bigthink There are only two events in the universe that defy the laws of physics: black holes and the big bang, and while scientists try to explain them, crucial evidence may be eaten up in the meantime. Christophe Galfard's book is "The Universe in Your Hand A Journey Through Space, Time, and Beyond" ( Read more at Follow Big Think here:YouTube: Transcript - The interesting thing about trying to unravel the laws of nature is that yes, we have found some laws. For a long time gravity has told us that nothing can escape the gravitational grip of a black hole. And everything we had known about black holes until the mid-1970s was only related to gravity.

Legends profile: John Stockton Some play a position exquisitely, just as it was designed. That would be John Stockton at point guard. A fast, gritty, durable player who saw the floor as well as anyone who ever played the game, he left the NBA after 19 seasons with the Utah Jazz, holding a mass of assists records, including the career mark (15,806). As Stockton giveth, he taketh away: He led the league in steals twice and, with a career total of 3,265, he retired as the NBA's all-time leader. "There absolutely, positively, will never ever be another John Stockton -- ever," said Karl Malone, Stockton's teammate for 18 seasons. The Jazz never missed the playoffs during Stockton's career and they reached the Western Conference finals five times in a seven-year span. Utah went to consecutive NBA Finals, losing to the Chicago Bulls in six games in 1997 and 1998. "A lot of this is about the journey," he said. Stockton did it all without fanfare. "I haven't changed a thing. Stockton's apprenticeship was over -- almost.

Quilling - Turning Paper Strips into Intricate Artworks Quilling has been around for hundreds of years, but it’s still as impressive and popular now as it was during the Renaissance. The art of quilling first became popular during the Renaissance, when nuns and monks would use it to roll gold-gilded paper and decorate religious objects, as an alternative to the expensive gold filigree. Later, during the 18th and 19th centuries, it became a favorite pass-time of English ladies who created wonderful decorations for their furniture and candles, through quilling. Basically, the quilling process consists of cutting strips of paper, and rolling them with a special tool. Because it requires so few supplies, quilling is available to anyone with enough patience to give it a try, and with a little bit of practice you’ll be creating some pretty amazing paper artworks, just like iron-maiden-art, whose works I think show the beauty of quilling.

Будущее Охтинского мыса Предложения к проекту историко-ландшафтного парка и археологического музея на Охтинском мысу На Охтинском мысу обнаружен целый «слоеный пирог» из памятников разных эпох: • Стоянки людей эпохи неолита – раннего метала (II –I тыс. до н.э.); • Рвы новгородской крепости; • Крепость Ландскрона (1300–1301 гг.); • Крепость Ниеншанц двух периодов (1611–1703 гг.); • Могильник XVI–XVII вв.Эти памятники позволяют наглядно представить историю Петербурга «до Петербурга», увидеть, как велась борьба за эти земли, как строили, торговали, воевали наши предки и их северные соседи. Это своего рода машина времени, которая позволяет век за веком проследить историю петербургской земли. Дерево-земляные крепости и их руины сохраняются во многих городах. Крепость Буртанге в Голландии – один из примеров такого рода. Далеко не во всех средневековых крепостях устроены музеи. Музеи под открытым небом, ландшафтные парки – средоточие культурной жизни города или района. Скачать брошюру (PDF, 1 Мб) Е.
