Perspective at its best. Right below the stunning Khaju Bridge, sadly without water since 2013 due to climate change. It’s still one of the favorite spot for locals to meet up, even if it’s no more as nice as it was in the past. 🇮🇷🇮🇷🇮🇷 . #pampuriontherocks . #travel #travelphotography #perspective #bridge #architecture #history #historychannel #bbctravel #cnntravel #iran #persia #backpacking #globetrotter #endlesssummer #callitmagic #vivalamagia #nomatterwhat #senzapalle #travelblogger #horizon
Curiosity Shop in Jericho, City of the Moon and one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. - A shop with a broad view of the Mount of Temptation yonder, I looked around the place, the fields of dates palms, farmers, little boys tending to camels, a few SUVs driving up the mountain road, tourists like myself (most of them older) clicking away, and retired uncles enjoying a chat under the shade. - I went about clicking pictures while trying not to attract too much attention, munching on the apricot and fig they generously presented to all visitors. - "And he made two cherubim of hammered gold; on the two ends of the mercy seat he made them, 8 one cherub on the one end, and one cherub on the other end; of one piece with the mercy seat he made the cherubim on its two ends. 9 The cherubim spread out their wings above, overshadowing the mercy seat with their wings, with their faces one to another; toward the mercy seat were the faces of the cherubim."

The Truth About Religion.. From the late great Dr. Been #history #historychannel #culture #africa #kemet #christianity
Times were spare during the Great Depression, so saving and reusing everything possible was a way of life. During this time if women wanted to provide for their families, they had to get creative, especially when it came to clothing. That’s when they noticed that one of the common foods in their home-flour- came in cotton sacks. They often emptied the sacks and used the fabric to make clothing for their children. When flour manufacturers caught word that their sacks were being used as clothing, diapers, dish towels and more, they started packing their flour in pretty patterns. The sacks came in bright, colorful designs and sometimes patterns were made for toys like bears and other dolls. The sacks were labeled but the ink was washable. It’s estimated that during the Depression, about 3.5 million women and children were wearing clothes and using items made from flour sacks. 🌾✂️👗😊 #notoriousnarratives #weirdhistory #history #historyfacts #nerdygirl #womenshistory #fashion #inventions #floursacks #historychannel #fashionhistory #historybuff #historygeek #femalepodcasts #discoverychannel #travelchannel #greatdepression

Quello bianco è l'armadio di casa mia. La maglietta da gioco è quella personalmente indossata dal "MiniMamba" durante una gara di Eurolega della scorsa stagione... Cosa ci fa lì, domanderete voi ? Se hai la fortuna che... - la mattina dopo la serata a Trento dello scudetto un importante dirigente della squadra ha un urgente guaio domestico da sistemare - viene incaricato della manutenzione il figliolo della tua grandissima custode - il ragazzo nota la maglietta e il dirigente riconoscente gliela regala - la sua mamma amichevolmente sa della tua "moderata" passione x il basket e del tuo pluriennale abbonamento Olimpia - al ragazzo, in realtà, del basket non interessa granché... Il seguito è storia di stamattina e già sacra reliquia conservata nella casa del coach/tifoso scrivente... Grazie Niki!!!

10/16/1846 — The Gas 😷 . So, it’s the middle of the 19th century and you need surgery that will put you in excruciating pain 😬. Please review your futile options to try and avoid the ache, and notify the doctor of your preference. . 🕰 Hypnosis ☘️ Eat marijuana 👊🏻 Get punched in the face so hard you pass out 🍺 Get so drunk you pass out (and potentially die) 😳 Get so high on opium that you pass out (and potentially die) . This was the medical world 27-year-old Boston dentist William T.G. Morton revolutionized when he walked into Massachusetts General Hospital today in 1846 and knocked out a tumor patient using ether 😵. A surgeon removed the tumor from the unconscious patient, the patient woke up hours later with no recollection of the pain, and Morton had successfully demonstrated the first anesthesia. 🙌 . For some time, younger folks had been getting weird by inhaling ether to numb the senses and lose inhibitions 🧞‍♂️, and numerous dentists had experimented with ether to get through dental procedures 😁 . Morton observed these trends and developed what Dr. John Warren, the renowned surgeon who removed the tumor in the operating theater, described as an "apparatus . . . consisted of a tube connected with a glass globe. This apparatus he then proceeded to apply, and after four or five minutes the patient appeared to be asleep, and the operation was performed." ⚗️ . So… yeah… Morton essentially invented a… bong? . Tokes aside 🥁, after the successful operation, word of Morton’s “anesthesia” – a term suggested by Dr. Oliver Wendall Holmes, ALSO OF BOSTON – spread like wildfire 🔥. . Surgeons writ large enthusiastically embraced it to perform dramatic operations over longer periods. Before the year was up, ether would be used to operate throughout the United Kingdom and between battles in the Mexican War. . October 16th would henceforth be known as “Ether Day” and in 1868, a 40-foot granite fountain was built in the northwest corner of the ‪Public Garden‬ to commemorate it ⛲️🌳🌺. You can also still visit the “Ether Dome” at Mass General where Morton’s device was first used – it’s now a National Historic Landmark. 🚧📍🚧
The Greensboro Sit-Ins of 1960. • The Sit-Ins were instigated by four African American students from North Carolina A+T College, who participated in a series of revolutionary peaceful protests • Dining in the ‘all white section’ of Woolworths, they protested a world of segregation • The Sit-In’s resulted in 70,000 people participating over the states • The cafe was forced to close due to ‘chaos’ and the boys were welcomed back to college as heroes • The last photo reveals the descendants of two of the original A+T members, alongside two of the original members • A statue was erected at their College in commemoration of their bravery and contribution to a more equal society. • Chip Richmond (son of David Richmond), Franklin McCain Jr (son of Franklin McCain), Jibreel Khazan and Joseph McNeil . #asliceofhistory #historychannel #historypage #history #historicphotos #worldhistory #historyofamerica #americanhistory #civilrights #civilrightsmovement #civilrightsactivist #discrimination #segregation #stopracism #stopsexism #equality #northcarolina #greensboro #sitins #1960s #60s #martinlutherking #ihaveadream #historyphoto #peacefulprotest #stayhungrystayfoolish #letstimetravel
The Great Stupa at Sanchi is one of the most important Buddhist monuments reflecting gem of Buddhist art and architecture. Located at Sanchi Town, Madhya Pradesh, India, this Stupa is the oldest stone structure in India that was built during the Mauryan period. Originally commissioned in the third century BCE by Emperor Ashok this huge hemispherical dome with a height of 12.2816.46 m (54.0 ft) consists of a central chamber where the relics of Lord Buddha are placed. Four ornamental gateways facing four directions and a balustrade surrounding the Stupa were later added in the first century BCE. A typical example of a Stupa and an excellent illustration of the development of Buddhist art and sculpture starting from the third century BC through the twelfth century AD, the Sanchi Stupa attracts hundreds of visitors from across the world. Enlisted as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1989, it is counted among the best conserved ancient Stupas of central India.
