Schäuble: ‘This is a performance test, but not a national crisis’

first_img“The reactions from abroad show that Europe and many other countries in the world are waiting for us. Our neighbors want a reliable partner at their side,” said Schäuble, who previously served as finance minister.French President Emmanuel Macron told reporters Monday that it was not in his country’s “interest for things to get blocked” in Germany. Merkel also cancelled a news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte scheduled for Monday, Reuters reported, and has come under fire for not attending an EU social summit in Sweden last week, as she was needed during the coalition talks at home.Peter Altmaier, head of the chancellery and acting finance minister, on Tuesday urged political parties to decide in the next three weeks whether they could form a government and called for more “clarity.”“We stand by our responsibility and we are ready in the meantime to ensure this country has a stable and reliable government — that is our trademark,” Altmaier told broadcaster ZDF. “Just like ‘Made in Germany,’ Germany’s brand is having a stable and reliable government.” Germany’s failure so far to form a new government is a “a performance test, but not a national crisis,” Parliament President Wolfgang Schäuble said Tuesday.“The task is huge, but manageable,” Schäuble told MPs in the Bundestag, adding that German politicians “bear responsibility for our country and for Europe.”Schäuble’s comments come amid a time of political uncertainty in Germany after exploratory coalition talks with Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc, the Greens and the liberal Free Democrats (FDP) collapsed on Sunday when the FDP decided to pull out of the discussions.last_img read more

iPhone 5 launch draws Apple fans worldwide

first_imgHONG KONG | In a now familiar global ritual, Apple fans jammed shops from Sydney to Paris to pick up the tech juggernaut’s latest iPhone.A customer cheers with staff members of Apple Inc. as the Apple store in Hong Kong started selling iPhone 5 Friday, Sept. 21, 2012. Apple’s Asian fans jammed the tech juggernaut’s shops in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore to pick up the latest version of its iPhone. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung)Eager buyers formed long lines Friday at Apple Inc. stores in Asia, Europe and North America to be the first to get their hands on the latest version of the smartphone.In London, some shoppers had camped out for a week in a queue that snaked around the block. In Hong Kong, the first customers were greeted by staff cheering, clapping, chanting “iPhone 5! iPhone 5!” and high-fiving them as they were escorted one-by-one through the front door.The smartphone will be on sale in the U.S. and Canada hours after its launch in Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Britain, France and Germany. It will launch in 22 more countries a week later. The iPhone 5 is thinner, lighter, has a taller screen, faster processor, updated software and can work on faster “fourth generation” mobile networks.The handset has become a hot seller despite initial lukewarm reviews and new map software that is glitch prone. Apple received 2 million orders in the first 24 hours of announcing its release date, more than twice the number for the iPhone 4S in the same period when that phone launched a year ago.In a sign of the intense demand, police in Osaka, Japan, were investigating the theft of nearly 200 iPhones 5s, including 116 from one shop alone, Kyodo News reported.Analysts have estimated Apple will ship as many as 10 million of the new iPhones by the end of September.Some fans went to extremes to be among the first buyers by arriving at Apple’s flagship stores day ahead of the release.In downtown Sydney, Todd Foot, 24, showed up three days early to nab the coveted first spot. He spent about 18 hours a day in a folding chair, catching a few hours’ sleep each night in a tent on the sidewalk.Foot’s dedication was largely a marketing stunt, however. He writes product reviews for a technology website that will give away the phone after Foot reviews it.“I just want to get the phone so I can feel it, compare it and put it on our website,” he said while slumped in his chair.In Paris, the phone launch was accompanied by a workers’ protest — a couple dozen former and current Apple employees demonstrated peacefully to demand better work benefits. Some decried what they called Apple’s transformation from an offbeat company into a multinational powerhouse.But the protesters — urged by a small labor union to demonstrate at Apple stores around France — were far outnumbered by lines of would-be buyers on the sidewalk outside the store near the city’s gilded opera house.Not everyone lining up at the various Apple stores was an enthusiast, though. In Hong Kong, university student Kevin Wong, waiting to buy a black 16 gigabyte model for 5,588 Hong Kong dollars ($720), said he was getting one “for the cash.” He planned to immediately resell it to one of the numerous grey market retailers catering to mainland Chinese buyers. China is one of Apple’s fastest growing markets but a release date for the iPhone 5 there has not yet been set.Wong was required to give his local identity card number when he signed up for his iPhone on Apple’s website. The requirement prevents purchases by tourists including mainland Chinese, who have a reputation for scooping up high-end goods on trips to Hong Kong because there’s no sales tax and because of the strength of China’s currency. Even so, the mainlanders will probably buy it from the resellers “at a higher price — a way higher price,” said Wong, who hoped to make a profit of HK$1,000 ($129).Tokyo’s glitzy downtown Ginza district not only had a long line in front of the Apple store, but another across the main intersection at Softbank, the first carrier in Japan to offer iPhones.Hidetoshi Nakamura, a 25-year-old auto engineer, said he’s an Apple fan because it’s an innovator.“I love Apple,” he said, standing near the end of a two-block-long line, reading a book and listening to music on his iPod.“It’s only the iPhone for me.”___Kristen Gelineau in Sydney, Yuri Kageyama in Tokyo, Faris Mokhtar in Singapore, Tom Rayner in London and Oleg Cetinic in Paris contributed to this report.Follow Kelvin Chan on at twitter.com/chanmanlast_img read more

Martin takes on all comers to win

first_img(L to R) Robert Cross & Peter Grey.PSC Growling Swan Golf, played out of “Bogey’s Bar & Grill”Thursday, Jan 23 Emerald G.C. StablefordEleven golfers took up the challenge and travelled out to have a crack at Emerald Golf Course. Usually a good course but from time to time it can be a bit dry.The course as it played was in good nic, all in all it wasn’t too bad. Yet again there was nobody on the course, we virtually had it to ourselves. Weather was good to us yet again but as the day got longer it did heat up and became a little uncomfortable but at the end of the day it is Thailand and we know that it can get hot. We were playing one flight only and again with all novelties in play, would love to be in a position to play more than the one flight.Well to say the result was close would be an understatement and the scores were pretty good as well. Both Martin Kempton and Robert Cross returned with 41 points. To the countback to sort this out and as it turned out 1 point (on the back nine) was the difference between the two of them. Third spot again had to be referred to the countback. After both golfers returned with 39 points, it was Paul Sharples who got the nod from Dave Maw.
