Police were called and certified the journalist’s death, but his body bore no mark of injury and it remains unclear whether he was killed or died accidentally. “We urge the investigators to quickly shed light on this case, not to rule out any lead and to take seriously the possibility he was murdered”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Nigeria is one of the world’s most violent countries towards journalists. Three journalists have been killed there in the past two weeks and many have received death threats. It is about time that the police put an end to the impunity enjoyed by the killers of journalists”.Reporters Without Borders said it noted the statement by police in Lagos on 4 May to do everything possible to ‘solve the mystery of the murders of Nigerian journalists’. The organisation however is looking for concrete steps on the part of the authorities, which have never solved the majority of killings of journalists. Nigeria is ranked 135th out of 175 countries in Reporters Without Borders’ 2009 world press freedom index. Ogbonna Onovo, the Inspector General of the Nigerian police force was included for the first time in the organisation’s list of 40 ‘press freedom predators’ , released on 3 May this year.To find out more: see the previous release .Acting president of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, was yesterday sworn in as president replacing President Umaru Yar’Adua, who died the previous day after a long illness.

And that’s why we must resist this nomination as though our lives depended on it – because for many of us, they do.”Chu said Judge Kavanaugh has a “long record of hostility to women’s reproductive freedoms” and the ACA, and has also publicly expressed his belief that President Trump cannot be criminally charged while in office.“Surely Trump was aware of his position when nominating him, which is an obvious conflict of interest as the Supreme Court is almost certain to hear a case involving the Mueller probe,” Chu said. “Nobody should be able to appoint the judge in their own trial. At the absolute least, Kavanaugh must recuse himself from all cases having to do with Mueller’s investigation.”Chu called on her colleagues in the U.S. Senate to oppose Kavanaugh’s nomination during the confirmation process.“In a year where the Court has upheld religious discrimination against Muslims and weakened the power of labor unions while handing more power to businesses, we cannot risk a further shift to the right,” Chu added.Since 2006, Kavanaugh has served the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and was formerly a White House aide under President George W. Bush.Kavanaugh also once worked for Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated Democratic former president Bill Clinton in the 1990s.Trump announced Kavanaugh’s nomination Tuesday, praising the judge as a “brilliant jurist,” and possibly setting the stage for a bruising confirmation battle.

Students participate in local March for Science

first_imgTags: conservation, education, march, March for Science, protest, science Several Saint Mary’s students marched from Howard Park to Jon R. Hunt Memorial Plaza in South Bend’s version of the March on Science, a celebration of science and a call for science to be involved in governmental policy, on Saturday.Sophomore Teresa Brickey said in an email the March for Science calls for more funding for scientific research and progress.“The March for Science was a celebration of science in general and a call to uphold the dignity of such studies,” she said. “For me, it was about showing our current administration there is no such thing as alternative facts — just facts. And these facts need to be protected and held in a high regard. We must aim for a society that funds research and progress, not walls or for-profit deportation centers.”Brickey said she attended the South Bend March for Science with several other Saint Mary’s students and she marched because as a Catholic and aspiring lawyer, she wants to help others cement science’s place in society.“Personally, I have been attending as many protests and demonstrations that align with my faith and personal morals,” she said. “Science and faith do go hand in hand. As a devout Catholic, global citizen and breathing human being, it is my responsibility to do as much as I can to protect truths and to protect the common dignity that we all share. Science is real and should be left out of absurd political party agendas, hence why the march was bipartisan.”Freshman Olivia Garza said in an email she marched because she and her mother strongly believe in water conservation and the importance of raising awareness for global warming. “My mom is a hippie and strongly believes in conservation of water and reducing our carbon footprint,” Garza said. “Also, the Trump administration is cutting the [Environmental Protection Agency] by 31 percent, which is very alarming. I also marched for global warming.”Brickey said the March for Science was necessary because America’s current administration wants to cut funding to several environmental and educational factions of the government.  “Our current administration is in the process of creating their budget cuts,” she said. “They intend to decrease the allocation of funding to groups like the EPA, National Parks, the Department of Education,  grants that protect our water quality and many other areas that simply are more important than offsetting the increase in defense funding.”Garza said she believes the March for Science is a march for future generations. “Students are the future,” she said. “We are the future teachers, lawyers, doctors, parents of America, and I want this plant to continue to be beautiful for the future. If we disregard climate change and global warming, we are doing disservice to ourselves and to future generations.”Garza said students have the opportunity to raise awareness for science, education and conservation. “I encourage students to recycle, to shop at thrift stores online or in person, use reusable water bottles or Brita filters and reusable bags,” she said. “March for science, keep updated on the EPA and other political issues that concern climate. We can plant trees within our own communities.” last_img read more

Water polo falls to UCLA

first_imgSenior 2-meter Lachlan Edwards was a key contributor in the Trojans’ 12-11 triple-overtime loss to UCLA on Saturday. Photo by Tucker Judkins | Daily TrojanThe second-ranked men’s water polo team battled it out with No. 4 UCLA through three overtime periods on Saturday. The match in Westwood came down to a penalty shot awarded to UCLA, as the Bruins had the chance to earn the victory in a one-on-one showdown against senior goalie McQuin Baron. Alex Roelse’s skip-shot just sneaked past Baron’s right shoulder, and UCLA clinched a 12-11 victory. A match that ended in heartbreak started out much differently for the Trojans. USC asserted its dominance early, as freshman driver Marko Vavic sent a shot soaring into the back of the goal in the opening minutes of play. Senior utility James Walters followed up with another goal, staking the Trojans an early 2-0 lead.But the Bruins responded quickly. Following the first 2 USC goals, they quickly tied it up before the Trojans could extend their lead. The rest of the second period was a back-and-forth affair, but USC never trailed and eventually managed to take a 5-4 lead into halftime thanks to additional scores from senior driver Lazar Pasuljevic, junior driver Zach D’Sa and senior 2-meter Lachlan Edwards.Coming out of the locker room, senior driver Matteo Morelli sent one sailing past UCLA goalie Alex Wolf on USC’s first possession, padding USC’s advantage to 6-4. However, the Bruins scored 3 unanswered goals — 2 on the power play — to seize a 7-6 lead. The Trojans responded with 2 goals in the final minute of the third quarter before the Bruins converted another man-up opportunity to knot things at 8 goals apiece heading into the final quarter.The scoring slowed down in the fourth: Senior driver Blake Edwards capitalized on a power play to give USC the edge, but UCLA did the same to reestablish the deadlock. In the final three minutes of play, neither team could pull ahead, forcing overtime with the two sides tied at 9-9.After a long scoreless stretch from both teams, Blake Edwards sent a shot flying past Wolf’s outstretched left arm to give the Trojans a late lead in the first overtime period. But USC’s hopes lasted just nine seconds, as the Bruins responded with their own goal. It was 10-10.The Bruins’ reply forced the match into a second overtime, and this time, it was UCLA that scored first. Lachlan Edwards saved the Trojans with a backhanded shot that sailed past Wolf’s fingertips to tie things back up at 11-11 with only 38 seconds left.The match moved into sudden death in the third overtime period. After only a few minutes of play, the Bruins were awarded the decisive penalty shot that sent the Trojans home with a tough 12-11 loss.Despite a disappointing end to the regular season, the Trojans now look forward to the postseason. USC begins play in the MPSF Tournament as the No. 4 seed, and the team will kick off against Penn State Behrend at 10 a.m. on Friday before facing No. 3 Stanford at 3 p.m.last_img read more

Energy centres to power rural South Africa

first_imgRay Maota Qunu in the OR Tambo District Municipality is one of the areas in South Africa with an electrification backlog and the IEC initiative makes sure the people of the district have a source of energy. (Image: MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. Formore free photos, visit the image library) The Minister of Energy, Dipuo Peters said IECs are part of job creation. (Images: Public Eye Online) MEDIA CONTACTS • Pamilla Mudhray Sasol Corporate Social Investment +27 11 441 3597 RELATED ARTICLES • BP opens cutting-edge fuel lab in SA • Sasol’s R70m gas-testing centre • SA delves into carbon storage • Dulux Pierneef wins Sasol prizeAn Integrated Energy Centre (IEC), recently established in Qunu in the Eastern Cape, will hopefully broaden access to power in the rural village and address poverty in the region.The centre is a one-stop energy hub owned and operated by the local community. It provides safe and sustainable sources of energy and gives villagers information on how to handle and utilise them.Launched on 14 January 2011 by Sasol and the Department of Energy, the IEC will supply locals with paraffin, diesel, petrol, gas burner stoves and solar-powered devices.With the centre close by, villagers will no longer have to walk vast distances to source their energy, mostly in the form of paraffin and candles. There are still parts of the region that lack access to electricity.The centre, which cost R8-million (US$1.2-million) to establish, forms part of Sasol’s R20-million (US$2.9-million) drive to set up energy hubs in disadvantaged areas. Similar plants have been built in Limpopo, Northern Cape, KwaZulu-Natal and North West.At the Qunu launch, Minister of Energy Dipuo Peters said: “Last week the president stressed the need for us to focus very strongly on job creation. We believe that this IEC and the local enterprises that it could support will create the necessary jobs in this area.“The Qunu IEC is the first one to be linked to a library to ensure that information is accessible to local people. This would be enhanced by access to more information via the internet connected to the computers on site,” added Peters.The IEC also has an information centre and community room that can be used by people living in the area.Sasol media manager Nothemba Noruwana said: “The aim of these centres is also to inject profits back into the community by building schools, clinics and various other projects.”The IECs also have a village vendor network consisting of women and youngsters who go out and sell the energy products to people living further away from the centre so their travel costs are minimised.Mandela’s place of birthQunu is the birthplace of the first democratically elected president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela. In his autobiography, Long Walk to Freedom, Mandela describes Qunu as the place in which he spent most of his happiest moments as a child.Peters said: “The department has embarked on a special intervention to try and accelerate the electrification programme in the area. Funds are being allocated directly to the municipality to undertake electrification in Eskom’s area of supply.”Eskom is South Africa’s national electricity utility.“In the Qunu area, 300 connections were completed in December 2010 and a further 300 households will be connected by the end of January 2011. There is a backlog of 179 318 houses without electricity … the challenge for the department will be to ensure that sufficient funding is allocated in the following years so that the universal access is achieved by 2014,” added Peters.Petroleum giant Sasol is an energy and chemicals company which uses coal to produce petrol and gas.It was established in 1950 and today operates in more than 30 countries with about 35 000 employees.The company also sponsors various sporting teams and artistic and organisational events such as South Africa’s national rugby team, the Springboks; Banyana Banyana, South Africa’s national women’s football team; the annual Sasol Rally; the Sasol New Signatures art competition; the Black Tie Ensemble and the South African Youth orchestra.Sasol is listed on the Johannesburg and New York stock exchanges. The petrochemical company offers a bursary scheme which enables students from disadvantaged backgrounds to study engineering, science and commerce.last_img read more
