The world most expensive Christmas tree

The luxury Emirates Palace hotel in Abu Dhabi displays a tree decorated with $11 million of jewellery. IS THERE ANY END TO THE MADNESS OF THESE PEOPLE ???

Abu Dhabi Yacht Show 25 au 27 fevrier 2010 2010 Abu Dhabi Yacht Show
Abu Dhabi, 15 December, 2009. The 2nd edition of the Abu Dhabi Yacht Show (ADYS), the Middle Easts only annual exhibition devoted to the superyacht and megayacht sectors, is to be staged at the spectacular Yas Marina, which was the glittering backdrop to this years inaugural Formula 1™Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
With only several months remaining until the second Abu Dhabi Yacht Show, news that this elite event will move to the magnificent Yas Marina, on Yas Island, will allow us to showcase the truly world-class leisure marine infrastructure now being developed throughout our emirate. Yas Island is an apt host for the show as it will eventually house multiple marinas, said His Excellency Sheikh Sultan Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, Chairman, Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority (ADTA), headline sponsor of Abu Dhabi Yacht Show and Chairman of ADNEC.
The move to Yas Marina, which has deep berthing facilities and significant available berthing slots, was prompted by a need for a vastly expanded dockside venue that can accommodate a bigger edition of the ADYS.
Luxury yacht owners who came to watch the F1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix recently can attest to the world-class berthing facilities of Yas Marina; and we expect first-time exhibitors and guests to be similarly impressed. Ideally suited to accommodate super and mega yachts, Yas Marina likewise boasts striking aesthetics, first rate support services and a luxurious cosmopolitan vibe surrounding the bigger Yas Island
development of which the marina is a strategic part, said Franck Dailles, IYG Group Director.
Dailles has confirmed that the new venue is more than adequately equipped to cope with the increased number of exhibitors and yacht entries the 2010 show, which will run from February 25-27, has attracted.
In addition, having considerably enhanced the shows programme, we believe Yas Marinas first-class amenities and facilities will create an inspirational atmosphere to promote meetings, negotiations and overall interaction between exhibition guests, exhibitors, visitors and potential buyers.
Held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Bin Al Nayhan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, ADYS is expected to further cement Abu Dhabis burgeoning reputation as a world-class yachting destination.
Many around the world are now familiar with Yas Marina from the breathtaking television shots and stills photography which circulated globally during the highly successful inaugural Formula 1™ Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
The images of fabulous yachts, from which owners, charterers and their guests enjoyed the race action, left lasting, and emphatic impressions and did much to assist the emirates SuperYacht hub aspirations. The fleet of the worlds best SuperYachts expected to attend the yacht show will no doubt realise an equally inspiring vista and again provide a visual image of an international maritime destination in the making, Al Nahyan said.
Yas Island is one of the most highly-prized projects within the portfolio of Aldar Properties, one of Abu Dhabis leading developers. Located strategically off the city of Abu Dhabi, Yas Island is within driving distance of the capital and nearby Dubai, and will feature numerous leisure and recreation attractions, such as a racing circuit, signature hotels, theme parks, marinas, and a golf course, among other world-class facilities.
Covering 115,000 square metres, Yas Marina has 143 berths and can house vessels from 15 metres to 75 metres. Even larger boats those upwards of 130metres can be berthed in facilities alongside Yas Yacht Club, outside the Marina.
Yas Marina welcomed its first vessel the Royal Yacht, MY Rabdan in October, which dropped anchor a few weeks prior to the first Formula 1TM Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. The marina hosted an impressive flotilla of superyachts at the start of November during the motor racing extravaganza and received an exceptionally positive response to its outstanding facilities.
This year, we have also revised the shows layout to ensure all exhibitors have a waterfront presence, a format that will put the spotlight even more on the true stars of the show the stunning super and megayachts that will be anchored at Yas Marina exclusively for the event, added Dailles.

Security in the Gulf

The Manama talks are taking place in Bahrain to discuss security in the Gulf with one of the big issues being the involvement of foreign powers, particularly when it comes to Iran. Can those powers help establish security, or should Gulf countries work it out on their own - remembering the mistrust that has been revealed by WikiLeaks?

Burj Al Arab 7 Star Hotel - OFFICIAL DVD

The Burj Al Arab is the tallest hotel in the world at over 1,000 feet. Every room is 2 stories high and 1800+ sq. ft. and comes with your own private butler on call 24/7. A one night stay ranges from $2,000 - $25,000 or more. The restaurants of the Burj Al Arab are amazing too. I ate at the Al Mahara restaurant during my stay there, and while the bill was a little high at $700, the food and atmosphere made it all worth it! On my way out leaving the hotel my butler was nice enough to bring me the exclusive and official Burj Al Arab DVD that plays throughout the hotel. What an amazing and magical place!

This aquarium is a part of the largest mall in the world "The Dubai Mall", this mall is for Emaar ( the owner of the highest tower in the world too, "Burj Dubai", and this mall, contains much more intresting things, such as a discovery centre that contains all the rest of land-water animals, and it also contains a hockey ice rink, and a big entertainment centre, and has 2 foot courts, and 1200 shops, and 14000 car parks, and the largest gold shop.

the mall is located in the united arab emirates, dubai.

The Dubai Mall 2010

The Dubai Mall is the world's largest shopping mall based on total area and sixth largest by gross leasable area. Located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, it is part of the Burj Khalifa complex, the 20-billion-dollar project has 1,200 shops. Access to the mall is provided via Doha Street, rebuilt as a double-decker road in April 2009.

Twice delayed, Dubai Mall opened on November 4, 2008, with about 600 retailers, marking the world's largest-ever mall opening in retail history. However it is not the largest in gross leasable space, and is surpassed in that category by several malls including the South China Mall, which is the world's largest, Golden Resources Mall, CentralWorld, SM City North Edsa, and SM Mall of Asia.

The Dubai Mall has recorded a visitor turn-out of more than 60,000 tickets sold for the Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Centre in the first five days, following its opening. The Dubai Mall hosted over 37 million visitors in its first year of operation, and attracts more than 750,000 visitors every week.


The Dubai Mall is the world's largest shopping mall located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates constructed by owner Emaar Properties. The Dubai Mall is the largest mall ever built on the planet. Built at the foot and an integral component of the Burj Dubai, the 20-billion-dollar project is the world's largest[1][2] with 1,200 shops, 4 times as many as the new London Westfield centre.[3] [1] Twice delayed, Dubai Mall opened on November 4, 2008, with about 600 retailers, marking the world's largest-ever mall opening in retail history. Guided by its Vision 2010 "to become one of the most valuable companies in the world," Mohamed Ali Alabbar, Chairman, Emaar Properties stated: "We are thankful to His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, UAE Vice President & Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai for encouraging us to stretch our business model, and create a shopping destination that is among the elite malls of the world

Largest Mall in the World -- Dubai UAE - Mall of Arabia - Middle East

Once finished the shopping mall will be larger than nearly any other in the world. It is difficult to say that a mall is the "largest mall" because there are various ways to measure this: sqaure footage, number of stores, size of building etc.

The leader of Dubai, Sheik Mohammad bin Rashid al Maktoum is one of the great visionaries of today. Under his leadership, as well as his family's, Dubai has grown from a small out of the way city to an international business and tourism center.

Dubai is one illustration of the changing face of the Gulf and the Arab world and the Middle East as a whole. Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia as well as other areas in the UAE such as Abu Dhabi are all undergoing a similar transformation.

The Tallest Building in the World - Burj Dubai! / Burj Khalifa Middle East

The Burj Dubai tower is designed to be the centerpiece of a large-scale, mixed-use development that will include 30,000 homes, nine hotels, 6 acres of parkland, 19+ residential towers, the Dubai Mall, and a large man-made lake. The complete 500 acre development will cost about $20 billion dollars (US). Once completed, the tower will cover a total of over 22 million square feet of development.

The official height of the Burj Dubai is kept secret because of international competition, but current estimates have it rising to a height in excess of 2,600 feet. Some estimate that it will be 189 floors or so - it is to be the tallest building in the world.

Recently, the construction site already surpassed height needed to make it (uncompeted) the second tallest building in the world.

The Burj Dubai is located in Dubai which is a city in the emirate of Dubai, part of the United arab Emirates in the Gulf region of the Middle East.

Plan Abu Dhabi 2030

The Urban Planning Council of Abu Dhabi (UPC) appointed Squint Opera to create a short film illustrating their grand Urban Planning Guide for Abu Dhabi. The film is presented at Cityscape Abu Dhabi from the 13th to the 15th of May 2008.
The film communicates the principles and visualises the UPC plans for the expansion of the city to attract investors, developers and architects. The UPC commissioned this film as an awe-inspiring vision demonstrating the scale, ambition and radical nature of the plan.

Alice Scott directed the six-minute film that describes the plan on 3D, bringing life to certain aspects of the unique environment and a future evolving culture. Through 4 main key themes (Green -- Live -- Work -- Connect) we are shown pedestrians walking the shaded sidewalks, using the world-class metro system and trams surrounded by green, energy saving residential townhouses, villas, high rises, offices and retail developments. The imagery shows desert landscaping, renewable energy measures and water-cooling canals in the streets of Abu Dhabi and demonstrates a efficient quality of life for the future population.

Nakheel Harbour and Tower

Nakheel Harbour and Tower is a multibillion dollar real estate project planned in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. It is being built by the developer Nakheel, who once declared that the finished development will be the new, unofficial capital of Dubai. It may become the Worlds Tallest Building if ever built.


Meraas Development, a new real estate developer, has burst on to Dubai's property stage with the announcement of its first-ever project worth a staggering Dh350 billion and involving one of the world's tallest buildings - with varied microclimates and a mini-Manhattan.
Jumeirah Gardens will be a fully integrated, mixed-use development project located in the old Satwa area west of Sheikh Zayed Road and flanked by Al Diyafa Street and Safa Park. The project aims to cater to a population of 50,000 to 60,000 residents.
The announcement comes amid a global market crash that has shattered investor confidence worldwide, but goes on to show that Dubai is determined to continue with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.
The development will redefine living in one of the most popular neighbourhoods of Dubai, currently undergoing demolition to pave the way for the new project.
The project will comprise seven distinct areas, taking up approximately 110 million square feet of land, including the islands. One section will host Dubai Park, which will be half the size of Safa Park.
Phase one of Jumeirah Gardens will cover around 820,000 square metres. It will comprise six main blocks of high-, mid- and low-rise office, retail and residential buildings, two hotels and a high-end shopping area.
Handover of phase one is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2011, and completion is scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2013.
"Every great city has a great park. London has its Hyde Park, New York has its Central Park. This will be Dubai Park," Sina Al Kazim, chief executive of Meraas Development, told Gulf News. The park will be surrounded on all sides by residential apartments, duplexes, penthouses, villas and commercial buildings.
Meraas is planning at least eight landmark buildings in Jumeirah Gardens, including One Dubai, One Park Avenue and Park Gate, which will have six buildings.
The islands will be made up of East Bay and Coastal, predominantly residential, but will also include hotels and resorts. Gulf News

Utilizing The Power of Average Daily Range To Trade The Forex Market

Utilizing The Power of Average Daily Range To Trade The Forex Market
Each day in the foreign exchange market has quite predictable times of heavy liquidity and movement.  They are as follows:  (all times are EST)
·         8:00 pm – Asian breakout
·         11:00 pm – Markets settle down and wait for Europe liquidity
·         2:00 am – Early European Breakout
·         3:00 am – London Open brings in heavy liquidity and direction for the day is often established
·         5:00 am – Market settle down and wait for U.S. liquidity
·         8:00 am – New York Open brings in heavy liquidity
·         11:00 am – London traders close up shop for the day leading to potential market reversals
·         2:00 pm – Often a spike in price action as U.S. traders get buys after lunch
·         4:00 pm – U.S. traders close up shop and market remains quiet until 8:00 pm Asian Breakout
Although this schedule is not guaranteed every day, under normal market conditions, these are the times that prices tend to move sharply.  Between 10 am – 2 pm each day, a currency will generally reach its range expansion extreme for the day.  Have you ever thought about the fact that a currency pair does not move an infinite amount of pips each day?  In fact, each currency pair, under normal market conditions, tends to move a rather predictable amount of pips each day.  This amount of pips that a currency pair tends to move each day is known as a currency pair’s Average Daily Range.
Counter-Trend Movements
A trader can use Average Daily Range in several ways.  First of all, it can be used to confirm counter-trend trades.  For example, let us assume the EUR/USD has been moving to the upside in a bullish move all day.  You conduct your analysis and decide that the EUR/USD is coming into a pretty strong area of resistance.  You want to sell the EUR/USD short, and it has moved 130 pips on the day.  Furthermore, you take a look at the Average Daily Range for the EUR/USD and you see that over the last 20 days, it has moved an average of 125 pips.  Therefore, the EUR/USD has exhausted its Average Daily Range, and the probability of it moving further to the upside is not highly probable.  The most probable direction for the euro is for it to move to the downside and come back into its average trading range.
Trend Continuation
The fact is that there are certain days when a currency will up and move way beyond its Average Daily Range.  In these market conditions, which are often caused by unexpected forex news, if a trader were to fade a currency when it came near its Average Daily Range, he would lose a ton of money because, on days like this, the currency may up and move two times its Average Daily Range.  However, traders can actually use the Average Daily Range indicator in order to determine when a currency may move far beyond its daily range.
As a general rule of thumb, if a currency tends to exhaust its Average Daily Range before the New York Open, then the currency pair will generally continue in the direction of its intraday trend and move far beyond its Average Daily Range.  For example, if the Average Daily Range on the EUR/USD is 125 pips, and the EUR/USD moves 125 pips by 6:30 am, then the euro is most likely going to move 200+ pips on the day.  This can be used by traders to take trend continuation signals in expectation that the currency pair is going to move far beyond its ADR on that particular day.
The Average Daily Range, when used properly, can be quite a powerful indicator of trend exhaustion and trend continuation.

Authorities in Yemen have released the 22-year-old woman suspected of posting two parcel bombs that were found on cargo planes in the UK and Dubai.

The bomb is said to have been made by the person that made the failed xmas underwear bomber. The underwear bomber was put on a plane in Amsterdam despite not having a passport. He was taken through customs by a US official.

So would this mean that if the the cia were somehow involved in letting the underwear bomber on a plane, they too are responsible in some way of creating this current security threat?

UAE acts on money transfers to Iran

It is no surprise that financial transactions with countries like the United States are banned as part of sanctions to do with Iran's nuclear programme, but now a key regional partner is also clamping down.

The central bank of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) has advised banks in the federation, including those in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, to stop currency transfers with Iran.

This could be a serious blow for Iranian businesses and individuals, but it appears that the UAE is trying to clean up its image as a international financial centre.

At the same time, the UAE is finding itself embroiled with a financial scandal developing in Afghanistan.

Money flowing out of Afghanistan to Dubai is being investigated by the Afghan government.

Al Jazeera spoke to Robin Amlot, managing editor of Banker Middle East, in Dubai and James Bays, Al Jazeera's Afghanistan correspondent, about the issues.

Dubai Moving Skyscraper

Dubai and Moscow's Moving Skyscrapers

David Fisher's company 'Dynamic Architecture' have developed a moving skyscraper! The building will be made up of 80 floors, with an apartment on each floor.

The rotating building is made possible by 79 giant power-generating wind turbines.

As well as the rotation, the wind turbines will also provide enough energy to power the entire building and feed extra energy back into the grid.

There are two buildings planned at the moment. One in Dubai and one in Moscow. The Dubai building is planned to be up and running by 2010.

Dubai metro a world class marvel

Dubai metro

The Dubai Metro (in Arabic: مترو دبي) is a driverless, fully automated metro network in the United Arab Emirates city of Dubai. The Red Line is partly operational, the Green Line is still under construction, and further lines are planned. These first two lines run underground in the city centre and on elevated viaducts elsewhere.[2] All trains and stations are air conditioned with platform edge doors to make this possible.

The first section of the Red Line, covering 10 stations, was ceremonially inaugurated at 9:09:09 PM on September 9, 2009, by Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Ruler of Dubai,[3] with the line opening to the public at 6 AM on September 10.[4] The Dubai Metro is the first urban train network in the Arabian Peninsula.[5] More than 110,000 people, which is nearly 10 per cent of Dubai’s population, used the Metro in its first two days of operation.[6] The Dubai Metro carried 10 million passengers from launch on 9 September 2009 to 9 February 2010 with 11 stations operational on the Red Line.[7]

Once the 20 km Green line opens, the Dubai Metro will overtake the title of longest automated metro network from the Vancouver Skytrain, surpassing it by 3 km.
