The Turkish authorities pushed measures through parliament on 15 May tightening official control over the national radio and TV monitoring council RTÜK, allowing army representatives to be part of it, increasing fines for media offences, encroaching freedom of expression on the Internet and risking a further narrowing of media ownership.

The presence of the two main media organisations does not counterbalance the clear tightening of state control of RTÜK.- The new measures expand further the scope of RTÜK as a full-scale media police by adding to the weapons it can use against radio and TV stations, such as warnings, fines, censorship of programmes and suspension of broadcasting. The fines are on average 1,000 times higher than before. Operators of media that continue to broadcast in defiance of RTÜK will face between six months and two years in prison, as well as very heavy fines. The assignment of broadcasting frequencies is now the job of the Telecommunications Council.- The area of freedom that the Internet represents for journalists is under threat from RTÜK, which is now authorised to monitor it, especially news portals. Defamation on the Internet and the dissemination of “false news” there will be subject to heavy fines of up to 100 million Turkish pounds (about _70,000). RSF notes that last December, Istanbul’s no.2 magistrates’ court prosecuted the website ideapolitika.com (site of the magazine Idea Politika) and ordered it to close for having “insulted the armed forces.” In February this year, Coskun Ak, the moderator of an Internet forum, was fined € 5,000 for “mocking and insulting state institutions” because he did not remove a message posted on the forum about human rights violations in southeastern Turkey.Many observers say clauses of the amended law concerning media ownership may narrow control down further.RSF calls on the European Union to inform the Turkish authorities that this repressive turn away from freedom of expression seriously jeopardises Turkey’s efforts to get closer to the EU.

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ben Klick, Stark CountyAs long as everything goes as planned, today will be our last day of harvest. I have 55 acres of beans to cut and we are done. We are beyond ready for it to be done. It has been a roller coaster of a year and a downhill roller coaster of a fall. We are not that upset with how the yields turned out after the weather we had but there have been little issues with things going wrong along the way and we are definitely ready to be done.Planting date was very crucial this year. The later crops were not nearly as dry and that was a lot more money in drying costs. There was quite a bit of re-adjusting the machine from the early corn to the late-planted corn and it slowed down the harvest.The double-crop beans needed August and September rains that they didn’t get. The yields were all over the place. They got planted later than they should have been and it got dry for them at the wrong time. This year they weren’t really worth cutting.The corn yields really varied by farm and soil type. We planted some fields that we should have waited a day or two longer last spring but we had to plant when we could. As a young farmer I see things I get stressed about but then my dad tells me that he has been seeing these kinds of things for years.The ground is not as favorable as I thought it would be but we are getting the weather so we can start the fall jobs that we should have been doing a month ago. We have chicken litter to spread, lime to spread and barns to clean out.We usually shoot to be done two weeks before Thanksgiving, and here we are still working at harvest the week after Thanksgiving, but we were still blessed with a pretty good harvest and nothing disastrous went wrong. It is what it is.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.
The Home department has informed the State government that it may not be able to provide security for university elections to be held later this year. In a letter to the Maharashtra Cabinet, senior security officials have said there is a shortage of troops due to the ongoing situation in Jammu & Kashmir and the forthcoming Assembly elections in October. “Keeping in mind the Assembly elections and other developments, most of our troops will be diverted towards other priorities. In such a scenario, it will be difficult to provide cover to the campus elections,” reads a department note accessed by The Hindu. The government has decided to hold campus elections nearly 25 years after they were last held in colleges across the state. The Higher Education Department is expected to hold the college elections in September and has prepared a timetable for the same under the purview of Maharashtra Public Universities Act 2016. However, the Assembly elections are expected to be held in the third week of October which would require a sizeable security detail. The Government has already deployed as many as six companies of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) for the brewing crisis in Jammu & Kashmir. “We have taken these CRPF companies out from the Naxal-affected areas. We were short of forces even during the Lok Sabha elections, and do not want a repeat of the same scenario. Hence, we are curtailing our commitments,” said a State Home Department official. The schedule of the college elections will be released after the cabinet meet on Tuesday, while a meeting of the university official too is impending to firm up the plans. University elections in the State were banned in 1993 following the murder of a law student in 1989. Under the new norms passed earlier this year, the government has barred candidates from political parties from contesting or using any symbol, officials said.

As a result of their very sick daughter they turned to the UCLA Pediatric Neurology team for answers. With the help of Dr. Sankar, Rubin Brown Professor and Chief Division of Pediatric Neurology and his team Blayke was diagnosed with a very rare disorder called autoimmune epilepsy, a disease discovered less than ten years ago.
