Ace News Team: Dec.31: Says after a turbulent year marred by terror woes, Ebola outbreaks and a horrific series of airline disasters, many could be forgiven for saying good riddance to 2014 and gratefully ringing in a new year.
Across the globe, revellers looking for a respite from the gloom converged on the beaches of Brazil, the shores of Sydney harbour and New York’s Times Square to welcome 2015.
I have just updated news room with all our sites and changes made over last 12 months. This is where on the cutting room floor, our news and views about the news will be made.
‘ Ace News Services ‘
As anyone who knows me – l have slowly built a group of sites all listed below with links to view, that represent as broad range of topics as possible.
This site, blog or room as it will be known is simply my news, views and feelings and thoughts as an editor.
I have also spoken to a number of my friends and followers and asked if they would like to join the news team, either regularly or as featured writers. I feel honoured by their response to wanting to be part.
Some and l say some are amazing writers, and some are able to make words jump off the page and say read me. These writers do not consider themselves great in their own right. They are humble and write from their heart their feelings, thoughts and musings about the world.
So today this day l open the news room to the world and say welcome to my friends and writers and of course you all who one day hopefully enjoy reading our words as much as we enjoyed writing them.
With kindest best wishes and love to you all and thank you for following my news.
#AceBreakingNews – RUSSIA:Dec.10 – In a couple of years Russia will be able to substitute 100 percent of “unnecessary” food imports, Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said during his live TV interview Wednesday.
“We are able to fully replace needless imports in the mid-term,” said Medvedev.
Medvedev said the shift won’t be immediate, but the good thing is that shelves in the stores throughout Russia have already become full of domestically made produce.
“We are serious people and we’ve never said that we’d get all Russian agricultural items the next day after introducing response measures [to Western sanctions – Ed.],” he said adding that the goal of filling shelves with domestic production is gradually being achieved.
His comment comes at a time when the Russian economy is struggling to withstand oil prices that have plunged more than 40 percent from a peak of $115 per barrel in the summer.
The Russian currency has gone into free fall, touching new lows every day. The ruble was trading at 54.3 against the US dollar and at 67.3 against the euro at 1200 MSK Wednesday on the Moscow Exchange.
