My parents take interest in Russian culture and history and I found themed tours that could suit them. Both of them really enjoyed traveling around the Colden Ring and they came back full of excitement and enthusiasm. Now I'm planning to go on a trip around Eastern Europe with CG Journeys!

Totally recommend this company! I travelled with YYZ twice and both trips went really greatly. My travel agent helped our family a lot when planning our trips and even during traveling!
Thank you, YYZ!

Reddit is an interesting website as a community driven content aggregator. It is heavily left-leaning except for certain subreddits which are sub-categories of the website.

The subreddits of the website are tailored towards certain interests that different users have which makes the website an extremely powerful tool to find information on some rather esoteric topics.

That said, the website is also heavily self-referential and has its own rather snobbish attitude.

The site design is antiquated and minimal and the moderation of the website is often directed by the interests of the centre organization. As a result, some of the more niche subreddits have been banned over the years leading to a further decrease in the diversity of opinion and viewpoints on the site.

Reddit competes with other sites like 4chan and 8chan for a deregulated, user-driven content website demographic. Reddit is one of the more authoritarian and locked-down one of them.

A wonderful website to lose tons of time on by delving deeper and deeper into tropes of various mediums.

It is a ton of fun but a huge time-suck and with overuse can ruin all TV shows because you recognize just how much the same cliches repeat.

A huge amount of fun and a great resource in general if a little antiquated in its design.

A very basic and simplistic looking website that despite that does get the job done.

It is good for seeing world time (despite this functionality being available in most search engines) but the real killer feature is the time and date converters. I have not been able to find any other place on the web where I can convert and calculate time between dates (including business days or all calendar days) as simply and effortlessly.

A formerly enormously important social hub as a sort of precursor to Reddit, the present-day Digg resembles Buzzfeed far more.

It is now a simple news aggregator with quite a heavy slant towards specific types of news that they prefer to share. It is a far cry from the social network that was once as big and important as other social sharing sites.

One of the very few politics sites on the internet that is truly unbiased and is not pushing neither a right or a left-wing agenda.

It is a fantastic compendium, compiled twice daily - once in the morning and once in the afternoon - of all the news that is worth reading - in a readily accessible, minimal, link-based form.

If you are at all interested in world events and politics news, this should be your landing page for news in the morning.

Born as a clickbait, arbitrage website completely devoid of any substance or content - it somehow took that concept and made it worse.

Buzzfeed is known as the laughingstock of the internet, for its truly vile cesspool of social justice warriors, for its overly dramatic authoritarians-in-denial, and for the website's absolute refusal to be held accountable for what the site publishes.

The website hides sponsored articles in amongst regular "articles" which are typically lists or quizzes aimed at the lowest common denominator, and when it attempts to do more "serious journalism", the result is completely unabashed defense of the rabid, radical, extreme left and a total assault on free speech and conservative thought.

To say Buzzfeed has no credibility is to understate things greatly.

A heavily biased so-called "news" resource - HuffPo is hypocritical in nearly every possible aspect. It preaches equality and diversity, and yet it's boardroom is nearly completely composed of white women. It claims to be strongly for diversity, and yet it practices no diversity of thought whatsoever.

The policing on the website is extreme. It does not only extend to the comments section which is to be expected, but it even removes any articles that somehow get through the censors that are not in line with their political agenda.

It is incredibly biased against conservative speech and thought, but that is not the main enemy of the site - nay, the main enemy of HuffPo is free thought, free speech, and people who dare think for themselves.

Dear Travelzoo,

This is a love letter. Are you beautiful? Mmmm... you're pretty but let's not be hyperbolic and say you're gorgeous. I mean, you're definitely not fugly or anything! (4 stars!) You could try a little harder but we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts....

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
