Though playing against these two teams is very different from each other, it is frustrating that we could not convert a single goal from these chances (15 shots on goal) against Ireland. But at the same time, I take this as a positive that we have the abilities to puncture any team’s defence to create potential opportunities. When we play USA, the emphasis would certainly be on scoring from these opportunities created. We have to execute better and the girls are working for that,” Marijne added.While the forward-line needs to ensure they score from the opportunities, the team’s defence has held strong. While Ireland made just 10 circle entries, England made 34. “Our defence will be one of our advantages against USA. The loss against Ireland has not affected the confidence of the team because we know that if we have created enough chances against Ireland while our defence has held strong, we can do the same against USA too. ”With one draw (1-1 against England), one loss (0-1) against Ireland, India are placed third in the Pool B points table. USA too have drawn once against England and lost 1-3 to Ireland. Both India and USA have one point each with India being ahead due to goal difference. To remain in contention for a quarterfinal berth, India need a win or a draw from Sunday’s game. “It is a must-win match for us on Sunday and there is no doubt that,” concluded Marijne.On July 29, the Indian Women’s Hockey team will take on USA at 21.30 hours (IST). The match will be shown live on Star Sports 2, Star Sports HD 2 and Hotstar and DD Sports (Only India matches).

Why I’m planning to buy more of this 7%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stock Image source: Getty Images Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge! Recent market declines have thrown up some fantastic bargains in the FTSE 100. This could be an opportunity that’s too good to pass up for long-term investors. With that in mind, here’s one 7%-yielding FTSE 100 dividend stock that’s recently fallen out of favour with the market. However, it looks appealing as an income investment from a long-term perspective.Income and growthBritish American Tobacco (LSE: BATS) is one of the FTSE 100’s top income stocks. Ethical considerations aside, this company has one of the best dividend growth track records of all FTSE 100 companies. It has also achieved one of the most reliable earnings growth records of any large-cap stock over the past six years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Net profit has increased at a compound annual rate of 9% for the past six years. Meanwhile, British American has hiked its dividend at an annual rate of nearly 7% per annum.Recent trading updates from the business suggest that this trend will continue. For the year ended 31 December 2019, the company reported a 6.2% increase in adjusted revenue at current exchange rates. Adjusted profit increased by 7.6% and adjusted earnings per share jumped 9.1%.Meanwhile, the group’s strong cash flows allowed it to reduce net debt by 4%. Rising revenues, coupled with fatter profit margins, helped the company delivered this performance.These are all extremely positive developments. Analysts have expressed concern about British American’s high level of borrowings in the past, but this release seems to suggest that management has as the company’s debt pile under control. What’s more, the business was able to pay off around £2bn of debt, even after returning £4.5bn to shareholders via dividends.Following this performance, management has decided to increase the firm’s full-year dividend by 3.6%.Growth initiativesThe company’s 2019 results also show British American’s growth initiatives are yielding results. Revenue from so-called “new categories“, which includes tobacco heating and vapour products, such as e-cigarettes as well as “modern oral” tobacco products, increased nearly 37% year-on-year to £1.2bn at current exchange rates.Management is confident this trend can continue. It’s forecasting £5bn of revenues from these new growth initiatives by the end of the decade.Cash is kingBritish American’s impressive cash flow metrics suggest the dividend is exceptionally safe for the time being. At the time of writing, the stock supports a dividend yield of 6.5% for 2019. It’s also set to increase to nearly 7% over the next 12 months.Further, after recent declines, shares in the company are dealing at a price-to-earnings ratio of just 9.6, which suggests the stock offers a wide margin of safety at current levels. Indeed, considering British American’s strong cash generation, the track record of growth and future potential, this seems to undervalue the business substantially.As such, now could be a great time to snap up shares in this undervalued income champion. Its long-run potential is highly attractive, and the market-beating dividend yield means investors will be paid to wait for market sentiment to improve.  Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

20 Country Music Artists to Watch in 2017

first_img Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. For 2017, Pandora put together a list of country artists to watch. On the list is Lea Ann Womack’s daughter- Aubrie Sellers, Maren Morris, Beau- Ryan Hurd and brother duo who call themselves High Valley who live just past Spring Hill in Maury County.  They even wrote a song about it called “County Line.” Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 You have entered an incorrect email address!

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Tenille ArtsTenille Arts is hot on the scene with her new self-titled EP. Chosen for the 2016 Canadian Country Music Association Discovery Program, she’s been building her career at home, and recently moved to Nashville to pursue music full-time. With songwriting inspired by Don Henley and reminiscent of early Taylor Swift, and vocals the size of her native Canada, Arts’ future is bright.Brent CobbCobb introduces himself as a “songwriter/singer,” making it clear that his is the music of a writer first. He inherits the legacy of Kris Kristofferson and Guy Clark as well as the Southern gothic narratives of Bobby Gentry and Tony Joe White. Standout tracks on his 2016 release “Shine On Rainy Day” include the relatable “Solving Problems” and haunting family yarn “Down in the Gutter.”Luke CombsCombining energetic country pop and Southern rock, Luke Combs busted through the gates in 2016 with his current single “Hurricane.” With several appearances on Pandora Trendsetter’s Chart, and a recent label deal with Sony Nashville, Combs is set to conquer 2017.Russell DickersonFor this year’s wedding song, look no further than Dickerson’s “Yours.” He just released a hopelessly romantic EP and is set to kick off 2017 with a new label partnership. It’s only a matter of time before you’ll hear him mentioned alongside the likes of Thomas Rhett, Old Dominion and Cole Swindell.Erik DylanErik Dylan just released his first full-length album, “Heart of a Flatland Boy”, to acclaim from Red Dirt music fans everywhere. From dark trailer park sagas (“Pink Flamingos”) to breakup negotiations (“Willie Nelson T-Shirt”), Dylan delivers with an earthy, rocking sound and his lauded songwriting skills. For fans of Steve Earle, Cross Canadian Ragweed, Kip Moore and Eli Young Band.Seth EnnisSeth Ennis grew up all over the world in a military family before settling in Nashville to pursue a career in country music. A true renaissance man, he sings and plays all of the instruments on his debut track, “Woke Up in Nashville.” After catching the attention of Sony Nashville, he signed with them in late 2016.Ryan FolleseHot Chelle Rae singer Ryan Follese returned to his roots in 2016, dropping his first EP as a solo artist in the fall. A Nashville native and the son of songwriter parents, Ryan writes energetic, pop-infused tunes that hearken back to his previous work. They’re embellished with a hint of southern twang and cool acoustic instrumentation.Walker HayesIf anything can be said of Walker Hayes, it’s that, thankfully, he doesn’t quit. Early in his Nashville career, Hayes’ voice caught the attention of a major label, but the deal ultimately didn’t work out. After pounding the pavement for a few years, the Mobile, Alabama native has found his niche with timely, spoken word lyrics and visionary instrumentation on his two 8 Tracks EPs. Standout tracks include “Halloween” and “Mind Candy,” and we’re looking forward to more.High ValleyOne of two Canadian acts on this list, High Valley has been climbing the charts this year with “Make You Mine.” Brothers Brad and Curtis Rempel built up a substantial fan base at home before moving to Nashville and signing with Warner Music Group. Their sunny upbeat tunes and soaring harmonies speak for themselves, all the while celebrating their Mennonite roots.Taylor Ray HolbrookHolbrook got his start by posting a Luke Bryan cover on YouTube, but he’s been putting out his own brand of the homegrown country ever since moving to Nashville. A 100 percent DIY artist, Holbrook is focused on his fans, which is evident from his success on social media. For fans of Kane Brown and Brantley Gilbert, small towns and entrepreneurial grit.Ryan HurdLike many of our 2017 Artists to Watch, Ryan Hurd is a gifted songwriter. Aside from penning the music he sings, he has also written successful songs for acts like Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line, Blake Shelton and more. The boyfriend of Maren Morris (the most nominated artist at the 2016 CMA Awards), Hurd is paving his way with ultramodern pop-country tracks like “We Do Us” and “City Girl.”Cody JinksWelcome to life and heartbreak the way Merle would have done it. In keeping with troubadour tradition, the top-quality musicianship of Jinks’ band supports his baritone vocals, allowing his voice to shine through. He has also been spotted on our Pandora Trendsetters chart around the recent release of his latest album I’m Not the Devil. Fans of Sturgill Simpson and Chris Stapleton need to hear this.Steve MoaklerAnother artist in the middle of a renaissance, Moakler traded his singer-songwriter pop for country, and it sounds so good! Moakler has penned cuts with Dierks Bentley, Ashley Monroe, and Jake Owen. His lead single, “Suitcase,” is catching like wildfire, and we can’t wait to see where it leads.RaeLynnWith a fresh start at a new record label, RaeLynn has found her voice in the tracks leading up to the release of her upcoming album, WildHorse. The new songs, “Love Triangle,” title-track “Wildhorse” and “Diamonds” stand in contrast to her earlier material (in the best way). She got her start on Team Blake during season two of The Voice and is about to take 2017 by storm.Brandon RayBig Spring, Texas native Brandon Ray is no stranger to the road. He got his start in Nashville as Brett Eldredge’s guitarist and is now embarking on a solo career with his newest single, “American Way,” which he cowrote with Kip Moore. The similarities to Mellencamp are palpable in this catchy ode to middle American hometowns.Runaway JuneRunaway June is bringing country back in the form of transcendent, three-part harmonies and big voices. The trio includes lead singer and guitarist Naomi Cook, singer and mandolinist Hannah Mulholland and singer and guitarist Jennifer Wayne (Granddaughter of the great John Wayne). The group’s first single, “Lipstick,” is finding fans on Pandora and beyond with its high-energy twang and message of empowerment, qualities reminiscent of The Dixie Chicks and early Shania Twain.Adam SandersSanders found his calling while spending summers in Nashville with his uncle, professional musician Scotty Sanders. After becoming a full-time resident of Music City, he got his start like many on our list, as a songwriter. Since then, he’s had songs cut by Luke Bryan, Cole Swindell, and Dustin Lynch, ultimately deciding to make a go of it as a solo artist. Sanders has since toured across the country, finding success with his newest single, “Thunder.” For fans of Cole Swindell, Lee Brice, and David Nail.Aubrie SellersMaking good use of pedal steel, and a voice that is at once familiar and completely her own, Aubrie Sellers single-handedly defines a new style of “garage country” with her debut albumNew City Blues. Daughter of artists Lee Ann Womack and Jason Sellers, and stepdaughter of Miranda Lambert’s producer Frank Liddell, Aubrie pulls from familial influences and beyond to breathe new life into the phrase, “three chords and the truth.”The ShiresThe Shires is a British duo comprised of friends Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes. The former X Factor UK contestants have been hard at work finding new fans one tour stop at a time. Their music recently arrived in the US via Universal Music Group in Nashville. With their pop-country sound and stomping rhythms, this dynamic duo is an exciting discovery. If you like Lady Antebellum or Drake White, you’re going to love The Shires.Sister CWith two self-released Demo Sessions EPs out this fall, and a fanbase generating stint on the X Factor, Texas siblings Cirby, Carli and Celbi are just getting started as newly minted band Sister C. The trio’s underlying bluegrass influences are akin to early Dixie Chicks and The Wreckers, but the sound is wholly its own. The sisters combine the best of Texas – Western twang and soaring harmonies – with some occasional irreverent lyrics, à la Pistol Annies and Kacey Musgraves. Please enter your comment!

Regular giving levels steady following Olive Cooke coverage

According to Rapidata, cancellation rates for the second quarter of 2015 shows April (2.86%), May (2.72%) and June (2.81%) as “steady”, with just a very slight increase of under half a per cent on June 2014’s cancellation rate of 2.39%. Rates would have to increase by at least 1% to be considered notable.So, Rapidata is interpreting these figures as a sign of stability.Post-recession regular giving is steadyOverall Rapidata’s figures suggest regular giving has remained steady. Cancellation rates peaked at 4.09% in June 2009 at the height of the recession. In 2012 they were down to 2.99%, and in 2013 and 2014 lower still, before rising very slightly so far this year.Scott Gray, Managing Director of Rapidata commented:“Regular giving appears to be in positive shape with those people who are already committed to a cause continuing to support their chosen charities. Recent media angles may have incited a degree of unrest and concern but our figures are encouraging and I believe British charities remain close to the hearts of the public at this time.“However, whilst I see this as good news, there is anecdotal evidence that some fundraising campaigns are being delayed and others could experience reduced response rates. Whilst this does not impact cancellation rates in existing regular giving programmes, it could have an impact on the numbers of new regular donors being recruited, and the planned budgets and ROI for campaigns. We will continue to closely monitor cancellation rates over the coming months for signs of change.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 9 July 2015 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Socialismo y liberación trans

first_imgLos siguientes son comentarios seleccionados de los panelistas en un seminario web del 1 de abril: “Día de la Visibilidad Transgénero: una perspectiva socialista”, patrocinado por el Workers World Party/Partido Mundo Obrero, que se puede ver en Workers World YouTube: tinyurl.com/35944sht. Los camaradas del WWP Ezra Echo, Devin Cole y Romeo Channer se unieron a la Dra. Susan Stryker, autora de “Transgender History: Las raíces de la revolución actual”; Jupiter Peraza, una mujer trans indocumentada, activista, receptora de DACA y asociada al programa del Distrito Transgénero de San Francisco; e Indigo Lett, la secretaria y coordinadora de medios sociales de la organización activista transgénero de la Costa del Golfo STRIVE.Historia trans, fronteras transEzra: ¿Puedes explicar la historia de cómo se ha construido el movimiento trans en Estados Unidos y algunas de las luchas con las que se ha aliado el movimiento?Susan: En realidad, el movimiento trans se remonta en Estados Unidos a la década de 1890. Se formó un grupo en la ciudad de Nueva York en un lugar llamado Columbia Hall, que era una especie de bar, cervecería, lugar de actuación, lugar de encuentro, lugar de reunión de trabajadoras sexuales y hotel. Luego hubo un grupo llamado Cercle Hermaphroditos en Nueva York que estaba formado en su mayoría por personas trans femeninas, que se llamaban a sí mismas andróginas, y que decían que se unían para la defensa común contra las amargas persecuciones del mundo.El activismo trans empieza a despuntar realmente como movimiento activista de identidades minoritarias en los años 50 y 60. En los años 50 se publica una revista llamada Sociedad para la Igualdad en el Vestido. A principios de los años sesenta se empieza a ver gente que aboga por la posibilidad de cambiar los nombres en los documentos legales. Cuando se inician los movimientos sociales de la década de 1960, se ve a las personas trans organizándose en la política de la calle y participando en la acción directa radical contra la policía y el encarcelamiento.Hice una película “Screaming Queens: The Riot at Compton’s Cafetería”, sobre las mujeres trans del Tenderloin [barrio] de San Francisco, que pasaban la noche en la cafetería, una especie de zona para platicar para todo el barrio. La policía hacía redadas con regularidad, y una noche de agosto de 1966 -tres años antes del más famoso levantamiento de Stonewall- la policía entró y las reinas se defendieron. Como dice la mejor descripción contemporánea del suceso, esa noche se armó un caos general en el Tenderloin. El ´motín´ en la cafetería Compton, San Francisco, 1966.Creo que, sobre todo en el siglo XXI, después del 11 de septiembre de 2001, gran parte de la violencia a la que se han enfrentado las personas trans es violencia estatal que tiene que ver con las fronteras: el cruce de fronteras y la documentación de identidad y el acceso a los servicios sociales. Las personas trans, a menudo se nos engloba bajo el paraguas LGBT, pero en cierto modo, creo que los problemas de las personas trans tienen menos que ver con cuestiones de orientación sexual que con cuestiones de estatus de ciudadanía, de quién se cuenta como miembro del cuerpo político.Así que el activismo trans está muy alineado con el activismo pro-migrante, pro-asilo y pro-fronteras abiertas.Jupiter: En cuanto a cómo se ha construido la historia del movimiento trans en EE.UU., el movimiento trans ha dado una especie de salto a medida que se ha unido a movimientos y rostros de la historia. Por ejemplo, la Revolución Industrial llevó a la gente a los centros urbanos, en esta ubicación geográfica donde no eran conocidos por nadie más. Porque cuando vives en una ciudad pequeña, en un pueblo pequeño, todo el mundo te conoce; existe esta presión de tener que ser muy conservador y limitado en la forma en que te expresas. En la Revolución Industrial, la gente acudía a las ciudades y experimentaba con su expresión.Otro ejemplo: Tras el fin de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, vimos cómo aumentaba la atención internacional sobre Christine Jorgensen [una ex soldado estadounidense que se operó de afirmación sexual en Dinamarca en 1951]. Su participación en la guerra le dio una nueva luz y una nueva atención al movimiento trans. Y si avanzamos algunas décadas hasta la epidemia del SIDA, también vemos que las personas trans se ven afectadas y que los temas trans se plantean bajo una nueva luz.Pero históricamente, las cuestiones heteronormativas cisgénero se destacan más que las personas trans. Eso es algo con lo que creo que las personas trans siempre han luchado. Todo lo que sucede, realmente tenemos que llamar la atención sobre cómo afecta a las personas transgénero. Por ejemplo, dentro del movimiento Black Lives Matter, con el asesinato de mujeres trans negras, ahora estamos experimentando el grito de “¡Las vidas trans negras importan!”. Este es un ejemplo perfecto de cómo podemos poner de relieve las luchas trans en lo que está ocurriendo ahora mismo, con la brutalidad policial, por ejemplo.Diré que creo que estamos haciendo un trabajo increíble en la comprensión de los problemas y fortalezas trans y en llamar la atención sobre las luchas trans para hacer de esta una sociedad mejor para las personas trans.La lucha trans por el socialismoEzra: ¿Por qué es fundamental luchar por el socialismo para asegurar la liberación trans?Romeo: Quizá un punto muy obvio es que la atención de salud es un derecho humano, y el acceso a la atención de salud es especialmente necesario y urgente para las personas trans. Es una de las mayores batallas por las que luchan las personas trans en todo el mundo. Si vives en un país socialista, eso proporciona asistencia de salud a toda su población.Devin: No puede haber socialismo sin liberación trans, y no puede haber liberación trans sin socialismo. El capitalismo y el imperialismo están diseñados y creados para dividir a la gente, incluso por género, para construir la opresión sobre el género.Aunque hay gente que cree que la transexualidad no es tan importante en la lucha por el socialismo, ¡es fundamental! El camarada Leslie Feinberg, miembro del Partido Mundo Obrero [Workers World Party] desde hace más de 40 años, expuso intrincada y meticulosamente la conexión de que la opresión de género surgió como parte de la opresión de clase, en su análisis histórico marxista, “Guerreros transgénero”. La lucha por el socialismo es la lucha por la liberación trans, y viceversa.Susan: Para lograr realmente una sociedad justa, habitable y sostenible que trate a todo el mundo con equidad -donde todo el mundo tenga lo suficiente y nadie tenga demasiado- tenemos que pensar en Estados Unidos en particular, en la dimensión colonial de los colonos, en el hecho de que Estados Unidos está construido sobre mano de obra robada y tierra robada. Para mí, el socialismo es simplemente la creencia, la convicción, de que se puede, de hecho, tener un orden social justo. Y si un sistema de gobierno no aborda eso, sigue siendo colonialismo de colonos.Indigo: Para mí, el socialismo es comprender lo malo que es el capitalismo. Para la gente de la clase trabajadora, tenemos que entender el punto económico, obviamente, y el punto sobre el racismo, pero también tenemos que entender el punto internacional – entender el papel de Estados Unidos como país y cómo eso afecta a otras personas en otros países. Históricamente hay comunidades de terceras personas en todas partes, y se ven afectadas por el colonialismo y el capitalismo.Luego, especialmente el año pasado con la pandemia, eso realmente demostró que necesitamos tanto: atención sanitaria, educación y tantas otras cosas. Eso nos lleva obviamente al socialismo. Con la administración que tenemos ahora, básicamente van a intentar devolvernos a donde estaban los Estados Unidos antes de la pandemia, ¡que seguía siendo un lugar muy terrible! Así que creo que para nosotros, es sólo un constante, constante desaprendizaje de nuestros propios comportamientos tóxicos, para seguir aprendiendo más sobre nosotros mismos y empujar hacia el socialismo de una manera que todos podamos sentirnos bienvenidos y cómodos y vivos.Romeo: Sólo quiero añadir que personalmente no me sentiré liberado si las hormonas que tomo se fabrican en tierras palestinas robadas, que es de donde procede gran parte de la terapia de sustitución hormonal. Este es sólo uno de los muchos ejemplos de cómo todas estas luchas en el mundo están materialmente vinculadas. No sólo en la forma en que tenemos que mirar a las estructuras y hacer frente a las estructuras, sino en la conexión física material real que la globalización y el capitalismo han unido. Nuestro género sigue siendo controlado y vigilado en gran medida por estos sistemas de capitalismo e imperialismo.

TCU professors call attention to disability, diversity

first_imgTwitter Students debut performances of drag personas as part of unique new course Linkedin Facebook Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals week printMany professors challenge their students to walk a mile in their peer’s shoes. Not many challenge them to wheel a mile in their peer’s chairs.Two professors in different departments are raising awareness about handicap access on campus through class assignments.Wheelchair access is dear to Tamie Morgan, professor of professional practice from the school of geology, energy and the environment.“I have a 28-year-old son who uses a wheelchair, so this has been something that has affected our family from the day he was born,” Morgan said.Morgan said this inspired her to introduce a project. Her students must create a map in Google Earth that shows the wheelchair-accessible routes to landmarks on campus.“It really just shows the students that for some people, getting around can be complicated. If you are in a wheelchair, you can’t cut through campus in ways that everyone else does,” Morgan said. “It impacts almost everything about your life.”The campus route is viewable on Google Maps.Linda Moore, professor from the department of social work, teaches the class social work and diversity. For the last 15 years, Moore has required her students to navigate campus in a wheelchair.“I think most of the students really haven’t gotten a sense of what it means to have a disability that makes it difficult to get around physically,” Moore said.Moore also uses the wheelchairs to teach about socioeconomic diversity.“It is one that you would get if you were poor,” Moore said. “So they get to see about disability but they also get to see about poverty and some of the issues related to that.”She said that students completing the project are often yelled at.“I’ve had people cursed at almost every year,” Moore said.Moore and Morgan agreed these projects help people empathize with their peers.“They experience the vulnerability. Having to look up to people when they talk – the lack of eye contact,” Moore said.Students in both classes said they have learned from the projects.“It was cool to see how much Professor Morgan cared about it. It is something you don’t think of every day,” TCU alum Freese Roberts said.Emily Freed, a senior who took Moore’s class, said, “I have always taken my physical abilities for granted, but this exercise really put everything into perspective.”“I remember trying to push myself up onto the sidewalk and the wheel got caught between the road and sidewalk. I almost fell flat on my face if I hadn’t stood up as the wheel chair was falling over,” Freed said.Marsha Ramsey, the director for the Center for Academic Services, said the construction on campus is helping to make TCU more inclusive for individuals with mobility issues.“All of the construction we are having is certainly helping bring a more universal design,” Ramsey said. “We are moving towards making campus as free of barriers as possible.”To test your knowledge of disability and TCU, take this online quiz.

RSF delivers Jeffrey Sterling’s petition to the White House

first_imgNews Follow the news on United States NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say June 3, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Jeffrey Sterling was convicted under the Espionage Act for merely communicating with New York Times journalist James Risen. He’s now serving a 3.5-year prison sentence in a federal correctional facility in Colorado.Before delivering the petition to the White House, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) co-sponsored a press conference at the National Press Club for Jeffrey’s wife Holly. She thanked the over 150,000 people who signed the petition to pardon her husband.Speaking on behalf of RSF was US Director Delphine Halgand: “as an organization that defends freedom of information, we are extremely concerned by the precedent set in the United States’ government’s case against Jeffrey Sterling. How is it possible that proving the mere existence of contact between a former CIA operative and a journalist is sufficient to convict someone of espionage?”Other speakers included prominent activist, author and professor Dr. Cornel West, former CIA analyst and whistleblower John Kiriakou, lawyer and whistleblower Jesselyn Radack, and Senior Director of Strategy for Free Press Tim Karr. Kiriakou, who served time in prison for leaking information on the CIA’s torture program, said Jeffrey “did exactly what he was supposed to do when he encountered a program of waste, fraud, abuse, or illegality.” The point of Jeffrey’s harsh 3.5 year sentence was “to utterly ruin him…to demonize him…and frighten any other would-be whistleblowers,” said Kiriakou.During Jeffrey’s trial, the Department of Justice was unable to present any direct evidence proving that he divulged classified information to Risen. They relied on circumstantial evidence — emails and telephone conversations — to try to make a case to a jury who would likely favor his conviction.Because Jeffrey utilized proper channels and informed the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence of his concern for the safety of the American people, he is considered a whistleblower.Last December RSF, RootsAction and ExposeFacts led a coalition of organizations in support of a petition for his pardon on change.org and on RootsAction.org. The Bill of Rights Defense Committee / Defending Dissent Foundation, Center for Media and Democracy, Freedom of the Press Foundation, The Nation magazine, Restore the Fourth and Free Press are also supporting the petition. The White House acknowledged receipt of the 150,000 signatures yesterday.To support Holly Sterling’s request to pardon her husband, sign the petition at change.org/pardonforjeffrey or at http://rootsaction.org/take-action/1056-tell-the-president-to-pardon-cia-whistleblower-jeffrey-sterling.

Protecting of the offices of newspapers and TV stations is a minimum obligation that must be satisfied without delay.”Ahmed Abosnina, the Benghazi-based correspondent of privately-owned Al-Nabaa TV, was attacked yesterday morning while driving to Benghazi airport in the TV station’s vehicle. Two men stopped him, insulted him and hit him with steel bars. Fortunately, he managed to escape.Abosnina has received repeated threats on his Facebook account because of his work for Al-Nabaa and, previously, for satellite TV stations Al-Jazeera and Libya Al-Ahrar.Two weeks ago, on 4 September, Al-Wataniya TV chief Tareq Al-Houni and two of his journalists were insulted and hit by members of a local militia who were supposed to be providing security at the TV station’s headquarters in Tripoli during a visit by parliamentarian Mohamed Younes Al-Toumi.The militiamen insulted and attacked Toumi before turning on the three journalists. Houni filed a complaint about the violence but no action has been taken and the militiamen are still occupying Al-Wataniya’s headquarters.Al-Wataniya’s employees went on strike for several days in April in an attempt to get the government to send members of the regular armed forces to guard the station instead of this militia, which has been the station’s self-appointed protector ever since Gaddafi’s overthrow Well-known Libyan journalist missing since his arrest Follow the news on Libya News June 24, 2020 Find out more Six imprisoned journalists to finally appear in court in Istanbul September 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 More attacks on journalists by still powerful militiascenter_img to go further On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom February 23, 2021 Find out more LibyaMiddle East – North Africa LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Organisation News RSF_en Newslast_img read more

The suspect subsequently stole items from the store and he may be linked to other thefts throughout Southern California. The case was assigned to Detective T. Blanchard and Officer A. Torres, who completed a comprehensive follow-up investigation. Detective Blanchard and Officer Torres identified the suspect and released a want flyer to their PPD coworkers. On July 27, Suspect Bobadilla was arrested by Officers M. Calderon and C. Prestwich while on routine patrol.On July 30 at 8:20 p.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the area of Morton and Hammond regarding a shooting. On arrival, officers located a gunshot victim (male Black, 50s). The victim was uncooperative and did not provide much information to the investigating officers. The victim was transported to HMH. While PPD officers were at the hospital, a second victim (male Black, 50s) arrived in a private vehicle, also suffering from a GSW. The second victim only provided limited information about the shooting. Both victims are in stable condition. Our investigation is ongoingOn July 31 at about 7:00 a.m., Pasadena Police officers responded to the 700 block of South Orange Grove Boulevard regarding a man with a gun. While driving to the location, officers learned the suspect (male White, 20s) was pointing a semi-automatic pistol at innocent bystanders as he walked along Orange Grove Boulevard. On arrival, PPD officers were initially unable to locate the suspect; however, he was later located hiding in the bushes in the 300 block of Markham Place. Officers immediately contained the area and attempted to negotiate with the suspect; however, he (the suspect) refused to surrender. Officers could clearly see the suspect was armed with a pistol, which created a dangerous situation for the first responders and the neighbors. Using the department’s Bear-Cat Rescue Vehicle, some neighbors were evacuated out of an abundance of caution. PPD officers continued to talk with the suspect and at the same time, established emergency response teams (ERT) who were equipped with less-lethal devices. The ERT team approached the suspect’s location and deployed a Canine Team. The suspect was taken into custody without further incident. Fortunately, no gunshots were fired. Pasadena Police officers recovered a fully loaded semi-automatic pistol and following a field show up, the suspect was positively identified (Jordan Creger, male White, 26). Creger was later transported to a local hospital for medical evaluation.Clearly, Pasadena Police officers involved in this incident were able to avoid a lethal encounter with Creger. Their courage, sound decision-making, and ability to de-escalate the situation led to a safe outcome for all concerned. Top of the News Your email address will not be published.
