This innovative restaurant is the first of its kind in the world, and is part of a US $5 million re-build of Rangalifinolhu Island, one of the twin islands that make up Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.

When Stan Munro started Toothpick City I in 2003, he convinced his wife that this might be an actual job. Whether she really believed him, or just reveled at the thought of a husband spending all his time in the basement, she supported him. She helped him in every way imaginable, and when Toothpick City sold in 2005, she helped him spend the money.

“My wife is the only sponsor I’ve ever needed,” Stan admits. “She’s a pretty good boss, and she doesn’t mind if I work all day in my underwear”

Stan was born in Rochester, NY in 1970. He has family in New York City and Seattle, WA. Before making large toothpick structures for a living, he was the “wacky morning guy” on 13WHAM-TV, in his hometown of Rochester, NY. He worked at other TV stations in Albany, NY, Watertown, NY, and Seattle, WA.

An airport is the first thing we see when we visit a new country, and having a pleasant and comfortable experience there sets the tone of our impression of the country. An airport consists of at least one surface such as a runway, a helipad, or water for takeoffs and landings, and often includes buildings such as hangars and terminal buildings.

Airports are the great pyramids of the modern age: these grand architectural monuments express both the pinnacle of human engineering and the frenetic nature of our lives. And, several modern airports designed by the world’s leading architects fascinate people.

King Fahd International Airport (Saudia Arabia

KING FAHD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (SAUDIA ARABIA)
King Fahd International Airport is located 20 kilometers (about 12 miles) northwest of Dammam (Saudi Arabia). It is the largest airport in the world in terms of land area (780 km²), thus making it larger than the nearby country of Bahrain. The airport’s basic infrastructure was complete by the end of 1990, which allowed the Allied forces engaged in the first Gulf War in early 1991 to use the field for the storage of military aircraft.

Beijing Capital International Airport is the biggest airport of the world and has undergone a major renovation and expansion project before the 2008 Olympics. The airport was built in a record time — only four years. The designers, Sir Norman Foster and partners claim that it is the world’s largest and most advanced airport building.

 

The airport is very efficient in terms of operations, pessengers’ comfort, sustainability and access to natural light and even has a gigantic terminal built in the shape of the traditional Chinese dragon. It is 17 per cent bigger than London’s Heathrow Airtport, and has a total of five flours and three terminals.

This airport opened in 2001 and resemble a bird in flight when viewed from the air. Incheon International Airport is located 32 miles from Seoul, west of Incheon, on Yeongjong-Yeongyu Island in the Yellow Sea.

 

The stainless steel aerofoil roof and manicured garden conceal a hub of underground transport including trains, buses, car parking and more. Security facilities are state-of-the-art and medical inspection equipment is also very advanced, in response to terrorist threats and various epidemics in Southern Asia. As a result Incheon International Airport is considered Asia’s most technologically facilitated airport.

This airport is also currently Asia’s sixth busiest airport. The unique design and seamless operation has earned it recognition as second best airport in the world by aviation research company Skytrax.

China's Fastest Train

BEIJING (AFP) – China on Saturday unveiled what it billed as the fastest rail link in the world — a train connecting the modern cities of Guangzhou and Wuhan at an average speed of 350 kilometres (217 miles) an hour.

The super-high-speed train reduces the 1,069 kilometre journey to a three hour ride and cuts the previous journey time by more than seven and a half hours, the official Xinhua news agency said.

Work on the project began in 2005 as part of plans to expand a high-speed network aimed at eventually linking Guangzhou, a business hub in southern China near Hong Kong, with the capital Beijing, Xinhua added.

“The train can go 394.2 kilometres per hour, it’s the fastest train in operation in the world,” Zhang Shuguang, head of the transport bureau at the railways ministry, told Xinhua.

Test runs for the service began earlier in December and the link officially went into service when the first scheduled train left the eastern metropolis of Wuhan on Saturday.
