SA Day 2: The Alamo Fun Facts • • • 1. You won’t find bullet holes in the walls of The Alamo, despite the amount of bloodshed that occurred. This is because with muskets they take so long to reload, it was simply faster to use the bayonets. • • • 2. The Alamo originally didn’t have a roof. When the US Army took control of the fort, they added height to the walls and finished it with the roof we see today. • • • 3. The limestone walls of the Long Barracks at the fort were erected by Native Americans nearly 300 years ago. • • • (The photo was taken on our first night in town. But it wasn’t until Day 2 that we finally toured the place. While I’m here, I want to mention that The Alamo wouldn’t have been available to us in the condition that it’s in if it wasn’t for Clara Driscoll and the Daughters of the Republic of Texas. It’s pretty incredible! Thank you, ladies!)
Millennials are now the largest generation in the labor force. More than a third of American workers today are Millennials (adults ages 18 to 34 in 2015), and they surpass Generation X (ages 35 to 50 in 2015) to become the single largest generational group in the U.S. workforce. ⠀⠀ Gen Xers’ place as the dominant generation within the labor force was very short-lived – just three years. ⠀⠀ #newgeneration #workforce
When a substance is heated up, its particles move more and it takes up a larger volume – this is known as thermal expansion. Conversely, a drop in temperature causes it to contract again. The mercury level inside a thermometer, for example, rises and falls as the mercury’s volume changes with the ambient temperature. This effect is most dramatic in gases but occurs in liquids and solids such as iron too. For this reason large structures such as bridges are built with expansion joints which allow them some leeway to expand and contract without causing any damage. Want to learn and know more?

Me time in the cockpit ⛵️📖🍷 Usually this is a night watch experience. But I’ll enjoy some sunshine all alone. I’m new to reading for pleasure... I’ve just been a student for too long & only had towers of textbooks. So now I really like reading about survival. Some real serious stories out there, I mean wow! My favorite show, easily watched some seasons 4+ times is LOST. I really would love to camp in some of these epic anchorages 😍 Pup tents will definitely be on the next boat. #funfacts #me #read #explore #learn #learning #survive #survival #timeforyourself #monohull #wine #books #nerd ALSO I picked this book up, at a book swap in Tahiti ✅
Took out a crochet hook this evening and played with making a barefoot sandal. I find it interesting that people decorate their feet. Did you know that in Podophilia the fetishized object is feet, or an accessory to feet, i.e., shoes, socks, nylons . . . (Technically, a foot fetish is called a Partialism, while a shoe fetish is called Retifism.)? #crochet #feet #funfacts #feetaregoodtohave I have a bad habit of never crocheting the other half of a pair of anything...

Know your birds... Brown-throated sunbird. Location: Singapore. This species of sunbird look larger than other sunbirds because of well...their size and shape. No, you are NOT fat. This beautiful little fellow came to visit and have a sip of nectar one wet morning in Singapore. We both were at the outdoor seating area of @botanicosg , what a pretty place. [Please go visit!!] Sunbirds got their name from their brilliant plumage in iridescent colours that look fab in sunlight. Hence the name. Sunbird. Make the connection. Have a great day ya'all. Be happy like birds. #visitsingapore #birder #birding #birdsinsingapore #sunbird #brownthroatedsunbird #international #hobby #passionmadepossible #botanico #nature #funfacts #restaurant #Singapore #placestoeatinsingapore #TheGarage #instagram #instatravel #instapic #instalike #birds #birdingcommunity #Asia #travel #travelwriter #onassignment

It's often so easy to complain about wasps because they are far more agressive than bees and they really love to sting us for no reason (luckily this one was totally happy on the lovage and didn't even try to sting me). However, they are important to our ecosystem: they are omnivorous pollinators who primarily feed on nectar, fruit juices and honey dew from plants, but they also prey on other insects and thus provide pest control for agricultural crops and home gardens. Due to their scavenging behaviour they are attracted to human activities where food is present, often with the result that we find them a nuisance. The good news is that wasps are territorial and do not like to approach other wasps' nests, and so you can purchase a fake wasp nest (or two) from your local hardware store to deter wasps from your outdoor gatherings this summer! #wonderwednesday #wasps #pollinatorweek2018 #pollinatorweek #funfacts #waspnests #omnivore #hymenoptera #paperwasp
Did you know ☝🏻that "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" is a sentence that contains all of the letters of the alphabet!😱🤔yup! It’s also called a pangram. It is commonly used for testing typewriters and computer keyboards, displaying examples of fonts, and other applications involving text where the use of all letters in the alphabet is desired. Also to practice calligraphy, in case you haven’t done in in a while and need to “warm up”. #funfact #funfactwednesday #humpday 🐫 #calligraphy #pangram #calligraphymasters #calligraphydaily #funfacts #learnedsomethingnew #calligraphynewbie #calligrapher #copperplate #copperplatecalligraphy #script #handlettering #thequickbrownfoxjumpsoverthelazydog

It's time to continue with our June photography contest! What's happening in this photo, taken by Michael Rhodes?⠀ ⠀ A CTD (Condusivity, Temperature, and Depth) Rosette device is being lowered into the ocean by a crew member aboard the Laurence M Gould in a rarely calm Drake Passage.⠀ ⠀ The Drake Passage is the body of water between South America's Cape Horn and the South Shetland Islands of Antarctica. Rough seas are very common here. In fact, many who cross it say they've survived the "Drake Shake". Seeing the waters this serene must have been a rare treat.⠀ ⠀ #ocean #water #photography #photographycontest #oceanphotography #science #scientist #drakepassage #drakeshake #Antarctica #SouthAmerica #calmwater #30DaysofOcean #scienceeducation #funfacts #voyage

I have not drank red wine for yeeeeeaaars. Because it gave me headaches. Every time. Every. Time. I would hear about the benefits of red wine and watch people sophistically drink it and wish I could. Someone gifted me a bottle a couple weeks ago and I thought oh fine I’ll try it again. I didn’t get a headache!! I went to the very high class winery down the street- also known as the local grocery store @krogerco - and asked for the wine. They didn’t carry it. A wine distributor happened to be there and I welcomed her joining the conversation as she told me she couldn’t drink red wines either and it’s due to her allergy to the wood barrels. Like they age the wine in oak wood barrels. So she told me to try red wine made in steel barrels. She told me New Zealand makes their red wine in steel barrels so I grabbed some Pinot Noir from New Zealand. You’ll see it sitting in that not proper wine glass in this picture. Is this huge news for anyone else?? Oh and other commonly known news is that I love food and don’t love doing dishes so this one pot pasta is a pretty regular meal. I need to get back to my wine so I’m not going to write out my whole recipe but this link is really similar. I just prefer rotini noodles and add some mushrooms! http://comfortspringstation.tumblr.com/post/53664534559/blow-your-mind-tomato-basil-pasta-no/amp #wine #redwine #winefacts #funfacts #healthyfood #vegetarian #veganrecipes #vegetarianrecipes #pastarecipes #onepotpasta #onepotmeal #dishwasher #healthyeating #myhealthgel #lowfat #lowfatmeals #relax #relaxing #fitness #easymeals #easydinner #winetime #italianfood #newzealand #kroger #grocerystore #quickmeals
Ever heard the term ‘plunging’. Almost every red wine made in Australia will have this technique applied to it. While the wine ferments with all the skins and stems still in the mix, the winemaker and their team will periodically plunge the skins that float at the top down to encourage even colouring and fermentation. The giant potato masher looking thing pictured is what they use to do it. The more you know.

One of the most rewarding things for us in the office is helping our patients AVOID surgery. 🤗 Currently, stem cell and regenerative therapy is used to treat various degenerative conditions of the shoulder, knees, hips, and spine. 🔬 They are also being used in the treatment of various soft tissue (muscle, ligaments and tendons) as well as bone-related injuries. Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that utilizes the body’s natural healing mechanism to treat various conditions. They are able to renew and repair diseased or damaged tissues, and have shown promising results in treatments of various orthopedic, cardiovascular, neuromuscular and autoimmune conditions.
