Download the press release by Journalist en Danger (JED), in French, here.RWB supports JED’s appeal to regional, national and international authorities to do everything possible to end the threats against Bisila so that he can work freely and independently.The Governor of Province Orientale has made repeated and explicit threats against the journalist. On 18 November 2014, he said, in front of witnesses, including MONUSCO staff, that he intended to have the journalist arrested. Five days earlier he had personally intimidated the journalist over the phone. Radio Okapi’s journalists have already paid a high price for using their right to freedom of information in the DRC, ranked 151st out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Published on February 22, 2017 at 10:50 pm Contact Paul: [email protected] | @pschweds Gillon wowed the buzzing Dome crowd with under five minutes left in the first half by crossing over multiple times leading to Jayson Tatum tumbling to the floor. Gillon backpedaled and nailed a 3. As he walked back on defense, his facial expression didn’t change. It was the kind of play he was used to making at Arkansas-Little Rock and Colorado State against weaker competition.But this was Duke, the 10th-ranked team in the country with the seventh most efficient offense nationwide, per Kenpom.com. On the Blue Devils’ next possession, Tatum, the future first-round NBA draft pick, hit a mid-range jumper. Syracuse trailed by eight and eventually as much as 10.The two teams traded body blow after body blow all game. The team with the ball last would be in the best position to win.For the seventh straight game, Syracuse faced a double-digit deficit. It was used to being in that position and the combination of Battle and Gillon exploded in the second half and combined for 44 points.“This team keeps fighting,” Boeheim said.Jessica Sheldon | Staff PhotographerGillon, in particular, has seemingly bounced back every time. After zero points in back-to-back games against North Florida and Connecticut, he scored 23 against Boston University. He followed up a zero-point performance against Notre Dame by leading SU down the stretch against Wake Forest in its first ACC single-digit win.On Sunday, Gillon had his worst game of the season. He went 2-for-10 from the field with three assists and five costly turnovers. Each time he touched the ball, Georgia Tech fans berated him with “air ball” chants. Now, Gillon’s resilience has sparked Syracuse’s in a season that nearly slipped away.“How do you come back from a horrible game — and then do that? It’s special and underrated,” Gillon’s mother, Phyllis, said via text message. “(Boeheim) didn’t get down on John after the Georgia Tech game. Do fans really think players want to play poorly? They are trying to miss shots? That belief bore fruit. The outcome you saw tonight.”Gillon’s first-ever buzzer-beater came in a fourth grade AAU tournament. About 50 people witnessed the shot. His friends jumped on him. Wednesday’s buzzer-beater came in front of nearly 30,281 more people. In the locker room after the game, an equipment manager held Gillon’s jersey. He showed it to a security guard before putting it in the laundry.The transition from a motion-type offense to a pick-and-roll-type offense took time. Four new players in a starting lineup did too. And Gillon didn’t get off to a hot start Wednesday, either. In the final 13 minutes, he scored 12 of his 26 points. He reached the second level of Duke’s defense consistently and finished.“Once I get a little taste of blood and I score, I just get addicted to it.”The instant classic’s final shot cued another court storming. Another Top 10 win. Another gasp of breath for Syracuse’s once-lost season. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ The season of comebacks was on the precipice of another. With two minutes and 20 seconds left, a security guard warned fans in courtside seats to be aware of a possible court storming, Syracuse’s third of the season.With eight seconds left, Tyler Lydon passed the ball to Tyus Battle. Battle then lobbed it to John Gillon, who caught it with 4.4 seconds left. Gillon hadn’t realized how little time was left. He looked up at the clock and knew he had to sprint down the court.“I was like, ‘Alright, I gotta go make a play,’” Gillon said.He stopped at the 3-point line in the tied game. There was only time for one shot. The Orange had been in this position before. He beat the buzzer to force overtime against North Carolina State. Battle beat the buzzer against Clemson.Lydon rushed to get the offensive rebound. Gillon didn’t know if it’d go in when it left his hand. Assistant coach Gerry McNamara screamed, “Bank! Bank! Bank!” from the sideline because he saw it was going long. The shot hit off the backboard and fell through the basket. Syracuse beat Duke. 78-75.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I’m going to try and be a stone-cold killer every game,” Gillon said.Jessica Sheldon | Staff PhotographerThe win over No. 10 Duke (22-6, 10-5 Atlantic Coast) provides a massive boost to Syracuse’s (17-12, 9-7) NCAA Tournament resume. Wednesday night marked SU’s third Top 10 win of the season. Each previous time, students stormed the court. They did it again after 11 ties and 16 lead changes, none more dramatic than the final one.Gillon didn’t sub out once and finished with 26 points on 9-of-14 shooting and six assists. His ability to drive and score, which he showed more and more as the game went on, is the reason he took over midseason as Syracuse’s starting point guard. After committing five turnovers in each of the past two games, both losses, Gillon committed zero on Wednesday.“We go as John Gillon goes,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said.After joining the ACC in 2013-14, Syracuse and Duke played two of the most memorable games in recent SU history. In the first matchup that year, the Orange beat the Blue Devils in overtime. Gillon’s high school teammate Rasheed Sulaimon hit a buzzer-beater that tied the game at the end of regulation. The two talked last night. Gillon told Sulaimon he’d “kill Duke for him.”MORE COVERAGEGallery: Syracuse’s upset victory over No. 10 DukeThe Final Word: Syracuse stuns No. 10 Duke, 78-75Tyus Battle scores 18 points in Syracuse’s 78-75 upset win over No. 10 DukeWhat we learned from Syracuse’s 78-75 win against No. 10 Duke
Bayern doubled their lead when the club’s record signing Tolisso, who cost 41.5 million euros ($48.6m) from Lyon, headed home on 18 minutes when Arturo Vidal found him in the box.Tolisso could have scored again soon after when he hit the post.Torrential rain then forced the start of the second-half to be delayed by 15 minutes.The stadium briefly emptied in the break as supporters sought shelter before resuming their soaking wet seats.Leverkusen’s new coach Heiko Herrlich responded to his side’s woeful defending in the first half with two changes for the second 45 minutes.Germany winger Julian Brandt replaced Jamaica’s Leon Bailey and defender Aleksandar Dragovic replaced new signing Sven Bender at centre-back.It changed little and when Chile international Charles Aranguiz pulled Lewandowski to the floor as Bayern attacked, the VAR spotted the foul and the Polish striker converted the resulting spot kick on 53 minutes.Moments later, Neuer’s understudy Sven Ulreich proved his worth in the Bayern goal to deny Brandt, then Dominik Kohr in quick succession.With an hour played, Bayern’s stand-in captain Thomas Mueller made way for Arjen Robben.Leverkusen showed heart when Brandt’s pass found Mehmedi unmarked on 65 minutes and the Swiss international slotted home their consolation. Robert LewandowskiBerlin, Germany | AFP | Robert Lewandowski converted a second-half penalty, awarded by a video assistant referee intervention, as champions Bayern Munich opened the 2017/18 Bundesliga season with a 3-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Friday.The video assistant referee is being trialled in the Bundesliga this season and came into play for the first time to spot that Lewandowski was fouled in the area in the second-half.The Polish striker dutifully slotted home the penalty to put Bayern 3-0 up after new signings Germany defender Niklas Suele and France midfielder Corentin Tolisso scored with first-half headers.Leverkusen deservedly pulled a goal back at 3-0 down when Swiss striker Admir Mehmedi capped off a bright passage of play with a fierce shot.“That was a special day for me — my first game for my new club and my first goal, that was nice,” said Suele.Leverkusen’s Germany defender Jonathan Tah was left ruing his side’s poor first-half display.“We were asleep in the first half and conceded stupid goals,” said Tah.On a dramatic opening night, the start of the second half was also delayed by 15 minutes as torrential rain swept the stadium.Having won last season’s German league title — their fifth in a row — by 15 points, the thumping win in Munich suggests Bayern are in no mood to relax their iron-grip on the Bundesliga title.The hosts were missing a host of injured stars at Munich’s rain-lashed Allianz Arena including new club captain Manuel Neuer, defender Jerome Boateng and new-signing James Rodriguez.Nevertheless, it took just nine minutes for Bayern to go ahead.Centre-back Suele nodded Sebastian Rudy’s free-kick past his Germany teammate, Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno.

Two women with outstanding warrants have added new charges to their list after they were found to be driving around town with a 16-day old infant on the floor of their car.The incident occurred in London, Kentucky Thursday.Officials say both 32-year-old Rebeca Jean Fultz and her mother, 69-year-old Charolotte J. Simpson were pulled over for outstanding warrants Thursday around 7:30 pm.While authorities conducted the arrest, Fultz informed them that her newborn was in the car. Officials reported that they could not find the infant at first, because she was not strapped into a car seat. The infant was later found on the floor of the vehicle between the passenger and front seat.Officials also reported that the infant was covered in ants, had a soiled diaper, and was laid amongst trash, an unsecured flat-screen television, and seemed to be having trouble breathing.The infant was taken to an area hospital where their condition was said to have since improved. The infant is still, however, being treated for dehydration, and will be turned over to social services.As for the child’s mother and grandmother, they have been taken to a local jail where they face child abuse charges along with their warrants.

ROSEAU, Dominica (CMC):Grenada’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has bristled at the suggestion by West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) President Dave Cameron that his board was too busy to have an urgent meeting with CARICOM leaders to discuss the recommendations of the Governance Review Panel report.Speaking on the opening day of the OECS Summit here, Mitchell reiterated that CARICOM heads were serious about ensuring there were fundamental changes in West Indies cricket and urged Cameron to focus on the interests of Caribbean people and not those of himself and his board members.”We (CARICOM heads) said we’re prepared, in the interest of our people, to meet immediately to look at how we’re going forward,” said Mitchell, who is also chairman of CARICOM’s Cricket Governance Committee.”I can’t believe this … I saw a (news) report the president of the West Indies Cricket Board say his people are very busy – they are professional people with a lot of responsibilities – so the heads are not professional people. So we can meet, we can give up everything else.”All I ask the president (is to) accept the responsibility and think less of yourself and your board members and more of the people of the entire Caribbean.”Earlier this month, Mitchell had asked Cameron for an “urgent meeting” to discuss the Governance Review Panel report, which, among other things, recommended the “immediate dissolution” of the WICB.However, Cameron suggested at the time, and reiterated last weekend, that there was unlikely to be any talks with CARICOM before the already scheduled December 12 directors’ meeting in St Lucia.Delivering the feature address at Cayman Cricket’s Annual Awards Dinner in George Town last Saturday, Cameron said the board comprised a “number of professionals” and therefore simply calling a meeting was “not that easy”.Mitchell said he found it hard to accept the WICB’s reluctance to meet urgently with CARICOM heads, especially since it was the board who had agreed to the establishment of the panel and had helped to recommend its members.”Let me state the facts. Our leaders recognised that they had a responsibility to the people not to just a particular issue, but to the people, so what affects the people must affect the leaders. If not, we’re not leaders,” explained Mitchell, who, along with several other Caribbean prime ministers, met with the WICB in a crucial meeting last April in Grenada.”We agreed to meet with all stakeholders. We gave of our time – the prime minister of The Bahamas (Perry Christie) his country plays little or no cricket, but he left his country and came to Grenada, engaged with the West Indies Cricket Board and all stakeholders.Board decisions”We agreed to set up an independent body with distinguished Caribbean citizens and we agreed to give serious effort to implementing the decision of that group. It was not a Keith Mitchell recommendation, it was not a (Roosevelt) Skerritt recommendation, the leaders proceeded to give effect to that.”The board had on its team the head of (their) Governance of Cricket – the distinguished president of the Caribbean Court of Justice (Sir) Dennis Byron. They recommended him to be on the committee. They recommended the Caribbean Development Bank president (Dr Warren Smith). It was not my recommendation …”Mitchell said Cameron and the WICB needed to take a cue from Caribbean leaders who were also busy but were willing to make time to discuss the recommendations.”Now,, the recommendation comes out, I cannot understand. Heads of Government are busy people, they have so much to do, I don’t need extra work,” the Grenada leader stressed.”Sometimes, I can’t find a minute to midday in Grenada to do some of the things I have to do, so I don’t need this and I know all leaders don’t need it.”He made it clear that the move to establish the panel was purely out of a desire to rescue Caribbean cricket.”We have our problems. Like everything else, we’re up today and down tomorrow, but we are down far too long and we can only see one thing going down and down.”
13 May 2010In a week that marked exactly a year since assuming the Presidency, President Jacob Zuma told Parliament that his administration was succeeding on service delivery and changing the attitude and style of government.“We can already feel the sense of urgency in all government spheres. Gradually, we are succeeding in changing the attitude and style of government and transforming the way government relates to citizens,” he said, while delivering the Presidency’s Budget Vote in the National Assembly on Wednesday.Zuma said there was visible progress in some identified priorities, such as health, poverty eradication, job creation, quality education, rural development and the fight against crime and corruption.He pointed to the recent launch of massive campaigns on HIV, TB and measles, the increased roll out of HIV treatment and prevention measures as well as the testing campaign that saw him, among other senior government officials, get tested for HIV.Improving educationShifting his focus to education, Zuma said the revitalisation of the country’s education system was progressing well adding the Departments of Basic as well as Higher Education and Training have directed attention on improving performance in schools and the training of a skilled workforce.Shortly after assuming office last year, Zuma announced a split in the education portfolio into two separate departments in a bid to bring more focus in the system.Several changes were made in the schooling system such as the introduction of compulsory numeracy and literacy tests for learners from Grades 6 to 9.The government has also allocated about R3.2-billion in infrastructure funds to universities over the next two financial years. Zuma said the money will help increase the production of graduates in the critical areas of engineering, life and physical sciences, teacher education and health sciences.In addition, he said, work towards the establishment of universities in Mpumalanga and the Northern Cape will continue this financial year, in order to further expand access to higher education.“We are doing this in recognition of the fact that nearly 70% of all South Africans are under the age of 35. We have to invest in our youth, in our future,” Zuma said.Recovery from recessionZuma further said all indications are that South Africa was recovering from the recession that saw thousands of people losing their jobs. “Our economy is growing and investors are showing confidence in our country. The government responded swiftly to the recession and a lot has been achieved under the auspices of the framework for South Africa’s response to the international economic crisis,” he said.Zuma said the government was engaged in a number of activities to respond to communities in distress and to assist vulnerable workers and troubled enterprises and sectors of the economy.Work has also been taking place through the Commission for Mediation, Conciliation and Arbitration (CCMA) to strengthen efforts to avoid retrenchments, he said.To protect the poor and jobless from inflated food prices, Zuma said the government had directed the competition authorities to speed up their investigations into price-fixing and cartels in the food supply chain. As a result, a number of implicated companies have been prosecuted.Industrial policyHe was also confident that the Industrial Policy Action Plan – which seeks to grow industrial sectors to retain existing jobs and to create new decent jobs – launched by Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davis earlier this year would produce a concrete plan to significantly expand South African industrial capacity.Other measures that enable job creation would include stepping up the implementation of the expanded public works programme, investing in further education and skills development and encouraging small business development and entrepreneurship.“We now know what works and what needs to be corrected, and what needs to be strengthened,” said Zuma who also announced the names of the people to serve on a presidential review committee of state-owned enterprises.The committee will identify challenges faced by these entities and recommend possible changes in their running.Source: BuaNews
Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Every entrepreneur will tell you that recruiting the right candidate is important. While startups are constantly trying to find programmers that mesh well with their culture, team and work-style, one article suggests that companies still struggle finding candidates that know how to program at all. Jeff Atwood published a post this morning entitled, The Non-Programming Programmer with a stunning look at how many interviewees misrepresent their abilities. Says Atwood, “I am stunned, but not entirely surprised, to hear that ‘the vast majority’ of so-called programmers who apply for a programming job interview are unable to write the smallest of programs… It’s the equivalent of attempting to hire a truck driver and finding out that 90 percent of the job applicants can’t find the gas pedal or the gear shift.” Atwood suggests putting candidates through a quick programming test before screening for culture-fit and personality. In a past post he presented us with some phone screening questions and something he calls the FizzBuzz test. Today he points to Mike Lin’s See[Mike]Code as an excellent screening resource. Lin’s site allows you to watch candidates program in real-time. Those that complete the 10 line programming test are then considered for an in-person interview. These tests can potentially save a company alot of money as many in-person meetings require springing for airfare and a hotel room. Other good screening resources might be found in a candidate’s GitHub profile or in links to their contributions to open source projects.

Speed up your rendering times in After Effects with these quick tips.Rendering is an annoying (but unavoidable) aspect of the motion graphics process. However there are a few steps you can take to make your After Effects renders as fast as possible.1. Use the Right Graphics CardAfter Effects is an incredibly intense program for your graphics card (no surprise, right?) And while there may be hundreds of graphics cards available for your computer, only a few are recommended by Adobe to run After Effects. Adobe specifically recommends certain GeForce, Quadro, and Tesla cards. You can find the full list on the system requirements page on Adobe’s website. If you’re using a sub-par card, you’ll likely see an instant render speed increase when you switch.2. Upgrade Your RAMIf you work day in and day out in After Effects then upgrading your RAM is the way to go. Adobe recommends at least 4GB of RAM to run After Effects, but you’ll benefit from much more than that. It’s not uncommon for professional AE users to have 32GB of RAM or more.3. Use a Solid-State DriveA solid state drive is a quick way to increase not only rendering speed in After Effects, but also the overall speed of your computer in general. If you purchased your internal or external hard drive for less than $100 it’s time for an upgrade. With a solid state drive After Effects will be able to load assets, reference the cache, and load effects much faster….all leading to reduced render times.4. Use Two Hard DrivesWhen you render your footage to the same hard-drive your project is saved on, you are forcing that hard-drive to perform two operations simultaneously: read and write. While this doesn’t lead to render times that are twice as slow, it does lead to reduced render times. Instead, try using one hard drive to run the program with assets and another hard drive to render the finished video.5. Turn On MultiprocessingAfter Effects has the hand ability to render out multiple frames at the same time using multiple processing cores. By default, multiprocessing isn’t turned on in After Effects, you have to do it by hand. To do so navigate to After Effects>Preferences>Memory & Multiprocessing. A screen that looks like this will pop up:Simply click the check box next to ‘Render Multiple Frames Simultaneously’ and adjust the settings to your liking.6. Reduce Pre-CompsPre-comps are a funny business inside of After Effects. When it comes to creating an organized and convenient workflow in After Effects, pre-comps are a extremely efficient. However, pre-comps aren’t always best when it comes to creating fast render times. This is because pre-comps require pixel information to pass through multiple compositions before rendering to your hard drive.7. Clean up your CompositionsJust because you can’t see a layer inside your composition doesn’t mean it isn’t being rendered by your CPU. So before you send your composition to the render queue make sure you delete/trim any unused layers inside your composition.8. Trim Layers Off-ScreenFiles that are actually out of the video frame will still take a toll on the rendering time, especially if you are using 3D cameras. If your goal is to optimize render times you need to use the trim feature (option + [ or ]) to trim your layers up to the exact frame that they will be used in your composition.9. Turn off Ray-Traced 3DRay-Traced 3D layers was one of the coolest features introduced into After Effects in CS6 – finally a way to create 3D models directly in After Effects! This excitement was short-lived though, as Ray tracing takes way to long to be practical for everyday use. Make sure your composition is set to Classic 3D instead of Ray-Traced 3D before you render. If you don’t you will see your render time increase by at least double.10. Close Other ProgramsIt can be easy to forget, especially when using the Adobe Dynamic Link, but before you render a composition in After Effects you need close out all the unused programs running on your computer. This will free up space for your CPU to run After Effects.11. Choose the Right CodecLess compressed codecs like MOV take longer to render in After Effects than smaller codecs like H.264 or ProRes. It’s important to ask yourself what your video will be used for once it’s done. Will it be on TV or simply embedded on the web? If it’s going online, chances are it’s going to be incredibly compressed anyways. So maybe you don’t need to export your video as lossless?12. Turn Off Motion Blur, Depth of Field, & 3D if UnnecessaryWhen it comes down to increasing your render speed in After Effects you need to ask yourself, “will this feature be used in my video?” Often you can toggle unused features off to make your render times much faster. For example, if you don’t need your layers to have motion blur you can toggle the motion graphics button to off. If you have a 3D camera do you really need to have depth of field or are you trying to get a 2D flat look? If your layers are set to 3D is it for a good reason? Could you simulate 3D by scaling down your objects and moving them in 2D space?13. Be Selective with EffectsNot all effects are created equal. Some take more time than others to render. To speed up render times you need to become very selective about the effects you use. Most effects have been optimized to render across multiple threads on your CPU, but there are a few that will only allow After Effects to use one thread at a time. If an effect only uses one thread it will take much more time to render. These effects are: Auto Color Auto Contrast Auto Levels Cartoon Lens Blur Particle Playground Shadow/HighlightThis list of effects was created by Edward Korcheg from Template Monster.14. Newest Version of AEWhile each update to After Effects may not seem revolutionary, Adobe is constantly trying to make After Effects faster and more optimized for users. It is important to install the latest version of After Effects available to you. Sure, back in the day it was a large financial commitment to purchase each Creative Suite update as they would be released, but now that the Creative Cloud is prevalent you should always have the latest update.Bonus: Use Media Encoder to Export CompositionsOne of the biggest problems with using the render queue in After Effects is the fact that you can’t do anything else while rendering. However, this is a “hack” that you can use to render AE compositions and still work on another project, using Adobe Media Encoder. Simply import your AE project into Media Encoder and you will be able to select which composition you wish to export. Because this doesn’t go directly through After Effects you will be able to work on other projects during this process.Know of any other ways to improve render speeds in After Effects?
