I've wanted to write this [THREAD] for a long time.
After mentioning it to @mountainherder and @pptsapper , I can't back down. This is the story a #woman, a #soldier, a #hero.
I would like to take the time to tell you about the life of an unlikely and forgotten hero.
A mixed race, #Muslim woman who took on the most dangerous job of #WW2 to defend a certain idea of freedom. Noor-un-Nissa Inayat Khan.
But before I tell you about her, I need to tell you about her father because I do think that his life had a part in the courageous choices that his daughter would make.

As #espionage & #Eurovision coincide, here's #Albania the 1st finalist in this #history thread.
(Also for my #Australia readers seeking relief from #ausvotes as you start your Saturday, it's impressive you convinced them your continent counts 😎)
Next: #Азербайджан #Евровизија
For #Eurovision #Азербайджан and #Spying studies, here's an article from @warisboring about Azeri #aviation being well-placed to use my #Soviet favourite (Foxbat) to work #intelligence against my #USAF (Blackbird).

Next up for #Eurovision finalists with an #espionage twist is #Denmark, whose #Spying #Police (PET) scored a serious scoop in turning Colonel Oleg Gordievsky, the #Russian rezident (lead KGB controller), which later inspired actual #JamesBond plot points:

Thread: Another overview amazing #Muslim *female* achievement.

Did you know the first university in the world was built by a Muslim woman approx 1200 years ago?

This is the story of Fatima Al-Fihiri (800–880 CE). #BadassWoman #twitterstorians

1/15
2. Daughter of a wealthy businessman, the family moved from Tunisia to Fez, Morocco during the rule of King Idriss II. When both her husband and father died, Fatima and her sister inherited a fortune.

They chose to spend their inheritance on building educational institutions.
3. In 859, Fatima built the Al-Qayrawan #Mosque, decorated in the Andalusian style with Kufic calligraphy (early style) engraved throughout. At 3,000 sq ft, it can fit 22,000 people.

She stacked it with Islamic works (Qur’ans, #Hadith collections, etc).

This year: 200th #anniversary of the #publication of #Goethe's great work of #art "#WestöstlicherDivan".#Heisenberg memorized #love-#poems from the book while working on #QuantumMechanics in #Heligoland.
#Schubert it to #music:
The #poem sung by #ElisabethSchwarzkopf is on p. 166 of the 1819 edition and reproduced below, side-by-side with the 1914 translation by #Irish critic and #poet Edward Dowden (1843-1913).The translation is close, but NOT accurate (as Dowden tries to recreate rhyme and rhythm).

Remark. The unclear phrase 'zu jemandes Herzen sprechen' was
allegedly utilized by #Heidegger in at least one letter sent to
#HannahArendt in 1925: cf. lisa.gerda-henkel-stiftung.de/ich_muss_heute….

#BlackHistoryMonth is like a breadcrumb, to follow our #Clues, that as another proverb hashtag called #AmericanDOS is used, leading more #ISRAELITES to #Awake from #Christianity paganism and sorcery. #Religion has never been our friend. #WakeUp 911. #REPENT
@0cd8bef6f7af48f @MistressCnLA Understanding: #Hosea 4:6. #Christianity never told us the #Messiah whom is called #Jesus is #blackface as in naturally #Dark. Never told us that #Moses is #Dark. #Job, #Abraham #Isaac and #JACOB all are #BlackLikeUs.

Today is the 145th #birthday of great #Austrian poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1874-1929). He wrote both brilliant poetry and prose. He was a #monarchist and staunch supporter of the legendary Austro-Hungarian Empire; the outcome of #WWI was a blow to him.
..
..The poem of Hofmannsthal's reproduced below is one of his both earliest and most famous. It was first published in Dec. 1892 in Vol. 2 of #StefanGeorge's journal when Hofmannsthal was 18 years old, under a #pseudonym(which allowed him to hide his tender age).
I'll translate..
.. the poem (in #prose, without any attempt at recreating #rhyme or #rhythm).
There is a lyrical #adaptation of the poem, published while von Hofmannsthal still alive, in

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.

@UKAutoharps The more I look at this, the more I am convinced I was right. This is a piece for an Autoharp Quartet. 3 diatonic, 1 Chromatic. Take a look. Beethoven wrote very straight-ahead music. Easily adaptable. #AltGovDaily #AltGov #Indivisible #SVRAV #Jazz #Music
@UKAutoharps 3rd Movement of #3 - This is a piece for an Autoharp Quartet. 3 diatonic, 1 Chromatic. Beethoven wrote very straight-ahead music. Easily adaptable. A Good Arranger could easily do this. #AltGovDaily #AltGov #Indivisible #SVRAV #Jazz #Music
