For that reason, this guesthouse was built. The house was placed in a little distance from the entrance as the site is large. In between, an entrance approach which looks like a wooden bridge was set.Save this picture!© Yashunori ShimomuraThis is an image of from ordinary life to extraordinary one, from the real world to unrealistic one. Around the building, gravel was put, and its surroundings are left as they are, so that people can feel rich greenery close.

Nov. 30 — A second terrorist attack in the same week occurred in the United States on Nov. 27, just four days after masked racist terrorists shot at Black Lives Matter protesters in Minneapolis, wounding five African-American men. The victims were just outside the Fourth Precinct, where a continuous protest has been taking place since the killing of Jamar Clark, 24, by Minneapolis cops on Nov. 15. Jennifer MarkovskyRight-wing terrorists this time aimed their guns at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colo. The alleged “lone” gunman, armed with an AK-47, killed three people and wounded nine others in an over-five-hour standoff with police. The dead are Jennifer Markovsky, 36, a Hawaiian mother of two, who was accompanying a friend to the clinic; Ke’Arre Stewart, 29, an African-American father of two and an army veteran; and Garrett Swasey, 44, a white police officer at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs and also a father of two.Ke’Arre StewartAlthough one cop was among the dead and five were among the injured, the 57-year-old shooter, who eyewitnesses say carried out the deadly attack, surrendered to police and was taken into custody without incident. How could this be when the gunman carried out a deadly rampage, but unarmed Black youth are regularly gunned down by cops?Was he a terrorist from another country, like we’ve been warned about so often? Was he one of the migrants that the U.S. and other racist imperialist countries are turning away and warning us to be suspicious of? Certainly a “takedown” like that would be broadcast far and wide with vitriolic, racist commentary. Most likely, the alleged perpetrator would have been shot and killed.The terrorist in Colorado Springs was a white male, Robert Lewis Dear. Whether or not he acted alone is not the primary question. Dear, like others who espouse white supremacy and male supremacy, was given a green light to carry out his terror attack by the highest echelons of Wall Street and its political puppets. The unrelenting, unscientific, anti-woman campaign to defund and shut down Planned Parenthood, an unabashed abortion and health care provider to millions of low-income women and men, is what gave Dear the impetus to carry out this deadly rampage. (See “Stop the war on poor women,” Sept. 17, by Sue Davis and “Defend Planned Parenthood from right-wing attacks,” Oct. 9, by Kathy Durkin at workers.org.) Vicki Cowart, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, said in a statement that “eyewitnesses confirm that the man … was motivated by opposition to safe and legal abortion.”This right-wing ideological campaign is based on racism and sexism, two giant pillars of capitalism, and has given obvious encouragement to racist and fascist elements across the U.S. to plan and carry out domestic terrorist attacks. The capitalist-owned media, like the paid hypocrites and liars they are, save the words “terrorist” and “terrorism” for the oppressed, instead of the white men who carry out these atrocities. ‘Weapons of war,’ the new ‘normal’The ruling class, desperate to destroy growing unity among the working class under the leadership of the most oppressed, has even allowed the racist likes of multibillionaire Donald Trump to become a so-called “serious” contender for the Republican presidential nomination. Not because they think this bellicose racist can win, but because whipping up racism, sexism, ableism, anti-immigrant, anti-migrant, anti-lesbian-gay-bisexual-trans*-queer and every other kind of bigotry is exactly what the capitalist class needs at this moment in history. (Trans* is used with an asterisk to indicate the spectrum of all the different genders of people who do not conform to the either/or of male/female.)President Barack Obama issued a statement Nov. 28 on the Planned Parenthood attack, which stated in part: “This is not normal. We can’t let it become normal. If we truly care about this — if we’re going to offer up our thoughts and prayers again, for [who] knows how many times, with a truly clean conscience — then we have to do something about the easy accessibility of weapons of war on our streets to people who have no business wielding them.”Colorado Springs is a reactionary military town, home of the U.S. Air Force Academy and command center for North American Aerospace Defense (NORAD), the Pentagon’s missile operations center. Besides Fort Carson, Peterson and Shriever Air Force bases and high-level operations centers are located there. The Pentagon trains some of its deadliest killers in Colorado Springs. The town is also the U.S. epicenter for reactionary evangelical Christians, who totally oppose abortion rights, many types of birth control and general rights for women. So many national evangelical groups are headquartered there that Colorado Springs has earned the nickname America’s Evangelical Vatican.It should be no surprise that “weapons of war” — firearms and other deadly devices — are “normal” in U.S. “civilian” capitalist society. First and foremost they are utilized by the capitalist state — the military, the police and the military-industrial-prison complex. An anti-gun campaign is not the answer to right-wing attacks. Especially now, the oppressed have the right to arm themselves, the right to self-defense, just like abortion providers who don bullet-proof vests, carry guns and take whatever measures they deem necessary to protect their patients, staff and themselves.The terrorism aimed at Black Lives Matter and Planned Parenthood is meant to strike fear into the heart of activists and to diminish the fighting spirit of those on the front lines against police killings and terror and against attacks on women’s right to reproductive justice. It is meant to tell activists fighting for a union and $15 minimum wage that they could be next. But so far, this strategy has failed. Led by youth and women of color, the Black Lives Matter and other movements show no signs of backing down. It is the police, the military and their racist supporters who must put down their weapons against the oppressed here and worldwide.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Moderator Dr. Scott Langston, a religion instructor, read the names of the 11 people who died in the shooting and then called for a moment of silence.Memorials were set up outside the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh after the attack. – Photo courtesy of Darrell SappThe Pittsburgh shooting was not the only attack on Jews present on the minds of the Jewish community. Nov. 9 was the 80th anniversary of Kristallnacht– “the Night of Broken Glass” — the night on which thousands of Jewish businesses, schools and homes, as well as hundreds of synagogues were destroyed or vandalized. In addition, about 30,000 Jewish men were sent to concentration camps.The panel included Viola Clark, a first-year student and president of TCU Hillel, Bob Goldberg, the executive director of the Jewish Federation of Fort Worth & Tarrant County, and Heath Einstein, the director of admissions.When asked about the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue, both Clark and Einstein said they realized they and their families could have been the victims. Einstein talked about “Jewish geography,” the idea that an event that affects an individual also impacts the entire Jewish community. First-year ballet major Janet Nguyen said she was surprised that violence and anti-Semitism are still common even in the U.S., a developed country that advocates for diversity.The panel members also gave their ideas about how anti-Semitism manifests itself in the United States in ways aside from violence, saying the internet and social media can be used both as tools to educate people and as vehicles for the spread of hateful speech. Goldberg said the climate in the country is one that allows for intolerance and people tend to reject any idea that is not their own. After sharing personal stories about times when they have experienced anti-Semitism, the discussion leaders provided the audience with strategies for being welcoming and tolerant. Clark said people should treat each other as members of the same family and not be afraid to ask questions because people like her are willing to answer those questions. Goldberg and Einstein talked about the importance of calling out hatred and ignorance. “You have to speak up,” Einstein said. “You’re obligated to speak up.” Welcome TCU Class of 2025

Top Stories”Used His Muscle Power, Political Clout To Act As A Kingpin”: Delhi Court Denies Bail To Tahir Hussain In Delhi Riots Cases Nupur Thapliyal15 May 2021 7:31 AMShare This – xObserving that it is prima facie apparent that Tahir Hussain used his muscle power and political clout to act as a kingpin in planning, instigating and fanning the flames of communal conflagration, a Delhi Court on Saturday dismissed his bail applications in two Delhi Riots cases.Additional Sessions Judge Vinod Yadav denied the bail to Hussain in two FIRs in relation to information received by Sushrat Trauma Centre in relation to gunshot injuries sustained by Pramod and Prince Bansal.”The spread of riots on such a big scale in such a short time is not possible without a premeditated conspiracy. So, now when the applicant found himself up against the wall, he cannot pass on the buck by simply taking a plea that since he did not participate physically in the riots, so he has no role to play in the riots. It is prima facie apparent that the applicant abused his muscle power and political clout to foment communal violence in the area.” The Court observed while denying bail to Hussain.Apart from arguing that Hussain should be granted bail on the ground of parity in both the FIRs, Hussain vehemently denied the allegations levelled against him and argued before the Court that he belonged to the “Aam Aadmi Party” and is a “victim of circumstances” as he had been caught up in a “political cross-fire” and the allegations levelled against him are “nothing but a political blame game to malign his image”.It was also argued that there was no cogent and legal evidence to connect him with the incident alleged in the matter and that there is no video footage evidence on record to show that he had participated in the riots or caused damage to any property.Arguing that since the investigation was complete and chargesheet was filed in the matter, Hussain also sought bail on the ground that there is no other person in the family besides him to take care of his wife, two minor school going children, a college going son and an elderly mother.On the other hand, Special Public Prosecutor vehemently denied the grant of regular bail in both the cases by arguing that the riots were part of large scale conspiracy hatched at various levels all over Delhi in the aftermath of enactment of Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 and the same did not take place spontaneously.It was also argued that the riots were planned before the visit of US President Donald J. Trump to India, as “one group of particular community was aware of the fact that police system would be busy in handling arrangements for Trump’s visit to Ahmedabad in Gujarat on 24.02.2020 and 25.02.2020 and hence, the very timing of riots just prior to the visit of US President Donald J. Trump to India points towards a very deep-rooted conspiracy behind the entire scenario.”Hearing the aforesaid submissions, the Court vide a common order observed thus:”It is prima facie apparent that the “riotous mob” armed with “lethal weapons” had engaged in vandalism, looting and torching of public and private properties and their main objective was to cause maximum damage to the lives and properties of persons belonging to other community. Therefore, at this stage it cannot be said with certainty that the applicant did not have a common object with the other persons of unlawful assembly.”Furthermore the Court did not found merits in the argument put forth by Hussain that he has been been falsely implicated in the matter or that there is no legally sustainable evidence available against him. “In my considered opinion, the statements of witnesses can be said to be delayed when the witnesses are known to the police and yet police do not record their statements; whereas, in a case of rioting, police hardly has any idea as to who were the witnesses.” The Court observed at the outset.Furthermore, the Court observed:”They were in a position to mobilise the local persons from a particular community to come up in arms against the persons of other community and law enforcement agencies to create havoc. The apparent object of execution of such smaller conspiracy(ies) was to make the presence of a particular community felt, to create a rein of terror and to destabilize the law and order position, so that the Central Government could be made to succumb to their demands.”Observing that Hussain misused his official position and political clout to instigate the rioters of his community to wreak havoc on the members of other community, the Court denied him the grant of bail.”The Delhi riots 2020 are a gaping wound in the conscience of a nation aspiring to be a major global power. The allegations against the applicant are extremely grave in nature. Even if there were no direct acts of violence attributable to the applicant, he cannot shy away from his liability under the provisions of the sections invoked against him, particularly on account of the fact that his house/building became the hub/centre point for the rioters and rabble-rousers to unleash the worst communal riots since partition in Delhi. The spread of riots on such a big scale in such a short time is not possible without a premeditated conspiracy.” The Court observed.Click Here To Read OrderTagsDelhi Court Delhi-riots Tahir Hussain Delhi Court Denies Bail ASJ Vinod Yadav Next Story

When the same weather or climate simulation is run on different high-performance computing (HPC) platforms, model outputs may not be identical for a given initial condition. While the role of HPC platforms in delivering better climate projections is to some extent discussed in the literature, attention is mainly focused on scalability and performance rather than on the impact of machine-dependent processes on the numerical solution.Here we investigate the behaviour of the Preindustrial (PI) simulation prepared by the UK Met Office for the forthcoming CMIP6 (Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 6) under different computing environments.Discrepancies between the means of key climate variables were analysed at different timescales, from decadal to centennial. We found that for the two simulations to be statistically indistinguishable, a 200-year averaging period must be used for the analysis of the results. Thus, constant-forcing climate simulations using the HadGEM3-GC3.1 model are reproducible on different HPC platforms provided that a sufficiently long duration of simulation is used.In regions where El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) teleconnection patterns were detected, we found large sea surface temperature and sea ice concentration differences on centennial timescales. This indicates that a 100-year constant-forcing climate simulation may not be long enough to adequately capture the internal variability of the HadGEM3-GC3.1 model, despite this being the minimum simulation length recommended by CMIP6 protocols for many MIP (Model Intercomparison Project) experiments.On the basis of our findings, we recommend a minimum simulation length of 200 years whenever possible.
