Here's a piece in #NDEAM history you might not know: Congress passed the Vocational Rehabilitation Amendments of 1954, increasing the scope of the VR system. Targeting people who could proceed or return to work with assistance, VR helped thousands of people obtain employment. Mary Switzer, Director of the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation at the time, used this authority to fund more than 100 university-based rehabilitation programs. The Act also initiates funding for research, eventually leading to the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research.

«Путь теперь у нас один в королевство Хэллоуин…» ⠀ 
Хэллоуин по праву можно назвать самым загадочным праздником. Ни с одним из дней в году не связано такое количество суеверий и легенд. Существуют даже правила, которым надо следовать в ночь 31 октября.
⠀
1.Не выходите из дома одни и не говорите с незнакомцами. Как известно, в эту ночь вся нечистая сила выходит на улицы и кем окажется ваш новый спутник остается только гадать.
⠀
2.Чтобы защитить дом от злых духов, нужно украсить помещение орехами и зажечь хотя бы несколько свечей.
⠀
3.Если в доме обнаружен паук, то ни в коем случае нельзя убивать его. Рекомендуется аккуратно вынести существо на улицу. Убить паука – значить лишить дом защиты.
⠀
4. В праздничную ночь нельзя оставлять сушащимся белье, даже если сушилка стоит на балконе. Если человек наденет на себя такую одежду, то навлечет несчастье на себя и свою семьи. Одежду, которую забыли снять в «страшную» ночь, нужно заново постирать. Вода смоет весь негатив и все будет в порядке.
⠀
5.Обратите внимание на сны, которые снятся в эту ночь. Увидеть воду, зеркало или камень – к большой удаче. 
И маленький совет для хитрецов. Если хотите обмануть духов, стоит выходит из жилища спиной вперед.
⠀
А вы любите Хэллоуин? Отмечали его когда-нибудь?

Black Moriah, a horse-drawn hearse trimmed in sterling silver and 24k gold. Today it is housed in the Bird Cage Theater Museum in Tombstone, AZ. But from 1881-1917, it carried everyone who died in the town known as “The Town Too Tough To Die,” except for 6, to Boot Hill Cemetery from the Watt and Tarbell Undertaking Parlor. One of 8  built by the Cunningham Bros. In 1881 in Rochester, NY, it is the only one of those 8 that is left. #tombstonearizona #boothill #shootoutattheokcorral #towntootoughtodie #horsedrawnhearse #hearse #funerary #historylives #thestoriesitcouldtell #thewildwildwest #wyattearp #cowboys #gunfights #historyfacts #historynerd #ghoststories

Памятник императрице Екатерине Второй воздвигнут в 1907 году в центре площади Островского в Санкт-Петербурге на Невском проспекте. Специально для ландшафтного оформления монументально-скульптурной композиции, вокруг нее разбит Александринский сквер.

Фигура императрицы гармонично воспринимается со всех ракурсов, с лицевой стороны она в своем точном портретном сходстве, одетая в ниспадающие одежды, предстает перед нами всевластной царицей. В правой руке она спокойно, но твердо держит жезл императорской власти, в левой руке покоится лавровый венок – символ величия и силы государственных деятелей всех времен и народов. Фигура ее одновременно торжественна и грациозна, она спокойна, но хочет идти вперёд.

Над памятником Екатерине II работал творческий коллектив архитекторов, художников, скульпторов, мастеров-литейщиков. Руководство проектом было поручено архитектору Д. И. Гримму, скульптурные композиции выполнили художник и скульптор М. О. Микешин, скульптор А. М. Опекушин, мастер-литейщик М. А. Чижов (выполнил скульптуру Екатерины), архитектор В. А. Шретер работал над бронзовым обрамлением монумента.

Right next to the Pegasus Bridge is the Café Gondrée, Pegasus Bridge Cafe, which I would highly recommend visiting. It is a small coffeehouse which has been in the Gondrée family since World War Two. Madame Gondrée who current runs the cafe was a young girl during the battle and will sit and tell her stories of the night and what her family did. Beautiful place of remembrance.

Otd, October 15, 1839, Queen Victoria proposed to the love of her life, Prince Albert, at Windsor Castle. This was three years after their first meeting and just five days after Albert arrived at Windsor. 
Victoria and Albert would remain married until Albert’s death in 1861, something Victoria would never recover from. 
Later that day, Albert wrote to Victoria saying, “How is it that I have deserved so much love, so much affection? I cannot get used to the reality of all that I see and hear, and have to believe that Heaven has sent me an angel whose brightness shall illuminate my life.” Here is Queen Victoria’s diary entry for this day, the day she proposed to her dearest Albert: “Saw my dear Cousins return safely from hunting. Wrote letters, & saw Esterhazy. — At about ½ p. 12, I sent for Albert, who came to the Closet, where I was alone, & after a few minutes I said, I thought he must be aware why I wished him & his brother to come here, & that it would make me too happy if he would consent to what I wanted (that he should marry me). We embraced each other over & over again & he was so kind & so affectionate. 
To feel I am loved by such an angel as Albert, is too great a happiness to describe, & I really felt it was the happiest & brightest moment in my life, which made up for all I had suffered & endured. I cannot say how I adore him & I shall strive to make him feel as little as possible the great sacrifice he is making. I told him I realized it was a sacrifice, which he would not allow. I then spoke of the great necessity of keeping our engagement a secret, excepting to his father, Uncle Leopold & Stockmar, to whom he said he would send a courier next day, also explaining that the marriage would have to be as early as the beginning of February. I asked Albert to fetch Ernest, which he did, & the latter congratulated us both warmly, & seemed very pleased, I feel the happiest of human beings. 
Ernest then said to me how perfect his brother was, & we talked so comfortably & happily together, till past 1, when I sent them off, & Ld Melbourne came to me...”

Yesterday's job was at Globe Mills conversion in Marrickville. It was originally Globe Worsted Mills, a wool mill, which at its peak employed more than 900 people. That was in the 1930s, when a great many consumer items could claim “made in Marrickville” status, including chocolate, fishing line, rugs, radios, saucepans, industrial machinery, lawn mowers, margarine, bathtubs and boots, according to the Dictionary of Sydney.

These days, the Globe is an impressive, residential block of 100 or so units designed by the award-winning firm, JPR Architects.

Perdana Menteri India Sri Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru memprotes pemerintah Inggris yang tak henti-hentinya mengirimkan serdadu-serdadu berbangsa India untuk menindas bangsa Indonesia yang tengah berjuang mempertahankan kemerdekaan mereka.

Nehru juga mengetok kawat kepada Maharaja Nepal supaya melarang warganya yang masuk dalam kesatuan-kesatuan Gurkha untuk mau dikirim ke Indonesia. “Kebencian rakyat India, karena pengiriman tentara Gurkha ke Indonesia adalah untuk turut melakukan penyembelihan terhadap bangsa Indonesia, saat ini telah mencapai puncaknya,” ujar Nehru,

The Fonthill Castle holds an array of different artifacts and pieces. From ancient Chinese architecture (first pic) to German colonial work. His library was for the most part filled to the brim with different books from adventures to his studies.

Dr. J Mortimer Granville saved many a doctor's hand. In the 1880s the main treatment for "hysteria" in women involved much labor, hand cramping, and possibly what we call carpal tunnel. The treatment was an orgasm. The invention was the vibrator which upon its creation was a largely medical device. #history #podcast #listen #show #soundcloud #apple #dirty #sexy #toys #medical #medicine #treatment #doctors #science #psychology #butnotreally #hysteria #thanks #savior #historybuff #historyfacts #victorian #interesting #dirtyhistory

The Bandung Conference in April of 1955 in Bandung, Indonesia included 29 countries from Africa and Asia. Its main goal was to promote the independence of these regions from their former colonial masters, both economically and politically. Bandung and this event are all interwoven in Eteka: Rise of the Imamba; a gritty, action packed historical thriller based on mercenaries during the Cold War and the 1990s.

Per visitare Berlino bisogna saper vedere anche quello che non c’è più e saper intuire una ingannevole realtà. Qui gli eventi sono cicatrici sul volto della storia, ma la loro capacità evocativa è intatta. A Berlino nulla resta più visibile di ciò che si cerca di cancellare.
