Google Map of Murder in New York – 2003-2005


This New York Times Google Map illustrates the Murders committed in New York between 2003 and 2005.

From the New York Times:

Murder in New York: Killers and Their Victims in the Five Boroughs

Between 2003 and 2005, 1,662 murders were committed in New York. Men and boys were responsible for 93 percent of the murders; their victims tended to be other men and boys; and in more than half the cases, the killer and victim knew each other.

In addition, an interesting, though uncommon, group of murders involved a handful of victims who died of injuries one or more years after being stabbed, shot, beaten or burned and were counted as murder victims in the year in which they died.

Underground Soviet Submarine Base



Here’s a great example of the fear and general mentality between the US and former USSR during the cold war. More pictures can be found here.

Until the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 Balaklava was one of the most secret towns in Russia. 10km south eas of Sevastopol on the Black Sea Coast, this small town was the home to a Nuclear Submarine Base.

Almost the entire population of Balaklava at the time worked at the Base, even family members could not visit the town of Balaklava without good reason and identification. The base remained operational after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 until 1993 when the decommissioning process started and the warheads and low yield torpedoes were removed. Then in 1996 the last Russian Submarine left the Base, and now you can go on Guided tours round the Cannel System, Base and small Museum, which is now housed in the old weapons stowage hangers deep inside the hillside.

Volkswagen’s Automated Garage



Volkswagen has a cool automobile storage facility in Wolfsburg, Germany – the multi-story parking garage can store the same number of car as a comparable facility in the US, but takes only 20% of the space. The automated retrieval system also allows the cars to be selected and delivered in less time and without the potential of being damaged by the attendant. Let’s just hope that the power doesn’t go out. Otherwise, both you and your vehicle are stuck.

Collecting your new car is an event in itself. “In a fully automated procedure, your new car is brought down to you from one of the 20-story Car Towers. Large signboards in the Customer Center show you when your turn has come. Then, you’re handed the keys, your picture is taken, the glass doors open and your brand-new car appears. You’re all set to go”.
