Which would you choose as the New Seven Wonders of the World? post #1  quote:



At the end of 2005, the New 7 Wonders Foundation panel chose 21 candidates from the top 77 nominees that had earned the most votes, and these 21 are now in the final stage of the competition to become the New Seven Wonders of the World. The official N7W 21 finalist candidates were announced by the panel's President, Prof. Federico Mayor, on January 1, 2006 in Zurich.

The final round of voting for the New 7 Wonders will continue throughout 2006 and half of 2007. Then, on July 7, 2007 -07.07.07, the dream of the N7W initiators will become a reality as the globe joins together to celebrate the New 7 Wonders of the World, as chosen by the world's population using modern communications technology.

Which ones would you vote for as the New Seven Wonders of the World? If you wish to vote for the seven you want, go to New 7 Wonders to pick your favorite monuments.

Be part of the making of history!

What decision are you talking about? I don't think you should be online while you're thinking about which pole to pick.

That is just awesome.

I guess this is Red Square. I don't know much. I need to go back to school. I expected a bunch of pictures of the pretty multi colored ice cream cone looking things to pop up when I did a search but there is a lot more to the Kremlin than I thought.

Yeah, the Gremlin is in Red Square, which is on the Red Sea. That's the sea Noah parted while freeing the Dutch. Bad thing about living in the Gremlin though is you can't get any food past midnight. No water, either. That's why Mussolini was such an unpopular leader there and was encassed in carbonite by the Romans. His body is still on display in Red Square next to King Arthur.

Public to choose the new seven wonders of the world

POSTED: 10:39 a.m. EST, November 16, 2006

GENEVA, Switzerland (AP) -- A global competition to name the new seven wonders of the world is attracting widespread interest, with more than 20 million people voting so far, organizers say.

The Egyptian pyramids are the only surviving structures from the original list of seven architectural marvels. Long gone are the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the Statue of Zeus at Olympia, the Temple of Artemis at Ephesus, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the Colossus of Rhodes and the Pharos lighthouse off Alexandria. Those seven were deemed wonders in ancient times by observers of the Mediterranean and Middle East.

Candidates for the new list have been narrowed down to 21, including the Eiffel Tower, Statue of Liberty, Taj Mahal and Peru's Machu Picchu. The public can vote until July 6, 2007, by Internet or phone. The seven winners will be announced July 7 in Lisbon, Portugal.

Choosing world wonders has been a continuing fascination over the centuries. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, or UNESCO, keeps updating its list of World Heritage Sites, which now totals 830 places.

The "New 7 Wonders of the World" campaign was begun in 1999 by Swiss adventurer Bernard Weber, with almost 200 nominations coming in from around the world.

Weber "felt it is time for something new to bring the world together" and to "symbolize a common pride in the global cultural heritage," said Tia B. Viering, spokeswoman for the campaign.

Weber's Switzerland-based foundation aims to promote cultural diversity by supporting, preserving and restoring monuments. It relies on private donations and revenue from selling broadcasting rights.

Nominations were whittled down by public votes to 77 last year. Then a panel of architectural experts, chaired by former UNESCO chief Federico Mayor, shortened the list to 21. Interest has grown as Weber and his 10-member team visit the 21 sites. Their final visit will be March 6 to New York's Statue of Liberty.

In addition to the Statue of Liberty, Pyramids, Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal and Machu Picchu, the finalists are the Acropolis; Turkey's Haghia Sophia; the Kremlin and St. Basil's Cathedral; the Colosseum; Germany's Neuschwanstein Castle; Stonehenge; Spain's Alhambra; the Great Wall; Japan's Kiyomizu Temple; the Sydney Opera House; Cambodia's Angkor; Timbuktu; Petra, Jordan; Brazil's Statue of Christ Redeemer; Easter Island; and Chichen Itza, Mexico.
