With Dubai becoming one of the fastest growing cities on Earth, it was only a matter of time before they were to compete on a global business market. Setting their sights high to compare with New York City and Tokyo, Business Bay is to rival in the ever-expanding trade and commerce industries. With the many resorts and islands available for living, the investment of a 'city within a city' as proclaimed by the developers of Business Bay, will be one worth making. This beautifully structured plan has been laid out and illustrated to display the designs of architects and dreamers alike. The nighttime skyline is lit up with an iridescent view of tall buildings and a reflective water canal running in between highways and the epicenter of the entire project.
a guy jumps from a building to another but fails. he falls down from a very tall building.
Faster than a speeding bullet, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound....Superman ate his fruits and vegetables, and if we want to run in a triathalon when we are 74, we need to eat them too. Just guess why men need lots of lycopene?
Today I found a big giant Clothespin and I found an art Exhibit called "Your Move" where they had Monopoly pieces, Chess pieces, BINGO tokens and more. Then I found tall buildings competing for the skyline. Then I stumbled across the St Peter & Paul Catholic Church which has the largest organ in Pennsylvania and artwork on the ceiling. Then we went through Chinatown and we found a Chinese Paper & Crafts store. Later on that night, we went and got a Philly Cheesesteak at JIM's!! Good stuff! Then later on, we went to Franklin Fountain and got some dessert.

Take a tour of Golden Gate Bridge at Sunset in San Francisco, United States – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
This is one of the most recognizable bridges in the world and has appeared in countless photos, movies, and paintings.
San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge is so named for its reddish orange paint which also suits the color palate of the sunset well.
Whether looking out towards the Joseph Strauss memorial, the Marin Headlands, into the city, or out to sea, the bridge is at its most beautiful as the sun descends.
As the sun goes down on the City by the Bay, the suspension wires of the bridge glow like filaments of fire.
There are innumerable viewpoints, lookouts, and tall buildings from which to enjoy the last of the San Francisco day.
To complement the bright gleam of the Golden Gate Bridge, the water of the San Francisco Bay flashes and glitters in the fading light.

The tallest building on Earth -- Burj Khalifa in Dubai -- is about to become second in line.
Saudi Arabia is already planning to build a new skyscraper in the port city of Jeddah -- almost twice as tall as the current world champ. The $30 billion project, named “the Kingdom Tower”, was officially approved by the Kingdom Holding Company on April 12th. (Video: CNN)
The height of the new skyscraper will be exactly one mile, which would make it the world’s tallest building.
According to Saudi Gazette:
“The height will take an elevator 12 minutes to get to the top .. .An 8.9-square-mile city will also be built around the Kingdom Tower, which can accommodate 80,000 people and an additional one million visitors.”
The building contractor should know how to get the job done. After all, as Mirror News reports, it has built the current record holding high-rise.
“Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP, which designed the Burj Khalifa, drew up the plans and skyscraper specialist Emaar, based in Dubai, is understood to have won the contract to build the tower outside the Red Sea port of Jeddah as the centre piece of a new city.”
Even though the project was recently approved, there’s already some criticism about it. The Daily Mail interviews the deputy editor of The Architects' Journal, who says:
“'The race to build the highest skyscraper is quite futile - where do you stop? ...These buildings are missing the point and are a symbol of an old fashioned way of thinking.”
However, this is not the only opinion on giant skyscrapers. When interviewed by The Wall Street Journal, Antony Wood, executive director of the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, says...
“The question isn't how tall they will go, but how well they will work in clusters ... What needs to come next is connections at higher levels. That will be another big step toward the city of the future.”
The owner of the project, the Kingdom Holding Company, is the largest company in Saudi Arabia, which is also a shareholder of Apple, McDonald's and Amazon. 94% shares of the company are held by the country’s royal member -- Prince Alwaleed.

Take a tour of Prambanan Temples in Yogyakarta, Indonesia – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The large, carved stone towers of the Prambanan Temples look like miniature mountains dotting the landscape.
These old Hindu holy places can be found in the countryside outside of Yogykarta city in Indonesia.
The sides of these temples are carved with images of the epic legends of heroes and gods.
This large compound was built in the ninth century, although it was abandoned not long after this.
The countryside surrounding the Prambanan Temples is lush, green and very scenic as a backdrop for the tall buildings.
The temple is dedicated to the three aspects of the Hindu god, Brahma, Shiva, and Vishnu.
Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood is a third person action-adventure video game with main emphasis on sandbox style gameplay in an open world of Rome. Like the previous installments, the gameplay's core mechanics are based on parkour movements, crowd-blending stealth, assassinations and melee fighting system. The combat system features several improvements and for the first time in the series, the game offers a multiplayer mode alongside 40+ hours of single-player gameplay.
The game introduces a new management system: the player can recruit new members by destroying any of fifteen "Borgia towers" around Rome where papal troops are stationed, then rescuing disgruntled citizens in their districts from harassing guards. The player, as Ezio, can then send them to assignments around Europe or call them for support during missions (if they are not already occupied). Tasking the novice Assassins makes them gain experience, and the player is able to customize their appearance, skills and weapon training to some degree by spending the skill points they have earned. Assassins can die on missions, from which they will not return. Ezio masters new gadgets, such as Leonardo da Vinci's parachute, which can be used when jumping from tall buildings, along with poison darts, a faster acting poison, a crossbow, and the ability to hold and throw heavier weapons like axes.
Ezio using the BAM system (Brotherhood Assist Move).
The primary setting is Rome, which has fallen into ruin due to the corrupt rule of the Borgia papacy and the Templars over the Papal States and concentrating all the wealth in the Vatican. Just like the town of Monteriggioni in Assassin's Creed II, the player is able to invest in the city and witness its development and unlock rewards. The player has to conquer and destroy Borgia towers to free city zones from the family's influence. Completing this unlocks new missions and opportunities. Rome is the biggest city ever created after the first two installments (Rome is three times bigger than Florence from Assassin's Creed II) and includes five varied districts: Vatican, Downtown, Tiber, Country and Antique. Unlike the previous installments, travel between different cities or regions is no longer present, as most of the action in the game takes place around the city of Rome. Instead, a series of tunnel networks throughout the city allow the player to travel to different sectors of the city with ease. However players will be able to explore the entire city of Rome, visit a part of Navarre, Spain and Monteriggioni in the present day.
Pulling off a heist and flirting with Elizabeth Banks, all while standing on the ledge of a tall building? Sam Worthington proves he's the master of multitasking.
Man on a Ledge hit theaters January 27.
