Hello everyone!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!

Many wishes for a healthy, happy 2014 for you and your loved ones.





This thread has made it to 2014. With a little more effort from all of you (i.e. less posting) it will make it to the end of the Australian Open.

Sorry, A.

Rafa beats Gulbis 7-5 6-4. Was down 0-3 in the 2nd. Gojowczyck next. Rafa better win this tournament now. Of course after me thinking it he most certainly won't.

Most probably. We all know what happened when I dared to think that naaah, he won't lose the 4th rd to Söderling of all people yet at RG 2009 (whom he had just trashed in Rome a few weeks before). But that's me and my thoughts.

I think I did some threads last year and they turned out OK but I'm not willing to push my luck again just yet.

If Rafa does not win Doha after beating Ernests I will be very upset

Re: Rafachat - Vol. 80: Another great year for our great champion! :D

There's an article in my newspaper today (De Morgen) on Latvia joining the euro area.

Title: "Latvia, home of crime money"

There are lots of questions on the Latvian bank sector. The original plan was to create some sort of Swiss system in Latvia, building a bridge from E-Europe to London and Frankfurt (the financial headquarters of Europe).
This has attracted a lot of dirty money and there are quite a few questions on how the Latvian bank system is being controlled.

Half of the money parked in Latvian banks comes from outside Latvia and a great deal of that foreign money is crime money.

On the bright side, due to entering the euro zone, the European Central Bank will put the Latvian bank sector to a stress test and it will get a stern control system + the Latvian bank world is not so big compared to the entire Latvian economy so should anything go wrong, it won't have a dramatic impact (like what happened in Greece).


----
A colleague of mine on Schumacer:
"I have zero sympathy for the man. He had it coming. Will teach him a lesson for not following the rules. He deserves it."
---> Needless to say that this was followed by a quick talking to from me. Esp. the "he deserves it" got me going. Saying "it's his fault" is one thing but saying that he deserves it, is quite another.
He added: "It's on the news, it's everywhere....just because he's a celebrity, I'm supposed to care?"
Me: No, but it's not because he's a celebrity that you have to be a jerk about it. He deserves it????

Oh, I've seen that movie three times already (note for Maria, spread over the years) and it gets me every single time. I challenge everybody with a functioning heart to watch that without crying.
