The devastating quake in Chile is thousands of times stronger than the one that hit Haiti

Chile earthquake has affected more than two million people

More than two million people have been affected by what international media and records have described as one of the five strongest earthquakes ever on record.

The devastating quake, thousands of times stronger than the one that hit Haiti, struck central Chile on February 27 2010.

But as the first realisation of destruction passed around the world, through television and the internet, the world subsequently prepared itself for the devastating waves that threatened the entire Pacific Rim. About 50 countries on the Pacific Ocean from New Zealand to Russia expected giant waves, in an anticipation of what occurred during the Indian Ocean tsunami disaster which killed more than 220 000 people in December 2004.

But the tsunami waves did not prove to be as high or as destructive as some had expected.

"The power of nature has again struck our country," Chilean president Michelle Bachelet said, cited by international media.

"We are once again put to the test, our ability to deal with adversity and get back on our feet. And we are examining every way to restore all the basic services in the country. But there's still a lot to do" Ms Bachelet said

She said that six of Chile's 15 regions are currently declared "catastrophe zones" in the aftermath of the quake.
it is apparent that Chile is coping considerably better with the disaster than Haiti.

BBC World Service reported that Chilean authorities had declined international assistance for now, saying they can cope with the situation, although "international aid is ready/or is being prepared to be dispatched if needed".

There are no reported Bulgarian casualties in the quake, or in the tsunamis that followed.

"This is a catastrophe of immense proportions, so it will be very difficult to give precise figures," Chile interior minister Edmundo Perez Yoma told CNN.

The 8.8 quake - one of the biggest ever - triggered a tsunami that has been sweeping across the Pacific, although waves were not as high as predicted.

Japan is still on high alert, with hundreds of thousands of people advised to evacuated areas at risk.

The 8.8 magnitude earthquake rocked Chile early Saturday, while most residents were sleeping. Reports say buildings shook while others collapsed as power went out in Santiago and other settlements in the area, 320km northeast of the quake's epicenter. Other parts of South America also felt the earthquake

Several strong aftershocks have followed the quake, including one with a 6.9

The largest earthquake ever recorded struck the same area of Chile on May 22 1960. The magnitude-9.5 quake killed 1655 people and left two million homeless. The tsunami that it caused killed people in Hawaii, Japan and the Philippines and caused damage to the west coast of the United States.

SANTIAGO, Chile – A massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake capable of tremendous damage struck central Chile early Saturday,shaking the capital for a minute

SANTIAGO, Chile – A massive 8.8-magnitude earthquake capable of tremendous damage struck central Chile early Saturday, shaking the capital for a minute and a half and setting off a tsunami.

Buildings collapsed and phone lines and electricity were down, making the extent of the damage difficult to determine. 176 people were killed, President Michele Bachelet said.

"We have had a huge earthquake," Bachelet said, speaking from an emergency response center in an appeal for Chileans to remain calm. "We're doing everything we can with all the forces we have. Any information we will share immediately."

Bachelet said early reports were that six people had been killed, and "without a doubt, with an earthquake of this magnitude, there will be more deaths."

She urged people to avoid traveling in the dark, since traffic lights are down, to avoid causing more fatalities.

The quake hit at 3:34 a.m. (0634 GMT; 1:34 a.m. EST) and was centered 200 miles (325 kilometers) southwest of the capital, Santiago, at a depth of 22 miles (35 kilometers) the U.S. Geological Survey reported.

The epicenter was just 70 miles (115 kilometers) from Concepcion, Chile's second-largest city, where more than 200,000 people live along the Bio Bio river, and 60 miles from the ski town of Chillan, a gateway to Andean ski resorts that was destroyed in a 1939 earthquake.

An Associated Press Television News cameraman said some buildings have collapsed in Santiago, where power was out in parts of the city. An important church was among the buildings that came down in the central city of Providencia, where window glass shattered into the streets and people ran from multistory buildings, according to TV Chile.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a warning for Chile and Peru, and a less-urgent tsunami watch for Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica and Antarctica. It said a tsunami could also hit Hawaii later in the day.

"Sea level readings indicate a tsunami was generated. It may have been destructive along coasts near the earthquake epicenter and could also be a threat to more distant coasts," the center said.

The U.S. west coast tsunami warning center said it did not expect a tsunami along the west of the U.S. or Canada but was continuing to monitor the situation.

The largest earthquake ever recorded struck the same area of Chile on May 22, 1960. The magnitude-9.5 quake killed 1,655 people and left 2 million homeless. The tsunami that it caused killed people in Hawaii, Japan and the Philippines and caused damage to the West Coast of the United States.

Who inspired Manu? The answer begins in Bahia Blanca by Ken Rodriguez

Steve Smith, the former Spur, recently counted down his Top 10 plays of the season (so far) below the rim. Only one player makes two appearances in the NBA TV video. It's not LeBron. It's not Kobe. It's Manu Ginobili.

In a sequence against New Orleans, Ginobili drives to his right, away from the basket. Then he shakes Emeka Okafor with a wicked crossover, slices left, soars toward the rim, twists his body, raises his left arm and finishes with a reverse layup.

In a sequence against Minnesota, Ginobili chases an errant pass and catches it with one hand. Then, as he stumbles out of bounds, Manu flings the ball behind his back into the hands of DeJuan Blair for an assist, a play ESPN calls the best of the last 10 years.

That's Manu at his manic best – creating plays that prompt even some peers to ask: How'd he do that? A better question might be: From whom did he get those fearless, out-of-this-world moves, the kind that enable him to dunk on Yao and whirl past Kobe?

"All that stuff is just about watching games as a kid," says former teammate Bruce Bowen. "He's taken things he's seen and incorporated them on the floor."

It wouldn't be accurate to say Ginobili was born with a ball in his hand. But he's been cradling one for as long as he can remember. It was once reported that Jorge Ginobili taught his son to dribble between chairs when the kid was 2-years-old. Manu says that's not true.

"I was three," he says. "And it was my coach – not my father – who taught me."

No, Manu didn't have a personal trainer in pre-school. But in Bahia Blanca, Argentina, he had a father who'd been a point guard and ran a basketball club, Bahiense del Norte. He had two older brothers – Sebastian and Leandro – who were budding stars. And he had a house full of coaches who often stopped by to eat, hang out and talk hoops with the family.

One coach, Oscar Sanchez, taught 3-year-old Manu to dribble with his head up and his free arm bent at the elbow to protect the ball. "He made me dribble balls around the house," Manu says. "He coached me in the kitchen."

Another coach never trained Leandro and Sebastian without bringing an extra ball for their baby brother. "My brothers were five and seven years older than me," Manu says. "I wanted to be like them. Every time they were on the court, I was following them around or keeping their stats."

As a boy in soccer mad Argentina, Manu studied the basketball moves of Sebastian, an exceptional passer, and Leandro, a lights-out shooter. Manu also studied Juan Alberto Espil, an off guard who led Argentina to the gold medal at the 1995 Pan American Games.

"I used to watch him play in Bahia Blanca," Manu recalls. "He was a pure shooter. But he also played well without the ball."

Young Manu became a fine student of the game. But no one considered him an elite prospect. At 15, he failed to make the local All-Star team. Though he loved to attack the rim, Manu was too small to get noticed. But then he began to grow. By the time he sprouted to 6-foot-6 and turned pro, his drives had become ferocious, unpredictable, artistic. Fans thundered their approval. His mother, Raquel, looked away.

"She'd say, 'Don't dunk. Stay out of the paint. Why don't you just shoot threes,'" Manu says. "She was afraid I'd get hit by one of the big fellas."

Manu kept driving and joined a team with his middle brother. "When we played together," Sebastian says, "I realized that he was different, that he could do things on the court physically, with and without the ball."

Later, Manu found inspiration in Italy. He incorporated moves from Sasha Danilovic. Other moves Manu simply made up. That wrap-the-ball-around-the-waist trick he likes to spring in the paint -- Manu didn't get it from his brothers or anyone in Europe. He got it out of necessity. "People were slapping at the ball," he says. "And I had to protect it as I took it to the rim."

Back in Bahia Blanca, Raquel Ginobili still can't bear to watch. When Manu's on TV, she'll read a book or disappear into another room. If Manu's not diving headlong for a ball into a row of cameras, he's throwing his body into a thicket of elbows and knees. They don't call him El Contusion for nothing. "To this day," Manu says, "she can't handle it."

At 32, Manu remains a SportsCenter staple, a diving, driving, dunking wonder who creates magic on the fly. Some of it comes from the family tree in Bahia Blanca. Some comes from nowhere in mid-air.

Once, all Sebastian could see was a pesky, little tag-along brother. Today, he sees an artist who moves with on-the-spot, spontaneity, like riffs of improvisational jazz.

Artist and activist Shakira met with President Obama and Vice President Biden at the White House

February 22, 2010—Artist and activist Shakira met with President Obama and Vice President Biden at the White House today to discuss their shared interest in early childhood development and universal education.

“It was such a privilege to sit down with the President in the Oval Office to discuss our shared commitment to education and early childhood development. We agreed that investing in our children is the smartest strategy governments can use to boost economic growth, fight poverty, and promote global security and peace,” said Shakira. “We will be working closely with the President and his staff to implement his vision—for Latinos, children in the United States, and around the world."

“I briefed the President on the progress made this year through ALAS with the heads of state of Latin American governments, and explained that we have made early childhood development a central topic of discussion during the next Ibero-American Summit to take place in Argentina later this year.”

Shakira and President Obama first met at his inaugural ceremonies last January.

Before the meeting with President Obama, Shakira met with members of his staff where she inquired about the status of government policies to legalize 11 million undocumented immigrants who live in the United States. White House officials told Shakira that they are working hard to find a solution, and said they hope to reach an agreement this year with the Republican Party to legalize the undocumented immigrants.

Shakira also met with a group of the President’s advisors on education, national security, and social innovation. Members of both Obama’s and Shakira’s teams agreed to convene again next week to advance specific ideas to develop early childhood development programs among the Hispanic community in the United States.

The Colombian artist is a leading activist for children and the founder of ALAS, a coalition of Latin American artists and business leaders advocating for comprehensive ECD programs. She’s on her way to the World Bank to announce a groundbreaking $300 million initiative with World Bank President Robert Zoellick aimed at expanding development programs for young children in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Early Childhood Development (ECD) programs provide children with adequate nutrition, healthcare, and stimulating environments from the moment of conception through age 6—a period of development crucial for achieving a child’s full potential. The initiative will help expand ECD programs in a region where 9 million children under 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition and 22 million lack access to early basic care.

Defense is the key of success By Leandro Ginobili

Defense is the key of success By Leandro Ginobili

An old Basketball axiom says that the offensive wins the games and the defensive the championships. I don’t know the wise who said this, but he was so right. Everytime gets more the gravitation on this aspect of the game and seems to be the unbalanced factor for reaching out the final instances .

I had the opportunity to present some games on the Final Four of Americas ( a very good idea for intending to join the continent on basketball side) which in its third edition was performed in Mar del Plata city (Argentina), crowning to the local team Peñarol as the king of the continent for second time .

For being in the ground, even more in a higher position, one could watch more clearly the different aspects of the game: defensive tactics, offensive coordinations, indications of the coachs , individual persecutions and all the nuances of a sport very rich in variants.

Beyond , the quality of the players, one could make a clear paralelism with the European Basketball, Players very well prepared on the physical aspect a great defensive vocation, having in clear that without it is practically impossible to get any big goal.

And Peñarol, the champion, was a clear example about this. With a strong team and not with many offensive variables , it made worth its power in the other side of the court, It received an average of 74 points in 3 games, with a supplementary included.

Before , here , in our places it was impossible to see. The argentine players bet everything to the offensive, adding that they didn’t work out their bodies as they do now, with some exceptions, that they have been helped by the nature mother and not by their conscious work out in the gym.

The globalization caused by the communications media development, has joined the distances, Now it is easier to see and know how the first world is training , coachs, trainers ,can be reached out by a click with the best information , and the possibility to travel and participate in the campus during the summer on the North hemisphere,

The majority of the basketball world ,has understood this, Also the NBA was changing, leaving aside the classic showtime for a game more like the FIBA style, with impressive defenses, who had created true dynasties within the competence : the Celtics of 80s , Pistons and Buls of 90s and Spurs in the new century ,

All the teams than more their offensive skills , have reached to make history from a solid defensive, that was the reason that get the top . What we can say about the times that are running, with the Celtics of 2008 (the best defense of the last decade, in my opinion) Lakers 2009 and the Cavs from nowdays , real masters when they haven’t the ball in their power,

The possession of the 10 best defenses of NBA are teams that are in positions to obtain the place in the post season, All is not a casuallity

If we cross the ocean , this tendency has a deepest meaning in the teams that has been dominating the European competetion , in the last decade were and are true strenghs , In general , is very difficult to find games that will score more than 100 points. Teams the size of CSKA, Barcelona,Kinder Bologna, Macabi Tel Aviv, Olimpyakos and Panathinaikos were a sample of this

Some other wise said that for being a good attacker it requires talent, good hands and a good night , but for defending well , only attitude, a good pair of legs, that don’t depend on the skills or if the player woke up good or bad in the morning of the game . There are no excuses for not doing well and seems that the world is understanding it .

Positive sign? 'Credit crisis' hedge funds close up shop

By Hilary Potkewitz

Positive sign? 'Credit crisis' hedge funds close up shop

Distressed debt funds that started in wake of credit collapse saw fat returns in mere months. Now they're closing while the going's good, years earlier than planned.

Did you hear? The credit crisis is officially over—at least according to the handful of hedge fund managers who have shut down their “credit crisis funds” over the past few weeks.

Manhattan-based BlueMountain Capital Management abruptly liquidated its distressed debt fund in early February, after just 11 months of operation, returning the money to investors. The $100 million fund was launched last spring to take advantage of the liquidity crisis by snapping up cheap debt that investment firms were unloading for cents on the dollar.

By January, the fund had gained 34%. BlueMountain co-founder Stephen Siderow decided to quit while he was ahead. It was initially marketed as a two-year fund.

“Most of the opportunity is behind us,” said Mr. Siderow, whose firm manages about $4 billion. “I just don't see a whole lot of upside. There will still be opportunities, but nothing like what we just had.”

Also moving on is Highland Capital, a $25 billion Dallas-based money manager, which just liquidated its distressed debt fund four years earlier than planned. The fund launched in November 2008, investing in collateralized debt obligations, the toxic securities largely credited for causing the financial crisis, and surprised its managers with gains of 138% by the beginning of this year. Highland managers decided to fold the fund, rather than push their luck.

Similarly, hedge fund firm Silverback chose to liquidate its aptly named Opportunistic Convertible Fund after just 10 months in the game. Chapel Hill, N.C.-based Silverback focused on what the investment industry calls convertible arbitrage, buying distressed convertible bonds and capitalizing on the spread between the depressed price of a company's bonds and its stock price. Good call: The $500-million fund boasted gains of 121% when Silverback pulled the plug in December.

Most of these firms' investors simply reinvested with the same fund family, taking managers' advice to direct their money to other strategies. “It's time to move on,” declared Mr. Siderow.

But not everyone is willing to leave the post-crisis-market for dead. Marc Lasry, managing director of Avenue Capital Group, is said to be launching a brand-new distressed debt fund—and more than likely will be buying up some of the cast-offs from liquidating funds.

The Manhattan-based money manager, with $18.5 billion in assets, intends to raise $3 billion for its latest effort over the next three months, according to reports. That's an ambitious goal: of the 750 or so hedge funds that launched last year, only two had assets of more than $1 billion.

Avenue Capital's spokesman declined to comment.

The Obama Method And the Health Care Summit

I still find it strange how little understood President Obama's political method is. The first person I know who identified it is Mark Schmitt, over two years ago. At the time, many liberals viewed Obama's inclusive rhetoric as a sign that he intended to capitulate the liberal agenda for the sake of winning Republican agreement. Schmitt disagreed. Obama's language is highly conciliatory, he wrote, but the method isn't:

One way to deal with that kind of bad-faith opposition is to draw the person in, treat them as if they were operating in good faith, and draw them into a conversation about how they actually would solve the problem. If they have nothing, it shows. And that's not a tactic of bipartisan Washington idealists -- it's a hard-nosed tactic of community organizers, who are acutely aware of power and conflict. It's how you deal with people with intractable demands -- put ‘em on a committee.

Last year I wrote a column making a similar point. Obama uses a similar approach toward Republicans as foreign enemies like the Iranian regime: take them up on their claim to some shared goal (nuclear disarmament, health care reform), elide their preferred red herrings, engage them seriously, and then expose their disingenuousness:

This apparent paradox is one reason Obama's political identity has eluded easy definition. On the one hand, you have a disciple of the radical community organizer Saul Alinsky turned ruthless Chicago politician. On the other hand, there is the conciliatory post-partisan idealist. The mistake here is in thinking of these two notions as opposing poles. In reality it's all the same thing. Obama's defining political trait is the belief that conciliatory rhetoric is a ruthless strategy.

Obama health care summit is a classic example of the Obama method. Once again, skeptics are viewing it as a plot that depends on securing Republican cooperation. Here, for example, is the New York Times analysis:

One big question about President Obama’s bipartisan health care summit, scheduled for Feb. 25, is whether American voters will really get a full and open competition of ideas and emerge with a clearer sense of whether they support or oppose the various proposals put forward by Republicans and Democrats.

Skeptics around Washington are already warning that the summit will be nothing more than Kabuki theater, allowing each side to grandstand on television while providing little in the way of substantive debate or additional understanding for the folks watching back home.

That's not the point. Obama knows perfectly well that the Republicans have no serious proposals to address the main problems of the health care system and have no interest (or political room, given their crazy base) in handing him a victory of any substance. Obama is bringing them in to discuss health care so he can expose this reality.

I'm not saying this is some kind of genius maneuver. I'm not even saying it will work. (I wouldn't bet against it, though.) I'm just saying that this -- not starting over, and not pleading for bipartisan cover -- is what Obama is trying to accomplish.

El secreto in their eyes... nominated for Oscars Campanella’s film noir hit to vie for the Best Foreign Language Picture award

The news came as no surprise to the nearly 2.5 million viewers of Juan José Campanella film noir hit El secreto de sus ojos (The Secret In Their Eyes / The Secret of Her Eyes), but it was certainly good news for the thriving Argentine movie industry.

Directed by Juan José Campanella — whose previous directorial efforts received mixed to good reviews but were in general derided by the local intelligentsia for their overt sentimentalism — The Secret In Their Eyes, based on Eduardo Sacheri’s novel El secreto de sus ojos, veered off Campanella’s trademark predictability to tell the disturbing story of an unsolved murder-rape case which haunts a court clerk, Benjamín Espósito (Ricardo Darín).

Obsessed with the cold case, Espósito decides to spend his early retirement days writing a fictionalized account of the brutal crime.

Thirty years after the case was filed away, Espósito dusts off the archives with the help of a former fellow worker (Guillermo Francella) and judge Irene Hastings.

The Secret of Campanella’s thriller lies, perhaps, in that the director chose to follow one main narrative line while leaving long-concealed feelings, longings and deceptions in the background. Also in the background, but more prominent in the case, is the impunity with which the armed forces operated during the 1976-1983 military dictatorship.

The Secret In Their Eyes is Campanella’s second Oscar nomination, after Son of the Bride (2001). The Secret... is Argentina’s sixth effort to claim the coveted statuette, which it won on only one ocassion, with Luis Puenzo’s 1985 The Official Story, in which the issue of the children of the disappeared was closer in time and more painful to the people of Argentina.

The Secret...’s Oscar nomination comes hot on the heels of the Goya Awards, the Spanish Academy’s film prizes, which Campanella’s film swept off. The Goya Prizes are set to be presented next February 14.

Speaking on Radio del Plata, actress Soledad Villamil, who plays judge Hasting, said yesterday’s announcement made her very happy, and that she was still trying to take in the news. “The nomination itself is very important for Argentine cinema, for it will help it get the kind of reception it deserves.”

For his part, actor Guillermo Francella — regularly typecast as a buffoon — was given the chance to turn in a surprisingly good performance as an obscure court clerk who drowns his miserable life into alcohol.

The Secret... is Argentina’s sixth movie to vie for the Best Foreign Language Picture, the others being La Tregua (1974), by Sergio Renán; Camila (1984), by María Luisa Bemberg; La historia oficial (1985), by Luis Puenzo; Tango (1998), by Spanish director Carlos Saura; and El hijo de la novia (2001), also directed by Campanella.

Speaking on Radio 10, Francella said that, “There was a great deal of expectation, for we know The Secret... is a great movie, but it came as a shock when the nominations were announced. I was told the film is doing very well abroad, especially in Spain.

“You never know what may come your way, there was this wonderful script (developed by Campanella and novelist Sacheri), and the fact that Campanella is an accomplished director.

“Of course, I would love to attend the ceremony, but there’s a whole bunch of us, I have no idea how the Academy handles these affairs.”

In statements to TN television news channel, Sacheri affirmed that The Secret... has received due recognition because Campanella made a bold move and stepped on uncharted territory for him. The Secret... is darker in tone and more tragic than his previous productions.”

In September last year, shortly after its release, The Secret... was picked by the Argentine Academy as the country’s entry for the Oscars, taking 57 out of 85 votes.

Competing in the Best Foreign Language Picture will be Peru’s La teta asustada (critically acclaimed here but otherwise ignored by audiences), by Claudia Llosa; Israel’s Ajami, by Scandar Copti and Yaron Shani; France’s Un Prophet, by Jacques Audiard; and Germany’s The White Ribbon.
