USA, the land of opportunity…

…how ironic to see that again a man got confined for a rather harmless
crime (DWI). The man got incarcerated into isolation confinement and

When constructions unwantedly stop

In this case, a concrete buffer has gone berzerk after someone has lost control

Wintertime, snow walls and records

While in Goms, Switzerland the snow already stacks up to 2.5 metres, one
