سلاح‌هایی که آمریکا به شورشیان سوری داد، در بازار سیاه به فروش رفت
سلاح‌هایی که سازمان «سیا»ی آمریکا و عربستان برای کمک به شورشیان سوریه به اردن فرستاده بودند به دست مامورین اطلاعاتی اردن دزیده شده و به دلالان اسلحه در بازار سیاه فروخته شده‌اند. این مطلبی است که برخی مقامات آمریکایی و اردنی در گفتگو با «نیویورک تایمز» برملا کرده‌اند. تحقیقات مشترک «نیویورک تایمز» و «الجزیره» نشان می‌دهد که بعضی از این سلاح‌های مسروقه در تیراندازی ماه نوامبر که در جریان آن دو آمریکایی و سه شهروند دیگر در یک مرکز تعلیم پلیس در امان کشته شدند مورد استفاده قرار گرفتند. در آن واقعه، یک نیروی اردنی، دو پیمانکار امنیتی دولت آمریکا، یک تعلیم‌دهنده اهل آفریقای جنوبی و دو شهروند اردنی را در یک مرکز تعلیم پلیس که با هزینه آمریکا در نزدیکی امان به پا شده بود کشت. خود او هم در کشمکشی که پیش آمد کشته شد. مرکز مذکور در پی حمله آمریکا به عراق در سال ۲۰۰۳ در حومه پایتخت اردن برپا شد و هدفش بازسازی نیروهای امنیتی این پادشاهی نزدیک به آمریکا و در ضمن تعلیم نیروهای پلیس برای تشکیلات خودگردان فلسطین بود. سلاح‌های مورد استفاده در تیراندازی در اصل برای تعلیم شورشیان سوریه به اردن رسیده بودند. این سرقت سلاح‌ها که باعث سیل ورود سلاح‌های جدید به بازار سیاه اسلحه شد، چند ماه پیش، پس از شکایات واشنگتن و ریاض، خاتمه یافت. این نیروهای اردنی بودند که با مشارکت در این عملیات موفق به کسب مقادیر عظیمی پول شدند که، به گفته مقاماتی که با «نیویورک تایمز» صحبت کرده‌اند با آن آیفون، ماشین‌های اسپورت و سایر اقلام لوکس خریداری کردند. سازمان «سیا» هنوز واکنشی به این خبر نشان نداده.

شمار قربانیان حمله روسیه با بمب فسفر درسوریه به 70 نفر رسید
سازمان اخوان المسلمین در سوریه اعلام کرد: جامعه بین المللی در مقابل حمله روسیه با بمب فسفر و خلاء در سوریه که موجب مرگ 70 نفر شد٬ هیچ واکنشی نشان نداده است. این سازمان در اطلاعیه ای، با اشاره به حملات سابق روسیه با بمب‌های خلاء و خوشه‌ای به استان های حلب و ادلب در سوریه، تصریح کرد: استفاده روسیه ازنوع بمب های فسفری در سوریه بر خلاف مقررات بین المللی است و بر اساس کنوانسیون سلاح های متعارف که در سال 1980 منعقد شده است، جرم محسوب می شود اما روسیه قوانین بین المللی را نقض می کند و انواع جنایات را مرتکب می شود. اخوان المسلمین همچنین جامعه بین المللی وعربی را به دلیل سکوت در قبال چنین قتل عامی متهم کرد. بنا به اعلام مسئولان بیمارستانی در نزدیکی استان دیرالزور سوریه٬ در پی حمله روسیه با بمب های فسفر وخلاء به شهرستان القریه، 64 نفر کشته شده بودند.

معرفی, نقد و بررسی فصل بیست و سوم تخت گاز Top Gear- Season 23
شاید نیازی نباشد که اطلاعات اولیه‌ای درباره‌یکی از قدیمی‌ترین و موفق‌ترین سری‌های ساخته‌شده در بنگاه سخن‌پراکنی بی‌بی‌سی BBC بدهیم، چون بی‌تردید بسیاری از علاقه‌مندان به ماشین این‌ها را می‌دانند اما به‌هرحال اجازه دهید که در شروع این نوشته کمی برای آنان که کمتر درباره‌ی آن خوانده و شنیده‌اند، بنویسیم. یک برنامه‌ی کوچک و گمنام درباره ماشین و وسایل نقلیه که در سال 1977 در شبکه بی‌بی‌سی شروع به پخش شده بود با وارد شدن یک عشق ماشین به نام جرمی کلارکسون jeremy clarkson به‌مرور و بعد از گذشت 27 سال از حضور وی تبدیل به یک ابر سریال تلویزیونی معروف در دنیا گشت. این انگلیسی 56 ساله با استفاده از تجربیاتش در نویسندگی، اطلاعات و شوقش درباره ماشین، استعدادش در شوخ‌طبعی، صراحت در نظر و بالاخره کار کردن با بنگاهی که در همه‌ی کشورهای دنیا (BBC) نفوذ گسترده و تاریخی دارد توانست تبدیل به یکی از معروف‌ترین مجریان برنامه‌های تلویزیونی شود. همچنین او توانست بعد از سال 2002 به همراه دو مجری دیگر تخت گاز، ریچارد هموند Richard Hammond و جیمز می James May، کارگردانان و سایر عوامل این سریال و همچنین سیاست‌پردازی خوب تهیه‌کنندگان، این سریال تلویزیونی را به یکی از سرگرم‌کننده‌ترین و پرطرفدارترین برنامه‌هایی که تابه‌حال از تلویزیون در خیلی از کشورهای دنیا پخش شده، تبدیل کند. ایرانیان خصوصاً دوستداران ماشین (البته آنهاییکه ماهواره و یا اینترنت پرسرعت در اختیار دارند) 1در سال‌های اخیر با تخت گاز آشنا شده‌اند. این برنامه در کانال تصویری بی‌بی‌سی فارسی دوبله و البته با تأخیر پخش شده است. صداگذاری روی قسمت‌های این سریال خیلی خوب، گوش‌نواز و حرفه‌ای از کار درآمده است. تمامی صداها اگرچه بر روی کاراکترها به‌خوبی می‌نشینند اما به هرحال بار طنز سریال را به دلیل ماهیت صداهای انتخاب شده مضاعف کرده‌اند. اگر شما نسخه‌های زبان‌اصلی را ببینید و گوش کنید آن را تا این اندازه خنده‌دار نمی‌یابید. بار کمیک این سریال از دو منبع تغذیه می‌شود، اول بذله‌گویی و شوخی‌های 3 مجری آن که ازقضا چهره و تیپ آن‌ها بیشتر از صدایشان فرح‌بخش است و دوم از کنایه‌ها و تیکه‌های پرمعنی و حساب‌شده‌ی انگلیسی که اختصاص به خود آن‌ها و فرهنگشان دارد و جالب این است که در تمام فرهنگ‌ها قابل‌فهم است. اگرچه این سریال در طول عمر خود چند باری دچار اوج و حضیض شده است اما بالاخره در سال 2015 با درگیری فیزیکی میان جرمی کلارکسون و تهیه‌کننده برنامه بر سر نوع غذا و اخراج او، برنامه وارد مرحله‌ی جدیدی شد. در حال حاضر تخت گاز، سه قسمت از فصل بیست و سوم خود را بدون این 3 مجری و احتمالاً کارگردان و با حضور افراد جدیدی به روی تلویزیون فرستاده است.

A year after 1MDB: Malaysian premier takes hardline turn

A half-dozen countries have launched 1MDB-related probes, but few believe big fish will be caught, citing the carefully constructed complexity of 1MDB fund flowsOne year after a financial scandal that would have toppled many leaders, Najib is standing taller than ever after smothering investigations, outmanoeuvering opponents, and bolstering his control with a pair of recent election wins. Last July 2, the Wall Street Journal reported that Najib received a mysterious $681 million payment, which capped months of allegations that billions were diverted from 1MDB (1Malaysia Development Berhad), an investment fund Najib founded. Other revelations followed, including reports that Najib's film-producer stepson used 1MDB-related funds to bankroll the Hollywood greedfest "The Wolf of Wall Street", and for millions in luxury purchases.

Amid 'Brexit' selloff, some fund managers are bargain shopping

A trader works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) after the opening bell in New YorkBy David Randall NEW YORK (Reuters) - Britain's unexpected decision to leave the European Union spurred a global stock market selloff that has inspired some opportunistic U.S. investors to move in the opposite direction. Operating on the belief that the initial rout might be an overreaction, even in some European stocks, several fund managers said on Friday they were buying up shares of big blue chips, domestic companies that are insulated from a lot of European activity and even European companies that might have been oversold. "We are looking to put cash to work in some of our favorite companies which are cheaper today," said Kevin Dreyer, the co-chief investment officer at Gamco Investors Inc, noting holdings such as razor blade and sunscreen-maker Edgewell Personal Care Co that were down more than 3 percent in morning trading.

What the Brexit Vote Means for the US Economy

What the Brexit Vote Means for the US Economy“Once the dust of the knee-jerk market reaction settles, we think that the UK's economy will clearly be the main victim, but also that the shock for the Euro area and the global economy is likely to be significant,” economists at Bank of America Merrill Lynch wrote to clients on Friday. How businesses and consumers respond will be key — and, ultimately, whether the U.S. economy takes a more significant hit as a result of the Brexit vote may depend in large part on the severity of the market selloff and whether Wall Street anxieties spread to Main Street.

UK markets shudder after Brexit vote, sterling hits 31-year low

People eat and drink in the sunshine in London's Canary Wharf financial centreBy Jamie McGeever and Patrick Graham LONDON (Reuters) - Sterling plunged to its lowest in three decades and the value of London's big banks sank by the most since the 2008 financial crisis as Britain's shock vote to leave the European Union triggered turmoil on global financial markets on Friday. The damage to London's stock market eased as the day wore on, helped by expectations the weaker pound would help many UK companies and by the Bank of England's promise of 250 billion pounds of extra support. But shares in Royal Bank of Scotland and Barclays fell by around 18 percent and, even with an afternoon recovery, sterling's fall was the biggest since the system of free-floating exchange rates was introduced in the early 1970s.
