4 Things Emergency Room Physicians Wish You Knew

TAGSEmergency RoomsFlorida Hospital – Apopka Previous articleOn this Day: Disneyland OpensNext articleBreaking: 7 Baton Rouge Police Officers Shot Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom From Florida Hospital – ApopkaNearly 9 million children in the United States are treated for injuries in emergency departments every year, and they’re often injuries that can affect them for a lifetime, says Safe Kids Worldwide.Mitch Maulfair, DO, and Jesse Caron, MD, emergency medicine physicians at Florida Hospital, discuss four common items, in and around your house, injuries they see in the ER, and how you can protect those you love.1. Swimming Pools: A swimming pool may be the most attractive hazard imaginable to a child and there is no shortage of them in Florida. Sadly, drowning is the second leading cause of injury-related deaths in children in the US.“Even children who can swim are at risk of drowning, which is why you should never leave your kids without adult supervision. Dangerous situations occur when it isn’t clear who is watching the kids and swim lessons don’t substitute for supervision,” says Mitch Maulfair, DO.“One of the biggest misconceptions is that someone who is drowning will splash and scream for help, but that’s not how drowning works. A child in distress will just silently slip under the water. All parents, and anyone with a pool should know CPR, and pools should be enclosed with tall fences with self-closing and -latching gates. Also be aware that small children can drown in an inch of water, so even toilets, bathtubs and buckets can be drowning risks.”2. Trampolines: Kids love trampolines, but trampoline-related injuries are responsible for as many as 92,000 emergency-room visits annually and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends against their use at home, in gym classes and on playgrounds.“The most common trampoline injuries are arm and leg fractures, spinal and head injuries,” says Jesse Caron, MD. “These most often occur because too many kids jumping on the trampoline at any given time and they crash into or land on each other. Putting a net on the trampoline doesn’t make it any safer and may actually lull parents into a false sense of security. There really isn’t any good trampoline and I recommend keeping your kids away from them.”3. Bikes, scooters, skateboards, etc.: We all want our kids to be active as opposed to being tethered to their electronics, but when children are outside on bikes, scooters, skateboards and rip sticks without helmets, the results can be tragic.“In the ER, we frequently see children who fall off bikes or skateboards and receive head injuries because they weren’t wearing a helmet,” says Caron. “As soon as kids are old enough to ride a bike or scooter, they need to wear helmets and parents need to enforce that rule.And parents should remember Florida law requires anyone under 16 who is riding a bike to wear a helmet. A traumatic brain injury can be life-changing, as well as life-threatening. There’s just no excuse: wear a helmet.”4. Automobiles: Teens have an 89.2 percent chance of being involved in a crash during the first three years of driving.“Probably the single-most dangerous thing to a teen might be in the driveway,” says Dr. Maulfair. “Make sure your teen has been taught proper and safe driving techniques and be a good example by paying attention when you drive. Don’t use your phone or text while driving,” says Maulfair. “The car and everything that surrounds it – other drivers, friends, distractions, lack of proper seat belt use – make it potentially the most dangerous situation your teenage child encounters.” UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 You have entered an incorrect email address!

The site is close to the Chungpyong Lake and has hilly mountain on the back and view towards to the lake in front. As most of sites on hills in Korea, Leaning House site also has a mismatch between topography and orientation. Therefore, one of the first things to solve was the siting of the house in the position where it can have southern sunlight as well as view towards the lake. The southern part of the program box is lifted up so that the house can get enough sunlight from the South while the house itself orients to the East following the topography of the site. By lifting the box up, a new space was gained where Glass Box for family room can be inserted.Save this picture!Section 1Topology & TypologyIn the Leaning House, instead of putting a separate structure to the mass, the form of massing works as a structural system. The “Leaning Box” has a frame structure at the envelope of the box, and is supported by the vertical “Glass Box” so that it can eliminate redundant structural element.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThis concept is driven by the architectural vocabulary “Topology & Typology” that PRAUD has been developing. The “Topology & Typology” is a theoretical experiment that is based on Anthony Vidler’s theory on typology. “Topology” focuses on the form of architecture regarding to the relationship between solid and void, while “Typology” develops the system of the building. In short, “Topology & Typology” tries to find out the harmony between the architectural form and the system that can be called as “Contemporarism”, architectural language of contemporary architecture, just as Modernism became the architectural language not the style in a certain period of time.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThird-spaceBy lifting up the program box, a new space “Third Space” is gained. The original requirement from the client was to have bedroom, reading room and living room, and with having the third space, it was able to put a new living room inside and terrace on the outside.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinThe “Third Space” provides more gradation for the house. The outside terrace is not fully public yet not fully private space either. Also, inside living room is also a semi-public area within the house before getting into more private area. This variation in gradation gives deeper spatial quality in a small house project.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanMaterialIt is extremely important in the Leaning House to have the reading of the “box.” In many cases, including projects with Modernism, envelops are treated separate, and therefore, the facade has one design and material, and the roof has another. However, to challenge the convention, the Leaning House treats all surfaces as part of one box and has same material throughout the surfaces with continuous pattern. Zinc is selected to wrap the whole box with a single material as it can be used for roof, siding and exterior ceiling. And continuous diagonal lines across the envelop enhances the reading of the box.Save this picture!© Kyungsub ShinProject gallerySee allShow lessFrank Gehry Claims Today’s Architecture is (Mostly) “Pure Shit”Architecture NewsSalle Polyvalente de Plumergat / Studio 02Selected Projects Share PRAUD, Changbok Yimcenter_img ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard ArchDaily Save this picture!© Kyungsub Shin+ 36 Share “COPY” “COPY” Area:  127 m² Area:  127 m² Photographs PRAUD, Changbok Yim Houses Landscape: last_img read more

House in Kamisawa / Tato Architects

This building is a reconfiguration of a traditional Japanese wooden house. Its wooden frames were exposed after the removal of unnecessary parts. Only by inserting curved walls into it, spatial functions were created. A similar challenge was experienced in the process of designing “Hut with the Arc Wall”, a public toilet in Shodoshima. There, space was defined by a 9mm steel curved wall, which was built under the wooden roof structure by reference to traditional soy sauce factories in that area. An inspiration from cedar barrels of say source was formalized in the curved wall, which showed an aesthetic of self- supporting structure. The only thing to be regrettable was newly built wooden frames. Ideally, it should have been moved from an old house around that area and rebuilt in a new place, but the required tight schedule didn’t allow us to spend time to look for a suitable existing building. However, since then, we have seen it as a distinctive potential for reconfigurations to divide space with curved walls, which is not related to the outer structure.Save this picture!Floor Plan – AfterThe project presented an opportunity to test it, commissioned from a couple who owned a well-preserved one-storey wooden house. The existing house contained many rooms in pure Japanese design, which seemed to be not suitable for a young couple who started a new life there. Unnecessary parts were removed supported structurally, and the curved walls were positioned on the new mortar floor, in which underfloor heating was embedded. Guest room, bathroom, and bed room are surrounded by the curved wall. The rest of the space is devoted to the kitchen, storage, dining and living spaces. A part of the space above the curved wall is used as a loft.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku ShaConstructing the walls with 20mm curved plywood was the solution to the limited budget. However, once the construction started, the much less accuracy of those panels didn’t help to realize the desired space. It forced us to change the construction method to frames of 25mm squared rods sandwiched with curved plywood panels. The expected budget overruns were solved by the builder’s effort.Save this picture!DiagramDoor and window fittings in the existing house were reused. The interior space of the bathroom was finished with fiber reinforced polycarbonate, on which a double layered polycarbonate ceiling was positioned. The exterior wall was newly cladded with burnt cedar boards, and some windows were replaced by wooden fittings. The simple gesture created a new space, while the history of the house remained.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku ShaProject gallerySee allShow lessHanazono Kindergarten and Nursery / HIBINOSEKKEI + Youji no ShiroSelected ProjectsSpace Packing Architecture: The Life and Work of Alfred NeumannEvent Share Projects Architects: Tato Architects Area Area of this architecture project Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku Sha+ 38 Share CopyAbout this officeTato ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationHousesRefurbishmentRenovationJapanPublished on May 20, 2015Cite: “House in Kamisawa / Tato Architects” 19 May 2015.

World in Need – venture philanthropy and corporate social responsibility pioneer?

“WIN is one of three charitable foundations which own the shareholding in a private business – Andrews, a estate agency business with around 40 branches in UK. This charitable ownership was the vision of its founder, Cecil Jackson-Cole, in the 1940s. ‘CJC’ was a Quaker, businessman and philanthropist. His was an early vision of corporate socialresponsibility – running good businesses and putting profit to philanthropic end.“So, WIN does not possess an endowment but rather pursues its mission through the dividend that its shareholding provides – this encourages a business like, enterprising and disciplined culture within WIN which is consistent with its mission.“Since the 1940s, WIN has seen its core mission as setting up new charitable ventures. CJC and his business staff were instrumental in developing Oxfam from the temporary Oxford Committee for Famine Relief. CJC used his personal business acumen, his business profits and his own staff to developOxfam (1950s) and then later Help the Aged (1970s) and ActionAid (1980s).“In the 1993 WIN helped set up Opportunity International UK, and most recently has been the primary investor in Spire Trust and Caxton Trust (educational NGOs), BasicNeeds (a new initiative in mental health and development) and Street UK (UK microfinance).“We have recently started to describe the way we work in contemporary language of venture capital and social entrepreneurism. The WIN model involves:investment in start upidentifying an ‘entrepreneurial’ quality in the individual or group we supportproviding grant finances for a 3 – 6 year period to cover core costs for a new venture – institutional funding not ‘project’ fundingproviding non-financial added-value e.g. governance (trustees/Directors on the venture’s Board drawn from WIN or Andrews), services like payrolling, networking, technical support and even office incubation using Andrews business space, and so on.“Like venture capitalists, we seek to add far beyond finance; we are committed to the long haul in growing a small business; we are hands-on but not micro-managers. Our return is social not financial. Over the last 5 years Andrews has distributed around £1.2 million in this way, through WINand its sister foundations. The social return has been the contribution to poverty eradication through highly respected NGOs. All these NGOs became financially viable within 3 – 6 years, at which point WIN withdraws.“I stress that in all these start ups WIN has been the primary or exclusive investor, acting as a venture capitalist in a business set up.“In this model, Andrews is a business which acts with social responsibility (through charitable ownership and use of resources). WIN acts as a kind of social venture capitalist with finance and non-finance added value.“Although we have generally launched charitable ventures (ie registered charities) we have also supported non-profit social businesses e.g. Workfinders a non-profit employment agency.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Malcolm X and global Black struggle

first_imgMalcolm XIn March 1964, Malcolm X announced his official departure from the Nation of Islam. He had spent 12 years working on behalf of the organization led by Elijah Muhammad. Malcolm had been suspended and silenced for 90 days after he delivered an address at the Manhattan Center on Dec. 1, 1963, entitled “God’s Judgment of White America.”This rally, organized by the NOI, was planned well in advance of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Nov. 22 in Dallas. Muhammad had ordered all his ministers not to speak directly about the assassination since the country was still in a state of shock and mourning.When Malcolm X was asked about the assassination, he noted that the U.S. government and its leaders had engaged in targeted assassinations of foreign leaders, specifically pointing to the murder of Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba. The U.S. played a prominent role in the destabilization of Lumumba’s government in 1960, as well as his kidnapping, torture and execution in January 1961.Malcolm said the Kennedy assassination was a “case of the chickens coming home to roost,” a common phrase in the African-American community suggesting that deeds committed against others will come back to haunt the perpetrators. At the conclusion of the 90-day suspension, the national headquarters of the NOI in Chicago sent word that the punishment for ostensibly violating discipline would be extended indefinitely.Malcolm X called a press conference where he announced not only his departure from the NOI but also the establishment of another organization, the Muslim Mosque Inc. This religious group would also involve itself in electoral politics and community organizing.For several years before his split with Muhammad and the NOI, Malcolm X had sought to build alliances among African Americans, Africans from the continent, and Muslim nations and communities outside the U.S. At his “Message to the Grassroots” speech in Detroit on Nov. 10, 1963, just three weeks prior to his suspension from the NOI, he said that genuine independence struggles were bloody and that the people of Algeria, Kenya, China and other countries only gained their independence and sovereignty because they were willing to engage in armed struggle. (Recording by the Afro-American Broadcasting Corporation in Detroit)Malcolm X returned to Detroit in April 1964 to deliver his legendary “Ballot or Bullets” speech. “It’s freedom for everybody or freedom for nobody,” Malcolm X declared. He said that if African Americans were willing to fight on behalf of U.S. imperialism against armed revolutionaries in Vietnam and Korea, then there should be no problem with them taking up guns to defend themselves against the Ku Klux Klan and other racists in this country.Travels to Mecca, African statesIn May 1964 Malcolm X embarked upon the hajj, the religious pilgrimage that Muslims strive to have in their lifetime. Under the NOI, the hajj was not mandatory, and therefore the organization lacked what was perceived as authenticity in Islamic communities in the East.After making his religious pilgrimage, he added El-Hajj to his existing Muslim name, Malik Shabazz, stressing his acceptance within the orthodox Muslim faith. During this trip Malcolm also traveled to several African states, including Egypt, Nigeria and Ghana.He returned to the U.S. in June and founded a new political group, the Organization of Afro-American Unity. The group was patterned on the Organization of African Unity, the continental organization of independent states formed the year before in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Malcolm set out for the Second Annual Summit of the OAU in Cairo, Egypt, in July 1964 to make a direct appeal to African leaders for solidarity and support in resolving the plight of African Americans under U.S. national oppression.In an eight-page memorandum to the African heads of state in Cairo, Malcolm X, writing on behalf of the OAAU, wrote: “Our problem is your problem. No matter how much independence Africans get here on the mother continent, unless you wear your national dress at all times when you visit America, you may be mistaken for one of us and suffer the same psychological and physical mutilation that is an everyday occurrence in our lives.”He continued, “Our problem is your problem. It is not a Negro problem, nor an American problem. This is a world problem, a problem for humanity. It is not a problem of civil rights but a problem of human rights.”Malcolm went even further, saying that the racist apartheid regime of South Africa at that time was less of a threat than the racist U.S. regime. He wrote, “America is worse than South Africa, because not only is America racist, but she is also deceitful and hypocritical. South Africa preaches segregation and practices segregation. She, at least, practices what she preaches. America preaches integration and practices segregation. She preaches one thing while deceitfully practicing another.”Lessons from Malcolm X’s legacyOn his second visit to Africa and the Middle East in 1964, Malcolm X stayed outside the U.S. for four months, stopping over in France and England on his way back to enhance relations between African Americans and the African Diaspora in Western Europe.After returning to the U.S., his speeches during rallies for the OAAU were often held at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, N.Y. He shared platforms with members of the Pan-African Students Organization of the Americas and other African leaders such as Tanzanian revolutionary Abdul Rahman Mohamed Babu, a Marxist and Pan-Africanist who advocated socialism as the only solution for the continent.Malcolm X met with Che Guevara during his visit to the United Nations in December 1964. Guevara sent a statement of solidarity to an OAAU meeting that was read by Malcolm X.On the eve of his assassination in February 1965, Malcolm attempted to enter France again but was denied entry. The French government would not provide a specific answer about why he was being denied admission.Upon returning to the U.S., Malcolm’s home was bombed in the early morning hours of Feb. 14. He subsequently traveled to Detroit and delivered a speech encompassing themes of pan-Africanism and internationalism.In one of his final addresses, delivered at the Corn Hill Methodist Church in Rochester, N.Y., on Feb. 16, Malcolm said that “in no time can you understand the problems between Black and white people here in Rochester or Black and white people in Mississippi or Black and white people in California, unless you understand the basic problem that exists between Black and white people — not confined to the local level, but confined to the international, global level on this earth today.”Malcolm X was assassinated on Feb. 21 before he was able to address an OAAU audience at the Audubon Ballroom. Although his assassination had been attributed to members of the NOI, many since then believe that the federal government was behind his death in response to his uncompromising militancy and his political evolution toward revolutionary pan-Africanism and internationalism.In addition to seeking the assistance of African governments and national liberation movements in the struggle of African Americans, Malcolm X, like William Patterson, Paul Robeson and W.E.B. Du Bois of the Civil Rights Congress in 1951, sought to take the plight of African Americans before the United Nations, seeking sanctions against the U.S. for crimes against humanity. Malcolm X also said that through his travels he keenly observed that the countries making the most progress were moving toward socialism and the liberation of women.These words hold true today. The African and Middle Eastern communities in Europe have exploded in urban rebellions in the same way they developed inside the U.S. after 1963.Until the system of international racism and economic exploitation is confronted by oppressed peoples collectively, on a global level, there will not be a solution to the crisis. Youth today must study the works of Malcolm X and apply the lessons of his life and struggles to the monumental challenges facing the workers and oppressed in the 21th century.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/27/2015

first_img Wells Fargo Indiana Weather Forecast 3/27/2015 CORN WeatherToday should be the apex of the cold air over the US Corn belt, with temps struggling to get past freezing over a good chunk of the great lakes area at least. Today could be a day where we set or challenge record low maximums for a large part of the Corn Belt. We follow it up with more cold air tomorrow…only slightly better, and then finally bounce out for Sunday. Even still, the region will be mostly normal to below normal through next week. Plenty of moisture is coming as well, with systems for Sunday night into Monday morning, next Wednesday, and then late Good Friday into Saturday. We also see a strong system for the week following Easter. Most of the Corn Belt will pick up moisture from at least one of these events, and we look for combined 10 day totals to be between half and 1 inch conservatively…and we think some areas will do much, much better.No change in Argentina moisture from now through Easter. We continue to see this as a north vs. south affair, with scattered showers and thunderstorms more numerous over the northern half to two thirds of the growing areas. Meanwhile, to the south we see nearly no rain. Temps are above normal. We will leave moisture totals for the heavy rain areas can at half to 1.25” and the drier areas will see nothing to about .25”Southern Brazil will be wet over the coming 2 week period, with a least 2 strong fronts working in. We see rain totals from RDGS through Paraná averaging 1-2.5” through April 6th. Matto Grosso do Sul may lag behind just a bit, but the second front there brings better rains. Temps nearly normalWhile a large part of China’s corn and soy areas stay dry at the beginning of the period, we see a big increase in action starting midweek next week and going through the end of the period. Two stronger fronts for later next week and into the week following can bring rains of up to 2 inches (combined total) over about 70% of key growing regions only far northern wheat areas will be missed by the biggest rains…and even there we see rains of up to half an inch. We would love to show you the European model maps of the good rains in China (and Australia for that matter, see below) but new licensing conditions on those models require us to not reproduce (you know, like the NFL does with their games…you can see them in person, but don’t you dare tape them to show anybody else)SOYBEAN WeatherOccasional rains over the Deep South through next week mean that we will have to work around additional moisture. We see rains moving through Monday, Tuesday night-Wednesday, Thursday night and then next Saturday. Combined totals will come in at half to 1.25” and coverage at 80%. Two strong pushes of cool, high pressure will be in this weekend, and then for the end of next weekend and the start of the next week. It might be tough to see a bunch of planting progress next week.Scattered rains continue off an on through Brazil soybean areas over the next two weeks. 10 day rain totals look similar to previous days, with 1-2 combined totals. There really is no change in the overall pattern from Matto Grosso over through Bahia.WHEAT Weather No rain in any part of HRW country through next Tuesday. By next Wednesday we will see some thunderstorm development over TX and southern OK. Wednesday night into Thursday a front sweeps through the central plains and will trigger some showers and storms over KS, NE and OK. Right now it looks like the western extent of these storms will be a little better, with action getting into parts of Western KS and the OK panhandle. We look for quarter to 1 inch rains with coverage at 60% at this time, with eastern CO and extreme western KS at the most risk of missing out. Another strong thunderstorm cluster can break out Thursday night through Friday between I-80 and I-70…it could promote some 1-2 inch rains and we would need to look for severe weather.Dry and very cold over most SRW areas today. Temps begin to moderate Sunday. The next rains for the region hit Sunday night and Monday…and then we see several more waves of moisture coming next week. Temps overnight tonight may be interesting, as areas will dive well below freezing…some parts of Northern Indiana and NW OH can be in the middle teens. While wheat may not be completely awake yet in these areas, it is still uncovered…and these temps are not going to be overly friendly. Good moisture potential next week, though, with rain totals potentially up to 1 inch in spots.The pattern in Western Russia/Eastern Europe shows moisture spreading eastward over time, as the wetter weather in Eastern Europe is able to make progress pushing east. There still are some pretty big dry holes on the 10day total precipitation maps, but they are limited mostly to the Volga region and Kazakhstan. Ukraine and western FSU countries now can see up to 1.5-2” of rain between now and Easter Sunday…mostly in nice chunks from a front next week.  .Rains look even better for Australian Wheat as well. We are starting to see the pattern bring moisture slightly farther north over the continent…and that is bringing good rains over the next 2 weeks to almost all wheat areas. The best moisture is back loaded in the period, meaning we will not see these rains kick in until later next week (especially in the east) but they should ease dryness concerns as the relate to winter wheat planting, which will kick off in a few weeks. By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 27, 2015 SHARE It’s the winter that just won’t die!! Cold, Canadian air parks over the Hoosier state today…and it will make its presence known. We could be looking at record or near record low maximums for the day today over a large part of the state. Over the northern third, it may be a struggle for daytime highs to surpass freezing. But…they likely do or get closes before all is said and done. Cold air holds tomorrow as well, but likely will not be as bad. We finally push back into the 40s and 50s on Sunday, but even that will still be below normal.  One good thing….we will stay dry, and we should see decent sun in spite of the cold air.We continue to keep an eye out for some minor moisture moving over the northern part of the state Sunday night and then spreading south by Monday morning as a weak wave passes over the great lakes. It will not be significant…a few hundredths of an inch to about 3 tenths. Coverage looks a little better at this time, and may push 60% of the state.Our next good front still is on track for midweek, with rain arriving later Wednesday afternoon and pushing across the state into early Thursday. We look for .1”-.3” total accumulation, and coverage will be about 70%. We follow that up with a stronger low passing by to the north and west to finish the week on Friday. That will put up to an inch or rain in over IA and parts of IL, but here we see .25-.9” from Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon. All rain, and gusty winds likely. It will not be the best set up for Easter festivities on Saturday. However, Easter Sunday morning should be sunny. Breezy and cool, but at least it should be clearing.Longer term, the GFS model shows another major system for the 7th-8th that brings half to 1 inch rain potential, and another cool push behind that system. But…we do see a drier pattern setting up farther upstream…meaning that we might tone the moisture down a bit as we move toward mid month.

first_img RSF laureates support jailed Vietnamese journalist Pham Doan Trang April 27, 2021 Find out more January 21, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Monthly Nha Bao va Cong Luan suspended after two issues to go further Three more independent reporters arrested in Vietnam Reporters Without Borders condemned the suspension of the monthly Nha Bao va Cong Luan, which was reportedly ordered to cease publishing in mid-January 2005.The decision, taken by the ministry of culture and information, has not been made public.The worldwide press freedom organisation criticised the Vietnamese authorities for suspending a publication if its investigations proved embarrassing. “In this country where the authorities view the media as propaganda vehicles, we deplore the censorship inflicted on the press when it reflects popular discontent,” it said.Reporters Without Borders learned on 18 January that Nha Bao va Cong Luan had received an order to cease publishing just a few days earlier. The reason for the order was unknown but in its first two issues that appeared in November and December 2004 it carried investigations involving influential figures and some business circles.One investigation focused on a major tourist development near a well-known beach at Vung Tau in the south of the country in which local people were quoted as objecting to the expensive project which they said would be harmful to the environment.The investigation also highlighted corruption among the local elite and their protection of those in charge of the project.In the past few weeks, the Vietnamese government has slapped bans on a number of publications, in particular news websites, or ordered them to tow the line. Read the press release.Reporters Without Borders also repeated its appeal for the release of Journalist Nguyen Dinh Huy and four cyberdissidents, Nguyen Dan Que, Nguyen Vu Binh, Pham Hong Son and Nguyen Khac Toan, who are still in prison.
