BlackBerry maker warns of profit fall

first_img Tags: NULL Share KCS-content BlackBerry maker warns of profit fall SHARES in BlackBerry maker Research in Motion (RIM) fell 12 per cent in after hours trading yesterday after it cut its earnings forecast for the current quarter due to heavy investment in its new products.Ontario-based RIM delivered a $934m (£572m) net profit or $1.78 earnings per share in its fourth-quarter, which ended in February, up 31 per cent from $710m or $1.27 per share a year earlier.But it said profits in the current quarter, ending in May this year, would fall to $1.47-1.55 per share as it increased its R&D spend on its new PlayBook tablet ahead of its 19 April launch.Co-chief executive Jim Balsillie said the investment was “laying a strong foundation for RIM’s expanding market opportunity”. But the market viewed it as revealing deep concerns about the performance of its new products as it tries to keep up with powerful rivals Google and Apple, with many fearing it cannot maintain its market-leading position.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Albany, NY Advocacy Peace & Justice, Press Release Service The unexpected passage Tuesday of HB 426, Georgia’s Hate Crimes Bill was a big win for the state and for Episcopalians who have fought for the measure, The Right Rev. Rob Wright said in a statement issued after legislators approved the legislation.“I am thankful to those who supported this much needed affirmation that hate has no place in Georgia. Our state’s citizens deserve a hate crimes bill that affirms equal treatment under the law.“As a follower of Jesus, I condemn hate driven actions of all stripe. Whether they be violence against our brothers and sisters of color or our LGBTQ brothers and sisters or our Jewish and Muslim siblings who adhere to a faith in the same God I honor and worship.“Now is the time for all people of good will to continue the heart and mind work that is needed for all citizens to be seen as worthwhile and beloved members of society.”Earlier, Wright and other board members of the Georgia Interfaith Public Policy Center had joined individuals, business leaders and civil rights groups in supporting the measure. GIPPC issued a statement decrying hate crimes and calling for Georgia to leave the list of four states not outlawing hate crimes.The hate crime bill, which enhances the penalties for crimes motivated by the race, sexual orientation, or religion of the victims, passed Tuesday by wide margins in both houses of the Georgia legislature. It was an outcome that seemed unlikely just a few days earlier.The bill had languished in a Senate committee without a hearing for more than a year. Then, after the outcry over the slaying of Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick and other Black men and women including Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta a hearing was set for last Friday.The bill was approved by the committee in a party line vote with a “poison pill” amendment adding police officers and other first responders to the list of those protected. It took a late-night bipartisan agreement on Monday that moved the law enforcement provision to another bill to clear the way for the vote putting Georgia on the list of 47 states that have a hate crimes law.Bishop Wright has been a leader in working for racial and ethnic healing since being consecrated Bishop of Atlanta in 2012.Along with Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, Wright in 2017, established the Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing. The Center is now a worldwide resource for those seeking ways to heal longstanding rifts between races.You can learn more about the work of the Jones Center and other social justice work of the Diocese of Atlanta at Submit an Event Listing Rector Smithfield, NC An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY last_img read more

Six years after Guantanamo was turned into a prison camp, Reporters Without Borders calls again for its closure and for Al-Jazeera cameraman’s release

first_img United StatesAmericas News June 3, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF_en Receive email alerts On the eve of the sixth anniversary of the arrival of the first detainees at the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay in eastern Cuba, Reporters Without Borders today reiterated its call for the camp’s closure and the release of Sami Al-Haj, a Sudanese cameraman with the pan-Arab TV station Al-Jazeera who has been held there without charge since June 2002.Several hundred persons captured by the US army during “Operation Enduring Freedom” in Afghanistan were transferred to Guantanamo Bay on 11 January 2002, thereby turning the naval base into a prison camp where at one point 770 people were held without any of the legal guarantees envisaged by the US constitution or by the Geneva Conventions on prisoners of war.Al-Haj is one of the roughly 300 people still being held at the camp, which Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard visited last week without being allowed to see him. Ménard’s visit will be the subject of an article in the next issue of the French magazine Médias.“We appeal for Al-Haj’s release or his transfer to his home country,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Negotiations on his transfer are currently under way. We went to Guantanamo in the hope of meeting him but we not allowed to do this. However, we were able to visit the detention centres inside the camp and to talk to guards, hospital staff, military officers in charge of the Annual Administrative Reviews and Rear Admiral Mark H. Buzby, the head of the Guantanamo Joint Task Force.“Guantanamo is a legal and humanitarian scandal that has now dragged on for six years. What has been achieved? In the absence of charges, 500 of its detainees have been removed and in most cases sent back to their country of origin. It is hard to understand why around 300 are still being held there, especially as the authorities plan to try only 60-80 of them. The US supreme court rightly ruled on 30 June 2006 that the special military tribunals set up to try these “enemy combatants” were unconstitutional, and the US senate judiciary committee said on 7 June 2007 that they should be restored their right to habeas corpus.“This is not enough,” Reporters Without Borders added. “The winner of the 7 November presidential election, who will take office in January 2009, must put an end to a situation that is humanely intolerable and legally untenable. We call on all the candidates competing for their party’s nomination in the primaries to undertake to close Guantanamo.”Arrested by the Pakistani army on the Afghan border in December 2001, Al-Haj was handed over to the US military a month later and was transferred to Guantanamo on 13 June 2002. The US military claimed that he secretly interviewed Osama Bin Laden, trafficked in arms for Al-Qaeda and ran an Islamist website but no evidence was ever produced to support these allegations and he was never formally charged.Regularly tortured and interrogated about 200 times by his guards, Al-Haj began a hunger strike on 7 January 2007 to protest against his detention and to demand respect for his rights. In reprisal, he was force-fed several times. His lawyer, Clive Stafford-Smith, who visited him in July, said he had lost 18 kilos and had serious intestinal problems. He also has paranoia attacks and has more and more difficulty in communicating normally.Two of the nine Sudanese prisoners in Guantanamo were released last month. In a recent memo to the Sudanese government, the US authorities said they would return Al-Haj to Sudan only if he were banned from leaving the country and were banned from working as journalist.The CIA announced on 15 December that it destroyed videos of detainees being interrogated in Guantanamo and in its secret prisons, despite a court order to preserve them. A criminal investigation into their destruction began on 2 January, but federal judge Henry H. Kennedy said a week later that he would not insist on questioning José Rodríguez, the former CIA officer who reportedly ordered their destruction. In response to congressional protests, Kennedy said he would await the results of a justice department internal probe. The New York Times reported last month that four White House legal advisers endorsed their destruction.Reporters Without Borders established a system of sponsorship 18 years ago in which international media are encouraged to adopt imprisoned journalists. More than 200 news organisations, journalists’ associations, press clubs and other entities throughout the world are currently supporting journalists by regularly calling on the authorities to release them and by publicising their cases. Al Haj has been adopted by four Spanish media (La Sexta, IPS-Comunica, La Voz del Occidente, and the Colexio de Xornalistas de Galicia) and six Canadian media (Corriere Canadese, Atlas media, Magazine de Saint-Lambert, Mouton Noir, CIBL and Radio Canada Sudbury).

Reporter shot dead while covering protest in Abuja

first_img News NigeriaAfrica Protecting journalists ImpunityViolence Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria News RSF_en Nigerian police officers patrol in the streets of Abuja during clashes with members of the shiite Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) on July 22, 2019. Kola SULAIMON / AFP The media fatality was Precious Owolabi, a trainee journalist under National Youth Service Corps with Channels TV, one of Nigeria’s most popular TV broadcasters. He was hit by a bullet while covering the protest and died later in hospital. Channels TV described him as a “young and promising” reporter.The protest was organized by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a Shia group that has been staging almost daily demonstrations in the capital to press demands for the release of its detained leader. The police opened fire with live rounds after clashing with the demonstrators.President Muhammadu Buhari sent messages of condolences today to Owolabi’s family and to the management and staff of Channels TV, saluting the broadcaster’s commitment to “their professional callings”.“Firing on a journalist while he is reporting is a very serious act and the president’s comforting words will not suffice to render justice to this young reporter gunned down in the course of his work,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We call for a rapid investigation to identify the person who fired the shot. Impunity must not prevail. Until yesterday, no journalist had been killed in Nigeria since 2012.”Nigeria is ranked 120th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.
