Yahoo! News Extracts : World's Fastest Train!

Bookmark and Share

Yesterday, China launched the World's Fastest Operational Train!!

Read All About It From Yahoo! News.

BEIJING (AFP) China on Saturday unveiled what it billed as the fastest rail link in the world -- a train connecting the modern cities of Guangzhou and Wuhan at an average speed of 350 kilometres (217 miles) an hour.

The super-high-speed train reduces the 1,069 kilometre journey to a three hour ride and cuts the previous journey time by more than seven and a half hours, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Work on the project began in 2005 as part of plans to expand a high-speed network aimed at eventually linking Guangzhou, a business hub in southern China near Hong Kong, with the capital Beijing, Xinhua added.

"The train can go 394.2 kilometres per hour, it's the fastest train in operation in the world, [ Click To Read On... ]

REVIEW?? : MAGNIFICENT!!

It looks like lights on Christmas Trees...
They light up very simultaneously!!
BUT they are really real fireflies; one of it flew and landed right on me!!

But, everywhere is pitch dark.the good thing is we can see the fireflies better!
It
must be seen by the human eyes..because when I video-ed it, it looks very dark & you can't really see them.


' YOU MUST GO AND SEE THE FIREFLIES FOR YOURSELVES !! '

And did you know; not only the fireflies glow BUT their eggs, larva & pupa too!

P.S. - they are best seen when the night is clear and it isn't raining .

Review Of A Christmas Carol

Bookmark and Share

A CHRISTMAS CAROL;
BELOW EXPECTATIONS.

Alright, I have just watched it yesterday, Graphics Are Good, Nice BUT, The story's a little bit draggy & their British accent is very deep
. ( There is also no subtitles in the 3-D version, Perhaps there may be subtitles in the normal version. )

Maybe it's also the 3-D glasses that made the movie look too dark & too dull.

All I got to say is It Can be Improved ..

So Its >> 3.5 Stars for me.

Yahoo! News Extracts : 100 Icebergs Drifting To New Zealand!

Bookmark and Share

Here Is An Interesting News I Got From Yahoo! News.


SYDNEY (AFP) More than 100, and possibly hundreds, of Antarctic icebergs are floating towards New Zealand in a rare event which has prompted a shipping warning, officials said on Monday.

An Australian Antarctic Division glaciologist said the ice chunks, spotted by satellite photography, had passed the Auckland Islands and were heading towards the main South Island, about 450 kilometres (280 miles) northeast.

Scientist Neal Young said more than 100 icebergs -- some measuring more than 200 metres (650 feet) across -- were seen in just one cluster, indicating there could be hundreds more.

He said they were the remains of a massive ice floe which split from the Antarctic as sea and air temperatures rise due to global warming. [ Click Here To Read On ... ]

A Christmas Carol

Christmas Came Early This Year...

Disney's A Christmas Carol.

As you all should know the story ; it is story by
Charles Dickens about an old greedy, selfish,self-centred miser who must face the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come, The Ghosts remind him of the man he used to be.


Here is The More Detailed Synopsis :

Charles Dickens' timeless tale of an old miser who must face the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-to-Come, as they help bring kindness to his otherwise cold heart. The Ghosts remind him of the man he used to be, the hard truth of what the world is today, and what will happen if he does not strive to be a better man. Set around Christmas, the most joyous day of the year, Scrooge realizes the sharp contrast of his own personality. Jim Carrey plays four separate roles in this updated version of "A Christmas Carol." Carrey portrays Scrooge, as well as the three ghosts (Past, Present, and Yet-to-Come). Robert Zemeckis ("Back to the Future" trilogy) has his chance to dabble in telling a story through the windows of time, as he directs the long-awaited remake.

(Source: Cinema Online)

Info :

Release Date: 19 November 2009
Language: English
Running Time: 1 hour 36 minutes
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Jim Carrey, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, Robin Wright Penn.

WE WERE WARNED.

2012.
The Next Upcoming Epic, Heart pounding, Anticipating Movie Of The Year The World's Been Waiting For Is Finally Here!

Info>>

Release Date: 12 November 2009
Language: English
Director: Roland Emmerich
Cast: Amanda Peet, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Danny Glover, John Cusack

Synopsis:

Over the decades, many have prophesied that the world will end when the ancient Mayan calendar ceases on 21 December 2012. But before that occurs, the human race is bound to face natural disasters such as massive volcano eruptions, typhoons and other natural calamities. An academic researcher opens a portal into a parallel universe and makes contact with his double in order to prevent an apocalypse predicted by the ancient Mayans.


Official Trailer >>




Info From Wikipedia On The 2012 Apocalyptic Phenomenon.

The 2012 phenomenon is a range of beliefs and proposals positing that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur in the year 2012.[1][2] The forecast is based primarily on what is claimed to be the end-date of the Mayan Long Count calendar, which is presented as lasting 5,125 years and as terminating on December 21 or 23, 2012. Arguments supporting this dating are drawn from a mixture of amateur archaeoastronomy, alternative interpretations of mythology, numerological constructions, and alleged prophecies from extraterrestrial beings.

A New Age interpretation of this transition posits that, during this time, the planet and its inhabitants may undergo a positive physical or spiritual transformation, and that 2012 may mark the beginning of a new era.

A film called 2012, directed by Roland Emmerich, has employed a viral marketing campaign drawing on fears of an apocalypse in that year. This campaign, which masquerades as a public awareness video from the fictitious "Institute for Human Continuity", has been roundly criticised by scientists and sceptics for contributing to popular anxiety on the topic.

I am so excited and anticipated over this Blockbuster Movie! I think it is a MUST WATCH!!

World Wonders : The Greenwich Meridien.

Bookmark and Share
The Prime Meridian is the meridian (line of longitude) at which longitude is defined to be 0°.

The Prime Meridian and its opposite the 180th meridian (at 180° longitude), which the International Date Line generally follows, form a great circle that divides the Earth into the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.

Unlike the parallels of latitude, which are defined by the rotational axis of the Earth (thepoles being 90° and the equator 0°), the Prime Meridian is arbitrary. By international convention, the modern Prime Meridian passes through the Royal Observatory, Greenwich (at 51°28′38″N 0°00′00″E), in southeast London, United Kingdom, known as the International Meridian or Greenwich Meridian.

(
adapted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prime_Meridian )


Laser marking the Prime Meridian from the observatory.


- HISTORY OF THE ROYAL OBSERVATORY. -

T
he modern Greenwich Meridian, based at the
Royal Observatory, Greenwich, was established by Sir George Airy in 1851.

By 1884, over two-thirds of all ships and tonnage used it as the reference meridian on their maps. In October of that year, at the behest of
U.S. President Chester A. Arthur , 41 delegates from 25 nations met in Washington D.C. , USA, for the International Meridian Conference . This conference selected the Greenwich Meridian as the official Prime Meridian due to its popularity. However, France abstained from the vote and French maps continued to use the Paris Meridian for decades.

The Greenwich Meridian is now marked at night by a Laser beam emitted northwards from the observatory.( as above picture)


I went there last time... it was nice & quite interesting...

Here are a few pictures i search from the Internet...

History Of Halloween...

Bookmark and Share
Today Is Halloween...

BUT,

Have you ever thought about the origins & the history of how Halloween come about??

Halloween BonfireHalloween's origins date back to the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain(pronounced sow-in).

The Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago in the area that is now Ireland, the United Kingdom, and northern France, celebrated their new year on November 1. This day marked the end of summer and the harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night before the new year, the boundary between the worlds of the living and the dead became blurred. On the night of October 31, they celebrated Samhain, when it was believed that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. In addition to causing trouble and damaging crops, Celts thought that the presence of the otherworldly spirits made it easier for the Druids, or Celtic priests, to make predictions about the future. For a people entirely dependent on the volatile natural world, these prophecies were an important source of comfort and direction during the long, dark winter.

To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities.

During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other's fortunes. When the celebration was over, they re-lit their hearth fires, which they had extinguished earlier that evening, from the sacred bonfire to help protect them during the coming winter.

By A.D. 43, Romans had conquered the majority of Celtic territory. In the course of the four hundred years that they ruled the Celtic lands, two festivals of Roman origin were combined with the traditional Celtic celebration of Samhain.

The first was Feralia, a day in late October when the Romans traditionally commemorated the passing of the dead. The second was a day to honor Pomona, the Roman goddess of fruit and trees. The symbol of Pomona is the apple and the incorporation of this celebration into Samhain probably explains the tradition of "bobbing" for apples that is practiced today on Halloween.

By the 800s, the influence of Christianity had spread into Celtic lands. In the seventh century, Pope Boniface IV designated November 1 All Saints' Day, a time to honor saints and martyrs. It is widely believed today that the pope was attempting to replace the Celtic festival of the dead with a related, but church-sanctioned holiday. The celebration was also called All-hallows or All-hallowmas (from Middle English Alholowmesse meaning All Saints' Day) and the night before it, the night of Samhain, began to be called All-hallows Eve and, eventually, Halloween. Even later, in A.D. 1000, the church would make November 2 All Souls' Day, a day to honor the dead. It was celebrated similarly to Samhain, with big bonfires, parades, and dressing up in costumes as saints, angels, and devils. Together, the three celebrations, the eve of All Saints', All Saints', and All Souls', were called Hallowmas.

[ Haunting Historic Stories ]

On April 9, 1865, Robert E. Lee surrendered his Confederate forces to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Court House, Virginia.

Although the last Rebel troops would not surrender until May, the Civil War was effectively over. The Union had held. But, a weary President Abraham Lincoln would not live to see the triumphant march of the Army of the Potomac through the streets of Washington. Just five days later, on April 14, 1865, he was shot by a Southern sympathizer, John Wilkes Booth, in Ford's Theater. He died the next day.
