The Kap Arkona On Rugen Holiday

The Kap Arkona is located in the north of Germany. On the largest island of Ruegen. There is a 45 meter high coast, which consists of chalk and marl. It is one of the most popular places to visit the island, as evidenced by approximately 800,000 visitors. This is but it certainly was not alone on the coast, but also on the two lighthouses, one and two military Peilturm bunkers, some of which come from the days of the Wehrmacht and of the GDR and served as a headquarters. The lighthouses offer an impressive history.

Thus, the smaller of the two taken over 19 meters already in service in 1828. It is also called Schinkel Tower. Schinekturm The lighthouse is the second oldest of the entire coast of the Baltic Sea. The taller tower was the day after the closure of the Schinkel Tower 1 April 1905 put into operation. He stands right next to the old tower and Schinkel is almost twice as large.

The height of the tower is over 35 meters. About a kilometer from Cape Arkona away is the 165-ton boulder sieves Schneider stone, which the northernmost point of East Germany’s objections and thus marked. Right at Cape Arkona is the royal staircase, which consists of 230 steps. It was built during the Swedish-Russian war 1741 – 1743, when complaints belonged to Sweden. In a storm in 1953 the staircase was completely destroyed, but rebuilt in 1995. Spend your holiday on Rugen and visit the historic buildings but themselves. Rugen is possible to explore everything with the wheel when the vehicle they would prefer to leave the apartment. It offers a large selection of hotels and apartments available. It’s worth it!


Homebuyers are an interesting study. Watching people make their home buying decisions has brought me to the conclusion that every decision that each of us makes is based on emotion. You heard me, is all about emotion. Before you deny what I am describing to you, let me start with me. Painful as the revelation for me, even I, as a Naval Academy graduate, retired Navy pilot, and the extraordinary home inspector, make decisions based on emotion.

Took a long weekend to get to me, but I’m there. Have you had a feeling in the gut of a decision? A hunch? That is the emotion. We make decisions that reflect how we feel about the event or expect to feel when you complete the result. People, especially those who are highly educated and technically trained, rarely realize and usually do not admit that their decisions are based on emotion. Before discussing the details of emotional responses, I have to admit that logic does not play an important role. What ends up happening is, after the response of the near and immediate emotional decision, the logic begins filling.

The logic is used to make the emotion seem reasonable. The emotional responses as I see them fall into two broad categories. The first is the desire for pleasure and the second is to avoid pain. When we are considering a decision, weigh the balance of desire and the probability of a nice result with fear and contempt for the pain. What real estate agents face is the answer to issues presented as logic that are really emotions.

Disaster Reduction With Well Built Homes

The main fear of the inhabitants of Mexico City is losing its heritage as a result of an earthquake or earthquake similar to 1985. Therefore, one of the guarantees that can be made is to offer apartments in buildings that comply with those rules of construction. If we take into account recent disasters in Haiti and Chile, the great difference between the two countries is that material damage was much lower in Chile. Such a reduction of the catastrophic consequences due to well-constructed houses are based on a normative, which is zero, or outright non-existent in Haiti. Mario Ordaz Schroeder, who is a researcher at the Institute of Engineering of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, said that in Chile, the 8.8 magnitude earthquake caused a release of energy 600 times greater than that of Haiti, but thanks to education and civil the strict regulation is greatly reduced damage, as it is not affected more than 600 victims. The head of the Seismology Department Institute of Geophysics of the same institution, reminds us that world events happen more than 15 earthquakes of magnitude greater than 7.0, for a year. He added that the vast majority takes place near the borders between tectonic plates, involved between two and five plates, depending on location.

Such is the case of Mexico, which has well-known active faults, same as those found within the Neo-Volcanic Axis. All parts that make up the “tectonic puzzle” of the Mexican nation, call for reform and consolidation of laws requiring builders to implement risk transfer mechanisms. These mechanisms should be in charge of all insurance companies. And who should encourage and ensure that buildings are made based on the rules already mentioned, must be in real estate in Mexico City looking to offer not only a heritage, but also a guarantee that your assets may survive a seismic event a magnitude higher than the 7.0 degrees on the Richter scale.
