    KRASNOYARSK, Russia, - The Russian Federal Bailiff Service said pictures of persistent debtors will be placed on coasters in bars and restaurants in Siberia's Krasnoyarsk Territory. Natalia Fomina, a spokeswoman for the service, said officials are hoping the pictures will be recognized by citizens who will report the culprits to authorities, RIA Novosti reported Friday. "We have already tested this practice when we put the pictures of debtors in the newspapers with explanations of their debts, and asked local residents to report on the whereabouts of these wanted persons," Fomina said. "People respond. They call us and help us. We...

    Will the real Rick Santorum please stand up? BEFORE the November 2, election, Rick Santorum defended Christine O’Donnell in her US Senate race in Delaware (though trying to have it both ways to some extent). Now, AFTER the election, Rick Santroum is now trying to jump on the bandwagon and attack the GOP’s losing candidates. Goal: NOT win elections, NOT learn how to win elections, but simply for personal aggrandizement by Rick Santorum. ________________________________________________ On September 21, 2010, Rick Santorum defended Christine O’Donnell as a candidate on Greta Van Sustren’s “On the Record” Rick Santorum Santorum — famous for dumping...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken today urged the Senate to pass an extension of unemployment and COBRA benefits before the end of the year, citing the 10 percent unemployment rate and the annual rise in heating bills coming this winter. The Minnesota Democrats joined 22 other senators who signed a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, asking for a vote on the issue by Dec. 31. A 65 percent subsidy of premium costs for those with COBRA benefits, authorized by the stimulus bill, is set to expire at the end of the year.

    BOSTON - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama got more than an education when he attended Harvard Law School in the late 1980s. He also got a healthy stack of parking tickets, most of which he never paid. The Illinois Senator shelled out $375 in January - two weeks before he officially launched his presidential campaign - to finally pay for 15 outstanding parking tickets and their associated late fees.

    Mumbai: In view of its strong balance of payments and comfortable foreign exchange reserves position, India has been selected for the first time by International Monetary Fund to become a member of its Financial Transaction Plan. Accordingly, India has contributed US dollar 205 million to the FTP, thus turning from a debtor into a creditor to IMF. The decision to select India as a member of FTP from September-November 2002 quarter sends a strong signal of the country's strength and the resilience of its external sector to the international community, an RBI release said in Mumbai on Saturday. The IMF...

    As Cuba's economy weakens further and its foreign debt soars, U.S. industries increase the push for trade and the extension of credit to the island. After years of steady -- if slow -- recovery from its collapse in the early 1990s, Cuba's economy is now stalled amid a fall in tourism, a post-Sept. 11 drop in remittances, hurricane damages and low export prices. Last year, Cuba devalued its currency by 18 percent, defaulted on some $500 million in loans and reportedly closed 12,000 hotel rooms. Last month it restricted the ability of some foreign investors to pocket their profits. Some...
