Russian architect Alexander Asadov is fighting global warming with innovative building designs. His latest concept is a floating Aerohotel, pictured above. This floating island features a 200-meter hub containing hotel rooms or residences, cafes, winter gardens, and restaurants. The Aerohotel is held aloft by a system of supports and three main legs anchored to the bottom of the site, and unlike man-made islands with tons of gravel fill, this design preserves the aquatic ecosystem below. Asadov's studio states that the construction costs and environmental impact of his design are significantly lower than gravel works projects. This design can be installed in any body of water, and the plan includes docks for boats and a landing strip for zeppelins. Because if you're cool enough to live in a floating island, you're cool enough to travel.

Want to know where the world’s best beaches are? There are a few ways you can find out. One is to go to a source like the famous Dr. Beach he’s one guy and he lists the world’s best beaches every year. The only problem is that he focuses solely on the USA and he likes to shift the list around to give all the beaches a fair chance. By the way, Dr. Beach’s favorite for 2012? Coronado Beach near San Diego. As for me my favorite beach in the world is without a doubt Kalama’s Beach in Kailua on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Not quite as beautiful as the nearby Lanikai Beach but with better waves, Kalamas isn’t as crowded as Kailua Beach Park and has wide expanses of sand. Perfect for body surfing, beautiful views of the Mokulua Islands and a safe and friendly locals beach on an island crowded with tourists. I wanted to know the very favorite beaches of people who travel all over the world to out of the way places and who don’t necessarily have a commercial reason to list one over the other. So I turned, once again, to the travel bloggers of the world. I wasn’t the only one to pick a Hawaiian Beach as my favorite. Stacy Kuyf of One Travels Far picked La’aloa Beach Park (Magic Sands) on the Big Island of Hawaii (and a few other incredible Big Island beaches.) A couple of mainland American beaches made it to the list as well. Bret Love of Green Global Travel chose Sanibel Island Beach in Florida. Dr. Jesse Voights of Wandering Educators preferred the Great Lakes beaches of Michigan’s Sunset Coast.
After Leonardo DiCaprio filmed The Beach here tourism skyrocketed as people flocked to catch a glimpse of its rare beauty.

Growing up in the small, seacoast area of New Hampshire, I always knew that I wanted to have a fall wedding in my hometown. Even though Tyler and I currently live right outside of New York City, I am a New England girl at heart and there is something so special about NH in the fall. Over the years, Tyler and I have spent a lot of time in NH together and he has grown to love the area as much as I do. We decided to get married at St. Andrew’s by the Sea, a beautiful, historic stone chapel right by the ocean, and host our reception at Abenaqui Country Club. Both locations are less than two miles from my childhood home so it was amazing to celebrate our wedding day in places that hold such fond, personal memories. Overall, we wanted our wedding to capture the warm, relaxed feeling of fall in NH, but also feel elegant and chic. The inspiration for our wedding actually originated from a shoe! We found this gorgeous Christian Louboutin shoe in a classic tartan (which we later learned was called Stewart Black) and thought the plaid was the perfect way to incorporate the bold, rich colors and textures of fall fashion into our wedding theme. Using the plaid was also a fun way to acknowledge my heritage, as my great grandparents were from Scotland. We incorporated the tartan in many different ways, from the formal invitations to the table linens and place cards. Tyler and his groomsmen wore tartan suspenders that he ordered from Scotland. We also used the tartan on the escort cards, which were mini picnic baskets filled with our favorite candy and topped with a bundle of plaid fabric. Our wedding planner, Amy, did an amazing job of using the plaid fabric and color palette in the reception décor. She recommended creating plaid overlays and runners and pairing them with bold red linens and napkins, black wine goblets, red tealight holders and striking black chairs. As a nod to the rustic NH setting, we integrated birch accents with birch wrapped vases for the floral centerpieces, birch napkin rings and a birch cakestand. Because we wanted a, romantic, candlelit atmosphere, the tent lighting was a warm amber color and with patterns that resembled fall foliage and branches. It was important to us that the wedding look and feel beautiful, but we also wanted it to be very personal. My Dad was in the Marine Corps and my parents used his sword to cut their wedding cake, so it was really important to me to carry on this tradition. Because my grandparents have passed away, we also found ways to acknowledge them on our special day. I wore my grandmother’s fur bolero jacket and I also wore my mom’s wedding garter, which she updated by adding my grandmother’s rose pin and a touch of plaid fabric in the shape of a rose. We even had my grandparents’ original wedding cake topper on display at the cupcake table. For our guestbook, we decided to forgo the traditional book and ask our guests to sign a wooden bench that we had engraved with our initials and wedding date. Finally, the biggest hit of the reception was definitely the photo booth. All of our guests walked away with their own fun photo prints from the night, and Tyler and I ended up with even more photos of our family and friends to complement the pictures taken by our wonderful wedding photographer.

Q No 1: What is computer ?Ans:
Q No 2: Parts of a Computer ?
If you use a desktop computer, you might already know that there isn't any single part called the "computer." A computer is really a system of many parts working together. The physical parts, which you can see and touch, are collectively called hardware. (Software, on the other hand, refers to the instructions, or programs, that tell the hardware what to do.)
The illustration below shows the most common hardware in a desktop computer system. Your system may look a little different, but it probably has most of these parts. A laptop computer has similar parts but combines them into a single notebook-sized package.
