Munna was shot dead in the city of Deoghar on 16 December, after being threatened.“The Jharkhand police and judicial authorities must not yield to political pressure in their investigation into the Munna murder,” the press freedom organisation said. “The involvement of politicians and members of the police must be determined, especially as innocent people seem to have been arrested in order to protect those responsible.”Munna was the only Indian journalist to be killed because of his work in 2007. There is an urgent need for the authorities in New Delhi, especially the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), to look into the case, Reporters Without Borders added.Munna, who worked for the weekly Samkalin Tapman, was gunned down outside Baidyanath Dham station in Deoghar on 16 December. The next day, shops and schools in Deoghar stayed shut in protest against his murder, while local journalists wore black badges. The protests spread to the regional assembly, where Jharkhand chief minister Madhu Koda rejected the opposition’s request for a CBI investigation.In an interview for the magazine Tehelka, Munna’s widow, Parvati Devi, accused the state’s minister of urban development and tourism, Harinarayan Rai, and a parliamentarian of the Rashtriya Jantal Dal party, Banka Giridhari Yadav, of masterminding his murder. Last September, Munna wrote a story accusing Rai, then an independent parliamentarian, and his family of acquiring state property. “The police want to divert the focus of the investigation away from the minister,” she said.Munna was often threatened and was the victim of an attack in which he lost an eye and his house was set on fire in 2003, after writing about Yadav’s alleged links with Maoist rebels.“It is the police who killed my husband, as they did not take him to a hospital, and they also allowed the attackers to flee”, his widow told Tehelka. Deoghar police chief Manoj Kaushik initially promised not to rule out the possibility of Rai’s involvement. But soon afterwards, he announced that Rai was not under suspicion and said the murder appeared to be linked to past grudges involving Maoist rebels or known criminals. Two suspects were arrested. One was from the village that Munna came from. The other was a person linked to Yadav.

Institutional Resistance Against Solar in Many Sunny States


first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Across most of the nation, it’s clear solar power is taking off. But still some states are lagging behind and are holding on to policies that cramp growth instead of nurturing it, according to a new report.The Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) recently released a report listing the ten states with high solar potential blocking distributed solar development. These states, primarily located in the Southeast, hold 35% of total solar potential in the United States, but only account for 6% of the nation’s total installed capacity.“We are building a campaign in the environmental community to support distributed solar in the built environment, on rooftops and other kinds of spaces, because it is wildlife friendly and an opportunity for a just energy system,” said Greer Ryan, research associate for the Center for Biological Diversity and author of the report “Throwing Shade; 10 Sunny States Blocking Distributed Solar Development.”“Policy determines whether solar will be affordable, whether it can connect to the grid, and how utilities interact with their customers,” Ryan said. “A lot of whether it is possible for people to take advantage of the technology goes back to policy.”Utilities, greens still miles apart on solar valuation, new report show Institutional Resistance Against Solar in Many Sunny Stateslast_img read more


Women Conceived With Donor Eggs, Sperm Speak Out


first_imgThe Christian Post 4 August 2018Family First Comment: Katy Faust, founder and president of the children’s rights organization Them Before Us, said in an interview with CP on Friday that the practice of donor conception is, “quite simply, the commodification of children … and every Christian needs to stand against it.” And the reason why is because it separates the child from both biological parents, she said. “Not because of a crisis or tragedy such as in adoption, but rather the willful violation of a child’s fundamental right to be known and loved by both their mother and father … simply because an adult wants something.”Women who were conceived with donor eggs and sperm are speaking about their journey and shock of finding out their biological parents are not who they thought they were.A video released last week on the YouTube channel of We Are Donor Conceived, an organization that began in 2016 “where donor conceived people can share their stories with each other and the general public in order to inspire greater understanding about the unique challenges we face.”The video features several women sharing their experiences of discovering that they were deceived about their genes. The women do not identify themselves by name.“When I found out the truth about my origins I was disgusted. I couldn’t look in the mirror. I didn’t want to see myself. I didn’t want to see my body. I didn’t want to hear my name. There was a huge question mark and I didn’t know where I had come from,” one of the women in the video explained.Another said that when she found out she started screaming repeatedly: “What! What!” She was in disbelief that half of what she believed was her family tree was gone.“To realize that I was only half-related to my sister was pretty painful,” she said, noting that at the same time it was validating to know the truth as she didn’t look like her family members and was sometimes asked growing up if she was adopted.READ MORE: https://www.christianpost.com/news/women-conceived-with-donor-eggs-sperm-speak-out-i-often-cant-understand-how-or-what-i-am-226602/last_img read more
