The garden aims to transform the way tourists see NYC by encouraging them to interact with their environment, calm down and enjoy the Earth.

Midtown Manhattan’s famous garden oasis

The world-famous Ford Foundation headquarters building forms a stark contrast in the environment as one travels west on 42nd Street from the Tudor City neighborhood, which is heavily influenced by neo-Gothic architecture. It looks like a fortress and offers little clues to the true architectural genius of the building from the outside. The facade of the building is mainly composed of glass panels, Corten steel and pink-brown granite. The north and west sides, which overlook the atrium, have 12 floors of office space. The south and east facades are glazed. As well as creating a fluid flow of magical green space between the magnificent atrium and the splendid Tudor City Park to the east, the walls of glass produce a temperate atmosphere that is perfect for the atrium’s subtropical garden.

Inside the structure, a large 10-story glass atrium is centered around a beautiful tropical garden on the ground floor. Amazingly, watering this garden uses no city resources as the roof of the building collects rainfall and the garden is kept hydrated with a stored water supply during times of drought. Looking at the roof, more vegetation is visible. From the upper levels, visitors can see miniature plants and ferns hanging from beams above. The main staircase which connects these entrances is divided into three landings which lead to three-level garden terraces.

Related: New York Botanical Garden in Three Hours: Here’s What to See

The upper levels of the atrium atrium are decorated with plants due to the planters that flank the margins of the third, fourth, fifth and eleventh levels. Twelve saucer magnolias, low shrubs and ground covers were first planted on the terraces. Later, a variety of lush subtropical plants more suited to the indoor atmosphere took their place. The terraces descend to the centerpiece of the garden, a square swimming pool of calm water bordered by a wide strip of concrete, located at the lowest point of the atrium. The aromatic scent of gardenia and the melodious sound of flowing water filling a swimming pool nestled among the trees contribute to the tranquil atmosphere of the garden.

The Ford Foundation Building was completed in 1967 and was designated a New York City Landmark in 1997.

  • Opening time : The beautiful garden oasis is open Monday through Friday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and when the Ford Foundation Gallery hosts an exhibition, the garden is accessible Saturday, 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Please note that, unfortunately, the garden will be closed to the public from November 14 to November 18.

  • Admission fees : Free

How do I get to the Garden Of Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice?

Visitors can find the Ford Foundation Center for Social Justice on East 43rd Street at 320. There are two entrances to the building: one at 321 East 42nd Street and the other at 320 East 43rd Street. Both entrances include power-assisted doors and are wheelchair accessible. Customers are advised to enter through the 43rd Street gate as it gives them access to the corporate reception, hospitality area and Ford Foundation Gallery on the same level. The wheelchair-accessible walkway in the dazzling garden, as well as the lower-level meeting rooms, are easily accessible from the 42nd Street entrance. It is also good to know that all floors are accessible by elevators. Visitors are asked to check with their host in advance if they have any questions about entering the building during a meeting or reception.

  • Means of transport:
    • Getting there by train: Metro-North and the 4, 5, 6, 7, or S subway lines can take visitors to nearby Grand Central Station.
    • Coming by bus: M15, M42 and X21 are the buses to take.

Looking for a new date activity or a fun outing with friends and family? Why not discover this new coastal activity park at Wyndham Harbour?

Elements Coastal Activity Park at Wyndham Harbor

This coastal park offers you a chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature. The Elements is located on a stretch of coastline that, until now, has remained largely undiscovered.

Inspired by nature, as well as the rich agricultural and maritime history of Werribee and its surroundings, the foundations of this park were made from materials with a connection to the community. This includes salvaged timber from the nearby marina and repurposed 120-year-old railway sleepers from the old Geelong rail. There are also comfortable, carefully constructed natural habitats for native bird and bat communities. The landscape was created with sustainability in mind. Native and native flora and grasses are used to promote biodiversity, and the mini-golf green requires no watering.

“When it came to The Elements, we wanted to make sure we respected this beautiful stretch of coast and were as environmentally conscious as possible with our practices, design and offering,” said Eamon Walmsley, Director from Wyndham Harbour. “We wanted to touch the earth lightly when it came to the natural landscape and used native plants, grasses and salvaged materials wherever possible to amplify the natural beauty of the area, rather than change it altogether.”

18-hole mini-golf course

It is open Wednesday and Thursday from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Friday to Sunday from 12 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Coffee corner

Get your barista brew from this recycled shipping container. They also have a growing menu filled with fresh produce, serving warm pies and tasty rolls for a casual breakfast or lunch. The Coffee Corner is open from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Nature Walks

Walk around Wyndham Harbor and follow the water’s edge. Nearby you will find a small cove with access to a beach. Admire the sea, feel the sand between your toes and enjoy dazzling views of the Melbourne skyline.

Enjoy a picnic on the sandy cove or stretch out on the lush lawn. Bring your own food or reserve a basket at 3030 Boulevard.

BASED around two small and beautiful beach coves, Playa Flamenca is a popular urbanization in Orihuela Costa, in the Alicante region, part of the sunny Valencian Community, famous for its oranges and flamingos.

The name of this well-located urbanization, nestled 4 km south of Torrevieja, comes from its first Belgian and Flemish settlers; they arrived in the 1960s or 70s to redevelop an area that was once farmland and olive groves.

Today most of the inhabitants are British, German, Belgian and Scandinavian, comprising permanent residents and those who stay for part of the year, or visit for their annual vacation.

Thanks to the mild climate of the Valencian Community, the weather in Playa Flamenca enjoys over 320 days of sunshine a year, the winters are short and the average annual temperature is over 18°C. This makes it the ideal resort for all seasons.

Playa Flamenca is based around two white, sandy coves, La Mosca and La Estaca, which have been awarded the coveted Blue Flag status since 1992. These are known for their crystal clear waters and serene surroundings. They are the perfect place to enjoy swimming and water sports – or just relax and enjoy the beach life.

Although a bustling shopping mall is directly on the main road (N-332) that borders the urbanisation, once you turn off this road and drive for a minute to the ‘playas’ you are surrounded by the Costa Blanca ‘natraleza’ – the ocean, palms, cacti and beach facilities presided over by lifeguards that look straight out of Bay Watch. The area abounds with colorful flowers during the summer months./

Property in this popular urbanization ranges from well-appointed townhouses with sea views to semi-detached houses and villas with swimming pools. The resort is a perfect place for families and retirees.

An ideally placed hub

Playa Flamenca is accessible by the main road N-332 between Cartagena and Alicante or Torrevieja. It also has its own signposted exit (763) from the AP-7 motorway. It is just 51 km from Alicante-Elche Airport and 53 km from Corvera Airport in the Region of Murcia. It is also located between two train stations: 30 km from Murcia’s Balsicas-Mar Menor station and 31 km from Orihuela station. The town has its own bus service which connects it to other nearby destinations including the thriving towns of Torrevieja and Alicante. For those with a vehicle, the Playa Flamenca urbanization offers relatively easy and free parking.

The best of both worlds – natural and commercial

Playa Flamenca is not just a seaside resort: it combines the “naturalaza” of the seaside with nearby commerce and entertainment. The area is home to the Orihuela Costa Town Hall headquarters and within walking distance you will find a different world of large shopping malls, supermarkets – including Mercadona and Consum, a gymnasium with yoga and exercise classes, facilities medical and schools.

For those who like to dine out, the area offers a diverse range of restaurants and bars, covering many nationalities. You will find Irish, Chinese, Italian, French and of course Spanish establishments, where traditional cuisine meets modern styles.

Mall

According to Tripadvisor, the top three restaurants are Coffee del Mar, with its European/British cuisine; The Cellar Door, serving French, Mediterranean and Asian dishes; and Leonardo Ristorante, with its Italian and Mediterranean range. For those who feel inclined to play bingo after their refreshments, the nearby Kasey’s Bar is popular with visitors. You are spoiled for choice!

A network of ramblas and creeks
In the urbanization of Playa Flamenca, the central element is a dry river bed, “Rambla de las Estacas”, which only carries water during the rainy season. It ends with a cove, the beach “La Estaca”, which is supervised. Here you can swim or snorkel, snorkel or have fun on boats. After all this action, you can have a refreshment and a snack at the “chirungito” (beach bar).

The promenade offers bicycles, electric scooters and fitness facilities for adults, as well as hiking routes that explore the small coves that adjoin each other. A popular “sendero” (hiking route) runs along the Rambla de las Estacas and is passable for most of the year.

If you walk past Playa La Mosca, you will find a dog-only beach, where you can exercise with your four-legged friend. For the brave there is also a designated nudist beach nearby – although this may be something many visitors choose to avoid!

If you want to go shopping without leaving the “urb”, Playa Flamenca has a market every Saturday, from 9am to 2pm, except on public holidays. This is the place to buy your fruits and vegetables as well as belts, handbags, shoes and accessories.

In the heart of golf country
Playa Flamenca is conveniently located close to two of the most famous golf courses on the Costa Blanca, both around 10 minutes drive away.

Campoamor Golf Course

A popular option is the Royal Campoamor golf course, opened in 1988 by HRH D. Juan de Borbón, Count of Barcelona. He holds a tournament every August to honor his name. With carefully manicured greens and panoramic views of the coast, this attractive course has been developed on the Dehesa de Campoamor and is situated between two interconnected valleys, surrounded by hills, which protect it from the wind. With a microclimate that makes it suitable for golf all year round, the golf course is accompanied by its own complex of hotels, shops and restaurants.

The Villamartín golf course is also highly rated, one of the first to be launched in the Valencia region. Opened in 1972, it was designed by legendary Californian architect Robert Putman and attracts golfers from far and wide. An “old-school” course steeped in golf history, it boasts a famous 17e hole, which is reputed to be one of the best “short holes” in Europe. The well maintained course is surrounded by plants and pine trees and offers views of the Mediterranean Sea. Famous golfers – including Severiano Ballesteros, José María Olazábal and Ian Woosnan – have played here. The clubhouse has been recently restored and has a restaurant on its roof terrace, with views of the 18e hole.

Nearby Attractions
Playa Flamenca is the perfect hub for visiting other towns on the Costa Blanca including Torrevieja, Zenia and Cartagena. A five-minute drive will take you to the Zenia Boulevard shopping center, which is one of the largest shopping centers in the entire Mediterranean basin.

If you have lively teenagers to entertain, a visit to the mist is the Go-Karts Orihuela Costa racing circuit on the road to Torrevieja. Highly ranked on Tripadvisor, this establishment offers quads and inflatables for young children, as well as go-karts. Another recommended destination for younger family members is Urban Jump – a trampoline park that offers lessons in how to jump and flip.

For creative families, the nearby Paint It ceramic modeling workshop teaches children and adults how to mix oil-based colors and create their own object to take home.

If you drive to Torrevieja, 4km away, boat hire is available – why not during the day on the ocean?

Electric scooters

Hot property
The older part of Playa Flamenca, around the Rambla, is full of individual villas, many of which are on the front line of the beach. However, due to the small size of the coves, which limits further development, these properties are priced high. The urbanization also has a newly developed area, across the N-332, which has smaller plots and lower prices. Here you will find apartments, bungalows and collective housing projects. Some people decide to buy their own land if they want a bespoke property.

Where to stay

Hotel La Zenia
A short walk around the next cove down from La Estaca, Playa Cala, you will find Hotel La Zenia. It is right next to the beach and is also conveniently located near cafes/bars, a ‘chirungito’, shops and other facilities.

Campoamor Golf Hotel
Located 10 minutes by car from Playa Flamenca, the Campoamor Golf Hotel is the perfect place to stay. It offers accommodation in comfortable apartments, a large restaurant, shop and swimming pool, as well as views of the Orihuela coast. The Olive Press found the prices for accommodation and food to be reasonable and that this hotel is suitable for solo travelers and business travelers. Not just for golfers!

Israel has five desalination plants for a production of 600 million cubic meters per year. Here, that of Hadira. Caroline de Malet/Le Figaro

FILE – 85% of the country’s water comes from seawater desalination. And Israel even has a plan B for dealing with an emergency.

Special Envoy to Israel

In the beginning, the Promised Land was a desert. To the west, the Mediterranean, to the east, the Jordan, which serves as a border with Jordan, to the northeast, Lake Tiberias and, at the southern end, the Red Sea. The country born in 1948 is surrounded by water. However, with fifty days of rain per year, it is a semi-desert land, especially in its southern part, the Negev. Not to mention that its population has doubled over successive waves of immigration and that it too has been hard hit by climate change.

For a long time, Lake Tiberias – a center of Christianity locally known as the Sea of ​​Galilee or Lake Kinneret in Hebrew, where Jesus walked on water – with its 4.5 billion cubic meters (when it is full) was the country’s only source of water. From an early age, young Israelis are aware of the price of blue gold, which their parents buy at the right price to avoid waste…

But how many are aware of the wonderful fertility treatment options that exist in India and how many are willing to discuss the issue openly? Just a handful only. There is a huge gap in terms of available treatment options and couples struggling with fertility. Oasis Fertility acts as a bridge by creating awareness and making treatments affordable and accessible in all geographies.

Breaking Down Barriers Educating and empowering the public about infertility can bring about dramatic change. Through several initiatives such as Facebook Live, webinars and talk shows from fertility specialists across India and by organizing fertility counseling camps in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities, Oasis Fertility is trying every possible ways to raise awareness about infertility and also educate them about treatment options.

Oasis Fertility has set up AndroLife clinics exclusively for male patients. By creating a dedicated space and privacy for men, they help men break down barriers and discuss their fertility issues with andrologists. Although men contribute 50% of infertility, most men deny it for fear of embarrassment and isolation. Unless both husband and wife undergo a fertility evaluation, the root cause of infertility cannot be identified and tailored fertility treatment plans cannot be created to enable couples to overcome the infertility and achieving parenthood.

Speak Out Infertility is like any other health problem. Couples need to come out of misconceptions, fear, inhibitions and talk to a fertility specialist about their issues. Silence can lead to no solution. Couples need to talk openly about their issues and support each other because infertility is emotionally and physically taxing. They can participate in various online forums/communities that support couples struggling with fertility and listen to real life stories of other couples who have gone through the same phase and overcome infertility.

Oasis Fertility creates several opportunities for couples to confide in and talk to our fertility specialists. Oasis Fertility provides a nurturing, compassionate and safe environment for couples to embark on their journey of parenthood.

Asking for help A woman’s biological clock cannot be rewound and most are unaware that fertility declines with age. It is essential to seek help at the right time. Even if the couple wishes to postpone parenthood, they should take appropriate measures like social freezing by which they can preserve their fertility and conceive later in the future. Oasis Fertility operates in over 25 locations across India even in Tier 2 and 3 cities. If the couple is unable to conceive even after 1 year of trying, it is important to consult a fertility specialist .

Make informed decisions A couple should understand the pros and cons of fertility treatments and have realistic expectations. One size does not apply in the case of fertility treatments. For each couple, exclusive personalized fertility treatments should be designed by the fertility specialist based on age, medical history, health condition, etc. of the couple. Discussing each step of treatment with a fertility specialist will provide clarity and allow couples to make informed decisions about their parenthood journey.

Holistic approach @ Oasis Fertility: At Oasis, we believe that only a holistic approach including several aspects such as diet, exercise, medication, lifestyle and treatment can enable couples to overcome infertility and become happy parents.

We have exclusive in-house nutritionists who provide specific diet plans for weight loss, weight gain, PCOS and several other issues and offer guidance to couples throughout their parenting journey enabling them to be healthy. healthy and fit.

Wellness experts and in-house psychologists provide much-needed emotional support for couples. They motivate couples and dispel their fears, anxieties, and inhibitions by creating personalized wellness treatment plans that include meditation, psychotherapy, counseling, and more. which can alleviate negativity and make couples feel confident, calm and stress-free.

The bubbling hot tub nearby was inviting, but upon discovering the heated water, I was happy to take the plunge, thrilled to have the pool all to myself and able to swim several uninterrupted lengths in the pretty surrounding terrace with brown autumn leaves falling from the trees.

It was a small ‘surprise’ that set the theme for our overnight stay at the Feversham Arms Hotel & Verbena Spa, Helmsley, which although in the heart of a bustling market town still managed to own a warm “country lifestyle”. vibe.

Arriving early before our afternoon arrival, we had time to stretch our legs and explore the town center which was a short walk from the hotel. Helmsley, a bustling little town with Yorkshire charm, has a mix of shops selling a range of items from jewellery, ceramics and antiques to art, high-end fashion and home accessories.

As usual, my wife and I were more drawn to the delicious smells from the various food outlets, predictably yielding to our temptations with lunch purchases of freshly baked sausage rolls with quiche and pie. to Yorkshire curd to take home.

One thing that may come as a surprise is that the Feversham Arms is dog-friendly and appears to be one of many ‘upscale’ UK hotels happy to welcome our four-legged friends, allowing them to share in the joys of staying in a luxurious retreat with their owners.

It was the perfect place to take Jojo, our newly adopted greyhound, for her very first hotel stay, who must have thought she was in dreamland after spending her early years at the racetrack when she was not lived only in kennels.

Our poolside suite accommodation, one of the hotel’s five self-contained ‘cottages’, was ideal for the dog and the owners as it was spacious, close to the hotel entrance and easily accessible for ‘pit stops’, not to mention its super comfortable features, rustic decor with oak beams and spacious poolside deck, ideal for those who enjoy a morning dip.

It’s the extra touches that make places like the Feversham so special, such as the bathrobes and slippers available and the plush Temple Spa toiletries, making guests feel like they’re at a resort rather than a hotel. .

Dinner was an enjoyable experience from the start as we were immediately made to feel comfortable when they were escorted to a ‘dog friendly’ table in the corner of the living room with ample space for Jojo to rest without causing travel risk to the friendly and efficient team at Weathervane Restaurant.

After selecting a bottle of crisp New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc from the wine list, the food that followed exceeded expectations, starting with a deliciously creamy butternut squash velouté starter as well as beautifully presented east coast mackerel. for my wife.

The addition of sourdough bread and butter preceded two appetizing, yet very different main courses – Yorkshire Beef with Truffle Pommes Dauphine and Oven Baked North Sea Halibut in a Mussel Broth which, in Gregg Wallace’s terminology, was like being kissed by ocean creatures.

Desserts were the very rich dark chocolate and beer cake with salted caramel ice cream and the Dulche de Leche tart, both enjoyed under the prying eyes of Jojo du Sol who was thankfully kept at bay with a selection of dogs close at hand. treaty.

After a good night’s sleep, the next morning we returned to ‘our’ special table for a hearty breakfast, with a choice of ‘Full Yorkshire’ and King’s Eggs, plus a sausage for the dog, feeding the three of us enough for the return trip.

The Feversham describes itself as a ‘Mediterranean oasis nestled in North Yorkshire’, and with its heated pool, beautiful terrace and all the little surprises that come with a stay at this wonderful hotel, they’re certainly not wrong.

With market season in full swing, there are a plethora of places to find local treats. For those who like a little sea breeze with their shopping, the weekly Corey Avenue Sunday Market is one of the area’s best hidden destinations.

Unlike many markets, the Corey Avenue Sunday Market specializes in delicious indulgences. The market is full of great food, sweet desserts, baked goods, smoked salts, fresh coffee, aromatic candles, and local nurseries with tons of plants. Along with all the treats, local artists showcase crafts and other creations.

The market’s main season kicked off in October, and the sunny market attracts dozens of vendors every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 300 Corey Avenue. Local artisans spread over three blocks surrounding (and along) Corey Avenue, creating a gathering of designers that is one of the best pleasure experiences in town.

While the on-site vendors rotate from week to week, some of the constant stars help make the market a must-visit every Sunday. Sweet treats are always a hit with regulars like churned, baked ice cream and vegan desserts in the sun. For something savorier, we recommend Tamales Azteca Rojo, Crooked Johnson’s small-batch meats or Komeme’s vegan empanadas.

And of course, there’s fresh food from Aurora’s Produce or the Florida Fruit Co-Op, fragrant home treats from Julien or Moon and Mantras, or a delicious cup of coffee from Grove Surf + Coffee. Learn more about the Corey Avenue Sunday Market and follow the vendors on their facebook page.

A hidden ‘living oasis’ has been discovered at the bottom of the ocean in the Maldives: ScienceAlert https://infos-voyage.com/a-hidden-living-oasis-has-been-discovered-at-the-bottom-of-the-ocean-in-the-maldives-sciencealert/ Mon, 24 Oct 2022 05:51:54 +0000 https://infos-voyage.com/a-hidden-living-oasis-has-been-discovered-at-the-bottom-of-the-ocean-in-the-maldives-sciencealert/ A team of aquanauts has discovered that the Maldives is an oasis for underwater life in a vast aquatic desert.

A team of aquanauts has discovered that the Maldives is an oasis for underwater life in a vast aquatic desert.

A recent underwater mission around a deep-sea seamount in the archipelago revealed a thriving new type of ecosystem, which researchers say has never been described before.

They call it “The Trapping Zone”: a 500-meter-deep (1,640-foot) world where big fish congregate to feast on microscopic nekton.

Micronekton are similar to zooplankton, although slightly larger, between 2 and 20 centimeters (up to 7 inches) in size (krill is among the smallest).

These tiny organisms actively swim between the ocean surface and mile-deep waters, creating a vertical wave of migration every day and night as larger fish follow them to feed.

The Nekton Maldives mission is the first study to systematically map the deep waters of the Maldives, a chain of 26 coral atolls southwest of Sri Lanka and India.

The mission is a venture between a nonprofit research institute of the same name, the government of the Maldives, and researchers at the University of Oxford.

Already, the international team has come across a new ecosystem surrounding the “Satho Rahaa” underwater mountain, based on the movement of micronekton.

As the sun rises each day, these tiny organisms begin to swim downward from the surface. Near the sunken seamount, however, submerged volcanic ridges and fossilized carbonate reefs formed 60 million years ago prevent micronekton from diving deeper than about 500 meters.

Trapped by the topography, the animals become “sitting ducks” for larger predators, such as schools of tuna, hungry sharks, and other deep-sea fish like spiny oreos, alfonsinos, and dogs of sea, who reside in the area.

In a glass bubble submarine, known as the Omega Seamaster II, the mission’s aquanauts observed a teeming ecosystem of predators and prey battling it out in the depths.

Not only did the team count a large number of fish, but they also observed a great diversity. Their submarine has shined its spotlight on tiger sharks, gill sharks, gulper sharks, scalloped hammerhead sharks, silky sharks, sand tiger sharks, or even bramble sharks, which are relatively rare.

“Why is this happening? Is it something specific at 500 meters, does this life go even further, what is this transition, what is it and why?” wonders marine scientist Lucy Woodall of the University of Oxford.

“This will allow us to better understand the deep ocean.”

If such an ecosystem exists in the Maldives, it is likely to be found on other oceanic islands with similar underwater structures.

Perhaps seamounts and submerged volcanoes are hotspots for deep-sea life because of the way they trap micronekton.

The daily back-and-forth vertical movement of fish through the water column is, by some estimates, the greatest mass migration on the planet.

Zooplankton and micronekton seem to be the leaders of the pack. Yet, despite the fact that micronekton constitute a large part of the biomass in pelagic environments, our understanding of their migratory behavior pales in comparison to zooplankton.

By actively swimming in the water column, micronekton weave an overlooked food web for ocean ecosystems around the world. By some estimates, all the micronekton in the world weighs over 10 billion metric tons, 45 times heavier than all of us humans.

However, most of what we know about these creatures dates back to the 1960s and 1970s. It’s only recently that they’ve started to receive more attention from scientists.

Micronekton can easily slip through fishing nets and therefore are not hunted commercially. That said, many species important to the fishing industry, such as tuna, are highly dependent on micronekton.

The newly discovered trapping area in the Maldives could allow scientists to learn about these overlooked organisms in a whole new way, possibly enabling better ocean conservation practices.

“It has all the characteristics of a distinct new ecosystem,” says marine biologist Alex Rogers of the University of Oxford.

“The trapping area creates an oasis of life in the Maldives and it is highly likely to exist in other oceanic islands and also on the slopes of continents.”

Unfortunately, recent climate reports suggest that some micronektons in some parts of the world, such as krill in Antarctica, are not weathering the global warming crisis well.

If they disappear, other fish, mammals and birds will likely follow.
