Greece moves to quell default fears, pledges to meet 'all obligations'

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/06/us-eurozone-greece-imf-idUSKBN0MX01D20150406

(Reuters) - Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said on Sunday that Greece "intends to meet all obligations to all its creditors, ad infinitum," seeking to quell default fears ahead of a big loan payment Athens owes the IMF later this week.

Following a meeting with the head of the International Monetary Fund, Varoufakis told reporters the government plans to "reform Greece deeply" and would seek to improve the "efficacy of negotiations" with its creditors.

Greece has not received bailout funds since August last year and has resorted to measures such as borrowing from state entities to tide it over. It offered a new package of reforms last week in the hope of unlocking funds, but has yet to win agreement on the proposals with its EU and IMF lenders.

Most urgently, Athens is on the hook for a roughly 450 million euro loan repayment to the IMF due this Thursday.

Need help interpreting a netstat

Here is the background: I have a paid subscription to http://di.fm, which is an online streaming service for electronic dance music. I'm also using the Windows 10 beta. A few weeks back, DI.FM notified me that I was connecting excessively to their service and asked if I was using more than one device to connect. I replied back to customer service that I was not, that I was only using one desktop computer and using W10 beta. Since then, I've been using the free di.fm service. Yes, I can uninstall W10 and reinstall W8.1 if I really need to.

I did notify Microsoft of the exact problem, so hopefully they will fix it.

Ok, here's my current netstat while connecting to my http://di.fm paid account:



I am only connected to di.fm and DU. Microsoft might also have a connection, since I'm using W10 beta.

Thanks for your help!

Steve

P.S. I pay for the paid version for no commercials.

1923 SCOTUS: Adkins v. Childrenís Hospital 261 U.S. 525, minimum wage for women is BAD!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adkins_v._Children%27s_Hospital

Adkins v. Children's Hospital, 261 U.S. 525 (1923), is a United States Supreme Court opinion holding that federal minimum wage legislation for women was an unconstitutional infringement of liberty of contract, as protected by the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment.

Adkins was overturned in West Coast Hotel Co. v. Parrish, 300 U.S. 379 (1937).

Your favorite "vice" ?

I'd have to say mine is loud music. I'd LOVE to be able to play my music in my headphones pretty loud all day, but then I'd be a candidate for a good hearing aide pretty soon.

What's yours ?

Eastern Maine, northern Michigan, MT and ID still getting snow, my sympathies

Employers at Disney agree to $10 hourly minimum

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/business/os-disney-union-contracgts-20150403-story.html

Two companies that employ restaurant workers within Disney World have agreed to raise their pay to $10 an hour by 2017.

Unite Here Local 737, a union that represents the 400 workers, has announced the pay agreement with Palmas Services and Patina Restaurant Group.

Workers will vote whether to ratify the contract today.

The wages will be similar to increases Disney World already agreed to for the tens of thousands of people it employs.

Are any other states or nations having trouble with the new drug Flakka ?

In Florida we are.


Meet Flakka, The Dangerous New Drug Sweeping Florida

It can be even stronger than crystal meth or bath salts

Its effects can be as potent as crystal meth, bath salts or cocaine. It causes people to act erratically, uncontrollably and dangerously. Itís called flakka, and itís the new designer drug hitting the streets of Florida.

In recent weeks in Florida, this new drug has led to a man trying to break down the door to a police station, a man impaling himself while trying to scale a fence, and an armed and naked man shouting about hallucinations from a rooftop, CBS reports.

The health effects of taking flakka, which can be injected, snorted, smoked or swallowed, can be dire.

Many good vibes for all those who are ill, and who have family members and friends who are ill...

I hope, at least, none of you are getting worse and are getting better, if possible.
