This post Greece Is the Canary in the Coal Mine appeared first on Daily Reckoning.
This is an “Amber Alert” day in the markets. “Greeks Line Up at Banks; ATMs Run Dry” was the headline over at the Drudge Report. Versions of it ran throughout the financial media. Greece is the canary in the coal mine for what could one day happen to your savings. You’ll recall our prediction: In a crisis, banks will move fast to block access to your money. First, they will limit withdrawals. Then they will either close their doors or run out of cash.
You’ll recall our prediction: In a crisis, banks will move fast to block access to your money.
First, they will limit withdrawals. Then they will either close their doors or run out of cash.
That’s what’s happening in Greece right now…
The showdown going on there for months is reaching a climax.
The Greek government has announced it will put creditor demands to a popular vote.
"Hey, how do you feel about paying our national debt?” they’re going to ask the hoi polloi.
And how do you think the hoi polloi are going to respond?
The best guess is they’re going to say: Let’s not.
Which will leave the banks cut off from new funds… and short of old ones.
Smart depositors figured this out long ago. They took their money out of Greek banks. But the rest of the people are now wising up. In effect, they’re voting with their money – getting it out while they still can.
Naturally, the banks tried to protect the money that isn’t theirs. Piraeus Bank and Alpha Bank limited the amount you could take out. All you could get from a Piraeus ATM, for example, was €600 ($667).
This made people more eager than ever to get their hands on their money. Lines formed at ATMs on Saturday. One banker estimated that €110 million ($122 million) left the banks by 11:30 a.m.
Not all banks are open on Saturday. But even those that were normally open stayed shut.

vhsunsun A #NorthKorea #shop at #ExpoMilano2015 #Milan #Italy A rare and unexpected first-hand glimpse into North Korea. It's a small shop in an area of the Expo not frequented by many visitors. Most people probably don't even know that this hermit kingdom takes part in the event. The theme for this year's Expo is food, and the only food products sold there are ginseng. Female shop assistants all wore the traditional Korean costume, while all workers had a badge on the left side of their chest showing the national flag with the faces of Kim Jong Il and Kim Il Sung on it. 5h

northkorea_dprk_today Pride of national clothes producers

Koreans like to wear national clothes, traditional costumes of Korea.
The Jongro Korean Clothes Tailor's Shop under the Central District General Tailor's Shop in the capital city Pyongyang is producing national costumes, Korean Chima and Jogori.
Tailor's cutter Han Pun Ok has this to say:
"The Korean clothes are excellent national costumes representing mild natural and climatic conditions of the country, constitution of Koreans, sentiments of Koreans who like bright and elegant things and the like. We are making efforts to positively preserve national traditions while developing the Korean clothes consistently to meet the modern aesthetic demands."
A lot of women come to this shop to have their Korean Chima and Jogori tailored. The Korean Clothes Tailor's Shop has majored in tailoring Korean Chima and Jogori for more than ten years.
The employees of the shop deepened their thinking to ensure diversity of the types, colours, decorations, patterns and qualities of materials, main elements of the clothes, while preserving national characteristics.
They often organized shows to create excellent designs and invented and introduced new tailoring methods and thus made clothes with rich formative value and becoming to the figures of customers. Besides, they watched women wearing Chima and Jogori with professional interest and considered their merits and demerits in tailoring.
The Korean Chima and Jogori tailored by them are characterized by unique combination of colours and flower decoration which give simple yet bright and vivid feelings, skilled cutting and perfect processing technique, elegant national colours and modern aesthetic sense. Their products won several times at the national Korean clothes shows.

koreanwarshowcase Great footage of an American fighter (possibly a Sabre) taking out Soviet MiG-15 jets somewhere over the Korean Peninsula in 1953. The Soviet MiG-15 and American F-86 were regarded as the two best fighter aircraft of the Korean War. The MiG-15 is even considered one of the greatest fighter aircraft of all time. 8h
