  • On this day in March, 1945, Captain Lewis Nixon, of 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, parachuted with the U.S 17th Airborne Division as part of the Allies' Operation Varsity.
Operation Varsity was the largest airborne operation in history to be conducted on one day and in one place. It involved over 16,000 paratroopers and glider troops of the U.S 17th Airborne and the British 6th Airborne (including 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion paratroopers), and thousands of aircraft. The armada stretched over 200 miles and took 2 hours and 37 minutes to pass any given point. Over 2,100 fighter planes escorted to protect the carrier aircraft. 
Varsity was a part of Operation Plunder, an Allied mission of crossing the river Rhine into Germany.
The objective of Varsity was to drop airborne troops on the east of the river to aid the ground troops in their crossing of the Rhine. 
The operation was concluded a success. At 10am the Airborne troops began landing on German soil, about 13 hours after the main ground assault began. They captured all objectives and the ground troops were able to advance.

  • Zeus by Phidias, illustration from the Archaeological Museum of Olympia (Greece).
The chryselephantine statue of Zeus, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, was created by Pheidias in c. 430 BC. The statue, believed to have been over twelve metres high, is described by Pausanias and depicted on ancient coins. It portrayed Zeus enthroned, holding a sceptre in his left hand and a winged Victory in his right. The undraped parts of the statue were of ivory, while the robe and throne, the latter decorated with relief mythological scenes, were of gold. After the abolition of the Olympic Games, the statue was carried off to Constantinople where it perished in a fire in 475 AD.

La statua crisoelefantina di Zeus, una delle sette meraviglie del mondo antico, fu creata da Fidia nel 430 a.C. circa. La statua, che si ritiene superasse i dodici metri di altezza, è descritta da Pausania e raffigurata su monete antiche. Ritraeva Zeus in trono, con uno scettro nella mano sinistra e una Vittoria alata alla sua destra. Le parti non tagliate della statua erano di avorio, mentre la veste e il trono, quest'ultimo decorato con scene mitologiche in rilievo, erano d'oro. Dopo l'abolizione dei Giochi Olimpici, la statua fu portata a Costantinopoli dove perì in un incendio nel 475 d.C.

Vakil Abad Park, Mashhad,Iran

پارک وکیل آباد، مشهد

عکس از @mahyarmotebassem
پارک وکیل آباد که بیش از ۷۰ هکتار است و جزء یکی از بزرگترین ییلاقات عمومی شهر مشهد محسوب می‌گردد، از دیرباز بعنوان یکی از پارکهای بزرگ و قدیمی مشهد شمرده میشود. این پارک جنگلی زیبا و چشم نواز به علت دارا بودن درختان کهنسالی همچون کاج، چنار ، سرو و همچنین قرارگیری در منطقه ای خوش آب و هوا در مشهد و جاری بودن نهرهای گوناگون و رودخانه فصلی در مسیر این پارک، مورد توجه زائرین و مجاورین شهر مقدس مشهد است. در گذشته پارک جنگلی وکیل آباد را با نام های همچون میرطراز یا باغ وکیل آباد می شناختند. این پارک توسط واقف خود حاج آقای حسین ملک التجار، در سال ۱۳۴۸ هجری شمسی، وقف عموم مردم گردید و به شهرداری واگذار شد.

  • Yine bir heyecanlı seyehatlerimden birisi olan : Antik ve Efsanelerın şehiri Atina, Attika - Yunanistan 🇬🇷
5 Milyon nüfusu ile Yunanistan'nin hemen hemen 11 Milyon'luk ülke nüfusunu yarisini kaplamakta. 
Ülkenin siyasi- finans- tarih -kültür -spor -  müzik ve tüm etkinliklerin görülmeye değer başkenti Atina..
Ve tabiki ülkenin ve şehirin en vazgeçilmez efsane değeri Akropoli: 
Araştırmalara göre mimari yapilanması yaklaşik millatan 450 yil evele dayanmakta.  Parthenon tapınağı Helen ve Atinalilarin perslilere karşi olan savaşta, zaferlerı için Şehirtanrısı Athene tarafindan kurulmuştur. 2500 yillik Akropoli ; 1986 yilinda UNESCO Dünya Kültürel Miras Listesine alınmiştır.
Bugüne dek dünyanin en eski ve efsane yapıtlarindan biridir Akropoli ve kesinlikle görülmeye değer..🏛 Ege'li olarak bana memleketimi aratmadi; insanlarin sicak kanlılığı, misafir perveklikleri, yemek ve müzik kültürleri, hayat dolu sokaklari, neşeli laika müzikli taverna'lari görülmeye değer harikalardan biri. Souflaki 🍖🍟 , Gyros 🌮🌯🍟 ,Ouzo 🥛, Yunan Yoğurdu 🍧 , Yunan Caciği ( Tzaziki) , Zeytini ve Zeytinyaği, Yunan Şarabi🍷ülkenin en meşhur enfes tatlarindan bir kaçtanesidir.
Türk 🇹🇷 - 🇬🇷 Yunan dostluğuna kalbimle inaniyorum, zamanin siyaset adamlari, halkların osmanli imparatorluğunda yaklaşik 600 yil beraber büyüduğü, yaşadiği, güldüğü, ağladiği, eğlendiği, paylaştiği ; yemek kültüründen tutup müziğine, emosyonal tavırlarina kadar benziyoruz siyasetcilerin kendi aralarinda yaptiği kavgayi asla ve asla halklari kişkırtarak birbirine katmamalı.. Birbirine saygi ve sevgi duymali...
Şehirin en merkez yerleri: Akropolis, Syntagma - Meydani, Monastiraki, Agora, Plaka , Gazi ve tabi biraz şehir dişinda olan meşhur limani ile Pire (Piräus). Herşey için teşekkürler için teşekkürler Ελλάδα🇬🇷 ve birgün elbet görüşmek üzere, Atina..🏛🧿 #athens

  • Today i participate in a directed law of the psychiatrist Arnset Rudin .
This has taught me do much about  how evil and cruel the society back then was and how evil its still today.
Today in democratic societies we may not "kill" people who are different than the supreme race but we do that in a different way.
We first judge them without any knowledge about them and tgen chose to act differently towards them and make them feel unwanted and not belong .
This feeling kills from the inside and tears down those people that later become mentally ill and at the worst part committe suicide
Moreover in more radical society yes even democratic those people are being killed .
And its all starts here from inside of us . How we see people and how we behave in a society can lead to a change . don't forget that those who were different and stood up for the justice become the leaders and revolution makers .
So if you want to change the world starts by changing yourself  you are an example even if not always seen people notice the differents first even if they don't pay attention to you you are still heard.
Thank you

  • To Tell the Truth Freely: The Life of Ida B. Wells by Mia Bay
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
.

Ida B. Wells story is so under-rated. Growing up, I heard very little about Ida B. Wells but her story is definitely a must-read. She fought in times when women didn't even have a voice and rights. She fought for justice for both people of color and women. She build and helped build some of the biggest organizations that are still around for people of color and women today. She did all this while raising a family. Reading this, I was shocked about the lack of credit and support she received then and quite honestly it upset me but here we are now reading and hearing her words, words of her daughter, and Mia Bay's. Mia Bay did her justice. Again, I recommend this book, to women, women of color, and everyone.
