Map Represents Waterways Across America




Beginning as an exercise in using open source information rather than to be a piece of art, Nelson Minar's All Rivers map is a detailed representation of every waterway in the bordering 48 United States. By using the National Hydrography Dataset, Minar outlined each river, stream, and creek he could find and related their Strahler number, which is a measure of their significance, onto the vector map he created. This interactive chart allows users to explore the different regions and examine the variety and types of waterways found in the area.

The unexpected result from this is a beautiful networking of blue veins across the country that shows even the most supposedly baron areas have many little waterways running throughout the land. It's both an informative and aesthetically pleasing collection of data. 05 more images after the break...

She used to tell his father’s story to him every-time they met expecting him to quit smoking. She realized that he has started avoiding her as his friends used to tease him whenever he used to smoke with them. Julie wanted to see him happy so she stopped objecting him :’( and just after 3 months of her relationship she realized that he is suffering from a lung disease called emphysema caused due to smoking.





He has fallen seriously ill and his treatment started, it continued for 2 years… many times his health became so worst that doctors also thought he will die !! But it was Julie’s love who kept him alive and recovering, all these 2 years she spent all her time with him in the hospital… she stopped going to college.. fought with her mother, friends & relatives… invested all her pocket money… and thus she defined love…?





The Boy Recovered And Has Quit Smoking !! He Has married Julie And now they both are living happily together !! He always feels guilty for not listening to his Love ?

The New Century Global Center, officially the largest freestanding building in the world, took three years to complete and will house offices, shopping malls, a Mediterranean village, a 14-screen IMAX Cineplex and an ice-skating rink large enough to hold international skating competitions.





The building is so large it is capable of housing the equivalent of 20 Sydney Opera Houses and is almost three times the size of the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.  At the centre of the building is a huge water park called Paradise Island. Around 400,000 square metres of the building are dedicated to shopping. 06 more images after the break...



The building sits directly opposite the Chengdu Contemporary Arts Centre, designed by British-Iraqi architect Zaha Hadid. The New Century Global Center is at the heart of a new planned area of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province in southwestern China.
