7 Grand Hotels With Deep Railroad Roots

Hotels and railroads go way back. The relationship worked: Travelers needed somewhere to sleep, so railroad companies built hotels. Though the earliest railroad lodgings in the United States were primarily for railway workers, later hotels catered to the lavish lifestyles of Gilded Age travelers. "The people who are taking long-distance railroad excursions in the 1880s, 1890s, are generally quite well-to-do people," said Andrew Sandoval-Strausz, a professor at the University of New Mexico and author of "Hotel: An American History."

Car Depreciation: 5 Models That Lose Value

For many of us, a new car is one of the biggest purchases of our lifetime, and one of the largest costs associated with that new car is depreciation. Car depreciation is the amount of value an auto loses over time, and that figure can vary dramatically from car to car. For consumers who keep their car for five years or less, depreciation should be one of the main factors to consider. Those looking to hold on to their car for the long haul may benefit by paying less upfront because the resale value really won't matter five or 10 years later. Buyers should keep in mind that just because a vehicle has a lousy depreciation value, it doesn't mean it's a bad car. It just means that, for varying reasons, people aren't willing to pay top dollar for that model as a used car.

10 Questions You and Your Buyers Must Ask Before Purchasing A Condominium Unit

Buying a condominium unit can be more involved than buying a single family home. This is because you have to worry about both the unit itself and the condominium project as a whole. To borrow from a famous phrase, not all condominiums are created equally. Some condominiums are very well run; some are quite poorly run and underfunded. Buyers interested in purchasing a condominium unit must do their homework: not only about the condition of the individual unit they are interested in purchasing, but on the financial health and governance of the condominium as a whole. Remember, you are buying into the entire project as much as you are the unit, and your decision will impact your daily living and your ability to re-sell.

10 Shocking X-Rays of Sharp Objects Embedded in Peopleís Bodies

Assaults and freak accidents involving sharp objects have yielded some pretty shocking X-rays over the years. But as dramatic as these images look, some victims have, seemingly miraculously, survived their horrific injuries and even gone on to make full recoveries. Still, try being a nurse and attempting to stay cool when youíre looking at an X-ray of a skull embedded with a rusty four-inch knife. Sometimes, removing such an object can lead to significant damage. And even if the object is safely removed, either backwards or forwards following the trajectory along which it entered the body, thereís still the risk of infection. On top of this, nursing intervention may also be required to assist traumatized patientsí psychological reactions to their injuries, as well as those of their family or friends.

10 Spectacular Movable Bridges

A movable bridge is a bridge that moves to allow passage (usually) for boats or barges. An advantage of making bridges moveable is the lower cost, due to the absence of high piers and long approaches. The principal disadvantage is that the traffic on the bridge must be halted when it is opened for passages. The Gateshead Millennium Bridge is a pedestrian and cyclist bridge spanning River Tyne in England between Gateshead's Quays arts quarter on the south bank, and the Quayside of Newcastle on the north bank. The bridge is essentially two graceful curves, one forming the deck and the other supporting it, spanning between the two islands running parallel to the quaysides.
