Located at the corner of Queen's Park and Bloor, the Lillian Massey Building was built between 1908 and 1912 for the University of Toronto's Household Science program. Besides having Club Monaco as a tenant on the ground floor, the building now shares space with the University of Toronto's Medieval Studies department. What appears to be rather well located apartments at the rear of the building are actually U of T fund raising offices. I was slightly disappointed to discover this. I was hoping someone had found a really unique place to live. On a more interesting note, there's still a swimming pool from the early 1900's in the building that remains preserved under a false floor. ---------------------------------------- #toronto #uoft #clubmonaco #torontolife #torontophoto #ViewsOfToronto #imagesoftoronto #viewsfromthe6 #viewsoftoronto #igerstoronto #lovetoronto #MyToronto #yourtoronto #torontophoto #hypetoronto #exploretoronto #igtoronto #createcommune #createexploretakeover #torontophotography #history #torontoblogger #citylimitless #streetsoftoronto #torontonia #cityviews #blogto #oldhomelove #swimmingpool

鈥淚t is so important which thoughts a person accepts, for thoughts are energy. If a person seeks what is good, then God will help him. If he wants what is bad, then Satan will help him.鈥 Man is not submissively subjected to whatever comes into his mind. He himself can decide which thoughts he will tolerate and which not. But he must make this choice carefully, not superficially. There is an energy behind every thought; a positive thought is constructive, a negative one, destructive. A joyful message inspires, a sad one discourages! Thoughts are spiritual energies. They embody a power; a power which humanity today is barely aware of. A thought born of love can inspire a person to lay down his life for another. A thought spawned from hatred can drive him to kill another. 鈥淏eware of every evil thought!鈥 Firstly, the will for health must be present Using a simple example, When building a house, the first impetus is the wish to build it. The thought becomes more concrete, until an exact plan is drawn up. Up until this point, the building exists only in the future owner鈥檚 imagination. The actual construction is the final step on a path of countless decisions and preparations... It is exactly the same with healing. First the wish for health has to be there. Then come the mental detachment from the illness and the belief in recovery. The final stage is the physical healing of the body. But this is not a human act. It is an act of grace from God. Man cannot earn it, but he may attain it... Satan wants to mislead a person with negative thoughts, no matter how small, how unimportant. He wants to pull the person off the divine path. He wants him to be anxious, angry, in doubt about what is good, and he wants him to violate God's laws. To accomplish this, he fools him into believing that man is a plaything at the mercy of bad thoughts and feelings. But this is a lie...Satanism is based on the manipulation of energy and consciousness through Mind Control, deception, Possession & Negative Rituals promoted on the earth through the Archontic Deception enforcing anti-life behaviors as a value system within humanity.

History of Ducktown, a Superfund site in the Copper Basin Mining District including the Ocoee River affected by mining activities that took place from the late 1800s until the 1980s. EPA did not list the site on the National Priorities List (NPL) but considers it an NPL-caliber site and is addressing it through the Superfund Alternative Approach. What are Superfunds? Superfund: A Superfund site is any land in the United States that has been contaminated by hazardous waste and identified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a candidate for cleanup because it poses a risk to human health and/or the environment. #epa #toxic #killedeverything #trees #fish #cancer #devestated #mining #town #restored #20years #copper #gold #history #lesson #tennessee

The #Arch of #Constantine (Italian: #Arco_di_Costantino) is a triumphal arch in #Rome, situated between the #Colosseum and the #Palatine_Hill. It was erected by the Roman Senate to commemorate Constantine I's victory over #Maxentius at the #Battle_of_Milvian Bridge in 312. Dedicated in 315, it is the largest Roman triumphal arch. The arch spans the Via triumphalis, the way taken by the emperors when they entered the city in triumph.Though dedicated to Constantine, much of the decorative material incorporated earlier work from the time of the emperors #Trajan (98鈥117), #Hadrian (117鈥138) and #Marcus_Aurelius (161鈥180), and is thus a collage.The arch is 21 m high, 25.9 m wide and 7.4 m deep. It has three archways, the central one being 11.5 m high and 6.5 m wide and the lateral archways 7.4 m by 3.4 m each. At back ground it is the colesseum of course. #traveling #aroundtheworld #italy #history #artwork #architecture

Marvdasht is a vast plain in north of Shiraz and due to its strategic location and mild tempreture was a great place for ancient people to settle down. Its historical background dates back to the 5th millennium BC. One of the remarkable monuments of this plain is Persepolis which has been built by Achaemenid emperors around 2500 years ago. If you are interested in history and ancient areas this plain is a great place to explore and learn about ancient Persia.

Throwback: Lake Titicaca . The Spanish conquistadores weren't the first white men to come to America. Apparently the Vikings were first to discover the continent. This picture shows a typical boat which can be found at Lake Titicaca. These boats are seen as evidence for the Viking's arrival since they look quite similar to their boats. . #travel #backpacking #holiday #explore #bolivia #isladelsol #lake #lagotiticaca #titicaca #boat #vikings #conquista #clouds #culture #history #southamerica #latinamerica #throwback

Grattacchecaro: il mitico venditore di grattachecche! 馃構馃崏馃崒馃崜馃馃嵐 La grattachecca (per i non romani) 猫 una stupenda e dissetante bibita a granita composta di ghiaccio grattato (e non tritato) e sciroppi di vario genere , che ha rinfrescato generazioni di romani e turisti. Ogni zona di Roma ne aveva almeno una e Trastevere e Testaccio a decine. Ora so solo che il grattecheccaro lo posso trovare (quello storico) a ponte Cestio, che fa la grattachecca secondo i canoni previsti. La leggenda narra che l'inventrice della grattachecca fu una certa Francesca, moglie di un falegname che, colonna di ghiaccio alla mano, us貌 la pialla del marito per "grattare' il ghiaccio e aggiungerci dello sciroppo. Grattachecca non 猫 altro che l'esortazione, in romanesco, a grattare il ghiaccio da parte della sora Francesca, Checca, per l'appunto. "Quanno che co'n par de lire, seo faceva troppo callo, ce piavamo 'n pezzo de cocco e 'na grattachecca... e m貌 prova in giro a raccontallo che pe' noi era la mecca!". - Roberto T. - #grattachecca #history #legend #granita #sciroppo #ghiaccio #goodbyesummer #drink #fresh #addiction #ice #instagram #photo #ig_italia #visitrome #like4like #relax #healthy #explorer #travel #discover #likerome #pontecestio #mestiere #soramirella #lungotevere #romanesco #rome #mycity_life #italy鉂わ笍
