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.

    Have you also heared about the "Armenian genome project".

    I am in touch with the scientist who leads this projects, they unfortunately lack funds, we Armenians should support these kind of projects and modern-day hero's, instead of complaining all day about everything and doing nothing themselves... (as I have learned, the persons who complain the most, do the least).
    Yes i have heard of the gene studies and even referenced them in one of the threads here. It was interesting to find out that genetically western Armenians (most of the Armenian population which includes those who settled in eastern Armenia after the genocide) had more genes in common with the Turcks then with the Kharabghtsis. The most genetically isolated group of people was found in the georgian population. The genetic evidence suggests that the Kharabghtis have lived in isolation for a very long time.

      Russia to co-own new NPP in Armenia

      June 07, 2010 | 18:04

      Russia expects to become a co-owner of new NPPs in Armenia and Bulgaria, said Sergey Kiriyenko, Director General of the Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation.

      Kiriyenko noted that the company is applying new mechanisms, citing Turkey’s example. This is first time that Rosatom is to own an NPP in another country and operate it for 60 years. Talks with other countries, particularly Armenia and Bulgaria, are being held at the same level, Kiriyenko said.

      Rosatom is carrying out design work on the third energy unit of the Armenian NPP. In fact, Rosatom is to date the only company interested in constructing a new NPP in Armenia.
      ''Oh, we should stop this! Russia is taking over our nuclear power plant! We should OPPOSE Russia, alright, there won't be a new power plant because nobody else is interested to build it, so the economic growth and energy security will fall, it is not in our national interest, but what the heck''

            Invest $800K in Armenia and Postpone VAT Tax for 3 Years


            The government officials in Armenia today summarized the results of an
            anti crisis program, adopted a year ago, which allows companies to
            postpone Value Added Tax payments for 3 years if they invest more than
            800 thousand U.S. dollars in the Armenian Economy.

            The Deputy Economy Minister of Armenia Mr. Ara Petrosyan, speaking to
            journalists in the government headquarters today summarized the
            results of the tax incentive program and said in one year it has
            resulted in 51.5 million dollar investment and has created 740 jobs.
            These numbers may not impress from the first sight. Yet, considering
            Armenia's population is only 3.5 million, one cay say that the program
            has given serious results.

            The theme of today's meeting was "Investment Policy and New Job
            Openings" in Armenia. Petrosyan said giving this tax incentive to the
            companies is just one of the aspects of a comprehensive anti-crisis
            program that the government has in place to fight the financial
            crisis. The idea is to demonstrate strong commitment that the Armenian
            government supports and encourages foreign investments creating cost
            cutting incentives and helping the companies to lower their overheads.

            According to this program any company that makes investment in Armenia
            worth of 300 million drams will be illegible to postpone Value Added
            Taxes for three years. This amounts to $793,650 dollars. According to
            the current exchange rate 1 U.S. dollar equals to 378 Armenian drams.

            Petrosyan says eight companies have met this criteria in the past year
            and have been given the incentive. There have been number of other
            smaller investments in Armenia creating jobs. The above mentioned
            numbers of 51.5 million dollars only refer to the investments that
            have met the requirement of this tax incentive program.

            The foreign and local investments range from meat production to IP TV
            and from constructing the World's Longest Rope for tourism development
            near Tatev Monastery in Southern Armenia to planting grape wines for
            the development of wine production. The area of central Armenia has
            been known for its wines from the Biblical Times, when Noah descended
            from the mountain Ararat and made wines (Genesis 9:18-29).

            In the meanwhile today the Arka News agency reported that the GDP of
            Armenia grew 7.2 percent in the period of January to April of 2010.
            This growth is registered in comparison with the same period of 2009.
            In the CIS countries (Commonwealth of Independent States) this is the
            3rd highest GDP growth for the same period. The first and the second
            are Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan with 11.3 and 7.6 percent of GDP growth
            respectively.

            Armenia has Free Trade Agreements with number of countries and
            Most-Favored-Nation Trade Regimes with nearly 20 countries including
            the United States and the European Union, reports the Armenian
            Development Agency promoting trade and foreign investments in Armenia.

              Armenia’s international reserves 2nd largest in CIS
              June 10, 2010 | 10:30

              According to the rating by the RF Central Bank, Armenia ranks 22nd among the 67 states – and 2nd among the CIS member-countries - in terms of international reserves. The country’s gold and foreign currency reserves are sufficient for covering imports for eight months.

              China, Taiwan and Japan top the list. Specifically, China is able to pay for imports for more than two years. Among the CIS member-countries, Russia (4th in the list) has the largest international reserves, which are sufficient for paying for imports for 15 months.

                    We'll have to disagree on the "Forced by the New World Order" part. But I agree with you and have thought about for along time when it comes to the debt. I think an actual Armenian official also voiced his discontent with all this borrowing. Do people have any idea how much of Armenia foreign countries will own once the time comes for payment and Armenia can't pay off China, Russia, and other countries?

                    Hopefully(Though I doubt it given the lack of smarts in previous decisions), the authorities decide to put all this money to good use that makes good returns, so they can at least pay off these fracking loans.

                      Armenia and Iowa State (USA) to Cooperate in Energy Regulation



                      YEREVAN, June 15. /ARKA /. The Public Services Regulatory Commission (PSRC) of Armenia and the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB), signed a Memorandum of Understanding, designed to foster collaboration on energy regulation on Tuesday in Yerevan.
                      ]
                      The memorandum was signed within the programs of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners  (NARUC), with the support of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

                      "This new format of cooperation, which envisages the exchange of experiences and information among regulatory authorities of Armenia and Iowa, will contribute to improving the work of both departments," the Head of International Programs NARUC Chris Mahon said during the signing ceremony.

                      According to him, the U.S. has more than a century of experience in regulating the energy sector, and the agreement signed today will enable Armenia to learn from this experience, and the U.S. regulator, in its turn, can learn and apply the Armenian experience.

                      "Cooperation will promote and enhance the transparency of the regulatory bodies and improve their performance," the head of the Association added.

                      In his turn, Chairman of PSRC Robert Nazarian said that the Commission is working with American colleagues for 13 years, and similar documents on cooperation have been signed with the Washington State, Pennsylvania, and Kentucky.

                      "These agreements have been of great help to PSRC in effectively addressing the emerging issues. We study, analyse and apply the experience of the United States," said Nazarian.

                      Highlighting the effectiveness of previous cooperation with U.S. regulators, the chairman of the Commission expressed confidence that further partnerships will be lengthy—0--
