    DOWN TO THE OCEANS
    New Tarajan gives birth to first deep oceanic exploration and touristic program

    While the world is trying not to explode following the continuous political crisis, New Tarajan is once again looking forward for new, exciting horizons for both scientific advancement and the development of one of the most powerful branches of its economy, tourism.
    And the most recent result in this continuous quest is astonishing: following a special meeting in Alleskandberg, gathering the most brilliant scientists in many fields and representatives of the International Investment Group and the government, Marquis Adrian Van Baltasar, the Deputy Prime Minister, and Baron Nasir Eddin Al Tusi, Minister of Education and Research, announced the official birth of the KADOEO (standing for Koninjlike Agentschap voor de Diepe Oceaan Exploratie en Ontwikkeling, or Royal Agency for Deep Oceanic Exploration and Development).
    The Agency will provide government funding, coordination and consultation to both institutional actions or private firms in the field of the exploration, exploitation and development of the deep oceanic seabed.
    "New Tarajan always had a significant interest in the development of resources from sea" said Marquis Van Baltasar: "But, until now, the exploration and exploitation of the deep seabed was left exclusively on the shoulders of few enterprising privates. Now, that situation is changed."
    The Tarajani government, indeed, through the Agency will "provide not only funding, but a fundamental coordination effort, and also the opportunity to better profit from the treasure which the oceans are."


    The concept design of the Siamak exploration submarine.

    The Agency already has very ambitious programs: first of all, an exploration one, which will have as its main goal to chart deep seabed, collecting mineral and other kinds of samples, and assessing the potential resources and scientific mysteries of the seabed with a precision never reached until now.
    Its spearhead will be a new exploration submarine, the Siamak (the name of the first sailor in Ajanic mythology): with a crew complement of thirty, extended laboratories and research facilities, the possibility to store a small group of smaller units and an autonomy of two months, the Siamak is the most advanced and spectacular submarine ever to be designed, and a demonstration of the capabilities recently acquired and developed by Tarajani shipyards.
    Following the first mission of the Siamak (which will take place in the Shraman Sea, where it will explore the Shraman Trench, one of the deepest and still unexplored oceanic trenches of the world), the Agency will also evaluate the opportunity to establish the first submarine colony in the history of mankind: the project, led by visionary biologist and adventurer Albert Samir Veraillè (an Ajan born in Arveyres, where he graduated), will enable the creationg of a group of submarine laboratories and facilities, with a total crew of fifteen inhabitants, on the deep oceanic seabed.
    Of course, these series of scientific researches will also have the goal to open the doors for private investments and the exploitation of the fantastic resources of the seabed (in terms of minerals, for example).


    But there's also another kind of exploitation of the oceanic deeps, particularly cared by New Tarajan: tourism.
    The Agency will indeed have a Touristic Department, with the goal to help coordinate the efforts of private firms of the sector developing the opportunities opened by the new explorations.
    And the sector is already preparing itself: in the Shraman Islands and in Meisjegronden, Ritz-Carlton, the famous luxury hotellerie brand of New Tarajan, is already constructing the first two submarine hotels of the world.
    First-class restaurants, elegant suites, theaters....everything you could desire in a hotel, with a special add: everything (or almost everything) is under the sea.


    Another, maybe even more ambitious project, are in work-in-progress phase: at the Royal Shipyards of Alleskanberg, engineers are working to the construction of the first cruise submarine of the world. An evolution of the submarine yacht Migaloo, this new model will allow up to twenty customers to enjoy a small journey under the seas while comfortably sitting on their sofa, or tasting one of the many wonderful meals of Tarajani cuisine, eventually with a cup of Red Horat Wine.
    Of course, many private firms already have expressed their interests also in designing an hotel in conjunction with the deep sea colony of the Agency. While design processes are under way, the final decision to create a true deep sea hotel will depen on the ultimate results of the scientific programs.

    With those new exciting opportunities laid open for New Tarajan, the KADOEO also has a great challenge to face: New Tarajan always had strict environmental regulations, and the oceans are no exception.
    Deputy Minister Van Baltasar put it clearly: "Our goal is also to protect our oceans, and the deep seabed, from uncontrolled exploitation and destruction."
    While helping investors to take profit, then, the Agency will also help the environment by putting strinct limits, and enforcing them.
    Thus, with the birth of KADOEO, New Tarajan is laying another milestone in the path of its "way to economic progress" (as once said by a famous economist): scientific advancement and discovery, economy investment and profit, and environmental protection, all three key factors, united in a single grand design.
    A design which allow us to discover and see more of the most unexplored and mysterious regions of the world.

    EUROPE LAUNCH NEW RESEARCH & TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION FRAMEWORK,"HORIZON 2020"
    Reorganization of the administrative structure and improvement of research infrastructures
    New operational programs and massive funding to develop new technologies in every sector,and make European economy sustainable,technologically advanced,developed and competitive
    The strategy that will bring Europe among the global leaders for scientific and technological development
    See the background here




    Horizon 2020 is the financial and tecnical instrument implementing the European Research & Industrial Innovation policy,aimed at securing and strengthening Europe's global competitiveness in technology and science. Horizon 2020 is fully integrated with the research and industrial innovation plans,programs and instruments,launched with the National Plan for Industrial Innovation,launched months ago (for more information see here

    Seen as a means to drive economic growth and create jobs, Horizon 2020 has the political backing of European Government and the majority of the Members of the European Parliament. They agreed that research is an investment in the future and so put it at the heart of the EU’s blueprint for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and jobs.

    By coupling research and innovation, with massive fundings (hundreds of billions of public funds),operational programs,infrastructural development for research and administrative reorganizations,Horizon 2020 is helping to achieve this with its emphasis on excellent science, industrial leadership and tackling societal challenges. The goal is to ensure Europe produces world-class science, removes barriers to innovation and makes it easier for the public and private sectors to work together in delivering innovation. Horizon 2020 is open to everyone,research institutions,public and private enterprises,public authorities, with a simple structure that reduces red tape and time so participants can focus on what is really important. This approach makes sure new projects get off the ground quickly – and achieve results faster.


    RESEARCH ISTITUTIONS REORGANIZATION




    The first action contained in the complex strategy is the complete reorganization of the administrative structure of research istitutions at national and local level,to ensure efficiency and effectiveness. The new structures created are then integrated and coordinated with existing structures, according to the National Plan for Industrial Innovation,launched months ago,see here. This is accompanied by a massive increase in government funding for research and technological innovation (which amounts to several hundred of billions),and tens of thousands of new hires among researchers and technicians (with permanent contracts),to increase the workforce overall.

    At the head of the entire research structure will be the European Research Council,as a public entity placed under the Ministry of Public Education,University and Research. The European Research Council supports frontier research,cross disciplinary proposals and pioneering ideas in new and emerging fields which introduce unconventional and innovative approaches. Other aims are carry out research in its own laboratories,by promoting innovation and competitiveness of the industrial system,and by providing technologies and solutions capable of responding to emerging needs, individual and collective. Promote the internationalization of the research system; provide consultancy to the Government and other institutions on strategic issues for the country and the community; contribute to the qualification of research human resources.

    The scientific network of the European Research Council is then structured,centrally,in seven Scientific Departments,with functions essentially of programmation,to which belong all the National Research Institutes,of each scientific and research branch,(such as the National Health Institutes and the Energy National Laboratories),that carry on the real scientific and research activity and own the various research infrastructures.

    At the national level,European Research Council is fully integrated with the already existing research administrations,in particular the Agency for Industrial Innovation,the National Agency for Research and the Body for Assistance and Financing of Innovative Activities (all placed under the Ministry of Economic Development).
    - National Agency for Research,aims to promote the development of theoretical and applied research,support innovation and cooperation between the public and private sectors, contributing also to the transfer of public research results to the industrial world.
    - Agency for Industrial Innovation,aims at supporting the industrial innovation and technological development,and strengthen public engagement in research.
    - Body for Assistance and Financing of Innovative Activities,aims to promote and support enterprises,in particular SMEs,to the growth and technological development.

    The European Research Council is also structurally integrated with the national inter-ministerial bodies for scientific consultation,or the HCST (Higher Council for Science and Technology),the ICSTR (Interministerial Committee for Scientific and Technological Research),and the IMRHE (Interministerial Mission for Research and Higher Education). The European Research Council and its work are continually evaluated by Agency for the Evaluation of Research and Higher Education,independent public authority,according to criteria of efficiency,rigor and transparency.

    At local level,European Research Council is structurally integrated and coordinated with the local administrations of research already existing,in particular the Regional Delegations for Research and Technologyplaced under the Ministry of Economic Development,one for each Region,and the Regional Directorates for Industry, Research and Environment,placed under the Regional Governments,one for each Region.


    RESEARCH INFRASTRUCTURES STRATEGY



    CERN in Geneva, largest and most advanced particle accelerator in the world,which will be updated with new technologies, thanks to the program Horizon 2020


    Research infrastructures (RIs) play an increasingly important role in the advancement of knowledge and technology. They are a key instrument in bringing together a wide diversity of stakeholders to look for solutions to many of the problems society is facing today. The term ‘research infrastructures’ refers to facilities, resources and related services used by the scientific community to conduct top-level research in their respective fields, ranging from social sciences to astronomy, genomics to nanotechnologies. Examples include singular large-scale research installations, collections, special habitats, libraries, databases, biological archives, clean rooms, integrated arrays of small research installations, high-capacity/high speed communication networks, highly distributed capacity and capability computing facilities and so on.

    New Horizon 2020 research infrastructures strategy guarantee European researchers access to the infrastructures they require to conduct their research – irrespective of the location of the infrastructure – and that the European approach to the development of new research infrastructures at the regional and transregional level, as well as the operation and enhancement of existing infrastructures, is massively supported.

    First of all,the strategy aims to reinforce,optimise,strengthen and modernize the network of research infrastructure that already exists,to ensure resources and tools adequate for operational programs. In addition,the strategy aims to massively develop and build a new network of research infrastructures nationwide,with the most advanced and innovative technologies today available,to increase in research capacity and performance,to respond to the latest research needs and societal challenges,for frontier top level research. Finally, all the research infrastructures will be integrated and coordinated at the local and national levels, through a global network and various networks for specific sectors, thus creating a completely digitized and integrated European Research Area.


    LEADERSHIP IN ENABLING & INDUSTRIAL TECHNOLOGIES STRATEGY




    Aiming at new and breakthrough technologies,this part of the Horizon 2020 programme will contribute to boosting competitiveness, creating jobs and supporting growth. The emphasis is on areas of research and innovation with a strong industrial dimension and where mastering new technological opportunities will enable and drive innovation.


    Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology


    The Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Technologies part of Horizon 2020 will support the development of technologies underpinning innovation across a range of sectors. Horizon 2020 will have a strong focus on developing European industrial capabilities in Key Enabling Technologies (KETs).

    This part of the programme covers different areas :

    Nanotechnologies Program:
    Nanotechnology’ is the new frontier of science and technology in Europe and around the world, working at the scale of individual molecules. Top scientists as well as policymakers worldwide praise the benefits it would bring to the entire society and economy: most of them insist on the key role research would play in the value-creation process to develop exploitable portfolios of technologies by the European industry leading to a choice of unique applications, products, markets and profitable revenue sources.

    The Horizon 2020 programme aims to bridge the gap between nanotechnology research and markets, and to realise the potential contribution to sustainable growth, competitiveness, environment, highly skilled jobs and increased quality of life. Horizon 2020 activities addressing this challenge will therefore implement the next steps towards the massive deployment and market introduction of lightweight, multifunctional, economical and environmentally friendly nano-enabled products for different applications, by scaling up laboratory experience to industrial scale and by demonstrating the viability of a variety of manufacturing technologies.
    Advanced Materials Program:
    How can the progress of humankind be measured? One way is to take a look at the extraordinary evolution of man-made materials, how these materials have been developed and used over time, their range and variety, and their quality and performance.

    Mastering the design, research and massive development of new and improved materials will remain key for achieving the goals of the European Innovation Policy, in agreement with the European global Strategy for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Research should respond to people's needs and concerns with integrated solutions that tie energy, natural resources and human health. Materials can enable industrial and commercial success for both existing and not-yet existing products and processes: they may introduce new functionalities and improved properties adding value to existing products and process, thus representing a real invisible revolution.
    Advanced Manufacturing and Processing Program:
    Despite growing globalisation and challenges from low-wage economies, manufacturing has a bright future in Europe in a sustainable, knowledge-based society. Europe will remain a strong manifacture and industrial power,among the global leaders,as part of the new sustainable economy – in technical, environmental and social terms. But it is clear that such sustainable development requires continuing innovation in the underpinning products and processes, with a need for consistent and effective research over the next decade based on a clear and long-term vision.

    European companies, particularly SMEs,with Horizon 2020 programs,instruments,massive funding and research,will quickly evolve and modernise their production processes. New engineering approaches exploiting nanotechnologies, flexible manufacturing, stimulating working environments, ambient intelligence and clean processingwill be massively fostered and developed. This requires more networking, increased flexibility, adapted structures, stronger links between research and innovation, increased added value in products, production and services, and decreased environmental impacts,and these will bring European industry to a new high. Research and innovation into production processes is therefore a key part of the Horizon 2020 programme.
    Biotechnology Program:
    With applications in a broad variety of sectors, life sciences and biotechnology are main innovation drivers in the United States of Europe, leading to new growth and competitiveness in traditional sectors, such as paper and pulp and chemical industries (including pharmaceutical the industry), textile companies and many others.

    Horizon 2020 aim in massive supporting biotechnology research in the area of Leadership in Enabling and Industrial Research is to exploit the current and future know-how for boosting technological innovation and industrial leadership. Horizon 2020 want European Industries to maintain their global leadership position for the benefit of European citizens. In pursuit of these goals,investment and research programs focus on mission-oriented research towards life sciences, biotechnology and biochemistry for sustainable non-food products and processes.
    Advanced Coal & Steel Industry Program:
    The Research and Invesment programs for advanced coal and steel industry provides funding for high quality massive research and funding projects which support the competitiveness of the European Coal and Steel industries. The programme covers core production processes; new products and applications, quality control, utilisation and conversion of resources, safety at work; environmental protection by reduction of emissions from coal use and steel production, and social issues.

    A world leader in the steel industry, notably in the design and production of high added-value grades of steel, the European steel industry is facing increasingly fierce competition from external producers. Advanced research is essential for European industry to remain competitive. As the world continues to rely on steel in the years to come in ever larger quantities, advanced sustainable and cleaner production techniques must clearly be developed and implemented. With Horizon 2020 strategy,Europe will lead worldwide in this domain.


    Public-Private Partnerships for Innovation & Development




    Horizon 2020 launched several contractual Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) of strategic importance for European industry.

    The partnerships will leverage hundred of billions of public investments with each euro of public funding expected to trigger additional private  investments to develop new technologies, products and services which will give European industry a leading position on world markets. These PPPs are based on roadmaps for research and innovation activities,in which are involved public research institution,public authorities,state-owned enterprises and private oned enterprises,including small and medium sized.

    Factory of the Future Program:
    Industrial production accounts for 16% of Europe’s GDP and is a key driver for innovation, productivity, growth and job creation. Manufacturing employs around 30 million persons and twice as many in support activities such as logistics. In addition, 80% of the EU’s exports are manufactured products. However, Europe’s position as an industrial power house is eroding and its leadership in many important sectors is being challenged by global competitors, leading to a decline in employment in recent years.

    The Factories of the Future Public-Private Partnership Program,under Horizon 2020 initiative aims at massively helping EU manufacturing enterprises,,with research & development programs and hundred of billions funding,in particular SMEs, to adapt to global competitive pressures by developing the necessary key enabling technologies across a broad range of sectors. It will help European industry to meet increasing global consumer demand for greener,more customised and higher quality products through the necessary transition to a demand-driven industry with less waste and a better use of resources.

    The Program will concentrate on increasing the technological basis of EU manufacturing through the development and integration of enabling technologies, such as innovative technologies for adaptable machines, ICT for manufacturing,and novel industrial handling of advanced materials. These research and innovation activities will strengthen Europe’s greatly industrial competitiveness,technological development and sustainability,ensuring European global leadership in industry.
    Sustainable Process Industry Program:
    The process industry is traditionally a very energy and resource intensive industrial domain. The European process industry currently suffers from a lack of competitiveness on the world stage since a significant part of raw materials is imported and energy in Europe is expensive. Sitting at the core of many European manufacturing value chains, the industrial sectors involved in Horizon 2020 Sustainable Process Industry Program are vital for the European economy and employment. The Program has the ambitious target of rejuvenating the process industry, making it more sustainable (doing more with less) and strongly competitive at the world level –to the benefit of Europe.

    The Sustainable Process Industry Program is a new public-private partnership (PPP) brought to life by the European Government together with eight sectors of the process industry: chemicals, cement,ceramics, minerals, steel, non-ferrous metals, industrial water and process engineering. The Program association proposes a clear vision for the future of the process industry in Europe, a long term commitment and ambitious targets. The Program massively supports,with research and development projects and hundred of billions funding,the development of novel technologies for improved resource and energy efficiency in the process industry, making it more sustainable and competitive at global level.

    The Program aims to provide significant benefits from an environmental, economic and social point of view. These will be achieved by reducing the energy consumption in the process industry by 90% and by reducing the utilisation of primary (non-renewable) raw materials by 85%, compared with current levels,with new innovative technologies. Moreover, the benefits expected from this initiative go far beyond only environmental aspects. The ambitious targets set by the Program will massively support a shift to a sustainable and growing European economy,will contribute to the creation of hundreds of thousands of new jobs,and will make European process industry a global leader in short time.
    Energy-efficient Buildings Program:
    The construction sector is crucial to EU environment and energy policies as buildings use 40 % of total EU energy consumption and generate 36% of greenhouse gases in Europe. While the replacement rate of existing stock is very small (1-2% per year), the construction sector is on the critical path to decarbonise the European economy. This is a unique opportunity for sustainable business growth provided that products and related services for both new and refurbished buildings are affordable and of durable quality. Yet, the sector is highly fragmented (over 95% SMEs) and sensitive to economic cycles.

    The Energy-efficient Buildings Program is a partnership between the European Government and the private sector as represented by the Energy Efficient Buildings Association (E2BA) (that includes all building industri enterprises in Europe).

    The Energy-Efficient Buildings Program intends:
    • to create and integrate technologies and solutions enabling to massively reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions;
    • to turn the building industry into a knowledge-driven sustainable business, with higher productivity and higher skilled employees;
    • to develop innovative and smart systemic approaches for green buildings and districts, helping to improve the competitiveness of the EU building industry.
    Quantitative objectives of the Program are:
    • to increase private investments in research & innovation up to 20% of turnover;
    • to create 10 new types of high-skilled jobs implemented through knowledge
    transfer and training;
    • to develop the technology to reduce energy and CO2 in building industry by 90% and by 95% in next years,and massively develop smart districts and buildings.


    Information and Communication Technologies




    The potential and capabilities of modern ICT systems are still growing exponentially fuelled by the progress in electronics, microsystems,networking, the ability to master increasingly complex cyber-physical systems and robots, and progress in data processing and human machine interfaces. These developments provide major opportunities for Europe to develop the next generation of open platforms on top of which a multiplicity of innovative devices, systems and applications can be implemented.

    These new solutions,massively supported by Horizon 2020 will enable a wealth of new business developments in particular for SMEs,will contribute to boosting competitiveness, creating jobs and supporting growth,and will make European ICT industry a global leader.

    The ICT research & development programs under Horizon 2020 provides a strong and powerful response to the main challenges faced by Europe in the field: firstly, the need to maintain a strong expertise in key technology value chains; secondly, the necessity to move quicker from research excellence to the market. Six main activity lines have been identified in the ICT programs,supported by hundred of billions of funding:
    - A new generation of components and systems
    - Advanced Computing
    - Future Internet
    - Content technologies and information management
    - Advanced Robotics Projects
    - Micro- and nano-electronic technologies, Photonics developments


    Innovation in Small & Medium Sized Enterprises




    The objective of Innovation in SMEs is to maximize and optimise the Research, Development & Innovation environment for SMEs, including through the establishment and facilitation of a range of support and massive funding services, with the aim of strengthening the innovation capacity of SMEs and creating value on the market and/or into society. A range of actions contributes to building innovation management capacity for Small and Medium Enterprises. Innovation management capacity is the internal ability of companies to manage innovation processes from the generation of the idea to its profitability on the market.

    SMEs can find this kind of support via a dedicated SMEs Instrument, which is a novel approach to support SMEs' innovation activities. It attracts more SMEs to Horizon 2020,and helps to increase the economic impact of project results by a company-centric and market-driven approach. The SMEs Instrument addresses the financing needs of internationally oriented SMEs, in implementing high-risk and high-potential innovation ideas. It aims at supporting projects with a European dimension that lead to radical changes in how business (product, processes, services, marketing etc.) is done. It launches companies into new markets, promote growth, and create high returns of investment. The SMEs Instrument addresses all types of innovative SMEs so as to be able to promote growth champions in all sectors. With this strong support,European small & medium sized enterprises will become global leaders in innovation and development.


    FUTURE & EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES STRATEGY


    The visionary aspects and exploratory characteristics of Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) might make it sound like a kind of magic, but the mission of FET is actually very concrete: to turn Europe's excellent science base into a competitive advantage.

    FET actions under Horizon 2020 strategy are expected to initiate radically new lines of technology through unexplored collaborations between advanced multidisciplinary science and cutting-edge engineering. It will help Europe grasp leadership early on in those promising future technology areas able to renew the basis for future European competitiveness and growth, and that can make a difference for society in the decades to come.

    The Horizon 2020 future and emerging technologies programme has three complementary lines of action to address different methodologies and scales, from new ideas to long-term challenges:
    - FET Open,funds projects on new ideas for radically new future technologies, at an early stage when there are few researchers working on a project topic. This can involve a wide range of new technological possibilities, inspired by cutting-edge science, unconventional collaborations or new research and innovation practices.
    - FET Proactive,nurtures emerging themes, seeking to establish a critical mass of European researchers in a number of promising exploratory research topics. This supports areas that are not yet ready for inclusion in industry research roadmaps, with the aim of building up and structuring new interdisciplinary research communities.
    - FET Flagships,are long-term initiatives where hundreds of excellent European researchers unite forces to focus on solving an ambitious scientific and technological challenge, like understanding the Human Brain or developing the new materials of the future, such as Graphene.


    SOCIETAL CHALLENGES STRATEGY




    A challenge-based approach will bring together resources and knowledge across different fields, technologies and disciplines, including social sciences and the humanities. This will cover activities from research to market with a new focus on innovation-related activities, such as piloting, demonstration, test-beds, and support for public procurement and market uptake.


    Health,Demographic Change and Wellbeing


    Responding to this challenge, research and innovation (R&I) under Horizon 2020 is a huge investment in better health for all. It aims to keep older people active and independent for longer and supports the development of new, safer and more effective interventions and technologies in health and wellbeing. R&I under Horizon 2020 also messively contributes to the sustainability and development of National Health System.

    Research & Innovation programs supported by this call will:
    - greatly improve our understanding of the causes and mechanisms underlying health, healthy ageing and disease;
    - massively improve ability to monitor health and to prevent, detect, treat and manage disease;
    - effectively support older persons to remain active and healthy;
    - test and demonstrate new models and tools for health and care delivery.


    Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine, Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy




    Horizon 2020 research and development programs support and massively sustain a transition needed towards an optimal and renewable use of biological resources and towards sustainable primary production and processing systems. In this way European agriculture,fishing and forestry will produce more food, fibre and other bio-based products with almost zero waste, inputs, environmental impact and greenhouse gas emissions, and with enhanced ecosystem services, and adequate societal value.

    Agriculture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture, together with the bio-based industries, are integral parts of the European economy and society. Relying on the use of limited natural resources, these sectors produce and process biological resources to satisfy the demand of consumers and a wide range of industries for food, feed, bio-energy and bio-based products. While they enhance Europe’s self-reliance and provide jobs and business opportunities essential for rural, coastal and marine areas, these sectors,with Horizon 2020 massive support,will also successfully face all ennvironmental challenges,which require solutions based on research and innovation.


    Smart,Green and Integrated Transport




    Horizon 2020 is allocated,with hundreds of billions of fundings,research & development programs for Transport Challenge will contribute to four key objectives, each supported by specific activities.

    Horizon 2020 will provide massive funding for a resource efficient transport that respects the environment by making aircraft, vehicles and vessels cleaner and quieter to minimise transport’s systems’s impact on climate and the environment, by massively developing smart equipment, infrastructures and services and by improving transport and mobility in urban areas.

    Horizon 2020 also aims at a better mobility, less congestion, more safety and security with a huge reduction of traffic congestion; with a substantial improvement in the mobility of people and freight; by developing  new concepts of freight transport and logistics and by reducing accident rates, fatalities and casualties and improving security.

    Horizon 2020 supports and sustain the global leadership for the European transport industry by reinforcing the competitiveness and performance of European transport manufacturing industries and related services including logistic processes and retain areas of European leadership (e.g. such as aeronautics).


    Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials




    Horizon 2020,with this Challenge,massively funds,with hundred of billions investments,research and innovation with the following specific objectives:
    - to achieve a resource – and water - efficient and climate change resilient economy and society,
    - the protection and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems,
    - a sustainable supply and use of raw materials, in order to meet the needs of a growing global population within the sustainable limits of the planet's natural resources and eco-systems.

    The ability of the economy to adapt and become more climate change resilient, resource efficient and at the same time remain competitive depends on high levels of eco-innovation, of a societal, economic, organisational and technological nature. With the global market for eco-innovation worth trillions per annum and expected to triple by 2030, eco-innovation represents a major opportunity to boost competitiveness and job creation in European economies.

    To ensure European added value and given the transnational and global nature of the climate and the environment, their scale and complexity, and the international dimension of the raw materials supply chain, activities have to be carried out at global level. With drastically reducing resource use and environmental impacts, whilst increasing competitiveness,sustained by Horizon 2020,Europe will make a decisive societal and technological transition to an economy based on a sustainable relationship between nature and human well-being in short time.

    SENATE VOTES TO ALLOW FOR SPACE SUBSIDIES
    Law signed by the Emperor.


    Consul Robledo addressing the Senate.
    Consul Robledo successfully maneuvered the Mars Subsidization Act of 2015 today after heated debate between the Progressives and the Conservatives throughout the week, sending the law to the Emperor's desk, who promptly signed it. The law serves to allow the Imperial Ministry of the Treasury to subsidize businesses who wish to build factories on Mars. The Progressives argued that the subsidies are key to encouraging the businesses to function, especially since Euro-Tech expressed concern that they would have difficulty funding the project on their own. The law will provide the subsidies to get to the planet and to help build factories, but once they are built they will be on their own financially, so to speak. In his address to the Senate, Consul Robledo said "Our goal in passing this law is not to allow corporations to enrich themselves of the Imperial dole, but instead to encourage the growth on Mars of corporations so the terraforming process may begin in earnest." The Conservatives argued against it, although their opposition was highly fractured, with some arguing against it for financial reasons, some for religious, and some purely because Consul Robledo's liberal administration is highly disliked across the isle, despite its huge popularity with the people. With the political alliance between the Emperor and the Consul's Progressive Party, many laws the Conservatives opposed have been passed with little issue.

    The Emperor signed the law the same day, saying in a press conference outside the Imperial Palace: "This law will allow the Imperial Space Administration to begin the terraforming process sooner than any of us had hoped. Obviously, we do not expect to be doing anything related to terraforming tomorrow, but the construction can begin hopefully soon when we finish the current research base. This is an exciting new path for the Empire, and humanity in general, and it is a great honor to be able to lead Eurasia down it alongside Consul Robledo." The specifics of the law have not been released, although Emperor Augustus did pledge to make them available to the public as soon as possible.

    JAVED TEMPLE OF MURAZ RE-OPENS

    Muraz.
    In a period of turmoil and international crisis, when every country seems to seek out for more technical progress, but to loose its past in the process, New Tarajan confirmes itself as the exception.
    Summarizing, this is the core of the speech pronounced by Prime Minister, Count Carl Van Houden, and Baron Gustav Haschenbach, Minister of Cultural Heritage, this morning in Muraz.
    The occasion: the re-opening ceremony of the Javed Temple.


    The temple from the main courtyard.

    The temple is one of the most beautiful pieces of early Ajanic architecture of the Waning Era (487-1505), a mixture of the ancient and noble tradition of the vanished Ajanic Empire and the new style which will slowly impose itself in the Shahdom of Astana, reaching its peak only centuries later.
    It was built between 911 and 915 by shah Javed IV, after his recent re-conquest of the Kashair plain, in order to thank the gods for the successful campaign in the region. The propagandistic element was far too clear, and since then the wonderful temple became the symbol of the restored power of the Shahdom over the northern territories of ancient Tarajan.
    Enlarged and restored by many shahs during the centuries (with a late intervention of famous tarkhan Rashid Balili in 1533), the temple was then left in disuse during the first centuries of Antanaresian rule (during which it also became, briefly, a Christian church), until the beginning of the Sigismundian Period caused an increasing interest in Ajanic antiquities. As a result, the temple was restored by King Sigismund VI in 1660.
    Terribly damaged during the Karabak War and the Tarajani Civil War, after the Restauration the temple immediately attracted the attentions of scholars and arts lovers, who feared that it was on the verge of collapse. Then, a massive renovation program began, with the support of the Tarajani government and the direct financing by the Imperial and Royal House.
    A project which has just come to an end, with the opening to the public of this wonderful piece of art and history.


    The opening ceremony has been an occasion also to present the true meaning of the renovation of the temple: "We are living in a period of great change: our technology is allowing men to travel so far as to reach Mars. And New Tarajan has always been in the frontline of human technological advancement." the Prime Minister said: "But, differently from all the others who followed our path, we have no intention to forget the past. Without history, without our artistical heritage, even with all the space colonies possible, we would become simply obsolete machines in the form of men."
    Concluding, "New Tarajan will always looking further ahead, but only with its past tightly in its hands."

    COLONIAL SOVEREIGNTY?
    Emperor addresses the issue of Ortus independence.


    A disappointed looking Consul Robledo watches as Senator Altimari delivers another speech supporting independence.
    Urbem Sol
    Citizens gathered outside the steps of the Imperial Palace today, eagerly awaiting the announcement from the Emperor over the growing issue of Ortisian independence, some worriedly and some hopefully. The Ortus Province, a more far flung region of the Eurasian Empire, has been pressing for some time to be granted some degree of autonomy, or perhaps even independence, with supports citing the Imperial Policy of not even acknowledging the discontent as reason enough to seek independence. The supporters see Emperor Augustus and Consul Robledo's refusal to grant a referendum as tantamount to forcing them to seek independence through other means, although these have not been highlighted by the movement. Detractors of independence have cited Ortus' long relation with the Eurasian Empire as reason enough to stay, not to mention the benefits of remaining under Imperial authority. The Emperor today surprised many by announcing he would directly address the issue, much to the gall of some more conservative Senators, who view the Emperor as essentially legitimizing an illegitimate movement by speaking of them.

    At the conference, the Emperor said the following: "Despite the rather vocal support for the independence movement, the Imperial Government does not feel that it is reflective or representative of the general opinion of the Ortisian people, and thus we will not entertain any such displays of discontent. If the Ortisian people truly wish to leave the Empire, I suggest they find a way to do so that does not involve vitriolic and divisive television ads and having Senator Altimari rant on the Senate floor only to have cloture invoked. We are confident that this movement does not represent the will of Ortus, and thusly we have decided to allow a referendum to take place in Ortus to decide whether or not it should be independent. Whatever the results are, we shall enact it as the will of the Imperial Government. Thank you."

    Some commentators and pundits have attacked the Emperor's statement, with one Senator Altimari, who is the only supporter of independence currently elected to the Senate, saying on the Senate floor "We all know that, if the ballot finds Ortus should be independent, as it ought to be, Emperor Augustus and his minion, Consul Robledo, will simply ignore it and squash our hopes of independence. What we need to do is-" Unfortunately, the Senator's speech was cut short when he was yet again censured by the Senate majority.

    INDEPENDENCE REFERENDUM FAILS
    Senator Capito addresses the issue on the Senate floor.

    The Senate chamber before opening.

    Urbem Sol
    All but one member of the 600 strong senate rejoiced upon hearing the news that the Colony of Ortus, which has been under Imperial authority since 1901, will remain a part of the Empire. The referendum, which was supported by the Emperor and the Consul, failed definitively with 68% of Ortisians against independence. One woman from Ortus had the following to say "I know we're a colony, but the Empire has been good to us. Can you imagine if we were on our own out here?" This sentiment was echoed by many on the Senate floor, with Senator Capito, a proponent of provincial status for Ortus, saying the following "The people have spoken, and we can no longer pretend that independence is what they seek. The Ortisian people strongly desire to be Eurasian, and frankly, they ARE Eurasian. I, for one, am sincerely excited to have Ortus remain a colony of the Empire. In fact, I will introduce legislation soon to establish Ortus as a province of the Empire. It is time that we treat Ortisians as the citizens of the Empire that they are."

    In the colony of Ortus itself, the Colonial Prefect, Marcus Furius Bibaculus, announced that he would be seeking the approval of the Senate to begin transitioning Ortus into the "waiting list" to be a province, although the list has no-one on it and there will likely be no waiting involved. The process for seeking provincial status is relatively simple, with it only requiring a vote by the Senate to change the colony into a province. However, once a colony becomes a province, it is required to restructure its internal government and hold elections to create the necessary bureaucracy for managing itself. This has not phased Bibaculus, who said [i]"This is an exciting new path for Ortus to take. As a province, we could

    ARVEYRES COMMISSIONS CARLISLE PARK



    The Bravado Promenade, containing over 600 species of flowers native to Arveyres.

    The Carlisle Park, also officially named the Flora Reserve and Royal Park of Saint Carlisle was recently inaugurated by Regent Oriane. The park offers the largest variety of flora and greenery of any park in all of the Arveyran Union. The park was planned in 1875 as the Victorian Flower Plaza; the construction however, was postponed due to the Religious Revolution which would occur ten years after the grant was given to the Cabinet of Nature Preservation. In 1987, the idea was brought back up with the proclaimed Green Revolution, several protestors ordered the demolition of the already-damaged former house of the Saint Carlisle. The rotted, broken house was torn down, and a lush green campus was placed there, but now under government control.



    The Virgin Promenade, containing statues of Electran dieties.

    In 1998, the Cabinet of Nature Preservation, which was rendered defunct in 1885 with the institution of the new government, was revived. The cabinet raised the money publically to reimburse the grant given to them in 1875. The raised amount was much greater than the first grant, giving the cabinet £6,000,000. The park saw the first pavement blocks of the walking pathes, located at the center of the Virgin Promenade, in 2011. The park, containing over 2,300 unique species of flowers, trees, bushes, aquatic flora and grasses and over 120 marble statues, is the largest and most varied park in all of Arveyres



    The Godiva Orangerie, dedicated to the nation of Aloia, hosts over 24 varietes of orange native to Aloia and Arveyres.

    The Carlisle Parks Committee, which was only able to be created by help from citizens of Arveyres, which is one of the most multi-cultural nations in the world, recognized the fact that many people from different walks of life would be able to visit and enjoy the park, and was able to come to the conclusion that the park should recognize and commend other nations for their various actions to Arveyres. The Godiva Orangerie is dedicated to the nation of Aloia, also throughout the park (outside of the Virgin Promenade) are various statues of former monarchs and rulers from various other nations to show honor to them.

    RELIGIOUS RIOTS UNFOLD IN PATAVIUM
    Police struggling to contain situation.


    A rioter is arrested outside a bank in Patavium.

    Patavium
    Religious riots have unfolded in one of the most densely populated cities in the Empire today following the murder of a Muslim man by a Christian gang, and the Vigiles Urbi are strained in their ability to actively contain the growing unrest. The riots started originally as protests by the Muslim community after nineteen-year-old Ziyaad Salam was killed in a violent gang attack by the Christian militia group "Hutaree" near the border between the Muslim and Christian communities. Muslim religious leaders led a peaceful protest throughout Patavium, but the procession was attacked by members of the Hutaree and several Muslim militia groups retaliated, and now Patavium is on the brink of anarchy with various religious factions vying for control of key areas, with some siply out looking for vengeance. The Vigiles initially responded to contain what was thought to be a typical riot, but according to Prefectus Vigiles Quintus Fabius Ambustus, "It quickly became apparent that this was not an ordinary riot, and we issued a general order that all police were to report to duty and prepare for riot dispersion." The efficacy of this is dubious, however, as the police have only really succeeded in containing the riots and violence to the already strained Muslim and Christian neighborhoods, and the police have been hard pressed to maintain the situation as it is now. The Prefectus Urbi, Fabius Rusticus, has requested that the Praetor of Lorium deploy the provincial detachment of the Imperial Vigiles to help the overextended police force. Thus far, casualties from the riot have hovered around sixty, with two of them being police officers, although one was accidentally killed by falling debris. It is probable, however, that more could have been killed inside the neighborhoods, with the police unable to report the deaths.


    Officers attempt to disperse the crowds as a car burns in the background.

    The religious turmoil in Patavium dates back hundreds of years, to when many Muslims and Christians were persecuted by the Imperial Government and forced to flee Eurasia. Patavium had the largest non-polytheist minority in the Empire, and was unwilling to force them to leave, as they provided the majority of low-wage labor in the city, and their forced removal would have been disastrous to the local economy. Thus, the Christians and Muslims were forced into the slums of the city, where they competed with each other for work from the wealthy Imperial merchants and leaders. Religious tensions arose almost immediately due to distinctly different cultures, but the main source was competing for work. The Eurasian who employed the two groups more often than not would employ Muslims due to a permeating dislike of Christians throughout the Empire at the time, and this was a source of massive discontent. The practice has been long since abandoned today, both due to anti-discrimination laws passed throughout the Empire but also due to a shift in religious beliefs, with more people choosing to practice atheism or agnosticism (current statistics place Eurasian Polytheism and Agnosticism/Atheism at near equal levels). However, the Muslim community is still wealthier than the Christian community, and this has led to tension and violence in the past.

    The damage to property and to urban structures has been extensive thus far, with rioters burning several drug stores, gas stations, and other buildings, including housing complexes. On-the-scene reports indicate that the police's use of tear gas and noise machines against crowds of unruly citizens have been ineffective, and it would appear that the riot shows no indication of ending any time soon. For now, the police and the rioters are going head-to-head, with no side possessing a clear advantage. Should the Praetor deploy the Provincial police, however, it is likely that the police will gain the upper hand.

    THE RETURN OF LUXURY
    Bentley unveils new brand icon


    The news was in the air since the last years, however the official confirmation has been welcomed with a mix of surprise and sincere wonder: Bentley, one of the best known historical luxury car manufacturing brands of New Tarajan, is back.
    The company, which ceased activities in 1995 after a serious setback, was then acquired by the Saab Group, but with a limited production of existing models and few renovations.
    Now that the Saab Group has launched a new series of initiatives to widen the range of its products and to acquire a new, more solid, foothold in the domestic and international market, the revitalization of Bentley was used as a mark of this process.
    As such, the brand has been fully re-activated, and now is ready to move forward at the conquest of new markets.
    "This is a great moment, for us, but also for New Tarajan as a whole" commented Bentley new CEO Adrien Hoedfer "Bentley has always been a mark of luxury. The equation was simple: Bentley = prestige" he said "Great cars for great customers, this was the motto behind the brand. And we are proud to be the heirs, the followers, of such a noble tradition."
    To celebrate and mark the re-vitalization of the brand, indeed, Bentley will launch a whole new series of models, directed, as always, to high-level customers.
    However, with new flexibility.
    "We wish to expand our activities in many markets, and to do so, we need to adapt our offer to what the customers really demans" Hoedfer said "Thus, our whole gamma of models will answer to different needs and interests by our customers, also adapting to their economical needs."
    In few words, while keeping its old tradition, Bentley will not only modernize its offer, but also its economical position, so to say: by being a luxury brand, but also open to the needs of customers not belonging exclusively to the extremely riches.


    The first model to be launched will be the Bentley Mulsanne, the successor to one of the most famous models of the brand.
    The new Mulsanne will be "a masterpiece of Tarajani luxury car manufacturing, a true demonstration of our capabilities, a sort of moving piece of art condensing the long-lasting tradition of luxury products in our country."
    The model features a re-calibrated V8 engine, with a 13% efficiency improvement and 50 miles greater range. Its sleek yet subtle silhouette is free from needless clutter such as antennae.
    But it’s the quality of the experience inside the car that makes its phenomenal performance so striking.
    With a wealth of handcrafted details, the Mulsanne has been built from the ground up around the concept of a peerless travelling experience.
    "This is a world where minute details make all the difference. This is the world of the Mulsanne." commented a proud Hoedfer.



    The model will be shown at the Astana International Motor Show.
    But it is not the only surprise Bentley has in the pocket: new models are ready to be announced soon, as confirmed by Hoedfer himself.
    "The Mulsanne is only the first model that will reach the market" he said "But we have many other concepts and designs, and products which have already reached the last phase of development."
    Among them, there is the Continental GT.



    The perfect fusion between a sport and a luxury car, the Continental GT will be a flexible product, with nine different versions, equally divided between the convertible and the coupè model.
    Some of them mount the new V8 engine (the same of the Mulsanne, a product of the Propulson & Machinery Progress Program, Car Sector Division), but all of them will offer to their owners a unique experience, worthy the name New Tarajan has in the field of luxury.
    For example, the "classic" Continental GT will feature a powerful W12 twin turbo engine, up to 590 PS from 575 PS, and an innovative variable displacement system that creates more power, but with fewer emissions than ever before. Alongside this increased performance is a suite of refinements to create the most luxurious travelling experience. They include a new, more sculpted and sporty steering wheel allowing the driver’s hands to fit, and connect, more closely with the car. There’s an optional semi-aniline hide that forms the enhanced straight-flute seating for an even more luxurious travelling experience.
    As Hoedfer pointed out commenting the model: "Supercar speed meets handcrafted luxury."

    A good news for an expanding market: the last reports issued by the CPB-N.T.B.E.P.A confirmed that the car manufacturing industry of New Tarajan is rising, and the horizons are more than positive.
    Many think that the industry is going to live soon a new golden age.
    The rebirth of Bentley is a powerful symbol of this new prosperity, and also a mark of the direction the industry will take: toward new peaks in luxury.

    NEWEST TIMEPIECES REVEALED
    Vacheron Constantin and Patek Philippe release newest line of luxury watches.


    Eurasia has long been the home of the most exclusive and luxurious timepieces in the world, and the top two producers have again put the rest of the industry to shame with their newest lines of luxury watches. Vacheron Constantin, a brand of watches that makes its home in the small village of Lugdunum in Patavium, released the new line called the Traditionnelle, which will be made up of well over thirty models, some of which will feature grand complications and others will be appeal to more minimalist tastes. The most complex, the Traditionnelle World Time, will only be available to those who specially order it. The first timepiece that will be available to the general public will be the Traditionnelle Patrimony, for which the line of time pieces was named. The CEO of the company, Lucius Verenus, said "We are proud of the new timepieces that we have developed. Vacheron Constantin has long been one of the leading producers of luxury time pieces, and we will continue that legacy."


    The various models have been discussed, and the Traditionnelle Calibre 2755 and 2253 will feature separate dials with the month, day, and date all arranged symmetrically over the second dial, which is situated over a small skeleton view into the internal second chronometer of the watch. It will be available in either 24 K gold, silver, or rose gold. It will be available in either manual or automatic.


    Also released will be the Traditionnelle 14-Day Tourbillon, which will feature a skeleton view port over the second chronometer, a traditional hour-second display, and a newly developed power meter which will show how long the watch has before it must be wound again. The watch will only be available in manual movement.





    Patek Philippe, possibly the most luxurious watchmaker in Eurasia and thereby the world, has again put the rest of the industry to shame with their 175th Anniversary Celebration timepieces. Their newest additions are the Calatrava line of timepieces, which will feature eighteen new different watches of the utmost quality. Some will be simplistic in nature, with the only complications being a date window, with others being complex chronographs designed for professional timing. CEO of Patek Philippe, Titus Pullo, said "In commemoration of our 175th Anniversary of our inception, we will announce the Calatrava line, which will be the most luxurious and and exclusive timepieces the world has yet seen."


    The Patek Philippe 5905 Platinum Chronograph will be one of the six chronographs that the Calatrava line will feature, and will be a self-winding mechanical movement watch with a day, date, and month window equally divided in three on the top of the bezel, along with a second hand that will feature a sweep-second hand and a sixty-minute counter on the bottom of the watch face. It will be available with a blue face and a black face, both of which will be encased by sapphire-crystal face and platinum bezel.


    The most luxurious of the Calavatra line will be the 5950 Grand Complication, which will feature an ultra thin manually wound movement, as well as a split-second monopush chronograph, seconds subdial and sixty-minute subdial. The 5950 will also be available with a black face, and features interchangeable full-metal backing and sapphire crystal backing to expose the intricate mechanics involved with the watches function.

    Kiwi Muscle Roars On





    The Chrysler Group has announced their new line of motor vehicles for the upcoming financial year at the Detroit Motor Show last night. For most part the company is operating in a "steady as she goes" fashion, with no drastic changes to widely successful line up. Perhaps the highlight of the night was Dodge Motors (A member of the Chrysler Group) announcing new revisions to their flagship Charger line. While the interior remains same, the engines have been further tweaked allowing the top end Charger Hellcats to pull out a whopping 707HP from their 6.4L Supercharged V8 powerhouses. While the brutish Charger appeals to the inner man child in all of us, the interior remains modest at best, allowing for comfort, but nothing too fancy. The Charger is the main driver of the Dodge line up, with the model alone accounting for nearly half of Dodge's total sales, though this could also be put down to the fact the NZ Police Force almost exclusively uses Dodge Chargers for their highway patrol and rapid response vehicles. 

    On the other end, Chrysler Motors announced it's revised Chrysler 300 and Chrysler 200 range of cars. The Chrysler 200 is a relatively new range of compact mid sized sedans, aimed at the urban market. The Chrysler 300 on the other hand, is the flagship luxury car in the Chrysler arsenal, while it doesn't possess Bentley level luxury, is provides great bang for your buck, and is aimed at the upper middle class. 

    The real star of the show was the new pricing announcement. In response to cuts in corporate tax rates and the high vehicle turnout and thus large profit, the Chrysler group is dropping the price across the board. The new pricing means the cheapest car offered by the group, The Holden Spark is priced at a meager $16,500 whilst the costliest Dodge Charger checking out at just under $110,000.

    NEWS FROM ANTANARES


    Lexus: sharing industries


    JMC, responsible for the production of the Lexus cars in Antanares, diffused the last hour, during the night reunion of the stakeholders of the company, the information that Lexus, the luxury car brands of Antanares, will be shared with an, for now, unknown car company of Europe and Asia, for the local production and diffusion. Tony Mendez, responsible for the Car Sector of JMC, said "We are interested to all the possible markets for our vehicles. Europe and Asia is a competitive one and we think that we would sell, in a better way, a better product if we enter in this area with a local partners" he continued affirming that, for now, the details of the collaboration will not be revealed.
    Lexus is one of the most famous and diffused brands of Antanares in the country and outside it. The cars, often used from the Ministry and for the diplomatic visits, are a symbol of the excellencies of Antanares in the world. Designed and produced all in Antanares, the cars are transported all around the world. The policy change of the company for the market of Europe and Asia is possible explained with the lot of competitors that are in the area, like the companies of New-Zealand, in more close relationships with local sellers and producers.


    First augmented player of the A-League


    Dimitry Vasilov was, one year ago, one of the top player of soccer in Antanares. Top scorer of the A-League for two consecutive years, was involved into a car accident after the final of the A-League with his girlfriend. Luckily, there weren't dead, but he was unable to continue his carrier on the soccer. Now, after one year, he is another time on the field, thanks to the Sarif Industries. Surprisingly, Vasilov entered in the stadium with the other players of Velikogovolka FC, with the spectators that welcomed him with five minutes of applause. Thanks to the technology of the Sarif Industries, Vasilof returned not only to walk, but also to run and jump and, of course, play. Vasilov is the first sportive that use the new augmentation to re-enter in the sport world and, probably, more will follow him after the last night, that confirmed his talent in the soccer, even after the tragic incident. No comment were released from the player or the Sarif Industries, but to the news several opponents of the augmentations replied with a series of furious tweet online, against the use of technology to change the human body.

    ARVEYRES LAUNCHES HOSPITAL SHIP



    Arveyres, a nation with an aim to provide a more robust humanitarian response anywhere in the world, has launched its first ever dedicated hospital ship under the Royal Union Navy. Being a converted supertanker, it is considered the largest of its kind with a minimum of 1,000 patient capacity and state of the art health equipment and facilities. The hospital ship, as a recognized humanitarian vessel, is expected not carry any offensive weapons but with defensive weapons only, however, the Defense Ministry did not confirm such.

    Her Serene Highness, Regent Oriane X, being the Overseer of the Royal Union Armed Forces, personally attended the launching of the nation's first dedicated hospital ship to be operated by the Royal Union Navy at the port of Sancesa, in the Kingdom of Sancesa. The Royal Union Navy stated that 4 more hospital ships, of smaller size, are planned to be built and will surely boost the nation's humanitarian missions domestically and in every corner of the world.

    President Martin Addresses Parliament on Economic Concerns




    President Christopher Martin addressed the Tisalseitsian Parliament today to address concerns on the national economy which has been in a downward spiral for the past 5 months. This is after the National Election Board reported that the President's Approval rating had fallen to 41% down from an all time high of 67%. In the speech he said that the Government needs to become more proactive in solving these economic problems. He also reported that if the economy shows no sign of improvement in 2 weeks the country will enter a depression.

    "To the assembled members of the parliament of the Tisalseits Federation and to the people of Tisalseits. I address this Parliament with a sole issue on my mind. The economy. For nearly 6 months now our economy has only fallen further and further. In January of this year our GDP was at an all time high of 150 Billion Dollars. Now it sits at 26 Billion. And the economy shows no sign of improvement. But what has this Government done? Nothing. Nothing at all. But this ends today. We must get this government working at an efficient rate. We need to stop being reactive and start being proactive. Nearly a quarter of the nation is unemployed. And they can not rely on the government for any help because we haven't offered any. While we sit here making 15,000 dollars a month most of the nation is living on 1,200 dollars a year! This is not a livable wage. Later today i will issue an executive order withholding all paycheck from every Government official including my self until we can get this problem solved.

    This country has so much potential. But the Government has done nothing to water this potential. We have let this potential wither and die. We need to stop treating this potential like a cactus, where it is barely watered, and treat it like a rose, where it needs a lot of water. The Government needs to step up and solve this problem. For if we don't see economic improvement we will enter a depression. We must address our economic problems. It won't improve it self."

    THE PRIME MINISTER IS MOVING!
    ...and, so is the rest of government.

    Just a few days ago, Parliament passed a bill that would change the capital of Meigmaland from Atenis to Rùjě-Juàn. There were, of course, those against the move. They claimed that since Rùjě-Juàn is a holy site of Buddhism, it would make people think that Meigmaland is a Buddhist nation, when in fact, Meigmaland has no official religion. To that, those for the move stated that Rùjě-Juàn is just another urban area in Meigmaland. It is near the center of Meigmaland, making it a good spot to put a capital city, and the fact that it is an urban area only helps. Plus, the fact that it is a religious site only helps; it will bring more tourism to the city, not just from Buddhists, but also from those visiting the capital of the country.

    Of course, with the capital moving, the Prime Minister, Parliament, and the High Council need to move with it. Because of this, The city is building a circular park called "Gōnjuán Zènhǔ" that will contain all of the buildings needed to run the government, including the house of the Prime Minister.

    On a different note, ever since Parliament officially made the unofficial languages of Meigmaland Jazo and English* a year ago, there has been not much but positive feedback. The majority of Meigmalanders are already natives of the language, and those who aren't often speak languages that are related. Other groups that speak unrelated, non-Jazo languages don't seem to mind enough to protest the change. So, to everyone reading this, hòurái!

    * Meigmaland has no official language, but English and Jazo are the most spoken.

    RIOTS COME TO AN END IN PATAVIUM
    Over 200 dead; billions in damage.


    A candlelit vigil for the slain held in the city center earlier this week.

    Patavium
    The violent religious riots in Patavium have finally been brought to an end through the deployment of the Provincial Vigiles, but the casualties on both sides far outnumber what any agency, either independent or Imperial, had estimated. Whole neighborhoods have been revealed to be destroyed, and the loss of life has been shocking to the whole Empire. The Ministry of Justice has estimated that well over 200 people are dead, both Christians and Muslims, due to the violence, and over ten Vigiles officers lost their lives, either from fighting or from accidents. A further five firefighters lost their lives, four from a building collapse and one from a mob of angry rioters. The city itself has suspended all nonessential functions, with such things as busing and the metro transports being used only by emergency personnel to transport the injured, which run in the thousands. The hospitals have experienced a massive influx of injured and wounded, and one doctor was quoted as saying "There are just so many. We've had to transfer some of our less critical patients to facilities outside the city. There simply isn't room." The dead have been temporarily moved to a secondary school gymnasium, being the first area that the Vigiles located for temporary storage.


    The remnants of the burnt Christian Church.


    The destruction has been widespread and far-reaching, and many historic neighborhoods have been burned and demolished in the rioting. Perhaps the most egregious casualty was the Al-Zaytuna Mosque in the Muslim district of Patavium, which has stood for almost 600 years. Long the center of Islam in the Eurasian Empire, the mosque was burned down by Christian rioters, and it was only saved from collapse by the Vigiles, firefighters, and nearby Muslims who were able to put out the majority of the flames, although some parts of the building collapsed. In response, Muslim rioters burned a Christian church, the Voice of Deliverance Foursquare Church, which did collapse due to it being too deep within rioting areas for the Vigiles to respond rapidly enough. The death tolls, as previously stated, are over 200, with tentative estimates being ~250. Most came from sectarian violence between Christian and Muslim rioters, but around 25 were killed by the Vigiles.


    Firefighters fight a blaze as the riots come to an end.

    The Prefectus Vigiles, Quintus Fabius Ambustus, said in a press release "After many days of terror and violence, we can safely report that the riots in Patavium have come to an end. It pains me to report that we lost fifteen brave souls today, all lost trying to defend the innocents of our city and in the line of duty. Vigiles Agrippa Paesentius Terenteianus, Quintus Oranius Iustianus, Titus Tuccius Dignus, Primus Hirtius Cumanus, Canus Fabius Tranquillus, Caius Atilius Afer, Placus Didius Centumalus, Marcellus Laetorius Eudoxius, Arruns Norbanus Buteo, and Gallio Petellius Libo perished while trying to stop these violent and detestable riots. Firefighters Vopiscus Trebatius Sellic, Opiter Tettius Dalmatius, Servius Caecilius Ignatius, and Caius Atronius Rufrius died in a fire inside a home while attempting to rescue a trapped family, and Tullus Vesnius Orosius was killed by a mob of rioters after becoming separated from the Vigiles assigned to protect them. The city grieves with the families of these men, and we grieve with the families of the countless slain innocents. They shall not be forgotten."
    RIOTS POSE QUESTIONS IN THE SENATE
    Growing coalition calls for investigation into religious tensions.

    Urbem Sol
    Following the Patavium riots, which are amongst the worst in modern Eurasian history, a growing coalition of Senators, both liberal and conservative, have called for the Consul to establish a special Camera to investigate religious tensions throughout the Empire. The overwhelming majority of Senators in the Empire are either Eurasian Polytheists or atheists, and only a handful are of religious minorities. This has lead many, specifically Christians and Muslims, to accuse the Senate and Imperial Government of being indifferent towards the necessities of religious minorities. Some Senators have indeed been vocal about their disdain for the monotheistic minorities, and national polls have time and again revealed that most Eurasians either dislike or simply do not understand Christianity and Islam. Further, the Empire has a history of violent religious repression (perhaps none more infamous than the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, which leads many Christians to view Eurasia as Satanic.), and some remnants of these issues are still evident.

    The Senate Coalition is lead by liberal Senator Crassius Tullius Ferrotus of Tergeste, himself an atheist, who was quoted as saying "The Empire has a long and sordid relationship with monotheistic faiths, Christianity specifically, and it is the duty of this Senate, as the representative body of the people, to do its utmost to ensure that all people are equal, be they atheists, monotheists, Maiorists, or anything else. I urge the Consul to create a special investigative committee to thoroughly investigate the religious tension that lead to these horrific riots."
    However, the Ministerium of Imperial Security has announced that the leaders of the riot, many of whom are in prison at this time, have ties to Christian terrorists organizations, and it will be conducting further investigations into the matter.

    GAY CONVERSION THERAPY BANNED
    Supreme Tribunal declares gay conversion therapy to be illegal.


    Protesters supporting gay rights gathered outside the Supreme Tribunal Building.

    BREAKING
    In a historic decision, the Supreme Tribunal ruled 6-3 that the institution of gay conversion therapy, a series of pseudo-medical treatments designed to convert an individual from homosexuality to heterosexuality, is illegal under the Proper Production Act of 1807. The law, which was originally passed to ensure that industries were not ascribing false properties to their products, was used by the plaintiffs to highlight the nature of gay conversion therapy, which was alleged to be a non-medical procedure and harmful to individuals who partake in it. The ruling of the Tribunal has effectively banned the operation of gay conversion clinics overnight, and has placed stiff penalties on the clinics that continue to operate in defiance of the ban. In it's majority opinion, Chief Magistrate Canus Floronius Vincentius wrote "The institution of gay conversion is a practice that is completely adverse to the accepted opinions of the overwhelming majority of medical experts, and is not only completely fallacious but harmful to its 'patients'. Gay conversion therapy has resulted in untold numbers of suicides, and it maintains a frightening incentive to make profits at all costs whilst disregarding the mental state of its participants. The consensus amongst medical experts is clear: gay conversion is not a medical treatment. We cannot permit institutions in the Empire to hide behind the vernier of professional respectability so they can practice pseudo-medicine that harms homosexual individuals...We know that homosexuality is not a choice, and the notion that it can be treated as a mental disorder is unscientific and detrimental to our society as a whole. Gay conversion therapy has no place in a society that places reason and rationality above superstition and bygone bigotry."

    The argument against gay conversion therapy made by the plaintiffs was based mainly on a recent report by the Imperial Association of Psychiatrists (IAP), which read, in part, "...[H]omosexuality is an innate state of existent in a percentage of the population, and it is not a mental disorder in the traditional sense that it has been viewed historically, and efforts to 'convert' homosexuals are ineffective and are harmful to the individual...[h]omosexuality is not a disorder and should not be viewed as such." This report, the plaintiffs argued, means that the gay conversion industry is in violation of the aforementioned Proper Production Act of 1807, which read "Businesses shall be required to omit false claims from their products...[and] businesses shall be prohibited from putting forth products that do not accomplish their expressed benefits[.]" The defendants, however, argued that the use of gay conversion is a legitimate medical treatment, and pointed to numerous cases of individuals who claimed to be "cured" of homosexuality. However, there have been numerous cases of individuals coming forth and admitting that the conversion does not work and that they were lying to themselves.

    Due to the ruling by the Tribunal, the remaining gay conversion clinics throughout the Empire will be forced to close within one month, and the establishment of new clinics will be banned. Some clinics have already announced they will refuse to close, and the conservative fundamentalist organization "Friends of Jupiter" has announced their clinics will ignore the ruling. However, the Ministry of Justice also announced that "Violators of this ruling will be punished to the full extent of the law. Refusal to acknowledge a decision by the Supreme Tribunal is illegal and we will treat it as such."

    The new government of Panasis

    The new government of Panasis was formed today, the government will consist of the Populist Centre-left Restitutionem Party, aided by the socialist Bigtopian National Congress. The parliament has elected the leader of the Restitutionem Party James Nelson as the new prime minister.  The new prime minister has held a press conference where he stated he will make good on his campaign promises of a reinvigorated economy. However he has stated that this will not come at the cost of the Panasian peoples rights or welfare.

    Government Begins Massive Infrastructure Project
    With its price range "somewhere in the billions or trillions", the President authorized the beginning of a massive infrastructure project that would commence the building of thousands of new bridges and roads, as well as repairing ageing bridges and adding street lights and pathways to rural areas with low populations.  The main focus will be the creation of a bridge connecting Reisal's two land masses. At its completion, it will be one of the biggest bridges in Esamir.


    Government Temporarily Bans All Flights From Zackalantis
    The Government has taken its first steps in protecting itself from the "Red Death", despite the large distance between Reisal and Zackalantis. It has banned all flights from Zackalantis and will also cease and ongoing trading. The Government will provide assistance to citizens of Zackalantis so that they can return home safely if they seek to leave. The Government is reportedly ready to close its border with its close ally Duresia, who they recently signing a Treaty of Neighbouring Cooperation with, if the disease arrives there. President Alexander Berg also released some stinging criticism of the Government in Zackalantis, calling them "a bunch of hooligans who can't run their country".

    Fedoras officially banned in Texania!


        Austinia,Texania
        Julia Puii

          Atheists across the Nation of Texania are outraged after The National Commission found that Fedoras were degrading the morality of Texania. Jails are filling up across the nation as many fedora wearers have been arrested. This action has suprised many Texanians as to why the court would ban the hat. Much evidence points to the internet as associating the fedora with Atheism.

         A poll done by Texanian News has shown that most people don't care for those "gersh-derned commies" as one interviewed elderly man had said. Nonetheless this is sure to question the officially secular government.

    Grand Haven Set To Host Inaugural Esamir Olympics



    View of Grand Haven from Mount Ahorangi (Named in honor of the fabled Aotearoan Queen). The Parliament House visible in the center left, in line with Anzac (Allied New-Zealand Armed Forces) Drive.


    All eyes are on the sprawling mega city of Grand Haven, which has just been confirmed the first ever host of the Esamir Olympics. Grand Haven is the brain child of Prime Minister David Lovelock, who took power in the 90s while New-Zealand was at the height of it's sudden tremendous economic boom following the leadership of the reformist Michael Jefferson. Over the years Grand Haven has grown to be the flagship of the nation, and a masterpiece of a city, with lavish government spending costing the state over $2 Trillion Dollars in direct funding, and approximately $1 Trillion more in relocation grants and economic stimulus. In the late 80s Grand Haven was a struggling city by the name of Preston, with a monumental council debt and skyrocketing unemployment following the collapse of Holden, who was the sole large employer in the city. Chrysler restructured basing itself in Detroit, and Preston was left forgotten. In 1995 Prime Minister Lovelock, facing the prospect of complete renovations of the old parliament house (in Auckland), made the decision to re-spec the old parliament house as a museum, and move to a newly built parliament house in Preston. The government swiftly bailed out the Preston council altogether and took direct control of the city. 

    Lovelock, eager to show off his nations wealth to the world, quickly renamed the city Grand Haven (a name that set high expectations) and proceeded to carry out the largest single government investment project in history. The Parliament approved an upfront spending of $1 Trillion NZDs on the development of the city, and the construction of the extravagant parliament house, which cost $11.5 Billion and is built into the mountain itself. Over the years government spending on the city has been lavish, with a consistent flow of cash into the cities limitless coffers, has allowed architects and city planners go wild with their greatest desires, effectively working with a blank cheque budget. So much that the city of 650,000 has a fully functioning metro system that provides easy access (defined as within 10 minutes walking distance) to 95% of it's residents. Furthermore, the road network is undoubtably the best in the nation (which itself it renowned for it's world leading State Highway network), with a traffic jam occuring on average of twice a year. TWICE A YEAR! The recently constructed international airport and port complex were a part of the $125 Bn "infrastructure expansion package for urban sprawl" approved in 2013, and far exceed the current demands of the city. In fact, the chief architect herself came under fire from the media for her spending $7.3 Bn on a solid gold statue of the Goddess Athena that stands atop the airport, welcoming all visitors to the city. In fact, this trend continued, with future architects going as far as to placing large titans on either side of the harbor mouth and numerous other statues around the city, typically near places of significant importance. All of this is undoubtedly a hint towards strong Eurasian involvement in our nations growth, and the fact that many New-Zealanders in the 1800s adopted the Eurasian gods and their religion. The only real exception to this rule would be the parliament house which has a gigantic statue of Zealandia, who is considered to be a metaphor for New-Zealand and the spirit of the nation in the form of a woman. However, Anzac Drive is probably the most famous land mark in the city, and possibly in New-Zealand itself. Anzac Drive spans the length of the War Memorial all the way to the entrance of the parliament house. Throughout the drive (starting at the memorial end) are statues with short descriptions in chronological order, showing the birth and tribulations of our young nation in a truly dazzling fashion. 

    The city has recently also taken on the name the "Garden City" with lavish government spending resulting in well maintained gardens that exist all through the city and captivate tourists with its beauty. Government spending on the city has no doubt been excessive, with numerous Prime Ministers openly admitting that the city is a statement of wealth to the world, a shameless show of New-Zealand's prosperity. That said, the city is also noted for it's somewhat intimidating police force. Due to the extremely sensitive nature of the city, AA Rockets and other military placements can be seen around the city, and the Grand Haven Police Force (which is by far the largest and most funded per capita) is equipped with the latest equipment. Grand Haven is the only city where police can commonly be seen patrolling the streets in full body armour with fully automatic assault rifles. That said, the local PD has made numerous efforts over the past to gain the trust of the people, and this has for most part won over the residents of Grand Haven, but some tourists may find it slightly unnerving, especially during the olympics when security will be at its highest level.

    Northern Territory to Become Australian Eltebena's 7th State

    The Referendum to make the Northern Territory Australia's 7th state has been successful with 54% of Territorians voting Yes and 46% voting no. To celebrate the success of the referendum, the Australian Eltebian Flag has been temporarily changed to the flag the new state of "Northern Australia".


    new Northern Australian flag

    While the Northern Territory has had self-governance since Australian Eltebena ended its colonial status and Federated on New Years Day in 1901, it has only been represented by two Senators in the Federal Senate. As a state, it will now be represented by 12 senators, many of whom are likely to be right leaning, meaning the current Green/Labor Government could have trouble getting legislation past the senate.

    Next month's General Election is expected to see the current government returned to power.

    PROTESTS IN NORTHERN KAEVI

    Just months before the October National Elections, staged protests have sprung up in the larger cities of Unity and Festival prefectures. No protests have turned to violent action as of yet, but the Security Administration has been put on heightened alert in order to ensure peace.
    Many de-facto protest leaders are calling for the abolishment of the country's communist ideology, claiming that they are tired of living under a "failed system" and want wages equal to neighboring nations.



    It is currently unknown if the protests are linked to the Luvointel movement a few years earlier. At that time, the government made a deal with the Luvointel to grant certain areas of the country, primarily in the north, special capitalist privileges.
    While this deal has seen some success, many considered it to be only a temporary solution. The Speaker herself has yet to address the issue, but she is expected to make an appearance within the coming days as the issue progresses.

    These events could hurt the Communist Party in the polls, but legal scholars say that it is too soon to tell if these events could mean the end of the party's long-time reign.
    Recent years have seen a growing number of people leaving the archipelago for Lisoone and the Kaevi Governates in Arveyres. While many agree that change is necessary for Kaevi's future survival,
    many worry that a total shift to capitalism could mean the end to the extensive government programs that have become part of Kaevise culture and lead to a disregard for the environment.
