Christ The Redemeer Statue Rio De Janeiro-Brazil|Mehak Iqbal

CHRIST THE REDEEMER STATUE RIO DE JANEIRO

Christ the Redeemer is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. It lies high on the Corcovado Mountain overlooking Rio with his arms outstretched in benediction. It was completed in 1931 and stands about 130 ft (39 m) tall and the arms measure 98 ft (30 m) across. It has become a symbol of the city and of the warmth of the Brazilian people, who receive visitors with open arms. The statue is the largest Art Deco-style sculpture in the world. It is one of the world’s best known monuments and was built as a symbol of Brazilian Christianity. In 1850, the idea of building a religious monument was first suggested by a Catholic Priest. It was designed by Brazilian Heitor da Silva Costa and created by French sculptor Paul Landowski. It wasn’t until 1920 when a group petitioned for support to build a landmark statue that it became a reality. The design was chosen from several ideas and construction began in the 1920s, taking nine years to finish. It was completed and inaugurated in 1931.

SOME AMAZING FACTS ABOUT CHRIST-THE REDEEMER:

  • It is located in the Tijuca Forest National Forest.
  • The statue weighs approximately 635 tones.
  • The statue is considered an icon of Rio de Janeiro and Brazil.
  • Christ the Redeemer is the 5th largest statue of Jesus.
  • The materials used to build Christ the Redeemer were reinforced in a physical form and soapstone.
  • The money to build Christ the Redeemer came from Brazil’s Catholic community.
  • The chosen statue is meant to show that Christ loves all and will embrace all that come to him by statue’s open arms.
  • The statue was officially opened on October 12, 1931.
  • It was impossible to construct the statue in a single step so it was first constructed in pieces and then was carried to the top of the moutain and set upright.
  • The statue is build from the stones which were brought by Sweden.
  • The idea that how the statue should look like was chosen from several designs like one was a depiction of the Christian cross. Another was a statue of Jesus holding a globe, while standing over a pedestal that was to symbolize the world.
  • Once this statue was alsi deliberately destroyed by a housepainter who sprayed head and right arm with graffiti but later the culprit was identified.
  • Its restoration work was conducted through an agreement among several organizations.
  • The statue was struck by lightning during a violent thunderstorm on February 10, 2008, and suffered some damage to the fingers, head and eyebrows.

At night the statue is lit up and seemingly hovers over the city as the mountain it stands on is dark. If it is cloudy the clouds light up and the effect can be quite spectacular and extremely delicate.
To reach the statue people take the cog train to the top of mountain. This train enables us to experience some spectacular views if you sit on the right hand side.
Taxis can also help us in a great way to visit the statue and if there is more than one of us it should be easy to obtain or bring about the fee, for a return trip and waiting time. Taxi would also work out much cheaper than the cog train.

Even 2,000 years after it was built, and despite centuries when the abandoned building was pillaged for building materials, it is instantly recognizable It was the first permanent amphitheater to be raised in Rome, and the most impressive arena the Classical world had yet seen.

The Truth About The Bermuda Triangle!|Amir GM

The Bermuda Triangle is a large area of ocean between Florida, Puerto Rico, and Bermuda. Over the last few centuries, it’s thought that dozens of ships and planes have disappeared under mysterious circumstances in the area, earning it the nickname “The Devil’s Triangle.” People have even gone so far as to speculate that it’s an area of extra-terrestrial activity or that there is some bizarre natural scientific cause for the region to be hazardous; but most likely, it’s simply an area in which people have experienced a lot of bad luck—the idea of it being a “vortex of doom” is no more real than Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster (see The Origin of the Bigfoot Legend and The Origin of the Loch Ness Monster).

Reported compass issues in the region gave rise to the myth that compasses will all be off in the Triangle, which isn’t correct, or at least is an exaggeration of what is actually happening as you’ll see.  Despite this, in 1970 the U.S. Coast Guard, attempting to explain the reasons for disappearances in the Triangle, stated:

“First, the “Devil’s Triangle” is one of the two places on earth that a magnetic compass does point towards true north. Normally it points toward magnetic north. The difference between the two is known as compass variation. The amount of variation changes by as much as 20 degrees as one circumnavigates the earth. If this compass variation or error is not compensated for, a navigator could find himself far off course and in deep trouble.”

In 2005, the Coast Guard revisited the issue after a TV producer in London inquired about it for a program he was working on.  In this case, they correctly changed their tune about the magnetic field bit stating,

“Many explanations have cited unusual magnetic properties within the boundaries of the Triangle. Although the world’s magnetic fields are in constant flux, the “Bermuda Triangle” has remained relatively undisturbed.  It is true that some exceptional magnetic values have been reported within the Triangle, but none to make the Triangle more unusual than any other place on Earth.”

Bermuda Triangle Theory

However, critic Larry Kusche, who published The Bermuda Triangle Mystery: Solved in 1975, argued that other authors had exaggerated their numbers and hadn’t done any proper research. They presented some disappearance cases as “mysteries” when they weren’t mysteries at all, and some reported cases hadn’t even happened within the Bermuda Triangle.

The book did such a thorough job of debunking the myth that it effectively ended most of the Bermuda Triangle hype. When authors like Berlitz and others were unable to refute Kusche’s findings, even the most steadfast of believers had difficulty remaining confident in the sensationalized Bermuda Triangle narrative. Nevertheless, many magazine articles, TV shows, and movies have continued to feature the Bermuda Triangle.
