Blogger belonging to democratic party jailed for ten days

first_imgNews Organisation An activist with the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP), Yap Keng Ho, was sent to prison for ten days by a court on 23 November 2006 after he refused to pay a fine of 2,000 dollars for speaking publicly and posting film on his blog (http://uncleyap-news.blogspot.com/) of an illegal rally of his party. He was taken immediately to jail after refusing to pay the fine and said he would go on hunger strike to protest at his imprisonment and to expose the regime’s corruption.Another party activist, Ghandi Ambalam, and one of the SDP’s leaders, Chee Soon Juan, are also serving a three-week prison sentence for having taken part in the same rally, on 22 April. In Singapore, no gathering of more than four people is permitted without police approval.——————————————————-13.11.06Internet threatened by proposed new rules, while blogger prosecuted over video of himself speaking in publicReporters Without Borders voiced concern today about proposed criminal code amendments designed to encourage online self-censorship and to enable the authorities to prosecute bloggers living abroad. The organisation also condemned the imminent prosecution of opposition member Yap Keng Ho for posting a video of one of his public addresses online.“These new measures aim to impose the same rules on Internet users as journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “This is not good news for those aware of the lack of media independence in Singapore. The government’s response to the development of the Singaporean blogosphere is repression, as the blogosphere has introduced an unprecedented degree of diversity of views in the city state.”Reporters Without Borders added: “The government is also sending a message to the many Singaporeans living abroad, especially students, reminding them of the need to censor themselves when writing about their country.”The amendments affecting the Internet are part of a major, government-proposed overhaul of the criminal code that will come before parliament at the beginning of 2007. According to the South-East Asian Press Alliance (SEAPA), the new rules aim above all to control online content. Bloggers who post content that is libellous or disrupts “religious harmony” could get heavy fines or prison sentences.The proposed criminal code amendments come after several cases involving bloggers. For example, Jiahao Chen, a student finishing his studies in the United States, was forced in April 2005 to close down his site after being accused of defamation for criticising a system of university grants administered by a governmental agency, A*STAR (more details).The SEAPA said the proposed rule changes would affect Internet users posting information online from abroad, which would seem to be a direct response to the problem caused by Jiahao.Meanwhile, Yap Keng Ho of the opposition Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) has been accused of posting a video of himself speaking in public on his blog (http://uncleyap-news.blogspot.com). After questioning him on 6 November, a judge ordered him to remove all the documents relating to his public address. His blog is still accessible and the video is still online, but he is to be tried shortly.No meeting of more than four people can take place in Singapore without police permission. According to the SEAPA, one of the criminal code amendments proposed by the government would restrict the “right of assembly” even more.

Liverpool and Man United draw

first_imgLIVERPOOL and Manchester United played out a goalless and uneventful stalemate on a disappointing night at Anfield.Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool would have drawn level on points with leaders Manchester City with a fifth successive Premier League victory, but were subdued by a classic Jose Mourinho performance of defensive organisation and discipline.United did not allow Liverpool to build the momentum and intensity that characterised their game this season, while Mourinho’s limited attacking ambitions ensured chances were at a premium.The Portuguese was still grateful for two fine second-half saves from goalkeeper David de Gea, who dived low to stop Emre Can and saved athletically from Philippe Coutinho’s 25-yard effort.United’s best chance also came in the second half, but the unmarked Zlatan Ibrahimovic directed Paul Pogba’s cross off target.last_img read more

Syracuse upperclassmen look for revenge against top-flight Northwestern

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Senior defender Natalie Glanell is worried she might have trouble falling asleep on Saturday night. That’s understandable considering Syracuse is playing Northwestern on Sunday, a team that has given the senior class nightmares during the past three seasons.The two squads have met four times in that span, including the 2012 national title game. And the Wildcats clawed their way to victory on each occasion. “It’s been a tight game, but we always come out on the wrong side,” SU senior attack Alyssa Murray said. “This year, we’re ready to come out with a good, strong win.”That will be the goal this weekend as Murray, Glanell and their fellow upperclassmen have one more chance to lead No. 3 Syracuse (8-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) past the pesky No. 7 Wildcats (4-2, 2-1 American Lacrosse) in the Carrier Dome on Sunday at 1 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU’s seniors have contributed an all facets on the team’s current two-game winning streak. Murray and Katie Webster paced the offense with a combined seven goals and four assists, while defenders Glanell, Kasey Mock and Liz Harbeson helped the defense force 38 turnovers.Alyssa Costantino has also shined with eight saves between the pipes.And with one of the most anticipated games of the year up next, Glanell said it would take similar efforts from every senior for the Orange to get the revenge it so desperately wants.“You can compare it as much as you want to the other seasons,” Glanell said, “but it’s going to come down to how we come out on Sunday. It’s going to be different than every other time we’ve played them.”The Class of 2014 can find a small confidence boost from the fact that three of its duels with NU were decided by two goals or fewer, including one in overtime. Still, that’s not enough to erase the frustration from a quartet of setbacks.None has stung more than the championship game loss. After jumping out to a two-goal lead, the Orange surrendered a three-goal outburst at the end of the first half and never recovered. Although Murray will never forget how lucky she was to play in the national final, she said the upperclassmen on the team are still haunted by the 8-6 defeat.“Getting to play in the national championship, but not getting the win was really a horrible feeling in your stomach,” Murray said “It just gives you a little extra drive, especially when you’re playing the team that made you get that feeling in your stomach two years ago.”Adding to the significance of the game is Murray’s familiarity with a number of names on the Northwestern roster. Murray played with NU attack Christina Esposito at West Babylon (N.Y.) Senior High School and has also built acquaintances with Kara Mupo and leading goal-scorer Alyssa Leonard.“It’s good to play people that you know,” Murray said. “It’s really competitive, and you just want those bragging rights.”Syracuse head coach Gary Gait pinpointed winning draw controls as a key to beat the Wildcats. Senior Kirkland Locey and teammate Kailah Kempney struggled in the circle against Maryland on March 10, and Gait said lost opportunities doomed his squad that evening.“We didn’t get to the 50 percent and missed four or five more possessions,” Gait said. “We’ve got to compete in those areas and win those battles.”Glanell said the determining factor will be the Orange’s chemistry and that if all players communicate with one another and do their jobs, the fifth time should be the charm for the seniors. “When everyone’s on the same page, we kill it. We crush it,” Glanell said. “We come out on top when we’re working together, and that’s what it’s all about.” Comments Published on March 22, 2014 at 1:30 pm Contact Tyler: [email protected]last_img read more

Injury puts career year on hold for ‘frustrated’ Larry Nance Jr.

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers withstand frantic final minute to beat Memphis 107-102 What Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball had to say about his shoe line at ComplexCon LOS ANGELES – In more than two years as a Laker, things had never been going better for Larry Nance Jr. He won a starting job in training camp, had embraced and thrived in Coach Luke Walton’s system and had begun to show he may have a future beyond an NBA glue guy.Then he bit on a pump fake and all of that was put on hold.“It was one of those immediate (things),” Nance said. “I knew what happened.”Related Articles “It’s been unfortunate that just little things that have been nicking at me,” Nance said. “This year I feel healthy and I feel great and everything.”To make matters worse, Nance is an avid video game player. The injury not only sidelined him from his job, but also from his preferred hobby away from basketball.“It hurts especially because the new ‘Call of Duty’ just came out,” Nance said. “I’ve got nothing to do, so I’m just sitting around watching TV all day.”He said he would be in the gym “just as much as” the rest of the Lakers, doing what he can with just his healthy right hand. He will not travel on their upcoming four-game trip, which starts Wednesday in Boston.Kyle Kuzma has started both games at power forward since Nance’s injury. Walton said Kuzma is a fill-in starter for now, but did not rule out the possibility of him winning the job long-term.Walton said starting is something Nance has “obviously been trying to work toward” since being drafted 27th overall in 2015.“Now injury knocks him out,” Walton said. “I know what that’s like as a player. It can be frustrating. You start to feel, at least I started to feel a little distant from my team.”For now, he gets to be a fan.“I was watching last game (against Brooklyn) and they looked pretty good to me,” he said. “Obviously defense is probably where we’re going to miss me the most, but … if there’s a position we have super-depth at, it’s the power forward spot.”PACE JAMThe Lakers entered Sunday playing the third-fastest pace in the NBA, behind only Brooklyn and Phoenix. Memphis coach David Fizdale, who has earned praise for getting the “Grit N’ Grind” Grizzlies to play faster, took it a step further, calling the Lakers “arguably the fastest team in the league.”“I thought I would never say that with a Brook Lopez team,” Fizdale said. “But they fly and Brook is the perfect complement to them.”Fizdale compared Lopez with the Lakers to Memphis stalwart Marc Gasol.“He is a stabilizing guy who can stretch the floor, who can post, who can pass out of the post,” Fizdale said. “It is really a good fit for them.”ALSOJulius Randle became the 10th member of the 2014 draft class to reach 2,000 career points despite missing 81 games his rookie season with a broken leg. … Andrew Bogut was inactive for his second straight game with back spasms, but Walton said the veteran center is just day-to-day.center_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersNance underwent surgery the next day to repair a fractured bone in his left hand and is expected to be out 4-6 weeks. Speaking to reporters for the first time since the injury, Nance on Sunday said he was “frustrated” and called the injury “one of those bum-luck type deals.”And the timing, he acknowledged, made it tougher.“I was given a really good chance,” he said, “was making the most of it. So I’m just anxious to get back and keep making a good impression.”Nance was averaging 10.6 points and 7.4 rebounds in 23.1 minutes while shooting 61.4 percent from the field.The 24-year-old has battled various maladies throughout his career. He has never played more than 63 games in a season. Last year, he missed 16 games with a bone bruise in his left knee. The year before, it was soreness in his right knee that slowed him. Future comes early for Lakers and Kyle Kuzma What happened was that in the third quarter of Thursday’s loss in Portland, Caleb Swanigan got Nance off his feet. When the Portland forward rose to shoot, Nance was coming down and the third-year Laker’s left hand was sandwiched between the two forces.last_img read more

Martian Chronicles

first_imgRecent news stories about Mars can be categorized into past, present, and future.Mars past:  How Mars formed is a convoluted story.  That is evident from a report on PhysOrg that might suggest Mars modelers are drinking too much to relieve stress: “‘Marstinis’ could help explain why the red planet is so small.”  Mars seems the right size for itself, but for modelers, it is too small for their theories.  The article describes a kind of complex billiard game requiring Mars to migrate outward before it could grow its expected size.  As it went, it perturbed smaller planetesimals, objects the modelers dubbed “Marstinis.”  Those, in turn, might have gotten perturbed by giant planets, which were also migrating at the time.  This complex scenario has the benefit of simultaneously providing source material to explain another mystery – the Late Heavy Bombardment, needed to explain cratering on the moon.    Divining Mars history in meteorites was discussed in another article on PhysOrg.  Studying wafer-thin slices of meteorites thought to have landed on Earth from Mars, scientists look for clues indicating large impacts on the red planet.  From conclusions reached, they try to infer impact effects on subsurface water and the production of carbonates, serpentine, clay and methane.  A scientist promised, “We are now starting to build a realistic model for how water deposited minerals formed on Mars, showing that impact heating was an important process.”Mars present:  Several sources reported the surprise that Mars’ sand dunes can change quickly: Space.com, the BBC News, and PhysOrg among them.  “Scientists had considered the dunes to be fairly static, shaped long ago when winds on the planet’s surface were much stronger than seen today,” according to analysis of images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter HiRISE camera.  “Several sets of before-and-after images from HiRISE over a period covering two Martian years – four Earth years – tell a different story.”    Scientists are seeking to understand how carbon dioxide sublimation – a process not occurring on earth – contributes to the rapid changes.  “There’s lots of debate about whether features we see on Mars could be produced in the current Mars climate or whether they require different conditions,” one scientist commented.  “The numbers and magnitude of the changes have been really surprising,” another said.    Meanwhile, the THEMIS infrared camera on the Mars Odyssey orbiter, NASA’s longest-running Mars mission, is studying Mars dust.  Dull as that sounds, it is actually an important source of information on Mars, as PhysOrg explained.  Principal investigator Philip Christensen has a puzzle: “There’s a good question why Mars isn’t a billiard-ball planet covered by a kilometer of dust,” he said, considering that scientists believe it has been there 4.5 billion years.  Explaining why the dust layer is thin required imagination: “Well, maybe throughout most of its history, Mars has had too thin an atmosphere to make dust or initiate saltation or wind abrasion,” he said; “No dust devils, no storms.”    Mars seems poised on the brink of global dust storms that occasionally obscure the entire surface of the planet with dust as fine as talcum powder.  Calculations show that 100 meters of dust should blanket the planet in 4.5 billion years given current estimated dust creation rates.  To wriggle out of that anomaly, Christensen imagined that the atmosphere cycles in and out, actively creating dust only 2% of the time.  Even so, that would have produced 2 meters of dust on Mars, which he says is “about right,” provided he be forgiven for tweaking an unseen history to match the observations.Mars future:  Interesting missions are being planned for Mars.  The big one is Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s long-awaited Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), nicknamed “Curiosity,” scheduled for launch in the fall.  Science Daily talked about its Sample Analysis at Mars instrument (SAM), which, along with other instruments, “will check for the ingredients of life.”  Ingredients is the operative word.  MSL will be unable to detect life, but may be able to determine once for all whether organic molecules are found on the Red Planet.    An article about future Mars missions on PhysOrg has illustrations reminiscent of sci-if comic books.  The Center for Space Nuclear Research at Idaho National Laboratory is working on fleets of “Mars hoppers” they feel would be more efficient explorers of the Martian surface than rovers.  CSNR’s mission design includes a method for sample return – delivering Martian material back to Earth for analysis.  “A single rocket launch from Earth could deploy several hoppers at once,” the article explained.  “A few dozen hoppers could map the entire Martian surface in a few years…. Hoppers could also serve as a network of weather stations monitoring the Martian climate and could collect a trove of air, rock and soil samples to send back to Earth.”Meanwhile, back on Earth, a volunteer crew of six have “reached Mars orbit” in a simulated experiment testing how humans might endure long term space travel.  PhysOrg reported on the milestone of “Mars200” project, now 244 days into their experiment living and working in hermetically-sealed modules as if traveling to Mars and back.  On February 14 (Valentine’s Day) they get to emerge onto a simulated Martian surface.  The “arrival” back on Earth (a place they never really left) occurs in early November.Mars exists in the present.  We don’t see Mars in the past, or in the future.  We see effects produced by an unobserved history, and can extrapolate current processes a reasonable amount forward.  When scientists tweak too many parameters in their imagined scenarios – moving the planet in and out, imagining lucky-strike impacts at certain times and places where needed for theory, turning the atmosphere on and off to maintain a belief in billions of years, we have good reason to doubt the infallibility of their science.  Remember that scientific explanation is an entirely different enterprise than scientific discovery.  Let’s discover!  Go forth and conquer with Curiosity and better instrumentation.  Hop to it.  Data clear the fog and put storytellers out of business.  But always keep a wary eye on the opinions of scientists who practice divination, or who make reckless drafts on the bank of time.(Visited 11 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Chinese government pledges billions to industrialise Africa

first_img21 October 2015The Chinese government reiterated its commitment to support industrialisation in South Africa and the rest of the African continent by pledging $50-billion (R668- billion) towards industrialisation projects.According to a press release, the pledge was announced during a courtesy visit by China’s commerce vice-minister, Zhang Xiangchen, to Lionel October, the director-general in the Department of Trade and Industry, in Pretoria this week.The courtesy visit also focused on the upcoming Forum on China-Africa Co- operation (Focac), which will be hosted in Johannesburg on 4 and 5 December.Initiatives like these fall in line with South Africa’s National Development Plan that has as its aim an improved country and continent. Its goals are to end poverty and build a strong, resilient and smart economy.Xiangchen said there were several new measures that the Chinese government was finalising to further promote industrialisation and development of the African continent as a whole.“China-Africa industrialisation partnerships will be at the forefront of any development in the continent followed by agricultural activities. China will also increase investments in Africa especially in the special economic zones and provide training in those sectors,” said Xiangchen.His government would provide 50 technical experts in building and upgrading of industrial parks and new power plants, 200 000 industrial managers to train and develop local industrial managers, as well as 40 000 training opportunities in different sectors.October welcomed the pledge and praised China for its efforts to support the African cause.China had remained an inspiration to most developing countries, especially those in Africa, for the last forty years, he said. Even though the continent was underdeveloped, summits such as Focac could bring progress in industrialisation.The first Ministerial Conference of Focac was held in Beijing in October 2000. After that meeting, China cancelled 10.9-billion renminbi (about R23-billion today) of debts for 31 heavily indebted poor countries or least developed countries in Africa.Source: SouthAfrica.info reporterlast_img read more

Adobe Premiere Pro: Slip & Slide Video Editing

first_imgPremiere Pro gives you specific tools to finesse your edits.  The Slip & Slide is one tool that lets you adjust the timing of a clip.  In this post, we take a good look at when to slip and when to slide!In this post, we’ll take a look at two Premiere Pro video editing techniques that will make your edit to make your edits more precise and speed up your post production workflow: Slip and Slide!Performing a Slip Edit in PremiereA slip edit changes the timing, but not the length of a clip.  The footage will roll forward or backwards in the clips current duration.  In this way, it doesn’t effect the other clips in the Sequence like a Ripple Edit does.  Many editors will use a slip edit to complete a motion (let a character move in or out of frame) or match an action from one shot to the next.Im my example I have a clip of a guy shaving (from Digital Juice), and I want to him to complete the shaving motion with the shaver going out of frame.In the screenshot below you can see the current outpoint of the clip.There are 3 ways to perform a slip edit in Adobe Premiere Pro:Select the Slip tool (shortcut is Y) and click on the clip in the Sequence.  Now drag the cursor left or right to roll the clip forward or backward.Select the clip in the sequence.  On a Mac use the shortcut Option+Command+Left/Right Arrow to slip 1 frame.  Similarly, you can use Option+Shift+Command+Left/Right for 5 frames. The PC shortcuts are Alt+Shift+Left/Right and Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Left/Right, respectively.Slip in the Source Window. This method is my preferred way, as I feel it gives me more accurate control.  Clients are often specific about the frame, and this lets you pinpoint it easily.  In the following example we’ll use this method:Double click the clip in the Sequence to load it into the Source Window.  Put your playhead on the frame where the shaver goes out of frame.  Then move your cursor over the in/out grip, the textured area in the gray bar below.  A hand icon will appear.  Drag the in/out grip to your playhead to Slip the clip.As you drag the in/out grip you see a 2 up view showing you the beginning and end frames.This Premiere Pro editing trick will give you greater precision in your video edits.Performing a Slide EditIf you want a clip to occur earlier or later in a timeline/sequence you can use the Slide Edit.  As the name implies, the slide edit actually slides a clip up or down your Premiere Pro timeline.A Slide Edit looks at 3 clips, and slides the middle clip, with the other 2 clips changing in length to accommodate the clip being slid.  Like slip, it doesn’t effect the other clips in the sequence.There are 2 ways to perform a slide edit in Adobe Premiere Pro:Hit the shortcut “U” elect the Slide tool and click/drag on the clip in the Sequence. (shortcut is U)Use the shortcut  Opt+Shift+, (Comma) for 1 frame or Opt+Shift+. (Period) for 5 frames. The PC shortcuts are Alt+, (Comma) and Alt+Shift+, (Comma).In my example the middle clip is slid left, so the clip to the left shortens and the clip to the right gets longer (the clip being slid stays the same length).As always the Adobe Premiere Pro online help site is a great resource for additional information.BEFORE SLIDEAFTER SLIDElast_img read more

Nuggets beat Spurs to tie series at 2-2

first_imgTorrey Craig started over a struggling Will Barton and was charged with defending White to open the game along with Gary Harris, with Murray switching to Bryn Forbes. The moves proved beneficial, if not at first.“He’s a really good defender,” Jokic said about Craig. “He’s helping us on defensive rebounds. So, he helps in that part of the game, and his defense is really phenomenal. And when he’s making shots like tonight, it’s a great job by him.”White was limited to eight points on 3-for-8 shooting after going 15 for 21 on Thursday. Craig finished with 18 points, going 5 for 7 on 3-pointers. Barton finished with 12 points and made all three of his 3-point attempts.“They executed their game plan better,” White said. “We kind of helped them out by playing awful.”Down by 12 points in the first quarter, Denver outscored San Antonio 69-45 in the second and third.“We did a really good job defensively, that’s what won us the game,” Murray said. “In quarters two, three and four, we got our run because of our defense because we all collectively rebounded. It was just a collective effort that led to our offense.”San Antonio had 60 points in the pain, only two off its Game 3 total, but they had 11 fewer second-chance points and nine less Fastbreak points.TIP-INSNuggets: Denver’s last playoff victory in San Antonio was April 22, 2007.

Two held after Delhi woman gets injured while resisting snatching bid

first_imgNew Delhi: Two days after a 55-year-old woman was injured when she resisted a snatching bid, two men were arrested on Sunday in connection with the matter, police said. Those arrested were identified as Rahman (22), a resident of Raghuvir Nagar, and Ravi (22), a resident of Madipur. The third accused was yet to be arrested, police said. Urmila Bhambri was standing near Madipur Metro Station on Friday when three bike-borne men tried to snatch her handbag. In the struggle, the woman fell on the road and sustained minor injuries. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar The suspects fled from the spot, leaving the handbag behind, a senior police official said. A case was registered and multiple teams were deployed at various places in nearby areas during the early morning hours to nab the culprits, he said. The two men on motorcycle were intercepted by a police team at a picket near Madipur Metro Station on Sunday, following which they were signalled to stop. But instead of stopping, the duo tried to escape, the official said. However, the two were arrested after a brief chase, he said, adding that a loaded pistol and a stolen mobile phone was recovered from the accused’s possession. The motorcycle was found to be stolen from the vicinity of Maharaja Agrasen Hospital 15 days ago, police said. The two were involved in several other cases of robbery, snatching and theft, they added.last_img read more
