Travel Info - North America

NORTH AMERICA - TORNADO ALLEY - Form storm chasers, a nice day is letdown. Every summer, these meteorological disaster buffs scour the midwestern plains from Texas to North Dakota and from Colorado to Indiana, driving hundreds of kilometers a day in hopes of witnessing a striated barberpole supercell storm, an ice-blender hail core, a  laminar-outflow stogie or-best of all-a tornado.

Prompted by the success of the movie Twister, half a dozen bad-weather experts have begun advertising storm-chasing safaris. Success isn't guaranteed: most days are spent consulting meteorological data, racing to the next potential hot spot, or visiting tourist sites. Bookings can be taken for the tornado season, from May to July. All participants must sign a liability waiver.

Learn More About America

though not The Americas (sometimes referred to as America) is the area including the land mass located between the Pacific Ocean and the Atlantic Ocean, generally divided into North America and South America. The term usually includes the Caribbean, the islands in and around the Caribbean Sea & GreenlandIceland, for cultural & historical reasons. The isthmus of Central America is usually considered geographically part of North America. The Americas are often described collectively as the Western Hemisphere or the New World.

Most references consider that there are two continents, North America and South America. However the use of America to refer to the New World as a whole is also used in English, such as in the common phrase “Christopher Columbus discovered America”. Some consider that America be considered as one continent.

The single-continent concept also appears thematically; for example, the five rings of the Olympic flag represent the habitable continents; only one of the five represents all of the Americas.

People who live in the Americas are sometimes referred to as being American, although the word ‘American’ is used much more commonly, and, indeed, nearly exclusively in English, to refer to a citizen of the United States of America. The Spanish language uses norteamericano (‘North American’) or estadounidense (literally ‘United Statesian’) when referring to U.S. citizens, and the French language which sometimes accepts états-unien (états-unienne for women). In Portuguese, people born in United States of America are termed norteamericano or estadounidense.

INTERESTING INFO
NORTH AMERICA - FALL RIVER  - In August 1892. an event occurred in Massachusetts which so intrigued the world it was even incorporated into children's rhymes: "Lizzie Borden took an ax..." A court found that Lizzie hadn't given her father and stepmother 40 whacks, but most students of the infamous double murder have since concluded that Borden was guilty.

Examine the scene yourself: the Second Street site of the killings is now the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, where you can spend a night in the room where Abbey Borden's body was found and eat a breakfast identical to the one consumed by Andrew and Abbey the morning they were killed. You'll dine in the room where autopsies on the couple were performed.
DARKER  PASSIONS

NORTH AMERICA - LOS ANGELES - To fully appreciate a foreign culture, you must understand its darker passions. In Los Angeles, that means police pursuits through the city's maze of highways.

LA television networks routinely abandon scheduled programs to bring live images of these sometimes-deadly battles to hungry viewers.

Some people even have membership with some type of pursuit watch company that tells them when their local media covers live police pursuits. Before, they had to rely on word of mouth, or a “breaking news” alert on the radio or TV. But now,  thanks to today’s technology, members can be alerted through a pager or by a telephone call.
