The next morning, the moderator of the event, Sarah Maslin Nir, was on a talk show on union-busting Spectrum News, complaining about the “missed opportunity” to discuss issues surrounding the subway. And the night before, when she announced from the stage that the event was being cancelled, Nir complained, “My First Amendment rights are being violated.”As a New York Times reporter, Nir is unlikely to perceive the true character of what happened that night: the boiling mass anger about the oppressive conditions underground — which, in addition to inaccessibility, include the subways’ constant fare hikes, crumbling infrastructure and racist cop harassment of Black and Brown riders — reached a point where it had to explode above ground.This eruption prevented the hated MTA from using a genteel $30-a-head museum forum — complete with onstage couch and glasses of wine poured by the moderator — to get a public-relations makeover.The City Museum protest was not the only disruption that night. Across town, the Rent Guidelines Board meeting was also disrupted by tenants opposing rent increases. With signs declaring, “We are tenants, not ATMs,” protesters crashed the gathering, at which the board voted for an increase in rent-stabilized apartments. An online report of the meeting described the tenants’ intervention as the “deafening sound that had enveloped the Cooper Union Hall.”Subways in dismal shapeThe demand for transit accessibility, expressed recently by lawsuits and protests that 75 percent of subway stations lack elevators, has been amplified by the overall shockingly dismal state of the subway, which is punishing the city’s working class with maddeningly constant delays.In addition to stations either not having elevators or having elevators that break down or are filthy, some of the stations require wheelchair users to ride along a dangerously narrow platform edge between a wall and the tracks. At the Broadway/Lafayette station, this is required three times — a total of six if a rider makes a round trip.The rampant delays that affect all riders are inspiring neighborhood-specific Facebook pages, some of which have thousands of members sign up in a matter of days.On April 25, the morning before the people’s shutdown, malfunctions on the 2 and 5 lines prevented Bronx subway users from getting to work in Manhattan during rush hour. That same day, the online New York City Patch reported: “Signal problems at the City Hall station delayed the N, R, Q and W lines; problems at the 9th Avenue station in Brooklyn delayed the D line; and problems at Metropolitan Avenue delayed the G line.”In fact, the 6 train — the closest line to the museum where the phony forum was scheduled to take place — was shut down due to electrical problems mere minutes before the start of the program. After the program started, people were still arriving late, frustrated and angry, from yet another subway delay.Knowing the mass hatred for the MTA, organizers of the event attempted to prevent the protest, which was called jointly by The People’s MTA, Rise and Resist, and the anti-police-brutality group Why Accountability. Two days before the event, the moderator sent this private Facebook message to The People’s MTA:“This is Sarah Maslin Nir, the reporter from the Times who is hosting the Lhota talk this week. I love that you are organizing around it! Civic engagement is where it’s at! I was wondering if we could speak on the phone, perhaps there might be a better way to be heard. We could hold a listening session during the reception, or perhaps your group could bring fliers with info to be distributed afterwards? I am a firm believer in everyone’s 1st amendment rights, so if you want to protest that’s cool, but maybe there is a way to include these issues so you’d get a better platform?”Recognizing this as a ploy to prevent a protest from interrupting her program, organizers ignored it and went ahead with their plans. This included disrupting the program right at the start by unfurling a banner with the words “Our subways need elevators, not racist Broken Windows Policing!”Mayor’s solution? More copsThe slogan referred to Mayor de Blasio’s decision two weeks earlier to expand the bogus New York Police Department program known as “Neighborhood Policing” into the subway. “Broken Windows Policing” is the phrase used by the NYPD to describe its racist policing approach.De Blasio’s announcement came right on the heels of the NYPD assassination of Saheed Vassell in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood.Community activists have long described the Neighborhood Policing program, or Community Policing as it is also known, as a public relations cover for the true police program of racist harassment, occupation and killings. Activists in the Coalition to End Broken Windows have also described how its community meetings are used by cops to gather intelligence on African-American and Latinx residents.For his part, de Blasio has solidarized himself with the police’s racist harassment of riders who can’t afford $2.75, saying that “fare-beating” is “not an economic issue” — that people who jump turnstiles “have money in their pockets.”The banner was unfurled by People’s MTA leaders Mary Kaessinger and Teresa Gutierrez. Kaessinger, who uses a wheelchair, began the disruption with a mic check, saying, “We are here today because the subways belong to the people!”The host then offered the microphone to the two in a phony attempt to include the protesters in the “discussion.” Knowing this would give credibility to whatever self-serving lies and justifications the MTA board members would uttered later, the protesters rejected this and addressed the crowd directly.“We can’t afford to take cabs! This is a crisis!” said Gutierrez.“We can’t be peaceful about this! We have to fight — we go to board meetings every month, and nothing happens. They don’t listen to us!”After that, Nir’s many attempts to regain control of the meeting were drowned out by more shouting from the crowd, as protesters stood up, one by one, with signs that read “Elevators NOW,” “Stop the Racist Harassment of Black and Brown Riders” and “Stop the Delays.” When she got the nod from Lhota, Nir ended the meeting, informing all attendees that the museum would refund the $20­ to $30 they had paid to get in.Protesters went outside for a celebratory demonstration. Kaessinger congratulated the crowd, stating, “I think we got our point across!” Gutierrez added, “It was right to disrupt! If they don’t give us any peace on the subway, we’re not going to give them peace anywhere!”last_img read more

first_img Organisation December 26, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Imprisoned journalist awaits decision on his appeal BurundiAfrica to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders reiterates its support for imprisoned Burundian journalist Hassan Ruvakuki in the run-up to his appeal verdict, as did the head of French External Broadcasting, Marie-Christine Saragosse, during a visit to Burundi last week.A reporter for Radio France Internationale’s Swahili service and Bonesha FM, a local station, Ruvakuki has been detained for nearly 13 months. A court in the central city of Gitega is due to issue a decision on his appeal by 8 January. He was sentenced to life imprisonment last June on a charge of terrorism for contacting Burundian rebels. The hearings in his appeal were held in October and November. The defence has asked for his conviction to be overturned while prosecutors want the sentence upheld.“Burundi’s Hassan Ruvakuki is one of the 193 journalists who, according to the annual roundup our organization published last week, are currently imprisoned worldwide in connection with their work – a figure that has never been so high,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“The Ruvakuki case has dragged on for too long and has done the country’s image enough damage already. I am convinced that the Burundian justice system, through the head of the Gitega appeal court, will demonstrate its independence and its ability to issue a ruling in a free manner.“The defence clearly explained the specifics of journalist work. A reporter who interviews a rebel chief is not a rebel. Ruvakuki was just doing his job. Contrary to what has been alleged, he killed no one and was not an accomplice in any attack. We expect a favourable outcome to this long ordeal. We expect Ruvakuki to be freed in the next few days.”All the information about the Ruvakuki case .Learn more about media freedom in Burundi .Picture : Hassan Ruvakuki (RM) October 21, 2020 Find out more Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists Receive email alerts June 5, 2020 Find out more BurundiAfrica center_img News The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa November 27, 2020 Find out more News Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention Reports News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Burundilast_img read more

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Four U.S. Navy sailors were enjoying a Florida beach with their families last weekend when cries for help led them to save the lives of two teenage women drowning off the coast.Chief Petty Officer Aniahau Desha, Seaman Gaston Yescas, Petty Officer 1st Class Sheldon Lucius, and Petty Officer 3rd Class Joshua Essick were in Hurlburt, Fla., for the 2018 Armed Forces Volleyball Championship. But the weekend will now be remembered more for what happened on the Naval Station Mayport Beach than on the court.“I was on the beach with my wife, and everyone showed up there, Josh, Sheldon, and Gaston. We’d just sat down, and some ladies came up the beach were yelling for help, seeing that the girls were out in the waves, needing help,” Desha said, according to U.S. Armed Forces Sports. “They were in trouble, so we just ran into the water and got them.”The sailors swam roughly 75 yards offshore to reach the two teens, one of whom was holding on to her unresponsive friend.“When we got on shore, as soon as I picked her up, I noticed that she wasn’t breathing,” Desha said. “It was obvious that she wasn’t breathing. I checked for her pulse – there was no pulse. So we immediately started chest compressions and mouth-to-mouth.”Desha and Yesca conducted CPR until emergency personnel arrived.The swimmer who was unresponsive was taken to the hospital, but has since been released, according to Thomas Lyszkowski, First Coast Navy Fire and Emergency Services assistant fire chief.“Since I’m a corpsman up to date with the CPR certifications and all, and I was also a lifeguard for eight years, this was honestly like a normal drill, I would say. I’ve been in a lot of incidents like this,” Yescas said.The sailors’ volleyball coach Gilburto Bermudez credited their “quick thinking, bravery, and composure under extreme pressure.”“Because of the actions of these sailors, she’s alive,” Lyszkowski added.Yescas told U.S. Armed Forces Sports that the teen’s mother sent the sailors a message on Facebook letting them know she was discharged from the hospital. The mother said her daughter would be sending the sailors a letter and photo thanking them for their heroic action.“It’s an amazing feeling knowing that this girl’s going to see another day because of what we did,” Desha said. “For the parents, especially, and as a parent myself, I couldn’t imagine hearing the news that something happened to my daughter. And if someone was there to help, I’d like them to do the same for me if it was my child. So, I’m pretty honored.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgTriggerPhoto/iStock(NEW YORK) –A year-long review into how the Archdiocese of New York was handling sexual abuse allegations has prompted some recommendations but found that overall they have been following the rules.Barbara Jones, a former District Judge, was asked by Cardinal Timothy Dolan to conduct the review which was pegged to whether the archdiocese’s policies were in line with those put forth by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in 2002, which was called the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People.“Overall, I have found that the Archdiocese has complied with the Charter in all material respects. It has faithfully followed its policies and procedures and responded appropriately to abuse complaints, and is committed to supporting victims-survivors of abuse,” Jones wrote in a summary of her findings which was released Monday morning.The most significant of the recommendations that Jones called for was the hiring of an individual whose sole job will be to oversee how the archdiocese responds to sexual abuse allegations, and to increase safe environment training both in terms of who goes through the training and how often.She also called for improvements to an existing database that would allow for easier updating and tracking of individuals’ information which “will help [the] communication and information flow between the parishes and other organizations,” Jones said at a news conference Monday. “This is vital.”Dolan was also at the news conference and said he had been almost holding his breath for the findings of the report.“I’ve asked them… not to leave a paper unread and I’ve held by breath. I’m very grateful and very relieved,” Dolan said of the findings.“I’m trying my best to serve my people. I love them and my main job is to serve them,” Dolan said.Zach Hiner, the executive director of The Survivor’s Network, also known as SNAP, told ABC News that “it is good” that Jones “feels confident in her assessment” and he said that they are glad that Dolan, “to the best of Judge Jones’ knowledge, has been transparent with her efforts.”“I truly hope that she did receive full access to personnel files,” Hiner said.He did take issue with some of the language in the report summary, however.“In terms of Judge Jones’ recommendations, it is distressing to learn that reports of ‘sexual abuse from non-consenting adults’ – carefully sanitized language for the crime of rape – or allegations of abuse by church staff or volunteers are not already included in the Archdiocese’s reporting requirements. These are obvious crimes that should be reported, and it is disappointing that it took a legal review by a judge in 2019 to make this plain. To us, someone who is in ‘full compliance’ with the charter would already have gone the extra mile to include these crimes underneath the ‘zero-tolerance’ umbrella,” Hiner said in his statement to ABC.The review of the archdiocese’s policies comes at a turbulent time in New York, in particular, as a year-long window opened in August that allows for any victims of child abuse to file civil complaints against accusers regardless of any statutes of limitations in those cases. Hundreds of such lawsuits have been filed since the New York’s Child Victim’s Act window opened on Aug. 14.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgPc3–4 magnetic pulsations have been observed at Halley, Antarctica (L = 4.2), simultaneously with oscillations in the phase of F-region echoes received using a digital ionosonde. One event, lasting more than 6 hours in the afternoon of 15 December 1982, shows a crossing of the plasmapause as Halley moved into the bulge region of the plasmasphere. On the ionosonde it is marked by a change in frequency of the Pc3–4 oscillations and a short lived or sharply bounded charged particle precipitation event. On the magnetometer it can be deduced from the changes in ellipticity of pulsations occurring simultaneously at three separate frequencies. The amplitude of the ionosonde phase pulsations is shown to peak when the field line with that natural resonant frequency passes through the observation site. Cross spectral analysis techniques have been used on this event to investigate the relationships between the magnetic field components and ionospheric echo parameters, and the physical processes linking the two. The phase difference between the magnetometer and ionosonde pulsations is highly variable. Detailed analysis supports a combination of direct compressional action by the hydromagnetic wave and vertical motion induced by an E × B drift.last_img read more

first_imgA leading light within the property industry has launched a new kind of estate agency that charges buyers rather than vendors to sell homes.Rezee is the brainchild of George Beercock and business partner Fran Bradley (pictured) who have worked in traditional estate agency, auctioneering and property development in the past.His family run Beercocks, which has ten branches across East Yorkshire and northern Lincolnshire, while Bradley has worked for a development company in the region for many years.Rezee offers vendors a 0% commission service while buyers pay a minimum reservation fee of £2,500 to secure a property once an offer has been accepted, or up to 1.5% of a property’s sale value.Beercock claims his estate agency model prevents gazumping and means buyers are secure in the knowledge that they’ll complete on a property.Club membership also includes access to properties seven days before they are uploaded to the property portals.Stripped back“We are offering a hassle-free, stripped back approach to home buying that consumers have been crying out for,” he says.“We are excited to see sellers in the local area embrace what is undoubtedly the future of the industry“Selling a house can be an extremely stressful experience and when you take into account that one third of house sales fall through, sometimes just days before completion, then it is clear that the traditional model is in need of a re-vamp.“In the aftermath of the recent lockdown and with people facing financial constraints, we know that now more than ever sellers are looking for genuine commitment and certainty that the sale will proceed.”George Beercock Fran Bradley Rezee Beercocks August 12, 2020Nigel Lewis3 commentsMichael Day, Integra Property Services Integra Property Services 17th August 2020 at 10:59 amFees are shown here without VAT – the reservation fee is actually £3000 and the % is 1.8% inclusive of VAT. Trading Standards might want to take a look. Consumers can’t (in teh main) recover VAT and so all fees etc should be shown as inclusive.The process uses the “modern method of auction” as its model but the agreed sale doesn’t create a two way “lock out” agreement. The buyer will lose their “reservation fee” which is, the agents income (not sure if shared with the seller), if they withdraw for any reason yet have no redress against the seller if the seller doesn’t proceed (they will get their reservation fee back but may have shelled out money on other fees – appreciate this is the case on private treaty sales). Not sure if Rezee get a fee from the seller in that instance?I welcome new (ish) ideas and innovation but, for me, this isn’t it.Log in to ReplyCraig Fuller, Stacks Property Search Stacks Property Search 15th August 2020 at 9:12 amSurely this creates a direct conflict of interest; you should be acting 100% with the Vendors interest in mind and yet you are being paid your fee by a Buyer! A direct conflict of interest.Log in to ReplyGerald Bowers, The Good Estate Agent – North Nottinghamshire The Good Estate Agent – North Nottinghamshire 14th August 2020 at 9:42 amOK great. But what about when we move to the model where the buyer appoints their own agent and the seller has a different agent?

The highlight class of the seventh week of the 2021 Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) was the $401,000 Lugano Diamonds Grand Prix CSI5*, and Bertram Allen (IRL) was brilliant with Pacino Amiro, owned by Aiden McGrory, for victory on Saturday, February 27.WEF 7 concludes on Sunday, February 28, with the $73,000 CaptiveOne Advisors 1.50m Classic CSI5* and $50,000 Griffis Residential Grand Prix CSI2*. Spectators can watch feature classes live and on demand for free using the livestream.Riding over a challenging course set by Anthony D’Ambrosio (USA) and Andy Christiansen (ECU) that featured the open water, a triple combination, and two double combinations, five riders found the path to a clear round and advanced to the jump-off out of 40 starting entries.The first to return for the jump-off were Lorcan Gallagher (IRL) and VDL Cartello, owned by Heathman Farm, LLC. They had one rail down to finish in fifth place in 38.47 seconds.Immediately following, Allen and Pacino Amiro sped through the course in 35.32 seconds, a time that couldn’t be caught by the remaining three competitors.“There was no real standard set before I went in because Lorcan obviously had a fence down,” said Allen, “and there were only three coming after me, but they were obviously three very, very good ones on fast horses. I know my guy is fast, and with only five in it, the worst case I was fifth. I was going to give it a good shot, and thankfully it came off.”Mario Deslauriers (CAN) and Bardolina 2, a 12-year-old Holsteiner mare by Clarimo x Landos owned by Wishing Well Farm LLC, were clear and off the pace in 37.62 seconds for third place.“When I saw Bertram go, I was walking next in the ring and I said, ‘That’s going to be hard to catch for me,’” said Deslauriers. “My horse has a big stride, but she is not the fastest horse, and she can sometimes be a little finicky to ride so I thought I went as fast as I could. I was trying to leave all the jumps up and see where I end up, but I was very pleased. She jumped great tonight.”In a class stacked with Irishmen, it was Daniel Coyle and Ariel Grange’s Legacy, an 11-year-old Zangersheide mare by Chippendale Z x Bon Ami, who came closest to Allen’s leading time. They were clear in 37.11 seconds to finish in second place.“Anything Bertram does in the jump-off is usually hard to follow or catch,” said Coyle. “I knew before I went in that was going to be a challenge so I just stuck to my own plan and if it was good enough, great, and if not, there will be lots more. It’s Legacy’s first class under the lights this year, and I always have huge, huge expectations of her.”Aiming for his third five-star class win of the week, Daniel Deusser (GER) was the final competitor in the jump-off. Riding Stephex Stables’ Killer Queen VDM (who won the four-star grand prix in WEF 4), Deusser made a strong effort, but a downed rail in 35.62 seconds put them just off the podium in fourth place.Allen and Pacino Amiro, who led the victory gallop during WEF 2 in the Adequan® WEF Challenge Cup, were riding in only their second five-star grand prix under the lights. It was an impressive finish for the nine-year-old Irish Sport Horse gelding by Pacino x NC Amiro, who was also in the jump-off during the WEF 5 five-star grand prix.“The last grand prix I suppose I was stepping into the unknown a little bit with him,” admitted Allen. “He had never jumped a five star or been under the lights, and he handled it very well. Tonight, I was a bit more confident that I knew that he could do it, so I was just hoping that he was going to be on form. He was even better again tonight.”Allen has been riding Pacino Amiro since he was seven years old and developed him as a young horse. “He’s a little bit of a special character, and I know him very, very well,” he described. “Since week one he’s gotten better and better, and he is a lovely horse who wants to try his best all the time and learn.”Watch the press conference with the top three riders:Video Playerhttps://pbiec-cdn.s3.amazonaws.com/video/WEF/2021/Marketing/CSI5_2.27.21_Press%20Conference.mp400:0000:0008:49Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.With many competitions cancelled in Europe this winter, Allen was thankful to be able to compete in Wellington once again.“It’s brilliant,” he said. “I was here for a bit of the season [in 2020] and that got cut short, and then it was very start and stop and a lot of the time with no shows. To be here consistently jumping at a very high level, we are all very lucky and make the most of it.”Final Results: $401,000 Lugano Diamonds Grand Prix CSI5*1.
