See The Remains Of Pompeii

March 28th, 2012

When it comes to ancient places to visit, people think of Rome and Athens, but what about a place that is completely preserved in time, Pompeii, Italy. Visiting Pompeii is like taking a step back in time as even mundane life has been preserved through the ages. Go ahead and grab your families expedited passports, if you don’t have one be sure to fill out a US pass port application and go back in time to Ancient Pompeii.

Travel Requirements

Passports are required travel documents that anyone who is traveling internationally must show to customs officials. If you do not have a valid United States passport you will not be granted access into a foreign country for any reason. Conversely, if you are already overseas and have your passport stolen, you will not be allowed to reenter the United States of America until you procure a replacement passport. It is not hard to get a replacement passport, however, because of all the excellent online expedited United States passports agencies that can help you get a replacement.

Italy

There are many wonderful places to visit when you are in Italy. However, if you are looking to see something unique that offers an interesting take on Italian history, you should go and see the city of Pompeii. Pompeii was destroyed many years ago after the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. It is now known as a World Heritage Site. By going through the ruins of the city of Pompeii, scientists have been able to learn a lot about what life was like in ancient Italy. It is an amazing experience for tourists to have to go and see the ruins of the city of Pompeii. It will be sure to leave a lasting impression on you and whoever you bring.

Planning A Trip

When planning a trip to the forgotten city, be sure to map out destinations and make a to do list. There are so many sites to see and it can take days just to see the entirety that is Pompeii. Campania, Italy also offers Pompeii’s sister site, Herculaneum. There is also the National Museum, where there is a collection of some of the best preserved mosaics and other artifacts found at Pompeii. There is also the “Garden of the Fugitives” this is where several plaster casted victims are on display where they originally fell and were overtaken by ash and pumice. The plants within the garden have been reconstructed as well to represent the ancient growth patterns based on studies conducted on the plasters casts of the plant roots. And a walk outside the City Gates to the Villa of the Mysteries will surely add to your trip to Pompeii.

Conservation

Tourism is a good way to bring money into the site and allowing for more conservation efforts, however preserving and restoring such artifacts is time consuming and expensive. Although many foundations have funded Pompeii, only a third of sites that were open in the 60’s are open today.

VladTV’s Top 100 Tupac Songs of All Time (Blog) (@2pac)

March 27th, 2012

Before his untimely death in 1996, Tupac gave the world hundreds of songs. From the great tales of a man battling his inner demons, to the struggle of the Black man in America; even to futile party records. If it was worth discussing, Tupac rapped about.

Tupac didn’t use numerous flows or complicated rhyme schemes, but is still revered as one of the greatest to ever do it. His music is timeless because he presented it with passion and used his poetic lyricism to be someone everyone could relate to – the rebel, the revolutionary, the homie, the rider.

His image and intensity are unmatched and borrowed in some way by all rappers to come after him.

In honor of that, here are our picks for Tupac’s Top 100 songs:

Pickles In addition to Puking – Your Wonders Of Being Pregnant

March 26th, 2012

When it comes to pregnancy there are many different view points. Many women experience euphoric highs when they’re with child, while others just want the nutrient stealing baby out of them. No matter the view motherhood is achieved. Motherhood is a life changing aspiration for many women, however sometimes it may not be easily achieved. That is why programs like Pregnancy Miracle reviews are so helpful. It offers a homeopathic answer for infertility. While other programs such as PlanMyBaby offers the ability to naturally select the desired sex of your child. There are many different things that happen to the female body when a baby is growing and it’s helpful to understand each stage.

Pickles Anyone?

When it comes to stereotypes about pregnant chicks, the most common one is odd cravings. Almost any cinematic portrayal of pregnancy involves pickles and something that does not and should not ever coincide with pickles. Foods such as peanut butter, ice cream, chocolate, mustard, however the pickle craving is not a myth. Many women will crave pickles during their pregnancy as a way to get vital nutrients. After all that’s what the cravings are for. Red meat cravings indicate a need for iron. Bread cravings indicate a need for quick carbs. Pregnancy is an evolutionary event therefore the body has innate responses to deal with it. When it comes to a pregnant lady’s cravings, do not let her down, or you may not live to tell about it.

Round The Clock “Morning” sickness

You may find that you are craving strange foods, but the foods you once loved are unbearable. This is because just as your body craves certain foods to fill your system with the proper nutrients; it also knows what is unhealthy for you. An avid coffee drinker may dry heave at the smell of coffee, this is her body telling her that coffee is not good for her. A fish lover may hurl at the site of fish, this is the body’s way of saying stay away from fish as they can be dangerous to pregnant women. These are innate mechanisms that help keep us and our babies safe.

Rip Van Prego

Do you feel like you’ve been cast in the on screen version of Rip Van Winkle, as Rip Van Winkle? Don’t worry, it’s completely normal. Sleeping and resting are the most important things next to proper nutrition for pregnant gals. The body is working over time; there is way more blood pumping through your system as well as oxygen to keep your little one squirming. Rest as much as possible, as you will only wish you had done it more often once your little bundle of joy comes screaming out.

The Emotional Rollercoaster

Yes, crying at the drop of a hat is perfectly normal. The hormones surging through your system at this point are enough to throw off any Geiger counter of rationality. Anyone who tells you to relax or calm down can and should be sent to the gallows. You are growing a human being for crying out loud, what do these people expect of you.

By the end of your pregnancy you will barely remember a time when you weren’t pregnant. You will not remember what your feet look like or what it was like to not urinate every 12 seconds. But in the end you will have a beautiful baby. You may have thought that it was never possible, but with programs such as Pregnancy Miracle you were able to conceive the perfect mini-me, and perhaps you even got the girl or boy you dreamed of by following the guidelines of Plan My Baby review. It was a long road, but worth it.
