Journalist gunned down in Mogadishu, 2013’s first fatality in Somalia

first_imgNews to go further Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en News Reporters Without Borders is shocked to learn that Shabelle Media Network radio and TV presenter Abdihared Osman Adan was fatally shot three times by unidentified gunmen while on his way to work this morning in Mogadishu. He died at the city’s Medina Hospital as doctors were about to operate.“At a time when the world’s eyes are turned to Africa, the international community needs to react to this death by pressing Somalia to take energetic measures in response to the constant violence against journalists,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Working as a journalist in Somalia requires permanent courage and determination. The attacks against them are targeted and unpredictable, and go unpunished. We urge the government to respond to the distress call from the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ) for the creation of a special force to protect journalists”.Aged 45, Adan was an active member of NUSOJ, the Reporters Without Borders partner organization in Somalia. He was one of the few Shabelle Media Network journalists not to live on the premises. Almost all of the news outlet’s employees prefer to live there full-time because it is protected and because the streets are so dangerous for them.Three of its journalists were murdered in 2012: Hassan Osman Abdi, its director, in January, Ahmed Ado Anshur in May and Mohamed Mohamud Turyare in October. In all, its employees have been the targets of half a dozen cases of violence, threats and intimidation in the past 12 months.Shabelle Media Network’s radio station, Radio Shabelle, won the Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize in 2010.This year has not begun well for the Somali media. Abdulaziz Abdinur Ibrahim, a journalist working for two radio stations, Dalsan and Ergo, has been held at the Central Investigation Department (CID) since 10 January after interviewing a woman who said she was raped by soldiers. Three other journalists were briefly detained. The victim finally withdrew her complaint after several days of police harassment.With 18 journalists killed in connection with their work in 2012, Somalia was Africa’s deadliest country for the media and the world’s second-most dangerous country for news providers, after Syria. NUSOJ issued a report last November about the impunity enjoyed by those who murder journalists in Somalia.More information about the murders of journalists in Somalia in 2012.Photo : ’’On Air’’ sign at Radio Shabelle (AFP PHOTO / AU-UN IST PHOTO / TOBIN JONES) Photo : Abdihared Osman Adan (Radio Shabelle) January 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Somalia Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia January 18, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalist gunned down in Mogadishu, 2013’s first fatality in Somaliacenter_img RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region News SomaliaAfrica Receive email alerts News SomaliaAfrica February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists March 2, 2021 Find out morelast_img

I can never fix the damage I have done to her,” he said.In a statement, the girl said she suffers form panic attacks, has to take sleeping pills and is also being treated for depression.She added that she never wants to see her father again.Judge John O’Hagan said he had heard many cases of sexual abuse but the fact that this was a father and daughter made it very disturbing.“The affects are forever. Isn’t it awful that a daughter never wants to see a father again. The sense of breach of trust is just awful to contemplate,” he said.He sentenced the man to five years in prison and ordered him to be placed on the sex offenders register for the rest of his life.

first_img Previous Article Next Article This week’s lettersResearch base on MBA too limited I read Philip Whiteley’s article in Personnel Today with some frustration(“What about the people?”, 25 June). The article makes some goodpoints – the need to select both candidates and courses with care, for example,and to build the MBA into an overall development plan. It was flawed, however,by being based on a study of just 20 courses, and the article failed todisclose what those courses were. In the UK there are currently more than 90full-time MBA courses – a sample of 20 is hardly a piece of fundamentalresearch. My advice to both companies and potential students is choose your course andmode of study with care – the Association of MBA’s accreditation scheme is agood start as less than 50 courses in the UK are accredited. As you will probably guess I have an MBA and am also a Fellow of the CIPD.Why did I do my MBA? Like most on my course, I was a specialist who wanted toget a better understanding of other aspects of business. Was HR in its various guises included on the course? Yes, but the most importantHR learning experience was via the large quantities of project work that formeda key element of the programme. Am I now a consultant? Yes, but anyone who hasread any of Charles Handy’s views should not be surprised by that as typicallypeople will now move in and out of employment as they seek new challengesduring their working life. In summary, I have worked in HR for more than 20 years and the complaints ofMBA students leaving straight after graduation are just the modern equivalentof those I heard 20 years ago about graduate training scheme students –”we support them for four years and then they just leave”. Any firm spending a lot of money on a training programme for an employeeshould have a career plan for that individual mapped out which will bothchallenge and utilise the new knowledge if they want them to stay. Why shouldMBA students be different from any other employee? Malcolm Green, MBA, FCIPD Wigpool Consultants MBAs: HR should be placed within business modules As a first year executive MBA student I read the article ‘What about thePeople?’ with great interest. Not wishing to blindly jump to the defence of theMBA I took time to reflect and analyse the key issues raised. This, after all,is one of the key skills taught on an MBA programme. I can see a link between issues raised by the Work Foundation research andthe wider position and status of HR. While our function fails to achieve a seatat the ‘top table’ the ‘people’ modules may struggle for attention in theuniversity classroom. A better understanding of HR issues by non-specialists, perhaps throughgreater inclusion on MBA programmes, would certainly raise the profile of thefunction. This is a circular argument and we should be asking how we can breakthat cycle. To me it is not, however, about having a wide range of HR-specific modules.In the longer term I believe it will be more effective to ensure the inclusionof the relevant HR issues within the other business modules – specificallyoperations management and strategic management. The clear business benefits of HR can only really be shown in this context.It is unfortunate that so few HR professionals undertake the qualification astheir input to group discussion could help influence this debate. With regards to the MBA being a ‘badge’ this is surely no different from anytraining intervention, unless, of course, the learning is actually applied backat the workplace. Even in the short time since commencing my MBA studies I havefelt the benefit and feel confident I am learning something of value.

It was fantastic, the Hotel Danieli was certainly the mostluxurious place I have ever stayed in -and ever likely to. My husband Bill andI were looked after so well. I got married in February and although we had a few days honeymoon then wedecided we to consider our weekend in Venice part of our honeymoon, which madeit all the more special.

Mandy Anslow Staff development officer, University of Essex Banned terms are a waste of time I’m afraid the word ‘spoon’ has always been a racist term in my book butstretching it to eggs, as Guru does, is tenuous to say the least (18 June). The political correctness that I object to is in job advertising – HRdirectors have obviously taken a leaf from estate agents. Terms that I’ve been told are a no-no include ‘Must be physically fit’ (whenthe job involves heavy lifting) or ‘A good standard of written and spokenEnglish’ (if I wanted German, would it be a problem to say so?).

Protozoans as a food source for Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba: complementary insights from stomach content, fatty acids, and stable isotopes

first_imgWe studied the diet of Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, at five stations across the southwest Atlantic sector in summer 2003 by analyzing stomach content, fatty acids, and stable isotopes on the same individuals. Our aim was to examine what each method could contribute to our understanding of krill nutrition and whether differences seen in growth rates were linked to their food. All three methods indicated clear regional differences in diet, but small ontogenetic and sex-related differences. Overall, diatoms were the most abundant item in the stomach, but at three of the stations, tintinnids, large dinoflagellates, and other armored flagellates dominated the identifiable biomass. Copepod remains were rare. Fatty acids profiles gave additional information about feeding on weakly silicified diatoms and athecate heterotrophic dinoflagellates, with the latter being the main food source at one of the stations. Two independent indices of carnivory, d15N and the fatty acid ratio 18:1(n-9)/18:1(n-7), were correlated among krill from the same swarm, suggesting consistent differences in diet between individuals. An internal index of trophic position, (i.e., d15Nglutamic acid-d15Nphenylalanine) underlined the importance of heterotrophic food for the nutrition of krill, even in summer. Highest growth rates of krill were found during a diatom bloom and coincided with a mixed diet, large digestive gland, and fast stomach passage. However, even in a nonbloom, flagellate-dominated system, krill were able to sustain medium growth rates when feeding on heterotrophic dinoflagellates. Each method supplied specific information on krill nutrition, and the true picture is only revealed when the various methods are used together.last_img

Is Brokenshire planning to end office-to-residential conversions?

first_imgEngland’s more relaxed Permitted Development (PD) rules brought in six years ago to great fanfare as a key housing policy are likely to be radically overhauled, it has been announced.Looser PD rules were trialled in 2013 and then made permanent in 2015 after being heralded as a ‘great success’ prompting at least 4,000 office-to-residential conversions to be given the green light.But the more relaxed rules have come under attack for allowing low quality construction, ‘social cleansing’ and tiny ‘micro’ apartments.The government has now committed to broaden its review of the PD rules announced during the last budget statement by Philip Hammond.The policy came under direct attack recently from both architects and surveyors including RICS.Its report into PD said that the quality of schemes varied enormously and that some were ‘extremely poor quality housing’ that offered people homes much smaller than national minimum standards without community facilities and many were built in the middle of industrial estates.MP Robert Halfon (left) has been campaigning to have the PD rules changed and yesterday asked the Secretary of State for Housing James Brokenshire to broaden his review.In response Brokenshire promised to do this, including a commitment to ensure that future office to residential developments were built with adequate access to local services for their residents.“I am content to look more broadly at where the burden lies with some of these transfers, because it is important that we get this right,” he said.    James Brokenshire Robert Halfon permitted development rights April 10, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

‘4D-printed’ materials will adapt to stimuli

first_img Read Full Story Imagine an automobile coating that changes its structure to adapt to a humid environment or a salt-covered road, better protecting the car from corrosion. Or consider a soldier’s uniform that could alter its own camouflage or more effectively protect against poison gas or shrapnel upon contact.A trio of university researchers from Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), the University of Illinois, and the University of Pittsburgh Swanson School of Engineering is proposing to advance 3D printing one step—or rather, one dimension—further. Thanks to an $855,000 grant from the United States Army Research Office, the group proposes to develop 4D materials that can exhibit behavior that changes over time.last_img
