Art Suites at Icehotel

Here is a selection of images of the Ice hotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden, including the Art Suites created by artists from around the world. The temporary hotel is created from snow and ice each winter. The
hotel also includes an Ice Church and an Ice Bar.
The dropping of the temperature to several degrees below zero in Jukkasjärvi marks the start of an ephemeral art endeavor. Using only frozen water form the Torne River, artists from all over the world gather in this small Swedish village, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle, to create an exclusive art exhibition: ICE HOTEL in Jukkasjärvi.

Smallest Girl in the World

Kenadie Jourdin-Bromley, known around the world as "the littlest angel", was born Feb.13, 2003, weighing just 2 lbs, 8 ounces. Doctors were at a loss as to why she was born so small and told her parents this little miracle baby likely wouldn't live through the night. But she did.

She continued to defy doctors expectations and at the age of 8 months, Kenadie was finally diagnosed with primordial dwarfism, a genetic condition that is believed to affect only about 100 people in the world. She isn't expected to grow past about 30 inches or weigh more than 8 pounds.

Nearing the age of four, Kenadie now walks, runs, laughs, smiles and is beginning to talk. But, perhaps more importantly, it's the way Kenadie makes people feel that is her strongest achievement.

She may be small but no one would argue that this little girl has an enormous effect on people throughout the world.

luxury floating hotel in the sky

Fancying the idea of a flying hotel, the designer Jean Marie Massaud conjured up the future options for travel, the Manned Cloud! Bagging the award by the Design Observer 2008, the Manned Cloud is actually a flying hotel that will enable its commuters to indulge and experience spectacular and exotic places without being intrusive or exploitative. The whale-shaped airship, developed by Massaud Studio in affiliation with French national aerospace research body ONERA, will be able to accommodate 40 guests and have a range of 5,000 km. Two two-deck cabin will contain amenities including a restaurant, a library, a fitness suite and a spa. Travelers can also take a sun bath on a sun deck on top of the double helium-filled envelopes. It will be a dream come true for many to live in the sky and watch the Earth from above. Hit the jump for more pics of this whale in the sky………….

It is estimated that the travelers can enjoy a non-stop round the world in 3 days, while staying in any of its 60 rooms as the Manned Cloud will have a cruising speed of 130 km/h and a top speed of 170 km/h. Since this behemoth gets its lift from helium, there's not much danger of a fiery hydrogen explosion.
