It is assumed that every inch of the world has been explored and charted- that there is nowhere new to go. But perhaps it is the everyday places around us the cities we live in that need to be rediscovered. What does it feel like to find the city s edge, to explore its forgotten tunnels and scale unfinished skyscrapers high above the metropolis? "Explore Everything" reclaims the city, recasting it as a place for endless adventure. Plotting expeditions from London, Paris, Berlin, Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, Bradley L. Garrett has evaded urban security in order to experience the city in ways beyond the boundaries of conventional life. He calls it place hacking: the recoding of closed, secret, hidden and forgotten urban space to make them realms of opportunity. "Explore Everything "is an account of the author s escapades with the London Consolidation Crew, an urban exploration collective. The book is also a manifesto, combining philosophy, politics and adventure, on our rights to the city and how to understand the twenty-first century metropolis."

    In terms of getting your site to the top of Google search results, I think while which website builder you use does make a small difference, the majority of the SEO work will have to be done yourself as none of the builders will do this for you (or else everybody will have their sites rank high Р if it would only be that easy!)

      I had originally up-loaded many large music files to put in music players which I have since removed. When I got ready to create a new music player on the site, it showed an "archived" area and guess what? Even though I thought I had deleted all of those out of storage, they are in archives and I cannot seem to get to them to delete them.

    I was one of the 5am club members, but i've got my first fail this morning. Since 2nd of Feb, the minute I watched your youtube videos, I wake up at 5am or 5.15am every morning, but this morning not. I feel sleep deprived almost every day since Feb 2. I tought this was just about having my body adapting, but much of my usual schedule has to be adapted too. As an exemple, yesterday night, my wife and my daughter went back home at 10.30 pm. It's not possible for me to sleep before my kids and wife are at bed. I know, it's stupidЙ
