パリは燃えているか

映像の世紀メインテーマ パリは燃えているか
 hitler said 'is paris burning ?'in a movie

元々絵描き崩れであったヒットラーはパリに深いこだわりがありました。
戦況が徐々に思わしくなくなり、ノルマンディーに連合国軍が上陸してパリも危うい状況となると、ヒットラーはパリを失うくらいなら壊してしまえと、パリが危なくなったらパリの要所やルーブルやエッフェル塔に爆薬を仕掛けて破壊する指令をだします。
しかし、パリ占領ドイツ軍のコルティッツ将軍はこれを実行せず、パリは陥落して将軍は降伏してしまいます。

この過程をフランス自由軍とレジスタンス側から描いた映画の題名が「パリは燃えているか」であり、ラストシーン近くで投降したコルティッツ将軍の部屋のかけっ放しの電話の受話器から「パリは燃えているか」というヒットラー(役)の声が響き渡るという名シーンがあります。
実際に叫んだかどうかは不明。

Malls that cater to 要求に応える well off consumers are doing just fine.But that's not the case with those that have middle class and lower income customer basis. I read somewhere that the showrooming may have played a role in the downfall 衰退 of the traditional shoppin mall.Do you folks buy that?皆さんも同意しますか?When online shoppings took off人気がでる and smartphones became ubiquitous,showrooming became an accepted許容される part of comsumer behavior,More and more people use their smartphones to comparison-shop比較購入する in stores.But brick and motar 従来型のretailers fought back応戦しました proactively.先手を売ってThey work hard to improve customer service and offered product giveaway 無料のサンプルAnd they realize that the best way to deal with showrooming challenge難題was to integrate their online and instore operations.Comsumers wanted same prices and product available on both platforms We should also note that online shopping st ill account for less than 10% of all retailer services.It's the big box retailers that have been hardest hit by Internet shopping.Fashion stores and other specialty retailers that you often find in malls arena't doing so badly.

They got a negative vibe from 〜嫌な印象を受ける the young punks 不良少年 with beggy pants and chains hanging off their belts who are hanging out たむろする there.I think generation Xers had a big effect on the whole mall scene.In contrast with the boomers,this also generation that was strapped for cash.お金に困っている.Gen Xers help make category killers popular.

Category kiilers?
That's a large store that specializes in particular type of discounted marchandize,and has almost no competition.by shopping so much at category killers.Gen Xers help the retail scene become less diverse.And that undercut弱める the rationale 存在意義for malls.Not to mention how the members of that generation with the first group of comsumers to do a big chunk 部分 of their shopping online.Then the millenials2000年世代 came on the scene.They showed less intrest in the malls.Maybe because their parents had told them they are dangerous to hang around them.
And the great recession was certainly bad news for them too.Add up,all these different factors and it's no wonder malls are going the way of the Dodo絶滅する I see the growing inequality in American society as the contributing factor 要因here.

自分の表現したい音楽が、自分の楽器の中にある。それだけで十分幸せなことじゃないか。

まだ実現出来てないけど‥

私が英語の勉強するのは、自分の言葉で伝えられた方がいいってこともあるけど、単に英語が好きなんですな。  

なかなか言葉が出てこなくて、通訳使った方がいいよと言われたこともあるけど、、やっぱり英語が好き。

でないとこんなディクテーションなんて、やってられません。

I hear that malls have long been at hearts of American way of life especially in the suburbs.Yes, indeed,Malls came into their own 本領を発揮するin the 1950s and 1960s.The countries expanding high way network, connect the surburban homes to futuristic shopping centers,they had a bright clean,modern image.When I was growing up in my hometown in Maryland,our social life cenered on the mall.That was where the stores and movie theaters were.But earlier this year our old hangout行き着けの場所 closed its door for good.What's the story there?どんな事情があるのでしょうか? Why are so many malls dying all over the country?Well one big reason is that shoping habits are chaging.Many people are going for simpler less consumerous life style They are not throwing around so much money 湯水のごとくお金を使うthese days.Plus more and more people are doing their shopping online.The virtual mall is replacing the real thing.The demise 終焉 of the shopping mall reflects some deep changes in American society.Malls were popuplar family destination in the 1970s and 80s.But it was a different story in the 1990s.Women have been mall's best customers.But they started to stay away.

It's hard to believe Black Friday will be upon us すぐにやってくるsoon,
it seems like just yesterday that people were decsending on 押し掛ける retailers to snap up bargains特売品に飛び付く in last year's annual shop till you drop frenzy倒れるまで買い物しようとする騒ぎ Where does the time go?時間がたつのは早いですね。Black Friday,That's the day after Thanks giving,right?Many retailers report their highest sales of the year on that Friday.a veritable sea of black ink.It's followed by Cyber Monday.A day of online buying.And Traditionally marks the beginning of pre-Chrismas shopping season.Black Friday originated in the United States,but it's becoming a major shopping day in the U.K. Canada and Australia,too.There is lots of aggressive,unrestrainde behavior,with people almost literally fight for bargains.I hear some people are protesting against what they see as the rampant見境のないcomsumarism大量消費of Black Friday,.They are turning on its head逆にする calling it Buy nothing day. Their efforts may get a boost from the decline of U.S shopping malls.It's estimated that over the next fifteen years.half of american malls will close.I think that's a real shame.残念な

Did you get the E-mail that the company will start paying the tuition cost if you want to take night classes at City University? We can sign up any class after April 10th.That's a really nice benefit.I'm seriously considering registring for some marketing classes.But how do we signed up?Just call the accounting office.They'll send you the forms to fill out.They have to be completed by March 25th.That's not a problem.I'll call accouting first thing tomorrow.
