What Does It Mean

What does it mean when msn.com devotes a whole section of its homepage to a section titled "Related stories", with stories titled "Downtown Shooting", "14-Year-Old Shot In Thigh During Drive-By Shooting", "Deadly Shooting', "Police Investigate Delaware County Shooting", "One Dead In Wake Of Quadruple Shooting", "7 shot on Harlem street corner, police say". And these are titles on only one website for only one hour and one day. What does that mean. What would Mayors Against Gun violence, New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, The National Rifle Association, Alfred B. Noble, the inventor of dynamite and merchant of death of whom the Noble Peace Prize was named after, I think, and any other gun related advocacy groups have to say about this. And again I could copy my blog posts over and over in my appeal to banish guns from every human being on the face of planet earth, and to banish the images of guns from all forms of advertising, media and marketing in the news and pop culture. Or is that some sort of utopian thought. And I am one blogger. And then there is the news of yet another gun shooting and act of gun violence in the news yesterday, today and tomorrow. So many atrocities of the is it the fourth amendment right to kill anyone over a piece of property, that I am becoming numb and desensitized from reading the stories from a news, advertising, marketing and media industry that feeds itself off of violence, of yet another person who has lost their life to gun violence for no reason at all except for the fact that guns have been invented for the merchant of death industry, a seemingly endless cycle that feeds upon itself. Guns are the worst invention of an industry ever. Is there hope for the world and mankind. Where is the world headed in these days and times. Are the morals and values of society declining and collapsing. No one is free when others are oppressed. What was life like before the invention of guns. Is another world possible? And what does this have to do with a No Police State? Peace on earth and goodwill to all mankind.

勤)今(13)日發布 酒店上班重大訊息,包美及子公司璞建設合 寒假打工計以100億元價格出售集團所擁有亞百貨大樓B1、B2、1~2F及6~1 暑假打工4-1F,共14個樓層、約12826建坪予邦人壽,其中勤處分收益約14.14億元 酒店PT,璞建設處分利益約28.4億元,勤美可依持股比例60.88%認列。

美說,耗時3年多的整合,終讓 台北酒店經紀亞百貨大樓成為一棟沒有不良債權陰影的商業大樓,並以處分的方式實現其整合利益,可以看出美轉型成多 酒店經紀角化的地產開發商的苦心及整合能力。

美指出,環百貨大樓地處 酒店打工辦公室租金最高區域之ㄧ的敦北商圈,又因松山機場及小巨蛋,有著極高的國際能見度;加上施工中的捷運松山線、及即將開幕的台北金融中心及東方文華 酒店兼差酒店,實為台北市內獨一無二的地標性的建築。

勤表示,以100億元的價格處分 酒店兼職給邦人壽,對勤集團來說,除可以獲取不錯的整合利益,更樂見新東家得以繼續享有及整合敦北商圈發展未來的 酒店工作增值空間,可以說是一個雙方都滿意的結果。
