How to Get Into the New Frost Science Museum for Cheap — or Free

Like a gigantic magnet, the Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in downtown Miami attracted 28,208 people its opening week. In just seven days, Frost Science welcomed about 10 percent of the total number of visitors that its nearby sister museum, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), received in its first year.

Many people, particularly children, were awestruck by the new space, with its state-of-the-art planetarium and 500,000-gallon aquarium, among other attractions.

Sea Israel: The Gottesman Aquarium to open in Jerusalem

Bringing the sea to Jerusalem might sound like a crazy idea, but this June, it will become a reality.

The Jerusalem Biblical Zoo is currently the city’s most visited paid attraction. In 2002, the zoo was given approval to expand its 26-hectare campus by an additional 14 hectares. At that time, the idea to build an aquarium on this additional land was proposed.

In 2008, the national biodiversity plan was

Dec 26 (Reuters) – Fights, disturbances and false reports of gunfire caused chaotic scenes and shut down several malls across the United States on Monday during the typically busy post-Christmas shopping day.

Eight to 10 people suffered minor injuries during a melee in the food court at The Mills at Jersey Gardens in Elizabeth, New Jersey, the mayor there said on Twitter.

Letter: E-cigarettes lead to increased teen nicotine use

Vaping, or using e-cigarettes, is an emerging public health issue as more research studies show the effects of their use.
One study at the University of Southern California found that teens who vaped frequently were about 10 times more likely to become regular smokers than teens who did not use e-cigarettes.
