Detained TV journalist’s ordeal continues

first_img News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Help by sharing this information to go further AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Reporters Without Borders is shocked by the inhuman and degrading treatment of Khayal TV editor-in-chief Zaur Guliyev by members of the interior ministry’s organized crime division in Baku since 14 March, the day after his arrest in the northern town of Quba in connection with a YouTube video that set off rioting there.“This physical and psychological harassment of Guliyev must stop at once,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We demand acceptable conditions of detention for this journalist and we call on the judicial authorities to respond quickly to the complaint he has made.” Guliyev, who was charged on 22 March with violating public and “abuse of power,” has said that he was tortured repeatedly at the organized crime division in Baku. According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, he was interrogated repeatedly for hours at a time with his hands tied behind his back and while being subjected to considerable psychological pressure to admit his involvement in the video that triggered the Quba riots and the dismissal of the head of the Quba government, Rauf Habibov, on 1 March.The interrogations sessions were conducted by Vilayat Eyvazov, deputy to the Interior Minister, and Mirgafar Seyidov, chief of the organized crime division. They made it clear to him that he would be convicted regardless of whether he confessed.He has been moved to a different cell several times and each time the conditions have worsened. The cells have been small, unheated and unhygienic and he has had to share them with dangerous common criminals serving long sentences. He has also been humiliated repeatedly by his jailers, who have made him walk along corridors naked.Although he has a stomach ulcer, he has been denied medical care and had no access to any medicine at all until his transfer to Baku prison on 14 April, after being held at the organized crime division for a month. His condition is very worrying because, despite his repeated requests, no one has given him the treatment he needs, the ulcer has worsened and he now has chronic gastric blood reflux.Although Azerbaijan is trying to improve its image in the run-up to the Eurovision song contest in Baku at the end of May, journalists’ rights continue to be flouted. It is ranked 162nd out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Here’s to a sock-soppin’ New Year

first_img Here’s to a sock-soppin’ New Year Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits No matter how many times I washed the greens they still were gritty. I was about to give up and forget about all the good luck the turnip greens would bring to my house in the coming year.But, then, I remembered that a friend washed her turnips in the washing machine.I gathered up the huge mess of greens and stuffed them in the washing machine. I listened happily as the sand was being washed away.I put fresh pork in the pot to boil and be ready when the turnips were washed squeaky clean.When the washing machine quieted, I reach in and gathered the greens that were as clean as a whistle in a dishpan and dumped them in the pot for cooking.Oh, how good they smelled. It was going to be an especially good traditional New Year’s Day dinner.When it was time to take up the greens, they looked a little darker than usual, perhaps, a little more blue than green. Strange?As I dipped the turnip greens from the pot to the waiting bowl, they seemed a little heavy … and a bit soggy… and strange.To my shock, hanging from the spoon, was a sock, a son’s faded blue cotton Sunday sock!The sock had been left unnoticed in the washing machine, gathered for the cook pot and cooked to fading with the turnip greens.Five gallons of greens, ruined! But, then, maybe no one would notice. Surely, the blue dye was not poisonous… But what if … and I poisoned my children, my family?Reluctantly, I gathered the treasured turnip greens and reluctantly walked out to the fence row and dumped my precious cargo. It was going to be a sock-soaked New Year dinner. The blacked-eyed peas and hog meat would have to bring good luck our way, if any luck came at all.The raccoons that devoured the turnip greens were in for a really good year.

But, standing there, thinking about all the work involved in putting fresh greens on the table, I retreated and sheepishly grabbed at bag of fresh-chopped collards. I had been on the way to the meat counter for hog jowl when I was caught cheating on collard greens.

Turnips came up as thick as hops. When we went to gather the turnips, Daddy cautioned us not to step on the turnips.Pharaoh’s Army could have stomped through that turnip patch and there still would have been enough turnip greens to feed all them and us, too.Daddy had planted the turnips in sandy soil and the greens had more sand on them that on the beach at Panny-maw City.

Green Teams to Discuss Recycling Trends Feb. 27 at ACUA

first_imgA program, “The Problem with Plastics: Changes in the Recycling Industry,” will be held Wednesday, Feb. 27, at the ACUA. The Sustainable Jersey Atlantic-Cape May Hub will offer Green Team members, municipal officials, community leaders and interested residents an opportunity to learn about the current state of recycling at a free event.The program, “The Problem with Plastics: Changes in the Recycling Industry,” will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Atlantic County Utilities Authority’s  (ACUA) Recycling Center at 6700 Delilah Road in Egg Harbor Township.Recent changes in global markets for recycled materials have presented challenges to recycling processors across the nation, according to a press release.At this event, industry professionals will share information on what is happening, why, and how changes may impact local recycling programs.“We have had to modify our guidelines on what is accepted for recycling in Atlantic County, but recycling still remains one of the best and easiest ways people can help the environment,” ACUA president Rick Dovey explains.ACUA has removed some items from its “accepted” list, but stresses the importance of continued education and participation to ensure the many benefits of recycling are realized.The changing global markets have also impacted the Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority (CMCMUA), and a spokesperson from CMCMUA will also be sharing their perspective at this Regional Hub meeting.In New Jersey, where the nation’s first mandatory recycling law was enacted in 1987, separating bottles, cans and paper has become a habit for many.Recycling continues to change with the times, as supply and demand for different materials fluctuates and new technologies for sorting and processing develop.In many communities, “single stream” recycling has replaced the need to separate bottles and cans from paper and cardboard in the older “dual stream” model.“It would be great to be able to recycle everything, but that’s not our current reality. It’s really important to understand what residents and businesses can do to help local programs succeed,” noted Co-Chair of the Atlantic-Cape May Hub Ralph Cooper.The Hub event will bring recycling professionals to provide a national and state level perspective, as well as information about our local recycling programs in Cape May and Atlantic County, highlighting both the differences and broader similarities between the two neighboring counties.“Many people are happy to put out their recycling and not to have to think any more about it, but we need to understand what is happening; changes in the industry directly affect not only your community at large, but personal practices within your home as well,” Hub Co-Chair Amy Menzel explains.Menzel continued, “The event will help people to understand the whole process, as well as the benefits, both environmental and financial, that our local recycling programs provide to municipalities.”There is no cost to attend, but registration is requested. Registration can be done online at bit.ly/ACMHubPlastics1Space is limited for special “behind the scenes” tours of the ACUA’s Recycling Center’s processing floor which will be given before the event begins.Participants have an opportunity to sign up for these tours during registration.Follow the 2-County Green Team’s A CM Regional Hub on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/AtlanticCapeMayHub/Links on plastic recycling guidelines for the utilities in the 2-counties:Atlantic Co. http://www.acua.com/recycling101/Cape May Co. https://www.cmcmua.com/last_img read more
