This is the third whistleblower the Trump administration has prosecuted under the Espionage Act. Though the reporter Hale shared information with is not named in the indictment, his description matches that of Jeremy Scahill, one of the founding editors of The Intercept, an investigative news website. For more on this, read RSF’s publication: US – Trump administration prosecutes third whistleblower under Espionage Act. Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says Lawmakers in Washington, DC, are proposing a change in the city’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) law that grant any person the right to request access to federal agency records or information. The proposed changes would restrict records requests for government emails to matters relating only to official business, excluding personal emails and conversations. The proposal would also allow DC government agencies to reject requests that don’t include specific details about the documents being requested. There are concerns that these proposals could prevent the general public and reporters from exposing ethical breaches in which government officials mix public and private business. The DC Council chairman, who proposed the legislation, said the change is aimed at lowering the number of FOIA requests received, which have put “an increasing burden on our general counsel.” The United States ranks 48th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index. Organisation FOIA restrictions would shield DC officials who use email for personal business White House continues to limit press access Connecticut reporter detained while covering protest Police detained reporter Tara O’Neill on May 9 while she covered a demonstration. O’Neill, who works for Hearst Connecticut Media, was covering a protest in Bridgeport, Connecticut, marking the second anniversary of a police shooting that killed a 15-year-old boy. When officers ordered everyone off the street during the protest, O’Neill identified herself as a journalist, but was still handcuffed and taken to police headquarters. She was detained for about 30 minutes and eventually released without charge. “The fact that a local journalist was arrested for doing her job and reporting on the actions of police and protesters is extremely troubling,” said Matt DeRienzo, vice president of news and digital content for Hearst Connecticut Media. “The public deserves a full explanation of how it happened and what steps will be taken to make sure that the freedom of the press and the public’s right to know is not infringed upon like this in the future.” There was no comment from the police department.

Two weeks prior, police appeared at Carmody’s house asking for the identity of a source who had shown Carmody a confidential police report following the February death of the city’s public defender. About ten police reportedly entered Carmody’s house on Friday morning with a sledgehammer and a warrant claiming they were investigating “stolen or embezzled” property. He refused to disclose the identity of his source to the police or to FBI agents who questioned him about the case. He was then handcuffed for six hours as police ransacked his home with guns drawn and seized his electronic devices, taking at least four tablets, seven computers, 10 hard drives, a dozen phones and two cameras, as well as notebooks Carmody used while reporting. They eventually found the police report in a safe in Carmody’s home. While San Francisco Police Department defended its actions in a statement, calling the raid “one step in the process of investigating a potential case of obstruction of justice,” press freedom advocates have raised concerns that the raid was in violation of California’s Shield Law. United StatesAmericas WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 7, 2021 Find out more News As it continues to set a record for the number of days without holding an official press briefing, the Trump administration has enforced new rules limiting access to White House press passes altogether. The new rules state that no credentials will be given to journalists who do not come to the White House at least 90 out of the previous 180 days, claiming the new rules ensure a heightened level of security. For veteran journalist Dana Milbank of The Washington Post, this meant White House officials revoked the hard press pass he has held for the past 21 years. He was one of eight Washington Post reporters whose press passes were revoked, although his colleagues were granted exceptions not long after losing them. Milbank wrote in a May 8 op-ed that the White House offered him and other reporters whose credentials were revoked a limited six-month pass. The White House also barred reporters from attending a cabinet meeting on May 8 that was initially open to the press according to a tweet from NBC’s Peter Alexander. As of May 12, it has been 62 days since Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders held an on-camera press briefing in the White House. Sanders has only held two official briefings in 2019.

Five police shot during protests after Trump vows to bring in US military

first_imgTrump has condemned the killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American who died after a white policeman pinned his neck under a knee for nearly nine minutes in Minneapolis on May 25, and has promised justice.But, with anti-police brutality marches and rallies having turned violent after dark each day in the past week, he said rightful protests could not be drowned out by an “angry mob”.”Mayors and governors must establish an overwhelming law enforcement presence until the violence has been quelled,” Trump said. “If a city or state refuses to take the actions that are necessary to defend the life and property of their residents, then I will deploy the United States military and quickly solve the problem for them.”Floyd’s death has reignited simmering racial tensions in a politically divided country that has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, with African Americans accounting for a disproportionately high number of cases.Criticism of church visitFollowing his address, Trump walked through an area that had been cleared by police to nearby St. John’s Episcopal Church, where he posed for pictures with his daughter, Ivanka, and US Attorney General William Barr.The presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church diocese in Washington D. C., Michael Curry, was among those who criticized Trump’s use of the historic church for a photo opportunity.”In so doing, he used a church building and the Holy Bible for partisan political purposes,” he said on Twitter. The church suffered minor fire damage during protests on Monday night.The White House said it was clearing the area before a curfew.A few hours later, thousands of people marched through Brooklyn, shouting “Justice now!” while some passing drivers honked in support.Television images showed crowds smashing windows and looting luxury stores along Fifth Avenue in Manhattan before the city’s 11 p.m. curfew. Mayor Bill de Blasio said the curfew would be moved to 8 p.m. on Tuesday.Two police officers were struck by a car at a demonstration in Buffalo, New York, on Monday night. Officials said the driver and passengers were believed to be in custody. It was not clear whether the incident was intentional.In Hollywood, dozens of people were shown in television images looting a drug store. Windows were shattered at a nearby Starbucks and two restaurants.AutopsiesA second autopsy ordered by Floyd’s family and released on Monday found his death was homicide by “mechanical asphyxiation,” or physical force that interfered with his oxygen supply. The report says three officers contributed to his death.The Hennepin County Medical Examiner later released autopsy findings that also called Floyd’s death homicide by asphyxiation. The county report said Floyd suffered cardiopulmonary arrest while being restrained by police and that he had arteriosclerotic and hypertensive heart disease, fentanyl intoxication and recent methamphetamine use.Derek Chauvin, the 44-year-old Minneapolis police officer who kneeled on Floyd, was arrested on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. Three other officers involved in the arrest have not been charged.Floyd’s death was the latest case of police brutality against black men that was caught on videotape and prompted an outcry over racism in US law enforcement.Dozens of cities are under curfews not seen since riots after the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The National Guard deployed in 23 states and Washington, D.C.Most Americans were just emerging from weeks of strict “stay-at-home” orders imposed over the pandemic. At least five US police were hit by gunfire during violent protests over the death of a black man in police custody, police and media said, hours after President Donald Trump vowed to use the military to halt the unrest.Trump deepened outrage on Monday by posing at a church clutching a bible after law enforcement officers used teargas and rubber bullets to clear the way for him to walk there after he made his remarks in the White House Rose Garden.Demonstrators set fire to a strip mall in Los Angeles, looted stores in New York City and clashed with police in St Louis, Missouri, where four officers were taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. “Officers are still taking gunfire downtown & we will share more info as it available,” St Louis Police said on Twitter.A police officer was also shot during protests in the Las Vegas Strip area, AP news agency said, quoting police. Another officer was “involved in a shooting” in the same area, the agency said without giving details.It did not give details of the shootings or the officers’ condition. Police declined to comment to Reuters.Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak said in a tweet his office had been notified of two separate incidents in Las Vegas. “The State is in contact with local law enforcement and continues to monitor the situation,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

In midst of 3-game win streak, Syracuse prioritizes possession

first_img Published on April 14, 2019 at 10:28 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+ CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — After Syracuse beat North Carolina Saturday, John Desko again identified the factor that’s keyed the Orange’s recent outcomes: Possession.Against the Tar Heels, the Orange commanded the ball by sweeping up 40 grounders and leaning onDanny Varello during his hot start at the faceoff X.“That’s a lot of possessions for us and we were able to get the offense comfortable again,” Desko said after learning Varello started 10-of-10.From securing the ball at the faceoff X to scooping ground balls and patient offensive possessions, No. 9 Syracuse (8-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) and Desko have emphasized getting the ball and being deliberate with possessions. Sloppiness with the ball sunk the Orange against Notre Dame earlier this season in a 23-turnover loss. Recently, Syracuse’s held the ball more and won three straight-games.After the loss to the Fighting Irish, in which the Orange took six penalties and 17 shots, Desko lamented his team’s careless play. Midfielders dropped easy catches, passes flew long over players and on top of coughing up the ball, untimely penalties gave the ball away. In a disastrous first half, the Orange turned it over 14 times, and Syracuse trailed Notre Dame 11-3 at halftime.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You know you can’t do that,” Desko said then. “That’s 14 more times Notre Dame’s going to have the ball and have chances to score.”Talia Trackim | Digital Design DirectorTen days later, the Orange constricted then-No. 8 Cornell to a season-low eight goals by controlling the X. SU scooped 40 ground balls and took offensive possessions deep into the shot clock, rarely giving the Big Red the ball.“We wanted to make their offense watch as much as we could,” Desko said. “And they did.”With Jakob Phaup and Varello taking faceoffs, Syracuse have a two-pronged possession-generator. Phaup ranks top-5 in the country in faceoff win-percentage (66.1%) and Varello won 13-of-18 draws against UNC on Saturday. The two are SU’s direct path to dominating possession — when either are on, the Orange are difficult to beat. In the last three games, they’ve combined to win 74% of faceoffs.Syracuse’s defensive midfielders and close defenders mop up in the defensive zone when the ball hits the turf. In the midfield, any of the Orange’s long or short stick midfielders look to initiate offense.North Carolina took possession first on Saturday, but eventually Dearth came away with the ball in the defensive zone. He turned upfield and bolted through the neutral zone. As he crossed into the offensive zone unmarked, Peter Dearth turned and drew his stick back to his right hip, firing a sidewinding shot to put Syracuse ahead, 1-0.“I think our poles did very well,” Desko said. “Once again today, they put the ball back on the ground.”Syracuse offensive pace isn’t set, rather it’s a deliberate style of offense: Dodging and passing to break down the defense until a prime scoring opportunity arises, whenever it comes during the shot clock.Dearth shot in transition becausehe was wide open and SU wouldn’t have generated a better scoring chance by running its usual offensive sets. But if a slide had come, dumping the ball off would’ve been more beneficial than a missed or blocked shot that becomes a turnover.In the first half, though, the Orange scrambled more than they strung together passes, taking second-rate shots.“Halfway through the shot clock we were settling for shots that we could get with 10 seconds left on the shot clock,” senior attack Bradley Voigt said.In the second half, the Orange settled down. Possessions routinely ran until the shot clock dipped under 10 seconds and the offense broke down the Tar Heels. Varello stayed hot and Syracuse pulled away, dominating UNC in the third quarter, 4-0. In the end, a simple combination of having the ball and taking time with it is all it took.“I think we could be a little more patient,” Nate Solomon said. “I think our best game is yet to come.” Commentslast_img read more

What NBA players are saying about social justice messages on jerseys in restart

first_img Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions The plan for the NBA is to wear the message for the first four nights of competition, then put them elsewhere on their jerseys for the rest of the season if they so choose.The NBA has actively encouraged players and staff to educate themselves on social justice matters, particularly on the issue of race. An NBA app includes a list of books, music, movies, podcasts, organizations and even speeches cultivated by the NBA Black employee resource team that largely references the struggles of Black Americans.Related Articles While some players felt the approved messages verged on impersonal, they were generally pleased with the way the NBA has allowed them to express themselves at what many deem a potential crossroads about how race is discussed and seen in America.“The NBA has also done a good job of letting us use our platform, especially with what they’re doing with ‘Black Lives Matter’ with the jerseys,” Kyle Kuzma said. “I would wish it would have not been so limited to what we could put on the back of those jerseys. I feel like it could be more personal instead of less generic. I think it’s a step in the right direction.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersSocial justice messages on NBA jerseys have been a hot talking point for the last week at the NBA “Bubble” as players have gradually revealed the slogans they’ll wear when the season resumes  — or why they haven’t opted for one. Within a league that considers itself among the most progressive in major American sports, the question has drawn a variety of answers, but all seemingly with a meaningful degree of forethought.Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo opted for general, choosing “Equality,” while teammate Kyle Korver (who is white) said it was an easy call for “Black Lives Matter.” Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley said he’s wearing “I Am A Man,” which he chose as a reference to the Memphis sanitation workers strike in 1968.Lakers swingman Danny Green chose “How Many More?” a reference to multiple issues that moved him to join a Black Lives Matter protest in Los Angeles last month.“It speaks out to how many more people of color are going to get killed or die at the hands of the force, of police brutality?” he said. “How many more families are going to get denied housing? How many more black men and women are going to get denied certain job opportunities? The list goes on.”ESPN reported that the league and the NBPA approved 29 slogans that players could choose from, which has its limits. Players such as LeBron James said they had their own ideas about what they wanted to display, but they didn’t fall within league parameters. Kawhi Leonard and Anthony Davis also said they’d wear their own names, but continue to discuss and pursue social justice causes.center_img Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years ORLANDO, Fla. >> If Jimmy Butler gets his way, the social message on the back of his jersey might well be nothing at all.Not the league’s list of approved social justice messages.

Alonso brace boosts Chelsea, Huddersfield win again

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Premier League champions Chelsea got the boost they badly needed on Sunday as a double from Marcos Alonso gave them a 2-1 victory over last season’s runners-up Tottenham Hotspur in Antonio Conte’s 50th game in charge.The 26-year-old Spaniard struck the winner with less than three minutes remaining in an impressive show of character by Chelsea, after they had been pinned back when substitute Michy Batshuayi headed into his own net eight minutes from time.“This was the perfect response of champions,” Conte told Sky Sports.“I am very pleased with the will to fight for every ball and they showed me the desire of last season is still there.”While the three points get Conte’s side off the mark — the perfect riposte to their shock opening 3-2 defeat at home to Burnley — newboys Huddersfield Town made it two wins from two to sit just below leaders Manchester United on six points.The Terriers, only the third promoted side to ever win their opening two games, beat Newcastle 1-0 with impressive Australian Aaron Mooy scoring the only goal, a delightful curling effort in the second half.At Wembley, Alonso opened the scoring with a brilliant free-kick in the 24th minute, and while Tottenham pressed hard for the equaliser, Conte’s side were unfortunate not to get a second when Willian struck the post in the second half.It looked as if Conte would have to read more negative headlines on Monday as Batshuayi, who had only been on the pitch for a few minutes, headed Christian Eriksen’s free-kick past Thibaut Courtois.Alonso, though, once again rescued his team by latching onto Pedro’s pass and firing past Hugo Lloris, although the Spurs keeper should have saved.“Unbelievable and at the end in front of our own fans. It couldn’t be better,” said Alonso, who hopes to emulate his grandfather and father in playing for Spain.“As for the free-kick, I don’t score those even in training let alone a match normally!” added Alonso, who was the last Chelsea player to score an away double having done so at Leicester in January.The three points and the fact they ended the match with all 11 men on the pitch — which had not been the case in the Community Shield or their opening defeat by Burnley — will be encouraging for Conte.“I want to thank my players because their commitment, their desire and heart they put on the pitch was incredible in what has been a very difficult moment for us,” Conte told Sky Sports. Tottenham counterpart Mauricio Pochettino bemoaned his side’s lack of a killer instinct in front of goal — England striker Harry Kane’s August jinx continuing as he has failed to score in his past 12 games played in th month.“I’m disappointed because we deserved more but they were very clinical with two shots on target and two goals,” the 45-year-old Argentine told the BBC.“We dominated and we were better but if you are not clinical, you can lose like today.”Mooy, an astute purchase from Manchester City after he impressed on loan last season, praised Huddersfield manager David Wagner for their amazing start.“I don’t have to pinch myself but I didn’t expect it,” said German Wagner, who was plucked from the Borussia Dortmund reserve team job in 2015.“But it’s football, if someone knows that in football everything is possible then it’s me and our club after what we’ve seen and felt last season.”last_img read more

Miami quietly helping athletes who leave early

first_imgIn this Oct. 7, 2013, file photo, former Baltimore Raven player Ray Lewis speaks during a TV interview before the first half of an NFL football game between the Atlanta Falcons and the New York Jets in Atlanta. Lewis played his college football at Miami. But his degree is from Maryland University College. (AP Photo/David Goldman, File)CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — University of Miami President Donna Shalala would prefer Hurricane athletes get their degrees before leaving school, taking advantage of the scholarships they’ve been afforded.And she knows that won’t always be the case, of course.So very quietly, and for several years now, Miami has offered the next best thing.Lifetime scholarships, as some call it, are a hot topic around the NCAA right now, with a handful of schools and conferences in recent months saying they would encourage athletes who left early a chance to return and finish their degrees.For many schools, it’s a new concept. At Miami, it’s been an option for nearly a decade.“I just felt it was an issue of integrity,” Shalala said. “And really, it started with Ray Lewis.”Shalala heard the story a few years ago, about how Lewis — the former Baltimore Ravens star — went back to school to finish his degree while he was starring in the NFL. Lewis played his college football at Miami. But his degree is from Maryland University College, which he obtained in 2004.“We’d obviously like the athletes to stay and finish their degrees here,” Shalala said. “Coming back, they often can’t afford to pay the tuition unless they’ve made the pros. And they can’t get coaching jobs or teaching jobs unless they have their degrees. So they would have to commit themselves to finishing their degree.”At least 16 former Hurricanes have taken advantage of the chance to return to complete their degrees, many of them baseball players, former Major League catcher Charles Johnson among them. Former NFL player Lamar Thomas utilized the opportunity as well, along with former women’s tennis star Audra Cohen, among others.Given that Miami costs about $60,000 annually to attend, it’s no small commitment.“It’s a continued financial investment by the institution,” athletic director Blake James said. “We get great support from campus on this, so it’s not a strain on my budget because it’s a decision the president made that she would support these sort of initiatives.”The majority of players who have been involved so far have come from baseball, which routinely has players leave after three years — so about a year shy of a degree in most cases — to pursue pro opportunities when they become draft-eligible.Some have come from other sports, women’s basketball included. And without that program, Hurricanes coach Katie Meier might never have connected with Octavia Blue, one of her assistant coaches.Blue’s standout playing career at Miami ended in 1998, the year she joined the WNBA. After playing pro ball for about a decade, she returned to Miami, hoping to coach.Small problem: She didn’t have her degree.“Octavia had written to some people in the athletic department and said she had left because she got drafted and didn’t finish her last semester,” Meier said. “So I got asked, ‘What do you want to do?’ And I said, ‘If there’s a girl from Miami who wants to come back to get her degree, we’ve got to do whatever we can.’”Blue got welcomed back, worked at the school — “this great player, she was stuffing envelopes for us,” Meier said — while finishing her classes, and eventually got into coaching.Meier ended up hiring her in 2012.“It’s one of my favorite stories,” Meier said. “Without it, I would probably have never met her.”Coaches and athletes have been aware for years that Miami offers the opportunity, and it’s made clear that the degrees won’t be handed out easily. If someone wants to come back, they’re going to do classwork, plain and simple.Some athletes have had a full year of work left. Some needed only one class.Either way, Shalala said Miami will remain committed to the idea, and some athletes have e-mailed her personally to ask if they could come back.“We don’t have as many people leaving early as we used to and almost all our athletes now are in summer school, so we actually get them pretty close to graduation if they leave early,” Shalala said. “Some just can’t finish. So I just decided that we would do this.”last_img read more

Vine: Duke’s Justise Winslow High-Fived A Guy In An Ohio State Shirt After An And-1 During Today’s Game

first_imgDuke and UNC get set for the tip.DURHAM, NC – FEBRUARY 07: A general view of the North Carolina Tar Heels and the Duke University Blue Devils tip off at center court to begin their game on February 7, 2007 at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina. North Carolina won 79-73.(Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)No. 4 Duke routed Clemson 78-56 at Cameron Indoor Stadium this afternoon. Freshman forward Justise Winslow was a force for the Blue Devils, scoring 20 points and grabbing 13 rebounds. In the first half, Winslow racked up 17 of his points. He was unstoppable in the open court, and on one occasion, he converted a fast break bucket and was fouled. That’s where things got interesting. Take a look at the shirt on the fan Winslow celebrates with. It’s an Ohio State shirt.An OSU shirt in Cameron is a random sight. Perhaps the man was just at the game with friends who are Duke fans, and he decided to mesh with the crowd and root for the home team. Either that, or he’s a legitimate Duke supporter, which makes him an exceptionally fortunate college sports fan who has seen a wealth of success from his favorite teams this century.last_img read more
