Recently, job offices at major Amarr universities have received advertisements from the Excubitoris Chapter.

These advertisements ask for specialists in religious pedagogy and for lawyers specializing in the law as it applies to slaves, freedpeople, and commoners to apply to PIE. The jobs would be permanent and would require relocation to Thebeka.

Planetary Civil Defence Grid Strengthening Nearly Complete

Gelfiven VI, Harjvalt, Sataku District - For the past year, mysterious construction sites and material convoys have been appearing around large and small cities alike, and today their purpose has been officially unveiled: Upon the urging of the youngest daughter of the business magnate Mikkon Noduri, the Noduri Enterprises conglomerate has directed considerable portions of its wealth into refurbishing, building and stocking public civil defence shelters, and constructions of orbital and aerial defence infrastructure around the planet.

"I completely understand that some of you are worried that private industry is building weapons platforms around our neighbourhoods, forests, rural lands. It is more than understandable. But perhaps I can assuage your fears a bit. The defence units are slaved to the planetary defence grid, and crewed by the local military forces. We have no desire to stage an uprising of any sort, we just want to give back to our community.

Originally, this project was started from wanting to respond to the growing precursor threat, but recent events surrounding Matar itself show that strengthening planetary defences is only part of a solution. We are also directing our people to develop more robust anti-infiltration software algorithms and practices for our defence systems.” - Noduri Enterprises Public Relations Manager, Etuard Renkel.

Cynical voices have already pointed out that while this gift to the people of Mara is appreciated and maybe even to be applauded, this also seems to be a move from the conglomerate to expand its businesses to the extremely lucrative arms manufacturing and defence markets - especially in the wake of and coinciding with the founding of the New Eden Defence Fund. More evil tongues point out that the defence systems are all newly designed, and untested in an actual crisis. However, the company is using its own products to defend their headquarters, clearly confident in their effectiveness.

You Can’t Go Home Again: Credit Downgrade Hampers City’s Efforts To Rebuild

All is not well in Moisant.

That goes without saying. Everyone who knew someone in Moisant also knows someone who didn’t survive the storm. Everyone who ever visited the city or its quiet, soothing island metro area will have a favorite spot that just isn’t there anymore. And if the news out of Octanneve is correct, then there’s a solid chance that that spot won’t come back at all.

Reports indicate that several major corporations, both Federal and clusterwide, have informed Clan Chief Kaya Licei that they do not intend to rebuild their shops, offices, restaurants, and factories there. These corporations have cited the hurricane as too much of a “risk” and complained that the loss of their projects in Moisant have negatively affected their profits.

In turn, these same reports have affected Moisant’s credit rating, which is essentially a set of numbers that investors, banks, and other governments use to decide whether a city can pay back its debts. Due to the loss of business, Moisant’s credit rating has been downgraded. Further corporations have begun to cite the downgraded rating as their reasons for not returning to the city.

This is notwithstanding almost manic efforts from the two corporations who led Moisant’s rescue efforts, Corovid Industries and Viavant, and especially Viavant’s CEO, a softspoken capsuleer psychologist named Astaire Quatrevaux. Sources within those corporations say that their PR departments have been aggressively courting these businesses, offering deal after deal to bring them back. The deals have rarely worked.

Quatrevaux announced earlier today an initiative aimed at enticing new businesses to Moisant as the reconstruction effort begins. His plan in this regard seems to be to lean on benevolence and kinship–two qualities that are exceedingly rare among capsuleers. But if he can lure back fresh business to the area, then Moisantians might forgive him his naïveté.

The doctor also released figures regarding losses in and around the city. Deaths totaled 7,315, and the number of missing has dropped to 335. Additionally, a few areas on higher land that sustained less damage will be opened for residents to return tomorrow. Those areas include Jean-Baptiste, Vieux Quartier, and Jardin Riche.

Residents of other areas have received notifications that their neighborhoods are likely to be unlivable “for an extended period of time”. Those areas are: Babiney, Kellerin, Queya Quay, Yucay, Île des Cokís, Four-Cave Island, and Last Island.

FreedomAid Today monthly e-newsletter, November YC121 edition, released 11.10.YC121

Alert: Double-check your Vitoc shipments, says Republic-based Vitoc task force

A number of hospitals, clinics, and refugee organizations across the Republic have reported that their shipments of Vitoc antidotes have been smaller than expected.

In each case, the shipments have only been short by a small amount, such that many managers of these clinics and programs only began to notice the shortages after they accumulated over time. Also, the discrepancies can always be attributed to small accounting errors. Numbers including 9s might be rendered as 6s, or 8s might be rendered as 5s or 0s, for example.

A spokesperson for Immigration and Resettlement declined to answer most of our questions, but did confirm that the problem exists and that it is being addressed. When pressed for clarification, the spokesperson added that the department that regulates Vitoc distributors in the Republic has recently seen a few shifts in employment following the unexpected death of Ian Desantis, a longtime manager of that department. His replacement was fired and replaced following the discovery of the errors, but the errors have persisted even following that change.

The antidotes that have been affected by these errors are all for the most recent strains of the toxin, resulting in a significant decrease in availability for freedpeople who rely on these updated versions. While the supply is not yet in danger of running out, clinics and relief organizations have expressed frustration at facing this decline and at lacking a full understanding of how to correct the errors.

It is unclear whether the additional antidotes do exist and are being distributed to the wrong places, or are not being manufactured at all. The distribution centers have been quick to lay blame at the feet of the Vitoc manufacturers and developers, who in turn state that they know nothing about the errors and have no access to the faulty databases.

The spokesperson recommended that all clinics and organizations who obtain Vitoc through Republic distribution centers should be sure to verify the quantities of the antidote when shipments arrive and report any discrepancies immediately.

Policy notice for DocBox.galnet, posted 14.10.YC121

Dear Valued Users,

As always, thank you for choosing DocBox for your document-storing and -sharing needs.

We would like to take this time to remind you that DocBox documents are uploaded by other users, regular people just like you. With over 80 billion documents currently hosted by our service, it would be impossible for us to inspect and verify every single one of them. We don’t claim that everything available through us is legitimate or correct–as our Terms and Conditions make clear.

We’ve received several mails and forum posts about a number of documents that all appear to have unexpected contents. Each of the versions of ‘Pax e Kilizhi Do’, the recent doctrinal work by Empress Catiz I, that has been uploaded to DocBox results in an actual download of ‘The Test of Faith’, the manifesto by Samira Kernher and the Avetat Order.

We are responding to these apparent upload errors by notifying the uploaders and then banning them if they continue the behavior, again as explained in our ToS.

This problem is not unique to DocBox; other document-sharing sites have reported the same phenomenon.

While we are not here to make any sort of political or religious statement ourselves, we would like to extend our apologies for any confusion arising from this situation. We would also like to remind our esteemed users that we are not responsible for the further distribution of either text, whether online or in person.

We will note that the Kernher text, when shared under its actual name, has been one of our most popular Docs, especially when excluding slashfics. We’ve also been sent anecdotal stories about users getting the unexpected download, but enjoying the Kernher read and sharing it with acquaintances.

If you come across another Doc that has the wrong document inside, and would like to let us know, you are welcome to contact us. Remember, our job here is to keep our users happy!

All the best, and Doc On!,
The DocBox Team

See and Hear, Tebu Amkhiham, Tanoo”

Lunarisse Daphiti comments on Allegations she and billionaire philanthropist Franco Phonaga are dating.

“Allegations are definitely not true. We -not- dating. Just friends

Lunarisse Daphiti, with the Capsuleer call-sign Lunarisse Aspenstar, wants to set the record straight.

The Khimi Harar Executrix reacted when suddenly confronted with a paparazzi snap of herself at Ocean Blue Cafe at Tebu Amkhiham in Tanoo with billionaire Franco Phonaga. Mr. Phonaga had recently bid 8 billion ISK for an evening with her at a “charity date” auction. But rather than confirming she has another man in her life, the once beautiful blonde, whose face has been marred by a recent unexplained scar, insisted that the two are “just friends.’’

In an unscripted moment,[she commented on the photo “Last night I was out with my friend and it looks like we are dating but we are definitely not.” She raised her chin. “We were just going out for coffee to discuss mutual business relating to refugees from the Octanneve V affair.”

Lunarisse takes a deep breath and straightens her ruffled feathers: “It shouldn’t bite me in the behind when I go out. I shouldn’t have to answer to people about a picture they see and make assumptions over.”

Commenting further on the rumored recent termination of her engagement with fellow Capsuleer and Amarrian Nobility, Amadin Wa-Sethna, “It’s a very strange time right now with new people in my life and trusting people all over again is very scary” continued Lunarisse, widowed in YC 119 and mother of nine. “I try to just go with the flow and do what makes me happy and follow my God-given vocation that makes my soul sing. I do believe in love and I do believe I will in time find my soulmate but for now I am just enjoying life. And life is busy enough as it is, being Directrix and having a family. I’m healthy and my kids are great and for now that still remains top priority. I pray, pray, pray so hard that the choices I’m making now are right.”
