Night Sky Panorama-Bonneville Salt Flats-3D Panorama - Aurora
The Bonneville Salt Flats are a striking sight in daytime. At night the feel can be otherworldly. The darkness of Utah's West Desert is punctuated here by a lone interstate highway and the town of Wendover, which provides illumination for the salt floor without overpowering the night sky.The green glow along the horizon is from distant mercury vapor lighting in the Salt Lake City area, while the orange glow is from high pressure sodium vapor lighting. Photographed about an hour earlier, the salt flats at dusk displays the surface texture of this expanse in a different light (literally!). - Martin van Hemert

Top Tips For Reducing Inflammation In The Body Most health experts now agree that inflammation is the root cause behind most all chronic illnesses and disease. While there are a variety of causes for chronic inflammation in the body, the outcome is always the same. Over time and left unchecked it leads to premature aging and diminished health. Quite frequently when individuals set out to lose weight the last thing they’re thinking about is inflammation. Henry Hargreaves's Photos of What Famous Musicians Eat Backstage A rider is a contractual proviso that outlines a series of stipulations or requests between at least two parties. While they can be attached to leases and other legal documents, they’re most famously used by musicians or bands to outline how they need their equipment to be set up and arranged, how they like their dressing room organized, and what types of food and beverages they require. Anyone who’s seen Spinal Tap knows these requests can be extremely outrageous and unreasonable. (And, in the case of Iggy Pop's, unexpectedly hilarious.) I was inspired to create this series after reviewing a few riders from some of the biggest acts in the world, all of which were ridiculous. But what I found most interesting about them is that they offered a glimpse into their larger-than-life personalities.

40 Of The Most Powerful Photographs Ever Taken Sisters pose for the same photo three separate times, years apart. A Russian war veteran kneels beside the tank he spent the war in, now a monument.

Check out these wild natural phenomena. STANDING IN A CORNFIELD IN INDIANA, I once saw a fat roll cloud (like #4 below) float directly over my head. It’s a 12-year-old memory that remains fresh. There was a moment of mild panic just as the cloud reached me — Is this what a tornado looks like right before it hits? I thought.

A shell shocked reindeer looks on as World War II planes drop bombs on Russia in 1941 wellnessmama I’ve been meaning to write this post for a long time and finally had the time while the kids are napping and I am (ironically) sipping a Chia Seed Energy Drink (recipe below). If you don’t already use chia seeds, you are missing out! Not only are they gluten/grain free naturally, but one tablespoon of Chia Seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries. Perfect? Almost… they do get stuck in your teeth if you chew them plain (ask me how I know that!). They also give you tons of energy but also won’t keep you awake at night and are supposed to be great for weight loss.

Grown in the mountains of Peru, it has been called “Peruvian ginseng.” Maca’s benefits have been long valued, and has recently been popularized as a supplement and food ingredient. There are no serious known side effects of maca, but like any other supplement it should not be taken in large amounts. When you first start using maca, it’s best to begin by taking smaller amounts and building up; even 1/2 teaspoon is a good place to start. And at the other end, 1 tablespoons (of the powder) is an average daily dose.
