As a two-headed snake, it appears as the "serpent bar," an emblem of royal authority carried by rulers.
This double-headed rattlesnake serpent was used as a ceremonial chest ornament that may have been worn by a priest. In Mesoamerican culture, serpents were very important religious symbols; the shedding of their skin made them a symbol of rebirth and renewal.
This symbol represents rain from the ancient aztec culture. Rain was important to them becuase it was necessary for their agriculture and farming. It also related to the environment, which was signficant to the native people.
O k so we have been working on "totem poles" which is basically symbols of different parts of the world put on a pole so tha they can be pinned in a garden and be a symbol for the people that the symbol belongs too. i picked sudan and got a graveyard post to put as my symbol. It is originated from southern sudan from a trive named bongo. it singifies that there is a large number of graves instead of just one.
Well, recently I have been working on my Somalia symbol and slowly and painfully there has been progress. I found a symbol related to Somaliland. It's an actual sign in Hargeisa near the airport there. This symbol is very important to Somali people and mostly to the ones living in Somaliland because it depicts the region's self-declared independence although it remains unrecognized by any country or international organization.
Cambodian shadow theater has a long history, dating back over a thousand years to early Angkorian times. It is one of the most revered and loved art forms in the country, but, like many other cultural traditions, was nearly destroyed in the 1970's during the tyrannical reign of the Khmer Rouge. Efforts are being made to recover the lost history of shadow theater and bring it back to its former glory and popularity.
this is what i did, i played with my dog royes she looks like a tiger she has golden eyes and shes cute and i play tag with her i also give her treats.thats what i did with it
Earlier this week, Steven Schmitdkey from the US Census Bureau came to talk to us about how to use the GPS he loaned to us, and about some things to keep in mind when we go to Mission Trails. He explained lots of things and I have to admit, there were so many terms I didn't know.
A few terms that I didn't understand too well are:
- Topographic maps
- Magnetic Declination
- True North
So we made a googe earth life time line of places we have been to out of san diego. The places I've been to is Vietnam, Arizona, Hawaii, Sacramento, Santa Monica beach. We made a quick video and fly by's of the places we've been to and explained where we went and how it was and Why we went there.
In the making of a 2nd Drawdio for someone in the structure team, Well my first one had a short somewhere but then i fixed it, also i found out some stuff that wouldve caused the problem. So now since i know what to look for i can find out whats causing problems in the 2nd drawdio.
Making the drawdio i learned even more about electronics and the components involved in a circut. In the drawdio we use a circut board, two transistors, two resistors, four capacitors, a timer, a speaker and a lot of wire. The resistors we used were striped different colors meaning different amount of Ohms, the first of our resistors was sriped brown, black, orange, gold. Because of a symple system that is used to calculate what that means, I know that this particular resistor has the power of 10,000 Ohms.
