Haitian masses say: No dialogue, no delay, President Moïse must leave

first_imgSince the middle of September, the Haitian masses have made one point over and over again: President Jovenel Moïse must leave — and take all his hangers-on and all his cronies in the Parti Haïtien Tèt Kale (Haitian Party of Baldheads) with him. Translation of Kreyol banner: ‘Stuff has to be changed in the country.’The masses in Port-au-Prince, and the other major cities in Haiti like Gonaïves, Cap-Haïtien and Jeremie, are living on the edge of famine, as the protests have disrupted all kinds of deliveries, including food. Many people aren’t working. Water and health care are scarce. Most schools have either never opened after the summer break or closed since. The United States Embassy, which had a big hand in making Moïse president after receiving only 18 percent of the vote, is proclaiming its support of “dialogue” or “establishing a schedule for an orderly transition.”But students and teachers demonstrating Oct. 25 emphatically answered the U.S., according to the online news service AlterPresse. Georges Wilbert Franck, head of a student and teachers union, said: “We don’t have to take the orders of the American embassy.” A sign at the demonstration, composed primarily of youth, read: “The voice of the people is the voice of liberty and welfare.”Haïti Liberté’s lead article from its Oct. 23-29 edition comments on the strength of the “daily rain of demonstrations,” long and massive, through the streets of Port-au-Prince and other Haitian cities. Over and over again, the Haitian masses make the demand that, at a minimum, the president must leave.The arrests of protesters, and the repression and murder that the cops and the “bald-headed” militias have used — between 10 and 30 people have been shot dead — have not driven people from the streets.On Oct. 13, and again on Oct. 20, huge marches were called by musicians and artists to demand Moïse’s departure. Protestant churches also called their followers out on Oct. 20 and Petionville, a big suburb of Port-au-Prince, was overstuffed with protesters.On Oct. 21, it was the turn of students, their parents and teachers to march, demanding that Moïse resign and schools reopen. On Oct. 22 the Catholic hierarchy, which traditionally has tried to remain apolitical, called its followers out in another massive protest.There are more national protests scheduled for the week beginning Oct. 28. A number of coordinating committees have sprung up, with different constituencies and different scenarios for the coming transition.But one thing is clear. The people have seized on one demand with precise clarity: Moïse must leave.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

“Super” Frogs advance after win over ASU

first_imgTCU removes Phi Kappa Sigma for hazing and other misconduct ReddIt Grant McGalliardhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/grant-mcgalliard/ Facebook Grant McGalliard is a senior journalism and political science major from Bay City, Texas. He’s worked in everything from sports to student organizations at TCU, and recently began blogging with the Dallas Morning News. In his spare time, Grant enjoys tweeting far too much, pretending he knows more than he does about Premier League soccer, and listening to the music of Kanye West. printIn front of a raucous crowd at Lupton Stadium, the TCU Horned Frog baseball team earned a trip on down Highway 6 to College Station with an 8-1 win over Arizona State to clinch the Fort Worth Regional championship.Brian Howard pitched a stellar 8 innings in just 94 pitches and Regional MVP Cam Warner hit his second home run of the weekend in a game that was controlled by the Frogs from the first pitch.Now, with TCU winning and the way the bracket is set up, the Frogs will most likely face Texas A&M this weekend for the right to advance to the College World Series in Omaha.Not, of course, that any of the Frogs would admit that they’re thinking about a potential rematch from last year’s Super Regional with Texas A&M.“I don’t know who we’re playing yet,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said with a grin postgame, before saying that his team was just focused on what gives them “the best chance to win.”“We know we’re gonna face a great club, probably in a great environment, and that’s an awesome life experience, man,” Schlossnagle said.Brian Howard and Cam Warner, flanking their coach in the postgame press conference, echoed his thoughts. All three Frogs managed to avoid calling their potential opponents by name.For now, they can revel in the sixth regional championship for TCU in the last eight years.While the offense carried the Frogs through the season, Schlossnagle was quick to point out that pitching, like it has been for the majority of the last decade of TCU baseball, was the key factor this weekend.“I think one thing that needs to be mentioned is how well we pitched,” Schlossnagle said. “Whether it be Traver and the guys out of the bullpen on Friday, or [Jared] Janczak and Brian [Trieglaff] yesterday, I’m really excited about that.”Howard was ruthlessly efficient on the mound Sunday. Arizona State swung early and often at his pitches, and he was able to get ahead in the count on several batters.Still, when he gave up the lone run in the third inning, it took what Howard described as a “heated” conversation with pitching coach Kirk Saarloos to settle him down.“He had an opinion about how I was pitching that inning, and he was right in hindsight,” Howard said. “But in the heat of the moment, I did not agree with him, so we had a discussion.”Saarloos, Howard said, wanted his right-hander to pitch with more conviction. Whether it was conviction driving him or a breaking ball that the Sun Devils couldn’t seem to get a bat on, Howard proceeded to produce 17 straight outs before being relieved for Brien Trieglaff in the 9th.Howard’s counterpart on the mound, Eder Erives, threw 108 pitches in 7 innings. He gave up 3 runs in the 2nd to the Frogs, but found a groove until being pulled in the 8th inning, giving up just one more run.The Sun Devils brought out their ace, Seth Martinez, to pitch the 8th. That just so happened to be the inning that Cam Warner drove another ball over the left field fence of Lupton Stadium. Martinez was pulled after giving up 4 runs in 2/3 of an inning.TCU fans await the results of the College Station Super Regional. At press time, the Aggies lead 4-1 over Minnesota in the bottom of the sixth.Though, as Schlossnagle insists, that’s the farthest thing from the Frogs’ mind.

YouTube completes a year of being blocked in Turkey

first_imgNews May 5, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 YouTube completes a year of being blocked in Turkey April 2, 2021 Find out more TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Organisation Reporters Without Borders condemns the fact the video-sharing website YouTube has been inaccessible in Turkey for the past 12 months. Access has not been restored since it was blocked exactly one year ago today as a result of three orders issued by Ankara magistrate courts without any specific reason being given.“The blocking of YouTube has gone on long enough,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the Turkish authorities to amend their legislation regulating Internet use instead of than arbitrarily censoring content. Such behaviour is unworthy of a country that claims to be democratic and makes us very concerned for the future of the Internet in Turkey. We call for the revision of the three court orders that led to this unwarranted blocking.”Pointing out that access to Dailymotion, Myspace and Geocities has also been banned in Turkey, the head of Turkey’s Association of Internet Technologies (INED), Mustafa Akgul, said: “We need to get away from this instinctive tendency to censor, which threatens the Internet as a space for expression.”Akgul added: “In response to complaints about insults or copyright violations or other matters, a court anywhere in Turkey can suspend access to a website as a preventive measure, without referring to an expert and without giving the website a chance to defend itself (…) An Internet filtering mechanism could be established, but the state should leave this to the country’s citizens. Members of civil society can have a place in this process.”An Ankara magistrate court issued orders on 24 and 30 April 2008 for the blocking of YouTube without giving its grounds for these decisions. Another Ankara magistrate court issued a similar order on 5 May 2008.Law 5651 on “the organisation of online publications and combating offences committed by means of such publications,” in force since November 2007, enables prosecutors to block access to websites within 24 hours if their content is deemed liable to incite suicide, paedophilia, drug usage, obscenity or prostitution or violate a law forbidding any attacks on the memory of the Turkish republic’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.YouTube said its editors withdrew the videos that appear to have prompted these court decisions but the site has continued to be inaccessible. The current blocking is YouTube’s fourth in Turkey since early 2007.

Defamation case verdicts postponed in Tempo and Supinya Klangnarong cases

first_img Melanesia: Facebook algorithms censor article about press freedom in West Papua September 10, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Defamation case verdicts postponed in Tempo and Supinya Klangnarong cases On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia August 21, 2020 Find out more News to go further Dear Secretary-General,The international press freedom organisation Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) seeks to draw your attention to the cases of Thai journalist Supinya Klangnarong and editor of Indonesian weekly Tempo, Bambang Harymurti, both at risk of heavy sentences on 6 September 2004.We believe the penalties called for in both cases to be excessive and in contradiction with international and regional declarations on free expression.We remind you that ASEAN’s founding statement in 1967 called on member states to respect “justice and the rule of law”. It is your duty to remind governments of member states of their commitments. It is all the more regrettable that these trials are taking place in two countries, Indonesia and Thailand, that are often held up as models within ASEAN for their respect for free expression.It will be a major step backwards for freedom of expression in South East Asia if on 6 September severe penalties are imposed on these two journalists.The central court for the Jakarta district will rule on the case of Bambang Harymurti, chief editor of the weekly Tempo, who is at risk of a two-year jail sentence with immediate effect for “defamation”. The trial follows a complaint made by businessman Tomy Winata who objected to an article in the 3 March 2003 issue speculating that he might have been behind a fire at a textile market.In Thailand, Supinya Klangnarong, General Secretary of the Campaign for Popular Media Reform, is also facing a defamation trial. The case relates to an article carried in the daily Thai Post on 16 July 2003 in which the journalist commented that the profits of Shin Corp had increased significantly since its founder Thaksin Shinawatra became prime minister. She is at risk of a 400 million baht (around 8 millions euros) fine.We urge you to use your influence with these countries’ authorities to see that they respect freedom of the press in both these cases.More generally, Reporters Without Borders calls on you to promote reform of libel laws in ASEAN member states so as to abolish prison sentences and swingeing fines. The organisation reminds you that in January 2000, the UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Opinion and Expression stated in very clear terms that “imprisonment as punishment for the peaceful expression of an opinion constitutes a serious violation of human rights.” IndonesiaAsia – Pacific RSF_en Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years IndonesiaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information In Thailand, lawyers for Shin Corp, the company owned by the family of Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra, won a postponement until July 2005 of the criminal defamation case against press freedom activist Supinya Klangnarong (photo) and two journalists of the daily Thai Post. The trial will therefore be held after the February 2005 legislative elections.At the end of September, Thai courts are due to rule on the admissibility of Shin Corp’s civil action. If the complaint is not rejected, Klangnarong could be sentenced to a fine of ten million euros.________________________________________________________31.08.2004Journalists face disproportionate sentences in libel trialsOpen letter to the Secretary-General of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN)His Excellency Ong Keng Yong, Secretary-General, Association of South East Asian Nations , Jakarta, IndonesiaParis, 31 August 2004center_img News News News Indonesia’s central court in Jakarta has postponed until 16 September 2004 its verdict in the defamation case against Tempo editor Bambang Harymurti (photo). The judges will give their verdicts on the same day in the cases of journalists Ahmad Taufik and Teuku Iskandar Ali, who were named in the same case. The editor risks four years in prison and his colleagues could be sentenced to two years.Before the postponement was announced, Teuku Iskandar Ali and Ahmad Taufik were allowed to address the court. Taufic pleaded for an acquittal: “Please do not imprison me,” he said. “I already know what prison is like. Please don’t sentence me to pay a fine because I can’t afford it,” said the journalist, who was imprisoned under the Suharto regime in 1994.

Tax Reform Bill Could Impact University of Evansville Endowment

first_imgDECEMBER 17TH, 2017  BRITNEY TAYLOR EVANSVILLE, INDIANA Lawmakers in Washington D.C. are still wrestling with the details of the new tax reform bill, some of which could have a negative impact on higher education.The bill proposes a 1.4% excise tax on endowments, which would affect scholarships for many students.Schools with an endowment of $250,000 per part-time student and $500,000 per full-time student would be affected.Although the endowment at UE isn’t high enough to be affected, officials say the future is still a concern.Donna Teague said, “We would hope that our lawmakers would see that, and make the right decisions to help higher ed and our students because as you know, higher education is very important. It’s important that students get a degree to help them in the future. So we need to try to make higher ed as affordable as possible.”Kentucky Wesleyan’s endowment is also not high enough to be affected.Negotiations on the new tax reform bill are still ongoing.Britney TaylorWeb ProducerMore Posts – Website FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Cheryl Musgrave as an out and out liar. She knows nothing about how the Burdette Parks Director was hired because she was not on the commission. She was out trying to start trouble somewhere else then. I, however, was a commissioner with the Honorable Stephen Melcher and the Honorable Joe Kiefer. All three of us interviewed Mr. Murphy and I checked on him with my contacts in Louisville. We were lucky to be able to hire him. Musgrave has botched this entire issue and now says it was the previous commissioners. She has lied so much she can’t determine what is true and what is not. And she will throw anyone under the bus to get what she wants. Too bad the State of Indiana didn’t want her so we got her back.last_img read more
