The larynx sits above the shoulder line,” Solomons said.“I don’t know what happened. I haven’t seen it, but something must have hit him. He is not going to fracture his larynx (without being hit).”Worcester tweeted out after the match.

WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 20, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 As Alan Johnston spends 100th day as hostage, protests staged in Paris, London and Arab capitals “We must now, more than ever, take action to demand Alan Johnston’s swift release,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This BBC correspondent must not be forgotten as the Gaza Strip is plunged into more and more violent crises. It falls to Hamas, which now has sole control of the Gaza Strip, to do everything possible to obtain his release. Johnston should not have to pay for the instability in the Palestinian Territories, which he had been covering since 2005.”The press freedom organisation added: “Ismael Haniyeh and the other Hamas leaders must also order their security services to ensure that journalists are able to work safely and without restrictions in the Gaza Strip. Otherwise, more journalists will be taken hostage in the future.”100 days in captivityKidnapped on 12 March in Gaza City, Johnston today completes his 100th day as a captive. The chaos reigning in the Gaza Strip is making negotiations even more difficult. Promises by different Palestinian officials that he was about to be freed have not been kept. After saying nothing for nearly two months, a known group calling itself the Army of Islam claimed responsibility for his abduction on 8 May and demanded the release of several Muslims held in Britain, including Abu Qatada, a Palestinian who has been detained since 2005. Nearly a month later, the group reiterated its demands in an undated video showing Johnston.Alan JohnstonList of the media participating in the Champ-de-Mars appealAlgeria : El WatanAustria : Die Presse, ORF, APA, Der Osterreichische Journalist, Der Standard, Profil, Stadt WienAzerbaijan : TuranBelarus : BelaPanBelgium : Belga, De Standaard, La Libre Belgique, Le Soir, RTBF TV, RTL TVI, Enjeux Internationaux, Le Vif / L’Express, Vers l’Avenir, VRTBosnia : OslobodjenjeBrazil : O Globo, FSBBurkina Faso : L’EvénementCameroon : Le Jeune observateurCanada : CBC, Radio Canada, La Presse, The Gazette, Le Devoir, Le Journal de MontréalFrance : 20 Minutes, AFP, Euronews, Europe 1, France 2, France 24, France 3, France Info, France Inter, I-Télé, La Croix, Le Figaro, Le Monde, Les Echos, L’Express, Libération, Métro, Nouvel Observateur, NRJ, Ouest France, RMC Info, RTL, TF1, TV5 Monde, N-TVEMI CFD (école), LCIGambia : The PointGermany : ARD, Arte, Der Spiegel, Deutsche Welle, Die Tageszeitung, Die Welt, Focus, Frankfurter Rundschau, Stern, Süddeutsche Zeitung, ZDF, EPD, Financial Times Deutschland, Great Britain : BBC, Channel 4 News, News of the World, The Guardian, The Sun, The Sunday Times, The Times, CPU, ITN, ITV News, Skynews, The IndependentGreece : InfogreceIsrael : Jerusalem Post, Yedioth AhronothItaly : AGR, La Repubblica, What’s up, Il Manifesto, Il Messaggero, La Stampa Japan : Asahi ShimbunLebanon : As-Safir, Al-Akhbar, LBCMoldavia : TimpulMorocco : Le Journal hebdomadairePakistan : Daily Times, Friday Times Poland :Gazeta Wyborcza, TVN 24, Dziennik Qatar : Al-JazeeraSaudi Arabia : Al-Arabiya, Asharq Al-AwsatSouth Korea : The Monthly Chosun, Busan IlboSpain : ABC, Antena 3, Cadena SER, EFE, El País, El Periódico, Servimedia, TeleCinco, TVE, La Vanguardia, Cambio 16, Cuatro, El Mundo, Grupo EIG, La SextaSweden : Aftonbladet, Svenska Dagbladet, Göteborgs-PostenSwitzerland : Giornale del Popolo, Le Courrier, Le Temps, Tribune de Genève, Sonntags BlickUkraine : Unian, Kanal 5United Arab Emirates : Gulf NewsUnited States : ABC News, AP, Boston Globe, CBS News, CNN, Newstatesman Venezuela : Tal Cual Help by sharing this information RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes BBC correspondent Alan Johnston was kidnapped 100 days ago in Gaza.

Information hero Saouti Haïdara The photos of Saouti Haïdara, the 62-year-old dean of Mali’s press corps, on a hospital bed with his face swollen and his arm in plaster, went round Africa and prompted a one-day protest strike by the Malian media. It happened on 12 July 2012, two months after intelligence officers interrogated him about his sources. A dozen armed men kidnapped him from the headquarters of L’Indépendant, the newspaper he runs in Bamako, beat him with clubs and rifle butts, and threatened to kill him if he filed a complaint. He was found at a roadside later that night by colleagues, who took him to hospital. The violence inflicted on this respected journalist testified to the decline in Mali, formerly seen as a regional model of respect for freedom of information.

The average high street bank could increase sales by £65m per year if itimproved employee satisfaction by just 10 per cent, new research claims. A report, Achieving High Performance in Retail Banking, byInternational Survey Research (ISR), shows that the attitudes of employeesworking in high street banks have a direct impact on financial performance. The research looked at the attitude of more than 43,000 staff at 2,111branches across the UK and the Republic of Ireland. According to the report, employees who view their branch favourably activelysell, because they are committed to helping the bank succeed. They are morelikely to be proud of the products and services on offer and persuade customersto buy more from their branch. ISR project director Steve Young said: “This work demonstrates theimpact employees have on the bottom line. By improving the quality of theirleadership, investing in training and fostering a healthy climate, retail bankscan significantly reduce costs and dramatically improve sales. Superior branchperformance is impossible without committed employees.” Branches that improve employee satisfaction also see a reduction in annualcosts. People take fewer days off sick and branches can see a drop of up to 14per cent in absentee rates. www.isrsurveys.com Related posts:No related photos.

(1) The doubly-labelled water method was used in the first comprehensive study of penguin energetics throughout the reproduction and moult season, comparing gentoo penguins (inshore feeding, sexually monomorphic, share breeding duties equally) with macaroni penguins (offshore feeding, dimorphic, duties unequally shared). (2) While fasting during courtship and incubation, macaronis (both sexes) and female gentoos had field metabolic rates (FMR) of 4.1 and 3.8 W kg-1, respectively. Male gentoos also spending time at sea had an FMR of 7.5 W kg-1. Male macaroni FMR for fasting while brooding was 3.8 W kg-1. During chick-rearing, gentoo FMR was 6.8 W kg-1 early on, rising to 7.4 W kg-1 later; for macaronis FMR was 13 W kg-1. Estimated energy cost of foraging at sea was 16 and 22 W kg-1 for gentoos and macaronis, respectively. Gentoo and macaroni FMR during moult was 5.3 and 6.7 W kg-1. (3) Over the breeding and moult season, male and female gentoos have total and average daily energy expenditure (DEE) only 1% different, agreeing with expectation for monomorphic species sharing duties equally. Female macaronis (10% smaller than males) have average DEE 9% (17% on a mass-specific basis) greater than males, mainly because they spend more time rearing chicks, involving intensive foraging at sea. However, males spent more days at the colony so over the whole season female energy expenditure is only 3.5% above males. (4) Scaled mass-specific average DEE is 18% greater for macaronis than gentoos, chiefly because of the energy costs of offshore foraging trips. As their breeding and moult season is 20% shorter than gentoos, average absolute DEE is 13% less for macaronis; however, macaroni chick production is only half that of gentoos.
Cool temperate rainforests growing on the flanks of the Andes and along the Coastal Range in Valdivia (Chile) today provide the closest analogue for the fossil floras of Antarctica during the Eocene. This paper records key Valdivian elements in a Maastrichtian to Eocene wood flora that extends the evidence for a Valdivian analogue back as far as possibly the Late Cretaceous. Here we record the first occurrences of myrtaceous and eucryphiaceous wood taxa from the Maastrichtian-Palaeocene sediments of the James Ross Basin. In addition, a previously unrecorded morphotype is described and assigned to the form genus Antarctoxylon which Poole and Cantrill erected for fossil angiosperm woods of Antarctica with uncertain taxonomic affinities. This increases the number and range of the described morphotypes from the Antarctic Peninsula and helps further our understanding of the southern high latitude angiosperm dominated floras.
