#MeToo – Breaking News

I prepared for today a post of the twin-architecture of the Encore Hotel and Wynn Hotel next to each other at the Las Vegas Boulevard.
I prepared a text about the difference of the almost identic facades. But the Encore with a convex curved façade and the Wynn with a concave curved façade if you looked at the building from the Strip. But Breaking New about Mr. Steve Wynn, owner of the hotels, forced me to change the note.

This news was announced today by The Wall Street Journal:

“Vegas Mogul Steve Wynn Accused of Sexual Misconduct
Wynn Resorts employees and others interviewed by The Wall Street Journal described a CEO who sexualized his workplace and pressured workers to perform sex acts. Steve Wynn responded: “The idea that I ever assaulted any woman is preposterous.”

Board members of Wynn Resorts Ltd. said they have formed a special committee to investigate sexual misconduct allegations involving Chairman and Chief Executive Steve Wynn, who was the subject of a Wall Street Journal investigation published Friday morning.”

Mr. Steve Wynn is undoubtfully not the only one who could be accused of sexual harassment in Las Vegas.

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
