An awe-inspiring engineering feat, Dubai Palm Islands is definitely the largest artificial islands on earth. These Islands are three man made islands in the form of massive palm trees connected to the beaches of Dubai. The first island is the Palm Jumeirah, Jebel Ali Palm second and the third is the Palm Deira which is the biggest of them all. This artificial archipelago located off the coastline of United Arab Emirates in Persian Gulf.
Dubai islands project was commissioned by Sheikh Mohammed in an effort to maximize beachfront property. Dubai's palm tree-shaped resort island on land built from the sea will contribute 120 km of beaches. Aside from the construction of the ambitious expansion, there is also the problem of constructing a mini city, which consists of 4,500 high-end residential homes, miles of roads, luxurious hotels and many amenities that will require basic human resources including electricity, safe drinking water and many more. This enormous project will position Dubai as one of the top tourist destinations in the world.
I will tell you why these islands have appeared and that they must satisfy. Dubai is an emirate that open sea about 50 km (an estimate) and the sites required for building projects are on the beach. To view course and especially to "park" in front of the yacht's property or even assembly.
Well when the beach was not available, and demand persists, the beach had invented. And it appeared artificial islands. Hence so sophisticated forms of the islands: they had to provide a larger opening to the ocean.
This new concept quickly caught on. 'Only a' product 'high-end, the latest wrinkle in the most creative developers metropolis. A new source of land, location of the trick of the planet Earth! The job went, the two islands were settled immediately, with mixed development, spectacular, exorbitant, and finally in Dubai's specific style ... In parallel to the World archipelago started building and other projects are still on the drawing board Nakheel, developer. But crisis compels us to winter a little ...
Where is the dream of similar islands: In Lebanon, wants to build a cedar shaped islands, the symbol of this country. Russia wants to try an island / an archipelago in Black in Sochi at the 2014 Olympics, at least that is speaking through the past years. Also in Japan there are several large airports built on artificial islands.
The Palm Islands are artificial peninsulas constructed of sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf by the Belgian company Jan De Nul and the Dutch company Van Oord.
The sand is sprayed by the dredging ships, which are guided by DGPS, onto the required area in a process known as rain-bowing because of the arcs in the air when the sand is sprayed. The outer edge of each Palm's encircling crescent is a large rock breakwater. The breakwater of the Palm Jumeirah has over seven million tons of rock.
The Palm Islands are an artificial archipelago (islands) in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Major commercial and residential infrastructures will be constructed by Nakheel Properties, a property developer in The UAE. The Belgian and Dutch dredging and marine contractors, Jan De Nul and Van Oord, some of the world's specialists in land reclamation, were hired to complete construction. The islands are the Palm Jumeirah, the Palm Jebel Ali and the Palm Deira.
Each settlement will be in the shape of a palm tree, topped with a crescent. The settlements will have a large number of residential, leisure and entertainment centers. The Palm Islands are located off the coast of The UAE in the Persian Gulf and will add 520 kilometers of beaches to the city of Dubai.
The first two islands will comprise of approximately 100 million cubic meters of rock and sand. The Palm Deira will be composed of approximately one billion cubic meters of rock and sand. All materials will be quarried in The UAE. Among the three islands, there will be over 100 luxury hotels, exclusive residential beach side villas and apartments, marinas, water theme parks, restaurants, shopping malls, sports facilities and health spas.
The creation of the Palm Jumeirah began in June 2001. Shortly after, the Palm Jebel Ali was announced and reclamation work began. The Palm Deira is planned to have a surface area of 46.35 square kilometers and was announced for development in October 2004.

This is an easy to use jig for use on a router table (with upgraded pre-drilled alloy insert) to produce accurate box comb joints. Well made and safe in use the Axminster Box Comb Jointer will produce box comb joints in 6mm, 10mm & 12mm segments with its included three comb plates and matching cutters. Consisting of a sturdy "traveller" made in three parts that carries the work over the router cutter with an integral handle, and using a rigid alloy table insert with slide mounts to guide the "traveller" accurately to produce a perfect joint. Ideal for drawers where the striking symmetry of the joint will be a highlight of the work, especially where a contrasting wood is used for the drawer base. Able to cope with asymmetric components, i.e. a drawer with a front that is thicker than the other components to enable a handle to be inset or allow a moulding decoration. A box comb joint is exceptionally strong due to the enormous amount of glue surface area, and so will withstand quite heavy loads.
Also available as a kit with the alloy table insert (measuring 306 x 229mm).

We demonstrate the simple combustive oxidation of iron by burning a common household item: Steel wool.
Normally we do not think of iron as being flammable, this is because bulk iron doesn't self-sustain its burning like most flammable materials. But the strands of steel wool are thin enough with enough surface area that heat produced is self-sustaining and will continue to burn through if there is enough air present.
To do this, simply pull apart and fluff up the steel wool to separate the strands. Then simply set it on fire. The steel wool should then burn flamelessly creating iron oxide.
You can also use a 9-volt battery and short out the terminals across the steel wool, the resistive heating should be hot enough to start it lit.
Much has changed in the past few years of wingsuit design. With the most modern wingsuits, we're flying on terrain that is much flatter than ever before. Subscribe To X-Treme BaseJump Here: *******goo.gl/VXLnW
Now the best pilots are buzzing terrain at a glide ratio of 2.5:1, at high speeds and with a comfortable margin. They are also jumping from short, and positive, exit points.
A whole new range of possibilities now exist, and the Aura represents our most advanced suit to date.
The difference in start arc and glide, compared to the Colugo, is not huge - but it is noticeable. The starts are a bit faster, and the glide performance is better. The suit does have more surface area and requires experience and practice to fly well, but overall there is not a big reduction in agility.
The AURA features a slightly different profile in the arm wing, and a small increase in leg wing volume. We've fine-tuned the inlets for this volume and profile change, and added a slightly slicker leading edge design which fits tightly over your arm. The suit is quite comfortable to fly, and you will notice the increase in efficiency.
Overall, the Aura really gives a feeling of smooth power while terrain flying. Thanks to its excellent start, you'll be able to enter your terrain flying line with more altitude -- and when it's time to pull up, the efficiency and power of the Aura gives you an incredible flare, which means you can stay connected longer to your line, and pull higher. We've seen crazy glide figures when pulling out of dives.
The pull is of course very clean - this is a priority for us on all of our suits. Consistent internal arm wing pressure at all angles of attack, combined with the arced wrist and flexible glideskin, means that you can get your PC quickly and safely and then reach your brakes immediately.
The Rapid Arm Deployment allows you to get your hands on your risers before deployment is complete, which can help to prevent line twists and work on canopy malfunctions early - so please practice this skill extensively.
We're really excited about this new suit and we look forward to hearing about your flights with it. From all of our team, thank you for flying Squirrel! We'll see you up there.

These studies showed no prediction of erect penis size based on height, race, or size of hands/feet/flaccid penis size. Black, White, and Asian men were all compared, and no statistically significant difference was found among the races.
Here are a few of the average penis sizes by country in centimetres:
Republic of Congo, 18
South Africa 15.2
New Zealand 13.9
South Korea 9.6
North Korea 9.6
Men the world over have similar size penises. You see men of all races and nationalities on naturist (nudist) beaches in Europe and they are all about the same size.
It is my assertion that penis size is RELATIVE due to the location of evolution or adaption from ones surroundings. For instance an Inuit man in Alaska could have an 8-inch penis but he would evolve to have a highly hidden penis to avoid losing it to frostbite.
In sharp contrast an African man in South Africa could have the same 8-inch penis, but his would not need to retract so much for protection from harsh winters; in fact, it would stay more relaxed, thus increasing surface area to dissipate heat. So upon standing these two together in a none-aroused state, one would clearly think the penis of an Inuit was much smaller, then upon them both getting erect they would be the exact same. This, in my opinion, is the reason for penis stereotypes. While this may be merely my observations, the part about location evolution/adaption affecting the penis is a fact.
This makes perfect sense. Since the size of a male's reproductive organs is not only affected by genetics, but also by how much testosterone that body produces.
Having a larger penis only has one real evolutionary advantage. It allows the male to deliver the sperm farther into the woman's birth canal, slightly increasing the chance for the sperm to impregnate the ovum.
Although some studies will show a little difference in size between ethnicity and nationalities, the research is very limited and outdated, taken with individual groups of consenting males. There would need to be much greater Worldwide research to conclude a definitive answer to whether one Country/nationality/ethnicity is bigger than another, but it is highly unlikely that this could take place under strict clinical conditions.
At this time we can only give the World average penis size of 9.5cm (3.3/4'') flaccid, 15.3cm (6'') erect
