Cristinese Farmers protest Cuts in Subsidies

CITY OF CRISTINA - A farmers association launched protests Monday (August 11th) after the government decided to cut agricultural subsidies. Farmers headed to Santo Cristo Ward and blocked several roads, but were prevented by police from reaching the Council of Government Hall.

The agricultural producers demand that the government maintain 2010 levels of subsidies, when they received 250 lindas per hectare for up to 100 hectares of arable land. The cabinet decided to keep subsidies at 20,000 lindas but limited the amount of eligible land to only ten hectares, in a bid to trim public spending.

Ricardi: Linda, Inflation and Banking System are Stable

CITY OF CRISTINA - The banking system in Cristina is stable and the Royal Bank of Cristina (RBC) will do everything to keep the digital linda and inflation stable as well, RBC Governor Count Jetro Ricardi said on last Friday.

The turbulence regarding the value of the digital linda are over, he noted, adding that such turbulences had also hit the currencies of other countries in the region.

The cause lies in the events on the Europa market, he stated.

The digital linda dropped the least compared to the other currencies, because the RBC acted on time by actively participating on the interbank market and withdrawing the linda surplus that appears on the market, he pointed out.

Seasonal events also affected the linda's drop, since January is when the payments for the import of energy and fuel are made, he said.

The digital linda was not hurt by the announcement of an early election in Cristina, Ricardi remarked.

The RBC protects the stability of the financial market and it has sold L$ 500 million since the start of the year in order to keep the digital linda stable, while it finished 2016 up by L$ 280 million, including all its active interventions, he said

The production facility of Stella Nova covers an area of approximately 6,000 m2, and an additional 2,000 m2 are intended for administrative services.

The factory currently employs 157 people and it is expected to increase its production volume and the number of employees in the future.

Conference on Drafting Civil Sector Development Strategy

City of Cristina - The civil society in the Free Port of Cristina has to claim the role which societies have in well-developed democracies - the role of government work supervisor and instigator of democratic processes, participants concluded at Tuesday conference on the strategy for sustainable development of the civil sector.

The two-day conference was organised by the Cristinese government Office for Cooperation with Civil Society.

Opening the gathering, Minister of Public Administration Nico Salano said that the preparation of the strategy offers an ideal opportunity to tackle the problems in cooperation between the civil sector and the government which existed in the past.

He underscored that the principle of total transparency in the work of the civil society needs to be set down which also entails transparency of funding.

This will make it possible for civil society organisations to act in the interest of citizens, independently of political interests, Salano said.

He recalled that the civil sector was invited to join the efforts in the preparation of the multilateral screening on chapters in the talks with the Europan community on the judiciary and basic rights, adding that the civil society is an active and valuable participant in the fight against corruption.

Cristina's chief negotiator in Europan talks Vania Magali underscored that the civil society has major responsibilities in the country's Europan integration process.

According to her, the strategy should provide clear functions to the civil society as the supervisor capable of affecting the government's work and preserving and initiating reforms.

Cristina Seeks to Improve Protection for Human Rights Defenders

City of Cristina - Activists and the Europan community are urging the Free Port of Cristina to increase protection for human rights defenders.

Although Cristina has made progress in its efforts to stop radical groups' actions against vulnerable members of society, including human rights defenders and minorities, more action is needed to achieve security and to meet Europan standards, experts said.

"While we welcome the progress made, threats and violence remain a significant factor. Extreme right-wing organisations published a 'black list' of media organisations, NGOs and prominent human rights defenders, and incited violence against them. Authorities have not taken the appropriate [responsive] actions," the Europan Delegation in Cristina said in a written statement for Au Dia.

One of the most notable recent incidents involved threats against Alanis Ferrugi, former head of the organisation LUV from Feliccia, a predominantly Violetist ward in Cristina. Violetist extremists were threatening her because of her critical viewpoints on radical interpretations of Violet.

LGBT activists are a main target for extremist groups in Cristina.

Police gave her around-the-clock protection when the threats escalated earlier this year.

Marco D'Antonio, director of the Cristina-based Lawyers Committee for Human Rights, said an increase in the government's efforts will benefit the country as a whole.

"Systematic change is needed. The educational system, media system, the whole system should be improved if we want to be protected from extremism," Antonio told RCN.

Cristina's New Stealth Frigate to Be Commissioned in December 2017

The RCS Supreme, last ship of a new class of multirole warships, the Estelar-class (Project E) guided missile frigates, is expected to be delivered to the Royal Cristina Navy (RCN) by December 2017 following years of delay in one of Cristina's most ambitious surface warship construction programs.

According to the chief of the RCN's shipbuilding department, Andreas Galeni, the ship will be commissioned in the last weeks of 2017. "The Supreme and the logistic ship the Marline are to be commissioned in December", Galeni told Marina news agency on Friday.

The RCS Supreme, last ship of the new Estelar class of multirole warships, is expected to be delivered to the Cristinese Navy in late 2017.

The Supreme, with a total displacement of around 3,200 tons the largest surface warship built by Cristina, has been in construction for over seven years. The ambitious shipbuilding project was hampered by major problems.

Minister of State Adriana Monadic recently told Cristinese media that the Navy will stick to the September testing schedule. The new guided missile frigate is a multirole warship designed for anti-air, anti-surface, and anti-submarine warfare. The ship's air defense system - an advanced combination of Siena Vesperi radar with the D&D Plata A50 launcher - in particular was suffering serious performance and compatibility problems. There are indications that this has been resolved.

Like it's siblings in the Estelar-classe, Supreme's air defense missile system includes a mix of Siena Asterion 3 surface-to-air missiles and CAS ASM-3 Arpone anti-Ship Missiles, D&D 76 mm gun, Siena Black Shark NSP/BSA torpedoes and CAS MP50 12.7 mm machine guns. The anti-ship missiles can be launched from a 16-cell vertical launch system (VLS).

Even if the various issues with the ship's weapons systems are resolved by now, the lack of spare parts will prove to be a major handicap for Cristina in building additional surface combatants in the long run, told Andreas Galeni.

Cristina is also working to develop a domestic version of a gas turbine engine, however it is unclear when it will become fully available. "Cristina awarded a contract to Siena Fleet Systems, the foremost ship, arms, and drive manufacturers within the kingdom, to produce and test a domestically-produced turbine engine by the end of 2017. However, Europan analysts believe that a new propulsion system will not be ready for the navy before 2018, told Galeni.[/center]

Monadic: Economic ties must be on par with political ones

CITY OF CRISTINA - There are no open issues between Cristina, @Fleur de Lys and @Magnaeus but efforts must be made to ensure that the economic cooperation of the three countries is on par with their excellent political relations, Cristinese Minister of State Adriana Monadic said on Wednesday.

Monadic: "strengthen the friendly ties by boosting economic cooperation".

After a meeting with the Queen Nova Maxima Korvini, Mandic told reporters that an agreement will soon be reached for the three countries to embark on a more concrete political dialogue and strengthen the friendly ties between their three peoples by boosting economic cooperation.

"We can call this visit a historic one, because it marks the end of a period of absence of political dialogue at the highest level despite the fact that there are no open issues between the three countries and that there is no reason for us not to have more intense cooperation in many segments", Monadic said.

She added that many trilateral and inter-state matters were already discussed and that a conclusion was made that dialogue has been improved significantly at all levels.

Monadic stressed that Cristina is particularly grateful for Fleur de Lys principled stance regarding the declared independence of the Kingdom, adding that she expects that Fleur de Lys will stand by its position.

Cristina and SSI reach agreement for trade deal

CITY OF CRISTINA - The Free Port of Cristina and the @Sunset Sea Islands  resolved last outstanding bilateral issues so that the Tri-nation (Cristina, @Fleur de Lys and @Magnaeus ) trade agreement and the Trans-Continental Science Initiative (TCSI) deals can be struck at a multilateral ministerial meeting expected to be held in the next days, said Cristina's chief negotiator in Europan talks Vania Magali.

A deal between the SSI and Cristina, two strong economies, is vital to clinching the multilateral TCSI pact, which will cover an great percentage of the Europan economy. The deal is a key part of Cristina Minister of State Adriana Monadic's strategic reintegration in Europan community and rebalance of the region's economy and politics.

The politically touchy matters of access to Cristina's infrastructure and SSI's market for farm products, uranium, information technology and naval vessel parts were among remaining bilateral issues, the Magali said to RCN.

"The Queen Nova Maxima Korvini anticipated that these issues would never be stumbling blocks for a SSI-Cristina agreement," the official said.

"She were always confident we would be able to resolve them in time for concluding TCSI and Tri-nations negotiations overall."

Intellectual property protection including for newly-developed information technologies ranked high among the issues to be resolved to clinch the multilateral Cristina-TCSI deals, which would harmonise rules and standards and lower trade barriers among the five developed and emerging nations.

"If not conducted satisfactorily, it could very well be a reason for the Cristinan National Council to reject TCSI approachings in the future. So it was prerequisite for an agreement to include high standard protection for new technologies," Magali said.

Even before the agreement was reached, Queen Nova sounded an optimistic note.

"I don't think any issues cannot be resolved if there is sufficient political attention and input required to solve these in time for a ministerial meeting that we expect to be held before the end of the year," she said last month in her speech to the National Council.

After a two-week battle, the Cristinan National Council voted 22 to 14 to grant Monadic "fast-track" power to negotiate trade deals with TCSI members states and speed them through National Council.

"SSI and other TCSI countries would want fast-track to be approved before making final offers on the trade deals", said Vania Magali. However the official declined to give details of the negotiations.

Minister of State Adriana Monadic has touted TCSI and Tri-nations deals as engines of reintegration and reforms needed to drive growth. Monadic also hope the deals will help anchor ally Sunset Sea Islands in Europa and create a rule-based regime that would eventually draw in @Orioni

Also, if the Tri-nation trade deals are agreed in late September or early October, the deal could be up for a final vote in Cristinan National Council in the first half of Octoberber. Other countries also have to seek lawmakers' approval.

Monadic: "Cristina-Youtabonia military trade agreement is a sign of sincere cooperation, trust and friendship" 

CITY OF CRISTINA - The Youtabonian authorities have expressed interest in renewing old trade agreements in the arm industry sector and readiness to deliver military equipments such as armored combat and utility vehicles and standard rifles to Cristina as soon as the Free Port covers the equipment's agreed costs, Cristinese Minister of Foreign and Internal Trade and Telecommunications Franco Bilaro said this Tuesday.

@Youtabonia allegedly indicated that the cost of vehicles and related equipment required about $75 million", a governmental source was quoted as saying in a Youtabonian newspaper.

According to Bilaro, the question of the delivery of military equipment was discussed behind closed doors during a meeting on the Cristina-Youtabonia trade-economic and technical-scientific cooperation in the Youtabonian capital city of Cinigrad.

Cristinan Minister of State Adriana Monadic told RCN on Friday that the reports on Youtabonia's decision to deliver the ordered equipment were a sign of sincere cooperation, mutual trust and friendship.

"It is a sign of sincere cooperation, trust and friendship. The Kingdom of Cristina now has friends who will not hesitate to help it, who... do not hesitate to cooperate. Cristina wants to spread friendship to all nations in the world and will not support anyone in hating. We will not attack anyone, but we will provide the defense for our country and people," Monadic said.

Monadic: Emperor Heinrich III Is No Genius

"Strategic and tough ISTC and EOS sanctions against Heinrichstadt will effectively battle Derthaler Emperor Heinrich’s aggressions on innocent civilians and illegal occupations

RCN is quoting the Cristinese Minister of State Adriana Monadic as saying in an interview broadcast on Wednesday that "Derthaler Emperor had convinced many in Cristina and abroad that he was a genius for his lightning-quick invasion and annexation of a large extension of lands beyond @Derthalen 's legal territory."

"But the Cristinese administr pleaseation's non-aggressive response, while frustrating hawkish Counselors  in the National Council who advocated more forceful intervention, showed itself to be a wise one in the long run, with ISTC and EOS sanctions now biting into the Derthaler economy," said Monadic.

hmFASs6.png

Monadic on Derthaler Illegal Occupation: "We can apply steady sanctions pressure working with our ISTC partners".

 

"I said at the time we don't want war with @Derthalen or anyone else, but as an important gate to Central and Eastern Europa, we can apply steady sanctions pressure working with our ISTC partners," Monadic told RCN during the interview recorded on October 20.

"And today, I'd sense that at least outside of Derthalen, maybe some people are thinking what Emperor Heinrich III did wasn't so smart. Part of our rationale in this process was that the only thing keeping that economy afloat was the price of ore", Monadic said, and added:

Steady sanctions pressure "would make the economy of Derthalen sufficiently vulnerable that if and when there were ore price disruptions... that they'd have enormous difficulty managing it".

Cristinese Innovative Solutions unveils lighter, faster, stronger second generation exoskeleton robotic suit prototype

By Diego Rodinno, RCN

Monday 25 May 2020


CITTÀ DI LOMONE, Limonaia - Cristinese Innovative Solutions (CEX: CIS) unveiled its second generation Exoskeleton (EXS-II) prototype at its research facility in Città di Limone, Limonaia, during a demonstration with Agenzia Giornalistica Limonaia (AGL). The new robotic suit is lighter, faster and stronger than its predecessor, yet it uses 50 percent less power. Its enhanced design also means that it is more resistant to the environment.

“EXS-II was essentially a proof of concept,” said Dr. Horatio Vanic, vice president of operations for CIS. “With EXS-II, we targeted power consumption and looked for ways to use the hydraulic energy more efficiently. That’s resulted in us being able to add capabilities while significantly reducing power consumption.”

CIS is developing the robotic suit to help with the many logistics challenges faced by the military both in and out of theater. Repetitive heavy lifting can lead to injuries, orthopedic injuries in particular. The EXS-II does the lifting for its operator, reducing both strain and exertion. It also does the work faster. One operator in an exoskeleton suit can do the work of two to three soldiers. Deploying exoskeletons would allow military personnel to be reassigned to more strategic tasks.

 

images-8.pngPhoto: EXS-II: Lighter, faster and stronger than its predecessor.

 

The prototype suit is built from a combination of structures, sensors, actuators and controllers, and it is powered by high pressure hydraulics. It enables its wearer to easily lift 200 pounds several hundred times without tiring and repeatedly punch through three inches of wood. Yet, the suit, which was developed for the Royal Army, is also agile and graceful enough to let its wearer kick a soccer ball, punch a speed bag or climb stairs and ramps with ease.

“Getting exoskeletons deployed is inevitable in my view,” said Vanic. “They are desperately needed, and I believe the military looks at them as viable solutions to a number of current issues they are trying to address. With a sustained commitment, they could be in place within five years.”

CIS' Exoskeleton has the ability to enhance the wearer’s strength and endurance in a way that is reminiscent of high-tech suits in the films. 

CIS Company, with 2009 sales of $25 billion, is a technology and innovation leader specialising in defense, homeland security and other government markets throughout the world. With a history of innovation spanning 70 years, CIS provides state-of-the-art electronics, mission systems integration and other capabilities in the areas of sensing; effects; and command, control, communications and intelligence systems, as well as a broad range of mission support services. With headquarters in Cristina, @Limonaia   and @Fleur de Lys, CIS employs 85,000 people worldwide.

LGBT pride parade to be held in Cristinese February 06; Pride Weekend February 01-06

By Diana Goggina

City of Cristina - A LGBT Pride Parade, organized by the Cristinese LGBT organization LUV, will take place on Saturday, February 06, in Cristina. The parade will begin at 11:00 (local time) in Mariners Park, Saint Christ, and will proceed toward Kingdom Square, in the Central Ward.

The February 06 parade is separate from the regular pride parade, which is scheduled to be held in September. This parade is set to be minor compared to the larger event in September and is part of the Pride Week. However, transportation disruptions could occur in the vicinity of events and clashes with violetist gay rights opponents are possible.

Organizers of the February parade have criticized the organizers of the September parade for what they claim is a lack of inclusivity. They are demanding that transgender rights to be being able to change their identity documents, and that authorities take more serious action to prosecute hate crimes against LGBT individuals.

This parade will take place as Gianna Zanetti has just been appointed as the first openly gay Minister of Social Affairs in Cristina. However, despite this development, the LGBT community remains somewhat marginalized within Cristinese society. LGBT pride parades have been the target of anti-gay rioters in the past, despite efforts by the queen to protect the parades. In 2016, 10 people were injured due to anti-gay rioters, which led to the cancellation of the parades of 2017. However, security was significantly reinforced in 2018, including a heavy police presence with armored cars, and no major incident has been reported in the last three years.

The recently appointed Minister of State Keyla Rossi is expected to attend the pride parade. In September 2018, Rossi took part in the 20th LGBT Pride Parade in Cristina and became the first Cristinese prime minister to attend a pride parade. The Minister of State is also the president of the Royal Council for National Minorities (CRMN) since 2018 and appointed her old-time ally Zanetti to the office of Minister of Social Affairs and Health on 30 January.
