first_img Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar News News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts MyanmarAsia – Pacific RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum to go further September 20, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 During one month of protests, military government steps up propaganda, censorship and violence against journalists RSF_en May 26, 2021 Find out more The use of violence and censorship against Burmese journalists trying to cover the protests that began a month ago is a “detestable strategy” aimed at preventing them from doing their job, Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association said today. It has been accompanied by an increase in propaganda in the state and privately-owned media controlled by the military government.The two organisations are aware of at least 24 serious violations of the freedom to report news and information since 19 August. Police, soldiers, members of the USDA (a pro-government militia) and government censors have been responsible for these violations.Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association call on the members of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) to put pressure on the Burmese government to stop these serious abuses.Deprived of news from independent outlets, many Burmese listen to the Burmese-language services of international radio stations such as RFA, VOA, BBC and DVB and surreptitiously look at DVB TV’s weekly broadcasts.The government has meanwhile stepped up its propaganda in the media it controls. The protesters are portrayed as agitators bent on fomenting violence who have been mobilised by the opposition National League for Democracy and foreign governments. The pro-government media have also accused the foreign press of creating unrest.The censorship bureau has systematically rejected articles in which the protests against cost of living increases have been covered in an independent manner. Privately-owned media executives and editors have found themselves being ordered to publish articles favourable to the government and hostile to the internal and external “enemies.”No foreign journalist has obtained a visa to enter Burma since the start of the protests. The few foreign correspondents based in Rangoon work for the state-owned media of countries that support the military government. The Chinese news agency Xinhua, for example, has in the past month run only three dispatches on the protests, and they just gave the government’s version.Chronology of incidents:- 18 September: Three Burmese journalists covering a demonstration by monks in Rangoon were arrested and questioned by the police, and their equipment was taken. Two of them worked for Japanese media (Asahi TV and Kyoto News Agency). The third worked for The Voice Journal, a Burmese magazine. Only the Asahi TV reporter got his camera back, but without the memory card. Hla Htwe Aung told the Mizzima news agency it was hard to recover confiscated equipment as the police, soldiers and USDA militiamen were all in civilian dress.- 14 September: The front-page story in all the government newspapers was the military government’s generals taking offerings to several monasteries.- 12 September: The last telephone line at the Rangoon headquarters of Aung San Suu Kyi’s party, the National League for Democracy, was cut. The party’s leaders had often taken calls from the foreign press on the line.- 11 September: The service on the mobile phones of Agence France-Presse correspondent Hla Hla Htay and freelance journalist May Thingyan was cut. A few days later, the AFP management asked the authorities to restore the service.10 September: The telephones of 50 government opponents were disconnected to prevent them from talking to Burmese and foreign journalists.9 September: Members of the Directorate of Military Engineers moved into the governmental Office of Telecommunications on Bo Soon Pat Street in Rangoon. They put taps on the phone of around 50 prominent people, including opposition members Su Su Nway, Phyu Phyu Thinn, Htay Kywe, Hla Myo Naung and U Myint Thein.- 9 September: Privately-owned newspapers were forced to publish an official statement accusing Min Ko Naing and other Generation 88 activists of inciting a revolt.- 4 September: Love Journal (a privately-owned magazine run by Myat Khaing, who is known to have good relations with the information minister) published a long article headlined, “People who make mountains out of molehills using the petrol price rise.” Attacking the journalists covering the protests, it said: “Foreign news agency reporters are conspiring with the demonstrators to create instability in Burma.” – 3 September: Access to the video-sharing website YouTube was blocked. The country’s leading Internet Service Provider, which is controlled by the ministry of posts and telecommunications, gave no explanation for the ban. Another Burmese ISP, Bagan net, had already made YouTube inaccessible. The few videos of the protests to have emerged were shot by “citizen-journalists” who used video-sharing sites like YouTube to distribute them.- 28 August: A pro-NLD photojournalist, Win Saing, was arrested while trying to photograph NLD members making offerings to monks in Rangoon. He is reportedly still being held in Kyaik-ka-san detention centre.- 27 August: The press registration and surveillance department ordered news editors to restrict the publication of reports about consumer price hikes.- 27 August: The information minister, Gen. Kyaw San, told government media editors to be very careful about the kind of reports they disseminate.- 23 August: USDA members and police prevented journalists from getting near to a group of Rangoon street demonstrators. USDA thugs jostled and insulted journalists. A Reuters reporter was ordered not to take photos of arrests. Cameras were confiscated by police. – 22 August: Men in plain clothes manhandled an unidentified journalist as he was taking photos of public transport users waiting in line.- 20 August: The Rangoon military command banned journalists from taking photos of demonstrations and ordered that the cameras of those who disobeyed should be seized and destroyed.- 19 August: As soon as the first protests began, the Burmese correspondents of foreign news media reported being subjected to intimidation from plain-clothes police and USDA members. Circulating in army trucks and armed with spades and iron bars, they insulted and threatened journalists.

first_imgCliftonville skipper George McMullan has had nightmares about James Forrest since the Celtic winger gave him a hard time in the first leg of their Champions League second qualifier in Belfast last week. The Scotland wideman was in top form against the Northern Irish part-timers and scored the third goal in a convincing 3-0 win for the Scottish champions which means Tuesday night’s return leg in Glasgow should be a formality. Speaking at Celtic Park before Cliftonville’s training session on Monday night, McMullan said: “I am not the quickest so I have been having a few nightmares about him running past me. “We are here to try to frustrate Celtic and try to give a good account of ourselves. “But as an occasion we are looking forward to it. We know it is going to be a tough game. “Let’s put it into perspective, we are a part-time club. I feel we have the best players for our league but we are coming up against a team who were in the last-16 of the Champions League not so long ago. That’s what we are up against.” “We were hoping that playing against a part-time team that they wouldn’t be on their game but they were. “You watch Celtic year-in, year-out on television and they don’t look as quick as they are but once they get the ball down and get a turn of pace it is frightening. “And to be fair, their quality on the ball showed that it there is a gulf between our league and Celtic. “So I have nothing but admiration and respect for Celtic and the way they played. “And as much a nightmare as it was, it is actually good nightmares, ones I enjoy having.” Reds manager Tommy Breslin admits the game against Celtic is a damage-limitation exercise for his side who have been in Glasgow since Sunday. He said: “In reality it probably is (damage limitation). We are not going out to roll over. “I don’t want to be on the wrong end of a drubbing and that could be a possibility.

first_imgGarry Monk was pleased by the way Swansea not only managed to frustrate Southampton but leave St Mary’s with a first Premier League win of 2015. “The game plan was to concede a little bit of possession, to frustrate them to grow into the game, get into the hour mark. “Obviously then I knew they would push, the crowd would become frustrated and we would look to go and push for that first goal. “I think tactically we got it spot on today. That’s what you have to do. “I know better than anyone else at Swansea City, the amount of football we have played over the years, that you can’t always do it [the same style]. “There are certain circumstances, certain periods of time, when you have to adapt and be able to change. I think we showed that today was fantastic.” Monk heaped praise on match-winner Shelvey and captain Ashley Williams in the post-match press conference, while he downplayed a touchline spat with Ryan Bertrand. The Saints left-back clashed with the Swansea bench after a lunge on Modou Barrow, which saw him sent off by referee Michael Oliver in the dying minutes. “I thought it was a bad tackle, but I was more appealing because knew it was a free-kick,” Monk said. “Whether it was a red card, I’m not sure. I appealed for the free-kick as I think he felt he’d won the ball. “I just said ‘how do you think you can win that ball from the side or behind?’ There’s no problems whatsoever.” Monk says Barrow received a blow to the back of the knee but is fine after a challenge Southampton counterpart Ronald Koeman did not think was worthy of a sending off. “In my opinion, it is not a red card,” the Dutchman said. “These fouls in my opinion is yellow. It’s not a red card.” Bertrand will now miss the next three matches through suspension, increasing the number of absentees Saints are having to deal with right now. Such issues, along with the departure of Jack Cork to Swansea, means Koeman will be active on transfer deadline day, with his key targets Benfica’s Filip Djuricic and Tonny Vilhena at former club Feyenoord. “We have one day more,” he said. “We will see. I expect something, yes.” Press Association “I am happy with the three points after what has been a difficult month for us for various reasons,” Monk said. “We have lost players, had injuries, players away on international duty and suspensions. “It has been difficult for us but I talked in the week about getting back to basics. “We came here with a game plan and I thought we executed that game plan very well. “And what a goal – a fantastic strike from Jonjo which deserved to win any game. “I thought we were good for the three points, especially in the second half. “We came to frustrate them a little bit and in the second half we knew that if we used the ball a little better we’d get our chances and so it proved.” This was certainly not the free-flowing Swansea onlookers have become accustomed to, with the players instead displaying a dogged, battling side. “I knew coming here against a very good side – they’re in the Champions League spots, don’t forget that – who have had a fantastic season,” Monk said of his former club. Arriving on the south coast without a top-flight victory since Boxing Day, few expected their rotten recent form to improve in Sunday’s late kick-off. However, Swansea managed to frustrate the hosts, with a resolute defence and dollop of luck allowing them to eke out a 1-0 win, courtesy of Jonjo Shelvey’s fine, late strike. last_img read more

first_imgThis past weekend, Project: Possibility, together with the on-campus Association for Computing Machinery, hosted the “SS12 Hackathon: Code for a Cause.”Techies · (From left to right): Undeclared sophomore Bryan Chong; sophomore Brian Chen, majoring in computer science games and freshman William Yeh, majoring in computer science work on their new software app. – Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanDuring the hackathon, undergraduates and graduates developed software projects for disabled persons.Project: Possibility, a national nonprofit organization, creates software for persons with disabilities. The ACM, a worldwide computing society, serves the computing professional field’s library and research resources. The SS12 raises awareness about issues in accessible computing.A hackathon does not mean hacking a system — it’s creating something people can use. In the course of a weekend, students can learn a semester’s worth of programming.“This hackathon, I’m looking forward to helping out my teammates in how to code,” said Ryan Choi, a junior majoring in chemical engineering and nanotechnology. “I’ve learned how to do a lot and I’m looking forward to sharing that experience.”Wilson Yeh, a freshman majoring in computer science, was excited to be able to give back through his participating in the hackathon.“It feels really good when everything runs fine and you can say, ‘I made this,’” Yeh said.SS12 has been held both at USC and at the University of California, Los Angeles through Project: Possibility and the universities’ local organizations, including ACM. In the past, competition winners have created works such as a Braille keyboard for mobile devices and voice-operated chess, according to the SS12.The hackathon began Friday with a kickoff and introduction. Hackathon participants were allowed 48 hours to create a viable product.Over the weekend, students worked in Leavey Library, Taper Hall and Grace Ford Salvatori Hall. With breaks only for meals, students coded from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. on Saturday. Some worked through the night up until Sunday afternoon. On Sunday, the students presented projects to judges at 6 p.m. in eight-minute demonstrations.Students in one group programmed what happens on each screen of an Android application that allows the visually impaired to play Battleship. They tried to accommodate for unexpected errors in their design, emphasizing large buttons, motion sensor movements and automatic voice response.“We created a small benefit,” Choi said. “There are not a lot of gaming options for visually impaired people. Most games involve or require visually responsive actions. We’re creating another avenue for gamers.”Another group created an application for the elderly that detects when a person falls. The projects were geared toward making existing software accessible.The SS12 empowered students to make a difference through developing software technology.“[The hackathon competition] makes us realize that when you learn to code, there’s more to it than just technical details,” said Douglass Chen, a sophomore majoring in computer engineering and computer science. “You have to put yourselves in their shoes and think about how it changes their lives. There’s a lot of human connection when you do these kinds of contests.”ACM awarded several prizes including Logitech software, an LG television screen, a Scrabble board game, a Comfort Curve 3000 keyboard and other miscellaneous items. USC’s winning team will take a trip to the San Diego Annual International Technology and Persons with Disabilities Conference to compete in the United States SS12 Finals with teams from  UCLA and California State University, Northridge.In the future, ACM president Christina Chu hopes to get more beginner programmers to participate in the hackathon.“We really want to encourage [the hackathon] for newbies and beginners, it may seem really intimidating [at first], to sit down and actually try it, that’s what we’re trying to get people to do,” Chu said.last_img read more

first_img27 June 2014 The government has set itself the target of procuring 75% of goods and services from South African producers as part of its drive to create a new class of black industrialists and entrepreneurs, says Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa. This target was ambitious but “eminently achievable,” Ramaphosa said during the gala dinner of the Black Business Council (BBC) in Johannesburg on Thursday evening, adding: “We are quite literally building the nation.” The Deputy President said the government’s drive for radical economic transformation had to ensure “faster, inclusive growth, combined with much higher levels of employment creation, reduced inequality and the deracialisation of the economy”.Support for local suppliers A critical part of this programme, he said, was the government’s massive strategic investment in infrastructure, which aimed to promote broad-based black economic empowerment through support for local suppliers and contractors. “A lack of diversification and growth in the productive sectors of our economy has in the main contributed towards the de-industrialisation of our economy over the past 30 years. “We will need to focus on marketing and supply activities to enable small scale producers to enter formal value chains and take advantage of economies of scale.” Ramaphosa said successful black entrepreneurs and industrialists would require broader access to financial services to fund growth in existing and new sectors. “We can no longer ignore poor lending practices and excessive charges in some parts of the financial sector, and the lack of more inclusive and accessible financing opportunities. “Through our development finance institutions, we will provide increased access to affordable lending that supports diversification of the economy, broad-based black economic empowerment, and investment in smaller businesses in the productive economy.”‘Black business must lead’ However, radical economic transformation also needed partnerships, Ramaphosa said, adding that black business had a key role to play in identifying where needs existed and in developing proposals on how to address these needs. “Black business must lead. It must develop strategies, working with government, labour and the rest of the business community, to train tens of thousands of engineers, actuaries, accountants, teachers, doctors and project managers. “Black business must look at how emerging entrepreneurs can be financed, supported and provided with market access. Our developmental state needs partners in the business community who supports the vision of a racially integrated industrial economy.” Ramaphosa urged the council to join with the government in developing mechanisms that supported meaningful transformation and greater equality in the workplace. “Government is prepared to do its part by fostering an environment for growth and investment through the development of adequate infrastructure, provision of services such as energy, and water, mobilisation of industrial financing, consistency and certainty in regulation, removal of unnecessary burdens for business and the improvement of our skills base.” He said the country needed a dynamic and entrepreneurial class of black industrialists. “We need people who will take a long-term perspective, roll up their sleeves and drive the development of our productive capabilities from the shop floor up. “As a nation, we are looking to black business in particular to take this country forward. It needs to be an active agent in the implementation of the National Development Plan. It needs to be a driver in its own right of radical socio-economic change.”‘This will be a toyi-toyi of a special type’ Small Business Development Minister Lindiwe Zulu, also speaking at the dinner, said the time had come for black South Africans “to fight for what they should have been enjoying for a very long time. “This will be a toyi-toyi of a special type, because the toyi-toyi that we’ve been seeing of late is the reflection of the energy that is directed to burning schools and libraries. Now, we need to turn that energy into a better energy that is contributing to a better South Africa.” Zulu said the government was fully aware of all the challenges faced by small business in the country, and was ready to partner with small businesses to help them benefit from the opportunities available. At the same time, South Africans needed to “ask what they can do for themselves, to ensure that they contribute positively to their respective communities”. With the amount of government support available, she said, there was no reason for small businesses in South Africa not to prosper. “Small business on the African continent operates under difficult circumstances. Many of them don’t have the institutions that South Africa has. Many of them do not have the financial support that we have. But they are thriving.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

first_imgThe Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology City-jumping, history-loving, smartphone-toting nerds are getting a fun new tool for Android and iOS today. Location discovery app It Happened Here has updated its catalogue today to bring rich information to users in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco. It Happened Here shows users interesting factoids about locations close to them. Kicking it in Georgetown in D.C. and want to see the infamous stairs that Father Karras threw himself down at the end of The Exorcist? The app uses Google Maps and will show a pin with your location and a pin for the nearest events around you. Just follow the map on your phone and you will soon find yourself standing at the bottom of the steps of cinematic lore.With a degree in history and the natural curiosity of a journalist, I often times feel that I am not getting the most out of a city when I travel. I know there are supposed to be cool things around, but I am just not sure what they are. This is even more true since I live in the D.C. area, a region with its fair share of interesting history. Playing with It Happened Here I get a good snapshot of sites to visit based on where I am standing. The app is kind of like having a location-aware guidebook in your pocket. Legacy guidebooks like Frommer’s have iPhone apps but they are nowhere near as intuitive as It Happened Here or Plnnr. For instance, the Frommer’s app provides a tip calculator, currency converter and time translator but is not location-aware and the purpose of the app is to get users to download Frommer’s city guides from the app store.Plnnr is an interesting application in the location-discovery arena but, as the name suggests, it is more about planning a trip than learning the history around you. Plnnr is a tool that can help you create and track an itinerary to degrees of minutiae. That is the opposite of It Happened Here, which is probably better for more serendipitous discovery than for planning a trek around a city.One drawback of It Happened Here is that you have to purchase cities one at a time. The initial download is $2.99 with each additional city costing the same.
