What the....who just, how did....#Tigers win! Tigers knock Singer out early, take 7-0 lead to 8th, lose lead (!), then walk it off in the bottom of the 9th on Grossman single, 8-7....1/
The first seven innings of this game were awesome: Boyd made first start since 1 inn. start on 4/29 - and he was terrific; 6IP 4H 0R 2BB/5K - all singles, little hard contact, lowered ERA to 1.94, has now allowed just 1HR in 42IP....2/
....#Tigers offense continues to show signs of improvement - 20 more BR tonight, good situational hitting, and sustained rallies. Tigers scored 4R in 4th - went 1st-3rd on three consecutive singles, Grossman brought in 4th run on sac fly on 9th pitch of AB v. Singer...3/

#1 Magic moments 2020: The January arrival of 17 #lions & #tigers #rescued from #circuses in Guatemala at the #ADIWildlifeSanctuary in South Africa, marked more than just a wonderful new life for those animals. It meant animal circuses had been eliminated in another country. ImageImageImageImage
During #ADI’s grueling 18-month operation to enforce the ban, we faced threats, mobs & abuse & finally had to quickly evacuate & relocate the temporary rescue center.
The flight was beset with difficulties – countries refusing landing permits, extra costs, & special security measures at the temporary rescue center, gave us a very long haul with stops in Mexico, Belgium & aircraft change in Qatar for the final flight to Johannesburg.

Many tiger reserves and protected areas in India are analogous to small islands in a vast sea of ecologically unsustainable land uses of varying degrees, the goverment report said. #GlobalTigerDay

Movement of #tigers from the Nagarahole-Mudumalai-Wayanad corridor to sink habitats of Kudremukh-Bhadra is hampered by NH- (234, 48) and State Highways (8, 27, 37, 85, 88, 89, 91, 114) , the report said about the corridor in the rich Western Ghats.

One of the greatest natural history moment witnessed at the Ranthambore Tiger reserve. As we started our full day safari and reached the Zone 6 around 10.30 we got to see the mating pair of T 57 and T 39, as we were photographing
them we saw a mystery tiger pop out of the bush and cross over the road and he crouched down hearing the roar of T57. After a while we saw the unknown male come out of the bushes and slowly mark his area and cut across to the place

अंतरराष्ट्रीय बाघ दिवस के अवसर पर, भारत के इस शानदार राष्ट्रीय पशु के संरक्षण के लिए हर संभव प्रयास करने का आह्वाहन करता हूं।
यह हर्ष का विषय है कि विश्व भर में कुल बाघों में से करीब 70% भारत में पाए जाते हैं। #IndiasTigerSuccess Image
यह भी संतोष का विषय है कि प्रोजेक्ट टाइगर के अंतर्गत देश में बाघों की संख्या में उत्तरोत्तर वृद्धि हो रही है, देश में बाघों की संख्या, नियत 2022 से पहले ही दुगुनी हो गई है। सरकार के प्रयास अभिनंदनीय हैं। #IndiasTigerSuccess
फिर भी विगत कुछ दशकों में इनके प्राकृतिक आवास का क्षेत्र कम होता गया है, जगलों की कटाई, शिकार की कमी और अवैध शिकार के कारण बाघों पर अभी भी खतरा बना हुआ है।
अतः इनके संरक्षण के प्रयास लगातार जारी रखने चाहिए। इस दिशा में सरकार द्वारा उठाए कदमों को जन समर्थन दिया जाना चाहिए। #Tigers

This thread clarifies the situation re #ElephantDeathCase #Kerala. Also, let's use this opportunity to reflect on the situation of #wildlife in #India today
1. People did not "feed" the elephant with cracker stuffed pineapple.
2. The elephant ate the bait laid to kill wild boars.
3. 1000s of wild boars are killed every year in a similar fashion.
4. Some don't die immediately, they suffer for a few days without a face or mouth to eat.
5. This kind of baiting needs to stop.
6. Wild boar lives matter too.
7. End #cruelty towards all #animals #nonhumans.
8. It didn't happen in Malappuram.
9. Why does religion need to come into the picture?
10. #BlackLivesMatter, but please also stand up for those marginalised in #India too (#DalitLivesMatter #MinorityLivesMatter).
11. Try to understand the problem & suggest a solution #Nonhumans

Sir, it was in Palakkad not Mallapuram.
And why the Indian culture remarks? #Kerala #keralaelephant
Let's not forget Mr Javadekar had defended the culling of animals like nilgai, wild boar. Supported by farmers-
Javadekar, who held the post of Minister for Environment defended animal culling, insisting it is done on the request of states to protect crops
oneindia.com/india/nilgai-m…
End of the day we have a huge problem between farmers and animals that destroy their crop. Needs a solution so farmers don't resort to firecrackers & tragic #elephant deaths like in Kerala. Mr Javadekar had supported culling of nilgai etc because of this

Version 3 of the #CFBPlayoff rankings were released last night. What you expected? If youve followed along since early Oct you know the process. You werent surprised. For the rest of you, lets take a look & compare to what was projected using the same process used for 5 yrs.
First off, why does the committee use this process? Think about it. 14 busy guys make up this committee. They have roughly 60 hrs from when the last game ends on Sat to when they need to have this Top 25 created on Tues. If they evaluate only 30 teams to get that 25, how much
time is adequate to evaulate? 1 hr? Thats 30 hrs of evaluation. Half the time is gone & no one has slept. The process of getting a consensus out of 14 people hasnt even started. Thats why this process is kept so simple, & its why they have a defined predictable process.

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.

Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
