(Brian Lawless/PA Wire/Press Association Images)Deputy McGuinness said that following ‘frank’ discussion yesterday with the Administrator he was assured that the report will be comprehensive.“The Administrator informed me that he was getting excellent co-operation from the staff but outlined some concerns,” Deputy McGuinness said, “including the fact that the constant dripping of information was having a negative impact on the staff and was impacting on morale.”Meanwhile, an emergency motion passed at the Health Committee will see Section 39 organisations be invited to “outline the funding model and breakdown of their different sources of funding”.Remuneration“The organisations will also be asked to outline the remuneration received by all executive staff and the funding source from which such remuneration is derived in terms of public and private sources or the percentage of each,” TD Jerry Buttimer, chair of the committee, said but in a measured statement this afternoon called for the public to continue support charities.“The Committee has appealed for calm from the public pending on-going investigations in order to avoid unnecessary and unintended collateral damage,” he said.An important aspect the committee is looking for organisations to outline is an decline in funding.Read: Here are the minutes of the CRC board meeting where Paul Kiely’s €742k pay-off was agreed >‘A twisted web’: Credit cards, foreign trips and 5 other things we learned from the CRC hearings > MOST QUESTIONS WILL be put to the Central Remedial Clinic once the Oireachtas receives a detailed report on the organisation’s inner workings.Other organisations have also been called to discuss their finances under an emergency motion passed today at the Health Committee.Deputy John McGuinness, Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, confirmed this afternoon that the “board and staff, including the former chief executives of the CRC” will be called before the committee to discuss a range of legacy issues in more detail.‘Maximum disclosure’He says the accounts being prepared will deliver ‘maximum disclosure’.“Adequacy of governance and controls, remuneration, the use of charitable funds and issues relating to the CRC Medical Devices company” will all addressed in the report.A date has been set for 31 March for the report to be completed, currently being prepared by administrator John Cregan, and will be delivered to the Director General of the HSE.last_img read more

A time of reckoning for Cyprus

first_imgIf there was any doubt how absurd the division in Cyprus is, then ask for the local time. Depending on which side of the island you find yourself, there will be an hour’s discrepancy, as the Republic of Cyprus has changed to winter daylight saving while the north has stuck with Turkey time. As the current Cyprus talks intensify, reaching a crescendo with the Mont Peredin and Geneva summits, it seems timely to take stock and review how an imagined solution effects, or deters, the politics of change and continuity. There is no doubt that throughout its long history, four issues have particularly frustrated the Cyprus peace process: territory, property and security and guarantees. Clearly, each side has different concerns, interests and priorities − including prescribed ‘red lines’ − when it comes to these issues. In terms of security and guarantees, for the Greek-Cypriots the ‘red line’ entails the withdrawal of all the Turkish troops from the island and abolition of all guarantor powers. As far as territorial adjustments and property are concerned, the Greek-Cypriots equate them with the ‘right of return’ for all refugees and the maximum recovery of the ‘lost lands’ that resulted from Turkey’s invasion in 1974. In contrast, for Turkish-Cypriots, their security ‘red lines’ consists of their demand for Turkish military presence on the island and a guarantee from Turkey alone as effective measures that would protect them. Regarding territorial adjustments and the return of property, the Turkish-Cypriots have consistently advocated retaining most of northern Cyprus for economic and security reasons and minimising its impact on creating a ‘second wave’ of Turkish-Cypriot refugees.So it was no surprise that when the negotiations did not reach a comprehensive settlement at Mont Pelerin and Geneva, though they ostensibly made progress by agreeing on the territorial criteria, acrimonious renditions and mutterings of blame became louder in Nicosia, Athens and Ankara. The latest round of negotiations comes after 20 months of direct talks between the two current leaders, both of whom vigorously campaigned for the Annan Plan during the failed 2004 referendum. While the UN and others insist that the current talks date back to the (2008) Christofias-Talat period, this may be a political ploy to entice and retain AKEL and CTP support should a referendum eventuate. Having learned from 2004, UN strategy – by and large − ever since has been to allow the Cypriots to determine the content of the negotiations, while they concentrate on the process. The game-plan to emerge was that once the two sides agreed on the territorial criteria, it would be interfaced with an actual territorial map, which would then open the way for all involved parties to discuss Cyprus’ security and guarantee arrangements. Ultimately, this would see the two leaders produce a Cypriot ‘authored’ comprehensive agreement, which would then be put to a separate simultaneous referenda sometime in the first half of 2017 – allowing enough time for campaigning, coalition building and convincing Cypriots of the virtues and benefits of the settlement.The Mont Pelerin and Geneva conferences promised so much that it was inevitable that, psychologically, they could not possibly live up to their momentum. Addressing different audiences, expectations, often fed by Twitter- happy negotiators and facilitators, have had the opposite effect in Cyprus itself. The media – as communicative filter between elites and the public – initially conveyed back to Cyprus the impression of a voyeuristic infatuation with their situational attribution often rendering a lack of seriousness and solace of the occasion. In conjunction with its non-disclosure policy, a communication lacuna has compounded a culture of secrecy and leaks that nourish the pessimistic attitude that many Cypriots have of the talks, their prospects and ultimately their value. Even though they took place between two compatible and affable leaders and a rather ‘creative’ and diligent UN, Mont Pelerin and Geneva offer us a timely reminder that the Cyprus talks, official negotiations, and first-track diplomacy − important as their contribution might be − are still nevertheless inadequate in their exclusive control of the peace process. As previous attempts have revealed, by themselves they are unable to overcome the constraints that steadfastly prevent the resolution of the Cyprus conflict. There appears to be a missing link that prevents progress at the peace talks from resonating at either inter- or intra- communal relations. Cyprus’ current dilemma between separatism and unification is expressed more tangibly in the new challenges posed by the doctrine of pre-emption. The difficulty of constructing a new peace paradigm in Cyprus is not only exacerbated by its communal polarisation, but is also vulnerable to internal and external tensions particularly as they relate to Turkey’s (and Greece’s) unpredictability and the growing disparity between the financially ‘accommodated’ and ‘dislodged’ classes on both sides of the island. Negotiations are always a tricky business. Especially, when the stakes are so high and the returns are not so obvious. If not handled properly, the Cyprus talks run the risk of furthering the mood of despair among Cypriots and their readiness to surrender to the certainty of the status quo.In such a case, failure of the current peace talks would see both communities, for difference reasons and in different ways, trading federalism for separatism as their preferred second-best solution. Under such circumstances, there is always the danger that the two-state solution will become, either deliberately or by osmosis, a historical endgame for both Greek and Turkish Cypriots.* Dr Michális S.

Un homme mort dun cancer choisit de se faire momifier à légyptienne

first_imgUn homme mort d’un cancer choisit de se faire momifier “à l’égyptienne”À titre expérimental, des médecins légistes britanniques ont momifié, selon les méthodes des anciens Égyptiens, le corps d’un homme mort d’un cancer en janvier 2011, qui, se sachant condamné, s’était porté volontaire pour cette expérience post-mortem. Avant de mourir, en janvier dernier, d’un cancer des poumons à l’âge de 61 ans, Alan Billis, un chauffeur de taxi du Devon au sud-ouest de l’Angleterre, avec l’accord de sa famille, s’était porté volontaire pour donner son corps à la science, en vue d’une expérience hors norme : faire momifier sa dépouille (par des médecins légistes) à la façon des souverains de l’ancienne Égypte. Une première depuis 3.000 ans, donc.À lire aussiArchéologie : le vrai visage de Cléopâtre reconstitué en 3DDirigée par le médecin légiste Peter Vanezis, une équipe a retiré tous les organes du corps (exceptés le cœur et le cerveau) avant de l’immerger, durant un mois, dans un bain de sels spéciaux, de le faire ensuite sécher dans une salle spéciale du centre médico-légal de Sheffield (Angleterre), et enfin de l’entourer de bandelettes. Un mode opératoire établi par le chimiste Stephen Buckley, de l’Université d’York, et basé sur l’étude des momies de la XVIIIe dynastie, les mieux conservées.”Je lisais le journal et il y avait une annonce disant : cherchons volontaire avec une maladie en phase terminale prêt à donner son corps pour une momification. (…) Si les gens ne sont plus volontaires [pour ce genre de choses], on ne pourra plus rien découvrir…”, avait déclaré, avant son décès, Alan Billis, qui, avec courage et humour, se surnommait alors lui-même “Toutan-Alan”, en clin d’œil au pharaon Toutankhamon, de la XVIIIe dynastie, justement, dont le corps a subi le même traitement que le sien, 3.000 ans plus tôt. Avec le même humour, sa femme, Jan Billis a expliqué cité par BBC News : “Je suis la seule femme du pays à avoir une momie pour mari”.Le 19 octobre 2011 à 14:41 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Mancini explains Ronaldos Serie A goaldrought

first_imgItalian manager Roberto Mancini was questioned about Cristiano Ronaldo’s goal-drought for Juventus, he gave an interesting explanation about the subject.Now that the international break is well-underway for every club in the world, Italy has to gather all their international player under Roberto Mancini’s command and the boss had some interesting things to say about Cristiano Ronaldo’s recent goal-drought for Juventus. Following the same vein that Massimiliano Allegri talked about after Juve’s match against Parma, the Italy manager spoke about the many obstacles that Ronaldo faces in a very different football he has found in Italy compared to Spain. It’s been three matches with no goals already and the Portuguese forward still hasn’t gotten the chance to score a goal, but the only way he has responded to this situation is by training harder every day. Now that the international break left Juventus’ training camps deserted, Cristiano has been spotted there from the early hours of the day and he’s been practicing with the players who are left on the squad that didn’t get called up by their national teams.Altri tre punti! Ottimo lavoro di squadra!??#finoallafine pic.twitter.com/sxDpYR9whr— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) September 1, 2018We already know that Cristiano Ronaldo is obsessed with scoring his first goal in Serie A, something that very few people are worried about because the Portuguese forward has given great signs of sacrifice during his first matches. The only problem with Ronaldo right now is the adaptation process, which is taking a little longer than expected by now. But Juventus’ next match against Sassuolo at Juventus Stadium appears to be the perfect time for Cristiano to get that first goal, and once that happens it might be very difficult to stop him from scoring more goals going forward. But as we said, for now the only one who is worried about this situation is Ronaldo himself as other experts on the subject analyze his lack of goals in the start of this new season and they all come up with the same conclusion: it is only a matter of time for Cristiano Ronaldo to start his goal count.? Check out the full video of today’s ⚪️⚫️ training session only on #JuventusTV ➡️ https://t.co/7FXJsnqlm9#ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/QNiVuOsldu— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) September 5, 2018The latest authorized voice to talk about this topic is Italy’s manager Roberto Mancini, a coach who has won many trophies throughout his career and has managed some of the best players in the world. Roberto made comparisons of Serie A football with the Spanish La Liga in order to explain Cristiano’s goal-drought further: “There are moments in which things just don’t go according to plan, even when you make a great effort. Cristiano Ronaldo has scored some goals throughout his career and I don’t think he will have a problem to do it again. It’s a difficult moment for him, but that is also normal for any striker. Now you ask me if he is crucial to attract defenders and help his teammates score, that is an assignment that every team member has to do during the match. Every rival defends his own part of the pitch and it’s obvious that Cristiano is not going to find the same spaces he had in Spain as easy in Italy. La Liga plays another type of football compared to Serie A,” said Mancini during a press conference this Wednesday.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.#Azzurri ??#Cragno, #Biraghi, #Lazzari and #Zaniolo after their first call-ups: “It’s a dream come true.”➡️ https://t.co/795lgz4MeW#VivoAzzurro pic.twitter.com/mYCIXUM14B— Italy (@azzurri) September 5, 2018Mancini’s luck in not facing Ronaldo next week.Nobody expected that this goal-drought would actually become beneficial for Italy, because the Azzurra is about to play against a Ronaldo less Portugal on their second ever Nations League match on September the 10th. The Portuguese forward specifically requested his manager Fernando Santos to not include him on the next call-up list for his national team, the reason for this is to prepare more thoroughly for Serie A football and get that goal-drought out of the way as soon as possible. Ronaldo is already scheduled to be included in October’s matches for Portugal, but Italy will be grateful for this decision that the new Juventus player has made and they will try to make the most out of it. After facing Poland on the first Nations League match, Italy must travel to Lisbon in order to clash against the Portugal National Team in the second match of this special format that has replaced the European Championship.Back on track?blessed? pic.twitter.com/0cR7r54O3b— Cristiano Ronaldo (@Cristiano) September 4, 2018How long do you think it will take Cristiano Ronaldo to end his goal-drought for Juventus?

Supreme Court of California rules in favour of Starbucks employee in compensation

first_imgThe Supreme Court of California has ruled that a Starbucks employee, and a corresponding class of non-managerial staff, must be paid for store-closing tasks that are performed after employees have formally clocked out.The case, Troester v Starbucks, regards Douglas Troester, a former shift supervisor who worked at coffee retail chain Starbucks between mid 2009 and October 2010. Troester filed a class action complaint in August 2012, arguing that he and other non-managerial staff should be compensated for store-closing tasks that had to be completed after employees clocked off from work. This is due to the fact that Starbucks used different computer software for clocking out and for initiating the close store procedure, which includes transmitting daily sales, profit and loss and sending store inventory data to Starbuck’s head office, activating the store alarms, locking the front door and walking employees to their cars.During his 17-month period of employment, Troester’s unpaid working time totaled an estimated 12 hours and 50 minutes. Paid at the then-applicable minimum wage of $8 (£6.10) an hour, this equates to $102.67 (£78.30) of unpaid wages, exclusive of any penalties or other remedies. The closing tasks that Troester performed added between four and 10 minutes to his working hours each day.In March 2014, the district court granted Starbucks’ motion for a summary judgement. This was to explore whether the federal Fair Labor Standards Act’s de minimis doctrine would apply to claims for unpaid wages under various sections of the Californian Labor Code.The de minimis doctrine is an application of the rule that the law should not concern itself with trifles, and in this instance excuses the payment of wages for small amounts of otherwise compensable time, due to this time being administratively difficult to record.The district court ruled in favour of Starbucks, concluding that the uncompensated time was de minimis, and therefore did not have to be paid. Troester appealed to the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which recognised that the de minimis doctrine had never been addressed in relation to wage claims brought under Californian law. The Supreme Court was therefore asked to provide an opinion.The Supreme Court of California ruled in favour of Troester, finding that the federal rule permitting employers under some circumstances to require employees to work as much as 10 minutes without pay is less protective than the Californian wage order that states that an employee must be paid for all hours worked or for any work completed beyond eight hours a day. The Supreme Court further found that neither the Labor Code statutes nor any wage order have been amended to recognise a di minimis exception.The opinion documentation stated: “In light of the wage order’s remedial purpose requiring a liberal construction, its directive to compensate employees for all time worked, the evident priority it accorded that mandate notwithstanding customary employment arrangements, and its concern with small amounts of time, we conclude that the de minimis doctrine has no application under the circumstances presented here.“An employer that requires its employees to work minutes off-the-clock on a regular basis or as a regular feature of the job may not evade the obligation to compensate the employee for that time by invoking the de minimis doctrine. As the facts here demonstrate, a few extra minutes of work each day can add up. What Starbucks calls ‘de minimis’ is not de minimis at all to many ordinary people who work for hourly wages.”last_img read more

Walker Mallott form Unity Ticket to oppose Parnell

first_imgBill Walker (rt) addresses a press conference about his decision to join Byron Mallott (lft) on a Unity Ticket.The Bill Walker and Byron Mallott campaigns have joined forces to defeat Governor Sean Parnell in November. They’re calling their combined campaign the Alaska First Unity ticket. The pair announced their decision at a packed press conference Monday afternoon. Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell approved the ballot change late in the afternoon.Download AudioWalker agreed to drop his Republican affiliation to run for governor with Democrat Byron Mallott as his running mate. Walker previously ran as an Independent. Both Hollis French and Craig Fleener, who were candidates for lieutenant governor, will step aside.Mallott said it was not an easy choice to make, but he didn’t think either of them could beat Parnell on his own. Mallott said he does not feel like he’s abandoning the people who voted for him in the primary.“It’s hard in political life to ask for this because of recent — of a long history. But we’re trying to change that! And I ask you to trust me. Look at my record. Look at what I say. At the actions I take. I cannot do anything more,” Mallott told the crowd.The pair’s main message is that they are working together to build Alaska and to go against partisan politics. “Our vision for Alaska was part of the problem in the campaign,” Mallott said. “They overlapped so much that there was little differentiation between us.”Walker said he is still socially conservative, but they are not running the campaign on social issues. Instead they have agreed to focus on improving the economy and the education system. He said one way to do that is to actually decide which mega-projects the State wants to complete, like the Alaska LNG Project.“We need to stop doing some of the crazy studies we do. We spend billions of dollars on studies and we don’t actually do something. We just study the studies of the studies. We need to decide to what we can do, what we’re going to do, and we can do it and stop studying everything else.”Walker said he does not have other specific ideas for budget cuts. He assured the group that Mallott would be an active part of the decision making process and would have a place in the governor’s office if they win, not next door.Luke Miller with the Parnell campaign said they are not surprised by the move. “They’re both — the way we see it — two peas in a pod. They’ve both supported these liberal Obama policies in Alaska, whether it’s expanding Obamacare, raising taxes, or growing government.”Miller says the Parnell campaign is still waiting to hear specifics from the new Unity Ticket on their actual policy proposals.Department of Law statement: “Nothing in Alaska Law prohibits the changes to the ballot requested by Bill Walker and Byron Mallott. The Constitution and statutes are silent on this particular issue, but constitutional principles of equal protection and ballot access favor allowing approval of these changes, and we think a court would likely agree. The Lieutenant Governor is following past and current guidance of the Attorney General’s Office in adopting an emergency regulation to ensure that an appropriate procedure is in place for replacing a non-party lieutenant governor candidate who has withdrawn.”last_img read more

2 electrocuted in city

New Digital Cameras Offer Fresh Perspectives

first_imgSmartphones with dual cameras such as Apple’s iPhone 4 and Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G are tremendously popular lately. But while these cellular handsets sport one lens that faces frontward and the other back, enabling mobile videoconferencing, they’re still in the minority, and most offer only middling photographic resolutions. Thankfully for entrepreneurs who need a new headshot, product images for press kits or a steady stream of pictures to fuel their social media strategy, digital cameras are also adding new perspectives. See Samsung’s new ST100 ($349.99) and ST600 ($329.99), both launching in September, which offer twin LCD displays that promise to greatly aid in capturing the perfect shot.Both models offer 14.2 megapixel photographic resolutions, letting you capture images suitable for use on the web, in print or blown up to larger poster sizes for deployment at events and speaking engagements. Equipped with so-called DualView technology, while neither allows for voice or video calling, the pair does boast 1.8-inch front-facing LCD screens which make it simpler to frame shots as well. As a result, snapping pictures or taping 720p high-definition videos (especially self portraits, group shots or video blogs and diaries) should prove that much more effortless. Because you can see what’s happening and your position in the picture while either camera is actively trained upon you, it takes much of the guesswork out of playing shutterbug.Offered in a sleek form factor, a range of colors and a variety of metallic finishes, the devices also look the part of professional shooters. They act the part almost as well, boasting 5X optical zoom, image stabilization technology and automatic brightness, color and scene mode adjustment. From self-timers to features that prompt photo subjects to simultaneously jump at a set time, expect a number of catchy built-in extras as well. Touch- and motion-sensing capabilities further make it possible to operate the devices just by tilting them or running your finger across their screens. Between face recognition capabilities, slide show options and a rear-mounted 3.5-inch LCD, both offer a full range of standard photographic options out of the box as well.While it may not seem as cost-effective, convenient or sexy to be snapping photos with a standalone device vs. your mobile handset, practicality still demands that dedicated digital cameras be used for professional photo shoots. And given the inherent technical limitations and general lack of adjustable image controls found on the majority of smartphones, it’s easy to justify the investment. Although the ST100 is slightly more expensive, note that it does sport an internal optical zoom that eliminates the need for an outward-bulging lens. Despite the fact that neither choice is liable to floor professional photographers, both models can still quickly empower business owners, resourceful community managers and hard-charging publicists to become amateur paparazzi overnight.

Randi Zuckerberg Dont Search for That PieintheSky Mentor

first_img Register Now » Many entrepreneurs believe that to find success they need to find the perfect mentor — that one person who’s been through it all.But Randi Zuckerberg, a tech investor and media producer, says entrepreneurs shouldn’t waste time on such a pursuit.”A lot of us think that we need to find that pie-in-the-sky mentor who’s going to help with our businesses,” the former director of market development at Facebook told me at CES in the American Greetings booth. “Over the years, I realized that person will always disappoint you, because the kind of stuff you’re working on didn’t exist when they were starting out in their careers, so how are they going to give you advice? When you do connect with them, they won’t have the time for you.”As an alternative, she suggests upcomers find or form a mentor group of peers.”Your peers are going to be the best mentors you’ll ever have, because you can bounce ideas off of them and you will all rise together,” she said.Related: Why Tyra Banks Cold-Called Zappos’s Tony HsiehZuckerberg has taken on a lot of projects since 2011, when she left the company her brother Mark co-founded. She started Zuckerberg Media, performed on Broadway in Rock of Ages, served as a mentor and judge on the TV show Quit Your Day Job and adapted her children’s book, Dot., into a TV series.Zuckerberg’s surprising take on mentors wasn’t the only thing she shared. Here are some other interesting tidbits from our conversation:On this year’s big marketing trend.”It’s really going to come down to storytelling and live video. Video is a way to tell a story that is so much more powerful. I think there’s also a real trend toward going retro. We’re going to see reminders of how we used to get back in touch with people.”On what people really want out of media.”We live in a world where there’s so much noise, you have to almost always create scarcity out of nothing. Live video creates scarcity. A handwritten note is scarcity because your time is valuable. People want to feel like they’re not missing anything. Consumers want to feel unique, special and heard.”On her top tip for an effective Facebook Live.”Start out with some great nuggets of information. For me, whenever I do a Facebook Live, I start out with a top three list or ‘here’s my topic, like or dislike?’ and immediately start to engage people. I think often, people are like, ‘hey, I’m here,’ and you lose people. Also, if you’re going to commit to a Facebook Live, you should be on for 10 minutes. If you’re only going to do it for one or two minutes, you should do a recorded video instead. As soon as possible, make it about the audience.”Related: This Crowdfunding Category Will Blow Up in 2017, Says the CEO of IndiegogoOn what technology she finds most exciting, but also risky for children.”Virtual reality is so exciting to me on so many levels for what can happen in medicine, charitable givings, travel, architecture, you name it. I also think from a kid’s content perspective: What happens when you immerse children in violent video games? What happens 10 years later? Can you create false memories for children if you put them in VR? Do they think they went on a trip they didn’t go on?”On how performing on Broadway inspired her.”It’s so important for all of us to be able to walk a mile in other people’s shoes, to be well rounded and those experiences have helped me in every facet of my entrepreneurial life. It expanded my creativity in so many ways. It forced me into a situation where I had to put my phone down for four hours every night. It showed me a different method of communicating live with an audience in real time and how powerful that could be.”On the role of hobbies and passions for entrepreneurs.”I love technology and the arts, how could these two paths come together so I can do what I really love? With Dot, that is also born of a passion for getting more diversity in technology. As much as I love the innovation in Silicon Valley, you look around the room and things are pretty bleak in terms of women and people in color.

So many women walk into the room and say, ‘I’ve worked hard for this, I deserve this.’ No. That makes me want to give you a hug, not open my checkbook. The other thing is to immediately say at the top of your pitch why you’re the most awesome person to solve this problem. Men always start off their pitches by saying how great they are. For women, it’s a throwaway slide at the back of their decks.”Related: Randi Zuckerberg’s Simple Secret for Juggling Career and KidsOn technology’s role in raising kids (Zuckerberg has two sons).”There are hundreds of ways to introduce children to technology that are creative and fun and doesn’t involve a screen.

UN expert slams censorship by Israel Palestinians

first_img 4 sleep positions for men and what they mean Palestinian government spokesman Ghassan Khatib said the report would be dealt with “positively and seriously.”Palestinian law “guarantees the freedom of the press, and normally we exert all our efforts to guarantee that,” he said.Khatib also said there has been a “major improvement” in press freedom over the past four years. “However, there have been individual, rare cases, but they were solved because of the power of the civil society and public opinion,” he said.In Gaza, the ruling Hamas faction, which seized control of the coastal strip from Abbas’ forces five years ago, has introduced a new requirement for foreign journalists to name a local contact, which could lead to self-censorship, La Rue said. He criticized the excessive force used by Hamas to disperse peaceful protests and cited “arbitrary arrests and detention of protesters and journalists monitoring demonstrations.”Hassan Abu Hashish, chairman of Hamas’ Gaza government press office, called the report “slander.”“Freedom of the media and freedom of speech in the Gaza Strip is well ahead of other Arab countries and the West Bank,” he said. Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Associated PressGENEVA (AP) – The government of Israel, the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Hamas in Gaza are all unduly limiting free speech through restrictive laws, intimidation and censorship, a U.N. human rights expert said Tuesday.The global body’s independent investigator on freedom of expression, Frank La Rue, said the measures have had a chilling effect on the work of journalists and peaceful activists, and urged Israel and the Palestinians to uphold international standards on free speech. Comments   Share   How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates He voiced similar criticism of a bill to amend Israel’s defamation law, which would sharply increase fines without the need to prove damages.“If adopted, it will create a significant chilling effect and will discourage investigative journalists, human rights NGOs and individuals expressing critical views,” said La Rue.Israel should also drop the practice of having a military censor review articles on issues of national security prior to publication, he said.Israeli diplomats in Geneva didn’t comment on the report because the country has officially suspended its work with the 47-nation rights council, which Israel accuses of being biased against it.But in Jerusalem, Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor noted the government “fully cooperated” with La Rue.“We will study his report carefully and seriously,” he said. “We remain totally committed to freedom of speech for all, and we will examine very closely the recommendations with the aim of making whatever improvements may be necessary.”La Rue also criticized the Western-backed Palestinian Authority for requiring publishing licenses and censoring publications according to broad and vague rules. He also expressed concern at reports that Facebook users were harassed for posting unfavorable comments about Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths “I am concerned by the recent attempts to limit criticism of Israel regarding its policies and practices of occupation, and questioning of Israel as a Jewish state,” La Rue said as he presented his report to the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva.He cited a law adopted last year that allows Israeli authorities to fine publicly-funded institutions that commemorate the so-called “Nakba,” or catastrophe, an Arabic term used by Palestinians to describe the displacement of hundreds of thousands of non-Jewish residents during the war surrounding Israel’s creation in 1948.“The law severely undermines their right to freely express their opinion, preserve their history and culture, and to their right to commemorate the Nakba, which is an integral part of their history,” said La Rue.He also questioned an Israeli law that makes it a civil offense to call for a boycott against Israel and its products, as well as those produced in the settlements in the West Bank.“Calling for or participating in a peaceful boycott is a legitimate form of expression which is internationally recognized,” La Rue said in his report. “Moreover, given that lawsuits can be brought against individuals without any proof of damages, it creates further incentives for self-censorship, including on the Internet, to avoid litigation. “ 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Top Stories Sponsored Stories ________________________________________Josef Federman in Jerusalem, Dalia Nammari in Ramallah, West Bank, and Ibrahim Barzak in Gaza City, Gaza Strip, contributed to this report.___Report: http://bit.ly/M3gORH___Ibrahim Barzak in Gaza City, Gaza Strip, contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Turkey plans to start drilling in East Med on October 29

first_imgTurkey plans its exploratory drilling in the Eastern Mediterranean on October 29, it was reported on Monday.Ankara said last week it’s drilling vessel Fatih had already arrived onsite and that training would be conducted with drilling at the end of the month.Necdet Pamir, the Chairman of the Energy Commission of the Republican People’s Party (CHP) and also the chairman of the Committee on Energy Policies of the Chamber of Petroleum Engineers of Turkey, told Sputnik on Monday that the start of exploratory drilling planned for October 29 had a symbolic meaning.“On this day the proclamation of the Republic of Turkey is celebrated. Thus, in the Minister’s statement indicates that there an emphasis on the country’s national interests. In recent years, large-scale hydrocarbon exploration has been carried out in the Eastern Mediterranean region, and large reserves of natural gas have been found in the zone belonging to Israel. We are talking about 1 trillion cubic metres of gas,” he said.Pamir criticised the drilling by the Cyprus government “contrary to Turkish law”, and said Turkish Cypriots also had a right to gas reserves.“However, unfortunately, the Greek side prefers to speculate on this issue, turning it into a bargaining tool,” he added.“The EU and the US are supporting the Greek side in its carrot and stick strategy. In this difficult situation, the presence of Turkey’s own seismic vessel and drilling platform is very important.”According to Sputnik, Pamir also stressed that the move by Turkey would strengthen the positions of Ankara and the ‘TRNC’ during Cyprus negotiations.“If Turkey can find a gas field during the exploration of hydrocarbons that will go on for five months, it will help put an end to the irresponsible and unfair negotiating format which is demonstrated by the Greek side. The Greeks will be forced to change their tactics, and perhaps the whole course of the negotiation process will change. In addition, this step could both help Turkey meet its gas needs and solve the problem of electricity needs of the TRNC,” he said.Andreas Pentaras, the former head of the Cyprus Intelligence Service, also spoke to  Sputnik and said if Turkey started drilling off the coast of Cyprus it could lead to a serious crisis.Pentaras said that although Turkey has not specified the exact location for its drilling plans, previous statements suggested it would be near Antalya and Messina.“At the moment we do not know whether this decision is still in force or whether exploratory work will be carried out elsewhere,” Pentaras said, adding that Turkey has also illegally appropriated most of the exclusive economic zone of Cyprus to the west of Paphos.Ankara appropriated about 30 per cent of the area of blocks 4, 5, 6 and 7 and does not allow Cyprus or other states to operate there. He also referred to Turkish media, according to which drilling will be carried out between blocks 8 and 9 belonging to the Republic of Cyprus.“Therefore, if Turkey’s exploratory drilling will occur in these territories, in other words, in territories belonging to the exclusive economic zones of Cyprus and Greece, problems will arise that will lead to a crisis.” Pentaras told Sputnik.“You understand that if all this is true, we will enter into a serious crisis, and no one knows what kind of consequences it can lead to.”Pentaras said Cyprus and Greece had already taken some steps, in particular, an appeal for the use of “a number of preventive measures by the EU and the UN.”“The Republic of Cyprus has no military means to prevent such actions on the part of Turkey and will be limited to diplomacy,” he added. Pentaras said he believed that if exploratory drilling took place in certain areas it could lead to a serious crisis and in this case, Greece would have to act, “and this may including military means”. However, he said it would not be likely to reach that stage.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
