Category: tmmswymppfqmnruh As China justifies online censorship, the health of jailed netizens deteriorates

first_img China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Receive email alerts ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further RSF_en China yesterday published a white paper on the Internet, repeating the need for online censorship in the name of “respect for local laws” and “maintaining stability”, while several netizens now in prison or recently released are in a critical state of health.The release of the policy document on the Internet, published by the information bureau of the Chinese Council of State, also coincides with the news that blogger Tan Zuoren has just had his jail sentence upheld on appeal.“This white paper should have been the occasion for the Chinese authorities to rethink their current policy towards the Web”, Reporters Without Borders said. “But instead it simply adds to the usual rhetoric of the leadership in Beijing. It is no surprise, when you look at the growing repression of online news in the last few months.”“While the desire expressed to further develop the Chinese people’s access to the Internet is commendable, it is regrettable that this does not mean access to World Wide Web, but to the Chinese Web, complete with its sophisticated filtering system that blocks political, social or other news that the authorities deem undesirable”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“We urge the international community to bring this problem of net censorship before the World Trade Organisation, since it constitutes an obstacle to financial exchanges”.Net censorship has immediate human consequences. China remains the world’s largest prison for journalists, bloggers and Internet-users. More than one hundred are still being held, some of them suffering serious health problems.Reporters Without Borders also calls for the immediate release on humanitarian grounds of human rights activist Hu Jia and online journalist Yang Tianshui. Hu is seriously ill. He has recently been hospitalised and his family fear that he has liver cancer. Yang has tuberculosis and is suffering from severe arthritis, chronic kidney failure and high blood pressure. Both their lives are in danger. The organisation is dismayed at the plight of cyber-dissident Zhang Jianhong, better known under the pseudonym Li Hong, who has just been freed from jail but in an appalling state of health. He is suffering from very advanced muscular dystrophy, since for months he did not receive the treatment needed to slow the progression of the illness. He is now in intensive care and on a ventilator. He was arrested in 2006 for writing an article headlined “Olympicgate” and was jailed for six years in 2007 for “inciting subversion” and finally released on 5 June 2010. His wife, Dong Min, said he has since been treated at the number 2 hospital in Ningbo, his home town, but the cost of his medication is exorbitant, at 2,500-3,000 yuans a day (366 to 440 US dollars). Reporters Without Borders considers the Chinese authorities to be directly responsible for the worsening health of Zhang Jianhong and urges them to foot his entire medical bill. Elsewhere, the Sichuan provincial appeal court today upheld the five-year prison sentence handed down in the lower court against blogger and environmental campaigner Tan Zuoren for “inciting subversion of state power” and to three years deprivation of his political rights. He was arrested in March 2008 after urging Chinese netizens to come to Sichuan to document the plight of families hit by the earthquake. His lawyer today told Agence France-Presse that “the trial only lasted 12 minutes” and that he had the right to a further appeal. Reporters Without Borders condemns this travesty of justice and calls for charges to be dropped against Tan Zuoren and for his immediate release. “Instead of attacking this activist who only wanted justice, the authorities should focus on the responsibility of local officials for the collapse of schools costing the lives of 5,000 Children,” it said.

first_imgLocal NewsBusiness Twitter WhatsApp Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Facebook Previous articleInogen Announces Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial ResultsNext articleOAT022521_ECRWLuncheon_05 Digital AIM Web Supportcenter_img NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 24, 2021– The upcoming BBR Virtual Summit, hosted by Black Beauty Roster (BBR) and powered by Bonnti, has announced 11 additional partners to their lineup of organizations and companies driving change for people of color. This first-of-its-kind digital summit will bring together beauty pros and Hollywood insiders to learn, discuss, and advocate for a much-needed shift in representation in the entertainment and beauty industries. BBR is proud to welcome its new partners, alongside existing sponsors, L’Oréal Paris and SHOWTIME, who represent a cross-section of stakeholders needed to increase representation in Hollywood. “The BBR Virtual Summit is, at its core, about uplifting people of color in beauty and entertainment and driving large-scale change. We are so excited to partner with organizations that continue to progress the work we are doing through initiatives like TRESemmé’s Future Stylist Fund and Color of Change’s #ChangeHollywood Diversity initiative,” said Maude Okrah, co-founder of Black Beauty Roster and Bonnti. In September 2020, TRESemmé launched the inaugural TRESemmé Future Stylists Fund, an annual $100,000 scholarship program created to help Black women interested in becoming licensed hair professionals offset the cost of tuition for an accredited cosmetology school of their choosing. “Black women are underrepresented in women’s initiatives and receive fewer tools, resources, and support to advance their professional ambitions. There is more to be done, but the Future Stylists Fund is one way that TRESemmé can provide a long-term solution that specifically supports Black women,” said Esi Eggleston Bracey, EVP and COO, Beauty and Personal Care at Unilever NA. The BBR Virtual Summit will take place on Sunday, February 28 from 12pm EST to 8pm EST.

A Trulia poll of over 1,300 homeowners revealed that 90 percent of homeowners plan to remodel their home at some point, an increase from last year’s 84 percent.Many of these homeowners are not looking to remodel with a future sale in mind, but instead are remodeling for themselves. While 68 percent of homeowners plan who plan to sell their homes also plan to remodel in that time, just 17 percent of homeowners who are planning to remodel in the next two years also plan to sell their home in that time.Despite the willingness of homeowners to remodel, most don’t have any plans to remodel in the short term. Just 39 percent of homeowners polled stated interest in remodeling their home within the next 12 months.Younger homeowners, aged between 18 and 34 are more likely to renovate than older homeowners, according to the poll. Trulia found that 92 percent of these younger homeowners are considering renovating or remodeling, compared to 81 percent of homeowners 65 and over. Trulia notes that with millennial homeownership constantly increasing, we will likely see an uptick in remodeling.Homeowners considering remodeling projects are most likely to focus on rooms such as the kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is the most likely to be remodeled area of the house, with 50 percent of homeowners stating interest in remodeling their own kitchen. The bathroom falls close behind, with 45 percent of homeowners planning to remodel this room. Another 28 percent of homeowners want to remodel the bedroom while 27 percent want to remodel the living room.For all these remodeling projects, homeowners don’t want to spend too much. Around 47 percent say they would like to spend below $5,000, while just approximately 20 percent are willing to spend over $10,000. Trulia notes the low cost of many renovation efforts, such as new paint.Find more data from Trulia’s remodeling survey here.here.

Category: tmmswymppfqmnruh My Career

first_imgWhat is your job and what are your main responsibilities?I’m the commercial controller at Irwin’s Bakery in Northern Ireland, heading up marketing and new product development.Our core business is dedicated to a range of brands, such as the Rankin Selection of speciality breads, which are on sale across Ireland and GB, and plant bread brands in Ireland, such as Irwin’s and Nutty Krust batch baked bread. We also have a hand-crafted cakes business called Howell House.It’s my job to oversee brand development across the business, as well as NPD and product improvements.What other experience do you have in the baking industry?I’ve been at Irwin’s for nine years now. Before that, I worked for companies including Kerry Foods and Mr Kipling, primarily in sales and marketing roles.How does working at Irwin’s differ to previous roles?Irwin’s is a relatively small company and we are up against big brands such as Hovis and Kingsmill in Northern Ireland.Our advantage is that, because we’re a local company, we can develop products that are specifically suited to the market. We can regionalise products, while other brands have a bigger market to look at.For example, there are high cases of osteoporosis and calcium deficiency in Northern Ireland, so our bread is fortified with calcium and folic acid. We also developed low-salt bread long before any of the current targets were introduced.What are the most important aspects of your role?I have to bring the technical and marketing sides of the business together. It’s about working out how to communicate the great ideas and products we have to consumers.As part of the senior management team, an important part of my job is stepping back from the day-to-day work to look at long-term direction and wider trends.Where do you get your inspiration?Innovation is often about making life easier for people, whether that’s resealable packs or using less salt. A good way of doing this is by looking at other sectors of the retail industry for ideas. I always like to walk around a supermarket as a consumer, looking at anything from washing powder to cheese. It’s not just about what your competitors are doing.last_img read more
