Letter to provincial governor about journalist forced to go into hiding

This is the text of the letter:Chief Timipre Sylva, Bayelsa State Governor, Yenagoa, NigeriaParis, 4 June 2009Dear Governor Sylva,Reporters Without Borders, an organisation that defends press freedom worldwide, would like to share with you its concern about the safety of Segun James, the national newspaper Thisday’s correspondent in the state you govern. He has had to flee Yenagoa, the state capital, and go into hiding after learning that certain individuals are after him.Several individuals who did not identify themselves made several visits to Thisday’s bureau in Yenagoa on 27 May asking where Segun James was. These repeated visits came the day after the publication of an article by James about the arrest of Ken Niweigha, the alleged mastermind of the 1999 murders of 12 policemen. It is reported that Niweigha is the elder brother of your current aide-de-camp. You reportedly denied this in an interview for Bayelsa Radio.It is not entirely clear why these individuals are currently looking for James. We urge you to take this matter very seriously and do everything possible to identify the people who are threatening him.As you know, journalists are often the victims of intimidation and physical attacks in Nigeria. By publicly undertaking to guarantee James’s security you would demonstrate your commitment to press freedom and would sent a strong signal to all those who might be tempted to target journalists in Bayelsa State.We trust you will give our request your careful consideration.Respectfully,Jean-François JulliardSecretary General RSF_en NigeriaAfrica February 8, 2021 Find out more News News Follow the news on Nigerialast_img read more

For more than 20 years, Mr. Reese was a fixture as “the guy behind the counter” at Poo Bah Records.Richard Reese was born August 17, 1933 in Hawthorne, California. As a young boy, he was given classical piano lessons and would play for the family; he even performed once on local radio. However, as a teenager he rebelled by abandoning the instrument and beginning a lifelong love affair with jazz. This also lead him towards a career in the music industry working in retail, distribution, management, and booking.In the “F**k Youth” videoHe landed his first record store job in 1964 at Benson’s House of Music in Highland Park. Later, he became a rep for the jazz label CTI. Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Richard was also booking shows and managing bands, including working with eccentric jazz legend Sun Ra.Reese lived most of his life in the Los Angeles area, but for a few years in the 1970s, he moved to Isla Vista to run a small record shop called Morninglory Music. Around 1977 he moved back to L.A. and began his 20-odd year run at Poo Bah’s where he became the domestic and indie buyer.During his tenure, he sold countless LPs, tapes, CDs, and even eight-tracks to generations of music lovers. Famous patrons included Los Angeles Laker star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.With son Rick Woodard, 1994 Poo Bah NightRichard revelled in the eccentric and offbeat, hanging out with the crowd that created the Pasadena Doo-Dah parade. In 1993 and 2002, he was given the honor of being the grand marshall.Reese loved being surrounded by music and musicians. He was a strong supporter of local bands and became even more involved when his son Rick, a drummer, began playing around town. Richard could be seen running psychedelic lights for the goth group Vicious Fiction and hanging out in Silver Lake when punk/pop heroes Velouria were making the scene. His round spectacles and beatnik beard made him look like a character from an underground comic book come to life.In the 90s, he began booking monthly shows billed as “Poo Bah Nights.” His first show was in July of 1994 at the Coconut Teaszer celebrating the store’s 20th anniversary. Richard always put the bands and the music first: it took a number of years before he allowed himself to be compensated for any of the shows he booked.In the last six months of his life, Reese achieved fifteen minutes of fame when the video for his son’s latest band, Superbean, went viral. The song, “F**k Youth,” a semi-satirical ode to punks growing old, featured Reese in a bathrobe shouting “Get off my lawn!,” and racked up over half a million views in three weeks.Last year, he was diagnosed with liver cancer and decided to forgo treatment. He died in his home shortly after midnight, Sunday, June 10, 2018.He is survived by his sisters Diane and Delores, daughters Alisa Guandique, Teresa Jordan, and son, Rick. He has four grandchildren and eight great-grandkids.last_img read more

November marked the sixth consecutive month of improvements in mortgage delinquency rates. And the national delinquency rate fell 1.5 percentage points from its peak of 7.8% in May.Furthermore, November saw a total of 4,400 foreclosure starts and 176,000 loans in active foreclosure—both levels are the lowest that Black Knight reported began it began tracking these in 2000. There was also a positive breakthrough with early-stage delinquencies, which have fallen below pre-pandemic levels.However, not all of the news is copacetic. Black Knight also noted that the national delinquency rate is a full three percentage points above pre-pandemic levels while seriously past-due mortgages remain 1.8 million above pre-pandemic levels.Black Knight also noted that prepayments fell 11% from October’s 16-year high, adding that prepay activity will likely remain elevated for the near future due to record-low interest rates and a refinance incentive at an all-time high.Michael Sklarz, who leads Black Knight Data and Analytics’ Collateral Analytics team, predicted that many homeowners facing the expiration of their forbearance plans under the CARES Act might put their properties up for sale rather than face mortgage delinquency.“There are millions of homeowners currently in forbearance across the country who will lose those protections throughout next year and—depending upon their ability to return to performing status—who may find themselves facing foreclosure,” Sklarz wrote on the Black Knight blog. “This is of course assuming a Biden administration doesn’t extend the moratoriums currently in place. Regardless, we may very well see a meaningful increase in the number of homes listed for sale as these borrowers choose to sell at what is arguably an intermediate top in the market and downsize to more affordable homes rather than face foreclosure.”Sklarz added that this scenario, which would suddenly pump housing inventory levels higher, could result in home prices going down with equal speed.“Combined with overbuilding of new housing units, this could create a situation not unlike that seen following the housing crash in 2007-2008, which took many years to resolve itself, and where we saw inland U.S. real estate market prices move sideways for an extended period of time,” he said. “While there are still too many uncertain factors at play to outright declare a real estate bubble, we do see the potential for correction in markets both inland and coastal. It’s a critical situation that will require highly accurate data and experienced insight to analyze in the coming months.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Share Save Sign up for DS News Daily Delinquency Report Reflects ‘Critical Situation’ Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Previous: Where Americans Are Most At Risk of Losing Homes Next: Housing Advocates Applaud Stimulus Deal The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

AILET 2020, for most aspirants, was a bag full of pleasant surprises, though to be fair, owing to the extremely limited seats it offers, pleasant surprise won’t result in an actual NLU-D seat for most. But the paper, unlike atleast the last 3 AILETs, was broadly on an easy-to-medium side and the very kind of questions that had made AILET the much dreaded paper in the last few years (extremely lengthy legal reasoning questions, difficult data arrangement questions etc.) were either missing or sparsely used.Let’s delve deeper into section-wise analysis of AILET 2020:English Language: The English section, in lines with the last few AILETs, was on a tougher side and had one Reading Comprehension passage and the paper was heavier on the Grammar and Vocabulary side. There were questions on Sentence Correction, Fill in the Blanks, Idioms and Phrases, Odd One Out, Parts of Speech etc. An attempt of about 25 questions should be considered as decent in this section.General Knowledge: GK in AILET 2020 was the easiest section. Questions were mostly on Current Affairs but had a decent set of Static GK questions too. Questions were asked on Cytokine Storm, Magsaysay award, Nobel Peace Prize, Criminalization of Fake News, Greta Thunberg etc. The Static GK questions were from standard topics like History, Geography, Economy etc. An attempt of about 22-23 should be considered good in this section.Legal Aptitude: This was arguably the most difficult section of AILET. It had almost half Legal Reasoning questions, which though were mostly as lengthy as the last two editions of AILET, but it still confused quite a few students. There was also one set of 4 questions which were based on five Legal Reasoning principles. On predictable lines, it had a lot of Current Legal Knowledge questions, which included questions packaged as Statement-based questions. Attempts around 22-23 should be considered as good in this section.Logical Reasoning: Going strictly against the AILET standards, AILET 2020 set an easy-to-moderate Logical section. Questions were heavy on Analytical front and had lesser questions of Critical Reasoning. Analytical Reasoning questions were from a bouquet of topics which included Calendars, Clocks, Direction Sense, Arrangements, Family Tree, Coding-Decoding etc. Questions on Critical Reasoning were from Statement-Conclusions and Paragraph Based Questions. Attempts around 25-27 should be considered as good in this section.Mathematics: The Maths section of AILET was moderate-to-difficult with questions from Equations, Time & Work, Permutations and Combinations, Profit, Loss and Discount, Mixtures etc. Safe number of attempts in Mathematics is around 6.Coming to the conduction of the examination, though broadly the examination seems to have been conducted in a smooth manner, there are reports of a few centers being mismanaged, which resulted in a few aspirants wasting valuable time or not able to perform to the optimum! To top it all, there is a test centre in Delhi in which AILET apparently didn’t happen at all! Sincerely hope that doesn’t become the case with CLAT!To conclude, AILET 2020 can broadly be categorized as a Moderate paper with a few easy sections (quite unlike the last few AILETs) and thus the cut-off should increase this year. The first list cut-off for General Category in the last two AILETs have ranged between 71 and 73. Expected cut-off for AILET 2020 is around 82 (First List) and 110+ should be considered a good number of attempts.That’s it for the moment. All eyes on CLAT 2020 now!
