Help by sharing this information November 28, 2018 – Updated on November 29, 2018 Russian foreign minister criticizes RSF’s trustworthy journalism work The three drafting groups currently formulating the standards are comprised solely of participants who are linked to journalism. A group of new technology experts, the Technical Task Force, is charged with proposing concrete methods for implementing the various criteria. Facebook is also participating in the initiative. The stakeholders group consists of all the other participants, including online platforms and advertisers. Sergueï Lavrov à Paris le 27 novembre. Crédit : FRANCOIS GUILLOT / AFP News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov’s criticism of the Journalism Trust Initiative at a time when the defence of trustworthy journalism – meaning journalism that is free, independent and rigorous – is a major challenge for democratic societies and humankind as a whole. RussiaEurope – Central Asia Online freedoms Internet June 2, 2021 Find out more News RussiaEurope – Central Asia Online freedoms Internet News Receive email alerts Читать на русском / Read in RussianLavrov criticized the Journalism Trust Initiative – which RSF launched in April – at the press conference that he gave jointly with French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian during a visit to Paris yesterday. “In general, we follow with alarm a number of initiatives that are – not covertly, but publicly – being implemented in the West, including in Europe, initiatives generated by the well-known organization Reporters Without Borders, whose idea is to develop certain journalism trust indicators, white-lists, and so on,” Lavrov said.Possibly alluding to other initiatives, Lavrov added: “The fact that governments in Europe are beginning to support this leads us to the unpleasant conclusion that we are talking of various kinds of political censorship. We would not like to see attempts to moderate international news content on the basis of unilateral political criteria.”Launched jointly in April by RSF, Agence France-Presse, the European Broadcasting Union and the Global Editors Network, the Journalism Trust Initiative is a designed to be a self-regulatory mechanism that provides positive incentives for all kinds of media, regardless of their status, that practice the best kinds of journalism.The initial aim is to create an agreed set of indicators for measuring transparency of media ownership, editorial independence, implementation of journalistic methods and respect for journalistic ethics. These standards are being formulated in a joint process carried out under the aegis of the European Centre of Standardization (CEN).RSF and its partners are asking online platforms, advertisers and others to provide concrete advantages to media outlets that meet these standards – advantages that include preferential treatment by search engine and distribution algorithms leading to better visibility, reach and advertising sales.“Sergei Lavrov’s completely unfounded criticism of the initiative launched by RSF reflects a form of mistrust of independent and rigorous journalism that respects ethical standards,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“We point out that the Journalism Trust Initiative aims to create a trusted third party mechanism in which neither governments, platforms nor, obviously, RSF and its partners will get to differentiate between media outlets. Our project is founded on ideals of transparency, independence, implementation of verification methods and respect for professional ethics, and it uses transparent and non-discriminatory mechanisms. It makes no sense to talk of political bias.”After the JTI project plan’s unanimous adoption on 23 May, nearly 70 organizations met in Paris on 4-5 October to work on the project content. Participants in the process include radio and TV broadcasters such as Radio Télévision Suisse, RTL Group, the German public broadcaster ARD, Radio Canada, the BBC, France Télévision and TV5 Monde; print media such as Gazeta Wyborzca and Der Tagesspiegel; and such news agencies as AFP, EFE, DPA, and TT News.The participants also include regulatory bodies such as CSA and AGCOM, NGOs that defend press freedom and journalism (Article 19, International Press Institute, Free Press Unlimited and Internews), the Swiss press council, consumer organizations such as ANEC, the Guardian and Thomson foundations and digital experts such as Jeff Jarvis, a professor at the Craig Newmark school of journalism in New York and Scott Yates of the Certified Content Coalition (CableLabs). Russian media outlets have also expressed interest in participating.

February 5, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Help by sharing this information News News Reporters Without Borders says it is pleased that two burglars have been convicted of the murder of French journalist Grégoire de Bourgues exactly one year ago in Kazakhstan but it condemns the Kazakh judicial system’s failure to clarify the still unresolved aspects of the case. One of the burglars was sentenced to 16 years in prison. The other got 17 years. Kazakh reporter accuses police of attacking her News January 15, 2021 Find out more KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia On the first anniversary of French journalist Grégoire de Bourgues’ murder in Kazakhstan, Reporters Without Borders today said it was obviously pleased that two people have been convicted of killing him but it condemned the Kazakh judicial system’s failure to shed full light on the case.“Many questions are still unresolved one year after this young French journalist’s death and the authorities seem to have tried to protect the country’s image abroad rather than render justice to the victim’s family,” the press freedom organisation said. “We hope that the roles of all those who have been implicated in this murder will be established during the appeal hearing and we urge the authorities to keep looking for the third suspect, who is still on the run.”A court in Almaty convicted Almaz Oralbayev and Salavat Bolgonbayev on 30 April of murdering De Bourgues in his Almaty apartment on 2 August 2006. Oralbayev was sentenced to 16 years in prison. Bolgonbayev got 17 years.The hardest evidence presented in court was a pistol belonging to Oralbayev’s brother on which traces of De Bourgues’ blood was found. The journalist’s laptop was also found at the home of a friend of Oralbayev’s in the town of Aktau. Oralbayev said he had wanted to get rid of the laptop because he knew the authorities wanted him for the murder.The two defendants accused the police of subjecting them to psychological and physical pressure. They said they were forced to leave their fingerprints on various objects and were threatened with reprisals against their families if they did not confess to killing De Bourgues because he happened to be at home while they were burgling his apartment.The leading witness was De Bourgues’ interpreter, who was present during the break-in. Her account of the events changed during the trial. After initially saying that one of the three intruders was of Slavic origin, she subsequently said all three were of Asiatic origin. The defence claimed during the trial that she changed her story after talking to he police, who had persuaded her to make sure there were no discrepancies between her version and the police version. She also said she recognised Bolgonbayev’s voice.Aged 24, De Bourgues was murdered after going to Kazakhstan with the intention of staying for three months to help prepare an advertising feature which the Kazakh government had commissioned from SML Strategic Media. The police said he had the misfortune to be killed by three burglars who broke into his apartment and stole between 4,000 and 5,000 euros, a laptop and a mobile phone.Reporters Without Borders visited Almaty from September 20 to 24 to investigate the case. During the visit, the deputy interior ministry undertook to allow the De Bourgues family and their lawyers and representatives to have access to the case file and to attend any trial that took place. The family had meanwhile filed a request in Paris on 8 September for a French judicial investigation, which was assigned to investigating judge Olivier Deparis. After being granted civil party status in this investigation on 20 November, Reporters Without Borders urged Deparis to travel to Kazakhstan as soon as possible. The trial of the two alleged killers began in Almaty on 31 January.

From STAFF REPORTS Published on Friday, March 27, 2015 | 4:12 pm Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Make a comment First Heatwave Expected Next Week 11 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it On Thursday, April 30, at 7:00 p.m., Flintridge Bookstore & Coffeehouse hosts a talk and book signing for author Carol Wawrychuk, longtime resident of La Cañada Flintridge and retired teacher from the city’s Paradise Canyon Elementary School. Her book, Taking Nana Home, is the true account of her search for her grandmother’s grave decades after Nana’s death.In 2004, thirty-five years after she died while a patient in the mental hospital at Las Vegas, New Mexico, Nana came to her granddaughter in a vision. “Take me home, Carol. Take me home”. Little did Carol know, Nana was apparently speaking for over 2,000 souls in need of a final resting place.Ducking under barbed wire fencing to enter the cemetery grounds, Carol combed through sagebrush and knee high weeds in search of clues to Nana’s burial place. Instead of serene surroundings with beautiful headstones, she found cement slabs with dates and names crudely etched by hand, mangled metal markers stamped with patient numbers, and human remains that had eroded to the surface. Carol was standing in a throwaway cemetery. Thus began the two-year journey to find Nana.From confronting the bureaucracy of a state government, to interviews with news media, to doggedly pursuing the hospital administration, Carol’s search pushed her out of the safety net of her comfortable life as a wife, mother and teacher.Taking Nana Home is not only the story of a cemetery clean-up, it is a love story of a granddaughter looking back at her family and especially her Nana, with a new set of lenses, and it is a story of faith. It is in reclaiming her past that Carol finds the destination WAS the journey.Carol has a passion for Spiritual Formation. She facilitates small group spiritual direction, leads silent retreats, and does individual spiritual mentoring. She is currently involved as a group leader in the Vocation & Formation Program at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, California.Carol Wawrychuk has over thirty years of classroom experience, sixteen of which were in the La Cañada Flintridge community. In addition to Taking Nana Home, she has authored Miracles Happened There and Tsunami in the Desert. Carol and her husband Bill have lived in La Cañada Flintridge for thirty-four years.For more information, contact Gail Mishkin at (818) 790-0717.

A jurispudence graduate from Oriel College is suing OXLIP, an Oxford based law college, for £100,000, after she failed to qualify as a solicitor at the end of her course. Miss Abramova, who graduated from Oriel in 2004 with a 2:1, began a legal practitioner’s course at the Oxford Institute of Legal Practice (OXILP), aiming to become a solicitor. Abramova alleges that OXILP had not adequately prepared her for the exams, and that their “clearly negligent” tuition resulted in her failure to qualify as a solicitor, and subsequent failure to pass the New York Bar Exam. “I recently decided not to retake that examination,” Abramova told the Court. She added, “This is because I have found it psychologically difficult to take legal examinations following my experiences on the Course and subsequently, at OXILP”.Abramova’s barrister, Oliver Hyams, told the court that the law college failed Ms Abramova by only providing “tuition in examination techniques” after she had already failed her first set of tests in May 2005.A spokesman for OXILP said, “At all times since 2004, the year Maria began her course, [her work] has consistently been graded ‘very good’ or as is the case now ‘commendable’ – the top grade.”The spokesperson added that of the 357 other students who studied who studied at the Oxford Law School in the same year as Abramova, more than 99% went on to pass the paper over which Abramova is suing. Josephine Lyall, who is currently studying on the LPS course, said, “You’re not examined on anything you’re not actively taught…[the tutors] tell you everything you need to know”. Lyall said her previous studies of Classics, at St Hilda’s College, were “much more demanding”. She described her current legal course as “much more programmed”, and added that it is “a lot easier [than Oxford]– you don’t really need to think about it too much”. Abramova’s decision to sue her Law College after failing to pass her exams has prompted wider concerns that the raise in tuition fees for higher education will usher in a new “consumer culture” among students. The fees in 2005 for the OXILP course were £8,195 for both home and international students. OUSU President David Barclay told Cherwell, “This case is a clear signal of how a consumer culture will affect universities. “As students take an increasingly large financial stake in their studies, expectations of course quality and student experience will undoubtedly go up. “Oxford University needs to invest now in the mechanisms that will take these expectations into account. “We need to give students the opportunity to solve their own problems, otherwise this will not be the last time we see [establishments] in court.”OXILP was established jointly by the University of Oxford and Oxford Brookes in 1993. It became a fully integrated part of Oxford Brookes within the School of Social Sciences and Law in 2008.

× Death of man found in Hudson River under investigationThe body of a 38-year-old Bayonne man was found in the Hudson River near the basin of the Morris Canal in Paulus Hook in the early morning of Sunday, October 1, according to Jersey City spokesperson Jennifer Morrill. The identity of the man has not been released. The cause of death is yet to be determined from an autopsy by the State Medical Examiner. The man was not in the water for long, because additional security was patrolling the waters that day for the President’s Cup at Liberty National Golf Course in Jersey City. Man found guilty of sexual assault of childCarlos Santos, 29, of Bayonne, faces up to ten years in prison after he was convicted by a jury on Sept. 21 of second-degree sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez. Santos was convicted of assaulting a 10-year-old girl while visiting the home of his son’s aunt in Bayonne in June 2014 and was arrested in October 2015. He is currently awaiting trial for alleged sexual assault of two other children, ages 7 and 12, between June and October of 2015. One alleged incident allegedly took place in a park. Petition to rescind residency ordinance falls shortAfter the Bayonne City Council voted to amend the local residency ordinance that requires city employees to live in Bayonne to exempt hires made before October 1, a group of critics of the ordinance began collecting signatures for a petition for referendum. If the group had collected 975 valid signatures, a city-wide referendum vote would be held to determine if the ordinance stays. The group, however, fell 11valid signatures shy of the required number, filing its first petition in September with 721 valid signatures, followed by a supplemental petition ten days later with 278. The Bayonne Community News has covered this topic in past issues, including in a story titled, “If you work for the city, do you have to live here?” published in the April 26 issue.Bergen Point Fall FestivalThe Bergen Point Fall Festival is set for Saturday, October 14, from noon to 6 p.m. on Broadway from 5th Street to Cottage Street.

The dog-costume contest takes place at noon, with registration at 11:30 a.m. Prizes will be awarded for first, second, and third place. Trinity Parish will host a basketball hoop raffle, pumpkin painting, and basket raffles.A history fair will be held at the Bayonne Community Museum by the Bayonne Historical Society from 10 a.m. to around 2 p.m., with an Antiques and Collectibles Appraisal Day.

Acting Secretary Duke stated that she could not guarantee that the information of young immigrants who applied for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program would not be turned over to immigration and customs authorities.So HCCC President Glen Gabert, Ph.D. said the College wants to reassure students protected under DACA.“At Hudson County Community College, we are dedicated to assisting and caring for all of our students. We will continue to counsel and advocate on behalf of our DACA students,” he said.Shortly after the executive order was issued, Hudson County Community College issued the following statement to define how the college is responding to executive orders concerning DACA and undocumented students:Hudson County Community College will provide support on immigration-related concerns, counsel those impacted with resources for educational and living expenses for which they are legally eligible, and vigorously investigate and prosecute anyone who threatens, intimidates or harasses any member of our community, as well as intensify its long-standing advocacy for expanded access to higher education for all our students.Hudson County Community College, Gabert said, will not voluntarily disclose immigration and/or citizenship status to federal authorities absent a court-issued subpoena, ask questions regarding immigration and/or citizenship status except when relevant to the service being provided, and will not voluntarily disclose immigration and/or citizenship status information to federal authorities unless necessary to comply with a federal regulation or to protect a person’s safety.EPA approves ‘Oil Lake’ cleanupA Superfund site in Kearny known as “Oil Lake” is will undergo its most comprehensive cleanup effort to date, with a $24 million plan approved on Tuesday, October 3 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Record reports that the site, which has been closed for four decades, contains tons of contaminated soil from a shuttered petroleum plant. However, the plan neglects to address groundwater contamination, which the EPA said will be addressed by future cleanup programs.NJ minimum wage gets 16-cent bumpNew Jersey’s minimum wage labor force will see a small bump in its wages in 2018.
