8 Largest Pyramids in the World


Modern and ancient pyramids come in many forms and sizes. To determine which is the largest pyramid one could compare their heights for example. At a height of 260 meters (85 feet), the Transamerica Pyramid would certainly be a serious candidate.
Many big pyramids however come with a very large base but are not very tall. A better measure of size therefore is probably the volume of a pyramid. The volume of a pyramid can be calculated by the following formula: Length_of_base * Width_of_base * Height * 1/3. This is 54 x 54 x 260 x 1/3 = 252,720 m³ for the Transamerica Pyramid, which isn’t even close enough to be included in our list of biggest pyramids.

So with this formula it shouldn’t be too difficult to find the largest pyramids in the world. Unfortunately it isn’t that easy. Many pyramids are not true smooth sided pyramids but stepped pyramids. Another problem is that some of the largest pyramids on earth are still not completely excavated.
8La Danta, El Mirador (0,9 million m³)
La Danta, El Mirador
El Mirador was a major Mayan city that flourished from about the 6th century BC, reaching a peak population of perhaps more than 8,000 people between the 3rd BC and the 1st century AD. After a hiatus of a few centuries further constructions were undertaken until the city was abandonment at the end of the 9th century. The ruins were rediscovered in 1926 but received little attention due to its remote location deep in the jungle of northern Guatemala. Today the site remains largely covered by tropical jungle and the two largest structures at El Mirador, the “El Tigre” complex and the “La Danta” complex, give the impression of two large hills.

7 Top Spa Retreats around the World


There is nothing that can compare to the absolute decadence of relaxing in one of the top spa hotels or day spas and indulging in a pampering regimen of soaks, wraps, massages and facials. Here is a list of arguably the top spa on each continent – so no matter where you find yourself, a day of blissful indulgence or a quick pick-me-up is just around the corner.

7Stoke Park Spa
Stoke Park Spa
Consistently rated as one of Europe’s finest spas and always in the top ten in the UK, Stoke Park is a luxury hotel set in nearly 400 acres of parkland and historic gardens. With so many pampering treatments on offer, as well as excellent facilities, this is certainly one of the top spa hotels UK wide. Relax in the five meter tropical atrium, be soothed in the hydro-seat Jacuzzi or unwind in the beautiful steam rooms constructed from Italian marble.

Jennifer Lopez vs. Brooklyn Decker — Fashion Faceoff


Neon is the perfect trend for getting a gal noticed on the red carpet, and Michael Kors' long-sleeve hot pink gown certainly fits the bill! But who would have guessed that two of Hollywood's hottest bodies would choose the exact same so-bright-you've-gotta-wear-shades garment just 10 months apart? You know what that means: It's time for us to decide ... who wore it best?

Top 10 Long Hairstyles

Long hairstyles reign supreme when it comes to looking sexy. Here are the long hairstyles that are making us green with envy.

Jennifer Lawrence


The Hunger Games' Jennifer Lawrence needed those long locks for her character's signature side braid. But we personally love when this up-and-comer goes blonde with soft, wispy waves. Long hair tends to have more breakage, so to keep stragglers in place, try John Freida Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer ($5.99, target.com).

Syrian refugees


 Syrians by the thousands are fleeing the violence in their home country and seeking refuge in neighboring countries. Turkey this week is said to be considering a buffer zone in Syria to secure its own national security as well as aid fleeing civilians. Turkey is already sheltering some 17,000 of those who have fled. The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Tuesday that nearly 10,000 people have been killed in the yearlong conflict in Syria. A cease-fire agreement accepted by Syria Tuesday that was drawn up by United Nations envoy Kofi Annan was met with skepticism, and fighting continued between rebels and President Bashar Assad’s soldiers. -- Lloyd Young (32 photos total)

Syrian refugees are seen through a barbed wire as they arrive at border between Syria and Turkey, near Reyhanli, Hatay province, on March 27. Syrian President Bashar Assad's crackdown on dissent, which monitors say has seen more than 9,100 people killed since March 2011, triggered an influx of refugees on the Turkish border as officials say the current number exceeds 17,000.

Signs of Spring: 2012 Photos Around The World


Seemingly strange weather patterns continue to break high and low temperature records. The same patterns spawned an early tornado season in the midwestern United States and brought late season snowstorms to the west. Record snow falls and frigid temperatures characterized a particularly difficult winter across Europe with many deaths attributed to the conditions. Signs of Spring for the Northern Hemisphere (which began officially with the Vernal Equinox - March 20 - when the hours of day are approximately equal to the hours of night) like trees blossoming and flowers blooming, the shedding of winter coats and the desire of anyone -who has spent an all too long winter season indoors - to venture outside to soak up the sun. -- Paula Nelson (45 photos total)

World Water Day 2012 Photos Around The World


World Water Day is observed on March 22 every year. The day to recognize the importance of earth's most precious natural resource was proposed 20 years ago at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. While we often take water for granted, many cannot. And water plays a role in almost everything we do. We drink it, wash in it, play in it, generate power with it, irrigate crops with it, travel and transport goods on it, fight fires with it, and worship with it. Gathered here are images of water from the last year in all its uses, in scarcity and in abundance. -- Lane Turner (48 photos total)

Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race 2012


The 40th Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race came to an end earlier this week in Nome, Alaska. Dallas Seavey, 25, bested both his father and his grandfather with his team of nine dogs, becoming the youngest musher ever to win the nearly 1,000-mile race across the Alaskan wilderness. His winnings included $50,000 and a new truck. Gathered here are images from the Iditarod and other events from around the globe.(29 photos total)

My life is pretty cool, I've got to say. I've been blessed with amazing opportunities but with a million responsibilities comes lack of sleep, getting off my workout routine and for me, a mountain of stress and weight gain. I'm sure a lot of folks can relate. When life gets unmanageable, sometimes the most important things — like our health — are what we sacrifice.

2012 Oscars Red Carpet Report Card Photos

Angelina Jolie
After Angelina Jolie flashed that leg on the red carpet, no one was even paying attention to what the “In the Land of Blood and Honey” director was actually wearing! The actress' black Atelier Versace gown featured a thigh-slit, which the daring Jolie worked every chance she got throughout the night. At the end of her stems? Salvatore Ferragamo peep-toe pumps.

Most Memorable Movie Swimsuits

Spring break is here. It's time to slip into that teeny-weenie yellow polka-dotted bikini and hit the sand and waves. In honor of that, we've put together this groovy gallery of some of the most memorable movie swimsuits. Get the sun block and check it out.

Take a Closer Look

At first it may look like there is some pretty nasty stuff going on in these pictures like limbs and body parts being twisted and facing wrong direction and some pics may even appear nsfwish, but if you take a closer look you will see that it is all due to weird shooting angle and that these are completely innocent photos. Enjoy!

Miley Cyrus Hot Young Lady


I don’t know what the hell I’m supposed to think about Miley Cyrus anymore, on the one hand she’s the hillbillied offspring of one of the worst one hit wonders of all time, and on the other hand she kind of makes weird things happen in my genitalia region. I’m so confused. It’s like asking a stripper to marry you, at the time it seems like a good idea, and then someone named Omar tells you that a kilo of cocaine is on your registrar. No thank you.

Jennifer Lopez
Neon has been all the rage since last fall, and it doesn't seem like the trend will be slowing down any time soon, thanks to stylish stars like Jennifer Lopez who adore bold looks. Speaking of J.Lo, the multi-talented mom-of-two did her part to keep the fad in fashion by donning a highlighter-hued Michael Kors frock and bright pink pumps for a recent appearance on a Brazilian talk show. What do you make of the former Fly Girl's getup? Luminous or...

Kelly Brook See Through And Hot Booty


Here is mu favorite busty British hot babe Kelly Brook out in London the other day in the seemingly boring outfit, but actually she is wearing some see through top and skinny tight pants. Sure it’s not the greatest see through top you’ll ever see, but I’m getting a hint of cleavage under there so it counts and in case that’s not enough for you, here are some great pictures of her spectacular booty while climbing the stairs. I would take a delicious bite out of that thing if she’d let me. Amazing!

In Hillary’s Footsteps: Kirsten Gillibrand



U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a petite woman with pale-blue eyes and perfectly coiffed blonde hair, is sitting at a long table in a huge barn on a farm in upstate New York. There are great sacks of onions piled up to the ceiling on pallets and a few pieces of hulking equipment used during the harvest. It’s a safe bet that this barn has been spiffed up for the senator’s visit, a very special occasion for the family that lives here. It is one of those intoxicating August afternoons—cool and dry with a gentle breeze and big puffy white clouds set against a brilliant blue sky so perfect it seems fake.

Katy Perry Rocks The Echo Awards In Berlin


I have always really admired the fact that Katy Perry isn't afraid to be weird. Katy definitely marches to the beat of her own drum and I love that about her. Although weird has sort of become the new normal in the entertainment industry thanks to people like Katy, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj and others
I can't seem to think of at the moment, Katy still manages to stand out. While the actual pictures of her performance on the Echo Awards in Berlin show her outfit was a little out there, her arrival pictures on the red carpet are really the ones that appeal to me. She takes a fairly normal looking dress and pairs it with crazy blue hair but somehow, it all comes out looking kind of natural - or as natural as blue hair can look anyway.

The Hottest Girls In Sports

We respect these women for their incredible performance on the playing field. But we lust after them for their incredible bodies and beautiful faces. That's totally OK, right?

The mixture of sporting excellence and physical pulchritude is a rare and beautiful gift, and gifts should be celebrated. In this feature, we'll shine the light of appreciation on eleven of the most gorgeous lady athletes from all over the world of sport. You could learn something from these ladies.

Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova

Tennis is a great place for hot ladies to compete, and the courts have seen a number of foxy females dominate. One of the most famous is Russian Maria Sharapova. Sharapova made her professional breakthrough at 17, beating Serena Williams at Wimbledon, and she's continued to perform at the top of the scene. When she's not whacking balls at insane speeds, Sharapova has been signed to model for a number of fashion houses, most notably Cole Haan. She even got a feature in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. Oh, and she's also the world's highest-paid femae athlete.

Miss Canada finalist disqualified, used to be a man (8 Photos)


Vancouver’s Jenna Talackova was everything Miss Universe Canada was looking for when she was selected among 65 finalists for the 2012 competition, blonde, 6' 1", and smart.
But the 23-year-old has been disqualified from the competition because she was born a male. Jenna had sexual reassignment surgery when she was 19.
Pageant organizers released a statement,
“She did not meet the requirements to compete despite having stated otherwise on her entry form,”
We do, however, respect her goals, determination and wish her the best,” it concludes, without specifying what requirements she did not meet."
Apparently the rules of the pageant actually specify that you must be, "a natural born female" (has this happened before??)
I have to admit, if there was a Miss Canada Transgender she's got my vote. Chivers, would you?

Top 10 Most Misunderstood Lines in Literary History


There’s no better way to sound smart than by dropping a perfectly timed quote from some well-respected literature.  It shows that you’re both well-read and possess the stunning intellect to memorize whole chunks of books in the off chance that you might need it at some point (and barely anyone ever considers the implication that you just have way too much free time).
The problem is that a lot of the most famous quotes need context to be fully understood and, if you use them without knowing what they really mean, you might accidentally be saying something pretty dumb.  For example…

10.  Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

roadnottaken
Famous Quote: “I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
The United States’ most famous poet’s most famous poem is a timeless ode to the American ideals of “individuality” and “forging your own path.”  It’s one of those poems that’s so famous, even people who hate poetry can quote it.  These are the reasons it appears on The Academy of American Poets’ list of top poems for college graduation.
Except aside from that last part, everything we just said isn’t true.  Frost is actually using an old technique known as the “unreliable narrator,” and he isn’t even being all that subtle about it: in spite of the famous quote’s insistence that one road is “less traveled by,” the second stanza of the poem clarifies that both roads are “worn… really about the same.”  Oh, and also, Frost himself admitted that he was actually mocking the idea that single decisions would change your life, and specifically making fun of a friend of his who had a tendency to over-think things that really weren’t that big a deal.
So what you thought was life-affirming was really just another poet/hipster condescendingly saying “you think you’re an individual, when really you’re just a cog in the machine, man!

This is an interesting look at celebrities photos before and after photoshop. These can give you a feel of what it takes for a person to look beautiful at all times. No wonder we, ordinary people, are left with a great deal of pressure of looking our best at all times, a high goal that is impossible to reach. Impossible even for our God-like role-models.

Steal A Look On Another Nicky And Paris Hilton's Crazy Party


Nicky is not much in the foreground but she is there. Both girls were once worryingly thin, and then for a time dabbled in becoming a bodybuilder. However Paris Hilton finally appears to be happy and healthy. The heiress showed off her bikini body as she watched her rumoured boyfriend DJ Afrojack play a set for the crowd
by the pool of her Miami hotel. The 31-year-old wore a tribal print yellow, black and white maxi dress that was so low-cut it displayed the entirety of her bikini top. However not content with the revealing frock, Paris fashioned it into a skirt so her entire upper body was exposed, save for the parts her jungle print triangle bikini top covered. Paris showed off her slim and toned frame as she posed poolside and looked regal as fans snapped her while she stood on a chair to get a better view of her DJ pal. The socialite was draped in various accessories including a beaded headband, several bangles and a pair of oversized sunglasses. She wore her hair in pigtails for the pool party and was seen clutching her iPhone as she danced with the crowd. She later switched her designer shades for a pair that had Afrojack’s name on along with a picture of the DJ.

Kim Kardashian Knows What We Are Looking For…


I didn’t find anything super interesting today so I thought I’d dig into my stash of posts that didn’t quite make it to post last month… While judging on Project Runway Kim’s ass was forcing her skirt to explode giving us a glimpse into the up-skirt holy land that is Kim K’s punani.
Unfortunately Kim knows exactly where we are looking and did her best to thwart our eyes.

Kim And Kourtney Kardashian Returning From A Business Meeting


Here are Kim And Kourtney Kardashian Returning From A Business Meeting. Just yesterday Kim shrugged off being the victim of a flour-bomb attack joking with her make-up artist that she needed more powder. And so today it seems fitting that Kim Kardashian stepped out with a full face of make-up on. The 31-year-old reality star stepped out with a copious amount of beauty products on her face.
Kim, who today branded her attacker 'a bully' was joined by her pregnant sister Kourtney as she headed to a meeting today. As well several layers of foundation, which left her looking a little orange, Kim was sporting smokey eyes, blush on her cheeks and a slick of pink lipstick across her mouth. The single star had her dark hair pulled into a high pony tail and she wore a flirty pink dress for the occasion, teaming the ensemble with high heels.
