The most eco-friendly house in the world was built in Norway

In the XXI century, when the environment has already suffered enough, more and more attention is paid to the environmental solutions. Construction of houses of adobe is becoming increasingly popular not only in hot dry countries, but also in the CIS.

Everyone today wants to have their own house, well-furnished in accordance with their own habits. But not everyone can afford it, because it is assumed that a private house is expensive. Construction of a house of adobe does not require any sufficient costs, as it is built literally of what is underfoot. Furniture can also be fashioned from the same material as the house itself. House heating requires lower costs, as this ecological material retains heat well during cold weather, and cool – during hot summer.

Adobe is a clay building material that is diluted with water in pre-prepared holes, and then kneaded. Chopped straw is added to increase the density, sand is added to reduce the shrinkage, lime facilitates acceleration of hardening and water resistance.

Construction of houses of adobe is the process of unification and harmonization of man and nature, family and home. Adobe allows getting rid of corners, which will contribute to further calm atmosphere in the house, according to psychologists.

Clay house is not only cost-effective, but also environmentally correct decision, because the material of which it is built will not leave muddy footprints on the Earth!

Find cities with similar climate

This map has been created using The Global environmental stratification. The Global environmental stratification (GEnS), based on statistical clustering of bioclimate data (WorldClim). GEnS, consists of 125 strata, which have been aggregated into 18 global environmental zones (labeled A to R) based on the dendrogram.

The Appalachian Mountains, the Scottish Highlands, and the Atlas Mounts in Africa were the same mountain range

The Central Pangean Mountains was a prominent mountain ridge in the central part of the supercontinent Pangaea that extends across the continent from northeast to southwest through the Carboniferous , Permian Triassic periods. The mountains were formed due to a collision within the supercontinents Gondwana and Laurussia during the creation of Pangaea. It was comparable to the present Himalayas at its highest peak during the start of the Permian period. It isn’t easy to assume now that once upon a time that the Scottish Highlands, The Appalachian Mountains, the Ouachita Mountain Range, and the Atlas Mountains in northwestern Africa are the same mountains , once connected as the Central Pangean Mountains.

Human Emotions Visualized

Despite significant diversity in the culture around the globe, humanity's DNA is 99.9 percent alike. There are some characteristics more primary and typical to the human experience than our emotions. Of course, the large spectrum of emotions we can feel can be challenging to verbalize. That's where this splendid visualization by the Junto Institute comes in. This visualization is the newest in an ongoing attempt to categorize the full range of emotions logically. Our knowledge has come a long route since William James suggested 4 primary emotions: fear, grief, love, and rage. These kernel emotions yet form much of the basis for current frameworks. The Junto Institute's visualization above classifies 6 basic emotions: fear, anger, sadness, surprise, joy, love More nuanced descriptions begin from these 6 primary emotions, such as jealousy as a subset of anger and awe-struck as a subset of surprise. As a result, there are 102 second-and third-order emotions placed on this emo
