There has been grumbling, mainly in Europe, about earlier U.S. financial sanctions on Iran that overseas bankers found heavy-handed, but Paulson is right that some of Iran’s former financial partners have already distanced themselves from Tehran under hardline President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Paulson and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice announced the penalties together, a recognition that a year-old effort to levy unilateral Treasury sanctions has had far greater effect than the diplomatic channels Rice has pursued with Iran. “Unfortunately the Iranian government continues to spurn our offer of open negotiations, instead threatening peace and security,” through its nuclear program and export of ballistic missiles, Rice said, along with what she charged is backing for militants in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories. WASHINGTON – The United States announced harsh new penalties on the Iranian military and state-owned banking systems Thursday, raising pressure on the world financial system to cut ties with a regime the West accuses of bankrolling terrorism and seeking a nuclear bomb. The U.S. sanctions on elements of Iran’s vast armed forces and its largest bank are the most sweeping since 1979, when the takeover of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran ruptured diplomatic, business and military ties. The sanctions are the first of their type imposed by the United States specifically against the armed forces of another government. They are part of the Bush administration’s two-track approach to its chief adversary in the Mideast that offsets diplomatic overtures with sanctions, bellicose rhetoric and the implicit threat of military action. U.S. officials insisted Thursday that the new moves do not hasten war and that the United States remains committed to finding a way to talk Iran out of a nuclear program the U.S. claims is hostile. The latest sanctions will cut off more than 20 Iranian entities, including individuals and companies owned or controlled by the powerful Revolutionary Guard Corps, from the American financial system. State-owned Bank Melli, Bank Mellat and Bank Saderat were named supporters of global terrorist groups for their activities in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Middle East. Any assets found in the United States belonging to the designated groups must be frozen. Americans are also prohibited from doing business with those designated organizations. Bank Melli is Iran’s largest. The United States says it provides services to Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs. Bank Mellat serves the state Atomic Energy Organization and Bank Saderat routs money to terrorist or militant groups, the administration said. The administration did not lay out any new evidence for the allegations. The designations put companies outside the United States on notice that doing business with the designated groups could put them at risk of U.S. financial penalty.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgThe Donegal Youth Service, Beyond Borders Project in partnership with the Milford Community Youth Project and funded by the International Fund For Ireland Community Bridges program are working with young people from Milford and Carrickmore to stage MOXEGEN a non alcoholic community event for all ages.MOXEGEN takes place on Saturday the 7th of July. The event will take place from 3pm to 10pm at Moyleview Park in Milford. Young people from both North and South of the border have taken part in the planning, running and execution of this event, with help from Beyond Borders workers to ensure that it is a day not to be missed. There is a jam packed set of activities, including Glamorous Grannies, Bonny Babies, Bouncy Castles, Rodeo bulls, local bands, dancers, a disco, a BBQ, and a music concert, featuring young people from Omagh, Milford, Falcarragh and Letterkenny.

The music will be presented in co-operation with Goof’s Gaf Live; a free original music promotion channel which allows local artists to exhibit their talent.Moxegen was planned with young people from Milford and Carrickmore in Omagh. They took part in a residential at the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh. The residential got young people together from different backgrounds and gave them an opportunity to socialise and have fun in a safe environment. One of the main aims of the residential was to get young people planning or thinking about what to do at their community event, and these pictures give some idea of what went on during in their residential.Said a spokesman: “When you’re older, people will ask you where were you on the 7th of July, when MOXEGEN was taking place, don’t be a fool, tell them you were right in the middle of it.”  FORGET OXEGEN – MILFORD HAS MOXEGEN! was last modified: June 26th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:FORGET OXEGEN – MILFORD HAS MOXEGEN!last_img read more

first_imgCurrently I’m down in Cork city, and when here I’m trying to absorb as much of the fabulous Horticulture which exists here. The mild climate here, combined with warm soils, allows for many unusual and tender plants to flourish here which our climate in the North West wouldn’t be as hospitable for them.Also the light levels here during the year are amongst the highest in Ireland and the Autumn colours are amazing, from the grounds of Blarney to Fitzgerald Park, Fota and down through Cobh the colours on the trees have been amazing!One tree which is standing out here and which also does very well in our own part of the world if the fabulous Sweetgum tree, Liquidambar styraciflua. In the summer months these Sweetgum tree are nice shaped trees, narrow in growth, so ideal for smaller gardens, although listed as being tall growing in our climate they make a nice Medium sized tree – ideally planted as a specimen in the lawn or as a focal point, but I’ve seen them used in Avenues and they work well too, especially in larger sweeping gardens.Corky wings on stems of sweetgum trees are interesting in winter!Photo taken September 2010. Copyright Jeremy Stovall.Like any plant you grow for autumn foliage the colourful foliage remains as long as the wind and weather plays ball, so in years when the wind howls you’ll have a shorter period to enjoy, but in years like this when all the stars align the colour is fab!Once the foliage has fallen the stems have a corky nature to them and the stem has nice colouration, both can be admired well up close in smaller gardens.Although unusual sounding Sweetgum trees are easily sourced in your local garden centre, and don’t be put off if they look a bit ‘twiggy’ when you buy one, once planted the tree quickly establishes and within a few short seasons you’ll have a tree shaping up nicely!

first_imgGordhan said that he and Marcus had agreed that an ongoing assessment, discussion and commentary about the Reserve Bank’s monetary policy by analysts and those in the public, was constructive for the emergence of “social consensus” in this area in the long run. The government has no plans to fix the rand to a pre-determined exchange rate, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan said in his maiden Budget speech in Parliament, Cape Town on Wednesday, adding that the Reserve Bank would continue to pursue an inflation target of between 3% and 6%. 17 February 2010 He pointed out that long-term measures to make the rand more competitive included ensuring a lower wage inflation, running lower budget deficits, building larger reserves and developing a “more flexible and dynamic economy”. “[South African Reserve Bank] Governor [Gill] Marcus and I have agreed that monetary policy should be conducted in a consistent and transparent manner within a flexible inflation targeting framework,” Gordhan said, adding that the Reserve Bank would take a more central role in ensuring financial stability. Stimulating investment Turning to the rand, Gordhan said: “We agreed that we need a stable and competitive real exchange rate, though in today’s world this cannot be translated into a straightforward fixed price of the rand.” The interest rate is currently at 7%, while CPI inflation declined from a peak of 13.6% in August 2008 to 6.3% in December last year, as petrol prices fell and food prices moderated.center_img This in turn stimulates investment, employment and competitiveness, particularly among exporters and those industries relying on imports. “We have therefore agreed with the Reserve Bank that we will continue to take steps to counter the volatility of the exchange rate and to lean against the wind during periods of rapid capital inflows, including reserve accumulation and further exchange control reform.” While a low inflation rate can help guard the living standards of the poor, the government argues that a lower and stable rate of inflation reduces the long-term cost of borrowing and provides confidence about the future. ‘Stable, competitive, real exchange rate’ He said the government was concerned that rapid capital inflows that may be required to sustain investment spending have the unintended consequence of appreciating the currency.

first_imgTags:#Google#news#Real-Time Web#RSS & Feeds#RSS Readers#web Related Posts Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Update: Our original reporting was based on the increased speed we and other bloggers noticed yesterday. We have now received confirmation from a Google spokesperson that our informed guess was indeed correct. Google will post an update about this news in the next few days. We have updated this post to reflect this new development.From Slow to Real TimeBloggers and readers started to complain about Google Reader’s delays shortly after Google launched the service in its current form, but until today, Google hadn’t really done anything to address these complaints. Google began to publish real-time feeds for shared Google Reader items in August 2009. Until now, however, Google did not consume the real-time updates from PubSubHubbub-enabled feeds, even though most of Google’s own blogs and FeedBurner now publish in real time. Google’s App Engine, too, offers support for PubSubHubbub and some of the most popular real-time notifications bots are hosted on App Engine. It’s important to note that these real-time updates (assuming our observations and those from other bloggers turn out to be true) will only work for PubSubHubbub-enabled blogs. One of the major problem with Google Reader is that it pings relatively obscure feeds very infrequently and this won’t change anytime soon if these feeds don’t support real-time updates yet.How to Enable PubSubHubbub on Your BlogIf you use WordPress and want to enable PubSubHubbub on your own blog, you can do so by installing the PubSubHubbub Wodpress plugin. By default, every blog on Blogger and Posterous already supports PubSubHubbub. Update: we mistakenly reported that WordPress.com blogs use the PubSubHubbub protocol, but WordPress.com actually uses the rssCloud format, which Google doesn’t currently support.If you’re using Feedburner to manage your RSS feeds, you can also turn on Google’s PingShot service and sent out PubSubHubbub announcements in real time. A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… frederic lardinois We just received confirmation from Google that Google Reader now consumes PubSubHubbub feeds in real time. Until now, it often took half an hour or longer before new posts from popular blogs and news sites would appear in Google Reader. Now, however, posts from PubSubHubbub-enabled feeds (including our own RSS feed) have started to appear in Google Reader almost immediately after they are published. 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
