Wheel of Fortune (Tarot card)

Waite was a key figure in the development of the Tarot in line with the Hermetic magical-religious system which was also being developed at the time, and this deck, as well as being in common use today, also forms the basis for a number of other modern tarot decks. The Wheel Of Fortune card, like other cards of the Major Arcana , varies widely in depiction between Tarot decks. The card has been modeled ever since the tarot's inception in the 15th century after the medieval concept of Rota Fortunae , the wheel of the goddess Fortuna . Images generally show a six- or eight-spoked wheel, often attended or crested by an individual (sometimes human; sometimes a Sphinx -like half-human) attired in an Egyptian-style headdress.

Portrait of Leo X (Raphael)

topic

The Portrait of Pope Leo X with two Cardinals is a painting by the Italian High Renaissance master Raphael , c. 1517. It is housed in the Uffizi Gallery of Florence . In contrast to works depicting classical, idealised Madonnas and figures from antiquity, this portrait shows the sitter in a realistic manner. The Pope is depicted with the weight of late middle age, while his sight appears to be strained. The painting sets up a series of visual contradictions between appearance and reality, intended by Raphael to reflect the unrest of a period of turmoil for the papacy. Martin Luther had recently challenged papal authority, listing among other grievances, Leo X's method of selling indulgences to fund work on St Peter's . The pommel on top of the Pope's chair evokes the symbolic abacus balls of the Medici family , while the illuminated Bible open on the table has been identified as the Hamilton Bible . The cardinals are usually identified as Giulio di Giuliano de' Medici and Luigi de' Rossi . References Doak, R

Emu War

topic

The Emu War , also known as the Great Emu War , was a nuisance wildlife management military operation undertaken in Australia over the latter part of 1932 to address public concern over the number of emus said to be running amok in the Campion district of Western Australia . The unsuccessful attempts to curb the population of emus, a large flightless bird indigenous to Australia, employed soldiers armed with Lewis guns —leading the media to adopt the name "Emu War" when referring to the incident. While a number of the birds were killed, the emu population persisted and continued to cause crop destruction. Background Fallow caused by emus. Following World War I, large numbers of ex-soldiers from Australia, along with a number of British veterans, took up farming within Western Australia, often in marginal areas. With the onset of the Great Depression in 1929, these farmers were encouraged to increase their wheat crops, with the government promising—and failing to deliver—assistance in the form of subsidies .

Australasian robin

topic

The bird family Petroicidae includes roughly 45 species in about 15 genera. All are endemic to Australasia : New Guinea, Australia, New Zealand and numerous Pacific Islands as far east as Samoa . For want of an accurate common name, the family is often called the Australasian robins . Within the family the species are known not only as robins but as scrub-robins and flycatchers. They are, however, only distantly related to the Old World family Muscicapidae (to which other species with such names belong) and the monarch flycatchers (Monarchidae). Characteristics Most species have a compact build with a large, rounded head, a short, straight bill, and rounded wingtips. They occupy a wide range of wooded habitats, from subalpine to tropical rainforest, and mangrove swamps to semi-arid scrubland. All are primarily insectivorous, although a few supplement their diet with seeds. Hunting is mostly by perch and pounce, a favoured tactic being to cling sideways onto a treetrunk and scan the ground below without moving

Carpe diem

topic

A sundial inscribed carpe diem Carpe diem is a Latin aphorism , usually translated "seize the day", taken from book 1 of the Roman poet Horace 's work Odes (23 BC). Translation Carpe is the second-person singular present active imperative of carpō "pick or pluck" used by Horace to mean "enjoy, seize, use, make use of". Diem is the accusative case of the noun dies "day". A more literal translation of " carpe diem " would thus be "pluck the day [as it is ripe]"—that is, enjoy the moment. History Sources Text from Odes 1.11 : Tu ne quaesieris, scire nefas, quem mihi, quem tibi finem di dederint, Leuconoe, nec Babylonios temptaris numeros. ut melius, quidquid erit, pati. seu pluris hiemes seu tribuit Iuppiter ultimam, quae nunc oppositis debilitat pumicibus mare Tyrrhenum.
