Blurred Out: 51 Things You Aren't Allowed to See on Google Maps

Depending on which feature you use, Google Earth offers a satellite view or a street level view of tons of locations around the world. You can look up landmarks like the Pyramids of Egypt or the Great Wall of China, as well as more personal places, like your ex’s house. But for all of the places that Google Maps allows you to see, there are plenty of places that are off-limits. Whether it’s due to government restrictions, personal-privacy lawsuits or mistakes, Google Maps has slapped a "Prohibited" sign on the following 51 places.
Government and Military SitesThe White House: Google Maps' images of the White House show a digitally erased version of the roof in order to obscure the air-defense and security assets that are in place.The U.S. Capitol: The U.S. Capitol has been fuzzy ever since Google Maps launched. Current versions of Google Maps and Google Earth show these sites uncensored, though with old pictures.Vice President's House: The Vice President's digs at…

Bats !! They make you crazy at times. When I stayed in my Lucknow home, which was lying abandoned for the last 20 years, I never knew that a baby bats will really  help me out in doing a warm up exercise before I take a nice nap. They really made me "A BATMAN !" after all those workouts in catching them up.Ummmm..We both were terrified of each other's presence and it was literally their home for the past 20 years which we actually intended to invade.
..... I saw the first flying bat in the year 2005 and their wing span was as much as 1 meter. It happened when I was in Xamvier's hostel. Crows were going back home in the evening and these BATS were gliding like the crows does, without flapping their wings. They were also particulary visible, REALLY BIG !!,"COVERED WITH THEIR OWN BROWN BLANKET" & hanging upside down, from the fig trees near Deonar Bus Stop and Gandhi Nagar Bus Stop. Let me tell you, that there are very particular places in Mumbai from where …

Towards A New Ecosystems Approach

The world is going through a difficult phase. The economic downturn is slowly coming to an end, and  countries are fighting hard to reach a new economic stability that will hurt their population as little as  possible. In the process the effects of global climate change, though recognized, have been put on a lesser  priority than regaining economic strength. That’s why the richer nations could not agree on terms at  Copenhagen in December 2009. 
But whether nations agree on terms or not, Earth continues to get warmer - and the challenges are growing,  the glaciers are melting away, pollution is galloping faster, over-usage of the world’s great rivers is  increasing.  Soon we may see the fears of the next wars being fought over water availability globally  coming true.And that’s not all. In 2009 an estimated 1.02 billion people were classified as under nourished, approximately 12% more than the previous year (2008). This means that nearly one in six people on  earth suffers from undernourishmen…

How I got my stolen mobile back

It was on 10th July 2011.Somebody stole my Micromax X 510 phone when I was entering in the bus number 399 at the Gandhi nagar bus stop, Kanjurmarg. I was returning back to my flat after watching "Delli Belli" in Huma adlabs with my brothers. While entering the bus, I was listening to the song using a headphone which was connected to my cell phone. I realized all of a sudden that the song stopped and when I checked my pocket, the phone was not there. My phone was ringing for some 10 minutes which indicated that the pick pocketer was inside the bus only. I still couldn't nab this guy as I had no option to identify him and pointing to a wrong person will only create more problems. Things aside, a drunkard traveling in the bus created a lot of ruckus with this matter when I raised an alarm.
It happens rarely.
Now see this piece of news.
