Unlike most cruise ships, the Becrux is a mighty ship made for four-legged passengers. With a capacity of nearly 20,000 cattle or 60,000 sheep, the Becrux is the largest custom-built livestock carrier in the world. Her expert crew and stock handlers are renowned for getting their "passengers" from ranches in Western Australia to markets in Asia, North America and the Middle East quickly, safely and in as much comfort as possible. This is no small task as the seas she often sails - the Java Sea, the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea - are the home waters of some of the world's most dangerous pirates. Becrux's officers and crew need to be on constant guard, while her stock experts must be equally vigilant about the health of the animals they carry.

Frederick Law Olmsted was among the first to regard landscape architecture as a profession and a fine art - in fact, with Calvert Vaux he virtually created that profession. To Olmsted, a park was both a work of art and a necessity for urban life. Olmsted's efforts to preserve nature created an "environmental ethic" decades before the environmental movement became a force in American politics.

The oceans of our planet are ruthless battlefields that constantly test even the deadliest carnivores. Dive beneath the icy waves of Alaska's Aleutian Islands to witness a hunting technique rarely, if ever, documented amongst killer whales. Orcas spend only moments feeding on a gray whale calf before dragging the carcass to the sea floor in order to store the meat for leaner times. Remarkably, small cameras mounted on the dead whale capture the entire process.

It's over ten tons of chrome and steel packing 605 horsepower and a 200-ton towing capacity making it the most powerful truck on the road today. The Ford F150 is built inside one of the company's most modern production facilities-the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan. The facility has three main buildings: the body shop, the paint shop, and the final assembly line. The plant is built from the ground up to maximize efficiency and a new F150 rolls off the assembly line every minute. It is a remarkable feat since the Dearborn Truck Plant manufactures ten of the eleven F150 models. The eleven different models of the truck can be ordered in over 500,000 different combinations of cabs, beds, engines and colours etc.

There are more cars on the roads than ever before - and we're cycling far more than we used to. But that's leading to regular bouts of road rage, with the two tribes most often at loggerheads: cyclists and drivers. The difference is that, new, cheap technology means that when the red mist descends, many incidents are caught on camera by the cyclists and motorists in the thick of it.
