James S. Brady Press Room
Good evening fellow Citizens,
Tonight we have two updates for you, the first on the status of our American Gold Mine, the second, from the Department of Education.
Gold Mine Update:
Chief Economic Correspondent: Kemal Ergenekon
Chairman of the Economics Council, Kemal Ergenekon recently published an article entitled [Ekonomi Politik] Facts on Gold Mine Revenues and Depletion in which he brakes down the expected impact of the Gold Mines on the eRepublik Economy, the government, and the average citizen.
Using advanced statistical analysis he concludes the following:
The average citizen can expect between 1.15 and 1.27 gold (on average) each day that we have a gold mine.
The American gold mine will last between 25 and 27 days.
And lastly the eAmerican government can expect to gain between 7200 and 7900 gold in our country treasury
Department Update: Dept of Education
Contributing Editor George Armstrong Custer
The Department of Education exists solely for the purpose of helping players-- particularly new players, but seasoned players can benefit from the DoE as well. Mazzy Cat the current Secretary of Education, a top Cabinet position whose newspaper is linked in this and every official US Government newspaper. More about Mazzy in a minute.
Most recently, the DoE's newspaper announced a writing contest for new players. This idea was not born out of the Department, but of a good citizen with an idea and the drive and desire to help America. That citizen is Mercurius100, a man of many friends (over 33 thousand!) but few medals-- this is an indication of a player who is not in it for himself.
The writing contest is open to any players born after Jan 15 this year, and the topic of their submissions is: "What one trait do you feel is most important for a eUS President to have?" The best written article will receive an award of 10 gold. Multiple honorable mention awards of 1000 USD each will also be awarded.
I've personally seen some particularly insightful news articles written by noobs, I'm sure the judging won't be easy. Please have a look at the DoE article, "[DoE] Ebabies - Battle of Wits!", and encourage any noobs you know to participate in this contest.
Mercurius100 explains, "Publishing articles in the media is a great but underutilized way for young players to find their niche in the game and have their voices heard. We hope that this contest can encourage more young players to take up journalism."
Like many Cabinet positions, the job is what you make it. Mazzy Cat's pet project has been to bring together all the many resources available to players through the DoE to a single comprehensive list. New players have been led to an edition of Education Today which, while fairly inclusive, still lacks some valuable information. Watch this week for a new article which will have (I've seen the work in progress-- I'm not kidding) over forty links, broken down into groups by general topic, from which any new player can easily find every resource available to them.
Mazzy Cat explains, "New players don't always know where to look for info. This article will help to give them everything they could need to learn the basics, find a good MU & party, things to avoid, and more. Saving them time, and being less frustrating.
Southern Taiwan Resistance War
Deputy Secretary of State NewAzazel
A resistance war has been opened in Southern Taiwan. As a part of our Asian Peace Accord, we are returning this region to Taiwan. Please fight FOR the resistance war and not against it. Taiwan has fulfilled its requirement by returning the South Korean regions they aren't renting. Due to this agreement, South Korea is now a free nation and has access to all its resources again. Now its our turn to uphold our end of the deal, and return Taiwan. I thank you for your cooperation in these efforts. Be aware that there will still be one more resistance war after this that will return Taiwan's last region.
FIGHT FOR TAIWAN IN THE RESISTANCE WAR HERE.
Shout this around:
Fight for ROC Taiwan
We're returning this region per contract.
