RSF’s Algeria correspondent, Khaled Drareni, to be retried

first_img Algeria pressures reporters by delaying renewal of accreditation March 25, 2021 RSF’s Algeria correspondent, Khaled Drareni, to be retried Harassment of Algerian reporters intensifies in run-up to parliamentary elections to go further Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on Algeria’s prosecutors to drop all proceedings against its correspondent, Khaled Drareni, after the country’s supreme court today accepted his lawyer’s appeal without overturning his conviction, in effect ordering a retrial. The supreme court’s decision was issued exactly one year after a court issued a detention order for Drareni, who is also the French TV channel TV5 Monde’s correspondent and the editor of the Algiers-based Casbah Tribune news website. “This is a victory with a bitter taste, after 11 months of arbitrary detention,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We regret that the Algerian supreme court did not terminate Khaled Drareni’s prosecution and we call on the prosecutor’s office to drop the proceedings against him at once.”Drareni was arrested for the first time on 7 March 2020. Released two days later, he remained under judicial control for 15 days and was finally re-arrested on 29 March 2020 while covering one of the regular “Hirak” anti-government street protests. Held in Kolea prison, near Algiers, he was put on trial and was sentenced on 15 September 2020 to two years in prison on charges of “inciting an unauthorised demonstration” and “endangering state security.” He was released provisionally under a presidential pardon on 19 February 2021.Algeria is ranked 146th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.  AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Activities in the fieldProtecting journalists ImprisonedEnvironmentFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts May 18, 2021 Find out more AlgeriaMiddle East – North Africa Activities in the fieldProtecting journalists ImprisonedEnvironmentFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment Algeria : Reporter jailed after covering Tuareg protests in southern Algeria May 12, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en News News Follow the news on Algeria April 29, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — January 24, 2018

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180124_RyanMartinToday should be the coldest day of the week over most of the state. We saw cold air start to blast in behind a second cold front yesterday, and today, Canadian high pressure drifts right over the top of Ohio. This will keep temps mostly below freezing over a majority of the state, but down south we can see temps do slightly better. We also expect more sun through the day today than we have seen this week so far.Tomorrow will not see good southwest winds develop until late in the day. So, we likely see temps a little better than today, but will put full moderation of temps off for 1 more day. The winds pick up in intensity going into Friday, and that will be where we see the biggest temperatures jump. Friday temps will be well above normal statewide, followed by similar conditions SaturdayRains move into Ohio later Saturday in the afternoon, although clouds build sooner than that. Rains Saturday into early Sunday still look to be from .25”-1”, with the lower end of the range north and west, and the upper end of the range in south and east. The map shows rain totals through midday Sunday. Cold air rushing in behind the front for Sunday still looks like it will not catch up to some of the moisture over the eastern part of the state, so at this time, we are taking mention of snow out of our Sunday forecast. The moisture looks to be more compact along this front and not drawn out, so that limits the chances. In fact, we see no serious precipitation by Sunday afternoon and Sunday evening. . However, cold air will move over the state Sunday, as Canadian high pressure returns and temps go below normal.North and northwest winds may create a bit of lake effect snow on Monday, but accumulations are minor. The normal lake effect areas will be watched closely, but only flurries are expected in many areas.Southwest winds are back for Wednesday, making another high on our temperature roller coaster. WE expect above normal temps for Wednesday and Thursday as we flip the calendar. However, those southwest winds at midweek may be running from 15-30 mph, meaning wind chills will be in play and it will not be an exceptionally nice set up. Still, 40s and 50s can move in under the right circumstances.Strong winds usually signal a significant event upcoming. And, as we move into the 2nd, we could be looking at a very interesting storm complex. We had been watching a significant event for late the 3rd into the 4th, and that looks to come a little quicker now. The European model has nearly all the moisture coming with the cold air, meaning we would be looking at epic snows. However, other models are not as sure as of yet. An all snow set up looks tantalizing, but also does not look right to us this morning. We think we will see rain to start, and then a changeover to snow as cold air arrives. But, either way, the liquid available to this system would be upwards of 1 inch, meaning whatever happens, liquid equivalent precipitation will be significant. This is a system to watch, and we will be quick to update our thoughts as we move forward.The extended period has a minor clipper for the 4th into the 5th, and another clipper around the 8th. Cold air will be in for the entire area as we start off February, and that means these clippers will likely bring additional light snow.last_img read more

Engaging Military Parents in Family Skills Training

first_imgBy Jay Morse & Heidi Radunovich, PhDCreative Commons [Flickr, Area I Community Baby Shower, June 2, 2012]The ADAPT (After Deployment, Adaptive Parenting Tools) parent training program has been developed for military parents who are seeking to improve their parenting skills [1].  Parent participation in the study was high and preliminary data from the study have indicated that military parents – both the military member and spouse – are willing to participate in parenting skills training.The ADAPT program was developed by modifying one of the interventions developed through the empirically tested Parent Management Training – Oregon (PMTO) model.  The ADAPT program was modified to address the specific needs of military parents after deployment.  Adaptations included the military cultural context, reintegration issues, combat stress reactions and their impact on the family and parenting, and ways to manage roadblocks to group participation.The program addresses 5 positive parenting practices: (1) skills encouragement; (2) positive involvement; (3) family problem-solving; (4) monitoring; and, (5) effective discipline.  Parenting skills were taught weekly for 14, 2-hour group sessions.  In addition to group training sessions, ADAPT provided web-based training modules that included skill and practice videos, mindfulness exercises, and home practice assignments.  A total of 42 families participated in this first study, who participated in groups of 5-6 families.  An almost equal number of fathers and mothers participated in the study (39 mothers and 36 fathers).  The most common number of children in the family was 2, with 44% of the families reporting 3 or more children.  The National Guard and Reserve (NG/R) participant group was skewed towards higher ranks.  Almost one-third (31%) of the participants were officers compared with a national average of 15% officers in the NG/R.  Recruitment was measured by the count of families that participated in at least one group session.  Retention measures included weekly attendance, completion of home practice assignments, and usage of online tools.  Acceptability of the program was measured using a 20-item questionnaire targeting participant satisfaction, group experience, and home practice satisfaction.Of the 42 families invited to attend group sessions, 33 families attended at least one session.  On average, at least one parent attended 10 sessions, with 79% attending at least 50% of the sessions.  Over one-half of the families accessed the online tools at least once.  Use of the online tools varied greatly, with an average use of 15 times during the study period.  Families used summaries the most (33%), followed by knowledge checks (32%), videos (30%), and handouts (25%).  The mindfulness exercises were the least utilized online tool, with only 19% of families accessing the mindfulness module.  Families that actively participated in group sessions were more likely to access the online training modules.Of particular note, several families in the study indicated that they enjoyed ADAPT because the program was consistent with the values associated with military life, such as structure, clarity, and routines.  The authors also reported that families seemed to be more willing to participate when the program emphasized prevention and was offered in the form of education, particularly in a community setting.This study did not assess behavior change in the families who participated, but instead focused on utilization of and satisfaction with the ADAPT program.  It appears that adaptations made to the PMTO program to create the ADAPT program were well-received by this audience. Clinicians who work with military families that experience deployment may want to consider using the ADAPT program to assist with reintegration.References[1] Gewirtz, A. H., Pinna, K. M., Hanson, S.
