So, in the UK for example, healthcare spending is calculated as being U$3,971 and that works about at U$49 per year of life expectancy.

In My Maps you can create maps that contain placemarks to identify landmarks, to indicate the locations of a series of events, and to show the start and end points of journey. Within all of those placemarks you can include text descriptions, images, and videos. Students can include pictures they've taken and videos they have made.

Meanwhile from the late 20th century the resources and environment problems have spread our interests over the polar regions and oceans such as, (1) Sea ice around the North pole representing the global warming, (2) Territorial sea claims for marine resources, (3) An ozone hole above the South Pole, (4) Melting glaciers in Greenland, a cause that may submerge Tuvalu, (5) El Nino in the ocean, a cause of an unusual weather that eventually influence to the economy on land.

By last summer, the collection featured six locations, including reefs around Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, the Philippines and Hawaii. It also now features locations off the coast of Bermuda, though one of the more ambitious projects for Street View was surely the addition of the Galapagos Islands last May.

During a presentation at its I/O developer conference last year, Google explained that the divers typically cover about 2 kilometers and take between 3,000 and 4,000 images per dive during their expeditions.
