first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 February 23, 2018 at 5:48 am Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 State of the art vehicle hits the streets tomorrow at Fire Station #5 Grand OpeningFrom the City of Apopka Meet the new ambulance that will begin service Friday with the grand opening of Apopka Fire Station #5.This vehicle is equipped with some of the latest safety enhancements for patients and paramedics. First, the patient compartment has an additional two feet of space for paramedics to work. Exterior storage doors allow patient backboards to be pulled from both sides of the ambulance – older vehicles require paramedics to remove backboards from the left side while often standing near moving roadway traffic.Interior storage cabinets and drawers are more crash resistant, preventing equipment from falling onto vehicle occupants. Last year, the fire department began equipping ambulances with safer Stryker stretchers that have hydraulic lift systems to reduce strain on paramedics when lifting patients. A Power Load guides those stretchers into ambulances and locks them into place, keeping the patient from moving during transport. The newest ambulance has a bolstered air conditioning system that can maintain interior temperatures 24 hours a day.The fire department was the first in Central Florida to equip ambulances with the latest LUCAS 3 chest compression systems that are designed to improve outcomes of sudden cardiac arrest victims and improve operations for the firefighters. They lock around the patients’ upper torso and create perfectly timed compressions at a rate of 102 beats per minute with the proper amount of pressure to help quickly improve the possible outcomes of restoring a regular heartbeat. Some of the LUCAS 3 devices were purchased with a $37,575 grant from Orange County EMS Office of the Medical Directors Office.Ambulances have car safety seats for children – often needed to accompany an injured parent or adult. Now Apopka’s ambulances also have safety devices to secure injured infant patients onto stretchers while paramedics work to help them.The Apopka Fire Department was the first fire department in Florida to begin ambulance transport in 1966. The department has remained a leader in emergency medical services as it enters the 52nd year of ambulance service to the citizens of Apopka.Editor’s Note: Photos from the City of Apopka You have entered an incorrect email address!

The design objective to make the house appear taller than what is permissible thus became the starting point of #6.Save this picture!© Beton BrutThe permissible building volume is sliced by large canopies, with floor lines masked behind ‘bands’ of ventilation blocks formed by the amalgamation of clerestory windows and parapet walls in this building material, resulting in a house with multiple stacked volumes. The placement of ventilation blocks of diminishing sizes from the largest modules within the lowest ‘band’ to the smallest modules in the topmost ‘band’, accentuates the building height through false perspectives.Save this picture!© Beton BrutVentilation blocks and deep overhangs, formed by large canopies, are common building material and element in this region evolved from a response to the climatic conditions.

first_imgNews Organisation SyriaMiddle East – North Africa News RSF_en March 8, 2021 Find out more May 18, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Kilo faces life imprisonment for signing joint statement on relations with Lebanon Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria March 12, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law News Follow the news on Syria News Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call for the release of journalist Michel Kilo today after learning that he faces the possibility of life imprisonment on charges of stirring up “religious and racial divisions,” publishing “mendacious and exaggerated reports with the aim of discrediting the government” and “defaming the president and the courts.”Kilo was arrested on 14 May after signing a joint statement by intellectuals from Syria and Lebanon called “Beirut-Damascus, Damascus-Beirut,” which advocates a change in relations between the two countries. The Syrian authorities branded it as a “provocation” and as “inference in domestic affairs” and said “the Syrian intellectuals are mistaken in blaming Syria for the deterioration in the situation in Lebanon.”Kilo has been an emblematic figure in the struggle for democracy in Syria for more than 30 years, and his arrest has set off a wave of protests in the Arab world, especially in Lebanon. In an open letter to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, former Lebanese prime minister Salim Hoss said: “We think that a president such as you, known for his culture, should not allow a citizen to be arrested for his opinions. We ask to intervene and to obtain the release of Mr. Kilo and all the other political prisoners.”The Syrian authorities yesterday carried out more arrests of people who signed the “Beirut-Damascus, Damascus-Beirut” statement. Those detained included lawyer Anouar Bounni and several other human rights activists.————————————————————————–15.05.2006 Authorities arrest journalist and human rights activist Michel KiloReporters Without Borders today called for the immediately release of Michel Kilo, a Syrian journalist, human rights activist and political scientist, who was arrested yesterday in Damascus. His wife said he had not been seen since he got a phone call in the afternoon ordering him to report to a police station.“Censorship, harassment, threats and arbitrary arrests – the Syrian authorities seem to stop at nothing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “After Ali Abdallah’s arrest on 23 March, it is now the turn of Kilo – an emblematic figure in Syria’s struggle for democracy – to be targeted by the repression against journalists and human rights activists.”The press freedom organisation added: “We are all the more worried as we do not know what charges have been brought against him or where he is being held.”Ammar al-Qorabi of the National Organisation for Human Rights in Syria said he thought Kilo had been arrested for signing a petition by 274 leading intellectuals, journalists and artists from both Syria and Lebanon urging a radical reform of relations between the two countries.Called “Beirut-Damascus, Damascus-Beirut,” the joint statement condemns “any attempt to impose economic or other sanctions on the Syrian people” and advocates the need to “respect and consolidate the sovereignty and independence of Lebanon and of Syria as part of institutionalised and transparent relations that serve the interests of both peoples and reinforce them against Israeli aggression and US hegemony.”It also stresses “the need for definitive Syrian recognition of Lebanon’s independence,” adding that “the first steps in this direction should consist of a demarcation of borders and an exchange of ambassadors.”An advocate of democratic reform in Syria, Kilo writes for the Lebanese dailies An-Nahar and Al-Safir, as well as Al Quds Al Arabi, an Arabic-language newspaper based in London. He also heads Hourriyat, a Damascus-based press freedom organisation launched last year.In addition to fellow journalist Ali Abdallah, three cyber-dissidents – Massoud Hamid, Habib Saleh and Mohammed Ghanem – are currently imprisoned in Syria.President Bashar El-Assad is on the Reporters Without Borders list of 38 press freedom predators. to go further Reporters Without Borders reiterated its call for the release of journalist Michel Kilo today after learning that he faces the possibility of life imprisonment on charges of stirring up “religious and racial divisions,” publishing “mendacious and exaggerated reports with the aim of discrediting the government” and “defaming the president and the courts.” Receive email alerts SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists February 3, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

first_imgSajedeh Arabsorkhi is the daughter of the former political prisoner Fazlollah Arabsorkhi, a leading member of an Iranian reformist party.Marzieh Rasouli was taken back to prison on 8 July to serve a two-year custodial sentence and receive 50 lashes. On 21 June, Rihaneh Tabatabai, a former journalist with the daily Shargh sentenced to a year’s imprisonment, was also placed behind bars. Mahnaz Mohammadi, a journalist and documentary-maker, was admitted to prison on 7 June to begin a five-year sentence.Reporters Without Borders is particularly worried about the fate of Saba Azarpeyk, a journalist for the monthly Téjarat-é-Farda and the daily newspaper Etemad, who was arrested on 28 May. Where she is being held and on whose authority she was arrested have not been made known, in breach of national and international laws. Her trial took place on 20 and 21 July in a Tehran revolutionary court, in the absence of her legal representive. July 28, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Iran is world’s leading jailer of female journalists and netizens News Her lawyer said he was not informed of the date of the hearing, but he understood the trial was linked to a prior arrest. Azarpeyk was one of the victims of “Black Sunday”, a repressive operation in January 2013 against media workers in which 19 journalists were arrested.According to information received by Reporters Without Borders, the journalist has come under extreme pressure because of her investigations into news organizations that are run and financed by the Revolutionary Guards and agents of the ministry of intelligence.The two security organizations, which are close to Iran’s judicial authorities, have kept the journalist in solitary confinement at a secret location for the past 50 days, in breach of all national and international laws. Her family were allowed to see her briefly during her trial and were shocked at her weakened physical and mental condition. Foreign nationals in prisonThree of the 10 women news providers currently in prison in Iran are foreign nationals, including the American photographer arrested on 22 July. Roya Saberi Negad Nobakht, who has dual British and Iranian nationality, and Farideh Shahgholi, a German-Iranian netizen, were arrested for their activities on social media, including Facebook. Up to now, neither the British nor German authorities have made official statements about the detentions.Nobakht, 47, has been held in custody since October last year and was sentenced to 20 years’ imprisonment by a Tehran revolutionary court on 27 May this year on charges of “plotting to commit crimes against security and insulting Islam” for writing on Facebook that everything in Iran was “too Islamic”. On the same day, seven other netizens were given prison sentences, including Naghmeh Shahi Savandi Shirazi, jailed for seven years and 91 days. to go further News The arrest on 22 July of two journalists and a photographer, including the Tehran correspondent of the Washington Post and his Iranian wife, brings to 65 the number of news providers behind bars in Iran. They include 10 women, of whom three are foreign nationals, making Iran the world’s leading jailer of female journalists and netizens. Reporters Without Borders is extremely concerned by this wave of summonses and arrests aimed mainly at women working in the media, seven of whom have received prison terms of between six months and 20 years.The Washington Post’s correspondent Jason Rezaian, who has dual US and Iranian nationality, and his Iranian journalist wife Yeganeh Salehi were arrested at their Tehran home. Rezaian, 38, has been the Post’s correspondent in the Iranian capital since 2012. Salehi works for the newspaper The National, based in the United Arab Emirates. Shahgholi began a three-year sentence on 22 May. Having lived in Germany for 25 years, she was arrested in 2011 during a visit to relatives in Iran. She was charged with anti-government publicity and insulting Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei for comments she made on Facebook, and was unlawfully convicted by the Tehran Revolutionary Court. “With 65 journalists and netizens in prison, Iran is still one of the world’s biggest prisons for people working in the media,” said Reza Moïni, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Iran, Afghanistan and Tajikistan desk. “The country is also the leading jailer of women journalists and netizens. The justice authorities, in collusion with the Revolutionary Guards and the ministry of intelligence, flout the rights of women who work in the media. “Nothing came of President Hassan Rohani’s promises to free all prisoners of conscience. His silence makes it easier to crack down on freedom of information. It is his duty to ensure the constitution is applied and he is responsible for the fate of everyone on Iranian soil.” Iran is one of the world’s most repressive countries as regards freedom of information. It is ranked 173rd of 180 countries in the 2014 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders. After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists A freelance Iranian-American photographer who works for various news organizations including the Washington Post was also arrested, together with her non-journalist husband. Her family did not want to disclose her identity. The whereabouts of the couple and the reasons for their arrest are not known.Sajedeh Arabsorkhi was summoned on 18 July by the sentence enforcement court at Evin prison to begin serving a one-year prison term for anti-government propaganda. Since she returned to Iran last September, she has been called in for questioning several times by intelligence agents of the Revolutionary Guards.“She was sentenced in absentia while she was living in France,” her mother said. “She left Iran legally, with no proceedings against her. The problems began on her return to the country.” March 18, 2021 Find out more June 9, 2021 Find out more IranMiddle East – North Africa February 25, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists Ten women who work in the media are currently behind bars in the Islamic Republic Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Organisation News IranMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en News Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Iranlast_img read more

first_imgEmail Advertisement 44 newborn babies at Limerick maternity hospital tested positive for the MRSA ‘superbug’THE National Collective of Community based Women’s Networks is calling on the Government to ease COVID-19 restrictions in maternity services and allow birthing partners to be present at all pregnancy related appointments, scans, full labour and births as soon as possible.This request has come on foot of many of the 17 NCCWN projects nationally being contacted by upset and vulnerable women and pregnant people being left completely alone during their pregnancy appointments, labour and in some cases giving birth with no support.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up There have also been instances where people have had to receive the devastating news that their pregnancy is not viable and have had to miscarry without a loved one present.NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network staff, who work on the ground with women experiencing multiple forms of marginalisation and disadvantage, are incredibly concerned for the wellbeing of anyone currently pregnant or who becomes pregnant in the near future and is left with the added stress and fear of having no support when engaging with maternity services.Additionally, NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network are asking concerned members of the public to get involved in their letter writing campaign and contact their local TDs via post or email to let them know that this treatment of pregnant people is unjust and will no longer be tolerated. Information on this campaign and a template letter can be found on the NCCWN website and on their social media platforms.NCCWN Limerick Women’s Network Coordinator, Edel Geraghty, said, “We were very concerned when we realised that the new Plan for Living with COVID-19 did not include any mention of the easing of restrictions in maternity services or the wellbeing of pregnant people.“We are especially worried for women who may be extra vulnerable at this such as; those who do not speak English, are from ethnic minorities and anyone with medical or underlying conditions, along with first time parents.“Pregnant people need and should have a supportive partner with them throughout their pregnancy, expecting them to do everything alone seems callous and should not be allowed to continue.” she added.

first_imgFelix Westerén, a second-year PPEist, told Cherwell, “The event itself was good, and gave us a comprehensive view of where Miliband stands now.“Still although he can identify the issues facing Labour and their root causes quite lucidly, he seems to be as clueless as everyone else about how they can be overcome.”Miliband’s former opponent at the ballot box, David Cameron, was also spotted in Oxford this week, visiting his old college Brasenose and the Blavatnik School of Government.According to Matt Burwood, President-Elect of OUCA, Cameron’s visit was “not entirely surprising”, as he was “trying to discover what comes after politics by returning to where it all began.“Turning a corner into Brasenose’s central quad, I was suddenly on collision course with the most recognisable face in recent British politics, and the party leader whose brand of liberal “One Nation” Conservatism first drew me to the Party,” he said.“A chance to meet him without crowds in a re- laxed environment was quite the unexpected treat.” In an event at Nuffield College yesterday, Ed Miliband revealed that he has no plans to leave the House of Commons, and intends to stay and remain involved in parliamentary politics.The seminar, which was advertised on the Department of Politics and International Relations lecture list for Michaelmas 2016, was attended by between 150 and 160 students.The event was organised by Lord Wood and John Cruddas, both former staffers of Labour governments and visiting fellows at Nuffield, and is the first of a series of high-profile Labour MP speaking events on ‘The Future of the Left’, taking place in even weeks of Michaelmas Term.Miliband was interviewed on stage by Steve Richards, chief political columnist of The Independent. Richards asked him whether he would remain in the Commons for the foreseeable future, and take a “high-profile” role in public de- bates, as he did in support of Remain during the EU referendum campaign.Miliband replied that he is “not going anywhere” and has “no plans to leave Parliament”.last_img read more
