It’s not easy to visit Antarctica, one of the world’s cruellest and most desolate environments, but it sure is worth it. Watching great swarms of penguins huddling together, stumbling through blizzards or nose-diving into the bone-chilling water is just astonishing. The smoky grey fluff-ball chicks don’t waddle far from the safety of their parents, but visitors to Antarctica on a cruise can spot them without too much difficulty. And it’s not only penguins - great big albatrosses whirl through the iron sky, far seals sprawl on the water’s edge and whales breach the surf. Abercrombie & Kent offer a luxury 14-night Classic Antarctica Cruise from £10,300 per person, including full-board accommodation, excursions and domestic flights. [Photo: Pexels]
Chevrolet 3100: More than four dozen former Republican foreign policy officials have signed a letter declaring they are not voting for Donald Trump because it would put national security at risk. “None of us will vote for Donald Trump,” reads the letter, signed by 50 veterans of the George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush and Richard Nixon administrations and published August 8th by the New York Times. “From a foreign policy perspective, Donald Trump is not qualified to be President and Commander in Chief. Indeed, we are convinced that he would be a dangerous President and would put at risk our country’s national security and well-being. “Most fundamentally,” the letter states, “Mr. Trump lacks the character, values, and experience to be President. He weakens U.S. moral authority as the leader of the free world. He appears to lack basic knowledge about and belief in the U.S. Constitution, U.S. laws, and U.S. institutions, including religious tolerance, freedom of the press, and an independent judiciary.
