4dSomme. The relatively low rolling chalk landscape of the Somme region was suited well to the development and technologies of WW1 trench warfare.


Large open field systems and scattered woodlands allowed the construction of long lines of interconnected defensive trench systems, while the woodland and forest gave cover to command and artillery positions. Many of the British soldiers saw their first fighting at the Battle of the Somme. They were part of a volunteer army called Kitchener's Army, recruited by the Minister of War, Lord Kitchener. 60 Years of Urban Change. A Land Beyond the Stars. À votre service, Monseigneur !

Are maritime law enforcement forces destabilizing Asia?

In the East China Sea, China conducts regular patrols with both CCG ships and other law enforcement vessels in the territorial sea and contiguous zone around the disputed Senkaku/Diaoyu Islands. Conflicting territorial claims between China and Japan has resulted in a number of incidents. The most prominent incident occurred on September 7, 2010 when a collision between a Chinese fishing trawler and Japanese Coast Guard patrol boats resulted in the arrest of the Chinese fishing captain.

The incident triggered a major diplomatic row between China and Japan. Battles. BatiParis : période de construction des immeubles parisiens. Ben's Guide to th US Government. Berlin 1928 und heute. Big, Allied and Dangerous (BAAD)

On my weekly walk to get groceries, I pass a row of brownstones — some well-kempt and majestic, some fossil-like and crumbling — bookended by a gleaming, square-windowed silver tower.

Block by Block, Brooklyn’s Past and Present

It’s an architectural contrast of a kind that’s commonplace throughout Brooklyn. The borough’s a patchwork of the old and new, but traces of its history aren’t spread evenly. There are 320,000-odd buildings in Brooklyn, and I’ve plotted and shaded each of them according to its year of construction. The result is a snapshot of Brooklyn’s evolution, revealing how development has rippled across certain neighborhoods while leaving some pockets unchanged for decades, even centuries. Boom to Bust.

Declassified US Nuclear Targets. Even though today’s nuclear targets list is classified, it probably doesn’t look dramatically different.

Declassified US Nuclear Targets

The United States still has about 1,900 nuclear warheads deployed on missiles and bombers (with thousands more on reserve), ready to be launched at a moment’s notice and able to hit their targets within 30 minutes. This unstable situation is extremely risky and has repeatedly come close to triggering nuclear war by accident. Moreover, many of today’s hydrogen bombs are hundreds of times more powerful than the two atom bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

If a nuclear war were to break out today, nuclear winter might kill most people on Earth. This leads to an important question: Just how many nuclear weapons do we actually need?

Mapping 24 Hours of Traffic Across the U.S. Highway System. Highway networks are often compared to the human circulatory system, an analogy that works on many levels. The hierarchical structure of highways, streets, and local roads matches that of our body’s arteries, veins, arterioles, venules, and capillaries. And like the circulatory system, highways serve as the infrastructure by which resources are distributed to where they are needed, keeping the system healthy and helping it to grow. The analogy also works visually, as demonstrated by the map below. Marine Traffic.
