Last week, for the first time, the price of WTI crude oil fell below zero. This sent tremors through the oil market. Oil stocks around the world plunged in value as investors reassessed their outlook for the sector.Over the past few days, the oil price has stabilised. However, some oil stocks continue to trade at depressed levels. This suggests there may be bargains in the market for long-term investors.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Oil stocks on offerOil’s price volatility has hit related stocks of all shapes and sizes over the past few weeks. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely that all of these businesses will be able to weather the storm. Many oil businesses went into the current crisis with a lot of borrowing. It’s going to be difficult for some of these companies to renegotiate lending terms with creditors, or raise new funds.Some of these companies may also struggle to cut costs. Asset sales are another option. But I doubt these groups will be able to get good deals, especially with oil prices continuing to be weak.Still, while some companies might struggle to survive, others could prosper over the long term.Survivors The sector’s most significant oil stocks, such as BP and Shell, have highly diversified operations. Both companies have large trading and refining businesses, which buy oil for processing and selling.A lower oil price could mean lower costs for these businesses, which could translate into higher profit margins. That would offset losses in the production side of the business.Low-cost oil producers with strong balance sheets may also be suitable investments in the current period. These businesses should be able to remain solvent until some normality returns the oil market.Its unlikely normality will return in the near term. But with many producers on edge, over the long run, prices may surge. If the oil price crash causes a wave of bankruptcies within oil stocks, supply will fall. This could help stabilise the market in the near term as the coronavirus crisis continues to weigh on oil demand.Supply and demand However, when the global economy emerges from the crisis, demand should begin to increase rapidly. As it takes months or even years to restart closed oil projects, its could be some time before supply catches up with demand.To put it another way, the current oil price crash may lead to higher oil prices in the medium to long term. That could be good news and lead to significant profits for producers still in business.As such, now could be an excellent time to buy a selection of oil stocks at low prices. Some companies may be able to make it through the crisis and come out stronger on the other side.As it’s impossible to tell at this stage which companies will succeed and which will fail, buying a basket of stocks may be the best way to reduce risk while profiting from the potential upside at the same time.

Mumia Abu Jamal is hospitalized with no visitation or contact

first_imgMumia Abu-JamalThe following is a March 30 press release from the Philadelphia International Action Center, which works with MOVE, the Campaign to Bring Mumia Home and others to free Mumia Abu-Jamal. The contact for the release is Betsey Piette, 610-348-8017.At 1 p.m. EDT today, political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal had a medical emergency, and was taken to the Intensive Care Unit at Schuylkill Medical Center in Pottsville, Pa.Wary of events such as the recent death of MOVE leader Phil Africa, who passed away under suspicious circumstances at the State Correctional Institution at Dallas, Pa., in January, supporters of Mumia immediately travelled to the hospital to learn more about his condition. Mumia’s brother, Keith Cook, who was part of a delegation to the Pennsylvania Capitol today to challenge the Revictimization Relief Act, which denies First Amendment rights to Pennsylvania prisoners, was not allowed to visit his brother. Even Mumia’s spouse, Wadiya Cook, has received almost no information and has not been allowed to visit Mumia.In an attempt to learn more about Mumia’s condition, around 15 supporters of Mumia [were] feet away from Mumia’s hospital door at the Schuylkill Medical Center; yet four police officers [stood] in their way [blocking] the answers they seek. Hundreds of supporters have called SCI Mahanoy Superintendent John Kerestes. This led Kerestes’ office to turn off his phone line, forcing concerned people to leave messages.Mumia’s life is in danger. We encourage media and people concerned with Mumia’s health to contact the following individuals and institutions responsible for the health care of Pennsylvania prisoners and demand answers and family visitation rights in this urgent case.Please call in reference to Mumia’s legal name, “Wesley Cook,” and his identification as prisoner #AM 8335.Richard EllersDirector, PA Department of Corrections Health Care [email protected](717) 728-5311John WetzelSecretary, PA Department of Corrections(717) 728-4109Schuylkill Medical Center(570) 621-4000SCI MahanoySuperindendent John Kerestes(570) 773-2158As soon as we know more, we will be sending out an updated release to the media.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Prison sentence quashed but journalist’s libel conviction stands

first_img AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts May 18, 2021 Find out more News Read in Arabic / بالعربيةOn 7 July, an appeal court in the eastern city of Annaba quashed a two-month prison sentence for libel imposed late last month on Fatma-Zohra Amara, a journalist with the newspaper Akher Sâa. “Although we are admittedly relieved that the prison sentence has been quashed, we condemn this latest ruling which has upheld the original libel conviction, coupled with a fine and damages, imposed on this journalist, who was only fulfilling her duty of informing the public,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We consider the sum involved, totalling 120,000 dinars (about 1,200 euros), to be disproportionate.” Related documents Freedom of information still a concern after 50 years of independence – In ArabicPDF – 1.16 MBPrison sentence quashed but journalist’s libel conviction stands (In Arabic)PDF – 54.64 KB A semblance of pluralism and independenceIf you just take a quick look at all the newspapers on sale at the newsstands on Didouche Street in Algiers, you might conclude that the print media are prospering and enjoy real freedom of expression. No fewer than 80 newspapers, mainly Arabic-language ones, are available on the streets of the capital.But freedom of expression and the situation of the print media or the media in general cannot be measured by the number of newspapers on sale. Many of them are published by businessmen linked to the government and intelligence services. According to a 12 June report by the United Nations rapporteur on the promotion and protection of the right to freedom of opinion and expression (LINK to English-language version), fewer than six newspapers are really independent in Algeria. to go further Newspaper mailboxes at the House of the Press in eastern Algiers, October 2009, Reporters Without Borders Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections The case was the result of a lawsuit brought by the former administrator of a hospital in Annaba who was accused of sexual harassment by an employee. According to the daily El Watan, “in common with other daily newspapers, the Akher Sâa journalist only reported the facts as they occurred”.Algeria has been sending contradictory signals on its legal approach to matters of press freedom. The authorities made known their desire to scrap prison sentences for press offences when parliament approved Law No. 12-05 on information at the end of 2011.Despite this, the legal system appears to have disregarded this change of direction up to now, for example in sentencing the journalist Manseur Si Mohammed to prison for libel in May. In practice, the defamation provisions in the criminal code remain in force.Reporters Without Borders calls for their repeal, and for the decriminalization of press offences to be carried out effectively and properly.———————————————————————04.07.2012 – Freedom of information still a concern after 50 years of independenceRead in arabic / بالعربيةReporters Without Borders would like to shine a spotlight on freedom of information in Algeria on the 50th anniversary of the country’s independence. Algeria won its independence from France on 5 July 1962 but, 50 years, later, its media are still not independent. The entire nation is being asked to join in celebrating this anniversary but there are journalists who will not be able to respond because they are threatened, are being prosecuted or are in prison.Working as a journalist now – less dangerous, more complexAround 100 journalists were murdered during the decade-long civil war from 1991 to 2002 but nowadays the problems are very different and no journalists have been killed in connection with their work for years. It is not easy to be an independent journalist now in Algeria, a country marked by corruption and nepotism, a country where the military and the Intelligence and Security Department (DRS) occupy a privileged position. Journalists in Algiers are protected by their news organizations but the situation is different far from the capital – there is much less protection and the dangers are real. While it is not as bad as it was in Ben Ali’s Tunisia, journalists who criticize powerful local officials are hounded and sometimes jailed.Journalists and newspapers are often subjected to financial, judicial, physical or psychological harassment or encounter technical difficulties with printing and distribution. RSF_en News Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeriacenter_img The opening-up of broadcasting is one of the main proposed reforms in a new law on news and information. Privately-owned TV stations will compete with the four state-owned channels. For the time being, the end of the state’s broadcasting monopoly is still very notional because, under an additional proposed bill governing broadcasting, the creation of new TV channels must be agreed with a new regulatory authority that has yet to be created. Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation News ENTV Organisation April 29, 2021 Find out more News Follow the news on Algeria Help by sharing this information May 12, 2021 Find out more While judicial proceedings against journalists or media may be slowed down or even “forgotten,” the threat of a judicial decision subsequently emerging constitutes a threat that forces journalists to censor themselves.Reporters Without Borders has compiled the following partial list of recent cases involving newspaper reporters and local correspondents that illustrates the severity of sentences being imposed on media personnel:Fatma-Zohra Amara of the regional daily Akher Sâa was sentenced to two years in prison and a fine of 20 000 dinars (200 euros) in a libel case on 26 June. She was also ordered to pay 100,000 dinars (1,000 euros) in damages. The case was the result of a lawsuit by the former administrator of a hospital in Annaba (600 km east of Algiers), who was accused of sexually harassing an employee. Amara wrote a story detailing the evidence presented at his trial. According to Agence France Presse, she has appealed against the sentence.A libel case was brought against Manseur Si Mohamed – the chief of the French-language daily La Nouvelle République’s bureau in the northwestern city of Mascara and head of the local branch of the Union of Algerian Journalists – in connection with a story published on 20 December 2011 accusing the head of the Mascara tax office of failing to comply with a Council of State ruling rescinding her decision to demote a senior employee. During the first hearing, on 6 May, the Mascara prosecutor requested a sentence of six months in prison and a fine of 50,000 dinars (500 euros). Mohamed was finally sentenced on 20 May to two months in prison and the requested fine.The wali (chief government official) in Guelma (450 km east of Algiers) filed a complaint with the local prosecutor’s office on 19 June accusing Al-Watan correspondent Karim Dadci of libel and “false information” in a story in that day’s issue criticizing the construction of a lavish 13-hectare amusement park on the site of a massacre of Algerians by the French colonial forces in May 1945, a project approved by the authorities on 14 September 2011. Police went to Dadci’s home on the morning of 19 June to give him a summons without offering any explanation. He has since been questioned by the Guelma judicial police.Reporters are sometimes also the targets of intimidation attempts. Illiès Benabdeslam, Carrefour d’Algérie’s correspondent in Mostaganem (50 km east of Oran), was threatened by an associate of the mayor of Stidia (a locality 15 km outside Mostaganem) last month after reporting allegations that the mayor and his sons had attacked a local businessmen and tried to abduct him. No one has charged with threatening Benabdeslam. Reporters Without Borders urges the authorities to identify the person responsible. According to article 126 of Law No. 12-05, “degrading actions or offensive comments against journalists while they are exercising their profession” are punishable by a fine of 30,000 to 100,000 dinars (300 to 1,000 euros).Photo : AFP July 9, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Prison sentence quashed but journalist’s libel conviction stands Foreign-owned TV stations also need to be accredited in order to be able to begin broadcasting in Algeria. It is surprising that some, such as Annahar TV and Echourouk TV, are already operating out of studios based abroad and in Algiers although the fact that they have a pro-government editorial position seems to explain how they managed to get accreditation.Continuing vigilance is needed as there is a danger that the new privately-owned TV stations will all end up being owned by powerful businessmen with close links to the political elite and the armed forces, in which case, ending the state’s monopoly of broadcasting would change little and would fail to boost media pluralism.The print media, which have been pluralistic in principle since the 1990s, continue to suffer from monopolistic practices, especially as regards printing and distribution. Most are dependent on state-controlled printing houses (such as the Société d’Impression d’Alger) and distribution networks, and the state acts as it sees fit, deciding arbitrarily which publications will be printed and distributed.Advertising is also used to pressure the media. Created in December 1967 and operational since April 1968, the National Publishing and Advertising Agency (ANEP) allocates advertising on behalf of state agencies and companies. State advertising is a major source of funding for the print media and strings are always attached to its renewal. Private sector advertising often comes from companies that support the ruling political elite and is above all channelled to newspaper that kowtow to the military and DRS.So it is easy for the government to throttle critical newspapers economically. This has led to attempts by a number of publications to emancipate themselves from this tutelage. But the authorities can always fall back on another feared weapon – tax adjustments. This is a threat constantly hanging over independently-minded newspapers.Disappointing law reformAs the UN special rapporteur says in his report, “the current legal framework is still restrictive.” Despite the promises given by the authorities when Law No. 12-05 on information was being drafted, freedom of expression and the right to information are not sufficiently guaranteed.As soon as it was adopted on 14 December 2011, it was slammed by opposition parties, journalists and human rights groups. Throughout the drafting process, its critics had felt that the government was not listening to them, and when it went before parliament, all of the opposition’s amendments were rejected.Although article 2 of the new law says that “news reporting is a freely exercised activity,” it immediately restricts this activity by subjecting it to 12 catch-all conditions including respect for “national identity,” “economic interests” and “public order.” These restrictions also apply to the electronic media (article 71).Many of the law’s provisions restrict freedom of information in a disproportionate manner. They include article 112 on the right of “any person or entity” to respond to articles “attacking national values and national interest,” article 123 on “causing offence to foreign heads of state” and article 119 on “publishing a document that violates the confidentiality of a judicial investigation.”The law imposes many obstacles on publishing and the creation of media. Article 11 says that anyone is “free to publish a periodical” but it nonetheless stipulates that publications require official approval. Too many restrictions are also placed on foreign publications, which are subject to the communication ministry’s control.As the special rapporteur’s report says, “there should be no official or de facto mechanisms of authorization beyond notification to state institutions.” A number of labour unions and NGOs have filed a notification of their intent to publish a newspaper under article 4 of Law No. 90-07, but they have been unable to proceed because the authorities refuse to issue them with the required receipt. Algeria’s authorities should follow international standards on launching new publications. Prior restrictions are unacceptable.While the proposed creation of a regulatory authority is positive in principle, questions persist about its composition, independence and extent of its powers. According to article 50, three of its members, including the chair, will be appointed directly by Algeria’s president, two will be appointed by the national assembly speaker, and two will be appointed by the speaker of the national council (senate). The other seven members will be elected by absolute majority from among professional journalists with at least 15 years of experience. Like the special rapporteur, Reporters Without Borders fears it will end up restricting media freedom even more.Continuing danger of imprisonmentLaw No. 11-14 of 2 August 2011 decriminalized defamation of government officials by amending articles 144 (b) and 146 of the criminal code. Similarly, Law No. 12-05 on information abolished prison sentences for media offences. This should have ended the threat to journalists posed by articles 144 (b), 146 and 77 to 99 of the criminal code, but the fines are disproportionate and articles 296 and 298 of the criminal code maintain prison sentences for defaming individuals.So the legislative progress is only notional. Since the decriminalization of media offences in January, journalists have received sentences ranging from fines to jail terms in the course of prosecutions. “Journalists should not be subject to criminal prosecutions,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Judges must do their duty and apply the new media law by excluding the provisions of the criminal code.”last_img read more

COA: Man’s Actions Waived Right To Speedy Trial

first_img COA: Man’s Actions Waived Right To Speedy TrialOlviia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comAn Indiana man convicted of multiple felony drug charges lost his appeal of his lack of a speedy trial because his actions, including his failure to object to a later trial date, waived his right to such a trial, the Indiana Court of Appeals ruled Friday.In Lawrence Benton Roper v. State of Indiana, 53A04-1607-CR-1691, Lawrence Roper was charged with various drug-related felonies, as well as a charge of felony possession of a firearm by a serious violent felony and being a habitual offender. Roper, proceeding pro se, verbally requested a “fast and speedy trial” at a hearing on June 25, 2015.The parties appeared in court on Aug. 27, but the pre-trial hearing was continued to Sept. 24. At the September hearing, Roper, again proceeding pro se, requested a continuance because he had hired counsel the day before. As a result of that request, Roper signed a motion for continuance that contained a waiver of his right to a speedy trial under Criminal Rule 4.At a subsequent hearing on Nov. 19, Roper moved for another continuance of the trial, which was then reset for Feb. 22, 2016. When Roper requested a third continuance in January 2016, the trial was moved to April.At the April trial, a jury found Roper guilty of four of his six charges, and he pleaded guilty to being a habitual offender and waived his right to be sentenced within 30 days. But one month later, Roper moved to discharge his conviction, arguing the Monroe Circuit Court had failed to bring him to trial within the Criminal Rule 4(B) timeframe.The trial court denied Roper’s motion. On appeal, he argued the court had erred by doing so. But the Indiana Court of Appeals disagreed, with Judge Melissa May writing in a Friday opinion that Roper “made no effort to object or otherwise bring any violation of that speedy trial request to the court’s attention until after he was convicted in April 2016.”“He waffled about whether he was going to retain counsel at his initial hearing, at his bail review hearing, and at the hearing on August 27, 2015,” May wrote. “That August 27, 2015, hearing was mere days before the time limit would expire on Roper’s speedy trial request, and yet Roper did not object to the resetting of that hearing to date past his speedy-trial deadline.”“Furthermore, at the hearing following the expiration of the seventy-day deadline (under Criminal Rule 4(B)(1)), Roper signed a written Motion for Continuance that included a waiver of his right to a speedy trial under Criminal Rule 4,” May continued. “Roper’s conduct is inconsistent with a desire to have his case tried in a speedy manner, and acted, in conjunction with his other actions, as a waiver of his Criminal Rule 4(b) request.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Ocean City Seafood Festival Reels in Hungry Crowds

first_imgThe Ocean City Seafood Festival is a popular fall attraction. By Donald WittkowskiKim Thomas and her family were having what could best be described as a smorgasbord of seafood on Sunday.“I got everyone a little bit of everything,” Thomas said with a hearty laugh while glancing at her crowded food tray.There were clam fritters, a crab cake platter, clam chowder and lobster bisque soup for starters. Thomas noted that her husband, Pete, would probably go back for clams.And why not? When you visit the Ocean City Seafood Festival, the idea is to eat as much stuff plucked from the sea as possible – whether it’s fried, broiled, grilled, steamed or served raw.Kim and Pete Thomas are regulars at the seafood festival, making it one of the highlights of their annual weeklong fall vacation in Ocean City. They estimated they have attended it about 15 years in a row.“It’s the atmosphere,” Kim Thomas said of why her family enjoys the event so much. “We know we can get seafood on the street, but by coming here, it makes it special.”Pete and Kim Thomas, of Atco, N.J., visit the seafood festival every year, making it one of the highlights of their weeklong fall vacations in Ocean City.The Thomases, who live in Atco, N.J., were joined by about eight family members at the seafood festival Sunday. On Saturday, they were among the estimated 50,000 people who attended the Ocean City Fall Block Party, a hugely popular shopping, dining and entertainment event that unfolds on the Asbury Avenue retail corridor.Events such as the seafood festival and block party are designed to boost the local economy after Labor Day. Although the town begins to slow down after the summer tourists head home, the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce sponsors a series of special events in the fall to draw the visitors back.The seafood festival, for instance, was one of the centerpieces of the city’s Indian Summer Weekend celebration, which is spread out on the Boardwalk and in the downtown shopping district along Asbury Avenue.Normally a venue for concerts, the Music Pier on the Boardwalk was transformed into a giant makeshift grill of sorts for the seafood festival. Local vendors were busy taking orders from the hungry crowds lining up at their booths in front of the Music Pier.Corey Farrell, a cook at Spadafora’s Seafood Restaurant, a well-known local eatery, said the festival helps to enhance Ocean City’s reputation as a place for fresh, high-quality seafood.“People have been coming down here for many, many years and they know what is good seafood. Much of it is word-of-mouth,” he said.Spadafora’s sold a lot of clam chowder, lobster bisque soup, shrimp salad subs, crab cake sandwiches, oysters and clams at the festival, Farrell noted.Eleanor Dalotto, left, of Jackson Township, N.J., and Lois Wright, of Old Bridge, N.J., enjoy their seafood meals and an oceanfront view at the Music Pier.Friends Lois Wright, of Old Bridge, N.J., and Eleanor Dalotto, of Jackson Township, N.J., saw a promotion for the seafood festival in a magazine and decided to give it a try as part of a day trip to Ocean City.Wright and Dalotto enjoyed oceanfront views from the outdoor balcony of the Music Pier while savoring their shrimp salad, oysters and clam chowder.Calling the seafood excellent, both women said they will consider returning next year for the festival.This year, they not only wanted to check out the festival for the first time, but there was another reason for them taking a Sunday trip to Ocean City.“She wanted to get away from all of the football,” Wright said of Dalotto.last_img read more
