The Protests Finally Begin As The Money Runs Out



March 04, 2010 – Comments (4)

(Bloomberg) -- European Central Bank President Jean-Claude Trichet pressed Greece to halt its flirtation with International Monetary Fund aid and work with European allies to tame its record budget deficit.

As protesters besieged the Greek Finance Ministry to denounce 4.8 billion euros ($6.5 billion) of tax increases and spending cuts, the Athens government said the absence of European support might force it into the hands of the IMF.

Trichet yesterday spoke out against appealing to the Washington-based lender “as a supplier of help,” keeping the pressure on Greece to cut the highest deficit in the euro’s 11- year history -- and on European governments to step in if Greece can’t go it alone.

COLORADO SPRINGS - A historical piece of Colorado Springs is shutting down.   

Penrose St. Francis Health Center at 825 E. Pikes Peak Avenue will close at the end of 2010. The city's first hospital built in 1887 has been on the market for years, but received no serious offers. The center will be closed to save money. "It costs $2 million a year to keep operating," said COO Jameson Smith. "That money can be reinvested in other facilities that have tremendous needs."

The majority of tenants will be out of the building by December 31st

Hey Alstry:

If nothing else your posts do provoke discussions. I heard a lecture from the visiting nurses association which in some cases uses remote monitoring in people's homes- a machine that takes vital signs and basic chemical processes and sends the information remotely to who knows where for interpretation. Even has a built in digital camera so patients can take pictures of rashes and upload it to their doctor. Amazing.
