New attacks against journalists

first_imgNews Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives January 13, 2021 Find out more VenezuelaAmericas Follow the news on Venezuela August 7, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 New attacks against journalists There have been further threats and attacks against journalists duringstreet demonstrations by supporters of President Hugo Chávez. The latestincidents occurred on 2 August, when municipal police tried to dispersecrowds of Chávez supporters who were blocking Avenue Sucre in Catia and the23 de enero working-class district in Caracas.Among the journalists threatened were Elianta Quintero, José Tarache andJuan Méndez of Venevisión, Noé Pernía, César Sánchez and Wilmer Villasmil ofthe RCTV station, El Universal photographer Paulo Pérez Zambrano, ElNacional photographer Alejandro Delgado Cisneros and Andry Lara, aphotographer with La Voz de Guarenas, a provincial daily.A Televen TV crew consisting of Johann Merchán, cameraman Orlando Chong andChong’s assistant, Johnny Verdú was pursued by government supporters andforced to hide. They were finally able to give their attackers the slip bydisguising themselves. Later, when they were covering clashes betweendemonstrators and police, a municipal police officer took their camera fromthem and confiscated their film.President Chávez again berated the news media in his weekly televisedaddress “Aló Presidente” two days later, on 4 August, calling them “liars”and claiming they only reported what is going badly in Venezuela.On 5 August, Reporters Without Borders had called for enquiries into theattacks against some 15 journalists during clashes between governmentsupporters and opponents in front of the Supreme Court between 30 July and 1August.______________________________ Receive email alerts 05.08.2002 – Reporters without borders calls for inquiries into attacks on several journalistsReporters without borders has expressed concern over the attacks against severaljournalists during confrontations between government supporters and opponents infront of the Supreme Court (Tribunal Supremo de Justicia) in Caracas from 30July to 1 August 2002. In a letter to Interior and Justice Minister Diosdado Cabello, the organisation asked for the launch of inquiries into these attacks.”These events demonstrate that the press situation in Venezuela remains verydifficult, despite the beginning of dialogue between the government and opposition,” stated Reporters without borders Secretary-General Robert Ménard. “Those responsible must be identified and tried,” he added, noting that supporters of President Hugo Chavez are implicated in these recent incidents. In addition, Reporters without borders asked the government to guarantee the security of journalists, in accordance with directives from the Organisation of American States (OAS).According to information gathered by Reporters without borders, on 30 July, Ray Avilés of the television programme 24 horas, broadcast on the Venevisión network, was threatened by alleged supporters of President Chávez. The same day, eggs and other objects were thrown at radio journalist Yadiris Adrián.On 31 July, Gabriel Osorio, a photographer for the weekly “Primicia”, wasattacked. Alleged government supporters, who accused him of being a CIA agent,hit him, injuring his left hand, and stole his equipment. Moreover, at approximately 2:00 pm (local time), a tear-gas grenade was thrown at the Globovisión network’s headquarters. On 9 July, a grenade was also thrown at the network’s premises (see IFEX alert of 10 July 2002).On 1 August, Paulo Perez Zambrano, a photographer for the daily “El Universal”,and several other photographers and camera operators were attacked by Chávezsupporters, the Associated Press reported. According to the daily “El Nacional”,a police officer reportedly seized the camera and three roles of film belongingto photographer Alejandro Delgado Cisneros. During the confrontations, vehiclesfrom Venevisión, RCTV and Globovisión were damaged.   These incidents took place while government supporters and opponents were demonstrating in front of the Supreme Court, which, on 30 July, began examining the possibility of trying for rebellion the former military officers involved in the 11 April coup d’état. On 29 July, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) extended for six months the precautionary measures, adopted on 30 January, in favour of the Globovisión and RCTV networks.

Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick announces re-election bid

first_imgITHACA, N.Y. – Election Day is still eight months away, but local campaigning is officially underway. Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick announced via social media on Wednesday that he will run for re-election in 2019.Myrick had previously hinted at a 2019 run, asking his social media followers on Valentine’s Day whether he’d have their support for another term. The post listed accomplishments from his first two terms in office including building the waterfront trail, rebuilding the Commons, rebuilding the water treatment plant and investing in affordable housing.While the unscientific query was met with an outpouring of both praise and criticism, Myrick decided to re-enter the fray. Wednesday, he announced simply, “I’m running.”He added in a comment, “I love this city and I’m proud of the progress we’ve made. I believe we can do even better, and continue to be a progressive community that is welcoming and inclusive. I hope you’ll join our campaign.” Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] or 607-391-0328. More by Devon Magliozzi Your government news is made possible with support from: Myrick, 31, was first elected to Common Council at the age of 20 and was sworn in as Ithaca’s youngest mayor and first mayor of color in 2012. A Cornell alum originally from Earlville, N.Y., he beat out three challengers in the 2011 election and ran unopposed in 2015. He is the first to announce a mayoral bid in 2019.Myrick will not be the only City of Ithaca representative on the campaign trail this year. In addition to mayor, five Common Council seats will be on the ballot in November. George McGonigal (1st Ward), Ducson Nguyen (2nd Ward), Rob Gearhart (3rd Ward), Stephen Smith (4th Ward) and Laura Lewis (5th Ward) are all up for re-election.Primaries for local offices will take place on June 25. The primary date is months earlier this year than in past cycles, due to a change to New York’s election laws that consolidates state and federal primaries. As a result, those planning to run for office as a member of a party need to submit signed designating petitions by April 4 to get on the ballot.A full calendar of deadlines for potential candidates and voters is available from the Tompkins County Board of Elections.Featured image: Ithaca Voice file photo.

Two dead in Southern California as Woolsey Fire more than doubles in size over 24 hours

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(MALIBU, Calif.) — Two fast-moving wildfires that exploded in the hills of Southern California have forced thousands of evacuations, including the entire city of Malibu and a sprawling naval base, as extremely critical fire conditions roar back to life on Sunday.The largest of the two blazes, the Woolsey Fire, grew to 85,500 acres on Sunday after spreading south from Simi Valley in Ventura County to Agoura Hills in Los Angeles County, where the flames jumped the 101 Freeway and continued burning toward the Malibu area. That stretch of the freeway was shut down in both directions on Friday and remained so through the weekend.The fire grew over 10 times in size from Friday morning — when it was just 8,000 acres — to Saturday evening. It grew 2.5 times larger in just 24 hours Saturday.Two deaths at a residence in Los Angeles County were blamed on the Woolsey Fire, according to Cal Fire.Despite the growth on Saturday, conditions were expected to worsen over the weekend and into Monday. Extremely critical fire danger exists for the mountains between San Diego and Los Angeles with winds whipping as high as 70 mph.A small number of evacuation orders were lifted in the Simi Valley area late Saturday, but 170,000 residents were evacuated at the fire’s height. More than 50,000 homes were evacuated.The massive blaze was still only 15 percent contained Sunday evening, though over 800 firefighting personnel were working around the clock to quell the flames, according to Cal Fire.Late on Friday, President Donald Trump declared a state of emergency for California, freeing up federal resources to supplement local response efforts to combat three major wildfires blazing across the state. The declaration allows the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Emergency Management Agency to coordinate disaster relief efforts to help alleviate the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, provide support for emergency measures and free up federal resources.But on Saturday morning, Trump threatened to pull federal funding for California wildfires if the state didn’t “remedy” the situation.Residents in Ventura and Los Angeles counties have evacuated, including a mandatory evacuation for all of Malibu, according to the Ventura County Fire Department.Pepperdine University in Malibu ordered its students and faculty to shelter in place Friday night as the rest of the city was evacuating. The school lifted the shelter-in-place order Saturday morning but closed its offices and canceled all classes and events on its Malibu and Calabasas campuses through Tuesday.“I can’t speak to the facts, but at some point there was a determination made for the students to stay in place because at that moment it wasn’t safe to evacuate,” Chief Daryl Osby of the Los Angeles County Fire Department said. “So we protected the students where they were, and we were successful in that endeavor.”Andrew Benton, the president of Pepperdine University, later explained that the school, in cooperation with the fire department, has planned to shelter in place during these situations since 1993, after dangerous brush fires threatened its Malibu campus in 1985.The Woolsey Fire has damaged or destroyed a number of structures, including celebrity homes and a legendary Hollywood film set.Caitlyn Jenner posted an Instagram video on Friday, saying she had evacuated to a safe house but wasn’t sure what had become of her residence in the Malibu hills.Lady Gaga, Mark Hammill, Kim Kardashian West and her sister Kourntey Kardashian also reported via social media they they have fled their homes due to the wildfires.Meanwhile, the Woolsey Fire burned down a portion of Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills known as “Western Town,” where hundreds of movies and television shows, including HBO’s “Westworld,” have been filmed, dating back to the 1920s.Authorities have described the blaze as a very dangerous, wind-driven inferno.The Woolsey Fire ignited Thursday afternoon in Simi Valley, northeast of Thousand Oaks, not far from where a mass shooting claimed at least 12 lives late Wednesday night.A smaller blaze, the Hill Fire, ignited around the same time Thursday in the Santa Rosa Valley area of Ventura County, northwest of Thousand Oaks. The fire was burning an area of about 4,500 acres on Saturday, as firefighters increased the containment level to 25 percent.Several areas were under mandatory evacuation orders, including the Naval Base Ventura County’s facility in Point Mugu, located near Oxnard, according to the Ventura County Fire Department. Authorities had warned the flames could potentially spread all the way to the Pacific Ocean.The governor-elect of California, Gavin Newsom, on Friday issued an emergency proclamation for Ventura and Los Angeles counties due to the Woolsey and Hill fires.Meanwhile, a wildfire has laid waste to entire neighborhoods in Northern California.Several people were found dead Thursday in the torched town of Paradise, which has been almost entirely decimated by the Hill Fire, authorities said.

Nexans celebrates the next step in the construction of its Aurora cable installation vessel

first_img Image: Grand Blocks Ceremony with Ragnhild Katteland, Vice President Subsea & Land Systems at Nexans and Lars Lühr Olsen, Managing Director at Ulstein Verft. Photo: courtesy of Nexans. On 15 October 2019, Nexans hosted the grand block ceremony that represented a key step in the construction of its ground-breaking cable installation vessel, the ‘Nexans Aurora’. The vessel’s hull is currently being built at the CRIST shipyard in Poland. It will be completed at Ulstein Verft in Norway, with delivery planned for 2021.The grand blocks are the major components in the construction of the hull. They are being assembled at CRIST, in the Polish port of Gdynia. Representatives from Nexans, the shipbuilders, the ship designer and other project partners were present at the celebration.The Aurora design is based on the combined experience of Nexans, Skipsteknisk, Ulstein Verft and MAATS Tech, each world leadiers in their own fields. The aim is to produce a subsea cable and umbilical systems installation vessel for worldwide operations, covering the full range of shallow and deep subsea activities.Ragnhild Katteland, Vice President Subsea & Land Systems expresses that “The construction of this groundbreaking cable laying vessel is a major milestone in our long term strategy for the future of the global energy market. It will enable Nexans to maintain and extend our position as an important turnkey player in the field of subsea cables. In particular, the capability to install cables at even greater depths will  contribute to securing the world’s energy supply and advancing the the shift to environmentally friendly green electricity from renewables. Nexans Aurora will be a crucial asset.”“The vessel is well prepared for complex construction tasks in severe weather conditions anywhere in the world. Ulstein Verft will carry out the final outfitting, commissioning and testing prior to the vessel’s delivery in 2021, and we are well prepared and eager to finalize this newbuild project for Nexans,” states managing director Lars Lühr Olsen at Ulstein Verft.Bringing energy to the worldNexans Aurora builds on over a century of Nexans’ experience in submarine cable installation to bring cable installation to the next level in terms of capacity and capability.With a 10, 000 ton capacity, split turntable, and a world leading vessel design, Aurora is well prepared for complex construction tasks in severe weather conditions anywhere in the world.The DP3 cable laying vessel represents a next step in offshore renewables with high manoeuvrability and station keeping capabilities. She will be outfitted for power cable laying, including bundle laying, cable jointing and repair and cable system protection and trenching.The vessel will play a vital role in installation of Nexans’ cutting-edge high voltage (HV) submarine cables that will bring more energy to the world, helping connect offshore wind farms to the grid, supporting electrification of offshore oil and gas installations and creating interconnectors between countries.

Policy action needed to secure energy transition and climate goals, says IEA

first_imgThe International Energy Agency has challenged governments to take ‘decisive action’ on climate policy to achieve deep decarbonisation by mid-century Renewables like wind and solar have fared better than fossil fuels during the Covid-19 pandemic The energy industry stands at a “hugely consequential” crossroads, as government leaders contemplate their policy response to the twin crises of climate change and the coronavirus pandemic.In its flagship World Energy Outlook report for 2020, published today (13 October), the International Energy Agency (IEA) said “a surge of well-designed energy policies” is essential in order for sustainability goals to be met by mid-century.And it will be the role of governments to use their “unique capacities” to guide the low-carbon transition, by “providing the strategic vision, the spur to innovation, the incentives for consumers, the policy signals and the public finance that catalyses action by private actors”.The agency said the next ten years will be pivotal to defining whether or not long-term decarbonisation targets are achieved – a task made more difficult by the huge uncertainty that remains over how the global health crisis, and a recovery from it, will unfold. Stimulus funds are ‘historic opportunity’ for governments to accelerate energy transition and climate actionDeep disruption has thrown energy norms into disarray this year. Over the course of 2020, global energy demand will fall by 5%, energy-related CO2 emissions by 7% and energy investments by a huge 18%.Oil markets in particular have been upended, as lockdowns decimated global fuel demand, putting huge negative pressure on commodity prices and forcing countries and companies to scale back their production efforts.“Whether this upheaval ultimately helps or hinders efforts to accelerate clean-energy transitions and reach international energy and climate goals will depend on how governments respond to today’s challenges,” the IEA said.But the “massive sums of money” that policymakers are in the process of committing to economic stimulus measures offer an “historic opportunity to significantly accelerate transitions towards a cleaner and more resilient energy future”. Solar on track to set new recordsIn each of the four scenarios projected by the IEA, renewable energy grows in stature over the next decade, particularly solar photovoltaic (PV).“I see solar becoming the new king of the world’s electricity markets,” said IEA executive director Dr Fatih Birol. “Based on today’s policy settings, it is on track to set new records for deployment every year after 2022.“If governments and investors step up their clean-energy efforts in line with our Sustainable Development Scenario, the growth of both solar and wind would be even more spectacular – and hugely encouraging for overcoming the world’s climate challenge.”Solar power is poised for strong growth over the next decadeHowever, the report warns that growth in renewable energy needs to be matched by investments into improving national electricity grids. Without enough investment, grids will prove to be “a weak link in the transformation of the power sector”, with implications for the “reliability and security of electricity supply”.Under the Stated Policies Scenario – which takes into account all the currently-announced policy intentions and targets – the share of coal in the global energy mix falls below 20% for the first time since the industrial revolution, with demand not returning to pre-coronavirus levels.Meanwhile, natural gas demand will grow “significantly”, driven by markets in Asia.Over the next decade, renewables are expected to meet 80% of all new electricity demand growth, with hydropower remaining the dominant source, but solar the main driver of growth.center_img IEA sees peak oil demand before 2030Much has been discussed about whether or not the pandemic has accelerated the time of “peak oil” demand.Last month, UK oil major BP suggested global oil demand may never recover to its 2019 level of almost 100 million barrels per day. But the oil-producer group Opec last week offered a different vision, forecasting demand growth for the next two decades, before plateauing in the 2040s.Oil demand faces an uncertain future post-coronavirusThe IEA’s outlook takes a middle ground. “The era of global oil demand growth will come to an end in the next decade,” said Dr Birol. “But without a large shift in government policies, there is no sign of a rapid decline.“Based on today’s policy settings, a global economic rebound would soon push oil demand back to pre-crisis levels.” Governments have responsibility to take ‘decisive action’ on climate and energy policyGoing beyond currently-stated policy targets, the IEA said implementation of its Sustainable Development Scenario – where clean-energy policies and investments are accelerated in alignment with the Paris Agreement – can put the global energy system on a different path to addressing climate change.“As well as rapid growth of solar, wind and energy-efficiency technologies, the next 10 years would see a major scaling up of hydrogen and carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS), and new momentum behind nuclear power,” the agency said.Dr Birol added: “Only faster structural changes to the way we produce and consume energy can break the emissions trend for good.“Governments have the capacity and the responsibility to take decisive actions to accelerate clean-energy transitions and put the world on a path to reaching our climate goals, including net-zero emissions.”For the first time, the IEA included a “net-zero emissions by 2050” scenario in its annual World Energy Outlook, warning the scale of the task to bring the world to carbon neutrality by mid-century is “extremely challenging”, and will demand “dramatic additional actions over the next 10 years”.For example, a 40% reduction in emissions by 2030 will require the decarbonisation of 75% of the world’s electricity generation – compared to less than 40% in 2019. And more than half of all passenger vehicles sold by the end of the decade will need to be electric, up from just 2.5% in 2019.last_img read more
