Forum Rules (Everyone Must Read!!!)

1] What you CAN NOT post.

You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use this forum to post any material which is:
- abusive
- vulgar
- hateful
- harassing
- personal attacks
- obscene

You also may not:
- post images that are too large (max is 500*500px)
- post any copyrighted material unless the copyright is owned by you or cited properly.
- post in UPPER CASE, which is considered yelling
- post messages which insult the Armenians, Armenian culture, traditions, etc
- post racist or other intentionally insensitive material that insults or attacks another culture (including Turks)

The Ankap thread is excluded from the strict rules because that place is more relaxed and you can vent and engage in light insults and humor. Notice it's not a blank ticket, but just a place to vent. If you go into the Ankap thread, you enter at your own risk of being clowned on.
What you PROBABLY SHOULD NOT post...
Do not post information that you will regret putting out in public. This site comes up on Google, is cached, and all of that, so be aware of that as you post. Do not ask the staff to go through and delete things that you regret making available on the web for all to see because we will not do it. Think before you post!


2] Use descriptive subject lines & research your post. This means use the SEARCH.

This reduces the chances of double-posting and it also makes it easier for people to see what they do/don't want to read. Using the search function will identify existing threads on the topic so we do not have multiple threads on the same topic.

3] Keep the focus.

Each forum has a focus on a certain topic. Questions outside the scope of a certain forum will either be moved to the appropriate forum, closed, or simply be deleted. Please post your topic in the most appropriate forum. Users that keep doing this will be warned, then banned.

4] Behave as you would in a public location.

This forum is no different than a public place. Behave yourself and act like a decent human being (i.e. be respectful). If you're unable to do so, you're not welcome here and will be made to leave.

5] Respect the authority of moderators/admins.

Public discussions of moderator/admin actions are not allowed on the forum. It is also prohibited to protest moderator actions in titles, avatars, and signatures. If you don't like something that a moderator did, PM or email the moderator and try your best to resolve the problem or difference in private.

6] Promotion of sites or products is not permitted.

Advertisements are not allowed in this venue. No blatant advertising or solicitations of or for business is prohibited.
This includes, but not limited to, personal resumes and links to products or
services with which the poster is affiliated, whether or not a fee is charged
for the product or service. Spamming, in which a user posts the same message repeatedly, is also prohibited.

7] We retain the right to remove any posts and/or Members for any reason, without prior notice.


- PLEASE READ -

Members are welcome to read posts and though we encourage your active participation in the forum, it is not required. If you do participate by posting, however, we expect that on the whole you contribute something to the forum. This means that the bulk of your posts should not be in "fun" threads (e.g. Ankap, Keep & Kill, This or That, etc.). Further, while occasionally it is appropriate to simply voice your agreement or approval, not all of your posts should be of this variety: "LOL Member213!" "I agree."
If it is evident that a member is simply posting for the sake of posting, they will be removed.


8] These Rules & Guidelines may be amended at any time. (last update September 17, 2009)

If you believe an individual is repeatedly breaking the rules, please report to admin/moderator.

      Largest public beach on lake Sevan to open next year


      YEREVAN, October 2. / ARKA /. The Armenian government decided Thursday to allocate 9 hectares of lakeside area at the mountain Lake Sevan for the biggest public beach, deputy nature protection minister Simon Papyan said to reporters after a regular cabinet session.

      According to the deputy minister, there are already 11 public beaches on Lake Sevan with a total area of 32.5 hectares.

      "The new public beach will be 9 hectares and it will be the largest public beach in the country," said Papyan.

      According to him, the new beach with a full package of services will be located near the railway station next to the village of Tsovagyugh.

      According to the nature protection ministry, public beaches on Lake Sevan can accommodate more than two thousand people daily. In 2013 these beaches were used by 150,000 people, up from 100,000 in 2010.

      Lake Sevan is the largest lake in Armenia and the Caucasus region and is one of the largest fresh-water high-altitude lakes in the world. The lake is situated in the central part of Armenia, inside the Gegharkunik province, at the altitude of 1,900m above sea level.

      The total surface area of its basin is about 5,000 km2, the lake itself is 940 km2, and the volume is 34.0 bln cubic metres. It is fed by 28 rivers and streams. -

        French Development Agency to provide Armenia with 75 million euro loan for rehabilitation of Vedi water reservoir

        YEREVAN, November 26. /ARKA/. The Armenian government on Thursday approved the signing of a 75 million euro loan agreement with the French Development Agency that will be used to rehabilitate the Vedi reservoir.

        Finance minister Gagik Khachatryan said the loan is to be repaid within 20 years. It is provided with a six-year grace period and at an interest rate that can not be higher than 6.25% and less than 0.25%.

        He said the project when completed will alleviate the problem of water shortage in the Ararat Valley and allow the transition from mechanical to the gravity irrigation system, which, in turn, will result in saving of electricity.

        Prime minister Hovik Abrahamyan said the government included the rehabilitation and construction of water reservoirs in the list of its priorities. He ordered all relevant bodies to ensure that the rehabilitation of Vedi reservoir start in January or February next year.-0-

          Hope everyone is able to contribute something to the All-Armenian Fund Annual Telethon going on today.
          You can donate online by going to

          https://armeniafund.ejoinme.org/donate

          and you can watch the telethon live at http://www.armeniafund.org/webcast.php

          This year's fundraiser will be going towards providing fully furnished homes to Artsakh families with five or more children, in a bid to improve the demographic situation in the region. Over the past 20 years the main projects undertaken by the All Armenian Fund have the been the Goris-Stepanakert and Vardenis-Mardakert highways which are the only ways to reach Artsakh, and the North-South Artsakh highway which is the main road travelling through Artsakh once you do get there. Additionally, key projects have included developing water and gas distribution systems in the outer regions of Artsakh, as well as building/renovating schools/hospitals/roads etc throughout all of Armenia and Artsakh. Now despite the fact that this is the most transparent and efficient Armenian organization to which you can contribute to, where dozens of independent audits have been performed, there are lies and foolish stories propagated that aim to hurt the work of this organization. Below is a nice response to that in case you had any second thoughts about donating.

              CONSTRUCTION OF RADIOISOTOPE PRODUCTION CENTER IN ARMENIA COMING TO END

              YEREVAN, December 1. /ARKA/. Construction of a radioisotope production
              center in Armenia is already coming to an end, the press office of
              the Armenian health ministry reported on Monday.

              The centre construction is the first stage of the establishment of
              a center of excellence in oncology.

              Armen Muradyan, the Armenian health minister, visited the center on
              Monday to see the job done there.

              Now additional equipment is being assembled. In March 2015, CYCLONE
              18/18 cyclotron accelerator made by Belgium's IBA Molecular was
              installed in the center. It will be possible to carry out positron
              emission tomography in the center.

              The second stage of development of the project description of the
              radiation treatment branch is under way now.

              In 2009, the Armenian government decided to order establishment of a
              nuclear medicine oncology center affiliated to the Yerevan Institute
              of Physics. The center is run by Belgium's Global Medical Solutions.

              The centre will consist of three high-tech sections - a laboratory
              equipped by cyclotron for synthesis of radioisotopes, a diagnostic
              center of positron emission tomography that makes early detection
              of tumors possible and a clinic where patients will be treated by
              radioisotopes. ---0---

                  PREHISTORIC ROCK PAINTINGS DISCOVERED CLOSE TO THE ANCIENT ARMENIAN CITY OF ANI

                  16:35, 10 Dec 2015
                  Siranush Ghazanchyan

                  Fifteen rock paintings discovered in a village close to the ancient
                  city of Ani in Kars will play a significant role for the area to be
                  declared a world heritage site by UNESCO.

                  The head of the Culture and Arts Association in the eastern province of
                  Kars, Vedat Akcayöz, has said the registration of 15 rock paintings
                  discovered around the Alem village, some 11 kilometers away from the
                  ancient city of Ani on the Turkish-Armenian border, has been sent to
                  the Museum Directorate, adding the hope was to have the entire area
                  added to UNESCO's World Heritage list, the Hurriyet Daily News reports.

                  Akcayöz said the 15 rock paintings carved on the rocks depicted
                  hunting scenes with horses, dogs, mountain goats, deer and humans.

                  He said that upon their application, Kars Museum Director Necmettin
                  Alp, Culture and Tourism Provincial Director Hakan Dogancay and Board
                  of Protection of Cultural Property Director Yasin Dursun had begun
                  works to register the Prehistoric-era rock paintings.

                  Akcayöz said they had asked for the region to be declared an
                  archaeological site, adding they hoped the ancient city of Ani and
                  its environment would be included in the UNESCO World Heritage list
                  in 2016.

                  Stating that the association had been supporting Kars' culture and
                  arts for 15 years, Akcayöz said the following:

                  "2016 will be a very important year for the future of Ani, Kars and
                  Turkish tourism. The Alem village is home to 15 rock paintings that
                  have never been examined and belong to humanity. The importance of
                  this discovery is that Ani and its environment dates back thousands
                  of years older than we had known. Therefore the inns, rock tombs
                  and settlements around the ancient city of Ani should be declared an
                  archaeological site as a whole. Works have started in the rock tombs.

                  On Nov. 24, a committee including the museum director, archaeologist
                  and art historians coordinated to collect the data for registration.

                  These rock paintings will play a significant role for the ruins of
                  Ani to be included in the UNESCO list in 2016."

                  The ancient Ani was once the capital of a medieval Armenian kingdom
                  that covered much of present-day Armenia and eastern Turkey. Ani is
                  protected on its eastern side by a ravine formed by the Akhurian River
                  and on its western side by the Bostanlar or Tzaghkotzadzor Valley. The
                  Akhurian is a branch of the Aras River and forms part of the current
                  border between Turkey and Armenia.
