AN AMAZING FLOATING FOOTBALL STADIUM

THE FLOAT@MARINE BAY, SINGAPORE

The Float@Marina Bay is the world's largest floating stage. It is located on the waters of the Marina Reservoir, in Marina Bay, Singapore. Made entirely of steel, the floating platform on Marina Bay measures 120 meters long and 83 meters wide, which is 5% larger than the soccer field at the National Stadium. The platform can bear up to 1,070 tonnes, equivalent to the total weight of 9,000 people, 200 tonnes of stage props and three 30-tonne military vehicles. The gallery at the stadium has a seating capacity of 30,000 people.

The floating stadium will be a venue for events on the waters of Marina Bay for five years from 2007. These events may include sports, concerts, exhibitions, and the arts and cultural performances. The National Day Parade will also be held annually for five years at the stadium, which is meant to be an interim or temporary venue in place of the National Stadium until the Singapore Sports Hub at Kallang is completed in 2014 for the Singapore Southeast Asian Games in 2015 and the future National Day Parade.

Watch it on YouTube : WATER FLOATING BUS

The Amfibus is an amphibious bus which was considered as a replacement for the Renfrew Ferry across the River Clyde. 
The Amfibus is based on a Volvo chassis and made by Dutch Amphibious Transport Vehicles BV, Nijmegen, Gelderland. Each Amfibus costs £700,000.Propulsion in the water is by water jets. The Amfibus is capable of 60 mph (97 km/h) on land and 8 knots (15 km/h; 9.2 mph) on water.

When SPT ceased to operate the Renfrew Ferry on 31 March 2010, one option for replacement was the Amfibus, capable of both driving on the road and sailing across the river. The Amfibus had previously been trialled by Splashtours in Rotterdam Harbour, where it successfully coped with the wash from tugs and cargo ships. Trials on the Clyde took place on 8 and 9 February 2010. It was not without problems as one of the bus' airbags worked loose. The Amfibus was not selected to continue the service. However in July 2011 a similar vehicle started a tourist cruise service running direct from Schiphol airport to the Amsterdam canals.

E-CIGARETTE

Watch it on YouTube : ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE

An electronic cigarette, also known as an e-cigarette, personal vaporizer or PV, is an electronic inhaler that vaporizes a liquid solution into an aerosol mist, simulating the act of tobacco smoking. Electronic cigarettes are no longer marketed as smoking cessation aids or tobacco replacement in most countries. There may be similarities between conventional and some electronic cigarettes in the physical design and the nicotine release, which may approximate the same amount of nicotine as a conventional cigarette. There are many electronic cigarettes which do not resemble conventional cigarettes at all. The amount of nicotine contained can be chosen by the user, with some choosing no nicotine at all.

Hon Lik, a Chinese pharmacist, is widely credited with the invention of the first generation electronic cigarette. In 2000, he came up with the idea of using a piezoelectric ultrasound-emitting element to vaporize a pressurized jet of liquid containing nicotine diluted in a propylene glycol solution.
