    In this photo dated Thursday, July 26, 2012, a public transport boat crosses the water as people enjoy swimming at Jumeirah open beach with the city skyline in background, Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Not all Dubai beaches are hidden behind high-end hotels and waterfront palaces. Jumeirah Open Beach is one of the city's most popular, drawing everyone from Russian tourists and Arab families to Indian and Pakistani migrant workers relaxing on their day off. One you've had your fill of the white sand beach and sparkling Gulf waters, turn around to take in the view of Dubai's futuristic skyline. Facilities include showers and a rare cycle path. The nearby Jumeirah Beach Park offers more greenery and less ogling, but the upgrade comes with a 5 dirham ($1.36) entry fee. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili)

    FILE - In this Feb. 2, 2010 file photo, Secretary of the Interior, Ken Salazar, left. and Deputy Secretary of the Interior David Hayes, take in the view aboard the U.S. Coast Guard's Ida Lewis buoy tender while on an information gathering tour of Nantucket Sound regarding the viability of the Cape Wind power project. Behind them is a 190-foot meteorological tower, part of the potential Cape Wind site. Federal Aviation Administration officials felt political pressure to approve the planned wind farm, and did so amid internal disagreements over how to ensure the wind turbines wouldn?t interfere with local radar and compromise airplane safety, according to FAA documents obtained by the project?s opponents.

    Journalists reflected in a cabinet door look at the view of one of the room in Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny's flat right after a police search in in Moscow, Russia, June 11, 2012. Russian investigators searched the apartments of several protest leaders Monday and called them in for questioning Tuesday, making it difficult if not impossible for them to lead a mass demonstration against President Vladimir Putin planned for the June 12 national holiday.

    Girls take in the view of the Vincent Thomas Bridge from a blast shield aboard the battleship USS Iowa during the ship's move to its final berth at the Port of Los Angeles, where it will become a floating museum, in the San Pedro section of Los Angeles, California June 9, 2012. The USS Iowa served the U.S. for six decades, hosting U.S. presidents Franklin Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. The warship carried President Roosevelt across the Atlantic to his historic meeting with Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin during World War Two.

    The sky is seen at night just before the predicted merger between our Milky Way galaxy and the neighboring Andromeda galaxy, in this NASA photo illustration released May 31, 2012. About 3.75 billion years from now, Andromeda's disk will fill the field of view and its gravity will begin to create tidal distortions in the Milky Way. The view is inspired by dynamical computer modelling of the future collision between the two galaxies. The two galaxies collide about 4 billion years from now and merge to form a single galaxy about 6 billion years from now. REUTERS/NASA, ESA, Z. Levay and R. van der Marel (STScI), and A.

    This illustration released by NASA depicts a view of the night sky just before the predicted merger between our Milky Way galaxy, left, and the neighboring Andromeda galaxy. About 3.75 billion years from now, Andromeda's disk fills the field of view and its gravity begins to create tidal distortions in the Milky Way. The view is inspired by dynamical computer modeling of the future collision between the two galaxies. The two galaxies collide about 4 billion years from now and merge to form a single galaxy about 6 billion years from now. Astronomers in a Thursday, May 31, 2012, NASA news conference announced that observations from the Hubble Space Telescope detail a long-anticipated galactic smash-up. Astronomers had seen the Andromeda galaxy coming at us, but thought there was a chance that its sideways motion would make it miss or graze the Milky Way. Hubble readings say there's no chance of that.(AP Photo/NASA)

    In this undated image provided by NASA, Mars Rover Opportunity catches its own late-afternoon shadow in a view eastward across Endeavour Crater on Mars. The rover used a panoramic camera between about 4:30 and 5:00 p.m. local Mars time to record images taken through different filters and combined into this mosaic view. Most of the component images were recorded during the 2,888th Martian day, or sol, of Opportunity's work on Mars, which corresponds to March 9, 2012 on Earth. The view is presented in false color to make some differences between materials easier to see, such as the dark sandy ripples and dunes on the crater's distant floor. Opportunity has been studying the western rim of Endeavour Crater since arriving there in August 2011. (AP Photo/NASA/JPL-Caltech/Cornell/Arizona State University)

    People sit down to admire the view on Eiffel tower Paris Monday May 7, 2012, one day after the second round of the Presidential elections. France handed the presidency Sunday to leftist Francois Hollande, a champion of government stimulus programs who says the state should protect the downtrodden, a victory that could deal a death blow to the drive for austerity that has been the hallmark of Europe in recent years.
