Etymology[ edit ] The English word “stirrup” stems from Old English stirap, stigrap, Middle English stirop, styrope,  i. Depiction of a Kushan divinity using an early platform-style stirrup, circa AD The stirrup, which gives greater stability to a rider, has been described as one of the most significant inventions in the history of warfare , prior to gunpowder. As a tool allowing expanded use of horses in warfare , the stirrup is often called the third revolutionary step in equipment, after the chariot and the saddle. The basic tactics of mounted warfare were significantly altered by the stirrup. A rider supported by stirrups was less likely to fall off while fighting, and could deliver a blow with a weapon that more fully employed the weight and momentum of horse and rider. Among other advantages, stirrups provided greater balance and support to the rider, which allowed the knight to use a sword more efficiently without falling, especially against infantry adversaries. Contrary to common modern belief, however, it has been asserted that stirrups actually did not enable the horseman to use a lance more effectively cataphracts had used lances since antiquity , though the cantled saddle did. Such a configuration was suitable for the warm climate of south and central India where people used to ride horses barefoot. Smith suggests they are pendant cloths, while Thayer suggests that, considering the fact that the Parthians were famous for their mounted archery, the objects are stirrups, but adds that it is difficult to imagine why the Romans would never have adopted the technology.

Instead, aggressive White androphobes of all genders which I can no longer count are decimating the philogynous and egalitarian West. Equality psychos are tearing down the most egalitarian society that ever existed except for initial communist experiments, before they turned bloody. American Jews, at the apex of the greatest fortune and philosemitic tolerance their long diaspora has ever bestowed on their kind, are busy supporting all the ideologies and policies that demolish their safe harbor and build up their Muslim, Black and Third World enemies.

It was erected by Messrs. Cubitt, after the designs of Philip Hardwick, Esq. The proportions of this splendid erection are gigantic, and the portico may be considered the largest in Europe, if not in the world. The diameter of the columns is eight feet six inches; their height forty-two feet; the intercolumniation twenty-eight feet, forming the carriage entrance; and the total height, to the apex of the pediment, seventy two feet.
It is built of Bramley Fall stone; of which, in this erection alone, above 75, cubic feet were consumed. Another very noticeable change would be to the size and speed of the rolling stock, made possible, in part, by the heavy around lbs per yard continuous welded steel rail laid on pre-stressed concrete sleepers in a bed of crushed granite ballast.

They then had to search for the building it resembled, the Altare della Patria which locals call “the Typewriter”, before they could continue. The Detour was a choice between Gladiator and Charioteer; for both Detours, teams dressed up in ancient Roman costume. In Gladiator, teams learned a series of sword maneuvers to “battle” a seasoned gladiator, to receive their next clue. If teams strayed from the battle sequence they were taught, they had to start over.

And as it turned out there was plenty of time for Christmas shopping during this last month, because there was precious little fishing to be done. December opened with a few days in which the main Wye was much too high, but a grayling day was certainly possible on some of the tributaries. Next came heavy rain which put all our rivers without exception into flood, then equally heavy snowfall and a severe cold snap which seemed to disrupt life in the Welsh Marches more than any other part of the country – Shawbury Airfield in Shropshire recorded minus 13 degrees one night with a northern wind blowing.
All this precipitation was followed by warmer weather, but the steady thaw kept all our rivers running full for quite a while. It was a brief but welcome respite and quite a warm day, despite continuous drizzle. More rain fell during Christmas night and the river quickly rose again. After Boxing Day, more snow, more rain, then a gradual thaw which kept the rivers running fuller than ever; there were no more fishing chances during On the 1st of December PA from Bridgnorth was unlucky enough to lose a rod with reel and line somewhere below the bridge at Lyepole.
As I recall, the Lugg was already going quite hard then, but I’m sure this should turn up sooner or later.
Spare some change for the BNP? Let it not be said that here at Sump we’re afraid to tackle a little controversy. In fact, we love it, especially when it comes from the British National Party; the party that everyone loves to hate—or is that hates to love? To that end, we’ve just received a press release from BNP chairman Nick Griffin complete with an attached begging bowl seeking funds.
Fifty-two year old Griffin is already a Member of the European Parliament North West England and now he’s campaigning to seize control of the London Assembly; that august body of never-do-wells who run the political machinery underpinning one of the greatest cities on earth. Only, the way Nick’s carrying on at the moment, it looks more likely that he’s gonna find himself not in the mayors seat but in jail for stirring up some serious racial hatred at a time when tensions are higher than they’ve been in a generation.

Это было справедливо, но Элвин заметил скрытую нотку страха в голосе Хедрона. При других обстоятельствах он бы повел себя более разумно, но острое осознание собственной доблести, помноженное на презрение к робости Хедрона, погнало Элвина. Зайдя так далеко, глупо было возвращаться, когда цель, быть может, уже была совсем близка. – Я иду в этот туннель, – сказал он упрямо, словно призывая Хедрона остановить.
– Я хочу посмотреть, куда он Он решительно двинулся вперед вдоль стрелы, светившейся у них под ногами, и после секундного колебания Шут последовал Едва вступив в туннель, они ощутили знакомую тягу перистальтического поля и мгновенно были втянуты в его глубину.

Он заметил слабые полоски, какие-то штрихи вдоль границ континентов — далеко в глубине того, что он принял за океаны. Он,пригляделся и тотчас же исполнился сомнением, потому что значение таких же вот линий было ему слишком хорошо известно. Он уже видел такие же раньше — в пустыне за пределами Диаспара, и они теперь сказали ему, что путешествие к планете оказалось напрасным. — Она такая же сухая, как и Земля. — упавшим голосом выдохнул Олвин.
— Вся ее вода исчезла.
Исчезновение этого единственного процента изменило рисунок человеческого общества и значение таких слов, как отец и мать, но влечение сохранилось, хотя теперь удовлетворение его преследовало цель ничуть не более глубокую, нежели любое другое чувственное наслаждение. Олвин покинул своих резвящимся сверстников и пошел дальше, к центру Парка.
Он ступал по едва намеченным тропинкам, которые, пересекаясь, вились сквозь низкорослый кустарник и время от времени ныряли в узкие расщелины между огромными, обросшими лишайником валунами.

Но альтернативы они не Семя, брошенное Элвином, начало прорастать куда быстрее, чем он имел основания надеяться. Когда друзья достигли Шалмираны, горы еще купались в тени.
С высоты нескольких километров чаша крепости выглядела совсем маленькой: казалось невероятным, что судьба Земли некогда зависела от этого крошечного черного круга.
Элвин остановил корабль среди руин у края озера, и картина запустения вызвала тоску в его душе. Он открыл люк, и в корабль прокралась мертвенная тишина.
Хилвар, почти не разговаривавший в течение всего полета, спокойно спросил: – Для чего ты снова явился. Элвин ответил, когда они почти подошли к краю озера. Он – Я хотел показать тебе, на что способен этот корабль. И еще я надеялся, что полип возродился; я чувствую себя в долгу перед ним и хотел бы рассказать о своих открытиях.
– В таком случае, – возразил Хилвар, – тебе придется подождать. Ты вернулся слишком рано. Элвин ожидал этого: шансы были очень малы, и он не испытал большого разочарования.
