Arrow Parallel Lines

Clip from 31 North 62 East..
The 31st parallel north is a circle of latitude that is 31 degrees north of the Earth's equatorial plane.. It crosses Africa, Asia, the Pacific Ocean, North America and the Atlantic Ocean..Part of the border between Iran and Iraq is defined by the parallel.. In the United States, it defines part of the border between the states of Mississippi and Louisiana, and most of the border between Alabama and Florida..At this latitude the sun is visible for 14 hours, 10 minutes during the summer solstice and 10 hours, 8 minutes during the winter solstice..Fetal development - 31 weeks pregnant-Your baby weighs about 1.5kg and looks more than ever like a newborn..

Historically, most calendar reforms have been made in order to synchronize the calendar with the astronomical year (either solar or sidereal) and/or the synodic month in lunar or lunisolar calendars..When Julius Caesar took power in Rome, the Roman calendar had ceased to reflect the year accurately.. The addition of an intercalary month to the year when needed had not been applied consistently, because it affected the length of terms of office..The Gregorian calendar is currently used by most of the world..Some calendar reformers seek to equalize the length of each month in the year.. This is often accomplished by creating a calendar that has 13 months of 4 weeks (28 days) each, making 364 days.. The earliest known proposal of this type was the Georgian Calendar (1745) by Rev. Hugh Jones..The contemporary ISO basic Latin alphabet has 26 letters, which could be used, together with a further binary indicator, as keys for 52 weeks...
