      They’re not out of the woods yet.

      “For one thing, Greece will not receive any of a €7 billion installment from the bailout until it has carried out all remaining reforms required by creditors, some of which Mr. Tsipras had pledged to roll back. Greece must also show that it is not abandoning austerity measures unilaterally.”

      Still early but right now it looks like the Eurozone is still not budging on the austerity measures.

        Shame they didn’t behave like this against Putin – sometimes people just never learn to believe what they see.

      I think I mentioned this as potential use of 3D printers – Awesome. I hope the Brother’s Keeper Initiative will push youth of color into STEM fields. This is truly amazing.

    Just found out while I was lounging around on Hilton Head Island last Friday, my sister attended this event, got to shake President Carter’s hand and got him to sign her copy of his book.
    Could I be more jealous? Only if it was PBO (or FLOTUS or VP Uncle Joe) instead.
