Timeline of metal processes, heat treatments, surface technology - Bodycote Puabi (commonly labelled Queen Puabi) was an important person in the Sumerian city of Ur, during the First Dynasty of Ur. A gold goblet with a double-walled vessel made for her was found in her tomb. Brazed with an alloy of 25% silver, the gold was called ‘electrum’. Gold brazing was known and skilfully practiced by the Sumerians, the first civilisation in the history of man in the 3rd century BC. The goblet, created for Puabi, was found still filled with green eye paint in the Cemetery of Ur (in modern day Iraq) by Sir Leonard Woolley between 1922 and 1934, and is one of the earliest surviving examples of a brazed joint. The upper portion is double-walled and the brazed joint is made around the periphery. Other examples of early brazing include drinking vessels with handles attached to the body using a brazing technique originating in Troy around 2200 BC. Brazing on a larger scale is undertaken in furnaces.

METODA MONTESSORI La inceputul anilor 1900, dr. Maria Montessori a elaborat aceasta metoda educationala, pe baza observatiilor sale stiintifice asupra comportamentului copiilor. Avand cunostinte solide in materie de pedagogie, antropologie si psihiatrie, ea a dezvoltat ideea ca fiecare copil se naste cu un potential unic ce trebuie valorificat, copilul nefiind doar un “vas gol” care asteapta sa fie umplut. Astfel a luat fiinta o metoda de auto-educatie si dezvoltare care se bucura de recunoastere in toata lumea. Modelului pedagogic Montessori pune copilul in centru. Acest sistem atribuie copiilor anumite responsabilitati si ii ajuta sa isi dezvolte stilul personal de acumulare a cunostintelor, timp in care educatorii actioneaza ca un ghid care le incurajeaza si le faciliteaza actiunile. Educatorul este, desigur, o parte foarte importanta a acestui proces. Educatorii Montessori sunt pregatiti professional pentru aceasta metoda si utilizeaza materiale Montessori special create.
14 Exceptional Weapon Designs From History You Should Know About The scope of ‘hi-tech’ designs is not just limited to our modern affairs.

So, without further ado, let us take a gander at fourteen such advanced weapon systems from history that were surely far ahead of their time. *Please note – By ‘designs’ we have also taken into account the conceptual designs that were conceived by military engineers throughout history. 1) Gastraphetes (probably invented in late 5th century BC) – Literally translated to “belly-releaser”, the Gastraphetes was an ancient handheld crossbow-like mechanism described and drawn in a detailed manner in Heron of Alexandria’s compiled Belopoeica.
