Support for call by wife for review of imprisoned cyber-dissident Yang Zili’s trial

first_img News to go further February 6, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Support for call by wife for review of imprisoned cyber-dissident Yang Zili’s trial June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders today voiced support for a request for a review of cyber-dissident Yang Zili’s trial, which his wife, Lu Kun, has made on the grounds of new evidence that shows that he was convicted on trumped-up charges. The Beijing intermediate court turned down her request, but she filed a new request to the supreme court and is still awaiting its decision. Yang has been in prison since 2001.“Statements obtained by Lu shows that the security services fabricated the evidence on which Yang was convicted,” the press freedom organisation said. “The manipulation they expose is unacceptable. We expect China’s supreme court to play its role and redress the mistakes made by the other courts.”The first statement obtained by Lu is that of former State Security Bureau agent Li Yuzhou, who began spying on Yang and his group of friends at the Beijing teacher training college in May 2000 because they were suspected of “wanting to promote social reforms in China.” Li was told to infiltrate the group and report on their real intentions.The former agent’s statement to Lu is critical of his fellow agents and superiors, accusing them of altering the four reports he made in order to justify arresting Yang and three of his colleagues, Xu Wei, Jin Haike and Zhang Honghai.Li explained how he manipulated the young pro-democracy activists on the orders of his superiors. “Once I had joined the group, I was supposed to get its members to meet and talk, especially about their most radical positions, while agents in an adjoining room recorded the conversations,” Li said. The former agent explained that he became friends with the members of the group, which called itself the “New Youth Society.” In his view: “There was nothing illegal about the group and it posed no danger for the country. These young people were just meeting to talk and express their views.”The statements of two other members of the group, He Zhongzhou and Zhang Yanhua, corroborate what Li said. “We were just friends who met to talk, often about social problems, sure, but we never questioned the communist ideology,” said He, who also accused the judges of bias during the 2003 trial: “No account was taken of my testimony. As evidence, they preferred to use the false statements made by people in cahoots with the police.”A computer specialist and founder of the website www.lib.126.com, Yang was arrested on 20 April 2001 after writing articles for his website that advocated political freedoms, criticised the crackdown on the Falun Gong spiritual movement and deplored the economic hardship of China’s peasants. He also posted articles by other members of his group, which used to meet once a week to discuss political reform.He was sentenced by the Beijing intermediate court on 28 May 2003 to eight years in prison for “subverting state authority.” The sentence was confirmed on appeal on 10 November 2003. The three other members of the group who were arrested with him also received long prison sentences. Xu (a journalist) and Jin (a geologist) got ten years, while Zhang (a writer) got eight years.Reporters Without Borders established a system of sponsorship 16 years ago in which international media are encouraged to adopt imprisoned journalists. More than 200 news organisations throughout the world are currently supporting journalists by regularly calling on the authorities to release them and by publicising their cases. Yang has been adopted by Member of the European Parliament Marielle de Sarnez, Maud Gatel, UDF, Métro (France), RTL (France), Fun Radio (Belgium), Le Devoir (Canada), “Le Grand Journal” (TQS TV Canada), The Daily Courier, The Telegram and Radio Canada International.————————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org April 27, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Follow the news on China Newscenter_img RSF_en Organisation News News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures ChinaAsia – Pacific Receive email alerts March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Teen threatens ‘massacre’ at former high school through Instagram

By on May 18, 2021

first_imgstockcam/iStock(MONTEBELLO, Calif.) — A teenager was arrested in California after allegedly threatening a “massacre” at his former high school through a post on Instagram, police said.The threat in Montebello, just outside of Los Angeles, was reported to police late Friday night by a mom, said Montebello police. She said her son received an Instagram message from someone who said he “was going to take a gun and start a massacre” at Montebello High School on Monday, March 2, police said.The 18-year-old suspect, Devin Harper, was expelled from Montebello High School about two years ago for making a similar threat, according to police.When Harper was confronted by authorities, he allegedly denied posting the threats, police said. When officers asked him to pull up the post, “he told the officers that he was unable to access it,” the police department said.Harper was arrested and charged with criminal threats, police said. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney. Police said he will appear in court on Tuesday.Classes at Montebello High School are continuing as normal on Monday but school police officers were dispatched to campus “out of an abundance of caution,” principal Horacio Perez said.“These matters are taken very seriously,” Perez said in a statement. “Our administration is in contact with Montebello Police, school police, and [the] district office.”The superintendent of the Montebello Unified School District did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Gas prices up, then down again, in Indiana

By on April 20, 2021

first_img By Jon Zimney – August 17, 2020 0 399 Gas prices up, then down again, in Indiana Google+ (“Gas Pump” by Mike Mozart, CC BY 2.0) Gas prices went up slightly last week, but it might be a good idea to wait until later this week to fill up your tank.“We did see a price bump last week to $2.19 at most stations. It was our first increase in several weeks, at least,” says Patrick DeHaan, the head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. “But already since then, prices have started to go back down a couple of cents a gallon. It should spend most of the week declining slowly, so waiting to fill your tank is not a bad idea.”When the coronavirus situation improves, gas prices and demand tend to go up. While it may appear that gas and oil prices are fluctuating, DeHaan says he has seen signs that demand is growing.“GasBuddy Gasoline Demand Data showed that last week’s gasoline demand improved by about 2%. I do think we’ll see demand continue to go up. Perhaps we are rounding a corner, where prices may start drifting higher for the next few weeks as well,” says DeHaan. “Should demand continue to rebound, its only natural that with less oil on global markets, prices are likely to drift to the upside if the situation continues to improve.”DeHaan says gas prices typically go down in September, but September of 2020 could be much different.“If the situation with the coronavirus continues to improve, we could see demand going up into the fall compared to the very low levels of the summer. We’re still 15% lower for gasoline demand than last summer, but it’s still unknown because we are in uncharted territory here,” says DeHaan.DeHaan says northwest Indiana tends to have more expensive gas prices.“It’s the only part of the state that requires a different blend of gasoline for the summer than the rest of the state tends to be more pricey. Prices in the southern tier of the state like Bloomington or Evansville tend to be a little bit lower. That could be because of competition with Kentucky,” says DeHaan.GasBuddy says the statewide average for gas is $2.15 per gallon, which is an increase of four cents from this time last week. On Monday, Aug. 17, in South Bend, the lowest price for gasoline on Monday was $1.89 for a gallon of regular unleaded. The average price was $2.12.In Indianapolis, the average was $2.14. It’s $2.18 in Fort Wayne and $2.03 in Evansville.For the latest gas prices, go to https://www.gasbuddy.com/ Pinterest Facebook Twitter IndianaLocalNews WhatsApp Facebook Pinterest Twitter Google+ WhatsApp Previous articleBraun wants answers from Biden about his plans for ChinaNext articleIUSB offering two dates for virtual registration Jon ZimneyJon Zimney is the News and Programming Director for News/Talk 95.3 Michiana’s News Channel and host of the Fries With That podcast.

Trump campaign denies Guardian report the president assaulted a woman in 1997

By on October 19, 2020

first_imgTopics : The newspaper published photos that it said were provided by Dorris showing her with Trump and said that it interviewed several people who Dorris confided in at the time of the incident. It said that in total she provided six photos showing the two together as well as her ticket to the tournament on the day she said the incident occurred.Trump has faced a number of allegations of sexual misconduct prior to his time in office. Shortly before the November 2016 election an “Access Hollywood” recording from 2005 revealed him boasting about groping women. Trump dismissed the comments as “locker room banter” and apologized.Dorris, a mother of twins, told the newspaper she considered coming forward in 2016 but decided against doing so partly out of fears for her family.”Now I feel like my girls are about to turn 13 years old and I want them to know that you don’t let anybody do anything to you that you don’t want,” she said.  US President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign on Thursday denied a Guardian newspaper report in which a former model accused the New York real estate developer of sexually assaulting and groping her at the US Open tennis tournament in 1997.The Guardian reported that Amy Dorris told the paper in an interview that Trump assaulted her outside a bathroom in his VIP box at the tournament that year. She was 24 at the time, the newspaper said.”He just shoved his tongue down my throat and I was pushing him off. And then that’s when his grip became tighter and his hands were very gropey and all over my butt, my breasts, my back, everything,” the newspaper quoted Dorris as saying.center_img The president’s re-election campaign on Thursday said the allegations were not true.”The allegations are totally false. We will consider every legal means available to hold The Guardian accountable for its malicious publication of this unsubstantiated story,” said Jenna Ellis, a legal advisor to Trump’s campaign.Efforts to reach Dorris by phone for comment were unsuccessful.The Guardian said in an email it stood by its reporting.last_img read more

The Wonder and Blunder in Your Skull

By on December 19, 2019

first_imgEven when it goes awry, the brain wins an award of cosmic proportions, according to a veteran psychiatrist.In an article for the BBC News about Sir Robin Murray’s lifelong research into the causes of schizophrenia, the interviewer put the most significant quote in the first paragraph:“We won’t be able to understand the brain. It is the most complex thing in the universe,” says Professor Sir Robin Murray, one of the UK’s leading psychiatrists.Earlier this month, though, Chris Stringer entitled an article in Nature (485, May 3, 2012, pp. 33-35, doi:10.1038/485033a ), “Evolution: What makes a modern human.”  He seemed more interested in the skull – the container – than the cosmic superlative inside it.PhysOrg, likewise, put the human brain on an evolutionary continuum with those of mice, even though the scientists admitted mouse brains have not evolved since mice first scurried about.  “The brains of larger mammals, such as humans, however, have a completely different structure to those of mice,” the article said, leaving some readers to wonder how evolution can produce opposites – stasis and radical restructuring – within a single theory.How does evolution get from brain to mind?  Current Biology (22:10, R392-R396, 22 May 2012, doi:10.1016/j.cub.2012.03.033) recognized the philosophical difficulty in trying to explain, in material terms, something as simple as our conscious experience of qualia (singular, quale), i.e., “the phenomenal aspect of consciousness or ‘what it is like’ character of subjective experience.”Perhaps the most difficult biological question of all might be how and why electrochemical neuronal activity in the brain generates subjective conscious experience such as the redness of red or the painfulness of pain. Neuroscientists track how light impinging on the retina is transformed into electrical pulses (neuronal spikes), relayed through the visual thalamus to reach the visual cortex, and finally culminates in activity within speech-related areas causing us to say ‘red’. But how such experience as the redness of red emerges from the processing of sensory information is utterly mysterious. It is also unclear why these experiences possess phenomenal characteristics, which can be directly accessed only from the subject having the experience. This is called the ‘hard problem’ of consciousness as coined by the philosopher David Chalmers.This was no problem at all for Dan Jones, though, who in New Scientist argued that evolution wired our brains to argue.  Indeed, contra Sir Robin Murray, he believed he could understand the brain.  Darwin showed him how.  In “The argumentative ape: Why we’re wired to persuade,” Jones tried to persuade readers that evolution wired us to engage in several logical fallacies, including confirmation bias.  “We’re all guilty of flawed thinking because our brains evolved to win others round to our point of view – whether or not our reasoning is logical,” he argued persuasively, using game theory and other methods to show how our brains “evolved to” do this or that deceptive thing.Jones was sure he was not guilty himself, even if he didn’t take time to explain how he himself got outside of evolution to look back at the rest of humanity from an unguided process that produced a “flawed instrument” geared to “dupe others” rather than to recognize logic, reason, and truth – let alone qualia.Didn’t Robin Murray discuss paranoia and schizophrenia as delusions?  “”The amazing thing about schizophrenia is these are people who have to live their life without being able to believe their senses,” he said.  “When you or I hear something we know that it is real.”  Yet Dan Jones can look at the most complex thing in the universe and argue, as if he believes what he is saying is true and real, that it is the result of pointless mutations that resulted in our brains evolving to manipulate others.Exercise: Prove that Dan Jones is not manipulating you but is logically speaking truth by using reason.  Use only Darwinian presuppositions.  (Warning: this is an exercise in futility.)Follow-up exercise:  Provide an evolutionary explanation for the quale of futility.(Visited 22 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Magic Wand – Geocache of the Week

By on December 17, 2019

first_imgMulti-CacheGC3KWJEby duck 43 Have you ever wished for a magic wand that could solve all of your problems with just a wave? While wielding this power in everyday life may only exist in fairy tales, you can experience the next best thing. Visit this Multi-Cache where your wish for a “magic” wand comes true to reveal the smiley for this Geocache of the Week! Image by duck 43 – Perth, Western Autstralia’s capital city, can be viewed in the background of GZThe backdrop for the Multi, Magic Wand, is the capital city of Perth in Western Australia (WA). Ground zero overlooks the Swan River, an idyllic estuary that contrasts the bustling metropolis of WA’s largest city. Cache owner, creative wizard, and Australia’s highest Favorited hider, duck 43 located the spot over six years ago. “It was such a lovely location, I simply had to come up with something special. At the time I was not an experienced hider and could not have imagined how popular this cache would become.”Image by Dark Energy – the wand is in close proximity to the cache containerThere are two stages to the Multi-Cache: one for the cache container and one for the key to access the log— the magic wand! Step aside Harry Potter and Fairy Godmother, this wand consists of a classic, black rod with an attractive special feature (no, not fairy dust). “I don’t know how I came up with the idea for the mechanism, but I knew I would have to use magnets to open the box,” duck 43 said of their creative process. The wand was specially made for this cache. The cache itself is nestled nearby under a natural, cave-like arch of foliage. It is comprised of an outer box (on which you can cast your spells) that provides protection for the inner Lock & Lock with logbook.Image by duck 43 – the container can be seen under a cave-like structure in the brushGeocachers can proclaim Alohomora! if they wish to astound young wizards with ‘sorcery’ in opening this cache, but the components all conform to the laws of physical science. “It is quite simple really. A magnet moves across, like a latch, and prevents the lid from opening. By sliding a magnet on the outside, it would move another one on the inside which would move into a position to become a locking bolt. To close it you simply place the wand magnet in a position to repel the internal magnet.” Image by duck 43 – geocache container placed with permissionThe combination of a beautiful venue and cache design have drawn geocachers from across the globe to the Multi, including from the United Kingdom, the United States, and the Netherlands. “We have a limited population in Western Australia, so most geocachers have found it but people from overseas and interstate put it on their priority list. It has been muggled a couple of times but generally not badly and I have been able to fix it. . .The favourable logs help to keep me motivated!” The attention garnered this cache with over 200 Favorite points, the current leader in Western Australia.
