If your brain is longing for more than simply adrenalin, then you'll find it here! Since there is a life beyond skydiving [at least sometimes] we like to show you some great non-skydiving sites - kinda "food for the brain".
Help Feed the World's Hungry With One Simple *CLICK*!!
The idea is simple: All you do is click a button, and somewhere in the world some hungry person - often a kid - gets a meal to eat AT NO COST TO YOU! The food is paid for by corporate sponsors. It may sound too good to be true, but we can assure you it is not. All you do is go to the site and click - It only takes a second each day to click the button!
This is how it works. Simply go to http://www.thehungersite.com once a day and click on the button located on the start page which orders the donation of a free serving of rice, wheat, maize or other staple food to the hungry. The daily corporate sponsor agrees to pay for all the donations ordered. No money comes out of your pocket. The Hunger Site believes that if just a tiny fraction of Internet users take a few seconds each day to make a free donation by clicking, they can feed hundreds of thousands of people. And they are doing that! Please check the statistics found within the web site to see what can be done. This is legitimate! It works! One click per day from each of us is all it takes. It's one small way we internet users can effect the world for GOOD! Won't you please consider visiting this site daily
and taking a second to click to aid in the fight against world hunger?
Some Hunger Facts:
About 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes. This is down from 35,000 ten years ago, and 41,000 twenty years ago. Three-fourths of the deaths are children under the age of five.
Today 10% of children in developing countries die before the age of five. This is down from 28% fifty years ago.
Many hunger experts believe that ultimately the best way to reduce hunger is through education. Educated people are best able to break out of the cycle of poverty that causes hunger.
|I am Woman
From good use of layout and color scheme to well- designed, original graphics. The 'I Am Woman' web site is simply beautiful. Extremely well constructed and designed, with stunning graphics, poetry, quotes and overall content, this site lends a very tasteful slant to all who are romantic of mind, or for those who may be searching for something special to enlighten their world.
|As in "My Secret Garden", the design and path of imagination are excellent and heartwarming and allow us to reflect and share the magic of being a woman and the beauty of love.|
|The Living Africa|
This great web site provides a 'spotlight' view of the continent of Africa. While aiming to present a 'complete' picture of a continent as large and diverse as Africa is not practical, the team has worked hard to provide a spotlight on as many aspects of the varied and diverse life in Africa and offers to add to our understanding of the continent.
The site is the result of around 8 months of dedicated collaboration work between three team members from different continents and was created as part of the international Thinkquest 98 contest - a worldwide competition that challenges students from around the world to collaborate and create educational resources for the internet community.|
|Photographs by Fred Stein
Surf through Fred Stein's Photography you'll probably think you've seen all the pictures before. And you'll be right--because they're some of the most popular and iconic photographs taken during this waning century. We could describe Stein's photography ourselves, but I suppose we'll defer to Herman Wouk, who claimed that Stein "recorded the central years of our century with a flood of pictorial impressions, and a multitude of
faces, famous and anonymous, which will illuminate the period forever." And to think he did all that in black and white. Visit and enjoy.
