The Floating Palace On River Pichola

As if rising out of legend, Lake Palace dominates the center of Lake Pichola. The palace is one of India's most famous and luxurious hotels. It was built in the middle of the 18th century by prince Maharana Jagat Singh II as a summer palace, where he famously entertained many guests and lovers. The palace was built on a natural rock foundation on the Jag Niwas Island. When the tide is low, the island can be seen. When it is high, the palace seems to be floating on the water.
After 2 centuries of serving as a private resort for the descendants of the prince, a place for them to experience ultimate luxury, the palace was converted into a luxury hotel in the 1960s. Today, guests are invited to enjoy the lavish interior and the royal butler service that are remanants of a long gone era. Even the shuttle service by luxury boat adds to the experience. It has 83 rooms and suites, all renovated with wooden forniture, silk upholsteries and a luxurious design.

Giant Pumpkin Artwork

Small, expertly carved pumpkins can be very impressive, but the folks at the Great Jack O’Lantern Blaze Halloween celebration in New York went in a different direction by making impressively massive pumpkin arrangements. The event features more than 5,000 hand-carved pumpkins on their own or arranged in all kinds of impressive setups, including a massive skeletal triceratops and a terrifying human-spider skeleton hybrid. The epic Halloween celebration lasts for 25 days and features food, live music, art exhibitions and other live events.

According to the event’s organizers, “the tradition of gourd carving dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries in rural Ireland and England. People created jack o’lanterns for the old holidays of Samhain and All Souls’ Night when spirits were thought to be the most active. Grotesque faces carved into the objects were meant to frighten away any ghouls seeking to do harm". The Jack ‘O Lanterns themselves, they say, come from a legend about a man named Jack who, rejected from both heaven and hell, was doomed to wander the earth with a lantern that he carved out of a turnip and lit with a candle.

New Agriculture Technic Vertical Faming

Columbia University’s Dickson Despommier says with his hi-tech solution offering fascinating design possibilities. With such a shortage of land and increased urbanisation, instead of growing crops horizontally, he proposes the Vertical Farm.Time to open your third eye and imagine that for every 10 blocks of your city, one block is a 30-storey glass skyscraper filled with the hues only found in the plant kingdom. The crisp green of lettuce on the first level, the ripe red of tomatoes and strawberries on the next, and the golden brown of wheat on the top, with the crystal blues of water running through the infrastructure. A living rainbow city block that feeds 10 000 people.

The architectural design of the building allows it to capture the sun and wind and convert it into energy, which powers some of the farm. Inside, the farm workers are dressed in laboratory-white spacesuits to protect the plants from germs. The average farm worker now holds a post-graduate chemistry degree, because the techniques to grow plants inside (without soil, sun or rain) were mostly developed by NASA in their preparations for any long-term planetary relocations.

Amaziny Tiny Miniature Crocheted Animals

A family-run crocheting manufacture from Vietnam proves that size doesn’t matter! Their miniature crocheted animals are so small that they fit on a finger tip, and some of them hardly reach 1/4 of an inch. The idea for the business was inspired by the youngest (10-year-old) member of the family, who’s greatly fond of various movie characters and loves animals. Her nickname even ended up being the name of the company. A five-member company uses different crocheting techniques in their work and always goes for nice and bright colors. The miniature animals are so detailed that every member of the tiny penguin family wears a differently colored scarf, the whale actually spits water out of its back and the birds even lay teeny tiny eggs.
