Auroras sometimes called the northern and southern (polar) lights or aurorae are natural beautiful light displays in the sky, usually observed at night, particularly in the polar regions. They typically occur in the ionosphere. The Cree people call this phenomenon the “Dance of the Spirits. Its southern counterpart, the aurora australis or the southern polar lights, has similar properties, but is only visible from high southern latitudes in Antarctica, South America, or Australasia.
I like elephants; they are cute, huge and funny looking. They are a big part of many cultures and they are used as metaphors all around the world. They are associated with wisdom. For many people around the globe, elephants hold some sort of religious values. Of course, not all of us live close enough to elephants to know a lot about them. In fact, most of us have hardly seen them once, twice or even never. I will list down ten interesting facts about elephants that you probably didn’t know before. It is said how these poor creatures have had hunters on their tails ever since their tusks became valuable.
10. ELEPHANT SPECIES
Until 2010, only two different species of elephants were recognized. There are new reports now that say that there are at least three different species of these creatures; The Asian Elephant (Alphas Maximus), the African Bush Elephant (Loxodonta Africana) and the African Forest Elephant (Loxodonta Cyclones). The Asian elephant is the smallest and therefore smaller tusks. The African Forest Elephant has straighter tusks while the Bush Elephant has beautifully curved tusks.

Cemeteries are interesting. On the one hand, these grounds are the final resting place for the dead. Yet, while death may be the primary purpose of these areas, it is the living who find value and significance in them. Cemeteries have an allure for many, far more than I would have thought prior to doing the research for this article. For some, these hallow grounds are a place of remembrance and reflection. For others, the attraction may be the historical implications, or the popularity of those who are buried there. Whatever the case, many cemeteries around the world have become distinguished over the years. These hallowed grounds stand timeless, and present their charges with continued dignity and honor for all those who continue to pay homage to their lives. With this in mind, here are the Top 10 Historical Cemeteries.
What could be more appropriate than beginning our list with a burial site that is shrouded in mystery and intrigue, from the annals of antiquity? An initial response to this selection may be thought-invoking, as most will not equate historical tombs with a “cemetery”. Yet that is exactly what this historic area is – a burial place for the dead – in this case, the royal dead. Known in its time as (inhale) The Great and Majestic Necropolis of the Millions of Years of the Pharaoh, Life, Strength, Health in The West of Thebes (phew), the Valley of Kings, located in Egypt, is the final resting place of pharaohs and other powerful persons, dating as far back as 16th century BC.
The area is mostly a desert, and has been subject to the ravages of time (and grave robbers). As such, many of the harmonizing and tranquil aspects common to most cemeteries won’t be found here, and the scenery is as majestic as only windswept sand and rocks can be. Yet the weight of history is palatable here. One can imagine the majesty that this necropolis projected at its zenith. The tombs that have been discovered thus far (63) have been a treasure trove of archaeological and anthropological information, regarding life thousands of years past. The tombs themselves have preserved not only scientific points of interest, but the culture of a people. Perhaps its most well-known occupant is King/Pharaoh Tutankhamen.

The people of the United States spoke with their votes yesterday in local, state, and national races and on numerous ballot questions. President Obama was reelected after a hard-fought campaign with challenger Mitt Romney, and the Republicans and Democrats remained in control of their respective majorities in the House of Representatives and Senate. Here's a look at the voting process throughout Tuesday and into the early morning hours Wednesday of the celebrations and disappointment as the results came in. -- Lloyd Young
