Children’s cancer charity to benefit from UK’s leading art, antiques and contemporary design fair

first_img Masterpiece London, which showcases the very best in fine and decorative arts and contemporary design, has selected CLIC Sargent, the leading cancer charity for children and young people, as its charity of the year for 2011.The fair will raise vital funds to help CLIC Sargent support children and young people with cancer across the UK, by hosting an exclusive charity party on the evening of Thursday 30 June. The ‘Masterpiece Midsummer Party in aid of CLIC Sargent’ will be an evening that combines fine art and entertainment, and guests will have a number of opportunities to support the charity through a special raffle, pledges and bidding for ‘money can’t buy’ items.CLIC Sargent Patron, and Chair of the organising committee, Lady Helen Taylor commented: “Masterpiece London was a resounding success when it launched in 2010, so we’re thrilled it has selected CLIC Sargent as the beneficiary of its charity party this year. With the support and generosity of guests at the event, we hope to raise a significant amount of money so CLIC Sargent can make a real difference to the lives of children and young people with cancer.”The Masterpiece Midsummer Party in aid of CLIC Sargent aims to raise more than £300,000 to fund CLIC Sargent’s work across the UK. It costs the charity around £3,750 to support each child or young person through treatment, but lack of funds means that CLIC Sargent can currently only help two out of three children and young people in need.Nicola Winwood, Fair Director said: “Masterpiece London is delighted to be supporting CLIC Sargent, our charity in 2011. The Fair’s high profile and premium offering will provide the perfect backdrop to The Masterpiece Midsummer Party making it an unforgettable fundraising evening. The work CLIC Sargent does to be there every step of the way for children and young people with cancer is second to none and we’re pleased to be able to help raise vital funds for this very worthwhile cause.Masterpiece London 2011 takes place from 30 June – 5 July, with a Preview on 29 June, on the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. The fair, which attracted over 18,000 visitors in 2010, provides a premium cultural experience for London residents, and UK and international visitors on a scale that no other art, antiques and contemporary design fair does.Tickets for the Masterpiece Midsummer Party in aid of CLIC Sargent can be purchased directly from the charity by calling +44 (0)20 8752 2883 or emailing [email protected] to editors:For more information about CLIC Sargent please contact Elana McIntyre, Senior Media Officer: [email protected] / +44 (0)20 8752 2833.

Supreme court ruling threatens survival of newspaper

first_img to go further Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown News June 2, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Supreme court ruling threatens survival of newspaper Reporters Without Borders voiced concern today that the newspaper Narodnaya Volya might have to close after a Belarus supreme court panel confirmed a 50 million ruble (20,000 euros) damages award against it for libelling former state TV chief Yahor Rybakov.It urged the court’s presidium to review the 31 May decision to ensure the damages were proportional to the offence so the paper did not have to close, which it said would “greatly worsen the difficult press freedom situation” in the country.Damages against journalists Marina Koktysh, of Narodnaya Volya, and Eleonora Yazerskaya, a former state TV presenter, were reduced by the panel to 1 million rubles (400 euros) each, but the award against the paper itself was maintained. Editor Iosif Seredich said the amount would “inevitably” force the paper to close.A Minsk court imposed the damages on 17 November last year for an October 2001 interview in the paper with Yazerskaya in which she said Rybakov was a bad manager.

Iran opens up markets but not prisons

first_img News Dozens of journalists and netizens imprisonedRanked 173rd out of 180 countries in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, Iran is one of the world’s most oppressive nations for journalists and netizens. And with a total of 38 journalists and netizens are currently detained, it is also one of the world’s biggest prisons for news and information providers.Four of the detained journalists were arrested on 2 November – International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists – just two weeks before President Rouhani’s visit.These four – Afarine Chitsaz of the daily Iran, Ehssan Mandarinier, the editor of the daily Farhikhteghan, Saman Safarzai of the monthly Andisher Poya and Issa Saharkhiz, a well-known independent journalist – were arrested for allegedly being members of “an illegal network linked with the governments of the US and Britain who were active in Iranian media.”On 9 October, the journalist and documentary filmmaker Kaivan Karimi was sentenced to six years in prison and 223 lashes on a charge of insulting Islam for greeting a woman with a kiss and a handshake. He was also convicted for making a documentary about post-revolution graffiti and a video for a singer living abroad.It should not be forgotten that Iran has never ratified the Convention against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment.Jason Rezaian’s 16-month-old nightmareOn 17 November, Jason Rezaian, a journalist with US and Iranian dual nationality who is the Washington Post’s Tehran correspondent, will have been held for a total of 483 days on a charge of “spying for a foreign power.”Revolutionary Guards in plain clothes arrested Rezaian at his Tehran home on 22 July 2014 along with his wife, Yeganeh Salehi, a journalist for The National, a newspaper based in the United Arab Emirates, and two other US citizens. Ever since his arrest, Rezaian has been mistreated in a section of Tehran’s Evin prison under Revolutionary Guard control. The main aim was to extract a confession and use it against him at his trial, which was held behind closed doors. Despite many appeals from international NGOs, he is still held.Internet surveillanceAround 100 netizens have been arrested, convicted or jailed – mainly on the basis of intelligence gathered by the Revolutionary Guards – since the moderate conservative Rouhani became president on 14 June 2013.This persecution is just an extension of the unprecedented crackdown that began immediately after President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s disputed reelection in 2009, in which at least 300 journalists and netizens were the victims of arbitrary arrest, torture and long jail sentences. With more than 40 million Internet users, according to official figures, Iran is one of the region’s most connected countries. The creation of a “Halal Internet,” ordered by Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, has not been abandoned. It has just changed name. The focus is now on “Intelligent Filtering,” which ensures that access to the Internet and above all to social networks is selective and controlled, and that the Revolutionary Guards can continue persecuting netizens.Media censorship and self-censorshipIran’s dynamic media are under constant pressure and have to censor information that is embarrassing for the regime. If they don’t, they risk intervention by a long list of censors – including judicial officials, the intelligence ministry and the Revolutionary Guards – who harass journalists and media outlets.Whether or not they were sentenced to a post-imprisonment ban on practicing their profession, journalists are unable to work again after being released. Publishers and editors receive clear instructions not to hire them.Compliant judges and illegal courtsUnder article 110 of the constitution, it is Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei who appoints the head of the judicial system. At the same time, journalists are usually prosecuted on the basis of information provided by the Revolutionary Guards, who take their orders directly from Khamenei. What room is there for judicial independence with Khamenei controlling both the Revolutionary Guards and the head of the judicial apparatus?Furthermore, although the constitution does not permit revolutionary courts, more than 60 percent of convicted journalists and netizens were tried before revolutionary courts.Finally, most of these trials are conducted secretly although one of the provisions of article 168 of the constitution stipulates that trials of political offences and media offences should be open to the public. IranMiddle East – North Africa As President Hassan Rouhani prepares to visit Paris on 17 November, Reporters Without Borders points out that imprisoned journalists, mass Internet surveillance and media censorship characterize the very disturbing state of freedom of information in Iran.

Free.Get all the latest Pasadena news, more than 10 fresh stories daily, 7 days a week at 7 a.m. Community News Dawson wins CIF D3 titleConsidering his near perfect junior season on the mound, there are even a string of superlatives that don’t do Dawson Netz justice.Even words like “awesome” and “dominant” and “unparalleled” don’t seem strong enough for a guy that refused for anything less than perfection.And while we say ‘near perfect,’ we mean it.Netz went 12-0 with a 0.26 ERA.That includes eight complete games, seven shutouts and two no-hitters.Netz set a new CIF record of 59 consecutive innings without allowing a run that wasn’t snapped until the fifth inning of the CIF-D3 opener against Palos Verdes.He allowed just three earned runs in 80 innings pitched in all of 2018, and found himself on the mound in one fashion or the other in all five of Maranatha’s five postseason games (and wins).Dawson delivering pitchNetz shut out Redlands on the road in the CIF-SS Division 3 semifinals, and because of the 10-inning per week rule in place, the MHS junior was eligible for just three innings last Saturday in the D3 title game against La Salle.Fortunately and quite timely for Maranatha, the Minutemen scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to take their first lead of the championship game.And once that happened, and knowing they were just three innings from a CIF championship, No. 27 walked calmly and with a purpose out of the third base dugout to the mound.While in the process of putting the game to bed, Netz got five of his nine outs via strikeout, including the final batter of the game to earn his school their first championship in eight years.For a competitor that always seems to be wearing his poker face throughout his battles, the picture of this quality young man realizing MHS had just accomplished their enormous expectations was pretty moving, and it was something we hadn’t really seen all season.Maranatha (27-4, 12-0) earned back the Olympic League title by going 12-0 and that 4-2 victory over La Salle at Cal State Fullerton last Saturday was their 20th consecutive win in 2018.Dawson on moundNetz’ record and ERA are just two of the incredible stats he put up this year, but there are more.He walked just 14 batters and struck out an area-best 117, for a better than 8-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio.For his better than great junior season on the mound, Dawson Netz has been named the 2018 Pasadena Sports Now Most Valuable Pitcher.His career (varsity) record through his junior year is now 20-4 and he still has one more season to pad those already gaudy numbers.What separates Netz from everyone else is literally his ability and confidence to throw any pitch in any count and with the control to spot his pitches throughout the strike zone.He’s so much smarter in his approach and mind set than almost any batter he faces, and his excellence in the classroom with a GPA north of 4.0 makes his life story even more remarkable.Early in the season, in one of the many conversations we had with Netz, he boldly claimed that anything short of a CIF championship would be considered a failed season.So, having the chance to be on the mound to close out the title, and doing so via strikeout had to make the reality of exceeding even the highest of expectations that much sweeter for Netz and his teammates.Dawson Netz, Matt Shupper, Devyn NetzFor those who have followed his career, and especially this season, you know Netz is committed to the University of Arizona for 2020.But with his stock soaring and thinking ahead to the possibility of yet one more season comparable to this one, most expect to see Netz drafted in the first round, which would give him the option to forego collegiate ball and begin his professional career immediately.When asked about the dilemma that could lay ahead next June, Netz didn’t want to look past his next game for his travel ball team, let alone even the first pitch of his senior season in late February of 2019, and it’s that focus and approach that add to his already elite status.Aside from the wins, the scoreless innings streak and the strikeout-to-walk ratio, another reason his stock continues to climb is that he started the season with a fastball clocked around 89 mph and finished the year having hit 94 on the gun.Roger Penticoff, who has led St. Anthony and Long Beach Jordan, and currently runs the Cerritos Valley Christian program said Netz is as good or better than any Division 1 pitcher he’s ever seen.This reporter, in a 19-year and counting career has covered current professional pitchers, including Jacob Faria of the Rays, Chase DeJong of Seattle, Shane Watson formerly of the Phillies and Justin Garza, who’s in the Indians system, and no pitcher we’ve seen has consistently made batters look worse than Netz did in 2018.His ascent, he has acknowledged, began in the 2017 playoffs when he came on after two rough starts by Charles Acker, the MHS hard-throwing lefty, and Netz used the opportunity to literally take over postseason games.Dawson Netz on Mound vs CVCThat confidence and effectiveness continued on to 2018 in a season for the ages.But consider one final thing when taking in what we all just witnessed, and in measuring Netz is his totality as a baseball player and competitor.In spite of limited at-bats, he batted .365 with 23 hits, he scored 17 runs, drove in 14 and doubled six times.He’s known for his pitching, but he’s tallied 72 hits and his coach, Matt Shupper, has already said to look for Netz in 2019 to play every day and contribute with his bat.Netz also made it clear that fellow pitchers Will Downing (4-0, 0.20 ERA), Max Blessinger (4-0, 2.57), Casey Popham (2-1, 2.62) and Charles Acker (3-1, 3.00) were incredibly vital throughout, but especially in the latter half of the season where they went eight consecutive games without allowing a run, not to mention their contributions in the postseason.For a guy that has never had an ERA in three prep seasons over 1.00, and with an expectation level somewhere in the stratosphere, 2019 should be a very entertaining season for all of us, including his teammates, coaches, family and even Netz himself.“I am obviously happy with the season I had and more importantly, the year we had in putting everything together and winning both the Olympic League and CIF (Division 3) championship. None of this could have been done without every teammate and coach that contributed in so many ways to our success.It is not easy to play this well over an entire season, and I couldn’t be more proud of my teammates for working hard all year to maintain our level of play. I feel mechanics-wise, I can work on my velocity and have a healthier arm motion, but all things considered, this was a great season, and I am proud to be part of it. I am not surprised at what we accomplished because it was our expectation, but we’re all very happy.”Quotable:Maranatha coach Matt Shupper: “I’ve never seen anyone shut down people that much and for that long. He took over in the playoffs last year as a closer and put up great numbers. His junior year went beyond even the sky-is-the-limit expectations we had for him. He throws several pitches for strikes and can move the ball in and out of the strike zone. He has a better game plan than anyone at this level. It’s a rare combo of mental and physical excellence. He is also his own harshest critic and is always finding ways to get better.”La Salle coach Eddie McKiernan: “Dawson is a special kid and he competes like a champion. His stuff will definitely play at the next level and I’ll certainly be rooting for that kid.”Maranatha second baseman Max Blessinger: “Dawson has been one of my teammates and best friends for longer than anyone else. That being said, I feel like I know him as well as anyone could on the baseball field. I absolutely love playing with him and I don’t think anyone appreciates his competitiveness and his refusal to settle for anything less than the best more than I do. These are qualities we’ve bounced off each other to accomplish things a lot of people would have not expected us to accomplish. He is a competitor and winner on the field and one of my best friends off it.”Maranatha shortstop Nick Iverson: “Dawson is amazing and any time he’s got the ball in his hand, it’s all on the offense to score runs, because we know he’s going to shut our opponents out. He’s a great teammate with good leadership skills and I have a lot of respect for him. I’ve never played with a guy that I’ve have so much confidence in to get the job done.”Maranatha catcher Ethan Firestone: “I’ve caught for a lot of great players, but when I first caught Dawson, I knew he was something special. He pitched in more than half our games (in the regular season), and in each game we played in the postseason. He is the best pitcher I have ever caught and he has command of every pitch he throws.”Maranatha pitcher Will Downing: “Dawson is a huge inspiration to me, a role model and a great friend that I have grown closer to through the 2018 season. He’s an amazing pitcher and I am sure he will have a great baseball career.”Maranatha pitcher-DH Casey Popham: “Dawson is a great pitcher. It’s pretty remarkable to see a junior hit 94 on the gun. He is one of the best pitchers around in the area and I have no doubt that he will be successful at the next level.”Dawson Netz By The Numbers:Pitching:Wins and Losses:2018: 12-02017: 5-32016: 3-1Earned Run Average:2018: 0.262017: 0.882016: 0.47Walks to Strikeouts:2018: 14 walks-117 strikeouts2017: 13-682016: 3-17Career Record:20-4Career ERA:0.53Career Strikeout-to-Walk Ratio:30 Walks to 202 StrikeoutsBatting:2018: .365 with 23 hits, 17 runs, 14 RBIs, 6 doubles2017: .301 with 25 hits, 12 runs, 13 RBIs, 4 doubles, 2 triples, HR2016: .471 with 24 hits, 13 runs, 18 RBIs, 8 doubles, HRCareer Average:.380Career Hits:72Career Runs:42Career RBIs:45Career Doubles:18Stolen Bases:2018: 15 stolen bases in 17 attempts2017: 9 for 112016: 4 for 6 faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more
