He Was A Mineralogist of Achondrites

Aaron was lying down on a wide green field where he witness the entry of what seems like a rock from outer space entering. It's flying towards the field where he is. Luckily, it didn't hit him. He picked up the stone and kept it without letting anyone know. From that day onwards, Aaron had been studying the rocks and eventually became the mineralogist. He wasn't just any mineralogist but a renowned one. He always describe the Achondrites as lack of chondrules, originate on differentiated planetary bodies which has planetary bodies with a distinct core and crust, such as asteroids, planets, or moons, and were reformed from molten fragments that were flung into space as the result of another collision. Because achondrites closely resemble terrestrial rocks to the naked eye, they are less commmonly encountered as finds. The achondrites include angrites, aubrites, diogenites, eucrites, howardites, lunar meteorites,martian meteorites, primitive achondrites such as acapulcoites,…

Secret of Achluophobia

Everyone has their own unique compilation of fears and phobias. Maybe you're afraid of pancakes. Or maybe, it's visions of creepy, murderous clowns that keep you up late at night. If your worst nightmares include something a little more common, like, you know, having a damn heart attack every time you're forced to venture into the darkness, you're not alone. Fear of darkness, known as nyctophobia (or achluophobia in extreme forms), is actually a pretty common condition that many people can't seem to shake, even as adults. In fact, a survey found that nearly 40 percent of respondents were afraid to wander around their houses with the lights off, and 10 percent of the survey participants admitted they were so fearful of the dark, they wouldn't even leave the safety of their beds to use the bathroom at night.

I've been afraid of the dark ever since I was a little kid, and even at the age of 24, I still leave the hallway lights on when I go to sleep because the …

Achlorhydria Killed A Person

No reference has been found to a controlled study of the effect of administering both hydrochloric acid and pepsin in cases of achlorhydria. Some difficulties in the interpretation of results have been pointed out and the suggestion made that neutralization may be unimportant in the production of the condition. A patient with achlorhydria has been studied by fractional meal tests to determine the effect of giving acid and pepsin. These substances have been administered, combined and separately in varied dosage, single or fractional and at different times in relation to meals. A few days after the administration had been begun there were evidences that secretion had increased and after thirteen days free hydrochloric acid and pepsin in fair concentration were found in the stomach spontaneously after a test-meal. In the analysis of the various factors involved in the increase of secretion it has been felt that the ingested acid played a part. The suggestion made by former investigators …

The Achitophel and Dryden

It would not serve any purpose to dwell upon the general moderation of Dryden, who, in this as in other respects, was “hurried down” the times in which he lived, to the leaders of politics and fashion, to the king’s ministers, favorites and mistresses, or upon the flatteries which, in dedications and elsewhere, he heaped upon the king himself, and upon his brother the duke. The attempts, however, which have been made to show that his pen was “venal” in any sense beyond that of his having been paid for his compliments, or, at least, for a good many of them may be said to have broken down; and the fact that he may have received payment from the king for writing The Medal does not prove that he was inspired by the expectation of personal profit when he first attacked the future medallist in Absalom and Achitophel.
In undertaking the composition of this great satire, whether or not at the request of Dryden had found his great literary opportunity; and, of this, he took advantage in a spi…

The Warfare of Achish

The Philistines gathered their armies together for warfare.—This was evidently, as Jose-phus remarks, a great effort on the part of the Philistines. It was no ordinary raid or border incursion, such as seems to have been so frequent all through the reign of Saul. Since their defeat in the Valley of Elah, which followed the single combat between Goliath and David, no such Philistine army had been gathered together. We are struck at once with the presence of the enemy in the heart of the land, no longer choosing the well-known and often-contested “Marches,” or border districts. The Philistines are now strong enough to strike a blow at the centre of the kingdom, and to challenge a battle on the plain of Jezreel. or Esdraelon, north of Ephraim and Issachar. They probably marched along the sea-border of Canaan, collecting their forces as they advanced from each of their well-known military centres, and then, turning eastward, invaded the land by the Valley of Jezreel, or Esdraelon. They ma…

Achinsk's Ruling

Most statues for Josef Stalin have been torn down but now they want to erect a new monument where he was exiled before the Revolution. The aim is to build the controversial memorial in Achinsk, Krasnoyarsk region, by next year to mark the anniversary of the Soviet Union's victory over Nazi in World War II.

Stalin is reputed to have begun his trademark pipe-smoking habit in Achinsk during his two-month exile in the city before returning to Petrodgrad - now St Petersburg to join the unrest following the February revolution and the overthrow Tsar Nicholas II.

Years later Stalin replaced Vladimir Lenin as leader of the Soviet Union, and is widely portrayed as one of the most notorious dictators in history. Millions were sent into Siberian exile, to Gulag labour camps, condemning them to death or long years separated from loves ones.

'Currently, the memory of Stalin in Achinsk is not immortalised,' said Vladimir Sedov, a deputy for the local party. There is an exhibition at a lo…

The Achish Goliath

Gath as the home of Goliath — the enormous warrior killed with a slingshot fired by David before he became king of Israel. “David took these words to heart and was very much afraid of Achish king of Gath. So he pretended to be insane in their presence; and while he was in their hands he acted like a madman, making marks on the doors of the gate and letting saliva run down his beard.” While not personally involved in the uncovering of the gate, Ms Hitchcock said she has made a number of other discoveries that go along with the theory including an inscription of the name Goliath, two Philistine temples, alters and ritual objects.

“The discovery of the gate in the lower part of the city is different to the area where I have been digging,” she said. “I have been excavating the houses of the people who likely built the gate.”

Ms Hitchcock said it was in these houses she made the discovery of some pottery typically associated with Philistine culture. “The domestic remains of distinctive Phili…

An Achimaas Journey

There, a weeping David, fleeing from his usurping son Absalom, heads up the Mount of Olives and sends three of his allies Sadoc, Achimaas and Jonathan, back to Jerusalem. He, too, heads up the mountain to the Garden of Gethsemane, where he will be overcome with sorrow. He leaves three disciples behind as he retreats into the recesses of the garden.

David finds himself mocked and harassed by one Shimei, a partisan of Saul’s dynasty. He curses the fallen king, and David’s man Abishai offers to chop the mocker’s head off, but David forestalls him, musing that apparently God has bidden Shimei to curse David, given the situation. So as they slink along in silence, Shimei continues to pelt the refugees with rocks. Here we find more elements underlying Mark’s story. Abishai is the prototype of the unnamed disciple of Himwho does attempt to behead Malchus in the arresting party. Shimei, another form of Shimeon or Simon, is the prototype for Simon who denies him repeatedly, his ston…
