Independent daily threatened with bomb

June 12, 2021

first_img News Reporters Without Borders is concerned by the lack of official response after journalists of the newspaper Express received blatantly threatening anonymous calls and thugs appeared in its editorial offices two days ago. “These intolerable incidents are indicative of the pressure to which investigative journalists are subjected in Kosovo,” the press freedom organization said.“We call on the authorities to ensure the safety of the Express staff, and to identify and prosecute those responsible for the threats. More generally, the public authorities must do all they can to protect independent and investigative media.“The country’s progress towards memership of the European Union requiries that highly sensitive subjects, such as organized crime and corruption, can be investigated.” KosovoEurope – Central Asia June 14, 2018 Find out more Kosovar investigative journalist assaulted in Pristina The pressures began after the paper published an article on 27 March which raised questions about the quality of fuel distributed by some oil companies, and referred to sanctions imposed on them by the ministry of trade and industry as a result. In response, a number of intruders entered the newspaper’s offices and threatened the editorial staff. One of the journalists told Reporters Without Borders that an anonymous caller threatened to put a bomb in the building.An investigation has been launched and the police have interviewed members of staff. Yet so far no safety precautions have been taken and the government has issued no official response.A day earlier, a feasibility study was officially launched into Kosovo’s possible candidacy for membership of the EU. Kosovo is ranked 87th in the latest world press freedom index compiled by Reporters Without Borders and journalists there regularly come under pressure, often resulting in self-censorship. In light of this, Express’s publication of its article on 27 March was a significant act.“If Kosovo aspires to join the European Union, it must apply itself to promoting genuine indepedence for its journalists and ensuring freedom of information,” Reporters Without Borders added. “In a democracy, the state has to be responsible for the safety of journalists and other sources of news and information.” June 29, 2020 Find out more March 30, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent daily threatened with bomb RSF_en Follow the news on Kosovo to go further Receive email alerts News Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage News KosovoEurope – Central Asia Concern about investigative reporter’s disappearance in Serbia Organisation Help by sharing this information News August 18, 2017 Find out morelast_img read more

XXXTentacion hit “Arms Around You” enters Billboard chart posthumously

August 31, 2020

first_imgWith co-production credits for a posthumous XXXTentacion hit song, Jamaican music producer Jon FX hopes his former protégé reaches the heights he failed to achieve when he was alive. ‘Arms Around You’ entered the Billboard R&B Streaming Chart at number one last week, and number 14 on the magazine’s Hot 100. This week, it dropped a notch to number two and number 56, respectively, but with a new XXXTentacion album scheduled to drop in December, the single is likely to enjoy a resurgence.Jamaican ParentsBorn in Plantation, Florida, XXXtentacion, whose parents are Jamaican, was 20 years-old when he was killed by gunmen in June this year at a Deerfield Beach car dealership. Four men have since been arrested in connection with his death.Jon FX, whose real name is Jon Crawford, produced several songs with XXXtentacion including ‘I Don’t Even Speak Spanish LOL’, which is from the rapper’s second album which went number one on the Billboard 200 Album Chart in March.Born in Kingston, Jon FX has called South Florida home for the past 15 years. He has produced songs by premier dancehall and hip-hop acts including Sizzla, Gyptian, Akon and Busta Rhymes.“Arms Around You”XXXTentacion was Producer’s greatest success  His greatest success came with XXXTentacion whom he met six years ago when the confused teen was keen to embark on a music career. They first lay tracks for ‘Arms Around You’ in 2016.For Jon FX, who co-produced the song with Skrillex and Mally Mall, its success is a big deal. “Being number one on the R&B Streaming Song Chart sure changes the caliber of artist/songs world-wide presence,” he said. Growing up, Jon Crawford was fascinated by music and its production aspect. His heroes included Sly and Robbie and Quincy Jones, but he admired the American producer Burt Bacharach’s distinctive style “for his writing and composition which honed an entire era.”  Billboard reports that the upcoming XXXTentacion album is likely to hit number one on several of its charts. That would be another achievement for Jon’s former mentor whose objective was “to take him out of the hip-hop stigma and into the world’s eyes.”last_img read more

Togo coach in quit threat

August 28, 2020

first_imgTogo coach Didier Six says he may quit the national team if his preparations for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations continue to be undermined.Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has already issued a threat to the Togolese Football Federation (TFF) stating that he would pull out of the touring squad if money owed to him and his international teammates are not paid in full.The dispute stretches as far back as the 2006 World Cup where it is claimed the federation failed to make good on payment promises.And with this money dispute hanging over his side’s preparations, Six admitted he may have no choice but to walk away from his job.He told Radio France International: “I’m held hostage by the situation and I have no other solution but to think about my future.“This raises inevitable questions about a year spent putting a team together and then the entire edifice crumbling inside a very short time. “I’m not the type to abandon ship if things go wrong but I’m not one to try and keep the balance either.”Goalkeeper Kossi Agassa added: “We believed the problems would be solved and we would prepare for the Nations Cup in a good atmosphere.“But if the coach goes and Adebayor is not there, then you can expect others will also pull out.”Togo have been grouped with tournament favourites Ivory Coast and previous winners Algeria and Tunisia.last_img read more

Cllr McBrearty: ‘A fine Gael member has attacked my family and in a personal way’

December 21, 2019

first_imgFrank McBrearty has claimed that he and his family were ‘attacked in a personal way’ in a statement confirming his resignation form the Fine Gael party.The Raphoe politician issued a statement through his Facebook page on Saturday night, suggesting that he will be ‘issuing legal proceedings in the coming days’.The Raphoe man, who joined the Fine Gael ticket in the run up to the local elections, was last weekend re-elected to Donegal County Council after taking 1,208 votes in the Stranorlar/Lifford area. McBrearty’s acceptance into the party caused strife internally and this week the matter came to a head.Just three days after the election count, it emerged that McBrearty was on the verge of quitting Fine Gael and he told Donegal Daily that there was a ‘concerted effort to get me out’.On Saturday morning, McBrearty confirmed that he offered his resignation to the party and it was accepted.“For the record I have officially resigned from the Fine Gael Party on Thursday. I was approached by Fine Gael to run in the Local Elections,” the statement read. “My team and I decided to accept on the condition that I would not run for the Dail or the Senate and that they couldn’t gag me.“I told them I was only interested in representing my communities in east Donegal on Donegal County Council.“I was not informed by them about the internal turmoil the party was in and if I had knew about it I would not have joined them.”Fine Gale Councillor Martin Harley topped the poll in the Stranorlar/Lifford area. McBrearty, previously an Independent, had won a second seat under the Fine Gael umbrella and a third FG candidate, Garvan Connolly, narrowly missed out on a seat.McBrearty said: “Fine Gael brought me in to build the party along with 4 fantastic women candidates and some other new candidates. It is my opinion that due to internal problems in the party it cost them at least 4 seats. “A fine Gael member has attacked my family and I in a personal way that affected my family and I mentally and we will be issuing legal proceedings in the coming days.“My family have been severely traumatised by what has been on going for weeks. Let me make this clear that I’m not intimidated by anyone but this has affected me mentally watching my family suffering at the abuse being thrown at me.“My personal vote elected me and gave me a mandate to represent them. 5 years ago Fine Gael in the Stranorlar MD only had 1800 votes. This time they had 3366 votes and almost got a third candidate elected.“I have served the people of east Donegal honestly and I dedicated my life to representing the most vulnerable. Due to legal reasons I can’t say much more but watch this space.” McBrearty closed the statement referencing an old Latin legal maxim ‘Let justice be done though the heavens fall.’Cllr McBrearty: ‘A fine Gael member has attacked my family and in a personal way’ was last modified: June 4th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:2019 Donegal Local ElectionsDonegal County CouncilFine GaelFrank McBreartyRaphoelast_img read more

Germany Reconstructing Nazi Medical Atrocities

December 19, 2019

first_imgGerman scientists who studied euthanasia victims’ brains “were very good researchers of international standing.”Could it happen again? Compare what we reported two days ago from Nature with a report by Megan Gannon in Science. You may never see a more glaring case of cognitive dissonance than Big Science’s convoluted attitudes about medical experimentation on the helpless.We reported Nature‘s callous disregard for the lives of the unborn, and their hostile attacks on those who try to save millions of unborn babies from being killed without mercy so that their parts can be chopped up and sold to “researchers” for experimentation. But in Gannon’s report, Big Science in America and in Germany are now exhibiting holy remorse for the evils that occurred 80 years ago in Nazi Germany, when the Reich killed a mere 200,000 deemed unfit. Scientists of the day welcomed the victims’ brains and body parts for their research interests. Gannon says that Germany’s Max Planck Institute (MPG), which was complicit with the “medical research” in Nazi days, is now, going to extraordinary lengths – in a form of institutional penance – to uncover details of individuals who were killed, so that their personal stories can be told.The project’s impetus is MPG’s desire to take moral responsibility for unethical research that its forerunner, the Kaiser Wilhelm Society (KWG), conducted on euthanasia victims and their remains. “We want to find out who the victims were, uncover their biographies and their fates, and as such give them part of their human dignity back and find an appropriate way of remembrance,” says Heinz Wässle, an emeritus director of the neuroanatomy department at the Max Planck Institute for Brain Research in Frankfurt, Germany, and head of an MPG committee overseeing the new investigation.In the 1980s and 1990s, MPG and KWG buried much of the evidence as a dubious token of “respect for the victims.” Those actions, however, destroyed chances of reconstructing the individual stories of those who perished. Now, however, additional slides of brain scans from victims have come to light. The MPG feels that up to 5,000 victims can finally have their stories told. Gannon opens with one such story that puts a human face on an otherwise unknown victim:Soon after Hans-Joachim was born, it was clear that something was terribly wrong. The infant boy suffered from partial paralysis and spastic diplegia, a form of cerebral palsy. In 1934, when he was 5 years old, his parents admitted him to an asylum in Potsdam, Germany, where clinical records described Hans-Joachim as a “strikingly friendly and cheerful” child. But his condition did not improve. He spent a few years at a clinic in Brandenburg-Görden, Germany, and then, on an early spring day in 1941, he was “transfered to another asylum at the instigation of the commissar for defense of the Reich”—code words meaning that Hans-Joachim, then 12, was gassed at a Nazi “euthanasia” center. His brain was sent to a leading neuropathologist.This euthanasia center at Hadamar was toured by Ben Stein in the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed. In the documentary, the tour guide explains that the Nazis justified their atrocities with Darwinism.But what kind of scientists would engage in the ghastly research of studying brains from children and adults they knew had been murdered by the state? Gannon answers with perhaps the most disturbing part of the story:The historians also hope to gain a better understanding of how unethical science was allowed to flourish in Nazi Germany. The scientists involved “were not bizarre and perverse psychopaths,” Roelcke says. “In the postwar period, they were very well integrated in German society. They were very good researchers of international standing. So what are the conditions under which these kinds of biomedical scientists are prepared to initiate or commit atrocities to further their research interests?”Because Hallervorden and many other complicit scientists kept their positions after the war, Roelcke adds, probing MPG’s role during the Nazi era was long taboo, and the reluctance persisted long after the first investigations. Roelcke encountered resistance several years ago, when he attempted to document that Ernst Rüdin, the Nazi-era director of KWG’s Institute for Psychiatry in Munich, and the University of Heidelberg in Germany were involved in research on child euthanasia victims.So here it is 2017 and the ghosts of Nazi medical experimentation are still haunting the world. The MPG continued to use victims’ brains for research “long after the war ended,” Gannon notes. The MPG did not initiate a comprehensive account of its wartime involvement until the late 1990s, and did not formally apologize till 2001. Gannon and Roelcke are gratified that the latest actions to are “an encouraging sign that MPG is ready to fully confront its past.”“This is not only about ‘forgotten’ specimens, but the apparent whitewashing of the [MPG’s] darkest history and the failure to adequately respond to and to commemorate the tragic past.” —Martin Keck, Max Planck Institute of PsychiatryIn America since Roe v Wade, over 58.5 million unborn babies have been killed. Why? Because they were inconvenient. Some had disabilities. Many were girls. In one way or another, they were deemed “unfit” and needed to be euthanized. Instead of gaining “a better understanding of how unethical science is allowed to flourish” in our day, Nature is angry that undercover videos last year showed the secret dealings between abortionists and “researchers” for prime baby body parts – in Nature‘s terminology, “controversial materials.”Read it and weep. It’s not hard to imagine scientists and ethicists of the future looking back in horror at our time, considering it a holocaust far greater than Hitler’s. The only difference is the age of the victims. We must remember the question: “What are the conditions under which these kinds of biomedical scientists are prepared to initiate or commit atrocities to further their research interests?” (Visited 43 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

IMSTYLE Dark Brown Lace Front Wig Long Wave Synthetic Fiber Wigs For Cosplay Princess Natural Hairstyle With Heat Resistant High Density 26 Inch : Fantastic wig for the price

December 18, 2019

first_img After cutting lace a few times to make it fit. . Natural looking n well worth the money. I did have to have a little mess with the wig before i got it the way i wanted it but nothing serious it was just a bit curly for the way i personally wanted it but it looks so natural and i get compliments on my hair all the time. It was also so easy to straighten and style it took really well to heat.I would highly recommend and would buy again. Thick hair and beautiful lace. This wig is stunning, beautiful quality and i was so excited to wear it. Unfortunately it just kept riding back on my head gradually showing my own hairline, i think from the weight of it or me maybe not putting it on properly. I got so bored of constantly adjusting it that after a couple of hours i took it off. The wig itself is beautiful it just didn’t stay on my head properly. Incredibly natural look and feel to hair, very full lux wig. I purchased the wig on sunday and it came on wednesdays. I will definitely, definetly be buying again from this supplier. Very soft lace very pretty and perfect for the money. I found the peak at the front looked unnatural but purely the shape on my face so i trimmed it off and then thinned the front slightly. Anyone buying this won’t be disappointed. Bought this for my entertainment company to use for belle , it’s amazing it’s not overly shiny , fits my very large head perfectly and is the lightest feeling wig i’ve ever owned , it’s also very very thick and has a variety of layers making it perfect to use my curling wand to make belles ringlets. I’m very fair and the lace is too dark for me but it’s not overly noticeable. The lace itself is very fine and natural looking. This wig is very long but is still manageable to wear down. I would highly recommend this wig , it matches my own natural hair pretty well and you could get away with wearing it daily if you want to as it doesn’t look wiggy. Love this wig looks natural , loads of hair and looks so natural. Definitely thumbs up from me. Wonderfull looking wig that holds it’s curls very well. Quite shiny and fake looking, and so long and full of hair (so heavy). Wasn’t impressed and had to send it back. It’s a shame because it has so much potential, i wish it was what i was expecting. I’m normally really sceptical when ordering wigs becuase i feel like the parting can be a huge giveaway. But with this wig, the parting is honestly so natural looking, even up close. It does shine as a synthetic would so i’d recommend using dry shampoo to reduce it. I would say 2-3 months wear is enough. Wonderful wig pretty natural wanting if styled the right way, does not have that terrible shine that other wigs have.Recieved this wig last night and i am pretty satisfied with it so considerably. I approach to use it for everyday applications as effectively as cosplay/costuming. (i have in excess of 60 wigs in my collection by now)the hair is thick enough and doesn’t search too shiny– (any further shine can be eradicated with a bit of talc powder). Extremely cozy, and straightforward to detangle. It has a slight widow’s peak in the centre, which i delight in, but it could easily be plucked absent if you didn’t like it. The curls are wonderful, but i ran a brush through them to make them a tiny looser to glimpse far more natural. Over-all extremely amazed at the high-quality of this wig for the price.Wonderful wig masses of hair somewhat much less natural as come to feel n shine but for the price tag it’s great will look beautiful as high ponytail you just can’t type it as already curly design but pleased soon after i pluck hair line and so on thankyou.SummaryReviewer Nathalie DuboisReview Date2019-02-03 01:50:04Reviewed Item IMSTYLE Dark Brown Lace Front Wig Long Wave Synthetic Fiber Wigs For Cosplay Princess Natural Hairstyle With Heat Resistant High Density 26 Inch for WomenRating 5.0 / 5  stars, based on  21  reviews This is the first wig i’ve tried. It was very easy to work out how to put it on, the cap that comes with it is very comfortable, it was shiny due to it being synthetic which i expected the colour is beautiful and the waves through it are lovely and natural i have trimmed the excess lace/net and it’s really nice. To take off a little shime i ran some talc through my hands and then the wig. I found the tape quite hard to work with but just need to practice i think. There are no instructions for how to put on, but they do state how to cage for them. But a good customer welcome card and very nice packaging. At first i was unsure about the hair but after working on it for some time, i am now satisfied with it. The lace is quite small but soft & workable. The hair texture is soft and feels real & had no shine to it. To tackle this issue, i decided to cut some inches off which made a huge difference and has yet to tangled. And to be honest it looks better short than long. The last thing to point out is the hair did have a funny smell to it but having used some moisturising conditioner the smell disappeared and the hair look much healthier. It’s looks and feels like real hair and the wig itself sits flush to your head and doesn’t move. It is so full and think and the length is amazing. I even got free wig caps and wig tape, and soon as i messaged them about my items they immediately sent me an email informing me where it was.
