Fifth Floor: Highway Off Ramp

Gate Tower Building  is a 16 floor office building in Fukushima-ku, Osaka, Japan. It is notable for the highway off ramp at Umeda Exit that passes through the building.


The building has a double core construction, with a circular cross section. The Umeda Exit of the Ikeda Route of the Hanshin Expressway system (when exiting the highway from the direction of Ikeda) passes between the fifth through seventh floors of this building. The highway is the tenant of those floors. The elevator passes through the floors without stopping, floor 4 being followed by floor 8. The floors through which the highway passes consist of elevators, stairways and machinery. The highway does not make contact with the building. It passes through as a bridge, held up by supports next to the building. The highway is surrounded by a structure to protect the building from noise and vibration. The roof has a helipad.

Trump actually cracked a funny joke and showed a rare tinge of modesty at press conference yesterday

Trump said everyone has skeletons in their closet — except the vice president.

“There are bad reports on everybody in here, most of the people sitting down here — except for Mike Pence, by the way,” he said, to laughter. “And if we find one on him, then I’m … that’s going to be it, that’ll be the greatest shock of all time.”

Trump pointed out he doesn’t drink — and acknowledged that if he did, he would be the “world’s worst”
There have been questions about whether Kavanaugh lied about his drinking while in high school and college. He has said he didn’t drink heavily while he was young, but others who knew him have refuted that claim.

A reporter asked Trump whether he would pull Kavanaugh’s nomination if he lied about his drinking. Trump responded by talking about the fact that he doesn’t drink.

“I don’t think [Kavanaugh lied],” Trump said. “I’m not a drinker. I can honestly say I’ve never had a beer in my life. It’s one of my only good traits. I don’t drink.”

In a brief moment of self-awareness, he acknowledged that alcohol would likely make his already volatile nature worse: “Can you imagine if I had? What a mess I would be? I would be the world’s worst,” he said.

Still has that “Great Wall’ in the back of his mind.

But isn’t he already belligerent and mean-spirited?
