Om Tare Tuttare mantra chanting with Satyadevi  

Satyadevi sings during a saturday evening satsang at Yoga Vidya Bad Meinberg, Germany, the kirtan "Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha", a mantra for the invocation and worship of the Green Tara. The Green Tara symbolizes the active compassion of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. The Green Tara is a symbol for the divine mother. The singing of this mantra brings comfort, healing and new strength. It helps to overcome ominous and harmful influences on the way to the liberation. You can find the text in the Yoga Vidya Kirtan Songbook as number 550, but the text is very simple and can be easily recited or sing along. It is simply: "Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha".

Warnings NSW is preparing to dumb down Year 12 English exams  

New South Wales students could soon face significantly easier Year 12 English examinations. The state's Education Standards Authority recently asked for feedback on proposed changes to HSC testing. One of its ideas was to cut exam time by a quarter. But the authority has got back a scathing submission from five former English examiners who warn the changes could make it easier for students to 'game' the system, memorise answers and fuel the lucrative tutoring industry.

threshold  

Merriam-Webster's Word of the Day for June 23, 2017 is:

threshold • \THRESH-hohld\  • noun

1 : the section of wood or stone that lies under a door : sill

2 a : the means or place of entry : entrance

b : the place or point of beginning : outset

3 : the point or level at which a physical or mental effect begins to be produced

Examples:

"[This role] was very physical. At one point, … I'm trying to steal third, and they catch me. And I'm running back to second, running back to third, running back to second, running back to third…. We did that 50 times. A tear rolled down my cheek. I learned what my threshold for pain was, and I went beyond it." — Chadwick Boseman, quoted in Ebony, April 2013

"My dog Jude was sleeping on the rug, dreaming of running, his wrists flicking, when he let out a long, eerily muffled howl.… Jude startled awake and leapt to his feet barking loudly, as if he'd carried the dream across the threshold to full consciousness…." — Carl Safina, Natural History, July/August 2015

Did you know?

The earliest known use of threshold in the English language is from Alfred the Great's Old English translation of the Roman philosopher Boethius's De consolatione philosophiae. In this translation, which was written around 888, threshold appears as þeorscwold (that first letter is called a thorn and it was used in Old English and Middle English to indicate the sounds produced by th in thin and this). The origins of this Old English word are not known, though it is believed to be related to Old English threscan, from which we get the words thresh, meaning "to separate seed from (a harvested plant) using a machine or tool" and thrash, meaning, among other things, "to beat soundly with or as if with a stick or whip."
