कोविड-19 को लेकर भारत ने बनाई गलत धारणा, समय से पहले खत्म किया लॉकडाउन- डॉ फाउची
कोविड-19 को लेकर भारत ने बनाई गलत धारणा, समय से पहले खत्म किया लॉकडाउन- डॉ फाउची
अमेरिका के शीर्ष संक्रामक रोग विशेषज्ञ डॉ एंथनी फाउची ने सांसदों से कहा कि भारत ने गलत धारणा बनाई कि वहां कोविड-19 वैश्विक महामारी का प्रकोप समाप्त हो गया है और समय से पहले देश को खोल दिया, जिससे वह ऐसे गंभीर संकट में फंस गया है. भारत कोरोना वायरस की दूसरी लहर से बुरी तरह प्रभावित है और कई राज्य अस्पताल स्वास्थ्य कर्मियों, टीकों, ऑक्सीजन, दवाओं और बिस्तरों की कमी से जूझ रहे हैं. फाउच ने कोविड-19…

You can be as arrogant as you want, think you always have all the answers and be successful in life. Yet you will continue to feel alone, without a higher purpose! The only way is the one indicated by the red double-headed snake, he will lead you to glory and on his back you will reach the Great Hall of the Warrior Gods!

The End of The Line
Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier´s six-episode run on Disney+ was short-lived, but in no way forgettable.
By María José Puente. Published on May 11th, 2021, in Mexico City.
New World Order
“New World Order” was The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s first episode, which premiered on Friday, March 19th, on Disney+. According to the Hollywood Reporter, this episode amassed 495 million minutes of watch time upon its release, beating fellow Marvel show WandaVision, which amassed 434 million minutes last January, meaning that around 9.9 million accounts watched the episode when it first came out. This episode was discussed during interviews with Marvel superfans because it was the very first one, and it set the tone for the rest of the show.

Marvel superfan James Darling shared his thoughts on this episode during an interview. “I personally think it was brilliant. Captain America is one of my favorite characters, and I was really sad to see Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) go, but I was ready for Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) to take on the shield. What happened when he gave up the shield left me shocked, I remember thinking “Wow, this guy is mental!” You can find this part of the interview with Mr. Darling below. Of course, Mr. Darling is talking about Sam Wilson’s decision to retire Captain America’s shield by donating it to the Captain America Exhibit that is inside the Washington's Smithsonian Air and Space Museum at the beginning of the show, which was given to him by Rogers at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
Another person who didn’t agree with his decision was Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan) A.K.A. The Winter Soldier.
While Sam is working with U.S Airforce First Lieutenant Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez), Bucky is seen attending government-mandated therapy after being recently pardoned, “making amends” for his time as the Winter Soldier, tackling is PTSD, and trying to take down some bad guys along the way. Him and Sam don’t seem to be friends at all, although Bucky has made some friends, particularly an old man, that happens to be the father of one of the Winter Soldier’s victims.
Sam and Bucky are brought together by the state of the world, six months after the events of Avengers: Endgame. Torres is investigating a group of terrorists called the “Flag Smashers” who liked the world better when it was being affected by the events after the Blip, which was the time period after Thanos (Josh Brolin) erased half of the world’s population with the Infinity Gauntlet in Avengers: Infinity War. Torres also discovers that these people have superhuman abilities after being injured by one of them, which is why Sam and Bucky decide to tackle the issue.
The real shocker, according to Marvel superfan Lana Roberts, came at the very end of the episode. “When you first watch it (the episode), you don’t expect a new Captain America. Well, at least I didn’t.” What she’s referring to, of course, is the moment when government officials elect a new Captain America, a soldier named John Walker (Wyatt Russel), giving him the name, the shield, a suit, and the authority that comes with the name. “I was devastated. Don’t get me wrong, I think Wyatt’s a great actor, but Sam should’ve been Captain America. Or at least Bucky! I was very upset.” The clip of the scene is attached below.

Racism, mental health, and everything in between
While a lot of time could be spent making an in-depth analysis of each and every episode, one of the most important things to note about The Falcon and the Winter Soldier in general is that it tackled several social issues along the way.
According to CBR, Henry Jackman, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier series composer, spoke about this topic before the tv show was released on Disney+. “There's weighty issues. It's still entertaining. It's not a deathly serious seminar about the political history of the United States of America, but it definitely touches on less comfortable, important things that give rise to some really quite impressive performances.” This was what he commented, hinting at the fact that important issues and topics would be raised during the show’s six episode run.
Mr. Darling had a lot to say on the subject. “Frankly, I think this was an amazing thing to do. I’ve read a lot of articles, and tweets, and text posts trying to criticize it, and saying that it tried to tackle too many things, but to be honest I thought it was perfect. It raises the real questions, it makes you reflect, and it makes you think about the state of the world.” Let’s take a closer look at the subjects that were addressed on the show.
Racism
Racism is tackled in several ways throughout the episodes. In episode 2, Sam and Bucky go to Isaiah Bradley’s (Carl Lumbly) house, a veteran who was a Super Soldier in the 50’s and even fought against the Winter Soldier in the Korean War.
Tumblr media

Bradley, who essentially did the same thing that Steve Rogers did, going rogue for his fellow soldiers, was court martialed and then spent 30 years in jail, obviously after being experimented on with the Super Soldier serum. The treatment that Rogers got was, obviously, quite different. This is why, when Bucky attempts to get information from him on the visit to his house, he gets angry and upset, not wanting to talk about his past hardships, or about the terrible experiments that he was submitted to.
After this, Sam yells at Bucky and they have a heated argument outside Bradley’s home. Sam is upset that Bucky kept Isaiah’s existence a secret for so long, and from everyone. While this is happening, the duo is approached by two policemen, who start threatening Sam, and only stop when they realize who he is.
This scene, and Isaiah’s story, are two stories that can be painfully recognized by many, and that the show tried to brig awareness to.
Mental Health
Marvel superfan Gina Hartley wanted to share her thoughts on Bucky’s therapy sessions, and his time in Wakanda. What she said was: “As someone who suffers from PTSD, I relate to Bucky Barnes a lot. I think that his journey truly exemplifies what patients with PTSD go though, and I think that his character development is amazing.”
Ms. Roberts also had her opinion on the subject. “Bucky Barnes has been through a lot, and Sebastian Stan’s brilliant portrayal of him makes it even more real. I think that his redemption arc is very well done.”
Although there are some people who think this could’ve been done a little differently, all interviewees said the same thing. As Mr. Darling said, “Bucky has been through a lot, and he deserves a freaking break to truly find happiness.”
Below is Bucky’s timeline since the events in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, leading up to the events in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Tumblr media
Infographic by María José Puente.
In Captain America: The Winter Soldier, released in 2014, The Winter Soldier / a very brainwashed Bucky Barnes, is sent to kill Nick Fury by Alexander Pierce and HYDRA, and he fails. Steve Rogers, or Captain America, his childhood best friend, recognizes him, and they fight. The Winter Soldier is sent to kill Rogers to ensure that Project Insight can be completed, and they fight. The Winter Soldier doesn’t kill Rogers, and he escapes at the end of the film, but not before saving Rogers’ life in the process.
During Captain America: Civil War, released in 2016, Bucky is framed by Helmut Zemo (Daniel Brühl) for a bombing during the signing of the Sokovia Accords in Vienna. Steve Rogers finds him, and tries to clear his name, which proves to be difficult because of the Sokovia Accords and the United Nations’ involvement. Bucky, Steve, and their team go to Berlin, where Zemo takes control of the Winter Soldier through brainwashing, and makes him escape, making him look guilty. Steve finds him again and they face Iron Man, or Tony Stark, (Robert Downey Jr.) and his team at an airport. Bucky and Steve get out and look for Zemo, who tells Iron Man that the Winter Soldier killed his parents. Bucky, Steve and Tony fight, and Steve and Bucky win. Bucky is granted asylum in Wakanda and starts working on his mental health with the Black Panther’s (Chadwick Boseman) help.
In Avengers: Infinity War, released in 2018, Bucky receives the new name “the White Wolf” and has completely recovered. He also receives a new vibranium arm, a replacement, since the other one was destroyed by Tony Stark. Bucky fights against Thanos and is erased during his snap.
During the events that take place in Avengers: Endgame, released In 2019, Bucky comes back with the rest of the people who had been erased and fights Thanos. In the end, he watches from a distance as a now old Steve Rogers hands his friend Sam Wilson the Captain America shield.
Supporting Characters: Fan Favorites
A lot of the supporting characters on the show are fan favorites. From villains like Baron Zemo, to Agent 13, Sharon Carter, (Emily VanCamp) yes, Peggy Carter’s niece, these characters captivated fan’s hearts.
Tumblr media

Baron Zemo
As it was mentioned earlier in the article, Baron Zemo is no saint. He was Captain America: Civil War’smain villain, blowing up the building in Vienna, framing and manipulating Bucky Barnes, and destroying the bond between the Avengers in the process as revenge for his family’s death during the events that happened in Sokovia in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Pretty bad, right? Well, fans seem to love him, Mr. Darling specifically. “Baron Zemo is an amazing character, with so many layers, and Daniel Brühl plays him fantastically well. Even if he doesn’t get much screen time his hilarious remarks, eccentricity and cleverness are never matched by any other characters. Also, the dancing scene was hilarious.” This is the scene he means:

Sharon Carter
Sharon Carter is a character who’s had it rough, because, unlike Bucky Barnes, she was not pardoned for being on Steve Rogers´ team during the events in Captain America: Civil War. However, she’s managed to make a living in Madripoor, as none other than the Power Broker, although none of our main characters learn of her identity.
Ms. Roberts’ favorite character is actually Sharon. “I just love her. Emily VanCamp is literally my girlfriend; I don’t care if she’s married. I think she’s a badas*, and that she’s always brought a lot to the table and has never been repaid for it. She’ll get her moment eventually; I’m patiently waiting for it.”
Both of these characters are extremely beloved. In this cartoon, inspired by Mean Girls’ “Get in loser, we’re going shopping”, Bucky, Sam and Zemo are in Zemo’s car, telling Sharon to go save the world with them.

The End?
As readers may already know, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier ends with the Flag Smashers’ leader Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman) death at the hands of Sharon Carter, as well as the rest of her companions’ deaths at the hands of Baron Zemo, who is in Wakanda, in jail, where he is supposed to live out the rest of his days. Sam Wilson finally takes on the Captain America name, John Walker is redeemed, Sharon Carter is pardoned and revealed to be the Power Broker, and Bucky apologizes to his friend for his son’s death and buys some cake for a party at the Wilson’s, but is this the end?
According to an article posted by IMDB on April 23rd, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier’s series showrunner, Michael Spellman, and Dalan Musson are already working on a fourth Captain America movie is in development, starring the new Star Sprangled Man, Anthony Mackie, as Sam Wilson. As for the rest of the characters, well, who knows? Maybe they will be seen in the fourth Captain America installment.
The Bottom Line
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is over, but Captain America’s legacy continues. No one knows exactly what the future holds, but for the time being, Marvel’s latest TV Show Loki, is premiering on Disney+ on Wednesday, June 9th, and it will bring even more material for fans to keep on watching and loving their favorite characters more and more every day. (10,167 characters).

CROSSFIRE - b. barnes/winter soldier
Tumblr media
Warnings: trauma, abuse, sexual assault!!!, death, violence, blood 
A/N: Thank you, so much for reading. Let me know what you thing and please have in mind that this story is DARK and there will be some heavy themes. If you are not comfortable reading it, please don't. You are more important!!!
CHAPTER 1
As long as she knew, this was always her life. It was her “normal”. How was she supposed to know, that children were to be taken care of, nourished and kept safe? How was she supposed to know that being locked in a cell, chained to the wall ever since she could walk was not normal? That it was cruel. But to her, it was her life, the only thing she knew as far as she could remember.
She was born in this very Hydra facility in Siberia. Born to a woman who willingly put herself in the hands of Hydra to experiment on her. The result of this very experiment was born during an extremely cold winter night, on January 1st, 1994. The sound of the baby crying could have been heard throughout the whole facility, but it was soon swallowed by a single gunshot. The mother was dead, murdered before she could even lay eyes on her newborn daughter, whose crying stopped after the sharp sound of the lethal weapon. As if she knew.
Still bloody and covered in bodily fluids, the baby girl was wrapped in a piece of white fabric and firmly grabbed by a man. He didn’t care that his expensive suit was almost instantly ruined. His only focus was the baby lying in his arms when he watched her hungrily. Hungry for the power she may possess in the future.
“You are going to make us proud. Am I right?” the smile on his face wasn’t gentle, he didn’t look at her as if she was a vulnerable child, born not even five minutes ago. He looked at her as if she was a possession. A weapon. An asset. That’s exactly what her future was. Full of pain, suffering, hate, anger.
She had no name. She had no identity. She had nothing. She was nothing. That’s how people around her should have acted towards her. She was not supposed to be raised with a single loving embrace, but she knew violence and abuse from an early age. She knew hunger. But all of that was normal to her. She never questioned it, because she didn’t know any better.
However, there was a single person that saw her as something more. A person that couldn’t contain her motherly instincts, when she saw the four-year-old child in a dirty robe, barefoot, chained to a wall. It was not right. Nobody should live like this, be raised like this.
Whenever the woman, a nurse in the Hydra facility could, she would bring the skinny, malnourished child, who was too small for her age, something to eat. Something to drink. Bucket of warm water and a towel to clean her.
“Now, that’s better, isn’t it?” the woman smiled at the girl when her small feet were no longer dirty. The nurse, Valerie, cared for the child, like no one else. Over the years, she taught her how to speak, how to write, how to count. It was all in secret, the only good thing was, that while the girl was this small, nobody cared about her, except for doctors running tests on her here and there. For now, she was useless for them. Forgotten in this very room she knew as her home.
Valerie developed strong feelings for the girl. Loving her as if she was her own. Pitying her, because she couldn’t do anything to save her. Only the fact, that the kid didn’t know how horribly she is being treated, comforted Valerie.
When the girl was five, Valerie decided that she would give her a name. “I can’t call you girl, baby, am I right?” she smiled at the child sitting on the ground, picking on a scab on her knee. “Do you like the name, Zoe, hmm?” she asked and caressed the girl on her matted, wild black hair.
“I don’t know,” she mumbled, the words rough on her tongue. She wasn’t used to speaking with anyone other than Valerie.
“It means life. I think we should call you Zoe,” Valerie watched the girl nod her head. “But you can’t tell anyone, alright? Just like with talking, it’s between me and you,” she explained and the girl, Zoe, nodded again. She was a sharp, smart, brilliant and well-behaved child even though they tried to raise her like an animal. Valerie made sure she would know what a soft touch is. What a hug or a kiss is. That she would be rewarded and praised if she does something good.
But maybe Valerie’s efforts weren’t the best idea. Maybe she should have left her alone because Zoe soon understood that she didn’t like when they screamed at her, when they slapped her, when they kicked her and that there was a big difference between Valerie’s treatment and how other people treated her. And she showed it when she cried quietly. When she called into the darkness. When she started to tear the chains from her small wrist, only to tear her own skin.
Nothing changed in Zoe’s routine for the longest time. For years she’s been kept in the ugly, cold room, chained, never seeing the world outside. Her world consisted of four walls and one older woman with auburn hair and brown eyes. And she had kind eyes. Eyes were something Zoe always looked at first, trying to figure out if the person was there to hurt her on not.
Zoe was ten when they started to examine her further. Sometimes it was almost every day. Her small body would be tied up to a medical bed for hours, doctors walking around her, pinching her, taking her blood, touching her without her permission. Nobody pays her any attention if it wasn’t something with her body. Her mind, they didn’t care about that, because she was just a thing for them.
When Zoe was thirteen, sitting on the hard ground, once again chained, a man visited her. She never saw him before. He had short dark hair, dark facial hair and brown eyes. They were not kind, that’s the first thing Zoe noticed, and it sent shivers all over her body. However, she couldn’t tell why. He was lean, tall and stood near the door he loudly closed just seconds ago. He just stood there, looking at her hungrily, watching her like a hawk, the muscles under his black shirt clenching. If she knew what would come, maybe she would somehow prepare. But at the same time, she didn’t know what was happening to her. Why he was walking to her, why he slowly unzipped his pants and touched her leg, only to violently pull her towards him. He would whisper things to her in a voice that for some reason almost made her vomit. Zoe felt fear at that time, although she didn’t know what was happening. But when his hands went up to her legs and towards her private parts, something told her it wasn’t right, that he shouldn’t be doing this. She tried to get away from him, but her fragile body was easily overpowered by him. In the end, she was just lying on the ground, with her head turned upwards, doing anything possible to not look at the man towering over her. She was softly humming in her head just to drown out the noises he was making and the pain she was feeling between her thighs. Zoe didn’t even notice that by the time he finished, warm tears were falling from her eyes and there was a sticky, white liquid all over her belly and the big, white shirt she was constantly wearing.
When Valerie found her, she knew instantly what happened to the girl and it broke her heart when confused Zoe asked her what the man was doing to her. Because she was so pure, so naïve, that she didn’t have a clue, but Valerie could also tell, that Zoe knew it was wrong. With Zoe’s description, Valerie knew that the visitor was Brock Rumlow, slimy, vicious, good for nothing son of a bitch, who took advantage of a child. “My poor Zoe. My little butterfly, I promise you one day you will fly,” Valerie couldn’t hold her tears back when she helped the girl clean up. She didn’t know what to do. What to tell her, when Zoe asked what happened to her. Perhaps, it was good she didn’t know for now, but sooner or later, she will understand on her own.
And she did because that was not the last time Brock Rumlow visited her room. Zoe never knew when he would come, but he always would. He would always spare some time for her when he came to the Siberian facility. And she hated it, feared the time he would lay his hands on her because she finally understood. She figured it out and she was felt ashamed, dirty, unworthy, humiliated. It slowly broke her heart, but surely extinguished the little fire she had in her. She no longer dreamt of flying, just like Valerie promised.
When she was fifteen years old, Zoe was roughly woken up with a kick to her ribs. Two men dressed all in military uniforms were standing above her, screaming at her in a language she couldn’t understand. When they unlocked her chains, Zoe was dragged out of her room, down to the long corridor she knew so well, but they brought her inside of a big room she never saw before. There were people she didn’t recognize and people she did, like Valerie, Rumlow and a doctor who often ran tests on her.
Zoe could tell something was wrong with the whole situation because Valerie was crying, covering, blood running down her nose. Rumlow on the other hand was standing behind her, with a satisfied smirk on his face. “Haven’t seen you in a while,” said an unfamiliar voice. She looked to her right side and saw an older man in a black suit. “When I saw you last time, you were barely one year old,” he said and looked at Zoe up and down, before he came over and bent down to look right into her eyes, just inches from her face. “How are you, child?” Zoe was quiet, she knew better than to speak in front of anyone. That’s what Valerie always told her. Her silence just made the man laugh. “Come on, child. I know you can speak. She taught you, didn’t she?” Zoe quickly looked at Valerie, who was hysterically sobbing, holding her chest as if she had a heart attack.
“Please,” whispered Valerie. “It’s not her fault.”
The old man straightened himself and went over to Valerie. Zoe wanted to follow him with her eyes, to watch him and make sure he didn’t strike when she least expects it. However, when he left, behind him she saw another man, standing in the corner of the room, in the shadows, watching the scene. He was tall, taller than anyone she ever met, with broad shoulders, dressed in black leather and black military pants. She couldn’t see his face very well but saw that his hair was longer. What caught her attention the most was the silver arm with a red star. She couldn’t look away, but she should have.
It was a sharp sound resonating through the room, that made her look away from the man and back to the old man. Valerie was now on her knees, holding her already bleeding face, sobbing. The man turned over his shoulder to Zoe. “Do you know what she did?” he asked her, and Zoe was once again silent. “He wanted to kill this man,” he put his arm on Rumlow’s shoulder, who just shook his head, looking at Valerie with disapproval. “My agent. And for what you are asking? For you, my dear child.”
Zoe was still quiet, not knowing what to say or how to help Valerie. What she knew was, that it broke her heart seeing the kind woman do distraught. “He sexually assaulted her multiple times. She is just a child,” screamed Valerie, and wanted to stand up, but Rumlow shoved her back on her knees and with the handle of his gun punched her in the back of her head.
“No,” Zoe gasped, and wanted to help Valerie, but the two men who brought her into the room held her back.
“Ah,” smiled the old man and went closer to Zoe. “there you go. Can you say anything else?” stubbornly, Zoe went silent. “No? Alright,” he mumbled and turned to Rumlow. Zoe didn’t see if he gave Rumlow a sight, but the man brought his gun to Valerie’s head and shot her. Right into the back of her head, she didn’t even scream, didn’t even gasped, just fell forward, lifeless.
Zoe watched and for a split second was confused. Death. She was familiar with it because Valerie told her. Her mother died when Zoe was born, and she never saw her. And now Valerie died, and Zoe will never see her again because she was gone. Dead and gone. Zoe had no one. From the corner of her eyes, she saw a movement, the man in the shadows went forward when the gun went off, but Zoe ignored him. She ignored everyone, in her mind and her chest was in unbelievable pain, almost as if she was the one Rumlow shot.
It all happened in seconds, but in Zoe’s mind, everything was in slow motion. Like when the old man turned to her and with a smile watched her tears and face turned into a grimace when her sobs weren’t able to escape her. She couldn’t breathe, she almost heard her heartbreaking, shattering into million pieces. She was silently crying, being watched by everyone, but then suddenly the attention wasn’t on her.
Utter chaos, that’s what it was, when everything in the room shattered, just like her heart. Things were exploding, windows breaking, glass flying everywhere cutting whoever was in the way, people in the room were trying to hide. And in the middle of it all was Zoe, standing in her dirty robe, clenching her fists, silently crying, feeling as if she will soon explode just like everything around her was.
Just like it started, it all ended and finally, Zoe could take a breath and the first sob run violently through her petite body, bringing her to her knees just like Valerie was not long ago. “Valerie,” Zoe whispered. She didn’t see the look of awe on the face of the old man. Zoe just didn’t care.
“Amazing,” he whispered, looking at the girl on the ground who just single-handedly destroyed the whole room in a matter of seconds. This is exactly what he was waiting for.
Zoe wanted more than anything to hold Valerie, to see her kind eyes. The brown eyes, that were now lifelessly looking into emptiness. She wasn’t brave enough to look at the woman, to see the blood pooling around her as proof that she is gone and won’t come back to her. A movement caught her attention. It was the man again and he was standing, watching her and she could see his face now. The sharp jawline with dark facial hair, straight nose, dark eyebrows. Everything was just like it should be. His face was just pretty in Zoe’s opinion. But it was blank, just like his eyes. They were not kind like Valerie's, they were not evil like Rumlow’s, they were not calculating like the old man’s, there was nothing. Perhaps a curiosity, but other than that, they were empty, just like his expression.
The old man hummed when he crouched down next to her and saw her looking at the strange man. “Now you see, that,” he pointed his finger at the man, who was still not moving, just watched her. “is someone you wouldn't want as a visitor in your room. You're lucky it's just Brock.”
After that, everything was a blur to Zoe, but two men dragged her back to her room, exhausted and heartbroken. She had no one. There was no Valerie who would sneak into her room. But she wasn't alone, because, since that day, people were all around her. Examining her, talking to her, trying to make her talk, but she never did. And she never lost control like she did when Valerie died. They told her she had powers. She didn’t care. She didn’t care about anything, because she was already slowly dying.
Zoe never saw the strange man with long hair, not until four years later. However, Brock Rumlow still visited her from time to time. But she didn’t care anymore. She understood that this was her life and she was not her own person.

Today I found out that it would have taken up to a month and a half for the team at SHIELD to fully defrost Steve and bring him out of the ice safely and securely without causing any more damage than might already have been done from the 70-year hypothermic coma he was in.
Which begs the question...did he feel it when he started regaining consciousness? Was he in pain as he felt the life slowly returning to his body? At what point did he become lucid? What does he remember about that time prior to him waking up fully in the (terrible, awful fake attempt at a) hospital room? Does he remember anything?

I have no horses in this race, and I'm not even watching the show, but why does the Falcon's new suit cover pretty much everything but the top of his head, which people normally take pains to protect? Isn't he just a squishy normal human, compared to all those superhumans? Why did they give him an extreme turtleneck but not just keep going up?
