MY GRAND FOTHER TEACH ME

first_img0 I belong to rural area. One day, when I was very young, I came to the city with my grandfather. I saw there a very big building named Laxmi Old-age Home. I asked my grandfather what is old-age home ? Then he told me the importance of a mother. What he told me I am sharing with you.Mother is a word that is the perfect word in itself. Mother is the root cause of our existence. Mother is a partner of God in our birth. We have neither seen God nor touched, but if we find God then maybe it will be like a mother. When a child is born then he does not know anything except crying. Mother teaches everything slowly. When a mother conceives, she not only brings a new creature into existence, but she also sacrifices her body.In the womb, the child takes blood, flesh, thoughts and behaviour from the mother. When a woman is pregnant, she has to suffer many kinds of sufferings, no man can bear it. Still, the mother laughs in bringing new creatures into existence. All creatures in the world are born from a mother’s womb. It is not possible to be born without any mother. When an organism is born, it knows nothing except crying. The mother takes care of every need of her newborn. The child does not say what he wants but mother understands. All hunger, thirst, discomfort are understood immediately.Mama’s paramount importance was told. It is said in our scriptures that mother is the first teacher, serving the mother is rewarded for serving all the Gods.Anyone in the world can give your sacrifice for your smile, then she is just a mother.There is only one mother in the world who forgives all your crimes.There is a mother in the world who sacrificed her life for your happiness.Today the old age homes in the cities have become very special. Old age is a stigma in our civilization. The person who gave colour and form, gave life, behavior, which mother gave you without regard to the cold, heat, you have left her in an old age home.How can you give up those who gave you milk, who kept you on the lap, you kept them in the old age home.There is no need to go to any temple, who has bowed down at the feet of his mother. Our God is born to enjoy the mother’s lap in Gokul. There is no holy place in the world than the mother’s lap. There is no happiness other than the gentle touch of the mother’s hands. There is no education more than mother’s teachings.There is no teacher more than a mother Mother gives us a lot and does not want anything in return. Whose dua is only for us.People who are fortunate are people who have mothers and who have found mother’s love.Jai Hind Jai Jai Jai Shri Ram |last_img read more

2 alleged shooting threats at separate Florida schools end in arrests on same day

first_imgiStock(TAMPA, Fla.) — Two Florida students in separate parts of the state were arrested Thursday after they allegedly posted school shooting threats online.In Broward County — the same district as the 2018 Parkland school shooting where 17 were killed — an officer said he learned Wednesday night from the school board about a school shooting threat posted on the messaging app Discord.According to the Broward County police report, the threat said, “I want to shoot up a school. This is a genuine feeling. I want people to suffer. … I wish to see those I haven’t shot shake in fear and scream and cry at such a heinous act. Then see the shock on their faces once I’ve shot them too.”A Nova High School student was arrested Thursday and charged with false report of bomb or explosion, according to the police report.The high schooler allegedly admitted to police that he wrote the post and shared it on the app, the report said.The student allegedly told officers “he did not have any intent in following through with the threat, but that he was expressing how he felt emotionally” and “wanted people to feel the pain he felt,” according to the report.Meanwhile, near Tampa, a 12-year-old girl was arrested Thursday for allegedly making a school shooting threat on Snapchat.At about 11:30 a.m. Thursday, a student at Barrington Middle School told a school resource deputy about a threatening Snapchat post, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s OfficeDeputies learned the threat was posted by a Burns Middle School 7th grader, the sheriff’s office said.According to authorities, the post said: “Dear bms students I will be shooting that skool [sic] up September 3 2019 be ready say your goodbyes to you’re [sic] family.”The 12-year-old allegedly admitted to sending and later intentionally deleting the Snapchat and is facing a felony charge of making a written threat to kill, do bodily injury or conduct mass shooting or act of terrorism, authorities said.“The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office takes all school threats, verbal, written or posted to social media, very seriously,” Sheriff Chad Chronister said in a statement. “We have a zero-tolerance policy.

West Midlands to get biggest Boxing Day bus service outside London

first_imgShoppers, sports fans and party-goers across the West Midlands can take advantage of the biggest Boxing Day bus service outside of London this year.A total of 158 routes will be running on 26 December thanks to subsidy from Transport for West Midlands (TfWM), part of the West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA).The region’s largest bus operator National Express West Midlands will be running a near-Sunday daytime schedule and Diamond Bus will be laying on 14 key routes.Cllr Roger Lawrence, the WMCA’s lead member for transport, says: “Before 2002 there were no Boxing Day bus services until we began subsidising them and since then passenger numbers have rocketed.“That demand means we now have a very comprehensive service so people heading to the Boxing Day sales and other attractions have a real alternative to the car.With no trains running on Boxing Day, the extensive bus and tram timetable will help shop workers get to and from work and thousands of football fans going to the West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City and Walsall home matches.Full details at www.networkwestmidlands.com/campaigns/christmas-2017/last_img read more

Guidance issued for community transport during virus pandemic

first_imgCTA issues document for members while the Senior Traffic Commissioner also chimes inThe Community Transport Association (CTA) has issued guidance to its members relating to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. All the material is available on CTA’s website. It says that while the latest government guidance is that only essential public transport trips should be undertaken, community transport organisations (CTOs) are advised to “use their judgment to decide whether services go ahead in light of this.” Simple stepsFor those CTOs that are changing their focus to providing support to self-isolating passengers, for example by the provision of shopping deliveries, CTA will shortly release guidance on those activities. CTA acknowledges that the government’s edict to work at home where possible will be difficult for many CTOs. To that end, it recommends that clear information and handwashing facilities are provided, along with a frequent cleaning regime. For vehicle cleaning, CTA recommends that CTOs consider whether they should increase the frequency or upgrade their existing provision. It notes that the use of too much water could lead to damp fabrics acting as a collection point for germs. The guidance for CTA members will be updated on a regular basis. Additionally, CTA wants to hear from any of its members if they see absences of staff or volunteers start to affect service provision, or if the closure of any traffic generators affect their ability to deliver on contractual obligations that may affect funding. Senior TC’s wordsSeparately, an emergency statutory document has been issued by Senior Traffic Commissioner (STC) Richard Turfitt. It outlines how TCs will respond if there is exceptional demand to provide services through community transport arrangements, such as the transfer of patients. Mr Turfitt says that TCs may issue Section 19 or Section 22 permits for a period designed to cover the coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak only based on a declaration from a person or officer of the corporate body to the effect that it satisfies those criteria for the grant of a permit or permits.last_img read more

15 July General Affairs Council

first_imgFOREIGN ministers appointed a new EU administrator for the Bosnian city of Mostar. Sir Martin Garrod will replace Ricard Pérez Casado on 22 July to continue the Union’s efforts to broker peaceful cooperation between the city’s Muslim and Croat populations. Member states had agreed to extend the EU administration of the city from June until the end of the year so that efforts to repatriate refugees and rebuild the region’s economy could continue. Casado, who took the job two months ago, said he would no longer be available to serve. Last month, Casado organised elections in Mostar which were part of the plan to unify the city, but the results provoked fears instead that divisions in Bosnia would be cemented forever.THE Union will hit back if Washington bars European businessmen from entering the US and sues EU firms for dealing in Cuba. Foreign ministers agreed on a series of possible retaliatory measures, including compiling a ‘watch list’ of US companies that take legal action against Union firms; legislation in European courts to counter-sue those US firms; restricting entry visas for Americans coming into Europe; and taking the US to a dispute settlement panel at the World Trade Organisation.MINISTERS made progress in negotiations with Switzerland designed to allow EU citizens and goods to move freely in the country. Talks have been dragging on since 1994 in seven sectors, including rights for EU citizens to work in Switzerland, air and land transport, research cooperation, access for farm goods and public procurement. Both sides hope for a deal by the end of this year. THE long-running feud over regional development funding for North Africa and the Middle East was unblocked when Greece agreed to lift its veto of the MEDA aid package for a dozen Mediterranean nations. The EU wants to link the 12 to the Union by creating a zone of free trade and investment. Athens had blocked the 3.4-billion-ecu regional funding package because it included money for Turkey. Greece fears Turkey’s territorial ambitions on its islands in the Aegean, and has demanded EU solidarity. The lifting of the veto was a real breakthrough, but Greek Foreign Minister Theodoros Pangalos warned that Athens would be watching Ankara’s every move and would reserve the right to bar Turkey from regional plans.MINISTERS criticised Burma’s government for suppressing democracy movements there, but did not agree to Danish demands for sanctions against Rangoon. The Danish honorary consul in Rangoon, James Leander Nichols, died on 22 June. Arrested in April, he was sentenced to three years in prison for allegedly supporting democracy activists. EU governments said they did not want to impose sanctions on Burma without UN backing.last_img read more

Grateful Dead Debut Infamous ‘Wall Of Sound’ At Cow Palace, On This Day In 1974 [Listen]

first_imgOf all the rock and roll tales and infamous stories from life on the road over the years for which the Grateful Dead is remembered, the band’s monstrous “Wall of Sound” P.A. system used in 1974 is arguably the best. The behemoth live P.A. system which originated out of the genius mind of the Dead’s former sound tech and LSD supplier Owsley “The Bear” Stanley, would cost the band a fortune in transportation and upkeep during its brief run in 1974.It was on this day, March 23rd, in 1974, when the Dead officially unveiled the Wall of Sound for their hometown fans during a show at the Cow Palace just south of San Francisco, and the touring industry hasn’t been the same ever since.Related: Grateful Dead Brings Wall Of Sound To Oakland Coliseum Stadium On This Day In 1974 [Listen]In a recent interview with industry publication Pollstar earlier this year, the band’s longtime live sound engineer Dan Healy talked about the impact which the Wall of Sound had on the touring side of the industry at large.“The Wall of Sound was a turning point in the entire world of sound reinforcement,” Healy admitted. “By end of the ’60s, myself and others like me had hot-rodded it and milked every nuance out of [existing P.A. systems] … We had to move to a whole new concept, scrap everything and start over. That was the purpose of the Wall of Sound. And while it in itself wasn’t that successful, the endeavor, the goal of it was completely successful: completely rethinking and revamping the entire approach to sound reinforcement.”The band’s first-ever public use of the Wall of Sound at the Cow Palace on 3/23/74 could be considered an all-timer for fans of the “Primal Dead” era of 1965-1974. The two-set show was filled with hits from the Dead’s live catalog starting with a lively “U.S. Blues” and continued with “Brown Eyed Women”, “Mexicali Blues”, “Tennessee Jed”, “Scarlet Begonias”, “Deal”, “China Cat Sunflower” > “I Know You Rider”, and the entire “Weather Report Suite” with “Let It Grow” included.The second half of the show was equally as loaded in terms of Deadhead fan favorites, as the band returned to the stage to keep the show rocking with performances of “Playing In The Band”, “Uncle John’s Band”, “Morning Dew”, Ship Of Fools”, “Me And My Uncle”, “Bertha”, and “Sugar Magnolia”.Relive the band’s performance below and listen to the Wall of Sound in all its glory below.Grateful Dead – Cow Palace – 3/23/74[Audio: Matthew Vernon]last_img read more

Grateful Dead Deliver First (And Only) “Passenger” Encore At Shrine Auditorium, On This Day In 1978 [Audio]

first_imgThe year 1978 was quite a memorable one for the Grateful Dead. The band had returned to touring just two years prior in 1976 and were firing on all cylinders by the time 1977 came to an end, having played some sublime shows throughout the year—notably their East Coast spring run.By the end of 1978, the Dead would have made their debut at Red Rocks Amphitheater in August and even made history by traveling to Egypt for a trio of shows alongside the Great Pyramid in mid-September. In January 1978, however, the Dead were just getting the year started with a month-long run of shows along the West Coast throughout January, which included a two-night run at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on January 10th—11th. For their second night at the Shine, 43 years ago tonight, the Dead sent their L.A. fans home happy with the first-ever (and last-ever) performance of “Passenger” as the encore closer.As music journalist and Good Ol’ Grateful Deadcast co-host Jesse Jarnow notes, Jerry Garcia‘s voice was not in good form for the second night in a row due to laryngitis, so their performances of “Dire Wolf”, “They Love Each Other”, and “Brown Eyed Women” wouldn’t be considered the best of that era, but still entertaining nonetheless. It’s worth noting that fans in the audience were treated to a second set “St. Stephen” before the Dead closed the show with “Passenger”, making for a nice surprise to close their two-night stay in Los Angeles.Relive the Dead’s show at the Shrine Auditorium performed on this day in 1978 via the audio player below.Grateful Dead – Shrine Auditorium – Los Angeles, CA 1/11/78[Audio: Matthew Vernon]last_img read more
