  • Another citizen-journalist held for covering Rif protests

    first_img News Arrested in Marrakesh on 5 August, Al Hor, the founder and editor of Rassdmaroc, was transferred to Casablanca, where he spent five days in police custody before being taken to Rabat for an initial hearing before a judge who specializes in terrorist cases. Charged with “condoning terrorism,” “inciting disobedience” and “insulting state authority,” he is now in preventive detention pending the conclusion of the judicial investigation. His family told RSF that he was arrested above all because of his many articles about the so-called “Al Hirak” protest movement in the Rif region and the city of Al-Hoceima in particular. His lawyer told RSF that Al Hor had done nothing in the course of his journalistic activities to justify the “extremely grave” charges, which carry a possible ten-year jail sentence. “Covering and commenting on a protest movement is not a crime,” RSF said. “We point out that citizen-journalism is protected by the UN Human Rights Committee’s recent interpretation of article 19 (on freedom of expression and opinion) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. “We therefore call for the immediate release of Abdelkebir Al Hor and all the other citizen-journalists and media assistants who are being arbitrarily detained for covering the protests in the Rif region.” Arrested while filming a protest in Al-Hoceima in 20 July, Hamid Mahdaoui, the editor of the Badil.info news website, was sentenced to three months in prison for supposedly “inviting” people to “participate in a banned demonstration.” Three other citizen-journalists are currently held in connection with their coverage of the Rif protests. All are awaiting the conclusion of a judicial investigation. Rif Press website editor Mohamed El Hilali was given a royal pardon on 30 July, a month after being sentenced to five months in prison. Morocco is ranked 133rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

  • US snow sports market slows but reaches $3 billion in February

    first_imgAT/Randonee equipment sales have doubled compared to last season in units and in dollars to more than $16 million in sales in snow sports channels and up more than 50% in outdoor specialty shops this season to $10 million in that sales channel.  Snowshoe sales are up 21% in units and up 20% in dollars sold through February this season.  Reverse camber snowboard sales were up 42% in units and 46% in dollars sold.  In fact, 45% of all current season model boards sold so far this season have reverse camber. The snow sports market surpassed the $3 billion mark for the 2010/2011 season but sales slowed significantly in February.  Season to date, snow sports sales are up 13% in dollars sold and up 8% in units sold. Total sales last season never reached the $3 billion dollar mark, in fact, by the end of March 2010 all snow sports sales reached just $2.94 billion.  However, comparing February 2011 to February 2011, units sold were down 2% and dollar sales were down 1.5%.  Despite slowing sales, margins showed continued strength, up 8% compared to February 2010 and total sales for the 2010/2011 season sales (August to March) should surpass the $3.1 billion record set in the 2007/2008 season.Equipment sales fell off significantly in February as scarcity made it difficult for late season consumers to find preferred products. All equipment inventory units were down 17% season to date.  Overall, equipment sales were down 20% February 2010 to February 2011 but remained up 16% in dollars sold and up 5% in units sold across the entire season.  Alpine equipment sales slowed in February, down 2% in dollars sold and down 9% in units sold, compared to February 2010.  Snowboard equipment sales were up 6% in dollars sold season to date, but down 25% when comparing February 2010 to February 2011.  The only equipment category that showed a gain when comparing February 2011 to February 2010 is AT/Randonee equipment, that was up 95% in units and 101% in dollars sold.  Despite a slow February, all equipment sales remain very healthy across the 2010/2011 season.‘I wanted to buy some new skis this February for a trip I’m taking to Colorado in March but I guess I waited too long because I can’t find the skis I’m looking for anywhere,’ Dr. L. Higdon, Yorktown, VA ‘ SIA Consumer Panel Member.Apparel sales were slightly stronger in February 2011 compared to February 2010 as La Niña conditions persisted and the northerly storm track continued to bring snow to North America’s mountain regions.  All apparel sales increased 1% in units and 2% in dollars sold compared to February 2011.  Season to date, apparel sales are up 11% in dollars and up 7% in units sold.  Accessories sales are following a pattern similar to apparel with strong season to date sales and flat sales in February.  Apparel sales were up 13% in dollars sold season to date but up only 2% in dollars when comparing the month of February 2011 with February 2010.Overall, the snow sports market is enjoying excellent sales this season and despite a slow February, is on track to set a new sales record this season. 2010/2011 Season TrendsAlpine skis (flat skis sold without bindings) in the 80mm-110mm waist width category were up 69% in dollars sold on more than 64,000 units compared to 38,000 units through February last season.

Alpine apparel is selling well this season; up 13% in dollars sold to $107 million.  The La Niña generated snow and cold across the northern half of the U.S. have spurred apparel sales all season. Weather plays the most critical role in snow sports sales and a look at sales by region clearly illustrates this phenomenon.  Regionally, heavy snow and colder than average temperatures continued to drive consumers to buy in the western region where sales were up 24% in equipment dollars sold, 15% in apparel and 18% in accessories sales.  The Northeast also enjoyed sales increasing including 16% more in equipment dollars, 20% more in apparel and 20% in accessories dollars sold season to date.  In the South, snow sports participants who were headed for more mountainous terrain continued their equipment buying spree increasing sales up 19% through February this season.  But warmer weather in the southern U.S. did not drive apparel and accessories sales. Southern apparel sales were relatively flat with a 3% gain in dollars sold and accessories are up just 1% over last season.  The Midwestern region’s sales continued to grow this season; up 15% in equipment, 5% in apparel and up 13% in accessories dollars sold.  Unit sales are up 9% overall in the Midwestern states. The market data presented in this report comes from the SIA RetailTRAKâ ¢ produced for SIA by the Leisure Trends Group.  RetailTRAKâ ¢ data is gathered directly from a representative panel of more than 1,500 snow sports retailers who provide sales data directly to the Leisure Trends Group from their Point of Sale systems.  The RetailTRAKâ ¢ panel and the method for extrapolating the results out to the entire industry is based on a triennial census of snow sports retailers designed to accurately define the size and structure of the snow sports retail marketplace.  SIA maintains these data for members down to the product level.  For more information about SIA’s RetailTRAKâ ¢ information please contact Kelly Davis, SIA’s Director of Research at [email protected](link sends e-mail). – SIA -SnowSports Industries America (SIA) is the national not-for-profit, North American member-owned, trade association representing the snow sports industry.

  • More than 500 new HIV infections in Indiana each year

    first_imgINDIANAPOLIS – For more than 25 years around the globe, Dec. 1 has been a day to bring awareness and understanding about AIDS.And to commemorate  World Aids Day, services, memorials and educational events are being held across Indiana.Leeah Hopper, executive program director of AIDS Ministries/AIDS Assist of North Indiana, says there has been an increase in the number of HIV infections among those age 30 and younger, as well as African-Americans.She says HIV is 100 percent preventable, but some people are unaware they are infected.“There are also people out there engaging in risky behaviors with other people and aren’t using protection,” she says, “sharing of the needles or unprotected sex.“So education is just extremely important, because it’s not in the news as often as it was 20 or 30 years ago.”According to the latest figures from the Indiana State Department of Health, in 2012 more than 10,700 people were living with HIV/AIDs and there were 509 newly diagnosed cases.Hopper says things are quite different from the height of the AIDS epidemic decades ago. She says improvements in treatment are allowing those infected to live a healthy life for many years.“When HIV first was found, there weren’t any medications, and then we did get a med, but it was one med and it was killing people more than it was really helping them,” she recalls. “And then people had to start taking anywhere from eight to 10 medications every three to four hours. Now we’re down to just that one pill once a day.”AIDS Ministries educates about HIV and AIDS in schools, drug treatment facilities and other community centers.Hopper says her organization talks about ways to reduce risk factors, how to stop the spread of infection and the importance of being tested.Many facilities provide free daily testing, which she recommends over an at-home test.“Just because not everyone knows how to administer the test properly,” she explains. “You may get some false results or reading the test and you should always have somebody with you if it does come back positive just to be there as a support. ”Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more
