The results indicated that Field Marshal Abdul Fatah Al Sisi has won the elections, receiving more than 23 million votes out of 25 million people who voted. His opponent, Mr. Hamdine Sabahi, received just less than one million votes, with another million votes for neither of the two candidates.If we compare these initial election results with those of former President Mohammed Morsi we find Al Sisi received 10 million more votes than former President Morsi, although the same number of people voted in each time (25 million).Many people held peaceful celebrations throughout the night in Tahrir square. They danced and carried the flag of Egypt and posters of Al Sisi. President Al Sisi was the charismatic figure who responded to the cry of millions of Egyptian people who demonstrated on the 30 June 2013 against Morsi. On 3 July 2013 Al Sisi removed Morsi from power and handed over the rule to a civil government. He risked his life to take this important decision and as a result he won the hearts of the majority of Egyptians.Most of the voters went to the poles on the second and third days of voting. However, young people were reluctant to vote because they were worried that the rule of Al Sisi will be similar to that of former President Hosni Mubarak who was also from a military background.I personally think that President Al Sisi is the right choice at this time because Egypt needs a president who can reestablish the security of the country. Without security, tourism and the economic situation will not improve. The new president has to work hard in order to meet the many challenges that are facing Egypt, including the financial situation and the concerns of those who think that Egypt will be ruled in a military-like way.Please pray for Egypt and the new President so that we cross over this difficult time into more stability.+ Mouneer EgyptThe Most Rev.

Addressing the client’s requirements for a space for leisure and entertainment, this pavilion was built to function as a venue to entertain friends and family of a young couple in urban Colombo. The clients wanted to maintain the privacy of their own residence and since their lifestyle involved frequent entertaining requested an additional building on a site away from their residence, in a center city location of Colombo 3. Save this picture!© Palinda Kannangara ArchitectsChoosing to design a garden pavilion instead of a closed building allows for a great degree of openness and enables indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. The pavilion is a double height roofed space that is open to the gardens on both sides. It contains an enclosed timber box that contains the necessary services (pantry, care taker’s room, and toilet). The timber box contains a lounge area at the upper level with a tranquil lily pool. The roof slab of the pavilion is planted. The entry into the building is through the timber box, a dark passage way gives very little idea of the openness and scale of the space encountered within. The entire building is designed for entertainment. The living/ dining areas area open to the gardens. The gnarled Ficus against the cement boundary wall forms a backdrop to the entertainment space, and is a lit sculpture in the evenings. Save this picture!© Palinda Kannangara ArchitectsSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Palinda Kannangara ArchitectsThe use of available materials and technology was an important part of the project.

Woman journalist found with throat cut in southern Libya

first_img June 24, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Libya to go further Receive email alerts RSF_en Reporters Without Borders is shocked to learn that Naseeb Miloud Karfana, a TV journalist based in the southern city of Sabha, was murdered on Thursday 29 May. Her body was found together with her fiancé’s in the city’s northern Al-Hay Al-Jadida district. Her throat had been cut and she appeared to have been tortured.Naseeb had worked for the state-owned TV station Libya Al-Wataniya as its programme coordinators in Sabha for the past eight months, the station’s director, Ali Shaniber, said.Karfana left the TV station at about 7 p.m. with her fiancé, who came to collect her in his car, so that they could attend a friend’s wedding together. When she failed to arrive, her mother contacted the TV station, where an employee confirmed that Karfana had left.The authorities have not as yet released any autopsy reports identifying the exact cause of death of the two victims.Relatives said Karfana and her fiancé had recently received repeated threats from an unidentified person. Reporters Without Borders urges the competent authorities to carry out an impartial investigation without delay to identify the motive for this double murder, giving full consideration to the possibility of a link to Karfana’s work. “It is imperative that those responsible for this shocking murder are quickly found and brought to account, in order to end impunity in Libya,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said.“The environment in which journalists have to work in Libya is becoming increasingly intolerable. According to our tally, there have been more than 60 violations of freedom of information since the start of 2014, including two murders of journalists this week, although the motives for these murders have yet to be established.”Karfana’s murder came just three days after Muftah Buzeid, the editor of the state-owned newspaper Burniq, was gunned down on a central Benghazi street on 26 May (LINK). The situation is now extremely dangerous for journalists in Libya.The government must immediately take concrete and effective measures – executive, legislative and judicial ones – with the aim of containing the growing violence, including violence against the media. The new “free” Libya must accept its national and international obligations as regards freedom of information, expression and opinion.

Desmond boys have a date with destiny

first_imgTWO Limerick secondary school students have developed an invention that could make nights on the town a lot safer for women.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Sixteen-year-olds, Warren Gleeson and Sean Duffy from Desmond College in Newcastlewest came up with a device that prevents spiking of drinks in bars and clubs.The pair worked on the idea to prevent women’s drinks being spiked with date rape drugs such as Rohypnol, LSD and Ketamine.Their research resulted in the production of one of the stand-out projects on show at last week’s BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in Dublin.The gadget is a small, round seal, embossed with a holographic image which can be clearly seen in disco or bar lights.Their teacher, Donal Enright explained that the two fifth year students produced the device to operate in two ways.“Firstly, it’s a deterrent because you put it over the top of your drink and it can be seen. If anyone tries to peel it off, it disintegrates and can’t be put back. There is also a practical application. Under the cap is a bubble and if anyone tries to introduce something through a syringe, the bubble bursts and the person will know their drink has been interfered with”.Mr Enright said that the lads are hoping to produce the devices commercially.“It would be fantastic if maybe the HSE would buy them and give them out for free or if a drinks company were to sponsor the product, they could have their logo on top”.This entry was posted in News by Bernie English.

Once piloted, the programme will be rolled out amongst the five partner institutions leading to the development and launch of a permanent resource that will be available for all staff. The programme will be delivered by ShoutOut, a charity that provides educational programmes in educational institutions in areas such as sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and intersex identity. The announcement today of the gender identity and diversity training programme coincides with Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV), established to show support of trans identities and reject transphobia.

As per a statement issued by the Student-protestors, they had assembled outside the campus, not to protest but to get the Ministry’s order enforced. On June 15, the Labour Ministry of Delhi had directed the University to reinstate all the 55 safai karmcharis. The order stated that the University should “directly deploy” the staff and pay their salaries. As per the students, the University has paid no heed to this order and they had therefore gathered for a dialogue with the administration. It is alleged that the University administration refused to meet the student representative, Ekta Tomar, and did not allow her to enter the campus. Subsequently, it is alleged that the Delhi Police intervened in the matter and threatened to book them under stringent provisions such as Section 144 of the Criminal Procedure Code and Section 188 of the Indian Penal Code. It is alleged that Anuj Yadav (Sub Inspector of PS Dwarka North, Sector 17) arrived in civil dress and started intimidating the peacefully assembled sanitation workers. “The Police were continuously exerting mental pressure on the workers and delegitimizing their concern by saying that they were blocking the gates. Despite there being an assembly of less than 5 people at each of the gates with proper social distancing with a written order in hand, the Police continued to deal roughly with the workers to throw them away off the NLU site,” the students said. As per the students’ statement, the Police forcefully took Neetu Singh Yadav (Workers’ Representative) in custody, and subsequently Ekta Tomar (Student Representative) was taken into custody for allegedly ‘instigating workers to protest’. At the Police Station, it is alleged, Police Officials namely Anuj Yadav and Mahavir Singh made a mockery of the Labour Ministry’s Written Order. “Ekta and Neetu were told by the officials that the Written Order was illegal and ambiguous. That the Labour Minister’s Order had no value. The University’s Executive Council, Governing Council and the Chancellor were the ones who had the decision-making power,” the statement reads. They were later released, after intervention of certain lawyers and activists, with a warning that they would be booked by way of an FIR under Section 188 and 144 if they were found in the vicinity of the University.

Thoughts turn to quilts and birds

first_imgLatest Stories Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sponsored Content My first thought was they must be headed to Hinckley, Ohio, for Buzzard Sunday.The story – the tale – is that many years ago, packs of wolves were killing all the cows, goats and sheep in the area. So the farmers came up with a plan to rid the countryside of the big, bad wolves. They piled the carcasses of the slaughtered livestock in the middle of a big meadow. They supplemented with meat from a rendering plant. That night, the farmers, with guns in hand, hid in the woods that circled the meadow. When the wolves came to feast, the farmers opened fire and massacred the wolves.The next morning, the Sunday after March 15, the buzzards came to clean up the mess. Every year since then, at that time, the buzzards come back to Hinckley, Ohio, with great expectations of another fine feast. Skip Print Article Thoughts turn to quilts and birds By Jaine Treadwell Email the author You Might Like Alabama lacks unified budget We in Alabama are only one of a handful of states that do not work off of one unified budget…. read more Published 10:00 pm Friday, March 8, 2013 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Even though, I never saw a buzzard except the one that had been caged for the occasion that’s not to say the buzzards don’t come. I just never saw them but I did so much enjoy Buzzard Sunday, a rite of spring in the hinterlands of Ohio.There are songs about buzzards and the site of them brought one to mind, “Did the buzzards come, yes ma’am!” It also brought to mind a rhyme about the sighting of buzzards: One for sorrow. Two for joy. Three for a letter. Four for a boy. Five for silver. Six for gold. Seven for secrets that’s never been told.That rhyme reminded me of that wonderful and legendary storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham. She told that she was driving through the mountains and saw a lone buzzard circling in the distance. One for sorrow. But, if the buzzard flaps its wings, the bad omen will not stand.Kathryn said she pulled off the side of the road to wait for the buzzard to flap its wings. A state trooper spied her and stopped to ask if he could be of assistance. No, she said. She was just waiting for a buzzard to flap its wings. Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration By The Penny Hoarder Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Thinking of Kathryn made me remember my disappointment in having to miss the Gee’s Bend quilters at the museum last Saturday. I was away at a storytelling festival. Kathryn Windham wrote about the people of Gee’s Bend long before they became famous. She told many stories about the Gee’s Bend people who lived isolated from the world in that big bend of the Alabama River.In the early days, the Gee’s Bend quilters sold their quilts for a few dollars. When they were discovered and their quilting was recognized as art, the prices skyrocketed.At Kathryn’s home one day, she showed me a quilt the Gee’s Bend quilters had given her. She said that she was going to be buried wrapped in that quilt.Surprised, I said, “Kathryn, do you know how much that quilt is worth?”She smiled and quipped.“Well, you CAN take it with you.”Scrambled thoughts make sense when one leads to another. Sometimes thoughts get scrambled up in my head and don’t seem to have any rhyme or reason.Most of my serious thinking is done when it’s just me and Maybelle out on the open road. Actually, I can even verbalize my thoughts at times like that because Maybelle is not a gossip.Driving out in the country the other day, the sky before me looked like the freeway to a buzzard reunion. Forty, fifty or more buzzards clouded the sky.
