Dream Woman

Is this the perfect woman?

An online beauty retailer claims to have created the world’s most beautiful woman. asked 9,350 shoppers to vote for which parts of female stars they most admired and desired, and then mocked up a profile of what the perfect woman would look like.
After gathering the results, a computer generated image was created of the perfect women.

The perfect woman.

She has Angelina Jolie’s pillow lips, Megan Fox’s perfectly shaped eyebrows and The Duchess of Cambridge’s long glossy hair.

Cheryl Cole’s chocolate brown eyes, along with Kate Beckinsale’s nose, Keira Knightley’s model cheekbones and Kelly Brook’s chest complete her look.

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow, whose chin was voted the best, is the only blonde to feature.
A spokeswoman for the website said: “We had great fun putting together our Ultimate Woman. She is uncannily beautiful and looks a bit like one of the Kardashian sisters or Sandra Bullock, although Angelina’s pout is unmistakable.”

However, we think the resemblance to Kim Kardashian is surprising since none of her features made the list.

The dream woman and Kim Kardashian look similar?

Do you agree with the results? Which celebrity body part would you most want?

 A compilation of beauty features as preferred by the majority. The closest living model is KIM KARDASHIAN. In my opinion, I like her. However, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

Fast = safe?

Time-lapse video: 30-storey hotel built in just 15 days

Chinese company has released a time-lapse video of its construction of a 30-storey mega hotel in just 15 days.

Released by the Asian sustainable building firm Broad Group, the video shows the impressive infrastructure being constructed within a 360-hour time frame in the China’s south central Hunan Province.

Using cutting-edge building technology, which uses six times less cement and is believed to be five times more energy efficient than regular construction material, the 17,000-metre-squared earthquake-proof skyscraper was completed at the end of 2011.

The Ark hotel was built using pre-fabricated modules and uses a diagonal steel bracing.

The remarkable building also boasts a filtration system with air 20 times purer inside than outside and can withstand a 9.0-magnitude earthquake, as tested by the China Academy of Building Research.

In 2010, the same firm built a 16-storey residential block in only five days.

And it’s not just the hotel that was built in the 15 days, but all the furniture has apparently been moved into the building, so it’s ready for guests.

In some cultures, speed is everything. Safety will ONLY be questioned when disaster strikes. I am NOT a qualified Civil Engineer and neither any experience in this field. You be the judge.
