She said he was using a rope to hold his hernia in, and had difficulty walking. Two weeks after this visit, he was transferred to the Yen Dinh detention centre, about half a day’s journey from Hanoi.Lam Thu Van, a former surgeon in a Saigon hospital and today head of the Democracy for Vietnam Centre in Montreal, said Son needs an operation as soon as possible, as he could die as a result of complications from the hernia. Son’s wife travelled to Yen Dinh on 11 September with their two children but they were denied the right to see him.A physician and representative of a foreign pharmaceutical company, Son has been in prison since 27 March 2002 for translating an article from the US embassy website called “What is democracy?” and posting it online. He also wrote many articles about democracy and human rights that were posted in Vietnamese discussion forums.The Hanoi people’s court sentenced him on 18 June 2003 to 13 years in prison for “spying” and three years under house arrest. The sentence was reduced on appeal on 26 August 2003 to five years in prison and three years under house arrest.The aim of the ASEM summits is to promote Asia-Europe dialogue. They bring heads of state and government from the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), plus China, Japan and South Korea, together with their EU counterparts and the European Commission president. The next summit will be held in Hanoi on 8-9 October.Over 13 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. More than two hundreds news staffs around the globe are thus sponsoring colleagues by regularly petitioning authorities for their release and by publicising their situations so that their cases will not be forgotten.Currently, Pham Hong Son is sponsored by : SVM Micro, liberation.fr last_img read more

Affordable Youth Camp Planned near Fontana Lake

first_imgWestern North Carolina abounds with summer residential camps, but many are too expensive for kids living here. That’s about to change.A 900-acre YMCA summer camp is planned near Fontana Lake, just three miles from the Nantahala Outdoor Center. YMCA Camp Watia will serve children from Western North Carolina who might not have the opportunity to experience the mountains, streams, trails and wealth of recreational activities throughout the region, said Paul Vest, president and chief executive officer for the YMCA of WNC.The overnight youth camp is expected to cost $550 a week and will open in the summer of 2016. Initially, it will feature a two-story dining hall and eight cabins that will each sleep 12 campers. It’s being built on land owned by Ken and Nancy Glass, who gave the YMCA a 125-year charitable lease on the land.Read more about the camp here.last_img read more

Volleyball in 2nd after tough fight

first_imgAfter a tough five-game loss to No. 2 Penn State which left most the players in tears, No. 8 Wisconsin finds itself looking up at the Nittany Lions for the first time all year. “We are obviously disappointed in the outcome,” head coach Pete Waite said. “It was a great battle between two very good teams. … I’m proud of the team in the way they played. I thought the crowd was fantastic and we really appreciate them coming out. It was great volleyball.”Penn State also acknowledged that it was a great match and that they are going to have to fight Wisconsin the rest of the year to win another Big Ten title.“Tonight we were expecting a battle, and that’s what happened,” assistant coach Salima Rockwell said. “Our team was excited to come in here and play in front of a huge crowd. We knew Wisconsin was going to give us a good fight. We prepared hard, and I think the match turned out to pretty much what everybody expected: a good battle and a pretty tough place to play.”Even though the Badgers now find themselves in second place, they still believe they can claim that elusive Big Ten title that they have been trying to win for many years .“Anything can happen in the Big Ten,” senior libero Jocelyn Wack said. “Penn State went to five [games] with Illinois [Friday] night, so anything can happen.”Badgers spike cancerAlthough the Badgers’ main goal Sunday was to remain atop the Big Ten standings, UW did their part to find a cure for breast cancer. Wisconsin donated 50 cents per fan in attendance to the Madison affiliate of the Susan G. Koman Foundation and with 10,326 fans at the Field House, the Badgers gave over $5,000 to help cure breast cancer. “Our crowd was amazing tonight,” senior setter Jackie Simpson said. “Just to see all that support not only for our team but for the spike cancer event was really something special for us.”Penn State was also happy to participate in the event.“It’s great that so many schools and companies are willing to provide sponsorship and funding to help fight the fight against breast cancer,” Penn State head coach Ross Rose said. “It was a great match and there are always great crowds here. It was a terrific event.”With Penn State usually in town over Halloween weekend, the Nittany Lions were pleased to be playing Wisconsin a week earlier than normal. “It was nice to have a positive cause [instead of] let’s-see-how-many-people-can-get- drunk-and-wear-a-costume night,” Rose said. “It was great event, and we feel very fortunate that we won the match today.”The attendance Sunday was the first regular-season sellout in Badger volleyball history and second largest all-time. The only larger crowd was the first round match of the NCCAA tournament between Illinois and Wisconsin in 1990. The attendance that night was 10,936. The capacity of the Field House has since been lowered for safety reasons, and Wisconsin had to turn people away Sunday because of fire hazard concerns. Wack sets dig recordWith No. 8 Wisconsin up 12-6 in the first game of its match against unranked Ohio State Friday night, Jocelyn Wack dug an attack attempt by the Buckeye’s leading offensive player Danielle Meyer.It was only Wack’s second save on the night, but it gave her 1,921 for it career and moved her one ahead of Susan Wohlford and into first place on Wisconsin’s all-time dig list. “It was fantastic that Jo got her dig record,” head coach Pete Waite said. “She has just proven to be a great defensive player and a big part of our team and our success the last four years.”Wack finished the night with 16 digs and moved into third place in Big Ten history with 1,935 career digs.“It’s awesome to be a part of this program, and it says a lot about the program itself. It’s not all me,” Wack said. “A lot of the digs I get are because of the block and the way they set up, and I get a bunch of touches. I’ve had some great coaches and played with a lot of great players along the way.”Wack was also happy she was able to get the record at home in front of 6,842 fans.“It’s even better (to do it) at home in front of almost 7,000 fans,” Wack said. “It was a great feeling. They were really hoping I didn’t get it last week at Iowa. It turned out well.”Besides helping Wisconsin notch another victory, Wack was able to set the dig record in front of close to 50 Badger volleyball alumni, ranging from before the program was officially in existence to last year’s class in Maria Carlini.“The alumni are great, and there has been some great defensive specialists and liberos in the program, too,” Wack said. “For them to see that too it’s a great honor.”With 22 digs in the match against Penn State, Wack moved into a tie for second place in Big Ten history with 1,957 career digs. Wack tied former Nittany Lion Kaleena Walters. Now Wack needs just 43 more digs to become the second player in conference history to amass more than 2,000 digs in a career.last_img read more

Get a Great Deal on Learning Something New with TeachStreet

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#E-Learning#web TeachStreet, the online community that helps lifelong learners find teachers and classes on almost any subject, is joining the “deals” space today, launching a new feature with both an online and (for now) a local Seattle deal.This week’s online deal: $59 for a 6 month access pass to Educator.com (normally $150). This week’s local deal: $25 for a 3-class package at Arthur Murray Dance (normally $59). Share the deal with 3 friends who sign up, and yours is free.“We should have done it a year ago,” admits CEO and founder Dave Schappell. Perhaps. But the addition of deals to TeachStreet doesn’t make sense simply because of the explosion of interest in the space. Instead, TeachStreet has spent the last year or so focused on building a vibrant community of teachers and learners. There are just under a half million classes listed on the site, offered by around 100,000 teachers and schools.Unlike other sites that are focused on deals only and offer a range of discounted services – deals on spa services, restaurants, tours and the like – TeachStreet will remain focused on education. That means these deals will be targeted at quite a different consumer. Rather than pitching a service to someone who’s on the look out for a deal – any deal – the addition of deals to TeachStreet will benefit those interested in lifelong learning and will serve as another marketing vehicle for the teachers on the site. It will also add a layer of virality as well, as learners are encouraged to share the deals with friends in order to secure free classes for themselves. And in many ways, classes are more fun with other friends along. Not all teachers are required to offer deals, of course. “We offer a suite of ways to use the site,” says Schappell. That includes a number of other tools and metrics for teachers, who are able to see for example how many leads they have, how people view and click on their profiles, how many enrollments they’ve got, and so on. Adding deals to classes makes sense as lessons are the sort of thing that you want to buy multiples of. And in turn, teachers are interested in deals as those who are willing to buy multiple sessions are probably more serious students.But in the end, says, Schappell, it isn’t simply a matter of promoting just the deals, and he thinks the new feature will be a boon to all the other class-providers on the site. audrey watters 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

After the goal his position wasn’t important.”It’s important to play again in four days, maybe positive, maybe negative, it depends on our reaction after the match. In the match we had a bad reaction, now it depends on the reaction in the next three days, I think it’s important to play immediately.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
