IOTD …. “🇵🇷 Images of the Day, Special Edition …. Castillo San Felipe del Morro 🇵🇷 …. “!!


RedLineBLying on the northeastern-most point of the islet of Old San Juan, Castillo San Felipe del Morro is named in honor of King Philip II of Spain. The fortification, also referred to as el Morro or ‘the promontory,’ was designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the Spanish colonial port city of San Juan from seaborne enemies.

In 1983, the citadel was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in conjunction with the San Juan National Historic Site.

~~GARITA DEL DIABLO~~

The sentry boxes or “garitas” were used by the Spanish soldiers or guards to protect the city walls night and day. Some of these were located quite near to others but others were more distant and solitary.

At night the guards would occasionally shout a call to other guards in their boxes so as to check on their whereabouts and to keep from falling asleep.

STEPHEN HAWKING …. “💫✨💫 Fly High, Sir …. The Universe Awaits You 💫✨💫 …. “!!


HQuiet

~~March 14, 2018~~ 

Stephen William Hawking, CH CBE FRS FRSA, (8 January 1942 – 14 March 2018), was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation.

Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.

He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.

The physicist, who died Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at age 76, wasn’t expected to see his 25th birthday, after being diagnosed with the incurable neurodegenerative condition ALS at age 21.

Though Hawking beat the odds for more than five decades, the scientist told the Guardian in 2011 that death was never far from his mind.

~Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis~

ALS is a group of rare neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement. Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time.

Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt, or reverse, the progression of the disease.

Tesla Roadster …. “🚗 Rode SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket Into Space 🚗 …. Yes, it did …. “!!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE TESLA?

Experts predict smooth sailing – and, ultimately, salvage

The Tesla Roadster that rode SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket into space Tuesday afternoon, February 6, seems poised to overshoot its mark as company CEO Elon Musk tweeted.

Experts nonetheless predicted smooth sailing for the cherry red convertible and the spacesuit-wearing mannequin, Starman, positioned behind the wheel. Even in the asteroid belt, it seems the car is unlikely to encounter anything beyond ultraviolet radiation, cosmic rays and other highly charged particles, and the occasional micrometeroid.

With no oxygen and no water, there’s no chance that the Roadster will rust. But given the ongoing exposure to UV light, the car’s “paint will start to fade over time just as any car does here in Phoenix in the desert,” said Dr. Jim Bell, a planetary scientist at Arizona State University and the president of the Planetary Society.

In a press conference held after the launch, Musk said he expected the car to be “out there in space for maybe millions or billions of years.” But Bell isn’t so sure. He said that at some point – perhaps 50 to 100 years from now – it will be “a juicy target for salvage,” and someone will mount a new space mission to recapture the Roadster and bring it back to Earth.

Rincón Beach Resort …. “🇵🇷 Our Favorite Spot in the World 🇵🇷 …. Before and After Hurricane María …. “!!


A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS

The red * marks the spot where our favorite spot on the world is located.

~RINCON BEACH RESORT~

Whenever we travel to Puerto Rico to visit family and friends and to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, we land in Aguadilla. We drive to Rincón and check in.

The resort is our base. We drive from the base to surrounding towns to see friends and family.

As a matter of fact, we were due for our next trip before Hurricane María nearly flattened Puerto Rico 118 days ago.

Prior to that, Hurricane Irma also grazed the island.

BEST INLET EVER

AERIAL VIEWS OF THE RESORT

BEAUTIFUL SHORELINE AND SANDY BEACH

AWESOME, PERFECT RELAXING ATMOSPHERE

HURRICANE MARIA PATH OVER PUERTO RICO

*(the red * marks the spot where the resort is located)*

NOTICE HOW BIG MARIA WAS 

It engulfed and swallowed Puerto Rico.

According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds extended up to 30 miles from Hurricane María’s center, while tropical storm-force winds extend outward for up to 125 miles.

Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is 100 miles long X 35 miles wide.

There was no place to hide!

NOTICE THE STEP DOWN WHERE THE BEACH USED TO BE

*(compare to the ‘before’ pictures)*

It’s all gone. My heart is hurting.

The friend who sent me the pictures told me that the beach lost its shore, the trees and the palm trees are gone as you can see.

The beach itself is deeper and not safe for swimming.

THE SOFT SAND IS GONE, REPLACED BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS

THE SOFT BEACH IS GONE

CANNOT WALK TO THE POINT ANYMORE

INCREDIBLE BEACH EROSION
