In a greeting sent due to the 20th anniversary of the founding of Reporters Without Borders Germany, the President writes:“People who are threatened and persecuted in their countries due to their investigative research can rely on the support of Reporters Without Borders while in exile. The organisation not only provides people with a refuge; it also secures them with a new perspective in their life and work. Thanks to Reporters Without Borders, journalists in prison have a voice. The organisation tirelessly fights for their freedom, and often for many years.”Reporters Without Borders Germany is commemorating the organisation’s first 20 years with an event on 25 September 2014 in the Berlin “Academy of Arts”. The death of Egon Scotland, a journalist working for the Süddeutsche Zeitung, during the Yugoslav civil war in 1991 raised public awareness of the dangers faced by war correspondents. The shock resulting from this situation, combined with the desire of Reporters sans Frontières in Paris to internationalise the organisation, subsequently led to the foundation of the German section in 1994.Astrid Frohloff, spokesperson for the executive board of Reporters Without Borders Germany stated that “the recent gruesome killings of journalists in Syria at the hands of the terrorist group IS clearly demonstrate the dangers faced by journalists in regions of conflict.” She continued: “Yet journalists are also threatened and persecuted by dictatorships such as China and authoritarian regimes such as Azerbaijan. This is why our work is as important today as it was 20 years ago. This is equally true with regard to the suppression of the freedom of the press and freedom of expression by international intelligence services and their massive and ungrounded surveillance of journalists.”Reporters Without Borders supports persecuted journalists throughout the world. One such journalist is Sihem Bensedrine, a human rights activist from Tunisia. She has been targeted and arrested merely for publishing critical articles. Reporters Without Borders has supported her on various occasions, including during periods when she has been forced into temporary exile. Sihem Bensedrine stated that, “Reporters Without Borders acts as a voice for everyone who has been silenced and provides a strong anchor against injustice and will continue to do so”. Reporters Without Borders Germany has invited long-term associates, supporters and representatives from media, politics and civil society, as well as other guests to the anniversary event in Berlin. Thomas Roth, a presenter of one of Germany’s main daily news magazines Tagesthemen, will hold the commemorative speech. Emin Milli, a journalist from Azerbaijan who had to flee his country and Meera Jamal from Pakistan will report on the media situation in their countries and their work with Reporters Without Borders Germany.

Oxford Union attempts to entice Taylor Swift to speak

first_imgThe Oxford Union on Wednesday uploaded a video of its most famous recent guest speakers edited into a rendition of Taylor Swift’s hit song ‘Shake It Off’.The video was then tweeted to the American superstar along with the invitation “Fancy joining us in Oxford? #shakeitoff”. Swift is yet to respond to the tweet.It has been well-received by Taylor Swift fans around the world, and features Morgan Freeman, Stephen Fry, Malala Yousafsei, Sir Ian McKellan, Piers Morgan, Sepp Blatter, Psy, A$AP Rocky and a number of other prominent recent guests.Oxford Union President Charles Vaughan said, “We made this video to showcase some of the great speakers the Oxford Union has hosted in the past couple of years. The video took a solid week to make, so we’re glad people seem to like it!”Swift’s busy touring schedule has been cited as her reason for not having accepted previous invitations which have been extended to her. It is yet to be seen whether the Union’s new, public strategy will pay off, but the possibility is likely to excite many members.Lottie Ritchie, who has finished her final year of PPE at Christ Church, told Cherwell, “I can’t imagine Bridge without Taylor Swift any more, which means that my life wouldn’t be the same without her. Bringing her to the Union would give me the chance to tell her that.”The Oxford Union’s term card for Michaelmas 2015 will be published during Freshers’ Week.last_img read more

Australian zinc refiner opens 125 MW, onsite solar farm

first_imgAustralian zinc refiner opens 125 MW, onsite solar farm FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Renew Economy:A 125 MW solar farm built to lower costs and underpin the expansion of Korean zinc refiner Sun Metals in north Queensland has been officially opened at its site, south of Townsville.The ground-breaking project, which was constructed by RCR Tomlinson, marked the first large-scale solar farm to be built directly by a major energy user in Australia, and signaled the start of the shift of Australian heavy industry away from “baseload” coal power and to renewable energy.Since then, Sun Metals has been joined by UK steel billionaire Sanjeev Gupta, who earlier this week launched his own plans to build more than 1GW of dispatchable renewable energy to expand Australia’s manufacturing and heavy industry around a supply of cheap and reliable energy.Speaking at the solar farm’s launch, Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the project demonstrated that no new coal-fired power generation needed to be built in the state’s north, despite calls for just that from various Coalition party members, including the local member, the MP for Dawson, George Christensen. “There is no need for a new coal-fired power station for Queensland. I have ruled that out,” she said.Sun Metals chief Yun Choi said the $200 million solar farm gave Sun Metals the ability to produce 30 percent of its own electricity for the refinery, while also providing an opportunity to sell power to the grid. “Sun Metals’ mission is to become the safest, the most environmentally responsible and the most competitive zinc refinery in the world,” Choi said.“The solar farm is one-of-a-kind in Australia in that it will directly power a large industrial user and export electricity into the National Electricity Market. Now that the solar farm is operational, it will enable the refinery to be the largest single site renewable consumer in Australia.”More: “No need for new coal:” Sun Metals formally opens solar farm in “George” townlast_img read more

Ronald Korotaj: “Tourism is a young calf that can give a lot more milk”

first_imgThe Croatian hotel industry is the ‘locomotive’ of tourism and the overall economy, and its importance is not yet sufficiently understood, not even at the level of the Government, which takes small but still insufficient steps for a better investment climate and business sector, he said on Thursday. of the Congress of Hoteliers, the president of UPUHH, Ronald Korotaj, writes Lider.The two-day congress is organized by the Croatian Hotel Employers’ Association (UPUHH) and brings together numerous domestic and foreign hoteliers, representatives of tourism, state and financial institutions, consulting companies and others to discuss global trends and challenges, problems and ideas for better hoteliers.Due to the large share of tourism in GDP, which is significantly contributed by hoteliers with investment and overall business, tourism should be discussed at every session of the Government, which is seen as an ‘old cow that needs to be milked to the end’. ‘a young calf that can give a lot more milk’ ‘ Korotaj expressed himself pictorially.Among the measures advocated by hoteliers, he singled out, among other fiscal relief, better regulated labor legislation, adequate law on tourist land and 10 percent VAT, because it turned out that only with such a rate, investments accelerate. “Although the investment climate in Croatia is not yet good, hoteliers still have to continue investing because the market demands it, especially since ten new hotels appear in the world every day, which is more than 3600 a year. Investments are therefore necessary in Croatia to catch up with the world. “said Korotaj.Kristjan Staničić, Director of the Main Office of the Croatian Tourist Board (HTZ), also points out that the Government must recognize tourism and hospitality as the most important economic sectors, which need a stable legal and fiscal framework for further growth and development, and the CNTB will do everything it can to better promotion and positioning in the markets. The necessary synergistic approach of all in the community was considered important for this development by the Deputy Mayor of Zagreb Olivera Majić, who pointed out that more than 80 percent of overnight stays in Zagreb were realized in its 62 hotels, as well as that investments in new and renovation of existing hotels are being prepared. the capital. Envoy and advisor to the Croatian President Davorin Štetner warned of the problem of emigration, which is detrimental to finding labor for tourism and construction, without which there are no new facilities. “The most important thing is a stable regulatory framework, not that the rules change every year, with the example of reducing corporate taxes being a good direction for cutting and other levies because that would generate more revenue and we believe the government can. ” considers Stetner.Noting that Croatia is highly sought after by tourists, but also has a large public debt and still unfavorable financing conditions with costs up to five times higher than, for example, in Germany, Tomislav Čorak from the consulting company Boston Consulting Group believes that one of the solutions for ‘easier’ investing was a model of public-private partnership and ‘crowdfunding’, which is poorly applied in Croatia, and would be good, especially for tourism in cities and in smaller amounts. “Tourist demand for Croatia has grown 50 percent faster than globally in five years, and there is no doubt that it is an attractive destination, it may no longer need large promotional spots, but the problem is that in the last few years the increase in overnight stays was close to 10 percent , and the increase in the number of beds in hotels is only 2,5 percent. This indicates that we have entered this period a little unprepared for so much demand, hotel beds are now very much lacking, because without it there is no stronger season extension or higher revenues and this increased demand should be better used for investment in hotels.said Corak, reports Lider.The second day of the 20th UPUHH Congress began with the presentation of an analysis of the work of the Croatian hotel industry in the last 3 years, presented by the President of UPUHH Ronald Korotaj. The Croatian hotel industry grew by 2017 percent in 8,75, and our camping industry achieved almost the same growth. At the same time, Korotaj said, “private accommodation in Croatia has grown in double digits.” Tourism library.The President of UPUHH presented and commented on other figures related to the work of the Croatian hotel industry in the last 3 years.Business Review 2017Utilization of hotel capacities taking 9 months a year 2017.

They must not think that they are the purpose of their existence and not the hotel industrySaid Korotaj.Source: Lider / Tourism library&lt;br /&gt;<br />

IPL franchises see glass half-full despite  financial hit from COVID-19

first_imgBy Amlan ChakrabortyNEW DELHI (Reuters) – The Indian Premier League’s eight teams are counting the cost of COVID-19’s impact on their finances but having faced the prospect of the tournament being wiped out by the pandemic this year they are taking a ‘glass half-full’ view of the situation.The IPL’s original March start was scuppered by the first wave of the novel coronavirus and India’s cricket board (BCCI) had to pull out all the stops to rescue the Twenty20 league, which has an estimated $6.8 billion brand value.The tournament has been shifted to the United Arab Emirates, will be played under a hastily-arranged title sponsor and will start on Sept. 19 — nearly six months later than scheduled.After Vivo paused its title sponsorship for this year’s edition, fantasy gaming company Dream11 took it up for 2.22 billion Indian rupees (22.75 million pounds), roughly half of the 4.4 billion the Chinese smartphone maker paid annually.“The discount provided to Dream11 would be a major (financial) hit for the BCCI, along with making arrangements for bio-secure bubble which will be an additional cost burden on the board,” Santosh N, an external advisor at financial consultancy firm Duff & Phelps, told Reuters.The league shares 50% of the title sponsorship money with the eight franchises, who will also miss out on gate receipts and in-stadium revenue this year while existing sponsors demand discounts in the absence of fan initiatives.The switch has seen Delhi Capitals lose shirt sponsor Daikin, with the air-conditioning equipment maker saying the new dates did not work for them.“The reason being the business scenario and the timing, which earlier, being the summer, would call for advertising efforts to create awareness and recall for the AC category,” a Daikin spokesman told Reuters.Capitals Chairman Parth Jindal said the BCCI should look at compensating the franchises.“If the BCCI doesn’t compensate, there will be a significant loss to each franchise, about a 30% drop in revenues,” Jindal told Mint newspaper earlier this month.SILVER LININGBut with the BCCI at risk of a $547 million drop in revenue had the entire season been cancelled, treasurer Arun Sigh Dhumal preferred to look on the bright side.“When you encounter such challenging times and so many impediments, you are bound to lose on certain revenues,” Dhumal told Reuters.“Looking at the overall picture, everybody should be happy that at least we’ve been able to organise it.“At such short notice, we’ve been able to get a new title sponsor. It speaks volumes of IPL as a brand, and how it has grown over the years.”Sponsors continue to trickle in for the franchises and the league also welcomed edutech start-up Unacademy as a new sponsor on Saturday on a three-year deal, reportedly worth 1.2 billion rupees.Santosh said that as the tournament draws closer more would come onboard. “And with the IPL happening around the festive season this time around, it’s an added bonus for the companies to be associated with it,” he added.last_img read more

Lakers’ D’Angelo Russell OK with Rajon Rondo comparisons

first_imgEL SEGUNDO >> It’s been said before that Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell might be the next Rajon Rondo, and if that’s the case, it’s just fine with Russell.The L.A. rookie and the Sacramento Kings guard share a hometown, Louisville, and a high school basketball coach, but Russell would like to share some of the same intangible qualities that have made Rondo what he is today. “That edge about him,” Russell said Tuesday afternoon after practice. “A lot of guys don’t really like him, a lot of coaches don’t really like him, but he still finds a way to win. If that’s what it takes to be a winner in the league, I think I’m going to follow that path.”While it might seem that there are plenty of other quality point guard role models in the NBA to choose from, Russell made it clear that it’s not the agitating qualities in Rondo that he admires. It’s the fact that he’s never veered from his identity. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Injury updateKobe Bryant didn’t practice Tuesday, but did come in for treatment. Coach Byron Scott said he will play Wednesday against Sacramento.Scott also said that Larry Nance Jr. (knee) is out for at least the next two games and they’ll re-evaluate his status this weekend. While that guarantees more time for Julius Randle for the next two games, Scott isn’t saying whether or not it will moving forward.“Like I said, Larry, I still look at as our starting power forward right now, but it’s great to have two young guys that you can kind of rely on,” Scott said. “That is definitely one of our stronger positions on our team when you have two guys like that. I’m not going to speculate if he’s going to start after Larry gets back or not; it depends on how long Larry is out and when he gets back. I just want Julius to continue to grow and to play the way he’s playing.”However, Scott did say that the more time Randle spends on the floor, the better he gets.“Julius, if he plays 20-25 minutes, he’s almost a walking double-double. He’s been able to do that all season long, coming off the bench or a starter. If he’s starting, obviously playing more minutes, but I think that’s definitely something that he can average over his career.”center_img As a young player, Russell wants to make sure he never veers from his own, either.“Just really being myself my whole career,” Russell said. “I don’t want to turn into somebody I’m not. I can control what I can control and that’s about it. I don’t really worry about those other things. Just trying to keep that positive mentality and being competitive.”Rondo has effectively rebounded from his disastrous last season with numbers that are up across the board. He’s still a dynamic threat on the floor, almost as dynamic as he was in Boston. Russell is familiar with Rondo’s tendencies from having played against him in high school, when Rondo would attend workouts to see former coach Doug Bibby. Russell knows he isn’t looking to shoot the jump shot, but he’s capable of opening up the game with just one make. Call it a pride thing and it’s a player thing, but Russell wants to go up against his fellow Louisville native just to prove he’s capable of living up to the billing of the “next Rondo.”“A lot of people have probably been feeding him my name growing up. We had the same high school coach, who I’m sure has been talking his ear off about me,” Russell said. “I haven’t really had the opportunity to prove myself, so anytime I go up against him, I just want to prove myself.”last_img read more

first_imgEach team had a practice before being allowed to scrimmage in front of a team of some of the best hockey minds in Nelson.“Final decisions will be mine but I can’t give 47 players a good look so having another set of eyes is good,” Maida explained, looking to the likes of former Nelson co-coach Simon Wheeldon, Mario DiBella from the Kootenay Ice Major Midget coaching staff and Greg Andrusak, just to name a few of the evaluators, to help out.First up for Nelson defending KIJHL champion Beaver Valley Nitehawks for a 7 p.m. puck drop.Wednesday the teams play game two of the series at the Hawks’ Nest in Fruitvale.Maida said fans would see a mix of veterans and rookies for the two games against the Nitehawks as Maida and assistant coach Stu Linnen assess the players.Some of those rookies include goalie Adam Maida, forwards Nolan Percival and Matt MacDonald along with defencemen Justin Post and Cole Arcuri.After Wednesday’s game Maida plans to make another round of cuts before settling on the bulk of this coming season’s roster for the final two-preseason games Sunday in the Sunflower City and, at home, Tuesday, September 11 against Castlegar Rebels.The Leafs open the regular season schedule Friday, September 14 at home against Murdoch rival Castlegar.CAMP NOTES: Two grads of Nelson Minor Hockey — Adam DiBella and Isaac MacLeod — skated with the Leafs during the weekend.

Saints pull front-running TRU back by stopping Spartans 6-0

first_img“TWU is a hard-working team that can be very difficult to break down defensively, and even when you do they’ve got one of the top goalies in the league to stop the puck.””Tonight we made some skilled plays, but we were also tough to defend in how we moved our feet and cycled the puck,” Dubois added.”It’s really how we need to play night in, night out to be successful on a consistent basis.”Cody Fidgett opened the scoring midway through the first period when he converted a feed from Saints captain Logan Proulx and beat Spartans netminder Harry Fredeman high to the glove.And the hosts doubled their lead 22 seconds later when Garrett Kucher created space down the right wing and fed a nifty cross ice pass to Darnell Dyck for a tap-in at the far post. Fidgett and Dyck continued to do the damage offensively in the second period, as Fidgett scored on a tic-tac-toe passing play from Proulx and Jackson Garrett before Dyck fired a shot on a shorthanded rush to extend the lead to four. Mason Spear beat Fredeman from in tight on a Saints’ power play in the third period and Dyck completed his hat trick with just 22 seconds remaining in regulation to cap the scoring. Selkirk netminder Chris Hurry picked up his second shutout of the season, turning aside 23 shots. Fredeman, who entered the game with a 1.15 GAA and .966 SV%, allowed six goals on 53 shots but also made a number of outstanding saves that kept his team close over the first 40 minutes of action. The victory was the fifth straight on home ice for the Saints to open the BCIHL regular season and the ninth overall dating back to preseason play in September.Overall, the team has won 26 of 27 games on home ice since the start of the 2012/13 campaign. “Getting wins at home is something that we pride ourselves on,” says Dubois. “We have great fans and the guys very much appreciate and feed off of the energy in the building on game nights. There’s certainly an extra motivation to perform when you’re receiving such tremendous support.” The two teams return to action, this time for a doubleheader in the Fraser Valley.The series opens Friday at 7 p.m. before the teams wrap up the set Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.Both games can be viewed online at www.FastHockey.com. The Saints’ next home game is on Saturday, November 16th against Simon Fraser University. Selkirk College Saints jumped into a three-way tie for top spot in B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League standings after posting a convincing 6-0 shutout over visiting rinity Western University Saturday at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. The win maintains a perfect home record for the Saints in the 2013/14 season.on Saturday, scoring a pair of goals in each period to top Trinity Western University by a 6-0 score at the Castlegar Recreation Complex. TWU entered the game atop league standings with a 5-1 mark.But Saints carried the play through most of the game and outshot their visitors by a finally tally of 53-23.”We headed into tonight’s game off a couple of losses and our whole group came out prepared to dictate the speed and tempo of the game,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.last_img read more
