It has become somewhat of a running joke that Bing provides embarrassingly low-quality search results compared to Google. In practice, however, that is proven simply untrue. Google and Bing provide very similar search results, contradictory to common knowledge.

Canada’s most recent election, when voters ousted longtime-incumbent Stephen Harper, is the longest in the Great White North’s history. However, those eleven weeks pale in comparison to the quadrennial marathon that occurs south of the border.

The Italian flag flies next to the Altare Della Patria, a national monument dedicated to King Victor Emmanuel II, the first king of a united Italy. The gigantic building is adorned with Corinthian columns, fountains, two rooftop statues of the Goddess Victoria riding on quadrigas (chariots led by four horses abreast), and a statue of the king himself. Police stood inside the monument to ensure that crowds did not linger by it for too long.

The giant sphere that holds the Spaceship Earth ride is visible in all parts of Epcot. Spaceship Earth looms over everything else in the park, so onlookers can see it no matter where they are in Epcot. The sphere, besides being an impressive sight, can also serve as a directional beacon, as it is located near the entrance of the park. This is most helpful to those who are stuck in the Food and Wine Festival, as they can easily guide themselves back to the entrance of Epcot.
