first_imgNews December 13, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 News blackout after police brutally put down demonstrations in Dongzhou Local sources said that a security perimeter of around 10 kms had been thrown around the village immediately afterwards and checkpoints set up on all roads leading to the village, effectively sealing it off.”The authorities have completely distorted news about these events. It is a striking demonstration of China’s capacity to censure both the traditional media and the Internet, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.”We know from experience that when the government decides to deny media access to something, it is often to conceal abuses”, it said.The rare uncensored reports reaching foreign countries were obtained by telephoning directly to residents in the village. Local media received an order to only relay reports put out by the official Chinese news agency Xinhua, particularly in relation to the number of people killed during the police crackdown: three according to official sources, more than 20, villagers have told the international press.Chinese discussion forums were ordered to censor all messages posted about the events. When Reporters Without Borders tried posting the message (in Chinese) “People died in Dongzhou” it was automatically rejected by the main forums, including Xinhua (http://forum.xinhuanet.com/) and Sohu (http://news.sohu.com/comment.shtml).Some Internet-users try to get round the censorship by posting messages in which they simply allude to repression against villagers in Dongzhou. One of the messages, seen by Reporters Without Borders, condemned Japanese massacres in Nanking in 1937, making implicit references to the current political context, saying that it was unacceptable to “fire on compatriots”. In another forum, a message read, “We cannot mention the place, the date or who was responsible. But we know”.

first_imgNew lanyards donated by the Ocean City Education Foundation will help keep protective masks secure for the Primary School students and teachers. (Photo courtesy of JASM Consulting) The Ocean City Education Foundation (OCEF) purchased and donated more than 300 PPE lanyards for students and teachers this week at the Ocean City Primary School.The lanyards, which are red with white lettering to match Ocean City’s school colors, break away for safety purposes and have “I OCPS” written on them.“Once the OCEF board heard of the need, we reached out to the school to see how we could help,” said OCEF President Jennifer Shirk. “In this unprecedented time, we are happy to make things a little easier for the students and teachers in any way we can.”The Primary School felt the lanyards would be beneficial for the students to help keep protective masks secure during their school day with less likelihood of them falling on the ground or getting lost. Lanyards essentially are cords or straps worn around the neck.About OCEFThe Ocean City Education Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) community service organization. This school year, OCEF will focus on funding additional outdoor Wellness Centers in all three schools in the Ocean City district and is always looking for support monetarily or through volunteering.To get involved with OCEF or for more information, visit OCNJEF.com.last_img read more

first_imgThere are several ways U.S. lawmakers could avert chaos if the Supreme Court were to invalidate Obamacare subsidies for millions of citizens, but it’s unlikely they would act on any of them, panelists at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health said Wednesday.“It would require a degree of political ability in this country not seen in recent years,” said Robert Blendon, the Richard L. Menschel Professor of Public Health, professor of health policy and political analysis, and senior associate dean and director of the Division of Policy Translation and Leadership Development.Blendon was among the participants in “America’s Healthcare Future: Implications of the Upcoming Supreme Court Decision about the ACA,” which also featured Katherine Baicker, the C. Boyden Gray Professor of Health Economics and acting chair of the Department of Health Policy and Management; John McDonough, professor of the practice of public health; and Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the American Action Forum and former director of the Congressional Budget Office. The event, co-sponsored by the Harvard Chan School and Reuters, was moderated by Sharon Begley, Reuters’ senior correspondent for U.S. health and science.The case before the court, King v. Burwell, doesn’t seek to invalidate the whole Affordable Care Act. Instead, it centers on a key provision that is intended to make health insurance affordable by partly offsetting the mandate that requires people to buy health insurance.The government subsidy, given as a tax credit, defrays the cost of insurance for low- and middle-income people who earn too much to qualify for insurance through Medicaid.The court case involves two different types of insurance exchanges, set up under the ACA. Less than half of the states have created their own exchanges. In the rest, the federal government has stepped in to set up the exchange.The plaintiffs in the case argue that four words in the law — “established by the state” — mean that only those getting insurance through state-established exchanges are eligible for the subsidies. Currently the subsidies are given to people who get insurance through state or federal exchanges.If the court agrees, that would mean that 6.4 million people living in the 34 states where federally established exchanges operate would not be eligible for subsidies to help defray insurance costs. A ruling is expected this month.Panelists said the potential ramifications extend far beyond individual pocketbooks. Many of those losing their subsidies would become exempt from the law’s mandate because insurance would be unaffordable, and some of that number would opt not to get health insurance, increasing the ranks of the uninsured.With millions weighing their options, it’s likely that more of those who are sick would decide to pay the extra cost for insurance, Baicker said. This would raise the proportion of sick people in the risk pool, which would force up premiums. That, in turn, could make insurance unaffordable for a whole new group of people, increasing the numbers who become uninsured and skewing insurance risk-pools even further.“The absence of subsidies very much affects risk pooling,” Baicker said.Though some states are poised to create their own exchanges if the Supreme Court rules for the plaintiffs, it’s unlikely that the solution lies at the state level, the panelists said. First of all, due to political opposition, probably only a few states would establish their own exchanges. Also, the law includes a deadline, already passed, for a state to create an exchange that qualifies for subsidies.“I don’t see a uniform state response at all,” McDonough said.In Washington, Republicans in control of the House and Senate are resolutely opposed to the current law, and the president holds veto power over any GOP proposal to significantly weaken it. Making matters worse, Blendon said, is the run-up to next year’s presidential primaries. The candidates will have to appeal to their bases, which tend to be more ideologically extreme — on both sides — than the general electorate.The most straightforward fix — altering the law’s language to ensure that all exchanges, whether federal or state, are eligible for subsidies — is unlikely to get much support in Congress, where, in the event of a ruling for the plaintiffs, Republicans would finally have leverage to attempt meaningful changes to the law, McDonough said.Probably the best response, Blendon said, would be for Congress and the president to get together and agree to extend the law’s provisions through the 2016 election, allowing the vote to be at least a partial referendum on the ACA and paving the way for the next president to work with lawmakers on a more permanent fix.A reality of the system is that the administration has wide discretion on the vigor of its enforcement, Holtz-Eakin said. In the event of an unfavorable court decision and a political impasse, the administration could ease up on its actions significantly, essentially giving people a break without officially blessing noncompliance until the government sorts it out.Regardless of the court’s decision and the ultimate resolution on exchanges and subsidies, the rest of the law will survive, the panelists pointed out. McDonough said the potentially affected parts of the law lie in just one of its 10 main sections. The expansion of federal Medicaid for the poorest citizens, coverage for pre-existing conditions, provisions allowing children to remain on their parents’ insurance until age 27, and reforms to streamline the health care industry would remain in effect.Still, McDonough said, the everyday impact of the ACA is real and substantial. An amicus curiae brief he signed supporting the law’s current interpretation says that 8 million people losing health insurance means 9,800 additional deaths annually.“There are very much human lives at stake here in this decision,” he said.last_img read more

first_img Will the Giants trade Madison Bumgarner? ‘It’s impossible to say’ The Rays appear to be exploring their options before the trade deadline.Tampa Bay has “checked in” on Tigers slugger Nicholas Castellanos and spoken with the Giants about dealing for a reliever, according to reports from MLB Insider Jon Heyman and MLB Network. In addition to Cubs, Rays have checked in on Nick Castellanos. Not a perfect fit, tho, and no evidence it’s close yet with them. @cmccosky 1st mentioned Cubs.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) July 23, 2019Castellanos, 27, is slashing .284/.342/.480 with 11 home runs and 36 RBIs in 93 games for Detroit this season. He will be a free agent after the season and has also been linked to the Cubs.Castellanos said last month he was not expecting to be with the Tigers long-term. Related News Is Cubs trade target Nicholas Castellanos trying to up his value by ripping Tigers’ ballpark? “I don’t have a college education,” Castellanos said at the time, via The Athletic. “But I can pick up the pieces and put a puzzle together. I’m not saying that this is 100% what it’s going to be, but if I’m a gambling man, I don’t see (the Tigers) offering me an extension at this point in time.”The Giants, meanwhile, were expected to be sellers but have won nine and of their last 10. They’re just two games out of the second National League wild-card spot.Source: #Rays, #SFGiants have been in contact regarding Giants relievers.

We just try and be in position to make moves that can have a chance to help us. “Our position in the standings is different than what it was last year and two years ago and so on, but I think we’ll look to be opportunistic. If things line up, there’s no limit. But if we don’t make any (trades), we’re OK with that, too.

first_imgTHE PARTNER of Malin Head man William McKeeney has told the trial of two men accused of killing him how she saw the fatal attack from the window of their Glasgow flat, but didn’t realise at first what was going on.Anne Marie Newlands, 48, had been waiting for William to return home when she became concerned about the behaviour of young Asian men.She told the High Court in Kilmarnock: “I was looking out for Willie, but the second time I looked out I thought they were breaking a piece of furniture. “They were kicking and stamping on something and they were both doing it.“I decided I would phone Willie and tell him to watch out because there were two boys and I didn’t like the look of them.”Asif Rehman, 20, and Adel Ishaq, 19, both deny the racially aggravated murder of Mr McKeeney, 57, in Pollokshields, Glasgow, in January.The Malin Head man had been living in Scotland, having moved there to get work.Ms Newlands the pair “sauntered around the corner” after the incident.She managed to stand on a trunk to get a better view out of the window and then realised the two men had been kicking a person.“I ran outside and saw it was Willie. He was very battered, and one side of his face was all swollen and his eye was closed. I thought his teeth had come through his top lip,” she said.Labourer William, who was Ms Newlands partner of 12 years, had visited two pubs before phoning her to say he was on his way home.Ms Newlands told the court: “I was panicking because no one else was there. 

I tried to speak to him, but realised he was not responding so I phoned 999.The recorded emergency call was played to the court.The controller could be heard talking Ms Newlands through mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, telling her:  “You’re doing really well. Stay strong for him.”William died later in hospital.Rehman and Ishaq deny the racially
