Landons nana: Q for chattels: [when does the holiday end?]
Chattels: Sistani says that the holiday begins on the 5th, the Kurds have declared the 8th...the CBI shows the Eid as a four day holiday...the Kurds are talking about a full week...so like many things in Iraq, there is no uniform or universal answer to your question.
Landons Nana: tlm724: Article quote: "According to Najib, the "head of the government committed itself to solving the outstanding problems with the Kurdistan including the salaries of the staff of the region", and followed that "negotiations and dialogues between the federal government and Kurdistan is still ongoing, and in the case to reach an agreement, it will accelerate in the enrollment Minister Kurds cab of government."
it is all coming together! not quite as quickly as we wanted but still it's tremendous progress for sure. Quote: "in the case to reach an agreement, it will accelerate in the enrollment Minister Kurds cab of government." that would be an inclusive GOI!
Iko Ward: Looks like Dong traded last night. dinar pinged this morning. I'll check again around ten to see if there's any movement. Guessing wel won't get anything until after banks close but who knows. As gandhi once said, Relax, nothing is under control.
Normanros: Baghdad-where] Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi he is looking with House Speaker Salim al-Jubouri, the possibility of a hearing before the holiday of Eid al-Adha to label the Minister of Interior and Defense.

We need to talk tonight ..........C U on Your CC in ........ SooM.......
“Frank26 is at “White alert”
Team Alert Colors (meant for Frank's teams, but also an indicator for the peanut gallery): We have been in "Condition Red" for awhile. This means that there isn't specific information available relating to a time frame, but everything seems to be lined up.
"Condition White" is an elevated state of readiness indicating that there is specific information that leads to believe that the event we are looking for is more likely to occur during this time period. If we don't see anything during this time frame, I'm sure the team will re-evaluate the alert level and update as needed.
Overall, this is very encouraging for us during the next 6 days to research/study articles.
Picture a deer in the woods that heard, saw, smelled something that is different and you see their ears perk up, they freeze all activity and become hyper-alert to what is going on. That is how I see "Condition White".
Lloyds dismisses eight staff over Libor Posted by Red Pill on September 29, 2014

Lloyds is still 25% owned by the government
Lloyds Banking Group has dismissed eight staff members following an investigation into the manipulation of some key interest rates set in London.
The move follows the bank's £218m fine in July for "serious misconduct" over the setting of Libor.
Chair Lord Blackwell said the actions of those responsible for the misconduct were "completely unacceptable".
Lloyds, which is 24.9% owned by the government, said the individuals had also forfeited £3m in unpaid bonuses.
The bank said its remuneration committee would now ensure the outcome of the disciplinary process was "fully and fairly reflected" in other staff bonus payments.
Regulators found that Lloyds manipulated the London interbank offered rate (Libor) for yen and sterling and tried to rig the rate for yen, sterling and the US dollar.
It was also found to have manipulated submissions for another short-term rate linked to the value of UK government debt.

Libor - what is it and why do we care?
Explaining the Libor scandal
Lloyds said Monday's disciplinary action followed July's fine by the UK-based Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and a US-based trading commission.
However, it said it had been unable to take disciplinary action against " a number of individuals" who had already left the bank before the settlements.
Lloyds Banking Group chief executive Antonio Horta-Osorio said the bank was committed to preventing this type of behaviour happening again.
"We are determined to make Lloyds Banking Group a company of the highest integrity and standards," he added.
In July, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney said the attempted manipulation was "highly reprehensible" and could lead to criminal action against those involved.
Lloyds also said it had shared the outcome of its disciplinary process with City regulator the Financial Conduct Authority and other relevant authorities.
