This does not leave them with much room to organize IPL 2020 in India. According to the BCCI official, the season if it gets hosted will move to either UAE or SriLanka with UAE being the frontrunner.“The race is between UAE and Sri Lanka and we will need to decide on where we host the league depending on the situation there with regards to the coronavirus pandemic. Logistics also need to be looked into, so we will decide soon,” he added.BCCI will suffer a huge loss of Rs 4,000 crore should it be forced to cancel the cash-rich league. Twice in past board has taken the IPL editions to offshore venues. In 2009, the complete tournament was played in South Africa while in 2014, the first 20 matches were played in UAE. Since UAE has hosted IPL in past, it remains the front-runner.

He repeatedly recited a phrase that he had heard during his visit: “If you come to the Holy Land for two weeks, you think you understand the situation. If you come for two years, you understand that you know nothing about the situation.”I’m glad the Archbishop visited Hebron and the tomb of Abraham. I wonder, however, how he felt walking under the protective chicken wire or making his way through the turnstile. I wonder, too, whether he walked the block to Shuhada Street and its Jersey wall.There is a time for bridge-building. There is, more urgently, a time for tearing down the walls. And there is a time for speaking truth and condemning injustice. The Church should be involved in all three tasks. What is “daft” is its not doing so. What is “daft” is being careful about what we say in the face of injustice.

Dixon shakes off UCLA rumors prior to Big 12 opener against Baylor

He led UCLA to four NCAA Tournaments and three Sweet Sixteen appearances in 5.5 seasons before being released Monday following a 7-6 start to open the season.“I grew up in it so that was my first entry into basketball because UCLA was so good when I was a little kid and then the Lakers picked up after that,” said Dixon. “In my mind, that’s where basketball started, watching those games.”Ultimately, Dixon put the rumors of his departure to the West Coast to rest.“I’m so happy here and thankful for the situation I have with the best A.D. and the best chancellor, plus our family is happy so why would I be thinking about anything else,” he said. “Our players were joking about it, so I told them they’re stuck with me, just to get that out of the way.”Senior point guard and the Diamond Head Classic’s Most Oustanding Player Alex Robinson’s attitude about the reports reflected that the talk had been addressed.“We’re cool and focused on winning this year, so whatever situation that is, it’s none of our business,” said Robinson. “We have to handle what we can handle. That’s what we’re focused on.”What the Horned Frogs can handle is their 3 p.m. Saturday showdown with Baylor, a team with experience similar to TCU entering conference play. Baylor returned four players this season who had played under head coach Scott Drew compared to TCU’s five under Dixon.“They’re playing better, which is a result of some new guys getting more minutes and also [guard Mario] Kegler was out as well,” said Dixon. “In a lot of ways, they’ve been in our position this season with a lot of guys out, but they’re playing better with the win against Arizona and with a game they should’ve won against Stephen F. Austin.”With Horned Frog center Yuat Alok missing his third-straight game with a hand injury, TCU will deploy smaller lineups at a higher frequency with both RJ Nembhard and Kaden Archie likely to see some time at forward next to Kouat Noi, JD Miller or Kevin Samuel in the frontcourt.“I feel like we’re really deep and everyone knew that coming into the season, but as you saw in Hawaii, a lot of our new guys are playing better, so I’m not too worried about what they’ll do against Baylor,” said Robinson. “I think they will be prepared and ready.”Dixon noted the edge that seems to come with every TCU vs. Baylor game, regardless of sport, since he’s returned to campus as a primary factor in TCU’s focus for Saturday.“Baylor has a certain, as I’ve come to know in the last two years here, it’s more of a rivalry than I remember it being back in the day because every game was a rivalry game when I was here,” said Dixon. “Baylor means something too.” Garrett is a Journalism and Sports Broadcasting double major.

Silvio Berlusconi saves one of his TV channels by decree in flagrant example of conflict of interest

first_img Follow the news on Italy January 29, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Silvio Berlusconi saves one of his TV channels by decree in flagrant example of conflict of interest News ItalyEurope – Central Asia November 19, 2020 Find out more News Receive email alerts ItalyEurope – Central Asia On 28 January, the senate approved a decree allowing the TV channelRetequattro to continue terrestrial broadcasting. Retequattro is part of theMediaset group, which is owned by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, and thedecree will therefore allow Berlusconi to maintain ownership of all three ofhis TV channels, contrary to a ruling by the constitutional court. The lowerhouse will consider the decree on 27 February.______Reporters Without Borders has accused Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, of taking a step that was “a flagrant and shocking example of conflict of interest in the media.”Berlusconi, who is both chief executive and owner of a media empire, signed a decree on 23 December reprieving one of his television channels, which was set to transfer to satellite by the end of the year.The switch for Retequattro would have led to significant loss in its market value. The channel, part of Berlusconi’s Mediaset group, can now continue as a terrestrial channel until 30 April 2004, when the telecommunications authority is due to make a decision.”This step is a flagrant and shocking example of Silvio Berlusconi’s conflict of interest in the media,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of Reporters Without Borders. “It is not a question of some kind of economic decision. We respond with dismay to this autocratic gesture and its consequences for pluralism of news and information in Italy,” he added.Berlusconi’s decree, which has been passed by the cabinet, follows Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi’s refusal to sign a new broadcast media law. The president considered that the law adopted by parliament on 2 December contained provisions that ran contrary to the Constitution.The “Gasparri” law, the purpose of which was to prepare the ground for digital terrestrial television, was also set to lift a ban on cross-ownership of media and would allow one person to own more than two national broadcasting stations.Berlusconi would thus be able to retain ownership of his three national channels (Italia 1, Canale 5 and Retequattro). The Consitutional Court had ordered on 20 November 2002 that Retequattro should switch to satellite on 1 January 2004, to ensure conformity with the law on competition.”The president’s message, although it was exceptional, was clearly not understood,” added Ménard. “Less than a week later the prime minister decides to sign a document himself that protects his private interests.”Reporters Without Borders recalled that the draft law on conflicts of interest has yet to be approved by the Senate. If the text of the law says that management of profit-making company is incompatible with a government post, there is no conflict of interest if the management is in the hands of a third party. In fact Berlusconi’s name does not appear on any management list of companies he owns, where the running of the company is in the hands of a friend or family member. In this case, the question of conflict of interest, does not arise.In a report entitled “Conflict of interest in the media: The Italian Anomaly”, published in April 2003, Reporters Without Borders analysed the consequences of Berlusconi’s conflicts of interest on the pluralism of news and information in Italy, relegated to 53rd on the world press freedom ranking in 2003. to go further Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information Organisation Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union News RSF and 60 other organisations call for an EU anti-SLAPP directive November 23, 2020 Find out more December 2, 2020 Find out more On eve of the G20 Riyadh summit, RSF calls for public support to secure the release of jailed journalists in Saudi Arabia RSF_en last_img read more

Government continues to harass cyber-feminists in attempt to silence them

first_img RSF_en News News February 25, 2021 Find out more June 9, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders urges the Iranian authorities to stop its harassment of cyber-feminists after two more were summoned to a Tehran court for questioning about articles posted on women’s rights websites, and online journalist Sussan Tahmasebi was banned from leaving the country without being given any reason.“The way the government hounds these women shows how much it fears their criticism,” Reporters Without Borders said. “These cyber-feminists are just using their right to free expression in order to condemn the situation of women. Thanks to their campaigning, a bill that would facilitate polygamy was challenged at the start of September. This shows the importance of their work.”Tahmasebi, who is under police surveillance, went today to the Tehran revolutionary court in response to a summons for questioning about her activities. On 26 October, her passport was seized at Imam Khomeini airport in south Tehran. She was questioned by security agents who confiscated CDs, books, manuscripts and texts calling for peace in Iran. Her computer was also inspected.In an interview for the online magazine Tagir Bary Barbary (“Change for Equality” – http://we-change.org/), Tahmasebi said: “This is the fourth time I have been prevented from leaving the country on various pretexts. Despite my insistence, no one explained the reason for the decision or said why I had been summoned to the revolutionary court.”On leaving the court today, she told Reporters Without Borders: “This harassment is being done with the aim of making us shut up. Nonetheless, we will not stop demanding equality. Women now have an important place in Iranian society and the authorities will be forced to listen to us.”One of the promoters of the campaign for “One Million Signatures Demanding Changes to Discriminatory Laws” that was launched online in 2005, Tahmasebi edits the English-language version of the Tagir Bary Barbary website. The police searched her home on 2 May.The two other cyber-feminists to be summoned to the Tehran revolutionary court to explain what they have been posting online were Nahid Keshavarz and Mahboubeh Hosseinzadeh, who write for Tagir Bary Barbary and Zanestan (“Women’s City” – http://herlandmag.net/).

Demonstrators march to Rochester Public Safety Building to protest death of Daniel Prude

first_imgMichael M. Santiago/Getty ImagesBy JOSHUA HOYOS, IVAN PEREIRA and MARC NATHANSON, ABC News(ROCHESTER, N.Y.) — Rochester, New York police reported no arrests Sunday night after demonstrators protesting the death of Daniel Prude descended on the city’s Public Safety Building, a day after nearby demonstrations resulted in numerous clashes between protesters and police.“The Rochester Police Department would like to thank our local and state law enforcement partners for their assistance and a special thanks to Dr. Myra Brown and a group of community elders for keeping the protest safe and allowing everyone’s voice to be heard,” the department posted to social media following Sunday night’s demonstration.Police said on Sunday evening that about 1,000 people had come out for the fifth day of protests against Prude’s death at the hands of Rochester police.Sunday’s demonstration came hours after Mayor Lovely Warren and the city’s police chief La’Ron Singletary called for calm following contentious protests on Saturday.In a new tack, police on Sunday night allowed protesters to march up to the Public Safety Building (PSB), home to the Rochester Police Department, after previously barricading demonstrators about a quarter mile up the road, where clashes ensued between protesters and police.Singletary said earlier Sunday that there was credible information that outside agitators want to destroy the PSB, but country legislator Rachel Barnhart, who was injured while attending Saturday night’s protests, told ABC News she thought Saturday’s protests only became violent after demonstrators encountered police at the barricade and suggested that allowing protesters to march to the PSB would curtail the violence.On Sunday evening, a group of church elders boarded buses near City Hall to travel to the PSB in order to act as a buffer between protesters and the police in a move that city officials hoped would keep the protests peaceful.“Let’s work together to keep everyone safe!” the police department tweeted Sunday evening, not long before demonstrators descended on the building.Warren’s pleas for peaceful demonstrations came after police used pepper spray and tear gas to disperse a crowd of over 1,200 people Saturday night. She stood by Singletary and the police department and commended them for their restraint during the last couple nights of protest, which authorities said included agitators from out of state.“People from outside of the city like Alaska and Massachusetts have been arrested,” Singletary said.The protests stem from last week’s release of body camera footage showing the March 23 incident involving Rochester police officers and Prude, 41. Prude’s brother Joe called 911 to get help, saying Daniel was having a mental health emergency.In the video, which was first reported by the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, officers approach Prude, who is naked, and Prude initially complies with the officers’ orders. Prude is subsequently seen shouting and spitting, which prompts officers to place a spit bag over his head.The officers are seen pinning Prude to the ground while the bag is still on his head, and he eventually goes lifeless. Prude died in the hospital a week later.Seven Rochester officers have been suspended with pay as New York State Attorney General Letitia James’ office investigates the incident, which is part of New York state’s protocol anytime someone dies in police custody. On Saturday, James announced she would empanel a grand jury to investigate Prude’s death.Protests that have taken place in the city since the news broke had become increasingly contentious between those involved and the police. Officers say they’ve been struck by bottles and rocks and have had to use pepper spray, tear gas and other weapons to disperse crowds during the demonstrations, including the one on Saturday night.Three officers were treated for injuries related to fireworks Saturday and nine people were arrested after some in the crowd appeared to set off fireworks, according to the authorities.At the same time, Warren acknowledged that the department and city should have done more to protect Prude.“We have to own the fact that in that moment, we did not do that,” she said.The mayor revealed that she first saw the body camera footage last month but could not take any direct action because of the investigation by the attorney general. She defended Singletary and his actions thus far in the investigation, saying that he’s done everything by the book and has not impeded or covered up the case.“I wholeheartedly believe RPD Chief Singletary can lead us through this time,” she said.In the meantime, Warren and Singletary said the city is already working to change the way the city responds to mental health emergency calls. The city will double the availability of mental health professionals and the police will review its measures in place for handling such emergencies, according to the mayor and chief.“Certain calls shouldn’t be handled by police,” Singletary said.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
