BANGALORE: Beaches are some of the favorite vacation, honeymoon and adventurous destinations for people around the world. Though we know beaches to be filled with sand that is draped in gold which shimmers under the sunlight, there are strangely beautiful beaches that may just shock you when you look through them.

The beaches on this list will amaze viewers and also stir a desire to go visit them. These beaches are mouth gaping, exciting, fascinating and ones that will leave the viewers awe-struck. Dont be too surprised if some of these beaches defy logic and seem like they are from another planet.

The Starry Shores of Maldives:

This beach is located on one of the islands of Maldives is a real treat to the eyes. The shore of the beach comes to life when small creatures called bioluminescent phytoplankton come together and creates a starry blue-lit shore.

They create a natural light show along the island which is like watching the stars on the sand.

The Hidden Beach, Mexico:

A natural wonder, astonishing creation and a destination for lovers is the hidden beach or the Playa de Amor (beach of love) located in Marieta, Mexico. This beach is hidden out of sight since it is located underground and can be accessed only through being dropped from a helicopter or canoeing through a small tidal wave opening.

This beach came to be when the government of Mexico used this land as a bomb testing facility but later turned it into one of natures most beautiful sites. Today it is listed under UNESCOs world heritage sites.

By Saundra Amrhein TAMPA Fla. (Reuters) – Sunshine and more than 35 miles (57 km) of white-sand beaches have long lured tourists to the Tampa Bay area on Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast, where an infusion of arts and hipster-friendly culture is livening up options once you hang up your bathing trunks.

Tropical Storm Simon off Baja Mexico is creating high surf along local beaches, prompting warnings of strong rip currents and possible coastal flooding.

The National Weather Service issued a warning Monday for high surf and strong rip currents along beaches from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara counties as Tropical Storm Simon weakens and whips its way toward Baja, Mexico.

Waves as high as 8 feet could slam into the coast from Los Angeles to Santa Barbara counties, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a high surf advisory for Monday. Long Beach could see “minor coastal flooding and beach erosion” through Tuesday night.

Though Simon has been downgraded from a hurricane to a tropical storm, and is expected to continue to weaken as it crawls toward land across cooler water, its winds are forecast to still send high tides, strong currents and dangerous sneaker waves to Zuma and Malibu beaches, forecasters warned.

The advisory is just the latest in what has become a particularly damaging summer for Southern Californias coastline. A year of strong Pacific storms has torn apart the seafloor along the coast, displacing huge swaths of underwater coastline, which has created stronger rip currents and tides than normal.

L.A. Countys coastline usually sees much of its sand replenished during the summer due to generous tides, while winter storms typically erode beaches. This year, that hasnt happened.

At the same time, a series of heat waves over the past few months has lured millions of beach goers into the water, resulting in lifeguards having to rescue thousands more swimmers than usual because of the dangerous ocean conditions.

After years of political obscurity, libertarianism is finally having its day, at least according to The New York Times Robert Draper.

Libertarians, who long have relished their role as acerbic sideline critics of American political theater, now find themselves and their movement thrust into the middle of it, he wrote as part of the August cover for The New York Times Magazine.

According to Draper, shifting attitudes toward issues such as same-sex marriage, government surveillance, marijuana decriminalization, foreign intervention, military spending (though, attitudes seem to be swinging back toward interventionism in the weeks since Drapers article) and even reduced sentencing for minor drug offenders prove that the ideology once reserved primarily for third parties is emerging as a major force in American politics.

But while Drapers story focuses almost exclusively on the trends of national politics, as Tip O’Neill famously said, all politics is local. So whether or not Drapers assessment of the Libertarian Moment is correct (The Atlantics David Frum certainly doesnt think so), its worth considering the prospects of libertarianism in the state of Utah.

Regional politics

As far as definitions are concerned, libertarianism is typically understood to be the belief that government should interfere as little as possible in the lives of citizens. As an ideology, libertarianism can manifest itself in more organized capacities for example, an official Libertarian Party was founded in 1971 or as simply an ideological leaning within either of the existing major parties. Either way, those who claim libertarianism in either form are often uncomfortable with increased federal or state power, and hold self governance up as the standard for societal success.

In many ways, Utah seems like a prime state to accept a place in Drapers emerging libertarian America. In a 2013 article by The Washington Posts Reid Wilson, historian Colin Woodard outlined what he thought to be 11 American nations identified according to the unique political landscapes of all the major regions in America. The far West, according to Woodard, encompasses the Great Plains and the Mountain West, which includes Utah, Idaho, Nevada, Wyoming and Montana, as well as much of Colorado, Washington, California, New Mexico, the Dakotas and Nebraska.

An NSA employee wearing name tag Neal Z. recently attended the the University of New Mexicos Engineering and Science Career Fair.

The NSA rep was trying to recruit college students to work at the controversial agency, which collects tons of metadata, emails, phone calls and various other information on American citizens.

University of New Mexico grad Andy Beale and student Sean Potter asked Neal Z. about the massive collection of information by the NSA, reports The Intercept.

Beale and Potter filmed the incident from two angles (videos below).

Amazingly, Neal Z. claimed, “NSA is not permitted to track or collect intelligence on U.S. persons.

However, after NSA leaker Edward Snowden revealed the mass surveillance of Americans by the NSA, the director of national intelligence, James Clapper, admitted to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) in an April letter that the NSA does collect information on Americans, noted The Guardian.

In June, the NSA admitted it was spying on American phone calls, reported CNET, and even the phone habits of the U.S. Congress, according to The New American.

Later, Neal Z. admitted the NSA does collect data under the guidance of the (secret) FISA court, which is not open or accountable to the public.

After Beale and Potter politely debunked several of Neal Z’s claims, Neal Z. angrily threatened to call authorities to silence the two Americans: You do not know what youre talking about. If you dont leave soon, Im going to call university security to get you out of my face.

Neal Z. tried to grab Potter’s iPhone, but it was Potter and Beale who were removed from the fair by campus police for causing a disturbance.

If you’re looking for a departure from your usual beach getaway, you may want to book a trip to one of these stunning spots.

These are some of the world’s most unusual beaches, offering visitors an experience they’re unlikely to find anywhere else.

Some of them are very public, while others are incredibly difficult to reach.

Hidden Beach on the Marieta Islands in Mexico earned its name for a reason. The secluded beach, concealed within a cavernous hole in the ground, can only be accessed through a small tunnel by swimmers or scuba divers.

The idyllic paradise has an incredibly unique history. It is believed to have formed when it was used as a bomb testing site in the early 1900s.

It’s not always happily ever after for Christian business owners in the wedding industry, as recent religious freedom cases illustrate.

Cynthia and Robert Gifford, owners of Liberty Ridge Farm in New York, have decided to stop hosting wedding ceremonies after being fined for refusing to rent their space to a lesbian couple, The Blaze reported.

“The family will continue hosting wedding receptions, but ceremonies which have traditionally been hosted inside the Giffords’ home on the property or at another nearby location will immediately cease.”

When Administrative Law Judge Migdalia Pares ruled in mid-August, Religion News Service reported that the farm is both a business and a private residence, which complicated the case.

Quoting Adam Winkler, a law professor at the University of California, RNS reported that, although “public accommodation laws usually don’t apply to private residences,” the decision to start a home-based business removed the couple’s right to refuse service based on their religious beliefs.

“If you want to open yourself up to the public, there’s a cost, which is that you can’t discriminate,” said Winkler.

The Liberty Ridge Farm case was the latest in an ongoing conflict between religious freedom and same-sex marriage. Among the Christian business owners penalized for refusing to accommodate a gay wedding on religious grounds are a photographer in New Mexico, a florist in Washington and a wedding cake baker in Colorado.

In April, the Supreme Court rejected the appeal from New Mexico’s Elane Photography, ensuring that related debates will remain at the state level for the time being, the Associated Press reported.

AP noted that leaders from “Alabama, Arizona, Kansas, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Virginia had asked the high court to hear the case so lawmakers would have guidance in considering such measures.”

The U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) has been recording and storing nearly all domestic and international phone calls from Afghanistan, according to Wikileaks front man Julian Assange.

Wikileaks revealed the name of the country after The Intercept reported Monday that the NSA was actively recording and archiving virtually every cellphone call in the Bahamas and one other country under a program called SOMALGET. The Intercept said it did not name the second country because of concerns that doing so could lead to increased violence.

The voice interception program is part of a broader program called MYSTIC revealed in March when the Washington Post published documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.

MYSTIC is used to collect phonecall metadata and is used in Mexico, Kenya and the Philippines, according to The Intercept. SOMALGET enables the NSA to gather and store the contents of every conversation in an entire country, it said.

The program gives the NSA the capability to record and store the phone calls of an entire nation for up to 30 days, according to the Washington Post. The paper decided not to identify the countries affected on request of the U.S. government.

While The Intercept revealed the identity of five of the Mystic target countries, Assange said the decision not to name Afghanistan was censorship.

Such censorship strips a nation of its right to self-determination on a matter which affects its whole population, =””>he said on Wikileaks site. By denying an entire population the knowledge of its own victimization, this act of censorship denies each individual in that country the opportunity to seek an effective remedy, whether in international courts, or elsewhere, he said.

To protect his source, Assange did not disclose how Wikileaks confirmed the identity of the second country. However, he said, it can also be independently verified through forensic scrutiny of imperfectly applied censorship on related documents released to date, and through correlations with other NSA programs.

The censorship of a victim states identity directly assists the killing of innocent people, Assange said. The U.S. has been using mass interception programs as a key component in its drone targeting program that has killed thousands of people and hundreds of women and children in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia in violation of international law, he added.

We do not believe it is the place of media to aid and abet a state in escaping detection and prosecution for a serious crime against a population. Consequently Wikileaks cannot be complicit in the censorship of victim state X. The country in question is Afghanistan, he said.
