The 10 best places in the world to retire in 2017

There’s a new best country in the world to retire, according to the experts at International Living (IL), an authority on global retirement and relocation opportunities. In its Annual Global Retirement Index , Mexico — one of the most popular countries among US expats — has edged out last year’s No. 1, Panama.

The world’s first 3D-printed bridge is the ugliest thing you’ve ever seen

The world’s first 3D-printed pedestrian bridge opened last month, and while it may be a marvel of modern technology, it’s also hideous.

Opened on Dec. 14, 2016, at the Castilla-La Mancha park in Alcobendas, Spain, the 40-foot-long bridge is the brainchild of the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia. It’s built from eight separate 3D-printed parts, made using fused concrete power that has been micro-reinforced with thermoplastic polypropylene.
