Many messages are now written in English to make it harder for the MSM abroad to lie about the reason for the protest.
The MSM have basically two news-suppressing strategies: one is distorting the context, cherry-picking non-representative images, blowing details out of proportion, turning cause-and-effect relationships on their head, slandering movements and whipping up fear; the other is extending the good old mantle of silence. In this case, events in Brazil -- which are still ongoing and are very newsworthy, to say the least -- are for the most part absent from news media around the world. Not only would it be a challenge to report on something like that while hiding those millions of people who took to the streets in green and yellow, but it would remind people in other countries that they have the power to end the morona tyranny.

Yesss, dear pov !

Isn't it funny? Some computer geeks seem to be getting it! :P (although they really don't).

Well - even Johannes Kepler once got it right - many centuries ago! (yet he ultimately discarded his very best drawing of Mars's 16-year path!).

Here's the path he once plotted for Mars between 1580 and 1596 (at right)
...compared to how the Tychosium shows Mars's path for that same time period (at left) :

Check it out for yourselves, folks - by perusing the Tychosium! (Remember to activate the "trace" function for Mars) : https://codepen.io/pholmq/full/XGPrPd

Be well.

Yes isn't it Sharpstuff! :-) And another ironic thing about this is how geocentrism is often protrayed as old collective solipsism. "Man believed himself to be the center of the universe but then realized it isn't so" And it is of course a confirmed fact today that the universe does not rotate around us. But that doesn't mean that the Earth orbits the Sun, since it is just as demonstrably false.

Update: A better article on Soliphism https://evolveconsciousness.org/solipsism/

I just read a headline about Alec Baldwin having killed someone from his own film crew. This reminded me of a trailer I saw the other day from the upcoming movie "The Comeback Trail." The comedic genre fits right in.
Honestly, how many more examples of theatrical scripts do people need to realize how intertwined Hollywood and the News are? Anyway, I searched for a news website that shows both of these topics at once. And I found several... Here is a screenshot from one of them:

That’s a terrific find dear animus! Yes the relationship between Hollywood and the news is again on full display. What a glorious day it will be when people understand this simple and powerful truth.

Yes this movie set drama is laughable and probably just ways to get attention on movies and to glorify actors. https://people.com/movies/terrifying-on-set-accidents/

WHY would a producer/director risk the health of a lead actor with all the CGI available today? A half decent CGI artist can make anyone look like anyone today.

And the "switched fake gun" is like something from an Agatha Christie novel. However this may have been an actual accident on a movie set involving a gun: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon-Erik_Hexum
