Aztec pyramids, pyramid-shaped structures, are an important part of ancient architecture of the Aztec Civilization. These structures were usually step pyramids with temples on top – more akin to the ziggurats of Mesopotamia than to the pyramids of Ancient Egypt. The Mesoamerican region’s largest pyramid by volume – indeed, the largest in the world by volume – is the Great Pyramid of Cholula, in the Mexican state of Puebla. These Aztec pyramids were mainly built for religious purposes. As mentioned before, the Aztecs were a religious group of people. These pyramids were therefore used to worship their Gods as well as to offer a sacrifice. The temple area on the top of the pyramid often had flat spaces, which played the role of a sacrificial block.

Solar energy has the potential to dramatically change the way the world gets its power. Enough solar energy falls on a 100-square-mile area of the southwestern United States to power the entire nation. It is still important, however, to understand the environmental impacts associated with producing power from renewable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower.
While solar is among the world’s cleanest forms of energy, plans to develop utility scale solar farms have raised concerns about potential environmental impacts.
One person’s beauty is another person’s eyesore. For some, solar panels evoke positive feelings, even when set in a natural landscape
Creating energy is a water intensive process. In the U.S., electricity production accounts for more than 40 percent of all daily freshwater withdrawals

“So, does Sea Moss really work? there’s no debating the drink’s strong nutritional value. Sea Moss has a rich mix of vitamins and minerals, most notably potassium, calcium and magnesium, that make it a favored elixir for treating everything from digestive disorders and ulcers, to depression, anxiety and even ADD. More popularly, though, Sea Moss is known to add a little extra potency to the main male ingredient required for baby-making. Guys, if you’re having a little trouble conceiving, a healthy helping of Sea Moss will ensure that your boys will swim!” – Taste of the Caribbean
Phase 1: Preparing Sea Moss Gel
Soak the dried Sea Moss in cold water for 15 minutes. Wash algae thoroughly, but do not soak it overnight, as the algae will lose much of its nutritional value and potency. Next, fill a pot with two quarts of fresh water. Add the clean Sea Moss and two cinnamon sticks. Bring pot to boil. Once boiling, cover and simmer on low for 20-25 minutes. The algae will soften and the water will thicken. Remove from heat and discard cinnamon sticks. Allow the solution to cool and place it in the refrigerator overnight, allowing it to gel.
Phase 2: Preparing Sea Moss Drink
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix on low speed until pieces of algae are finely chopped. That’s it!
Serve chilled, or over ice. Also, for an additional flavor boost, add a shot of rum.
According to Andrew, this recipe serves two… though there’s no telling how many it will produce!

Eyes open or eyes closed? it seems to me that certain asanas (pose) I find it easier to remain balanced while my eyes are open and when I close them mid asana I am wobbling all over the place. So it made me explore the reasoning behind it. I’ve learned that I am depending on sight for balance when my eyes are open. When I am depending on feel for balance my eyes are closed. Just something I realized.
