  • Court: BP has additional-insured status under Transocean coverage
    A federal appeals court ruled that BP is an additional insured on $750 million worth of primary and excess coverage held by Transocean. BP is seeking to access the insurance to pay pollution-related costs from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion in the Gulf of Mexico. A previous ruling prohibited BP from accessing the coverage.

    The Agora Garden, a 90-degree twisted skyscraper wrapped in vertical gardens designed by Vincent Callebaut Architectures, is being built in Taipei, Taiwan. The structure, "inspired by two encircling hands clasped together and the helical structure of DNA," will feature nanotechnologies, wide planted balconies and a rainwater capture system.
