June 29, 2011. These "supertrees," under construction in Singapore, are vertical gardens, ranging from 75 to 150 feet in height and embedded with tropical flowering climbers, ferns and epiphytes. Although they loom somewhat menacingly over the humans who are building them, they’re part of an effort to make the center of the city more livable.

This week: “supertrees” in Singapore, the Glastonbury Festival heats up, the Mounties perform a ceremony, protests in Athens, military exercises in Iran, a car bomb explodes in Thailand, Chinese communism celebrates 90 years, and extreme weather across the world.
