The change officially marks the work that the Home does for the lost and abandoned cats in its care.Duncan Green, Director General of Battersea Dogs & Cats Home said: “Many people are still unaware that the Home rescues, reunites and rehomes hundreds of cats every year, and has done since 1883. Our feline friends are such a big part of the Home so it’s only right that we make their status official”. The official logo will be changed over time, but the charity said that this wasn’t a decision that was made lightly. By 2001, Battersea’s cat intake reached 25% of their total animal intake but, in spite of the BBC TV series, many people still did not know that they had cats at the London site.

Ching Cheong could be tried at any time now that his case has gone to prosecutor’s office

first_img Organisation ChinaAsia – Pacific RSF_en —————————————–21.10.05Ching Cheong completes six months in detention on spying chargeReporters Without Borders voices outrage at the continuing detention of Hong Kong-based reporter Ching Cheong, who today completes his sixth month in solitary confinement on a trumped-up charge of spying for Taiwan which the Chinese authorities have been trying to bolster by means of smear campaigns against him and his family.The correspondent of the Singapore-based Straits Times, the 55-year-old Ching was arrested by the Chinese political police on 22 April while on his way to the southern city of Guangzhou. Several source have said he was seeking documents about former Communist Party of China leader Zhao Ziyang, who died in January.“The governments of Hong Kong and Singapore must put pressure on the authorities in Beijing to make them see reason in the Ching case, and everyone must continue to campaign on Ching’s behalf,” Reporters Without Borders, reiterating its call for his release.More than 15,000 people have already signed an international petition for his release that was launched by Reporters Without Borders and the Hong Kong Journalists Association.Ching is being held at a State Security premise in Beijing. The Chinese authorities have refused to allow anyone to visit him, including representatives of his newspaper. His wife, Mary Lau, was invited to Beijing but she was afraid of being arrested herself and did not go.The Chinese foreign ministry announced on 31 May that Ching had confessed to being a “spy in the pay of foreign agencies”. He was charged with spying for Taiwan on 5 August and faces a possible life sentence for “endangering national security.” On 17 August, the State Security turned down his wife’s request to hire a lawyer to defend him.Lau has rejected the charges against her husband, saying he always led a modest life-style with no sign of the money he allegedly received from Taiwan, and that he was always motivated by the desire to inform, not to hurt the People’s Republic of China.Reporters Without Borders is firm in its condemnation of the campaigns to smear Ching being relayed by pro-Beijing publications in Hong Kong. These have included naming a Shenzhen journalist as his accomplice and mistress. The journalist concerned immediately called a news conference in Hong Kong to deny the allegation. January 6, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ching Cheong could be tried at any time now that his case has gone to prosecutor’s office Reporters Without Borders today condemned of the transfer of detained Hong Kong-based journalist Ching Cheong’s case to the No. 2 people’s prosecutorial office in the capital, Beijing, where he is being held on charges of spying for Taiwan. “The investigation of the case has been concluded and, technically, his trial could take place today,” his wife, Mary Lau, told the Singapore-based Straits Times newspaper, for which Ching is the China correspondent.It seems that Ching is to be tried although the Chinese authorities have produced no evidence of his guilt. “We had hoped he would be freed without a trial because he is innocent,” said his wife, who has not been allowed to see him despite repeated requests. He has also not been allowed to see a lawyer during the eight months he has been held. He was arrested on 22 April.Ching is facing a heavy prison sentence. The Chinese authorities claim that he set up spying networks and held lots of military and economic information that is classified. In fact, Ching was arrested when trying to obtain the manuscripts of secret interviews with former pro-reform leader Zhao Ziyang. ———————————————————–9.12.2005Authorities extend pretrial detention for Ching Cheong for third timeReporters Without Borders today condemned a three-month extension to the pretrial detention of Hong Kong-based journalist Ching Cheong, who is being held by the state security department in Beijing on a spurious charge of spying for Taiwan. His newspaper, the Singapore-based Straits Times, said this was the third extension.“The complexity of the case invoked by the authorities to justify such a decision falls far short of concealing this violation of press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said.Agence France-Presse reported that the length of Ching’s detention was already extended in October and November. According to Chinese law, the findings of the Ching investigation should have been handed to the state prosecutor at the start of October. Aged 55, Ching was detained on 22 April and was formally placed under arrest on 5 August.

Conviction of Edgar Damalerio’s killer first success in the fight against impunity

first_img Help by sharing this information November 29, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Conviction of Edgar Damalerio’s killer first success in the fight against impunity News Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa to go further PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Follow the news on Philippines News Organisation RSF_en February 16, 2021 Find out more News PhilippinesAsia – Pacific Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped June 1, 2021 Find out more Ex policeman Guillermo Wapile was sentenced to life imprisonment on 29 November for the murder of journalist Edgar Damalerio (photo). Police and the courts failed to bring to justice either his accomplices or the instigators of the killing. Reporters Without Borders hailed the courage of his widow and the chief witness who, despite the risks, helped secure this victory over impunity. Former policeman Guillermo Wapile was sentenced to life imprisonment on 29 November 2005 for the murder in 2002 of newspaper editor and radio journalist Edgar Damalerio.Reporters Without Borders hailed the courage of both the journalist’s widow and of the chief witness to the murder that helped secure a conviction for his killer.“Three and a half years after the murder, the justice system has finally cleared a major hurdle in this case, marked by the murder of three witnesses and total impunity for those who instigated the killing,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.A regional court in the southern city of Cebu sentenced Wapile to life imprisonment (30 years) for the murder of Damalerio, editor of the Zamboanga Scribe and journalist on radio dxKP in Pagadian, in the southern island of Mindanao. The former policeman, who had several lawyers in his defence team, had pleaded not guilty.“Without the huge courage of chief witness Edgar Ongue and the journalist’s wife Gemma Damalerio and the tenacity of journalist Edgar Amoro – another witness who was himself murdered in February 2005 – this murder would have gone unpunished as have scores of others in the Philippines”, said Reporters Without Borders.“The heavy sentence against this criminal, for so long protected by his superiors, is a victory,” the organisation said, “But it should not overshadow the horrifying impunity that reigns in the country. It is a great shame that the investigation and the trial should have been limited to the murder itself with no attempt made to identify those who instigated the killing.”Gemma Damalerio told Reporters Without Borders, “Almost four years after my husband’s murder, we have finally obtained justice. It is a victory for all those in the Philippines and throughout the world who fought for Edgar Damalerio”. The journalist’s widow has been nominated for the Reporters Without Borders 2005 prize in the “press freedom defender” category.Delivering his 12-page verdict, the judge stressed the crucial importance of the evidence given by eye-witness Edgar Ongue. The court, presided by Ramon Codilla, rejected false evidence given by several of Wapile’s associates, including policemen who tried to bolster his defence.Since Damalerio’s murder in Pagadian on 13 May 2002, his family and witnesses lived in fear as they were targeted for successive murder attempts. On 2 February 2005, Edgar Amoro, a journalist and friend of Damalerio, was shot dead in the street in Pagadian. Another witness, Jury Ladica, had been murdered in August 2002.Police in Pagadian failed to even try to identify Wapile’s accomplices or to hunt for those who ordered him to carry out the killing. Asuri Hawani, a police officer who constantly protected his former junior officer, was recently appointed security adviser to the mayor of Pagadian. Moreover the investigation into the murder of Edgar Amoro has now stalled, despite promises to the contrary given to Reporters Without Borders by Justice Minister Raul M. Gonzalez.

Limerick employers receive Irish Heart Foundation awards

first_imgLimerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Irish Heart Foundation chief executive Tim Collins with Rose Leo, Martina Ryan and Elma Herbert from St John’s Hospital who were presented with the Gold Healthy Eating and the Gold [email protected] awards.Photo:Justin FarrellySEVEN Limerick-based companies and organisations have proved to be all heart.Dell Technologies, Mary Immaculate College, Croom Orthopaedic Hospital, Milford Care Centre, St Ita’s Community Hospital and University of Limerick Maternity Hospital all received the Happy Heart Healthy Eating Award from the Irish Heart Foundation for leading the way in prioritising their employees’ heart health.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Limerick award winners were among 98 companies from around the country that were represented at the annual Irish Heart Foundation Happy Heart Healthy Eating and [email protected] Awards in Dublin last week.Six of the Limerick entrants received the Happy Heart Healthy Eating Award, which assists staff restaurants in adopting healthier cooking practices and providing healthier food choices, ultimately making the healthier choice the easier choice for employees.The Irish Heart Foundation’s [email protected] Award, launched in 2013, was also presented to St John’s Hospital in recognition of their efforts to increase employees’ physical activity levels at work.Less than one-third of Irish adults meet the minimum recommended physical activity level of 30 minutes of moderate activity five times a week and Irish adults are spending on average 7.3 hours every day sitting down.Research shows that people who sit for prolonged periods are more than twice as likely to develop heart disease and stroke, even if individuals are regularly physically active, while one third of premature heart disease has been associated with poor diets alone. With one quarter of the food eaten by Irish adults prepared and cooked outside of the home, workplaces can play a key role in offering healthier food choices and providing an environment that supports their employees to move more throughout the day.A pioneer in the field of workplace health, the Irish Heart Foundation has been supporting healthy workplaces nationwide for over 20 years through its Healthy Eating Awards, which are supported by the HSE and Healthy Ireland.“As workplace wellbeing gathers momentum it is essential that employers embrace the concept by providing leadership and support for programme implementation including the Irish Heart Foundation’s workplace programme,” said Biddy O’Neill of Healthy Ireland at the awards function.

University of Limerick welcomes funding support package for higher and further…

first_imgUniversity you Limerick campus aerialsPhoto: True MediaUNIVERSITY of Limerick has today welcomed the announcement by Minister for Further and Higher Education, Research, Innovation and Science Simon Harris TD of a €168 million funding package for the Higher and Further Education Sector and a roadmap for the return to colleges in September.The package of supports will cover costs incurred by third-level institutions during the Covid-19 pandemic and offer guidance on students returning to campus through its Further and Higher Education Roadmap.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Welcoming the announcement, incoming Interim UL President Professor Kerstin Mey said: “Over the past five months our University has faced extraordinary challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Every aspect of our campus life was affected but as a community, we rose to the challenges.“Like all Irish universities, we are facing a funding deficit so it is very welcome news today that Minister Harris and his colleague Minister of State for Skills and Further Education Niall Collins TD have intensively engaged with the universities and established these measures of support.”UL has been at the forefront of the national response to the Coronavirus global pandemic with staff from UL’s School of Medicine, School of Allied Health, Department of Nursing and Department of Psychology joining the frontline to support the HSE.The University is currently hosting the Intermediate Care Facility at the UL Sport Arena and has secured close to €500,000 in funding for COVID-19 research projects.UL, in partnership with the HSE and Revenue, very quickly set up the UL Virtual Hub with over 50 senior health sciences students trained to engage in contact tracing which during the peak of the outbreak in Ireland were averaging around 100 calls a day.UL’s Bernal Institute, Department of Chemical Sciences and Department of Biological Sciences scientists prepared a validated lysis buffer for the HSE. The Bernal Institute is also providing technical expertise to University Hospital Limerick (UHL), while collaborating closely with HSE staff and colleagues in the pharma sector on the testing reagents critical supply chain.UL staff served on national COVID-19 advisory committees; developed and produced PPE solutions; provided daily graphic updates on national and international case numbers; compiled advice and support for autistic adults and children during the crisis; developed patient communications protocols for HSE; researched the sociological impacts for parents of the pandemic and a huge amount of research continues to support the national response to the global pandemic.At the same time, there remains the potential for significant loss of income for the University of Limerick arising from falls in international and graduate income.“Our summer income has been wiped out and the income from on-campus student residences next year has yet to be determined with substantial reliance still on online delivery. We must also invest further in technology including lecture capture, online resilience, online communications capability and the virtual learning and student support environments to enhance online delivery and this package will help us to do so,” said Professor Mey.UL looks forward to welcoming its students back to campus and the new academic year commences for all students on September 28. Teaching will be delivered via blended learning both online and face-to-face on campus. Each year cohort will have scheduled on campus face-to-face teaching as well as online and interactive facilitation of learning.UL has also committed to its international students that they are welcome to travel to the campus to commence their programmes of study in September and they will be facilitated and supported when self-isolating for 14 days. UL’s international cohort of students broaden the learning experience of all student, enrich campus life and bring an economic injection estimated in excess of €21 million to the region each year.

Traumatised

first_img Previous Article Next Article TraumatisedOn 21 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today Public figures have recently appeared more visibly crestfallen than everbefore, as this selection of before and after photos demonstrates.  Could they be stressed?The Hamiltons Before – Former MP and his wife who became accomplished publicityseekers after losing the Tatton seat to Martin Bell. After – Seeing Christine Hamilton overwrought with emotion is nothingnew for most of us (libel action against Mohammed Al Fayed, and the Who Wantsto be a Millionaire appearance), but allegations of sexual assault made againstthem by Nadine Milroy-Sloane sent their anxiety levels soaring. The couple werelater cleared, but Christine Hamilton claimed she was “terrified” andbecame so overwrought she had to see a police doctor. The incident didn’t,however, curtail her descriptive powers: the accusations, she said, were:”nonsense on stilts”, and if charges were brought “then I’m abanana”. Shohei Nozawa Before – Venerable president of Yamaichi Securities Co – one of Japan’stop-tier companies. After – In a country that has a vaunted work ethic, corporate failureis the ultimate badge of shame and the collapse of leading brokerage Yamaichiin 1997 was to have a harrowing effect on Nozawa. Asked at a news conferencehow he would explain the failure to his employees, he broke down and sobbed.Although it was a spectacle to be repeated several more times as Asia endured acrippling economic slump, Nozawa’s tearful apology remains an enduring image ofthose difficult times. Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf (AKA Comical Ali) Before – Iraq’s Information Minister and robust defender of SaddamHussein’s Baath Party. After – Displayed classic trauma-related symptoms of denial in fullglare of the world’s media as each wartime briefing became more implausiblethan the last.Al-Sahaf even went so far as “triple guaranteeing” hispeople there were no US soldiers in Bagdad on the day US tanks rolled into thecity. His refusal to accept reality made George Bush roar with laughter. Whenhe finally conceded and gave himself up, his self-image couldn’t have beenlower – except that is, when US troops released him soon afterwards. Cherie Blair Before – Barrister, charity worker, Prime Minister’s wife, mother offour and accomplished juggler. After – In an ironic twist, Peter Foster, the fraudster boyfriend ofCherie Blair’s lifestyle guru and (principle stress reliever) Carole Caplin,plunged her into a hail of controversy after revealing how he helped her buytwo flats in Bristol. Initially, she attempted to conceal her involvement withthe fraudster but later accepted blame and used an awards ceremony to tearfullydefend her actions. She said she had tried to adapt to the pressures of herpublic role and juggle a lot of balls but “sometimes some of the balls getdropped”. Tony Blair Before – Principle transformer of the Labour party and New LabourPrime Minster who swept to power with landslide victory in 1997, then wonhistoric second term. After – When the news broke of the death of weapons expert Dr Kelly,Blair’s ashen pallor and gaunt features told its own story. His apparentphysical distress was further compounded when a Daily Mail journalist asked ifhe had blood on his hands. Although his future lay in doubt, the remarkablyresilient PM has since acquitted himself well at the Hutton inquiry, but hisstock has fallen considerably since he swept to power and could still pay theultimate political price for going to war with Iraq. Glenn Roeder Before – Agreed a three-year contract to manage West Ham last yearand steers the club to a respectable seventh place in the Premiership. After – Football is notorious for its swift termination of poorperforming managers and his team’s relegation battle in the Premiership lastseason (2002-03) made Roeder an ideal candidate for a stress-related illness.So when he collapsed after a game in April, there was no doubt in anyone’s mindthat that it was due to a minor stroke caused by stress. It was actually abrain tumour and fully recovered and back on the touchline, Roeder was keen topoint out that he hadn’t been stressed. His protestations were academic – threematches into the new season, he was sacked. Andy Gilchrist Before – Andy Gilchrist became general secretary of the Fire BrigadesUnion in June 2000 and experienced 15 months of fame last year when he demandedfirefighters receive a 40 per cent wage increase. After – Gilchrist refused to budge at a time when most settlementsran at 3 per cent, and war threatened over Iraq. He faced an increasingly vitriolicpublic as aged Green Goddesses were hauled from retirement to replace strikingfiremen and their idle vehicles. As he ratcheted up the arguments withGovernment, he turned public opinion against one of Britain’s most admiredworkforces. His demeanour turned sour, and he exuded classic stress symptoms –including visible signs of ageing. Finally accepted deal far short of originaldemands. Estelle Morris Before – Three rewarding years as minister for school standardsbefore promotion to secretary of state for education After – By her admission, education secretary was a job too far, butit was her integrity and personal standards of achievement that weighed heavilyand drove Morris to resign. Politicians of lesser ability have ridden biggerstorms, fuelled by ego, ambition, arrogance and a willingness to pass the buck,but for Morris, the feeling she had failed and let people down offered no roadback. Her impressively frank interview with the BBC, where she disclosed shehadn’t enjoyed the job as much as minister for school standards, no doubt mademany stress-worn chief executives wonder why they go on. Rod Eddington Before – The Australian businessman joined British Airways as chiefexecutive in May 2000. He already had a reputation as a tough operator and acame with a brief to continue the cost cutting of his predecessor Bob Ayling. After – A catalogue of disasters since September 11, with uncertaintyover the Iraq war, the SARS epidemic and then wildcat strikes over swipe cardsall had a catastrophic effect, costing the airline millions. The media and thepublic had Eddington on the ropes and questioned his capability. The chaos atHeathrow exposed poor staff morale and the fragility of BA’s businessprocesses. The airline and Eddington are still licking their wounds. Matthew KellyBefore – Presenter of entertainment show, Stars in Their Eyes,well-known for his bonhomie. After – Arrested and questioned about alleged child sex abuse, themarried father-of-two found himself centre stage of a media feeding frenzy. Helost his job, his weight plum-meted and said his life had changed irrevocably.He dealt with the stress by throwing him-self into work. He was cleared and hassince won back his job.
