Four media workers, three of them working for the newspaper Uthayan, have been killed since the start of the year in this town which is held by government troops. Members of the EPDP are again suspects in some of these attacks.All the suspects in the Nimalarajan case, members of the EPDP, were released in 2003, by a court in Vavuniya in the north of the country. Moreover the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) never managed to interview one of the suspects, Sebastianpillai Ramesh, better known as “Napoleon”. Police never seriously made use of the physical evidence, including cartridge cases and fingerprints.

first_img June 8, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Reporters Without Borders welcomes a Dubai appeal court’s decision on 8 November to overturn the convictions of the former editor of the English-language Khaleej Times, Shimba Kassiril Ganjadahran, and one of his reporters, Mohsen Rashed, on charges of libel. The two journalists had been sentenced on 24 September to two months in prison for a story about a Dubai woman’s lawsuit against her husband that led to his imprisonment.Their acquittal comes a few weeks after the ruler of Dubai said journalists should not be imprisoned because of their work. His statement had the immediate force of law.“The release of the Khaleej Times journalists confirms the positive evolution seen in the press freedom situation in Dubai during the past two years,” Reporters Without Borders said. “However, the press law still needs revision and we urge the government to include the decriminalization of press offences in the bill currently being considered. This reform, the first of its kind in the Gulf, should also apply to the electronic media.”Rashed told Reporters Without Borders that the ruler of Dubai’s statement had influenced the appeal court’s decision. He added that he thought the decree would be incorporated into the new press law.Meanwhile, in a libel case in the nearby emirate of Ras Al Khaima, a criminal court has passed a suspended sentence of a year in prison and a fine of 50,000 dirhams (10,000 euros) on the owner of the website, Mohamed Al-Shehhi, although the plaintiff withdrew his complaint on 30 October.The website has been forced to close for good under article 16 of the electronic press law. This was the sixth complaint to be brought against since 1 August. All these prosecutions have been widely criticised by bloggers and website owners, who are calling for the law governing websites to be brought into line with the print media law.The main problem for press freedom continues to be the self-censorship practised by most newspapers, which eschew any criticism of the government in order to avoid prosecution.

The ice chest would not fit in the bedpan so I took it to the garbage can. Later, in the day, I reached for the mop and, there hanging on, was a mouse pad rendering the mop useless.Now, I’m going to send letter to pest control and ask for compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the mousetrap and for the cost of the ice chest and the mop. I’m also starting at petition to stop the production of better mousetraps. Those white, shiny, sticky, never-let-loose mouse pads are cruel and unusual punishment, even for a mouse.

Atlas and Rosa Green host a hog… read more Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Next UpI kicked off my shoes, grabbed a book and sat down at the table to eat and read. On getting up, I stepped on one of those white, slick-shiny pads on the floor. When I tried to step off, the ball of my foot and my five toes were stuck. I tried to shake the pad off my foot but it wouldn’t shake loose. I sat down to pull the pad off but it was glued to me foot. I stood back up and shook my foot and the pad flapped and flapped but stayed stuck on my toes.After and hour of trying to remove the mousetrap from my toes, I gave up on the pliers, the Vaseline, the WD-40, cooking oil and olive oil. I got the scissors and trimmed the pad right next to where it was stuck on my foot so I could walk without flapping. Then I asked the Lord for his guidance. I could not go around for the rest of my life with a mousetrap stuck to my foot. I wouldn’t be able to wear shoes. My foot would get cold. I would look silly and people might laugh. The Lord does answers prayers. I had a revelation.I went to the bathroom, filled an enamel bedpan – an antique of sorts – with steaming hot water and a whole bottle of liquid soap and floated a bar of Ivory. I sat there in the bathroom on the toilet with my foot soaking in the water until after midnight. That’s when I was set free. I was free at last! Book Nook to reopen Whoever said “Build a better mousetrap and the world with beat a path to your door,” should have kept his trap shut.There’s no way to build a “better” mousetrap than the one that’s baited with cheese so, when the hungry little mouse comes sniffing along, the trap snaps and you’ve “caught” the rat.But, in today’s world inventors are finding was to build a better mousetrap. My apologies to the PETA people but I do not like rats, not even tiny little mice. So, when I saw something out of the corner of my eye that I thought might be a mouse, I called pest control fully expecting the exterminator to put out some bait that would remedy the situation. However, when I got home that night, I noticed white, slick-shiny pieces of cardboard in the broom closet, the pantry and at several places around the house. But I didn’t have time to give much thought to what I saw. My mind was on the bacon and tomato sandwich I was craving for supper.

first_img Previous Article Next Article NetworkOn 1 Sep 2001 in Personnel Today This month’s networkFunding changes bring opportunities The change from Training and Enterprise Councils to Learning and SkillsCouncils must not be ignored by employers. It means that, for the first time,businesses can speak directly to regional training bodies. As you are probably aware, the new LSCs, which have replaced Tecs, are nowformulating their plans in local areas. This new set-up allows employers todiscuss their training needs with LSCs and tell the LSCs what they want fromlocal training providers. What you may not know is that there is also a myriad of changes in thefinancial systems, including the standardising of the funding rate in some ofthe funding streams, which will affect all training providers. The changes should mean wider and more flexible training provision, andcould mean greater opportunity for private training companies – and evenemployers themselves – to become training providers. Employers are encouraged to talk to their local LSC to make sure theirvoices are heard and they have “real” input into the provision beingplanned to make sure it meets their needs and the needs of other employers. Cath Whelan Chief executive, Funding Finders Sidestep IT skills crisis The IT industry is suffering from a skills shortage because it simply isn’tattracting enough people from diverse backgrounds, according to a recent surveyby So, in the current turbulent business climate, why aren’tcompanies responding? On the whole, it is because the board still isn’t buying into the importanceof developing IT professionals. Providing appropriate learning opportunitiesmust become a priority for companies and be driven from the top. And thatdoesn’t mean signing away the responsibility to an external training company,it means investing the time and resources internally. Doing this enables companies to recruit people from diverse backgrounds andre-train them to fulfil the exact job requirements. And in today’s businessenvironment, “exact job requirements” are rarely as straightforwardas they seem. For example, how can companies be closely aligned to verticalmarkets if they have little or no knowledge of those markets? Market expertise and business awareness have become essential components ofan IT manager’s portfolio. Devised and run in-house, a learning programme canfill the gap between an individual’s skillset and the demands of the job rolefar more thoroughly than an external training course. However, there will always be a need for companies to react quickly to marketdemands. For example, specialists with e-business skills tend to be chased fromcompany to company, and no amount of planning or investment into internaltraining can support this unpredictable need. There is inevitably a requirementfor buying in skills at a higher rate as new opportunities arise. Despite these problems, investing in people in this way can only help theimage of IT as a potential career. For some people IT is perceived to havelimited prospects, because traditionally the role is largely operational. Roger Smith             Head of Marlborough Training Academy Comments are closed.

first_imgOxford University is planing to open a new college for the first time in 30 years, in a bid to keep pace with Ivy League competitors. According to a provisional strategic plan, over the next five years the university will build 1,000 new rooms for graduate students and “at least one new graduate college”.If created, this college would be the first established since 1990, when Kellogg College was opened for graduate students.The proposals are yet to be approved by the university’s dons, but have been accepted by Oxford’s governing body. According to these plans, the postgraduate population would increase by 850 students over the next five years, while an additional 200 undergraduate places would be created. According to Nick Hillman, the director of the Higher Education Policy institute, this proposed increase in post-graduate places is financially motivated.He said: “Oxford and Cambridge say they lose money on every undergraduate whereas for post graduates you can charge the full market rate and more.“Oxford doesn’t compare itself to other institutions in the UK, it compares itself to other institutions around the world such as Ivy League which have more graduates than undergraduates.”While fees for undergraduates at Oxford are capped at the national limit of £9,250 per annum, the university claims that the real cost of educating the average Oxford undergraduate student is almost £16,000 thanks to the university’s tutorial model. In relation to these plans, New College’s bursar, David Palfreyman, commented on the fact that Ivy League competitors are generally smaller than Oxford and Cambridge at undergraduate level. He said that being in order for Oxford to be  “a world class university and a super research university à la Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Princeton” it requires a larger population of postgraduate students to carry out said research.The plans also aim to “set ambitious targets” to “reduce by 2023 gaps in attainment by gender, ethnic origin and socio-economic background”.They intend to create a substantial increase in the number of undergraduates from groups which are poorly represented at the university.A spokesperson for the university said the plans are being examined and discussed, adding: “The University will comment more fully when its plan has been widely reviewed and formally adopted.”last_img read more
