The only satirical newspaper suspends its publication

first_imgNews January 22, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 The only satirical newspaper suspends its publication RSF_en March 8, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa to go further News Created in February 2001, Addomari is known for its critics against the power. Already on 19 June 2001 the authorities had compelled the newspaper to suppress two pages in which he was criticising the government. In February 2001, the newspaper was circulating 60 000 copies. According to the information gathered by RSF, the satirical weekly newspaper Addomari suspended its publication on January 21 due to the conditions imposed by the authorities on its distribution. These latter have decided to compel a distribution via the state company to the newspaper which, up to now, secured its own distribution to subscribers and libraries. The state company claimed it would collect 40% on the sales takings and would distribute a number of copies lower than the regular circulation. Since the newspaper does not receive any subsidies, Ali Farzat, owner of the weekly, fears that this new distribution mode will entail heavy losses. Thus, on January 21, he decided not to distribute the last issue of his newspaper, which is usually issued on Mondays. He called on the ministry of Information, pointing out that the law on publications does not impose on private newspapers to be distributed through the State Company.

Isn’t it true that the Syrian law does not demand that private newspapers be distributed through that state company?” he added.

Report: Highest Percentage of Seriously Underwater Loans in Q3 Originated During Housing Boom

first_img in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Home / Daily Dose / Report: Highest Percentage of Seriously Underwater Loans in Q3 Originated During Housing Boom  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago The highest percentage of residential mortgage loans that were seriously underwater in this year’s third quarter were originated during the housing bubble between 2004 and 2008, according to RealtyTrac’s U.S. Home Equity & Underwater Report for Q3 2014.RealtyTrac reported that about 15 percent of all residential properties with a mortgage in the U.S. were seriously underwater in Q3, meaning the combined loan amount secured by the property is at least 25 percent higher than the property’s estimated market value. About 40 percent of the mortgage loans originated in 2006 were seriously underwater in Q3 2014, the highest percentage for any year after 2004, according to RealtyTrac.The number of Q3’s seriously underwater mortgages that were originated in the years following 2006 has declined steadily with each year before inching back up in the last two years. The percentage of seriously underwater mortgages in Q3 originated in 2007 was 35 percent; in 2008, it was 25 percent; and for every year, it declined until hitting a low of 7 percent in 2012. The percentage of mortgage loans originated in 2014 that were seriously underwater in Q3 was 10 percent.Meanwhile, the highest percentage of equity-rich homeowners, which are those with at least 50 percent equity in their properties, were those who bought or refinanced their homes between 1994 and 1998, according to RealtyTrac.The highest percentage of seriously underwater homeowners in Q3, according to RealtyTrac, were those that owned homes that were worth less than $200,000. About 55 percent of homes worth less than $50,000 were seriously underwater in Q3, while only 10 percent of homes in that price range were equity rich. About 34 percent of homes in the price range of $50,000 to $100,000 were seriously underwater, while 13 percent were equity rich.Homes worth more than $200,000 had lower percentages of seriously underwater homeowners and higher percentages of equity rich homeowners in Q3, according to RealtyTrac. For example, about 6 percent of homeowners with homes worth between $500,000 and $750,000 were seriously underwater, while 31 percent of homeowners with homes in that price range were equity rich.

This contract, when completely firmed-up, will represent the first foreign order for Dassault’s hi-tech super-fighter.The French Navy are strong supporters of the Air Day and the organisers are extremely pleased to welcome them back.  They are confident that the Rafale M’s outstanding performance will captivate each and every visitor to the show.Throughout the day there will be plenty of entertainment on the ground for all the family including side shows, educational interactive displays, funfair, vintage, classic and military vehicles, service demonstrations, military bands, picnic areas, helicopter pleasure flights, simulator rides, trade stands and much, much more.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, May 03, 2012; Image: royalnavy View post tag: UK View post tag: air Share this articlelast_img read more

New Papua New Guinea Pacific patrol boat completes trials

first_img View post tag: Papua New Guinean Navy Papua New Guinea Defence Force’s new Pacific patrol boat Ted Diro has completed sea trials, one week after its delivery.The boat passed the initial sea-readiness evaluation with support from the Australian Navy’s Sea Training Unit – Defence Cooperation Program.Commander Sea Training Defence Cooperation Program, Captain John Cowan, said Ted Diro’s ship’s company had been put through a comprehensive training program that culminated in a whole ship evaluation before sailing for Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea via Darwin.“The training has specifically focussed on mariner skills to ensure that the ship’s company can navigate their ship, operate the ship’s systems correctly, and can conduct all of the activities that the ship needs to safely complete the long voyage back to Papua New Guinea,” he said.Captain Cowan said the crew of Ted Diro had faced a number of challenges to get to this point.“Firstly, they had to come together as a crew in the Pacific Patrol Boat, the former HMPNGS Rabaul,” he said.“They honed their skills in Rabaul and then conducted the long voyage from Port Moresby to Port Macquarie, NSW for the disposal of the Pacific Patrol Boat.“The crew then travelled to Western Australia to conduct individual conversion training to prepare for the first of the Guardian class Patrol boats, Ted Diro.“Once they were proficient in operating the ship’s systems from an individual skills point of view, we commenced training with ship’s company to bring them together as a team performing to the standard and the program required by the PNG Defence Force.”Captain Cowan said the crew of Ted Diro had risen to the occasion and excelled in all areas of their training.HMPNGS Ted Diro during sea trials. Photo: AustalCommander Sebastian Marru, Commanding Officer of Lombrum Naval Base where the Patrol Boats will be based, said the partnership between Australia and PNG was an important part of PNG’s naval capabilities.“The relationship that we have with the Royal Australian Navy has allowed us to maintain a high standard over the years,” he said.“We have exercises such as PARADISE and KAKADU, as well as the permanent presence of Australian Defence technical staff to maintain and sustain our fleet, so the relationship between the two countries drives us in our operational capability.”Ted Diro is part of the Pacific Patrol Boat Replacement Project that will see 21 vessels gifted to 12 Pacific nations and Timor Leste.The ship was built at Austal’s Henderson shipyard in Western Australia and was named after former PNG soldier and politician Edward (Ted) Diro — Austal expects to deliver a new GCPB every four months until all 21 are rolled out.Ted Diro will commission in early 2019 and will be home-ported at Lombrum Naval Base, Manus Island.

JAZZ Is PHSH ‘Weigh’ In At The Aggie Theatre With Members of Snarky Puppy, Kung Fu, & More [Video]

first_imgBrothers Matthew and Adam Chase brought their JAZZ is PHSH tribute to the Aggie Theatre in Fort Collins, CO last night, joined by a stellar lineup consisting of Chris Bullock and Justin Stanton of Snarky Puppy,  Scott Flynn of ODESZA/Pretty Lights Live Band, Chris DeAngelis of Kung Fu, and Josh Thomas of With Lions. Talking Heads, reggae-infused tribute Talking Dreads opened up the evening.JAZZ is PHISH opened up with a funky “Tweezer,” followed by very lumpy-headed “Carini.” It took a good second for those in the crowd to recognize “Ghost,” as the band did a nice job of re-working various parts of the song. As the rest of the band left the stage for a couple of minute, Chris DeAngelis played an amazing “Split Open and Melt” bass solo, before the rest of the group rejoined him on stage for “NICU.”The uber-talented horn section of Bullock, Stanton, and Flynn shined throughout the night, especially on numbers like “46 Days,” “Bathtub Gin,” and “First Tube.” And Josh Thomas has proven to be an asset to the JAZZ is PHSH lineup, showcasing some serious skills on the keys. The group encored with a short, but sweet, “Cars Trucks Buses” before leaving the stage for the final time.Matt and Adam Chase have created a truly unique Phish-inspired project, which continues to get better and better as time passes.

12 Days Of Phishmas 2018: Trey & Mike Try To Explain Phish To MTV On H.O.R.D.E. Tour In 1992 [Watch]

first_imgIt’s that time of year again… In five days, Phish will return to New York’s Madison Square Garden for their annual four-night New Year’s run. Each year, we like to celebrate the season in the days leading up to Phish at MSG with the 12 Days of Phishmas, a daily series that gives you your Phish fix and helps stoke your excitement in the days leading up to the run. In 2016, we took you back to 12 historic Phish performances at The Garden. In 2017, with the Baker’s Dozen barely out of sight in the rearview, we relived the magic and mystery of the band’s historic residency.For years, we’ve been earmarking some of our favorite Phish interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, and other cool content that we haven’t found the right occasion to share with you…until now. For 2018, we’ve made you a very special Phishmas Advent calendar to help spice up your countdown to showtime. As we approach the start of the run on the 28th, we’ll open up one panel a day and reveal a fun surprise inside—a little something sweet and Phishy once a day until the Garden party begins. No peeking! By the time we’re finished with the calendar, it will finally be time for the gift we’ve all been waiting for: Four nights of Phish on their home court at the World’s Most Famous Arena.5 Days Til Phish – Trey & Mike Talk To MTV On H.O.R.D.E. Tour In 1992On the eighth day of Phishmas… Trey and Mike chat with MTV during the inaugural 1992 H.O.R.D.E. Tour. This is a classic Phish interview, and one that you’ve probably seen if you’ve done even a cursory search for Phish interviews online. Nonetheless, it’s one of our favorites, and gives a fascinating look at an important time of growth for the band.H.O.R.D.E.—an acronym for “Horizons of Rock Developing Everywhere”—was a big step not just for Phish, but for the larger burgeoning “jam scene” in the early 90s. The five bands on that first running of the H.O.R.D.E. tour (Phish, Blues Traveler, Spin Doctors, Widespread Panic, and The Aquarium Rescue Unit) were all on the rise, making a living touring the country playing clubs and theaters. By coming together for one big tour, they were able to combine each others’ audiences and play to amphitheaters around the country. This led to greater exposure, which in turn helped them become the nationally touring behemoth they are today.As was the theme of the entire tour, when Trey and Mike sat down with MTV that summer, they knew they were getting a chance to make an impression on a newer, broader group of potential new fans. They still had something to prove. Aware of the stakes of this higher-profile tour and interview, Mike and Trey played it relatively straight, making the case for their unusual brand of success and their unusual group of “obsessed” fans. However, they still took some opportunities to let their prankster personalities show through. It makes for a highly entertaining segment for Phish fans looking back—especially since many of the points they make sound not-so-oddly similar to the cases you’ve probably made for the band to your non-Phish friends at one point or another.Of course, the most amusing aspect of the segment is the physical gag Trey and Mike repeat throughout the conversation. As if they had set out some secret code or trigger ahead of time, on a few occasions throughout the interview, the two make eye contact and proceed to take a sip from their beer and cross their legs in unison—a little layer of token Phish strangeness on top of an earnest, uninitiated conversation.In the interview, they talk about how the band got to this point (“leaving a trail of ‘improved’ hotel rooms across the country for nine years”), what the band’s sound is (Trey: “To me, it’s a mixture of loud… and soft;” Mike: “It’s a cross between rock, jazz, funk, latin, Broadway, and bluegrass), and whether it’s been hard for them to find an audience that’s willing to listen to such variety.“It’s never been hard for us, and that’s the interesting thing,” Trey notes. “Our whole career has been based on live playing. We started in Burlington, and by word of mouth from our live shows, we worked up to a point where we were touring the whole country, supporting ourselves and five crew members…without any record selling at all. So that answers your question. It hasn’t been hard at all, in a live sense.”That’s the connection Trey draws between the five bands on the tour, who he agrees sound nothing alike but acknowledges are connected by that simple common thread. On Blues Traveler, he explains, “A lot of the people who were coming to see us were coming to see them, and there was something going on that was connecting the two bands.” While, by all accounts, the music itself was different among the acts, “there was definitely some kind of connection. The Spin Doctors, we had never even met before the H.O.R.D.E. But still, people were writing articles about [those] three bands: Blues Traveler, Phish, and The Spin Doctors, like it was some kind of…” “Scene,” Mike finishes for him. “Scene,” Trey repeats in agreement. Swig the beer. Cross the legs.They go on to talk about how they reach fans without albums and videos, from word of mouth to their “pretty big” 17,000-person mailing list to this new-fangled thing called the Internet. “Some of our fans have set up this thing called the Phish Net. A computer network. International computer network,” Trey explains with excitement. “Anyone who has a computer can access it.” Remember, it is 1992…They also discuss the taper culture that had helped the band gain a following, and how it keeps them on their toes creatively. “Bootlegging tapes has been what made us what we are.” “Who we am,” Mike chimes in. “Who we am,” Trey agrees. Swig beer. Cross legs.Night after night, Phish creates “genuine,” never-before-heard music together onstage, and that’s what makes seeing them live so special. As Mike notes, “I talk to people and they talk about this emotion they get when they’re here…and it’s really something they can’t get anywhere else. … It’s not something that would be accessible to the mainstream first-time listener, necessarily. But for the people that come, the music, and everything else that goes on onstage and in the crowd…it’s this different sort of feeling and it’s unique to this experience, so they keep coming back.”Toward the end of the segment, the interviewer asks if they can see themselves still touring together in 20 years. Both Trey and Mike optimistically affirm the question. “I hope so,” Trey says. “We get along very well for a band that’s been playing for nine years. For me, things don’t really feel any different now than they did 9 years ago. The experience of going onstage and having a great musical experience is the excitement of the band. And I don’t care if tonight there were 12,000 people, and 9 years ago there was two. I’m telling you, it really doesn’t feel any different to me. If we play well, it’s exciting. If we don’t play well, it’s frustrating.”“All in all, it’s an incredible job,” Mike notes. “To be able to travel around and go to some new city that we’ve never played in and jam and play music that we’ve never heard before because it’s all spontaneous to that moment, and have some people be blown away by it, or something. So if we could be doing that in 20 years, then I’d like to be doing it.”There have surely been some ups and downs in the 20 some odd years since they stated those intentions, but here we are in 2018, and Phish is going strong. We couldn’t be happier that their wish came true. Swig beer. Cross legs.Watch the interview below:Trey Anastasio & Mike Gordon H.O.R.D.E.
