I'm on a boat! ...in the sky.
Singapore, opened a new wonder of the world. "Sky Park" Marina Bay Sands this past summer, and is located on the 200-meter height on the three skyscrapers, as if on three pillars. Here is the most expensive in the world of casinos, bars, restaurants, the largest outdoor swimming pool, 150 meters long and even the Museum of Modern Art.

The free satirical U.S. newspaper The Onion hit Toronto newsstands today, bringing along its wry humour and spin on current events. Partnering with The A.V Club Toronto, the weekly paper will have 50,000 copies at 600 locations across the city.
This is the first time The Onion is publishing outside the United States, and Steve Hannah, president and CEO of Onion, Inc., calls it the ideal fit. “It’s an obvious choice,” said Hannah in a telephone interview. “Toronto is a cosmopolitan, sophisticated, hip, cool town. It’s a music town. The film festival, we’ve been covering it for years.”
No you’ll have something cool to read while you’re riding our underfunded public transit system all over town.

The NIKE MAG is no longer the “greatest shoe never made.” The mythical shoe that originally captured the imagination of audiences in Back to the Future II is being released – and they’re here to help create a future without Parkinson’s disease.
1500 pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG will be auctioned on eBay with all net proceeds going directly to The Michael J. Fox Foundation. Each day for the duration of the ten-day auction, one hundred and fifty pairs of the 2011 NIKE MAG shoes will be made available via eBay’s Fashion Vault. The auction started September 8, 8:30PM PST, and will end September 18. Thanks to a previous 50 million dollar match given to the Michael J. Fox Foundation, all donations will be matched, effectively doubling the contributions from the auction.
The original NIKE MAG was worn by the Back to the Future character Marty McFly, played by Michael J. Fox, in the year 2015. It came alive, lit up and formed to Marty’s foot. The 2011 NIKE MAG shoe was designed to be a precise replica of the original from Back to the Future II. The aesthetic is an exact match, down to the contours of the upper, the glowing LED panel and the electroluminescent NIKE in the strap. The 2011 NIKE MAG illuminates with the pinch of the “ear” of the high top, glowing for five hours per charge.
The 2011 NIKE MAG - It’s About Time.
Four soundsystems. Four styles. One champion. You decide.
An extension of the Academy’s very own Culture Clash series in a city with one of the largest West Indian populations outside the Caribbean. Legendary crews playing on massive soundsystems face off in the city’s first ever cross-genre soundclash, hosted by Toronto’s own Kardinal Offishall. The crews battling for the crowd’s favour at Echo Beach are Afrika Bambaataa’s Zulu Nation, Mad Decent, LuckyMe and Toronto All Stars: Boi-1da, Lissa Monet, & Starting From Scratch. This will be the highlight for the critically acclaimed Manifesto Festival Of Community and Culture taking place in Toronto over a seven-day period.
