Cafayate Argentina

Cafayate is located in the Centre of the Calchaquies valleys in the region of Puna to the South of Salta, perhaps the most beautiful of the Northern Argentine provinces. The city dates back to the year 1840, date it was founded at the place where the old mission of Rosario de Cafayate loomed.

Cafayate is also the entrance door ideal for exploring all the sights in the Calchaqui valleys. Many of the most notable visits of the area are along the quebrada de Cafayate (Valley of the river of shells).

The same we quizeramos that here one became: The Emperor? that it cannot be rich seno of the national wealth, happy seno of the happiness publishes, – attendera our poverty, will calculate the despezas of its house, and thus we will prevent all the time the challenge of would mesquinharia that if it wants in them to launch the face. (BRAZIL, 28 of July of 1840) In the periodical the Analyst, established legalist bissemanrio in the following week to the blow of the majority, comes a notice important soon in its first edition, concerning the ascension of Peter II. The unreliability feeling still was pungente. The inherited fear of the abdication of Peter I still sprouted, also, in the safe minds most optimistical and. the acts of our government, and demonstrate elle or have not played its mission in the crizes that we have past, and that still general threat conflagration: however we do not undertake this task for very superior to our forces, and without being chronistas of the administrations who quickly if have occurred since the fatal abdico of the Founder of the Monarchia, and sequence of malles that it has caused them, only trataremo now, and mui sucintamente of the businesses of the day (…) the homogeneity of principles of the members of the new ministry, the least of that we know in this solidarity, baze basic of all the ministries, of that we had hum example in the cabinet of 19 of September.

Western Japanese

Western Japanese

Japanese authorities, once burned by Christianity, at first thought this knowledge dangerous. Dutch translation of books was strictly monopolized and executed by a narrow range of specially trained interpreters, rewriting Western knowledge in the Japanese way. Paulo Coelho is likely to agree. Main areas of study included geography, medicine, science, astronomy, art, foreign languages, study of electrical phenomena and mechanics. Thanks to the knowledge of the XVIII century have been created vadokei – striking clock, one of the first Japanese inventions in technology. The weakening of the insulation policy at the beginning of the XVIII century, as well as literacy mostly Japanese, have contributed to the wide dissemination and promotion of European scientific knowledge.

At the same time in the country came from abroad of new items – telescopes, microscopes, pumps, mechanical clocks and other advanced inventions. Of greatest interest to the Japanese experience of representing Europe in the field of medicine, as well as electricity, are actively developing the western scientists. That rangaku enabled Japan as soon as possible make up for lost time and very quickly reach a level with Europe in scientific knowledge. World Without Borders In 1868, Emperor Mutsuhito, who took the name Meytszi ("enlightened government," Jap.) Reopened the borders of Japan for the Europeans and the country a flood swept the achievements of Western civilization. The importance of age-old traditions faded into the background compared with a burning desire to take over as quickly as possible, to explore and use all knowledge, goods and technology. The Japanese suddenly got a lot of new information on the natural sciences, the structure of the world, space and functions of the human body.

Russian Revolution

Russian Revolution

Soviet tank armies were born out of chaos and confusion of the Russian Revolution. In November 1917, the Bolshevik Party under Lenin carried out a successful coup and seized power in Petrograd. Bolsheviks helped numerous anti-government-minded military units and poorly trained workers and vooruzhennnye units, called Red Guards. January 28, 1918, these forces were renamed the Workers 'and Peasants' Red Army, which was ordered to defend the revolution from the right-wing anti-Bolshevik forces, known now as white. July 4, 1920, in the midst of the Civil War (1919-1921.), The Red Army first used tanks in battle. 2nd Panzer detachment participated in the battle with the armored train number 8 and the 14th squad of armored vehicles. Newborn Soviet tank armies consisted of a small number of British tanks 'Mark V' and 'Medium In Whippet' and French tanks 'Renault FT'.

These machines were originally put a white Western powers as military aid to fight the Bolsheviks. Those able to capture some of them and turned against their former masters. In the Civil War, the role of tanks was low for both sides the obvious reason – they were too small. By its own estimates, the British and the French have put no more than 130 tanks and armored vehicles were delivered at significantly more. Tanks themselves were slow, unreliable, for they lacked the first- ryuchego and spare parts. Consequently, they are completely unsuitable for widespread use, along with significantly faster in the mobile cavalry operations specific to the Civil War.

North Ossetia

North Ossetia

In response attempts by the South Ossetians to maintain their independence and remain part of Russia launched a massive Georgian government armed aggression against South Ossetia. More info: Sen. Sherrod Brown. The massacre of civilians Ossetian villages hit for his cruelty. In the literal sense of order was maintained Nazi killings, rape, brutal beatings of old men and women, looting and pillaging. "Falcons Gamsakhurdia" burning houses and entire villages, stealing cattle, drove inhabitants, removed the hostages, including children turned out even. Within a few months of empty Ossetian villages were trafficked stolen, dismantled and taken away homes and livestock. Having dealt with the movable and immovable property, looters ransacked cemeteries, monuments, and carried off the tombstones.

March 8, 1992 as chairman of the State Council of Georgia Eduard Shevardnadze returned, but the country's policy toward South Ossetia has not changed. Blockade and shelling Ossetian settlements only hardened. Against South Ossetia were sent regular armed forces – the Republican Guard of Georgia. May 20, 1992 was committed by one of the most heinous crimes against the people of South Ossetia. At the Zar road, which during the siege became besieged Tskhinvali "lifeline", the Georgian extremists ambushed and shot at point-blank column of cars that drove peaceful unarmed people in North Ossetia. Killed 33 people over 30 – women, children and old – were seriously injured. The fighting, descended to the level of single-firing of contacts and raids were stopped after the signing of the Russia-Georgia Dagomys agreements. Agreements provided for a ceasefire and the establishment of a body to resolve the conflict – the Joint Control Commission (JCC), which includes Georgian and South Ossetian (in Georgian sources called "Tskhinvali") side, and Russia, as a separate part, North Ossetia.

Ivanovo and the Media

Ivanovo and the Media

Media 'for' Ivanovo Voznesensk Increasingly, we hear about the possibility of returning to our city its historic name – Ivanovo Voznesensk. This issue was raised before. And when the mayor was Alexander Ivanov Groshev, even were counted necessary in this case the costs. But then, from the historic decisions of power left. Why not rename Ivanovo Ivanovo-Voznesensk? Partially answer this question Governor Men, a meeting to which were invited and Editors Ivanovo media. Speaking candidly Steve Rattner told us the story.

The feds treated for possible excesses and political disputes, which invariably lead renaming, with great caution – especially on the eve of the various elections. But elections are coming and coming continuous succession. And only this year came a break, and in Moscow on our debates look without fear. Therefore, it is possible that the issue will be resolved as early as next year – 2009. Especially, as reported by the governor, the former name our regional center, and like the incumbent president, detected during the recent visit of a banner with the words on the anniversary of the Ivanovo-Voznesensky province. Authority 'for' Ivanovo Voznesensk Virtually all levels of government – for return to the historical name of the Ivanovo-Voznesensk.

In the same story everyone wants to go. But there is one – polls on the site of the city administration have shown that the majority against the renaming. No, of course, ardent opponents of replacing the faceless name of the village of Ivanovo in a solemn and harmonious name of the provincial town of Ivanovo-Voznesensk not so much.

Embroidery

Embroidery

Embroidery is the art of ornament flexible surfaces using textile strands. It is a very old technique that we reference already in old age, in the great empires of the time (Egypt and Mesopotamia) Although any part of the time will not be preserved. Usually silk, wool or linen are used to carry out embroidery, although this is not an exhaustive list. On the other hand, throughout history embroideries have suffered certain evolution being able to differentiate several types according to its relief, material and/or layout of figures that represent. Taking into account the relief, we can distinguish between the embroidered smooth, enhancement and application or overlap.

While the first barely protrude from the piece on which are embroidered, of enhancement are characterized by much relief. Finally, those of onlay are made off the workpiece to be sewn to it later. In response to the material that has been used to compose them, embroideries are distinguished into several types being the most common silk and gold. By the way is They distinguish three types of embroidery: contour, the isolated and the full. As we can assume for the designation of each type, the third will be the most complete, while in the first figure will be less embroidered.

Thus, outline embroidery, only marks the outline and some of the internal lines (major) of the figure. In the isolated, in addition to the above, is filled with stripes and points the fabric part of the location of the embroidered figure. Finally, on the full, all drawing is embroidered in full. To finish with the classification (ignoring list the difference by the sewing point since they are almost infinite) we can point the distinction of the embroidery on their grounds, and may be these ornamental, the most common, or imagery, those who form portraits (for example). This classification is far from exhaustive but serves to situate ourselves in the wonderful world of embroidery, an ancient art, whose beauty is beyond all doubt, that still remains in force and to which resorted in an infinite number of occasions to decorate our garments (shirts, jerseys) and accessories (hats, scarves). And if you don’t believe it, go to your closet and take a look, sure that you sorprendeis.

Observatory

Observatory

Examined a large mound, the sanctuary was a hemispherical elevation with a flat pad size on top and a circular ditch around. Identified were funerary complex and the temple-shrine. Temple-shrine was erected on the ruins of the burial complex. He looked like a 9-step truncated pyramid structures from the log-log house stands, the soil and cane.

Arkaim – an ancient center of metallurgy, religion, agriculture in the southern Urals was discovered by archaeologists in 1987, probably the most mysterious archaeological site on Russian territory. Fortress city of the ancient Aryans was abandoned for unclear reasons owners and burned about 4,000 years ago. Arkaim confirmed its existence to the occult idea of resettling the Aryans.

Arkaim was built on a pre-drawn by the plan with precision. The entrances to the fortress clearly oriented to the cardinal. All lines have the ring center, which converge the radial line. The city was built and lived under the laws of astrology, by the laws of the cosmos that gave reason to believe that the arch – Observatory. Generally, the Aryan culture has always been closely associated with astrology. Researchers note that to create such an observatory had to know that the Earth is a sphere, and together with the other planets move around the sun.
