first_img “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Determining when the next stock market crash will happening is an exceptionally difficult task. This year’s market downturn showed that they often appear without any warning.However, the track record of the stock market shows they happen fairly regularly. As such, it may be a good idea to start preparing for the next one today. This may help an investor to take advantage of temporarily low prices to generate high returns in the likely long-term recovery.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Another stock market crashThe 2020 stock market crash is not an isolated occurrence. In fact, equity investors are likely to experience a number of market downturns, corrections and bear markets during their lifetimes. The stock market is dependent on cycles that can sometimes cause significant declines in its value over short periods of time.Of course, the stock market has delivered high-single-digit annual gains over the long run. However, its progress has been disrupted numerous times by periods of decline. So, investors who can prepare themselves for periods when lower share prices are available may be able to capitalise on undervalued stocks. Buying a company when it trades at a discount to its intrinsic value is a good move. It may mean there is greater scope for capital growth over the long run, as investor sentiment and operating conditions can improve.Short-lived market declinesThis year’s stock market crash also showed how quickly downturns can take place. For example, the S&P 500 declined by over 30% in little over a month as investors became increasingly concerned about the prospects for the economy.Furthermore, stock prices rebounded extremely quickly. In fact, within 11 weeks of reaching its lowest point in March 2020, the S&P 500 had gained over 40%. As such, investors who were not prepared for a market decline would have found it extremely difficult to respond. This may have meant that they missed out on low stock prices that ultimately were not available for very long.Heightened risksThe potential for a stock market crash appears to be relatively high at the present time. Risks such as Brexit and the coronavirus pandemic may weigh on investor sentiment over the coming months.As such, preparing today for the next market decline may be a good idea. Investors may wish to hold some cash within their portfolio so that they are in a position to react to temporary low prices. They may also wish to conduct due diligence into prospective purchases now so that they are ready to go ahead and buy them should their prices move to more attractive levels. And, it may also be a good idea for investors to check that their existing holdings continue to have investment appeal after what has been a challenging year.By preparing for the next stock market crash, an investor can put themselves in a better position to capitalise on it. Over time, this may lead to higher returns as the market recovers.

first_imgCardiff Blues No 10 Jarrod Evans talks through his breakthrough moment, attacking instincts and kicking on LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Get to know Wales fly-half Jarrod EvansDuring Wales’ last autumn campaign, Warren Gatland recounted how Jarrod Evans had introduced himself to the squad: “He mentioned it was about time he was here considering he had been playing in front of Gareth (Anscombe) for the last two years.”Gatland appreciated the show of confidence from the young fly-half, who insists it was all done in “good spirits”, and Evans duly won his first cap off the bench against Scotland. That is one of three career highlights he lists, the other obvious one being Cardiff Blues’ European Challenge Cup final triumph last year, particularly given its comeback nature. Yet it is the third that provides the best insight into Evans.He rewinds to September 2017 and a Guinness Pro14 match in Connacht. He came off the bench late on, replacing Steve Shingler, and converted Willis Halaholo’s last-minute try to give the Blues a 17-15 victory. The kick came in front of less than 5,000 people – a far smaller crowd than his other two highlights – and could not be described as significant in terms of the Blues’ overall season, but it was hugely significant in terms of his own.“That’s the moment I always look back to,” he says. “I went on my best run of games from there; it kick-started things. I got the opportunity to play and it helped me develop. I probably learnt the most that year – the longest period I’d played at a regional standard.”International stage: Jarrod Evans during a Wales training session (Getty Images)Game time is key for any player, but particularly one responsible for leading a team’s attack; you learn to make decisions under pressure and adapt to different situations. Evans gained valuable experience as a teenager, playing for Pontypridd at 17 and making his Blues debut at 18, but it is over the past two seasons that he has flourished.It’s the flair element that Evans brings to the Blues, the ability to make breaks and pose threats to opponents, that has so endeared him to supporters. As his regional coach John Mulvihill says, he “will roll the dice”, with conservatism not an option, and Evans clearly relishes the chance to take charge of the creative process.“I like to play what’s in front of me and take control of the attacking side of the game, organising the boys around me and what we do.“I enjoy playing with my mates at the Blues. There are about 12 of us who have come through the age groups, so we know each other’s games and the squad is quite settled. There’s a chemistry.” He can kick it: Jarrod Evans puts boot to ball for Cardiff Blues (Getty Images) This article originally appeared in the June 2019 edition of Rugby World magazine.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. TAGS: Cardiff Blues Next season Wales wings Josh Adams and Hallam Amos will be added to the region’s chemical equation. With Owen Lane and Aled Summerhill in high-scoring form in this campaign, the Blues will have threats aplenty out wide.Eyes on the prize: Jarrod Evans stretches to take a pass (Getty Images)“They’re pretty big names, especially on the international stage,” says Evans, who is a big fan of Manchester United and the NRL outside of rugby union.“When you see some of the European squads you see the depth you need to win things. They’re both exciting players with ball in hand and it shows the club has real ambition and wants to get to the next level.”Evans points to two people for helping him take his own game up a level: Matt Sherratt and Nicky Robinson. Sherratt, who swapped Blues for Ospreys in the summer of 2018, helped Evans with his game management while former Wales fly-half Robinson provided kicking advice.“Technically he helped a lot. He changed one or two things with my technique and I’ve put a lot of work into that since. With Wales, Neil Jenkins has given me pointers too. Kicking is probably the thing I needed to improve on.”While Evans has impressed many with his fleetness of foot and varied vision, he still has fewer than five minutes of Test experience. Yet with Anscombe’s ACL injury ruling him out of the World Cup, Evans is set to get a chance to prove his credentials for a place on the plane to Japan by coming off the bench against England in Wales’ second warm-up match this weekend.last_img read more


first_img Ospreys v Leinster live stream: How to watch from anywhereIt doesn’t seem to matter whether Leinster are missing a shedload of players – they plough through every opponent regardless. Monday night’s 32-19 defeat of Glasgow was their 23rd successive Guinness Pro14 win in a run that spans 561 days and counting.Leo Cullen has made two changes to the side that won under the Scotstoun floodlights for today’s round-five encounter in Swansea (3pm). Loosehead Michael Milne makes his first start for the reigning champions after 11 games off the bench.And former Wallaby Scott Fardy replaces Devin Toner in the second row. Fellow lock Ross Molony, 26, makes his 100th senior appearance for the province.Ospreys have won just one of their previous ten meetings with Leinster. After a wretched 2019-20 season, they are blowing hot and cold this time. Their latest result was a 23-17 defeat at Zebre, when they lost the turnover count nine to one.Centurion: Ross Molony plays his 100th match for a team unbeaten in the league since April 2019 (Inpho)Back-row Will Griffiths makes his first Pro14 start for the Welsh outfit, while ex-Wales U20 lock Rhys Davies will make his league and Ospreys debut if deployed from off the bench.Leinster’s winning run must end some time but it’s unlikely to happen today. Ospreys head coach Toby Booth said: “I’m less worried about Leinster and where they are in their journey as a team. Everyone knows how good they are, they are the market leaders in the Pro14.“Everyone knows they are there to aspire to but we can’t control them. I’m more interested in what we do and how we respond from last week.”Related content: Leinster analysed and Booth’s vision for Ospreys, November issue of RWToday’s match at Liberty Stadium brings a family rivalry of sorts because Rhys Ruddock – in typically robust form – captains Leinster while dad Mike is Ospreys’ development director.Ospreys were competitive when the teams last met in February, going down 21-13 in the Gnoll rain.

It will produce “scholars…uniquely prepared to teach the next generation of the church’s ministers,” said a statement by Mark Toulouse, principal of Emmanuel College.Importantly, the program will respond to what educators perceive as a gap between academic experience and hands-on ministerial work. “There’s a disconnect between what students are learning in the academy and how they can use that knowledge or skill set,” says Natalie Wigg-Stevenson, director of the new TFM program as well as the Contextual Education programs. [See excerpts from the interview here.]Eight doctoral students with scholarly and practical skills will “stimulate the imagination of ministers-in-training and have a more theological approach to the work that they’re doing,” said Wigg-Stevenson in an interview. The hope is that the program “will have a larger impact for God’s work in the world,” she told the Journal.Canadians in the pews are “really hungry for the spirituality of Jesus,” says Wigg-Stevenson, and the TFM program will help ministers address this need. It also paves the way for cross-border discussions about theological education.“The multi-cultural, significantly post-Christian culture in Toronto provides an ideal testing ground for developing the types of practices required for ministry in the 21st century,” she says. “We are excited to be able to offer a Canadian perspective to ongoing conversations taking place among American theological schools doing similar work.”Programs such as TFM “…that creatively combine scholarship and ministry, and theory with practice–represent the future of theological education,” said David Csinos, one of the first TFM Fellows, in a statement.— Marites N.

Il les a exhorté à poursuivre ce dialogue après son départ.Le révérend John Floberg a dit à Curry que l’action menée contre l’oléoduc est « un temps de kairos », un mot grec qui signifie un temps fixé par Dieu pour agir. C’est un temps porteur d’espoir, a déclaré Floberg, prêtre supervisant les églises épiscopales de la partie du Dakota du Nord de Standing Rock, car « Dieu est à l ‘œuvre ici », bien au-delà des protestations en cours.Il se trouve que les indiens de Standing Rock et les membres et leaders d’au moins 250 des tribus reconnues aux États-Unis se sont retrouvés pour une manifestation d’unité sans précédent. Beaucoup de non-indiens ont rejoint les protestataires, y compris des épiscopaliens d’autres parties du pays.Pour beaucoup, c’est l’occasion de revoir leur façon habituelle de communiquer entre eux, dans le cadre de cette contestation dont un certain nombre estime qu’elle porte atteinte à la part de l’économie de l’État qui dépend de l’extraction des ressources naturelles, en particulier le pétrole et le gaz et aux emplois qui seront créés par la construction de l’oléoduc. Energy Transfer Partners, la société basée à Dallas qui construit l’oléoduc, annonce que sa construction créera de 8,000 à 12,000 emplois au niveau local, alors que le AFL-CIO n’estime leur nombre qu’à 4 500.Le 25 septembre, l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry réagit après avoir appris que les gens de l’Église épiscopale St. James de Cannon Ball, Dakota du Nord, s’étaient rassemblés à l’église le 1er novembre 2015, pour regarder la diffusion de son intronisation en tant que 27e évêque Primat de l’Eglise Episcopale. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service« Dieu s’occupe de mouvements » a déclaré Curry, lors de son sermon du 25 septembre, à l’église épiscopale de Canon Ball dans le Dakota du Nord. « Si vous regardez attentivement la Bible, vous découvrirez que la façon habituelle pour Dieu de changer le monde – même si ce n’est que de manière infime – est d’initier un mouvement de personnes qui suivront sa voie ».L’Evêque Primat a cité Abraham et Sarah qui comme il l’a dit, ont été appelés par Dieu à partager leur mode de vie avec d’autres. Le mouvement de peuples qu’ils ont initié est à l’origine du Christianisme, du Judaïsme et de l’Islam, a-t-il dit. Il compare le mouvement des opposant à l’oléoduc à l’action de Moïse, guidant les Hébreux vers la Terre Promise.Curry parle des fléaux infligés par Dieu au Pharaon pour contrer son refus de libérer les Hébreux opprimés.« Voilà, c’est Standing Rock dans la Bible. C’est une population qui tient tête et qui dit ne polluez pas notre eau ». C’est la population de Standing Rock qui dit ne violez pas nos sites funéraires sacrés ».Et il y a le mouvement créé par Jésus, dit Curry, un mouvement de personnes appelé à pratiquer l’amour, la justice, la compassion et qui essayent « de ressembler un peu à Jésus ».« J’ai le sentiment que si nous commencions à ressembler un peu à Jésus, vous n’auriez pas à manifester ici à Standing Rock car la voie de Jésus honore l’eau », à travers l’acte du baptême.La visite du Camp d’Oceti Sakowin La veille, Curr, Floberg, Heidi J. Kim, missionnaire de l’Église épiscopale responsable de la réconciliation raciale, le révérend Charles A. Wynder Jr., missionnaire pour la justice sociale et les engagements militants, le révérend Michael Hunn, chanoine de l’Evêque Primat pour le ministère au sein de l’Église épiscopale, John Tarrant, évêque du Dakota du Sud et Mark Narum, évêque du Synode du nord-ouest du Dakota d’ELCA se sont rendus au Camp d’Oceti Sakowin, situé le long de la rivière Cannonball proche de l’endroit où elle se jette dans la rivière Missouri. (Michael Smith, évêque du Dakota du Nord était à l’étranger pour un voyage prévu antérieurement).Curry s’est entretenu avec les opposants à l’oléoduc, qui préfèrent se faire appeler « protecteurs » au cours de la séance d’information journalière qui a lieu sur le camp. Il leur a annoncé que l’Église épiscopale était solidaire avec eux car « l’eau est un don du créateur ».« L’eau représente la vie pour tous les enfants de Dieu, les êtres humains qui sont des dons du créateur » a dit Curry, en ajoutant « votre lutte n’est pas seulement votre lutte, c’est la nôtre ; c’est la lutte de la communauté humaine ».Cet oléoduc de près de 1 886 kms et d’un diamètre de 76 cm acheminera l’équivalent de près de 570 000 barils de pétrole brut léger non sulfureux par jour, depuis les gisements de Bakken et les zones de production de Three Forks dans le Dakota du Nord jusqu’à Patoka, dans l’Illinois. L’Army Corps d’ingénieurs des États-Unis a délivré, le 26 juillet, les permis autorisant la construction de l’oléoduc.Les opposants à l’oléoduc disent que cela fait peser une menace trop grave pour l’environnement. La tribu dit que l’oléoduc traverserait des territoires qui leur ont été concédés par traités, perturberait des sites funéraires sacrés et menacerait l’eau potable pour les 8 000 membres qui vivent sur la réserve tribale de près de 930 000 hectares. L’oléoduc traverserait, sous le fleuve Missouri, la source d’eau potable de la tribu, juste en bordure de la Réserve Standing Rock.Energy Transfer Partners dit que l’oléoduc fournira un moyen « plus direct, plus rentable, plus sûr et plus respectueux de l’environnement » pour acheminer le pétrole et réduira le recours actuel au transport ferroviaire et routier. En 2013, au moins 42 personnes ont perdu la vie lorsqu’un train chargé de plus de 30 000 m3 de pétrole brut en partance du Dakota du Nord vers les raffineries canadiennes, a déraillé à la suite d’une explosion à Lac-Megantic, au Québec.Le 24 septembre, George Fulford de Mandan, Dakota du Nord, au premier plan, prend la parole durant une réunion d’écoute organisée pour l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry, au centre en haut, dans le Camp d’Oceti Skowin. Assis à la droite de Curry, John Tarrant, évêque du Dakota du Sud, et Mark Narum, évêque du Synode du nord-ouest du Dakota d’ELCA. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceReuters dans son rapport du 23 septembre explique que son analyse des données gouvernementales sur les déversements de pétrole brut a démontré que Sunoco Logistics, la compagnie qui gérera l’exploitation de l’oléoduc, a connu plus de fuites d’oléoducs qu’aucun autre de ses concurrents. Les oléoducs terrestres de Sunoco ont subi au moins 203 fuites durant les six dernières années, selon Reuters.C’est dans ce contexte que Curry a passé plus d’une heure à l’assemblée épiscopalienne du Camp d’Oceti Sakowin. Il a écouté les préoccupations des gens et leurs espoirs que l’Eglise soutienne leur action.Rosa Wilson, une épiscopalienne de Standing Rock, fut l’une des nombreuses personnes à s’exprimer ce jour-là. Elle a décrit la discrimination dont elle a été victime, notamment les coups à l’école secondaire et la façon dont es propriétaires des magasins de Bismarck la suivaient de près parce qu’elle était Indienne et donc forcément une voleuse.Le Camp d’Oceti Skowin s’étend le long de la rive nord de la Rivière Cannonball sur la Reserve Sioux de Standing Rock. Voilà une vue de Facebook Hill, où se retrouvent les médias, où les gens peuvent venir recharger leurs appareils électroniques dans un camion équipé de panneaux solaires et où parfois on peut obtenir du réseau téléphonique.Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service« Que pouvons-nous faire ; que pouvons-nous faire pour essayer d’améliorer les choses ? « Je ne sais pas si Dieu écoutera nos prières », a-t-elle dit. « À 74 ans, je me dois d’être une personne qui respecte autrui et qui donne de l’amour ».Une femme est entrée dans le cercle pour défier les membres de l’église quant à leur motivation pour visiter le camp, demandant à plusieurs reprises ce qu’ils voulaient et si leur objectif était de convertir les indiens.La révérende Lauren Stanley, prêtre en charge de la réserve Indienne de Rosebud dans le Dakota du Sud, a dit que ses huit églises étaient sur place pour soutenir les protestataires de quelque manière que ce soit. Quand les épiscopaliens de Rosebud avaient appris que le camp avait besoin de bois, les membres de son église en avaient apporté cinq fagots, a-t-elle dit. Ils avaient aussi amené de la nourriture sur le camp et s’employaient à trouver un groupe électrogène.Ayant appris le jour de la visite de Curry que le camp avait besoin d’une autre fendeuse à bois, Stanley a dit avoir demandé à l’Evêque Primat de la payer. « Donc, nous en aurons une d’ici à deux semaines » a-t-elle dit.« Notre but n’est pas de dire quoi que ce soit à qui que ce soit : notre but est de vous soutenir », a-t-elle ajouté.« Nous ne sommes pas ici pour vous convertir. Nous ne sommes pas là pour ça. Nous ne sommes pas comme les anciens chrétiens, » a répondu Stanley à la femme, par référence à ceux qui exigeaient des indiens qu’ils deviennent chrétiens.Conversation sur la lutte pour la diversité et contre le racisme.Ce matin-là, avant de se rendre au camp, Curry a rencontré les responsables de l’enseignement et religieux de la communauté locale pour une conversation autour d’un petit déjeuner. Ils ont discuté de l’impact de cette opposition grandissante ainsi que de l’histoire des relations interraciales dans la région.Le Maire de Bismarck, Mike Seminary a dit à Curry que sur les 67 000 habitants de la capitale, à peu près 4 000 sont amérindiens. Il a ajouté que les résidents non indiens « vivent en quelque sorte dans le déni, et cela ne nous pose pas de problème » quand on aborde le sujet de la diversité.Le 24 septembre John Tarrant, évêque du Dakota du Sud, au centre, présente l’Evêque Primat Michael Curry à Linda Simon, membre de l’Eglise Episcopale St Mark d’Aberdeen, Dakota du Sud. Simon, membre de la tribu Sioux de Cheyenne River, était en visite sur le camp Oceti Skowin pour la première fois. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceIl a décrit une réunion avec les chefs d’entreprise à laquelle il avait assisté il y a quelques années avant de devenir maire. La discussion avait porté sur les initiatives pour pourvoir les 7 500 postes vacants à l’époque dans la ville. Les chefs d’entreprise avaient proposé de se rendre aux foires à l’emploi dans les grandes villes pour attirer de potentiels demandeurs d’emplois, dit Seminary. Quand il leur demanda s’ils avaient tenté de recruter au sein de la population indienne locale, le maire dit s’être heurté à des stéréotypes tacites sur l’employabilité des indiens.Le lendemain, Seminary est venu prier à St James et a parlé à la congrégation, l’assurant de son engagement de solidarité et qu’il priait chaque jour pour les gens de Standing Rock. Durant la réunion petit-déjeuner du 24 septembre, il a dit que chaque rencontre entre les indiens et les non indiens est une façon de développer les relations. Ces relations pourraient conduire la communauté à ce qu’un jour indiens et non-indiens travaillent ensemble, sans que cela se remarque, a-t-il dit.Ce soir là, de retour à Bismarck à une heure au nord du camp, Curry s’est joint à un groupe de près de 50 personnes à l’Eglise Episcopale de St. George pour discuter de racisme. Ce fut un échange quelque peu inconfortable, lorsque quelques membres de tribus ont décrit la discrimination dont ils étaient victimes ou avaient été témoins en ville et d’autres participants ont parlé de leur perception du racisme et comment ils y répondaient.Carmen Goodhouse, indienne de sang Hunkpapa Lakota et épiscopalienne de troisième génération, a déclaré « on nous avait appris que nous aurions toujours à nous défendre à cause du racisme » et ce qui a été fait dans la région n’a pas été suffisant pour éliminer ce racisme. Le Mouvement de Jésus est nécessaire dans le Dakota du Nord, dit-elle, car « à part demander à Jésus », elle ne sait pas comment les choses vont changer.Dominic Hanson a dit qu’il “comprend tout à fait qu’il y a eu beaucoup de racisme envers les indiens », mais qu’il a aussi vu « beaucoup de racisme de la part des indiens envers les blancs en général et d’autres races.»On devrait pouvoir envisager la possibilité que « ce n’est pas une question de blancs si nous ne communiquons pas », a-t-il déclaré.« Je pense que globalement personne ne s’ouvre vraiment à autrui, ni ne veut communiquer. Et c’est pour cela que nous sommes là aujourd’hui. Nous voulons nous ouvrir ».Les protestations se propagent à travers et au-delà de la réserve.Le Diocèse du Dakota du Nord s’est rallié à la cause anti-oléoduc. Il a publié une déclaration de soutien le 19 août et des membres du diocèse se sont rendus dans les trois camps protestataires pour aider à bâtir une présence unifiée et apporter une aide matérielle. Curry a ensuite fait une déclaration de soutien, décrivant l’action de protestation ainsi : « une action qui entre dans le cadre de la justice raciale et de la réconciliation avec la justice environnementale et qui considère la protection de la création de Dieu comme un devoir ». Les neuf églises épiscopales de la Reserve de Standing Rock ont publié une lettre le 5 septembre exprimant leur solidarité avec la Nation Sioux.Leona Volk, de l’Église épiscopale St. Mark d’Aberdeen, Dakota du Sud, accueille l’Evêque Primat Michael Curry le 24 septembre sur le Camp d’Oceti Skowin. Les petits enfants de Volk vivent sur la Reserve Sioux de Standing Rock près de l’endroit même où l’oléoduc devrait passer. « Cela doit s’arrêter là, et maintenant » dit-elle. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceLes rassemblements et manifestations se sont propagés au-delà du Dakota du Nord. Défenseurs de l’eau salubre, alliés des populations indiennes et supporters du mouvement « Non à l’oléoduc de Dakota Access », hashtag #NoDAPL, ont organisé des rassemblements à travers le pays. Ces actions ont attiré l’attention du Congrès, du Groupe de Travail de l’ONU en charge des populations autochtones et de célébrités.En l’espace de 48 heures la semaine dernière, le Président tribal, Dave Archambault II a témoigné à Genève en Suisse devant le Conseil des Droits de l’Homme de l’ONU, et à Washington, D.C devant le comité des ressources naturelles de la Chambre des Représentants des Etats Unis. Le 22 Septembre , après le témoignage d’Archambault, le groupe des droits de l’homme de l’ONU a déclaré que les États-Unis devraient arrêter la construction de l’oléoduc en raison des menaces environnementales et culturelles, et parce que la Nation Sioux de Standing Rock n’avait pas été traitée correctement durant le processus d’octroi des permis.Archambault devait être présent à St James le 25 septembre, mais Floberg a dit qu’il se trouvait à Washington, D.C pour traiter de questions relatives à l’oléoduc.En date du 26 septembre, près de 1 300 archéologues, responsables de musées, universitaires et étudiants ont signé une lettre adressée à l’administration du Président Obama. Cette lettre demande une enquête approfondie sur le constat sur l’impact environnemental et les ressources culturelles du tracé de l’oléoduc, et cela sous le forme d’une consultation en due forme de la tribu Sioux de Standing Rock.La bataille devant les tribunauxEn attendant, le 16 septembre, une cour d’appel fédérale a ordonné l’arrêt des travaux dans un rayon de 32 kilomètres autour du Lac Oahe, la section endiguée de la rivière Missouri sous laquelle l’oléoduc doit passer, afin de permettre au tribunal d’avoir plus de temps pour étudier la requête d’injonction d’urgence de la Tribu des Sioux de Standing Rock afin de prévenir de nouvelles destructions de sites sacrés dans un rayon de 32 kilomètres, des deux côtés du lac.La tribu a déposé la requête d’injonction d’urgence, après le refus du juge du Tribunal de District des États-Unis, James Boasberg, le 9 septembre, d’une demande d’injonction préliminaire pour interrompre la construction de l’oléoduc pendant l’examen des poursuites judiciaires engagées par la tribu à l’encontre de l’U.S. Army Corps d’Ingénieurs, pour autoriser l’oléoduc.Quelques heures après la décision du 9 septembre, trois agences fédérales ont annoncéqu’elles arrêteraient les travaux et ont demandé à Energy Transfer Partners de « suspendre volontairement » le chantier sur le territoire du gouvernement, un territoire où se trouvent, selon les responsables tribaux, des sites et des objets funéraires sacrés.Les agences fédérales ont aussi déclaré que cette affaire mettait en évidence la nécessité de discussions sérieuses à propos des réformes concernant la prise en considération des opinions des tribus sur de tels projets d’infrastructures, y compris une meilleure manière d’inclure l’avis des tribus sur la protection de la terre et des ressources et des droits issus du traité. Les agences « inviteront les tribus à participer aux consultations officielles inter gouvernementales.» Le National Historic Preservation Act exige ce niveau de consultation avec les tribus.Le 24 septembre, un policier du Dakota du Nord consigne la présence des membres du personnel de l’Evêque Primat sur le bord de la route North Dakota Highway 1806 au moment où deux hommes se font arrêter par les forces de l’ordre dans un petit campement anti-oléoduc de Dakota Access. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceLa situation dans et à proximité des camps continue d’évoluer. Le 22 septembre Energy Transfer Partners a acheté aux propriétaires d’un ranch, David et Brenda Meyer, plus de 2 430 hectares, y compris la terre impliquée dans l’un des quelques affrontements violents de la protestation, d’après le Bismarck Tribune . Les protestataires se seraient confrontés aux agents de sécurité privés, engagés par Energy Transfer Partners le 3 septembre, lorsque la compagnie a commencé à creuser là ou la tribu avait dit au tribunal la veille même, que le lieu était sacré et a servi de lieu de sépulture ancestral. Les responsables des forces de l’ordre ont déclaré que quatre agents de sécurité et deux de leurs chiens avaient été blessés, alors que le porte-parole de la tribu a déclaré que les chiens avaient mordu six personnes et que près de trente personnes avaient été aspergés de gaz au poivre selon Associated Press.Selon le journal de Bismarck, les Meyers ont déclaré sur une chaîne de télévision qu’ils avaient vendu leurs terres pour des raisons de responsabilité, qu’il y avait trop de personnes sur leurs terres et qu’il s’agissait d’un très beau ranch, mais qu’ils « voulaient tout simplement en finir ».Deux jours plus tard, le 24 septembre, l’Evêque Primat et son équipe se sont arrêtés sur le bord de la route « North Dakota Highway 1806 », alors qu’ils rentraient de Bismarck, pour observer les forces de l’ordre arriver dans neuf véhicules sur le site d’un petit campement de protestataires anti-oléoduc. Alors qu’un hélicoptère survolait la scène, deux hommes ont été arrêtés dans le calme, étant accusés d’avoir retiré les panneaux « propriété privée » accrochés aux clôtures entourant le terrain concerné par le litige. Les policiers et les manifestants ont consigné leurs agissements respectifs. Un policier a aussi consigné la présence de membres du personnel de l’Evêque Primat sur le bord de la route.– La Rev.

first_imgNews Malaysian cartoonist Zunar facing possible sedition charge again March 17, 2021 Find out more Organisation MalaysiaAsia – Pacific News GOVERNMENT’S STATEMENTAccording to the statement from the Home Affairs Ministry, all six of my publications, as well as my team of cartoonists, are on the “Prohibited Publication” list.Ministry of Home Affairs secretary-general Mahmood Adam said these books are banned because they are not suitable for reading by the public.”All three publications have been banned for its contents that can influence the people to revolt against the leaders and government policies. The contents are not suitable and detrimental to public order,” he said.Offences are punishable by up to three years’ imprisonment or fines of up to RM 20,000 or both for printing, importing, producing, reprinting, publishing, selling, circulating, distributing, offering to sell, possess prohibited material or contents.THE CONTENTPrime Minister Najib Razak’s administration is tainted with three big issues; conspiracy against the former Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, the murder of Mongolian model Altantuya Shaariibuu and the submarine scandal.Anwar’s popularity is a threat to Najib’s political career, thus the administration concocted the infamous sodomy charge in order to send him to jail.And the extraordinary payment made by the government to the French company in the procurement of Scopene submarines is also a widely discussed topic. The deal took place while Najib was defence minister.In relation to that, the murder of Altantuya, who worked as a translator in the deal, using an explosive C4 bomb is also a big issue. Even though Najib denied involvement in the case, the majority of the Malaysian public thinks otherwise.Also, there are other hot issues such as the appointment of a Jewish company as an advisor to the Prime Minister, corruption, cronyism and so on.My banned cartoons highlight these subjects and my intention is to give the correct perspective and information to the reader. It is a duty for any political cartoonist to be a ‘watch-dog’ over the authorities and to represent the voice of the people through art.ZUNAR’s Statement:1 This ban on the six publications means that all 312 cartoons in the books and magazines by me and my team of cartoonist are being banned as well.2. All these cartoons are based on current issues, done with facts and research.3. I call on the Home Affairs Ministry to explain the meaning of “…contents that can influence the people to revolt against the leaders and government policies. The contents are not suitable and detrimental to public order.”4. I also call on the Home Affairs Ministry to identify which of the 312 cartoons they are referring to.5. If the government does not like my cartoons, they can take me to court. I am responsible for all my cartoons and willing to face the consequences if I break any law.6. The government’s action is in stark contrast to that of Prime Minister Najib Razak, who took office in April last year and promised to promote openness and transparency.7. The government’s action is politically motivated and designed to block alternative views and critical voices.8. The government’s action is a mockery of press freedom and freedom of expression.9. From the business perspective, this action by the Home Affairs Ministry has caused considerable losses to my company. It is estimated that the losses reach RM50,000 or RM100,000 with the returning of the publications from the vendors.10. I would like to stress that material gain is not my objective. As a cartoonist, it is my social responsibility to expose corruption, lies and misconduct by the BN government.Zunar Record fine for Malaysian news site over readers’ comments July 21, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Censored cartoonist Zunar tells his story News RSF_en to go further On 24 June 2010, the Home Affairs Ministry banned my cartoon books and cartoon magazines, namely “1Funny Malaysia,” “Perak Darul Kartun (Perak the Land of Cartoon)” and “Isu Dalam Kartun (Issues in Cartoon).”1Funny Malaysia is a collection of my work from 2005 until 2009 that was published in Cartoonkini on a popular web-based news portal, Malaysiakini.Perak Darul Kartun is a book published by my own company, Sepakat Efektif Sdn Bhd. Isu Dalam Kartun is a monthly magazine with a publishing permit from the Home Affairs Ministry. Three issues have been published: vol1, vol2 and vol3.In August of last year, officials from Home Affairs seized 408 copies of the inaugural issues of Gedung Kartun (Cartoon Store) from my office in Kuala Lumpur. The next day, printing plates from the factory were also seized.WHAT IS THE CONTENT?1 Funny Malaysia, Gedung Kartun, Perak Darul Kartun and Isu Dalam Kartun are focused on the corruption and misconduct of Prime Minister Najib Razak’s administration.Issues such as the murder of Altantuya, the Scorpene scandal, the conspiracy against Anwar Ibrahim, misuse of public funds and taxpayer money, suppressing the media, the use of draconian laws such as the Internal Security Act, Printing and Publication Act and Official Secrets Act were highlighted in these publications.

Their index shows mortgage risk remains high today, and even more troublesome, it indicates risk levels are rising. In fact, they say less than half of the home purchase loans extended in recent months can be considered low risk, despite claims that today’s credit standards are too tight.Almost in step with Oliner and Pinto’s warning that risk levels are rising—even amid claims that credit today is too tight—a new report from Ellie Mae shows credit standards ended 2013 at their lowest level all year. The company found that by December, criteria for first-lien mortgages had relaxed considerably, with the average FICO score at 727, loan-to-value ratios averaging 82 percent, and debt-to-income ratios at a yearly high of 39 percent.

The petition was disposed of by a bench comprising of Chief Justice Dr. Ravi Ranjan and Justice Sujit Narayan Prasad after assurances given by the state government in this regard. The Petitioner had approached the court highlighting that the state government had not yet notified or fixed a place for cremation/ burial of the Covid-19 dead bodies, leading to disruption during funerals. Citing an indecent in this regard he informed the court that disruptions during funerals were in violation of Article 21 of the Constitution that protects the right to dignity and fair treatment, available not only to a living man but also to his body after his death (See Parmanand Katara v. Union of India, (1995) 3 SCC 248). The Petitioner submitted that in one such case, a deceased was denied burial at three Burial Grounds due to fear that allowing the same may make the people living in the vicinity more vulnerable to the infection. He then averred that though there is not much threat because of burial as per present research but the Government must follow the Guidelines on Dead body Management. Inter alia, he also drew attention of the court towards the interim guidance dated March 24, 2020 regarding Infection, Prevention and Control for the safe management of dead body in the context of COVID – 19, as notified by the World Health Organisation. In view thereof the Petitioner had sought that the state Government be directed to notify the place of burial/cremation in every district of Jharkhand and also keep the proper record of place of burial and cremation. Further, he had prayed that the people involved in dead body management must follow “Standard Precautions” while handling the body and the Government must provide proper training for standard handling. “All staff identified to handle dead bodies in the isolation area, mortuary, ambulance and those workers in the crematorium / burial ground should be trained in the infection prevention control practices,” he pleaded. During the course of hearing, the state Government filed a counter affidavit, stating therein that alternate burial/cremation sites for persons dying due to Covid-19 infection have been identified and notified far away from the populated localities of Ranchi at Bundu. The state also submitted that the guidelines regarding Dead Body Management and Bio-medical Waste Management arising out of Covid-19 pandemic were being followed strictly and appropriate letter in this regard had also been issued by the State Government to all concerned authorities. In the face of these submissions, the bench recorded its satisfaction and disposed of the petition. “Since the issue raised in this writ petition has adequately been redressed by the State Government as it appears from the counter affidavit and the averments made by the learned Advocate General, this writ petition is consigned,” the court held.
