Mi marido, Glen, está jubilado. Quiero estar más con él. Nuestro increíble hijo, Justin, vive con nosotros y nos recuerda cada día, con su propia existencia, que Dios obra milagros con generosidad. Quiero celebrar la vida de Justin estando con él todos los días. Quiero hacer pasteles con mis nietos y acudir a todos sus conciertos, partidos de fútbol y obras de teatro escolares. Quiero tener conversaciones pausadas por teléfono con mis hijas. Ustedes se dan cuenta.Mañana, ustedes recibirán información sobre el proceso de elección de un presidente y vicepresidente, cuando estemos en Indianápolis.Ha sido un gran honor el dirigir esta cámara, y estoy satisfecha de observar las muchas maneras cómo los diputados y suplentes sirven y dirigen la Iglesia de Dios, tanto cuando la Convención General está en sesión como cuando no lo está. Sus voces resuenan no sólo dentro de la gran representante diversidad de la Convención General, sino también en nuestras comunidades y en las comisiones durante el trienio, en las juntas parroquiales y en los roles de liderazgo que ustedes ejercen en nuestras congregaciones, diócesis y provincias. En mis 21 años en la Cámara, y mis dos períodos como presidente, se me ha recordado una y otra vez la sabiduría de nuestros antepasados cuando crearon un sistema de gobierno que hace honor a la sencilla verdad teológica de que el Espíritu Santo sopla donde quiere, y que para discernir los propósitos de Dios debemos escuchar las voces de todos los bautizados.Por favor, sepan que voy a servir a pleno rendimiento en la Cámara de los Diputados como Presidente hasta que el “martillo golpee” el 12 de julio en Indianápolis.Paz y bendiciones,Bonnie Anderson, D.D.Presidente: La Cámara de los DiputadosOmnipotente y eterno Dios, fuente de toda sabiduría y entendimiento, hazte presente con los que deliberan en la Convención General para la renovación y la misión de tu Iglesia. Enséñanos a que en todas las cosas busquemos primero tu honor y tu gloria. Guíanos para percibir lo que es justo, y concédenos el valor para buscarlo y la gracia para llevarlo a cabo, por medio de Jesucristo nuestro Señor.

Philadelphia protests denounce cutbacks in public education

Posted on by

first_imgJune 11Twice in one week, protests against severe underfunding of public schools took to the streets of Center City, Philadelphia.  On June 9, over 1,000 teachers, students and community activists gathered outside the Union League to denounce both Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who were supposedly inside for a private fundraiser for Corbett.When word came that the governors had switched the fundraiser venue to a more secure location in the Comcast building, the demonstration turned into a march through Center City streets, ending with a sit-in outside Comcast that blocked traffic.  Six demonstrators were eventually arrested for refusing to end their sit-in.Protesters challenged the policies — promoted by both governors — that enrich corporations at the expense of working and oppressed people.  Both have cut funding for public education and health care while pushing to privatize public services. Speakers noted it was fitting that Corbett sought sanctuary at Comcast, one of the corporations that has benefited the most from his policy allowing companies doing business in Pennsylvania to avoid paying taxes by setting up dummy corporate headquarters (tax havens) in neighboring Delaware.Comcast Vice President David Cohen, a private-school promoter who has frequently attacked the Philadelphia Federation of Teachers, is a major financial backer of Corbett’s re-election campaign.June 9The 2013-14 school year is closing without any contract settlement for Philadelphia teachers.  While refusing to negotiate in good faith with the PFT in March, the School Reform Commission asked the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to reaffirm its alleged “right” to arbitrarily impose work rules, including the elimination of seniority.The lack of adequate state funding is so severe that even the SRC refused to pass a budget for the next school term — no doubt fearful that yet another round of draconian cuts would result in broader protests.  A projected $216 million deficit could mean another 800 teacher layoffs and over 40 students per class. Fels High School teacher Joe Beech stated, “While they’re feasting, our schools are starving.” (WPVI, June 9)Students take a standProtesters on June 9 demanded full and fair funding to ensure all students have equitable access to resources in their neighborhoods.  They called for the abolishment of the SRC and a return to local control over schools.  A majority of SRC members are appointed by the governor.  Additional demands included fully staffed schools with full-time, on-site nurses and counselors at every school.  Two students have recently died as a result of having no school nurse at their schools when they became ill.The demonstration called by the Philadelphia Coalition Advocating for Public Schools included members of Parents United for Public Education, Youth United for Change, the Philadelphia Student Union, the PFT, Service Employees Local 668 and the Caucus of Working Educators. Several New Jersey residents from the cities of Newark and Camden joined in the protest.On June 11, over 200 high school students staged a walkout to the SRC offices for a rally before marching to Gov. Corbett’s Philadelphia headquarters at City Hall.   Students from Edison, Masterman, Kensington Urban Education Academy, Kensington CAPA, Kensington Business, Kensington Health Sciences, Frankford, South Philadelphia High School and Olney Charter High School participated. The walkout was called by Youth United for Change.Edison High School junior Calvin Wongus told this WW reporter, “Our right to equal education and our futures are being sabotaged by this government.”  Wongus recently transferred to the Philadelphia district from Westchester County, N.Y., where “We had all the resources we needed. Here we have to fight for every penny we get for our schools every year.”Wongus voiced concern that pending cuts in the 2014-15 school year funding would further reduce counselors necessary to help students prepare college transcripts.  “Transcripts are being thrown away.  Job training programs will be cut and classroom sizes increased to over 40 students. Rich white schools get what they need.  We walked out to fight this injustice and it’s not just in Philadelphia.”South Philadelphia High School junior Sakiema Wood told WW: “The real problem is the private charter schools taking over.  We want a future where students have real choice.”Keme Liberato told WW: “The students may chant ‘Save our schools!’ but many want a whole new system of public education.  The schools are bad in general and students see them like prisons they are forced to go to.  These students are in motion, but what is needed is a mass movement to take on the corporations’ dismantling of public education.”As students marched under City Hall, their chant of “P-O-W-E-R! We got the power because we are the revolution!” resounded through the concourse.WW photos: Joseph PietteFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Duggan gets it done on the ground, TCU keeps Saddle Trophy in Fort Worth

Posted on by

first_imgFacebook + posts printOn a day when TCU quarterback Max Duggan could not hit the broad side of a barn with his arm, the sophomore got it done for the Horned Frogs with his legs.With under a minute to go in the third quarter of TCU’s matchup with Texas Tech on Saturday, Duggan saw an opening and took it, juking out the first defender before beating the rest to the end zone.Three drives later, Duggan called “game” on the same play, but this time, it went for 81 yards and gave the Frogs a 16-point lead with 1:42 remaining in the ball game. “He’s just a freak athlete,” safety Tre Moehrig said of Duggan. “You’ve seen it before, and don’t think you’re going to not see it again.”TCU quarterback Max Duggan scores one of his three rushing touchdowns against Texas Tech on Nov. 7, 2020. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)That was a lead the Frogs would not see diminished, as TCU defeated Texas Tech 34-18 to earn their second-straight win and bring the Saddle Trophy home for the second-straight year.The win was the 200th of head coach Gary Patterson’s career in the purple and white. The 20-year coach shifted the praise for reaching the landmark on those he has had around him.“That’s just a lot of good players over 23 years,” Patterson said. “Lot of good players. Lot of good coaches. Lot of good fans. It’s everybody.”While Duggan was just 11-for-23 with 73 yards and an interception through the air, the young signal caller rushed for a career-high 154 yards and three touchdowns on the day.“Tonight, I wasn’t throwing the ball great, and I need to be better about that,” Duggan said. “It was good that we were able to move the way that way [running], especially when we weren’t able to throw.”After the game, wide receiver Derius Davis, one of the fastest players on the TCU roster, said Duggan would “for sure” beat him in a foot race. “Not even close,” Duggan said about Davis’ remarks. “I would get dusted by him.”Davis was able to use his speed to make a difference in the game as well. After taking a punt 67 yards to the house last week against Baylor, Davis had 103 punt return yards against Texas Tech, including a 50-yard return in the third quarter that set up a field goal.The legs of Duggan and Davis made up for a primarily stale offensive day for TCU. The Frogs started five of their 15 drives within the Red Raider 40 yard line, but only one of them resulted in a touchdown.On the other hand, the Frogs were dominant on defense, tying their season-high five sacks (all in the first half). The Red Raiders gained just 311 yards of total offense, which is their second-lowest total of the season. “We did it early. We didn’t do it as well late,” Patterson said of his pass rush. “I was proud of them, because the last two ballgames, we’ve really come on.”After totaling just five sacks in their first four games, TCU has recorded 10 sacks in their last two games alone.TCU forced Texas Tech to punt on nine of their 15 possessions, with a turnover on downs and an interception coming on two others.The start of the game could not have been more sloppy offensively for either team. In the first quarter, eight drives were completed, with the teams combining for just 36 yards of total offense. TCU’s initial drive had included just one play–an interception by Duggan on a poorly-thrown fade attempt to receiver Blair Conwright.While the Frogs gained just seven yards on their ensuing drive, a blocked punt by linebacker Ben Wilson had placed them deep in Red Raider territory. Kicker Griffin Kell then nailed a 42-yard field goal to give TCU an early 3-0 lead.What TCU lacked offensively, they made up for on defense. On Texas Tech’s first five drives, the Frogs held the Red Raiders to negative six yards of offense. During that time, defensive end Ochaun Mathis went berserk, recording a career-high three sacks.“Even last week, he [Mathis] was really starting to cause problems.” Patterson said. “The more confidence he grows with it, the better he’s going to become, to be honest with you.”The TCU defense dominated Texas Tech quarterback Henry Colombi, sacking him five times on Nov. 7, 2020. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Mathis finished with six total tackles to go with his three sacks. The sophomore became the first TCU player to record three or more sacks since defensive end Josh Carraway did so on Oct. 8, 2016, against Kansas.The Frogs finally got something going on offense early in the second quarter. After a 20-yard punt return by Davis, TCU crawled its way through Texas Tech territory and extended its lead on a three-yard touchdown run by Duggan.The teams did little else for the rest of the half, with the Red Raiders kicking a field goal of their own at the halftime buzzer to avoid a first half shutout.Both offenses seemed to find new life entering the second half. The Frogs marched 89 yards in 12 plays on their opening third quarter drive, taking up 5:13. Facing third down on the Red Raiders two yard line, TCU ran a beautiful fake up the middle before giving it to receiver Quentin Johnston to take a 17-3 lead.The score was the second of Johnston’s career and first on the ground.Texas Tech answered right away, though. Quarterback Henry Colombi completed a pass deep down the left side to wideout Ja’Lynn Polk, who was able to walk into the end zone for a 60-yard score after his defender fell down.Duggan’s third quarter touchdown run soon followed, but the Red Raiders would not go away, scoring again a few minutes later on yet another deep ball.The Frogs would then step up defensively, locking up Texas Tech’s final two drives by forcing a missed field goal and then intercepting Colombi with 0:33 remaining to put the nails in the coffin.The win was the first for TCU at Amon G. Carter Stadium this season, having previously been 0-3 when playing at home.Up next, the Frogs will head back on the road for a face off with the West Virginia Mountaineers. Kickoff in Morgantown, West Virginia, is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14 at a time TBA.

Kazakh journalism badly hit by media law amendments

Posted on by

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns the press law amendments that President Nursultan Nazarbayev signed into law yesterday because they deal a new series of blows to media freedom in Kazakhstan, especially to investigative journalism and access to state-held information. As Kazakh press legislation already contained many draconian provisions, hopes were raised by the original announcement that it was to be amended, and again when journalists were consulted about the changes, as this is not customary in Kazakhstan.But these amendments will just make things worse. After the lower house passed them in late November, RSF joined Kazakh press freedom groups in urging the senate to reject them – but to no avail.“Far from the announced intentions, this package of amendments obstructs the activities of journalists even more and makes them more vulnerable to pressure,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“We deeply regret that, although media professionals were consulted, their opinions were ignored. The authorities need to understand that journalistic freedom and independence would benefit society as a whole and the country’s development.”Under one of the most controversial amendments, journalists are required to obtain the permission of persons named in their articles before publishing information involving matters of “personal and family confidentiality.” Kazakh law already protects the right to privacy and medical confidentiality, among others, and this new form of confidentiality is left undefined, opening the way to the broadest possible interpretation. Investigative journalists fear it could obstruct their reporting, especially coverage of corruption. There is similar concern about a ban on “information violating lawful interests,” which are also not defined.One of the amendments complicates the right of access to state-held information. The length of the time within which officials must answer journalists’ questions is more than doubled, with the result that by the time journalists get their answer, there is every chance it will no longer be newsworthy. Furthermore, officials are also given the right to classify certain answers.Under one of the amendments, Internet users are required to identify themselves before posting a comment on a news website, and their information will be stored for three months. This suggests that there could be a further increase in the number of people being jailed because of their online comments, which has already grown sharply in recent years.The package nonetheless does include a few positive amendments that were the result of the prior consultation with media representatives and NGOs. The right of control over one’s own photographic or video image is restricted during public events and a procedure is established for settling press-related disputes out of court.Also, the authorities will no longer be able to impose such drastic sanctions as the confiscation of a newspaper issue or the closure of a media outlet in response to minor regulatory violations. It should nonetheless be pointed out that the leading independent media outlets have already been forced to close on the basis of such minor violations.There have been almost no independent media outlets in Kazakhstan since the simultaneous closure of all the leading national opposition newspapers in December 2012. This dire situation has been compounded by the judicial system’s readiness to cooperate in arrests of outspoken journalists and bloggers.Kazakhstan is ranked 157th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.

Health of renowned journalist U Win Tin deteriorating after 19 years in jail

A friend who visits him every two weeks said he had been suffering from bronchitis.Reporters Without Borders continues to call for the release of Win Tin who has been in jail since 4 July 1989 and was sentenced to 20 years imprisonment for “anti-government propaganda”. —————–Reporters Without Borders and the Burma Media Association (BMA) today called for the immediate release from prison of celebrated journalist U Win Tin whose health has deteriorated badly in the past few days.The 78-year-old is suffering from lung problems with severe asthmatic attacks which prevent him from sleeping and eating properly. A relative who visited him two days ago found him thin and weak.“It will be exactly 19 years on 4 July since Burma’s military arrested Win Tin. The government, which has a responsibility to protect the life of its citizens, should now release him”, the worldwide press freedom organisation and the BMA said. “He should be moved to a hospital as quickly as possible”.At least ten journalists and one blogger are currently in prison in Burma.The military junta has never kept a promise it made to the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) that Win Tin would benefit from an early release. The director general of prisons and the governor of Insein jail have since 2007 refused to accord him this right under the law, because he had never worked during his imprisonment.Win Tin had refused on the grounds that as a political prisoner he could not be forced to work during his detention.Win Tin was sentenced to 20 years in jail, chiefly on a charge of making “anti-government propaganda”. He has not been allowed any further visits from ICRC representatives since 2006.Even if his renown has meant he has been better treated than most prisoners of conscience, his health has slowly worsened. He has had heart problems on several occasions and has high blood pressure. Win Tin had an operation for a very painful hernia in January this year. He was sent back to his special cell at Insein jail after a few days of convalescence and treatment. center_img Follow the news on Myanmar RSF asks Germany to let Myanmar journalist Mratt Kyaw Thu apply for asylum May 26, 2021 Find out more Organisation MyanmarAsia – Pacific US journalist held in Yangon prison notorious for torture Help by sharing this information Thai premier, UN rapporteurs asked to prevent journalists being returned to Myanmar RSF_en last_img read more

The Government is under a legal obligation to forward its comments on the Report including the action taken or proposed to be taken to the Commission in terms of Sub Clause (e) of Section 18. Therefore, the recommendation of the Commission under Section 18 is an adjudicatory order which is legally and immediately enforceable. If the concerned Government or authority fails to implement the recommendation of the Commission within the time stipulated under Section 18(e) of the Act, the Commission can approach the Constitutional Court under Section 18(b) of the Act for enforcement by seeking issuance of appropriate Writ/order/direction. We having held the recommendation to be binding, axiomatically, sanctus and sacrosanct public duty is imposed on the concerned Government or authority to implement the recommendation. It is also clarified that if the Commission is the petitioner before the Constitutional Court under Section 18(b) of the Act, it shall not be open to the concerned Government or authority to oppose the petition for implementation of its recommendation, unless the concerned Government or authority files a petition seeking judicial review of the Commission’s recommendation, provided that the concerned Government or authority has expressed their intention to seek judicial review to the Commission’s recommendation in terms of Section 18(e) of the Act.(ii) Whether the State has any discretion to avoid implementation of the decision made by the State Human Rights Commission and if so, under what circumstances? Ans: As our answer is in the affirmative in respect of the first point of Reference, the same holds good for this point of Reference as well. We having held that the recommendation is binding, the State has no discretion to avoid implementation of the recommendation and in case the State is aggrieved, it can only resort to legal remedy seeking judicial review of the recommendation of the Commission.(iii) Whether the State Human Rights Commission, while exercising powers under sub-clauses (ii) and (iii) of clause (a) of Section 18 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993, could straight away issue orders for recovery of the compensation amount directed to be paid by the State to the victims of violation of human rights under sub-clause (i) of clause (a) of Section 18 of that enactment, from the Officers of the State who have been found to be responsible for causing such violation? Ans: Yes, as we have held that the recommendation of the Commission under Section 18 is binding and enforceable, the Commission can order recovery of the compensation from the State and payable to the victims of the violation of human rights under Sub Clause (a)(i) of Section 18 of the Act and the State in turn could recover the compensation paid, from the Officers of the State who have been found to be responsible for causing
human rights violation. However, we clarify that before effecting recovery from the Officer of the State, the Officer concerned shall be issued with a show cause notice seeking his explanation only on the aspect of quantum of compensation recoverable from him and not on the aspect whether he was responsible for causing human rights violation.'(iv) Whether initiation of appropriate disciplinary proceedings against the Officers of the State under the relevant service rules, if it is so empowered, is the only permissible mode for recovery of the compensation amount directed to be paid by the State to the victims of violation of human rights under sub-clause(i) of clause(a) of Section 18 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993, from the Officers of the State who have been found to be responsible for causing such violation?’ Ans: As far as the initiation of disciplinary proceedings under the relevant Service Rules is concerned, for recovery of compensation, mere show cause notice is sufficient in regard to the quantum of compensation recommended and to be recovered from the Officers/employees of the concerned Government. However, in regard to imposition of penalty as a consequence of a delinquent official being found guilty of the violation, a limited departmental enquiry may be conducted only to ascertain the extent of culpability of the Official concerned in causing violation in order to formulate an opinion of the punishing Authority as to the proportionality of the punishment to be imposed on the official concerned. This procedure may be followed only in cases where the disciplinary authority/punishing authority comes to the conclusion on the basis of the inquiry proceedings and the recommendations of the Commission that the delinquent official is required to be visited with any of the major penalties enumerated in the relevant Service Regulations.As far as imposition of minor penalty is concerned, a mere show cause notice is fair enough, as the existing Service Rules of all services specifically contemplate only show cause notice in any minor penalty proceedings. (v) Whether Officers of the State who have been found to be responsible by the State Human Rights Commission for causing violation of human rights under Section 18 of the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993, are entitled to impeach such orders passed by the Commission in proceedings under Article 226 of the Constitution and if so, at what stage and to which extent? 
Ans: As we have held that the recommendation of the Commission under Section 18 of the Act is binding and enforceable, the Officers/employees of the State who have been found responsible for causing violation of human rights by the Commission, are entitled to assail such orders passed by the Commission by taking recourse to remedies of judicial review provided under the Constitution of India. It is open to the aggrieved officers/employees to approach the competent Court to challenge the findings as well as recommendations of the Commission.The High Court also held that since the recommendation of the H.R.Commission is held to be binding, an officer/employee concerned can resort to appropriate legal remedy at any stage qua complaint or inquiry by the Commission but only on substantial legal grounds.Click Here To Download the OrderRead Order Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

She said it wasn’t civilized. Email the author Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Skip By The Penny Hoarder Print Article Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits She carried a spit cup in her pocketbook and, when the notion hit her, she would unsnap the clamp on her purse, spread it wide open, lean over and spit in the pocketbook in the cup, real civilized-like.Amos, Eunice and Lizzy lived in the tenant house right behind our house. They all dipped. Every afternoon, they would sit out on the front porch, dippin’ and spittin’.The spit bush was at the far end of the porch and that’s where they directed all their “talents.” No matter where they sat on the porch, they could hit the spit bush from any distance and any angle. It was an amazing thing.I was a pretty good spitter because I had a gap between my teeth that acted kind of like the sight on my BB gun. Mama said it wasn’t nice for little girls to spit. But the boys spit all the time. Boys could do a lot of fun things that it wasn’t nice for little girls to do. Sponsored Content I wanted to spit and my best chance of doing so was to dip snuff.Plain ol’ spitting was a sin.We learned in Sunday school that when Jesus was on the cross those mean people spit on him. And right then and there, God made spitting a sin. If you spit on anybody, the devil would put his forked tail in you and you would have to be especially good all the rest of your life or the devil would keep you for his own.There wasn’t any way I could sneak snuff out of my grandmother’s pocketbook but Tince said she could get all the snuff she wanted from Amos. He had cans sitting around all around the house.We went out in the pasture and found a spot on top of the hill where we could take a dip and then stretch out on our backs and watch the clouds make pictures in the sky.Tince opened the can, tapped out a dip in the lid, pulled out her lip and filled it full. She tapped out another lid full and I pulled out my bottom lip and she filled it full.I didn’t quite get to the tonguing part of the dipping. I went into the full-blown spittin’ part … with some masterful gagging in between.That day, I learned a hard lesson. Your body does not generate enough spit to cleanse your mouth of a dip of snuff.On that bright sunny, spring afternoon, I realized Mama was right. There are some things that nice little girls just don’t do.

Covid commuter hotspots signal a breath of fresh air for housing market

first_imgHome » News » Housing Market » Covid commuter hotspots signal a breath of fresh air for housing market previous nextLand & New HomesCovid commuter hotspots signal a breath of fresh air for housing marketPeople looking to move home want gardens, countryside locations and fast broadband – with a quick commute if needed.Richard Reed31st July 20200631 Views Surging demand for more space, fresh air and faster broadband has created a new crop of post-Covid commuter hotspots.New research shows these are key qualities being looked for by a new tranche of home buyers, eager for a change of scenery.Lockdown living has changed what Britons want from their homes, according to Garrington Property Finders – and underlines reports of an ‘escape to the country’.The firm found that among househunters whose priorities have shifted because of the Covid pandemic, 37% are now more likely to want a garden. A fifth also said they want a bigger home (20%), a less urban location (20%) and faster broadband (18%).Still working from homeWith official data showing 41% of UK workers still working from home all or part of the time, the easing of lockdown restrictions has not ushered a return to the daily commute.Analysts pinpointed the 15 locations across the UK with most to offer the post-Covid commuter, able to work from home at least some of the time. All are within half an hour of a major regional city or 90 minutes from London, and all have high broadband speeds – with at least 55% of homes having access to ultrafast broadband.The top 15 have been ranked by a wellbeing score, which combines official data in four categories – air quality, open space, access to green space and happiness.Glasgow tops chartThe affluent Glasgow suburb of Giffnock, famed for its golf courses, stately villas and red sandstone houses made first place. At just 16 minutes from the centre of Scotland’s largest city, it edges historic Kirkintilloch – the ‘canal capital of Scotland’ – into second place.England’s star performers both boast a world-class academic pedigree. Third-placed Cambridge is 49 minutes from London by train, and pips its Boat Race rival, fourth-placed Oxford – which is 57 minutes from the capital – thanks to its higher wellbeing score.Jonathan Hopper, CEO of Garrington Property Finders, said: “Three months of lockdown have led many of us to reassess what we want from our homes. Our research shows more than half of would-be buyers have changed their requirements since March, with gardens, open space and faster broadband emerging as top priorities.“Two out of five workers are still working from home, and many of us may never go back to a daily commute.  Post-Covid commuting is likely to look very different, and we’re seeing a stream of digital commuters – who are less tied to the large cities and able to work from home some of the time – explore new areas offering better value, more space and a better quality of life.”Covid sparks rural retreat Workers shun commuting Escape to the country July 31, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

Iranian minister sacked after Oxford forgery

Posted on by

first_imgIran’s parliament has voted to sack Ali Kordan after he admitted that his Oxford degree in Law was forged.According to reports 188 MPs, both conservatives and moderates, out of a total of 247, voted to remove Kordan from office.Now Iran’s former Interior Minister, Kordan came to international attention in August when Oxford University released an official statement denying that Mr Kordan had ever received a Law degree from the institution.Copies of the degree were later released onto the internet via Iranian political websites and the diploma was revealed to be a crude forgery riddled with spelling and grammatical errors.At the time, Oxford University confirmed that the academics who ‘signed’ the diploma had all held Oxford posts, but never in the field of Law, and they would never have signed degree diplomas either.The vote to expel Kordan from parliament comes after 20 Iranian ministers called for his impeachment last month.last_img read more
