Permission was granted after the station had paid all the annual fees it owed.———————18 January 2005 – Country’s oldest privately-owned radio station faces closureReporters Without Borders today called on Chad’s High Council of Communication (HCC) to rescind the week-long suspension of a privately-owned radio station, DJA FM, which began yesterday, and to withdraw its threat to close it down permanently if it is still unable to pay its annual dues at the end of the week.”This is the first time the HCC has taken such as decision and its effect could be dramatic, as the HCC is well aware that the country’s 13 privately-owned radio stations are operating in a very difficult economic context,” the press freedom organisation said.”If DJA FM and other stations are forced to close, this will constitute a serious blow to free expression and news diversity in Chad,” Reporters Without Borders warned, calling on the authorities to demonstrate their support for press freedom by allowing DJA FM to resume broadcasting. DJA FM, which is a non profit radio, could be allowed to pay the annual dues in installments, it suggested.Zara Yacoub, the station’s president, learned of the suspension just three days before it was due to take effect. An HCC communique said: “Broadcasts by radio DJA FM are suspended for a period of eight days, from Monday 17 January to Monday 24 January inclusively, for failure to regularise its financial situation under the regulations for privately-owned radio stations.”The communique added: “DJA FM will be subject to withdrawal of its operating authorisation if the refusal to regularise continues.” The annual dues for a radio station is 500,000 CFA francs (764 euros).Zara Yacoub, who is also president of the Chad Union of Privately-Owned Radio Stations (URPT), told the HCC president in letters in November and it December 2004 that DJA FM was not refusing pay its dues and that its failure to do so was due “simply to a cruel lack of financial resources.”She also said that, at a meeting with the HCC president, DJA FM had proposed paying the dues as soon as it received the government subsidy for privately-owned radio stations, and that this proposal was repeated in the first letter. Zara Yacoub added that the communique showed that “the HCC is bent on eliminating DJA FM for undeclared reasons.”Set up in 1999, DJA FM was Chad’s first privately-owned radio station. Until now, the HCC had never suspended any news media for non-payment of dues since it was formed in 1995.

first_img As a provider of secure communications services to the top multinationals across 180 countries, rules-based international trade is crucial to BT and our partners. Our services enable business customers to move ever increasing volumes of data seamlessly and safely around the globe. Bas Burger, CEO of BT’s Global division, said: Top of my agenda at the G20 meeting this weekend will be addressing global trade tensions, seeking a resolution to issues around the WTO Appellate Body, and making real progress on digital trade rules that are fit for the 21st century. Wilson Del Socorro, Global Director of Government Affairs of Diageo, said: Dr Max Mendez-Parra, Senior Research Fellow, Overseas Development Institute, said: Business now has a golden opportunity to shape the WTO, and future proof it for the globalised twenty-first century. We strongly support the Government’s efforts to deliver a multilateral solution that protects our shared rules and want a firm commitment that G20 leaders will support them too. Firms may lose the closest thing they have to a level playing field, and there is a danger the WTO quietly turns into an organisation without the means of enforcing its rules, leaving firms high and dry in key global markets. During their discussions, Trade ministers will be considering recommendations made by the B20 international business group, which is comprised of businesses representatives from G20 countries.Following a summit in Tokyo in March, the B20 has called on the G20 to renew their commitment to the rules-based trading system and to update the global trade rules so they work better for today’s economy and help all countries to develop.The CBI represented the UK at the Tokyo Summit and led a delegation of British businesses, including BT and Diageo.Ben Digby, CBI International Director, said: The UK is one of the strongest defenders of the international rules-based system and we will continue to champion a strong, forward-looking approach to reform the World Trade Organization. The international rules-based system has been key in facilitating the operation of the trade, investment and development links that have benefitted many developing countries in the last two decades. The G20 leaders must make a strong commitment to enhance and update the multilateral rules and institutions to continue their operation. Trade rules need to keep pace. A system fit for the today’s economy must fully embrace the digital trade and e-commerce which telecoms services underpin. All parties must work together to ensure the updated rules are fair, transparent and enforceable. With the global economy facing significant headwinds, now is the time for governments to come together to ensure a predictable and transparent environment for businesses to trade and invest in each other’s economies. This is crucial the shared prosperity of billions of people around the world. Trade is the lifeblood of Diageo. Our brands are sold in 180 countries and so we require a global trading system that will help to grow our brands for the future. Dr Liam Fox, International Trade Secretary, is attending the G20 Ministerial meeting on Trade and Digital Economy in Tsukuba, Japan this weekend (Saturday 8 to Sunday 9 June).Top of the UK Government’s agenda will be addressing global trade tensions and seeking a resolution to issues around the WTO Appellate Body.The WTO Appellate Body resolves global trade disputes in a fair and transparent way, however it now faces significant challenges including the pace of decision-making and the stalemate in the appointment of Appellate Body members.Dr Fox will also be encouraging countries to ensure the global trading system is fit for the 21st century for example by making progress in creating new rules for digital trade.International Trade Secretary Dr Liam Fox said: British businesses, both big and small, rely on the WTO as an independent arbiter, providing transparency and certainty, as they trade highly sought-after goods and services in markets across the globe. But the WTO is heading into choppy waters, with the Appellate Body facing risk of collapse in a few months. We welcome the dialogue to improve the international trading order and like other businesses are actively engaging in the broader policy discussions, such as the B20, to ensure that the rules governing trade remain fit for purpose. G20 leaders, including Prime Minister Theresa May, agreed in Buenos Aires last December to support the necessary reform of the WTO. The 2019 G20 Summit Meeting will see leaders meet in Osaka on 28-29 June.last_img read more

first_imgIt’s football season, and tailgating with friends before a game is a traditional part of the experience. Unfortunately, grilling your favorite cut of beef means increasing the potential for foodborne illness due to improper handling of food before, during and after cooking.The food industry tries to make beef as safe as possible for consumers, but the consumer plays an integral part in ensuring meat is safe for consumption.These reminders from the University of Georgia Meat Science and Technology Center will provide you with grilling skills to keep foodborne illness far from your fall tailgating get-togethers.Cross-contamination can occur at multiple points starting with the grocery store. When selecting raw beef, always place it inside one of the plastic bags found hanging near most meat counters. Place meat items together in the grocery cart, away from other goods. Ask the cashier or bagger to place raw meat items together, not with other items. This ensures that raw meat juices do not come in contact with other items if a package breaks or leaks. It is especially important that raw meat does not come in contact with food that is intended to be eaten raw or without cooking.At home, continue to make sure raw meat, raw meat juices and residue do not come in contact with other foods. Use different-colored cutting boards for various food items. Consider using a red board for raw meat, a green board for raw produce and a white board for cooked meat. If multiple cutting boards are not an option, prepare one food item at a time and thoroughly clean the cutting board with a sanitizer and warm, soapy water before cutting the next food item. Use separate utensils for raw and cooked meat. Wash your hands often with soap and hot water.The only way to know that your beef is truly cooked is by checking its temperature with a thermometer. The thermometer must be calibrated correctly and often. You can easily calibrate a thermometer using ice water and boiling water to establish both ends of the temperature spectrum. If your thermometer cannot be calibrated, check its accuracy often and replace it when needed.The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends cooking all whole-muscle cuts of beef to a minimum of 145 degrees Fahrenheit measured in the thickest part of the meat, followed by a three-minute rest period before carving or consumption. The USDA recommends all ground beef products and enhanced or blade-tenderized products be cooked to a minimum of 160 F.If you prefer your beef on the lower end of the temperature spectrum, you as the consumer must accept the fact that some contamination may still be present. This risk is minimized on whole-muscle cuts if the surface temperature reaches 160 F.Judging temperature by cutting into a burger or steak to check the color is not a reliable practice. This releases juices, makes the beef dry and contaminates the cutting utensil if the meat is not cooked through.Additionally, color, especially that of ground beef, can be very misleading. Premature browning, a color phenomenon known to happen in ground beef when the myoglobin color pigment changes at lower temperatures, can make the meat look grayish-brown even though the meat is not cooked through. Ground beef cooked to 160 F can remain pink, leading the cook to think the burger is not done. While this is not a food safety issue since the meat has reached an internal temperature of 160 F, it can be a quality issue if the cook continues to heat the burger in an effort to remove the pink color.If the beef is cooked but is not going to be eaten right away, it should be kept above 140 F or cooled to below 40 F. If the beef is cooled, it should be done so quickly after cooking. Temperatures within the “danger zone,” between 40 F and 140 F, can enable growth of pathogenic bacteria.Remember to use your thermometer and these simple food safety guidelines from UGA to create a safe eating experience at your next cookout.last_img read more

first_imgTaranaki Daily News 27 March 2012Medicating children and teenagers to treat mental illness is creating a “toxic environment” for New Zealand’s youth, a suicide prevention advocate says. Maria Bradshaw, chief executive of suicide prevention group Casper has slammed the use of medication to treat those as young as babies for mental illness. “We are creating a toxic environment for our children. Schools or families may not be meeting their needs and instead of looking at ourselves as adults, saying we need to make changes, we’re making it something wrong about them,” Ms Bradshaw said. “We’re medicating them which is not only not beneficial for them but also harmful, creating an increase in violence and aggression and doubling the risk of suicide.”Fairfax yesterday revealed youth services nationally have seen a spike in the number of children referred for treatment. Pharmac figures show an average 10 per cent increase in prescriptions of mood-stabilising drugs for children aged 5 and over compared to five years ago. The use of anti-psychotic medication among 10 to 19-year-olds has leapt 47 per cent since 2007, with 3240 children taking the drugs in 2011. But Ms Bradshaw says the situation is much more dire than those figures suggest.http://www.stuff.co.nz/taranaki-daily-news/news/6641899/Shock-at-pills-for-kidslast_img read more

first_imgzoom German shipping company Wessels Reederei has signed a letter of intent with compatriot engine manufacturer MAN Diesel & Turbo to convert three of its ships to dual-fuel gas operation.The document was inked at the Europort 2017 exhibition of maritime technology in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.The three ships are sisters to the Wes Amelie, a 1,036 TEU feeder containership with a MAN 8L48/60B main engine that was retrofitted to a multi-fuel, four-stroke MAN 51/60DF unit earlier in 2017.The retrofit enables dual-fuel operation and is the first such conversion of its type the world has ever seen.“The Wes Amelie project was really a pioneering moment in the European container-feeder market and shows clearly that existing MAN engines can be converted to LNG operation with a tremendous effect on exhaust emissions and the environment,” Stefan Eefting, Senior Vice President, MAN Diesel & Turbo and Head of MAN PrimeServ Diesel in Augsburg, said.“One of the key reasons the Wes Amelie was selected for conversion was its ‘multiplier effect’, that is, its many sister ships that would facilitate follow-up projects at reduced costs owing to the experiences gained from the first project. I believe the signing of this letter of intent validates our approach and points a realistic way towards decarbonisation and a climate-neutral shipping industry by 2050,” Eefting added.Wes Amelie has 23 sister ships, 16 of them structurally identical, which would allow follow-up projects to be implemented, according to MAN.last_img read more
