Home Made Gifts

Home made gifts have been drifting into the "unwanted" category. No wonder, when they have so often consisted of strange knitted shapes and patterns, typically lacking imagination. Time to put an end to it. The rebirth of crafts is the topic of the day. Home made presents can be the best choice and having no need to make them from scratch.

The fragrance of a conifer in the living room is an inherent part of Christmas.  A reasonable size, a beautiful shape, and marvelous decorations . . . but which type of tree should you choose this year?  Herewith, a complete guide to the most common Chritmas trees.

Our previous interview with Mark Gordon was dedicated to the exciting world of shipwrecks, miles underwater. It offered an insight into the work of Odyssey Marine Exploration, their team, and the high-tech equipment they use.  This second segment focuses on the Cultural Heritage Convention, the ownership of treasures that are discovered and where these treasures are to be found.

Time - the very concept of it has fascinated and provoked human beings since the very beginning. And so does the idea of traveling in time. The main protagonists of these movies were granted certain privileges of time that worked in their favour. What would it look like if people could travel in time, or if they didn't age, or if they grew up the other way round...?  Find out in our weekly movie tips.

TREASURE – The very word evokes a feeling of adventure and legend. Scientists, anthropologists, and governments are as enamored with deep sea treasures as the average person. Odyssey Marine Exploration, founded in 1994 and listed on the NASDAQ, is an organization that comprises professionals, scientists, and technicians and is dedicated to underwater and deep sea exploration of treasure and minerals. We have the opportunity to interview their CEO, Mark Gordon.

With Christmas getting closer day by day, the essentials of Christmas often get lost or disappear under all the commercial distractions. This article is dedicated to the important facts about one of the biggest holidays of the year that you may not have known about. Read on.

New Christmas Decorations

Believe it or not, the custom of decorating Christmas trees is close to four centuries old. The tree was initially hung from the ceiling upside down, then later placed into a stand shaped like a cross with the tip to the top and trimmed with available decorations made from such materials as wood, paper, corn, straw, dough... The ornaments hanging from the tree have clearly changed since those days, and so has the diversity of the auxiliary decoration. Get inspired.
