CITY VIEWS: DO YOU TRUST NUCLEAR ENERGY?

first_img KCS-content CITY VIEWS: DO YOU TRUST NUCLEAR ENERGY? MICHAEL HOWARD | KENNEDYS“I absolutely trust nuclear energy because it’s going in the right direction. While it wasn’t the brightest idea to put nuclear energy plants in areas that are prone to earthquakes, we need more analysis on how we can safely contain potential meltdowns.”GRANT ROBERTSON | MILES SMITH“Before the earthquake and tsunami, I definitely thought there were no safety hazards about nuclear energy. But because of the events that have transpired in Japan, it has definitely changed my view of nuclear energy.”MICHAEL BIRKS | ADSATIS“I continue to support nuclear energy. We can destroy our world with mining fossil fuels, but nuclear is safe. We need to continue to invest in nuclear and improve safety issues because in fifty years there will only be nuclear energy.” Tags: NULL whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼center_img by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBeZen HeraldNASA’s Voyager 2 Has Entered Deep Space – And It Brought Scientists To Their KneesZen HeraldTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Government shuts down independent daily for three months

first_imgNews BelarusEurope – Central Asia News to go further The newspaper Ekho, which had planned to run Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazetaarticles, was also shut down for three months by the information ministry on5 June, without breaking the press law in any way. The Ekho issue of 4 Junewas not printed. Officially, this was for technical reasons._________Reporters Without Borders called on the information minister to rescind his decree of 28 May shutting down the independent daily Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta and its monthly supplement BDG – Dla Sluzhebnoho Polzovaniya for three months for allegedly “breaking the news media law.”The forced closure of Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta is “a new offensive in the government’s flagrant harassment of the independent press” and is “clearly aimed at silencing journalists who criticise President Lukashenko,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to information minister Michail Padhajny. “This measure also breaks the law because you did not deign to wait until the courts reached a decision on this matter,” Ménard added.Belorusskaya Delovaya Gazeta had received several warnings as a result of its reports about an affair between President Lukashenko and Miss Russia, Svetlana Koroleva, and the ongoing trial of businessman Mikhaïl Leonov for alleged embezzlement of public funds. When threatened with closure for defaming the president and covering a trial without the court’s permission, the newspaper had appealed to the supreme economic court, which has not yet issued its ruling.At least five newspapers have been temporarily shut down or prevented from appearing on a range of pretexts in the past six months. Information minister Mikhail Podgainy on 24 April ordered the closure of the independent regional newspaper Pravinstsyalka for three months because it changed its legal address and the subjects it writes about without coordinating with the information ministry and local authorities. A regional court on 19 May refused to register the new legal address of the newspaper Volny Gorad, thereby preventing the newspaper itself from being registered. On 3 February, the court responsible for commercial matters in the Grodno region suspended the commercial licence of Ramuald Ulan, the founder of Novaya Gazeta Smorgoni, an independent weekly in the town of Smorgon, thereby condemning the newspaper to closure. The executive committee accused Ulan of violating the right to work, tax legislation and fire regulations in 2000 and 2002. On 26 November 2002, the information ministry invalidated the registration of the independent weekly Mestnoye Vremya on the pretext that its new address had not been legalised, although the law makes no provision for such a drastic sanction in such circumstances. Launched at the start of November, the newspaper was able to bring out only three issues.The sentences of hard labour passed on Mikolai Markevich, editor of the regional newspaper Pagonya, and one of his journalists, Pavel Mazheiko, for insulting the president were reduced in spring 2003 and they were allowed to serve out the rest of their sentences in their home town. But Viktar Ivaskevich, the editor of the newspaper Rabochy, is still in a labour camp for an article he wrote and published accusing President Lukashenko of corruption.

Murder of Judge Esther Salas’ son highlights surge in threats to federal judges and their families

first_imgBecause the ban was lifted by a judge, many very bad and dangerous people may be pouring into our country. A terrible decision— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2017After the president’s tweets about Robart, the U.S. Marshals estimated that there were 1,100 serious threats against the judge, the ABA said.According to the U.S. Marshals, inappropriate communications or threats to protected court family members have also been on the rise.There were 4,542 reports of threats or inappropriate communications to family members in 2018.In 2014, that number was 768. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved. NiseriN/iStockBy JACK DATE and LUKE BARR, ABC News(NEW YORK) — The murder of a New Jersey federal judge’s son has put the spotlight on an alarming trend that officials say continues to rise: threats against federal judges and their families.The son of Judge Esther Salas, a freshman at Catholic University in Washington, D.C., was killed in the family’s home in North Brunswick, New Jersey, on Sunday night and her husband was also shot multiple times and is in critical but stable condition, sources told ABC News. Salas was not injured and the suspect remains at large, a law enforcement official said.Judge Salas, who is now under 24-hour protection, had received threats in the past and authorities are investigating whether there is any connection between those prior threats and the shooting, sources said.According to the U.S. Marshals Service, who are tasked with protecting federal judges, there were 4,449 threats and inappropriate communications against protected persons in 2019.In 2015, that number was 926.The U.S. Marshals Service says the increase is due to “improved effectiveness in data collection and reporting of potential threats.”Over that same time period, the number of threats investigated rose from 305 in 2015 to 373 in 2019, peaking at 531 in 2018.A day after federal Judge James Robart issued a temporary restraining order on President Donald Trump’s first travel ban on Feb. 3, 2017, threats against the judge came flooding in.According to the American Bar Association, before Robart left the Seattle, Washington, courthouse, his personal information was put out on the internet, along with his wife’s information .last_img read more
