للأسف الشديد قرار منع التدخين داخل مجمع الأفنيوز منذ أن طبق في يناير 2011 لم يعد فّعال كما كان ، وأصبح الناس تراهم وبكثرة يُدخنون مستهترين بالقانون ، والأدهى أنك ترى أمن المجمع لا يقولون شيء للمدخن ، وترى بأبسط مجمع في دبي يُحترم القانون وبشكل صارم ، بل وحتى يُغرم كل من يخالف ، فلماذا إدارة المجمع غضت النظر عن هذا الأمر الهام لصحة رواد المجمع!؟
A farmer caused chaos when he walked his ducks almost 1.5km (1 mile) from his farm to a pond in a quest for food.
The mini migration was timed to avoid rush hour but commuters could not help but get caught up in the parade.
At one point, several scooters were marooned in a sea of brown but the ducks’ feathers remained unruffled – or maybe the riders were just winging it.
Farmer Hong – who was armed with just a (very) long stick and a few assistants – managed to make the journey without losing a single duck en route to the water.
And he boasted that, incredibly, he had not lost a duck in the past six months while making the trip.
He regularly undertakes the perilous journey in the booming coastal city of Taizhou, in China’s Zhejiang province, about 305km (190 miles) south of Shanghai.
Just ponder on that traffic nightmare the next time you find your own feathers being ruffled when you’re stuck in a jam.
To the untrained eye, it could have been the first signal of the end of the world as nuclear war broke out.
But instead of anything sinister, the giant mushroom cloud spotted in the skies over the Chinese capital last week was simply a brilliant showcase of the wonder of nature.
The huge cloud, which appeared on Thursday, gradually took the shape of an explosion from an atomic bomb.
But instead of being a danger to residents or marking imminent Armageddon the phenomenon was thought to be completely harmless.
Thrill seekers with a head for heights were climbing over one and other to be among the first to ride the world’s tallest roller coaster as it was unveiled on Friday.
The latest addition to Adventure Park in Glenwood Springs, Colorado is set on a base elevation of 7,000 feet, making it the highest roller coaster in the world.
Named ‘Cliffhanger’, the ride is literally perched atop an Iron Mountain cliff, overlooking the city and offering glimpses of spectacular scenery.
It starts with a sharp ride up and then a dramatic drop down, with twists and turns throwing evening the most seasoned rider off-balance.
Those brave enough to keep their eyes open witness panoramic views up the Roaring Fork Valley and into the Glenwood Canyon, as their carts roar around the tracks.
