Amazing Pictures of Supermoon

It's been 20 years the moon was so close to the earth. 
Saturday March 19, 2011 it was 220,625 miles away, making it seem brighter and yellower and creating the eye-catching 'super moon' effect.
It was the first time since January 19, 1992, that the moon has been so close to the Earth. At its furthest, it can be 250,000 miles away.

Japan Earthquake and Tsunami 2011 - The Aftermath

Philippines | International

Some 3,000 people have now been confirmed dead since last week's earthquake and subsequent tsunami but officials believe the death toll could rise into the tens of thousands, with a further 2,000 bodies washing up on the shores of north-east Japan yesterday.

With millions of people without electricity, thousands missing and warnings of an imminent second earthquake, the task for Japanese authorities is too daunting to imagine.

Survivors are also struggling to find food and water as supplies run low. There have been major power outages since the double disaster, many planned to reserve resources.

Bodies wrapped in blue tarpaulins were laid on military stretchers and lined up for collection while panic-buying has begun in Japan amid fears of a second quake and growing concern about nuclear leaks.

House made of Glass Bottle

The glass bottle house built by Olga Queen, from  Novoshakhtinsk, Russia is a fine addition to our hefty collection of glass bottle architecture, which already includes various bottle houses and a unique bottle temple.

In an effort to build herself a house out of cheap and environment-friendly materials, Olga Queen spent six months collecting glass bottles, around her home town of Novoshakhtinsk. She managed to gather around 5,000 of them, which proved enough to build her very own little dream house. Using some wood for the framework and concrete to fix the bottles in place, she manged to finish construction and is now ready to move in.

Phileppe lost his arms and legs after a horrific incident 16 years ago. He had received a powerful electrical discharge of current while trying to fix a television antenna. Two years ago he was watching the documentary about the swimmers who were crossing the channel, when he decided that he was able to do the same. He started practicing 30 hours a week.
