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.

      Armenia posts 2.2% economy growth in Q1 - statistics


      YEREVAN, May 29. /ARKA/. Armenia posted a 2.2% economic growth in the first quarter of this year.

      According to the preliminary information from the National Statistical Service, the country’s GDP amounted to 873.6 billion drams or about $1.83 billion (the Q1 2015 exchange rate was 477.26 drams per $1).

      According to the statistics, the economic growth level was recorded due to 2% industry growth, 4.5% growth seen in agriculture and 3.9% growth in services sector. Construction growth rate was 0.8% in the first quarter.

      The budgeted levels were 4.1% for GDP growth and 4% (±1.5%) for inflation for the first quarter of 2015. The Central Bank of Armenia made an upward revision of its economy growth forecast for 2015 to 2.1-2.5%. Yet, many international financial organizations lowered their projections of the Armenian GDP growth.

      Many international organizations have recently lowered their economic projections of Armenia’s GDP growth for 2015. In particular, the World Bank says it is 0.8%, EDB’s forecast is 1.6%, ADB’s projection is 1.6%. The IMF expects the Armenian economy to decline by 1% and the EBRD projects a 1.5% decline.

      Fitch Agency said in its last review a moderate recession was expected in Armenia in 2015 due to the worsening in Russia. According to Moody’s, Armenian economy will grow by 2.3%. ($1- 479.3 drams).

        wines.

        is a considerable achievement for presenting Armenia to tourists.

            Police halt production of counterfeit shoes and bags

            YEREVAN, June 5. / ARKA /. An Armenian police unit in charge of combating organized crime has halted the operation of an illegal workshop in Yerevan that was producing counterfeit footwear and leather goods of famous world brands.

            According to a police statement, they found counterfeit branded shoes and leather bags marked ‘Brioni" Stefano Ricci,"" Zili" and others in a trade center pavilion in Yerevan owned by Carlo Comberzi LLC and in an illegally running workshop at Tychina street.

            Overall, the police found 103 pairs of shoes and three leather jackets in the pavilion owned by a Vagharshak Muradyan. It turned out that he set up production in August 2013 without the permission of trademarks rights holders.

            He neither ran books to record the commercial activity. The damage was assessed to be 12 million drams (about $26,000). -0-

            http://arka.am/en/news/business/poli....6dZpY9Uc.dpuf

            What is the point of this? China has in part built its economy on the sales of fake jerseys, electronics, shoes, etc. All it does is take away employment opportunities from ordinary citizens. I assuming it was done due to international pressure

              Because china uses theft to lift itself up, doesn't make that path right or honorable.
              We, as a nation and people's need to conduct ourselves decently and not let the corrupt lead us.
              The door to creativity is wide open. We could employ those people using our own design/imagination. To copy someone else is the easy path and the wrong path.

                  ENTIRE TOUMANYAN HOUSE IN TBILISI HANDED OVER TO ARMENIAN DIOCESE

                  16:24, June 9, 2015

                  The Tbilisi house where Armenian poet and writer Hovhannes Toumanyan
                  lived from 1909 to 1923 has been handed over to the Armenian Apostolic
                  Church Diocese of Georgia.

                  Four of the six rooms at Amaghleba Street (formerly Davitashvili)
                  had been turned into a library and were purchased in 2012 by former
                  Gyumri mayor Vardan Ghoukasyan from a Georgian citizen. The other
                  two rooms had been in the possession of Toumanyan's heirs.

                  On June 8 Edvard Militonyan, President of Armenia's Union of Writers,
                  led a delegation to Tbilisi for the handing over ceremony.

                  The delegation was joined by Bishop Vazgen Mirzakhanyan, Primate of
                  the Diocese of Georgia; Karen Melikyan, Advisor to the RA Embassy
                  in Georgia; and Maghvala Gonashvili, President of Georgia's Union
                  of Writers.

                  Militonyan ceremoniously handed the keys of the entire six rooms to
                  Bishop Mirzakhanyan.

                  The new cultural and art center will house book readings and
                  discussions, and other cultural events related to Armenian and
                  Georgian affairs.

                  One of the rooms will bear the name of Levon Ananyan, the late former
                  president of Armenia's Union of Writers, who worked so tirelessly to
                  obtain the library section of the house.

                    Normally I would agree, but just like the cigarette discussion with Haykakan, Armenia simply cannot afford to worry about such high standard of morality, specially when it comes to greedy multibillion dollar corporations with wide profit margins. Armenia is in a constant state of existential crisis, and you cannot build a sustainable nation in that condition. The biggest contribution to that crisis is the economy, and the lack of manufacturing jobs for ordinary people. That is what this provides. Every time I buy a $100 soccer jersey for $25 on Ebay from someone in China or Thailand, my first thought is why can't we set this up in Armenia? countless people have found jobs in low and middle income countries across the globe with this model, I don't see why it shouldn't exist in Armenia.
