Reporters Without Borders criticises the interior minister for defending the police decision to open fire on the demonstration. Organisation Help by sharing this information Latin American media: under control of families, economic and political elites Reporters Without Borders voiced deep concern today about Wilman Caychigua Robles, a freelance contributor to Radio Inca Tropical and the El Chasqui daily newspaper, who is fighting for his life after being shot in the head while covering a protest in the southeastern city of Abancay on 5 December.“We call for a prompt investigation to establish who was responsible for this tragedy, in particular, who was responsible for the police decision to open fire on the protesters,” the press freedom organisation said. “Without minimizing the violence of the protest, we are outraged by interior minister Pilar Mazzetti’s comments defending the use of real bullets by the police and we call for an explanation from the government,” Reporters Without Borders added, voicing its hope for a swift recovery by Caychigua.About 20,000 people took part in protests in Abancay on 4 and 5 December calling for the removal of Rosa Suárez, the head of the Apurímac regional government. There were open clashes with the police on the second day when demonstrators tried to storm the regional government’s headquarters.Caychigua was hit by a stray bullet probably fired by a policeman. It entered his skull and exited through his mouth, and also caused serious neck injuries. He was rushed to a Cuzco hospital where doctors were considering transferring him to Arequipa or Lima in an attempt to save his life, his wife, Pilar Castro, told the PressPerú news agency.Two other journalists were injured in the clashes. Rúben Melgarejo Aguilar of Radio Laser was struck on the head by a thrown stone, but was only slightly hurt. Eloy Martínez of Canal 13 television was hit in the leg by a teargas grenade.More than 50 people were injured in the clashes and one, a student, was fatally shot, according to the interior ministry. The minister, Mazzetti, nonetheless publicly defended the police decision to open fire.

In this sense, one of the most important markets was real estate. This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210203005610/en/ While crypto currencies reach record values, the investors chose the real estate market as the main area for profit realization. (Photo: Business Wire) Evaluating the developments in the market, Bayram Tekce, Chairman of Tekce Overseas, stated, “With our goal to be a pioneer in PropTech, crypto payment methods were always on our agenda. In this period, when the value of Bitcoin reached record levels, we created a significant value with the reliable and easy payment methods we offer to investors and we experienced a serious increase in demand in this regard.” Sold more than 50 real estate in the last 2 months Bayram Tekçe, who made the first real estate sale with crypto currency in the world in 2017, stated that they have sold more than 50 real estate in the last 2 months when the crypto money market peaked. He added that Turkey, having a liberal economy, offers many opportunities to crypto currency investors for balancing their assets by using property investment as a leverage. Bitcoin, the crypto currency with the highest volume in the market, is on the agenda in recent days with record price increases. The third of the Bitcoin Halving was held on May 11, 2020 with the objective of slowing down the production and balancing the supply on the market. As a result of the halving, Bitcoin was expected to gain more value as a medium of exchange or investment. In addition, investors in search of a tool that will not lose value due to the global pandemic; the American presidential election and the increasing interest of corporate companies in this area also triggered the increase in value. Being a decentralized digital currency, Bitcoin attracts the attention of many investors looking for wealth security.

On January 31, President Donald Trump issued a major disaster declaration for Anchorage and affected counties which provided immediate foreclosure relief. This allowed HUD to offer a 90-day moratorium on foreclosures of Federal Housing Administration-insured (FHA) home mortgages.Also, HUD will provide an automatic 90-day moratorium on foreclosures of FHA-insured home mortgages to displaced homeowners and low-income renters. Several options are being offered for families who need financing to replace, repair, or refinance in the wake of the disaster. Further, HUD’s Section 203(h) program provides mortgage insurance to disaster victims whose homes were destroyed or damaged beyond repair. This means borrowers from participating FHA-approved lenders are eligible for 100 percent financing, including closing costs. HUD’s Section 203(k) loan program enables those who have lost their homes to finance the purchase or refinance of a house, along with its repair through a single mortgage. The offer extends to existing single-family residents needing to finance repair damage. With this announcement, homeowners and low-income renters forced from their homes in areas affected by the earthquake have more help available. In an effort to get the word out to those who need it,  HUD is sharing information with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. They are also reaching out to housing providers that may have available units in the impacted counties, including public housing agencies and multi-family properties.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR: STEVE DAVIS ENDORSES LORI SHERMAN FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE

first_imgFORMER CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATE STEVE DAVIS ENDORSES LORI SHERMAN FOR STATE REPRESENTIVEAs a Democrat, I am encouraged by the caliber of young candidates that the Vanderburgh County Democratic Party is attracting. The divisiveness of the Republican controlled State House has not gone unnoticed by hard working residents and it’s time for Indiana citizens to make a change from top to bottom at the state level.It is a shame that three of our best and brightest young guns are running in Tuesday’s Primary Election for the same seat, Indiana House District 77. Ryan Hatfield has Democratic political blood running in his veins, and has an impressive resume. Brandon Lee Ferguson, a great example to other young leaders, is working his way up the ladder in his chosen field, and sincere in his wish to do right by his peers.That being said, we have to make a choice. I have come to the conclusion that Lori Sherman is the strongest in a field of these strong candidates. After speaking with her and listening to her goals it is apparent she has the greatest vision for the citizens of District 77. She will bring the same intelligence, fortitude and problem solving to Indiana that she has already used when she overcame obstacles that has defeated many young people. She has lead by example starting in her early childhood. Hard work and intelligence allowed her to come from being an emancipated sixteen year old to an honors graduate from both high school and college. She won a number of scholarship offers to law schools, but chose to return to Indiana’s Maurer School of Law in Bloomington. After graduating law school and passing the bar exam, she turned down several offers in bigger cities to come home to Evansville and give back to the community that she loves.She started by advocating for children as an attorney for the Department of Child Services. She bought a house in the center of the city and transformed it into a charming bungalow that she proudly calls her home. I can’t imagine a better person to represent District 77.  Lori has proven herself time and time again and has led by example with her actions and accomplishments and now offers those skills and commitment to the residents of Indiana.FOOTNOTE: The letter was published without opinion, bias or editing.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
