Religion in Antarctica - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Religion in Antarctica

Antarctica has at least seven buildings used for religious worship services: Chapel of the Snows, Antarctica, a Nondenominational Christianity chapel at McMurdo Station, Ross Island; Trinity Church, Antarctica, a Russian Orthodox church at Bellingshausen Station, South Shetland Islands; Chapel of Santisima Virgen de Lujan, Antarctica, a Catholic chapel at Marambio Base, Seymour Island; San Francisco de Asis Chapel, a Catholic chapel at Esperanza Base, Antarctic Peninsula; St.

James and Drew's insight:

This category is obviously religion because it discusses the amount of religious buildings in that frozen wasteland. 7 buildings doesn't seem like a lot but when you consider that fact that this continent is mostly ice, it seems like a lot more. .

 article is about Africa's religion. It mainly speaks about how the traditional religions of the area still widely thrive thepughout the inhabitants of the country. Even those who practice new religions often incorporate traditional practices.

Kaleigh & Lauren:)'s curator insight, April 13, 2014 10:47 PM

Religion:  Religion in africa is different than some might see.  Christian and Islam are just among the minorities.  Traditional African Religion is much more than some give credit for.  10% of the population still practice this religion full time.  Their expressions are found in oral traditions.  They believe in a supreme being who created and ordered the world, but experienced as distant and unreachable.

Planhacker: Every Unlimited Broadband Plan | Lifehacker Australia

Planhacker: Every Unlimited Broadband Plan | Lifehacker Australia | D&J Europe and Australia and Africa | Scoop.it

Since we last looked at the unlimited broadband sector almost a year ago, there have been two notable trends. Firstly, the number of plans on offer has continued to shrink somewhat. Secondly, we have seen the emergence of the first unlimited NBN plan, from AusBBS. (TPG announced plans for unlimited NBN in September last year but never followed through on them.)

 

As we’ve explained before, the economics of how Australian providers pay for the internet connections which are onsold to customers mean that unlimited download plans are relatively rare in the Australian market. If you use massively more than every other customer on your plan, your provider may decide to invoke an acceptable usage policy. (Agreeing to this policy will be part of the process of signing up, so your ability to complain on this point will be limited.) Some also have more specific restrictions, such as blocking torrent traffic or charging more in regional areas. We’ve noted specific details for each provider under the table.

 

Note that we’re only including NBN and ADSL2 plans here. In some Planhacker pre-2012 roundups where we looked at unlimited broadband, we have included slower ADSL1 plans as well. However, the reader consensus opinion is that these don’t deserve consideration: the speeds are too slow to be useful for most purposes, and the options are often no faster than the shaping options available on ADSL2+ plans with a download limit. The theoretical maximum for ADSL2+ is 20Mbps, though in practice it’s often much lower.
