Sukhoi Superjet 100 Factory

We've got used to think that Russian production factories are, as a rule, half-destroyed buildings with leaking roofs and crooked staircases ending at the ceiling. However, the aircraft construction factory where they produce Sukhoi Superjets 100 in Komsomolsk-on-Amur, is a sufficient refutation of the charge. 

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 (Russian: Сухой Суперджет 100) is a modern, fly-by-wire regional jet in the 75- to 95-seat category. With development starting in 2000, the plane was designed by the civil aircraft division of the Russian aerospace company Sukhoi in co-operation with Western partners. Its maiden flight was conducted on 19 May 2008 and the plane received its Interstate Aviation Committee certification in January 2011 with European Aviation Safety Agency certification expected in mid-2011. On 21 April 2011, the Superjet 100 performed its first commercial passenger flight, on the Armavia route from Yerevan to Moscow.

About 12 thousand people work at the two departments of the factory. In the first one they make the fuselage, and in the other one they install electronics, engines, etc. 

Actually, I found it rather surprise to see so many ladies working in this factory. Don't get me wrong as I never felt woman should be discriminated from engineering work. My wife is also an Engineer. 

Let's see how they turn a piece of aluminium into a plane.

2011 Carnival Season From Around The World

Carnival Season is a festive season which occurs usually during February. Carnival Season typically involves a public celebration or parade combining some elements of a circus, mask and public street party, as a way to usher out the winter and welcome spring. People often dress up or masquerade during the celebrations, which mark an overturning of daily life.

Across Europe and the Americas, parades and festivals have been taking place for nearly a month, culminating in the largest, most famous party of all: the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The Brazilian Carnival is one of the best-known celebrations today, but many cities and regions worldwide celebrate with large, popular, and days-long events. The Carnival of Rio de Janeiro is the biggest carnival in the world, and the biggest popular party on the planet, according to The Guinness Book of World Records 2010. The Rio de Janeiro Carnaval is also considered the world's most famous.

Gathered below are images from the past several weeks of carnivals around the globe from 2011 season.

Real Life Mario Karts

Nintendo has taught millions of underage kids to drive, thanks to its immensely popular handheld Mario Kart video game. The driving routes are all virtual, thankfully, as they include not only unexpected sheer cliffs, but also driving under the water while evading baddies.

To bring part of Mario's make-believe world to life, Nintendo has partnered with West Coast Customs to create life-size models of Mario's Standard Kart and Luigi's Bumble V Kart. While the characters are forced to enjoy their rides in the hazardous Mushroom Kingdom, we checked them out in the (relative) safety of the Los Angeles Convention Center during today's LA Auto Show. Naturally, the West Coast Customs tie-in means that the karts' construction will be chronicled in an upcoming episode of the shop's reality television show.

The detail on the full-size working models is interesting. Mario's kart appears to be front-wheel drive, with 18-inch wheels on the rear. Noted for its Super Glider option for cliff jumping, the attachment is mounted prominently overhead. Luigi's kart, decked-out with 16-inch wheels and disc brakes, is also front-wheel drive. It is available with a propeller to provide movement under water.

Here's a few snazzy photos.

Miniature Effect Photography

Tilt-shift photography refers to the use of camera movements on small and medium-format cameras, and sometimes specifically refers to the use of tilt for selective focus, often for simulating a miniature scene. Sometimes the term is used when the shallow depth of field is simulated with digital postprocessing; the name may derive from the tilt-shift lens normally required when the effect is produced optically.

Sexiest Men Of The '50s, '60s, '70s

During the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, a new generation of people began to question and challenge the traditionally accepted cultural norms. The relatively conservative ideals that were formed around international war and population growth were beginning to evolve. World just move on from World War 2 and people around the world feel the need to express themselves freely. 

During this time also the foundation for rock and roll music was formed, racial segregation was an issue, and the strict laws around sexual expression were being challenged. For this reason, the people that emerged as sex symbols during this era were extremely influential and important to popular culture.

Below is men sex symbol from that era. People of new generation might find these bunch of people as old folks but back in the days, these guys are considered as god to most of people. If you not believe me, just ask your mom or grandma. The odd is, your mom and grandma surely know 90% of these guys.

Marlon Brando - "He was such a sensitive instrument. I used to play the violin, and I liken Marlon to one of those strings that when you're playing just vibrates." —Eva Marie Saint, remembering Marlon Brando (pictured in A Streetcar Named Desire)

James Dean - "He sure appeals to me. I guess that's because I'm the type that likes to take in stray cats and dogs and he reminds me of that." —an unnamed starlet who dated Dean, talking to LIFE circa 1955

Flying 101 Lesson By Kulula Airlines

Kulula (South Africa's favourite low fare airline), have recently released this fantastic new aircraft livery entitled Flying 101. Kulula are well known for their fun marketing exploits and this one lives up to their high standards. Each part of the aircraft is labelled with humorous captions.

Flying 101 has flown around the world several time thanks to the power of email and internet. This plane was designed in-house by our graphic design team as part of our bigger strategy to demystify air travel and explain some of the unknowns around air travel and flying. Look out for some of the quirky likes like 'The big cheese' pointing to the Captain and 'The black box – that's actually orange'.

I have to say that I really like Fukula Plane livery. Not only it come in super cool bright green colour, it also encourage people to know term aeronautical engineering. Thumbs up!

Most Expensive Pets In The World

We all love our pets, don't we? But some people are ready to pay millions for animals from a million dollar cow to DNA cloned dog. Top ten list of the most expensive pets in the world. Read ahead to find out.

1. Green Monkey – $16,000,000


Green monkey was considered to be the most expensive horse in the world. Its initial price was $16,000,000. The Green Monkey (in the picture) was purchased as a 2-year-old race horse at Calder Race Course by Demi O’Byrne. A descendant of two Kentucky Derby winners, the winner of the auction had high hopes for the young horse, but the Green Monkey flopped never won a race. The Green Monkey was officially retired on February 12, 2008 after failing to break his maiden in his three career starts.

A portion of his ownership was acquired by the same pin-hook sellers, Randy Hartley and Dean De Renzo, who originally acquired and sold him at auction in the 2006 Fasig-Tipton Calder sale. Hartley/De Renzo bought back into the horse and will partner with John Magnier.

2. Missy – $1,200,000


Missy is a three year old black and white Holsten Cow. She currently holds the record for the most expensive cow ever sold in the market. Winning the title for Grand Champion of the 2009 Western Fall National Show and being one of the best show cows in North America made her a target for buyers.

Human Powered Roller Coaster

It is actually an art sculpture. But do look and function more like human roller coaster. I also wonder how you going to walk around the loop?

It has taken eight weeks of intensive assembly work but the newest feature of the German landscape has been unveiled. The city of Duisberg is now home to Crouching Tiger and Turtle, which could easily be described as a roller coaster without a roller coaster.

The Anger Park is a landscape construction at the Heinrich-Hildebrand height in Duisburg - Angerhausen. The 14-hectare green park consists of the former slag heap of Duisburg smelter refurbishment and some adjacent areas, which were sealed and regenerated. It is the continuation of conservation and recreation area Biegerhof -West and, with the green stream , the connection to the Rhine and the lying there Angerort house
