Same old problems for Scotland

first_imgIf the price of tries is sacrificing some players and making a slightly untested selection decision, then it simply has to be done.Scotland versus Wales at the Millennium Stadium could be a dizzying affair, but perhaps only if Scotland can break out of the shackles and take some risks. Here’s hoping. The most frustrating aspect for the fans was that there were opportunities and the opposition left gaps for the Scots. The coaches will be annoyed that Chris Robshaw slowed ball well at the breakdown, that service was poor and the hefty pack looked under pressure in the scrum, but all of these cannot hide the fact that possession was wasted.The man at No 10: should it be Dan Parks or…Maybe there will be a scapegoat made out of Dan Parks. In truth he was passable. He distributed well when moving and he looked to be happy to supply Sean Lamont, but his kicking was not as effective as one would have expected. He regularly found Ben Foden in open play and the charge down from Charlie Hodgson seemed to sum-up an uncomfortable afternoon.Who knows, he may be ostracised completely and cast aside completely so that Duncan Weir and Greig Laidlaw can fight it out for the No 10 jersey. However, with a change at half-back will there still be the problem of converting possession and commanding field-position into scores. Against Wales there has to be an onus on the backs to make the line breaks and finish off their work, because the chances will not keep coming from the forwards.…Edinburgh’s Greig LaidlawSo what should happen? Well, Scotland have to gamble now.Andy Robinson has said it’s a case of continuing to work hard and captain Ross Ford has said the players, behind closed doors are well aware of the issues but caution has to be throw to the wind or Robinson’s reputation will come under increasing scrutiny. Stunted progress cannot go on unchecked for the rest of this tournament. NOT FOR FEATURED LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Make or break: Ross Rennie on the charge against England – but Scotland didn’t take their chancesBy Alan DymockThe Auld Enemy came and an old problem reared its ugly head. Scotland had a huge amount of possession but could not convert that into points.The official stats tell us Scotland should have won the game. England missed 16 tackles and made only 72 passes. They had a committed defence, yet looked unlikely to build a try through stringing together phases. They did, however, score a try from pressuring slow Scottish ball and charging down a Dan Parks clearance that had to be made on the try-line.It would have been a fantastic moment for England fans but in Scotland, as the dust begins to settle, it is now a case of frustrations turning into seething anger.Officially Frank Hadden won more RBS 6 Nations games in a campaign than Andy Robinson has in all of his campaigns combined, and after several years the problem of turning possession into a ‘dot down’ looms writ large. Scotland have not scored a try since their opening game of the Rugby World Cup, against Romania. Even more damning, they have not scored a try against England at Murrayfield since 2004.On Saturday, there were chances aplenty. Jim Hamilton made a bullocking run and the ball was lost in panic. Then Ross Rennie burst through to create a two-on-one but the ball was eventually slapped down by Ben Foden before a try-scoring offload could be made.There is an uncertainty when Scotland reach the opposition 22 that is stifling their progress. There seems to be no conviction from Scotland about putting a man a pass through to score.last_img read more

No progress in investigation into Veracruz journalist’s abduction

first_img May 5, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is very concerned about the lack of progress and poor coordination in the investigation into the disappearance of Moisés Sánchez Cerezo, a blogger and online newspaper editor, who was kidnapped from his home in Medellín de Bravo, a municipality in the eastern state of Veracruz, on 2 January. MexicoAmericas Receive email alerts RSF_en Follow the news on Mexico News MexicoAmericas News 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Help by sharing this information January 21, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 No progress in investigation into Veracruz journalist’s abduction to go further April 28, 2021 Find out more May 13, 2021 Find out more Reports Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora state Nearly three weeks have elapsed without any light being shed on Moisés Sánchez Cerezo’s fate or the identity and motive of his abductors.Reporters Without Borders is particularly disturbed by the time taken by the Veracruz state authorities to launch a search for Sánchez. They were notified within 40 minutes of his abduction but waited four or five hours before beginning their search.“We are worried about the lack of cooperation between Veracruz officials (the Procuraduría del Estado) and federal officials (the Fiscalía Federal de Atención a Delitos contra la Libertad de Expresión),” said Claire San Filippo, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk.“We urge the different authorities to work together in a constructive manner and to do everything possible to find Sánchez safe and sound. This includes assigning more resources to exploring the possibilities that his abduction was linked to his journalistic work, that organized crime was involved, and that local officials may also have been complicit.”According to family members who were present at the time, four cars pulled up outside Sánchez’s home at around 7:30 p.m. on 2 January and six heavily-armed men in civilian dress got out. Three of them then entered the house, seized Sánchez and drove off with him.After the family reported his abduction, the Commission for Protection and Attention to Journalists took measures to protect the family. Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to reinforce these measures.The journalist’s son, Jorge Sánchez, told Reporters Without Borders: “We know it was because of his work because they did not take any money, just all of his (journalistic) material.” Sánchez’s online newspaper was called La Unión de Medellín.The local police and judicial authorities did not initially consider the possibility that his abduction was linked to his journalism because, they said, he earned his living as a taxi driver, not as a journalist, and “just posted on social networks.”The family told Reporters Without Borders that Sánchez ended up using Facebook as his main method of communication after his blog had been blocked three times. He covered organized crime, criticized Medellín de Bravo’s high crime rate and accused the local authorities, especially mayor Omar Cruz Reyes, of not paying enough attention to this issue.A few days before his abduction, a friend told him that the mayor was annoyed by his reporting and wanted to “scare” him.Given the subjects he covered, those investigating his abduction must also consider other possibilities, including the involvement of organized crime. Sánchez was also a local activist who had organized a protest by the neighbourhood self-defence committee in an attempt to get the mayor’s attention.One of Mexico’s most dangerous states for journalists, Veracruz has a high crime rate that is fuelled by various kinds of trafficking. Since 2010, four journalists have gone missing and ten have been killed. The victims include Gregorio Jiménez de la Cruz, whose body was found six days after his abduction in February 2014. The Jiménez case was another example of the lack of coordination between local and federal officials that only too often hampers police and judicial investigations.Several Veracruz journalists have reported being watched, harassed and threatened in connection with their crime coverage on social networks. The local authorities try to cover up the scale of violence.Mexico is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Xinjiang suffers information blockade four years after demonstrations

first_imgInternet under controlThe Chinese internet operates under permanent official supervision. But in Xinjiang the web faces additional technical obstacles, which Beijing uses in order to diminish dissemination of information.The download rate in Xinjiang is the country’s slowest. According to the techinasia.com site, the download rate is more than twice as slow in the province as in big coastal cities such as Shanghai and Beijing – less than 1.5 mbps, versus 4 mbps. Social networks such as Twitter and Facebook are censored, as in the rest of mainland China. The use of proxy servers to bypass censorship carries a higher risk than elsewhere in the country.The most heavily censored content in Xinjiang centres on human rights, minorities, religion and separatist demands. Unsurprisingly, the World Uyghur Congress site is permanently blocked in China.The government regularly resorts to jamming telecommunications. During the deadly violence that broke on 26 June, all communications lines in the Turpan prefecture were temporarily cut. “This is clear evidence of the levels of curtailment implemented by the Chinese authorities on the ability of Uyghurs to freely discuss and also know about the human rights situation facing their people,” said Dolkun Isa, secretary-general of the World Uyghur Congress. “But it also goes further by shielding the international community from knowing the full extent of what is happening on the ground, which is extremely concerning.” April 27, 2021 Find out more News Organisation News June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific Surveillance and repressionBeijing has assigned a great many of its “50 cents party” members (五毛), as its censors are nicknamed (a reference to their piece-rate per censored page) to Xinjiang duties. Studies showed that in 2008, at least 280,000 censors were assigned to monitor the region. No figure has been determined since then. But according to some experts, the total number of censors working in the national network reached about 500,000 in 2011. These numbers make clear the government’s emphasis on surveillance in the Uighur region. The censors concentrate their activities on spreading disinformation in web forums. They also censor pages deemed subversive.Cyber-attacks, censorship of social networks and arrests often intensify with the approach of dates with special sensitivity in Xinjiang. These include Ramadan, 4 June, and 5 July. Between 29 June and 11 July 2011, the World Uyghur Congress site was blocked, followed a DDoS attack. WordPress, the site’s host, said it had received 25,000 hostile communication requests.During recent violence, at least 19 web users were arrested on charges of disseminating false rumours.The case of Ilham Tohti, a blogger, uighurbiz.net site director and well-known university professor, illustrates the systematic repression aimed at Uighurs who use the internet to freely provide information and express themselves.Tohti was prevented on 2 February of this year from leaving the country, and repeatedly interrogated at the Beijing airport by police sent from Xinjiang. He suffers constant official harassment, especially since his coverage of the events of 2009. From 7 July to 22 August 2009, Tohti was detained in secret by local authorities.Often, people arrested are charged under Articles 73, 83 and 91 of the criminal code, which have expanded the definitions of “terrorism” and of endangering state secrets. According to the Dui Hua Foundation, 50 per-cent of the convictions under these provisions originate in Xinjiang, though the region holds only 2 per-cent of the national population.“The well known and well documented harassment and curtailment of the freedoms of a highly regarded individual such as professor Ilham Tohti is having significant negative and far-reaching consequences on the wider community,” Dolkun Isa said. “It shows to the less visible community that even being in the public eye, and therefore under public scrutiny, that one is not safe from reprisals by the Chinese authorities.”Isa added: “As all avenues of redress have been exhausted, the Uyghur people need more than ever that the international community does as much as it can to fight for improvement of their rights. This is ever more so in the current climate of recent developments.” ChinaAsia – Pacific News Follow the news on China Chinese authorities clamped a week-long communications blackout on the Uighur autonomous region as part of a military repression prompted by disturbances in 2009. On the eve of those events, Reporters Without Borders has concluded that authorities are maintaining their tight control of information in the most heavily monitored area of China.“No improvement has been seen since the disturbances of 2009,” the press freedom organization reported. “Xinjiang remains targeted by a program of censorship and monitoring directed from Beijing. Acts of violence still under way cannot be covered independently by the Chinese or the foreign media.”Free dissemination in print or online of news and information in the Uighur language is prohibited, the organization said. And numerous human rights violations go unreported, or surface only in disinformation campaigns orchestrated by the Communist Party of China’s Central Propaganda Department. Reporters Without Borders calls on Frank La Rue, the UN special rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression, to make a site visit in order to provide an account of the scale of the official information blockade and the total absence of genuinely independent and freely operating local media.“The international community must demand that Beijing allow foreign media access to Xinjiang,” the free press organization said, “in order to ensure that violence is not shielded from coverage, as occurred in 2009, when at least 200 people were killed.”New disturbances that broke out in late June of this year show that officials are relying on the same methods and techniques to isolate the region and to control information originating there, Reporters Without Borders said. “Since President Xi Jinping came to power, he has perpetuated a policy that has made Xinjiang virtually an information ‘black hole.’”OverviewBeijing has established an efficient system of prior censorship through publication committees and local propaganda committees in each town and city of the region. These agencies report to central authorities, who filter each item of information transmitted by the subordinate offices.Uighur-language newspapers are made up virtually entirely of direct translations of Chinese content that is reviewed in minute detail by the publication bureaus to ensure that no content unacceptable to Beijing sees the light of day. Only a handful of independent Uighur-language newspapers, produced in neighbouring countries and smuggled over the border, manage to circulate in the region. But censorship blocks any Uighur website unfavourable to the Communist Party. In a recent development, proxy servers are used to access to sites that “mirror” foreign-based sites, even though this tactic carries more risk than in the rest of the country.Only tiny number of news blogs exists, because ensuring online anonymity is impossible, given the numerous laws requiring identification of each internet user – laws that carry heavy penalties. The anonymous dissemination of articles written by Uighurs for a Uighur audience is a practical impossibility.As in the rest of mainland China, social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are prohibited. Broadcasts of some radio stations, such as Radio Free Asia, manage to reach Xinjiang. But listening to them is a very risky activity.Beijing has been successfully carrying out a disinformation program. Last October, a Uighur-language site, (http://uyghur.news.cn/) was created, with content supplied by Chinese authorities.As tension mounted with the approach of the 5 July anniversary, the city of Lukqun on 26 June suffered the deadliest disturbances since those of 2009.The official account said that 35 people were killed. But that figure has not been independently verified because police have barred access to the city. Reporters from Agence France-Presse (AFP) were turned back on 29 June after brief questioning. Disinformation is going largely unchallenged, with the official media– such as the China Daily – all describing Uighur oppositionists as “terrorists” who arrived from abroad.center_img to go further Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes March 12, 2021 Find out more China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures RSF_en News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison July 4, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Xinjiang suffers information blockade four years after demonstrations Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Sallas went to Jefferson and was inspired by Brunson when he was her principal.“Jarrett was my very first principal when I was five. He greeted each and every student by name every morning.

Sessions for the Altadena Parents Circle are from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m.Xochitl Palomera, Parent Support Circle Coordinator at The Village Family Services, says the project is an initiative to reduce isolation among parents and connect them to programs, free courses and events in Los Angeles county that will help support raising healthy children.“Sometimes parents will encounter different challenges when raising their children,” Palomera says. “Sometimes it’s behavior challenges, or they have children with special needs, or they’re just financial struggles. Sometimes it’s hard to admit that you need help, that you need some type of support. So we at Parents Support Circle create a space where parents can come, feel safe to share their experiences and in that process of sharing, they break through any taboos, their fears or expectations. And they become vulnerable. And with their vulnerability, they’re able to connect with other parents.”The Altadena Parents Circle is part of the Los Angeles County Parents Support Circles, funded by First 5 LA and supported by the Children’s Institute Inc., the county’s Department of Parks and Recreation and other community organizations.Every Wednesday, parents gather together and hear about each other’s experiences.“It’s a support talking circle, not therapy,” Palomera says. “So there’s no professional therapist. It’s not a class, so there’s no instructor. It’s actually a peer-to-peer model so the facilitators are parents themselves.”The organizers provide bus tokens for the parents and serve snacks and refreshments during the sessions. The also provide free childcare so parents can concentrate on their peer-support session and participate freely in the discussion.Parents who have not registered can walk in starting this Wednesday and take part in the other sessions, at the end of which they will be given certificates of participation.To learn more about the Altadena Parents Support Circle, call Xochitl Palomera at (323) 277-4759 or send an email to [email protected] Subscribe Top of the News Community News New Parent Support Circle in Altadena From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, March 28, 2016 | 12:02 pm Business Newslast_img read more
