US – #WeeklyAddress: September 10 – September 16: Foreign journalists face obstacles applying for work visas in US

first_img“60 Minutes” producer threatened journalist’s job for reporting on allegations against him WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Under the Trump administration, increasingly high requirements have made it difficult for foreign journalists to qualify for a US work visa, according to a September 12 report from the Columbia Journalism Review. According to attorney Rakhel Milstein, journalists must fulfill several admission criteria, which include having a “leading or critical role” in a project, “a similar role in an organization or publication, significant recognition via testimonials from experts in the field, and national or international recognition….high salary and commercial success.” US Citizenship and Immigration Services can also issue a Request for Evidence (RFE), which requires journalists to pay steep costs and provide references, proof of employment, and evidence of reputable published work. Alongside these demands, some journalists have faced hostility from USCIS officials and have cited slow and vague responses to their applications.

When one reporter asked what law President Donald Trump believes has been violated as it relates to the article, she responded: “We would consider someone who is actively trying to undermine the Executive Branch of our government inappropriate and something certainly to cause concern. And they should take a look at it.” The administration’s concerns, the reporter countered, do not warrant accusations of unlawful behavior. Sanders then reiterated the administration’s right to call on the Justice Department, making no reference to the author’s right to constitutional protection under the First Amendment. Jeff Fager, executive producer of CBS’s “60 Minutes” and the subject of an investigation into sexual misconduct, sent a threatening text messages to CBS reporter Jericka Duncan after she requested a comment for a report on allegations against him. Fager wrote: “There are people who lost their jobs trying to harm me, and if you pass on these damaging claims without your own reporting to back them up that will become a serious problem.” Fager was fired on September 12 for sending these messages, and while some CBS employees have expressed regret over his dismissal, most have stood behind Duncan, calling the messages “unacceptable” and “inappropriate.” Press Secretary Sanders says Justice Department has right to consider investigating anonymous op-ed author June 7, 2021 Find out more News to go further ANDREW CABALLERO-REYNOLDS / AFP Help by sharing this information June 3, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

first_img Subscribe Community News LA County Public Works will host a free used motor oil and oil filter recycling event on Saturday, March 7, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m, at O’Reilly Auto Parts, located at 965 East Las Tunas Drive, San Gabriel, 91776.When used oil is illegally dumped into storm drains, it pollutes local water bodies and contaminates sources of clean drinking water. In fact, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, it only takes one gallon of motor oil to contaminate as much as a million gallons of fresh water. That is equivalent to a year’s supply of drinking water for 50 people.People who recycle oil filters will receive one new oil filter. In addition, free used oil containers, shop towels, and funnels will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.Items for drop-off should be prepared by placing oil filters in sealed plastic bags and storing used motor oil in leak-proof containers. Used oil should not be mixed with any other liquid, including water.Used motor oil and oil filters can also be recycled for free at a local certified collection center or on weekends at a County-sponsored Household Hazardous Waste/Electronic Waste collection event. A full calendar of collection events and list of collection centers can be found at www.CleanLA.com.For additional information on the County’s oil and oil filter recycling program, call Edna Gandarilla, Program Manager, at (626) 458-6536.

Aggarwal is among the 27 IRS officers who were compulsorily retired by the Central Government last year.Earlier, the Delhi High Court has dismissed his writ petition on the ground of maintainability on the ground that he had an efficacious alternative remedy available before the Central Administrative Tribunal. Though he filed SLP against this order, it was later withdrawn. The court, had granted him liberty to file a petition under Article 32. While dismissing his new petition under Article 32, the bench, also comprising Justices Indu Malhotra and KM Joseph said:”While permitting the withdrawal of the petition, liberty was granted but the grant of liberty would not amount to an adjudication on the maintainability of a petition under Article 32 of the Constitution. The Union of India is within its rights in submitting that the petitioner must seek recourse to the remedy before the CAT. That apart, the Solicitor General has pointed out that as many as sixty four persons have been compulsorily retired and some of them have challenged similar orders of compulsory retirement and their substantive OAs are pending before the CAT.”The court also directed that if he pursues his remedy before the CAT, it will expedite the disposal of the OA and endeavour to dispose it of preferably within a period of four months from the date of filing.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Northeast yearning for warmer weekend after record cold

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — Record lows were set on Thanksgiving in several cities throughout the Northeast, including Buffalo, Burlington, Hartford, Newark, Rochester and Syracuse. At 19 degrees on Thursday morning, it was the second-coldest Thanksgiving ever in New York City — where it’s still extremely cold this morning. More records could fall today.A milder air mass is heading toward the region, and temps should jump back up over the weekend, into the 50s along the Interstate-95 corridor. Most of the storms affecting the Western U.S. over the last few days are now spreading into other parts of the country, increasing the potential for a significant winter storm for parts of the Plains and the Midwest on a very busy travel weekend. A series of storms out West already has delivered more than 20 inches of snow to parts of the Sierra Nevadas, as wind gusts along the Oregon coast reached 67 mph. Parts of northern and central California saw an inch or two of rain.Another western storm is sliding into the coast this morning, carrying with it more rain and high-elevation snow. Heavy snow is possible in parts of the Cascades and Rockies through early Saturday morning, with 1 to 2 feet expected. Localized flooding in southern Oregon and northern California also remains a possibility.A separate storm is expected to develop in the central U.S. later tonight and then slide eastward, bringing a quick round of rain to sections of the Midwest and Southeast. This could lead to some icy conditions in North Carolina and West Virginia. A coastal low on Saturday may develop and add to the rainfall seen in the Northeast. And on Sunday, a very busy day for travelers, a new storm in the Plains will slide toward the Great Lakes, possibly dropping enough snow to jeopardize flights in cities including Chicago and Kansas City.
