Bihar new ganga bridge project
A golden bridge being held up by a giant's stone hands may sound like something out of a storybook, but it's very much real - and tourists are already heading there in droves. The Cau Van 'Golden Bridge' has just opened in Vietnam in the Ba Na Hills near the city of Da Nang, and it looks utterly epic. The 150m long bridge sits perched on a mountaintop, overlooking the spectacular jungle landscape, held up by two huge concrete hands that look like they're coming out of the jungle itself. The idea is that the hands look like some sort of mountain deity holding up the structure - it's being hailed as a work of art by architects and visitors alike. And because it looks like something out of a film, it's no surprise that the pedestrian bridge is already proving a huge hit with visitors ever since it opened in June. Built by the TA Corporation, the bridge stands 1,400m above sea level, so it offers up some once-in-a-lifetime views of the Vietnamese landscape, as well as picturesque … [Read more...] about Vietnam’s epic new Golden Bridge is held up by a giant’s stone hands
Google on Wednesday announced plans to add three new devices to Project Fi. Starting today, Project Fi customers can use the Moto G6, LG G7, and LG V35, the latter of which was just announced (and is also available through AT&T). Today’s news expands Project Fi with some exciting new blood. Before, the only devices officially compatible with Project Fi included Google’s Pixel and Nexus phones, along with the Moto X4. For my money, the Pixel 2 is still your best option, but it’s nice to see more variety. The Moto G6 is one of the cheapest options available through Project Fi at just $199. The device offers a 5.7-inch (1080×2160) LCD display, 12-megapixel camera, 4GB of RAM, 3,000mAh battery, and Android 8.0. That’s a pretty good deal. If you decide to purchase the G7 or V35, those devices will retail for $749 and $899, respectively. When you consider the Pixel 2 is $649 and the Pixel 2 XL is $849, LG’s devices hardly seem worth it. Then again, … [Read more...] about Google adds three new phones to Project Fi

Dressed in blue jeans and ditching his tie, Putin jumped into the driver's seat of an orange dump truck Tuesday and drove across the bridge with cameras recording every move. One camera in the cab of the truck captured his small talk with a construction worker who was along for the ride and broadcast it across state media. The imagery was deliberate: Putin was sealing his disputed 2014 … [Read more...] about Putin made a show of crossing the new Crimea bridge. But he was upstaged by a cat.
Two years ago, I used junkyard parts to turn a $600 Jeep Cherokee into an off-road beast. Then I rebuilt a dilapidated 1948 Willys CJ-2A farm Jeep, took it on a 1,300 mile road trip, and wheeled the crap out of it at Moab. Now it’s time to introduce this year’s project: an $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer for which I have plans. Big plans. I spent months stressing out about how I was going to follow Project Swiss Cheese and Project Slow Devil. Leaves began changing colors, and the weather forecast started showing smaller numbers, and I still didn’t have a project vehicle. Desperation grew thick as I recalled just how much of my time last year’s project had demanded, so I started prowling Craigslist more thoroughly than any human should. I was looking at some real crap-cans for a while. At one point, I nearly bought a two-wheel drive 1976 AM General DJ-5 postal Jeep with that huge 10-inch rust hole in the frame rail that you see in the photo above. My boss Patrick … [Read more...] about This $800 Jeep Grand Wagoneer Hasn’t Run In 12 Years And It’s My New Off-Road Project
