DESCRIPTION

Dubai (in Arabic: دبيّ, Dubayy, /dʊ'baɪ/ in English) can either refer to one of the seven emirates that constitute the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the eastern Arabian Peninsula, or that emirate's main city, sometimes called "Dubai city" to distinguish it from the emirate.The modern emirate of Dubai was created with the formation of the United Arab Emirates in 1971. However, written accounts documenting the existence of the city have existed at least 150 years prior to the formation of the UAE. Dubai shares legal, political, military and economic functions with the other emirates within a federal framework, although each emirate has jurisdiction over some functions such as civic law enforcement and provision and upkeep of local facilities. Dubai has the largest population and is the second largest emirate by area, after Abu Dhabi.[4] With Abu Dhabi, it is one of only two emirates to possess veto power over critical matters of national importance in the UAE.[5] Dubai has been ruled by the Al Maktoum dynasty since 1833. The emirates' current ruler, Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, is also the Prime Minister and Vice President of the UAE.Revenues from petroleum and natural gas contribute less than 6% (2006)[6] of Dubai's US$ 37 billion economy (2005).[7] A majority of the emirate's revenues are from the Jebel Ali free zone authority (JAFZA)[8] and, increasingly, from tourism and other service-oriented businesses. Dubai has attracted world-wide attention through innovative real estate projects [9] and sports events. This increased attention, coinciding with its emergence as a world business hub, has also highlighted human rights issues concerning its largely foreign workforce.by http://NewYorkermen.com

Text of Welcome the World Dubai

Remember this? Yes, yes it is the little hotel in Dubai.

This is the Burj Al Arab, the only 7 stars hotel in the world, it was built in only 18 months... And opened its doors in 2003.....

This hotel is in Dubai, in the Arab Emirates. Yes, a lot of oil and a lot of money....

Just to go in and see it costs 60 . Can you imagine what it would cost to spend the night?..

... In a little room like this one....

Or this one....

Let me tell you: you can enjoy one night in a luxury suite from $7,500 to $15,000 the most expensive...

This is the panoramic suite for $ 8.250 the night...

You need to add what it will cost you to dine in this restaurant

Once you are there you can swim in one of the numerous pools....

Or perhaps take a bath in something more simple and intimate...

You can have a drink in one the numerous bars...

.... and be always in a meeting...

... or play a tennis match with Nadal...

Crazy isnt it? And who will worry if you lost a ball?. For the price of one hour of court you can buy hundreds of balls...

And take a look at the Indoor Winter Season You can ski down the slope while everyone else is outside in an 85 F... Yes it is also inDubai

It was like this a couple of years ago...

And now... finished, How do you like it?, colosal, isnt it?... (look at the size of the palm trees...)

This is The World: Imitating a world map, the group of islands only costs USA$7 millions.Note: To go to your private island you need a helicopter or a boat.

This is how it was done..

Finally, take a look at this rotating skyscraper....

This tower has a height of 250 meters and 59 floors mounted in a concrete core which will serve as a rotating shaft. The floors will be preassembled and then attached to the core of the building. Each floor will rotate separate from the others. The velocity will be slow and not noticed by the residents.

The tower will have solar and aeolian electric system generators to be selfsufficient. The project is Italian and has not begun yet. It is predicted that its construction, will last two and a half years. The projected cost will be around 500 million dollars.
