    Work Out Your Vacation

    Amie Hoff, president of Hoff Fitness and co-founder of the FitKit line of health improvement products, believes that planning and preparation are the secrets to vacation fitness success. She suggests packing exercise bands and tubes when you travel and encourages prospective travelers to research exercise-friendly venues ahead of time.

    And Hoff always hits the ground running as soon as she reaches her vacation destination. With running shoes and an inquisitive mind, she sets out to explore her new landscape. “[It’s] a great way to get in activity, shake off jet lag and do a little sightseeing,” she says. Practices like Hoff’s immediately turn your good intentions into a healthy reality. And in this case, you get an in-depth glimpse of an area you would have missed from the tour bus window.

    Does Unlimited Vacation Time Sound Like a Dream?

    WorldWide staffers received a late holiday gift this year when they returned to work and were given unlimited paid vacation time. The independent employee-owned network of 12 agencies is moving from the more traditional policy of accruing vacation days for personal time off, to flexible time off where there is now no limit.

    "In an entrepreneurial company, you want a results-driven culture of trust. You want to find the right people, and it's important to give them the right choices to blend work and life," said CEO Robert Vallee Jr., who explains there's no limit on the paid FTO other than "reasonableness." "Everybody's got a job to do, deadlines and targets are set, and you're still expected to meet them."

    How it's working at one agency

    Argonaut believes in giving employees the space to find things that inspire. Imagine a job where you're paid to go off and write a screenplay, take a family vacation in Malaysia, study improv, learn film editing or just walk the Santa Cruz boardwalk with your fiancé.

    That's a snapshot of some of the recent out-of-office time enjoyed by the 85 staffers at the agency, which also gives employees $500 a year to "enrich their creativity." "We're an industry hinged on creativity," said Margo Menapace, head of culture and talent. "You have to find the things that inspire you." Menapace added that the only catch is making sure the time off is appropriate with work schedules and deadlines: "We trust you. We know you're going to come in, get the work done and be responsible."

    Is this ancient Greek statue proof someone took a laptop

    Name:  11111_1.jpg

Size:  71.9 KB

    Legend has it that the Oracle of Delphi connected priests with super natural beings who passed along advanced technology and information.
    And conspiracy theorists claim that is how a modern-day laptop ended up in a Greek sculpture from 100 BC.
    But historians say the sculpture is just a deceased woman 'touching the lid of a shallow chest'.

    ‘I am not saying that this is depicting an ancient laptop computer,’ StillSpeakingOut, conspiracy theorists, said in a video he released on YouTube in 2014.
    ‘But when I look at the sculpture I can’t help but think about the Oracle of Delphi, which was supposed to allow the priests to connect with the gods to retrieve advanced information and various aspects.’

    The statue, ‘Grave Naiskos of an Enthroned Woman with an Attendant’ is on display at The J. Paul Getty Museum in Malibu, California. Those who don’t believe in aliens or time travel, say the object is a wax tablet that ancient Greeks used for writing with a stylus or pen

    Indian man could be first recorded human fatality due to a meteorite

    Indian officials say a meteorite struck the campus of a private engineering college on Saturday, killing one person. If scientists confirm the explosion was due to a meteorite, it would be the first recorded human fatality due to a falling space rock.

    According to local reports, a bus driver was killed on Saturday when a meteorite landed in the area where he was walking, damaging the window panes of nearby buses and buildings. Three other people were injured.

    Antarctica vacation - Winter vacations

    Winter vacations usually take the form of travel to warmer climates, basking on sunny beaches, drinking pina coladas and flaunting the good weather to folks back home.

    Not so with Bonnie and Mike Vance, of Mt. Pleasant.

    They had visited most continents, but not Antarctica or Asia. So, this year, along with some traveling friends from Wisconsin, it was off to Antarctica. FYI, winter in the Midwest is summer in Antarctica, but don’t plan on working on your tan. Highs are in the neighborhood of 45 degrees. But you can take your golf shoes if you like — the spikes might work as good ice grippers.

    Bonnie and Mike drove to St. Louis, hopped a flight to Miami, met up with their Wisconsin friends, then flew to Buenos Aires.

    They loved Buenos Aires, except for one thing. Bonnie had her purse stolen, losing credit cards, drivers license, cellphone, etc. Fortunately, her passport was back in the hotel safe. Mike, who is a lawyer and magistrate judge, found out first hand what it is like being on the other side of a police department, not speaking the language and dealing with a lot of misunderstandings. To top it off, one of Mike’s credit cards had been compromised.

    But everything was worked out, and they were on a cruise ship to Montevideo, Uruguay, then the Falkland Islands. After a two-hour jeep ride through terrible rocky terrain, they saw their first penguins. Rock hopper penguins are really cute. The parents hop up and down this 100 foot cliff to the water and back to bring food to their chicks. On the jeep ride back, one of the jeeps got stuck in a peat bog and had to be pulled out.

    Then it was back on the cruise ship and off to Antarctica. There is this Beaufort scale wind chart that goes from 0 to 12. They were at a nine, with 30 foot waves and 50 knot (57 mph) winds, making drunken sailors out of them all. Spray was hitting the observation-deck windows, ten stories up. Passengers were told to stay in their cabins. Mike got a little sea sick, but ginger in hot water straightened him right out.

    5 Most Epic Beaches, Oceans, and Islands to Photograph Now

    In honor of Earth Day (April 22), we’re shining the spotlight on the Four Elements: Wind, Water, Earth, and Fire! This month on ISO, you’ll find stories about the best 500px photographs that capture these four elements in a groundbreaking way—and the crop of talented photographers behind the shot. You can follow all our Four Elements posts on social media with the hashtag #PlanetPX. Let’s move on with our next Element—WATER!

    When it comes to spectacular seaside escapes and island living, I look to the swoon-worthy photos of 500px community member Sarah Lee for a surge of inspiration—and instant wanderlust. Hailing from Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, Sarah is obsessed with camera viewfinders, swim fins, and the sea. Her passion for underwater and surf photography was shaped by a childhood spent constantly playing in and around the ocean.

    Her goal as a photographer? To capture and enhance the beauty that surrounds her. I’ve been a long-time fan of her work now, so I caught up with her and asked her to share some of her favorite destinations in the world for underwater and ocean photography with me. Thanks to her recommendations, I have summer AND travel on the brain again.
