मोदी जी आप अशुभ मुहुर्त में भगवान राम मंदिर का शिलान्यास कर और कितने लोगों को अस्पताल भिजवाना चाहते हैं? योगी जी आप ही मोदी जी को समझाइए। आपके रहते हुए सनातन धर्म की सारी मर्यादाओं को क्यो तोड़ा जा रहा है? और आपकी क्या मजबूरी है जो आप यह सब होने दे रहे हैं?

ERAMN Plans Virtual Press Conference On International Women’s Day



In celebration of International Women’s Day 2021, ERA Minnesota ( will roll-out its legislative agenda and plan action for the final push to make the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) the 28th Amendment to the US Constitution and to add an ERA into the Minnesota Constitution, through a VIRTUAL PRESS CONFERENCE on Monday, March 8, 2021.

“Minnesota is way behind on adding an ERA into our state constitution: 26 states in the Union already have state ERA’s, but not us,” said Heather Allison, President of ERA Minnesota. “Valuing gender equality is a cornerstone to a thriving economy. You don’t drive a car on two wheels; why hamstring our economy by allowing major roadblocks of pay inequity, pregnancy discrimination and sexual violence to negatively impact half our state population?”

“The Equal Rights Amendment has now met all the constitutional requirements to become the 28th Amendment to the US Constitution,” said Betty Folliard, Founder of ERAMN. “We demand action on equality in America and equality is spelled: ERA”.

There will be a brief presentation, then a Q & A session for the press/media.

11 Good News Stories: Spidey Sense, Saving Grandma, ‘Vax-Unteers’



ACROSS AMERICA — Mike Justman’s Spidey sense told him his superhero costume was the prescription for pandemic doldrums.

“Kids were getting their birthdays canceled,” the New Berlin, Wisconsin, resident told Patch’s Karen Pilarski.

He’s been putting on his Spider-Man costume since March, and putting on a show worthy of Tom Holland, the leading man in “Spider-Man 3.” He even jumps atop a car in a signature Spider-Man move.

Justman’s Spidey adventures started in his neighborhood but have expanded across southeastern Wisconsin. And it’s not just kids who are enjoying the show. By Karen Pilarski for New Berlin Patch

Below are 10 more uplifting stories from Patch editors across America.
Putting Their Privilege To Work

Inspired by their parents to recognize their privilege and use it to make their community better, a group of Warren, New Jersey, 6-year-olds known collectively as the Kindness Crew are teaming with the local police union to help restaurants struggling to stay afloat in an industry hit hard by the pandemic. The effort raised more than $4,000 to offset the costs of a special effort to bring more customers in the door. Two of the girls’ mothers had been doing philanthropic work to set an example for their daughters, and when they realized the girls didn’t have an active stake in it, they challenged them to help move the project ahead by doing video interviews with the people they wanted to help.

Good Morning, Sunshine

Pandemic or not, folks around Buckingham Township in Pennsylvania weren’t going to let Bryan Rosica’s birthday pass without them making a big deal out of it. Neighbors and friends of the beloved elementary school teacher, who was recently diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, surprised him with a sunrise parade. “Bryan is full of life,” one of the organizers told Patch. “He is always positive, incredibly energetic, a very thoughtful individual. He just has an effervescent personality, the kind of individual who will do anything for anybody.” By Peter Blanchard for Doylestown Patch

The Uplift Of The Uplift

Inside the intensive care unit at St. Jude’s Medical Center in Anaheim, California, ventilators whoosh and hospital equipment beeps. This is the cadence of coronavirus, and it is the only sound in the ICU ward where Joseph Trejo, an otherwise healthy 53-year-old man until he contracted COVID-19, is in the battle of his life. Outside, a Mariachi band started strumming and raising their voices in song. Trejo’s wife of 38 years, Patty, had arranged for the musical tribute to lift his spirits — and her act ended up giving the ICU staff some much-needed joy. By Ashley Ludwig for Mission Viejo Patch

Stepping Up To The Plate

Pottstown, Pennsylvania, special education teacher Arden Moore will get a sign — an actual banner with her name — of how much she’s appreciated during the Philadelphia Phillies’ home opener on April 1. She has been teaching in-person classes since August — and, by the way, ongoing chemotherapy treatments didn’t stop her — and will be among 41 “Frontline Heroes” honored for, ahem, stepping up to the plate during the pandemic. By Marlene Lang for Pottstown Patch
The “Vax-Unteer” Squad

Snagging an appointment to get a coronavirus vaccination isn’t easy for anyone, as demand for the shots continues to exceed supply. And it’s especially tough for older folks introduced to technology late in life and not as comfortable at a computer as their children and grandchildren. Westfield, New Jersey, high school junior Taylor Addis recognized the problem many were having and organized her fellow “vax-unteers” to help. So far, at least 200 people in their area have asked the group for help, including one person who is 98. By Caren Lissner for Westfield Patch
Seeds Of Progress

Before AeroFarms moved into a former steel mill in Newark, New Jersey, the ailing, 75-year-old building was like many others in the city: full of promise but needing new life. Now, more than four years after AeroFarms planted the first seed at its global headquarters, new life has indeed arrived in the city’s Ironbound neighborhood — nearly 2 million pounds of it. That’s the amount of leafy greens that sprout every year at 212 Rome St., where an enormous, 70,000-square-foot facility houses the “largest indoor vertical farm in the world.” By Eric Kiefer for Newark Patch

Fox Anchor Suspended Over Tweet About Vaccines For Obese People



WASHINGTON, DC — Blake McCoy, a news anchor with a Fox affiliate in Washington, D.C., was suspended from his job over a tweet that criticized COVID-19 vaccine eligibility.

“I’m annoyed obese people of all ages get priority access before all essential workers,” McCoy, who works for WTTG, a local Fox affiliate, tweeted Tuesday. “When most stayed home, we went into work everyday last March, April, May and everyday since putting ourselves & loved ones at risk. Vaccinate all essential workers. Then obese.”

A Fox 5 spokesperson confirmed that McCoy had been suspended for the tweet. “Blake McCoy has been suspended from WTTG-Fox 5 pending further review,” a spokesperson told People.

McCoy issued an apology later on Tuesday, saying he deleted the tweet because it was “insensitive and offensive.”

“I truly regret my words and want to apologize,” McCoy tweeted.

On Thursday, D.C. residents ages 18 and up with specific medical conditions became eligible to reserve a vaccine appointment. Among the qualifying conditions is obesity.

The WTTG website says McCoy has served as co-anchor on Fox 5 News’ weekday news shows at 4 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m.
