The ruling was “absurd” and contrary to the principle of protection of sources, it said. May 10, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemned an order made against investigative journalist Maciej Mikolajczyk, of the satirical weekly Nie, to hand over his computer hard disk to the courts by 5 September.Mikolajczyk was summoned to the Warsaw prosecutor’s office on 31 August 2005 and told by prosecutor Beata Kaszewska to produce the disk or risk a prison sentence of three months to five years, under Article 239.1 of the Polish criminal code.The disk is wanted in connection with a judicial investigation into a complaint by European Member of Parliament Bogdan Golik, of the Polish people’s party Samoobrona, for violation of confidentiality of correspondence between him and a journalist on local weekly newspaper Panorama Leszczynska, Rafal Makowski. Mikolajczyk disclosed the contents of the letters in an article carried by Nie in December 2004 that suggested that Golik was regularly paying Rafal Makowski to write favourable articles about him.”This case is full of things to object to: first of all the principle since we strongly defend the right to protect journalistic sources, but in addition to this the situation is alarmingly absurd,” said Reporters Without Borders.Police went to the journalist’s home on 30 June 2005 and, citing a 23 June ruling by Prosecutor Kaszewska, ordered Mikolajczyk to give them his computer hard disk. When he refused, police put the disk into cardboard box that they sealed and left there.Since the disk contained information and unpublished material including the Nie correspondent’s contacts, Mikolajczyk has been deprived of the means to continue his journalistic work.

In some of the hardest-hit states, including California and New York, officials are placing restrictions on landlords issuing evictions.Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti issued an executive order that no landlord can evict a residential tenant in the City of Los Angeles during the local emergency period. Tenants will have up to six months following the expiration of the local emergency period to repay any back due rent. The LA City Council is considering expanding the moratorium to 12 months.Meanwhile, in Oakland County, Michigan, County Treasurer Andy Meisner announced that the county will not be issuing residential or business foreclosure notices through the end of 2020. According to Meisner, the county will not be foreclosing on homes or businesses that do not make the March 31 tax deadline.Recently, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak announced an emergency directive putting a moratorium on all evictions and foreclosures in his state. The directive will be in effect for 90 days and applies to both residential and commercial tenants.”This is not the time to put people out on the streets,” Sisolak said. “This is also not the time to evict small business owners who have been hit by the economic fallout of this pandemic.”On a national level, Wells Fargo & Company has announced that it has suspended residential property foreclosure sales, evictions and involuntary auto repossessions, as part of additional comprehensive steps to help customers, communities and employees grappling with the impact of COVID-19. Additionally, the Wells Fargo Foundation will increase its charitable donations to $175 million to help address food, shelter, small business and housing stability, as well as to provide help to public health organizations.center_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Millions of Americans could be grounded from flying because of REAL ID deadline

first_imgDepartment of Motor Vehicles(NEW YORK) — As more Americans return to the skies for trips across the county, federal and state officials are sounding the alarm about a looming deadline that could potentially ground tens of million flyers.Starting Oct. 1, any flyer over 18 will need to have a REAL ID-issued driver’s license or another federally approved identification card if they are going to fly domestically. The regulation was put in place in 2005 to ensure travelers’ identity in light of the 9/11 attacks, according to the Department of Homeland Security, but only recently did all 50 states come into compliance.With less than six months left until that deadline, the country is far from meeting the new standards, as only 43% of the U.S.-issued driver’s licenses are REAL ID-compliant, according to DHS data.Tori Emerson Barnes, the executive vice president of public affairs and policy at the U.S. Travel Association, a non-profit that represents the travel industry, said there are millions of Americans who either aren’t aware of the new rules or are stuck in a backlog at their local department of motor vehicles (DMV) that have been hindered by the pandemic.“The last thing the air industry and travelers need is another delay,” Barnes told ABC News.As the federal government mulls calls from governors to delay the deadline, which was already pushed back by a year due to the coronavirus, experts say states need to promote the REAL ID license upgrades and streamline the process as soon as possible.Sluggish startREAL ID licenses require more proof of identity, such as a Social Security card, tax form or pay stub. In some states, REAL ID compliant licenses are the only form of licenses given out to residents, while others are optional.Licenses that are REAL ID-compliant can be identified with a star or wording on the card that indicates it is compliant.Travelers who wish to fly after the Oct. 1 deadline and do not have a REAL ID can use a U.S. passport or U.S. military ID to fly, according to DHS. Passengers with Enhanced IDs, which are used to travel to Canada, Mexico and some Caribbean nations without a passport and require additional proof of identification such as a birth certificate, are also accepted.Ian Grossman, a spokesman for the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, which represents DMV officials throughout the country, told ABC News there were a number of factors behind the slow rollout of the new IDs.Although Congress approved the new rules in 2005, several states didn’t begin to issue REAL IDs to their residents until years later.Some state legislators and even federal leaders on both sides of the aisle challenged the act for concerns that it infringed on people’s privacy and created problems for immigrants who may not have the necessary paperwork to get a license and fly.The first states were certified for REAL ID in 2012 and it took the next eight years for all 50 states to be compliant, according to DHS records.“The [states] that have a higher rate of enrollment are Georgia, Indiana, Nebraska, South Carolina and Maryland, because they were among the first states to offer it,” Grossman told ABC News.DHS said the pandemic was a setback for rollout as DMVs had to cancel all of their in-person appointments and applications. Fortunately, the federal government announced in March 2020 that their original October 2020 deadline for air passengers to have a REAL ID would be postponed by a year, due to the pandemic.Some reliefAs of April 8, 118 million of the 274 million state-issued driver’s licenses in the country and IDs are REAL ID-compliant, according to DHS.“The national adoption rate is increasing approximately .5% a month today, as compared to over 1% a month prior to the COVID-19 pandemic,” the agency said in a statement.With DMV offices now open to in-person appointments with smaller capacity, applications have begun to increase, but there is still a backlog, according to Grossman.DHS officials said they are working with states to promote the REAL ID and help them guide license holders to get their cards updated. It also has an online portal that provides users with answers and information on the deadline and links users to their local DMV.Barnes also said that airports and airlines have been informing customers who have returned to flying in the recent months about the REAL ID deadline.“Some airlines and airports are informing them at the point of booking,” she said.Congress did provide states with assistance as part of its omnibus spending bill at the end of 2020. States now have the option of accepting documents for REAL ID applications, such as photo ID, online to speed up the process, according to the new rules.“That technology is already available however some states have laws in their books where they needed a piece of paper in order to process the REAL ID application,” Grossman said. “The omnibus bill gave them the money and approval to do it.”Calls for more timeWhile Grossman said he’s optimistic the federal outreach and new tech will make a difference in speeding up REAL ID applications, he said there is very little time to get a majority of Americans approved.“It will take some time for DMVs to build up that new technology to process documents online,” he said.Barnes said her organization and other travel groups have also been in contact with the federal government and the White House about a possible extension and she emphasized that the people who will most be affected will be the casual travelers who don’t know about the new regulation.And with a post-pandemic demand soaring as more people are vaccinated and travel restrictions eased, Barnes warned that millions of adults might be grounded in the fall.Barnes said the number of people screened at airports has been steadily increasing every month and she predicted there will be a large demand come Thanksgiving and the holidays.“I do think more people are becoming aware of the REAL ID deadline, but there are many who don’t and others who are still waiting to get their application processed,” she said.State leaders are also calling for another extension.On April 8, the National Governors Association, which represents all 50 governors, put out a statement stating, “the prolonged impact of COVID-19 may require an extension,” and called on Americans to apply for the license if they don’t already have one.A spokesperson for DHS told ABC News in a statement that the agency “is assessing the necessity to move the enforcement date.”Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Carbon and nitrogen dynamics in a small pond in the maritime Antarctic

first_imgSmall ponds and puddles are extremely common throughout the ice-free areas of the maritime Antarctic. The carbon and nitrogen dynamics in a typical pond on Livingston Island, South Shetland Islands were investigated during summer 1991. The pond vegetation consisted of a benthic mat of cyanobacteria, diatoms and chlorophytes. The mat was not limited by nutrient availability, both phosphorus and nitrogen being available in the overlying water and N:P ratios in both the water and the mat indicating a roughly balanced supply. Maximal rates of carbon fixation of 0.1–0.2 mgC g−1 dry weight h−1 were similar to those of other perennial Antarctic mat communities. Productivity appeared to be limited by physical factors, but the effects of irradiance and temperature could not be separated. Although carbon fixation rates were low, carbon loss processes were minimal leading to an accumulation of material in the mat approximating to one doubling per year. Atmospheric nitrogen fixation was not a significant component of the nitrogen budget of the pond, accounting for only 0.1 % of the nitrogen accumulation by the mat. Nitrogen uptake was largely from dissolved nitrogen sources, in particular as dissolved organic nitrogen. It is concluded that ephemeral water bodies may play a significant role in the nutrient dynamics of maritime Antarctic ecosystems.last_img read more

Two New Cases of EHV-1 Found in Ontario, Total Now Four

first_imgOne case is located in Peel region and involved an 18 year-old gelding that had to be euthanized. His clinical signs included severe incoordination of hind limbs, progressing to being down with an inability to get up.The second case, located in Niagara, involves a seven-year-old mare. Her symptoms include progressing to being down with an inability to get up and difficulty urinating.Both facilities are under veterinary supervision and the farm managers have implemented biosecurity procedures and movement restrictions. There are now three equine facilities in the province with a confirmed EHV-1 infection causing neurologic disease.On February 4, OMAFRA was notified of two confirmed cases of equine herpes virus-1 (EHV-1) infection at an equine facility in the Regional Municipality of Halton. Both horses had a fever and were tested as part of a follow-up investigation into the deaths of three horses at the facility. These three horses were euthanized between January 29 and February 3 following the sudden onset of severe incoordination and being down and unable to rise. The facility is under veterinary supervision and the manager has implemented strict biosecurity measures and movement restrictions.It is believed that the highly-contagious virus may have also been transferred to a farm in western Quebec via a recently-purchased horse that shipped in Jan. 15 from a Milton, ON. The farm in Quebec is now experiencing an outbreak of EHV-1 which has already resulted in the deaths of two horses and the infection of 18 others to date.
