Five roof terraces guaranteed to give you holiday envy

Hotel roof bars and pools are all well and good, but the roof terrace is private to just you (and whoever's worthy of an invite). Whether you want to host an after party or create a romantic hideaway for two, villa rooftop terraces provide some of the best holiday-porn going:

La Trasita, Amalfi Coast

One of the most unique roof terraces belongs to the La Trasita property in Positano, Italy. The distinctive apartment occupies the top level of a 14th century Saracen tower, complete with a private circular rooftop terrace. Sleeping two people, La Trasita is an exceptional romantic retreat, with curved staircases taking you from one floor to the next and incredible sea views from arched windows.

Ca’n Castello, Ibiza

Set in rock strewn gardens, Ca’n Castello is a fine example of modern architecture with a chic design that heavily features natural elements of stone and wood. Built with glass walls, the exquisite roof terrace makes the most of the 360° panoramic views over the ocean, villa’s private pool and Balearic countryside. The terrace has a docking station – ideal for after parties or recreating the magic of CafĂ© del Mar during the day.

Flying Turbines To Power The Future - Wind Power Doesn't Suck After All..

Wind power has always been the wanna-be energy alternative, but quite frankly it has always sucked too much to be convincing of it's potential. Sure, wind is renewable, but it's also extremely unreliable...
Wind, just like the ordinary woman, will not blow where and when you want it..

13 Types of Players You See in MOBA Games

Three-lane MAP
3 paths, 2 bases, Towers and Jungle

MOBA is an abbreviation for multi-player online battle arena. This sort of game has different game modes (or maps), where players use different strategies to destroy the enemy base or take control of capture points.

You control one unit known as a “hero” which has a diverse set of skills. Neutralizing an opponent grants you currency as a reward, which you later use to buy equipment for your character. The approximate match duration is thirty minutes. The two battling teams consist of 5 players each for the larger maps. Smaller game modes include 3 vs 3, 2 vs 2, 1 vs 1 competitions.

On your way to demolish the enemy structures you encounter uncontrollable units referred as “creeps” ( different games use various names ). They give you additional currency when you kill them. There are three paths called “lanes” on the most common map which lead to the opposing base, as well as a jungle area where you can earn more money by killing neutral monsters. Most famous MOBAs nowadays are “DotA” and “League Of Legends” which are considered electronic sports.

Like all other cooperative online games, the best way to win is to communicate with your team mates. And the main purpose of playing is to have fun, right ? Entertaining or not, positive or negative, here are some of the most common player behaviours you will encounter in MOBAs.

1. The Noob

Noob sticker He is a new player, probably installed the game yesterday. He is still learning the controls, the key locations on the map, the jungle monster camps, all the heroes released until today and their skill sets. Trust me, it takes time to actually know what you are doing. These players are usually motivated and try to get used to the MOBA as fast as they can. They have a nice in-game personality, kindly accept feedback and seek go get better.

The term “noob” is also used to describe a far more experienced player who performs as low as a beginner. So if anyone tell you that you are a noob, he most likely uses this word to offend you.
