Red Star 4 Victory - thrivingcommunities.solutions



A red star , five-pointed and filled ( ★ ), is an important symbol often associated with communist ideology, particularly in combination with hammer and sickle . It has been widely used in flags , state emblems , monuments , ornaments , and logos .

The five-pointed red star has often served since about 1917 as a symbol of communism . One interpretation sees the five points as representing the five fingers of the worker's hand, as well as the five continents . A lesser-known suggestion [ citation needed ] is that the five points on the star were intended to represent the five social groups that would lead Russia to communism: the youth , the military, the industrial labourers , the agricultural workers or peasantry and the intelligentsia .

A red star became one of the emblems, symbols and signals representing the Soviet Union under the rule of the Communist Party , along with, for example, the hammer and sickle . In Soviet heraldry, the red star symbolized the Red Army and the military service, as opposed to the hammer and sickle, which symbolized peaceful labour.

Different countries across Europe treat the symbol very differently: some have passed laws banning it by claiming that it represents "a totalitarian ideology", but other countries hold a very positive view of it as a symbol of antifascism and resistance against Nazi occupation.

Another claimed origin for the red star relates to an alleged encounter between Leon Trotsky and Nikolai Krylenko . Krylenko, an Esperantist , wore a green-star lapel badge; Trotsky enquired as to its meaning and received an explanation that each arm of the star represented one of the five traditional continents. On hearing that, Trotsky specified that soldiers of the Red Army should wear a similar, red, star. [2] In a speech given by Trotsky in 1923, he mentions the red star:

For the seventh time since the overthrow of Tsardom, for the sixth time under the sickle and hammer of the Soviets and the Red star of battle [3]

Kendrys Morales turned 32 on Saturday, and he shimmied through a sweltering dugout a few hours before game time accepting well wishes from fans, broadcasters and team executives. His real present would not arrive until 8 p.m. on the dot, midway through Kansas City’s five-inning battering of Boston, when Rick Porcello gifted him a belt-high, two-seam sinker.

The sinker is meant to dive downward as he approaches the plate, a sudden, late shift that interrupts the rhythm of a hitter and produces groundballs. Porcello did not complete his objective. The pitch was fat, worthy of punishment, and Morales unleashed a two-run homer that capped a five-run frame in a 7-4 victory.

In their ninth win in the past 12 games, the Royals, 39-26, erased a three-run deficit in the fifth. Along the way they exploited a string of mistakes by the free-falling Red Sox. Before Morales cleared the right-field fence, Boston completed an inglorious trifecta: A hit batsman, a balk and a game-tying throwing error.

The error, committed at third base by former Giant Pablo Sandoval, allowed Alcides Escobar to score from third. Sandoval lunged to scoop a grounder off Lorenzo Cain’s bat and attempted a tag on Escobar at the bag. His left leg buckled as he sprayed a throw up the right-field line.

Morales entered the batter’s box a few moments later. He had already watched the team run into the last out of an inning when he stood at the plate. With two outs, he longed for an opportunity to go deep on his birthday. He had already done it twice before, in 2009 and 2012. Given a chance by Porcello, Morales did it again.

The rally started six batters earlier. Porcello drilled Alex Rios to open the frame. The Royals executed a textbook hit-and-run to place runners at the corners: Rios ran with the pitch and second baseman Omar Infante stroked a groundball in the space vacated by the shortstop. An RBI single by Escobar cut the deficit to 4-2.
