The Baylor University campus in Waco, Texas, is about to undergo a major transformation with the addition of a new on-campus football stadium. The innovative riverfront stadium will offer one of the most unique fan experiences in all of intercollegiate athletics. EarthCam’s construction cameras will be on site for the length of this significant project, documenting progress from foundation to completion.
Baylor football has been off-campus since 1936. The strong desire from Baylor Nation to move their Bears on campus was a major factor for construction of the new stadium. Baylor Athletics selected three of EarthCam’s construction cameras one live streaming camera and two high-definition megapixel cameras to document the progress for this significant development project. Each camera offers a unique perspective of the site, enabling project teams to view activity remotely in real-time, while documenting the entire process for time-lapse photography. A robotic megapixel camera will automatically pan the jobsite each day, generating an impressive 360

TibetCtrip, a Lhasa based travel agency, is promoting responsible travel in Tibet by making visitors aware of the cultural differences between Tibet and many western nations that travelers come from. Here, they provide some important new culture tips for travel to Tibet in 2013. With an average elevation of over 4000 meters, Tibet remained inaccessible to most for a great portion of its history. A lack of outside influence has helped Tibets culture blossom into one of the most unique places that can be found on earth. With the modern world rapidly encroaching on Tibet and its people, abiding by a few guidelines can go a long way in terms of helping local Tibetans feel comfortable with foreign visitors.
Ask permission before photographing people or religious sites. Just like anywhere else, some Tibetans may feel uncomfortable with having their picture taken while others may have no problem. Many monasteries and temples charge a fee for taking pictures. A native Tibet travel guide will know when and where photographs are okay and when paying a fee is necessary.
Avoid politically sensitive discussions in public. Tibets political situation is unique. While political discourse is beneficial to societies the world over, given the situation, these kind of discussions may make some Tibetans feel uncomfortable.
Be Charitable. This is a great way to engage with locals on a Tibet tour. It is appropriate and appreciated to make donations at monasteries or temples. Also, food or money can be a great gift for a pilgrim. However, avoid giving candy or money to children as it encourages begging.
Try speaking Tibetan. While its hard to pronounce and the words can be hard for westerners to remember, any attempt is appreciated. A simple Tashi Delek can brighten someones day. So remember to learn some useful Tibetan travel language and try to talk with local tour guide, driver, shop owners and hotel staff with little simple local language.
Those traveling to Tibet are likely to experience a world different from anything they know. While it can be difficult to keep in mind every single cultural norm, making an effort to follow these guidelines of “travel to Tibet-know before you go” lets Tibetans know that you respect their culture and way of life. Tibet is a rapidly changing place and many Tibetans are trying hard to hold on to their unique culture before it slips away forever. When visiting, travelers must be mindful of their actions and how they affect locals.
For more information on how to set up a tour, contact a local Tibet travel agency. Devin Moore is the author of this article. Get to know the independent economic analyst Devin Moore.

In his first official discourse to the world, leader of the Mayan people, Grand Elder Alejandro Cirilo Perez Oxlaj, a.k.a. “Wandering Wolf,” reveals the truth about Mayan prophecy in the new documentary, “Shift of the Ages: A Mayan Journey Through Time.” Commissioned on behalf of the Mayan nation, independently produced “Shift of the Ages” premieres worldwide just in time to dispel misconceptions about 2012 and bring to light the true messages the Mayan people predicted about this time period, a transition they call the new Sun.” The film will be distributed to more than 250,000 people worldwide through the Shift Network on FANetwork.tv, and can be streamed free until midnight on December 31, 2012 at http://www.ShiftoftheAges.com. Afterward, there will be a charge of $ 4.99 per viewer. Private screenings are available and encouraged.
Commonly known and accepted as superb mathematicians and astronomers who devised one of the most accurate calendars known to man, The Maya speak of a year zero,” which was thought by some scholars to be 2012. “Shift of the Ages” follows the rise of Wandering Wolf, a born spiritual leader destined to unite humanity and carry out Mayan prophecy. Through story, he teaches how this “zero” time period is what the Maya refer to as the change of the suns, and clarifies it as a transition process, not a singular day. Wandering Wolf travels the world, meeting with spiritual and indigenous leaders, with an urgent message about the role human consciousness plays in making this transition.
Set against the backdrop of the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar, “Shift of the Ages” is a tightly woven tapestry of human drama and cultural history that takes you on an adventure into the heart of the Maya, their ancient spiritual traditions and sophisticated culture. The film beautifully illustrates the power of the human spirit.
In his directorial debut, filmmaker Steve Copeland surrounded himself with industry veterans such as producer Myles Connolly, whose 25-year career has seen numerous film awards in the documentary category; Director of Photography Cris Borgnine, an award-winning Cinematographer born and raised in Hollywood as the son of Academy-Award winning actor Ernest Borgnine; Original Score by Academy-Award nominee Herwig Maurer whose sound work has been praised in blockbusters like Apocalypto, Zen & Zero, Passion of the Christ, Hostel and King of the Hill; and Narrator Q’orianka Kilcher, an actress best known for her portrayal of Pocahontas as well as her role as a human rights activist. Joseph Giove, founder and director of the non-profit Common Passion, serves as Executive Producer and co-writer, a role in which his background in consciousness-related research served the project well. In the spirit of Mayan tradition, we are releasing the film online in a donation-only model that will further support Wandering Wolf in his mission, says Giove.
Common Passion is the exclusive launch distributor of the film. Half of all donations will benefit non-profit charities supporting the indigenous in Guatemala as well as in other countries in South, Central and North America. This includes Common Passion itself, as well as other qualified non-profit charities supporting indigenous peoples throughout the Americas. Common Passion will continue to lead the “Shift of the Ages” movement that is spreading Wandering Wolfs message of protecting the Earth, and fostering peace and non-violence in communities around the world.
Wandering Wolf does much more than dispel all the doomsday material out there, says director Steve Copeland. He shares sacred Mayan prophecy about the world far beyond 2012 and specific messages about the importance of healing humanity. Translating a unique and profound culture into mainstream entertainment has not been an easy journey. There are so many layers to this story that even I, having seen the film a thousand times, receive a renewed personal healing and hopeful feeling about our future on Earth with each viewing. I hope people watch it, enjoy it, are inspired by it, and share it with their friends. In the words of Wandering Wolf: One human family, one home.

Special for the holiday, a new free serial novel provides the first release from the new serial novel A Way Out, by Dan Abelow. Immediately downloadable for free, its perfect for enjoying, gifting or sharing both year-round and during the holidays.
A brief excerpt:
…..(start quote from “A Way Out”)…..
This decade, in Silicon Valley, on Sand Hill Road…
Somehow Mallory had always known a digital tsunami would arrive, a technology that would turn previous digital revolutions into mere waves on a beach: transistors, computers, PCs, the Internet, smart phones, online media, social networking, cloud services… the blizzard of advances were just waves, signals that a tsunami was building over the horizon where it was unseen, unknowable.
Now it was sweeping toward this moment, toward them.
It was the future everyone everywhere would want, the historic inflection that might deliver the dreams of wealth and freedom that individuals, societies and humanity had always needed, always imagined.
Today these leaders would each be given the chance to own their piece of it, to have their say in it, to turn it loose on the world.
This group could take life and prosperity to a higher level than its ever been, Mallory thought. An Expandiverse, a new kind of digital reality, would be born and stand next to physical reality containing multiple digital worlds theyll design to reach amazing goals.
Was this the first of their secret meetings or maybe their only one, he wondered. Most likely they would use this technologys new way to meet digitally and unobservably, to work together in a dematerialized space that could not be seen or touched, the first of the invisible and undetectable groups who would own and run the future.
Its first step was here. It was time for the black swan to arrive.
…..(/end quote from “A Way Out”)…..
“A Way Out,” by Dan Abelow, is one of two serial novels Abelow is writing and releasing quarterly, to tell the story of the Expandiverse, the first patent pending digital world that can stand next to our physical world.
As an inventor, Abelows previous patents are licensed by over 500 companies including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Samsung Electronics and many other world leaders.
As an author, Abelow wrote and also ghostwrote five books that were published in the 1970s and 80s, two of which were million-copy bestsellers.
Abelows new patent-pending invention, the Expandiverse, is new technology for the kind of digital world we expect to live in by the middle of this century. This means a digital world can start sooner, instead of decades from now.
Instead of white papers and Power Points, Abelow is writing and releasing two serial novels set in the Expandiverse. These let everyone experience this new digital reality immediately as free and sharable downloads and ebooks, without needing a technical background.
The Expandiverse is the only new technology IP available to leap ahead decades and build a mid-21st-century digital world today. It attempts to change the game by jump-starting an Expanded future that can launch new ways to surge forward now.
