Home will be a peaceful haven from the pressures of public life. Turn your attention to domestic pursuits. Cooking, cleaning and doing minor repairs will give you a welcome sense of stability.

The sooner they learn how to fix their own problems, the happier everyone will be. Money is tight, so don't make any big buys now.

U.S. cable group Liberty Global (NSQ:LBTYA) is in takeover talks with Dutch operator Ziggo (ZIGGO.AS), its latest move to consolidate the sector in Europe with a deal analysts say could cost around 5 billion euros ($6.9 billion). Ziggo, which rejected an approach from the company controlled by U.S. tycoon John Malone in October as too low, on Thursday said no decision has yet been made about a full takeover offer. Liberty, which makes more than 90 percent of its revenue in Europe, has been driving consolidation of the fragmented market there seeking to profit from rising and largely recession-proof demand for faster Internet and digital television. The U.S. company has built its leading position in a broad stretch of Europe from Ireland to Romania via acquisitions over the past decade, and already owns 28.5 percent of Ziggo.

Slovenia's banks need 4.8 billion euros ($6.6 billion) to plug the holes in their balance sheets, the central bank said on Wednesday, a sum the country can probably scrape together without having to ask its euro zone peers for a bailout. Banks in Slovenia are saddled with an estimated 7.9 billion euros in bad loans - equivalent to a fifth of national output - after the global economic slowdown exposed their poor lending practices and tangled ownership structure. At stake in Slovenia is whether the euro zone as a whole can say with confidence it is emerging from the convulsions of the past five years, or whether it still risks slipping back into the kind of crises that hit Greece, Ireland and Cyprus. Unveiling the results of an external assessment of how much of the banks' lending has gone sour, central bank governor Bostjan Jazbec said the three biggest Slovenian banks needed 3 billion euros in re-capitalisation.

Royal Bank of Scotland's Irish unit said its customers were experiencing difficulties with money transfers and online banking on Thursday, the latest in a series of technical problems to hit the group. Ulster Bank told customers on its Twitter feed @UlsterBank_Help that it was aware of the problems and that customers would be compensated for any losses. The problems come a week after a failure in RBS's online and debit card payments system prevented millions of customers across the United Kingdom from withdrawing cash, paying for goods or using telephone and online banking services. RBS, which is 82 percent owned by the UK government, was investigated by the Financial Conduct Authority in April when a failure in its technical systems left customers unable to use the bank's card and online services.
