According to the information obtained by JED, the governor brought a complaint against Kamango over an article listing a series of criticisms by members of the provincial parliament who elected him governor. February 24, 2021 Find out more News February 11, 2020 Congolese journalist jailed for “insulting” provincial governor News In a report published on 23 January, JED described Félix Tshisekedi’s first year as president as “worrying,” with nearly 100 abuses of different kinds against journalists and media outlets, including 14 cases of journalists being arrested and held for varying periods. Like JED, RSF regrets that the new government has taken no significant political, judicial or security measures to make journalists’ work safer. Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo “We call for the unconditional release of this journalist, who should not be prison, and we reiterate our call for an urgent moratorium on arrests of journalists in connection with their work, pending legislative reform that abolishes prison sentences for press offences.” When RSF and JED met jointly with President Tshisekedi on the sidelines of the Paris Peace Forum on 12 November, he expressed support for the idea of a moratorium on arrests of journalists in connection with their work pending an overhaul of the 1996 press law. RSF and JED also urged him to quickly adopt a mechanism to protect journalists, of which the first step would be appointing a network of focal points in government agencies and ministries concerned with press freedom. The DRC is ranked 154th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.last_img read more

German firms plan renewable friendly power-to-gas storage

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:FRANKFURT—Major German power and gas grid firms Amprion and Open Grid Europe (OGE) unveiled plans on Wednesday to jointly build large power-to-gas (ptg) plants next decade, seeking to harness a new technology to help store and transport renewable energy.The two said they had presented the proposals to Germany’s energy regulator, the Federal Network Agency, with a view to securing permission for plans that stretch to 2030, a period when Germany is phasing in tougher climate protection goals.“We are looking at 50 to 100 megawatt (MW) size ptg plants, potentially in Lower Saxony or northern North-Rhine Westphalia state,” Amprion board member Hans-Juergen Brick said by phone after a press conference in Berlin. “A first plant could go up in 2022 or early 2023,” he added.Ptg technology offers a way to solve the storage problem of volatile electricity output from wind and sunshine by running it through water to split it into oxygen and hydrogen, which can be used as a transport fuel or fed into gas grids.So far, ptg plants have only been up to 6 MW in size, at non-commercial test locations. “While government plans say they want 2,000-3,000 MW of power storage by 2030, we won’t get far with a maximum 6 MW per plant,” Brick said.Amprion’s annual report showed that of Germany’s targeted 153 gigawatts (GW) of installed renewable capacity by 2030, 60 percent has already been put in. But only 11 percent of a total 7,900 km of new power lines designated to accompany the new capacity has been built. This has resulted in northern Germany often wasting excess wind power, while the industrial south risks shortfalls.More: German power, gas grids cooperate on storage plans up to 2030 German firms plan renewable friendly power-to-gas storagelast_img read more

A German train company says Climate Activist Greta Thunberg is “full of hot air”

first_imgThunberg tweeted of herself sitting amid bags and suitcases on the floor of what she called “overcrowded trains through Germany.”The company released a statement apologizing and saying they “continue working hard on getting more trains, connections and seats.”They also thanked Thunberg for supporting the company’s battle against climate change.But upon reflection, Deutsche Bahn said that Thunberg’s “overcrowded” claims were just hot air.DB responded testily, pointing out that Thunberg had travelled in first class during her journey through Germany.“Dear Greta, thanks for supporting us railway workers in our fight against climate change. We are happy that you travelled with us on the ICE 174 on Saturday,” tweeted DB’s official account in German.“It would have been nicer if you had also mentioned the friendly and competent manner in which you were treated by staff at your seat in first class,” they added.The company then followed up the tweets with a press release, in which they added that Greta’s travel companions “were sitting in first class from Frankfurt onwards”.Thunberg hit back on Twitter, claiming she had found a seat at a stop after Frankfurt, which she said was “no problem”.The rail company claimed that the teenager had a seat in first class between Kassel and Hamburg and that other members of her team were already sitting in first class from Frankfurt onwards.“It would have been even nicer if you had also reported how friendly and competently our team served you at your seat in first class,” the company added.Thunberg then claimed that jam-packed trains were actually great and having to sit on the floor wasn’t an issue. A German railway company has taken back an apology they made to Greta Thunberg after they realized the climate activist wasn’t schlepping it on the train’s floor but instead was treated “friendly” in first class.Thunberg, 16, provoked a testy reaction from Germany’s oft-maligned rail operator when she tweeted from a DB train on her journey home from the COP25 climate summit in Madrid.“Traveling on overcrowded trains through Germany. And I’m finally on my way home!” wrote Thunberg above a picture of herself sitting on the floor of a carriage surrounded by suitcases.Greta Thunberg, a self-described activist with psychological problems, wrote that she was travelling on overcrowded trains through Germany. It turns out that she had a first class train ticket but opted to sit on the ground without any reason! SHAME ON YOU! #GretaThunberg pic.twitter.com/2JeE0ZORWj— Donald J.

Alexa assists authorities in the takedown of a burglar

first_imgAuthorities in Ormond Beach Florida are crediting an Amazon Alexa device with helping them arrest a thief who broke into an assisted living facility and attempted to rob one of the residents.The incident was reported at the Brookdale Assisted Living Facility on December 22nd.Officials say 47-year-old Russell Bannister entered an elderly resident’s room while they were away, and stole cash and credit cards from the room. While Bannister was in the room, however, the resident’s Alexa device notified a relative that someone other than the resident had entered the room. The relative immediately went to the room to see what was going on and found Bannister going through their loved- ones things.When Bannister noticed the other person, he fled the scene on foot but was apprehended by police a short while after the relative contacted the police.During questioning, Bannister told the officer that his name was James Gowgiallo and that he was at the assisted living facility because he was trying to visit his aunt. Bannister told the officer that a staff member informed him that his aunt was not at the facility and as he was speaking with that staff member, he was forced to flee the scene because another person began threatening him and then attacked him.Bannister told the officer that despite being attacked,  he did not want to press charges against that person and that he just really wanted to go home.After speaking more with Bannister, the officer determined that Bannister was lying about the incident. He is now facing multiple charges including an organized scheme to defraud, burglary of an occupied dwelling, burglary with assault or battery, and fleeing the scene.This is not Bannister’s first arrest for attempting to defraud an elderly person. Authorities say Bannister is known in the area for defrauding elderly people by offering to do handy work in exchange for cash but takes the payment without doing the work.last_img read more

first_imgThe front will bring with it just a 20 percent chance of showers on Monday, and partly sunny to sunny skies through Tuesday. A chance of showers will return on Wednesday.The normal daytime high for this time of year in our region is 75 degrees, with an overnight low of 57.Northwest winds coming behind Monday’s front will increase winds on Tuesday, with gusts as high as 22 mph along the coast, in addition to hazardous ocean conditions and a high risk of rip currents at Palm Beach County beaches.Temperatures will begin to warm up again on Wednesday, with winds shifting from the east and a high near 70. Time to break out the jackets, sweaters, and extra blankets….for a few days, at least.A powerful cold front coming across South Florida through Monday will cause temperatures to plummet overnight into the 40s along the coast and into the 30s inland, where a wind chill advisory is possible.The front is forecast to put daytime highs on Tuesday at around 65 degrees in West Palm Beach.By Wednesday morning, we’ll wake up to temperatures in the upper 40s at the coast and the mid-40s in the western communities.Areas north and west of Lake Okeechobee could also feel temperatures in the upper 30s, and meteorologists with the National Weather Service say a wind chill advisory could be necessary.“While frost is not expected to be a concern since winds should stay around 10 mph or more overnight, a wind chill advisory will be possible for some of the interior portions of the area,” Miami meteorologists said in their Monday forecast.A wind chill advisory is issued whenever the feels-like temperature is 35 degrees or less and winds are above 5 mph for three hours or more.last_img read more
