Kazakhstan has unveiled a new architectural project for its capital Astana - a giant transparent tent that will contain an indoor city.

The 150m-high (500ft) dome, designed by UK architect Norman Foster, will be built in just over a year. The tent is being made from special material that absorbs sunlight to create the effect of summer inside. Astana lies in the very heart of the Central Asian steppe. Temperatures there often drop to -30C in the winter.

'Difficult project'

The final shape of the world's biggest tent was revealed in a 3D model by Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev. Underneath, in an area larger than 10 football stadiums, will be a city with squares and cobbled streets, canals, shopping centres and golf courses. The idea is to recreate summer, so that when the outside temperature is -30C, the residents of the Kazakh capital can play outdoor tennis, take boat rides or sip coffee on the pavement cafes.

Called Khan Shatyry, the project is designed by Lord Foster, who has recently built a giant glass pyramid in Astana. "Nothing of the sort has been done before, and from the engineering point of view it's an extremely difficult project," says Fettah Tamince, the head of Turkey's development company Sembol that is building the tent. Mr Tamince is nevertheless confident the company can complete the construction in just 12 months. [...]

What is beauty?

Every now and then, we hear one person say: "He/she is beautiful". In response, we'll hear someone say: "No way, he/she is ugly". There's nothing wrong with either person's remark, because I think the definition of beauty stems from one's perspective. However, at times you will come across people arguing about another person's looks, about how he/she is or isn't beautiful. I think that argument is ridiculous, because as I stated earlier, what one person may find attractive, may be equally repulsive to another.

There seems to be a vague, yet generally accepted definition of beauty for both men and women, the classic: "Tall, dark and handsome" for men, and "Tall, thin and blonde". When we get into details, there seem to be widely different conceptions of beauty. People in the West generally seem to find darker skin, darker hair and darker eye color more attractive, whereas in the East, people find lighter, blonde hair, and lighter eye colors a sign of beauty. It seems that that old saying: "The grass is always greener on the other side of the fence" holds when it comes to describing beauty as well.

Verdict: What you may deem ugly, may be beautiful to another, so respect the preference of other people by accepting their idea of beauty rather than indulging in a long, fruitless argument about how they could possibly find something or someone attractive to the senses.

World AIDS Day

World AIDS Day, observed December 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. AIDS has killed more than 30 million people, with another 40 million people positive for HIV, making it one of the most destructive epidemics in recorded history. Despite recent, improved access to antiretroviral treatment and care in many regions of the world, the AIDS epidemic claimed an estimated 3.1 million (between 2.8 and 3.6 million) lives in 2005 of which, more than half a million (570,000) were children.

The concept of a World AIDS Day originated at the 1988 World Summit of Ministers of Health on Programmes for AIDS Prevention. Since then, it has been taken up by governments, international organizations and charities around the world. From 1988 to 2004, the World AIDS Day was organized by UNAIDS, who, after consultation with other organizations, chose a theme.

In 2005 UNAIDS handed over responsibility for World AIDS Day to The World AIDS Campaign (WAC), an independent organisation. In 2005, they chose Stop AIDS: Keep the Promise as the theme for World AIDS days through to 2010. This theme is not specific to World AIDS Day but also to the work WAC does throughout the year. The student element of the campaign, the Student Stop AIDS Campaign (SSAC), is a key part of increasing awareness among young people across the UK.
