Parliament probes economy for answers

first_imgThe Papandreou government proposal to set up of a Parliamentary fact-finding committee into the economy was approved last week despite the strong opposition from main Opposition party, New Democracy. PASOK maintains that there are clear indications of political intervention in the fiscal data that was publically released for 2007-2009 and on when that data was released. The main opposition New Democracy party spoke of political expediency last week and called for the terms of reference to be backdated to 1981. In the meantime, LAOS president G. Karatzaferis said that his party would not participate in the fact-finding. The government rejects the the accusation that the fact-finding committee is an act of revenge and insist that Greek people must learn the truth.“We owe a response to Greek people and European partners on what has exactly happened and who is responsible for the situation”, said government spokesman, George Petalotis.“We have not covered up, nor hidden anything; we tell the truth and request the truth.”The PASOK spokesperson labeled the proposal “serious, moderate and in no way divisive and vengeful” and called for all political parties to agree to the inquiry in an effort to restore Greece’s credibility. The government spokesman did not rule out calling on former Monetary Affairs Commissioner, Joaquin Almunia, to Inquiry Committee hearings, underlining that such move is legal and workable.New Democracy party spokesman, Panos Panagiotopoulos said the government’s proposal to restrict the investigation to the period 2004-2009 period was designed to attack New Democracy and would represent an act of “political expediency and partisan bigotry”. LAOS president G. Karatzaferis announced that his party would not participate in the Committee, describing its setting up as being futile since the case has been referred to the public prosecutor.He said that LAOS will not contribute in the two large parties efforts to completely downbase the country’s political history in the last years.Alexis Tsipras president of SYRIZA Parliamentary Group spoke of the fact-finding committee being a ‘cheap communication game.’ Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Longterm unemployment soars

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram More than six out of every 10 jobless people in Greece have been out of work for over a year, according to Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) data published. Fourth-quarter figures for 2012 put the unemployment rate at 26 per cent, from 24.8 per cent in the previous quarter and 20.7 per cent a year earlier. The jobless number reached 1,295,535, with 65.3 per cent having been without work for more than 12 months. Still, the reduction in employment amounted to less than 1.5 per cent compared with the previous quarter and 6.4 per cent compared with the October-December period in 2011. The jobless rate is even higher among foreign nationals in Greece, amounting to 36.9 per cent, even though the rate of financially active foreigners is considerably higher than that of Greeks. Rates remain particularly high among people aged up to 24 years (57.8 per cent) and in the most productive age group, 29-44 (32.2 per cent). Women are the hardest hit, with 29.7 per cent being out of work. The tertiary or service sector remains the most important employment pillar, accounting for 70.5 per cent of jobs. The secondary sector, concerning manufacturing, takes a 16.3 per cent share, while the primary sector has no more than 13.2 per cent of jobs in Greece, or just over one in eight, ELSTAT data showed.last_img read more

Riverdale Season 3 Episode 8 Recap Someone Read Watchmen

first_img ‘Riverdale’ Season 4 Trailer Toasts to a Mysterious Senior YearSDCC 2019: ‘Riverdale’ Cast Spills Details on Core ‘Mystery’ for Season 4 Stay on target Riverdale is back to… whatever passes for normal after last week’s three-chapter split episode. We once again begin the show with Jughead’s narration telling us what a normal day everyone’s having. That should immediately tell you that things are about to go very wrong in this midseason finale. It certainly leads with a disturbing image. Cheryl walks through the halls to discover that all the River Vixens, Veronica and Toni included, are all suffering a mass seizure. It’s about time we get some answers as to what’s causing these.Veronica’s parents are convinced it’s all because of stress. At least, that’s the explanation they’re giving. She’s pretty sure they have an ulterior motive. To be fair, she’s probably right. The first thing they think to do is ship her off to New York where she’ll be under the care of doctors on their payroll. That doesn’t seem suspicious at all coming from the people who conspired to frame her boyfriend and get him killed in prison. Veronica suspects they’re planning something big. Something they don’t want her around for. Reggie mentions that her father is pulling Jingle Jangle off the market (“It’s so last year.” Ha!), and replacing it with Fizzle Rocks. He even has a new gang distributing them: The Gargoyles. Veronica decides she’ll get to the bottom of her parents’ plans and what they have to do with G&G.Camila Mendes as Veronica and Madelaine Petsch as Cheryl (Photo Credit: Dean Buscher/The CW)Something strange is happening at the school, though. Hiram is using the mass seizure as cover to shut the whole school down. Veronica confronts her father at the school board meeting where it’s about to go down. This has been the most frustrating part of Riverdale this season. We know Veronica is smarter than this. Or at least she should be. She’s able to figure out nearly every step of her father’s plan, but she never figures out how to deal with it. All she can do is call him out in public, and she’s constantly caught off guard when he has a convenient answer for all her points. At least ones that satisfy all the adults in the room. Like, Veronica’s been through this countless times and she still thinks she can defeat her father by yelling the truth at him? She should have learned long ago that doesn’t work on him. At this point, watching her go through these motions again and again is just annoying. It’s not even close to fun anymore.What’s much more fun is watching her and Betty’s work come together. Betty spends the episode doing some sleuthing of her own. Last week’s episode ended with Betty coming face to face with the Gargoyle King inside the convent. At this point, we should expect all of Riverdale’s shock endings to be elaborate fakeouts until they prove themselves otherwise. As Betty reveals to Ethel, there is no Gargoyle King in the basement. Betty makes Ethel jealous by talking about how the Gargoyle King spoke with her. She lures Ethel down to the basement and locks her up long enough for the Fizzle Rocks to wear off. The sisters, Betty figures out, have been drugging the girls and using their G&G-based delusions to control them. Now that Ethel has gone through withdrawal, Betty has an ally on her side. Now, they just have to escape and shut the whole evil place down.center_img Long live the Queen. #Riverdale pic.twitter.com/Aka5umtKen— Riverdale (@CW_Riverdale) December 13, 2018They tie up the head mother and learn that the game was a tool to make the girls in their care complacent. They used the instilled obsession with the Gargoyle King to control the girls. Hiram, she reveals, is the one who brought it out of the convent. He’s the one using it to control Riverdale. To what end, or how he plans to do it… the episode doesn’t reveal just yet. Not that we should expect any real answers at this point in the season, but I’d still like a little more. The CW makes a big deal out of its midseason finales and to leave so much in the dark isn’t quite as fun as the show thinks it is. The dialog is all so obviously talking around any specifics, it just gets awkward. Riverdale has never been known for its naturalistic dialog, but this is a whole other level of “nobody talks like this.”That said, it does lead to a couple of genuinely cool moments, exactly the kind of scenes you want from a midseason finale. The first is how Betty breaks the rest of the girls out of the convent. They’re still under the brainwashing of the sisters. Getting them to willingly leave is no easy feat. Instead of making each and every one of them go through Fizzle Rock withdrawal, Betty replaces their deity. She decapitates the gargoyle statue and declares herself the Griffin Queen. Betty really is the smartest person in this whole town, and it’s always fun to watch her let her inner badass out like this.Trinity Likins as Jellybean, Cole Sprouse as Jughead and KJ Apa as Archie -(Photo Credit: Diyah Pera/The CW)The other cool scene is much more sinister. After Veronica and Cheryl syrup-board Penelope for information (God, this f-ing show!), they confront Hermione, hoping to depose her before she can enact Hiram’s plan. She takes her dialog straight out of the climactic scene of Watchmen. “I did it 10 minutes ago.” At that moment, everything goes to hell. We still frustratingly don’t know exactly what Hiram has planned, but the end of the episode is scary ominous nonetheless. It’s just a very well-directed moment of tension. It also helps that we’re at least told what the immediate consequences are. The whole town is under quarantine. And therefore, it’s entirely under the Lodge’s control. So that’s how Hiram plans to keep the outside world from taking issue with his drug empire.Despite the frustrations of watching Riverdale fall back on its worst impulses, this was an enjoyable midseason finale. It’s a good, unsettling cliffhanger with which to send us into the holiday break. It certainly helps that there’s really no way this one could be a cop-out. Riverdale is under quarantine and nobody can get in our out. That’s a damn intriguing premise to come back to. Even the Archie storyline, as cut off from the rest of the plot as it was, was still enjoyable. He and Jughead visit Jughead’s mom and sister for the night. We get some funny comic relief moments, like Jelly Bean’s crush on Archie and the mom assuming Jughead and Archie are a couple. She’s been reading the fanfic. The episode was a bit over-serious as it was, so we needed those little moments.Gina Gershon as Gladys Jones (Photo Credit: Diyah Pera/The CW)They couldn’t last long though. Once Penny Peabody shows up to kill Archie, we find out the full extent of Hiram’s contract. He wants Archie completely out of the picture, along with anyone found helping him. That means if he does go back to Riverdale, his dad and friends will all be in danger. And if Jughead keeps traveling with him, so will he. So they call Fred Andrews to say one last tearful goodbye to his son before driving him to the Canadian border. The heartfelt scene doesn’t quite land the way it should. Maybe because Archie’s story has consistently been the weakest of this season. Maybe because we all know he’ll be back before too long. In any case, the emotional goodbye feels a little hollow. Maybe we’ll be proven wrong, but who knows?At least this storyline had some real consequences. Not only will Archie be on his own, but Jughead and FP can’t get back into Riverdale. They were outside the city limits when the quarantine was declared. Now, there are a bunch of angry men with guns who won’t let them in. Oh, and Hiram Lodge is talking to the actual real Gargoyle King in his office. So there’s a ton more going on there that the show isn’t telling us yet. As frustrating as the lack of answers can be, it’s definitely got me hooked, I’ll give it that. At this point, it’s in more of a guilty pleasure way than a good TV way, but the outcome’s the same. I’ll be glued to my seat when Riverdale returns in 2019.Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.Previously on Riverdale:Riverdale Season 3, Episode 7 RecapRiverdale Season 3, Episode 6 RecapRiverdale Season 3, Episode 5 Recaplast_img read more

Courtois Real Madrid lost control in Girona defeat

first_imgGoalkeeper Thibaut Courtois believes Girona’s strong second-half display proved key to ending Real Madrid’s eight-match unbeaten run.Prior to today’s encounter, Real had secured five successive La Liga wins to put themselves within six points of leaders Barcelona and an unlikely title challenge looked set to go ahead after beating city rivals Atletico Madrid 3-1 last weekend.But Los Blancos were sent back crashing down to Earth this afternoon in front of their home supporters at the Santiago Bernabeu.Casemiro’s 25th-minute header from Toni Kroos’ cross down the right wing appeared to set a heavily changed Real side, who were missing a suspended Luka Modric with Gareth Bale benched, on course for a sixth consecutive league win.Things soon fell apart though in the second-half with Cristhian Stuani’s penalty putting Girona back on level terms before Portu headed in another for the visitors in the 75th-minute to seal a shock 2-1 win.Adding to Real’s misery came when Sergio Ramos was sent off in stoppage-time for an attempted overhead kick that instead caught Girona’s Pedro Alcala.“We played well in the first half, but the pace was not as high as in some of our recent games,” said Courtois on the club website.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“They had two chances which I was able to stop but in the second half they played much better and brought a real threat. Girona always make life difficult, it’s three points we really had to win today”.“The penalty is a shame. After that we struggled to control the game and that’s when they made it 1-2.“We didn’t react well and Girona took the win. Now we have to continue winning games and put in a good performance against Levante. We have to keep fighting, La Liga is a long-run thing”.Santiago Solari’s side are now third in La Liga and will next take a trip to Levante UD next Sunday.FP: @realmadrid 1-2 @GironaFC ⚽ @Casemiro 25′; Stuani 65′ (p), Portu 75’#RMLiga pic.twitter.com/pta596lvkJ— Real Madrid C.F.⚽ (@realmadrid) February 17, 2019last_img read more

Benton leading trade mission to Cambodia

first_imgState Sen. Don Benton, R-Vancouver, will lead a weeklong trade mission to Cambodia, where he hopes to promote Southwest Washington agriculture and architecture. “The whole idea is to strengthen both trade and governmental ties with another country,” Benton said. “Washington state is the most trade-dependent state in the nation, as you know. The more we strengthen our ties with the Pacific Rim partners, the better.” Benton said he will take unpaid time off from his position as Clark County’s director of environmental services. He will be acting in his capacity as state senator but said he will spend $2,200 from his own bank account. Some additional costs may be paid by the government of Cambodia, he said, and no state funds will be used for the trip.“We’re trying to generate more business and more imports and exports for Washington state and efforts like this pay off,” Benton said.“I think a lot of folks still see Cambodia as a poor, Third World country and they may not realize the prosperity and growth they have had in the last 10 years.”Benton said about nine other people are planning to travel with him, including one elected county official from the Tri-Cities region. Michael O’Connell, legal counsel to the state Legislative Ethics Board, said the trip fits the bill for a trade mission. There are meetings set up between Cambodian officials and those with a stake in Washington business. “There are no words in the law that says what a trade mission has to consist of, so we look at what the purpose of the trip is,” O’Connell said. “This is an economic delegation, there are opportunities in Cambodia and they are using it to connect businesses with Washington state and leaders.”last_img read more

The term enclaved is accepted internationally – Photis Photiou

first_imgHumanitarian aid to the Greek Cypriots enclaved in the Turkish occupied areas of the Reublic of Cyprus can be sent immediately, as long as the announcements of the occupation regime are put into practice, Presidential Commissioner Photis Photiou has said.In statements, Photiou said that the unacceptable taxes on food and essentials, that the Republic of Cyprus sends to the enclaved – mostly elderly – must be lifted.Invited by CNA to comment on remarks by Turkish Cypriot “foreign minister” and “deputy prime minister” Kudret Özersay that the decision to impose taxes was wrong and efforts were underway to reverse the decision, and that the term “enclaved” was erroneously used, Photiou said that “these people have been living under occupation for 44 years.”“They are living under an occupation regime, they are and will be enclaved as long as there is occupation. In any case, this term is recognised by the United Nations and the European Union, and internationally. They are people who all these years have been deprived and are being deprived of their human rights and they are enclaved,” Photiou said.You May LikeRelocation Target15 Countries Where People Live the Healthiest LivesRelocation TargetUndoSoGoodlyHere’s Why Air Force One Beats Every Other PlaneSoGoodlyUndoFigLeaf Beta AppThis Is Exactly Why Online Privacy MattersFigLeaf Beta AppUndo Greece to overturn law that made universities no-go zone for policeUndoLimassol police investigating attempted murderUndoFresh case of Blue Nile virus in northUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Central bank says Coop worst case scenario theoretical amid bank run Update

first_imgAn increase in withdrawals at the Co-op compelled the Central Bank of Cyprus to say that Thursday’s comments made by one of its officials on the disastrous consequences for depositors of a failure to implement the Hellenic – Co-op deal were intended to highlight the worst-case scenario rather than present the probable scenario.“The comments about the remote, theoretical probability of the liquidation of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank were made to stress the most extreme negative consequences if the transfer of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank to Hellenic Bank is not completed, a solution which under the circumstances constitutes the only alternative,” a central bank spokesperson said in an emailed statement on Friday.On Friday, customers were queuing inside and outside Co-op branches leading to an increase in withdrawals, sources familiar with the matter said. In the first three months of the year, the Co-ops saw €2 billion in cash withdrawals amid concerns over the bank’s capital adequacy. Depositor concern was amplified by comments made by opposition politicians who left open whether their parties would support a government bill that would allow the government to extend guarantees to Hellenic Bank to shield it from a probable under performance of assets it agreed to acquire.The Co-op, the second largest lender on the island, has a ‘very important market share in deposits’ facilitating ‘critical functions’ for the economy, the central bank spokesperson said.The Cyprus Coperative Bank declined to comment.“Therefore, interest and economic and financial stability necessitate that there is no impact on insured depositors. Therefore, even in the case of considering the probability of resolution, public interest will lead to the complete protection of insured deposits without raising the issue of liquidating the bank if the deal on the sale of the Cyprus Cooperative Bank’s operations is not completed,”On Thursday, Yiangos Demetriou, head of the central bank’s supervision department warned members of the parliament’s watchdog committee of the ‘disastrous’ effects the non-implementation of the agreement signed by Hellenic Bank with the Cyprus Cooperative Bank on Monday would have. Demetriou had also said that the European Central Bank and the Single Resolution Mechanism, were preparing for a scenario under which the deal was not implemented.The deal, which provides for the transfer of the Co-op’s operations to Hellenic, including €9.7bn in deposits, would spare the Co-op from being liquidated, Demetriou said.The implementation of the deal also requires the approval of a bundle of amendments in legislation to help banks reduce their non-performing loans, which the European Commission set as condition for allowing taxpayers’ money to facilitate the deal.The Central Bank of Cyprus spokesperson added that deposits up to €100,000 per individual or legal entity per financial institution remain guaranteed in accordance with a European directive transposed into national law.In 2013, depositors at Cyprus Popular Bank lost all their uninsured deposits after the bank ran out of capital while those at Bank of Cyprus recapitalised it with almost half of their savings in excess of €100,000.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo 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
