So do greek companies go bankrupt on a daily basis now because of the crisis? I guess the housing sector is dead also.
Yes they do. But the most important thing is that every month thousands of people are losing their jobs and most of them are being forced to leave the country. Those who will stay living is very difficult. They are trying to get along with the minimal amount of money and that will result more companies to bankruptcy and on and on. It never ends but hopefully economy will meet new balances. If you mean the public sector then no, it is not dead. But it is not fully operational. There were many mergings of organizations that lead to employees move and it will take some time, I guess, to be fully operational again.
Oh man, I’m so much enjoying this thread.
I just had to step into it as many comments are related to my country. I’m Greek and first of all I’m so relieved that many of you truly know what is going on here and that you are having strong opinion on what is going on in eurozone in general. During the last 2 years that my country is under the IMF supervision, european – and american – media are transmitting so many inaccurate and one sided views of facts that is pure propaganda. Well, soundengine and doru you guys are so right.
I’m no expert but the money that would bailout Greece wasn’t enough to cover their whole debt and it was meant to be given gradually as long as Greece employs certain cuts from their budgets. But greek politicians are having a hard time convinving people to accept these hard regulations. They can’t even form a government. So bailout isn’t working as planned.
That is correct. The total amount that Greece was agreed to receive is about 80 billion euros when the total debt is about 320 billion euros. The amount that Greece has received till today is less than half of the agreed as it receives more as long as it acceptes the rules of the IMF and the rest of the loaners. But even this amount don’t do anything good to the economy as it is the exact amount that periodically the state needs to keep the economy running. So if I would try to be as periphrastic as pezflash is, I would say that the loans that Greece is taking during the last 2 years is the ice that keeps the greek economy corps cold so that it won’t smell enough! Additionally it is giving the major european – and american – banks the time needed to sell as many Greek bonds as they can to… Greece! Yeap, a large amount of the loans are going to the european banks so that they will reduce their risk status by just selling Greek bonds back to Greece.
If anyone can enlighten me about a different subject.. where did the money borrowed to Greece since the bailout went? How much money did they get, and didn’t this amount cover their debt already? I just don’t understand why they keep saying Greece is in trouble, every couple of weeks, and they need even more money borrowed. What happened to the money they received previously? Did those money help or they vanished in a big pocket? If it didn’t help, than why lend them more money? Will the money help now? This goes on and on.. I don’t get it.
they never got any money. Is like this: You have to pay back to me an amount I give to you couple of weeks ago. Let’s say 50euro + 5euro of interest. But you don’t have it. So I give you on paper 55euro to cover that debt but off course you never see those money. Funny thing is that now you need to give me back 110euro plus interest. The idea is that to keep getting “saved” every time you have to give natural resources, cheap work force, land or other things of value to the banks and corporations. (things are more complex I have oversimplified but that is the idea)Maybe the only solution than can save Greece and Europe and US off course, is what Iceland did.
@bobocel Will the money help now? No. And true, it goes on and on and it won’t stop until they will say to stop. When it will be that? Easy, when the price of Greece is low enough to buy out EVERYTHING . Ports and airports, the national energy corporation, the telecommunications (national telecommunication company is already owned by about 40% by Deutche Telecom), the natural resources (north Greece has the largest exploitable gold mine in the Balkans which is about to be sold in a multinational company by only 1/25 of its true value). I could go on for hours but I’m sure you got the picture.
@doru Man you are so right. Thanks for that! As for the solution, I guess that it can’t be done. Simply because Iceland have its own currency. And we are stuck with the damn euro.
Anyone used – or built – a plugin to deal with the dead urls after migrating to WP?
All current urls are like domain.com/categoryname/121212 or domain.com/pagename/categoryname/121212 with the last part to be the unique id. I’m thinking to create an additional field to posts table and transfer the ids. After website migration the pluging should be called from the 404 page, extract the last part of the dead url (number id), query the wp database to match the numbers and redirect to the new url.
Any advice is appreciated!
Simply that the theme is tested and compatible with the specific wordpress version eg 3.2.1 or version range from 3.0 to latest for 3x ready
At last I decided to go for the kwicks and customize it to the project needs as slidedeck is a bit expensive for a low budjet project that I’m working on. Well, as soon as I started coding I got Appsumo today’s deal “Slidedeck” for a price that I just can’t say no.
If anyone is interesting here it is http://www.appsumo.com/?r=ZdMD
vadims saidHey are you looking for something like this http://medikia.pl/html/light/blue/index_accordion.html ?
Thank you all for your feedback. Well I was hoping that I will find a solution which will be very close to Kriezi’s slider. All you suggestions are excellent accordion menus but must be customized to meet my needs and the projects budjet is not enough to get going. The important detail is that the slides should all display an image no matter the state. At the end I think that I will go for the kwicks, but any more suggestions are welcome
Yeap partnuz! That is pretty close to what I’m looking for. That is kwicks, right?
