Ocean Dome - world's largest indoor water park !!..

Its the world's largest indoor water park, located at Miyazaki Japan, which is a part of the Sheraton Seagaia Resort, measures 300 meters in length and 100 meters in width, and is listed on the Guinness World Records. It opened in 1993, and visitor numbers peaked in 1995 at 1.25 million a year.

The Ocean Dome sported a fake flame-spitting volcano, artificial sand and the world's largest retractable roof, which provided a permanently blue sky even on a rainy day. The air temperature was always held at around 30 degrees celsius and the water at around 28.

Ocean Dome is bigger than many ocean liners - over 1,000 feet long - and has space for 13,500 tons of salt water and 10,000 people, without the mild inconvenience of real salt water, real crabs, real seaweed or fish.

It was pleasantly warm, but it felt faintly like a gymnasium - and they always remind me of exams. Also, the palm trees were too perfect to be real.

The fruit behind the counter turned out to be plastic, and the backdrop was painted with small clouds and a deep blue sky as the Pacific view outside probably should have been.

See.... how much of work can be done with the technology!!.. even a natural Ocean can be simulated. The Ocean Dome... well done engineers!!.

Grand Canyon Skywalk - Would U walk on this?

If you would like to work on the sky - as the name impels. Hell J just visit to "The Grand Canyon Skywalk", one of the most attractive tourist gathering place over the Colorado River on the edge of the Grand Canyon (Grand Canyon West) at Arizona, United states.

Commissioned and owned by the Hualapai Indian tribe, it was unveiled March 20, 2007, and opened to the general public on March 28, 2007.

Juts about 70 feet into the canyon, 4000 ft above Colorado River
Designed to hold 72 million pounds, withstand an 8.0 magnitude earthquake 50 miles away, and withstand winds in excess of 100 mph

Built with more than a million pounds of steel beams, and includes dampeners that minimize the structure's vibration

Can you find out, this kind of vision from any place where you been!!

Will accommodate 120 people comfortably (how comfortable would you be?)

took 9 000 000 pounds of steel to be strong enough to hold people

people have to put on special yellow slippers as to not smudge the glass floor,
Try to be there and enjoy the match of nature against the technology! Wot a design, well done Civil Engineers!!

Take care of your HEART !! ...

Be kind to your heart. It's the only one you have. Heart disease is the number one cause of death in both male and female. Risk factors like family history, gender and age can't be changed but fortunately, most risk factors for heart disease are preventable.

There are 5 major risk factors for heart disease: high cholesterol, cigarette smoking, high blood pressure, obesity and lack of physical activity. The good news is they can all be managed. Here are a few tips to get yourself started:

o CUT BACK ON THE BUTTER - As a rule, a 1% reduction in cholesterol equals a 2% reduction in your risk for a heart attack. Remember, cholesterol only comes from 2 sources: our bodies and the foods we eat. So take it easy on the greasy stuff.

o PUT THAT CIGARETTE OUT, FOR GOOD - Smokers are twice as likely to suffer heart attacks as nonsmokers, and smoking is the greatest risk factor for sudden cardiac death.

o WATCH YOUR BLOOD PRESSURE - If it's 140/90 or above, it's too high. Talk to your doctor about controlling your pressure with diet and/or medication. High blood pressure puts you at an increased risk for smoke and heart attack.

o LOSE JUST A LITTLE, TO START - Even modest weight reductions - 5% to 10% of your body weight will improve overall health. Shoot for 1/2 or 2 pound loss per week, through a combination of healthy eating, calorie reduction and physical activity.

o LET'S GET PHYSICAL - If you don't work out, you're doubling your risk of heart attack. The best excercises are those that condition your heart and lungs for 30-60 minutes three or four times a week.

See.. How amazing your Body is!!!......

Jus to check this out......
The Organs of your body have their sensory touches at the bottom of your foot, if you massage these points you will find relief from aches and pains as you can see the heart is on the left foot.

  • Typically they are shown as points and arrows to show which organ it connects to.
  • It is indeed correct since the nerves connected to these organs terminate here.
  • This is covered in great details in Acupressure studies or textbooks.
  • God created our body so well that he thought of even this. He made us walk
  • So that we will always be pressing these pressure points and thus keeping these organs activated at all times.

So, keep walking...
