His reporting critical of the Pakistani authorities and his support for the Baloch national movement were almost certainly the motive for his abduction and murder.“If the local and federal authorities want to rein in the violence in the province of Balochistan, they must conduct an exhaustive and impartial investigation into Abdul Hameed Hayatan’s murder,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If it goes unpunished, the province’s journalists will have every right to treat it as another extrajudicial execution.”Hayatan was shot in the head and chest. Marks on his body clearly indicated that he was tortured before being killed. The body of a student, Hamid Ismail, was found alongside Hayatan’s. In a reference to a Muslim Eid (festival) that has just ended, a message found with the bodies said: “Eid present for the Baloch people.” Journalists based in Balochistan told Reporters Without Borders that Hayatan was probably murdered by members of the security forces (who are fighting Baloch armed separatists) or a Jihadi group.Balochistan is by far the most dangerous region in Pakistan for the media. Three other reporters have been killed there this year. One was gunned down in June (http://en.rsf.org/pakistan-balochistan-killed-journalist-bla-28-06-2010,…) and two others were killed in suicide bombings, in April (http://en.rsf.org/reporter-killed-in-quetta-16-04-2010,37038.html) and September (http://en.rsf.org/pakistan-journalists-killed-and-injured-in-06-09-2010,…).Several cases of extrajudicial executions of journalists in Pakistan have not been investigated properly. They include the 2006 abduction and murder of Hayatullah Khan in the tribal area of North Waziristan (http://en.rsf.org/pakistan-tell-us-who-killed-our-father-say-15-06-2010,…).

London, Lancashire tie-up seeks ‘devil’s advocate’ for alternatives

first_imgFor LPP, liquid alternatives are considered to encompass alternative risk premia strategies, active relative value strategies and dynamic directional strategies. The two founder funds – London Pension Fund Authority (LPFA) and Lancashire County Pension Fund (LCPF) – are targeting a 50%-55% allocation to alternatives, according to a spokesperson.The procurement is not about asset advice nor is LPP seeking anyone to perform due diligence.The procurement is open until 4 September and the contract has been valued at £3m.LPP was created by the LPFA and LCPF a year ago, and has since launched three pooled funds, for global equity, private equity, and infrastructure.It recently said it plans to launch credit, fixed income, and total return funds in the coming months. The UK’s £12.5bn (€14.2bn) Local Pensions Partnership (LPP) is looking for access to independent third party analysis as a check on its internal recommendations for alternative investments.According to a procurement notice, the pension services provider is looking for access to a “broad library of detailed investment and operational due diligence research papers”.The partnership would use such material to help “round out its thinking” about investments, according to a spokesperson. The procurement notice referred to access to external research providing a “devil’s advocate to internal investment recommendations”.The focus is on liquid alternatives, private equity, private credit and infrastructure.last_img read more

Veterans of Syracuse defense determined to improve off of disappointing 2011 season

first_imgShamarko Thomas means no disrespect to Chandler Jones when he says Syracuse’s defense is tighter this year. Jones was a first-round pick in the NFL Draft who is now in training camp with the New England Patriots, but the defense he left behind may have improved its chemistry.Five seniors will start on the Orange’s defense, and together, they’ve made sure everyone understands what needs to be done to improve.“I feel like this year, our defense has a bigger bond,” Thomas, Syracuse’s starting strong safety, said. “That’s the key of a great defense, champions, is being brothers and being on the same page. And I feel like that’s going to take us far. “Syracuse’s finished near the bottom of the Big East of nearly every defensive category last season, allowing 28.5 points per game. SU was last in total defense, allowing 386.4 yard per game, and sixth in rushing defense with 128.2 yards allowed per game. The Orange also had the fewest sacks in the Big East, 28.On the surface, nothing about last year’s defensive performances give much encouragement to a better season in 2012. The defense did not improve as the season went on.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut the unit is placing a collective emphasis on the smaller points that it might have missed last season. Defensive end Deon Goggins also said some of last season’s struggles were because of inexperience.“Honestly, we just had a lot of young guys. We were just young as a team,” Goggins said. “That’s all it was. After last year, going through what we went through, I see the changes in a lot of the young guys that have to step up.”Goggins said the unit took the initiative this spring to continue working after the practices were over, when no coaches were around. They walked through drills, worked one-on-one and continued on their days off.They also left the SU campus and went on trips to build chemistry.Even a small trip to Green Lakes State Park in nearby Fayetteville went a long way toward improving that bond, Goggins said.Marquis Spruill, who’s moving from middle linebacker to outside linebacker, said he remembers that even during his freshman season, SU’s defensive players weren’t as “in sync” as they are now.He was a freshman in 2010, when the unit ranked seventh in the nation in total defense.They hold each other accountable, and compete in everything from lifting in the weight room to seeing who can go the longest without getting tired during drills outside in the sweltering heat.As practices progress, their work intensifies and continues to improve.“As the practices go, it gets better,” Spruill said. “I saw it during the springtime. We came off a bad record. It leaves a sour taste in your mouth. You only want to get better, and that’s what everyone wants to do.”Losing Jones would seemingly be a big hole to fill, but Goggins said it’s not something the defense is concerned about. The defensive end was glad to see Jones go accomplish his dream of reaching the NFL.It also gives someone else on the Syracuse defense a chance to step up.Whether or not the off-the-field improvements carry over to the defense’s performance on the field remains to be seen. For now, at least, the players are optimistic that they’ll make a difference.“I feel like our mentality is just come together,” Thomas said. “Come together and be hungry. If you be hungry and you work hard, it’s all going to come together for you.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on August 3, 2012 at 5:55 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemanlast_img read more

Your Next Gaming Throne Has Finally Arrived: Meet Opseat

first_imgWe remember the days when our mothers and fathers would tell us to put down the Xbox controller and play outside with our friends. Video games are a waste of time they said. Well here we are in 2019 and we’re about to see esports cross the $1 billion in revenue mark. Take that one mom!All jokes aside we can confidently say that the gaming industry is here to stay. And when you are locked in and ready to “drop in” on Fortnite you better make sure you’re equipped with the right gear. What’s the most important piece? Your gaming throne.The ReadWrite team was lucky enough to receive an Opseat Master Series to review. Don’t tell the boss this one but we definitely took some time out of our workday to give this chair a go! Here’s what we think:Getting Setup Takes Less than 15-MinutesThe Opseat comes in a larger than life box ready to be assembled. We scanned for other reviews online and found that many mentioned the box came a bit banged up. Ours did too, but that’s is definitely not an issue on Opseat’s end. Like the other reviewers the contents in the box were in perfect condition and were packaged neatly.Assembling the Opseat is a breeze. After laying out all the pieces on the floor, it took about 15-minutes to get the chair fully assembled. Opseat provides a small tool to fasten all the nuts and screws, but you may want to use a socket wrench for convenience.Comfort and FeaturesThe Opseat is made out of high quality PU Leather that provides a soft yet sturdy feel. The leather is also perforated to keep cool during those intense shootouts on Call of Duty Blackout. The chair also comes with both neck and lumbar pillows that can be easily adjusted using velcro straps.As far as adjustments go, you can pretty much customize everything. The chair even reclines to a full 135 degrees in case you need to sit back and take a quick nap. The one small downside is that the vertical adjustment seems a bit limited. The average height of our tester was about 5′ 11″ but we use adjustable standing desks to find the perfect gaming harmony. Opseat lists all specs of the seat on their website, so if you have a fixed desk we recommend doing some quick measurements before purchasing.Price and Final ThoughtsAll in all we think the Opseat Master Series is a great choice for the price. The chair retails for $229.00 as of the publishing date of this article. In comparison to other gaming chairs and ergonomic office chairs you’ll see that $229.00 is on the cheaper end. Since you are paying a lower-price you sacrifice a few small features like the use of plastic instead of metals. The chair has plastic arm rests, wheels, and other accents. We can only assume this is done to save cost.If you’re looking for your next gaming throne, and you want to get some great bang for your buck than look no further than the Opseat Master Series!

Mourinho was sacked on Tuesday after two-and-a-half-years at the club, with Pochettino listed as a heavy favourite to join the Red Devils.”I think after nearly five years there are a lot of rumours that have happened in my position here, as manager of Tottenham,” said Pochettino.”I cannot answer this type of question. These type of rumours happen in this business, in football.”I always respect the opinion of everyone, whether people praise me, whether people do not agree with me, whether people say different things. The business we know very well.”A lot of rumours happen but it is not my business what happened at another club. I am so focused in trying to deliver my best job at this football club.”We have ahead of us a very busy run of fixtures, tomorrow we play another derby.”It is so important for us – the quarter-final of the cup and I think everyone understand I am focused on tomorrow and doing my best job.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

The first goal away helps you but we never relaxed, kept the ball well and created a lot of chances. the result is great for us at a tough ground.”We had at least a couple of clear chances.
