Their transgression? Acknowledging that they have used Amazon. Of the candidates on the debate stage … [Read more...] about Can a Republican Win a Citywide Race in N.Y.? Maybe, With Amazon’s Help
Help clearing my debt
0 Have your say MORE and more people are suffering serious financial hardship due to this Government’s austerity policies. Almost a decade of cuts to tax credits, housing and disability benefits have combined with insecure work, low wages and zero-hours contracts, along with the high cost of credit to bring family finances to breaking point.All added up, UK households now owe an average of more than £15,000 in unsecured lending from credit card firms, banks and other forms of household debt. Cashing in on misery, like a predator hunting its prey: the bailiffs. Unregulated, and making profits on the backs of the most vulnerable.Of course, businesses and government have a right – and often a duty – to seek money that they are owed, especially from those who are simply refusing or making no effort to pay for products and services. But everybody should abide by a code of decency which is too often ignored and rarely enforced on rogue … [Read more...] about In My View with Rachel Reeves MP: Rogue bailiffs prey on victims of austerity cuts
By Steve Scherer ROME (Reuters) - Investments will fuel Italian economic growth over the next two years and the debt level will be put on a downward path despite a significant increase in the budget deficit, Economy Minister Giovanni Tria said on Sunday. Italy's ruling parties -- the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement and the right-wing League -- last week proposed a 2019 deficit of 2.4 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), three times the previous administration's target. Deputy Prime Minister and 5-Star leader Luigi Di Maio hailed the move as the basis for a "people's budget" that would include a minimum income for the poor that would "abolish poverty". However, the announcement rattled markets, prompting a bond sell-off and a rout of banking stocks. It also set up a clash with the European Commission, which monitors and enforces EU fiscal rules. But Tria, an economist who belongs to neither ruling party, said that the Commission and markets should be reassured once they have a … [Read more...] about Growth to help curb Italy debt despite higher deficit
I'M married to a man that I want to divorce. We've been together for 15 years but he's betrayed my trust so many times over the years.I know he's seeing another woman at work – he hasn't denied it and when I asked one of his colleagues, they confirmed it. I've also found receipts in his jacket for jewellery or gifts that I've never received.His mobile phone is full of calls to this woman and when he went away on business recently, she went too. At home, we're sleeping in separate rooms and our sexual relationship stopped over two years ago.We barely speak to each other except when our daughter is around. She seems confused and withdrawn at times, so we try to pretend that nothing is wrong. However, she's a smart eight-year-old and I am sure she is aware that something is wrong.Last week, I tried once again to get him out of the house by packing his cases while he was at work, but when he came home, he somehow made it seem like it was all my fault.Then yesterday, I overheard him … [Read more...] about Ask Fiona: Should I divorce my husband or will that put me in debt?
A Jamaican lottery winner could not stop smiling - and winking - as she bagged just over 180m Jamaican dollars (£1m). Known only as N. Gray, the woman wore an eye-catching winking-face emoji mask as she collected the $180,900,000 prize won in the Supreme Ventures Super Lotto draw.According to The Jamaica Star, she had used the disguise in response to rampant crime in the country. Simone Clarke-Cooper, the lottery organiser's assistant vice-president of group corporate communications, told the newspaper that previous winners have resorted to disguises to protect themselves."Unfortunately, Jamaica is not like other markets," she said."In other markets, they don't necessarily do it, but here I think they opt to do it to keep themselves safe."We are not going to tell them not to do that because their safety is of paramount importance to us as well."She added: "People have been coming with their own disguises."They usually don't need our help, and they are usually very creative, … [Read more...] about Lottery winner wears winking emoji mask to conceal identity while collecting prize
