The Abduction of Persephone | The Abduction of Charlotte by Baron Meier Link
Hades, god of the Underworld, fell in love with Persephone and wanted her as his bride. His brother Zeus consented to the marriage—or at least refused to oppose it. Yet he warned Hades that Demeter would never approve this coupling, for she would not want her daughter spirited off to a sunless world. At Zeus’s suggestion—or with his tacit understanding—Hades resolved to abduct the maiden.
Persephone was gathering flowers one day on a plain in Sicily. Hades suddenly appeared, thundering across the plain in his four-horse chariot. The god swooped down upon Persephone, scooped her up with one arm. The appearance, abduction, and disappearance happened so swiftly that none of Persephone’s companions witnessed the kidnapping. And though she called out to them—and plaintively called for her mother—no one heard her pleas. The earth opened up before Hades’ chariot and the god drove the jet-black horses down into the chasm. As Hades and Persephone disappeared into the depths, the hole closed up behind them.

Los Angeles is, without a doubt, home to the tastiest, widest varieties of tacos north of the Mexican border. It may be virtually impossible to find an objective list and come to a consensus because we all have our own preferences. Moreover, there are just an endless array of choices in LA.
Of the handful of my taco establishments in LA that I have tried, I still find it very difficult to chose my ten best. If, however, I was forced to pick my favorites the following taco gems have to make my top 10…for now.

Pocho, the 5.2 meter (17 feet) long friendly crocodile!
You’ve already met Gustave the killer croc, now it’s time to meet Pocho.
Costa Rican fisherman Chito first met the croc after finding him with a gunshot wound on the banks of the Central American state’s Parismina river 20 years ago. He had been shot in the left eye by a cattle farmer and was close to death. But Chito enlisted the help of several pals to load the massive reptile into his boat and later give him aid and treatment.
In the words of Chito, “When I found Pocho in the river he was dying, so I brought him into my house. He was very skinny, weighing only around 150 lb. I gave him chicken and fish and medicine for six months to help him recover. I stayed by Pocho’s side while he was ill, sleeping next to him at night. I just wanted him to feel that somebody loved him, that not all humans are bad. It meant a lot of sacrifice. I had to be there every day. It took years before Chito felt that Pocho had bonded with him enough to get closer to the animal.”
At one point during his recovery, Chito left the croc in a lake near his house but to his amazement Pocho started following him. Later, Chito got the confidence to get closer to him, with first only attempting to splash with him in the river but later they bonded so well that for almost 2 decades the duo performed tricks for the local crowds.
But in October 2011, Pocho, around 50 years old at that time, died of natural causes and a funeral was held for him.
At his funeral, Chito couldn’t held back his tears and said, “Pocho is Pocho, the only one. There is no more Pocho. He will be the only Pocho there ever was.”there’s … something in my eye …

- Interesting though brief interview.
Expérience menée à Denver : congestion du trafic pour transporter seulement 35 personnes. L’automobile peut transporter 4 ou 5 personnes en théorie, mais en fait le taux d’occupation moyen des voitures en agglomération ne dépasse pas 1,2 personne par voiture. Chaque voiture occupe environ 10 m² à l’arrêt, mais en fait beaucoup plus en mouvement.

Le nombre total de personnes transportées dépasse la cinquantaine, alors que le trafic reste fluide, à la différence de la première photo, montrant une congestion du trafic pour un transport de 35 personnes seulement.
