Turmoil in Greece continues

Greece, Spain, and possibly other countries in Europe are not willing to just put up with the austerity measures the US people have quietly accepted for the most part. Greece has had massive demonstrations against its government, complete with anarchist “black block” tactics.
Police fired repeated volleys of tear gas to repel rioters hurling firebombs and ripped-up paving stones as an anti-austerity rally by tens of thousands of protesters degenerated into violence. A crowd of youths smashed the windows of a luxury hotel in the square. More than 60 people were injured, including 36 police, as clouds of choking gas wafted through central Athens. Bewildered tourists struggled through the mayhem, dragging their luggage behind them…..
This new turmoil may be a turning point for the Western Alliance and NATO itself. It is possible that the failure of these states during a major depression may signal an inability to rubber stamp and help out the US Empire. Again, according to Yahoo News;
Prime Minister George Papandreou has been struggling to contain an internal party revolt over a new austerity package that is the main condition for continued funding from a euro110 billion ($155 billion) international bailout. Without continued funding from the rescue loans, Greece will default on its massive debts — which would unsettle the global economy and undermine the future of the eurozone.
Even more important, Tea Party Republicans here should consider the possibility that attacks on the US poor may backfire as desperate Americans see others rebelling and taking back their countries.
Spain is also in rebellion. According to The Kasama Project;
“‘Homeless, Jobless, Futureless, Fearless,’ ‘Our dreams can’t fit in your ballot boxes,’ ‘System Error Message from the Spanish Revolution’ these are some of the slogans of the “Indignados” (“The Outraged”) movement that has swept Spain since 15 May and is continuing in various forms today. On 25 June hundreds of people set out on foot in sweltering heat from Barcelona, Bilbao, Valencia, Cadiz and other cities in marches expected to converge on Madrid in July. Following are condensed excerpts from a report on the tumultuous first two weeks when the members of a young generation once considered politically indifferent and inert first forced their way onto the political stage. They have launched an intense debate previously almost forbidden by “common sense”, not to mention the country’s power structure, including the main left and right parties, about the desirability, possibility and modalities of radical change.
“This movement shares some features with the likewise unexpected revolt in the Arab countries, which helped inspire it, most notably an often fearless rejection of the status quo coupled with the idea that democratic reforms may be able to bring about basic change without a revolutionary seizure of power.”
The bottom line is that the kind of austerity measures being implemented here, are also being forced on Europe. It could cause the collapse of the European Union or it could even lead to a revolution. These are important times for revolutionaries in Europe.

Part of dressing well, means to carry your clothes well. And a secret to carrying your clothes well is to have great body language.

In my conversations with many small business owners and home business [url=http://upnikeaustralia01.webs.com/]Nike Free Run[/url] entrepreneurs, branding is almost always considered the turf of big boys. Ipod. GoogleInnovation should be at the heart of your strategySome of the above make sense even for a one-person business. I think the above list shows what every entrepreneur dreams and wants for their business -- having to implement them all, though, is an entirely different matter. While Google introduces new products left and right nowadays in order to make sure that they [url=http://topsniketrainersuk.webs.com/]Nike UK[/url] are so far ahead of their competition, a solo entrepreneur may forego sleeping altogether for months if he/she wants to move fast into the market. Not [url=http://cheapnikenz-sales.webs.com/]Nike Free Run[/url] to mention the fact that resources will always be an [url=http://cheapnikenz-sales.webs.com/]Nike Free Run[/url] issue! Nonetheless, it is worth keeping the above strategies in mind when thinking of how best you want to set your business apart from your competition and be ahead of the pack.
This is because a tankini fits more like a shirt, and no one will be able to notice if your torso is longer [url=http://upnikeaustralia01.webs.com/]Nike Shoes Australia[/url] or shorter than the model's. Sometimes [url=http://upnikeaustralia01.webs.com/]Nike Shoes Australia[/url] bikinis can ride up, or come off altogether. At any outing this would be an embarrassment. Whether you are going to a water park, riding white waters or simply having fun on the beach, a tankini is ideal choice for your situation.
Look at a pair of athletic shoes. While traditional shoes may be made of a single material such as canvas or suede leather, many athletic shoes have several materials such as lightweight plastic polymers, suede or synthetic suede, and mesh combined. These composite materials make the shoes light, flexible, durable and breathable. About two to three years ago, however, New Balance set out to make the upper part of a shoe without stitching. They use an iron press to bond a thin sheet [url=http://cheapnikenz-sales.webs.com/]Nike Free Run[/url] of hot melt film to the back of the material. Next, an ultrasonic welding assembly presses a pattern vamp into a suede material. Likewise, a similar ultrasonic welding machine presses the saddle eye row from another piece of synthetic suede. The vamp shape gets cut out of the suede. The saddle eye row and mesh material get welded ultrasonically to the vamp. In the processes, the frictional heat from the ultrasonic welder melts the hot melt film, which bonds the saddle eye row and the mesh material to the vamp. Not only do the ultrasonic welders distribute heat more evenly than iron presses, they also heat up and cool down faster.
