MDO 212a, 212b and 212c. EULER AND THE NYMPH

She looked like the moon half-hidden in light clouds­ As if breeze-borne-like snow
whirled in the streaming wind.
GIVING CO2 A LINE LIKE MOLECULAR STRUCTURE
as she wandered on the hillside. How dare you continue to look away
and come here saying that you're doing enough. THIS IS THE YEAR 2020
NOBODY WANTS YOUR STRANGE GLITTER
Leaning on rainbows
The Luo River Spirit was stirred and moved restlessly,

Nobody wanted your dance,
Nobody wanted your strange glitter . . .

MDO 151, 139. annd 141. 100 YEARS

Celebrated tanka poet rode the tumult of his times as he transformed from provincial romantic to national firebrand.

Should society be open to ideas on the basis of their true merit, creating a fluid situation that leads to the betterment of all classes? Or should the body polity be unified in thought and action behind one ethnic, religious or ideological idea, an idea that presumably makes the nation “stronger” and more successful at engaging in conflicts with other countries?

MDO 214. CO2 IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT

I followed with the greatest curiosity NOBODY WANTS YOUR DANCE crowds who carried in procession CO2 IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT
an infinite number of idols THIS IS THE YEAR 2020 of the god Ganesh. NOBODY WANTS YOUR STRANGE GLITTER
Each little quarter of the town, SHE SURPASSED THE FRAGRANT BEAUTY each family with its adherents, THIS IS THE TIME OF DARK ORCHIDS
each little street corner I may almost say, TREADING WATER organises a procession of its own, OF DARK ORCHIDS
and the poorest may be seen FOR STEALING DREAMS carrying on a simple plank DANCING THE DARK TURMOIL
their little idol of papier mâché... SO PUT THE CARBON IN THE MIDDLE A crowd, more or less numerous, THIS IS A MOMENT IN HISTORY
accompanies the idol, LOOKING FOR SOMETHING TO GIVE clapping hands and raising cries of joy, AND SET THE OXYGEN EITHER SIDE OF THAT!
while a little orchestra FOR DARK TURMOIL generally precedes the idol. Bombay Gazette (1886)

MDO 98a, b and c. LORD AYYAPPAN

Two women defied a centuries-old ban on entering a Hindu temple in the Indian state of Kerala on Wednesday, sparking rowdy protests and calls for a strike by conservative Hindu groups outraged by their visit. Police fired teargas and used water cannons to disperse a large crowd of protesters in the state capital of Thiruvananthapuram, television news channels showed. There were protests in several other cities in the state, media reported. India’s Supreme Court in September ordered the authorities to lift the ban on women or girls of menstruating age from entering the Sabarimala temple, which draws millions of worshippers a year. But the temple refused to abide by the court ruling and subsequent attempts by women to visit it had been blocked by thousands of devotees supporting the ban.

MDO 191, 194 and i92. C02 = 4 + 6(2) = 16

Glasgow 1840. 50 percent of children died under the age of 5 years. Many worked in mines where the pit bottoms were like common sewers filled with slush and water with an inclination of one in three and along these common sewers the women, half naked, crawled on hands and knees, harnessed like horses to their bogies of coal. Little boys aged four or five, sat all day in the darkness at the trap doors cold and shivering, begging for a candle end for light

John Kelly's Letter to his mother in Glasgow. 1839

Prime minister Scott Morrison has finally unveiled his climate policy and it is clearly designed to do two things. Placate the core rump of climate deniers and ideologues within his own party and the conservative media, and try to fool enough others that the Coalition is doing something to address a problem it barely admits exists, or is worth doing anything about.

I don’t want to get up. I don’t want to open my eyes. There is no hope. I can’t bear to see my family. My children, my husband. I don’t want to see them. I am embarrassed in front of my children because I feel guilty, because I did something horrible to my children. Where have I brought them?.

If you could see Mary now I am sure you would not know her, she is so stout again as she was, and has not had a days sicknefs since she came here, she many a time pities you when she thinks of you all confined in the Gallowgate up three stairs while we are under a fine climate, with plenty of parrots flying over us, and in as delightful a country as any one could wish to live in.
