Authorities confirm arrest of two cyber-dissidents

first_img News September 26, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Authorities confirm arrest of two cyber-dissidents Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam Vietnam sentences journalist Tran Thi Tuyet Dieu to eight years in prison Follow the news on Vietnam to go further News April 7, 2021 Find out more RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang RSF_en VietnamAsia – Pacific According to Agence France Presse, the Vietnamese authorities confirmed on 21 September that they have arrested cyber-dissidents Le Nguyen Sang and Huynh Nguyen Dao for distributing pamphlets and posting political documents online. These activities were “contrary to the interests of the Vietnamese state and could be interpreted as terrorism,” the authorities said.Nguyen Hoang Long is the pseudonym used by Le Nguyen Sang, a 48-year-old doctor, while Huynh Viet Lang is the pseudonym of Huynh Nguyen Dao, a 38-year-old journalist.According to the US-based People’s Democratic Party, an exile organisation that is banned inside Vietnam, the two cyber-dissidents are being held in a detention centre in Ho Chi Minh City. The group claims that four more of its members are also currently detained in Vietnam although the authorities have so far refused to release any information about them.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the release of Le Nguyen Sang and Huynh Nguyen Dao and urges the authorities to say whether or not they are also holding the four other People’s Democratic Party activists. Two other cyber-dissidents, Nguyen Vu Binh and Truong Quoc Huy, are also still in prison in Vietnam. Reporters Without Borders calls on foreign diplomats to try to promote respect for free expression in Vietnam, which is about to join the World Trade Organisation.——————21.09.2006 – US cyber-dissident freed after more than five weeks in custodyReporters Without Borders is relieved to learn of the release, on 21 September 2006, of Cong Thanh Do (pen name Nam Tran), but the organisation expressed concern about the plight of two other cyber-dissidents, both Vietnamese nationals, arrested at the same time and about whom there has been no news.”We hail the work of foreign diplomats, particularly American, which brought about this release,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “We nevertheless urge them not to let up in their efforts to obtain the same outcome for four other cyber-dissidents in custody in Vietnam.“We are also waiting for the Vietnamese authorities to provide information about the arrests of Nguyen Hoang Long and Huynh Viet Lang, which appear to be linked to that of Cong Thanh Do”, the organisation added.Cong Thanh Do was due to arrive in San Francisco, California, around 4am on 22 September (Paris time).His wife, who was able to speak briefly to him on the telephone, said he was very weak. “I am extremely relieved but I would like to point out that it was totally unjustified to hold my father in custody,” she said. “The authorities are simply determined to shut him up.”Cong Thanh Do, a 47-year-old engineer from San José wrote for various foreign based websites. He was arrested on 14 August in Phan Thiet, southern Vietnam. His family said he was accused of having plotted a bomb attack against the US Consulate, a bizarre accusation which did not appear to have any basis in tangible fact. In fact, he was targeted by the authorities because of what he wrote online and for his alleged membership of a banned political organisation in Vietnam, the foreign-based Vietnam People’s Democratic Party.Sources based outside the country said that two cyber-dissidents with Vietnamese nationality, known only under their pen names Nguyen Hoang Long and Huynh Viet Lang, have reportedly been held since mid-August. The authorities have not yet given out any information about them. Apart from Nguyen Hoang Long and Huynh Viet Lang, two other cyber-dissidents, Nguyen Vu Binh and Truong Quoc Huy, are still behind bars in Vietnam.

Is Guimaras COVID-free? DOH says ‘no’; governor says ‘yes’

first_imgThe Guimarasnon patient was from Italy. He and four other Guimarasnon OFWs were tested immediately upon disembarking here from the ship that transported them from Manila. The OFW – a 27-year-old seaman and resident of Buenavista, Guimaras – was one of the 266 stranded Ilonggo overseas workers who returned to the region from Metro Manila on April 29. Only returning residents who had the occasion to enter the province beginning March 15 and who do not exhibit symptoms referable to COVID-19 are allowed entry but shall comply with the mandatory quarantine regulations. The Guimaras OFW is the region’s COVID-19 Patient No. 72. For months since the pandemic broke out, the provincial government of Guimaras has kept SARS-CoV-2 at bay. Guimaras is under general community quarantine (GCQ) until May 15. It is one of the provinces classified by the national government as “low risk” in the spread of COVID-19. Only the roll on, roll off wharves in Jordan and Buenavista towns are being used as ports of entry to Guimaras. The governor clarified, however, that his provincial government is not shirking from its responsibility to take care all the returning Guimaras OFWs. However, Gumarin said, stricter border control remains. “Indi nami” (not good) was how he described DOH-6’s move. An “inbound pass” is issued for non-residents who enter Guimaras. This Guimarasnon, however, has yet to return to his home province. He is currently on quarantine at a hotel in Iloilo City, stressed Gov. Samuel Gumarin. The no dine-in policy is observed for the food establishments in the province. ILOILO City – The provincial government of Guimaras is protesting the Department of Health (DOH) Region 6’s decision to count as the island province’s first confirmed case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) the overseas Filipino worker (OFW) who tested positive for the illness here. Government health workers and those who are in law enforcement rendering services in Guimaras, those rendering essential or professional services and other government employees authorized by the provincial government are also granted entry. “We’re being reported as having a COVID-19 case even if the patient has not set foot on Guimaras,” lamented Gumarin. “Kon diri tani nag-positive, may rason nga i-label sia nga confirmed case sang Guimaras,” said Gumarin. He urged DOH to be more circumspect.center_img GUIMARAS UNDER GCQ BUT… DOH listed Patient No. 72 as Guimaras’ first COVID-9 case in its Bulletin No. 37 issued on May 2. The Puyo Wharf in the municipality of Nueva Valencia is open but only for cargoes and delivery of products from outside Guimaras. Tricycles are allowed to operate from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. but only with one passenger . However, hospitals and funeral parlors shall are allowed to operate for 24 hours. “Will DOH list as COVID cases of Guimaras, too, other Guimarasnons who test positive in other areas of the Philippines?” asked Gumarin. Public transportation is allowed to operate from 6 a.m. until 5 p.m. only, and strict physical distancing will be observed. To avoid “misconceptions”, according to Gumarin, DOH should have indicated in the bulletin that the patient was on quarantine in Iloilo City and had not set foot yet on Guimaras. The test results of the four others were yet to be released. Trips of motorbancas plying the Guimaras-Iloilo route vice versa are only be from 6 a.m. until 4 p.m. Essential business establishments such as market, groceries / convenience stores, sari-sari stores, pharmacies, gasoline stations, water refilling stations, banks, money centers, clinics, health facility, construction supplies, motorcycle / auto supplies, agricultural / poultry supplies, food establishments, public utilities, barber shops, salons are allowed to open from 6 a.m. until 3 p.m. Outbound travels of Guimarasnons are still limited with only medical referrals, emergency cases and cases that are determined by the provincial government to be meritorious (a valid identification card and outbound / quarantine pass are required). For non-residents who leave the island, only those with an outbound pass are permitted. In effect, Gumarin said, his province remains free from SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. Non-residents of the island are only allowed entry if the purpose of travel is to transport basic commodities and necessities; or emergency cases; or some cases deemed reasonable by the provincial government. Motorcycles are prohibited for public conveyances but can be used for private purposes and only one backrider is allowed./PNlast_img read more

PSE Awards 10 Local Organizations Funding for New Solar Installations

first_imgFacebook19Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Puget Sound EnergyAs the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted families throughout Washington, local organizations that have been helping them will receive support from Puget Sound Energy. PSE will grant nearly $580,000 to 10 organizations throughout its service area for new solar installations which will total 235 kW of new installed solar enough to power/or save nearly 240,000 kWh. This will help local organizations by reducing its operating costs while also helping the environment by producing green power.The ten recipients are:Anacortes Housing AuthorityCommunity Youth ServicesFamily Support CenterHomes FirstKing County Housing AuthorityKulshan Land TrustLummi Nation Housing AuthorityMuckleshoot Housing AuthorityLydia PlaceOpportunity Council“We are in an unprecedented time where agencies dedicated to serving our communities and customers are more critical than ever,” said PSE Director of New Product Development Will Einstein. “If we can help these agencies add solar energy to their facilities, we can support their core mission by helping to reduce their costs and provide those savings to the families they serve with renewable energy.”King County Housing Authority received $75,000 for a 35 kilowatt system which is expected to generate 35,000 kwhs, about 25 percent of its annual electric usage, and save the organization about $3,000 in electric bills each year.“Our partnership with Puget Sound Energy solves several challenges at once: the installation of solar panels supports the expansion of cleaner energy and a healthier environment while helping to keep the housing affordable by lowering the operating costs at the property,” said King County Housing Authority Resource Conservation Manager Jenna Smith.  “It’s also helping make the push to a clean energy future more inclusive.”In Thurston County, Homes First will generate roughly 25,000 kwhs a year, which is almost 70 percent of its annual electric load and more than $2,200 in electric savings each year.“It has been a dream of mine since joining Homes First to solar power some of our homes,” said Homes First CEO Trudy Soucoup. “Being able to provide our community with homes that are safe, healthy, and affordable for our lowest of income neighbors while also reducing energy costs and reducing our environmental footprint makes the work we do even more impactful.”She added, “I believe it is often thought that affordable rental homes that are energy efficient and environmentally friendly can’t be accessible to the lowest-of-income members of our community. Providing this opportunity really makes our tenants a part of a community they thought unreachable, rather than apart from their community.”Applications for the next round of grant funding for 2020-2021 is currently open through Sept. 4, 2020.

Enabling our community partners to install solar projects is just another way we are committing to a better energy future. For more on PSE’s commitment, visit read more

5 Services That Can Upgrade Your Video Chat Experience

first_imgchris mcconnell Related Posts If you are bored with the likes of Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangouts or simply want to see what else is out there, here is some fun new video-chat candy to check out.Skype? Dinosaur. Airtime? Flop. FaceTime and Google Hangouts? Bland. As defaults, they are just there with an Apple device or a Google account. Workable, sure, but are they going to blow your mind in terms of functionality? Maybe a few years ago. If you’re ready to see the latest in the world of video chat (and even if you aren’t), I’ve got some goodies for you. Here are a few of my favorite video chat applications as of late. I know you were always told not to take things from strangers, but I promise, this candy for your eyes is totally safe.PerchPerch bills itself as an always-on video portal. This is perfect for a remote workforce. Let’s say you work from home (sorry, Yahoo workers) and you want to stay in touch with the rest of your design team at company HQ. Simply mount an iPad on the wall in your workspace and mount another near a colleague’s desk in the office. Fire up Perch and it’s like you’re there. Perch auto-detects a person looking at the screen and knows it’s time to unmute and let you talk. With multiple connected devices it’s easy to switch between different locations.SqwiggleSqwiggle is very similar to Perch in that it functions as an always-on video connection that is perfectly suited for the remote workforce. It differs in a few interesting ways, though. First, Sqwiggle lets you break out into teams (group video chats) rather than focusing on one individual portal. Additionally, the entire team can use a feature called stream (a chat box on the side of the screen) to share things like links, code, photos or video. It’s a lightweight version of something like Teambox (which just added video chat, too).RabbitRabbit has positioned itself for the non-business consumer set. It’s geared toward letting you hangout with your friends when you are all in different places. Like what? You can actually watch videos or listen to music together with your friends online. Want to share your photos with your friends in real time? With Rabbit you can.GlideNope, I haven’t forgotten about your smartphone. Enter Glide, an app that facilitates video texting. This is a really cool concept that lets you send your friends video messages that can either be viewed live or later. Since everything gets saved in the cloud, you don’t have to worry about being out of the loop if you are offline for any reason. Glide lets you talk to your fiends either individually or as a group. No need to schedule anything in advance. The autoplay feature lets you relive conversations as they happened. If you need it, texting through Glide is still an option.ooVooooVoo tries to do it all. It works on your desktop (Mac and PC), as well as on your mobile. It does group video chat (with up to 12 people) and lets you record all the action for later. ooVoo lets you leave video messages up to five minutes long for those absent. You can share files, chat, share your screen or consume content together. On top of all of that, you can make free voice calls. Note: the PC version is currently much more robust than the Mac version.

Parting with Your Dream Client is Such Sweet Sorrow

first_imgNever give up. Never give in. Given enough focus, time, and energy, all obstacles yield.There was the one time a client said, “We will never work with you again.” They worked with me and my company again. There was one stakeholder who promised that no one in her company would ever work with us. “Ever,” she said. She disappeared, and like magic, we were back.The only constant is change. You know it here as constant, accelerating, disruptive change (which has been around since before there was anyone around to notice it).You are going to lose clients. Sometimes it will be your fault, and other times you will be blameless. This is the reality of business, commerce, evolution, and quite especially, sales. There are times when you and your client—even the one you love—must part ways.Your client is going to be purchased by a larger rival. That company is going to have a contract with your rival. You are going to find yourself on the outside of a relationship that just acquired your relationships. Even if you are better than your rival and right for the company that bought your dream client, it will be necessary for you to displace your competitor. But remember, you have some part of the building wired with your past relationships.Some client is going to move their operations overseas. They’re going to go to Mexico, or Shanghai, or Nicaragua. Maybe they’re going to move part of their operations to Europe, or two states over, neither of which are close enough for you to manage their business. Companies leave and come back. Your company grows and expands. Forever is a long time.That favorite of all favorite clients, the one that loves you and is easy to take care of, has experienced what some call “negative growth,” which is a euphemism for declining sales and unintentionally shrinking the business. Now, the favorite client is conscious of money, and their new perception, the one that is based on survival at all cost, means they are no longer going to give you the investment you require. They want a price you can’t meet, and that means they are walking across the street to your competitor. They’re gone . . . but perhaps not forever.As much as it is in your interest not to churn clients, it is also in your interest to accept the fact that, over time, you are going to lose clients. The way you hedge here is to always have enough of a pipeline and growing sales to be able to withstand the loss of any one client. The other way you hedge is to persist over time, knowing that nothing is forever. Essential Reading!

How will Lighty former Buckeyes fare in NBA draft

For the past four years, Ohio State has had at least one player selected in the NBA Draft. The streak will more than likely extend to five years Thursday night as former Buckeye David Lighty realizes his professional dream. Lighty, the all-time leader in wins at OSU, is widely projected to be taken in the second round. ESPN analyst Fran Fraschilla told the Cleveland Plain Dealer he feels that Lighty will be valuable to an NBA team. “I think David Lighty will be on the roster in one way, shape or form,” Fraschilla told the Plain Dealer. “[It wouldn’t be a surprise] if you tell me in a year or two from now he’s having a lot of success because he’s one of those no-mistake guys we talked about. If you put him on the floor he’s probably going to know his role. There is a lot that he offers as an early to mid-second round pick.” The 6-foot-6, 216-pound Buckeye was a defensive-specialist at OSU, regularly taking on the opposing team’s best scorer. Last season, Lighty averaged slightly more than 12 points per game while shooting a career-best 46.8 percent on three-pointers. Several teams have hosted Lighty for a workout, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, who hold two selections in the second round. Another Buckeye who might hear his name called on Thursday night is Jon Diebler. While the general sense is that Diebler has a greater chance of going undrafted than Lighty, ESPN draft analyst Chad Ford told the Plain Dealer he thinks both players will be selected. “Diebler shot 50 percent from three this year, and he took a lot of threes,” Ford told the paper. “He’s got pretty good size. He’s not a terrible athlete either. I actually think both [Lighty and Diebler] will be drafted.” Ford has Diebler ranked as the 69th prospect of the draft class. If he is picked, it would cap off a busy and memorable month for the OSU senior. Along with NBA workouts, Diebler recently married. Fellow senior Dallas Lauderdale will more than likely go undrafted, but the 6-8, 260-pounder has worked out for a few teams and should get an invite to an NBA training camp. Before the Cavaliers have the chance to consider this trio of Buckeyes in the second round, the team must decide what to do with the No. 1 and No. 4 overall picks of the draft. The general consensus is that Duke guard Kyrie Irving and Arizona forward Derrick Williams are the two best players in the draft class, both worthy of garnering the top-selection. Ford predicts Cleveland will take Irving. The Cavaliers could have several options with the fourth pick. Many mock drafts have them deciding between two European big men, 7-foot Jonas Valanciunas from Lithuania and 6-foot-11 Enes Kanter from Turkey. Cleveland has also been rumored to be exploring trade options with the pick, including a bid to secure the second overall selection from Minnesota in hopes of getting both Irving and Williams. According to Ford’s mock draft analysis, Valanciunas has a buyout with his team in Lithuania that may prevent him from playing in the NBA this season. Ultimately, he projects the Cavaliers will take Kanter. “The Cavs love Valanciunas, but do they love him enough to draft him even if he won’t be coming to the NBA next season? I doubt it at No. 4. The Cavs have been exploring a number of trade possibilities to move down a few spots in the draft. If they stay here, I think Kanter is their guy,” Ford wrote. The 2011 NBA Draft is Thursday at 7 p.m. in Newark, N.J. read more

Commentary Big East should take a back seat to the Big Ten

The Big Ten Tournament is a middle child. No one outside of the conference pays much attention to it because they’re too busy watching the golden boy of postseason conference tournaments, the Big East Tournament. Year after year, the Big East Tournament provides college basketball fans across the country with classic games and classic performances in the mecca of the basketball world (Madison Square Garden). There was the six-overtime game between Connecticut and Syracuse in 2009 and Kemba Walker’s epic one-man run to win the Big East Tournament (and ultimately the National Championship) last year. If the Connecticut-West Virginia, Connecticut-Syracuse and Cincinnati-Georgetown games are any indication, this year’s Big East Tournament won’t be any different. But times might be changing. The middle child might make a very loud cry for attention this year. The past few years, the Big East has dominated college basketball. Yeah the conference has a higher number of teams than any other top-six conference, but the conference was stacked like a magician’s deck of cards. That’s not the case in 2012. Top to bottom, no conference in the country is stronger than the Big Ten. Five of the 12 Big Ten teams are ranked in the top 15 in the country, compared to three out of 16 teams in the Big East. Last year at this time, the Big East had seven teams in the top 25. This year they have just four. The fact is when talented teams already familiar with each other get together with high stakes on the line, there are going to be some high-intensity, quality basketball games played. This year, the tournament with the most overall talent will be in Indianapolis and not coincidentally, that’s where the best postseason conference tournament will be as well. To put in perspective how tough the Big Ten tournament will be this year, No. 14 Wisconsin, the fourth-seeded team in the Big Ten, will have to play their first game of the tournament against No. 15 Indiana Friday. So much for a warm-up. And don’t forget, the regular season of the Big Ten ended in a tie. Michigan State, Michigan and Ohio State finished with identical 13-5 records in the conference and split their regular season meetings. You don’t think players will be fighting for bragging rights? You don’t think Michigan State is furious they lost their final two games of the year including its Senior Day against OSU? There will be emotion. There will be passion. And in the case of some teams, there will be desperation. Mix those things together and it’s a basketball fan’s heaven. Best of all, the whole thing will be broadcast live to you by the most over-the-top but awesome commentator in sports, Gus Johnson. ESPN columnist Bill Simmons always talks about the “Law Of Gus.” It states that in games he announces, crazy things happen. Buzzer beaters, comebacks, men with overgrown hair and a mole mustache crying in the middle of the court (Adam Morrison), you name it. If Gus is there, everything is in play. The law has been proven and re-proven so many times. It’s only a matter of time before it gets published in a scientific journal. The Big East Tournament may have Madison Square Garden, but I’ll take better teams, unfinished conference feuds and ridiculously over-dramatic announcing. I’ll take the Big Ten tournament. read more

Serie B in chaos

first_imgPro Vercelli President believes Serie B is now in chaos and here is why.Bari and Cesena have failed to register for the Serie B for next season as a result of financial difficulties as both clubs are bankrupt. However, the issue comes from uncertainty regarding who’ll replace both clubs in the league next season.The two clubs can start over in Serie D provided Mayor of both cities can find new investors for the two teams. Avellino have been granted more time to come up with a guarantor so as to register for the upcoming season in the league.With Ternana, Pro Vercelli, Virtus Entella and Novara all relegated from Serie B, what is certain is that there’ll be two or three empty spaces left to fill in the league.Some of those clubs could be brought back to the Serie B, but it remains unclear as to which clubs will be giving that second chance.Report: Juve loan out young midfielder Kastanos George Patchias – August 23, 2019 Grigoris Kastanos is the latest Juventus youth player to go out on loan.The Cypriot international midfielder arrived at Juventus at the age of 16…Novara have recently won an appeal that could see them afforded the opportunity to return. The club were fined for paying to pay salaries back in 2015 but they appealed to the FIGC and the decision was overturned.Siena and Virtus Entella believed to be in the running to play in Serie B but with the current situation surrounding Novara, they are believed to be favourites.Novara’s eligibility now means Pro Vercelli are almost certainly out of it as they finished behind Novara on the log last season.“It’s all chaos. It is pointless to speculate now, we’ve to wait till the table is drawn.” Pro Vercelli President told the press, according to Football Italia.last_img read more

Solskjaer reveals how he intends to improve Rashford

first_imgManchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revealed his plans for Marcus Rashford, who believes has “far more” than he did in terms of physical attributesThe English striker has only found the net five times in 22 games for United this season, amid struggles under former manager Jose Mourinho.Following Solskjaer’s appointment, however, Rashford excelled in both of the Norwegian’s games in charge of United against Cardiff City and Huddersfield Town.Now Solskjaer has paid tribute to the talented 21-year-old and intends to improve him further by working on his movement and finishing in the area.“I think Marcus Rashford has got the motivation and inspiration himself to become the best he can be,” Solskjaer told the club website.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He practises a lot, he’s got so much more than I had in the physical attributes – his pace and strength, striking from outside the box.”Maybe I can give him a little bit of that nous that I had in the box – your movement to get free, that little bit of calmness in front of goal. But it’s easy to say when I was 27, 28 or 29 because Marcus is 21 and still learning.“But for me, the most important thing is to settle him down in front of goal. I’ve seen him rush a few finishes like ‘I really need to get a shot off early’.“Sometimes you just pass it past the keeper, because if there’s a defender you just pass it past him or you go past him. That goal will never move. I’m really looking forward to having the amount of talent that I’m working with now up front.The 45-year-old was a prolific scorer himself during his own playing days with 127 goals in 364 appearances for United, which includes the famous match-winner against Bayern Munich in the 1999 Champions League final.last_img read more
