7 Wonders of the World

Great Wall of China (China)
Great Wall of China

Built between the 5th century B.C. and the 16th century, the Great Wall of China is a stone-and-earth fortification created to protect the borders of the Chinese Empire from invading Mongols. The Great Wall is actually a succession of multiple walls spanning approximately 4,000 miles, making it the world’s longest manmade structure.

Christ the Redeemer Statue (Rio de Janeiro)
Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro

The Art Deco-style Christ the Redeemer statue has been looming over the Brazilians from upon Corcovado mountain in an awe-inspiring state of eternal blessing since 1931. The 130-foot reinforced concrete-and-soapstone statue was designed by Heitor da Silva Costa and cost approximately $250,000 to build — much of the money was raised through donations. The statue has become an easily recognized icon for Rio and Brazil.

Machu Picchu (Peru)

Machu Picchu, an Incan city of sparkling granite precariously perched between 2 towering Andean peaks, is thought by scholars to have been a sacred archaeological center for the nearby Incan capital of Cusco. Built at the peak of the Incan Empire in the mid-1400s, this mountain citadel was later abandoned by the Incas. The site remained unknown except to locals until 1911, when it was rediscovered by archaeologist Hiram Bingham. The site can only be reached by foot, train or helicopter; most visitors visit by train from nearby Cusco.

Chichen Itza (Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico)

The genius and adaptability of Mayan culture can be seen in the splendid ruins of Chichen Itza. This powerful city, a trading center for cloth, slaves, honey and salt, flourished from approximately 800 to 1200, and acted as the political and economic hub of the Mayan civilization. The most familiar ruin at the site is El Caracol, a sophisticated astronomical observatory.

The Roman Colosseum (Rome)

Rome’s, if not Italy’s, most enduring icon is undoubtedly its Colosseum. Built between A.D. 70 and 80 A.D., it was in use for some 500 years. The elliptical structure sat nearly 50,000 spectators, who gathered to watch the gladiatorial events as well as other public spectacles, including battle reenactments, animal hunts and executions. Earthquakes and stone-robbers have left the Colosseum in a state of ruin, but portions of the structure remain open to tourists, and its design still influences the construction of modern-day amphitheaters, some 2,000 years later.

Taj Mahal (Agra, India)

A mausoleum commissioned for the wife of Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, the Taj Mahalwas built between 1632 and 1648. Considered the most perfect specimen of Muslim art in India, the white marble structure actually represents a number of architectural styles, including Persian, Islamic, Turkish and Indian. The Taj Mahal also encompasses formal gardens of raised pathways, sunken flower beds and a linear reflecting pool.

Petra (Jordan)

Declared a World Heritage Site in 1985, Petra was the capital of the Nabataean empire of King Aretas IV, and likely existed in its prime from 9 B.C. to A.D. 40. The members of this civilization proved to be early experts in manipulating water technology, constructing intricate tunnels and water chambers, which helped create an pseudo-oasis. A number of incredible structures carved into stone, a 4,000-seat amphitheater and the El-Deir monastery have also helped the site earn its fame.

Winter sports (Skiing)

  1. The word ‘Ski’ is derived from the Norwegian word ‘skíð’ which means a split piece of wood.
  2. The first recorded downhill skiing race was held in Sweden, in 1879.
  3. Alpine skiing made its first debut in the Winter Olympics of 1936 and German born Franz Pfnür became the first man to win the gold medal in the championship.
  4. ‘Skiing’ is the only six-letter word in the English language with a double ‘i’ exactly in the middle.
  5. Skiing is one of the fastest non-motorized sports on land. Skiers can ski faster than a car and this was proven by Simone Origone in 2006 that set a world speed skiing record at 156.2 miles per hour compared to the speed of road cars at 120 miles per hour.

The history of the book

Initially, people wrote books manually and, if they made a mistake, had to tear the page down and write again. At that time, when a people had more than two books, he was considered to be very rich, because the books were very expensive. Then, when people have the opportunity to print books, their books have become more and more evident.

Սկզբում մարդիկ գրքերը գրել են ձեռքով և մի սխալ անելու դեպքում ստիպված են եղել էջը պատռել և նորից գրել: Այն ժամանակ երբ մարդը երկուսից ավել գիրք է ունեցել համարվել է շատ հարուստ, որովհետև գրքերը շատ թանկ են եղել: Հետո արդեն երբ մարդիկ գիրք տպելու հնարավորություն են ունեցել, գրքերը շատացել են և եժանացել:

From the clay tablets to the e-book format, the book has enjoyed a remarkable evolution.

Կավե տախտակներից մինչև էլեկտրոնային գրքի ձևաչափը, գրքերը հիանալի էվոլյուցիա են ունեցել:
