    Talking travel with Yahoo! and exploring historic San Antonio and Orlando

    in Travel

    Today World Footprints will talk travel; specifically international travel and study abroad programs with Yahoo! Travel's Paula Froelich.  Our conversation follows an invitation to the White House to participate in a travel summit focused on encouraging more travel, voluntourism and study-abroad opportunities for Americans.  Of course, as Yahoo! Travels editori-in-chief, Paula will share some of her recent travels, top destination picks and travel philosophy.


    Then, take a stroll through history as we explore San Antonio, Texas.  The city of San Antonio is one of the oldest European settlements in Texas and, for decades, its largest city.  Thousands of years before the Spanish settlements began the city was populated by various cultures of indigenous people.  Today, San Antonio is investing energy in preserving its cultural heritage and ecosystem for future generations to come.  We will discover the development initiatives taking place in San Antonio and get an update on the city's possible inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage list.


    Finally, everyone knows Orlando, Florida as the theme park capital of the world.  However, we will discover another side of Orlando as we explore the Maitland Arts Center--the city's first National Historic Landmark.

    The Climate Science Behind New England’s Historic Blizzard

    in Politics Progressive

    "Another epic blizzard is bearing down on New England. There is a “big part” played by “human-induced climate change,” especially warming-fueled ocean temperatures, according to Dr. Kevin Trenberth, former head of the Climate Analysis Section at the National Center for Atmospheric Research.


    I asked Dr. Trenberth to comment on the role climate change has on this latest storm, which is forecast to set records. He explained:


    The number 1 cause of this is that it is winter. In winter it is cold over the continent. But it is warm over the oceans and the contrast between the cold continent and the warm Gulf Stream and surrounding waters is increasing. At present sea surface temperatures are more the 2F above normal over huge expanses (1000 miles) off the east coast and water vapor in the atmosphere is about 10% higher as a result. About half of this can be attributed to climate change."   http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2015/01/26/3615330/blizzards-climate-scientists/

    in Entertainment

    Milling About visits The Veranda Historic Bed & Breakfast Inn in Senoia, Georgia where tourists and vacationers alike flock to the home of The Walking Dead, now shooting season five. In fact the inn is situated right around the corner from where Woodbury once stood, so owner and innkeepers Rick and Laura Reynolds welcome people from all over the world with their warm southern hospitality, who for no other reason are coming to see the fictitous town. The inn which dates back to 1906 when it was originally The Holbrook Hotel has retained it's original features; Georgian pine floors, ornate ceilings with elegant chandliers, and 11 fireplaces throughout the nine guest bedrooms. There is a wonderful wrap around porch where you can sit back on a rocking chair or a porch swing and take in the sights.


    Laura tells Robin some of those sights have included a Norman Reedus (Daryl) sighting flying past the inn, or guests treated to a showdown at 2 AM of walkers vs. Rick and company on the street right in front of the inn. And several cast members have stayed at The Veranda including Laurie Holden (Andrea) and Chandler Riggs (Carl); room three is unofficially named 'The Andrea.' Laura says, 'we've had a great influx of people. And they're so excited when there's a room! It's exciting to see people so happy about a place and they're never disappointed in Senoia. Not only are they seeing Woodbury but they're seeing Senoia and it's a special place.' Make your reservations now at http://verandabandbinn.com/

    Pre-Historic World

    in Education

    We use to watch on TV the old old movies about dinosaurs, and pre-historic creatures.  such as the Lost Continent or Journey to the Center of the Earth, King Kong and recently Jurassic Park.


    Were those creatures destroyed during the flood and where did they come from?  Scientists are coming closer to discovering the real truth about these pre-historic creatures.  


    Have you every thought about how come they were so big?  St. George fought a dragon that was huge.  Was that for real? And today scientists want us to believe that the kimodo dragon is the offspring of the dinosaurs?  Does that mean that people were mini-people like in the Twilight Zone?


    The Bible sheds a little light on the subject.  But I have a hunch that the library of Alexandria which was destroyed by fire the Invaders the first notably being Julius Ceasar in 48 BC had recorded documents about the pre-historic times.  After 48 BC the remaining library was completely in two different events.


    Why would leaders want to destroy a building full of old writings?  

    Perhaps recorded in those writings are some details of our discussion today the pre-historic world.

    Finally, is how gay-friendly a university might be a good reason for root for their football team in the college bowl playoffs. We look at the LGBT rankings of Oregon, Ohio State, Alabama and Florida State.
