Crime in Atlanta, Georgia, while above the national median and a major problem for the city since the middle 20th century, has been declining since the late 1990s. Between 2001 and 2009 the crime rate in Atlanta dropped by 40 percent, according to the FBI. Homicide fell 57 percent. Rape was down 72 percent. Violent crime overall was down 55 percent.
Atlanta’s public safety improvement between 2001 and 2009 occurred at more than twice the rate of the rest of the country. Crime is down across the country, but Atlanta’s improvement has far surpassed the national trend. This relative improvement explains why Atlanta—after ranking in the top five highest crime cities for most of the previous three decades—now ranks 31st. Atlanta has lower crime than Salt Lake City, Orlando and Tacoma, Washington.
At certain points in its history, Atlanta has been known for high crime rates, particularly property crime and homicides. Much of the city's crime, however, is centralized in most of its western neighborhoods and scattered neighborhoods adjacent to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. These include Grove Park, Center Hill, and Bankhead, one of the most crime-infested neighborhoods of Atlanta.
During the 1970s, like with many large cities within the United States, Atlanta's population began to decline. By 1990, the population was 394,017, down almost 20% from its population in 1970, which was 496,973. In addition, the city center and surrounding areas began to go through an urban decay, and crime spiked significantly throughout the 1980s. Along with many other major cities in the United States, Atlanta was hard hit by the crack epidemic of most of the 1980s to early 1990s. In 1994, Atlanta was ranked the most dangerous city in the country by the Morgan Quitno Press.
In 1997, drug-related crime in metro Atlanta increased slightly, in part due to Atlanta becoming an important distribution center for cocaine, and other related drugs imported from Mexico. These increases were mostly seen in Fulton, Gwinnett, DeKalb, Cobb, and Clayton counties. Many law enforcement agencies in the area have joined forces together with the Atlanta Police Department in an effort to decrease the overall crime in metro Atlanta.
In addition, due to large amounts of gentrification and other revitalization projects in the city core, crime continued to fall, even amidst the hard economic times of the late-2000s/early 2010's.
The Miami Boys (a drug organization from Miami, Florida) were the first organized crime group in Atlanta history. They controlled Atlanta's drug trade throughout the 80's to early 90's.
The city is served by the Atlanta Police Department, which has an estimated 1,700 officers working in the force. Atlanta is divided into six police zones.
Atlanta was recently ranked (October 2012) as the sixth most dangerous city in the United States among cities of about more than 200,000 residents. According to Forbes hast the city a violent crime rate of 1,433 per 100,000 and has experienced a violent crime rate rise of six percent in 2011. A reason for that is, amongst others, that Atlanta is lying on major drug trafficking routes and has suffered disproportionally from the financial crisis after 2008. Forbes claims FBI’s "Uniform Crime Reports" database as the source.

The World Trade Center Mexico City is a building complex located in south-central Mexico City, Mexico. Its most famous and recognizable feature is the 52-story, 207 m (670 ft) high Torre , the third tallest building in Mexico City (including antenna), or fourth when measured by its 191 m (587 ft) roof height. When talking about the World Trade Center México, one usually is referring to the uniquely shaped tower. The complex also includes a convention center, cultural center, parking facilities, a multi-screen cinema, a revolving 45th-floor luxury restaurant, and shopping center with Sears as an anchor tenant. It will also include a 22-floor hotel, which is currently under construction. Located on Avenida de los Insurgentes, the complex is served by the Polyforum station of the Metrobús Bus rapid transit system, located a few meters away. The station is named after the Polyforum Cultural Siqueiros, a part of the complex.
The México began its existence as the Hotel de México, a building and complex that never really performed their intended functions.
Construction of the Hotel de México took place in a lot called Parque de La Lama located in Mexico City Napoles neighborhood (Spanish: Colonia Nápoles). The lot was set aside by real estate businessperson José Jerónimo de La Lama in 1947. However, by 1966, when the project was started, the owner and financial sponsor was Manuel Suarez y Suarez.
The Hotel de México project included, a hotel building as well as a cultural center housing the Polyforum Cultural Siqueiros and several other facilities aimed at making the complex a hub for business, culture, tourism, and architecture. Plans for the complex were presented at the 13th international architecture contest in Munich.
Slated to be ready for the 1968 Olympics, the project ran over schedule and over budget and although the main tower was completed in 1972, it never really functioned as a hotel, and, due to political and economical reasons, the tower as well as the rest of the complex were left in an unfinished state, save for the Polyforum.
In the mid 1980s, a project was started to turn the Hotel de México complex into an international business center. Mr. Suárez backed the idea and, although he died in 1988, the remodeling began with partial public funding in 1992. In 1995, the complex, now known as World Trade Center México, opened its doors with the tower now remodeled as an office building, as well as a convention center.

B. C. Forbes, a financial columnist for the Hearst papers, and his partner Walter Drey, the general manager of the Magazine of Wall Street, founded Forbes magazine in 1917. Forbes provided the money and the name and Drey provided the publishing expertise. The original name of the magazine was Forbes: Devoted to Doers and Doings. Drey became vice-president of the B.C. Forbes Publishing Company, while B.C. Forbes became editor-in-chief, a post he held until his death in 1954. B.C. Forbes was assisted in his later years by his two eldest sons, Bruce Charles Forbes (1916–1964) and Malcolm Stevenson Forbes (1917–1990).
Bruce Forbes took over on his father's death, and his strengths lay in streamlining operations and developing marketing. During his tenure, 1954–1964, the magazine's circulation nearly doubled.

Edmiston of AdMedia Partners, 'It’s probably not worth half of that now.'"
In 2013, the magazine claimed in error that the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins, who has a wife and four children, was an "acknowledged homosexual".

Pennsylvania has the twenty-fourth highest per capita income in the United States of America, at $20,880 (2000). Its personal per capita income is $31,998 (2003), the sixteenth highest in the country. Its median household income is $40,106 (2000), ranked twenty-eighth in the country, and its median family income is $49,184 (2000), the twenty-sixth highest in the country. The median value of an owner-occupied housing unit is $97,000 (2000), ranked thirty-fourth in the country.
Many of the top richest places in Pennsylvania are suburbs of Pittsburgh, located in Allegheny County, and the suburbs of Harrisburg, which include Cumberland and Dauphin counties. However, the overall richest area is the Delaware Valley, which is composed of suburban Philadelphia, and is located in a wealth corridor that runs from the suburbs of Washington, DC all the way into southern New Hampshire. In contrast to the Delaware Valley, the wealthy Pittsburgh neighborhoods are more condensed into small locations, while the wealthy Philadelphia communities spread out over four counties (Bucks, Chester, Delaware, and Montgomery) and within the city’s borders.
One notable wealthy area in the Philadelphia area is the Pennsylvania Main Line, which includes Lower Merion, Radnor, and Tredyffrin townships. Some of Pennsylvania’s most affluent neighborhoods and priciest real estate are located in communities located in these townships, including Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd, Gladwyne, Haverford, and Villanova. Chestnut Hill is another wealthy area, however no census data exists for it (except for zip code data), because it is part of Philadelphia. The Northeast wealth corridor also runs through Montgomery County, highest in the area of Whitpain, Lower Gwynedd, Plymouth, Upper Dublin and Whitemarsh townships; and into areas of Bucks County especially the area around New Hope, such as Solebury, Lower Makefield, and Upper Makefield townships.
Outside of the Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Harrisburg metropolitan areas, Pennsylvania is a relatively poorer state, especially in the northern areas and the Appalachian Mountains; only 22% of Pennsylvania places have per capita incomes higher than the national per capita income, and 11.0% of the population lives below the poverty line.
1.9% of Pennsylvania households have annual incomes of $200,000+, and 10.3% have incomes of $100,000 or more. On the contrary, 9.7% have incomes of less than $10,000, and 43.8% less than $34,999.
