UN Officials Censoring Chinese Firewall Protest?

Posted on by

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web At a UN-sponsored event today in Egypt, UN officials demanded the removal of a poster that alluded to the issue of Internet restrictions in China.The poster was an advertisement for Access Controlled, an MIT publication about the so-called Great Firewall of China, one of the first national Internet filtering systems and a policy that has come under harsh international criticism. The poster was being displays at the fourth annual meeting of the Internet Governance Forum in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. The purpose of the forum is to support UN mandates regarding the sustainability, robustness, security, stability, and development of the Internet.Its mission makes the poster’s removal all the more puzzling. The poster, displayed at an Open Net Initiative reception, was apparently removed because it contained a sentence that violated UN policy. The sentence in question reads as follows:The first generation of Internet controls consisted largely of building firewalls at key Internet gateways; China’s famous “Great Firewall of China” is one of the first national Internet filtering systems.The goal of the Open Net Initiative is to investigate, expose and analyze Internet filtering and surveillance. We remain unclear on the exact policies the poster violated; however, we must strongly question the act of its removal, which amounts to censorship of protest of censorship – a censorship sandwich, if you will, which few of us can find appetizing.“It is ironic that while people are allowed to gather here to discuss freedom of expression online, censorship, and surveillance practices on the Internet, we are being restricted in expressing our views,” said Al Alegre of the Foundation for Media Alternatives, a member of the ONI Network, to reporters today. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.In our previous coverage of Chinese censorship of Internet access, we alerted readers to the fact that every new computer sold after July 1, 2009 would be equipped with software “intended to block pornography and possibly filter politically disruptive material, all while quietly gathering private user data.” This “Green Dam Youth Escort” software is closely related, both ideologically and politically, to the “Golden Shield Project,” China’s national firewall aimed at censorship and surveillance of user activity.

He told The Sunday Times: “Until they fix it, United’s back five will be fire-fighting.”They can spend massively on Maguire, give Victor Lindelof a new five-year deal, De Gea four more lucrative years and sign Wan-Bissaka for £50million and it will all be money down the drain.”He added: “United are trying to rebuild from the back after signing Harry Maguire from Leicester City for £80m and Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace for £50m.”I rate Maguire.

Public Urged to Use Antibiotics Responsibly

Posted on by

first_img The public is being urged to take greater responsibility in the use of antibiotics to prevent the further occurrence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR).Antimicrobial resistance is the ability of a microorganism (bacterium, virus and some parasites) to prevent antibiotics, antivirals and antimalarials from working against it. As a result, standard treatments become ineffective, infections persist and may spread to others.The Ministry of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries has adopted the global action plan, along with the World Health Organization, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and the World Animal Health Organization, to tackle antimicrobial resistance among humans and animals.Director of Veterinary Public Health in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Linnette Peters, said the multi-stakeholder approach is to ensure that the public is made aware of the various causes for the resistance.Speaking at a recent JIS ‘Think Tank’, she added that the public’s interest in this matter of AMR is important for the effective use of antibiotics. She said everyone should get involved to assist in the continuity of successful treatment and prevention of infectious diseases.Dr. Peters outlined a number of ways microorganisms have developed resistance, and is urging the public to pay keen attention to prevent further opposition to the drugs.“We have the problem of the misuse and abuse of antibiotics… (as) many times patients visit their physicians and ask for antibiotics for an illness that does not require the use of the drug,” she noted.She stressed that sometimes the antibiotic is not really needed to treat the condition for which the patient requests it, and, as a result of giving the antibiotic for a simple matter, the body is forced to build up resistance to prevent the drug from working in the future.Dr. Peters said that there are also situations where persons get the antibiotics and do not take them for the full course.“This is very critical. There are times when the patient starts to feel well and he or she will stop taking it. This is a very bad thing to do, because when you do this, the bacteria are still in the body, just a little suppressed; hence you feel better, but the bacteria will return strong if the full dosage is not administered. So, you should desist from this practice,” she urged.Dr. Peters is encouraging the public to purchase antibiotics from reputable sources, official pharmacies and doctors.She explained that it is very important that the public take heed to the appeal, adding that buying antibiotics from disreputable places is dangerous. “They are sometimes not stored properly, so they will lose the potency; sometimes they are expired drugs, and if you take medication with these conditions, the strength will not be enough to kill the germs,” she said.Dr. Peters noted that there is also the misuse of antibiotics by farmers as growth promoters, which is a concern and a big problem in AMR.“Farmers are adding antibiotics to the animal feed, and when the animal consumes it, this will affect the lining of the intestine, and organisms in the stomach that are exposed to this antibiotic (may) develop resistance,” she said.She explained that farmers should adhere to the instructions of the veterinarians to ensure that the animals are treated and the withdrawal period is observed. This, she advised, is to safeguard that the drug is fully out of the animal’s system before it is slaughtered for sale.Dr. Peters said if the meat is sold with residues from the drug, it is especially dangerous, because the animals will not be cured from the bacterial infections, and, if consumed, it will pose a greater problem to the health of the public.World Antibiotic Awareness Week is being observed from November 13 to 19, under the theme ‘Antibiotic, the End of an Era’. The public is being urged to take greater responsibility in the use of antibiotics to prevent the further occurrence of antimicrobial resistance (AMR Director of Veterinary Public Health in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Linnette Peters, said the multi-stakeholder approach is to ensure that the public is made aware of the various causes for the resistance. Speaking at a recent JIS ‘Think Tank’, she added that the public’s interest in this matter of AMR is important for the effective use of antibiotics.

Credit: Courtesy of OSUAfter a tough battle with rival Michigan in Ann Arbor three weeks ago, the Ohio State women’s volleyball team is expecting more of the same when the Wolverines visit Columbus this weekend.In what OSU coach Geoff Carlston called “a total grind-out match,” the 14th-ranked Buckeyes (21-6, 10-5) defeated Michigan (16-10, 6-9) in four sets in their Oct. 24 meeting, with two sets going to extra points and all four sets being decided by the minimum of two points.OSU will be going for a sweep of its rivals on Saturday at 7 p.m. in St. John Arena.“It does help knowing that we’ve beat them before, but I think in the second half of the Big Ten, everyone’s a different team,” senior middle blocker Tyler Richardson said. “So we’re still going to prepare for them just like how we would any other team.”Michigan has been reeling of late, losing its last four games — all against ranked teams — by a combined score of 12 sets to one, but Carlston said he knows the Wolverines will be out for revenge on Saturday.“Getting them at their place, that motivates them to come here and beat us,” he said. “It’s nice to be home … so we certainly need to take advantage of being in St. John this week.”In particular, OSU will have its hands full with sophomore outside hitter Caroline Knop, who has averaged nearly five kills per set in her team’s last five matches.Five seniors will be playing in their final regular-season game against Michigan, including Richardson, outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell, outside hitter Katie Mitchell, middle blocker Andrea Kacsits and setter Emily Ruetter.The Buckeyes have split their six games with Michigan since Mitchell and Kacsits arrived in 2012, and the two seniors are looking to break that tie on Saturday.“It’d be nice to finish playing that rival my four years with a win and look back and say, ‘Yeah, we took care of them,’” Mitchell said.Richardson, who came to Columbus in 2014 after transferring from Middle Tennessee State, said she’s eager to “send them home with an ‘L.’”Buckeyes get pair of 2016 commitsOn Thursday, OSU announced that two high school All-Americans have signed letters of intent to join the Buckeyes next season.Brooke Bailey, a native of Canton, Ohio, is a 6-foot-2 outside hitter who was named a first-team all-Ohio player in each of the last three seasons while playing for Jackson High School.Madison Smeathers, of Vargersville, Indiana, plays multiple positions and was an all-Indiana selection the last two years.What’s next?In the first of three straight road games, OSU is set to head west to take on Iowa on Wednesday at 8 p.m. The Buckeyes won the first matchup of the season against the Hawkeyes in four sets. read more

Wagner talks about why Huddersfield was humiliated by City

first_imgThe Huddersfield boss says the problem wasn’t the tactics, but the quality of the opposition after a 6-1 defeatFor Huddersfield manager David Wagner, tactics alone in the English Premier League don’t win matches.He said the quality of the opposition is key after his team was defeated 6-1 by Manchester City.“I wouldn’t say we waited, but it was clear when we saw the starting XI, the teamsheet, they would change their formation from what they’ve usually done in the past,” said Wagner according to The Examiner.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedSolskjaer praises Harry Maguire after Man United’s 1-0 win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Harry Maguire for praise after helping Manchester United keep a clean sheet in their 1-0 win over Leicester City.“Then we were able to change our formation as well and we went away from the three back line to a four backline to try and make sure who was defending which spaces.”“I think at the end of the day it wasn’t a tactical decision which decided the game, this was only the quality we faced,” he added.“The problems we had before the game (with Aaron Mooy withdrawing and Jonathan Hogg and Zanka both unfit) didn’t make it easier for us.”“But I think we have to say, first of all, congratulations to City for a great performance and they deserved the win, while on the day we weren’t good enough,” he commented.last_img read more
