Top 10 Scary Japanese Urban Legends

Top 10 Scary Japanese Urban Legends
« เมื่อ: พฤษภาคม 17, 2020, 01:02:21 AM »
10. Teke-Teke


This is the Urban Legend about a girl who fell under a train and was cut in half. She became a vengeful spirit that moves using her hands and elbows, dragging herself while making the sound -Tek-Tek- … if you hear that noise, youre supposed to run. Those who are caught by the Tek Tek will recieve a fate like her - shes said to slash her victims in half so that they look like her, and possibly become wandering vengeful spirits as she is.

9. Slit Mouthed Woman


You may recognise this one from a number of Japanese movies and TV shows. The traditional name for this being is Kuchi-sake-onna and dates back over 300 years ago. She is a woman who was brutally mutilated by her husband after he found she was having an affair with another Samurai. This left her in death as a restless spirit. She is said to cover her mouth with a cloth mask, a fan or a scarf. If you approach her, shell ask you if you think shes pretty. If you answer yes, she will remove the mask and when the victim screams they will be slashed from ear to ear until they look like her. Even if you say no, shes said to follow you home and brutally murder you that night.

8. Daruma-san


This urban legend is more of an old game passed down through the years. You shower in a bath, turn off the lights and chant -Daruma-san fell down- while you wash your hair … its said that you will see a woman in your mind. She is Daruma-San. Shell be standing up in a bath. Youll see her slip and fall onto an old rusty tap. It goes straight through her eye and kills her. Then, you will feel her ghostly presence behind you. If you turn around - there she is. Black tangled hair, rotting clothes, one eye is bloodshot and the other is just a bloody, hollow eye socket. The game continues even further than that if you dare, but I think thats enough for you to understand this creepy urban legend.

7. Girl From The Gap


This Japanese story comes from peoples natural fear of what lies lurking in the cracks of a home. Do you ever see something move past the hinge of a door? Is that someone looking out from inside your wardrobe? Have you ever pictured a hand reaching out from between your bed and the floor? Well it could be the girl from the gap - a spirit that lives both physically and metaphorically -between worlds-. Its said that if you ever see her, she will ask if you want to play hide and seek. At that point the game is on. When you her between a gap again, shell drag you to an other worldly hell.

6. The Red Room


This is a very modern Japanese urban legend about a pop up ad thats red with black test. In a childs voice, it simply repeats the phrase -Do you like?-. A boy who got the popup tried to close it but it kept reappearing. Then, it changed to -Do you like red?- … he keeps trying to close it but it grows large and changes again to say -Do you like the red room?- … then, the site changes. All red and black. It has a list of names on it - his friends is at the bottom. And hand reaches out towards the boys neck from a video. tHE Ending gets even more twisted but guess what, its based on a real website. Its still out there. If you can find it, youll know the gruesome legend of the red room and if the horrible ending comes true for you.

5. The Human Pillars


This legend dates back to ancient times in Japan where its known as Hito-bashira. Back then, there was a belief that a human sacrifice sealed inside a structure would make a foundation more stable. This means that many old Japanese buildings are said to contain the spirits of the people who were sacrificed during their construction. One famous example is Matsue Castle where a woman was sealed inside the foundations during its construction. Now her spirit is said to haunt the castle and whenever a woman dances there, the castle shakes violently. Many building owners in Japan are open about their building being a Human Pillar.

4. The Snake Woman


This one comes from the old Japanese folklore pf Nure-onna which translates to wet woman. She is often described as having the head of a woman and the body of a snake - with long claws, snake eyes and jet black hair.  She carries with her a childlike bundle to lure in her victims. If a person tries to pick up the baby, they find its not a child at all. The bundle then becomes very heavy and stops the victim from fleeing. The snake woman then uses her long tongue to suck all of the blood from the victims body until they die.

3. Onibaba


She is a demon women that often appears in Japanese folk folklore. She will often appear as an old woman asking for help but if you get to close, she will slice you open with a knife and eat you. She is said to be the tormented spirit of a woman who accidently killed her pregnant daughter and unborn grandchild in an effort to find a cure for her friends child being sick. She was told to bring them the liver of an unborn child but when she finally killed her victims, she found they were her own family.

2. The Dream School


This one is extra creepy because apparently if you don't forget it within a week - it will happen to you. Lets see if this is true. One night, a boy had a dream about a school. The hallways looped forever, bringing him back to the start. Staircases led back to the first floor. As he got scared, he heard footsteps behind him. He ran until he found an emergency exit with a glass box and a key next to it. The glass had been smashed and there was a note saying it could be found in room 108. When he found that room, it was empty - no students - but there were backpacks hanging off every chair. There was a pounding on the door. He opened it, terrified, to find the hallways covered with dead children. Its said that he never woke up from his dream and if you don't forget the story in one week, youll meet the same fate. Don't worry though guys

1. Onryo


This is a traditional Japanese ghost belief about a vengeful spirt that can and will physically hurt the living. Its a very scary concept if youre only familiar with the western idea of ghosts which don't really take solid forms and so cant hurt humans with physical contact. Thats not true for an Onryo. They are vengeful and full of hate, stopping at nothing to enact the suffering they received when they were alive. For any of you guys who have seen The Grudge, this spirit is the influence for that creepy girl in that movie.

Why does the coronavirus spread so easily?
A microscopic feature could make the virus more infectious than the SARS virus.

As the number of coronavirus infections passes 100,000 worldwide, researchers are racing to understand what makes it spread so easily. A handful of genetic and structural analyses have identified a key feature of the virus — a protein on its surface —that might explain why it infects human cells much more readily than does the coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome, or SARS. Other groups are investigating the doorway through which the new coronavirus enters human tissues — a receptor on cell membranes. The cell receptor and the virus protein offer potential targets for drugs to block the pathogen, but researchers say it is too early to be sure. To infect a cell, coronaviruses use a ‘spike’ protein that binds to the cell membrane. Genomic analyses of the new coronavirus have revealed that its spike protein differs from those of close relatives, and suggest that the protein has a site that is activated by an enzyme called furin.

This is significant because furin is found in many human tissues, including the lungs, liver and small intestine, which  means that the virus has the potential to attack multiple organs, says Li Hua, a structural biologist at Huazhong University of Science and Technology in Wuhan,China, the city where the outbreak began. The finding could explain some of the symptoms observed in people with the coronavirus, such as liver failure, says Li, who co-authored a genetic analysis of the virus (H. Li et al.

Other groups have also identified the activation site as possibly enabling the virus to spread easily between humans. But some researchers are cautious about overstating the role of the site. “We don’t know if this is going to be a big deal or not,” says Jason McLellan, a structural biologist at the University of Texas at Austin, who co-authored another structural analysis

โคโรน่าไวรัส COVID-19 สิ่งที่ควรรู้และสิ่งที่ต้องทำ

ในเดือนธันวาคม 2562 ทางการจีนได้แจ้งให้ชาวโลกได้รู้ว่ามีไวรัสชนิดหนึ่งกำลังระบาดในประเทศ ไม่กี่เดือนต่อมา ไวรัสตัวนี้กระจายไปยังหลายประเทศ ยอดผู้ป่วยเพิ่มเป็นเท่าตัวภายในเวลาไม่กี่วัน ชื่อไวรัสชนิดนี้คือ โคโรนาไวรัสสายพันธุ์กลุ่มอาการทางเดินหายใจเฉียบพลันรุนแรง 2 ซึ่งก่อให้เกิดโรค COVID-19 หรือที่คนทั่วไปมักเรียกง่าย ๆ ว่าโคโรนาไวรัส จริง ๆ มันส่งผลอย่างไรกับเราหลังติดเชื้อนี้? และพวกเราควรรับมืออย่างไร?

ไวรัสเป็นเพียงสารพันธุกรรมที่ถูกหุ้ม รวมกับโปรตีนบางชนิด ไม่อาจเรียกว่าเป็นสิ่งมีชีวิตได้ด้วยซ้ำ มันสามารถขยายจำนวนได้ผ่านการเข้าสู่เซลล์ที่มีชีวิต โคโรนาสามารถแพร่กระจายผ่านพื้นผิวต่าง ๆ แต่ก็ยังไม่มีข้อมูลแน่ชัดว่ามันจะอยู่บนพื้นผิวได้นานขนาดไหน ดูเหมือนว่าช่องทางหลักของการติดต่อจะผ่านละอองที่มีคนไอ หรือตอนที่คุณจับผู้ป่วย และจับหน้าตัวเอง ขยี้ตา หรือจับจมูก ไวรัสเริ่มต้นเข้าสู่ร่างกายผ่านจุดนี้ ก่อนที่จะเข้าสู่ส่วนที่ลึกลงไป จุดหมายของพวกมันคือลำไส้ ม้าม หรือปอด ซึ่งพวกมันสร้างผลกระทบได้รุนแรงที่สุด แค่ไวรัสโคโรนาเพียงจำนวนเล็กน้อย สามารถสร้างสถานการณ์ที่ลำบากพอตัวได้เลย

ในปอดมีเซลล์เยื่อบุผิวอยู่นับพัน ๆ ล้านตัว พวกนี้เป็นเหมือนพรมแดนของร่างกายคุณคอยบุผิวอวัยวะภายในและชั้นเยื่อเมือกเอาไว้ ซึ่งกำลังจะติดเชื้อในไม่ช้า โคโรนาไวรัสจะเชื่อมต่อกับตัวรับพิเศษตัวหนึ่ง ของเยื่อหุ้มเซลล์ของเหยื่อ เพื่อแทรกซึมสารพันธุกรรมของมันเข้าไป เซลล์ซึ่งไม่รู้ตัวกับสิ่งจะที่เกิดขึ้นก็เริ่มทำตามคำสั่งง่าย ๆ ที่ได้รับมาใหม่ ก็อปปี้ และประกอบร่าง เซลล์จะเริ่มเต็มไปด้วยก็อปปี้ของไวรัสดั้งเดิมจำนวนมาก จนกระทั่งถึงจุดวิกฤติ และได้รับคำสั่งสุดท้าย ทำลายตัวเองทิ้ง เซลล์ก็จะสลายตัวเองไป ปล่อยโคโรนาชุดใหม่จำนวนมาก ซึ่งเตรียมพร้อมจะโจมตีเซลล์อื่น ๆ ต่อไป จำนวนเซลล์ที่ติดเชื้อเติบโตอย่างทวีคูณ หลังจากสิบวัน ประมาณหนึ่งล้านเซลล์จะติดเชื้อ และมีไวรัสประมาณพันล้านตัวอยู่ในปอด ไวรัสยังไม่สร้างความเสียหายมากนักจนถึงตอนนี้

แต่ตัวร้ายที่แท้จริงกำลังจะออกมา นั่นคือระบบภูมิคุ้มกันของคุณเอง ถึงระบบภูมิคุ้มกันจะมีไว้ปกป้องคุณก็ตามที แต่มันก็สามารถทำอันตรายกับตัวคุณได้เช่นกัน จึงต้องการการควบคุมอย่างเข้มงวด และระหว่างที่เซลล์ภูมิคุ้มกันหลั่งไหลเข้าไป เพื่อสู้กับไวรัส โคโรนาก็แทรกซึมไปยังเซลล์เหล่านั้น และสร้างความสับสนขึ้นมา เซลล์ไม่มีหูหรือตา พวกมันสื่อสารกัน ผ่านโปรตีนสื่อสารเล็ก ๆ ที่ชื่อว่าไซโตไคน์ ระบบภูมิคุ้มกันแทบทุกอย่างถูกไซโตไคน์ควบคุมอยู่ โคโรนาทำให้เซลล์ภูมิคุ้มกันที่ติดเชื้อทำหน้าที่เกินขอบเขต และเข้าสู่สภาวะ "ฆ่ามันให้หมด"

พูดง่าย ๆ ก็คือทำให้เซลล์ภูมิคุ้มกันคลุ้มคลั่งและส่งทหารมาเกินความจำเป็น ใช้ทรัพยากรอย่างสูญเปล่าและสร้างความเสียหายซะเอง มีเซลล์อยู่สองชนิดที่อาละวาด ตัวแรกคือนิวโทรไฟล์ ซึ่งเก่งเรื่องฆ่าฟัน ซึ่งรวมไปถึงฆ่าเซลล์ของเราเองด้วย เมื่อพวกมันมาถึงเป็นพัน ๆ ตัว พวกมันจะเริ่มหลั่งเอนไซม์ ซึ่งฆ่าพวกเดียวกันไปพอ ๆ กับที่ฆ่าศัตรู เซลล์สำคัญอีกหนึ่งชนิดที่คลุ้มคลั่ง คือเซลล์ T พิฆาต ซึ่งปกติจะออกคำสั่งให้เซลล์ที่ติดเชื้อทำการฆ่าตัวตาย แต่เมื่ออยู่ในภาวะสับสน มันก็เริ่มออกคำสั่งให้เซลล์ปกติทั่วไป ให้ฆ่าตัวตายไปด้วย ยิ่งเซลล์ภูมิคุ้มกันมากันมากเท่าไหร่ก็ยิ่งทำความเสียหายและทำลายเนื้อเยื่อปอดมากเท่านั้น นี่อาจจะเลวร้ายได้ ถึงขั้นที่สร้างความเสียหายถาวร ที่นำไปสู่ความพิการตลอดชีวิต

ในเคสส่วนใหญ่ ระบบภูมิคุ้มกันจะค่อย ๆ กู้คืนการควบคุมได้ มันจะกลับมาฆ่าเซลล์ที่ติดเชื้อ ขัดขวางไวรัสที่จะแทรกซึมเซลล์ใหม่และเก็บกวาดสมรภูมิ หลังจากนั้นเราจะเริ่มฟื้นตัวผู้ติดเชื้อโคโรนาส่วนใหญ่นั้นสามารถรอดไปได้ด้วยอาการไม่รุนแรงนัก แต่ผู้ป่วยบางรายอาจมีอาการรุนแรงถึงขั้นวิกฤติ เราก็ไม่รู้ตัวเลขที่แน่นอนเพราะยังมีผู้รอการยืนยันอีกมาก แต่เราค่อนข้างมั่นใจว่ามีผู้ป่วยรุนแรงเยอะกว่าไข้หวัดใหญ่อยู่มาก ในกลุ่มที่มีอาการรุนแรง เซลล์เยื่อบุผิวจะตายเป็นล้าน ๆ และการปกป้องปอดก็หายตามไปด้วย นั่นหมายความว่าถุงลมของเรา ถุงอากาศเล็ก ๆ ที่ทำการหายใจให้เรา สามารถติดเชื้อแบคทีเรียที่ปกติจะไม่ก่อปัญหา

คนไข้จะเริ่มมีอาการปอดบวม การหายใจจะเริ่มยากขึ้นหรือล้มเหลวไปเลย และต้องต่อเครื่องช่วยหายใจเพื่อให้รอด ระบบภูมิคุ้มกันจะสู้เต็มอัตราศึกหลายสัปดาห์ และสร้างอาวุธต่อต้านไวรัสมานับล้าน และเมื่อแบคทีเรียนับพันเรื่มเพิ่มจำนวน พวกมันก็จะชนะอย่างขาดลอย พวกมันเข้าสู่กระแสเลือดและอาละวาดไปทั่วร่างกาย ถ้าเหตุการณ์นี้เกิดขึ้น โอกาสเสียชีวิตมีสูงมาก โคโรนาไวรัสถูกเปรียบเทียบกับไข้หวัดใหญ่อยู่บ่อยครั้ง แต่จริง ๆ แล้ว มันอันตรายกว่ามาก แม้อัตราการตายจริงๆจะยังระบุชัดไม่ได้ เพราะการระบาดยังดำเนินอยู่ เรารู้แน่ชัดแล้วว่ามันติดต่อได้ง่ายมาก และแพร่กระจายเร็วกว่าไข้หวัดใหญ่มาก มันมีอนาคตอยู่สองแบบสำหรับการระบาดแบบโคโรนา คือแบบเร็ว กับแบบช้า เราจะได้เห็นอนาคตแบบไหน ก็ขึ้นอยู่กับการตอบสนองของเราเอง

ในช่วงที่การระบาดเริ่มต้น การระบาดแบบเร็วจะเลวร้ายมากและคร่าชีวิตมหาศาล ส่วนการระบาดแบบช้าอาจจะไม่ถูกบันทึกไว้ในแบบเรียนประวัติศาสตร์ กรณีเลวร้ายสุด ๆ สำหรับการระบาดแบบเร็ว เริ่มมาจากการที่มีผู้ติดเชื้อจำนวนมาก ๆ ในเวลาอันสั้น เพราะไม่มีมาตรการป้องกัน ที่ทำให้การติดเชื้อลดน้อยลง ทำไมมันถึงแย่นักน่ะหรือ ในการระบาดแบบเร็ว มีคนป่วยจำนวนมากในเวลาเดียวกัน ถ้าจำนวนมีมากเกินไปแล้ว ระบบสาธารณสุขจะไม่สามารถรับมือไหว ทรัพยากรบางอย่าง เช่นเจ้าหน้าที่ หรือเครื่องช่วยหายใจ จะมีไม่พอสำหรับทุก ๆ คน ผู้คนจะตายโดยไม่ได้รับการรักษา และเมื่อเจ้าหน้าที่แพทย์เริ่มป่วยซะเอง ขีดความสามารถในการรักษาก็จะลดน้อยลงไปอีก

ถ้ามันเกิดขึ้นจริง เราจะเจอเหตุการณ์ที่จะต้องเลือกว่าคนไหนจะได้อยู่รอด และคนไหนจะถูกปล่อยให้ตาย ยอดผู้เสียชีวิตจะเพิ่มอย่างมีนัยสำคัญ ในการระบาดแบบเร็วนี้ เพื่อหลีกเลี่ยงไม่ให้เป็นแบบนั้น โลกนี้ ซึ่งก็คือพวกเราทุก ๆ คน ต้องทำทุกอย่างที่ทำได้เพื่อให้การระบาดเป็นแบบช้า การระบาดจะช้าลงได้ด้วยการรับมือที่ถูกต้อง โดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งในระยะแรก เพื่อที่ผู้ป่วยทุกคนจะได้รับการรักษา และจะไม่มีช่วงเวลาที่โรงพยาบาลมีผู้ป่วยล้นเกิดขึ้น และเพราะเรายังไม่มีวัคซีนสำหรับโคโรนา เราจะต้องปรับเปลี่ยนพฤติกรรมของเราเพื่อเป็นเสมือนวัคซีนทางสังคมเพื่อป้องกันโรค

อธิบายง่าย ๆ คือทำแค่สองอย่างนี้ ไม่ทำตัวให้ติดเชื้อ และไม่ทำให้คนอื่นติดเชื้อ ถึงมันจะฟังดูเล็กน้อย แต่สิ่งที่ดีที่สุดที่สำหรับคุณคือการล้างมือ จริง ๆ แล้วสบู่เป็นเครื่องมือที่ทรงพลังมาก โคโรนาไวรัสถูกหุ้มด้วยสิ่งที่เปลือกที่มีองค์ประกอบเป็นไขมัน สบู่จะทำลายชั้นไขมันนั้น และทำให้ไวรัสไม่สามารถติดคุณได้ นอกจากนี้สบู่ยังทำให้มือลื่น และจากการเคลื่อนไหวขณะล้างมือ ไวรัสก็ถูกชะล้างออกจนหมด ถ้าจะทำให้ถูกจริง ๆ จงล้างมือคุณให้เหมือน คุณเพิ่งหั่นพริกขี้หนูมา และกำลังจะใส่คอนแทคเลนส์ต่อ

ต่อไปคือการเว้นระยะทางสังคม ซึ่งไม่ใช่สิ่งที่รื่นรมย์นัก แต่เป็นสิ่งที่ควรจะทำ นี่หมายถึง ไม่กอดกัน ไม่จับมือเชคแฮนด์ ถ้าคุณอยู่บ้านได้ ก็อยู่ซะ เพื่อให้คนที่จำเป็นต้องอยู่นอกบ้าน ได้ขับเคลื่อนให้สังคมดำเนินต่อไปได้ ตั้งแต่หมอ พนักงานแคชเชียร์ จนถึงเจ้าหน้าที่ตำรวจ คุณต้องพึ่งพาพวกเขา เขาก็ต้องพึ่งพาพวกคุณ ให้คุณไม่ป่วย ในระดับที่ใหญ่ขึ้น มีเรื่องการกักกัน ซึ่งหมายความหลายอย่าง ตั้งแต่ห้ามเดินทาง จนถึงออกคำสั่งให้อยู่แต่บ้านไปเลย การกักกันไม่ใช่ประสบการณ์ที่ดีนัก และก็ไม่ได้เป็นที่ชื่นชอบอย่างแน่นอน แต่มันช่วยซื้อเวลาให้เรา และโดยเฉพาะอย่างยิ่งให้ผู้ที่กำลังวิจัยยารักษาและวัคซีน เพราะฉะนั้นถ้าคุณถูกกักกัน คุณควรจะเข้าใจว่าทำไม และเคารพและยอมรับในเหตุผลเหล่านั้น

ทั้งหมดนี่ไม่มีอะไรสนุกหรอก แต่เมื่อมองภาพที่กว้างขึ้นมันเป็นราคาที่ถูกมากที่จะจ่าย คำถามที่ว่าการระบาดนี้จะจบแบบไหน ขึ้นอยู่กับว่าเริ่มยังไง ถ้ามันเริ่มเร็วและชันมาก มันจะจบอย่างเลวร้ายสุด ๆ แต่ถ้ามันเริ่มช้าและไม่ชันมากนัก มันก็จะจบแบบ...พอโอเค และในเวลานี้ ทั้งหมดมันอยู่ในมือเรา ทั้งเปรียบเปรย และทั้งในมือเราจริง ๆ ต้องขอขอบคุณเป็นอย่างมากสำหรับผู้เชี่ยวชาญ ที่ช่วยเหลือเราทั้งที่แจ้งไปกะทันหัน โดยเฉพาะ Our World In Data สื่อสิ่งพิมพ์ออนไลน์สำหรับ ปัญหาที่ใหญ่ที่สุดในโลก และความคืบหน้าในการแก้พวกมัน ลองดูเว็บพวกเขาสิ พวกเขามีหน้าเว็บที่อัพเดตอย่างต่อเนื่องเกี่ยวกับการติดเชื้อโคโรนาด้วยนะ

5 best North American skiing: From major resorts to quirky diversions
1. Whistler Blackcomb, British Columbia


Though it’s enormous and known by skiers the world over, Whistler Blackcomb somehow still feels “intensely spiritual,” said Susan Reifer in Ski magazine. The resort’s two main mountains are surrounded by glaciers and “alpine lakes so vivid they look like something from a dream.” By many measures, Whistler is North America’s largest mountain resort, sprawling over 8,171 snow-covered acres. Whistler Village meets the demands of its diverse visitors with spas, restaurants, and hotels that appeal to “yogic meditators and hedonists alike.” Of course, the slopes are the main draw here, and some of the best snow is found away from the most wellcarved runs. Somehow, developing a familiarity with the terrain here “transforms a person—even one who is not naturally gifted—into the most capable of skiers.”

2. Banff National Park, Alberta
A trio of resorts in Alberta offers a pleasingly laid-back take on Canadian skiing, said Christopher Reynolds in the Los Angeles Times. Unlike the far livelier scene 10 hours west at Whistler, the resorts Sunshine Village, Lake Louise, and Norquay offer stellar slope experiences without the bustle. Stunning peaks line the horizon in Banff National Park, where the three resorts feature a combined 8,000 skiable acres. About 4,200 of these are at  Lake Louise Ski Resort. While making your way up the Glacier Express chairlift to one of the more than 145 runs there, you can take in a view of the valley and spot skaters on Lake Louise, a partially frozen lake sitting under a glacier. An apr?s-ski scene in the town of Banff provides a chance to warm up, as do nearby hot springs.

3. Silverton Mountain, Colorado
The old-school, roughing-it conditions at Silverton keep “the soul of skiing” alive, said Christopher Steiner in Forbes.com. At 13,487 feet, Silverton Mountain is North America’s tallest ski peak and has no cut trails. A retired school bus pushed up against the snowpack serves as the mountain’s rental shop, and the base lodge consists of little more than a large pole tent with a wood-burning stove. Yet a range of skiers from “ski bum bros” to hedge fund managers takes advantage of the 1,819 acres of skiable terrain accessible by a single chairlift. Skiers also use the resort’s helicopter access to 22,000 more acres of raw slopes. The base lodge offers beer on tap, but more drinking options—as well as modern dining and lodging—are available only six miles away in the historic mining town of Silverton.

4. Jackson Hole, Wyoming


Jackson Hole is a resort that attracts hardcore skiers who want to “challenge and scare themselves,” said Dina Mishev in The Washington Post. It continues to offer some of the stiffest tests a skier can find in America, but the resort is also evolving to expand its appeal. New lifts added over the years have made some intermediate terrain more accessible, while existing trails have been improved and widened. Visitors may bump into celebrities in Teton Village, but the real thrills are on the 116 named ski trails and “a 3,000-acre experts-only playground of unpatrolled, ungroomed, uncontrolled terrain.” For advanced skiers, nothing matches the bowls, glades, and chutes of Rendezvous Mountain. On Rendezvous’s steep side-country couloirs, “falling is not an option.”

5. Marquette, Michigan


Many winter enthusiasts in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula enjoy snow without skis, thanks to “fat bikes,” said Melanie D.G. Kaplan in The Washington Post. “A cousin of the mountain bike,” a fat bike has tires about twice as wide as its relative, and with about one-third the air pressure. “The ride is steady and slow,” but the special gear allows for better control on snow. “Beginners and experts alike can’t help but wear a grin” when fat biking, and the fad has spread from its birthplace in Alaska all across the country. Marquette recently expanded its Noquemanon Trail Network, a hot spot for cross-country skiing, to include a 15-mile snow-bike trail that’s considered one of the best in the country. Not that you don’t have other options: “If you’re headed somewhere snowy this winter, chances are you’ll find fat-bike rentals.”

Berlin, 25 years after the Wall
A quarter century of freedom has done a number on the Berlin I once knew, said Zofia Smardz in The Washington Post. Back in the 1980s, West Berlin was “an island of freedom in a communist sea” and East Berlin “a forbidding fortress of a place, gray and lifeless.” But then the Wall that seemed as if it would last forever came tumbling down, the Cold War standoff between the Soviet Union and the West ended, and the “chic and fashionable” Berlin I loved busted loose. With the 25th anniversary of the Wall’s fall approaching, I decided to go back, landing in a Berlin that’s vigorously erasing its old dividing lines. Today, “it’s all one big, sprawling city—open and free and exhilarating.”


Of course, remnants of the Wall remain. What I find at Checkpoint Charlie shocks me: Near a replica of the guard booth where American MPs once checked the papers of people hoping to pass between West and East, tourists flood souvenir shops while actors in military garb pose for photos at $3 a shot. Boisterous street signs advertise curry sausage shops, while a couple of tiny, neon-painted cars drive by, honking. An “air of revelry” enlivens this display of “capitalism with a capital C”—and “I love it.” A Wall memorial on Bernauer Strasse offers a more sobering experience, though I spot some girls doing cartwheels nearby as I walk along a row of metal rods indicating the Wall’s route.

The spirit of giddy renewal feels especially strong in the Mitte district, “the formerly forlorn heart of Berlin.” Deluxe hotels and other towers are rising, and a “glitzy” restaurant now sits on the roof of the Reichstag, the 19th-century parliamentary building that sat largely abandoned throughout the Cold War. After dinner there, my husband and I stroll the spiraling walkway inside the building’s large glass dome and admire the Brandenburg Gate below. Berliners can now casually wander through the gate, but I’m sure the young international crowd I see rarely ponders how amazing that is. “That whole East-West thing? So 25 years ago.”

Wandering storybook Dubrovnik
The Croatian city of Dubrovnik “excels at playing versions of itself,” said Davin O’Dwyer in The Washington Post. Located on a “spectacular” stretch of the Dalmatian coast, the so-called Pearl of the Adriatic has been so fastidiously repaired since the bombardment it suffered during the 1990s’ Croatian War of Independence that you’d need a guide to spot the damage. Recently, Dubrovnik’s walled Old City has gained millions of new admirers by filling a featured role in the hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones. “A perfect real-world substitute” for the capital of Westeros, the latemedieval city core is “a town-size living museum”—and a true architectural marvel.


The Old City’s main thoroughfare, the Stradun, struck me as “one of the most perfectly proportioned streets I’ve ever walked along.” The wall’s main gates lie at either end, and the gates’ adjoining bell towers “act as visual exclamation points book-ending the gleaming stone pavement and the cream-colored buildings in between.” Narrow lanes branch off that central spine, leading up or down flights of stairs that “keep framing the city in stunning vertical shafts”—creating postcard views of a cathedral’s dome, say, or of stacked terra-cotta rooftops. Even so, the Old City’s “most breathtaking attraction” has to be the mile-and-a-quarter-long walkway atop the wall that rings it. “The finest view of all” came where the wall meets the Minceta tower and “the collage” of bell towers and red rooftops was set against the sea beyond.

The revival of the Old City and its global embrace have pushed out many longtime residents, and that thought was playing on my mind when I returned to the Stradun on my last day. At Orlando’s Column, a monument to a Norman knight, a large group of men dressed like medieval guards surrounded a chained prisoner who seemed to have been badly beaten. But then a director yelled, “Cut!” and I was struck by the notion that Dubrovnik is particularly good at offering the illusion that past and present, reality and fiction, can coexist in one place. “It’s an illusion, in truth, that I didn’t want to end.”

A Cuban town barely touched by the 20th century
Trinidad, Cuba, is a place that time has “blessedly” passed by, said Linda Mack in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. A frequent stop on guided tours of the island nation, this town of 60,000 was built on sugar money and slave labor, but more than 1,000 of its colonial-era buildings remain intact, and its historic center feels “far from fossilized.” Walking its ankletwisting cobblestone streets recently, I was surrounded by one-story 18th- and 19th-century houses occupied by multigenerational families and spilling with life. “Doorways opened to restaurants and bars and the music that is everywhere in Cuba.” Loosened restrictions on U.S. travel to communist Cuba have slightly increased the presence of American tourists in Trinidad, but it remains a world apart. On its narrow streets, automobiles are outnumbered by horse-drawn carts.


Our group arrived shortly before sunset one day, after a long bus ride through mostly unpopulated countryside. Trinidad is set back from the sea against the Escambray Mountains, and we enjoyed mojitos on the terrace of our state-run resort before descending the dark cobblestone street into town. At Casa de la M?sica, one of three venues that offer music nightly, we joined locals spread among open-air bistro tables to listen to salsa and watch a fire-eater. Some of the town’s old villas, we later discovered house the private restaurants called paladares, which have become Cuba’s hottest attraction. A highlight of our stay was a dinner at Sol Ananda Paladar, a restored 1750s villa where chandeliers of varying styles hang from wood beams and a bongo-playing female singer and her three-guitar band played a great set while we ate.

Fourteen thousand slaves once worked in the region outside town known as the Valley of the Sugar Mills, but their owners lived luxuriously in town. Many of their villas are now museums, including one focused on archaeology and another on the decorative arts. The Municipal History Museum is “even more sumptuous.” Its many rooms enclose a large courtyard, and a three-story tower offers panoramic views across the city’s roofs toward the distant ocean and the nearby mountains.

Kerala, India—‘God’s Own Country’
In most any other corner of the world, local inhabitants couldn’t invoke a slogan like the one above without sounding “unbearably self-satisfied,” said Davin O’Dwyer in The Washington Post. But Kerala, the state that hugs the southwest coast of the Indian peninsula, is beautiful enough to wear the label comfortably, especially given the variety of religious communities that share and embrace the land. Hindus, Muslims, Christians, and even some Jains peacefully coexist here, as is apparent in “the busy juxtaposition of towers, minarets, and spires that sit cheek by jowl in every city, town, and village.” Though each vista offers a new variation on lush green, the landscape of Kerala is otherwise “as diverse as its people”—encompassing stunning beaches, a lacework of backwater canals, and the “glorious” hillside tea plantations of the Western Ghats.


After a short stay in Fort Kochi, a quaint heritage city, my girlfriend and I journeyed to Eravikulam National Park to soak in an unrivaled view of the state’s rolling western countryside. Anaimudi mountain, a forbidding peak whose name means “Elephant Head,” loomed to one side as we looked out on the tea plantations arrayed below us. Near the hill-station town of Munnar, the tea bushes “cling to the hills like a soft emerald carpet,” while paths created for the pickers cut patterned grooves—“as if some god-like cartographer had inked contour lines on the mountain slopes.”

We took an overnight cruise along the Malabar Coast before enjoying “one of the quintessential Kerala experiences”—a slow voyage in a kettuvallam, or thatched houseboat, through the canals and rivers that crosshatch a vast expanse of emerald-green rice paddies. Pretty cottages and churches often lined the way, and children at play stopped their games to wave to us. Once, when we paused for lunch, we watched a duck herder in a canoe using a long stick to expertly chaperone hundreds of waterfowl toward the riverbank. The entire excursion was so serene that it wove “a kind of meditative spell, like a deep-tissue massage for the soul.”

Hawaii’s own undeveloped island
Across most of Lanai, Hawaii, “there is barely a swaying palm tree, beach umbrella, sparkling pool, or splash of tropical color” to be seen, said Adam Nagourney in The New York Times. Though the island is being made over by its new billionaire owner, Larry Ellison, it now offers mostly a raw, arid beauty, plus evidence of its long history as a pineapple plantation. Ellison dreams of transforming the island into “a laboratory of sustainability,” with its own multicrop farms, desalination plants, and even a university. Two Four Seasons resorts already offer the chance to experience a luxury Lanai. But you can also rent a Jeep or four-wheeler and head off on the “bone-jarring” dirt roads to find your beaches and bluffs. Some of Lanai’s best snorkeling can be found near the ruins of a temple in the waters below an 80-foot cliff known as Kahekili’s Leap. Off Shipwreck Beach, the waves still beat up against the “rusted hulk of a Navy destroyer.”

Iowa’s ‘Little Denmark’
If only Christian Jensen could see what he started, said Andrea Sachs in The Washington Post. In 1868, the Danish immigrant and his family became the first settlers of Elk Horn, Iowa, a village that’s now the largest rural Danish settlement in the United States. A good half of Elk Horn’s 650 residents claim Danish descent, and they show their pride by flying Danish flags on Main Street and maintaining two heritage museums. One is housed in a 60-foot-tall windmill built in Denmark in 1848 and rescued by town residents in the 1970s. Nearby Kimballton is the other half of “Lille Denmark,” and is home to a sculpture garden featuring characters from Hans Christian Andersen’s stories. For a taste of Scandinavia, stop into Elk Horn’s Danish Inn, where many of the specialties are “brown, meaty, and unpronounceable.” For many Danish tourists, it’s just like home—except that the nearest ocean is half a continent away.

Cycling the Natchez Trace
The Natchez Trace is a much more pleasant corridor to travel than it was 200 years ago, said Melanie Radzicki McManus in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. Back when the old Indian trail served as a major trade route for our fledgling nation, heat, swarming insects, and packs of bandits made traveling the Trace so perilous that it was known as the “Devil’s Backbone.” But all 444 miles from Natchez, Miss., to Nashville are now a National Scenic Byway, and my husband and I have only fond memories after pedaling the entire length last fall. Our first day took us past a 35-foot Indian mound and the Trace’s only remaining 18th-century inn, and the next few days rolled by “in a kaleidoscope of vivid colors, sounds, and smells.” Gorgeous as the landscape was, what delighted us most were various “quirky and unexpected” happenings—like being passed by a pack of gleaming Corvettes driven by smiling senior citizens.

A World’s Fair at 50
If you go looking for remnants of the 1964 World’s Fair, bring your imagination, said Beth J. Harpaz in the Associated Press. Intriguing relics of the event still grace Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, N.Y., but visiting the area today is “as much about 21st-century Queens as it is a walk down memory lane.” A half-hour ride from midtown Manhattan on the 7 train brings into view a few World’s Fair icons: a “stupendous” 12-story steel globe, the flying-saucer towers of the long-shuttered New York Pavilion, and two NASA rocket ships that stand in front of the New York Hall of Science. An October reopening is scheduled for that museum’s “otherworldly” Great Hall. Until then, nostalgia seekers might be best advised to enjoy today’s park amenities and let the Fair relics—like the carousel outside the Queens Zoo and the scale model of New York City housed at the Queens Museum—pop up where they may.

Road tripping through Vermont
“Few road trips warm me like a drive through Vermont,” said Joe Crea in the Cleveland Plain Dealer. Leaf peepers sing the praises of the state’s autumn foliage, when hillsides turn “calico in Technicolor splendor.” But any season is “a glorious time to visit,” as I was reminded this summer when my wife and I made a freespirited loop through the state’s western half. After wandering around Bennington, a picturesque college town, we drove narrow roads past hypnotizing streams and through lush, green forests as we headed north. “Postcard-perfect, steeple-spiked villages” inspired regular stops, and we dawdled, too, in “more luxe than ever” Stowe and in Montpelier, the “rough-hewn” capital. On our leisurely drive south from Burlington, the well-stocked Vermont Country Store in Weston provided another light diversion. “Every one of us has his or her Vermont. Go there. It’s a beautiful place.”

A shrine to swimming in South Florida
Fort Lauderdale’s International Swimming Hall of Fame offers plenty to dive into, said Robin Soslow in The Washington Post. Entering the wave-shaped building a block from the beach, I expected to see plenty of photos and medals. But for the next couple of hours, “it’s the surprises that anchor me.” Who knew the two-piece bathing suit was invented by a woman who used it while crossing the English Channel in 1926 or that Benjamin Franklin was such an athlete? Screen idols like Johnny Weissmuller enjoy tributes, and there’s even a short film breaking down how Rodney Dangerfield executed a “Triple Lindy” dive in the 1986 comedy Back to School. “Somber subjects get equal time,” though, and the history lessons stretch back centuries. Later, I spot a plaque outside that honors protesters whose 1961 “wade-ins” desegregated Fort Lauderdale’s beaches. The marker “adds to this swimming pantheon’s depths.”

Zip-lining through wine country
“Small town” hardly begins to describe Santa Margarita, Calif., said Jackie Burrell in the Contra Costa Times. But “there’s always been something special” about this sleepy burg, starting with the way wine grapes have flourished here since Spanish missionaries planted the first cuttings in 1787. Perched atop the Cuesta Grade near San Luis Obispo, the town has only one bar and one restaurant open past dark, but the first is an 1858 saloon where Willie Nelson has performed, and the second is an “unbelievably” good steakhouse. Still, “the vines are the thing,” and there are multiple ways to enjoy them. On a vineyard tour, we learned that the bears that roam the area never touch 15 of the 16 varieties grown there. “Bears are wine snobs,” said our guide. “They only eat pinot.” We hit some tasting rooms, too. But that was my reward for surviving the day’s big thrill: soaring over those famous vineyards on an 1,800-foot-long zip line.

An Oregon town’s boozy renaissance
Bend, Ore., has made a remarkable comeback, largely on the back of beer, said Diane Bair and Pamela Wright in The Boston Globe. This city of 80,000, located on the eastern edge of the Cascades, offers gorgeous scenery and abundant outdoor recreation, yet it fell on hard times when the local timber industry shut down. We began a recent visit where the renaissance started: Deschutes Brewery, which since its 1988 founding has spawned 10 other local craft breweries and become a national powerhouse. But “Beer Town USA” isn’t a one-industry locale, having recently been named by Entrepreneur magazine as the most entrepreneurial city in the country. Boutiques and trendy restaurants line downtown streets located just steps from a protected river and 20 minutes from the bike trails and ski slopes of Mount Bachelor. A can-do attitude permeates Bend—“one of the coolest and most eclectic mountain towns in the country.”

Daytona Beach’s easygoing neighbor
About half an hour south of party-friendly Daytona Beach lies “an unspoiled gem as quiet as the morning sunrise over the Atlantic,” said Jim Abbott in the Orlando Sentinel. In Florida’s New Smyrna Beach, the scene is decidedly laid-back. West of the Intracoastal Waterway lies the mainland Canal Street Historic District, an area rich in such nonbeach attractions as galleries, antique shops, and a history museum. Near the beach, on pedestrian-friendly Flagler Avenue, “the diversions range from touristy souvenir shops to homegrown businesses that cater to the whimsical and the practical.” Pick up a rental surfboard before strolling toward the sound of the ocean and the 13 miles of white-sand beach that remain the town’s main draw. To the south, the pristine Canaveral National Seashore is shared by 310 bird species; to the north, a pet-friendly 2-mile boardwalk offers water views in both directions. Best of all, there’s much beach in between.

Thoreau’s storied hometown
Concord, Mass., is rich in history, but it rewards those who approach it the way I imagine Henry David Thoreau did, said Nancy Shohet West in The Boston Globe. Thoreau wrote Walden while living in Concord, of course, and you can swim in Walden Pond or stroll the path around it and visit a replica of his cabin. Which suits me: “When it comes to sightseeing, I am at heart an 8-year-old” who would rather ride my bike, wander the woods,” or eat ice cream on Main Street than seek out exhibits about the Transcendentalists or the first battle of the Revolutionary War. That works here. Tour guides lead bike tours to the historic sites, and you can reach them by river after renting kayaks on Main Street. And even I’m not above being delighted by a chance encounter with a historical artifact—like wandering into the Concord Free Public Library and discovering manuscript pages from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women.

The Alamo, still larger than life
Yes, the Alamo is “worth remembering—and maybe some rethinking, too,” said Christopher Reynolds in the Los Angeles Times. The mission house turned garrison in San Antonio might be Texas’s most famous building, a fact that made me think it would be larger. It was in this small compound, now dwarfed by surrounding buildings, that a band of about 200 American rebels died in 1836 battling for Texas sovereignty against a Mexican army numbering from 1,800 to 6,000. Davy Crockett and Jim Bowie were among the rebels, and their valor made them national icons—while the Alamo itself became “a symbol of doomed bravery.” Guests now wander through the building, admiring Crockett’s vest or Jim Bowie’s knife or reflecting in the “welltended” garden outside. As I stood inside the shrine’s frail walls, imagining the carnage and heroism that once occurred there, the Alamo “didn’t look so small after all.”

Harvard’s reimagined museums
After six long years, Boston’s overhauled Harvard Art Museums have finally opened, said Holland Cotter in The New York Times. A recent renovation has combined “three very different museums”—the Fogg, the Busch-Reisinger, and the Arthur M. Sackler. Now bunched together at the site of the old Fogg, the museums maintain the old building’s fa?ade and courtyard, but “nearly everything else is new.” Celebrated architect Renzo Piano expanded the space and capped the addition off with a “clunky” pyramid roof. His interiors work better: Though the Asian galleries feel cramped and the Early Italian Renaissance gallery is too open, the enlarged facility “feels like a new space rather than just a tinkered-with old space,” and it retains various classical touches. Naturally, the art is the real draw, including works by van Gogh and Picasso, as well as a stunning 8th-century Buddha chiseled from the sandstone wall of a Chinese cave.

The ‘best town’ in America
A love of nature and an entrepreneurial spirit helped Duluth, Minn., earn Outside magazine’s “best town ever” honors this year, said Stephanie Pearson in Outside. Located on the western edge of Lake Superior, the city offers 6,834 acres of park space, 178 miles of hiking trails, 16 trout streams, and skiing on nearby Spirit Mountain. The city isn’t stopping there. Once Duluth Traverse reaches its 100-mile completion target, the in-progress project will be “one of the largest urban mountain-bike trail systems in the world.” Duluth even hired an “outdoor czar” to further boost activities. This love of the land carries over into businesses like spirit manufacturer Vikre Distillery and beermaker Bent Paddle Brewing Co., both of which use water from Lake Superior in their products. But it’s the passion of the citizens that really makes the city stand out. As Mayor Don Ness recently said, “In Duluth, you know you’re alive.”

California’s overlooked volcano park
Lassen Volcanic National Park is simply “unmatched in the park system,” said Rosemary McClure in the Los Angeles Times. The landscape features “clear alpine lakes and quiet meadows full of wildflowers, and ground that bubbles, hisses, and smokes from volcanic activity.” Indeed, this park located about three hours north of Sacramento lays claim to fumaroles, lava beds, steaming water—all thanks to magma flowing beneath the surface. There’s even an active, 10,500-foot volcano, Lassen Peak. Though I enjoyed these intense sights during a recent visit, I also found calmer pleasures. I took a sunset walk around Manzanita Lake, saw stunning views of the Cascade Range, and walked through a meadow “as a parade of ducklings marched by.” Curiously, Lassen is expected to attract only 400,000 tourists this summer, compared with the nearly 4 million Yosemite will draw. But that’s just another of Lassen’s many upsides: no crowds.

Dolphin-watching in Florida
Few places offer better dolphin-spotting than Florida’s Marco Island, said Marjie Lambert in The Miami Herald. Many visitors come for the “sweet crescent of sand” on the island’s gulf-side coast, which is lined with hotels and condos. Others come for the canoeing or kayaking, or to scour the sandbars for seashells. The shops of Naples are just 15 minutes north, and Marco Island offers a more relaxed atmosphere for a waterfront dinner when the shopping’s done. I, for one, most enjoy taking a boat tour from the island aboard the Dolphin Explorer, a 30-foot catamaran whose team of biologists can identify 200 local dolphins by the notches in their dorsal fins. The last time I joined the three-hour excursion, we spotted a bald eagle chasing an osprey and a great white egret snatching fish from the waves before we encountered the ultimate dolphin-watching experience: Seeing a mother teach her newborn how to swim.

California’s redwood giants
Standing beneath a redwood, you “feel belittled in the best possible way,” said Christopher Reynolds in the Los Angeles Times. I recently made a pilgrimage to see the tallest trees in the world, driving north from Leggett, Calif., and plunging into the forest at multiple stops. Leggett’s famous Drive-Thru Tree, a 315-foot redwood, provided a gateway to the string of national and state parks ahead. Wherever you wander amid old growth, you “consider the centuries towering above you.” But my favorite moment came at Founders Grove, where I hiked half a mile to see the Dyerville Giant, a 360-foot redwood that was 2,000 years old when it fell in 1991. A “graveyard hush” surrounded the prone behemoth as I walked its length from tip to roots. From its lower trunk, though, was growing a new redwood already 10 feet tall. “Who knows? With 2,000 years and a little luck, the new giant might surpass the old.”

Paris
Leftists quit: France’s economy minister and two other leftists quit the government this week, saying President Fran?ois Hollande was rigidly adhering to “absurd” austerity policies that hurt workers. Hollande’s budget, enacted earlier this year, slashed spending deeply, cutting into social benefits and leaving most French people worse off. The economy has been stagnant for months. French Prime Minister Manuel Valls quickly named cabinet replacements from the pro-business wing of the Socialist Party. “We must create wealth, and we must cut our deficits,” Valls said. “France has been living beyond its means for 40 years.” With unemployment still soaring, Hollande’s approval rating is 17 percent, a record low for a French president.

Mexico City
Spot the migrants: Mexico has announced it will start using satellite imagery to monitor the trains that carry Central American migrants north from Guatemala to the U.S. border. Migrants often climb on top of cargo trains, known as “the Beast,” to travel across Mexico, and many are injured falling off. The interior ministry said satellite-monitored vehicles would begin accompanying the trains to check for track damage and illegal passengers. If the tracks can be maintained well enough, the lumbering cargo trains will be able to pick up enough speed to prevent people from clinging to the top or sides.

Mexico City
New police force: Mexican President Enrique Pe?a Nieto has finally created the new police force he promised during his 2012 election campaign, but it is much smaller than expected. Pe?a Nieto had pledged a new force of 50,000 highly trained officers to protect key industries from the drug cartels that routinely extort money or kidnap managers and workers. That contingent was supposed to replace the army troops who have been leading the fight against cartels, because local police—who are often on the gangs’ payroll—cannot be trusted. But the squad announced last week is just 5,000 strong and will be organized as a unit of the existing federal police. The country has failed to “define a police model that is modern, professional, and democratic,” said security expert Ernesto L?pez Portillo.

Caracas, Venezuela
Food rationing: Basic goods are now so scarce in Venezuela that the government is installing fingerprint scanners in supermarkets for a new food-rationing system. Starting next year, shoppers will not be allowed to buy bulk quantities of items such as cooking oil, flour, sugar, and toilet paper. Leftist President Nicol?s Maduro blames the scarcity on smugglers and a Western conspiracy, while economists say price controls that discourage production and subsidies that encourage a black market are responsible. Opposition leader Henrique Capriles Radonski called on Venezuelans to protest the rationing, asking, “Why should Nicol?s decide if you eat beef or chicken?”

Rotherham, U.K.
Rape ring exposed: Gangs of Pakistani men raped and trafficked at least 1,400 mostly white teen and tween girls for years in the English city of Rotherham, and authorities turned a blind eye, according to an explosive report released this week. Girls as young as 11 were given liquor and groomed for sex by a man who posed as a boyfriend, and then they were gang-raped and passed around from group to group. Over the past 16 years, the investigation found, local authorities and police ignored repeated reports of the abuse from social workers and victims. Some officials feared being called racist if they investigated a Pakistani sex ring, while others labeled the working-class girls as runaways who agreed to sex. This is the fourth inquiry since 2002 to have identified Rotherham as a hub of child trafficking, but officials refused to believe the other three reports.

Bogot?, Colombia
Hit man walks: Colombia’s most famous hit man has been released early from prison. John Jairo “Popeye” Vel?squez, who has served 22 years of his 30-year sentence, was the top henchman of late Colombian drug kingpin Pablo Escobar. Vel?squez confessed to killing some 300 people personally and said he helped arrange thousands more murders in the 1980s and ’90s, including the murder of a presidential candidate. He was able to negotiate a plea bargain by fingering the politician who ordered that hit. Vel?squez, 52, says he believes he has an 80 percent chance of being killed by former rivals now that he’s out and that he may try to move abroad.

Moscow
Sanctions bite: Russia is heading for recession, thanks to the sanctions the West imposed on it over aggression in Ukraine and the ban on Western-food imports that Russia announced in response. The government wants domestic companies to increase production to make up for the lost Western goods, but they need bank loans to do that, and sanctions have severely hampered the ability of Russian banks to lend money. The farm industry alone needs $18 billion in investment if it is to meet Russian consumers’ needs. “The economy is close to recession,” said Oleg Zasov, head of forecasting at the economy ministry.

Gwoza, Nigeria
Caliphate declared: Boko Haram militants say they have made the town of Gwoza part of the Islamic caliphate. “Thanks be to Allah who gave victory to our brethren in Gwoza and made it part of the Islamic caliphate,” Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau said in a video released this week. Shekau has praised ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in the past, but it’s unclear whether he was joining al-Baghdadi’s caliphate or declaring his own. Boko Haram now controls much of northeast Nigeria. “The situation has gone beyond #BringBackOurGirls,” said the Nigerian newspaper Vanguard. “We are now faced with the national emergency and task to #BringBackOurNation.”

Kabul
Abdullah rebels: The validity of Afghanistan’s presidential recount is in doubt after Abdullah Abdullah pulled his observers out, saying the United Nations process was not invalidating enough fraudulent votes. Abdullah, a former foreign minister, came in first in the April vote, taking just under the 50 percent needed for an outright victory. Ashraf Ghani, a former finance minister close to the family of President Hamid Karzai, was proclaimed winner in the June runoff, but Abdullah charged massive ballot stuffing, and both sides agreed to participate in an audit. After Abdullah pulled out, the U.N. ejected Ghani’s observers as well and said the audit would proceed. Analysts fear a prolonged dispute could tip the country back into civil war and divert forces from fighting the Taliban insurgency.

Aleppo, Syria
American jihadist killed: A Midwest man has become the first American known to have died fighting for ISIS in Syria. Douglas McCain, 33, born in Illinois and raised in Minnesota, converted from Christianity to Islam in his 20s. In high school, he was close friends with another American jihadist, Troy Kastigar, who died in Somalia fighting with al-Shabab militants. McCain’s uncle Ken McCain described him as “a good person, loved his family, loved his mother” and said the family was horrified to hear he had joined ISIS. The State Department estimates that up to 100 Americans are fighting in various militant groups in Syria.

Hainan, China
Near miss: China has asked the U.S. to stop flying spy planes close to its territory after a near collision in the air. Last week, a Chinese plane almost crashed into a U.S. Navy patrol plane over international waters about 100 miles from Hainan Island. The Pentagon said the Chinese fighter flew within 20 feet of the spy plane and did a barrel roll to show off its weapons; China said its jet stayed at a safe distance. The encounter raised fears of a repeat of a 2001 incident when a Chinese fighter jet collided with a U.S. surveillance plane in the same area. The Chinese pilot died, while the U.S. crew of 24 was held captive on Hainan for 10 days. Chinese Col. Yang Yujun said U.S. surveillance flights, not Chinese monitoring of them, would be “the root cause behind any accidents.”

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Surge in beheadings: Saudi authorities beheaded at least 23 people in August, including several convicted of low-level drug possession and one convicted of sorcery. Amnesty International said many sentences were based on confessions extracted through torture. “The use of the death penalty in Saudi Arabia is so far removed from any kind of legal parameters that it is almost hard to believe,” said Amnesty’s Said Boumedouha. Capital offenses include adultery, robbery, blasphemy, drug smuggling, rape, and witchcraft.

5 Tips to Prepare for Your Property Settlement


1. Insurance


Haven't organised insurance yet? Get it now! It can be a risky practice to rely on the vendor's  insurance cover (or lack thereof) if something happens to the property during the period from exchange to settlement. Having adequate insurance in place will give you peace of mind.

2. Keys, codes and passes


Make sure you organise who has the keys and when you can collect them from the agent or your legal representative. Also, make sure you have the alarm codes (if any) and instruction manuals. Some purchasers want to collect the keys that day from the agent; others have the keys delivered to their solicitor after settlement. By sorting out the logistics beforehand, you can enjoy your property sooner (without setting off any house alarms!).

3. Final inspection


This is probably the most important inspection you will undertake, so you should organise it during daylight hours as close as possible to settlement and really take your time with it. Has any debris been left behind? Do the fittings and fixtures remain? Are the contractual inclusions actually in place? Have the exclusions been disposed of?

4. Final Title Search


Just like a final inspection, a final title search will inform you if there have been any dealings with or new interests in the legal ownership of the property. After all, you can't buy something from someone if they don't own it. You'll also need to remove any caveat you've placed on the title to enable the change of ownership to take place.

5. Cheque directions


Your legal advisor and lender will organise the cheques on your behalf, but it's up to you to make sure the settlement amounts and payees are correct before property settlement. Also, make sure the cheques have correct spellings - incorrectly issued non-negotiable bank cheques can hold up and delay a settlement, and that's the last thing you want!
