He was also banned from writing on social networks.“Reporters Without Borders condemns in the strongest terms the conviction of Fawzan Al-Harbi and the continual use of the law on cyber crime to muzzle human rights activists,” said Virginie Dangles, deputy head of research and advocacy at Reporters Without Borders.“After the orchestrated conviction Waleed Abu Al Khair, founder of the Monitor of Human Rights, the cases against Fawzan Al-Harbi and his colleagues shows the Saudi monarchy’s determination to flout basic freedoms.”Al-Harbi was charged among other things with “preparing, storing and disseminating information harmful to public order” and was convicted under article 3 of the 2007 law against cyber crime. He was also accused of taking part in the creation of an unlicensed NGO with the aim of dividing the people, of signing petitions calling for respect for human rights and of criticizing Saudi authorities, including equating Saudi Arabia with a police state.His arrest was ordered during a hearing at his trial last December and was released some four weeks later. He appealed against his conviction on 25 June. Saudi media silent on RSF complaint against MBS March 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Limerick not getting its share of tourism revenue

first_imgTechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type! Cmhlr Séighin Ó CeallaighSINN Féin councillor Séighin Ó Ceallaigh believes that Limerick is seriously lacking in national support and promotion.This he says is “evident from the latest figures from Fáilte Ireland for 2017 which has Limerick ranked as the sixth most popular destination for overseas tourists and a mere fourteenth for domestic tourists”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Limerick City and County Council has been investing in tourism promotion, and festivals and events, but we need to be met halfway. With the exception of Dublin, all of the counties ahead of us in the rankings are along the Wild Atlantic Way, which speaks volumes,” Ó Ceallaigh claimed.“Limerick only had half the number of overseas tourists that Kerry had, and our nearest neighbours Clare had over 100,000 more foreign visitors last year. It is clear that national support is helping these counties, but Limerick has been ignored for big tourism schemes like the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands.“The story gets even worse when we look at domestic tourism. Limerick had only 280,000 domestic visitors last year, compared to Cork’s 1.1million, and we are even lagging behind counties like Wicklow and Kilkenny.”The Council’s work, the City East representative maintains, has increased tourist numbers over the past few years, but when competing against counties who have the major tourism routes, it is a “losing battle”.“I will continue to put pressure on Fáilte Ireland, and the Minister for Tourism to secure a place for Limerick on both the Wild Atlantic Way and Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands, so that Limerick sees it’s fair share from Irish tourism,” he concluded.Read more politics news here.

MLAX : Altering shot selection key for SU against Lowman; McArdle poses challenge for Orange defense

first_imgVILLANOVA, Pa. – John Desko voiced to his players they needed to change the angle on their shots or else they weren’t going to be St. John’s goaltender Jeff Lowman.In the first half of Syracuse’s 9-8 victory over the Red Storm on March 10, the Orange sent countless high shots toward the net, providing St. John’s goaltender Jeff Lowman with the upper hand early in the game.When SU finally responded to Desko’s criticism, the ball finally started to fall into the back of the net. The lesson on shot selection is one the Orange attack has carried throughout the rest of the season.‘Definitely just changing the planes on the shots and overall just shooting smart,’ SU attack Tim Desko said, ‘don’t shoot right into his stick and I think we’ll be fine.’The Orange attack will look to beat the goalie that gave them fits early in the regular season when the third-seeded Orange takes on No. 4 seed St. John’s in the Big East tournament final at Villanova Stadium on Saturday. With a lesson from the regular season in hand, Syracuse will hope to conquer Lowman again in the postseason. The junior goaltender is coming off a stellar 15-save performance in the Red Storm’s 8-7 upset victory over Notre Dame in the semifinals.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse is coming off one of its most inspiring offensive performances of the season against Villanova on Thursday. Leading 9-6 late in the third quarter, the Orange used a patient approach to dispose of the Wildcats with six unanswered goals to close out the game.‘We don’t want another let down this season,’ Tim Desko said. ‘We did well dodging, moving the ball good yesterday. We kept moving the ball, getting great dodges and it didn’t matter who scored, it was pretty spread out which is nice.’Tim Desko said the Orange has carried a quiet confidence since nearly upending the Fighting Irish with six second-half goals last weekend. Against Villanova, Syracuse was patient on offense, cycling the ball around the perimeter, unafraid of stall warnings as long as it got a good look at the net.And the persistence in the attacking zone wore down the Wildcats defense.When SU takes on Lowman for the second time this season, John Desko said it won’t be as much about shooting low as it will be mixing up the shot selection. And if SU is able to do that from start to finish he believes the Orange’s offensive success will continue.‘A lot of goalies have had their best game against us, so we’ll see,’ John Desko said. ‘I think he’s comfortable in the goal and as opposed to saying we have to shoot in a certain high or low, I think we need to look at the goal and take good shots.’Syracuse defense preparing to face conference’s leading scorerBrian Megill and the Syracuse defense frustrated Big East attack player of the year, Kevin Cunningham, into three turnovers and held him to two points on Thursday.The Orange blanketed Cunningham off the ball and swarmed him on drives to the cage. With Villanova’s top threat neutralized, the Wildcats offense couldn’t keep pace with Syracuse in a blowout loss.On Saturday, Megill will match up with St. John’s attack Kieran McArdle, who led the Big East with 49 points during the regular season, and the close defender said SU simply has to duplicate its play to contain the Red Storm offense.‘We got to keep playing the way we played yesterday,’ Megill said. ‘Energetic, we had great communication. Our slides were there, our switches were there and that’s how we just have to keep playing.’Syracuse will need its defense to stifle St. John’s offense when the teams square off with the Big East championship and a trip to the NCAA tournament on the line. The Orange is preparing to shut down the Red Storm   using the same formula for success against Villanova.Like Villanova, SJU’s success on offense starts with one player. McArdle is the catalyst for the Red Storm, pacing the team in goals and assists. He led St. John’s to its upset victory over top-seeded Notre Dame on Thursday with seven points coming on three goals and four assists.Against the Notre Dame defense, ranked No. 1 in the nation allowing just 5.75 goals per game, McArdle’s breakout performance in his team’s 8-7 win was even more impressive.Megill said McArdle is athletic and smart, with the ability to make plays all over the field, zipping passes from midfield to his teammates for scoring chances. While the junior will be responsible for covering McArdle, he said the entire defense has to be aware of him on the field at all times.‘I’m going to go out there and play as a team and not worry so much about my individual matchup and hopefully hold them to zero, that’s the plan,’ Megill [email protected] Published on May 4, 2012 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more
