The Moses Bridge is Invisible to The Eye A series of moats and fortresses were built over the West Brabant Water Line region of the Netherlands during the 17th century in order to provide protection from invasion by France and Spain. Fort de Roovere was surrounded with a shallow moat that was too deep to march across, and too shallow for boats. In turn the earthen fort had remained protected –until now. From afar, the Moses Bridge is invisible to the eye. First lying flush with the earth, the bridge then descends deeper into the ground. The bridge can’t be seen from a distance because the ground and the water come all the way up to its edge. According to the designers, virtually no water spills over the edge because the height of the water is controlled by two small adjustable ‘dams’ at both sides of the moat. The Moses Bridge was built in about 2 months in the middle of the moat waters by first dredging around the bridge site and then driving sheet piles into the ground.

5 idei de mancaruri rapide servite pe paine | Cele mai tari ponturi studentesti! In perioada studentiei timpul e mereu o problema cand vine vorba de gatit si de cele mai multe ori micul dejun poate fi si pranz iar uneori si cina. Avand in vedere ca de sandwich-uri cam toata lumea s-a saturat, ne-am gandit sa va prezentam o alternativa la fel de usor de preparat: bruschette. Ce-i drept, este nevoie de un cuptor pentru a le prepara, insa acum mai toate caminele studentesti au bucatarii utilate iar pentru cei care stau cu chirie, cuptorul nu are cum sa lipseasca. Asadar, iata 5 retete de bruschette pe care vi le recomandam cu placere: 1. Pregatiti feliile de paine(de preferat paine la tava) ungandu-le cu unt si presarati sare. 2. La fel, ca si la cele cu busuioc si rosii, ungeti feliile de paine cu unt. 3. Procedeul ungerii feliilor il stiti deja, doar ca de data asta folositi usturoi granulat sa presarati peste ele si adaugati felii de sunca si cascaval peste. 4. Acest tip de bruschette este o combinatie intre cele de la pct. 2 si 3. 5.
