Brazil sells 50 million USD bonds in Asian markets

RIO DE JANEIRO,- Brazil succeeded in selling 50 million U.S. dollars worth of dollar-denominated government bonds in Asian markets on Friday, the Treasury Department announced.

The bonds sold are due on Jan. 5, 2023, with a yield of 2.75 percent a year. The selling came one day after the Brazilian government sold 750-million-dollar bonds due in January 2023 in European and U.S. markets.

It was the first issuance of global bonds of a total of 800 million dollars in foreign currency since September 2012 when Brazil sold 1.35-billion-dollar bonds (100 million dollars in Asian markets and 1.25 billion in European and U.S. markets).

The Brazilian government also announced its intention to make another issuance in December.

Issuances of bonds allow the government to borrow from foreign investors by promising to return the investment together with a certain yield within a predetermined time range.

Brazil's sovereign credit ratings in international agencies have improved in the past years.

The country's bonds in foreign currency are currently rated Baa2 at Moody's and BBB at Fitch Ratings and Standard & Poor's Ratings.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
