Ashoka Maurya (IAST: Aśoka; /əˈʃoʊkə/; 304–232 BCE), commonly known as Ashoka[4] and Ashoka the Great, was an Indian emperor of the Maurya Dynasty who ruled almost all of the Indian subcontinent from c. 268 to 232 BCE.[5] One of India's greatest emperors, Ashoka reigned over a realm that stretched from the Hindu Kush mountains in Afghanistan to the modern state of Bangladesh in the east. It covered the entire Indian subcontinent except parts of present-day Tamil Nadu and Kerala.

The empire's capital was Pataliputra (in Magadha, present-day Bihar), with provincial capitals at Taxila and Ujjain. Ashoka's name "Aśoka" means "painless, without sorrow" in Sanskrit (the a privativum and śoka "pain, distress"). In his edicts, he is referred to as Devānāmpriya (Pali Devānaṃpiya or "The Beloved of the Gods"), and Priyadarśin (Pali Piyadasī or "He who regards everyone with affection").

"The Hearse Song" is a song about burial and human decomposition, of unknown origin. It was popular as a World War I song, and was popular in the 20th century as an American and British children's song, continuing to the present. It has many variant titles, lyrics, and melodies,[1] but generally features the line "the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out", and thus is also known as "The Worms Crawl In".[2] History[edit] While there are reports of the song dating back to British soldiers in the Crimean War (1853-1856), it certainly dates to at least World War I (1914-1918), when it was sung by American and British soldiers,[4] and was collected in various World War I songbooks of the 1920s. "Don't you ever laugh as the hearse goes by, For you may be the next one to die.

Career[edit] Theatre[edit] Popular success[edit] Notes. Amulets, Talismans, & Charms. When I was writing Amulets and Talismans for Beginners, a friend commented that it would have to be of historic interest only, as no one used them nowadays. He hadn’t noticed all the people who wear astrological pendants, ankhs, St. Christopher medals, and a variety of other charms and amulets. Recently, a funeral director told me that he had noticed a large increase in the number of people who were buried with their favorite amulets and lucky charms. All around the world, the number of people who wear charms and amulets is steadily increasing. There is some confusion about lucky charms, amulets, and talismans, and many people think they are synonyms.

LUCKY CHARMS Charms were originally spoken or sung. Almost anything can (and has been) used as a charm. Lucky charms are normally carried on the person, but there are exceptions. A four-leaf clover has always been considered a lucky charm. A number of lucky charms have religious significance. Take your time when choosing an amulet. 1. The Fairy Faith: An Ancient Indigenous European Religion. By Carolyn Emerick Fairies Looking Through A Gothic Arch, by John Anster Fitzgerald – 19th century There are two different meanings to the term “Fairy Faith.”

On one hand, it simply refers to the old folkloric belief in fairies, and the practices found therein. This meaning is usually ascribed to the modern Celtic nations of Ireland and Scotland, where belief in fairies lingered long into the modern era. In this sense, it is analogous to other places where belief in fairy-like creatures continued even into the present day, such as in Iceland and even in some Native American or Canadian First Nations traditions. The second meaning is found in the modern neo-pagan community. It seems that the neo-pagan Fairy Faith sprung from the Wiccan community somewhere around the 1970s in California. Origins of Fairy Belief The modern notion of fairy vastly different from that which our ancestors knew, and even antiquated descriptions vary widely.

Multiple round bumps on cell surface represent sites of assembly and budding of virions. Bugchasers indicate various reasons for this activity. Some bugchasers engage in the activity for the excitement and intimacy inherent in pursuing such a dangerous activity, but do not implicitly desire to contract HIV.[1][2] Some researchers suggest that the behavior may stem from a "resistance to dominant heterosexual norms and mores" due to a defensive response by gay men to repudiate stigmatization and rejection by society.[2] Some people consider bugchasing "intensely erotic" and the act of being infected as the "ultimate taboo, the most extreme sex act left Others have suggested that some people who feel lonely desire the nurturing community and social services that support people with HIV/AIDS.[2] It has also been used as a form of suicide.[4][5] Aspects[edit] Research[edit] Dr.

It is a branch of the science of horticulture. While the native territory of Vitis vinifera, the common grape vine, ranges from Western Europe to the Persian shores of the Caspian Sea, the vine has demonstrated high levels of adaptability to new environments; thus, viticulture can be found on every continent except Antarctica.[1] History[edit] Evidence of ancient viticulture is provided by cuneiform sources (ancient writing on clay tablets), plant remains, historical geography, and archaeological excavations.[9] The remnants of ancient wine jars have been used to determine the culture of wine consumption and cultivated grape species.[10] In addition to winemaking, grapes have been grown for the production of raisins.[11] At the end of the 5th century BC, the Greek historian Thucydides wrote: Roman[edit] Medieval[edit] In mythology[edit] The grape vine[edit] The grape[edit] 39.

Untitled. 589.6K Shares Share Tweet Email A relatively new breed of “wolf cats” will surely interest animal lovers this Halloween for their werewolf-like appearance. They are called Lykoi cats, and they possess a natural mutation that gives them the appearance of a scruffy-looking little wolf. Lykoi, which comes from the Greek word for wolf, are a fairly recent breed of cat that first appeared in 2010 and were bred by veterinarian Johnny Gobble and his wife Brittney. Gobble’s colleague, Patti Thomas, came up with the name after the first litter was presented to her. “Our founding cats come from two unrelated litters. “The Lykoi Cat’s name was the inspiration of Patti. Because of a naturally occurring mutation found in black domestic shorthairs, Lykoi cats have no hair around the eyes, nose, ears and muzzle and go through periods of patchy hair throughout their lives. Gobble explained: “Our cardiologist also performed cardiac scans to look for any structural problems with the hearts.
