Reporters Without Borders condemns the 10-month jail sentence that an Abu Dhabi court passed yesterday on the netizen Abdullah Al-Hadidi for tweeting details of the trial of 94 alleged government opponents from the courtoom “in bad faith.” Observers and foreign media are not being all owed to attend the trial of the 94 alleged dissidents, who are charged endangering the country’s security. Hadidi, who was able to attend the fourth hearing on 19 March as the son of one of the defendants, was arrested on 22 March and has been held ever since.In several tweets, Hadidi criticized the decision to bar foreign journalists from the courtroom. More than 15 international lawyers were also denied entry to the United Arab Emirates with the result that they were unable to assist with the defence.“The decision to convict Hadidi because of his tweets is indicative of the government’s desire to impose a news blackout on the trial of the 94 and its refusal to accept any form of public criticism of its policies. We call for Hadidi’s immediate release and for his conviction to be overturned.“The UAE policy of gagging critics who express their views or report information online is part of a growing regional tendency to convict netizens on charges of ‘disseminating false information.’ The Gulf regimes have found this to be an easy way to suppress information of a critical nature and intimidate those who refuse to relay the official discourse.” United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Read in Arabic (بالعربية) News RSF joins Middle East and North Africa coalition to combat digital surveillance United Arab EmiratesMiddle East – North Africa June 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on United Arab Emirates RSF_en Help by sharing this information News News to go further April 9, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ten months in jail for tweets, new threat to freedom of information December 23, 2020 Find out more April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF joins other NGOs in amicus brief in WhatsApp suit against NSO Group NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say Receive email alertslast_img read more

During the pendency of their appeal before the Allahabad High Court, Buddhu expired and thus the appeal and the proceedings in relation to him stood abated. When the appeal came up for final hearing, the High Court noticed that though the cause list contained name of lawyers for the appellant-accused, none of them appeared. Having noted thus, the bench proceeded to consider matter on merits and dismissed the appeal.Before the Apex court, the counsel for the accused submitted that the appeal was disposed of in absence of any representation on behalf of the appellant-accused. In this context, the bench comprising Justice Uday Umesh Lalit, Vineet Saran and S. Ravindra Bhat observed:”It is well accepted that right of being represented through a counsel is part of due process clause and is referable to the right guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution of India. In case the Advocate representing the cause of the accused, for one reason or the other was not available, it was open to the Court to appoint an Amicus Curiae to assist the Court but the cause in any case ought not to be allowed to go unrepresented.”Observing thus, the Court set-aside the judgment passed by the High Court and restored the Criminal Appeal to the file of the High Court to be disposed of afresh.Similar Judgments/ OrdersIn Shaik Mukthar vs. State of Andhra Pradesh, the Court had observed that when an accused is unrepresented before a Court, it has to either appoint an Amicus curiae or to refer the matter to the Legal Services Committee requesting it to appoint an advocateIn July, a three judge bench comprising in Sakunthala vs. State relied on the decision of the Supreme Court in K. S. Panduranga v. State of Karnataka (2013) 3 SCC 721, to observe that an appeal against an order of conviction cannot be dismissed in default but must be taken up and decided on merits even if the appellant in-person or the counsel representing him, is not present. Last year, the Supreme Court, in Shankar vs. State of Maharashtra, had observed that, the appeal filed by the accused against the conviction can be disposed of on merits only after hearing the appellant or his counsel. “Where the advocate for the appellant is absent on the date of hearing, the Court shall either appoint an amicus curiae and then decide the appeal. Once the appeal against the conviction is admitted, it is the duty of the Appellate Court either to appoint an advocate as amicus curiae or to nominate a counsel through Legal Services Authority and hear the matter on merits and then dispose of the appeal. When the appellant was not represented by the advocate, in our view, the High Court ought not to have decided the matter on merits and the impugned order is liable to be set aside and the matter is remitted back to the High Court.”, it was observed by the bench comprising of Justices R. Banumathi and AS Bopanna. Case: Subedar vs. State of Uttar Pradesh  [CRIMINAL APPEAL NO.886 OF 2020] Coram: Justice Uday Umesh Lalit, Vineet Saran and S.

first_imgFREDERIC J. BROWN/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is highlighting the plans in motion to tackle the city’s homelessness crisis, which he described as “perhaps the most complex and difficult civic challenge” in a generation.Last week, the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority announced that the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County jumped 12 percent over the past year to a total of 58,936.Youth homelessness rose 24 percent, in part due to improvements in counting the population, and the number of seniors 62 and over rose more than 8 percent, according to the release.In an open letter to residents Tuesday, Garcetti wrote that the problem needs to be treated like “the humanitarian emergency that it is.”“That starts with me,” he said.More than 100 projects are in the works to help alleviate the problem, Garcetti said, adding that the “first job” is to build housing because “Angelenos are becoming homeless faster than we can provide housing for them.”The homelessness budget has increased to more than $460 million for housing and services, 25 times what it was four years ago, and the city is ahead of its goal to build 100,000 new units of housing, according to the letter.“As your mayor, I take full responsibility for our response to this crisis,” Garcetti said. “And like everyone who has seen families in tents or spoken to a homeless veteran in need, I am both heartbroken and impatient.”Garcetti also called upon the private sector “to do more” amid the city’s growing economy.“If you’re a business owner with a parking lot that goes unused at night, I’ll ask you to open it up to people who live in their vehicles and need a place to park,” he wrote. “If you’re an executive for one of L.A.’s many successful startup companies, I’ll ask you to hire homeless Angelenos and contribute to our cause. I’ll ask more landlords to work with rehousing programs, so that families experiencing homelessness can make it out of shelters and into homes.”A December report from a local pest control company hired by the city shows that the homeless population living near the civic center were creating a “harborage for rodents” in the City Hall due to poor sanitary conditions that include leftover food, human waste and hypodermic needles, according to the Los Angeles Times. The company recommended that the city clear away the homeless people living nearby, the Times reported.Statewide data shows that California has 129,972 homeless residents, the second-largest in state history after the Great San Francisco Earthquake struck in 1906, which resulted in more than 200,000 people losing their homes overnight, according to the letter.California Gov. Gavis Newsom has proposed to increase the state’s housing and homelessness funding to $1 billion.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

first_imgThe UK housing market is to be revolutionised by a new ‘property number plate’ system for homes after it was announced today that the government is to open up its Unique Property Reference Numbers (UPRN) system.From July 1st the data will be available to any non-commercial users and homeowners via an Open Government license, The Lettings Industry Council has revealed.It has spent the past two years lobbying the government to make the move, arguing that a single number to identify every home in the UK would make it easier to enforce many of the regulations covering rented homes including EPCs, deposit schemes, selective licensing as well as electrical and gas safety certification.It is claimed that it will make the management of properties for many estate agents when incorporated into the major property software suppliers, who the TLIC has been talking to.The introduction of UPRNs will effectively create a property passport system for all properties in the UK in the same way that a car’s number plate is linked to MOT, road tax and insurance documents.It is also expected that the property ‘number plate’ will eventually across the housing sector as the key reference to a property other than its address.“This will give tenants the peace of mind that their property has passed all of its checks and the Local Authorities the transparency they need for improved enforcement,” says Theresa Wallace, Chair of TLIC and also head of Savills’ lettings customer service team.Her organisation says that the Energy Performance of Buildings (EPC) register is already using UPRNs and hopes that other information suppliers across the industry will follow suit. Theresa Wallace UPRN The Lettings Industry Council June 8, 2020Nigel Lewis4 commentsPossession Friend, Possession Friend Possession Friend 13th June 2020 at 11:12 amDid I read correctly, this was for ALL homes ( Not just the Private Rented Sector ) Private Landlords have been getting quite used to being singled – out for punitive measures, so this will come as a bit of a shock !What next, ?Will Govt. be proposing EICR’s for ALL rented accommodation and maybe even EPC’s applying to Social Housing – Shock – horror !!!Log in to ReplyChristian Woodhouse, Search Acumen Search Acumen 8th June 2020 at 2:42 pmOrdnance Survey have used UPRN’s for decades and HM Land Registry adopted them about 4-5 years ago in their National Polygon Service. UPRN’s are not new but the impact of making them royalty free and making them open, is immeasurable. There are many ways in which we can utilise the data and link hundreds of datasets together.It’s just a shame its taken so long for government to realise how important data standards are. Having a standard identifier for property is the start of some great things for the industry.Log in to ReplyDavid Price, Fawlty Flats Fawlty Flats 8th June 2020 at 10:53 amI thought that the land registry already had a unique number for all property, still there is always room for a new number in this increasingly bureaucratic world. The good point about this scheme is that it will do away with the need for local authorities to have a licencing scheme.Log in to ReplyNigel Lewis, Online Editor, The Negotiator Online Editor, The Negotiator 8th June 2020 at 11:04 amYes David, I believe Land Registry do – but until now only government departments were allowed to use it, whereas now it will have much wider applications in the public domain and help make property software more joined up.

first_img Experience Some Real, Authentic, Japanese Food At Crazy Sakeby Bryan Fox Wanna get a chance to experience some real, authentic, Japanese food but reside in SW Indiana? Look no further than Crazy Sake, located on Evansville’s east side.Crazy Sake provides customers with a variety of Japanese dishes and dining experiences. While most establishments offer the same kind of styles to its customers, Crazy Sake offers you 3 different ways you can enjoy your dine-out. One of these options include the Western tradition of dining at a sit-down table or booth. Crazy Sake, like most Japanese restaurants, gives its customers the chance to watch the chefs cook their meals in front of them on the grill as another dining option. However, what most Japanese restaurants don’t offer, at least not in this country, is the full fledged Japanese dining experience. While most of us have seen this in the movies, we probably have never gone to a restaurant where we can take off our shoes and sit on the floor ala traditional Japanese. Crazy Sake offers this. You actually wouldn’t sit on the floor as it’s raise off the ground but it gives you that same feel.Crazy Sake also has a private room reserved for birthday parties and other special occasions. In this room you once again are given the option of eating in the traditional Western sense or sitting on the floor to enjoy your meal.Crazy Sake offers a variety of dishes. This includes “All You Can Eat Appetizers and Sushi” as indicated on the front window pane. Other popular items on the list include: crispy calamari, crab angel, sake don, and seaweed salad. Menu items that are highly recommended are the BBQ Squid and Gyoza. The BBQ Squid gives you the same sense as eating wings except not as messy and the Gyoza is comparable to soft pork.Crazy Sake has been opened for a year. It’s located at 5720 Virginia St in Evansville. If you want a real Japanese dining experience, Crazy Sake is your place. It won’t disappoint.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Maximum for the MinimumDell EMC Cloud DR requires a minimal footprint in AWS, as well as minimal compute cycles, resulting in a disaster recovery solution with minimal cost. Dell EMC was also able to help SCI-Arc maintain a smaller cloud footprint. Initially, SCI-Arc stored 570 TB of uncompressed data, after it is run through Dell EMC’s patented deduplication technology on-prem, and in the cloud, they are backing up about 10 TB of data – a 57:1 deduplication ratio. They also went from retaining six months’ worth of backups to retaining two years’ worth of cloud backups with ease, all while having little to zero network impact. Cloud DR has enabled SCI-Arc to become more cost-effective by eliminating the need for a secondary backup server.Dell EMC was able to revolutionize backup in the cloud for SCI-Arc by eliminating a secondary DR, extending their cloud backup retention while reducing their overall cloud footprint. According to Peter Kekich, Network Systems Administrator at SCI-Arc, “Dell Technologies was our chosen provider because of their track record. Being able to recall all of these backups at a moment’s notice was crucial for us to be successful running our IT department at SCI-Arc.” In a creative environment such as SCI-Arc, Dell EMC data protection offers peace of mind and eliminates worries about whether student creativity and projects are getting backed up properly or if the data can be fully and promptly restored.Learn more about SCI-Arc in this case study. One of the most compelling use cases for cloud data protection is disaster recovery (DR). DR operations are critical for every business, from startup to enterprise and from research to banking to retail. An inadequate disaster recovery plan or infrastructure can lead to, well, disaster…at the most critical moment.While there are many effective DR architectures stemming from on-prem and co-located environments, the cloud offers a new dynamic in storage targets – one that can be safe, secure, economically viable and easily managed, with tools that an organization’s IT staff already knows.Dell EMC data protection solutions include Cloud Disaster Recovery (Cloud DR), cloud-enabled disaster recovery infrastructure, that bolsters your business continuity operations and makes the most of your cloud investment, whether it be a hybrid cloud, public cloud platform (Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure), or a multi-cloud environment. But the proof is in the pudding, as they say. Let’s look at an organization in Los Angeles which recently rolled out Dell EMC Cloud DR.Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) is a top-ranked, award-winning institution that is shaping the great architectural minds of tomorrow and serves as an incubator for some of the most innovative thinking in architecture. SCI-Arc offers both graduate and undergraduate degrees and is home to over 500 students as well as 80 faculty members, most of whom are practicing architects.SCI-Arc stores close to 600 TB of data, and one of the main challenges they are facing is the continuous growth of data, which is increasing 20 percent annually. Their prior back-up solution no longer met their needs as they missed their Service Level window. And with their data growth, this was only going to get worse. SCI-Arc’s primary export is the students’ revolutionary work, including animations and renderings that represent days of creativity and imagination by these students. This data must be kept safe and recoverable in any situation, because SCI-Arc needs a record of the files for accreditation and the students need their files for presentations, portfolios, and their careers. SCI-Arc chose to protect their data using Dell EMC Cloud DR hosted on AWS, ensuring that their data is kept safe and is recoverable at a moment’s notice.Dell EMC Cloud DR provides SCI-Arc the ability to protect on-premises workloads by securely and efficiently copying image backup onto AWS S3 for disaster recovery. In fact, Dell EMC is so efficient that they back up 90 percent of SCI-Arc’s VMs in one hour and have slashed their backup windows from 36 hours down to three. In the event of a disaster, their cloud DR strategy built on Dell EMC Cloud DR offers rapid recovery and three-click failover, two-click failback, and the workloads can be run directly in AWS or recovered to VMware Cloud on AWS.By deploying DR in this innovative manner, Dell EMC Cloud DR enables organizations to take advantage of the agility and cost effectiveness of cloud object storage. Resources in the cloud are spun up only when the primary data center isn’t available and decommissioned when they are no longer needed – a truly elastic environment. This is much more cost-effective than having hardware constantly up and running within the public cloud.center_img Session ID: 2021-02-25:57feedb17dd2c961dbbb897c Player Element ID: vjs_video_3 OK Close Modal DialogBeginning of dialog window.
