first_imgNews March 12, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Turkmenistan TurkmenistanEurope – Central Asia #CollateralFreedom: RSF now unblocking 21 sites in 12 countries Four-year jail term for independent website’s correspondent in Turkmenistan News For the first time, netizens have managed to breach the censorship wall of one of the world’s most closed countries. In response, the regime has targeted them for harsh crackdowns, ready to do whatever it takes to retain its absolute power, even to the point of viewing people with satellite dishes and mobile phones as potential enemies. Hopes that the country would open up with the coming to power of President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov in 2007 have come to nothing.Turkmenistan, one of the countries most hostile to freedom of expression, is still technologically and financially blocking the growth of the Internet and imposing drastic censorship, resulting in a “Turkmenet” purged of any political or social topic (see the Turkmenistan chapter of the 2011 “Enemies of the Internet” report). In fact, only 2.2% of Turkmen are connected. Yet for those not using a software circumvention tool, social networks – particularly Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, considered to be troublemakers – are blocked. This censorship was extended to Gmail in February 2012.Abadan: Start of the Information War 2.0A deadly explosion at an arms depot in the Ashgabat suburb of Abadan in July 2011 marked the start of the first online information war in Turkmenistan. For the first time, netizens managed to breach the wall of silence imposed by the regime by posting on the Internet amateur videos taken with their mobile phones. Most of the videos were sent by emails to contacts abroad who could publish them online easilier.After initially covering up this incident, the authorities were eventually obliged to acknowledge it, though they tried to minimize it. But they quickly reacted by launching a wave of seizures, interrogations and incarcerations, though how many is still unknown.It is thought that dozens of netizens were arrested, at least temporarily. According to the Institute for War and Peace Reporting, one policeman allegedly stated that anyone possessing a mobile phone or Internet account with the state-owned operator Altyn Asyr was being monitored. Dovletmyrat Yazkuliyev, a Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) correspondent, and one of the first to cover this incident, was sentenced to five years in prison, then pardoned in response to international pressure. The independent news website Khronika Turkmenistana, hosted abroad, experienced several cyberattacks. Hackers pirated the subscribers’ data, and posted the identity of contributors and commentators in lieu of the site.Mobile phones and satellite dishes under close surveillanceConnection speed has declined since Russian telecom company MTS was ousted from Turkmenistan. The “Central Asia: Censorship and Control of the Internet and Other New Media” briefing paper written by several NGOs claims that the regime, dissatisfied with national operator Altyn Asyr, which had become a monopoly once its only competitor was eliminated, signed a contract with Huawei Technologies (China) and the Finnish-German company Nokia Siemens Networks to increase network capacity and offer new services. It remains to be seen what these companies can achieve in a country whose government routinely monitors netizens.According to the state TV network, President Gurbanguly Berdymukhamedov, who in 2008 had already declared war on satellite dishes, announced in May 2011 that their number would be limited, complaining that they “spoil the appearance of buildings.” The main reason for this initiative was to prevent the population from escaping the state-controlled media’s relentless propaganda by tuning into Russian, Turkish and Arabic satellite television channels.Technological ambitions up against the censorship wallDuring a speech made in January 2012 just before his programmed “reelection,” Turkmenistan’s President apparently stated his desire to form “a new generation of specialists who have mastered all the modern communications and multi-media technologies” in a future “highly developed information society” who will advance civilization “by the unrestrained flight of human thought.” The President apparently grasped the country’s need to modernize, but refuses to question the censorship system that keeps him in power, even as he strives to bolster his own personality cult. The Eurasianet website sums up the situation as: “Berdymukhamedov’s Failed Internetization.“ March 13, 2020 Find out more December 18, 2020 Find out more Receive email alerts Organisation March 31, 2020 Find out more TurkmenistanEurope – Central Asia Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Turkmenistan News to go further Coronavirus off limits in Turkmenistan News RSF_en last_img read more

Simulation of the climatic effects of natural forcings during the pre-industrial era

first_imgThe MPM-2, an Earth system model of intermediate complexity, is employed to study the climate system response to natural forcings during the pre-industrial era (1000-1800 AD), with a special focus on the surface air temperature (SAT) evolution. Solar radiation and volcanism are the primary natural forcings during this period. In the MPM-2, the solar radiation forcing determines the long-term trend of the climate system change, and the volcanic forcing intensifies (weakens) this trend. Ultimately, the combination of solar and volcanic forcings dominates the long-term changes of the climate system. These results aro in good agreement with other model data or temperature reconstructions. Natural forcings can well explain the Little Ice Age (LIA) and the Medieval Warm Period (MWP). At the large regional scale, the SAT response to natural forcings is almost coincident with that of the Northern Hemisphere. Based on MPM-2 model results, it is concluded that the global climate gradually became cold during the pre-industrial era. However, MPM-2 model results substantially correlate with reconstructed solar and volcanic forcings. Namely, to some great extent, these results strongly rely on the forcing series data we choose. Therefore, in order to accurately simulate the secular variation of the historical climate, it is very important to reconstruct well the solar radiation change and volcanic forcing data are well reconstructed for the past 10000 years, at least for the past 2000 years, in addition to the model improvements. The sensitivity study on the abrupt solar radiation change indicates that the increased solar radiation not only strengthens the nonlinear response of SAT, but intensifies the global hydrological cycle. At the same time, the biosphere is also affected obviously.last_img read more

Bengals release linebacker Vontaze Burfict after seven seasons

first_imgMarch 19, 2019 /Sports News – National Bengals release linebacker Vontaze Burfict after seven seasons Beau Lund FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAllen Kee / ESPN Images(CINCINNATI) — After seven seasons together, the Cincinnati Bengals are parting ways with linebacker Vontaze Burfict.The team announced on Monday it has terminated Burfict’s contract and released him to free agency.“As we continue to build our roster for the 2019 season, we felt it best to give both the team and Vontaze a fresh start,” Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said in a statement. “Vontaze has been a good player here — the team appreciates that, and I know a lot of fans appreciate that — but our focus is on the future. Our goal is to build a successful team for the upcoming season, and we felt that making this change now was best for everyone.”Burfict, 28, has spent his entire NFL career with Cincinnati, signing with the team in 2012. In his seven seasons in the league, he’s recorded 684 tackles, 8.5 sacks and five interceptions.But Burfict’s career was also plagued with multiple suspensions, resulting in him missing several games. He was suspended by the NFL at the beginning of the 2016, 2017 and 2018 seasons for various violations.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.center_img Written bylast_img read more

Premier’s RHM plans

first_imgInnovation and investment were promised by Premier Foods after it took over RHM, which comprises milling, bread and cakes businesses, for £1.2bn this week.Premier’s chief executive Robert Schofield told British Baker: “This acquisition transforms our scale and we believe it will enable us to be a better partner with our retail customers.”RHM’s bread and bakeries division has been performing very well with growing sales and margins. Premier plans to improve performance through a tight control of costs, strong innovation and category expansion.”He said that the cakes division will be integrated into Premier’s Grocery division.Schofield added: “Hovis is a fantastic brand with great potential both in bread and adjacent categories – it will be our biggest brand when the acquisition completes, with £380m of sales. There is tremendous potential to stretch this brand into other categories.”He continued: “There are costs to come out of the overhead structure of the business but we see the bread and bakeries business as offering significant opportunities.”City investment analyst, David Lang of Investec, told British Baker: “Milling and baking are new areas for Premier so it would would doubtless be keen to retain RHM’s management to run the show.”Combining Premier and RHM in a new UK food industry leader should raise purchasing power, and management also expects to enjoy a stronger negotiating position with retailers,” said Lang.”Premier is eyeing up distribution where it says its scale might provide opportunities for radical new solutions. It’s not the first outsider that thinks it can fix endemic bread delivery efficiency problems.”At an investors meeting held by Premier on the morning of the takeover announcement, Lang said the company outlined plans to extend the Hovis brand.”It sees opportunities for Hovis outside its bread core. A biscuit revisit and cereals were mentioned,” he said. “The Hovis relaunch has been successful and its new ’health’ positioning could be used to extend the brand.”RHM invested £20m in new products, packaging advertising in July 2006.last_img read more

Community funds new bakery in Exeter

first_imgA bakery producing sourdough breads and homemade cakes is set to be at the heart of a new local food shop and café in Exeter, which is to be financed entirely with investment from the local community.A community share offer was launched earlier this month to raise £190,000-worth of funding for the Real Food Store, which is planned to open in October at a 2,400sq ft, three-storey site in Exeter city centre. A 300sq ft open bakery, leased to local bakery company Emma’s Bread, will be a key feature of the new community-owned enterprise, supplying the shop and the café with bread, cakes and pastries.The project, which has grown out of work by community group Transition Exeter, is headed up by eight local people, who have a mix of expertise and professional skills, including Emma Parkin, owner of Emma’s Bread. Local residents are being encouraged to buy shares in the shop, with a minimum investment of £100 and a maximum of £20,000, with a dividend expected to be paid after three years of trading. Around 130 people attended the launch of the community share offer on 10 June. The offer is due to close on 23 July.“There are lots of coffee shop chains in Exeter, but nowhere where you can sit and eat cake straight from the oven; where people can see, hear and smell their bread being made,” said Parkin. “By raising funding through the community, people will hopefully feel connected to the business and will be keen to support it.”last_img read more
