Six radio station staff freed on completing sentences

first_img May 5, 2021 Find out more News MaliAfrica Organisation June 8, 2021 Find out more Radio Kayira’s six staff members were released yesterday on completing their one-month prison sentences.—————————29.08.06 – Six radio station staff sentenced to one month in prison with no parole for broadcasting without a licenceReporters Without Borders has condemned the disproportionate verdict carried out against six Radio Kayira staff in Niono (Centre), who were arrested on 23 and 24 August 2006, after police shut down the station because it was operating without a licence.”The six Radio Kayira staff have already spent one week in prison over an administrative dispute that is politically tainted. Even if the station was contravening the law, this situation has already gone too far by detaining these media professionals in jail. The courts must rule for their provisional release before sealing a regrettable and unusual episode in Mali,” declared Reporters Without Borders.Radio Kayira staff, including Amadou Nanco Marikon, managing director in Koutiala, southern Mali, Koutiala station hosts Mohamed Diakité and Magan Sidy, and station coordinator Boubacar Diarra, were arrested on 23 August when the police, under the order of the prefecture, closed the Kayira radio network antenna in Niono, which had been broadcasting without a licence.Radio Kayira 1 hosts from Bamako, Gaoussou Goita and Yaya Coulibaly, were arrested on 24 August.Placed in detention and charged with “opposition to the authority of the State”, they were sentenced on 29 August to one month in prison with no parole and a fine of 50,000 CFA Francs (approx. 76 euros). The applications made by the president of the Union of Free Radio and Television of Mali (Union des radios et télévisions libres du Mali, URTEL), Yaya Sangaré, to permit the Radio Kayira staff to go free, were unsuccessful. Their lawyer intends to appeal the verdict.The Radio Kayira network belongs to African Solidarity for Democracy and Independence (Solidarité africaine pour la démocratie et l’indépendance, SADI), a political party represented in government. A licence application for the Niono antenna had been made in September 2005. On 24 April, the radio station began to broadcast without having received a response from the authorities. This resulted in an “arm wrestle” with the prefecture, which began with the 17 May closure of the station. Given that he did not receive a response regarding the licence application, the director of the Kayira communication network, Oumar Mariko, who is also secretary general of SADI, believed he could begin broadcasting again. According to him, by law, the authorities should have taken no more than 15 days to respond to the application.

Hurricane Michael’s death toll rises to 17: ‘We were just surprised by the sheer damage’

first_imgABC News(PANAMA CITY, Fla.) — Hurricane Michael’s death toll has climbed to 17 as search-and-rescue crews continue to sift through the wreckage of once-bustling oceanside cities, like Mexico Beach and Panama City Beach, four days after the storm came ashore.Mexico Beach was largely decimated when Michael made landfall there Wednesday as a Category 4 storm with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph.“There are individuals who are deceased. We do not have a count, but we are working to identify them,” Miami Fire Chief Joseph Zahralban, leader of a search-and-rescue team in Mexico Beach, told The Associated Press.One body was found in the wreckage of a home in the town on Friday, but teams planned to be back out to comb through the debris on Saturday.Of the 17 killed in the storm, eight were located in Florida. Four people died in Gadsden County and three died in Jackson County, in addition to one recovered so far in Mexico Beach, located in Bay County. Jackson County Emergency Management Agency Director Rodney Andreasen said one of the fatalities in Jackson County occurred when a man was struck by a tree in Alford.FEMA Administrator Brock Long warned on Friday that the death toll will likely climb.“I hope we don’t see that climb dramatically, but … we still haven’t gotten into some of the hardest-hit areas,” he said.Ray Jadallah, from the Miami-Dade County Florida Task Force 1, has spent the last two days — 20 hours a day — digging through debris in Mexico Beach. He said they are ignoring intact structures and painstakingly going door to door at collapsed buildings, first making noise to alert anyone who could be inside that they are not looters, and then sending in a cadaver dog to search for any bodies.So far, they have located just one dead body, a relative relief for Jadallah, who did the same work following Hurricane Katrina when they found “numerous victims.” The destruction in Bay County has largely been from wind damage, as opposed to the flooding during Katrina.“We were just surprised by the sheer damage,” Jadallah said of arriving in Mexico Beach after Hurricane Michael. “Literally overnight it went from a Category 1 or 2 to a Category 4, almost borderline 5. This type of destruction we haven’t seen since I was a kid and that was Hurricane Andrew. This is pretty extensive, the damage. It’s going to take some time for them to get back on their feet.”About 285 people defied mandatory evacuation orders in Mexico Beach. Police made two sweeps of the town Wednesday morning and recorded names of everyone who planned to stay, though officials said it is impossible to know who might have left during or immediately after the storm.“We don’t have a building — from my understanding the water surge moved it off its foundation,” Mexico Beach Police Chief Anthony Kelly told ABC News Friday. “The officers, I finally made accountability of them all today, two days after the fact. … They’re not just my officers, the people that I work with, they’re my family.”Emily Mitchell returned on Saturday afternoon to what was left of the house her family owned in the city. The roof was ripped off, walls were blown in and she called it a “total loss.” They expect to just bulldoze the lot. They are unsure what their next step will be because her parents had decided they couldn’t afford to pay for hurricane insurance.“We didn’t want to tell anybody about Mexico Beach because it was such a sweet town, we were scared that people would know about it and keep coming,” she said.“It’s just totally wiped out.”Neighboring Panama City was hit just as hard as Mexico Beach. Many survivors told of hunkering down in their homes as they were torn apart by the 150 mph winds.“I decided to stay because my family decided to evacuate, but the pets had to stay here,” Panama City resident John Pandullo said. “They didn’t have a place to go. So I wanted to protect them or be there for them in case something like this happened — and it did.”Pandullo rode out the storm in a closet with his dog, Rosie, as the house literally collapsed around him. The roof caved in and the living room and garage of his parents’ home no longer exist.“It was just so crazy and it’s just so bad,” he said. “The dog was right here and she would not leave my side and she would not move. She was shaking extremely bad. And the winds were coming in and the rain was all pouring down on us and basically I waited for over an hour.“I managed to make a phone call actually at the peak of the storm, and I was actually able to talk with my parents at the time,” Pandullo continued. “And my mom was praying with Jesus on the phone about it the whole time you know — ‘Please let him be alive.’”Kenny Day has lived in Panama City for two decades and said riding out Michael was “the most scared I’ve ever been in my life.”“The whole house shook; it felt like the whole house was going to come apart at some point,” Day said. “Luckily it didn’t. I’m amazed it didn’t.”Day’s home suffered minor damage, and he’s been staying at a motel in Pensacola, but he immediately headed out to buy supplies and has traveled back and forth to Panama City to help others whose homes were damaged worse than his.“How does it feel to have that help? We need it. We’re gonna need it bad,” he said. “Man, it’s gonna be rough for a while in Panama City.”Five people, including a firefighter, died in Virginia as flooding caused massive damage in an area already hard hit by Hurricane Florence last month. Three people died in North Carolina, all due to falling trees, and a young girl was killed in Georgia when debris was blown through the roof of her grandparents’ home.There were still 1.3 million customers without power across Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama and Virginia as of 5 a.m. Saturday.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Family of man killed in Hard Rock collapse file wrongful death lawsuit against developers

first_imgiStock(NEW ORLEANS) — The family of one of the men who died when the Hard Rock hotel collapsed two weeks ago in downtown New Orleans has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the building’s developers.The hotel was under construction on Oct. 12, when the top floors came tumbling down, killing three construction workers and injuring dozens of others. The cause of the collapse is currently under investigation.Kamren Schexnayder and Angela Magrette Ortega, the daughter and twin sister of one of the victims, Anthony Magrette, said in their lawsuit that the developers failed to provide a safe working environment for the workers.Schexnayder and Ortega said Magrette, 49, was “alive at the time the Hard Rock began to collapse” and the companies are responsible for “his conscious physical pain and suffering and mental anguish immediately preceding his death.”They are also suing for their own mental suffering.Both women arrived at the scene of the collapse before rescue workers could find Magrette and witnessed his body removed from the rubble, according to the lawsuit.The two filed the suit on Tuesday in Orleans Parish Civil District Court against multiple companies: 1031 Canal, Kailas Development, Citadel Builders, Moses Engineers, Harry Baker Smith Architects, and Heaslip Engineering.“Our highest priority is the care and concern for the families involved,” 1031 Canal said in a statement. “While there are many questions that are unanswerable at this juncture, our prayers and sympathies are with the good men and women who have been affected. We are hopeful that the thoughts and prayers throughout the community will help us as we continue to work with local authorities and the General Contractor to identify the causes of the incident.”A statement on Citadel Builder’s website read, in part, “safety has always been and shall remain a priority for our employees and subcontractors.”Harry Baker Smith Architects declined to comment, and the remaining companies did not respond to requests for comment from ABC News.The majority of the companies named in Tuesday’s lawsuit are facing separate litigation from victims who were injured in the collapse and have alleged negligence.The bodies of the two other victims who died, 63-year-old Jose Ponce Arreola and 36-year-old Quinnyon Wimberly, have not been removed from the building.Quinnyon Wimberly II, the son of the elder Wimberly, filed a wrongful-death lawsuit on Monday, according to the New Orleans Advocate.NOLA Ready, the city’s emergency preparedness agency, said that the recovery efforts of the two victims is “top priority” and will begin as “as soon as it is safe to do so.”Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s office did not immediately respond to ABC News as to when that would be.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Experimental warming of bryophytes increases the population density of the nematode Plectus belgicae in maritime Antarctica

first_imgDespite nematodes routinely being the most frequent soil- and bryophyte-associated animals in maritime Antarctica, there is a lack of clarity about the influence of warming on their populations in the region. Here, we report the results of a field experiment on Adelaide Island that tested the effects of warming with open-top chambers (OTCs) for 37 months on nematodes associated with the bryophytes Cephaloziella varians and Sanionia uncinata. Over the experiment’s duration, OTCs increased the population density of the nematode Plectus belgicae in mats of both bryophytes by six-fold, with four- to seven-fold increases in the abundances of male, female and juvenile P. belgicae in warmed mats, and with the largest effects on the abundances of juveniles. Despite C. varians, which is black in colour, warming to a greater extent than S. uncinata during summer, no interactive effects of OTCs and bryophyte species were recorded on the population density of P. belgicae. Our results corroborate a previous study showing that warming increases Plectus population densities in maritime Antarctic soils, with implications for the region’s terrestrial food webs.last_img read more

USA: BRP Gregorio del Pilar Gets Aloha Welcome

first_imgMore than a hundred Filipino-Americans and other well-wishers welcomed the Philippine Navy’s newest ship, BRP Gregorio del Pilar (PF-15), as it arrived at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH), July 27 for a brief port visit.Commanded by Capt. Alberto A. Cruz, Gregorio del Pilar left Alameda, Calif. on July 18 to make its maiden voyage to the Republic of the Philippines where it will join the Philippine Fleet. Gregorio del Pilar is a former U.S. Coast Guard cutter, USCGC Hamilton (WHEC 715). As a multi-mission surface combatant ship, it becomes the first gas-turbine jet engine-powered vessel in the Philippine Navy Fleet.“This is very historic moment,” said Col. Restituto Padilla, the Filipino military liaison assigned at U.S. Pacific Command. “That’s why we have the Filipino community here in force. This is the first time a Philippine Navy ship pulls into historic Pearl Harbor. Coupled with that, this is the first Philippine Navy ship that is gas-turbine. In these two instances, they are milestones. I hope this will be followed through by many more ship visits to historic Pearl Harbor in the months and years to come.”Navy Region Hawaii Command Master Chief Marc Sibal rallied the Filipino-American community in Hawaii to the JBPHH piers to greet the ship. Members of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Marines and Coast Guard also attended the event.“I feel proud, very proud of it,” said Sibal. “Even if I’m serving in the U.S. Navy, I’m still Filipino by culture and by heart. It’s nice to see the Philippine Navy modernize their fleet. We are very uplifted, and I think everybody is very honored to have this ship pull into Pearl Harbor, to a historic place like Pearl Harbor.”Sibal, who previously served as Seventh Fleet Command Master Chief, said that the relationship between the U.S. and the Republic of the Philippines remains strong and that the ship is an example of the well-built relationship between the two countries.Prior to taking command of the ship, 74 members of the Philippine Navy underwent two months of intensive hands-on training aboard USCGC Boutwell (WHEC 719), the sister ship of the Hamilton. While aboard Boutwell, the crew traveled to Colombia, Ecuador and El Salvador, participating in multiple missions including the interdiction of drug smugglers.“Our partnership with the United States has been here for so many years,” said Padilla. “It’s getting stronger through the years. I hope this will mark a new era, as we embrace new challenges. As new security environments emerge, our partnership with the United States would get even stronger and become more relevant in the years to come.”Deputy Consul General Paul Cortes, of the Philippine Consulate in Honolulu; Capt. Jeffrey James, commander of JBPHH; and Capt. William Johnson, commanding officer of USS Lake Erie (CG 70), host ship during the port visit, were also at the pier to welcome the ship.During the three-day port visit, Gregorio del Pilar will take on supplies and fuel, hold a reception hosted by the Philippine Consulate General in Honolulu and the Philippine Celebrations Coordinating Committee of Hawaii (PCCCH), and visit the USS Arizona Memorial. A social media “tweetup” is being planned during the ship’s visit. A Catholic Mass will be conducted prior to their departure.Gregorio del Pilar and USS Reuben James (FFG 57) are scheduled to conduct a Passing Exercise (PASSEX) off the coast of Hawaii next week. PASSEX is an exercise designed to increase interoperability between the two navies, while enhancing the strong cooperative relationship.[mappress]Source: navy, July 29, 2011; View post tag: gets View post tag: Pilar USA: BRP Gregorio del Pilar Gets Aloha Welcome July 29, 2011 View post tag: Aloha View post tag: usa Share this article View post tag: Gregoriocenter_img Back to overview,Home naval-today USA: BRP Gregorio del Pilar Gets Aloha Welcome Training & Education View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: BRP View post tag: Welcomelast_img read more
