Top 5 Moments From The Bad Batch Premier
How many of us were sitting at the edge of our seat in anticipation for the clock to strike midnight in Pacific Daylight Time (or whatever the equivalent time is in your particular timezone)? It was like waiting for midnight to hit on Christmas Eve so you can open your presents. For this year’s Star Wars Day, we were treated to the highly anticipated premier episode of Star Wars: The Bad Batch. The first episode definitely did not disappoint and promised a great series to come. Obviously, SPOILER ALERT!!!
Basic Facts About Astrology And Its Impact To The Modern Generation
Astrology is a branch of science that deals with celestial bodies. It is considered a pseudoscience though. It involves studying celestial cycles to give predictions or guidance to man or events relating to the earth. The Maya, Chinese, and Hindu observe celestial movements and from this, they forecast shifts in seasons and other earthly events.
Little Black Book, Inc.
She was dazzling on the mic. She was mystical on the stage, mixing out sounds and beats that were techno, ambient, Pop, and Rock. She mixed Aphex Twin with New Pop songs, and intertwined with Rap and Rock, she’d always give the patrons at the club something new to dance to.
The Spell Book
Back at school, when they taught me to spell, I learned nothing. Words were sounds and sounds became pieces of memory stored in a vacuum. The teachers tried as did the spelling bee. But nothing stuck or stung. The right letters and the left letters were the same. Vowels were consonants before consonants were vowels. I used to stare at the black board and memorise only by geometry; if they did all the teaching then I was the student. Kids these days have computers, half-eaten apples, but back then I had my apple and ate it too. How things have changed now, I wonder as I type into my MacBook Air - artificial intelligence, the cutting edge of science and modern technology inventing the wheel for the first time. But I am here. The nothingness in the vast dark matter of space, in between the letters and beneath the sounds as meaning. I was ‘bi-lingual’; teaching my mother tongue of the Dravidian family the Germanic lingo was like using a pick-up truck to deliver a village. Finally, my will was what gave way to the birth of a new era of sounds within me, for a wise man once said, sounds are sounds; we make up the meaning. So now, I deliver my mother tongue in Germanic as I stare at my old spelling books and replay the memories, giving them new meaning. I experience an explosion of psychotic cosmic chaos - a bunch of words that make no sense, yet I started to revel in the fantasy of this non-sense verse. A universe of zeros and ones.
Beware the Evil Eye When Writing
Before I begin this article, I would like to start by saying I am a fairly spiritual woman who believes in the Law of Attraction, manifestation, witchcraft (I don't practice this) and crystals, etc.
All aboard the bus to Proxima Centauri!
Let’s suppose that – 100 years hence, maybe – it is decided that Planet Earth is no longer inhabitable and the human race will have to decamp to another planet if it is to survive. After much debate it is concluded that Mars is far from suitable so the journey will have to take a lot longer – to the next nearest planet that could sustain human life, namely one that orbits Proxima Centauri B, some four light years away.

Happy Star Wars Day, everyone! Every year on Star Wars Day, I publish an article surrounding this series of films from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. I’ve published fun facts articles in the past, and last year, I wrote a review of season 7 of The Clone Wars.
'Star Wars: The Bad Batch' Episode 1 Breakdown
After weeks of waiting, The Bad Batch has finally arrived. Episode 1 was a whopping 70 minutes long, and despite giving us so much information, still seemed to leave me wanting more. With so much information, let's review:
I'm 500 years old today. So I guess I'll tell the story of how I came to live forever. I woke up at about 6AM on April, 04, 2020. The morning was dew & I remember feeling like the Corona Virus was putting on the perfect display of nature's segregation laws. Like an orchestra & its conductor. I miss those days. I decided within minutes of waking up that I would go for a walk, not to any destination, I would just go wherever my feet take me! This was always the best choice when travelling.

The huge center of a Chinese rocket dispatched into space a week ago is rushing wild above Earth and could make an accident arrival in the coming days. The chances are minute, however the Philadelphia territory is among the spots referenced as a potential accident site.
The Dreamer Chapter 8
Marcus woke up in the nurse's office with a pounding headache. “Your mom is on her way to pick you up,” Mrs. Patsy said. “When you walked in this time, you were pale and clammy.”
Civil Society as an Enabler of Sustainable Development
The past thirty years of the world’s history are filled with major transformations of political and socio-economic systems. Once totalitarian regimes that controlled and governed every aspect of human life fell off. The propulsion for change largely came from the civil society clamoring for an end to authoritarian rule. The lessons learned from the past have clearly demonstrated the ability of citizens in creating peaceful and impactful change that was oftentimes overlooked.
