After an exchange of words, the guards attacked reporter Salah Abu Za’tar, cameraman Mus’ab Ali Al-Harari and driver Abdelfatah Mansour Mohammad Al-Danouni, breaking four of Danouni’s teeth and two of Harari’s teeth and leaving them with bruises and contusions.Although congress issued a formal apology and promised to punish those responsible, no concrete and effective measures have so far been taken to protect journalists and fully guarantee freedom of information.Reporters Without Borders is worried by the frequent recurrence of threats, including death threats, against Libyan journalists, which are often but not solely made by semi-official armed groups or religious groups. Such threats constitute serious violations of media freedom.Reporters Without Borders therefore urges the authorities to do whatever is necessary to provide Libyan journalists and foreign journalists working in Libya with unconditional protection.

The new location provides a strategic location directly across from the Miami-Dade County Courthouse and is located only a few blocks from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.The two Van Ness South Florida locations are located within 43 miles of three major courthouses in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade, which account for almost 30 percent of all foreclosures filed in the state. Van Ness also has associate attorneys located physically in the Gulf Coast and Panhandle areas in order to make sure that only law firm staff handles crucial litigation hearings, trials, and mediations.Van Ness, which opened in 2004, has always represented the mortgage servicing industry to include foreclosure litigation, creditor-side representation in bankruptcy, evictions, title, appeals and REOs. Prior to entering private practices, the firm’s founder, Tony Van Ness, worked at both Ocwen Federal Bank FSB (now Ocwen Loan Servicing) and Bayview Loan Servicing.“I feel my servicing roots provide a unique perspective into building a firm that servicing clients would want to facilitate,” Van Ness said. “Being one of the older foreclosure firms in Florida completing our 12th year, we have seen the complete cycle of the industry. Continually reinvesting in the firm, having no debt and keeping relatively small allows us to be versatile in this ever changing industry.

Britain’s Most Advanced Warship Hones Skills in Crete Before Heading Through Suez

first_img View post tag: Most View post tag: Britain’s View post tag: through February 1, 2012 Britain’s Most Advanced Warship Hones Skills in Crete Before Heading Through Suez Britain’s most advanced warship is enjoying her first foreign port on her maiden deployment as she gears up for seven demanding months east of Suez. HMS Daring is making full use of the NATO ranges at Souda Bay – used by all Royal Navy warships to fine tune ships and ship’s companies before heading to the Middle East.The NATO base on the Mediterranean island is home to FORACS (FORces sensors and weapons Accuracy Check Site) which tests the myriad of sensors, communications, radars and sonars to ensure they’re in full working order, allowing NATO ships to pass crucial information to each other accurately.Royal Navy warships have been using the ranges at Souda Bay since 1984.The NATO complex at Souda is also home to the Maritime Interdiction Operational Training Centre, whose pièce de resistance is a former Hellenic Navy training ship, the Aris, now used to allow visiting ship’s companies to hone their board and search skills – for board and search will be at the heart of Daring’s seven-month deployment.The Type 45 destroyer’s RN and Royal Marines boarding team took their training to the next level courtesy of ‘simunition’ – simulated ammunition, which possesses most of the characteristics of the real thing, minus the blood – vessel clearance drills and practising approaching pirate vessels.As this is Daring’s first tour of duty there’s considerable interest in all the ship does – from a sizeable media turnout (to say nothing of loved ones) when she left Portsmouth earlier this month, to a bevy of high-profile visitors.Chief among the latter was the head of the Hellenic Navy, Vice Admiral Kosmas Christidis, who belatedly took up an offer made by his British counterpart three years ago to look around Britain’s first Type 45 destroyer.The admiral and his staff were given a comprehensive tour of the 8,500-tonne warship, as was  Cdre The Hon Michael Cochrane, Commodore Portsmouth Flotilla whose responsible for all Pompey-based warships and visits as many as possible on deployment to see how they’re faring and to talk with the ship’s company.In Daring’s case, she’s fighting fit. Literally.  As well as being Britain’s first Type 45 destroyer, crammed with 80 per cent of equipment that’s new to the Royal Navy, she’s also the first to receive the new Spartan Rig (which seems quite apt as she’s in Greece presently…).The rig is being tested by Daring’s physical training instructor LPT Simon Radford and the ship’s company as part of a trial ahead of a new ‘strength test’ which will be introduced into the Royal Navy in January 2013.Also on the ‘fit for life’ front, the ship’s football team managed to get ashore for a match against Souda Bay Naval Base.In an epic confrontation (the ship’s description, not ours) Daring were victorious 2-1.LS(AWW) Adam Sommerville, one of the goal scorers, said:“It was a tough match against a well-worked-up side, we were really grateful for the game and it was a good chance to get ashore during the busy programme”.As for his Commanding Officer Capt Guy Robinson, as well as hosting numerous visitors, he’s been soaking up the Mediterranean ambience.“It is a great experience to be operating Daring away from UK waters.  “Seeing her silhouetted against the dramatic Cretan skyline is a moving sight and one that the whole ship’s company have been delighted to see.”Once through Suez, Daring will carry out a wide-ranging mission: maritime security, counter piracy, working with Coalition and regional navies and generally building on the Royal Navy’s long-term efforts to maintain stability in the region.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 01, 2012; Image: royalnavy View post tag: Heading Training & Education Back to overview,Home naval-today Britain’s Most Advanced Warship Hones Skills in Crete Before Heading Through Suez View post tag: Hones View post tag: beforecenter_img View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Suez View post tag: Naval View post tag: Crete View post tag: skills View post tag: Warship View post tag: Advanced Share this articlelast_img read more

Literary Festivals

first_imgConnie Han listens in rapture as Philip Pullman reads from his work at Woodstock Literary FestivalThe Woodstock Literary Festival is ‘a celebration of books, of all that is literary’. Set in the pretty village of Woodstock, a 20 minute bus ride from the city centre, it feels a world away from the bustling self-importance of the city. Armed with a Cherwell press pass, I go to just one of the many talks on offer, ranging from subjects as diverse as Diana Mosley’s personal letters to Biblical inspiration for sexual art. “And which talk would you like to attend?” asks the cheerful organiser in the Green Room. “Philip Pullman, please,” I say. “Oh, Philip? He’s just behind you.” And that is how I came to be talking about Milton with Philip Pullman. “You can’t just read Milton,” he tells me. “You have to read him aloud. You have to go into a secluded corner and read him loudly, or if you are embarrassed, in a whisper. But you have to say it. Poetry has to be tasted in the mouth.”  He quotes a long passage from Paradise Lost to me, from memory, savouring the beauty of the words, the esoteric descriptions, in an enraptured whisper. “That’s how you must enjoy poetry. It must be felt.”The sound of words is clearly important to Pullman. His talk is pleasant but unremarkable (tales about readers, and his wife’s struggle with computer voice recognition software, some advice to writers – ‘never start with a blank page in the morning’) until he begins to read. His reading voice is incredible, expressive, surprising. He chooses two passages with Iorek Byrnison, the Armoured Bear. The children in the audience are captivated by his rendition. His Iorek sounds like a Norwegian Russell Crowe: nothing like how I imagined him, but profoundly powerful and unique. Pullman complains that in the BBC radio version he wasn’t allowed to do the voice himself but then adds with childish glee that Ian Mckellen (‘that’s right!’) is involved in the new film (‘do you know who is doing Iorek? Gandalf!’) The appreciative crowd loves him. On the contentious subject of the film, Pullman is enthusiastic but gently ironic, (‘I’m glad to say they’re spending an awful lot of money on the fight scenes!’ ‘There are some fine actors doing it. Daniel Craig, he’s a very good actor, especially in swimming trunks’). At the end he gets bombarded with the usual questions. He takes care to answer those from children first. ‘What is your daemon?’ ‘Who inspired the characters of Lyra and Will?’ For your information: ‘my daemon, I think, would be one of those birds that steal things. All writers are thieves. Shakespeare was a thief.’ ‘All I know about Lyra and Will is that they are not extraordinary children. They are extremely ordinary. They are just in extraordinary circumstances.”  It is that sense of the extraordinary in the ordinary that has brought Philip Pullman to where he is, a best-selling author in 40 countries, climbing down from the stage to rapturous applause.last_img read more

Watch Portugal. The Man Play With Local Youth Chorus & Drumline On The Late Show

first_imgLast night, recent Grammy-winners Portugal. The Man made their way to the iconic Ed Sullivan Theater for a performance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The performance saw the band reach out to the local New York community for some support. They were joined by the BK Steppers, a Brooklyn-based program that aims to “develop a commitment to personal excellence in young people through innovative, quality performance arts education and practical experience in arts-related careers,” and the PS22 Chorus, the historically vibrant and over-achieving 5th-grade choir at Staten Island’s PS22.The chorus sang and danced with excitement as they basked in their opportunity to live in the moment on national TV, and the young but skilled drumline added an extra driving pulse to the tune. The performance on The Late Show coincided with the band’s full performance at Brooklyn Steel on Tuesday evening. Watch Portugal.
