Enlarge (credit: flickr user: Richard ) There has been a lot of talk about the millions of people worldwide whose homes will be at the mercy of rising sea levels. Within the US, a 1.8-meter rise in the oceans by 2100 could displace as many as 13.1 million people. Worldwide, up to 180 million people could be at risk. There has been less talk about where exactly those people will go when they leave their homes. Research on climate migration has painted sea level rise as “primarily a coastal issue,” writes Mathew E. Hauer in Nature Climate Change this week. But the inland regions that absorb climate change migrants will need to have sufficient transport, housing, and infrastructure to absorb the migrants. To get a picture of what this might look like within the US, Hauer combined two different sets of data in a predictive model. This kind of model relies on a lot of different assumptions, but it provides a starting sketch of what the impact on inland areas might be. Read 11 remaining paragraphs | Comments

A Doctor Who fanatic has built two full-size Daleks - in his garden shed in Exeter. Sci-fi nut Ron Munns, 57, started the first about four years ago with a wooden frame around an old mobility scooter. He added a few Christmas decorations and electrical cables and painted it black then climbed inside to drive it back and forward. He followed that with a second improved red-coloured Dalek which is remotely controlled. Both models are the same height as in the timeless BBC drama - 5'8...

in today's industrialised farms. I gather she's au fait with politics as well, because she's painted her vision of Brexit. Yeah, isn't that amazing? (LAUGHTER) That's about right. So she kind of said let's do something to do with Brexit cos it's such big news here in South Africa and around the world. So the colours of the British flag were selected and off she went

By Anita Rao-Kashi The floor was slick with a thin sheet of water, made even more perilous by the gently swaying motion of the ship. There was just enough light to make out the dark shape of the hills in the distance silhouetted by a faint orange glow. Everything else in between seemed like a dark grey mass, seething and quivering like it had a life of its own. A brisk wind blew in, cold enough to set the teeth chattering. There was not a soul in sight and it was strangely silent. Then the sun rose from behind the hills in a flourish of deep orange and crimson. It painted the Mediterranean Sea a golden orange and from where I stood, on the deck of the Costa Fascinosa somewhere off the coast of France, the scene was jaw-dropping beautiful. As sunrises go, this was a new experiencewatching the sun rise over water while I was on it. It was almost minimalist — just the play of light on the water and sky.

If you aren't aware of Harry Matcalfe, he's the original founder of EVO magazine and one of the biggest car enthusiasts in the world. He also has one of the best car collections in the world, in terms of enthusiast classics rather than expensive supercars, and has a YouTube channel where he features some of his own cars and some others. In this latest video, he drives a 1989 BMW E30 M3 Roberto Ravaglia Edition similar to the E30 M3 he used to own back in 1989. The Roberto Ravaglia Edition was developed to honored the Touring Car driver of the same name to who won many Touring races in the E30 M3. The only real differences between the standard car and the Roberto Ravaglia Edition were the color scheme, which on this particular car was Nogaro Silver Metallic over a grey interior, a body-color painted valve cover on the engine and a signed number plate on the interior.

With people spending more than 90 percent of their time indoors, it makes sense that air quality matters. There are various factors in many people's homes working against this, however. From furnishings and upholstery to synthetic building materials and cleaning products, toxic compounds are being emitted all around you. There's also the concern of pollen, bacteria, and molds that need to be considered. And all of this, combined with poorly-ventilated spaces , such as a windows that have been painted shut in your apartment, it's incredibly important that you become aware of ways to combat all that junk being inhaled. Enter houseplants. Though you may only have them to better your green thumb, or decorate your home with a sense of nature — which are both great reasons — they're also extremely beneficial for improving air quality. According to NASA, plants' ability to purify air makes them nature’s life support system .

" On the opposite wall, rinky-dink drawings and paintings, plus a MAGA hat painted with an anthropomorphic cannabis plant that read " BAKE AMERICA ." A few dozen attendees, looking like extras from the cast of Girls , milled around the gallery, looking at the art with half-interested, wry smiles and Snapchatting amusing entries. A disco ball cast a spinning, distorting grid of white light on the walls. It was all very strange and imperviously ironic, as though Chapo Trap House had decided to put on an art show. The goal of shows like this is not to persuade, obviously. Talk of "civil engagement" and "nuance" and "start[ing] a conversation"—all words taken from the list above—is meaningless. Saying Make America Fellate Again" is a way of ending a discussion, not beginning one. Shows like this are agitprop, meant to express the anger of the artist and fan the flames of anger among the converted.

Only, in this, we see it in a different context, in the context of the state. Hari Raya is a great day in Islam and the preparations are done at home among our family members, (likewise) the installation is a big day for the country, and of course the preparations will be done at the government and state level, and a lot of meticulous preparation is requried. I always advise my colleagues at the Istana Negara and other officers involved, that whoever we are and whatever our job is, we are important people during each installation ceremony. Even if our task is to paint the walls of the Istana Negara, we also play an important role, because if it is not painted, it will spoil the view for guests attending the ceremony. Question: What are the procedures of the installation ceremony? What difference is there between the installation ceremony and the taking of oath ceremony held last December.

By Ivan The mysterious door of the ancient Padmanabhaswamy temple is protected by two massive cobras painted on it and has no bolts, latches or any other means of entry. It is said to house unimaginable wealth, and can only be entered by a high levelSADHUSfamiliar with the knowledge of chanting a ‘GARUDA MANTRA’. It is believed that door—which has no bolts, latches or any other means of entry—was sealed shut by sound waves from a secret chant lost in time. Hindu priests say that at present, there is no human capable of opening this door by executing these chants. It is a glorious ancient temple which rightfully holds the title as the wealthiest institution and place of worship of any kind in the recorded history of the world, with an estimated $22 billion worth of gold and jewels stored in underground vaults. Its gold-plated exterior shows only a small portion of its true glory.

It's almost impossible to not love the BMW 2002 . It's small, funky, old and still personifies all of the qualities that used to make BMW great. It's also one of the most heavily modified BMWs in the history of the brand, as it's cheap to buy and cheap to modify. Plus, it's capable of housing nearly any combination of engine and transmission in BMW's historic lineup. This one, though, is very cool and modified the right way and, if you have the money, you should buy it right now. If you're wondering about the strange UPS livery, it's a bit of a joke because the car was painted brown. If you look closely, it says Ludicrously Fast Delivery on the side. However, forget about the UPS livery because this is a seriously cool car. Under the hood lies a modified variant of the car's original M10 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine, with dual Weber carburetors, upgraded 292 cams, lightened connecting rods and Ross high-compression pistons.

I think it would be fair to say that Derby County boss Gary Rowett has probably learned more about his squad of players over the last two games than he did in his first four matches in charge. In particular, I think most of us agree that the 4-0 drubbing at Brentford on Good Friday was something he needed to see. In truth, Rowett's first few games as Rams boss had probably painted a bit of a false picture of how Derby's season had been panning out before his arrival. When a new manager comes...
