France/MINISTÈRE DE LA SANTE
I do not believe at all, but not all, the figure of the Ministry of health, sorry, but I’m more apt to believe the doctors, because seen blunders of the Ministry of health since the left was in power, and that they should more in larger, that the hefty East, (the difference of the numbers of doctors and those in the Ministry) when to teletransmission figuresI have a big doubt, as figures from the announcement of Sarkozy, to the position of Secretary of the UMP, also, but I presume that this is from the famous criminal cyber attack, that the UMP headquarters had just before the election.Say, I put 30 pins to understand.
Italy, with its migrants
The crisis looming in Greece maintains the concern of the vast majority of Europeans who see a new risk of explosion of the euro area. Some consider that this new difficulty would be rather beneficial and would require everyone to take responsibility.
For many observers, the possible arrival in power of the anti-austerite, Syriza party, announces complicated and painful aftermath for everyone. The leader of the radical left, Alexis Tsipras, is the bane of Europeans, bankers and investors. And for good reason, it considers that the Greece should turn its back on all the commitments it has already signed and change policy.That change would automatically go through non-payment of the debt and the lifting of austerity measures.A very simple program that could drain a majority of votes during the next legislative. It is also a demagogic and very contradictory ultra program. Demagogic because everyone knows that the non-repayment of a debt automatically cut all funding. The contract of trust is broken. Demagogic, because a responsible Government cannot raise the bulk of the reforms which have been undertaken in the country. Starting by the installation of a tax system that worked or a series of administrative restructuring or privatization.http://www.Atlantico.fr/offres-AbonnementThey will quickly regret the European austerity when they will accept the ‘unique’ assistance of the IMF. That instance will not fail to be called to the bedside of Athens as a banker last spring. The economic and social impact combined with geopolitical imbalance may have uncontrollable consequences for the entire region. Second scenario, from the new majority government committed a new negotiation with the troika and find a compromise acceptable to all. Purpose, avoid the lack of credit and the expulsion from the euro zone.In this case, everyone hopes that this new crisis will serve as a lesson. The absolute necessity will be to build a new governance of the euro area. Obviously more federal, perhaps with two zones euros.A first core of country strong and supportive and a second region of country younger with less rigid bonds and, therefore, the benefits and less generous rights. In this new organization, the misadventures of the Greece will prove at least that it is hard to go against markets. You have to be very rich and very strong to defy its bankers, especially when it is needed.The Greece offers a spectacular lesson to all other Member States. Solidarity is nothing other than the sharing of the difficulties. This cannot walk unless eurozone Member countries respect the rules of the game that they themselves have signed. It can only walk in the future if, and only if Member countries are converting to federalism. The Greece crisis will perhaps, this time, requiring Member countries to invent a different Europe.

‘Ghost ships’ new tactic of drug traffickers
Two days earlier, the same helicopter had already filed a crew of Coast Guard to take control of another ship, abandoned by its crew, the Blue Sky M, carrying nearly 800 migrants. « A catastrophe was avoided », the Navy had then welcomed.This cargo, flying flag Moldovan, is arrived Wednesday before dawn in Gallipoli, in Puglia (South East), where hundreds of illegal immigrants, all Syrians, were taken in charge by the authorities.Two cargo ships abandoned drifting these days off the coast of Italy with more than 1,200 illegal immigrants on Board show that traffickers do not hesitate to use new tactics, yet more perilous, to manage the constant migratory flows via the Mediterranee.outre common ways used so far here, fishing boats or tyres for boating or sailing vessels, networks of traffickers use more and more cargo ships of opportunity or vessels waiting for case-sensitive to deceive the coast guard patrolling the maritime borders these old boats are sold all over the world, « which is legal », says the AFP David Olsen, expert from the maritime newspaper Lloyd’s List. « They are sold on internet sites and even Ebay », is it.These cargos are worth « less than the price of an apartment in London ». « There are people who, sipping their beer around a table, agree to sell an old boat.

The fight against traffickers, a priority for the European Union in 2015
The Italy faces for several years with an influx of illegal immigrants who try to reach Europe by the Mediterranean Sea at the risk of their lives, at a rate of about 400 arrivals a day.
