Porque también nos gusta el arte, les traemos un poco de la historia de este cuadro, el cuadro “Saturno devorando a su hijo” o “Saturno devorando a un hijo” es una de las pinturas al óleo sobre revoco que formaron parte de la decoración de los muros de la casa que Francisco de Goya adquirió en 1819, llamada la Quinta del Sordo. Por tanto, la obra pertenece a la serie de las Pinturas negras de dicho artista. Junto con el resto de ellas, fue copiada de revoco a lienzo a partir de 1874 por Salvador Martínez Cubells, como había encargado el barón Émile d’Erlanger, un banquero francés de origen alemán, que tenía intención de venderlas en la Exposición Universal de París de 1878. En 1881, d’Erlanger las cedió al Estado español, que las destinó al Museo del Prado, donde se expusieron desde 1889.

Today's adventures. Me and Puppa ventured to Spitalfields to walk the same streets as our ancestors. I do alot of research on family and social history so this was like goals for me. The first picture is the very church that my great great great great great great great great grandfather and mother were married. We don't have a specific place that they would have lived but we wandered the area. It was heavily bombed in the war so whole roads were distroyed which makes it hard to trace. We did also discover that our ancestors came to London from Normandy! We went to the french church church and met a very chatty woman. She told us about where she had lived all across Europe. She then asked to sing me a song which she did with so much passion whilst holding my hands. Genuinely the weirdest experience of my life but interesting 😂 #london   #history   #hiddenlondon   #spitalfields   #family   #ancestors   #ancestory   #instaphotographers   #photography   #photo   #churches   #huguenots   #daytrip

Aotearoa is the Māori name for New Zealand. It was originally used by the Māori people in reference to only the North Island but, since the late 19th century, the word has come to refer to the country as a whole.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #maori   #kiaora   #culture   #nznative   #nzmaori   #history   #internationalculture   #exploringourglobe   #instatravel   #kiwi   #newzealand   #newzealandfinds   #newzealandguide   #nz   #nzmustdo   #queenstown   #languagelearning   #southisland   #nzhistory   #learnaboutnz   #travelphotgraphy   #wanaka   #wellington   #workingholidayvisa   #thekiwikit   #vanlife   #🥝   #nztourism   #nzadventure

With its marbled monuments and high-profile politicos, Washington, D.C., has long been saddled with a reputation as a stuffy government-driven town. A "city of southern efficiency and northern charm," You can choose a traditional D.C. adventure, filled with tours of classic attractions like the whitehouse and the Washington Monument, the  U.S. Capital and the  #Smithsonian   #National   Museum of  #Natural   History. And there's no better way to experience iconic D.C. than with a stroll around the Tidal Basin. Plan to visit in late March or early April – just in time for the National Cherry Blossom Festival – and you'll be rewarded with a canopy of beautiful pink blooms. But if you've already seen the national landmarks, get a feel for the city's more youthful ambiance, highlighted by its urban neighborhoods, marquee art galleries and vibrant farmers markets. . . . #blogger   #washingtondc   #landscape   #beauty   #world   #travelguide   #cherry   #blossom   #snowfall   #winter   #beach   #beauty   #beautifulplaces   #travelphotography   #travel   #washingtonmonument

The concept of treating everyone with the same approach and the same pharmaceutical (or herbal) medications does not agree with me. ⁠ ⁠ When the insurance dictates what I should and should not order and how I should code it - also does not agree with me! ⁠ ⁠ For example, I listed ICD-10 code for Vitamin D deficiency for one of my patients and ordered Vitamin D test. Hmm, 4 weeks later I get a note from the patient's insurance company that this code will not be covered and I should code it as something else... ⁠ ⁠ Let's see what something else would be covered!⁠ - Rickets?⁠ - Cancer diagnosis?⁠ - Hypercalcemia?⁠ ⁠ And the list goes on, but, unfortunately, this patient HAS Vitamin D deficiency, but no rickets and, thus, the patient's insurance dictates me what to order and what will be or will not be covered. ⁠ ⁠ Hello, the Soviet Union, where I was born and where everyone was treated the same with the same approach, no matter what the disease was. Headache, flu, cold, pneumonia - here is your aspirin. Go get better! ⁠ ⁠ Literally, back to USSR here, in the U.S.⁠ ⁠ #guthealthmatters   #antiinflammatorydiet   #functionalnutrition   #healing   #guthealth   #functionalmedicine   #thyroid   #thyroidproblems   #hashimotodisease   #hashimotoswarrior   #fxmed   #health   #healthylifestyle   #guthealing   #leakygut   #inflammation   #rootcause   #nutrition   #sproutshealth   #paleorecipes   #paleodiet   #aip   #mesaaz   #gilbertaz   #chandleraz   #health   #wellness   #immigration   #ussr   #history  

Only one time - have I found an entire collection of nineteenth century hand carved cameos that were actually created to tell a family’s story. All of these exquisitely carved pieces were uncovered at an Italian country estate in early 2017. Each treasured cameo has story of significance to them. I wanted to honor this collection in a most special way by keeping them together just as they were meant to be.

Motorcycle Monday! Since the passing of Peter Fonda, we’re reminded of (arguably) the most iconic and influential motorcycles ever built, the “Captain America” and “Billy” bikes from Easy Rider. Sadly, the men who designed and built these bikes have received little to no recognition for their work. I want to take a moment to honor two of the most badass Chopper builders to ever swing a leg over two wheels, Ben Hardy and Cliff Vaughs. Ben Hardy was known as the “King of Bikes” and it’s a crime that he isn’t widely recognized for his legacy. Let’s blow up their names and achievements as much as the actors that rode these masterpieces. #bennyhardy   #benhardy   #benhardyeasyrider   #kingofbikes   #cliffvaughs   #cliffvaughseasyrider   #chosenfew   #chosenfewmc   #choppers   #givecreditwherecreditisdue   #blackmotorcyclebuilders   #historyofthechopper   #jessejames   #blackchrome   #knowyourhistory   #chopperhistory   #easyrider   #peterfonda   #captainamerica   #panhead   #dennishopper   #billy   #jacknicholson   #footballhelmet   #motorcycles   #history   #knowledgeispower   #knowledgereignssupreme   #themoreyouknow   #motorcyclemonday  

Как царская семья отдыхала на яхте "Штандарт". _ Обычно в хорошую погоду Николай II с дочерьми совершал долгие прогулки по лесам и полям. Счастливые, полные впечатлений путешественники возвращались на яхту к полуденному чаю, который пили с родителями на верхней палубе под марши, исполняемые духовым оркестром, и виртуозную игру балалаечников. _ На борту «Штандарта» Николай II не освобождал себя от официальных обязанностей. График ежегодного июньского двухнедельного отпуска на яхте император выстраивал следующим образом: два дня в неделю он работал, пять — отдыхал. Во время отдыха на яхту было запрещено подниматься министрам и высоким чинам тайной полиции. Особо важные донесения, документы и прессу на «Штандарт» ежедневно доставлял из Санкт-Петербурга курьерский катер. _ Когда дочери императора были маленькими, к каждой из них был прикреплён матрос-нянька, на языке моряков «Штандарта» — дядька, который следил, чтобы доверенный ему ребёнок, заигравшись, не упал за борт. Когда девушки подросли, им было предоставлено право "сасостоятельно" купаться. Однако дядьки все равно пристально следили за каждым их шагом, пусть уже и не так навязчиво. _ Иногда «Штандарт» бросал якорь у богатых владений. Владельцы, проснувшись, могли увидеть у дверей своего дома императора, вежливо спрашивающего разрешение поиграть на их кортах в теннис. _ Плавание на «Штандарте» у берегов Финляндии в 1907 году едва не закончилось катастрофой. Вот описание этого события, сделанное Робертом Мэсси: «Яхта выходила узким проливом в открытое море. Пассажиры сидели на палубе. Внезапно с оглушительным треском яхта ударилась о подводную скалу. Вода устремилась в трюм, «Штандарт» накренился и стал оседать. В этот момент не оказалось трёхлетнего цесаревича, и оба родителя просто обезумели от горя. Оказалось, что матрос-нянька Деревенько при ударе о скалу схватил Алексея на руки и перенес его на нос яхты, т.к. с этой части судна ему будет легче спасать наследника при полной гибели яхты. Однако благодаря своим герметичным переборкам яхта не затонула. И позднее была отремонтирована». _ #николай2   #императорскаясемья   #императорскаяроссия   #историяегэ   #история   #историяроссии   #historyfacts   #history

Making history! Just witnessed Assembly Bill 392 enacted by Governor Newsom! - - - #California   #Law   #AssemblyBill392   #History   #CaLoveFornia   #Sacramento   #MakingHistory  

It was Palm Sunday March 21, 1937. Men, women and children arrived from all over the island, dressed in their Sunday finest, waving palm fronds at each other. A five-piece band started playing La Borinqueña (the Puerto Rican national anthem) as the peaceful march began. And then a shot rang out . Everyone tried to run in all directions – but they couldn’t escape because two hundred policemen with Tommy guns and rifles were stationed all around them. They blocked every escape route, and created a killing zone. Then they started firing. The police shot for thirteen minutes. By the time they finished  seventeen men, one woman and a 7-year old girl were dead, dozens were maimed for life, and over two hundred more were gravely wounded – moaning, crawling, bleeding, begging for mercy in the street. A doctor from a local hospital, José A. Gándara, testified that many of the wounded he’d seen – including women and children – had been shot in the back. Ever island newspaper, especially El Imparcial and El Mundo, ran photos of the scene: showing walls and buildings pockmarked from all the machine gun fire. When there was no one left to shoot, the Police Chief did some quick  thinking. He noticed that a cameraman from El Mundo, Ángel Lebrón Robles, was running all over the street photographing everything. He also noticed a police officer, Eusebio Sánchez Pérez, who had been killed by their own machine gunfire. Orbeta called over the El Mundo photographer, plus several of his men, and staged a series of “live action” photos to show that the police were ”returning fire” from Nationalists who were, at this point, lying dead in the street. The transparent ruse did not work. Every island newspaper reported that there was no one to “exchange fire” with."This was a Massacre" ‼️ #poncemassacre   #history   #didyouknow   #puertorico   #🇵🇷   #knowledgeispower   #101   #gaintrick   #PuertoRicoUprising   #migente   #whattheydidntteachyouinschool   #education   #culture   #boriken   #psalmsunday   #waragainstallpuertoricans   #Boricua   #needtoknow   #informative   #information   #somosmas   #fortheculture   #preserveourhistory  

Церковь Святого Николая Чудотворца в городе Демре (древняя Мира). Город Демре получил свою широкую известность главным образом благодаря тому, что здесь находится церковь Святого Николая Чудотворца. Она считается третьим по важности религиозным сооружением византийской архитектуры на Востоке. В том виде, в каком мы видим церковь сейчас, она была построена в начале VI в. на месте  древнего храма богини Артемиды. Несмотря на свой очень древний возраст, в церкви прекрасно сохранились настенные фрески и росписи XI и XII веков, который придают помещению совершенно необыкновенный вид. Пол вымощен очень интересной мозаикой из разных видов камня. Считается, что эта мозаика была уже в том древнем храме и существовала еще до того, как в Демре пришел Николай Чудотворец.. #архитектура   #церковь   #руины   #музей   #церковьсвятогониколая   #историческиеместа   #история   #религии   #древнийгород   #мира   #демре   #турция   #путешествие   #достопримечательноститурции   #myra   #demre   #turkey   #travel   #church   #architecture   #history   #historycalplace   #historyarchitecture   #museum   #religion   #travellingram   #travelshots   #ruins
