Outcry over firing of TV news director and presenter Mauricio Funes

first_imgNews Salvadorean president’s alarming hostility towards independent media February 18, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Outcry over firing of TV news director and presenter Mauricio Funes 2 June 12, 2020 Find out more El SalvadorAmericas 21.02.2005 The decision by Salvadorean TV station Canal 12 to fire news director and presenter Mauricio Funes and seven other journalists continues to elicit criticism from many quarters, including President Antonio Saca.”As someone who supports free expression, I regret that his programme has been stopped,” said President Saca, a former sports journalist and radio producer, on 19 February, while stressing that he could not “meddle in company decisions as President of the Republic.”Herminia Funes, the president of the Association of Journalists of El Salvador (APES), said on 20 February: “We have insisted that forums offering diverse news and information should not be closed, because the closure of these spaces is a harsh blow to free expression in this country.”Human rights ombudsman Beatrice Alamanni voiced her “concern” on 19 February about “events likely to obstruct the right to freedom of expression and undermine the practice of independent journalism.”Accompanied by demonstrators, San Salvador archbishop Fernando Saez warned on 20 February that “peace will not be attained by silencing the voice of the people.”___________________The TV station Canal 12 cut short Mauricio Funes’s interview programme, La Entrevista al Día, as it was being broadcast live on 16 February, a day after several of Funes’s fellow workers were fired.Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today about the decision of the privately-owned TV station Canal 12 to cut short Mauricio Funes’s interview programme, La Entrevista al Día, as it was being broadcast live on 16 February, and about the dismissals of several of Funes’s fellow workers the previous day.”This is not the first time that Mauricio Funes has had one of his programmes suspended, so the series of sanctions applied to members of his team is worrying,” the press freedom organization said. “If it is established that these decisions were politically motivated, they will constitute a serious press freedom violation.”The Canal 12 management pulled the plug on Funes’s programme just after it began, as he was complaining on the air about the difficulties his team was encountering in its work.Five of his most important fellow-workers – including the news programme’s chief producer, the press attached, the person in charge of interviews and the researcher – had been fired the day before. Two other staff members working on another programme were also dismissed.The daily newspaper Probidad said Funes was unable to get any explanation for the dismissals. The managing director reportedly just told him the decision came from AZTECA, the Mexican company that owns the San Salvador-based TV station.Sin Censura, another programme presented by Funes, was censored and taken off the air in May 2003 by the management of Canal 12 (which used to be called TV 12). Journalist Kristin Neubauer said this occurred after Funes was scathing about the government’s poor handling of relief operations after the January 2003 earthquake.Funes is known for presenting programmes in which guests are invited to discuss the country’s current affairs in a very outspoken manner.

Naval Group, Airbus to work on French Navy helicopter drone

first_img View post tag: French Navy View post tag: Naval Group Share this article Naval Group, Airbus to develop rotary wing UAV demonstrator for French Navy The French defense procurement agency DGA (Direction générale de l’armement) has awarded the Naval Group and Airbus Helicopters consortium a contract to develop a rotary wing unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) demonstrator for the French Navy.According to a Naval Group announcement, the contract covers de-risking studies ahead of constructing a future tactical helicopter drone demonstrator.The demonstration project will lead to trials of the drone launch system, mission system and the airborne vehicle, conducted from a French Navy vessel.The purpose of the contract awarded by the DGA is to identify, deploy and test the technologies necessary for the integration of a tactical drone-system capacity within a heavily armed vessel. It forms part of the preparation of the SDAM (Navy Airborne Drone System), whose entry into service is foreseen for the middle of the next decade on new Intermediate-Size Frigates (FTIs) and other French Navy ships.The study will help select the principal technologies for the SDAM and the identification of the technical risks necessary for initiating and realising the programme. The level of technological maturity sought is that of a demonstrator of the complete system in a representative environment.Naval Group and Airbus Helicopters will be jointly responsible for the industrial project management and will coordinate wider input from French industry/sector. Other French defense technology companies including Hélicoptères Guimbal, Safran, Thales and ONERA will be principal subcontractors on the project.“We are proud to have been selected by the DGA together with our long-standing partner Airbus Helicopters to allow the French Navy to integrate aerial drone systems into its units and strengthen its operational capabilities,” Hervé Guillou, president and CEO of Naval Group, commented.Naval Group further said it had already started working on naval integration of an aerial drone in 2005. Between this date and today, the DGA has given the group several studies contracts that led to develop this technology (R&D contract IND, R&D contract D2AD, Serval).The UAV platform that will serve as the basis for the project is Airbus Helicopters-developed VSR700 rotary wing, optionally manned helicopter.This 700-kg drone, derived from a light civilian helicopter, the Cabri G2, started a campaign of autonomous flights in June 2017 using an unmanned Cabri G2 prototype to validate the integration of the flight control systems and the vehicle’s new engine system, opening the way for the first flight of the VSR700 in 2018.“I would like to thank the DGA and the French Navy for the trust they have placed in the VSR700 drone which, thanks to the combined experience of Airbus Helicopters and Naval Group, is expected to play a crucial role in the aero-maritime operation theatres of tomorrow,” declared Guillaume Faury, CEO of Airbus Helicopters.The VSR700 can exceed 10 flight hours of operational autonomy and has a payload capacity of up to 150 kg.

The Energy and Mineral Resources (ESDM) Ministry will issue a new regulation later in March to set up a floor price for nickel ore to ensure fair business practices in the domestic nickel market following the introduction of the nickel ore export ban in January of this year.The ministry’s mineral business development director Yunus Saefulhak said that all smelting companies should adhere to the floor price, which is to be set and regularly adjusted by the government based on prices on the international market and the operating costs of local miners.He said the floor price would be monitored closely and smelting companies that did not obey it would receive a sanction from the ministry.The government, through Energy and Mineral Resources Ministerial Regulation No. 11/2019, pushed the nickel ore export ban forward to January 2020, two years earlier than the date set by Min… Linkedin LOG INDon’t have an account?

Coronavirus outbreak may end in June with ‘mudik’ ban: IDI

first_imgPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo announced on Tuesday a nationwide ban on this year’s mudik. Previously, his administration had only advised the public to avoid the tradition this year, stopping short of an outright ban.He announced the ban after reading a Transportation Ministry survey that found that 24 percent of the country’s 270 million people still planned to leave for their hometowns and that 7 percent had already left.Read also: MUI: ‘Mudik’ from virus-affected areas ‘haram’About 20 million people from Greater Jakarta return to their hometowns annually to celebrate Idul Fitri in the tradition of mudik. The expected volume of travelers had previously raised concerns of wider contagion. Public health experts said it could cause the coronavirus to spread on a massive scale across Java. Jakarta and its satellite cities are among the hardest-hit areas in Indonesia. The capital itself is the national epicenter of the virus.Without the mudik ban, a number of people would have unknowingly carried the virus to their hometowns, Slamet said, which could have created a second wave of the disease.“Jakarta might have eventually flattened the curve, but [if mudik were not banned] the outbreak epicenters would have shifted to villages,” he said.As of Wednesday, Indonesia had confirmed 7,418 cases of COVID-19 with 635 deaths. Of those, Jakarta had reported 3,383 cases and 301 deaths, nearly half the country’s cases.Critics, however, have said that Jokowi’s mudik ban came too late as thousands of people had been returning to their hometowns since late last month. (aly) Topics :center_img The central government’s ban on the Idul Fitri tradition of mudik (exodus) is likely to help break the chain of COVID-19 contagion in the country and may cause the nation’s outbreak to end in June, according to the Indonesian Doctors Association (IDI).IDI deputy chairman Slamet Budiarto said the mudik (exodus) ban, coupled with the extension of large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) currently in place in virus-plagued areas, would help clamp down on COVID-19 transmission.”With the mudik ban and extended PSBB, I predict the [nation’s outbreak] may end in June,” Slamet said as quoted by on Tuesday.last_img read more

Students react to new safety plan

first_imgSeveral students said they believe new safety measures announced Tuesday by USC President C. L. Max Nikias are improvements to on-campus safety.The new policies come after four victims sustained gunshot wounds on Oct. 31 in an on-campus shooting. The incident occurred after a suspect, not affiliated with the university, got in an argument with Geno Hall, a former Crenshaw High football star, at a Halloween party promoted by LA Hype in association with the Black Student Assembly.The new security policies include banning outside event promoters and requiring university identification to enter campus between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. The university also plans to increase surveillance and the number of security guards on the perimeter of campus.Vice President for Student Affairs Michael Jackson said student groups were consulted and briefed before the changes were announced.Several student leaders said the new changes are likely to enhance on-campus security. Mikey Geragos, Undergraduate Student Government President, said banning promoters should give student groups more oversight of their events.“I think we are all in agreement of having party promoters on campus was probably not a good idea,” Geragos said. “When you get party promoters involved … there is always the risk they could advertise to people who they shouldn’t advertise to and you don’t have control of what’s being put out there.”Molly Russell, a senior majoring in public relations, said she supports the policy for checking IDs to enter campus at night, but is not convinced that banning promoters will solve any safety issues on campus.“The ID thing is huge. I think it’s a logical step that should have been taken years ago. This area is not very safe, and that’s always going to be a challenge,” Russell said. “But I don’t think the promoter thing will really help. USC is supposed to be integrated with the community, so I think it’s weird to go back on that by not allowing them to hold events.”According to Geragos, events will still be open to individuals in the community, but USC will be checking IDs at the door.“We wanted to make sure there was a good way to monitor [events] without excluding those guests,” Geragos said.The university expects all new policies to be fully implemented by Jan. 14, 2013 — the first day of the spring semester.Arya Roshanian, a sophomore majoring in vocal arts, doubts that the Dept. of Public Safety will be able to enforce the new safety measures during times when there is a high volume of students on campus.“I’m not sure how it’s going to work with crowds,” Roshanian said. “During finals week, so many people go to campus at night to study and everything. How will they handle it when a big hoard of people is trying to get on campus?”Nikias also said that the university will increase the amount of DPS officers stationed on campus and at campus and residence hall entrances. The banning of outside event promoters will extend to the Row.Student Affairs consulted the Inter-Fraternity Council before announcing the changes. IFC President Michael Madden noted that the ban on promoters does not apply to party planners.Madden said some fraternities have already started checking student IDs at the door -— a policy IFC hopes to make mandatory for all fraternities.“That’s an idea that has been discussed and will probably be implemented next spring,” Madden said. “We are still in the process of working out the logistics of it.”Some students, such as Sheun Alli, a junior majoring in business administration, said that staying safe is mainly up to the individual.“People just need to be careful,” Sheun said. “The school can do whatever they want, but we’re still in South Central.”last_img read more

He allows us to help him and I think that is pretty cool,” Nolte said.Nolte pointed out the primary drawings and sketches that were used in developing the characters. He also mentioned the difficulties in the process of making the characters come to life.Nolte debated with his animation team over how to design the jaw structure of the dinosaurs in the film. He had to deviate from scientific accuracy in order to create a suitable character for the film.“We had fun working [to] create these dinosaurs. I grew up a dinosaur fan … I was a T-Rex fan, so I was very stoked to work with these characters,” Nolte said about his enthusiasm for creating the characters of Arlo and his dinosaur family members.Jurassic film · Matt Nolte, character art director for The Good Dinosaur, speaks at the School of Cinematic Arts Thursday evening. – Dina Colunga | Daily TrojanWhen showing clips from the film, Nolte highlighted scenes of nature depicted in the movie. Nolte said that he is satisfied with the movie’s depictions of the environment as the director wanted to make the world in the film feel natural and real, a world before human civilization.“A lot of Pixar films talk a lot.
