The Constitutional Court of Kampala called ‘ none ‘. When was approved in Parliament, there was no quorum required of members. The law provided for life imprisonment for homosexuals The anti-gay law, launched in Uganda in December last year between the international criticism, was rejected by the Constitutional Court in Kampala who called it ‘ none ‘. According to the judges, the legislative process has violated constitutional rules, since when was approved in Parliament, there was no quorum required of members. The legislation, which came into force in February, was jailed for life for homosexuals.   Despite the criticism and international pressure, in a gesture of defiance, the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, in February had signed the law, even to try ‘ independence ‘ of the African country "in the face of provocation of the West". The entry into force of the legislation, which also urged the delation, aroused a wave of discriminatory against gays, with homosexuals shamed, attacked and cited in ‘ blacklists if published in the media, in a veritable witch-hunt.   But for gay and lesbian activists, today is the day of the festivities: ‘ I’m no longer a criminal, we made history for generations to come, "said Kasha Jacqueline, another of the petitioners, a few hours after the Pastor Martin Ssempa, a fierce supporter of the law, had led a public prayer, asking the judges to stand alongside them. Own Ssempa has already announced that it will present ‘ appeal to the Supreme Court. "   . Extended facts can be found checking weblink.

Fiat salutes the Italy, via the last Assembly. The lambs trying to lock the control.

Closed

TURIN-last Waltz of Fiat in Italy. The shareholders ‘ meeting of the ingot is reunited for the last time in Turin. From this morning at 11 am start voting to approve the merger with Chrysler that will give life to Fca, the new company from 4.7 million cars born from the integration between Turin and Detroit. Extraordinary shareholders ‘ meeting held in August, last data useful to come in October at the Fca price on Wall Street, the real objective of the transfer of the registered office in the Netherlands and fiscal domicile in United Kingdom. The headquarters in London appears to have been an implied condition placed by American investors to participate with enthusiasm at the Lingotto landing on the New York Stock Exchange. Lambs shall ensure that today is not a farewell to Italy but a new beginning, the opening of a new page, the emergence of a truly global society, without nationality. Our country is the whole world, as they sang the anarchists in the early 20th century. The litmus test will not delay to arrive. Will be reviewing the main commitment assumed by Sergio Marchionne solemnly: the return to full employment in the Italian plants. Not just that, if it were kept, it would be perhaps the sacrifice of transferring elsewhere group headquarters. In the coming weeks should start composition of lines at Mirafiori, to the East of Maserati suv, and Cassino for the new Alfa Giulia, the car that should mark the rescue Biscione brand. Only when srriverà the end of layoffs in establishments of the Peninsula, you can say that the social report of the Fca was positive for Italy. For the moment the main front of the bag. That in the last few hours is punishing the title in Turin, based on a quarterly basis not exciting and maybe even the consideration that with the prices in Holland and the ability to guarantee to shareholders shares from voting twice, the competitiveness of Fca is less than today. Thanks to the new system could switch from Exor 30 to 46 percent of the voting rights. A circumstance which in recent days had caused some analysts to recommend the funds to vote against the merger and exercise the right of withdrawal, which is higher than the current stock market courses. According to the rules of procedure of the merger, the merger would not be valid if the withdrawal was costing the company more than 500 million euros. A figure that is equivalent to 5 percent of the shares. Finally the Assembly today, and especially the final press conference will understand what will be in the coming years the commitment of lambs in the new company. If the merger will become an opportunity to progressively dilute the share or whether, as he said a year ago John Elkann, when the cake is good does not reduce the slices. The idea of disengagement is that in recent weeks has fueled rumors about possible new alliances or even of acquisition by Volkswagen. Assumption that the Lingotto has flatly denied. .

Figc, Tavecchio does not spring. But by comparison with Malagò out weaker.

Closed

Giovanni Malagò did what it was supposed to do, yesterday at the cones. Commissioner of the Figc could not (among other things, with himself ,.). It could not compel Carlo Tavecchio to step back. Could, and did, tell him clearly what he thinks. The No. 1 sport respects the rules, the autonomy of the federations and democracy. Of course, it’s also been tough. But he used common sense and diplomacy. He explained that he did not expect to secure a downhill period and the front against him now is international. He also asked not to pay bills at nassuno. Clear reference to Laul unwanted as Federal Vice-President. He also suggested a possible alliance with Albertini who could fill the role of vice President for Lotito. But Tavecchio will be able to oppose his great elector? Malagò has precistato that if the football world decides to vote Tavecchio, he may not oppose although he made clear as he thinks (he did not vote for sure, just to understand,.). Next week will put the two candidates, Tavecchio precisely and Albertini, and will see how they can get out. Non-waiver: Tavecchio knows that will not have an easy life, nor from here to August 11, election day, nor after. But hopes that the controversy subside after the unhappy (about this are all agree and he apologised yesterday): today more than 60 Tavecchio has percent of the vote, enough to win and govern. Yes, there was a decrease of consents that might also continue in the next few days: but beware, what he lost the No. 1 of the powerful Amateur League is not gone, at least for now, to his rival Albertini (catch per hour around 30-33). Tavecchio remains so favoritissimo: the four leagues are with him, even if they have to face the ill will of any President. Maybe someone will put white adapter in the URN, maybe someone will remain at sea (in this case lowering the quorum which provides, in the third ballot, the 50 percent plus one). But changes little the substance: the fact remains that two years would not be easy, and this clearly said Malagò to Tavecchio, which demanded reforms now, different governance of the Figc and credible group mates (who knows who he was referring to ,.). By Tavecchio expects a breakthrough, responds to his conscience. Malagò also said, I don’t exclude news from here on August 11. Which Ones? A step backwards by Tavecchio? I do not think, not only because even yesterday he has excluded by decision but also because the four alloys that the claim did not abandon (and fear the Commissioner as a nightmare). And then, it is possible an agreement between the two parties? Not easy, but not to exclude entirely. What agreement? A hypothesis (also suggested by Abodi): Tavecchio, Albertini vice President (renunciation of candidacy), the other Deputy Macalli. Maybe it’s more feasible, and someone should take a step back. Hypothesis B, that would love to trade union footballers: Albertini, President Lotito and Macalli vice. Hard. Should withdraw Tavecchio and I don’t think, at least at the moment, it will. It is true that it is shocked that la bufera humanely, he overwhelmed at a difficult time for family reasons but has always been a fighter (certainly not a Communicator ,.) and was released from a three-hour meeting with Malagò serene. And above all, absolutely willing to go ahead. In its programme there are also excellent things, hidden by faux pas terrible. They talked about ius soli for example: now attacks him left and right, defends him curious no? For Lambs and Pallotta is inadequate, for others (the majority) is able to run the football for two years. With a new governance (possible that amateurs have the 34%, A 12%), with immediate reforms as asked (required?) Malagò, with a coach named and prestige (ideally, Count or left-handed), with the revival of the women’s sector (as they want Fifa, Uefa, cones, etc.), and school of engineering, with the fight against racism, etc. Speak only with himself, the suggested Malagò. Tavecchio has strong communication problems and we saw last Friday: must be more cautious. Read a text, don’t go off the cuff as it did. The Figc Meanwhile responded to Fifa and Uefa: simply? Matteo Renzi explained that cannot intervene (under penalty of disqualification of Figc); but we understand that the would do willingly. Presented in the meantime two exposed to superprocuratore Stefano Palazzi against Tavecchio: what will happen? Probable storage. You calm down the waters? And when you calm down? If you wish not only Tavecchio. He also added the comment of the Pd’s Cecile Kyenge MEP, former Minister of integration, that twitter wrote: Carlo Tavecchio cannot represent Italian football! We need also in soccer, gym of an integration as possible. . Main facts could be studied reading the following homepage.

After a furious quarrel in the Office he yelled in his face to colleague: "you who you Tasi terrona". Why a public servant of the municipality of Piove di Sacco, in the province of Padua, was punished by his superiors with the suspension and inferring a day job from his paycheck. The episode dates back to about six months ago but was made public only now after the Commission decision that sanctioned in exemplary manner the municipal employee. The woman, who shared with the man the same Office, they had felt offended by the words of our colleague and had asked to be officially opened disciplinary proceedings against him. The employee, actually native to South, turned to unions that have collected the testimonies of others in solidarity and the case ended up in front of the municipal Secretary. These so he had to open a dossier on the case and refer the proceedings to a triad of executives who, after collecting the testimonies of these and listened to the story and the versions of the two protagonists, eventually decided the penalty. The employee was suspended for one day and in fact the salary was reduced by one working day.

Turkish election in Berlin: for Erdogan at the stadium.

Closed

Many voters make whoever gets this vote, not a secret. A young man is on the way to the ballot box. There is no alternative to Erdogan, he did so much for our country, he says about the current Prime Minister of Turkey, now running for the Office of President. What he has done for us is incomparable. But what does he say to the protests in the Gezi Park, which had put down Erdogan last year by police with water cannons and rubber bullets? The people who there have campaigned for the few trees that are not quite clean. In Berlin, there would not be so what! Many who cast their votes on Thursday in the Olympic Stadium, think so. Also Udom Tuncay, who came with his wife and his two small children to the selection in the Berlin area. Great service is that we can choose. It is important for us what is happening in Turkey, where live, our friends and our family, he says. Who chooses? I’m for a positive change in our country, the existing Government should stay in Office. So Erdogan? They can be interpreted so, says the 35-year old father. Erdogan had hinted already, that he quite continue wants to intervene in the case of an election victory on the daily politics. The Turkish Ambassador in Berlin, Hüseyin Avni KARSLIOGLU, comes to the Stadium on Wednesday to cast his vote. Out of his dark Limo, he waves to the Turks, still waiting to be admitted to the ballot box. Every Turk in Berlin should regard it as his duty, to cast his vote. The more participants, the better for our country, says KARSLIOGLU later. However he does not expect a high turnout: many Turks who go over the summer in the home, vote right in Turkey. Keep coming back, but also outraged voters out of the stadium: who tell me, I will come back for another appointment to cast my vote, scolding a small, roundish man in cameras for the Turkish television channel. This is undemocratic. Actually who wants to take part in the Turkish elections in Berlin, must fill out before an online form, about then his election date will be communicated to him. It was however apparently not clear many voters (for information about the procedure of choice here). Ahmed Külahci for the Turkish newspaper Hürryiet writes about the Berlin operation of the policy.

The Argentine ‘default’ will have a limited impact on the outside, but can affect Santander and BBVA.

Closed

"The Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, minimizes the impact: Argentina has been out of the financial markets for a long time and even though the default is always unfortunate we don’t believe have greater substantive consequences outside the country", said.  But doors inside will be greater consequences:-can not return to the international markets. Up to now much of argentina’s debt was bought by institutions and national banks. The country, attempts to issue debt outside and the ‘default’ away it permanently from this access. "A default would isolate it from financial markets despite recent efforts by the Government, says the report from Naitixis. For the French Bank, if Argentina to achieve an agreement with some of its most determined creditors, the impact on the Argentine economy will be relatively limited. -Fall of GDP.    The country’s growth already has slowed, from 3% to 1.7% current 2013. The bankruptcy will worsen the slowdown to growth. "Input, there will be three effects on argentina’s economy: weakening of growth, a further devaluation of the weight, difficulty in access to markets by firms", believes Marcos. A report of Abeceb. com believes that there would be a drop in GDP of at least 3.5%. On the other hand, if there is agreement, a less negative scenario was calculated: "the fall of the GDP in 1.5%, 34.5% inflation (41% if there is ‘default’) and 1.8% less consumption (3.8% with ‘default’)." Deutsche Bank experts speak directly of a very deep recession. -Difficulty and higher prices for companies when it comes to finance. A ‘default’ will lower the credit note of the country, and with it the the largest part of their companies. If you are looking for credit abroad, leave them more expensive to finance. -More unemployment. If companies have less credit and more expensive, will affect the labour market. "The main fear is to begin layoffs in a country with an unemployment rate at 7.1%," running in the WSJ from Orlando Ferreres Economic Studies Center. -Higher inflation and rising prices of imports. It seems almost an endemic Argentine. In 2013 it was 28 percent, and so far of the year has been 15%. Abeceb. com puts inflation in 2014, in case of bankruptcy, by 41%.  -Shortage of foreign currency. Marcos explains that it would encourage even more the black currency market because they would reduce international currency reserves. "Possibly a scenario of default would be followed by a speculative attack against the weight, and that would end in a devaluation of the currency and the consequent reduction of the income of the citizens, says The Wall Street Journal, For additional insights on this topic click home page.
