Actually, Armenians are pretty critical of themselves and the culture. You can sense that in our folk tradition and self criticizing jokes. While Russians crack jokes
about Churkas, Chuckchas, Caucasians(Georgians, Armenians, Azeri) Jewish people, and Americans do Polish jokes, Armenians jokes are in nature self criticizing.
Countless Vanetsi, Abarantsi, Leninakantsi ,Kharabghtsi(Artsax) and Spyurqahaytsi jokes are common in Armenia and in diaspora. And who can forget the unforgettable Tjjvjjik:)

Met Stepan Partamian recently. I found him to be very intelligent and soft-spoken. He recently began a cross-country trip looking for Armenians in the states. He is lecturing and also presenting his book "Yes, we have" along the way. He intends to make a pictorial book of the rare Armenians and towns carrying Armenian names he encounters on this trip. Should be interesting. smile.gif

From what I have heard, I gather that he had personal troubles relating to unpaid alimony and/or child support to the ex-wife that may in some way have hindered his ability to leave the country. Not certain what the exact reason is that he is yet to leave for Armenia.

I used to find him very abrasive and a bully in nature, but upon spending time with him, my personal gut feeling is that he does truly care. I know we deserve and need better "intellectuals" in the community, yet someone like him, with his tactics, is getting through to a certain type of individual. (A friend calls them "Gagos". No offense meant toward anyone named Gagik smile.gif . To get through to them, one must speak their language. No? I think Stepan is attempting to do just that.

PARTAM: All Things Armenian
FREE App to launch by April 24

A TRAVEL GUIDE TO EVERY ARMENIAN DESTINATION
UNDER THE SUN

Feature-rich release provides photos and info about Armenian
destinations across the US, profiles of eminent Armenians



Los Angeles, April 14, 2014 - `Partam: All Things Armenian,' a
powerful app providing a wealth of information about modern Armenian
identity, will be released by April 24, on the occasion of the 99th
anniversary of the Genocide.

The Partam app features high-quality photos and descriptions of Armenian
landmarks and institutions throughout the United States, profiles of
hundreds of eminent Armenian-Americans, and information about numerous
Armenian commercial establishments.

The geographical material is searchable by US city and categories
including Armenian Centers, Schools, Churches, Khachkars, and Genocide
Memorials. Users can click on any entry to see maps and driving
directions. In addition, they can directly connect with their
destinations of choice through the provided phone, Web, and email links.

The Partam app's geographical destinations are complemented by a
treasure trove of information about outstanding Armenian-Americans,
including inventors, scientists, artists, writers, political and
military leaders, athletes, entrepreneurs, and others. The information
includes biographical profiles, photos, and reproductions of US patents.


Partam app users can get registered, create bookmarks, and leave
comments.

`It's all about instilling in our youth an awareness of their
cultural heritage,' said Stepan Partamian, the creator of the app,
which is being offered to the public free of charge.

`I'm launching the Partam app as a major project connected with the
commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the 1915 Genocide,'
Partamian continued. `I am gifting this app, which is the culmination
of ten years of my work, to the Armenian nation, as a tool for Armenians
throughout the world to research and rejoice in their cultural identity,
and also, ultimately, to help bring the worldwide Armenian community
closer together.'

During the past decade, Partamian has traveled throughout the US,
Europe, the Middle East, and elsewhere to research and photograph
Armenian landmarks and institutions. Concurrently, he has compiled a
vast amount of material on Armenian-Americans who have contributed their
talents and inventions to American civilization. His documentary work
has been published in several books (all available at TheArmenian.com),
and is now being made accessible through the Partam app as well.

`At a time when most Armenian organizations are still in protest mode,
planning the same old marches, going through the same routine, I thought
of offering our youth a concrete, progressive, up-to-the-minute tool to
foster in them a powerful awareness of their cultural heritage,'
Partamian said. `My position is, `Yes, we lost 1.5 million
compatriots and we lost our lands, but we gained the world.' The 1915
Genocide was a failed attempt to annihilate our nation. The Partam app
is my answer to that failed attempt; it celebrates our comeback, our
victory, as a people.'

Partamian said that the Partam app will be a `work in progress,' in
the sense that material will be added to it in the months leading up to
April 25, 2015, and enhancements will continue to be made afterwards.

`To date, over $100,000 have been spent on research, traveling, and
photography,' Partamian said. `This is a one-man project, with no
support from any institution. By the time all the photography and
research material I've gathered over the past decade, including
Armenian landmarks and institutions outside the US, is featured on the
Partam app, the total price tag will reach $300,000.'


Initially the Partam app will be available for the iPhone, through the
App Store. Eventually, and with additional funding, Partamian said, the
app will be available for the iPad and Android devices as well.

STEPAN PARTAMIAN LAUNCHES KNOWLEDGE TRUCK PROJECT

Los Angeles, July 27, 2015 -- On Saturday, August 8, Stepan Partamian
will kick off the much-anticipated Knowledge Truck project, a
nationwide, month-long public-awareness campaign that will celebrate
American-Armenian contributions to the United States of America
and humanity.

At the heart of the initiative is the Knowledge Truck, a 12-passenger
van whose interior has been minimally modified to make room for a
mattress. Partamian will travel in the Knowledge Truck throughout
the 48 states of the Contiguous US, making stops at hundreds of
popular venues such as monuments, festival sites, public parks,
and promenades, where the Knowledge Truck will serve as a mobile
information center. At each of these stops, Partamian will set up a
large television screen on the vehicle to show continuous loops of
short videos about outstanding American-Armenians and their works.

The Knowledge Truck will attract spontaneous audiences, Partamian
explained. The videos he will show, each a mini documentary, will
present the rich tapestry of American-Armenian contributions to
American civilization and humanity as a whole, encompassing numerous
fields of endeavor such as art, literature, science, technology,
diplomacy, academia, politics, medicine, journalism, cuisine, and
sports, among others.

Partamian will also be on hand to answer questions from visitors.

Additionally, he will hand out copies of a booklet published specially
for the project, containing additional material about American-Armenian
achievements. Partamian will use the Knowledge Truck as a home away
from home, sleeping in the vehicle at night, to keep project costs
to a minimum, he said.

"Now that commemorations of the centenary of the Armenian Genocide are
over, I'm launching the Knowledge Truck project as an unconventional,
but highly effective, conduit for raising grassroots awareness of
American-Armenian contributions to American civilization and humanity,"
Partamian said. "I think this project is entirely relevant to the
Genocide centenary because most of the individuals featured in my
videos have been Genocide survivors or are children of survivors.

Collectively, they represent the Armenian people's extraordinary
capacity for renewal.

"Many of our non-Armenian fellow Americans know very little about
Armenians," Partamian continued. "The Knowledge Truck project is
designed to help fill that gap, by educating regular Americans --
through a fun, dynamic, and visually engaging medium -- about the
wonderful role that American-Armenians have had and continue to have
in the greatness of America,."

The information that will be disseminated through the Knowledge Truck
has been painstakingly researched and compiled by Partamian in the
course of the past decade. The material is published in Partamian's
Yes, We Have series of books. It's also available on the April 24 App,
which can be downloaded to mobile devices free of charge.

"The April 24 App, as well as the Knowledge Truck project, are my gifts
to the Armenian people," Partamian said. "I think Genocide-centennial
commemorations have their proper place, but ultimately mean little if
we don't take innovative actions that produce tangible results. It's
why I've been working so hard on the Knowledge Truck project, and why I
actually worked on April 24 this year to donate my earnings of the day
to Armenia Fund, in support of their pioneering program to boost the
economies of rural communities in Armenia's Tavush Region. Finally,
I think it's important to remember that my projects are implemented
without any institutional backing, therefore relying on grassroots
support. The down payment on the Knowledge Truck, for instance,
was made possible by small donations, and I'm hoping there will be
additional assistance to offset the cost of the project."

To facilitate community support of the Knowledge Truck initiative,
Partamian has established a nonprofit organization, Knowledge Truck,
Inc., to which tax-deductible donations can be mailed at Knowledge
Truck, Inc., P. O. Box 287, Glendale, CA 91209

Partamian announced that following his month-long road trip across
the 48 states, he will take the Knowledge Truck on a more extensive
tour of California.
