Angolan satellite TV service drops two Portuguese channels

first_img Owned by Isabel dos Santos, the daughter of President Eduardo dos Santos, ZAP dropped the SIC Noticias and SIC Internacional TV channels yesterday. The company described the move as no more than a routine adjustment of the channels it offers. But the move came just days after SIC broadcast an investigative report about a 2014 financial scandal implicating the president.SIC previously annoyed the government last November by broadcasting a report entitled, “Angola, a country rich with 20 million poor people,” which questioned the record of Dos Santos’ 37 years as president.Dos Santos subsequently said he no longer wanted to stand for reelection in August 2017 and named Gen. Joâo Manuel Gonçalves Lourenço, a former defence minister, as the ruling party’s presidential candidate.“It is hard not to see the government’s hand behind ZAP’s unilateral decision to drop these two TV channels,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “With just months to go to the presidential election, the government should encourage media pluralism by allowing the Angolan media to work freely.”In Angola, the Dos Santos family and its allies control all state and privately-owned media that cover the entire country. Aside from a few small opposition media outlets, freely reported news and information can only be found online – on one or two websites and social networks. But they are also subjected to pressure.Rafael Marques, a journalist who edits the Maka Angola anti-corruption website, received a summons from the interior ministry last December after posting a story accusing prosecutor general João Maria de Sousa of involvement in illegal land deals. Mariano Bras, a journalist who reprinted the story in his weekly O Crime, was also summoned. Both are facing a possible six-month jail sentence for criminal defamation.Years of lawsuits and criminal proceedings against Marques by the Angolan army in both Angola and Portugal finally ended in 2015. Marques was facing up to 14 years in prison on 24 counts in connection with his book “Diamantes de Sangue, Corrupção e Tortura em Angola,” which accused the army of involvement in diamond trafficking.Although the book is censored, its publisher has made it available online and it can be downloaded from RSF’s website.The suspensions and legal proceedings have coincided with disturbing measures to curtail civil liberties. Under a package of “social communication” laws passed last November, full control over the country’s media was awarded to a Regulatory Council that is dominated by the ruling-party.Seventeen young people were arrested in March 2016 and were imprisoned for several months just for reading and commenting on a book about non-violent action.Angola is ranked 123rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

A lot of those fears have abated, and that’s a good thing.”“But we all recognize that we’re living in a period of extreme volatility with respect to interest rate changes as people try and gauge the future course of the economy.”To Leech the key takeaway is that when confronted with uncertainty, the Fed has chosen “a dovish course.” He expects this to be the case going forward as well.“The growth and inflation backdrop in the U.S. has been so subdued for so long,” he said. “The Fed has consistently overestimated growth … It has consistently expected the economy to do much better than actually turned out to be the case.”This makes it difficult to predict when the Fed will move to raise interest rates.“[The Fed’s] message reflects the fact that there still is uncertainty with respect to the outlook for growth,” Leech said. “That puts the market in a challenging position. Market reaction is going to be very volatile because the Fed may go in September, it may go in December, it may not. When you start talking about that kind of uncertainly, each data point is important.”A key concern for Leech and the Western Asset team is inflation, just as it is for the Fed.“The Fed again has consistently overestimated inflation,” Leech said. “Inflation has been subdued. It’s actually been declining more recently because of the commodity price pass-through. The Fed expects that rate to be stable and to be moving up quite sharply.”Unlike the Fed’s growth forecast, which was revised downward recently, its inflation forecast has remained steady, with expectations for it to return to the 2 percent level in the not too distant future.“Our forecast has been more cautious,” Leech said. “If we’re right that the global and U.S. recovery will stay on track, we will get inflation to stabilize and eventually move up. But this process, in our view, is going to take longer than the Fed is suggesting.”“The Fed is really walking a fine line. It really wants to get off zero and it’s struggling with how to get this lift-off in rates started. It doesn’t want to do it in any way, shape or form that would upset the recovery or upset the markets. That’s why, when confronted with uncertainty or data that are not straightforwardly suggestive of a move, the Fed has responded in a dovish fashion. We continue to believe that is going to be the case, based on the fragility of the global recovery.”As for when the Fed will actually raise rates, Leech leaned toward a conservative view.“We had expected that the Fed would move in September,” he said. “We still think that is better than a 50-50 shot. Our forecast is for a 2 to 2 1/2 percent growth rate. The Fed’s implicit growth rate for the second half of the year is something like 2 to 2 3/4 percent. If we’re near the top end of the range, the Fed could easily go in September.”“But it’s going to be a close call, based on the guidance that the Fed has given.”As for Europe, Leech believes it will experience a positive growth rate this year.“We’re in the 1 1/2 percent growth camp,” he reported. “Lending has picked up in Europe.”China and many emerging market economies draw concern from the Western Asset team.“Chinese growth is slowing, deliberately on a longer term trend, but this year the data have been weak,” Leech said. “We continue to believe that China will avoid a hard landing this year. The monetary stimulus it put in place and the possibility of fiscal stimulus later in the year will allow it to avoid a hard landing and get back to its 7 percent growth target.”“But if we’re going to be wrong on that forecast, the risks have certainly risen to the downside.”With regard to fixed-income market positions, Leech reported that Western Asset has been underweight to the mortgage pass-through part of the market. “We did think this was going to be a sector that might not perform as well as some others,” he said. “This is the first year that mortgage pass-through performance has been negative relative to Treasuries in quite some time.”He also discussed prospects for the corporate bond sector.“It’s pretty attractive,” he said. “Historically, when the U.S. yield curve tends to steepen, the credit curve tends to flatten. In this case, a lot of stress and supply on the long end have provided an opportunity for investors to lock in spreads in the long end that are reasonably attractive.”As for the high-yield markets, Leech reported, “Last year in high-yield, it really, really mattered where you were more than anything else, and energy was by far and away the worst performer. This year energy’s done a little bit better than other measures. High-yield in general has done pretty well, but energy has been the best performer. We continue to think that that’ll be the case.”With the global economy recovering, aided by accommodative central bank policy, Leech believes oil prices will stabilize. This should only help high-yield energy prospects.“The market’s been encouraged that oil prices have stabilized near $60 a barrel the last couple of months. If they stabilize here, or recovery abroad over the next couple of years improves, high-yield energy is going to one of the brighter spots of the fixed-income spread sector markets.”When it comes to housing, Leech said that Western Asset believes prices have bottomed.“We are seeing an improvement trend that is going to be sustained,” he reported. “We’re not of the view that housing prices are going to run away and hide. Additionally, we are seeing some thawing in the lending from banks, so we are seeing an improved housing tone. That’s one of the bright spots of the economy. When you look at the fundamentals of mortgage payments to income, they are still well below average. So this is a sector where we do think defaults will stay low and we continue to hold our positions on this sector.”As for emerging markets, Leech sees a sector that has been challenged, for obvious reasons.“Weaker commodity prices, some diminution in global growth, have led many to believe that this sector is going to be out of favor. Many people have really given up on it. There’s an argument for the degree of difficulty, but we have to compare and contrast that with prices.”Western Asset likes the outlook for the emerging market space, particularly Mexico, India and Brazil.“Over time these countries are going to be in an improving trend,” Leech said. “Valuations of markets have really become compelling, even though their growth rates are under pressure from a commodity-exporting basis, but also a general soft global GDP framework.”When asked about the turmoil related to Greece, Leech said both sides have a lot to lose.“The Greece population would be much worse off if it had to leave the euro, and the European Central Bank (ECB) is cognizant of the challenges of having a bank meltdown or a Greece economy in chaos.”“The policy lines are tough. The ECB doesn’t want to continue to lend money indefinitely without some possibility Greece is going to take a much different tactic with respect to its economic policies, and the Greek government ran on kind of a one-issue platform that it would get a better deal without having to make meaningful adjustments. It’s a very tenuous situation. The headlines vary from day to day, and it really helps increase volatility, but we continue to think—knock wood—that a deal will be reached.”Leech concluded by observing that downside risks persist.“That’s why policymakers are very, very concerned, and that’s why they’re going to stay accommodative,” he said. “We believe that’s the right course. They need to stay accommodative. And accommodative monetary policy is going to be crucial for the ongoing global recovery.”“If Fed policy moves from zero to 50 basis points, or a year from now to 100 basis points, that’s going to cause a lot of people to think, oh my gosh, this is a very tough policy. That would still be a very, very accommodative rate, and that’s what the Fed’s trying to provide clarity on: how it is going to keep the markets understanding that it intends to be very, very accommodative, even if that doesn’t mean an absolute zero rate.”“We think this interest rate normalization path is going to proceed, but it’s going to be very, very slow. In that environment, we think spread sectors will continue to outperform government bonds.” Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

Philadelphia police commissioner apologizes for racially insensitive T-shirt

first_imgamphotora/iStock(PHILADELPHIA) — Philadelphia’s acting police commissioner apologized this week after images surfaced of a racially insensitive T-shirt she wore in the 1990s, prompting calls for her resignation.Christine Coulter ignited uproar when a 25-year-old photo showed her donning a white T-shirt with the words, “L.A.P.D. We Treat You Like a King,” written in black. The shirt appeared to make reference to the brutal Los Angeles police beating of Rodney King in 1991. The encounter between King, who is black, and four white officers was caught on video, but the officers were acquitted at trial, sparking violence, unrest and nationwide protests about racism and police brutality.Coulter said she didn’t realize at the time that the shirt was an apparent reference to the highly publicized King beating, but said she was “profoundly sorry” for wearing it, nonetheless. She previously said the photo had been taken during a gathering with other officers at the Jersey Shore when she was policing the city’s 25th district, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.“I sincerely hope that a careless decision that I made over 25 years ago doesn’t overshadow the work that I’ve done,” Coulter said Tuesday. “I am profoundly sorry for the pain that the shirt and the picture has caused, not to me, but to the city and the communities that we serve.”She delivered the apology during a city council hearing meant to address a report that uncovered more than 300 racist, sexist or biased social media posts by the city’s police officers.The findings — published in a report by the Plain View Project, a civil rights watchdog — resulted in 72 Philadelphia Police Department officers being placed on administrative leave in June. Several other officers resigned shortly after.Coulter opened her testimony at the pubic hearing by asking for a “few minutes to address concerns” surrounding the controversy. She signaled that the shirt was a gift.“Although, at the time I didn’t recognize the inference, as a police officer I should have and I should have more diligently examined the language on the shirt more carefully before accepting and ultimately wearing that shirt,” she said. “When I look at it now, through a 2019 lens, it is clear that it was a bad decision on my part and I would not wear that shirt today.”She said the incident involving King, who died in 2012, “highlighted dark times in policing” and inspired her to work with more fairness and compassion.Philadelphia Councilwoman Cindy Bass called on Coulter to immediately resign in the wake of the controversy. During the hearing, Bass read excerpts of a letter she said she sent to the city’s mayor demanding action.“It is my opinion it is inconceivable that she was unaware the T-shirt referenced a widely publicized brutal beating of a citizen by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department,” Bass said, garnering loud applause from some members of the gallery. “As a law enforcement professional who was not new to the force and clearly recalls the impact that the incident had on policing at the time, I believe that Ms. Coulter was knowledgeable of the inference of the statement.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Utah State Football’s Gary Andersen Only Wants Conference Games Played If Players Don’t Practice Before June 1

first_img Written by Brad James FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailLOGAN, Utah-Thursday, Utah State football coach Gary Andersen is advocating for the upcoming college football season to be shortened if players cannot commence some sort of mini-camp by June 1.The Aggies were able to get two spring practices in before the COVID-19 pandemic cancelled the remainder of them earlier this month.Andersen expressed his biggest fear is that injuries will skyrocket if the Aggies are to play a full season should there be no pre-June 1 camps or drills.If no football activities can occur before this date, Andersen has proposed that the Aggies only play a Mountain West Conference season.Utah State’s Mountain West season is to commence October 10 at home against San Diego State.Andersen concluded his statements by saying “we have to keep the kids [his USU football players] at the forefront.” Tags: Gary Andersen/USU Football March 26, 2020 /Coronavirus (COVID-19) related news and sports stories, Sports News – Local Utah State Football’s Gary Andersen Only Wants Conference Games Played If Players Don’t Practice Before June 1last_img read more

Richard Selwyn reveals why he quit ARLA and launched a new business

first_imgRichard Selwyn has worked in lettings since the mid-1990s in and around Hertfordshire and has been a passionate member of ARLA Propertymark until, late last year, he unexpectedly resigned as its President Elect.Here he talks to The Negotiator about why this happened, what the future holds and why he hasn’t returned to running an estate agency.Have you cut all ties with Propertymark?“My father passed away in October and I had to look at what was most important over the subsequent months including looking after my mother and dealing with my own emotions; so I spoke to David Cox [Chief Executive of ARLA] and said it wasn’t fair on ARLA or myself to carry on being President Elect or involved with Propertymark.“I would like to go back at some stage because I believe passionately in everything that the organisation offers.”Why have you set up your own consultancy?“My original plan was to reintegrate with agency after selling my business but there were some contractual constraints. My experience of running my own agency and being involved with ARLA Propertymark confirmed to me that there is a demand for the business consultancy that I am now offering.“Standards do vary in our industry extensively and I felt that it would be good to give something back, and ultimately no two businesses are the same and I am keen to roll up my sleeves and be really hands-on.“I’ve already been busy with a couple of clients doing mystery shopping, marketing initiatives, compliance checks and even staff interviewing.”Will you be helping agents with proptech too?“I have come across most of the proptech companies out there and my opinion is that the future will be a mixture of old school values, technology and exceptional service offerings.”Would you recommend to your clients that they exit the high street?“I don’t think it’s essential for an estate agent to be on the high street; social media and both traditional and online marketing can reach most of the market. Agents do have to review their costs.”Will ROPA create a greater demand for people like you?“It’s important that agents recognise that regulation is coming probably in two to three years and they need to start adapting and preparing for it now including training and looking at their processes.”    Richard Selwyn david cox arla propertymark January 24, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
