Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the warped methods used to prolong the pre-trial detention of journalists beyond the legal limit in Egypt, where Badr Mohamed Badr, an Al Jazeera journalist held since March 2017, resurfaced in court yesterday after being missing within the prison system for the past three months. Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution February 6, 2021 Find out more Held preventively since March 2017 on charges of “membership of a terrorist group” and “spreading false news,” Badr should have been freed in March 2019 because, in theory at least, Egyptian law limits preventive detention to a maximum of two years.A court approved his release in late November 2019 but it was not carried out. Instead he went missing on 3 December, the date when the prison administration stopped providing any information about his case, leaving his family without any news of him for nearly three months.He finally resurfaced yesterday when he was brought before a Cairo security court on the grounds that he is to be the subject of a new investigation on suspicion of crimes that were not, however, specified.“As if nothing untoward had ever happened, the Egyptian justice system has reversed its decision to free Badr Mohamed Badr and has brought him back to light after a disappearance of several months,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “To keep journalists in prison and circumvent the two-year limit on preventive detention, they reset the counter to zero by opening a new investigation.”The same procedure was used with another Al Jazeera journalist, Mahmoud Hussein, whohas been held since December 2016. The authorities said they were going free him in May 2019 but his release did not take place and they finally said it had been cancelled on thegrounds that a new investigation had been ordered.Other journalists, including Moataz Wednan, Hassan Al-Banna Mubarak and Mostafa Al-Aasar, have also been held for more than two years in violation of the two-year limit on detention without trial.Egypt is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

The 2017 Tedeschi Trucks Band Beacon Theatre residency continues tonight with a very special TTB & Friends performance featuring the North Mississippi Allstars in celebration of the band’s milestone 25th anniversary at the ornate and historic venue.You can hear full audio from the performance below, via taper edtyre2 on archive.org:For more information on TTB’s upcoming shows, head to the band’s website.SETLIST: Tedeschi Trucks Band | The Beacon Theatre | New York, NY | 10/10/17Set: Are You Ready?, Made Up Mind, Do I Look Worried, Bird on the Wire, Anyday, Right on Time, Sweet Mama Janisse, Can’t Find My Way Home > Had To Cry, Ball and Chain, Done Somebody Wrong, Laugh About It, Sticks and Stones, How Blue Can You Get?, Idle WindEncore: Let Me Roll It, For My Friend, Sweet Virginia[Cover Photo via Derek McCabe] On Tuesday night, Tedeschi Trucks Band returned to the Beacon Theatre in New York for the first of two mid-week shows during the band’s seventh annual residency at the famed Upper West Side theater. After performing one concert with an opener (The Greyhounds on 10/6) and one two-set “Evening with” show (the following night on 10/7), the band threw it back to their summer 2017 “Wheels of Soul” tour with an opening set and collaborations from The Wood Brothers.Tedeschi Trucks Band Delivers 2nd Stellar Show In A Beacon Run “Bound For Glory” [Videos]Following their emotional, all-TTB celebration of the full band’s reunion on Saturday night, the band welcomed a number of surprise sit-ins during their headlining set. After beginning the set with favorite originals (“Made Up Mind,” “Do I Look Worried,” etc.) and well-received cover staples (Sly & The Family Stone‘s “Are You Ready?”; Derek and the Dominos‘ “Anyday,” and a particularly powerful rendition of Leonard Cohen‘s “Bird on the Wire”), ever graceful frontwoman Susan Tedeschi welcomed the evening’s first sit-in: Jimmy Vivino. The longtime Conan O’Brien bandleader helped lead the band through improv-laden takes on a pair of tunes (“Can’t Find My Way Home”; “Had To Cry Today”) by Blind Faith, the short-lived 1969 supergroup comprised of Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood, and Ric Grech.Watch Jimmy Vivino join Tedeschi Trucks Band for a pair of Blind Faith tunes at the Beacon via Sean Roche:As Vivino exited the stage, Oliver Wood replaced him, helping the band through “Ball and Chain” from their 2011 debut, Revelator, and sticking around for a fiery cover of Elmore James‘ “Done Somebody Wrong.” “Laugh About It” and Titus Turner‘s “Sticks and Stones” followed, before an excellent one-two punch of blues standard “How Blue Can You Get?” and a spacey, Allman-inflected jam on TTB favorite “Idle Wind” closed the set.However, there were still plenty of surprises left to come during the encore. First, Susan welcomed The Wood Brothers to the stage once again to assist the band in a rendition of Wings‘ “Let Me Roll It.” The cover is being played with increased frequency of late, likely due to the fact that Tedeschi’s soulful vocals blow its lid off every time it’s played. With the Woods still onstage, Susan welcomed “our good friend Marcus King,” who led the now 15+ strong collective of musicians through a slinky rendition of Bill Withers‘ “For My Friend.” King then stuck around as Oliver Wood lent his sweet, sweet vocals to The Rolling Stones‘ “Sweet Virginia,” another incredible cover that went into full rotation during the bands’ joint tour this summer.You can watch fan-shot footage of the entire encore, including “Let Me Roll It,” “For My Friend,” “Sweet Virginia” ft.

His 9.58 record at the world championships in Berlin in 2009 was an even bigger sensation. Rio de Janeiro, Brazil | AFP | Factfile on Usain Bolt after his victory in the 4x100m relay with Jamaica at the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics Friday: 2015 – World Championships – 100m, 200m, 4x100m gold At the world youth championships in 2001, he was entered for the 200m but failed to make the finals. His coaches were often frustrated at his reluctance to train and his practical jokes. On top of his record-equalling nine athletics gold medals, Bolt, who will be 30 on Sunday, is confident, relaxed and supremely connected with the crowds he attracts wherever he goes. When Usain Bolt crosses the finish line and starts pounding his chest, it resonates with the public around the world. Career highlights: Bolt set his first 100m world record (9.72sec) in May 2008 in New York. The Jamaican then stormed the Beijing Olympics with his first 100m, 200m, relay treble. The world was forced to take notice of his chest-beating. Share on: WhatsApp Weight: 94kg (207lb) “I enjoy showing them and giving them the joy I get out of doing this because they give me the energy to do it so I’m always hungry.” 2009 – World Championships – 100m, 200m, 4x100m gold But at the age of 15 he was already 1.96 metres (6ft 5in) and at the world junior championships in 2002 he won the 200m. He is one of just a handful of athletes to have won world titles at junior, youth and senior levels. 2016 – Olympic Games – 100m, 200m gold, 4x100m gold At the 2013 world championships in Moscow, with heavy rain falling, Bolt mimed putting up an umbrella and appropriately lightning bolts lit up the sky around the stadium. The after-effects of a leg injury meant he did not get past the first round in the 200m at the 2004 Athens Olympics, where his Rio rival Justin Gatlin won the 100m. Name: Usain St. Leo Bolt 2011 – World Championships – 200m, 4x100m gold After completing the ‘triple triple’ of Olympic sprint titles in Rio on Friday, Bolt summed it up by saying: “There you go. I’m the greatest.” Athletics bosses must wish he could stay longer. Bolt has said he will hang up his spikes after next year’s world championships in London. “One day, I left him on the bed and when I came back he was close to falling off, so from here I was saying, ‘What kind of child he is?” she recalled. Bolt has maintained his common touch with the crowds through all this. With each major win he has deflected attention away from bad news for track and field. In Beijing it was the doping controversy surrounding women’s sprint star Marion Jones and her boyfriend Tim Montgomery. Gatlin was unable to defend his title as he was serving an initial eight-year doping ban, which was reduced to four. The Olympics is going to miss the Lightning Bolt pose that has lit up the last three Games at a time when athletics desperately needs a hero. Bolt has made it clear why he feels obliged to give something back to the spectators.

His mother seems to think that the young Bolt, who will retire after next year’s world championships, was born to run. Nationality: Jamaican Other rivals have also been tainted and fallen by the wayside. 100m – 9.58sec (Berlin, 16/08/2009) 200m – 19.19sec (Berlin, 20/08/2009) 2012 – Olympic Games – 100m, 200m, 4x100m gold By the age of 12, Bolt was the fastest in his school. “He was always on top,” she said. 2008 – Olympic Games – 100m, 200m, 4x100m gold medals World records: Born in Trelawny parish near Montego Bay — where a host of sprinters including the shamed Ben Johnson also come from — Bolt was something special from the start, according to Jennifer Bolt. A school cricket coach urged him to try track and field and his talent gradually grew, though as in his races his progression was not always fast out of the blocks. Born: 21/8/1986 (29) But after his 4x100m triumph in Rio on Friday, the Rio crowd celebrated in the knowledge that they were witnessing the departure of a legend. 4x100m relay – (London, 11/08/2012 w/Yohan Blake, Michael Frater, Nesta Carter) “A lot of people come out to see what I’m going to do today, tomorrow and it’s fun for them,” he said.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, who is 95, has been hospitalized after another fall at his home in Plains, Georgia.Carter apparently suffered “a minor pelvic fracture” yesterday, but remains in good spirits and looks forward to recovering at home.Carter recently fell at his home earlier this month, leaving the 95-year-old with 14 stitches and a black eye. Despite that, he still showed up to help build a home with Habitat for Humanity the next day in Nashville, Tennessee. He used a cane when he rallied volunteers that morning.
Brightline executive say they expect to more than double the system’s annual ridership in coming years with the addition of stations at Boca Raton, Aventura and PortMiami.According to the company’s recent financial filing, “We believe the three new stations … will contribute over 2 million incremental annual passengers once ridership at these stations ramps up and stabilizes.”The high-speed rail line, which is still being re-branded as Virgin Trains USA, considers the three new stations to be top priorities as it also builds a 170-mile rail extension to Orlando International Airport.Company spokesman Ben Porritt says Brightline determined the passenger figures from “independent and internal ridership studies in addition to traffic software and traffic patterns,” and also based on when the stations become operational and have established track records.Brightline currently has stations in downtown West Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.It is now pursuing marketing partnerships with cruise lines, as the financial filing states, “A large number of cruise passengers originate from points north of Miami and are potential customers for our new train-to-port product.”PortMiami’s cruise passenger traffic is projected to increase from 5.6 million in 2018 to more than 9 million within the next five years.The rail system carried 701,061 riders through last month, according to the filing. That number is more than double the 340,456 passengers from the same period last year.The company has reached preliminary agreements with Miami-Dade County for its new Aventura and PortMiami stations. In addition, the Boca Raton City Council voted unanimously last month to pursue an agreement with Brightline to build a station in the city’s business and shopping district. As part of that deal, the city would pay for a parking garage.Neither the company nor the city mentioned cost figures for the planned Boca Raton station.Brightline says Miami-Dade County will spend about $77 million to buy land and build the Aventura station.As for the PortMiami station, Brightline says it would build the facility on an acre of land for which the company would pay the county millions in rent, according to a memorandum from Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez to commissioners.
A group of scientists at a Norwegian company are working on creating technology they say will stop hurricanes from impacting and devastating areas such as South Florida.The energy is there, the solution is there, it’s just the will,” says Olav Bjørnsund Hollingsæter, CEO of OceanTherm.OceanTherm scientists believe that hurricanes can be stopped by changing the ocean’s surface temperature using pipes.Hollingsæter adds, “We want to lift up the cold water and mix it with the warm water on the surface, thereby reducing the energy source for the hurricanes.”The technology already exists and is currently being used in Norway.The company states it simply needs funding to take that technology to the next level.For that purpose, Hollingsæter and his colleagues in South Florida, meeting with FPL’s parent company, NextEra Energy, among others.They are seeking about $1.5 million to conduct the necessary testing over the next year.If the tests are successful, OceanTherm will try to run a pilot program in Florida and the Gulf of Mexico in 2021, and could be taking out storms as early as 2023.
