New Seven Wonders Of Nature

The New7Wonders of Nature campaign started in 2007, immediately after the campaign to elect the man-made New7Wonders of the World, in which more than 100 million votes were cast. From over 440 participants representing over 220 countries and through a national qualification and race to become one of the Top 77, as well as the recommendations of the Panel of Experts led by Prof. Federico Mayor, the list of 28 “Official Finalist Candidates” was determined. On November 11th, 2011, the New Seven Wonders Of Nature were pronounced.

The Amazon Rainforest And River

The Amazon of South America is the second longest river in the world and by far the largest by waterflow with an average discharge greater than the next seven largest rivers combined (not including Madeira and Rio Negro, which are tributuaries of the Amazon). The Amazon, which has the largest drainage basin in the world, about 7,050,000 square kilometres (2,720,000 sq mi), accounts for approximately one-fifth of the world’s total river flow. Also, it is very important to mention that this river flows through seven countries: Brazil, Ecuador, Venezuela, Colombia, French Guiana, Peru and Suriname.

Ha Long Bay (Vietnam)

Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and a popular travel destination, located in Vietnam. The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes. Ha Long Bay is a center of a larger zone which includes Bái T Long bay to the northeast, and Cát Bà islands to the southwest. Ha Long Bay has an area of around 1,553 km2, including 1,960–2,000 islets, most of which are limestone.

Table Mountain (South Africa)

Table Mountain is a flat-topped mountain forming a prominent landmark overlooking the city of Cape Town in South Africa, and is featured in the flag of Cape Town and other local government insignia. It is a significant tourist attraction, with many visitors using the cableway or hiking to the top. The mountain forms part of the Table Mountain National Park.

Iguazu Falls (Brazil, Argentina)

Iguazu Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border of the Brazilian State of Paraná and the Argentine Province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into the upper and lower Iguazu. The Iguazu River originates near the city of Curitiba. It flows through Brazil for most of its course. Below its confluence with the San Antonio River, the Iguazu River forms the boundary between Brazil and Argentina.

Amazing Figure Skating Star Nora Hoffman

In 2007 Hoffman teamed up with Maxim Zavozin. Despite Zavozin having a fever, they skated in the original dance at Europeans, but his condition worsened and they had to withdraw before the free dance.They missed the 2009 World Championships due to a serious head injury to Hoffmann while training in the U.S. on 4 March 2009.
She returned to the ice in the second half of May 2009 and eventually began training again with Zavozin, although they had to omit lifts and spins for a while. The accident also resulted in a torn nerve in the sciatic muscle which took half a year to heal.
In the 2010–11 season, Hoffmann and Zavozin made their first appearance together on the Grand Prix series. Their first event was 2010 Cup of China where they placed fourth. At 2010 Cup of Russia, they won silver, their first medal on the senior Grand Prix series. They finished third in both the short and free dance and set personal best scores in both. They competed at the 2011 European Championships where they finished 8th after receiving some low levels from the technical panel and a small stumble.
The Hungarian figure skater not only showcased his talent at the Grand Prix held in China, but also an abundant cleavage far from unnoticed past the spectators. The beautiful Nora has so conquered all.
On 30 March 2011, Hoffmann was hospitalized with an unknown illness in Moscow where she was training. Doctors later said they were fairly certain it was pyelonephritis. She and Zavozin had to withdraw from the 2011 World Championships. We sand her our love and hope we can see her on ice again. She proved that she can fight against anything.
