I noticed that they (finally) re-designed the mascot in front of the Lotte World amusement park!



The old design of the giant hamster/squirrel (a bit creepy)




The new design of the mascot. Looks nicer

fully correctly speaking, the ranking is about the most influential city. Influential in terms of buisness and world economy.
Its from the recent forbes ranking, which is further explained here: http://www.forbes.com/pictures/edgl4...troduction-14/

the ranking criteria are:
Quote:
the amount of foreign direct investment the cities have attracted; the concentration of corporate headquarters; how many particular business niches the cities dominate; air connectivity (ease of travel to other global cities); strength of producer services; financial services; technology and media power; and racial diversity.
Seoul would score much higher if the last category wouldn't count

Tokyo isn't doing a lot better in that category and they're fifth. That's 11 jumps ahead of Seoul. .

Are these journal articles really trying to pin blame of all this instability on the tower itself? LOL. I mean, could it be possible if the ground is horrible? Perhaps. But I'm not enough of a geological expert to comment. The piles and foundation alone should provide far enough support. Besides, even if the surrounding ground's stability could be attributed to the heavy LWT, I'm sure that tower (like any skyscraper) has plenty of monitoring and safety built in in case the ground were ever an issue and work would stop long before that point.

It sounds like these rants have absolutely no idea of how structural or geotechnical engineering / planning work.

Hahahahahaha. I can't even. Legit. This sh*t pisses me off now. It's just so ridiculous. Have some common sense people. And when you challenge people on it they get all defensive. Ugh, ignorance is bliss.

I mean, I get the sense and importance of being prepared in case of disaster. I suppose it must be similar with CA and earthquakes. But buildings don't cause earthquakes ;p

Google's horrible attempt at translating that link above:

"Be prepared to assume a situation where the building collapsed around like Lotte World Tower '(the second Lotte World) at the same time due to Prepare yanghuidong Bloomberg News] Fire Department recently encountered several times in Songpa-gu, Seoul Seokchon one sinkhole (land off) was confirmed. Appeared to be focused on providing ways to secure "prime time" Preparedness is the situation in the building collapse. Especially including Gangnam, Songpa-gu, Seoul gyodaeyeok balsaenggeon last 22 to 83 of the sinkhole's found on the road since 2008, experts reported occurrence is itgido area concerned. <1 dated August 20, Bloomberg surface '[Single] Gangnam' Sinkhole Terror '... 82 place off and sleep', see>

According to the Seoul Metropolitan Government has prepared a sink hole caused by 23 days the last 21 days from the end of the second Lotte World and gotten practice problems and lower levels and the upper floors collapsed buildings around the fire, the fire department is Songpa Action. Joint training is conducted once per year against a national emergency, one tube civil and military administration organized gotten to safety practice.

In the 'Golden secure room at the same time according to the surrounding buildings collapsed sink hole "in Songpa Fire's found in the last second Lotte World around five and seven Seokchon underpass near the sink-hole total of 13 large buildings around the same time as the collapse is concerned persons, property damage occurred. Because of this, I saw that there is a need to prepare a large number of casualties, property damage occur if there is an accident happen collapse gotta attack the nearby infrastructure such as roads, sewer and underground maeseolmul and the communication, power, etc., fire authorities. Explained that "the universal is not just arrive on the scene first, as in the past" if both buildings crumble around the sink hole is due to fire authorities. This change is analyzed as a recognition of the Fire Department after the deal has led to a large disaster responders insufficient number of years in the Coast Guard sinking accident in April.

This was pointed out that measures to minimize the damage to life, property damage and prevent the spread understanding of the situation, rather than on-site activities, such as the collapse factor firefighting authorities. Another added that if the roads because of the traffic chaos this caused destruction gotta be difficult to identify the vehicle dispatched beforehand a detour, and should also take advantage workforce around the site, such as police and volunteer firefighters, volunteers autonomous traffic.

Each public institution has collapsed accident site activity guidelines stated. Responsible for receiving and dispersing the homeless can mobilize private resources management and support Ward Funeral deaths, and is in charge of the scene and surrounding traffic control, police have complained force trends. In addition it is also based on the emergency repair facilities, including electricity, gas, telecommunications, water supply and road emergency repair of water and power and support, and Korea Gas Corporation, KT, etc., and the road establishments. To conduct civil support activities that may be involved in the early companies such as heavy equipment, the Red Cross is only in private.

Finally, after all this is done is to configure the recovery activities related organizations and TF (Task Force) team take, and the causes and prevention of accidents to provide a method to analyze the institutional improvement issues.

"The ways to take advantage of any reference to the work of the Fire gotten practice" Fire officials said about it."
