  • Authorities use judicial proceedings to intimidate media

    first_img ColombiaAmericas News ColombiaAmericas October 21, 2020 Find out more April 27, 2021 Find out more August 27, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities use judicial proceedings to intimidate media to go further Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Colombia Receive email alerts RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Organisation Reports President Alvaro Uribe’s personal call on 22 August for a criminal investigation of journalist Daniel Coronell is one of the latest and worst examples of attempts by the authorities to intimidate part of the press. Reporters Without Borders condemns the arbitrary way the Colombian authorities have of late been using summonses and other legal proceedings against journalists and news media whose reporting has clearly annoyed them. President Alvaro Uribe’s call for a criminal investigation of leading journalist Daniel Coronell on 22 August is one example. We hope no investigation will take place.“Will the press soon have to obtain permission from the executive, legislature or judiciary in ordere to be able to tackle sensitive issues such as the civil war or corruption?” Reporters Without Borders asked. “Do the Uribe administration’s recent successes in combatting the guerrillas of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) give it a particular legitimacy to harass certain journalists, try to use them as police or judicial auxiliaries or, worse still, try to damage their reputation?”The press freedom organisation added: “We note that the journalists targeted by these different procedures have for a long time been in the government’s sights because of their editorial decisions. We remind the authorities that the confidentiality of journalists’ sources is essential to the media’s work and is guaranteed by the constitution, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and constitutional court rulings. All these legal manoeuvres indicate a deliberate strategy to intimidate the press.”The supreme court’s criminal chamber and a house of representatives commission have recently summoned several journalists for questioning in investigations into alleged links between politicians close to Uribe and paramilitaries – links collective dubbed as “parapolitics” – and investigations into possible irregularities in the passage of a constitutional amendment allowing a third presidential term.According to the Foundation for Press Freedom (FLIP), a Reporters Without Borders partner organisation, and the daily El Espectador, these investigations have heard testimony from Rodrigo Silva of the privately-owned national radio station Caracol Radio and Edgar Velosa and Sandra Pureza of its sister TV station Canal Caracol.Uribe said Coronell, the producer of the news programme Noticias Uno on public television station Canal Uno and editorial writer for the privately-owned magazine Semana, should be the subject of a criminal investigation for failing to immediately disclose former parliamentarian Yidis Medina’s claim in a 2004 interview that the government offered her money to vote for the constitutional amendment that allowed Uribe to be reelected. Medina had asked Coronell at the time not to use the interview or quote her, and the interview was not broadcast until April of this year.Medina, whose name has given rise to the term “Yidispolitics” for political corruption, was charged by the supreme court on 25 June. President Uribe claimed that Coronell was guilty of obstructing the judicial proceedings against her by keeping certain information and sources to himself.Repeatedly threatened by paramilitaries and forced into exile for a period in 2005, Coronell has often criticised Uribe. In a live radio broadcast on 9 October 2007, the president accused him of being a “liar,” a “bastard” and a “professional slanderer’ (see release of 15 October 2007). Coronell afterwards received threats from the Aguilas Negras (Black Eagles), a group of paramilitary origin.William Parra, a correspondent of the Latin American satellite TV news station Telesur, and Carlos Lozano, the editor of the Communist Party weekly Voz, have meanwhile been summoned for questioning in an investigation into alleged links – dubbed “Farcpolitics” – between the guerrillas and certain leading opposition figures.The accusations are based on information which the authorities claimed to have found in the laptop of Raúl Reyes, the FARC deputy leader killed in Ecuador on 1 March. Parra and his Telesur colleague Freddy Muñoz had already been accused of complicity with the guerrillas (see release of 27 November 2007) while President Uribe himself had accused Lozano, a former mediator with the rebels, of guerrilla links.

It is beyond belief that a purpose-built facility like this for the most vulnerable people in our society has not been funded by government. It’s a source of absolute embarrassment for Fine Gael that while the €2.9million to build it was raised voluntarily, it has failed to provide the funds to operate it. So, we have a state-of-the-art facility that was built for the most vulnerable in our society lying idle and forcing them and their parents, instead, to travel all the way to Dublin for respite.“There is now irrefutable evidence that, despite all the government denial and spin, that the now estimated €2bn overrun on the National Children’s Hospital is impacting on every corner of the country. It’s utterly indiscriminate as it’s clearly impacting on the most vulnerable as well,” he concluded.

  • Global Liposomal Drug Delivery Devices Market 2020: Major Players are Fudan-Zhangjiang, Pacira, Johnson and…

    first_img WhatsApp Twitter WhatsApp By Digital AIM Web Support – February 3, 2021 Facebook DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The “Liposomal Drug Delivery Devices Global Market Report 2020-30: COVID-19 Growth and Change” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. Liposomal Drug Delivery Devices Global Market Report 2020-30: COVID 19 Growth and Change provides the strategists, marketers and senior management with the critical information they need to assess the global liposomal drug delivery devices market. Major players in the liposomal drug delivery devices market are Fudan-Zhangjiang, Pacira, Johnson and Johnson, Gilead Sciences, Novartis, Luye Pharma, CSPC, Ipsen (Onivyde) and Teva Pharmaceutical. The global liposomal drug delivery market is expected to decline from $3.33 billion in 2019 to $3.30 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -0.74%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of industries and other commercial activities. The entire supply chain has been disrupted, impacting the market negatively. The market is then expected to recover and reach $4.43 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 10.27%. The liposomal drug delivery devices market consists of sales of liposomal drug delivery devices and related services by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that manufacture liposomal drug delivery devices. Liposomes are microscopic colloidal spheres that are used to deliver drug molecules to the site of action. Liposomal drug delivery devices are used in various patient care settings such as hospitals, diagnostic centers, pharmaceutical companies, clinics, and home care settings. North America was the largest region in the liposomal drug delivery devices market in 2019. The liposomal drug delivery devices market covered in this report is segmented by type into liposomal doxorubicin; liposomal paclitaxel; liposomal amphotericin B; others. It is also segmented by application into fungal diseases; cancer therapy; pain management; viral vaccines; photodynamic therapy and by end user into hospitals; diagnostic centers; ambulatory surgery centers/clinics; others. In July 2020, Croda International, Plc, a UK-based specialty chemicals company, acquired Avanti Polar Lipids, Inc. for $260 million. The acquisition is expected to expand life sciences products, cGMP production capabilities, and pharmaceutical services for biotechnology, life science, and expand customers for Croda International. Avanti Polar Lipids Inc. is a USA-based company that specializes in lipid-based drug delivery technology for next-generation pharmaceuticals. The high cost of liposomal drug delivery devices is expected to limit the growth of the market during the forecast period. The high cost of devices makes liposomal treatment more expensive and unaffordable for patients, thereby hindering the growth of the market. For instance, according to the Journal of Biotechnology & Biomaterials, lipid/liposomal drug delivery systems are expensive to produce attributing to their high production cost. The high cost of products results from the high cost associated with the raw materials used in lipid excipients and the requirement of expensive equipment to increase manufacturing. Furthermore, according to the ScienceDirect Journal, liposomal drug delivery is the most expensive treatment for topical disorders such as psoriasis, atopic dermatitis, and skin cancer. Several big companies are undertaking various strategic initiatives such as collaborations and new product development, which is likely to become a major trend in the liposomal drug delivery devices market. Various companies are coming together to develop liposomal drug delivery systems to expand their product portfolio and operations worldwide. The rise in the number of cancer cases across the globe is likely to contribute to the growth of the liposomal drug delivery devices market during the forecast period. Liposomal drug delivery systems are used as targeted therapy for cancer treatment in radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and surgical resection. The rise in cancer incidence rate globally is anticipated to boost the demand for the liposomal drug delivery devices market over the forthcoming years. Key Topics Covered: 1. Executive Summary 2.

Justice PB Suresh Kumar, while considering a criminal appeal, said that he would issue some general guidelines in relation to investigation and Trial of POCSO cases. The Court issued notice to State Public Prosecutor and also the Kerala State Legal services Authority while posting the case to 25th August.The Court said that it is concerned about the quality of the justice delivery in this field. The court made these observations after it noted that the guidelines formulated by the state as early as in April 2015 are not available in public domain. The court said that POCSO cases are being investigated by police officers who are not informed or trained to deal with children and their family members in a child sensitive manner. “Lack of professionalism is writ large in the investigations. Fundamental flaws such as, not collecting legal evidence to prove the age of the victim for want of awarenes as to relevance of such evidence have come to notice of this court not in one, but in several cases.” The court said that though guidelines mandate it, evidence are not collected to establish the sexual abuse through behavioral indicators, or to explain the trauma induced ‘counterintutive behaviour’ of the victim. The Judge also said that no mechanism is being adopted by investigating agency to cross check veracity of statements including subjecting the children to psychological/psychiatric consultations. The court added that, despite the Guideline that a lawyer should be provided for the child, no lawyer is seen engaged by the child in any proceedings under POCSO Act. Click here to Read/Download OrderRead Order Next Storylast_img read more

I’m excited to come back to Troy.”Arnold is originally from Dothan. He graduated from Dothan High School in 1974 and attended Asbury College in Wilmore, Ken.“Asbury is a Christian college and that’s why I chose it,” Arnold said. “For me, the call to the ministry was a growing thing. I accepted Christ when I was quite young. When I was in the seventh grade, I had this strong conviction that God wanted me to go into the ministry. I was involved in Christian youth groups all through junior and senior high school and my conviction was confirmed. There was no dramatic moment when I felt God’s call. I just knew.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content Park Memorial United Methodist Church is the largest church that the Rev. Danny Arnold has pastored. Actually almost twice a large so he is having to take a different approach to his ministry.“In a smaller church, in a month or so, I’ve been able to know all of the members and their family connections,” Arnold said. “Here, with a membership of 730, I haven’t been able to do that … yet.”Arnold’s first official day at Park Memorial was July 1, 2008. He came to Troy from Moundville where he had pastored the Methodist church there for three years.

There’s tremendous potential there. And, I would like for us to be more involved with the campus Wesley Foundation.”Arnold, who prefers to be called, “Brother Danny,” said he and his wife, Alice, are enjoying being in Troy and looking forward to being a part of the community as well as the Park Memorial family.The Arnolds have two sons, Benjamin, who is a counselor in Kentucky, and Joshua, who is a student at Asbury College and plans to also be a counselor. Alice Arnold works with the Pike Regional Child Advocacy Center in Troy. Arnold said Park Memorial is a tremendous church where so many good things are going on that his first role is that of a learner.“I’m getting to know the people and that takes time,” he said. “In a smaller church, the membership is like one cell or one family. Here, with two services, I’m have to try a different approach, especially as far as pastor visitation. I realize that I can’t see as many people as I want and that I can’t see everybody on a regular basis. So I’ll have to adjust to that. It’s different but I’m enjoying the challenges. Hopefully, in a few months I’ll know everybody and their family connections.”However, when he steps behind the pulpit, it will be business as usual for Arnold.“Preaching is my favorite thing,” he said. “I’m a biblical preacher. I’m true to the text. I consider myself a preacher and a teacher. Park Memorial Methodist Church welcomes new pastorlast_img read more

Its main purpose is to refuel ships and deliver cargo and supplies to warships underway.Because Grumman has receiving stations on both its port and starboard sides, it can provide underway replenishment to two ships at one time.During this rotation as 6th Fleet’s Mediterranean Sea duty oiler, Grumman has conducted 45 underway replenishments for the U.S. Navy and allied navies including Germany, Italy and Spain.Grumman, a Henry J. Kaiser class-oiler, was built at Avondale Shipyards, New Orleans, La. Grumman’s keel was laid down June 7, 1987, and the ship was commissioned August 2, 1989.

  • The Warehouse brings new events to Farmington

    first_imgFARMINGTON – Cheyanne Cushing and Jerrica Richards have partnered together to bring a new event planning business to Farmington, just in time for summer.“I’m really excited to not only put my dreams and experience into motion, but to have my sister by my side doing the same thing,” said Richards, an Air Force veteran who will be graduating this summer with a bachelors in business management with a focus on entrepreneurship.The two have been making the preliminary planning and preparations for the new business for several years now, but this spring will mark the first year that The Warehouse will be hosting ticketed events. While the business is only a ticketed event planner right now, both Richards and Cushing hope that it will become more once they introduce themselves to the community this spring and summer through game nights and other artistic events.“Our end goal is to have a location in downtown Farmington where people can rent out the space for ticketed events. But it would be set up like a restaurant, operating on a daily basis between the events,” said Cushing, who has 10 years of front-of-house restaurant experience. “It’s hard to pin down as one thing, because we want it to be flexible.”Richards has several years of experience working “back of house” in the restaurant business as well as completing several culinary courses to supplement her own knowledge and provide the other half of the restaurant equation.“Being able to collaborate our visions into a unified business is such a blessing. We both bring our own strengths to the table which in turn gives us the capabilities to really compliment each other,” said Richards.Currently, there is no storefront location for the business, but the co-owners hope to establish themselves this summer so that they will be able to secure one of their prospective locations in the Farmington area soon. As a temporary solution to their nomadic beginning, they’ve partnered with Meg Brown, a well-known baker and owner of Meg’s Sweets in Farmington, to use her outdoor garden venue for their events.Their first event on May 6 will be a Paint-a-Pot, during which ticket holders can enjoy a step-by-step instructional class where all of the materials are provided. They will also be hosting a terrarium assembly class on May 16 at the same venue, and they have agreed to plan the Backyard Band Series which will begin in June and run through the summer and fall.“You know, with the business climate right now, artists haven’t been able to perform or create in a public space really. I think the artists are just as excited as the customer base,” said Cushing.The co-owner has a passion for supporting the art community, with a few art classes under her belt, and the opportunity to bring the public and artists together was one of the appeals for starting a new event planning business.“Initially, that was one of the biggest draws for me, to be able to host and run all these art events,” said Cushing.With their collective restaurant and art experience, the two don’t anticipate hiring anyone else to host events right away, at least until they connect more with the community and consider hosting events that don’t pertain directly to art.“We want to partner with the community. I think strengthening those ties, especially in a small town, is so important. Then we might be open to having other people host events if there’s something of certain interest,” said Cushing.One of their goals for a future event is to offer a women’s business owners’ night, inviting all of the local female business owners to the venue to meet one another and to socialize in a collective space.“This summer will be the kick-off to what we hope will be not only a great business opportunity, but one the community can enjoy just as much,” said Richards.For those are interested in participating in their events, tickets can be purchased on their website: www.thewarehouseevents207.com.
