Rogue waves are unpredictable, coming seemingly out of nowhere. Until now, the only warnings that a Continue reading “Rogue waves Prediction?”

Hong Kong’s Kowloon Walled City remained one of the strangest places on Earth. Demolished twenty-one years ago (March 1993 – April 1994) city was empire of little houses stacked on top of each other, connected by staircases snaking under dangling wires, through corridors so dark even police were rumored to be afraid of them. A virtually lawless labyrinth of crime, grime, commerce and hope. After all, the Walled City was a kind of historical accident. A former Qing dynasty fortress, it never fully came under the regulation Continue reading “Remembering Kowloon Walled City”
