Repeal the RPPO 2002 ordinances restricting the editorial freedom of the print media which were also adopted last November.2. Reform the operational methods of the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA), which is currently run by former police officers. The PEMRA must grant terrestrial broadcast licences to independent TV stations, guarantee the editorial independence of TV and radio stations and stop harassing cable TV operators.3. Release imprisoned journalists Rehmat Shah Afridi, the former editor of the Frontier Post newspaper, and Munir Mengal, one of the initiators of the Baloch Voice TV station. Two other journalists from Balochistan are missing and the reasons for their abduction are unknown. It is important to locate them and ensure that their rights as citizens are respected.4. Introduce training for the police, army and the intelligence agencies (including the ISI) on the importance of the work of the media, in order to avoid further violence against journalists, especially during demonstrations. At least 30 journalists were seriously injured in 2007 and more that 120 were arrested.5. Award financial compensation to journalists who have been arbitrarily detained, beaten or otherwise harassed by the security forces and to the families of those who were killed in 2007 and early 2008.6. Provide for the protection of news media that are threatened by terrorist groups.7. Withdraw all the unjustified complaints and lawsuits brought by the police and government against dozens of journalists and free speech activists in recent years.8. Combat impunity by creating a Task Force to investigate the murders of journalists that have taken place in recent years. Six journalists were killed in 2007 without any of these murders being solved. Pakistan has become the most dangerous country for journalists in Asia.9. Release the report of the investigation into the kidnapping and murder of Tribal Areas journalist Hayatullah Khan in 2006.10. Turn state-owned PTV into an independent public television service. Monitoring of PTV’s broadcasts by Reporters Without Borders during the elections showed a clear bias in favour of the ruling party.”Both the repressive policies of the previous governments and terrorist actions have resulted in a very disturbing deterioration in the situation of press freedom,” the letter says. “Pakistan was ranked 152nd out of 169 countries in the 2007 world press freedom index compiled by Reporters Without Borders.”The letter concludes: “We are aware that the task you face is enormous, but we hope that your convictions will lead you to make it a priority to strengthen press freedom. Our organisation also hopes that you will give your personal attention to these matters and that you will encourage your government to consolidate a climate in which journalists can work freely and without fear.” to go further Receive email alerts PakistanAsia – Pacific June 2, 2021 Find out more April 21, 2021 Find out more Pakistani supreme court acquits main suspect in Daniel Pearl murder Pakistani journalist critical of the military wounded by gunfire PakistanAsia – Pacific last_img read more

AFCON: Egypt salutes team ‘dignity’ after agonising loss

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Mohamed Elneny had given Egypt the leadCairo, Egypt | AFP | The Egyptian president and newspapers applauded the “dignity” of the national football team on Monday, calling them champions despite agonisingly losing the Africa Cup of Nations final 2-1 to Cameroon.Arsenal midfielder Mohamed Elneny gave Egypt the lead midway through the first half on Sunday and they looked to be on course to win an unrivalled eighth Cup of Nations crown in their first appearance at the tournament since 2010.But Cameroon hit back and Vincent Aboubakar came off the bench to score a stunning winner with two minutes left to break Egyptian hearts.“We have lost with dignity” read the headline of the privately owned Al-Shorouk newspaper.“The Pharaohs have lost 2-1 in the finals after a dignified performance,” said the state-owned Al-Akhbar newspaper.The private Al-Watan newspaper chimed: “The cup was lost but we won the national team.”“You have honoured us, champions… We’ll meet at the World Cup,” the privately owned Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper added.President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi expressed his “great appreciation” to the players on their “dignified performance” in Gabon.“Despite the result of the game the national team has won the appreciation of the entire Egyptian people and the respect of all football fans around the world,” Sisi said in a statement. On Monday afternoon Sisi went to the airport to personally welcome back the players, shaking hands with them one by one, according to footage broadcast on state television.Sunday’s narrow defeat was a disappointing ending for thousands of fanatical Egyptians gathered in front of massive screens in the 6 October suburb in western Cairo, as they did all over the country, blowing Vuvuzelas and waving Egyptian flags.The Vuvuzela horns fell silent at the final whistle.“I’m in shock,” said 30-year-old engineer Ayman Abou el-Nour, who was watching the game with his wife and two children.“We needed something to bring us happiness. Our problem now is that we don’t have anything to make us happy.”Egyptians, grappling with skyrocketing prices and political turmoil, hope next year’s World Cup will offer some more respite.“We have lost the cup but we still have a chance to reach the World Cup. That is the big dream,” said 20-year-old student Ahmed Alaa.last_img read more

Theology Affects Society

first_imgOne’s beliefs about God affect everything from criminal justice to personal hope.Unsurprisingly, if you believe that evil is real you will be more likely to support harsh punishments for evildoers. This is a “finding” by psychologists from Kansas State University, according to Science Daily.People who believe in pure evil are more likely support sentences such as life in prison without parole and the death penalty for criminals, a psychology study finds. The researchers added that it’s likely that life experience more than religion that [sic] influences a belief in pure evil. When investigating whether a religious upbringing was linked to a belief in pure evil, researchers found that people’s belief in pure evil didn’t necessitate a belief in pure good and vice versa.“Religious upbringing” is a subjective factor, since “religion” is so broad, spanning everything from liberal to conservative, Jewish, Catholic, Protestant, Muslim, cults, and the church of Satan. Nevertheless, if everyone has a conscience with an innate knowledge of good and evil, it makes sense that a belief in “pure evil” reinforced by experience from news about mass murderers would be common among all people, regardless of religious upbringing.In evolutionary terms, evil does not really exist. Society evolves with cooperators and cheaters, neither of which can be classed as morally good or bad (2/08/15), because if the cheaters grow to outnumber the cooperators, the roles reverse. Consequently, materialists and Darwinists have historically been prone to be lenient with criminals. John West documents this in his chapters on criminal justice in Darwin Day in America. In chapter 3, he recounts the case in 1924 where Clarence Darrow defended Leopold and Loeb, two wanton murderers, on the grounds that natural selection made them the way they are. This is just an introduction to numerous other cases West documents that excused crime on Darwinian grounds.The Spring of HopeWhat gives a person steadfast hope when facing death? It’s not self-esteem, but rather belief in an afterlife, psychologists from the University of Kent found. Science Daily says that four studies reinforced the conclusion that belief in an afterlife is most likely to give a person hope when thinking about death.The research was based on the premise that self-awareness among humans has been shown to create the potential for hope — or the general expectation and feeling that future desired outcomes will occur.Paradoxically however, this self-awareness, which is thought to be unique to humans, also renders them conscious of their own mortality — known as mortality salience. The psychologists found that mortality salience affected feelings of hope among people with high and low self-esteem in different ways.Researchers first established that mortality reduced personal hope for people low in self-esteem, but not for people high in self-esteem. However, afterlife beliefs helped to preserve hope, even among those with low esteem who experience hopelessness when faced with the prospect of their own mortality.As with most psychology studies, the reliability of the findings is dubious. For one, it relies on self-reporting of individuals who are complex, dynamic, and untrustworthy; e.g., some might be tempted to report their feelings differently in clinical situations, or might feel differently depending on what they ate or how much sleep they got. For another, terms like “self-esteem” are subjective and poorly constrained. For another, the psychologists lied to some of the participants:In two studies, the team tested to see if ‘immortality’ would help people with low self-esteem remain hopeful when thinking about death. In one, half the participants read a (bogus) statement indicating that scientists are convinced that there is life after death or a statement arguing that there is no life after death.In the second, the researchers required that people read either a (bogus) statement that there was an identified gene that promises greatly elongated life, or a statement arguing that no such gene has been identified.Both promises of immortality (life after death or elongated life on earth) preserved hope for people with low self-esteem when they had just thought about their own death.If the participants discovered that the researchers lied to them, and thought lying was pure evil, would they have recommended harsh punishments for the psychologists? The most interesting statement in the article is that “self-awareness” is “thought to be unique to humans.” Where did that come from, if not from the image of God?These kinds of studies are backwards. The participants should have been interviewing the psychologists and showing them up to be frauds. In the first study, a perceptive participant could have asked: “What do you mean by ‘religious upbringing’? Does that include growing up in the church of Satan or in a jihadi group? Do you yourself believe in pure evil? If not, why not? If you don’t believe in evil, do you believe in pure good? Do those things evolve, or are they real? If you deny the existence of absolute morality, why should I trust that you are trying to do any good right now in performing this interview? You need to get your heart right before trying to call this a scientific research project. Go read the Bible and learn something about morality before asking me anything about it.”For the second study, the participant should have responded, “What do you mean by afterlife? Are you including suicide bombing to get 70 virgins in some kind of Muslim heaven? Are you including Nirvana, a senseless, impersonal nothingness? Are you talking about reincarnation? Do you, sir or madam, believe in an afterlife where you retain your identity, and where good and evil are rewarded and punished? If not, why are you trying to do a scientific experiment? If all your efforts end at death, what’s the point? Go read the Bible and learn something about immortality before trying to tell me whether it’s useful in providing hope.”(Visited 14 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Hunter stars in inaugural Mzansi Tour

first_img“They rode themselves out of their skins to make sure that they can help me as much as they can.” South African cycling star Robert Hunter, riding for the South African National Team, claimed an impressive victory in the inaugural Mzansi Tour, which finished at Montecasino in Johannesburg on Sunday. Stage Five Results Fedgroup-Itec claimed the Team Classification, with La Pomme Marseille in second and Team Nippo-De Rosa in third. “I feel really good. I’m happy to have won this tour because it’s been a great week of racing and I’m happy with how it has turned out,” Hunter told the South African Press Association (Sapa) after securing the title. WinnersApart from his victory in the general classification, Hunter also won the points’ classification and the best African rider’s title. Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material General Classification Hunter kept up the pressure throughout and ultimately finished the race five minutes and 56 seconds ahead of second-placed Julien Antomarchi. His win in the general classification was built upon a superb solo effort in the second stage – at 189 kilometres, the longest of the race – which left him almost six minutes clear of the second placed rider. 22 April 2013 Third stageThe weekend began well for Team Nippo-De Rosa’s Mauro Richeze, who claimed the 149 kilometre third stage win from Witbank to Mamelodi on Friday, after a sprint finish. “I’m really proud with how my South African team has performed after we came here as the underdogs. It was a tightly contested stage, with only 20 seconds separating the first 55 riders. He crossed the finishing line in three hours, 19 minutes and 51 seconds, edging out Germany’s Lucas Liss of Rad-Net Rose and South African track ace Nolan Hoffman of Tasol-GT for the honours. Fourth stageOn Saturday, the fourth stage covered 145 kilometres from Hartbeespoort to the Union Buildings. At least it was supposed to do so, but a late route change was necessary after the Tshwane Metro Police failed to provide sufficient support for the route through Pretoria; Tanya Harford, one of the directors of Echelon Events, said the Police had not honoured a contract they had signed. Argentina’s Richeze rose to the occasion once again, sneaking ahead of Hunter right on the line to take the stage win in four hours, two minutes and 43 seconds, while Nolan Hoffman placed third. Antomarchi was the only man apart from Hunter to wear the leader’s yellow jersey in the race, after edging out the South African ace for victory on the first stage. 1.

Sony’s Streaming Music Service Goes Live in the U.S.

first_imgSony joins a number of music streaming services today with its launch of “Music Unlimited powered by Qriocity.” The service has been available in parts of Europe since last year, and arrives in the U.S., Australia, and New Zealand today.Membership will start at $3.99 a month, with a $9.99 per month subscription that will give you on-demand access to the Music Unlimited catalog and with the ability to suggest music you might like based on the songs you already own or listen to. The service boasts more than 6 million songs, giving Sony Music Entertainment and its partners in the endeavor – Universal Music Group, EMI Music and Warner Music Group Corp – the ability to sell directly to customers.The streaming service is currently only compatible on Sony-specific devices like the PS3, Blu-ray players, Sony Bravia TVs, and VAIO laptops. There are plans, says Sony, to offer it on mobile devices later this year.Streaming Subscription Service (But Not for iOS)These features of the new service all point to the current landscape of the music business – the increasing popularity of subscription services (such as MOG, Rhaposdy, and Rdio), for example, and the continuing struggles of the record industry to adapt to (declining) digital music sales. But the launch of Music Unlimited also comes on the heels of Apple’s announcement this week of its new subscription service, and the news that Apple would start to charge a 30% commission for purchases made within an iOS app. The news comes as Apple tries to gain more control over content bought and sold via apps on its platform, something that made Sony’s proposed Reader app run afoul of the new rules and fail to be accepted into the store.There were rumors earlier this week that Sony was planning on removing its music from iTunes in response to Apple, although Sony Network Entertainment COO Brandon insists that’s not the case. Nonetheless, it’s also noteworthy that Sony’s new service isn’t available on mobile devices – interesting since streaming-on-the-go is part of the benefits of streaming your music. 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… audrey watters 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Tags:#music#NYT#web Related Posts 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…last_img read more
