And one day he was no longer there. Everyone wondered where he disappeared? It’s not gone – I whispered. Quite simply he retired.

Zinc is an extremely important mineral, due to its antioxidant properties that will help to immunity strengthen. It is present in all organs, and most of it occurs in erythrocytes (red blood cells), bones , muscles, liver and prostate in males. Zinc is another trace element in the human body after iron.
Unlike some substances, the body can not store zinc, which means it is necessary to take zinc every day through food. The human body contains about 2-3 grams of zinc . The recommended daily dose for women is 8 mg per day. In pregnant women, this number increases to 11 mg , and in the case of nursing 12 mg . Zinc intake in pregnancy will positively affect the health of the baby’s brain.
What are the basic roles of zinc in the body?
– Zinc is an integral part of over 200 proteins, so it is involved in the processes of regulation of growth and development, as well as stimulation of fertility, and it also helps digestion.
-Zinc is a substance that alleviates the symptoms of colds.
-Zinc is thought to have an antioxidant effect that protects against premature aging of the skin and muscles, although studies show different efficacy.
-Zinc in larger quantities accelerates the healing of wounds after injury.
– Zinc-containing preparations protect the skin from sunburn flying and frost in winter.
-If it is applied in a thin layer on the skin at every baby’s roaring, it protects against the onset of rash.
– Important for smokers – zinc is an antagonist (“opponent”) of cadmium. Cadmium is known to be one of the causative agents of lung and prostate cancer, and is present in cigars.

The Wolf is truly a synonym for intelligence, power, power, courage, and victory, but it is not even a cunning, cunning and cautiousness that is not a side effect.
Certainly, one of the most famous wolves in Roman history was Martha’s witch, who fed her brothers Romul and Rud, the founders of Rome with her milk. It is interesting to add that this patron sainted Mars wolf still stands today as a symbol of the city.
Wax tattoos – Wolves have a special place in the history of mankind. People have recognized the characteristics of the wolf and consider it a very loyal animal. The wolves were the first dog lovers who were impregnated, and then their intelligence, hardness and loyalty were particularly emphasized.The wolf used to be the symbol most commonly used in indigenous tribes. They were used in the form of a totem and symbolized the inner strength and strength of the heart at the persons who carried them.
The man is from a violently indifferent wolf for centuries and has systematically made diverse and numerous breeds of dogs, with none of them being so resistant, resourceful, nor intelligent or stronger than a wolf. Some of them are examples of dog species that are absolutely incapable of any naturally independent life and survival.
Otherwise, the wolf does not listen to anyone, nor wants anyone to serve. He is dedicated to protecting, defending, strengthening and sustaining his species with all the natural characteristics and character in his free territory.
Between the wolves in the pack there is a clear hierarchy that is established by an internal struggle where the stronger will never kill a weaker wolf. Namely, a stronger wolf with a strong bite until the beginning of a bone fracture, reminds the other that it is weaker than he accepts by laying on his back obeying unconditionally in order to be free from further attacks.
The wolves are in agreement with hunting, boating, raising and caring for the offspring and respect for the inner hierarchy. This is not the case with dogs, since these instincts have been lost in time. In the end, through the natural section of the strongest, the most healthy and the most capable in their species, with far more sharpening of all the senses in relation to dogs, the wolves provided extraordinary life abilities, resistance and adaptability.
The Royal Eagle or the Eagle Crusade is a big eagle from the family of hawks.The eagle’s cruiser mostly settles up to 1000 meters above sea level, where there is not too much noise. For the nest, he chooses a lonely tree with a wide field view.
It once inhabited the wide regions of Eurasia, and today the number of individuals is very low and threatens its extinction. The Royal Eagle is very similar to the raw eagle, but it is slightly smaller, up to 83 cm in length and up to 205 cm.
Males and females are similar in appearance, only females are a bit larger. The color of feathers changes with age; the cubs have a yellow-brown color and are wrapped in darker longitudinal patterns, while the head and neck of adult individuals are yellowish brown, and the body is dark brown with distinctive white straps.
The Royal Eagle is mainly fed to small mammals, birds, rodents and lizards, and in the absence of other choices and tricks. Its main habitat is south-eastern and central Europe, western and central Asia.
The Eagle Crusade was a symbol of many monarchies, such as the Roman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Because of its protective power, its strength and beauty, people chose the eagle of the crusader as a symbol on its coat-of-arms, or two-headed eagle, which indicates a long tradition of belief in its protective power.
Today, only 9 European countries have an eagle on their coat of arms: Austria, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Montenegro and Albania, and in the world of only 30 countries.
The killing and persecution of eagle cruisers is one of the greatest dangers, for this endangered species, in many areas. This danger exists in many areas of the Balkans, Turkey, Lebanon and Syria. Degradation of the habitat is one of the most severe and most complex hazards in almost the entire region.Destruction of forests (clean cutting, sanitary cutting, drastic screening, afforestation with inadequate species), expansion of modern agriculture (with chemistry, etc.), pasturing of pastures, construction of settlements, buildings, roads, etc. are a great danger, as they lead to loss of habitat. The robbery of eagle crust nests from specialized thieves is common in some countries of the Balkans and Russia.
The folk saying says “beans of the herd feed”, but because of the nutritious and medicinal ingredients of this plant, it would be quite justified to say that the beans feed and heal. Although often referred to as peasant and poor food, beans are one of the most useful foods, the most reliable source of protein and, for many, the most delicious food of our national cuisine.
The richness of minerals, vitamins, complex carbohydrates, and above all proteins, classify legumes as high-nutritional foods. Beans are rightly called vegetable meat, because apart from cysts and methionines, it contains all other amino acids.
Because of this property, it is perfectly combined with cereals such as barley, wheat, rye or corn. Due to high protein content, it is not necessary to combine it with meat, fish, milk or eggs.
Beans have partially soluble fibers , and because of the combination of fibers and folic acid reduces the risk of stroke, as well as heart and blood vessels diseases . It is recommended for diabetics and pregnant women, but not for kidney patients. In the shell, however, there is pectin, which is hardly digestible, so the bean is avoided in the digestive system. This is one of the favorite foods of vegetarians because it contains a large amount of protein. It does not contain gluten , so it is also suitable for eating people with celiac disease . Due to the reduced digestibility of the shell, it is desirable to eat it up to twice a week.
In the case of a lot of people, beans cause bloating and gases, and in order to get rid of it, while cooking it would be desirable to use spices such as cinnamon, leaf, ginger and garlic .
Baked beans recipe:
300 g of colorful beans, 300 g of noodle, big onion, 3 onions, 200 g of bacon, 500 g of dried ribs, two slices of sweet peppers, 2 potatoes

Separate the flowers and wash them with cold water. In this way, you will remove all insects, dirt and impurities that may affect the quality of the final product.
After that, place them in the sherry and pour 2 liters of water (preferably distilled). Put the bowl on the stove and cook on a strong fire. When you notice boiling, leave for another 20 minutes on the rings and you can hold them half-shaded. After that, remove the shark and rinse the liquid through a sieve or strainer into another container.
Then pour 2 kg of sugar into this pot and place on the ring that is adjusted to the medium volume. Mix consistently until the moment you notice how the quantity has halved and the mass is dense . Then insert two lemons that you washed before and cut into slices. Be sure to add them along with the coral because they are full of vitamin C.
Continue stirring with a wiper until the mixture has reached the density of the honey. After that, remove the container from the fire, and honey from the butter while you are still hot in the clean glass jars. Close them well and take them to a dark and cold place.
If you are not a sweetener, do not give up on making this medicinal product. Namely, honey can be made without sugar. Modify the recipe by inserting a mead honey in the same amount of 2 kilograms instead. You can improve the flavor if you cut off one whole orange along with lemon.

Mont Saint Michel, a picturesque fortified rocky outcrop that dates back to the Middle Ages. It is a wonder of Gothic architecture on three floors, dedicated to the Archangel Michael.
One of France’s most iconic sights, the stunning UNESCO World Heritage listed island of Mont Saint Michel and its bay.Magnificent medieval abbey at the island’s summit, a historical masterpiece. Magic of the island and the breath-taking sight of the Bay of Mont Saint Michel.
French historic monument since 1874, the Abbey of the Mont-Saint-Michel is an architectural gem dating back to medieval times. Looking down from on high over the immense bay that surrounds. The long history of a Christian presence on the Mont-Saint-Michel is believed to date back to 708. In the 10th century, Benedictine monks established an abbey on the Mount.
The Abbey of Mont Saint-Michel would become a place of worship, prayer, and pilgrimage over the years. Benedictine monks, who have been there since 966 and translated Aristotle’s texts, and the relics of Saint-Michel, attracted the faithful in search of spirituality. One can see the vestiges of the One-Hundred Year War during a visit. And in 1204, the abbey was attacked by war-hungry Breton knights acting under the command of Guy de Thouars.
It was under the reign of King Louis XI that Mont Saint-Michel became France’s version of Alcatraz. Transformed into a detention center, it took in prisoners until 1860.. When the prison closed a century later following an imperial decree, the 650 prisoners were transferred to the continent. Victor Hugo, an ardent lover of the abbey, was one of many who called for the prison’s closure.
The time of the French Revolution there were scarcely any monks in residence. The abbey was closed and converted into a reformatory, initially to hold clerical opponents of the republican régime. High-profile political prisoners followed, but by 1836 influential figures, including Victor Hugo, had launched a campaign to restore what was seen as a national architectural treasure. The prison was finally closed in 1863, in 1874. The Mont-Saint-Michel and its bay were added to the list of World Heritage Sites in 1979.
The current building of the Castle de Haar is located near Haarzuilens in the Netherlands. It was designed and erected in 1892 by architect Pierre J.H. Cuypers as a Neo-Gothic restoration project.

De Haar Castle (Kasteel de Haar) has the look of a true medieval castle with a presence that’s quite unique. The castle itself dates to the 19th century , but was designed and constructed to be identical to the medieval ruins it’s built upon. The castle, was owned by the Van Zuylen and Rothschild families. The architect who designed the castle also designed the Rijksmuseum and Amsterdam’s Centraal Station. One of the things that gives the castle its authentic medieval feel is the fact that everything was handmade in the techniques used in medieval times (even the silverware).
Once inside the castle grounds, the first building you enter is the stables where the horses were kept. But the building and its courtyard – which now serves as the café, gift shop, and visitors entrance – is so picturesque that at first you don’t even realize its historical function was for horses, not people!
There is a 135-acre park and gardens surrounding the castle that are well worth a visit in their own right.

Architectural design representing the creativity and vision of one gifted Thai artist.Wat Rong Khun is a unique temple that stands out through the white color and the use of pieces of glass in the plaster, sparkling in the sun. The white color signifies the purity of the Buddha, while the glass symbolizes the Buddha’s wisdom and the Dhamma, the Buddhist teachings.
The White Temple is the creation of Thai artist, Chalermchai Khositpipat who was born in 1951 in the village of Rong Khun in Chiang Rai province. The project is an act of faith by the internationally acclaimed artist who has invested large amounts of his own money to create the temple. Work began on the new Wat Rong Khun temple in 1997, but the artist knows that there are still many years to go before the project is completed and he has made plans for work to continue in the event of his death.
The paintings on the walls inside represent a mix of traditional Thai Buddhist art and contemporary scenes like a plane crashing into the twin towers, the war for Oil, many movie/comics characters like Neo, Batman, Superman and Star Wars droids.
Next to the white temple, on the other side of the pond, is also a the “Gharavasa” (the layman quarters) where an Art gallery, a preaching hall and a “golden public restroom” are located.
To enter the temple, you must walk over a bridge and pool of reaching arms (symbolising desire), where inside, instead of the traditional Buddha life depictions, the artist has painted contemporary scenes representing samsara (the realm of rebirth and delusion). Images such as a plane smashing into the Twin Towers and, oddly enough, Keanu Reeves as Neo from The Matrix (not to mention Elvis, Hello Kitty and Superman, among others).
The artist rose to prominence in the late 1980s, with commissions that included a Thai temple in London. His work, which blended traditional Buddhist decorative motifs with contemporary images, was controversial, especially in Thailand where rigid conformity to perceived ‘tradition’ is expected. However, over time his work became more accepted and he has even received commissions from the king. The temple suffered minor damage in an earthquake in 2014.
The monks at the temple can spare a word or two if you are keen to interact and when you wish to experience the worldly things at the temple premise, head to the restrooms, painted in Gold. And as you will be returning after this most unique and amazing experience, the White Temple that is symbolic to the teachings of Buddhism, and achieving the state of Nirvana will be etched in your memories forever.
This temple-like building is supposed to represent the Body (as opposed to the white temple that represents the Mind). Charlemchai built the two bots (white and gold) in hope to teach people to let go and not cling to substance or money, and not to perceive the physical body as an assumed identity.
Mae Fah Luang Art & Cultural Park, 5 km west of town, has lovely two lakes, a barge and several large Shan-style small ponds.

Wilhelm Richard Wagner (German, Wilhelm Richard Wagner, Leipzig, 22 May 1813 – Venice, 13 February 1883) was a German composer, poet, essayist, music theorist and conductor.
When he was 15 years old the first time he came into close contact with the music of Ludwig van Beethoven, which was to the point hit that he decided to become a composer. Even later, Wagner believed that the root of his music, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Wagner never had any real musical education, his knowledge of music gained over several months time
Wagner worked on the Ring des Nibelungen until 1856. By that time he had finished, Rhenish gold and Valkyrie, and the first two acts of Siegfried. That same year he decided to temporarily suspend work on the Ring and write a special work: Tristan and Isolde.
The inspiration is found in a relationship with Matilda Vezendonk, wife Ota Vezendonka.

The experiment did not initially promised. When it thought to give up, he noticed unusual behavior thread tied to the edges. It was as if they were connected to electricity. No, it was not sufficient evidence. Franklin wanted to fully consolidate his theory. He put the key on a kite and let him even more and waited. Patience has paid off.

Daylight Saving Time was first mentioned in 1784. Benjamin Franklin because he was bothered that we are losing a lot of daylight and suggested that in the spring the clock moves forward.
In a letter to the editors of the Journal of Paris, as it was a humorous article, it is not clear whether Franklin really wanted something to propose to the French. This article proposed by William Willett in the article “Waste of Daylight” (Loss of daylight), published in 1907, but failed to persuade the British government to accept it. The idea of daylight saving time was first recorded in Germany during the First World War, in 1916. He soon followed suit, and the United Kingdom, the same year.
We can say that Benjamin Franklin was a great man who with his attitude and way of thinking
was ahead of its time. For his long life Benjamin Franklin has achieved a lot.

Another comes from 1722., located in Rome, the National Museum of Musical Instruments (Museo Nazionale degli Strumenti Musicali). Third dates from 1726, and is currently at Leipzig University’s Musikinstrumenten (Leipzig University’s Musikinstrumenten).
Christopher continued to make pianos and after the death of Prince Ferdinand, constantly perfecting them. In later years he assisted Giovanni Ferrin, who after the death Kristoforijeve continued with the piano.
Piano instrument is the smaller size designed for home use and is made with the purpose of saving space.
Semi-grand piano, as its name says, it has half the size of a grand piano. Today these pianos are far rarer real than before, due to savings in city apartments. While previously played in smaller and larger premises, but according to the size of a room I bought a piano, now this is no longer the case. For home use were bought piano, for a concert hall, a large grand piano.
The grand piano or a “grand piano” has a length of about 242 cm and is used to open the covers, as this resonance wire in the housing hear the best and has the best quality. It is used in urban concert halls.
