Politics bars Dead Sea from World Wonders contest

Author: Administrator

29/06/2009

The Dead Sea will be eliminated next week from a contest to choose the seven natural wonders of the world, because of a Palestinian boycott over the participation of an Israeli settler council.

Its almost certain exclusion from a competition which it had good chances of winning underline how the bitter politics of the Middle East conflict permeates every aspect of Palestinian life, no matter how harmless or even beneficial it may seem.

The perfect swimsuit to flatter on the beach this summer

Author: Administrator

29/06/2009

As you are planning your summer holiday, whether it be a staycation or The Seychelles, let Cheryl Cole be a warning.

The recent photographs of her on the French Riviera, in a studded cut-out one-piece, more lime-tastic than Borat’s mankini, more spikey bits than Ben Hur’s chariot, should be enough to send you scurrying to the safety of a flattering LBS, otherwise known as the Little Black Swimsuit.

If Mrs Cole, with her streamlined silhouette, can’t make a crystal-embellished, fluoro-flash monokini work – no-one can.

The perfect swimsuit is one that is on your side; not a look-at-me horror that will haunt you in a hundred and one holiday snaps for years after.

Moon-lovers remember Apollo with radio chit-chat

Author: Administrator

28/06/2009

Radio hams and amateur astronomers around the world spent the weekend bouncing radio conversations off the Moon to one another in commemoration of the Apollo 11 landings 40 years ago, organizers in Australia said Sunday.
Although they had some clear and extensive conversations, they had to be patient. It takes around 2.5 seconds for a radio signal to reach the Moon and bounce back to another part of the Earth, so it took around five seconds to get a reply.

Author: Administrator

27/06/2009

Swiss adventurer Bertrand Piccard unveiled Friday the prototype of a solar powered plane he plans to fly around the world to highlight the potential of alternative energy sources.

The prototype, HB-SIA, has the wingspan of a jumbo jet but weighs only as much as an average family car.

The propeller plane is powered by four electric motors and designed to fly day and night by saving surplus energy from its 24,000 solar cells in high-performance batteries.

Summer Beach Style

Author: Administrator

27/06/2009

The shape of things If you’re quite straight up and down, go for bikini bottoms with ties on the side – it will make you look a little curvier. If you’re pear-shaped, you need a bikini that will help balance the upper half of your body with the lower half. Accessorised bikini tops or a rouched bandeau teamed with a plain, simple brief is the perfect combination. If you’re big chested, you don’t necessarily need to go for an underwire, as it can look as if you’re wearing a bra on the beach.Just make sure you buy a swimsuit top that has adjustable ties so you can tighten for support. It will give the same effect as an underwire.

Portugal village worth its salt with the tourists

Author: Administrator

26/06/2009

Shoveling drying salt in a pit under scorching sun while tourists and fellow villagers drink beer and look on from above may sound like a miserable experience, but not in Salinas, Portugal.

The presence of tourists in the cafes on the ancient wall above the salt pit in this tiny Portuguese village some 100 km (62.14 miles) north of Portugal’s capital Lisbon is more than welcome and causes no consternation.

Author: Administrator

“Generally speaking, bars aren’t the first stop on most tourists’ lists of places to see, but when you learn about the people they inspired and the events for which they were the backdrop, they become incredibly culturally significant,” said VirtualTourist.com’s General manager Giampiero Ambrosi.

Foods That Make You Look Younger-New life for old cuisines

chinafood8Hotel waiter delivering room service, breakfast in foregroundYou can head off a lot of your most common beauty concerns simply by downing the right foods. That's right—eating well not only does wonders for your waistline and bolsters your immune system but can also provide some very real get-gorg benefits, such as smoothing wrinkles, giving hair a glossy shine and strengthening flimsy nails. "Your diet directly affects your day-to-day appearance and plays a significant role in how well you age," says Joshua Zeichner, MD. The smart approach, Dr. Zeichner says, is to create a plan that includes what he calls "the building blocks of healthy skin and hair"—nutrients, minerals and fatty acids—as well as antioxidants to protect your body from damaging environmental stresses. Get ready to nab some beauty-boosting perks by tossing these essential face-saving edibles into your grocery cart.What to eat to keep young and beautiful and among those products is Feta cheese is packed full of vitamin B12, which speeds up the replacement of dead skin cells. cfood1Central Asian restaurants have made a place for themselves in Beijing's Russian district, and diners are licking their lips, Erik Nilsson reports. Erik Nilsson The old Soviet Union is reuniting in Beijing - for dinner. At least its cuisine is. Central Asian fare has taken a central place at the table in the Yabaolu neighborhood's dining scene, as the city's "Russiatown" transforms into "Beijing-istan".Natives of the "stans" are making culinary inroads into China's capital as the New Silk Road Economic Belt develops, while fewer Russian traders are frequenting the declining Yabaolu fur market that spurred the original development of the surrounding Slavic enclave.This means compote, a juice of mixed fruits, is diluting volumes of vodka, as the tides of the boiled dried-fruit juice rise and the hard-drinking part of town dries up. (Actually, many of the area's Central Asian eateries are halal, but allow you to bring your own booze.) There's more yogurt and less mayonnaise. More kebabs and fewer cutlets. More plov (Central Asia's rice staple) and fewer potatoes.These eateries dot the Shenlu dining street behind the fur market, sprinkled among restaurants serving sustenance from China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Mongolia,Greece,Turkey and Italy.food7People will choose larger portions of food if they are labeled as being "healthier," even if they have the same number of calories, according to a new study."People think (healthier food) is lower in calories," said Pierre Chandon, a marketing professor at the INSEAD Social Science Research Center in France, and they "tend to consume more of it." That misconception can lead to people eating larger portion sizes of so-called healthy foods, and therefore more calories."Foods are marketed as being healthier for a reason, because food producers believe, and they correctly believe, that those labels will influence us to eat their products and perhaps eat more of their products,"
