The charges were brought against them after they organized training in investigative reporting. Monjib and four of the other defendants – Samad Ayach, Hicham El Mansouri, Rachid Tarek and Maria Moukrim are journalists or regular contributors to Moroccan media outlets such as Lakome2 and Zamane, and all are members of the Moroccan Association of Investigative Journalism (AMJI). The other two defendants are Hicham Khreibchi, better known as Hicham Al-Miraat, who used to run the Digital Rights Association (ADN) and Mohamed Essabeur, who heads the AMJI. If the charges are confirmed, they are facing the possibility of one to five years in prison under article 206 of Morocco’s penal code. As a result of repeated harassment by the authorities, three of the defendants – Mansouri, Ayach and Miraat – have left the country and could be tried in absentia. “We are in Rabat to reiterate our unwavering support for these seven journalists and media freedom defenders, who should not be on trial,” said Paul Coppin, the head of RSF’s legal committee. “The Moroccan authorities must drop the charges against them and stop gagging the media.” Since opening on 19 November 2015, the trial has already been postponed five times, which in itself constitutes a form of psychological torture. Morocco has fallen to 133rd position in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. last_img read more

Yahia, who did not attend the hearing, was acquitted in the original trial.“Algeria’s journalists have for several years been exposed to a permanent threat of imprisonment,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities keeping on suing the news media, creating a climate of intimidation and self-censorship. They have failed to understand that, in cases of defamation, imprisonment is an utterly inadequate response.”Mascara’s director of commerce sued Yahia over an article implicating him in corruption. Initially acquitted by a Mascara court, Yahia was sentenced in absentia on 11 February to a year in prison and a fine of 20,000 dinars (220 euros). As Yahia was not notified that an appeal court was to hear the case, he plans to appeal against his conviction, Le Carrefour d’Algérie editor Abdellah Bouhali told Reporters Without Borders. No date has so far been set for the hearing of Yahia’s appeal.Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile learned that a journalist with the privately-owned daily El Watan in Mascara is being sued by the imam of El Hassanaïne mosque in Mamounia, a town 2 km outside Mascara, over articles published on 12 April 2006 and 19 April 2008. On 15 February, the trial was adjourned until 22 February at the prosecution’s request.

Credit unions lose ‘primary’ status with half of millennials as they age

first_imgAccording to a study by FICO, one in five Millennials aged 18-24 say they use credit unions as their primary financial institution. But this drops to only 10% for older Millennials, those ages 25-34.There are roughly 6,000 credit unions in the US today, collectively holding over $1.3 trillion in assets. In FICO’s survey, they earned high marks for overall trustworthiness, especially around the perception of providing greater transparency on fees.“Millennials ages 18 to 24 years old are noticing the value that credit unions provide as an alternative to large banks,” said Joshua Schnoll senior director at FICO. “In particular, this age group is attracted to low and transparent fee structures and better interest rates.” continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

3 signs you’re the office grump

first_imgWho’s the grump in your office? Who emits negative energy and is always in a bad mood? Can’t think of anyone off-hand? Uh-oh. You may be looking in the wrong direction. Here are 3 signs that you’re the office grump.Your coworkers drive you crazy: We’ve all had that one coworker that drove us nuts. I think it’s pretty normal to be annoyed by someone’s antics at least once in your professional life. But what if your whole office drives you crazy? That’s normal too, right? Not so much. It’s not likely everyone in your office is going out their way to annoy you. Maybe you’re just a curmudgeon.Your mornings don’t seem to end: If you’re not a morning person, waking up is something you dread. When that alarm goes off you probably hit snooze once or twice (or for an hour). A hot shower probably helps, and that first cup of coffee probably does wonders. But what if you’re still grouchy at 10:30? That’s a good sign that you’re a grump.You’re annoyed by something new every day: If you’ve ever watched The Office, then I’m sure you know who Stanley is. He’s the grumpiest of grumps, and something was always getting on his nerves. It’s one thing to be bothered by someone you work with, but if you’re finding new things to be annoyed with on a daily basis, then you’re definitely a grump. 127SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,John Pettit John Pettit is the Managing Editor for CUInsight.com.

New Zealanders wear face masks as Auckland lockdown lifted

first_imgLimits on public gatherings in Auckland remain and the rest of the country remains in alert level 2, which means social distancing norms must be followed.New Zealand announced 9 new coronavirus cases on Monday, five of which were in the community and were traced to the known Auckland cluster.New Zealand has recorded 1,387 total confirmed cases of COVID-19 so far, and 22 deaths.  Schools and businesses reopened in Auckland on Monday after the lifting of a lockdown in New Zealand’s largest city to contain the resurgence of the coronavirus, but face masks were made mandatory on public transport across the country.The Pacific nation of 5 million people had appeared to have succeeded in halting community transmission of COVID-19, but a fresh outbreak in Auckland prompted the government to place the city back in lockdown earlier this month.Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern scaled back the restrictions in Auckland on Sunday, but made masks compulsory on public transport. Topics :center_img Ardern said on Monday that she was confident the new measure would be taken up across New Zealand, adding that “a bit of smiling with the eyes behind the mask” and kindness to Aucklanders in particular, would help get the country through the latest outbreak.”We have a plan that we know will work. We just need everyone’s compliance and help. If everyone sticks to those guidelines and rules, coupled together with all the public health measures that we have, we can make this work,” Ardern, wearing a mask herself, told reporters in Auckland.Students in Auckland returned to school after many weeks of disruptions.”To me it’s so good for them to go back to school. Online work, online school is alright but it’s still not good enough for them. So it’s good to get out of the house,” said one parent.last_img read more

Salah: Best option to replace Messi at Barcelona – McManaman

first_img Barcelona’s allure comes from the fact they win trophies, and Messi is a large reason as to why the Spaniard’s dominated for so long. Currently, Liverpool appears to be a better place in which to win trophies. And it is for this reason that McManaman feels this soon-to-be-without-Messi-Barcelona side is starting to lose its appeal, and that Salah will stay put. “I see his future at Liverpool, to be honest,” wrote McManaman, in his HorseRacing column. “Regarding this whole aura about Real Madrid and Barcelona, I think players are consistently linked with them because they were both considered the best sides in the world back in the day, however, the best sides are now in the Premier League. “Four or five years ago everybody was saying ‘Real Madrid, Real Madrid, Real Madrid’ because they were winning things and they and Barcelona were winning the Champions League every other year. Read Also:Messi unhappy with Barca assistant’s conduct, claim reports “The best teams in Europe now are in England, so I don’t understand the premise of why you need to go to La Liga at the minute. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Salah’s future has been the subject of speculation in recent months, with Real Madrid and Barcelona keeping tabs on the forward. In recent years the two Spanish giants have been able to lure Liverpool’s best players to La Liga with relative ease: Xabi Alonso, Javier Mascherano, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho among the stars who have made the switch. But last year the football world saw a power shift. While Barcelona and Real Madrid failed to impress in the Champions League, two English clubs in the form of Liverpool and Tottenham reached the final. Real Madrid and Barcelona appear to be going through a transitional period, with the old guard compromised of Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos, Luka Modric, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique and, of course, Lionel Messi, reaching the end of their careers. Meanwhile, Los Blancos have been unable to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, something Barcelona will be acutely aware of as Messi continues to age. Someone like Salah could be the marquee signing the Nou Camp club needs to remain at the pinnacle of world football once Messi hangs up his boots. But  McManaman believes the two things – Messi’s career winding down, and Barcelona’s chances of signing Salah – will impact one another.

IRISH-BRED EVO CAMPO TAKES $75,000 POSSIBLY PERFECT STAKES BY 1 ¼ LENGTHS UNDER BEJARANO; TRAINED BY IRISH-BRED GALLAGHER, ‘EVO’ GETS MARATHON 1 ½ MILES ON TURF IN 2:27.43

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (June 12, 2016)–With an eye-catching turn of foot, Irish-bred Evo Campo shot by pace setter Chocolatier leaving the quarter pole and steamed to an impressive 1 ¼ length win in Sunday’s $75,000 Possibly Perfect Stakes at Santa Anita. Ridden by Rafael Bejarano and conditioned by Irish-bred Paddy Gallagher, Evo Campo negotiated the marathon distance of a mile and one half on turf in 2:27.43.A one half-length allowance winner over the course at 1 1/8 miles on May 5, Evo Campo was trying the mile and one half distance for the first time, but employed similar tactics, as she attended the pace while second into the far turn.“I tried to plan it that way,” said Bejarano, himself a Peruvian native. “I knew Chocolatier was going to be the speed and maybe Sharla Rae would go too. I wanted to make sure we broke well and found a good position. I could tell Tyler (Baze) was trying to get Chocolatier to relax on the lead, so I just decided to stay right behind them. I waited as long as I could and then in the stretch, I just let her go.”Off at 3-1 in a field of seven fillies and mares, three and up, Evo Campo, who is owned by Ronald Day and Mary DiPietro, paid $8.60, $4.80 and $3.20. A 4-year-old filly, Evo Campo is now four for seven over the Santa Anita turf and she improved her overall mark to 11-5-1-2. With the winner’s share of $45,840, she increased her earnings to $170,121.“This is such a good win,” said Gallagher. “It’s so nice because the owner, he just recently became sick, a bone cancer of some kind and he’s just started to battle it. This is really good for him.”When asked about what’s next for his now stakes winning filly? “It’s nice to do what you’ve done. It’s always going to be tough for her, but now we just hope we find something that suits her down at Del Mar.”Hiking, off at 9-1 for trainer Simon Callaghan ran late under hot turf rider Flavien Prat to get second over favored Sharla Rae by 1 ¼ lengths and paid $8.20 and $4.60.Off at 2-1 for trainer Doug O’Neill, Sharla Rae sat just off the pace, taking the shortest trip the whole way around on the rail under Santiago Gonzalez, but couldn’t overtake Evo Campo and finished third in front of Energia Fribby and Drayden Van Dyke by 1 ½ lengths. Sharla Rae paid $3.00 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.70, 48.51, 1:13.30, 1:38.09 and 2:03.11.There is a Pick Six Carryover into Thursday of $68,569 and the total Pick Six pool is expected to approach $500,000.
