AAA encourages parents to resist moving to next stage of car…

first_img New guidelines for children in rear-facing seatsFrom AAAAs part of Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 23-29, AAA and other safety organizations are encouraging parents to take the time to ensure their children are in the correct seat for their age and size when riding in the car.AAA recommends following the car seat and child restraint guidelines from the American Academy of Pediatrics, which in August updated its recommendations to encourage children to stay in rear-facing seats until they reach the upper weight or height limit of the seat. Previous recommendations said children could graduate to a forward-facing seat after their second birthday.“It’s understandable that parents are often eager to move their child to the next type of seat, whether that’s a forward-facing car seat or a booster seat,” said Amy Stracke, Managing Director of Traffic Safety Advocacy for AAA – The Auto Club Group and Executive Director of the Auto Club Group Traffic Safety Foundation. “However, with each step, you lose some of the protection you had with the previous seat. Keeping children in their seat until they reach the maximum limits can be lifesaving if they’re in a crash.”Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death among children in the U.S., with an average of two children under 13 killed per day in 2016, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Compared to forward-facing car seats, rear-facing car seats limit movement of the head, neck, and spine. For young children with tender and developing neck muscles, this additional support results in fewer injuries during a crash.In addition to using the correct seat, AAA encourages parents to check for some of the most common car seat mistakes including:Not installing the car seat tightly enoughLoose harness strapsTurning your child forward facing too soonMoving your child out of a booster seat too soonAllowing a child under the age of 13 to ride in the front seat“We want parents and caregivers to have the tools and information they need to keep their children safe,” said Matt Nasworthy, Florida Public Affairs Director, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “Child Passenger Safety Week is a great opportunity for people to review the latest guidelines while checking to make sure their child is in the right seat for them.”Child Passenger Safety Week ends with National Seat Check Saturday on Sept. 29, a day that focuses on car seat safety and encourages parents to have their child’s car seat inspected by a certified car seat technician.

Ugo Monye lucky to get up after heavy fall against London Irish

first_imgThursday May 14, 2009 Ugo Monye lucky to get up after heavy fall against London Irish On Saturday as London Irish put pay to Harleqins ambitions of reaching the Guinness Premiership Final, Quins winger Ugo Monye showed the type of commitment and determination that has earned him his rightful place in the British & Irish Lions squad to tour South Africa. “People asked me if I dreamt of getting selected for the Lions,” said Monye. “I’m not sure that dreams can take you that far. It’s nuts, it’s crazy. I’d got a holiday sorted to America but that can get cancelled. “Without doubt, it’s been my most fulfilling season. The best thing now would be to go away with some success behind me. I don’t want to be wrapped in cotton wool. You want to keep your form sharp, and be playing in big games. It’s good for your confidence.” Monye proved his worth for England this season in the two Six Nations matches that he took part in, with his tackle on Thom Evans being a stand out example of the mans work rate. “If there’s one thing that’s improved this season it’s my defence,” said Monye. “A lot of wings have got the ability to run fast, beat players and all that. I’m not sure every wing has got a solid defence. So, I’ve worked hard on that aspect. It’s about positioning and awareness.” Monye is lucky to have walked away from this horrific looking fall unscathed on the weekend after he went up for a high ball and was upended by his opposite number Adam Thompstone. He landed with his full weight on the back of his neck, causing alarm for spectators, players and medical staff. Incredibly, Monye stood up after a few minutes and played on, showing no signs of injury whatsoever. Look out for the rapid winger on the hard and fast surfaces of South Africa later this month with the British & Irish Lions. He’s sure to have a huge impact.

Celebs speak out on Ferguson

first_imgSt. Louis Rams wide receivers in solidarity with Ferguson, Nov. 30.While celebrities these days are not particularly known for their political courage or progressive stances, many have spoken out, particularly African-American artists, entertainers, musicians, actors, athletes and others, against the outrageous non-indictment of killer cop Darren Wilson in the shooting death of teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo.Perhaps the most widely televised act of solidarity in the United States occurred on Nov. 30 as the St. Louis Rams took to the field for their National Football League game against the Oakland Raiders. Wide receivers Tavon Austin, Stedman Bailey, Kenny Britt and Chris Givens, along with tight end Jared Cook, exited the players’ tunnel with their hands in the air in the popular “Hands up, don’t shoot” posture that has become a powerful symbol in the movement for justice for Brown.“We wanted to come out and show our respect to the protesters that have been doing a heck of a job,” said Cook, who along with the four receivers took part in an outside protest prior to the game. Dozens of protesters later blocked a street and then marched, chanting “Black lives matter!” and taking several arrests. (chicagotribune.com, Dec. 1)St. Louis police and cops around the U.S. denounced the five heroic players and arrogantly demanded the NFL punish them. However, NFL spokesperson Brian McCarthy said none of the five players would be fined or suspended. “We respect and understand the concerns of all individuals who have expressed views on this tragic situation,” said McCarthy. (reuters.com, Dec. 1)Others speak outNFL running back Reggie Bush of the Detroit Lions also came under fire for expressing his views. Zionist supporters of the apartheid state of Israel and other racists took their wrath out on Bush for daring to show the similarities between Ferguson and Palestine.Bush posted a photo on Instagram of Palestinian photojournalist Hamdi Abu Rahma holding a sign reading, “The Palestinian people know what mean to be shot while unarmed because of your ethnicity #Ferguson #Justice.” Bush wrote, “No matter who you are, what color skin you have, where you live, we are all in this together! This isn’t a Ferguson problem it’s a Global Problem! We need change NOW! What happened to humanity? #JusticeForMikeBrown.”Despite racist venom spewed his way, Bush refused to back down. The next day, he again posted another Abu Rahma photo of a Palestinian girl with a sign, “Ferguson with love from Palestine.” (mondoweiss.net, Nov. 27)Entertainers also spoke out. Comedian and actor Chris Rock stated via Twitter on the night of Nov. 24: “Doesn’t take 100 days to decide if murder is a crime, it takes 100 days to figure out how to tell people it isn’t… #FergusonDecision.” As of Dec. 1, more than 51,635 retweets of Rock’s statement had occurred.Actor and TV star Jesse Williams tweeted right after the announcement: “There are no variables to ‘unarmed’ at a distance. It doesn’t matter where my hands are if there’s nothing in them & you KNOW I’m unarmed.”White entertainers also expressed their dismay to their fans and the world. Katy Perry tweeted: “Feeling stuck all the way over here in Sydney seeing the news just now… Sending my prayers to Ferguson & praying for an equal America.”Country music star Garth Brooks backed out of his “Thanksgiving Day” appearance on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” stating on Facebook that he arrived in New York on the evening of the grand jury announcement “to the news of the civil unrest that was going on in our nation. To spend the day promoting our stuff like nothing was wrong seemed distasteful to me.” (Associated Press, Nov. 26)Many well-known celebrities joined the call for the Nov. 28 shopping boycott under the Twitter hashtags #NotOneDime and #BlackoutBlackFriday, including hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, actors Jesse Williams and Kat Graham, and television journalist Soledad O’Brien.

Release of cyberdissident Cai Lujun at the end of his sentence

At his trial, which was held behind closed doors, he was found guilty of “incitement to subversion” and sentenced to three years in prison on 30 October 2003. —————————————————-13.11.2003Heavy jail sentences for pro-democracy cyber-dissidentsReporters Without Borders expressed outrage today at “totally unjustified” long prison sentences passed on five cyber-dissidents accused of subversion by calling for liberal and democratic reforms in China.Ten-year sentences on journalist Xu Wei and geologist Jin Haike were confirmed on appeal on 10 November by the Beijing Intermediate Court, which also upheld eight-year terms for computer expert Yang Zili and writer Zang Honghai. A court in Shijiazhuang sentenced businessman Cai Lijun to three years on 30 October for the same reason.”The Chinese authorities continue to repress cyber-dissidence with an iron hand,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard. “All these five were simply voicing their opinions. Their sentences are totally unjustified.” He called on public security minister Zhou Yongkang to release Yang Zili, Xu Wei, Jin Haike and Zang Honghai at once and urged leniency towards Cai Lujun.Cai, 35, was arrested on 21 February this year after posting four articles online criticising the government and calling for democratic reforms. The articles – entitled “Towards Chinese democracy,” “These wretched second-class citizens,” “The present political monopoly and its weaknesses” and “Guidelines for rebuilding and leading the country” – were posted on a foreign-based website. Cai’s family plans to appeal against his sentence, according to the Hong Kong-based Information Centre of Human Rights and Democracy. Yang, founder of the website lib.126.com (better known as “Yang Chi’s Garden of Ideas”), had called in online articles for political democratisation, criticised repression of the Falungong spiritual movement and deplored the problems faced by the peasantry. The other three whose appeals were heard were also convicted of posting pro-democracy material on the website, as well as being members of a discussion group called The New Youth Society. The four have been in prison since March 2001 and were originally sentenced on 29 May.Reporters Without Borders protested on 6 November against the severity of an eight-year sentence passed on He Depu, a member of the China Democracy Party and author of many online articles, by the Beijing no. 1 court.The public security minister called in mid-October for legal procedure deadlines to be respected and for courts to deal with all long-delayed cases, which may explain the much increased number of cyber-dissidents being tried. The minister spoke at the 16th congress of the ruling Chinese Communist Party and in the context of constitutional reforms aimed at improving civil liberties.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org News RSF_en March 12, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

These idiotic and revolting ploys should stop.”A resident of the Isle of Youth (located off the western province of Pinar del Río), Gutiérrez had just bought a ticket to Havana when three State Security agents arrested her. “They hit me in the chest and back, pinned me to the ground and then a National Revolutionary Police patrol car pulled up and they took me to the police station,” she told Reporters Without Borders.She was interrogated and made to pay two fines, of 30 and 20 pesos. “The police accused me of insubordination, disturbing the peace and resisting the authorities. They said I was harming the revolution and could get a prison sentence of one to two years.” She said she thought her arrest was prompted by her participation in a meeting of independent journalists on 4 July.She was sent to a hospital to be examined but the doctors there declined to give her a medical certificate. “The doctors said the marks left by the blows were not visible enough,” she told Reporters Without Borders.She was sent back to the police station after the medical examination. “I spent seven hours in a filthy cell, with no water and food. The policemen threatened me again. They ordered me to stop my activities, which I won’t do.” She was finally released at 1 a.m. on 15 July.Gutiérrez is the wife of Rolando Jiménez Posada, a political prisoner who has been held since 25 April 2003.
