Most Beautiful Front Doors Around the World….!!!

Generally doors are sadly boring, but they don’t need to be; they might as well work as thoughtful designs of gateways between worlds or between diverse elements of our existences.

The front door is normally the sole component of a building’s outer part that everyone will interact most regularly with, so if you wish a building to look awesome, there’s likely no nicer way to do it than by designing a gorgeous door.

Look Where This Aircraft Stopped … !!!

A PLANE has skidded off a snowy runway at New York’s LaGuardia Airport​, crashing through a seawall fence​ before stopping just metres from the water’s edge.

None of the 125 passengers and five crew members on board was seriously hurt, but six people suffered minor injuries, sources told The New York Post.

Fuel was leaking from the MD-88 jet and emergency responders were spraying foam to prevent a potential fire after the wing was shorn off.

Sources said Delta Flight 1086 from Atlanta was landing during a snowstorm when it slid off the side of Runway 13 and crashed into a Flushing Bay seawall around 11am Thursday (3am Friday AEDT.

Delta Airlines said in a statement: “Customers deplaned via aircraft slides and have moved to the terminal on buses. Our priority is ensuring our customers and crew members are safe.

“Delta will work with all authorities and stakeholders to look into what happened in this incident.”

Passenger Sam Stern, 64, of Sarasota, Florida, was seated with his wife in an emergency-exit row and had to yank out the window so everyone could escape.

“We came in for landing, the plane hit the ground. As it started to apply the brakes, it started skidding. It didn’t spin around or anything,” he said. “It ended up hitting the embankment. The wing broke off.”

“I’m fine, I hurt my back. Everybody was shaken up, but everyone remained calm and was very caring about everybody else,” he added.

A first responder on the ground was also heard asking if the controller was in touch with the Flight 1086 pilot.

“I’m calling up … no response,” the controller said.

“OK, sir, he is leaking fuel on the left side of his aircraft … heavily. His wing is ruptured,” the responder said.

The incident marked Delta’s first mishap since December 5, 2013, when a 767 returned to land at Madrid-Barajas Airport in Spain after a tire failure at takeoff, according to the Aviation Safety Network.

Fireworks Around the World Light Up the Night on New Year Eve …

Australia prides itself on having some of the best fireworks in the world, but Dubai was aiming to break a Guniness world record with its spectacular display.

Dubai had an impressive fireworks display on the world’s tallest tower, the Burj Khalifa.

The Gulf Arab emirate of Dubai was aiming to break the world record for the largest LED-illuminated facade with its spectacular display centred on the world’s tallest building.

Who has the best fireworks in the world? 

Australia, have you seen what Dubai did?

Some 70,000 LED panels around the 2,722-foot Burj Khalifa flashed coloured lights and projected images of the country’s leaders when clocks there struck midnight as a massive fireworks display erupted.

The celebration draws throngs of thousands of spectators every New Year’s Eve.

Emaar Properties said a team from Guinness World Records monitored the preparations. Last year, Dubai won the title for the world’s largest firework display, according to Guinness.

Dubai’s world record attempt comes as countries including the UK, Italy, France, Germany, Russia, Turkey, Greece, New Zealand, Asia and the Ivory Coast among others welcomed the New Year in spectacular style.

New York joined the celebrations with a bang — the combination of the Times Square Ball Drop, an electrifying fireworks display and Taylor Swift’s rendition of “Shake it Off” resulted in a spectacular beginning of 2015.

Meet Tao Porchon Lynch … 96 Years Old Yoga Teacher !!!

 

A 96-year-old woman , who has been teaching yoga for 56 years, has claimed that she “likes to dance and do yoga”.

The teacher Tao Porchon Lynch, who currently lives in Westchester County, New York, keeps a positive attitude and said that nothing was impossible, since one could do whatever one wanted to, the Daily Express reported.

Lynch, who was born at the end of the First World War in 1918 and was forbidden from practicing yoga through her early years due to male dominance, added that she loved to dance, to do the Argentinian tango, to do the Paso Doble, all Latin dancing, and all smooth waltzes and fox trot.

Brenda Boulas, a 70-year-old retired nurse, who is a student of the oldest yoga teacher, said that Lynch, who stays active despite having a full hip replacement and had recently suffering a broken wrist, was the “epitome of strength”
