Several Hong Kong media outlets reported the arrest, based on messages published on the Weibo social network, then relayed by journalist and blogger Wen Yunchao. No information has been released on why she would have been arrested. But the action may stem from her support for the release of human rights advocate Pu Zhiqiang. Reporters Without Borders demands an immediate explanation from the Beijing government.The news followed by one day the arrest of Xiang Nanfu, a regular contributor to the Boxun news website. Several days before that came an official announcement that journalist Gao Yu had been placed in criminal detention. She has not been heard from for more than one week.“As in the case of Gao Yu, the fact that a committed journalist such as Wu Wei has not been heard from is of the utmost concern,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, head of the press freedom organization’s Asia-Pacific desk. “All the more so because the police are stepping up the pace of kidnap-style arrests as the anniversary of the Tienanmin Square events approaches.”Ismaïl added: “In the absence of charges against her, we demand that Wu Wei be released immediately.”Information concerning the journalist’s arrest had circulated on 13 May on Weibo. But, at her family’s request, word of the detention did not immediately circulate more widely.In the run-up to the 25-year anniversary of the Tian’anmen massacre, arrests of dissidents and censorship operations are on the increase in China. The country is ranked 175th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders World press freedom index.Photo : The Standard News May 15, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Chinese journalist still held after one week March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

House Ag Approves CFTC Bill

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Jerry HagstromDTN Political CorrespondentWASHINGTON, D.C. (DTN) — After the House Agriculture Committee on Wednesday approved a bipartisan bill to reauthorize the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, House Agriculture Chairman Collin Peterson, D-Minn., said the bill “sends a strong message to the Senate. The people that look to our markets for integrity don’t care about political wins and losses. They expect us to conduct the business of this committee.”Peterson noted, “The CFTC authorization expired in 2013, so it is overdue, and I’m glad we are on a bipartisan path to get it done.” Although the CFTC has continued to function normally under appropriations bills, Peterson also said that Heath Tarbert, the new CFTC chairman, “is also keen to have his agency formally reauthorized.”Tarbert in a press release praised the committee’s action and said, “The sound regulation of our derivatives markets, which see more than $4 trillion in notional activity each day, is critical to the health of the U.S. economy and the pocketbook of every American. These markets help inform the price of everything from food and gasoline to home mortgage interest. Today’s bipartisan action highlights the importance of the work done at the CFTC and represents a significant first step in the legislative process. I look forward to working with members of both parties in both chambers to see a bill through.”For the most part, the bill continues the CFTC’s previous authorities, but it also reinforces its fraud authority, establishes an Office of the Chief Economist and expands the office of Minority and Women Inclusion.House Agriculture Commodity Exchanges, Energy and Credit Subcommittee Chairman David Scott, D-Ga., noted that the bill also will establish and maintain a paid internship program for students from 1890s historically black colleges and universities, schools that serve Hispanic and Latino students, 1994 tribal colleges, and those schools that serve the territories.The bill also contains a digital commodities section, but House Agriculture ranking member Michael Conaway, R-Texas, said, “Today’s legislation continues the important work of reauthorizing the agencies and programs in our jurisdiction, but I do want to caution that we are not breaking much new ground. This bill does not address important issues around the emerging world of digital assets, especially those digital commodities that fall within our committee’s jurisdiction.”Three freshmen Democrats claimed credit for provisions in the bill.Rep. Abigail Spanberger, D-Va., said in a news release that the bill contains her provision that would bring clarity to the determination of which commodity broker assets will be used to cover the costs of equity claims during bankruptcy proceedings. Specifically, the Spanberger provision would require that a commodity broker’s cash, securities, or other property be classified as customer property to help pay the net equity claims of a broker’s public customers following the broker’s bankruptcy.“Amid widespread trade worries, the American futures market currently faces tremendous financial uncertainty. In this unstable economic climate, agribusinesses in central Virginia and across the country are always looking to better protect themselves against the consequences of unpredictable fluctuations in the market,” said Spanberger. “Today, the House Agriculture Committee passed my bill to bring more clarity to the CFTC’s commodity broker bankruptcy rules.“By streamlining these regulations, we are giving producers more certainty as they look to expand their operations and invest in new facilities, equipment, and employees,” Spanberger said.Peterson said in the news release that “Spanberger’s provision in the reauthorization legislation would give our country’s agribusinesses some much-needed peace of mind during bankruptcy proceedings, and I was glad to see her bill pass with strong bipartisan support.”Spanberger noted her provision is endorsed by the Virginia Agribusiness Council and the National Futures Association.Rep. Cindy Axne, D-Iowa, said, “This legislation includes language from my Whistleblower Programs Improvement Act, which strengthens protections for whistleblowers that report wrongdoing or violations of commodities law. We should be protecting folks that do the right thing by reporting market manipulation or fraud, not exposing them to being fired if they speak up.”Rep. Angie Craig, D-Minn., said the bill contains her provision “to ensure that church retirement and healthcare plans are not regulated the same way for-profit corporations are — allowing churches to provide their employees with the healthcare they need and the retirement savings they have earned.”Conaway commented, “We’ve included new protections for charitable organizations and church retirement plans so they will not be subjected to regulations designed for Wall Street, as well as ensuring the protection of customers’ hard-earned assets in the case of a commodity broker bankruptcy.”Jerry Hagstrom can be reached at [email protected] him on Twitter @hagstromreport(CCSK)© Copyright 2019 DTN/The Progressive Farmer.

Ohio State mens soccer defeats Bowling Green in overtime

The Ohio State men’s soccer team needed more than 90 minutes to defeat Bowling Green, but the Buckeyes eventually got the job done. Ten days after defeating Michigan in overtime, OSU took the Falcons to an extra session on Wednesday night and won, 1-0 on freshman midfielder Brady Wahl’s first career goal. Wahl took a long throw-in from freshman midfielder Adam Gorski and buried it in the back of the net in the fourth minute of overtime to pull out the victory. “We had that trailing run all night,” Wahl said. “We were bound to get one and we did. It was a good ball by Gorski.” “Everytime we get one of those long throw-ins with Gorski you think we’re gonna get an opportunity out of it,” said head coach John Bluem. “It’s just dangerous. It doesn’t surprise me that, finally, a chance fell to one of our guys.” The match showcased stellar performances by both teams’ goalkeepers. OSU (7-4-1) junior keeper Matt Lampson had 5 saves, including a big stop with 20 seconds left in regulation. BGSU (7-3-1) redshirt senior keeper Miguel Roasales had 8 saves after replacing an injured Michael Wiest early in the first half. The Buckeyes had two near misses in the first half of action, with the first coming in the 27th minute when a header into the net by junior midfielder Sebastian Rivas was disallowed by an offsides call. Nine minutes later, a Gorski throw-in was headed by junior defender Ben Killian toward the goal but was defended by a BGSU player who appeared to be standing inside the goal when he knocked the ball away. “I looked over at the linesman and he was just standing there,” Killian said. “It looked like it was a goal to me, but maybe he saw something I didn’t. At the end of the day, it is what it is.” Bluem said he hasn’t seen the video yet, but it looked like a goal to him as well. “We thought we had two goals in the first half,” Bluem said. “Didn’t get either one of them. But the guys at least kept after it.” The Falcons had two big scoring opportunities, but were turned away each time by a Lampson punch at the ball that sent it over the crossbar. “I think we did phenomenal,” Killian said. “We stayed tight, Lampson did a very good job back there communicating with us and overall it was just a good performance.” Wahl said the team is looking forward and hopes to keep the victories coming for OSU. “We needed to keep things going in the right direction, keep the wins going,” Wahl said. “So you can have a shot at that ring.” Bluem said he was impressed by the Falcons’ performance and that his squad beat a quality team. “Bowling Green is a good team, and the record that they have is no fluke,” he said. “They’ve got some good players and they’re very well organized and disciplined.” The Buckeyes will look to remain unbeaten in conference play as they face Northwestern (4-4-3) Sunday, Oct. 9, at 2 p.m. at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. read more

Di Maria calm for future at PSG

first_imgParis Saint-Germain star Angel Di Maria recently admitted he is uncertain about his future at the club after this campaign ends but remains positive.He has been among the regulars in the squad and has been able to score 11 goals and provide six assists in just 27 Ligue 1 appearances, but his name has been linked over and over again with a Barcelona move.Di Maria shared it is likely he could follow Unai Emery away from Parc des Princes this summer.Opinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…“Football is a strange game,” Di Maria said, according to ESPN. “I am happy here, but the club needs to sign new players and to do this, others must be sold. It is not my decision. It is also the club’s. For the moment, I am calm.”“We must simply continue to work hard,” Di Maria said. “The club and the supporters need to stay patient,” he said, when asked what can PSG do in order to make their continental dreams come true.last_img read more

Pep insists Sterling is loved at City

first_imgManchester City manager Pep Guardiola insists Raheem Sterling is loved in the locker-room as the winger becomes first £300,000-a-week England player, outstripping Wayne Rooney’s previous record wages at Old Trafford.The 23-year-old signed a new five-year deal with City on Friday a week in which he faced criticism for winning a penalty against Shakhtar Donetsk in the UEFA Champions League by accidentally tripping himself up and not owning up to the referee.Guardiola said, according to Daily Mail:“I don’t know why should criticise Raheem. It’s unfair, he wasn’t diving. He is an incredible nice guy with incredible love from the locker room. He does absolutely everything on the pitch, every single game, fighting from the front for 90 minutes.”“He made a mistake because he is 23 years old. He is so quick that when he does a chip, he has to do it slow.”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.Sterling has been rewarded for an impressive start to the season in which he already has seven goals to his name for City and a brace for England against Spain.Criticized by Liverpool fans for being greedy when he moved to Manchester, Guardiola believes playing under the microscope has helped the England international mature and able to survive the current controversy which could see him jeered by United’s traveling fans.“It will make him stronger. He is stronger than that, than he was when he met each other in the first year. Now he can control these kinds of emotions much better,” said Guardiola.“We cannot forget though when you are 23, you are not a full person or a full player. Sometimes we ask for or we demand a lot from our players when they are so still young but it is OK.”last_img read more
