first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Kenyan government to stop obstructing media independence after eight columnists working for the country’s biggest media group resigned en masse yesterday in protest against government and management interference in their journalistic freedom. “We refuse to be silenced,” the eight columnists proclaimed at the head of a joint statement explaining their decision to stop writing for the Nation Media Group (NMG). “I resign to protest the growing infringement on media freedom,” one of the columnists, university academic Nic Cheeseman, wrote in a tweet.Denying the charges, NMG insisted in a statement that, “we have honoured our obligation to respect their views and did not tamper with their positions except to correct basic errors.”The collective resignations followed a series of incidents of which the latest was NMG’s refusal to renew the contract of the Linus Kaikai, the general manager of the NMG-owned TV channel NTV in January. Kaikai had denounced collusion between the government and the owners of media outlets that failed to cover the mock swearing-in of opposition leader Raila Odinga, who claims to have won the 2017 presidential election. Four TV channels that did cover the event, including NTV, were closed by the authorities.“These mass resignations should give pause to the Kenyan authorities and NMG’s management,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “All these columnists chose to leave of their own free will in protest against the frequent political pressure. The independence of NMG’s 17 media outlets is at stake.”Several columnists already sounded the alarm two years ago in a letter to NMG’s management accusing it of bowing to political pressure when it fired Denis Galava, a well-known editorialist and editor at the NMG-owned Daily Nation newspaper, after he denounced President Kenyatta’s mishandling of the economy in an editorial.A few weeks later, NMG refused to renew the contract of Gado, a cartoonist who had worked for the group for 20 years but had been the subject of a complaint from Kenyatta, often the target of Gado’s cartoons.Media independence is often curtailed in Kenya, especially during elections. In January, the Kenya Editors’ Guild said it was “gravely alarmed over a developing trend by the government to gag or threaten the media over coverage of the current political events in the country.”Kenya is ranked 95th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. to go further KenyaAfrica Media independence Freedom of expression KenyaAfrica Media independence Freedom of expression News April 6, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Kenya Help by sharing this information Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africacenter_img Reports Kenyan media group trolled by pro-ruling party activists © AFP Simon Maina Organisation News Receive email alerts November 27, 2020 Find out more June 13, 2019 Find out more News March 28, 2018 – Updated on March 29, 2018 Mass resignations from Kenya’s biggest media grouplast_img read more

first_imgARLA Propertymark has written a stark letter to the Home Office warning that its Right to Rent scheme could face collapse once the Covid pandemic ends.The problem concerns the ‘adjusted checks’ system for Right to Rent implemented to help prevent the transmission of Covid, which enables agents to complete status checks without having to meet tenants in person.This stop-gap is now eight months old and Propertymark says thousands tenancies have been agreed using this system – but the regulations say that once Covid is over, these tenancies will have to be re-checked for Right to Rent within eight weeks of the pandemic ending.“Given the volume of checks that will now have built up, the majority of letting agents and landlords will undoubtedly fail to comply with the requirement to deliver retrospective checks,” the letter says.Checked twiceAgents have told Propertymark that tenants are unlikely to appreciate being checked twice and are unlikely to help a second time around.Also, the need to check twice will cause a huge digital compliance storage problem for landlords and agents who will need to capture duplicate paperwork.This will be take place at the same time as the huge expansion of the Right to Rent scheme that, from next month onwards, will include EU citizens who have not yet applied for Settled Status.“It is essential that the Home Office moves to accept adjusted Right to Rent checks on tenancies that started during the period under which the public health crisis requires minimal face to face dealings,” says Timothy Douglas, Policy & Campaigns Manager at Propertymark (left).“I ask that you consider the benefits to tenants, landlords and letting agents of removing the need for retrospective, duplicate checks in order to ensure that landlords and letting agents can meet their legal requirements and support moves to the new points based immigration system through the first half of 2021.”Read more about Right to Rent.Timothy Douglas Right to Rent ARLA Propertymark November 17, 2020Nigel Lewis2 commentsJulian Blackmore, BNE BNE 17th November 2020 at 4:02 pmWe should change our titles to just Agent as we are border agent, immigration agent, benefit agent, citizens advice agent, marriage guidance and very occasionally estate agent.Log in to ReplyPossession Friend, Possession Friend Possession Friend 17th November 2020 at 2:37 pmAnother Shambles of the Govt’s making !Log in to ReplyWhat’s your opinion?

first_imgEarlier this week Under Sheriff Bob Nolan and Sheriff Gary Schaffer were in Ocean City to talk with supporters and knock on doors.  Pictured above is a group of prominent city officials who support him.  Here is what they had to say:Michael Allegretto: I’m supporting Bob Nolan because I know he has the most experience and best qualifications to be our county’s sheriff.  He has a proven track record in all areas needed to be an effective Sheriff.  He will work hard and spent our tax dollars efficiently.Michael DeVlieger: Put simply, this one is a no brainer. Bob’s career has been a progression of roles that have given him intimate knowledge of all four departments under the sheriff’s command. He has worked his way from the ground up. 33 years of service to this department and he has been the Under Sheriff for the last 7 years. Each year the sheriff’s department has been under budget while delivering excellent results. That tells me that the ship is headed in the right direction.Antwan McClellan: I am delighted to endorse Undersheriff Bob Nolan for Sheriff of Cape May County.  Undersheriff Nolan brings a deep commitment to the County of Cape May, a sense of passion, and unbounded energy to everything he does within the County. I have no doubt he will make a terrific, conscientious representative for our County, and work hard for the betterment of our communities.  Please join us in supporting Undersheriff Nolan for Sheriff.Karen Bergman: In addition to Bob Nolan’s extensive experience in the Sheriff’s office. He was previously the elected Deputy Mayor in Lower Township.  I mention this because that role required him to understand budgets.  The Sheriff’s department under Gary Schaffer has been operating under budget. It is critical to the tax payers that continues.Keith Hartzell: Gary Schaffer did a great job as our Sheriff, and Bob Nolan was with him every step of way. Our Sheriffs department will continue the modernization of all aspects of their department with the experienced leadership of Bob Nolan. Everyone that I’ve spoken with in the Sheriff’s department has the up most respect for Bob’s professionalism and his dedication.  He will make a great Sheriff.Cape May County Sheriff Gary Schaffer:   Bob Nolan has been my Undersheriff for the last 7 years. He has oversight and supervises ever part of the Sheriff’s Office. Once Bob is elected, he will be the first Cape May County Sheriff who worked his way up through the ranks.Pete Madden:  The Sheriff’s department has been operating like a well oiled machine. Earlier this year, the State Association of Chief’s of Police commended them for being considered in the top 8% of Law Enforcement Agencies in NJ.  That tells me a lot about the team they have built.  I support Bob Nolan for Cape May County Sheriff and suggest that the other 7% get ready to move over.last_img read more

first_imgCrispy Corners/BorekiBASIC DOUGH RECIPEkg %Egg 0.24 10.0Salt 0.01 0.4Yoghurt (full fat) 0.8 33.0Flour (medium strength) 1.0 42.0Butter (soft) 0.36 15.0Total 2.41 100.0 Boreki are the best-selling savouries of the near and Middle East and are immensely popular with both locals and visitors.The concept is versatile, easy and inexpensive and they eat very well – cold, warm or hot. The pastry uses yoghurt, olive oil, eggs, and butter and is very tasty. It is rolled very thinly, and filled with small quantities of strongly flavoured fillings. These are then fried or baked and are great to eat.From the basic idea I have developed what I believe to be a snack of tremendous potential. While with Unilever, Tesco asked if I could develop an ambient stable snack, based on ravioli. I never achieved the eating quality, but I had not considered frying them. With fillings that are ambient-stable, Boreki variants could be a competitor in the massive crisp market. Knowledge of water movement and food technology is needed, but it can be done. METHOD1. Whisk the egg, salt and yoghurt together.2. Beat in the flour to form a smooth soft dough – the flour you use will determine the exact quantity. Aim for a silky texture. Allow this to stand 15 minutes or so.3. Continue now as you would for English puff pastry; the butter should be spread evenly over two-thirds of the dough. Refrigerate for 60 minutes or more then give three or four half-turns. You will need to keep it refrigerated as it is soft, but do not be afraid of using loads of flour in rolling it out. I worked with Georges Blanc at Vonnas 20 years ago and he made the most wonderful full puff pastry in the same way, but with the amount of flour used in processing, probably reduced to little more than three-quarters.4. Roll the dough as thinly as you can (a maximum of 2mm) and cut into 7cm squares.5. Place the filling in the middle of a diagonal half, and fold to form a triangle, then seal the edges. Refrigerate or freeze until required.6. Fry in good oil about 3cm deep, 180ºC for 5 or 6 minutes. Or they can be brushed with oil and baked in a hot oven – not as good but still delicious. The advantage of the fried ones is that they re-heat remarkably well in the microwave.Fillings suggestions?Grated cheese with olive oil and dry mint?Grated cheese with olive oil, onion and dill?Raw ground beef or lamb with onion, salt and cinnamon?Lumpy mashed potato with garlic, cheese and butter?Keema curry, uncooked?Minced chicken with a chopped onion, fresh coriander (or Porter foods version in oil), salt and white peppercenter_img Snack size1.5mm-thick pastry, 7cm square: 16gFilling: 7gTotal: 23glast_img read more

first_imgAnna Mason Saint Mary’s students celebrate Belles Beginnings with designed posters welcoming incoming first years to campus.“That will really help girls target: ‘Who am I? What am I about? What are my passions?’” Nelson said. “When you get to college, you can have the study skills and you can have the intellect, but if you don’t have the confidence, if you don’t have the coping mechanisms, you’re going to kind of flounder. That wholeness framework is going to focus on that.”The road to begin building strong relationships, Allen said, starts with understanding the self through the new peer mentor program.“It’s all about exploring your core values and digging deep to know what makes you you, how you can take what you know about yourself and apply that to your friendships and how you get along with other people,” Allen said. “I think giving that to the freshmen is going to give them a huge leg up on being here and making strong relationships and having an amazing experience here.”Student Government Association (SGA) members welcomed incoming Belles with milk and cookies in their dorms Thursday night to make sure the new students felt ”really loved and special,” Nelson said.Friday will feature the Belles Outdoor Fiesta, a party with pinatas and guacamole, to provide students with another opportunity to meet one another as well as SGA members. Nelson and Allen said they hope to become familiar faces to first year students as another way to ease the transition to college.“It’s kind of like the more people you know and the more faces you’re familiar with, the more you feel at home,” Allen said. The new pre-Domerfest event will sport an ACDC-inspired theme with giveaways and t-shirts featuring the incoming class’ graduation year, Nelson and Allen explained.“We’re having food — we’re not making it, ‘You must be in by this time or you can’t go,’” Nelson said. “This year, it’s come between 8:30 and 9:30, and we’re going to hang out and have fun. You’re not going to feel miserable and then we’re going to walk you over to Domerfest.”Additionally, there will be an alternative event on the College’s campus for students who do not want to attend the traditional Notre Dame Domerfest.“[It’s] for the girls who don’t feel comfortable or maybe who don’t want to go to Notre Dame yet,” Allen said. “It gives them the option if they feel more comfortable staying, and that’s something we really want to emphasize — there’s a choice there, and we support whatever. We’ll have SGA girls at both, so the [first years], whether they want to go or not, they’re supported in both decisions.”The pair said they find it important that every first year student enjoys themselves at the pre-Domerfest happenings but know that they can stay on campus to build relationships with other Saint Mary’s women.“We just want each girl to be able to find their space, find their people, and it’s going to look different for each Belle,” Nelson said. “There’s no same girl, there’s no same interest. We just really wanted to create that space, and we’re really proud of the work that’s been done. We’re hoping that this gives them a good taste for what the rest of our term is going to look like.”The community-driven events will continue throughout the first week of classes with each night featuring a different event. Allen said this will continue first year students’ involvement around campus as well as encourage returning students to strengthen the relationships they have already made.“On our platform, where we talked so much about how we love the tradition of the College, we love the community and we want to enhance it. We want to make it better,” Nelson said. “Olivia and I, we hate when girls say there’s nothing to do at Saint Mary’s. We want them to say, ‘There’s awesome things to do at Saint Mary’s, and I was given a lot of opportunities.’”When it comes to the Saint Mary’s experience, Nelson said she hopes to provide first year students with an experience that will help them love the campus as much as a student returning for her final year.“It’s senior year, you come back and see your friends and it feels like home,” she said. “That’s the beauty of Saint Mary’s. It clicks; it happens. That’s senior year though. Freshman year, that feeling isn’t there yet. That’s where we lose retention, that’s where girls transfer, that’s where they say, ‘I don’t fit in here. There’s nothing to do here. I’m bored.’ ‘We want to start getting that ball rolling with the feeling that we have coming into senior year where ‘I am good and I love Saint Mary’s’ — we want them to be introduced to that feeling early on. They’re going to fall in love with it, I think, anyway. We just want it to happen sooner.”Tags: Domerfest, First Year Orientation, saint mary’s, Saint Mary’s Student Government Association Each academic year, Saint Mary’s focuses on one of its four core values — learning, community, faith and spirituality and justice — with this year’s focus being community. Seniors Terra Nelson and Olivia Allen, student body president and vice president respectively, said they plan to incorporate the Saint Mary’s sisterhood in as much of first year students’ experiences as possible, beginning with orientation.After receiving feedback on previous orientation experiences, Nelson said the pair have worked to make lasting changes to the peer mentor program as well as the weekend’s events to focus on community and wellness. These steps, along with the College’s increased focus on student life, sets to assist with first year students’ successes.last_img read more
