While zinc is an effective anode material, and small amounts of zinc are essential for human health, in higher concentrations the element has been found to be highly toxic to plants, invertebrates and fish. Worst still, zinc anodes typically include some amount of cadmium, which has been associated with serious illnesses including kidney disease, atherosclerosis, hypertension and cardiovascular diseases. Further, there is growing concern that exposure to cadmium may be linked to immune system deficiencies, with recent studies revealing a significant correlation between cadmium exposure and the occurrence of disease in human populations.
Such findings have inevitably raised concerns about the continued use of zinc anodes in marine environments. In the United States, bans on the use of zinc anodes have been proposed in California and Maryland after studies identified high levels of the element in local environments located near large marinas." || www.martyranodes.com

In my latest podcast episode, I discuss summertime and how it can be pretty stressful as moms. It’s so common for moms to think deep down that motherhood equals martyhood. Ya, that never works out for us. It causes us to feel resentful and either check out or lose our sh!t with the people we love the most. In this episode (link in bio 👆) I teach you my favorite tool so you have a stress free summer. ☀️🍉🍦
~ The martyr of Solway, Margaret Wilson ~
In 1685, a woman of 63 and another of 18 were staked to the tidal channel of Bladnoch River near Wigtown and drowned by the rising waters. They were Covenanters.
The Covenanter movement to maintain the reforms of the Scottish Reformation came to the fore with signing of the National Covenant of 1638 in opposition to royal control of the church, promoting Presbyterianism as a form of church government instead of an Episcopal polity governed by bishops appointed by the Crown. The dispute led to the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and the overthrow of the monarchy. With the Restoration of the monarchy in 1660 the Covenants were declared treasonable and Episcopacy was restored. Particularly in the south-west of Scotland, ministers refused to submit.
Many Scots remained obdurate, including children. The 18-year-old Margaret Wilson was arrested with her 13-year-old sister, though their father managed to scrape together a bond payment to save the younger girl.
And fiendish penalties were deployed to force their capitulation or cow their sympathizers. In this case, a recent law prescribed public drowning for Covenanter women. The older woman was tied further out, where she would drown first, in hopes of terrifying the teenager into submission. The young Margaret held firm.

~ The tragic death of Dirce ~
Dirce was the wife of Lycus in Greek mythology, and aunt to Antiope.
After Zeus impregnated Antiope, Antiope fled in shame to King Epopeus of Sicyon, but was brought back by Lycus through force, giving birth to the twins Amphion and Zethus on the way. Lycus gave Antiope to Dirce. Dirce hated Antiope and treated her cruelly, until Antiope escaped.
Antiope flees back to the cave where she gave birth to Amphion and Zethus; they are now living there as young men. They disbelieve her claim to be their mother and refuse her pleas for sanctuary, but when Dirce comes to find Antiope and orders her to be killed, the twins are convinced by the shepherd who raised them that Antiope is their mother. They kill Dirce by tying her to the horns of a bull.
Dirce was devoted to the god Dionysus. He caused a spring to flow where she died, at Thebes, and it was a local tradition for the outgoing Theban hipparch to swear in his successor at her tomb. In Statius' Thebaid, the spring is a symbol of Thebes, and its name is often used metonymically to refer to the city itself.
This scene was recreated in spectacles in the Roman arena. This is how Christian women were martyred.

👤ادواردو (مهدی) آنيلي در نیویورک متولد شد. وی تنها پسر و وارث مولتی میلیاردر مشهور ایتالیایی سناتور جووآنی آنیلی بود و مادرش، مارلا کاراچیلو، یک پرنسس یهودی بود. ادواردو پس از اتمام تحصیلاتش در کالج آتلانتیک، برای ادامه تحصیلاتش در زمینه ادبیات مدرن و فلسفه شرق به دانشگاه پرینستون رفت. وی پس از اتمام تحصیلات دانشگاهی، برای مطالعه عرفان و مذاهب شرقی به کشورهای هند و ایران سفر کرد و در جریان سفرش به کشورمان با آیت الله خمینی دیدار کرد و به اسلام و تشیع گروید.
وی میگوید: در نیویورک که بودم یک روز در کتابخانه قدم میزدم و کتابها را نگاه میکردم چشمم افتاد به قرآن. کنجکاو شدم که ببینم در قرآن چه چیزی آمده است. آن را برداشتم وشروع کردم به ورق زدن و آیاتش ر ا به انگلیسی خواندم، احساس کردم که این کلمات، کلمات نورانی است و نمیتواند گفته بشر باشد. خیلی تحت تأثیر قرار گرفتم، آن را امانت گرفتم و بیشتر مطالعه کردم و احساس کردم که آن را میفهمم و قبول دارم.

**Dhan Guru Arjan Dev Sahib Ji's Shaheedi Saka - PART 10** Quite some time after Guru Arjan Dev Sahib Ji’s shaheedi (martyrdom), when Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji were older and had mobilised a Sikh army as per instructions of Their father, They went to Lahore along with 500 armed Gursikhs.
Guru Sahib initially rested in a part of Lahore called Mujanga where they stayed for one night and many sangata (congregation) arrived to receive Their darshan (be in Their presence). Wazir Khan came to meet Guru Sahib here and with him brought many gifts. “Guru Ji, the emperor Jahangeer has sent me to make sure Your every need is met and I am at Your service”. Jahangeer was no true friend of the Guru’s house but he wanted to maintain his own safety and also thought this was a good way to keep an eye on what Guru Ji were up to.
At Mujanga, Guru Sahib asked Their Sikhs to prepare a very large quantity of degh (blessed food made from flour, butter, sugar and water) and proclaimed, “today we are going to do darshan of Guru Jis asthaans (blessed historical places)”. This particular parsang (chapter) within Gurpartap Suraj Granth provides us with good lessons on how Sikhs should receive darshan of our pavittar asthaans and indeed with which bhaavnava (mind-set and emotions) we should set off from our homes to receive darshan of, whether it be these historical asthaans or even when we go to a Gurdwara Sahib to receive darshan of Dhan Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj.
Guru Ji departed from Mujanga and entered Lahore on foot with Their 500 strong army and numerous sangata joined Them on route.
With Their heart filled with love, Guru Ji first went to Chuna Mundee, the asthaan (blessed place) where Their grandfather, Dhan Guru Ramdas Ji, came into this world. Receiving darshan of this location Guru Ji did namaskaar (bowed down). Many will say our head should bow to no one other than Guru Granth Sahib Ji Maharaj but when it comes to our Guru Sahibs pavittar asthaans: **Jithai Jai Bahai mera satguru so than suhava raam raje**
Wherever my True Guru goes and sits, that place is beautiful, O Lord King. **gursikhi so thaan bhaalia lai dhoor much lava** Continued..👇🏽
The martyrdom of Dutch protestant, George Scherter. Heading towards his execution he exclaimed that he was a true Christian and will give them a manifest sign upon his death. Directly after his beheading, George's body rotated from his belly to his back resulting in the crossing of his legs. The crowd were astonished. The magistrates who recommended burning the body after the execution, were also taken aback by this sign and had George buried with other "true Christians".
