EUROLand / Economic Affairs / Ageing Europeans need to work longer and expect less, report says

Insider on EU Healthcare

There is no sign of uncertainty in the eurozone. There is only the smell of burning, and the sound of propaganda. | A diary of deception and distortion

But Rank Double Standard of the day went to Netherlands Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager, who loftily opined that,"Greece has no option but to reform and to repay (its debts) and if it doesn't do that, it will be a very serious problem, not just for Greece, but for everyone."

‘The truth is that here in the Netherlands, the situation for us Greeks is not much better either. We do not have the same rights as the Dutch doctors. They have offered me a job for 2 days per week which would earn me barely enough to survive, provided that I will work the rest 3 days for free, plus I would have to be involved in their research programmes for free.’

You see, “our United Europe is about helping each other within the safety of an unbreakable bond of solidarity against the real enemy”. (Dr Josef Goebbels, 1943)


Wilders sleept Staat voor rechter om eurofonds - Binnenland | Het laatste nieuws uit Nederland leest u op [binnenland] - It's a deal: five party coalition finalises Dutch austerity package (update)

The minority coalition and three other parties have finalised their plans to cut the Dutch budget deficit to below 3%. 'We've done it,' finance minister Jan Kees de Jager told reporters after Tuesday night's talks. 'It was a team performance.' The five parties had put the needs of the country before their own, he said. The deal includes ‚ā¨12bn worth of cuts and tax increases, plus ‚ā¨1bn in extra spending. Details have not been made public, but the measures are known to include a rise in value-added tax to 21%, limits to mortgage tax relief, cuts in health service spending and a new state pension age of 66 by 2019. According to Nos television, the own risk element in health insurance will rise from ‚ā¨220 a year to ‚ā¨350. Finances The package will now be sent to the macro-economic forecasting agency CPB which will assess the impact on the government's finances. The three minor parties -- the D66 Liberals, green party GroenLinks and ChristenUnie -- stepped in to fill the breach after Geert Wilders and the PVV pulled out of the talks. Prime minister Mark Rutte on Wednesday told reporters claims that spending power would be reduced by at least 6% because of the cuts are wrong. However, he declined to go into further details about the package of measures. Labour's finance spokesman Ronald Plasterk accused the five parties of not being 'transparent' enough about their plans. In addition, not knowing the details is making impossible for other parties to draw up their election campaigns, he said. - Energy bills to rise at least 8% next year

Current Energy Attack Cluster: Yemen - another attack on gas pipeline - Tracking Energy Attacks

Such is the case in Yemen, where in the past year attacks aimed at the country's energy infrastructure - i.e. oil and gas pipelines, electricity pylons, etc. - have been increasing and occurring on a monthly and at times weekly basis. The most recent attack took place on 14 May (Monday) when suspected Islamist militants associated with al Qaeda blew the Maarib gas pipeline at 3am in Shabwa (see photo).

Recent attacks on a pipeline in Yemen have regional electricity grid managers preparing for a possible drop in supplies of liquefied natural gas in the Boston area. Natural gas is abundant in the US, but local grid manager ISO New England said some power plants in northeastern Massachusetts have access only to liquefied natural gas. The ISO says because of that, if electricity demand spikes or another local power generator unexpectedly stops operating, diminished LNG supplies from Yemen put the grid’s ability to reliably produce electricity at risk.

From Sir Jim


After listening to yesterday's episode and discussion about whether marriage is a privilege or a right, I think you are missing the point, at least the point as I see it. You are correct that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are mum on the subject of marriage, but the "contract" of marriage has been used for many centuries to determine the settlement and inheritance of estates, succession of titles, parental child-rearing responsibilities, and other legal "rights and privileges" under contract law.

What I seek as a married gay person (my partner and I committed in 1978 and formally married in MA in 2004) has nothing to do with concerns about social acceptance, or even the uneven treatment of the concept of gay marriage from state to state--as long as there is some state where we can be legally married.

What I seek is more practical: "equal treatment under the law." Some equal treatments under law I would like to claim include:

* Filing federal income taxes as "married" rather than "single". Because I am working and my partner is retired, my taxes are thousands of dollars higher each year than they would be if we could file jointly.

* Passing on a higher social security income benefit to my partner in the event I die before him. My income, and so my Social Security benefit, is much higher than his earnings over his career. If were were recognized as married, the lower wage earning spouse would have his/her SS benefit boosted in the event of the death of the higher earning spouse. Under DOMA, we are treated as if we were strangers, with no adjustment of SS benefit in the event of my death before his. In an ideal libertarian world, this wouldn't matter, but this is the real world. A thousand more dollars per month for my widowed partner would be as important to him to live as it would be if "he" was a "she".

* Passing on my estate to my partner with him having to pay inheritance taxes as if he were a stranger. Again, DOMA prohibits federal tax laws from recognizing the marriage exemptions in the estate tax.

* Tax exemption for the cost of paying the premium for my retired partner's health insurance (he's not old enough to qualify for Medicare). If my partner were my "wife", my premiums (and the companies matching premiums) for "her" health insurance would be tax free. But because of DOMA, the cost of "his" premium and my company's matching premium are taxable. This alone adds about $2000 in federal taxes for me to carry medical insurance on my spouse.

I don't tend to interpret these inequities as some kind of civil rights violation, and I don't give a rat's ass whether or not someone disapproves of the use of the word "marriage". I would be happy to call it a "banana"....its just a word.

What I DO take offense to is that we are being denied equal application of federal tax and social security regulations (not even laws, just regulations) because of ... what? If the state where I live permits me to enter into a contract of marriage, what is the compelling social good that justifies the federal government in singling us out to be denied standing.

Having spent more than half our lifetimes together, sitting in each other's hospital rooms through years of "sickness and health", going through unemployment and success as we were alternately "richer and poorer", and supporting each other as first our parents and now we decline into age, is it too much to ask that we at least get the same financial and legal protections and security that other married couples take for granted?

Food for thought.

Best regards,

"Sir" Jim Spitzer

Senate panel to vote on extending benefits to same-sex partners -

The Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will vote Wednesday on a bill to extend health and other benefits to the same-sex domestic partners of gay and lesbian federal employees. S 1910, the Domestic Partnership Benefits and Obligations Act, would also allow feds to claim family and medical leave to care for same-sex partners. In addition, after a gay or lesbian retiree dies, his or her surviving partner could receive federal retirement benefits. The bill would not make those benefits available to opposite-sex domestic partners. Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., and Susan Collins, R-Maine, who are the chairman and ranking Republican on the committee, are the bill's sponsors. The bill has 21 other co-sponsors, but Collins is the only Republican who has signed on. "This legislation is about equality for the gay community, pure and simple," Lieberman said in a March news release. "We want to attract the best people to serve in the federal government, and one way to do that is by offering their families the same benefits as their heterosexual colleagues, as businesses across the country are already doing." Collins said in March that same-sex benefits are increasingly common among private-sector employers. "This change is both fair policy and good business practice," Collins said. The Obama administration supports extending more benefits to gay and lesbian federal employees' partners, but said it has been prevented from doing so by the Defense of Marriage Act. But even if S 1910 passes the Senate, it is likely to run into trouble in the Republican-controlled House, which opposes expanding federal employees' benefits.

FBI Agent Fleeing Massive Manhunt Warns "They're All Insane"

A bizarre Foreign Ministry report circulating in the Kremlin today states that this Friday past (11 May) Russian Envoy Vladimir Vinokurov, the Consulate General of San Francisco, was approached near his hotel room during a visit to Los Angles by an agent of the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) indentifying himself as Stephen Ivens [photo top left] who warned that he and a former FBI agent named Donald Sachtleben had uncovered evidence of an impending terror attack on US soil stating that those behind the attack were "all insane." Before Ivens was able to finish his "message," this report says, the three American Diplomatic Security (DS) agents, who trail all Russian diplomats in the US, began to "surge" towards Ivens causing him to flee. According to US news sources, Special Agent Ivens, after leaving downtown Los Angeles, returned to his home in Burbank whereupon he then fled into the rugged Verdugo Mountains after which a massive manhunt for him ensued involving 100 FBI agents, 40 sheriff's department rescuers and a dozen local police officers. FBI officials stated to the local media that Ivens was "distraught" and "might be suicidal" adding that they believed he had in his possession his service weapon.- At no time, however, did anyone ever state as to why Ivens would be in such a state. According to other US news sources, Special Agent Ivens graduated from Braintree High School in Massachusetts 18 years ago and was selected by his fellow students as "shyest" in his class. He was further described by FBI colleagues as well liked, a devoted agent with no history of disciplinary action on the job, and according to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller "Married with a one-year-old child, he has been working for the FBI for the past three years in the national security area. Prior to that, he worked as a Los Angeles police officer for eight years." Late yesterday, after the massive manhunt failed to find any trace of Ivens, his wife Thea Ivens issued an urgent public appeal stating: "Steve, if you are out there listening right now, your wife wants to let you know, 'Babe, we are in this together for better or for worse. I love you, no matter what happens.' Your child wants you to know, 'Daddy's work? Daddy home?'" Even more bizarre about this case, this report continues, is that the retired FBI agent named Donald Sachtleben mentioned by Ivens, who also knew about this impending "plot," was arrested within hours of Ivens disappearing and charged with trading child pornography. Most important to note about Sachtleben was, aside from his being an over 25-year veteran of the FBI, he was a special agent bomb technician before retiring in 2008 who specialized in counterterrorism and bombing investigations and whose most important case was the 11 September 2001 attacks on New York City. According to US news reports about Sachtleben's arrest, this most knowledgeable of FBI agents openly traded child porn using the e-mail address '' in an act so stupid for one of the United States most highly trained intelligence agents it defies belief.

Fabian on FBI Code

In spanish "Verdugo" is the guy that chopped the head of the people in the inquisition. The dude in black that sat all the way on the back in church, the guy who pulled the chair on the soon to hang people, etc.

I mean, there is indeed a place called "verdugo" on cali, but it's way too "good" to not be a code.

Thank you for all the hard work you're pulling for everyone. Hope i'm not a douchebag anymore sometime soon.

Obama warns of Defense spending bill veto -

The White House is threatening to veto the $642 billion 2013 Defense authorization bill passed last week by the House Armed Services Committee because it spends too much on national security. The administration signaled last week that it would not support a budget that is $4 billion over the president's request and $8 billion over the spending caps set last fall by the bipartisan Budget Control Act of 2011. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Rep. Buck McKeon, R-Calif., the Armed Services Committee chairman, had a terse exchange of statements last week, with Panetta claiming the extra money would actually hurt the military by making it more likely that Congress and the White House will be unable to avoid across-the-board budget cuts in January that could reduce the 2013 defense budget by $55 billion or more. McKeon, however, said the extra money was part of an effort by House Republicans to prevent reductions so deep that the military would not be able to carry out core missions. The House is set to pass the defense bill by week's end, but at some point lawmakers will have to reconcile differences with the Senate, which currently plans to abide by last fall's spending caps. That could require the Senate Armed Services Committee to find $4 billion in cuts in the Pentagon's plan when it meets the week of May 21 to write its version of the budget. This isn't the only area of dispute. The statement of administration policy issued by the White House's Office of Management and Budget expresses disappointment that lawmakers have not endorsed Pentagon plans for higher fees in Tricare health insurance and pharmacy co-pays. The administration was trying to save $13 billion across five years, but the House version of the 2013 defense authorization bill greatly reduced the scope of the Pentagon proposal, allowing only a modest $2.9 billion in savings from small increases in pharmacy co-pays.

It is an experiment anyone may conduct however it is time consuming, but worthwhile. First select an issue you find interesting and of great import to the country. Next follow the Congressional debate as much as you can on C-SPAN, watching the floor debate, not a synopsis of the debate but the actual debate. That is the imperative portion of the experiment as it disallows any coverage or coloring or interpretation of what was said, you hear only what was said. Now listen to the coverage of what you have witnessed yourself, live in Congress and see which networks present the most accurate and unbiased version of the particular debate you have been following. I had found that when watching MSNBC, CNN, NBC or to a slightly lesser degree the rest of the mainstream media, that their coverage was so tilted to the left that it was actually difficult to even grasp that they were discussing the event you had just witnessed. The words you just saw someone use, are changed, omitted or ascribed to someone else. The whole tenure of the debate is so distorted that you are left scratching your head and wondering how could they take what I just saw and change it into what I just heard them say? It is crazy. I have noticed that Fox News engages in basically none of this. I can hear the leftists now, the George Soros media monopoly fans whining and groaning but I am not going to argue with them any longer. I know. I urge you folks out there to do this experiment for yourselves, it won't take all that long, and it will change the way you obtain your information for the rest of your life and it will allow you to see how you are being flat out manipulated, and that my fellow voters is important, it is critical and it is worth the time.

Alzheimer's Prevention Is Aim of Drug Trial -

In a clinical trial that could lead to treatments that prevent Alzheimer's, people who are genetically guaranteed to develop the disease -- but who do not yet have any symptoms -- will for the first time be given a drug intended to stop it, federal officials announced Tuesday.

The drug trial is part of the federal government’s first national plan to address Alzheimer’s, which was unveiled Tuesday by Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary for health and human services. The government took the unusual step of assigning $50 million from the current year’s N.I.H. budget to research considered too promising to wait, including the Colombia trial and a study on whether inhaled insulin can ease mild cognitive impairment, Dr. Collins said. Another $100 million is proposed for 2013, mostly for research, but also for education, caregiver support and data collection.

Success for the Colombia trial is, of course, no sure thing. Many trials fail, and Alzheimer’s research has so far found no treatment effective for more than several months. But experts say that trying drugs years before symptoms emerge could have greater potential because the brain would not yet be ravaged by the disease. The trial will be financed with $16 million from the National Institutes of Health, $15 million from private donors through the Banner Institute and about $65 million from Genentech, the drug’s American manufacturer.

Teenager died of tuberculosis after string of doctors fail to spot condition and one even branded her 'lovesick' | Mail Online

A 15-year-old schoolgirl died of tuberculosis after a series of doctor errors missed the chance to detect and cure her disease, with her GP claiming she was 'lovesick', an inquest heard today. Alina Sarag died in January last year after a GP allegedly advised her that her physical deterioration was due to mental health problems.

Her distraught father, Sultan Sarag, 43, broke down as he told the court: 'The doctor said to her ‘Did you meet someone on holiday? Are you missing him?

'She found it very distressing he was suggesting she was lovesick for a boy.

'He said all the problems were in her head and she should see a psychiatrist or spiritual healer.'

Mr Sarag also claimed Dr Sharad Shripadrao Pandit accused him of 'mollycoddling' Alina, and refused to test his daughter for TB.
