Tidbits #32

Funny. In the Western developed States, with this lockdown, the argument is: Do we have a moral imperative to continue the financial support of your hairdresser , your dog walker, babysitter, the kid’s piano teacher, your yoga instructor?

Rewilding? The term was popularized in the late 1990s by two American biologists (pdf), who argued that conservation shouldn’t mean just conserving an area of land but bringing back predators that kept the ecosystem functioning in its natural state.

America’s banking giants are fortifying themselves for a potential tsunami of bad loans.
The five biggest US lenders have stashed away $24 billion of loan-loss provisions as of the first quarter, almost five times as much as in the previous period, according to FactSet data.

In States that established social safety net for employment and health.. allowed individualism to reign. But in places without those means, collectivism is often the order of the day.

Lockdown reminded us that “When a poor person fall, we fall together. Survival is a collective exercise”

Should I feel much better? The coronavirus that causes Covid-19 has already been identified, genetically sequenced, and given a name (SARS-CoV-2). And what the next in line SARS-CoV-3 will spread?

An estimated 280,000 US health care workers don’t have papers and they still have to worry about being deported.

Palestinian prisoners in Israel are being subjected to a harsher version of Auschwitz: Let them all die of Covid-19. Let them take all their time to die in their confinement.

Guess why. There were no US school shootings in March. It was the first March without one since 2002.

France King Charles 9 in the 16th century, eldest son of Catherine of Medici, moved the new year from April 1st to January 1st and labeled April 1st, April Fool.

April 1st was the new year in all Middle-East since antiquity. March was the month for celebration to culminate on the first of April.

A new breathing aid device would deliver oxygen to the lungs while cutting the need for ventilators, helping keep patients out of intensive care.

“The combination of uncertainty and danger…feeds an intense desire for certainty, better known to psychologists as the need for cognitive closure,” writes psychologist Arie Kruglanski in The Conversation. “It is the time when authoritative, confident direction is much preferred over flexible, laissez-faire guidance. We need to be told what to do, plain and simple.”

The world’s biggest manufacturer of condoms said its stockpile will last just two more months.

Remember: On this date April 17, Israel bombed a UN compound in Qana (Lebanon) killing 106 civilians who thought they were fleeing to “security”. The US blocked all judicial attempts in their courts for reparation (I was in the US and witnessed a few lawyers valiantly lodging complaints in the names of victims, at no avail)

The purpose of Share on social platforms is to disseminate what opinions and articles match your world view. Use it instead of pressing Like.

India’s idle huge rail network trains with carriages having plenty of space could be used for Covid-19 patients. 

And this fat and flatulent Winston Churchill visits the battle field of Zama near Carthage. He wanted to pay his respect to the victory of the Romans in 1942, just as the allies recaptured north Africa. This ultimate of racist claimed that this battle was the beginning of the barbarian western civilization. And culture and civilization was at an end and mankind wasted 2,500 years of sustained growth and progress

Carthage was New York and Shagai combined.
It was the financial and economic power of the Mediterranean Basin
It was the industrial capital of the ancient world.
It had 700,000, most of them were foreign workers and artisan of about 500,000, sort of Dubai
Its building were of 8 floors, nothing comparables then
It could produce in record time scores of ships, for commerce and navy
It had ports almost in every known country where it stored its raw materials and traded with the autochtones.
Tunisia produced as much wheat as Egypt and had the best agricultural experts.

On April 17, French mandated troops over Syria vacated the land forcefully. Since then, French institutions were trained to hate the valiant Syrian people. France had handed to Turkey Syrian lands the size of current Syria.

Africa’s total external debt is $700 billion and its debt service this year alone is $44 billion, so the fear is some of the world’s most under-resourced health systems would suffer with debt repayments being prioritized in the middle of a global pandemic. The World Bank and IMF were early to call for some form of debt relief, perhaps forbearance. China alone loaned $140 bn

It is dawning on me this hypothesis: the air in airplanes and sleeping quarters in ships contributed largely in spreading the Covid-19

Timeline of global deaths: January 1st to April Fool.

Covid-19 has overshadowed the reality of what kinds of deaths people are succumbing to.

This table does Not cover all the curable diseases because of lack of medical treatment and available health care valid system

More importantly:

Those dying out of famine, by the millions, particularly in Yemen, Sudan (North and South), the Congo and those States ravaged by continuous civil wars

Those dying from drinking foul water: dysentery, Typhoid fever, Yellow fever…

All those 30 million refugees on the road, dropping like flies in inhospitable lands.

Notes and comments on FB and Twitter. Part 41

Note: Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Quand vous écoutez une musique sans tréve et en écrivant, une sorte d’affinité s’insert dans l’ écriture

Toute musique est un miracle quand elle nous done l’ illusion que la vie a un sens.

You have fat citizen slaves subsidized by the “Arab” absolute monarchs, and the skinny slaves imported from Pakistan, Bangladesh…who eat the left-over of their masters, and are confined in restricted areas, out of sight of the people…

If you block the receptors of growth hormones, you don’t get cancer, diabetics, or Alzheimer, even if you get overweight. And you live much longer.

Midget mice live twice longer than normal size mice and midget people (Laron)  don’t suffer cancer, diabetics, or Alzheimer. Growth hormones are mainly protein from meat, but if the receptors for those hormones are blocked then there is no growth.

The serum from midget mammals have cells with double protection from cancer attacks: the cell first repulse, and if infected it destroy itself instead of disseminating the cancerous cells.  

USA bombed on purpose Iraqi civilians in Mosul. It wants to slow down the re-conquest of Mosul so that the Iraqi 7ashd sha3bi don’t push forward to Syrian borders and jeopardize the plan of the US to control North-East Syria and prevent the land linkage of Iran toward Syria

If you buy things you don’t need, expect to sell what you badly need

Don’t save what is left after spending. Spend what is left after saving

Honesty is an expensive behavior. Not to expect it from cheap people

Faute d’ avoir une voix chantante, il faut que j’apprenne quelque poésies d’amours: au cas je tombe fiévreusement amoureux

Save some time for daydreaming, of stories and romantic dialogues: it is good for your soul.

April Fool comes and goes: Noticed No differences. Psyche: things are getting better?

Heard someone on his Smartphone: Mustafa ze3lan menneh. Ba3d ma dfa3tello. Wa keef fiyyeh edfa3lo?

“Black slaves pleasure themselves to tell us lies. They don’t lie among themselves”

Plus il l’estimait et moins il le comprenait.

L’athée ne peut se passer du curé: pour tenter de l’arracher a Dieu, il fit le diable

Un grand pouvoir ne se perd pas a demi: ceux qui courtisaient ses faveurs, se détournent de lui comme d’un lépreux

Le commissair en chef de la police de Bucharest a gravi tous les echelons sans avoir fait des études: Indicateur dans les prisons, planton, gardien, informateur, inspecteur stagiaire, assassin á la sold de la police…

La cruauté et une absence totale de scrupules et de sens moral sont requisent des policiers dans la plupart des pays pour gravir les échelons

Son corps est droit comme la hampre d’un drapeau. Chaque os de son corps a été brisé. C’est l’esprit du martyr qui le tient debout.

Les sans-logis sont amassés prés des No man’s lands , le long des chemins de fer et les cannaux

Roberto Saviani (Italian judge and author) said that most opium of Afghanistan and Keptagon produced in Albania are transferred by Turkish cartels, including dispatching Syrian refugees to Europe by sea.

What is common between Khan Shikhon and Joubar (Syrian towns) in 2013? Depots of chemical weapons of terrorist factions were bombed, usually stored in tunnels. Israel, USA, France and Britain would have bombed them without consulting with anyone if they were targeted. Hell, they tested nuclear detonations in open air for decades

Trustworthy? People watch what you do. They watch with the sound off. They listen to others. They seek out clues of the tiniest sort. Process developed before language was invented.

Les enfants enseignent ce qu’ils savent, avant d’oublier en grandissant. Ils ne sont pas preoccupés par les mêmes soucis

Les menaces successives finissent par dégonflé toute vertu

J’ai pratiqué la vertu avec la démesure d’un assoiffé de liberté. Et pourtant, la vertu est le contraire de la liberté.

La vertu sans un Dieu aboutit a l’absurde? Mais c’est ce Dieu qui a aboli l’humanism, le libre-arbitre

Le monde m’a impose le pavilion de la vertu. Pour les vaincus, la seule voie de salut c’est la vertu de l’obeissance. C’est un pavilion étranger a moi

Nul n’échappe á ce qu’il craint, et on ajoute des crimes pour preserver l’illusion d’ y échapper.

C’est toujour la peur qui donne le coup de grâce

La vertu est faite de petits rouages, sans valeur apparente. Mais alors, de quelle vertu de merde on parle?

 

 

 

Mother Day has always been: The first day of celebration for the New Year on April Fool Day

The French King Charles 9 declared the New Year to be on January 1st, according to the Gregorian Calendar. This was 450 years ago.

Instead of the mother, the haphazard date of Jesus birth was substituted to represent the New Year.

Charles 9 was the eldest son of Catherine of Medici, and he was pretty unstable mentally, as was her second son Henry 3.

Consequently, Charles declared April First, the former New Year day in all the western hemisphere, to be called April Fool because many still held the celebration on this day.

The dates of these celebrations were altered 3 times: When the Julian calendar was adopted, the moon calendar, and the Gregorian calendar.

Even though the dates were changed, the people in the Middle-East kept the tradition of starting the celebrating on March 21 (Nawrouz) and ending after April 1st.

Nawrouz is currently celebrated in Iran, the Kurds, Afghanistan, nIdia and many Caucasus countries.

Mother Day, or the Fertility Goddess, Ashtar (the queen of the day and night stars) had always been the first day of celebration that culminated on the New Year in April First.

Mother Day coincided with the equinox (day hours matched the night hours) and was also considered the beginning of the Spring season.

Many archaeological finds have described how the celebrations proceeded.

Syrian New Year’s eve was celebrated on the first of April 6764 years ago.

During the celebration it was prohibited to punish salves, to admonish children, or to work. Courts were not held even 10 days after Aril 1st.

The first 4 days were reserved to performing plays and recounting stories of myths. These festivities were available to all to participate.

Syrian calendar was a thousand year older than the Hebrew calendar and 500 years older than the Pharaoh’s.

The months of the calendar were named after the seasons and the corresponding main tasks performed during the month.

March (Aazar) is the month of flowers. April (Nissan) is the Spring, May (Ayyar) is the Light, June (houzayran) the harvest of cereals, July (Tammouz) the disappearance of the God Adonis (Adonis was killed in this month),  September (Ayloul) is the month of sorrow for the impotent period of fertility…

Mind you that Palm Sunday follows Mother Day and the subsequent celebration of Jesus rebirth.

رأس السنة السورية 6764 الذي يصادف الأول من نيسان

السوري يتقدم على التقويم العبري بألف عام وعلى التقويم الفرعوني القديم بخمسمئة عام، وأنه مرتبط بأساطير الخصب المنبثقة من أحوال الطبيعة وتعاقب الفصول. يرتبط التقويم السوري بعشتار الربة الأم الأولى منجبة الحياة، نجمة الصباح والمساء في آن معاً، الربة التي تصفها النصوص القديمة بأنها «في فمها يكمن سرُّ الحياة، ويشيع من ابتسامتها الأمن والطمأنينة في النفوس. عشتار التي تلقب في الأسطورة بـ«أم الزلف». وهي نفسها أم الزلف التي مازال الناس يغنون لها في أرياف ‫#‏سورية‬ الطبيعية: «عالعين يم الزلف زلفة يا موليا» نعم نغني لعشتار دون أن ندرك ذلك، فكلمة «زلف» تعني بالسريانية أشياء كثيرها أولها: «الثوب الموشى، الزينة، الجمال.. إلخ «أما كلمة «موليا» فتعني: «الخصب، الوفرة، الامتلاء، الإشباع… إلخ»

Halloween, April Fool’s, Religious signs… Are you permitted to dress up

Happy wowday

Halloween gives you permission to dress up. April Fool’s, a chance to play a prank.

What if there was one day of the year where you had permission to do things that made people say, “wow.”

Acts of generosity or bravery or insight…

What if you focused and practiced and got your nerve up and leaned way over the edge, just one day of the year?

If you could get out of your comfort zone for a few hours in a way that benefited and delighted people you care about, what would that look and feel like?

Today might be your wowday. Or tomorrow.

Up to you.

21 Hilarious Signs You Grew Up With Religious Parents

1. On Halloween you didn’t get to go trick-or-treating. Instead you went to a Hallelujah Party at church where everyone had to dress up like a Bible character. Basically you had to wear a bathrobe.

2. The only time you could buy CDs is if they came from here:

3. You knew about all of the hidden, Satanic messages in rock songs if you played them backwards.

4. If one of your friends got a piercing other than her earlobes your first thought was, “Well, she’s definitely going to hell!”

5. Every time you heard a loud rumble of thunder in the middle of the night you thought it was The Rapture.

6. If you grew up in Church of God, your college options were either Lee University or Lee University.

7. You knew who these guys were:

8. And also this couple:

9. You knew that Camp Meeting had nothing to do with exploring the woods.

10. Instead of calling adults Mr. Smith or Mrs. Jackson, it was Brother Smith and Sister Jackson.

11. If someone said “God is good” you knew to respond with “all the time” and then they would say “all the time” and you’d say “God is good.” It was basically a secret handshake.

12. The only R rated movie you were ever allowed to watch was The Passion of the Christ.

13. You had a cassette tape labeled “Michael W. Smith” but it was actually an MC Hammer mix tape because you would never be allowed to listen to that.

14. Everyone that had a tattoo was going to hell.

15. You got in trouble for taking the center cup out of the communion tray instead of just taking the next one in line.

16. Instead of joining the Boy Scouts or Girl Scouts, you were earning badges with the Royal Rangers and Missionettes.

17. You didn’t go to parties, you went to fellowship.

18. Weird Al had nothing on this guy:

Best of Mark Lowry, Vol. 1

Best of Mark Lowry, Vol. 1

19. You knew that just because the pastor said he was about to close didn’t mean he wasn’t going to keep preaching for another 30-45 minutes.

20. The most terrifying experience of your life was a little production called Heaven’s Gates, Hell’s Flames.

21. Hip-hop was strictly forbidden, unless it was by this guy: TC Mark
