From a strange tomb to a place where aliens may be kept to the secret HQ of lego to some weird places in North Korea...these are 7 SECRET Buildings You Can't Visit. Narration provided by JaM Advertising New Mexico www.tasteofjam.com The Skull and Bones is a secret society of Yale University undergraduates, with famous alumnus including politicians, lawmakers, members of the Rockefeller family, and three former US presidents including George W Bush. The organisation's headquarters, known as the Tomb, are thought to contain some astonishing and shocking artefacts such as stolen coffins where sex acts take place, a set of Hitler's silverware, and the skulls of several famous historical figures. Frat parties at the Tomb sound pretty bad-ass. Hangar 18 at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio is a major source of conspiracy theories regarding alien spacecraft, but the only thing we know for certain about this mysterious building is that inside some form of aviation technology research is taking place, and it's something the military does not want the world to know about. Because some of the entries on this list are a little heavy we're gonna lighten things up just briefly with a look at Lego's design headquarters in Billund, Denmark. Whereas the main Lego HQ is located in a huge building with a giant Lego brick planted out front, their secretive design headquarters is actually based in a nearby two-storey office block with no apparent signage or branding. Inside this building a small room of operations is located where only a chosen few of Lego's 3000 local employees have ever set foot. Pyongyang North Korea, 1987. Construction begins on the Ryugyong Hotel, a project intended to show the world just how powerful and glorious the North Korean regime is. Cut to 2016, and the hotel is still not finished nearly 30 years later, making it the Half Life three of construction projects. Bureau 39 is another North Korean secret location, but this time we have no confirmed pictures of the building, because this is the site of some extremely shady goings on. Bureau 39 is reportedly where Kim Jong Un's Korean Workers Party orchestrates and executes various illegal activities which take place across the globe, and the CIA estimate that the operations conducted within this one building are responsible for counterfeit US currency production, illegal weapons sales, narcotic production and distribution, and an international insurance fraud scheme, all of which rake in between five hundred million and one billion dollars per year. It's three in a row for North Korea as in 2015 this ominously designed building was opened - the North Korean Science and Technology Complex known as Ssuk Islet. See how it's shaped like a giant atom? Like something a super-villain would do to his super-secret volcano base? That can't be good, that can't be good at all. Construction began in 2014 but Kim Jong Un wanted it built quicker than that. Built in 1994 Vauxhall Cross is one of London's most iconic buildings, and as well as being the place James Bond gets a paycheck it is also the real-life home of Britain's SIS and MI6 intelligence services.

The key to a good life is connection - real relationships. But there's a disturbing new trend: we are becoming disconnected from our environment both at home and abroad. Fortunately we can connect when we prioritize human interaction. The sharing economy isn’t new. We just forgot about it for awhile. From a young age, Gerard has been interested in community, design and hospitality. His first attempt at creating a community was in Africa where he tried to set up a backpacker’s that provided education and training in hospitality for the locals. It never got off the ground but his enthusiasm didn’t wane. With his love for travel, he thought the hotel industry must be fun to work in and so, in an effort to expand his knowledge in hospitality, he worked as a hotel analyst advising banks and hotel developers across the globe at HVS International and operational roles with Marriott, Hyatt and Conran Restaurants. The entrepreneurial bug didn’t wane though, and so he sold his home and co-founded Yotel, a pioneer of micro hotels. Cleverly using aircraft designers and innovative technology, Yotel was able to provide a superior product at an affordable price which even included motorised reclining beds and hourly occupancy! They developed hotels inside major global airport terminals providing rest for weary travellers and then built a city centre hotel near Times Square, New York with 669 cabins and a luggage Yobot. With Yotel then successfully developing hotels across the US, Europe and Asia he decided that the next venture needed a greater social mission. He is now CEO and Co-Founder of Society; a co-living brand that aims to bring the real benefits of community to people’s lives through technology and well-designed apartment buildings. Gerard contributes to the Oxford Brookes University Entrepreneurs program with lectures and as a “Dragon” on the final pitch. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
