Human rights activists denied the claim. A total of 15 people took part in the tribute.———————————————————Russian President Dmitri Medvedev met on 29 January with Novaya Gazeta editor Dmitri Muratov and one of the newspaper’s main shareholders, former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev, to offer them his condolences for the 19 January murder of one of its reporters, Anastasia Baburova. Baburova and human rights lawyer Stanlislav Markelov were gunned down together in central Moscow immediately after a news conference given by Markelov, in a double murder that has stunned human rights activists and journalists in Russia and abroad. The lack of any reaction from the Russian authorities was widely commented.President Medvedev said his silence was motivated by a desire not to influence the investigation.Markelov, who was aged 34, was buried on 23 January in Moscow. Baburova, 25, was buried three days later in Sebastopol. She was the fourth Novaya Gazeta journalist to meet a violent death in connection with her work. to go furthercenter_img News BelarusEurope – Central Asia News Reporters Without Borders attends human rights lawyer’s Reporters Without Borders attended the funeral in Moscow today of human rights lawyer Stanislav Markelov, who was gunned down in the city centre four days ago. Elsa Vidal, the head of the Europe/Ex-USSR desk voiced her condolences and support to the Markelov family on the press freedom organisation’s behalf.Hundreds of people, including diplomats and human rights activists, accompanied Markelov’s brother and window during a ceremony marked by expressions of grief and emotion. No government representative attended the funeral.“The silence of the Russian authorities after this courageous and exemplary lawyer’s murder casts a disturbing shadow over the future of the rule of law in Russia,” Reporters Without Borders said.Alexander Cherkasov of the human rights NGO Memorial said: “The absence of the Russian authorities and the lack of official reactions is an outrage.” Lev Ponomarev of Human Rights Movement said: “Foreign officials have issued statements but not our elected officials. There is always a double standard in this kind of case. When there are reactions, they are minimal and very often negative.”As a human rights lawyer, Markelov specialised in Chechnya and press cases. He had acted for Anna Politkovskaya, a journalist murdered in Moscow in 2006, and Mikhael Beketov, a journalist who is still hospitalised as a result of a violent attack last November. He was murdered just after giving a news conference in the city centre on 19 January.A funeral service was also held today for Anastasia Baburova, the Novaya Gazeta journalist who was fatally shot when she tried to prevent Markelov’s murderer from getting away.

  • Aqueous Announces New Full-Length Concept Album, ‘Color Wheel’

    first_imgToday, Buffalo-based groove rock quartet Aqueous has announced that their newest studio album, Color Wheel, is on its way. The new album, the band’s first full-length studio effort since 2014’s Cycles, is set for an October 12th release. Aqueous’ Color Wheel will be released via digital platforms as well as on vinyl.As guitarist/keyboardist Dave Loss explains in a press release,Color Wheel feels like a step forward for the band in every way. We tapped into a distinctly more emotional and purposeful space when writing it, and there’s a raw honesty throughout the album’s lyrics and themes that I think a lot of people can relate to. Though some of those themes are a little heavier, there’s a constant thread of hopeful optimism that we hope people will really connect with. Musically, the band has evolved and Color Wheel finds us exploring some new and very exciting musical lanes.Of the album’s 10 tracks, the majority have yet to be heard in the live setting. Even the ones that have been played live have received new studio treatments. One such tune, “Weight of the Word”, features the Turkuaz Horns on its Color Wheel recording.Pegging this record as a concept album, Aqueous will be releasing the 10 tracks in a unique way, presenting three waves of batched releases with the first wave due out as soon as next week. Explains guitarist Mike Gantzer,There’s a certain continuity to this entire album, and it unfolds in a way that makes the track order important for the experience – there’s an underlying narrative happening throughout the lyrics and themes, and the overarching theme of the story is a strong sense of optimism through the struggle of the realities of life. For this reason, we wanted to release the album in waves, ultimately, to give people a chance to settle into each section of the album and digest it thoroughly before diving into the next.You can pre-order for Color Wheel on vinyl now via the band’s Bandcamp page here.

  • Rosicky brace boosts top-four bid

    first_img Press Association Victory enabled Arsene Wenger’s side to climb above Chelsea into fourth spot and they are now only a point behind Spurs with their two main rivals both in action on Sunday. Arsenal needed a goal-line clearance from Rosicky to prevent Albion taking the lead after 12 minutes. Chris Brunt’s corner picked out Claudio Yacob’s run to the near post and his glancing header beat Lukasz Fabianski only for Rosicky to head away. After 20 minutes Arsenal broke the deadlock through Rosicky’s first Premier League goal of the campaign. Mikel Arteta’s long pass was seized upon by Gervinho who turned past Gareth McAuley before crossing for Rosicky who headed home at close range. Aaron Ramsey should have doubled Arsenal’s lead two minutes before half-time but he poked the ball wide of the far post after good play by Giroud and Santi Cazorla. After 51 minutes Rosicky doubled Arsenal’s lead with his second goal of the game. Ramsey’s pass was volleyed by Rosicky with plenty of power and Foster was unable to hold the shot. Rosicky was the first to react to the rebound and made no mistake from eight yards out. Baggies boss Steve Clarke responded by bringing on strikers Lukaku and Markus Rosenberg in place of Graham Dorrans and Jerome Thomas respectively. Albion were given a lifeline after 71 minutes when last defender Mertesacker was sent off for bringing down Long in the box and the resulting spot-kick was converted by Morrison. The closest Albion came to levelling was when McAuley headed just wide from a Brunt corner. Lukaku curled a shot just wide and Long fired over the bar but Arsenal held on. Tomas Rosicky’s double earned 10-man Arsenal a 2-1 win at West Brom and increased the pressure on Chelsea and Tottenham in the battle for a Champions League spot.center_img Rosicky broke the deadlock at the Hawthorns with his first league goal of the campaign and then added a second early in the second period. West Brom midfielder James Morrison reduced the arrears from the penalty spot after Per Mertesacker was red carded for bringing down Shane Long but the Gunners held on to claim the three points. last_img read more

  • New CMRC champions to be crowned this year-end

    first_imgNEW Caribbean Motor Racing Championships Country champions will be crowned at the end of this racing season, with Trinidad in prime position to dethrone defending champions Guyana.Following the latest release of points after the third round in Barbados, the Trinidadians have amassed 1 151 points Barbados second with 504, Jamaica third on 465 and Guyana fourth on 358.Realistically, with a maximum of 630 pints on offer come November in Guyana, there are no contenders who can challenge the Twin Island Republic for that elusive country championship, which they lost by a mere eight points last year.All that remains now is the official crowning ceremony and the jubilation that will follow.The same can be said for the Group Four all-wheel drive category with Doug Gore set to shatter the two-year stranglehold that Guyanese Kristian Jeffrey has had on the series.Gore sits among the untouchables this year with 136 points from two rounds, his nearest competitor being countryman Kyle Gregg with 43 points and with 75 points up for grabs in Guyana, for Gore it is just about showing up to collect his trophy.On the two-wheel drive end of things, the battle remains realistically between current leader Trinidadian Franklyn Boodram who has 144 points from three legs, Barbadian Mark Maloney with 118 from two legs and Jamaican Peter Rae with 108 also from two legs.According to the CMRA rules, however, ‘In the event that there are 4 rounds to the championships in one calendar year, drivers will score points from their 9 best finishes’.With 75 points on offer in round four, the title could go anywhere with just over half of those separating the top three.In the Group Three class, no competition exists for defending champion Paul Vieira who has easily taken the title with 200 points; his nearest competitor being Guyana’s Nazim Gafoor with 73 points.On the Group Two front, the possibilities are even more exciting with Trinidad’s Luke Bhola leading the way into round four with 123 points while his countryman and defending champion Marc Gill is within striking distance on 111 points.Barbadian Mark Maloney is down in third on 102 points and well within striking distance of the title. Mathematically, Trinidad’s Marc Williams and Guyanese Shan Seejatan have shots as well, but their position also depends on those above them scoring no points.On the motorcycle front, Guyana lead with 437 while Trinidad (161), Jamaica (156) and Barbados (133) fall in that order.Individually, Guyanese Matthew Vieira leads with 166 points ahead of his cousins Stephen (166) and Elliot (93) with those three the only possible winners that can emerge.Nonetheless, South Dakota in Guyana holds many memories for a lot of those Caribbean drivers/riders, most of whom have indicated their interest to come here for the final round on November 12-13.last_img read more

  • Cricket News PCB trying to convince Cricket Australia for two ODIs in Pakistan in March 2019

    first_imgNew Delhi: Pakistan is slated to host Australia for five ODIs in March-April 2019 as build-up to the World Cup which will be played in may in England. However, if sources are to be believed, the Pakistan Cricket Board is trying to convince Cricket Australia to play two out of their five ODIs in Pakistan. The Australian cricket team has not played in Pakistan since 1998 and since the attacks on the Sri Lankan team in 2009, foreign teams have had second thoughts about touring the country. However, in the last couple of years, teams like Zimbabwe, West Indies, Sri Lanka and an International Cricket Council XI have played Twenty20 International series in Pakistan.Read More | ‘Sensible decisions key for Indian team’s success in Australia’However, according to a PCB official, the series could be rescheduled as close to the World Cup as possible. “Since we will be hosting the Australians, we have told them try to play two matches in Pakistan. The process is on but nothing is final as yet,” the official said. Apparently, Pakistan is scheduled to play five ODIs in England before the start of the World Cup.Read More | Johnson taunts Kohli, says he looks forward to no feisty send-offsEhsan Mani, who is the current chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, has said teams have slowly started changing their perceptions about travelling to Pakistan, pointing out that the Asian Cricket Council’s annual general body meeting held in Lahore last week was a good step forward for Pakistan cricket as ICC’s CEO Dave Richardson was also present. “Once anyone comes to Pakistan and views the situation by himself, it will not be hard to convince him that international cricket can return to Pakistan properly. But it is not easy trying to change the perception of people who have not been to Pakistan in recent times,” Mani said.Return of Steve Smith, David WarnerThe proposed series against Pakistan could see the return of Steve Smith and David Warner, who have been banned for one year due to the ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town against South Africa. Following the decision of Cricket Australia to not reduce the bans, Smith and Warner’s bans will come to an end on March 2019.Australia last played an ODI and Test series in Pakistan in 1998, winning the Tests 1-0 and the ODIs 3-0.
