BLM and union hold joint protest

first_imgAlbany, N.Y. – When Albany Mayor Kathy Sheehan gave her annual State of the City speech on Jan. 25, she was confronted by a disruptive demonstration called jointly by Black Lives Matter and the Albany Blue Collar Workers Union, Local 1961 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees. Other organizations, such as the Capital District Showing Up for Racial Justice, also participated. Despite a large contingent of cops, the protest maintained chanting and singing throughout the mayor’s speech.On April 2, 2015, Dontay Ivy, an unarmed 39-year-old Black man who suffered from mental illness, had been taking his normal nighttime walk when he was surrounded by several Albany cops. Ivy was Tasered, clubbed and tackled. As he lay on the sidewalk, Ivy suffered a heart attack and died.Prosecutors refused to charge the cops. None were even fired. No explanation was offered as to why Ivy was stopped in the first place.This is the second year that Black Lives Matter activists have disrupted the mayor’s speech to demand justice for Ivy. Mayor Sheehan responded by saying: “That’s an easy solution that doesn’t actually accomplish anything. It might sound simple and it might make them feel good, but it doesn’t change a department.” (timesunion.com, Jan. 27)This comment drew the full fury of the protesters, who called for not only firing the cops involved but also firing the police chief and disarming the police department.The Blue Collar Workers Union has been forced to work without a contract or a pay raise since 2013. The 2017 Albany city budget offers no raises for the city’s blue- or white-collar workers, but does give a pay hike to some non-union staff, which city administrators say is necessary for them to “remain competitive.” (timesunion.com, Nov. 7)Albany cops, however, do get their “step” pay increases in the new budget. (timesunion.com, Oct. 11)So the chants of “No justice, No peace!” as well as “Hey! Ho! Kathy Sheehan’s got to go!” hurled nonstop at Mayor Sheehan reflected the sentiments of both Albany’s oppressed community as well as its city workers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

She is the fourth journalist to receive a jail term in Chad this year.”We learn of Sy Koumbo’s sentence with sadness and anger,” the press freedom organisation said. “The international community has reacted with indifference to this crackdown by President Idriss Déby’s government. France, in particular, which proclaims its support for free expression, should wake up to the scandal this fourth prison sentence represents and should use all its weight to obtain the release of the four journalists as soon as possible.”Sy Koumbo was convicted for a 13 July interview with imprisoned independent journalist Garondé Djarma, who was already serving a three-year prison term. In the interview, Garondé attributed his arrested to a “Janjaweed plot,” using the term “Janjaweed” to refer to Chadian Arabs of the CDR party.As a result of these remarks, Garondé yesterday received an additional sentence of one year in prison and a fine of 100,000 CFA francs for “defamation” and “inciting hate.” He was given the three-year sentence on 18 July.Many Chadian journalists demonstrated support for Sy Koumbo yesterday and accompanied her during her transfer to prison. The Union of Chadian Journalists (UJT), to which most state and private-sector journalists belong, yesterday called for a one-week strike from 22 August.In addition to Sy Koumbo and Garondé, the other Chadian journalists currently serving prison sentences are Samory Ngaradoumbé and Michael Didama._______________________________________08. 08. 05 A third journalist is jailed while a fourth awaits sentencingReporters Without Borders condemned the “constant harassment” of Chad’s independent journalists after Le Temps editor Michael Didama was sentenced today to six months in prison and the trial began of L’Observateur editor Sy Koumbo Singa Gali. Didama, who was immediately detained at the end of his trial, is the third journalist to be imprisoned in Chad this year.”We are horrified to see journalists who displease the regime being taken off to prison one by one,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Although the government claims to defend public order, it is responsible for a serious decline in press freedom and President Idriss Déby should realise he has put Chad on a dangerous course by cracking down on the press.”The organisation added: “The imprisoned journalists must be freed and the ongoing prosecutions must be dropped in order to assuage the problems destabilising the country.” Didama was given a six-month jail term and a fine of 200,000 CFA francs (about 305 euros) after being convicted of libel, “mendacious reports” and “incitement to tribal hate” for publishing a report about an active rebel movement in the east of the country and photos taken from the website of Al Whida, the armed opposition’s newspaper.He was initially arrested on 22 June but was released on a technicality on 11 July. The government thereafter initiated a new prosecution against him when he appeared in court on 18 July.L’Observateur’s editor, Sy Koumbo, appeared before a court in N’Djamena today over an interview she published on 13 July with imprisoned independent journalist Garondé Djarma.

International trail of deceit likely to lead to a pauper’s grave

first_imgWalk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April Shannondoc operating but only by appointment by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up THE woman whose decomposing remains were found by burglars in a County Limerick farmhouse last week, left an Australian couple penniless after she convinced them to invest in a US property deal that never existed.Julia Ruttle, as she was most recently known, died alongside her partner Tom Ruttle in an upstairs bedroom of his home at Boolaglass, Askeaton.It is now believed that the 63-year-old Tyrone woman, whose real name is Ceceila Julia McKitterrick, died in a suicide pact by carbon monoxide poisoning with Tom Ruttle (56), the man who was known as her “husband” despite the fact that she hadn’t divorced from her two previous marriages.And, as details her fraudulent activities continued to emerge, The Limerick Post was contacted by a couple who say their lives were ruined by the conwoman who left a trail of heartbreak and deception in her wake.Speaking from Australia, Amanda Kent and her husband Greg said that they first encountered Julia Ruttle in 2011 when she was living in Abbeyfeale. Mr Kent, a truck driver, had received a substantial compensation award from an accident in 2006.Similar to the fraud scam that resulted in her imprisonment in Texas, the conwoman convinced them she could get a three to four-fold return on their investment in a US property portfolio she said was worth millions.“She was living in Limerick and we first met her in 2011 through facebook, through my husband’s parents, I think they met her online as well”, Ms Kent recalled.“We got to be really close with them. We thought of them as surrogate parents, and they were going to fly over to Australia for our wedding in March 2012, but that’s when she said she had her stillbirth which we now know didn’t happen.“She had spoken to us about a property investment she was involved with in the US and asked if we would like to be part of it. She said we would make three or four times whatever we invested by November that year.“We initially transferred over €50,000 and then a few weeks later she talked about more openings if we wanted to invest more money and so we transferred another €20,000.“This was the deposit for our house, so we looked on it as an investment. Our deposit wasn’t enough so we were happy to take the opportunity because otherwise we would have been saving for a lot longer” she explained.After their marriage in 2012, the Kents spent two weeks with Julia and Tom Ruttle who were renting a house in West Abbeyfeale.“In the weeks before the wedding, she kept telling us we should invest a bit more money in the US property deal as she could get that return to us quicker than the other money we already put in. She said it would help with the wedding cost but we didn’t want to invest more money as it was the last of what we had, so we kept saying no and putting her off.However, she said she had invested €30,000 on our behalf and we would have to give it back to her. She asked for €20,000 as she would give us the extra €10,000 as a wedding gift.“We were bullied in to giving her the last €20,000 of our house money, so all we had left was a bit of money for our honeymoon and that was it.“Over the next two years, we tried to get it back but by the end of 2013, I knew we’d been ripped off. I contacted a lawyer who said he could help me, as all the money went into Tom’s account and he could go after his assets and report her to the Gardaí.However, the legal costs of bringing Julia Ruttle to justice prevented them from recouping their losses.“We had no money left and by then and I couldn’t even keep up with living costs, let alone try to pay for lawyers. We just kept messaging her to give it back, but she just cut all contact, changed her number, closed her facebook and email accounts.“We have nothing and will never have the chance of having our own home,  I’m so angry that not only did she steal from us and our kids, but by killing herself she’s made sure we never get anything ever, its like being stolen from twice.“Anyway that’s pretty much the short version of it, I don’t know what she told Tom we were giving her money for, I just wish I had asked Tom about it at the time,“I wonder if I had, maybe we all would have realised then what she was doing. I do know that Tom didn’t deserve to die. I feel sorry for him. She ruined him the most.This week, Tom Ruttle’s remains were released to his family for a private funeral in Askeaton while the body of the woman known as Cecilia Julia McKitterrick lay in the morgue, unclaimed and likely to be buried in a pauper’s grave by Limerick City and County Council.

Justice Anupinder Singh Grewal was considering a plea, where the petitioner, though 75% physically challenged, was aggrieved that the state authorities are arbitrarily not allowing him to continue till the age of 60 in violation of the 1995 Act as well as instructions dated 19.11.2014. “There is inadvertent error in the subject of the instructions which should read regarding the increase in age from 58 years to 60 years”, it was urged. The State counsel had filed reply wherein it was stated that the increase in age of retirement from 58 to 60 years for disabled employees is not unconditional but subject to the condition that they should be mentally and physically fit to discharge the duties of the post. She also filed a copy of the medical report of the Civil Surgeon, Patiala which mentioned that the petitioner was examined by the Board of Doctors and it was found that the petitioner is disabled to the tune of 75% as he is suffering from severe ataxia as assessed by the department of neurology. It was also stated that he is unable to walk independently and cannot carry out activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, transferring and eating independently. In their opinion, the petitioner cannot carry out his office work as Junior Assistant. “It is manifest that the respondents are being insensitive and indifferent to the plight of a challenged employee which is anathema to a welfare state and contrary to the objective of the Act”, observed the bench. The Single Judge noted that merely because the employee cannot carry out work as Junior Assistant, it cannot be taken that he would be unfit to discharge any other job. Justice Grewal placed reliance on section 47(1) of the Act which stipulates that no establishment can dispense with or reduce in rank an employee who acquires a disability during his service. In the event, he is found to be not suitable for the post he was holding, he has to be shifted to some other post with the same pay scale and service benefits. It is further provided that if it is not possible to adjust the employee against any post, he may be kept on a supernumerary post until a suitable post is available or he attains the age of superannuation, whichever is earlier. Accordingly, the court issued interim directions to the state of Punjab, requiring that the petitioner be taken back in service forthwith in the same pay scale and adjusted at suitable post where he may work online from home in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Electrical resistivity of ice from the Antarctic Peninsula, Antarctica

Georesistivity soundings have been carried out at four sites in the Antarctic Peninsula. The objective of the work was to investigate the electrical behaviour of ice from an area where substantial melting occurs in summer and from contrasting thermal regimes. Electrical measurements made at three sites along a flow line within George VI Ice Shelf reveal that: (a) the resistivity of deep ice is similar to that of other Antarctic ice shelves,(b)the resistivity of the ice-shelf surface, which is affected by the percolation and refreezing of melt water, is similar to that of deep ice and hence the ice is polar in character. A compilation of published resistivities of deep ice from polar regions shows that the range of resistivities is very narrow (0.4 –2.0) x 105 Ω m between –2 and – 29°C, irrespective of the physical setting and history of the ice. Typically, resistivity is within a factor of two of 80 kΩ m at –20° C with an activation energy of 0.22 eV. In contrast, the resistivity of surface ice at Wormald Ice Piedmont, where the ice is at 0°C throughout, is two orders of magnitude higher and falls at the lower end of the range of resistivities for temperate ice. read more
