Officials deny entry to US journalist who covered war in Aceh from rebels’ side

Hassan Wirajuda to ensure that he will be allowed to enter Indonesia freely in future.Nessen was arrested in 2003 in the troubled province of Aceh after covering an army offensive against the Free Aceh Movement (GAM) from the rebels’ side.”The press freedom situation has improved considerably in Aceh since the peace accords were signed last year, but now this arbitrary decision casts doubt on the readiness of the highest authorities to open the province to journalists who denounced the army’s atrocities during the war,” Reporters Without Borders said.”It seems as though some people in the government have not yet turned the page on the terrible years,” the organisation added.Nessen was denied entry when he arrived at the airport of Medan, on the island of Sumatra, on a flight from Malaysia. But his Aceh-born wife, Sya’diah Syeh Marhaban, and the GAM leaders travelling with him were allowed in. Officials gave Nessen no explanation for their decision. He told Reporters Without Borders he was “very surprised” and flew back to Malaysia.The head of the Medan immigration service told the Jakarta Post that the decision was politically-motivated. “The government still considers William Nessen as dangerous, because his reports were hostile to Indonesia,” he was quoted as saying. The orders reportedly came from the ministry of political, legal and security affairs in Jakarta.Nessen was arrested in Banda Aceh on 24 June 2003 and sentenced to one month and 10 days in prison for an alleged breach of the immigration laws. On his release on 3 August 2003, he was expelled from Indonesia and told he was banned from returning for a year.

DS News Webcast: Friday 5/20/2016

first_imgSubscribe in Featured, Media, Webcasts The April 2016 New Residential Construction report from HUD and the U.S. Census Bureau released this week, which measures quarterly housing starts and completions by purpose and design, found that single-family built-for-rent homes comprised 4 point 3 percent of all housing starts during the first quarter. That share is higher than the historical average of 2 point 8 percent but down from its peak of 5 point 8 percent which occurred in early 2013.For the last four quarters, single-family homes built-for-rent have totaled about 32 thousand, according to the National Association of Home Builders. That number has been on the rise—research from John Burns Real Estate Consulting indicated that approximately 25 thousand single-family detached homes were built for renting in all of 2014.About 36 percent of all residential home sales in February were all-cash transactions, according to data released by CoreLogic on Thursday. This number represents a decline of 2 point 5 percentage points year-over-year and about 11 percentage points from its peak of 47 percent reached in January 2011. CoreLogic estimates that if cash sales continue their current rate of decline, they will be back to their pre-crisis average of 25 percent by the middle of 2018.

UPDATED: Saints sweep defending champs right out of the playoffs

first_img Selkirk finally extended their lead with 9:08 remaining in the third when Logan Proulx banged home the rebound from a Kam Crawford point shot on a Saints power-play.Minutes later, Fidgett iced the game with his team’s third goal, taking a pass from defenceman Dylan Smith and deking around Gill for his second point of the night. Alex Sirard picked up the shut out in his BCIHL playoff debut with 13 saves, while Sunny Gill took the loss after allowing three goals on 37 shots. The Saints held a 27-12 edge in shots on goals through two periods and limited the Vikes to just one shot on goal in the third. Selkirk College continued to add to their list of ‘firsts’ accomplished during the 2012-13 B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season, as the Saints advanced to the league finals for the first time by beating the University of Victoria by a 4-1 score on Saturday night.The win capped a two-game series sweep of the defending BCIHL champion Vikes at the Castlegar Recreation Complex, as Selkirk had taken Game one by a 3-0 score Friday. With the win, Selkirk will now host Simon Fraser University in a best-of-three series for the BCIHL championship beginning March 15 in either Castlegar or Nelson.The site location depends on the succes of the Castlegar Rebels in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League series against Beaver Valley.Should the Rebels prevail in the best-o-seven Murdoch Division Final, Selkirk’s playoff series would be move to the NDCC Arena in Nelson.If Beaver Valley wins, the games would be played in Castlegar. The Saints came bursting out of the gates in the first period and built a four-goal lead before intermission.The rally started when Jackson Garrett beat UVic starter Sunny Gill with a wrist shot from the low slot to give Selkirk a 1-0 lead.Team captain Jordan Wood added a pair of power-play goals to triple the lead and Cody Fidgett struck for his second goal of the series with 51 seconds remaining in the frame. That was all the offence the Saints would need as Victoria got on the board on a second period man-advantage but otherwise couldn’t beat Selkirk netminder Alex Sirard. The 21-year old continued his strong play on the heels of a shutout on Friday by turning aside 26 shots and helping his team kill 10 power-play opportunities, including a pair of lengthy two-man advantages. “We had an excellent first period tonight and fought through some penalty troubles the rest of the way to grind out a win,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”UVic is a hard-working team that never gave up tonight and made us earn the victory. Alex (Sirard) came up with some big saves when he had to and our top offensive guys got the job done.” Wood, Logan Proulx and Kam Crawford combined for six points on the night, though Proulx’s evening was cut short when he was ejected from the game for a hit from behind late in the first period. Friday’s series-opener is set for a 7:30 p.m start time.Saints win! Saints win! Game two Saturday in CastlegarSelkirk College opened their 2013 postseason with a win on Friday night, topping the defending B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League champions from the University of Victoria by a 3-0 score at the Castlegar Recreation Complex.With the victory the Saints take a 1-0 lead in the best-of-three first round series and will look to eliminate the Vikes and move on the league championships with another win on Saturday night.”We had some trouble finishing plays tonight but overall it was a good start to our playoffs against a very hard-working team,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”UVic has nine players back from the team that won a league championship last season, so there’s a lot of playoff experience on that bench.””We did a great job limiting their shots and scoring opportunities, and when you play tight defensively it allows some time to get the offence clicking,” Dubois added. Mason Spear opened the scoring for the hosts just under five minutes in to the first period when a centering pass from linemate Cody Fidgett deflected off his skate and past UVic starter Sunny Gill.And that 1-0 margin stayed intact for most of the night, as Gill turned aside numerous Saints scoring opportunities and Selkirk held their visitors to only a handful of shots on goal through two periods. Saturday’s game is set for a 7:30 p.m. faceoff.Should the Vikes win, a third and deciding game would take place on Sunday at 6 p.m.  SAINTS NOTES: In the BCIHL’s other first round series, second-ranked SFU took a 1-0 lead over third-seeded Thompson Rivers University with a 6-1 home ice win. Game 2 in the series is set for Saturday night in Kamloops.last_img read more

Hydro looks to connect Site C to South Peace

first_imgBC Hydro is now confronted with a dramatic load growth in this region and as a result has a growing list of local area power generation stories.Among them is the Fort St. John Substation Transformer Upgrade Project, one of the hundreds of capital projects underway or under consideration.Hydro projections show that electricity demand will increase by about 17 per cent by 2024 in this region, and by province wide by 40 per cent over the next two decades.- Advertisement -Thus the crown utility will invest an average of $2.4 billion a year over the next 10 years on upgrades and additions to its power generating stations and transmission systems.Currently, a $296-million project is underway in the South Peace to upgrade distribution in the Groundbirch area, east of Dawson Creek.Crews started stringing the power lines on the Dawson Creek and Chetwynd Area Transmission Project late last month, and Hydro is now reviewing options to get more electricity to that line.Advertisement To that end, the Peace Regional Electrical Supply Project (PRES) is being studied, and spokesperson Leslie Wood says while most the route options would plug into the WAC Bennett Dam, two of the 11 under consideration would connect directly into the Site C dam.“There’s a number of ways that we can build this project, and most of our emphasis has been on looking at alternatives that tie in to the GM Shrum facility, either new transmission lines coming from GM Shrum, or coming from new substations that we would build on lines that already come from GM Shrum,” said Wood.“We’ve got about nine different alternatives in that area that we’re looking at.”Wood continued: “When approvals came through for Site C, it behooved us to look and see is there some way with Site C going ahead that we could build the PRES project, the new transmission lines, from Site C down to the Dawson-Groundbirch area.”Advertisement The shortest of the route alternatives is about 55 kilometres, with several around 80, and the longest at about 105.This is one of several tentative Site C power source spin-off plans, which also include using the reservoir of the third dam on the Peace as a possible new Fort St. John water supply source.last_img read more

Swiss, Dutch delight in A1GP SA

first_img23 February 2009Jeroen Bleekemolen of the Netherlands and Neel Jani of Switzerland secured victories in the sprint and feature races of the South African A1GP at Kyalami on Sunday. Unfortunately for the home fans, luck was not with Adrian Zaugg and Team South Africa.Bleekemolen, with a sharp start, jumped into the lead by the first corner of the Sprint, with Switzerland’s Jani on his tail after he too enjoyed a good start. Portugal’s Felipe Albuquerque dropped a place, while Narain Karthikeyan moved up to fourth from fifth at the start.India, however, surrendered her place quickly when Monaco’s Clivio Piccione exerted some pressure and made a clean pass. Shortly after that, championship leader Ireland, with Adam Carroll at the wheel, also overtook India.Mandatory pit stopAfter a mandatory pit stop Zaugg was next after India in the standings in the South African car, “Vulindela”, followed by New Zealand, Malaysia, and France.Portugal’s Albuquerque was pushing hard and on lap nine recorded the fastest lap of the race with a time of one minute 29.072 seconds.Bleekemolen went on to victory as the Netherlands scored its first win in 45 races. Previously, it had won the South African A1GP in Durban in the first season of competition.Portugal’s Albuquerque, in second, and Switzerland’s Jani joined the Dutch driver on the podium, with Ireland’s Carroll passing Monaco’s Piccione on the last lap to take fourth place.‘It all just went amazingly’“It all just went amazingly,” Bleekemolen said after his win. “It was a very hard race for me though, because in the beginning I could feel there was some kind of pull with the fuel pick up. It didn’t cost me any time but I could just feel it coming.“And then after the pit stop the car just stopped and I feared the race would be over, but it started working again,” Bleekemolen said. “I lost about one-and-a-half or two seconds, but luckily we were still able to win.“In the beginning we were really quick, I don’t know why we were so much faster, but everything worked. The car worked really well until the problem came, but then it still was exciting for me.”‘I’m really happy’Portugal’s Albuquerque said: “The team did a very good job and I managed to pass Switzerland. I’m really happy with the fastest lap and second place.”In the main race, Neel Jani raced to victory. It was his ninth win, which lifted him equal with Germany’s Nico Hulkenberg for the most wins by a driver in the history of A1GP racing.Despite starting from fifth on the grid, the Swiss ace comfortably knifed through the field to take a convincing victory by 13 seconds over second placed Felipe Guimaraes, the 17-year-old Brazilian. Clivio Piccione, who had earned Monaco its first ever pole position, completed the podium finishers.Jani enjoyed an incredible start to the Feature race, rocketing from fifth to second by the first corner. Ireland’s Adam Carroll, meanwhile, made contact with Fairuz Fauzy of Malaysia and ended up in the gravel and out of the race.Second contactAs the race took shape, Malaysia and New Zealand, with Earl Bamber at the wheel, battled it out for third place. Fauzy was once again involved in some contact and this time Bamber was sent spinning off the track.Fauzy paid the price when he needed to pit with a suspected slow puncture. By the time he returned to the track, he was in sixteenth position. A few laps later, he made a mandatory stop and changed all four tyres.Fast work by Team Switzerland enabled Jani to leap-frog Piccione and take the lead. Team Australia, however, suffered some misfortune. John Martin had entered the pits in third, but Martin stalled when another car crossed in front of him. The result was that he dropped from third to fifteenth in the standings.South Africa’s Adrian Zaugg had been going well, rising six places from 15th to ninth, but on lap 17 his race was done due to gearbox problems and he coasted quietly into the pits.Daniel Morad of Lebanon passed Germany’s Michael Ammermuller to take over seventh position. The top three, in order, were Switzerland, Monaco, and Brazil.Up to secondBrazil’s Guimaraes then began to haul in Monaco’s Piccione. When Monaco made a mistake on lap 24, he pounced and took over second place.By the time the cars started coming in for a second round of pit stops, Jani had Switzerland in a 10-second lead and another clean stop saw him exit pit lane with a comfortable advantage.Malaysia, realising that Fauzy was out of the running to score a point by finishing in the top 10, sent him out to try to record the fastest lap, for which he could earn a point. Utilising PowerBoost, he clocked one minute 28.306 to claim the point on offer.Jani took the chequered flag for Switzerland, ahead of a delighted Guimares, who recorded Brazil’s best result of the season and become the youngest ever A1GP medal winner. Clivio Piccione finished third, getting Monaco’s its first ever podium place in its debut season.Switzerland’s win and Ireland’s failure to finish the race lifted the Swiss to the top of the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport standings.‘A replay start from Taupo’Afterwards, Jani commented: “It was a little bit of a replay start from Taupo, from fifth to second. I was a bit worried starting from fifth, because I knew the first two turns would be very close and you could get knocked off easily, so my strategy was to just try the outside and it really worked and was a fantastic start.“I then tried to follow Clivio (Piccione) and I struggled a bit. But then we had a great pit stop and I had good pace. I think Monaco had a bit of bad luck in the pit stop so that helped us too. But after it I could really keep up my pace.”Brazil’s Felipe Guimares said: “I am so happy as it’s the first time I have been on the podium. Yesterday I had the big crash in qualifying and I didn’t think that today I would finish on the podium! But I had a great start then during the race the car was good.“It was a bit worrying at the end because the engine was losing power, but we managed to keep going to the finish thankfully. I was pushing hard but not taking any risks and we brought it home in second. I really wanted to do a good job today and I have.”Strange noisesA1 Team South Africa’s Zaugg, who endured a difficult home event, said: “The first laps were not bad at all and we were able to actually get past France as well. But already from lap six onwards I started to hear strange noises in the engine, especially in second gear. And I also then started to feel like a drop in power accelerating in second gear. But I just carried on.“I informed the team but they just told me to carry on. And that’s what I did and eventually I started to get misfires. Eventually on the breaking and changing down to second gear, the engine just went off. I kept rolling and the engine went back on and eventually I tried to continue, but it carried on misfiring, so in the end I just had to give it up.”Taking about racing in front of his home crowds, Zaugg continued: “That really boosted me, especially this morning when I saw the people there and after the drivers’ parade – all the people cheering for me. So I feel really sorry for all of them.“They all came here to see us race and do well and unfortunately we couldn’t finish the race. But I want to just say thanks to all the supporters. We have had a really difficult season so far. But I think we really improved with lots of things this weekend and I hope we can carry on positive from here.”SPRINT RACE RESULTS1.

9 months agoDerby boss Lampard tells Bielsa: That’s bad sportsmanship

first_imgDerby boss Lampard tells Bielsa: That’s bad sportsmanshipby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveDerby boss Frank Lampard says Leeds United have TWICE had spies watch their training this season.Before last night’s win, Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa accepted responsibility for his club spying on Derby’s training session on Thursday, saying that it was his idea.Lampard said: “I don’t think we need to [make a complaint] because he has admitted it. It’s up to the league to see how they deal with it. Obviously it’s not just Derby County. We had someone the day before we lost 4-1 against them. “Now, Leeds can beat you 4-1 they are a fantastic team but we had someone in the bushes that day so twice this season now. The man was asked to leave but it wasn’t followed up like it was this time.”Asked about Bielsa taking responsibility, Lampard said: “Well that’s good, I spoke to him yesterday afternoon myself and he did the same to me so I’m pleased he’s done it again and said that. I think it makes it easier to deal with because at least, on a sportsmans’ level, it’s bad in my opinion. “If we are going to talk about culturally I did it somewhere else and it was fine then that doesn’t work for me because I don’t believe that it is fine on that level. It has disrupted our build-up for this game. “The fortunate thing is that it has disrupted us without really doing anything. People will stand here and say I’m trying to make excuses before the game, I will speak like this after the game as well, win, lose or draw because of what’s happened.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
