The Air Force’s investigation into the fireballs was hilariously named Project Twinkle, but the Air Force didn’t find anything funny about the situation: A lot of these sightings were over the Los Alamos National Laboratory, aka Cheap Jerseys The Place Where We Were Working On Giant City Vaporizing Bombs (many of the sightings were from staff working there). The government decided whether it was aliens or the Russians or angels getting cast out of Heaven, they wanted to get to the bottom of that shit.Awesome. Most genius. For the pockets, I would add a zipper/button/strings to close the pocket so if I hook it up somewhere whatever is in my pocket won fall out. And animal ears to the hat. Definitely. And since there animal ears why no make the pocket gloves have animal paws too? Love your idea, it would make a wonderful gift.Looking at traditional back Cheap Jerseys betting combined with horse racing as an example, assuming that the elected race has say 10 runners, a random betting choice would award you a winning possibility of a miserable ONE out of TEN of having a successful win. On the other hand to give you a massive NINE out of TEN likelihood of winning you can bring into play lay betting to single out a loser, this would then offer you an admirable opportunity of making a lay betting profit!Julio Jones has scored four touchdowns for the Atlanta Falcons this seasonIn the six cheap nfl jerseys games so far, Ryan is averaging 346 yards a game, with 15 TDs and three picks. It would be easy for him to continually target Julio Jones, his physical speedy all pro wide receiver, but in spreading the ball out to a strong supporting cast of wide out Mohamed Sanu, tight ends Jacob Tamme and Austin Hooper and running back Tevin Coleman, it means defences have to spread themselves out more thinly, creating the match ups Ryan wants.”If you don’t fit into the mould, and the culture in the locker room, you won’t last,” Coy Wire, another Stanford alumnus who played in the NFL and is now a commentator for Fox Sports, said last week. “Sometimes, in a gladiator sport like football, intelligence can be perceived as being soft.”Public opinion has swung against Len Brown after news of his affair with the majority of people responding to an online poll calling for him to resign.But public relations experts say the sex scandal may not spell the end of his career and that his future will depend on how well he handles the issue and the level of support he receives from his familyThe public were quick to express their thoughts yesterday afternoon on Mr Brown’s two year affair cheap jerseys wholesale with Hong Kong born local government hopeful Bevan Chuang.LenBrown was trending on New Zealand Twitter last night and this morning, and many tweets condemned his actions.Among calls on his Facebook page for Mr Brown to resign, cheap jerseys Andrea Staniford said she was “absolutely appalled” and questioned his role in Ms Chuang’s political aspirations.Others supported Mr Brown, including Herald reader Nick Roughan who said: “The people of Auckland elected Len Brown to the office of mayor, not as his wife’s husband.

  1. Dear Manav,

    Just to let you know, I finally managed to get that one Meend where you vibrate your arm by the bicept and forearm to make the note “Shiver”. It adds much beauty. Thanks for the lesson. The more I practice, the better the instrument is sounding. And by the way, I left a post somewhere about the Swar Systems software. I downloaded the demo and it’s very cool, after my newly built esraj comes from India, I am planning to buy the software. Check it out, it is very nifty.

    Be well,


  2. I shall endeavour to follow the lesson on MEEND exercises.

    1. The video does not show the Bow hand.
    2. I do not get as clear a sound as it is in the videos..Please advise


  3. Hello ji,

    When you play normally, without meend – do you get a clear sound?

    If YES then it’s simply a matter of making your clear bowing ‘automatic’ so you can focus your attention on your playing hand.
    The only way to do that is to practice bowing slowly until it becomes easy for you to play 4-5 notes in 1 bow. Then try the meends again.

    If you play normally and don’t get a clear sound – try changing your bow.
    Buy a Cheap Violin or Cello bow and try it.
    I’m using a Cheap Violin bow right now – works much better than my “original” Esraj bow.

    To get an idea of what Ustadji is doing with the bowing – just observe his forearm. You don’t really need to see his hand.

  4. Dear manav Jee SSA:

    (I do beg your pardon if I have your name wrong)

    Thankyou for a prompt reply. I appreciate it.

    I will follow your advice.

    I must confess I am a newbie at Israj. I do however Play the Sitar (barely), so I may be leaping ahead of myself, as I still cannot get past the scratching sound being produced by the bow, however, If I “BOW” slowly, I do get clear notes.

    I can eke out renditions of some Raags and filmi songs, but I realize I am leaning heavily on my experience with the Sitar.

    Would you have any lesson (s) on BOW tecniques that I may purchase from you.

    I also look forward to any advice you may have for me and which other lessons I should acquire from you.

    Please extend my SSA to USTADJI

    Thanking you

  5. Is the lesson Still Available ? I want to try Lesson 7 and 8 for intermediate level. Do you teach over Skype, Live? Is there any contact number that I can talk to you and setup online live or something else.

  6. Dear Manav,
    in the last two videos, ustadji gives us the sargam of what is being played, which is very helpful. i think it would be really helpful to know the sargam being played for the first two exercies as well. might it be possible for you to post this in the lesson or send me in a message?
