Donald Trump and What a Grooming Routine Can Say About a Politician and the News Cycle

Donald Trump has become the de facto most searched for personality on Earth. As leader of the free world he enjoys unlike many of his predecessors the most volumous content written about him. Keep in mind this is not just the press – but also the public content of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook, not to mention the private sites that are out there. But what makes this man so fascinating and what can he – in the end – tell us about ourselves and our obsession with celebrity?

When Donald Trump first came on the scene he was known as a property developer – just like his father – and this is how he came across to New Yorkers. As many will remember Donald Trump was loved by many – even though he was rich he represented the American dream – ironic though – considering that he came from wealth himself and was not an upstart.

One thing that put him in the limelight is doing many interviews – as well as various cameos in movies – and he soon became a household name. However what really put him over the edge of just another household entrepreneur name is his show ‘The Apprentice’ which was shown on NBC. Keep in mind that this was no joke – this show was literally the most watched show on NBC and their biggest cash cow. It ran for many seasons and was wildly successful – it echoed the remnants of ‘Greed is Good’ – Godon Gecko’s saying – and with it came a lot of fans of Donald Trump – who also wanted their slice of the pie.

But how could that be done?

Soon Donald Trump was opening Trump University and other things – such as writing books – to show others exactly what it takes to win the art of the deal. Yes – that business book – which is arguably the greatest selling business book of all time – was written by Donald Trump in his classic style.

However as Donald Trump entered elections it soon became something else – whereas before Donald Trump was not scrutinised much – and just known as a property developer who had made a lot of money building various properties around New York and Las Vegas – soon he was known as someone who could make a real big difference to people’s lives.

And then you see the news articles about Donald Trump’s hair – his statement on his hands – and how big – or how small they are. These are all things that had never been discussed about Donald Trump before – and certainly not in the way that it was done back in the days. Simply put the scrutiny had advanced – and Donald Trump was not prepared for it. In many ways you could make the argument that he was naive.

There are many arguments about whether Donald Trump’s impeachment – or his behaviour in the White House can be considered criminal – only a criminal lawyer can comment on these matters – and for that info you can learn more here.

And so we come to this period of history as we wonder – how much of politician’s past should we really focus on?

History of Sundials – Volume 1

THE sundial is one of the human race’s earliest achievements in marking the passage of time. But sundials provided people with much more than this practical goal – their replication of the heavens provided aesthetic and religious satisfaction. This is often hard to comprehend nowadays, when sundials have often become little more than garden ornaments and are not usually very accurate (although it is relatively easy to construct an accurate sundial).

The Egyptians used sundials as early as 1500 BC. A sundial, the dial of Ahaz, is mentioned in the Old Testament (Isaiah 38: 8) and would have existed around approximately 730 B.C.The ancient Babylonians, the Chaldeans, were renowned as astronomers. Their treatises on sundials were the definitive expertise on sundials for over a millenium, until the Christian era.

The indicator on the sundial is called a gnomon, a Greek word meaning pointer.

The Greeks and Romans used sundials extensively. In fact, the indicator on the sundial that casts the shadow is still called by the Greek word “gnomon” which means pointer. The use of towers and obelisks as gnomons to cast shadows indicating the hours, was very evident in ancient Greece and Rome. Sundials were found in houses, tombs, temples, baths and other public places. Not everyone was happy about this as the following quote shows:

The gods confound the man who first found out
How to distinguish hours – confound him, too,
Who in this place set up a sundial
To cut and hack my days so wretchedly
Into small pieces! When I was a boy.
My belly was my sundial – one more sure,
Truer, and more exact than any of them.
This dial told me when ’twas proper time
To go to dinner, when I had ought to eat;
But nowadays, why even when I have,
I can’t fall to unless the sun gives me leave.
The town’s so full of these confounded dials,
The greatest part of its inhabitants,
Shrunk up with hunger, creep along the streets.

attributed to Plautus
Oldest known quote on sundials

Later on, the Arabs were renowned for more complicated sundials of greater accuracy and scope of design. Elsewhere on the globe, the Chinese were great users of sundials and the Aztecs and Inca civilizations in the Americas were also familiar with sundials.

The Nocturnal dial was first used in the 15th century by navigators
who needed to tell time by the position of the stars.

The best thing about our sundials is that they are made from

Harris Morrison first came across a portable sundial while searching through the antique shops of Paris. He discovered an object, a very old sundial, so beautiful that he had to buy it. Fascinated, he began a period of intense research and joined the British and American Sundial Societies.

As he began to learn about portable sundials, or “dials” for short, Harris drew on his many years as a master potter and his experience as a jeweler and began to design elegant, fully functioning modern versions of sundial timepieces.

Shepherd’s Watch® sundial jewelry combines the beauty of intricate craftsmenship with a link to past centuries, when human inventiveness and the daily rhythms of life were closer to nature. Harris has paid close attention to: functionality (make sure the dials work), appearance (make sure they are attractive), and historical accuracy (make sure they are faithful to their originals)

To ensure historical accuracy, Harris consults with experts in the sundial field.
