“The obvious solution, a devaluation, is a non-starter. Less than a tenth of the government’s debt is denominated in pesos, so devaluation would bring financial ruin to it as well as to private-sector borrowers. A big refinancing early this month of $29 billion-worth of commercial debt, through a swap for longer-dated bonds, bought a respite. But the shadow of a potentially catastrophic default still hangs over Argentina.”
1966: “Cabaret,” a musical loosely based on “I Am a Camera” and “The Berlin Stories,” opens at the Broadhurst Theatre, directed by Harold Prince with a book by Joe Masteroff, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The romance between American expatriate Cliff Bradshaw (Bert Convy) and the cabaret singer Sally Bowles (Jill Haworth) is contrasted with the equally doomed affair of their landlady, Frau Schneider (Lotte Lenya), and a Jewish fruit peddler, Herr Schultz (Jack Gilford). Both stories are intercut with scenes at the seedy Kit Kat Klub where Sally performs. Its host is an androgynous Emcee (Joel Grey) who welcomes viewers to enjoy the show’s risqué choreography (by Ronald Field) and lurid costumes (by Patricia Zipprodt). The production wins eight Tony Awards.
One of the main things about America, THE main thing maybe, is that it’s big. Like, really big. That bigness wasn’t really represented all that well by American Truck Simulator, which features a fairly truncated slice of America to drive all over. Acknowledging complaints that its roads are too teeny, developer SCS Software has announced that the sim’s world is soon to expand, from a map of 1:35 scale to one of 1:20 scale, basically resulting in 75% longer roads out in the wilderness. The new scale will be equivalent to that of the map in Euro Truck Simulator 2, and as you can see from this visual demonstration, there’ll be a pretty substantial increase in the size of the world.
SCS Software will be spending the next few months revamping the scale of the map in American Truck Simulator , taking it from a ratio of 1:35 to 1:20. In more straightforward terminology, that means the game’s map will get much bigger in scale. It also brings the game in line with Euro Truck Simulator 2’s own 1:20 scale.
If you are in Cornwall, on the other hand, a £30 contactless payment will cost you 60 pence sterling (or 68p with a credit card). This is much less attractive than in the euro zone, as Bank of Ireland will also charge you 2 per cent of the transaction value up to a maximum €11.43. This is the same charge as applies for a chip and pin transaction.
The strict laws surrounding fake currency also lead to some entertaining (and annoying) situations in the entertainment industry. You can’t use fake money on screen, so most of the briefcases of cash you see in movies are actually legit. There are some workarounds, though: you can use money that’s substantially bigger or smaller than the real thing, or make a brick of green paper with real notes top and bottom.
In addition to managing the behavioral health services for Floyd, Willowbrooke at Tanner continues to offer its innovative partial hospitalization program, providing intensive outpatient care for adults, children and adolescents; the intensive outpatient program, providing a less-intensive level of care than PHP and often serving as a step-down service to help patients continue their recovery; the Tanner Center for Behavioral Health, offering state-approved Core services; the Tanner Intensive Family Intervention Program (TIFIP), providing in-home counseling for families and treating children experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties; program tracks, with programs focused on addressing problems such as anger management, truancy, bullying, substance abuse, trauma and more; animal-assisted therapy, with certified animal therapists; innovative equine therapy programs; expressive therapy, using art, performance and music to help patients express themselves; and more.
For the RPA crews, the personal dangers are more ambiguous. The debate over the legality and wisdom of some RPA missions has obscured a truly revolutionary shift taking place: We can now wage war from a distance, enabling men and women in military service to work from home, so to speak. Recast Tom Cruise in the 2016 remake of “Top Gun,: and he’d perhaps be working the midnight shift, getting home in time for bowls of Cheerios with the wife and kids, and then catching up on sleep during the daylight hours. After a particularly tough mission, he might allow himself a couple of beers at Buffalo Wild Wings with his squadron buddies before making the drive from Creech back to suburban Nevada. On days off, he’d run errands at the mall, hit the gym, coach soccer. He’d experience bouts of exhaustion and cynicism, the traits that exemplify burnout, and he’d eventually encounter a fellow pilot suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. (According to Air Force research, 4% of RPA operators report symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder — a rate that is roughly on par with that of emergency responders, but lower than rates typical of troops returning from war zones.) Sometimes, on his way to work, Cruise might pass protesters at the base entrance, and try to stay focused on the soldiers he’d be supporting that day from his drone station. And one day, when the long, tedious, irregular hours got to be too much, he’d look to transfer to Holloman to become an instructor — or leave the Air Force entirely. Job prospects in the civilian drone industry, despite its many controversies, are trending positive.
Some people think that smart contracts can solve this problem. They start with the fact that each smart contract contains its own miniature database, over which it has full control. All read and write operations on this database are mediated by the contract’s code, making it impossible for one contract to read another’s data directly. (This tight coupling between data and code is called encapsulation, and is the foundation of the popular object-oriented programming paradigm).
If you’ve ever downloaded mods on Nexus and something’s gone wrong, you’ll know it can be more of a pain in the arse than a 12 hour drive through Europe – even with Nexus Mod Manager. There are no willies on Steam, mind. Swings and roundabouts, I suppose.
