Gargoyles are stone statues that are attached to buildings. But they are more than just a decoration. Gargoyles are waterspouts that help rainwater flow away from a building’s walls. They’re carved from a block of solid stone, usually granite. Gargoyles look like all kinds of creatures, including animals, dragons and strange, imaginary monsters. #gargoyle #gargoyles #gargoylestatue #saintvitus #cathedral #prague #czechrepublic #czech #praguecity #saintvituscathedral #pragueczechrepublic #church #catholic #beautiful #katedral #mustgo #mustvisit #history #religious #hdr #hdrphotography #travelczezh #czechrepublic #czechrepublic 🇨🇿 #puzzle #puzzlestar #traveleurope #backpackingeurope #puzzlegrid

Adana Tarihi Seyhan ve Ceyhan nehirlerinin deltasında verimli sulak arazide kurulu Adana'nın tarihi, coğrafi konumu nedeni ile MÖ 6000 yıllarına dek uzanmaktadır. Adana, Antik Kilikya Bölgesi'nin en önemli şehirlerinden birisidir. Hititler'den Osmanlı'ya, gelmiş geçmiş birçok medeniyetlerin beşiğidir. Yaygın görüşe göre Adana, adını Yunan mitolojisine göre Gök tanrısı Uranus'un oğlu Adanus 'dan almıştır. Ancak bu konuda başka muhtelif görüşler de ileri sürülmüştür. Bir görüşe göre Adana'ya ait en eski yazılı kayıtlara ilk defa, Anadolu yarımadasının en köklü uygarlıklarından biri olan Hititlerin kaya kitabelerinde rastlanmaktadır. Boğazköy metinleri olarak bilinen MÖ 1650 yıllara tarihlenen bir Hitit tabletinde, Adana havalisinden Uru Adania yani Adana bölgesi olarak bahsedilmektedir. Bu konuda sadece bu tablet dikkate alınacak olsa bile Adana isminin en az 3640 yıllık bir geçmişi vardır. Bir başka rivayete göre eski çağlarda Seyhan nehri kıyılarının bol miktarda söğüt ağacı ile kaplı olması ve bu ağacın Mezopotamya kavimlerince And ağacı olarak tanınması da kente Adana isminin verilmesinde etkili olmuştur. Yine başka bir görüşe göre, ormanlık yörelerde yaşadığına inanılan Fırtına tanrısı Adad (Tesup ) adının, ormanları bol Toroslar ile Seyhan nehri bölgesinin oluşturduğu Adana yöresine isim olarak verilmiş olduğuna inanılmaktadır. Fenikeliler de bölgeye efendi anlamına gelen tarım ve bitki tanrısı Adonis'in adını vermişlerdir. Tarihi araştırmalardan elde edilen bilgilere göre, Adana, Yontma Taş Devri'nden bu yana yerleşim yeri olmuştur. Kilikya'nın en eski yerleşim merkezlerinden biri Tepebağ Höyüğü ilk çağlardan kalmadır. Höyükte rastlanan surlarla çevrili kent çekirdeği burada Neolitik çağda yaşayan kent dönemine ışık tutmaktadır. #01adanapazari #adana #organikürünler #doğal #kaliteli #01 #reçel #baharat #tekstil #organik #moda #salça #doğa #sifirbir #mangal #aktar #fashion #nature #giyim #çay #evyapımı #adonis #klikya #tarih #history

#OnShelvesNow : THE BEGINNING OR THE END, released just ahead of the 75th anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, chronicles the first efforts of American media and culture to process the Atomic Age. • Here, award-winning author Greg Mitchell reveals the shocking behind-the-scenes story of how the White House and the Pentagon scuttled production of Hollywood’s epic first film about the bomb. A movie that began as a cautionary tale would be drained of all impact due to revisions and retakes ordered by President Truman and the military—for reasons of propaganda, politics, and petty human vanity. Unearthing hundreds of documents that show how wise intentions were compromised in favor of defending the use of the bomb and the imperatives of postwar politics, Mitchell exposes how our implacable American mythmaking mechanisms distort our history. • “While the film bombed at the box office, Mitchell’s rich account of its making and larger implications should draw both history buffs and those concerned with the continuing issues around nuclear weapons.” —Publishers Weekly

🥨 Heute hätten wir die Eröffnung des Speyerer Brezelfests gefeiert 🥨😢 . Jährlich am zweiten Wochenende im Juli, von Donnerstag bis Dienstag, zieht unser Brezelfest hunderttausende Besucher*innen auf den Festplatz und ist damit eines der größten und beliebtesten Volksfeste am Oberrhein 🤩🎡In gemeinsamer Verantwortung zur Eindämmung der Corona-Pandemie musste es in diesem Jahr leider abgesagt werden. . Um das traditionsreiche Brezelfest dennoch nicht zu vergessen, lädt das Stadtarchiv Speyer alle Brezelfestfreund*innen von nah und fern herzlich zum Besuch einer Web-Präsentation in Form einer historischen Bilder-Zeitreise rund um das beliebte Fest ein. Dazu gibt es interessante Zahlen und Fakten. Konzipiert und entwickelt wurde die Online-Ausstellung von Julia Kratz und Wolfgang Knapp. Vielen Dank dafür! 👏 . Die Online-Ausstellung verweist selbstverständlich auch auf den Speyerer Verkehrsverein als Veranstalter des Brezelfests und verfügt über einen Link zur offiziellen Brezelfest-Website. . „110 Jahre Brezelfest Speyer“ versteht sich außerdem als Aushängeschild des Stadtarchivs, das weitere Fotos und Dokumente zum Brezelfest gerne als Schenkung entgegennimmt. Die Präsentation ist bis Ende August diesen Jahres online abrufbar unter ➡️ speyer.de/brezelfest . Schaut auf jeden Fall vorbei! ☺️ Und im nächsten Jahr feiern wir das Brezelfest dann umso intensiver, oder? 😉🥨 . #visitspeyer #speyererleben #speyer

Our little piece of New Zealand history ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Did you know The Boat Shed’s building was originally the New Zealand Railways Shipping Office and dates back to 1869. It was moved from central Queenstown to its current location on the Frankton Marina in 1936 and officially opened by Prime Minister John Key in 2013. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’ve also recently added the Mountaineer Room which showcases more of our history and is the perfect spot for your next meeting or function. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Image via @totsontour

Anno 3 Dopo Baffo Ho un'ottima memoria, molti di voi lo sanno, ricordo cosa bevete, cosa preferite mangiare, dove vi piace sedervi, quando siete venuti l'ultima volta a trovarci e anche il tavolo dove eravate e cosa avete ordinato...e un mucchio di altre cose! Una fortuna, certo! Utile anche nel lavoro, il super potere dell'oste...ma anche una condanna, purtroppo la mia memoria non è selettiva e registra perfettamente anche quello che può non far piacere ricordare. Posso rivivere chiaramente nei minimi dettagli questo maledetto giorno del 2017...in realtà automaticamente vado a qualche giorno prima...quando ci siamo sentiti al telefono, parlando di mare, maschere e nipoti/pesci, e ti eri pure alzato dal letto per metterti alla finestra! Poi il giovedì sera te li ho mandati a casa con la nonna mentre io sono rimasto giù, a lavorare.. un grande rimpianto, non ci siamo più visti... Sabato, casino, buona serata, facciamo tardi come sempre ... saranno state le 4 4.30, la mamma è venuta a casa, avete parlato, hai bevuto, ti sei sistemato. C'era un po' di venticello come stasera... Alle 7,15 il telefono e la corsa sperando di arrivare in tempo, ma eri già andato con il vento... Da lì i ricordi si amplificano, troppi...Noi, la gente..centinaia, i messaggi da vicini e lontani, le chiamate, io che mi faccio i Baffi, la folla al funerale, la rappresentanza dei carabinieri e delle associazioni della zona, il mio discorso improvvisato che potrei ripetere esattamente...e poi ancora gente, le prime pagine dei giornali...fino a mercoledì, il 12! Il mio compleanno. Ottimo giorno per la sepoltura, bravo...beh grazie per essere rimasto! Io lo spumante te l'ho portai, sono quasi sicuro che nessuno in Italia avesse mai visto "sbocciare" in un cimitero... Noi abbiamo fatto anche questa! Sono gli ultimi ricordi insieme...ma per fortuna "questa memoria" custodisce perfettamente tutti gli altri 33 anni precedenti, ci vediamo lì! Qui intanto, considerato l'anno funesto... tutto bene! Ciao "Ragazzo di bottega" #baffo #baffomurphys #babbo #hero #superhero #dad #legend #history #murphyspub #murphys #pub
