The result of an initiative by Eritrean journalists based abroad and supported by Reporters Without Borders, the station is offering freely-reported, independent news and information to Eritreans in Eritrea.“The glaring absence of independent news media in Eritrea convinced us to support this historic project,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “Only a few countries such as Burma, Turkmenistan, North Korea and Eritrea are subject to so much repression that there are absolutely no independent media.”Julliard added: “We are delighted that Radio Erena’s launch will enable Eritrean journalists in exile to resume working and to broadcast news to their compatriots that is different from the news they get from the state media.”The station’s editor in chief, Biniam Simon, said: “I have dedicated my life to the news media and information technology because I love people to be in touch with each other. Now I am happy because Radio Erena is going to link Eritrea with the outside world.” A former TV presenter, Simon fled Eritrea in early 2007 because he feared he would be arrested.Independent of any political organisation or government, Radio Erena is offering news, cultural programmes, music and entertainment. A network of contributors based in the United States, Italy, Britain and the Netherlands is providing the Paris-based staff with Tigrinya-language programmes that are broadcast via Arabsat’s Badr-6 satellite. Eritreans can tune into Radio Erena on the 11,785 Mhz frequency with vertical polarisation (SR 27500, FEC 3/4).The station’s programming will soon be broadcast on the Internet as well, so that the Eritrean diaspora will also be able to listen to it.Eritrea has had no free press since September 2001, when the few Asmara-based independent newspapers were closed down and their publishers and editors were arrested as part of a wave of round-ups ordered by President Issaias Afeworki. Since then, the only news available to Eritreans in their national language has been provided by the state media – Eri-TV, Radio Dimtsi Hafash and the government daily Hadas Eritrea – which are all closely supervised by the information ministry.Africa’s biggest prison for journalists, Eritrea has for the past two years been ranked last in the Reporters Without Borders index that measures the degree of respect for press freedom in a total of 173 countries. According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, there were at least 17 journalists imprisoned in Eritrea at the start of 2009. More than 20 other journalists have joined the list since a wave of arrests in February in Radio Bana and several other news media. In most cases, it is not known where they are being held.More information on press freedom in Eritrea Help by sharing this information October 27, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

How can I tell if my staff is keeping their business continuity plan up-to-date?

first_img 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr If you’re like most credit unions, you’ve worked hard to get your Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan into shape this past year. If you are an Ongoing Operations client, you’ve also updated your business impact analysis (BIA) and probably had a tabletop exercise. But what happens after the “formal” activities are over?How can you tell if your staff remains engaged in BCP planning?For the most part, if you are still relying on a paper plan it will be pretty tough for you to measure your staff’s participation in the planning process. Outside of the normal “sign in” sheets you might compile during regularly scheduled DR/BCP related activities (fire drills, shelter-in-place drills, tabletop, etc.) there really isn’t a way to see if the plan is being kept up-to-date.However, if you have an online plan (like CURecover) there are many ways to measure your staff’s activities (and as a result be able to demonstrate activity during an NCUA Audit):Check the web stats on your portal – One of the reasons we love SharePoint as our development platform is the built-in reporting functionality known as Web Analytics.

The 17-year-old from Royal Lytham and St Annes (image © Leaderboard Photography) defied winds gusting up to 35mph on the first day to post the low score of the tournament with a two-under 72 in the second round. Her score, combined with her opening 85, put her within one shot of the lead held by Ireland’s Gillian O’Leary. In the third and final round Emily moved ahead to secure the win, shooting 76 in blustery conditions, with  birdies on eight, ten, and 15 before she holed from 12ft on the last. The field included Irish Curtis Cup player Leona Maguire, who was unable to break 80 throughout the tournament and finished in a share of 10th place with scores of 82 83 80. Her twin, Lisa, a Curtis Cup reserve, was fourth. Already this season Emily has finished fifth in the English women’s amateur championship and helped England win the Vilmorin Cup at the French Lady Junior Championship.

Youth Tennis Coach Indicted Sexual Assault, Child Porn Charges

first_imgBy Jay Cook |FREEHOLD – A Colts Neck youth tennis teacher has been indicted on varying charges of sexual assault and other misconduct involving a student and other local children.A 15-count indictment was handed up by a Monmouth County grand jury on Feb. 2 charging Terry Y. Kuo, 26, of Colts Neck, according to a statement by Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.The charges against Kuo, who also went by the name “Victor Lee,” stem from a police investigation during the summer and fall of 2017 after a 13-year-old tennis student accused Kuo of sexual misconduct, said Gramiccioni.An investigation by the Marlboro Township Police Department and the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victim’s Bureau and Computer Crimes Unit allegedly turned up child pornography on Kuo’s electronic devices and improper conduct with other children, according to police.Kuo is scheduled to be arraigned on Feb. 20 before Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Vincent N. Falcetano.Kuo is represented by Mitchell Ansell, a criminal defense lawyer and partner at the Ocean Township-based Ansell, Grimm & Aaron, PC law firm.In an interview with The Two River Times, Ansell said his client refutes the charges.“On behalf of Terry and his family, he vehemently denies these charges,” said Ansell. “He plans on vigorously fighting these charges in court.”Ansell added, “There’s a lot more to this story than what’s been printed in the media.”Kuo was charged in the indictment with one count of first degree attempted aggravated sexual assault, one count of second degree attempted sexual assault, one count of first degree causing or permitting a child to engage in child pornography, one count of second degree manufacturing child pornography, one count of third degree possession of child pornography, one count of fourth degree lewdness, two counts of third degree aggravated criminal sexual contact, one count of fourth degree stalking, one count of second degree endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of third degree endangering the welfare of a child and two counts of third degree obscenity, Gramiccioni said.If convicted on the attempted aggravated sexual assault charge, Kuo could face up to 20 years in state prison. The sexual assault is punishable by up to 10 years.According to Kuo’s LinkedIn page, he is the founder and chief operating officer at ATS Tennis, 36 Artisan Way in Colts Neck, which Ansell confirmed. The address is also the location of the Colts Neck Racquet Club.Ansell said he expects the case to be heard within the next six months.“We’ll probably have a lot more to say as the case progresses,” Ansell said.Anyone with information is asked to contact either Detective Edward Ungrady of the Marlboro Township Police Department at 732-536-0100 ext. 1099 or Detective Shawn Murphy of the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-431-7160 ext. 7032.This article was first published in the Feb. 8-15, 2018 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

European Leagues: Barca, Bayern, PSG, Juve all win as Real are held at home

first_imgGriezmann scored twice in Barca’s win over Betis. (PHOTOS/Courtesy)With the Serie A now up and running, all the major five leagues in Europe are now in action.This past weekend produced less of shocks as most of the big boys registered anticipated victories in their respective fixtures.In Spain, defending champions Barcelona came from a goal down to register a 5-2 victory over Real Betis, their first of the 2019/20 campaign.Still without the injured Lionel Messi plus Luis Suarez and Osman Dembele, Barca suffered an early scare as they went behind to a Nabil Fekir goal on 15 minutes.However, they recovered to ensure that they are level by halftime through Antoine Griezmann. Griezmann added a second just after the break to turn the game on it’s head before Carles Perez, Jordi Alba and substitute Arturo Vidal all scored to see the home side take a 5-1 lead. Loren Moron pulled one back for the visitors but it turned out to be a mere consolation as Barca sealed their first victory of the season after two games.In the capital, Real Madrid were held to a disappointing 1-1 drew at home to Real Valladolid. After a tense opening 80 minutes, Karim Benzema broke the deadlock with 8 minutes to play but as Real tried to hold onto the victory, the visitors had other ideas. Sergi Guardiola equalized with just two minutes on the clock to silence the Bernabeu and hand his side an unlikely point in the end.For Real’s cross-city rivals Atletico, they moved joint top of the standings after scrapping to a 1-0 victory away to Leganes.As anticipated, it was a tough contest and Diego Simone’s side had to wait until 19 minutes from time before Vitolo scored the all-important goal that puts them second on the log.Sevilla like Atletico also still hold a 100% record after overcoming Granada 1-0 away from home on Friday. Joan Jordan scored the only goal of the night 7 minutes into the second half. This is the second victory in as many games since the start of the league two weeks ago.Elsewhere in Spain, Levante came from behind to beat Villareal 2-1, Celta Vigo bounced back from their opening day defeat to overcome Valencia 1-0 at the Abanca Balaidos while Sociedad were 1-0 winners at Mallorca.The other four games in the La Liga all ended in draws.In the German Bundesliga, Bayern Munich bounced back from an opening day 2-2 draw at home to Hertha Berlin, defeating Schalke 3-0 at the VELTINS Arena.Star striker Robert Lewandowski continued his fins start to the season, scoring all three of the Barivians’ goals. The Pol now has five in two games having also scored a brace on opening weekend.Lewandowski scored a hat trick this past weekend.In the same game, Philip Coutinho who had joined Nico Kovac’s side earlier in the week, came off the bench 12 minutes into the second half, to replace Thomas Muller.As Bayern were registering their first victory, rivals Dortmund were also winning away from home.Lucien Favre’s side who came into the game top of the standings came from a goal down to defeat newly promoted Koln 3-1. Jordin Sancho, Ashraf Hakimi and Paco Alcacer scored the goals for Dortmund who still hold a 100% record after two games.Four other sides hold the same record as Dortmund; Freiburg, RB Leipzig, Wolfsburg and Leverkusen are also yet to drop a point this season.This past weekend, Freiburg beat up on Paderborn 3-1, Leipzig were 2-1 home winners against Frankfurt, Wolfsburg powered past Hertha 3-0 while Leverkusen defeated Dusseldorf 3-1 away from home.Elsewhere in Germany, Hoffenheim were 3-2 winners at home to Bremen, Gladbach registered their first victory as they beat Mainz 05 while Augsburg were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Union Berlin.In the Italian Serie A, defending champions Juventus started their title defence with a scrappy 1-0 victory away to Parma.Captain Giorgio Chellini scored the winning goal on 21 minutes before star-player Cristiano Ronaldo saw his season opener cancelled out by VAR.Chellini (right) scored Juve’s winner against Parma.On a weekend that was littered with goals, Napoli came from a goal down to beat Fiorentina 4-3 in a thriller. Eric Pulgar put the hosts ahead via the spot on 9 minutes but Napoli scored twice-through Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne-before halftime to turn the game on its head.After the break, Nikola Milenkovi levelled matters for Fiorentina 6 minutes after the break but Jose Callejon put Napoli once ahead once again five minutes later. With 25 minutes to play, debutant Kevin Prince Boateng levelled the game but Insigne ensured victory for Napoli two minutes later.AC Milan new manager Marco Giampaolo got off to a poor start as his side were beaten Udinese. Rodrigo Becao scored the all-important goal with 18 minutes to play.In Rome, AS Roma were held to a thrilling 3-3 draw at home to Genoa. Roma who took the lead three times in the game, scored through Cengiz Under, Edin Dzeko and Alexandre Kolarov while Genoa’s goals were scored by Andrea Pinamonti, Domenico Criscito and Christian Kouame.Elsewhere, Lazio powered past Sampdoria 3-0, Torino defeated Sassuolo 2-1 while Brescia were 1-0 surprise winners at Cagliari.In Ligue One, PSG returned to winning ways this past weekend as they defeated Toulouse 4-0 at the Parc de Princes.It was not as easy as the score-line suggests and Tomas Tuschel’s side had to wait until the 50th minute to get the break through-Eric Choupo-Moting scoring the goal.The Cameroonian international struck one again either side of Mathieu Goncalves’s own goal and Marquinho’s first of the campaign.PSG who have started the season without want-away superstar Neymar Jr have now won two and lost the other of their three games.PSG have won two of their first three games.Monaco continued their trend of seeing a player sent off as they threw-away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at home to Nimes.Just like in the opening two fixtures, this time it was Jemerson who was shown red in the 55th minutes with Monaco leading thanks to first-half goals by Islam Slimani and Wassim Ben Yedder.The one-man advantage was the catalyst that Nimes required to get back into the game as Romain Philippoteaux and Ahoueke Denkey scored in the last 20 minutes to grab a point.Elsewhere in Ligue One, Nantes, Bordeaux, Angers, Brest and Rennes were all victorious in their respective fixtures.All La Liga Results from the past weekend-Granada 0-1 Sevilla-Levante 2-1 Villarreal-Osasuna 0-0 Eibar-Real Madrid 1-1 Real Valladolid-Celta Vigo 1-0 Valencia-Getafe 1-1 Bilbao-Alaves 0-0 Espanyol-Mallorca 0-1 Sociedad-Leganes 0-1 Atletico-Barcelona 5-2 BetisAll Bundesliga results from the past weekend-Koln 1-3 Dortmund-Hoffenheim 3-2 Bremen-Dusseldorf 1-3 Leverkusen-Mainz 1-3 Monchengladbach-Augsburg 1-1 Union Berlin-Paderborn 1-3 Freiburg-Schalke 0-3 Bayern Munich-Leipzig 2-1 Frankfurt-Hertha Berlin 0-3 WolfsburgAll Serie A results from the past weekend-Parma 0-1 Juventus-Fiorentina 3-4 Napoli-Udinese 1-0 Milan-Cagliari 0-1 Brescia-Hellas Verona 1-1 Bologna-Roma 3-3 Genoa-Sampdoria 0-3 Lazio-SPAL 2-3 Atalanta-Torino 2-1 SassuoloAll Ligue-One Results from this past weekend-Amiens 1-2 Nantes-Dijon 0-2 Bordeaux-Angers 3-0 Metz-Brest 1-0 Reims-Monaco 2-2 Nimes-Strasbourg 0-2 Rennes-PSG 4-0 ToulouseComments Tags: BundesligaFrench Ligue OneLa LigaSerie Atoplast_img read more

Ghana beat Mali in Afcon showdown

first_img25 January 2013Ghana beat Mali 1-0 in a crucial Orange Africa Cup of Nations Group B clash at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Thursday. In the other group game, Niger claimed its first ever Afcon points with a goalless draw against the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).Ghana and Mali were considered the two favourites in Group B prior to the start of the tournament, but on Thursday the Black Stars needed a win more than the Eagles after allowing the DRC to come back from two goals down in their first outing to force a draw, while Mali edged Niger 1-0 with a late goal. Fortunately for coach Kwesi Appiah, his charges delivered the much needed victory.With a final group match remaining, Ghana now top the standings on four points, Mali has three, DRC two and Niger one.Controversial incidentPlaying the early game, Mali had a decent chance to strike early on after goalkeeper Fatawu Dauda handled the ball outside his box and picked up a yellow card.It could easily have been a red, as Seydou Keita would have been through on goal had the goalkeeper not picked up the ball. Keita took the free kick, but was narrowly wide of Dauda’s right hand post with his effort.Ghana began to fire away from distance on Mamadou Samassa’s goal, but struggled to find their range. Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu then came oh so close to giving the Black Stars the lead in the 33rd minute when he rose high to head towards goal. He beat Samassa, but struck the left-hand post.GoalShortly after that, Agyemang-Badu was brought down inside the box by Adama Tamboura and the referee pointed to the spot. Wakaso Mubarak took the penalty kick and duly converted for his third goal in just six internationals.The second half failed to rise to any great heights, with the match degenerating into a stop-start affair. Mali failed to make an impression on the Ghanaian defence, with Isaac Vorsah leading the way for the Black Stars, while Ghana pushed for a second goal, but couldn’t find it.Cheick Diabate had a chance to snatch a late equaliser for Mali, but he made a mess of a rebound from a corner and Ghana moved to the top of the table.Apart from Vorsah, Agyemang-Badu, left back Harrison Afful and midfielder Albert Adomah, with good linking play, stood out for Ghana. Diabate and captain Seydou Keita were the best of the Malian players, but for the most part the Eagles were pushed onto the back foot and forced to defend.‘We can do better’Ghana’s coach Kwesi Appiah, although happy with the result, felt his team could improve significantly. “Tactically, the team was much disciplined and there was no loss of concentration. We still got a lot to offer and can do better in our next games,” he said.Mali coach Patrice Carteron conceded that the Black Stars were the better team on the day. He said: “Ghana were better than us in the first half. In the second half, we tried to score but their defenders were good and prevented us from scoring. We have our last game and will try to qualify from it.”Fair share of excitementDespite there being no goals, the clash between Niger and the DRC produced its fair share of excitement as both teams created good goal scoring opportunities only to be foiled by the respective goalkeepers.In the fourth minute, Modibo Sidibe should have given Niger an early lead after he robbed defender Larrys Mabiala and burst through on goal, with only the goalkeeper to beat. His low, curling shot struck the base of Muteba Kidiaba’s left hand post, however, and the DRC breathed a collective sigh of relief.In the 13th minute, Dieumerci Mbokani had a good chance to put the Leopards in front. He was picked out with a cross to the far post where he chested the ball down and fired a right footed shot that goalkeeper Kassaly Daouda, who plays for South African Premier Soccer League club Chippa United, did well to parry around the post for a corner.Brilliant saveDaouda then made a brilliant save just before the break, stopping Mbokani again when the DRC had a three-on-one overlap on attack. Mbokani looked odds on to score with the ball at his feet, right in front of goal, almost on the penalty spot, but Daouda shot off his line and threw his body in front of the shot to prevent what looked like a certain goal.In the second half, Moussa Maazou tested Kidiaba with a stinging shot and a header, but the DRC net-minder was up to the challenge. Late in the game, Kidiaba pulled off another fine save at full stretch to secure a second draw for the Leopards.Daouda’s save just before the break was perhaps the highlight of the contest, while he received good support on the night from defender Koffi Dan Kowa. Kidiaba was good in the DRC goal, while Mulota Kabangu was at the centre of a number of good attacking forays for the Leopards.‘Proud’Gernot Rohr, the head coach of Niger, was satisfied with his side’s showing, saying afterwards: “I’m very happy with our performance. It was historic as Niger won a point for the first time in the Africa Cup of Nations. You can only be proud of your team when you have such players.”DRC coach Claude le Roy felt his charges had missed out on an opportunity to put pressure on the group’s big two of Ghana and Mali. “We did not play well today,” he said. “We missed some chances in the first half which we could have scored. I believe we can do better.”The draw means all four teams in Group D are in with a shot at a place in the quarterfinals. One suspects, however, that the pre-tournament favourites, Ghana and Mali, will progress to the next phase. The Black Stars take on Niger in their last outing, while Mali face the DRC.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
