    Dromoda has a rice shortage


    -Kyongdong- the people's republic estimates that this harvest season for rice will be a terrible season due to the cold of recent weeks in Dromoda.

    cold weather is sometime's a problem for rice. when its too cold the rice won't grow. and this season has such a cold weather that most Dromodians now order their rice online. most Dromodians hope for a more stable rice market but nothing is clear if the government is unlikely to come up with modified winter rice.

    CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION UNDERWAY


    Frontier Hall, site of the constitutional convention.

    ZUMBROTA, Capital District -- Just blocks away from the UPS-SECURS Zumbrota convention, another equally important convention is underway. Delegates from all 86 provinces are gathered in the Aloian capital to discuss the current state of affairs and possibly update the constitution. The current constitution is perennially criticized for seeming out of touch and out of date. All the delegates are saying the same thing: there needs to be a change. There is no way to know how much change there will be until after the convention.

    End of cold season means more rice for Dromoda

    -Kyongdong- the department of agricultural projects wants to make clear that some of the crops failed this season but the government was prepared. after all the cold weather was not so intense as expected and most farms where and are not influenced by the cold weather. also the Dromodian government wants to stimulate rice farmers by subsidizing bigger ricefields.

    It's a bird, it's a plane... No, it's a plastic bag





    Protesters have taken to the streets, demanding that the government do something to curb the rising pollution levels, a direct result of the nation's industrial boom and thriving auto industry. A year ago today, the newly elected Labour-led "Socialist Coalition" vouched to put an end to excessive air pollution, returning the environment to what was deemed "healthy" levels. While the government achieved that goal and lowered the pollution levels to perfectly healthy levels by numerous reputed health and welfare organisations, the people are not pleased. Many took to the streets chanting "Safe for us, but not for NZ", clearly expressing that they were not happy with the current situation. 

    While the nation has experienced staggering economic growth, it's once pristine environment has no become a shadow of it's past, with the urban area's no longer exhibiting their beauty, and only national parks and the Southern Coast looking like they did 30 years ago. The good news however, is that the Department of Conservation (In conjunction with the Green Party) and GreenPeace both released statements in which they said that should the government allocate substantial funding to the Conservation budget, the environmental deterioration can easily be reversed, and the nation can see significant change in it's environment by the end of the year, returning to pre economic revolution era level's by the end of the decade. On top of this, reports show that businesses and the economy will barely be affected by the change, with multiple corporations actually funding the GreenPeace reports. Sound's like a perfect idea right? Wrong! The DOC (Department of Conservation) asks for $500Bn NZD a year. That's a hell of a lot of cash. 


    UPDATE (a week later)
    The Prime Minister announced that due to the wide turnout of protesters, strong public sentiment, and the results of an online based official referendum showing strong support for more environmental protection, the new yearly budget (effective 2 weeks from now) will incorporate the $500Bn NZD the DOC asked for. However as a result of the sharp spending increase, the IRD (Inland Revenue Department) will be enforcing a new updated tax regime. The new regime has flatly hiked taxes up by 5% across all income thresholds, bringing the top band taxation rate to 65% on every dollar earned after $200k, with the lowest band being 10% on every dollar after $15k. The first $15,000 however will remain tax exempt. Nevertheless, the average income tax payed by the tax payer now rises from 33.6% to 37.9%.

    Presidential Elections begin!

    Presidential candidate, Coriolanus Snow, is predicted to win this years elections.

    "The mountains are betting" goes the Atanosian slang meaning: “the game is on.” It is a phrase on the lips of more than one Atanosian political commentator and aptly describes the tension as Atanosia gears up for presidential elections just one week away. The game is nearing its climax as more than 8,000 delegates gather in Caelux on Thursday to choose the opposition candidate who will face President Vladimir Putin in February elections.
    Putin’s own party is also holding primaries but the incumbent is the sole contestant, despite grumbles that his candidature breaks an unwritten rule that the presidency should rotate between the north and south every two terms. Few events show the underlying machinery of Atanosia’s political culture better than primary elections which inevitably throw up backstabbing, legal wrangles, last-minute defections and backroom deals as politicians jostle to end up with winning tickets. Even as delegates prepared to cast their votes, two bomb blasts in the capital of Caelux underlined the deteriorating security. Amid such high tension, the elections may be the biggest test yet of Atanosia’s institutional integrity. Five aspirants are bidding for the All Progressives Congress (APC) ticket, but the primaries are largely seen as a two-horse race between Coriolanus Snow, the leader of the Progressive Party taking his second shot at presidency, and ambitious, wealthy businessman Alma Coin, who has previously served as president.

    The winner will take what is widely seen as the best chance yet to dislodge the ruling People’s Democratic party (PDP) from power for the first time since the military relinquished control. The fact that an unwieldy opposition held together this long is itself a rare achievement. The fragility of the coalition was underscored when all the runners were asked to signed contracts saying they would continue to back whoever won. “Change is absolutely necessary for Atanosia this time, with our current government resorting to armed conflict as a measure to solve international disputes. The UPS invasion into Zackalantis serving as an example”, said Plutarch Heavensbee, a previous candidate for president. “He made probably the single biggest effort to clamp down on corruption in Nigeria, and he’s remembered for that,” said John Campbell, a former US ambassador to Atanosia, who feels that the predecessor of Putin, Alma Coin whom began the national campaign on cracking down on corruption within the government, is thin on policy detail despite decades on the scene. Insecurity has worsened under successive governments, but even those old enough to remember Coin’s time in power are not all fans. “I didn’t like that period at all,” said Victoria Feyisipo, 64, who runs a small tailor shop overlooking a typically bustling, crowded street in downtown Caelux.

    “It was so tense, so strict. It was like Atanosia died, having to queue for every little thing, soldiers flogging anyone who disobeyed.” Identity politics is never far in Atanosia, and Coin’s image as a strict Liberal may cost him support in the more democratic south territories. In contrast, his main challenger, Coriolanus Snow, has an image for being a slick political operator, whose skills at moving between parties are seen as an asset in manoeuvring an ever-shifting political field. Alexandros Mateva, who has served as a minister four times, said: “Coriolanus has a wide network of friends because of his [participation] in government since the military era. That is vital for success.” While other politicians have played up on personality politics, Snow (his second name is always used for some reason) has produced a detailed addressing security and job creation challenges. A formidable war chest from decades in various businesses has also helped, but it has come with allegations of corruption dating back to his time as a customs official. In spring, a man carrying ballot boxes had his arm hacked off as the election of APC ward leaders descended into chaos. The number of votes cast at local level primaries has sometimes exceeded delegates registered. And last month, police teargassed the parliament in an attempt to prevent the speaker, who had defected from the ruling party, from casting a vote. The heat will only be turned up as presidential campaigning begins in earnest.

    EURASIAN SOCIALIST PARTY WINS SUPERMAJORITY
    The ESP Sweeps Both Houses of Senate


    The Rector Seating for next year. Ductor Seating has yet to be released.

    BREAKING
    The Eurasian Socialist Party has won a historic majority in the Rector and the Ductor, cementing their super-majority for the foreseeable future. The ESP already held a majority in both houses, but now can vote with impunity on anything they so choose, even if the opposition parties form a coalition. The National Humanist Party also won several new seats from the Conservatives, adding to the left-wing victory in the Senate. The Humanists, who have formed the longest running Senatorial coalition in Eurasian history with the EPS, have added to the super-majority. Several Commonwealths are still tallying ballots, but the results are likely to only be in the ESP-NHP favor. Further, the majority of Commonwealths still tallying are only doing so due to the massive number of votes cast in favor of the ESP and the NHP. Premier Fortier announced that his cabinet will "Pursue aggressive renovation of the National Healthcare system and the social safety systems, as well as propose long overdue environmental legislation. This is a clear mandate from the Eurasian people, and we will not ignore it."

    This election is likely to work in the Premier's favor when he seeks a second term in 2016, especially if the wide-ranging reforms he has spoken in favor of are enacted by the Senate. Meanwhile, members of the Conservative and Centrist Parties have spoken against the election results, calling them "A travesty", and that the administration is clearly "Encouraging ballot discrimination against conservatives." Several members of the Senate Conservative Coalition have questioned the Electoral Commission's efficacy, with one Rectores saying "There have been documented incidents of police preventing conservatives from voting. This election was a sham." However, this news agency has been unable to uncover exactly what the Senator was speaking of, and thus cannot verify the claim's legitimacy.

    Liberals Fail



    In recent elections the Liberal lost control of the Dail Eireann(Lower House) and the Seanad Eireann(Upper House). This happened after a Liberal controlled Congress passed laws abolishing minimum wage, banning gay marriage, banning recreational drugs, and imposing many new taxes on the Irish population. 10 years after the Conservative Party fell from the highlights after 100 years in power they are once again back in power. The Majority Leader of the Dail Eireann said in a speech soon after Conservatives took control "This election shows one thing. If a party wants to stay in power they must respect the ideas of the Irish People. And this is what the Liberal Party failed to do. For years the Conservative Party fought for a livable wage and the Liberals destroyed that. And because a great majority of the Irish people supported it we legalized gay marriage and recreational drugs.So the Irish People have spoken and they do not want the Liberals in power."

    Here is the Party Breakdown for the Dail Eireann

    Conservatives(Dark Blue):287
    Liberals(Yellow):45
    Socialist(Red):66
    The New Right(Light Blue):71

    Here is the Party Breakdown for the Seanad Eireann
    Conservatives(Dark Blue):77
    The New Right(Light Blue):42
    [The Conservative-New Right Coalition=119 seats(99 seats needed for a majority)]
    Liberal(Yellow):37
    Socialist(Red):41

    EUROPEAN NEWS - GOVERNMENT - ECONOMY - INDUSTRY - DEFENSE - TECHNOLOGY & INNOVATION - PROJECTS
    EUROPEAN ARMED FORCES BEGIN THE "DRONE MODERNIZATION PROGRAM"
    A new strategic concept that combines the mechanization and automation,in a combination capable of extraordinary efficiency and lethality in the tasks assigned
    New highly advanced technologies that will bring European economic and military power to a new high




    The international political environment,especially in the last period,it has become increasingly unstable and dangerous,rich as ever with pitfalls. All this has prompted the General Staff of the European Armed Forces,in cooperation with the entire Ministry of Defence and the Government,to develop innovative strategies to cope with future military threats quickly and efficiently. All must be seen in a wider perspective,namely strengthening,especially in technological terms,and the reorganization of the colossal European military instrument.

    Besides,this process goes on for some time already,and moves on various priorities. On the one hand,with the Air Force Modernization Program,there has been a consolidation of the air combatant forces,for example,with the entry into service of the newest and hyper-technological "F-38 Thunderstar",among the most advanced fighter in the world. We have seen the progress made in the defense of the country against potential air threats,the Ballistic Missile Defense System,with the creation of real missile shield,with defense and identification systems based on land,sea,and air,and with a strong and modern satellite web. We have also seen a real action of strengthening and consolidation of national naval force,both the surface force,with the 21st Century Surface Combatant Program,both the submarine force,with the new and highly advanced "Sauro Class",as well as a huge development of power projection from the sea,with the "Poseidon Class Super Aircraft Carrier",and the "Europa Class Amphibious Assault Ship".

    In this framework,places the Drone Modernization Program. It covers all the branches of the European Armed Forces,and is based on the conjunction of great mechanization,always characteristic of the national strategy,to an increasing degree of automation. The goal is to create a force entirely automated,to use as an operative and logistic support structure for the entire military instrument,thus ensuring a huge tactical advantage over opponents. The watchwords at this point,are two. Preparation and training,as each soldier must be able to make the best efficiency with this superiority,as the key to everything is the professionalism of the men and women of the national military. And high technology,since automation requires a degree of technological development extremely advanced,from all points of view,not only as regards weapons and equipments,but also for what concerns the entire industrial and research apparatus instructed to study them and produce them.

    Connected to the program there are then a series of experimental projects and operational programs,aimed at creating new and highly advanced weapon systems and equipments,characterized by extreme lethality and efficiency,recently arrived at the stage of mass production (in many cases the first samples have already entered service). All this required,and will require,the commitment of hundreds of companies,from large multinationals to small and medium enterprises,both public and private,and has enabled the creation of thousands of new jobs,stable and highly specialized. In short,the whole industrial apparatus of the nation drew an enormous development from these projects. They have also requested billion investment,both governmental and private,and especially in the research and development,involved dozens of agencies and research organizations,public and not. So the whole nation has gained a colossal advantage in terms of technology and know-how,which can be easily transferred to the rest of the economic system.

    Therefore we analyze the various projects.


    ARES




    Difficult terrain and threats,such as ambushes and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) can make ground-based transportation to and from the frontline a dangerous challenge. While helicopters can easily bypass those problems,they often present logistical challenges of their own and can subject flight crews to different types of threats. Additionally,they are expensive to operate and the supply of available helicopters cannot always meet the demand for their diverse operational services.

    To help overcome these challenges,the Ministry of Defense unveiled the Aerial Reconfigurable Embedded System (ARES) Program. It aimed to develop a new system that could provide flexible,terrain-independent transportation for logistics,personnel transport and tactical support missions for small ground units. It represents the next generation of compact,high-speed vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) delivery systems. ARES VTOL flight module is designed to operate as an unmanned platform capable of transporting a variety of payloads. The flight module has its own power system,fuel,digital flight controls and remote command-and-control interfaces. Twin tilting ducted fans would provide efficient hovering and landing capabilities in a compact configuration,with rapid conversion to high-speed cruise flight. It is envisioned that the flight module would travel between its home base and field operations to deliver and retrieve several different types of detachable mission modules, each designed for a specific purpose. Example modules include: Cargo resupply,casualty evacuation (CASEVAC),and intelligence,surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR).


    DESERT EAGLE III




    Next-generation Desert Eagle III Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) has been deployed in the recent global war on terror by European military forces. Combat proven Desert Eagle III continues to evolve to meet the changing demands of the warfighter.

    -Heavy Fuel Propulsion System
    -Adaptable and Reconfigurable
    -“Special Mission” Shielded Avionics
    -Flexible Data Link Solutions to Support Varied Mission Requirements
    -High levels of Payload Power


    UCLASS




    The Unmanned Carrier Launched Airborne Surveillance and Strike (UCLASS) air vehicle concept integrates proven technologies from F-38 Thunderstar C,RQ-170 Sentinel and other operational systems to provide both the lowest development risk and greatest intelligence,surveillance,reconnaissance (ISR) and strike mission capability. The innovative approach leverages the experience of the European industry and our cross-corporation team to meet the Navy’s requirements for a versatile and supportable carrier-based unmanned aircraft. UCLASS will balance endurance, early operational capability,and inherent growth that will enable operations in any environment or threat scenario.

    UCLASS is envisioned to be a versatile,carrier-based unmanned aircraft system that will provide persistent ISR collection combined with a heavy strike capability. The innovative approach supports the Navy's efforts to develop an operational UCLASS capability within the current schedule and budget.


    VARIOUS




    VTOL Advanced Reconnaissance Insertion Organic Unmanned System (VARIOUS) is an advanced vertical take-off and landing Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) concept with multi-role capabilities. With a maximum payload of more than 1.900 pounds,no exposed rotors and a service ceiling in excess of 25.000 feet,VARIOUS provides the safety and flexibility to perform multiple missions.

    - Precision resupply


    PREDATOR C "VALKYRIE"




    The Predator C "Valkyrie has unique design,reduced signature,and speed increases its survivability in higher threat environments and provides potential customers with an expanded quick-response armed reconnaissance capability.  The aircraft is currently in an expanded mass production program.

    The high-speed,multi-mission Valkyrie is a long-endurance,medium-to-high-altitude Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) that can perform wide-area surveillance,time-sensitive strike missions over land or sea,and a host of other challenging military missions.  The aircraft has much higher operational and transit speeds than current Predator-series aircraft,resulting in quick response and rapid repositioning for improved mission flexibility and survivability.

    Valkyrie is a highly advanced,next-generation UAS.  The jet-powered Predator C is equipped with a poweful turbofan engine capable of producing 4.800 lb installed thrust. The engine is designed for greater fuel economy and features class-leading fuel consumption components. Valkyrie can operate at speeds up to 400 KTAS,a maximum altitude of 70.000 ft,and 38 hours endurance.  Its significant payload capacity enables it to carry multiple sensors,while its internal weapons bay can house 3.500 lb of high precision munitions.

    The next-generation Valkyrie employs the same materials and avionics as Predator B and is likewise controlled from and fully interoperable with,GA-ASI Ground Control Stations (GCS) used for operating Predator-series aircraft. Valkyrie’s low cost and advanced capabilities make it the optimum choice for employment in “swarm” tactics where affordable quantities count in a successful outcome.


    TRACER




    Ongoing counter-terrorism and counter-insurgency operations present tough challenges that our forces must face each day. They need surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities that provide a long-term stare at specific geographic locations so they can detect environmental changes,patterns,and asymmetric tactics. With Tactical Reconnaissance and Counter-Concealment (TRACER),customers have a long endurance surveillance capability for all operational environments.

    TRACER, a lightweight,low-frequency synthetic-aperture radar (SAR),meets the challenges of seeing what was previously unseen by sensing with radio waves rather than light. This dual band (UHF/VHF) SAR can peer through foliage, rain,darkness,dust storms or atmospheric haze to provide real-time,high-quality tactical ground imagery,anytime it is needed, day or night. TRACER’s advanced penetrating SAR technology provides a unique ability to detect threats and illicit activities. Unlike most radars,TRACER uses low frequency radio waves in the UHF and VHF frequency ranges allowing detection through dense forest canopy and even below ground.

    TRACER also incorporates data link technology that allows airborne processed results to be down-linked to ground stations immediately. The system includes a portable ground station to plan,collect,support missions,and exploit imagery. This penetrating detection capability on a persistent surveillance platform provides commanders at all levels with actionable intelligence in a tactical,useful timeline.


    STALKER UAS




    Stalker is an operationally proven small,silent,Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) that provides unprecedented long-endurance imaging capability throughout an array of environments. Image stabilized pan,tilt,zoom capability on electro-optical,infrared, ow-light and high-def imagers with our new image tracker provides leap ahead imaging capabilities in a small UAS both during the day and night. The unique,custom droppable payload compartment allows the customer to precisely drop a small payload from the air. The imagers and laser payloads produce accurate geo-referenced imagery products in a variety of user formats. In use also by European Special Forces,the Stalker UAS is a proven system offering users true utility in two highly capable variants.


    HYBRID AIRSHIPS




    Hybrid Airships introduce the next revolution in affordable transportation directly to the “point of need”,enabling tactical airlift,strategic airlift,humanitarian assistance,disaster relief and ultra-persistence. Hybrid Airships offer large capacity transportation capability with significant fuel economy and reduced operating costs. They can operate from existing infrastructure or service remote “points of need” with austere infrastructure.

    The Hybrid Airship is an un-tethered,unmanned lighter-than-air vehicle that will operate above the jet stream in a geostationary position to deliver persistent station keeping as a surveillance platform,telecommunications relay,or a weather observer. It also provides the Warfighter affordable,ever-present Intelligence,Surveillance and Reconnaissance and rapid communications connectivity over the entire battle space. The technology is available now and ready for integration and flight test.

    This updated concept of a proven technology takes lighter-than-air vehicles into a realm that gives users capabilities on par with satellites at a fraction of the cost (1 to 2 orders of magnitude less). The Hybrid Airships will also integrate reconfigurable, multi-mission payload suites. They are significantly less costly to deploy and operate than other airborne platforms,and supports critical missions for defense,homeland security, and other civil applications. Their operational persistence eliminates the need for in-theater logistic support. In position,an airship would survey a 600-mile diameter area and millions of cubic miles of airspace.

    High-strength fabrics to minimize hull weight,thin-film solar arrays for the regenerative power supply,and lightweight propulsion units are key technologies ready to make a high-flying airship a reality. The combination of photovoltaic and advanced energy storage systems delivers the necessary power to perform the airship functions. Propulsion units will maintain the airship's geostationary position above the jet stream,propel it aloft and guide its takeoff and landing during ascent and descent. Lighter-than-air vehicles,operating at altitudes above controlled airspace under the control of a manned ground station,give users the flexibility to change payload equipment when the airship returns to its operational base to perform different tasks.


    Itegrated Sensor Is Structure (ISIS)




    Integrated Sensor Is Structure (ISIS) is a disruptive Command & Control,Intelligence,Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C2ISR) extremely large dual-aperture radar capability integrated in a fully autonomous stratospheric unmanned airship. This solar and regenerative fuel-cell powered,electric propulsion,extreme endurance stratospheric airship provides broad-area coverage using a dual-band (X- & UHF-Band) radar capable of detecting and tracking Air Moving Tracking Indication (MTI),Ground MTI,Dismounts MTI and Maritime MTI targets of interest; in addition prosecuting targets beneath foliage and Camouflage,Concealment and Deceptive (CC&D) cover with its UHF-Band FOPEN (Foliage Penetrating) abilities. Operating at 70.000 feet the inherent look-down CONOP becomes a low observable (LO) buster and increases combat identification of operating and inbound targets.

    ISIS will have the ability to track a multitude of targets ranging from dismounts to ballistic targets. ISIS can track ballistic targets at ranges well beyond 1080 nautical miles (nm),air targets at ranges beyond 373 nm and ground/dismount/maritime targets at ranges of 186 nm. A single ISIS system can cover 5.507.560 nm2 as compared to a combined AWACS & JSTARS 153.348 nm2 coverage of the mission space. At a goal of 10 years of continuous airborne mission ISIS becomes the most affordable C2ISR asset in tomorrow’s Ministry of Defense fleet. ISIS has developed a first of its kind dual-band extremely large light-weight Airborne Electronic Steerable Array (AESA). With an extremely large radar aperture ISIS requires a fraction of the power of what legacy small aperture radar would require to detect,track and provide fire control quality data to a myriad of users. Technical challenges have been met in regards to high strength-to-weight materials,ultra-lightweight antennas,antenna calibration technologies, solar and regenerative power systems.


    Persistent Threat Detection System (PDTS)




    A tethered aerostat-based system in use by the Army since many years,the Persistent Threat Detection System (PTDS) is equipped with multi-mission sensors to provide long endurance intelligence,surveillance,reconnaissance and communications in support of operative forces

    PTDS leverages a wide-area,secure communications backbone for the integration of threat reporting from multiple available sensors. The system’s sensor integration architecture supports the automated interoperability between tactical/theater surveillance assets and the dissemination of threat data to operational forces to aid interdiction of hostile fires and unconventional threats.

    The PTDS consists of an aerostat,tether,mobile mooring platform,mission payloads,ground control shelter,maintenance and officer shelter and power generators and site-handling equipment.


    Squad Mission Support System (SMSS)




    The largest unmanned vehicle ever deployed with European ground forces,the Squad Mission Support System leverages robotic technologies for unmanned transport and logistical support for light,early entry and special operations forces. It solves capability gaps by lightening the Soldier’s load and serving as a power management resource.

    The SMSS decrease the amount of time a Warfighter has to spend in controlling robotic systems by providing vehicles that can navigate autonomously. The SMSS’ supervised autonomy provide the Warfighter with a reliable squad-size vehicle,which will improve combat readiness,while assuring re-supply channels and casualty evacuations.
    Combining perception with extraordinary mobility allows vehicles to follow the Warfighter across most terrain,guaranteeing the payload the robotic system is carrying will be available whenever and wherever the Warfighter needs it. Few other robotic systems allow for autonomy dependable enough for a vehicle to follow someone without the use of location-disclosing beacons. The vehicle can also operate by remote control,tele-operation or by manual control.

    This system can accommodate light and heavy armed variants,while improving its reconnaissance,surveillance and target acquisition capabilities within the concept of supervised autonomy. In fact a squad-size manned or unmanned support vehicle is critical to today’s asymmetrical and urban battlefields.


    K-MAX




    K-MAX is an unmanned aircraft system (UAS) capable of autonomous or remote controlled cargo delivery. Its mission: battlefield cargo resupply for the European military.

    The K-MAX UAS is a transformational technology for a fast-moving battlefield that will enable soldiers to deliver supplies either day or night to precise locations without risk of losing life in the process. The aircraft can fly at higher altitudes with a larger payload than any other rotary wing UAS. With its four hook carousel,the K-MAX UAS can also deliver more cargo to more locations in one flight.

    The K-MAX continues to exceed expectations as an unmanned platform. The aircraft has met all unmanned milestones to date and continues to excel in the commercial logging and firefighting industries. The aircraft will remain optionally piloted for ease of National Airspace Operations,occasional manned mission flexibility,ferry flights,rapid integration of new mission equipment,and allow rapid return-to-service activities.

    NATIONAL ASSEMBLY CALLS VOTE ON UPS MEMBERSHIP
    Opposition parties want to make Reisal neutral



    In a last minute move before national elections are expected to be held, the National Assembly will hold a vote on whether or not the United Provinces of Reisal should remain neutral in the ongoing feud between the 3 major regional alliances of Reisal. The vote was called by the socialist Liberal Democrat Party, which is currently in opposition, and supported by the Alliance of Greens and the far-right Republican Party. "Our three parties want to immediately resign from the Union for Progressive States. We have no place there. We would like Reisal to position itself with the Union Sphere of Collaboration, which is the best way for us to support the region along with other pro-peace nations." said Nolan Roman, leader of the LDP and leader of the assembly's opposition.

    The party holding a pluarity of seats is the right-wing Unity Party, headed by two-term Prime Minister Melekhov Yan, who supports Reisal remaining in the UPS. "It would make no sense for us to align ourselves with the USC, an alliance who has nations apart of it that were waging war against us and killed citizens of the UPS. We must  stand our ground and show that our nation will stand up for free, democratic elections and against corrupted monarchies. We have no place in SECURS. We have no place in the USC. And we have no place being a bystander while these monarchists crusade through Esamir. We must help." said Prime Minister Yan. The Prime Minister must find at least 326 votes to keep Reisal in the UPS, his party only has 292 seats in the Assembly.

    President Karran Amarram has remained a resolute supporter of the UPS and reportedly use every tool at his disposal to keep the assembly from voting for neutrality. In a recent rare exchange with reporters, President Amarram left journalists with some open-ended questions about what he was going to do.



    President Karran Amarram


    "Listen, I can promise you right now that we will not leave the UPS! It simply will not happen." said the President. Amarram smiled and walked away after he was asked what he would do if the Assembly voted for neutrality, signalling that the President will eventually use his political powers to find a way around the vote.

    ASCUI FLOCK TO ALICAR AS GOLDEN WEEK BEGINS
    MANY TO TRAVEL FROM GOLDEN TEMPLE TO VITAS TO MARK THE NATION'S ANNIVERSARY



    Once again many of the most devoted Ascui made to pilgrimage to Alicar to attend the blessing of High Monk Huit Sho Ng, on the first day of Golden Week, the nation's week long celebration of Ascue's formation over a century ago.  Those who attended burned incense and chanted along with the monks of the temple to ready themselves for the trek, which will take them from the holy city to the modern capital of Vitas, over three hundred kilometers away, many making the journey by horse cart.

    In the past few decades less and less people are participating in the tradition, with most content to enjoy the week long celebration closer to home, while some are even choosing to work a half day schedule instead of taking the time away to reflect on milestone.  "I would enjoy taking the break, but someone has to drive the buses." Says Nu Do Luc, a transit worker in Vitas' central district, "My Father and his family were more willing to make the trip to the temple, it was something I did as a child." He adds.

    Regardless of how Ascui spend the holiday, the fact that it persists is somewhat remarkable in light of a growing secular sentiment among the population, with nearly half of all Ascui saying that they felt 'Less Religious' or 'Non Religious' in a recent poll conducted by this news service.  The Golden Week festivities are rooted in a spiritualism that harkens back to a time when Alicar and the monks of the Golden Temple had more influence on the nation and in everyday life across Ascue.  



    Grand Minister Mukit

    Grand Minister Ara Mukit, a secularist and Liberal Party leader made it to the temple, even though her party holds no seats in the entire Alicar region.  "This day is symbolic of the strength of our people to overcome in all aspects of life, from physical hardships to ignorance.  This is a day when we come together to stand proud as Ascui." The leader said, though this was met with at best, a politely tepid response.  Perhaps she will receive a warmer ovation once the pilgrims make it to Vitas, Mukit's home region and Liberal Party stronghold, later in the week.

    CORIOLANUS SNOW NEW PRESIDENT OF ATANOSIA
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    Coriolanus Snow handily defeated Alma Coin and won himself a second term on Tuesday after a bitter and historically expensive race. Snow beat Coin after nabbing almost every one of the 8 provinces. In a sweeping victory speech early Wednesday morning, Snow thanked every Atanosian who voted, and vowed to work with leaders from both parties to tackle the country's challenges.

    "Our economy is recovering, a decade of war is ending, a long campaign is now over," he told a crowd of cheering supporters in Caelux. "And whether I earned your vote or not, I have listened to you, I have learned from you and you have made me a worthy president." Snow added he has "never been more hopeful about Atanosia. ... We're not as divided as our politics suggest. In his speech, he offered clues to the policy goals of his first term, which included a deficit reduction plan that combines tax increases with spending cuts, a comprehensive overhaul of the nation's federal immigration laws and tax reform. He called on Democrats to join him in achieving those goals. "I know that political campaigns can sometimes seem small, even silly," Snow said. "And that provides plenty of fodder for the cynics who tell us that politics is nothing more than a contest of evils or the domain of special interests. If you ever get the chance to talk to folks who turned out to our rallies and along the rope lines of high school gyms, or saw folks working late at campaign office or some tiny county a long way from home, you'll discover something else." The Snow victory marks an end to a years-long campaign that saw historic advertisement spending levels, countless rallies and speeches, and three much-watched debates.

    Now, Snow heads to office facing what will most likely be bitterly partisan negotiations over whether the Putin tax cuts should expire. The House will still be majority Democrat, with Progressors maintaining their majority in the Senate. "In the coming weeks and months I am looking forward to reaching out to leaders of both parties," Snow said. He won't have much time to fulfill that promise. With tax hikes looming and a sequestration deal that will make enormous , automatic cuts in government funding, Congress must move quickly to find a compromise and put Snow's high-minded rhetoric into action.

    New Arboretum Opened in Civitius

    A picture of the arboretum.

    Commonwealth News
    The Commonwealth of Civitius has announced the opening ceremony of the largest arboretum in Eurasia. Currently, the largest is in Urbem Sol, the capital of Eurasia, but with this newest addition to the splendid beauty of the Eurasian countryside it will become the second largest. The arboretum, which cost around $5,000,000 to build, will quickly make up for its large cost by tourism, as already the Civitian Tourism Administration has announced that they will begin a national ad campaign to bring citizens of other commonwealths to visit the garden.

    The Commonwealth of Civitius is one of the most rural in Eurasia, with only two major cities in its borders. Located in northeastern-most Eurasia, it has remained largely secluded from the developments of the rest of the country. Looks are deceiving, however, as it is the education capital of Eurasia, with four of the nations ten best universities and colleges located within it. More, Civitius was ranked in a national poll the best place to live as of 2014, a title it has held for well over ten years now. A spokesperson for the Civitian Administration said "This garden has been constructed with the most minimal destruction of the natural environment that could be done. We took great strides to maintain the integrity of the ecosystems in which it was created. The majority of the budget allocated to the project was spent on a visitors center other basic necessities. We have tried to create as serene an experience as possible here."

    R.J's return

    "For Whom the Drum Tolls", the last work of the famous antanaresian writer Robert Jordan, is finally published. The last work of the artist, one of the most renowned writer of the West Cost of the country, is the last of the series of the "For whom the ...", a series of works set in the biennium 20-30 of the last century, during the Civil War that destroyed a large part of the country. The war, fought from the two different faction after the death of the President of the Republic of Arcadia. The book is about the life of one of the partisan of the Republic of Arcadia, the factions that lost the war. The protagonist, a sort of anti-hero, is, according to the introduction of the author, the representation of the spirit of Antanares, damaged from years and years of war of brother against brother.
    The hero, involved into the assassination of the President and now deployed into the region of Targahar, between the desert and the mountain, fight against the federalist, supporter of Gregorian Valencourt, during the last hour of the conflict in the Island, conquered totally from the federalist in the 1934, one year before the end of the conflict.
    The work was acclaimed from the reviewer with happiness. The work, according to them, is the "most important work of the modern literature of the Federation". Another talk about "For Whom the Drum Tolls" like the masterpiece of a century, the last one, the best representation of the spirit of the antanaresian. Confirmed the success from the sell. The book is, in fact, first in all the online and not stores.

    During the voyage

    Continue the voyage of the "Earthwing", the first craft with human crew en route for Mars. The Aurora Base, on the Moon, concentrates all its efforts on monitoring the voyage of the ship, using the line of probes and sensors mounted from the "Nighwing" during the return trip from the Red Planet. During the voyage the scientists on board will run a series of test and experiments in the laboratory of the "Earthwing", conducting test on the ship and on its systems, all produced in Antanares.
    About the question of the production, one of the issue raised for the high costs of the mission and for its successors, the journalists asked to the Chief Executive of the ASEA, Margaret Globian, about the possibility of collaboration between the ASEA and other space agencies of the Esamir. The woman, that lead the agency from ten years, responded with a bland reply "We consider all the doors open, this is all".

    NATIONAL ASSEMBLY VOTES TO LEAVE UPS
    Presidential Signature Needed to Make Move Official



    President Karran Amarram is reportedly "stunned" by the result of the vote on UPS membership in the National Assembly. Yesterday 356 voted to leave the UPS while 294 voted against. The result was strictly along party lines, the Unity Party, who holds 292 of 650 seats, only got the support of 2 independents and failed to get the support of the 188 seats held by the Alliance of Greens and the Republican Party. Immediately after the bill was signed, Prime Minister Melekhov Yan dissolved Parliament and called a snap election, hoping to win a majority and undo the passing of this bill. Normally, after a vote, the bill is submitted to the President and he has a constitutional obligation to sign it if a majority in the assembly voted for the bill. But will President Amarram sign this bill?

    Last week, when asked about what would happen if Reisal's assembly voted for the move, he said that it "Simply will not happen." Sources say that the President will risk impeachment and removal of office to make sure Reisal stays in the UPS. The vote is a huge blow to the Prime Minister and the President, both of whom were so confident about them winning the vote. Nolan Roman, Leader of the Opposition and leader of the left-wing Social Democratic Party, has taken this as huge personal victory.



    Leader of the Opposition & Social Democratic Party, Nolan Roman

    "This is a huge, huge victory for Reisal. We can finally have our own indpendent foreign policy agenda." said Roman. "The President is required to sign this. If not, we will use our constitutional power to remove him from office and pick a new President.

    The Presidents office has only said that all military operations currently ongoing have not been changed and no troop movements have been ordered.

    EAU CLAIRE RIVER AT HISTORIC LOWS

    UNIVERSITY OF OUISCONSIN SAYS CLIMATE CHANGE TO BLAIM


    The Eau Claire River as it passes through Eau Claire, Ouisconsin. The river once filled its entire channel regularly from glacier meltwater, but since Ouisconsin's last glacier completely melted three years ago, the river has shrunken to a trickle.

    EAU CLAIRE, Ouisconsin -- The Eau Claire River is ending a year of historic low levels, a trend believed to have been caused by the final destruction of the Robinson Glacier in the Ouisconsin Alps, a major source of water for the Eau Claire. The glacier was destroyed as a result of a changing, warming global climate.

    "We have no doubt that the warming climate is to blame for the loss of this glacier," said Dr. Rebecca Peterson, head of the University of Ouisconsin at Eau Claire's task force researching Ouisconsin's glaciers and the effect climate has on them. "Aloia only has one other glacier left on the north side of the Alps, and that glacier too is experiencing huge losses."

    The glacier was formed in the most recent ice age, approximately 10,000 years ago. The glacier would melt a little during the summer, sending its crystal clear water, down the Eau Claire River, giving the Eau Claire its namesake clear waters.

    "This glacier was an ancient glacier, formed at a time when mammoths still roamed in Ouisconsin, when sea levels were lower and Ouisconsin was a massive landmass," Dr. Peterson said. "The loss of this glacier is a huge loss, not only for the geography of the region, but also the history."

    The river is a very important habitat for the endangered Ouisconsin trout, Ouisconsin's regional official fish.

    "We're worried that a shrinking Eau Claire will spell certain doom for the Ouisconsin trout. That fish is already struggling as it is, trying to come back from its near extinction since the ban of waste dumping into the Eau Claire and its tributaries," Dr. Peterson said. "A collapsing Eau Claire ecosystem will most likely drive this fish species to extinction within the century."

    While Aloia has done its part to cut down on emissions, it is up to the rest of the world to shrink their carbon footprints so this potential ecological disaster doesn't happen anywhere else.

    "It really is a shame that we're the ones who have to pay for the rampant burning of fossil fuels, filling the sky with carbon," Peterson said. "We were among the first nations to recognize the importance of protecting nature, and now we're suffering for other nations' carelessness."

    Celebrations in all the country!


    It is arrived, for the joy for the children and for the families of all Antanares, the end of the year and the celebration of the Day of the Wolf, a reminiscence of the catholic Christmas in Antanares. In all the main and not cities and villages of the Federation is exploded the joy for the period of vacancy. All the public offices are open for the essential services but, like all the years, most of the private shops and offices are closed, how the tradition want.
    In Velikogovolka, the capital city of the Federation, the new year would be welcomed with a series of concerts in the main halls and a series of show in the main theaters of the city. The Municipal Great Hall would present a series of classical concert, with music from all the country and from allied nations, like New Tarajan, Planitia, United State of Europe and others one. MuSa, orchestra of the Federal University of Antanares, will present in the Great Hall the 5th Opera of Von Gretter, one of the most important compositor of all the musical history of Antanares. In the main plaza of the new city the ABS, the Antanares Broadcasting Service, will prepare the annual concert, with various stars of the music and film sectors of Antanares.
    Not less important would be all a series of manifestations that would be held in the historical center of Velikogovolka, like the Old Market, where local products and handicraft products would be presented. Also will abound in the city the historical reconstruction, inspired from the works of famous authors of the past and of historical events.

    Old market of Velikogovolka

    In the rest of the Federation are programmed all a series of important events. Arcadia, one of the main cities of the country, will held in the main theater the annual Great Ball of the Debutantes, inspired from an ancient ball held from a local duke. In Cape Wolf the main buildings will be open for free visits from all the tourists that, in this period, arrive in the city. Same initiatives were launched from the major cities, like the capital city, Arcadia, Cataria, Ilium and other ones. Particularly beautiful would be Sessadraina, with all the channels illuminated with lights and trees. In the city will, at the midnight of the last day of the year, starts a game of fireworks and ancient ships that will maneuver in the middle of the bay of the city with all a series of special effects and lights.

    Egalitarian? Yeah Right!
    (This Article is by a prominent independent left wing columnist)


    From birth we are told of equality. Throughout school we are taught that we are all just as valuable as each other, and that we should follow our dreams cause every single hard working man and woman will be rewarded for their efforts. Our governments before us, and our entire education system spouts marxism. "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need". The so called touch stone of NZ society, remains now only to taunt the hard working citizen, reminding them of the lies they've been fed, and the broken promises of the "Socialist Coalition". The call themselves socialists, but in the pursuit of economic gains they've sold out their very souls to the corporate greed that now drives the capitalist backbone of this nation. 

    If there could be a single picture to describe the nation and it's government right now, it would be the one above. A few rich corporate businessmen and woman in clear focus, while a large number of workers stand blurred in the background. The worker is what holds this nation together, the worker is who built this country, and the worker is the one the Socialists vowed to serve. Yet they run what they call "a tax benefit for NZ employers". The policy essentially means corporates and other large companies get tax cuts based on employment, with companies employing more than 1000 people paying a 0% tax rate. 0%! Who foots the bill for the loss of tax revenue? You guessed it, the worker! The rich get richer and the poor get left behind.

    The socialists try and solve this problem by redistributing wealth, funding free education and handing out large benefits and government assistance, but anyone would half a brain would realise this is an unsustainable situation. They can patch up and try and hide the issue, but they can never eliminate it. The Social Democracy is no longer egalitarian, and the working class survive on the government generosity. One day, some right wing government will get into power, and when they do the workers will suffer. They will fall victim to the vicious cycle the Socialists built. 

    Now you may ask, what drove me to write this? Well, the government just released it's detailed yearly budgetary analysis, fully transparent and hiding no information (god bless the nation for remaining transparent and honest). Industry now accounts for 21.4% of the government's budget, making it the largest category of the budget. That's right, managing the corporates and their extensive tax credits is more important that Welfare, Education, Healthcare, you name it! Admittedly, business/corporate taxes pull in roughly 20% of the government's revenue, combine that with the increase in revenue from tax on shareholders and employees getting higher wages, and the government gives back about 75% of what they get from the corporates and their activities. But it's just a matter of the ethics involved, the corporates and the rich elite are being given so much special treatment, to a point where the government is quite literally falling head over heels to woo the greedy bastards. We've reached a point where our very own prime minister has to effectively beg multinationals to keep their factories here and not outsource to some cheaper, less fortunate countries.

    However, the policies do work, and there is no denying that they have improved the standard of living of the average kiwi, but inequality is on the rise. While the worker gets a $2k pay rise, the businessmen gets a $4k pay rise, and they share holder increases his income by $10k. It's not a case of the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, our nation is still fundamentally left wing and devoted to it. It's a case of the poor get richer, and the rich get way richer. The country is gaining monetarily, and on paper we're doing better, but we're loosing the things we cannot measure. We're selling our egalitarianism for more jobs and extra money. Is it really worth it?

    EUROPEAN ARMED FORCES BEGIN SATELLITE INFRASTRUCTURE MODERNIZATION PROGRAM
    New advanced technologies for tactical communications,command & control,missile warnig and surveillance,ready to support operaive units



    New Strasbourg Space Complex,45th Space Wing performs satellite launch


    The Ministry of Defence new military strategy stresses the importance of satellites. The European military needs to better protect its satellites and strengthen its ability to use them as weapons as the uncharted battlefield of space becomes increasingly crowded and dangerous,as some military leaders say. The space,in the European strategic doctrine,is a domain just like sky,land and sea,and therefore,by developing tactics and technology,should be fully controlled by the national military forces. Indeed,given the international scenario,the space is a domain far more critical than others,and is taking an increasingly prominent importance in the strategic framework.

    The use of space is increasing and becoming an essential component for infrastructure in communications, navigation and timing, agriculture and weather monitoring and disaster relief efforts. The importance of satellites in the military domain is going to continue to increase as nations typically associated with space power look to maintain and update capabilities and other nations look to establish themselves by taking advantage of technology and platform advances.

    Military satellites have formed the backbone of military communication,reconnaissance and navigation capabilities of the European Armed Forces. This is a fundamental capability area in what is becoming a far more contested and congested area of operation. The satellites are key parts of the apparatus for missile warning,and for the identification and neutralization of air and missile threats. Finally satellites are important in the communications,in command and control,and in management of unmanned systems. Modernising satellite infrastructure in its entirety,and advance them from a technological standpoint, it is now vital.

    Moreover,Europe has always been a real power in terms of satellite and aerospace technology,with a broad and consolidated know-how,and a well-developed industrial sector. Just think of the two major civil projects so far undertaken,the Galileo Global Positioning System,and the Copernico Satellite System,of the European Space Agency. Were recently revealed several operational projects, started already for some time,then already completed or in a good development. According to the data,the satellite launches permormed by the Air Force Space Command,in recent months,has intensified. These projects,which have required significant investment by public and private,have involved the entire Ministry of Defense and other government agencies,various bodies of research and development,and a large consortium of companies,both public and private,from large companies to small and medium enterprises,led by the European Space Engineering Corporation (a public company). The satellite projects,then,not only will a large advancement of national military capabilities,but will result in huge benefits in terms of economy,with a massive know-how and industrial sector development,and tousands of highly skilled jobs.


    ADVANCED EXTREMELY HIGH FREQUENCY (AEHF)





    Now a critical element of European national security,military satellite communications delivers vital connectivity to armed forces around the globe,making warfighters safer and more effective.

    The Advanced Extremely High Frequency (AEHF) system provides vastly improved global,survivable,highly secure,protected communications capabilities for strategic command and tactical warfighters operating on ground,sea and air platforms. The system also serves international partners. A single AEHF satellite provides greater total capacity than the entire legacy five-satellite Milstar constellation (the previous satellite network). Individual user data rates will be increased five-fold,permitting transmission of tactical military communications,such as real-time video,battlefield maps and targeting data. In addition to its tactical mission,AEHF rovides the critical survivable,protected,and endurable communications links to national leaders including presidential conferencing in all levels of conflict.


    DEFENSE SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM




    The Defense Satellite Communications System provides military communications to soldiers in the field,as well as commanders over a wider bandwidth than of the AEHF,but less protected.

    The workhorse of the European Military's super-high frequency communications is DSCS,which provides military communications to troops in the field as well as commanders at multiple locations. DSCS also provides uninterrupted secure voice and high data rate communications to Ministry of Defense users,essential tools in monitoring events and deploying and sustaining forces anywhere in the world.


    DEFENSE METEOROGICAL SATELLITE PROGRAM




    The Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) is the longest running production satellite program ever. DMSP satellites have saved billions of dollars and countless human lives as a result of timely weather forecasts.

    Today,DMSP is still providing strategic and tactical weather prediction to aid the European military in planning operations at sea,on land and in the air. The satellites,equipped with a sophisticated sensor suite,can:
    - Image visible and infrared cloud cover
    - Measure precipitation,surface temperature,and soil moisture
    - Collect specialized global meteorological,oceanographic,and solar-geophysical information in all weather conditions

    The constellation comprises two spacecraft in near-polar orbits,C3 (command, control and communications),user terminals and weather centers.


    MOBILE USER OBJECTIVE SYSTEM (MUOS)




    The European Navy’s Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is a next-generation narrowband tactical satellite communications system designed to significantly improve ground communications for national forces on the move. MUOS will provide military users more communications capability over existing systems,including simultaneous voice,video and data - similar to the capabilities experienced today with smart phones.

    MUOS satellites are equipped with a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) payload that provides a 16-fold increase in transmission throughput over the current Ultra High Frequency (UHF) satellite system. Each MUOS satellite also includes a legacy UHF payload that is fully compatible with the current UHF Follow-on system and legacy terminals. This dual-payload design ensures a smooth transition to the cutting-edge WCDMA technology while the UFO system is phased out.


    SPACE BASED INFRARED SYSTEM (SBIRS)




    SBIRS,considered one of the nation’s highest priority space programs,is designed to provide global,persistent, infrared surveillance capabilities to meet 21st century demands in four national security mission areas:

    - Missile Warning
    SBIRS will provide reliable,unambiguous,timely and accurate warning for theater and strategic missile launches to the President,Ministry of Defense,Combatant Commanders,and other users.

    - Missile Defense
    The system will deliver critical information supporting the effective operation of missile defense systems against national and theater threats.

    - Technical Intelligence
    SBIRS will provide the ability to characterize infrared (IR) event signatures,phenomenology,and threat performance data for strategic and operational combatant commanders,the intelligence community,and others users.

    - Battlespace Awareness

    NATIONAL ASSEMBLY THREATENS IMPEACHMENT
    President refuses to sign bill that removes Reisal from the UPS



    The Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly, Nolan Roman said last week that President Karran Amarram would be "quickly removed from office" when asked about what would happen if Reisal's assembly voted to leave the UPS and the President refused to sign the bill. Now this has happened, Roman could lead the charge to make President Amarram the first President to be removed from office by the National Assembly.

    "We have 356 members in this Assembly who want to leave the UPS. We also have 356 members who have agreed to vote for the President's removal from office if he does not find this bill. 356 is more than enough than we need to pass the 326 threshold. He will be gone within the next 2 months if he does not sign this bill." said Roman.

    But some critics say that Roman cannot be so confident in his numbers; after all, there is an election campaign going on, so those numbers are almost guaranteed to change. But the polls are showing that the Unity Party is in no place to regain its once strong majority in the Assembly, but neither is Roman's party.



    The Presidents Unity Party has gone from a strong 1st place showing in the polls to a close 3rd, while Nolan Romans Social Democratic Party closely trails the far-right Republican Party, which has sprung into first place. The Greens hold steady in forth.

    "This is a huge surprise for all of us pollsters." said Don Brooklet. "The Unity Party fallen to 3rd place, something we've never seen before, and the newly founded Republican and Green Party have sprung into first and forth place! There is no way that the Unity Party will gain seats and if this trend continues through election day, President Amarram is doomed."

    ELCA APPROVES PARTNERED LGBT BISHOPS



    MINNEAPOLIS, Hennepin - In their biannual conference, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Aloia, Aloia's largest church body, approved the consecration of bishops who are in monogamous, loyal, same-sex relationships.

    The vast majority of reactions to the news were overwhelmingly positive, a fact consistent with the fact that LGBT individuals have a level of acceptance and approval in Aloia rare in most of the world. "The ELCA has really taken a very positive step forward," Eva Hafwassen, bishop of Mankato, said. "We're truly becoming the church of Jesus's love, and stepping away from being the church of oppression."

    However, a small sect of the church has already condemned the decision and announced plans to secede from one of the world's largest Lutheran bodies. "This is just another sign of the slippery slope we've been falling down for years," Jim Haney, bishop of Wanamingo, said. "The churches in Wanamingo have already entered into talks with churches in Pine Island and Zumbrota to establish our own Bible-believing Lutheran church."

    When we called the bishops of Pine Island and Zumbrota, they contradicted the claims of the bishop of Wanamingo. Augusta Parkin, bishop of Zumbrota, said, "If Jim is trying to establish his own church, he's doing it entirely on his own. Zumbrota is not following him. Pine Island is not following him. He's leading his own church down a path of hate that we are not following." Parkin went on to commend the resolution saying, "We really are doing the right thing. We're showing Christ's love to another demographic. We're 'going and making disciples', as the scripture say. We're making the right choice."

    Saveri and Ejost Founded

    Following months of delegation between the national government and tribal leaders, the Community of Saveri and Ejost has finally been established. The islands will be treated as a separate nation, but shall remain in a permanent, loose political union with Kaevi. The National Assembly has elected Kaikwom Pupuawilhe Wye as Empress of Saveri and Jonerinhein Onjwon Paskrekail as Emperor or Ejost.

    The two were given near-absolute power over their respective lands. However, the two must share a military force, the first of its kind in the Kaevi area, and a currency known as the Island Ronan. Unlike Kaevi's Ronan, the Island Ronan is a fiat physical currency printed by the newly-established Imperial Treasury of Saveri and Ejost.


    Example 5 IR note featuring an abstract depiction of the Saveri and Ejost islands.

    It should be noted that the entirety of the islands have not been ceded to Saveri and Ejost. While an exact depiction has not been generated, the entire northeast area of Saveri and the westernmost end of Ejost have remained with Kaevi. This area includes the massive Ejost Reasearch Facility and forests home to a number of endangered species. The government is currently in the process of relocating Kaevi nationals who do not wish to live in Saveri and Ejost, while also removing Kaevi-owned property from the islands.

    EUROPEAN NEWS - GOVERNMENT - ECONOMY - PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION - PUBLIC SERVICES - INDUSTRY - SMALL & MEDIUM SIZED ENTERPRISES - INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY - INFRASTRUCTURE


    EUROPEAN GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES NEW DIGITAL AGENDA
    New policies and strategies to digitize public administration and business, to achieve maximum efficiency and to create a digital single market
    A huge and ambitious project to provide all citizens and all businesses a digital network fast,efficient,secure and competitive





    To ensure a sustainable future,we must look right now beyond the short term; to cope with an aging population and global competition we have three options: work harder,longer or smarter. Probably we will have to do all three things,but the third option is the only one that guarantees European citizens a better lifestyle. To achieve this,the European Digital Agenda makes proposals for actions that need to be taken urgently to get Europe back on the path of smart,sustainable and inclusive growth. These proposals will set the stage for the transformations that the economy and society,more and more digitized,will in the long run.

    The European Government of Martin Schulz launched at the start of the legislation the Europe 2020 Strategy,with  the intent tp prepare EU economy for the challenges of the next decade. The Europe 2020 Strategy sets out a vision for achieving high levels of employment,productivity and social cohesion and a low-carbon economy,to be implemented through concrete actions at Europe. This battle for growth and jobs requires ownership at top political level and mobilization of all stakeholders in Europe. The Digital Agenda is one of the flagship initiatives of the Europe 2020 Strategy,and aims to establish the key role of information and communication technologies (ICT) to achieve the goals that Europe has set for 2020.

    The Agenda aims to chart a course to make the most of the social and economic potential of ICT,particularly the Internet,which is the essential support of socio-economic activities,whether it's creating business relationships, work,play,communicate or express themselves freely. The achievement of this Agenda will spur innovation and economic growth and will improve the daily lives of citizens and businesses. With more widespread and more effective use of digital technologies can Europe deal the key challenges it faces and offer its citizens a better quality of life,for example in the form of better health care,safer and more efficient transport,a cleaner environment,new media opportunities and easier access to public services and cultural content.

    The ICT sector is directly responsible for 5% of European GDP and represents a market value of 860 billion Euros a year,but it contributes to overall productivity growth in much greater extent (20% comes directly from the ICT sector and 30% from ICT investments). This is due to the remarkable dynamism and innovation inherent in the sector and to the influence that ICTs have on the transformation of the mode of operation of the other sectors. At the same time,the social impact of ICT has become significant: for example,the fact that in Europe more than 450 million people use the Internet every day and that virtually all Europeans possess a mobile phone has changed our lifestyle.

    The development of high-speed internet networks today have the same revolutionary impact that had a century ago,the development of electricity networks and transport. Thanks to the evolution taking place in the electronics industry,the boundaries between different digital devices are disappearing. Services are converging and moving from the physical world to the digital one, universally accessible on any device, be it smartphone, PC-tablet (tablet PC),computer, digital radio or high-definition TVs. It is expected that by 2020 digital content and applications will be provided almost entirely online.

    From this reasoning,it is therefore essential to bring together all the efforts of national actors,public (ministries,agencies,local authorities public companies) and private (private companies and banks),for development of a network internet fast,secure and competitive that reaches every citizen in every corner of the nation. In addition,Europe must start policies,strategies and initiatives to create a true digital single market,to fully digitize public administrations and the economic fabric,to promote efficiency and sustainable growth.


    DIGITAL INTERNAL MARKET & ENTERPRISES DIGITALIZATION





    DIGITAL INERNAL MARKET


    The digital single market has the potential to improve access to information,lead to increased efficiency in terms of reduced transition costs,dematerializing consumption and reducing environmental impact,as well as to introduce better business models and administrative. A rise of electronic commerce generates tangible effects for consumers,as new products rapidly evolving,lower prices,more choice and better quality of goods and services, thanks to cross-border trade and an easier comparison of tenders. An increase of e-government facilitates compliance and access to jobs and business opportunities for citizens and businesses.

    Fo this,the European Digital Agenda has several key actions:
    - On the one hand,the new legislation opens up access to legal online content by simplifying and improving the procedures for release and management of copyright and licensing. For the purpose,the new rules provide a clear framework on collective rights management. On the other hand,the new laws will simplify and improve the efficiency of the rules on re-use of public sector information.
    - To facilitate electronic payments and invoicing,new legislation improves and streamlines rules on electronic signatures in order to provide secure electronic authentication systems,in addition to eliminating administrative barriers and provide appropriate tools to push consumers and businesses to make better use of the digital market.
    - The new legislation aims to revise the EU regulatory framework for the protection of data and intends to publish a code online that summarizes in a clear and accessible manner the rights of digital users. This code will also focus on the legislation on contracts and the settlement of disputes online at European level. It also places an EU trustmark on line to protect consumers.
    - The new laws increase the interoperability of devices, applications, databases, networks and services. For this purpose it is essential to review its policy on standardization, to promote efficiency and simplification.


    ENTERPRISES DIGITALIZATION


    In order to promote the digitization of business processes and technological modernization of micro,small,medium and big enterprises,of any economic sector, as well as the activities of the professions,the Digital Agenda establishing a specific instrument,within the Ministry of Economic Development,the Economy Digitalization Fund. This instrument,through funding,will take over 90% of total investment costs that the specific company must make to start actions of technological innovation and digitalization. The Fund will also provide substantial technical support,excellent tax breaks and useful administrative simplifications for businesses that undertake investment in ICT.

    The intervention provided by the Fund is designed to support,through contributions on purchasing of software,hardware or services enabling:
    a) improving business efficiency;
    b) the modernization of work, such as to promote the use of highly technological tools and forms of flexibility,including teleworking;
    c) the development of e-commerce;
    d) the broadband and ultra-wideband connectivity ;
    e) the connection to the Internet through satellite technology,through the purchase and activation of decoder and parables;
    f) qualified training of companies staff in the field of ICT.


    PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION DIGITALIZATION




    PUBLIC CONNECTIVITY SYSTEM


    The Public Connectivity System the set of technological infrastructure and technical regulations for the development,sharing,integration and dissemination of information assets and data of public administration,necessary to ensure interoperability of basic and advanced systems and application cooperation computer and information flows,ensuring security, the confidentiality of information,and the maintenance and the autonomy of the information assets of each public administration.

    Public Connectivity System is a "frame" of National Interoperability,defines, ie,the preferential mode that information systems of public administrations must take to be among them "interoperable". The aspects of interoperability are ensured by rules and,above all,by a set of interoperability services,cooperation and access that are part of the national infrastructure of System itself.

    The technical architecture of the System is made up of three different layers:
    - Connectivity infrastructure provides data transport services,wired and wireless,voice and VoIP security with guaranteed levels of functionality and quality;
    - services;
    - Interoperability (mail,housing and hosting,web sites, etc.);
    - Application cooperation enables the development and functioning of cooperating applications;
    - Applications cooperatives provide users (citizens and businesses) the final results of transverse processes.


    PUBLIC CLOUD COMPUTING SYSTEM


    The "Cloud computing" is a flexible and economical for the provision of ICT services. Through Internet-based technologies,allowing easier access to a set of configurable resources and shared (physical resources of network,storage and processing, services and end-use applications). This system allows to improve operational efficiency and, at the same time,to achieve significant economies of scale for IT costs.

    The innovative process that can be initiated through the use of the cloud model is particularly significant for the government. In addition to the benefits of a general nature,are easily conceivable strategic advantages related to the possibility of achieving both the modernization of infrastructure,both sharing systems,applications and databases.

    This is why the new regulations of the Digital Agenda provides that the entire apparatus of public administration,at national and local level,to create an advanced,interconnected and interoperable system of databases and cloud computing,to store and manage the administrative data,and to provide citizens and businesses a punctual and efficient service.


    DIGITAL IDENTITY FOR CITIZENS & ENTERPRISES


    The National Services Card  (NSC) is a tool for on-line identification that allows the use of government and public administration services,and will be provided to all European Citizens. The NSC does not contain the holder's photo and does not require special safety requirements for the plastic support. The complete computer correspondence between NSC and EIC (Electronic Identity Card) ensures interoperability between the two cards.

    The Digital Signature - electronic equivalent of traditional handwritten signatures on paper - is permanently associated to the electronic document to which it is affixed,and attested with certainty its integrity and authenticity. The digital signature is used to exchange documents on-line with full legal validity,and is fundamental to the management of administrative procedures digital. To this,according to new legislation,should provide their own digital signature all natural persons: citizens,administrators and employees of companies,public administrations.

    Current legislation provides for the creation of Unified Digital Document (UDD). It will be provided to all European citizens. This electronic document,which replaces the Identity Card and the Health Card,allows to equip all citizens of a valid tool for access to network services. The project involves the use of smart cards with a dual microprocessor,RF and contacts. The presence of the radio frequency (contactless) processors characterizes the UDD as an innovative and highly efficient instrument.


    NATIONAL DIGITAL REGISTER OF RESIDENT POPULATION


    The National Register of Population must occur according to new legislation,constituting a single reference. With the implementation of the Digital Register,there will be a single database updated in real time throughout the territory,interoperable, efficient and accessible at any time from all public administrations.

    As in implementing of the Digital Register particular attention is paid in respect of:
    - Safeguards and security measures to be taken in the processing of personal data;
    - How and when data retention and access to data by the government for its own purposes;
    - Criteria for interoperability of Digital Register with other databases of national and regional level,according to the technical rules of the Public Connectivity System,so that the information of registry,once made by the citizens,they intend acquired by public administration without the need for further requirements or duplication by the same;
    - provision of services made available by the Digital Register,including the service of electronic submission of certifications and declarations of birth and other documents.


    ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSES DIGITALIZATION




    ADMINISTRATIVE PROCESSES MANAGEMENT


    The digitization of administrative processes enables for public administration new ways of communication and interaction with citizens and businesses through the provision of services and the creation of a single point of access. The digital management of administrative processes, according to European Digital Agenda, then becomes mandatory. The administrative procedures focused on document management ensure the proper management of the entire lifecycle of documents from production to conservation. The document management systems make it possible to:
    a) Automate processes of classification,sorting and definition of metadata (information base and specific type of documents) - Digital Administrative Documents -
    b) Automate the recording process of incoming and outgoing documents and assignment to organizational units - Digital Streams of  documents and protocols -
    c) Dematerialise the processing of document flows both incoming and outgoing - Dematerialization -
    d) Support archiving of electronic documents and copies - Digital Conservation -


    ELECTRONIC PAYMENTS


    It was created to give the opportunity to citizens and businesses to make any payment to the government and the managers of public services electronically. Electronic payments are indeed mandatory between private companies or individuals and public administration,according to the new legislation. Electronic payments between private individuals or private companies,the common commercial transactions,are strongly supported.

    The system allows citizens and businesses to:
    - freely choose the provider of payment services (eg. bank,payment institution / electronic money);
    - choose from multiple payment instruments (eg. direct debit,credit card,postal electronic);
    - choose the preferred payment channel technology to perform the operation (eg. web account, ATM, mobile);
    - know in advance the maximum costs of the operation to be performed simultaneously and have the guarantee of the correctness of the amount to be paid;
    - immediately get a receipt with liberating value.

    The system allows the public administrations to:
    - speed up the collection of receipts,obtaining the results in real time and being able to maintain its reconciliation with certainty and automatic;
    - reduce costs and optimize the development time of new online applications,thanks to the use of reusable solutions and experiences;
    - eliminating the need to enter into specific agreements with service providers for the collection.


    STANDARD XBLR DOCUMENTS FORMAT


    The digitization of documents of companies (now mandatory), as consolidated financial statements and other documents to the business register,presupposes the adoption and use of standards and rules.
    Standard XBRL has been adopted to ensure
    - usability and movement of financial data, so that they are immediately readable and usable by all parties who have an interest;
    - significant advantages in terms of streamlining practices and automation of industrial processes.


    DIGITALIZATION OF JUSTICE


    Over the past years,judicial authorities have tried to implement a policy of rationalization,consolidation and integration of ICT systems,which allowed a reduction of project activities and the internalization of many management activities. The Digital Agenda for the justice digitalization focus on three main areas: Civil Justice, Criminal Justice and Infrastructures.

    a) Civil Justice
    The telematics services available to citizens and businesses regarding to Civil Justice are:
    - The consultation of digital registers of stationery and electronic documents included in the digital files of Judicial Authorities,avoiding physical access to the registry and then save a lot of time and staff.
    - The filing of documents,digitally signed,sealed in encrypted mails and transmitted through secure electronic channels
    - Digital communications of stationery allow the automatic sending of messages,also with decree of the judge attached by Judicial Authorities to lawyers,to expert witnesses and to the parties who are involved personally.
    - Electronic payments of court costs: the system allows lawyers to pay online contributions and administrative fees for the Civil trial,obtaining an electronic receipt,containing a unique code is not reusable and digitally signed,immediately verifiable

    In order to bring about a significant acceleration in the time of the Civil Justice,the Digital Agenda establishes the Electronic Civil Trial (ECT),completely digitizing all the various administrative processes,and equipping all judicial offices with necessary infrastructures and staff for the purpose. Between digital services,for exaple,there are: notifications and communications of stationery,injunctions,all the acts of the court.

    b) Criminal Justice
    Priority task under the field of criminal law is to improve the process from the investigative phase until the final judgment, ensuring a complete digitalization and the transfer of information between offices and making available to the operators of the right elements needed for decisions in times faster.

    The computer systems of justice are mainly web-based,interconnected,efficient,unified and homogeneous,with databases at national or district level. So there is a complete digitization of the judicial system,in which all the offices will be equipped with all the infrastructure and skills necessary for the purpose.


    DIGITALIZATION OF HEALTHCARE


    With "digital health" we intend those actions shared by all administrations operating at central,regional and local level: the digitization of the prescriptive cycle,the digitalization of all health administrative processes,the creation of a federated solution of Electronic Health Record (ESF) of the citizen,the increase of digital innovation rate in healthcare services. To get a complete digitization,all health administrations will be equipped with adequate electronic infrastructures,staff and technical skills.

    In particular,the Electronic Health Record (ESF) is the set of digital data and documents relating to health and social health generated by present and past clinical events,about the individual patient. Has a time horizon that covers the entire life of the patient and is fed continuously by those who take part in his care,within National Health Service and the regional health-social services. The ESF is made by health administrations for the purposes of prevention,diagnosis,treatment and rehabilitation pursued by health and social services that take care of the individual patient. The ESF thus operates as part of a national database interconnected with all health administrations.


    BROADBAND - ULTRA WIDEBAND NATIONAL NETWORK & TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION




    In the future,the economy will be a knowledge economy based on networks,which will revolve around the internet. Europe needs a fast and ultra fast internet access,in competitively priced and widely available. The European Digital Agenda has underlined the importance of broadband deployment to promote social inclusion and competitiveness in the nation,reiterating the goal of bringing new generation broadband across the nation,connecting all citizens and all enterprises  more than 100 mbps speed internet connection.

    To achieve these ambitious goals European Government will develop a comprehensive policy based on a combination of technologies and with two parallel goals. On the one hand,to guarantee universal coverage of broadband and ultra-wideband throughout the country (combining fixed and wireless connections,through an efficient combination of terrestrial and satellite infrastructures) with connection speeds increasing,taking 100 mbps as base speed. The connection must reach all citizens,all enterprises and all regions of Europe. The infrastructure will also have to be entirely based on next generation networks,to facilitate more and more faster connections,and have to be focused on a constant technological advancement.

    To realize an infrastructure of this size,is need a massive campaign of public investment (hundreds of billions),to be combined with a substantial private support. Most of the funding will come from the European Investment Bank (state-owned) and from government funds,under the coordination of the agencies of the Ministry of Infrastructures,Public Works and Transports,in full coordination with local authorities and communities; there are also huge investments by private banks and companies. The European Telecommunications Corporation (highly advanced and capable state-owned company) will be responsible for carrying out infrastructural and cabling works, supported by a wide cooperative of private companies,to small-medium sized to large ones. The Corporation will manage the entire infrastructural broadband and ultra-wideband network,so that it remains in the State hands,so as to ensure free competition between service providers (an efficient competition bring in fact competitive prices,the Internet then is no longer a luxury,rather it will be accessible to all). The benefits that will come from the implementation of this ambitious project will be huge,will cover every single sector of the economy,will advance enormously the level of technological development,and will bring the European power to a new high.

    Finally,the European Digital Agenda is pursuing a global strategy on research and innovation regarding ICT. On the basis of the European strategy,Europe will maximize (funds for research will be increased by tens of billions) ,accelerate,refocus and regroup investments to maintain and strengthen the global competitive advantage in this area,and will continue to invest greatly in high-risk and long-term research,including multi-disciplinary fundamental research. European Government will also strengthen its innovative advantage in key areas by strengthening the electronic infrastructure (e-Infrastructures) and developing in a targeted manner strategic innovation clusters in key areas. In this context,research projects will be focused on cooperation between public authorities,scientific bodies and economic operators,encouraging and sustaining the growth of technological and scientific knowledges,and their reconfiguration in the form of industrial innovation.
