Two-thirds of this would come from spending cuts and one third from revenues.Worries that Greece will be forced to restructure its massive government debt saw Greek bond yields surge yesterday. Markets were reacting to German finance minister Wolfgang Schaeuble’s warning that “additional steps” may have to be taken if research suggests that Greek debt is not sustainable.The yield on two-year Greek bonds hit 18.4 per cent, while five-year yields briefly topped 18 per cent and 10 year yields rose to a euro lifetime high of 13.61 per cent.Greece “needs more time” to convince investors that its reform programme is on track, finance minister George Papaconstantinou also said.It is unclear when Greece will be able to return to the financial markets for funding, Papaconstantinou admitted.A review of the Greek position is due to be published in June, written by the European Central Bank (ECB) and European Commission.Senior ECB official Olli Rehn hit back yesterday, insisting: “We do not see debt restructuring as an option. Instead we are engaged in a revised and updated debt sustainability analysis, which we will do with the IMF and present in due course,” Rehn said. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesMoneyPailShe Was An Actress, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Wynn posts $1.04bn loss in H1 amid global Covid-19 closures

first_img Casino operator Wynn Resorts has reported a net loss of $1.04bn for the first half of the year, after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic forced the temporary closure of its venues in the US and Macau. Casino & games Email Address Regions: China US Macau Casino operator Wynn Resorts has reported a net loss of $1.04bn (£795.0m/€880.0m) for the first half of the year, after the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic forced the temporary closure of its venues in the US and Macau.Total operating revenue in the six months to June 30 amounted to $1.04bn, down 68.6% from $3.31bn in the corresponding period last year.Though Wynn did not publish regional results for the first half, it said that the pandemic had an impact on all of its properties, with each having had to close for a period in line with regulations aimed at slowing the spread of Covid-19.Macau-based operations at the Wynn Palace and Wynn Macau were halted on February 5 and did not resume until February 20, albeit it on a reduced basis. Operations are yet to be fully restored, with Wynn still facing a host of measures such as traveller quarantines, limited table game capacity and slot machine spacing.It is not yet clear when these measures will be lifted, but on July 15, authorities eased certain quarantine requirements for those traveling between Guangdong Province and Macau.In the US, the Wynn Las Vegas in Nevada temporarily closed on March 17 and did not reopen until June 4, again with a number of restrictions in place, in line with state orders. The Encore Boston Harbor in Massachusetts ceased all operations and closed to the public on March 15, and did not reopen again until July 12, after the reporting period had ended.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Relatos bíblicos en español vuelven a la vida en Texas

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Thomas E. Fountain enseña a leer a centroamericanos en los años 40 con sus relatos de personajes bíblicos[Diócesis Episcopal de Texas Occidental] Cuando era una bebita, el padre y la madre de Sarah Willingham la montaron en su Plymouth de 1939, engancharon un remolque cargado con sus muebles y enseres domésticos y un viejo órgano de fuelle y salieron rumbo a México. Eso marcó el comienzo de un viaje que los llevaría a la misión de por vida de llevar el Evangelio a personas de habla hispana en todo el mundo.Thomas E. Fountain, o Tomás de la Fuente como era conocido en los libros que escribió en español, se sentía motivado por el deseo de divulgar la Biblia entre la población indígena de México, Honduras y otros países de Sur y Centroamérica. Prolífico autor en inglés, expandió sus tones de escritor al traducir relatos bíblicos al español y recontarlos de un modo que fuera culturalmente sensible, de manera que personas de limitada preparación pudieran leer, entender y aplicar sus lecciones a sus propias vidas.Entre sus libros para este público había una serie sobre personajes bíblicos, empezando por Abraham, seguido por José y luego por Sara. Han estado agotados durante muchos años, pero ahora, casi 75 años después de que ella viajara a México con sus padres, Willingham está trayéndolos de vuelta a la vida.Miembro de la iglesia episcopal de San Marcos [St. Mark’s], ella ha comenzado la empresa Libros de la Fuente, una casa editorial sin fines de lucro en Wimberley, al suroeste de Austin. Su objetivo es volver a imprimir los libros de su padre y ponerlos en las manos de los hispanohablantes de hoy a través de feligreses, de la Diócesis Episcopal de Texas Occidental y de otras iglesias episcopales y denominaciones, en viajes de misión. Willingham dijo que los libros también tiene un lugar en las congregaciones de habla hispana de EE.UU.Su labor comenzó hace unos nueve años cuando Willingham, después de la muerte de su padre, se encontró los libros. “Muy pronto el Espíritu Santo estaba induciéndome” a reimprimirlos, contó ella. Trabajando con su nombre en español, Sarita de la Fuente, ella le hizo alguna corrección de estilo a la obra original de su padre, y luego probó su fluidez en base a un programa elaborado por su hermana. “Lo tenemos en un nivel de escolaridad que no sólo resulta fácil para la persona que tiene habilidades de lectura básicas, sino también a todos los niveles”, dice ella.Además, ella creó cuestionarios de estudio para los libros, de manera que puedan leerse de principio a fin o en segmentos.En la actualidad, ha publicado los libros sobre Abraham, Sara y José, pero se propone añadir más, incluida la reimpresión de algunos de los otros títulos de su padre sobre las Parábolas y sobre Jesús. “Él escribió 18 de estos [libros]. “Ahora mismo tenemos solamente los tres primeros”.También se propone escribir uno ella sobre Isaac, basándose en las instrucciones que dejara su padre respecto a cómo escribir para este público en particular. “Lo llamamos Isaac y sus hijos mellizos, dijo ella. “Intentamos darle un poquito de sabor de familia al título”.Los libros cuestan $7 cada uno. La Diócesis de Texas Occidental está poniendo estos folletos a disposición de líderes de equipos que van en viajes de misión a países de habla hispana, dijo Marthe D. Curry, directora del Centro para las Misiones Mundiales en la diócesis.“A todo el mundo les gusta”, dijo Curry. “Las estamos promoviendo más este otoño con las nuevas ediciones de Sarah.La diócesis también está planeando ofrecerlas como parte de un taller foro sobre escuelas dominicales en las iglesias mexicanas que se celebró en conjunto con Frontera Unida, una asociación del clero del valle del Río Grande y la diócesis de Nuevo México.La Oficina del Ministerio Latino/Hispano también está al tanto de los libros. Otras denominaciones también los han usado.“La gente de México en particular expresó que no se leen como una traducción”, dijo ella. “Es como si los hubieran escrito para mí y no que los hubieran escrito para otra persona y me lo tradujeran”.Ella dijo también que los lectores perciben que los libros hacen los personajes bíblicos más accesibles “y pertinentes a sus vidas actuales. Una persona dijo que hasta ahora estos individuos eran como personajes de cartón o iconos en la pared. Ahora me parecen reales”.Criado en Nueva Jersey, Fountain comenzó su obra cuando le aplazaron el servicio militar obligatorio durante la segunda guerra mundial. Siendo un hombre casado, padre de familia y ministro bautista, las Fuerzas Armadas aplazaron su reclutamiento. Sin embargo, él quería ayudar a otros a través de su ministerio.Aunque no hablaba ni una palabra en español, se unió al grupo de Mexican Indian Mission, lo enviaron a Ciudad de México a aprender el idioma y luego al México rural, a Husuchinango, en Puebla.“Papa creía que estas personas estaban realmente necesitadas de leer la Escritura”, dijo Willingham. El problema era que muchos tenían tan limitado nivel de alfabetización, “que se sentían completamente intimidados cuando intentaban leer la Biblia con sus [escasas] destrezas en la lectura”.“Él descubrió que el número de lectores era tan limitado que incluso los que estaban en el seminario pasaban trabajo [para leer] los materiales traducidos”, apuntó ella. “Algunos de los prejuicios culturales eran una cosa. La otra era que a veces el vocabulario estaba sencillamente fuera de su alcance”.“Eso se convirtió en el cimiento de lo que él hizo”, añadió ella. “Él decidió regresar [a EE.UU.] y obtener un diploma avanzado en alfabetización y fue a Honduras con el objetivo de enseñar a leer a la gente. Tenían un índice de alfabetización de sólo el 40 por ciento. Él percibió que era terreno fértil”.Se valió de programas de radio para reforzar las lecturas y “luego se dijo que debía encontrar materiales para que los leyeran. Así fue cuando empezó a escribir estos folletos”, explicó ella.“Él tomó diferentes personajes bíblicos y recontó su historia en lenguaje contemporáneo y utilizó un vocabulario que los lectores inexpertos o los recién alfabetizados podían entender”, siguió diciendo ella. “Lo que descubrió fue que no sólo estas personas recién alfabetizadas respondían a estos [textos], sino que muchísimos ministros y líderes de estudios bíblicos encontraban el material muy útil”.Los ministros hasta empezaron a citar su obra en los sermones y los líderes de estudios bíblicos lo utilizaban para su trabajo.“Él realmente quería que la gente sintiera una conexión personal con la Escritura y con el Evangelio”, afirmó. “Que no era algo remoto, sino que era algo con lo que podían realmente relacionarse”.Escribir los libros de los relatos bíblicos no fue el único éxito editorial de Fountain. También creó una compañía editorial en México con oficinas en Costa Rica y publicó los textos de muchos autores cristianos así como algunas de sus propias obras. Uno de sus libros más notables fue una Hermenéutica que todavía se sigue usando en algunos seminarios de América del Sur.“Escribía constantemente”, contó ella. “Su pasión era que la gente en verdad pudiera tener acceso a la Escritura. Si sentían que la Biblia que ponían en sus manos estaba más allá de su capacidad de entendimiento, entonces debía haber otra vía para ayudarles a acceder a eso. Esa era realmente su pasión, que conocieran el Evangelio, que conocieran la Biblia”.La visión de Willingham es llevar adelante la misión de su padre al continuar proporcionando material que sea legible para cualquier nivel, fundamentalmente en español.

The land is located north of the City of Merida, Yucatan, in the Country Farm, has a privileged location for a house, as it is one of the most traditional and central residential areas of the City, near Avenues principal, but on a quiet street with little vehicular traffic. The area for the development of the project enjoys a very wooded environment and has 20.00 meters of front x 36.00 meters of a bottom with orientation east-west. The design of the project responded to a great extent to these factors, as well as the needs of the user who inhabits it, a young but traditionalist family that wanted something modern and functional.Save this picture!© David Cervera CastroWith a plot of 735.00m², a program of 494.55m² was solved on two floors. The concept for this solution was to create a large central courtyard to the north of the land and a large social block that has the distinction of being a living room, living / dining room, dining room, bar, terrace, since all the corridors of the house are large windows that hide in the walls to completely change the space and adapt it to the user’s needs, all this block together with the kitchen look towards this central patio, the services were located in the southern part of the land as a buffer of the house, and to the east the pool and the garden.Save this picture!© David Cervera CastroSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© David Cervera CastroOn the upper floor, there are the bedrooms and a study area, totally private.

Internet governance, the position of Reporters Without Borders

first_img Organisation Help by sharing this information News RSF_en The second stage of the UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis from 16 to 18 November will discuss how to legally and technically administer the Internet. Reporters Without Borders stresses the bad effects on freedom of expression that alternatives proposed by some countries will have. The second stage of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis from 16 to 18 November will be a showy United Nations event where countries will try to agree on the legal and technical future of the Internet. How the Web is administered and regulated worldwide will be the hottest topic on the agenda. The United States currently controls the main bodies that run the Internet, including the main one, ICANN, a California-based legal body that assigns domain names worldwide. Virtually every other country criticises this US monopoly as unacceptable. The reaction is understandable because ICANN’s decisions, though they seem very technical, have direct political repercussions. It can, in theory, block access to country domain names (for example, all the .fr or .cn sites). Money is also an issue because the body that runs the Internet has power to give advantage to some technologies and thus certain firms. The recent hiring by Google of Internet pioneer Vinton Cerf, ICANN’s vice-president, has therefore raised concern.The situation can certainly be criticised but the proposed remedies seem much worse. China, Cuba and the world’s other most repressive countries want to hand over control of the Internet to an independent supra-national body such as the United Nations. But the UN’s clumsy record on human rights – its Rights Commission was recently chaired by Libya – make the prospect a chilling one. Do we really want the countries that censor the Internet and throw its users in prison to be in charge of regulating the flow of information on it? The simple fact of holding of WSIS in Tunisia, whose president and his family control the national media and Internet access with an iron grip, shows that freedom of expression is not seen as a key issue at the Summit.Yet under all the world’s dictatorships, the Internet is these days an outlet for independent news that escapes censorship. Seeing the Internet as just something technical and thus allowing the likes of Iran and Vietnam to take part in running it worldwide is a mistake that could cost hundreds of millions of users dearly.The European Union has recently distanced itself clearly from the US position. Without lining up with China, it wants the WSIS to come up with a new multilateral decision-making process. It suggests that an international forum of private and public representatives be involved in running the Internet. But this is still too vague to be a credible alternative. The entire Internet depends on the reliability of procedures and technology approved by ICANN. Politicians sometimes have to be consulted, but giving too much importance to governments could harm the growth of the Web and undermine its stability.It is hard to justify ICANN being under control of one country forever. The United States will have to negotiate on this point and indeed it has proposed that the Internet be run by the private sector. It has to be admitted that the US has managed to develop the Internet without major problems and that it broadly respects online freedom of expression. So let us hope an acceptable compromise – that reduces government intervention to a minimum and guarantees freedom of expression -will be found at the WSIS. If not, it would be best to leave things as they are. November 10, 2005 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Internet governance, the position of Reporters Without Borderslast_img read more
