  1. Good morning Doug. Are you moving back to your previous region? Because I noticed you posted https://www.nationstates.net/page=rmb/postid=35973658
  2. Good evening little girls and boys. This is uncle Bron Urgundy, and tonight we're talking about drugs. A MAN FROM @Shffahkia made a marvelously moronic mistake. When you do something which is not legal, you best keep it to yourself instead of notifying the police. That’s what a 26-year-old Edson Leopoldo learned when he called the emergency number to report stolen cocaine. And now he himself will be prosecuted before the court. Acting along the guidelines, the dispatcher sent a patrol car to the place of the event in order for the testimony to be recorded. At first the dispatcher was pretty sure it was a joke. But the policemen couldn’t believe their eyes when they saw the Edson waiting for them. Reportedly, the man had lost a bundle of approximately 500 grams of white powder. He then started listing the personal information of all his recent visitors and demanded a criminal intervention. To the policemen's surprise, Edson then said he was "too shaken by this situation" and needed a smoke. He then grabbed a bag from underneath his kitchen sink where he had stored an estimated 200 grams of marihuana. Mr Leopoldo seemed completely unaware of the fact he was worsening his own situation. He then proceeded to roll a joint... and offered to share it with the policemen writing down his testimony. "The whole situation was absolutely astonishing. We've become the laughingstock of our police precinct," says master sergeant Pedro Ferreira. "This case could have turned out easy for Mr Leopoldo because there was no cocaine present. However, the suspect decided to show us his large stash of hashish." Edson wrongfully thought that the law de-criminalising drug possession was already introduced instead of the discussion about it just starting. What’s more, the current discussion is aimed at legalising small amounts for personal use. Not the 200 grams found in suspect’s possession. The man is scheduled to appear before the court. Depending on the decision regarding the amount found at his house, the local judge will decided an appropriate penalty.
  3. Home | Orioni | World | Business | Tech | Science | Culture | Health | Sports Cussian Crisis: nations must not turn a blind eye, Rights groups say KARU, @Haruspex -- Human rights groups have called on Eurth's political leaders to rethink their approach to the Cussian refugee crisis that's unfolding in formerly @Beautancus territory under the control of Haruspex. The Christian issue, especially their repatriation from Cussia, is expected to be a major topic during the upcoming meeting among leaders of the Entente of Oriental States. Haruspex regards the Christian-majority Cussians as undocumented migrants from the Arhomaneian subcontinent and has confined tens of thousands to camps. Unknown numbers of Cussians have already crossed into Tagmatium, according to NGO observers, after violence and clashes by Haruspex's military security forces. Human rights activists say the bloc should not rush to get involved in the Cussian crisis without addressing the root causes of their displacement. "EOS needs to stop turning a blind eye to Haruspex's atrocities against the Cussians, and cease lending legitimacy to the repatriation process," Mrs Anna Hackney, the Orinese representative to EOS, said in a statement. Rights groups have also criticised an earlier EOS report for whitewashing the persecution of the majority-Christian minority by Haruspex. Rights groups say conditions in Cussian Northern Occidental territories are not conducive to the safe return of refugees. "EOS seems intent on discussing the future of the Cussians without condemning, or even acknowledging, the Haruspex military's ethnic cleansing campaign against them," said Mr Adam Brand, director of Mercy International. "It's preposterous for EOS leaders to even suggest the repatriation of a traumatised population into the hands of the security forces who killed, raped, and robbed them." Haruspex denies widespread wrongdoing and says the military campaign across hundreds of villages in the northern Cussian territory was in response to the attacks by terrorist fighters. Last week, reports of serious abuses emerged from the Karu Trainyard Refugee Center, where even refugees including many children are confined against their behind barbed wire without any legal basis or release date. It is unclear whether the young refugees will have access to lawyers, education or social services.

  5. Hello @PyeMcGowan and @Alenveil. Just checking in. Where are you with this RP story and expansion request?
  6. @Rihan I'm about to draw the reserved area of Enolia. (Reserved isn't the same as final.) I found this map in a topic by @Shffahkia. http://www.europans.com/topic/5204-expansion-idea-by-shffahkia/?do=findComment&comment=40013666 Is this correct, or do you prefer an alternate version?
  7. Seeing as @Selayar is pouring considerable effort into this reshuffling, I will label the area in question as reserved. This is similar to other areas on the map where players are actively writing their stories but haven't finished yet. It is only fair to clarify this, since it will help future co-players to see which areas will be come unavailable in the future.
  8. In this case I will begin to relabel the map area as reserved by MH until his storyline is complete.
  9. Everyone wants one. But how do you organise a naval blockade? An overview of the strategic thought of Alfred Thayer Mahan, a late-19th Century American naval strategist most famous for his advocacy of a big fleet and the idea of 'decisive battle'. This video shows that these 2 elements form only a part of Mahan's thinking, with the key element being the use of 'sea control' to strangle an enemy's economic power. This allows us to assess the value of 'Mahanian thinking' beyond WWI and WWII-era battleship obsessions.
  10. Home | Orioni | World | Business | Tech | Science | Culture | Health | Sports Top 10 cities in Orioni revealed SIRIUS -- What makes a good city great? Is it security, nightlife, infrastructure? In our annual Quality of Living Index, Roiters looks at everything from functional transport to the number of parks and the price of a good lunch. Continue reading to see which Orinese city ranks on top. 10. Global talent continues to arrive in Perseus, attracted by abundant nature, charming neighbourhoods and enviable work-life balance, encouraged by various government measures. 9. Cygnus has seen an economic boost in recent years. And aside from a dropping unemployment rate, the city itself is imbued with new energy. The enviable cultural agenda spans everything from art to music festivals. 8. Gruis' economy is flourishing. If the city is to retain its identity in the long term, its leaders will need to find creative solutions that balance the need for growth and the preservation of urban spaces. 7. Wider pavements, communal benches and complimentary phone-charging points in the metro are signalling Meda's efforts to make Orioni's oldest city more accommodating. 6. Nordhaven offers much more than the architectural beauty that it's praised for. With the deepening of the Uttura river to boost traffic to the port, it looks like the future is bright for this transport hub. 5. In O'polis, major urban planning and transport projects are ticking along. Yet tradition is writ large here. Centuries-old green parks and vineyards offer respite within city limits. And higher education is still nearly free, reflecting the capital's longstanding focus on intellectual pursuits. 4. As ever, Andro city boasts a young and vibrant population, attracted by the cities influential design industries, first-rate education facilities such as the Academy of Fine Arts, and a mouthwatering culinary scene. More affordable homes are needed to meet the rising demand. 3. There are many reasons why Dion is a great place to live in: incomes are high, prices are reasonable, and things work as they should. However, opportunities and spaces for artists, designers and creative entrepreneurs have been somewhat stifled due to the housing bubble. 2. Eat a bowl of linguini of try some dazzling multi-course spiedini. Shop at CostMart or buy a bespoke suit. Zuidhaven has always been a city for high and low. And the mix is still intoxicating. What surprises most of all though is that, for its size and pace, this is still a metropolis with a heart. 1. Sirius gives you the feeling that all is right with the Eurth. From its clean-swept streets to punctual transport. On a bright summer's day, you'd be forgiven for thinking you've landed in the Mediargic thanks to lively pavement cafés serving aperitif and people hopping into the lake for a midday swim between meetings.
