Cellular Goods (LSE: CBX) shares listed last Friday on the London Stock Exchange through an initial public offering (IPO). It joins cannabis companies such as Kanabo and MXC Pharmaceuticals that have come to market recently.Normally I don’t consider IPOs as there’s limited information to make an informed investment decision. But I couldn’t resist looking at this one. So here’s my take on the stock.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…What does Cellular Goods do?In a nutshell, Cellular Goods sells cannabis-related products to consumers. In fact, it’s focused on creating synthetic CBD products. This means that the CBD is created in the lab rather than extracted from the cannabis plant. CDB has been used to treat a wide range of conditions. Inflammation, pain relief, anxiety, depression and insomnia are just a few of them.I think there are a few things that sets Cellular Goods apart from the other cannabis companies that have come to market of late. Firstly, this is London’s first listed ‘pureplay’ consumer CBD company.Unlike its peers, Cellular Goods makes no medical claims on its products. In the long term I reckon this may hinder the company in the face of future competitors as there’s no intellectual property. Like many consumers, I’d rather buy products that are backed and supported by proven medical science.So what are the products?I should stress that Cellular Goods, at present, hasn’t sold any products. The company is therefore pre-revenue and loss-making. The products are due to launch later this year. According to the website, they’ll be available in September 2021. To me this would be a risky investment as the company’s CBD products haven’t been proven to sell yet.Cellular Goods is focusing on two product lines. The first being high-end skincare and the second is athletic recovery products. It’s launching with three synthetic CBD products: a face mask, a daily skin serum and a topical sports recovery gel that will be applied via a touch-free roll-on applicator.The products will be sold direct-to-consumer through the Cellular Good’s website and through physical retail partnerships.Significant shareholdersThe footballer-turned-global celebrity David Beckham owns 5% of Cellular Goods through his DB Ventures firm. I reckon this is one reason why the IPO has received a lot of attention.The fact the company is associated with the current buzz ingredient, CBD, has probably also helped. But my opinion of the stock won’t be swayed by a high-profile celebrity who has been an early-stage investor.Cellular Goods shares: would I buy?Cellular Goods could be successful, but it’s too speculative and risky for me. Its products haven’t been proven to sell to consumers yet. Therefore it’s incurring costs and has no profit.That said, CBD is in demand right now, especially in the beauty industry. This, combined with the Beckham link, and the possibly-savvy decision to launch a sports-linked product, could be a winner for Cellular Goods. I guess time will tell. But I think there’s a lot of hype around the company and I’m waiting for this euphoria to subside.I would like to see the company deliver trading updates and results as a public company. That way, I have more information to make an informed investment decision on. So for now, I’m sitting on the fence and monitoring Cellular Goods shares.

[Episcopal News Service] A number of years ago I helped plan a church event that despite our best efforts attracted only a handful of people. Afterwards one of the other organizers consoled me by saying: “Remember, Jesus said feed my sheep, not count my sheep.”That’s surely a wise statement, for we should focus on individuals, not statistics. But we do keep count, don’t we, both in our local parishes and in the national church? And there’s no denying that over the past 50 years, the Episcopal Church has had a steadily declining number of people in its pews.During the Episcopal General Convention in July, New York Times columnist Ross Douthat wrote a piece asking “Can Liberal Christianity Be Saved?” His thought-provoking essay led me to his book Bad Religion: How We Became a Nation of Heretics. The book is meant to generate debate on both the left and the right, for no matter what your denominational or political leanings, there’s something to offend everybody in his critique.Of liberal-leaning churches like ours, Douthat writes, “[They have] burned their candle at both ends, losing their more dogmatic parishioners to more fervent congregations and their doubters to the lure of sleeping in on Sundays. Any institution that calls human beings to devotion and self-sacrifice needs to justify that call.”That last sentence gets to the heart of our problem, I think. What is it that justifies the call to our church? What makes us different than a social club, a political party, or a service organization? What feeds our spirits, draws us out of our comfort zones, and challenges us to be better people? Where is the transcendent in our church?I thought of Douthat’s critique when I spoke to an Episcopalian recently who told me how she’d grown up in a conservative denomination, one that she was happy to have left behind forever. “The thing I like about the Episcopal Church,” she said, “is that you can believe and do whatever you want.”Jesus tending (but not counting) his flock. Photo/Lori EricksonIn one sense, of course, her statement is right. The Episcopal Church respects individual conscience. We value the importance of questioning, debate, and skepticism. But her comment also made me wince. If we take our Christian faith seriously, we can’t believe or do anything we want. The church is not a cafeteria buffet line.Located in a left-leaning university town, my home church loses few parishioners to more conservative denominations. But we have toomany who simply drift away because there’s not enough to anchor them in our church. I must admit that on some Sundays I envy them their leisurely mornings spent with a stack of newspapers and cups of coffee. Their spiritual-but-not-religious orientation looks mighty inviting: listening to NPR’s “On Being” with Krista Tippett and reading the occasional book on spiritual topics, they don’t have to deal with the messy and often-frustrating aspects of parish life.Given this, it’s not surprising that one of the fastest growing categories in surveys of American religious belief is the “nones”—people unaffiliated with any organized religion. A religious studies professor who spoke at our church last year put the problem this way: the biggest challenge facing the Episcopal Church, he said, is to keep people from “thinking their way out the door.”We want to keep people thinking, certainly, but we also need to realize that rationality alone is an arid and lonely path. And I think we need to resist the urge to accept our declining numbers, dismissing those who have fallen away by saying that they weren’t the right kind of Episcopalians anyway. We need to pay more attention to thoughtful outside commentators like Douthat as well as those within our church offering critiques from both ends of the political and theological spectra.I speak as one who came relatively late to the Episcopal Church. I came back to Christianity after a long time away because I was drawn to the traditions, liturgies, and intellectual challenges of Anglicanism. I respect its mysteries and paradoxes and its commitment to social justice. I don’t want this church to become a kind of boutique denomination: small, exclusive, self-congratulatory, and increasingly irrelevant. — Lori Erickson writes about inner and outer journeys at http://www.spiritualtravels.info/.

Our parish is doing well with new parisoners. Things are changing in other ways that hurt my heart. Very few advent hymns from the hymnal, Christmas carol singing before Christmas, no Lessons and Carols, the greening of the church before the last Sunday in Advent all change the way I have learned to Advent. I’m in an Episcopal Church because of the liturgy and following the church year has become part of my piety and leads me on my spiritual journey. I don’t want these changes and I feel like a voice crying in the wilderness.

Our Church has a magnificent opportunity to practice Christian formation if we would only do so and stop accomodating the culture. For some reason there are parish leaders who believe that Christian faith and practice occur by breathing the air or by osmosis. The hard work of enculturating people to Christian literacy is given up on too quickly; whether it be greening up and caroling with the Mall or offering communion to anybody who is curious so as to not challenge anyone’s egos. We have canons related to our worship and education life that should be followed with as much regularity and vigor as the canons dealing with stuff in the church.

Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET By Richelle ThompsonPosted Dec 14, 2016 Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Albany, NY Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Called to Common Mission 15th Anniversary, Ecumenical & Interreligious The Rev. Kari Jo Verhulst (left) and the Rev. Thea Keith-Lucas in the Massachusetts Institute of Technology chapel.Editor’s Note: On Jan. 6, 2001, after 30 years of dialogue, the Episcopal Church and Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, while maintaining their autonomy, agreed to come together to work for joint mission in the world and to allow clergy to move freely between the two churches. This week, ENS is running a “Called to Common Mission” series celebrating 15 years of Episcopal-Lutheran full communion.[Episcopal News Service] The group sometimes jokes that they should be known as the “Scurvy Prevention Society” instead of the Lutheran-Episcopal Ministry. To reach Massachusetts Institute of Technology college and graduate students who often live on free pizza and Ramen noodles, the ministry offers a homemade meal each Wednesday night cooked by the chaplains – who both happen to be vegetarians.The students “tell us they’re trying new foods for the first time,” said the Rev. Kari Jo Verhulst, the Lutheran chaplain. “They’re actually getting some vegetables!”The home-cooked meal is just part of the appeal for the 10 to 15 students of the blended Lutheran-Episcopal Ministry in Cambridge, Massachusetts.“This group made me realize that there were other Christians who thought similar things that I did,” said Lindsay Michelle Sanneman, a second-year graduate student. “It made me feel like I was not alone.”Sanneman attended the weekly worship service and meal at the beginning of her first year of graduate school. After trying out several other churches and groups, Sanneman knew she had found a place to belong, and she rearranged her schedule to leave Wednesday nights free.Eighteen months later, she is the president of the ministry.Of course, the people drew her into the ministry. But she also believes that the very nature of the ministry’s blended history as a two-denomination group has created an atmosphere of openness, hospitality and a willingness to look for what binds them together instead of what drives them apart.“Within Christianity and between the denominations, there are historically so many divisions,” said Sanneman. The Lutheran Episcopal Ministry is a model “of unity in the Christian church… . We learn that the core of our beliefs in the same, and that we’re really not that different.”This sentiment of finding common cause and shared beliefs is a strong thread among the leaders of the campus ministry.“I think it’s really powerful to offer a place that values open inquiry and affirms all people – and at the same time is really rooted in the gospel and in the hope of redemption and resurrection,” said the Rev. Thea Keith-Lucas, the Episcopal chaplain for the ministry. “If we can focus on the things we share and offer that to the community, I think we’ll be a lot stronger than if we are insistent on making young Episcopalians or young Lutherans.”Having fun together: Chaplains Kari Jo Verhulst (far left) and Thea Keith-Lucas (far right) join students Jane Heyes and Ashley Morishige in a rendition of “Happy Birthday” for another student.Indeed, especially among young people, denominational ties are far less important than for previous generations. While 23 percent of all Americans identify as “nones” or religiously unaffiliated, the number increases to one in three millennials (ages 18 to 29), with fewer and fewer people claiming a specific denominational membership.Participants in the Lutheran Episcopal Ministry bear out this lack of denominational identity. While several students are either Lutheran or Episcopal, about half come from other religious backgrounds, said Keith-Lucas.“They come here for an affirming stance and a progressive view,” she said. “The fact that we’re not being planted in one denomination or another frees us up to think about what we offer to this campus.”Earlier this fall, the ministry sponsored a panel called “Coming Out Faithful,” with LGBT clergy discussing their personal experiences and ways to reconcile their faith with gender identity or sexual orientation. And, said Keith-Lucas, “I got to teach the term ‘hermeneutics’ to students of MIT – which doesn’t happen a lot.”The partnership between the Lutherans and Episcopalians at MIT has a long history, predating the institutional churches’ Called to Common Mission by nearly three decades. A Lutheran and an Episcopal chaplain came together in 1972 to form the common ministry, with a focus on issues of social justice and reconciliation. The Episcopal and Lutheran components continue to have separate budgets and governance today, as well as chaplains from each tradition. But in most other ways, the two are merged.For many years, the liturgy for the worship rotated between Episcopal and Lutheran. But in the past few years, “we discerned that it was really confusing,” said Verhulst. “We wanted to lower the threshold so people felt like they could enter into the worship experience.”Verhulst and Keith-Lucas worked with students to craft a blended service that draws upon both traditions.“Students, this generation especially, are looking for experience, for connection and for caring leaders,” Verhulst said. “They are looking for a place that is open and welcome to all.”That doesn’t mean that the followers of the two denominations can’t learn from one another. The Episcopal Church’s understanding of prayer and how it shapes belief has been a rich area for the blended ministry to explore. And the Lutheran emphasis on confession has been an opportunity for growth for the Episcopalians in the group, said Keith-Lucas.“Our discussions about liturgy keep me from going on autopilot,” she said. “I have to explain and articulate what’s important and what I love … . We look at what is grounded in our shared Christian roots and say, ‘This belongs in the service because it’s been tried and tested across denominations and across the centuries.’ ”For Jane Heyes, a third-year doctoral student, the focus on community is the heartbeat of the ministry. Together, the students and chaplains explore “the theology of the imperfect,” Heyes said. On a campus like MIT, “everyone looks extremely successful, and you feel like you’re not. It’s really easy to fall into a trap of feeling down on yourself,” Heyes said.The campus ministry offers “a space to be OK. We laugh a lot. We talk a lot … . We set aside a time every week for family dinner where we can let our hair down and not worry about everything.”Plus, said Heyes, it’s a place to explore life’s meaning and your faith. As a scientist, a comparison that she heard long ago resonates with her.“Practicing your faith in this world is like doing science,” said Heyes. “If you did science on your own, all by yourself, people would be very incredulous of your claims. … There is value in doing faith together as a group. You grow spiritually, and you have people with you on the journey, when you’re struggling and when you’re happy.”– Richelle Thompson is deputy director and managing editor of Forward Movement.

In 1974, I arrived as a freshman at MIT. Retired Bishops of the Episcopal Church had just ordained 11 women as priests, starting a difficult argument within the church. The House of Bishops denounced the ordination as invalid, and forbid their acceptance as priests. I walked into the MIT chapel on a Wednesday evening, and there I saw two priests, Episcopal and Lutheran, a man and a woman. The woman was Constance Parvey (1931-2011) . In 1972, she had become the fourth woman to be ordained by the Lutheran church. If she had just been ordained as an Episcopal priest, the two would have been trouble. But she was a Lutheran. And the two churches had signed an agreement not long ago to recognize each other’s priests. When I had arrived, I didn’t know how to make a decision about ordaining women. After meeting Constance, I saw no reason not to. And yes, we had a service every Wednesday followed by dinner. It was a wonderful community, and I will never forget the time I spent there. I am happy to see that the community of Episcopal and Lutheran ministry is still thriving.

There were two important inputs regarding the settlement located in Ulus, which was to be situated on a lot of approximately 80,000 square meter and would consist of 26 masses of the same size. The first of these inputs is the meaningless rigidity of building conditions that are in effect in these regions of the city. As for the second input, it emerged before us as the entity of a project that was prepared beforehand, whose intricate processes of approval were legally completed, and for which, within this context, the investor preferred to preserve the outlines. Although architectural decisions were shaped almost solely with the concern to conform to operative building conditions, the fact that the number, location and levels of building blocks in the existing project were exactly preserved in the new design emerged as a requirement.Save this picture!Courtesy of Emre Arolat Architects + Ertuğrul Morçöl + Selahattin TüysüzThe most important factor that determined the course of the design was this requirement, combined with building inputs, which defined quite rigidly the massive structure of the blocks to be built, such as the 15-by-20-meter base area of blocks that was to be parallel to the slope of the lot, the projections on stories above the ground floor, and the roofs with a 33-percent slope on all four sides. Another of the project’s exigent features was the fact that it is meaningless to speak of a noteworthy architectural characteristic as regards the Ulus Valley, which has become a torrent of buildings due to the many gated communities that seem to have penetrated into every nook and cranny that could be found, side by side, one on top of the other, all built under the same conditions mentioned above.Save this picture!Courtesy of Emre Arolat Architects + Ertuğrul Morçöl + Selahattin TüysüzGeneal Ulus building structure that is formed by the special building regulations of the area, which is the case also for Maksimum Houses Project. Despite all these unfavorable factors the Savoy Project’s location within the city, the dynamic structure of its topography, and the investor’s audacious attitude regarding the architectural level of this settlement, were all factors that gained importance as being inspiring and heartening enough. Year: Photographs: Courtesy of Emre Arolat Architects + Ertuğrul Morçöl + Selahattin Tüysüz+ 33 Share Save this picture!Courtesy of Emre Arolat Architects + Ertuğrul Morçöl + Selahattin TüysüzThe garage issue, which, despite being of vital importance for these kinds of investments, seemed to be unsolvable in the existing project, was given precedence as one of the main conditioning elements of the design. The garage level was designed to hold a sufficient number of cars and to fit the basement of each building block, and, by problematizing the upper cover, at the same time constituted the substructure of a “new topography” within a negative-positive relationship. Each different level in the garage was connected by ramps, thus rendering it fluid. Some of the shells that formed the cover were completely removed; added to this, occasional slits and interstices formed by the slight difference in level effected between two shells created surprise nuances by blurring the boundary between the underground layer and the exterior. These nuances enabled both daylight to penetrate the shell structure, and the connection between recreational areas and the exterior. The aim was also that at night they be used to illuminate the landscape thanks to the light that would seep from the inside.Save this picture!SectionIt was envisaged that it would be an important characteristic for the settlement that the shells, which are the main material of the exterior landscape, would, in places, be present in all there hardness and sharpness, though most often partly “concealed” by the layer of vegetation growing over them, while they would still remain legible in some way from all points of the area. How this fabric, which gives the feeling of being broken up and fragmented rather than that of continuity, could be repeated on the buildings emerged as an important problem at this stage. Conventional apartment blocks take shape according to decisions concerning mass, which are determined by building conditions; such expressionistic eagerness as described above confronts and clashes with these blocks and transposes them by luring them within its own boundaries. A much enjoyable and experimental design process was made possible thanks to this. The aim was that he fabric be present, though with a fragmentary identity and without loosing its continuity, throughout the entirety of the surfaces running along the garage, exterior landscape, and housing blocks; and also that the pattern which would take shape therefrom would turn into a coupling agent that would prevent disjunctions between the topography and the structure thanks to its all-extensive mapping effect.Project gallerySee allShow lessCompetition for LEED: GBI’s Green Globes Shakes Up Building CertificationArticlesHappy Cities and Stranger Danger: An Interview with DIALOG’s Bruce HadenArticlesProject locationAddress:Istanbul, TurkeyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Boston school bus driversOct. 15 — Before the sun could rise over Boston on Tuesday, Oct. 8, the rank-and-file members of United Steelworkers Local 8751 were taking a stand against what they called the unfair and illegal practices of Veolia Transportation, Inc.These school bus drivers reported for work at all four bus yards at their appropriate punch-in times, but refused to drive their buses until Veolia agreed to a meeting with the union to discuss issues regarding the company’s failure to adhere to terms and conditions of the signed collective bargaining agreement. The drivers stated they were engaging in protected activity, not a strike. Minutes turned into hours with no response from the company.By 11:15 a.m., the company’s response was delivered. The drivers were ordered off the property at all four yards, and the gates were closed and padlocked. An illegal lockout had begun, an action expressly prohibited by the contract.Background on unfair, illegal company practicesVeolia assumed management of the Boston Public Schools’ transportation vendor contract on July 1. On June 18, in the midst of a transitional period prior to taking over management, Veolia signed an agreement that it would honor the union’s current contract and would operate under all terms and conditions.Drivers say the company has consistently failed to honor the terms and conditions of that contract and in fact Veolia has engaged in a campaign to violate some of its most critical aspects. They say that the contract represents 35 years of collective-bargaining progress in wages, benefits, working conditions and drivers’ rights while on the job.The workers have filed in excess of 50 individual and class action grievances against Veolia in violation of the contract. They involve massive and chronic weekly payroll shortages, including not allowing workers to generate their own payroll documentation — a decades-long practice of time-stamping Daily Bus Reports; unsafe and impossible bus route problems, resulting in late student pick-ups, drop-offs and overcrowding of buses; unilateral changes to and failure to provide correct health, dental, sickness and accident, and long-term disability insurance benefits; failure to provide efficient training for license renewal; failure to abide by and adhere to the grievance and arbitration process; use of GPS in violation of provisions of the contract and many more issues.In addition to the individual and class action grievances, the United Steelworkers filed an Unfair Labor Practice containing 16 charges against Veolia with the National Labor Relations Board on Sept. 13. However, on Oct. 7, the local union was informed by its international attorney that due to the federal government shutdown, all related investigations, gathering of witness testimony, and any action on the union’s demands were indefinitely suspended.Many of the drivers and the rank-and-file leaders have told the media that this was the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back. USW Local 8751 Vice President Steve Gillis stated during a rally on Oct. 10, “Our drivers were denied their rights under the law to have the government act on their complaints and were forced to take matters into their own hands [on Oct. 8]. We demand that Veolia immediately stop their unfair labor practices and honor the contract they signed.”When City Councilor Charles Yancey, a respected African-American community leader and 13-term councilor, learned of the dispute between the drivers and Veolia, he personally went to Veolia’s corporate office. At 11 a.m., Yancey, accompanied by Gillis and a delegation of drivers, attempted to request a meeting with Veolia to discuss the drivers’ protest and issues. A group of Veolia managers refused to speak with Yancey and called the police to throw the group off the property. Boston police and company managers closed and locked the gate behind them.That afternoon Veolia made a motion in the U.S. District Court of Massachusetts requesting an injunction ordering the drivers back to work. Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. denied their request, based on the fact that there was no credible evidence that the workers were “on strike” or planned a strike the following day.Negative media and role of city officialsFor four days, from Oct. 8 to 11, the Boston school bus drivers’ actions were headlined in the media — covered even before the Boston Red Sox and their postseason road to victory. Despite being at the four bus yards almost around the clock and making dogged attempts to interview bus drivers, most of the media coverage was negative and anti-union, with little regard for actual facts.Besides not allowing neutral or pro-union commentary, the media focused on negative and slanderous comments by city officials. This is noteworthy because the bus drivers are employed by Veolia, a private company, and not by the city of Boston, making them private rather than public employees.City officials, Mayor Thomas Menino in particular, are well aware of the union’s history and reputation of assertive advocacy for workers’ rights. They viewed this dispute as a convenient opportunity to launch an unyielding, anti-union campaign. Press statements by officials delivered false reports about the drivers’ issues. They also labeled union leaders “rogues” and “renegades,” saying they selfishly risked the safety of Boston school children by refusing to drive. Mayor Menino went so far as to say that the drivers were “selfish, angry people who can’t follow rules.” They claimed that the union instigated an illegal strike while saying nothing about the company’s lockout.While acknowledging the federal court’s ruling against an injunction, Menino called for the termination of all employees involved in “the strike.” The Boston Public Schools issued daily robo calls to parents fraudulently warning of impending problems caused by the “renegade element” of school bus drivers who were instigating “the strike,” even after the lockout ended the next morning.Veolia’s bad faith negotiations: ‘An injury to one is an injury to all!’Union leaders said that on Oct. 9, after the company ended its illegal lockout and finally agreed to meet with the union, the drivers returned to their runs in a show of good faith. Negotiations between Local 8751 and Veolia lasted approximately 10 hours that day.Nevertheless, the parties were unable to come to an agreement on any of the 15 issues the union wanted to discuss. Instead, company management responded by delivering letters of suspension, with the threat of termination, to Local 8751 Vice President Steve Gillis and Grievance Committee Chairperson Steve Kirschbaum, and by threatening disciplinary action against an additional five union members. As of Oct. 15, three more drivers are being disciplined.Despite a large, heavy-handed police presence of dozens of cops and under the watchful eye of the media, hundreds of workers rallied in support of the two suspended leaders at the Readville bus yard at 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 10. They came from all four city bus yards. The workers roared their support for several minutes before Kirschbaum, a founder of the union, and Gillis were able to give their speeches about what happened at the negotiations. Both men have decades of leadership in the union.For this and other videos giving the workers’ point of view, see the Team Solidarity website at tinyurl.com/d5tntcg.As drivers from all four bus yards took the microphone, they vowed to stand as one with their leaders and to continue their just struggle until Veolia and the city of Boston respect their contract and their rights.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

(AP Photo/Nati Harnik) + posts printTCU nearly clawed their way back from a 7-1 deficit Saturday night in Omaha, but the third inning-ending double play of the game turned out to be a season-ending one as the Frogs lost to Coastal Carolina 7-5 and were eliminated from the College World Series.The Chanticleers went on a hit parade in the 3rd and 4th innings, scoring a combined 5 runs with two outs in those frames. Starter Jared Janczak was chased after the third inning, and the TCU bullpen allowed the last four runs.This game marks the third straight year the Frogs have been eliminated in the College World Series.For TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle, this year hurts more than some of the others.“It’s as disappointed as I’ve ever been leaving this great city,” Schlossnagle said. “We had the club to win this thing.”The main difference in the game was between the two teams’ performance with runners in scoring position. The Frogs were just 2-8, whereas CCU went 6-17.“We were putting the ball in play, some hits just didn’t fall in for us,” senior centerfielder Dane Steinhagen said. “Some timely hits that we needed, we just couldn’t get.”Coastal got the scoring started in the bottom of the second inning with a solo home run from Tyler Chadwick.G.K. Young would drive in the next two runs in the game with a triple to center field that rattled around Steinhagen’s glove and popped out in the third inning.“I kept my eyes focused on the ball, and I didn’t check the wall,” Steinhagen said. “I was just kind of banking on hearing the warning track. It was in there, it just kind of ricocheted out.”TCU got on the scoreboard in the 4th, when Elliot Barzilli’s single scored Cam Warner.Coastal added four runs in the bottom of the 4th inning with two outs, as two singles and a double made it 7-1 Chanticleers.From there, the Frogs began to slowly chip away at the lead.Luken Baker grounded out to second base on a fielder’s choice to score Warner in the sixth inning. Ryan Merrill’s sac fly scored a run and chased starter Alex Cunningham in the seventh, and Michael Landestoy’s groundout scored another in the inning to make it 7-4.In the ninth, TCU mounted one final rally, with Steinhagen hitting his second double of the game and Merrill driving him home on a single to bring the score to 7-5.But Landestoy hit into a double play to end the season on the next at-bat, and just like that, TCU’s “rebuilding” year ended two runs away from the CWS finals.Coastal Carolina will go on to play Arizona in the final series on Monday. TCU will go home to Fort Worth, and begin setting their sights on a fourth straight trip to Omaha.

Their lawyers did not attend the hearing.Although relieved by the release of Shuvo and Parvez, Reporters Without Borders urges the judicial authorities to the drop the blasphemy charges against all four bloggers and calls for the immediate and unconditional release of Mohiuddin and Biplob.

They are facing the possibility of a 14-year jail sentence and exorbitant fine of 10 million takas (100,000 euros).“The charges against these four bloggers are completely unfounded and stem solely from a lack of courage on the part of the Bangladeshi authorities, who have clearly chosen to yield to pressure from Islamists. These judicial proceedings should be terminated at once and the bloggers should be released without delay.“We hope their release is imminent but we meanwhile urge the authorities to order Asif Mohiuddin’s immediate transfer to an individual cell in which he can receive medical treatment. Making him share a cell with Islamists who were accomplices to a murder attempt against him is a disgrace.”Dhaka magistrate Hasibul Haque rejected bail petitions for the four bloggers on 17 April after receiving two reports from police investigators, one on Mohiuddin and one on the other three bloggers.Jyotirmoy Barua, a lawyer for one of the bloggers, said a Dhaka court that specializes in computer crimes would handle both cases. He added that the two reports are being treated as prosecution cases under Section 57 (2) of the Information and Communications Technology Act, 2006 (which was amended in 2009). The next hearing is scheduled for 21 April.Mohiuddin’s lawyer, Alauddin Mollah has filed a petition for special treatment for his client, who needs access to care and medicine because he is still suffering from the effects of the multiple stab wounds he received in a murder attempt encouraged by Islamists in January.His lawyer has also requested Mohiuddin’s release on bail on the grounds that no evidence has been produced of the crime he is supposed to have committed.Read the latest press releases about the jailed bloggers:- Call for detained blogger’s immediate release (11 April)- Blogger Asif Mohiuddin arrested over “blasphemous” blog posts (3 April)- First arrests of bloggers after creation of anti-blasphemy committee (2 April) Help by sharing this information
June 2, 2021 Find out more Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes ChinaAsia – Pacific to go further Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns the arrest of Guan Jian, a reporter with the Beijing-based weekly Wangluo Bao (Network News), while investigating allegedly corrupt real estate transactions in Taiyuan, the capital of the northern province of Shanxi. Guan was arrested on 1 December and has been held incommunicado ever since.It is the second case this month of a journalist being arrested as a result of reporting on alleged abuse of authority and corruption in Shanxi. CCTV reporter Li Min has been held since 4 December. “Abuse of authority by local officials is common in this region, which is biggest source of coal in China and is riddled with corruption,” Reporters Without Borders said. “It is becoming increasingly dangerous for journalists to investigate corruption allegations involving officials. We urge the central government to investigate these cases and punish those who are really guilty.”Beijing News quoted Shanxi Public Security Department sources as saying Guan has himself been charged with corruption. He was arrested at a Taiyuan hotel by police officers from Zhangjiakou in the neighbouring province of Hebei. Video footage recorded by the hotel’s security camera shows him being forcibly taken away in a car by five men.Guan, 49, went to Taiyuan at the end of November to investigate allegations of illegal land transactions involving a real estate company and local officials. Wangluo Bao has not named the company but it is reportedly headed by the deputy director of the Shanxi People’s Congress.Wangluo Bao editor Ren Pengyu said to Beijing news he has had no contact with Guan since a call a few hours before he went missing in which he said he had just had a good interview.Guan’s son Guan Yufei told the Reuters news agency he had not had news of his father since his abduction. “His friends couldn’t reach him, his colleagues couldn’t either,” he told Reuters. “At first we thought he had just gone on a reporting trip, but then after several days when he still wasn’t in touch, we got worried.”Guan Yufei went to Taiyuan to look for his father but, aside from the hotel security camera footage, came back empty-handed.CCTV reporter Li Min was arrested at her Beijing home on 4 December by four policemen who had been sent from Shanxi province by Shanxi prosecutor He Shusheng, whom Li had accused of abuse of authority in a report broadcast by CCTV. Like Guan, Li has herself been accused of corruption.
