IT’S PUERTO RICO’S TURN NOW

DEFINITION

hedge fund
noun
plural noun: hedge funds
a limited partnership of investors that uses high risk methods, such as investing with borrowed money, in hopes of realizing large capital gains.

GoldSwirl

This is a huge crisis in Puerto Rico now.

The Island is financially broke.

The help it’s receiving from the “master” isn’t really helping.

It’s just setting the stage for continued pillage.

This may sound good but it really isn’t.

~House approves Puerto Rico debt-relief legislation~

The House on Thursday passed a bill that would create a financial control board to help Puerto Rico handle its finances, and let the island restructure some of its $70 billion in debt. The bipartisan 297-127 vote marked a victory for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who had urged conservative fellow Republicans to help pass the bill to keep the crisis from deepening.

Puerto Rico is due to make a $2 billion debt payment in three weeks.

“The Puerto Rican people are our fellow Americans,” Ryan said. “They pay our taxes, they fight in our wars. We cannot allow this to happen.”

This “JUNTA’S” real purpose is to make sure that the debtors are paid.

No real interest in the benefits of progress of Puerto Rico and it’s people.

Don’t be fooled!!

How Hedge Funds Deepen Puerto Rico’s Debt Crisis
Vulture investors have descended on the commonwealth, taking advantage of a debt crisis that has impoverished citizens and created massive unemployment.

By: David Dayen

In many ways, the Puerto Rico situation is sui generis, resulting from a patchwork of laws and obligations on an entity that is not really a country and not really a U.S. state. But looked at another way, Puerto Rico is just the latest battlefield for a phalanx of hedge funds called “vultures,” which pick at the withered sinews of troubled governments.

In Greece, Argentina, Detroit, and now Puerto Rico, vultures have bought distressed debt on the cheap, and then used coercion, threats, and legal action to secure a massive windfall, compounding the effects on millions of citizens.

The legal wrangling masks an irony: As creditors demand that Puerto Rico pay back everything it owes, hedge fund managers have used the island as a tax haven to avoid their own responsibilities. Wealthy investors don’t just want to make money in Puerto Rico; they want to use their leverage to effectively buy an island playground.

SANDERS ON PUERTO RICO

As far as I know, Senator Sanders has been the only presidential candidate to address Puerto Rico’s financial crisis in a sensible way.

He has even made it a point to mention and discuss the topic.

For that alone, I tend to think he’d make a better president.

I’m thinking here about my country.

Evem if he isn’t the nominee and the final candidate, I still know who I am voting for.

Seems to be, Senator Sanders has an idea of where Puerto Rico is located and what the current financial crisis means to millions of American citizens living in the Island.

I wish the one other candidate would be as seemingly interested as “Bernie”.

The third candidate doesn’t even count.

The solution to Puerto Rico’s debt crisis is not more austerity. The solution is more economic development, more jobs, and less poverty. This will lead to more businesses, an expanded tax base, and, in the long-term, less debt.

Unlike a bipartisan House of Representatives bill that would establish a federal oversight board to renegotiate the massive debt with investors, Sanders’ bill would create a “Reconstruction Finance Corporation of Puerto Rico” that would protect public pensioners from cutbacks and “concentrate losses among vulture funds,” according to a summary.

“It is morally reprehensible that Wall Street vulture funds are demanding that Puerto Rico fire even more teachers, close more schools, cut pensions and slash the minimum wage so that they can reap huge profits off the misery of the people of Puerto Rico,” Sanders said in a statement.

The term vulture funds is a derogatory reference to specialized investing in deeply discounted or distressed assets, typically bonds, by buying them up on the cheap in hopes of profiting on the expectation of a credit restructuring

Google Doodle for today …. “Winter Solstice” December 21, 2014!!


~~December 21, 2014~~ 

Winter Solstice 2014

a time of balancing – completing old business and welcoming in the New

Why Google has given the shortest day of the year a doodle?

Google has marked the shortest day of the year with an animated Doodle on its homepage.
The Doodle depicts a cartoon Father Christmas helping two children to build a snowman before the children’s mother appears and produces a carrot from her shopping bag to use as the snowman’s nose.

The winter solstice occurs when the sun’s daily maximum elevation in the sky is at its lowest and the North Pole is tilted furthest away from the sun. This results in the least number of daylight hours and the longest night of the year. This astronomical phenomenon occurs in December in the Northern Hemisphere and in June in the Southern Hemisphere.

The event has been marked by many cultures throughout history with festivals, rituals, celebrations and the mating of animals, and even today people gather at Stonehenge to watch the sunrise and sunset. The ancient stones are carefully aligned on a sight-line that points to the winter solstice sunset, and it is thought that this event was actually more important to those who constructed the site than the summer equivalent.

Let us open to the Beyond

Beyond our sense of separation

Beyond our egos, beyond our minds

Beyond our limitations, beyond our wounds, beyond the past

Beyond history, beyond stories and concepts

Beyond hopes and fears 

And simply open to encountering a new Divine Awareness

To guide our collective journey on planet Earth.

Touch all life everywhere … all beings, all creatures, all elements

Throughout all time and space.

Stamatis Spanoudakis (born December 11, 1948 in Athens, Greece) is a modern Greek classical composer. Early on he studied classical guitar. He went through a rock music phase, but then continued classical studies at the Würzburg State Conservatory with Bertold Hummel and later in Athens with Konstantinos Kydoniatis. Later on he studied Byzantine music.

MSoul

Stamatis Spanoudakis is widely regarded as the most prolific Greek composer of his age. Versatile in his music for film, television, records and concerts, he uses a rich and original musical palette that conjures up different perceptions in the sphere of musical imagery.

He explores both tragic and dramatic experiences with an eye and an ear for the musical representation of the perennial dilemmas and joys faced by mankind both in the past and present. To date, Stamatis has written concert works for rock groups, string orchestra, soloists and chorus. Future plans include compositions for wind, brass, tympani and percussion, adding to his fulsome output.

Concerts, including those at the George Enescu Hall (Bucharest), the Royal Albert Hall (London), and Beijin in China have proven his international reputation and set the seal on this remarkable artist’s achievement in bringing his unique brand of Greek music to the widest possible audience.

~~August 23, 2014~~

Today is a day where positive thoughts, bright light and healing energy are needed in this household. 

Music has always been a refuge and a comfort for me. It’s played a very important part in my life. Once again, I rely on music …. to make it through some rough spots.

This is a meaningful, triumphal, lyrical song that touches the heart and soothes the soul. There are a few versions of this song and they are all inspiring!

Msoul

Yanni’s “Aria” (from Yanni Live at the Acropoplis) is based on The Flower Duet, from the Léo Delibes opera Lakmé, and popularized by various British Airways TV commercials.

Lakmé is an opera in three acts by Léo Delibes to a French libretto by Edmond Gondinet and Philippe Gille, based on the 1880 novel Rarahu ou Le Mariage de Loti by Pierre Loti.

The subject of the opera was suggested by Gondinet as a vehicle for the American soprano Marie van Zandt. Delibes wrote the score during 1881-82. Like other French operas of the period, Lakmé captures the ambience of the Orient that was in vogue during the latter part of the nineteenth century; Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers and Massenet’s Le roi de Lahore being two other examples.

As noted above, this beautiful song was popularized by  various British Airways TV commercials.

Yanni Live at the Acropolis is the name of both an album and video by Greek composer Yanni, recorded live at the Herodes Atticus Theatre, Athens, Greece, on September 25, 1993, and released in 1994.

In a three-year television deal with PBS, the live television special was one of the top fundraising subjects for PBS, raising $13 million, with more than 750,000 home videos and more than 7 million albums sold worldwide. It has been seen in 65 countries by half a billion people, has almost continuously remained on the charts since its release, and is the second best-selling music video of all time.

This album peaked at #1 on “Billboard’sTop New Age Albums” chart and at #5 on the “Billboard 200” chart in the same year. The film received an Emmy nomination in 1994 for “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Lighting Direction (Electronic) for a Drama Series, Variety Series, Miniseries or a Special“. The corresponding concert tour of the year was “Yanni Live, The Symphony Concerts 1994“.

Sous le dome epais
Ou le blanc jasmin
A la rose s’assemble
Sur la rive en fleurs
Riant au matin

Viens, descendons ensemble.
Doucement glissons
De son flot charmant
Suivons le courant
Fuyant, dans

L’onde fremissante
D’une main nonchalante
Viens, gagnons le bord
Ou la souree dort

Et l’oiseau
L’oiseau chante
Sous le dome epais
Sous le blanc jasmin
Ah, descendons ensemble
