Japan Plans To Build Fastest Train In The World

The Central Japan Railway Company has announced that it plans to build the fastest train in the world, between Tokyo and Nagoya, to be completed by 2027, a next-generation maglev built at a cost of 64 billion dollars.

“Maglev,” or magnetically levitated trains travel above ground through an electromagnetic pull and powerful magnets elevate the train above the track, cutting down friction. The only maglev train now in commercial operation is in Shanghai.

The company expects speeds up to 310 miles per hour, shaving travel time between the two cities to 40 minutes from about 95 minutes. (Trains currently in use top out at about 167 miles per hour.) An extension of the high-speed line to Osaka is planned by the end of 2045.

Amazon Eve: Super Tall Model Hopes to Win Guinness World Record

At 6 feet 8 inches, model Amazon Eve is set to take her career to new heights. The Guiness Book of World Records certified “World’s Tallest Model” (who also makes money working as a dominatrix) was at the Playboy Mansion for a party last week where “the bunnies sized me up and treated my body like a stripper pole!”

The Federation of World Records has recognized her as the tallest, prettiest lady of the land and the Guinness World Records folks will take a good look at her next month.

But Amazon Eve’s not worried. She remarked, “They are going to measure me at morning, noon and night, so we’ll see. However, the previous record holder is 6 foot 4, so it looks good.”

David Moye writes that 30 percent of Amazon Eve’s income comes from modeling gigs — she also does some wrestling and acting on the side, and is trained as a paralegal.

She said, “Mainstream modeling wants you small and weak,” adding, “I’m plus-sized and I’m thin and super-fit. I’d like to homogenize what ‘sexy’ means. It’s not just what’s on a magazine cover.”

She recently visited the Playboy mansion and told Fox News, “Sure I would do Playboy. I would need to reduce my muscle mass and soften up a bit, but Hefner is the only one I would pose nude for, because he does it so tastefully.”

Take a look at some videos of Amazon Eve.

Somali Pirates Seize a Yacht, the Quest With 4 Americans on Board

U.S. officials confirmed that a yacht with four Americans aboard has been seized by Somali pirates in the waters of the Indian Ocean. The yacht is about 58 ft in size and belongs to Jean and Scott Adam, who have been sailing the boat around the world for the past seven years. The advocacy group Ecoterra International says its monitoring of regional maritime activity off the coast of East Africa indicates four Americans aboard the yacht S/V Quest were seized by pirates 240 nautical miles off the coast of Oman.

It is not clear whether the Adams — who were on a worldwide cruise — are onboard.

The U.S. military is prepared to intervene in the situation if necessary, said Rear Adm. Charles Gaouette, deputy commander of the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet, based in Bahrain.

Jean and Scott Adam — along with two other unidentified Americans — were attacked by pirates in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Somalia.

The U.S. military is weighing a response, a spokesman told The Associated Press on Saturday.

“We’re aware of the situation and we continue to monitor it,” the military spokesman said.

There have been no reports of a ransom request.

The Adams have been sailing around the world for more than six years on their yacht, the Quest, according to a website the couple has, detailing their journey.

“Another aspect of our travels is friendship evangelism – that is, finding homes for thousands of Bibles,” the website states.

The couple belongs to a yacht club in Marina Del Rey, Calif.

“We were so unhappy being ‘dirt dwellers’ during our time in the States that another floating abode had to be acquired,” Jean Adam wrote on the site.

A post earlier this year said they would refuel in Djibouti waters, another pirate flash point.

“Djibouti is a big refueling stop,” said the post, which is not dated. “I have no idea what will happen in these ports, but perhaps we’ll do some local touring.”

“If the owners are onboard, it would be a sad log for the couple on their seven-year world journey,” Ecoterra International, a piracy tracking group, said.

Piracy has flourished off the coast of Somalia, which has not had an effective government for two decades. In April 2009, pirates seized the U.S.-flagged Maersk Alabama, leading to a standoff in the Indian Ocean.

U.S. forces moved to rescue American Capt. Richard Phillips after seeing a pirate aiming a weapon on his back, officials said at the time. Three pirates were killed and one was arrested.

The Somali man arrested was sentenced to more than 30 years in prison.

10 Fascinating Floating City Concept

With both population and man’s greed for money increasing at galloping speed, land mass on earth is turning into concrete jungle. People have already felt the pinch of property prices rising skywards which is due to shortage of space in urban areas. So it dawned upon few brains that lets plunge into the water bodies for is occupies as much as 70% of earth’s surface. And voila, we have Gyre, the Floating City Concept which will rest on humongous oceans and create a new space for modern human civilization.

Here’s the 10 most amazing albeit convincing concepts of floating cities.

1. Embassy of Drowned Nations: Floating City:

The Embassy of Drowned Nations, in Fort Denison, Australia, is specifically designed for people who have lost their homes to rising sea levels. But it not all about the ‘poetic justice’; this innovative conception also incorporates the inverted design which causes it to sink deeper into the harbor when the water level rises, while at the same time exposing new land in the center of the refuge.

2. BOA – A sustainable floating city:

The Boston Arcology (BOA) will be designed to provide safe and most importantly dry living space to over 15,000 people after the ‘post apocalyptic’ scenario of rising ocean levels washing away our cities. The floating city will provide housing along with other services such as hotels, offices, retail, museums, condominiums and a city hall.

3. Green Float – A carbon negative floating city:

A motley crew of scientists, engineers in Japan have embarked upon this momentous project, which aims to build a tower that is 1km tall and has a vertical farm counteracted on a floating concrete pad!

4. Lilypad – A green safe haven of the future:

The Lilypad will be constructed as a luxurious retreat for climatic refugees in the year 2100. Though inspired by Noah’s Ark, nothing will be ancient about the advanced green technology used here. The lower half of this floating city will be submerged in water, while the upper half will protrude above to harness the abundant solar energy.

5. Harvest City In Haiti”:

Thought of as solution to house the affected people of the recently earthquake ravaged Haiti, this innovative, gem of an idea by architect E. Kevin Schopfer and Tangram 3DS, is much more than damage control. The idea promotes the ambitious vision of – a number of floating island cities constituting of a 30,000 strong self sufficient community, all regenerated by several imbued agricultural and industrial facilities.

6. Floating City in Russia:

The Eco-Techno City is conceived as a floating mega city built on an elaborate framework of numerous small man-made islands. The main residential hub will be located in a central 500 ft ‘green’ skyscraper featuring vertical farms, solar panels and even rainwater collectors. This skyscraper will be surrounded by recreational and service zones on the outer perimeter.

7. Gyre- A Floating City Concept for Modern Human Civilization:

Contrived by home design studio Zigloo, this enterprising design would incorporate a ’sky’-scraper, named as the Gyre at a depth of 400m under water. The arduous conception will cover an area of more that 40 football fields with completely self-sufficient working and living zones.

8. Freedom Ship City concept:

Fundamentally this concept calls for a moving city-vessel in the sea albeit with gargantuan dimensions. This mobile floating behemoth will have a length of 4,500 feet, a width of 750 feet, and a height of 350 feet. The city will feature ostentatious living conditions, a duty free shopping mall and a commercial zone encompassing an area of more than 1.7 million sq ft!

9. Water-scraper – A Self-Sufficient City at Sea:

Water-scraper epitomizes the very evolutionary end result of green technology. The city will generate its own electricity by using wave, wind, solar power and even kinetic energy. Moreover there will be farms, a small forestland along with well defined quarters for working and living of people.

10. Floating City Concept by Ahearn Schopfer Architects:

Designed by Ahearn Schopfer Architects and located in New Orleans, this impressive conception is a perfect ‘floating’ amalgamation of residential and commercial zone. The grandiose design features 20,000 housing units at an average of 1,100 sq ft, three hotels, 1,500 time-share units and 500,000 sq ft of retail space. Also included are three casinos, 500,000 sq ft of commercial condominiums, parking for 8,000 cars, a school, 100,000 sq ft of cultural facilities and a 20,000 sq ft health facility.

Largest Public Library in United Kingdom – Library of Birmingham

Mecanoo designed the Library of Birmingham, England with the goal of solidifying Centenary Square as a center for arts, culture, and entertainment. The library design aims to integrate the buoyant cultural aspect of the zone, and transform that into well defined spaces within the building. It will be amalgamated to the Repertory Theater next door, even sharing programs and events, along with a 600 seat theater inside the library itself.

The Library will also feature a unique outdoor amphitheatre for performances that is sunk into the ground and attached on an underground level to the main structure.

To pay tribute to the industrial artisan history of Birmingham, Mecanoo added the ornamental circle/star shaped design that adorns each exterior wall. The façade masks an interior designed around eight cylindrical rotundas that house various collections and let in natural light. To engage visitors to the surrounding Centenary Square, Mecanoo added a cantilevered balcony to overhang the square.

Environmental sustainability was a key goal, among other measures, they employed sun shading and reflective materials in the windows of the transparent façade, which will also respond to environmental conditions and either open or close for fresh air intake and flow. They are also incorporating grey water pumps and taking advantage of the passive solar heating and natural lighting made possible by the facade.

Upon completion, the Library of Birmingham will be the largest public library in the United Kingdom and will replace the Birmingham Central Library, a brutalist design set to be demolished after the Library of Birmingham is completed in 2013.

Trials Of Renewable Energy In Highways

Renewable energy technologies are likely to become more important as other energy sources become depleted and the cost of power generation using fossil fuels rises. Renewable sources of energy have considerable potential for increasing security of supply although, in most cases, they require significant initial investment. Recognising the importance of developing renewable energy resources, the Highways Agency commissioned a preliminary scoping study in 2001 to explore available methods and assess the possibility of renewable energy generation being exploited within the highway network. This study recommended a positive response by Highways Agency in implementing full-scale trials of renewable energy generation.

Among the various means of transportation, highways cover the widest and in effect the greatest area of our precious landmass. In context of the present scenario, spaces required for energy generation are becoming scarce day by day, and yet paradoxically no substantial effort has been made to make use of the very spaces incorporated by the highways themselves. Make no mistake – solar panels have been laid beside roads, wind turbines have been installed in breezy areas; but the highways themselves continue to be the least utilized ones.

Trends :

1. Solar Roadways

The Solar Roadway is a prototype of an ‘intelligent’ road with solar panels imbued onto the road itself. Along with generating clean electricity, these panels can also provide data about damages and other information, by the help of microprocessing boards embedded in them.

2. Solar Arch on Highways

The Solar Arch is a concept formulated by industrial designer Tyson Steele. It will provide covering for rural roads, that in turn can generate renewable solar energy for off-grid highway lighting. The Solar Arch can also supplement electricity demands in neighboring low capacity required areas.

3. Jet Stream Super-Highway

Conceived by industrial designer David Huang, this unique concept features vehicles extracting energy from the road infrastructure and roads in turn drawing energy from the environment. Based on an open-return wind tunnel design that produces a continuous stream of air flow from the environment, the roadway is shaped like a half-pipe in cross section. It has a series of solar-powered turbines and fans hovering above to push air into the road pathway, in addition to continuously drawing air at a controlled rate by outer drawing vents on the flanks – forming a cycle effect.

4. E Turbine on the Highways

Conceptualized by industrial designer Pedro Gomes and aptly named the E Turbine, it is basically a wind generation system that uses the air movement emanated from passing traffic to produce and accumulate energy. Supposedly it can also work with street and road lighting, information panels and emergency phones.

5. Green Roadway Project – Solar and wind generators mounted on Highways

Contrived by inventors Gene Fein and Ed Merritt, this >progressive project is based upon the green dictum of endless highways becoming metamorphosed into renewable energy generators, which could one day power our cities with clean energy and can also offer electricity for roadside charging of electric vehicles.

Dispute Over Dubai’s ‘Sinking’ Islands

DUBAI A cluster of near by 300 artificial islands off Dubai’s coast in the shape of a global map is stable, the island developer Nakheel insists, despite a court claim alleging that “The World” was neglected and eroding away.

The islands, many of which represent individual countries and which can only be accessed by boat or helicopter, were meant to be one of the Gulf city-state’s crowning developments.

Builders have announced plans for a few of the islands, but development has yet to begin on most of them.

A company contracted to provide logistics support to the islands filed a claim with a tribunal that handles cases related to the emirate’s troubled Dubai World conglomerate, alleging that third-party developers had not been encouraged to develop the islands, and said they were being hit by erosion.

Veer° TOWERS – First Truly Transparent Building in Las Vegas

Murphy/Jahn Architects designed a new transparent set of towers for Sin City naming as Veer° TOWERS. The development features two towers that are inclined at dramatic opposing angles. Defined by simplicity and dynamism, each of the towers will have 37 floors and include about 400 residences.

The high-rise residences float between the base, with its retail functions and 80′ tall lobbies featuring public artwork by Richard Long, and the private amenities and outdoor infinity pools on the roof. The buildings are at once robust and delicate. Slender towers that are clad in clear, non-reflective glass, veer° becomes the first truly transparent building in Las Vegas, creating a visual dialogue between the desert and the residents. In a desert climate, that alone represents a great technological and even cultural challenge. Staggered panels of clear and fritted yellow glass cut glare and provide abundant natural daylight, while animating the facades and enlivening the complex with a welcome shot of color. Horizontal louvers on the east, south and west facades create a repetitive texture to the façade that provides shade from the desert sun.

The manifesto for the project was to exhibit urban responsibility, pay attention to the building’s performance in terms of function and systems, use advanced and available technology, accept the aesthetic of construction and elevate it to a level of art. With the support of the client, these fundamental ambitions allowed us to achieve LEED Gold certification by the USGBC despite having the lowest budget, and most technically challenging design in the city centre complex. veer° TOWERS in turn defines city centre as modern and visionary in constructing and open-ended micro urban system that will inform the future growth of Las Vegas.

Google Earth 6 The Next Generation Of Realism

Google released a new version of Google Earth V6 with new 3D tress and integrated street view upgrade.Google Earth 6 available for Windows, OS X and Linux and get adds three major updates to the virtual geographical tool…….

Google has announced the release of Google Earth 6. The latest version is available for Windows, OS X and Linux. The update that follows Google Earth 5.2 release earlier this year adds three major updates to the virtual geographical tool.The Google Maps Street View experience is now fully integrated into Google Earth. Pegman (the small guy that represents your Street View position) is now placed alongside the Google Earth navigation controls, where he launches Street View just like he does in Google Maps. Just pick up Pegman and drop him wherever you see a highlighted blue road to fly right down to the ground.

3D buildings has been there on Google Earth for some time now. Trees have now been added to liven up the environment. To enjoy these leafy additions to Google Earth, make sure you turn on the 3D buildings layer on the left side panel. As a starting point, try a search for “Palace of Fine Arts San Francisco.” Once you arrive at your destination, click the zoom slider. You’ll then be taken down to the ground where you can use our new ground-level navigation to walk among the trees. Historical imagery in Google Earth allows users to look at map views of times like Warsaw in 1935, London in 1945 and Port-au-Prince Haiti before and after the January earthquake. The feature was first added in Google Earth 5, but it wasn’t always clear when and where it was available. With this version, Google has made it easy to discover historical imagery.
