Greeces creditors approve debtrelief package

first_imgATHENS, Greece — A eurozone bailout fund has approved the implementation of a major debt relief plan for Greece that it says would provide the crisis-scarred country significant savings over several decades.The measures include interest rate improvements and repayment deferrals that were initially agreed upon in June. Meeting in Luxembourg on Thursday, the board of the bailout fund, the European Financial Stability Facility, activated the program after determining that Greece had met a list of conditions.Greece ended its third international bailout in August but remains under tight supervision by European Union institutions to continue administrative reforms and cost-cutting measures despite high levels of poverty and unemployment.The decision was taken a day after a European Commission report said Greece was complying with its post-bailout commitments.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Yeah The Blackhawks Are A Dynasty

The Chicago Blackhawks will take the ice tonight for the chance to win their third Stanley Cup in six seasons. For NHL fans whose memories stretch back to the 1970s and 1980s, such a feat might not seem all that impressive. The NHL was once extremely friendly to dynasties: The Montreal Canadiens won four consecutive Stanley Cups from 1976 to 1979, the New York Islanders did so from 1980 to 1983 and then the Edmonton Oilers won five Stanley Cups in seven seasons from 1984 through 1990.But this isn’t the same league: No team has won back-to-back Stanley Cups since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998. And cases like the Blackhawks’ — where teams win championships separated by a couple of seasons, as they did in 2010 and 2013, or as the Los Angeles Kings did in 2012 and 2014 — are fairly rare, too.In the series of charts below, I’ve tracked the share of NHL, NBA, NFL and MLB champions who were repeat winners, along with the share who had won at least one title in any of the three previous seasons.1For instance, the 2014 champion would qualify by having won the championship in 2011, 2012 or 2013. These trends can also ebb and flow over time. After the Boston Celtics won 11 championships in 13 seasons from 1957 through 1969, the NBA then went 19 seasons without a repeat champion until the Los Angeles Lakers did it in 1987 and 1988. Since this data can be a bit noisy, I’ve stretched it over a fairly long time frame, showing trailing 20-year windows for each sport.Over its past 20 seasons, the NHL has the lowest share of repeat winners among the major sports leagues — the Red Wings in 1997 and 1998 were the only one — along with the lowest share of teams to repeat within a three-season window (four out of the past 20 Stanley Cup champions did so). By contrast, before about 1990, it was probably the easiest sport for repeat winners. From 1971 to 1990, for instance, 45 percent of Stanley Cup winners had also won the championship in the previous season, and 75 percent had won a Stanley Cup within the previous three years.The reasons for this are obvious enough: The NHL has expanded rapidly, from six teams in 1966-67 to 30 teams today. It implemented a hard and unforgiving salary cap in 2004-05. And it’s a fairly random sport: Compared with something like basketball, the best team won’t necessarily prevail, even over a seven-game series.Still, the differences are striking. Given the difficulties of keeping a team together in the modern NHL, winning three championships within six years, as the Blackhawks will do if they can finish off Tampa Bay, would perhaps be no less impressive a feat than what the Islanders did by winning four in a row, for example. And they’ll have done it with largely the same group of talent. Nine of the Blackhawks’ top 10 players by point shares this season, including Duncan Keith, Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews, were also members of the franchise in 20102Although goalie Corey Crawford spent most of the 2009-10 season in the minor leagues and played just one regular-season game for the Blackhawks; the only exception is left wing Brandon Saad, who had not yet been drafted. UPDATE (June 16, 11:13 a.m.): The Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup on Monday night, confirming their status as a modern dynasty. read more

Joan Burton says she has the passion needed to be the next

first_imgThere are thousands of people who can say the same thing and it has led us to make a mistake in thinking that the extension of educational opportunity would bring an end to class divisions.She said that in a “perverse way” society has reached a situation where even the modest successes achieved “are used against us by those who claim that success is open to all in modern society, that poverty is a personal failure rather than a social failure, that wealth and success is the deserved outcome of intelligence”.Poverty She said this view of the world only perpetrates the myth that “poverty means you are inadequate, while wealth means you are admirable and increasing wealth should command even more admiration”.Burton said that it is this divided society that allows the rich become indifferent to the public services that promote opportunity.“They don’t want to contribute to public education, medical care or public amenities simply because they can buy all these things privately for themselves and in many instances are encouraged by the tax code to do exactly that,” she said.She said that unemployment, jobs and inequality are closely linked.It is her ambition as Labour’s new leader to establish a Low Pay Commission where evidence-based recommendations could be made to government on matters such as the appropriate level of minimum wage as well as issues such as the “abomination known as zero-hour contracts”.She urged the Labour Party members to vote for her as their next leader.Read: Alex White says it’s time to tell the IMF that ‘enough is enough’> TACKLING INEQUALITY WAS one of Joan Burton’s main messages at the Labour Party leadership hustings in Portlaoise today.Rich and poorHighlighting a point made by Thomas Piketty in his book, ‘Captial in the 21st Century’, about the destructive nature of the widening gap between rich and poor, she said there is a need to wage a war on inequality.Burton said she was fortunate to go to university, being the first from her inner-city convent school to do so, however, she added:last_img read more

Carer who stole €9000 from elderly man given suspended sentence and ordered

first_img A HOME CARER who stole around €9,000 from an elderly man has received a suspended sentence on condition she repay the money.Mother-of-two Angela Walsh (44) was working as a home help assistance for Thomas Armstrong for a number of years before she began stealing from him.She told gardaí that she stole the money because she needed to pay off a drug debt built up by one of her daughters.She admitted the wrong doing and told gardaí she knew it was wrong and was sorry.Since the offending came to light she has lost her job with the home care service.Walsh of Ferrycarrig Park, Coolock, Dublin pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal court to three counts of stealing cash from Armstrong at Bank of Ireland, Coolock Village on dates between 20 October 2016 and March 2017.The court heard that she had taken the bank card from his wallet and that the security PIN was written on a piece of paper beside the bank card.None of the cash has been reimbursed by the bank.Kevin McCrave BL, defending, told the court that his client’s husband had died in 2016. He said Walsh had attended the victim for a number of years and there was a good relationship between them.He said she has no prospects of ever working as a carer again and now works as a cleaner of Air B&B lettings for €120 a week.Counsel said Walsh was trying to clear a drug debt and was under duress at the time.Judge Martin Nolan imposed a two and half-year sentence which he suspended in full.He said that restitution was important to the victim and noted that Walsh had brought €5,000 to court for her victim. He ordered her to repay the balance of €4,000 within six months.

Inondations en Australie après le nordest le sud est touché

first_imgInondations en Australie : après le nord-est, le sud est touchéLes habitants des petites villes du sud de l’Australie empilent des sacs de sable depuis quelques jours pour tenter de se protéger des flots. Pendant ce temps, le nord-est, qui a connu son pic d’inondation jeudi, compte ses morts. Les secours continuent de chercher des corps sous les eaux.Les fortes précipitations, qui ont engendré les pires inondations depuis 40 ans, continuent d’affecter l’Australie. Après le nord-est (Queensland), c’est aujourd’hui l’Etat de Victoria, dans le sud du pays, qui est menacé par les flots. La ville de Horsham (à 330 kilomètres au nord-ouest de Melbourne, capitale de cet Etat), pourrait être la plus touchée par cette montée des eaux, rapporte Romandie.com. Une quarantaine de villages ont déjà été fortement endommagés par ces inondations. La rivière Wimmera, qui coupe la ville en deux, devrait atteindre son niveau le plus haut aujourd’hui ou demain.Si le pic est passé depuis jeudi dernier dans l’Etat du Queensland, les secours continuent de fouiller dans les décombres pour retrouver des corps, disparus. Le dernier bilan fait état de 31 décès depuis le début de ces inondations qualifiées de “bibliques” par les autorités australiennes. Le Trésorier du gouvernement, Wayne Swan, a déclaré qu’il était encore trop tôt pour donner une estimation des dégâts, mais selon lui “il semble possible que cela soit, en termes économiques, la catastrophe naturelle la plus importante de notre histoire”.Découvrez les photos aériennes avant/après la catastrophe sur Maxisciences.Le 17 janvier 2011 à 12:23 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

YPM Launches TheOneMinutesJR Film on Child Rights

first_imgBy Rohey JadamaYoung People in the Media (YPM), in collaboration with the United Nation Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and Department of Information Services, on 12 August, 2015 launched the ‘theoneminutesjr’ film on child rights issues at Baobab Holiday Resort in Bijilo.The oneminutesjr 60 seconds films were developed as part of last year’s national commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. The films provides children and adolescent between the ages of 12-20 years, especially those who are the most underprivileged and marginalise, the opportunity to make their voices heard through short and powerful videos that focuses on child rights and issues of concern.Eric Samuel, President of YPM, said children and young people are often side lined especially when it comes to decision  making on issues affecting them directly or indirectly. He added that they ignore the fact that though invisible, though side lined, they are still at the forefront and most importantly, they are necessary for almost all family, national and international development.“This is why a year ago, twenty people, met at Mansakonko in Lower River Region to make their voices heard and share their stories in 60 seconds videos in which they devoted a lot of energy and commitment. It was not easy to write the scripts, act, direct and film these videos all of which were done by these young people’”, said the YPM’s President.Speaking on behalf of the UNICEF Representative, Sally Sadie Singhateh, the Communication Specialist at UNICEF, said over the past decades, the children’s Act as well as the UN Convention and other international instruments have helped many children and young people in the Gambia to enjoy their rights.She said more children go to school because education is free for all with more opportunities  for girls, they have access to free health care services and are protected from diseases such as measles  and polio through routine immunisation, amongst others.The UNICEF Communication Specialist said however, statistics shows that there are other children and young people in the Gambia who are very poor and do not have the chance to go to school, those who are often sick with preventable diseases, some are abused, exploited and some with disabilities.“Some girls are still at risk of circumcision, child marriages and domestic and sexual violence while many are not allowed to go to school.  The oneminutesjr videos  are one way of giving voice to adolescent, especially vulnerable children on issues that affects their well-being and development and thus provide them with the opportunity for them to participate in advocacy efforts to promote their rights”, she said.She stated that children and adolescent will be leading their nations and will be making life- changing decisions that will affect their countries and people. She continued, “that is the reason why UNICEF is investing in the empowerment of children and adolescent so that they can effectively assume their responsibilities as adults in the future”.She  said UNICEF will continue to work with the government of the Gambia in providing adolescents the necessary support to ensure that all pertinent issues related to rights and equity are prominent in national and public dialogues.]]>last_img read more

Monday Update Swan Lake Fire Continues To See No Growth Due To

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Original Post 10:00amThe Swan Lake Fire remains at 162,179 acres and 29% containment. Only a trace of rain was reported overnight on the fire. There’s a better chance of scattered rain overnight into to Tuesday. Expect to see some smoke and fire activity on the southern end of the fire.Winds are gusty Sunday along the Sterling Highway and are predicted to continue blowing through Monday. In many areas adjacent to the highway, the fire burned very hot resulting in trees weakened by fire damage. Due to the winds, trees continue to fall in and along the road creating hazardous driving conditions. Cooper Landing remains in a SET evacuation status. The READY evacuation status for affected Sterling neighborhoods remains in effect. The pilot car escorts will remain in place until the wind event stops even though fire activity is low at the moment. If you travel on the highway, please use caution and observe the direction of the pilot car drivers. Conditions are still dynamic and can change quickly.Although there have been some areas with gusty winds, no major issues were reported on Sunday across the Swan Lake Fire area because of the wind. Firefighters remain engaged on both the west side near Sterling and Kenai Keys, and on the east side near Cooper Landing. Scooper planes have been unable to work today because swells on Kenai Lake are too large for the planes to dip there. The cooler, moister conditions noticeably moderated fire behavior Sunday. Open flames near the fire perimeter were observed in only a few isolated locations.  Wetter fuels reduced the effort necessary to achieve work objectives Operations throughout Mondy will be very similar to those of the past several days.last_img read more

Watch Dogs on Wii U is closer to current gen than next

first_imgReleasing a new games console a year earlier than the competition may give you an initial sales advantage, but when the competing hardware does arrive on the market the release-first advantage suddenly disappears. In the case of the Wii U, next month Nintendo will be facing down two much more powerful consoles in the form of the PS4 and Xbox One.Proof of how this could impact sales comes via Ubisoft and their forthcoming game Watch Dogs. The game is releasing on current gen and next gen machines, but the Wii U is a bit of an anomaly, so where does it sit in terms of quality? Is it more comparable next gen or current gen versions?CVG conducted an interview with Jonathan Morin, creative director at Ubisoft Montreal and asked him that question. His answer isn’t exactly definitive, but he stated that overall the game is closer to current gen, but “it’s a beautiful game” on Nintendo’s platform.This is important for Wii U owners because it suggests that as we move forward Nintendo’s hardware isn’t going to be able to keep pace with the games that can be produced for the PS4 and Xbox One. This is a launch game on those systems after all, and developers have had a year to squeeze performance out of the Wii U, yet it’s producing games closer to current gen still. That gap is only going to get bigger in the coming years.Publishers and developers have been ignoring the Wii U mainly because it isn’t selling very well. However, the reason is surely going to change soon to dismissing it because it simply can’t cope with the games being produced for the other consoles. And that is yet another reason why Nintendo needs to keep pumping out first-party games on a regular basis. Even so, I think 2014 may be an even tougher year for the Wii U than 2013 has already been.last_img read more

first_imgCypriot taxpayers are still not done with the state-owned Cooperative Bank and may be asked to cover future contingent liabilities of unspecified value, experts say.“I am not sure whether we are done with those €4bn, there may be a need for more money,” said economist Marios Clerides, who served as the Co-op’s top executive until mid-2015.He was referring to the €2.35bn government bond issued a month ago and the capital injections of almost €1.7bn that preceded it in 2014 and 2015.The latest bond issue aimed at allaying concerns over the lender’s future amid fears of the need of additional provisions that would cause a capital shortfall.Clerides said additional support may be required depending on the outcome of the negotiations initiated by the Co-op to sell its assets, which already attracted interest from three potential buyers, Hellenic Bank, Cyprus’s third largest lender, and two US funds.“The buyers are likely to press for a lower price for the assets they will acquire in order to achieve a higher return,” he explained, adding that possible layoffs of unneeded staff could also prompt the government to offer compensation to affected workers at the lender, in which the government has a stake exceeding 99 per cent.On Friday, Finance Minister Harris Georgiades signalled that the government was ready to jump in and support affected staff.“The state has the capacity and willingness one way or another to offer security to workers,” the minister said after a meeting with Andreas Matsas, the head of SEK, one of the two largest unions in the private sector, according to the Cyprus News Agency. “We are in anticipation of investor interest and therefore there’s nothing concrete to be said”.The government has acted in a similar fashion already in the past with companies that went out of business, such as in the case of Cyprus Airways or its subsidiary Eurocypria.Moody’s Investors Service, which downgraded the Co-op’s baseline credit assessment from a “caa2” to “ca” last month, just days after the lender announced its intention to seek investors, did not rule out further taxpayer’s money flowing into the bank.“The potential piecemeal sale of Cyprus Cooperative Bank reflects its solvency challenges and our view is that the bank has a provision shortfall which will have to be filled either through a capital increase, with funds coming from private investors or the government, or through the sale of the bank’s assets and liabilities,” said Moody’s analyst Melina Skouridou in an interview.The bank which in exchange for the issued bonds received a €2.5bn liquidity injection from the government in the form of a deposit backed by collateral worth €7.6bn comprising mainly of non-performing loans, made slow progress towards reducing its delinquent loans in the years following the crisis.This was partly because of the foreclosure and insolvency legislation, which was rendered toothless by lawmakers.Former Hellenic Bank executive Yiannis Telonis said that the liquidity injection from the government showed that the problems the bank was facing “were deeper than assumed”.“The bank did not have clear targets,” he said. “It was initially aiming at a listing at the Cyprus Stock Exchange, then they were talking about donating stock to its customers and later switched to a listing in Ireland,” Telonis said.“The buyout is not going to be an easy undertaking, but it has to be successful otherwise we are heading towards adventures,” he added without specifying.The Co-op has given an extension of the deadline for the buyers to submit binding offers until mid-May.You May LikeDirect HealthyAt 62, Steve Harvey Drives This Kind Of CarDirect HealthyUndoHistory A2ZWhere You Should Retire in the USA: States Ranked From Worst To BestHistory A2ZUndoIcePopMan Flies His Drone Over A Strange Giant Hole And It Captures ThisIcePopUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’UndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Cyprus Environmental Movement calls for measures to protect turtles

first_imgThe Cyprus Environmental Movement on Sunday condemned the community leader of Argaka and other officials of the region for getting involved in the work of a group of experts on the beach to protect nesting turtles.On Friday it was revealed that the previous day the community leader of Argaka has interrupted the fisheries department and overseas officials from putting protective covers over turtles nests on the beach.Community leader Spyros Pelopidas, along with several Argaka residents, verbally attacked the experts on the basis that there were fewer sea turtles than the group was accommodating for, and claimed that more cages were being placed so that they could collect higher sums from the fisheries departmentThe movement also hit out at the police for taking the side of the community leader and asking the experts to stop what they were doing and move away from the beach.The incident “irreparably exposed” Cyprus since it took place in the presence of a representative of the Council of Europe and a group of foreign experts in Cyprus to attend a training programme for the protection of sea turtles implemented in Cyprus in cooperation with the Council of Europe, the movement said.“We call on the government to take the necessary measures for the continuation of the programme to protect turtles and to ensure safe working conditions for those taking part.
