Exclusive: Recording shows how UBS drove reluctant brokers to sell high-risk Puerto Rico funds
Yahoo News - about 2 years
The concerns, which the brokers said were based on their own views and feedback from clients, included allegations the funds  suffered from low liquidity, excessive leverage, oversupply and instability.  They were wary, in part, because many of the funds were loaded up with debt of the Puerto Rican government and related entities that was underwritten by UBS, the people said. Their views were unacceptable to Miguel Ferrer, then the chairman of UBS Financial Services Inc of Puerto Rico, a unit of UBS AG.

ROBOCOP Adds Gary Oldman: Nice Try
Boom Tron - almost 5 years
Gary Oldman Fails To Justify Existence Of ROBOCOP Remake I truly hate this remakes trend movies are going through. Sure, there are exceptions, but for every The Fly or The Thing, there’s, oh, I dunno, every other fucking remake ever made! News that the RoboCop remake is moving forward makes me hope that stupid people are right, and the world ends this year. Maybe I’m being a bit extreme, but I do find this news pretty sad. Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 film is both a hilarious satire on commercialisation and an awesome action film, moving with boundless energy. It has to be one of the most purely entertaining films I’ve ever seen. It was cool, it had gigantic space-hopper-sized balls, and is endlessly quotable. The film feels as relevant as ever, and still looks sharp as hell, which in my book, are further reasons why a remake would be redundant. Apparently no one in Hollywood reads my book (even though I sent it with a nice fruit basket and homemade biscuits), because the logic is jus ...

ISRAEL: Trying classic, digital and celebrity diplomacy
LATimes - over 5 years
The Palestinian plan to ask the United Nations for statehood recognition has preoccupied Israel's leaders and news media for months, making "September" a code word for trouble ahead. Public officials have sounded dire warnings, each with a metaphor describing what awaits, including "tsunami" (Defense Minister Ehud Barak), "iceberg" (lawmaker Isaac Herzog) and "wall" (President Shimon Peres). Last-minute efforts continue to reach a compromise that could keep Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas from making what some commentators call a game-changing move, and spare the U.S. from resorting to exercising its veto power in the Security Council. One way or another other, "September" is here. If classic diplomacy has limits, there's always Internet diplomacy. Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon is one of the country's most social-media-minded officials. This summer he posted on the Web a video titled "The Israel-Palestinian Conflict: The Truth About The Peace Process." It gained plenty ...
