It previously projected it would break even or earn $200m on that basis.Chrysler also pinned its 2010 revenue forecast at around $42bn, in the middle of its earlier range of $40bn to $45bn.The automaker has said it plans a public offering of shares in the second half of 2010. Chrysler’s larger rival, General Motors, is slated to go public later this month.Chrysler was on the brink of liquidation in 2009 before a US government-funded bankruptcy slashed its operating costs and gave majority ownership to a union-affiliated trust fund and management control to Fiat SpA. The company is introducing 16 new or updated models, including the Fiat 500 subcompact. US dealer inventory is expected to rise in the fourth quarter to support the sales of the new products.Chief executive Sergio Marchionne said he was encouraged by trends heading into 2011, but said the automaker still had much to prove on its path to recovery.“We got a bloody nose on the way into the recession and I’m not sure we got it all back on the way out,” Marchionne said during a call with analysts. “So we need to fight harder.”The automaker reported a net loss of $84m, compared with a net loss of $172m in the second quarter. Excluding $308m in interest on loans and other expenses, the company posted an operating profit of $239m, its third consecutive profit on that basis. Revenue rose to $11.02bn from $10.5bn in the second quarter. center_img whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite HeraldZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldmoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTaonga: The Island FarmThe Most Relaxing Farm Game of 2021.

Uno de ellos lleva información de donde viven varios de sus parientes en Estados Unidos. Foto de Trish Motheral.[Episcopal News Service] Dieciséis muchachos con edades de entre 14 y 17 años se reunieron el 6 de julio en torno a un mapa de América en el que fijaron notas adhesivas con sus nombres de pila junto a sus países de origen. La mayoría de las notas fueron a dar a Guatemala, seguida por Honduras.Entonces, la Rda. Susan Copley les pidió a los adolescentes que pusieran las notas junto al lugar al que se dirigían. Algunos dijeron que se quedarían con parientes en Nueva York; otros se dirigían a Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, Maryland y California.Un mes antes, el 5 de enero, Copley y algunos voluntarios de su iglesia comenzaron a visitar a los menores no acompañados en Abbott House, una agencia de servicios regional de carácter comunitario que tiene su sede central en Irvington, Nueva York, un pequeño pueblo del valle del río Hudson, justo al sur de Tarrytown, donde Copley es el rector de la iglesia de Cristo y la misión de San Marcos [Christ Church and San Marcos Mission].Además de llevar a cabo visitas semanales, donde juegan deportes con los chicos y celebran una eucaristía abreviada en español, los miembros de la iglesia oran por los niños y se movilizan para apoyarlos. En una tarde, sus congregaciones de habla inglesa y española recaudaron $1.000 para comprar zapatos para los niños, algunos de los cuales llegaron descalzos a Abbott House.No se trata sólo de proporcionarles a los niños “un contacto positivo con las personas que se ocupan de ellos”, invitando a diferentes miembros de la iglesia de Cristo y de la comunidad de San Marcos, lo cual contribuye a contrapesar algo de la negatividad que acompaña sus relatos, dijo Copley.Desde principios de junio, las cifras récord de menores de edad no acompañados que han cruzado la frontera suroccidental [de Estados Unidos] fundamentalmente de Guatemala, Honduras y El Salvador— y la crisis humanitaria que se les asocia ha estado en las noticias, en las cuales los políticos han estado sorteándose la culpa, y los que protestan haciendo titulares.Con excepción de los menores no acompañados provenientes de México y Canadá, que pueden ser devueltos inmediatamente a sus países de origen conforme a la ley de inmigración de EE.UU. de 2008, los menores que llegan solos deben ser detenidos por las autoridades estadounidenses y sujetos a una vista de deportación, que puede tomar años. Un menor no acompañado es por definición una persona menor de 18 años de edad que está separada de ambos padres y no se encuentra al cuidado de un tutor ni de ningún otro adulto.Para ajustarse al influjo de menores inmigrantes, el gobierno ha improvisado albergues en bases militares y ha contratado hogares de tránsito, como Abbott House, donde los menores pueden ser atendidos antes de entregárselos a un pariente, con quién estarían hasta el momento de la vista de inmigración.Abbott House les brinda a los menores que llegan solos cama y comida, asesoría de caso, consejería individual, servicios médicos y educativos, recreación y actividades de esparcimiento, aculturación, servicios legales, transporte y acceso a servicios religiosos antes de ubicarlos con familiares o en acogida temporal, según un comunicado de prensa del 4 de junio.Las iglesias acuden a la fronteraEn un llamado del pasado 3 de julio a la Diócesis de Texas Occidental, el obispo Gary Lillibridge describió las necesidades humanitarias de su diócesis, particularmente en las poblaciones fronterizas de McAllen y Laredo.La iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s Episcopal Church] en McAllen, con la colaboración de Ayuda y Desarrollo Episcopales, se ha incorporado a una campaña mayor, la Comunidad de Fe de McAllen para la Recuperación de Desastres, un grupo de agencias eclesiásticas y gubernamentales que se han asociado para responder a crisis, mediante la ayuda  con comidas y lavado de ropa para individuos y familias albergados en la iglesia católica del Sagrado Corazón [Sacred Heart Catholic Church] o en tiendas levantadas en su entorno.San Juan comenzó preparando mochilas con artículos de higiene personal, tales como jabones, champús y acondicionadores tamaño de viaje, un peine, un cepillo de dientes y otros artículos, así como paquetes de suplementos nutritivos, tales como galletitas de mantequilla de maní y barras de cereal.“Organizamos ‘grupos de embalaje’ en la iglesia todos los domingos y miércoles y juntamos tantos paquetes como podemos, y embalamos esos paquetes según se necesitan”, dijo la Rda. Nancy Springer, auxiliar del rector en San Juan.Empeños semejantes están teniendo lugar en Laredo, donde los feligreses de la iglesia de Cristo [Christ Church] preparan mochilas que también contienen artículos de higiene personal y nutricionales, para entregárselos a los niños y sus familiares que acuden a su ciudad.Y en Arizona, donde se dijo que mujeres y niños se bajaban en las estaciones de autobuses de Tucson y Phoenix, la Iglesia también se ha sumado a los empeños interreligiosos.Sin embargo, la crisis en el triángulo norte de América Central no sólo concierne a los niños, sino a los adultos y a las familias también. En las últimas semanas, decenas de miles de mujeres con niños y otros núcleos  familiares que huyen de la violencia en Guatemala, El Salvador y Honduras han llegado a Texas y Arizona, según explica una reciente actualización de la defensa de la inmigración  de la Red Episcopal de Política Pública: “Cuando las mujeres y los niños huyen de sus hogares en estas cifras ello indica una crisis humanitaria, no una amenaza a la seguridad”, dijo Katie Conway, analista de inmigración y refugiados de la Iglesia Episcopal. “Los episcopales a través del país han respondido a la crisis con compasión y amoroso servicio y llamamos al Presidente y al Congreso a hacer lo mismo. Creemos que Estados Unidos es capaz de hacerle frente a este desafío sin comprometer nuestros valores o nuestra seguridad, y sin darles la espalda a madres e hijos vulnerables que buscan paz y protección”.(El 25 de junio, Conway y Alexander Baumgarten, director de la Oficina de Relaciones Gubernamentales de la Iglesia Episcopal con sede en Washington, D.C. presentó un testimonio ante el Congreso respecto a la crisis en nombre de la Iglesia.En marzo, el Alto Comisionado de las Naciones Unidas para los Refugiados (ACNUR), expresó su preocupación por el creciente número de niños que cruzaban la frontera “empujados por la violencia, la inseguridad y el abuso en sus comunidades y en sus hogares” y pidió a los organismos gubernamentales “que tomaran medidas para mantener a los menores de edad a salvo de abusos de derechos humanos, violencia y delitos, y para garantizarles su acceso al asilo y a otras formas de protección internacional”.El ACNUR fundamenta su preocupación y su llamado a la acción en un informe de 120 páginas titulado Niños en fuga, que se basa en entrevistas con más de 400 menores no acompañados provenientes de Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras y México que se encuentran bajo detención federal. El informe indica que muchos de los niños creían que corrían peligro en sus países de origen y que serían seleccionados por las autoridades que evaluarían sus necesidades de protección internacional sobre la marcha.El informe dice también que muchos de los jóvenes entrevistados eran parte de movimientos de una  “migración mixta”, que incluye tanto a individuos necesitados de protección internacional como a migrantes en busca de trabajo.“Es de suma importancia advertir que la vasta mayoría de estos niños pueden ser en verdad solicitantes de asilo”, dijo Deb Stein, director del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración. “Hablar de deportarlos a las mismas circunstancias terribles de las que huyeron por seguridad sin la oportunidad de buscar protección es ignorar sus derechos conforme a la Convención de los Refugiados de la ONU de 1951, de la cual EE.UU. es signatario. Esto se pierde en la acalorada retórica de deportarlos simplemente porque entraron ilegalmente al país, cuando en efecto no es ilegal solicitar asilo”.A partir de octubre de 2011, el gobierno de EE.UU. comenzó a advertir un aumento dramático del número de menores no acompañados provenientes de El Salvador, Guatemala y Honduras, el cual para el año fiscal 2013 había aumentado de 4.059 a 21.573. Para el 15 de junio de 2014, el número había llegado a 51.279 para este año fiscal. Desde 2009, el ACNUR ha registrado un aumento en las solicitudes de asilo [de personas] provenientes de esos mismos tres países.

When producing customer-specific solutions, the company generate large amounts of residual wood. Lendager UP collects the wood, which would otherwise have been burned, upcycle it and reintroduces it to the built environment.Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTNatural treatment Using waste wood as façade material in the Nordic climate put the materials to the ultimate test. Aesthetics but also resilience to the elements are crucial qualities. The wooden boards are prepared for their new life using a 700 years old Japanese preservation technique where the surface of the wood is burned. This way the glucose evaporates, and the pores of the wood gets sealed. The process reduces the risk of digestion and fungus attacks and visually the result is a unique look and feel since all wood burns differently. As a bonus the method reduces the need for harmful chemicals. The technique is also used on selected walls inside the house – but here the surfaces have been brushed and treated with white pigmented linseed oil to make the beautiful wooden veins stand out and to create a natural transition between the burned surfaces on the outside and the oiled wood on the inside.Save this picture!© Rasmus Hjortshøj – COASTThe structural frame and rafters are made from upcycled and fire treated wood.

Appeal court confirms heavy fine for Voice of America correspondent

first_img Follow the news on Uzbekistan to go further News May 11, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders reiterates its support for one of Uzbekistan’s few remaining independent reporters, Abdulmalik Boboyev, following an appeal court decision on 12 November to uphold the fine of 10,000 dollars that a Tashkent court imposed on him last month. The fine is 400 times what he earns every month as Voice of America correspondent.Boboyev is entirely innocent of the charges on which he was convicted – defaming and insulting the Uzbek people and threatening public order. The case is typical of the way the Uzbek authorities treat journalists as criminals, but Boboyev’s only crime was to do his job as a reporter.After being found guilty in October, Boboyev told Reporters Without Borders he feared that the already small number of independent journalists in Uzbekistan could shrink even further. Referring to his conviction, he also said he would fight to the end.U.S. and British representatives, journalists and human rights activists were able to attend the appeal hearing. After deliberating for just 10 minutes, a jury issued its decision to confirm the lower court’s verdict. Boboyev’s lawyer said he would appeal to the supreme court.In a statement issued after the hearing, the U.S. embassy condemned the use of the criminal justice system to punish journalists for freely expressed views, saying it was contrary to Uzbekistan’s constitution and its international obligations.President Islam Karimov meanwhile submitted a constitutional reform proposal to parliament the same day as the hearing. It includes changes to the judicial system and provisions for better funding for the media.

According to the New York Times, reversing the tariffs against China is one of a range of measures that would be meant to protect a weakening US economy from recession, though The Times did not specify which tariffs officials were considering withdrawing. Additionally, the Washington Post reported on Monday that a payroll tax cut was being considered.Business Insider states that economic experts have long warned that tariffs threaten US consumers, with a JPMorgan report on Monday estimating that the latest round of tariffs, set to take effect beginning on September 1, would cost the average US household $1,000 a year.Earlier this month, the Dow Jones fell more than 800 points and the 10-year treasury yield briefly broke the two-year rate for the first time since 2005—an economic marker that has often proved a forerunner of recessions in times past. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 800.49 points, S&P 500 fell 2.9%, and the Nasdaq declined 3%. In response housing industry economists have discussed how a recession and the stock market declines are impacting buyers and investors.“Sharp and deep stock declines reduce confidence among all players in the economy. As such, potential homebuyers may become more cautious about making such a significant and long term financial commitment,” said Tendayi Kapfidze, LendingTree’s Chief Economist. “Others may see their down payment funds decline if they were keeping some of the money in the stock market. The stock decline is accompanied by a significant decline in interest rates so this makes the monthly payments more affordable for buyers who chose to follow through.”According to Kapfidze, tariffs on Chinese goods will be passed through the cost of new construction and renovations. He added the sector that could be hit the hardest are lower-priced homes, as “thin margins on lower-priced homes will shrink further.”“This will exacerbate the inventory challenge at the lower end of the housing market, accelerating prices here beyond the added tariff expense, and worsening the affordability and availability problems in this part of the market,” Kapfidze said.Danielle Hale, Chief Economist of realtor.com, said the biggest victims of the market’s decline are luxury homes, since they have “considerably more exposure to stock investments.”Data from Redfin revealed the market for luxury homes increased, although slightly, in Q2 2019. Average sales prices for luxury homes grew 1% year-over-year to $1.64 million, bouncing back from a 1.7% drop in Q1 2019.“However, a possible secondary impact on the broader housing market can happen if the stock drop hits consumer confidence,” Hale said. “Even though most Americans have fairly minimal exposure to the stock market, its performance is widely covered in financial and mainstream news, and thus a prolonged or severe drop in the markets can rattle the confidence of consumers and homebuyers even if they have little direct exposure to stocks. So far, confidence has remained high, but the situation is still developing.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agolast_img read more

The Bench of Justice S. K. Panigrahi and Justice Sanju Panda observed, “The exercise of that power of preventive detention must be with proper circumspection and due care. In a regime of constitutional governance, it requires the understanding between those who exercise power and the people over whom or in respect of whom such power is exercised.” The matter before the Court A Criminal Writ Petition was filed by the petitioner (Sk.Mabud) challenging the order of detention dated 12.02.2020 passed by the District Magistrate, Balasore under Section 3 (2) of the National Security Act, 1980. It was argued by him that the detaining authority, while presenting the report against the detenue didn’t disclose the basic facts, material particulars which led to passing of an order of detention. It was further stated that he was not disclosed as to what was the basis and circumstances which led the District Magistrate to come to a conclusion that the detenue was terrorizing the innocent general public. It was also argued that the cases relied upon by the detaining authority are cases affecting individuals and none of them in any manner affects the tempo of life. On the other hand, Counsel for the Opposite Party submitted that there were chances of the petitioner getting bail in Sahadevkhunta P.S. Case No.319 and there was a chance of resumption of the antisocial activities after his release. Court’s Observations The Court observed that Preventive detention is not to punish a person for something he has done but to prevent him from doing it. Therefore, the Court said, “Since the detention order passed on the allegation of involvement of the detenu in a number of criminal cases without disclosing any material in the report of the Superintendent of Police or materials available before the Detaining Authority that there is likelihood of breach of public order, the detention order cannot be sustained.” The Court also noted that the detaining authority, at the time of passing the order of detention, as well as the State Government while confirming the same, “should take into consideration the nature of allegations and offences alleged in the grounds of detention to examine whether the same relates to ‘public order’ and the normal law cannot take care of such offences and that the acts of the detenu mentioned in the grounds of detention are prejudicial to maintenance of public order or they only relate to ‘law and order”. With regard to the present case, the Court noted that the District Magistrate had relied on a list of 20 cases provided by the Superintendent of Police while ordering for detention. However, the Court observed that he failed to take into consideration that out of the 14 cognizable cases, there are 6 cases which have not yet been charge sheeted yet including the one in which the SP is apprehensive that the petitioner may receive bail. Further, the Court said, “The details of the alleged bail application have not been provided in the order of detention, ground of detention or in the application of the Superintendent of Police, Balasore. Further, no details have been given about the alleged similar cases in which bail was allegedly granted by the concerned Court. The only mention regarding bail is in the letter dated 26.12.2019 by the Superintendent of Police, Balasore wherein he had reported that it has come to his knowledge that the petitioner has arranged for his bail.” Lastly, the Court said “This statement is entirely ambiguous and this Court cannot rely on the same. Considering the above submissions, we are of the view that this Court should not allow the petitioner-detenu to be kept in custody on the basis of order of detention which is illegal, bad in law hence amounts to illegal custody of the petitioner detenu.” The Writ Petition was thus, allowed and the order of detention approved by the State Government on 20.02.2020 was quashed.In related news, while setting free a person (Javed Siddiqui) arrested under the stringent National Security Act (NSA), the Allahabad High Court on Monday (07th December) observed, “Where the law confers extra-ordinary power on the executive to detain a person without recourse to the ordinary law of the land and to trial by courts, such a law has to be strictly construed and the executive must exercise the power with extreme care.” Advocates Debasis Sarangi, B. S. Dasparida, S.K.Dash, S. Mohapatra, K. Mohanty and M.K. Agrawala appeared on behalf of the Petitioner. Case title – Sk.Mabud @ Mamud @ Madud v. State of Odisha & another [W.P.(CRL.)
