Today In History, 14 December 1911

Norwegian Roald Amundsen becomes the first explorer to reach the South Pole, beating his British rival, Robert Falcon Scott.

After his historic Antarctic journey, Amundsen established a successful shipping business. He later made attempts to become the first explorer to fly over the North Pole. In 1925, in an airplane, he flew within 150 miles of the goal.

This block bounded by Charlotte Street, Linn Street, York Street, and Baymiller Street in Cincinnati’s West End is the outcome of over three quarters of a century of disinvestment due to the race and ethnicity of the people who called the area home. Developed as a mixed-income mixed-use area during the mid-to-late 19th Century, the area thrived into the early 20th Century, but when the city’s Jewish and African Diaspora residents moved into the area, it was targeted by redlining and city planning that didn’t have any regard for the people living here and considered them “undesirable,” something that many northern cities also did at the same time. Today, Cincinnati remains quite segregated, though not as bad as cities like Detroit, Chicago, and Cleveland. However, the poverty rate for residents of Sub-Saharan African Descent in the area remains about three times higher than the area’s population of European Descent, and the West End, the historic beating heart of the area’s African Diaspora population, has been hit hard by policies that, though no longer in effect on paper, still have a lingering impact. This block, with several dilapidated, Run-down, and boarded up buildings, some missing their roofs, is the end result of policies that hit already disadvantaged communities hard, and planning that sought to empty the downtown basin of its residents during the 20th Century. Hopefully, this area can have a future better than what has happened to it over the past half century, but it still struggles with a high rate of poverty and is home to many vacant and crumbling historic buildings, which once made up a vibrant neighborhood, only two blocks from the historic mansions of Dayton Street and three blocks from the Findlay Market area, which are being reinvigorated at a very rapid pace.

Historic edifice constructed to house the Imperial Diet of the German Empire from 1894 to 1933 until partially damage during bombing of World War II. It's been reconstructed again at 1970 and now served as the meeting place of the Bundestag (“Federal Assembly”), the lower house of Germany's national legislature.

Поездка в Мухрани сильно заинтриговала меня. Кто такие эти знаменитые Багратион-Мухранские и почему не просто Багратиони?
.

Грузия не всегда была единой. Частенько в истории страны княжества были разделены между наследниками царской династии Багратиони, между которыми, как водится, перманентно велись междуусобные войны. Так в начале XVI века 
Картли и Кахети были самостоятельными царствами и имели своих правителей Багратионов.
Царь Кахетии Гиорги II, который прославился своей жестокостью, часто совершал набеги на Картли, опустошая местные села. А вот царь Картли Давид X воинственностью не отличался, поэтому с кахетинцами воевал его брат Баграт, который за верную службу попросил себе в удел земли Мухранской долины вместе с мохевами и мтиулами (жителями ущелий и гор). Так, в 1513 году долина Мухрани становится самостоятельным владением Самухранбатоно, а семья, владеющая им с этого момента начинает носить имя Мухран-Батони (господа Мухранские). Через какое-то время эти господа (как это часто бывает), воспользовавшись слабостью царя превратили свое удельное владение (сабатоно) в автономное княжество (сатавадо) и стали именовать себя тавади - князья.
В том же 1513 году, наш Баграт строит на горе Мтверскую (Ксанскую) крепость (на фото), которая выдержала осаду кахетинцев. Их царь был захвачен в плен и заточен в крепости, где и умер. 
Уже правнук Баграта Вахтанг впоследствии был усыновлен бездетным царем Картли Ростомом и объявлен наследником престола. В 1658 году он становится царем Картли Вахтангом V и подчиняет себе Кахети и Имерети, таким образом объединив под своей властью всю Грузию, хоть и совсем ненадолго. 
А Мухранское княжество Вахтанг отдает во владение своему брату Константину, который и стал предком всех последующих князей Мухранских.
Потомки Вахтанга V, старшей линии дома Мухранских удерживали престол Картли до 1724 года, когда при вторжении турок-османов царь Картли Вахтанг VI вместе со своей семьей бежал в Россию. Там они пополнили ряды русской знати, и стали одними из самых известных ее представителей. ⬇️⬇️⬇️

McMicken Avenue in the upper portion of Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood is one of the most charming intact historic streetscapes in the city. Lined with mid-to-late 19th Century Italianate-style buildings, the roadway was originally part of the old Hamilton Road, which predates the city and was originally a trail used by the native Miami people. The area developed alongside the Miami and Erie Canal, which connected the Ohio River at Cincinnati with Lake Erie at Toledo, and allowed for easy transportation. The buildings in this area still remain a mix of sizes and shapes, as well as mixed income, with a few being run down or abandoned, something that does need addressing, but is fortunately being taken care of by local preservation groups, including the Cincinnati Preservation Collective and OTR Adopt. One building in particular is in very sad shape, a townhouse-turned-multi-unit apartment building that suffered a fire last year, and has not yet been repaired, which is one of the Cincinnati Preservation Collective’s 2018 Impact Buildings, which they are aiming to save. Hopefully, this area will soon get the attention it deserves, as it is one of the most charming and notable corridors in the city. Cincinnati, OH, US

Visiting a National Treasure, enjoying fully the beautiful era of 1880ies in the living now. Wonderful to see craftmanship on walls, tapestry and curtains, furniture and crystal chandeliers — I just endulged my senses and kept the abundance in memory. Photographing was sadly not allowed. #näässlott #nationaltreasure #lovingtheliving #tapestry #1880s #historic #building

Sultan Orhan (سلطان اورخان) is the WARRIOR of the Ottoman Empire because of his conquests, he gave the future sultans a bridgehead into Europe. Born in 1281, Orhan was the eldest son of Osman I, who just like his father, conducted many battles in his life. In 1321, he conquered towns on the coast of Marmara. In 1323/4 or 1326, Orhan became sultan. In 1326, he conquered Bursa and made it the first official capital. In 1329, Byzantines tried to retake Bursa, but was defeated by Orhan at Pelekanon. Orhan conquered Nicaea (1331) and Nicomedia (1337) completing the conquest of Bithynia, giving him access to the Asian Bosphorus. In 1345, Balıkesir, a Muslim kingdom in civil war was annexed by Orhan, giving him access to the Asian Dardanelles and Aegean Sea. After, Orhan perfected the civil and military institutions, schools and mosques. Then conquered Ankara (1354) and Gallipoli (1354), making Gallipoli the first Ottoman stronghold in Europe. In 1362, Orhan passed away in Bursa at the age of 80, after a reign of 36/9 years, where his son, Murad I succeeded him. #alrashidunhistory #islam #islamic #islamichistory #muslim #muslimah #quran #hadith #sunnah #history #historic #art #historical #allah #ottoman #turkey #ottomanempire #osmanli #erdoğan #receptayyiperdoğan #muhammad #osmanlı #muslimhistory #turkiye
