El lugar del Santo Sepulcro se encuentra bajo el control de la antigua ciudadela y desde 1967 está en manos de Israel después de la guerra de los “Seis Días”.El periódico francés “Le Monde” conocido por su línea liberal y pro revolucionaria, dijo recientemente en su editorial: “Los venezolanos llevan una lucha continua contra el despilfarro, la  corrupción y el autoritarismo político. Es un cóctel socio-nacionalista inspirado en el ejemplo cubano y el anti-imperialismo militante que saca sus fuerzas de un viejo fondo revolucionario latinoamericano. Es la herencia de un caudillo militar”.Acaba de aparecer el libro “Chavistas en el imperio: secretos, tácticas y escándalos”  escrito por el periodista venezolano Casto Ocando que revela las inversiones secretas en los Estados Unidos y los negocios que han operado desde la llegada de Hugo Chávez al poder. El libro expone la doble cara del chavismo: por una parte una enemistad feroz contra el país del norte y  por otra las grandes inversiones secretas como empresas y edificios de lujo en el mismo. En una extensa lista el libro revela los nombres de los ministros, militares, parlamentarios y banqueros que están bajo investigación por el gobierno federal de Estados Unidos. El libro también revela los dineros del petróleo que han sido empleados para sobornar en el país y el extranjero.Recientemente  hubo una reunión en Caracas con el fin de encontrar puntos comunes para la paz. La oposición pide la libertad de todos los presos políticos, el desarme de los grupos armados patrocinados por el gobierno, la libertad de prensa y reunión,  la destitución de funcionarios chavistas en la Asamblea Nacional, el Ejército, la Corte Suprema y otras instancias como la dirección de Ministerio del Tesoro. Estos puntos serán remitidos al ejecutivo mediante un delegado imparcial. Desde ya se cree que el gobierno rechazará discutir esos puntos. También se aceptó con beneplácito la medición del Vaticano.A pesar de que las leyes brasileñas permiten que las iglesias no paguen impuestos  debido a su labor social hay iglesias evangélicas “que además de intentar llevar creyentes al paraíso celestial, también operan acciones para llevar dólares a paraísos fiscales”. Por esa razón,  Ministerios Públicos investigan a  templos que pudieran ser usados para lavado de dinero, ocultamiento de patrimonios y evasión fiscal.Bob Coy, joven pastor que dirigió la segunda iglesia evangélica más numerosa del Estado de la Florida desde 1985, ha renunciado. La iglesia llamada “Capilla del Calvario” tiene 20,000 miembros y está situada en Fort Lauderdale, una ciudad cercana a Miami.  Coy dijo que renunciaba por razón de “dos fallas morales” que había cometido pero no dijo cuáles eran.David White, que fue profesor del Seminario Evangélico de Teología de Matanzas, Cuba,  falleció el 1 de abril en su hogar de Nashville, Tennessee, a la edad de 92 años. Por varios años enseñó ética y otras materias en Matanzas. Hizo su tesis doctoral sobre el pensamiento de José Ortega y Gasset (intelectual español, 1883-1955). Sus alumnos lo respetaban por su carácter sobrio y sus conocimientos de varias materias teológicas. Al principio de la revolución en 1960 junto con otros misioneros norteamericanos en Cuba, escribió una carta al Presidente de Estados Unidos afirmando que la revolución era un “genuino movimiento nacionalista” sin conexión con las ideas socialistas de la época. Posteriormente cambió su posición al ver lo que pasaba en Cuba.Bargeeta Almby, misionera evangélica sueca de 72 años fue víctima de un asalto a mano armada en Punjab, India, donde ha trabajado por 38 años. No perdió la vida pero está en estado crítico en un hospital local.

No news of Akbar Ganji for the past 25 days

first_img RSF_en Noting that Iranian journalist Akbar Ganji has not been allowed any visits since his return to Evin prison from hospital on 3 September, Reporters Without Borders today voiced concern and outrage about the behaviour of the Iranian authorities towards him and their failure to keep their promises.“Ganji seems to have been placed in total solitary confinement in a special section of Evin to which only the Revolutionary Guards have access,” the press freedom organisation said. “Shutting him away like this is a flagrant violation of Iranian law, which explicitly says detainees may receive visits from their relatives and lawyers. The sole aim of the prison authorities seems to be to break Ganji completely.”Reporters Without Borders added: “ We once again condemn of the failure of senior Iranian officials to respect their undertakings towards Ganji and his family. We have always supported negotiations with the precise objective of obtaining his release. Now, faced by the silence coming from the judicial authorities, we are resolved to press on with our campaign. The lack of any news is particularly worrying.”Reached by telephone, Ganji’s wife, Massoumeh Shafii, said she was also very worried by the lack of news and the fact that she has not been able to visit him since 26 August.Ganji lost at least 25 kilos in the course of a hunger which he continued for more than two months. After ending the hunger strike on 22 August, he was allowed only two weeks to recover in hospital before being sent back to prison on 3 September.Over 15 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. More than two hundreds news staffs around the globe are thus sponsoring colleagues by regularly petitioning authorities for their release and by publicising their situations sothat their cases will not be forgotten.Currently, Akbar Ganji is sponsored by Le Devoir, Nice-Matin, La Montagne June 11, 2021 Find out more September 20, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 No news of Akbar Ganji for the past 25 days Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Receive email alerts News IranMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information Iran is stepping up pressure on journalists, including foreign journalists, in run-up to election News Follow the news on Iran News Organisation IranMiddle East – North Africa June 9, 2021 Find out more Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists to go further March 18, 2021 Find out more Noting that Iranian journalist Akbar Ganji has not been allowed any visits since his return to Evin prison from hospital on 3 September, Reporters Without Borders today voiced concern and outrage about the behaviour of the Iranian authorities towards him and their failure to keep their promises.

Somalia: Journalists among dead and wounded from Mogadishu truck bomb

first_img SomaliaAfrica Condemning abuses Violence October 16, 2017 – Updated on October 20, 2017 Somalia: Journalists among dead and wounded from Mogadishu truck bomb March 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information to go further RSF_en News The massive explosion at a busy Mogadishu intersection on 14 October, Somalia’s deadliest ever terrorist attack, flattened several buildings as well as killing hundreds, including freelance video-reporter Ali Nur Siad-Ahmed. Four journalists were among the wounded: Abdukadir Mohamed Abdulle of Voice of America, Mohamed Omar Bakay of Goobjoog Radio and freelancers Abdiqani Ali Adan and Ahmed Abdi Hadi. Abdulle was taken to an intensive care at Ummah Hospital in southern Mogadishu. Another journalist, Abdullahi Osman Farah, working for Mandeeq Education Radio (part of the Goobjoog group), who was present at the location of the attack has still not been found. Siad-Ahmed is the second Somali journalist to be killed in a terrorist attack this year. The first was Abdullahi Osman Moallim, who worked for Radio Codka Hiiraan and state-owned Jubbaland TV. He died on 13 September from injuries sustained three days earlier in a bomb explosion at the hotel where he was waiting to attend a press conference. No one has so far claimed Saturday’s bombing but it bears all the hallmarks of Al-Shabaab, a militant Islamist group that has been on RSF’s list of Press Freedom Predators since 2008. Al-Shabaab has banned radio and TV in the regions it controls and constantly persecutes journalists. Ranked 167th out of 180 countries in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index, Somalia is the deadliest country in Africa for media personnel. RSF estimates that 43 journalists have been killed in Somalia since 2010.

‘Double up’ option adds 630 beds to UL accommodation stock

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter University you Limerick campus aerialPhoto: True MediaUNIVERSITY of Limerick has announced a major plan to expand its student on-campus student accommodation to more than 3,400 beds to meet growing demand.A spokesperson said the extra 630 beds would “provide a more affordable option for students”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The University will introduce a new shared accommodation option, in time for the new academic year this coming September.UL President, Dr Des Fitzgerald said: “With the growth in student numbers and following a detailed review of different options and a survey of student requirements, we are planning to develop shared accommodation for students.”He said the existing campus accommodation would be “retrofit as twin rooms rather than single rooms with the upgrade to be completed for next September.“There are six student accommodation villages on the UL campus, and this will add another 630 beds to the 2,850 already available in our on-campus residences,” added Dr Fitzgerald.A UL spokesman said the university has experienced phenomenal growth in the past 12 years, with an almost 50 per cent increase in student numbers from 11,500 to 16,300 in 2019.Michael Foley, Chief Operations Officer at Campus Life Services, which manages UL’s accommodation, said they  encountered significant demand for on campus accommodation last August, which made it particularly challenging for students and parents in the search for accommodation at the beginning of term”.He said the additional beds “will help to address the challenge on supply of accommodation in the short term, but also provides a more affordable cost option for parents with twin room costs ranging from under €3,000 to €4,250 per person which includes utilities and UL Sport membership”.UL’s student residences are let on a commercial basis in the summer months.“We continue to promote to local house owners the tax free option of renting a room to students. This rent a room option can provide up to €14,000 a year to the householder and is becoming popular for households and students. This rent a room sector now provides five per cent of the university’s accommodation requirements and has expanded since it was initially promoted in 2017,” added Mr Foley.Last year UL’s Campus Accommodation was ranked number one in Ireland for both accommodation quality and cost in the ‘I-Graduate’ international student barometer survey. The university also recently completed a €20 million four-year refurbishment programme to raise its on-campus accommodation standards.Rental fees for UL on-campus accommodation include full utility costs (electricity, heating, cable TV and licence, refuse and Wi-Fi) as well as membership of the UL Sports Arena gym and access to free campus residence events as part of the Campus Life programme.

COVID-19- “State’s Affidavit Doesn’t Reflect Ground Reality, Only Paints Rosy Picture, No Patient Should Remain Unattended”: Gujarat High Court

first_imgNews UpdatesCOVID-19- “State’s Affidavit Doesn’t Reflect Ground Reality, Only Paints Rosy Picture, No Patient Should Remain Unattended”: Gujarat High Court Sparsh Upadhyay27 April 2021 4:06 AMShare This – xHearing the suo motu proceedings initiated by it to take stock of the surge in COVID-19 cases in the state of Gujarat, the Gujarat High Court on Tuesday (April 27) expressed its unhappiness over the response filed by the State Government pursuant to the Court’s last week order.The Gujarat High Court on Tuesday (20th April) asked the state government to come up with a Reasonable Remdesivir Distribution Policy.A Bench of Chief Justice Vikram Nath and Bhargav D Karia had perused the affidavit-in-reply filed on behalf of the State respondents covering most of the issues flagged by the HC in its 15th April Order (more details about the affidavit-in-reply/hearing could be read here).Now, today, the same bench heard the counsels appearing for different parties, the Advocate General and the Government pleader. The main issue which the Court discussed several times during the course of the hearing was related to the policy of the hospitals in denying admission to such patients who are COVID affected but reach hospitals in a private vehicle. Apparently, the hospitals are admitting only those patients who are coming to the hospital in a Government-run 108 Ambulance.Importantly, Justice Karia remarked,”No matter from which vehicle (private or government) patients are coming to the hospitals. How can doctors say that if you are not coming from a 108 ambulance, we will not treat you and will let you die?”Justice Karia: No matter from which vehicle (private or government) patients are coming to the hospitals. How can doctors say that if you are not coming from a 108 ambulance, we will not treat you and will let you die.CJ: How can doctors deny treatment pic.twitter.com/T7bvzs4SRp— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 27, 2021Issued raised by the Counsels Aadhaar Card has been made compulsory for COVID treatment, it shouldn’t be so even when SC says that Aadhaar isn’t mandatory for availing services. This condition should be withdrawn as many patients would be there who do not have an Aadhaar card. [Anand Yagnik]The Municipal Authorities must not refuse admission to patients just because they do not reside in their area limits. After examining the Aadhaar card of patients, they are refusing such patients’ admission on account of their residence. [Anand Yagnik]The Private Hospitals are not implementing/following State/central schemes even when the state has suggested that Maha Vatsalva and Ayushman Bharat be merged. [Anand Yagnik] The state’s demand for Oxygen is presently 1200 MT, but, as per the Central Government supply scheme, only 900 MT is being given to the State. 300 MT demand needs to be bridged. [Shalin Mehta] 201.58 crores allocated by the Central Government over 160 PSA plants. 33 are functional, 59 coming up by April end, 80 by May end. These plants could be set up within a couple of weeks. But People who are in the Oxygen manufacturing business are hindering the process. [Shalin Mehta]Oxygen shortage would be faced in Gujarat. The issue needs to be addressed by the Central Government. The State of Gujarat is already giving oxygen to other states like MP, this may lead to a situation where there would a shortage of oxygen in the state itself. [Shalin Mehta]India’s Oxygen need is 5000 MT and the production is 7200 MT, so there is no shortage, the problem is related to the supply chain, and it isn’t about Oxygen production. [Shalin Mehta]The waiting period for 108 ambulances is 32-48 hours. We need to break the chain. We had an inauguration event, where a Z+ security person came, there was photo ops. Isn’t the issue of Reservation for beds for VIP and VVIP, unreasonable as per Article 14? [Counsel Kavina]Submissions made by the State Government At the outset, the Advocate General, Kamal Trivedi submitted that till April 15, things were in control and thereafter, the State started facing crises after crises. He also mentioned that the Crisis of Oxygen, Remdesivir injection is there and the lack of manpower was also there.Importantly, he submitted that it wasn’t the intention of the State of Government to assert that it was working fine. He also said,”I will say that we are dealing with an unprecedented situation. Admission to hospitals is difficult. The state is conscious of what we need to do, we are open to suggestions.”AG: No intention of the State of Government to assert that we are working fine. I will say that we are dealing with an unprecedented situation. Admission to hospitals is difficult. The state is conscious of what we need to do, we are open to suggestions. pic.twitter.com/anQotX34xo— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 27, 2021He further accepted that the situation was precarious, not just in Gujarat but pan India and that is why the Central Government had come into action. It was allocating Oxygen, Remdesivir, and other resources to the State Government.He further added that the State Government was open to suggestions and that the system was in place but there was a deficit of resources.Issues discussed by the CourtWhen the Advocate General submitted before the Court that he came across a video clip, wherein one of the officers’ phone number was made public and it was said that if 108 ambulance was not available, the call could be made to the said officer, the Chief Justice asked him as to what actions did the State Government take in such a matterFurther, the Chief justice also added that he had also come across such reports, and he enquired from the State Government as to what actions were being taken by it. The CJ also remarked that the Court was getting inputs that things were not working in a transparent manner. CJ: We have also come across such reports, what actions are being taken by the State? Should the officer become 108 ambulance alternative?We are getting inputs that things are not working in a transparent manner. You (AG) should be getting more inputs than what we get. pic.twitter.com/lvFS7nCPGe— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 27, 2021Thereafter, Justice Karia asked the Advocate General as to what would happen on May 1 when the number of COVID positive would be double? Justice Karia: What will happen on May 1 when the number of COVID positive would be double?What steps are you going to take? This is the way the system is working?What is your preparation for the future? NOTHING.You are talking only about Ahmedabad, what about Gujarat? pic.twitter.com/9cdULCnOUk— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 27, 2021Importantly, he added that there was a scarcity of oxygen and that the people were forced to pay 10 times to get oxygen. “Everything is on paper, nothing on ground reality,” added Justice Karia.CJ: We are not happy with today’s response of the State Government. Issues related to 108 Ambulance, display boards, etc. have not been solved by the State.Even if a patient is coming from outside the city of Ahmedabad, how can we deny them the treatment? pic.twitter.com/695B9lKo7Y— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) April 27, 2021Justice Karia also remarked,”State’s affidavit is painting a rosy picture and is not in touch with the ground reality. We can’t sit on the ivory towers. The state has to take steps to break the chain.”Thereafter, the Chief Justice also said,”There should be an assurance from the State Government that no patient is unattended, even if they could be given treatment outside the hospital, that would also be alright.Lastly, the matter was posted for further hearing on Tuesday (May 4) and the State Government was directed to file a report indicating the measures taken by it to deal with the COVID situation in the State.

Storms move across US, warm spring temperatures in Midwest and Northeast

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — An active storm pattern is moving across the country with several systems that will bring heavy rain, strong thunderstorms, mountain snow and even a threat for flash flooding to southern California. On Monday morning, we are watching three storm systems, one of which has already brought heavy snow to the West from California to Nevada and into Idaho where some areas already got up to 8 inches of snow. This storm system has moved out into the Plains and the Midwest and will be bringing showers and thunderstorms to the area Monday. Two more storm systems are moving into the West Coast Monday, one in the northern Rockies and another one for southern California and the Southwest. Let’s concentrate on that second western storm that will move into southern California Monday night with heavy rain, thunderstorms and a threat for flash flooding and even mudslides. Some of the rain will also move into Arizona and the deserts where some flash flooding is possible.By Wednesday, the Southwest should continue to see heavy rain and a threat for flash flooding. Meanwhile, the northern Rockies storm system will quickly move into the South and bring strong thunderstorms with damaging winds and heavy rain. In southern California, locally 2 to 3 inches of rain is possible with higher elevations getting up to a foot of snow. Locally, more than 3 inches of rain is possible in the South and about 2 inches of rain is expected in the Midwest and parts of the Great Lakes.Elsewhere, the warmest temperature of the year so far happened Sunday in Chicago when the city reached 67 degrees. Also, in the Twin Cities, temperatures reaches 61 degrees which was also the warmest temperature of the year. On Monday, the warmth moves east with highs near 70 degrees in Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
