My mum and dad for their support and driving me everywhere. My school coaches for giving me the confidence to run with the ball and be able to play.Also Ally Donaldson and Ian Monaghan, who I had last year with the U18s. They were really positive and gave the team confidence. We won our three matches.What have you learnt training with the senior Edinburgh squad? It’s been a great experience. My core skills have improved a lot because we do a lot of 15 v 15. And my contact work because I’m going up against bigger guys. That’s given me a lot of confidence.What are your goals going forward? Hopefully I get picked for the Junior World Cup, where we have a tough pool of New Zealand, South Africa and Georgia. That should be a great experience.Obviously there will be boys away with Scotland (at the start of next season), so it would be great if I can get Edinburgh game time then.What do you do away from rugby? This season I wanted to just focus on rugby, but I’ve applied to do history at uni next year. I’d like to do it full-time if I could. I’ll have discussions with the uni about what’s manageable.RW VERDICT: The teenager was one of the bright lights in a disappointing U20 Six Nations for the Scots. He became the first player born this century to represent Edinburgh, in a pre-season friendly against Bath, and recently made his Pro14 bow v Benetton.

Rev. Todd Ousley, bishop for the Office of Pastoral Development, testifies at General Convention before the Committee on Churchwide Leadership on Resolution A147.[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] The Committee on Churchwide Leadership is grappling with a host of resolutions, all of which are related in some way to the discernment, election and consecration of bishops, as well as issues surrounding leadership impairment due to alcohol and substance misuse and behavioral addictions. In the life of the church, these two topics go hand in hand.“We cannot look at these issues in isolation they are so connected,” said the Rt. Rev. Todd Ousley, bishop for the Office of Pastoral Development.The Commission on Impairment and Leadership, which refers to intervention, evaluation and possible re-entry or action needed related to various forms of leadership impairment, has submitted D057, D058 and D059. Additional resolutions ask for canonical amendments. This commission of Executive Council also published the Report of the Commission on Impairment and Leadership in 2017.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.The Task Force on the Episcopacy, which reviewed the existing process and made recommendations to improve the path to the episcopacy, increase diversity in the House of Bishops, and offer support to the Office of Pastoral Development in its work with dioceses, advanced 34 resolutions. Those pertaining to the discernment of and evaluation for the episcopacy are A145, A146, A147 and A148. The task force’s Blue Book report begins on page 678.Where the two groups intersect is in the areas of physical and mental health, and substance abuse and addiction. Impairment and Leadership considered this from the perspective of awareness training and crisis intervention, and Task Force on Episcopacy through screening, privacy and reporting.How to help the church elect bishops who will have successful episcopates was part of the task force’s work, Katie Sherrod of Fort Worth explained, noting that former Maryland Bishop Suffragan Heather Cook’s “shadow obviously loomed large over the resolution that put us into existence.” Cook killed bicyclist Thomas Palermo in December 2014 as she was driving and texting while drunk. She had been previously arrested in 2010 on an impaired-driving charge. Cook disclosed the arrest to diocesan leaders during the bishop suffragan search process, according to a diocesan statement released after the Dec. 27 accident, but the entire convention that elected Cook on May 2, 2014, was not told about it.Deputy Scott Slater of Maryland testified on July 5 before the Committee on Churchwide Leadership in support of Resolution A147, to create a Pilot Board for Episcopal Transitions. From Slater’s experience as someone who has a history of addiction, the church lacks procedures for vetting someone thoroughly. This was the case in Maryland, and he experienced it again as a recent candidate for bishop elsewhere.“I was asked a series of 22 questions and any ‘yes’ answer causes the search or standing committee of the diocese to dig deeper. I’m not sure of the resources available to Transition Consultants when faced with a ‘yes’ answer to one of the 22 questions. In my recent experience, they did not seem to have adequate resources and standards in vetting,” Slater said. “I found myself having to educate the standing committee who was vetting me on how to vet me because of that ‘yes’ answer.”Slater sees both training transition consultants and making public the resources they use to aid dioceses throughout the transition process important steps to improving the bishop election process.Describing the process of the 22 questions on the Behavioral Study Questionnaire, a clinical interview of a candidate for bishop, Ousley said, “Answers are part of a ‘decision tree’ where answers can lead to other questions in the clinical assessment. The assessment has a medical and a psychiatric component. This process is specific to potential bishops.” He added that some dioceses use this or a similar process for clergy as well.After the assessment, the Office of Pastoral Development receives the report from the medical doctor and a certificate from the psychiatrist. If there are no yellow or red flags, then the respective certificates – not the reports – are shared with the presiding bishop and the diocese’s Standing Committee president. The certificates state that there is nothing in the assessment to prevent the person from functioning as bishop. If something is flagged in either report, then the information is shared with the presiding bishop and the president of the Standing Committee of the diocese.It is highly recommended by the OPD that dioceses have the medical and psychological evaluations done before the candidate is put on the slate. The office began recommending that practice in July 2017. The common practice had been to do these evaluations post-election.Awareness. Intervention. Consistency. Training. Transparency. Leadership. Separately, they are important to the work of the church. Brought together, the work of the church has a much broader impact.– Sharon Tillman is a freelance writer and a member of the ENS General Convention reporting team.

The 20 people who died in the Oct. 6 tragic crash of a supersized limousine in Schoharie, N.Y., were not the first victims of the limousine company owner Shahed Hussain.Hussain, responsible for the faulty operation of the limousine, had been convicted in a Department of Motor Vehicles scam in 2001. To avoid prosecution and the prospect of deportation to Pakistan, where he faced a murder charge, Hussain convinced the FBI to take him on as an informant.For several years, Hussain recorded conversations at the DMV for the FBI, incriminating friends and co-workers. Between 2004 and 2013, he was paid $96,000 of taxpayers’ money for his role in three separate entrapments of Muslim citizens and destruction of their communities. Several innocent men are now serving life sentences as a result of Hussain’s extremely questionable testimony.The Albany-based Muslim Solidarity Committee, the national Project SALAM (Support and Legal Advocacy for Muslims) and the National Coalition to Protect Civil Freedoms issued a joint press release on Oct. 9 exposing Hussain’s betrayal of Muslim communities.The statement reads in part: “Our grief for the victims of the tragedy is mixed with our grief for the many victims of FBI stings involving the owner of the limousine company, Shahed Hussain … well known from his role as an FBI informant in three persecutions of Muslim citizens. … The FBI rewarded Hussain for his efforts by paying him handsomely, money he then used to start several businesses, including a motel and Prestige Limousine, whose limousine crashed in Schoharie.”The three cases referenced in the statement were the Aref-Hossain sting case in Albany, N.Y., in 2004–2006; the Newburgh Four sting case in Newburgh, N.Y., in 2009–2010; and the Khalifa Al-Akili sting case in Pittsburgh, Pa., in 2012–2013. These have been the subject of three documentaries — “Waiting for Mercy,” “The Newburgh Sting” and the Emmy-winning “(T)error.”In all three cases, Hussain set up the “plots” and put these into motion by manipulating the men he was targeting.Hussain under FBI protection?Many news sources are focusing on the fact that the limousine, owned by Hussain’s company, repeatedly failed several New York state safety inspections, including a Sept. 4 test showing brake system malfunction, among other issues.It is probable that brake failure led to the limousine speeding through an intersection and crashing into an embankment, killing the driver, all 17 passengers on board and two nearby pedestrians.The overriding question is why were state, county and local officials looking the other way when it came to owner Shahed Hussain? Why was Hussain’s Prestige Limousines allowed to rent out vehicles that failed inspections repeatedly? Why was his company allowed to function with drivers who were not licensed to operate these vehicles?Prestige Limousines and Crest Inn, both owned by Hussain, had been the subject of frequent complaints and legal violations. Since 1997, Hussain had also been involved in dozens of lawsuits in Albany County.Throughout, the FBI supported him, ignoring the potential dangers. After the fact, on Oct. 8, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said the limousine company was under investigation and could no longer operate.But on Oct. 10, when police arrested Hussain’s son Nauman in connection with the limo crash, the New York State Police superintendent stated the son bore “sole responsibility.“ No mention was made of Shahed Hussain, the company owner. (New York Times 10/10/18)Shahed Hussain, apparently still under FBI protection, was allowed to leave the U.S. immediately following the crash. He is reported to be now in either Pakistan or Dubai, leaving his son and his company’s workers to take the heat.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Help by sharing this information to go further MyanmarAsia – Pacific MyanmarAsia – Pacific US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture News News Receive email alerts Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar Follow the news on Myanmar With just two months to go to the general elections that the military government plans to hold on 7 November, there are still no grounds for thinking that the Burmese and foreign media will be able to cover the campaign and polling freely. Prior censorship remains in effect and that rules out any possibility of a democratic election. Without press freedom, the election will just be a sham.Burma has more than 150 privately-owned newspapers and magazines but they are all subject to pre-publication censorship by the Press Scrutiny and Registration Division, commonly known as the Press Scrutiny Board, which is run by a military officer. This kind of censorship is virtually unique in the world and prevents the emergence of any editorial independence.The international media that broadcast in Burmese – BBC, RFA, VOA and DVB – have never been allowed to work freely inside the country and have repeatedly been attacked by the military government. Very few visas are issued to foreign reporters.“Our hands are tied,” a Rangoon-based journalist told Reporters Without Borders. The run-up to the elections – the results of which have already been decided, according to the main opposition party – has been accompanied by an increase in censorship.The exile magazine Irrawaddy quoted the editor of a Burmese publication as saying: “Three officials normally check our newspaper at the Press Scrutiny Board but, with the elections coming up, each line is now read and re-read by a dozen officials.” He added that additional staff began being assigned to the Press Scrutiny Board in May.The latest example of censorship is a one-week suspension of the weekly Modern Times for changing the headline of its weather forecast without permission. A well-known forecaster’s article about the possibility of heavy rain in September was given the headline “Will it come in September?” The censors suspected an allusion to the 2007 Saffron Revolution.The magazine The Voice was suspended for two weeks in July because of an article by Nay Win Maung, a political analyst who writes under the name of Aung Htut, about the powers and prerogatives that the constitution will give the next president. The suspension was surprising because The Voice supports the military government, in particular Maj. Gen. Htay Oo, one of the most influential ministers.Nay Myo Wei, the leader of an opposition party expected to take part in election, complained in July that an interview he gave to the weekly Pyithu Khit was suppressed by the censors.A Burmese journalist explained that the Press Scrutiny Board does not issue written suspension orders but just gives verbal instructions to suspend publication temporarily.At the same time, the police are continuing to prevent the circulation of any publications that support the opposition. In July, for example, a teenager was arrested in Rangoon in possession of books written by Aung San Suu Kyi, the head of the opposition National League for Democracy, and Win Tin, a veteran journalist who is a member of the NLD leadership.Within the restrictions imposed by the Press Scrutiny Board, a few publications, the most pro-government ones, have managed to provide some coverage of the preparations for the elections. The coverage is above all limited to the electoral manoeuvring of the generals in the government and the registration of political parties.The authorities also announced in July that the publication of propaganda articles prepared by government writers would be optional. “But the media will have to publish them all the same if the request comes from the highest authorities,” a Press Scrutiny Board official told the New Delhi-based Mizzima News.The government press, especially The New Light of Myanmar (http://www.myanmar.com/newspaper/nlm/index.html), has meanwhile been publishing pages and pages of information about the preparations being made by the military for the elections.Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association already issued a statement in March saying that, as things stood, the elections being organised by the military government would not be credible because of the lack of media freedom (http://en.rsf.org/burma-no-credible-elections-without-26-03-2010,36847.html).A “censors’ paradise,” Burma is ranked 171st out of 175 countries in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The 2014 Reporters Without Borders – TV5Monde Prize for Press Freedom has been awarded to Mexican journalist Sanjuana Martínez, Liberian newspaper FrontPage Africa and Saudi blogger Raef Badawi. The winners’ names were announced at a ceremony this evening in Strasbourg. Help by sharing this information News RSF_en The 2014 “Journalist of the Year,” Sanjuana Martínez, is a freelance contributor to the Mexico City-based daily La Jornada who has been harassed and threatened because of her commitment to defending mistreated women and children.The winner in the “media” category, Liberia’s Frontpage Africa, has proved that quality investigative journalism is possible despite government intimidation. The “netizen” category winner, Saudi blogger and human rights activist Raef Badawi, has paid with his freedom for his fight for the truth.Awarded annually for the past 23 years and in partnership with TV5Monde since 2011, this prize aims to encourage, support and increase awareness of journalists, media and netizens that have made a notable contribution to the defence or promotion of freedom.Held for the second year running at the World Forum for Democracy in Strasbourg, the award ceremony was attended by Reporters Without Borders (RSF) secretary-general Christophe Deloire, RSF board chair Alain Le Gouguec, TV5Monde news director Pascal Guimier, Strasbourg mayor Roland Ries and a representative of the Council of Europe.“This year’s press freedom prize jury included such prestigious figures as Nobel Peace Laureate Shirin Ebadi, Italian investigative journalist Roberto Saviano, and Michèle Montas, a former Haitian journalist who was Ban Ki-Moon’s spokesperson,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“With violence against journalists reaching a hitherto unimaginable level of horror and scale this year, it is vital that we pay tribute to journalists, news media and netizens who have demonstrated a heroism of the kind that benefits millions of people.” “As a French-language TV channel that projects the French-speaking world’s universal values in the 200 countries where we have a presence, TV5Monde’s reasons for being involved with Reporters Without Borders are obvious,” Pascal Guimier said.“We are a loyal supporter of this prize because we want to demonstrate our commitment to those who constantly strive, sometimes at the cost of their lives, to cover this world in turmoil, this world beset by wars that pose an ever-growing threat to democracy and media freedom.”Journalist of the Year Sanjuana Martínez received death threats after writing a book about sexual abuse by members of Mexico’s Catholic clergy. As well as her newspaper reporting, she has also written books about other alleged Catholic Church scandals, Mexican drug trafficking and immigration into the United States.The recipient of many national journalism prizes, she was included in the US magazine Forbes’ September 2013 list of the country’s 50 most influential women. Mexico is the western hemisphere’s deadliest country for journalists, with more than 80 murdered since 2000 in a clear or probable connection with their work.Frontpage Africa has distinguished itself for many years with rigorous investigative journalism that has shed light on many cases of corruption and nepotism within Liberia’s ruling elite. Its readiness to tackle taboo subjects and the reliability of its reporting, which is recognized internationally, have made it one of the main sources of information for the Liberian diaspora.Its coverage of Liberia’s ongoing Ebola epidemic is a classic example of a country where journalists have to fight to work. Because it makes waves, the government resorts to all possible means to prevent it from publishing and, in 2013, it had to close for three months while its editor, Rodney Sieh, was in prison. Liberia is ranked 80th out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Aged 32, Saudi blogger and human rights activist Raef Badawi helped to create the Liberal Saudi Network website as a forum for discussing political, religious and social issues in Saudi Arabia. It was because of the site, which the authorities have closed, that he was arrested in June 2012 for violating article 6 of a cyber-crime law banning content that “undermines public order, religious values, public decency or privacy.”In July 2013, a court sentenced him to seven years in prison and 600 lashes on charges of violating Islamic values and spreading liberal ideas. In an appeal hearing in May 2014 that was marked by irregularities, the sentence was increased to 10 years in prison, 1,000 lashes and a fine of 1 million riyals (about 200,000 euros) for “insulting Islam.” This was upheld by a Riyadh appeal court in September. Saudi Arabia is ranked 164th out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.Reporters Without Borders and TV5Monde also pay tribute to this year’s other nominees:- In the “journalist” category: Sarmad Al-Ta’ I (Iraq), Ilya Azar (Russia), Tomislav Kezarovski (Macedonia), Bheki Makhubu (Swaziland), Hamid Mir (Pakistan) and James Risen (United States).- In the “media” category: Malaysiakini (Malaysia), Radio Puca Opalaca (Honduras) and Turan (Azerbaijan).- In the “netizen” category: Ilham Tohti (China), Emrah Uçar on behalf of the Ötekilerin Postasi website (Turkey) and Zone 9 (Ethiopia).
