ZeroHedge – EU Offers Conditional “Aid” For Ukraine’s “Catastrophic, Pre-Default” Economic State – 23 February 2014

ZeroHedgeThere is no money in Ukraine’s Treasury account,” exclaimed ‘Interim President’ Oleksandr Turchynov to the Ukrainian parliament; adding that the Ukraine economy is in a “catastrophic state.”

  • *THERE ARE PROBLEMS WITH BANKING SYSTEM AND HRYVNIA: TURCHYNOV
  • *PROBLEMS WITH PENSION FUND ARE “COLOSSAL”: TURCHYNOV
  • *UKRAINE’S ECONOMY IS IN A `PRE-DEFAULT’ SITUATION: TURCHYNOV

Hardly surprising given the months of protest; but with Russia ‘conditionally’ postponing its EUR2bn ‘loan’, the Europeans are riding to the nation’s aid with promises of EUR20bn (if Ukrainian authorities meet certain conditions).

Laura Bruno – Harry Manx – The Mohan Veena Is Missing – Including Update – 23 February 2014

laura-of-the-rocks“Beloved friends, with a heavy heart I want to tell you all that this morning at Chicago Ohara airport, while I was on my way to retrieving my luggage, someone stole my beloved Mohan Veena (pictured to the left of me). Security cameras showed a man pick it up and walk out. I’ve had that Veena more than 20years. There’s hardly been a day that I haven’t played it. I feel as though I’ve lost a good friend. I need everyone’s help to find it. If you know someone in Chicago, tell them about it. Maybe it will surface on Craigslist or E-bay. Maybe in a music store or Pawn shop. There’s no missing it. The Veena is in a Black Fibreglass Case with lots of stickers. And the Veena has 20 Strings, 2 layers of strings running parallel. It has tuning heads right down the neck. No other instrument looks like this. I’m grateful for any help. Thanks, Harry” Continue reading
