Amazing happenings-Greenpix Zero Energy Wall

Greenpix is a Zero Energy Media Wall in Beijing created by Simone Giostra & Partners and the Arup folks. It’s been added to the curtain wall of the Xicui entertainment complex near the site of the 2008 Olympic Games. It mixes the largest color LED display technology with a photovoltaic system which means that the wall burns the only energy it harvests during the day.

Fascinating events-Wedding cake slice sells for $1,830

Prince Charles And Diana wedding cake slice sells for $1,830:
A piece of wedding cake from Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer's wedding in 1981 was sold off for $1,830 by a former royal servant, according to an auctioneer's sale listing.
The large, 23 cm (9 inch) slice of cake icing, with a marzipan base, came from one of 23 official wedding cakes and was given to Moyra Smith who worked for the Queen Mother at Clarence House.
It was kept wrapped in cling film in an attic for the past 27 years. Auction house Dominic Winter Book Auctions, based in Gloucestershire, described the white icing as having a sugared on lay of the royal coat-of-arms coloured in gold, red, blue and silver, a small silver horseshoe and leaf spray.
The cake was sold on Wednesday to an unnamed bidder along with a typed letter signed by "Charles and Diana" thanking Mrs Smith for her contribution towards a clock they were given as a wedding present. The royal couple divorced in 1996.
"In view of its size, it is most likely that it was either from the side of a cake, or from the top of a single-tier cake. A highly unusual (and probably inedible) collector's item," read the description of the cake.
The auctioneer said the late Mrs Smith, a Scottish woman, worked at Clarence House, first in the kitchen and then moving to more general duties, and it was here that she was given the cake which was put up for sale by her family.
Her husband Donald told British media that his wife died last month, aged 78, and it was her wish for the cake to be sold after her death, with the money raised to go to charity.
The auction house also sold three autographed letters from Diana, who was killed in a car crash in Paris in August 1997, for between $1,350 to $1,135. The most expensive one was dated Dec. 17, 1990 and addressed to Eileen and Tracey. It read: "I was so very touched by all the lovely bottles that were in my Christmas bag today! Thank you both a million times for thinking of me. 1990 was the year that we met. At last, (!) & how wonderful our friendship was (& is) been. With special thanks & fondest love to you both."
Tracey is believed to be the daughter of Jo Malone, owner of a beauty products business based in London.

Strange facts-Hamsters

All pet hamsters are descended from a single female wild golden hamster found with a litter of 12 young in Syria in 1930. Inbreeding in humans significantly increases the chances of genetic defects, and is widely shunned. However, marrying aunts, uncles and cousins is still very common among European royal families - even the Queen of England and her husband Phillip are second cousins once removed.

Fascinating events-Hilton Maldives Undersea Restaurant, Rangali Island

Built entirely off-site, in Singapore, this undersea restaurant in the Maldives was based on the success of the National Centre Aquarium's design in Kuala Lumpur. It proved to be more of a pain to construct than first thought, with many recalculations to check centers of gravity, weight distributions and tidal flows. If this small design required so much fiddling before it became a reality, how many complications must be occurring with the larger resorts?

fascinating-events
Sitting 5m below sea level, the restaurant is able to serve 12 people at one sitting. Diners can sit back and enjoy watching life beyond the 5m wide viewing arch, which is made from acrylic and silicone sealed.
