Mother Teresa (26 August 1910 – 5 September 1997), was an Albanian born, Indian Roman Catholic Religious Sister.

Mother Teresa founded the Missionaries of Charity, a Roman Catholic religious congregation, which in 2012 consisted of over 4,500 sisters and is active in 133 countries. They run hospices and homes for people with HIV/AIDS, leprosy and tuberculosis; soup kitchens; children’s and family counseling programs; orphanages; and schools. Members of the order must adhere to the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience, and the fourth vow, to give "Wholehearted and Free service to the poorest of the poor".

Personal bankruptcy – Chapters 7 and 13 | Finance & Capital Markets | Khan Academy

Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 personal bankruptcy. Created by Sal Khan.

Missed the previous lesson? Watch here:

Finance and capital markets on Khan Academy: Back in the day (like medieval Europe), you would actually be thrown in jail if you couldn’t pay your debts (debtor’s prison). That seemed like a pretty awful thing to do (not to mention that lenders are much less likely to be paid by someone rotting in prison), so governments created an “out” called bankruptcy (which, as you’ll see, is a pseudo-painful “reset” button on your finances).

About Khan Academy: Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We’ve also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.

Bankruptcy can be a tough pill to swallow, especially if you have historically been a responsible consumer. However, this law was put into place for your protection, and you must understand that sometimes bad things happen to good people. Bankruptcy is not a moral or ethical decision, it is a financial decision and when asking, “can I file bankruptcy?” it must be kept in that perspective.

The credit card companies don’t care about you; their only concern is money, even if you’ve been a customer for years. Below we have outlined the basic process of filing bankruptcy; as well as some important information for you to consider if you are considering bankruptcy.

►Atlas, {Typhoëus}, Prometheus Bound◄ becoming savagely con-tortured insurgents put asunder by the tyrant Jupiter & the centrifugal power [_550 BC_]

Image by quapan
The three titans tend to be shown upon a laconic bowl (~550 BC) while they are now being penalized with their insurgency resistant to the tyrant Jupiter:
Prometheus is tied to a column representing the Caucasus.
Atlas will act as the line on reverse side of the hellenic globe.
The pushed aside handful of erotic acrobats are oppressed into face-to-face-opposition together.
Typhoëus is represented by the line propping within the rotating disc-shaped pottery-wheel where the titans – put asunder by the centrifugal causes – are attempting to delicately (equi)poise one another while becoming contorted into a precarious ‘kneeling’ pose that is element of their particular punishment and handicap …

Pythagorean Triangle
Three points form a Right Angle for a pythagorean triangle:
eye of Prometheus [looking into the path of the] – attention of Atlas [looking to the path of the] – remaining side of the line representing the invisualized Typhoëus under their left big toe.

Atlas & Typhoëus & Prometheus:
Atlas the titans who was simply punished for his part in their revolt against Zeus by being meant to support the heavens. He became identified using the Atlas Mountains. [NODE]
Typhoëus (‘Typho’. Not to ever confound because of the word ‘typhoon’ through the chinese ‘tai fung’= ‘big wind’ !): In aeschylean tragedies he had been the titan buried in vulcano Aetna [A.Pr.372, A.Th.517, A.Supp 560] . The proudest of titans was punished for their hubris with invisibility. – Pindar gives their birthplace as Cilicia, but places him under Cyme and Sicily, and thus accounts for the eruptions of Aetna.[LSJ]
Prometheus a demigod, the Titans, who was worshipped by craftsmen. Whenever Zeus stole fire away from guy Prometheus hid it by trickery and came back it to planet. As discipline Zeus chained him to a rock in which an eagle given daily on his liver, which grew once again every night; he was rescued by Hercules. [NODE]
titan any of the older gods just who preceded the Olympians and had been the kids of Uranus (paradise) and Gaia (planet). Led by Cronus, they overthrew Uranus; Cronus’ son, Zeus, then rebelled against their daddy and eventually defeated the titans. [NODE]

Winnetou (Pierre Brice) und Old Shatterhand (Lex Barker) am Marterpfahl 1968
Ein Totempfahl, seltener auch Wappenpfahl genannt, ist und bleibt eine monumentale Skulptur, die aus einem großen Baumstamm geschnitzt und anschließend bemalt wird. Totempfähle waren vor allem bei den Indianern der amerikanischen Nordwestküste verbreitet. Die Errichtung eines Totempfahles war mit der Ausrichtung eines Potlatches verbunden, bei dem die Stellung der Familie in der sozialen Hierarchie ihres jeweiligen Stammes bestätigt wurde. Anders als von den ersten Missionaren in British Columbia vermutet, haben Totempfähle keine religiöse Bedeutung. Sie waren weder heilig noch wurden sie angebetet, sondern hatten eine soziale und politische Funktion. Sie sind keineswegs mit dem Marterpfahl zu verwechseln, der von indigenen Völkern anderer Regionen Nordamerikas zur Folterung von Gefangenen verwendet wurde.

Die Hesperiden sind die Töchter, und Hesperos gilt als Sohn und auch Bruder diverses Atlas, der den Himmel abstützt. Dieser befindet sich seit alters in der Nähe der Hesperiden (46). Er wird allerdings nicht mit dem heutigen Atlas-Gebirge identifiziert, sondern mit dem Teide auf Teneriffa (47). Hesiod lokalisiert ihn an jenem ‚Haus‘, wo sich „Nacht und Tag nahekommen und sich begegnen und auf der großen ehernen Schwelle ablösen“ (48). Daß diese Atlas-Vorstellung ebenfalls in den Westen gehört, beweist die Übereinstimmung mit der Figur des Upelluri der Hethiter (49). Die vielen Diskussionen über das hesiodische Bild hätte man sich ersparen können, wenn berücksichtigt worden wäre, daß nicht erst im Juden- und Christentum, sondern auch bereits in der griechischen Antike – im Gegensatz zu unserem heutigen Lebensgefühl – perish Tagesgrenze häufig beim Sonnenuntergang angenommen wurde, mit dem der alte Tag gleichsam stirbt, damit aber gleichzeitig der neue geboren wird (50).
Bei Hesiod ist schließlich auch bereits perish Polarität der beiden Iapetossöhne angedeutet (52), nach der der älteste, Prometheus, im Osten an den Kaukasus geschmiedet ist und der jüngste, Atlas, im Westen bei den Hesperiden den Himmel abstützt; beide werden sie von Herakles besucht.
Hesiod kennt außer den Bergen und Gewässern noch weitere geophysikalische Phänomene: Die Winde sind Söhne des Unholds Typhoeus (53). Diesen hat Zeus in den Tartaros geschleudert, so daß die Erde von seinem Feuer geschmolzen ist und bleibt. Dabei gestaltet der Dichter ein Gleichnis nach homerischer Art, das guy verschieden gedeutet hat: Als tertium comparationis gilt entweder das „Stöhnen“ der Erde, das von manchen als Erdboden (54), richtiger jedoch als vulkanische Erscheinung gedeutet wird (55). Auf jeden Fall befindet sich Typhoeus bei Hesiod noch nicht unter einem feuerspeienden Berg wie später bei Pindar und Aischylos (56). Ob der homerische Polyphem mit seinem ‚Kreisauge‘ und seinem Steinwurf auf Odysseus wirklich eine vulkanische Grundlage cap (57) oder vielleicht auch Aiolie, pass away Insel des Windgottes (58), ist nicht therefore sicher wie der vulkanische Ursprung des Hephaistos-Kultes auf der ehemals vulkanischen Insel Lemnos, auf die Zeus seinen unglücklichen Sohn geschleudert haben soll (59). Wir haben hier einen typischen Fall von „Geomythologie“ vor uns (60).
Der häufig mit Typhoeus gleichgesetzte Typhon aus Kilikien, der Unhold eines vorgriechischen orientalischen Mythos, wurde in Ägypten für die Nilschwellen am Neujahrsanfang verantwortlich gemacht und diente der spätantiken politischen Rhetorik dazu, den Apostaten Julianos zu verteufeln. Julians heidnische Reaktion wurde dabei entweder mit Erd-, Seebeben oder Stürmen verglichen, oder guy behauptete, sie sei ex eventu durch diese Zeichen einer allgemeinen kosmischen Unordnung angekündigt worden. Nach dem Tode Julians wurde diese Assoziation auf den Usurpator Prokopios übertragen (61).
Der heidnische Redner Libanios bemüht in diesem Zusammenhang auch den Gott Poseidon (62). Noch in der modernen Forschung wird der „Erderschütterer“ Poseidon für Erdbeben verantwortlich gemacht. E. Bickel (63) und F. Schachermeyr (64) haben die kühne Hypothese vertreten, daß das dem Gott Poseidon geweihte hölzerne Pferd von Troja nichts anderes sei als der mythische Ausdruck für die Tatsache, daß Troja VIb durch ein Erdbeben zerstört wurde, eine These, die in den zahlreichen Rezensionen des Buches von Schachermeyr nahezu unwidersprochen geblieben ist (65).
Auch andere Mythen, perish zwar nicht in den homerischen Epen belegt sind, aber durchaus alt sein können, haben erdgeschichtliche Dimensionen. Die Flut des Deukalion zeugt – zeugt wie die im Alten Testament – von einer früheren allgemeinen Sintflut (66).

But those whom Zeus doesn’t love are stunned with horror when they hear the cry of this Pierian Muses, on the planet or on the irresistible water; [15] included in this is he who is based on dread Tartarus, that adversary associated with gods, Typhon with his hundred heads. When the popular Cilician cave nurtured him, but now the sea-girt high cliffs above Cumae, and Sicily too, lay heavy on their shaggy chest. Additionally the pillar of this sky keeps him down, [20] snow-covered Aetna, year-round nursing assistant of bitter frost, from whoever inmost caves belch forth the purest streams of unapproachable fire. Into the day this lady streams roll-out a fiery flooding of smoke, within the darkness of night the crimson fire hurls rocks down seriously to the deep simple for the ocean with a crashing roar. [25] That beast shoots up the most terrible jets of fire; it’s a marvellous question to see, and a marvel also to know about whenever guys are current. Such a creature is bound underneath the dark and leafy heights of Aetna and under the basic, along with his bed scratches and goads the complete length of their back extended against it. Give that individuals is pleasing to you, Zeus, [30] you just who frequent this hill, this eyebrow associated with the fruitful planet, whoever namesake city near at hand had been glorified by its famous founder, if the herald at Pythian racecourse proclaimed the name of Aetna, announcing Hieron’s success with the chariot.
Aischylos, Prometheus 363-365,
ἐγὼ γὰρ οὐκ, εἰ δυστυχῶ, τοῦδ᾽ εἵνεκα θέλοιμ᾽ ἂν ὡς πλείστοισι πημονὰς τυχεῖν. οὐ δῆτ᾽ ἐπεί με καὶ κασιγνήτου τύχαι τείρουσ᾽ Ἄτλαντος, ὃς πρὸς ἑσπέρους τόπους ἕστηκε κίον᾽ οὐρανοῦ τε καὶ χθονὸς ὤμοις ἐρείδων, ἄχθος οὐκ εὐάγκαλον. τὸν γηγενῆ τε Κιλικίων οἰκήτορα ἄντρων ἰδὼν ᾤκτιρα, δάιον τέρας ἑκατογκάρανον πρὸς βίαν χειρούμενον Τυφῶνα θοῦρον: πᾶσιν [ὅς] ἀντέστη θεοῖς, σμερδναῖσι γαμφηλαῖσι συρίζων φόβον: ἐξ ὀμμάτων δ᾽ ἤστραπτε γοργωπὸν σέλας, ὡς τὴν Διὸς τυραννίδ᾽ ἐκπέρσων βίᾳ: ἀλλ᾽ ἦλθεν αὐτῷ Ζηνὸς ἄγρυπνον βέλος, καταιβάτης κεραυνὸς ἐκπνέων φλόγα, ὃς αὐτὸν ἐξέπληξε τῶν ὑψηγόρων κομπασμάτων. φρένας γὰρ εἰς αὐτὰς τυπεὶς ἐφεψαλώθη κἀξεβροντήθη σθένος. καὶ νῦν ἀχρεῖον καὶ παράορον δέμας κεῖται στενωποῦ πλησίον θαλασσίου ἰπούμενος ῥίζαισιν Αἰτναίαις ὕπο: κορυφαῖς δ᾽ ἐν ἄκραις ἥμενος μυδροκτυπεῖ Ἥφαιστος: ἔνθεν ἐκραγήσονταί ποτε ποταμοὶ πυρὸς δάπτοντες ἀγρίαις γνάθοις τῆς καλλικάρπου Σικελίας λευροὺς γύας: τοιόνδε Τυφὼς ἐξαναζέσει χόλον θερμοῖς ἀπλάτου βέλεσι πυρπνόου ζάλης, καίπερ κεραυνῷ Ζηνὸς ἠνθρακωμένος.…:
Even for if I was in aching plight, i might perhaps not wish problem on everyone else. No, certainly, no! since, besides, i will be distressed because of the fate of my cousin Atlas, just who, towards west, appears bearing on their shoulders the pillar of heaven and earth, a burden quite difficult for his arms to understand. Pity-moved me, too, on sight regarding the earth-born dweller regarding the Cilician caverns curbed by physical violence, that destructive monster of a hundred heads, impetuous Typhon. He withstood all of the gods, hissing out terror with horrid jaws, while from their eyes lightened a hideous glare, like he would storm by power the sovereignty of Zeus. Although unsleeping bolt of Zeus came upon him, the swooping lightning brand name with air of fire, which hit him, scared, from their loud-mouthed boasts; after that, stricken towards the extremely heart, he was burnt to ashes and his strength blasted from him by the lightning bolt. Now, a helpless and a sprawling volume, he lies hard by the narrows associated with sea, squeezed down under the origins of Aetna; while on the topmost summit Hephaestus sits and hammers the molten ore. There, 1 day, shall burst forth rivers of fire, with savage jaws devouring the level areas of Sicily, land of fair fruit—such boiling trend shall Typho, although charred by the blazing lightning of Zeus, deliver spouting forth with hot jets of appalling, fire-breathing rise.
vgl. Vergil, Aeneis 3, 578ff von Enceladus:
Portus ab accessu ventorum immotus et ingens ipse; sed horrificis iuxta tonat Aetna ruinis; interdumque atram prorumpit advertising aethera nubem, turbine fumantem piceo et candente favilla, attollitque globos flammarum et sidera lambit; 575interdum scopulos avolsaque viscera montis erigit eructans, liquefactaque saxa sub auras cum gemitu glomerat, fundoque exaestuat imo. Fama est Enceladi semustum fulmine corpus urgueri mole hac, ingentemque insuper Aetnam 580impositam ruptis flammam exspirare caminis; et fessum quotiens mutet latus, intremere omnem murmure Trinacriam, et caelum subtexere fumo. Noctem illam tecti silvis immania monstra perferimus, nec quae sonitum det causa videmus. 585Nam neque erant astrorum ignes, nec lucidus aethra siderea polus, obscuro sed nubila caelo, et lunam in nimbo nox intempesta tenebat.
Interpretation (John Dryden) of Verg. A. 3.578 ffThe interface capacious, and secure from wind, would be to the base of thund’ring Aetna join’d. By turns a pitchy cloud she rolls on high; By turns hot embers from the woman entrails fly, And flakes of installing flames, that lick the sky. Oft from her bowels massy stones are tossed, And, shiver’d because of the power, come piecemeal down. Oft liquid ponds of burning sulphur movement, Fed through the fiery springs that boil the following. Enceladus, they state, transfix’d by Jove, With blasted limbs came tumbling from overhead; And, where he dropped, th’ avenging father drew This flaming mountain, as well as on his human body threw. As much as he turns their weary sides, He shakes the solid isle, and smoke cigarettes the heavens hides. In shady forests we go the tiresome evening, Where bellowing noises and groans our souls affright, that no cause is offer’d towards picture; For not just one celebrity was kindled when you look at the sky, Nor could the moon this lady borrow’d light offer; For misty clouds involv’d the firmament, The performers had been muffled, while the moon ended up being pent.
adnotation for Verg A. 578 by John Conington :
The name associated with giant who was supposed to be placed under Aetna ended up being variously provided when you look at the legends. Pindar l. c. and Aesch. Prom. 354 allow it to be Typhocus or Typhon, Callim. in Del. 143 Briareus. In A. 9. 716, after (though misinterpreting) Hom., Virgil locations Typhoeus under Inarime or Pithecusa. ‘Semustum’ is available here in a lot of the MSS., including Med., which includes the same kind in 11. 200. See on v. 244.

Hyaden & Plejaden
Gemeinsam mit den Hyaden bilden die Plejaden (M45) das "Goldene Tor der Ekliptik". Dieser Namen rührt zum einen daher, dass sie in ihrer Mitte von der scheinbare Sonnenbahn durchzogen werden und zum anderen vom Umstand eines sich verschiebenden Frühlingspunktes: noch bis etwa 2000 vor Christus lag dieser Punkt, den guy seit jeher mit Wachstum und Fruchtbarkeit gleichsetzte, im Stier.

Detainee claims to have lied under CIA torture "in which is he? I’m not sure. Then he torture me," said Mohammed, the self-confessed mastermind associated with September 11, 2001 attacks on ny and Washington.
"Then we said: ‘Yes, he could be of this type or this is certainly Al-Qaeda…’ we said no, they torture me personally."

This was one of the hardest painting I have photographed. It took a while to get close to it, the light and glares on the bulletproof gas were terrible. For works of art the Louvre is great – for photography not so good.

The famous Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci. It has been acclaimed as "the best known, the most visited, the most written about, the most sung about, and the most praised work of art in the world."

It is believed to be a portrait of Lisa Gherardini, the wife of Francesco del Giocondo.

It is a oil on panel, 1503–19, probably completed while the artist was at the court of Francis I.

Adjusted for inflation using the US Consumer Price Index, valued at 0 million in 1962, 0 million in 2012, it is now worth a Billion dollars, making it by far the most valued painting in the world.
