#Hydronomastics is the study of #hydronyms, the proper names of bodies of water.

It's a branch of #toponomastics, the study of #toponyms (the proper names of places), which in turn is a branch of #onomastics, the study of #orthonyms (proper names).

#Hydronym and #hydronomastics both derive from Ancient #Greek ὕδωρ / húdōr (water) + ὄνομα / ónoma (name). The Greek island of Skiatho...
#Hydronyms tend to outlast other #toponyms, even when new #languages and cultures displace earlier ones.

#England, #EastAnglia, #Essex, and #Sussex are named for the #Angles and #Saxons; but #Trent, #Ouse, #Thames, #Severn, and #Avon are older #Celtic and #RomanoBritish names. A map showing the main rive...

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

🔴🔴🔴Lorsque @BegonThomas commettait son erreur concernant Idéale, une Charolaise devenue Limousine dans son tweet, @farmers3b a lancé une série fabuleuse #ThomasCeciEstUne 👉🏻 pour nous offrir un tableau de races bovines incroyable.
Lançons #EmmanuelleCeciEstUne ⬇️
@emma_ducros je vous remercie pour votre anecdote ! @jegat5 m’a proposé alors le lancement d’une série sur les poules. J’attendais une occasion de le faire : le « kairos » s’est présenté. La poule-mouette n’aura qu’à bien se tenir.
Pour m’accompagner dans cette démarche, je vais utiliser entre autres un livre offert par le @ServiceInfoCNPO au #SIA 2020, qui propose une diversité de races de poules. Aussi, chaque jour (je ne sais pas si je serai aussi assidue que @farmers3b !) vous aurez une présentation 🐓 Image

Today is #VEDay when we remember the end of the war in Europe. Eric Ravilious never survived to see that Peace, & for his wife Tirzah, it left her a widow. War always means Lost Lives, unfulfilled paths, but Ravilious left behind such a legacy, so let’s see some of it from #WW2
At the beginning of #WW2 Eric Ravilious joined the Royal Observer Corps whose job it was to spot for enemy planes & had a vital role in the Battle of Britain. He painted this Observer’s Post in 1939. Original in @higginsbedford collection.
Ravilious was then given an Honorary Commission in the Royal Marines and was appointed an Official War Artist. In 1940/41 he did a lot of work in #Kent & #Sussex. This was entitled Bombing the Channel Ports (1941) and shows a Sound Mirror in #Kent. Original in @I_W_M collection.

Here goes our first thread. Singing goes a long way towards managing our own wellbeing. We breath together, we share words and emotions during in each song. Above all we laugh together. I recommend it. #seashanty #folksong #MentalHealthMatters
We have supported each other through some dark times. When we get together to sing, however we are feeling, the songs demand we take a break from our own heads and move into a shared space. A place where we are not alone.
If you are feeling lost or lonely please consider joining a choir, a shanty group or something that involves shared performances. I know that may be a scary prospect but trust me it could be a lifesaver. #ollysfuture #SuicideAwareness #MentalHealthMatters
