At least 12 journalists attacked by police in space of two days

first_img TurkeyEurope – Central Asia News Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders condemns the resumption of police violence against journalists that has accompanied a new wave of demonstrations in Turkey’s biggest cities in the past few days. At least 12 journalists were injured or attacked by police in the space of two days in Istanbul, Izmir and the capital, Ankara. April 28, 2021 Find out more Read RWB’s statements on the “Occupy Gezi” protestsLead photo: Kemal Aslan / Camera Work Additional photos: AFP photo / Bülent Kiliç, AFP photo / Ozan Kose Human rights groups warns European leaders before Turkey summit News to go further Receive email alerts TurkeyEurope – Central Asia Newscenter_img News Journalists threatened with imprisonment under Turkey’s terrorism law “It is unfortunately clear that the police did not learn any lessons from their appalling handling of the ‘Occupy Gezi’ protests,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Three months later, the police are still resorting to the same disproportionate violence and news providers are still being deliberately targeted although they are just trying to cover what is happening.“This unacceptable violence has been encouraged by the complete impunity enjoyed by those responsible for the abuses from May to July. We again call for full and impartial investigations in order to identify and punish the perpetrators of this violence.”Ali Açar (photo above), a reporter for the daily Cumhuriyet, and Kaan Sagnak, one of its photographers, were among the victims of police violence last night in Istanbul. Cumhuriyet said Sagnak was injured in the arm by a “rubber bullet fired from a distance of two metres.”Freelance photographer Ufuk Kosar was injured in the left arm (adjoining photo). DHA news agency reporter Ugur Can, Anatolia news agency reporter Bülent Doruk and Agence France-Presse photographer Ozan Kose were also the victims of police violence near Istanbul’s Taksim Square.Independent journalist and photographer Ahmet Sik told Reporters Without Borders that a rubber bullet hit him in the chest as he was trying to cover an arrest on Istiklal Avenue, near Taksim Square. The police drove him and other reporters and cameramen back to prevent them covering what was happening. One policeman aimed his rubber-bullet rifle at Sik while ordering him not to approach (lead photo).Serdar Akinan, the owner of the Vagus.TV website, reported on Twitter that a policeman with no identification number on his helmet head-butted one of his reporters, Rabia Celik, as she was taking photos last night.Metehan Ud, a reporter for the left-wing daily Günlük Evrensel, received a beating from policemen in the western city of Izmir. The Association of Turkish Journalists (TGC) has condemned the new wave of violence, recalling that nearly 100 journalists were attacked or detained during the “Occupy Gezi” protests.On 9 September, two Günlük Evrensel reporters based in Ankara, Hasan Akbas and Birkan Bulut, were beaten by police when they tried to cover a demonstration in Tuzluçayir, a neighbourhood that is part of the district of Mamak. Akbas said the police attacked them after seeing their press cards and after making sure there were no witnesses.Berna Sahin, a reporter for the left-wing daily Birgün, lost consciousness for several minutes after a stun grenade exploded near her in the Istanbul neighbourhood of Okmeydani on 9 September. Sahin said it was clear that she was “deliberately” targeted because she was on a street controlled by the police and was clearly identifiable as a journalist, and because no demonstrator was anywhere near her at the time.Riza Özel, a journalist with the daily Hürriyet, was injured in the leg by a rubber bullet while trying to take cover as police dispersed a demonstration on the Middle East Technical University campus in Ankara on 6 September. He was also hit on the head by a stone thrown by a demonstrator and was hospitalized after losing consciousness.

Minton opens ‘Mommy’s School of Quarantine Academy’

first_imgHeather Power Minton is tackling the challenge of home-schooling her three-year-old son, Connors, with’ Mommy’s School of Quarantine Academy.’ Minton said a strict schedule, lots of hands-on activities and creative crafts like edible paint and baking cookies to leave for friends help keep the days fun and educational for everyone. By The Penny Hoarder Latest Stories Next UpSo being the mother and teacher that she is, Minton planned the structure her son needed, beginning with turning off the TV. A little TV is good but only a little and too much is not good by any account. So Minton turned off the TV and on the structure. “Each morning, we have breakfast; then we have prayer and read a Bible story,” Minton said. “Then, we have lessons — letters, colors shapes, This week, our letters were K and L  and we talked about kindness and love and what they mean and how they are shown.”To put those two words into action, Minton baked cookies and Conners decorated them with sprinkles and they took the treats to his nursery school friends.

It’s silly but children like silly things and it improves their large motor skills. To improve his small motor skills, he likes to move puff balls with a clothes pin. We have a lot of different buttons that are fun for moving  and for learning shapes and colors. And, we play Candyland  and other games that teach colors and counting.”Minton sometimes takes a walk on the wild side with Conners and his young brother who is not even one yet. She lets them paint.

He needed planned activities. I knew he would soon be bored with TV and, without something constructive to fill his day, he would be a nightmare for the teacher when he did go back to school.”center_img Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “It’s edible paint,” Minton said, laughing. “It has to be because Payson puts the paint in his mouth.”The school mother/teacher mixes food coloring with good-tasting things like vanilla pudding and smears it on edibles like apples.

Structure gets me through the days feeling that we have done something constructive,” she said. “And, we have a good time at the Quarantine Academy — Conners and me.”And, if Minton has any doubts, they are quickly removed when her three-year-old son asks on Saturday, “Mommy, did you forget school today?’ You Might Like The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Print Article Minton opens ‘Mommy’s School of Quarantine Academy’ Local teams adjusting to no spring practice Charles Henderson head football coach Brad McCoy spent part of last Thursday cutting the grass of the Trojan practice field… read more Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By Jaine Treadwelllast_img read more

Grandfather charged in 1-year-old granddaughter’s cruise ship death faces prosecutors in court

first_imgDNY59/iStock(SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico) — The grandfather charged with negligent homicide after his 1-year-old granddaughter fatally fell from a cruise ship was quiet and stoic as he appeared in a Puerto Rican courtroom Wednesday.During Salvatore Anello’s preliminary hearing, the prosecution said they have witnesses, both on and off the island, they would call to testify.Chloe Wiegand, an 18-month-old from Indiana, was traveling with her grandparents and parents on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas when she fell to her death in July as the ship was docked in San Juan.Chloe was with her grandfather in the children’s water park play area when her grandfather put her on a wood railing in front of a wall of glass windows, according to attorney Michael Winkleman.Winkleman said the grandfather put Chloe on the railing thinking she’d bang on the glass. However, the window was open and she was “gone,” Winkleman said in July, calling her death a “tragic accident that was preventable.”Prosecutor Laura Hernandez told ABC News that prosecutors are confident in the case and would not have pursued a negligent homicide charge if it was not supported by the evidence.Prosecutors on Wednesday told Judge Gisela Alfonso Fernandez they had discovery evidence to present to the defense. The judge agreed to postpone further proceedings until the discovery evidence was in the hands of the defense.Prosecutors deny that Royal Caribbean had any influence in their decision to charge Anello.Anello’s defense attorney, Jose Ortiz, declined to make a statement after court. Anello is next due in court on Dec. 16.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

U.S. Commerce Secretary Ross Accepts New Jersey Proposal after Congressional Delegation Continued AdvocacyWASHINGTON, D.C. – After months of fighting against proposed reductions on summer flounder harvest limits for New Jersey commercial and recreational fishermen, U.S. Representative Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today applauded U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross’ decision late last night to accept New Jersey’s management plan.“Commerce Secretary Ross’ decision to adopt New Jersey’s conservation equivalency plan for summer flounder signals a win-win for our fishing industry and conservation efforts,” said LoBiondo. “For months I have argued that NOAA and ASMFC were flawed in their data and decision-making process, creating a significant and arbitrary disadvantage to New Jersey fishermen. Going forward we must reform the use of questionable methodologies and outdated science by federal bureaucrats that, left unchecked, will again threaten fishing operations in South Jersey. I will continue to work with my colleagues and Commerce Secretary Ross to protect the critical fishing industry in South Jersey as well as the summer flounder stocks.”Earlier this month LoBiondo joined with fellow New Jersey Representative Chris Smith (NJ-04) and other members of the Congressional delegation to urge delaying 2017-2018 restrictions on New Jersey fishermen proposed by the Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission (ASMFC).The letter requested Commerce Secretary Ross consider the management plan proposed by the state of New Jersey, and urged him to, “work administratively with the State of New Jersey to approve, implement and enforce New Jersey’s 2017 Summer Flounder regulations.” The full letter is available here.In March LoBiondo introduced bipartisan legislation to prevent the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) 2017 and 2018 summer flounder quotas for recreational and commercial fishing from going into effect. H.R. 1411, the “Transparent Summer Flounder Quotas Act” would require a new stock assessment prior to implementation of 2017-2018 Summer Flounder and Black Sea Bass Commercial Accountability Measures.In addition to meeting with Commerce Secretary Ross on the summer flounder issue and submitting testimony for the official record at public hearings, LoBiondo joined by New Jersey lawmakers has urged NOAA and ASMFC to modify the restrictions going back to the Obama Administration:January 5, 2017 – Letter to Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker (Obama Administration) regarding the reduction of quotas recreational/commercial harvest limits for summer flounder. February 28, 2017 – Letter to Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross (Trump Administration) expressing concern with ASMFC vote to approve restrictions.center_img Photo Credit : John DeBonalast_img read more

Vera Bradley co-founder visits SMC

first_img “I just didn’t think outside the box,” she said, thinking back to her first aspiration to be a business teacher.  As a successful businesswoman today, the sky is the limit for Miller and her industry. Primarily, Miller said to “listen to your instincts” the way she and Baekgaard had that cold February day at the airport, and to “be engaging, interested and passionate” in business, and with any dream or ambition in life for that matter.  According to Miller, the VBFBC hopes to bring the results of groundbreaking scientific research directly to the bedside, helping develop new treatments for cancer patients, and to discover quicker, more effective ways of spotting breast cancer on a molecular level.  “Change is constant, and you should embrace it,” Miller said. “If you don’t keep pace with change, you will be left in the dust.”  According to Miller, new this season there will be trendy laptop backpacks available  The Vera Bradley line has also expanded to include lunch boxes, totes, cosmetics bags, jewelry boxes and stationary.  The foundation currently funds a research facility at the Indiana University Bren Simon Cancer Center — nationally recognized as a leader in research to find a cure, and has notably risen over $10 million for the cause, Miller said.  Miller also further discussed key entrepreneurial words to live by that she said drove the Vera Bradley business to its success. Miller said the story of the Vera Bradley Company began in February 1982 when she and her business partner, Barbara Bradley Baekgaard, while sitting in an Atlanta airport, noticed that women’s luggage was tragically lacking in style.center_img Vera Bradley started with a focus on luggage, sports bags and the smaller handbag, Miller said. However, women today also find frequent use from Vera Bradley laptop bags, cases and slips.  Taking a step back, as a college student, Miller said she lived in a world where women went to school to be either teachers or nurses.  “I don’t put a ceiling on anything,” she said. Patricia Miller, co-founder of the international company Vera Bradley, shared the secrets behind how her Indiana business dream evolved into the successful international company it is today, as she spoke to a group of students at the Vander Vennet Theater at Saint Mary’s Tuesday. In 1998, Vera Bradley joined the fight for a cure for breast cancer by establishing the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer (VBFBC).  “I have all the faith in the world,” Miller said.last_img read more
