The letters, sent by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, are intended to encourage the executives to reach a settlement under directors’ and officers’ liability insurance. They are seen as a precursor to a potential lawsuit, which could be brought within the next 30 days, according to reports. Washington Mutual collapsed in September 2008. Its assets were sold to JP Morgan by the FDIC acting as receiver for $1.8bn.

first_imgLATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS In control: Wales scrum-half Mike Phillips releases the ball as Wales ran out comfortable winners 9-26 winners in RomeBy Owain JonesIn a nutshellWALES TRAVELLED to Rome with a fragile confidence but they will have returned from their Italian sojourn with more than a little gladiatorial swagger about them. In dank, wet conditions, they had the better of the opening 40 minutes yet had only a three-point advantage to show for it at the break, thanks to Leigh Halfpenny’s trusty boot. The second-half started with Italy almost gaining a crucial score after the Welsh backs treated the ball like a hot plate but Italy failed to capitalise. Within minutes they’d driven into Italian territory and after a chip and collect from Dan Biggar. At the ruck, a dink over the top from Mike Phillips was not picked up by the Italian defence and Jonathan Davies picked up to dot down.With a ten point gap, Italy stepped up the pressure but with constant handling errors ruined any chance of building momentum. On 61 minutes, Wales drove into the Italian half and created an attacking platform, it was left to Dan Biggar to release Alex Cuthbert with a clever pass to score his second try of the tournament. With another unerring Halfpenny penalty and a 26-9 lead Wales defended well, failing to concede a try for a second successive game. The Italian job had been completed. Next stop Murrayfield.Touch down: Jonathan Davies scores first tryKey momentMinutes after escaping a potentially match-defining score from Italy, Wales gained some field position and Dan Biggar lofted a high ball, bravely retrieving it. From the resulting ruck, Mike Phillips again lofted the ball over the Italian defence. Kris Burton and Edoardo Gori failed to deal with a wickedly bouncing ball and Jonathan Davies was quickest to react, gathering and dropping over the line unopposed. After Halfpenny slotted the conversion, Wales finally had the safety gap they needed to start building a lead.Star man – Dan BiggarThirteen may be unlucky for some but this was a coming of age performance from the Ospreys pivot on his 13th Wales appearance. His chip in creating the winning try for George North in Paris, had helped a hitherto tentative Biggar settle in a Wales shirt and he put in a much improved performance in Rome. Steady under the high ball, twice taking difficult balls to return with interest, he was integral to Wales’ first try and second try. He also had no problem taking the ball and driving into defenders and threw himself into tackles. It was a performance that showed the boy from Gorseinon was far more than just a points machine. Bravissimo, Dan.Lions watchHotGethin JenkinsStaying at home in Wales seems to suit the returning Cardiff Blue who has improved steadily throughout the Championship with regular rugby. In Italy, he was aggressive in the tackle, competitive in the tight and looked highly motivated. Even though he’s been written off by many, with 97 caps, you’d wager he fancies a third Lions tour rather than winning his 100th cap out in Japan. Unlucky to pick up a calf-injury late-on.Toby FaletauWhile there were no show stopping line-breaks, Faletau always offers himself for contact, driving in tight exchanges and putting in a huge amount of the donkey work – he again reached double-figures for tackles. Faletau is the antithesis of a showboating No 8 but is consummate team-man and a likely tourist.Committment: Justin Tipuric tries to charge down BurtonCold Andrew CoombsThe Newport Gwent Dragon has been a splendid addition to the Wales squad, putting in two tremendous shifts against Ireland and France, but here he was less influential in the loose and missed the odd tackle. He was replaced by the experienced Alun-Wyn Jones after 52 minutes.Jamie RobertsThe burly No 12 didn’t do anything wrong but for a player of his stature and experience, he had a quiet game and was unable to influence play. He will want a strong finish to the tournamentStatisticsItaly ran 303 metres with the ball compared to 224 metres from WalesItaly made 80 tackles, missing eight with a success rate of 91%, Wales made 132 tackles, missing seven, with a 95% success rateWales’ top tacklers were Ryan Jones with 16, Justin Tipuric with 15 and Toby Faletau with 12. Alessandro Zanni was Italy’s only tackler in double-figures with 13.Italy’s top ball-carrier was Giovanbattista Venditti with 63 metres carried, followed closely by Andrea Masi with 56.

first_imgThursday Oct 3, 2013 The Best Tries in the Top 14 – All from the last Six Rounds There have been some outstanding tries scored in the Top 14 lately, with both the best of individual efforts and team tries being celebrated in Canal Plus’ compilations of the Top Ten Tries. Today we’ve got no less than six for you, a total of sixty tries for you.With so much on around the world of late, including Test rugby in the Rugby Championship, it’s been a bit of a challenge to get everything posted as it happens. The French Top 14 Top 10 tries in particular are something that, although they were queued up to post, were neglected a bit.It is a popular feature though so rather than not share them at all, today we’ve pumped a whole lot into one post so that you have the option of watching them all, a few randomly, or skipping ahead to the number one tries as we suspect you might do. Either way, sixty great tries is good value.In the latest round, Round 7, the number one try went to Metuisela Talebula and his superb effort against Racing Metro. Good power, perfectly balanced and with quick thinking, it’s a fantastic finish.There are many other great tries but have a look yourself by using the page numbers under the video, the  links below, or just click ‘View All’, which will place them all on one page.

Marchers then headed out on a two-week journey to the Niagara Falls Air Reserve Station.Soldiers at both bases operate MQ9 Reaper drones that drop “Hellfire” bombs on locations in Afghanistan. The New York Air National Guard’s 174th Attack Wing is stationed in Syracuse and the Guard’s 107th Air Wing in Niagara Falls, N.Y.Drones are big business in central and upstate New York. Hancock Air Base opened a new $3.5 million drone training facility in May. The Central New York Regional Economic Development Council recently announced plans for a $250 million investment to make “Central New York a global center for the development of unmanned aerial and ground systems” — in other words, drones and drone flight technology. (Syracuse Post-Standard, Oct. 6)Murderous imperialist U.S. wars are increasingly “normalized” through use of remotely flown drones. The 107th’s commander, Col. John J. Higgins, said in an interview: “You can drop off the kids in the morning, fly a mission wherever they need you, maybe even pull a trigger. And 10 hours later, you’re done and you go pick up the kids.” (Buffalo News, Oct. 10)Organizers emphasize the importance of the Walk, as the U.S. Department of Defense plans to up its drone use by 50 percent in the next four years. Drones are now the “backup” to Afghan forces on the ground in place of U.S. soldiers.The Walk was organized by the Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones and End the Wars. Since 2010, the coalition has battled the killing inflicted by U.S. drone warfare, using civil disobedience arrests and creative mass protests. The group has run television ads urging Army Reserve drone operators to refuse to commit war crimes. ( Walk will include more than a dozen stops, from small towns to big cities. A forum in Rochester will be on “Drones, Black Lives Matter, the European Refugee Crisis: What Do They Have in Common?”last_img read more

first_imgJournalist in Danger (JED) in Democratic Republic of Congo Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders has for several years been providing financial support to Journalist in Danger (JED), an independent press freedom organisation that was created by a group of Congolese journalists in Kinshasa. Reporters Without Borders pays the rent of its office and some of its other operating costs. Development projects in Iraq- In March 2006, three years after the start of the war in Iraq, Reporters Without Borders announced the creation of a support fund for the families of journalists killed in Iraq. The first 20 grants were allocated in cooperation with the Union of Iraqi Journalists during a trip to Kurdistan from 2 to 6 April, during which the families of slain journalists were visited. Part of these support funds were used to provide appropriate medical treatment to journalists injured in bombings, shootings or abductions. During a visit to Baghdad in May 2007, a Reporters Without Borders delegation provided financial assistance to the families of 57 journalists killed in other parts of Iraq. – The annual Reporters Without Borders – Fondation de France prize in the “Defender of Press Freedom” category was awarded on 5 December 2007 to the Iraqi Journalistic Freedoms Observatory (JFO) for its vital work in reporting the many acts of violence against journalists in Iraq. The award includes 2,500 euros in prize money.The JFO was created in 2004 in response to the fact that many journalists were being imprisoned and mistreated by the Iraqi security forces. Mostly victims of police violence themselves, the founding members decided to join forces in order to help imprisoned journalists. In just a few years, it has become one of the most reliable sources of information about press freedom violations in Iraq. Reporters Without Borders establishes specific and long-term assistance projects aimed at ensuring the survival and development of local news media and organisations that defend free expression.Support for local pressThe Journal des journaux in Chad On 27 March 2008, Reporters Without Borders provided financial support for the publication in N’Djamena of a Journal des Journaux (“Newspaper of Newspapers”), a one-off issue combining most of Chad’s independent weeklies. Put together by journalists from six media that are currently not operating (N’Djamena Hebdo, Le Temps, Notre Temps, l’Observateur, Le Miroir and radio FM-Liberté), the 12-page issue included a plea for press freedom in Chad, and in particular, for the repeal of a press law adopted by decree on 20 February while a state of emergency was in force. _ Kabul Weekly in Afghanistan Reporters Without Borders provided a sizable sum of financial support in 2007 to Kabul Weekly, an, independent Afghan newspaper run by journalist Faheem Dashty, in order to enable it to resume publishing. Created in 1993 and relaunched a few weeks after the fall on the Taliban in January 2002, it stopped publishing in November 2006 because of financial difficulties due above all to the lack of advertising revenue. With the aid provided, the newspaper was able to acquire new equipment and recruit more staff, and resumed publishing on 16 May 2007._ Support for press freedom organisations June 16, 2008 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Development projects Organisation News RSF_en last_img read more

first_img TajikistanEurope – Central Asia #CollateralFreedom: RSF unblocks eight sites censored during pandemic News Follow the news on Tajikistan RSF_en August 25, 2020 Find out more News Many Internet users in Tajikistan have been unable to access Google’s search engine and other Google services such as Gmail since yesterday. The problem is being reported above all by users of the Tcell and Megafon mobile Internet services. And most people have been unable to access the Google-owned video-sharing site YouTube since 10 June.According to the independent news website Asia Plus, the same goes for the news agency Tojnews website. The authorities have so far denied any involvement although they often censor critical news websites.“Arbitrarily restricting access to such sites constitutes a grave violation of Tajik citizens’ right to information,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “As the authorities usually deny any responsibility when they order the blocking of websites, their latest denials are not a sufficient response. And anyway, it is their job to guarantee the continuity of Internet access in Tajikistan.”Bihr added: “We call for an urgent explanation by the head of the government telecommunications service, Beg Sabur, and we ask him to do what is necessary to restore access to the blocked sites without delay. The government must refrain from putting any pressure on Internet Service Providers.”Tcell said Gmail’s inaccessibility was an indirect result of the blocking of YouTube. After the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe yesterday called on the government to do everything in its power to restore access to YouTube, the telecommunications service denied any involvement in the blocking and suggested that it was due to “technical problems.” The intermittent blocking of social networks and independent news sites has become frequent in the past two years in Tajikistan. Facebook, Twitter and Vkontakte have all suffered repeatedly, as have the Tajik services of the BBC and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, the news agencies Asia Plus, Ferghana and RIA Novosti, and the news sites and The last blocking of YouTube was shortly before the November presidential election and lasted several months.The blocking usually follows the posting of content that is particularly critical of President Emomali Rakhmon’s autocratic government. At first, the authorities usually deny any involvement, but most of the ISPs have in the past acknowledged receiving blocking instructions from the telecommunications service, often in the form of an SMS.Photos of anti-government graffiti on the streets of the capital appeared in Facebook on 4 June. The same day, the independent news website Ozodagon reported that a Facebook user had been arrested for “insulting the president.”Tajikistan is ranked 115th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

The money-making sports channel is a key source of revenue for the network.At a news conference yesterday, PEMRA’s acting chairman, Abdul Jabba, blamed the fact that Geo Super has its headquarters in nearby Dubai. He said Geo Super was registered as an international channel, not a national channel, and therefore “does not have rights to transmit from Pakistan.” Geo Super also “does not have the right to cover any event in Pakistan,” he added.Geo News has often been the target of government harassment and intimidation in the past because of its critical stance.
