a black hole is a region of space from which nothing, not even light, can escape.
despite the name, they are not empty but instead consist of a huge amount of matter packed densely into a small area, giving it an immense gravitational pull.
astronomers have taken the first ever image of a black hole, which is located in a distant galaxy yesterday. this is the first direct visual evidence that black holes exist and it looks like einstein is correct once again.
the black hole image captured by the event horizon telescope collaboration which name comes from the region of space beyond the black hole called the event horizon. this is a "point of no return", beyond which it is impossible to escape the gravitational effects of the black hole.

it is the egg that makes you think dinosaurs are still alive. i've seen an ostrich egg today and it reminded me a nostalgic animated series named denver the last dinosaur that aired during the late '80s or early '90s. what i remember most is the theme song describing the main character, an intelligent dinosaur.
a very warm and touching story about a curious fish who wants to discover the world, written by samed behrengi. the fish is so courageous that even if you don't exactly know whatever has happened to her in the end, you'll get inspired with this little creature.
also known as saka. the scythians were among the earliest peoples to master mounted warfare. they kept herds of horses, cattle and sheep, lived in tent-covered wagons (they were nomadic peoples) and fought with bows and arrows on horseback.
a mythological creature with the upper body of a human and the lower body and legs of a horse.
insight into how the centaur myth originated offers an interesting reflection on its early basis. the first and most effective race to use the horse in battle was the scythians, skilled archers who took full advantage of its speed and height to become a race beheld in terror and awe. it is claimed that when the greeks first saw the scythians they believed the horse and rider to be one, giving rise to imaginative and fear-inspired tales of the war-like centaur.
a sacred, praised and precious plant and fruit. it is mentioned several times in the bible and the quran. for example, an olive branch was brought back to noah by a dove to demonstrate that the flood was over in the book of genesis. and god swearing by olive because of its benefits in the surah at-tin which is the ninety-fifth surah of the quran.
olives provide me to be able to hope no matter what happens. how could it be? let me explain. first, raw or fresh olives are naturally very bitter. to make them edible, olives must be cured or fermented. so, you remove the bitter oleuropein. there are several ways for curing it like water curing, brining, dry curing and lye curing each yield distinctly different flavors and textures. all methods take time but especially for dry curing you wait at least two months to eat them. while waiting you need to shake it once or twice each day during this time. i know because i made it and thought that if i wasn't sure it would work, i wouldn't wait that long. imagine the very first human to face an olive tree. s/he picked an olive, it was bitter, spat it out and went on. that's what i would do. who will continue to try so long thinking that the taste of the olives will be good? i am giving the answer: a human who has hope does this kind of thing.
it is netflix's new superhero series and adaptation of the dark horse comic book. i have just finished season 1. it has lots of clichés but is still good and very immersive. i'm looking forward to seoson 2. i hope they don't fuck up the umbrella academy like heroes.
a tendency to set standards that are so high that they either cannot be met, or are only met with great difficulty. it seems there is no problem with that or people thinks perfectionism is a good thing. people are proud to say that they are perfectionists but actually there is no good thing in perfectionism. it is a bad habit and you should get rid of the bog of perfectionism. one of the natural consequences of perfectionism is procrastination which means you procrastinate just to do something at the “right” moment. you are constantly waiting for the “right” moment to work on your goals. you only want to start when you are “ready” so as to deliver your best quality of work. however, this state of “readiness” never seems to come sometimes. sometimes, it never comes as you perpetually wait just to get something done. so while you think you are a perfectionist you would be nothing but a damned lazy idiot.
