Designed for professionals but also for the use of anyone interested in freedom of expression www.damocles.org carries basic texts that guarantee press freedom along with extracts from codes of ethics. The site also offers publications that can be downloaded like the Practical Guide for Journalists and the Charter for the Safety of Journalists working in War Zones or Dangerous Areas.An “International Justice” section offers a Guide to the International Criminal Court for the use of victims (In English, French and Spanish) and advises on legal procedures to put together a case for anyone who is a victim of an international crime (“How to bring a case”).Freelance journalists covering foreign stories will find practical information on low cost insurance policies and the loan of flak jackets from Reporters Without Borders.Documents on workshops organised by the Damocles Network can also be viewed and downloaded.The Damocles Network was set up in December 2001, as a result of alarming figures: Nearly 500 journalists had been killed, murdered or gone missing because of their work over the past ten years. A large number of these crimes had gone unpunished, either for lack of serious investigation, financial means or political will. The Damocles Network set out to operate at all levels, in close co-operation with Reporters Without Borders, to put an end to impunity for those who murder and torture journalists.The network also helps improve safety and protection of journalists. It also serves as a kind of think tank on all the issues and problems confronting the media. RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar storylast_img read more

GOL: A Shameful, Fraudulent Misuse of Power, WFP in an Unholy Alliance

first_imgThe World Food Program (WFP), in flagrant (barefaced, unashamed) disregard for struggling Liberian businesses, recently awarded to a Guinean trucking firm a multimillion dollar contract for transport services to the WFP’s Ebola response to Liberia.How is that possible?  Does WFP or anyone else think that the Guinean government and people, more particularly Guinean businesspeople, would ever allow such a thing to happen in Guinea?  Definitely not!   The Guineans most certainly know better.  Though they are predominantly Muslim, they know fully well the Christian dictum that “Charity begins at home.”The big trouble is, NOT IN LIBERIA!Liberia is a friendly country, most probably the most friendly in Africa.  For which other African country so openly and so wholeheartedly welcomes foreigners and are prepared to give them every opportunity to do business and make tons of money here, while Liberians continue to live in abject poverty?This newspaper has always advocated, argued for, pleaded with the Liberian government, to do everything in its power, as a deliberate policy, to encourage and foster the development of a middle class.   Daily Observer publisher  Kenneth Y. Best, as a young Assistant Minister at the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism (MICAT) in 1972, started urging the Liberian leaders to begin the process of developing a Liberian merchant class.  His point was that it was the quickest way to lift our people out of poverty, for that is where the money is—in business and commerce.  If Liberians controlled their own commerce, they would be in the driver’s seat of their economy.When Kenneth made that 1972 call during a speech at his alma mater, Booker Washington Institute (BWI), no less a person than the eminent former Liberian Secretary of State J. Rudolph Grimes told him, “You know, you are right.”Alas! The government has paid absolutely NO attention to this advice.  This advice has over the years been consistently rejected by successive Liberian administrations, including the current one.  The Tubman government started by enunciating (pronouncing) the Open Door Policy.  This was initially hailed as a great thing because it started attracting foreign investments to the country,   But from the very start, it became a totally foreign thing, the first being Lansdell K. Christe’s Liberia Mining Company (LMC) that mined iron ore from Bomi Hills (now Tubmanburg).  But 20 years before LMC came Harvey S. Firestone, Jr’s Firestone Rubber Plantations Company (FRPC).  That was Liberia’s first major foreign investment.  Like Firestone, LMC had no local investment participation. Then came LAMCO in the late 1950s, to mine the iron ore in Mount Nimba, Nimba County; and later Bong Mining Company.  All of these were overwhelmingly foreign-owned.The government did nothing to encourage Liberians to undertake ancillary (subsidiary, secondary) businesses, such as food supply,  transportation and other logistical services. Even as late as the 2000s, especially with the coming of the current government, major concession agreements have been signed, particularly in the iron ore, oil palm and now the petroleum sectors, with no Liberian participation.  The National Oil Company (NOCAL) has auctioned off most of the oil blocks, again with little or no Liberian participation, except a very few that have not been made public.  Who knows whether these are not reserved for people close to the powers that be?  If not, why are these Liberian owners so secretive?  Is that the few remain natural resources should be shared?There is another alarming, deeply distressing reality at play:  The government owes the media, most of them tiny business enterprises, well over half a million United States dollars, but has, over several years, consistently REFUSED to pay them.  Now the government is DEMANDING that the media houses accept far less than the amount due them!  How so fraudulent and unfair, how so shamefully a misuse of power!Worse yet, several Christmases have passed, and this one, too,  is about to pass, and GOL has not aroused its conscience — if it has one — to pay the media, so that our wives and children can say “Papa na come home.”So who can blame the WFP for ditching Liberian truckers in favor of Guinean truckers?    WFP has learned well the lesson the Liberian government has taught them— “to hell with Liberian businesses.  You can come to Liberia and do as you please.”Is this government then serious about poverty reduction, which it has preached, since coming to power?Ellen’s government has only two more years in power.  As eternal optimists, we don’t think it is too late for her to make a difference.  A good place to start is to PAY THE MEDIA WHAT YOU OWE THEM AND DEMAND THAT THE WFP AGREEMENT BE REVERSED.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

SA condemns violence in Egypt

first_img15 August 2013 South Africa has joined the international community in condemning the violence used by the Egyptian security forces to disperse pro-democracy demonstrators this week. Well over 300 people were killed and more than 3 000 others injured across Egypt on Wednesday in clashes between supporters of ousted President Mohamed Morsi and the security troops, after the latter dispersed two pro-Morsi sit-ins. Egypt’s Health Ministry said 43 policemen were also killed. But it remains difficult to dig out the real number of deaths and injuries due to conflicting sources as well as continuing clashes across the country. The Egyptian security forces started the evacuation operation at Rabaa al-Adawiya Square in Cairo’s Nasr City and Nahda Square in Giza. The pro-Morsi protesters had been sitting-in there for some 45 days. After the deadly clashes, the Egyptian interim presidency announced a nationwide state of emergency for one month, while the cabinet imposed a curfew on turmoil governorates including Cairo, Giza and Alexandria. On Thursday, Pretoria urged all parties in Egypt to exercise restraint and resolve their differences through dialogue, adding that the loss of life diminished the democratic aspirations expressed by millions of Egyptian voters last year. The South African government called on the interim authority “to end the bloody actions against its own people, and to conduct a credible and transparent judicial investigation against those who committed the massacres since 30 June 2013,” the Department of International Relations and Cooperation said in a statement on Thursday. It also called for the unconditional release all political detainees, and for the launch of “a genuine and comprehensive transition process so as to allow for the return to constitutional normalcy and democratic legitimacy”. Pretoria reiterated the importance of national reconciliation as paving the way for peace and stability in Egypt, saying that South Africa remained ready to share its own experiences and lessons in this regard. “An Egyptian-led, all-inclusive negotiated process remains the only option for Egypt to get out of the present impasse,” the department said. On Thursday, International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane discussed the situation in Egypt with her counterparts in the region on the sidelines of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Summit currently under way in Malawi. The department said they had agreed that peace and stability in Egypt was crucial to the North African region and the African continent as a whole. Source: SAnews.gov.za-Xinhualast_img read more

Biofuel Reallocation Possible

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Todd Neeley DTN Staff Reporter and By Chris Clayton DTN Ag Policy EditorOMAHA (DTN) — Recent media reports outlining a possible agreement on the Renewable Fuel Standard may sound promising for the biofuels industry and agriculture, but Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, told agriculture journalists on Tuesday that he’ll hold off celebrating just yet.Reuters and Bloomberg recently reported details of a tentative agreement between biofuel and agriculture interests and President Donald Trump following a meeting at the White House.Under the agreement, if true, EPA would account for biofuel gallons waived from the RFS through small-refinery exemptions, in addition to other concessions.However, the agreement could look much different after senators from oil-producing states meet at the White House, perhaps sometime this week.“Before I would say the president’s delivered, and since EPA is writing it, putting it on paper, I’m going to wait and see what EPA does,” Grassley said.“You know what I’ve said about EPA being a tool of big oil. I would speculate that the president’s tired of dealing with this. He’s more or less said so many times. Even back when we were in the White House talking about E15, it just seemed like he could never get to the bottom of the ethanol issue, or he couldn’t satisfy both big oil and the farmers, and he was trying to do that. Maybe that’s where he has some shortcomings trying to satisfy everybody.”Grassley said the administration presented a 13-point plan on the biofuels issue during a recent White House meeting he attended along with other lawmakers.“We went in with a simpler plan that, if it comes out on paper the way that the White House seemed to agree with us, then I would say we have a win, win situation,” Grassley said.“A win for maybe even small refineries legitimately getting a waiver. It’s something that ought to make sure that any waived gallons are put back in. So when the government says we’re going to be allowed to use 15 billion gallons mixed with petroleum, it’s going to be 15 billion gallons. Instead of like with these waivers it would have ended up being 13.6 [billion gallons]. The small refineries have a victory. They can get as many refineries waived that they want to get waived.”The agriculture and biofuels industries were enraged when the Trump administration approved 31 additional small-refinery exemptions on Aug. 9. At the time, many industry representatives began to question Trump’s support for agriculture and biofuels.BIODIESEL SHUT OUTAmong the industries waiting for RFS resolution and relief is biodiesel. To this point the biodiesel industry has been largely shut out of the negotiations but is waiting to see what the White House will eventually propose.“We’re pleased the president has heard the outcry, primarily from the Midwest, both from biofuels producers and those in the ag industry, and is responding to that,” said Kurt Kovarik, vice president of federal affairs for the National Biodiesel Board.NBB leaders and farmer leaders on the American Soybean Association met with reporters Tuesday in Washington, D.C., to talk about the RFS negotiations.The biodiesel board wants to “return integrity to the RFS” blend volumes in the law and set by EPA, as well as ensure biodiesel volumes will continue to grow. The small-refinery exemptions granted have set the biodiesel industry backward.“We are uniquely harmed as a result of those small-refinery exemptions, and we need a specific remedy that makes our industry whole,” Kovarik said.The biodiesel industry grew from less than 100 million gallons produced in 2005 to a peak of 2.9 billion gallons in 2016, Kovarik said. The industry now finds itself spending most of its efforts “fighting an entrenched oil industry” rather than focusing on growing more volume and increasing markets, he said.“We fight every day to maintain the viability of the industry through the policies that are in place now,” Kovarik said. “If they were implemented as Congress intended, we would be growing volumes and fighting less.”TRADE SITUATIONThe trade situation has focused the American Soybean Association directors even more on the small-refinery exemptions for biodiesel because there are significantly more soybean stocks in the country as a result. ASA leaders also are turning more attention to state policies, looking for ways to mimic what Minnesota has done by raising its state mandate to 20% biodiesel blends.“In Iowa, I think this latest round with the SREs and the volume being very negligible, there’s getting more traction from our local representatives and state senators to look at what Minnesota is doing and add on to our tax policy and maybe do a program similar to Minnesota,” said Morey Hill, an Iowa farmer and director for the American Soybean Association.Biodiesel volume set for 2020 is 2.43 billion gallons. If EPA grants another 30 SREs without reallocation, the volume of biodiesel mandated under the RFS would be lower in 2020 than it is now. Under the waivers granted in August, the biodiesel industry lost 250 million gallons of volume.Currently, the biodiesel industry domestic capacity is about 2.6 billion gallons, and the industry is producing at a shade above 70% of capacity. So there is room to increase capacity by nearly 800 million gallons just by existing plants increasing production.Tim Keaveney, executive vice president for Hero Bx, which owns biodiesel plants in Alabama, Iowa, Illinois, New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, said the company invested heavily in biodiesel facilities as a direct result of the RFS. When volumes are lost, “That puts a serious threat on our investment,” Keaveney said.Biodiesel industry leaders also pushed back on the argument by petroleum refiners that any increase in biodiesel volumes would have to be met by imports.“That case simply isn’t the truth,” Keaveney said. “Investments are going forward in the United States and will go forward in the United States as long as there is a policy going forward and investors know what that is. We have the raw materials in the United States to continue to be a growing marketplace.”The petroleum industry and its backers on Capitol Hill have criticized USDA’s involvement in negotiations, particularly USDA Deputy Secretary Steve Censky, who was the long-time CEO of the American Soybean Association before being nominated to his current post. Yet, former lobbyists and attorneys for the refining industry have found their way into EPA posts to influence the direction of the RFS.“USDA has a role in agriculture, right? It’s in the name,” said Donnell Rehagen, CEO of the National Biodiesel Board. “It makes all the sense in the world that the president would rely on USDA to come to the conclusion that he should on policy decisions that affect agriculture and biodiesel.”Rehagen later said the biodiesel industry has been trying to have a conversation with EPA for several years about small-refinery exemptions and implementation of the RFS, but that hasn’t happened.REPORTED AGREEMENTTrump reportedly has tentatively agreed to reallocating biofuel gallons lost to small-refinery exemptions to the RFS over a three-year period, starting in 2020.A report by Bloomberg citing anonymous sources said Trump tentatively agreed to the action as part of a big package for the agriculture and ethanol industries, following a meeting last Thursday with Grassley and fellow Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst, as well as Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.Reuters reported on Monday the plan would require the EPA to calculate a three-year rolling average of the total biofuels exempted since 2016 via small-refinery exemptions. The agency would then add the average to annual renewable volume obligations in the RFS.In addition, the agreement also would include increasing 2020 RFS volumes by about 1 billion gallons. That would include 500 million for corn-based ethanol and 500 million gallons for biodiesel and other advanced biofuels. In 2016, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled the EPA illegally cut RFS volumes by 500 million gallons.In a letter to Trump last Thursday, a group of eight senators from oil-producing states said they remain opposed to reallocation.“Any reallocation of volumes from statutory small-refinery exemptions or increase in renewable volume obligations for the 2020 compliance year would have a costly impact on consumers, the American refining sector, and thousands of well-paying, blue-collar jobs in our home states,” the senators wrote.The letter was signed by Sens. Ted Cruz, James Inhofe, Pat Toomey, James Risch, John Barrasso, Michael Enzi, Shelley Moore Capito and John Kennedy.Frank Maisano, senior principal at Bracewell LLP in Washington, which represents refining interests, told DTN the senators are on tap to meet with Trump sometime this week.PRESIDENT SURPRISEDGrassley said that, based on his conversations with the administration, he believes Trump was surprised at rural America’s reaction to the latest 31 waivers.“So then he asked people close to agriculture and close to ethanol to respond to what he thought was a legitimate complaint, that he was hearing one thing from soybean people, another thing from corn people, another thing from ethanol, and ethanol industry has two or three different points of view, and with biodiesel,” Grassley said.“So you got different people pounding the president. He said, ‘I need to know what the industry wants. So can you get the industry together?’”All sides were brought to the table and within 48 hours came up with something that was presented to the president, Grassley said.Todd Neeley can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @toddneeleyDTNChris Clayton can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @ChrisClaytonDTN(AG)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Google Disses Motorola Products – And Hires Guy Kawasaki

first_imgRelated Posts Google’s short-term goals for its Motorola smartphone division are two-fold: clear the rubble on the runway and build for the future. When it comes to runway, Google is still dealing with the product pipeline that it inherited from Motorola when the acquisition received final approval by regulatory bodies way back in February 2012. Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology Conference this week, Google chief financial officer Patrick Pichette said Google still has to deal with 18 months of product pipeline that it has to “drain right now.” That product pipeline was on full display in September when the latest Droid Razr devices were released. The reaction to the Droid Razr HD, Razr Maxx HD and the Razr M was a universal yawn, with all three devices seen as no more than iterative updates to the aging Razr series as Google continues to liquidate Motorola’s existing design and assets. (See also The New Motoroloa: Google’s Hardware Division Steps Into The Future.)Even the next new smartphones that will soon come out of Motorola are not anything to write home about. Pichette seems well aware of that fact, calling them, “not really to the standards that what Google would say is ‘wow’ — innovative, transformative,” according to a report from The Verge. Essentially, Google has to clear away years of Motorola mediocrity, past and future, before it can really build a device that will stand out as the quintessential Android smartphone. That is where Guy Kawasaki comes in.Kawasaki Joins Google To Advise MotorolaGuy Kawasaki – venture capitalist, publisher and early Apple evangelist – loves Android. We learned this in December, and heard more details when he sat down with ReadWrite editor-in-chief Dan Lyons for a ReadWrite Mix event in San Francisco last December. The revelation that Kawasaki, such a staunch Apple advocate for so long, was an Android fanboy was shocking to many people in the pro-iPhone camp. (See also Shock And Awe: Apple Legend Guy Kawasaki has Become A Hardcore Android Fan.)Apparently, his devotion to Android runs deeper than he originally let on.Kawasaki tweeted on Wednesday that he will be joining Google as an advisor to Motorola. Kawasaki will focus on “product design, user interface, marketing, and social media,” according to a post on his Facebook page.“Motorola reminds me of the Apple of 1998: a pioneer in its market segment, engineering-driven, and ripe for innovation. I believe that great products can change everything. For example, the creation of the iMac G3 (the Macs that came in colors such as Bondi, Strawberry, Blueberry, Lime, and Grape) was a pivotal event for Apple,” Kawasaki wrote. What’s Next For Motorola?Between Pichette and Kawasaki, we’re getting a pretty good idea of the direction of Motorola under Google’s stewardship:The first thing that needs to be done is to clear the pipeline.The next is to employ smart designers and idea people like Kawasaki to create transformative products under the Motorola name. Will that be the mysterious “Motorola X” that Google has supposedly been working on?If we date Motorola’s 18 months of product pipeline from the time when the acquisition was approved by the U.S. Department Of Justice, Google still has nearly six months or so worth of Motorola supply chain to suffer through. It would not come as a surprise to see at least one more iteration of the Razr series from MotoGoo before we we find out what Motorola-under-Google really has up its sleeve. After all this time, it had better be something that will make us all say “Wow!”Top image: Motorola Droid Razr M by Dan Rowinski dan rowinski Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Tags:#Android#Google#Guy Kawasaki#Motorola center_img Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more

Pregnancy Histories and Community Education in Peru

MHTF is supporting their project, Using Pregnancy Histories to Help Mothers, based in Peru. More information on MHTF supported projects can be found here. All photos courtesy of Laura Altobelli.Written by: Future GenerationsSixty-three Women Leaders from highland Andean communities (“comunidades alto-andinos”) have been selected by the women in their own communities, and have started their training in maternal-neonatal-child health using an experimental training design. Each of the four training groups has 13 to 19 Women Leaders that meet monthly. The first round of workshops in October was an introduction to the program and the topic of pregnancy with a focus on danger signs, nutrition and preventive home care and hygiene during pregnancy, birth planning, and community organization for evacuation of obstetrical emergencies. Two of the four training groups had an additional focus using the Pregnancy History methodology. One of our challenges: Women Leaders bring their small children with them at our invitation so they don’t worry so much about having to get home quickly. It helps to hire a child-care person to distract the toddlers while their mom is in the workshop. Another challenge: all of our training is conducted in the Quechua language. It helps to have the workshops tape-recorded and transcribed so that non-Quechua speakers (such as the P.I.) can have access to the proceedings of the workshops for later review and analysis.Two remarkable events occurred this quarter, one good and one bad. The good one was the spontaneous formation of an Association of Women Leaders by one of the intervention groups. The idea was launched by two Women Leaders, and a long discussion resulted in their decision to form the association and elect a President, Vice-President, and Secretary. This is similar to the type of male-dominated community councils found in every Andean community. Women’s empowerment at work! The second event was a death by hemorrhage of a 23-year-old woman during her first birthing. She lived in one of the easy-access “low communities” next to the main road in the valley, a 10-minute ride to the Urcos Health Center, and therefore not one of our project communities. Investigation of the maternal death suggests that certain older women in the community refused to allow help-seeking during the home birth. As a result of this tragedy, the Urcos Health Center asked the community to select two Women Leaders and requested that Future Generations include them in our training workshops on maternal, neonatal, child health. This death has provided for much relevant discussion and learning during our training workshops.Share this:last_img read more
