In the spirit of fostering freedom of expression, Reporters Without Borders and Amnesty International are asking Google, Yahoo! and Mircosoft to not censor any of their search engines or blog platforms anywhere around the world. WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says News We are writing to you on behalf of Reporters Without Borders and Amnesty International regarding World Day Against Cyber Censorship, on March 12, 2009. As you know, Reporters Without Borders is an international press freedom organization that defends the right to inform and to be informed; Amnesty International is a Nobel prize winning international human rights organization with over 2.2 million members worldwide.World Day Against Cyber Censorship is a day to advance and celebrate a free Internet as an open window to the world and denounce the attacks made on the free flow of information online. In the spirit of fostering freedom of expression, we are asking that you do not censor any of your search engines or blog platforms anywhere around the world on this day.Your companies have grown on the concepts of open platforms for interaction, communication, idea development, and exchange. However, these concepts remain merely unfulfilled dreams for millions of people who live in countries where freedom of expression, creativity, and peaceful thought are not respected or protected.

Authoritarian regimes are becoming increasingly efficient at blocking any material they deem “objectionable.” Your assistance allows states, such as China, to out-right ban access to information on “human rights”, “dalai lama”, “Charter 08” or “democracy”, as well as to respected human rights websites, including those of Reporters Without Borders and Amnesty International.Especially after having participated, for months, within a multi-stakeholder initiative with your firms, our organizations understand the challenges of operating in countries that restrict Internet access; these countries are trying to pressure you to obey local laws that do not comport with international law and standards that protect freedom of expression. But complying with local demands that violate international law does not justify your actions. We urge you, on March 12th, to champion the vision of the Internet as a free space for everyone, regardless of nationality or geographic location, and fulfill the idea of a truly worldwide web– even if just for one day. This would send a strong message to all “netizens” – individuals, organizations and states alike – that censorship online is not the only way forward.

Chitkowski excels at corner infield spots for Syracuse after learning both in 2 seasons

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on February 17, 2015 at 12:12 am Danielle Chitkowski never played third base before she got to Syracuse.Last season, needing a third baseman, coaches stuck her there and she learned throughout the year how to man the hot corner.“She progressed so much at third last year and then at our end-of-the-year meetings, she was telling us how much she loved third,” assistant coach Matt Nandin said, “and we said, ‘OK, you might be switching to first next year.’”Like anything, Chitkowski took the news in stride and learned to play her new position. In Syracuse’s (4-6) 10 games, Chitkowski has played first base in five, third base in four and both in one. The junior uses her calming presence to anchor the infield from first and her willingness to adapt when she moves to third.Though she has found herself at the corner infield spots in every game this season, she rarely played either in high school.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“She was recruited as a shortstop who could pitch,” SU head coach Leigh Ross said. “It’s nothing that she did wrong, we didn’t really need her (to pitch) and this team needs her more as a positional player.”When her pitching career slowed in high school, Chitkowski started playing first base. The hardest part still was getting used to the bigger, heavier glove that first basemen use, she said.She also wasn’t used to stretching to pick balls, so Nandin and Chitkowski added extra stretches to her regimen to get more flexible.“Sometimes I’ll pick a ball and I’ll be like, ‘Oh, look what I found, didn’t know I could do that,’” Chitkowski said.During a game this past fall, an errant throw from infielder Corinne Ozanne drew Chitkowski off the bag to her left. She stretched out to grab the ball, reached back and tagged out the runner.“Whoa, I had the ball through all of that?” Chitkowski said. The position is becoming more instinctual for the utility player.SU moves Chitkowski’s position between games of a doubleheader, too. Going from first to third is hardest, she said, because she has to remember she doesn’t have a big glove on anymore and ground balls aren’t as easy to field.The team only does fielding drills before the first game of a doubleheader, so Chitkowski and Ozanne go to the side of the field between games so Chitkowski can practice her new position and glove.Matt Nandin and student coach Morgan Nandin put ankle weights on Chitkowski and hit her balls at third to quicken her first step. Matt Nandin also taught her how to play the angles at first and third and told her she could step back to give herself extra time before the ball got to her.“She’s a big, long body and for a first baseman, that’s ideal,” Matt Nandin said. “And as far as third goes, I thought she’d be perfect over there, she’s got a strong arm.”Just a couple weeks ago, Chitkowski said, Morgan Nandin told her how much better her footwork looked.When Chitkowski’s at first, her teammates say they know she will be there to make the catch even on a bad throw. And when she’s at third, Ozanne is usually at shortstop, and Chitkowski cracks jokes to lighten the mood with an intense teammate.“A ball’s hit to her and she makes a good play — kind of thing that just gives you a good trust in who she is and the way that she plays,” Ozanne said. “Her presence on the field is what is relaxing to the rest of the team.” Commentslast_img read more

Leonard is said to be ready to sever ties with the Spurs, with Los Angeles as his preferred destination and the Lakers as his top team.The Lakers’ interest is believed to be mutual.The Clippers also could have interest in Leonard. VIDEO: Watch Kyle Kuzma’s game winner and what he said about it The San Antonio Express-News and ESPN.com were the first to report the 26-year-old Leonard’s desire to leave the Spurs, with each citing unnamed sources. Leonard’s relationship with the Spurs soured last season over the treatment of a quadriceps injury that limited him to nine games.Leonard has asked San Antonio to trade him, the Express-News reported. Leonard graduated from King High School in Riverside and had two standout seasons at San Diego State before the Spurs drafted him 15th overall in the 2011 draft.It’s unclear who the Lakers would send the Spurs in order to acquire Leonard, who is eligible for a five-year, $219-million contract extension from San Antonio. The Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers also could be in the mix in a trade for Leonard, who has averaged 16.3 points and 6.2 rebounds during his NBA career.The Lakers have a number of talented young players who could be attractive in a trade for Leonard, including Lonzo Ball, Josh Hart, Brandon Ingram, Kyle Kuzma and Julius Randle. The deal might make more sense for the rebuilding Lakers than for the Spurs, however.San Antonio has been a fierce rival of the Lakers during Coach Gregg Popovich’s tenure with the Spurs. Popovich and Phil Jackson disliked each other after so many tense playoff battles, and it’s not clear the bitterness between the franchises has subsided since Jackson’s retirement from coaching in 2011.

Plus, there are questions about the Spurs’ willingness to help create a Lakers superteam that could challenge the Golden State Warriors for NBA supremacy. After all, the Lakers are among the leading suitors for LeBron James and perhaps Paul George, another Southern Californian who would like to return.Additionally, it’s possible Leonard and the Spurs could settle their differences before the NBA draft Thursday and he could sign an extension in the coming weeks. Leonard and Popovich were scheduled to talk in the next few days, according to the Express-News report.The Spurs are the only team that can offer Leonard the five-year, $219-million deal.Meanwhile in Playa Vista, a few miles north of the Lakers’ training facility in El Segundo, the Clippers have two first-round draft picks, Nos. 12 and 13, and several intriguing players on their roster, which could be attractive should the Spurs grant Leonard’s trade demand.The Clippers are poised to begin their own rebuilding effort after missing the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons. They granted Chris Paul’s wish to be traded to the Houston Rockets last spring and dealt Blake Griffin to the Detroit Pistons in the summer, clearing the way for a remodel.Doc Rivers agreed to a contract extension last month and it’s believed he returned to coach the team because management is determined to return the franchise to playoff form without tearing apart the roster and starting from scratch. Acquiring Leonard would play a big part in that regard.For what it was worth, and that’s probably not a whole lot, one oddsmaker on Friday put the chances of Leonard joining the Lakers next season at 5/7. The Boston Celtics were next at 15/4, followed by the Spurs and 76ers at 5/1 and the Clippers and Cleveland Cavaliers at 10/1.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.
