Such a devastating loss. Earlier today, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, perhaps the most famous monument of Medieval European architecture, suffered a massively destructive fire that engulfed much of the building and destroyed large sections of the structure, including the complete obliterations of the central spire. It is a sad day for France and for the world. President Macron has said the worst has been avoided, as the two main towers were mostly left unharmed, and he has vowed that they will rebuild Notre Dame. At moments like these, we remember that we are not at the end of history, with everything set in its final place, but rather, we are living in the midst of history ongoing, and nothing in this world lasts forever. Of the original Seven Wonders of the World, only one, the Giza Pyramids, remains standing. Notre Dame has suffered damage before, and has been restored. We can only hope that the building can be salvaged in part and perhaps one day be returned to something close to its former glory. #NotreDame

The #Amazing 5th period #APWorld class doing some #ModelUnitedNations simulation of the #UNSCOP to try to solve the issue of what to do with the British Mandate of Palestine. As one might imagine, there was quite a lively discourse. After four days of debate, negotiation, and compromise, the committee voted on and passed one of the two proposed resolutions. Unfortunately, war broke out anyway, highlighting the delicate nature of international diplomacy that is often accompanied by a sense of futility. Nice try, guys. #Israel #Palestine #Zionism #UnitedNations #Partition #1947 #1948 #1967 #Nakba #IsraeliIndependence #SixDayWar #BalfourDeclaration #QuestionOfPalestine #Salaam #Shalom #Peace
Most people don’t know very much about Central Asia. It very often gets sort of skipped over. But historically, Central Asia was a major crossroads of civilization. Take a look at this actually pretty legit map I found from the January 2017 Regents exam. It does a very nice job of showing the physics geography of the region clearly and simply. #SilkRoad #IndoEuropeans #Turkistan #Turkic #EasternIranian #Pamir #Tocharian #TarimBasin #TaklamakanDesert #Steppe #EurasianSteppe #CentralAsia #AryanMigration #Huns #WhiteHuns #Kushans #Bukhara #Samarkhand #AltaiMountains #RIPAralSea #AralSea
Do you think this describes me? 🤔💭
Fatima al Fihriya: Founder of the World’s First University . . It’s all thanks to Fatima al-Fihri that universities around the world exist. After founding the world’s first known university, the University of al-Qarawiyyin, a centre of higher education, it ultimately paved the way for modern universities around the globe. . What did she do? . Fatima al-Fihri was a Muslim woman from Tunisia who founded the first known university more than 1,000 years ago: the University of al-Qarawiyyin in Fez, Morocco. Guinness World Records acknowledges it as the oldest existing and continually operating educational institution in the world. . Much of the information about al-Fihri’s early life is lost to time, but we do know that she was born into a wealthy merchant family who prized education – even for women. Fatima and her sister, Mariam, were well schooled and devoutly religious. In the early 9th century, the al-Fihri family, along with many other Arabic people, left Tunisia and emigrated to Fez – considered a bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis by the standards of the time. When her father died, Fatima inherited his fortune. The sisters then decided to invest the money in something that would benefit their local community. . In 859 CE, al-Fihri decided that a place of higher learning was much needed in the city and founded the al-Qarawiyyin Mosque and University, naming it after her hometown. She oversaw construction of the building – 30 metres long with a courtyard, prayer hall, library and schoolrooms. . In the beginning, the educational part of al-Qarawiyyin offered courses in religious instruction and the Qur’an, but its curriculum gradually expanded into Arabic grammar, mathematics, music, medicine and astronomy, and then began conferring degrees on its graduates. The university swiftly became a famous spiritual and educational centre, visited by scholars and intellectuals from all over the world. Al-Fihri attended lectures there until her later years. . Why was she a trailblazer? .
