BRUSSELS Shilique Calhoun Jersey , Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- Eurogroup head Jeroen Dijsselbloem said on late Wednesday they didn't make enough progress in talks with Greek finance minister on the Greek debt crisis during the eurogroup meeting and talks will be continued next Monday.

"We did made progress but not enough to issue joint statement, we reached no joint conclusions, that's why there was no statement. It wasn't about wording, it was about not agreeing, " Dijsselbloem told reporters in a press conference.

"We did not go into detailed proposals or on details of any program, no common ground achieved," he said.

"We simply tried to work on next steps over next couple of days Johnny Townsend Jersey , but failed to agree, we will continue our talks on Monday and move on from there," he added.

Being the first time to attend Europgoup meeting, Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis told reporters after the press conference that he has many different opinions with his EU peers and hoping to continue the talks and there would be a conclusion next Monday.

HAVANA, Sept. 24 (Xinhua) -- Nayvis Diaz does not regret selling her Peugeot car to finance the opening of her bicycle repair and rental shop in Havana, three years ago.

Now, seven women work in VeloCuba Nick Nelson Jersey , which Diaz opened after leaving her job at the Ministry of Foreign Trade to take advantage of Cuba's economic reforms.

VeloCuba's beginnings in September 2014 were not easy but its owner did not give up and took charge of everything: the workshop, accounting, even distributing advertising flyers.

"I did it absolutely all. One of our employees used to be a professional cyclist and she brought all the technical knowledge on fixing a bike," she told Xinhua.

Accompanied by Dayli Carvo, a former national cycling team member, Diaz has helped cycling stand out in Havana.

As advertising opportunities are extremely limited in Cuba, Diaz's clientele was built up through word of mouth Arden Key Jersey , including the fact that only women are employed in the workshop.

"The objective is to empower women in different activities they seemingly cannot do," explained Diaz.

VeloCuba saw rapid success and, after a year, it expanded to offer rentals, road repairs, servicing at home and offering five bicycle tours through the capital. Guides on these tours can offer them in Spanish, English Brandon Parker Jersey , German and French.

"We place great emphasis on knowing historical matters. We are very keen for our visitors to discover architecture, art, new places they can go at night, and learn about Cuban society," said Diaz.

Now, VeloCuba has two workshops, one in the central neighborhood of Vedado and another in Old Havana Mario Edwards Jr Jersey , among the city's busiest districts.

The lack of a large-scale market for bicycles is the main problem of VeloCuba, which has had to buy bicycles from foreign tourists visiting the island.

However, as a service to the community, the workshops repair and maintain wheelchairs for free.

"It is our way, as a company, to offer some help to society," said Diaz.

VeloCuba has a coordinated partnership with Cuba's sports authorities to establish activities for children Karl Joseph Jersey , including cycling.

"I dream that, on one or two days a week, only cycling is allowed in the city," Diaz said with a smile.

The media spotlight the past few days has been on Eliot Spitzer, the Governor of New York David Sharpe Jersey , and his link to the Emperor's Club VIP prostitution ring. Whether his damaging behavior is related to an inflated sense of entitlement, the dark side of his self righteous attitude, a feeling that he's above the law, or high testosterone, seeing the anguished look on Silda Spitzer's face and knowing that he has 3 teenage daughters makes you wonder.

It now clearly looks as if crime buster Spitzer has fallen on his own sword. And buying high-priced sexual services has created a heartbreaking tragedy for his family. Although he raised the ethical bar in New York, he forgot to hold himself to this higher standard. By ignoring what may be the consequences of his acts, and the people he would hurt Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey , he raises questions about his basic character as well as his moral development. Now that he has officially resigned, he has a very big job ahead - looking deep inside himself.

This scene - personal pain on display for all to see - has played out many times before in the political arena. There's a variety of ways to look at what motivates the betrayed wife, disgraced and humiliated, standing by her man. It could be a psychological defense mechanism, manifested as denial, shock or an out-of-body fugue state. Perhaps it's a combination of what she always does, a function of her identity derived from her husband's status or an effort in support of her own aspirations. It may even be plain love Obi Melifonwu Jersey , a long history together, concern for the children and a desire to keep the family together. Whatever the case, it takes a lot of courage and the road to healing the wounds is long and hard.

The potential outcome of espousing a rigid morality and then living a life of reckless abandon is unpredictable, but it certainly can destabilize relationships and ruin lives. Spitzer is an extreme example of the disruption of equilibrium that can occur in long-term marriages.

As Sandwiched Boomers, your relationship issues may not be as dramatic, but classic - an empty nest.
