The caller had sought immediate relief from the government. He mentioned that his sister and brother in-law were in Karnataka affected by floods and there was no electricity and telephone connectivity.

After some hours, I was relieved to hear that the victims had been rescued by boats and had been ferried to a safe place,” said Javed Ahmed Khan, state minister for Disaster Management and Civil Defence. The department was also informed that 20 Bengali families who were stuck in the area have been rescued successfully. The caller who had called up the ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ number also gave the feedback that his family members have been evacuated safely and were doing well. The minister also informed that another 14 Bengali people who were stuck in Kadur Karnataka have also been rescued in a similar fashion on Sunday. It may be mentioned that of late there has been some curiosity among common people regarding the nature of suggestions and problems that have been coming on the ‘Didi Ke Bolo’ platform. The platform, which is being monitored by a team led by Prashant Kishor, has not shared individual cases, respecting the privacy of the callers/registrants. But after explicit permission from the caller in this case, the platform shared this serious issue that was resolved. Meanwhile, a video was posted by Howrah resident Jagannath Chakraborty on the Facebook page of ‘Didi Ke Bolo’, informing how the helpline has come to the rescue of a patient suffering from TB. Chakraborty had called on the helpline number after the patient was denied treatment in all hospitals and medicine shops also refused to provide medicine for the patient as he was unable to provide any proper address proof. “When I called the number I was advised to take him to Calcutta Medical College and contact the deputy superintendent of the hospital. I acted accordingly and the patient is now undergoing treatment at the hospital,” Chakraborty shared in his video.last_img read more

Indigenous protesters in Washington declare Trans Mountain wont be built

first_imgThe Trans Mountain expansion – recently bought by Canada for $4.5 billion – doesn’t only affect Canadian waters or land. The project will increase tanker traffic seven-fold in the Salish Sea, which borders British Columbia and Washington, and Kinder Morgan has noted the expansion potential of a connected 111-kilometre pipeline that runs from B.C.’s Fraser Valley to Washington refineries.Many Indigenous activists trace their roots to both sides of the border. George-Parker’s father is from North Vancouver’s Tsleil-Waututh Nation and his mother is from Washington’s Tulalip Tribes. He travels to B.C. often and in April disrupted a speech by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in Vancouver.“Our people never had borders,” he said. “We still try not to let borders separate us.”The 2014 shooting at Marysville Pilchuck High School deeply affected George-Parker, now 21. He found it outrageous that governments subsidize big business while underfunding education and counselling for young people. Canada’s purchase of Trans Mountain is the latest example of wasted government money, he said.Washington Gov. Jay Inslee has criticized Trudeau’s government for buying the pipeline project, calling it a “major step backward” in the climate change fight.Even though Inslee opposes the expansion, some protesters in his state don’t feel supported. Police arrested Janene Hampton in January and charged her with criminal trespassing after she and several other Indigenous women camped on the state capitol lawn to protest resource projects including Trans Mountain. VANCOUVER, B.C. – Cedar George-Parker remembers the moment he decided to devote his life to defending Indigenous people and their traditional territories. It was the one-year anniversary of a shooting at his high school that killed four of his classmates in Marysville, Wash.“I dropped to my knees and I said, ‘I’m going to make a change in the world,’” he recalled.George-Parker is among the Indigenous protesters in Washington state promising to fight the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. Activists call the project the Standing Rock of the north, comparing it to the fierce Standing Rock Sioux protests that stalled the Dakota Access Pipeline for months. Hampton also camped at the Standing Rock protest for months. She joined the movement against pipelines to protect the water, said Hampton, a member of the Colville Okanagan Tribe, which has traditional territories spanning B.C.’s southern Interior to northeast Washington.“One of the big fights for us as Aboriginal people is the whales,” she said, adding they use sonar, and existing vessel noise has already disrupted their communication.Canada’s $1.5-billion oceans protection plan includes $7.2 million to increase the use of technologies that monitor underwater noise. It has also announced other steps to support the recovery of the endangered southern resident killer whale population, which lives in B.C. and Washington waters.The Canadian government often touts its oceans protection plan as “world-leading,” but as recently as May 2017, officials in Washington raised questions about Canada’s preparedness for an oil spill.center_img Washington required Kinder Morgan to conduct a worst-case scenario exercise. The company simulated a spill of 3,024 barrels of heavy synthetic crude oil in the Sumas River, which runs from B.C.’s Fraser Valley to Whatcom County, Wash.In a report following the exercise, state ecology department staff wrote that Kinder Morgan brought together a skilled spill management team including staff from U.S., Canadian, B.C. and Washington government agencies. But the report also said non-floating oil tactics planned on the Washington side were not planned on the B.C. side, and Canada did not discuss the type of equipment it would use to clean up a major spill.The exercise was conducted to meet U.S. regulatory requirements and was not focused on the Canadian response, said James Stevenson, a spokesman for the National Energy Board. A joint U.S.-Canadian plan to respond to cross-border spills exists but was not activated during the May 2017 exercise, he said.Canada’s purchase of the project includes the Puget Sound pipeline, a 111-kilometre line that diverts from the existing Trans Mountain pipeline in B.C. and carries oil to four Washington refineries. Environmental groups now fear an expansion to the Puget Sound line, citing 2017 financial disclosure documents in which Kinder Morgan touted the potential for increasing capacity.“That is definitely a big concern,” said Rebecca Ponzio, campaign director for Stand Up to Oil, a coalition of U.S. groups that oppose new oil terminals and coastal exports.Canada’s Department of Finance did not directly answer a question about whether it would consider expanding the Washington line, but it said it planned to follow Kinder Morgan’s 2018 construction schedule for the expansion of the pipeline in B.C. and Alberta.Trans Mountain, a subsidiary of Kinder Morgan, said market conditions dictate how much crude oil is transported through the Puget Sound pipeline. While the line could be expanded, the company expects the majority of the expansion capacity from the Trans Mountain project will be for export from a marine terminal in Burnaby, B.C.But protesters won’t allow construction on the expansion to proceed without a fight.“That pipeline will never go through,” said Paul Wagner, a member of the Saanich First Nation who lives in Redmond, Wash., and goes by the traditional name Cheoketen.“The people are rising up.”By Laura KaneTHE CANADIAN PRESSlast_img read more

British man who went missing on Californian beach may have faked his

Police in the US are searching for a British man reported missing from a beach in California.Kim Gordon, from Inverness, was reported missing on Monday from Monastery Beach in Carmel, by his 17-year-old son who said his dad had gone swimming.Monterey County Sheriff’s Office captain John Thornburg said the beach is “dangerous”.He said dive teams searched the water for two days but found no trace of the missing man.US officials now believe he may still be alive.Mr Thornburg told the Press Association: “The whole thing started on February 25, which was a Monday.”We got a 911 call saying that he had gone swimming off one of our beaches and hadn’t returned.”This was 7.15pm, which was a little unusual to go swimming because it was dark.”At that time we treated it as a missing person, as a swimmer in distress, so the fire department, the sheriff’s office and state parks began searching.”Monastery Beach is the area where he was reported to have gone. It’s a very dangerous beach, getting out of the water is very difficult.”For the next two days we put dive teams into the Pacific Ocean there to try and locate him and he wasn’t.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. He said when the incident was further examined it began to be treated as suspicious and added “we’ve got to a point now that we don’t believe he went into the ocean, we don’t think he went swimming”.He said: “We can’t prove that he went into the water.”Mr Thornburg believes the pair were on a two-week break in the States and flew in to Los Angeles, but said there was “no indication” of how they got to Monterey County, where they were staying or if they had a vehicle.He said the missing man’s son was taken into protective custody during the rescue operation and has since returned to Scotland.Inquiries in the US are continuing and the country’s Marshals Service is now involved in the case.A Foreign Office spokesman said: “Our staff are assisting the family of a British man who is missing in the United States and are in touch with the local authorities”. read more

TV Plus defends customer complaints

first_imgLately Neos Kosmos has received several phone calls from members of the community who are complaining about reception problems for Greek TV channels transmitted through the broadcasting platform of Tv Plus. Tv Plus launched its package of Greek TV channels about 8 months ago, entering the Greek TV channels market when the then UBI declared bankruptcy. Tv Plus was already in the business since 2004, giving access to Balkan channels to the Serbian, Croatian and Russian communities of Australia. Their Greek TV channels ‘proposal’ to customers consisted of the transmission of channels from Greece and Cyprus like Alpha, Mega Cosmos, Star, ΡΙΚ and others. While many of the community took advantage of this new deal, and teething problems go in some instances hand in hand with new products, six months down the track, a number of customers seem to face a number of issues with their Greek TV channels viewing platform of choice. The problems they have encountered, while common for most of them, are not only related to the poor reception of the channels. In a rather furious state, those who picked up the phone to report their experience to Neos Kosmos went as far as blaming the company for “poor customer service”, as even when they tried to resolve the reception issues they had, via a phone call to the company, this became almost impossible for them as the dedicated line for this service, provided by the company, was either engaged, or was not being answered. But even for those who managed eventually to get through and receive technical advice, which in most cases was for them to change the codes on the decoder (box) they received when they subscribed to Tv Plus, did not prove to be the solution. One caller voiced their concern over mounting costs to fix an issue that the company should rightfully be paying for. “Since I was losing the signal at least once a week and I was calling them all the time, they realized that this cannot be fixed over the phone and they referred me to an authorised technician,” one of our callers said. “I called the technician and I was informed I will be hit with a $75 charge for him to visit my premises,” one of the disgruntled customers told Neos Kosmos. His argument for not wanting to pay the $75 fee was based on the premise that he had recently subscribed to the service (six months) and the company should cover this cost, since their commitment to the customer when he signed his contract was for him to be able to watch Greek channels, which he could not do on a regular basis. Neos Kosmos contacted the company in an effort to clarify these issues and seek their side of the story. “We took over what was the business of UBI and we had our own broadcaster transmission infrastructure. We did deliver the set top box to customers’ houses but what we are finding is that many customers’ old dishes are not compatible with our digital transmission,” John Jeremic, chief technical officer of Tv Plus said to Neos Kosmos. “Many customers have had their dishes installed to watch ERT and those dishes may not be 100 per cent compatible with everything and the transmission. But because they were a cheap, free to air install, then they won’t have to be the highest spec, whereas our service requires a bit more finesse from the installation perspective,” he added. As indicated by Mr Jeremic, UBI was using the MPEG2 decoding format, while Tv Plus is using the latest MPEG4 system. That system gives better picture quality for customers. “Once we send the equipment to the customers’ place, quite often they need the technician to visit,” John Jeremic admitted, but the customers don’t want to pay for the technician as a number of our readers categorically stated to us. “We are not offering the component of servicing or improving the dish installed on the customer’s premise, we are only responsible for the box that we deliver to the customer. So then the customer has to pay a bit more money to get that done,” he added. Mr Jeremic said that 9-10 per cent of Tv Plus’s customers have already faced this kind of issue and in 9 ½ out of 10 times the faults had been rectified by a technician going to the customer’s place and tweaking their dish or explaining to them more correctly how to use the receiver, because in some cases even the customers seem to be unaware of the new technology. We asked Mr Jeremic if the use of the MPEG4 system and its incompatibility will go further than a $75 visit from a technician and will eventually require the replacement of the dish which is a much more costly exercise. “In 40 per cent of cases the customer’s existing dish and infrastructure can be used. In a majority of instances the LNB, which is the white adaptor on the dish arm, needs to be replaced. The reason for this is nearly all dishes were installed more than 3 years ago, the LNB is not 100 per cent comparable 100 with our newer format of MPEG 4 transmission, that is why some customers have a good picture and others don’t.” The decoder comes with a 12 month warranty from Tv Plus and will be replaced free-of-charge if the unit is faulty. Tv Plus says customers should be patient when calling, as the lines are very busy at the moment. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Friday Update On Swan Lake Fire Containment Line Complete Near Sterling Highway

first_imgAlong the Sterling Highway watch for construction zones, and smoke on the roadway. Dip-netting season is now underway significantly increasing traffic. Ashford: “Be prepared that we may have delays, and that we may have smoke on the  roadways. So, build that into your schedule and be prepared that their are plenty of other folks on the roadways.”  The containment line is now connected from the Sterling Highway to the wetland areas (muskeg) along the south and west side of the fire.  This is significant because it keeps the fire from moving further west toward Sterling, according to a release from the Incident Command Team.Jonathan Ashford with the Incident Command Team: “One of the goals along the south and southwest edge of the fire has always been to keep the fire away from the community of Sterling and that highway corridor.”  Existing hiking and four-wheel trails will be used to create containment lines. The fire operations chief says a containment line using the Resurrection Pass Trail and a forest service road should be completed within 24-48 hours. In addition, Alaska Division of Forestry has prohibited campfires on Kenai Peninsula Burrough and other regions of Alaska. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Last updated on July 13th, 2019 at 07:24 amThe Swan Lake Fire remains estimated at just over 100,000 acres with roughly 423 on staff and containment is at 25% as the dense smoke slowly begins to clear. A mapping of the fire hasn’t been conducted since Wednesday night, an update on the acreage is expected over the weekend.center_img Ahead of the fire, crews continue to thin brush and vegetation along the Skyline Trail and Fuller Lakes Trail on the east side of the fire perimeter near Cooper Landing.  The purpose of this effort is to reduce the chance of the fire spreading east along the highway corridor. Open fires are prohibited on Kenai Peninsula State Park, Kenai NWR, Chugach NF, and Kenai Fjords NP.  For the latest updates please contact the Refuge Visitor Center at 907-260-2820 or go to http://kenai.fws.gov. Fire personnel will be working in and around the Cooper Landing area assessing properties for structure and property protection actions if needed as we go into the weekend.last_img read more

HISD High Schools Seeing Less Principal Turnover

first_img Share 00:00 /01:14 X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Listen HISDPrincipals gathered for a meeting at the Hattie Mae White Building in April 2013. That year, principal turnover at HISD hit 18 percent.Principal turnover at high schools in the Houston Independent School District hit a high of 18 percent in 2013 and again 2015, according to a data analysis of the last five years by Houston Public Media.This past school year, however, was more stable: Just 9 percent of HISD high schools had a new leader.These numbers put HISD in line with other urban districts. According to a 2014 report by the School Leaders Network, a typical district loses anywhere from 15 to thirty percent of their principals each year.“Principal turnover is common and it’s particularly common in high-needs schools, so schools that are serving large proportions of kids living in poverty, for example, or in challenging urban districts,” said Laura Hamilton with RAND Education.HISD’s numbers reflect that. At least eight high schools saw three different principals in the past five years. Those include some schools that the Texas Education Agency has said need improvement, including Kashmere, Westbury and Worthing high schools.“In general having excessive principal turnover is disruptive and potentially harmful for teachers and for kids,” Hamilton added, speaking generally and not about HISD.Some of HISD’s top high schools have had completely stable leadership in the same period, like the nationally recognized Carnegie Vanguard. last_img read more

The Shining parody captures the nightmare of Steam sales

first_imgOn paper, Steam sales don’t sound that scary. Regular opportunities to save lots of cash on a ton of great PC games? Seems like an awesome deal. But despite the savings, given just how much money players are prone to spending during a Steam sale, there’s now a familiar feeling of dread that emanates from their wallets whenever another one is on horizon.This parody of The Shining perfectly captures the encroaching horror.The video casts Valve’s co-founder Gabe Newell as crazed, axe-wielding maniac Jack Torrance in Stanley Kubrick’s famous Stephen King novel adaptation. The scene recreates Jack chopping through the door to terrorize and murder his screaming wife Wendy. “Here’s Johnny!”However, here it’s more than just an axe blade forcing its way through the door. Coupons of Steam sale savings pour from Gabe’s very body. 25% off! 50% off! 85% off! Eventually, all Wendy can do to stop the madness is pull out her wallet and start spending, a feeling Steam users know all too well as they submit to the sale.YouTuber zombiller created the video in Source Filmmaker, the movie making tool for Valve’s Source engine. Since its release nearly three years ago, a vibrant community has formed around the software making everything from silly parodies like this to fairly dramatic short films. Valve even uses it for its own trailers.It’s only a matter of time before Valve chops down our doors with the next Steam sale, so we might as well get ready for it now. After all, if their former in-house economist can become Greece’s new finance minister, they know a thing or two about getting our money.“All sales and no work makes Gabe a happy boy.”last_img read more

Paul Graham Steps Down as President of Y Combinator

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 2 min read Y Combinator, the prestigious seed accelerator that has spawned an impressive list of big-name tech companies (Dropbox, Reddit, Airbnb and Weebly, to name just a few) is getting a new president.Paul Graham, who co-founded the accelerator, announced in a blog post that he is passing the reins to Sam Altman, a current Y Combinator partner.In the post, Graham directly addressed his decision to step down. “YC needs to grow, and I’m not the best person to grow it,” he wrote. “Sam is what YC needs at this stage in its evolution.”Related: At Startup Accelerators, Expect the UnexpectedAltman was one of the founders in the first batch of startups the accelerator funded back in 2005. (He co-founded the location-based social networking mobile application Loopt). In his post, Graham claimed he has been trying to recruit Altman for the job since 2012.”He’s one of those rare people who manage to be both fearsomely effective and yet fundamentally benevolent — which, though few realize it, is an essential quality in early stage investing,” he wrote. “Sam is one of the smartest people I know, and understands startups better than perhaps anyone I know, including myself.  He’s the one I go to when I want a second opinion about a hard problem.”Graham said he will continue to work with the accelerator as an advisor, and expects Y Combinator to continue to grow: “There will be a lot more startups in 10 years than there are now, and if YC is going to fund them, we’ll have to grow proportionally bigger.”Related: Calling All Dreamers: Disney Is Launching a Startup Accelerator Program Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

5 Calais Campbell – 2nd round 2008 The Cardinal

first_img5. Calais Campbell – 2nd round, 2008The Cardinals chose the mammoth defensive lineman out of Miami with the 50th overall selection, and though he did not make a significant impact for the team as a rookie as the Cardinals reached Super Bowl XLIII, he quickly became one of the stalwarts along the defensive line. Campbell tallied at least six sacks in every season from 2009 to 2014, posting a career-high nine in 2013. During his time in Arizona Campbell has become a defensive captain, a great person in the community and a two-time Pro Bowler.4. Darnell Dockett – 3rd round, 2004The Cardinals tabbed the Florida State product with the 64th pick in the 2004 draft, and it did not take long for Dockett to show just what kind of player the team had. A rare interior defensive lineman who could pressure the quarterback, Dockett picked up 3.5 sacks as a rookie and then, after adding another 2.5 over the next two seasons, went on a run that saw him become one of the best defensive linemen in the league. He posted nine sacks in 2007, leading to the first of three Pro Bowl berths, and tallied a total of 40.5 sacks over 10 seasons with the Cardinals. Never bashful, Dockett’s personality at times led to a little extra stress for management, but there was little disputing the kind of player he was and the passion he played with. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 3. Adrian Wilson – 3rd round, 2001When the Cardinals chose Wilson with the 64th overall selection, they were not quite sure if the former North Carolina State product would be a cornerback or a safety. He ended up at safety and the rest, as they say, is history. Wilson went on to play 12 seasons for the Cardinals, reaching the Pro Bowl five times and becoming one of the most feared defensive backs in the NFL. He finished his career with 987 tackles (716 solo), 25.5 sacks, 27 interceptions, 106 passes defensed, 15 forced fumbles, eight fumble recoveries and four touchdowns. He is one of just six players to have recorded at least 25 career interceptions and 25 sacks, and in 2015 was inducted into the Cardinals’ Ring of Honor. In April 2016 he was hired by the team as a scout.2. Anquan Boldin – 2nd round, 2003It’s funny to think about how Boldin was the second receiver the Cardinals drafted in 2003, but nabbing him 54th overall was one of the best things the franchise has ever done. Boldin followed up an impressive training camp with one of the best debuts in NFL history, catching 10 passes for 217 yards and two touchdowns in a road loss to Detroit. That served as the springboard for him to become one of the best receivers in the NFL, and in seven seasons with the Cardinals he caught 586 passes for 7,520 yards and 44 touchdowns. He went to the Pro Bowl three times and his playing style — hard-nosed, physical and emotional — was something to behold. He’s remained a productive player in the years since the Cardinals traded him, catching 423 passes for 5,675 yards and 30 touchdowns for the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers, the former of which he won a Super Bowl with. 0 Comments   Share   That fact is the spark for this week’s edition of The 5 as, keeping in mind the draft’s structure has changed over the years, we will rank the best Day 2 picks in Arizona Cardinals history. In this case, the list is based on the second and third rounds. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 1. Aeneas Williams – 3rd round, 1991Another member of the team’s Ring of Honor, few probably expected Williams, taken 59th overall out of Southern, to become the player he did. And that’s fine. Williams burst onto the scene as a rookie with six interceptions, and from then on was one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. In fact, while Deion Sanders got most of the publicity in that era, some would argue Williams — who was a much better (and more willing) tackler was at worst Prime Time’s equal. Williams stuck with the Cardinals longer than some other players may have during a time in which they were not particularly good, and saw his faith rewarded with the team’s playoff run in 1998. In 10 seasons with the Cardinals Williams intercepted 55 passes, was a Pro Bowler six times and a First-Team All-Pro twice. Arizona traded him to St. Louis in 2001 – where he went on to make another two Pro Bowls — and Williams was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as part of its class of 2014.Just missed the cut: Karlos Dansby (2nd round, 2004), Jake Plummer (2nd round, 1997), Frank Sanders (2nd round, 1995), Tyrann Mathieu (3rd round, 2013) Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories Last week, Vince Marotta broke down the best draft classes in Cardinals history for “The 5.”In it, he ranked the 2004 draft haul, which included Larry Fitzgerald, Karlos Dansby, Darnell Dockett and Antonio Smith, as the best, and it’s difficult to argue.But while Fitzgerald is easily the best player to come out of that group, it is the team’s later selections — specifically Dansby and Dockett — that really make it stand out. After all, it’s one thing to get talent in the first round and a completely different thing to find it in rounds two (Dansby) and three (Dockett).last_img read more

UCy defends software purchase

first_imgThe Council of the University of Cyprus (UCy) on Thursday defended its purchase of software licenses, after accusations that it may have squandered public funds.In a statement, UCy’s Council said the procedures followed to purchase licenses for the Oracle software system were above board.It added that the university had nothing to hide, as it has supplied all information relating to this matter to the auditor-general, in two letters sent on July 11 and August 31.Earlier this week, the law firm formerly representing the university accused UCy rector Constantinos Christofides of ignoring their advice not to renew a contract for using Oracle software.The law firm claimed the terms of the new contract were worse than that of the initial contract.Responding, the rector suggested that the law firm was making the allegations because the university terminated its cooperation with them in 2015 and switched to another firm.He also said the accusations may be politically driven, given that the previous law firm has affiliations with the Akel party, which is now attacking Christofides, whom rumour has it may run for president next year.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoBon VoyagedCelebrity Mega Yachts That Are Out Of This World – Step AboardBon VoyagedUndoGundry MDHow To Make Your Dark Spots Fade (Effortless 2 Minute Routine)Gundry MDUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Turkish Cypriot journalists take Afrika threats to Europe

first_imgThe union of Turkish Cypriot journalists Basin Sen has written to international organisations to inform them of a terror campaign unleashed against Afrika daily newspaper over an ‘insulting’ cartoon it published of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.In a letter to European and international journalist organisations and Harlem Desir, the representative on freedom of the media at the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe, the union said freedom of thought and expression in the northern part of the island was being disregarded.“A number of associations and organisations, who do not have Cypriots among them, threatened the newspaper and the authors and demanded it stopped being published,” the letter said.The cartoonAfrika found itself in hot water after publishing the cartoon, which originally appeared in a Greek newspaper, last Thursday, during the Turkish president’s official visit to Athens last week.Afrika posted the cartoon under the title “Through Greek eyes”.The cartoon depicted a Greek statue urinating on Erdogan with a Greek flag in the background.Basin Sen said Recep Akdag, Turkey’s Deputy Prime Minister, responsible for Cyprus, openly threatened Afrika and its staff, saying “he would personally deal with the issue in order to punish the newspaper and the authors.”“This attitude… clearly shows who is in control of the northern part of Cyprus. The aim here is to pressure journalists in Cyprus too and put press freedom behind bars as in Turkey,” Basin Sen said.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.

Asylum seekers set fires cause ruckus at Kofinou two remanded Update2

first_imgTwo men, aged 24 and 25, from Eritrea were remanded in custody for six days on Saturday after riots broke out at an asylum reception centre in Kofinou during which rubbish bins were torched and installations damaged.The court heard the two suspects and another man, also from Eritrea, started protesting on Friday night at 9.30pm because the authorities had decided not to grant them a monthly stipend after they refused to work.The centre’s personnel tried to calm the men however, they started smashing things and instigating others to join in.Police officers from the local station arrived on the scene but instead of calming down the situation escalated with protesters placing desks, chairs, and large plastic rubbish bins in the centre’s main road and setting them alight.The fire service was called to the scene but at their sight, the protesters started hurling stones and other objects at the police and the fire fighters.Meanwhile, they caused damage to the prefabricated buildings used as dormitories and offices.More officers arrived at the centre along with negotiators who tried to communicate with the rioters only to be met by stones.The authorities responded by dispatching riot units and at 1.40am on Saturday they entered the centre and secured the area.At around 3am, the court heard, a Palestinian man staying at the centre went to police station and reported that he had been assaulted by one of the rioters who hit him in the head with a brick. The man had suffered injury near his right eye.Two hours later, one of workers at the centre noticed a fire at one of the prefabricated buildings near the entrance. The fire was put out by the fire service after causing extensive damage to the interior.Four men from Eritrea were identified as the instigators of the trouble and police issued warrants for their arrest. They managed to locate two of them and had to fire warning shots in the air to disperse the crowd and make the arrests. Police arrested a third person later Saturday while the other one remains at large.Following the arrests, a number of asylum seekers walked to the police station at Kofinou and remained there for hours demanding to see the suspects. They claimed that the two men had nothing to do with the riots.The protest ended without any incident.The Eritrean asylum seekers arrived in Cyprus from Italy under an EU relocation programme among member-states.Interior Ministry permanent secretary Kypros Kyprianou visited Kofinou later Saturday.He said 40 individuals from Eritrea were relocated to Cyprus in the past two-three months under the EU programme.“One of their demands is to return to Italy,” he told reporters. “But what caused last night’s vandalisms was them being informed they would not receive the guaranteed minimum income (€480) because they refused to work.Kyprianou said the law on GMI applied to all citizens of the republic without exception.  You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
