RSF condemns this politically-motivated sentence, which violates the Russian constitution’s guarantee of freedom of expression in a Crimea purged of its last critical journalists. Semena’s lawyer said he would appeal.Читать по-русски в PDF и ниже / Read in Russian28.02.17: Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls for the immediate withdrawal of charges against Nikolai Semena, a reporter for Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty’s Crimean service, who is due to go on trial today in Crimea’s regional capital, Simferopol.Semena is facing a possible five-year jail sentence on a charge of “publicly calling for the Russian Federation’s territorial integrity to be violated.” A preliminary hearing was held behind closed doors on 17 February.He is being prosecuted over a September 2015 report criticizing Crimea’s annexation by Russia and supporting the blockade of the peninsula being organized at that time by Ukrainian activists.Semena was searched and briefly detained by Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB) in April 2016 and has been banned from leaving the region since then, which prevented him from travelling to Kiev for a heart operation.His name has been on a Russian federal agency “list of terrorists and extremists” since July 2016 although he had not been brought to trial until now.“After eliminating pluralism in Crimea, the Russian authorities are now targeting its last survivors,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “Nikolai Semena is being tried for using his right to free speech. We call on the authorities to abandon this prosecution at once and to let him work freely. The international community must not forget Crimea and allow its population to disappear into this new information black hole.”Crimea’s annexation by Russia in March 2014 was accompanied by a radical purge of the media. The leading media outlets and journalists opposed to annexation were either reduced to silence or found a refuge in Kiev. Russia is ranked 148th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.КРЫМ: РБГ требует отмены обвинений против Николая Семены”Репортеры без границ” (РБГ) призывают к немедленному прекращению преследований в отношении журналиста Николая Семены, чей судебный процесс начался 28 февраля 2017 года в Крыму.Суд столицы Крыма Симферополя 28 февраля 2017 года приступил к слушаниям в отношении местного корреспондента крымской службы “Радио Свободная Европа/Радио Свобода” (RFE/RL) журналиста Николая Семены.Он обвиняется в “публичных призывах к нарушению территориальной целостности Российской Федерации”. Ему грозит до пяти лет лишения свободы. Предварительное слушание состоялось в закрытом режиме 17 февраля.Обвинение Николая Семены основывается его публикации в сентябре 2015 года в которой содержится осуждение аннексии Крыма Россией и поддерживается идея блокады полуострова, позже организованной украинскими активистами. Журналист был ненадолго арестован в апреле 2016 года, а в его доме спецслужбы (ФСБ) провели обыск. После этого ему был запрещен выезд из региона, что помешало ему поехать в Киев, чтобы пройти там операцию на сердце. Несмотря на то, что суд до сих пор не состоялся, его фамилия с июля 2016 годa фигурирует в “списке террористов и экстремистов” опубликованной российской Федеральной службой по финансовому мониторингу.”После ликвидации плюрализма в Крыму российские власти берутся за его последних представителей, – отмечает глава отдела Восточной Европы и Центральной Азии “Репортёров без границ” Иоханн Бир, – высказывания, в которых обвиняетсяНиколай Семена, являются проявлением свободы слова. Мы призываем власти немедленно отказаться от выдвинутых против него обвинений и позволить ему свободно делать его работу. Международное сообщество не должно забывать Крым и не позволить, чтобы его население оказалось в новой информационной черной дыре”.Присоединение Крыма к России в марте 2014 года, сопровождалось радикальной чисткой медиаландшафта. Основные издания и журналистов, отрицательно относящихся к аннексии, либо заставили замолчать, либо они были вынуждены искать убежище в Киеве. Россия занимают 148 место из 180во всемирном рейтинге свободы прессы за 2016 год, опубликованным РБГ.

Eli Hartman|Odessa American Twitter TAGSbarbecuecompetitionFire Devil SmokersHot and ReadyKickin’ AshRankin Red DevilsRobbie McClureState High School BBQ Championships RANKIN What could be more Texan than a high school barbecue team?Well, maybe having three different teams from the same high school squad. In just three short years, the Rankin Red Devils have built a barbecue team that’s become one of the most recognized in the state.Rankin High School competition BBQ coach Robby McClure poses for a photo Tuesday afternoon in the Rankin High School welding shop. McClure is also the welding and woodworking teacher at Rankin High School. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanThe team is coached by Robbie McClure, who also teaches shop and welding at Rankin High School.Throughout this season, the Red Devils have collected awards at each competition they have attended and posted 52 awards this year.That includes last week’s appearance at the State High School BBQ Championships, which took place in Llano where Rankin’s teams each placed in the top 15.The team is split up into three different squads: “Kickin’ Ash,” “Hot and Ready” and the “Fire Devil Smokers.”The three squads are divided by categories with “Kickin’ Ash” being made up of freshmen and sophomores. The “Hot and Ready” team is for juniors while seniors are on the “Fire Devil Smokers.”McClure said most are novices and are also in welding.“They’re out here with me most of the time and we do all the hospitality rooms for all the other (school events).”Trophies won by the Rankin High School competition BBQ teams sit on display Tuesday afternoon at Rankin High School. The school has three separate competing BBQ teams that each have won trophies in state competitions. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanAt state, “Hot and Ready” placed eighth while “Kickin’ Ash” took 10th and the “Fire Devil Smokers” took 13th.“We won the grand champion in brisket and my juniors won fifth place chicken and third place beans and then our seniors won 10th place in dessert and fifth place in beans,” McClure said.In the past, Rankin’s Barbecue team has had up to two separate squads. This was the first year it had three.“Normally, there’s one or two (teams),” McClure said. “This year, we went above and beyond.”The million dollar question, however, is how does each competition work with high school barbecue?“It’s like any other barbecue competition,” McClure said. “You have to get your entry fees. We’ll have a cookers meeting and then they’ll draw their numbers to draw their meat. Most of the time, all the cooks are on Saturday. We can start our fires at 5 a.m. They don’t pick up their meat until six and when they do, they can do whatever they want.”Rankin High School senior BBQ pit master TJ Templeton, 18, center, checks on the fire inside one of the school’s portable smokers Tuesday afternoon at Rankin High School. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanThe rules for competing, which are detailed on the Texas High School Barbecue’s website, state that all meat must be furnished the day of the cook-off. No pre-marinating, pre-soaking or pre-spicing prior to the official start time is allowed.The meat is prepared from scratch within the time constraints of the cook-off. No meat is allowed to leave the team’s site area and a promoter will advise teams of the start time.As for the judging format, all entries are submitted in identical containers. The teams turn in their foods, which include chicken, ribs, brisket, pinto beans and a dessert.The dessert is an open category and must be cooked on site. Each team can cook what they want as long as it is a dessert and is acceptable to garnish and make it look nice for presentation.“Each competition is a little different,” McClure said. “Most of the ones we’ve been in have been an average competition. They get their meats, they get to season them. They do what they want. Nobody can help them. Only students go in. we give them the basics but we can’t help. We can’t do much except talk to them.”The Rankin High School competition BBQ teams pose for a photo with their trophies Tuesday afternoon at Rankin High School. The school has three separate competing BBQ teams that each have won trophies in state competitions. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanNormal competitions include about 20 teams but the state championships had over 60.“They compete against everybody,” McClure said. “They compete against Lubbock, Katy and then we had some small schools.”The team has won $67,000 in scholarships.“This has changed a bunch of these kids’ lives,” McClure said. “For every team member that wins a grand championship, it’s about $3,000 per person. $2,000 for reserved and $1,500 for third place. They’ve made some good money.”Rankin High School senior BBQ pit master TJ Templeton, 18, poses for a photo Tuesday afternoon in the Rankin High School workshop. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanThere are six seniors on this year’s team, including TJ Templeton.Each of the three teams have a “pit master.” Templeton is the pit master for the “Fire Devil Smokers” and has been a part of the program for all three years now.“It’s hard to explain but I like the experience,” Templeton said. “It’s something you know for a life-long time. You can use it every day and it’s just really fun competing with your friends.”He plans on going to Tarleton State in Stephenville where he aims to get his degree in chemical engineering.While his team ended up 13th at state, he’s enjoyed his time getting to be on the barbecue team.“It was pretty fun,” Templeton said. “I liked it. I was kind of disappointed in the outcome but you know, it can all go in different ways. It’s the luck of the draw.”Rankin High School junior BBQ pit master Noah Armendarez, 17, poses for a photo Tuesday afternoon in the Rankin High School workshop. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanJunior Noah Armendarez, who is finishing up his second year on the team and competed on the “Hot and Ready” squad, said his curiosity in learning how to barbecue is what drew him to the team.“That’s something that everyone needs to know how to cook,” Armendarez said. “It’s a life skill.”One of the things Armendarez said he enjoys about going to different competitions is the challenge and the competitive nature that it brings.“Since we’re all football players, that’s what we love to do, compete,” Armendarez said. “We get all riled up.”Indeed, most of the Rankin barbecue team members are involved in different sports and activities. Sometimes not all of them can make every single barbecue competition and a little adjusting is needed.“These kids are in everything,” McClure said. “They’re in basketball, football, golf so we have to work around what they’re in and we might have two or three this week that got to cook but didn’t cook last week. We just move it around.”The team has a unique way to practice and often use experiences such as cooking for school board meetings, fundraisers and at home track meets as a way to get better.“We cook a lot for the school,” McClure said. “We do the hospitality for the track meet, which we’ve had about three of them. We’ve had four one-acts that we’ve cooked for. We’ve cooked breakfast lunch and dinner for them. We do the school board dinner.”Fire dances behind a grate in one of Rankin High School’s BBQ smokers Tuesday afternoon at Rankin High School. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanThey’ve cooked in 18-degree weather and in wind storms.“We had to work on our barbecue pit temperatures,” McClure said. “They had to learn to control their pits because we use different pits. We have pits here at the school and pits that we travel with. The freezing cold was probably the first one that we had to cook through.”McClure said practices will include going over the basics and showing the kids how to tweak some things and make adjustments.“Our classroom consists of sitting down and talking about it for 20 or 30 minutes and then go out and start something and then come back in and do something else,” McClure said. “They keep notebooks and write down and keep track. If you cook in a blizzard, you have to cook longer because it takes forever. One thing that’s been hard is everyone here likes spicy foods but when you get up in the Hill Country, they like it sweet. We have to change. When we went to Dallas, they found out really quick that they like it dark. It’s one of those things that we’ve learned.”Rankin High School beginner BBQ pit masters Parker Prewozniak, 15, left, and Andres Reyes, 16, pose for a photo Tuesday afternoon in the Rankin High School workshop. Eli Hartman|Odessa AmericanFreshman Parker Prewozniak has had a lot of fun this season.“I like hanging out with the barbecue teams,” Prewozniak said. “It’s always a lot of fun being together and always working hard. It’s fun cooking. I enjoy it.”Competing alongside Andres Reyes on team “Kickin’ Ash” Prewozniak said they both enjoyed their experience of competing at state where they took 10th.“It’s different,” Prewozniak said. “It’s a lot bigger than you’re used to. Usually, we’re used to 10, 15, 20 teams. This one was 61 teams. We did pretty well.”The progress his squad has made in a short amount of time since starting a barbecue team has been impressive, according to McClure, adding that they’ve already received recognition from the magazine Texas Monthly.“They’ve come a long ways since we started,” McClure said. “We’ve helped quite a few schools. That’s one thing that’s nice about it. We were recommended by Texas Monthly and others because we had helped other schools.” Twitter Rankin High School competition BBQ coach Robby McClure poses for a photo Tuesday afternoon in the Rankin High School welding shop.

Boost for Creeslough with new €246,000 angling facilityBoost for Creeslough with new €246,000 angling facility

first_imgCreeslough & District Angling Association has welcomed the opening of a valuable new angling facility for improved safety and tourism at Lough na Tooey.The facilities, costing €246,000, includes a new slipway and mooring pontoon, a boatshed, and a car park. At Glen Lough, a new improved roadway over 1.2 kilometres leading to the angling site was constructed while at Owencarrow, 15 stiles and ladders and 33 fishing stands were erected over 300 metres of the river bank. The facility, which was co-funded by Inland Fisheries Ireland through its National Strategy for Angling Development, was officially launched by Sean Canney TD, Minister with responsibility for inland fisheries. Inland Fisheries Ireland provided funding of over €216,000 with Creeslough & District Angling Association providing match funding of €30,000 to enable the completion of these valuable amenities for the area.Paddy Boyle, Creeslough & District Angling Association said: “Fishing as a sport and recreation is dependent on the quality of the natural environment around us. Angling clubs have a role as custodians of this wonderful resource, and we owe it to future generations to look after the fish and their habitat. This development at Creeslough is proof of what angling clubs can achieve in partnership with local development agencies and Inland Fisheries Ireland. We asked for their help and got it because we presented them with a well thought out plan for the conservation and development of our fisheries.”Sean Canney TD, Minister with responsibility for inland fisheries, welcomed the angling amenities: “The new facilities will enable safe and easier access to the fishery for the local community, while also supporting tourism in North Donegal. This is a first class angling site located in a county renowned for its beautiful scenery and superb angling resource. As a result of this project, more local and visiting anglers will be fishing in the area, which in turn will provide both recreational and economic benefits for the community.” Donegal Minister Joe McHugh has welcomed the opening of the new facility.“Tá an áthas orm áiseanna iascaireachta nua a fheiceal ag An Craoslach,” dúirt an tAire.Minister McHugh added: “Angling offers a real boost to rural communities with the spend of fishermen coming from all over the country and also Europe and further afield to see the pristine waters and what they can offer.“The investment of €246,000 will help to enable safe and easier access to the fishery for local people and be a big win for tourism in North Donegal.“The Creeslough & District Angling Association have done great work on this and I’d like to thank Paddy Boyle and all his colleagues. We have a first class angling site in a stunning location.  I’ve no doubt it will bring in more and more fishermen and others who want to test their skills in the sport.” Boost for Creeslough with new €246,000 angling facility was last modified: June 19th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Sasol backs SA football developmentSasol backs SA football development

first_img10 October 2013 Sasol’s sponsorship will be directed at the LFA level, focusing on two Safa regions – Gert Sibande in Mpumalanga and Fezile Dabi in the Free State – over a three-year period. Jordaan said he had identified development as the key priority of the Safa administration, adding: “This sponsorship will inspire confidence in our Vision 2022 in the business sector, and will provide us with an important starting point for the implementation of our plan.” The agency is tasked with implementing Safa’s technical master plan, dubbed Vision 2022 by incoming Safa president Danny Jordaan. The plan aims to lift South Africa’s national football teams into the top three in Africa and the top 20 in the world by 2022. It seeks to do this by developing a national playing philosophy, training and licensing thousands of coaches, identifying and developing talent from an early age, and organising structured competition at local football association (LFA) level. Sasol will sponsor the South African Football Association’s (Safa’s) development agency to the tune of R3-million over the next three years, the petrochemicals giant announced on Wednesday.center_img “Sasol’s approach to sustainable development depends on building strong and mutually beneficial relationships, and we are proud to be working with the football association and contributing to the master plan,” Sasol group executive Maurice Radebe said in a statement. “We are delighted that Sasol has become the first corporate partner in our bold vision to change football from the ground up,” Safa Development Agency CEO Robin Petersen said in a statement. Sasol has been involved with the development of South African football for over 20 years, firstly with the national under-23 football team – dubbed “Amaglug-glug” thanks to Sasol’s sponsorship – and more recently with women’s football through Banyana Banyana and the Sasol League.
