The poem “I Carry Your Heart With Me” by EE Cummings has been a favorite love poem and favorite selection at weddings for many years. The poem has gained renewed interest since she appeared in the movie “In Her Shoes.” It is used to devastating effect in the film’s climactic wedding scene and again to close the film. Countless fans have been inspired to revisit the poignant words of “I carry your heart with me.”

The poet

EE Cummings was born Edward Estlin Cummings in 1894 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He died in North Conway, NH, in 1962. Cummings earned a bachelor’s degree from Harvard in 1915 and delivered the commencement address that year, titled “The New Art.” A year later he earned a master’s degree in English and classical studies, also from Harvard.

Cummings joined an American Red Cross ambulance corps in France during World War I. The French jailed him on suspicion of disloyalty, a false charge that landed Cummings in prison for three months. He wrote the novel the huge room, about your experience. Many of Cummings’ writings have an anti-war message.

Cummings was a great artist, playwright, and novelist. He studied art in Paris after World War I and adopted a cubist style in his work. He considered himself both a painter and a poet, spending much of the day painting and much of the night writing. Cummings particularly admired the artwork of Pablo Picasso. Cummings’ understanding of presentation can be seen in his use of typography to “paint a picture” with words in some of his poems.

During his lifetime, Cummings wrote more than 900 poems, two novels, four plays, and had at least half a dozen exhibitions of his artwork.

Contrary to popular opinion, Cummings never legalized his name as “ee cummings”. Your name must be correctly capitalized.

The poem

EE Cummings’ style of poetry is unique and highly visual. Her typographical independence was an experiment in punctuation, spelling, and rule-breaking. Her style imposes a certain rhythm on the poem when it is read aloud. Her language is simple and her poems become fun and playful.

Cummings’ poem, “I Carry Your Heart With Me,” is about deep love, the kind that can keep the stars apart and that can transcend soul or mind. The poem is easy to read, speak and easily understand by people of all ages.
The poem could almost be called a sonnet. It has just about the right number of lines in just about the right combination. But, typical of a Cummings poem, it goes in its own direction, and does so to great effect.

The poem makes an excellent love song when set to music. Noted guitarist Michael Hedges has set “i carry your heart” to music on his “Taproot” album. Hedges himself sings lead vocals, but backing vocals are sung by David Crosby and Graham Nash.

More than 168 of Cummings’ original poems have been set to music.

Enjoy the words and sentiments of this famous poem.

I carry your heart with me

I carry your heart with me (I carry it in

my heart) I’m never without it (anywhere

I go, you go, my dear; and whatever is done

only for me is your work, my love)

I fear

without destiny (because you are my destiny, my sweet) I want

there is no world (how beautiful you are my world, my truth)

and it’s you whatever a moon has always meant

and what a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret that no one knows

(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; that grows

higher than the soul can hope or the mind can hide)

And this is the wonder that keeps the stars apart

I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)

It shouldn’t have been a surprise that Toronto lost yesterday, even though a lot of things worked in their favor. After all, the Blue Jays had won 11 of their last 13 at home, there was a sellout crowd at the Rodgers Center, and they were playing a Detroit Tigers club that had just suffered a 13-game losing streak.

Unfortunately, the game was on Canada Day, a national holiday for the northern neighbors of the United States. It also happens to be, according to history, an unlucky day for the Canadian baseball team.

The Blue Jays have played thirty games on Canada Day at their home park over the course of their forty-year history, and all thirty have been celebrations of the national holiday. Overall, though, the baseball team has had little to celebrate on the field.

In those twenty-and-a-half contests since 1977, Toronto has won only nine and lost twenty-one. There have been eleven times the Blue Jays have played away from home on Canada Day, and they probably want to play away from home a lot more often after the schedule changes from June to July.

Unsurprisingly looking back on past occasions, the Blue Jays seemed doomed to lose again on Canada Day in 2018. They were trailing the Tigers before their last at-bat and, in fact, were one strike away from another holiday. loss.

At that point, pinch hitter Justin Smoak was walked with the bases loaded, allowing Toronto to tie the score and send the game into extra innings. That free pass incited the crowd at the Rodgers Centre, who were sure this Canada Day would break history and see their team triumph.

That hope was short-lived, as the Tigers struck back in their next at-bat. Shortstop Joe Iglesias hit a sacrifice fly that made it 3-2 for Detroit, which ended up being the final score.

Ontario fans can take comfort in the fact that the one-run loss wasn’t as bad as the one in 2001, when the division rival Boston Red Sox defeated the home team by a score of sixteen to four. A decade and a half before the Blue Jays suffered an almost equally bad Canada Day loss, the Seattle Mariners handed Toronto an eleven-to-two loss.

Despite Canada Day’s poor record in club history, there’s still reason to be excited when the Blue Jays play at home when July opens. Toronto’s two World Series championships came in 1992 and 1993, both seasons in which the Blue Jays won Canada Day.

How do you pronounce? Well, I’ve always said “duvei” but now I find that the correct way to say it is “duvet”. I’m not sure I can change. I have read that it is acceptable to say it in any way. Wow, I’m glad it’s resolved. Now… what is it?

A quilt is a bag that contains a bag of feathers or down and buttons at the bottom, simply put. Now, let me give you a little better description. The free encyclopedia, Wikipedia, states that: “A quilt is a type of bedding. It is a flat, soft bag traditionally filled with down or feathers, or a combination of both, and used on a bed as a blanket. Comforters originated in rural Europe and were made from the down of eider ducks, known for its usefulness as insulation.Comforter and duvet covers are not as popular in the United States as they are in Europe.

Making the bed with a duvet is very simple because most people do not use the top sheet. It’s just a simple process of fluffing the down comforter and smoothing it out on the bed. The duvet cover can be used alone in the summer and in the winter just add the down comforter for extra warmth. These covers are reversible and with just a quick twist you can change the look of the bedroom.

Duvet cover sets are also reasonably priced, so the look of a bedroom can change with the seasons for little money. Comforters are sold as 3+ piece sets or as a bed in a bag. Some of the bagged bedding sets I sell also include an alternative down comforter. Egyptian cotton fabrics create a luxurious bedtime experience. The wonderful feel of a 600 or 900 thread count duvet cover or colored sheets up to 1500 thread count will allow you to sleep like a king or queen. After all, this is the fabric of the pharaohs of the land of the Nile.

There is a large selection of down comforters, duvet covers and comforter sets made from Egyptian cotton.

I appreciate any comments you want to leave.

Have a wonderful day and sleep in luxury in Egyptian cottons.

Eight tips for coaching youth soccer

This is a crash course on how to coach a youth soccer team. Follow these eight tips to help your team have a winning season. The most important thing for kids is to have fun, but it’s always easier to have fun when your team wins. You’ll learn how to start and end each practice, and how to use the stick and wedge formation to build a defensive-minded team that results in wins instead of losses. This article will be especially useful for those who want to know how to train u8 or 810 football, but it applies to all age levels.

Here are the tips for coaching a winning team:

1- Team race

Have your players line up along the goalkeeper’s box. Ask them to hold hands and run to the opposite side of the field and back. Tell them that they need to jog as fast as the slowest player. This simple exercise builds unity and a sense of purpose.

2- Find a goalkeeper

Line up your team in the center of the field and have them run to the penalty line and back to help you identify the faster players from the slower ones. Ask them to line up and kick the ball. Ask the top two or three kids who can kick the ball the farthest if they would be goalkeepers. If not, ask if they would be a reservation.

If you can’t find a player interested in the job, ask the top candidates if they would play goalkeeper one time and striker the next. Most kids want to play in the striker/striker position and score goals, so offering to rotate two players as goalkeeper in one midfielder and striker in the next makes the goalkeeper position more appealing.

3- Stick Defense

Make defense a priority. Use a “stick” defense where you stack five kids in front of the goalie. The stick rotates around the goalkeeper like a clock hand, pointing towards the opposing player who is attacking your goal. It can extend to the midfield line when the ball moves into the opponent’s penalty area.

In general, there is a fifty percent chance that the other team will have a star player who can dribble down the field and score. Traditional teams have three or four forwards and three or four running backs. These lineups leave three players to defend the goal (and one or two chasing runners). Five defenders are better. If you play less than 11 due to illness or vacation, you can shorten the suit to three or four players. Even with nine players, there are still three defenders.

Players at the stick are numbered one through five, with one being closest to the goal. You want your slower, less skilled players to play the stick. It is important to have a bigger and faster player in the position of two to control the stick. When the ball is on the other side of the field, the #2 signals the others to move up and stretch the stick. The less skilled player should be at post #3, where the two of them can manage the player while he defends the goal.

4- Wedge Halfbacks

The running back or midfielder positions form a “wedge” of three people. The wedge is sent to stop the opposing offense and deflect the ball into opposing territory. The center position is flanked by a player to the left and right who are five feet behind and ten feet to the sides of the center. They travel together, searching for the opposition attacker. They do not cross the center of the field, and act as a protective “cover” to the stick. The center, like all “first” defenders, must follow the attacker to force him to stop or slow down. The center maintains a five to ten foot cushion from the attacker, retreating as needed. The attacker should go left or right, but will likely slow down as the left or right wedge player presses closer to the center. Attacking the formation is frustrating. Trying to get past seven players instead of getting around a few is tough.

If the attacking player passes to their left or right side of the formation, the right wedge player becomes the center and follows the ball handler while the center stays back and takes the right side. The wedge reforms when the left wedge player slides and holds the left side of the wedge.

5- Two strikers

The remaining two players are flexible positions. One should play center forward, playing as high up as possible. The center forward plays as far as he can without being offside. The other striker plays outside striker, moving left or right, following the ball when he is on defense. The outside forward hangs out near midfield and needs to receive the ball to push down the sideline or pass to the center forward.

6- The first half is all defense

This formation seems slow as it is not attack oriented. The strategy of the stick and wedge formation is to physically wear down the opposition in the first half, allowing the formation to advance towards the opposition’s goal later in the second half.

Starting with a strong defense and adjusting to more offense is always the right move in youth soccer. A strong offense does little when his team trails 0-2 after five minutes of play. The stick and wedge formation draws in more opposing players on offense to equal the number of defensive players, weakening their defense as the game progresses.

7- The weakness of each team

The weakness of almost all formations is when an opposing team quickly moves the ball down the sideline and into your penalty area. You can take an additional player to mark your star player, resulting in one less in the stick. The stick must not extend laterally outside the penalty area. Let your forwards shoot between the penalty area and the sideline. When they cross the ball, you’ll have plenty of defenders to contest their attack.

8- PK are ok

There is nothing wrong with a tie. Prepare your team for penalty kicks. It’s fun to end your practices with penalty kick drills. A great drill is to put an assistant coach in goal with your goalkeeper and another player. Have all three spread out, each defending a third of the goal. Have your players line up in an arc around the goal and shoot balls into the net at the same time. It’s great practice and makes a real pk easier as there will only be one goalkeeper and not three.

Teach your kids to “pass” the ball into the net with the inside of their foot instead of trying to shoot it with the inside of their foot. This is a more accurate shot from close range and almost as powerful.

This stick and wedge works and provides a formation with the most defense. Start off strong on defense and add more offense as needed later in the game. Find a goalie first and fill out the rest of your team. There is nothing wrong with a tie. You now have the knowledge to put your team in position to win and have a successful season!

FC Barcelona started their 2010-11 season with the threat of the special, José Mourinho, as he knocked Barcelona out of the Champions League semi-final last year with his unprecedented tactics. But Barca have shown their superlative class once again by winning the double, La Liga Crown three times in a row with two games to spare and the great Champions League Crown twice in three years by teaching their opponent some really good football. lesson. Furthermore, Barça made a spectacular record of 28 games without losing and 16 consecutive league wins in the 2010-2011 La Liga season. Barça now has to do with the “Dream Team”.

the league

Barça were dramatically beaten 2-0 at Camp Nou in their second game against newcomer Hércules CF! It was a surprise, not a fact, Barça showed it in their following games. They managed to win the third successive La Liga crown with two games to spare.

Series of “The classics”

Five “The classic” in one season and four of them occurred in April-May only in a time range of 18 days. In recent history, in 2001-02 alone the two Giants met four times in a season and before that, when they met more or as evenly as this season, I really don’t remember.

The first“The classic” of the season took place on November 29. The new manager of Madrid, his outstanding performance in the league before this match, the tiredness of the Spanish players after the world cup, etc. were the main problems before the game. But as soon as the referee blew the whistle to start the battle, it was back to being the beauty of football drawn by none other than the Barça players. Barça gave its fans an unforgettable Five Star by beating its eternal rival 5-0 at the Camp Nou on the 111th birthday of the best club in the world. Barça top the table, 8 points ahead of Madrid with this victory and the leading position was as stable as Everest until the end of the season.

The second“The classic” It was a 1-1 draw at the Santiago Bernabeu while both Messi scored for the first time against Mourinho and Ronaldo did against Barcelona after his arrival at the Santiago Bernabeu. After the game, Barça was also eight points ahead of Madrid.

Third“The classic” I was in “Ray’s Cup Final so it was a great match for both of them. Mourinho maintained his super-defensive strategy and ultimately secured a win and a trophy as Ronaldo scored in the 102nd minute at Mestalla. Barca owned 70% of the first half goal without any real effort before the goal post occurred. Barça improved in the second half, creating chances but everything went well and in the 90 minutes it was 0-0. Ronaldo then scored in the 102nd minute and this was the decisive one as Barça failed to score but continued to press.

the 4th “The classic” was in the long-awaited Champions League Semifinal. The first game was at the Santiago Bernabéu. Mourinho harshly criticized Pep Guardiola when Guardiola commented on disqualifying a goal during the king’s cup final. Immediately after Mourinho left the press conference, Guardiola responded fast and furiously like never before as he used the “F word”. This incident added extra spice before the battle. On the battlefield we saw the reflection of Guardiola’s anger as the Barça players all rushed towards the referee in the face of any foul committed by a Madrid player. Barcelona were playing their natural attacking game and Madrid were sticking to their defensive plan. It was 0-0 after the break. When two teams were on their way to the locker room, Pinto, Barça’s substitute goalkeeper, received a red card and there was a clash between some players from both teams. About game time Pepe committed a foul against Dani Alves and the referee gave him a direct red card. Barça’s plan worked. But from the replay we could easily see that it was a Dani Alves masterpiece. Mourinho also received a red card when he made an illegal gesture to the referee. Then Barça took advantage of 10 men and Messi scored in the 76th minute and doubled it by pure magic in the 87th and the last one was without a doubt one of the best goals in the history of the Champions League. After regulation time it was a big 2-0 lead and Barça was almost through to the final.

the 5th “The classic” It was a cruel formality as it was more than impossible to keep Barca out of Wembley when they had a 2-0 away lead. 1-1 draw at the Camp Nou. Barça scored first and Madrid tied. Mourinho wasn’t even in the stands during the match. Barça went to Wembly.

Champions League

It would be an injustice for Barça if I didn’t mention the game against Arsenal. Cesc Fábregas returned to play for the losing side. Arsenal had a 2-1 lead at home but failed to use it at the Camp Nou, where they were humiliated 4-1 last year and all the goals were scored by little Argentine magician Messi. This year Messi once again made the difference, his first goal showed the world that his ability has no limits. Arsenal made an incredible record by breaking the record of over a thousand matches in the Champions League. In this match they couldn’t shoot a single shot at the target! The score was 3-1 and the only goal was an own goal by Sergio Busquets.

Champions League Final: This is obviously considered to be the biggest game of a season. Barça players called the match the last Champions League final of their lives, as did Guardiola in 1992 at Wembley, where Barça had won their first Champions League Final Trophy. Sir Alex Ferguson called it the “End of the Decade”. Some said it would be “Dj Seen” from the 2008-09 season, others said that ManU improved. When the match started the first ten minutes, ManU gave Barca a great challenge, but then he was back to being the beauty of football at his supreme level, Manu became the bus stop once again. The match ended 3-1 and could have been much worse. The game is now considered the best Champions League final in terms of any team’s class of football.

Finally, it was another successful mission for FC Barcelona. They got the Double and created a few collective and individual records this season. Now they are the closest to the “Dream Team” while some people have already expressed that they are the “Dream Team” or better than that! But one thing is for sure, Lionel Messi is getting closer to stopping repeating the question “Who is the best player of all time, Pele or Maradona?”.

Every year, Bollywood churns out a plethora of supposedly “laugh-out-loud” comedies. However, genuinely funny movies like ‘Hera Pheri’ (2000), ‘Lagey Raho Munnabhai’ (2006) and ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ (1994) are becoming rarer as directors focus more on including comedic situations in his movies. The best we’ve received in terms of decent comedy in recent times is ‘Chashme Baddoor’ (2013), although the one starring Ali Zafar was nothing exceptional. Let’s take a look at some of the most pathetic attempts at making Hindi comedy movies in the post-2000 era:

  1. Daddy Cool (2009) – With ‘Daddy Cool,’ K. Murli Mohan Rao accomplishes the nearly impossible task of turning 2007’s sleeper hit ‘Death At A Funeral’ into an overlong, unfunny movie. His star cast included actors who were past their sell-by date, like Suniel Shetty and Aftab Shivdasani, or those whose careers never took off, like Aarti Chhabria, Ashish Chowdhury and Tulip Joshi. The whole charade about a dead body left a bad taste in the mouths of the handful of people who ventured to see ‘Daddy Cool’ in a theater.
  2. Rascals (2011) – Like Ram Gopal Verma, David Dhawan is another filmmaker who has lost his mojo many years ago. If you need any confirmation for that, try watching ‘Rascals’ on TV or DVD. It’s just infuriating to see two older actors (in age and looks!) like Sanjay Dutt and Ajay Devgn fighting for the attentions of a much younger Kangna Ranaut. A wooden Arjun Rampal played the role of the bad guy in ‘Rascals’, which understandably sank without a trace.
  3. It’s Rocking… Dard-E-Disco (2012) – You may or may not be a Bappi Lahiri fan, but you have to admit that the ‘disco king of India’ deserved a better tribute than this monstrosity. Sneha Ullal, the clone of Aishwarya Rai who made his debut in ‘Lucky: No Time For Love’ (2005) once again proves that he has no acting skills, while Akshay Kapoor engages in inexplicable antics in the film. Bappi Lahiri himself has an extended cameo in the film, though why he agreed to it will forever remain a mystery. Watch the man’s songs on TV, listen to them on music streaming mobile apps, but avoid this movie. Nothing rocks about it!
  4. Chatur Singh Two Star (2011) – Don’t be fooled by the name: this lame excuse for a comedy movie doesn’t deserve two (or any, for that matter) stars. Sanjay Dutt, in a ghastly wig, plays the title character, with Ameesha Patel (whose career had begun to decline) as his love interest. A hot number and a couple of Suresh Menon gags couldn’t save this movie.
  5. Kambakkht Ishq (2009) – Akshay Kumar landed four clean shots in 2007, but his magic began to fail soon after. Sabbir Khan’s highly touted ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ was expected to revive Akki’s career, but he did just the opposite. With a central idea of ​​a wristwatch being accidentally planted in a patient’s stomach and having the chant ‘Om Mangalam’ set as its alarm tone, the film was panned by viewers and critics alike. Kareena Kapoor played her role in the nonsensical events, while Denise Richards and Sylvester Stallone made friendly appearances. We’re pretty sure the latter two had no idea how bad the movie was shaping up to be!
  6. O Teri (2014) – Very recent and amazingly bad. Salman Khan and his friend Atul Agnihotri produced this film (the former even appeared for a song during the end credits). Pulkit Samrat, who wowed everyone with 2013’s ‘Fukrey’, was paired with newcomer Bilal Amrohi, and the two played one of the worst bromances in Hindi film history. Sarah Jane Dias was miscast as the head of a media house. Mandira ‘noodle strap’ Bedi had a role, but no one was interested in paying big bucks to see ‘O Teri’. There’s a good chance you won’t be able to catch a TV rerun of the movie either.
  7. God Tussi Great Ho (2008) – If you are a fan of Jim Carrey’s ‘Bruce Almighty’, watch it again or try to find a Hindi dubbed version of the film. Don’t bother watching ‘God Tussi Great Ho’: Rumi Jaffrey’s uniformly howling account of that iconic film. Those were the days when Salman Khan hadn’t started making South Indian movie remakes, and this was among his rather long list of flops. However, one feels sorry for Priyanka Chopra, the heroine of this slapstick. Oh, and Amitabh Bachhan had a bit of a role as God. What ‘Players’ did to ‘The Italian Job’, ‘God Tussi Great Ho’ did to ‘Bruce Almighty’, long before.
  8. What’s your Raashee? (2009) – This time, a Piggy Chops masterclass (he played 12 different roles!) wasn’t enough to shore up this boring Ashutosh Gowariker fest. Harman Baweja, who already had an unsuccessful sci-fi movie (‘Love Story 2050’) and a sports movie (‘Victory’) delivered another flop with ‘What’s Your Raashee?’ His Gujarati boy act was sadly unconvincing, the script was all over the place, and while there were a couple of good songs, it never lived up to its billing as a ‘social comedy’.
  9. No Problem (2010) – If you think no director could screw up a movie that had so many A-list actors (from Anil Kapoor and Akshaye Khanna, to Sushmita Sen, Kangna Ranaut and Bipasha Basu), you’d be underestimating the powers that be. by Anees Bazmee. To ensure that the film’s host of big stars got enough screen time, Bazmee probably forgot the importance of having a cohesive story as well. A Suniel Shetty hamming didn’t help things either.
  10. Buddha Mar Gaya (2007) – The best comedic actors from previous and current generations starred in probably the worst movie on this list. Anupam Kher played the role of a corpse (if that makes any sense to you!), while reliable stars like Om Puri and Paresh Rawal strutted around the corpse in a completely insane way. The idea that Kher’s character died while trying to have fun “under the covers” with Rakhi Sawant was just repulsive. If you have a deep-seated hatred towards someone, you may consider gifting them a DVD copy of ‘Buddha Mar Gaya’!
  11. Shortkut: The Con Is On (2009) – Neeraj Vora got a taste of box office success with ‘Phir Hera Pheri’ (2006), and that probably gave him the confidence to create this bland fare three years later. Arshad Warsi and Akshaye Khanna’s attempts at humor were crude, and Amrita Rao’s much-hyped glamorous avatar went largely unappreciated. Goofy dialogue added to the testiness of the already convoluted plot. The only interesting thing about the movie was the way the filmmakers played with the word ‘Shortcut’ in its title.
  12. Pyar Impossible (2010) – For an actress of her caliber, Priyanka Chopra has delivered a staggering number of unwatchable flops. In ‘Pyar Impossible’, she was paired with Uday Chopra, whose only claim to fame over the last decade and a half has been the role of sidekick in the ‘Dhoom’ franchise. The film tried, and failed miserably, to capture the fresh romantic feel of ‘Notting Hill’ (1999). Director Jugal Hansraj had a miserable acting career and with ‘Pyar Impossible’ he showed that cinematic skills were not his forte either.
  13. Pyare Mohan (2006) – Released right before ‘Tom Dick and Harry,’ both films made fun of disabled people in the name of comedy. However, the latter at least had Himesh Reshammiya’s blockbusters, while Fardeen Khan-Viveik Oberoi’s leading man fell short in that regard as well. Laughs were few and far between during the film, it hardly ever gets aired on television, and the two leads (Amrita Rao and Esha Deol) have hit dead ends in their respective acting careers. We are not surprised!
  14. Bin Bulaye Baraati (2011) – In his first couple of movies, Aftab Shivdasani looked cute. Later, he began to put on weight, his acting skills deteriorated remarkably and he fell out of favor with his former mentor Ram Gopal Verma. ‘Bin Bulaye Baraati’ features Aftab in the most pathetic performance of his entire (albeit brief!) career. Giving him company in this completely rotten film were former RGV muse Priyanka/Nisha Kothari, Rajpal Yadav, Gulshan Grover and Shakti Kapoor. Shweta Tiwari’s raunchy article number added a dollop of vulgarity in this already doomed film.
  15. Tees Maar Khan (2010) – Farah Khan fell out with his best friend Shah Rukh Khan when the latter (wisely) opted out of this film, and Akshay Kumar was cast as his replacement. A fairly successful music album, with Katrina Kaif’s moves on the track ‘Sheila Ki Jawaani’ being the highlight, gave the film a fair amount of pre-release buzz. Then the movie came out and people found out how outrageous the plot was (stealing a train loaded with treasure by fooling an entire town, in case you were wondering) and unanimously gave it a thumbs down. Akshaye Khanna’s movie star act elicited a few laughs, but that was it. Farah made up with Shah Rukh later, and hopefully future movies of him will be nice again.
  16. Housefull 2 ​​(2012) – If Sister Farah can make this list, can Brother Sajid stay behind? Certainly not! The latter failed to win over critics with ‘Heyy Baby’ and ‘Housefull’, and turned it into a hat-trick of poorly crafted comedies with ‘Housefull 2’. The film had plenty of star power, from Akshay Kumar and Asin, to Riteish Deshmukh, Mithun Chakraborty and Boman Irani. However, the story of mistaken identities: in ‘Housefull 2’, the three main actors posed as ‘Jolly’ and the viewers were left just as confused as the other people on the screen. Veterans Rishi and Randhir Kapoor contributed miscasts, and someone should have told Sajid not to cast John Abraham in a comedic role. However, the film was a huge success at the box office, but fate finally caught up with Sajid Khan with his next release.

Govinda, the king of Bollywood comedies in the late ’90s, tried his luck with ‘Chal Chalein’ (2009) and ‘Do Knot Disturb’ (2009), both equally embarrassing. Recent remakes of South starring Salman Khan have failed to impress critics, but ‘Ready’ (2011) can be singled out as the most terrifyingly bad attempt at making a funny movie. Rohit Shetty’s ‘Golmaal’ series might not be National Award winning material, but it looks like an absolute masterpiece compared to these films.

If you haven’t seen any of the above movies, you’re one lucky person!

I bet you’ve just never seen a real white elephant or white elephant egg, have you? These albino elephants are so rare and extraordinary that only kings can own them when they find them. So think of the rarity of a real white elephant egg!

Today you can have a royal white elephant egg hunt with your loved ones and close friends. Like any other albino elephant exchange, this is an opportunity to share nice gifts and great conversation with those you care about. But you will have to substitute one thing for the extremely rare albino elephant eggs, and we recommend the common melon! A melon looks like you imagine an elephant egg to be.

After you’ve collected your substitute elephant eggs from the nearby shopkeeper, you need to prepare them for the gift exchange party. Use a marker to identify each “egg” and make sure there is 1 egg for each player. We suggest you find a food-safe marker and write on the outside of the melon. The skin of a melon is thick like the skin of an elephant, so the ink should not affect the fruit.

You’ll set up the party using the typical guidelines for a white elephant gift exchange. Send invitations and suggest that they bring gifts that can add to the enjoyment of the event. Easter is a great time to host this celebration, so you can suggest Easter gifts or any Easter themed gift requirements.

On the day of the occasion, you will need to hide the eggs, just as you would for an Easter egg hunt. This is a bit different simply because these eggs are the size of a white elephant, so you may need to leave your lawn unmown for a while before the party.

The celebration begins with the entire hunt for elephant eggs hidden in the yard. Inform players that the numbers on the eggs will likely be their order of choice of gifts within the gift exchange portion of the game.

Shortly after all the eggs have been claimed, gather them in the kitchen to process them into the “baby elephant eggs” with a Melon Baller. Just remember to record who had what number so it’s possible to use it within the trading part with the party. Then use the freshly produced fruit ball treats as part of your snacks for your guests.

Now you’re ready for the gift exchange as you would any standard white elephant gift party. Unlike randomly drawing names inside a hat, you will use the order of the numbers on the white elephant eggs.

Now you understand that the white elephant gift exchange is not just for the holiday season, but could be a strategy for sharing gifts and pleasant conversation on almost any holiday, including Easter.

There is a distant, dim domain of eternal twilight at the outer reaches of our Solar System, where our Sun can shine softly with only a faint, faint fire. This remote region is called Kuiper belt, and is home to the dwarf planet Pluto, its large icy moon, Charon, and a host of other frozen objects including a dancing sea of ​​icy comet nuclei. Fragile and ephemeral, the comets that approach the bright light and melting heat of our Star, are the refugees fleeing this remote region of perpetual twilight. In February 2020, NASA planetary scientists new Horizons mission to Pluto, and beyond, announced that data collected from this mission is providing new insights into how the planets and planetesimals–the building blocks of the planets–were born in our primordial Solar System. Tea new Horizons the spaceship rose past the old Kuiper Belt Object (KBO) Arrokoth (2014 MU 69) on January 1, 2019, giving humanity its first close-up view of one of those mysterious icy relics from the birth of our Solar System nearly five billion years ago.

Using detailed data on by Arrokoth shape, geology, color, and composition, collected during an unprecedented flyby that took place more than 4,000,000,000 miles from Earth, planetary scientists announced in February 2020 that they have been able to answer a long-standing question about planetesimal origins, and thus have made a great advance in our understanding of how the planets were born. The team reports those findings in a set of three articles published in the February 13, 2020, issue of the journal. Sciences. The scientists also presented their findings at a press conference held at the annual event. American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) meeting in Seattle, Washington.

486958 Arrokoth is the temporary name of 2014 MU69has transneptunian object. It’s a binary contact22 miles long, made up of a primordial ice duo planetesimals that measure 13 miles and 9 miles wide. Both planetesimals have been dubbed Latest Y thulerespectively, and are joined along their principal axes. Latest is flatter than thule, and is actually an aggregate of 8 or more smaller objects, each about 3 miles across. These smaller objects are thought to have merged before Latest Y thule put and merge together. Because there have apparently been few or no catastrophic impacts on Arrokoth since it formed, its formation story has been preserved in the deep freeze of our Solar System, far from the molten heat of our turbulent star.

Arrokoth it is both the most distant and the most primitive object in our Solar System to be visited by a spacecraft. It was discovered on June 26, 2014 by Dr. Marc Bule and the new Horizons Search team using the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) as part of a hunt KBO which would become the goal of new Horizons on his first extended mission. This discovery required the use of the HST because, with an apparent magnitude of only 26, Arrokoth it is too faint to be observed except by the most powerful telescopes. Tea HST it also has the ability to perform extremely accurate astrometry. This means that it can provide a reliable determination of an orbit.

Arrokoth was elected over two other candidates KBOand so it became the fate of New Horizons’ extended mission beyond Pluto. With an orbital period of about 298 years and a low orbital inclination and eccentricity, Arrokoth a cold classic is designated KBO.

the temporary name Arrokoth comes from the Powhatan region of Virginia and Maryland, where by Arrokoth discovery occurred. Tea HST Y Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory both operate in Maryland and are primarily responsible for by Arrokoth 2014 discovery.

Pluto and beyond

On July 14, 2015, after his perilous decade-long space odyssey, new Horizons reached its main objective Kuiper belt–tea ice dwarf planet Pluto and its family of five icy moons, including its large moon, Charon, which is almost half the size of Pluto. new Horizonsafter successfully making its historic closest approach to the Pluto system, it sent back to Earth some revealing images of this faraway little world with a big heart.

For most of the 20th century, astronomers considered Pluto to be a lonely little world, where it inhabits the outer domain of our Solar System. However, this point of view changed in 1992, when a second KBO was discovered in this region. Because of this discovery, planetary scientists realized that Pluto is far from alone in this remote, frozen region of perpetual twilight. In fact, Pluto orbits our star in the company of myriad others of its mysterious and frigid kind. Since 1992, astronomers have discovered a multitude of other small, rocky worlds, very similar to Pluto, in search of these distant bodies. Some of the other distant inhabitants of our Solar System’s deep freeze also orbit our star in eccentric orbits, as does Pluto. Tea dwarf planet eris is one of the most important of these scattered disk objects. Discovered in 2005, eris it is slightly more massive than Pluto, and its discovery is what forced planetary scientists to realize that Pluto is just one of many. As a result, at that time, poor little Pluto was unceremoniously evicted from the pantheon of major planets, and is now classified as a ice dwarf–a mother dwarf planet, target has planet nevertheless. Before that, Pluto was classified as the ninth main planet of our star.

KBO they are generally believed to be made up primarily of a combination of ice and rock. Tea Kuiper belt extends from the orbit of Neptune to about 50 astronomical units (AU). A A is equal to the average distance between the Earth and the Sun, which is approximately 93,000,000 miles. The average distance from Neptune to our star is about 30.1 A–its perihelion (when it is closest to our Star) is 29.8 Awhile his aphelion (when it is furthest from our Star) is 30.4 A.

After completing its primary mission of a flyby of Pluto and its moons, the New Horizon spacecraft was maneuvered for its future flight over the distant Arrokoth.

Arrokoth and its many mysteries

Arrokoth, as the most remote, primitive and purest object ever explored by a spacecraft, it has a unique story to tell us. This small, remote object has enabled planetary scientists to make important progress in their understanding of how planets formed in the early Solar System. The first post-flyby images obtained from new Horizons in 2019 revealed that Arrokoth it actually consists of two interconnected blades with smooth surfaces as well as the same composition. This indicates that it is most likely a pristine object, and as such provides valuable information about how it was formed.

These exciting new finds add to the many historic achievements of an important mission. NASA discoveries obtained from new Horizons they have enhanced our knowledge and understanding of how planetary bodies were born in our Solar System, as well as in distant planetary systems beyond our own.

In the future, the new Horizons the team plans to use data with higher resolution. The scientists also plan to use sophisticated supercomputer simulations to model how Arrokoth it may have formed billions of years ago.

His analysis has already revealed that by Arrokoth The “binary contact” lobes were originally two separate objects, orbiting close to each other at slow speeds. Finally, the duo gently collided and merged to form the 22mm body seen by New Horizons.

This information indicates that Arrokoth was born during the gravitational collapse of solid particle clouds in the original primordial solar nebula that gave rise to our Sun and its family of planets, moons and other objects, about 4.56 billion years ago. In dramatic contrast to a high-velocity collision and hierarchical build-up, the particles that created Arrokoth they gently merged as the cloud collapsed. This indicates that Arrokoth, and other similar objects that inhabited the ancient Solar System, gradually increased in size to form larger and larger bodies. In a way that has been compared to the way fossils show the way species on our own planet evolved, persisting planetesimals I like it Arrokoth reveal how planets evolved in our own Solar System, and beyond.

Arrokoth It wouldn’t look the way it does if it had formed as a result of a violent collision in our primordial Solar System. Instead, the evidence indicates that it was formed as a result of a more complex and gentle ballet in which the two dancers planetesimals they slowly orbited each other before their dance gravitationally attracted them both, thus forming the two individual lobes planetesimal observed today.

Two other important lines of evidence support this scenario. The uniform surface composition and color of Arrokoth they reveal that it formed from materials dancing very close to each other, as local collapse patterns within the clouds predicted. This is in contrast to a model indicating that it formed from material located in regions further apart from the primordial core. sun nebula.

In addition, the flattened shape of each of by Arrokoth two lobes, as well as its very close polar alignment and equator, indicate that it was born in an orderly cradle. Also, by Arrokoth The smooth surface suggests that its face has been well preserved in the dark, deep freeze of our Solar System since the end of the era of planet formation. This means that Arrokoth shows physical properties indicating that it was formed as a result of the gradual and smooth merging of objects that formed close to each other in the sun nebula.

The three articles published in the February 13, 2020 edition of the magazine Sciences they are based on ten times more data than the first published reports of the new findings. Together, the documents provide a more complete description of by Arrokoth mysterious origins.

new Horizons continue observing objects dancing in the distance Kuiper belt. In the summer of 2020, the new Horizons team plans to use a large telescope on Earth to search for more KBO that can be studied, and also search for other potential targets for the spacecraft.

As of this writing, the new Horizons The spacecraft is 7.1 billion kilometers from Earth. It is still operating normally, as it soars through this uncharted, frigid twilight region at speeds of almost 50,400 kilometers per hour.

Principal Investigator of New Horizons Dr. Alan Stern explained his reasons for giving Arrokoth your name:

“Name ‘Arrokoth’ reflects the inspiration of looking to the skies and wondering about the stars and the worlds beyond our own. That desire to learn is at the heart of the New Horizons’ mission, and we are honored to join the Powhatan community and the people of Maryland in this celebration of discovery.”

Every good Christian is familiar with the story of the Passion of Jesus Christ. If you are not a Christian, but have seen the movie, Passion of Christ, it’s hard to forget the gruesome parts: his brutal punishment, the arduous walk to the cross, and the horrific crucifixion. Most media, from early medieval paintings to modern movies, depict a weary, hunched-over Jesus carrying the wooden cross to Golgatha (the site of the skull) where he was crucified. However, many scholars believe that Christ only carried the crossbar to which his wrists were nailed. Many others are traditionalists who agree that art confirms the “total” cross-cutting vision. Incredibly, the Bible never says that Jesus carried his own cross, except in the Book of John.: Carrying his own cross, he went out to the place of the Skull (called Golgotha ​​in Aramaic) (John 19:17, NIV). All the other gospels include Simon of Cyrene as the reluctant man who helps Jesus on the way to Golgatha. However, I believe that Christ carried the full or partial weight of the cross.

In my opinion, the Shroud of Turin is the famous large cloth that is the true linen on which the temporarily dead body of Christ lay for three days. It bears the imprint of the body of Jesus. Through careful analysis of the biological and forensic evidence, we can learn about how Jesus suffered.

Jesus was so weak from the scourging that he could barely carry the crossbar. Two large straight and diagonal abrasions are marked on the back of the Shroud from the right shoulder blade to the left. Jesus’ arms and hands were tied to the crossbar. He would have to be heavy for a person who had not been severely beaten, like Simon of Cyrene, to carry Jesus’ crossbar. According to Dr. Pierre Barbet, one of the first innovative authors of A Doctor at Calvary: The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ Described by a Surgeon, the crossbar called pittabulum would have weighed about 125 pounds and the large upright pole, the stems would have weighed 250 pounds. (Rent 861, Kindle)

To make matters worse, Jesus’ arms and hands were tied to the crossbar. Therefore, he could not have walked half a mile to Golgatha without falling because he walked barefoot over rough and uneven ground. The Shroud reveals evidence that Christ’s nose appears to be broken and his right cheek swollen—injuries consisting of one or more falls while he carried the crossbar for as long as he did. Under microscopic analysis, the Shroud shows dirt and lime particles on his face.

When Jesus and Simon arrived at the crucifixion site, the Pitabbul and Jesus were placed on the ground. Roman soldiers then hammered nails into his wrists. Afterward, they hoisted the Pitábulo and Jesus onto a wedge placed in the middle of the estípites (sticks) that had already been driven into the ground. They then hammered a nail into his feet. This type of cross is known as a “T” shaped “tau” cross.

On the other hand, many of today’s Shroud scholars believe that Christ carried the entire cross. According to Andrè Marion and Gerard Lucotte, French authors of the groundbreaking 2006 book, The Shroud of Turin and the robe of Argenteuil, Jesus carried the whole cross. Using computer models, which analyzed the back of the Shroud, they discovered that there were more than two abrasion marks on the Shroud; there were nine blood marks that correspond to the robe that Jesus wore (John 19:23-24). The markings on the tunic indicate a cross pattern, created by the pressure of the entire withers (pitabulum and stipes) on his back, even though the tunic cushioned the bruises.

What about the two diagonal bruise marks on his back? The new computerized data clearly shows more bruises forming a perpendicular criss-cross pattern from his bruised shoulders to where the stipes meet the pitabulum between and below both shoulder blades. Marion’s analysis of the Shroud and the Argenteuil Robe suggests that the top of the vertical beam was carried over the left shoulder, while the entire weight of the horizontal beam fell on the right shoulder. This could have dislocated his shoulder.

But Jesus could not have carried a cross that weighed 350 pounds. However, for Jesus to have carried the entire cross, the stipes (vertical post) and the pitábulo (crossbar), it would have weighed much less. According to legend, in AD 326, Helena, the mother of Emperor Constantine of Rome, made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem to find the location of the cross of Christ. Witnesses commented that she not only found the cross of Jesus in an area under Golgatha, but also the crosses of criminals. She could not determine which cross belonged to Jesus, so a terminally ill woman touched each cross until she placed her hand on which she miraculously made her illness disappear.

Helena brought the relics related to the crucifixion to Rome. In the Basilica of the Holy Cross in Jerusalem, the pitábulo of the good thief is exhibited. It measures 180 cm long x 13 cm wide x 13 cm high. His weight is 20 kg or 45 pounds. It is estimated that the stipes measured 250 cm long x 11.5 cm wide x 11.5 cm high. His weight is 25 kg or 55 pounds. So the total weight of Jesus’ cross would be about 90 pounds. (From an anonymous article, Why Jesus carried the whole cross and not just the scaffold.) Interestingly, this evidence supports the fact that the bruise marks were the same size, between 11 and 13 cm long.

Jesus would have had serious problems walking, confined to a 45-pound scaffold mounted only on his shoulders with his hands and arms tied to him. By carrying the entire 90-pound cross, he would have had his hands free, while dragging some of his weight behind him. So if Jesus carried a much lighter full cross, it would have been the traditional “Latin” cross: a “t”.

It has also been speculated that Jesus had to carry the entire cross, because the dirty, used stipes covered in blood and feces were dug out of their holes in the ground and stored. This was probably done because in and around a holy place like Jerusalem, religious law prohibits anyone from touching anything unclean. So, Jesus and the two thieves crucified with him had to carry both the stipes and the pitábulo. In more secular parts of the Roman Empire, the foul stipes lay on the ground waiting for their next victim. So, traditionally the tau cross was used and not the Latin cross, exclusive to Jesus.

Early experts who analyzed the Shroud of Turin believed that the doomed Messiah only wore the Pitabule because only two abrasion marks were visible on the upper right back and lower left back. Today, using the latest computer technology, more evidence that Jesus carried the entire cross has emerged by re-examining the Shroud of Turin, the robe of Argenteuil, and the good thief’s cross. The robe worn by Jesus at the crucifixion overlapped the markings on the Shroud. Measurements of the good thief’s crossbar indicate that it weighed much less than previously thought, as did the stipes. With this evidence, it is more likely that Jesus carried the entire cross, with the help of Simon of Cyrene, to the crucifixion site, validating the traditional artistic view of Jesus carrying the entire cross.

Homosexuality… Is it a matter of choice? Are some born like this? And if so, how could God condemn him? Or does he do it? Does it make any difference? Who offered it as an “alternative lifestyle”? Are homosexual urges due to conditioning? Are gays and lesbians a freak of nature? Something weird to make fun of? Would it have been better never to have been born? All these questions and more are just some of the many that go through people’s minds; causing controversy, heated arguments and emotional wounds, while words fly from one side to another without a care.

It might be safe to say that homosexuality is the result of many factors. But who is to blame? Should we put a guilt trap on someone’s door? Maybe mother, then again there is the father who didn’t think too much. Society? Genoa? The stars? Most people know their sexual orientation from adolescence. They don’t suddenly find out they’re “straight” and “come out” about it. Let’s be realistic.

Who will accept responsibility for our actions? Some have felt “homosexual” since they were very young and so imagine that they were born homosexual. Others seem to pick up, adopt, or assimilate homosexual tendencies by association. They must have already had an inclination towards him. It infected them. Then there are those who were bored and needed a change. They wanted to try it and see if they liked it. Sometimes, due to the “force” of circumstances, men in prison, children’s homes and/or monasteries may resort to homosexual activities. Later, as soon as possible, some of them return to heterosexual forms, while others continue to enjoy “the best of both worlds” as bisexuals. Are “bestiality is best” fans born that way? Or are incestuous relationships something innate? Do we have a chemical predisposition for incest? Are we prepared for such a fall from birth? Would that justify or excuse us? Is promiscuity simply a part of man’s “animal instincts”? Is the challenge of the hunt a primitive holdover from the “days of the hunt”? Actually, ALL of the above are just DISTRACTIONS! It’s not about who or what we feel most comfortable with, prefer, like or are attracted to; those are just attempts to circumvent the real problem!

God is not only the Creator, but the Sustainer of the entire universe. As such, His Majesty’s Government, based in the highest heaven, has issued (at Mount Sinai) various health rules and regulations (Malachi 4:4). The Creator-King has predetermined, in his infinite wisdom, what “foods and medicines” are safe for our consumption.

If we take into account the reason for our mortal existence, the SUPREME PURPOSE of our human being; to establish contact with our Higher-Self and develop a relationship with Him, then we will know and understand that everything God does is for our benefit. God wants to help us, not hinder us. He enjoys encouraging us to reach our goals and develop our potential (Luke 12:31-32). The Father knows best: what He has in store for us is beyond our wildest dreams (Ephesians 3:20; 1 Corinthians 2:9)!

The high cost of living

Whoever chooses to be a full member of the homosexual community is entitled to all its privileges and persecutions; but first you must COUNT THE COST to see if it is too high a price for you to pay, as Christians are told to do (Luke 14:28).

If someone decides to engage in illicit sex or get involved in “foreign affairs,” they are living a lie if they think God would approve of their inappropriate behavior, and they are compounding their problems if they lead others astray by attempting to approve of such blatant sin (Rom. 1:32 ). Do what you want, but do not misrepresent God and his clear biblical teachings. Don’t try to put words in his mouth or censor what he actually said (Rev. 22:18-19).

Yes, GOD IS LOVE! That is why He hates certain practices with a passion. He frowns upon a dishonest life of theft, an unfaithful habit of “cheating” on our spouse, a disrespectful attitude towards our parents or people in authority, religious holidays that are hollow and do not hallow His name, senseless murder and slander, idolatrous distractions that come between us and God, endless trivial pursuit and concern for ourselves and others, instead of putting God first. God loves us and wants us to love him back, but he sees love as more than a four-letter word: love is an attitude exemplified by actions, words backed up by deeds (James 2:26). That is why Jesus said that if we really loved him, we would show it and not just say it (John 14:15).

safe sex

Since God is love, and the Father knows best, He wants us to practice safe sex. Safe sex that is good and healthy, clean and pure, and is only available within a marriage where both spouses keep their vows and honor their commitments (Hebrews 13:4). Sexual intimacy, cuddling, and intercourse belong in the bedroom (of those united by the Bible), and must involve the union of minds and bodies (Gen. 2:24). Married couples are challenged to be compatible in every sense of the word. A marriage certificate doesn’t have to be “just a piece of paper” or become another broken record! God acknowledges the fact that marriage is not for everyone (Matt. 19:11), but expresses his will that singles remain celibate (1 Thess. 4:3).

God only promises to bless those foods (or relationships) that are sanctioned by His Word (1 Timothy 4:4-5). He is not sure of himself or his ways, he is not fickle or foolish, and his Word is trustworthy, trustworthy and not subject to change. This hasn’t caused the scripts to be overly popular at times, but they refuse to succumb to peer pressure and stay true to themselves. They are not what you need to change anyway. We make. God has not lowered his moral standards or compromised with his food laws, but he offers to help us rise to his Divine Plane. Christ can cleanse us from our unclean lives (Acts 10:15, 28), because God has not called us to stay in Egypt but to go to the Promised Land. Don’t just stand there, move! And leave behind your excess baggage (sin).

kosher food

Although God created us with a hunger drive, an appetite, he does not want us to become gluttonous pigs. He doesn’t want us to act like dogs in heat either (1 Corinthians 6:13). God has also shown us that just because various foods have been mislabeled as “delicacies,” we don’t have to put them in our mouths (Lev. 11). We are expected to be mature, not to act like children. God warns us to guard the doors of our mind, not expose ourselves to a fall, and discern what we digest (Ephesians 4:27; Hebrews 5:14). We are instructed to scrutinize our food to think and remember “we are what we eat” and “we become what we think” (Prov. 23:7). God wants us to not only watch what we put in our mouths, but also what we allow to enter our minds (Philippians 4:8). For a free list of “government approved” think tanks; what is clean and unclean, pure and unclean, kosher and non-kosher – check out Ga. 5:19-23; Ephesians. 5:11 and Philip. 1:11.

We are not supposed to continue being raw material. God has given us a brain to refine ourselves and keep our base “instincts” in check (2 Peter 2:12). The Holy Spirit offers us the help we need to do this work (John 1:12). We must refuse to be reduced to an animal level, simply sensual creatures, choosing instead a higher level of life. The lack of “if it feels good, do it” and “if it looks good, eat it” mentality should be considered an insult to those who strive for God’s higher intelligence.

Regardless of why you’re gay, bisexual, or “trysexual” (you’ll try anything once), whether you’ve had a choice about it or not, you have a choice to exercise proper self-control. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BE A SLAVE OF YOUR SENSES (John 8:34), nor allow sexual temptations to dictate senseless reactions (Gen. 19:4-11). You can resist suggestions and reject impulses (2 Corinthians 10:5). Every fleeting thought, random idea, or wayward notion doesn’t have to take root and grow if you don’t give it fertile ground (James 1:13-15). You can consider its origin and nip it in the bud. A “NO TRESPASSING!” You can develop a frame of mind to defend yourself against intruders. Protection is possible. You can say NO! You can curb your appetite! YOU CAN CHANGE!
