Head of UN agency promoting press freedom condemns murder of Thai journalist

10 October 2008The head of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has deplored the murder of Thai journalist, while stressing that it is vital for the future of press freedom in the South-East Asian nation for the perpetrators of the attack to be brought to justice. “I condemn the killing of Jaruek Rangcharoen,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said in a statement issued today, adding that crimes against journalists undermine society as a whole, given that freedom of expression and press freedom are “essential for democracy and rule of law.” Mr. Rangcharoen, 46, reported on corruption for the Matichon newspaper. He was shot in the head several times on 27 September in the province of Suphan Buri in central Thailand. “It is important for the future of press freedom in Thailand that the perpetrators of this reprehensible crime be brought to justice,” said Mr. Matsuura, who commended the authorities for the speedy launch of an investigation into the attack. UNESCO is the only UN agency with a mandate to defend freedom of expression and press freedoms. read more

Hedge fund to pay 600M to settle SEC insider trading charges fund

WASHINGTON – A hedge fund company will pay more than $600 million in what federal regulators are calling the largest insider trading settlement.The Securities and Exchange Commission said Friday that CR Intrinsic Investors has agreed to settle charges that it traded on non-public information about trials of an Alzheimer’s drug.The commission also settled charges against Sigma Capital Management for $14 million. Sigma allegedly profited illegally from early information about the earnings of two technology companies.The cases stem from a long-running probe of insider trading by hedge funds, many of which are affiliated with SAC Capital Partners. CR Intrinsic was an affiliate of SAC.

Canadian dollar little changed traders look to jobs data rising oil prices

by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 8, 2015 9:45 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Canadian dollar little changed, traders look to jobs data, rising oil prices TORONTO – The Canadian dollar was little changed Thursday amid flat oil prices and hopes for strong job creation data from the United States and Canada.The loonie was up 0.01 of a cent to 84.61 cents US.Oil prices were stable after data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed that U.S. crude inventories declined by 3.1 million barrels last week. Analysts had expected supplies to increase by 380,000 barrels. The February crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange was unchanged at US$48.65 a barrel following a 72 cent rise.Oil prices have tumbled more than 50 per cent from June, 2014, highs of about US$107, partly because of demand concerns. But a global glut of supply has particularly depressed prices. Prices have skidded 34 per cent just since late November, when the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries opted to leave production levels unchanged and analysts have largely given up trying to call a bottom to oil prices.Metal prices were mixed with March copper unchanged at US$2.76 a pound while February gold rose $3.50 to US$1,214.20 an ounce.There was optimism ahead of the release Friday of the U.S. government’s employment report for December after payroll firm ADP said Wednesday that the private sector created 241,000 jobs last month. Economists expect that a total of 240,000 jobs were created, down from 321,000 in November.Canadian jobs data for December will also be released Friday and economists generally expect that the economy cranked out about 10,000 jobs last month. read more

Police officer who fought London Bridge terrorists says he felt like a

first_imgWayne Marques the British Transport Police officer who tackled the three knife wielding terrorists on London Bridge, British Transport Police's Wayne Marques who fought off London Bridge attackers speaks to the media for the first time The 38-year-old tried to fend off the attackers after they had blinded him in one eye and said he is still recovering from his injuries after trying to tackle the three jihadists during their rampage through the Borough area of Southwark.Speaking for the first time since the June 3 attack that killed eight, the British Transport Police Officer said he had only just begun his shift when he heard screams as he patrolled with a colleague near London Bridge Station. “The short one that was on the right-hand side, he was the one that I heard saying ‘Allahu Akbar, Allahu Akbar’. He said it a few times, eyes bulging.”He added: “And I’m basically just like a cowboy western movie waiting for the draw, waiting for them to make their move.”But for some reason, the attackers instead left  him to rush off towards Borough Market where they continued their rampage. All three were shot dead by police minutes later.As his colleague sent a radio message through saying “officer down”, Pc Marques told him: “Go get ’em, you’ve got to go get ’em.”Pc Marques lay on the ground and began to feel a “black cloud” descend as he started to lose consciousness. He said: “I remember grabbing my baton with my right hand and I racked [extended] it. I took a deep breath and I just charged the first one [attacker].” “By the time I got there some of them were already dead and dying. I couldn’t help everybody.”Being a hero was the last thing I was thinking about. Even fighting terrorists was the last thing I was thinking about. All I was trying to do was keep people alive. That was my job, keep people alive. And that’s what I did, that’s what I tried to do.” Wayne Marques the British Transport Police officer who tackled the three knife wielding terrorists on London Bridge,Credit:John Stillwell/PA He said: “That black cloud starts to come to your vision and starts closing in and closing in and I pretty much knew time was up.”He told a colleague to pass on his last messages to his parents, partner and the rest of his family as he prepared to die. He added: “As I got near him I swung at him with everything I had as hard as I could, straight through his head, trying to go for like a knock-out blow.”His blow made the attacker “yelp in pain”, but then found himself surrounded and fighting desperately for around 90 seconds.During the fight, he was stabbed just above his right eye, and suffering severe wounds to his head, left leg and left hand.The officer, who has worked with BTP for just under two years and was a PCSO with the Met for around six years beforehand, said a blow to his head plunged him into “instant darkness”. A pink ceramic knife found hung on Khuram Shazad Butt's arm used by Butt in the London Bridge terrorist attack on 03 June 2017center_img A police officer who fought off the three knife-wielding London Bridge attackers armed only with his baton has described facing up to the gang like a scene from a Western.Pc Wayne Marques was repeatedly stabbed and believed he was going to die from his wounds after the desperate struggle to stop Youssef Zaghba, Khuram Butt and Rachid Redouane. He saw a disturbance where bouncers and customers were queuing to get into a nearby bar and at first thought he was witnessing a pub or gang fight “at the most”.But an off-duty Metropolitan Police officer approached saying he had seen someone stabbed and shortly afterwards Pc Marques himself saw people being attacked on the High Street. He said: “That was it. Time was up. It’s hard to explain what you kind of think and feel at the time.”His next clear memory was waking up in hospital, feeling a mixture of relief, shock and surprise.After a number of operations, Pc Marques was discharged from hospital on Friday. He has regained sight in his eye, but cannot walk unaided, struggles to grip with his left hand, and has lost feeling in the right side of his head where nerves were severed.He said: “Hopefully with the right help and the right care, I’ll get my legs back – that will be a great feeling, I am looking forward to getting my legs back definitely.”His family and partner are reluctant for him to return to the streets as a police officer, arguing he has “done enough”.He said: “Am I a hero? I guess in a lot of people’s eyes I am but there are still eight people that lost their lives and many more that got wounded. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

He said: “He’d hit me so hard that my right eye went lights out straight away, I just went blind.”He said: “The second one and the third one I was basically fighting left to right, because I only had one eye so I’m moving left to right, left to right.”At that point he recalled being stabbed in the leg by the first attacker. He said: “I’m thinking: ‘S***, there’s a knife in my leg while I’m fighting the second one and the third one.”‘After being stabbed in the hand he said he could remember little except for “swinging [my baton] all over the place”.Seconds later, he recalls the attackers facing him like a scene from a film.He said: “And the three of them were standing together almost shoulder-to-shoulder in like a little wolf pack and they’re staring at me. And that’s when I get to size them up.

It would probably be bad for boxing if McGregor won but fk

first_img Jun 21st 2017, 2:59 PM Source: Presseye/Darren Kidd/INPHORingside for elder schoolmate Barnes’ triumph was new IBF World bantamweight champion Ryan Burnett, fresh off plastic surgery following a deep cut suffered during his own win over Lee Haskins seven days prior.Given their respective weights and talents, Irish boxing sage Kevin Byrne mooted an all-Belfast scrap between Burnett and Conlan as far back as 2015 when Burnett was 11-0 and Conlan still an amateur. Four years beforehand, Conlan had edged the Youth Olympic gold medalist 4-3 at the quarter-final stage of the Irish Seniors – a victory which would forever alter the course of both fighters’ careers. It was Burnett’s last defeat in the ring.Conlan is aware he’s not long enough in the door of the pros to be calling for heads, but readily admits that a fight between he and Burnett might well manifest itself a couple of years down the line.“It all depends on Ryan,” he says. “It’s whether he moves through the divisions and comes up in weight. I’m going to be at super-bantamweight until I win a world title – there’s no doubt about that. The only way I go up before that is if I become naturally too big. But I’d say I’ll be at super-bantam for a maximum of four years and then featherweight. It’s whether Ryan moves up as well is the question.I would love that fight in the future. I’m sure he’d love it too as I’m the last person to beat him, so it’d be one he’ll probably always want to get back.“But going back to his world title fight: I thought he boxed brilliantly. He put in a great shift against Lee Haskins who I thought was going to be a problem, to be honest, because Lee’s just so awkward. But Ryan’s just…he put in a great performance. Credit to him and credit his coach for coming up with a great gameplan.”For now, Conlan remains focused on Brisbane. After that, it’s on to Vegas for another mega-event, and the fly in boxing’s ointment that is Floyd Mayweather versus Conor McGregor.McGregor famously walked Conlan to the ring for his debut back in March, which led to some speculation that Conlan might sneak onto the undercard of the UFC lightweight champion’s clash with an all-time boxing great. Promotional politics, however, will likely put paid to the idea before it can be even motioned; Mayweather and Conlan’s promoters Top Rank – and in particular the latter’s CEO Bob Arum – have a poisonous relationship, and tend only to do business when there’s close to $600m on the line.Not that it’s stopped Conlan from chancing his arm.“I sent Conor a message saying, ‘get me on that card’, but he hasn’t replied to me yet!“But nah, I think it’s impossible. At the end of the day it’s Floyd’s fight, and Floyd and Top Rank have history. It’s unlikely, but you know, anything is possible in boxing. And that’s the truth – anything is possible in this sport.”Conlan will instead return the favour from March, or as he sees it, receive another favour from ‘The Notorious’, and join the Crumlin man’s team ahead of his Hail Mary shot at ‘Money’.He does however reckon he’ll be less forthcoming with advice than a particularly vocal McGregor was on St. Patrick’s night in New York.I’ll be there at the fight anyway. Conor’s asked me to be a part of his camp. But people keep saying that I’m going to come down and give him all this boxing advice. I won’t be doing that. He’s got people there who are paid to do that, and anyway, I don’t know how to beat Floyd Mayweather! It’s a bit crazy.“He’s only asked me to be part of the camp to experience the big fight atmosphere and what it’s going to be like.” Source: Tom Hogan/INPHOMany remain incredulous that the fight is taking place at all. Conlan is too, but not in a begrudging way. He’s seen some outlandish things in boxing himself over the past 12 months, and he’s made his peace with this latest installment.“I am happy for Conor and Floyd.” he says. “Well, I’m not really a fan of Floyd… But they’ve both seen an opportunity and cashed in. And I’m happy for Conor as an Irishman and a sportsperson. He’s come into this sport with his story, being on the brew [dole] and stuff, and those first couple of paychecks.“Now he’ll be making 100% the biggest purse for a pro debut in boxing. It’s fucking crazy! It’s mental stuff. He’s going to cash out with a lot of money in his pocket, and fair play to him.”On of the more curious aspects to the contest is the sheer volume of Irish boxers who have backed McGregor to do what 49 professional boxers couldn’t do and overcome the undefeated five-weight world champion, proclamations which in essence devalue their own craft. In spite of his relationship with the MMA icon, Conlan’s own outlook is far more pragmatic.He puts his fellow Irish boxers’ predictions down not to delusion, but nationalistic bravado. And he’s partial to a bit of it himself.You know yourself, some people are realists. But Irish people, no matter what, you’ll back your own. Fuck’s sake, we think Ireland are going to win the World Cup every time we’re in it. Like, there’s always that chance that gets people dreaming. To be honest, it would probably be bad for boxing if Conor won, but fuck it, I’m an Irishman. I hope he does it.“Look, it’s a fight which is almost impossible for Conor, but as I’ve said, in the sport of boxing anything is possible.”If anyone should know, it’s Michael Conlan.The42 is on Instagram!

By Gavan Casey Short URL Image: Gary Carr/INPHO https://the42.ie/3455557 Image: Gary Carr/INPHO Share769 Tweet Email HAVING LEFT QUITE the impression on New York and Chicago in his first two professional fights, Michael Conlan is packing his bags for a business trip Down Under.On 2 July, Ireland’s former amateur boxing icon will emerge from the tunnel at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium to a cacophony of noise from a near-capacity crowd, about half an hour before future Hall of Famer Manny Pacquiao defends his WBO World welterweight strap against hometown hero Jeff Horn within the same squared circle.Further still, thanks to a new deal secured by Pacquiao and Conlan’s promoters Top Rank, both fights will be broadcast on ESPN – the world’s largest sports network which is beamed to over 90 million households in the States. Despite having headlined The Theater at Madison Square Garden on his debut, and Chicago’s UCI Pavilion for his second pro contest, the wee man from Belfast’s Falls Road is under no illusions as to the magnitude of his upcoming opportunity.Mind you, he was until Monday.“It’s the biggest fight so far, 100%,” Conlan tells The42. “Especially now with the platform we’re on, with ESPN.” Examining which Irish boxers, if any, will appear on the Mayweather-McGregor undercard I didn’t realise how big it was until I was talking with Steve Kim [US boxing journalist] on Monday. He came to the gym and he was talking to me, and he had to tell me how big this actually is. This is bloody huge. I came out to the States, and I obviously knew ESPN was big, but the way he was explaining it to me, this is a serious move by Top Rank. And I’m the kind of…co-feature…for Pacquiao!”He can barely string the sentence together such is his laughter at the absurdity of it all. Conlan will fight as chief support to the eight-time world champion on a card which will likely draw millions of viewers, and not merely of a boxing persuasion. His position on the bill also dictates that he’ll fight in front of a near full house.It’s somewhat of a contrast to the rather derided narrative back in April that Katie Taylor would throw down under the gaze of 90,000 fans at Wembley; while there was still a sizable crowd present by regular boxing standards, Taylor destroyed Nina Meinke so early on the Joshua-Klitschko bill that there remained swathes of red seats around the stadium.“It looks like it’s going to be a 60,000 sellout,” Conlan says. “They had scheduled for 55,000, and now they’ve released another 5,000-odd tickets. And it’s only my third fight. It’s massive.”I wouldn’t even say it was 60,000 fans when Katie was fighting. Not to be disrespectful to Katie – I’m her biggest fan, the woman is a legend – but a lot of people were still at the bar and still getting to the arena when she was fighting. But I’m obviously very fortunate in that I’m on right before Pacquiao. It’s going to be interesting.It also presents the 25-year-old with a unique opportunity to appease the enormous Irish diaspora in Australia, with hundreds on Twitter feverish in their excitement that they’ll get to watch two-time Olympian Conlan in the flesh next month. That in itself means a lot to a man whose first two fights have pulled in over 9,000 fans in the States, most of them Irish.“There’s literally thousands of Irish going, and I’m not just saying that. It’s unbelievable, like. I’ll definitely have more Irish fans watching me in Brisbane than I did in Chicago.“I’ve spoken to people in Sydney and they’ve said that everybody they know is going to the fight. And people in Melbourne have said the exact same thing. So it seems like everybody is travelling all over Australia for this. Plus, I have family there. My Godmother and my Godfather and my three cousins all live over there, so it’s perfect. I leave today and I just can’t wait to get over there.”The word pressure typically draws a scoff from the reigning World amateur champion, but given the enormity of July’s occasion, he’s keen to put on a show when he trades leather with Australian Jarett Owen [5-4-3].After dispatching Denver’s Tim Ibarra on his debut, a disappointed Conlan graded his performance with an ‘F’. He gave himself an ‘E’ following his two-knockdown win over Mexican Alfredo Chanez within the same distance in Chicago, before having a change of heart and failing himself once more.Teachers in Belfast are evidently tough task masters, but with the benefit of hindsight and indeed Youtube, Conlan can accept that some of his perceived shortcomings thus far have been scarcely avoidable. He also admitted that both he and his manager Matthew Macklin had requested that he be paired with more capable opponents after a facile but messy victory in Chicago.“When I look back on it now, I wouldn’t even say it was that I was disappointed with my performances so much. I feel that, given the opponents, I could have performed better. But the opponents who have been given to me so far have been just so negative that it’s hard to look good.“I’m improving in the gym, and the sparring I’m getting is unbelievable, and I feel like I’m getting better every day, so I wouldn’t even say it’s me, but more the calibre of opponents. Even the last guy [Alfredo Chanez] – we had watched footage of him and we were actually expecting him to come and give it a go, but after the first few punches he just didn’t want to know. He tried to survive and tried to play crybaby, and yap his way out of it. He actually tried to get me disqualified.After the last fight I told Top Rank I need better opponents, and Matthew [Macklin] told them also. But the thing is, I just have to trust them at the same time, because let’s be honest, I’m not in any rush. I’m still young. Who am I to question what they’re doing?“It’s going to get harder no matter what, so it’s better to enjoy what I’m doing now and keep improving.”Across the Atlantic, Conlan’s old chum Paddy Barnes won his first professional title last Saturday night, picking up the WBO European flyweight title – and perhaps more pertinently, a top-15 ranking with the WBO – with a majority decision victory over Silvio Olteanu at Belfast’s Waterfront Hall.Barnes, like Conlan, is his own harshest critic, and was extremely candid in his own post-fight assessment. The three-time Olympian came in for harsh flak online, not that he was too bothered. Conlan was more constructive in his appraisal of his close friend’s performance and spoke with Barnes after his win, but accepts criticism of both men is understandable given their pugilistic pedigree.I watched Paddy’s fight on tv over here. I have a wee box so I can watch it. I thought he won, I had it close, but he’s going to get criticism no matter what – me as well – because we are such accomplished amateurs, and we’ve been talking for long enough about moving to the pros. Paddy’s been calling out world champions!“If I was to be honest, I thought he won fairly comfortably – yes – but I also thought maybe it was just a fight too soon, and maybe he should have had an eight-rounder first.“Not that I felt he performed badly, but he still should be looking good and working on things while fighting a guy who can test him. But I’m not sure if he was working on anything there [versus Olteanu]. I felt he was kind of just getting through it, and he had to go back to his old self to get the job done rather than performing what he’s been working on.” Follow us: the42.ie 47 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Have Paper Prices Peaked

first_imgWith U.S. magazine publishers seeing their ad pages plummet (down 9.4 percent through September, according to the Publishers Information Bureau) and page counts dwindle, the paper market is oversupplied “which makes it very hard for producers to raise prices,” said Chris Cook, deputy editor of PPI Pulp & Paper Week. “What goes up, must come down.”Mill orders in September were off 17 percent in what is normally a seasonally strong month, Cook said.Magazine paper prices have risen about $230/ton—about 25 percent—in the past 18 months, Cook said, but industry analysts don’t expect them to fall that far “because producers will idle their machines rather than run at a loss.”If paper prices have peaked, as RISI predicts, when will they return? “When producers again match supply to demand the market will tighten and price hikes become possible,” Cook said.  “But for this to happen either we need an economic recovery which generates more paper demand through increased print advertising or producers will have to remove capacity.”Cook said he wouldn’t expect it in 2009: “It looks to me as if magazine publishers are in for a world of hurt next year.” For an industry reeling from layoffs, closings and hemorrhaging print advertising dollars, finally some good news.RISI, a leading information provider for global forest products industry, said last week that the prices for nearly all grades of paper used by magazine publishers—including newsprint and coated freesheet—peaked in October.According to a report in the current issue of RISI’s Paper Trader monthly magazine, market prices for most grades either peaked or began to decline last month.Meanwhile, RISI’s International Woodfiber Report recently predicted that North American virgin wood fiber demand could fall more than 20 million tons by 2009. That report cited the rash of mill closures this year and other “negative indicators” as the primary factors in its forecast.last_img read more

Quota protesters on the streets again

Taiwan approves samesex marriages in first for Asia

first_imgGay rights supporters celebrate outside Parliament after lawmakers legalised same-sex marriage bill in Taipei on 17 May. Photo: AFPTaiwan’s parliament legalised same-sex marriage on Friday in a landmark first for Asia as the government survived a last-minute attempt by conservatives to pass watered-down legislation.Lawmakers comfortably passed a bill allowing same-sex couples to form “exclusive permanent unions” and another clause that would let them apply for a “marriage registration” with government agencies.The vote — which took place on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia — is a major victory for the island’s LGBT community who have campaigned for years to have equal marriage rights and it places the island at the vanguard of Asia’s burgeoning gay rights movement.In recent months conservatives had mobilised to rid the law of any reference to marriage, instead putting forward rival bills that offered something closer to limited same-sex unions. But those bills struggled to receive enough votes.Gay rights groups hailed the vote on Friday, saying the ability to apply for a “marriage registration” — known as Clause Four — put their community much closer to parity with heterosexual couples.”The passage of Clause Four ensures that two persons of the same-sex can register their marriage on 24 May and ensure that Taiwan becomes the first country in Asia to legalise same-sex marriage and to successfully open a new page in history,” said the Taiwan Alliance to Promote Civil Partnership Rights.Court orderTwo years ago Taiwan’s top court ruled that not allowing same-sex couples to marry violates the constitution with judges giving the government until 24 May 2019 to make the changes or see marriage equality enacted automatically.Other key sections of the law were still being debated and voted on Friday, including what, if any, provisions there will be for same-sex couples to adopt.Whatever the result, the law will not bring full parity with heterosexual couples as even the most progressive version only offers biological adoptions.Gay rights groups had previously indicated they were willing to accept compromises, as long as the new law recognised the concept of marriage, adding they could fight legal battles over surrogacy and adoption down the line.”In Taiwan a marriage will take effect when it’s registered, so allowing marriage registration is no doubt recognising the marriage itself,” Victoria Hsu, a gay rights lawyer, told AFP.Families dividedIn the last decade, Taiwan has been one of the most progressive societies in Asia when it comes to gay rights, staging the continent’s biggest annual gay pride parade.But the island remains a staunchly conservative place, especially outside urban areas.Conservative and religious groups were buoyed by a series of referendum wins in November, in which voters comprehensively rejected defining marriage as anything other than a union between a man and a woman, illustrating the limited popular support.In a Facebook post president Tsai Ing-wen said she recognised the issue had divided “families, generations and even inside religious groups”.”Today, we have a chance to make history and show the world that progressive values can take root in an East Asian society,” she added in a tweet ahead of the vote.Tsai had previously spoken in favour of gay marriage but was later accused of dragging her feet after the court judgement, fearful of a voter backlash.Taiwan goes to the polls in January.Thousands of gay rights supporters gathered outside parliament for the vote, despite heavy downpours.”We are just a group of people who want to live well on this land and who love each other,” gay activist Cindy Su told the crowd.But opponents were incensed by the vote, saying the inclusion of the “marriage registration” clause ignored the referendum.Tseng Hsien-ying, from the Coalition for the Happiness of Our Next Generation, told local media the vote “trampled on Taiwanese people’s expectations that a marriage and a family is formed by a man and a woman, a husband and a wife”.Australia and New Zealand are the only places in the wider Asia-Pacific region to have passed gay marriage laws.Taiwan is the first place in Asia to do so.Vietnam decriminalised gay marriage celebrations in 2015, but it stopped short of full legal recognition for same-sex unions.last_img read more

Civilian Review Board Pushes For More Autonomy

first_imgBy Stephen Janis, Special to the AFROOn the 10th floor offices of Baltimore’s Civil Rights and Wage Enforcement Agency, the Civilian Review Board made a weighty decision several weeks ago, that practically no one knows about.The case involved off-duty out of uniform Baltimore City police officer Damon Durant.  In 2017 he pulled a gun on unarmed teen waiting for a bus in Howard County.The incident did not produce criminal charges against Durant, but internal affairs said there was enough evidence to warrant an administrative investigation.West Baltimore Sen. Jill Carter has crafted legislation that would bring greater autonomy to Baltimore’s Civilian Review Board (pictured) , a group she once led.

Armed with the findings, the nine-member body voted to recommend firing the officer earlier this monthIt was a relief for Erica Hamlet, who lead a year-long campaign to hold the officer accountable.  It was also a significant moment for her son Jawone who faced down the gun, and who she says still suffers from trauma related to the near deadly encounter.“For them to have suggested termination, it was a great feat for us. I cried,” she told The AFRO.“We’ve been at this for 15 months, it’s been a battle.”.But the board’s decision has no consequences for the Officer Durant because it can only recommend, not mete out punishment.  Even more problematic for proponents of civilian oversight is the board does not have a mechanism to make its decision public.Only Hamlet’s willingness to speak out has the CRB’s decision known beyond the confines of the Civil Rights offices.Which is why State Senator Jill Carter, the former director of the Office of Civil Rights, is pushing legislation in Annapolis this year to give the board more autonomy and transparency.Earlier this month the veteran legislator introduced a bill that would establish the Community Oversight and Accountability Commission, which would replace the current CRB.The new body would have vastly expanded investigatory powers. It would also be funded by the police department.“The only way to ensure real reform and accountability with the Baltimore Police Department is by empowering an independent entity to investigate allegations of misconduct and effectuate discipline, “Carter told the AFRO.“The best way to do that is to transform the current Civilian Review Board into the Community Oversight and Accountability Commission and provide it adequate resources and requisite authority to carry out its mission.”The board would be an independent body, managed by an Executive Director appointed with input from the mayor and city council president but who would serve at the pleasure of the board.Unlike, the current board, it would also be able to publish the results of investigations, a critical component missing from the current process, Carter says.“This bill puts the control of the process where it belongs, in the hands of the people.”The bill would separate the CRB from the city’s legal department, an entanglement that precipitated a conflict that she says waylaid efforts to make it a more viable body.Last year the board publicly released a decision faulting officers involved in the controversial homicide investigation of Keith Davis, saying they were wrong to charge after he was shot by several BPD officers.  Davis is accused of killing Kevin Jones, a security guard, in 2015.After the findings were made public current city solicitor Andre Davis insisted the board sign a second non-disclosure agreement.But board members refused, and consequently the police department stopped sharing brutality complaints with the board.  The board subsequently sued the city’s legal department.  Davis eventually relented, and the BPD has since handed over records to the CRB.The ensuing fallout left the CRB hamstrung.  It also seemed to contravene public commitments made by city leaders to increase civilian involvement in efforts to reform the department currently under federal consent decree.But the prolonged conflict has also convinced current CRB board member George Buntin Carter’s overhaul is not only important, but essential to the future of civilian oversight.“I absolutely support the Senate Bill introduced by Senator Carter,” Buntin told the AFRO.“I think strong civilian oversight, in partnership with the police department’s Office of Professional Responsibility, would be an immensely needed first step in restoring trust between BCPD and the greater community.”last_img read more

MoMa acquires 14 video games for collection confirms video games as art

first_imgIn an argument that Roger Ebert basically started then eventually backed out of, the Museum of Modern Art has taken a side, and acquired 14 video games as part of a new collection, with an aim to grow it to 40 titles in the future. If MoMa housing a collection of works doesn’t declare something as “officially art,” we don’t know what does.The 14 games that have already been officially chosen:Pac-Man (1980)Tetris (1984)Another World (1991)Myst (1993)SimCity 2000 (1994)vib-ribbon (1999)The Sims (2000)EVE Online (2003)Katamari Damacy (2004)Dwarf Fortress (2006)flOw (2006)Portal (2007)Passage (2008)Canabalt (2009)In MoMa’s announcement, it asks the question “Are video games art?” answering, “they sure are.” However, it didn’t simply choose which game is the prettiest, or has the most stylized art, but rather used design approach as their main metric. The games were selected for being “outstanding examples of interaction design,” and MoMa is even taking the elegance of a game’s code into consideration. Within the next few years, MoMa wants its collection to grow, with its sights set on a large swath of games we can all pretty much agree belong on the list.Spacewar! (1962)various games from the Magnavox Odyssey (1972)Pong (1972)the original Snake (1970s)Space Invaders (1978)Asteroids (1979)Zork (1979)Tempest (1981)Donkey Kong (1981)Yar’s Revenge (1982)M.U.L.E. (1983)Core War (1984)Marble Madness (1984)Super Mario Bros. (1985)The Legend of Zelda (1986)Nethack (1987)Street Fighter II (1991)Chrono Trigger (1995)Super Mario 64 (1996)Grim Fandango (1998)Animal Crossing (2001)Minecraft (2011)Don’t be too mad that games like Journey, Rez, and Shadow of the Colossus aren’t on the list yet. MoMa is on the right track, and — if anything — setting its sights on Tim Schafer (with Grim Fandango) shows a great deal of competence and promise for the collection.Some of the main design traits MoMa is looking for when considering to acquire a game include a game’s designed behavior, the aesthetics, if the game does something unique in its medium, and how the game’s length affects the overall experience.Depending on the best presentation of the game, MoMa might make it available to play in the gallery. The whole of Chrono Trigger, for example, wouldn’t quite lend itself to a playable art exhibit, whereas five minutes of flOw or the open, timeless approach of Minecraft (hunger meter aside!) would lend itself well to groups of museum patrons shuffling in and out. However, MoMa is thinking of ways to present demos of the games that don’t quite lend itself to a full play. It’ll be especially interesting to see how the museum presents EVE Online, a game that doesn’t lend itself well to a museum atmosphere because of its very genre, but also because it is regularly referred to as “playing a spreadsheet.”The initial 14 games will be installed in MoMa’s Philip Johnson Galleries in March 2013.last_img read more

Google Maps AR Navigation Rolls Out to More Devices

first_imgStay on target Google Maps Highlights Bike-Sharing Stations, AvailabilityGoogle Maps Predicts How Crowded Your Train, Bus Will Be Google Maps is finally releasing its Live View augmented reality navigation feature for Android and iOS.Part of a larger Maps expansion—streamlined flight and hotel reservations, restaurant suggestions, more ways to share memories—the AR function steers users in real time.“There’s nothing like exploring a city on foot—it’s a great way to take in the sights and sounds of a new place,” Rachel Inman, UX designer for Google Maps, wrote in a blog post. “But it can be hard to know exactly which direction to go.”Giant blue-and-white arrows superimposed onto your surroundings, however, can help.Beta Live View, now available on iOS and Android devices that support ARKit and ARCore, leverages GPS to sense your basic location. It then uses the built-in camera to generate a more accurate location, with 3D indicators that tell you where to turn.And thanks to the augmented reality overlay, you won’t miss real-time views or get lost.The search giant originally introduced the feature at a 2018 developers conference, before testing it with the Local Guides and Pixel community. Google doesn’t want users to depend too heavily on AR, though: It drains your battery and darkens your screen. So it’s probably best to use the new navigation feature in short intervals.Also new in Google Maps:Use the app to see all of your flight and hotel reservations in one place: Menu (three dots in top left corner) > Your Places > Reservations; selecting your trip will instantly open reservations, even when offline.Quickly find restaurants tailored to your tastes with Your Match; see how long the wait is and book a reservation before checking out the must-try menu items.Turn on Location History to tap into the updated Timeline to relive all of the places you visited; export recommendations to a list, make notes, and share with family and friends.“After you’ve booked your trip,” Inman said, “these new tools will simplify every step of your trip once you’ve touched down—from getting around a new city to reliving every moment once you’re home.”More on Geek.com:Google Maps Highlights Bike-Sharing Stations, AvailabilityGoogle Maps Predicts How Crowded Your Train, Bus Will BeGoogle maps Highlights Restaurants’ Most Popular Disheslast_img read more

Study shows penguins attract seabirds when they corral fish

first_img Journal information: Royal Society Open Science African penguins are the only penguins that live off the shores of Africa, and they are endangered—population levels are 70 percent lower than they were just 15 years ago. Prior studies have shown that the primary reason for their decline is a decrease in their food supply—sardines and anchovies and other small fish. Humans use nets to catch the same fish, leaving little for the penguins to eat. In this new effort, the researchers sought to learn more about the eating habits of the penguins in hopes of finding a way to save them from extinction.To study the penguins, which are a type of diving bird, the researchers taped small cameras to their backs during the breeding seasons over the years 2015 to 2018. During breeding season, penguin parents take turns watching the young while the other goes foraging. This behavior made it relatively easy for the researchers to capture and affix and remove cameras.The researchers report that among other things, they found that the penguins routinely dove as deep as 30 meters when seeking prey. They also engaged with one another in corralling, a behavior often seen in dolphins, in which the penguins work together to force a school of fish to bunch closer together while also moving them closer to the shore. Doing so makes it far easier to catch a lot of fish in a very short amount of time. The researchers also report that they found that the corralling behavior of the diving birds attracted the attention of seabirds who were eager to catch and eat some of the fish the penguins drove to shallow water. The researchers noted that larger groups of penguins working together attracted larger numbers of seabirds. They suggest the efforts by the penguins may play a role in the survival abilities of some seabirds. This document is subject to copyright.

New China law targets foreigners working illegally

first_imgBEIJING (AP) – China’s national legislature adopted a new law Saturday that will target foreigners who are living and working in China illegally, the official Xinhua News Agency said, adding that the government encourages citizens to inform on suspected illegal workers.The law approved by the National People’s Congress Standing Committee now requires foreigners to obtain valid documents _ including employment certificates _ to work in China, Xinhua said. It allows for employers to be fined 10,000 yuan ($1,580) for every foreigner they hire illegally, Xinhua said.Authorities encourage Chinese citizens to report clues regarding foreigners who may work in China illegally and ask universities and language schools to share the employment information of their students, Xinhua said.For at least a decade, foreigners on short-term visas have managed to live and work in China for extended periods of time by dashing to the border and renewing their temporary permits such as tourist visas repeatedly. Sometimes Chinese employers consider it a hassle to apply for work visas for their foreign workers.Vice public security minister Yang Huanning was quoted in the Xinhua report as saying the number of foreigners working in China tripled in the last 11 years.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
