Three community radio stations suspended for broadcasting political programmes

first_img RSF asks Senegal to amend its new press law March 17, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three community radio stations suspended for broadcasting political programmes Reports News Reporters Without Borders condemns a decision by the National Council for Broadcasting Regulation (CNRA) on 14 March to suspend three community radio stations based in the Dakar suburbs for two months for violating the rules governing their operations by covering political issues relating to the current local election campaign.“Contrary to all our hopes and despite our repeated calls for respect for diversity of views, President Abdoulaye Wade’s government has again set a bad example,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Coming after the three-year jail sentence for 24 Heures Chrono editor El Malick Seck, the suspension of these three radio stations dashes the illusions of those who might still have believed in Senegal’s democratic image. It heightens our concern about the way the authorities will behave towards independent news media during this election period.”The press freedom organisation added: “It is time the government rescinded article 19 of the community radio regulations, banning them from covering political issues, especially during local election campaigns. This double standard, in which those who support the president are allowed to speak and those who do not are silenced, is unfair and absurd.” The three community radio stations suspended by the CNRA are Oxy Jeunes (based in the suburb of Pikine), Afia FM (based in the suburb of Grand Yoff) and Djoloff FM (based in the suburb of Linguère). Residents of Pikine have threatened to organise a march in protest against the closure of Oxy Jeunes.When Reporters Without Borders monitored Senegal’s state-owned media for several weeks in February 2007 during the campaign for the first round of the presidential elections, it found that they displayed a marked pro-government bias throughout the campaign. “We urged the government at the time to respect the principle of ministerial discretion, under which senior government officials are supposed to adopt a low profile during the campaign,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We also urged the CNRA to draw attention publicly to the imbalance in the state-owned media’s political news coverage.” News to go further January 8, 2021 Find out more SenegalAfrica Receive email alerts Organisation center_img The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa RSF decries exceptional press freedom violations in Senegal News Help by sharing this information RSF_en March 5, 2021 Find out more November 27, 2020 Find out more SenegalAfrica Follow the news on Senegallast_img read more

Waste not Want Not : Summer Salads

first_imgWhatsApp NewsWaste not Want Not : Summer SaladsBy admin – June 23, 2011 759 Advertisement A RECENT review of an article on FFT some weeks ago, brought back the message that we should be conscious of what we buy and what we throw away. Food waste is a huge issue in homes and kitchens around the city, county and indeed the island as a whole, but we can be clever in what we eat, keep and throw away.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Recent good weather, well in some parts of the country, have spurred on the bbq coals to bring out that white heat we all love and like. So, as the barbecues and salad days come and go, Stop Food Waste reminds you that 50% of the lettuce we buy ends up in the bin. While a head of lettuce may seem cheap at around under €1 you can see how quickly this amount of waste can add up in euros over time. The STOP Food Waste programme is funded under the EPA National Waste Prevention Programme (NWPP). Waste Prevention is the preferred waste management option in Ireland.Odile Le Bolloch, spokesperson for Stop Food Waste at the EPA, has the following advice for lettuce lovers and says; “When you buy lettuce, make sure to take it out of its bag and wash it as soon as possible. Spin the lettuce in a salad spinner to dry off the washing water and store it in the fridge in the salad spinner. Leave a small amount of water in the bottom of the spinner and top up if needed. This keeps the lettuce fresh, it lasts longer and you have a supply of washed lettuce to use during the week.“Another mistake people sometimes make is to cut the stalk off the lettuce with a metal knife. This can cause the lettuce to get those brown edges people hate so instead simply break off the leaves as you need them.”Stop Food Waste also advise that growing your own lettuce and other greens not only gives you a greater appreciation for it, because you’ve grown and nurtured it yourself, but it also means that you take as much as you want as you need it. “You don’t need that much space to grow a few heads of lettuce, rocket or herbs – a well drained window box works great where space is limited,” says Odile. “Start the window box indoors and once the first few sprouts start to show you can put it outside on a sunny sill. Make sure you keep it watered – though in Irish summers this is usually not a problem!”Donal Skehan lends his weight to the campaign and says: “Some cynics say ‘salad never sells’ and for the most part the sight of dry leaves are not going to whet the appetite much, but with a few simple recipes for salad dressing you can have your leaves glistening under the summer sunshine and guaranteed not to end up in the bin! The ingredients are very simple; it’s how you combine them that creates the magic.”Asian Dressing:Dresses a salad to serve 4–6 vegetarian3 tbsp sunflower oil1 tbsp dark soy sauce2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped1 thumb-sized piece of fresh root ginger, peeled and finely chopped2 tsp honeyJuice of 1 lime French Mustard Dressing:Dresses a salad to serve 4–6 vegetarian1 garlic clove, peeled and finely chopped1 tsp dijon mustard1 tbsp white wine vinegar1 tbsp lemon juice3 tbsp extra virgin olive oilA generous pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Herby Balsamic Dressing:Dresses a salad to serve 4–6 vegetarian1 garlic clove, peeled and finely choppedFresh rosemary, finely choppedFresh thyme, finely choppedFresh basil, finely chopped1 tsp honey1 tbsp balsamic vinegar3 tbsp extra virgin olive oilA generous pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper Linkedin Emailcenter_img Facebook Twitter Print Previous articleStones In His Pockets returnsNext articleBike It! pedals for Limerick Youth Services adminlast_img read more

Overseas staff would help Britain join global market

Previous Article Next Article HR professionals must increase international recruitment to enable their organisations to compete globally, an international conference heard last week.Professor Marti Subrahmanyam of New York’s Stern School of Business, told delegates that companies need managers from a range of countries ñ not just the one in which they are based ñ to help them take advantage of new markets.Addressing the Partnership Summit 2001 in the Indian city of Hyderabad last week, Subrahmanyam said having managers who understand cultural differences largely dictates an organisation’s ability to do business overseas.He said, “My view is simply that if you want to compete internationally, you have got to really be sensitised to the local culture and not just that, you have to be sensitised to the nuances of the local culture.“You cannot do it second-hand and the quick way to achieve that is to get diversity into your senior management.”Subrahmanyam said he advised Deutsche Bank, which five years ago did not have a non-German member on its board, that it could not hope to be a global player without an injection of diversity at the top.He claimed, “Now it has one Swiss and two Americans on the board and it is a different company.”Although he singled out UK companies as a “little better” than European, American and Asian organisations, Subrahmanyam warned that those companies that do not shape up will pay a heavy price.By Helen Rowelast_img read more

First ever 87-foot Coastal Patrol Boat deployment to Alaska concludes

first_img View post tag: USCG Cutter Terrapin First ever 87-foot Coastal Patrol Boat deployment to Alaska concludes U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Terrapin crew returned home to Bellingham, Friday, July 22nd, after completing a first ever deployment of an 87-foot Coastal Patrol Boat to Alaska.The crew of the Cutter Terrapin completed a 37-day patrol to Southeast Alaska during which they protected living marine resources, safeguarded lives at sea and enhanced maritime security across the region.The crew of the Terrapin supplemented Coast Guard Sector Juneau’s response cutter requirements during the transition period between the homeport shifts of the 110-foot Patrol Boats Naushon and Chandeleur and the 2017 arrival of new Fast Response Cutters, the John McCormick and the Bailey Barco.“District 13 is proud of the outstanding work by Cutter Terrapin’s command and crew during their extended patrol in support of District 17,” said Lt. Elizabeth Kates, 13th District’s patrol boat manager. “Their exceptional professionalism enhanced the safety and security of remote communities and distant fishing grounds as the Terrapin pioneered 87-foot Coast Patrol Boat operations in Southeast Alaska.”During the patrol, the crew assisted in two search-and-rescue cases and completed 46 at-sea boardings including recreational and commercial fishing vessels.The crew patrolled more than 2,000 miles of Alaska waterways, providing Sector Juneau with more than 450 patrol hours while ensuring a positive Coast Guard presence to remote communities and fishing grounds stretching from the Canadian border in the south to the base of Glacier Bay in the north.The Terrapin crew primarily patrols the waters of Washington’s coastline, responding to search-and-rescue missions, maritime security, enforcing state and federal fisheries regulations and conducting safety and security exams.In addition to the Terrapin, there are eight other 87-foot Coastal Patrol Boats stationed throughout the Pacific Northwest, including the Osprey in Port Townsend, the Sea Lion in Bellingham, the Blue Shark in Everett, the Sea Devil and Sea Fox in Bangor, and the Adelie, the Swordfish and the Wahoo in Port Angeles.

Live ChCh Cartridges

first_img34 live shotgun cartridges were found abandoned in a green Nike bag in Christ Church Meadows last Friday. The cartridges were found by a resident of Oxford’s night shelter who approached a constable in Bonn Square to hand over his discovery. The man later showed the police the exact spot between Christ Church gardens and the Meadows where he found the shells in an abandoned hold-all bag. How the ammunition got to one of the most picturesque spots in Oxford remains a mystery. PC Treherne, the man to whom the shells were handed over said that in his five years of working in Oxford he had “certainly never been handed anything like this before”. There has been no sign as yet of a weapon and the cartridges’ discovery have not been linked to any other incidents or crimes so far, but the police are still investigating the matter. Anyone with any information can contact PC Treherne via the Thames Valley Police.ARCHIVE: 6th week TT 2004last_img read more

Pluto’s demotion debated

first_img <a href=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RNGSuFqmro” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank”> <img src=”https://img.youtube.com/vi/2RNGSuFqmro/0.jpg” alt=”0″ title=”How To Choose The Correct Channel Type For Your Video Content ” /> </a> Could the stars be aligned for Pluto to reassume its place in the galaxy?The International Astronomical Union (IAU) voted in 2006 to demote Pluto from planetary status. But after an hourlong debate Thursday night between planetary science experts on what constitutes a planet, an audience packed into Phillips Auditorium at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) voted to restore it to its former rank.The audience favored the argument by Dimitar Sasselov, director of Harvard’s Origins of Life Initiative, who said he isn’t ready to pass judgment on what constitutes a planet, as deep-space exploration turns up new discoveries. For now, he defined a planet as the smallest spherical lump of matter that is formed around stars or stellar remnants.“Let’s keep Pluto a planet until we sort it out,” Sasselov said.The debate was part of “Observatory Nights,” a series of astronomical talks held at the CfA on the third Thursday of every month during the academic year. This talk was moderated by David Aguilar, director of science information at the center.Aguilar explained that Pluto’s demotion remains controversial. Only about 400 astronomers voted on the measure in 2006, just a fraction of the world’s total. Also, Pluto was reclassified as a dwarf planet. If a dwarf tree is still a tree, Aguilar reasoned, why isn’t a dwarf planet a planet?Indeed, people have used their own definitions for heavenly bodies for centuries, and those categories reflect not just science, but current culture, said Owen Gingerich, professor emeritus of astronomy and of the history of science at Harvard and a senior astronomer emeritus at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory.The first evidence of people tracking the planets is the Venus tablet of Ammisaduqa from 1700 B.C. By 1543, people had accepted that planets revolve around the sun. By the 18th century, more powerful telescopes allowed astronomers to expand the solar system to include Neptune, Uranus, and the minor planet Ceres. But by 1850, Gingerich said astronomers felt there were too many planets and began declaring minor planets asteroids.“What is a planet is a culturally defined word that has changed over the ages,” Gingerich said. “The IAU was foolhardy to try and define the word planet.”By 1930, Pluto had become the ninth planet, after its discovery by Clyde Tombaugh. Percival Lowell, founder of the Lowell Observatory, predicted its presence in 1906, and it is named in part for him. However, it didn’t take long for science to chip away at the solar body of rock and ice, according to Gareth Williams, associate director of the Minor Planet Center.“Pluto seemed to shrink over the years,” said Williams. In 1930, it was calculated to equal roughly the mass of Earth. Today we believe Pluto has a mass just 1/459 of Earth.As new solar objects are discovered, Williams explained that the public increasingly has called those objects planets, making a new and comprehensive definition necessary. So, in 2006, the IAU came up with a wholesale reclassification of objects in the solar system. There are planets, dwarf planets, and solar system bodies.A dwarf planet is any other round object that “has not cleared the neighborhood around its orbit, and is not a satellite.” And that, Williams said, describes Pluto.“In my world, Pluto is not a planet,” he said.But Sasselov won’t rule out Pluto yet. The Kepler spacecraft, launched in 2009 to hunt deep space for planets that are like Earth, has discovered objects that orbit stars — some smaller than Pluto, others larger than Earth. It has challenged conventional wisdom of what is a planet.“What the Kepler mission has taught us is that planets are a diverse lot, way beyond what we’ve seen in our solar system,” Sasselov said.last_img read more

Guess Which Legend Sent Love Letters’ Carol Burnett a Note She Just Had to Frame

first_img Love Letters View Comments Related Shows “I have a framed handwritten letter that I got from my idol Jimmy Stewart,” Burnett told us. “Years ago, when he was honored at the Kennedy Center Honors, I was on the program. I sang ‘You’d Be So Easy to Love’ to him, which was the first song he ever sang in a movie.” [Stewart famously crooned the song to Eleanor Powell in the 1936 musical comedy Born to Dance.] Burnett added, “We were friends at that point, and he wrote me the sweetest thank-you note. I treasure it because I just love that man. It’s still in a frame on my wall at home.” Comedy legend Carol Burnett, who recently stepped into Broadway’s Love Letters opposite Brian Dennehy, says she’s a good letter writer. “I used to write a lot, especially when I was in college,” she told Broadway.com. But there’s one letter Burnett cherishes above all else: a thank-you note from her hero. Burnett is a lifelong admirer of Stewart, and she explained the origin of her adoration in her memoir, This Time Together. They later became friends with frequent dinner parties and social activities. Stewart even surprised Burnett on the very last episode of The Carol Burnett Show in 1978.

Jasmine Cephas Jones on Strutting Her Stuff in Hamilton & More

On the big screen, she‘s featured in Noah Baumbach’s new comedy Mistress America.“Opening night felt like a dream. At one point, I looked around and my mom [British-born jazz singer Kim Lesley] was on top of a chair, dancing to the Roots. It was that kind of party. With fireworks!”“It’s fun to play the vixen. In the first act, I’m a kid running around and looking up to my sisters. In the second act, I get to put on red lipstick and strut my stuff. Lin never makes anything uncomfortable, which gives me permission not to feel weird.”“I’ve lived in the same apartment since seventh grade. It’s in my name now; my mom moved upstate. She wanted me to grow up in a multicultural neighborhood, and Midwood, Brooklyn is still a great community. I can walk into a store and my iced coffee will be ready.”“I was always that kid at the theater. My dad took me to his auditions, and I did homework during rehearsals. When I was 10, I remember [director] Philip Seymour Hoffman telling someone, ‘You’re acting. Don’t act.’ It made no sense then, but later it clicked: Acting has to be real.”“High school at LaGuardia really was like Fame. People would sing in the halls and look for ways to show off their talent. Kids were popular because they worked their asses off, not because they were good-looking, which was a great lesson.”“There are so many things I want to do. This is my first professional musical theater job, but I don’t want to put myself in a box. I took my dad’s name to carry on his legacy because acting feels like something I’m meant to do. I want to try everything.”last_img read more
