The crisis according to Varoufakis

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram It was standing-room only at the Lonsdale Street headquarters of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria on Tuesday, as political economist Yanis Varoufakis shared his thoughts on the Greek crisis, why no such thing existed, and by the way – how to escape it. The lecture – based upon Varoufakis’ contention that the eurozone is in its final death-throes amidst a wider global economic conflagration – was fittingly the last event to be presented at GOCMV’s current headquarters, before it too succumbs to the bulldozers. For those who have followed his many utterances as a TV news analyst and online in recent years, it was vintage Varoufakis – eloquent, strident claims of the imminent destruction of the eurozone, within an overarching narrative of the drastic shortcomings of globalised capitalism. Greece is a sideshow – a victim of disreputable bankers propped up by the EU which for Varoufakis is a fatally flawed institution, without the internal systems – and more importantly without the political will – for member states with surpluses to support other states who have deficits. To begin, he asked his audience to reflect on whether the current economic and social problems in Greece should be described as a crisis at all. He pointed to the winter of 1941-1942, when over a hundred thousand Greeks died of starvation, and the 1974 invasion of Cyprus, as crises worthy of the name. “Greece is experiencing an existentialist catastrophe” he said. “It would be just as silly to talk about the Greek crisis today, as it would be to speak of ‘the Tasmanian crisis’ in the 1930s. “The Greek people today are part of a general crisis, of which Greece is but an interesting, sad and tragic part,” said Varoufakis. He spoke with few notes, repeating an agenda he has been espousing for some time: how the Greek, eurozone and global economic crises should be viewed as a kind of wooden Russian doll – each the offspring of the other. “But we Greeks were one million percent responsible for Greece being the first domino to fall,” said the former advisor to PASOK, admitting that a large chunk of responsibility for the current situation lay with Greece’s political elites over decades. Varoufakis, who worked for George Papandreou between 2004 and 2006, said the question was not whether Greece would or should leave the euro, but rather, when would Germany make up its mind, if Germany itself wishes to remain in the euro? The EU’s demand for austerity measures to be fulfilled – in order for Greece to continue to receive bailout funds – was torture, a case of “waterboarding” he said. “Germany knows the austerity measures will not work, but it applies them because it is making its own mind up about whether it wants to remain in the euro. “I say to Germany, make it up,” said Varoufakis to widespread applause. Then it was over to Q and A’s. The audience was largely warm and referential to the former University of Sydney lecturer, with only one or two dissenting voices, suggesting that the globe-trotting economist might be prone to “a selectivity of facts”. According to his critics, Varoufakis’ “modest proposals” as he refers to them, are based on his beliefs which some say are a mix of utopian socialism and a cautious neo-Keynesianism. His most vocal detractors accuse him of being light on concrete suggestions for development, and too often when talking about Greece, deliberately choosing to avoid the immense dysfunctionality of its economy and the reasons for it. He did offer three suggestions for escaping the crisis and saving the eurozone. “You don’t need federation, and you don’t need to torture people [with austerity],” said Varoufakis defiantly. “What you do need to do is get rid of the national banking systems, make the European Central Bank take part of the debt of member states – debts which can’t ever be serviced – and make this debt disappear, and an investment policy is needed to resuscitate the [European] economy.” As audience members filed down the dimly-lit stairs of the GOCMV building (the lift had decided not to function properly on the last, busiest night of its existence), each reflected on Varoufakis’ analysis and wish-list for action, hoping that the GOCMV building and Greece, will rise from their respective ashes, phoenix-like in the not too distant future. If only the reconstruction of a nation’s economy was as simple as laying bricks and mortar.last_img read more

Trump jokes about bald spot

first_imgUS president Donald Trump jokingly fixes his hair as he speaks at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) at National Harbor, Maryland, US, 23 February, 2018. Photo: ReutersUS president Donald Trump made a rare public comment on his enigmatic straw mane Friday, jokingly admitting that he suffers from male-pattern hair loss — a bald spot.”I try like hell to hide that bald spot folks, I work hard,” Trump quipped during a speech to conservatives just outside Washington, in an unusual flash of self-deprecating humor.”It doesn’t look bad, hey, we’re hanging in,” he added, giving a swirl to the cheering audience.Trump’s elaborate combing regimen has long been the butt of jokes and speculation.A tell-all book about Trump’s White House claimed his daughter Ivanka was in the habit of describing the mechanics of the combover to friends:”An absolutely clean pate — a contained island after scalp-reduction surgery — surrounded by a furry circle of hair around the sides and front, from which all ends are drawn up to meet in the center and then swept back and secured by a stiffening spray.”last_img read more

Researcher finds missing link between ancient toothed whales and modern baleen whales

first_imgEvolution of mysticete skull features linked to feeding, based on the phylogeny in the study of Fitzgerald. Cetacean artwork by C. Buell. Image (c) Biology Letters, doi:10.1098/rsbl.2011.0690 More information: Archaeocete-like jaws in a baleen whale, Biology Letters, Published online before print August 17, 2011, doi:10.1098/rsbl.2011.0690AbstractThe titanic baleen whales (Cetacea, Mysticeti) have a bizarre skull morphology, including an elastic mandibular symphysis, which permits dynamic oral cavity expansion during bulk feeding. How this key innovation evolved from the sutured symphysis of archaeocetes has remained unclear. Now, mandibles of the Oligocene toothed mysticete Janjucetus hunderi show that basal mysticetes had an archaeocete-like sutured symphysis. This archaic morphology was paired with a wide rostrum typical of later-diverging baleen whales. This demonstrates that increased oral capacity via rostral widening preceded the evolution of mandibular innovations for filter feeding. Thus, the initial evolution of the mysticetes’ unique cranial form and huge mouths was perhaps not linked to filtering plankton, but to enhancing suction feeding on individual prey. Citation: Researcher finds missing link between ancient toothed whales and modern baleen whales (2011, August 18) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-08-link-ancient-toothed-whales-modern.html Explore further © 2011 PhysOrg.com (PhysOrg.com) — Erich Fitzgerald, an Australian paleontologist, believes he has found the missing link between ancient toothed whales that caught and ate fish and modern baleen whales that eat by sucking in huge volumes of water and then filter out the krill and shrimp in it. Australian fossil unlocks secrets to the origin of whales This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. In his paper, published in the Royal Society journal, Biology Letters, Fitzgerald describes the skeletal remains of Janjucetus hunderi, named for the beach where the original jaw bone was found; “cetus” Greek, for whale and Staumm Hunder, the youngster who found the fragment. More recently, Fitzgerald discovered that amateur fossil hunter Brian Crichton had more such bones enabling him to build a more complete picture of the ancient (25 million year old) creature.Fitzgerald suggests that modern baleen whales, a class of whales that use a filter called a baleen to filter food from sea water, evolved from toothed fish eaters to the modern giants we now see, via the Janjucetus, a creature about the size of a contemporary dolphin, but one that had a very different jaw structure.Baleen whales, a class that include the Blue Whale, the largest animal known to have ever existed, have a jaw that is not fused in front, allowing it to flex and expand so that it can draw in huge amounts of water when lunging at a mass of krill. Ancient whales on the other hand, had jaws very much like dolphins, or even humans for that matter. They opened their mouths and grabbed fish swimming by, using their teeth as mini harpoons, much as Killer Whales do today. Janjucetus falls somewhere in-between; it has a jaw that is fused in front but the upper jaws are inordinately wide, and its snout is short. Also, its mouth is proportionately big for its body. Fitzgerald theorizes that all of these characteristics put together indicate that Janjucetus captured and ate its prey differently than both its early ancestors and its modern counterpart. Instead of grabbing fish as they came by, Janjucetus sucked in the water surrounding them, pulling them in with it, then chomped down to capture them.It’s this early sucking, or “hovering” as Fitzgerald describes it, that after several million years, led to the un-fusing of the jaw, the gradual loss of teeth and the appearance of the baleen.last_img read more

Guy goes out there and kicks it 75 yards, but, yeah, it’ll come down to this game.”Follow Craig Grialou on Twitter (AP Photo) Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires You’ve been forced to play receivers in the past?“Yeah. We need you to play soon and with an injury in training camp you’re playing a lot either in four wides or three wides.”Chad Williams is obviously in that other category?“Yeah, but I think if an injury happened he’d be ready. Once you get into game-plans that offense shrinks so much. You just study 100 plays rather than 1,000 plays and you’re practicing and it’s so much easier for you.”How is Mike Iupati?“He’s doing fine.”Is he doing anything this week?“Uh no. He was out at practice and just ran.”Do you like having just one roster cut?“I love the new rule in the fact that—look at what Denver’s situation is right now with Paxton Lynch hurt. Having four quarterbacks still, that’s the hard decision when you go to 75 is to keep that fourth guy for this game so you don’t have to put somebody back in the game in case there was an injury. It happened to us in Denver two years ago. We dressed one tight end, he got hurt, I think, the fifth play of the game and there was no way I was putting anybody back in the game so we just played four wide receivers the whole game.”How do you assess Blaine Gabbert? TEMPE, Ariz. – Head coach Bruce Arians, now in his fifth year with the Arizona Cardinals, meets the media each day during training camp.Here, in this space, we’ll highlight many of the key topics and personnel conversations he has with reporters following the morning walk-through; or in today’s case, practice as the team has broken camp and returned to its facility in Tempe.“Alright, we obviously had split practices today. We had a good outdoor session. More about finding out the real condition we’re in. Trying to get 40 plays in pretty quickly in the heat. Went very, very well. Have to go in and watch the other practice on tape. I was outside.” “Short term, it’s been amazing how he could grasp this much information and go play with it fast. Have kept it to where he could play fast in games. In practices it’s a little slower in that you’re throwing everything at him, but I’ve been very pleased with him. Short-term, I’d be very comfortable if he had to play for us. Long-term, if he continues at this rate, he could be a starter.”How will you use your quarterbacks this week?“Blaine will play sparingly in the first quarter and then Trevor (Knight) will take the rest of the game.”How is calling plays this week?“Harold (Goodwin).”How is Nkemdiche?“He’s doing fine.”What do you think of the way Evan Boehm has taken the bull by the horns at right guard?“Yeah, very pleased with him. He got his ass chewed out pretty good today because he wasn’t ready to practice at that speed that everybody else was, and he learned a good lesson.”Has Gabbert done anything that’s surprised you?“Yeah, the amount of information that he could get in and get out. It’s one thing to get it in, other guys just can’t process it. The amount he can get in and process it has been amazing.”Do you think in the right situation he can be a successful starting quarterback in the NFL?center_img 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling With final cuts coming, how do you handle making those decisions?“It’s the worst day in the year. I really can equate it to death in the family sometimes. You get so close to these guys, you work so hard with them and you know it’s a dream that hopefully is not ending. It might continue with another team but a lot of them it’s ending. So, yeah, it’s a very hard day and if it’s a guy that’s been in the organization for us for awhile, I do it personally.”How difficult is it this year with just one cut from 90 to 53?“It’s going to be a hectic day. We’ll bump our team meeting back an hour than when we normally have it just so that we can get everything done before the team meeting.”Any player that perhaps has come out of nowhere to really impress you?“Carlton (Agudosi) has done very, very well. If he doesn’t make the team, he has a chance to be possibly on the practice squad. I don’t think there’s anybody that surprised me knowing what talent on this roster. And really nobody has disappointed either.”You’ve had success drafting wide receivers in the third round. Why do some have immediate success versus others who might need more time?“Opportunity. Really it’s opportunity. You take some for now and then you’re picking some for later, within a year to learn from a guy knowing that it’s possibly going to end for that guy that next year so you’re trying to fill it in. Like Robert (Nkemdiche) and Calais (Campbell). It’s the same thing for the wideouts.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more
