I don't have my notes with me so I can't give you my source for the $28 billion. So let's look at a couple of other ratios. According to the website of ITER (the Experimental Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor), if all the manufacturing is done in Europe the estimated cost of building ITER, supported by the United States, the European Union, India, Japan, China, Russia, South Korea, has been estimated at approximately $14.4 billion (at April 2016 exchange rates.) That's around a third the estimated cost of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico ($42 billion)." (SOURCE: http://www.iter.org/faq#Do_we_really_know_how_much_ITER_will_cost) "Based on the European evaluation, we can estimate the cost of ITER construction for the seven members at approximately EUR 13 billion, if all the manufacturing is done in Europe." ) Or, looking at it another way, the cost of building the National Ignition Facility -- a key research project into nuclear fusion -- was less that 10% of the cost of the BP oil spill.

Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in Southwest Germany
 
02:13
Schwarzwald, or in english The Black Forest is located in the southwest corner of Germany in the German federal-state of Baden-Württemberg. The Black Forest is a mountainous terrain at about 200-1500 meters above sea level, the highest point being the Feldberg at 1493 m. This ancient forest is famous for its legends and the black fir trees that dot the landscape. While not particularly high, the mountains offer a wonderful place to go hiking or mountain biking with well-marked trails. Maps available from the tourist offices. There are a few skiing resorts as well offering average but crowded conditions. The region is famous for its cuckoo clocks, watchmaking, skiing and tourism. There is a large high-tech light engineering industry in the region stemming from the gold-mining and watchmaking days. Almost all tourists are from Germany and Switzerland; the region's tourist industry is therefore not well equipped to deal with guests who don't speak German. The most important destination in the Schwarzwald is called Titisee, which is a medium-sized lake with associated tourist village and hotels, with very nice views and generally very relaxed and healthy activities. From here it is a short journey to Lake Constance and the city of Konstanz, or to see the Rhein Waterfall at Neuhausen in Switzerland. Accommodations in the main tourist areas may be cheaper than many of the quaint smaller towns and villages. For a nice hut at a reasonable price, look for a privately-operated Gasthaus, which can be found in villages throughout the area. There are many pleasant surprises waiting, often with excellent home-cooked food and special service, often provided by the family living there for many generations. QUESTIONS?

The Deepest Place On Earth: Mariana Trench
 
44:55
The Mariana Trench or Marianas Trench is the deepest part of the world's oceans. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands. The trench is about 2,550 kilometres (1,580 mi) long but has an average width of only 69 kilometres (43 mi). It reaches a maximum-known depth of 10.911 km (10,911 ± 40 m) or 6.831 mi (36,069 ± 131 ft) at the Challenger Deep, a small slot-shaped valley in its floor, at its southern end, although some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11.03 kilometres (6.85 mi). At the bottom of the trench the water column above exerts a pressure of 1,086 bars (15,750 psi), over 1000 times the standard atmospheric pressure at sea level. At this pressure the density of water is increased by 4.96%, making 95 litres of water under the pressure of the Challenger Deep contain the same mass as 100 litres at the surface. The temperature at the bottom is 1 to 4 °C. The trench is not the part of the seafloor closest to the center of the Earth. This is because the Earth is not a perfect sphere: its radius is about 25 kilometres (16 mi) less at the poles than at the equator. As a result, parts of the Arctic Ocean seabed are at least 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) closer to the Earth's center than the Challenger Deep seafloor. Xenophyophores have been found in the trench by Scripps Institution of Oceanography researchers at a record depth of 10.6 km (6.6 mi) below the sea surface. On 17 March 2013, researchers reported data that suggested microbial life forms thrive within the trench. . JOIN QUIZGROUP PARTNER PROGRAM: http://join.quizgroup.com/ .

Chur is the capital of the Swiss canton of Graubünden and lies in the northern part of the canton. Chur is situated at the right shore of the Rhine River and is known as the oldest town of Switzerland. Chur is situated at a height of 1,949 ft (594 m) above sea-level, on the right bank of the Plessur torrent, just as it issues from the Schanfigg valley, and about a mile above its junction with the Rhine, almost entirely surrounded by the Alps, overshadowed by the Mittenberg (east) and Pizokel (south), hills that guard the entrance to the deep-cut Schanfigg valley.

Spelga Dam - Co.Down - N.Ireland
 
04:49
Spelga Reservoir is a reservoir in the townland of Spelga (Irish: Speilgeach) in the Mourne Mountains of County Down, Northern Ireland. It was formed by the Spelga Dam and sits at over 1,200 ft (370 m) above sea level. The reservoir and dam were built as part of a project that had origins in the idea of supplying water to Belfast, in 1894. The Spelga Reservoir itself was developed between 1953 and 1957. While the reservoir has not been stocked with fish for some years, it is home to wild trout. The Portadown and Banbridge areas receive their water supply from it. Building started in 1953, and ran into problems. As they poured the foundations on the bedrock that the dam was sinking, it was found that it was as much as 40 meters to the actual bedrock. A more comprehensive ground investigation showed they started building on large boulders. The Dam was designed by the Belfast engineering firm of R. Ferguson and S. McIlveen and construction

srisailam dam review
 
03:27
The Srisailam Dam is a dam constructed across the Krishna River at Srisailam in the Kurnool district in the state of Andhra Pradesh in India and is the 3rd largest capacity hydroelectric project in the country. The dam was constructed in a deep gorge in the Nallamala Hills in Kurnool district, 300 m (980 ft) above sea level. It is 512 m (1,680 ft) long, 269.748 m (885.00 ft) high and has 12 radial crest gates. It has a reservoir of 800 km2 (310 sq mi). The left bank power station houses 6 × 150 MW reversible Francis-pump turbines (for pumped-storage) and the right bank contains 7 × 110 MW Francis-turbine generators. """Project history""" The Srisailam project began in 1960, initially as a power project, across the Krishna, near Srisailam in Kurnool District, Andhra Pradesh. After several delays, the main dam was finally completed twenty years later in 1981. In the meantime the project was converted into a multipurpose facility with a generating capacity of 770 MW by its second stage which was expected to be completed in 1987. The dam is to provide water for an estimated 2,000 km2 (770 sq mi) with its catchment area of 206,040 km2 (79,552 sq mi) and water spread of 1,595 km2 (616 sq mi). Under the right branch canal 790 km2 (310 sq mi) in Kurnool and Kadapa districts will have assured irrigation. From the initial modest estimate of Rs.384.7 million for a power project the total cost of the multipurpose project was estimated to cross Rs.10 billion in its enlarged form. The 269.748 m (885 ft) high and 512 m (1,680 ft) wide dam has alone cost Rs.4.04 billion together with the installation of four generating sets of 110 MW each. The right branch canal is estimated to cost Rs.4.49 billion and the initial investment of Rs.1.4 billion has been provided by the World Bank. The projected cost-benefit ratio of the project has been worked out at 1:1.91 at 10% interest on capital outlay.[citation needed]. On 2 October 2009, Srisailam dam experienced a record inflow which threatened the dam.[3] Project has an estimated capacity to hold 178.74 thousand million cubic feet.

Several shots show two Italian girls wearing 200-year-old costumes from a museum; they walk about a pretty mountaintop garden and look rather embarrassed. Various shots of Club Meditterane, a holiday camp at Cefalu. Instead of chalets they have grass rush huts, and the visitors all eat outside at communal tables with large umbrellas. M/Ss of people eating spaghetti at a table; one couple are in swimming gear. Another couple recline on the scrubby grass by the huts. A girl in a patterned bikini rubs sun lotion into her chest while lying on a wall by the sea. People are gathered around a grass-hut bar under it's sunshade; it looks very hot.

Jet Breaking Sound Barrier over Water F-14 Tomcat Fighter Plane in Supersonic Low Flyby US Navy Ship
 
00:10
Sonic Boom Jet Fighter Fly By F-14 Tomcat Plane in Supersonic Flight over a US Navy Ship and the Crew watching the Aircraft Breaking the Sound Barrier. The relevant Wikipedia article provides a good summary description of the F-14 -- "The Grumman F-14 Tomcat is a supersonic, twin-engine, two-seat, variable-sweep wing fighter aircraft. The Tomcat was developed for the United States Navy's Naval Fighter Experimental (VFX) program following the collapse of the F-111B project. The F-14 was the first of the American teen-series fighters which were designed incorporating the experience of air combat against MiG fighters during the Vietnam War. The F-14 first flew in December 1970 and made its first deployment in 1974 with the U.S. Navy aboard USS Enterprise (CVN-65), replacing the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II. The F-14 served as the U.S. Navy's primary maritime air superiority fighter, fleet defense interceptor and tactical reconnaissance platform. In the 1990s, it added the Low Altitude Navigation and Targeting Infrared for Night (LANTIRN) pod system and began performing precision ground-attack missions. The Tomcat was retired from the U.S. Navy's active fleet on 22 September 2006, having been supplanted by the Boeing F/A-18E/F Super Hornet". Wikipedia also has a good definition of Supersonic speed -- "A rate of travel of an object that exceeds the speed of sound (Mach 1). For objects traveling in dry air of a temperature of 20 °C (68 °F) at sea level, this speed is approximately 343 m/s, 1,125 ft/s, 768 mph, 667 knots, or 1,235 km/h". The earliest recorded flight that broke the sound barrier took place on October 14, 1947 in an American research project, with the experimental Bell X-1 research rocket plane -- the pilot was Charles "Chuck" Yeager.

Holland's Barriers to The Sea
 
44:21
The Delta Works in the Netherlands (Holland) is the largest flood protection project in the world. This project consists of a number of surge barriers, for examples: 1- The Oosterscheldekering is the largest of the 13 ambitious Delta Works series of dams and storm surge barriers and it is the largest surge barrier in the world, 9 kilometres (5.6 mi) long. The dam is based on 65 concrete pillars with 62 steel doors, each 42 metres wide. It is designed to protect the Netherlands from flooding from the North Sea. 2- The Maeslantkering is a storm barrier with two movable arms; when the arms are open the waterway remains an important shipping route however when the arms close a protective storm barrier is formed for the city of Rotterdam. Closing the arms of the barrier is a completely automated process done without human intervention. The Great Wall of Louisiana https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xOWEbq6WRM

Mt. Aso is the largest active volcano in Japan, and is among the largest in the world. It stands in Aso Kujū National Park in Kumamoto Prefecture, on the island of Kyūshū. Its peak is 1592 m above sea level. Aso has one of the largest calderas in the world (25 km north-south and 18 km east-west) The caldera has a circumference of around 120 km! I woke up at 3am and drove from Saga to Aso. I flew over the Mt. Naka crater at about 6am and the wind was quite strong, 12mph and 20mph gust at times. To my surprise the steam coming from the crater was hot enough to melt the propellers on my Phantom. I went through a set of 6 props just to get shots down inside the crater area. After my flight I actually walked down into the crater area and filmed some lava, this was very dangerous and the bottom of my shoes actually melted. Later I flew all over the Aso area, winds were high most the time so the video often shakes. I visited Daikanbo and flew from there and climbed Mt. Kijimadake to get some high aerial shots.

India: Part 3 - Munnar (By Opher Yisraeli)
 
03:59
The third leg of our trip took us from Kochi to the mountain city of Munnar which is surrounded by tea and cardamom plantations. The region in and around Munnar varies in height from 1,500 m (4,921 ft) to 2,695 m (8,842 ft) above mean sea level. It is pronounced "Moon-aar" short for "moonu aar" meaning 3 rivers. Three rivers - Madupetti, Nallathanni and Periavaru which flow through this town, but join some distance away from Munnar. Munnar is famous for its tea plantations, many of them started by the British. The "Kannan Devan" brand of Tea from the Tata is cultivated and processed here. The strobilanthus ("neelakurinji" in Malayalam, the local language), a blue flower which blooms only every 12 years, is found in this region. It bloomed last in December 2006. Munnar also has the highest peak in South India, Anamudi, at 2,695 m. Music by: Demented Sound Mafia

Indira point lighthouse submerged in Greater Nicobar Island tsunami
 
04:35
Indira point lighthouse situated on Andaman & Nicobar Islands. One can see extensive tsunami damage along the coast here, with vegetation, trees and the lighthouse itself submerged in the Andaman Sea. Our crew conducted a post-tsunami recce of the damaged areas. The tsunami which resulted from the Indian Ocean earthquake of 2004 inundated much of the area. This partly damaged the lighthouse, which subsided 4.25 m. As a result of this subsidence, the coast retreated and the sea moved permanently inland. The lighthouse has since been repaired. The base of the lighthouse was 5 m above sea level when constructed in 1972. After the tsunami, the sea rose and the base was less than a metre above the sea level, showing over 4 meters of sea floor subsidence. It has been observed that the sea is slowly retreating back to its original position and the subsidence has decreased as the ocean floor slowly bounces back partially, a similar drop and rise due to crustal decompression and re compression was observed in the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on Honshu. Indira point was mostly submerged. The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are a group of islands at the juncture of the Bay of Bengal and Andaman Sea, and are a Union Territory of India. The territory is 150 km (93 mi) north of Aceh in Indonesia and separated from Thailand and Burma by the Andaman Sea. It comprises two island groups, the Andaman Islands and the Nicobar Islands, separated by the 10°N parallel, with the Andamans to the north of this latitude, and the Nicobars to the south. The Andaman Sea lies to the east and the Bay of Bengal to the west. The territory's capital is the Andamanese town of Port Blair. The total land area of the territory is approximately 8,073 km2 (3,117 sq mi). The capital of Nicobar Islands is Car Nicobar. The islands host the Andaman and Nicobar Command, the only tri-service geographical command of the Indian Armed Forces.

DN SEA: How to level without losing your fingers
 
08:04
I managed to reach level 64 on my assassin. the level cap is 70. yeah i know, not quite there yet. i just wanted to chronicle one of the milestones he has reached so far. I understand there are faster more efficient ways to level (like grinding with a party) but I chose to run alone whenever I can. The key is not to waste time with unnecessary drama. how do i do it then? well.. i'm a sucker for a good story. i'm a big nerd and i'm not ashamed or even sorry for it. i like reading. what does this have to do with leveling?! alright already.. here's how i level up alone. i go to town.. talk to the horribly voiced npcs in town and take all the quests i can get. (up to 40)i read them all then run the dungeons that has the mosts quests in them. i make sure to do all the objectives to complete the quests in 1 run. i run all the instances available in an area for example at level 10-24 in calderock village, i usually go out and run all the dungeons in cristal stream before porting back to town. once i get back to town, i talk to the horribly voiced npcs again to get my quest rewards. at those lower levels i usually gain a level or 2 before i get to head back to town. there are times when i don't really have to run each and every instance in the area to gain a level. although it does get trickier at higher levels. but my methods never changed as i gained levels, sure it took a bit longer to level compared to when i was only level 10-24. from 24-40 felt the longest for me. the dungeons have become longer than what they used to be when i was running calderock village dungeons. st. haven has also been.. rebuilt so its bigger than before but there's still warp npcs placed all over town conveniently close to quest giving npcs. by the time i reached 40, i've pretty much gotten used to the gameplay again. i can now run dungeons in significantly higher difficulty levels for more exp. the technique is simple lvl 40-60.. same old methods. i can't say i didn't have things that helped speed up my progress though.. first of all.. i got into a guild as soon as i could for the bonus exp. i also bought the entire guild armor costume set to increase my exp gain.. and remember having all those level 60 alts in this account? well.. having them unlocked the combined skill that raises exp gained when equipped.. so of course i equipped that along with another skill that increases my atk. (the faster i kill, the faster i gain exp.) last but not the least, i also have the hero document on me. normally it is a cash shop item that costs 2800CC for 1 whole day for 100% extra exp, but the one on me is a 50% increase that i got for free from the level up reward box. the best part about leveling solo is.. the load time, the instance loads faster when you're not waiting for other party members to load the instance. and of course the long torment of having to stand near the town gates and screaming(typing) LFP/LFG repeatedly hoping you get in a good group.. or LFM hoping the people you pick aren't lazy ass good for nothing party members. having been able to avoid all that drama made my leveling a bit more fun, less tedious and stressful than how it would have been if i chose to grind with a team or have someone boost me (with or without payment) Disclaimer: i'm not a NO LIFE who plays dragon nest 24/7.. i work a 9hour shift and play 2 hours when i get home from work before i go to sleep by 4AM, sometimes i get to squeeze in 30 minutes -1 hr before going to work but that seldom happens. i do get to play for up to 6 hours during my day off. only i get to login to my character and i do not ask other people to log in to my account and level my characters for me. ========================== Info: Server: Westwood IGN: TaranZhu Guild: Haka Twitter: https://twitter.com/katrasxza Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/katrasxza (under construction) ========================== Powered by: Fullscreen Inc.

It is New Zealand's most active cone volcano, and has been built up by continuous volcanic activity over the past 150,000 years.[1] The nearest mainland towns are Whakatane and Tauranga. The island is roughly circular, about 2 km (1.2 mi) in diameter, and rises to a height of 321 m (1,053 ft) above sea level. However this is only the peak of a much larger submarine mountain, which rises up to 1,600 m (5,249 ft) above the nearby seafloor, making this volcanic structure the largest in New Zealand. Sulphur mining was attempted but was abandoned in 1914 after a lahar killed all 10 workers. The main activities on the island now are guided tours and scientific research. The full Māori name for the island is 'Te Puia o Whakaari', meaning 'The Dramatic Volcano.' It was named 'White Island' by Captain Cook on October 1, 1769 because it always appeared to be in a cloud of white steam. Although Cook went close to the island he failed to notice that it was a volcano. Its official name is Whakaari/White Island although it is best known as White Island. Attempts were made in the mid-1880s, 1898--1901 and 1913-1914 to mine sulphur from White Island but the last of these came to a halt in September 1914, when part of the western crater rim collapsed, creating a lahar which killed all 10 workers.[6] They disappeared without trace, and only a camp cat survived. He was found some days afterwards by the resupply ship, and dubbed "Peter the Great".[7][8] Some years later in 1923 mining was again attempted, but learning from the 1914 disaster, the miners built their huts on a flat part of the island near a gannet colony. Each day they would lower their boat into the sea from a gantry, and row around to the mining factory wharf in Crater Bay. If the sea was rough they had to clamber around the rocks on a very narrow track on the crater's edge. Before the days of antibiotics, sulphur was used in medicines as an antibacterial agent, in the making of match heads, and for sterilising wine corks. The miner's diggings were handled in small rail trucks to the crushing and bagging process in the factory built on the island. Unfortunately, there was not enough sulphur at Whakaari and so the ground-up rock was used as a component of agricultural fertiliser. Eventually the mining ended in the 1930s because of the poor mineral content in the fertiliser. The remains of the buildings can still be seen, much corroded by the sulphuric gases.

Sa Pa, a Picturesque Town in Northwestern Vietnam
 
02:27
Sa Pa is a picturesque town near the Chinese border in northwestern Vietnam. At 1,650 m above sea level in Vietnam's remote northwest mountains, Sa Pa is known for both its fine, rugged scenery and its cultural diversity. Sa Pa and its surrounding region is host to many hill tribes, as well as rice terraces, lush vegetation, and Fansipan, the highest peak in Indochina. Sa Pa was first inhabited by people we know nothing about. They left in the entire valley hundreds of petroglyphs, mostly composed of lines, which experts think date from the 15th century and represent local cadastres. Then came the highland minorities of the Hmong and Yao. The town is one of the main market ones in the area, where several ethnic minority groups live. Most of the ethnic minority people work their land on sloping terraces since the vast majority of the land is mountainous. Their staple foods are rice and corn. The geographical location of the area makes it a truly unique place for many interesting plants and animals, allowing it to support many inhabitants. Many very rare or even endemic species have been recorded in the region. The scenery of the Sa Pa region in large part reflects the relationship between the minority people and nature. This is seen especially in the paddy fields carpeting the rolling lower slopes of the Hoang Lien Mountains. The impressive physical landscape which underlies this has resulted from the work of the elements over thousands of years, wearing away the underlying rock. As a result of a recent surge in popularity, Sa Pa has become a tourist hotspot where money is the new drug of choice. Don't be put off by the rush, your explorations of the surrounding countryside will be worth the trouble. QUESTIONS? We would like to hear from you!

Dimensional time portal twisting and running around a dystopian government leads bad gamer Tobuscus to earn the series title 'Toby Sucks at Gaming.' There are several funny moments in this playthrough, none of which display any level of videogame talent on TobyGames' part, so if you like laughing AT people, this may be the playthrough for you, your friends, and your loved ones. Enjoy. Oh, and check out the other fun playthroughs on Toby Games like Minecraft, Rocket League, Destiny, and Happy Wheels!

Greetings from the Dea Sea
 
02:27
These are the sights from the cliffs of Qumran. We hiked to the top in order to repel down half a dozen dried-up waterfalls - some larger than 10-story buildings - which lead to the one surface of the Earth that is closest to its core. At 1,400 feet below sea level, the Dead Sea is lowest place in the world where you still can breathe normally. (And oddly enough, if you close your eyes while floating on its salty waters, it feels a little like how I imagine flying ought to feel.) The topographical ups and downs in Israel are incredible. Mount Hermon is the high point. It may be only half a fourteen-er, but the whole country - except for the Negev down south - seems to be hill after hill, and in such a small area. I've never done so much hiking (or plain walking for that matter) in my life... and I'm from Colorado!

The City and County of Denver is the largest city and capital of the U.S. state of Colorado. Denver is nicknamed the Mile-High City because its official elevation is exactly one mile or 5,280 feet (1,609.3 m) above sea level, making it one of the highest major cities in the United States. http://www.michellelopez.org/p/denver-colorado.html
