Three Mother Nature Cambodia reporters arrested for “inciting crime”

first_img Receive email alerts Alternative media Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate and unconditional release of three Cambodian journalists-cum-environmental activists who were arrested nearly a month ago in connection with their coverage of the partial destruction of a lake in a suburb of the capital, Phnom Penh. Mother Nature Cambodia emerged as an alternative media outlet combining journalism and activism in 2012, when it published the findings of its investigation into the large-scale logging of rare woods by the state and by powerful businessmen linked to the regime’s leadership – a business worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Organisation Cambodia is ranked 144th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Their crime was investigating the decision to fill in part of Lake Boeung Tamok. In a video that has since been rendered inaccessible, Mother Nature Cambodia reported that the defence ministry is going to fill in 300 hectares of the lake in order to build a military base, with disastrous consequences for the environment. to go further Two members of Mother Nature Cambodia, Dem Kundy and Hun Vannak, were already arrested on the same charge of inciting crime in September 2017, when they were doing a report on illegal trafficking in sand and were caught filming barges delivering vast amounts of newly extracted sand to an international cargo ship. To mark “Earth Overshoot Day” on 22 August, RSF published alarming statistics about journalists who cover environmental stories. At least ten have been killed worldwide in the past five years, while more than 50 press freedom violations linked to environment journalism have been tallied during the same period.

News News Follow the news on Cambodia “In a country like Cambodia, where the government has applied itself to eliminating all independent media in the past three years, organizations such as Mother Nature Cambodia are now taking on the role of providing freely-reported and reliable information,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. “The arrest of three of its investigators is the latest step in the Hun Sen administration’s progression from bad to worse, towards a society with totalitarian overtones. They must be freed at once.” News Help by sharing this information Google experiments drop Australian media from search results RSF_en News January 21, 2021 Find out more RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” February 24, 2021 Find out more Long Kunthea, Phuon Keoreaksmey and Thon Ratha, who work for the environmental website Mother Nature Cambodia, were arrested on 3 September and were placed in pre-trial detention three days later on a charge of “incitement to commit a felony or cause social unrest.” CambodiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses EnvironmentCitizen-journalistsJudicial harassment September 30, 2020 Three Mother Nature Cambodia reporters arrested for “inciting crime” CambodiaAsia – Pacific Condemning abuses EnvironmentCitizen-journalistsJudicial harassment Cambodian journalist gets 20 months in jail for livestream December 28, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

London’s Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Hospital Trust is launching a recruitmentcampaign targeting local people. Tim Higginson, director of personnel, told Personnel Today that over thenext few weeks posters will appear at local bus stops highlighting vacancies atall levels and reminding people the hospital is only a bus ride away. Advertswill also run on local radio and appear in community papers. Through the campaign the trust hopes to attract people wanting to return topractice, as well as staff for non-specific roles. Higginson said fostering links with the community is important and the trustalready runs mentoring programmes at schools and encourages staff to take upschool governor roles and voluntary positions in the area. “We aim to be seen as the local employer of choice,” he said. Higginson said the trust is also trying to streamline its recruitment processafter it recently lost a candidate to another hospital by half an hour becauseit was still chasing references. “We are trying to get slicker and smarterat the basics,” he said. Higginson is worried that efforts to improve recruitment and retention atthe trust could be undermined by the £5-a-day congestion charge beingintroduced for car drivers during peak hours from next year. He said the charges will also create additional costs for suppliers who willpass them on to the trust. The trust has raisedits concerns to the GLA, said Higginson read more

Saudi prince sells 2K-acre UK estate to Bahrain’s royal family for $165M

(Getty, Twitter via NicholasKingsle)Prince Bandar bin Sultan, a Saudi royal and longtime senior government official, sold a sprawling estate northwest of London to Bahrain’s royal family.Records show that Glympton Park traded hands in February for more than $165 million, according to Bloomberg Wealth. The buyers were Bahrain’s King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa and his son, Crown Prince Salman Bin Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa.Glympton Park spans 2,000 acres and centers on an 18th-century mansion. It includes ample parkland and a church dating from the 12th century. Parts of the church have been rebuilt, but some of the original work remains.The market for high-maintenance U.K. country estates hasn’t been strong in recent years, but that changed with the coronavirus pandemic. Pricing and deal volume were up as of last fall compared to years prior as wealthy buyers looked for more space and domestic vacation options.ADVERTISEMENTPrince Bandar has owned Glympton Park since 1992, when he bought it for 8 million pounds. At the time he was ambassador to the United States. He would later become chief of Saudi Arabia’s main intelligence agency and lead the kingdom’s security council.He is said to have sunk 42 million pounds into renovations and development, such as adding bullet-proof glass to the driveway and a pheasant shoot.The sale closed a couple of months after a critical report in the Guardian about taxpayer-funded government assistance paid to Glympton Estates Ltd, the entity that owns the property. The program was designed to help struggling businesses amid the pandemic.The report found that several entities owned by wealthy foreigners received money through the program. Glympton Estates Ltd received 25,000 pounds in December 2020.[Bloomberg Wealth] — Dennis lynch LondonLuxury Real EstateUnited Kingdom Share via Shortlink Tagslast_img read more

Greggs launches national apprenticeship programme

first_imgGreggs has launched a national apprenticeship programme that it claims will help to fast-track its expansion plans.The Newcastle-based business has teamed up with Gateshead College to deliver the scheme. It will see 120 apprentices trained in retail service or management in eight locations – Tyne & Wear, County Durham, Norfolk, Bristol, London, Greater Manchester, Yorkshire and the Midlands.Apprentices on the retail service course will be trained in customer service, sales, equality and diversity, and workplace health and safety. They will also gain insight into Greggs’ business model and skills such as teamwork, problem-solving and presentation and interview techniques.Meanwhile, apprentices on the team leader course will learn additional skills in management, motivation and conflict resolution.Greggs said the scheme would help it develop a new pipeline of skills to support its future growth plans, which include the opening of more outlets in the south west of England and Northern Ireland.The company last week said it expected to open 140-150 shops and close 40-50 in its current financial year, a net increase of around 100. The company’s total sales have grown 7.8% in the year-to-date, with like-for-like sales up 3.9%.“We’re thrilled to be working in partnership with Gateshead College on this exciting project, which is a great way of bringing new skills and fresh ideas into our business. This unique, collaborative approach has created a training offer that has been designed specifically to support our business goals and future growth plans,” said Roisin Currie, people and retail director at Greggs.Gateshead College was selected for the scheme following a competitive tender process. Together, Greggs and the college will train apprentices to an industry-defined standard that replaces traditional qualification frameworks and requires staff to demonstrate specific skills, competencies and personal attributes when carrying out their day-to-day jobs.“Together with Greggs, we’ve developed a flexible, dynamic training solution that is tailored specifically to the needs of the business,” added Ivan Jepson, director of business development at Gateshead College.The food-to-go business said trading had benefited from investment in greater product availability and service, reporting total sales up 8.6% in the 13 weeks to 30 September. Like-for-like sales through company-managed shops rose 5% over the period.Greggs said investment in its supply chain was progressing, and that it was focusing on redeveloping its Leeds bakery to consolidate manufacturing of small cakes and muffins. The business is to trial a new supply chain system in two sites ahead of broader roll-out next year.last_img read more

Fighting a global menace

first_imgIf the focus on cancer sometimes tilts toward its impact in rich, industrialized nations, statistics show that the disease is a scourge all around the world, with 70 percent of cancer deaths occurring in developing countries.Children in poor countries aren’t spared. An estimated 95 percent of cancer deaths among children occur in poor countries.That glaring disparity has mobilized a group of Harvard School of Public Health (HSPS) students. The students, together with the HSPH student government, the student group Students in Latino Public Health, and the Harvard Global Equity Initiative, have put together a half-day event to raise awareness and dispel myths about cancer as a global health issue. The event, scheduled for Friday at the School of Public Health’s Kresge Building, marks World Cancer Day on Monday. As part of their commitment, students are also gathering signatures for the World Cancer Declaration by the Union for International Cancer Control, which contains a list of 11 cancer-related health priorities.“There is a lot of difference between what happens in low-income countries and what happens in high-income countries,” said HSPH student Sebastián Rodríguez Llamazares.Rodriguez said the effort calls attention to the fact that cancer is a serious problem in poor nations and that steps to prevent or treat it — routine in richer countries — should be part of the global health agenda.Associate Professor of Medicine Felicia Knaul, who heads the Harvard Global Equity Initiative, which supports student World Cancer Day efforts, said there are few cancers whose outcomes are similar in both developed and developing countries. Pancreatic cancer is one, because it’s equally deadly everywhere.“For every other cancer that can be treated, the outcomes are very different,” said Knaul, a breast cancer survivor.There are several reasons for the disparity. People in poor countries seldom hear messages about lifestyle changes — don’t smoke, eat a healthy diet, exercise — that have been shown to prevent cancer. Similarly, a vaccine that can prevent one cancer fatal to women, cervical cancer, is not widely distributed. As a result, 90 percent of cervical cancer cases are found in developing countries, Knaul said.“It has very much become a cancer of poor women and a cancer for which poor women die,” she said.Disparities in mortality extend to highly treatable cancers, such as acute lymphoblastic leukemia, fatal to just 10 percent of patients in wealthy countries but deadly 90 percent of the time in poor countries.Knaul said there are several myths about global cancer that need to be exploded, including that there’s nothing that can be done, that tackling the problem would cost too much, and that bigger health issues plague the developing world. All are false, she said, adding that institutions like HSPH are key to gathering affordable, innovative solutions from around the world that can be used toward new strategies to meet the challenge.Students are a big part of the solution, Knaul said, because they’ll be designing the health solutions of tomorrow. In addition to organizing Friday’s event, students who have been touched by cancer planned to participate and share their stories of surviving or supporting a family member’s struggles with the disease.Toni Kuguru, one of the student organizers, became interested in the subject when her husband, David, became ill with multiple myeloma. He was treated in the United States and is currently in remission, but the episode got Toni Kuguru thinking about the health care system in his native Kenya, where the outcome could have been different.Kuguru said she hopes that more students will get involved after hearing about the problem and the personal testimony of those touched by cancer.“What we’re hoping for the student body is that they’ll be inspired. We’re hoping students understand there’s lots of possibilities out there to become involved,” Kuguru said.last_img read more
