Do you know these places? Would a place that has cliffs like these merit being declared a national park? Thankfully, these rocky precipices are in a national park already. But these are not the iconic features that end up in the photo collections [...]

La sequenza sismica APPARE in netto calo per intensità e numero di scosse, come pare ovvio.Dico appare perché, altrettanto ovviamente, non si può escludere una recrudescenza degli eventi, come in effetti è successo ieri sera: dalle 11.00 di ieri [...]

Even starting off as far south as Ushuaia, it’s a long way to Antarctica – almost 1000 km of open water. We got a peak of the chart below whilst touring the bridge of the Corinthian – they have computer … Continue reading [...]

Living with Epilepsy
