Does Zeus live on mount Olympus?

Zeus was one of the Olympian gods, and all the Olympian gods lived on Mt. Olympus. There were twelve Olympians. They were: Zeus, Hera, Poseidon, Demeter, Athena, Apollo, Artemis, Ares, Aphrodite, Hephaestus, Hermes, and Dionysus.

Hades was not considered one of the twelve Olympians, even though he is one of the major gods because he was not allowed on Olympus except on the winter solstice, the darkest day of the year. (Hades has his own palace down in the Underworld where he rules.)

What is Kronos's scythe?

Kronos's scythe was given to him by his mother, Gaia, which he would then use it to chop up his father. Typically a scythe was used for cutting grain and is not like a sword. When Luke became Kronos in the Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan, the scythe was remade and was named Backbiter, because it can harm halfbloods and mortals as the blade is half celestial bronze and half tempered steel.

How are Zeus and Hades different?

Zeus is the Lord of Olympus and the King of all Gods. He is unfaithful unlike his older brother Hades, the God of the Underworld who stays faithful to his wife, Persephone. They both have a way in showing their anger. While Zeus controls the weather with his mood, Hades would sometimes kill mortals without a cause. But Hades, who is not even depicted in the The Iliad, does not like getting close to Wars with his brothers. In fact, he lets Zeus and Poseidon do the fighting.

How did Zeus punish Calibos in the movie?

because of his cruelty in the nature

Calibos was spoiled by his mother, but he was handsome. Zeus gave him the wells of the moon in his care but Calibos instead hunted trapped and killed every living creature. Including Zeus' herd of sacred flying horses, all except the one remaining horse Pegasus. As punishment for his shameful mark of vile cruelty, Zeus transformed him into a being abhorrent to human sight, becoming a mortal mockery and thus being shunned and forced to live as an outcast in the swamps and marshes. He had horns, a devil tale, and the face of a demon. His mother, Thetis (Goddess of the sea), retaliated by punishing Andromeda and the city. She ordered Andromeda to be killed as a virgin, or the city would suffer and be destroyed by a sea monster- the kraken.

What kind of god his Zeus?

Zeus is the centrepiece of Greek mythology; the height of omnipotence. He was the god of lightning, which today seems pretty low, but to them lightning was spectacular and a great fantastical wonder. Today we understand lightning to be a relatively pathetic thing when you compare it, for example, to nuclear fission or indeed fusion; yet to them there was nothing more powerful, thus he who wields the lightning bolt is more powerful than any other force in the Cosmos.

He is portrayed as both father and king of the Gods and of men on earth (thus they must worship him, or be destroyed). He is in some instances merciful, others ruthless, others impartial. Yet always he is omnipotent and is more powerful than all the other Gods in the Pantheion (sometimes even when their forces are combined).

In terms of his role, he does more than just wield the lightning bolt. As in other religions, the lightning god is also the weather god, controlling the seasons, rainfall and other things which are essential for life itself.

Zeus' equivalent god in Roman mythology is Jupiter (Iupiter in the Latin texts), who also plays a very similar in Roman myths and legends; though note that the two are not exactly parallel: the Greeks were more interested in Philosophy (including the meaning of life), while the Romans only sought practical knowledge and didn't value life highly.

How many children have ADHD?

The frequency of occurence of ADHD can vary from country to country. We may note that funnily, the instances of ADHD in developed countries is higher than in under-developed countries. This is majorly attributed to the lack of established mechanisms to diagnose and treat the condition in most developing countries. Or in other words, the frequency could be much more outside of the developed world, but the infrastructure needed for diagnosis and treatment or for the documentation and assimilation of pertinent information is more often than not absent. So there may not be one reliably accurate number that gives the frequency of ADHD in children and young adults. But there are studies that show that it could be as varied as 3.5% in some countries (most likely developed ones) to as low as 1 in 250, or, about 0.4% in other countries (most likely in under-developed countries).

What also complicates the problem is, the definition of ADHD and minor hyperactivity is subject to debate. Some thought leaders also debate the validity of ADHD as a significant mental condition. Hope this helps.

ADD/ADHD is the most commonly diagnosed disorder of childhood, estimated to affect 3 to 5 percent of school-age children, and occurring three times more often in boys than in girls. It is estimated that on average about one child in every classroom in the United States needs help for this disorder.

No one knows for sure whether the number of people with ADD/ADHD has risen, but it is very clear that the number of children identified with the disorder who get treatment has risen over the past decade. This could be due to greater media interest, heightened consumer awareness, and the availability of effective treatments. Other countries are observing a similar pattern. Whether the frequency of the disorder itself has risen remains unknown, and needs more research.
