Broadcasters must get permission to provide premium rate services

first_img Broadcasters will from 18 March have to seek permission from PhonepayPlus (previously ICSTIS) to provide premium rate services (PRS). This follows the announcement that Ofcom will amend TV broadcasting licences to make the licensees directly accountable for PRS in programmes.At the moment this does not affect radio programmes, although that will be reviewd in the next few months.Before they will be granted permission, providers must meet a number of conditions including:*Ensuring that all valid viewer responses are made available for the broadcaster to consider in good time*Closing telephone lines promptly when an announcement is made to that effect*electing competition winners at random from all correct entries and*Banning changes to operational systems or procedures without express authorisation from one of the provider’s senior managers.Providers will only need to apply for permission once and that will cover all broadcast PRS services they offer.This is the result of the Ayre inquiry into the scandals that rocked the broadcasting world in 2007 and included programmes like Richard and Judy and Blue Peter. All programmes, including Strictly Come Dancing, which raises money for Children in Need, will be covered by the new Howard Lake | 20 February 2008 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Limerick Chamber calls for measures to support Shannon and regional recovery

In all of those announcements Shannon Airport was cited a key influencer in deciding to set up in the region, she said.“So much employment in the Mid West relies on route connectivity through Shannon. It’s catchment has over 40% of all foreign direct investment from the US and it is critically important for tourism, given that it is the gateway airport to the Wild Atlantic Way. So, it’s essential that Shannon is supported and primed for recovery when aviation gets going again.  We need to begin planning for the recovery that will inevitably come. Aer Lingus’ services at Shannon will be critical to that.“Therefore, the Chamber believes it is essential that any government subsidies or supports to airlines will be contingent upon commitments from airlines to increase regional route connectivity.” WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Twitter Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League openerlast_img read more

Man arrested who allegedly threatened Hispanics, believed Trump wanted a ‘racial war’

first_imgwingedwolf/iStock(SEATTLE) — The Department of Justice announced the arrest of a Maryland man on Tuesday who allegedly sent threatening messages to a Spanish restaurant employee and said he wanted to kill every Hispanic person in Miami. The 35-year-old man, Eric Lin, repeatedly expressed an affinity for President Donald Trump, who he said he believed wanted to start a “Racial War” that would result in the extermination of all non-whites, according to the DOJ.  I Thank God everyday President Donald John Trump is President and that he will launch a Racial War and Crusade,” Lin allegedly wrote in one message, adding that he believed Trump would put every “dangerous non-White or Ethnically or Culturally Foreign group ‘In Line’… that they will either be sent to ‘Concentration Camps’ or dealt with Ruthlessly and Vigorously by the United States Military.”Lin, a Maryland native, was arrested in Seattle on Tuesday over the series of threatening messages after the Miami Police alerted the FBI about a tip they received from the restaurant employee’s mother.In an interview with the FBI, the employee printed more than 150 pages worth of messages sent to her by Lin, according to a court filing. The employee also said Lin would frequently visit the restaurant and use language that echoed his disturbing Facebook messages.The messages included racist language threatening extermination of all Hispanics, and authorities said Lin once sent a picture of himself with Hitler’s face superimposed over his own. He went into gruesome detail saying how he would dismember the employee and eat them “like eating a steak.”After obtaining a search warrant from Facebook, investigators found messages Lin had sent asking another individual to travel to Miami to injure and kidnap the restaurant worker, offering to pay the person as much as $25,000 to do so.“The Plan is you… convince her that you are Rich White Americans people she looks up to,” the message read. “And then get her into a Rented House or Mansion and then chain her up and put her in a Rubber made Plastic Bin. Then you got to Drive her to Seattle, Washington upon which I will pay you $25,000 cash. You don’t need to kill her or hurt her so at most you will be charged with Kidnapping.”The case follows what has become a trend of Trump’s name being invoked in direct connection with violent acts, threats of violence or allegations of assault. A nationwide review conducted by ABC News has identified at least 36 such criminal cases, including nine where perpetrators hailed Trump in the midst or immediate aftermath of physically attacking innocent victims. In another 10 cases, perpetrators cheered or defended Trump while taunting or threatening others. And in another 10 cases, Trump and his rhetoric were cited in court to explain a defendant’s violent or threatening behavior.Lin has not yet entered a plea in the case and he remains in federal custody in Seattle.

President Energy commissions new Rio Negro gas pipeline in Argentina

first_img President Energy commissions new gas pipeline in Argentina. (Credit: Pixabay/ds_30) UK-based oil and gas company, President Energy has announced that it has commissioned a new Rio Negro pipeline pipeline along with associated infrastructure in Argentina.The new 16km pipeline section is located between Puesto Prado and Las Bases facilities in Rio Negro province.The commissioning of the new section enables a greater volume of gas to flow through the company’s total 70km pipeline to market.Cost of all the pipeline work was about $5mPresident Energy said that the work which included engineering, design, permitting and procurement for the project was completed without any incident on budget and on time.The project was constructed with a cost of about $5m and included civil works, installation of compressors and dehydration units in both Angostura and Las Bases.A major reconstruction work in Angostora, Las Bases, and Estancia Vieja fields was also made to meet international industry standards.President Energy said that the net gas production at Estancia Vieja field is being ramped up with gas flowing to market at a higher volume than any time before in the field.It also said that when the ramp-up progresses to an appropriate level, which is estimated in the next few days, another gas production volume announcement will be made.With the installation of a larger scale compressor and opening up of more shut-in wells in Estancia Vieja which are expected in the second quarter of the year, it is expected that the group production is set to rise by further 800 boepd.As a result, the total gas production by on or near the end of the first half would be about 2,000 boepd from President’s Neuquen basin assets.In October last year, President Energy signed an agreement to acquire an exploration contract from Compañia General De Combustibles (CGC) in Argentina. The commissioning of the new section enables a greater volume of gas to flow through the company’s total 70km pipeline to marketlast_img read more

OUCA Bullingdon ban reversed after motion branded ‘unconstitutional’

first_imgThe Oxford University Conservative Association’s (OUCA) ban of Bullingdon Club members has been terminated, following a disciplinary meeting which found the passing of the motion to be unconstitutional.Cherwell understands that a number of concerns were raised around the handling of the motion, the most prominent of which being that several non-OUCA attended last week’s meeting and voted for the ban.The OUCA Disciplinary Committee alleged that the votes of several non-OUCA members were counted on several motions brought in the meeting of Council held in 1st week, including on the motion to ban Bullingdon members.The Committee therefore ruled that last week’s verdict on the ban be nullified.In addition to the ban motion, last week’s passing of a motion to change all pronouns in the OUCA constitution from ‘he’ to ‘they’ was also overturned.OUCA President Ben Etty told Cherwell: “The overturning of the Bullingdon ban on a constitutional technicality is very disappointing, but it is only a minor setback. The ban will be re-proposed very soon and I’m confident this time that the much-needed change, supported by the vast majority of the membership, will be made permanent.”Neither the ban nor the pronoun amendment were re-proposed at the meeting of Council this week.Last week, Cherwell reported that Etty justified the proscription of Bullingdon members on the grounds that “if there was another story in the national press, it would be my face on it.”This came despite his public claim that the ban was intended to “symbolise our desire to become a more inclusive association.”Etty, who had supported past motions to ban the Bullingdon from the association, told Cherwell: “This was not a personally-motivated proposal, but was done in the best interests of the members of this association and the wider Conservative Party.“In my view, this is something that was very long overdue for any self-respecting political organisation, and I’m confident that the vast majority of our members agree with me.”There had also been suggestions from several members that Etty had “packed the room” with supporters – a suggestion that seems to have played out following the disciplinary ruling.Minutes from the meeting of Council last Wednesday show ten OUCA members leaving the meeting promptly after the motion to ban Bullingdon members passed, six of whom attend the President’s college.A previous attempt to ban Bullingdon members from OUCA came in Hilary term of this year, in the wake of negative coverage of the drunken behaviour of the Association’s members. However, the amendment was voted down overwhelmingly by members, as was another amendment attempt the following term.At the time, then President and supporter of the amendment, Timothy Doyle, told Cherwell he believed some members “feared [a ban] would lead to maliciously-targeted proscriptions of student societies to prevent individual members’ holding office”.last_img read more

Former Attorney General Eric Holder speaks on voting rights

first_imgThis past Friday, Eric Holder, former Attorney General of the United States, spoke on voting rights as part of the Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary lecture series. Hosted by the Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights, the lecture series features scholars and leaders from around the world to better understand systematic racism and racial justice.Holder held office from 2009 through 2015 during former President Barack Obama’s tenure, and he is now a partner at Covington & Burling LLP and chairs the board of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, an organization devoted to addressing the issue of gerrymandering. Elizabeth Prater | The Observer Eric Holder, the 82nd Attorney General of the U.S., spoke on voter suppression in America, addressing structural inequality that still persists today.The lecture began by addressing the relevant history and context of voter suppression, addressing the time period after the passage of the 15th amendment, which prohibited the denial of the right to vote on the basis of race.“In the post-Civil War era, you had a flowering of Black voter participation, and frankly, the creation of Black political power that threatened the status quo, particularly in the South and measures were then put in place to disenfranchise newly freed people,” Holder said. “Poll taxes, literacy tests, the use of violence, to make sure that people did not register and then did not vote.”Holder described how the Civil Rights Acts of the 1960s combatted these obstacles.“The [1965] Voting Rights Act is justifiability called the ‘crown jewel of the civil rights movement.’ It essentially put under federal examination the Old South and those states that had a history of discrimination,” Holder said.Holder continued to explain that any changes to the voting system would then have to go through the Justice Department.“That was something that led to the flower again of voter participation, but also, the rebirth of Black political power,” Holder said. “You see an astronomical leap in the number of Black political officials.”Through his work in the Redistricting Committee, Holder addressed some of the systemic racial measures that have taken place in the U.S.“If you have huge numbers of Black people in a district or in an area in the South, or in the North, you come up with ways in which through the process called gerrymandering, you minimize that power,” Holder said. “You draw district lines in such a way that you encapsulate Black people into just one district or crack and spread them out over a number of districts. Either way, you really kind of minimize the amount of power that African American communities should have.”While partisan gerrymandering as existed for decades, Holder said racial gerrymandering has gained more traction in recent years.“As African Americans become more closely identified with the Democratic Party, there is kind of an overlap between partisan gerrymandering and racial gerrymandering,” Holder said. “There are sometimes, and very often, a part of the same thing.”Durham asked for Holder’s opinion on the Supreme Court’s recent decision that states that they will no longer be addressing partisan gerrymandering cases.“I think that’s an awful decision,” Holder said. “Why do the federal courts exist, but to somehow grapple and resolve these issues? I think that the notion that gerrymandering has been with us almost as long as we have been a republic doesn’t mean it is something that we should accept, being partisan or racial gerrymanders.”Holder said he thought the court’s decision “really turns its back on protecting our democracy.”The discussion continued to address voter suppression that may appear neutral, but may impact more significantly marginalized communities, such as the requirement of a photo ID.“African Americans and Hispanic Americans don’t have driver’s licenses to the extent that their white counterparts do. But it even goes a little beyond that,” Holder said. “ In Texas, if you look at the way the law was written there, if you had a state-issues license to be able to carry a gun… that was fine. If you had a University of Texas State issued photo ID, that was not acceptable.”Holder also addressed concerns of voter fraud in discussing photo ID laws.“These unnecessary photo ID laws, supposedly, it is to try to protect the voting system form in-person voter fraud. Brennan Center has done a study and said that you’re more likely to be hit by lightning than cast an in-person fraudulent vote.”Holder said that this isn’t to say voter fraud doesn’t exist, but rather, the events are very isolated and these measures are drastic, given the “negative collateral impacts of these measures.”Holder ended the discussion by leaving book recommendations to learn more about the topics discussed, such as “Slavery by Another Name” by Douglas Blackmon and “The Second Founding” by Eric Foner. Additionally, addressing the large undergraduate student body that was attending the lecture, he gave a call to action to the young audience.“You see the problems, now the question is what are we going to do as a nation to deal, deal with those problems? And this is not something that we simply leave to our elected leaders,” Holder said. “The question is what are we as individual citizens, going to do, to be a part of the process of electoral reform?”Tags: Building an Anti-Racist Vocabulary, Civil Rights Act, Klau Center for Civil and Human Rightslast_img read more
