A unique transportation technology that can offer fast travel durations at competitive prices is being developed in such countries as South Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia and China. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) classifies the technology as a boat, except that it resembles an aircraft due to its central fuselage and presence of wings. However, commercial aircraft wings are designed to generate a powerful vacuum effect on the top side at high forward speeds, when the aircraft lifts off into the sky. The aircraft look-alike generates zero vacuum effect on the top side of the wings at any speed.

Food security worsening in areas suffering from civil conflict and adverse weather conditions
The Mediterranean sea has become a graveyard for Africa’s youth. Every day, we see images of what would appear to be a continent racked by conflict and poverty, and people risking – often losing – their lives in an attempt to flee . Yet Africa has 11 of the 20 fastest growing economies in the world. Africa has enormous resources, and almost half of the world’s uncultivated land that is suitable for growing food crops. So why are so many people desperate to leave behind a land of such opportunity?
