Did you know? Crown shyness is a naturally occurring phenomenon in some tree species where the upper most branches in a forest canopy avoid touching one another. The visual effect is striking as it creates clearly defined borders akin to cracks or rivers in the sky when viewed from below. Although the phenomenon was first observed in the 1920s, scientists have yet to reach a consensus on what causes it. According to Wikipedia it might simply be caused by the trees rubbing against one another, although signs also point to more active causes such as a preventative measure against shading (optimizing light exposure for photosynthesis) or even as a deterrent for the spread of harmful insects. ⇒Love ❤️, flow 💬, serve ✨⇐ . . . . . . . . . . . . . nature habitat geyser science amazing facts video natural italy sand wow instatag facts instafun instavideo videos spiritual beautiful london amazingfact memes mindblown fact magic insta sun trees tree: re An incredible phenomenon called 'Crown Shyness' where tree tops avoid touching and create the appearance of winding rivers Science Did you know?

Women were raped and crucified, people had horseshoes nailed to their feet as they were marched through the streets. Unspeakable atrocities were perpetrated. Yet almost no-one in the Islamic world, and too few in the West will acknowledge it even happened.</h2> <p>As the world continues to look on in dismay at the barbaric atrocities committed against Christian minorities by the Islamic State – the self-proclaimed new “caliphate” – today, April 24, marks the genocide of Armenian and other Christian minorities by Turkey’s Islamic Ottoman Empire, the last caliphate.</p> <p>Most <a href="http://www.anca.org/genocide/denial.php">American historians</a> who have examined the question agree that what the Armenians experienced was a deliberate, calculated genocide:</p> <p>More than one million Armenians perished as the result of execution, starvation, disease, the harsh environment, and physical abuse. A people who lived in eastern Turkey for nearly 3,000 years [that is, 2,500 years before the Islamic Turks invaded and occupied Anatolia, now known as “Turkey”] lost its homeland and was profoundly decimated in the first large-scale genocide of the twentieth century. At the beginning of 1915 there were some two million Armenians within Turkey; today there are fewer than 60,000.</p> <p>One-and-a-half million Armenians were eradicated. If early 20<sup>th</sup> century Turkey had had the apparatuses and technology to execute in mass – such as 1940s Germany’s gas chambers – the entire Armenian population could well have been annihilated.</p> <p>The atrocities suffered by Armenian and other Christian minorities are too long to list. As occurs under the current caliphate – the Islamic State – the Muslims of the Ottoman caliphate abducted, raped, and slaughtered or sold countless Christian women and children on the Muslim slave markets.</p> <p>Armenian Christians were also sadistically tortured – as Christians are today under the Islamic State.</p> <p>On <a href="http://www.frontpagemag.com/2015/lloyd-billingsley/the-islamic-state-then-and-now/">FrontPage Magazine</a>, Lloyd Billingsley writes:</p> <p>Torture squads would apply red-hot irons, tear off flesh with hot pincers, then pour boiled butter into the wounds. The soles of the feet would be beaten, slashed, and laced with salt. Dr. Mehmed Reshid tortured Armenians by nailing horseshoes to their feet and marching them through the streets. He also crucified them on makeshift crosses.</p> <p>The Muslims hacked Armenians to pieces and dashed infants on the rocks before their mothers. They burned bodies not for sanitary reasons but in search of gold coins they believed the Armenians had swallowed. The Muslims also tore apart the victims’ feces in the search for gold. U.S. consul Leslie Davis, a former attorney and journalist, documented the Islamic zeal.</p> <p>“We could all hear them piously calling upon Allah to bless them in their efforts to kill the hated Christians,” Davis wrote. “Night after night this same chant went up to heaven and day after day these Turks carried on their bloody work.” Around Lake Goeljik, Davis wrote, “thousands and thousands of Armenians, mostly innocent and helpless women and children, were butchered on its shores and barbarously mutilated.”</p> <p>In her memoir, Ravished Armenia, <a href="http://www.genocide-museum.am/eng/online_exhibition_6.php">Aurora Mardiganian</a> described being raped and thrown into a harem – <a href="http://www.raymondibrahim.com/islam/muhammad-and-islams-sex-slaves/">akin to the experiences of today’s non-Muslims under Islamic State authority</a>.</p> <p>Unlike thousands of other Armenian girls who were killed after being defiled, she managed to escape. She recalls seeing <a href="http://books.google.com/books?id=r_O_lkCGHOsC&amp;pg=PA107&amp;lpg=PA107&amp;dq=%E2%80%9CEach+girl+had+been+nailed+alive+upon+her+cross,+spikes+through+her+feet+and+hands,%E2%80%9D&amp;source=bl&amp;ots=610-sOzCgq&amp;sig=3Na9l_6_2Bci2ulLu7HOFVxsYD0&amp;hl=en&amp;sa=X&amp;ei=cAp4UYyRIqXriwK0rYGICw&amp;ved=0CEAQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&amp;q=%E2%80%9CEach%20girl%20had%20been%20nailed%20alive%20upon%20her%20cross%2C%20spikes%20through%20her%20feet%20and%20hands%2C%E2%80%9D&amp;f=false">16 Christian girls crucified</a> in Malatia: “Each girl had been nailed alive upon her cross, spikes through her feet and hands, only their hair blown by the wind, covered their bodies.”</p> <p>Because there is no dearth of evidence concerning the historical reality of the Armenian Genocide, 44 U.S. States have recognized it. South Dakota, which recently joined the list, <a href="http://armenianweekly.com/2015/02/26/south-dakota/">passed a resolution</a> in February 2015 calling on</p> <p>Congress and the president of the United States to formally and consistently recognize and reaffirm the historical truth that the atrocities committed against the Armenian, Greek, and other Christians living in their historical homelands in Anatolia constituted genocide and to work towards equitable, stable, and durable Armenian-Turkish relations.</p> <p>Turkey, of course, continues to deny that its forbears ever committed any genocide. As a group of American academics <a href="http://www.anca.org/assets/pdf/armenian_genocide_reference/professionalethics_lifton.pdf">wrote back in 1995</a>,</p> <p>Despite the vast amount of evidence that points to the historical reality of the Armenian Genocide – eyewitness accounts, official archives, photographic evidence, the reports of diplomats, and the testimony of survivors – denial of the Armenian Genocide by successive regimes in Turkey has gone on from 1915 to the present.</p> <p>Nor is the Islamic government of Turkey alone in denying the genocide. President Obama still refuses to acknowledge it – even though when he was running for office in 2008 <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/20081117033141/http:/www.barackobama.com/2008/01/19/barack_obama_on_the_importance.php">he professed his</a>:</p> <p>firmly held conviction that the Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion, or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence. The facts are undeniable….  [A]s President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide….  America deserves a leader who speaks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide and responds forcefully to all genocides. I intend to be that president.</p> <p>Since taking office, Obama has refused to stand by his word. On Tuesday, April 21, the White House announced that it would again, for the seventh year since Obama’s pledge, not use the word “genocide,” thereby disappointing many human rights activists.</p> <p>Writes the <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/22/world/europe/white-house-acknowledges-armenian-genocide-but-avoids-the-term.html?_r=0">New York Times</a>:</p> <p>The president’s continued resistance to the word stood in contrast to a stance by Pope Francis, who recently called the massacres “the first genocide of the 20th century” and equated them to mass killings by the Nazis and Soviets. The European Parliament, which first recognized the genocide in 1987, passed a resolution last week calling on Turkey to “come to terms with its past.”</p> <p>The Armenian National Committee of America responded by saying: “The president’s surrender represents a national disgrace. It is a betrayal of the truth, and it is a betrayal of trust.”  The Armenian Assembly of America said “His failure to use the term genocide represents a major blow for human rights advocates.”</p> <p>But the president’s actions are consistent in other ways. Put differently, it is no marvel that Obama denies the genocide of Armenian and other Christian minorities at the hands of Muslims from a century ago, when one considers that he denies the rampant Muslim persecution of Christians taking place under – <a href="http://www.raymondibrahim.com/muslim-persecution-of-christians/confirmed-u-s-chief-facilitator-of-christian-persecution/">and often partly because of</a> – his leadership today.</p> <p>Raymond Ibrahim, a regular contributor to <a href="http://www.thecommentator.com/">The Commentator</a>, is author of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1621570258/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1621570258&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=uhurnetw-20">Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians</a></p> </blockquote> <p> “You care about getting people to believe as you do or die for refusing.” <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mmzaZqAtysnVR1iZrVV8erw">@impulsebyimpulse</a> I’m pretty sure that’s what the Caliphate did to the Armenians and what IS is doing now to their own enemies; are you really convinced this tumblr post is calling for the death of people who deny the Muslim involvement in these genocides and terror attacks?

President Obama still refuses to acknowledge it – even though when he was running for office in 2008 <a href="https://web.archive.org/web/20081117033141/http:/www.barackobama.com/2008/01/19/barack_obama_on_the_importance.php">he professed his</a>:</p> <p>firmly held conviction that the Armenian Genocide is not an allegation, a personal opinion, or a point of view, but rather a widely documented fact supported by an overwhelming body of historical evidence. The facts are undeniable….  [A]s President I will recognize the Armenian Genocide….  America deserves a leader who speaks truthfully about the Armenian Genocide and responds forcefully to all genocides. I intend to be that president.</p> <p>Since taking office, Obama has refused to stand by his word. On Tuesday, April 21, the White House announced that it would again, for the seventh year since Obama’s pledge, not use the word “genocide,” thereby disappointing many human rights activists.</p> <p>Writes the <a href="http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/22/world/europe/white-house-acknowledges-armenian-genocide-but-avoids-the-term.html?_r=0">New York Times</a>:</p> <p>The president’s continued resistance to the word stood in contrast to a stance by Pope Francis, who recently called the massacres “the first genocide of the 20th century” and equated them to mass killings by the Nazis and Soviets. The European Parliament, which first recognized the genocide in 1987, passed a resolution last week calling on Turkey to “come to terms with its past.”</p> <p>The Armenian National Committee of America responded by saying: “The president’s surrender represents a national disgrace. It is a betrayal of the truth, and it is a betrayal of trust.”  The Armenian Assembly of America said “His failure to use the term genocide represents a major blow for human rights advocates.”</p> <p>But the president’s actions are consistent in other ways. Put differently, it is no marvel that Obama denies the genocide of Armenian and other Christian minorities at the hands of Muslims from a century ago, when one considers that he denies the rampant Muslim persecution of Christians taking place under – <a href="http://www.raymondibrahim.com/muslim-persecution-of-christians/confirmed-u-s-chief-facilitator-of-christian-persecution/">and often partly because of</a> – his leadership today.</p> <p>Raymond Ibrahim, a regular contributor to <a href="http://www.thecommentator.com/">The Commentator</a>, is author of <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1621570258/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&amp;camp=1789&amp;creative=9325&amp;creativeASIN=1621570258&amp;linkCode=as2&amp;tag=uhurnetw-20">Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians</a></p> </blockquote> <p> “You care about getting people to believe as you do or die for refusing.” <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mmzaZqAtysnVR1iZrVV8erw">@impulsebyimpulse</a> I’m pretty sure that’s what the Caliphate did to the Armenians and what IS is doing now to their own enemies; are you really convinced this tumblr post is calling for the death of people who deny the Muslim involvement in these genocides and terror attacks? Get a grip, preferably in reality.<br/></p></blockquote> Sane person: &ldquo;So anyway this horrible genocide was committed by Muslims.&rdquo; <a class="tumblelog" href="https://tmblr.co/mmzaZqAtysnVR1iZrVV8erw">@impulsebyimpulse</a>: &ldquo;HOW DARE YOU BRING THAT UP! YOU JUST WANT AN EXCUSE FOR HATRED!&rdquo; Not every genocide was committed by Muslims, but this particular one was. It&rsquo;s a statement of fact and you don&rsquo;t get to get upset about it because it might make Muslims look bad.

Spoiler free review of Spider-man Homecoming: I need to see this movie a second time cause in my theater this dude had the most obnoxious laugh and then people were mumbling near me during the whole thing but even with all that extra noise I enjoyed it. The portrayal of Spider-man was incredibly real. This is an unfair advantage since he was only a year removed from being an actual teen but still other incarnations felt like acting this was just being a kid in highschool with super powers. I know people complain about Flash Thompson but that's a bully nowadays fam. I mean in 2017 jocks are way more concerned about getting good grades and making it to the school they want than bullying, of course there's some that carve time out but mostly it's the kids who have something over you but they're not that high up on the totem pole themselves. Vulture had such a great arc in the film it didn't feel underdeveloped and I love how they opposed him with Spider-man. I thought the pacing was way more akin to one of those early John Hughes films than an actual superhero movie which was a nice touch and Ironman is barely in it so suck on that haters. The Humor felt natural and not forced, the action was crazy intense, and Ned in particular was a standout. I'm not giving this movie a number cause it's really something you need to see and I know that if you have issues with Flash or with Tom's performance of Peter I believe it's mostly because you're not a kid anymore or you've lost that youth within you. Sounds corny but if you're grown up physically and mentally you might hate it. Also make sure to stay for the after credits scenes they're worth it. Turning off comments cause I got stuff to do today and I don't want someone to comment a spoiler and I miss it. marvel mcu marvelcomics comics spiderman spidermanhomecoming rottentomatoes johnhughes jonwatts tomholland peterparker review homecoming ironman vulture happy saturday meme auntmay tobeymaguire andrewgarfield: Follow us for more!
