The time has arrived where we must understand the realities of the dark forces amongst us.

WATCH-IT 101

“Financial crisis” is a broad term that encompasses many types of crises.


A public debt crisis occurs when a government is unable to fully comply with its debt service obligations vis-à-vis either domestic or external creditors.

Such a crisis is thus associated with budgetary imbalances that have become unsustainable.


An external debt crisis originates from a country’s overall inability to service its debt owed to external creditors. It is therefore associated with an external transfer problem.

This may reflect either private or public domestic imbalances.


A currency crisis is characterized by a sudden drop in the value of the domestic currency, well below a level justified by the country’s macroeconomic fundamentals.

It is usually triggered by perceptions and market expectations that affect capital movements.


Finally, a banking crisis happens when a significant segment of a country’s banking sector is either insolvent or is subject to a generalized panic.


these different types of crises are closely related to each other: one type of crisis often is the cause of the other. Indeed, the other types of crises may interact with, and actually lead to public debt crises.

Four suspects speed off in police car

Saturday, 17 September 2011 02:00

http://www.herald.co.zw/index.php?optio ... Itemid=130

FOUR suspected housebreakers left alone in a police car with the engine running simply drove off with it on Thursday while the police who had arrested them chased their accomplice.

The four were still missing, but the car - a Toyota Mark II - was found dumped near Beatrice
yesterday.

The police did chase the Toyota Mark II in a Mazda 323, but that ran out of fuel before it closed in on the first car.

The escape was the conclusion of an otherwise highly successful police operation launched by Mabelreign Police Station to break and arrest a gang of housebreakers that had been a serious nuisance in northwest Harare.

Witnessing the Transition to Fear in Tripoli, Libya

By Lizzie Phelan -Guest Columnist- | Last updated: Sep 16, 2011 - 12:11:53 AM

A Wafalla woman from the tribe's area of Bani Walid—she knew that she and her family could be rounded up at any second, simply because of the Wafalla's steadfast backing of what they call their “guide”—Muammar Gadhafi.

She told me, “Bani Walid people have always been very proud, generous, humble and dignified people.

Under that (the rebel) flag of King Idris, we had to kiss the feet of the king before we could say a word to him, we have gone back to those times.”

Turkey: We don't need U.S. mediation to end crisis with Israel

http://www.haaretz.com/news/diplomacy-d ... l-1.385040

Speaking to AFP on Saturday, [Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet] Davutoglu rejected the notion that the U.S. would be able to sway Turkey to back down on its hostilities toward Israel, saying: "We do not need mediation ... for Israel in any way."

"There is no such situation in which mediation is needed. The demands of Turkey are clear," Davutoglu added, referring to Turkey's long-standing demand that Israel apologize for the raid as well as pay compensation to the families of the nine Turks killed in the incident.
