UK house prices rise at fastest pace since May 2010

The jet is supposed to be 3600 mbelow the oceana number that means little to us. As is beautifully illustrated inthisarticle in Australiasnews.com , that is about the depth of 10 Empire State buildings. To say that the oceans are vast is to state the obvious. It is something that we find hard to understand. It is only when a large jetliner disappears for 17 days in spite of best efforts by multiple governments that we can intuit the standing of our species in this bafflingly big planet that we are privileged to inhabit. It is only when we realize that a special submarine may be called to action, simply to spot the thing that we realize how deep our oceans are. Our hubristic parochial approach towards Planet Earth prevents us from fathoming that a jetliner can be swallowed by the ocean; that the human footprint doesnt reach everywhere; that there are still secrets that nature can hold, even when the whole world is searching. Our natural world is massive; we inhabit a small portion of it.

Travel As Therapy For Life’s Crossroads

After her dads death in 2010, Russo spent the first anniversary of his passing on a vacation that honored both his generous spirit and her adventurous streak. She hooked up with travel company Roadmonkey (roadmonkey.net), which plans and leads adventure philanthropy expeditions, to trek across glaciers in Patagonia and help rebuild a decaying coin laundry in the inner city of Buenos Aires. It was about celebration, trying to establish a new normal that had elements of what the past was, said Russo, 51. Travel can be a powerful guide at an emotional crossroads, whether youre grappling with a death, heartbreak, job loss or burnout. The benefits of seeking succor after a loss are not just psychological. A recent study found that the risk of heart attack or stroke doubles in the 30 days after a person loses his or her partner and remains 25 percent higher among the bereaved a year later. Connect with something bigger than self What kind of trip will help you heal depends on who you are and what youre going through. If a stressful situation has you ruminating in an exhausting loop, taking a trip that is eventful and challenging, such as a volunteer or adventure vacation, can help clear those thought patterns so you can approach the problem from a different perspective, said Art Markman, a psychology professor at the University of Texas and author of Smart Change (Perigee Trade). Such outward-looking, comfort-zone-busting trips give you an appreciation for novelty that is necessary for creative thinking, Markman said.

Loss of Flight 370 may have effect on travel to Malaysia

Students write on a placard carrying messages for the passengers of missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 at Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The Boeing 777, carrying 239 people, disappeared March 8, sparking a massive search across miles of open sea and theories that range from terrorism to alien abduction. The hotel booking site Trivago said it has seen a 22% drop in U.S. users searching for hotels in Malaysia in the 10 days after the plane disappeared, compared to the same period before the plane went missing. The site also reported an 18% drop in searches for Malaysian hotels from Australian users and a 22% drop in searches from New Zealand. But a senior Malaysian government official said the percentage of seats filled on flights to Malaysia, including Malaysia Airlines, “have not shown any drastic reduction.” “Some business travelers may have opted for alternative carriers, but large tour groups have gone [to Malaysia] as usual,” Malaysia tourism director general Mirza Mohammad Taiyab told reporters in India, where he was promoting tourism to his country. “Leisure and vacation tourism have also remained at the same levels.” India is Malaysia’s top source of tourism and Taiyab’s government is on a campaign to boost travel from India even further.

Is Air Travel Too Safe?

The post-9/11 airport security measures are more expensive and yield even less benefit . Compared to less than $100 per life year for mandatory seat belts and child restraints, or $7,000 per life year for airbags, air safety regulations were comparatively pricey, even 20 years ago. Juxtaposed with the costs health interventions in developing countries, the differences are stark. The cost per year of life saved for vaccination programs can be as low as $7 , and still 17 percentof Kenyan kids still dont get basic vaccines. Of course, if Kenya Airways wasnt spending the money putting defibrillators in its jets that fly to the U.S., it probably wouldnt take use the savings to fund a vaccination program.

ST. PATRICK’S DAY: Illuminating how the holiday Google Doodle comes to be

“The play is a great exploration of the African-American experience in the first half of the last century. Billie Holiday had a very Dickensian kind of upbringing. She was raped at 10, worked in a whorehouse, had terrible addiction issues and was sent to jail for a year cold turkey to get off drugs,” he explained. Price was intrigued by the dichotomy of the great star, who influenced so many people and was loved by so many, and who had a terrible life yet was able to survive through her music. “She loved to sing, and that was the thing that really grounded her,” he said.

Her quest for the authentic led her to the Book of Kells, arguably the worlds greatest collection of illuminated manuscripts. Created by early medieval Celtic monks, the book now sits in Dublin, beheld and upheld as a national treasure. Homs visual result is todays dazzling Doodle to mark St. Patricks Day a holiday that has come to symbolize so many things spiritually and spirits-ually around the globe, from the patron saint of Ireland hailing and converting Christians in the fifth century, to the patrons of brewpubs hoisting green ale more than 15 centuries later.
