The following is a list of gods and other divine and semi-divine figures from Greek mythology . The list does not include creatures; for these, see List of Greek mythological creatures . Immortals The Greeks created images of their deities for many purposes. A temple would house the statue of a god or goddess, or multiple deities, and might be decorated with relief scenes depicting myths. Divine images were common on coins.
Dionysus pron.: / d aɪ . ə ˈ n aɪ s ə s / ( Ancient Greek : Διόνυσος , Dionysos ) was the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine , of ritual madness and ecstasy in Greek mythology . His name in Linear B tablets shows he was worshipped from c. 1500—1100 BC by Mycenean Greeks : other traces of Dionysian-type cult have been found in ancient Minoan Crete . [ 2 ] His origins are uncertain, and his cults took many forms; some are described by ancient sources as Thracian, others as Greek. [ 3 ] [ 4 ] [ 5 ] In some cults, he arrives from the east, as an Asiatic foreigner; in others, from Ethiopia in the South. He is a god of epiphany , "the god that comes," and his "foreignness" as an arriving outsider-god may be inherent and essential to his cults. He is a major, popular figure of Greek mythology and religion , and is included in some lists of the twelve Olympians . Dionysus was the last god to be accepted into Mt.
Ares god of war is the son of Zeus and Hera and one of the twelve Olympians. His Roman name is Mars - although the Roman god is quite different. He was said to live in Thracia, a region where there were many warriors.
Aphrodite Greek goddess of love was the most beautiful among the Olympian goddesses. Her Roman name was Venus. (If you're in a hurry to see pictures of Aphrodite, you'll find some when you scroll down the page and others when you click here .) There are two versions about her birth. According to one of them, she was the daughter of Zeus and Dione.
Metabolism (from Greek : μεταβολή "metabolē", "change" or Greek : μεταβολισμός metabolismos , "outthrow") is the set of life -sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of living organisms . These enzyme -catalyzed reactions allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments. The word metabolism can also refer to all chemical reactions that occur in living organisms, including digestion and the transport of substances into and between different cells, in which case the set of reactions within the cells is called intermediary metabolism or intermediate metabolism . Metabolism is usually divided into two categories. Catabolism breaks down organic matter, for example to harvest energy in cellular respiration .
Quote: True. You also run into problems of specialization, because anatomical features that are good for one lift sometimes conflict with performance in other lifts. Lamar Gant , umpteen times world powerlifting champion in the 80s, was one of the great deadlifters of all times. He had long arms and scoliosis, so his spine would bend when he deadlifted and his range of motion in the deadlift was only six or eight inches.
Paul Edward Anderson (October 17, 1932 - August 15, 1994) was an American weightlifter , strongman , and powerlifter . He is an Olympic gold medalist, World Champion and two time National Champion in Olympic weightlifting. Anderson played a big part in the manifestation of powerlifting as a competitive sport. He is considered to be one of the strongest men in recorded history for his mostly unequaled feats of strength.
Anti-gravity is the idea of creating a place or object that is free from the force of gravity . It does not refer to the lack of weight under gravity experienced in free fall or orbit , or to balancing the force of gravity with some other force, such as electromagnetism or aerodynamic lift. Anti-gravity is a recurring concept in science fiction, particularly in the context of spacecraft propulsion . An early example is the gravity blocking substance " Cavorite " in H.
An electromagnetic field (also EMF or EM field ) is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects . It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. The electromagnetic field extends indefinitely throughout space and describes the electromagnetic interaction . It is one of the four fundamental forces of nature (the others are gravitation , the weak interaction , and the strong interaction ).
The electromagnetic waves that compose electromagnetic radiation can be imagined as a self-propagating transverse oscillating wave of electric and magnetic fields. This diagram shows a plane linearly polarized EMR wave propagating from left to right. The electric field is in a vertical plane and the magnetic field in a horizontal plane.
Silicone caulk can be used as a basic sealant against water and air penetration. Silicones are inert, synthetic compounds with a variety of forms and uses. Typically heat-resistant and rubber -like, they are used in sealants , adhesives , lubricants , medical applications , cookware, and insulation .
The end of World War II brought thousands of young servicemen back to America to pick up their lives and start new families in new homes with new jobs. With an energy never before experienced, American industry expanded to meet peacetime needs. Americans began buying goods not available during the war, which created corporate expansion and jobs. Growth everywhere.

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks (February 4, 1913 – October 24, 2005) was an African-American civil rights activist , whom the U.S. Congress called "the first lady of civil rights" and "the mother of the freedom movement". [ 1 ] Her birthday, February 4, and the day she was arrested, December 1, have both become Rosa Parks Day , commemorated in the U.S. states of California and Ohio. On December 1, 1955, in Montgomery, Alabama , Parks refused to obey bus driver James F.
Bereavement in Judaism ( Hebrew : אֲבֵלוּת , aveilut ; mourning) is a combination of minhag and mitzvah derived from Judaism 's classical Torah and rabbinic texts. The details of observance and practice vary according to each Jewish community.
