Favela reporters censored by army, wave of attacks on regional journalists

first_imgNews October 19, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Favela reporters censored by army, wave of attacks on regional journalists RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America Organisation 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies The army’s attempts to “pacify” and secure Brazil’s favelas and crack down on their drug traffickers before the 2014 Football World Cup and 2016 Olympic Games are raising concern about the accompanying violations of human rights and civil liberties in these communities, including the rights of their own journalists.News reporting by the residents of these poor neighbourhoods should enjoy the same safety guarantees and freedom from censorship as reporting by Brazil’s mainstream media.A series of incidents this month in Complexo do Alemão, a conglomeration of 13 favelas in Rio de Janeiro, has set a disturbing precedent and highlighted a reluctance on the part of the military to accept grass-roots reporting.They began on 2 October when favela reporter Patrick Granja filmed a video showing a resident being beaten up by eight soldiers. Receive email alerts Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil BrazilAmericas It circulated online and was posted on the websites of the newspaper A Nova Democracia (AND) and the Favela news agency, Agencia da Noticias das Favelas (ANF).The next day, reporters from AND and ANF were censored in the same favela by soldiers, who ordered them to stop filming. Follow the news on Brazil May 13, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News to go further BrazilAmericas Reports After being told they needed an army permit to film, the reporters were themselves filmed by the soldiers.“Despite the army command’s subsequent apology and attempt to portray the incident as a ‘misinterpreted order,’ there are grounds for asking whether certain zones or neighbourhoods in Brazil are subject to a state emergency in which the normal right to report news and information is suspended,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We share the concern expressed by ANF. According to Complexo do Alemão’s inhabitants, restrictions were also imposed on an SBT TV crew. The fight against organized crime is necessary, but it should not lead to the creation of enclaves in which there is less respect for certain basic civil liberties than elsewhere. The defence ministry must be quite clear on this point.”Brazil’s journalists are exposed to a great deal of violence in certain regions, especially when they work for local, community or alternative media. The same applies to bloggers Since the start of the year, a total of four journalists have been killed in direct or probable connection with their work. Real efforts have been made to combat impunity in such cases but with mixed results.Three serious cases of violence against journalists in different regions were reported within a few days of each other earlier this month. They require an urgent response from the authorities. The first was on 3 October, when shots were fired at the home of Cid Ferreira, the host of political and social programmes on community radio Araibú FM in Russas, in the northeastern state of Ceará.Two days later, shots were fired at the car of Sérgio Ricardo de Almeida da Luz, a radio reporter who covers crime in Toledo, in the southern state of Paraná. Finally, on 9 October, journalist Antonio Carlos Ferrari was attacked in public in Itaporã, in the southwestern state of Mato Grosso do Sul, by two members of a rural land-owning family accused of using slave labour.

U.S. Coal Industry Bailout Plan Would Cost Customers as Much as $288 Billion

first_imgU.S. Coal Industry Bailout Plan Would Cost Customers as Much as $288 Billion FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享SNL:The U.S. Department of Energy’s proposal to prop up financially struggling coal and nuclear plants by ensuring they can recover all their costs would carry a big price tag for consumers, according to the PJM Interconnection’s independent market monitor and other stakeholders.Many market participants already have voiced strong opinions, and costs are a key point of criticism. Monitoring Analytics LLC, PJM’s independent market monitor, said the DOE proposal would increase costs to customers by between $18 billion and $288 billion over ten years, depending on what percentage of replacement costs are paid to coal and nuclear units not currently subject to cost-of-service regulation.Monitoring Analytics therefore said the proposal “does not serve the public interest” and urged FERC to reject the DOE’s request. Among other complaints, the market monitor said the proposal would “impose significant costs on customers” by requiring regional transmission organizations and independent system operators to allow plants with at least 90 days of fuel on-site — chiefly coal and nuclear plants — to fully recover their costs.“Approving the DOE proposal would replace regulation through competition with an unworkable hybrid of competitive markets and cost-of-service regulation,” Monitoring Analytics said. “The eventual result would be the demise of competitive markets in the PJM region.”In addition to direct costs, the market monitor said the DOE directive would impose major opportunity costs by undermining incentives to build new, more efficient resources “that are at the heart of existing competitive markets.”“The artificial retention of uneconomic resources will crowd out economic resources and weaken or eliminate the incentives for competitive new entry,” Monitoring Analytics said. “It would be ironic if cost-of-service regulation were reintroduced in order to preserve nuclear and coal power plants that have been demonstrated by the market to be uneconomic.”More ($): Market monitor: DOE proposal could cost up to $288B over 10 yearslast_img read more

Ebangwese fueling Syracuse’s success with spirit and energy

first_imgAgainst Georgia Tech last Sunday, the scoreboard read 20-19 in the second set as head coach Leonid Yelin challenged a call that would impact the momentum of the set. With so much at stake, many players stood waiting for the call, but Santita Ebangwese did not.The SU junior danced to the beat of the music, helping to ease the tension in the Women’s Building.“I’ve always been a boisterous, loud, a very active child,” Ebangwese said. “Into adulthood it hasn’t really changed much.”When Syracuse (14-7, 6-2 Atlantic Coast) takes the court, there’s no denying the identity of its vocal leader. Ebangwese’s positive energy has fueled Syracuse’s success this season, as she always looks to both pick up teammates after mistakes and congratulate them after big plays. While she said she doesn’t know where she gets it from, she carries it with her everywhere she goes.“I don’t know where it comes from,” Ebangwese said. “I was born that way, and I’ve always had a lot of energy.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn the court, Ebangwese has been crucial both offensively and defensively for the Orange. She’s second on the team in kills with 183, averaging 8.7 per game. Ebangwese also boasts the highest attack percentage — kills minus errors, divided by attack attempts — on the team at .394.Defensively, as starting middle blocker, Ebangwese has nearly twice as many blocks (107) as the second leading blocker, Christina Oyawale (56).Whenever Ebangwese skies for a kill, she takes two strides up to the net, glides through the air and mashes the ball, often into the ground. Then, the Orange rejoice with its trademark celebration: The team looks at one another in the circle, both hands in the air, before flicking their wrists down as if they were blocking a volleyball. They let out a yell, “Wah-ooo!”“It’s fun when everyone is playing well and you’re having long rallies,” sophomore outside hitter Kendra Lukacs said, “the level of volleyball is elevating.”The Orange has already doubled last season’s win total, with 12 games remaining on the regular season schedule. The competition within the team has ramped up the fight for playing time.“We all want to play good volleyball,” Lukacs said. “Winning really helps our team spirit.” Comments Published on October 15, 2017 at 9:27 pm Contact Anthony: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

49ers reminded of Colin Kaepernick in responses to team’s posts about Blackout Tuesday

first_imgNearly every sports team participated in Blackout Tuesday by posting a black square and otherwise stopping their social media activity for the day. The posts are in support of the Black Lives Matter movement following George Floyd’s death and the protests that are ongoing across the nation.The San Francisco 49ers were one of the NFL teams that participated in the movement, posting across all their social media feeds. The team also darkened its Twitter profile picture in solidarity. However, the tweet was not entirely met with support. San Francisco defensive end Nick Bosa also caught the eye of Twitter users as a response to the 49ers’ post. This wasn’t because Bosa was outspoken about the protests, but because users remembered some old social media activity from Bosa that surfaced during the draft process in 2019.Bosa, a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, called Kaepernick a “clown” in a now-deleted tweet, with several other homophobic, xenophobic and racists tweets and Instagram posts coming to light before the 2019 draft.Nick Bosa seeing this post: https://t.co/dJ26R0qj3X pic.twitter.com/CO75TrduCU— Josh (@jetsfan24x7) June 2, 2020Nick Bosa just requested a trade https://t.co/MqtvaUYmd2— E.D.

While Kaepernick technically opted out of his contract, the 49ers informed the quarterback they were planning to release him. Kaepernick became a free agent on March 9, 2017, and has yet to take another snap for any team.Kaepernick first started his protest of racial injustice and police brutality in the 2016 preseason by sitting, then taking a knee during the national anthem before games. As he explained after the third preseason game, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”Because the 49ers parted ways with Kaepernick, many felt the team’s Blackout Tuesday post shouldn’t have been sent. The tweet was met with a number of responses featuring Kaepernick’s name or images of the quarterback taking a knee.Hypocrisy: the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.— Eric Reid (@E_Reid35) June 2, 2020pic.twitter.com/NSTb1pIUW5— Drew (@SoCal_D) June 2, 2020THE HYPOCRISY pic.twitter.com/1xSkWzeANj— Don’t be sorry, Be careful (@LamarWendy) June 2, 2020Acknowledge that y’all were apart of the problem too pic.twitter.com/QYHsVXTvbq— Dee Holt ❄️➏ (@D_1andOnly_) June 2, 2020I KNOW you lying!

Steve Ballmer debuts as LA Clippers owner

first_imgNew Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer, right, shares a laugh with head coach Doc Rivers, second from right, Chris Paul, third from right, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan, left, while speaking at the Clippers Fan Festival on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, in LA. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong)LOS ANGELES (AP) – Sweating, clapping and shouting until he was nearly hoarse, Steve Ballmer introduced himself to Los Angeles Clippers fans at a rally on Monday celebrating his new ownership of the NBA team.The former Microsoft CEO made his way through the crowd inside Staples Center to Eminem’s “Lose Yourself,” exchanging high-fives and chest-bumping as he took the stage in front of 4,500 fans.Ballmer paid a record $2 billion for the team in a sale that was confirmed by a judge last week. The name of disgraced former owner Donald Sterling, who controlled the team for 33 years before being banned for life by the NBA for racist remarks, was never uttered during the rally.“We’re looking forward,” Ballmer proclaimed, having removed his blue Clippers hat. “Everything is about looking forward.”Ballmer’s fervor was in stark contrast to Sterling, who never spoke to the media and was famously frugal when it came to spending on the team during decades of losing – despite having amassed a fortune through real estate.“Today is about this other guy who just happened to have two billion dollars in his pocket,” coach Doc Rivers joked on stage. “I asked him are you sure it went through and he said, ‘I know my bank account is minus two billion so I know something went through.’”Ballmer gave out his email address during the televised rally and was quick to assure fans he won’t move the team to Seattle, where he’s lived for 34 years. He was nearly an NBA owner last year before league owners chose to keep the Kings in Sacramento, rather than allow them to be sold to a group that included Ballmer and moved to Seattle.“I love Los Angeles,” he said. “Yes, I live in Seattle. We’re not moving the Clippers to Seattle for a hundred reasons.”Ballmer used a microphone, but his booming voice easily filled the arena without it. He prowled the stage and gestured to make his points in the enthusiastic style he was known for among Microsoft employees.“We’re going to be bold. Bold means taking chances,” he said. “We’re going to be optimistic. We’re going to be hard-core. Nothing gets in our way, boom! The hard-core Clippers, that’s us.”Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan were among eight players on hand, along with Rivers, who guided the Clippers to 57 wins last season, his first with the team.“When he came through the crowd, I literally had goose bumps,” Griffin said afterward. “I don’t know if there’s one good word to describe him. I know all our guys are excited about the energy he brings. It’s completely different.”Ballmer took a few emailed questions from season ticketholders, including a 26-year fan who asked how the next 26 years of the franchise would be different.“I’ll boldly say the Clippers will win many, many more Larrys in the next 26 years than they did in the last 26,” he said, referring to the Larry O’Brien trophy that goes to the NBA champion.Rivers clearly got a kick out of Ballmer’s passionate display, cracking up at his new boss’ proclamations after having previously seen him only on YouTube.“I love energy,” Rivers said later. “You get caught up in that and that’s good. That was great for our fans.”Interim CEO Dick Parsons testified during the court battle over the team’s sale that Rivers would quit if Sterling was the owner going into next season.“Sometimes you do have to take a stand,” Rivers said. “I didn’t think I was going to have to (quit), but a lot of us were willing to for sure.”He added, “You always have to move on. I have.”Ballmer gave the title “owner emeritus” to Sterling’s estranged wife, Shelly, who negotiated the deal. She will receive two floor seats, 10 other seats and parking at Staples Center for games.“Without her this deal does not get done,” Rivers said afterward. “She wants to be a fan. She’s no longer the owner. I’m fine with that.”Ballmer shared dinner with Rivers and some of the players a night earlier, when the discussion focused on where he’ll sit during games. Sterling sat at mid-court within earshot of the players.When someone suggested behind the Clippers’ bench, like Dallas owner Mark Cuban does, Rivers said, “I don’t know if I could deal with that energy.”last_img read more

Silver medal for Nelson Bantams at West Kootenay Championships

first_img The Leafs opened with a narrow 7-5 victory over a persistent Grand Forks team. Nelson’s goals came from Blair Sookro with two, Mike Zarikoff with four,  including an empty net goal with 12 seconds left, and Alex Laing.In Game 2 the Leafs defeated Greater Trail #3 5-2.Zarikoff finished with two goals, and singles came from Max Spielman, Nick Haydu, and Ethan Grill. The Leafs’ third game was against Boundary.  The final featured the Leafs against a very strong Couer d’ Alene team that defeated Nelson earlier in the year 8-2. Couer d’ Alene struck first to end the opening period 1-0.  Midway through the second period Couer d’ Alene added two quick goals to end the period 3-0.Early in the third period Nelson coach Dave Zarikoff was handed an unsportsmanlike bench penalty for questioning an obvious icing call. Alex Laing was able to net a shorthanded goal and close the Couer d’ Alene lead to 3-1. With 6:29 left Mike Zarikoff fired one past Couer d’ Alene’s goaltender to close the gap to 3-2 but time ran out on the Nelson Minor Hockey squad. Nelson squeaked out a one goal victory during regular season play and expected to have their hands full. However, the Leafs  jumped out to a quick 5-1 lead by the end of the first period and cruised to an easy 11-2 victory.Zarikoff scored five times, with Sookro and Spielman each netting a pair and singles coming from Grill and Ava Young. Sunday morning the Leafs faced Greater Trail #1 in one of the semi-final games. Greater Trail defeated playoff favourites Couer d’ Alene earlier in preliminary round play 4-1. The Leaf’s were firing on all cylinders jumping out to a quick 5-0 lead after one period, before skating to a 12-1 victory. The game turned into a penalty filled contest with no fewer than 4 Greater Trail players being ejected from the game and ending with 65 minutes in penalties. Nelson came away with 24 minutes. Leafs goals came from Zarikoff with four, Spielman had three and Sookro and Grill adding a pair each. Assistant captain Ava Young chipped in with the other Nelson goal.center_img The Nelson Bantam Leafs came within one goal of winning the West Kootenay Minor Hockey League banner recently in Castlegar. Couer d’ Alene built up a 3-0 lead en route to a 3-2 victory over the Nelson Leafs at the Bantam House Championships.”(Coaches) were very happy with the teams success all year,” said Leafs coach Dave Zarikoff.”The Leafs fought valiantly to try and tie it up,” Zarikoff added about the final game.”Unfortunately time ran out and Couer d’ Alene skated away with the banner.”Nelson went 3-0 in the preliminary round to end up seeded #1 going into the playoff round. Zarikoff said Nelson received outstanding goaltending all weekend from the duo of Kylan Palm and Josh Marsden while team Captain Noah Whiffen and Assistant Captain Cale O’Meara, along with Keanu Tromans, Young, and Haydu anchored the defense. Forward Noah Marsh was outstanding, often being the first player back and pestered teams all weekend with his checking.last_img read more

Big day for RSPL’s cellar dwellers

first_imgThe possession of the worst record over the last five games in the Red Stripe Premier League could seriously cost one of the more storied clubs in local football when the final whistles are blown today to signal the end of the 2015/2016 Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) regular season. Four losses in the last five games including three successive ones over the last three games and the only other result being a draw means that Cavalier have attempted the tragic act of committing suicide. Only a miracle or a lack of interest in the proceedings by their opponents, Tivoli Gardens who have very little to play for, could save them. With two teams set to be relegated the lower leagues today, Cavalier, who just weeks ago were in with a chance, albeit slim, of finishing in the top four now find themselves the second least likely team to survive of the four that could go down. Of the four the favourites tag still belongs to Waterhouse who have basically made the relegation zone their residence more most of the season. Waterhouse have shown fight of late and with a victory over Boys’ Town today could end up on a maximum 34 points, one above the total currently held by both Cavalier and Rivoli. Their survival therefore depends on the loss of both teams and in the event of a Rivoli draw Waterhouse would have to win by at least five clear goals – improbable. Cavalier can end the season with a maximum 36 points and stay up but would have to beat Tivoli Gardens and see Rivoli lose to Humble Lion or Reno lose to UWI FC. The University team still has chance of being on the right side of another decision to be made today that of the fourth semi-finalists and they will not give up that fight easily even though Reno will be at home. That situation makes Cavalier’s task much tougher.  Today’s games 3:30 p.m: Portmore United vs Arnett Gardens – Juici Park, Clarendon 3:30 p.m: Montego Bay United vs Harbour View – Montego Bay Sports Complex 3:30 p.m:  Reno vs UWI FC – Frome Complex 3:30 p.m: Humble Lion vs  Rivoli United F – Effortville Community Centre 3:30pm Tivoli Gardens United vs Cavalier – Edward Seaga Stadium 3:30 p.m: Waterhouse vs Boys’ Town – Drewsland Stadium Points standing                         P         W        D         L     GF       GA      GD      Pts    Portmore                    32       18         7       7         41      26        15       61      Arnett                         32       17         6        9        46       28       18       57  MoBay United            32       15        11      6         51       26       25       56 Humble Lion FC        32       12          11       9       28      27        1         47 UWI FC                     32      12           10     10       37      40       -3         46      H.View                        32      10           13       9       39      32        7        43     Tivoli                                 32        11              7        14        38        40         -2          40 Boys’ Town                 32      10          8        14      35       49      -14       38    Reno                            32        7          13      12       34      52      -18        34  Rivoli                           32       8           9       15        38      45        -7       33 Cavalier SC                 32       8           9       15        24       35       -11      33 Waterhouse                 32       7          10      15       29        40      -11       31last_img read more
