I have no idea as I have

been to the West but looks like the shopping spree is on for the economy

showing WE HAVE A PROBLEM. DOUBT THIS NOT Luxembourg Ambassador to India Gaston today invited the industry

of northern region to invest in the European

country to cement the bialteral trade between the two nations. The Ambassador was here to

explore business opportunities between India and Luxembourg at an interactive

session organised by PHD Chamber. He said in his address that a slew of

business opportunities exist between India and Luxembourg in the financial and

infrastructural sectors. "Luxembourg being one of the world's leading

nations in terms of accumulation of capital and globally ranked second in

financial investments is a prospective investment destination for Indian

stakeholders," he said. Stronck said almost 150 Indian companies are

listed on the stock exchange of Luxembourg. Luxembourg, in spite of its

"tiny size" and a very small population of less than five million,

has become an economic powerhouse of Europe with one of the highest GDP rates

and financial growth, he added. Claiming that his country, situated

between Germany and Belgium in central Europe, is one of the largest financial

hubs of the world, the Luxembourg ambassador said that his country had become

the single largest hub for 'Investment Fund' with a total corpus of over euros

2200 billion. He said logistics and Information and Communication

Technology (ICT) are other potential sectors for investment as Luxembourg has

the biggest ICT industry in EU, said Stronck. With the proximity to the

vast Western European market, a stable government, the presence of a sound technology and

infrastructural base and a strong financial regulatory body are some factors

which have spurred the country to be a frontrunner in the finance and

industrial sectors, he said. I thank you Firozali A.Mulla DBA Don't

By definition, a rape incorporates an unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse. As such, there cannot be legitimate rape unless its meaning has been willfully altered. 

Moreover, marriage does not necessarily legalize intercourse without consent.    (vzc1943)

The one with the Taliban cheering on Akin made me laugh.  The I realized it was funny because its true and that made me cry a little inside.
