Statue of Zeus, at Olympia, Greece, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The statue was one of two masterpieces by the Greek sculptor Phidias (the other being the statue of Athena in the Parthenon) and was placed in the huge Temple of Zeus at Olympia in western Greece.
Its construction began in the 6 th century BC but was not completed until the 2 nd century AD. It was 13m tall. It was considered the largest and most impressive temple in Greece but today only a fragment remains.The size of the Statue of Zeus was so large that if Zeus stood up he would have put his head through the roof of the temple.
The Statue of Zeus at Olympia is one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World. Unfortunately, the statue no longer exists. After the Olympic games were banned in 391 C.E. by the emperor Theodosius I as Pagan practices, the temple of Zeus (where the statue was situated) was ordered closed.
When starting your drive with the electric motor, expect immediate power that is delivered seamlessly, silently, and efficiently. As the Lexus hybrid electric vehicle speeds up using the fuel engine, a further boost can be provided by the electric motor whenever more power is desired. During your drive, the electric motor and fuel engine work in tandem to allocate and optimize power for maximum efficiency.Braking converts kinetic energy into electricity that recharges the battery. No plugs are ever needed to power the battery — you’ll always be charged and ready to go.
INSTANT AND EFFICIENT
Experience more torque on demand with the electric motor. With minimal emissions and a self-charging battery, it’s one half of our eco-friendly Lexus Hybrid Drive system.
Using fuel guarantees reliable power, anytime, anywhere.
CLEANER MEANS GREENER
Our self-charging hybrid systems reduce harmful gas emissions to levels that are significantly lower than many international standards. In fact, at lower speeds in the fully electric EV mode, emissions are eliminated with zero fuel used.
Unlike electric cars or plug-in hybrids, you’ll never have to connect a Lexus hybrid electric vehicle to a power socket or charge overnight — they’re self-charging and always ready to go.
NEXT-GENERATION HYBRID DRIVE
A 4th-generation hybrid system has been adopted for the first time ever on the all-new Lexus ES. Besides being lighter and more compact, it also realizes a high level of thermal efficiency and power when combined with the newly developed 2.5L engine.
PIONEERING HYBRID PERFORMANCE
The LC 500h’s revolutionary Multi-stage Hybrid System represents the future of performance hybrid technology. By combining an automatic transmission with a CVT, it enables seamless gear shifts for a visceral drive unprecedented in a hybrid electric vehicle.
Craybdea branchi, is a relative of the Australian box jellyfish also known as Chironex fleckeri, is considered the most venomous marine animal.
Box jellyfish, named for their body shape, have tentacles known as nematocysts – tiny darts loaded with poison. People and animals unfortunate enough to be injected with this poison may experience paralysis, cardiac arrest, and even death, all within a few minutes of being stung. But don’t choose the mountains over the ocean just yet. Chironex fleckeri is the largest of the box jellyfish, with body sizes reaching up to one foot in diameter and thick, bootlace-like tentacles up to 10 feet long.
Box jellyfish have traits that set them apart from other jellyfish. Most notably, box jellyfish can swim—at maximum speeds approaching four knots—whereas most species of jellyfish float wherever the current takes them, with little control over their direction. Box jellyfish can also see. They have clusters of eyes on each side of the box. Some of these eyes are surprisingly sophisticated, with a lens and cornea, an iris that can contract in bright light, and a retina.
Their speed and vision leads some researchers to believe that box jellyfish actively hunt their prey, mainly shrimp and small fish.
“The Hunger Games” is a the first book in a fantastic series of three books written by Suzanne Collins. It takes you into the life of a scared but quick-thinking, brave girl named Katniss Everdeen who learns how to survive on her own from a very young age when her father died in a mining accident. From that day on, she took care of her little family (mother and little sister, Prim) as well as herself by hunting in the woods of District 12 everyday with her guy friend Gale (who might have a thing for her but no one really knows). District 12 was one of the twelve districts that made up the country of Panem. Panem was once the continent of North America. When an epidemic swept through the continent of North America, Panem was formed and, the people who lived under the rules set by the capitol did not like it. They rebelled against the capitol and lost. Now, every year, children’s names, ages 12 through 18, are put into a bowl and drawn out during a ceremony known as “The Reaping.” This is a dreaded time and no one wants to be a part of it because they know that if their names are drawn, it is almost like a death sentence. When a name is called, you are then taken and thrown into what is known as “The Hunger Games.”- soccerlover
There are many well-known conspiracy theories around the world. One of them is that ‘Have humans really stood on moon?’-whether there was ever a moon landing by Apollo astronauts in June 1969. As it has continued for forty years, there must be some truth behind the belief that the moon landing was a hoax staged by NASA in order to win the race going on at the time between the USA and the Russia. One conspiracist examined the photo of the astronauts emerging from the landing craft and said he can pinpoint where spotlight was used to simulate sunlight, and calculated that it was between 24 and 36 centimeters to right of the camera. It has also been cited as evidence for it being a hoax that no stars are visible though they should have been, that the backgrounds of all photographs is the same, and that the flag fluttered, as if in a fan breeze, despite there being no wind on the moon.

It’s true that people don’t drown in the water of Dead Sea. This is all because of the water of Dead Sea has has high salt content in it. This stops swimmer from sinking and enables them for floating. Many people say that its not true because they trip and fall. Higher organisms such as fish cannot live in this water but micro-organisms or bacteria like algae ca live in this water. Its difficult to swim here as people float. Dead Sea is around 306 m deep. The high salinity in water increases its density with turns water little oily and objects more buoyant.
