In its emersed state, it produces green leaves with purplish undersides and bears attractive scarlet, bell-shaped flowers which make it highly popular among terrestrial gardeners. Submersed growth, in contrast, is bright green. Long popularized by the Dutch, L. cardinalis is a fairly common plant in the trade.

Mimosa pudica – (from Latin: pudica “shy, bashful or shrinking”; also called sensitive plant, sleepy plant, Dormilones, touch-me-not, or shy plant) is a creeping annual or perennial herb of the pea family Fabaceae often grown for its curiosity value: the compound leaves fold inward and droop when touched or shaken, defending themselves from harm, and re-open a few minutes later. The species is native to South America and Central America, but is now a pantropical weed. It can also be found in Asia in countries such as Bangladesh, Thailand, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, and Japan. It grows mostly in undisturbed shady areas, under trees or shrubs

With the lower range models such as the Polo approximated to have a starting price of up to $23,000, the service expected from this investment extends to far more than car sales.

Proposed for the mountainous region on the outskirts of Shenzhen, the waste-to-energy plant is expected to incinerate 5,000 tonnes of rubbish per day – approximately one third of the waste generated by the city’s 20 million inhabitants each year.
According to the architects, the facility will “utilise the most advanced technology in waste incineration and power generation”.
The huge circular building will boast a 66,000-square-metre roof, two thirds of which will be covered with photovoltaic panels, allowing the building to generate its own sustainable supply of energy.
It will also feature a series of visitor facilities, including a looping walkway that offers a behind-the-scenes look at the inner workings of the plant, before leading up to a rooftop viewing platform.
“The project firstly aims to provide a clean, simple and modern technical facility to deal with the city’s growing waste,” explained architect Chris Hardie, head of Schmidt Hammer Lassen’s Shanghai office.
“At the same time it aims to educate visitors to this growing waste challenge by taking them on an elevated walkway tour of the plant that ends with a 1.5-kilometre panoramic view of both the surrounding mountains and the 66,000-square-metre roofscape that will be geared to producing actual renewable energy,” he told Dezeen.
The circular structure will encompass the entire plant, including auxiliary buildings – the aim was to keep the facility as compact as possible.
The entrance will be a snaking ramp that starts from a landscaped park and winds up between a pair of smokestacks.

The world’s first power station was designed and built by Lord Armstrong at Cragside, England in 1868. Water from one of the lakes was used to power Siemens dynamos. The electricity supplied power to lights, heating, produced hot water, ran an elevator as well as labor-saving devices and farm buildings.
The first public power station was the Edison Electric Light Station, built in London at 57, Holborn Viaduct, which started operation in January 1882. This was a project of Thomas Edison that was organized and managed by his partner, Edward Johnson. A Babcock and Wilcox boiler powered a 125-horsepower steam engine that drove a 27-ton generator called “Jumbo”, after the celebrated elephant. This supplied electricity to premises in the area that could be reached through the culverts of the viaduct without digging up the road, which was the monopoly of the gas companies. The customers included the City Temple and the Old Bailey. Another important customer was the Telegraph Office of the General Post Office, but this could not be reached though the culverts. Johnson arranged for the supply cable to be run overhead, via Holborn Tavern and Newgate.
