Graffiti – made by humans

It is obvious that people use this space. Two of those signs are directions for English speaking people but the other one is a notice for the public, written in English and an Asian language. There are obviously both English speaking people and Asians working in the buildings. One of the buildings is a restaurant and the other one is a Italian cafe.

The space in between

It is hard to notice the space without knowing that it exists. When you look closer you can see a narrow and dirty alleyway which is the space in between.  This space is a private space not intended for the public.

Taken at daytime!

Where do people rape?

Rapists appear in all walks of life, and can be of any age or social status; these considerations may influence their choice of targets.

Rapists may commonly be held to be wild-eyed strangers lurking down dark alleyways concealing weapons alongside their intent. In fact they are likely to be known in some way to the target of their assault, typically as family members, friends, neighbors, employers or colleagues. Despite pervasive social, political and legal conceptions that males commit the majority of rape, research is beginning to show that female rapists are much more prevalent than they were thought to be when rape research was limited exclusively to male rapists.

Low position on social status ladder linked to faster ageing

Scientists have uncovered evidence of a new class divide: the lower our social standing, the faster we age.The claim follows the surprise discovery of accelerated ageing among working class volunteers, leaving them biologically older than those higher up the social ladder.

Genetic tests showed that being working class could add the equivalent of seven years to a person’s age.

And moving down in the world by marrying someone from a lower social class also added years to a woman’s biological age, scientists report today in the journal Aging Cell.
