His unidentified assailants also killed his 16-year-old son.The press freedom organization urges the authorities to react to the seemingly endless violence against the media by conducting a thorough debate on how to protect journalists and effectively combat impunity. The organization shares the concern about Mexico’s journalists voiced by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay, who is currently visiting Mexico.Castillo was the municipality of Ocuilan’s press officer and a columnist for the regional dailies Puntual and Diario de México, writing about regional politics. The exact circumstances of his death are not clear, but according to the police, he and his son were attacked by men in another car while driving on the freeway between Ocuilan and Tiaguistenco. His son died on the spot when the assailants ran him down with their car. Castillo, who was given a severe beating, died after being taken to the nearby Adolfo López Mateo hospital.Reporters Without Borders offers its condolences to Castillo’s widow, family and colleagues, calls on the police and judicial authorities to carry out a thorough investigation aimed at identifying and punishing those responsible for this shocking double murder, and urges them not to rule out the possibility that was it linked to Castillo’s work as a journalist.Representative of journalists’ organizations in Toluca and Mexico met yesterday with Mexico state prosecutor general Alfredo Castillo Cervantes, expressing their outrage about Castillo’s murder, which brings the number of journalists killed nationwide since 2000 to 76.Castillo was the third journalist to be killed in the past month in Mexico. Pablo Ruelas Barraza was killed in the northwestern state of Sonora on 13 June. He worked for the Diario del Yaqui in Huatabampo and El Regional de Sonora in Hermosillo. Miguel Ángel López Velasco, a columnist for the local online daily Notiver, was killed in the east coast city of Veracruz on 20 June.The frequency of killings of journalists has turned Mexico into the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for the media. With a total of seven murders in 2010 in which the motive was clearly linked to the victim’s work as journalist, Mexico was last year the world’s second deadliest country for the media, after Pakistan.During a meeting yesterday with representatives of Mexican and international free speech NGOs, including Reporters Without Borders’ Mexico correspondent, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay voiced dismay at the ever-increasing violence against journalists in Mexico and said these crimes could not remain unpunished. Freedom of expression is a priority for her office, she stressed.Cartoon: “¡Basta de Sangre!? – “No + sangre” campaign to go further News May 5, 2021 Find out more Organisation Follow the news on Mexico Reports April 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Tag: 龙凤爱上海阿拉的后花园 Elmhurst regroups after head coach Lester leaves for Syracuse

first_img Published on September 24, 2013 at 11:53 pm Contact Melissa: [email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+ Tim Lester adopted a blue-collar mentality from San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh during Lester’s last season as Elmhurst College’s head football coach.That mentality was created to inspire players to work harder every day in workouts to have an edge over their opponents. Seeing it succeed for the 49ers when Harbaugh took over in 2011, Lester kicked the mentality into full drive at the start of Elmhurst’s 2012 season.“We got blue-collar dog tags that said ‘BCM,’” senior wide receiver Chase Hamby said. “And we have shirts we wear before games and they say ‘BCM,’ too.”Sticking with the blue-collar philosophy, Lester produced one of the most successful seasons in program history. Division-III Elmhurst went 10-2 in 2012 and snagged its first College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin championship title since 1980.While the Bluejays hoped to produce another winning season, they got off to a rocky start after Lester departed for Syracuse in January. Starting quarterback Joe Camiliere was shocked when Lester left the program after the relationships he had made at Elmhurst.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textCamiliere said the seniors took Lester’s departure even harder because he was the one that recruited them and helped them grow.“At first I was disappointed because I had so much respect for him,” Hamby said, “but then I understood his opportunity and became concerned with what would happen to us.”Off the football field, Camiliere described Lester as being more than just a coach to many of the players. In the two years Camiliere knew Lester and worked with him on offense, he became more than a coach to many.“Coach Lester was almost like a father figure to us,” Hamby said. “He was a down-to-earth guy and he really took care of his players.”Lester was mostly leaving for his young family, said Joe Adam, current Elmhurst head coach. The seven-day-a-week job as head coach didn’t give him a lot of time with his wife, Dawn, and four sons. The opportunity for a Division-III coach to go Division I, Adam added, was also a perk.After Lester left for Syracuse, Elmhurst players didn’t know who their coach would be. But the team’s anxiety eased a little more than a week later when Adam — formerly Elmhurst’s defensive coordinator — was named head coach.“When he was announced as the coach, everyone was back on board,” Camiliere said. “He’s been a part of the coaching staff for the last few years.”Adam joined the Bluejays in 2007, a year before Lester. After spending five seasons as the defensive coordinator, Adam finally found himself in a position to lead the offense, as well.One of his goals is to get back to the success the team had last year. When Lester and Adam implemented the blue-collar mentality, they achieved their long-term goal of winning the CCIW. It was a good place for Adam to begin with the 2013 team.Adam kicked the blue-collar mentality into overdrive at the start of the season, putting more seniors in positions of leadership and introducing an NFL-style conditioning program to the Bluejays.But after losing 19 seniors and having a new starting quarterback, three offensive linemen and a tight end, the offensive players are still acclimating to one another.“This team is still trying to find its identity and who is going to drive the engine for us the rest of the season,” Adam said.Now finding himself in a position of leadership for the offense, senior wide receiver Hamby hopes to get the team out of its 1-2 slump.Though Elmhurst just suffered back-to-back road losses, Adam still feels the blue-collar mentality will work and help the school continue its legacy.“What we are going through is not unlike coach Lester’s situation up there at Syracuse, ” Adam said. “It just takes a little time offensively to deal with communication and understand where routes are being run. ”Some of the offensive struggles are no different than what Lester experienced in his second and third years at Elmhurst. Knowing that Lester has that experience, Adam reaches out to him when he can.Adam said he is aware that an offense changes each season and accepts the challenges as the head coach that will lead the team in the right direction.“With coach Lester’s help we put ourselves on the map,” Adam said. “Now it’s time to think big and dream big.” Commentslast_img read more

Tag: 龙凤爱上海阿拉的后花园 World Cup hosts Russia defend anti-racism chief in theft probe

first_img0Shares0000Russia’s anti-racism inspector Alexei Smertin defended by World Cup hosts over embezzlement probe © AFP/File / Yuri KADOBNOVMOSCOW, Russian Federation, Apr 24 – Russian football bosses are rallying behind World Cup anti-racism inspector Alexei Smertin in an embezzlement probe unfolding less than two months before kickoff.The scandal surrounding Moscow police club Dynamo brings together two major problems facing Russia ahead of the June 14-July 15 final: monkey chants and corruption. A former Chelsea player, Smertin serves both as the World Cup’s chief anti-discrimination official and Dynamo’s executive director.His second job turned into a poisoned chalice when evidence came to light of 1.6 million euro ($2 million) being stolen from the team by former general director Yevgeny Muravyov.The sums involved are not large when compared to the money splashing around in the bigger European leagues.But they have added to organisers’ headaches as they race against the clock to put on the most expensive World Cup ever staged.Dynamo on Tuesday confirmed that it had submitted financial records linked to Smertin and Muravyov to the interior ministry.The RBK business news site said Muravyov is suspected of wiring the 1.6 million euros to his own shell companies using the cover of two fictitious business deals.Dynamo concedes that the documents authorising the money transfers were signed by Smertin — a charismatic former national team captain who played for English Premier League giants Chelsea in 2003-2006.But it argued on Tuesday that Smertin was forced into approving the transactions by Muravyov.“The information available to (the team) permits us to believe that Smertin was intentionally deceived by, and was carrying out the direct orders of, Dynamo’s former general director,” it said.A Russian football source familiar with the investigation told AFP that police also did not hold Smertin responsible for the wire transfers.The interior ministry has issued no comment and Muravyov has denied being aware of any wrongdoing at Dynamo.“I have no idea what people are talking about,” he told the Sport Express website on Monday.Smertin is responsible for raising awareness about racism in Russian football and cleaning up the domestic game.It is a high-profile role on which world governing body FIFA is placing special emphasis because of racial abuse at Russian matches in the past months.FIFA has opened disciplinary proceedings against Russia over monkey chants heard during a World Cup warm-up against France in Saint Petersburg in March.And Russian football chiefs on Wednesday will study video of abusive chanting directed at Cape Verdean midfielder Nuno Rocha during a domestic cup semi-final in Moscow.Dynamo are a storied club who were backed by the secret police in the Soviet era but have had financial difficulties in more recent years.They were relegated to Russia’s second division in 2016 and underwent a management overhaul in March.Smertin began his carrier playing for Dynamo’s northern Siberia squad in his native city of Barnaul.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
