2026 World Cup: FIFA as human rights rule-giver

first_img Protecting journalistsInternational bodies Freedom of expression Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes FIFA’s long-awaiting decision to include human rights criteria in the choice of countries to host the World Cup, but questions its implementation. The names of the countries that will host the 2026 FIFA World Cup were announced today. RSF_en Help by sharing this information June 13, 2018 2026 World Cup: FIFA as human rights rule-giver In its candidacy guide, published in May 2017, FIFA insists on its determination to ensure that the procedure for choosing World Cup hosts was beyond reproach, while in a separate document issued the same month, FIFA announced that it is “committed to respecting human rights in accordance with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.” As regards the choice of a country to host the 2026 World Cup, FIFA requested a clear committment to human rights, including the freedom to inform, from candidate countries. So far, so good.“As long as it is really implemented, we can only welcome FIFA’s seductive promise to base the selection of World Cup host countries on rigorous criteria regarding human rights, including press freedom,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “The problem is that FIFA seems to be stepping outside of its role of promoting football in order to instruct governments on the human rights policies they should adopt.”In the chapter on human rights in its document on candidate evaluation, FIFA says it will assign to the selected candidate countries a series of measures designed to improve the effectiveness of their strategy on human rights. “The host country’s implementation of additional measures defined by FIFA is obligatory,” it says.But FIFA’s selection is based solely on the undertakings given by the candidate country and the dossier it provides, even if the external evaluation commissioned by FIFA confirms the existence of threats to human rights and press freedom in the candidate country.This was the case with Morocco, one of the countries that was being considered as the host of the 2026 World Cup, and the three countries whose joint bid was accepted today: Mexico, the United States and Canada. In these circumstances, it is the credibility of the measures recommended by FIFA that are questionable.Morocco, Mexico, the United States and Canada are ranked 135th, 147th, 45th and 18th respectively in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index.

Myanmar court confirms seven-year jail terms for Reuters journalists

first_img May 26, 2021 Find out more January 10, 2019 – Updated on January 11, 2019 Myanmar court confirms seven-year jail terms for Reuters journalists “Everything about this case, both the substance and its conduct, called for their convictions to be overturned, but Myanmar’s justice system has shown its determination until the very end to punish Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo although they just did their job as reporters,” said Daniel Bastard, the head of RSF’s Asia-Pacific desk. MyanmarAsia – Pacific Media independenceProtecting sources Armed conflictsImprisonedJudicial harassment to go further RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled to learn that Myanmar’s high court today upheld the seven-year jail sentences of Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo on appeal. RSF now urges the country’s highest authorities to end their nightmare. In a shocking decision handed down this morning in Yangon, the high court also upheld their convictions on charges of violating the Official Secrets Act. It concluded the utterly iniquitous judicial process to which these two journalists have been subjected ever since their arrest in a trap set by the police in December 2017.

Their arrest was regarded as a punishment orchestrated by the security forces. News RSF issued an “incident report” in October about the threat to Myanmar’s position in the World Press Freedom Index resulting from the deterioration in “environment and self-censorship,” “transparency” and “media independence” – three of the seven indicators used to determine a country’s ranking.

Carnegie Management sued for damaging non-paying tenants’ credit

first_imgThe tenant’s argument relies in part on an executive order Gov. Andrew Cuomo penned last spring after the state legislature gave him new authority to combat the pandemic. The May 7 order mandated that no landlord or landlord agent could solicit or receive fees for late payment of rent from March 20 to Aug. 20.From mid-May to July, the plaintiffs allege, Carnegie Management repeatedly threatened to report their rental arrears to credit bureaus. A damaged credit report, the tenants point out, can impair their financial future, such as by hindering their ability to buy a house or get a job. (A 2015 city law prevents employers from seeking or using workers’ or job applicants’ credit histories, except in very limited circumstances.)The suit asserts that Carnegie Management emailed one of the plaintiffs, promising “distasteful” legal action and spelling out how damaging a bad credit report could be.“We will litigate till judgement and full recovery of our justified rent, legal fees and potentially taking back possession of our apartment,” the email allegedly read. “It will undoubtedly adversely affect your credit rating for a long time, which is pretty costly in the process of life.”After Carnegie Management’s collection attempts failed, tenants received notices from third-party collection agency NCSPlus Incorporated, their lawsuit claims.Carnegie Management’s Isaac Jacobowitz said the firm has worked with tenants and offered financial relief during the pandemic.Some tenants, he said, were not satisfied with the relief offers, and are attempting to leverage the state’s eviction protections to their advantage. Jacobowitz said one of the plaintiffs vacated the building more than a year ago, sublet the apartment, but has not been paying rent, while another tenant was able to pay but chose not to.“Those tenants who steadfastly refused to pay or negotiate and/or ignored communications, were sent to a collection agency,” said Jacobowitz. “It is standard practice of landlords to refer tenants who owe arrears to collection agencies, but we only do it as a last resort, if we are unable to reach an amicable agreement with a tenant or former tenant.”Jack Lester, the attorney representing the plaintiffs, said that even before Covid, retaliating against tenants for organizing is illegal.“The tenants got together to communicate, organize and bargain collectively with the landlord,” said Lester. “Rather than engage them that way, and negotiate, he’s seeking to ruin their lives.”In 2019, the state legislature banned so-called tenant blacklists, which landlords use to see housing court records of people seeking apartments. However, the law is enforced only by the attorney general’s office and there is no way to tell if a landlord uses a blacklist to reject a potential tenant.Credit reports can also lead landlords to turn away rental applicants. Lester said he hopes lawmakers such as state Sen. Julia Salazar will take up the issue and beef up enforcement of the 2019 law, which he likened to “Swiss cheese.”“The legislature has provided tenants with the right to withhold rent [in some cases] but leaves tenants vulnerable to having their credit destroyed,” said Lester. “It’s a right with no means to carry out that right.”Contact Georgia Kromrei Message* Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink TagsbushwickJulia SalazarReal Estate LawsuitsRental Marketcenter_img Email Address* Full Name* Clockwise from left: 248 McKibbin Street, 586 Hart Street and 345 Eldert Street in Brooklyn (Google Maps)Tenants are seeking class-action status in a lawsuit alleging that Carnegie Management engaged in unfair and deceptive business practices at four of its Brooklyn buildings.Five tenants at 345 Eldert Street allege that in retaliation for their organizing and not paying rent, Carnegie reported the unpaid debts and fees to debt collectors and credit bureaus. The case, filed Wednesday, argues that tenants at 342 Eldert Street, 586 Hart Street, 248 McKibbin Street and 15 Judge Street in Bushwick experienced the same treatment.The debt which Carnegie allegedly reported included late fees and penalties, inflating the totals that marred the tenants’ credit histories. The lawsuit alleges that the “inaccurate” reporting of rental arrears, a practice barred by New York’s general business law, caused “lasting and permanent financial consequences.”ADVERTISEMENTRead moreNew York halts evictions statewide due to coronavirusRetail landlords create blacklist of tenants who aren’t paying rentlast_img read more

Unleash your creative potential: Three steps

first_imgCreativity isn’t the sole purview of the typical “creative types.”In fact, humans have a natural ability to come up with fresh, new ideas, Tom Kelly, general manager of the design and development firm IDEO, told THINK 16 attendees Wednesday.“You just have to unlock it,” he said.Too often, employees lack “creative confidence:” the ability to come up with ideas and the courage to act on them.Kelly advised taking a three-step approach to developing creative confidence:1. Start with empathy. Add more human-centered content to your work, or think more deeply about your members or fellow employees.Another route is blending technology with humanity. Kelly cited the example of Doug Dietz, who sold MRI machines to hospitals. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Kimia Farma puts in place mask and hand sanitizer rationing to ensure availability

first_imgPanic buying has triggered a price surge for the items both online and offline in the last two days. A box of face masks now selling for an average of Rp 300,000 (US$ 21) – a whopping 1,500 percent increase from the original average of Rp 20,000 per box.Read also: Panic buying hits Jakarta supermarkets as govt announces first COVID-19 cases Following the rationing action, one person can only buy two masks at Kimia Farma outlets at a price point of Rp 2,000 per piece and a 500-ml bottle of antiseptic gel at a price of Rp 50,200 per bottle. Kimia Farma president director Verdi Budidarmo said the company had 4,000 boxes or 215,000 masks, adding that it had ordered more. “We are currently ordering as many as 7.2 million masks for  future needs,” said Verdi. Masks and hand sanitizers are among the most-sought after items in the country. Customers have been swarming supermarkets and drugstores following President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo’s announcement of the country’s first two confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Monday.Erick called on the private sector to participate in maintaining the stock and availability of masks and hand sanitizer in the market by not hoarding goods or trying to mark up the prices amid the increasing demand. Topics : State-owned pharmaceutical company PT Kimia Farma has limited the number of masks and hand sanitizer available for purchase at its 1,300 stores nationwide to ensure the products’ availability in the long run amid panic buying prompted by the COVID-19 spread in Indonesia.”Kimia Farma carried out the measure starting Jan. 10 to anticipate the coronavirus outbreak,” State-owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir said during a site visit to a Kimia Farma outlet in Menteng, Central Jakarta, on Wednesday. “I have checked that both masks and hand sanitizer are available in Kimia Farma stores but they have started to limit the products.”Erick said he wanted to make sure that stores do not inflate the price of the products.last_img read more

Serbia duo put club rivalry aside

first_img The City full-back said: “It doesn’t concern me. I have known [Branislav] since we were kids – I want to win the title, he wants to win the title. “That’s normal, but to be honest, we don’t talk about things to do with our clubs a lot.” Ivanovic’s Chelsea currently sit four points clear of second-placed Liverpool at the top of the table, with City a further two points and two places behind. However, they have two games in hand on the three sides above them – which also include Arsenal – and Kolarov knows there is little margin for error as the season approaches its climax. He said: “It will 100 per cent be very difficult to the very end because now we have played two games fewer, and we need to win them. “It’s very important we do that because we want to keep things in our own hands. We have 12 more games to play and every single one of them is going to be tough. “This is the important stage of the season and we have to hold our nerve. It is the team that handles the pressure better that will win.” Ivanovic’s future has been the topic of speculation in recent months, with big-spending Paris St Germain having been linked with him. Aleksandar Kolarov and Branislav Ivanovic will put their club rivalry aside to serve Serbia’s cause this week. However, the 30-year-old, who has reportedly opened talks over a new deal at Stamford Bridge, insists he is content as he attempts to increase his medal collection under manager Jose Mourinho. Asked if he was as happy as he has ever been at Chelsea, the Serbia skipper said: “I can say yes because, at the moment, the team is doing well and things are going right for us. “We have improved as a team since the beginning of the season. It looks like we are a very strong team, but we have the potential to make and build an amazing team. “Yes, I’m happy at the moment. But I prefer to look forward rather than back. You don’t get a chance during your career to look back. “You must be focussed. When I have finished my career, I will have time to look back and realise how successful I have been.” Serbia have been drawn in Group I for the Euro 2016 qualifying campaign along with Portugal, Denmark, Armenia and Albania and acting coach Ljubinko Drulovic, who led the nation to European Under-19s glory last year, will take charge for the game at the Aviva Stadium following Sinisa Mihajlovic’s departure. Ivanovic knows exactly what to expect from the Ireland team after coming up against many of Martin O’Neill’s players in the Premier League, and he is preparing himself for a battle. He said: “We have played a lot of times against Irish players and those guys are tough. “You have to be especially motivated always and we have to be aware of that when we play tomorrow night.” The 28-year-old Manchester City defender and his Chelsea counterpart may be battling it out for the Barclays Premier League title on the domestic front, but will team up at international level on Wednesday night for a friendly against Ireland. Kolarov picked up his first winners’ medal of the campaign on Sunday as City came from behind to beat Sunderland in the Capital One Cup final at Wembley and although his compatriot is determined to ensure he does not add a league title to that, none of that will be on their minds in Dublin.

MLB’s amazing crop of 2019 rookies is worth stopping for a moment to appreciate

first_imgTommy Edman, Cardinals: He’s in a bit of a funk lately, but Edman had an .814 OPS through 29 games and had worked his way to the leadoff spot in the St. Louis order.Nick Senzel, Reds: He’s had his ups and downs, but I feel pretty confident saying this: When we look back at the rookie class of 2019 in five or 10 years, Senzel will be much more prominently featured in the retrospective. Nate Lowe, Rays: The other Lowe rookie on Tampa Bay’s roster (same spelling, different pronunciations), Nate has an .875 OPS in 30 games. And then I drove to the office. By the time I’d gotten there, it seemed that most of Milwaukee was in an uproar, and fans in Houston and Pittsburgh and other places were perturbed, too. How in the world could I leave Keston Hiura, Yordan Alvarez, Bryan Reynolds and about a dozen rookies off that poll? Had I ever even watched baseball? MORE: How to watch “ChangeUp,” an MLB whip-around show, for free on DAZNI tried to respond to the angries with the truth. Twitter only has four poll spots, I wasn’t saying these were the only four good rookies or even the four best rookies, etc. With the damage somewhat mitigated, I put up another poll, this time with Hiura, Alvarez, Reynolds and Eloy Jimenez. Thing is, even that one didn’t satiate the masses. Still waiting for Oscar Mercado— Brian Baker (@Bizake13) August 8, 2019Sheesh, right? But here’s the thing: The fact that so many fan bases can be agitated by a single Twitter poll about rookie baseballers speaks volumes about the quality of rookie baseballers this season. Truth is, it’s pretty incredible, and I wasn’t the only one to have that moment of clarity. Seriously though, you ain’t lying. 2019 really does have an absolutely stacked rookie class. Never realized how insanely deep it really is.— Tommy Malecki (@tmalecki15) August 8, 2019We are watching a special season from the youngsters, folks. With more than a month-and-a-half left in the season, Tatis and Alonso already have bWAR numbers of at least 4.0. Reynolds and Alex Verdugo are above 3.0. Alvarez, Brandon Lowe and Victor Robles are north of 2.0. Eleven more rookies have bWAR numbers of at least 1.0, again, with seven weeks remaining in the 2019 season. Before we go any further, let’s look at the results of those two polls. Here’s the first one (Tatis was always leading, but the numbers were a little closer before San Diego fans got a hold of it in the evening hours on the West Coast). Ten years from now, which standout 2019 rookie hitter will have had the best career?— Ryan Fagan (@ryanfagan) August 8, 2019And here’s the second poll.Sheesh. Few things get baseball twitter people more upset that a perceived slight of their favorite rookie.So here’s Poll No. 2: Ten years from now, which of these rookie hitters will have had a better career?— Ryan Fagan (@ryanfagan) August 8, 2019Oh, and we haven’t even mentioned the rookie pitchers. Mike Soroka has a 4.0 bWAR in Atlanta and John “Bright Spot” Means has a 3.5 bWAR in Baltimore. And then you have rookies like Chris Paddack, Spencer Turnbull, Zach Plesac, Zac Gallen, Cal Quantrill and, oh yeah, Marlins rookie Sandy Alcantarra made the NL All-Star team before struggling a bit. But we’re just talking about the batters today. MORE: The social media initiative that MLB hopes will attract young fansWe’ve mentioned Bichette, Guerrerro Jr., Tatis Jr., Alonso, Hiura, Verdugo, Alvarez, Reynolds, Jimenez, Lowe and Robles (and I can almost guarantee you somebody just got mad at the perceived slight in the order I listed these guys). The list of rookie hitters worth a mention is just as long, if not longer. Here’s a quick rundown:Oscar Mercado, Indians: Traded by St. Louis to Cleveland for two players still in the minors, Mercado has provided much-needed outfield offense in his 300 PAs, racking up nine homers, nine stolen bases, 47 runs scored, a 1.5 bWAR and .781 OPS. Kevin Newman, Pirates: He’s played mostly shortstop and second base and been a consistent source of offense in 86 games, rolling up a .304 average, 10 stolen bases and 40 RBIs.Christian Walker, Diamondbacks: OK, he technically qualifies because he hadn’t eclipsed rookie requirements heading into this season, even though this is the FIFTH year he’s worn a big-league uniform (his MLB debut was 2014!). All that aside, he’s been excellent, with 20 homers and an .829 OPS in his first real, extended shot in the bigs. Mike Yastrzemski, Giants: Carl’s grandson has been great for the Giants, with 11 homers, 37 RBIs and an .815 OPS in 64 games. Cavan Biggo, Blue Jays: Yep, another legacy big-leaguer. Craig’s son’s average isn’t great, but he has 10 homers and a .341 on-base percentage in 60 games. Austin Riley, Braves: Atlanta fans clamored for his promotion for a long time, and he immediately rewarded that fandom, collecting nine homers and 25 RBIs in his first 18 MLB games. He’s slowed down since then, but he has 17 homers in the bigs. Aristides Aquino, Reds: I know, I know. He JUST got called up, but he has three homers and eight RBIs in his first seven games, and he did this yesterday …Just checked the top exit velocities for yesterday….Aristides Aquino 👀👀👀 pic.twitter.com/1wHu6t4r5D— Daren Willman (@darenw) August 9, 2019Luis Arraez, Twins: He’s the only batter in Minnesota not slugging home runs at a record pace, but he’s batting .353 in 190 PAs, which ain’t too shabby.Will Smith, Dodgers: All the rookie catcher does, it seems, is slug clutch late-inning home runs to help the Dodgers win baseball games. Michael Chavis, Red Sox: Here’s how good the other 2019 rookies are: A RED SOX ROOKIE has 18 homers already and you’ve probably only heard of him in passing.  True story: I had MLB Network on at the house as I was getting ready Thursday morning, and it showed another highlight of another great game by Blue Jays rookie Bo Bichette. That sparked a thought, and that thought sparked a poll idea. Bichette, as you know, is just one of several famous sons succeeding in a big way in the majors this season. I wondered what baseball Twitter people thought of those three — Bichette, Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Fernando Tatis Jr. — in terms of who would have the best career. So I put those three guys in a poll and added Pete Alonso because Twitter gives four options (but only four options, which is important to this story). last_img read more
