Sigma Nu to be officially chartered in April

first_imgprintSigma Nu’s waiting period ended after the chapter received a message approving the organization’s charter on the TCU campus.The fraternity received a message on Feb. 3 that approved its petition to be re-chartered.“The high council reviewed the petition and status of the Lambda Epsilon colony tonight, and they have enthusiastically approved the petition and confirmed the Lambda Epsilon colony as they have completed the requirements,” the message read.After five months of recruiting members, becoming involved on campus and setting up its petition, the fraternity will be officially chartered on April 8, said Sigma Nu member Tommy Nelson.TCU’s Sigma Nu chapter was the fastest chapter to be chartered in national Sigma Nu history, said Sigma Nu president Robert Leonard.Sigma Nu is also the largest fraternity colonization chapter in TCU history.“It’s exciting being part of something new that I was a part of building,” Nelson said.Sigma Nu was welcomed onto the TCU campus as a colony chapter last spring.The chapter had unofficially been a part of TCU in the past.In 1987, a group of TCU men moved into one of the houses behind Mellow Mushroom and pioneered TCU’s first Sigma Nu chapter.The fraternity was chartered by Sigma Nu national headquarters but was never officially recognized as an official IFC fraternity by TCU, said Mike Dilbeck, the TCU Sigma Nu chapter advisor.The fraternity dissolved from the TCU campus in 2002.Interfraternity Council President Diego Padilla said Sigma Nu was ranked No. 4 in grades last semester and has had a positive impact on campus.“I am excited to see how this chapter progresses in the future,” he said.Padilla said Sigma Nu will also have a house in the upcoming Greek village.“Sigma Nu not only had to overcome obstacles to be considered an ‘excellent chapter’ by headquarters, but I think we have established a leadership role on the TCU campus,” said Sigma Nu member Tommy Nelson.

Journalists targeted in attacks ahead of legislative elections

first_img Sri Lanka: tamil reporter held on absurd terrorism charge July 15, 2020 Find out more March 31, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists targeted in attacks ahead of legislative elections Follow the news on Sri Lanka Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Help by sharing this information Incitement to hatred in the mediaReporters Without Borders deeply regrets that some privately-owned media have been using hate speech towards religious and ethnic minorities.The organisation has found remarks that could incite hatred carried in some Sinhala publications. The minutes of meetings of the extremist Buddhist Party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) are often carried by newspapers without proper controls when they contain racist attacks against Tamils and Muslims. The daily Lankadeepa regularly carries speeches of JHU candidates hostile to the Tamils.These verbal abuses can also be found between two Tamil factions who are in opposition to one another since the withdrawal last March of the guerrilla leader Karuna from the LTTE. One journalist said recently, “After the rebellion by Karuna, we all live in fear. If we write one good thing about a poll candidate who supports Prabhakaran, or something critical to Karuna, we might not survive.” No journalist has been directly targeted in this struggle between Tamil factions, but the murder in eastern Batticaloa of a Tamil candidate favourable to Karuna can only be a bad omen.Aginst this background of political and community tensions, Reporters Without Borders is calling on the media not to incite vioIence and racism. News July 29, 2020 Find out more Sri Lanka: RSF signs joint statement on attacks against human rights defenders, lawyers and journalists Organisation center_img to go further News On the eve of 2 April 2004 legislative elections, Reporters Without Borders has recorded a series of physical attacks and threats against journalists and fears a further deterioration of the situation in the run-up to polling.The international press freedom organisation has appealed to candidates to see that such violence and threats against the press are stamped out.It pointed out that several journalists were killed or assaulted during the last legislative elections. One of these was a journalist in Jaffna, Mayilvaganam Nimalarajan, murdered in October 2000. It urged all political parties and armed groups, in particular the Tamil Tigers (LTTE), to guarantee the safety of journalists covering the elections.Violence against the pressA grenade was thrown, injuring a guard and damaging several vehicles, against the Colombo home of Raynor Silva, managing director of Asian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) on 28 March. It was probably intended to intimidate the director who has had to defend his five FM stations from hostility on the part of the media minister, Lakshman Kadirgamar. Last February the minister informed ABC its terrestrial TV licence had been cancelled.Police raided the premises of the newspaper The Sunday Leader, in Colombo on 28 March. Its publisher Lasantha Wikramatunga, said they did not have a search warrant and believed that the illegal search was part of ongoing government harassment against the weekly, which is known for its investigative reporting.Wimal Weerawansa, head of propaganda for the People’s Lberation Front (JVP – nationalist and Marxist party allied to President Chandrika Kumaratunga), made telephone threats on 10 March to Siri Ranasingha, editor in chief of the Sinhala-language newspaper Lankadeepa. The threats were prompted by the fact that the newspaper had carried advertising from another political party that had questioned his reputation. The head of the JVP apologised. The journalists’ organisation FMM said another newspaper boss, Dinesh Vihagun Fernando of the weekly Laknada had been threatened with reprisals by armed men.A crew from Young Asia Television was attacked on 2 March a rally by the extremist Buddhist party Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) in Kandy, central Sri Lanka. The crew were carrying out interviews in the crowd when JHU members surrounded and attacked them. They seized and destroyed their tapes and a woman member of the crew was targeted when the JHU members discovered she was a Christian. Supporters of JHU manhandled two cameramen from a privately-owned TV network during a meeting at Panadura in February.Political Interference in public and privately-owned mediaOnce again, coverage of the electoral campaign by the public and privately-owned media has not been fair and balanced. The public media, under the control of President Chandrika Kumaratunga since her declaration of a state of emergency in November 2003, has largely carried the policies of her party and those of political allies. In a bid to end this abusive use of state media, the independent electoral commission took control of public television and radio on 29 March 2004, under Article 27 of the 17th amendment to the Constitution. Retired high-ranking official Lakshman Perera was named as the head of public broadcast media. He said he would also control the government written press until the declaration of election results.Reporters Without Borders welcomes this decision that sets a significant precedent in Asia for the respect of the independence of publicly-owned media during elections.According to the main journalists’ organisation FMM, “the state media has not only become the trumpet of the SLFP and the JVP (coalition parties in the alliance headed by Chandrika Kumaratunga), but is also on a vicious mission to destroy the image of the other parties.”On 18 March, Laskman Gunasekara, editor in chief of the state weekly Sunday Observer, was suspended from editorial responsibility apparently because of his support for the independence of the media at election time.Journalist Asif Hussein had earlier, on 11 March, been sacked by the weekly for “causing irreparable harm to the company’s reputation by offending the feelings of the world community of Buddhists.” In January 2003, he published a polemical article on the relic of the Buddha’s tooth preserved in Sri Lanka. According to the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ), the head of a public radio station in south-eastern Uva province was removed from his post by the authorities. The journalists protested against his political interference.Harim Peiris, head of television named by the president, termed the decision of electoral commission as regrettable and unexpected. “At no time has the head of the commission been able to point to a precise violation of the code of conduct”, he told the press.This supporter of the head of state questioned the credibility of the electoral commission which, he said, has not imposed the code of conduct on the privately-owned media, who support the party of Prime Minister Ranil Wickremensinghe. People close to the head of government in fact run several private media.The free elections observatory (FPW) revealed that from 9 February to 9 March, the privately-owned media had been overwhelmingly favourable to the prime minister’s party. Private network Sirasa TV gavel 41 minutes coverage in its evening news bulletin at 7pm to the activities of the UNP and only 19 minutes to parties backing the president. This biased coverage is replicated in the news programmes of the channel TNL, which is owned by the prime minister’s brother.Reporters Without Borders has called on the independent electoral commission to challenge the private media proprietors to explain the advantages given to the party of Ranil Wickreminsinghe.

Heavy Internet censorship in Kazakhstan

first_img Help by sharing this information October 30, 2020 Find out more News Credit: Ruslan PRYANIKOV / AFP January 15, 2021 Find out more Reporters prevented from covering Kazakh parliamentary elections May 9, 2019 Heavy Internet censorship in Kazakhstan Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the massive Internet censorship that accompanied today’s opposition protests in Kazakhstan and calls on interim President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev to abandon the repressive practices of his predecessor, Nursultan Nazarbayev.Many news websites were inaccessible at dawn, including those of Radio Azattyk, the news agency Ferghana and the newspaper Uralskaya Nedelia, as well as the Vlast.kz, Informburo.kz, Exclusive.kz, Holanews.kz and Village.kz news sites.Access to Facebook, Telegram, YouTube and Instagram was disconnected at midday. In some places, mobile phone users reported problems connecting to the Internet. As in the past, the censorship was prompted by peaceful demonstrations throughout the country. This time, the protests were called by Mukhtar Ablyazov, a Kazakh oligarch and government opponent now living in exile.“There is no justification for this massive obstruction of the Kazakh public’s right to information,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “It is time for the authorities to abandon these repressive practices from an earlier era if they want their reformist discourse to be credible. Internet censorship is one of reasons why Kazakhstan is ranked only 158th in the World Press Freedom Index, a position that reflects badly on its international image.”Vlast.kz reporter Daniyar Moldabekov, whose coverage of the protests has been much followed in recent months, was arrested without any explanation this morning in Almaty and was held for an hour. Arrests of journalists during protests have become commonplace in Kazakhstan.The authorities are clearly nervous about the wave of demonstrations since Nazarbayev’s resignation in March after nearly 30 years as president. The “Leader of the Nation” is nonetheless keeping a tight grip on the country’s future and ensuring that continuity is maintained. His designated successor, Tokayev, is the clear favourite in the carefully controlled presidential election scheduled for 9 June.The regime has constantly tightened its grip on the media and Internet in recent years. The main opposition national newspapers were all banned in 2012, Inernet is tightly controlled, and even media outlets that express little criticism are now being targeted.Kazakhstan is ranked 158th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

This week the VP of Housing Finance Policy Laurie Goodman examines the future of household growth, headship rate (the share of adults who are the heads of households), and the homeownership rate (the share of household heads who own their homes) through 2040.”To create a more equitable and sustainable housing landscape, policymakers, thought leaders, and changemakers need to understand the trajectory of the homeownership rate—where it has been, where it is going, who it has benefitted, and who it has left behind,” Goodman explained.To get a grasp on this trajectory, Goodman and associates analyzed household formation and homeownership over time, showing how a combination of economic cycles and public policies have widened racial homeownership gaps.A few of the key findings are listed below. See the full report at urban.org/research.Household growth will be weak over the next two decades. Household growth averaged 12.4 million per decade from 1990-2010, 7.3 million from 2010-2020 and, we project 8.5 million from 2020-2030 and 7.6 million from 2030-2040″—the decline is a result of slowing population growth and lower headship rates for most age groups.All net household growth will be from households of color. Between 2020 and 2040, there will be 16.1 million net new households. Hispanic households will grow by 8.6 million, households of other races (mostly Asian households) will grow by 4.8 million, and Black households will grow by 3.4 million. White households will decline by 0.6 million.”Almost all net household growth will be from senior households.The homeownership rate will continue to fall for every age group.The decline in the homeownership rate will be particularly pronounced for Black households headed by 45-to 74-year-olds. If current policies stay the same, the Black homeownership rate will fall well below the rate of previous generations at the same age and result in an unprecedented number of Black renters over 65; we project elderly Black renters will more than double from 1.3 million in 2020 to 2.6 million in 2040.”Net growth in the number of homeowners from 2020 to 2040 will be entirely among people of color, especially Hispanic homeowners. Between 2020 and 2040, there will be 6.9 million net new homeowner households, a 9% increase. Hispanic homeowners will grow by 4.8 million, homeowners of other races (mostly Asian homeowners) will grow by 2.7 million, and Black homeowners will grow by 1.2 million. The total number of white homeowners will decline by 1.8 million.”Renter growth will be more than twice the pace of homeowner growth from 2020 to 2040. Armed with understanding, policymakers should focus on policies that address seniors’ specific needs, Goodman says, and should prepare for the surge in renters and coming demographic changes, we need to increase the supply of affordable homes and better tailor these homes to the needs of future owners and renters through more flexible zoning and land use regulations.In addition, leaders must also make a concerted effort to decrease the enormous racial homeownership gap by improving and expanding financial education and homeownership preparation and increasing the visibility, access, and types of down payment assistance programs; re-examine how financial institutions qualify borrowers for mortgages and revamp the process to more precisely assess creditworthiness; and implement programs that sustain homeownership for borrowers with less wealth, especially people of color.

Nulli argued that the petitioner is at an advanced stage of pregnancy and is stuck in the United States along with her 18 month old daughter & husband. Thus, any more delay for repatriation would be disastrous on her health.”The Petitioner No. 1 is in the third trimester (final stage) of her pregnancy and is living in an extreme state of uncertainty and in a condition proving fatal to herself and the fetus” – Excerpt from PetitionWhen the matter came up for hearing, the bench was initially inclined to serve a copy on the Solictor General but list it for tomorrow but then passed it over.Advocate Nulli had insisted that as the “flight is tomorrow, this order would not serve any purpose” Apropos this, when the passed over matter was taken up again, the bench observed that it was not inclined to pass any orders but asked the Government to take cognisance of the issue accordingly.The petition had contended that the Pooja Chaudhary and her family had return flights to India after a composite business trip on April 6. However,  “owing to the restrictions imposed by the Director General of Civil Aviation vide Circulars dated 19.03.2020, 26.03.2020 and 14.04.2020 on the operation of international flights, the Petitioners have been stranded in the USA”In light of the above, petitioner had prayed to be rescued with “appropriate arrangements” for their travel to India via “Air India Flight No. AI 174 which is scheduled to depart from San Francisco on 13th May 2020 or at the next earliest possible opportunity” as well was directions to ensure that she has access to proper medical facilities.The Supreme Court has been taking up evacuation petitions of several stranded Indian Citizens since the lockdown was imposed in India and international cross-border Air travel had been blocked.On May 8, While hearing a plea on behalf of over 250 pregnant Indian women praying for evacuation from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Supreme Court observed that women who are at the final stage of pregnancy (Third Trimester) must be given top priority for purposes of repatriation.The Centre had issued Standard Operating Protocols on May 6 for evacuation of Indian Citizens stranded Abroad amid the pandemic.Termed the “Vande Bharat Mission”, the evacuation has been started at the behest of Government.

FROM COURT TO FARM: Mary Dubose and Chanda Rigby participate in Farm City Job Swap

first_imgLatest Stories Email the author Book Nook to reopen Dubose, who is at home on the farm in Banks, and Rigby, whose home court is Trojan Arena, seemed to be at odds, professionally. However, Dubose was a student of basketball. She played guard and point guard for the Dixie Academy Rebels and Rigby grew up on a dairy farm in Franklinton, Louisiana.But the dye had been cast. The invitations had been issued and accepted.  The show must go on and it could not have been a better show. From the minute they met, Dubose and Rigby “hit it off.” Even though each was familiar with the other’s profession, the Job Swap experience was a unique way to spend a girls’ day out.Rigby is the women’s basketball coach at Troy University and she invited Dubose into the locker room prior to the team’s tune-up contest against a Brazilian professional team, Uninassau, on November 1 and then to be her “bench assistant” during the game. Her advice to the team was “if you’re in the paint, don’t put the ball on the floor” and  “watch the gut.” “A ball handler can fool you with head fakes,” Dubose said. “But watch the gut. It doesn’t lie.”Dubose had been to Trojan Arena for a graduation ceremony but not for a basketball game.“The arena has a different feel when it’s a basketball game,” she said. “I really enjoyed it and I’ll be back to see Chanda’s team and probably the men’s team, too.”Rigby was at Dubose Farm in Banks early Thursday morning. She had her boots on and was ready to witness the birth of Paisley’s calf.  She hopped in the truck with Dubose, riding shotgun.“That means you have to get out and open the gates,” Dubose said, laughing.The cow herd was grazing in a pasture just down the road. Dubose was the first out of the truck in an effort to located Paisley. But to the surprise of both Rigby and Dubose, Paisley had already given birth and had the calf hidden safely away.“I was disappointed,” Rigby said. “But I enjoyed walking among the cows in the pasture. I even liked the way it smelled. Reminded me of home.” Back home in Louisiana, Husser Farms was home to 100 dairy cows and eight were milked each morning and night. Cows don’t go on vacation. Rigby, laughingly, said she didn’t have any plans to be a milkmaid.“I didn’t like milking,” she said. “I think milking is why I started playing basketball. If I was at practice or at games, I didn’t have to milk.”Rigby got a “turn” behind tractor wheel and Dubose taught her how to use a disc plow. “Driving a tractor is more complex than I thought,” Rigby said. “Driving the tractor was a new experience and I loved being out in the fields. It was so quiet and peaceful.”At the day’s end, Rigby and Dubose said their goodbyes having formed a friendship that probably would never have happened had they not “job swapped.”They were both better for the experience. Although, Rigby’s at home in the gym, she knows where she can go to find peace and quiet.  Dubose’s home is on the farm but, if things get too quiet on the farm, she knows where to go. Rigby thought she would give Mary a few minutes to give the team a pep talk before they went out on the court. She expected a “go team, win” kind of response from Dubose.“But I was shocked,” Rigby said, laughing. “She knew basketball. She gave a great pep talk. I didn’t expect it.  We could learn something from her.”Dubose said just harkened back to her days on the court.“Basketball was different for me. We didn’t have the three-point shot. I couldn’t have hit it anyway. But I knew about man-to-man defense and zone defense.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day FROM COURT TO FARM: Mary Dubose and Chanda Rigby participate in Farm City Job Swap Skip Published 3:00 am Saturday, November 12, 2016 By The Penny Hoarder Above, Chanda Rigby, left, Troy University Women’s basketball coach, and Mary Dubose, owner of farm in Banks participated in The Pike County Farm City Job Swap program. Rigby and Dubose surprisingly had knowledge in each others jobs and spent the time learning from each other.The drumming of the basketball on the hardwood is music to the ears of Mary Dubose just as it is to Chanda Rigby.The mooing of the mama cow is as familiar to Chanda Rigby as it is to Mary Dubose.The Pike County Farm City Job Swap committee probably didn’t know that when they invited Dubose and Rigby to participate in the 2016 Farm-City Job Swap. The annual “swap” is designed for members of the rural and urban communities to swap jobs for a day. The purpose is for each to gain a better understanding of and appreciation for what the other does.

first_imgWe hope that today’s “IS IT TRUE” will provoke honest and open dialogue concerning issues that we, as responsible citizens of this community, need to address in a rational and responsible way?IS IT TRUE that this is the week of the Westside Nut Clubs Fall Festival and nearly every person who grew up in or around Evansville is planning to attend to enjoy fun, games and a plethora of very odd things to eat?…there always seems to be a long line to get brain sandwiches that are not particularly appreciated across the country but it is an Evansville delicacy?…there are plenty of other different sorts of culinary treats like chocolate-covered insects, deep-fried everything, and lots of good carnival treats?…a good time will be had by most and plenty of charities and religious organizations will raise funds to be deployed to help people in need?…the Fall Festival is a truly unique Evansville experience?IS IT TRUE that City Councilman Justin Elpers will propose changes to the City’s Health Insurance Plan at this coming Monday’s City Council meeting that will address the $3.4 million Hospitalization deficit?  …we give five (5) cheers to the current 5th Ward City Councilman Justin for thinking outside the box?  …we can’t wait to see if other City Council members will support Mr.Elpers worthwhile “Good  Public Policy” ordinance?IS IT TRUE that former City-County Observer editor and content contributor Joe “Jack” Wallace got a nice surprise this week when the California Alliance for Renewable Energy underwrote the purchase of 900 copies of his book Living Outside the Box?…this is the largest single order that has been placed for Joe’s book and it will be provided to all of the attendees of a large convention that will be attended by business leaders who are interested in economic activity and green businesses?IS IT TRUE that we would like to congratulate Joe  “Jack” Wallace on his continued success of “Living Outside the Box” and are looking forward to welcoming him to town for the October 25th CCO “OUTSTANDING COMMUNITY SERVICE” awards luncheon to be held at the Tropicana-Evansville?IS IT TRUE that Evansville, Indiana is a traditional Democrat town and the political blood of this town still runs blue in spite of the recent success of the Vanderburgh County Republican Party in placing winning candidates on both the Evansville City Council and in the Mayor’s office?IS IT TRUE that the local Republican party had better not take it for granted that they will be emerging with a majority of the seats on the Council because Evansville has a history of supporting Democrats?IS IT TRUE the damage done to the fundraising capacity of the Vanderburgh County Democrat Party is something that the City-County Observer predicted in 2011 when the last Democrat mayor was told that Rick Davis would be running for the Democrat nomination?…that sent the former Mayor and many of his minions into a fit of rage that literally destroyed the cohesiveness that the Democrats had enjoyed for years?IS IT TRUE between Floatgate, a surrogate of the former Mayor seeking the nomination, and Rick Davis’ victory, the seeds of destruction had been planted?…the local Republican party have been on an upswing ever since and all indications are that with a political war chest that the Democrats cannot compete with, the consequences of the arrogance of 2011 will continue for another election cycle?IS IT TRUE that the local Republican party is currently experiencing some political infighting within their own ranks?  …we predict that local Republican party movers and shakers will regret that they showed favoritism towards a couple of City Council candidates listed on the November General election ballot?IS IT TRUE that our current “CCO MOLE” membership is now a 152 strong?  …because of our “Working Outside The Box” speakers series we have picked up 17 new ” CCO MOLES”? …  that five (5) “CCO MOLES” passed away during the last several years and we really miss them?IS IT TRUE we would like to wish one of the top community cheerleaders, Steve Hammer a happy 50th birthday?IS IT TRUE we been told that the Vanderburgh County GOP party chairman Wayne Parke is president of Parkes Consulting firm?  …many people have asked us what kind of consulting work does he do?  …our answer is maybe he is consulting people on “How To Win Friends And Influence People”?IS IT TRUE starting next the City-County Observer welcomes any local candidate running for elected office to send us a position paper?  …we will print it without opinion, editing or bias?Today’s “Readers Poll” question is:  Do you think that the Republicans will take control of the 2020 City Council?We are pleased to provide obituaries from area funeral homes at no cost.  We are also are pleased to announce that we are now providing news from all of the area High Schools.
