List of 40 FREE Educational Websites According to webometrics, there are more than 17 000 universities, but getting a degree in many of them is quite costly.

Classic Short Stories London's first official tube map showing how long it takes to walk between stops There have been a few attempts at drawing up walking maps of London Underground. Now TfL has drawn up an official map showing the time taken to walk between tube stops – and in some cases it’s actually quicker to walk. For example, Leicester Square to Covent Garden takes just four minutes, Charing Cross to Embankment takes three minutes, and Cannon Street to Mansion House takes four minutes. A spokesman told the Evening Standard: ‘What we have seen is that people are desperate for this sort of thing, so we have created it.
