  2. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/live/2017/may/22/manchester-arena-ariana-grande-concert-explosion-england Police says attacker died after detonating ‘improvised explosive device’ Further 59 people have been injured What we know so far Full report: Deadly attack at Manchester Arena City mobilises to help survivors with offers of rooms and free rides Key updates from the most recent police press conference: The death toll has risen to 22. Among the dead are children. A further 59 people are injured and receiving treatment in eight hospitals across Greater Manchester. Police believe the attack was carried out by one man, and are investigating if he was part of a wider network. The man died at the scene after detonating an explosive device – a suicide bomber. Police: full statement Chief constable Ian Hopkins confirms that 22 people have died and a further 59 have been injured. This has been the most horrific incident we have had to face in Greater Manchester and one that we all hoped we would never see. Families and many young people were out to enjoy a concert at the Manchester Arena and have lost their lives. Our thoughts are with those 22 victims that we now know have died, the 59 people who have been injured and their loved ones. We continue to do all we can to support them. They are being treated at eight hospitals across Greater Manchester. This is a fast-moving investigation and we have significant resources deployed to both the investigation and the visible patrols that people will see across Greater Manchester as they wake up to news of the events last night. This will include armed officers as people would expect. More than 400 officers have been involved in the operation during the night. To remind you, we were called at 10.33pm to reports of an explosion at the Manchester Arena at the conclusion of an Ariana Grande concert. More than 250 calls came in and emergency services were very quickly on scene. Emergency numbers have been established for anyone who is concerned for loved ones who may not have returned home: 0161 856 9400 or 0161 856 9900. We have been treating this as a terrorist incident and we believe that while the attack last night was conducted by one man, the priority is to establish whether he was acting alone or as part of a network. The attacker, I can confirm, died at the arena. We believe the attacker was carrying an improvised explosive device, which he detonated, causing this atrocity. We would ask people not to speculate on his details or to share names. There is a complex and wide-ranging investigation under way. Our priority is to work with the national counter-terrorist policing network and UK intelligence services to establish more details about the individual who carried out this attack.
  3. A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?" Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I’m the breadwinner of the family, so let’s call me capitalism. Your Mom, she’s the administrator of the money, so we’ll call her the Government. We’re here to take care of your needs, so we’ll call you the people. The nanny, we’ll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we’ll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense," So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said. Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents’ room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I Understand the concept of politics now." The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about." The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep shit."
  4. It's good and central location in uptown Cebu City. It's a nice loft type unit with a great view to the sea and mountains. Sure it's somehow renters market in Cebu especially when you rent out remotely. Anyhow if want ROI should ask much higher rent but it was purchased as a holiday home not investment. I'm happy to earn some money for owning expenses and find tenant who treat the apartment with respect and don't trash it and pays monthly dues and utilities on time. Can pay higher rent if feels that what is asked is too low .
  5. That is Fuente Tower 3 loft type condo. Rent is very reasonable because I'm just looking for to get some money by leasing for upkeeping, taxes and monthly dues.
