Best Chocolate Places on Earth!

Image
Many few people can state with safety they don't like melt-in-the-mouth chocolates. In fact, we people actually need chocolate as researches have shown that consuming cocoa chocolate may positively affect the circulatory system and boost our metabolism; even though high in calories, a piece of chocolate brings energy and fast thinking. No one should exclude a reasonable portion of it from their nutrition. Do not overdo it though!
Travellers are lucky since they get to taste different types of chocolate around the world.

Europe's 10 cheapest cities to visit

Image
As we live in a age of austerity with the continental countries of Europe facing unprecedented EU challenges, such as escalating inflation rates, higher VAT and with the general impact of the credit crunch and import costs, future tourists are starting to look carefully which destination offers the best value for summer 2013 or a winter break.
Here below is the updated list of Europe's 10 cheapest major cities to visit.
The greatest surprise on the list is London, which due to the fact it is outside the EU prices are relatively falling enabling it to reach Europe's bargain hotspot top 10 for the first time in 5 years. This is good news for Olympic Games visitors, however we must balance this information with the recent increase in exchange between the euro and the Pound Sterling, making it more expensive to buy GB Pounds now than in the last 5 years or so.
It's interesting to see that London is sixth on the list and the Norwegian capital Oslo last.

WiFi is the silent killer of Houseplants and Concentration

Image
Have you ever wondered why for no apparent reason your house or office plants are dying or why it's becoming increasingly hard to concentrate these days. There just might be an unexpected common reason for both of these issues.

Results from an unlikely WiFi experiment conducted by a group of students in Denmark has now generated serious international debate within the scientific community. In fact it took 5 girls from a North Jutland school in Denmark to observe that they had difficulty concentrating after sleeping with their Mobile Phones next to their beds.

The girls driven by curiosity decided to find out why. Naturally their school did not possess the necessary equipment or technology to test human brain waves, so they took it upon themselves to be resourceful by executing a more rudimentary experiment.

The Experiment
The girls placed 6 trays of garden cress seeds next to standard Wi-Fi routers that emitted roughly the same microwave radiation as a Mobile Phone. Then they place…
