The Qatari authorities have made promises to defend press freedom. This should be achieved through serious legal reform, resulting in the decriminalisation of press offences in the country”.Jordanian national, Amal Eisa, was sentenced in absentia to three years in prison on 22 May 2008. Her editor was fined 20,000 rials (about 3,500 euros). The Hamad hospital laid a complaint against the newspaper after it carried an article on 9 July 2005 about a mistake in which a living patient was sent to the morgue and that the error was only realised when the patient he woke up.The hospital authorities immediately denied the incident had taken place and sued the paper. Eisa left Qatar several months ago. Jail sentences are provided for in cases of press offences under Qatari press law. Moreover the law includes criminal penalties for offences such as “damage to state integrity” or “damage to religions”.Qatar is ranked in 79th place out of 169 countries in Reporters Without Borders latest annual press freedom index published in October 2007.

first_img News March 8, 2017 Find out more News RSF_en Receive email alerts Follow the news on North Macedonia “This large-scale spying on journalists constitutes a massive assault on media freedom, threatening every aspect of the rule of law,” said Christian Mihr, executive director of Reporters Without Borders Germany. “If the government’s professed desire to join the European Union means anything, those responsible for this massive assault on the fundamental rights of Macedonian journalists and all citizens must be identified and brought to justice without delay.”At a press conference on 25 February, opposition leader Zaev played six audio recordings to demonstrate the extent of government spying on the media. According to Zaev, those wiretapped included both the editors of pro-government media and critical journalists like the deceased former editor of Fokus magazine, Nikola Mladenov. Such practices violate Macedonia’s constitution and laws, as well as the international standards and laws to which it is bound. They also violate the rights and freedoms of journalists, and call into question such basic principles as media freedom, protection of journalists’ sources and the basic rights of Macedonian citizens in general.Zaev’s accusations are the fourth in a series of disclosures since early February in a major scandal allegedly involving the wiretapping of more than 20,000 people in this small country with a population of some two million. According to Zaev, who was charged last month with plotting to bring down the government, the operation was ordered and commanded by Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and Gruevski’s cousin Saso Mijalkov, the head of the State Security Service. The prime minister’s response has been to accuse Zaev of being used by a foreign intelligence service, which he claimed was itself behind the wiretaps. He declined to name this intelligence service but said the Macedonian intelligence services knew the answer to this question. Gruevski did not deny the authenticity of the recordings. Media freedom has declined dramatically in recent years in Macedonia, whose ranking in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index has fallen from 34th in 2009 to 117th in the 2015 index. An interim EU report in October on Macedonia’s candidacy criticized the media situation, including the misuse of defamation laws and the fact that the state places almost no advertising in independent news media. Reporters Without Borders and Civil have also condemned the conviction of Macedonian journalist Tomislav Kezarovski, who was sentenced on appeal in mid-January to two years in prison for allegedly revealing the identity of a protected witness in an article published in 2008. Having already spent several months in prison and more than a year under house arrest, Kezarovski has been spared the remaining prison time since the appeal ruling on health grounds.

According to opposition leader Zoran Zaev, the Macedonian government illegally eavesdropped on some 100 journalists in order to cement control over the media.

Critics claim the current cleanup plan for the site will not remove all the toxic chemicals.The fight was led by District 4 Incumbent Gene Masuda.Although Masuda was on the right side of that issue — according to many District 4 residents — the incumbent still faces three challengers, Joe Baghdadlian, Charlotte Bland and Kevin Wheeler.Residents have been fighting mansionization, an increase in residential burglaries and new developments.The residents also successfully staved off the “road diet” which would repave Orange Grove Boulevard east of Lake Avenue, where a “road diet” reducing traffic lanes to one lane each way, augmented by a center two-way turn lane.East Pasadena including the neighborhoods of Upper Hastings Ranch, Lower Hastings Ranch, Daisy-Villa, Eaton Blanche, East Eaton Wash, Eaton Canyon Wash, East Orange Grove, Fox Ridge/Canyon Close, Loma Vista, Sierra Madre Villa, and Victory Rose.Incumbent Gene MasudaFirst elected: Voters in District 4 elected Masuda in 2012For the past 8-1/2 years, I have been building relationships and working closely with my residents to solve some big issues together. I have walked my district at least five times to find out what are the real concerns and questions residents have on their minds. This has resulted in successful collaborations focused on solutions. The feedback of residents matter because they are directly impacted by decisions made by the council. This effort requires a temperament that is responsive, patient, proactive and respectful of differences. I will continue to protect our neighborhoods and promote safety. With the support and guidance of my outstanding Field Rep. Noreen Sullivan, she will provide quality city services by connecting residents with city staff professionals to help solve their residential issues.I serve on the City of Pasadena’s Legislative Policy Committee and represent Pasadena on the Gold Line Construction Authority and Gold Line Joint Powers Authority. I have supported the highest level of responsibility with your tax dollars by building a healthy “rainy day reserve” and balancing our city budget every year since I joined the council. Challenges ahead include solutions for the homeless, affordable housing, protecting the character of our neighborhoods, fighting high density developments and protecting our open space. Please visit genemasuda.com to see the most important endorsements that really matter the most – the residents.“For the past 8-1/2 years,” Masuda said. “I have been building relationships and working closely with my residents to solve some big issues together. I have walked my district at least five times to find out what are the real concerns and questions residents have on their minds. This has resulted in successful collaborations focused on solutions.”Joe BaghdadlianCurrently serves as an advisory board member to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (Temple Station)Our district needs much more attention than what it’s getting right now from our city council person. We have a lot of issues created by our councilmen and we have to bring the city back to the people. Right now the city is far away from the people and we love getting the help we need for our constituents, down here, They’re all complaining about this and that and the other. I am running to solve those issues. They are very important. There’s the crime issue, there’s the homelessness issue, the space bank issue and Eaton Canyon park golf course issue and Street Diet and on and on, I mean nine years this person was in the city council and in my opinion and a lot of other people with me, I say enough is enough. It’s time for change and I am the person who can bring the change.“I am the person who can do everything the way it should be done correctly for the people. I’m going to help my constituents and my beloved city of Pasadena.”Charlotte BlandCurrently sits on the Commission on the Status of WomenAs a businesswoman, wife, mother and grandmother, I know that our city can do better and I’m running for city council to bring people together and create positive change that strengthens our communities. I have decades of experience in business and nonprofit organizations, I have helped assist communities and implement strategies to solve problems.One of the big issues that we have in District 4 is that we have environmental issues, and I’m running on environmental justice. One of the things that is happening in District 4 is we have the Southern California Edison easement that runs along back of many neighbor’s yard. I am willing to ask that the city of Pasadena and Southern California Edison give us a much deserved environmental health study so that we can have peace of mind that the easement on the back of our properties is not affecting the health of the neighborhoods that we live in. My current belief is that we should live in a city that is progressive and that has development that is smart and safe, builds affordable housing, combats and protects the climate. Pasadena is a special place and it has hundreds of years of history behind it, and we just need to make sure that we maintain the character of our city, as we contemplate major developments projects.“I plan to work with other councilmembers,” Bland said. “Running a local government successfully is hard work. City officials know that it requires serious commitment, time and knowledge on the part of the local officials and staff as well as community members. Local policy making is also a collaborative activity.”Kevin WheelerPro East PasadenaI guess if I have a campaign slogan, it’s from East Pasadena for East Pasadena. And I’m running to oppose the rezoning of East Pasadena and because it creates more traffic and it blocks mountain views, less traffic and better amount of views, is what I would consider progress. So I guess first and foremost, it’s all, about the rezoning for increased densities is why I’m running. I graduated from Pasadena High School. I want to improve our public schools and improve them through empowering the teachers specifically and the whole way through. I’d like to see Hamilton Park restored back to the level of quality that it was when I played there when I played little league in the seventies and eighties.“I’d like to see East Pasadena, in terms of the homeless problem, focus on first time homeless seniors,” Wheeler said. “I’m opposed to the road diet, as it as it is now. I would restripe Sierra Madre Villa, back to how it was, I would be open to trying bicycle lanes. Put the bicycle routes on streets that cut through the city that aren’t heavily traveled.” Uncategorized A Final Look: The District 4 Race Baghdadlian, Bland, Masuda, Wheeler fighting for council seat By DAVID CROSS and ANDRÉ COLEMAN Published on Monday, March 2, 2020 | 4:45 pm Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week last_img read more

The coronavirus pandemic accelerated store closures and devastated revenues for the mall landlord.“I do frankly want to turn the page on 2020,” the CEO said during an earnings call Monday.Read more“We are blowin’ and goin’:” Earnings rise for Simon Property amid retail stormSimon Property Group’s earnings plummet below last quarterSimon completes acquisition of high-end mall owner Taubman Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink Over the course of the year, the REIT lost 13,500 shopping days across its portfolio to lockdowns.The largest U.S. mall operator’s net operating income fell 17.1 percent for the year, thanks largely to rent abatements, uncollectible rent, lower sales-based rent and less ancillary property income. Simon agreed to $341 million in rent deferrals and $410 million in rent abatements during the pandemic.For the year, Simon lost nearly $1.15 billion in lease income, management fees and other streams, and revenue dwindled to $4.6 billion from $5.76 billion.In the fourth quarter, reported net income of $312.7 million was down from $590.4 million from a year earlier. For the year, consolidated net income was $1.28 billion, a dramatic drop from last year’s $2.42 billion.“We worked our you-know-what off to mitigate that through cost savings,” Simon said. “We were pretty aggressive in running the ship as lean and as tight as we could.”Simon noted that the company plans to sell properties.Occupancy was 91.3 percent as of Dec. 31. As of Feb. 5, the company has collected 90 percent of its net billed rents for the second, third and fourth quarters combined across its U.S. retail portfolio.Still, Simon has been investing back into its company.Simon saved retailers Forever 21, Lucky Brands, Brooks Brothers and J.C.

first_img The US Military Sealift Command chartered heavy lift ship MV Ocean Giant returned from a trip to the Arctic where it resupplied the Thule Air Base as part of the annual operation Pacer Goose.The ship returned to Naval Station Norfolk August 18 where it is spending multiple days off-loading outdated equipment and waste material transported from the remote U.S. Air Force base in the northern coast of Greenland.“Ocean Giant’s mission support of Pacer Goose 2017 was very successful,” said Rick Caldwell, a Military Sealift Command supervisory marine transportation specialist. “Pacer Goose is a critical mission as Thule Air Base would not be able to operate without the fuel and supplies which were delivered.”Ocean Giant is crewed by 19 civilian merchant mariners who perform all the operations aboard the vessel including navigation, engineering, medical care and line handling.During the ship’s northern track to Thule, Ocean Giant rendezvoused with the oil tanker MT Maersk Peary, which was loaded with fuel for Thule. The two ships followed the Canadian Coast Guard’s Pierre-Radisson class icebreaker CCGS Henry Larson through the ice and into the air base’s harbor.“Merchant marines have a proud history of service to the United States,” said Arey. “During WWII civilian mariners did their part in support of the war effort and we are very proud to be supporting the military by delivering supplies to Thule.”Pacer Goose, the annual operation to resupply Thule, began in 1952 using U.S. Navy combatant ships to transport goods equipment and materials to the remote military base.

first_imgWhat image are you trying to put across and how would you describe yourselves? Whilst we say that we have an “uncool” style, the uncoolness actually is pretty natural. Musically, we are into melodic guitar pop music. Not your ‘arms in the air, getting drunk tra la la’ stuff. Are snowmen always scary? No snowmen are really cool. Especially the Raymond Briggs, Aled Jones Snowman. I imagine Raymond Briggs to look like Father Christmas. Where did you find your influences in Southampton? There is no real music scene in Southampton, and there are many bands doing all sorts of different things. There also wasn’t much to do, so we just jam in the garage with a few close friends. We don’t mix in trendy London circles, and are not influenced by London. An average night for us would be jamming, and watching a Dave Lynch film. What is your perspective on London? London is a con. We did one gig there and never went back until we were signed. So what films are you watching? City of God. The whole vests, scruffy jeans, and Bene with his glasses are really cool. There is an unobtainable coolness about them, the whole Rio de Janeiro gangster scene, that isn’t like the American stereotypical stuff – the scruffy gangster look. Any David Lynch film too; we watch them every night. And what bands are you listening to? Zutons, Bees, Broadcast, Scalaa Belgium Boy’s choir that sings covers. I particularly liked Bitch by Meredith Brooks, and Bittersweet Symphony. How do you find touring? It is absolutely non-stop. Last year during touring, we only had a few days off at any one time. Which bands have you recently tried to get tickets for? We tried to get tickets to see the Pixies at Brixton Academy. But, a few weeks ago, they asked us to play with them. So having had not tickets, we ended up playing with them. So, Prince? Prince is how we all met. We were the last few dancing to ‘Alphabet Street’ at this club called Thursdays. Then Aaron joined later. Is music a fair reflection of life? Well it is for us. We live under a flight path, and that kind of gave us the inspiration, not only for lyrics and melodies in our songs, but the inspiration to strive for perfection. What was the influence for the falsetto vocals that Greg uses? It’s a style that is a sure fire way of making sure we are not absorbed into the current scene. The twinkly bits are very unique. But in terms of style it’s very much influenced by Radiohead, Muse, Jeff Buckley.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more


first_imgAlong with a team at Imperial College, Hancock described Oxford’s vaccine research as “promising”, announcing the government’s plan to “back them to the hilt and give them every resource that they need to get the best possible chance of success, as soon as possible.” The vaccine from the Oxford project will begin its human trial on Thursday, with Hancock adding that “in normal times, reaching this stage would take years.” The benefits of pioneering the production of a vaccine would be great, he declared: “the upside of being the first country in the world to develop a vaccine is so huge that I am throwing everything at it.” Hancock also announced that the UK will invest in manufacturing capability so that, if successful, the vaccine can be made widely available to the public. Although he reassured the public of the government’s commitment towards supporting the search for a vaccine, he warned that success is not a guaranteed outcome. He said: “Nothing about this process is certain. Vaccine development is a process of trial and error, and trial again. That’s the nature of how vaccines are developed. But I’ve told Sarah Gilbert and Robin Shattock, two of our most inspiring scientists, that we are going to back them to the hilt and give them every resource that they need to get the best possible chance of success. As soon as possible.” Hancock described the UK as leading the global effort to produce a vaccine, adding that “we’ve put more money than any other country into the global search for a vaccine.” In addition to the £20 million allocated towards Oxford’s research, the team at Imperial College will be granted £22.5 million to support their phase 2 clinical trials. Both teams were described as making “rapid progress”. Matt Hancock announced this afternoon during the government’s daily Coronavirus press conference that £20 million in funding will be allocated towards a vaccine research team in Oxford, led by Professor Sarah Gilbert.last_img read more
