While the European Commission predicted that "investment is expected to take off in 2017," the Fund concluded that "growth prospects remain weak and subject to high downside risks." Tsipras mocked "fool technocrats ... who can't even get their numbers right." Looking toward a possible early election, he added: "we are not going to ask anyone about giving surplus money to those most in need." His finance minister charged the IMF with "economizing with the truth." The deputy education minister, representing a small, right-wing coalition partner, charged that his country was being "blackmailed." Indeed, he added, "For centuries, Greeks have been mercilessly oppressed by the Westerners." Interest rates on Greek debt soared. Planned negotiations over debt relief, long demanded by Athens, were postponed. The Fund threatened to pull out of the program.

Yet you look at his scoring tonight, his top break is 48, it's way, way down on the levels he's produced earlier in the week. He's had three centuries. He's had two breaks of 50 plus as well against Ding.

Obviously that gave him a huge boost of confidence. He was more comfortable playing the shots he wanted to play. Marco played a wonderful part in this match as well. His fifth and sexth centuries -- sixth centuries. And that 141. He said, this week proved I am a very good player, but not quite a great one yet.

He made a break of 140. He has had five centuries so far this week. Yes, I think he made 11 or 12 and winning the Scottish Open before Christmas. He is just turning into a scoring machine. It is the biggest attribute you can have as a top snooker player to win frames like this on one visit on a regular basis.

22 centuries is great. Since the start of the Championships, it's an extraordinary strike rate over the last few weeks? Heaviest scoring as anybody in the game. Nobody would have got as many as that. Even people winning tournaments.

Break-building is phenomenal. Only nine people have made over 400 centuries in the sport, he's one of them. He's just been lacking the final ingredient to make the cake exactly what it should have been. I think confidence is it and he's never played better snooker than he is now at 39.

Unlucky. Almost. APPLAUSE. Ronnie missed that blue and that was the end of the frame. Marco Fu leads 1-0. This heavy scoring has been the hallmark of mar coast' game of late. I was totting it up, since the start of the Championship he's knocked in 21 centuries in 17 matches on his way to winning the Scottish Open and he was on track there for a fifth century of the week.

So the black is the first frame. Century in the first frame. Such a fantastic scorer, Marco Fu. APPLAUSE. He's on 31 centuries so far this season. The kiss on the black is OK.

Lower-level officials for dozens of big city mayors in America the Democratic strongholds that Breitbart News first demonized and branded as sanctuary cities for useful propaganda purposes are quietly preparing for the potential loss of federal funding should their bosses decide not to turn over millions of illegal immigrants to federal police officials. We dont know who will be rounded up and deported, or whether anyone will. But these city officials know their budgets are at risk because their communities, like the Catholic Church centuries ago, have been vilified as places that provide sanctuary to enemies of the state and criminals simply because theyve pledged to honor due process and basic civil rights. The president has said he only wants to deport 3 million illegal immigrants who are criminals.

This open source format — which allows for debatecomes in direct opposition to the mainstream media, which acts like an authority figure telling people what to think. The Collision Between Mainstream and Alternative Media The information war between the two is really the result of two things: a disgruntled public that has been lied to for centuries, and the dawn of the Internet which has created a platform for the free flow of information all over the globe. As a result, the buried truths of the past and obfuscated realities of the present are rising to the surface and being exposed by the alternative media. This is scaring the hell out to the establishment media, since it’s their job to keep the current power structure afloat. If the present trend continues at its current pace, then it’s only a matter of time before alternative media becomes the dominant force in mainstream consciousness.

The river banks were once a war zone between Israel and Jordan, and were littered with thousands of mines and unexploded ordnance. The two neighbours made peace in 1994 but it took many years before some mine clearing began. Both claim that the site where John the Baptist and Jesus met is on their side of the river. The Gospel of John refers to Bethany beyond the Jordan without further details. In 2002, Jordan opened its site, showing remains of ancient churches and writings of pilgrims down the centuries to bolster its claim. UNESCO declared it a World Heritage Site in 2015. The site in the Israeli-occupied West Bank opened in 2011 and has stairs for pilgrims to descend into the muddy river. It has more visitors than the Jordanian site but its churches, mostly built in the 1930s, has remained strictly off-limits. The Halo Trust, a Scottish-based charity that has cleared minefields worldwide and was once sponsored by the late Princess Diana, is looking to raise $4 million to make the western site safe.

I think it is a wonderful thing that United States in all of these years over the centuries can have this transfer of power peacefully and calmly and legitimately. I think it is very exciting.

Millet cereals were domesticated in the region as early as 10,000 years ago, and were the primary crop of Yangshao cultures. Wheat, barley, and soybeans were introduced to the region after the end of Yangshao, around 4,000 years ago, although archaeological traces of them remain low for centuries. According to historical records, they were thought to be inferior foods, suitable only for protecting the poor against famine. That only changed around 2,000 years ago, when improved technological methods made it easier to refine them. Read 8 remaining paragraphs | Comments
