  1. Everyone has their own opinion and thoughts on these matters. Time will tell. I'm not banking on anything happening today, this week or next but I'm not buying the 5-10 year theory either. The Central Bank has a date and it will be then. It will be without warning and it had been repeated said that there will be mixed messages about the time of an RI/RV. So why try to discourage people here while beating down others? Take life as it comes, that's all you can do anyway. Just don't rain on other people's parade. Guru's speculate. That is their job...you're here for the same reason. Again, time will tell on itself, who is right. Meanwhile. Why can't we be friends?
  2. When it RV's I'm gonna get me one of those Bar Stools. I think I'll be able to afford one. 😁
  3. I'll bet a dollar to a donut, that ain't all the World Bank wants to clean in Iraq!
  4. Thanks Yota. So, he wants paint too huh? Who is he trying to paint in a corner?
  5. With the World Bank involved, it can't be all that bad. 😀 Setting the stage for improved education outcomes in Iraq |APRIL 29, 2022 This page in: Image /sites/default/files/styles/hero/public/2022-04/iraq_uni_students_resized_1.png?itok=COM9KhYq Young women students sit in class in Iraq. Low learning levels are putting the future of Iraqi children and, as a result, the future of the whole country at risk. The development of human capital, necessary for sustainable economic growth, has been in decline for years. An early grade reading assessment (EGRA) found the vast majority of students in grades 2 and 3 did not comprehend age-appropriate materials. Even prior to COVID-19, Iraqi children lagged well behind their peers in human capital development measured by the World Bank’s Human Capital Index. A child born in Iraq today will reach, on average, only 41% of her potential productivity when she grows up. Of an average seven years spent in school, the amount of learning that is taking place is only 4 years. The decline has been exacerbated by COVID-19 with more than 11 million students set back by school closures and limited opportunities for remote learning. Reform of the sector is essential to address the shortcomings of education and revive its focus on learning. In 2019, the Government of Iraq (GOI) approached members of the Iraq Reform, Recovery & Reconstruction Fund (I3RF), which is managed by the World Bank, co-chaired by the Ministry of Planning (MOP), and supported by Canada, Germany, Sweden, and the United Kingdom, to help the GOI develop a comprehensive reform agenda that is driven by evidence-based policy making. The Ministry of Education (MOED) and the World Bank agreed on a set of analytical and technical support. Three key lessons have emerged from this close collaboration: 1. Linking technical support to capacity-building is vital for a lasting development impact Over the last two and a half years, support has focused on institutional capacity-building with an approach that balances “new strategies to shape future direction” with “new ideas for more efficient education sector spending.” Key among these is the recently completed, 10-year National Education Strategy, and school infrastructure and teacher policies that are about to be adapted by MOED. These policies are expected to have a positive impact on improving the management of teachers and schools, the sector’s largest expenditures. In addition, a national assessment system for regular evaluation of learning has made considerable progress towards achieving evidence-based decision making on improving curricula and teaching. In all of these activities, the World Bank team focused on capacity-building, ownership, and accountability at the MOED, which is instrumental to sustainable recovery and reforms. Actionable recommendations for more efficient education sector spending lies at the heart of the World Bank’s Human Development Public Expenditure Review. As a result of that, a Competitive Fund Pilot, which started as a capacity-building activity and has been incorporated into a new investment project, is a game changer to financing higher education more effectively and efficiently. Through calls for proposals and a transparent selection process, it incentivizes institutions to address quality/relevance issues of their programs, foster partnerships with the private sector, encourage innovation, and support national development priorities. 2. Flexibility and strong partnerships are key to overcoming obstacles and address emerging needs The I3RF financing comes with extensive flexibility for responding to emerging needs quickly. This has allowed the World Bank’s partnership with the MOED to evolve and strengthen over time. The Iraqi education sector is used to the need of adaptation and creative adjustments due to frequent crises including the COVID pandemic, which also hit Iraq very hard. These unforeseen events made it important to develop a coherent education reform plan that translates the national development priorities into actionable short- and medium-term measures to promote better access, equity, and quality of education. However, their implementation is not easy due to capacity constraints. A strong partnership between MOED and the World Bank has helped overcoming some implementation roadblocks. For example, the Education Service Delivery Indicator survey had to be delayed while schools were closed. The survey, the first one of its kind in Iraq, which assesses key factors at the school level such as teachers, principals and the learning environment, is expected to deliver insights into student learning and the delivery of education services. Through this partnership several implementation problems could be resolved quickly, resulting in the completion of most of the data collection by now. 3. Building capacity and filling knowledge gaps chart the way forward Although the technical support financed by the I3RF has laid the groundwork for better policies, there is an urgent need for more investment. The groundwork creates a base for scaling up with national budget or donor funding. Several projects are springing up as a result: The Innovations Toward Learning in Lagging Governorates Project is about to be approved. Its objective is to enhance teaching practices of more than 3,000 Arabic and Mathematics teachers and to improve literacy and numeracy skills of more than 300,000 vulnerable students in the three most vulnerable governorates. Another recently approved project, the Support to Tertiary Education Project, will help the Ministry of Higher Education and Research develop its institutional capacity of tertiary education in areas aligned with national development priorities, such as agriculture and renewable energy. While challenges remain to improve learning for all Iraqi children, the I3RF has been instrumental in supporting the MOED in designing policies, strategies, and diagnostic tools. These efforts set the stage for better learning outcomes and sustainable economic growth for generations to come. https://blogs.worldbank.org/arabvoices/setting-stage-improved-education-outcomes-iraq
  6. You're welcome Longtimelurker. The timing of this bust is very suspicious......
  7. I think you just may be on to something Nanna....lol
  8. I just viewed this video and thought I don't know where it belongs on this forum, I found it to be very interesting that it should happen and be reported at this time.... Silver coins schemers smuggled Iraqi dinars into Canada by: Angela Kennecke Posted: Apr 18, 2022 / 06:03 PM CDT Updated: Apr 19, 2022 / 10:10 AM CDT SHARE SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A New Mexico man who was a federal fugitive after failing to show up for his sentencing in federal court in February in Sioux Falls finally learned his fate today. Our KELOLAND News Investigation has been following the bizarre case of the “Silver Coin Schemers” for months. We’ve also uncovered that these same players smuggled millions of dollars of the Iraqi currency, dinar, into Canada, before being caught for their antics in the United States. John Winer will go to prison for 22 years for roles in a $12 million international fraud case with victims in South Dakota and across the country. You may remember that the case involved a mansion in Norway, millions of dollars in silver coins, and a sales pitch to victims appealing to Christian values. Winer told the judge in court he was a sovereign citizen and that the U.S. federal court had no jurisdiction over him. Prosecutors pointed out that Winer filed a 2019 tax return for $1 in order to get COVID-19 stimulus money The judge called Winer’s manifesto gibberish and noted that the never showed any remorse for the millions he took from his victims, funneling it into the scheme and spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on himself. John Winer Criminal mastermind, Nathan Peachey, was sentenced to 25 years in prison. but KELOLAND Investigates has discovered that the silver coin scheme was not his first. According to this 2016 article in the Canadian National Post, Peachey was a central figure in “The tale of a mysterious mound of Iraqi cash seized at the border, and the oddball cast that’s fighting for it.” The Royal Canadian Mounted Police seized 24 boxes of Iraqi dinar worth more than $7 million at the Canadian/US border. The driver of the vehicle was a former highway patrolman who told Canadian officers that he had joined a religious group called Jericho Outreach, which was run by Nathan Peachey. Investor money was used to buy the dinars. The article says the coins’ owners were traced back to Nathan Peachey, who lead a “sovereign citizen” group in the U.S., and the man who called himself “The General,” who was also charged in the silver coin investor scheme and presided over the Norwegian mansion. “The General,” or Lorin Rosier, died last year. The National Post reports that Peachey unsuccessfully tried to get the millions in Iraqi currency back and in Canadian court filings said that his Noah’s Ark Foundation launched a “one-time special project” called the Dinar Exchange Project in August of 2012 among “various friends, relatives, and their friends and relatives and associates.” Nathan Peachey was sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for his role in the scheme Peachey represented himself in a Canadian court, much like he did here, in federal court at his February sentencing. The Canadian government held onto the Iraqi dinars and at last report, still has them. Meanwhile, Fredrick Arias, a former law enforcement officer remains on the FBI’s most-wanted list for his role in the silver coin case. The FBI believes he’s in Canada. The General’s wife, Lubova Burkute was extradited from Norway to Sioux Falls to also face charges in the silver coin case. https://www.keloland.com/news/investigates/silver-coins-schemers-smuggled-iraqi-dinars-into-canada/

  10. I don't know if this has been posted anywhere else here but I found yhis to be very interesting. Since it directly involves the IQD, I wanted to at least share it with everyone. I pray God's Blessing upon each and everyone of you here. The IQD Investment Breaks SEC/Wall Street’s Wealth Formula In our most recent video on the Educational Matrix Channel, we talked about how the US government’s SEC: Security Exchange Commission, limits the amount of money every day people can invest. While this is a good thing, it keeps investors from spending the rent money while gambling on news startup companies, it also limits the profits a person can earn based on their annual income and net worth. The SEC policy is that individuals or households cannot invest more than 10% of their annual salary or 10% of their net worth. The formula for Net Worth is Assets minus Liabilities When it comes to the Iraqi Dinar Investment, many investors who invested ten years ago spent between $800 to $1,100 USD for approximately 1 million Iraqi Dinars. If those same dinars were to suddenly equal $0.25 US cents to one Iraqi Dinar, that would be $250,000 in profits. I realize the financial world speaks in percentages to express profits, however, when you look at the actual numbers then you see just how out of alignment the Iraqi Dinar investment is to Wall Street’s every day wealth formula. Many bankers, economist and investors cannot believe this type of profit margin, thus they simply say, the Iraqi Dinar investment is not plausible. Yet Kuwait‘s currency went from very little to $3.30 USD to one Kuwait Dinar in a very short period of time. I guess wall street forgot about that financial event. Watch the video to learn how wealth is limited and built and how the Iraqi Dinar investment could be a duplicate of the Kuwait currency event https://retiredexpat.medium.com/the-iqd-investment-breaks-sec-wall-streets-wealth-formula-23aa6f8f78d7
