Moscow, the New Skyscraper Capital of Europe

Moscow's newly built skyscraper garden (Img:Bradmoscu)
Completed in 2010, the taller of the two City of Capitals skyscrapers, located in Moscow, is the new tallest building in Europe. Moscow is also home of the second and third tallest buildings in Europe, all completed in the last decade. Maybe the Russians feel that ground level is not cold enough in the Moscow winter and would rather be 1000 feet in the air. At 306 meters tall, about the height of US Bank tower, the tallest building in Los Angeles (the Sears Tower Willis Tower is 442 meters; damn it, I just can't get used to that.), City of Capitals is located in Moscow's International Business Center district. The same district contains four of the five tallest buildings under construction in Europe, all of which will be taller than City of Capitals, though at least two are on hold due to the economic downturn, and an additional, even taller, project has been canceled outright. The other of the five tallest buildings under construction in Europe is in London.

  3. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  8. I leave a leave a response when I like a post on a site or I have something to
    add to the discussion. It is caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I read.
    And after this article "Moscow, the New Skyscraper Capital of Europe".
    I was moved enough to leave a comment :-P I do have a couple of questions for
    you if it's okay. Could it be simply me or do a few of these responses look as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at additional social sites, I'd
    like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list every one of all your
    community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

    any problems of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
