  • Flying from Mt. Everest In The World’s Highest BASE Jump

    Nearly 60 years to the day after the first ascent up Mount Everest, Russian extreme sport star Valery Rozov flew off the north face of Mount Everest – the world’s highest BASE jump ever – 23,688ft above sea level. The ascent began on the Chinese side on the famous north route. It took him four days to climb from the base camp to the jumping location. At precisely 2:30 p.m. local time he leaped despite adverse weather conditions with temperatures -0.4 fahrenheit. Because the cliff at the top was not very high, the initial moments of the leap in the rarified high altitude air were the most critical phase. Rozov needed more time than usual in the thin air to transition from freefall to flying. After that he flew for nearly a full minute at speeds of about 200 km/h (125 mph) along the north face before he landed safely on the Rongbuk glacier – at an altitude of 5,950 meters.

  • World Trade Center Rising: Final Spire Pieces Being Lifted to Roof [WATCH LIVE]

    The final pieces of the spire that will top One World Trade Center — and make it soar to a symbolic 1,776 feet when fully installed — are being raised up to the building’s roof. The 408-foot spire will serve as a world-class broadcast antenna.

The high-rise is scheduled to open for business in 2014. See also: Amazing Views From The Top of One World Trade Center [15 HQ Photos] Via: NBC New York

  • Calo des Moro Beach in Mallorca, Spain [11 HQ Photos]

    In the southeaster part of Mallorca, Spain sits a tropical beach unlike any you’ve ever seen. Calo des Moro has high cliffs on both sides of the sandy beach which gives a very secluded look and feel to visitors. Crystal clear turquoise waters make it a great place to soak in the sun and enjoy the beauty of the Mediterranean sea. It can get crowded on the weekends so do yourself a favor and visit during the week, also make sure you pack a lunch because there isn’t a beach front restaurant near by.

  • SL, Finale And Other NYC Clubs Are In Hot Water

Richard seems to have an affinity toward the water, he owns an island  in the Caribbean and a million dollar personal submarine so this following collection of his finest water sports moments is equally amazing as it is bizarre.

  • Lake Havasu Is More Than Just A Spring Break Location

    Photo via: Shutterstock Lake Havasu has gotten a bad wrap for the over 25 crowd, mostly because of the spring break houseboat stigma. The scene is great for the average mid-twenties party goer, but has had a dark cloud hanging over it’s head since the word got out to the party scene public. Havasu offers some of the best weather accompanied by scenic vistas, waterfalls, fishing, hiking and the REAL London Bridge imported all the way from the UK. So if heaps of college girls in skimpy bikinis just isn’t your thing anymore, simply don’t go during spring break.

  • 5 Pointz: The Destruction Of A Cultural Treasure

    Considered by many to be the graffiti mecca of the world, 5 Pointz is a converted warehouse covered in tags and murals by famous and novice graffiti artists alike, which houses artist studios. For a city that seems so nostalgic for its old architecture and the gritty remainders of what made New York “New York” in the seventies, eighties and nineties, it sure seems keen on wiping them all out to make way for shiny, metal and glass structures. So when rumors began circulating as early as 2010 that 5 Pointz might be torn down, it didn’t really come as a surprise to many. Nothing immediately materialized, and business continued as usual at 5 Pointz, with artists coming from all over the world for a chance at a spot to tag and paint murals.
