President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has expressed interest in direct negotiations with the United States of America over its controversial nuclear program. This is a positive step forward towards a peaceful solution between our country and the Islamic Republic. President Ahmadinejad does have terms for the possible negotiations. He declared that if he were to talk, the United States would have to take off its “dishonorable pressure” on the Middle Eastern nation. These comments most likely came in the light of Joe Biden’s recent comments. The vice-president said that he would be open to direct talks with Iran. This is a positive step forward, even though a peaceful solution being found is obviously going to be difficult. The U.S. is unlikely to lift sanctions on Iran and Iran is unlikely to negotiate while they are still under sanctions. This creates a stalemate difficult to break.
There is a big misconcenption of Iran. Whenever people talk about the Islamic government of Iran, they bring up President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. He is the face of Iran, giving speeches in the U.N. and making some very bold statements. However, to think that President Ahmadinejad is in charge is very misleading. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei is the Supreme Leader of the nation. The Supreme Leader and his council can strike down laws they do not approve. President Ahmadinejad is a figurehead to hide the conservative Islamists that truly run the country.
Now on Netflix you can watch the new show “House of Cards.” Although Netflix has many shows online this one is special because the show is made by Netflix and only shown on Netflix. This developmeny is a big step forward for the industry. This is not the first original series the company had; there is also the wacky series named “Lilyhammer” about a mafia man on the run in Norway. This one has had the most fan-fare because it has respected actor Kevin Spacey as the main character. The series is actually a remake of a British miniseries starring Ian Richardson (also available on Netflix). Netlfix could get into the HBO, Showtime, FX, and AMC territory of original series. A big boost may be in store for the already profitable company. More series are on the way including the highly anticipated revival of the cult series “Arrested Development.” Netflix knows in this age that a business must constantly evolve and change. The people in charge of Netflix know if you keep with the status quo could be disastrous. Just look at Blockbuster. Netflix has big plans and I would suggest that you look out for them in the future.
