Moldovan President Igor Dodon is initiating the procedure of a consultative referendum because the parliament has blocked several of his initiatives, Dodon said. My second meeting with ambassadors of the former Soviet states accredited in Moldova was held today. During the meeting, we discussed a number of crucial issues in domestic and foreign policy. I informed ambassadors that the parliament had blocked a wide range of presidential initiatives, including on the repeal of the law on the payment of the embezzled billion at the expense of citizens, which has forced me to initiate the procedure of consultations with the people of the Republic of Moldova, Dodon said on Facebook. Dodon will present details of his new initiatives at a press conference in the evening, the presidential press service said. The president already said earlier that he intends to hold referendums on the repeal of the law on the order of repayment of $1 billion embezzled from the banking system, on the country's geopolitical vector, and on the issue of introducing amendments to the constitution to expand presidential powers.

What does it offer? At present the bank only offers savings accounts, but its low overheads mean it has been able to pay interest rates that have propelled it straight to the top of the best buy tables. As a result savers, desperate for a half-decent return on their cash, have quickly abandoned their old banking habits in order to download the app and open an account. But the stampede of new customers has left the bank having to cut rates to reduce the inflow of money. “After breaking the 2% interest barrier for a one-year bond in February Atom Bank cut it twice in a week, to 1.8 per cent and then 1.6 per cent,” reports The Times . In just 24 hours On 9 March, the last day on which people could sign up for its market-leading one-year bond before the rate fell , the bank gained 5,000 new customers. It’s an astonishing figure, especially when you consider that, “13 of Britain’s 44 building societies have fewer than 20,000 customers,” says Amelia Murray in The Telegraph .

5 billion euros. At the same time, Greece’s banking system has, among its assets, a long-term foreign bond portfolio totaling 55.7 billion euros. This totals almost 87 billion euros, which could be used as foreign currency reserves in the immediate aftermath of the departure from the Eurozone. Therefore, it is easy to understand that there is no chance of there being any shortages in the marketplace and that Greece’s needs would be met for several years to come. MPN: There is also the Greek public debt to contend with. Is this debt sustainable to begin with? What would you propose regarding dealing with the debt, and what does international law and international legal precedent have to say regarding what actions Greece could take regarding its debt? DK The Greek people have been purposefully led to believe that an “unsustainabledebt is one which is very difficult to repay, but which can, at some point and after the enactment of very strict measures, be repaid.

If you still haven't done any tax-saving investment and are looking for a safe and easy bet for saving tax then a tax-saving fixed deposit could be a solution. Tax-saving FD is one of the tax saving instruments where one can invest to save tax under section 80C of the Income Tax Act. One can invest in this FD easily by visiting a bank, filling the form and giving a cheque. In fact, if you place the FD in the same bank branch on which you are drawing the cheque then the transfer of funds can happen quickly and the investment can be done within a few hours. As the transfer of funds would be between accounts in the same bank branch, it can be done within say, 20 minutes (depending on bank staff efficiency) and you could walk out with your FD receipt within half an hour. Of course, this investment can be done online also provided you have access to net banking and are comfortable using it.

Adoption patterns IoT adoption is rapidly gaining traction in many industry sectors, as more transformative technologies and business applications become available. According to the participants, the top five fastest adopting sectors are: Technology, picked by 41% of respondents, then retail, banking and finance, manufacturing, and in fifth place, services; selected by just 22%. Interestingly, the slowest adopters included the healthcare, insurance and pharmaceutical industries, the public sector and finally oil and gas utilities, which were picked by just 10% of respondents. Of course, whilst these stats dont tell the full story, the suggestion is clear that variable patterns of adoption reveal fewer opportunities to apply the current thinking around IoT and integrate this new technology into existing operations. Why is this? First, it’s clear there’s an opportunity for channel IT solution providers to drive this growth, especially in those sectors which have been slower to take up these new, connected opportunities.

Again, no professional would/can argue an election is legitimate when there is nothing for anyone to count. The destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution , and in Orwellian inversion of limited government . Corporate media are criminally complicit through constant lies of omission and commission to cover all these crimes. Historic tragic-comic empire is only possible through such straight-face lying, making our Emperor's New Clothes analogy perfectly chosen. The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly instantly. Please read that twice. Now look to verify for yourself . Iran has never threatened to wipe Israel off the map and only has IAEA-verified legal energy and medicine programs with nuclear materials .
