Murder attempt on woman journalist must not go unpunished

first_img Indian journalist wrongly accused of “wantonly” inaccurate reporting March 3, 2021 Find out more Organisation News Reporters Without Borders is worried by the lack of progress in the police investigation into the 15 July shooting of Arunachal Times journalist Tongam Rina in Itanagar, the capital of the northeastern state of Arunachal Pradesh, and supports calls by civil society organizations and news media for the investigation to be assigned to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI).“We welcome the news about the improvement in Rina’s condition and the state’s decision to cover the cost of her treatment, but we are disturbed by the lacks of significant progress in the investigation into this murder attempt more than a week after it took place,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We hope that the federal government will demonstrate a total commitment to combating impunity for crimes of violence against the media, which are on the increase in India, and that it will do this by ordering the Central Bureau of Investigation to take over the investigation and identify both the perpetrators and instigators of the shooting.”Critically injured by a shot to the abdomen, Rina was declared out of danger by doctors at Rama Krishna Mission Hospital after they carried out an operation to remove the bullet lodged near her spine. Arunachal Pradesh chief minister Nabam Tuki said the state would pay all of her medical bills.On the basis of witness interviews, the police were able to issue a facial composite of the suspected gunman on 17 July but no arrest followed. Several media and civil society organizations have responded to the lack of progress by staging silent marches and calling for the CBI to be put in charge of the investigation.Reporters Without Borders is concerned about the increase in violence against journalists. Rajesh Mishra of the weekly Media Raj, in the central state of Madhya Pradesh, was fatally injured by men who attacked and beat him while he was at a tea stand on 1 March. Chandrika Rai, a reporter for the dailies Navbharat and The Hitavada, and his wife and two children were beaten to death in their home in the same state on 18 February. No one has so far been arrested for these murders.India is ranked 131st out of 179 countries in the 2011-2012 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. to go further RSF demands release of detained Indian journalist Siddique Kappan, hospitalised with Covid-19 News Follow the news on India RSF_en IndiaAsia – Pacific center_img Help by sharing this information News April 27, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts IndiaAsia – Pacific India: RSF denounces “systemic repression” of Manipur’s media July 25, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Murder attempt on woman journalist must not go unpunished News February 23, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Glencore writes off almost $1 billion at Colombian coal mines due to falling European imports

first_imgGlencore writes off almost $1 billion at Colombian coal mines due to falling European imports FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Bloomberg:The economic case against European coal is proving too much for even Glencore Plc.The world’s biggest coal shipper cut the value of its Colombian business — which mostly sells to Europe — by almost $1 billion as it adjusts to the struggling market. It also plans to stop mining coal in Colombia in next 15 years.The announcement is another example of how climate change and Europe’s dwindling demand for coal is starting to reshape the global energy industry. A glut of natural gas, along with a milder winter, and higher costs for carbon-emissions allowances, has tilted the economics of generating electricity away from coal and toward using more gas.Investors are piling on pressure over climate change impacts and last year Glencore agreed to cap coal production. But it’s the economics that are proving decisive. “The Atlantic coal market, I don’t see a big recovery,” Chief Executive Officer Ivan Glasenberg said on Tuesday. “It’s clear the amount of coal being consumed in the Atlantic is decreasing.”The collapse of European coal demand is not just a headache for Glencore. BHP Group, the biggest mining company, is looking to exit the business. One of its assets is Cerrejon, a mine in Colombia it owns with Glencore and Anglo American Plc. In the current market, there are few natural buyers.[Thomas Biesheuvel]More: Europe’s dying coal industry is forcing even Glencore to changelast_img read more

Pope celebrates Mass to usher in Christmas

first_img160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! For those unable to get into the midnight service there were giant screens set up in St. Peter’s Square, which was made festive with a twinkling Christmas tree and the Vatican’s Nativity scene. Officials unveiled the life-size Nativity on Monday, revealing the statues of Mary and Joseph, Jesus’ parents, in a huge house-like structure located next to the Vatican’s giant, twinkling Christmas tree. This year, the scene of Jesus’ birth was depicted in a re-creation of Joseph’s Nazareth home rather than the traditional manger in Bethlehem. Officials at the unveiling said the shift underscored the idea that Jesus was born not just in a single place, but everywhere and for everyone. Hours before Midnight Mass, Benedict briefly appeared at his studio window to light a candle as a symbol of peace, blessing the crowd with the light before leaving it on the sill. At noon today (2 a.m. PST), Benedict was to deliver his traditional Christmas Day “Urbi et Orbi” speech – Latin for “to the city and to the world” – from the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica, in which he often touches on current events and issues of concern to the Vatican. He then is expected to issue Christmas greetings to the faithful in more than 60 languages. VATICAN CITY – Pope Benedict XVI ushered in Christmas as he led Midnight Mass early today amid thousands of the faithful who filled St. Peter’s Basilica. Dressed in white and gold-colored robes, Benedict blessed the crowd of pilgrims, Romans and tourists as he walked in a procession up the main aisle to the central altar, which was decorated with red poinsettia flowers. As a choir sang, Benedict sprinkled incense on the altar under Bernini’s massive bronze baldachin before opening the service with the traditional wish for peace in Latin: “Pax vobis” (“Peace be with you”). The faithful responded: “Et cum spiritu tuo.” (“And also with you.”) Four children, some in native costume from their countries, brought flowers to the altar, placing them near a statue depicting baby Jesus while Benedict joined a choir in a hymn. last_img read more

Series broadcast first for SA women’s cricket

first_img26 August 2014In a first for women’s cricket in South Africa, the Momentum Proteas’ broadcast partner, SuperSport International, announced on Monday that the team’s three-match T20 series against England, starting in Chelmsford on 1 September, will be broadcast live.The Proteas’ tour begins on Friday with two warm-up T20 matches against the England Women’s Academy in Southend-on-Sea on successive days, followed by the first T20 international.The team learnt of the coverage of their series at a send-off function hosted by Momentum at the High Performance Centre in Pretoria on Monday.‘A landmark achievement’“This is certainly a landmark achievement for the Women’s game in South Africa,” said an excited Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Haroon Lorgat.“Never before have we seen a South African broadcaster televise the entire series of our Momentum Women’s National team and this will help us to generate greater interest by raising the profile of Women’s Cricket.“We had experienced the benefits of live coverage during the ICC World T20, when our women cricketers were seen live in action for the first time, and the decision by SuperSport to continue this trend will certainly benefit the sport. I want to express my heartfelt thanks to SuperSport for this decision,” he added.‘Delighted’“SuperSport is delighted to confirm the broadcast arrangement,” the Acting CEO of SuperSport, Brandon Foot, said at the function in Pretoria, which fell within Women’s Month.“Our national team has made great strides recently and we trust this development reflects growing interest in the women’s game.“Women’s sport hasn’t always been on top of the national agenda. SuperSport’s hope is that this series unearths the role models and stars we know are out there and deserve to be seen on our platforms.”‘Extremely excited’National women’s captain Mignon du Preez, commented: “This is amazing news for women’s cricket in South Africa. We are extremely excited to have television coverage of a tour for the first time and we look forward to showing the country what we’re all about and just how much talent is in this squad.“We hope that this is just the first of many televised tours and that having South Africa finally see us play will inspire other young girls to choose cricket as their preferred sport to play.”‘Upwards trend’Women’s cricket is on an upwards trend in South Africa, with more investment being made to back it up.Recently, thanks to the partnership with Momentum, central contracts for the Women Proteas increased from six to 14. This year’s National Academy intake also saw women’s players included for the first time.In addition, there has been an increase in women’s clubs around the country, with the number now sitting at 79 clubs actively involved in women’s cricket.‘A fantastic next step’National coach Hilton Moreeng was thrilled with the news, saying: “The good news just keeps coming. It’s a fantastic next step after CSA announced the additional contracts.“This is exactly the kind of move that is needed to catapult the profile of the national team as well as women’s cricket in South Africa. We look forward to having the country cheer for us from their couches at home and we will do our very best to make everyone proud.”‘Growing fan base’Momentum’s Head of External Communications and Corporate Social Investment Charlene Lackay said: “Live match coverage is fantastic news for the ladies given their growing fan base at home and increasing interest in competitive performances of national women’s teams globally.“Live TV coverage increases the pressure, but we believe the ladies are equal to the task. Momentum has always believed in this team and has been working hard to build their profile. We’re very proud of them and want them to feel the support of the nation all the way in England.”TOUR FIXTURES Fri, 29 Aug: SA vs England Women’s Academy, Southend-on-SeaSat, 30 Aug: SA vs England Women’s Academy, Southend-on-SeaMon, 1 Sep: 1st T20, SA vs England, ChelmsfordWed, 3 Sep: 2nd T20, SA vs England, NorthamptonSun, 7 Sep: 3rd T20, SA vs England, BirminghamTue, 9 Sep: 1st T20, SA vs Ireland, SolihullWed, 10 Sep: 2nd T20, SA vs Ireland, Solihull SOUTH AFRICAN SQUADMignon du Preez (capt), Trisha Chetty (vice-capt), Bernadine Bezuidenhout, Moseline Daniels, Shabnim Ismail, Marizanne Kapp, Ayabonga Khaka, Lizelle Lee, Matshipi Letsoalo, Sune Luus, Sunette Loubser, Andrie Steyn, Chloe Tryon, Dane van NiekerkSAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Cheating DeathWatch: Myspace

first_imgA Myspace spokesperson was honest about the company dropping the ball. “I think, internally, we all felt like we’d let that community down; like we owed them something and had to make it right by delivering on the promise of Myspace.” But she also understood that no one had picked up the slack. “In its heyday, Myspace was a great platform for artists. When we stopped serving that community, no one else stepped in to give artists a place to put their music, connect with audiences, see how their art’s resonating with people, promote themselves, collaborate with other creators… The need for a Myspace is there. We plan on delivering on that need.”Where Myspace Is HeadedMyspace has a product to sell. It has the economics to make that product profitable. It just needs to make the product desirable.This is where star power comes in. Timberlake has managed to endear himself to teenage girls who think he’s cute, grown-up women who find him sexy, and grandparents who want to pinch his cheeks – all without alienating guys, who want to drink a beer with him and meet his wife. Timberlake is there to bring labels to the unsigned bands, marquee names to the catalog, and users to the site. If he delivers, it’s up to the team to keep them interacting.And what about that team? As one Myspace worker puts it: “Before Tim & Chris & Justin took over Myspace, I was looking for jobs elsewhere. I wasn’t even confident that new ownership would make a difference. But when they bought the company and we met them, heard what they had to say, there was an immediately noticeable shift. These guys were really ready to turn this thing around, and they had a plan. And the sense I get from them is that they don’t fail. They work hard and are focused on specific goals that can succeed, which was really refreshing. The staff, who were tired of being on the losing team, started to perk up and get energized again because we started to have a focus and a goal and some real hope.”Employee excitement doesn’t necessarily lead to a turnaround, but it’s a necessary component, and something Myspace has lacked for a while.Can Myspace Make It?There are a lot of “ifs” in this scenario, but once you posit that there’s a market for a music discovery and sharing service, Myspace actually seems to be in the lead.Or it will be, once the beta launches. The date on that is still uncertain. According to the company, “We’re literally pushing fresh code every day. We’re actively getting feedback from our community and making tweaks and adjustments based on what they tell us.”The site is due to relaunch at some point in 2013, and when it does, we’ll see whether Myspace belongs on real DeathWatch list.As of the end of 2012, though, Myspace is still here – and still potentially relevant. So we tip our caps to them, and look forward to seeing whether the company can make it all the way back.To see more ReadWrite DeathWatches, check out the ReadWrite DeathWatch Series, which collects them all, the most recent first. In 2005, traditional media took note, and Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp dropped $580 million for MySpace and its parent company. By fiscal 2008, Fox Interactive (MySspace’s new parent)turned a $10 million profit on revenue of $500 million. Murdoch was ecstatic on an earnings call. Things changed pretty quickly.The next May, Facebook, already bigger overseas, surpassed MySpace in the U.S. by nearly doubling its user base over the previous year. Myspace responded by slashing 400 jobs to reinvent “a startup culture.” The decline was on.In April of 2011, Murdoch started shopping MySpace to bidders, asking for $100 million. He took a lot less, and sold the company to Specific Media for $35 million in June.Planning to refocus on MySpace’s biggest strength – music – Specific Media brought in Justin Timberlake for some star power and industry cred. Management went into planning mode, and apart from a more graphical home page, the site just kind of sat there. On the plus side, the bleeding stopped by December, and Myspace (now with a lowercase “s”) actually started adding users again.Where Myspace Is NowIn September, 2012, the team began teasing a new, more visually attractive site, focused on a single mission: providing a single social space for consumers and labels to discover musical artists. In the words of an employee, “There’s going to be a huge emphasis on surfacing unknown and up-and-coming artists of all kinds and content around them that is different from what you get on other sites.”The site looks a lot like Twitter. And Pinterest. And every other social media site that’s hot right now. There’s a layer of media sharing and consumption tools, plus reporting tools that let artists see who’s listening to and sharing their music, help them strike up relationships with promoters, influencers and (if they’re lucky) music labels. Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Related Posts Myspace began taking requests for invitations and pushed its beta to the industry, with consumer invites to follow. The beta has drawn mixed critical reviews of the business model. ReadWrite’s Jon Mitchell can’t understand why anyone would invest so heavily in the Web when mobile is where the action is, and he may be right. Still, everyone seems to agree about three things: The beta looks fantastic. It’s hyper-focused on sharing and discovery. Justin Timberlake is more than just a name on the marquis – he has a very real stake in the product’s success.So why would Timberlake risk his reputation on reviving Myspace? For one thing, it still has assets. With 28 million unique monthly visitors, Myspace is no Facebook (152 million in just the US), but it’s bigger than Pandora (21 million), and more than twice the size of Spotify (12 million). It also has global rights to its catalog, while Pandora is limited to U.S. distribution. The catalog itself is much larger, too, owing to Myspace’s direct relationships with unsigned artists, who bring 27 million of the service’s 42 million tracks. And as Myspace’s parent company pointed out in a leaked slide deck in November, those unsigned artists’ songs are free, dramatically lowering Myspace’s costs per listening hour.

Australia ready to welcome Warner back with open arms despite Bancroft, Smith comments

first_imgDavid Warner has not been thrown out of the scheme of things in Australian cricket even though doubts had arose after the sensational interviews given by Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft. Smith, Bancroft and Warner were all banned in the wake of the ball-tampering scandal that rocked the cricketing fraternity back in March. While Smith and Warner were banned for a year, Bancroft was suspended for nine months and he is set to return to cricket with his ban ending on Saturday. Smith and Warner will have to wait until March.While all the three are on course to make a return to cricket and eventually international cricket, their futures remain in the hands of Australia coach Justin Langer and captains Tim Paine and Aaron Finch.Finch said whatever had happened was in the past and it was all about how the three of them were conducting themselves at present in order to get themselves back in Australian cricket.”When Davey and Steve are ready to make their – be allowed to come back and play cricket for Australia and their states – from my point of view they’ll be welcomed back with open arms,” Finch was quoted as cricket.com.au.”Whatever’s happened, has happened. The punishment has been dealt. They’ve been working really hard off the field to meet every criteria, and go above and beyond everything that has been asked of them, to come back and play international cricket again.”Finch added he had not seen the interviews given by Smith and Bancroft in the last 24 hours. “There hasn’t been any chat about it in the changeroom at all to be fair.”advertisementIn explosive interviews recently aired, Bancroft said that it was upon the insistence of David Warner that he carried out the action – rubbing sandpaper on the ball to inflict reverse-swing in the Cape Town Test vs South Africa – and that was captured on the camera. “Dave [Warner] suggested to me to carry the action out on the ball given the situation we were in the game and I didn’t know any better,” Bancroft told Adam Gilchrist on Fox Cricket.”I didn’t know any better because I just wanted to fit in and feel valued really. As simple as that.”On the other hand, Steve Smith came out and said that he overlooked “something” that happened in the dressing room and that is where he failed as a captain. However, he laid the majority of blame on Cricket Australia revealing what he was told after three Tests in Sri Lanka. I remember James Sutherland and Pat Howard coming into the rooms there and actually saying ‘We don’t pay you to play, we pay you to win’,” the 29-year-old Smith told ‘Fox Cricket’ host Adam Gilchrist in an interview.Warner remains away from limelight and media even as he showed up at the nets in Sydney Cricket Ground ahead of the third Twenty20 International in Sydney. Even Justin Langer was at the nets that day watching over Warner.Cricket Australia CEO Kevin Roberts also said that these interviews by Smith and Bancroft will not affect their decision in relation to Warner because whatever was said was nothing new than what had already come out in their investigation. Also Warner had alreadt apologised and owned up to his part in the scandal”I don’t know if it does [make it harder for Warner]. Our focus is to work with Dave, who I spoke to about three days ago, on his integration plan when he is eligible for selection again,” Roberts told ‘SEN sports radio’.”Our focus is on how we pro-actively look forward and work with the players, rather than be concerned with what has happened in the past.”According to the radio, Roberts felt that the timing of the interviews wasn’t ideal as these have overshadowed the crucial Boxing Day Test against India in Melbourne even though the series is extremely interestingly poised at 1-1.On Smith revelation related to Sutherland, Roberts said, “Our goal will always to be to win, let’s make no mistake, but our non-negotiable expectation is that we compete with honour.”Largely, the interviews from Smith and Warner have not been received well with Australian greats saying that it only demonises Warner and does little for the country to get over the scandal.Here is what some of Australia’s known faces have said about the interviews:ADAM GILCHRIST”There’s no doubt Davey Warner would be feeling so isolated at the moment,” said Gilchrist, “I would encourage Dave to come out wherever and just be honest and as open as you need to be to get back to playing cricket.”advertisementRICKY PONTING”I’ve seen a couple of headlines [since the interviews], which I’ve been shocked at, I must admit. Some of the things that have been said have been quite shocking to me.”We’re nine months on from this stuff and there’s still a lot being spoken about what happened in Cape Town.”Now that those stories are out there, it’s going to be interesting to see what the reaction is tomorrow in newspapers and news channels. There’s enough in those stories to raise a few eyebrows,” Ponting told cricket.com.au.DARREN LEHMANN”Yeah he [Bancroft] could’ve and should’ve [come to the coaches], I think he says that,” Lehmann told Macquarie Sport Radio. “He should’ve come to us, at the end of the day it was a mistake – we know that. [It was] a severe mistake made by the guys and a lot of people have suffered one way or the other through that. “We know it shouldn’t have happened, but it did.””Steve decided to turn a blind eye. He was captain of the country and he should have more control of that”MICHAEL SLATER”There is a strategy behind Steve Smith and Bancroft, and Dave Warner’s off the radar at the moment. They’re all running some strategy to try and regain respect from the public and from their players. But in those comments, he’s buried Warner,” Slater was quoted as saying by Channel 7.”They had the chance way back when it happened to tell the truth about the situation. There’s no use now coming back and saying something different that was said then. They all collectively said as that little group that ‘we’re all involved’ and now they’re saying something very different.”I don’t want to hear it. I know there’s an element of the public that now like to get to the bottom of it, but in terms of a respectful comment on Dave Warner, there’s been none of that.”MARK WAUGH”The one thing I couldn’t quite understand was he said he didn’t really know right from wrong,” Waugh was quoted as saying by Fox Sports.”That seems to me to be a little bit of an excuse, given that he’s played first-class cricket for a long time, and Test cricket. But the fact that he thought he had to do it to fit into the team, it’s a bit of a sad reflection on what was going on.”MARK TAYLOR”My worry is that we’ve got this with Bancroft coming back and when Warner and Smith come back we’ll have more and more stories and to be totally honest it’s the same story we heard nine months ago,” Taylor told Wide World of Sports in an interview.”Everyone’s going to rehash the story, rewrite them again, about what happened. The media will grab a word or two that might be inconsistent to what we heard nine months ago and create a story out of it.advertisement”Everyone’s going to say that they need to ‘clear the air’ but I don’t think they do. The air in my opinion is clear.”DEAN JONESDean Jones took to Twitter to tell his opinion.”My thoughts on the Steve Smith and Cam Bancroft interview.1. Just dumb to do the interviews. What were they thinking?2. Just be quiet, do your time. Practice hard and quietly get your spot back.3. If they get a 100, don’t carry on. Just raise your hand and move on.””What these interviews have done… and when Warner does his with 60 mins… will just throw more fuel on the fire. All 3 were badly advised. Just keep quiet boys… do your time and play…. that’s if they get that chance again.”Also Read | Almost gave up cricket for yoga, reveals banned Australia batsman Cameron BancroftAlso Read | Steve Smith reveals why he did not appeal ball-tampering banAlso See:last_img read more
