Hello and welcome again family, such a pleasure to have you here, this May edition is focused on showing you some interestings data and facts about some countries of T3 members,hope you enjoy this!


I'm from Ukraine so I decided to share one interesting fact about my country!

One of the popular facts of the history of Ukraine is the history of its inhabitants. Artifacts of the Tryplian culture testify to the fact that people lived on the territory of modern Ukraine as early as the fifth century B.C



In Italy, a paint was created that aims to improve the environment and people's lives by purifying the air. It is a powder paint to which, by adding water which contains titanium dioxide capable of activating in contact with light (both natural and artificial), it transforms pollutants such as nitrogen and sulfur oxides, benzene, formaldehyde and monoxide of carbon in salt molecules. A paint capable of "eating" the dirt that is in the air, outdoors or inside a building, purifying it from 88.8% of the pollution present, and which is used inside buildings in in which we live contributes to making them more hygienic and healthy. Among the benefits of Airlite (that is the name of the paint) there is also the fact that it eliminates 99.9% of bacteria and viruses, both resistant to antibiotics, such as Staphylococcus Aureus, and effective on other bacteria dangerous to human health such as Escherechia Coli, peritonitis , meningitis and many others, creating healthier and safer environments and also avoiding the formation of possible allergies, itching, headaches, coughs, asthma and other respiratory tract disorders. Another interesting feature is the reduction of energy consumption: in fact, this revolutionary paint reflects most of the infrared solar radiation, preventing the excessive passage of heat. This allows for cooler environments in the summer, in a natural way, with electricity savings between 15 and 50%. Finally, the ability to eliminate odors from everyday environments and dirt from internal and external walls, transforming them into natural air purifiers.

Here are some facts from El Salvador

What is the Day of the Cross?

It is a celebration that every May 3 commemorates the beginning of planting and the rainy season in El Salvador, a custom initially held by the indigenous people who lived in the territory of present-day El Salvador. The objective is to have a blessing for the crops. For some people it is a reason to give thanks for the rains and food. The Day of the Cross marks the month of May, in which the Virgin Mary is also celebrated in the Catholic Church and mothers on May 10.

Mix of cultures

The Day of the Cross is a sample of the religious syncretism of the indigenous culture with the Hispanic one. When the Spaniards arrived in America, they changed this custom, orienting it to the Christian rite and replacing the god Xipe Tótec with a cross. That combination of beliefs is what has been lived in El Salvador for centuries.

feast of a god

The natives dedicated this celebration to Xipe Tótec, deity of death and the rebirth of what exists in nature. Xipe Totec means "our flayed lord". He was donning the skin of a human victim to represent the new skin that covered the earth. He was part of the Mexica culture, the one that had a presence in Mesoamerica. In El Salvador, a representation of the Xipe Tótec was discovered, which can be seen in the National Museum of Anthropology (MUNA), in San Salvador.

Jiote stick (Bursera simaruba)

The jiote stick coincides with the god Xipe Tótec due to the detachable bark. It is also related to nature because the jiote changes its bark and flourishes. And a third link is made with Christianity, seeing in it the renewal of humanity after the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
