Police put pressure on daily newspaper that broke story of new Sars case

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Organisation Follow the news on China RSF_en ChinaAsia – Pacific News to go further ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts Reporter for the newspaper Zeng Wenqiong, broke the news in December that a Guangzhou television producer was ill with Sars virus. Since 7 January, the management of the paper have been saying she was on holiday. According to the Hong Kong-based Information Centre for Human Rights and Democracy, the provincial authorities accused the newspaper of publishing the news without official permission.Cheng, 38, is also editor in chief of Xin Jing Bao (Beijing News) a new daily launched in November 2003. The rising journalistic star set out with Xin Jing Bao to publish “forbidden news” and biting investigations on the realities of Chinese society.In March 2003, the newspaper hit the headlines with its revelations about the death of a young graphic artist Sun Zhigang, who was beaten to death in a Guangzhou police station. The editor and six staff of a daily newspaper that broke the story of a new Sars case in December were questioned by police over alleged corruption, in an obvious attempt to silence them, said Reporters Without Borders (Reporters sans frontières).Cheng Yizhong, editor in chief of Nanfang Dushi Bao (Southern Metropolis Daily), and the six other staff members of the tabloid were questioned by Guangzhou police on 6 January.”There is no doubt that this corruption case is a pretext to try to silence this newspaper, known for its compromising revelations for local and national authorities,” said Reporters Without Borders. In targeting Cheng and the Nanfang Dushi Bao staff the authorities were sending a new and very clear message to all the media to discourage it from reporting freely on Sars. Reporters Without Borders called on the World Health Organisation to intervene with the Chinese authorities to allow free reporting of news on the epidemic. In 2003, censorship and then propaganda kept the public in ignorance of the reality of the epidemic in the country.Among those arrested at the newspaper on 6 January were staff from the business services. They were questioned for several hours over alleged corruption. Cheng was released the following day and was able to return to his office. The others have reportedly not resumed work.center_img News Help by sharing this information China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison March 12, 2021 Find out more News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes A rising star of investigating journalism in China, Cheng Yizhong, was questioned by the police with six others staff of the Nanfang Dushi Bao.

Pasadena Police Department to Step Up Enforcement for Distracted Drivers

Required fields are marked * Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday In an effort to make our roads safer, Pasadena Police Department is deploying extra traffic enforcement officers on Friday, April 1, 2016 to stop distracted driving. Pasadena PD is spreading the message that distracted drivers are not only a danger to themselves, but everyone else on the road.Using an electronic device while driving, is a serious safety problem. Most drivers know that texting while driving is a dangerous behavior, but many still use their cell phones and other mobile devices when they are behind the wheel, putting themselves and others at risk. Many drivers see distracted driving as risky when other drivers do it, but do not recognize how their own driving deteriorates.In 2013, there were 3,154 people killed and an estimated 424,000 injured nationwide in crashes involving a distracted driver. That same year, 10 percent of fatal crashes were reported as distraction-affected crashes.While anything that takes your eyes off the road, hands off the wheel, or mind off the task of driving is a hazard, there is heightened concern about the risks of texting while driving because it combines all three types of distraction – visual, manual and cognitive. In addition, most drivers aren’t aware that just talking on a cell phone, hand held or hands free, can lead to “inattention blindness” as critical brain functions needed for driving are used for cell phone talking.Pasadena Police Department recommends the following safety measures:You can:• Turn off electronic devices and put them out of reach before starting to drive• Speak up when you are a passenger and your driver uses an electronic device while driving. Offer to make the call for the driver, so his or her full attention stays on the driving taskParents can:• Be good role models for young drivers and set a good example. Talk with your teens about responsible driving• If you know your teen is on the road – don’t call or text them until you know they have reached their destinationEmployers can:• Adopt, publicize, and enforce company policies that prohibit employees from texting or talking on hand-held cell phones while in a company vehicle or in a personal vehicle while using a company issued cell phone.Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Car giant drive diversity with move to the internet

first_img Comments are closed. Jaguar and Land Rover have managed to double the proportion of women andethnic minorities they have recruited as apprentices after offering the jobsonline. In a joint campaign the companies tried recruiting apprentices this year usingthe web, despite the general belief that such recruits tend not to be internet,or PC, literate. The vehicle manufacturers had 500 responses for only 50 positions on the oldrecruitment drive and all openings were filled through the web-based applicationprocess. Of the successful recruits 10 per cent were women and 10 per cent were fromethnic minorities – double the proportion employed in last year’s recruitmentdrive. Graham Thompsett, recruitment manager for Jaguar and Land Rover, saidcandidates were also recruited four months earlier than in previous yearsbecause of the move online. “It is dangerous to assume people aren’t internet literate. We arelooking for the skill base of the future.” he said. “We’ve now got aprocess to build on. It is not perfect and lots can be done to improve it, butfor the manufacturing industry, the results are very good indeed.” Jaguar and Land Rover were able to take the interview stage out of therecruitment process by choosing candidates suitable for assessment centresusing an online competency-based application form. They also found they were able to monitor responses and manage data moreeasily as well as provide metrics to highlight various aspects of thecandidates, including their ethnicity and gender.
