Best places to travel in April 2020

Despite an old adage about April showers, the fourth month of the year is really when life starts to return to much of the planet. The long winter has defrosted and left with it cherry blossoms, baseball, and plenty of end-of-winter parties, combining to make this one of the most enticing months to get out and see the world. But the best places to travel in April aren’t always the most obvious, where festivals you may never have heard of offer better times than well-worn destinations. So read...

Does Tristan da Cunha have the world's weirdest place names?

Tristan da Cunha is the world's most isolated inhabited island.It also has some of the world's weirdest place names.Is there a link? Maybe, if we stretch Darwin's theory from biology to topography. Thriving in isolation As Darwin predicted, islands have more species. That's because isolation can help preserve biodiversity. Could it be that place names also thrive on islands, and for the same reason? Tristan da Cunha certainly seems to offer excellent support for that theory. Located roughly h...

These are the Southern California film locations from Best Picture nominees and winners

If they gave out Oscars for best use of Southern California locations, we know who the big winner would be at this year’s Academy Awards. Because even if you haven’t seen “Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood,” writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the film industry’s company town circa 1969, you probably know it’s a non-stop travelogue through the town of the title and surrounding environs. But it’s not the only locally shot film with a nomination: There are three up for a best picture Academy ...

Favorite Drum Pendants

My parents are slowly remodeling their kitchen, they started by replacing their old florescent box with recessed cans and left two electrical boxes over the island for their pendants. My mom asked me what she should install there and I recommended two mid size drum pendants. While I was hunting online I loved so much of what I saw in the drum pendant category. I believe in adding circular features in spaces like kitchens that have a lot of sharp angles, which is why drum pendants are always a gr...

A Message to Garcia and Your Career

One of the most inspiring true stories I have ever read is A Message to Garcia, by Elbert Hubbard. It is a short essay that discusses the initiative of a soldier who is assigned a difficult mission of delivering a message and comes through, completing this very difficult task. In the essay, the soldier does not ask any questions, object to the assignment, nor request help; he simply gets the job done. The essay was first published in the March 1899 issue of Philistine magazine and soon thereafte...

The best nightlife in Athens

Often said to be the birthplace of democracy, Athens has earned a reputation as a must-see destination for the globally minded. Justifiably so, as visitors have the opportunity to both bathe in the crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea and catch a glimpse of the Parthenon perched upon the Acropolis. However, this vibrant city has another side that remains undiscovered by many visitors: It’s one hell of a party town. Nightlife makes up a sizable chunk of Greek culture, and as nights o...

15 Years Ago, the Most Important Episode of ‘Lost’ Encapsulated Everything That Made the Series Great

Fifteen years ago, a television show changed Network TV and serialized genre storytelling forever. Combining Survivor with Twin Peaks, Lost quickly became a global phenomenon. It made its large cast overnight superstars, and it inspired dozens of copycats with its use of flashbacks, and its character-first approach to the story that was still sprinkled with a fascinating mystery involving smoke monsters, polar bears and eventually time-travel. We’re still living in the shadow of Lost, and whe...

But it’s not the only Thai destination where you can marvel at white-sand beaches, decorative longtail boats, and striking island towers that seem to surge out of the water. You can savor these natural treasures in peace, away from the Phuket party scene, in the Thai province of Krabi. While most of the province of Krabi, which lies due east of Phuket...

Tens of thousands of goats munch Greek island into crisis

SAMOTHRAKI, Greece (AP) — With oak and chestnut forests, waterfalls and rugged coastline, Samothraki has a wild beauty and a remoteness that sets it apart from other Greek islands.
