Christine Lagarde: can the head of the IMF save the euro? | World news | The Guardian

"Well, I look under the skin of countries' economies and I help them make better decisions and be stronger, to prosper and create employment." You could think of the IMF as a-global payday loan company for countries who have got into trouble and can't meet their financial commitments -- the difference being that instead of charging sky-high interest rates, it demands radical economic reforms. And if they say they don't like the sound of that? "If I'm confident that the sound of it is accurate, I say, well, I'm terribly sorry but this is the sound we are making."

"Do you know what? As far as Athens is concerned, I also think about all those people who are trying to escape tax all the time. All these people in Greece who are trying to escape tax."

Even more than she thinks about all those now struggling to survive without jobs or public services? "I think of them equally. And I think they should also help themselves collectively." How? "By all paying their tax. Yeah."

It sounds as if she's essentially saying to the Greeks and others in Europe, you've had a nice time and now it's payback time.

"That's right." She nods calmly. "Yeah."

Germany sets new solar power record, institute says | Reuters

German solar power plants produced a world record 22 gigawatts of electricity per hour - equal to 20 nuclear power stations at full capacity - through the midday hours on Friday and Saturday, the head of a renewable energy think tank said. The German government decided to abandon nuclear power after the Fukushima nuclear disaster last year, closing eight plants immediately and shutting down the remaining nine by 2022.

"This shows Germany is capable of meeting a large share of its electricity needs with solar power," Allnoch said. "It also shows Germany can do with fewer coal-burning power plants, gas-burning plants and nuclear plants."

Allnoch said the data is based on information from the European Energy Exchange (EEX), a bourse based in Leipzig.

Drowned Libya oil chief feared going home | Reuters

Yet since Ghanem died, dozens of conversations with family friends, neighbors, former colleagues in Tripoli and officials who knew Ghanem through the three decades he was a senior figure at OPEC headquarters in Vienna, have built up a picture of man who was under mounting stress and concerned for his wellbeing.

"It was a professionally executed crime," concluded Noman Benotman, a prominent Libyan analyst and long-time opponent of Gaddafi who conceded he lacked any hard evidence. "It is the global energy mafia. It's to do with corruption, secret deals. People wanted to make sure he is not around anymore to talk."

Drone Nation

Domestic Drones & the Invasion of Privacy - Ricochet.com

When unmanned drones deploy in the United States, as they inevitably will, I think the predominant consideration will be privacy concerns, rather than Constitution. -In the end, the Constitution's Fourth Amendment prohibitions on unreasonable search and seizure will not determine the domestic rules on drones. -In part, that is because I think the Fourth Amendment will not pose much of an obstacle to drones for surveillance purposes. -Cameras, for example, are already permitted to constantly photograph public spaces -- think of the cameras in government buildings, airports, public squares, and streets. -They can be used at the borders and at sensitive installations. -If New York City can cover much of its downtown with video surveillance, should it matter whether it is a drone or a stationary camera? I predict that private drones will prove a bigger invasion of privacy. -I met an inventor a few months ago who showed me a drone that could be made for a few hundred dollars and controlled by an iphone. -The Constitution only limits what the state can do, not what private parties can do. -And it is private parties who will be the principle users of domestic drones. -I predict that these drones will be used mostly by suspicious spouses and parents, not to mention celebrity gawkers. -So more important than worrying about whether the NYPD or DHS uses drones, are what rules our society will choose to govern and constrain the private use of drones. -It may ultimately be difficult to control; as drone technology allows for smaller and cheaper drones, the government will have less and less ability to regulate them. -
