He is the second video reporter for a Burmese exile radio and TV station based in Oslo to be convicted in the space of a month. “The military junta has again expressed its phobia of uncontrolled video reporting by imposing a heavy prison sentence on a Democratic Voice of Burma video journalist,” the two organisations said. “He should be freed at once, as should Hla Hla Win, the young women reporter who was given a 20-year sentence four weeks ago after providing DVB with video material.”Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association added: “As regards media freedom, we believe that none of the conditions are being met for this year’s elections to be considered free and democratic.” At least 15 journalists and netizens are currently detained in Burma.Ngwe Soe Lin was convicted under the Electronics Act and the Immigration Emergency Provisions Act. He was arrested on 26 June 2009 as he was leaving an Internet café in a Rangoon suburb with one of his friends, who was arrested and interrogated by the police for nearly two months before being released.Ngwe Soe Lin’s sister-in-law, Aye Mee San, said special police officers came to their home three days after his arrest and confiscated a video camera. She added that Ngwe Soe Lin’s lawyer intends to appeal against his conviction.Aye Chan Naing, the head of the Oslo-based DVB, confirmed to Reporters Without Borders that Ngwe Soe Lin worked for the station. Referring to the sentence, he said: “It is a clear sign of the nature of the threats hanging over those who work as journalists, and on the control that is going to be exerted over the media prior to the elections.” May 26, 2021 Find out more MyanmarAsia – Pacific US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture News May 12, 2021 Find out more

ORLANDO, Fla. – When a team puts 42 points on the board, its punter rarely receives much praise, let alone the game’s MVP honors. Consider Saturday’s Champs Sports Bowl a rarity.While the Wisconsin defense was shutting down quarterback Christian Ponder and the Florida State offense in the first quarter Saturday night, Seminole senior punter Graham Gano was doing his best to keep the Badgers off the scoreboard, a goal he almost single-handedly achieved.Gano’s first punt bounced at the UW 3-yard line and took a right turn out of bounds. Two first downs later, the Badgers were forced to punt.Gano’s next punt sailed over David Gilreath’s head, hit at the 1-yard line and stuck on the Citrus Bowl turf. Again, the Badgers only managed a pair of first downs before being forced to surrender the ball back to the ‘Noles.Gano’s third punt of the first quarter was angled very similarly to his first, toward the front right corner of the Wisconsin end zone. The ball hit near the 1-yard line and again took a right turn out of bounds. All three of the Badgers’ first-quarter possessions started inside their 3-yard line, the last two of which were spotted at the one.“The whole first half we were battling to get past the 50-yard line,” UW center John Moffitt said. “That’s not anybody’s fault, that’s just the punter. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a punter that good.“Has anybody ever kicked three inside the five before?”Interestingly enough, Gano’s feat came one game after Cal Poly kicker Andrew Gardner missed three extra points at Camp Randall Stadium in Wisconsin‘s overtime victory over the Mustangs.The Badgers didn’t make it past midfield until the second quarter and failed to reach the end zone until T.J. Theus’ 20-yard grab from quarterback Dustin Sherer with only 4:06 left in the game, much of which can be attributed to Gano and his ability to shift the field position game in FSU’s favor.“It’s frustrating, but we kind of did it to ourselves,” Sherer said. “We never could get the ball moving, we gave them a short field, they could punt us and pin us deep. We got out of there a couple times, but we would shoot ourselves in the foot on third down. That’s just how it went.”It put a lot of pressure on the UW defense as well, a unit that held its own in the first half, but couldn’t stay with the speed demons of the ACC after the intermission.“[Gano] was definitely a factor,” senior cornerback Allen Langford said. “It affected time of possession and field position and they definitely owned both of those and that’s why they got the ‘W.’”The Badgers stood helplessly against Gano’s (48.2 yards per punt) first-half dominance, but they beat themselves in the second half. Running back P.J. Hill and Sherer each had fumbles that led to Seminole touchdowns after halftime. Wisconsin‘s three total fumbles set a Champs Sports Bowl record and all three were converted into touchdowns, two of which were scored directly by the defense. Derek Nicholson (first quarter) and Dekoda Watson (fourth quarter) each scooped up Sherer fumbles and ran them back for scores.“They’re fast,” Sherer said. “Their defensive line did a great job of getting pressure on me; their [defensive backs] did a great job of covering down field. There were parts where I probably should have got the ball out and didn’t, but they played well so hats off to them.“I knew going into it I had to play well because they were going to put nine guys in the box to stop our run. And I didn’t play well and we lost.”
21 November 2011Durban is ready to welcome over 15 000 delegates and more than 10 000 observers from over 190 countries for the UN Climate Change Conference kicking off in exactly one week, says Durban/Ethekwini Mayor James Nxumalo.The 17th Conference of the Parties (COP 17) to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change takes place at Durban’s International Convention Centre from 28 November to 9 December.“As these delegates, observers and NGOs arrive, we must ensure that we are prepared to host them in the warmest way possible – warm people, warm food, warm beaches, warmth all around,” Nxumalo told journalists on Saturday.“But being the warmest place to be also signals to us that our earth is getting warmer, and we must do something about that!”Opportunity to showcase the cityThe city will ensure that when delegates leave the climate change talks, they will be well versed with Durban’s Greening Projects.Nxumalo said hosting COP 17 meant a massive boost for the city’s, and the province’s, economy.“We will be benefitting enormously through the huge international exposure and the many economic benefits. One example is our accommodation. I am sure that this will be fully booked for the event period, with over 160 000 bed-nights of accommodation being sold.”As the host city of COP 17, there is a golden opportunity for Durban to communicate its achievements to local and international media.“Durban’s bold response to the challenges of climate change has positioned the city as a global leader in the field of climate protection planning,” Nxumalo said.‘A truly African city’“It is a truly African city, a place of rich contrasts where sophisticated, first-world urban development and high density townships give way to undisturbed rural landscapes where people follow traditional African lifestyles.”During COP 17, the mayor will be sharing experiences and strategies to improve climate change mitigation and adaptation with mayors from around the world.Over 550 volunteers will be deployed throughout the city during the conference. The volunteers will wear an official, easily identifiable green-and-white COP 17 Volunteer uniform, and will be stationed throughout the city, at shuttle pick-up points and bicycle nodes.Source: BuaNews

About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool defender van Dijk lauds Shaqiri: He’s become our game-changerby Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveXherdan Shaqiri has become Liverpool’s game-changer, according to his teammate Virgil van Dijk.The Swiss came off the bench to score two goals in the Reds’ 3-1 win over Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday.”You can concede and it happened,” van Dijk told the club’s website. “The thing then was to bounce back and make sure we kept pushing, putting the pressure on them and being patient.”That’s what we did and in the end, big Shaq came on and did the job for us.”He is a fantastic player. He showed it since the first game against Manchester United in America [in pre-season]. He is something different and sometimes that’s a game-changer.”
Twitter/@CoachZachSmithThe high-scoring NCAA Football game between Ohio State quarterback Cardale Jones and Jared Foley, a Buckeyes fan that he visited in the hospital before the national championship, is quickly becoming one of the most hotly-contested video game results that we can remember. The game was originally thought to be a 91-35 win for Jones, but yesterday he clarified that he added a late touchdown to make it 98-35.Clearly, Jones wants to get credit for all of the points he scored, but he may have undersold Foley’s effort himself. In response to a t-shirt that an OSU fan created to celebrate the game, Foley claims that he actually scored 42 [email protected] I NEED ONE!! #Savage RT @Court0385: @CJ12_ @bearfoley check out the new shirts pic.twitter.com/xRauvMJbi1— Zach Sith #Zone6 (@CoachZachSmith) February 11, [email protected] it was 98-42— jared foley (@bearfoley) February 11, [email protected] yeah I scored in the finel minute— jared foley (@bearfoley) February 11, 2015Maybe Cardale can invite him to the next Taco Tuesday to make up for this discrepancy.
