21 photos of the most bizarre real estate projects around the world that were left in ruins

  • All over the world, people have built truly wild homes, hotels, and resorts that are no longer in use and now abandoned.
  • Each pod in the city was built to resemble UFOs, becoming a town of the future.
  • Since many construction workers committed suicide while building the pods, people believe the city is haunted.
  • The Ryugyong Hotel remains dark in the Pyongyang skyline, except for the light atop of the pyramid which warns airplanes of its existence.
  • The building remained a concrete eyesore until 2008 when the country started working on the its exterior.
  • With 100,000 LED lights, the building's outside lit up with images of political leaders, events, and monuments.
  • In 2014, a developer started building villas that resembled miniature castles.
  • The struggle of finding a use for Olympic venues after the games' end is not uncommon for host cities all over the world.

Program Development by Stepwise Refinement (1971)

  • A simple condition for reaching the limit is the event when the first queen is moved beyond row 8, in which case regression out of the first column will take version of the nonrecursive program: considerfirstcolumn; repeat trycolumn; if safe then begin setqueen; considernextcolumn; if lastcoldone then begin PRlNT(x); regress end end else regress regressouttofirstcol Indication of a solution being found by printing it now occurs directly at the level of detection, i.e. before leaving the repetition clause.
  • The recursive program is extended with even greater ease following the same considerations: procedure Trycolumn(j); begin integer i; (declaralions of procedures testsquare, advancequeen, setqueen, removequeen, lastsquare) i := 0; repeat advancequeen; testsquare; if safe then begin setqueen; x[j] := i; if not lastcoldone then Trycolumn(i + l) else PRlNl'(x); removequeen end until lastsquare end The main program starting the algorithm then consists (apart from initialization of a, b, and c) of the single statement Trycolumn(1) .

The A + R model

  • While responsive design makes use of CSS and/or JS to adapt layouts and contents based on predefined breakpoints, the adaptive approach provides pre-structured templates that will be served based on the user agent and the device type.
  • Developing web applications the responsive design is frequently used, such as building specific experiences through an adaptive development, like Twitter and Facebook mobile do.
  • Restructuring: With this approach we can develop and deliver different layouts to provide the best experience for a specific environment like a touch-only mobile device, or hybrid-touch devices.
  • The A+R model combines both the responsive and adaptive approaches based on a single major breakpoint.
  • Inside each experience we can define minor breakpoints to adapt the layout based on the available space.
  • For example, users which use a tablet will may see a touch-optimised experience (adaptive), but we can still adapt the layout based on the device orientation (responsive).

Another foot washed up in British Columbia. Authorities are not alarmed

  • A foot found inside a new Nike running shoe in September is the 15th discovered in the area since 2007.
  • The coroners service in the Canadian province has not been able to identify who it belongs to yet and on Monday asked for the public's help.
  • Authorities have said it is because of the way humans decompose.
  • They note that feet are protected by shoes from the elements and marine creatures.
  • Ten previous feet have been matched to missing people, the coroners service said on its website.
  • This 15th foot was found in West Vancouver and DNA tests were unable to tie the remains to a missing person.
  • Authorities released a photo of a light gray Nike Free RN shoe with white laces, a white sole and a blue sock.
  • The bone structure indicates the person was younger than 50, the coroner's office said.

[ Elixir | Why Linked Lists? ]

  • While going through Elixir's doc, I saw that Elixir uses linked lists under the hood for their linear data structure.
  • A linked list doesn't have the same constraint, as the nodes are all stored separately in memory, which means we don't really need to worry about space/time complexity while adding/delete nodes in list.
  • This gives us our first reason as to why it uses a list, however that's not the whole story - here's where recursive structural/tail sharing jumps in and everything starts making sense.
  • Combined with the immutable nature of the language, we know that the data can never change.
  • If you want to read a little more, you can look into Trie trees which have the exact same concepts of sharing datas/prefixes!
