One of them, Omar Al-Ghul (photo), was arrested on 14 December. The other, Munir Abu Rizq, the Gaza bureau chief, was arrested yesterday.“For the past six months, there has been a progressive muzzling of the media in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip,” the press freedom organisation said. “Journalists critical of the Islamist party are being hounded. Al-Hayat Al-Jadida’s employees should not be used as scapegoats in the struggle for power between the two parties.”On being arrested yesterday, Rizq was immediately taken to Al-Mashtal, the former headquarters of the intelligence services. The day before, his brother, Mou’in Abu Rizq, who also works for the newspaper, was questioned for two hours by the Hamas security forces. It was after the interrogation of Mou’in Abu Rizq that Al-Hayat Al-Jadida decided to close its Gaza bureau in protest against the harassment of its staff.Ghul, one of the newspaper’s columnists and an adviser to Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, has been held at Al-Mashtal for 33 days. His computer and several work documents were seized when he was arrested on 14 December at his home in Tal al-Hawa, in western Gaza.Hamas spokesman Taher Al-Nunu told Reporters Without Borders the arrests of the two men were “not linked to their journalistic activity” but he gave no indication of what they are charged with.Al-Hayat Al-Jadida journalist Hassan Duhan told Reporters Without Borders his two colleagues have not been allowed to receive visits from relatives or talk to a lawyer. He said there was no doubt in his mind that their arrests were directly linked to the many reports published in the newspaper about acts of violence in Gaza by the Executive Force, the Hamas militia.Created in 1995, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida has a circulation of about 3,000.

Streets give way to play with new summer initiative

first_img Keeler said blocking traffic at each location would free parents from worrying about their kids’ safety. “We want more people using the parks, we want more kids outside, so for these hours, cutting down on traffic and the possibility of accidents seems like a good idea.”The plan was approved by the city’s Board of Public Works on Tuesday after Keeler collected signatures from neighbors indicating their support. The board unanimously passed a resolution allowing the street closures on a trial basis, noting that neighbors would be responsible for setting up and removing barricades and that permission could be revoked at any time.Streets Alive! is a model for Play Streets, with both blocking traffic to bring neighbors together. (Ithaca Voice file photo)Marshall McCormick, who sits on the BPW and lives on Fair Street, said he’s excited about the opportunity to bring neighbors together.“We have two kids and hang out with the neighbors quite a bit,” he said, “but Play Streets is a unique plan and program that provides a really safe space to come and hang out.”He said the stretch of park along South Titus is a beautiful area, “but you lose 30% of it because you’re worried your kids are going to run into the street.” By stopping vehicle traffic, he said, “you get to use the full amount of the park without worrying your kids are going to go over the curb.”McCormick said the project will boost the whole neighborhood, including households without kids, by bringing people together. It’s a chance to learn, for instance, if an elderly neighbor needs help with yard work or dog walks, or if a family dealing with an illness could use meal deliveries or carpools. “It’s getting us together so we can help each other out,” he said.The Play Street dates on Madison Street will coincide with Just Play Days in Conway Park, from 10 to 4 p.m. each Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from July 9 until the end of August. Teens from the Ithaca Youth Bureau’s Youth Employment Service will be on hand as “playworkers” to supervise the kids who come outside. Just Play Days staffed with playworkers will be held at the same time on the Southside in Wood Street Park, at Wood and Fair Streets.Correction: A previous version of this story stated that the first Play Streets date on South Titus would be July 7. The correct date is June 30.Featured image: The South Titus triangle park (Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice) Devon Magliozzi ITHACA, N.Y. — This summer, the Just Play Project is encouraging Ithaca’s kids to take to the streets. As part of a broader mission to encourage safe, inclusive, creative play, the organization is launching a Play Streets initiative to stop traffic along two of the city’s smaller parks on designated afternoons.The pilot program will work like a recurring block party in Ithaca’s Southside and Northside neighborhoods. Starting June 30, neighbors on South Titus Avenue will put up barricades at Fair and Plain streets to extend the park that runs along Six Mile Creek from noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. Across town, neighbors will do the same on Madison Street between Fourth and Fifth streets to expand Conway Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. The goal is to bring kids outside, in keeping with Mayor Svante Myrick’s declaration that Ithaca is a free-range kid city.Related: What is a ‘free range kid city’? Parents weigh in at community discussion“As soon as those barricades go up it’s just this relief, you just feel free!” said Rusty Keeler, co-founder of the Just Play Project.Keeler said that as he and Just Play Project co-founder Beth Myers thought about ways to make space for play, they were inspired by Streets Alive!, which closes streets to traffic to create shared space for neighbors to hang out. Keeler said he and Myers wondered, “How could we do that on a more regular basis and on a smaller scale, on a neighborhood scale?”Southside Play Streets will divert traffic on South Titus Avenue. (Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice) Southside Play Streets will divert traffic on South Titus Avenue. (Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice)They both live near the South Titus creekside park and thought they could try to get a recurring block party off the ground in their own neighborhood. They chose the Madison Street block as a second location, in part, because of the success of a summer 2018 Just Play Day in Conway Park. During the event, Keeler said, kids from the neighborhood poured out from nearby apartments to play in the park.“It just felt like if that street were closed during those hours, it would be safer and it could be more fun and playful too,” he said.Related: Take to the streets for 14th Streets Alive!

Heavy rain causing concerns in West, wintry threat to eastern US at end of week

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — With 3 inches of rain already fallen in the San Francisco Bay Area, a new more powerful storm is approaching the West Coast.Numerous flood, wind and snow alerts have been issued from California to Colorado.The powerful storm is in the Pacific on Wednesday morning and getting closer to the West Coast — landfall should be Wednesday afternoon and into Wednesday night.Very heavy rain is forecast for parts of California, and the threat for mudslides, rockslides and flooding will increase. Powerful winds will accompany the storm, gusting to as high as 100 mph in the mountains.Snow accumulation will be measured in feet not inches, with some areas in the Sierra Nevada getting almost 6 feet.Meanwhile, the first in a series of storms that hit the West Coast earlier this week will reach the Midwest Wednesday night and bring some light snow. It will reach the Northeast by Thursday night and deliver a few inches of snow from Philadelphia to New York City and Boston. At this point, about 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible along Interstate 95 Thursday night, so the Friday morning commute could be slick.The stronger western storm will move into the Midwest on Friday night into Saturday, bringing snow from Oklahoma to Ohio. Several more inches of snow are possible with this storm.The storm will move into the Northeast by Saturday night with a mix bag of precipitation in the I-95 corridor. Heavy snow is expected from Ohio into western Pennsylvania and from upstate New York into New England. Several feet of snow is expected there on Sunday.Behind the storm, the coldest air of the season will move into the Midwest and Deep South. There will be wind chills below zero in the Midwest — and teens into Dallas.These arctic wind chills move into the Northeast on Monday and Tuesday.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Global property portal reaches 100,000 listings including 11,400 in UK

first_imgA fledgling free-to-list residential and commercial property portal says it has secured 20,000 listings in the UK including 11,400 homes for sale and rent over the past five weeks.The London-based portal has revealed a clutch of signings by well-known estate agents including Balgores Property Group, Carter Jonas, hybrid agency easyProperty, online-only agency Open House and The Mayfair Office. The rest of the approximately 150 agents featured on its website are small and medium-size independents.Residential People’s aim is to become a global property portal and it has 100,000 commercial and residential property listings including those from its UK operation.Its other sites are in South Africa and the UAE and the company has plans to open listings in China, India and Nigeria.“Agents are starting to take note of our unique, global proposition which is aimed at disrupting the market and going against the status quo of the traditional property portal model,” says Christopher May, a co-director of Residential People (left).“The hard work has just begun but we are overjoyed with the positive response from agents so far.“Most of the agents that have contacted us see us as a valuable addition to their online presence and we are honoured that they can see the value we are adding to the industry.”Before establishing Residential People, and its sister site Commercial People, May was a director of a Knightsbridge-based company helping finance property purchases for wealthy clients called BlueSky Capital Solutions, which voluntarily ceased trading last year.residential people property portal Christopher May April 5, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

UK: HMS Bulwark Lands Royal Mariners

first_img View post tag: Bulwark Share this article UK: HMS Bulwark Lands Royal Mariners View post tag: lands HMS Bulwark has landed Royal Marines from 42 Commando on the shores of Norway for NATO’s winter war games, Exercise Cold Response.As well as putting commandos onto the snow and shingle near the Norwegian port of Harstad, Bulwark landed their counterparts from the Netherlands and the USA, and equipment and vehicles, not least BV tracked vehicles (which are perfectly suited to operations in the Arctic), and the ‘Beast’ recovery vehicle – the Royal Marines’ ultimate ‘tractor’ capable of shifting anything if it gets stuck on the shoreline.Beyond serving as the UK’s flagship, Devonport-based assault ship Bulwark is the lead ship for Cold Response, a Norwegian-run exercise for NATO and allied nations. From Bulwark’s viewpoint, the training, which sees her in charge of an international naval force operating in the fjords around the Arctic port of Harstad, will ensure she remains ready to conduct a wide variety of tasks around the world in any climatic conditions. March 19, 2012 “My ship is phenomenally versatile and in this exercise we act as the hub to bring together all the units that make up the modern-day complex battlefield,” Captain Burton added.“Taking the fight ashore from the sea using helicopters and boats is not for the amateur but I have a ship’s company of complete professionals. For us it’s what we do.”Following Cold Response, Bulwark will undertake a similar role in another international amphibious exercise in the waters around Scotland.And the ship will be off Weymouth and Portland for the bulk of the summer, acting as a floating command centre for the security mission surrounding Olympic and Paralympic sailing events being staged in the bay.Meanwhile, helicopter carrier HMS Illustrious is returning to Portsmouth on Sunday following her participation in Cold Response.She successfully carried out amphibious helicopter operations in extreme conditions. It enabled the completion of vital training for all members of the ship’s company and helicopter crews.Illustrious is returning to complete the repair of two small holes caused when one of four tugs came into contact with the ship’s starboard quarter while assisting her to berth at Harstad on 9 March. An investigation is being conducted.The holes are well above the waterline and do not affect her seaworthiness or safety. No-one was injured in the incident.Initial repairs were carried out by the ship’s engineers and, while she could have continued to participate in Exercise Cold Response, the decision was taken to return her to Portsmouth so that the repairs could be completed to ensure that her future programme is not affected.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , March 19, 2012; Image: royalnavy Back to overview,Home naval-today UK: HMS Bulwark Lands Royal Mariners View post tag: Navycenter_img View post tag: Royal The fleet flagship has two key roles: to act as the command and control hub for all task group activity and to put men and machines ashore (currently marines from the UK, US and the Netherlands) by sea via landing craft or by air using Fleet Air Arm helicopters.Amphibious operations remain the most complex operation any nation’s military can undertake, as Bulwark’s Commanding Officer, Captain Alex Burton, explained:“It is not simply park the ship and offload it. In war – and therefore in training – we have to take account of the environment, enemy forces in the air, sea and on land, co-ordinate people into boats and naval helicopters, all to arrive on target, in the right order, at the right time, to achieve the battle-winning effect.“Few navies deliver this successfully and most aspirants look to the Royal Navy, Royal Marines and Fleet Air Arm, with our war-proven capability, for guidance – on the sea, in the air and on the land.” Ahead of the landings, Bulwark was positively brimming with Royal Marines, having embarked an extra 90 Green Berets from HMS Illustrious who were transferred to the flagship by Sea King helicopter.Never an easy manoeuvre given the amount of equipment the commandos carry in their Bergen packs on their backs, the Arctic weather added to the challenges air and flight deck crews faced (operations were temporarily suspended on Monday when a snowstorm swept through the fjords), and the marines had to wear their bright-red watertight suits when flying over the ocean to protect them should the Sea Kings have to ditch.They didn’t, thankfully, but the whole transfer took the three aircraft from the Commando Helicopter Force several hours.Once aboard Bulwark the new arrivals found accommodation rather austere, calling corridors, passageways and camp beds their home – although, unlike the 320-strong ship’s company, they’re only aboard temporarily; for short periods, Bulwark can accommodate more than 650 troops: View post tag: Naval Training & Education View post tag: News by topic View post tag: HMS View post tag: Marinerslast_img read more
