New York plans world’s longest building

May 10, 2017
A New York architectural firm has proposed a creative way to bend the city’s restrictive property zoning rules with a new curved skyscraper that aims to be the world’s longest building.
The Big Bend will measure 1.22km in length from end to end – features a striking U-shaped bend at its highest central point.
The new building will also feature a lift that can “travel in curves”, moving both vertically and horizontally in continuous loops along the length of the glass-lined tower.
Overlooking Central Park, The Big Bend would join area of luxury skyscrapers in the city known as “Billionaires’ Row”.
The Big Bend does not currently have planning permission and may never be built, but we think it’s pretty cool!

Conjoined twins separated in 27 hour operation

October 18, 2016
After 27 hours in surgery, a pair of twin boys joined at the head have been successfully separated.
Anias and Jadon McDonald, both 13 months old, underwent the life-threatening operation at the Children’s Hospital in New York.
They are now recovering in hospital as they begin their new lives apart.
The separating procedure took around 16 hours, with another several hours of plastic surgery needed to rebuild the skulls and make them whole.
Dr Goodrich is one of the world’s leading experts on so-called craniopagus surgery. This was his seventh such surgery performed by Dr Goodrich and the longest. It is only the 52nd craniopagus separation surgery worldwide since 1952.
