriarch startled the disciples by saying that the teacher's practice was merely "the foundations of delusion."
The disciples challenged the old man. "What deeds allow you to slander our teacher?" they demanded to know.
The old patriarch replied thusly: "I neither follow the Way nor depart from it. I neither worship the Buddha nor have contempt for him. I neither sit long hours in meditation nor sit idle. I neither eat just one meal a day nor am I greedy for more.

#India is home to many storytelling #traditions. Each artform narrates a beautiful #story.

In this #series, we bring to you the different modes of #storytelling.

The first in the series is #Kolam.
In this post, #Kolam is drawn by expert Hema Kannan @lotus_shakti. She very beautifully has drawn a cradle & Krishna's little feet popping out of it. This elaborate Kolam aesthetically narrates the story of Janmashtami. This is the power of Kolam & the stories it carries with it.
#Kolam #art is drawn using rice flour, as per age-old conventions, on any flat surface using bare fingers. The #pattern begins with a #series of #dots that are interconnected with each other through #geometric #lines & #curves.

I can say I lived in a great #rainforest because Sao Paulo & most of the coast of Brazil are in the Atlantic Forest 🌴🌺🐍. It is one of the 34 world’s #hotspots of #biodiversity, with more than 1500 plant species and 90% of original area loss. #VoiceIWS @IWS_Network Source: https://www.e-educa...

But I'll forget it soon. If you don't like it, forget it immediately. Because I know it's a game.
If you show a significant reaction here, it will be inconvenient.
Those people are always watching. They've has been watching me since I was born.
So it's no use hiding it.
Safety? There is no such concept in the first place.
However, because it's a game that uses such words, everyone buys & hangs various things.
I'm fine.
You can't be serious because it's a game.
The person who made this game is telling me to finish it.
They're tired of it because the same thing is repeated forever.

Yoko opened her eyes many times and received a message from her.

For Yoko, men are people in trouble. The man is a romanticist. The man is lonely.

A Zen Story: Worse than a Clown

There was a young monk in China who was a very serious practitioner of the Dharma.
Once, this monk came across something he did not understand, so he went to ask the master. When the master heard the question, he kept laughing.
The master then stood up and walked away, still laughing. The young monk was very disturbed by the master's reaction. For the next 3 days, he could not eat, sleep nor think properly. At the end of 3 days, he went back to the master and told the master how disturbed he had felt.
When the master heard this, he said, "Monk, do u know what your problem is? Your problem is that YOU ARE WORSE THAN A CLOWN!"
The monk was shocked to hear that, "Venerable Sir, how can you say such a thing?! How can I be worse than a clown?"

A Zen Story: Creating Ripples

"The boat is coming to take me home because I have failed in my studies here at the monastery," said the boy to his teacher. "What can I say to my family?"
"Say that you did your best and that is as much as anyone can do," answered the teacher.
"But I wanted to be a famous monk and teach others."
"You can."
"How?" asked the sad boy.
"Live from your heart. I will show you. Do you see that boat making its way across the lake with the sun setting behind it?"
"Do you see its wake spreading across the lake? See how the boat looks like the apex of a golden triangle as the wake fans out from its bow."
"Sort of."

"Squint," said the teacher. "That boat is you as you leave the monastery. The lake is your life.

A Zen Story: Beyond Outstanding

The Prince of Wu took a boat to Monkey Mountain. As soon as the monkey's saw him they all fled in panic and hid in the treetops. One monkey, however, remained, completely unconcerned, swinging from branch to branch---an extraordinary display!
The Prince shot an arrow at the monkey, but the monkey dexterously caught the arrow in mid-flight. At this the Prince ordered his attendants to make a concerted attack. In an instant the monkey was shot full of arrows and fell dead.
Then the King turned to his companion Yen Pu'i: "You see what happened?" he said. "This animal advertised his cleverness. He trusted in his own skill. He thought no one could touch him. Remember that! Do not rely on distinction and talent when you deal with men!"
