(5) عده‌ای «بی‌چاره»مانده و عجیب و غریب، با تایید ضمنی انزوای جبهه خودی، دولت روحانی را در ماجرای یمن به تعلل و بانی متحد شدن کشورها حول محور عربستان علیه ایران و حوثی‌ها، متهم می‌کنند! ماجرا به اینجا که رسیده این افراد کمتر سراغ داستان‌سرایی از حماسه‌های سردار قاسم سلیمانی می‌روند؛ اینان همان‌های نیستند که پیش‌تر مدعی بودند: «یک خاورمیانه است و یک قاسم سلیمانی»؟! به راستی، از مقابل هم قرار دادن دیپلمات بودن و انقلابی بودن، دقیقا چه انتظاری می‌شد که داشت و نداشتند؟ . (6) آل‌سعود سال‌هاست به لطف نفت بسیار، همه چیز را می‌خرد و می‌فروشد؛ حقوق بشر و دمکراسی از آن جمله‌اند. همزمان به خاطر میزبانی اماکن شریف اسلامی، مدعی راهبری در دنیای اسلام بوده است. عربستان در دوره ریاست جمهوری رفسنجانی و خاتمی نشان داده بود که راه دوستی را می‌داند؛ مقاومت‌های نظام سعودی را در برابر اتهامات دولت کلینتون علیه ایران در ماجرای انفجار در مقر نظامیان آمریکایی در عربستان، نمی‌شود فراموش کرد همان طور که کشتار حاجیان ایران را در 28 سال قبل. ایران علاقه به مدیریت جهان اسلام را فرو نگذاشته است؛ با نابودی صدام و گیرافتادن آمریکا در افغانستان و عراق، و بسیار بیشتر از آن، طی چهار سال گذشته، آتش این اشتیاق بسیار فزونی گرفت. معلوم بود دو پادشاه در یک اقلیم نخواهند گنجید. از جبهه خودی، کنار راندن امثال خاتمی و رفسنجانی از صحنه قدرت و ایده‌پردازی، که همیشه به روابط خوب با همسایگان اصرار داشتند، و تریبون‌دار ماندن امثال احمد جنتی که مرگ رهبر یک کشور اسلامی را تبریک می‌گویند، چه پیامی به منطقه مخابره می‌کند؟ . (7) نزاعی را که در گرفته، حق‌مدارانه نمی‌دانم؛ حق‌مدار، بشار اسد سفاک را تحمل نمی‌کند، همچنان که آل‌خلیفه تبهکار را. جنگ بر سر حوزه نفوذ است. بر این سوالم که در قرابت آشتی با غرب، فزونی گرفتن دشمنی با همسایگان چه نقمتی بود که این مُلک محتاج به تیماری سخت و طولانی مدت را گرفتار خود می‌کند؟! می‌پرسم اگر ایران و عربستان (که به تلخی، پرچم هر دو مالامال از نشانه‌های اسلامی است)، به معماری درون خانه‌های خود اکتفا کرده بودند، اینک دنیا خاورمیانه آرام‌تری نداشت؟ مسلمان‌های کمتری نفله و له نشده بودند؟

سرگرمی :: تصاویرمتنوع 3 لینک خوابیدن سگ ها و....تصاویر جشن بهار با نبرد خونین سگ‌ها در شمال چین ! ,تصاویر سگ‌کشی در کراچی با گوشت
آنگونه که در تصاویر ضمیمه شده ترسیم شده اشاره شده وقتی سگ خسته است معمولاً خوابیدنش به نظر می ساده است وهرجا باشد می خوابد . اما باد یدن تصاویر باید گفت عجیب دنیای کنونی رنگارنگ ومتضاد می باشد! زیرا از یک سو زندگی ورفتار برخی حیوانات همچون سگ وگربه هم تشریفاتی وتجملاتی و طبقاتی شده است . چون از یک طرف در برخی از کشور ها سگ ها وگربه ها کشته و سلاخی و کباب وپخته وخورده می شوند . همینطور در برخی از کشورهای دیگر مثل ایران و پاکستان سگ های ولگرد گردآوری و با شیوه های گوناگون کشته ونابود می شود . یا اینکه در افغانستان و برخی روستاهای چین جشن مسابقه ی شرط بندی جنگ سگ ها برگزار می شود آنچنانکه سگ هابه سوی هم کیش داده تا در رقابت جنگ وگریز همدیگر را زخمی و خونین و از دور خارج کنند تا برنده شوند.درصورتیکه در برخی از کشور های دیگر سگ ها در خانه ها بعنوان حیوان خانگی گاهی عزیزتر از عضو خانواده اند . طوریکه گذشته از تغذیه غذا وخوراک ویژه و جایگاه مخصوص از دوش گرفتن وبهداشت و درمان پزشکی بارسیدگی های خاص برخوردارند . به خصوص موقع خوابیدن واستراحت کردن شان که آنگونه که در تصاویر ضمیمه شده دیده می شود دارای حالات خاص وجالب است . جالب تر اینکه نه برخلاف برخی از آدم ها سگ ها رابطه دوستانه ومسالمت با همدیگر دارند. حتی اصطلاح معروف مثل سگ وگربه با هم دعوامی کنند نه معنی ندارد و سگ ها با گربه نه دشمنی که قرابت نزدیکی دارند. بهرحال چه می شد که رفتار سگ ها الگویی برای حاکمان کشورها می شد تاکه روابط دوستانه غیر تبعیض آمیز با شهروندان شان داشته باشند . همچنین چه می شد اگرچنانچه کارتون خوابان و کودکان کار خیابانی وحاشیه نشینان شهرها هم دارای منزلت مشابه ی اینگونه سگ هامی شدند؟ تا نه ازجامعه طرد نمی شدند که برخوردار از سرپناه و شغل مناسب و زندگی عادی شرافتمندانه در خور انسانیت می شدند . به خصوص کارتون خوابان هموطنان مان که شامل سنین مختلف اند......

:: بازداشت فعال سابق دانشجویی!
معصومه قلی‌زاده، فعال سابق دانشجویی و فعال چپ عصر روز گذشته، ۳۱ اردی بهشت ماه ۱۳۹۳، در تهران بازداشت شده است. بنا به اخبار منتشر شده معصومه قلی‌زاده، فارغ‌التحصیل کارشناسی فلسفه از دانشگاه علامه طباطبایی تهران بوده و برای ادامه‌ی تحصیل به کشور ترکیه رفته بود که مدتی پس از بازگشت به ایران توسط نیروهای امنیتی بازداشت شد. تاکنون، اطلاعی از محل نگه‌داری وی به دست نیامده است. یک منبع مطلع در این خصوص گفت: «وی ساکن تبریز بوده و احتمال دارد به اداره اطلاعات این شهر منتقل شود.» پی نوشت: جمهوری اسلامی چهره منفور و کثیفی پیش مردم دارد و به همین خاطر از فعالین و دانشجویان و اعتراضاتشان بیم و هراس دارد و به هر شکلی میخواهد آنها و جنبش های اعتراضی علیه خودش را سرکوب کند و صدای آنها را خفه کند، در همین رابطه چندی پیش جمهوری اسلامی اعلام کرده بود هر کس که در گذشته فعالیت سیاسی داشته باشد اگر به ایران بازگردد مشکلی برای او پیش نمیاید که دیدیم این مشکل برای معصومه قلی نژاد و چند تفر دیگر پیش آمد و یکی دیگر از دروغهای حکومت رو شد و مشخص شد نباید به این رژیم اعتماد کرد، باید هر چه زودتر معصومه قلی زاده و دیگر زندانیان سیاسی آزاد شوند.

:: تصرف کامل یک شهر عمده در سوریه توسط جنگجویان وابسته به القاعده
روز گذشته جنگجویان جبهه نصرت، وابسته به القاعده، به طور کامل کنترل شهر ادلب در شمال غربی سوریه را به دست گرفتند. فعالان اپوزیسیون می‌گویند این حمله ضربه بزرگی به دولت بشار اسد، رییس جمهوری سوریه خواهد بود که نیروهایش پس از چهار روز درگیری سنگین در این شهر به شدت آسیب دیدند. پس از رقه که اکنون از مراکز اصلی استقرار داعش است، ادلب، دومین مرکز استانی‌ست که به دست گروه‌های مخالف می‌افتد و بیانگر افزایش بیش از پیش قدرت گروه‌های تندرویی مانند داعش و جبهه نصرت است؛ گروه‌هایی که اکنون کنترل حدود نیمی از سوریه را در دست دارند. هرچند جنگجویان مخالف دولت دمشق از جمله اعضای جبهه نصرت از سال ۲۰۱۲ کنترل روستاها و شهرهای استان ادلب را در دست داشتند اما نیروهای وابسته به بشار اسد تا روز گذشته توانسته بودند تسلط خود را بر شهر ادلب در نزدیکی مرز ترکیه حفظ کنند. روز گذشته جنگجویان اسلامگرا ساختمان‌های مهم دولتی را تصرف کرده و پوستر‌های بشار اسد را پاره کردند. ویدئوهایی که از این وقایع در اینترنت منتشر شده گروهی از جنگجویان مسلح را نشان می‌دهد که در میدان مرکزی ادلب گرد آمده و به نشانه شکرگذاری زانو زده بودند و عده‌ای دیگر هم الله اکبر گویان، تیر هوایی شلیک می‌کردند. دولت سوریه در روزهای گذشته ادعا کرده بود هزاران تن از ترکیه وارد خاک سوریه شده‌اند تا به ادلب و حومه آن حمله کنند. قابل پیش‌بینی است که حالا جبهه نصرت پس از تصرف ادلب خواهد توانست موقعیت خود را بیش از پیش در مناطقی که از مرز ترکیه تا مناطق مرکزی و جنوبی ترکیه امتداد دارد تقویت کند. با تمرکز توجه جهانی بر روی داعش، جبهه نصرت در ماه‌های اخیر به آرامی در حال افزایش نفوذ و قدرت خود، اجرای شریعت اسلامی در مناطق تحت تسلط خود و درهم کوبیدن گروه‌های میانه‌روی مورد حمایت غرب بوده است.

:: وضعیت گروه‌ های درگیر در عملیات تصرف شهر ادلب (بر حسب سهم افراد شرکت کننده در عملیات)
1. احرار الشام: زیر گروه "جبهه اسلامیه"، بزرگترین گروه میانه‌ روی مسلمانان مخالف مسلّح در سوریه است. جبهه ی اسلامی، با حدود 50 هزار نفر مسلّح، از تجمع 7 گروه تشکیل شده که در میان آنها حرکت احرار الشام با حدود 15 هزار عضو، اکثریت نسبی را دارد. از این جهت احرار الشام در عملیات اخیر حضور پُر رنگ دارد که از 83 گروه تشکیل دهنده ی آن، اکثریت در استان ادلب حضور دارند و سپس کمتر در حماه و حلب و شماری هم در جنوب در درعا. احرار الشام بال راست جبهه ی اسلامی محسوب میشود و جائیکه خواسته شود با النصره عملیاتی انجام شود (در 90 درصد اوقات در ادلب) این گروه همچون رابط عمل می‌ کند. 2. جبهه ی النصره: شاخه ی القاعده در سوریه با تخمین 5 هزار نفر. روز به روز بیشتر در غرب ادلب، استانی که در آن موثر ترین حضور را دارد، قدرت می گیرد. بعد از قلع و قمع جبهه ی ثوار زیر شاخه ی ارتش آزاد در جبل‌ الزاویه به دنبال تثبیت هژمونیِ خود است و در تصرف اخیر ادلب نیز از همان نقطه که پیشتر حضور داشت عمل کرد، در شمال غرب شهر. می‌ توان گفت تنها نگرانی انقلابیون سوری را آینده‌ ی النصره تشکیل می‌ دهد و باید در پست و مباحثی مجزا مفصل به خطرات حضور این گروه در شمال سوریه پرداخت. اگر قرار باشد روزی النصره در استانی در سوریه اعلام خلافت کند، آن استان ادلب خواهد بود. 3. فیلق‌ الشام: مسلمانان میانه‌ رویِ عضو شورای انقلابیون سوری شامل تجمع 19 گروه، که بیشترین همکاری را با ارتش آزاد دارند و بیشتر در حلب، حماه و کفرنبل ادلب فعالند. 4. جند الاقصی: گروه هزار تا هزار و پانصد نفره، اما بسیار نزدیک به النصره که بیشتر در شمال حماه و ادلب فعال است. بسیاری از اعضای آن‌ را همچون جبهه انصار الدین (که طبق اعلام رسمی 100 نفر را برای این گروه به منظور عملیات ادلب فرستاده بود) جهادی‌ های خارجی تشکیل می دهند. 5. فرسان الحق: گروه زیر شاخه ی ارتش آزاد، که بخشی از افرادش آموزش دیده توسط آمریکا هستند و موشکهای تاو آمریکایی در اختیار دارند. اکثراً در ادلب و کمی هم در حومه ی حلب فعال هستند. 6. صقور الغاب: گروه زیر شاخه ی ارتش آزاد که اکثراً در شمال غرب استان حماه فعال است. صقور الغاب به عنوان زیر گروه شورای فرماندهی انقلابیون سوری فعال است و از اولین دسته‌ هایی است که از غرب موشک آمریکائی تاو دریافت کرد. 7. لواء الحق: زیر شاخه ی استان حمصِ لواء الحق که در اصل در استان ادلب فعالیت می کرد. این گروه بعد از ضعیف شدن در 2012 به احرار الشام، زیر شاخه ی جبهه اسلامیه پیوست و عملاً جزئی از آن به شمار می‌ رود.

:: اصغر فرهادی درباره استاد محمدرضا شجریان فیلم می‌سازد
دوستداران پرشمار «جدایی نادر از سیمین» احتمالا سکانس ادای دین فرهادی به شجریان را به خاطر دارند. اوایل فیلم جایی که سیمین (لیلا حاتمی) در حال ترک نادر (پیمان معادی) است، هنگام جمع کردن وسایلش به سی دی‌ای که در دست دارد اشاره می‌کند می‌گوید: "این شجریان رو هم من می‌برم". خبر احتمال فیلم ساختن فرهادی درباره شجریان گرچه هنوز تایید نشده اما طبق شنیده‌های بانی فیلم، اصغر فرهادی و شجریان برای ساخت این فیلم وارد مذاکره شده‌اند. اما هنوز برای ساخت این فیلم، به مرحله عقد قرارداد نرسیده‌اند. این در حالی است که اصغر فرهادی برای ساخت فیلم سینمایی جدیدش نیز استارت نزده و پیش بینی می‌شود در صورت این همکاری ساخت پروژه سینمایی‌اش به اواخر سال آینده موکول شود. اگر همکاری شجریان و فرهادی میسر شود، می‌تواند جذاب‌ترین خبر سینما در سال 94 باشد.

:: فرح پهلوی در گفتگو با روزنامه آلمانی دی‌ولت
فرح پهلوی در گفتگو با روزنامه آلمانی «دی‌ولت»، از شاه انتقاد کرد که «بیش از حد سرگرم سیاست خودش بود. او به آدم‌های عوضی اعتماد کرد و دست بسیاری از ژنرال‌ها و کارمندان بلندپایه را باز گذاشت» بعد از انقلاب ما از خودمان می‌پرسیدیم ما چه اشتباهی کردیم. خیلی چیز‌ها مطرح می‌شد، فشاری که از طریق اصلاحات اجتماعی و اقتصادی شاه بر کشور وارد می‌شد. در کشور جریانات مختلفی وجود داشتند: کمونیست‌ها و روحانیت. فشار غرب هم بر این افزوده می‌شد. فشار آمریکایی‌ها، بریتانیایی‌ها و فرانسوی‌ها. آن‌ها ما را در افزایش قیمت نفت مقصر می‌دانستند و اینکه شاه از اوپک پشتیبانی می‌کند. غرب به این دلیل گذاشت ایران سقوط کند. وقتی که من امروز انتقاد رسانه‌ها و سیاستمداران غربی علیه جمهوری اسلامی را می‌شنوم باید بگویم: طبعا ما بی‌خطا نبودیم، اما ما نیت خوبی داشتیم. همسر من می‌خواست اول ایران را به لحاظ اقتصادی توسعه بدهد تا بعد به آزادی سیاسی برسد. ما به زمان زیادی نیاز داشتیم و به اشتباه افتادیم. ما کور شده بودیم. ما به جای آنکه نگران متعصبان مذهبی باشیم، نگران کمونیست‌ها بودیم.

:: انتقال دانشجوی زندانی محمد مهدی ابیات به سلول انفرادی!
دانشجوی زندانی محمد مهدی ابیات به سلول انفرادی منتقل گردید. صبح روز شنبه ۳ خرداد ماه هنگامی که تمامی زندانیان در خواب بسر می بردند دانشجوی زندانی محمد مهدی ابیات که حدودا ۲۲ ساله می باشد بدون اطلاع همبندانش، با فریب توسط رئیس زندان از بند خارج و به سلولهای انفرادی منتقل گردید. دانشجوی زندانی توسط محمد مردانی رئیس زندان گوهردشت کرج و امیری معاون وی که پیش از این رئیس گارد زندان بود به سلولهای انفرادی منتقل شد. روز چهارشنبه ۳۱ اردیبهشت ماه هنگامیکه این دانشجوی زندانی قصد ملاقات با خانواده اش را داشت توسط زندانبانان مورد یورش وضرب و شتم شدید قرار گرفت و از ملاقات با خانواده اش منع شد. ضرب و شتم این دانشجو در مقابل چشمان خانواده اش صورت گرفت که باعث اعتراض شدید خانواده وی گردید و زندانبانان به جای رسیدگی به اعتراضات این خانواده خواهر او را به مدت ۱،۵ ساعت بازداشت نمودند و مورد تهدید و اذیت و آزار قرار دادند. محمد مهدی ابیات دانشجوی رشته کامپیوتر می باشد که در اعتراضات سال ۸۸ فعالانه شرکت داشت که دستگیر و مدتی در بازداشت مامورین وزارت اطلاعات قرار داشت ولی با گذاشتن وثیقه سنگین از زندان آزاد گردید .سپس او را به دادگاه انقلاب احضار نمودند و به ۳ سال زندان محکوم کردند . پی نوشت: مهدی ابیات در حال سپری کردن مدت محکومیت غیر قانونی اش است و نزدیک به ۹ ماه است که در زندان بسر می برد، انتقال این دانشجو به سلول انفرادی ، ضرب و شتم وی و بازداشت خواهر او کاری وحشیانه و غیر انسانی است و باید هر چه زود تر بساط شکنجه و این وحشی گیرها برچیده شود. افرادی مثل محمد مهدی بیات هیچ جرمی مرتکب نشده اند و باید آزاد شوند.

شبکه القاعده و متحدانش از تصرف شهر ادلب در شمال شرق سوریه خبر دادند. تصاویر ارسالی از این شهر عده ای را در حال تخریب مجسمه حافظ اسد، رهبر سابق سوریه نشان می دهد. بنابر گزارشها، تصرف این شهر پس از پنج روز جنگی که به قیمت جان 130 نفر از هر دو طرف تمام شد، میسر گردید. ادلب دومین مرکز استان سوریه است که طی چهار سال گذشته از کنترل حکومت این کشور خارج می شود. پیشتر رقه در شمال سوریه تحت کنترل جهادگرایان داعش در آمده بود. گروه ائتلافی جبهه النصره، جند الاقصا، جیش السنه، احرار الشام و دیگر گروههای جهادی در این عملیات مشارکت داشتند. تحلیلگران معتقدند که گسترش قلمرو گروه جبهه النصره باعث تشدید رقابت با داعش خواهد شد.

:: ازدواجی که تبلیغ شد٬ طلاقی که افشاگر شد /آزاده نامداری و تصویری از یک خشونت رایج
در تلویزیونی که گفتن جمله دوستت دارم جزو تابوهاست و مجموع دفعات استفاده از آن در طول عمر جمهوری اسلامی انگشت‌شمار است٬ روزی یک زوج جوان در پخش زنده شبکه سه از عاشقی گفتند و مرد شعری عاشقانه خطاب به زن سرود. مجری هم آرزو کرد که تمام خانواده‌های ایرانی استحکام ازدواجشان به استحکام این ازدواج باشد تا ازدواج فرزاد حسنی و آزاده نامداری٬ دو مجری محبوب تلویزیون در افکار عمومی٬‌مترادف تصویر مقبول و دلخواه باشد. به دورانی که با دستور صریح و مستقیم رهبر جمهوری اسلامی دولت به دنبال افزایش جمعیت و فرزندآوری است و توصیه به ازدواج و تبلیغ و ترویج آن٬ راه حل همه آسیب‌های اجتماعی شمرده می‌شود. اما نه تنها ازدواج فرزاد و آزاده طولانی مدت نشد بلکه در نوروز ۹۴ ٬ تصویر چهره ضرب خورده نامداری بار دیگر موضوع خشونت خانگی در ایران را بر سر زبان‌ها انداخت و جنجالی شد. مجادله‌ای با حضور مجریان تلویزیون آزاده نامداری در صفحه اینستاگرام خود عکسی از زیر چشم کبود خود منتشر کرد و مدعی شد که توسط فرزاد حسنی٬ همسر سابق خود کتک خورده است. این سرآغاز جنجالی بزرگ بود که تا هنوز در شبکه‌های اجتماعی ادامه دارد. نامداری در این پست اینستاگرامی که اکنون حذف شده٬ نوشته بود: "متاسفم که مجبورم این عکس خصوصی رو منتشر کنم. اما دیگه باید… باید… این عکس مستنده و بسیاری از مدیران محترم تلویزیون خودمو و حالمو رویت کردن. امروز به لطف دروغگویی ایشون مستند من پخش نشد و هزار اتفاق تلخ دیگه… من الان سرپام، خوبم. زندگی می‌کنم. درس می‌دم. کار می‌کنم و دوباره زنده شدم.

:: شبه‌نظامیان مخالف دولت سوریه شهر ادلب را 'تصرف کردند'
شبه‌نظامیان در سوریه کنترل بیشتر قسمت‌های شهر ادلب را در شمال غرب این کشور به دست آورده‌اند. گروه جبهه نصرت وابسته به القاعده و چند گروه شبه‌نظامی اسلامی دیگر توانسته‌اند نیروهای نظامی دولت سوریه را بعد از چهار روز نبرد عقب برانند. دولت سوریه در طول چند سال جنگ داخلی کنترل ادلب را حفظ کرده بود. این شهر فقط برای مدت کوتاهی در سال ۲۰۱۲ در دست مخالفان بود. بر اساس گزارش‌ها، شبه‌نظامیان مشغول بازرسی شهر ادلب و ساختمان‌های دولتی برای یافتن نیروهایی هستند که احتمال دارد در شهر مانده باشند. به گفته مخالفان دولت بشار اسد، نیروهای دولت بشار اسد از چند روز گذشته 'بمباران شیمیایی و حملات گسترده‌ای' را در اطراف این شهر آغاز کرده بودند. آنان دولت سوریه را متهم کرده‌اند که با بمباران مناطق غیرنظامی باعث مرگ شهروندان و کودکان شده‌اند. امروز بان کی‌مون، دبیرکل سازمان ملل متحد گفته است از "شکست جمعی تلاش‌های منطقه‌ای و بین‌المللی برای حل این بحران شرمسار" است. آقای بان از این‌که نیروهای دولتی و شبه‌نظامیان مخالف دولت هر دو در حال "تخریب کشورشان" هستند، ابراز خشم کرده است. شهر ادلب در مرکز استان ادلب است. ادلب دومین استان سوریه است که بعد از رقه به دست شبه‌نظامیان مخالف دولت بشار اسد می‌افتد. به گفته خبرنگاران، سقوط ادلب به طور کامل، شکستی بزرگ برای دولت سوریه محسوب خواهد شد. شبه‌نظامیان جبهه نصرت آبان ماه سال ۱۳۹۳ هم در حملاتی تلاش کردند ادلب را تصرف کنند اما موفق نشدند. از سوی دیگر در ۶۰ کیلومتری شهر ادلب هم در استان حلب درگیری‌ها در چند نقطه میان شبه‌نظامیان و نیروهای دولتی سوریه ادامه دارد. سازمان دیدبان حقوق بشر سوریه مستقر در لندن می‌گوید دست‌کم ۲۴ غیرنظامی بر اثر حملات جبهه نصرت در استان حلب کشته شده‌اند. به گفته این سازمان درگیری‌های شدیدی در مناطق تحت کنترل نیروهای دولتی جریان دارد.

Subdued quarterly earnings likely to weigh heavy on equities markets
"With F&O (future and options) expiry (which happens on the third Friday of every month) and a short working week with just three working days and one day without clearing, the expectation is that the markets are going to be trading in a very narrow range," Geojit BNP Paribas vice president Gaurang Shah told IANS. The Indian markets will remain closed on April 2-3 on account of Mahavir Jayanti and Good Friday. According to Shah, post the five-to six percent correction on the index which had earlier witnessed lifetime highs, the downside would be very much limited and the recovery thereafter will be slow and shallow with a huge amount of time spent in consolidation. Further action on the fiscal or monetary front, if any, can give some upside to the market," Dipen Shah, head of private client group research at Kotak Securities, told IANS.

Intel in talks to buy Altera, shares of firms surge

The sign hanging outside the Intel booth is seen at the International Consumer Electronics show (CES) in Las VegasIntel Corp is in talks to buy fellow chipmaker Altera Corp in a deal likely to top $10 billion, according to a source familiar with the matter, making it Intel's biggest purchase ever and the latest merger in the quickly consolidating semiconductor sector. The acquisition of Altera, which makes programmable chips widely used in cellphone towers, the military and other industrial applications, would underscore Intel Chief Executive Officer Brian Krzanich's determination to expand into new markets as the personal computer industry loses steam. Earlier this month, Intel slashed nearly $1 billion from its first-quarter revenue forecast to $12.8 billion, plus or minus $300 million, as small businesses put off upgrading their personal computers. Shares of Altera shot up about 28 percent after the talks were first reported by the Wall Street Journal, closing at $44.39 per share on the Nasdaq.

Former Yahoo CFO on Pao trial: Most women I know, including me, face sexism at work

Former Yahoo CFO on Pao trial: Most women I know, including me, face sexism at workWikimedia Commons Sue Decker, a former Yahoo exec and Wall Street analyst, says she’s been “obsessed” with the Ellen Pao trial. Decker’s storied career, which included being CFO during Yahoo’s heyday, has turned her into a Valley powerhouse. She currently sits on the boards of a bunch of powerful companies including Intel, Costco, and Berkshire Hathaway. She’s been watching the trial so closely, that she attended the closing arguments in person yesterday, pulling her daughters out of school for the day to watch with her. Why? She heard truth in Ellen Pao’s story. In a column on LinkedIn Decker wrote: I, and most women I know, have been a party to as least some sexist or discriminatory behavior in the workplace. Many of the examples raised in this trial are behaviors I have personally witnessed along the way. At the same time, the men who may be promulgating it are often very unaware of the slights, and did not intend the outcome. For the women, it happens in little incremental steps, that often seem so small in isolation, that any individual act seems silly to complain about. So we move on. But in aggregate, and with the perspective of hindsight, they are real. That said, the jury didn’t see the same kind of truth. It basically sided with Pao’s former employer, Kleiner Perkins, on three out of four charges. The last charge is still being deliberated — the charge that Kleiner fired her for complaining about harassment and filing the lawsuit. The jury had 8 votes against Pao on that charge. It needed 9.

Chipmaker deal helps Wall St. rebound, oil slumps anew

Trader is reflected in a screen as he works on the floor of the NYSE in New YorkBy Michael Connor NEW YORK (Reuters) - Wall Street on Friday closed higher for the first time in a week, lifted by rising tech stocks, while oil prices slumped 5 percent on receding fears about Middle East fighting disrupting supplies. The major U.S. stock indexes snapped a four-day losing streak after the Wall Street Journal reported chipmaker Intel Corp is in talks to buy rival Altera Corp. Chipmakers bounced, led by a 28 percent gain in Altera. "We've seen a lot of M&A news recently and it’s helping the market," said Stephen Massocca, chief investment officer at Wedbush Equity Management LLC in San Francisco. Oil investors' worries diminished about the conflict in Yemen, which is close to a major chokepoint for oil tankers, and focused on new supplies possibly coming to market after any Iranian nuclear deal.

Fed weighs insurers' proposal for new capital rules

The facade of the U.S. Federal Reserve building is reflected on wet marble during the early morning hours in WashingtonBy Douwe Miedema WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve is considering a proposal from life insurers that could delay the implementation of a costly nationwide capital framework for the $1 trillion industry, according to records of a recent meeting between the two sides seen by Reuters and people familiar with the matter. More than a dozen senior insurance executives met Fed Governor Dan Tarullo on Feb. 6 to pitch a two-step process for launching nationwide insurance rules, according to records of the meeting by Dirk Kempthorne, who heads the American Council of Life Insurers, an industry group. The group presented the plan under which the Fed would use the current system of state-based regulation for a period of time before writing a national framework that would likely require firms to boost capital buffers, according to the meeting records and people briefed on the matter. Tarullo, the Fed's top Wall Street regulator, did not indicate whether he was open to adopting the insurers' proposal, the people said.

N.Y. broker-dealer execs get prison time for Venezuelan bribe scheme
By Nate Raymond NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two former executives of a defunct Wall Street broker-dealer were sentenced to prison on Friday for participating in a scheme to pay $5 million in bribes to an official at a Venezuelan state economic development bank in exchange for business. Benito Chinea, the former chief executive officer of Direct Access Partners LLC, and Joseph DeMeneses, a managing director at the firm, were each sentenced by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan to four years in prison. Prosecutors said Chinea, 48, and DeMeneses, 45, participated in a scheme from 2008 through 2012 to direct payments to Maria de los Angeles Gonzalez de Hernandez, a senior official at Banco de Desarrollo Económico y Social de Venezuela, or Bandes. Direct Access employees sent $5 million in kickbacks to Gonzalez, generally through bank accounts she controlled in Switzerland and elsewhere, prosecutors said.

By Tomo Uetake TOKYO (Reuters) - Just over three months after raising hundreds of millions of dollars in a stock market listing, Japanese mobile game developer Gumi Inc plans to cut 10 percent of its workforce and sell assets as part of a drive to bounce back from losses it expects this financial year. The moves come three weeks after Gumi shocked investors by forecasting an operating loss for the 12 months ending Apr. 30. It made its debut on the Tokyo Stock Exchange's main board in a prestigious 45 billion yen ($377 million) initial public offering last December, one of Japan's biggest in 2014. In a statement released after the market's close on Friday, Gumi said it was offering buyouts to employees and selling assets related to two game titles for older mobile phones.

Russia's NLMK sees flat Q1 after Q4 earnings fall
Russian steelmaker NLMK expects profitability to be flat in the first quarter compared with the fourth quarter of 2014, when its earnings were hit by lower steel prices and an impairment charge related to the weaker rouble. NLMK has received a boost to exports from the lower rouble, which has fallen about 40 percent against the dollar since mid-2014 due to weaker oil prices and Western sanctions over Moscow's role in the Ukraine crisis. NLMK, controlled by businessman Vladimir Lisin, said its fourth-quarter net profit fell 17 percent, quarter-on-quarter, to $232 million. Revenue was down 10 percent, quarter-on-quarter, to $2.3 billion on the back of lower steel prices, while the cash cost of slab, the semi-finished steel product which NLMK exports, fell 24 percent to $225 per tonne at its core Lipetsk assets.

Shares of the world's largest retailer of video game products, which also reported a quarterly profit that missed estimates, fell 6 percent in after-market trading on Thursday. Demand for Microsoft Corp's Xbox One and Sony Corp's PlayStation 4 consoles have also cooled off since the holiday shopping season. "It just feels like things are going to be a little bit softer than what the initial model had projected." The eighth-generation video game consoles followed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Stocks slide, oil prices jump after Yemen air strikes

Specialist trader Peter Giacchi gives a price just before the opening bell on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Michael Connor NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices jumped 5 percent and stock markets worldwide slumped on Thursday after Saudi Arabia and allies carried out air strikes in Yemen, which fueled worries in the Middle East that energy shipments may be put at risk. Wall Street steadied in late trading, narrowing losses that had been as much as 1 percent to close just modestly lower with support from economic data and corporate earnings reports. "The air strikes in Yemen have really created a risk-off mood," said Rabobank strategist Philip Marey. In currency markets, the dollar fell against traditional safe havens the Swiss franc and the yen after warplanes from Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries struck Shi'ite Muslim rebels fighting to oust Yemen's president.

Fed officials say rate hike plan intact despite weak U.S. data

A tour bus passes the United States Federal Reserve Board building in WashingtonBy Ben Klayman DETROIT (Reuters) - The Federal Reserve should remain on track to raise interest rates later this year despite the U.S. economy's weak start to the year and a stock market sell-off this week, two Fed officials said on Thursday. In separate events in Frankfurt and Detroit, St. Louis Fed President James Bullard and Atlanta Fed President Dennis Lockhart said U.S. monetary policy might need to be adjusted in light of the economy's steady improvement since the 2007-2009 financial crisis. Fed policymakers also lowered their growth forecasts at last week's policy-setting meeting. The challenge now, Lockhart said, is to sort out whether recent weakness in exports, manufacturing and capital investment indicate the start of an economic slowdown or other temporary factors such as the soaring value of the U.S. dollar.

Kuwait opens door for foreign operator to own part of stock market
By Hadeel Al Sayegh DUBAI, March 26 (Reuters) - The Kuwait Stock Exchange may offer up to 44 percent of its shares to a company that has experience in operating bourses when it goes public, a senior government official told Reuters on Thursday. Such a move, which still requires the sign-off by lawmakers in the Gulf Arab state, would open the way for an international exchange operator such as Nasdaq OMX or Euronext to take a stake in one of the Middle East's oldest stock markets. Kuwaiti lawmakers voted on Wednesday to amend the ownership structure for the impending initial public offering (IPO) of the bourse, Faisal al-Shaya, head of the Kuwait's parliament's economic and financial committee, told Reuters by telephone. A second and final vote on the law is expected at the next parliament session in two weeks, or a decision may be taken earlier by the economic and financial committee on behalf of the lawmakers, he said.

Wall Street lower in wake of air strikes on Yemen

Traders work on the floor of the New York Stock ExchangeBy Chuck Mikolajczak NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. stocks fell at the open on Thursday to put the S&P 500 on track for a fourth straight decline, after Saudi Arabia and its allies launched air strikes on Yemen. Oil prices spiked, with Brent crude up 2.4 percent to $57.86 and U.S. crude up 3 percent to $50.69 after warplanes from Saudi Arabia and its allies struck Shi'ite Muslim rebels fighting to oust Yemen's president. "Obviously the situation in Yemen is being used as the excuse for this pullback, which is a continuation of yesterday," said Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital in New York. "Whether or not this is the beginning of a correction that could take us down by eight or ten percent I’m not sure, but certainly the ingredients for one are in the making." U.S. stocks had dropped on Wednesday as a slump in technology and biotechs sent the Nasdaq to its biggest decline in nearly a year while the S&P 500 fell through key support levels.

MIDEAST STOCKS-Saudi Arabia's stock market turns positive as Yemen panic abates
(Updates with Saudi market rebounding) DUBAI, March 26 (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia's stock market stabilised and turned positive late in the session on Thursday after a sell-off driven by the escalation of conflict in Yemen. The benchmark edged up 0.2 percent, buoyed by blue chips such as food makers Savola Group and Almarai , up 2.2 and 2.3 percent respectively. Petrochemicals giant Saudi Basic Industries climbed 0.8 percent after oil prices surged in response to air strikes carried out by Saudi Arabia and its allies against Yemen's Houthi militia.
