Glendalough is an irish natural park, i've chosen this place for my entry of a beauty natural place, because i've been for a month in ireland and i visited it.

Glendalough (Irish: Gleann Dá Loch, meaning Glen of Two Lakes) is a glacial valley located in County Wicklow, Ireland. Within it lies a ruined village containing a former monastery, which was founded in the 6th century by Saint Kevin, a hermit priest, and destroyed in 1398 by English troops.
The location was sought out as a peaceful retreat by Saint Kevin because of its remoteness and serenity, but several men who wished to follow his teachings built a temporary place of churches and living quarters in the valley below the site of his house.This soon grew and became an important school. The remains of the monastery are located beside the Lower Lake and the Upper Lake.

The monastic site includes a 33 metres tall round tower and Saint Kevin's Cross, a Celtic High Cross. It has been thought the round tower was built during the era of the Viking invasions of Ireland (up to and around 1066), in order to protect the religious books and chalices used in the monastery at the time.

The monastery with its round tower is today one of the most popular tourist attractions in the county.
The valley was formed during the last ice age by a glacier which left a moraine across the valley mouth. The Poulanass river, which plunges into the valley from the south, created a delta, which eventually divided the original lake in two.
Glendalough is surrounded by semi-natural oak woodland. Much of this was formerly coppiced (cut to the base at regular intervals) to produce wood, charcoal and bark. In the springtime, the oakwood floor is carpeted with a display of bluebells, wood sorrel and wood anemones. Other common plants are woodrush, bracken, polypody fern and various species of mosses. The understorey is largely of holly, hazel and mountain ash.

The Web 2.0 is the transition has been from traditional applications to applications that run through the Web focused on the end user. This is generating collaborative applications and services that replace the desktop applications.

This is a stage that has defined new projects on the Internet and is concerned about providing better solutions for the end user.

Dan Brown

Dan Brown is the author of numerous bestselling novels, including the Nº1 New York Times bestseller, "The Da Vinci Code", one of the best selling novels of all time. Recently named one of the World's 100 Most Influential People, his novels have been translated and published in more than 40 languages around the world.
Dan is a graduate of Amherst College and Phillips Exeter Academy, where he spent time as English teacher before start to write novels. In 1996, his interest in code-breaking and covert government agencies led him to write his first novel, Digital Fortress, which quickly became a national bestseller.

He's the son of a math teacher and a professional sacred musician, Dan grew up surrounded by the paradoxical philosophies of science and religion. These complementary perspectives served as inspiration for his second novel Angels & Demons(which I loved when I read it).

Dan’s wife Blythe—an art history buff and painter—collaborates on his research and accompanies him on his frequent research trips, their latest to Paris, where they spent time in the Louvre for his thriller, The Da Vinci Code.

Rubik's Cube

The Rubik's Cube is a mechanical puzzle invented in 1974 by Hungarian sculptor and professor of architecture Ernő Rubik. Originally called the "Magic Cube" by its inventor, this puzzle was renamed "Rubik's Cube" by Ideal Toys in 1980 and won the German Game of the Year special award for Best Puzzle that year. It is said to be the world's best-selling toy, with over 300,000,000 Rubik's Cubes and imitations sold worldwide.
There exist four widely available variations: the 2×2×2, the standard 3×3×3 cube, the 4×4×4, and the 5×5×5.
The invention, descendant of a first prototype of only two layers, is a type of puzzle which consist of a cube in which each of its six faces is divided in nine parts, 3x3, which conforms a total of 26 pieces (there is no central piece) that articulate to each other by the mechanism of the central inner piece, hides inside the cube. The rest of the pieces are visible and three types can be observed that do not lose their
condition throughout the multiple movements that are realized.
These pieces are:
6 central pieces of face, define the color that corresponds to each face and always maintain the relative direction among them, are of a single color. In the original model the white color was opposite to the yellow, red to the orange and the green one to the blue one.
12 pieces edge, are in the edges and are of two colors.
8 pieces vertex, are in the corners and are of three colors.
Many solutions for Rubik’s cube are shortage of independent way. The most popular method was developed by David Singmaster in 1981. This solution consists of solving the Bucket castrates by layer: to that Superior is called, it is solved first, followed of the one of in the middle, and finally the Inferior. After certain practice it is possible to less than solve the bucket in 1 minute. (This is the way that I use).

I’ve chosen this topic for my free entry, because this summer I’ve solved the Rubik’s cube, and also the 2x2 cube and the 4x4.

Our Planet

Our planet is in very seriously problems because we are ¡¡¡destroying it!!! Probably now, we can't save the mother earth but we can try something to help the planet where we live .Earth is dying by a few of reasons like greenhouse effect or deforestation.

Greenhouse effect

The greenhouse effect is the rise in temperature that the Earth experiences because certain gases in the atmosphere (carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane,etc) trap energy from the sun.The greenhouse effect is important. Without the greenhouse effect, the Earth would not be warm enough for humans to live. But if the greenhouse effect becomes stronger, it could make the Earth warmer than usual.

But not confuse greenhouse effect with global warming 'cause at the greenhouse effect the humans prejudice the earth and the global warming it's a consequence of this.

Global Warming

Global warming refers to the increase of the temperature of the earth and the oceans.If the earth will be hotter it can makes changes in rainfall patterns, a increase of the sea level,and can change our kind of life.

Deforestation and extintion of species

It's the process of disappearance of the forest made by humans. During the last years it has increased by the construction development.

The extintion of species is a very seious problem because every day ten species of animals or vegetables disappear.This is also a consequence of the egoism and the effort to exploit the raw matter and destroy the habitat of animals

13 Things we can do to Help our Planet
1.Turn off lights.
2.Turn off other electric things, like TVs, stereos, and radios when not in use.
3.Use rechargable batteries.
4.Do things manually instead of electrically, like open cans by hand.
5.Use fans instead of air conditioners.
6.In winter, wear a sweater instead of turning up your thermostat.
7.Insulate your home so you won't be cold in winter.
8.Use less hot water.
9.Whenever possible, use a bus or subway, or ride your bike or walk.
10.Use recycled paper and/or recycle it. Reuse old papers.
13.Buy recycled products.
