Facing rebels, Kiev takes arms.

Ukraine president ready for talks if pro-Russia rebels lay down ...

The law of arms officially resumed its course in the southeast of the Ukraine. After ten days of a fragile truce that had nevertheless allowed the launch of diplomatic negotiations between Kiev and the rebels of the Donbass, Ukrainian president, Petro Poroshenko, decided, Monday evening, put an end to the cease-fire, accusing the separatists of violating it several times. "By their criminal actions, their unique chance to apply the peace plan has not been seized", said the head of State, before prevent: "We will attack." A few hours later, the authorities announced the resumption of ‘anti-terrorist operation’, which materialized by the airstrikes and artillery fire. According to Kiev, the army would have already resumed a border post to the insurgents near Luhansk. Presidential decision even more surprised that the same day, Poroshenko, François Holland, Angela Merkel and Vladimir Poutine tried a new telephone mediation. Moscow had accepted the arrival of international observers in three border crossings, on the side of Russian, in order to control traffic. Waste: the OSCE, which had already seen two of its teams taken hostage by the rebels, has refused to send new observers to the region. Above all, a meeting of the national Security Council, the Ukrainian general staff confirmed that its daily reports indicated every day on the ground: the violation, one hundred times, of the ceasefire, killing 27 soldiers. Worse, according to military sources, the separatists would have benefited from Truce to reconstitute their forces and renew their equipment. "If this truce was extended, terrorists would have strengthened their military preparation, with the assistance of the Russia that formed still more mercenaries for the handling of missile launchers", accused Dmitri Timtchouk, Director of the political research centre. The presidential decision is keeping pace with a majority of Ukrainian public opinion. It requires more firmness on the part of a president elected with more than 50% of the vote. "These negotiations of Donetsk were grotesque, insofar as criminals and bandits of the Donbass that were represented were merely puppets manipulated by Putin," launches Oxana Melnitchouk, Coordinator of the Ukrainian crisis center. Poroshenko has responded to these criticisms without nevertheless introducing state of emergency that require thousands of volunteers today in battalions of auxiliaries. For their part, Russian support of the Kremlin involved the legitimacy of one of the negotiators of Kiev, namely the former president Leonid Koutchma. Vladimir Poutine immediately accused Poroshenko "to take political responsibility" of the war. Effort to drive a wedge between Brussels and Washington, the Kremlin leader implicitly criticised the United States pushed Kiev to resume the anti-terrorism operation. "In contrast to the Americans, who declare their readiness to hit Moscow portfolio – hypothesis that worries the Russian elite-, the European Union simply spoke, Tuesday, the possibility of extending the"spectrum"of the repre0un new economic sanctions package that would allow a return to negotiations, the extension of the anti-terrorist operation will prove ineffective and will not bring peace in the region", considers Grigory NemyriaChairman of the Committee for European integration in the Verkhovna Rada, the Ukrainian Parliament. So this is the Ukraine and its new president returned to the status quo ante. .

“This tragedy reinforces each of the camps in Israel.

Uncategorized — Mother of All Mavens

Etgar Keret, Israeli writer in the world (1) and filmmaker, embodies the young rotation of the great consciences of Israel, Amos Oz, David Grossman, A. B. Yehoshua, who are fighting for decades for peace between Israelis and Palestinians. It reacts to the death of three young Israelis of 16 and 19 missing on 12 June and found dead yesterday near the town of Halhoul, near the road where they were seen for the last time, hitchhiking. The Government accuses Hamas. What is depressing is believed still to be prepared for bad news but in reality it is never ready. Strangely this tragedy strengthens each of the camps in Israel in its positions. I who am left I find myself saying, as the right people, ‘we were right. Leftists because it is evidence of what they say constantly, it must at all costs happen to us to make peace with the Palestinians. And them, right people argue that it is evidence of what they think: it can never make peace with the Palestinians. We are living the same repetitive cycles. For a time nothing happens and everyone says: "it’s alright, what’s the problem? ” Until it happens something. When we talk about the future Government there never any strategy, he never takes the slightest initiative. He waits for the next disaster and then strikes in retaliation. The pattern repeats. It seems that nobody wants the lessons to emerge from the cycle disaster-retaliation. So in revenge, Let’s kill some Hamas activists, which will not prevent future kidnappings and assassinations. As I said, this strengthens the positions of each. Netanyahu’s Government is going to take the opportunity to say: see what a Palestinian Authority with Hamas inside. The Government will begin in retaliation that will only serve to unite against Israel the Palestinian moderate and extremist Palestinians. On the contrary, if we continued negotiations in these difficult circumstances could break this fatal partnership between two groups of people who see the reality in a completely different way. One hand Abbas who does what he can to continue the political process of peace negotiation. And on the other militant groups who want to kidnap and kill precisely to stop this process. It is true that the Israeli society encourages violence but Abbas will have to choose between continuing to work for peace or remain loyal to Hamas. I hope that it will choose peace but he is marginalized, if nobody wants to negotiate with him, he will throw himself into the arms of Hamas. The Israelis cannot have surprised air whenever there is a terrorist act when it offers no alternative. The tragedies will continue. I’m very sad and angry also. It will do harm to people who deserve it and others who do not deserve. The balance of terror never works.

Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, Caliph instead of the Caliph.

ISIS shortens name to IS after declaring Caliphate | Ya Libnan

Well, the terrified world comes to discover more infamous, cruel and unfortunately more effective than Iznogoud. And that one, he is not good at all, but then not at all. Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi proclaimed himself Caliph of the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq. He took the name of Caliph Ibrahim and claims as the leader of all Muslims. The new Caliph announced that opened a new era for international Jihad. Adding: We point out to all Muslims that with the declaration of the Caliphate, it them is now mandatory swear allegiance to the Caliph Ibrahim and support. The legality of all the Emirates, groups, States and organizations becomes zero at the time of the expansion of the Caliphate and the arrival of his troops in their territories. Dr. Charles Lister, of the think-tank Brookings Doha, wrote: to put it simply, Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi has declared war on Al-Qaida. The younger generation of jihadists argues more the EIIL, essentially because of its proven ability to get quick results by its brutality, he assures. The recent Mosul Jack and other gains in Iraq has already increased dramatically the EIIL recruitment potential, according to him. In fact, the barbaric cruelty of men of Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi seduces the young jihadi parties do the war in Syria. The Front Al-Dhanub, a Syrian branch of Al-Qaida, accused the EIIL jihadists to go too far in the brutality. This is true, they will eventually make the job of very unfriendly terrorist. But, actually, for the brutal, it is the brutal. The EIIL thus executed Saturday 28 June Deir Hafer eight rebels in the East of the province of Aleppo. He then crucified them on the main square of the village where their bodies are expected to remain for three days, according to the Syrian Observatory for human rights, an NGO that relies on an extensive network of activists and medical and military sources. .

Christopher Uvenio Collezioni: Claude Montana Mystery

He will miss the fashionable. Large, grey hair provided and well combed, always wearing a suit that it snows or make heatwave, the president of the French Federation of couture, Didier Grumbach, decided to move the hand after sixteen years of activity. The announcement was made this Tuesday afternoon, and the Executive Committee of the Federation has appointed Ralph Toledano, president of the mode of the Puig group division, to succeed him. The task is not thin.

This role, Didier Grumbach, 77 years, complied with the incomparable knowledge of a universe where he was the official "spokesman". A world that has radically changed.

"This was not an ascending phase," said Grumbach release Tuesday morning, with a sense of the understatement that characterizes. "We decided to climb in power from 1997. Today, high fashion caps pyramid mode. Below, the ready-to-wear took a fantastic place. "Paris is more disputed [hear: as a world fashion capital, what is not wrong]. The couturier of yesterday, which was dedicated to haute couture, and negotiating licensing agreements to responsible subcontractors of the loan – to-wear and accessories, a sort of demigod who had said Grumbach, of being "at the centre of social life ‘,. He adds: "Thanks be to God, this is no longer the case. All this has become a bit more serious. "And welcomes the emergence of a new generation of designers very (too?) aware of the ‘commercial’ aspect of the profession:"the greatest fashion designers are the biggest exporters."Present at each each week Paris fashion parade, Didier Grumbach has never been reluctant to give novices the keys this peculiar world that is fashionable, nor to help young designers as journalists to hack their way among the falbalas. He was born in fashion, in a family dedicated to making: the Parisian company C. Mendes had been founded as early as 1902. And his maternal uncle was called Pierre Mendès-France, former president of the Council of the Fourth Republic.  Didier Grumbach began his career in the family home, which just made the claws like Lanvin, Patou, Ungaro ready-to-wear. In 1966, with Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé, he created Saint Laurent Rive Gauche. Then, in 1971, in partnership with the designer Andrée Putman, this is the time of designers and industrialists, who would become one of the first concept store in the world. Instead, its dynamic play a central role and accompany the emergence of the new wave of the late 1970s, Mugler, Gaultier, Castelbajac. More recently, Grumbach has also helped in the creation of the french Institute of fashion (IFM), he presided over the school of the chambre syndicale couture, as well as the association of the villa Noailles where stands each year in the spring, one of the most beautiful events that are, dedicated to young designers.

According to the European Court, the ban on wearing the burqa does not violate the right to freedom of religion nor to respect for private life and is therefore acceptable. Indeed, according to the 17 judges gathered in the "great Room", is fully legitimate the objective that French law arises according to the explanation of the Paris authorities, i.e. the promotion of harmony in society through social interactions.

Mps: the double game has become quadruple.

PowerVR graphics give the quad-core Allwinner A31s a competitive ...

The double game, invented by a Tuscan Friar who lived in the 15TH second, Fra Luca Pacioli, is the universally used to prepare budgets, and business is to record every ledger entry through two voices that must necessarily be the same. Brother Pacioli’s invention, having survived almost unchanged for over 500 years, is about to be supplanted by quadruple match». For an incredible coincidence of destiny, this new found birth among the hills of Chianti and Brunello, in a region whose vineyards inspired the Italian creativity in a field regarded as rather dull, like that accountant. The game presents a remarkable double limit: in no way does not prevent companies to write next to the individual entries that make up the budget the figures they want. The quadruple match instead, universally accepted, would ‘ eliminate ‘ any possibility of manipulation. Like all brilliant inventions, is remarkably simple: a company that intends to draw up a budget so different from current accounting standards, it may publish a second version in which properly explains the errors by means of pro forma statements annexes; and at this point the budget can be considered correct. While derivatives scandals is full, the quadruple batch method is currently used only in Italy on an experimental basis. Some will arise a question of correct information to the markets should not be readily extended to all the Member States of the European Union. Suppose that an Italian bank enters into a derivative with a German Bank, and that the German Bank decided to highlight in its budget for 200 million loss, while the Italian doesn’t account for anything except make it emerge in pro forma. The use of double entry by the German Bank and quadruple match by the Italian would make confusion. The hope is that the President of the Council Matteo Renzi convince Federal Chancellor Merkel to implement the quadruple batch in all EU countries, perhaps extending also to the use of public finance: in this way the Italy could submit a budget with significant debt and a balanced balance without star much to negotiate on fiscal compact. The genius of quadruple match applied to derivative risk is Giulio Tremonti, his first inspiration, so much so that last year formalised his ideas in some crazy Bill: to resolve this problem simply avoid writing them in the budget. Vegas, very sensitive to hints of the former Minister, today after Unipol, promptly applies also to Monte dei Paschi. .
