“Washington To Back Greek Call For Debt Relief (K.)”
It is important to understand the background to this. Turkey was always the favourite of Washington and Turkish warplanes infringed Greek airspace with impunity. Washington never told Turkey to desist. Now, the situation is different. Turkey has moved towards Russia (in an untrustworthy way) and has ordered a Russian air defence system – so that they can shoot down attacking NATO planes whereas their existing system would identify attacking aircraft as “friendly”. The USA is compelled to take Greece more seriously. Additionally, Germany is removing its presence from the largest NATO airbase in Turkey. This means that Germany will also start being more “friendly” to Greece. Just you wait and see. 🙂
As regards Syria, the USA is proving to the whole world just how they despise Syria’s civilians. Forget about that poor little girl buried in Greece. I am talking about millions of people.
“We’re not here forever to fix everything. We have no money or desire to spend 20 years here demining the homes,” a US official involved in the civilian operations in Syria told the agency (AFP).
As the rout of ISIS forces continues in Syria, the civilian population begins returning to their homes and their lives that had been disrupted by the Islamic State, al-Qaeda, and other extremist groups. According to the United Nations, more than 600,000 Syrians have returned to areas liberated by the Syrian government with the assistance of Russia and Iranian forces.
Belgrade had the idea to help Russian demining activities in Syria but DC sent different marching orders

“More acidic oceans ‘will affect all sea life'”
A glance at this headline is enough to convince anyone who knows a little chemistry that the BBC is spreading propaganda. The oceans are slightly alkaline. This headline should read: “Less alkaline oceans ‘will affect all sea life'”. But that headline would turn that article into a joke.
The second big lie in that article is omitting to mention that the oceans contain 50 times as much CO2 as the atmosphere. There is no possible way that human activity can increase that to 55 times say. Just like the CO2 in a soft drink, the dissolved gas leaves the liquid when the pressure is lowered or the temperature raised. In the case of the oceans, they release CO2 when the climate warms and absorb it when the climate cools – with a delay of hundreds of years. Temperature leads CO2 level – not the other way around.

“Of course, 1982 was actually the best time ever to buy a bond. With long-term rates dropping like a stone over the next 35 years, bond investors and bond managers became known as the smartest people in the room.”
An even better opportunity will arise in the future, with yields on 10 year US treasuries exceeding those in 1982, possibly in the mid-20s, as even sovereign US treasury debt is regarded as high risk. Most of us may not live to see the new peak, but it would be the buy of a lifetime and a wonderful inheritance for our progeny.
