Frontpage Africa back on the newsstands

first_img RSF urges Liberian authorities to investigate threats against journalists Receive email alerts The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa November 14, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Frontpage Africa back on the newsstands News ————-10.10.2013 – Editor’s 30-day release is “totally unsatisfactory”Reporters Without Borders calls for Frontpage Africa editor Rodney Sieh’s definitive release and the reopening of his newspaper after a court freed him yesterday on “compassionate grounds” for a period of 30 days beginning on 8 October. Jailed on 21 August for being unable to pay former agriculture minister Chris Toe 1.6 million dollars (1.2 million euros) in libel damages, Sieh is forbidden to travel abroad and must notify the authorities if he leaves the capital, Monrovia, during this temporary period of release.“Sieh’s temporary release is totally unsatisfactory,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This half-measure allows the Liberian government to save face with respect to all the pressure it has been under for several months from Liberian and international human rights NGOs, but it does not address the underlying problem, the illegitimacy of Sieh’s detention in the first place.“This case underlines the importance of completing the decriminalization of defamation by setting a ceiling on damage awards. Sieh was jailed for being unable to pay the excessive damages ordered in this case. Such a disproportionate amount helps to intimidate the media and obstruct freedom of information.”——-17.09.2013 – Journalist Rodney Sieh sent back to prison after hospitalizationReporters Without Borders is outraged by the re-admission to Monrovia central prison today of the journalist Rodney Sieh, after 22 days in the John F. Kennedy Memorial Hospital. “The harassment of this journalist by the Liberian legal system is totally underserved and we call for his immediate release,” the press freedom organization said.”Rodney Sieh was only carrying out his job as a journalist. We call once again on the government to take action to decriminalise media offences, in particular to stop imposing disproportionate fines on journalists in order to intimidate them, since the media play an important role in the fight against corruption.” Sieh was imprisoned on 20 August for refusing to pay a fine of nearly 1.6 million dollars in libel damages in a case brought by the former agriculture minister, Chris Toe.Since then, Toe has told the media he would drop the case if the journalist apologised publicly. Sieh’s lawyers say their client will not consider such an apology since the articles that appeared in his newspaper Frontpage Africa were based on extracts of official reports by the General Auditing Commission, the country’s anti-corruption body.

As he left the courtroom, he thanked all those who supported him while he was held and said the experience had reinforced his determination to expose corruption.“My newspaper will be on the newsstands again very soon and we are coming back stronger than ever,” he told reporters outside the court.———–14.11.2013 – Newspaper editor released, former minster drops caseReporters Without Borders is pleased to learn that Frontpage Africa editor Rodney Sieh is a free man again. Sieh was taken back to prison when his 30 days of “compassionate leave” expired on 8 November but was formally released the same day.In a related development, former agriculture minister Chris Toe yesterday withdrew his libel action against Sieh and let it be known he is no longer seeking payment of the 1.5 million dollars in damages ordered by a court. It was Sieh’s failure to pay that led to his imprisonment.“Sieh’s release is a great relief after this saga consisting of his arrest, imprisonment, home leave on ‘compassionate’ grounds, house arrest and finally last week’s release,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We hope it ends the judicial harassment to which Sieh and his newspaper have been subjected for the past four months.“We urge the authorities to complete the decriminalization of media offences by establishing a ceiling on damages awards without any further delay, so that such an episode does not recur. President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf signed the decriminalization bill into law in July 2012. More than a year later, Liberia’s entire press corps is still waiting for it to become a reality.”The court handling the Sieh case is expected to issue a final ruling on 18 November.———————21.10.2013 – Editor placed under house arrest for the remainder of paroleReporters Without Borders is disturbed by the justice ministry’s decision on 18 October to place Frontpage Africa editor Rodney Sieh under house arrest during the rest of the 30 days of “compassionate” leave from prison that he was accorded on 8 October.“The house arrest order contradicts the parole that Sieh was granted on health grounds,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Sieh is like a ball being batted to and fro in a power struggle between different Liberian officials. This constitutes cruel treatment and we call for the immediate withdrawal of this measure, which restricts his freedom of movement and his access to health care.”The house arrest order came two days after the Supreme Court ordered justice minister Christiana Tah to show cause why she should not be held in contempt for ordering Sieh’s temporary release in “defiance” of the court’s decision in August to jail him for failing to pay 1.6 million dollars in damages to a former agriculture minister.Sieh will now have to spend the remaining days of his parole confined to his home and under constant police surveillance.

HR: Positive Resignation – How to hand in your notice

first_img Previous Article Next Article A question that all HR/recruitment professionals get asked on at least a semi regular basis is: “How should I resign?”. The real answer is, there is no textbook answer as there are so many variables and moving parts involved relevant to e.g. company, manager, your professional style etc. but there are definitely a whole lot of wrong ways to do it. Here’s my 4 small tips that hopefully will offer some piece of mind during what in most cases is an awkward conversation (at best), and help it flow with a little more ease and hopefully avoid friction or burned bridges.Tip 1: No matter how much you might feel like it, don’t use the flaws of the company/manager as your reason for leaving. This is not the time or the place to have this conversation. My advice would be that if there is a burning desire inside you to offer some constructive criticism, do so at an exit interview in a rational and balanced manner. Instead use the positive points of why you have chosen to accept the new role as the reason for your departure.Tip 2: I’m firmly of the belief that we never stop learning and thus regardless of if you feel it has been the most fulfilling role or not, think of the lessons you’ve learned and thank your manager/company for the opportunity to have learned and grown as a professional.Tip 3: Unless extenuating circumstances dictate otherwise, wherever possible be willing to work your full contractual notice period. Make arrangements as such so as to make your transition out of the company as smooth as possible.Tip 4: If not already part of process, offer your time to have an “exit meeting/interview” with your line manager with the aim of trying to shed light on where in your opinion, the organisation could improve. This is where you can offer your CONSTRUCTIVE feedback and show that you are not harbouring any ill feelings due to some negative experiences but instead are aiming to offer your opinion to ensure other employees don’t feel the same thing.These are by no means complicated steps and is relatively “back to basics” kind of stuff but I hope it will give some piece of mind to anyone who may be looking for a little direction on ways to part ways in a positive light.

US Navy sub-hunter drone aces sea trials

first_img Photo, video: DARPASea Hunter, the U.S. Navy’s unmanned anti submarine warfare vessel, has recently completed at-sea tests off the coast of San Diego, California.Developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) under the Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUV) program, the vessel met or surpassed all performance objectives for speed, maneuverability, stability, seakeeping, acceleration/deceleration, and fuel consumption, as well as establishing confidence in mechanical systems reliability in an open-ocean environment, Leidos, a company involved involved in the vessel’s manufacturing has confirmed.The completion of Sea Hunter’s performance trials is the first milestone in the two-year test program co-sponsored by DARPA and the Office of Naval Research. Testing in upcoming months is scheduled to include testing of sensors, the vessel’s autonomy suite, compliance with maritime collision regulations, and proof-of-concept demonstrations for a variety of U.S. Navy missions.Back in April 2016, DARPA said the vessel reached a top speed of 27 knots (31 mph/50 kph) at its Oregon site.The vessel has a number of unusual features because it does not need to accommodate people. For example, interior spaces are accessible for maintenance but aren’t designed to support a permanent crew.According to DARPA, at-sea testing on a surrogate vessel, ACTUV’s autonomy suite has proven it is capable of operating the ship in compliance with maritime laws and conventions for safe navigation—including International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, or COLREGS.ACTUV accomplishes this feat through advanced software and hardware that serve as automated lookouts, enabling the ship to operate safely near manned maritime vessels in all weather and traffic conditions, day or night.The vessel was also developed at a fraction of the price of regular anti-submarine surface combatants. The fact that it would never have a man onboard will allow the vessel to match and exceed the speeds of submarines as the vessel would have reduced constraints on conventional naval architecture elements such as layout, accessibility, crew support systems, and reserve buoyancy.In September 2014, DARPA signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Office of Naval Research to jointly fund an extended test phase of an ACTUV prototype.DARPA will collaborate with ONR to fully test the capabilities of the vessel and several innovative payloads during open-water testing scheduled to begin this summer off the California coast after preliminary checkout and movement to San Diego.In case everything goes according to plan, the program could transition to the U.S. Navy by 2018.Below is a video of the vessel during its first out at sea.
