RSF_en December 2, 2020 Find out more Dear Sir, On June 2nd it has been two years since Duško Miljuš, Jutarnji list investigative journalist, has been brutally attacked. His arm was broken and he suffered serious head trauma. That attack by three perpetrators with baseball clubs was at the time characterized by the police as attempted murder. But the police has not succeeded yet in finding the responsible persons who ordered or performed the attack. This is extremely frustrating for Miljuš personally, for Croatian journalists in general and for the independant media, especially those interested in crime and corruption in Croatia. As the main governmental goal is the fight against anti-corruption, journalists dealing with anti-corruption must be protected and investigations of attacks on journalists must be a major priority of the police . Some of our colleagues have been under different kind of police protection for longer periods exactly due to the fact that perpetrators have not been found. The lack of efficiency in police investigations is not a good message for journalists and democracy in Croatia. A thorogh investigation and possible arrest of Miljuš attackers and others who have threatened journalists would create an atmosphere of trust so needed in croatia. Dear Mr. Karamarko, as you have announced the successful results regarding Miljuš investigations several times in the last two years, we question whether there is somebody obstructing that investigation We call upon your professional skill and ethics to do everything possible to make the arrest of Miljuš attackers and send them to court.

DES MOINES — The legislature’s top Republican leader says GOP lawmakers raised concerns about state institutions that care for intellectually disabled patients a year ago and were told everything was fine.House Speaker-select Pat Grassley, a Republican from New Hartford, says conducting legislative oversight hearings now, though, would impede federal investigations that are underway at state-run facilities in Glenwood and Woodward.“For us to sit here and just start having meetings before we’ve even reached the bottom of what’s going on with that situation would be a little bit premature,” Grassley says.Grassley indicates that last February legislators were told by the head of the Department of Human Services that “there was not a problem” at Glenwood. Governor Reynolds fired the DHS director in July, but has not disclosed why. House Democratic Leader Todd Prichard of Charles City says the House Oversight Committee should convene soon to examine what he calls shocking allegations of patient abuse at Glenwood.“We can’t be afraid to investigate just because we may not like what we find,” Prichard says.The man recently fired as superintendent of the Glenwood Resource Center is accused of conducting human experiments on some of the intellectually disabled patients. Senate President Charles Schneider, a Republican from West Des Moines, says the allegations now under investigation are disturbing.“It seems like the governor and the new DHS director, Kelly Garcia, are doing a good job of responding right now,” Schneider says. “We’ll see what their report shows and take action from there.”Senate Democratic Leader Janet Petersen of Des Moines says now is the time launch an Oversight Committee investigation of Glenwood and Woodward.“I’m the mom of teenage kids and I can tell you a very simple rule: trust, but verify,” Petersen says. “That’s why we have we have checks and balances in government and they should be used.”Four top leaders in the state legislature discussed the situation at Glenwood and a number of other issues Tuesday at a forum organized by the Associated Press.
21 Aug 2012 England Golf Rules Schools to be held in Hertfordshire Following the success of previous events, England Golf has announced that it will be running another two County Rules Schools this autumn. Both will take place at Hadley Wood Golf Club in Hertfordshire. The emphasis will be on practical tuition and demonstrations that will cover some of the most commonly encountered rulings. The Rules Schools will also give delegates the opportunity to put their knowledge and learning to the test through refereeing role-play sessions and by sitting an exam on the Rules of Golf. England Golf County Rules Schools have been running for two years and have already been to Gloucestershire, Suffolk, Worcestershire, Lancashire, Hampshire, Cheshire and Devon attracting over 250 delegates. Not only have these schools helped to improve the Rules knowledge of all those who attended, many delegates have passed with distinction giving their associated County Unions a potential new source of qualified ‘County Referees’ to officiate at County championships and tournaments. “We are delighted to be taking our County Rules School to Hertfordshire for the first time and in particular to Hadley Wood Golf Club. We are aware that counties surrounding London like Hertfordshire, Middlesex and Essex have a strong knowledge base when it comes to Rules of Golf and all have active Tournament Panels” says Toby Thorne, England Golf Deputy Championship Manager. “Our Rules Schools enable those who are already experienced county referees to gain a qualification that is recognised nationally, whilst also giving opportunity for a wider number of people to improve and further their rules knowledge. A key focus of the County Rules School programme is to provide hands-on experience, guidance and insight into the duties of a referee, which we believe offers the best way of learning and improving performance.” Delegates should have at least a basic understanding of the Rules of Golf before attending. Advice will be given on how to prepare for the exam which is several weeks after the first day of practical tuition. Dates for the Autumn Rules Schools are : Day 1: Mon 15th October Day 2 (inc. Exam): Mon 26th November Venue: Hadley Wood Golf Club, Barnet Closing date for applications : Friday 7th September. Day 1: Mon 22nd October Day 2 (inc. Exam): Mon 3rd December Venue: Hadley Wood Golf Club, Barnet Closing date for applications : Friday 21st September. The fee for attending an England Golf County Rules School is £50. The course is open to delegates from counties throughout England. For further information and how to register for a school visit www.englandgolf.org/rulesschool
Facebook0Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Saint Martin’s UniversitySaint Martin’s University has achieved a remarkable position among the country’s regional universities offering the best educational value to students, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 “Best Colleges” rankings. The University is ranked 14th in the “best value” category in the Western region, a swath of the country that includes Hawaii, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.To determine which schools offer the best value, U.S. News says it uses a calculation that is based on the school’s academic quality, a measurement it determines by calculations based on its most recent survey; the percentage of all undergraduates receiving need-based scholarships or grants in the 2017-18 academic year; and the percentage of a school’s total costs for 2017-18 school year covered by the average need-based scholarship or grant to undergraduates. The best values in education, according to the report, are schools giving the highest-quality education at the lowest cost.“Saint Martin’s University has always focused on academic excellence, access and affordability,” said Saint Martin’s University President Roy Heynderickx, Ph.D. “It is great to be recognized by U.S. News and World Report for our commitment and service to students.”Saint Martin’s was also listed as tied for 37th among the best regional universities in the West. Universities in this category offer a full range of undergraduate programs and some master’s programs. In addition, the University was listed as tied for 20th in the “best colleges for veterans” category among regional universities in the West.The Saint Martin’s engineering program was recognized in the “Best Colleges” as tied for 144th (up from 147th last year) in the nationwide rankings of schools whose highest engineering degree is a bachelor’s or master’s. U.S. News and World Report ranks undergraduate engineering programs that are accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).“The Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering provides our students an excellent engineering and computer science education that incorporates a strong liberal arts core. We are grateful that the trend in our peer rankings reflects a growing awareness nationally of the quality of our programs and graduates,” said Dave Olwell, Ph.D., dean of the Hal and Inge Marcus School of Engineering.U.S. News’ overall ranking system is based on measures deemed to be reliable indicators of academic quality, along with the magazine’s analysis of those factors. Its formula uses information provided on 16 indicators of academic quality, among them social mobility; peer and high-school counselor assessment; graduation and retention rates; faculty resources; student selectivity; the institution’s financial strength; and alumni giving, a category that gauges to some extent the esteem graduates have for their alma mater.Saint Martin’s University is an independent, four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 13 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Saint Martin’s University prepares students for successful lives through its 27 majors and ten graduate programs spanning the liberal arts, business, education, nursing and engineering. Saint Martin’s welcomes more than 1,300 undergraduate students and 250 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and more students to its extended campus located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord.
