His newspaper said he was arrested on 29 September in connection with the murder of Mohamed Taha, the editor of the privately-owned daily Al-Wifaq, at the beginning of the month.Another person detained in connection with the murder reportedly told investigators that Abdallah had called him just hours before Taha was killed and said the murder was going to take place. Abdallah, who said he was not mistreated while in detention, denied the allegation.———————————-03.10.2006 – Security forces have held Al-Rai Al-Aam journalist for four daysReporters Without Borders called on the Sudanese authorities to justify the secret detention of Abu Obeida Abdallah, a journalist on the independent daily Al-Rai al-Aam, arrested by security forces in Khartoum on 29 September 2006, without any official explanation. “The Sudanese authorities must provide an explanation about the holding of Abu Obeida Abdallah” said Reporters Without Borders. “If he is being held because of his work the journalist should be released immediately and without any action taken against him”. “If he is being held for other reasons, we demand that they be made public and that his right to impartial proceedings be respected,” it added.The information ministry admitted on 2 October that police were holding the journalist, a specialist on the Darfur question, for “investigation” and said he would shortly be freed but without elaborating. Obeida Abdallah has had no contact with colleagues or family since 29 September or any access to a lawyer. Under Sudanese law he should have been charged or released within 48 hours.The journalist covered Darfur peace talks between the government and several rebel groups at the Abuja summit in May 2006. Some Sudanese journalists told Reporters Without Borders they believe he may be under questioning about these sensitive issues, perhaps to force him to reveal his sources.

If women do not reach for the lipstick before work they are likely to beviewed as unprofessional by company directors, claims research releasedyesterday. Directors in the North are the least politically correct, with 68 per centof them believing that women who wear make-up look more professional than thosewho do not. Just under half of the directors in the South favour female staff wearingmake up. The Fifth Annual Aziz Management Communications Index also shows that 17 percent of directors claim that women who do not wear make-up look like they”cannot be bothered to make an effort”, and 11 per cent are morelikely to employ women who have taken time over their mascara and lipgloss. Larger companies are more prejudiced against non-make-up wearing women thansmaller ones, according to the survey of 100 company directors. Nearly two-thirds of directors in firms with a turnover of more than £30mprefer women in make-up. Khalid Aziz, chairman of communications consultancy Aziz Corporation, said,”Our survey might not be politically correct, but it demonstrates theimportance of appearance. While wearing make-up does not mean you are better atyour job than someone who does not, looking well-groomed always conveysprofessionalism.” last_img read more

first_img February Benefits Will Now Be Distributed On January 16, 2018The Indiana Family and Social Services Administration has been informed by the USDA the state must issue Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits for the month of February on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, rather than the previously-reported date of Saturday, January 19.In Indiana, SNAP benefits are usually issued to recipients according to an alphabetical schedule over a 19 day period throughout the month. This one-time early benefit distribution was identified by USDA officials as a mechanism provide SNAP benefits during the partial federal government shutdown.No SNAP benefits will be issued in the month of February, so recipients are strongly encouraged to budget their SNAP benefits to ensure the amount received provides for their food needs through the entire month of February. January benefits are being distributed according to the normal schedule.

CHANNELING DONALD TRUMP

first_imgCHANNELING DONALD TRUMPMaking Sense by Michael ReaganMaybe I’m channeling Donald Trump. Or maybe he’s been reading my columns – or my mind.All I know for sure is that when he gave his great speech to Congress Tuesday night he did exactly what I suggested he should do that morning in my column in The Hill – stop being Donald Trump.Quoting my father, I wrote that there comes a time when the president-elect has to become the president – and then start acting like one who represents the whole country, even his enemies.I said the president should be a conservative, make conservative appointments and run a conservative government.But I also suggested that he immediately stop catering only to his base and tell us in his speech where he wants to take the country and how he plans to take us there.President Trump did all that and much more in his widely applauded speech Tuesday night, which was a great turning point for his administration to move forward on his agenda.  By spelling out his core goals, and asking the House and Senate to create the legislation to put them into place, Trump proved to Congress he wants to lead.On Tuesday night he set the cornerstone for his administration’s agenda.  Like Trump Tower, he now has to begin rebuilding and rehabilitating America from the infrastructure up.  Many of our bridges and roads are in shambles. We take off and land at airports that would shame a Third World country.In Studio City, Ca., not far from my house, a 90-year-old pipe burst and caused a sinkhole that swallowed cars but thankfully no people.President Trump is absolutely right to want to throw a trillion public and private dollars at the crumbling infrastructure of the country – the more private the funding, the better.He is also absolutely right to want to rebuild and build-up our military after eight years of neglect by the Obama administration.As my father used to say, we fought four wars during his lifetime – none of which were fought because America was too strong.President Trump understands that. So does Secretary of Defense James Mattis.  So does his disgruntled fellow Republican, Senator John McCain, who’ll someday applaud the president if he stays on course to rejuvenate the Army, Air Force and Navy.The president’s signature campaign issue, enforcing and reforming our awful immigration policy, will face a huge political fight and a lot of compromising.He’ll need to find the area where we can all come together. Nobody is going to get 100 percent of what they want, so everyone – including the president’s base — has to be willing to give a little.President Trump’s other aims – lowering taxes on people and corporations, cutting regulations on businesses and repealing and replacing ObamaCare – are goals conservatives have been dreaming about for years.He has a real chance of accomplishing many of his goals and the goals of conservatives in the next 200 days, but he can’t do it alone.He’s going to need the advice and help of thousands of people.So if I could give one more bit of advice to President Trump, which comes from a placard that was on my father’s desk, it is, “There’s no telling what a man can accomplish or where he could go if he doesn’t worry about who gets the credit.”My father knew it’s never about taking credit, Mr. Trump, it’s all about getting things done.—FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Scottish engineering firm buys Double D

first_imgEquipment supplier Double D Food Engineering has been acquired by the Bonspiel Group, a Scotland-based specialist engineering group.”The old owners did a great job of establishing Double D in the UK bakery market,” new MD Bob Petrie, formerly of NCR, told British Baker. “But we’re really looking to expand the business. It’s going to become much larger, more international and have a greater portfolio range.”Seventy people work at the 40,000sq ft factory. Their jobs are safe, he said. “In fact, our market development and expansion plans mean more jobs will be created in the future.”Current founding directors David Denholm, David Taylor and Douglas Jackson will gradually wind down their involvement in the business over the next six to nine months.There are no plans to consolidate the two businesses, said Petrie. Double D operates from a factory in Edinburgh and Bonspiel from a 10,000sq ft production facility near Dundee. Bonspiel specialises in engineering, making precision components.The Double D equipment range to date includes travelling ovens and retarder provers. Its export sales account for over 25% of its total annual sales.last_img read more
