A girl studying art history draws on the works of J. R. R. Tolkien, J. Rawling, F. Herbert and other popular writers, creating original illustrations. For example, on The Lord of the Rings, Jackson drew a map of Middle-earth, and on The Hobbit, Bilbo’s hole. Each drawing takes Macy from several hours to several days, depending on the detail. “I am often very fond of details,” says the artist. While the girl paints for fun, but in the future, she may sell her work, she says. @maisie_matilda All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is

Folk signs for January 8: should we wait for a cold snap

On January 8, the Orthodox Church celebrates the Cathedral of the Most Holy Theotokos. The midwives were honored by the people on this day. The women took their children, gifts and went to visit the midwives to thank them, and the midwives treated the guests with porridge. Since January 8, there are a lot of signs about the weather. For example, we watched birds. If magpies and crows are worried and chattering, frost will strike. Finches sing for the thaw. Blizzard and frost promise a stormy summer. In the morning it is sunny and clear – for a good harvest. Snow sticks to the palms — to warming. The north wind will bring a cold snap. A red sunset also promises cold.

4 important discoveries of Stephen Hawking that are worth knowing about

He clarified how the universe was formed Hawking wrote his doctoral dissertation at a time of intense debate on the formation of the universe. Two theories competed in science — the stationary universe and the Big Bang. Both theories say that the universe is expanding. However, according to the theory of the stationary Universe, as the cosmos expands, new matter is constantly being created between the scattering galaxies. According to the second theory, the universe began to expand at the moment of the Big Bang from an ultra-compact, super-dense state, and this initial impulse remained in the past. In his dissertation, Hawking showed that the theory of the stationary universe is mathematically contradictory. Instead, he argued that the cosmos was formed from an infinitely small dense point called a singularity. Today, this Hawking cosmological theory is almost universally accepted among scientists.

The most common symptoms of the omicron strain are named

The specialist noted that the disease in those infected with the new variant of SARS-CoV-2 is mostly mild, but the high contagiousness of the virus can lead to an overload of the healthcare system. To curb the spread of omicron, the authorities should take into account three more symptoms that are often found in colds, the doctor believes. “The fact that 75 percent of new COVID-19 cases have symptoms similar to colds, and classic symptoms are much less common, means that the recommendations of the authorities need to be updated urgently. We would like to add symptoms such as sore throat, headache and runny nose to the list as soon as possible,” the doctor noted. A new strain of B.1.1.529 was found in Botswana and South Africa at the end of November. It contains dozens of mutations in the S-protein required by the pathogen to infect cells.

“Mexico has suggested that the US move towards & nbsp; create a union that will be more like & nbsp; EU. The Organization of American States is already very outdated.

Ginzburg did not rule out a positive test after the nasal vaccine from COVID-19

“It is possible, but this is a very short period of time, and we need to try to catch this interval in order to get a positive PCR until the phagocytic cells devour this virus. At the same time, the virus must be in some very concentrated state,” Mr. Ginzburg said in an interview with the TASS news agency. Recall that the Gamalei Center received permission from the Ministry of Health of Russia to conduct the second phase of clinical trials of a coronavirus vaccine in the form of a nasal spray in October 2021.
