Since a Buffalo local newspaper published Paladino’s recent disgusting, racist, transphobic remarks aimed at Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, community activists have had multiple demonstrations of hundreds of people rejecting his bigotry.Paladino, who was the New York co-chair for president-elect Donald Trump’s campaign, recently requested that photos of Trump be placed in all Buffalo city schools. Protests are planned to continue until he is removed from the board.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_imgNews June 10, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Disturbing new regulations prior to Olympic Games, increased control in Sichuan Reporters Without Borders condemns new restrictions imposed on foreign visitors to China two months before the Olympic Games and on Chinese “fixers” working for foreign journalists. The authorities have also become more obstructive towards foreign journalists in Sichuan following protests by parents whose children were killed when schools collapsed in the earthquake. Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information June 2, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by the introduction of new rules aimed at reinforcing controls over Chinese “fixers” working for foreign journalists and over all foreigners visiting China during the Olympic Games. The organisation also condemns an increase in police controls of foreign journalists trying to cover protests by parents whose children were killed when schools collapsed in the Sichuan earthquake.”Any hope of seeing China calmly open up ahead of the Olympic Games is gradually vanishing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities have introduced regulations hostile to foreigners, who are suspected of wanting to disrupt the games, and are trying to impose greater controls on Chinese citizens working for foreign reporters. And, on the Propaganda Department’s initiative, the government is restricting the work of the Chinese and international press in Sichuan.””These measures, just two months ahead of the inauguration of the Beijing games, are bordering on paranoia and are a long way from the One World, One Dream slogan. We urge the International Olympic Committee to put pressure on the government to rescind some of these provisions and to ensure that the international press can work freely in Sichuan.”Reporters Without Borders added: “So far, the IOC has not reacted to these archaic regulations, preferring to issue a memo in May reminding national Olympic committees that their athletes should under no circumstances demonstrate at Olympic sites.”Control of Chinese fixersChinese citizens working for foreign news media must now comply with new rules designed to get them to register with the authorities. Reporters Without Borders has obtained a copy of the new rules, which were distributed by the CIECCO, a state entity that is supposed to help foreign companies, including news media, to find Chinese employees.The Beijing Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (BOCOG) has been insisting since January 2007 that the foreign media recruit professionals chosen by official intermediaries as translators. The latest rules want all Chinese working for the foreign media to be registered and suggest that the authorities should “select and name appropriate candidates” for the foreign media.If foreign journalists want to propose their own candidates, they must provide an ID, a curriculum vitae, evidence of no criminal record and a medical certificate. And a contract must be signed between employer and employee.The Foreign Correspondents Club of China told Reporters Without Borders that “hiring and registering assistants through government service agencies potentially increases bureaucracy, expense and oversight by the authorities.” The FCCC hopes the foreign media will eventually be able to hire Chinese as journalists, photographers or cameramen, but for the time being that is not allowed.Reporters Without Borders has also learned of a directive issued by the BOCOG media centre’s visa division telling journalists to submit precise information about coverage plans in China, including the places they want to visit and the people they want to interview, in order to obtain a J-2 visa, which is for media personnel who want to arrive before the 8 August start of the games. The BOCOG also requires a letter from an employer, which effectively eliminates freelancers.These new provisions come at a time when the issuing of multiple-entry visas is being restricted and obtaining tourist or business visas is taking much longer, even through Hong Kong. The government refuses to explain this tougher policy, which seems to be linked to fear of demonstrations during the games.Call to order for foreignersThe BOCOG issued a set of guidelines for foreigners visiting the games on 2 June. In a question-and-answer format and so far only in Chinese, the guidelines tell foreigners they “must respect Chinese laws while in China and must not harm China’s national security or damage the social order.”They say “terrorists,” sex workers, drug traffickers, people suffering from AIDS or tuberculosis and “subversives” are banned from entering China. Some of the guidelines directly target those who would like to demonstrate during the games. “Public gatherings, marches and demonstrations cannot take place without prior permission from the police.” They also restrict freedom of opinion, forbidding foreigners from bringing with them documents, disks or audio recordings critical of China.Media obstructed in SichuanBecause of the anger of the parents of children killed in schools in Sichuan, the authorities have tended to obstruct the work of the foreign media in the province. On 6 June, two Agence France-Presse journalists were prevented from entered Wufu, a city where demonstrations took place after a primary school collapsed.Foreign reporters were briefly detained and expelled on 5 June from Juyuan and Hanwang, two towns where schools collapsed. Photographers were removed from a demonstration by about 100 parents in Dujiangyan on 3 June, and a reporter and photographer from the Japanese news agency Kyodo were detained for several hours. According to the FCCC, two Dutch journalists were stopped by the police when they tried to go to Dujiangyan.The Chinese press has been forbidden to cover the collapsed schools story freely. Chinese journalists told the New York Times that the order came from Beijing. The website of the Hong Kong-based China Media Project ( reported that the Guangdong province Communist Party’s propaganda ordered the local media to pull their journalists out of Sichuan. The site also reported that Li Changchun, the Communist Party’s propaganda chief, went to Sichuan.The public security department has been told to put a stop to the “illegal gatherings” and to pressure the families of victims to stop talking to the foreign press. State media propaganda continues to praise the government’s efforts. State-owned CCTV’s website even went so far as to portray a demonstration in homage to the victims of the Tiananmen Square massacre of 4 June 1989 as a homage to the victims of the 12 May earthquake.Finally, BOCOG intransigence on security issues is giving rise to tension with international TV stations that acquired broadcasting rights. The Associated Press reported on 8 June that there were angry tensions at a meeting in Beijing at the end of May between the BOCOG, the IOC and international TV stations over China’s refusal to permit live coverage of events in certain places such as Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, and delays in granting permission for broadcast equipment.

first_imgNews UpdatesBombay High Court Asks Lawyer To Make Test Call To Pune COVID Control Room To Check Bed Availability Sharmeen Hakim12 May 2021 10:02 PMShare This – xAfter a test call was made to the COVID control room of Pune, the Bombay High Court was informed that there were no ventilator beds available in Pune.A bench comprising Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta and Justice GS Kulkarni was dealing with the Covid -19 situation in Pune, as it has earlier observed that the active cases in Pune are more than double of the active cases in Mumbai.Pune Municipal Corporation’s counsel Abhijit Kulkarni submitted that the city has everything in control and was catering to at least 30% of patients visiting from outside. He said that as of May 9, the district has 28,431 hospitalised cases of covid-19 and over 68,000 patients in-home quarantine. Out of this, Pune City has close to 8,000 people in hospitals. He submitted that PMC had increased the number of beds from 4,000 in February to 12,000 in May.Advertisement Kulkarni submitted two numbers with 18 lines in the 24/7 Corona Control Room. Advocate Inamdar opposed Kulkarni’s claims and said ICU beds were not available.The bench then asked Inamdar to call the Control Room and put the handset on a loud- speaker. The lady on the opposite line said there was no ventilator bed available when he called.Kulkarni attempted to say that Inamdar’s tone was confrontational. However, the response from the control room was the same even when the bench asked a few doctors present during the proceeding to call.Advertisement “If someone calls in distress, the call centre should ask for the details,even that was not done,” Justice Kulkarni remarked.”These matters require intense sensitivity. The commissioner should know that his job isn’t over by just filing an affidavit. The (Pune) corporation has to ensure that the people for whom the corporation exists are treated with sensitivity,” the bench added.Kulkarni said he would brief the officers accordingly.Advertisement Advertisement The Court also pointed out an India today report on the sorry situation on Palghar.”Mr Pankaj Upadhyay is a reporter. He visited Palghar. What we saw was unbelievable. At the Palghar hospital, there were no beds, no facilities. Patients are lying on the floor. It was an eye-opener,” Justice Kulkarni said.”You will have to stop the infection at the threshold,” the CJ told the State, “We have taken stock of the situation in MMR; now we’ll be moving towards the rural areas. There is nothing on record about rural areas.”The case will now be heard on May 19.Tags#Bombay High Court Pune COVID -19 Chief Justice Dipankar Dutta Justice GS Kulkarni Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Gillette’s merger success helped by talking to staffOn 13 Mar 2001 in Personnel Today Gillette’sinternal communication strategy played an important part in the success of thecompany’s recent merger activity, claimed its director of communications at aconference in London earlier this month. Paul Foxplayed a key role in shaping Gillette’s internal communication strategy whenthe company merged with Oral B, Duracell, Braun and SPG in 1998. Gillettealready owned the four brands but the decision was taken to merge to form TheGillette Company to increase efficiency and to cut costs.Fox,speaking at a conference on internal communication, said one of the mostimportant judgements was when to inform employees.Hesaid, “As information specialists we need to be involved from the start ofnegotiations. It is valuable information because it has an impact on thecompetitive position of the business.”Hestressed that the different companies involved in the merger had to worktogether to ensure the message they were giving to staff was coordinated.Foxsaid that a clear consistent message had to be communicated to employees acrossall the firms’ business units as well as to trade unions, the media, investorsand analysts.Hetold the conference that the merger or acquisition process should be labelled”evolution rather than change” because of its more positive meaning.”Weneed to clarify why – why now, where are the benefits, what were thealternatives and why are we merging with these people.” Fox said it isalso important to establish a timetable for the merger process and createeffective feedback channels so staff can put across their views.Gilletteused the intranet to answer frequently asked questions and to invite specificfeedback as well as utilising the monthly staff payroll to ensure all employeeswere informed about what was going on.Foxsaid Gillette had used one of its most charismatic members of staff to talk toemployees about the merger to give it a positive spin. He concluded, “Ifyou want to get an idea across wrap it up in a person.”ByBen Willmottlast_img read more

first_imgPetrels are highly mobile seabirds that face many threats and whose conservation is frequently hampered by a lack of understanding of their biology at sea. We used a combination of data from burrow monitoring and geolocation-immersion loggers to study the intra-and inter-seasonal distribution and behaviour of the endangered Chatham Petrel (Pterodroma axillaris), breeding on Rangatira Island, New Zealand. Breeding extended from November to June with a pre-laying exodus of 35 days; an incubation period of 46 days, with up to five incubation shifts; and a chick-rearing period of 87 days, including a desertion period of 10 days. When breeding, Chatham Petrels foraged between the Subtropical Convergence and Subantarctic Fronts, moving 2000-3000 km to the south-east of the Chatham Islands, during the pre-laying exodus and incubation period, but restricting foraging to the south of the Chatham Islands, around the Bollons Seamount, during chick-rearing. Between April and June birds migrated east and north to core non-breeding distributions similar to 1000 km from the coast of Peru and Chile. Birds spent a greater proportion of time resting and nocturnally active during the non-breeding period than when breeding, when birds where active during darkness and daylight. These data contribute to the conservation management of the Chatham Petrel and to conservation initiatives to identity marine protected areas for endangered seabirds on the high seas beyond national jurisdictions.last_img read more

first_imgHome » News » Agencies & People » ‘Lack of evidence’ gives tenants advantage in disputes previous nextAgencies & People‘Lack of evidence’ gives tenants advantage in disputesCleaning remains the most common cause of dispute, appearing in 53 per cent of all cases research reveals.PROPERTYdrum1st May 20150583 Views A high volume of tenants are continuing to win deposit scheme disputes due to a lack of evidence, according to Imfuna Let, which has commented on the issue in light of statistics from the Tenant Deposit Scheme Annual Review 2014.According to the Review, since the tenant deposit schemes initiative came into force in 2007, tenants have won 100 per cent of a deposit more often than landlords.The figures reveal that renters have received the full deposit in 20.25 per cent of cases, compared to 18.21 per cent for landlords. Furthermore, the dispute amounts have leapt from £736 in 2010-2011 to £860 in 2013-2014.Cleaning remains the most common cause of dispute, appearing in 53 per cent of all cases. This is followed by damage (46 per cent), redecoration (29 per cent), arrears (16 per cent) and gardening (14 per cent).“Despite the best efforts of the deposit schemes, landlords and agents are not being awarded 100 per cent of the deposit as often as tenants,” said JaxKneppers, Founder and CEO of Imfuna Let. “It is worth asking ourselves why landlords have failed to improve their success rate at disputes over the last few years? One obvious reason is the quality and lack of evidence which is presented at adjudications.Kneppers believes that far too many landlords and agents are not conducting an adequate inventory or check-in and check-out and are failing to keep copies of correspondence with the tenant, which could be evidence in a dispute.He added,“It is so important that landlords and agents have a properly compiled inventory. This will always be much more detailed than a landlord’s own document and will provide vital evidence in any end of tenancy dispute. The tenants should check and sign their agreement detailing the inventory when they check-in.”Separate research found that more than half of tenants – 52 per cent – experienced difficulties with their landlord when it came to the return of the deposit.The survey, conducted by removals company Kiwi Movers, revealed that only one in five got their full deposit back without any problems while over a quarter – 28 per cent – said they managed to get their deposit back in full only after a dispute with the landlord or letting agency.Kiwi Movers Director, Regan McMillan, said, “We’ve seen an increase in customers hiring professional cleaners before checking out of a rented property. It seems to be the only way to counter what they see as the inevitable attempts to withhold part of their deposit. Our customers tell us they feel vulnerable unless they have paperwork to prove that they left the property in an acceptable state. Moving is stressful enough without having to worry about having your deposit unfairly withheld.”Meanwhile, almost half of tenants – 47 per cent – do not trust letting agents to protect their interests, according to a new survey by online tenant portal, The Tenants’ Voice.Some 52 per cent of those polled feel that letting agents do the bare minimum to provide services in line with the duty of care they owe to tenants, while more than a quarter – 28 per cent – believe agents do not provide them with a suitable duty of care.On a more positive note, almost three quarters – 73 per cent – of respondents polled by The Tenants’ Voice agreed that the ‘right’ letting agent can improve the renting experience.Glenn Nickols, Founder of The Tenants’ Voice, commented, “What’s clearly lacking in the relationship between tenants and letting agents is trust. In some cases it’s there, but in many more it’s not. Given the vast number of people who rent these days, the fact that nearly half do not feel like their interests are being protected by agents should make the industry sit up.“More needs to be done to drive awareness of the various schemes that exist to protect tenants’ interests, too. Many tenants are having to find their way in the dark and the industry often appears happy for them to do so.”tenants deposit schemes initiative disputes May 1, 2015The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?
