MaliAfrica Protecting journalists ViolenceFreedom of expression News After three journalists from the French TV channel TV5 Monde were briefly arrested shortly after landing in the Malian capital, Bamako, on 22 July to cover Mali’s presidential election on 29 July, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the authorities to guarantee the safety of media personnel and not obstruct election coverage. Kiosque à journaux de Bamako le 28 mai 2018 © Michele CATTANI / AFP A dozen journalists were chased away by police when they tried to cover a civil society and opposition march in Bamako on 2 June that had been banned. The Mali Maison de la Presse (House of the Press) issued a statement afterwards condemning the police use of “physical violence” and the “attempts to take cameras and other journalistic equipment.” Help by sharing this information RSF helps coordinate support for French journalist kidnapped in Mali June 8, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en “They asked us what we had come to do in Mali and whether we had done our military service, without our being able to understand what exactly we were accused of,” Ndiaye told RSF. The police used force to take Coquet’s mobile phone from him and did not return it until the end of the interrogation. Asked about the possibility of Internet cuts like those that occurred in August 2016, during protests against the arrest of an anti-government activist, Touré said there was “no plan to cut social networks during the election.” Mali is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Teens Coming Out

Add to that a child who is gay, and coping with not only his or her own sexuality, but the effect on those close to him, like parents and friends.Psychotherapist John Sovec will address this issue February 20 as part of the Fusion Academy’s Professional Speaker series. The interactive workshop will provideexploration, discussion, and tools to address the challenging issues facing LGBT teens as they discover their own sexuality.John Sovec, MA, LMFT, specializes in working with LGBT teens and their families during the coming-out process. He is a nationally recognized expert on LGBT teens and has been seen on the Ricki Lake Show, YHTV, The Advocate, Good Therapy and other programs.“This is something that early on in my career I ran into, while working with LGBT teens who felt totally unsupported in their lives and their community,” Sovec explained.“I started looking around and had to explore to find training to specialize in this, and be able to put together a strong set of skills. But in doing that, I realized there are very few people out there doing what I thought there was a need for. I work with family service agencies, schools, and fellow psychology professionals to help train them and educate them as well as offer seminars for teachers and staff,” said Sovec.A young gay teen will face challenges at school and at home, as Sovec explains. “If you really think about it, they’re living between their own developing LGBT identity and an environment where everything is skewed towards, ‘Okay, this is a straight world, this is how it is,’” he said.Sovec adds, “There’s no straight teen who has to come out and say, “By the way, I’m straight.”And while parents might be accepting, the challenge can go beyond that, says Sovec.“A lot of parents will come to me and say, ‘But they know that it wouldn’t be a problem.’ But that’s not the point. The point is actually that moment for that kid to say it out loud, how it will influence how their parents view them, what will it do to their school environment, because there will be some kids who will be comfortable with it, and some that may bully them and make fun of them, and how will teachers accept it? What about if they’re on a sports team? How will the team or the coach accept it? So there’s a lot of fear that comes out for these kids really looking at, ‘I’m making a statement about myself, and once I make that statement, I can’t take it back and it’s going to have huge repercussions on the community that I live, work and play in,’” he explained.Sovec’s workshop will explore the realm of teen gay sexuality, as he explained, saying, “We’re actually going to be looking at some of the real basic things, all of the different flavors of sexuality and sexual identity that are out there right now. We’re going to look at the developmental phase that happens in the coming out process. We’re going to look at what your kid is going through when they’re in the process of coming out and the stages of that. And we’re going to explore how the families, and adults and caring professionals can support that journey and be present with our kids.”Sovec realizes that coming out today is vastly different from even one or two generations ago, but says, “I think for each family that goes through it, it really is a very individual experience. A lot of kids will decide that there is one parent who it would be easier for them to come out to first, and then they’ll practice that and then come out to the other parent later on.“And I really think it depends a lot on the parents upbringing themselves,” he continued, “as well as cultural and spiritual components. We’re lucky because we’re in Pasadena, or Los Angeles, big cities where coming out is a more normalized experience. But when we move out of the bigger metropolitan areas, it still is a really challenging story for these kids to go through this.”Sovec continued, “Here in Pasadena, a lot of kids kind of initially come out as bisexual, and strangely enough it’s a cool thing to do these days. And, I think for kids come out as, being a gay or lesbian, it really does depend on the environment, their family their friends, and their school, as to how they’re accepted.”John Sovec will present his workshop at Fusion Academy February 20, at 6:30 p.m.Fusion AcademyPasadena is at 825 Colorado Bl., Suite 118, Los Angeles.To learn more about his work visit www.JohnSovec.com or www.GayTeenTherapy.comFusion Academy is a fully accredited, private, middle and high school where all classes are taught one to one.  After more than twenty years of helping students succeed in the San Diego area, Fusion opened its Pasadena campus in 2012.

FAI in Markets Field talks

first_imgLinkedin by Marie Hobbins and John O’ShaughnessyTHE Football Association of Ireland, under the stewardship of CEO John Delaney, has expressed a willingness to negotiate a deal to secure the Markets Field, after the Irish Greyhound Board vacate the property in 2010.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It could signal the return of League of Ireland football to the venue, with ‘homeless’ Limerick FC, in an agreement with the FAI, reclaiming it as their home.Several city councillors are keeping a watchful eye on developments, mindful, in the words of Kieran O’Hanlon, that they sold it for a song to Bord na gCon, a few years ago.Mr Delaney, who was a regular at greyhound meetings at the Markets Field with his father Joe Delaney, is determined that Limerick FC should become a force in Irish football and sees the Markets Field as another phase in their development.The then Limerick United vacated the Markets Field in 1984, to move to Hogan Park, Rathbane. They are now tenants of the Limerick District Management Committee, at Jackman Park.It is understood that Mr Delaney, together with Limerick FC owner Jack McCarthy, has entered into talks with Bord na gCon about a possible purchase.Work on the new greyhound stadium at Greenpark is expected to get underway in March, but whether it will be affected by the downturn in the economy, is a matter of conjecture. Limerick has been battling for well over a decade to acquire a new stadium. When asked if there was a possibility that commencement work at Greenpark might now be delayed, a spokesperson for the board asked that the request for information be put in writing.The most recent Bord n gCon report showed that losses of 245,000 euro were sustained at the Markets Field in 2007.Residents in the Garryowen area are also anxious to have the future of the Markets Field protected and secured, rather than it being sold for development purposes. Said Clr O’Hanlon:“Local people here would like to have a community centre and there’s interest in developing further educational facilities in there by the VEC.“We must have a meeting on this and produce some planning for a civic amenity there. We could find the money from various sources – there’s Lottery money, council funding and a private developer, as well as the FAI”.

Managers fail to see true ethnic ability

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. The apparent under-performance of ethnic minority employees is due to theperception of white managers rather than a true indication of their abilities,according to an Institute for Employment Studies report. Co-author of the IES report, Niidjan Tackey, comments, “While somestudies have found real differences in performance, the weight of evidencesuggests many of the observed differences are due to bias on the part of thosemaking performance judgements. In other words, some white managers assess theirminority ethnic subordinates on criteria other than their ability alone.” The report, called The Problem of Minority Performance in Organisations,advises HR departments to try to identify any bias in the performance of ethnicminority employees by examining their selection, recruitment and trainingprocesses. Tackey said, “In most organisations the fault doesn’t lie in thesystems but in their application.” Managers fail to see true ethnic abilityOn 5 Jun 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Spring mortality of the cyclopoid copepod Oithona similis in polar waters

first_imgThe cyclopoid copepod Oithona similis is highly abundant and ubiquitous in the marine epipelagic environment, yet rates of mortality in this species have rarely been quantified; indeed we are lacking such measurements for Copepoda in general in cold waters. In the present study we examined O. similis stage structure, egg production and mortality rates across the Scotia Sea, Southern Ocean, sampling from the ice edge to the Polar Front in the austral spring of 2006, The population stage structure near the retreating ice edge was indicative of a recruitment pulse moving through the younger stages; therefore, the assumptions of the vertical life table (VLT) approach were not met and mortality was not estimated for those stations. At all other stations the assumptions of VLT were largely met, and mortality rates were determined as across-station averages, The highest rates of mortality occurred across the egg to NIT stages at around 0.04 d(-1), falling to < 0.03 d(-1) in subsequent stages, and then increasing again to 0.11. d(-1) across copepod stage V to adult males. The ratio of adult males to females suggested that males have a mortality rate similar to 12 times greater than females (i.e. the adult male to female abundance ratio is 0.08). It is unlikely that these differences can be attributed simply to the males' shorter physiological longevity (longevity when free of predators); the primary cause is likely elevated predation mortality due to the risks associated with mate locating behaviour.last_img read more
