Merkel Rebukes Us And Uk Over Spying

5975533547542174056.jpg "Our answer can only be: No, this can't be right. Because it touches thevery core of what cooperation between friendly and allied countries is about:trust." Merkel said the reported revelations by Snowden, the fugitive former NSAcontractor who remains in hiding in Moscow, had hit "with great force" half ayear ago. The chancellor, who grew up under communism in the former East Germany,reiterated that Berlin was now driving efforts for a European no-spyingagreement and new rules to safeguard data privacy. But she played down expectations for a similar deal with Washington, whichhas been reluctant to set a precedent fearing other countries would demandsimilar agreements. "Many say the attempts for such an agreement are doomed to web site failure from theoutset, an unrealistic endeavour. That may be," Merkel said. "Certainly theproblem won't be solved by just one visit." But she vowed she would continue to argue the case strongly. "Billions of people living in undemocratic states today are looking veryclosely at how the democratic world responds to security threats - whether itacts with self-confidence and prudence, or whether it cuts off the branch thatmakes it so attractive in the learn more eyes of billions: the freedom and dignity of theindividual."

Paris Saint Germain's Spending Spree Continues As Yohan Cabaye Joins From Newcastle United

5974659729962359456.jpg I'm really very proud too to be a part of this immense project PSG want to build and I'm eager to start with my new team," Cabaye said. "I'd like to thank Newcastle for allowing this transfer to happen. It's difficult to turn PSG down these days. I clicking here want to win trophies and PSG united states offer me that. There was no hesitation on my part." Cabaye is renowned for his outstanding shooting from distance and is a free kick specialist, giving PSG that extra bit of firepower that it lacked in a workmanlike midfield featuring ball-winners Blaise Matuidi and Thiago Motta. He could make his debut in Friday's home game against Bordeaux. Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye arrives for a medical check at a Paris hospital.

'mitt' The Movie Says Much About The Man

5894551673668676298.jpg But the movie is intimate, which is never a word associated with the Romney campaign or any modern campaign, for that matter. The filmmaker, Greg Whiteley, takes us into the inner sanctum, or the inner Radisson, as the case may be, since so much of campaign life happens on the generic couches of cookie-cutter hotels. So its a little bracing when the candidate who tiptoed around his religion blurts out that voters know him as the "flipping Mormon." Or, when Romney, who like all candidates, spent his days pitching himself as the unique solution to Americas problems and who never seemed ruffled, shows moments of doubt, suggesting at one point that he was a "flawed candidate." Weve read about Barack Obama having these kinds of moments, but weve never had this kind of sustained up-close look at the most covered president in history. Its also one thing to hear a son say he believes in his dad, as all the Romney boys did in their media interviews, but its another to watch Tagg Romney tear up as he tries to convince his father to run for president in the movies opening scene. "If you dont win, well still love you," he says. "The country may think of you as a laughingstock, [read] and well know the truth, and thats OK. But I think you have a duty to your country and to God to Rep. James Lankford Responds To Negative Attacks see what comes of it." Or, to watch Romney explain to his sons why his own father was the "real deal," while he merely achieved what he did because he was given a good start. When Romney realizes he has lost, his first questions are to his sons: He wants to know whether his loss will mess up their lives in any way.

5972866179446853652.jpg "I like to stick to the script," said Rondo. "I dont like change much. I wouldnt mind staying here the rest of my career. Things dont always seem to go that way, but like I said before, its just a business. I wouldn't mind extending another 10 years in Boston." Rondo said he believes his agent and Celtics brass talked earlier this month about an extension, but said he hasn't thought much about his next contract. Told that Ainge admitted that Rondo Kim Kardashian could command "star money" on the open market, Rondo replied, "Im making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living." Rondo said he'd let his agent handle all the numbers. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Thursday that the team had talked about a contract extension with Rondo, but the restrictive nature of the collective bargaining agreement at the moment makes it more likely that talks will escalate after this season. Hop HERE Kim Kardashian to read our breakdown of extension options for Rondo and why there's a possibility that both sides would have interest in a deal this summer.
