State budget: The German zero.

September 13, 2014 at 1:02 pm

The Bundesbank is one of the harshest critics of excessive public deficits. In its August report, but she has praised German public finances as "currently in comparatively good shape" – a hallmark. Even more: Is situated, the State budget will conclude in this and in the next year – then for the fourth time in succession – with a small surplus. So, the effort of the budgetary discipline policy is bearing fruit. Finance Minister Schäuble (CDU) has shown in his budget speech this week, Which one sums at stake. The policy makes good through 2018, she would have since 2012 EUR 450 billion avoided debt – and thus enormous burdens of interest. The deficit ratio, the ratio of debt to the economy, would be then dropped by once more than 80 percent to 65 percent. Germany almost fulfilled the requirements for the protection of the euro. More importantly: The lower the debt burden, the easier it will, in the coming three decades raise the spending for pensions and care of baby boomers. But, you must know that the small general government plus therefore concluded, because the reserves built up thanks to good employment of social funds exceed the new federal and State loans. A federal State like Germany, but only in the handle Gets the debt, when federal, State and municipal permanently on a strand. It would be nice if the Federal Government for the first time made no new debt in the coming year with the momentum of good economy and extremely low interest rates since 1969. It is crucial that a level not at the expense of the others rehabilitated and loads in the social funds or shadow budgets by shifting to beautiful figures. There lies the rub. So a horse-trading to control shares and old debts looming, which A few countries were excising like in a Fund. The citizens must adapt to open or disguised tax increases. By saving, no one talks about. Even shifts from the bloated social budget (Federal) and personal budgets (countries) in favour of more investments in infrastructure are frowned upon. Each intervention goes to the nitty-gritty: the Federal Government would have to shorten its tributaries in the social funds, dismantle the countries even more staff. You can’t, without tasks to reconsider. .

The wandering of the Donbass Ukrainian: flee or go home?

September 13, 2014 at 8:55 am

Some go home, others flee: thousands of Ukrainians crossing every day at the border post of Izvarine, one of the main points of passage between the Russia and the separatist region of Lugansk, affected by the fighting in recent months. On the Ukrainian side, or rather, the people’s Republic of Lugansk (NRL), as is renamed to spring this secessionist territory in war with the central Government in Kiev, a long line of cars of several hundred metres patient along the bad road leading to the dam. Sacha is sitting at the wheel of one of them. He will find his family in Russia for some time. I’m leaving because of the bombing. The (Army) Ukrainian killed peaceful civilians and everyone fled, he said, explaining that half of his village was destroyed. He has already decided that his family would remain in Russia at the moment. Olga, who has just spent two months in Russia with her husband, her two children, her mother and her cat, goes in the opposite direction. We have heard about the ceasefire (signed the week last between the separatists and the Government Ukrainian and globally respected, Editor’s note) and that’s why we decided to come back, she says. The people we know have already returned, we are the last. Is she not afraid future clogged in a country, the NRL, which was unlikely to be a day recognized by the international community? If, of course, but what can we do?, she sighs. We hope that this will be better and calmer, we can work and that children will go to school. If this empire, perhaps return we in Russia, she added however. Even courses for Valentina Gorbova. We return to the House, but we have nowhere to go because our two houses were burned, and our son’s apartment, she said. Remain in Russia, where they arrived late August is financially untenable, she said: our wages are low and we have not received our pensions for three months. Some 7. 000 to 8. 000 people currently daily cross the border at Izvarine, according to Konstantin Samsonov, Deputy Head of the border post. The post has seen up to 10. 000 people per day at the height of the bombing in June-July, whose tired buildings yet still wear traces. -’ Tired of running’ – if the ceasefire has decided many refugees to return, it is not the only factor, according to the guard. People are tired of running from one place to another, they return home, he said, referring to dozens of passengers loaded suitcases arriving on foot from the Russian side. At the present time, there are fewer people coming out (to Russia) and more people who arrive on the territory of + Novorossia + (new Russia, term used by Russian president Vladimir Poutine for several regions in the East and South of the Ukraine), explains, Khaki Cap screwed on the head. Visitors arriving from Russia are greeted by the red and blue of the Novorossia and flag tricolor of the NRL. The flags of the Ukraine, whose regime is called a fascist by the separatists, have been removed. According to recent figures from the Office of the United Nations for refugees, the conflict in Ukraine, concentrated in the eastern regions of Donetsk and Lugansk, has forced more than half a million people to flee their homes, including 260. 000 are displaced within the Ukraine and all refugees in Russia. Cars continue to slowly scroll to the position. But what about the rumor that said Thursday that a column of dozens of tanks and Russian armoured vehicles would also crossed the border at Izvarine? A lie!, says Konstantin Samsonov. Who elects to in joking: we have a good laugh with our Russian colleagues to ask them how they are there were taken to move such a column without that we could see!

Deficit: is the France isolated in Europe?

Villepin, Mélenchon against the participation of Paris in the coalition against the Islamic State.

September 12, 2014 at 3:29 pm

On RMC, former Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin, symbol of the opposition easy French intervention in Iraq from 2003, has considered absurd and dangerous decision U.S. to intervene militarily am. It is high time that countries Western-l’Europe, the United States – take the ons of the experience. Describing the Islamic State of monstrous child of inconstancy and the arrogance of Western policy, former diplomat believes that to intervene, is to take the risk to crystallize, combine a number of forces once more against us. We are the Islamic State the service they expect. We give them a status, we facilitate considered significantly the recruitment. Jean-Luc M lenchon, said it aussivendredi on RTL d object completely the perspective of keystrokes. Fran ois Holland is not the monarchical power to decide alone of war and peace. It was one of the main pr prerogatives than our public R, his birth, wanted to assume: that war and peace are d cid es by the Parliament. O and when was voqu the fact that should intervene in Iraq, bomb once more as was d j done in Libya with the success who is remembered, or be distributed to the other weapons that eventually turn against us?, did he use. And former candidate of the left Front of pr advocate eliminating liked t of is int interest those who finance them and should take the responsibility to cease to do so, it is –say the Saudi, Qatari, with which we have relations of a d licious courtesy and monarchies which we sell mast riel of weapons that do nothing since they are not able them-m my to participate in the maintenance of the Government order. A F te of Huma La Courneuve, the secr Secretary national Communist Party (PCF), Pierre Laurent, was also opposite the intervention. The France must regain a voice ind pending face NATO and the United States. We cannot engage in a coalition e men by the country which has caused chaos in Iraq, he lanc, a finding on the spot a journalist from L’Express. A bit more t t, on France Info, he had estimated it needed obviously acting against the Islamic State in Iraq but not with a coalition e led by U.S. Am. It is not those who made war in Libya (.) . . ) and who opened the door to the development of these groups d s arm which will effectively lead this fight. Would have had to create a coalition under the auspices of the United Nations. It is necessary that this intervention is in agreement with the competent Syrian s and e box by it. Is empty because otherwise, we work against the suzerainty and against States and it would then commit the m me error than in Libya, it is –say create a vacuum of power in favour of the Islamist chaos and benefit of ethnic militias. Furthermore, it considers the first thing to do is to tackle the t te and t te, as we know, these are countries like the Qatar. We cannot continue having economic, tax treaty advantageous for a country like Qatar, let it intervene in our business while we know that it is this particular country that helps, finance, assist Islamist fundamentalism in the world. � .

Alex R saw this idea a sign of weakness: "he does not want to collect the right, he wants above all more likely to be elected in 2017". ‘Even before to be back, he already knows that he will not pass’, adds Christiane T. For kracounet, the former head of State is lost: "after having dredged to the far right, a few years ago, here it is makes the elbow to the centre-right.

First, is the leading expert James Bond’s Italian, on which wrote 7 books-the last one, "on her Majesty’s service (Yellow Latin editions), was released on September 26, edited the official journal and is often consulted by productions for film locations. In addition, she converted the family business, the hotel Admiral in Fairgrounds, in a hotel in theme. Operation that made investing 20 rooms inspired by British spy: divided into two categories, the «golden» (all gold) and «diamonds» (with cascades of crystals like diamonds). And transforming the environment (inspired by the British Navy and that invokes the Interior of a ship) in a place where everything speaks about Bond. From the walls, dominated by original film posters, furniture with objects from Museum of 007 scattered throughout the hotel. A huge collection (over 6 thousand pieces), began as a child, with a model of a car driven by Ian Fleming’s hero, broken by chance and that has prompted thousands of adventures to be rebuilt: my number 1, "says Edward. Seeded by a collection that includes photos with the cast of the film (almost everyone interviewed over the years by Coffrini Dell’Orto: Giannini, Craig, Connery, Ursula Andress and most beautiful Bond girl). Bring her love of 007 in the hotel it was natural. Detail that one understands as well as the rooms and the furniture, also from the hotel bar. One of the very few to boasting the title of "Bond Point ‘ in Italy: a small local circuit where you can sip a drink of 007, according to the original recipe of the films. Here at Admiral, for example, drink the Bond’s vodka Martini (shaken, not stirred and composed of 2 parts of Dry martinis and vodka 8) but also the Vesper of ‘ Casino Royale ‘ (where Coffrini Dell’Orto is also featured), the Stinger, the Sazerac, the Pink Gin and those upon request as the Bullshot, made with chicken broth. The hotel is also home to the Admiral Club 007, the first and only in Italy dedicated to James Bond and that counts more than 350 members (including several women). "We founded in 99," says Edward, «me and Andrea Carlo Cappi», official translator and writer of Bond. «All cards», explains, "beginning with 00, aside from our two that are both 007». The rich bondiano universe is beloved by celebrities who are smiling in the pictures on the walls of the hotel, in the company of Coffrini Dell’Orto: from Helium to Alberto Tomba, until recently deceased Faletti and Alex Del Piero (the player has even exchanged a shirt for the club to 007). Or, Andrea g. Pinketts, Zelig comedians, just to name a few. Often, "says Edward, ‘ come to theme nights (share-Oct) to collect funds in favor of Medicinema».

Cinema: Pride, when gays and minors do alliance.

September 12, 2014 at 11:19 am

Pride, in theaters Wednesday, out of oblivion an incongruous episode of British social history under the era Thatcher: the alliance of miners on strike and gay movements in the early 1980s. It is a story to inspire young people who are today more disillusioned than ever towards political, told AFP the British Director Matthew Warchus, at the last Cannes film festival where the film was presented at the Quinzaine des Réalisateurs. His film with a budget of eight million pounds (10 M EUR) received in Cannes the Queer Palm 2014, reward out of official competition which distinguishes a film dealing with the better questions homosexual, bisexual, or transgender. Pride begins in summer 1984. It has been four months that minors in the country are on strike. A small group of gay rights activists decided to help them by launching fundraisers. Minors are like us, jostled by police, the Government and tabloid newspapers, says Mark, one of them, in the film. Events in nightclubs, the small band made the quest to rescue the families of strikers in distress with infallible arguments. Without the miners who generate electricity, you could not dance on + Bananarama +. But now, once collected money, lesbians and gays supporting minors (LGSM) are unable to distribute it. Trade unions they hang up the nose and find their support a bit embarrassing. Mind, our the LGSM group randomly chooses a mining village of Wales and share minibus distribute the hoard collected to the inhabitants. -Remote cousin of Billy Elliot – on-site, it’s the clash between the two communities who will have to learn to get to know and feel, a path of adventures all more funny than the other. Stephen Beresford wrote the screenplay from these events that actually occurred. I had heard about and I had done some research on Google but it is by reading testimonials on gay activism that the story took shape, he explained at Cannes. I interviewed people at the time. They thought that this story was going to die with them. The plot is decidedly upbeat and shows, is true he says, miners marching finally at the top of the London Gay Pride. It is true, admits scriptwriter, many things did reverse today, like the laws antigays in Africa or Russia, but at the same time gay marriage comes to be legalised in Britain. Things evolve, says the Director of 47 years, which is the second film because he led especially career in theater in London and Broadway. Pride was designed as a mainstream film. Five or ten years ago, this would not have been possible, he said. Matthew Warchus sees in his film a remote cousin of Billy Elliot, the film shot in 2000 by Stephen Daldry, showing him also of the minors strike era Thatcher, a world in which a young boy dance-loving must find its place. Policy a very bad reputation today among young people, insists. The movie shows that it means wanting to change things. In his film, an another political battle already looms for friends of the LGSM, the struggle against AIDS. .
