Transforming tragedy into a commitment to each otherThe Winter Park Institute at Rollins College (WPI) will host former Congresswoman Gabrielle “Gabby” Giffords and her husband, retired American astronaut, and U.S. Navy Captain Mark Kelly, on stage at the Warden Arena at the Alfond Sports Center April 4 at 7:30 p.m.The lives of Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly became forever changed after the nearly fatal 2011 assassination attempt on her life. In the face of such devastating trauma, the couple has transformed adversity into an unwavering commitment to each other and a message of hope.Giffords was a Congresswoman elected from Arizona’s 8th District. She served from 2007 until her resignation in January of 2012 following an attempted assassination at a supermarket in Tucson in January of 2011. The only female elected official in the history of the United States to become the target of an assassination attempt, Giffords was just the third woman to be elected to Congress from the State of Arizona. She also served in the Arizona House of Representatives and Senate and was the CEO of her family’s business. In March of 2014, Fortune magazine named Giffords one of the “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders.”Giffords was shot at a Tucson supermarket in 2011. Kelly was a U.S. Navy fighter pilot and flew 39 combat missions over Iraq and Kuwait during the first Gulf War. Kelly has spent more than 50 days in orbit and was the commander of Space Shuttle Endeavour in May of 2011 on its final flight. During his last space mission, his wife Gabby Giffords was recovering in a hospital in Houston, Texas. In 2011, Mark was featured on the cover of Esquire magazine and honored as one of the “Americans of the Year.”“We are honored to bring two national heroes, Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly, to the Central Florida community,” said Winter Park Institute Executive Director Gail Sinclair. “They have an inspiring and unforgettable story to share.”For tickets or more information on the event, go here.Launched in 2008, the Winter Park Institute at Rollins College is a center for intellectual engagement through public lectures, readings, symposiums, seminars, master classes, interviews and special-interest sessions. The Institute features discussions between Rollins College, the surrounding community and thought leaders from a broad spectrum of disciplines, including poet laureates and Pulitzer Prize-winning historians.For more information on upcoming speakers, go here.

Solidarity events have been held across the U.S. as well as in Albania, Australia, Belgium, Britain, Canada, China, Ecuador, France, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Morocco, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Poland, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden and Tunisia in response to the mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., on June 12. (weareorlando.org) Here are reports on just a few of those in the U.S.In New York City, LGBTQ people and their allies gathered in front of the Stonewall Inn, site of the rebellion against police brutality in 1969 that heralded the modern LGBTQ liberation movement, on June 12. Many activists there demanded that the Orlando shooting not be used as a pretext for more Islamophobia, and that the U.S. government’s systemic racism and anti-LGBTQ bigotry was to blame for the tragedy.In California, several thousand gathered at the half-staff rainbow flag in San Diego’s Hillcrest community on the evening of June 12 to mourn. One woman’s sign read, “This was an assault on queers, Latinos, immigrants, Americans, the men and women I love, my people, my gente, mi familia.”An estimated 5,000 people — Latinos/as, Blacks, whites and Muslims of every gender expression — came out on the day after the killing horror in Orlando at Philadelphia‘s City Hall. Religious, political, Latino/a queer spokespeople and others began the rally as the large gathering spilled into the street. After officials left, along with the sound system provided by the city, activists brought out their own sound system, allowing more community representatives to speak. The West Philly Catholic High School basketball team showed up to speak and march to mourn the loss of 18-year-old Akyra Murray, a recent graduate and one of the 49 killed in Orlando. The event ended with a march in the streets around City Hall.

News News Receive email alerts Organisation In response to a petition from the Union of Burundian Journalists (UBJ), the Constitutional Court has quashed certain provisions of the media law that was promulgated on 4 June 2013.The court’s ruling, issued on 7 January, invalidated articles providing for huge increases in fines and other penalties that could be imposed on journalists in an arbitrary manner.“While we obviously approve the suppression of these articles, we deplore the fact that other draconian provisions are still in effect, namely, those that force journalists to reveal their sources, restrict their investigative ability and reinforce the punitive powers of the National Communication Council (CNC),” Reporters Without Borders said.The Union of Burundian Journalists has also petitioned the East African Community’s Court of Justice, based in the Tanzanian city of Arusha.———————-04.06.2013 – New law’s promulgation sets Burundi back 20 years“This is a black day for freedom of information in Burundi,” Reporters Without Borders said after President Pierre Nkurunziza today promulgated the media law that parliament passed in April. “The country has gone backwards more than 20 years.”Reporters Without Borders campaigned for months against the law’s adoption by parliament and then against its promulgation by the president.The new law restricts journalists’ ability to do investigative reporting, weakens protection for sources, increases fines and requires all journalists to have a university degree regardless of their work experience. For more information about the new law, click here.More information about media freedom in Burundi:- Press releases- RWB country file——–07.05.2013 – Media law’s threat to freedom of informationReporters Without Borders wrote an open letter to President Pierre Nkurunziza today voicing concern about freedom of information in Burundi and asking him not to promulgate a media law that has been passed by the country’s parliament.The text of the letter follows:Dear President Nkurunziza,In the wake of World Press Freedom Day just three days ago, Reporters Without Borders urges not to promulgate the media law that parliament passed last month.Approved by the national assembly at the start of April and by the senate on 19 April, the proposed law is very controversial and comes at a difficult time for the Burundian media, a time exacerbated by Hassan Ruvakuki’s long detention and several serious physical attacks on journalists.You should not interpret the many objections that have been voiced by the media and international bodies as a sign of hostility towards your government’s actions in general. They just reflect a legitimate concern.By restricting your subjects’ accessibility to journalists and by drastically increasing the jail terms and fines for media offences, the proposed law would considerably limit investigative reporting and would probably increase self-censorship.With two years to go until the next national elections, its promulgation would have disastrous consequences for pluralism, transparency and democracy in general in Burundi.In this grave and decisive period, we therefore count on your goodwill.By preventing this law from taking effect, you will demonstrate your commitment to freedom of information. But if you promulgate it, you will send an extremely negative signal to your fellow citizens, the international community and all of Burundi’s partners.Our organization is convinced that you will display the required vision and allow the media to fully play their proper role, one that is so necessary for the vitality of democracies. I thank you in advance for the attention you give to our request.Sincerely, to go further Christophe DeloireReporters Without Borders secretary-general RSF_en Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention Follow the news on Burundi BurundiAfrica News Reports November 27, 2020 Find out more January 8, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Constitutional court quashes some articles, but not enough Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists Help by sharing this information October 21, 2020 Find out more The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa BurundiAfrica June 5, 2020 Find out more

The University has stated that they will help the unemployed former staff, on a purely “humanitarian basis”, and will make the arrangements of their employment in the nearby areas as per the applicable, reasonable, and appropriate terms and conditions. About 55 safai karmcharis, working with White Fox or Golden Companies, were rendered unemployed after the University’s contract with the Company allegedly expired. The University entered into a new contract with Rajendra Management Group (RMG), which set off a prolonged student protest, seeking that the former staff be re-instated. While some of the workers were later employed by the new Contractor- RMG, on University’s persuasion, the University has now assured that it will make requisite arrangements for the remaining unemployed workers, on moral grounds. A statement issued by the University reads as follows: “It has been brought to our notice that some of the Housekeeping staff members who were earlier working with White Fox or Golden Companies hired by the University are facing employment crisis as these Companies seem to have failed to take enough care of these workers after the completion of their Contract in the University. Notably, the University has already placed almost half of the old housekeeping staff with the present contractor in the University and a few of them are reportedly working at various other places. For the remaining staff, the University has taken a decision to help on a purely humanitarian basis. It is hereby notified that University, in consultation with certain service providers including the present one, will make the arrangements of their employment in the nearby areas as per the applicable, reasonable, and appropriate terms and conditions. Purely, informal and non-binding in nature, this measure shall immediately help those who are in need of employment. It will be the most effective way to redress the problems that they are reportedly facing.” Next Story

Sullivan County Sheriff’s OfficeBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn.) — Megan Boswell has been charged with murder in the death of her 15-month-old daughter, Evelyn, who was reported missing in February and found dead more than two weeks later.After a five-month investigation into Evelyn’s death, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation and Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday alleged Boswell, 19, killed her child and disposed of her body. A grand jury returned several indictments against the teen mom, including two counts of murder, a count of child abuse and 16 other charges, TBI said.Boswell has been in jail since February, for allegedly lying to investigators during the investigation into Evelyn’s disappearance, and Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said she also spread misinformation to the public.“As a result of false information given by the defendant along with misinformation circulated in the community, there has been a lot of confusion in the case,” he said during a news conference. “I want to be clear when I say that after an extensive and thorough investigation, other individuals were eliminated as suspects and Megan Boswell became the sole suspect in this case.”Evelyn was last seen with her mother in December, but she was only reported missing by a family member on Feb. 18, the TBI said. An Amber Alert was issued on Feb. 19 and investigators searched extensively for the child.Over 16 days, authorities received and followed up on more than 1,000 tips, TBI said. During the investigation, Evelyn’s grandmother, Angela Boswell, and another man, William McCloud, were arrested and charged with possession of stolen property when they were found on Feb. 20 with a car connected to the Amber Alert.Megan Boswell was arrested five days later for allegedly lying to investigators.On March 6, officials searched the Blountville, Tennessee, property owned by Megan Boswell and found Evelyn’s remains.“She didn’t deserve this, no child does,” Cassidy said.Megan Boswell is due back in court on Aug. 28 and her bond has been set at $1 million, the TBI said. Her attorney, Brad Sproles, told ABC News he couldn’t comment on the charges, because as of Wednesday evening he had not spoken to his client.“Our jail is dealing with COVID issues and pretty much locked down and I haven’t been able to talk to her,” Sproles told ABC News. “We’re trying to get something set up soon.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Consumer champion organisation Which? has launched a scathing report on sales agents that will make painful and probably infuriating reading for many.Its research found that of the 370,000 property sales it looked at between October 2105 and September 2016, one in five had been heavily reduced in price between asking and final agreed price, and that the optimistically-valued properties sold more slowly and for less.More controversially, Which? says online-only and hybrid agents sold more homes that hadn’t been reduced in price compared to traditional agents.Also, Which? says its data suggests overvalued properties take 64 days longer to sell than the rest, and that properties that start out over-priced don’t generally later achieve a higher one than an ‘uninflated’ one.The best-performing agents across the UK for selling above the asking price are also revealed, as are those Which? says are the ‘worst’.In London these include Fine & Country, James Pendleton, EasyProperty, Camerons Stiff & Co, Watson Bull & Porter, Faron Sutaria, Chestertons and Marsh & Parsons.Outside London it includes Redferns in the SW, Nick Tart in the West Midlands, Boxall Brown & Jones in the East Midlands, Aldreds in the East of England, Whitegates in Yorkshire, Colin Lilley in the NE, Proctors in the NW and Property Plus Wales.The agents were given the chance to respond to the data and their answers are within the report including Chestertons and Marsh & Parsons, both of which said the EU Referendum and stamp duty changes had affected their local markets.The best – agents who sold the fewest properties under the asking price and the most over it – included House & Co in the SW, Next Place Property Agents in the West Midlands, Quarters Estate Agents in the East of England, Spencers in Yorkshire, Coast and Castle in the NE, Watersons in the NW and Mr Homes in Wales.Which? also looked at traditional agents’ asking price performance versus online-only agents and found that properties sold through the latter sold 38 days quicker.“We welcome today’s report from Which?, which highlights the need for more transparency in estate agency,” says Michael Bruce, CEO of Purplebricks (pictured, left)HOT TOPIC This story is being discussed in the forum nowThe Negotiator says:Is it really over-pricing, or just the effect of different opinions on potential value?Have your say What do you think of the Which? report?Purplebricks Which?
