Stock markets in the US and UK jumped, taking equities back to the time when Lehman Brothers was just another big investment bank.One may argue that higher equity prices are justified, with corporate earnings beating forecasts – but the resurgence of the past few weeks has nothing to do with fundamentals and only a bit to do with the US mid-term elections. Its overwhelming driver was the Fed’s announcement (and prior to that, the expectation) that it would buy more government bonds. Yet America’s misguided QE2 policy will merely continue to fuel the bonds bubble, driving down yields to irrational levels and reversing the re-pricing of risk. Thursday’s 5.3 per cent decline in the Vix index, Wall Street’s fear gauge, was irrational. Several emerging market economies said the Fed’s move made any substantive deal on cutting global economic imbalances less likely at next week’s G20 meeting in Seoul. Developing countries also threatened fresh steps to curb capital inflows which are pushing up their currencies against the dollar. Brazil said it would use the G20 meeting as a forum to complain about the Fed’s decision. The Chinese were also predictably irate. In South Korea, the minister of finance and strategy said it would “aggressively” consider controls on capital flows; Turkey’s economy minister, where the central bank has been buying foreign exchange to curb appreciation of the lira against the dollar, said the Fed’s policy might backfire. Thailand raised the possibility of concerted action to combat the flood of investment dollars that are pouring into emerging markets. The Indians muttered veiled warnings. Even the Germans slammed the decision. The whole thing is turning into a disaster and whipping up protectionist sentiment. Why is nobody listening?In truth, some are: the CRB index of commodities hit its highest level in over two years, the greenback fell and the price of gold surged. All of these are typical inflation hedging signs. In a note last night, Charles Dumas of Lombard Street Research went as far as to predict that QE2 will actually cut US GDP by pushing up food and energy prices, reducing domestic demand.It is imperative that we start to wean ourselves from our addiction to cheap money. QE2 is creating another false market in government bonds just when we need to normalise finance and price risk properly. The Fed is the problem – not the solution.NO HAND OUTI have a lot of time for Guy Hands but his decision to sue Citigroup over its role in his takeover of music giant EMI was a bad error of judgment. Rather than trying to shift the blame, he should have taken responsibility for his disastrous decision. He borrowed billions to buy the firm at the height of the bubble, even though the entire industry is being undermined by technological change (though EMI isn’t doing too badly at the moment). It was always hard to know how a US jury would rule, especially in the current anti-finance climate – on the one hand, a dreaded Wall Street giant, on the other, an equally despised buy-out firm led by an Englishman. But yesterday’s decision against Hands was a breath of fresh air. He should stop grumbling and get on with trying to rescue his troubled [email protected] last_img read more

Stock market crash: I’d follow these three investing principles to make money

first_img Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Will the 2020 stock market crash be followed by another? Many pundits are predicting it will. This should be unsurprising to a serious investor as a large market sell-off is always a possibility. Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Stock market crash: I’d follow these three investing principles to make money Rachael FitzGerald-Finch has no position in any of the shares mentioned. The Motley Fool UK has no position in any of the shares mentioned. Views expressed on the companies mentioned in this article are those of the writer and therefore may differ from the official recommendations we make in our subscription services such as Share Advisor, Hidden Winners and Pro. Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. See all posts by Rachael FitzGerald-Finch Rachael FitzGerald-Finch | Thursday, 6th August, 2020 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!center_img 1. Be ready to buyIdeally, every investor buys shares low and sells high. However, realistically, you can’t tell in advance on which days you should buy cheaply or sell on a peak. Even top equity analysts can’t predict the future, no matter what the hype says.Consequently, keeping some money to one side for the inevitable market crash, or single share sale, could be a wise move. You may not buy at the bottom of a trough or at the top of a peak, but you can look to purchase a good company at a great price that will help to optimise your future returns.  2. DiversificationIt’s said that the really big money is made from concentrating your stock-picking efforts into a single industry or company. Think Bill Gates of Microsoft or Sir James Dyson of Dyson.However, you only need to look at the movements on the Sunday Times Rich List to conclude that this doesn’t always work. People change places all the time! If you keep all your investments in one place, you may gain initially, but it won’t protect you from the creative destruction that can happen across the stock market. As one industry gains momentum, another may flounder.It’s wise to diversify your portfolio across industries. That way, the shareholder returns of one investment may offset the loss on another. And as investor Seth Klarman says: “The avoidance of loss is the surest way to ensure a profitable outcome.” This is because the effects of compounding even moderate returns over the long term are substantial.3. A ‘foreign policy’ to avoid a market crashInvesting in foreign stocks is certainly not mandatory for a well-diversified portfolio. However, I would say it’s advisable.If you’re living and working in the UK, and you’re paid in sterling, you’re effectively betting on the UK economy. But it’s not always wise to keep all your money at home. Nobody knows what the future holds anywhere in the world. Putting some money into foreign stocks, such as into the US stock market, may help to insure you against the risk of putting all your money into one single economy.Stock market crashes and share price volatility are par for the course when investing. To make money as a successful investor, you manage the risk by buying good companies at great prices within a diversified portfolio. In 1929, the market crashed due to over-valued shares, low wages, and high debt, resulting in the Great Depression. 2008 was a similar story with loose credit, high debt, and reckless speculation leading to the market righting itself. A global economic shutdown is the reason behind the recent 2020 market crash.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…However, whatever the cause, the point is that market crashes happen relatively frequently. So a plan to deal with them is a key part of a successful investment strategy. Accepting volatility is a necessity if you want to benefit from the potential returns a market crash can offer. It’s worth your while to prepare in advance if you want to make money and following these three investing principles could help.

2019 Rugby World Cup Quarter-final: New Zealand 46-14 Ireland

first_imgRuthless New Zealand clatter Ireland in Tokyo on their way to another semi-final Ardie Savea stole a ball straight out of the ruck, fed a darting Dane Coles and he put through George Brisdge for a try. Then Ireland scuttled up the other end and worked infiled until Todd gave away a penalty try for throwing his body between CJ Stander and the base of the post – no tackle was attempted.New Zealand got the last word with Beauden slinging a long, looping, left-to-right pass to brother Jordie for the seventh try.Saying goodbye: Ireland’s skipper and hooker Rory Best (Getty Images)Star ManAnton Lienert-Brown in not underrated or overrated. He is rated. He is custom built for this All Blacks back line.Sevu Reece had so many blockbuster moments, Smith’s zip of delivery and quickness of thought around the fringes was frightening and Kieran Read was colossal. But players are needed to tie all of this together. Lienert-Brown is capable of brilliance, for sure – he can dance through, as he showed in the 71st minutes – but it is how he communicates, stitches passes together and assuredly makes his tackles that sees him picked out among his peers.The reactionNew Zealand coach Steve Hansen: “Both the defence and the attack were good. ‘Stormy’ (assistant coach Scott McLeod) has done a wonderful job this year and got them going well (in defence) and Fozzie (assistant coach Ian Foster) has got the attack going really, really good, and is coaching probably the best I’ve ever seen him coach.” 2019 Rugby World Cup Quarter-final: New Zealand 46-14 IrelandHead-to-HeadPlayed – 32New Zealand wins –29Ireland wins – 2Did you know?Ireland have never made it past the quarter-finals at the Rugby World Cup.Ireland got their first win against New Zealand in Chicago, in November 2016. Ireland won 40-29.New Zealand had won a World Cup record 17 successive matches until their pool match against Italy was cancelled and went into the record books as a scoreless draw.The All Blacks need 41 points to become the first team in World Cup history to reach 2,500 in the competition.Conor Murray and Johnny Sexton start together for the 56th time, breaking the all-time record of 55 for Ireland, set by Peter Stringer and Ronan O’Gara – the current duo first played together  in Ireland’s opening game of the Rugby World Cup 2011, against the USA. The Irish front row also start together for the 17th time.In a nutshellAfter being gifted a 22-point lead and a steady stream of possession, New Zealand never looked back. The weight of history brought the night falling around Ireland as their World Cup ended again at the quarter-final stage.More than that, thought, it is the end of Joe Schmidt’s reign as boss.There have been undeniable highlights during their association, with three Six Nations titles and a Grand Slam, as well as two wins – the first ever wins – over the All Blacks. But they couldn’t lay a glove on their fabled opponents in Tokyo.New Zealand played with direction, pace, and certainty of purpose.Keeping a hand in: Ireland steal a lineout (Getty Images)Their first try was a product of hard, rout-one carries. Joe Moody, Sam Whitelock and Sam Cane tied in defenders with their hit-ups before Aaron Smith – spotting that no guard had come to stand near the ruck – bolted over for the first try.He was at the double after a sweeping move from set piece. Wing Sevu Reece passed to Jack Goodhue, got it back on the wrap-around and shot the pass to George Bridge on the wing after drawing the defence. After the surged upfield, Jacob Stockdale came off his spot to compete for the ball illegally. Smith saw the vacancy in the corner and burrowed over.Ireland continued to sock away. Peter O’Mahony stole a lineout and snaffled a turnover. Conor Murray kept up the rhythm and the front-five wanted the ball. But the All Blacks were ruthless and feasted on errors.Sexton had a penalty kick to the corner that Mo’unga jumped to keep in, for example. And then the fly-half was caught out in attack. Later, Reece came off his wing to hit the Leinster star, dislodging the ball in the hit. Mo’unga fly-hacked it ahead and Beauden Barrett raced away to get a third score.Pressure kept telling for the All Blacks and the fourth came again from relentless carries with the arm, but when Smith hit Read, the talismanic No 8 popped the ball up from his back and hooker Codie Taylor crashed over, under the posts.Burrowing: Aaron Smith scores in the corner against Ireland (Getty Images)It didn’t let up. Reece tore away from a Beauden Barrett crossfield kick and after cutting in field, sub scrum-half TJ Perenara could hit Matt Todd at first receiver and he pummeled his way to the line.The Irish fans were afforded the opportunity to give one of the teams true servants a standing ovation as retiring captain Rory Best took his leave on the 63rd minute, alongside Sexton. It is a day he will want to banish from his memory, but his was a career to be proud of.In his absence Ireland worked forward and after a Joey Carbery grubber was dropped over the line by Robbie Henshaw, the centre made amends a few phases later as he sliced through for a first Irish try, with the clock nearing 70.It all got busy in the final minutes. Ireland coach Joe Schmidt: “I don’t have an excuse or a reason for it. You can’t afford to give the All Blacks points. It was a bit flat, on the back of having a few niggles. We were not sure of the team until Thursday. I thought we needed to get off to a good start and if we didn’t we would be a bit vulnerable.“Before the third try we had really good space but we didn’t quite put things together, we spilled that and the All Blacks scored. You have to make them work for everything. In the past we had forced them to do that even when we lost against them.“Then we were chasing the game and if you are chasing the game against the All Blacks you are going to give them opportunities and that is exactly what we did.”The TeamsNew Zealand: Beauden Barrett; Sevu Reece (Jordie Barrett 62), Jack Goodhue (Sonny Bill Williams 53), Anton Lienert-Brown, George Bridge; Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith (TJ Perenara 60); Joe Moody (Ofa Tuungafasi 48), Codie Taylor, Nepo Laulala (Angus Ta’avao 48), Brodie Retallick (Matt Todd 57), Sam Whitelock, Ardie Savea, Sam Cane (Scott Barrett 40), Kieran Reid.Tries: Aaron Smith 13, 20, B Barrett, 32, Taylor 48, Todd 60, Bridge 73.

Courtesy photo[Episcopal News Service] When Bishop José McLoughlin of Western North Carolina was young, he had his heart set on a career in law enforcement. Informed by his Roman Catholic upbringing, he wanted to pursue organized crime as a prosecutor, maybe get involved in politics, and “change the world” by working for justice.“I was really drawn to law enforcement, and then ultimately the priesthood, because of humanity – because of the wonderful, joyful, frustrating, annoying mess that is humanity,” McLoughlin told Episcopal News Service.A college professor who had previously served as a sheriff encouraged McLoughlin first to “put a face on the people that you would serve” by becoming a police officer, and after a ride-along, he was “hooked.” At the age of 21, he began a 13-year career in law enforcement, first as a deputy sheriff in Orange County, Florida, near where he grew up in the Orlando area, and then in various capacities at the U.S. Department of Justice, striving to bring compassion into difficult situations and make policing more just.Now 51 and a bishop, McLoughlin gets emotional when he talks about the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and about the ambush killings of two police officers responding to a report of a fight at a home in McAllen, Texas, in July.“Man, I couldn’t be an officer right now,” McLoughlin said.The Rev. Gayle Fisher-Stewart during her days in the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia, pictured with Assistant Chief Tilmon B. O’Bryant. Courtesy photoHe and the Rev. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, a former captain in Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department, spoke to ENS about their perspectives on policing and race as clergy who previously worked in law enforcement. Fisher-Stewart, who is Black, and McLoughlin, who is Latino, have both participated in “Reimagining Policing in America,” a webinar series from the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing that features panel discussions on the systemic problems in American law enforcement and possible solutions.The Rev. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, right, and the Rev. Peter Jarrett-Schell, rector of Calvary Episcopal Church in Washington, D.C., pose for photo under a Black Lives Matter banner in 2016. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceFisher-Stewart has also presented the “To Serve and Protect” webinar for the Union of Black Episcopalians, focusing on the racist origins of American policing and its evolution over time. Fisher-Stewart is the interim rector of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Washington, where she grew up. A previous church she served, Calvary in Washington, was one of the first Episcopal churches to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement. She has edited “Preaching Black Lives (Matter),” a theological anthology, and has taught criminal justice at the University of Maryland. She also serves as a chaplain to the Takoma Park, Maryland, Police Department and has given similar presentations to police officers.She starts the webinar by presenting “four guiding principles” that provide the basis for what she is about to say and asks all attendees to “assent” to them – agreeing to at least consider them, even if they do not agree with them:– The United States is a racist country.– Racism is baked into the DNA of the United States.– American policing is the enforcement arm of a racist society.– Police officers are also victims of a racist society.“What happens when we say this – people get a little uptight. They get a little offended,” she told the attendees, but stressed that she was referring to institutional racism and not accusing individuals of being racist. “As part of this process, we have to be able to talk about policing and its function without it pointing to us as individuals, because if it points to us as individuals, then we’re not able to hear what we need to hear.”Although officers may still balk at such statements, Fisher-Stewart, who retired from the force after 20 years in 1992, has the clout to back them up.“Because of [my] experience, I have more credibility with the officers than a civilian would,” she told ENS.“I walk a thin line between being a member of the community, a former police officer and the mother of a Black son and aunt to Black nephews and nieces and a critic of American policing.”When she entered the force at age 20 in 1972, she was well aware that the department had a racist reputation, but the job would help her pay for school. Most officers, she said, sign up with good intentions but many “become infected with the racist underpinnings of policing” and get hooked on power.“Initially, it’s like an aphrodisiac, having that power, knowing that people will do what you tell them to do, for whatever reason,” she told ENS. “But after a while, you become aware of some things that you really don’t like.”She was bothered by the number of people being arrested – giving them a record that could change the trajectory of their lives – for things that could be resolved in other ways. And there was the outright racism.“It was in your face and nobody cared,” she said, giving an example from when she was a rookie and her white training partner said something with a straight face that disturbed her.The Rev. Gayle Fisher-Stewart, second from right, being promoted to a lieutenant in the Metropolitan Police Department of the District of Columbia.

And I’m not paying any attention because you just stop a car because you want something to do. But when it got to be my turn to drive, I went to stop this car. He said, ‘Why are you stopping the car?’ I said, ‘Uh, because that’s what we do.’ And he said, ‘We don’t stop white people.’ And I was like, ‘Do you see who’s sitting here?’”McLoughlin said that in recent weeks, he has looked back over his time as an officer, replaying memories in light of the current debates over policing in America, but doesn’t remember ever witnessing “what I would call an outright abuse of power.” He was always bothered, though, by officers disparaging and cursing at suspects.“That always used to just drive me nuts,” he said.He agrees with Fisher-Stewart that “the vast majority of people who go into law enforcement do it because they feel they have a sense they want to serve.” At the same time, he said, “it’s important to say there are bad cops. There is no doubt about it. There are bad priests. There are bad teachers.”And like Fisher-Stewart, he is deeply aware of systemic racism in policing.The Rt. Rev. José A. McLoughlin addresses the congregation during his ordination and consecration as bishop of the Diocese of Western North Carolina. Photo: Chris Goldman/Diocese of Western North Carolina“The history of policing is such that, if you look at it, I mean, it was to control Black people,” McLoughlin said. “I mean, let’s just be honest. When you really look at policing in its earliest forms and how it developed, it has that systemic racism running in it. Are all cops bad? No. Are all agencies racist? No. But it is the concept and the approach and the underlying things that got us there. Is it historically racist? Absolutely.”When he watched the video of George Floyd being killed, he was “beyond nauseated.”“I was so emotionally angry,” he told ENS. “Not only did it make me sick to see a human being get murdered by a police officer, but it made me so angry to see somebody in a uniform that I used to take such pride in do so much damage to the integrity of so many men and women who risk their lives.”McLoughlin has been disturbed by the polarization and demonization surrounding debates about policing in America and says “you don’t have to choose one side.”“We have to recognize murder is murder. Racism is racism. There is systemic racism. Black people are significantly more at risk of getting killed and having violent interactions [with police],” he told ENS. “But we don’t have to sacrifice good people who really are working hard to protect the community and really are absolutely sickened by what they’ve seen. We’ve got to find the balance, and the church has to be the one to bring voices into a room to say, ‘Stop the name-calling, stop the generalization and let’s really work hard on how we’re going to bring solutions.’”McLoughlin and Fisher-Stewart agree that today’s police are being asked to do too much, but they differ on the effectiveness of reforms and retraining. McLoughlin “support[s] the idea of pulling a lot of functions away from law enforcement” and believes training can be refined and enhanced to redirect police forces toward solving problems in their communities.“We don’t have to sacrifice good strategies and good solutions to figure out how we help law enforcement,” he said.Fisher-Stewart has less faith in reforms and would like to see actions more in line with Camden, New Jersey’s total overhaul of its police force, which was eliminated and rebuilt from scratch.“Overall, I’m for abolishing the police as they were created and continue to act,” she told ENS. “Does that mean I want no police? No, it doesn’t.”Like McLoughlin, Fisher-Stewart sees a common thread running through her desire to improve law enforcement and her vocations as a priest.“I draw my source from the Gospel of John, 18th chapter, where Jesus has been arrested and he’s brought before the high priest and the high priest is questioning him,” Fisher-Stewart said. “This is the equivalent of his arraignment. And when he does not act, when he does not respond in a way that people think he should, he is actually hit in the face by the temple police. That is the first recorded act of police abuse. And it’s on the body of Christ. And so if we don’t stand up because the people of God are treated negatively, then we’re saying it was OK to treat Jesus like that.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

This prefabricated house was already featured before, but now we present some more detailed material shared by the architects. Designed by MYCC, built in three months and assembled in three days, this vacation house located in the Galician municipality of Cedeira is a good example of the many possibilities that modular construction, up to now associated with catalogue houses, offers today.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApavisaMetal 2.0SkylightsVELUX CommercialModular Skylights – Ridgelight 25-40°StonesCosentinoSilestone® Sunlit Days SurfacesThe program demanded by the client, along with the unique site of the house and modulation and transportation needs of prefabricated construction, inspired the design of this house built by the young Madrid studio MYCC, formed by Carmina Casajuana, Beatriz G. Casares and Marcos González. Save this picture!The house is located on a steep slope, in a remote location in the northeast corner of the Iberian Peninsula, an area dominated by the imposing presence of the ocean and the slender forest of eucalyptus trees surrounding it. The terrain is surrounded by harvest fields, family farms and pitched roof houses. This image, protected by the area’s building codes, determined the geometry of the house that, simplified up to the point of evoking the basic house, was conceived as an autonomous piece that sits as a landscape observer and that speaks, with new terms, about the traditional language of the place. The volume was wrapped with two materials with the purpose of setting up a dialogue with the landscape. The roof and the side facades were covered with Viroc®, a prefabricated mixture of cement and wood shavings that, because of its gray color, recalls the wood of eucalyptus trees. This fibercement has a great strength efficiency in spite of being light and, therefore, is easy to maintain and move. The two main facades of the house were clad with perforated Cor-ten trays following the schematized image of a forest silhouette, recreating the image of the surrounding vegetation. This material was chosen because it is part of the local tradition of fishing towns like Cedeira, used for the construction of boat hulls, and the gradual and controlled oxidation of which gives the material self-protecting qualities. Its patina and changing color create a lively image that relates with the natural environment. This interplay between the natural and the artificial also benefits the interior spaces, where the light that crosses through these silhouettes casts shadows of trees in the different rooms.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGBeing a vacation house, the interior spaces are free-flowing and open up to the unique landscape, turning it into the protagonist. The six modules that make up the house, of approximately 6 meters in length and 3 in width (the maximum reasonable width to enable their transportation by trailer) organize the program as follows: the first one contains the bedroom, which can be divided into two thanks to a blind concealed in the ceiling, and which becomes a partition wall when more rooms are needed; the second contains the bathroom and stairs; the third the kitchen; and the last three the living room. The top floor, under the roof flaps, houses an attic that is a free-flowing space with a double facade that opens up to the sea views towards the southwest and to the forest towards the northeast. It is a space that flows out onto the living room without a designated use, and that can perform as a guest bedroom, tai-chi room or playing area for kids. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe house combines two different systems: prefabricated construction (2D) for the attic and modular construction (3D) for the ground floor. The modules were built in the facilities of the construction company IDM in the Madrid town of Valdemoro. These modules were built with a structure of beams and galvanized steel columns and with floor and ceiling slabs of composite decking with reinforced concrete. The facade walls are dovetail sandwich panels formed of two sheets of lacquered aluminum and an 80-millimeter-thick polyurethane web plate. Several layers of waterproofing stretch beneath the furring strips to which the exterior facades are fixed. Towards the interior, a ventilated air cavity of 20 centimeters lets the structure go through, and there is a perimetral panelling of plasterboard with 46 millimeters of rock wool. The result is a 30-centimeter-thick wall with a ventilated facade cavity, interior cavity and 12 centimeters of total insulation. After an assembly trial in the factory, and after making sure that everything fit in properly, the different modules and trusses of the building were taken apart to be packed and moved in trailers the whole 700 kilometers separating the factory from the remote seaside site where its was to be installed. All the parts were put together again on the designated site in just three days, and the finishing touch-ups were done in the following two weeks. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe end result is a high-quality product, designed with high standards of energy efficiency and whose manufacturing entails a contribution to environmental balance, because the generation of polluting residues and emissions is controlled. The very name of the piece stresses its main assett: a house that is manufactured, not built. Something that reminds us of the efficient chain production of the industrial warehouse, covered and controlled, unlike traditional construction that is at the mercy of external elements that can affect the construction process. One could say that this type of manufacturing moves towards a sustainable architecture which makes a responsible use of the limited resources available.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessUpdate: Imagine the MississippiArticlesIn Progress: Nanjing Museum of Art & Architecture / Steven HollArticles Share Architects: MYCC Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/70220/prefabricated-nature-mycc Clipboard “COPY” CopyHouses•Cedeira, Spain Houses ArchDaily ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/70220/prefabricated-nature-mycc Clipboard Projects Prefabricated Nature / MYCCSave this projectSavePrefabricated Nature / MYCClast_img read more

Unprecedented offensive against the media

first_img RomaniaEurope – Central Asia May 28, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Unprecedented offensive against the media May 26, 2021 Find out more News Romania: In an open letter, RSF and ActiveWatch denounce judicial pressures on investigative journalists following a complaint from a Bucharest district mayor News Reporters Without Borders appealed today to Romanian President Ion Iliescu and prime minister Adrian Nastase to stop attacks on the national and foreign media orchestrated by the authorities, who accuse them of giving the country a bad image and waging an “news war” against Romania.”This fierce anti-media campaign is tarnishing Romania’s image much more than the stories themselves,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard in letters to the two leaders. “The defence ministry’s wish to monitor the media’s behaviour can only strengthen observers’ doubts about the country’s ability to draw closer to Euro-Atlantic organisations. “We remind you that respect for press freedom and basic rights is one of the conditions for membership of these bodies. We ask you to make every effort to ensure that journalists can freely exercise their right to inform the public,” he said.The daily newspaper Jurnalul National, reproduced a document on 28 May bearing the letterhead of the Supreme Defence Council (CSAT), entitled “Plan to Counter Attacks Against Romania” and accusing the media of “harming the country’s reputation” and paying “too much attention to corruption scandals, rackets concerning people-smuggling and international child adoptions.”The extracts quoted by the paper said “the government must find the hostile Internet websites networks and take action against them with effective technology.” The document proposed setting up a nationwide system to combat harmful images of the country which would involve CSAT and all government ministries and agencies (including the intelligence services), as well as establishing a “national centre to monitor media behaviour” run by the president’s national security adviser, Ioan Talpes, formerly head of Romania’s foreign intelligence service. President Iliescu, who heads CSAT, at first denied there was such a plan but later admitted the authorities were preparing to discuss one. Information minister Vasile Dincu said he had “helped draft the plan” but then withdrew his remark.Threats and pressure by the authorities against Romanian and foreign media have increased in recent weeks. After an article in the French daily Le Monde on 22 May by its Bucharest correspondent, Mirel Bran, headed “Is Romania ready to join NATO?”, the government secretary-general, Serban Mihailescu, threatened to prosecute Bran and charged in the press that he was in the pay of Romania’s enemies.The article, which mentioned Mihailescu’s nickname, “Mickey Baksheesh,” questioned whether the country could meet the criteria for NATO membership in view of the tradition of corruption and the continuing power of the secret police from communist days, the former Securitate. It also mentioned threats against journalists by defence minister Ion Mircea Pascu. He had warned newspapers that reprinted a 30 April article by the US newspaper The Wall Street Journal suggesting NATO distrusted the Romanian secret police, that “life is too short to waste on tiresome discussions.”Foreign minister Mircea Geoana protested in writing on 15 May to the French TV station TV5 for broadcasting a programme on 6 and 7 April called “24 Hours in Bucharest,” in which homeless young people were seen living rough at Bucharest railway station and children were shown rummaging through a dustbin in the southwestern town of Petrosani. The minister criticised what he called the “dubious choice” of some topics and deplored the fact that the programme “did not manage to show Romania’s cultural richness” and that its producer refused to interview prime minister Nastase.A law curbing press freedom presented by defence minister Pascu was recently passed by the chamber of deputies and is due to be considered by the senate. The so-called “right of reply” law would oblige media to publish a “reply” within three days of publication of material on pain of a fine between three and 100 million lei (_3,180).

first_imgNews UpdatesCourt Functioning & Advocates’ Safety Amid COVID: P&H Bar Council Seeks ₹100 Crore Financial Help For ‘Needy Advocates’ Sparsh Upadhyay2 May 2021 9:46 PMShare This – xImage Courtesy: bcph.inIn view of the Surge in COVID Cases, the Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana in its emergent meeting held on Friday (April 30) has decided to take some steps with regard to the functioning of the Courts and safety of Advocates in Punjab, Haryana & Chandigarh. Resolution No. 1 The Council acknowledged the “acute shortage of steroids, oxygen requirements, ventilation care etc.” and that “even hospitals are flooded to full occupancy contributing to the heart-wrenching death toll.” It was also observed that due to semi-functional Courts, the advocates are finding it difficult to support their families and that if any suspension/lockdown was imposed on Court working again, it would be extremely difficult to regain the lost ground and restart functionality. It was also apprised to the House by Mr.Minderjeet Yadav, Chairman that more than 100 advocates (daily growing) have unfortunately died due to Covid-19 infection and countless frantically seeking hospital admissions and help in Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh emphasizing that urgent steps need to be taken to ensure their safety, healthcare and security. The House was also apprised of the media report stating that more than 100 Judicial Officers and 400+ employees/court staff have been tested positive of this lethal strain. The Council thus resolved to immediately write to the Chief Justice apprising him of the current situation and request him to take appropriate steps as per his wisdom and available expertise to safeguard the health and safety of all advocates and their families. The Council has further resolved not to insist on physical hearing of the cases and only most urgent cases be heard during this unprecedented situation at least for 15 days because this is the only way to break the transmission of Covid-19 to safeguard Hon’ble Judges, Officers, lawyers, paralegal staff, Court employees, and litigants. Resolution No. 2 It was resolved to request the Election Tribunal to consider the prevailing circumstances of pandemic and keep their order in abeyance of holding elections in the Bar, till the time the situation improves. Resolution No. 3 The Council has resolved to impress upon the respective governments of Punjab, Haryana, and U.T. Chandigarh to allocate Rs. 100 Crores to Bar Council of Punjab and Haryana, to provide financial help to the needy Advocates. Thus, it was resolved to write to respective State Governments for release of 50 crores each to Bar Council of Punjab & Haryana, Chandigarh as has been done in the State of Delhi and Karnataka, so that the young and stricken Advocates who are suffering due to Covid-19, Further, Atul Nanda, Advocate General, Punjab was requested to immediately release one crore from Trustee Committee (Punjab) as Covid Fund as given by Haryana and he graciously accepted to take up the matter with the Government of Punjab, on priority. The Council further authorized the Chairman to meet, apprise and represent to H.E. The Governor of Punjab (also the Administrator of U.T Chandigarh) and both the Hon’ble Chief Ministers in this regard. Furthermore, it was resolved that the Council will start a 24*7 helpline to provide ready coordination and logistics support to all advocates and their families who require any assistance due to Covid-19. The Council will also contemplate on the possibility of converting the Law Bhawan Office at Chandigarh as a tertiary medical care center with primary medical centers connected to each district and sub-divisions (with ambulance facilities) exclusively for advocates and their families. The Council also resolved to start an awareness campaign/movement amongst advocates and their families under the tagline ‘Advocates – Break the Chain’ focused on minimizing laxity and Covid-19 inappropriate behavior.
