The Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport opened in 1992. The facility sits on 23 acres along Yaquina Bay near the Pacific Ocean. The aquarium was home to Keiko, the orca who starred in the movie Free Willy, from January 1996 until September 9, 1998, when he was shipped to Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland. It is a world class marine educational attraction, ranked among the top ten aquariums in North America and one of Oregon's top tourist attractions. by Hercio Dias

These amazing embryonic animal photographs of dolphins, sharks, dogs, penguins, cats and elephants are from a new National Geographic Documentary called “Extraordinary Animals in the Womb”. The show’s producer, Peter Chinn, used a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics and tiny cameras to capture the process from conception to birth. They are the most detailed embryonic animal pictures ever seen. by SeriLynn

Marion Anderson, who in 1939 was refused permission to perform at Constitution Hall by the Daughter of the American Revolution, went on to become the first African American leading artist at the Met in 1955.  Anderson was an example to Leontyne Price and Jessye Norman, for whom she obviously opened doors.  In 1978 Ms Anderson received the  Kennedy Center Honors Medallion.  An invitation to the White House is a part of  that event. by smurfet422

Must do: Blue Grotto in Capri, Italy.  When you go to Naples, you can also go to the Pompeii ruins, or take a Ferry to Capri.  Capri is not to miss.  The Blue Grotto is the big tourist attraction there, and we thought it was a bit touristy.  This is, however, the color or the water out in the Mediterranean.  Beautiful. by geraldine
