World`s Largest Performing Fountain

DUBAI, UAE: After two months of testing, the Dubai Fountain was publicly turned on last May 7, 2009 by His Highness Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The opening was in conjunction with the official opening of the Dubai Mall which hosts around 1200 retail outlets spread over a total area of 12 million hectare.

The visual experience of the Dubai Fountain is simply outstanding with over 6,600 WET superlights and 25 colour projectors creates a visual spectrum of over 1,000 abstract attractions. Set on the 30-acre Burj Dubai Lake, the fountain oscillates water jets as high as 500 ft (150 metres) equivalent to that of a 50-storey building. The fountain is 900 ft (275 metres) long and has five circles of varying sizes and two central arcs. It`s size is 25% larger than the Bellagio Fountain in Las Vegas and visible from over 20 miles away up or horizontally if you have a clear line of sight. Adding to it`s allure,the fountain will sway to the melody of Sama Dubai, the tribute of Emaar Properties to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai; Dhoom Thana, a super-hit Hindi film song from the Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Om Shanti Om; Baba Yetu, an award-winning song in Swahili; the Arab world’s top-selling dance number Shik Shak Shok; and the signature piece of world-renowned Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli, Con te Partiro . 

The Dubai Fountain is clearly situated as another tourist magnetism for Dubai with a distinction of being one of the world’s largest performing fountains with all controls being executed under-water. But it is not the world’s tallest in terms of single jet fountains, the record belongs to King Fahd’s Fountain in Jeddah at 1,023 ft.The fountain has been designed by California-based WET, the creators of the Fountains of Bellagio in Las Vegas. Mark Fuller, WET’s founder and Chief Excellence Officer said that the Dubai Fountain does not only defy gravity but also utilized the latest technology in lighting, robotics, and our signature water shooters.

Emaar, the developer of the Burj Dubai and the Downtown Burj Dubai area, announced that total development value of the Burj Dubai Lake, the Dubai fountain and its advanced filtrations systems is a whopping AED 800 million (USD 218.50 million). The Dubai Fountain is now performing daily from 6pm to 11pm with 30 minutes interval til 8pm and 20 minutes onwards. The best places for viewing are at the bridge between Souk Al Bahar and theDubai Mall; at several restaurants in Souk Al Bahar; at the Kinokuniya bookshop on the top floor of the Dubai Mall; at Joe’s Cafe on Level 1 of the Dubai Mall; at cafes and restaurants along the Dubai Mall promenade and at the Burj Dubai itself of course, unless you bought a north-facing apartment.

Smallest Man of World

WUHAN, China -- certified medical records at Tong Ji Hospital in Wuhan, eastern China show that Wu Kang officially measures up at just 68cm tall, or just short of 2ft 3ins - setting the new world record for the Smallest Man.

"We knew he was small but we didn't understand just how small until we started to look things up on the Internet," said Mr Kang's dad, Wu Jianxiang. Now the 22-year-old, who could easily be in the wrong for a child, has a big choice to make, because doctors are able to give him a growth hormone.

It means he’d lose the world record title, but would be able to lead a more normal life.Pediatrician Luo Xiaoping said: "Although he is 22 years old, his height is about the same as a nine-month-old, and his bone age is the equal of a one-year-old. It would have been better if he came to see me earlier.

"But it is probable to reverse some of the damage with human growth hormone. He could grow up to 12cm a year.” The previous Guinness world record for the Smallest Man was held by fellow Chinese citizen He Pingping who is 74.61cm tall, more than two inches taller than Kang.

Mr Kang suffers from panhypopituitarism, which decreases the emission hormones normally produced by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain.

Now Kang's family say they're leaving the final decision to him. "It is something only he can choose. Fame is tempting but he would dearly love to be normal for once in his life," said his father.

Most expensive Wedding Cake


DALLAS, TX, USA -- Delicious Cakes , Dallas Gold and Silver Exchange and Quest Drape collaborated to make a 9-tier wedding cake, embellished with silver dust icings and 1,200 carats worth of diamonds, that costs $1.3 million - setting the world record for the Most expensive Wedding Cake.

It was made of foam, but if it were real, no cake from any catering service in Durham could match its attributes: it could weigh about 160 pounds and serve about 320 people, with each slice costing $3,125 per slice.

"We wanted to do something different this year," said Butch Stivers, owner of Delicious Cakes. "With the wealth being bad -- and we do the Dallas Bridal Show so many years -- we wanted to do amazing that the new brides-to-be could see and dream about and get their minds off everything else that's going on."

Although Stivers admitted that this is not the first time that he had ornamented a cake with diamonds, he said that this is the first cake which he has spent $1.3 million worth of Jewelry.

Due to the high price of the Most expensive Wedding Cake, it had to be transported in an armored vehicle to the Market Hall with armed guards surrounding the perimeter.  

Most Expensive Bride

USA -- Deven Trabosh, 42, a single mother of two girls has been divorced for eight years and decided to combine the search for a husband and the sale of her house into one; she listed her home (at $340,000) and her love ($500,000) for sale on Craigslist and eBay -setting the world record for the Most Expensive Bride.

“I figured let’s combine the ad because I’m looking for love and I’m looking to sell the house,” said Trabosh, a single mom who looks like Barbie and teeters around in a miniskirt and high heels.

The 42-year-old single mother tried dating sites, bars but none of that worked. Her home is listed at $340,000 on Craigslist and eBay, if you want to add her to the deal, it will cost $500,000. "Marry a Princess Lost in America," Trabosh wrote in the ads she posted on eBay and Craigslist. She describes a life of romance and travel and a home ornamented with arched ceilings, upgraded tile and a drenched tub in a gated society with a pool and tennis courts.

The Most Expensive Bride also tried eBay but the company removed the listing because they say they don't let people sell themselves on the website. She listed the home for $340,000 on a sell-it-yourself Web site, but upped the price, adding a $500,000 shipping fee to include her companionship on eBay.

She whips out her laptop to show off a picture of Claudio, a handsome Italian wine and cheese taster, who she's been corresponding with since he responded to the ad. Seated on a white leather love seat in her living room, she giggles almost girlishly about him. Trabosh, a approved real estate agent who hasn't practiced in years, knew she would resist to sell the home in the bothered real estate market, but insists her fairytale ad isn't just a sales gimmick.

“I’m not selling myself. I’m selling love…to meet that true love,” Deven told reporters. “Of course, it’s gonna take more chemistry and association. It’s not going to be immediate that I’m just going to be repeatedly for sale…it’s a enclose deal for true love.”

“I’m stressed…I don’t want to lose my house and I want to find somebody,” said Deven Trabosh, who changed her name in the ad to Dee Traboscia to keep people from finding her in the phone book. “So I came up with this dream plan because I’ve always dreamt about being a fairytale princess.”

Her 21-year-old daughter Haley says she just wants her mom to find love, but her 14-year-old daughter says her mother is embarrassing her. Her Internet ads, meanwhile, have led to hundreds of e-mails from as far as Russia, Trabosh said. One read: “Forget the house, let me see pictures of the woman.” Another: “You’re so beautiful, I can’t believe you’re not taken.”

“I may not be perfect,” Trabosh said, “but I’ve got my stuff together.”     

Ideally, the Most Expensive Bride hopes a European man will close the deal and says she's willing to move overseas. "I know I'm putting myself out there. I'm sincere. I believe in true love," she says. "I want to get married again."

Highest Skydive Landing - World Record Set By Jai Kishan, Wendy Smith and Tom Noonan


KalaPather Plateu, KATHMANDU, Nepal -- Wing Commander Jai Kishan, a 37-year-old parachute jump instructor from the Indian Air Force, along with Wendy Smith (New Zealand) and Tom Noonan (USA), jumped from an altitude of 21,000 feet and landed at Kalapather Plateu at 17192 feet (5242 metrer) above sea level right beside Mt. Qomolangma (also known as Mt. Everest)- setting the new world record for the Highest Skydive Landing.

"It was the fulfillment of a long dream," said Kishan, who dived with the photographs of his dead parents in his pocket in commemoration of their constant encouragement. After exit from the helicopter, Jai had a free fall of 8 seconds and after successfully deploying his parachute he displayed the Indian tri color in the air for around 4 minutes.

“I was flying my canopy with the Indian flag just beside the Everest and I could see the whole view the climbing route of Everest. It is a view I will always remember ”, Jai added. The IAF officer took loans and pledged his provident fund to raise money for the adventure, which cost between 10,000-15,000 pounds. His partners in the stunt were New Zealander Wendy Smith, the world skydiving champion with over 18,000 dives under her belt, and American Tom Noonan, a freelance skydiving instructor.    

It was a personal quest and Kishan said he was indebted to his officers from the IAF for granting him leave. The Parachute Federation of India gave him his parachute and the Aeroclub of India the altimeter used by skydivers to calculate when they should end their freefall and open the parachute.

It took him a month's preparation and planning for three years to achieve the deed. The three divers had planned to choose a higher altitude but settled for 21,000 ft due to inclement weather.

The dive was fraught with dangers since the divers fell through sharp peaks where strong gusts of wind could dash them to death. They had to also fly over open crevasses and a fall into them also meant death. "I can't say I was not scared," Kishan said. "People who say they are not, are lying."The IAF officer advised another successful diver from Nepal, Ganesh Pandey, not to think of anything when he jumped off the aircraft. "Just say Jai Pashupatinath and jump," he advised.

This new world record for the Highest Skydive Landing eclipses the world record set last month by three daredevils - Britons Leo Dickinson and Ralph Mitchell and Wing Commander Tripathi, who jumped from 20,000 ft to land at the same altitude. Kishan said: "Indians have the enthusiasm for sports and the courage to push themselves beyond their limits," he told IANS.    "In the past, we lacked exposure but now, we have responsiveness as well. I saw lots of Indians at the Everest base camp."

The adventure seekers Wendy Smith of New Zealand, tandem master Tom Noonan of the United States and Jai Kishan of India were members of the Everest Skydive 2009, an event organised by Explore Himalaya Travel & Adventure.

As a continuation of the Everest Skydive 2008, the Everest Skydive 2009 was organised to promote Nepal Tourism Year 2011.

World's largest Plasma HD LCD- 152-inch full HD 3D from Panasonic


 
LAS VEGAS, NV (January 6, 2010) – Panasonic Corporation, a world leader in the HDTV technology, has developed the world's largest 152-inch 4Kx2K definition Full HD 3D plasma display. The display features a revolutionary new plasma display panel (PDP) Panasonic developed with its new super-efficient quadruple luminous efficiency technology. The technology enhances PDP's unique advantages as self-illuminating device, contributing to delivering an overwhelming immersive experience to viewers. The Panasonic 152-inch Full HD 3D PDP creates a true Full HD 3D world by faithfully reproducing 3D content such as Hollywood 3D movie titles.

Self-illuminating plasma panels offer excellent response to moving images with full motion picture resolution, making them suitable for rapid 3D image display. By employing the newly-developed ultra high-speed 3D drive technology, which adopts the super-efficient quadruple luminous efficiency technology, the new panel achieves a higher illuminating speed, about one fourth the speed of conventional Full HD panels. This technology enables high-quality Full HD 3D display on the ultra large 152-inch 4Kx2K (4,096x2,160 pixels) panel.

The panel also incorporates a crosstalk reduction technology, essential for producing clear 3D images. Compared to other display technologies that use line-at-a-time driving method, PDPs use frame-at-a-time driving method that gives PDP TVs an advantage in crosstalk reduction in principle. Panasonic has successfully developed a unique technology to minimize double-image that occurs when left- and right-eye images are switched alternately. The development has resulted in the 3D compatible plasma display that can render clear and smooth high-quality pictures by accurately reproducing video sources.

The ultra-large 152-inch Full HD 3D PDP, which delivers true 3D movie-theater experience, follows the development of the industry's first 103-inch class size Full HD 3D PDP Panasonic introduced in 2008 and the home theater size 50-inch class Full HD 3D PDP in 2009.

This year, which is really the first year of 3D TV, 3D TVs are expected to accelerate the growth of the flat-panel television market by providing new values to customers.

TV has evolved over the years through technological innovations. It started as a device to produce images to be simply watched and then it became a tool when connectivity with other AV devices is added. Now, with the 3D technology, it has developed into a device that delivers an immersive viewing experience, moving into literally an era of "next dimension."

Panasonic launches its first Full HD 3D TVs in 2010 with PDP technology, which is highly suitable for 3D TVs, to offer the utmost picture quality. Panasonic's new 3D TVs will deliver a true full HD 3D quality to create new and exciting television experiences.

Because 3D plasma displays can reproduce highly realistic images, they are considered ideal not only for home theater use but also for a wide variety of uses such as business, medical, education and commercial applications.

Panasonic will make the first year of 3D TV as a springboard to boost its popularity, capitalizing on the company's ability to offer complete end-to-end solutions from professional 3D camcorders and Blu-ray disc authoring service to consumer use 3D TVs and displays and 3D-enabled Blu-ray disc players.

Furthermore, Panasonic strives to accelerate the spread of 3D products and drive growth in the the flat-panel television market, focusing on the development of a 3D infrastructure including 3D content through increased cooperation with Hollywood studios and broadcasters. The company hopes to contribute to the enhancement of 3D related business and the development of a new industry, which may be called 3D economic system that can be brought about through interactions among the related businesses.

Newly developed ultra high-speed 3D drive technology enables 3D display on ultra-large (152-inch), super high resolution (4Kx2K) panels

Using the super-efficient quadruple luminous efficiency technology, Panasonic developed 3D ultra high-speed drive technology. Compared to the conventional full HD panels, the technology allows the new panel to achieve the same brilliance at about one-fourth speed. The new 152-inch panel also uses a new technology that enables even and stable discharge. Thanks to this discharge technology, the new panel can provide full HD images for left and right eyes formed with twice the volume of information as regular full HD images across the vast expanse of the screen equivalent to nine 50-inch panels with super high resolution (4,096x2,160) - four times the full HD (1,920x1,080) specification - while maintaining the brightness.

The new advanced PDP delivers high-quality 3D images, with virtually infinite 5,000,000:19 contrast ratio, accurate color reproduction and subtle gradation tones, on the ultra-large screen. With characters in the screen approach the viewers in life size, the new panel creates an overwhelmingly immersive experience.

Cross-talk reduction enables clear, high-definition 3D images

Because displaying 3D images involves alternate displays of left- and right-eye images, reducing the overlap (cross-talk) between these images is essential for high-quality 3D images. Unlike 3D LCD panels that use line by line scanning method, PDPs use frame-sequential method that displays images frame by frame very quickly, giving PDPs a tremendous advantage in crosstalk reduction. Incorporating newly-developed phosphors with short luminescence decay time - one third the time of conventional phosphors - as well as illumination control technology, the cross-talk reduction technology has succeeded in minimizing double images.

Enhancing the video reproduction capability of PDP, which has full moving picture resolution, the technology enables crisp and clear, high-quality 3D images by faithfully reproducing video sources.

Full HD x 2 frame sequential method

To reproduce 3D images, the new PDP uses the full HD x 2 frame sequential method that displays time sequential images, alternately reproducing discrete full HD (1,920x1,080 pixels) images for the left and right eyes on the display frame by frame. By adopting the method which is used in showing Hollywood 3D films in theaters, the new panel accurately reproduces high-quality 3D images in the living room.

Youngest President of the United States

Theodore Roosevelt was born in October 27, 1858 and died in January 6, 1919; pronounced was the 26th President of the United States. He is well remembered for his energetic persona, his range of interests and achievements, and his leadership of the Progressive Movement, his model of masculinity, and his "cowboy" image. He was a leader of the Republican Party and founder of the short-lived Progressive ("Bull Moose") Party of 1912.

Born to a wealthy family, Roosevelt was an unhealthy child suffering from asthma who stayed at home studying natural history. In response to his physical weakness, he embraced a strenuous life. He attended Harvard, where he boxed and developed an interest in naval affairs. A year out of Harvard, in 1881 he ran for a seat in the state legislature. His first historical book, The Naval War of 1812, published in 1882, established his reputation as a serious historian. After a few years of living in the Badlands, Roosevelt returned to New York City, where he gained fame for fighting police corruption. He was effectively running the US Department of the Navy when the Spanish American War broke out; he resigned and led a small regiment in Cuba known as the Rough Riders, earning himself a nomination for the Medal of Honor. After the war, he returned to New York and was elected Governor; two years later he was nominated for and elected Vice President of the United States.

In 1901, President William McKinley was assassinated, and Roosevelt became president at the age of 42, taking office at the youngest age of any U.S. President in history. Roosevelt attempted to move the Republican Party in the direction of Progressivism, including trust busting and increased regulation of businesses. Roosevelt coined the phrase "Square Deal" to describe his domestic agenda, emphasizing that the average citizen would get a fair shake under his policies. As an outdoorsman and naturalist, he promoted the conservation movement. On the world stage, Roosevelt's policies were characterized by his slogan, "Speak softly and carry a big stick". Roosevelt was the force behind the completion of the Panama Canal; he sent out the Great White Fleet to display American power, and he negotiated an end to the Russo-Japanese War, for which he won the Nobel Peace Prize.

World Longest Snakes and Longest Reptile

Python reticulatus, also known as the Asiatic reticulated python or regal python, is a species of python found in Southeast Asia. Its length is 28 feet (8.7 m) are the world's longest snakes and longest reptile, but are not the most heavily built. Like all pythons, they are non-venomous constrictors and normally not considered dangerous to humans, even though large specimens are powerful enough to kill an adult and attacks are occasionally reported.

A brilliant swimmer, it has even been reported far out at sea and has consequently colonized many small islands within its range. The specific name is Latin meaning net-like, or reticulated, and is a reference to the complex color pattern.

Adults can grow to a length of more than 28.5 feet (8.7 m) and are the world's longest snakes. However, they are relatively slim for their length and are certainly not the most heavily built. The species Eunectes murinus, the green anaconda, may be larger. The largest individual ever accurately measured was Colossus, kept at the Pittsburgh Zoo during the 1950s, with a peak length of 28.5 feet. Numerous reports have been made of larger snakes, but since none of these have been measured by a scientist nor have the specimens been deposited at a museum, they must be regarded as unproven and probably erroneous. In spite of a standing offer of $50,000 for a live, healthy snake over 30 feet long by the New York Zoological Society, no attempt to claim this reward has ever been made.

Found in Southeast Asia from the Nicobar Islands, Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Singapore, east through Indonesia and the Indo-Australian Archipelago and the Philippines.

Burj Khalifa ,formerly known as Burj Dubai

Burj Khalifa (Arabic: برج خليفة‎ "Khalifa Tower"),formerly known as Burj Dubai, is a skyscraper in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and the tallest man-made structure ever built, at 828 m (2,717 ft). Construction began on 21 September 2004, with the exterior of the structure completed on 1 October 2009. The building officially opened on 4 January 2010.The building is part of the 2 km2 (490-acre) flagship development called Downtown Burj Khalifa at the "First Interchange" along Sheikh Zayed Road, near Dubai's main business district.

The tower's architecture and engineering was performed by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill of Chicago. Adrian Smith, who worked with Skidmore, Owings and Merrill until 2006, was the chief architect and Bill Baker was the chief structural engineer for the project. The primary contractor was Samsung C&T of South Korea, who also built the Taipei 101 and Petronas Twin Towers. Major subcontractors included Belgian group Besix and Arabtec from the UAE. Turner Construction Company was chosen as the construction project manager. Under UAE law, the Contractor and the Engineer of Record are jointly and severally liable for the performance of Burj Khalifa. Therefore, by adoption of SOM's design and by being appointed as Architect and Engineer of Record, Hyder Consulting was legally the Design Consultant for the tower.

The total cost for the Burj Khalifa project was about US$1.5 billion; and for the entire new "Downtown Dubai", US$20 billion. Mohamed Ali Alabbar, the Chairman of Emaar Properties, speaking at the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat 8th World Congress, said in March 2009 that the price of office space at Burj Khalifa had reached US$4,000 per sq ft (over US$43,000 per m2) and that the Armani Residences, also in Burj Khalifa, were selling for US$3,500 per sq ft (over US$37,500 per m2). The completion of the tower coincided with a worldwide economic slump and overbuilding, causing it to be described as "the latest ... in [a] string of monuments to architectural vacancy."

History of height increases
Burj Khalifa compared to some other well-known tall structures
A visual comparison of Burj Khalifa's (far right) height with that of surrounding buildings at dusk There are unconfirmed reports of several planned height increases since its inception. Originally proposed as a virtual clone of the 560 m (1,837 ft) Grollo Tower proposal for Melbourne, Australia's Docklands waterfront development, the tower was redesigned with an original design by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) discussed below. Marshall Strabala, an SOM architect who worked on the project until 2006, late 2008 said that Burj Khalifa was designed to be 808 m (2,650 ft) tall.

The design architect, Adrian Smith, felt that the uppermost section of the building did not culminate elegantly with the rest of the structure, so he sought and received approval to increase it to the current height.[citation needed] It has been explicitly stated that this change did not include any added floors, which is fitting with Smith's attempts to make the crown more slender.

Delay 
Emaar Properties announced on 9 June 2008 that construction of Burj Khalifa was delayed by upgraded finishes and would be completed only in September 2009. An Emaar spokesperson said "The luxury finishes that were decided on in 2004, when the tower was initially conceptualized, is now being replaced by upgraded finishes. The design of the apartments has also been enhanced to make them more aesthetically attractive and functionally superior." A revised completion date of 2 December 2009 was then announced.

However, Burj Khalifa was opened on 4 January 2010.

Architecture and design
The tower is designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, which also designed the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower) in Chicago, Illinois and 1 World Trade Center in New York City, among numerous other famous high-rises. The building resembles the bundled tube form of the Willis Tower, but is not a tube structure. Its design is reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright's vision for The Illinois, a mile-high skyscraper designed for Chicago. According to Marshall Strabala, an SOM architect who worked on the building's design team, Burj Khalifa was designed based on the 73-floor Tower Palace Three, an all-residential building in Seoul, South Korea. In its early planning, Burj Khalifa was intended to be entirely residential.Subsequent to the original design by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill, Emaar Properties chose Hyder Consulting to be the supervising engineer. Hyder was selected for its expertise in structural and MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing) engineering. Hyder Consulting's role was to supervise construction, certify SOM's design, and be the engineer and architect of record to the UAE authorities. Emaar Properties also engaged

GHD, an international multidisciplinary consulting firm, act as an independent verification and testing authority for concrete and steelwork.The design of Burj Khalifa is derived from patterning systems[clarification needed] embodied in Islamic architecture. The design architect Adrian Smith has said the triple-lobed footprint of the building was inspired by the flower Hymenocallis. The tower is composed of three elements arranged around a central core. As the tower rises from the flat desert base, setbacks occur at each element in an upward spiralling pattern, decreasing the cross section of the tower as it reaches toward the sky. There are 27 terraces in Burj Khalifa.

At the top, the central core emerges and is sculpted to form a finishing spire. A Y-shaped floor plan maximizes views of the Persian Gulf. Viewed from above or from the base, the form also evokes the onion domes of Islamic architecture. During the design process, engineers rotated the building 120 degrees from its original layout to reduce stress from prevailing winds. At its tallest point, the tower sways a total of 1.5 m (4.9 ft).

The spire of Burj Khalifa is composed of more than 4,000 tonnes (4,400 ST; 3,900 LT) of structural steel. The central pinnacle pipe weighing 350 tonnes (390 ST; 340 LT) was constructed from inside the building and jacked to its full height of over 200 m (660 ft) using a strand jack system. The spire also houses communications equipment.

More than 1,000 pieces of art will adorn the interiors of Burj Khalifa, while the residential lobby of Burj Khalifa will have the artwork of 196 bronze and brass alloy cymbals representing the 196 countries of the world. The visitors in this lobby will be able to hear a distinct timbre as the cymbals, plated with 18-carat gold, are struck by dripping water, intended to mimic the sound of water falling on leaves.The exterior cladding of Burj Khalifa consists of 142,000 m2 (1,528,000 sq ft) of reflective glazing, and aluminium and textured stainless steel spandrel panels with vertical tubular fins. The cladding system is designed to withstand Dubai's extreme summer temperatures. Additionally, the exterior temperature at the top of the building is thought to be 6°C (11°F) cooler than at its base. Over 26,000 glass panels were used in the exterior cladding of Burj Khalifa. Over 300 cladding specialists from China were brought in for the cladding work on the tower.

The hotel interior will be decorated by Giorgio Armani. An Armani Hotel, the first of four by Armani, will occupy 15 of the lower 39 floors. The hotel will be opened on 18 March 2010. whereas the Corporate Suites and offices, will be opened from March onwards. The Sky Lobbies on 43 and 76 floors will house swimming pools.  
 
Floors through to 108 will have 900 private residential apartments (which, according to the developer, sold out within eight hours of being on the market). An outdoor zero-entry swimming pool will be located on the 76th floor of the tower. Corporate offices and suites fill most of the remaining floors, except for a 122nd, 123rd and 124th floor where the At.mosphere restaurant, sky lobby and an indoor and outdoor observation deck is located respectively. Burj Khalifa will recieves its first residents from, February 2010,they will be among the first of 25,000 people who will live there. The outdoor observation deck, opened on 5 January 2010, is the highest in the world, at 442 m (1,450 ft). Tickets are time stamped at 30-minute intervals, on specific days, in order to carefully manage the daily rush of sightseers. Introductory ticket price is AED 100 for adults and AED 75 for children up to 12 years.

Burj Khalifa is expected to hold up to 25,000 people at any one time. A total of 57 elevators and 8 escalators are installed, the fastest rising and descending at up to 10 m/s (33 ft/s). Engineers had considered installing the world's first triple-deck elevators, but the final design calls for double-deck elevators. The building has 2,909 stairs from the ground floor to the 160th floor.

The graphic design identity work for Burj Khalifa is the responsibility of Brash Brands, who are based in Dubai. Design of the global launch events, communications, and visitors centers for Burj Khalifa have also been created by Brash Brands as well as the roadshow exhibition for the Armani Residences, which are part of the Armani Hotel within Burj Khalifa, which toured Milan, London, Jeddah, Moscow and Delhi.

Maintenance 
To wash the 24,348 windows, a horizontal track has been installed on the exterior of Burj Khalifa at levels 40, 73 and 109. Each track holds a 1,500 kg (3,300 lb) bucket machine which moves horizontally and then vertically using heavy cables. Above level 109, up to tier 27 traditional cradles from davits are used. The top of the spire, however, is reserved for specialist window cleaners, who brave the heights and high winds dangling by ropes to clean and inspect the top of the pinnacle. Under normal conditions, when all building maintenance units will be operational, it will take 36 workers three to four months to clean the entire exterior facade.

Unmanned machines will clean the top 27 additional tiers and the glass spire. The cleaning system was developed in Australia at a cost of A$8 million.

Dubai Fountain
Outside, and at a cost of Dh 800 million (US$217 million), a record-setting fountain system was designed by WET Design, the California-based company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio Hotel Lake in Las Vegas. Illuminated by 6,600 lights and 50 coloured projectors, it is 275 m (900 ft) long and shoots water 150 m (490 ft) into the air, accompanied by a range of classical to contemporary Arabic and world music. On 26 October 2008 Emaar announced that based on results of a naming contest the fountain would be called the Dubai Fountain.

Burj Khalifa park
 
Burj Khalifa is surrounded by an 11 ha (1,200,000 sq ft) park. The design of the park is also inspired by the core design concepts of Burj Khalifa which is based on the symmetries of the desert flower, Hymenocallis. The park has six water features, gardens, palm lined walkways, and flowering trees. At the centre of the park and the base of Burj Khalifa is the water room, which is a series of pools and water jet fountains. In addition the railing, benches and signs incorporate images of Burj Khalifa and the Hymenocallis flower.

The plants and the shrubbery will be watered by the buildings's condensation collection system,that uses water from the cooling system. The system will provide 15,000,000 imp gal (68,000,000 L) annually. WET designers, who also developed the Dubai Fountain, developed the park's six water features.

Construction

The tower was constructed by a South Korean company, Samsung Engineering & Construction, which also did work on the Petronas Twin Towers and Taipei 101. Samsung Engineering & Construction is building the tower in a joint venture with Besix from Belgium and Arabtec from UAE. Turner is the Project Manager on the main construction contract.

The primary structural system of Burj Khalifa is reinforced concrete. Over 45,000 m3 (58,900 cu yd) of concrete, weighing more than 110,000 tonnes (120,000 ST; 110,000 LT) were used to construct the concrete and steel foundation, which features 192 piles, with each pile is 1.5 metre diameter x 43 metre long buried more than 50 m (164 ft) deep. Burj Khalifa's construction used 330,000 m3 (431,600 cu yd) of concrete and 55,000 tonnes of steel rebar, and construction took 22 million man-hours. A high density, low permeability concrete was used in the foundations of Burj Khalifa. A cathodic protection system under the mat is used to minimize any detrimental effects from corrosive chemicals in local ground water.

The previous record for pumping concrete on any project was set during the extension of the Riva del Garda Hydroelectric Power Plant in Italy in 1994, when concrete was pumped to a height of 532 m (1,745 ft). Burj Khalifa exceeded this height on 19 August 2007, and as of May 2008 concrete was pumped to a delivery height of 606 m (1,988 ft), the 156th floor. The remaining structure above is built of lighter steel.

Burj Khalifa is highly compartmentalised. Pressurized, air-conditioned refuge floors are located approximately every 35 floors where people can shelter on their long walk down to safety in case of an emergency or fire.Special mixes of concrete are made to withstand the extreme pressures of the massive building weight; as is typical with reinforced concrete construction, each batch of concrete used was tested to ensure it could withstand certain pressures.

The consistency of the concrete used in the project was essential. It was difficult to create a concrete that could withstand both the thousands of tonnes bearing down on it and Persian Gulf temperatures that can reach 50 °C (122 °F). To combat this problem, the concrete was not poured during the day. Instead, during the summer months ice was added to the mixture and it was poured at night when the air is cooler and the

humidity is higher. A cooler concrete mixture cures evenly throughout and is therefore less likely to set too quickly and crack. Any significant cracks could have put the entire project in jeopardy.

The unique design and engineering challenges of building Burj Khalifa have been featured in a number of television documentaries, including the Big, Bigger, Biggest series on the National Geographic and Five channels, and the Mega Builders series on the Discovery Channel.

Labour controversy
Burj Khalifa was built primarily by workers from South Asia. Press reports indicated in 2006 that skilled carpenters at the site earned UK£4.34 a day, and labourers earned UK£2.84. According to a BBC investigation and a Human Rights Watch report, the workers were housed in abysmal conditions, their pay was often withheld, their passports were confiscated by their employers, and they were working in hazardous conditions that resulted in an apparently high number of deaths and injuries on site.

On 21 March 2006, about 2,500 workers, who were upset over buses that were delayed for the end of their shifts, protested, damaging cars, offices, computers, and construction equipment. A Dubai Interior Ministry official said the rioters caused almost UK£500,000 in damage. Most of the workers involved in the riot returned the following day but refused to work.

On 17 June 2008, there were 7,500 skilled workers employed in the construction of Burj Khalifa.

Opening ceremony
The opening ceremony of Burj Khalifa was held on 4 January 2010. The ceremony featured a display of 10,000 fireworks, light beams projected on and around the tower, and further sound, light and water effects. Using the 868 powerful stroboscope lights that are integrated into the facade and spire of the tower, different lighting sequences were choreographed, together with more than 50 different combinations of the other effects.

The event began with a short film which depicted the story of Dubai and the evolution of Burj Khalifa. The displays of sound, light, water and fireworks followed. The portion of the show consisting of the various pyrotechnic, lighting, water and sound effects was divided into three. The first part was primarily a light and sound show, which took as its theme the link between desert flowers and the new tower, and was co-ordinated with the Dubai Fountain and pyrotechnics. The second portion, called 'Heart Beat', represented the construction of the tower in a dynamic light show with the help of 300 projectors which generated a shadow-like image of the tower. In the third act, sky tracers and space cannons enveloped the tower in a halo of white light, which expanded as the lighting rig on the spire activated.

The ceremony was relayed live on a giant screen on Burj Park Island, as well as several television screens placed across the Downtown Burj Khalifa development. Hundreds of media outlets from around the world reported live from the scene. In addition to the media presence, 6,000 guests were expected.

Purpose
Burj Khalifa has been designed to be the centrepiece of a large-scale, mixed-use development that will include 30,000 homes, nine hotels such as The Address Downtown Burj Khalifa, 3 hectares (7.4 acres) of parkland, at least 19 residential towers, the Dubai Mall, and the 12-hectare (30-acre) man-made Burj Khalifa Lake.

The building has returned the location of Earth's tallest free-standing structure to the Middle East — where the Great Pyramid of Giza claimed this achievement for almost four millennia before being surpassed in 1311 by Lincoln Cathedral in England.

The decision to build Burj Khalifa is reportedly based on the government's decision to diversify from an oil-based economy to one that is service- and tourism-oriented. According to officials, it is necessary for projects like Burj Khalifa to be built in the city to garner more international recognition, and hence investment. "He (Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum) wanted to put Dubai on the map with something really sensational," said Jacqui Josephson, a tourism and VIP delegations executive at Nakheel Properties.

BASE jumping
The building has been used by several experienced BASE jumpers for both authorized and unauthorized BASE

jumping:
    * In May 2008, Hervé Le Gallou and an unnamed British man, dressed as engineers, illegally infiltrated Burj Khalifa (around 650 m at the time), and jumped off a balcony situated a couple of floors below the 160th floor.
    * On 8th January 2010, with permission of the authorities, Nasr Al Niyadi and Omar Al Hegelan, from the Emirates Aviation Society, broke the world record for the highest BASE jump from a building after they leapt from a crane suspended platform attached to the 160th floor at 672 m (2,200 ft). The two men descended the vertical drop at a speed of up to 220 km/h (140 mph), with enough time to open their parachutes 10 seconds into the 90 second jump.
