The Power of Words


This short film illustrates the power of words to radically change your message and your effect upon the readers of your message.

It's (birds chirping, ocean waves, leaves rustling, child's laugher) making beautiful songs, and I cannot hear it.... forever. I understand... be kind to others for you don't know what battles they are struggling with. GREAT video.

Please remember that this is an advertisement with actors. We cannot know which wording would have produced better results.

I am posting it also as a reply to those people who previously complained and castigated me for using certain advertising words in our front page deliberately to make sure our board is always at the first page of any Google searches.

Only Turbo understood my actions and commented in support..... [clap.gif]

The Incredible Magdeburg Water Bridge in Germany
Have you ever seen a river over a river? AMAZING.....
Image

Even after you see it, it is still hard to believe! Water Bridge in Germany . What a feat!
Six years, 500 million euros, 918 meters long . . . now this is engineering!

This is a channel-bridge over the River Elbe and joins the former East and West Germany, as part of the unification project. It is located in the city of Magdeburg , near Berlin .. The photo was taken on the day of inauguration . .

Construction of the water link was started as early as in the 1930s but due to the World War 2 and subsequent division of Germany the work remained suspended till 1997. The aqueduct was finally completed and opened to the public in 2003.

Image

The Magdeburg Water Bridge is a navigable aqueduct in Germany that connects the Elbe-Havel Canal to the Mittelland Canal , and allows ships to cross over the Elbe River . At 918 meters, it is the longest navigable aqueduct in the world.

The Elbe-Havel and Mittelland canals had previously met near Magdeburg but on opposite sides of the Elbe . Ships moving between the two had to make a 12-kilometer detour, descending from the Mittelland Canal through the Rothensee boat lift into the Elbe, then sailing downstream on the river, before entering the Elbe-Havel Canal through Niegripp lock. Low water levels in the Elbe often prevented fully laden canal barges from making this crossing, requiring time-consuming off-loading of cargo.
