K0rean Heerim Architects has tried to reinvent the skyscraper with their two projects in central Asian republic of Azerbaijan. The two skyscrapers will be built in Baku, capital of Azerbaijan with a view on the Caspian sea . One building is called Full Moon Bay the other is Crescent and Caspian Plus. The two are going to be built on both side of the bay, acting as gateway markers. So far the pictures look fantastic and I really like the gateway markers idea.

The Ir@n-Contra Cargo Plane - Restaurant and Bar
What's the future for a cargo plane after it was shot down?
Well, it can start a bar and restaurant business. Not bad. Don't take it as a joke. Fairchild C-123 relates its name with one of the biggest scandals in the mid 1980's. That involved the Reagan Administration's bizarre of network for arms sales to Iran. This very cargo plane was shot down on October 5, 1986, while delivering supplies to the Nicaraguan Contras.
However, now it's known as El Avion Restaurant and bar. Ready to serve you serve you food and drinks at cost little more than usual ones. Pack your bags with lots of currency and enjoy meals under the wings, built around a 1954 Model. The most charming feature other than the menu and plane itself is the scenic beauty around seacoast blended with mild reddishness at evening sunset. I think other planes should seek inspiration from this unique one among them after their retirement.
It is not an ordinary aircraft but a restaurant & bar. The plane itself became popular long before the transformation. In 1986 it was transporting weapons from the USA to the Nicaragua smugglers but was brought down. The plane was left on the Costa-Rica coast where the locals transformed into the “El Avion” restaurant. It is located on a hilltop on the road between “Manuel Antonio” and “Quepos” in the pacific coast in Costa Rica..

Breakfast cereals are typically heavily processed foods, and most of their original micronutrients, like vitamins or minerals, are removed during the food-processing. However, most breakfast cereals are fortified with added vitamins and minerals, making them a convenient source of most B-vitamins, vitamin D and several minerals including iron. Wholegrain breakfast cereals (eg. granola, muesli, oats) are typically rich in natural B-vitamins, soluble fiber (which helps to lower cholesterol) and have a lower GI-value than regular refined cereals.
