The Catacombs in Alexandria are so called because the design was very similar to the Christian Catacombs in Rome. Most likely it was a private tomb, later converted to a public cemetery. It consists of 3 levels cut into the rock, a staircase, a rotunda, the triclinium or banquette hall, a vestibule, an antechamber and the burial chamber with three recesses in it; in each recess there is a sarcophagus. The Catacombs also contain a large number of Luculi or grooves cut in the rock.

French company New Wind has created a wind "turbine" in the shape of a tree. It's designed for parks, homes, businesses and other small-scale applications. The "leaves" harness wind energy even at low winds and don't make noise. We can't wait for these trees to be available commercially for use at homes worldwide!
.KINKY 09 (a.k.a. Lana 3000) for this lady i got inspired, seeing one of my older concepts on the rhubarbe-blog (http://rhubarbes.tumblr.com). I kind of forgot about it, but seeing it pop up on other blogs made me give it a little "remake". Thanks for this inspiration !
