Electric Vehicles are gettting into the market at a very high rate. With many of the automotive industries incentivizing the production of more EVs it will be no shock if they get more preffered to the GVs. EVs are simply vehicles which are powered by electric motor instead of internal combustion engines.

EVs are of three types. Battery electric vehicles are those that have batteries installed to power the vehicle. The batteries are rechargable. The batteries are the Lithium-ion batteries which are more reliable for holding charge. The second type of EVs are the Hybrid Electric Vehicles. This, has both the internal combustion system and an electric motor to power the vehicle. Talk about having options. The third type of EVs are the Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles which also have both electric motor and an internal combustion engine. The difference between the last two is that hybrid EVs only has the electric battery powering driving at lower speeds while in the plug-in hybrid the batteries are the primary power source for the car and the internal combustion supplements it when it is drained.

There are a number of advantages to EVs. These include zero tailpipe emmissions(pleasant to the environment), fast acceleration meaning high perfomance, they can be charged at home and reduced operating cost as one does not have to buy fuel. There are even more advantages. On the downside, EVs fires are take longer to take out and need a lot of water for the same, the initial purchasing cost is too much and the charging also takes longer. I could go on and on about the advantages and disadvatages but it all zeros in to your preferences. I for one like the look on EVs, the speed and the fact that there are pretty crazy models of EVs. So simply put, I want to own one of these. Very soon.


What activities do you lose yourself in?

Yeah. I like to do the listening and responding thing. You get to hear out new stuff and get to share what you know about the topic. It is like fine tuning you imagination. What is more fun is when both of you are liking the conversation. It is a way of keeping your brain at work.


I should go wash my brain or eyes, either one of them needs to reset. Why? I really love the Greek paintings, looking at them makes me want to paint something, reading about it on the other hand though…

Ancient Greece paintings are divided stylistically into four periods, Archaic, Classsical, Geometric and Hellinistic. The four periods were age related and in each age there was a common type of painting style. It is just like the modern days, trend, is it? In ancient Greece paintings were valued more than sculptures. At some point painting got to be regarded as a gentlemanly practise. The paintings in ancient Greece varied from vase paintings, interior landscape backgrounds and illusionistic paintings. The paintings were a big part of the Greece, I am sure every painter gets a thing or two from them. For some time panel paintings were the common and respected form of art and yet in the Hellinistic period the Greek wall paintings were common to point of becoming grave decorations.

The most famous of all ancient Greek painters was Apelles of Kos. This is according to Plany the elder. I bet you should check out some of his paintings. I definitely think the Greek paintings are inspirational to any art lover. What do you think?


What movies or TV series have you watched more than 5 times?

Repeating a movie or series is something hard for me. I cannot say I have never done it but 5 times! Man, I wish there was a movie that good. I have only repeated The Hitmans wife bodyguard twice just see that hilarious ending over again. Adapting the bodyguard, that was crazy. The facials on the Hitman and the Bodyguard too. Let me watch that again, might just reach that 5!


In two words, Demos Kratos. That is all I even have to write about the Greek government system. In ancient Greece, Athens was the first to ever exercise democracy and in the whole world. In modern day Greece, the government is lead by the Prime Minister with the President being the head of state.

Greece funtioned in a way that all citizens were involved in the government. A section of about 500 citizens were chosen every year to serve in the government.They were able to vote on new laws and control all the political processes of the nation. By citizens I mean free men and not slaves, children or women. Though democracy was first initiated in the Athens, this does not mean that Greece never experienced or had other forms of governments. They had differnt forms of governments which changed over differnt periods of time. Some of the other forms of government include, monarchy, oligarchy and tyranny. Monarchy involed the ruling individual to have inherited his role. In oligarchy, the nation was ruled by a select group of individuals. Tyranny in the ancient Greece was not as evil as the word nowadays is. The tyrant was majorly focused on his betterment. There are even a few of the tyrants who had good runs in the office and are remembered for this.

From the times of ancient Greece to modern day Greece I cannot help but admire their organisation in the things that happen in their nation. Their political system confirm this yet again!


Well, if you look enough you get to figure things out!

While looking at the Greek form of education I came across something. When the Roman empire took over Greece they used the educated Greeks as slaves for the affluent Romans. That explains how the Romans ended up deep into the Greek way of life. Let us look into it, maybe you too can take a thing or two from their form of education.

The Greek form of education was way personal. Education was a thing your parents decided if you they could afford giving to you or not. It was either public or private. The public education involved going to public schools and the private involved hiring tutors at home. At that time education was not a basic need. I like to think it was a thing you were priviledged to get. The education was primarily for the males and the non-slaves. The girls and ladies were not necessarily required to get educated. That did change some time later on as Plato came up with the Gyneceum which was for the education of girls.

The Greek form of education was divided into two. The physical and the intellectual. The intellectual involved phylosophy and trivium(logic, grammar and rhetoric). The physical education involved wrestling, running and javeline throwing among other skills. I bet you can tell which form of education most of the Greeks went or preffered for their children. You know about the Spartans? Yeah. You link the two. While at this I got curious, how did they evaluate the learners? Every student does have that fear and it still lingers in me though I have done my fair part of them. The Greek too did evaluate their students. This was done through public exams, phylosophical debates, oratory competitions and apprenticeship workshops. Like any other form of education, the Greek form of education was based on performance. There must be a line at one point or another.

You are probably wondering if they had something like secondary schools, high schools or something. Well, education was not so much invested in and so those who got higher education were few and basically the wealthy ones. People with the means I dare say. Some of the guys who had a mark on the Greeek education include Plato, Socrates, Isocrates and Aristotle. Writing about the Greek form of education turned out to be more fun than I had expected. I dare you to read something on it. I totally like their system of education in relation to their way of life and the ages in which they lived. Nice one people of Greece!


Zeus and Apollo are the names that come to my mind every single time I hear of the Greek gods. I do not know if this was a religion kind of set-up. What do you think? The Greek had so many gods I could take a whole year writing about each and every one of them. They were about 30,000. The reason is because they worshipped different gods during different occassions. They had gods for harvest, fertility, weather, war, childbirth and other different things. I would have had trouble with that for sure. Imagine all those gods, having to know them all!

As we all know, there always has to be someone standing out in a group. So was it with the Greek gods. There were 12 gods who were well known. They were the Olympians, Zeus, Apollo, Poseidon, Demeter, Hades, Hera, Artemis, Aphrodites, Arthena, Hephaestus, Hernes and Dionysus. These 12 had the role of ruling over the heavens with Zeus as their king. Zeus was the god for rain and thunder, many a sculpture and pictures would have him as the guy with a thunder bolt on his hand. Apollo was the god of poetry, healing and prophecy. Aphrodite was the goddess of beauty, love and sexuality. Hades was the god of the underworld, where the souls of the dead resided. The so called hell. Hernes was the messenger for the gods with swift feet. Demeter was the goddess for agriculture, fertility and harvest. These are but a few of the things the gods were in control of.

I would like to speak of the many stories about the various gods but it would be a lot. I prefer you check them out yourselves. What makes me like the Greek gods is the way they were depicted to have human-like qualities such as emotions and even physicality. The differentiating factor was that they were immortal and had power over natural events and human affairs. Reading about the Greek gods made me think of how not far from the gods we were. The fact that they also had faults and could manifest themselves was awesome. I think that is what made them stand out. What made the Greeks have great belief in them. If asked, I think the Greek gods were more close to their people. The Greek gods are well justified, I have nothing against them.
