I ❤️ Voyager
#TIL
The Beatles turned down the invitation to have their music on the golden record sent into space!
NASA refused to have 1 photo, amongst about a hundred sent into space, feature naked humans!!
Both Voyagers, will outlast us, our planet and our sun.

Of course!
We all know about 'for sun/rain (paragua in Spanish) but hadn't really thought about.. umbrella itself!
Had you +Suzanne Seyghal Buckingham​?!

"The word "parasol" (Spanish or French) is a combination of para, meaning to stop or to shield, and sol, meaning sun. "Parapluie" (French) similarly consists of para combined with pluie, which means rain (which in turn derives from pluvia, the Latin word for rain). Hence, a parasol shields from sunlight while a parapluie shields from rain. (Parachute means "shield from fall".)

The word "umbrella" evolved from the Latin umbella(an umbel is a flat-topped rounded flower) or umbra, meaning shaded or shadow."

"The great irony of Brexit is that never before has Europe had greater power over Britain's fate. And all this for a deal that, whatever its terms, will be inferior to the UK's present membership. If 2016 was the year that Britain voted to "take back control", 2017 was the year that the EU did."
"With good reason, the only country that currently trades with the rest of the globe under World Trade Organisation rules is Mauritania."

Indeed.
