sounds like the Euro group are setting up the same complex financial instruments that caused the issues in the first place ?
effectively Greece has defaulted on its debt ? saying it any other way is just spin ?
basically the banks agreed effectively greece only had to pay them back 50p in the pound to the debts it owed ? becuase the euro taxpayer will reimburse.
that is the kind of arrangement that gets made by bankrupt defaulters, and the idea the banks agreed to this is tosh, the banks have agreed because they know the euro government and its taxpayers will pay for it one way or another, truth is … just like the cat in the hats pink splodge, pushing the debt around doesnt cause it to go away, this is a 1 to 2 year deferment at best. I dont think europe growth will recover by that point.
the greeks will probably still default, meanwhile theyre probably thinking the argentinian model looks good ie default and grow from a total debt struck off scenario.
did the average greek person benefit from this debt being loaned ? probably not ? but now 50% of the debt being written off, wow they have benefited.
The media live in liberal overpaid lala land at our tv licence paid tax expense, thousands of girls every week walk home at night, not because there too stupid to get one, they just dont have the money to pay for a taxi ? taxi or night out it’s a choice ? ever heard of the idea that poverty exposes you to greater danger ? … its real, but we cannot allow fear to rule the day. if you can afford a taxi … use one, if you can afford things … good for you … don’t throw middle class money founded values over everyone, next he’ll be saying if you dont have the money for a taxi, don’t go out ? is this guy an idiot ? Oh yes and we’d all be better of if we lived in nice neighbourhoods too ? perhaps thats our fault for being to poor to live in a nice area ! hes not too bright and he needs to get out of that studio and see the low ebb at which most people live in overcrowded poverty struck england. affording a taxi … is the least of the real dilemmas and limited opportunity’s that face the poor. and taxis arent always safe either …
the bbc’s one of each type principal or representation as they like to think of it, or positive discrimination as its termed, paint by numbers representation : but lets face who is going to watch the sarah jane adventures, apart from brainwashed children ?
A vehicle for and written specifically for an asian actor to star in ? is this designed to make people feel cuddly about multiculturalism ? asian doctor comes to the rescue of poor ignorant native welsh mining folk ? is it designed to subconsciously plant false history into the subconscious imagination of the populace.
quote from the independant 25 Aug2010 : about the time the expansion was probably started …
China, meanwhile, is interested in nurturing a homegrown video game industry that generates revenue for the country rather than acting as an economic and cultural drain.
The government has expressed a marked preference for the use of Chinese history, legend, and of course a respect for social norms as opposed to the appropriation of foreign origin stories.
For this reason, Blizzard and its Chinese licensee NetEase have been introducing modifications that improve the game’s acceptability.
NetEase also runs the wildly popular Fantasy Westward Journey and Westward Journey II, both of which are based on the 16th century epic Journey to the West
the original article here on the independant :
Anonymous overpaid blizztard corporate 40 year old marketing schmucks in a meeting ………
Guys Ideas please…
how we going to expand the game to addict younger people as well, & at the same make an expansion into the asian market ? as we need to make more money for the shareholders
Is there anyway we can prostitute this game out to make more money ?
cross breed the game with, “Kung Fu Panda” cartoon franchise, throw in chinese cultural elements for the asian markets, put pokemons in it for the kids.
this is what our research indicates will yield the largest possible market in china by making a culturally chinese expansion…
Next year the expansion will be 6 year old girl focussed, and will be called “stallions of the rainbow isle” (My little Pony the MMO anyone ?)
or perhaps the faerie fidgets of fantasy Pieland ?
Vanilla WOW please come back, conditional macros please come back discord action bars please come back, something true to some sane kind of evolvement of D&D please come back, BLizztards warcraft IP was always an aborted fetus, Cow warriors was enough of a stretch, and ents that manimal transform into bears and puma’s ? we ignored the flaws in the quality of the MMO, falsely projecting some kind of RPG integrity, where in fact there was none.
let alone the waste, the above articles shows is being spent on anti terrorist measures poor taxpayers as usual being f**Tf****d by useless politicians.
1: Only Tour if Ian Browns voice has got better at performing the repertoire compared to how it was toward the end of the stone roses ?
2: Theres no point going back on the road to flog the songs like dead horses > for money, if good equivalence can’t be made to the original sound otherwise you will be damaging the reputation of the music.
3: Do it if you can re-capture the spirit of the group, there’s nothing worse than mid forties types prancing around damaging their own legacy, pretending their still in their prime, do justice to your youth.
4: do the songs with love for them, have full practice concerts until you perfect your sound within a venue, and have some trustworthy people in the audience who are gonna tell you right what needs to happen to the sound to get it right, dont trust old ears.
5: Play the under-exposed killer tracks, to satisfy the fans before moving onto new material, so as to re-establish your strength with the audience, tenderly does it.
Having looked at the press conference, i’m prepared to give them the full benefit, after all theyre also older and wiser, they alll seem to be chipping in, no-one is having to forceful a personality, johns a bit quiet but he seems in the game, could be good they look alright healthwise which means they can probably still do it, apart from mani but mani has always had a touch of the ill about him, thats normal mani :)
