Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown March 14, 2017 – Updated on March 15, 2017 Dozens of journalists arrested during protests in Belarus Receive email alerts RSF at the Belarusian border: “The terrorist is the one who jails journalists and intimidates the public” BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentPredatorsImprisonedFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalists Organisation BelarusEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses Judicial harassmentPredatorsImprisonedFreedom of expressionCitizen-journalists May 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News to go further “We welcome opening of criminal investigation in Lithuania in response to our complaint against Lukashenko” RSF says Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the arrests of at least 19 journalists and bloggers while covering a crackdown on demonstrations in cities throughout Belarus since 10 March, and the prison sentences imposed on four of them yesterday and today.RSF regards the police arrests and the jail terms as major violations of media freedom.Two bloggers, Syarhei Pyatrukhin and Dzmitry Harbunou (of Narodny Repartsyor), were sentenced to 15 days in prison in the western city of Brest today for allegedly taking part in an “unauthorized demonstration.” Pyatrukhin was tried in absentia but Harbunou attended the hearing and was detained immediately afterwards.Viktar Andreyeu of Orshatut.by, a local news website in the eastern city of Orsha, and Maksim Filipovich, a blogger in the southeastern city of Homyel, were sentenced to 13 days in prisonyesterday on the same charge.Two other journalists on assignment in Orsha, Halina Abakunchyk of RFE/RL and Katsyaryna Bakhvalava of Belsat TV, were fined 575 rubles (283 euros) and 690 rubles (340 euros) respectively yesterday after being held overnight in police custody.“The Belarusian authorities must put an immediate stop to this targeted and coordinated harassment,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“Journalists have a right to cover events of general interest, regardless of their nature. We urge the European Union to issue a firm reminder that massive media freedom violations of this kind are incompatible with the continuation of a rapprochement between Minsk and Brussels.”Many journalists were arrested before they could begin to cover the protests. They included Syarhei Serabro, Tatsyana Matsveyeva, Ihar Matsveyeu, Adaryya Hurshtyn and Syarhei Hudzilin, who were arrested on their arrival at Orsha station on 12 March and were held for so long that they missed all or most of the demonstration in Orsha.Syarhei Rusetski , Uladzimir Lunyou, Yauhen Meriks, Syarhei Kavalyou, Volha Chaychyts and Andrei Kozel were stopped by traffic police while on their way to cover a demonstration in Rahachou, near Homyel, on 12 March.Unusually large demonstrations have been taking place in Belarus since late February in protest against a new tax on “social parasitism” applicable to anyone working for less than six months a year. President Alexander Lukashenko suspended the tax on 9 March but ordered the interior ministry to take “extremely severe measures” against the protests’ “instigators” and to restore “perfect order.” The police began at once to disperse the protests with much more energy and at least 70 arrests have so far been made.Belarus is ranked 157th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

EU economic output is set to halveOn 27 Jan 2004 in Personnel Today The European Union’s share of global economic output is set to almost halveby 2050 as its workforce shrinks. This is backed by a study released by the World Economic Forum (WEF) andconsultancy Watson Wyatt Worldwide, which claims that the abundance of workersin developing countries such as India and China should help to boost their owneconomic growth. “Economic output is determined by labour force growth and productivityrates,” said Richard Sammans, a managing director at the WEF. “In countries with dramatic labour shortages, the supply of goods andservices may not meet demand and standards of living.” The study, Living happily ever after: the economic implications of agingsocieties, estimates that the number of working-age people in India will riseby 335 million by 2030 – almost as much as the EU and the United States’combined workforce in 2000. Assuming current demographics and economic trends hold, it is claimed thatthe EU’s share of total global output will shrink from the present 18 per centto 10 per cent in 2050. To combat the economic impact of a shrinking workforce, the report adviseddeveloped countries to increase immigration rates, set up more businesses inthe developing world and encourage more women and young people to find a job. Brett Walsh, UK head of human capital at Deloitte, said: “The number ofpensioners in the UK is expected to double over the next 20 years. UKcorporations will need to revise their perspectives on the employment of olderpeople and will need to introduce greater flexibility that encourages them towork longer. “The war for talent will become even more important as the pressure ofskills shortages grows.” By Quentin Reade Previous Article Next Article
Twelve sheathbills, Chionis alba, 12 South Georgian diving petrels, Pelecanoides georgicus, and 5 common diving petrels, P. urinatrix, collected at Bird Island, South Georgia, were examined for helminth parasites. These appear to be the first helminthological examinations of birds from South Georgia. Eleven of the 12 sheathbills were infected with helminth parasites and the pattern of infection of adult male and female birds was similar. Five species of helminths were found in sheathbills, namely Gymnophallus dellciosus, Notocotylus chionis, Paramonostomum signiensis, Lateriporus australis and Corynosoma hammani. Two species, namely Tetrabothrius sp. and Stegophorus heardi, were found in both Pelecanoides georgicus and P. urinatrix. The helminth parasites of whales and seals in the Antarctic and Subantarctic have been extensively studied, while in comparison those of birds from these regions have been neglected. As far as we are aware there are no previous reports on helminth parasites from the sheathbill, Chionis alba (Gmelin), the South Georgian diving petrel, Pelecanoides georgicus (Murphy and Harper), and the common diving petrel, P. urinatrix (Gmelin), from South Georgia.
