This building was constructed by the Romans around 200 in Trier. It protected the north entrance to the city. From the Middle Ages on it was called Porta Nigra because the sandstones it was built of darkened through the ages.
.
After 1028 the monk Simeon lived in the ruins as an eremit and after he died the gate was transformed into a church. In 1804 Napeleon ordered to rebuild it to its original form.

"🇵🇱 ORP Kaszub (1987)" •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• First photo - The Polish Navy anti-submarine warfare corvette ORP Kaszub (1987), plowing through rough waves in the Baltic Sea. -------------------------------------------- ORP Kaszub is a corvette of the Polish Navy, in service since 1987, the sole ship of the Project 620 class. She was the first ocean-going warship built in Poland. As of 2017 she is in active service. The work on her design began in 1971, but the construction of the first ship started only in 1984, being laid down at Stocznia Północna (Northern Shipyard), Gdańsk on June 9th 1984. Kaszub was launched on May 11th 1986, but was found to have a warped hull and propeller shafts, which required repair. When the ship was commissioned on March 15th 1987, Kaszub was not fitted with much of the planned armament, with a 9K33 Osa (NATO codename SA-N-4 Gecko) surface-to-air missile launcher being omitted because of its unreliability on small, high speed ships, while the ship's main gun armament was absent because of stability problems. Originally it was planned to build 7 ships of this class, but in the end only one was constructed. At first, Kaszub saw little operational use, being loaned to the Polish Border guard from 1990 to January 1991. In September 1991, the ship was fitted with a AK-176 76 mm gun turret forward. -------------------------------------------- W lipcu 1989 roku "Kaszub" został wypożyczony do Kaszubskiego Dywizjonu Morskiej Brygady Okrętów Pogranicza MW RP w Gdańsku-Westerplatte. Tam okręt był intensywnie eksploatowany, co przyczyniło się do dotarcia mechanizmów i wyszkolenia załogi. Służbę w Dywizjonie zakończył 1 stycznia 1991 roku i powrócił do 9 FOW; od tej pory datuje się jego normalna służba jako okrętu bojowego. Wszedł w skład 11. Dywizjonu Ścigaczy 9. FOW. W roku 1992 zamontowano na nim dziobową armatę 76,2 mm AK-176M. ⬇️⬇️ continued

Then & Now: Today I went out with my dad to Rotterdam and do some Then & Now investigations on the May 1940s campaign. Dutch Marines fought heroicaly against German paratoopers who landed South of Rotterdam near the Waalhaven. This picture was taken on the southern side of where originally the Willemsbrug (Willemsbridge) was located. It must've been taken after the surrender of the Netherlands and bombings of Rotterdam on May 14th 1940.

79 yıl önce bugün,

Gazi Mustafa Kemal Atatürk'ün naaşı İstanbul'da yapılan bir tören ile Ankara'ya yola çıktı. Törende Erkek, kadın, çocuklar ve evvellikle talebeler, sonsuzluğa göç eden atalarını selamlamak için törene katıldı.

İstanbul'dan İzmit'e gitmek üzere Yavuz Zırhlısına yüklenen gazinin naaşını Türk Hava Kuvvetleri'ne bağlı uçaklar saygı duruşu ile havada selamladılar. Başöğretmen son yolculuğuna bugün uğurlandı.

Mavi gözlü atanın, mavi denizlerdeki son yolculuğu bu gün gerçekleşti.

Exploradores!
Queremos contarles una leyenda que se dice de este bello oasis.

Se dice que Huacachina se creo gracias a una joven doncella llamada Huacca China que se enamoró de un joven guerrero, tiempo después el guerrero tuvo que ir a la guerra y murió, cuando Huacca China se enteró de esto, se lleno de mucha tristeza y fue a llorar donde se conocieron.

La joven sufria y lloraba cada dia recordando a su amado, un dia la doncella vio a travez de su espejo de mano un joven que la observaba, y cuando el joven intento acercarse, la doncella empezó a correr, mientras escapaba soltó su espejo, el cual cayó y se rompió y de el empezó a brotar agua, creando así la laguna.

Las vestimentas que la doncella traía también cayeron al suelo, de estas se crearon las dunas.

Luego ella se sumergió en la laguna que se creo, dándole la forma de una sirena.
