Temple of Artemis

The Temple of Artemis also known less precisely as Temple of Diana was a temple dedicated to Artemis completed in its most famous phase, approximately 550 BC at Ephesus (in present-day Turkey) under the Achaemenid dynasty of the Persian Empire. Nothing remains of the temple, which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The Temple of Artemis was not the first on its site, where proof of a sanctuary dates as early as the Bronze Age.

The temple was a 120-year project in progress by Croesus of Lydia. It was described by Antipater of Sidon, who compiles a list of the Seven Wonders:

I have set eyes on the wall of lofty Babylon on which is a road for chariots, and the statue of Zeus by the Alpheus, and the hanging gardens, and the colossus of the Sun, and the huge labour of the high pyramids, and the vast tomb of Mausolus; but when I saw the house of Artemis that mounted to the clouds, those other marvels lost their brilliancy, and I said, "Lo, apart from Olympus, the Sun never look on aught (anything) so grand".


Rail transport is the transport of passengers and supplies by means of wheeled vehicles mainly intended to run down railways.

A railway/railroad track includes of two parallel iron rails, usually anchored vertical to beams, termed sleepers or ties, concrete, or steel to keep a steady space apart, or gauge. The rails and perpendicular beams are normally then placed on a base made of concrete or condensed earth and gravel in a bed of weight to stop the track from buckling as the ground settles over time below and under the weight of the vehicles passing above. The vehicles traveling on the rails are placed in a train; a string of individual powered or empowered vehicles joined together, displaying markers.

Discounted cash flow

In finance, the discounted cash flow (or DCF) approach describes a method to value a project, company, or financial asset by means of the concepts of the time value of money. All future cash flows are predictable and discounted to give them a present value. The discount rate used is normally the appropriate cost of capital, and incorporates judgments of the uncertainty (riskiness) of the future cash flows.

Discounted cash flow analysis is broadly used in investment finance, real estate development, and corporate financial management.

Fitness boot camp

A fitness boot camp is a kind of physical training program conduct by gyms, personal trainers, and former military personnel. These programs have been increasing in popularity for more than a few years. The training frequently combines running, interval training, and many other exercise using weights and/or body weight to lose body fat, boost to cardiovascular efficiency, increase strength, and help people get into a practice of regular exercise. Many programs offer nourishment advice as well. Called "boot camp" because it trains groups of people, typically outdoors, and may or may not be similar to military basic training.
