Besides the copious amount of gambling opportunities found here, there are also many other things to do. You can watch the choreographed water fountain, light and music show in front of the Bellagio where water is shot up to 460 feet in the air, catch one of Criss Angel’s famous magic shows, see a comedy act, take in a concert featuring one of your favorite artists or even ride some thrill rides at the Stratosphere Tower.
One of the Highest Grossing Movies of All Time ? Doctor-ZhivagoThe 1965 romantic-drama film Doctor Zhivago was based on the 1957 Boris Pasternak novel of the same name. The initial book had to be smuggled out of the U.S.S.R. in order to be published as the government was not accepting of the work. The book itself was a New York Times best-seller for 26 weeks mostly due to it being seen as an anti-communist symbol. The film was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and won 5 for: Best Original Score, Best Costume Design, Best Cinematography, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Art Direction. Doctor Shivago was also awarded 5 Golden Globes.
One of the Longest Living Animals ? The Turritopsis nutricula is often referred to as the “immortal jellyfish.” Once this species has become sexually mature it is capable of reverting back to the polyp stage and essentially starting its life over. The jellyfish accomplishes this through cell transdifferentiation in which its cells can turn into other types of cells. For example, its muscles can change into eggs or sperm and life regeneration can begin again. Most Turritopsis die when they are eaten by other animals or if they get a disease while in the initial polyp stage. It is unclear how long one of these creatures lives as knowledge of their regenerative capabilities was not discovered until the 1990’s. Additionally, it is hard to monitor them in their natural habitat and the life rejuvenating process is very quick. This makes it nearly impossible to get an accurate estimate of their age.
