One year after Natalia Estemirova’s murder, impunity set to win out again

first_img In the year since former journalist Natalia Estemirova’s abduction and murder on 15 July 2009 in the Russian Caucasus, little progress has been made in the investigation. The impunity that prevails in cases of violence against journalists and human rights activists in Russia seems to have triumphed again. Reporters Without Borders joins Memorial, the Moscow-based human rights NGO for which Estemirova worked in the Chechen capital of Grozny, in calling on those in charge of the investigation to examine certain hypotheses more closely, especially those linked to her human rights work.No suspect has yet been identified and key questions remain unanswered. Estemirova’s colleagues fear that the authorities will blame her murder on a deceased “boyevik” (Chechen rebel), thereby dashing any hope of solving the case.Alexander Cherkasov of Memorial is concerned that the investigators are only considering the hypothesis that the murder was carried out by boyeviki with the aim of implicating Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov.Various Russian media including The New Times and Kavkazski Uzel recently reported that the police could blame her murder on Alkhazur Bashayev, a recruiter for Chechen rebels who was gunned down in November 2009. The reports have yet to receive official confirmation.If this were happen, the case would be considered solved, Cherkasov said. Bashayev could not be tried (because he is dead) and the possibility that the authorities were involved would (officially, at least) be eliminated.According to a report by human rights defender Svetlana Gannushkina, the strongest evidence pointing to Bashayev’s involvement was the discovery in an arms cache of the gun used to kill Estemirova together with a forged interior ministry ID card with Bashayev’s photo.Other hypotheses are no longer being examined. They include the possibility that Estemirova’s murder was carried out by members of the interior ministry (ROVD) in the Chechen district of Kurchaloy in reprisal for being accused by her of Rizvan Albekov’s extrajudicial execution on 7 July 2009. She had expressed concern about this possibility just a few days before her abduction.President Kadyrov has meanwhile launched a new offensive against Memorial, whose director, Oleg Orlov, was already ordered to pay him 20,000 roubles (450 euros) in damages in October 2009 as a result of a defamation suit. Memorial voiced concern on 8 July that Kadyrov, speaking on Chechen television five days earlier, had described its employees as “enemies of the people, enemies of the law and enemies of the state.” He had referred to Estemirova in similar terms shortly before her murder.Estemirova displayed extraordinary courage in speaking out about human rights violations in Chechnya, where she had previously covered the armed conflicts as a journalist. She won many awards and was nominated for the European Parliament’s Sakharov Prize in 2004. She was kidnapped on 15 July 2009 in Grozny and was found dead a few hours later in the neighbouring republic of Ingushetia.

Campus Dining, students discuss changes to food options on campus

first_imgGarbanzo Mediterranean Fresh opensChris Abayasinghe, senior director of Campus Dining, said the decision to bring Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh to the Hesburgh Center for International Studies was part of the University’s ongoing evaluation of its restaurants.“With the new Jenkins-Nanovic building there, we wanted to create a dining experience that was also reflective of the global aspirations that the new Keough School, etc., aspire to, because they have visiting scholars, folks like that [who] come in,” he said.Abayasinghe said while Au Bon Pain Express used to be located in the Hesburgh Center in place of Garbanzo, it was more of “a catering operation.”“One of the charges we set for ourselves was to really help enliven the dine-in experience. And that’s what we’ve seen with Garbanzo,” he said.Abayasinghe said Campus Dining does not yet know the full financial cost of replacing ABP Express with Garbanzo. When asked if he had an estimate, Abaysinghe responded that the University would know the full amount by the end of the fiscal year.The restaurant has gotten business from a number of students, Luigi Alberganti, director of student dining said. As Campus Dining anticipated, Garbanzo’s customers primarily consist of faculty and visitors, but the students were a nice surprise, he said.Julia Glago, a sophomore, was one such student who visited Garbanzo on Friday. She said many of her friends had recommended the restaurant but warned her about long lines.“I really liked it,” she said. “It’s a lot different than what a lot of other on-campus food restaurants have to offer.”Senior Caizi Qi, who also went to Garbanzo on Friday with her friend Yi Fan, said she appreciated the options the restaurant offers.“This is a more healthy option instead of the fast food,” she said. In addition to the opening of Pizza Pi, Campus Dining rolled out several changes this semester, including the opening of Garbanzo Mediterranean Fresh and the closure of express location, a la Descartes, in Jordan Hall. The organization is also continuing to evaluate its dining options and plans to announce changes to the meal plans during the fall semester.“We’re always looking at new work, especially with technology now — it’s changing a lot faster,” director of student dining Luigi Alberganti said. “So we’re always looking, we actually go to conferences and whatnot, and see what the newest trend is.” Future changesThis fall, Campus Dining plans to announce updates to the meal plan system. Abayasinghe declined to comment on how the meal plans would be adjusted, saying he was not ready to discuss the changes yet. “Last semester, students received an update from Student Affairs specifically in and around that but also announcing that we were going to go through the process in the fall to speak with students and what have you,” he said. “Yes, we do intend to do that.”When announcing incentives to keep seniors on-campus, the University said last spring it intends to introduce “block meal plan options.” These plans would offer a certain number of swipes per semester instead of swipes that expire weekly. The email also referenced “even more flexible meal plan options” for seniors.Last fall, then student government co-director of student life Eduardo Luna said Campus Dining had been considering changes including a meal-block plan, a flex points based system, decreasing meal swipes, offering unlimited meal swipes and getting rid of late lunch.When asked about possible modifications to the LaFortune Student Center, Campus Dining administrators said they had not confirmed any changes yet.“We’ve looked at many concepts and we engaged with several student groups, professors and whatnot, to see what possibilities we have there,” Alberganti said. “But we haven’t monetized anything.”Tags: a la descartes, Campus DIning, garbanzo, garbanzo mediterranean fresh, Jordan Hall, LaFortune Student Center, LaFun, meal planscenter_img À la Descartes closesAlongside the opening of Garbanzo, campus also saw the closing of a la Descartes, an express location offering to-go food and coffee in Jordan Hall. The location was difficult to maintain because it did not have special facilities, such as a hand-washing station, and items had to be brought in, Alberganti said. When the Duncan Student Center opened, its new restaurants also took away business from a la Descartes, he added.“We thought it was going to be a minimal impact,” Alberganti said. “But after a year of seeing the volume that we had over there, it just became financially unsustainable to maintain.” Alberganti said having the Duncan Student Center near Jordan Hall offers students more options.“The decision of closing a la Descartes was based on we’d rather give the opportunity of expansion and an experience like Duncan Student Center, where you not only can have coffee but it’s complemented by the homemade gelato program, pastries and smoothies and whatnot,” he said.Director of Campus Dining Chris Abayasinghe added that locations such as Au Bon Pain in the library, Decio Cafe and the Duncan Student Center could offer alternatives to a la Descartes. He also said the University is continuing to evaluate its dining options and is piloting a personalized coffee machine in the School of Architecture’s building.However, not all students found these alternatives helpful.Senior and biology major Colleen Ballantyne said she frequented a la Descartes for coffee and enjoyed talking to friends who worked there. When she noticed the express location had closed, she emailed Campus Dining to see if the closure was permanent.“The closest place would be ABP, but that’s a 10-minute round trip plus the actual buying the coffee,” she said. “It’s not really feasible. I’ve just gotten so used to being right there.”Senior and science-business major Evan Slattery, who was working in the study area near the now-closed cafe Tuesday, said a la Descartes was a convenient place to pick up a coffee or snack between classes.“I actually liked this [location] more than Duncan because it’s just a little store that you can grab whatever you want,” he said. “Over there, it’s just a few restaurants. It’s always long lines. This is way more convenient. If I wanted a coffee, I would never go to Duncan. I would go right here.”Not all students had strong feelings about the closure, however. “I used to come here often but … I’m not really mad about it,” sophomore and biochemistry major Vita Zhang said.last_img read more

Green groups push to stop bailout of South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries

first_imgGreen groups push to stop bailout of South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Mongabay:Environmental groups are seeking an injunction against a move by South Korea to bail out a builder of coal-fired power plants, saying the rescue package goes against the country’s climate and public health commitments.Korea Development Bank (KDB) and the Export-Import Bank of Korea (KEXIM) on March 26 issued a 1 trillion won ($825 million) emergency loan to Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co. The bailout is listed as part of the South Korean government’s stimulus package for businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.But the decision has come under fire from environmental watchdogs, given that most of Doosan’s revenue comes from building coal-fired power plants.“These decisions to support Doosan Heavy come with significant environmental and health consequences,” the environmental groups from South Korea, Indonesia and other countries wrote in a joint letter submitted April 8 to the South Korean Ministry of Economy and Finance.They said Doosan’s financial woes were not directly caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. They noted that, between 2010 and 2019, Doosan’s credit rating dropped from A+ to BBB and its share price declined by 93% — “well before COVID-19 was an apparent crisis,” they wrote.Eighty percent of Doosan’s revenue comes from coal power plants at home and abroad, including two projects on Indonesia’s Java Island, the groups said. South Korean-financed overseas coal power projects employ the country’s advanced technology, but are still several times more polluting than those in South Korea, as they take advantage of laxer environmental regulations in South and Southeast Asian countries to trim construction and operating costs, the groups said.[Basten Gokkon]More: Green groups target South Korea’s bailout of coal power plant builderlast_img read more

GPL Preview: Tom Strand and Yatsuhashi set for tactical battle as Medeama clash with Hearts

first_imgAfter clinching all maximum point at the expense of New Edubiase on matchday one, Accra Hearts of Oak have another hurdle as they come up against Medeama Sc in the topliner of Match day two of the in the Ghana Premier league.The game will see two expatriates battle for supremacy on a land foreign to them. It is set to be a tactical chess between with Swede Tom Strand and Japanese American Kenichi Yatsuhashi.Hearts of Oaks’ Japanese Coach Kenichi Yatsuhashi is still on a mission to win love and affection of the Phobian faithfuls, having been criticized for lacking the fitting credentials to lead the side.He would certainly cement his place as a club hero should he mastermind a first league win for the Phobians at the T&A Park.However, he faces a daunting task following the injuries of new kid on the block Samudeen Ibrahim and goalkeeper Soulama Abdoulaye – who both failed to recover from their knocks in their opening day victory over New Edubiase.However, there’ll still be the likes of Samuel Yeboah and captain Robin Gnagne to rely on, and the latter in particular will be handed the task of keeping danger man Bernard Ofori at bay. The former Edubiase striker has scored in his two competitive outings for the Yellow and Mauves and will be hoping for a third.The match however will be won in the middle of the pitch where Sarbah Laryea and Mustapha Essuman come up against Kwasi Donsu and Malik Akowuah.Medeama come into the game on the back of their opening day defeat to Ashanti Gold.Strand’s side are yet to succumb to the Accra-based side at Tarkwa since the team metamorphosed from Kessben FC to Medeama SC in 2011.The Tarkwa side boasts of two wins with three others ending in draws out of five home matches against the 20 time league champions Join Sunday Live on the Sports Arena as we see which of these two coaches wins the tactical battle at the T&A park..Eric Asante will be Joy Sports correspondent from Tarkwa.–last_img read more

Inside Conditions…Expense accountables

first_imgHey folks, do you see and hear all of the hype, hoopla, and hypocrisy about the event otherwise known as “March Madness?” As far as I am concerned, “March Madness” is a kind and benevolent name for money “hungriness,” greed and corruption. But there are also a few additional issues that seem to get stuck in my “craw.” What is the average cost of clothing, feeding and educating a child from birth until age twenty-one? According to a family management study last conducted by Virginia Tech in 2007, “the average cost of raising a child from birth to age 18 increased from $170,460 in 2001 to $204,060 in 2007. Who compensates the parents for all of the blood, sweat, tears and dough that they put into, Johnny, Joseph or Josephine before they step onto the stage of college athletics? Boys and girls, trust me. It does not cost 200 grand or more to provide a pillow, mattress, a meal plan and books for a performing athlete for four years of study at an accredited NCAA institution.According to cbslocal.com, the NCAA tournament’s new 14-year TV deal is worth $10.8 billion.Even the usually stoic and semi-conservative Michael Wilbon had this to say in a July 28, 2011 column, “I used to argue vehemently against paying college athletes. Tuition, room, board and books were compensation enough. And even if, increasingly, it wasn’t enough and virtually every kid who accepted a scholarship was in the red before Christmas of his freshman year, the notion of pay-for-play was at best a logistical nightmare. Where exactly would the money come from? How could you pay college football players but not baseball players or members of the women’s field hockey team? And how in the world would you pay men in a way that wouldn’t violate Title IX? So you know what caused me to do a 180 on the issue? That $11 billion deal — OK, it’s $10.8 billion to be exact — between the NCAA and CBS/Turner Sports for March Madness between 2011 and 2024. We’re talking $11 billion for three weekends of television per year. What if people in the business of money took $1.3 billion off the top, invested it, sheltered it and made it available to provide a stipend to college athletes, how could anybody stand on principal and argue against paying the people who make the events possible in the first place?”Let me declare up front I wouldn’t be the slightest bit interested in distributing the funds equitably or even paying every college athlete. I’m interested in seeing the people who produce the revenue share a teeny, tiny slice of it. That’s right, football and men’s basketball players get paid; lacrosse, field hockey, softball, baseball, soccer players get nothing. You know what that’s called? Capitalism. For more than five years, I have been writing, screaming, whooping and hollering, protesting and jumping up and down on my now destroyed soapbox lobbying for a pay-for-play system in major college sports.There are many devious and dark administrators from the NCAA and their member schools drawing perverted salaries and gleaning all types of economic advantages from collegiate sports. Parents must form a national coalition and protest movement to protect their children. Just like the labor unions of the early 20th century, the guardians of our children must all simultaneously demand equal pay for equal play.When I look at the NCAA definition of the word “amateur” I initially cringe and then I immediately become livid. As far as the NCAA is concerned a student/athlete violates their amateur status if they are paid (in any form) or accept the promise of pay for playing in an athletics contest; sign a contract or verbally commit with an agent; ask that your name be placed on a draft list (Note: in basketball, once you become a student-athlete at an NCAA school, you may enter a professional league’s draft one time without jeopardizing your eligibility provided you are not drafted by any team in that league and you declare your intention in writing to return to college within 30 days after the draft); use your athletics skill for pay in any form (for example, TV commercials); play on a professional athletics team; or participate on an amateur sports team and receive any salary, incentive payment, award, gratuity, educational expenses or expense allowance (other than playing apparel, equipment and actual and necessary travel, and room and board expenses). The NCAA is an organization of professional con-artists whose sole purpose is to control the economic structure of all of college athletics and now that power must be wrestled from them as Malcolm X would say, “by any means necessary.” My late brother Jonathan “Jody” Bruce who was an excellent billiards player had a rebuttal for those who ran off at the mouth about their pool game. He would say, “quit talkin and start chalkin.”(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected]­pittsburghcourier.com or 412-583-6741.)last_img read more

BP opens cutting-edge fuel lab in SA

first_imgBP’s brand new South African fuel lab will help ensure that local consumers continue to benefit from the latest technology.(Image: BP) Global fuel giant BP launched a cutting-edge fuels laboratory in Johannesburg towards the end of 2010. The facility is one of only four around the world belonging to BP, and is expected to help the company bring a more diverse range of fuels to the local market. Although the company’s image was internationally tarnished in 2010 with the 87-day Deepwater Horizon oil spill into the Gulf of Mexico, in South Africa the brand is still the most popular among consumers, as shown in the Sunday Times’s annual survey of top brands.BP has topped its category on the poll for the past decade, and is also the only fuel brand recommended by the Automobile Association of South Africa. The company employs about 2 000 people across the country, many of them in its network of some 600 service stations.The Fuels Technology Centre in Kyalami, north of Johannesburg, is further evidence of BP’s commitment to long-term investment into South Africa.The company views South Africa as a key growth market and to date has invested millions into infrastructure, refining and fuel delivery capacity.In 2010 alone, BP’s investment totalled over R500-million (US$72-million). The new facility was built at a cost of around R40-million ($5.8-million), and houses a fuel-quality testing laboratory and customer engagement and staff training resources.BP’s best for consumersBP Africa’s CEO Sipho Maseko said at the launch that the company intends to make its best available fuel technology and highest possible fuel quality available to South African consumers – a goal that will be realised with the opening of the hi-tech centre.“It will also help bring capable fuel scientists and technologists to work in this highly specialised field,” said Maseko, “and provides unique opportunities for industry to work closer with academic institutions and motoring bodies, such as the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa”.More than just a centre that employs “very smart people”, said Maseko, the laboratory is also open to schools and universities.The company hopes that its position as South Africa’s most popular brand of fuel will be further entrenched by the facility’s establishment, as it will be able to maintain its quality standards and develop new fuels specifically for the local market. It will also be able to play a strong role in helping to drive the government’s cleaner fuels agenda.Continued confidence in South AfricaSouth Africa’s Minister of Energy Dipuo Peters was also present at the launch and expressed her appreciation of BP’s continued confidence in South Africa, as well as the company’s commitment to educating and training its employees through the new state-of-the-art facility.“I hope that BP will use this as a springboard for other investments and technologies in this part of the world,” she said.According to Tufan Erginbilgic, BP’s UK-based COO for refining and marketing, such a facility would be regarded as a major investment in any country.“The South African centre will operate under a similar model as those in Germany and the US,” he said, “focusing on quality assurance, technical service and marketing support for the local market”.Erginbilgic added that the quality of BP’s scientific and technological knowledge, as well as access to expertise around the world, will enable the company to keep developing hi-tech fuels for the region.“This is one of our best-performing markets and we predict continued growth,” he said. “Next year we will spend about R624-million ($90-million), mostly in South Africa.”last_img read more

Hemlock pest discovered in Scioto County

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) and the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) today announced the discovery of a hemlock-killing pest in Scioto County in southern Ohio. The Hemlock Woolly Adelgid (HWA) is a small, aphid-like insect native to Asia that threatens the health and sustainability of eastern hemlock and Carolina hemlock in the eastern United States.HWA was first reported in the eastern United States in 1951 in Virginia. Today, it is established in portions of 20 states from Maine to Georgia, where infestations cover about half of the range of eastern hemlock. Areas of the southern Appalachian region and New England have experienced significant mortality of eastern hemlock due to this devastating insect.The infestation was detected by ODNR officials at Shawnee State Forest and Shawnee State Park in Scioto County. Officials have been conducting surveys in and around the infested area to determine the extent of the infestation. HWA is primarily transported by wind and birds. Officials believe the recent findings in Ohio are the result of natural spread from nearby areas where the pest is established. HWA was originally detected in Ohio in Meigs County in 2012.At this time, ODA will move to expand its hemlock quarantine, enforced by ODA’s Plant Health division, to include Scioto County. Ohio quarantine regulations restrict the movement of hemlock materials from counties known to be infested into non-infested Ohio counties. Ohio’s quarantine law also requires hemlock materials grown in non-infested counties in quarantined states to be inspected before being shipped and have a phytosanitary certificate verifying that the plant material is free of HWA when entering Ohio.For more information about the HWA in Ohio, visit agri.ohio.gov/divs/plant/hwa/hwa.aspx.last_img read more

Small Decisions, Repeatedly Taken

first_imgNo one decides to become a liar. It isn’t their goal. Instead, they tell a small lie, followed by another little lie. Eventually, as they become accustomed to avoiding the truth, their lies grow. They tell bigger and more damaging lies, until some point this behavior defines them.There isn’t any person who decides it is their life’s goal to be a drug addict or an alcoholic. To mask some pain, especially the pain of not feeling a sense of belonging, they start abusing some substance. Later, things shift, and instead of them taking some substance, the substance takes them.People don’t make a conscious decision to be lazy. Mostly, they seek comfort or escape. Over time, as comfort wins out over effort, and the comfort-seeker is marked by their laziness, their sloth, and their endless procrastination.Stepping Foot on the PathOnce you step foot on the path, you have chosen a direction. The further you traverse down that path, the more the road is taking you away from what you might have been. Even when you are not conscious of how you are changing (and being changed), and even if no one yet notices, you are becoming something different from what you once were.It’s the seemingly small decisions, repeatedly taken that propel you in a particular direction as much or more than the colossal choices that require more conscious thought. The first small decision is what sets you on a path, but it’s the continuation over time that changes your identity.Turn AroundThis same pattern of small decisions, repeatedly taken, can take you down another path, a better path to becoming something other than what has taken you. The first decision you have to make is to turn around and take the first step.If, in the past, you would have undertaken some action, turning around means taking the opposite action. Being conscious of the new decision and repeatedly taking it moves you out of the wilderness and back towards a better place.For some, the path out is longer and more difficult. For others, once they make a decision, the transformation is almost immediate and irrevocable. Either way, the new path begins with turning around. Essential Reading!

Humble Pie

first_img Originally published Feb 4, 2008 10:12:00 AM, updated October 01 2019 What did I learn this weekend?  First, I learned that even Tom Brady can’t throw a football accurately with linebackers in his face.  Second, Tom Petty might be a bit old to be trying to rock out during halftime.  And finally, yes, I learned that inbound links, website grade, web traffic and other Internet marketing metrics do not affect what happens on a football field. To be honest, I think my prediction last week was clear that it was somewhat in jest.  But still, I make a full apology to our blog readers for going perhaps a bit too far last week when I predicted a Patriots victory using Internet marketing data.  I will now eat my Humble Pie just like the Patriots should be doing.But, that does not mean that all of you reading this article are off the hook!  Why?  Because all these metrics do matter!  Internet marketing metrics matter for your business. While predicting the result of a football game might not make sense, I do think you can predict the future of your business using things like traffic, inbound links and website grade.  More people visiting your website indicates more interest in your business. A higher Website Grade comes from you doing all the right things online, which helps more people find your website.So, I will eat my humble pie. But, your assignment is to get a free marketing report at Website Grader and add to your goals for 2008 to improve your Website Grade, double your website traffic and double your website lead flow.
