Charlie Hebdo editor’s acquittal in Mohammed cartoon case hailed as positive for French society

first_img FranceEurope – Central Asia Reporters Without Borders hailed a Paris criminal court’s decision today to clear Philippe Val, the editor of the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo, of “publicly abusing a group of people because of their religion” by publishing cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed a year ago. The case was brought by the Paris Grand Mosque, the Union of Islamic Organisations of France (UOIF) and the World Islamic League.“The court’s verdict accords with the French republic’s values and is good for French society as a whole,” the press freedom organisation said. “We hail the judges’ finding that the limits of free expression were not exceeded in this case. This ruling is a victory for press freedom and in no way is a defeat for a community. We hope it will set a judicial precedent.”The UOIF announced that it would appeal, but the Paris Grand Mosque said it would not.The outcome of this key trial for the defence of press freedom follows a similar decision by Danish judges acquitting the editors of the Danish daily Jyllands-Posten, the first newspaper to publish controversial cartoons of Mohammed.In the French case, the three plaintiffs had demanded 30,000 euros in damages from Charlie Hebdo, while the French public prosecutor’s office had recommended acquittal. Val had additionally faced a possible sentence of six months in prison and a fine of 22,500 euros. As he left the court today, he expressed his satisfaction and confidence in the French judicial system, commenting: “We have been vindicated by the court.”Val had received strong backing not only from French journalists but also many politicians, including UDF presidential candidate François Bayrou and French Socialist Party leader François Hollande, who voiced their support for the weekly during the two-day trial on 7 and 8 February. Interior minister Nicolas Sarkozy, the UMP presidential candidate, had also indicated his support, commenting that he preferred “an excess of cartoons to a lack of cartoons.”The lawsuit concerned three of the six Mohammed cartoons which the weekly published on 8 February 2006. Two of the three had appeared in Jyllands-Posten in 2005. One of them showed Mohammed wearing a turban in the form of a bomb about to explode. The other showed him saying: “Stop, stop, we have run out of virgins.” The third, which was on the cover, was by French cartoonist Jean “Cabu” Cabut. It showed Mohammed with his head in his hands saying: “It is hard to be loved by idiots.” Help by sharing this information RSF denounces Total’s retaliation against Le Monde for Myanmar story RSF_en June 4, 2021 Find out more News March 22, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Charlie Hebdo editor’s acquittal in Mohammed cartoon case hailed as positive for French society News Receive email alerts May 10, 2021 Find out morecenter_img News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Follow the news on France Organisation FranceEurope – Central Asia June 2, 2021 Find out more News to go further Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EUlast_img read more

India can become the best team in Test cricket – Kohli

first_imgBy Amlan Chakraborty KANPUR, India (Reuters) – India have the resources to become the best team in Test cricket and the bumper home season would be a perfect opportunity to sow the seed of their ascendancy, captain Virat Kohli said yesterday.Kohli’s men embark on an important 13-Test season today when they take on New Zealand in the first match of the three-Test series at Kanpur’s Green Park Stadium.“We believe we certainly have what it takes to be the best team in the world,” the 27-year-old told reporters on the eve of what would be India’s 500th Test.“One area we have tapped into is belief. It’s something that a lot of young players can lack coming into international cricket.“It’s all about getting rid of that feeling … That’s the only way you can go out there, be confident and express yourself. Express how good you are, and that’s what this team have done.“More often than not if you’re fearless, the results will fall your way because you’re willing to take that extra risk in the course of the game. I certainly feel that this team have what it takes to be the best.”India’s poor record as tourists has been a home truth but under Kohli, the team have won series in Sri Lanka and West Indies to briefly occupy the top Test rankings before arch-rivals Pakistan snatched it.Kohli saw a gilt-edged opportunity to reclaim the tag in the big ‘career-defining’ home season which will also include Tests against England, Australia and Bangladesh.“This season is a phase where we can lay the foundation where the Test team will go,” Kohli said.“The challenge in the last one year or so has been to show composure and get the victories which we require and we have been able to get that. The important thing is to continue the same.“This season will be career-defining for all the people in the squad, because hardly have we played 17 Test matches regularly.“That’s something we are happy about, that we can plan our Test cricket, and back ourselves and get those victories whenever the chance comes. Very exciting times ahead.”Dwelling on the Test against New Zealand, Kohli praised the touring side’s fearless brand of cricket, which he attributed to former Kiwi captain Brendon McCullum.“Their mentality was cricket was not the end of the world for them, they just enjoyed the game,” Kohli said. “I think they have been able to detach themselves from those pressures and that’s why they have got successful in the last couple of years.”Indian paceman Ishant Sharma has been ruled out of the Test with mosquito-borne viral disease Chikungunya.last_img read more

Dodgers’ Rich Hill progressing, open to bullpen role in postseason if necessary

first_imgThe Dodgers-Cardinals game Wednesday will be a YouTube exclusive broadcast.ALSOAlex Verdugo was scratched from the starting lineup Monday, the second time in the past five days he has been a pre-game scratch. Last week, Verdugo had a sore left knee. This time, Verdugo’s back tightened up, an issue that has bothered him previously this season. Roberts said it was not “severe” but “we’re just staying away from him for a day.”UP NEXTCardinals (RHP Miles Mikolas 7-11, 4.00 ERA) at Dodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw 10-2, 2.85 ERA), 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), AM 570 “Yeah — any way to help,” he said. “Ideally, starting is the priority. But again, it all depends on how this is going to play out time-wise and how we can get built up.“It’s just the time frame and where we’re going to be at. But hopefully we do get built up to start. Either way, get back to pitching.”Pitching in relief during the postseason would require Hill to be able to pitch on back-to-back days. That would have to be tested in September.“That’s something else we’d have to find out,” Hill said. “We’ll have to probably make that decision at some point. If we’re in mid-September or September 20 just as an example, we can only get you to three innings and you’re not built up enough then maybe in those (last) 10 to 11 days that are in there, go back-to-back. That would make sense to me.”PreviousDodgers manager Dave Roberts during their game against the Cardinals at Dodger Stadium Monday, August 5, 2019.

Game time is 4 p.m. PT.Related Articles There is only one hitch — the calendar.The cautious pace of Hill’s rehab could leave him with limited time to build up as a starting pitcher before the end of the regular season. A healthy Hill could then become an option to fill a role in a postseason bullpen, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged.“We just want to let this process happen for Rich and get him as healthy as we can, understanding his health is most important for this year and beyond for him in his career,” Roberts said. “Where that is at the end of September, we will assess the role. He just wants to come back and contribute. With what he’s done for us in the postseason in years past, you know he can be a big-time contributor.“Where that puts him, at that point in time we’ll have the discussion when that time comes.”Hill (who hasn’t pitched since June 19) knows he will need a buildup similar to spring training — progressing from a 30-pitch outing up to 75 in 15-pitch increments, most likely.

SURGE IN EDUCATION COSTS HIGHLIGHTS PRESSURE ON FAMILIES – McCONALOGUE

first_imgFianna Fáil Education Spokesperson Charlie McConalogue has said the latest Consumer Price Index revealing yet another surge in the cost of education highlights the growing pressure on Donegal families.Charlie McConalogue TDAccording to the figures released by the CSO, the cost of education is 4.8% higher than it was this time last year and is one of the main contributors to the increase in inflation.Deputy McConalogue commented, “The cost putting a child through school and college is one of the greatest expenses facing any family. These figures show it has become even more expensive this year. “One of the main reasons for the increase is yet another hike of €250 in the college registration fee this month. Instead of keeping its promise to reduce the cost of third level education, this government has instead done one of its spectacular u-turns and introduced a series of rolling increases that will see the third level registration fees jump to at least €3,000 next year. The Education Minister Ruairí Quinn also cut student grants and abolished the post-graduate grant.”He said that as these costs continue to mount, more and more families will find they simply cannot afford the cost of putting their children through college.“The hikes and cuts in education are just one example of this government’s failure understand the pressures on ordinary families in Donegal. The last two budgets have hammered young families in particular, with cuts in child benefit, taxes on maternity benefit, cuts to the back to school clothing and footwear allowance, increases in utility bills and a new tax on the family home.“This attack on families must stop. As the government gets ready to announce next year’s budget, I am calling on Fine Gael to radically change their approach and start considering the needs of hard pressed families in this region.” SURGE IN EDUCATION COSTS HIGHLIGHTS PRESSURE ON FAMILIES – McCONALOGUE was last modified: September 13th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Charlie McConalogueeducation cutslast_img read more

Xbox One To Launch Exactly Eight Years After the Xbox 360—But After The PS4

first_img4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Related Posts 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnoutcenter_img Tags:#gaming#Microsoft#Microsoft Xbox#xbox one taylor hatmaker The release date for Microsoft’s new Xbox One is here at long last: November 22. The date primes Microsoft for the holiday season—you don’t say!—but also puts it a week behind rival Sony, which will launch its PlayStation 4 on November 15.Microsoft’s new console is now timed to launch on exactly the same day that its predecessor, the Xbox 360, went on sale in 2005. Symbolism is nice and all, but you have to wonder if losing a week to the competition is worth it. The Xbox One will launch in the United States and 12 other major markets, including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand. Given the prohibitive pricing and hardware longevity of a new gaming console, launch date strategy for game consoles isn’t quite the same intricate chess game that smartphone makers play. After Microsoft backtracked on several controversial Xbox One “features” to placate its core gamer consumer base, most hardcore gamers know which console they’ll be buying—ahem, the PS4— and they might have already pre-ordered it.For gaming manufacturers, console strategy is about building future-proof hardware and playing the long game. After all, the last console generation spanned eight entire years—an unthinkable longevity for almost any other kind of hardware.Pre-orders for both consoles have been open since Microsoft and Sony made their respective announcements. In August, Sony reported over one million cumulative pre-orders for the PS4 and Microsoft claims that pre-orders supply is selling out quick. In the U.S. Xbox One will be priced at $499, and it will sell for £429 in the U.K. and €499 in Europe. Sony’s PlayStation 4 is priced at a considerably cheaper $399,  £349 and €399, respectively. Last time around, Sony’s PlayStation 3 was the more expensive option, so the pricing flip-flop should set up an epic war befitting of the two most powerful gaming consoles ever crafted.Photo by Taylor Hatmakerlast_img read more

Gambhir will be dropped if he is unfit: BCCI

first_imgThe BCCI is in the process of analysing Gautam Gambhir’s medical reports and will drop the stand-in captain from the tour of the West Indies if he is found to be unfit.BCCI Secretary N Srinivasan said the Board had received the report submitted by Kolkata Knight Riders physio Andrew Leipus on Gambhir’s shoulder injury and a decision will be taken very soon. “We have received the report from Leipus and we are analysing it. We will take into account all aspects of the injury”, Srinivasan told PTI.”We are taking stock of the report and we will take a final decision once we are through with it. If we find that he is not fit, he will not go on the tour. We will then decide on a replacement”, he said.Gambhir, named captain of the team for next month’s West Indies tour, sustained the injury to his right shoulder during the World Cup final against Sri Lanka last month while taking a catch.The injury got further aggravated when Gambhir made a sliding stop during their last IPL league match against Mumbai Indians in Kolkata on May 22.Despite the injury, Gambhir played the eliminator match against Mumbai Indians yesterday and the move has now snowballed into a major controversy and sparked a debate on whether players are more keen to play in cash-rich events like IPL rather than the country.In case Gambhir is ruled out, Suresh Raina may be named captain for the ODI series against the West Indies.advertisementGambhir is still not sure how bad his shoulder injury is as he is still awaiting the result of MRI scan, done to measure the extent of damage.KKR’s physio Leipus, in his report to the BCCI, said Gambhir needs four to six weeks’ rest to recover fully, which means that the Indian opener could even miss the subsequent tour of England.- With PTI inputslast_img read more
