Article of the Week - Antilia

Antilia is the name of a twenty-seven floor personal home in South Mumbai belonging to businessman Mukesh Ambani, the billionaire Chairman of Reliance Industries. There will be 600 full-time staff to maintain the residence, which was reported in the Indian Media to be the most expensive home in the world. It has been described as the "Taj Mahal of 21st century India".
The home will house Ambani, wife Nita, their three children and Ambani's mother.

ndian media frequently reported that Antilia is the world's most expensive home costing between 1 and 2 billion US$. Thomas Johnson, director of marketing at architecture firm Will and Hirsch Bedner Associates that was consulted with by Reliance during building floor plan design, was cited by Forbes Magazine as estimating the cost of the residence at nearly $2 billion. In June 2008, a Reliance spokesman told the New York Times that it will cost $50–$70 million to build. Upon completion in 2010, media reports again speculated that, due to increasing land prices in the area, the tower may now be worth as much as US$1 billion.

Some Indians are proud of the "ostentatious house," while others see it as "shameful in a nation where many children go hungry." Dipankar Gupta, a sociologist at New Delhi's Jawaharlal Nehru University, opined that "such wealth can be inconceivable" not only in Mumbai, "home to some of Asia's worst slums," but also in a nation with 42 percent of the world's underweight children younger than five. Recently Ratan Tata said that "It's sad Mukesh Ambani lives in such opulence".

MNT > MNF (Unless The Pack Is Playing, Obvs)

Quizmistress Mal was back at Camp Bar after an 8 day too long trip to Vegas for work. Eleven teams competed for bar tabs on Monday night while simultaneously keeping up with their fantasy footballs scores and drinking some adult beverages.

First and second place came down to a sudden death round, but it was ultimately Rest In Peace G-Baby who took home the $30 bar tab, just guessing $5 shy of the answer from the Hilton Hotel themed question.

Second place tonight and a $20 bar tab went to I Didn't Know There Were Switch Hitters in Football. 

Not going home empty handed, great job team!

Last but not least, let's give it up for We Had a Filthy Team Name Picked Out, But Our Boss Showed Up at the Bar for Best Team Name.

Still coming in with $10!

Until next time Milwaukee, drink while you think...

Article of the Week - The Burma Railway

The Burma Railway, also known as the Death Railway, the Burma-Siam Railway, the Thailand–Burma Railway and similar names, was a 415 kilometres (258 mi) railway between Bangkok, Thailand, and Rangoon, Burma (now Yangon, Myanmar), built by the Empire of Japan in 1943, to support its forces in the Burma campaign of World War II. The line was closed in 1947, but the section between Nong Pla Duk and Nam Tok was reopened ten years later in 1957.

Forced labour was used in its construction. About 180,000 Asian civilian labourers (mainly romusha) and 60,000 Allied prisoners of war (POWs) worked on the railway. Of these, around 90,000 Asian civilian labourers and 12,399 Allied POWs died as a direct result of the project. The dead POWs included 6,318 British personnel, 2,815 Australians, 2,490 Dutch, about 356 Americans, and about 20 POWs from other British Commonwealth countries (the Indian Empire, New Zealand and Canada).

The most famous portion of the railway is Bridge 277, "the bridge over the River Kwai", which was built over a stretch of river which was then known as part of the Mae Klong. The greater part of the Thai part of the route followed the valley of the Khwae Noi River (Khwae: branch or tributary; Noi: small; Khwae is frequently mispronounced by non-Thai speakers as "Kwai", the Thai word for water buffalo). This gave rise to the name "River Kwai" in English. In 1960, because of the discrepancy between fact and fiction, the part of the Mae Klong which passes under the famous bridge was renamed as the Khwae Yai (Thai แควใหญ่, English "big tributary").
