A pencil Listeni/ˈpɛnsəl/ is a writing implement or art mediumusually constructed of a narrow, solid pigment core inside aprotective casing which prevents the core from being broken orleaving marks on the user’s hand during use.Pencils create marks byphysical abrasion, leaving behind a trail of solid core materialthat adheres to a sheet of paper or other surface. They aredistinct from pens, which instead disperse a trail of liquid or gelink that stains the light colour of the paper.Most pencil cores aremade of graphite mixed with a clay binder which leaves grey orblack marks that can be easily erased. Graphite pencils are usedfor both writing and drawing and result in durable markings: thoughwriting is easily removable with an eraser, it is otherwiseresistant to moisture, most chemicals, ultraviolet radiation, andnatural aging. Other types of pencil core are less widely used,such as charcoal pencils, which are mainly used by artists fordrawing and sketching. Coloured pencils are sometimes used byteachers or editors to correct submitted texts, but are typicallyregarded as art supplies, especially those with waxy core bindersthat tend to smear on paper instead of erasing. Grease pencils havea softer, crayon-like waxy core that can leave marks on smoothsurfaces such as glass or porcelain.The most common type of pencilcasing is of thin wood, usually hexagonal in section but sometimescylindrical, permanently bonded to the core. Similar permanentcasings may be constructed of other materials such as plastic orpaper. To use the pencil, the casing must be carved or peeled offto expose the working end of the core as a sharp point. Mechanicalpencils have more elaborate casings which support mobile pieces ofpigment core that can be extended or retracted through the casingtip as needed.

Italy Puzzle 1.23 APK
Italy Listeni/ˈɪtəli/ (Italian: Italia [iˈtaːlja]), officially theItalian Republic (Italian: Repubblica italiana),[7][8][9][10] is aunitary parliamentary republic in Southern Europe. To the north,Italy borders France, Switzerland, Austria, and Slovenia, and isapproximately delimited by the Alpine watershed, enclosing the PoValley and the Venetian Plain. To the south, it consists of theentirety of the Italian Peninsula and the two biggest Mediterraneanislands of Sicily and Sardinia.Italian territory also includes theislands of Pantelleria, 60 km (37 mi) east of the Tunisian coastand 100 km (62 mi) southwest of Sicily, and Lampedusa, at about 113km (70 mi) from Tunisia and at 176 km (109 mi) from Sicily, inaddition to many other smaller islands. The sovereign states of SanMarino and the Vatican City are enclaves within Italy, whileCampione d'Italia is an Italian exclave in Switzerland. Italycovers an area of 301,338 km2 (116,347 sq mi) and has a largelytemperate climate. With 60 million inhabitants, it is the 5th mostpopulous country in Europe. Italy is also the 4th-largest economyin the European Union, 3rd in the Eurozone and 9th in the world(IMF, 2012).Italy's capital and largest city, Rome, has forcenturies been the leading political and religious centre ofWestern civilisation, serving as the capital of both the RomanEmpire and Christianity. During the Dark Ages, Italy enduredcultural and social decline in the face of repeated invasions byGermanic tribes, with Roman heritage being preserved largely byChristian monks. Beginning around the 11th century, various Italiancities, communes and maritime republics rose to great prosperitythrough shipping, commerce and banking (indeed, modern capitalismhas its roots in Medieval Italy);[11] concurrently, Italian cultureflourished, especially during the Renaissance, which produced manynotable scholars, artists, and polymaths such as Leonardo da Vinci,Galileo, Michelangelo and Machiavelli. Meanwhile, Italian explorerssuch as Polo, Columbus, Vespucci, and Verrazzano discovered newroutes to the Far East and the New World, helping to usher in theEuropean Age of Discovery. Nevertheless, Italy would remainfragmented into numerous warring states for the rest of the MiddleAges, subsequently falling prey to larger European powers such asFrance, Spain, and later Austria. Italy would thus enter a longperiod of decline that lasted until the beginning of the 18thcentury.After many unsuccessful attempts, the second and the thirdwars of Italian independence resulted in the unification of most ofpresent-day Italy between 1859 and 1866.[12] From the late 19thcentury to the early 20th century, the new Kingdom of Italy rapidlyindustrialized and acquired a colonial empire becoming a GreatPower.[13] However, Southern and rural Italy remained largelyexcluded from industrialisation, fuelling a large and influentialdiaspora. Despite victory in World War I as one of the Big Fourwith permanent membership in the security council of the League ofNations, Italy entered a period of economic crisis and socialturmoil, which favoured the establishment of a Fascist dictatorshipin 1922. The subsequent participation in World War II, at the sideof Nazi Germany and Japan forming the Axis Alliance, ended inmilitary defeat, economic destruction and civil war. In the yearsthat followed, Italy abolished the monarchy, reinstated democracy,and enjoyed a prolonged economic boom, thus becoming one of themost developed nations in the world,[5][14][15][16][17] with thefifth largest economy by nominal GDP by the early 1990s. Italy wasa founding member of NATO in 1949 and one of the Inner Six of theEuropean Community in 1957, which became the EU in 1993. It is partof the Schengen Area, and has been a member of the Eurozone since1999.
Gothic architecture Puzzle 1.23 APK
Gothic architecture is a style of architecture that flourishedduring the high and late medieval period. It evolved fromRomanesque architecture and was succeeded by Renaissancearchitecture. Originating in 12th-century France and lasting intothe 16th century, Gothic architecture was known during the periodas Opus Francigenum ("French work") with the term Gothic firstappearing during the later part of the Renaissance. Itscharacteristics include the pointed arch, the ribbed vault and theflying buttress. Gothic architecture is most familiar as thearchitecture of many of the great cathedrals, abbeys and churchesof Europe. It is also the architecture of many castles, palaces,town halls, guild halls, universities and to a less prominentextent, private dwellings.It is in the great churches andcathedrals and in a number of civic buildings that the Gothic stylewas expressed most powerfully, its characteristics lendingthemselves to appeals to the emotions, whether springing from faithor from civic pride. A great number of ecclesiastical buildingsremain from this period, of which even the smallest are oftenstructures of architectural distinction while many of the largerchurches are considered priceless works of art and are listed withUNESCO as World Heritage Sites. For this reason a study of Gothicarchitecture is largely a study of cathedrals and churches.A seriesof Gothic revivals began in mid-18th-century England, spreadthrough 19th-century Europe and continued, largely forecclesiastical and university structures, into the 20th century.
Message Bottle Puzzle 1.23 APK
A message in a bottle is a form of communication whereby a messageis sealed in a container (archetypically a glass bottle, but couldbe any medium, so long as it floats and remains waterproof) andreleased into the sea or ocean. Among other purposes they are usedfor scientific studies of ocean currents.The first recordedmessages in bottles were released around 310 BC by the AncientGreek philosopher Theophrastus, as part of an experiment to showthat the Mediterranean Sea was formed by the inflowing AtlanticOcean.[1][unreliable source]On his return to Spain following hisfirst voyage to the New World, Christopher Columbus's ship entereda severe storm. Columbus threw a report of his discovery along witha note asking it to be passed on to the Queen of Castile, in asealed cask into the sea, hoping the news would make it back evenif he did not survive. In fact, Columbus survived and the sealedreport was never found, or, at least, its discovery neverreported.[verification needed]In the 16th century, the Englishnavy, among others, used bottle messages to send ashore informationabout enemy positions. Queen Elizabeth I even created an officialposition of "Uncorker of Ocean Bottles", and anyone else openingthe bottles could face the death penalty.[2][dubious – discuss]In1784 Chunosuke Matsuyama sent a message detailing his and 43shipmates' shipwrecking in a bottle that washed ashore and wasfound by a Japanese seaweed collector in 1935, in the village ofHiraturemura, the birthplace of Chunosuke Matsuyama.[3]Since 1876,people have often used messages adrift in containers to communicatefrom the remote Scottish island of St Kilda. [4]In 1914, BritishWorld War I soldier Private Thomas Hughes tossed a green gingerbeer bottle containing a letter to his wife into the EnglishChannel. He was killed two days later fighting in France. In 1999,fisherman Steve Gowan dredged up the bottle in the River Thames.Although the intended recipient of the letter had died in 1979, itwas delivered in 1999 to Private Hughes' 86-year old daughterliving in New Zealand.[5]In February 1916 the doomed crew ofZeppelin L 19 dropped their last messages to their superiors andloved ones into the North Sea. These washed up on the Kattegatcoast near Gothenburg, Sweden six months later.[6]In December 1945,American World War II veteran Frank Hayostek tossed a bottle overthe side of his ship. It was recovered by an Irish milk maid, BredaO'Sullivan who set off an exchange of letters that lasted sevenyears before the two finally met amid an international mediacircus. Despite (or perhaps because of) the media attention, thetwo were never able to get their romance off the ground.In May 2005eighty-eight shipwrecked migrants were rescued off the coast ofCosta Rica. They had placed an SOS message in a bottle and tied itto one of the long lines of a passing fishing boat.[7]On June 10,1914, a scientist from the Glasgow (Scotland) School of Navigationcast 1,890 bottles into the ocean to test undercurrents in the seasaround Scotland. One of those bottles was recovered in 2012, andwas confirmed by Guinness World Records to be the oldest message ina bottle ever found—98 years.[8] The bottle was found east ofShetland by Andrew Leaper, skipper of the Shetland-based vesselCopious, the same fishing vessel involved in the previous recordrecovery.[9]That previous record was a find that spent 92 years 229days at sea. A bottom drift bottle, numbered 423B, was released at60° 50'N 00° 38'W (about halfway between Aberdeen, Scotland and thecoast of Denmark) on April 25, 1914 and recovered by fisherman MarkAnderson of Bixter, Shetland, UK, on December 10, 2006.
