No Carry-Ons For U.S. Bound Passengers From Canada

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

Since Christmas, it appears that flyers bound for the U.S. from Canada are going to have to pack a little lighter. In the wake of an attempted attack on Delta Airline Flight 253, Canada has tightened security in the nation’s airports, brought to my attention by an article in The Globe and Mail. After further […]

Check out these 11 amazing pictures from Spiegel of the newly-opened Burj, “Dubai’s newest symbol of megalomaniacal opulence [that] can be seen from Bedouin oases in the desert up to 100 kilometers away.” I like picture #4 which describes how the so-called “Chimney Effect” would work on the massive tower: The tower is so tall […]

This short video of the world’s second largest aquarium in the world — Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan (the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is the record holder, for now, until this beast in Dubai opens next year) — is strangely hypnotic given that it’s a single-shot of a bunch of marine life swimming by at […]

Not A Typical Day In Cambodia

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

I have yet to meet a person who is not fascinated with Cambodia. Even if the person has no desire to visit the country, they never stop asking about the people, the culture, the safety, or the temples.
