Same Name around the world.

This cool map shows structure of giving names to the people in particular countries of Northern Part of Eastern Hemisphere. Don't you think it is kind of unique map which could change your name in order to be sound local in one of the countries on the map.

My Name in different Name metamorphoses depending on the country in a map.

Jews vs Hebrews


I found a really cool map, which shows the phonetic way saying word Jew around the Europe. You would notice that mostly in a South and Eastern Part of Europe they call us more ethnically centered name as people belonging to Hebrew nation.  However Northern and western part preferred more Religiously centered name as Jews (people who practice Judaism as their religion) .
So half of Europe can call as Zhid and get away with it.

Moscow Metro - two cool diagrams.

Moscow Metro - two cool diagrams.

This diagram shows us how deep Moscow (subway) Metro goes underground. The number next to the station is how deep in meters the station is located beneath the earth surface. The map is color coordinated and shows that Moscow metro is a one of the deepest in a world.




The second map is a chronological which shows us how subway was ground through out the years, staring in a march of 1935 and growing extensively, recently crossing the borders of the ring highway on outskirts of Moscow.
