Newspapers in northern border states forced to censor themselves?

first_imgNews May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Mexico to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders urges the Mexican authorities to quickly investigate local news website journalist Jaime Guadalupe González Domínguez’s murder on 3 March in Ojinaga, a small town on the US border in the northern state of Chihuahua.The Chihuahua state prosecutor’s office said González was driving home when gunmen stopped him at an intersection at around 6:30 p.m., shot him 18 times with large-calibre firearms and took his camera.According to the newspaper La Jornada, the camera contained photos he had taken of a member of a criminal gang. A woman accompanying him in his car was shocked but unhurt.Aged 38 and the father of two girls, González was the editor of the OjinagaNoticias news website and at the same time was one of its reporters.OjinagaNoticias posted a note yesterday reporting that González had been killed, deploring “this attack on journalism” and announcing that the note would “very probably” be the last thing the site published.Sources later told Reporters Without Borders that journalists working for OjinagaNoticias decided at midday yesterday to suspend all activities for fear they could be the targets of similar attacks.Among the last stories posted on the site, which covered various kinds of news, were two about the arrests of racketeers and recent murders in the town.Reporters Without Borders is deeply concerned about this latest attack on freedom of information, which bears the hallmarks of organized crime. Mexico seems to be spiralling down into more and more violence against journalists and netizens, which is carried out with complete impunityWhile various Mexican news media have stopped covering drug trafficking because they have decided it is too dangerous, the closure of a news outlet because of violence is rare and is very disturbing.Less than 72 hours after this murder, medias of the state of Chihuahua paid the price for the violence once again. In Ciudad Juárez, the newspaper El Diario and the TV station Canal 44 were attacked on the 6th of March, at about 1 a.m. They were shot respectively 7 and 10 times with large-calibre firearms.The Journalists Network of Juárez expressed its indignation face to such attacks, denouncing the incapacity of the authorities to make the rule of law respected in Mexico. Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state MexicoAmericas NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies News website editor Jaime González Domínguez’s murder nine days ago in the northern state of Chihuahua has been followed by other setbacks to the media in Chihuahua and the neighbouring state of Coahuila.Zócalo, one of Coahuila’s leading dailies, announced on 11 March, four days after being the target of threats, that it would no long cover news related to organized crime in order to protect the lives of its employees.In an operation apparently orchestrated by organized crime groups, dozens of banners were hung in the streets of towns in Coahuila on 7 and 8 March threatening Zócalo group CEO Francisco Juaristi with death. In response, Coahuila state interior minister Armando Luna Canales announced that measures had been taken to protect the newspaper, which is based in Saltillo, the state capital.While welcoming this gesture by Coahuila’s authorities, Reporters Without Borders wonders how effective the measures will be. Police were stationed outside the newspaper El Siglo de Torreón in Torreón (Coahuila) after five of its employees were abducted on 7 February, but that did not stop armed attacks on the building on 25, 26 and 27 February.Reporters Without Borders also calls on the authorities to shed light on the death of Víctor Javier Campos, an employee of El Diario, a newspaper based in Ciudad Juárez (Chihuahua) that was the target of an attack on 6 March.After being missing for two days, he was found hanged in the bathroom of a hotel in Agua Prieta, in the neighbouring state of Sonora, on 9 March. There was no apparent sign of violence and it may have been a suicide, but murder should not be ruled out.Meanwhile, new information has emerged supporting the theory that OjinagaNoticias website editor Jaime González Domínguez was killed in connection with his work. He had reportedly received repeated written threats from persons demanding that he ignore certain subjects. As result, he had been considering selling the website and moving to Mazatlán (Sinaloa).—————————————————————————06.03.2013 – Border town news website decides to close after editor shot dead May 5, 2021 Find out more Reports March 12, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Newspapers in northern border states forced to censor themselves?

Court ruling on “decommunization” law lifts threat to press freedom

first_img Poland’s new social media law puts freedom of expression at risk, RSF warns With firing of four editors, “repolonisation” under way in Poland June 2, 2021 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Poland Read in french Rsf’s article Read in polish Rsf’s article Reporters Without Borders today hailed the Polish constitutional court’s 11 May decision to strike down much of a controversial “decommunization” law designed to vet the backgrounds of some 700,000 Poles. Several of the 46 articles challenged by the social-democrat opposition were nonetheless upheld. Articles involving journalists, school directors and university rectors were among those declared unconstitutional.“We are pleased with the court’s ruling,” the press freedom organisation said. “It must now be quickly published in the official gazette so that it can take effect.”In an op-ed piece published by Gazeta Wyborcza on 24 March, Reporters Without Borders had warned against a procedure that would create “a category of citizens deprived of free speech with the state’s blessing.”One of the law’s critics, Bronislaw Geremek, a leading opponent of the former communist regime who was elected to the European parliament in 2004, said of the court’s ruling: “There are no winners or losers, just citizens who have been protected.” He added: “Poland continues to be a country where the rule of law prevails.”Under law, which took effect on 15 March, journalists were obliged to file affidavits swearing that they never collaborated with the secret police under the communist regime that fell in 1989. Those who refused to file such statements could lose their jobs and be banned from working as journalists for 10 years.The constitutional court made a point of issuing its ruling prior to the 15 May deadline for filing these affidavits. The overwhelming majority of the citizens concerned chose to wait until after the court’s decision before sending their form to the Institute for National Memory (IPN), which is in charge of the archives of the SB, the former secret police.The ruling is a major setback for conservative President Lech Kaczynski and his twin brother, Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who had made the “decommunization” law one of the priorities of their administration. Anticipating a negative ruling, they had tried everything in recent days to prevent it being issued, and had even ordered a search of the IPN archives for anything that would discredit the court’s judges.To avoid exposing the court to charges of a conflict of interests, its president decided to suspend two judges whose names had been registered in the SB archives as informal “contacts,” although the names were later crossed out because of their refusal to collaborate – a detail which the Fakt daily newspaper deliberately omitted.

Credit care

first_imgBy April SorrowUniversity of GeorgiaPeople are tightening their economic belts these days, and so are banks. The days of limitless credit may be over. However, it’s still a valuable financial tool if managed wisely, says a University of Georgia financial expert. “The ability to use credit to help you get the things you need today and pay for them tomorrow is both your most valuable asset and your biggest liability,” said Michael Rupured, a consumer economist with UGA Cooperative Extension. CREDIT CARESome common credit dangers, he said, are:• Using credit cards to live beyond your means. The key to financial security is to spend less than you earn. Credit cards allow you to spend more than you earn. Using them to maintain a lifestyle you cannot afford is a financial disaster in the making. • Relying on creditors to set credit limits. It’s important to set your own credit limits to avoid taking on more debt than you can afford.• Carrying a balance on credit cards. Learn to pay off credit card balances in full each month. You avoid any finance charges when you pay the full balance each month.• Making only the minimum payment on credit cards. If you pay only the minimum payment on your credit card statement, it’s going to take you a long time to pay off the balance. If you have multiple cards, pay as much as you can on the one with the highest interest rate and the minimum payment on the rest. • Buying the wrong items on credit. Unless you pay off your balance in full each month, using credit cards to pay for things like food, movie tickets or other consumable goods is unwise. You pay more because of the interest, and will be making payments long after the movie is over and the food is gone. CREDIT REPORTStaying abreast of the information in your credit report can help you keep your interest rates low. Credit reports influence a person’s ability to borrow money and the rate at which that money is lent. They also impact insurance premiums and employment. A credit report includes personal information as well as your credit history. A detailed credit history includes information on any credit account opened in your name or accounts you are authorized to use. Accounts may include retail credit cards, loans from a bank or finance company, mortgages and home equity loans and bank credit cards. Medical bills, checking and savings accounts are not included. The Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act entitles all Americans to one free copy of their report from each of the three credit report agencies: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. Georgia’s Fair Business Practices Act gives a second copy from each agency to all Georgians, which means Georgians can get six free copies of their credit report every year. The first set of free copies can be requested through www.annualcreditreport.com. The second set must be requested through the individual agencies. Requesting and reviewing these reports is important. Correcting inaccurate information and working to improve your credit history are keys to keeping your credit in good shape.Rupured recommends spreading requests out so you can review an updated report every other month.CREDIT SCOREAccess to your credit score may cost an additional fee. If considering paying for this service, make sure to buy a FICO score, as there are many options out there. A credit score is a three-digit number between 350 and 850 arrived at by computing information contained in a credit report. Anything over 720 is considered very good. The average credit score in Georgia is 640. “This number is based on complex equations from mountains of data collected and analyzed over the years about the bill paying behavior of consumers,” Rupured said. “Like it or not, the credit score is a remarkably reliable predictor of who is and is not a good risk for a loan.” The lower your credit score, the more you will pay in finance charges for credit.

COVID-19: Over 100 early released prisoners have reoffended, police say

first_imgIn total, 106 repeat offenders have been reported.The crimes committed by the convicts mostly consisted of robbery, vehicle theft, drug abuse and child sexual abuse.As of Sunday, the Law and Human Rights Ministry has released more than 37,014 convicts and 2,259 child detainees under the COVID-19 assimilation and integration program, with the government planning to release a total of 50,000 prisoners.Law and Human Rights Ministry’s corrections directorate general Reinhard Silitonga said on Monday that the program has been successful in reducing overcrowding and preventing the spread of COVID-19 in correctional facilities, noting that only one confirmed COVID-19 case in prison had been recorded so far.Topics : More than 100 convicts who were released early in an effort to prevent the further transmission of COVID-19 in prisons are back to committing crimes, according to the National Police. National Police spokesperson Ahmad Ramadhan said there had been reports of recidivism in several regions, including Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java, Yogyakarta, Banten, West Kalimantan, East Kalimantan, North Kalimantan, South Kalimantan and North Sumatra.“There were 13 cases of recidivism each in Central Java and North Sumatra and 11 in West Java,” Ahmad said at a press conference on Tuesday. “Those three provinces recorded the highest number of repeat offenses from released prisoners.”last_img read more

Dodgers weighing options amid coronavirus shutdown

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “There are not a lot of questions we can answer now, but we are setting up channels of communication to keep people posted as we learn more,” Friedman said via conference call Friday. “We are trying to get at all the questions and doing the best we can with all the information we have, and trying to wrap our arms around this and figure out what makes the most sense.”All major league facilities were closed to outsiders as of Friday with some players going through light workouts.As the coronavirus crisis deepens, Friedman said no Dodgers players have illnesses and that nobody on the roster has been tested. He said the facility in Glendale already has received a deep cleaning.Friedman was asked if the complicated situation has been deflating for a club that is considered one of the favorites to win the World Series.“We haven’t even gotten there,” he said. “We’re just trying to figure out how to do things in the most responsible, supportive way for our players, our staff, the community we’re in right now and that is taking precedent. All 30 teams are going through this together, as well as the country, and that is where we are focusing our attention right now.” GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers were in the process of counting heads and raised hands on Friday, trying to determine exactly where all of their players are headed now that they were granted the ability to choose from a number of options.After a Major League Baseball Players’ Association meeting on Friday regarding the coronavirus protocol, players can either stay near the location of their team’s spring training facility, return to their offseason home or head to the city where their team is located.According to Dodgers president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman, the club was still trying to get an accurate count of who was doing what.With the Dodgers required to facilitate workouts in both Glendale and at Dodger Stadium, the team is not only trying to figure out who on the roster is going where, but it is trying to figure out which coaches should be placed at which location.center_img At Dodger Stadium, Friedman said construction on the outfield pavilions is still ongoing. Team employees based in Los Angeles, however, are now working from home.The status of the All-Star Game, scheduled for Dodger Stadium in July, still is to be determined.Figuring out the logistics of the 300 staff members in Arizona, including players, has been a bit complicated.“Were just working through it and give as much clarity as we can provide to everybody who is here,” Friedman said.And while he might not know where all of his players are headed at the present time, Friedman knows exactly where he plans to be.“My mindset right now is to be here for a little while,” he said. “I guess I will also read and react based on what is going on, but I am of the mind to be here as far as I can see out.”last_img read more

Africa’s high growth potential cities

first_img30 January 2013Accra, Lusaka and Luanda, the capitals of Ghana, Zambia and Angola respectively, are the sub-Saharan African cities with the highest potential for growth over the next five years, according to the MasterCard African Cities Growth Index released in Johannesburg on Tuesday.“As the entire African continent with its population of over one-billion people is going through a fundamental transformation, this new index puts a spotlight on the economic and human factors driving urban growth over the next five years,” Mastercard said in a statement.The index, developed in the final quarter of 2012 by Professor George Angelopulo of the University of South Africa (Unisa), was launched at the second Africa Knowledge Forum in Johannesburg.Johannesburg, Durban, Cape TownJohannesburg was the highest ranked South African city in the index, coming in at 8th position out of the 19 cities surveyed, followed by Durban (10th) and Cape Town (11th). [Full ranking of cities below.]“Johannesburg, although already a strong economic powerhouse city in Africa, achieved lower scores in certain categories as a result of lower growth expectations due to its relative maturity when compared to other African cities,” Mastercard said.“For example, the expected growth of the middle class population is higher from cities such as Accra and Luanda than it is for Johannesburg, which has seen a growing middle class since the change of government in 1994.”Factors affecting cities’ growth potentialThe index rankings were developed from published historical and projected data on typical factors affecting cities’ growth, including economic data, governance levels, ease of doing business, infrastructure and human development factors, and population growth levels.“Some of the key reasons for Accra emerging as a high growth city include its gross domestic product per capita growth over the past three years, its projected population and household consumption growth, its strong regulatory environment, and the relative ease of doing business in this city compared to other African cities,” Angelopulo said.“While many of these larger and more established cities offer the expected potential for growth, other less prominent ones are quietly establishing themselves as those with even higher growth potential,” he added.“This is primarily due to high scores on accelerated growth factors that include health, education, governance, infrastructure development, and the ease of doing business in those cities.”Importance of regulatory environmentsHarare (Zimbabwe), Kano (Nigeria), Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire) and Khartoum (Sudan) were deemed to have the lowest growth potential of the 19 cities examined in the study.While these cities scored well in some categories, such as health and levels of foreign direct investment, the study found that their potential for growth was affected by low scores in areas such as political and regulatory environments, historical economic growth and ease of doing business.“One of Africa’s key economic and social challenges is how its cities attract significant inward investment by being globally competitive, serving as magnets for investment and growth, hot-spots of innovation and, most importantly, developing attractive and thriving business environments,” Angelopulo said.A rapidly urbanising continentMichael Miebach, MasterCard president for Middle East and Africa, noted that Africa “is a region where the lines between the developed and developing worlds are dissipating owing to various economic, demographic and technological factors. Most of these factors have been associated with the increased urbanization of the continent.“Therefore, understanding the long-term growth potential of Africa’s cities, and the resultant increase in African urban consumers, has never been as important.”According to the United Nations Human Settlements Programme, the urban population of Africa is expected to triple from 395-million in 2009 to 1.23-billion in 2050, by which time 60% of all Africans are expected to be living in urban areas.“This growth in urbanization, combined with the fact that the center of global economic gravity is shifting to dynamic emerging markets such as those found in Africa, means that the continent’s cities will play a much bigger role in driving the economic growth of their respective countries,” Miebach said.The rankingThe cities and their ranking on the MasterCard African Cities Growth Index 2012-2017 is as follows:Accra, GhanaLusaka, ZambiaLuanda, AngolaDar es Salaam, TanzaniaAddis Ababa, EthiopiaNairobi, KenyaKampala, UgandaJohannesburg, South AfricaKinshasa, Democratic Republic of CongoDurban, South AfricaCape Town, South AfricaMombasa, KenyaLagos, NigeriaAbuja, NigeriaDakar, SenegalHarare, ZimbabweKano, NigeriaAbidjan, Cote d’IvoireKhartoum, SudanSAinfo reporterlast_img read more

Team India unhappy with West Indies pitches

first_imgA controversy erupted ahead of the first cricket Test between India and the West Indies on Monday with the visitors unhappy over the substandard practice pitches provided to them at the Sabina Park in Kingston.India, already hit hard by injuries, were grumpy over the practice facilities as they found out that two of the three pitches provided to them were dangerous for batsmen as it had variable bounce.Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his boys could not have a proper work out on Saturday at the nets as two of the three pitches provided were found to be two-paced.The two pitches not used on Saturday had become powdery and the top surface had loosened up considerably after the Indians had an intense work-out on Friday. Consequently, a few deliveries kept low while others reared up disconcertingly.Opener Murali Vijay was hit on his right forefinger by a local fast bowler on the nets on Friday and after viewing the two practice pitches, the Indian team decided not to use local net bowlers at all on Saturday.Only one batting net was used on Saturday and the other two were only availed for throw-downs by members of the Indian squad, notably by bowling coach Eric Simmons and computer analyst Digvijay.Even these throw-downs were not without inherent danger as the other opener designated for the Test, Abhinav Mukund was twice hit on shoulders by deliveries which reared up dangerously.Even the Indian fast bowlers lounged around and did not bowl in order to protect their own men. Only the three spinners, Harbhajan Singh, Amit Mishra and Pragyan Ojha bowled on the one strip deemed fit for batting sessions.advertisementIndeed, the spinners bowled long and even alone at the stumps after the rest of the team had retired to the dressing room.Interestingly though, West Indies have had no problems with the same nets and had a full-blown session on Saturday.The first Test begins in Kingston on Monday while the second and third will be played at Barbados (June 28-July 2) and at Dominica (July 6-10).India had clinched the ODI series, which preceded the Tests, 3-2.- With PTI inputsFor more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img read more
