:: کارشناسان روس و ایرانی قدرت انفجار بمب های بشکه ای اسد را سه برابر کردند
سرهنگ اسعد الزعبی کارشناس سوری در زمینه اسلحه های نظامی روز سه شنبه 21 اکتبر در اظهاراتی گفته که کارشناسان ایران و روسیه بمب های بشکه ای اسد را از 230 کیلوگرم به 700 کیلوگرم افزایش داده اند. به گزارش العربیه کارشناسان نظامی بر این باورند که رژیم بشار اسد، این نوع سلاح را به دلیل کم هزینه بودن تولید آن در داخل این کشور، به جای موشک و بمب های پیشرفته به کار می برد. رژیم سوریه این نوع سلاح کم دقت را در 18 منطقه سوریه تولید می کند و در ساخت آن علاوه بر ماده انفجاری تی ان تی، از خرده آهن و سنگ نیز استفاده می کند. الزعبی که سال گذشته از ارتش اسد جدا شده و به مخالفان پیوسته است در گفت و گو با تلویزیون اوربت فاش کرد که در یکی از حملات اسد علیه مخالفان مسلح، یک بمب بشکه ای لحظاتی پس از شلیک در حالی که از هلی کوبتر حامل آن فاصله چندانی نداشت، در هوا منفجر شد و هلی کوپتر را نابود کرد. به گفته این کارشناس نظامی از آن پس کارشناسان نظامی ایران و روسیه برای رفع این مشکل وارد عمل شده و در ساخت این نوع بمب ها شرکت کردند. الزعبی افزود که کارشناسان ایرانی و روس دلیل انفجار بمب های بشکه ای پیش از رسیدن به زمین را کمی مواد انفجاری آنها تشخیص دادند.

:: تحقیقات کنگره درباره جریان طرفدار دولت ایران در صدای آمریکا (محمد منظرپور دبیر بخش فارس متهم به رابطه با سران رژیم)
تحقیقات کنگره درباره جریان طرفدار دولت ایران در صدای آمریکا تعدادی از اعضای کنگره آمریکا با ارسال نامه‌ای به جان کری وزیر امور خارجه آمریکا خواستار تحقیق درباره جریان طرفدار دولت ایران در بخش فارسی صدای آمریکا شده‌اند به گزارش خبرنامه گویا به نقل از وبسایت واشنگتن فری بیکون٬ قانون گذاران آمریکا به همراه عده‌ای از مخالفین دولت ایران مدعی‌ شده‌اند که جریانی در صدای آمریکا٬ پوشش اخبار را به طرفداری از جمهوری اسلامی انجام می‌دهد و خواستار تحقیق در این مورد شده‌اند. این قانون‌گذاران که از اعضای هر دو حزب آمریکا هستند در نامه‌شان نوشته‌اند: "ما از شما (جان کری) خواستاریم که در مورد هرگونه سوء مدیریت و پوشش خبری منحرف در بخش فارسی صدای آمریکا٬ چه در سطح مدیریت و چه در سطح کارکنان و محتویات اخبار هستیم." استیو کوهن٬ دانا دوراباچر٬ استیو استاکمن٬ ترنت فرانکس٬ هوارد کوبل جز امضا کنندگان این نامه هستند. در این نامه می‌خوانیم: " ما شکایت‌های زیادی از موکلین ایرانی- آمریکایی‌مان دریافت کرده‌ایم که می‌گویند بخش فارسی صدای آمریکا از پوشش وضعیت اسفناک حقوق بشر در ایران ٬ به خصوص افزایش تعداد اعدام در ایران٬ سر باز می‌زند. در طول یک سالی که حسن روحانی رئیس جمهوری ایران بوده حدود ۹۰۰ نفر در ایران اعدام شده‌اند درحالیکه بخشی فارسی صدای آمریکا پوشش خبری کمی در این مورد داشته‌است. در راستای تلاش‌های ما برای خبر رسانی درباره وضعیت مردم بی‌دفاع٬ ما باید اطمینان حاصل کنیم که بخش فارسی صدای آمریکا وظیفه‌اش در اطلاع رسانی بر اساس حقیقت و بی‌طرفی در مورد ایرانیانی که خواستار محافظت ار حقوق بشر در ایران و تغییرات دموکراتیک هستند را به درستی انجام می‌دهد." منتقدین بخش فارسی صدای آمریکا که شامل کارکنان و مهمانان سابق آن می‌شوند می‌گویند فساد سیستماتیکی در این شبکه وجود دارد که شامل سیاست سانسور انتقادات علیه رژیم ایران و سانسور کسانیکه ممکن است اطلاعاتی در مورد مقامات ارشد صدای آمریکا منتشر کنند می‌شود. به گفته این منتقدین بعضی از این مسئولین ارتباطاتی با مقامات ایرانی دارند. در بخش دیگری از این نامه می‌خوانیم: " ما نگران این هستیم که این شبکه که باید با انتشار اخبار و اطلاعات بی طرفانه از گسترش آزادی و دموکراسی دفاع کند به جای کمک کردن به ایرانیانی که طرفدار حقوق بشر هستند٬ به آنها ضربه زده باشد." سران بعضی از گروه‌های ایرانی در آمریکا از این درخواست کنگره استقبال کرده‌اند. مجید صادق پور دبیر سیاس سازمان جوامع ایرانی آمریکایی (OIAC) می‌گوید که مالیات دهندگان آمریکایی انتظار بهتر از این از صدای آمریکا دارند و می‌گوید: "متاسفانه بخش فارسی صدای آمریکا تریبونی برای طرفداران دولت ایران بوده و صدای کسانی که خواهان ایرانی دموکراتیک٬ سکولار و غیر هسته‌ای هستند را سانسور کرده‌است." نیک آهنگ کوثر، سردبیر سایت خودنویس نیز از تجربه‌ قطع مصاحبه اش در میان برنامه‌ای در باره فساد نفتی در جمهوری اسلامی گفته. به گفته کوثر، مجری برنامه صدای آمریکا (مهدی فلاحتی) زمانی که قرار بود دور جدیدی از سوال‌ها را مطرح کند به او خبر داد که به او دستور داده شده که دیگر سوالی از او نپرسد.» کوثر افزود که آقایی از استودیو میکروفون او را گرفت. کوثر می‌افزاید: «وقتی در ایران بودم، به خاطر یک کارتون بازداشت شدم، مرا از برنامه‌های تلویزیونی حذف کردند(ممنوع‌التصویر شدم) و مرا سانسور می‌کردند. اینکه کسی در جمهوری اسلامی سانسور شود، چیز تازه‌ای نیست، اما وقتی در استودیوی صدای آمریکا در خاک ایالات متحده، سرزمین آزادی باشی و بفهمی سانسورت کرده‌اند، حتما خبری هست.» همچنین در ماه سپتامبر٬ مجدی محمدی نیز به دلیل مقایسه جمهوری اسلامی با داعش در لیست سیاه صدای آمریکا قرار گرفته بود. محمد منظرپور دبیر بخش فارس صدای آمریکا در مرکز این انتقادات قرار دارد و متهم است که با سران ایران ارتباط دارد. نامه اعضای کنگره آمریکا منبع: تارنمای خبری گویانیوز #آزادی#بیان#رسانه#آزاد#سانسور#شفافیت

:: مرگ تکان دهنده یک فوتبالیست در وسط زمین فوتبال + تصاویر
باز هم فوتبال و باز هم مرگ. فوتبال و مرگ در چند سال اخیر بارها با هم گره خوردند. جدیدترین قربانی فوتبال یک فوتبالیست لیگ برتری در کشور هند است. به گزارش شفقناورزشی، این فوتبالیست 23 ساله که پیتر بیاک سان گوآلا نام داشت فقط می خواست بابت گل مساوی که برای تیمش زده بود شادی کند. او که به شدت احساساتی شده بود پس از اینکه گل مساوی تیمش یعنی بتلهم ونگتلانگ را مقابل تیم چانماری زد با حرکاتی آکروباتیک می خواست شادی کند اما به شدت زمین خورد و ستون فقرات او به شدت آسیب دید. این اتفاق در دقیقه 62 افتاد. پس از اینکه او به شدت زمین خورد هم تیمی هایش با خوشحالی به سمت او رفتند اما به سرعت متوجه شدند پیتر آسیب دیده است. این فوتبالیست 23 ساله بلافاصله به بیمارستان منتقل شد اما متاسفانه پس از پنج روز درگذشت. مرگ این فوتبالیست به دلیل آسیب ستون فقرات کمرش بسیار شوکه کننده بود. احتمالا مرگ او به دلیل از کار افتاد بصل النخاعش بوده است. بنابر گزارش جام جم ورزشی، تصاویری تلخ و ناراحت کننده از شادی پس از گل این فوتبالیست جوان می بینید، شادی پس از گلی که پنج روز بعد به قیمت جان او تمام شد:
