Finds of the week
You never paid attention to that many photos from travel are similar to each other? This is an instabagoch under the Nick InstarePeat, this similarity rushed into the eyes, and she even managed to create a popular account based on this – now a girl reads 219,000 people. InstarePeat (in life she is a director, but prefers not to advertise his real name) collects collages from photos of popular Travel Blogers. Works demonstrate that all travelers make almost the same, although beautiful, shots. Collages signed "Man in the center of frame on canoe" or "Man in a cave". The author of the blog emphasizes that it does not want anyone to offend anyone, simply calls for a more creative approach to the question. To look at the InstarePeat work is actually interesting! Earlier in Instagram appeared an account, exposing fake photos from travel.
Now we are in Sweden, son
Surprisingly, the well-known Soviet cartoon about Cheburashka and Crocodile Geno showed in Sweden! Listen to how the song of the crocodile genes in the language of this Scandinavian country sounds. In the comments to the video, Ivan Degtyarenko, I said that his colleague from Sweden shared memories with him: "In childhood, we had a Soviet cartoon about the crocodile named the gene and some small monkey. But cool, of course, the gene whom a monkey is worried?!"Moreover, it turned out that the song of the crocodile penetrated into Finland. In the repertoire of the Finnish artist and the musician M.A.Numminen it is. Many notes that the transfer of Nammin is better than the one that sounds in the cartoon. Earlier, "my planet" talked about how to educate children in different countries.
Here is a hot summer
This summer was extremely hot on the territory of Europe. Even in Finland, from Helsinki to Rovaniemi himself, people suffered from heat and as many as possible went to the beaches. However, they had to share the coast with unexpected neighbors – with reindeers (see also, as they live with deer representatives of nomadic tribes)! In general, a significant part of the territory of Finland is located behind the northern polar circle. At the same time in the country all four times of the year they differ sharply from each other: the summer is very warm, and in the winter they can hit the strong frosts. However, the average temperature in Helsinki in July is only +17.2 ° C, and in January -4.2 ° C.
Admire the demonstration performances during the shooting competition from the traditional Japanese bow held in Tokyo this year. This ancient art is called "Cyouds" or "Cyuyutsu" ("Luke Way"). It was widespread in the Middle Ages in the nobility environment, as Luke and Arrows, along with the sword, were one of the leading types of weapons of Japanese warriors. Samurai considered their sacred weapons. Even in the Buddhist temples, the priests regularly practiced a shooting of onions in order to attract the masses. One of the most famous sanctors, where training was held, was the Sandseussangen-to ("33 compartment") in Kyoto. He had a long covered gallery, perfectly suitable for shooting. And still there is a special ritual of Meigen, during which the participants dressed in traditional archers, stretch the theater of their onions and released, produce a special low sound. It is believed that he scares demons and evil spirits. Magen is committed in important cases – for example, such as the birth of the Son of the Emperor. About other Japanese beliefs read in the material "My Planet".
Now in Japan, there are many schools that are taught by Cyudo and regular competitions are held regularly. At the same time, participants are assessed not only by the accuracy of shooting. All important: how they move, as breathing, how impeccable their posture and even how high their martial spirit (how to evaluate the latter, knows, apparently, only the harsh Japanese jury). And we must not forget that the speech of the arrow must be as beautiful as possible! Earlier, "my planet" told where in the world you can satisfy your desire to shoot from combat weapons, as well as about what you can not do in Japan.
Victims of gold fever
This is the sad sight of anyone who came to the port of San Francisco (USA) in 1850, during the Golden Fever Gold. The fact is that from 1848 thousands of people who are thickened by the Nazi, they went to California in Hope to get rich quickly. They threw everything left from past life. Unfortunately, not everyone was lucky. As a result of the court of unfortunate gold miners turned out to be thrown right in the port. Subsequently, they served material for the construction of many houses in the city.
Known exact date when gold fever began. It happened on January 24, 1848, when James in. Marshall found gold near the dashboard of the entrepreneur John Satter on the River Amerikhan River. As soon as the news has spread to California from all over the country and from abroad, about 300,000 people arrived. First gold kits became called "people of 49th". They went to the path on sailing ships and in commodity cars, often faced with a lot of difficulties on the road. In just a few years, San Francisco turned from a tiny settlement to a major city, and schools, hospitals, roads and churches were built in California. Agriculture went sharply. However, there were negative consequences: the gold kits caused serious harm to the environment, and the Indian tribes were crowded with the traditional lands for them. Modern gold detectors live in Guyana, you can find out in the material "My Planet".
Behind both cheeks
Admire with what appetite peanuts a little chipmunk will fly! One nut jumped over the left cheek, the second – for the right, and the third took into his teeth (because the place in the mouth ended)! In general, these cute animals belong to the genus of rodents from the Belichesky family. There are 25 of their 25 species, most of which live in North America and only one species – in Eurasia: Siberian, or Asian, Chipmunk. The our name of the animal was borrowed from the Tatar language (TAT. – Borynddyk). In addition, in the first half of the 20th century, the version was distributed that the word comes from the Mari Uromdok.
For the winter, the chipmunks fall into the hibernation (earlier we published the top 10 animals that sleep in the winter, and they told about how the bears hibernate). However, among the winter, they periodically wake up to eat, and then fall asleep again. To the process of creating stocks for the cold season, animals are very responsible! They fill their storerooms with a variety of products: acorns, nuts, apples, mushrooms, wheat, oats and t. D. At the same time, different types of food are never mixed with each other: rodent folds them with separate heaps on the litter of dry grass! And sometimes even separates some products from other dry leaves. In total, in the same hole, the chipmuncture can be kept up to 6 kg of food!
