The following sets of poetry describes a prominent Greek figure in popular mythology; do you think you can figure out who is being described without being stumped? Answers are at the very bottom of the page if you wish to check. Good luck!


1. The Man And His World

His hands are calloused, rough, rugged

such as the terrain of the Himalayas

but instead of climbing mountains

he was holding up the sky.

A friend-turned-foe once pleaded

“Help me, allow me to rest.”

So he took the burden

fooled for eternity.

Meanwhile, the world grew bigger;

thousands of years culminated into man-made destruction,

war and inner turmoil,

infestation of mortals,

until the world was too big.

His hands crumbled,

his shoulders sagged,

his head bowed,

until his world consumed him.

2. The Short-Tempered God

His ego the size of his throne in Olympia,

he commands the power of the sky.

He steals the hearts of numerous mortal woman,

angering his immortal wife who had cursed one too many.

His two brethren rule the dead and the sea

forever in conflict the trinity stays.

He hurls his bolt at those who displease him,

his weapon of choice made by faithful cyclops.

Commander of wind spirits and cloud nymphs

his domain remains the jewel of civilization.

3. Huntress

A maiden for eternity,

she refuses the company of men except that of Orion

whom her fiery brother had killed out of spite.

Her father the king and her mother an affair,

Hera subjects her to scorn.

Her Hunters become her sisters until the end of time

engaged in the pursuit of justice,

chasing evil straight into Tartarus.

Releasing arrow after arrow,

her target remains her focus and the center of her world;

she never misses.

Silver like the moonlight,

she casts a glow that few are lucky to see.

4. Embracer Of Darkness

He craves death, destruction, danger;

he had stolen his wife from the mortal world

now she is forced to stay in his realm

for she had eaten the cursed seeds.

His second companion blessed with three heads,

the beast guards the entry to his unholy domain.

The helm of darkness, his prized possession,

wielded by Perseus in his battle against Medusa.

His palace resides next to the River Styx

where a promise broken warrants a fate worse than death.

Life after death is his choice;

he will decide: Fields of Asphodel or Elysium.

Lord help the soul that attempts to escape his clutches.

Springs: Small Tools That Change Our Lives

Springs: Small Tools That Change Our Lives

A spring is actually the simple and small appliance made of crimped wire. It has many different functions and can be used in various industrial and everyday-life spheres. We don’t even notice it in our daily routine. Springs are here when we sleep on the mattress, open the garage door, drive the car and look at the wrist watch. So, how have they appeared in our lives?

This tale starts from the invention of the first mechanical pocket watches. It was the game-changing tool which appeared approximately in 1510 thanks to the German engineer. He introduced the first model of the pocket watches and added an innovative detail to them – clock spring. This small tool helped the whole mechanism work in a right way. Through the years watchmakers tried to improve the first project, but the spring remained in the construction of the clocks. Engineers are always in search for the best material to produce the powerful springs and to make their lifecycle last longer. The typical clock springs are made of stainless steel on the base of metal and ?hrome. This material is perfect for a clock mechanism, because the spring never gets rusty. There are many different names for the simple clock spring, it can be although called coil spring, coil assembly or contact reel.

Besides the clock spring, there are also various types of this tool: power springs, micro springs, conical springs. As it was mentioned before, you can find them in many fields of your daily life.

For example, springs are used in modern cars` repair. The clock spring are placed between the steering wheel and the column in every car. Either way, it helps to support the electrical contact in electrical system of the vehicle. Also, coil springs help to save lives in accidents – they are considered to be an important part of a safety bag mechanism. 

Talking about flat springs, usually it has a flat spiral plate shape. This is achieved by placing the spring into the cylinder, where it gets in a right shape. Flat spring has one basic function – it reduces the coil contact during the operation. These tools are mainly used in computers, office and medical equipment.

In its turn, micro springs are used mainly in healthcare industry, they are parts of the medical hardware and small devices such as hearing kit. Due to the small size and the shape, the manufacture of micro springs requires patience and accuracy. Just imagine that the typical size of the wire for micro spring is 0.1 mm. The engineer has to be really precise in order not to waste the material during the process. 

Today there are many manufacturers, who produce different kinds of springs. You can discuss every option of the material and the appropriate life cycle to the purpose of the spring you need.
