    Chinese plan to put up world's tallest building in just 90 days: When completed in the southeastern Chinese city of Changsha, the building, nicknamed "Sky City," will be 10 meters taller than the current world's tallest, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. But that building took nearly six years to complete. Sky City will be put together in modules, like Lego blocks, at the rate of two stories a day. The building will include a hospital, a school, 17 helipads, and apartments to house 30,000. The chairman of the company building Sky City has ambitions for something more than twice as tall, two kilometers.
    A bullet train crash which killed 40 people in China in July was caused by design flaws and sloppy management, the Chinese government says.
