Freebase

  1. Oasis

    In geography, an oasis or cienega is an isolated area of vegetation in a desert, typically surrounding a spring or similar water source. Oases also provide habitat for animals and even humans if the area is big enough. The location of oases has been of critical importance for trade and transportation routes in desert areas. Caravans must travel via oases so that supplies of water and food can be replenished. Thus, political or military control of an oasis has in many cases meant control of trade on a particular route. For example, the oases of Awjila, Ghadames and Kufra, situated in modern-day Libya, have at various times been vital to both North-South and East-West trade in the Sahara. Oases are formed from underground rivers or aquifers such as an artesian aquifer, where water can reach the surface naturally by pressure or by man made wells. Occasional brief thunderstorms provide subterranean water to sustain natural oases, such as the Tuat. Substrata of impermeable rock and stone can trap water and retain it in pockets, or on long faulting subsurface ridges or volcanic dikes water can collect and percolate to the surface. Any incidence of water is then used by migrating birds who also pass seeds with their droppings which will grow at the water's edge forming an oasis.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    De nombreux événements de la vie peuvent être comparés avec les mirages qui trompent toujours le voyageur dans le désert toujours fuyant. nous courons parfois après séduisante rêves attrayantes dans l'espoir de les atteindre, mais en vain. à un certain stade, nous découvrons que tous ceux qui étaient seulement nos délires .... les rêves, les gens et les promesses que nous avons couru après ne sont pas vraiment ce que nous pensions qu'ils soient. à ce stade, il est préférable de passer à autre chose, et ne pas penser à ces rêves une défaillance humaine, trompeuses, et les promesses non tenues. à mon avis, tout en reconnaissant les mirages illusoires dans le temps à droite est le plus important pour le voyageur - parce qu'elle est la première étape dans la direction du chemin clair, ce qui peut souvent conduire à l'oasis, le succès final. La vie est rien, mais de passer! La vie continue!
