Greek At Its Acme

At the beginning of the 2nd Millennium B.C., organized palatial societies appeared on Minoan Crete, resulting in the development of the first systematic scripts. The Minoans, with Knossos Palace as their epicenter, developed a communications network with races from the Eastern Mediterranean region, adopted certain elements and in turn decisively influenced cultures on the Greek mainland and the islands of the Aegean.

The civilization of ancient Greece became a kind of turning point. During its existence many of these prehistoric notions weren’t eradicated completely, but the foundations were created for a new kind of world. Greece had one of the cultures that contained the spirit of the Western Civilization in itself, the spirit that is represented by individualism, rationality and productivity. Later it was transferred to the ancient Rome, then to medieval Europe, led it into Renaissance and modern period of history, so we may say for sure that there is a direct link between us and t…

The War of Acmeism

During Anna’s sorrowful and unjust life, there were many beautiful things that came from her poems and literature. Just shortly after her 21st birthday and marriage to Nikolai, Anna helped to create a fairly radical movement during the Acmeism. Acmiests revolted against symbolism’s vagueness and attempts to privilege emotional suggestion over clarity and vivid sensory images. During this time, many writers were still focused and mainly writing according to the Romantic standards. Anna and her group called The Poets Guild, although, wanted something a little more revolutionary. Acmeism focused on “the value of clarity, concreteness, and closeness to things on this earth,” but each of the poets when in their own direction to find that. The first time that we see Anna's beautiful nature imagery is in Dedication. “Mountains bow down to this grief, /mighty rivers cease to flow, /but the prison gates hold firm…” You can see just how strong and vivid Anna's imagery truly is. Through…

A Tale From ACM Camp

“Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.” Ephesians 3:20

“Have the baby ready. Someone will be there in 30 minutes to get her.”

That call bought heartache I had never known. After retiring from a corporate career, my plan was to adopt foster care children. A baby girl was placed with me. She was a high needs newborn, five pounds and 11 days old. Caring for her was exhausting, but she was beautiful and soon her giggles made me love her as much as my own grown biological children. Although I should have seen the handwriting on the wall that I would not be able to adopt her, I was still shocked when I received the call. I barely had time to gather her little outfits together before it was time to say goodbye.

The empty nursery and quiet house were terrible. Days and nights faded together, and I believed that my broken heart would soon lead to my death. I cried out to God, “What do you want me to…

Worshiper of The Creator of Aclinic Line

Aclinic Line is an imaginary line on the earth's surface roughly parallel to the geographical equator and passing through those points where a magnetic needle if suspended freely has no dip or inclination and assumes a horizontal position — called also magnetic equator. It's where the places of zero dip conjoin. These lines don't exist in the real world; you can pick any arbitrary starting point you like and then, given a model of the magnetic field, draw an isoclinic line through the other points that share the same angle. In the dark age, there were rumors that this were used to manipulate human into thinking that it's magic. But the fact it's just pure science. People would worship these them for this and claimed that they were god. The main question here is whether the myth that we often hear when we were child deem to be true. As a matter of fact, is everything stated in the religion accurate. Doubts began to grow among those who could see through the history …
