Reaching new heights!

  1. Dubai opened the world's tallest skyscraper today. It was also renamed Burj Khalifa, to honor the Abu Dhabi leader who is the president of the United Arab Emirates. The building rises 2, 717 feet (828 meters) from the desert. The $1.5 billion dollar "vertical city" of luxury apartments and offices and a hotel designed by Giorgio Armani also plans to have the world's highest mosque (158th floor) and swimming pool (76th floor). No belly flops allowed! 
  2. Yesterday, 6 foot 10 inch Chris Bosh became the Toronto Raptors' all-time franchise scoring leader. Bosh finished Toronto's 91-86 win over San Antonio with 22 points, giving him 9, 428 points, eight more than Vince Carter.
  3. Today I finished an 8-page elearning narration for a school district in Ontario covering Basic Ladder training!
