Senior UN official urges action amid rise in violence against Honduran press

Irina Bokova, the Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), condemned the murder of Israel Zelaya Diaz, a reporter for Radio Internacional in San Pedro Sula, the country’s second largest city.The 62-year-old radio journalist, known as Zagatay, reported on a variety of local topics, including politics and crime. He was found shot to death on the edge of a sugarcane field near the city on 24 August. He is the ninth journalist killed in Honduras this year, according to Reporters Without Borders and the International Press Institute.“It is vital that this crime be investigated thoroughly, just as every effort should be made to end the violence and intimidation targeting journalists in Honduras,” Ms. Bokova stated in a news release.“It is the duty of the authorities to see that the basic human right of freedom of expression is recognized.”Ms. Bokova has also condemned the 11 August murder of Magomedvagif (Sultan) Sultanmagomedov, the editor-in-chief of the television station Makhachkala-TV in the Russian republic of Dagestan.Mr. Sultanmagomedov, who had escaped a previous attempt on his life in 2008, died of gunshot wounds after the car he was travelling in came under submachine-gun fire in central Makhachkala.“The killing of a journalist constitutes an attack against freedom of expression, a fundamental human right. Furthermore, it is an attack on our freedom as citizens to be informed and to participate in the democratic process. “I call on authorities to do their utmost to ensure that the ongoing investigation solves this crime,” said Ms. Bokova.Mr. Sultanmagomedov took over as Makhachkala-TV editor after his predecessor, Abdullah Alishayev, was shot and killed in September 2008. The murder follows those last May near Makhachkala, the capital of Dagestan, of Shamil Aliyev, head of radio stations and a television network, and Sayid Ibragimov, director of a local television channel, as well as four technicians who had gone to the site of a sabotaged television relay station. 30 August 2010The recent murder of a radio journalist in Honduras brings to nine the number of media professionals killed there so far this year, and prompted a senior United Nations official to call for urgent action to stem the rise in violence against members of the press. read more

Earlier this evening — the womens hockey team along with Ancaster’s Laura Fortino were greeted with cheers at Pearson Airport.Laura Fortino finally gets to see her family after a long flight. “It feels amazing to come through those doors and see all of the support we have, and see my family here.”Team Canada women received a heroes welcome Tuesday afternoon. Hundreds of fans and media came for a chance to see the team who’s overtime win was arguable the most exciting moment of the games. a goal that laura set up. “I think on the bench everyone was yelling for me to shoot, but I saw poul out of the corner of my eye and she had a wide open net. I think she put it in and I think I just jumped, jumped for joy.”Her mother Ivana was there in Sochi, but nerves prevented her from seeing the play. “I had my head between my legs, I was praying to god, come on, and I was just asking the guy beside me, ‘where’s the puck’ in the us end or the Canada end let me know because I can’t look.”But Team Canada great Hayley Wickenheiser was impressed with what she saw. “She just made a really nice composed play, and I was yelling at her to move it because I saw Poulin open on the back side, so she was telling me after, ‘you were just screaming at me’.

UN rights official cites clear need for vigilance on issue of privacy

“Deep concerns have been expressed as policies and practices that exploit this vulnerability have been exposed across the globe,” said Deputy High Commissioner for Human Rights Flavia Pansieri, as she opened the UN Human Rights Council’s discussion on the issue. She told delegations that surveillance practices can have a very real impact on peoples’ human rights, including the right to privacy, and their rights to freedom of expression and opinion, to freedom of assembly, to family life and to health.“Information collected through digital surveillance has been used to target dissidents. There are also credible reports suggesting that digital technologies have been used to gather information that has then led to torture and other forms of ill-treatment,” said Ms. Pansieri.Her warning set the stage for the Council’s consideration of the first report of the High Commissioner for Human Rights on the protection and promotion of the right to privacy in the context of domestic and extraterritorial surveillance and/or the interception of digital communications and the collection of personal data, including on a ‘mass scale’, requested by the UN General Assembly late last year.This reportmakes clear that while international human rights law provides a robust and universal framework for protection of the right to privacy, including in the context of surveillance and collection of personal data, in many States, the deliberate lack of adequate national legislation and enforcement, weak procedural safeguards and ineffective oversight contributes to widespread impunity for arbitrary or unlawful interference in the right to privacy. Ms. Pansieri said that States have an obligation to ensure that individuals’ privacy is legally protected against unlawful or arbitrary interference, which means that all forms of communication surveillance must be conducted on the basis of publicly accessible law which, in turn, must comply with States’ own constitutional regimes and international human rights law. With regard to extra-territorial surveillance and interception of digital communication, she continued, the report notes that, if such surveillance involved a State’s exercise of power, or effective control, it then engaged a State’s human rights obligations. “Procedural safeguards and effective oversight are crucial, and lack of such mechanisms has contributed to impunity for arbitrary or unlawful intrusions on the right to privacy in the digital environment.” Ms. Pansieri said States also have an obligation to provide effective remedies for the violation of privacy through digital surveillance. She also raised concerns regarding the role of the private sector, as governments increasingly rely on corporations to conduct and facilitate digital surveillance.In that regard, she recalled that the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights provide a global standard for preventing and addressing diverse human rights effects of business activities.“In addressing these and other gaps regarding the implementation of the right to privacy, a disturbing lack of government transparency often renders examination of this issue extremely arduous, as well as any exercise in accountability,” she said, underscoring the “clear need” for further discussion and in-depth analysis of the matter. The High Commissioner’s report and the Council’s current meeting were “important steps’ in that direction. read more

MediaTek announces dualcore MT6577 processor for sub200 phones

first_imgMaybe you’re not all that interested in a tablet — not even a shiny new 7-inch Nexus device that are priced to move. Perhaps all you’re really after is a newer, speedier smartphone that will finally let you ditch your outdated featurephone without breaking the bank — or forcing you into a lengthy contract to secure a discount. If that’s the case, MediaTek’s latest processor might make your dream of a cheap-but-capable upgrade a reality. How cheap? How does $200 for a brand new Android smartphone off-contract sound?The MT6577 processor isn’t capable of competing with beasts like the quad-core Tegra 3 or Qualcomm’s S4 chips, but it provides a good mix of performance and value. MediaTek has packed in dual 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 cores and a PowerVR SGX Series 5 GPU for added multimedia muscle. They’ve also bundled their own tried-and-tested 3G/HSPA modem, and the whole package is ready to run Android 4.0. It’ll handle cameras up to 8MP and can output 1080P video on displays up to a 1280 x 720 resolution.That should make the MT6577 an appealing option for manufacturers who want to offer up low-end phones with performance and features that are more on par with mid-range Android offerings. As Engadget notes, several manufacturers have built devices with MediaTek chips before — including ZTE, Lenovo, and Gigabyte. While they may not have the same amount of street cred as Samsung or HTC, they could certainly leverage the MT6577 to make inroads in emerging markets — or in more established markets by offering up some slick, cut-price pay-as-you-go Android smartphones.More at MediaTeklast_img read more

168 Bangladeshi workers stuck in Dubai

first_imgDozens of blue-collar Bangladeshi workers at a factory in Dubai are preparing to sue their employer as he has not paid them in months, reports UNB.They are among a group of 300 workers stuck there without money and food. Some of them have become illegal residents after their visas expired and the company has taken no step to renew them.Bangladesh consulate’s first secretary (labour) Fakir Muhammad Munawar Hossain told UNB that 168 of the workers are Bangladeshis. “We’re in touch with them,” he said.One of them told Khaleej Times that they were penniless and had no food to eat. “Our visas are expired and our passports are still with the employer. We cannot work elsewhere as we don’t have our documents,” he said.Dar Al Ber Society charity has been distributing food items and conducted a medical camp at the workers’ accommodation on Wednesday after learning about the situation from an Indian expat.Munawar said the workers were employed by a “reputable Indian construction company” which recently went bankrupt and that some workers had not been paid in six or more months.Most of the workers’ salaries range in between 700 and 1,500 dirham (roughly Tk 16,000 and Tk 34,500).The employer, who has not been named, promised to clear the dues at the earliest, Khaleej Times reported.The UAE is one of the most preferred destinations of Bangladeshi workers in the Middle-East. Last year, they sent back $2,425.4 million or 15.6 per cent of the total remittance.Munawar said they were providing the workers with legal assistance and food but solving the problem will be a bit complex under the local law.He also spoke about an alternative. “If they give up on their demand, they can go back with the guarantee money.”But the Bangladeshi workers told him that they will move the court. “The procedures can take about seven months,” the first secretary said. “We’ll assist anyone willing to file cases and help those who want to go back.”Munawar said the problem being faced by the Bangladeshi workers was not uncommon. “Many companies are being shut down regularly and we’re doing whatever we can to help our workers,” he said.But the situation appeared to be very grim for the workers. One of them told the newspaper that they had to depend on the mercy of the passerby or nearby cafeterias for meals.”It’s too embarrassing to beg for food. We came here to work with dignity … not to beg or become illegal residents,” he said.last_img read more
