The recording was made by a non-Syrian who attended the session, the newspaper reported, adding that several other participants confirmed its authenticity.Russian forces joined the Syrian war a year ago, tipping the balance of power in favor of Assad, who is also supported by Iranian ground forces and Shi’ite militia fighters from Lebanon and Iraq.
The Times said several people in the meeting pressed Kerry on what they saw as contradictions in U.S. policy.
The New SDR Is Here! (FREEPOM) (westcoastjan)
From the moment I began writing about the transformation of the international monetary system the approach I took was one of accountability and integrity. If I was to be writing about such important matters it was vital that the information presented was accurate and well researched. Boomerang karma was not something I was interested in. As such, it became a personal responsibility of mine to ensure the information was accurate and all predictions could in time be proven and validated.
It is not solvency, or the lack of capital – a vague, synthetic, and usually quite arbitrary concept, determined by regulators – that kills a bank; it is – as Dick Fuld will tell anyone who bothers to listen – the loss of (access to) liquidity: cold, hard, fungible (something Jon Corzine knew all too well when he commingled and was caught) cash, that pushes a bank into its grave, usually quite rapidly: recall that it took Lehman just a few days for its stock to plunge from the high double digits to zero.
However, the FAZ didn’t cite any sources for this information and DB failed to respond immediately, according to Zero Hedge, in regard to their chief executive, John Cryan’s travel plans. Which is a pretty clear indication that the $5.6 Billion settlement number “obtained from twitter” is a total fabrication.
This makes perfect sense. None of this is supposed to be settled anytime soon. The idea is to make the global economic infrastructure tremble. The worse it gets, the easier it becomes to install a truly globalized economy.

Summers, who also served as a top economic adviser to President Barack Obama, reiterated his concerns about “secular stagnation,” where trend economic growth rates have been reduced and neutral interest rates are lower than historic norms. To the extent that low neutral rates are in part the consequence of investors preferring fixed-income assets and steering clear of riskier options, policy makers can combat that by buying risk assets, he said.
Investors should watch Deepwater’s operations closely, especially with their Block Island turbines coming online in November. By investing in the companies providing services to Deepwater, individuals can indirectly profit off the private company. Gulf Island Fabrications is one of these companies, as well as GE, who is working closely with Deepwater, maintaining an image of clean energy products. There should also be an indirect relationship between WTI crude futures and offshore wind turbine production activity.
Recalculating The Climate Math (jdargis)
That’s right: If we’re serious about preventing catastrophic warming, the new study shows, we can’t dig any new coal mines, drill any new fields, build any more pipelines. Not a single one. We’re done expanding the fossil fuel frontier. Our only hope is a swift, managed decline in the production of all carbon-based energy from the fields we’ve already put in production.
Along the Pacific coast, dry farmers follow a Mediterranean-style model tailored to dry summers and wet winters. While this system is beloved by its West Coast practitioners, dry farming is a tiny blip in California’s $43-billion agriculture industry—less than one percent, guesses Steve Gliessman, an agroecology professor at the University of California, Santa Cruz. That’s just an estimate, though, he says, as the people that keep track of such data “…don’t even think to ask farmers if they dry farm or not.”
