FranceEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders also stressed on 13 January that the courts should never take the view that journalists were police auxiliaries. “The protection of sources is an inviolable principle to which there can be no exceptions. We consider that this legal gesture has just one aim which is to intimidate the journalists’ sources,” it said.

Police with her noted all the newspaper’s fax numbers and seized two computers belonging to journalists Olivia Recasens and Jean-Michel Décujis, in a bid to identify their sources on the doping story. Police and the magistrate questioned journalist Christophe Labbé the same afternoon while Décujis will be interviewed on 14 January.The Nanterre prosecutor’s office launched a legal action at the start of 2004 for violating the confidentiality of an investigation after Le Point on 22 January carried extracts of phone-tapped conversations ordered by Judge Richard Pallain in the doping scandal involving cycling competitors in the Confidis case.Divulging the results of phone-tapping can be seen as a violation of confidentiality of an investigation.The courts on 14 December ordered Le Point’s management to quickly produce full details of the newspaper’s hierarchy with details of all staff phone and fax numbers. Chief Executive Officer Franz-Olivier Giesbert, only sent the judge the same details that are published in the newspaper itself.L’Equipe had on 9 April 2004 carried extensive extracts of official interviews with several Cofidis riders, some of whom were under investigation in the alleged doping scandal within the cycle team.A Nanterre judge decided after the management of Cofidis had issued a writ against l’Equipe that the confidentiality of the investigation did not bind the daily’s journalists.Reporters Without Borders, the French federation of press agencies and reporters in the written and broadcast press in September 2004 set up a working group with the aim of formulating clear proposals to the Justice Minister to ensure permanent protection of sources. “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story News to go further May 10, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Rise in anti-Asian American hate crimes may lead to mental health crisis

By on May 18, 2021

first_imgkali9/iStockBy Dr. MISHAL REJA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — Crisanna Tang, a New York-based health care worker, was just on her way to work.“A man got on the train without a mask,” said Tang, a 31-year-old Chinese American born in New Jersey and raised in Port St. Lucie, Florida, “and he sits across from me. He started saying, ‘Go back to China,’ and started spitting all over me, and said all these things about Chinese people causing the virus.”Tang is not alone. The advocacy group Stop AAPI Hate said it’s received almost 3,000 reported incidents of aggression targeting at Asian Americans between March and December 2020. The elderly and women were disproportionately attacked.A growing body of research suggests that experiencing such racist aggression can have serious mental health impacts.A study published in Ethnic and Racial Studies found that Asian Americans who encountered COVID-19-related discrimination experienced higher levels of anxiety and depression. And another review of 121 studies found that youths who experienced discrimination were more likely to develop chronic mental health problems.“We know that when an individual experiences racial trauma, it can lead to a host of mental health issues — increased anxiety, depression, trouble eating and sleeping,” Joo Han, deputy director of the Asian American Federation, told ABC News.Russell Jeung, co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate, said that many victims “are now displaying signs of racial trauma, where they have long-term effects of depression, anxiety and somatic symptoms.”Asian Americans were considered a high-risk group even before the pandemic, according to mental health experts. A study by the Asian American Federation found that Asian Americans had some of the highest rates of depression and suicide, and were less likely to seek help compared with other racial groups.“The mental health toll that Asian Americans have always had to live with has been one of invisibility,” said Sherry Wang, an associate professor in the Counseling Psychology Department at Santa Clara University. “Like colorblindness — not really seeing Asian Americans as people of color who struggle with issues of racism, poverty and health inequities.”Experts have said Asian Americans are partly held back by the “model minority” myth, which stereotypes them as a compliant group that’s upwardly mobile and not in need of extra help or attention.“The model minority myth continues to be a challenge — despite the fact that Asian Americans are the poorest group in New York City,” with about 1 in 4 living in poverty, Han noted, adding that only about 1.4% of the city’s social service contracts are for nonprofits serving Asian Americans even though they make up 5.6% of the population.Skyrocketing unemployment among Asian Americans during the pandemic also has worsened the mental health of many. An AAF report found that “both the high rate of unemployment among Asian New Yorkers and the struggles of Asian small businesses to keep their doors open have created a high level of stress and anxiety in our community.”“We need to make sure we’re calling on elected leaders and funders to invest in culturally competent mental health services,” Han explained, “so this doesn’t become a crisis of its own making.”Mishal Reja, M.D., an incoming gastroenterology fellow at State University of New York, Downstate, is a contributor to the ABC News Medical Unit.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Rightmove rolls out 3D virtual tours on mobile app and adds tab to website

By on May 7, 2021

first_imgHome » News » Marketing » Rightmove rolls out 3D virtual tours on mobile app and adds tab to website previous nextMarketingRightmove rolls out 3D virtual tours on mobile app and adds tab to websiteMove comes after portal previously resisted calls to make the technology more obvious on its website and available on its mobile phone app.Nigel Lewis12th December 20185 Comments5,663 Views Rightmove has secretly rolled out 3D virtual tours across its mobile platform and added a tab on its main website after many years of opting not to actively promote the technology across all of its channels.In the past the portal has said it would only actively support virtual 360-degree tours when the technology gained more widespread adoption among estate agents, a threshold which now appears to have been reached.“Rightmove’s shift to making 360 virtual tours visible across mobile devices is a clear sign that the demand and engagement for and with 360 virtual tours is on the increase. This sentiment is mirrored by many other portals and agents across various other countries that 360 virtual tours are the future and its time to take to them seriously,” says Andrew Nicholls, CEO of 3D virtual tour supplier Eyespy360.com.“It’s really great that Rightmove have listened to what the market wants and acted accordingly. I’m delighted that consumers will now get to experience virtual tours anywhere at anytime.”One of the first agents to spot its virtual tours on Rightmove’s smartphone app is Base Properties, founded by Kristian Byfield.  He says he noticed his 360-degree tours were available on Rightmove yesterday despite not being there a few days before.3D virtual tours“This is a huge boost for virtual tours and will mark a step change in the way house hunters interact with listings,” says Kristian (left).“I’ve been trying to lobby both Rightmove and Zoopla to make virtual tours more ‘front and centre’ for their users, so it’s good to see one of them doing this.“Floor plans used to be difficult for people to spot on the portals but are now easy to spot, and today’s update by Rightmove marks the moment when virtual tours will become an expected part of the marketing mix.”A Rightmove spokesperson told The Negotiator: “Previously, the tours were only accessible on desktop and agents can continue to upload virtual tours in the usual way through their feed or Rightmove Admin.“The move will offer more exposure for those agents who create virtual tours for their vendors. The team will be monitoring how home hunters use the additional feature on mobile to ensure they are getting the optimum experience when searching for their next home.”  Rightmove kristian byfield 3D virtual tours base properties EyeSpy 360 December 12, 2018Nigel Lewis5 commentsJon Lindsay, Spacedust Films Spacedust Films 21st February 2019 at 11:49 amHi – anyone got a link so I can see it in action?Log in to ReplyJon Lindsay, Spacedust Films Spacedust Films 22nd December 2018 at 5:52 pmHi Nigel – any more news on this?Log in to ReplyMartin Seib, Smart Property Tours Smart Property Tours 13th December 2018 at 6:17 pmI have looked at Base Properties’ listings on Rightmove using a desktop web browser and also using the latest version of the Rightmove app (5.6.4).On the desktop, the ‘Virtual Tour’ tab does appear as circled above and when you click on it, you see a text link to the virtual tour which opens in a pop out browser window. This is good but it’s not new. You can see many older Rightmove listings with ‘Virtual Tour’ tabs which lead to similar 360 photo tours from all sorts of different vendors.Further, when I look at the corresponding listings using the app on my iPhone, there is no sign of the virtual tour whatsoever so I can’t see that it anything has been rolled out on mobile at all. Can anybody point me at it please?I was hoping that this announcement was for proper embedded 360 video support on Rightmove which we could use to embed our 360 Smart Property Tour videos in the same way as we embed our 2D tours but it looks like we are going to have to stay with pop outs on Rightmove for all things 360 for the time being at least.Log in to ReplyNigel Lewis, Online Editor, The Negotiator Online Editor, The Negotiator 14th December 2018 at 11:16 amHi Martin – we contacted Rightmove to ask whether the upgrade spotted by some agents including Base was ‘real’ and they confirmed it was. So I guess it may take a while to roll out – but it’s definitely happening.Log in to ReplyMartin Seib, Smart Property Tours Smart Property Tours 15th December 2018 at 10:09 amHi Nigel, Thank you for doing that.

Student security risks exposed

By on May 3, 2021

first_imgA Cherwell survey has revealed that students are compromising college security by failing to take precautions against break-ins and thefts. The results coincide with a recent burglary at St John’s College where a thief entered the grounds and gained access to students’ rooms. A man reportedly entered four or five students’ rooms, and stole a laptop and other items. 150 students took part in the survey, 59% of whom said they had loaned their access card or key to another student, and 11% of whom said they had loaned them to someone who wasn’t a student. Over half of students said they had let someone into college they didn’t recognise and only 5% claimed always to ask a person’s name if they don’t know who they are. Some 37% of students said they have lost their access card or key one or more times, and 31% that they wouldn’t report such a loss to the college immediately. A number of JCR Presidents were concerned about college security upon hearing the statistics. Dani Quinn, of Merton, said, “One area of concern for many of us is that we receive no warning when workmen (e.g. electricians) are going to be knocking on our doors to do checks. It’s embarrassing to ask for ID, and students often feel quite vulnerable when they have unidentified strangers in their rooms.” St Peter’s College has taken steps recently to reduce the chances of college security being jeopardised by students’ carelessness. Joel Mullan, JCR President commented, “The main college site is quite well protected. In the last year, college have taken difficult, unpopular, but necessary decisions to enhance security – such as locking both of the peripheral gates overnight. Other things like the recent successful request for overnight closure of Bulwarks Lane will undoubtedly also improve things. “Security at the annexes is more questionable – a few weeks ago there was an attempted burglary – but we’ll be working with college in the next few months and suggesting improvements which can be made,” he added. In response to the survey, one third year at Worcester College said, “I leave my door open all the time. Sometimes we see guys wandering about our flat but we assume they’re there for maintenance.” Caroline Thomas, Home Bursar of New College, commented, “I doubt that any Home Bursar or Head Porter would be surprised by these statistics. As part of the Freshers’ Week induction, New College makes it clear that most thefts occur from rooms that have been left unlocked or because students have allowed unknown people to follow them into a building or staircase. In other words, students are warned of the risks from day one.” The Domestic Bursar of University College, Elizabeth Crawford said, “The College is constantly trying to raise awareness on these issues (via e mail, electronic notices and verbal advice through the JCR). We are acutely conscious that our buildings and community are only as safe as College members allow them to be. But it is also important to get the balance right and not make students feel that they are living in a locked down and heavily regulated environment.” “We have also taken out insurance against losses with Endsleigh for students who live in college accommodation, and the terms of this insurance take full account of students’ apparently relaxed approach to security. Thames Valley Police always start from the assumption that any security measures put in place are actually used,” she said. Students have also been warned by Thames Valley Police in recent weeks to beware of burglars who follow students home and gain unauthorised access to colleges and student housing. Ian Ashpole, a student who had something stolen during the St John’s burglary said, “He got into my room because I left my door unlocked – that’s how he got into anyone’s room. I’ve been locking my door since then, though”. A message to members of the JCR following the incident said, “Make sure that if you leave your room you lock your door, especially if you have valuable items in your room such as phones, laptops etc. Even if you are leaving for a minute or two this is ample time for a professional thief to operate. Also please try to ensure that the doors at the bottom of staircases are kept shut where possible, if they are left wide open then they provide no security whatsoever.”last_img read more

The mystique of merit pay

By on March 1, 2021

first_imgThe questions of whether to tie teachers’ pay to classroom performance, and whether that might lead to improved student achievement, have long been subjects of intense debate.The issue is again at the forefront of the national dialogue in the wake of President Barack Obama’s “Race to the Top” education initiative, a $4 billion competitive grant program that rewards states that develop academic reforms to boost school improvement, and encourages states to embrace merit-pay plans.In a two-day seminar at Harvard last week (June 3-4), scholars, politicians, and educators gathered at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) to discuss the value and feasibility of performance pay. The Harvard Program on Education Policy and Governance at HKS organized the conference, which was called “Performance Pay: Will it Work? Is it Politically Viable?”While there is evidence suggesting that some merit-pay initiatives can improve student performance, the experts agreed that support for such programs is mixed, and that much research needs to be done to evaluate their overall effectiveness.Obama’s position on performance pay has grown increasingly supportive, said Andrew Smarick of the American Enterprise Institute and Thomas B. Fordham Institute, who explored the political dimensions to the merit-pay debate. Smarick said that Arne Duncan, Obama’s secretary of education, supported performance-pay programs while he was chief executive of the Chicago Public Schools, and also backed its inclusion in “Race to the Top” applications.But the Obama administration favors merit-pay programs, said Smarick, as part of a “range of personnel and policy decisions” to help school performance.“They like performance pay, but it’s going to be part of a wide network of different activities that improve the teaching profession,” said Smarick, adding, “It’s clear that they are trying to build this new policy framework of trying to make sure that evaluations and student test data, and this whole suite of reforms, are integrated together.”Yet getting teacher unions to support merit-pay plans broadly will be difficult, said Smarick, who noted that only Delaware (one of the two states to receive grants in the first round of “Race to the Top” applications) had full union support.“This deference to unions is just something you can’t get around, in my view,” he said.Responding to Smarick’s comments, Roberto J. Rodríguez, who serves on the White House Domestic Policy Council as special assistant to the president for education, agreed that performance pay plays an important part in the administration’s broader educational reform agenda.“We really are seeking to … challenge the status quo in our schools … and have really sought to bring folks together around performance-based compensation reform, as well as around a whole host of our education reform platforms, and really look at how we can drive change for kids.”The seminar included a series of papers that addressed a variety of merit-pay topics, including programs operating in American school districts and in other countries.In addition, research by Sarena Goodman and Lesley Turner of Columbia University examined a New York City bonus-pay program. According to Goodman, the initiative had little impact on teacher effort or student achievement largely because of its group-based structure that led to “free-riding” behavior by some participants who did not embrace the program.“What we argue with this paper is that the structure of this bonus program, in particular … school-level bonuses, led to ‘free riding,’ which significantly reduced incentives for teachers to change their behavior,” said Goodman.Responding to the paper’s findings, Elena Llaudet, a graduate student and research associate at Harvard’s Department of Government, called for more analysis of such programs to determine their true value.“We need more pilot programs … implemented and evaluated,” she said, “so that we can tease out which structures of merit-pay programs work and which don’t.”last_img read more

B’way Grosses: The Book of Mormon Stands Strong in Summer Months

By on January 18, 2021

first_imgThe Book of Mormon has no intention of turning it off on the Great White Way any time soon. The perennial box office favorite secured the top spot in terms of capacity—a position usually reserved for Fun Home in recent months. In their final week on the Main Stem, Penn and Teller, along with Broadway’s latest whopper Hamilton and usual suspects The Lion King, Wicked and Aladdin led the pack as the top five grossing shows. On the other end of the spectrum, last year’s Best Musical winner, A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder, only brought in $517,799, making it the fifth lowest grossing show of the week. Another Tony-winning tuner showing signs of decline is Hedwig and the Angry Inch, but it is possible that numbers will rise as the latest star to don the wig, Taye Diggs, settles into the role and that a low running cost will keep the show afloat.Here’s a look at who was on top—and who was not—for the week ending August 16:FRONTRUNNERS (By Gross)1. The Lion King ($2,165,067)2. Wicked ($1,913,037)3.
