Planets in astrology have a meaning different from the modern astronomical understanding of what a planet is. Before the age of telescopes, the night sky was thought to consist of two very similar components: fixed stars, which remained motionless in relation to each other, and "wandering stars" (Ancient Greek: ἀστέρες πλανῆταιasteres planetai), which moved relative to the fixed stars over the course of the year.
To the Greeks and the other earliest astronomers, this group comprised the five planets visible to the naked eye, and excluded the Earth. Although strictly the term "planet" applied only to those five objects, the term was latterly broadened, particularly in the Middle Ages, to include the Sun and the Moon (sometimes referred to as "Lights"), making a total of seven planets. Astrologers retain this definition today.
To ancient astrologers, the planets represented the will of the gods and their direct influence upon human affairs. To modern astrologers the planets represent basic drives or urges in the unconscious, or energy flow regulators representing dimensions of experience. They express themselves with different qualities in the twelve signs of the zodiac and in the twelve houses. The planets are also related to each other in the form of aspects.
Planet is a quarterly cultural and political magazine that looks at Wales from an international perspective, and at the world from the standpoint of Wales.
The magazine publishes high-quality writing, artwork and photography by established and emerging figures, and covers subjects across politics, the arts, literature, current events, social justice questions, minority language and culture, the environment and more.
Planet enjoys a vibrant and diverse international readership and is read by key figures in the Welsh political cultural scene.
The magazine was originally set up as a bi-monthly publication by Ned Thomas in 1970, and was published continually until 1979. This followed a decision in 1967 to devolve the function of The Arts Council of Great Britain in Wales to the Welsh Arts Council. Thomas explained that "The arts council's literature director, Meic Stephens, had a vision of creating a publishing base in Wales that hadn't existed before". The magazine was renamed Planet: the Welsh Internationalist in 1977.
The constant structure was formed in 1980. In 1982 they published their first album «Flying for line».
In 1991 the band plays at a Soviet-Japanese-American festival in Vladivostok.
In 1995 the group publishes the CD «Blessed to Feel», the first CD of a Far Eastern rock group. There was a considerable number of groups by then in Khabarovsk and the band "Track" decided to start rock club "Roxy" on June, 24th, 1995.
In 1996 "Track" performs at the Russian-American festival in Vladivostok "Vladi-ROCKstok-96". There was a manager of the band "Nazareth" present at that festival. He invited the "Track" for a joint concert with «Nazareth» in Vladivostok. Tours «Nazareth» coincide with Dan McCafferty's 50 anniversary and "Track" also was officially invited to celebrating of anniversary. McCafferty said in exclusive interview for TVA: «"Trek" is the best that I heard in Russia». But then "Trek" broke up.
Potassium channel subfamily K member 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the KCNK2gene.
This gene encodes K2P2.1, one of the members of the two-pore-domain background potassium channel protein family. This type of potassium channel is formed by two homodimers that create a channel that leaks potassium out of the cell to control resting membrane potential. The channel can be opened, however, by certain anesthetics, membrane stretching, intracellular acidosis, and heat. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Function in neurons
Another name for this channel is TREK-1. TREK-1 is part of the subfamily of mechano-gated potassium channels that are present in mammalian neurons. They can be gated in both chemical and physical ways and can be opened via both physical stimuli and chemical stimuli. TREK-1 channels are found in a variety of tissues, but are particularly abundant in the brain and heart and are seen in various types of neurons. The C-terminal of TREK-1 channels plays a role in the mechanosensitivity of the channels.
A planet orbiting a distant star, light years from the sun?. Well, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) has just returned its first-ever picture of just that – a planet orbiting a distant star ... But for those who’ve grown up on a diet of StarTrek, Star Wars, and myriad other works of science fiction, the images may be underwhelming.

In some ways the science fiction series “Firefly” is a lot like the original “StarTrek,” had the United Federation of Planets been soundly defeated and humanity surrendered to be dominated by a malevolent interplanetary empire, and the ship’s captain (Nathan Fillian), who didn’t take the surrender well, is left bitter, resentful and rebellious.
Paramount+ will, for the third time, be celebrating StarTrek Day — the anniversary of the Star Trek ... Star Trek ... Each augmented reality experience will be based on a current Star Trek series, featuring fully 3D alien planets, classic starships, and iconic characters as they interact with both the virtual and physical worlds.
George Lucas’s space opera drew as much from the past, with its princesses and knights, cowboys and swordfights, as it did from a future with spaceships and laser guns.\nOn television the cast of “StarTrek” frequently visited planets that resembled Earth’s historical periods ...
StarTrek’s William Shatner has said his trip to space emphasised to him how society is “gambling” with the planet ... “When I went up there and I could see the curvature of the Earth and the vast blackness surrounding it, it really hit home how much we don’t know and how we’re gambling with our planet.
