This topic about Austerity as a solution for the banking sectors in Europe

George Osborne and Christine Lagard

George Osborne and Christine Lagard

is quite bizarre. As you will see George Osbourne is very lucky thanks to his friends in Europe. The International monetary fund thanks to Madeleine Lagarde who has helped George in the political games.

Good sportsmanship always starts with good relationships and what better way to bond then on TV or YouTube. Politicians have been taking steps closer to bankers in a bid to find out more about what’s in the kitty. For years now banks have done business for all kinds of people. This exchange of cash is what keeps the world round. By printing more money the money bankers hold for people will depreciate just like it did in South America all those years ago.

As money moves hands the banks and governments share notes. Its these types of transactions that give room for people to make money. Most people know this stuff and these banking stories originated in other countries.
The first place you look to find out more about banks in-order to understand austerity is the USA. The banks were a safe place for people to hold the money available not long after the wild wild west. Much of which was raised at a time when no one knew what was right and wrong. Just like then know-body seems to know today.
In the article you see before you you can find out the exchange of papers between Madeleine and George as Europe shares notes, not banking notes silly although it does have something to do with the International Monetary Fund.

Blind Art And Democracy in Syria Gassed Massacre with John Singer Sargent

Welcome, today’s post we take a look at democracy in the eyes of portrait painter John Singer Sargent. Fiona Graham-Mackay made a visit to the Imperial War Museum again and as an artist has singled out the Gassed painting. She gives her reason why and they are very interesting reasons. One of them is massacre around the world, for example what is happening in Syria and the other reasons are related to how the financial economy works.

Blind Art And Democracy in Syria Gassed Massacre with John Singer Sargent

As you will see the economy has always worked this way, war and massacre has been around for a long time and the pressing questions about Democracy and peace are not as easy to answer as what you might think. Gassed is simply therefore the blind leading the blind, creativity in essence gives time for us to reflect on todays’s problems and artists like John Singer Sargent are best remembered not only for the great paintings but also the methods used to make such interesting works of art. More importantly why art like this is so important part of reflecting any such massacre like the sensitive news from Syria and the difficult problems arising in the world’s economy.

Syria – The Artist Who Tells the Truth through the Eyes of the Blind. Fiona Graham-Mackay writes from London. Power, society, art and politics are cleverly incorporated into today’s shared post. The Imperial War Museum is a hub for information about war and Fiona Mackay incorporates her visit to the Imperial War Museum to explore her thoughts about Democracy.

Fiona is an artist writer who in this week’s entry looks at the Massacre that has happened throughout history. Syria is currently reporting many losses of life and for many this type of news is difficult to take on board. Art is one way many people explore the reasons and find comfort in Art. John Singer Sergeant is one such famous artist amongst many that draw upon the explanations seen in this week’s article. Please join in the conversation by leaving any comments. If inclined you can also engage in a similar way over on face book. Better still you can follow on Twitter. You can see the recent tweets down below.

Blind leading the blind by John Sargent

Blind leading the blind and Gassed paintings by John Sargent.

John Singer Sargent is a famous American portrait painter who learned his craft in Paris here is a portrait painting of him found online. In London you can find his works in the Tate or The National Portrait Museum. Below is a map with the many museums of London. Why not visit today and see what inspiration and other creativity develops in you. The interesting thing about John Singer Sargent is that most of his clientele came from bankers in the late 19th century. He would paint the bankers wives for a reasonable sum of money. His paintings have interesting swirly, gassed backgrounds and he focused on the individual’s art rather than the landscape. Sargent is well known for is vigorous brush strokes and perhaps the link is related to his work back then with the boys who were Stirring Trouble Internationally 1890 onwards, who knows?

The Row About Security At The Olympics Misses One Point: No One Needs These Games

The Row About Security At The Olympics Misses One Point: No One Needs These Games

The social media fans here in Britain have started a campaign to highlight the price of security. This weeks post explores the up and coming Olympics here in London. We take another good look at the logo and also examine what other people have been piping on about the costs and other things.

This is actually another satirical rant at the cost of security. It also examines what you will be getting for your money this year. Here in the UK we are very lucky to have the Olympics, security guards are over the moon, many of them may not know what they are doing. Also lots of people have been feeling quite sleepy lately, but that’s OK because the army have been scripted in to ensure there is no trouble this year.

The main thing to understand this year is that everything has or will be paid. The bill amounts to about 300 million. The last country who held the Olympics was Greece, they had an expensive opening ritual which was great but must have cost quite a lot too. Here in Britain you can find out what to expect, and by reading this post you will be able to prepare yourself for this years shenanigans.
Yeah, sure, security at the Olympics is very important. But who needs these Games in the first place?
The more people who turn up with tickets the better.

  • Many people like the security guards have tickets, but they just to lazy to get up for work.
  • Maybe you need to hire the army too.
  • Is this you? Are you as lazy as the Olympic security?
  • Who do you trust more to ensure there is no trouble an army or the security team?
  • Perhaps its normal for both to be there.

Anyone who gets to watch the Olympics this year are very lucky, that said prepare yourself. You have been warned. In earlier post we have already told you what type of people these types of events attracts. Pick pockets, call girls and many more.

Not sure about where to sit at the Olympics you might want to go over to the website and find all about it there.

Syria Is At War. Little Chance Of Finding A Solution Now

President Assad Announcement of War

President Announces War in Syria

The latest global news from what president Assad said recently

According to the Syrian Arab News Agency President al-Assad said : Syria built its policy on national and a popular compass, They also pointed out that President al-Assad presides over a first session of a new type of government. A new government so they say which is communicating with its citizens with a transparency before never used. The main news this week was when President Bashar al-Assad said on video Syria at War. Assad TV channel attacked, From European sources they concentrated on the ‘Syria at war’ thing that president Assad declared Syria in a state of war.

In America Bloomberg’s today follows the angle from U.S. official’s that Russia must abandon Syria President Assad Before Talks, New Syrian cabinet ministers sworn in before President Bashar al-Assad.

Now ITV News took the european approach of highlighting that President Bashar al-Assad: said about living in a real state of war’. From the more mainstream American news reports singled out that Syrian general, soldiers defected to Turkey, And squeezed the lemon more by saying this is an example of the latest peice to abandon President Bashar Assad.

Previously in the news this month Syrian President Assad issued a decree forming new government, which is more American spin. Meanwhile in Syrian Arab news which is a bit closer to the conflict reported President al-Assad Issues Decree No. 210 on Formation of New Government Headed by Dr. Riyad. The unusually popular Huffington Post singled out Putin for identifying that Is ‘Not Locked In To Assad Remaining Syria’s President’, The source they used was David Cameron. And finally President al-Assad decreed establishing a veterinary medicine faculty that is affiliated with a Damascus University in Daraa.

A regime in Syria

Syria violence kills 29, regime as the forces stormed Douma. Syria violence kills 83, regime troops storm Douma. I am on the fence with which one source is correct I imagine the second is more accurate. Interestingly the lower number reported was much more closer to the real conflict. So again this could be an example of dumbing down the situation, or perhaps overly exaggerating the carnage.

One interesting question bookmarked this month was asking is this a return of the ancient regime? A question posed today by local sources that browsed the point of view they think is united in ideology against the regime. India however is concentrating on the after effects by saying ‘most of the services will become expensive from tomorrow under new tax’ from their own India Times and the current neighbourly troubles.

An Anti regime, the changeover and other global news

Anti-regime shouts fill streets in Bahrain for the ouster of Al Khalifa. The local news highlighted the warning about the subsidy regime changeover which sounds a bit like the passover. Which is not very funny but interesting just the same. This type of shocking news as you can clearly see differs in interpretations. This is why global news is so popular.

In conclusion Syrian regime and the anti regime change no easy matter. Well we can clearly see this to be true and the world powers earlier this month did agree to the Syria deal, US eyes post-Assad regime and they confuse the students by making them answer the silly question in assignments this week: will regime or anti regime shed fear of student power? Pointless exercise.
