Ordos, China, was created on one-sixth of China's coal reserves, and was meant to attract almost 1 million people (which was later scaled back to 300,000) after having been built from scratch. But high property taxes and poor construction made it so that there is only around 100,000 people living there, leaving the greater part of the city completely empty.

One of the World's Largest Jail Systems (27 pics)

Posted in Pictures 29 Jun 2010   / 8630 views

This jail situated in Maricopa County (Arizona, the USA) is one of the world’s largest jail systems. It has an interesting history and some strange traditions. For example, inmates have to wear socks and underwear of pink color.

The jail’s facilities got overcrowded in 1993. But in order to build a new facility, it was necessary to pay about $70 million, a huge sum of money. Maricopa County Sheriff Arpaio got an idea of constructing a Tent Jail using tents donated by the USA armed forces and inmate labor. This project cost was only $100,000. And it could house about 2400 prisoners who "volunteered" to participate in the Working Inmate Program. Those inmates, who don’t want to work according to the Sheriff’s rules, have to move inside the main facility and stay there together with the rest of the prisoners.
