Art aids struggle to keep NYC hospital open

first_imgWW photo: Anne PrudenOn the heels of 12 hospital closings in the last 10 years, a creative new tactic has emerged in an effort to stop the epidemic of hospital closings. The New Brooklyn Theater is showing Edward Albee’s play about 1930s Jim Crow Memphis and the famous blues singer, Bessie Smith, who died on the way to a hospital there. Albee’s play, “The Death of Bessie Smith,” is being produced inside Brooklyn’s Interfaith Medical Center in solidarity with the fight to keep Interfaith open.On Jan. 17, hospital workers staged a successful occupation there when the hospital chief executive officer tried to cancel ambulance service and was forced to resign after hiding in his office. The ambulance service was restored. Medical statistics show that if Interfaith closes, 250,000 women in central Brooklyn will not be able to have screenings for breast cancer.Many unions as well as community groups and elected officials have joined this fight, including 1199 SEIU, New York State Nurses Association and Communciation Workers Local 1180.You still have a chance to be part of this inspiring linking of creative art with anti-racist, community and labor solidarity, contact The New Brooklyn Theater. Because of the tremendous outpouring of support, the play has been extended for additional showings Jan. 23-26, Jan. 30-Feb. 2 and Feb. 6-9. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m., and the Sunday performance is at 2 p.m.Be there!

International Committee for Peace, Justice and Dignity: ‘We stand with Maduro and the Venezuelan people’

first_imgWe reject the coup attempt of the U.S. government against the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, which ignores and violates the sovereign decision of the Venezuelan people who, in an absolute democratic and transparent election, in the presence of international observers, elected Nicolás Maduro as their legitimate President last May.On Jan. 22, U.S. Vice President Mike Pence sent a recorded message out that was broadcasted by 2,527 media outlets for three days in coordination with the shadowy Organization of American States (OAS) calling for subversion against Maduro’s government.Before the eyes of the world, and in the most grotesque manner with the absence of opposition involvement, this new attack was openly done by the one who pays and rules. They spoke and presented their new puppet they had prepared for the occasion, Juan Guaidó, announcing him on the stage for the world to see.The National Assembly, a body that represents no one, in contempt for the violation of the principles of the Constitution, responds directly to U.S. interests, and whose rotating presidency was held by Guaidó [who was] named president of Venezuela out of thin air. It would be laughable if the facts were not so serious and the stability of the region was not put at high risk.Donald Trump quickly gave recognition to Guaidó through twitter, immediately followed by the vile secretary of the OAS Luis Almagro, the mafioso of Miami Marco Rubio and part of the cartel of Lima.It did not take long to learn that Guaidó, unknown until three days ago, was selected by USAID [U.S. Agency for International Development] and the U.S. intelligence agencies as the clown on duty to play such an embarrassing and usurping role. He says he will carry out a transitional government, to which the people, the Bolivarian National Armed Force (FANB), or any other institution did not respond.Nicolás Maduro Moros holds the Presidency of the Republic and is the one who was elected by the overwhelming majority of the Venezuelan people with more than 67 percent of the votes. The so-called new president has sought refuge in an embassy — in other words he is in foreign territory knowing that his actions are illegal and a crime against the Constitution.The Bolivarian National Armed Force and the military high command are on alert and have reiterated their allegiance to Maduro.Faced with imperial interference and the attempted coup d’état, the government of President Nicolás Maduro has broken diplomatic relations with the United States and has ordered personnel of the U.S. government to leave the country in 72 hours.This is a dangerous new move against Venezuela and sets the stage to try and legitimize a military intervention.We call on the friends of Cuba and Venezuela in the world, the men and women of goodwill, to support the legitimate President Nicolás Maduro, his government, and the people of Venezuela.#Venezuela Is Not Alone!#WeAreMaduro#TodosCon Maduro#No Pasarán!International Committee for Peace, Justice and DignityArgentine League for Human RightsCarioca Committee in Solidarity with CubaJanuary 23, 2019FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Arrests of journalists and censorship continue two months after emergency declared

first_img RSF_en NepalAsia – Pacific March 30, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Arrests of journalists and censorship continue two months after emergency declared June 8, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information At least 45 journalists have been detained for questioning or arrested by the security forces since King Gyanendra declared a state of emergency and seized full powers two months ago, on 1 February, while 10 of the 15 journalists currently in prison were arrested in the past two months, Reporters Without Borders said today.The latest to be arrested is Ganesh Mahar, a freelance journalist who used to edit Farwest Daily and Sahakarmi Weekly. He has been detained in the western town of Dadeldhura since his arrest on 25 March while covering an opposition party rally.Reporters Without Borders said it condemned these arrests and other press freedom violations committed by the Nepalese authorities in the name of national interests. It was also very concerned about the press censorship still in force, it stressed.According to a statement carried by the governmental news agency RSS, the print media are banned from publishing articles or interviews that could incite “violent or terrorist acts that go against the intentions and spirit of the royal proclamation of 1 February.”FM radio stations are also subject to censorship. On 9 March, the information and communication ministry reiterated the 2 February ban on their broadcasting news programmes.Many news media have had to close since the state of emergency was declared, putting at least 600 journalists out of work.Reporters Without Borders said it supported the protests in which 400 journalists took to the streets in Kathmandu on 29 March to demand the end of censorship, the restoration of press freedom and the release of the imprisoned journalists.

Oilex to acquire permits in Cooper-Eromanga Basins from Senex

first_img The IEA previously cut its oil demand growth forecast earlier this year Australia-based Oilex has agreed to acquire 27 petroleum licences in the Cooper-Eromanga Basins in South Australia.The licences are currently owned by Senex Energy and its related parties based in the Northern Oil and West Gas Fairway which covers 2,445km².The company said that it has been reviewing the Cooper-Eromanga Basin for over two years due to its high exploration success rate, low-cost development pathways and under-explored and under-developed nature.Oilex managing director Joe Salomon said: “We see this transaction as taking a major step forward in the Cooper Basin. In acquiring the Paning Tight Gas Discovery, this provides the Company with operatorship and 100% ownership of this discovery and fits the Company’s knowledge and experience in drilling and appraising tight gas.“Equally, the robust gas pricing in Eastern Australia provides a great basis for the commercial potential for the Paning Discovery. The basin is well endowed with infrastructure providing for attractive low-cost discovery and development for Oilex.”The Northern petroleum retention licences (PRLs) are operated by Senex and the company has agreed to transfer 100% of its interest in the permits subject to the satisfaction of conditions and securing government approvals. The PRLs are part of the 15-year tenure retention agreement between the South Australian Government and Senex announced in August 2013.Terms of the agreementUnder the terms of the deal, Oilex will acquire 100% of Senex’s interest in the Northern Fairway PRLs for nominal consideration and assumption of existing abandonment liabilities, PRL fees and PRL expenditure targets. The agreement is subject to various conditions, including the approval of Oilex as the operator of the Northern Fairway PRLs by the South Australian Government.Hartleys, an Australian corporate advisory and stockbroking financial services firm, has been appointed to lead the arrangement of funding for the acquisition.The acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of calendar year 2019.Recently, Oilex signed an exclusivity agreement to potentially acquire up to 50% stake in the Knox and Lowry, and Whitbeck gas discoveries (KLW) in the East Irish Sea from Koru Energy. The acquisition is expected to be completed by the end of 2019last_img read more

HITS-on-the-Hudson is the place to be this summer, so be sure to add it to your calendar as you make your 2021 plans! Throughout the eight weeks of FEI and USEF-Rated competition, numerous Championships, and some of the biggest classes and largest Grand Prix prize purses in America will be featured in the Upstate, New York Village of Saugerties. The three-week Summer Series, July 21 – August 8, 2021, has just been upgraded to FEI CSI4* competition.*Spring Series (I, II, III), May 26 – June 13 | FEI CSI2*Summer Series (IV, V, VI), July 21 – August 8 | FEI CSI4*†Fall Series (VII), September 1-5 | FEI CSI2*Fall Series (VIII), September 8-12 | FEI CSI5*(featuring the HITS Championship)The eight weeks of FEI competition at HITS Saugerties will offer $2 million in prize money. “With the cancellation of the Spruce Meadows Summer Series, our upgrading to CSI4* will fill the void for Grand Prix riders in the US and Canada who depend on the upper-level FEI events in the summer for FEI ranking points and top prize money both,” said Tom Struzzieri, President and CEO of HITS. “I’ve had the opportunity to talk to lots of Grand Prix riders showing with us in Ocala, and some in Wellington, and the response to the upgrade has been super. We look forward to a great season of competition.”The FEI schedule each week, other than the HITS Championship CSI5*, will run Thursday through Saturday, allowing the FEI horses to compete in National classes Wednesday and Sunday if they choose. “It’s perhaps a little different schedule than the riders are used to seeing at FEI events, but to me, the shortened time span allows the horse show and the riders to focus their resources on those 3 days and give it their all,” said Struzzieri. “Plus, the flexibility to show those horses nationally on the day before and after gives riders an option to choose the right schedule for their horses.”The National Open Jumper division, will offer $50,000 in total prize money each week, with classes on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday. “We are glad to keep a strong National Jumper Division too, for horses that aren’t quite ready for FEI CSI4* level, or for horses that need an option or a week to prepare,” Struzzieri continued. “We know riders want to bring their whole string of horses and their clients to the show and get solid experience for them. That’s why we are keeping a full schedule of National Open Jumper classes as well as the 1.20m, 1.30m, Junior/Amateur and Young Jumper classes.”† FEI upgrade pending final approval Tags: Tom Struzzieri, show jumping, HITS on the Hudson, Saugerties, CSI4*, Horse Sport Enewslast_img read more

Obscene outburst from Archbishop’s press secretary

first_imgThe press secretary of the newly appointed Archbishop of Westminster has apologised for verbally abusing a student during a meal at Blackfriars College.The senior aide to Vincent Nichols, who was installed as Archbishop of Westminster yesterday, is alleged to have launched an unprovoked “foul-mouthed tirade” against Oxford student Matthew Tye after a dinner with Francis Campbell, British ambassador to the Vatican and former policy advisor to Tony Blair, at the Aquinas Institute at Blackfriars College, Oxford.Mr. Campbell had delivered an open lecture on Faith and Foreign Policy before attending the dinner with other distinguished guests, to which Tye had been invited.A masters student at Campion Hall, Tye claims that after “drinking heavily” at the dinner, a “plastered” Mr. Jennings – whom he had met once before while interning for a Catholic organisation at The Birmingham Oratory – launched into a verbal attack on him, repeatedly calling him a “sh*t”, concluding with “Nobody wants you, good riddance” as he made for the left the room.“It was completely unprovoked… and quite unbelievable,” said Tye.“There were guests who tried to calm him down but to no avail.”He said that he was “in shock and dismay” at the incident, and he wrote to the Archbishop requesting an apology, in which he wrote, “I’ve never been subjected to such sustained verbal abuse in public in my entire life.”The letter was leaked to the Mail on Sunday and the incident has subsequently been widely reported in the national press. On Monday the story featured on the front page of the online edition of Bugün Gazetesi, a major newspaper in Turkey, under the headline ‘Blasphemy scandal at Oxford’. Although Mr. Jennings has issued an apology, Tye said that it was not sufficient, and was frustrated that neither Mr. Jennings – nor the Archbishop – had made any personal apology expressly to him.“In his political apology, he made up the excuse that I’d brought up at dinner that he’d been sacked as spokesman of Birmingham Oratory,” he said.“More than anything I’m appalled that someone in his position is lying and trying to spin his way out of trouble.“His credibility is completely destroyed, and the political apology is a disgrace. I just want an honest and sincere apology, accepting what he did and apologising for the embarrassment caused to all the guests who were there,” he added.He also remarked that he thought that Mr. Jennings would be “fired in a subtle way” once the storm had died down.Mr. Jennings has referred to the scandal and subsequent press coverage as a “storm in a teacup, or rather a typhoon in a teaspoon”, and denied many of the allegations against him.“I most emphatically was not drunk,” he insisted. “I probably used the derogatory term beginning with ‘S’, two, maybe three times.”He also denied that Tye had he had failed to apologise to Tye directly, and refuted claims that the attack was unprovoked.“I have sent Mr. Tye a letter of apology which he requested, but have had no acknowledgement of this. I would expect him to accept the apology; instead, he has not had the courtesy to reply.”Asked whether Archbishop Nichols might make a statement or apology, Mr Jennings was resolute that he would make “none whatsoever.”“I was not representing him at the time, I was invited there in a private capacity.“Far more offensive is that the letter has been leaked to the Mail on Sunday. Someone has deliberately given them the letter… out of malice and mischief.“But again, I do apologise for speaking out of turn.”Mr. Tye, on the other hand, joked that “he should probably go and be spokesman for Al-Qaeda or something,” but insisted that he was trying to “laugh off the matter”.The outburst was not the first in Mr. Jennings’ career. Last month, it was reported Jonathan Wynne-Jones, Religious Affairs Correspondent for the Daily Telegraph, had been on the receiving end of a similar tirade following a discussion on the fact that Mr. Wynne-Jones had recently reported in the Telegraph “that a couple of Vincent Nichols’s colleagues were not particularly warm to the idea of him arriving in Westminster.”“Considering Peter should have been celebrating given that his boss has just got the top job, I thought he might have been in a slightly better mood”, Mr. Wynne-Jones reported.last_img read more
