Israel’s credit rating is stable,

 Israel’s credit rating is stable,
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu made the following remarks at the start of the Cabinet meeting today:
“Today we are holding the last Cabinet meeting of the 33rd Government and we are preparing for the first meeting of the new government. I always regard the task of leading the country as being entrusted with a valuable asset – the country – and my responsibility as Prime Minister, and ours as a government, is to return to the public a more secure, prosperous and developed country.
As I summarize the activity of the 33rd government, I can certainly say that despite the difficulties, and there were many, we advanced – during these years – the State of Israel on three main axes. In the over two years of this government’s existence, since its first meeting, the region around us has been roiling and stormy. And despite the many attempts to challenge us on our borders, we rebuffed all of these attempts bar none: From Hezbollah in southern Lebanon, through Iran’s attempts to develop a new front against us on the Golan Heights, to the unceasing efforts to bring advanced weaponry from Syria to Lebanon, and including Hamas’s efforts to perpetrate strategic attacks against us in the south. In Operation Protective Edge, we hit Hamas as hard as it has ever been struck since its founding.
Above all, we have acted unceasingly against Iran’s attempts to arm itself with nuclear weapons. This effort is at its peak. We will not relent. We will continue to maintain Israel’s right to defend itself under any conditions and in any situation.
In the diplomatic sphere, we made another effort to move forward on an agreement with the Palestinians, but once again when there was a need to make tough decisions; Abu Mazen decided to abandon the negotiations. He appealed unilaterally, and in contravention of all the agreements, to the international arena. He abandoned the negotiations and entered into an alliance with Hamas.
In the diplomatic arena, we started to develop new markets for the Israeli economy – in both the diplomatic and the economic arenas – vis-à-vis the giant economies of Asia: India, China and Japan. We joined the Latin American Pacific Alliance as an observer.
We are developing a new industry that is essential to the future of humanity – cybersecurity. This is developing very quickly and dramatically. We are devoting many resources to it, including a special IDF unit and my instructions are to not only develop this ability for the security of the State of Israel, but to integrate it with Be’er Sheva and the Negev, with our academic ability and with industrial development for Israeli and foreign companies. This is happening before our eyes and is changing the face of the Negev and – in effect – the face of the country. It will turn – it is already turning – Be’er Sheva into a global cyber capital.
We raised the minimum wage again. Unemployment continues to be low. Israel’s credit rating is stable, which is no small feat given the economic upheavals that are continuing to rock the world. Additionally, we have continued the accelerated link between the Negev and the Galilee and the center of the country. In the past six years, we laid twice as much railroad track as in the previous six years. We did likewise with highways and interchanges and we are still busy.
We completely blocked illegal migration across our borders, something that no other country in the western world has succeeded in doing. The fence that we built has completely proven itself. We added to this legislative and enforcement measures, as well as others, and in this context I note the opposite trend that is now taking place in Western Europe. As Europe notes an increase of hundreds of percent in the influx of illegal migrants, thousands of illegal migrants are leaving Israel per annum. This is a very important achievement for assuring Israel’s image and character as a Jewish and democratic state.
There is no doubt that much work is yet before us and I promise to do everything so that the next government continues to do it and will even add many more important actions in various areas for the security and welfare of Israel’s citizens.
I would like to thank the members of the outgoing government once again and may we continue to work on behalf of the State of Israel in order to build its security, assure its prosperity and – of course – continue its development.”

Chevrolet Inaugurates Renovated Sports Ground at Rebecca Belilious English Institution in Kolkata

  • As part of its continued commitment to demonstrate that where there’s play, there’s beautiful possibilities, Chevrolet completely rebuilds school’s football pitch in Kolkata, India
  • The transformed pitch at the Rebecca Belilious English Institution creates a safe place for children to play and encourages kids to stay in school
Kolkata, India – As part of GM India’s CSR initiative, Chevrolet today inaugurated the renovated Rebecca Belilious Sports Ground at the Rebecca Belilious English Institution. This is part of Chevrolet’s commitment to demonstrating that where there is play, there’s beautiful possibilities.

The outdoor sports pitch – located at Tikiapara, Howrah, in Kolkata – will serve as a safe place for children and the local community to play. The pitch will also be used as a venue for local events and sports matches.  

“The previous pitch was nothing but an open space covered in dirt and mud. The children of Tikiapara had no option but to play on it, despite its poor and dilapidated condition,” said P. Balendran, Vice President, General Motors India. “Chevrolet saw a place that could be completely rebuilt to allow the students to turn their lives around, encourage them to stay in school and unlock the potential for their future.”

As part of today’s festivities, Manchester United Legend Mikael Silvestre shared personal insights about his own journey on and off the field and how play has served a key role throughout his life. He was joined by Sandip Dutta, trustee of the land; Mamoon, the founder of the school; and a host of other dignitaries and well-wishers.   

The football pitch was revitalized for Slum Soccer, an organization that uses football to transcend race, religion, language and gender to bring about a change in the lives of street dwellers.

“With this pitch, we will be reaching out to the most under-served children and youth of Kolkata,” said Dr. Abhijeet Barse, CEO of Slum Soccer. “Throughout the years, we have seen the impact and positive change that football and play can have on a child. Our partnership with Chevrolet will bring new possibilities to the Tikiapara community.”

Coinciding with today’s ceremony, Chevrolet and Coaches Across Continents (CAC) created a tailored program for local football coaches to learn more about how the sport can be used to tackle and resolve life’s many challenges. The CAC staffers who trained the new coaches will remain involved in the community by providing ongoing remote support, with curriculum tailored to suit the local area.

To mark the occasion Chevrolet also donated 250 One World Futbols to the Rebecca Belilious English Institution. Chevrolet is the founding sponsor of One World Play Project, creator of the ultra-durable One World Futbol, which can withstand the most rugged conditions – never needing a pump or going flat, even when punctured. As a part of a three-year partnership with One World Play Project, Chevrolet has pledged to support the donation and distribution of 1.5 million Chevrolet-branded One World Futbols to youth in war-stricken zones, refugee camps, disaster areas, and other underprivileged communities around the world.

Chevrolet and the One World Play Project have delivered more than 28,000 of the ultra-durable footballs across the India. The donations have supported initiatives that are focused on health and wellness, community building, gender equality, HIV/AIDS, education and conflict resolution. In April, the partners also provided footballs to the Government School in Navlakh Umbre as a part of the larger Chevrolet Day of Play global initiative that aimed to bring positive changes in local communities.

In addition, Chevrolet supported football pitch renovations in Bangkok (Thailand)Bandung (Indonesia)Chicago (USA)and Hammanskraal (South Africa) in 2014. The global automotive brand is planning several additional announcements and fan engagements around the world this year as part of its sponsorship of Manchester United and partnership with the One World Play Project.

was just $0.559b.
When Corp China is mopping up $377b in IPOs next seven days – Indian
IPO Yield was barely $32.9b in 10 years, just $0.5b in 2014-15
including April2015.

Corrupting Indian Corporate – China Corporate are Inventing, Learning,

China Tsunami Sinks D-St
An avalanche of IPOs in China is pulling down Indian stocks. Money
managers in Singapore, Hong Kong and London are withdrawing money from
Dalal Street to bet on Chinese companies as the regulator there
resumed approving IPOs since December 2014. In a span of a week,
between May 5 and May 12, 25 Chinese companies would mobilise $377
billion, according to Bloomberg data. This is 11 times the amount
Indian companies raised through IPOs in the past decade and even
dwarfs India’s forex reserves. The amount is almost three times the
cumulative FII equity investments into India since 1992-93. Chinese
IPOs are attractive since rules force companies to issue shares at a
substantial discount to valuation of listed peers. In the past one
year, all IPOs have recorded more than 40% listing gains. “We have
heard from sell-side brokers that some of the selling in India is
attributable to the fact that Chinese markets have outperformed
India,” said Nilesh Shah, MD, Kotak Mutual Fund. Chances are Indian
markets could remain choppy with the Chinese regulator planning to
clear more IPO applications, reports Ramkrishna Kashelkar.
