The story starts with an impressive baseball stadium in the center of Osaka in Japan to become the headquarters of the famous Japanese baseball team Nankai Hawks. The capacity of the land reached the 31.380 people and created based on all the new technologies and included the most modern construction. The fans, in fact, thrilled with the impressive result of step, but their joy did not last long.

In 1998 the company who build and operated the stadium decided to sell the site to a Japanese group of companies and transferred to the city Fukuoka, which built the new baseball stadium. To result was that stage to fall into disuse and be left unused for a long time. By the time it was decided to construct houses in the interior, while parks and green flower beds filled soon the scene.

This created a strange little town on the court, in the center of Osaka, where residents had the privilege to say, and not without a reason, that baseball is deeply in their heart!

Converting a building into a Rubik’s Cube

0

Rubik’s Cube is considered one of the toughest puzzles in the world. Its power lies in its patience, the way of looking at you from multiple angles and showing insensitivity to be twisted with a gradual anxiety. It does not care about your logic or your sweat and when the world will end, a Rubik’s cube proud will take advantage of the time to play marbles, that make them so graceful of round. Yes, that was about a sense of humor for a cube which is obviously based on geometric insults.

The good draft Javier Lloret, however angry, has turned the Rubik’s cube into a building. The most vindictive gesture you can do is paint the front, and no one makes sure that you do not like makeup. Proposed to solve the Rubik’s cube, the Lloret one must be manipulated by a regular cube in the front of the building and this will follow the movements of nature with light quadrants via Bluetooth. This increases the difficulty of the puzzle of course because you cannot look at the building to see all the angles, but therein lies the grace to try to start and finish it.

The Ursids are named after the constellation from which the shooting stars seem to come: the Little Dipper which is Ursa Minor in Latin. The radiant which is the point where the effect seems to converge to the perspective trajectories of shooting stars, of this shower is the Little Dipper bowl, where the orange star is Cochab. The Ursids originate on the trail of dust left by the comet 8P/Tuttle.
