Watching the station on a regular television requires the purchase of something called a GLBox and a subscription to a web application called GLWiZ (glwiz.com). Buyers then connect the box to their computers and TVs and can watch anywhere from 40 to 80 channels from around the world. Or they can simply log on to azptv.com and stream the station.
Posts from the Edge
Over the past decade, there’s been an explosion in the number of Iraqi bloggers, both in the U.S. and their home country, with thousands of young Iraqis documenting their daily lives and ongoing struggles in the Middle East. That can be a dangerous proposition in a war-torn region, which is why they formed the Iraqi Network for Social Media (www.i-m-s.dk/content/iraq) to help support each other and raise awareness.
A few of the most popular Iraqi blogs:
-Healing Iraq (healingiraq.blogspot.com): Written by a Baghdad-born dentist now living in Texas.
-Inside Iraq (blogs.mcclatchydc.com/iraq): Updates from Iraqi journalists based in Baghdad who have worked for McClatchy Newspapers.
-Iraqi American Mojo (iraqimojo.blogspot.com): Written by a former Baghdad resident who immigrated to Colorado with his parents.
Dear President Obama
Save Syria Now!, the nonprofit advocacy and action group founded by Dr. M Zuhdi Jasser, wrote “An Open Letter to President Obama” last April. In it, the group expresses concern over the lack of U.S. intervention in the current Syrian uprising and lists a set of demands. These include “immediate economic sanctions to cripple the regime’s ability to inflict harm upon her people,” “All political prisoners of conscience need to be released immediately,” and “The entire Syrian government leadership must resign and welcome U.N. observers to oversee a transition of the current regime out of power with a clear roadmap toward democracy and civilian control of government and military institutions.” To read the full letter and learn more about Save Syria Now!, visit savesyrianow.org
