41 Secretly Incredible Travel Destinations The Eiffel tower, Golden Gate Bridge and the Coliseum may be amazing in their own right, but there's something special about going to a spectacular location that few travelers venture to. Take a virtual journey with me to these secretly underrated places... Albarracín is a beautifully preserved medieval village in Northern Spain. The rock paintings in the cliff-foot caves of the Albarracin Cultural Park (some of the most important evidences of the Levantine prehistoric art of Spain) and the "Picaportes" (door knobs) are something to marvel at! Take a trip to the hanging Gardens of Marqueyssac overlooking the Dordogne and La Roque Gageac. From July to the end of August the gardens are open every Thursday evening and lit by candlelight.

Pacific Northwest Seismic Network Plate tectonics describes the motions of the 15 to 20 large rigid and brittle tectonic plates into which the Earth's outermost layer (called the "lithosphere") is broken. It does a good job at explaining the distribution of most of Earth's earthquakes, mountains and other geological features, and a particularly good job at explaining features on the ocean floor. However, it is challenged to explain the details of the older rocks on the continents, and the occurrence of deformation an earthquakes off of plate boundaries. How to build electronic devices on your own Building electrical devices is probably the most inexpensive engineering you can do because most electronic components are very cheap, like less than $1. How to actually build devices on your own isn't taught enough in engineering courses, so here's a quick summary of how to get started making devices like I have on my site. In this page, I kind of assume you're an engineer/scientist of some sort (or studying to be one) and that you've already had a few electrical engineering classes. If you don't know any electrical engineering, you'll obviously need to learn the basics before you can start inventing. A good place to start is the book Make: Electronics

5 Great Sites for Exploring Cities Around the Globe When Google launched its panoramic photomapping service back in 2007, it was the first time many netizens had the chance to explore a swathe of detailed street-level photos from their armchairs. In the U.S., Street View's rivals now include Microsoft's Silverlight-powered "Streetside" via Bing Maps and MapQuest's 360 View. Elsewhere in the world, other international sites offer rival photomapping for their particular part of the globe, even as the reach of Google's Street View steadily increases.

Multilingual Universe from 'Mitaka' The door to the digital Universe has been flung open! Mitaka, a free downloadable software program to visualize the Universe based on real astronomical data, now accommodates a variety of the languages found on planet Earth. With this upgrade, many people all over the globe can use a PC to navigate through the digital Universe in their native language. The Four-Dimensional Digital Universe (4D2U) Project of the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan (NAOJ) was launched in 2001. This project aims to visualize the latest astronomical data obtained by observations and numerical simulations. The 4D2U project has developed various contents visualizing the Universe, including the software known as "Mitaka" and dozens of movie clips.

A New Debate on Net Neutrality Since a federal court ruled last month that the Federal Communications Commission can no longer enforce its policy of network neutrality -- which ensures that Internet service providers provide the same quality of service to all websites -- Democratic lawmakers have been busy searching for a way to keep the rules in place through new legislation. But with the telecommunications lobby's history of fighting hard against earlier such bills, and the possibility that at least one technology company could change its tune on the subject, the current push will face a difficult slog. Technology companies and open Internet advocates tend to favor net neutrality, as it prevents Internet providers from giving preferential service to any website, no matter the size or the amount of bandwidth it uses. This isn't a new debate. The FCC crafted its current rules in 2010 and pushed them out the next year after months of debate.

Panoramic pictures and virtual tour of World - 360 Cities Welcome to Earth! It's a planet having an iron core, with two-thirds of its surface covered by water. Earth orbits a local star called the Sun, the light of which generates the food supply for all the millions of species of life on earth. The dominant species on Earth is the human being, and you're one of the six billion of them! 18 Life Lessons Learned From Traveling The World I never thought I would still be nomadic. My original round-the-world trip was only supposed to last one year before I went back home, found a “real” job, settled down, and by now, be married, have a house, 2.5 children, and complain about my retirement fund to my friends. Yet life took a decidedly different turn and here I am, seven years later, writing this from an overnight train to Copenhagen with the same desire to explore the world and no sign of stopping soon. After so many years on the road, there are a few life lessons I’ve learned from travel that I never would have learned otherwise and I wanted to share with you today. 1. It’s not that hard.
