Brazil’s President Bolsonaro insults and threatens TV Globo

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro’s dangerous use of threats, insults and hate speech against TV Globo in response to a report on its main evening news programme yesterday mentioning his name in connection with last year’s murder of a Rio de Janeiro councilwoman. April 15, 2021 Find out more During a 24-minute tirade live-streamed on Facebook, he said: “The journalism you do is rotten, corrupt and immoral. You’re useless! You’re useless! You just publish lies.” He went on to threaten TV Globo with non-renewal of its broadcasting licence in 2022 and, on Twitter, he later posted a photo of a sewer superimposed on the TV channel’s logo. BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalists Freedom of expressionPredatorsViolence Reports News RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America The report on TV Globo’s “Jornal Nacional,” Brazil’s most popular nightly TV news programme, said President Bolsonaro’s name had been mentioned by one of the witnesses in the investigation into the March 2018 murder of Marielle Franco, a well-known human rights and LGBT activist as well as member of the Rio de Janeiro city council. Source: Facebook October 30, 2019 Brazil’s President Bolsonaro insults and threatens TV Globo This video was quickly deleted from his account and he issued an apology, recognizing that he had “made a mistake.” “President Jair Bolsonaro’s ‘mistakes’ and statements will have far-reaching consequences,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America desk. “By insulting and humiliating some of Brazil’s most important media, the country’s highest authority is feeding and sustaining a climate of hatred and mistrust towards Brazilian journalism. These repeated attacks are very worrying and Bolsonaro’s threats not to renew TV Globo’s broadcast frequencies in 2022 are extremely serious. They amount to direct censorship.” Bolsonaro, who is currently on a long tour of Asia and the Middle East, reacted furiously on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, insisting on his innocence and accusing TV Globo of “betraying” and “destroying” the country. “Despicable bastards, you are not patriots”, he said. In reaction to the president’s insults, the Globo media group issued a statement saying it did “serious and responsible journalism” and that it had broadcast the report “on the basis of an official witness statement” that contradicted the investigation’s initial findings.

HR distrusts home workers because of lack of checks

first_img Comments are closed. Nearly half of HR directors don’t trust their staff to perform effectivelyif they are working from home reveals research. The survey of nearly 300 HR directors at companies in the UK, France,Germany and the Netherlands shows 45 per cent of respondents are concernedabout their employees’ self-discipline to work effectively while out of theoffice. The study by global consultants LogicaCMG suggests this stems from the factthat 46 per cent of employers have no way of effectively monitoring mobileworkers. The survey also reveals that most company policies on mobile working areinadequate. In the UK, 62 per cent of training for mobile workers focuses on use of thetechnology, while just 20 per cent is devoted to effective communication techniquesand 16 per cent to time management. Most of the companies that encourage mobile working rely on rudimentary waysof monitoring staff performance such as logging mobile phone or internet useand written reports to line managers. Paul Barker, international solutions director at LogicaCMG, said employerswould have to become better at managing homeworkers as the demands for flexibleworking increase. www.logicacmg.com HR distrusts home workers because of lack of checksOn 11 Feb 2003 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.

DSC students encouraged to embrace learning and to take advantage of opportunities.

first_img Share EducationLocalNewsTertiary DSC students encouraged to embrace learning and to take advantage of opportunities. by: – August 30, 2011 Tweet Hon. Minister Mr. Kelver DArrouxHonourable Kelver Darroux explained to the new students that the opportunity to attend a tertiary institution should be embraced as there are many other students who cannot attend college due to unfortunate circumstances.“You should take advantage of the opportunity that the Dominica State College is making towards your advancement. I tell you because there are a number of students like yourself, who would have wished to have been given the opportunity, but unfortunately they are not here this morning. It’s not because it’s their fault but some simply because of the circumstances they have come a crossed today, whether financially or whether they have not been raised in a home that has given them the foundation to make the right choices in life.”Mr Darroux also explained that he wants to challenge our young people, “in today’s time you should not settle for the average. We do not explore our full potential and the capacity that our brain is able to work and generate we do not make ample use of it. So we have to challenge ourselves more as young people, we have to go out and do research, find out things for ourselves and empower and educate ourselves.Former students of the Dominica State College who volunteered to assist with the orientation programme reminded the students of the need for great organization and preparation and to avoid procrastinating as this can create major set backs.The volunteers further advised the students to seek help, you are new and not everything may come right away with the transition of high school to college. Your education is your responsibility and you have to set your goals to what you want to do and you need to be your own person, if you fail to plan you plan to fail.As part of the orientation, the Heads of Faculty Departments were also introduced to the students and they are as follows;Mr. Rawl Leslie, Dean Faculty of Applied Arts & TechnologyMs. Josephine Lewis, Dean Faculty of Arts and ScienceMrs. Mary Vidal, Dean Faculty of EducationMrs. Denise Edwards, Dean Faculty of Health ServicesMrs. Jacqueline Royer, Director of Learning ResourcesMr. Edgar Hunter, Director of Student Support ServicesMr. Henry Volney, Director of Admissions & Financial AidMrs. Catherine Abraham, BursarMr. Ashley Massicotte, RegistrarDr. Helen Francis-Steadman PhD, Vice PresidentDr. Donald Peters, PresidentDominica Vibes News 69 Views   one comment President of The Dominica State College – Dr. Donald Peters PhDPresident of the DSC Dr. Peters in addressing the opening ceremony encouraged the students to embrace learning.“Today you join millions of students all over the world, and today the world is smaller. You will require a college degree in order to work. Our education is one that runs smoother and the degree credits can be transferred to anywhere in the world, similarly students in other countries may also work in Dominica. In order to survive you have to pay attention to what is in front of you, and you must embrace learning.”Dr Peters also advised the students to organize their time and work as organization is the key and the responsibility for their success lies in their hands.

Serie A: Sarri set for Napoli return, Rome prepares for fiery derby

first_img Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata is desperate to end his three-match goal drought since returning from injury. (Sarri set for emotional Napoli return, Rome prepares for fiery derby) – https://t.co/cCKh3oRHZQJuventus’ Italian c …KonnyNews App – pic.twitter.com/09HkidO9vx— KonnyNews (@KonnyNews) January 23, 2020 Read Also:Inter Milan reveal what is delaying Victor Moses’ announcement -report The 28-year-old scored six league goals in seven games before being sidelined for three months with a thigh injury. It is the former Sampdoria forward’s longest stretch without scoring since his first goal for Atalanta back in November 2018. Key stats 50 – Atalanta’s league goals scored in 20 games 27 – Napoli’s points deficit to Juventus 23 – Ciro Immobile’s league goals for Lazio this season 12 – Ronaldo’s goals in last eight games 3 – Maurizio Sarri’s seasons as Napoli coach Fixtures (all times GMT) Friday Brescia v AC Milan (1945) Saturday SPAL v Bologna (1400), Fiorentina v Genoa (1700), Torino v Atalanta (1945) Sunday Inter Milan v Cagliari (1130), Hellas Verona v Lecce, Parma v Udinese, Sampdoria v Sassuolo (1400), Roma v Lazio (1700), Napoli v Juventus (1945) FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Juventus coach Maurizio Sarri said he expects an emotional return to his former club Napoli on Sunday as Lazio and Roma prepare for a derby clash in Serie A after both capital-city sides exited the Italian Cup during the week. Maurizio Sarri returns to Napoli, the club he coached for three seasons until 2018 Sarri missed Juventus’ home game against Napoli with pneumonia in August and Sunday’s game at the Stadio San Paolo will be his first since leaving the club in 2018 before his move to Chelsea. “It will be a tremendously difficult game, emotionally it will be particularly special. My relationship with Naples and above all the city was strong,” said Sarri, after Juve reached the Italian Cup semi-finals with a 3-1 win over Roma on Wednesday. Juventus are top of the league with a four-point lead on second-placed Inter Milan, but Napoli – Serie A runners-up in the past two seasons – are struggling in 11th position, 14 points off the Champions League places. “We must not look at their position in the table,” Sarri continued. “They have a strong team. They are going through a difficult time but have good players. “There are three points at stake.” Napoli lost 4-3 in the reverse fixture this season. But the team are a shadow of the eye-catching side Sarri left in May 2018 to be replaced by Carlos Ancelotti. Ancelotti helped the team maintain their runners-up position last campaign but was replaced at the troubled side by Gennaro Gattuso last month. Gattuso has lost four of his five Serie A games in charge and the club have not won at home in the league since October 19. Duvan Zapata scored 23 goals last season to lift Atalanta into the Champions League for the first time Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 12 goals in his last eight gamesBut they have been boosted by booking their ticket to the Italian Cup semi-finals with a 1-0 win over in-form Lazio this week. “We played with hunger, character and the right spirit, showing real grit, something we had been lacking up till now,” said Gattuso. “Now of course we need to keep it up, to climb back up the table.” Second-placed Inter Milan are at home against sixth-placed Cagliari this weekend, after their title bid was stalled with back-to-back draws. Lazio – on a club record 11-match league winning streak – are third, six points behind Juventus with a game in hand, and two adrift of Inter ahead of the Rome derby. Paulo Fonseca’s Roma are seven points behind their city rivals in the final Champions League berth. The teams played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture in September, and last season had a win each. Simone Inzaghi’s Lazio are pushing for a first Scudetto since 2000, after crashing out of the Italian Cup, which they won last season. Flagging Atalanta, in fifth, travel to Torino, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s eighth-placed AC Milan visit Brescia on Friday looking to edge closer to the Europa League places. Brescia striker Mario Balotelli will miss the game against his former club after being handed a two-match ban for arguing with the referee last weekend.
