In the summer of 2010 my family had our last vacation with all five of us together. It was my parents, my older brother, my little sister, and I. I was seventeen at the time and my sister was eleven, almost twelve. We were vacationing in the Shenandoah Mountains in West Virginia, and the whole way there my family said things like, “Look! A deer!” “Look! A bear!” and other woodland creatures. We got to our timeshare and my dad and brother decided to go on a hike for some male bonding time, leaving us three girls there. We were preparing dinner when my mom looked out the window and exclaimed, “Look! A badger!” A few seconds later I jokingly said, “Look! A unicorn!” And my sister immediately responded with, “Where?!” Mom and I burst out laughing, and we haven’t let it go since.

Rihanna's 'Anti' Looks To Top Charts After First Full Sales Week

Rihanna’s highly anticipated album, Anti, did not top the Billboard album charts as expected, but it still managed to earn a platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.

The album earned a platinum rating after Tidal – Jay Z’s streaming music service that partnered with Rihanna – teamed up with Samsung to give one million downloads of the album away to fans. Billboard’s policies do not count promotional giveaways of albums and therefore the one million downloads given out did not help Rihanna climb the blockbuster album chart.

Nielsen’s report notes that Anti has sold less than 1,000 units, with one Tidal subscriber telling The New York Times that only 460 albums have been purchased. Further Nielsen data shows that Anti did have 4.2 million streams and 126,000 sales of singles off the album. This puts her at No. 27 for the album’s first week on the Billboard 200.

A spokesperson for Tidal told the Times that the reason Anti didn’t top the charts this week was because it was released late Thursday after the Samsung giveaway ended. The accounting week ends midnight on Thursday, which didn’t leavemuch time to rack up sales.

Rihanna was able to land the No. 1 spot on iTune’s internal charts and is expected to climb the charts in the coming weeks.

However, this is still her weakest opening week on Billboard’s album chart. Her last album, 2012’s Unapologetic, opened at No. 1 and all seven of her earlier albums were in the top 10.

Can Rihanna’s Anti knock Adele’s 25 out of the No. 1 spot next week? More importantly, would this affect Adele’s dream to have Rihanna in her squad?

One hundred years ago, a deadly virus nearly decimated the world’s population. Dubbed the “Revelation Virus” since it almost brought about the end of days, it left survivors scrambling to repopulate. Thus laws were made in countries across the world stating that each citizen must produce at least one offspring in their lifetime, usually by a certain age.

In present day United States, that age is thirty and Dean Winchester is an unmated, childless alpha nearing his twenty-ninth birthday. The only problem is Dean is also a bounty hunter who has no room in his life for a mate or any pups. With his thirtieth birthday and a jail sentence looming on the horizon if he doesn’t have a pup in the near future, Dean must find a way to meet the antiquated law’s requirements while still being able to maintain his current lifestyle.

鐵人式救災 賴清德市府團隊背後支撐

維冠大樓倒塌進入第6天,不只台南市長賴清德疲於奔命,市府一級主管也全部銷假,分工合作,投入救災和安置工作。還有當地選出的新科立委王定宇和議員郭國文,也從地震第一時間就趕到現場,6天來一直跟在賴清德的旁邊,協助分擔工作,沒有一個人喊苦。

戴上N95口罩,帶著災民家屬踩上瓦礫堆中,親自說明挖掘情況,傾聽和溝通,是這場災難中,除了救災,賴清德最重視的一部份。

災民vs.台南市長賴清德:「孩子找到了嗎?我們不能從這裏過去,好,我等一下叫一個人帶你進去。」

災民家屬:「我求求你幫幫忙。」

找不到家人的,全都想找市長幫忙,但市長只有一個,幸好,震災後第一個趕到維冠大樓的新科立委王定宇,就像分身一樣。

新科立委王定宇:「你先找地方坐下來,有派人處理了,我是這個區選出來的,這些都是我的親人,這是我的責任,我是來到這邊差不多30、40個小時,才想到要打電話回去,那已經過了年初一了。」

因為對地理環境的了解,行政院長張善政視察時,王定宇一路解說,也向家屬報告最新搶救進度,但每當又抬出罹難者時,總會感性的哽咽。

新科立委王定宇:「有一個倖存者我們把她救出來,我覺得最痛苦的部份,在於很多事情,你已經無能為力,很多事情你看到,媽媽抱著孩子你就想問自己說,如果早一點怎麼樣?會怎麼樣?可是這個問題不能一直問,你一直問自己你會發瘋。」

6天下來和賴清德併肩任戰的還有市議員郭國文,化身貼身祕書,幫忙拿道具,收拾麥克風和音箱,甚至指揮現場秩序。

台南市議員郭國文:「等一下喔,那個他第1位,你第2位,好不好,你第3位這樣好不好,要不要穿這個背心的時候我也很掙扎,但是你必須身分上要讓人家識別,民眾他根本不曉得公部門誰跟誰負責,他的事情要找誰他根本不清楚。」

服務處距離維冠只有200公尺,郭國文成了最忙的市議員,每天在現場奔波,還跌倒造成手指擦傷。

台南市議員郭國文:「沒關係,沒關係,小事情。」

民意代表動起來,擔任災民和公部門之間的溝通橋樑,台南市一級主管當然也全部銷假上班,具有土木專業背景的副市長曾旭正和工務局長吳宗榮,被賦予搶救工程的重責大任,鏡頭看不到的還有民政局和社會局,負責後勤安置以及喪葬事宜,每個人也都是不眠不休。

台南市民政局長陳宗彥:「那個本來就是責任,我覺得這個本來就是責任。」

新科立委王定宇vs.民眾:「定宇啊!要保重啊!不要緊,家屬比較重要。」

賴清德鐵人式救災的背後,是一群好兄弟,好夥伴的患難與共。(民視新聞綜合報導)

Mediobanca: nel I semestre utile netto +23%, coefficienti patrimoniali sopra requisiti

Mediobanca ha chiuso il primo semestre dell'esercizio fiscale 2015/2016 con un utile netto pari a 321,1 milioni di euro, in crescita del 23% rispetto al corrispondente periodo dell'anno prima. Le plusvalenze da cessioni di partecipazioni per 93 milioni sono state pressoché assorbite da oneri non ricorrenti per 72 milioni, in gran parte relativi al contributo al fondo di risoluzione bancaria. Il margine di interesse è salito del 10% a 604,3 milioni, mentre le commissioni sono scese del 12,6% a 227,4 milioni. A fine dicembre il coefficiente patrimoniale Cet1 si è attestato al 12,4% in regime transitorio e al 13,4% a regime, ben sopra al requisito minimo fissato dalla Bce pari a all'8,75%. Nel solo secondo trimestre l'utile netto è sceso a 76,8 milioni dai 100,6 milioni di un anno prima. Mediobanca, emerge dalla nota, ha proseguito il piano di riduzione dell’esposizione azionaria con cessioni complessive per 295 milioni.
