The Freesound Project is a collaborative Creative Commons database of sounds. In my searches I found ambient street sounds, a cat purring and children playing.
Sacred Destinations Travel Guide is a free travel guide to sacred sites around the world. You can either search by sacred sites by country or sacred sites by category. I just spent way too much time perusing the cathedral section.
Malcolm Gladwell, the amazing author of the book The Tipping Point has a blog. I haven't read his latest Blink, but it's on my list.
