In one year, each of the 35 installed cameras make up to 12 000 images, which allows the scientists to monitor the evolution of melting ice.

Bali is a magical island. I bought tickets and booked hotels by myself on the Internet without any travel agency, I have traveled around the island for three weeks. The Balinese are very good hospitable people, very religious. You will not taken in by them, do not even think about picking and stealing.
1. Visit the spa. It is very good and very cheap there.
2. Buy yourself and buy for gifts natural soap, as much as you can.
3. Buy much coffee, tea and cocoa.
4. Buy local chocolates and chocolate.
The best course was at the airport. Do not exchange money in hotels-there is the most unfavorable course reception.
Keep receipts for currency exchange, because you may need it at the airport for the exchange of Indonesian rupees into another currency. You can use credit cards American Express (AMEX), VISA, Master. Traveler’s checks are accepted in hotels and exchange offices. In Bali, it is difficult to exchange notes USD until 1996, denominations of less than 100 USD, USD 50 bills in taken by undervalued exchange rate, banknotes from 1 to 20 USD – not accepted.
Bali is a wonderful country for the rest. But we must remember a few things.
Use only bottled water (also for cooking)
Use insect repellents
Swimming in areas with corals, use rubber slippers.
In Bali, do not point fingers to anyone or touch someone’s head.
Manifestations of affection in public are not allowed.
Do not shout, do not be angry.
Do not cast your foot on the leg so that your foot was directed on someone.
Do not start talking about politics.
One should not eat with left hand or give something to other people as traditionally left hand in Indonesia is used for washing after defecation.
These are the conventionalities adopted in this society and remember that we are the guests here, so let’s just have fun.
In India, Radjasthan, the company to controle sharp increase of population has started. The state autorities propose women and men free sterilization in exchange for a new car and other prizes that will be raffled off in a lottery.
The Indian authorities are concerned about population growth in the country, which is expected by 2030 to overtake China in population.
According to the UN Fund for Population (UNFPA), the total fertility rate in India – that is, the average number of children born by each woman – is 2.588, indicating the extremely rapid growth.
As suggested by Sitaram Armagh, chief physician of the district Dzhhundzhunu in western India, the opportunity to get a car in ownership will be sufficient for at least 20 000 members of both sexes to undergo sterilization.
This offer applies to all Indians, not only for residents of arid Dzhhundzhunu, as other regions of India also conducted a similar voluntary program to controle over population.
In India in the 1970s, a nationwide family planning program was held, when initiated by Sandzhey Gandhi, the son of then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, the man who had two or more children, were forced to undergo deferentectomy.
But it was obligatory and therefore caused a lot of criticism and was abandoned.
