After the changes, around 12,000 convicts who are not yet serving their sentences at home could qualify.Private radio RMF had earlier quoted Justice Ministry estimates that nearly 20,000 prisoners could benefit and said that older people sentenced to up to three years in prison could ask for a suspension of their term until the epidemic is over.

Shkodran Mustafi blames Unai Emery’s tactics for Arsenal’s performance against Vitoria

first_imgShkodran Mustafi says Arsenal took their time adjusting to a back three (AP Photo)Shkodran Mustafi admits Unai Emery’s decision to play with a back three hampered Arsenal’s performance in their 1-1 draw with Vitoria on Wednesday.The German defender was responsible for Arsenal’s only shot on target as he put the Gunners in front with a header from Nicolas Pepe’s free-kick in the 80th minute.But Arsenal were unable to hold out for the victory as Bruno Duarte equalised for Vitoria in injury time, while the Portuguese club also came close to snatching a last-gasp winner.Emery opted to play Mustafi alongside Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Rob Holding in a three-man defence.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTBut Mustafi feels the decision meant that Arsenal’s players struggled to find ‘rhythm’ in the opening 45 minutes.

Are Cell Phones Safe? CDC Changes Its Mind

first_imgINDIANAPOLIS – The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) became the first federal agency to acknowledge health risks from cell-phone use and then suddenly backtracked. Sometime before early June, the CDC posted significant new wording in a “Frequently Asked Questions” section on its website.To the question, “Do cell phones cause health problems in children?” it read, “It’s too soon to know for sure,” and went on to say children will have more exposure over a lifetime growing up with cell phones. Last week however that statement was changed to simply, “It’s not known if cell-phone use by children can cause health problems.”Jim Turner, board chair of Citizens for Health and a public interest lawyer, speculates the changes were triggered either by industry lobbyists, government officials, or both.“CDC wasn’t sitting over there and put the thing up the first time, and then said, ‘Oh, wait a minute, let’s take it down.’ Somebody alerted them they wanted it down or there was going to be trouble,” Turner says.The agency made other backtracking language changes regarding possible cancer and other health risks from cell phones.Louis Slesin, editor and publisher of Microwave News, says the softening of the CDC’s language is puzzling because, as he puts it, they’ve got “bigger fish to fry.”“Ebola in Africa and all the things that are going on, it’s really quite remarkable that someone made the effort to change something that was really very, very minor,” says Slesin. “All it was saying was, ‘We think there’s something to this. Don’t discount it.’ That’s all they were really saying.”The CDC website also originally said, “We recommended caution in cell phone usage,” but has removed the word “we.” Turner says even the softened statement is an eye-opener.“I will tell you right now for the CDC to say that ‘some organizations recommend caution in cell phone use’ is, in and of itself, a very, very significant statement,” Turner says.Slesin says he can’t understand, and the CDC won’t tell him, why it has backed away from acknowledging several international studies that suggest health risks from cell phones.“This is just telling people, ‘We see the data. There are some issues here that need to be worked out. Be cautious until it is,’” Slesin says. “The fact they backed away from that is really quite extraordinary.”The agency also says in the FAQs “more research is needed.” Turner says that statement alone should spur the nation’s nearly 328 million cell phone users to learn more about the potential hazards and what they might do to lessen them.The CDC has not returned a request for comment.Mary Kuhlmanlast_img read more

Students react to launch of It’s On Us campaign

first_imgThe White House announced the launch of the It’s On Us public awareness campaign Friday morning. The campaign is a collaborative effort intended to help prevent sexual assault on college campuses.In Friday’s speech, President Barack Obama emphasized that survivors of sexual assault are not alone.“This is not your fight alone,” Obama said. “This is on all of us, every one of us, to fight campus sexual assault.”It’s On Us is a partnership with nearly 200 colleges, sports organizations like the NCAA and private companies with ties to colleges and universities.Student body representatives at USC echoed Obama’s conviction.“It’s not a men’s issue, it’s not a women’s issue, it’s not a Greek issue, it’s a campus-wide human rights issue,” Undergraduate Student Government Vice President Rini Sampath said.At USC, It’s On Us will take place in conjunction with the Trojans Respect Consent campaign. Trojans Respect Consent is a Greek-centered campaign USG plans to launch in the coming weeks. According to Sampath, Greek students can display the Trojans Respect Consent emblem online, customized to the organization’s name and colors, in order to promote awareness of the issue. Greek students can display the emblem if more than 80 percent of members attend sexual assault education seminars.Though Trojans Respect Consent currently has a Greek focus, representatives hope to expand it to other student organizations.“The final goal is to have all organizations attend seminars on sexual assault,” Sampath said.According to the White House blog, an estimated one in five American college women are assaulted. Of those assaults, only 12 percent are reported and only a fraction of reports lead to punishment.Some universities have established their own initiatives to fight sexual assault. In particular, The Survivor Outreach and Support Campus Act, implemented by the University of California system, has received national attention and praise.“There’s no doubt that colleges and universities have to step up their game. They have to take legal responsibility, and it’s a moral obligation to respect their students and hold perpetrators accountable,” Vice President Joe Biden said.One of the goals of It’s On Us is getting men, particularly male students, involved in the issue.Patrick Quah, a graduate student studying interactive media, said that he hopes It’s On Us will combat misconceptions about men and sexual assault.“I think it’s presumptuous to say we have to ‘protect’ the opposite sex. I don’t think that’s the case at all –— it’s  about policing our own gender and holding ourselves accountable,” Quah said.Obama stressed that society must change for the reforms to be effective.“From sports leagues to pop culture to politics, our society still does not sufficiently value women,” he said.Quah worried about the transparency of the reporting process.“I think it’s a great thing to be taken to a federal level, although I think the main challenges will be that a lot of this is unseen and underreported, so transparency could still be an issue,” Quah said.last_img read more

No. 6 Syracuse can’t complete comeback in 3-2 overtime loss against No. 7 North Carolina

first_imgDown a goal, Syracuse pushed its offense, hunting for an equalizer. The Orange earned a penalty corner as time expired. If North Carolina cleared the ball, the game would end.But the first two corners ended in penalties, re-upping the Orange’s chances for a game-tying goal. On the third attempt, junior back Roos Weers said, SU changed its plan of attack and finally broke through. Syracuse forced overtime on a game-tying goal.Immediately in seven-on-seven overtime, UNC pressed Syracuse. A minute and 26 seconds into overtime, the Tar Heels’ Eva van’t Hoog found the back of the cage, silencing the crowd and giving No. 7 North Carolina (8-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast) a 3-2 win over No. 6 Syracuse (8-2, 1-2) on Saturday at J.S Coyne Stadium. Despite rebounding from its worst offensive half of the season to tie, SU couldn’t complete the comeback.“We didn’t really come out with that energy or that hype,” senior midfielder Erin Gillingham said.SU head coach Ange Bradley was made unavailable to comment on the team’s loss.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse tallied only one shot in the first half for the first time since its loss to Connecticut in the 2016 NCAA tournament. The Tar Heels only had four of its own but with no time left in the first half, UNC lined up for a penalty corner. The insertion went to Ashley Hoffman, UNC’s shot leader. Assuming Hoffman would take the shot, SU’s defense flooded to her. Sensing pressure, Hoffman flung the ball back to the inserter, Gab Major, for an easy tap-in.SU came out aggressive in the second half, but again, it was UNC being “clinical,” Weers said. Fifteen minutes into the second frame, van’t Hoog netted her first score of the game from the left side of the arc.SU began to change its attack in response to the two-goal deficit, as Bradley had Lies Lagerweij push up the sideline and attack. Several times, Lagerweij played all the way to arc but couldn’t finish her drives.Lagerweij was made unavailable to comment on the team’s loss.With just over 15 minutes left, Weers ripped a long hit to Elaine Carey behind the UNC defense. Despite relentless pursuit from Hoffman, Carey spun back and slid the ball softly behind goalkeeper Marissa Hendry.The Orange then failed to convert on six penalty corners and only had a handful of shots outside of set pieces. Even when the ball did make it into the arc, Hendry blocked away each Syracuse chance.With 12.9 seconds on the clock, after a video review, SU was awarded a penalty corner. The clock was run to zero before the attempt, but the game would not end until the ball was cleared. After two failed attempts, Syracuse broke through.Rather than Carey pushing the ball to the top of the arc, she hit it harder, giving Lagerweij a new angle to hit from. The senior shuffled to her left a bit and cocked back, unleashing a blast into the back of the net.“We played a different corner than before,” Weers said. “We didn’t go straight from the top.”But before Syracuse couldn’t follow up its back-to-back goals, it was van’t Hoog that put an end to an Orange comeback.
