How Women Bands Looked Like a Few Decades Ago

It seems that women in past have been as same active in the world of music and stage arts as they are today. Despite the fact we think that human society was way more conservative about forty or fifty years ago, women were trying to prove themselves as equal to man, probably more than today, and they wanted to be present in every kind of humans activity. Women bands weren’t so popular few decades ago but we could say that today’s world of music is shaped by women. Here you can take a look on how women bands looked like in past, some of photos are more than fifty years old.

Astonishing Cherry Tree With Differently Colored Blossoms

Although this is not any kind of another amazing natural wonder, this beautiful tree with differently colored blossoms is definitely an attraction in the Portchester village, in Britain.

In springs, when trees get their blossoms, this tree looks little bit different than the others. One half of the tree has white blossoms and other half has pink blossoms. The visitors who see this tree for a first time are often astonished by what they see. However, the explanation beside this little natural phenomena is pretty simple and obvious.

This tree was formed like this because of some not so successful grafting. People tried to graft an ornamental cherry tree onto the native British cherry tree which was aimed to serve as a rootstock.

The purpose of rootstock was just to provide the newly grafted tree with nutrients and water from roots. However, the rootstock decided to fight and live and day by day, it fought out for almost an equal share of food and space from the rest of tree.

When Cold War ended Russia and rest of Soviet countries changed their military politics and plenty of similar facilities became useless so they had to simply abandon them leaving plenty of military equipment and arms.

Have you ever wondered about how New York or some other giant city could look in hundred years? If you have no idea about how it would look like, then, you should see the city model made by Peter Root.

Peter Root made this amazing city model using a bunch of stacked staples. He decided to call it Ephemicropolis.  As you can see, he needed a plenty of patience and time to create such magnificent model.

There is a whole ‘forest’ of buildings and skyscrapers of different size.  He made this model of city from about 100,000 staples on the surface of 18 square meters.  I really believe that, if technological development continues to grow as equal as in previous years, this model could become real, one day but I am afraid that this civilization has slowly reaching its peak.
