In Human culture the analogy between day, year and life is very precise: each one has four seasons (that are further divided into three periods each).

Let's consider the first periods:
• Primanɔtte (Earlynight) is like Priminvɛrno (Earlywinter) and when you are a bambino (a person from 0 to 7 years old).
• Meʒʒanɔtte (Midnight) is like Meʒʒinvɛrno (Midwinter) and when you are a citto (a person from 7 to 14 years old).
• Tardanɔtte (Latenight) is like Tardinvɛrno (Latewinter) and when you are a ragazzo (a person from 14 to 21 years old).

#WordOfTheDay #lithotomy in Spanish #litotomía or as I prefer to call it “the most absurd position to give birth in”
Lithotomy is referred to this position. And although now I’m every picture and movie is generally understood as a position of birth. It is relatively modern and now questioned by people like me. But hey there is a man in the picture and not a birthing woman.
Lithotomy from Greek for "lithos" (stone) and "tomos" (cut), is a surgical method for removal of calculi, stones formed inside certain organs, such as the urinary tract (kidney stones), bladder (bladder stones), and gallbladder (gallstones)

Recently it was announced that, after decades of neglect, the Charleroi Metro is getting its 5th line built and trams renovated.

A breeze of fresh air for a "metro" that seems frozen in the 80s.

Let me show you some pics of Belgium's most bizarre public transport network 🚋🚇🇧🇪
[I took these pics on a cold winter day of early 2021. Perhaps some things have changed. I doubt so.]
To give a little bit of context, the Charleroi Metro, as expected on the country of surrealism 🇧🇪 is obviously not a Metro

It's clearly a light rail transit

Today's network is made up of 3 branches that come out of a central loop. One of the branches loops both ways, so 2 lines

A Pattern for Prayer || Effective Prayer || James 5:15 || Morning Devotional || July 3, 2021
Happy Saturday, my beloved family! In today’s devotional, we are encouraged to pray in faith for anyone who is sick among us. The word of God says that this specific prayer will bring healing to the sick & they will rise to new life. How amazing is that?? 🤯
We are also assured that if the sick person had committed any sins, that they would indeed be forgiven. As you enter your weekend, keep praying & keep trusting in God’s relentless love for us! 🙏🏾❤️

શબવાહિની ગંગા
એક અવાજે મડદા બોલ્યાં 'સબ કુછ ચંગા-ચંગા'
રાજ, તમારા રામરાજ્યમાં શબવાહિની ગંગા.
રાજ, તમારા મસાણ ખૂટયા, ખૂટયા લક્કડભારા,
રાજ, અમારા ડાઘૂ ખૂટયા, ખૂટયા રોવણહારા,
ઘરેઘરે જઈ જમડાંટોળી કરતી નાચ કઢંગા
રાજ, તમારા રામરાજ્યમાં શબવાહિની ગંગા.
રાજ, તમારી ધગધગ ધૂણતી ચીમની પોરો માંગે,
રાજ, અમારી ચૂડલી ફૂટે, ધડધડ છાતી ભાંગે
બળતું જોઈ ફીડલ વગાડે 'વાહ રે બિલ્લા-રંગા'!
રાજ, તમારા રામરાજ્યમાં શબવાહિની ગંગા.
રાજ, તમારા દિવ્ય વસ્ત્ર ને દિવ્ય તમારી જ્યોતિ
રાજ, તમોને અસલી રૂપે આખી નગરી જોતી
હોય મરદ તે આવી બોલો 'રાજા મેરા નંગા'
રાજ, તમારા રામરાજ્યમાં શબવાહિની ગંગા.

#VeteransDay Was Originally #ArmisticeDay

#ArmisticeDay began in 1918 to celebrate The Day World Leaders Came Together To End #WWI- The 'War To End All Wars'- And The Idea Of Ending All #War…
"Over one hundred years ago the world celebrated #peace as a universal principle. #WWI had just ended and nations mourning their dead collectively called for an end to all #wars#ArmisticeDay was born and was designated as “a day to be dedicated to the cause...
... of world #peace and to be thereafter celebrated." After #WorldWarII, the U.S. Congress decided to rebrand #November11 as #VeteransDay. Honoring the warrior quickly morphed into honoring the #military and glorifying #war. #ArmisticeDay was flipped from a day for #peace into...

This is my semi-livetweet thread of the March 10 primary contests. #GoJoeGo #WeKnowJoe #BlueTsunami
First off, Michigan exit polls already show Biden crushing it, so it might be a really early night, TBH 😉
Polls close in a few minutes in MS, MO, ND, and most of MI. Let's see how many of those states are called by the news networks immediately at 8:00 pm.
