Jumped from 26th floor

Today a man jumped down two buildings next to where I am staying. My wife & my son passed the scene when he was already covered by a police blanket. The shoes were still looking out. My son did not recognized the seriousness. Later we heard that this was a mainland father had a dispute with his adult son about money (is there anything else in HK than MONEY ?). The son left & then the father jumped. It was a very bright and nice day today & I just wonder what in the world can be so bad that somebody is that brave (or coward ?)to jump instead just face the problem and get it settled somehow.
This song is dedicated to the unknown jumper - ACROSS THE UNIVERSE.

HONG KONG: Mark 6 Crazy

Hong Kong Mark Six lottery jackpot is now 100 Million Hong Kong Dollar.Next draw is on Friday 20.05. - means today.
Until closing of Thursday night tickets turn-over was HKD 171 Million.
Lets bet they will at least crack the HKD 250 Million in selling by this evening
before closing the selling at 9.15 pm HK time.
But one thing please somebody explain to me:
They are all saying 1st price is now 1 Billion - actually 1 Billion = 1,000 Millions -
how can this be HKD 100 Million ? 1 Billion is much more than HKD 100 Million.
I know the chinese have problems with too many zero's - I have checked already
Wikipedia & other sources but couldnt find any clear explanation why they call
HKD 100 Million 1 Billion.
Anybody has a clue on this ?

Please read yourself - this is from the ECONOMIST

Comparing Chinese provinces with countries

All the parities in China

Which countries match the GDP, population and exports of Chinese provinces?

China is now the world’s second-biggest economy, but some of its provinces by themselves would rank fairly high in the global league. Our map shows the nearest equivalent country. For example, Guangdong's GDP (at market exchange rates) is almost as big as Indonesia's; the output of both Jiangsu and Shandong exceeds Switzerland’s. Some provinces may exaggerate their output: the sum of their reported GDPs is 10% higher than the national total. But over time the latter has consistently been revised up, suggesting that any overstatement is modest.
What about other economic yardsticks? Guangdong exports as much as South Korea, Jiangsu as much as Taiwan. Shanghai’s GDP per person is as high as Saudi Arabia’s (at purchasing-power parity), though still well below that in China’s special administrative regions, Hong Kong and Macau. At the other extreme, the poorest province, Guizhou, has an income per head close to that of India. Note that these figures use the same PPP conversion rate for the whole of China, but prices are likely to be lower in poorer provinces than in richer ones, slightly reducing regional inequality.
Correction, February 25th: The original figure given for Hong Kong's exports included re-exports. This has been changed to refer to domestic exports only.

Dear All,
not so much going on - isn't it ? So I just saw some news about China & US meetings over there in USA - it seems they all try to be a "happy family" - isn't it ? Surely some little differences always will be there.
So the attached clip is somewhat quite matching - think twice & listen the lyrics. You need to open via this link:
