Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC [Santo Domingo, 5 de Noviembre del 2013] Más de 270 personas de los distintos ámbitos sociales se constituyeron hoy  en un “Comité de Solidaridad con las Personas Desnacionalizadas” por la sentencia del Tribunal Constitucional dominicano de septiembre pasado que dispone revocar la nacionalidad a los hijos de inmigrantes ilegales que fueron inscritos en el registro civil hasta 1929.Rechazando la división de la sociedad dominicana por la siembra de odios y enconos, los voceros del comité proclamaron una disposición constructiva para unir voluntades y  buscar una solución constitucional y humana a la situación de decenas de miles de ciudadanos y ciudadanas que serían empujadas a un gueto o apartheid.La declaración constitutiva presentada en una rueda de prensa alienta “la sensibilidad expresada por el presidente Danilo Medina, quien reconoce la necesidad de encontrar una solución al grave problema que representan las personas desnacionalizadas”.Indica que la sentencia pretende una aplicación de una norma en perjuicio de miles de personas, violentando el principio universal de irretroactividad de la ley, ratificado en el artículo 110 de la Constitución vigente que reza: “La ley sólo dispone para el porvenir. No tiene efecto retroactivo sino cuando sea favorable al que esté subjúdice o cumpliendo condena. En ningún caso los poderes públicos o la ley podrán afectar la seguridad jurídica derivada de situaciones establecidas conforme a una legislación anterior”.El documento sostiene que “Para excluir a millares de ciudadanos y ciudadanas de la nacionalidad dominicana, el TC reinterpretó las constituciones dominicanas que hasta la del 2010 otorgaban la nacionalidad a todas las personas nacidas en territorio nacional, con excepción de los hijos de diplomáticos y “los que están de tránsito”, extendiendo esto último por tiempo indefinido, en contradicción con el Reglamento de Migración 279 del 12 de mayo de 1939, que limitaba la condición de tránsito a diez días.”El comité de solidaridad afirma que “Estamos frente a un grave drama humano que rebasa los límites de la inmigración y que, aún si faltare el derecho, obligaría a una solución que evite la constitución de un apartheid de cientos de miles de personas, el cual se trasmitiría indefinidamente a sus descendientes. Afecta a seres humanos cuyo vínculo fundamental es la sociedad dominicana, que no se podrían ir para ningún otro país”.Resalta “la perspectiva en que se coloca a la nación dominicana de espaldas a principios y cuestiones básicas y sensibles de la convivencia universal marcada por los movimientos migratorios, lo que nos expone a condenas internacionales ya anticipadas por la Comisión Interamericana de los Derechos Humanos y por la jurisprudencia de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos”.Y sostiene que “Las repercusiones podrían afectar a la extensa comunidad dominicana en numerosos países, inclusive en aquellos donde nuestros nacionales luchan por regularizar su estatus de inmigrantes. Por fortuna no se conoce un solo caso donde hoy día se pretenda despojar de su nueva o doble nacionalidad a los hijos nacidos en el exterior de nuestros emigrantes indocumentados. Aunque originalmente fuimos una nación de inmigrantes, hoy día somos netamente de emigrantes y sus remesas han sido y son sostén fundamental de la estabilidad económica nacional.”Al anunciar una serie de actividades masivas con las comunidades, como conciertos y asambleas locales, y de búsqueda de consenso y voluntad en los sectores sociales influyentes, incluyendo iglesias, empresariado, universidades, facultades de derecho y grupos de juritas, los voceros del Comité sostuvieron que la solución al conflicto “está dada en la Constitución actual que reconoce la  ciudadanía a todo el que la hubiese obtenido antes de su entrada en vigencia el 26 de enero del 2010”.  El documento reconoce que esa misma Constitución excluyó de la nacionalidad a los hijos de quienes residan ilegalmente en el territorio nacional, pero también a partir de su entrada en vigencia, por lo que tras proclamar ”una patria amplia para todos los hijos e hijas de esta tierra a quienes se les reconoció la nacionalidad” formula un llamado a “concentrar la atención en solucionar los problemas migratorios poniendo el acento en limitar los flujos inmigratorios del presente en vez de una absurda persecución del pasado”.La presentación del Comité estuvo encabezada por sus promotores el obispo episcopal Julio César Holguín, el jesuita Mario Serrano, y los profesionales Carmen Amelia Cedeño, Miguel Ceara Hatton, Juan Bolívar Díaz, Pavel Isa Contreras, Wilfredo Lozano, Manuel Robles, Cristóbal Rodríguez, Ana Selman, la diputada Guadalupe Valdez y el cantautor Víctor Víctor.Entre las personalidades que suscriben la declaración constitutiva del Comité figuran los escritores residentes en el exterior Julia Alvarez, Junot Díaz, Silvio Torres Saillant y Carlos Julio Báez. Los empresarios Franklin Báez Brugal, Fernando Capellán, Georges Santoni Recio, José Yude Michelén y Mario Bergés, así como los artistas Angel Haché, Pavel Núñez y Roldán Mármol.También firman los expertos constitucionalistas Olivo Rodríguez Huerta y Nassef Perdomo Cordero, así como los juristas Francisco Alvarez Valdez, David Alvarez Martín, Emigdio Valenzuela, Carlos R. Salcedo y Andrés Astacio Polanco.Entre los intelectuales aparecen Rafael Emilio Yunén, Hugo Tolentino, Andrés L. Mateo, Avelino Stanley, Chiqui Vicioso, Angela Hernández y Manuel Matos Moquete. También los religiosos Telésforo Isaac, Luis Rosario, Abraham Apolinario, Eduardo García Tamayo y Milton Amparo.Decenas de reconocidos profesionales forman también parte del comité, entre ellos Bernardo Defilló, Jacquiline Malagón, Enmanuel Castillo, Rosario Espinal, Hamlet Hermann, Mu-Yien Sang Ben, Arismendi Díaz, Isidoro Santana, Rafael Toribio, Ada Wiscovitch, César Pérez, Cristóbal Valdez, Miriam Díaz, Luis Shecker,  Jeffrey Lizardo, Melba Barnett,  Bernardo Castellanos, Roberto Alvarez, Rosalina Perdomo, Alberto Rodríguez, Elizabeth Puig, Gustavo González, Francisco Abate, Javier Cabreja, Argelia Tejada Yanguela, Amparo Arango, Pengsien Rafael Sang Ben, Frank Báez Evertz  y Domingo Abréu.Y entre los periodistas figuran Homero Figueroa, Roberto Cavada, Miguel Guerrero, Fausto Rosario,  Brinella Fernández, Ramón Colombo, Patricia Solano, Ana Mitila Lora, Gustavo Olivo, Melvin Peña  y Edwin Ruiz.

En síntesis que se declararía extranjeros a personas que podrían tener hasta ocho décadas de nacidas en el país, con raíces sociales y humanas insustituibles.En alta proporción, los expertos en derecho constitucional y prestigiosos juristas han coincidido en calificar la sentencia del TC como violatoria de principios fundamentales del derecho internacional, de la Constitución de la República y el código civil así como de la misma ley orgánica constitutiva de esa corte. Por igual reconocidas instituciones nacionales e internacionales han rechazado las conclusiones del dictamen considerándolas violatorias de tratados suscritos por el Estado dominicano como la Declaración Universal de los Derechos Humanos, la Convención Americana de Derechos Humanos y la Convención sobre Derechos del Niño.Para excluir a millares de ciudadanos y ciudadanas de la nacionalidad dominicana, el TC reinterpretó las constituciones dominicanas que hasta la del 2010 otorgaban la nacionalidad a todas las personas nacidas en territorio nacional, con excepción de los hijos de diplomáticos y “los que están de tránsito”, extendiendo esto último por tiempo indefinido, en contradicción con el Reglamento de Migración 279 del 12 de mayo de 1939, que limitaba la condición de tránsito a diez días.Lo que es peor, la sentencia pretende una aplicación retroactiva de una norma en perjuicio de miles de personas, violentando el principio universal de irretroactividad de la ley, ratificado en el artículo 110 de la Constitución vigente que reza: “La ley sólo dispone para el porvenir. No tiene efecto retroactivo sino cuando sea favorable al que esté subjúdice o cumpliendo condena. En ningún caso los poderes públicos o la ley podrán afectar la seguridad jurídica derivada de situaciones establecidas conforme a una legislación anterior”.Es obvio que la Constitución del 2010 que nos rige, en su numeral 3, reitera la exclusión de la nacionalidad a los hijos de diplomáticos y personas en tránsito en el país, agregando a quienes “residan ilegalmente en territorio dominicano”, pero su numeral 2 no permite dudas al reconocer la ciudadanía a “quienes gocen de la nacionalidad dominicana antes de la entrada en vigencia de esta Constitución”.Estamos ante un despojo masivo de la nacionalidad sin precedentes en ninguna nación democrática. Los hechos similares que registra la historia han sido la antesala de algunas de sus mayores y más lacerantes injusticias. Esos ciudadanos y ciudadanas no asaltaron las oficialías civiles para inscribirse como dominicanos. Los registraron porque era la interpretación que prevalecía de la Constitución, reformada al efecto en el 2010.No escapa a nuestras consideraciones la impracticabilidad del mandato del TC de identificar a todos los hijos de extranjeros indocumentados que pudieron obtener la nacionalidad desde 1929, dado que una proporción importante de los libros de registros están deteriorados o han desaparecido y que miles de esos ciudadanos  y ciudadanas  han fallecido o han transitado al exterior con documentación dominicana. ¿Invalidaremos retrospectivamente todos sus actos civiles?Como hasta ahora, la forma más fácil de identificarlos sería por los apellidos “de origen extranjero” cuando acuden a una oficialía a solicitar copia de sus actas, lo que afecta fundamentalmente a los más jóvenes, porque los mayores, que ya tienen cédula de identidad, pocas veces necesitan el acta de nacimiento, sobre todo si son pobres.Para ejecutar la masiva exclusión se requerirían muchos años, enormes recursos y sobre todo una gran cacería nacional de personas que afectaría no sólo a los de ascendencia haitiana, sino también cocolos, chinos, árabes, judíos, norteamericanos, españoles, franceses, y de muchas otras nacionalidades. Eso sólo serviría para dividir y sembrar  odios y resentimientos en contradicción con la esencia misma del pueblo dominicano.A nadie debe escapar la perspectiva en que se coloca a la nación dominicana de espaldas a principios y cuestiones básicas y sensibles de la convivencia universal marcada por los movimientos migratorios, lo que nos expone a condenas internacionales ya anticipadas por la Comisión Interamericana de los Derechos Humanos y por la jurisprudencia de la Corte Interamericana de Derechos Humanos.Las repercusiones podrían afectar a la extensa comunidad dominicana en numerosos países, inclusive en aquellos donde nuestros nacionales luchan por regularizar su estatus de inmigrantes. Por fortuna no se conoce un solo caso donde hoy día se pretenda despojar de su nueva o doble nacionalidad a los hijos nacidos en el exterior de nuestros emigrantes indocumentados. Aunque originalmente fuimos una nación de inmigrantes, hoy día somos netamente de emigrantes y sus remesas han sido y son sostén fundamental de la estabilidad económica nacional.Estamos frente a un grave drama humano que rebasa los límites de la inmigración y que, aún si faltare el derecho, obligaría a una solución que evite la constitución de un apartheid de cientos de miles de personas, el cual se trasmitiría indefinidamente a sus descendientes. Afecta a seres humanos cuyo vínculo fundamental es la sociedad dominicana, que no se podrían ir para ningún otro país.Alentamos la sensibilidad expresada por el presidente Danilo Medina, quien reconoce la necesidad de encontrar una solución al grave problema que representan las personas desnacionalizadas.Creemos que la solución está dada en la Constitución actual que reconoce la ciudadanía a todo el que la hubiese obtenido antes de su entrada en vigencia, el 26 de enero del 2010.Proclamamos una patria amplia para todos los hijos e hijas de esta tierra a quienes se les reconoció la nacionalidad, al tiempo que reclamamos concentrar la atención en solucionar los problemas migratorios en base a la nueva visión concertada por las entidades sociales y políticas, poniendo el acento en limitar los flujos inmigratorios del presente en vez de una absurda persecución del pasado.Por todo lo anterior y muchas otras razones que la economía de palabras nos impone, los suscriptores nos constituimos en un Comité Nacional en Solidaridad con los Desnacionalizados.

It represents some 15 million hugely influential consumers, offering information and advice to over five million people, a retail estate of over 500 shops carrying out nearly 20 million customer transactions annually and supplies energy and insurance products to over a million customers – giving the Group a major presence in markets where older people are often poorly served.The new organisation’s mission is to improve the quality of later life and to drive transformational change in a rapidly ageing society. By 2025 more than a third of the UK’s population will be over 55. Despite this fact, pervasive ageism continues while far too many people are unable to access products and services which allow them to fully enjoy later life. Advertisementcenter_img The new organisation will come under one new brand name in 2010 and intends to tackle the issues and market failures by shaping public policy through high-profile campaigns. It also plans to build on its leading edge position as a provider of advice, products and services tailored to the older marketplace.Karmarama and Kitcatt Nohr will be developing joint plans to develop the profile of the new organisation as it seeks to integrate its marketing strategies under a single Group structure. Activity will include above and below the line campaigns across all media as well as developing work to run across all customer touch points including all of the Group’s 520 high-street shops which currently carry out 20 million customer transactions each year. The agencies will also be developing an ongoing supporter acquisition and retention strategy.Nicola Mendelsohn, Chairman of Karmarama commented:“The merged organization has a truly exciting mission which will build on the rich heritage of the two previous organisations. The task ahead is hugely important – this is an organisation which will seek to improve the lives of the entire older generation. As such, we are absolutely thrilled to be working with such a fantastic and high-profile client with such ambition and ideas.”Marc Nohr, Managing Partner at Kitcatt Nohr Alexander Shaw added:“The coming together of Age Concern and Help the Aged presents a huge opportunity to build a major new force – not only in the charity sector, but across the realms of local information, advice and service delivery as well as through tailored commercial activity. With the demographic tide moving ever older, this is a cause whose time has come. We are proud to be selected as partners in their endeavor.”Lisa McCormack, General Manager of Brand, Age Concern and Help the Aged, commenting on the appointment, said:“This is a major new phase for the merged Help the Aged and Age Concern and we are pleased to be working with such an enthusiastic and committed team.“Throughout the pitch process, Kitcatt Nohr Alexander Shaw and Karmarama demonstrated real vigour in conveying an understanding of our vision, the challenges at hand and our commercial activities. We believe they are the right partners to help deliver on our exciting new mission.”ENDSKitcatt Nohr background:Integrated creative agency, Kitcatt Nohr Alexander Shaw (abbreviated Kitcatt Nohr, not KNAS) launched in January 2002 and is fully owned by Creative Partner Paul Kitcatt, Managing Partner Marc Nohr, Client Partner Vonnie Alexander and Chairman Jeremy Shaw.The agency’s clients include Age UK, Toyota GB, Lexus, Glenfiddich, Britannia, NS&I, John Lewis, Waitrose, the Department of Health, WWF-UK and NSPCC.For more information please contact;Vonnie Alexander, Client Partner at Kitcatt Nohr on 0207 012 3950Julia Conroy, Head of Marketing at Kitcatt Nohr on 020 7012 3989 or jconroy@kitcattnohr.comAli Waters, Director, AWPR Ltd T: 07947 472578/ awpr@aliwaters.co.ukOr visit www.kitcattnohr.comKarmarama background:Full service advertising agency, Karmarama was founded in 2000 and is fully owned by Creative Partner Dave Buonagiudi, Managing Partner Ben Bilboul, Planning Partner Sid McGrath and Chairman & Partner Nicola Mendelsohn.The agency’s clients include Nintendo, Nationwide Insurance, lastminute.com, Unilever, The History Channel, Costa Coffee and Coca-Cola.For further information please contact:Hannah Matthews, Marketing Director at Karmarama on 07870 116632 or hannahm@karmarama.comOr visit www.karmarama.comAt Age Concern and Help the AgedPaul Bates020 7239 1941/07730 912524Paul.bates@helptheaged.org.uk Howard Lake | 18 August 2009 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Middle-East/North Africa

first_img 2012 ­– Year Two of the new Arab worldRead in Arabic (بالعربية) January 30, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Middle-East/North Africa Help by sharing this information News RSF_en Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 June 8, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance Receive email alerts to go further “Arab spring” uprisings caused a lot of movements in the Press Freedom Index in 2011 and the situation was still very mixed in 2012, with countries where governments have fallen, countries where they still survive but are facing uprisings, and countries where, by dint of compromises and promises, they have managed to assuage the demands for change.Syria and Bahrain at the bottom of the indexSyria is ranked 176th in the index, fourth from last. Of all the ranked countries, it is the one that saw the most attacks on freedom of information. Journalists are targeted by all the parties to the conflict – the regular army and the various opposition factions – who are waging an information war.Bahrain (165th) rose eight places, after limited improvement. The government crackdown continued in 2012 but was slightly less violent than the previous year, when the country plunged 29 places. In all, Bahrain has fallen 66 places in the space of four years and is now in the bottom 20.Fertile revolutions for freedom of information?After the fall of dictators, the promises of media pluralism and independence are not always sufficiently translated into action.Libya (131st, +23) rose more than 20 places. This jump was due to the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi’s 42-year regime and its positive impact on freedom of information. Libya’s ranking the year before was affected by all the violations in 2011, when Gaddafi was still clinging to power. The improvements nonetheless need to be confirmed by the inclusion of freedom of information in the constitution and the adoption of laws guaranteeing this freedom and providing real protection for journalists and safeguards for media pluralism and independence.Two years after Ben Ali’s fall, Tunisia (138th) slipped four places, after jumping more than 30 places in 2011. Why? Because there was an increase in attacks on journalists in the first quarter of 2012 and because the authorities have maintained a judicial void by delaying the implementation of decree-laws regulating the media. This allowed them to arbitrarily appoint people to run the state-owned media. Furthermore, politicians often refer to journalists and news media with contempt or even hate.Egypt (158th) rose eight places, two years after Hosni Mubarak’s departure. This was a slight improvement on 2011, when violence against media personnel caused the country to plummet 39 places from 127th. Journalists and netizens continue to be the targets of physical attacks, arrests and trials and one was fatally injured in December. Shortly after winning elections, the Muslim Brotherhood appointed new executives and editors to run the state newspapers, which had a major impact on their editorial policies. The constitution adopted at the end of 2012 contains vaguely-worded provisions that clearly threaten freedoms. News media can still be closed or seized on the orders of a judge.Yemen (171st, +2) continued to languish in the bottom ten. There have been no legislative changes in the year since Abd Rab Mansour Hadi took over as president. Journalists are still exposed to physical attacks, prosecution and even jail sentences. A bill on privately-owned broadcasts and electronic media with a number of draconian provisions, which was submitted to parliament in 2012, has not been totally abandoned.Countries “spared” by Arab springs rein in news providersBuffeted by social and economic protests, the Sultanate of Oman (141st) sank 24 places, the biggest fall in the Middle East and North Africa in 2012. Some 50 netizens and bloggers were prosecuted on lèse-majesté or cyber-crime charges in 2012. No fewer than 28 were convicted in December alone, in trials that trampled on defence rights. The authorities gave promises in response to demands for political, social and economic change but did not carry them out.A repressive royal decree in September was one of the reasons why Jordan (134th, -6) fell. The decree changed the press law and drastically restricted freedom of information, especially for online media, brushing aside all the reform promises that the government gave at the height of the popular unrest in 2011. Journalists are being tried before military courts, especially when they criticize the royal family.Algeria (125th, -3) fell a few places because journalists were the targets of both physical attacks and judicial proceedings, and because of an increase in economic pressure on independent media. More than a year after parliament passed a law that is supposed to abolish the state’s broadcasting monopoly, there are still no privately-owned TV stations because a regulatory authority, an essential prior condition, has still not been created. So, for the time being, the new law is nothing but window dressing.The ranking of Morocco (136th, +2) is stable. Media reform was announced after Prime Minister Abdelilah Benkirane took office in November 2011 but his government is dragging its feet on the promised changes, especially decriminalization of media offences. Decisions on such matters as the granting and withdrawal of accreditation are often arbitrary and lacking in transparency.Palestine (146th) is still in the bottom quarter but it rose eight places. An improvement in relations between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas has had a positive impact on freedom of information and the working environment for journalists.Iraq (150th) rose two places, but this followed a fall of 22 places last year. The security situation for journalists continues to be very worrying, with three killed in connection with their work in 2012 and seven killed in 2011. Journalists are constantly obstructed.There were only slight changes in the rankings of Saudi Arabia (163rd, -5), Kuwait (77th, +1) and the United Arab Emirates (114th, -2).Lebanon (101st) fell eight places, after its media became more polarized by neighbouring Syria’s civil war. Its journalists are exposed to arbitrary detention and mistreatment.The 20-place fall of Israel (112nd) is due to the actions of the Israel Defence Forces in the Palestinian Territories – actions that used to be given a separate ranking in the index under the label of “Israel extraterritorial”. During Operation “Pillar of Defence” in November 2012, IDF deliberately targeted journalists and buildings housing media that are affiliated to Hamas or support it. And the arbitrary arrest and detention of Palestinian journalists is still commonplace. Israeli journalists meanwhile enjoy real freedom of expression but military censorship continues to be a structural problem.Relatives held hostage in IranSomalia’s fall in the index due to the many deaths of journalists there in 2012 allowed Iran (174th) to rise one place. Its print and broadcast media and news websites are all controlled by the Ministry of Intelligence and the Revolutionary Guards. The authorities have internationalized their repression by making hostages out of the relatives of Iranian journalists who work abroad or in Iran for foreign news media. The Islamic Republic is one of the world’s five biggest prisons for news and information providers.

first_img August 28, 2017 US — #WeeklyAddress August 21 – 27: “Incitement, plain and simple”: attacks on media transcend Trump’s rhetoric Receive email alerts United StatesAmericas WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists News June 7, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en United StatesAmericas Follow the news on United States News June 3, 2021 Find out more Trump targets “dishonest media” during Phoenix rally President Donald Trump criticized the media during a significant portion of his 72 minute campaign rally in Phoenix, Arizona, blaming them for race relations in the United States. The rally, which was held on Tuesday, August 22, was his first since the violent protests in Charlottesville. “For the most part, all they do is complain,” Trump said. “These are really, really dishonest people and they’re bad people and I really think they don’t like our country. I really believe that,” he continued. His remark provoked a response from the legendary journalist Tom Brokaw, who tweeted on August 24: “mr president, i’ve been a journalist 50 yrs. Never met one who didn’t love USA. Many risk their lives reporting on US values. Cheap shot” Trump continued to defend his own statements on the Charlottesville protests, saying “the only people giving voice to these hate groups is the media itself and the fake news.” He riled the crowd up and pointed back at the press, invigorating the audience to chant “CNN sucks,” among other things. Cecilia Vega, who was covering the rally for ABC News, described Trump’s speech as “incitement, plain and simple.” She continued: “It really feels like a matter of time, frankly, before someone gets hurt.” Neither CNN nor ABC reported any physical threats against them. Reporters get caught in the crossfire covering protests in Berkeley, Phoenix While President Trump spoke inside the Phoenix Convention Center on Tuesday, August 22, confrontation between anti-Trump protesters and law enforcement resulted in the police’s deployment of pepper spray, smoke, tear gas, and stun grenades into the crowd. At least 17 reporters from the Arizona Republic “were caught up in the gas or spray and the aftermath — burning eyes, coughing, vomiting, burning skin,” according to Nicole Carroll, editor and vice president of news at the Republic. The next morning, Carroll reported that she received an email from “M Eliot” that said: “It is refreshing to know that the most powerful politician in the world is not kowtowing to the backbiters you in the Fake News Media have become. The battle lines have been drawn.” When Carroll responded asking for more information, she received no response. Some journalists were reportedly assaulted or harassed at a protest in opposition to what was set to be a far-right, Anti-Marxist demonstration in Berkeley, California, on Sunday, August 27. Though the “Say No to Marxism” protest was cancelled, thousands of locals, peaceful protesters, anarchists, and antifascists showed up at Martin Luther King Jr. Civic Park to demonstrate against the small groups of right-wing protesters that were gathering. KTVU FOX2 reporter Leigh Martinez was one of the journalists shoved by a counter-protester while filming the demonstration. Others were harassed by antifa and anarchists who, according to the San Francisco Chronicle’s Lizzie Johnson, shouted things like, “Take his camera, take his phone!” at journalists. Propublica reporters barraged with threats following reporting on hate groups, trolls Reporters at ProPublica received a volume of attacks so high that on Tuesday, August 22, the entire staff lost access to incoming mail for more than five hours, according to The New York Times. The harassment came after the investigative news website published an article on Friday, August 19, about the ways major technology companies like Paypal and Amazon facilitate the financing of hate groups, despite having policies that say they don’t do business with such groups. Reporter Julia Angwin, who contributed to the article, said on Twitter that her email address was made “unusable” when trolls began signing her up for subscriptions at a rate of 15 per minute. She tweeted on August 22: “It does seem like killing a reporters email account is the definition of a chilling effect, no?” Another contributing reporter, Jeff Larson, reported on Twitter that he had been signed up for “tons” of WordPress accounts the same day. Lauren Kirchner, another ProPublica reporter who contributed to the story, tweeted on August 18: “I guess it’s a rite of passage for all lady journos now, to get called a “fascist c*nt” after asking someone a question for an article.” Her email address was also rendered inoperable for the entire day on August 22. The next day, on August 23, the news outlet was smeared via Twitter by what appears to be a Russian bot whose sole tweet, which called the outlet “alt-left” and “#FakeNews,” received more than 23,000 retweets. The smear campaign was in response to an article ProPublica’s Isaac Arnsdorf published that day titled, “Pro-Russian Bots Take Up the Right-Wing Cause After Charlottesville.” Martin Shrekli creates websites to ridicule reporters who covered him unfavorably Since the beginning of the year, the controversial former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli purchased internet domains of 12 journalists who have written or tweeted critically of him, and has now begun to customize the websites by mocking the reporters, according to a Business Insider report published on Tuesday, August 22. A website named after Vanity Fair tech reporter Maya Kosoff says: “Here we honor one of the most vibrant Social Justice advocates today,” an allusion to the term “social justice warriors,” a derogatory term used to describe people who pursue socially progressive causes. On the day Twitter suspended Shkreli’s Twitter account for harassing journalist Lauren Duca, he created a website called MarryMeLauren.com In an interview with Business Insider, Shkreli said, “I wouldn’t call these people ‘journalists.’ They are the unwitting recipients of liberalism subsidy from large media and telecom companies,” adding that they are “only a few notches above the white supremacists we hear so much about these days.” The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.

Healthcare giant Kaiser Permanente, with Southern California headquarters in Pasadena, has issued practical tips for staying active in the heat while at the same time keeping yourself safe from heat stroke and heat exhaustion.“Temperatures are heating up and your body may be unable to properly cool itself, which could lead to a heat stroke or heat exhaustion. Know the signs and symptoms,” Kaiser Permanente said in an advisory on coping with the hot weather.The advisory said heat exhaustion occurs “when you are hot, sweat a lot, and do not drink enough to replace the lost fluids.”“Heat exhaustion is not the same as heatstroke, which is much more serious,” it continued. “Heatstroke can lead to problems with many different organs and can be life-threatening.”Signs of a rapidly progressing heatstroke could include unconsciousness for longer than a few seconds, convulsion, severe difficulty in breathing, a rectal temperature of over 104 degrees, confusion, severe restlessness or anxiety, a fast heart rate, reddish dry skin even in the armpits, and severe vomiting and diarrhea.A person in a heatstroke can either be sweating heavily or not sweat at all while feeling very hot, Kaiser Permanente said.Dr. Angeline Ong-Su, from Kaiser Permanente’s Panorama City Medical Center, said heatstroke can occur when the body reaches a temperature higher than 104 degrees.Anyone seeing symptoms of heatstroke in a family member or any other person should call 9-1-1 and should prepare to administer first aid, according to Kaiser Permanente’s online Health and Wellness page. The page also lists first aid steps in responding to heatstroke:• Move the person into a cool place, out of direct sunlight.• Remove the person’s unnecessary clothing, and place the person on his or her side to expose as much skin surface to the air as possible.• Cool the person’s entire body by sponging or spraying cold water, and fan the person to help lower the person’s body temperature.• Apply ice packs over as much of the body as you can.• Check the person’s rectal temperature and try to reduce it to 102°F or lower as soon as possible. Temperatures taken by mouth or in the ear are not accurate in this emergency situation.• If a child has stopped breathing, begin rescue breathing or CPR.• Do not give aspirin or acetaminophen to reduce a high body temperature that can occur with heatstroke. These medicines may cause problems because of the body’s response to heatstroke.• If the person is awake and alert enough to swallow, give the person fluids (32 fluid ounces to 64 fluid ounces over one to two hours) for hydration. Make sure the person is sitting up enough so that he or she does not choke.Kaiser Permanente said person suffering from heat exhaustion would usually experience a throbbing headache, vision changes, extreme nausea and vomiting and excessive sweating, or may be confused or altogether lose consciousness. The person could also experience muscle cramps and abdominal pains, and feel extremely tired.A person experiencing such symptoms should be moved indoors or to a shaded area, immersed in a cold- or ice-water tub, or sprayed with cool water and fanned.Other tips to respond to heat exhaustion include giving the person cool fluids, applying wet towels or ice packs to the neck, forehead and underarms, removing some of the clothing, and moving them to a cooled-off room where they can rest.For more tips and information about heat stroke and heat exhaustion, visit here.

Limerick hospital still battling trauma surgery backlog

first_imgLimerick Post Show | Careers & Health Sciences Event for TY Students 64 patients waiting for beds in UHL Numbers of Limerick hospital group staff sidelined by COVID-19 reduces by 162 in past 7 days NewsHealthLimerick hospital still battling trauma surgery backlogBy Bernie English – August 14, 2020 355 “There is extreme overcrowding in UHL this morning” – UHL TAGShealthLimerick City and CountyNewsUHLuniversity hospital limerick Linkedin Print Email University Hospital LimerickUNIVERSITY Hospital Limerick is still battling to deal with a surge in cases which need operating theatre time, including elderly people who fall and break bones.Last week, the Limerick Post reported that a large increase in numbers of admitted patients waiting on trolleys for an in-hospotal bed was largely due to an increase in numbers coming to the ED and an increase in the number of beds needed for trauma patients who were awaiting surgery.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In a statment in reply to a request for an update on the situation by the Limerick Post, a spokesman said that this hospital “remains very busy due to a surge in emergency and trauma theatre cases over the past week. This upswing has continued to impact on patient flow in UHL at a time when significant numbers of unwell patients are attending the hospital’s Emergency Department. “We are sorry that any patient admitted to our hospitals faces a long wait time for a bed. We work to ensure that all patients continue to receive expert medical care while they wait, Between 8am last Wednesday, and 8am this Wednesday, August 8, there was a daily average attendance of 184 patients at the ED. Attendances fell over the weekend (134 on Saturday, 151 on Sunday and 145 on Bank Holiday Monday), but this was preceded by a daily attendance rate in excess of 200 last Wednesday (207), Thursday (204) and Friday (214). Following the significant reduction in emergency presentations during the Covid-19 pandemic (levels for March and April 2020 were 144 and 154 respectively), current weekday attendances at the ED frequently surpass 200. Average daily ED presentations for 2019 were 195. “Patients were waiting in individual bays, on beds or trolleys. Since the beginning of the pandemic, there have been no patients on trolleys on corridors in the hospital’s general wards.“Having created capacity for the anticipated Covid-19 surge during March by deferring almost all elective activity, we are now gradually and carefully resuming scheduled care, prioritising care for the sickest patients first. Where patients can safely be seen virtually, this is being facilitated.As part of the Covid precautions, non-Covid patients were diverted to the Acute Surgical Assessment Unit or Acute Medical Unit, “meaning we have effectively been operating three EDs in recent months,” the spokesman said.As part of the drive to bring down the numbers waiting for trauma surgery, the hospital has called in theatre nurses from Ennis and other hospitals in the group so that more theatre time can be offered to patients. As well as identifying patients who can are discharged and treated in the community by specialist teams, the hospital is using the Intermediate Care Facility (ICF) at the University of Limerick. As as of Tuesday morning there were 28 patients being cared for in the facility. Capacity can be further increased in line with demand.center_img Previous articleMunster confirm academy player has tested positive for COVID-19Next articleLimerick Senior Football Championship Preview Bernie Englishhttp://www.limerickpost.ieBernie English has been working as a journalist in national and local media for more than thirty years.
