  • Government silence condemned as press suffer a “black November” of assaults and threats from local officials

    first_imgNews November 21, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government silence condemned as press suffer a “black November” of assaults and threats from local officials PeruAmericas Latin America’s community radio – a key service but vulnerable Reporters Without Borders today expressed its deep concern at threats and attacks by elected officials against journalists in several parts of the country throughout November, including a murder attempt, and slammed government silence on the issue.The mayor of Huari in the west, his armed henchmen and several municipal officials came close to killing journalist José Ramírez Villacorta in an ambush on 11 November. Two days later, the mayor of Otuzco in northwestern Peru, brutally ejected a journalist from a public session of the municipal council. Journalists working for radio FM 98 in Huánuco, central Peru, and La Karibeña in La Joya in the south have been harassed and intimidated.“Local corruption and an upsurge in drug-trafficking make the work of the local press extremely difficult,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Provincial journalists have suffered a ‘black November’ and we unreservedly condemn reprisals and intimidation against them by elected officials who seem to think that their office gives them impunity”“Judicial leniency, from which two elected officials benefited recently, both of whom were suspected of ordering the murder of a journalist in 2004, also sends a very bad signal. We note with regret that the government, and in particular the interior ministry, remain deaf to our repeated appeals for genuine respect for press freedom, which is recognised by the Constitution.”José Ramírez Villacorta, journalist on the daily La Primera, was ambushed at dawn on 11 November while in his car with his driver and two friends in the Huari area after being followed by three trucks, one belonging to the local council, with the mayor of Huair, Edwards Delfio Vizcarra Zorrilla, and several officials on board.The mayor, his two bodyguards and municipal councillors, Hubert Solís and Miguel Navas, and three police officers forced him out of his car. Ramírez Villacorta managed to escape and as he ran off heard the mayor giving orders for him to be killed.The journalist had for several months been investigating the mayor’s implication in corruption and the mayor also suspected him of being the author of graffiti accusing the president of the Ancash region of corruption.“He came after me shooting in the air but I managed to escape, but they stole my camera and a tape-recorder” he told Reporters Without Borders. Police arrested the mayor’s companions and seized a firearm. Ramírez Villacorta made a complaint to the Huari prosecutor against 25 people, including Edwards Delfio Vizcarra Zorrilla, for putting his life in danger. The mayor of Otuzco, Diómedes Venero Ortecho, brutally manhandled and ejected journalist Sandra Landero, of Radio Chami, from a public session of the municipal council on 13 November, even though she had been authorised to attend. Her radio station had launched a “citizen vigilance” campaign against corruption and had condemned fraud in which the mayor was implicated.Editor of Radio Chami Oscar Fajardo, told Reporters Without Borders that the mayor of Otuzco was trying to curb freedom of information and was harassing journalists. He had had photos taken of several journalists and mounted a campaign of denigration against them in municipal newsletters. “He is a very aggressive man who does not like to be watched by the media. I even fear that a journalist could be killed, the situation is tense and difficult,” said Oscar Fajardo, adding that he would hold the mayor responsible for any further attack on a Radio Chami reporter.The following day, Jhon Rupay Machaguay, of radio FM 98 in Huánuco, was beaten and threatened by Gustavo Sotomayor Quipusco, municipal councillor in the Mariano Dámaso Beraún region, who tried to take documents from the journalist that compromised the mayor, Freddy Fernández. An associate of the mayor of La Joya made a telephone threat on 6 November against the manager of radio La Karibeña, David Luque Ylaquita, who with his colleagues, Miguel Carazas and Walter Payé, tried to get information on the municipality’s spending. At the same moment stones were thrown at the radio station building.

  • New York HPD Tracks Over 3K ‘Zombie Homes’

    first_imgHome / Daily Dose / New York HPD Tracks Over 3K ‘Zombie Homes’ November 29, 2019 2,602 Views Related Articles in Daily Dose, Featured, Foreclosure, News Foreclosure HPD New York Properties zombie homes 2019-11-29 Seth Welborn  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago A special team created by the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (NYC HPD) has identified over 3,000 zombie homes in the Big Apple. These are mostly based in areas that are still recovering from the economic distress caused during the Great Recession.According to Leila Bozorg, Deputy Commissioner of HPD, a major part of this team’s work involves collecting data on such homes and the extent of the challenge of rehabilitating these properties. She told Fox News that new laws allow them to hold financial lenders more accountable once a home falls into foreclosure.NYC has also partnered with organizations like the Center for NYC Neighborhoods to help homeowners who have fallen behind on their mortgage payments to find funds and help prevent the creation of more zombie homes.“We send people out to survey homes to try to document where are zombie homes in New York City and what’s the extent of the challenge,” Bozorg told Fox News.New York neighborhoods such as Central Brooklyn, Southeast Queens, northern Staten Island, and parts of the Bronx, particularly, have a higher number of distressed and abandoned properties compared to the rest of the city, according to HPD data.According to a report by Curbed, the city saw around 18,000 foreclosure filings in 2007, when the foreclosure crisis first hit New York. Today, there are at least 2,000 abandoned and deteriorated homes many of which are in the process of foreclosure.“When so many families are struggling to find an affordable place to live, we can’t afford to allow these vacant, blighted homes that pose threats to our communities,” Matthew Creegan, a spokesperson for HPD, told Curbed. “The city’s zombie homes unit has been working to identify where these properties are and take necessary action to get them back on track.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: Gen Z’s Thoughts on Renting vs. Buying Next: FHFA Increases Conforming Home Loan Limits Share Save New York HPD Tracks Over 3K ‘Zombie Homes’ The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agocenter_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

  • Which MA is better for me?

    first_imgI have completed a BA in HR and a minor in Business Law, and I’m consideringstudying for an MA. One university has a good reputation and attractivecontent, but does not have a placement programme and is not recognised by theCIPD. The other offers a summer placement and graduate membership to CIPD.Which one should I choose? Victoria Wall, managing director, Victoria Wall Associates As you have not mentioned your motives for wanting to study an MA, or whatyour future career aspirations are, it is hard to be specific. Assuming thatyou wish to pursue a career in HR, I recommend choosing the university offeringthe summer placement and graduate membership to the CIPD. Prospective employers do pay attention to placements, but in the presenteconomic climate, it may not be easy to organise them yourself. Therefore, auniversity that has industry links and assists with arranging the placement isa huge help. Having HR placements on your CV will definitely enhance the jobopportunities you will be considered for. In addition, graduate membership tothe CIPD will give your CV even more credibility. Peter Sell, joint managing director, DMS Consultancy If you are looking to pursue a career in HR, the university that is CIPDrecognised is the best choice. However, I have seen quite a few HRprofessionals take a masters at a university not approved by the CIPD, and thengo on to take the full CIPD qualification afterwards. You don’t mention anything about the reputation of the second university,but if it is CIPD approved it will have been through a rigorous qualityassurance process. The summer placement is a very good idea. Employers are looking for bothacademic qualifications and experience. By working in a HR department, you will also get a better idea of whetherthis really is the career for you. Clare Judd, consultant, Macmillan Davies Hodes From your question, it would appear that you are in the early stages of yourHR career. Bearing that in mind, I would highly recommend the CIPD certifiedcourse with the placement programme. The CIPD will have reviewed the course content and certified that it meetstheir Professional Standards. The resulting CIPD qualification will then assistyou in securing your first HR role. In addition, the placement will give youpractical HR experience and valuable insight into how an HR team functionswithin a business.

  • A potential feedback approach to ecosystem-based management: model predictive control of the Antarctic krill fishery

    first_imgCCAMLR aims to develop a feedback approach to aid ecosystem-based management (EBM) of Antarctic krill fisheries. It is important to assess whether a feedback approach is likely to achieve the multiple objectives that EBM implies in the complex and uncertain conditions typical of Antarctic marine ecosystems. This study used Model Predictive Control (MPC) to achieve objectives for a harvested species, its predators and the fishery, in a simulation model that incorporates uncertainty and spatial and trophic complexity. The approach adjusted spatially resolved annual catch limits in response to estimates of the state of the system. It suggests that feedback management is both feasible and a more effective way to achieve multiple objectives than fixed catch limits, which are currently used to manage Antarctic krill fisheries. The study demonstrates that optimisationbased approaches such as MPC are computationally capable of dealing with EBM-type problems. They are also useful for assessing the feasibility of candidate management policies or objectives, and characterising the trade-offs that they imply. This study characterises the trade-off between catch levels and the risk of harvested species biomass falling to unacceptable levels.last_img read more
