I have some fond memories of playing the Sega Saturn back in the day; mostly at friend’s houses and the karate studio as I had a PlayStation at home (along with a Genesis and Game Gear). I had fun playing Nights: Into Dreams, Street Fighter Alpha 2, Sonic Jam (believe it or not), Sega Rally, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and the like.

One of the issues that the world of agriculture is finding today is the lack of concern for the practice due to the large – – and increasing — number of young people migrating to cities. Over the past several year, there have been prototypes for urban/vertical farms (self-contained or co-existing with occupied buildings) developed, and since it seems that urban growth will continue to rise, these new agricultural means and methods see to be the way to go. Kono Designs, the architecture firm behind the project at the Pasona offices, is hoping that this new urban farm/office building type will inspire young urbanites to possibly reconsider agriculture and possibly help reinvigorate rural areas.

The Sky Tree is Japan’s 2,080-foot tall communications centerpiece and the second tallest building on the planet, dwarfed only by the Burj Khalifa. It is located in Sumida, Tokyo and cost $806 million to complete, including a two-month delay due to the earthquake and tsunami. Over half a million workers assisted in its construction which was completed in late-February to early-March.
