'Anyone connected to Assange liable for attack'

Jun 14, 2012 by

Britain's Supreme Court has rejected a request to reopen the extradition case of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. It brings him one step closer to being sent to Sweden, where he's wanted for questioning on sex crime allegations. Assange denies all accusations against him, saying they're politically motivated. There are fears his extradition could eventually see him being handed over to the US. For more on the developments in the Assange case RT talks to Afshin Rattansi, an author and award-winning journalist based in London.

Moody's cuts credit ratings of five Dutch banks

Original source

(Reuters) - Moody's Investors Service said on Friday it had downgraded five Dutch banks, four of them by two notches, and warned a Greek exit of the euro would see further cuts, kicking off a long-awaited round of downgrades for major European institutions.

Moody's set a stable outlook to the ratings for four of the groups but kept a negative outlook for ING Bank (ING.AS), meaning it could cut it again.

The downgrades will only add to pressure on European leaders to sort out the region's debt crisis, with a real test to the union coming this weekend as Greeks go to the polls. Moody's also warned that, were Greece to exit the euro, further ratings actions on European banks could well be needed.

The long-expected news had little immediate impact on financial markets in Asia, with the euro holding firm around $1.2616.

"Today's actions reflect Moody's view that Dutch banks will face difficult operating conditions throughout 2012 and possibly beyond," Moody's said in a statement.

The agency said there were heightened risks for creditors amidst elevated uncertainty and downside risks to the economic outlook and fragile investor confidence in Europe.

Moody's agency said it had cut the ratings by two notches to Aa2 for Rabobank Nederland RABOO.UL, to A2 for ING, to A2 for ABN AMRO Bank N.V. ABRGPG.UL, and to Baa2 for LeasePlan Corporation N.V. LEASP.UL.

The long-term debt and deposit ratings for SNS Bank N.V. SRSNS.UL were downgraded by one notch to Baa2. The short-term ratings for all the groups were unchanged.

Moody's said it had factored into the ratings an increased risk of Greece leaving the euro area, but this was currently not the central scenario.

"If a Greek exit became Moody's central scenario, further rating actions on European banks could well be needed," it added.

Egan-Jones cuts French credit rating from 'A-' to 'BBB+

Oh mon Dieu. Exécuter en hurlant!

Original Source

Egan Jones, the rating Agency, has downgraded France from A- to BBB+ on expectations on the back of "the deterioration in France's credit metrics combined with the needed supported for France's banks are likely to pressure the country," according to the official press released.

The agency also states despite "over the past 18 months France has been exempted from the rise in funding costs. However, as the crisis evolves, we expect that France will be pressured."

The challenge is for French president, said Egan-Jones, "Hollande will be under pressure to keep campaign promises which will ultimately hurt credit quality."

World's Smallest Diamond Coin: If You Put It In Your Pocket, You Will Never Find It

Scientists at the University of Glasgow have created an unusual tribute to Her Majesty the Queen to mark her Diamond Jubilee – the world’s smallest commemorative coin, made from a tiny sliver of diamond.

The ‘coin’, created at the University’s James Watt Nanofabrication Centre, measures just 750 nanometres across and features an image of the Queen’s profile just 580 nanometres high. A nanometre is one billionth of a metre. Around 1300 of the diamond coins could fit side by side on the width of the smallest letter on a five pence piece, and 2,600 billion of the coins would fill a volume equivalent to that of a pound coin.

The image was etched on a laboratory-grown diamond covered in a special polymer. Using high-resolution electron beam lithography, the profile of the Queen’s head was patterned onto the polymer. The pattern was then transferred to the diamond using a process known as ICP reactive ion etching.

The work was undertaken at the University of Glasgow by PhD student Andrew Greer under the direction of Dr David Moran, lead of the Nano-Electronic Diamond Devices and Systems group.

Dr Moran said: “We’re proud to be celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with the creation of the world’s smallest diamond coin.

“Diamond is not just an attractive material for use in jewellery; it also has a range of unique physical properties which make it ideal for use in a range of advanced fields of engineering. It’s an excellent thermal conductor and has a high tolerance for radiation, which makes it perfect for use in applications such as electronic transistors and robust enough to be used in challenging environments such as outer space.

“We’re researching a wide range of practical applications for diamond technology and creating this diamond coin is an excellent way to demonstrate the capabilities of the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.”

The creation of the coin was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre houses more than £20m of nanofabrication tools in a 750 square-metre clean room environment. The Centre is collaborating with more than 90 different universities and research institutes around the world. Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd provides commercial access to the Centre’s facilities and expertise. More than 250 companies have benefited from nanofabrication services delivered by Kelvin Nanotechnology Ltd.

Capital flees Greece ahead of polls

A quick video on the deteriorating financial and banking situation in Greece. Currently $1 Bullion are being withdrawn (or wired to other countries) per day!

To get this in perspective the GDP of Greece is $300 Billion. So allowing for weekends and public holidays the Greeks are removing 100% of the daily GDP of the country from the local banking system everyday, how can this not end badly?

Loved that the old folk are stocking up on dried food and toilet paper. What was not said was that they are buying gold and ammunition as well.
