Faroe Islands

The Faroe Islands is a group of 18 islands in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean, northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway. The Islands have a population of nearly 50,000 and a language and culture of their own. The Faroe Islands are undeniably beautiful: green, rugged and wind-swept. The countryside is dominated by steep mountains, vertical sea cliffs and picturesque valleys. During summer, the Faroe Islands turn extraordinarily green and this is usually the best time to visit.
There are over a hundred villages in the Faroe Islands. Nearly every single one of them is situated near the ocean, and to new visitors they may all seem to be very much alike. The houses are either painted in bright colours or the traditional black, whilst the roofs are often turf covered. The buildings are usually built very close to each other, which is very cosy. In most places sheep occupy the outfield throughout the whole year.
Although the history of the Faroe Islands dates back to the 6th century, towns didn’t start to appear until very late. For instance, the capital, Tórshavn, only counted about 100 inhabitants in 1900, whereas today the number has escalated into nearly 20,000. In the Faroe Islands the traditional village was to a certain extent self-sufficient. When the fishing industry took off in 1872, it was the beginning of the end for the traditional way of life in the small villages as fishing replaced farming and the growing population chose to settle in the fast growing towns instead.

Nathan Walsh’s Oil Paintings of Urban Landscape

Nathan Walsh creates amazing photorealistic paintings of cityscapes. “I am fascinated by the city”, says Nathan Walsh. “It's visual complexity and constant state of flux. The act of painting is an attempt fix this information and give vision to our experience of living within it.”
“By using simple mathematical ratios I can begin to describe concrete form within my picture plane. Over a period of time I will draw and redraw buildings, manipulating their height, width or nature in relation to other pictorial elements. By introducing spatial recession to these elements I aim to present a world the viewer can enter into and move around. Some of the more recent works deal with layers of information, whether this be the description of reflective surfaces or the combination of inside and outside spaces.”
Nathan Walsh was born in Lincoln in 1972. He studied at the Liverpool School of Art before completing his Masters Degree at the University of Hull. He has exhibited at the Royal Academy, Lambeth Palace and Eton College. Recently he has had hugely successful shows in London, California and Zurich. His work can be found in public and private collections worldwide.

10 Weird Animal Sex Habits

Animals have sex. And as diverse as the animal kingdom is, their sexual habits are bound to reflect just how different they truly are from one another. You have to imagine a furry mammal with opposable thumbs would reproduce by a means vastly different from an ungrippable cephalopod. And what one might call a “pleasure of the the flesh,” another might literally call a pain in the neck. Here are ten of the weirdest sexual behaviors–at least according to us humans anyway–that can be found right here in the animal kingdom.
Man may truly have its closest common ancestor in this ape, as it thinks of nothing but sex. After all, everything it does is draped in a hyper-sexual overcoat: they use sex to greet each other, resolve conflict (i.e make-up sex), and as bargaining chips to trade for food. They engage sexually in many of the ways us humans do (e.g. mutual masturbation, oral sex, French kissing) and some we do not (sometimes they fence with their penises, like phallic swashbucklers). And as a result of this sexually-saturated kind of culture, they are an incredibly peaceful species, although they may enjoy the occasional cock spar.

Hyper-realistic Sculptures by Marc Sijan

Milwaukee based artist Marc Sijan's Super realistic sculptures are "homages to humanity's fascination with its own forms - a fascination which has compelled artists throughout the millennia to mirror life in virtually every medium." Sijan's figures are incredibly lifelike, sensuous and graceful. In fact, they are so lifelike, they seem always on the verge of movement, a mere instant away from action. The pores in the skin, the tiny hairs, and veins; even the bald spots, the blemishes, the individual shapes of the faces that make human beings so similar, yet so unique: These are the essence of what makes Marc Sijan's work so arresting.

Crescent Lake in Dunhuang China

Crescent lake also called Yueyaquan in Chinese is a beautiful crescent-shaped lake located 6 km south of the Dunhuang city in the arms of the Echoing-Sand Dune. The Crescent Lake's water is so pure and clear that it looks like an emerald jewel in the sand. Along the side of the Crescent Lake is a pagoda in traditional Han Chinese architecture. A street lined with souvenir stalls leads up from the entrance to the complex. Many tourists ride camels here, organized by the complex operators, to get to the summit of the sand dunes.
The lake has been in existence for at least two thousands, but for the last few decades it has been gradually disappearing. According to measurement made in 1960, the average depth of the lake was 4 to 5 meters, with maximum depth 7.5 meters. In the early 1990s, the area of the lake had shrunken to only 1.37-acre (5,500 m2) with average depth of 0.9 meter (maximum 1.3 meter). Crescent Lake has dropped more than 25 feet in the last three decades while the underground water table elsewhere in the area has fallen by as much as 35 feet.
In 2006, the local government with help of the central government started to fill the lake and restore its depth; its depth and size have been growing yearly since then.

the Tallest Bridge in the World

The Millau Viaduct is a cable-stayed road-bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in southern France. Designed by the French structural engineer Michel Virlogeux and British architect Norman Foster, it is the tallest bridge in the world with one mast's summit at 343.0 meters above the base of the structure. It is also the 12th highest bridge in the world, with a 270 meters drop from the bridge road to the valley below. The 2460 meters long bridge is a stunning architectural and design feat. And it is beautiful to look at as well.
The bridge was opened in 2004 to close the "missing link" on the A75 autoroute that connects Paris in the north to Perpignan in the south; the Millau Viaduct was the result of 17 years of ideas, proposals, and design that resulted in shaving 37 miles off the former route through the region. But rather than choose a mundane design that simply did the job, the French went big.

Bizarre Deaths of the Middle Ages

The Middle Ages, also known as the Medieval Period, spanned between the fifth and fifteenth centuries, ending with the death of Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth Field. Given the brutality of the time period, the idea of death was viewed very differently than the modern perception, and average life expectancy was significantly lower than today. War and savage violence was extremely common and as such, untimely deaths were not considered unusual. This list encompasses some of the most famously bizarre deaths in recorded history.
Richard I
Richard I Of England
Cause of Death: Shot down by a boy who was holding a frying pan.
In 1199 Richard I had bankrupted England, thanks to the costly Third Crusade and his subsequent ransom payment after being captured by the German Emperor. To finance his war efforts in France, Richard found he needed vast amounts of money which could not be provided on tax alone. Fittingly he died whilst looking for money at Castle Chalus-Chabrol in France, which housed a pot of gold according to rumor. During the siege of the tiny castle, a young boy fighting with a frying pan grabbed a crossbow and shot into a group of knights on horseback. He hit one in the shoulder, and the victim immediately stood up and congratulated the child on his well-aimed shot. This knight was Richard the Lionheart. Richard died days later as the minor wound turned gangrenous, though on his deathbed he awarded his impoverished killer one-hundred shillings in an act of final chivalry. Despite this, the boy who killed Richard was later flayed alive on the orders of one of Richard’s generals and Eleanor of Aquitaine, Richard’s grieving mother, before a public hanging.

Got Milk? [infographic]

Now for some milky knowledge. Milk hits your grocery store in just two days, making it the freshest beverage. Humans over 9 years of age should drink 3 glasses of milk per day, which means I better get to the grocery and up my milk intake. Milk is also an excellent source of calcium, riboflavin, vitamin d, phosphorus, vitamin b-12 and many more. These health benefits just can’t be beat! Lets drink some milk, preferably with some cookies. ;) [Via

Sailing Stones

The mysterious moving stones of the packed-mud desert of Death Valley have been a center
of scientific controversy for decades.
Rocks weighing up to hundreds of pounds
Have been known to move up to hundreds of yards at a time.
Some scientists have proposed
That a combination of strong winds and surface ice account for these movements.
However, this theory does not explain evidence of
Different rocks starting side by side
And moving at different rates and in disparate directions.
Moreover, the physics calculations do not fully support this theory
As wind speeds of hundreds of miles per hour
Would be needed to move some of the stones.

Top 10 Typography Crimes

Graphic design is a burgeoning industry. With the rise and ubiquity of the Internet in the last decade, web design especially has become prevalent. Other forms of graphic design include print, mobile, illustration, and typography. Typography refers to any design involving the arrangement of letters or alphabetical symbols in a space. Every design geek has taken a course in typography and knows the vast importance of it, yet basic type-crimes (errors or faux-pas in typography design) can still be seen virtually everywhere. While many are quick to dismiss the rules of graphic design, Ron L. Peters in his book Do Good Design emphasizes just how important good design is in our society: “Design creates culture. Culture shapes values. Values determine the future. Design is therefore responsible for the world our children will live in.” Practicing good design is of utmost importance, and good typography is crucial to good design as a whole. This list takes a look at 10 commonly occurring type-crimes:
(Note: to clear up further confusion, a “font” is a specific weight or style such as Arial 16 Bold, whereas “typeface” refers to the broader, all-encompassing Arial).

The Pros and Cons of Freelancing

The graphic, made as a collaboration between JESS3 and 24Seven, gives a good idea as to what potential freelancers can expect coming into this particular field, both the good and the bad.
The main reason many freelancers gave for their job happiness is the salary, which is not surprising since freelancers are expecting a 55% increase in pay this year. That pay bump combined with the freedom of their schedule and other benefits adds up to a pretty sweet-sounding job.
On the other hand, many freelancers also find it difficult to stay relevant, and it’s not like they’re totally off the hook on their schedule; they still have the same grueling deadlines as folks with traditional writing occupations. Thanks to these factors, writers who are in their first year of freelance work are often more likely to accept traditional employment versus people who have been freelancing for many years.
So if you’re a writer, freelancing could be a great experience for you or it might not be so great, but either way it definitely sounds like quite an experience and something you’ll remember for a long time.

The Widest Street in the World

9 de Julio Avenue (or Avenida 9 de Julio, in the local tongue) in downtown Buenos Aires, Argentina, is not just any street. Nine lanes wide, with gardened medians between the opposing flow of traffic, this is the widest street in the world. Only those with a quick pace and long legs will be lucky to get to the other side before the traffic lights at the intersection changes. A pedestrian crossing this street usually requires a few extra minutes and two to three traffic light rotations. 9 de Julio Avenue is only 1 km long but 110 meters wide.
The avenue's unusual width is because it spans an entire city block, the distance between two streets in the checkerboard pattern used in Buenos Aires. The avenue runs to the west of the Río de la Plata waterfront, from the Retiro district in the north to Constitución station in the south. It has up to seven lanes in each direction and is flanked on either side by parallel streets of two lanes each.
The street runs far in both directions and connects the unique sections of the metropolis. Some of Buenos Aires’ main landmarks can be seen along the way; most notably, the Obelisk, that sits in the middle of 9 de Julio, the original French Embassy, the statue of Don Quixote, the Teatro Colon and the former Ministry of Communications building - the only building that sits on the avenue itself at the intersection with Moreno street.


The Most Confusing Traffic Junction

The Magic Roundabout in Swindon, England, constructed in 1972, is the most brilliant and at the same time, the most confusing roundabout ever built. The roundabout, named after the popular children's television series by the same name, is located near the County Ground and consists of five mini-roundabouts arranged in a circle. At first sight, it might appear to confuse or amuse new visitors and certainly baffle tourists but once you understand how the roundabout works you will realize how revolutionary the idea is.
Before the roundabout was built, the area had been a motorist's nightmare which routinely failed to handle the volume of traffic which converged on it from five directions. The British Transport and Road Research Laboratory then came up with a brilliant solution.
All they did was combine two roundabouts in one - the first roundabout sends traffic rotating clockwise and the second roundabout, which revolves inside the first, sends traffic anti-clockwise. Vehicles can enter or exit the inner roundabout using any of the five mini roundabouts placed at appropriate positions. The Magic Roundabout is so efficient that the average Swindonian can find his or her passage through one of the town's busiest junctions with ease even at peak times. Forty years on, the Magic Roundabout still works, despite ever-increasing volumes of traffic.

Beautiful Black & White Storm Photography by Mitch Dobrowner

California-based photographer Mitch Dobrowner began shooting “Storms” in 2009 as an experiment to photograph the dramatic thunderstorms happening across the Great Plains and what is known as Tornado Alley. Dobrowner has since traveled more than 19,000 miles over 14 different states in the pursuit of the most extreme weather he can find.
“The goal is to capture the structure of supercell thunderstorms, the feeling of standing in wind gusts breaching 50 MPH, the lightning, the rumble of hail. I’ve never seen anything like these storms before. . . . They are born everyday, they fight against their environment to stay alive, change their form as they age, they lose their strength, and eventually they die. The hope is that the images presented communicate how I feel while standing in front of these amazing forces of nature.”
Mitch Dobrowner has just won the 2012 Sony’s World Photographer of the Year award with his stunning Storms series. Dobrowner’s extraordinary black and white photos of brooding skylines pregnant with impending storms defeated over 112,000 rival images that were submitted from 171 different countries.

One Rupee Note Rare Image In 1917


Moishe the Carpenter, returning home with his week’s wages,
was accosted by an armed robber on a deserted street.

“Take my money,” said Moishe, “but do me a favour: “Shoot a bullet through
 my hat otherwise my wife won’t believe I was robbed.”

The robber obliged.
He threw Moishe’s hat into the air and put a bullet through it.

“Let’s make it look as if I ran into a gang of robbers,” said Moishe,
 “otherwise my wife will call me a coward! Please shoot a number
of holes through my coat.”

So the robber shot a number of holes through the carpenter’s coat.
“And now…” continued Moishe.

“Sorry,” interrupted the robber.
“No more holes. I’m out of bullets.”

“That’s all I wanted to know!” said Moishe.

“Now hand me back my money and some more for the hat and coat that you’ve ruined or
 I’ll beat you black and blue!”

The robber threw down the money and ran.

The Universe Top To Bottom: The Scale of Our Solar System

I’ve been taking summer school courses in Astronomy this summer and boy has it been an eye-opener. Learning about the composition of stars, planets, and pretty much everything in the known universe has been fascinating to me. It’s hard to imagine and put into perspective just how vast (and mostly empty) our entire universe is, but this infographic at least sheds some light on just how big our solar system is.
From the rocky terrestrial Planets – heated craters of Mercury, hellish Venus, familiar Earth, and the faded glory of Mars – to the Gaseous Jovian Planets – giant Jupiter, beautiful Saturn, sideways Uranus and lonely Neptune – all the way out toward the Dwarf Planets – the club member Pluto all the way out to Eris, our furthest reaching planet orbiting the sun (taking almost 557 Earth years to complete one full orbit!). Our Solar System in itself is quite a journey. Launched almost 35 years ago, the Voyager 1 probe has traveled past our planets and beyond, but not even come close to one light-year away (distance at which light travels in one year) from Earth. Though, with probes like Voyager and it’s subsequent companions, we are now able to scan much more of the universe than ever before. It’ll only a matter of time before we finally find an extraterrestrial planet like our own. [Via]

Prettiest City Halls Of The World

In local government, a city hall, town hall or (more rarely) a municipal building or civic center, is the chief administrative building of a city town or other municipality. It usually houses the city or town council, its associated departments, and their employees. It also usually functions as the base of the mayor of a city, town, borough, or county. As symbols of local government, city and town halls have distinctive architecture, and the buildings may have great historical significance – for example the Guildhall, London. City hall buildings may also serve as cultural icons that symbolize their cities as is the case with Toronto City Hall, Brussels Town Hall, Philadelphia City Hall, and Los Angeles City Hall, that have been featured in Hollywood films.

इंसान जब सभ्य होने लगा तो उसे रहने की चिंता सताई। कभी पड़ों पर रहने वाले इंसानों ने पहाड़ों में बने गुफाओं को अपना घर बनाना शुरू किया। प्राकृतिक रूप से बनी ये गुफाएं उन्हें रोमांचित करती रहती थी। इसकी खोज में भटकते-भटकते उन्होंने कई गुफाओं की खोज कर ली। इनमें रहने के अलावा अपनी आस्था के मुताबिक मंदिर स्थापित किए। उनमें चित्रकारी की। इसका प्रमाण आज भी मौजूद है। 
रहस्य, रोमांच और आध्यात्म को प्रदर्शित करती ये गुफाएं आज भी इंसानों को लुभाती हैं। यही कारण है कि प्राकृतिक गुफाओं के अलावा कृत्रिम गुफाओं का भी निर्माण किया गया है। प्रमाणों के मुताबिक, सर्वप्रथम मानव निर्मित गुफाओं का निर्माण दूसरी शताब्दी ई.पू. के आसपास हुआ था।
आइए रहस्य, रोमांच और आध्यात्म को प्रदर्शित करती ऐसे ही कुछ गुफाओं को तस्वीरों के माध्यम से जानते और समझते हैं-

टाट वाले बाबा

अनोखे 'बाबा' की अनकही दास्तान, देखिए दुर्लभ तस्वीरें...
गठा हुआ लंबा शरीर। धरती को छूते लंबे-लंबे भूरे बाल। ओज से चमकता चेहरा। बुढ़ापे में भी जवानी जैसा जोश। जी हां, हम बात कर रहे हैं टाट वाले बाबा की। उनकी योग शक्ति से आज दुनिया भले ही अनजान है, लेकिन उनकी उपलब्धियां और शक्तियां बहुत महत्वपूर्ण थीं। टाट वाले बाबा का जन्म पंजाब के एक मध्यवर्गीय परिवार में हुआ था। बचपन में परिवारिक परिस्थितियों के कारण वह अधिक शिक्षा ग्रहण नहीं कर पाए थे। 9 साल की उम्र में वह योग और ध्यान करने लगे। बड़े होने पर उनकी शारीरिक बनावट देख कर मित्रों ने आर्मी ज्वाइन करने का सुझाव दिया। वह मान गए और आर्मी ज्वाइन कर ली, लेकिन उनको आर्मी का जीवन रास नहीं आया। उन्होंने दो महीने बाद ही इस्तीफा दे दिया और साधुओं की तरह जीवन जीने लगे।
