first_imgTuesday Mar 2, 2021 Women’s Rugby World Cup to be postponed This year’s Women’s Rugby World Cup is set to be postponed until 2022 due to the implications of the coronavirus pandemic, World Rugby has announced.ADVERTISEMENTWorld Rugby said the “challenging global Covid-19 landscape” had led them to recommend a delay in the tournament, which was due to take place in New Zealand from September 18 to October 16.The recommendation will be considered by the Rugby World Cup board and World Rugby’s executive committee at a meeting next week.World Rugby said in a statement: “The recommendation is based on the evolution of the uncertain and challenging global Covid-19 landscape.“It has become clear in recent discussions with key partners including New Zealand Rugby, the New Zealand Government and participating unions, that, given the scale of the event and the COVID-19-related uncertainties, it is just not possible to deliver the environment for all teams to be the best that they can be on the sport’s greatest stage.” Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 14 WEEKS AGO Rugby Pod divided on THOSE refereeing decisions… 15 WEEKS AGO Training ground injury rules out Lawes as… 15 WEEKS AGO Super Rugby Aotearoa now available to stream… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Appeal by Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi and three human rights NGOs

first_img Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists June 5, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Appeal by Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi and three human rights NGOs to go further News News IranMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information IranMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Iran Receive email alerts Prisoners of conscience could die in Iranian government jailsNobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH), its Iranian affiliate (the Iranian League for the Defence of Human Rights) and Reporters Without Borders firmly condemn the inhuman treatment that human rights activists, journalists, netizens and other prisoners of conscience are receiving in Iran’s jails. The human rights situation in Iran keeps on getting worse. Suspicious deaths and mistreatment continue to be reported in the country’s jails, especially Evin and Raja’i Shahr. The lives of many prisoners of conscience are in danger. They include Narges Mohammadi, Mohammad Sedegh Kabodvand and Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, who are all seriously ill. We call for their unconditional and definitive release. We urge the Iranian government to stop putting their lives at risk and we will hold it responsible for what happens to them.A journalist and spokesperson for the Centre for Human Rights Defenders, Narges Mohammadi was arrested in the northern city of Zanjan on 21 April and was taken to Tehran’s Evin prison to begin serving a six-year jail sentence. Originally arrested at her home on 10 June 2010, Mohammadi had a nervous breakdown as a result of the pressure put on her during interrogation and was hospitalized with muscle paralysis after being provisionally released on 2 July 2010. She was sentenced two months later to 11 years in prison on charges of collaborating with the Human Rights Defenders Centre, “meeting and conspiring against the Islamic Republic” and anti-government propaganda. The sentence was reduced to six years on appeal on 4 March 2011.Her family was notified three weeks ago that she had been transferred back to the main prison in Zanjan. Her husband, fellow journalist, Taghi Rahmani, who finally fled the country earlier this year after being harassed for years by the security services, is very concerned about her health.Her transfer to Zanjan was illegal and against her will. She is now being held with ordinary offenders. The transfer is also liable to exacerbate her medical condition. Access to treatment is limited in Iranian prisons, but especially so in provincial ones. “With each day that passes, getting medical treatment is more difficult or completely impossible,” Rahmani told the human rights organizations.Former newspaper editor Mohammad Sedegh Kabodvand began another hunger strike two weeks ago in protest against the judicial authorities’ continuing refusal to allow him to visit his son, who is very ill and who is hospitalized in Tehran. The onetime editor of Payam-e Mardom-e Kurdestan (a newspaper closed by the authorities in 2004), Kabovand has been held since July 2007. A Tehran revolutionary court sentenced him to 11 years in prison on 22 June 2008 for creating a human rights organisation in Iran’s Kurdishnorthwest. The prison authorities have also repeatedly refused his requests for medical parole for a heart ailment.Hossein Ronaghi Maleki, a blogger and human rights activist who has been held since 13 December 2010 and who is serving a 15-year jail sentence, began a hunger strike on 26 May in protest against the denial of appropriate medical treatment. He has undergone two kidney operations but is not getting the medical care he needs and his life is now in danger. Ayatollah Sadegh Amoli Larijani, the head of the justice system, ordered his hospitalization on 2 June but his family has been given no assurances that he will continue to receive treatment.“The Islamic Republic is taking advantage of the tension in the region and its talks with China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the United States about its nuclear programme to divert attention from the gravity of its human rights violations,” the three human rights groups said.“It continues to refuse a visit by Ahmed Shaheed, the UN special rapporteur on the human rights situation in Iran. Contrary to national and international law, there is no independent monitoring of Iran’s prisons and respect for detainees’ basic rights. The international community must make the Iranian authorities cooperate unconditionally with the UN and allow a visit by the special rapporteur.” News News RSF_en Prisoners of conscience could die in Iranian government jails Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists June 9, 2021 Find out more February 25, 2021 Find out more Organisation March 18, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Khawar Mehdi Rizvi insists he is innocent

first_img PakistanAsia – Pacific The journalists Marc Epstein and Jean-Paul Guilloteau have previously said that videotapes found by the security services contained footage taken by Epstein and intended for the magazine’s Internet site.The two have repeated that they were indeed in contact with an armed Taliban group, whose leader Abdullah Shakir was living in Rawalpindi. The three journalists had never intended at any time to tarnish Pakistan’s image, they stressed.The Baluchistan police chief added that two other men, Allah Noor and Abdullah Shakir, were also being held and charged with “sedition”.Rizvi’s lawyer, Abid Saqi, plans to enter a bail application on 29 January.The Khawar Mehdi international support committee is made up of Pakistani journalists as well as those from French media, France 2, TF1, Le Monde, Libération, and L’Express, from US dailies The New York Times and Chicago Tribune and Reporters Without Borders.The three journalists were arrested in Karachi on 16 December 2003. Detained Pakistani journalist Khawar Mehdi Rizvi told journalists he was totally innocent of the charges against him as he was led away on 30 January from a court in Quetta which had just ordered that he should remain in custody so that the authorities can purse their investigation. The police now have another 14 days before turning Rizvi over to the judicial authorities. Rizvi has been tortured while in detention and according to his brother, he is under considerable pressure, both physical and psychological. “I am totally innocent… it looks from this incident that an effort is being made to hamper the credibility of the international media,” Rizvi said.According to the criminal investigations department of the Quetta police, Rizvi is accused of taking money from two reporters with the French weekly L’Express, Marc Epstein and Jean-Paul Guilloteau, to fabricate a report about a Taliban commander and a Taliban training camp near the Afghan border.He is charged with conspiracy, sedition, “harming Pakistan’s international reputation,” and “promoting hatred between Pakistan and a neighbouring country and the international community, and between Islam and other religions.” Two taliban, Syed Allah Noor and Abdullah Shakir, are facing the same charges. The charge sheet claims that evidence (video cassettes) were transmitted by a “secret agency.”The US ambassador to Islamabad has voiced concern to the Pakistani government about the treatment Rizvi is being given.________________________________________________________28.01.2004Journalist Khawar Mehdi Rizvi at risk of life sentence for “sedition” and “conspiracy”The Pakistani authorities have finally “deigned to respect the law” by charging journalist Khawar Mehdi Rizvi after secretly detaining him for more than 40 days, Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) said.Baluchistan provincial police chief Shoaib Suddle said on 25 January that Rizvi, who was working for the French weekly L’Express, was being held in Quetta and had been charged with “sedition” and “conspiracy” under Article 124-A of the criminal code.Stressing the absence of material evidence to support the charges, the international press freedom organisation “deplored the cynicism with which the authorities apply double-standards”, in that two French journalists with whom he worked were, on appeal, sentenced only to a fine.The authorities accuse Rizvi of setting up a fake report for the French journalists on the activities of armed Taliban groups at the Afghan border.

Los Robles Ave. and 50 Alessandro Drive, according to City Clerk Mark Jomsky, who said both projects were tabled for future discussion.That was done primarily because the meeting was dominated by the issue of police oversight and an update on the COVID-19 crisis. Combined, those two important topics pushed the 2 p.m. meeting past 9 p.m.According to a staff report, COB Investments LP has submitted a PPR application to build 105 units, including eight for very low income tenants, on contiguous properties at 270 and 282 N. Los Robles Ave., a parking lot once owned by Fuller Theological Seminary.But that process cannot advance because one of the contiguous properties was previously owned by Fuller in 2006 and is under the purview of the Fuller Theological Seminary master plan, as well as a related development agreement. The agreement stipulates that any new housing units in the Fuller master plan must be affordable and used exclusively by Fuller students and faculty.Fuller is currently amending its master plan and development agreement, a process that began in March.“Therefore, in order to construct the proposed project, the restrictions on the site by the Fuller Master Plan and Development Agreement would need to removed, either by removing the site from the Fuller Master Plan and Development Agreement or amending both documents to allow non-Fuller market rate housing at this site,” according to the city staff report.PPRs are part of the city’s zoning code, designed to help produce better projects through early communication between staff and applicants.Under this process, projects that meet the threshold of “community-wide significance,” are greater than 50,000 square-feet in size, contain 50 or more housing units, or any project that is deemed by the director of planning and community development department to be of major importance to the city, are presented to the council as a way to inform the board’s members and the public.The process also helps familiarize applicants with the regulations and procedures that apply to the projects and avoids significant investment and time in the design of a project without preliminary input from city staff.It also helps to identify potential issues that may arise during the application process, such as community concerns and inconsistencies with city regulations and policies.The council also postponed a pre-development plan review of a revision to a planned development that includes a 60,000 square-foot medical office building at 50 Alessandro Place, near Huntington Hospital.The site is currently occupied by a 62,300 square-foot, four-story medical office building with 437 parking spaces located above ground and in a partially subterranean garage.“The proposed project consists of the retention of the existing medical office building and the partially subterranean parking garage, and a revision to the development standards of planned development to facilitate the construction of a 60,000 square-foot, three-story, medical office building and a five-level, above-grade parking garage with 321 parking spaces,” according to a city staff report. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPasadena Water and PowerPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Community Newslast_img read more

Now we’ve gone to the other extreme. When a person is in crisis and suicidal, there is no secure place to send them to where they will be safe,” he told the Limerick Post.Mr Hogan said that while there are mental health treatment facilities in unit 5 B of the University Hospital “there is no place in the Mid West where someone who is suicidal can be helped outside business hours. The best that we can do if we meet someone who is suicidal is call an ambulance or the Gardaí. They’ll be sent to the hospital and discharged after a few hours”.Mr Hogan said that while organisations such as Pieta House are doing sterling work, “they don’t have funding to provide secure accommodation and they are a nine-to-five operation”.While there are specially trained nurses on duty at the hospital emergency department, Mr Hogan said there are “no consultants or psychiatrists and there is nowhere to send people who are having a mental health crisis.“We need some way of keeping people safe when that happens and we don’t have any place”, he said.

Isolation and identification of photosynthetic bacteria (Rhodospirillaceae) from Antarctic marine and freshwater sediments

first_imgSediment samples obtained from three freshwater lakes and off‐shore coastal marine waters on Signy Island, South Orkney Islands, Antarctica have been inoculated into selective enrichment media for purple non‐sulphur bacteria (Rhodospirillaceae). From the freshwater sediments strains of Rhodopseudomonas sphaeroides (1), Rhodopseudomonas palustris (1), Rhodospirillum fulvum (1), Rhodospirillum molischanum (1) and Rhodomicrobium vannielii (3) have been isolated. The only purple non‐sulphur bacteria obtained from Lake 10 (Amos lake) were strains of Rhodomicrobium vannielii which were able to tolerate hydrogen sulphide (up to 0.04% w/v) found in this lake. Growth of all the other isolates is inhibited by the presence of hydrogen sulphide. Marine sediments yielded strains of Rhodopseudomonas palustris and Rhodomicrobium vannielii. All the isolates grow optimally at temperatures between 25 and 30 °C. mean generation times vary between 8 and 10.7 h depending on species. There is no evidence of cold adaptation in any of the strains studied.last_img read more
