    Athens Olympics leave mixed legacy, 10 years later

    In this Friday, Aug. 8, 2014 photo, the abandoned beach volleyball Olympic venue is seen in Neo Faliro, southern Athens. As Greece groans under a cruel depression, forecast to end this year, the 10-year anniversary once again raises the question of whether the Athens Games were too costly an undertaking for a weak economy. (AP Photo/Thanassis Stavrakis)ATHENS, Greece (AP) — In an obscure corner of a park sits a forlorn reminder that, 10 years ago, Athens hosted the 2004 Summer Olympics. The crumbling miniature theater is inscribed with the words "glory, wealth, wisdom, victory, triumph, hero, labor" — and it is where visiting Olympic officials planted an olive sapling that would bear their names for posterity.

    Eurozone economy still in timid recovery: survey

    The latest eurozone data is likely to strengthen the views of those who hold that the European Central Bank will eventually take extra measures to inject cash into the single-currency zoneThe latest data pushed down eurozone government borrowing costs, with traders more confident that the European Central Bank will take extra measures to inject cash into the single-currency zone. "The eurozone economy continued to make steady progress in August, as the region looks to bounce back following the recent weaker-than-expected GDP (gross domestic product) readings," said Rob Dobson, senior economist at the private Markit research group that published the data. Markit's set of leading indicators -- the purchasing managers' index (PMI) -- turned in a figure of 52.8, above the 50 points that signal expansion but lower than a revised figure of 53.8 in July. This followed last week's official data that showed the eurozone ground to a halt in the second quarter, with none of the bloc's three biggest economies -- Germany, France and Italy -- registering growth.




    S&P says will not follow South African bank downgrade by Moody's

    New South African bank notes featuring an image of former South African President Nelson Mandela are displayed at an office in JohannesburgBy Joe Brock JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Ratings agency Standard & Poor's said on Thursday it had no plans to downgrade South African banks, easing concerns a cut by Moody's on the country's four biggest lenders this week could have a knock-on ratings impact. Moody's on Tuesday downgraded deposit ratings for Standard Bank, FirstRand, Nedbank and Absa Bank -- Barclays Africa Group's local operation. The move, which was criticised by South Africa's central bank and some analysts, was the latest blow to Africa's most developed economy and sent banking shares lower. Some economists said the decision by Moody's could lead to further downgrades but S&P, which cut South Africa's sovereign credit rating in June, said it had no plans to follow suit.

    Weather system east of Caribbean could turn into tropical storm
    (Reuters) - An area of low pressure located east of the Caribbean Sea has a 50 percent chance of becoming a tropical depression or storm in the next 48 hours, U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) meteorologist Dennis Feltgen said, referring to the weather system now about 350 miles (563 km) east of the Lesser Antilles islands. Arthur, a Category 2 storm, made landfall over North Carolina’s Outer Banks in early July. A tropical depression later that month did not develop into a storm.

    New delay for launch of Europe navigation satellites

    A Soyuz rocket carrying a pair of Galileo In-Orbit Validation satellites lifts off from Europe'’s Spaceport in Sinnamary, 12km from Kourou, French Guiana on October 12, 2012Bad weather delayed the liftoff Thursday of a rocket with two new satellites for Europe's rival to GPS, launch firm Arianespace said as it announced 12 orbiters will join the constellation from next year. The liftoff of the fifth and sixth Galileo satellites, already delayed by more than a year, had been scheduled for 1231 GMT from the European space centre at Kourou in French Guiana on a Russian-made Soyuz rocket on Thursday. "Another launch date will be decided depending on the evolution of the weather conditions in Kourou," it said. Arianespace also announced it had signed a deal with the European Space Agency (ESA) to launch 12 more satellites "from 2015 onwards", for the EU-funded Galileo network.
