chattels: GOLALA, Diyala Province — At least seven Peshmerga have been killed by roadside explosives in the abandoned city of Golala in recent months as authorities struggle to deactivate improvised explosives planted by ISIS militants. Local Kurdish officials say the war-torn city needs extra demining experts to remove the remaining mines.
“We have so far been able to eliminate more than 600 handmade explosives,” Muhammad Hasan, a local party official, told Rudaw.
He added that most of the newly found bombs were planted there over eight months ago when the city was still in the hands of ISIS. In the closing days of November last year, a joint Peshmerga and Shiite militia force launched an offensive to recapture both Golala and Saadiya south of Kirkuk.
But authorities have failed ever since to persuade the fleeing locals to return to their areas, partly due to the hidden explosives.

forestnr4: Enjoy My Ladies insight but I can't believe that Nova, being a banker, doesn't know that 1095 is not a rate of any kind, it is the discount price paid for the bond, which is where the 6.1% interest comes from ....when you buy a bond from anywhere,
for example a $2500 bond in this offering, you don't pay $2500 and then get paid $2500 plus the interest at maturity, you just pay less to acquire it and then receive the full $2500 at maturity...
I really can't understand how Nova doesn't know this and they are representing it as a rate...
keli15: Thanks forestnr4 for clarifying that 1095 is not a rate.
