Do you know that there is a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland that celebrates the history and cultural significance of rock music and honours the contributions of those who have played an important role in the music’s creation and dissemination?
Established in 1983 by a group of leading figures in the music industry—including Atlantic Records cofounder Ahmet Ertegun and Jann Wenner, the publisher of Rolling Stone magazine—the nonprofit Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation was responsible for the creation of the museum and hall of fame, which began inducting honorees in 1986. After considering the bids of other American cities that had been pivotal to rock history (including New Orleans, Memphis, Chicago, San Francisco, and New York City), the foundation located the museum in Cleveland, where disc jockey Alan Freed had coined the term “rock and roll” in the 1950s and which had put together a package of public and private funding to aid in the facility’s development.

Discover your world with uSpread! – Today: Tokyo

Did you know that there’s a ‘Ice Cream City’ in Tokyo? The Japanese are an adventurous lot when it comes to their treats, and ice cream is no different. In the Sunshine City shopping mall of the bustling Ikebukuro section of Tokyo you’ll find Ice Cream City, where you can sample a dazzling (or horrifying) array of flavors, from octopus and snake to “basashi vanilla,” which contains chunks of horseflesh sushi. Sounds too bizarre? Maybe you’d prefer the gyu tan, or cow-tongue sorbet. Not that all the locals go for the exotics: Baskin-Robbins reports that the top flavor at its Japanese branches is good ol’ Strawberry Cheesecake.

Discover your world with uSpread! – Today: Abu Dhabi

uSpread provides interesting local facts and give you the opportunity to share whatever you think might be interesting for others – wherever you are and in real-time!

Did you know that Ferrari World, the world’s largest in-door amusement park located in Abu Dhabi, is home to the world’s fastest roller coaster? Aptly dubbed Formula Ross, the Formula One-inspired ride utilizes a hydraulic launch system instead of a traditional form of acceleration to launch the coaster across a flat stretch of track. The launch mechanism takes the coaster from a standstill to more than 60 km (100 mph) in just two seconds, quickly outpacing the acceleration times of even the fastest commercially available automobiles. By the end of the 1.4-mile course, the coaster tops 150 mph and exerts a staggering 1.7Gs of force on its riders. Riders are even required to wear a pair of sky diving goggle during the ride, helping to protect them from insects, dust, and other airborne particles that would otherwise prove harmful at such speeds.

Did you know that there’s a Jeans Museum in Zurich? It’s location in 2001 and encourage all denim heads to use their raw denim stuff as long as possible, and suggests that they never throw them away.  Over 12’000 beloved denim items have found a safe place to survive for ever in a real-life exhibit, instead of an online-only medium. The Jeans Museum displays the high potential of denim evolution in many jeans and denim jackets from the 50’s up to current pieces. Although the main items are heavily-worn raw denim items with extreme fades, all manner of denim goods are welcome in the brand-independent museum. As of this year, The Jeans Museum has expanded their location, allowing it even more room to display more pieces.

Discover your world with uSpread! – Today: Sicily

uSpread provides interesting local facts and give you the opportunity to share whatever you think might be interesting for others – wherever you are and in real-time!

Easter is one of the best times to visit Sicily. Temperatures are on the rise, plants and flowers are beginning to appear again and each town and village marks Holy Week with its own traditional event. Many of the processions are devoted to the Virgin’s desperate search for her child but others favour the dramatic struggle between good and evil.

Unsurprisingly, food plays a significant role in Easter festivities. This is the time for martorana, or pasta reale, the fruit-shaped marzipan that has become synonymous with Sicily, but marzipan ‘lambs’ also appear in the windows of local pasticcerie. The traditional dessert of cassata, made with sweetened ricotta, marzipan and candied fruit is also popular while cassatedde, a baked pastry tart with ricotta, sugar, egg and cinnamon is local to both Modica and nearby Ragusa.
