A Fluffy Pet next to Us

According to scientists, the ancestor of the domestic cat appeared 9 million years ago, and it was domesticated later than other animals. Africa is considered its homeland. When the fertile land of ancient Egypt gave rise to intensive farming, probably 9,000 years ago, farmers faced a problem. Rodents are crowded where there is a lot of grain. Fluffy pets were their only salvation from rodents. In gratitude, the ancient Egyptians let cats, or rather, wild Nubian cat that was somewhat domesticated at that time, into their homes. Together with their hunting qualities, the beauty of these animals delighted the owners of the houses, who deified their pets. According to Herodotus, the ancient Egyptians embalmed and buried cats in special stony sanctuaries.

Sacral Artefacts of Dagdan Wood

The hackberry has been grown for a long time in arid countries; these trees are also loved in Central Asia, the Caucasus and the Crimea, where they are used to landscape villages and cities and to build field protective belts. It is often called “stone tree” for its hard, strong, heavy and dense wood. The hackberry has strong and elastic wood; in the past, it was used for various household needs, woodwork items and decorative products. The plant also contains glycosides, carbohydrates, polysaccharides, fatty oils, vitamin C and citric acid. The leaves were used for feeding livestock, sometimes silkworms.

Development of the national economy in the era of might and happiness

The economy of Turkmenistan has been developing quite successfully over the years of independence. And already today, stable socioeconomic growth, reserves of natural resources and the country’s work in conditions of peace and stability make it possible to optimistically evaluate further steps in the development of the national economy. This is also confirmed by the independent authoritative international rating agency Fitch Ratings, which assigned to Turkmenistan a long-term rating B + stable. Such recognition provides additional opportunities for our country in foreign economic activity, confirming its reliability as a trading partner. How did the country manage to achieve such impressive results? Turkmenistan gained independence in 1991. Since then, we have undertaken a number of economic reforms aimed at developing a market economy. Being an industrial-agrarian republic within the USSR, the country, nevertheless, specialised mainly in the extraction of hydrocarbon resources and the production of raw cotton for the needs of the industrial centres of the former Soviet Union. In the system of the so-called all-Union cooperation, to a large extent (and based on modern realities), this was conditioned by the fact that Turkmenistan, in particular, ranks fourth in terms of natural gas reserves (15–20 trillion m3), second only to Russia itself, the USA and Canada.
