331.25 // Arkania Calls for Tolerance of the Jedi Order and Political Decency

As the debate on the future of the Jedi Order within the Galactic Republic grows, a surprising decree from Arkania has thrown a hydrospanner into the hyperdrive of the vocal Senator Sandria. The technocratic family of Adasca has decreed the immediate removal of Senator Thalias Silme in favour of the AdasCorp Administrator of Research and Development -and family member- Galan Adasca. A short statement from the newly appointed Senator revealed the following:

“Due to what we have observed as shifting political landscapes, we (the family of Adasca, red.) have decided to take a more proactive approach in the matters of Galactic state. I want to personally thank Thalias for his service to the people of Arkania and our family, and wish to assure that he has not fallen from grace, having done so much to push and provide for humanitarian aid to those in need during his time in the Senate.”

The senator, in line with previous comments by Silme, went on to denounce the comments made by the United Republic Coalition deputy leader senator Rita Sandria, claiming her efforts to be akin to ‘fear-mongering’ and will ‘have a sure destabilizing effect to the efforts of the Order which has protected the citizens of the Galaxy for millennia’. He further pointed out ‘an utter tastelessness’ in the utilization of a suicide for gain in the political arena, and asked the people of Corellia ‘to see their politicians with a critical mind.’

He concluded by stating that the people of Arkania will always support the Jedi Order in their efforts to aid those who are in need. Adasca subsequently declared the grounds of the Praxeum on Arkania as unconditionally sovereign soil under management of the Jedi Order, calling upon other planetary governments to issue similar decrees to safeguard the future of the Jedi Order in the Republic.

Sources say that Olim Adasca, Galan Adasca’s father, who has decided to take up the position of Administrator during his son’s political absence, once studied among the ranks of the Jedi Order. More on this story as it develops.

331.22 // Healthy Bacteria Found on Kidron!

Scientists on Kidron have discovered a fungi that contains several types of healthy bacteria. These plants are known locally as one of the staple foods for the native Slorks who roam the swamplands. The bacteria is said to feed off calcium, which the fungus produces. Scientists are in the process of testing if the fungus works to treat calcification in the joints and muscles.

Health Minister of Kidron states, “We have been welcoming the research parties for some time now in a hope they can produce some effective research. This is certainly a breakthrough”.

However, locals worry that this discovery may have a negative impact on the system.

“I don’t want some industry moving in here building over the habitats to harvest the mushrooms. This might be good for others off world but they don’t realise the impact it has on the people who live near the resource”.

Local resident Kirea Xloma is concerned over the potential of the industry affecting the environment. “I agree that there may be some jobs from it, if it develops; but I don’t think thats worth the cost of my home! Been living here for fourty-eight years and I don’t think there’ll be any good of it!”. Armay Yaraness reporting.

331.19 // Problems on Atzerri

The common Pemblehov District has claimed its 34th victim today, in light of a new drug epidemic sweeping the region. The ‘spice’, is a depressant. It attaches to the nervous system and numbs the senses whilst suppressing the user with a feeling of euphoria. It also slows the system so much that it renders it unconscious, often causing users to stop breathing. Its potency is surprising officials, but not the instance of it happening. A statement from municipal minister Drannen Wrep claims, ‘Sadly there’s always been a drug issue in this district but this most definitely not an epidemic. This new drug is much more devastating than ones developed before, but the government is going to provide CR300,000 to purchase new resources in the war on the criminal figures at fault for the recent increase in deaths’.

331.12 // Core Quarantine

Galactic Senate Background
The Senate has just voted to establish a quarantine zone around a large majority of Republic-held systems in the core, in response to the continued outbreaks of the unknown illness. The vote was unanimous, with all Senators acknowledging the severity of the situation.

The continually increasing rate of infection, that has repeatedly surpassed predictions made by the Republic’s top microbiologists, has led to a death toll that continues to skyrocket. Coruscant’s chief medical scientist, Juan Hull, has described the disease as;

“one of the most aggressive viruses in the Galaxy’s recordable history which is showing no sign of slowing down”.

The Jedi Order has come out in support of the quarantine, with its High Council declaring full compliance with the travel limitations and expressed hopes to see the number of deaths quickly subside.

331.10 // The Plague

Today the Secretary for Health, Kov Glorin, informed the people of the Republic the feverish illness is treatable and somewhat preventable, but no cure has been found.

Cases have spread drastically in the core. Consequently, this outbreak is now an epidemic. Take under advisement it is now against Republic law to enter or leave the core worlds under quarantine. The military has been set in place to ensure full cooperation, so the Republic may better contain and study this disease.

Secretary Glorin advised to visit the nearest pharmaceutical center to acquire a rebreather and gloves to better your chances of not obtaining the illness. Cases have shown if it goes untreated, it can possibly result in death. Glorin said he and his health advisers can not determine what the illness is attacking specifically. It starts from the lungs, then spreads in a cancerous manner. Glorin conveyed his deepest sympathies and ensured their drive to find a cure is unrelenting.
