Les chefs tribaux ont déclaré que la rudesse de l’hiver rend les camps peu sûrs et qu’ils s’inquiètent de la sécurité des protecteurs lors de la fonte des neiges au printemps,  moment où le fleuve Missouri est au plus haut.L’initiative de fermeture des camps a commencé avant le 24 janvier, jour où Donald Trump a demandé l’approbation rapide de la phase finale de l’oléoduc. Le 19 janvier, le district tribal de Cannon Ball a demandé aux protecteurs de partir et  le lendemain le conseil tribal au complet a soutenu le déménagement . Les chefs tribaux ont toutefois mentionné également les efforts du président visant à exhorter leurs supporteurs à réorienter leur mobilisation.« Nous comprenons et reconnaissons le pouvoir qu’avaient les camps en nous permettant d’avancer aussi loin dans notre lutte contre l’oléoduc de Dakota Access », déclare la tribu le 26 janvier sur sa page Facebook. « Nous maintenons cependant que, compte tenu des conditions actuelles, tant physiques que politiques, il convient que nos priorités qui étaient le maintien des camps soient à présent placées sur le plan politique et légal. Le nouveau régime ne va pas répondre aux camps avec des mesures modérées ; la tribu n’est pas disposée à mettre en danger ses citoyens, ni sa lutte contre DAPL et risquer de perdre tout ce qui a été accompli ».La tribu a reconnu dans sa déclaration que nombreux sont ceux qui veulent retourner dans les camps à cause des mesures prises par Donald Trump le 24 janvier. « Nous tenons toutefois à insister sur le fait que ce n’est pas dans de nouvelles actions dans les camps, sur le pont et sur la plateforme de forage que se gagnera notre lutte à l’avenir  », a déclaré la tribu. « Il nous faut concentrer notre énergie sur la situation politique inter-gouvernementale et non pas sur les camps. S’il vous plait, ne revenez pas et au lieu de cela placez votre cœur et vos efforts dans le soutien pour la bataille pour l’eau propre là où vous habitez de par le monde ».Le pont mentionné dans la déclaration est le pont de Backwater Bridge fermé sur la route 1806 dans le Dakota du Nord qui avait été à la fois l’objectif des protestations et un symbole de la perturbation causée par les campements qui avaient duré des mois. Les travaux restants sur le projet d’oléoduc feraient passer l’oléoduc sous le lac Oahe qui se trouve sur le fleuve Missouri, juste au nord de la réserve Sioux de Standing Rock. La société de l’oléoduc a implanté une plateforme de forage tout près du point proposé de franchissement du fleuve qui se trouve en amont des limites de la réserve de la tribu, et la tribu a des droits sur l’eau, sur la pêche et sur la chasse dans le lac.L’oléoduc d’une longueur de 1 886 kilomètres et de 76 centimètres de diamètre est sur le point de transporter plus de 2 millions de litres de pétrole par jour depuis le gisement de pétrole de Bakken situé au nord-ouest du Dakota du Nord  – en traversant le Dakota du Sud et l’Iowa – jusqu’en Illinois, d’où ils seront acheminés vers des raffineries. L’oléoduc devait passer à 800 mètres de la réserve de Standing Rock et les chefs de la tribu Sioux n’ont eu de cesse d’exprimer leurs inquiétudes concernant un éventuel déversement d’hydrocarbures qui endommagerait l’approvisionnement en eau de la réserve ainsi que la menace que l’oléoduc fait peser sur leurs sites sacrés et leurs droits issus des traités. Energy Transfer Partners, l’entreprise texane qui développe le projet, déclare que l’oléoduc sera sans danger.Article complet en anglais.

Lawrence Dallaglio answers your questions

first_imgThursday Mar 10, 2011 Lawrence Dallaglio answers your questions Last week we asked you to submit your questions for World Cup winner Lawrence Dallaglio via the Rugbydump Facebook Page . There were some good ones, so earlier this week Nick sat down with him in a pub in London for a chat.A staunch Wasps man, it would have been difficult to chat to Dallaglio without asking him about the side he played over 15 years of rugby for. He’s naturally frustrated with them being mid-table, but made it clear that coaching is not something he’s looking to get into to help.He touched on professionalism and the salary cap, and how that affects clubs and players in this age where physicality is such an integral part of the sport. Another interesting question was about the sin bin, and if ten minutes is enough of a deterrent for players with itchy fingers.All in all, he says rugby is on a good place. “I think the product on display is good. The rule changes we’ve seen in the last twelve months have made a massive difference. Much less kicking, and it seems to be quite an exciting game again,” Dallaglio said.He also tells us why it’s not a good idea to go out drinking with Jason Leonard.

Located on the periphery of the University of Lausanne, the Vortex will house nearly 1,000 students and academic guests by the end of this summer. This iconic building was financed by the Caisse de pensions de l’Etat de Vaud and built by Losinger Marazzi, with IttenBrechbühl as an architectural director. The Vortex already welcomed the 1,800 athletes taking part in the Youth Olympic Games at Lausanne from 9 to 22 January 2020. «As soon as the client confirmed the contract placement, planning went into top gear and coordination was highly focused. We had 900 days to build 900 rooms.» (Guillaume Schobinger, project manager at IttenBrechbühl). Hosting the Youth Olympic Games gave a tremendous boost to the construction of this student accommodation facility.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!Site planThe Vortex was a key selling point in the City of Lausanne’s bid to host the Games. Once the Olympic athletes had taken up residence in the Vortex last January, they were all gathered together on one single site for the first time in the history of the Games. The building’s unusual layout encouraged the various national teams to mingle with one another as athletes took advantage of the 2.8-kilometer spiral walkway to train on-site. In March, in response to the crisis linked to COVID-19, the Vortex complex was quickly made available by the Caisse de Pensions de l’Etat de Vaud to house medical personnel.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe system put in place was piloted by the Cantonal Management Staff (EMCC) and the Vaud Civil Protection (PCI) with the help and valuable experience of Youth Olympic Games, Retraites Populaires, and UNIL staff. This early summer sees the start of fit-out work on the ground floor and common areas to equip the building for its ultimate purpose; it will welcome the first students at the beginning of the academic year. The State of Vaud launched this project for a new building on the periphery of the University of Lausanne in response to the ever-increasing demand for university student accommodation on its territory.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SG«This circular building occupies a position at the center of the site. With its sleek lines, it can be perceived not only as an integral element of the overall environment but also as one building among several that will constitute the future University complex. This avoids the siloed ambiance of some modern neighborhoods where public spaces tend to be reduced to the minimum. And thanks to the new building’s impressive dimensions, it can be interpreted both as an addition to the University campus and as an element of the landscape in its own right.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe Vortex merges seamlessly into the environs of Chavannes-près-Renens and, more broadly, into the entire western sector of Lausanne.» (Jean-Pierre Dürig, the project designer) The Vortex combines many elements of the urban fabric in one single structure. With its circular design, the building functions as a landmark in the surrounding country towards which everything converges. With its accommodation units arrayed along a spiral ramp, it provides a setting where people can meet and interact. Its dimensions make it a dominant feature of the whole region, establishing a link between the city and its universities.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow less“My Buildings Are Rides”: In Conversation with Antoine PredockArticlesElementary School Vřesovice / Public Atelier + FuuzeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Route de Praz Véguey 29, 1022 Chavannes-près-Renens, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns yesterday’s shocking decision by an appeal court to confirm the 30-month jail terms that four journalists with Iwacu, one of Burundi’s few remaining independent media outlets, received in January. The new president must free these journalists at once as a first step in ending the systematic persecution of the media, RSF said. May 20, 2020 Find out more Organisation RSF_en June 5, 2020 Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Credit: Iwacu BurundiAfrica Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsMedia independence ImprisonedFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention Iwacu’s journalists continue to be the frequent targets of threats and intimidation. During the presidential election campaign, a ruling party parliamentarian reacted to an article he did not like by threatening to “crush the heads” of Iwacu’s journalists. The president’s spokesman called them a “virus”. In addition to seeing four of its journalists arbitrarily jailed, Iwacu lost one of its most experienced reporters when Jean Bigirimana disappeared on 22 July 2016. According to several witnesses, he was last seen in the custody of intelligence officers. “This decision is both distressing and alarming, because it’s not based on any serious evidence and leaves journalists who want to cover major news stories under the threat of a long prison sentence,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “This is another dark day for Burundi’s press, which has already been undermined by years of persecution leading to the closure of many media and the flight into exile of around 100 journalists. We call on the president-elect to end this policy, and to begin by releasing these four journalists, who should not be in prison.”Burundi’s constitutional court yesterday declared the government-backed candidate, Évariste Ndayishimiye – a former interior minister and President Nkurunziza former chief of state – to be the winner of the 20 May presidential election. Burundi is ranked 160th out of 180 countries and territories in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Reportscenter_img to go further The leading challenge facing the president-elect will be to end the crisis caused by Nkurunziza’s decision to run for a third term in 2015, a crisis that triggered major unrest and a brutal crackdown that took a heavy toll on Burundi’s media and journalists. Receive email alerts Follow the news on Burundi News November 27, 2020 Find out more October 21, 2020 Find out more When reached by RSF, an Iwacu representative said he and his colleagues were “shattered” to learn that the four reporters – Christine Kamikazi, Agnès Ndirubusa, Térence Mpozenzi and Egide Harerimana – would have to remain in prison. In a decision issued in the absence of lawyers, the court in the northwestern city of Bubanza upheld the sentence of 30 months in prison and a fine of 1 million Burundian francs (482 euros) that was passed on the four journalists on 30 January on a charge of “attempted complicity in a violation of state security.” They were arrested on 22 October after trying to cover a surprise incursion into northwestern Burundi by a group of Burundian rebels based in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo who were opposed to President Pierre Nkurunziza’s government.It was nonetheless made clear during the original trial and the appeal hearing that the four reporters had absolutely no link with the rebel group. The charges were changed from “complicity” to “attempted complicity” during the original trial. Iwacu’s director announced today on Twitter that they would appeal to Burundi’s supreme court.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  A former Altadena crematory operator was sentenced today to 25 years to life in state prison after he admitted violating his lifelong probation, stemming from a conviction for conducting mass cremations and stealing gold from the teeth of corpses.David Wayne Sconce, 56, made headlines in the late 1980s when he pleaded guilty to the gruesome charges of commingling bodies and taking gold from the dead.Sconce was involved in the Lamb Funeral Home case in Pasadena in the late 1980s, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.It was during that time when Sconce was accused of mutilating corpses and mishandling cremations at his family’s funeral home, the Pasadena Star-News reported.Sconce was later charged with the murder of Timothy Raymond Waters, who ran the Alpha Society cremation service in Burbank.That case was dismissed when an expert hired by both prosecutors and the defense failed to turn up any trace of the oleander poison that another expert claimed to have found.Sconce was next charged with soliciting the murder of a former deputy district attorney assigned to his case. He pleaded guilty in exchange for probation and moved to Arizona, working as bus driver and maintenance man.At the time of his latest violation, Sconce was living in Montana. He appeared January in Missoula County Justice Court and agreed to waive extradition to California, where he was sought for persistent violations of his lifetime parole, the Missoulian reported.In Missoula County, Montana, Sconce was sentenced last year to five years’ probation on a federal charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm.Sconce was extradited to California, where he had been held in Men’s Central Jail without bail since Feb. 7.

first_imgThe Howell Family(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) —  The UNC Charlotte student who died after he tackled a gunman who opened fire on a classroom last week will be buried with military honors.Riley Howell, 21, was hailed a hero after he “took the assailant off his feet,” Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Kerr Putney said in a press conference Wednesday, adding that Howell’s actions saved lives.Howell, who was enrolled in ROTC courses at the university, will be buried with an honor guard detail, the folding and presenting of the American flag to his next of kin and a rendition of “Taps” after more than 25,000 people signed a petition on whitehouse.gov pushing for the special ceremony, ABC Asheville, North Carolina, station WLOS-TV reported.Howell’s public funeral was held at Stuart Auditorium at Lake Junaluska on Sunday. A rendition of “Amazing Grace” was played by a live band as his coffin was rolled into the auditorium and mourners filed into their seats.Howell’s younger sister, Iris Howell, described him as “everything I needed in a big brother.”“He taught me how to be tough,” she said.Amy Westmoreland, the mother of Howell’s longtime girlfriend, Lauren Westmoreland, described him as a “bright, beautiful, humble young man who played such a huge role in developing our daughter into who she is today.”“He was going to be the father of my grandkids one day,” Westmoreland said.The grieving mother said when she thinks of Howell, she thinks of his “huge appetite,” warm hugs and appreciation for the outdoors.“My heart is torn in two for my daughter, for his family, for my family,” she said. “…I love you, sweet boy.”Howell was one of two students killed in the shooting. Four others were wounded.“Riley was truly a one of a kind guy,” his family said in a statement after he was killed. “He loved all things outdoors, adventure, and especially family. He loved to work outside and when he worked, he did it with his hands and his heart. He always was able to put others before himself and never hesitated to help anyone who needed it. He was friends with anyone and everyone–a big, muscular guy with a huge heart.”“He was the kind of person who you knew would take care of you the moment you met him, and he always did,” his family said. He radiated love and always will. “Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Judge puts brakes on return to school for COVID-worried Minneapolis teachers

first_imgnarvikk/iStockBy: BILL HUTCHINSON, ABC News (MINNEAPOLIS) — A judge has granted public school teachers and staff in Minneapolis a temporary restraining order halting the school district’s plan to resume in-person classes this week.Hennepin County District Court Judge Susan Robiner ruled that the Minneapolis School District cannot force teachers and staff back to classrooms if they previously applied for or are in the process of seeking an accommodation to work remotely due to concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic.“The risk of contracting a serious illness which has killed almost a half-million people in the United States is axiomatically a profound harm,” Robiner wrote in her 11-page ruling.School district officials had planned to resume in-person classes on Monday.“For me, it was huge,” Lindsey West, a fifth-grade teacher at the Barton Open School, told ABC affiliate station KSTP-TV in Minneapolis.West said she is among those teachers who have applied for accommodation to work from home. She said she lives with her two children and her parents, who are both seniors.“The idea of exposing them to COVID and something terrible happening to them was the heartbreaking reality that I was dealing with this past week,” West said.The Minneapolis Federation of Teachers filed the request for an injunction against the school district last Thursday, saying in court papers that the district was making unilateral changes to contracts by refusing to grant accommodations for teachers to work remotely.Lawyers for the union argued that schools should remain closed until COVID-19 vaccinations are administered to teachers and staff and more safety measures are in place.“If somebody has a high-risk family member, they should have the option to fill out a form — and other districts have done this — to seek an accommodation. That doesn’t mean MPS has to grant it. But it does mean they have to go through this process,” Greta Callahan, president of the teachers union, told KSTP-TV.In her ruling issued on Saturday, Robiner noted that 40% of district parents said they would not send their children to in-person classes, while 48% said they would. The remaining parents said they were undecided, according to Robiner’s ruling.School district officials said in a statement that despite the ruling, they are moving forward with a new plan to resume in-person classes on Feb. 8, one day before another court hearing is scheduled to further discuss the temporary restraining order on accommodations filed by teachers and staff.“We have said all along that it is our responsibility to continue planning for in-person learning so that when the time is right, we are able to act. Returning a large district to in-person learning is a complex, multifaceted effort and we will continue with our plans until and unless we are directed to do otherwise,” the school district said in a statement.Other school districts across the country are grappling with similar situations, trying to weigh the concerns of teachers over the pandemic against the demands of parents wanting to send children back to the classroom.In Chicago, Mayor Lori Lightfoot has threatened to take action against teachers who fail to show up for the first day of in-class scheduled for Tuesday if they do not have an approved accommodation to work remotely. But the Chicago Teachers Union has called the district’s safety plan inadequate.White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said during a briefing on Monday that President Joe Biden is hopeful that the Chicago Teachers Union and the Chicago School District can work out a plan that is safe for both children and educators.“Let me first say the president has enormous respect for Mayor Lightfoot, and he has also been a strong ally to teachers through his entire career,” Psaki said. “They’re both prioritizing the right things, which is ensuring the health and safety of the kids and teachers and working to make sure that children in Chicago are getting the education they deserve. He is hopeful they can reach common ground as soon as possible.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
