Forever Under Construction

Posted in Iran by homeyra on September 4, 2009

Earlier a friend was enquiring on where to find daily translations of Iranian news. Beside governmental websites and blogs I have already referred to, Enduring America (tag: Iran) and niacInsight have almost daily articles. I am not following any website regularly to have a firm recommendation. Your suggestions are welcomed.

Update: See also Balatarin, an Iranian “digg”. Recently they have added a new page where users can translate headlines.

Opposition body count: Based on a fact-finding committee inquiry, the pro-reformist news website Norooz has published the identity of 72 civilians killed in the aftermath of the elections.

With some help 18 of the 21 cabinet members were approved by the parliament. It includes the first woman in the cabinet since the revolution. Only in Iran this is seen as a set-back for women!

The nomination of a politician who ran the election headquarters during the presidential poll with some disputed academic background as the Minister of Science, research and technology seems rather confrontational toward universities. See also this article.

    this enduring america has lots of excellent translations and they seem to be working around the clock. yek choyi az koja oomadan? I’d never heard of them before.

    Neither did I!
    One needs to hire a detective to find out who is who in the blogosphere. The article you forwarded about Tehran Bureau was sort of trying to play the detective but it sounded like much ado about nothing.
    Check all the wrong fact in this Le Monde article. People at balatarin pointed out all the mistakes.
    Btw balatarin has now an English page.

    about “the disputed background” I think it’s better not to say “some” but “totally” 🙂
