Pro-Maoist journalist killed

first_img News News to go further NepalAsia – Pacific RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières) today condemned the killing of pro-Maoist journalist Binod Sajana Chaudhary on 27 September in western Nepal, noting that initial reports suggested he was summarily executed by security forces.In a letter to Prime Minister Surya Bahadur Thapa, the organisation called on the government to establish the circumstances of his death and stressed that such behaviour by the security forces could in no way be justified by the fact that he used to write for a Maoist newspaper. Journalists are protected by the Geneva Conventions in wartime, like the rest of the civilian population, the organisation said.At the time of his death, Chaudhary was a contributor to the weekly Nepalgunj Express in the western district of Kailali. He used to write for the Maoist weekly Janadesh, which no longer exists.Chaudhary was reported shot dead at point-blank range along with a Maoist activist. The daily Nepal Samacharpatra quoted Maoist rebel sources as alleging that he was shot by members of the security forces in civilian dress after showing his identity card. He had been on his way on Kegaun in search of information at the time. The Maoist sources said he was not armed.Local security sources told the press that Chaudhary and the Maoist activist were killed in an armed clash.Maoist rebels killed Gyanendra Khadka, a journalist with the government news agency RSS, in the Sindhupalchok district northeast of Kathmandu on 7 September by slitting his throat.

The Bench led by CJI SA Bobde however expressed dissatisfaction at the manner in which the farmers unions had cast unnecessary aspersions on the Committee members and said that the Supreme Court does not appreciate branding people like this. “If you don’ want to appear before the committee, we cannot compel you. But you cannot malign people like this and cast aspersions on them and also the court. If you don’t want to appear, don’t appear. Why do you need to brand people like this? How can you play with people’s reputation like this? We have serious objections in they being called biased and in saying court was having an interest. You malign people according to majority opinion?,” the CJI sternly remarked on Wednesday. Delete CJI : Every judge and lawyer have expressed some views in past and are doing something different now. Does it not happen that people change their opinions after hearing contradictory point of view? Men of integrity do that.#FarmersProtests #FarmLaws— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) January 20, 2021 He observed that the Committee members are experts in the field of agriculture and merely because they have expressed opinions in different context doesn’t amount to their disqualification. “Expressing opinions in different context doesn’t mean disqualification…Branding people like this, we don’t appreciate. Even judges express views during hearing. That doesn’t mean they can’t decide,” the CJI remarked. The observation resonates with the remarks made by the CJI yesterday, while hearing the suo moto matter on steps to expedite criminal trial. Just Because A Person Has Expressed Views On A Matter, It Does Not Disqualify Him From Being A Member Of A Committee: CJI Bobde “Just because a person has expressed a view on the matter, that is not a disqualification to be a member of a Committee…Committee members are not judges. They can change their views,” the CJI had orally observed while suggesting names for amicus curiae in the matter. The 4-members’ Committee constituted by the Top Court to resolve the deadlock between the Central Government and the farmers, comprises members who have expressed open views in support of implementation of the farm laws. While hearing an application filed by the Bhartiya Kisan Union Lokshakti and Kisan Mahapanchayat for the Committee’s re-constitution, the CJI said, “The basis of your application is that all four people are disqualified. How do you come to that conclusion? They are brilliant minds in the field of agriculture. They are experts. How do you malign them coz they have expressed some views in the past?Every judge and lawyer have expressed some views in past and are doing something different now. Does it not happen that people change their opinions after hearing contradictory point of view? Men of integrity do that.We don’t understand this. The Supreme Court appoints a committee and their reputation is torn to shreds!” The CJI clarified that the Committee has not been given powers to adjudicate and is appointed only to assist the Court. “Committee was asked to listen to protesters and give us a report. Where is the question of bias in that?,” the CJI asked rhetorically.He added,”The Court appointed a Committee of experts in field of agriculture with a clear purpose to listen to grievances of parties affected by the impugned laws with reference to the provisions enacted therein. Adjudicatory powers have not been conferred on the Committee. The Committee’s role is to share grievances of parties affected by the impugned legislation and make a report to the Court.” Soon after the CJI announced the names of Committee members to resolve the farmers’ dispute last week, many persons pointed out in social media that the composition of the committee reflects only a single view which is in support of the laws. Following the controversy, S. Bhupinder Singh Mann, Ex MP and National President of BKU and Chairman of All India Kisan Coordination Committee recused himself from the committee. “As a farmer myself and a Union leader, in view of the prevailing sentiments and apprehensions amongst the farm unions and the public in general, I am ready to any position offered or given to me so as to not to compromise the interest of Punjab and farmers of the Country, I am recusing myself from the Committee and I willalways stand with my framers and Punjab”, he said in a statement. The Bhartiya Kisan Union Lokshakti has moved the Supreme Court seeking to remove the remaining three members of the Committee. It submitted that the present constitution of the Committee vitiates the principle of natural justice as it has been conveyed by all four members in public domain that they support the farm laws. Further, in light of Bhupinder Singh Mann, ex-MP and National President of BKU, recusing himself from the Committee, there exists a burden on the other three members to stand down as well. The Supreme Court on Tuesday (January 12) stayed the operation of Three Farm Laws untill further Orders and constituted a Committee comprising Bhupinder Singh Mann, Pramod Kumar Joshi, Ashok Gulati, Anil Ghanwant for the ‘purpose of listening to the grievances of farmers relating to the farm laws and views of the government to make recommendations’. “We believe in the Committee and we are going to constitute it. This Committee will be the part of judicial proceedings”, the Top Court had said.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Next Storylast_img read more

Brundidge UMC celebrates 150 year anniversary

first_imgLatest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Email the author The present church building was constructed in 1919 but the church was not dedicated until 10 years later when the church was paid for.The church was built on the Akron Plan that was popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was first used in 1872 at the First Methodist Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio.Churches built on the Akron Plan have a rotunda surrounded by connecting Sunday school classrooms on one or two levels. The plan initially promoted efficiency of movement between Sunday school and worship services. But most of the existing churches built on the Akron Plan have expanded to include Sunday school building, fellowship hall and offices.Lawler said the Akron Plan was popular for two main reasons, Book Nook to reopen By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Brundidge UMC celebrates 150 year anniversary Print Article Sponsored Content Skip “Churches built on the Akron Plan had curved seating, which brought the congregation closer to the altar and made it more convenient for communion,” he said. “The plan was also a cost-saving measure in that the sanctuary and Sunday school classrooms were contained in one building. Many of the churches had a balcony and that extra height made them cooler during hot weather.”Sara Bowden, a lifelong member of BUMC, attended Sunday school on the second level of the church.“Mr. Perry Owens was the church treasurer and he would come around and take our collection, put it in his pocket and go off somewhere and count it,” Bowden said. “The younger children had Sunday school down in the fellowship hall and Mrs. Wood would play the piano for the general assembly and then the children would go to their classes in the fellowship hall.”There was a physical closeness in the churches built on the Akron Plan and, although, BUMC now has a Sunday school wing, a spiritual closeness exists among the members of the church, which had a spiritual existence in Brundidge before Brundidge was a town, Lawler said. Published 11:00 pm Wednesday, October 31, 2012 Lawler said a church building was constructed in 1856 and circuit riders and lay leaders held services in the church at different times.“But it was not until 1862, that a fulltime pastor was assigned to the Methodist church in Brundidge,” Lawler said. “The first resident pastor for the Methodists in Brundidge was the Rev. Anthony Seale Dickenson, a charter member of the Alabama Conference. He was appointed in 1861-62 and again in 1864 and 1868.”Dickinson was the great-grandfather of Betty Dickinson Hixon, a church member whose family has been in the church for six generations. The Dickert family (Don) has also had a continuous presence in BUMC for six generations. By The Penny Hoarder Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Rev.

Adopted woman reunites biological parents after 50 years

first_imgCourtesy of Laura MabryBy ERIC NOLL and HALEY YAMADA, ABC News(SPRINGDALE, Ark.) — One woman’s journey to uncover her past led to a future for two reunited high school sweethearts.Laura Mabry of Springdale, Arkansas, was adopted by Wayne and Darline Montgomery in 1968.At 52 years old, she decided that she wanted to learn more about her biological parents. In 2019, she took a DNA test and was able to track down her biological mother, Donna Horn.“We started communicating by text and email,” Mabry said. “She said, ‘Are you interested in knowing who your father is?’ I was like ‘Of course I am!’”Horn told Mabry that she and Mabry’s biological father, Joe Cougill, were high school sweethearts in Indiana who got pregnant at a young age and decided on adoption.After tracking down her father, Mabry put Horn and Cougill in touch again.“I gave him her phone number, and they started to talk immediately, and they just immediately bonded because, you know, he was divorced and her husband had passed away,” Mabry said. “So they were both single. And they immediately started talking, and I mean that was just that.”Last May, half a century after the two were separated, Horn and Cougill were married.“This has fulfilled something in my life that even I didn’t realize I needed so much,” Mabry told “World News Tonight.”Mabry said that their love story has shaped her into the person she is today.“I think that’s been a key part of just knowing my history, [their story] has been so important in my life,” she said. “That helped complete my whole identity, which has been great.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Holocene break-up and reestablishment of the Petermann Ice Tongue, Northwest Greenland

first_imgOver the last decade, two major calving events of the Petermann Ice Tongue in Northwest Greenland have led to speculation on its future stability and contribution to further Greenland Ice Sheet mass loss. However, it has been unclear if these events are anomalous or typical within the context of limited historical observations. We extend the historical record of the floating ice tongue using the stratigraphy of Petermann Fjord sediments to provide a longer-term perspective. Computed tomography (CT) scans, X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) scans, Ice-Rafted Debris (IRD) counts, and the magnetic properties of specific particle size fractions constrain changes in depositional processes and sediment sources at our core sites, allowing for reconstructions of past behavior of the Petermann Ice Tongue. Radiocarbon dating of foraminifera, 210Pb, and paleomagnetic secular variation (PSV) provide age control and help to address uncertainties in radiocarbon reservoir ages. A floating ice tongue in Petermann Fjord formed in late glacial time as Petermann Glacier retreated from an advanced grounded position. This paleo-ice tongue broke-up during the early Holocene when high northern latitude summer insolation was higher than present. After gradual regrowth of the ice tongue associated with regional cooling, the ice tongue reached its historical extent only within the last millennium. Little or no ice tongue was present for nearly 5000 years during the middle Holocene, when decadal mean regional temperatures are estimated to be 0.8e2.9 °C higher than preindustrial (1750 CE) and seasonal sea-ice in the Lincoln Sea was reduced. This pre-historical behavior shows that recent anthropogenic warming may already be in the range of ice tongue instability and future projected warming increases the risk of ice tongue break-up by the mid- 21st Century.last_img read more

HMS Protector Sails Home to Plymouth
