    Centennial, aka Central Home of The original 362 Deuce Gang -(D.O.C)- and the original 1323 Manitoba Warriors Centennial is an inner-city neighbourhood in Winnipeg, Manitoba bordered by four primary streets: Princess Street to the east, William Avenue to the south, Sherbrook Street to the west and Logan Avenue to the north. Vacant and/or derelict residential and non-residential buildings are visible within the area. The neighbourhood has a younger than average population, with nearly 36% of all residents under the age of 20 years. Cenennial has a very significant Aboriginal population (49.5%), with the majority being of Ojibway descent. Of the remainder of the population, 25.2% are characterized as being visible minorities – primarily Filipino, Chinese and South East Asian. This neighbourhood has the doobiest distinction as having one of the highest unemployment rates in the city. As a result of the limited incomes of residents, the prolification of narcotics are seen as an alternative to starvation and or eviction for many Central residence. The area is still home to the Manitoba Warriors and the Central Gang, who police claim has been active in the area for many years. Although the official name of this neighbourhood is "Centennial", it is referred to as "Central" by local youths.

    The Central are a known multi-cultural criminal organization based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Also known as "CTL", the Central Gang was formed in 2002 by former high ranked members of the now defunct Deuce Gang. This gang's membership consist of wayward teens and young adults from an array of different cultural backgrounds including Natives, Metis, Afro Canadians, Caucasians as well as East and South Asians. The Central's roots was implanted when the original Deuce Gang was disbanded after a well known member was shot in Winnipeg's West End in 2001. After the incident, other high ranking members of the Deuce Gang began collaborating with members of another Central gang called the "Central Boys" and joined forces to form the group simply known as Central, named after the area where both gangs originated. Combining the two gangs was in direct defiance of the Indian Posse, who both the Deuce Gang and Central Boys had a long standing feud with. Police and justice sources say that violent hostilities between the Central gang and other criminal organizations such as the Indian Posse, Most Organized Brothers, Native Syndicate and Zig Zag Crew have resulted in violent confrontation over control of turf for the weapon and drug trade. However, members of the Central gang have been linked with the formidable Manitoba Warriors (although the two have feuded in the past before) and are known to be friendly towards the Loyalty Honour Silence gang.

    The BOJ might have tried to do something by opting for negative rates, but in reality the initiative belongs elsewhere. Dollar/yen is dictated by global risk sentiment, which also decides the trend in the currency market as a whole, the BOJ can only do so much. The markets see through the fact that the central bank's efforts would not be effective in the absence of domestic demand, which is up to the government to create through its policies.
