2007-11-26 20:25:00
Claude Oscar Monet was born in Paris (France) in the year 1840. Since he was very young he was deeply interested in art. When he was 15 years old, he did an amateur exposition in a store in "El Havre" with some drafts.Eugene Boudin was pleasantly amazed with those drafts, and offered himself to be his teacher. Monet agreed with pleasure.Even with the opposition of his father, that hated the idea of his son being an artist, he kept on following his dreams. He had to serve for two years in a military regiment in Algeria. After this, he went to Paris to study painting. There, he met Renoir, Sisley, Bazille... painters like him that became his friends.These artists, with Monet, became great symbols of the impressionist art.These group of impressionist painters had to fight against those others that preferred a more traditional art. They used to gather in the cafe Guerbois, where they shared ideas, experiences...In the past, the painters did the drafts outdoors, and finished their artw...

The Wolf And The DogOne day, the wolf approached a dog that was guarding the sheep, and said: "Don't be afraid, I won't take any sheep. I just want to know how pleasant is your job".The dog told him: "Not bad. I just have to care the sheep, and praise my owner. So he gives me some bones, and even the leftovers of what he eats!"The wolf stared at the dog. He was big and stout. However, the wolf was hungry and very thin."Not a bad job at all" -said the wolf- "And what's that thing you are wearing in the neck?""It's a collar. It's for tying me.""For tying you? Do they tie you? And can't you run free?", asked the wolf."Run? Where to? And what for?"The wolf said goodbye to the dog. And ran free through the forest, feeling the wind and smelling the country flowers. Then, he remembered the dog, and felt sorry for him.The Wolf And The MotherThe wolf saw the farmer getting away from his house. And thought "This is the chance to get close and try to steal some food".He approached the h...

Norwegian Fjords' Beautiful Landscapes
2007-11-18 19:23:00
In those places where cold is very intense, the ice that was formed in winter is not melted in summer. So the ice accumulates in the mountains in big amounts.Its own weight makes this ice roll down the mountain, like true ice rivers. This is called a glacier.Sometimes this glacier continues advancing towards the valleys nearby to the sea. These glaciers, by their own strength, dig the earth on their way, until they reach the sea. Salt water melts these ice rivers. When the entire glacier gets melted, results in a valley flooded by water, surrounded by mountains that are incredibly sculpted with awesome shapes.This is called a fjord.In Norway there are many fjords. In fact, it has the second biggest fjord in the world: Sognefjord. This one reaches a maximum depth of 4,291 ft under the sea level.Some Norwegian fjords are so rough and dangerous that the Norwegians needed to tie their livestock to avoid them falling to the abyss accidentally.The lands that surround the fjords are very f...

Beowulf, Epic Hero, From Comic To Movies
2007-11-15 20:58:00
Beowulf is an epic poem, of unknown author. The poem had no title, until the XIX century, when it is called Beowulf. This poem mixes real elements with fictitious. It's written in England, but it's about Scandinavian. Was diffused through oral tradition.And as a curiosity, Tolkien liked this epic poem very much.The epic poem is about the adventures of Beowulf, a brave warrior.Beowulf was nephew of the king Hygelac. Amongst other heroic actions, he showed a big bravery in the battles against the Swedish.His first great feat was in a fight against Breka, a noble from the Hygelac court. Breka and Beowulf were fighting for five days in the sea, until the sea separated them. Breca could arrive to the coast, but Beowulf hadn't the same luck, and was fighting with marine monsters. But he was victorious. When he went to see the king, Hygelac gave him a present: the sword Nageling.Another heroic action was to defeat the terrible monster Grendel.Grendel was a terrible threat for his villa...

Pegasus,The Winged Horse Of The Skies
2007-11-11 19:52:00
Poseidon seduced Medusa in the Athena's temple. Athena got angry for this desecration, so she cursed Medusa. She turned her hair into snakes, and all those who dare to look at her eyes would be turned into stone.Perseus, Greek hero, searched for Medusa as he needed his head to defeat the marine monster called Ceto. This monster was so strong that the only way to beat it was showing it the head of Medusa, so it will be petrified.Perseus cut the head of Medussa off. And Pegasus emerged from her spilled blood.Pegasus is depicted as a gorgeous white winged horse that rides across the sky. According to the legend, where it passed, water gushed out. This is because Pegasus is symbolic descendant of Poseidon, who is not only the God of Oceans, but also of the rivers, fountains, lakes...It was said that Pegasus lived in the mount Helicon, until the Greek hero Bellerophonwent to capture him.Bellerophon needed Pegasus to carry him flying to the Olympus, where the Gods lived.Zeus realized thi...

The Curse Of Tutankhamun
2007-11-08 18:52:00
The origin of Tutankhamun is doubtful. There are two theories, one of them is that Tutankhamun could be son of Akhenaten (husband of Nefertiti). The other is that he could be son of Amenhotep III and his own daughter: Sitamun.When Tutankhamun was crowned pharaoh (at ten years old), the cult to Aton was abandoned. During his reign he ordered to repair many temples. Thus, many statues dedicated to God Amun have the face of Tutankhamun. Tutankhamun died at 19 years old. There are many hypothesis about his death but none of them definitive.In 1922 Howard Carter and Lord Carnavan discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun in the Valley of the Kings. They commanded an expedition that entered the tomb of the pharaoh.When the last man of that expedition returned to the surface, a big sand storm started, preceded by a hawk (symbol of the royal emblem of the ancient Egypt). The falcon flew to the west, that in the ancient Egyptians beliefs was the direction to the Other World.Here starts what was cal...

Vampirism And The Real Dracula. (Last Part)
2007-10-28 19:42:00
As I commented in the previous article, the belief in vampires is more ancient that we could imagine. So we can find stories about vampires in the ancient Mesopotamia (Utuhu and Maskin, monstrous beings that brought diseases to the people).In the Egyptian culture there was the deity Sekhmet (appears in the "Book of the Dead" many times). In India, there is Kali-Ma, who fed on blood. There are stories about vampires in the ancient Greece and Rome. In the Aztec culture, Civataeo fed on blood and brought the disease. There's even a vampire story in the "One Thousand and One Night".So we can notice that the belief in vampires is really ancient and is present in all cultures.Although vampirism may be surrounded by supernatural details, it may be based in something as real as two serious diseases: porphyria and rabies.Rabies is transmitted by the bite of dogs, wolves, rats and bats. All those animals are associated with the vampires. It is said that vampires can shapeshift with bats and ...

The Symbol Of The Dragon
2007-10-23 20:53:00
The word dragon comes from the Latin word "draco" and the Greek word "drakon" that means snake or viper snake.It's a fabulous animal and a symbolic universal figure.The dragon is present in most of the cultures of the world. In the ancient Oriental cultures as well as in the Westerner.The ethnologists Alexander Haggerty Krappe ("La genese des Mythes"), told that the dragon figure could come from the shock of discovering remains of prehistoric animals.In all the cultures the dragon has a important symbolic nature. Depending on the shape of the depicted dragon, the meaning may vary. Thus, the multi-headed dragon has a strong adverse meaning. The dragon that bites its own tail symbolizes the "Eternal Return", and has been depicted many times in emblems and shields. The symbol of the dragon was very usual in Alchemy.Colors may vary the meaning of the dragon: a red dragon is the guardian of science, and a white one is a lunar dragon. In the Eastern, a black dragon symbolizes the North, ...

Kalahari Desert, A Full Of Life Place
2007-10-10 22:30:00
The Kalahari Desert covers Botswana, Namibia and South Africa. The Kalahari comprises 900 square kilometers. Its name comes from the word in Twsana language "Kglagadi", that means "big thirst".Although it's called Kalahari Desert, it's not really a desert. Why? Because it receives 250 mm of rainfall. Only places where the rainfall is lesser than this are considered deserts. So, actually, it's a semi-arid and sandy area.In a distant past, what nowadays is the Kalahari, was a big lake. So it's not estrange the big amount of fossils that can be found in this zone.Despite the bad climate conditions and the lack of water, the Kalahari shelters a big amount of animals and plants. Amongst the Kalahari's fauna it can be found the Kalahari antelope, which adapts very well to its medium, as it doesn't need water. It finds the liquid it needs to survive in the vegetables that it feeds of. Other animals include the black rhinoceros, hyenas, lions, birds, reptiles...The most popular animal...
