He had vanished on 21 October and police said he had gone the next day to Belarus intending to kill himself.”We have asked Ukrainian prosecutor-general Svyatoslav Piskun to investigate why he left Ukraine, which is still quiet unclear, but have not yet had a reply,” Ménard said.Earlier this month, an enquiry in Belarus by the Ukrainian League of Economic Journalists and the Institute of Mass Information (IMI) found no proof of an attack on Kolomiets but did not rule out that he may have been subjected to psychological pressure to kill himself.Friends and colleagues have rejected the suicide theory and say his death may have been connected with his work and political and economic news put out by the news agency that may have angered powerful people and interests.Kolomiets, 44, founded the agency in 1997 and had a half share in it, with the other half held by the Agency for Humanitarian Technologies headed by Valery Khoroshkovsky, a close associate of President Kuchma. His widow Ludmyla said publicly on 16 December last that her husband had been threatened and harassed in the months before he died.

Issues discussed at Spaghetti with Sandy

first_img Local NewsEducation Issues discussed at Spaghetti with Sandy By admin – February 15, 2018 University of Texas of the Permian Basin President Sandra Woodley answers a students question about online classes during “Spaghetti with Sandy” Wednesday in the Student Activity Center. Registration set for engineering camp OCA top 2 were ESL students Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Facebook University of Texas of the Permian Basin President Sandra Woodley said she has requested a little more than $3 million from the UT System to renovate the Student Activity Center and offer a one-stop shop for students who need to pay bills or register.Woodley told about 60 people attending Spaghetti with Sandy at the Student Activity Center that she has asked Chartwells, the university’s food service company, about getting a Chick-fil-A in the building. She also would like to have the food service stay open later at the SAC and has asked Chartwells to offer vending machines with more substantial items than candy bars when Starbucks is closed that way students can hang out, study and watch TV with friends.In addition, Woodley said she has talked for the past two months about a campus transformation project and plans to bring in architects to formulate a facilities master plan.Woodley said the quad doesn’t get used as much as it could because it has grass burs and there is no shade or a comfortable place to sit outside the Student Activity Center.She said she would also like to renovate the lobby of the Mesa Building to create a welcome center so people can get their questions answered and create better way-finding signs so people know where to go.Woodley added that she would like to grow the amenities offered and ensure that students have clubs. Students also are concerned about security, so she would like to make sure that the parking lot lights stay on longer. She said a proposed tuition and fees increase that regents will vote on in March could fund some of the items on her list.Woodley added that she is looking for student input on campus transformation plans. She said the students’ list is surprisingly similar to hers. Examples are beautifying the campus, having functional spaces for the students to study longer and making sure that the food is good.Students who are of age have also asked about being able to drink on campus under certain conditions and at events. Woodley said the police department has made a recommendation for that, as well, for safety.She said there have been instances where students have declined to call police because if they were robbed, for example, because they had been drinking and there is a no-tolerance policy for alcohol on campus.“We’ll work through that. Generally, I think we need to allow opportunities for adults to be responsible. That’s my own personal opinion. It’s going through the vetting process. I’ll make a decision on that pretty soon,” Woodley said. “Along the same vein, I think we ought to have opportunities for pets on campus in some of the dorms. …”Student Senate member Jasmine Nelson has been to several of the forums with the president.“I get to hear the issues from a more personal aspect in the Senate. I also like to see that the rest of the student body is interacting and trying to get more information about what’s going on on campus,” Nelson said.More Information UTPB.

Pokie payment change ‘giant leap backwards’

first_imgNZ Herald 26 May 2014A new commission structure for pubs with pokie machines is being condemned by anti-gambling lobbyists as “a giant leap backwards”.The move to a commission system, announced by Internal Affairs Minister Peter Dunne last week, overturns a clause of the 2003 Gambling Act that prohibited commission payments for pokie operators because they would give publicans an incentive to promote gambling.Instead, publicans and other venue operators have only been allowed to claim “actual, reasonable and necessary costs” up to a maximum of 16 per cent of their pokie proceeds.Former Problem Gambling Foundation chief executive John Stansfield, who lobbied for the current law back in 2003, said some venues before then were receiving commissions that were “wildly outside costs”.“I found a pub in South Auckland that was getting $500,000 a year from pokies,” he said.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11261626Investigation affects funding to racingOtago Daily Times 26 May 2014Millions of dollars of pokies cash has stopped flowing into the coffers of the racing industry as a major joint agency investigation unfolds.Last year, Operation Chestnut was launched by the Department of Internal Affairs, the Serious Fraud Office and police into the alleged manipulation of $30 million of gaming grants.The investigation involves several trusts named previously by the Otago Daily Times as the New Zealand Community Trust (NZCT), Bluegrass, and Infinity Foundation.Those trusts have previously granted large sums to the racing industry, including Southern racing interests, but since confirmation of the investigation, some have pulled back their funding.Figures released to the ODT show between 2005 and 2014, more than 50 charitable trusts had pumped $130 million in the racing industry; from a high of $23 million in 2009, to $7.5 million last year.http://www.odt.co.nz/news/dunedin/303567/investigation-affects-funding-racinglast_img read more
