With all sorts of people and places waiting to be discovered, a simple map can be a great way to show us how we’re all connected. From which countries consume the most booze to those that have the most sex per week, and which country wields the most powerful passport, these glorious, beautiful and NSFW (some, not all) maps will teach you something you may not have known about the rather brilliant world we inhabit.

The love-seeking route usually started at a European capital, most commonly London and Amsterdam, and continued all the way through Germany, Austria, Hungary, Yugoslavia, Greece, and Turkey and from there to the Middle East. The final station was usually Nepal, with a prolonged stay in India, and many were going even farther to Thailand and Vietnam.

Over 100,000 Chinese millionaires have moved to Vancouver, sparking everything from a reality show to a property boom making housing unaffordable. Dateline asks if the millionaire migrants are a blessing or curse.

But, in what is perhaps a startling and peculiar contrast to mainstream Egyptian society, only non-married women, widows, and divorcees are allowed to live in the village: when a woman intends to get married, she must leave the village, as this is considered a “violation” to the village rules.

Eiler’s life as the only resident of a ghost town is truly singular. Each year, she hangs up a notice in Monowi’s only business (her bar) advertising mayoral elections, and then votes for herself. She’s required to produce a municipal road plan every year to secure state funding, and then raises about $500 worth of taxes from herself annually to keep the town’s three lampposts flickering and its water flowing.

“When I apply to the state for my liquor and tobacco licenses each year, they send them to the secretary of the village, which is me,” she explained. “So, I get them as the secretary, sign them as the clerk and give them to myself as the bar owner.”

The Temple of All Religions (Russian: Храм всех религий, Tatar: Барлык диннәр гыйбәдәтханәсе) or the Universal Temple (Russian: Вселенский храм) is an architectural complex in the Staroye Arakchino Microdistrict of Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia. Unical and one only in the world, it consists of several types of religious architecture including an Orthodox church, a mosque, and a synagogue, among others. It is currently under construction, having been started in 1992 by local artist and philanthropist Ildar Khanov.

Jedna od najpoznatijih ratnih fotografija progonila svog autora

Pištolj je već bio opalio u ispruženoj ruci vojnika, dok se zarobljenikovo lice zgrčilo od udara metka koji je ulazio u njegovu glavu. U levom uglu fotografije nalazi se vojnik koji je usled šoka napravio grimasu.

The map above is a stunning piece of work that shows the when each of the world’s international borders were first defined.

The world’s oldest border is Andorra’s 120km border with France and Spain which was fixed in a feudal charter signed on 8 September 1278.

The world’s youngest border segment is between South Sudan and Sudan, which was only decided in 2009, although it remains disputed.

But when were most of the world’s borders formed?

Granice današnje BiH uspostavljene ovako pre 500 godina? U to vreme kao nezavisna država nije postojala ni BiH ni Srbija. Pa kasnije ustanci, pa Austro-Ugarska, pa prva Jugoslavija, pa avnojske granice, pa ovi najnoviji ratovi..
Stvarno ne razumem kako su pravili ovu mapu.

Over time, more American influence operations have been mounted not secretly by the C.I.A. but openly by the State Department and its affiliates. For the 2000 election in Serbia, the United States funded a successful effort to defeat Slobodan Milosevic, the nationalist leader, providing political consultants and millions of stickers with the opposition’s clenched-fist symbol and “He’s finished” in Serbian, printed on 80 tons of adhesive paper and delivered by a Washington contractor.

Занимљиво шта све године 2018. открива врхунско светско новинарство... Тим Џуда је о овоме књигу написао ономад чини ми се... ал ето, Њујорк Тајмс се изненадио...

Иначе, бомбардовање и помагање побуњеника, дал се то сматра медлинг ин елекшнс? Да додамо још коју земљу...

Evo ti teksta koji se detaljno bavi time šta je rađeno. Tekst stoji na internetu od decembra 2000, tako da ne bih rekao da se NYT iznenadio. :smile: Može da se iznenadi samo neki neobavešteni čitalac.

The headline reads: "Italian Mafia In Slovakia; Its Tentacles Reach As Far As Politics".

It sits at the top of Jan Kuciak's final, unfinished article, published at midnight not just on his own news site - aktuality.sk - but, symbolically, by a number of others.

My mother tongue is Albanian, which in itself is hardly what you would call a popular language, but I also speak another one, far more obscure, which I call my father tongue.

We call it Ravëqki.

It sounds very much like a variant of southern Slavic languages with bits of Albanian and Turkish mixed in, and some original words which you can’t find anywhere else.

The Bike-Share Oversupply in China: Huge Piles of Abandoned and Broken Bicycles

Last year, bike sharing took off in China, with dozens of bike-share companies quickly flooding city streets with millions of brightly colored rental bicycles. However, the rapid growth vastly outpaced immediate demand and overwhelmed Chinese cities, where infrastructure and regulations were not prepared to handle a sudden flood of millions of shared bicycles.
