History of Mao

This huge biography of Mao, the work of a married couple formed by a writer and a historian, aims to present itself as an essential book about the founder of the Chinese communist regime. It is in terms of the documentation handled and the interviews conducted by the authors, although it has numerous literary features that try to delve into Mao’s psychology, which offers a portrait of a ruthless and thirsty leader of power.

Throughout these pages you can see the hand of Jung Chang, the author of Wild Swans , one of the most popular novels about Mao’s China. Chang suffered in his own flesh the humiliations of the Cultural Revolution, for which he had had a previous enthusiasm. Perhaps this book was born as an attempt to delve into the figure of the man who quickly modernized China without caring about the price of millions of lives. That same leader captivated the writer in her youth, although from that idealized image there is only one monster left who can sacrifice everyone, including her own family, for the sake of her personal ambition.

Chile’s secret history

Chile's historyI had an interest in the social aspect, in the ways that a person can contribute to their community and here I am, suddenly doing something that seems to make sense to many, helping to foster reflection on our past, our identity and our present through a noble vehicle: the history of this country, helping to build a bridge between our life as a country, our historians and ordinary people, like me, seems like a dream.
This is the balance that the writer Jorge Bardot (The interior war, Sync) makes of the last three years, in which he was dedicated almost exclusively to write the trilogy Secret History of Chile. An ambitious nonfiction work whose first two titles have sold 200 thousand copies to date; something completely atypical in a market like Chile. And that now closes with the arrival of the third installment to the national bookstores, with a first edition of 30 thousand copies, edited by Sudamericana.
A literary adventure that left no one indifferent and that more than once earned him harsh criticism. Some people do not understand that raising different points of view is not ‘destroy our values and our heroes’, but open the discussion, review and reflection on aspects not very touched massively and urgently need to be put on the table to understand each other better That there is a debt between our history and ordinary people, a distance that is urgent to shorten, says Baradit.History is political, it must be constantly discussed and reviewed, it is not written in marble and it is always changing with new research and discoveries, it is essential that it be on our contingent discussion table because it is finally reflected and it is about today, adds .

In A Quantum Universe, Even Mass Is Uncertain

Quantum UniverseIn the microscopic world of the quantum particle, there are certain rules that are wholly weird to us on the subject of the order of a macroscopic scale. If you take steps a particle’s slant and ask “where are you,” the more adroitly you learn the inflexible, you’ll fundamentally know its goings-on, or its innovation, less competently. Other properties, however, in imitation of electric engagement, remain perfectly adeptly-known at all time, regardless of what else you put-on. For purely stable particles, whether elementary or composite (including electrons and protons), accretion is one of those perfectly-known properties.

If you know the adding of one electron under one set of conditions, you know it for all electrons everywhere in the Universe. But this isn’t the stroke for all the particles we know of. The shorter-lived an unstable particle is, the more uncertain its growth is. This isn’t just a hypothesized effect, but rather one that’s been experimentally observed and verified for decades.

The Kaddish Prayer Of Death

KaddishWhy do Jews read grieving Kaddish at the funeral? Why do Jews read Kaddish, crying at a funeral? The Kaddish prayer of death is one of the most famous prayers during and after the burial service

It is important to remember that, like Catholics, we often criticize other religions, because we pray for the deceased. It is often overlooked that Christianity not only opened one day, its roots can be found in the Jewish religion and practice of the temple. The Jewish practice of praying for the dead can be found in the original Hebrew text of the Old Testament. Moreover, Jesus Christ, the founder of Christianity, came to this world as a Jew, and was raised and practiced the Jewish traditions according to 2 Mk 12: 44 because if I had not expected the fallen ones to rise, it would be futile and foolish to pray for them in death, the prayer for the resurrection of the dead was already accepted by Jewish practice.

Ancient people of Turkey worshiped the skulls

Ancient people of Turkey worshiped the skullsNew excavations at the famous settlement Gobekli-Tepeshowed that the inhabitants of Turkey of the Stone Age worshiped the skulls of dead people, which they covered with abstract patterns and lines, according to an article published in the journal Science Advances.

The Neolithic people who lived in the south of Anatolia and the Levant paid special attention to the skulls of people, kept them in special places and decorated them with soft tissues and paints. Recently, similar skulls were found in Gobekli-Tepe, and their role and function remained the subject of debate among Scientists, writes Julia Gresky of the German Archaeological Institute in Berlin.

Gobekli-Tepe, as well as several other sites of ancient people in Anatolia, such as Chatal-Guyuk and Tepejik-Chiftlik, are today considered to be one of the oldest traces of the existence of the first rudiments of civilization, religion and culture on Earth. Excavations, which scientists have been carrying out here since the 1960s, helped uncover many details of how agriculture arose, the first cities and art, and showed that states and the vertical of power had not existed approximately 8-9 thousand years ago.

True, they knew who built it from the hewn monoliths – the architect Imhotep, about which a lot of information and legends were preserved. Now the pyramid is considered to be the tomb of Pharaoh Djoser, who for long remained with the titles mysterious and mysterious for Egyptology. In encyclopedias, the dates of his reign are conditional, called only XVII century BC. In many history textbooks, he is referred to the legendary kings of Egypt.

Miracles and adventures with the first step pyramid began with the attempts of the German military engineer Minutoli to penetrate into its bowels. For a year he could not find the entrance. In 1821, he struck an incline in a stone mass and immediately stumbled upon a vaulted gallery, and then on a system of complex corridors and passages. The sarcophagus was at the bottom of a deep pit. It was opened, but it was empty. The Germans were discouraged. Read the rest of this entry »

The Sun of the Golden Age

Golden AgeThe spring was friendly and sunny was the summer … The generous sun of the Golden Age shone above the sprouting fields and villages scattered across the plains and highlands. In the autumn, the ears were filled with grain, and the whole family went out to harvest: the reapers became one row and, singing the praises of the Great Mother, cut the ears with wooden sickles with silicon inserts.




Then they transferred the grain to a common barn at the tribal church, ground the stone pistils with grain, baked cakes from flour, cooked beer and prepared for the Harvest Festival. Read the rest of this entry »
