The historic regional neighbors and rivals are among 12 alliance members participating in the Dynamic Mariner-Mavi Balina 22 off the west coast of Turkey.

Relations between Turkey and Greece have deteriorated recently. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan issued a thinly veiled threat of invasion a week ago when he said Turkey could “come suddenly one night” in response to perceived Greek threats.

The neighbors have decades-old disputes over a range of issues, including territorial claims in the Aegean and Mediterranean and disagreements over airspace limits. They have been on the brink of war three times in the last half century.

Ankara claims Greece is violating international agreements by militarizing islands near its coastline, arguing that Greek sovereignty could be challenged if the alleged violations continue. She also accused Greek air defenses of locking in on Turkish warplanes during NATO drills.

Greece has complained about Turkey’s rhetoric to NATO, the European Union and the United Nations. Athens says it must defend its eastern islands against its larger and militarily stronger neighbor.

He also accused the Turkish military of repeatedly violating Greek airspace and waters.

NATO announced the start of the joint exercise from the Aksaz naval base near the Mediterranean resort of Marmaris. War Games runs until September 22.

“Dynamic Mariner is an incredibly important large-scale maritime exercise,” said French Vice Admiral Didier Piaton, Deputy Commander NATO Allied Maritime Command.

“This year’s event includes more assets than ever before, facilitating increased interoperability between our nations and improving operational readiness. We continue to work closely with Turkey and other allies and partners to deter aggression and defend the alliance.

The exercise includes 50 ships, five submarines, five aircraft and 1,500 marines and other personnel.

Newcastle United have agreed a ‘money for nothing’ deal https://otelmoni.com/newcastle-united-have-agreed-a-money-for-nothing-deal/ Tue, 13 Sep 2022 07:00:00 +0000 https://otelmoni.com/newcastle-united-have-agreed-a-money-for-nothing-deal/

Newcastle United have cashed in ‘money for nothing’ with their latest trade deal.

This is the view of financial expert, Dr. Dan Plumley, speaking exclusively to Football Insider on the Tynesiders’ new partnership with Dr. Cinik.

The club revealed last Monday (September 5) that they had reached an agreement with the hair transplant specialists.

The Turkey-based clinic’s branding will feature on St. James’s Park billboards and on the club’s digital social media channels.

Newcastle became the richest club in the world after the Saudi Public Investment Fund took over in October last year.

Their master plan is to increase commercial revenue to meet Financial Fair Play stipulations and fund lavish transfer spending.

Plumley says the deal with Dr Cinik is a simple, no-fuss deal for the Magpies.

“He is one of those who is more for the company than for the club“said the expert from Sheffield Hallam University Football Insiders Adam Williams.

“You can see why a business like this would gain traction given the male-dominated middle-aged audience in English football.

“The benefit for Newcastle is extra money in the bank from the business partnership, and it’s basically money for nothing.

“We always talk about suitability in terms of sponsorship, but that’s just on the business side and the money for Newcastle is just a bonus.”

Newcastle’s shirt front deal with Fun88 is due to expire at the end of the current campaign.

They entered into a cover art sponsorship deal with PIF-linked Noon.com before the start of 2022-23.

In other news, an expert claims the manager should be sacked as a ‘shocking’ claim issued after Newcastle United’s twist.

At the start of EverQuest, a cheater and a designer waged a secret war in a San Diego game store https://otelmoni.com/at-the-start-of-everquest-a-cheater-and-a-designer-waged-a-secret-war-in-a-san-diego-game-store/ Mon, 12 Sep 2022 21:03:19 +0000 https://otelmoni.com/at-the-start-of-everquest-a-cheater-and-a-designer-waged-a-secret-war-in-a-san-diego-game-store/

It’s the year 2000. We’ve managed to avoid technical annihilation at the hands of the Y2K bug, Tina Fey and Seth Meyers are helping SNL stay funny, and somehow every mall has decided that we should all listen to Creed (quiver). But game developer Geoffrey “GZ” Zatkin wasn’t in the cinema watching Remember the Titans – he was standing in legendary San Diego game store Game Empire. (opens in a new tab) watching people play his team’s brand new MMO. That game was EverQuest.

But some people weren’t just playing Everquest, they were breaking it in half.

EverQuest was an experimental game in every sense of the word
