Skyddsrummet mitt i stan Skyddsrummet mitt i stan Ibland förvånas man över att lämningar från andra världskriget mitt i stan klarat sig helt från sprayburkar, sopor eller förstörelse. Eller för den delen sanering. Bergrummet ligger i en kulle mitt bland folk. I anläggningen finns det även ett valv. Således borde det varit företagens värdepaper, ritningar, räkenskaper mm som skulle låstas in här. Valvet tak har droppskydd för att skydda mot väta. I en av gångarna finns toaletten kvar. Handvevad ventilation. Decay när det är som bäst. Ytterligare ett rum i skyddsrummet visar att det använts för mer än personalskydd. som vanligt är alla bilder tagna i komplett mörker.. How Do Human Beings Perceive Reality and What Does it Matter? We are an infant race of seven billion separated by different belief systems of how the planet operates. Imagine a race united in their knowing rather than divided by their belief systems. At the same time we all perceive our physical reality to be the same. By simply perceiving ‘how the world is’, we are simultaneously creating it. If you really think about it, we take a child from a young age and pound them with our version of reality. Many of us have been programmed to believe that it’s a a dog eat dog world, that it’s every man for himself. We literally, scientifically have the ability to manifest any type of reality we desire given the type of energy we all emanate.

Kerry Way The Kerry Way (Irish: Slí Uíbh Ráthaigh)[2] is a long-distance trail in County Kerry, Ireland. It is a 214-kilometre (133-mile) long circular trail that begins and ends in Killarney. It is typically completed in nine days.[1] It is designated as a National Waymarked Trail by the National Trails Office of the Irish Sports Council and is managed by Kerry County Council, South Kerry Development Partnership and the Kerry Way Committee. The Way circles the Iveragh Peninsula and forms a walkers' version of the Ring of Kerry road tour. History[edit] A review of the National Waymarked Trails in 2010 found the Kerry Way to be one of the most heavily used of the trails. The name in Irish is Slí Uíbh Ráthaigh, meaning the Iveragh Way, called after the Iveragh Peninsula. Route[edit] The trail originally started at the River Flesk, 1 kilometre (1 mile) from Killarney, but has since been extended to start in the centre of Killarney.

Creepy Mansion Is Strangely Abandoned In 1976 And You Are About To See Why... Built in the thirties, this spectacular mansion definitely saw its share of grandiose affairs in its day, but sadly, its been abandoned since the seventies. Located just outside of New York City, the home is like a time capsule for a much more glamorous era — but it also happens to be full of creepy old relics as well. Photographer Bryan Sansivero decided to document the mansion as it is now, and what he found inside is pretty haunting. It’s also an incredible property, complete with a bowling alley, indoor tennis court, library, and two bars. See the abandoned mansion in all of its spooky glory below. The mansion has 57 rooms, and looks like something out of a horror movie. In every room, traces of the mansion’s opulent history remain. But there are also traces of it’s complete and total creepiness. Despite the ominous feel of the photographs, the spooky details are really just evidence of the family that used to live there.

o se sente uma mulher “Do you know what it feels like for a girl? Do you know what it feels like in this world?”Madonna Aconteceu ontem. Saio do aeroporto. Em uma caminhada de dez metros, só vejo homens. Aconteceu quando eu tinha treze anos. Agora, multiplique isso por todos os dias da minha vida. Sei que para homens é difícil entender como isso pode ser violência. Esses dias, estava sentada na praia vendo o mar, e dele saiu uma moça. O privilégio é invisível. No seu texto “Um teto todo seu”, Virgínia Woolf descreve por que seria impossível para uma hipotética irmã de Shakespeare escrever de forma genial como ele. “quando lemos sobre uma bruxa sendo queimada, uma mulher possuída por demônios, uma mulher sábia vendendo ervas… acho que estamos olhando para uma escritora perdida, uma poeta anulada.” Desde o início do patriarcado, há cinco mil anos, as mulheres não tiveram liberdade suficiente para serem cientistas ou artistas. Rio de Janeiro, 2013. Quantas violências eu sofro só por ser mulher? Abraços, Guilherme.

The Last Mimzy (2007 Maunsell Forts The Maunsell Forts were small fortified towers built in the Thames and Mersey estuaries during the Second World War to help defend the United Kingdom. They were operated as army and navy forts, and named after their designer, Guy Maunsell.[1] The forts were decommissioned in the late 1950s and later used for other activities. One of the forts is managed by the unrecognised Principality of Sealand; boats visit the remaining forts occasionally, and a consortium called Project Redsands is planning to conserve the fort situated at Redsand.

Ruinenland Mergelgruben Zur Galerie Bereits vor 2000 Jahren wurde hier im Tagebau Mergelgestein abgetragen, ab dem 15. Jahrhundert zum Bau von Häusern und Kirchen auch untertage. So entstand ein verzweigtes Gangsystem von mehreren hundert Kilometern, das sich in 10 bis 30 Metern Tiefe durch den Berg zieht, davon alleine rund 300 Km auf belgischer Seite. Noch heute ist der Zugang stellenweise möglich, wenn auch alles andere als ungefährlich. Bewaffnet mit Getränken, Taschenlampen und einem Batterie-Vorrat, der mehrere Tage ausgereicht hätte, stiegen wir bei sonnigen 26°C den Berg hinauf und begaben uns auf die Suche nach der ersten Grube. Wir wollten die Höhle gerade wieder verlassen, als sich von außen Stimmen näherten. Die dritte Mergelgrube hat gleich mehrere offene Eingänge; einen mit steilem Pfad im Osten und einen weiteren mit leichtem Weg im Südosten des Berges. Am Eingangsportal trafen wir einen ortsansässigen Mann, der mit seinem Hund den Abhang hinaufgestiegen war.
