The International Federation of Journalists and Reporters Without Borders had just sent a joint letter to President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani calling for immediate action to locate Shahzad, who wrote about Islamic militants and Al-Qaeda for the online newspaper Asia Today.“We are stunned by this news and we would like to express our full support for his family and colleagues,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “Shahzad was an experienced journalist who covered very sensitive subjects and it is highly likely that his reporting upset people within the government or armed forces.“We urge the Pakistani president and prime minister to firmly condemn this murder and to do everything possible to ensure that those responsible are identified and brought to justice without delay.”Colleagues told Reporters Without Borders that Shahzad was last seen at around 6 p.m. on 29 May when he left his F-8 Sector residence in Islamabad to go the Dunya TV studios for the recording of a current affairs programme. People who tried to call him found that his mobile phone had been switched off. His brother-in-law went to the Markaz district police station to report him missing at 2 a.m. on 30 May.Police today discovered his car parked next to a canal in Jhelum Sarai Alamgir, more than 100 km north of Islamabad. His body was found inside together his Asia Times press card and the press card of a journalist called Hamza Mudassar Ameer of the Al Quds media centre.Shahzad’s latest article for Asia Times was about a Taliban-led attack on Mehran naval base in Karachi on 22 May in which 11 soldiers and four attackers were killed. He said in his report that Al-Qaeda had established a “good network” within the Pakistani navy and that “there were negotiations between an Al-Qaeda operative in North Waziristan and naval officers.”Experienced journalists in Islamabad said they suspected that Shahzad was kidnapped and executed by the military intelligence agency known as the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). Human Rights Watch also said it had learned from “credible sources” that Shahzad had been in ISI custody.Sources close to Shahzad said he had reported getting several warnings from the security agencies in the past in connection with his reporting. This would tend to support the theory that he was kidnapped and killed in connection with his coverage of the attack on the naval base.Shahzad’s murder brings to 16 the number of journalist killed since the start of 2010 in Pakistan, which is ranked 151st out of 178 countries in the 2010 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.When Prime Minister Gilani passed through Paris on 5 May, Reporters Without Borders handed him a report on press freedom violations in Pakistan and told him that the safety of journalists should be a priority for his government.———Mr Asif Ali ZardariPresidentIslamic Republic of PakistanMr Syed Yousuf Raza GilaniPrime MinisterIslamic Republic of Pakistan31 May 2011Dear Mr President and Mr Prime Minister, As leading international organisations representing journalists and press freedom defenders from around the world, we are writing to you with utmost urgency to impress upon you our alarm at the possible enforced disappearance of investigative journalist Syed Saleem Shahzad in Islamabad on May 29. We are extremely worried for the safety of Mr Shahzad. We appeal to you both to exert your authority as President and as Prime Minister to direct Pakistan’s security services and police to conduct an immediate and transparent investigation to ascertain Mr Shahzad’s whereabouts and to bring those responsible for his disappearance to account.Mr Shahzad is the Pakistan bureau chief for Asia Times Online, and is reported to have disappeared in the early evening of May 29, as he was leaving his F-8 Sector residence to participate in a talk show at Dunya TV. It is believed that he was abducted by intelligence agents from the F-6/2 area of Islamabad around 5.45 p.m, which is 4km away from his house. According to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), family members claimed that an unknown person contacted them by phone and said that Mr Shahzad would be released soon. We have strong reason to suspect that Mr Shahzad may have been arbitrarily arrested and disappeared by state agents in connection to his recent articles on the links between Al-Qaeda and Pakistan Navy officials. Mr Shahzad published the first of a two-part investigative series into alleged links between Al-Qaeda and Pakistani naval officials on Asia Times Online on May 27. News We note that Human Rights Watch (HRW) reports being informed by credible sources that Mr Shahzad is being held by the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).Mr Shahzad was reportedly summoned to ISI headquarters on 17 October 2010 to discuss the sources and the content of an article published in Asia Times Online the day before that alleged Pakistan had quietly released Afghan Taliban commander Mullah Baradar, Mullah Omar’s deputy, to take part in talks through the Pakistan army. Mr Shahzad has previously raised concerns in an email to the HRW that he might be disappeared by the ISI. We urgently call on you to ensure the Government of Pakistan does its utmost to bring an end to a very worrying and critical trend of arbitrary arrests and enforced disappearances that could turn into a broader crisis, especially if ISI is involved.We therefore urge the Government of Pakistan to deploy all necessary resources to find Mr Shahzad quickly, and to bring promptly to justice all individuals involved in his disappearance. .By acting quickly and firmly, you have an opportunity now to reverse Pakistan’s appalling track record in investigating abuses against journalists, including murder, abduction and assault. But action must be taken before the trail goes cold. The investigation should be transparent and the public should be kept informed, including in regard to any link between Mr Shahzad’s disappearance and the content of his May 27 article.We have seen too many cases in the past several years when action was not taken quickly while evidence remained intact, as in the murder of Musa Khan Kel in Swat in February 2009. Only with an immediate, transparent and well-resourced investigation into Mr Shahzad’s disappearance can we regard the State of Pakistan as committed to the rule of law and to ending once and for all the culture of impunity that has prevailed for too long when it comes to the use of violence against journalists working in the best interests of Pakistan’s people.Yours Respectfully,Jacqueline Park International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) Benjamin Ismail Reporters Without Borders January 28, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Old school methods still reign in recruitment poll

first_imgOld school methods still reign in recruitment pollOn 7 Oct 2003 in Personnel Today Traditional methods of recruiting graduates are still holding their ownagainst a rapid expansion of online recruitment tools, according to a newsurvey. The Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR)/Barkers National Graduate MediaAudit, asked more than 160 graduate recruiters – who collectively employednearly 14,000 graduates over the past 12 months – to rank the most effectivemedia for recruiting graduates. Topping the poll were careers advisory services and university careersservice on-campus fairs, although websites Prospects Online, Milkround Onlineand Doctorjob were also highly rated. The survey also reveals that recruiters believe work experience andword-of-mouth are the most effective ways of influencing graduate opinion. William Archer, practice head at Barkers Human Resources and author of thereport, said: “Online recruitment is maturing as a medium, particularlybecause it represents value for money. “However, it is important to get the right mix between page impressionsand personal impressions. The challenge for employers is to work out how toconvey the personality of their organisations through the way they communicatewith graduates, both online and in person.” Carl Gilleard, chief executive of the AGR, said: “Graduate recruitersare media savvy – they have to be, with so much choice out there. This auditwill be an invaluable tool for the graduate recruiter’s kit bag as it gives areal insight into the media that their colleagues and rivals find mosteffective.” By Quentin ReadeTop graduate recruitment methods – Careers advisory services– University careers service on-campus fairs– Prospects directory (the directory of graduate employersthroughout the UK)– Employer presentations– Work experience – Prospects Online– Milkround Online– Employer mailings to students– Skills events– Recruitment website Doctorjob Related posts:No related photos.

Learning experience for parents

first_imgAt Sanders Theatre this weekend, a mother explained that she had cooked a special breakfast for the whole family to share together on her daughter’s first morning home — a plan that was derailed when her daughter slept until 1:30 p.m.“I’m just thrilled that you’re eating it now,” the mother said.“Thanks,” the daughter said, mumbling through giant forkfuls of the homemade meal. “Actually, waking up now is perfect, because I’m meeting Brianna at 2 p.m.”“Oh,” the mother said dejectedly. “Well, what time will you be back?”“Um … tomorrow?”Sanders Theatre erupted in a sympathetic roar of laughter. The onstage presentation, performed by Katherine Damm ’13 and Ezra Stoller ’15 — both members of Harvard’s improvisation group, the Immediate Gratification Players — clearly resonated with the audience of parents on campus for Freshman Parents Weekend.The student-improvised scenes were included to help parents better understand the challenges their teens face as new Harvard students, not only adjusting to life on campus, but also to life when returning home. A panel of Harvard administrators addressed the themes illustrated during the presentation.“I think part of what the daughter was trying to get across in this exchange is that freshmen feel like they really change during these first few months at college,” said panel member Anya Bernstein Bassett, director of undergraduate studies and senior lecturer in social studies. “They want to convey that they feel really different, and I think the acknowledgment of that can be huge.”During her welcome remarks, Harvard President Drew Faust thanked parents for trusting their children to the University.“The span of time between move-in weekend and this weekend has probably felt infinitesimal and infinite,” Faust said. “Over the past few weeks, your sons and daughters have embarked on educational journeys like none they’ve taken before. I want your children to feel comfortable here, to find their connections, and to use those connections of feeling truly at home here. But at the same time, I want your children to feel comfortable with being uncomfortable: to embrace ever-present opportunities to upset the notions of who they are as they imagine the possibilities of who they can become. This, in my mind, is one of the great strengths of a liberal arts education — taking risks and striking off in unexpected new directions.”President Drew Faust offered welcoming remarks to parents gathered inside Sanders Theatre.Evelynn M. Hammonds, dean of Harvard College, invited parents to learn more about the many Harvard communities available to their sons and daughters. “By now, your children are starting to settle in at the College,” Hammonds said. “By the end of this weekend, I hope you will also start to feel more comfortable with their new world, and have a better idea of what it has to offer them. Harvard is a big university, but there are many small communities within it, places where students can feel known and accepted.”During his keynote address, Richard Light, the Carl H. Pforzheimer Jr. Professor of Teaching and Learning, shared several suggestions, gathered from 1,600 Harvard students over 10 years, on making the most of the opportunities at Harvard. Light’s book on these interviews, Making the Most of College: Students Speak Their Minds, donates all proceeds to student scholarships at Harvard.Light said that he encouraged students to get to know one Harvard faculty member each semester. “Even if you only succeed half of the time, by the time you graduate, you will know four or five Harvard faculty members reasonably well,” Light said. “Those faculty members may be willing to write letters of recommendation for graduate school, scholarships, or other opportunities down the road.”Light also shared that students who felt the most satisfied with their student experience their first year were those who took only some required courses. Those who stepped outside their comfort zones and explored new academic fields of interest, he said, reported the highest satisfaction with Harvard’s academic challenges. Another key to success at Harvard, Light said, was time. In his role as an adviser, he said, “One of my students told me, ‘Here at Harvard, time is my most precious commodity.’ ” Light added, “I tell my students to be productive: Don’t just ‘hang’ or ‘chill.’ ”At the end of the keynote lecture, the crowd of parents took that advice themselves, gathering their coats, enthusiastic to explore more of the campus that their sons and daughters now call home.last_img read more

Falling Polaroids: After Effects Photo Montage Tutorial

first_imgCreate a falling photo effect in this Adobe After Effects video tutorial – a cool organic look for highlighting still images!In this video tutorial, we’ll demonstrate how to create an organic looking photo effect in AE.  Perfect as a graphic into or slideshow alternative, this After Effects photo montage can be created without any 3rd party plugins or filters.We’ll be using the After Effects 3D camera and lighting tools to give the photo montage depth.  To apply random motion to the falling photos, we’ll apply several After Effects expressions.  Expressions create random motion (limited by the parameters set in the expression) and are much faster than having to keyframe motion on each of the photo elements.  This After Effects photo montage has a wide variety of applications and can be tweaked for your custom needs.  Watch the tutorial below (best viewed full screen) or check out the full transcript for written instuctions on creating this AE photo animation and writing the After Effects expressions associated with it.Full Video Transcript:[color-box color=”gray”]This is Evan Abrams for Premiumbeat.com, and today we’re going to make this falling photo montage in After  Effects you can use to display vacation photos or really any kind of photos, like they’re falling Polaroids. So let’s open up After Effects and get into it.The first thing to do is make a new composition. You can it make whatever you’d like, but we’re going to go with the HGTV1080 preset, 1 minute in length. First we’re going to make the actual photo template that we’re going to use. That’s done by making a new shape layer.Then we add to that shape layer a rectangle, and we want it to be as accurate to the size of Polaroids as we can. We know that it’sapproximately 350 x 425. Make sure that it has a fill and set that fill to white. Okay, now we’re going to duplicate that to create a new rectangle, and this will serve as the alpha channel for the photo parts. I’m going to change its size down to be 300 x 312.5. Then we will change its color to be red and just adjust it up slightly to be in the correct spot. And then we will just rename these appropriate to what they stand for, so that we don’t get confused.Now we’ll create some text using the text tool to make some labels. We’ll just label this, “Vacation?” and then use a font that looks kind of like a marker. I believe I have a font that has marker in the title. So we’ll use that and set the color to be black, but not quite totally black. Just as a pro tip, you don’t want to be absolute in your color values all time.Then we’ll just position this right there, and we’ll use the rotation and scale to get it just to the right size and shape that we would like. Thatlooks good, and now we are ready to add a photo into this.So go ahead and import a photo. Any photo will do. We’re going to use some tropical beach stuff. Just drag that below the red rectangle, and then scale it down to fit appropriately around it. Toggle switches and modes, and then set it to alpha mat of that red rectangle. We’ll go to positioning and you have created your Polaroid.Now we’re going to set all the boxes to be 3D for these layers, and we’ll just edit the position of that photo layer to be slightly higher, which is important to prevent tearing that happens in the 3D rendering process.As well just to hit AA on the bottom layer, and set it to cast shadows, which will be also important later. Select all of those, and then pre-compose them, calling that new composition, “Photo 1”. Click the Collapse Transformation button, so that all of the attributes inside thatcomposition will function out in the main composition. Create a new solid that will serve as our background. Make it a light greycolor, just to differentiate it from the white of the photos, and then set it below that photo layer. Make both of the layers, three dimensional by clicking their 3D switch boxes.Create a new camera and set its blurriness to 200, and its aperture to 1.4. Make sure that its depth of field is on.As well, make a new light. Make it a point light. Make it at least 100% intensity, so that we have some light in our scene. Now open up theposition of the light in the camera, and copy the camera’s position onto the light, which will put the light at where the camera is.We’re going to just push the background back a little bit. Open up its position and move that Z position back just so we can see the shadow coming around the photos. We don’t want no shadows for all of our hard work. So set that to a positive one, some low number. Then you can see the shadows in there. Just make sure that maybe the shadow darkness is at about 50% perhaps. It doesn’t need to be that dark.Now we are ready to actually animate on the photo. So let’s begin.We’re going to open up its transform properties and go into the position. We’re going to separate its dimensions by going through the menus and separating them. What we’re going to do is we’re going to key frame the Z position, which is the depth position, so how close or far away it is, by setting a key frame at about 3 seconds and 5 frames in, and then going back to the start and putting it at -2700, which puts it behind where the camera is. So it will seem to fall past the camera.Then we will easy ease that first frame, go into it’s graph editor, zoom in, and then pull the handle forward. So it seems to slow and then speed up as it gets away, coming to an abrupt rest. That’s pretty much it for keyframes. Most of the motion is actually going to be governed by expressions, and to use that effectively we’re going to need to make a control layer.So go ahead and make a new adjustment layer and call this Control. We’re going to add to it a slider control, and just drag that out onto thecontrol layer. Then twirl open the properties Alt, click on the Z rotation, and then open up the effects slider control slider, and we are going towrite in some expressions so that one can influence the other.The expression we’re going to use is:seedRandom(thisComp.layer(“Control”).effect(“Slider Control”)(“Slider),true); and then random();Make sure there’s a semicolon at the end of the top line as well, and that should do it.You can see it has offset the image, rotating it slightly. You’re probably going to want to multiply that result down there by some kind of higher value, perhaps 10 or something like that. That’s one way to influence the random number that it’s generating.You can see that by wiggling the slider around, it changes that, and if you go into the brackets of Random, and you say “-45, 45”, it’s going to generate a random number between there, and it will change what random number it is by changing the Random seed, which is the slider, and now we can reuse this on the other properties.Just go ahead and select that expression, copy it, and now we’re going to paste it onto other properties. So copy that. Hold and go to the P, hit Position, Alt click on the stopwatch, and paste it into the X position, and instead of using the random number, we’re going to use the wiggle. We’re going to say “wiggle(0,thisComp.width*.5)” to make half of the Comp width, so it will wiggle no times a second, up to a maximum units of half the width. Copy that, paste it onto the height position, and then we’re going to change it from saying width to height, so it’s doing basically the same thing, but up and down instead of left and right.Now we also want them to fall on top of each other, so Alt click on the Z position. Value-index , so you’re going to subtract the index value, in this case 4, from the value of the layers position. So it will always be 4 less, or when you duplicate it, will be 3 less or 5 less or whatever ,depending upon what the layer is, but this causes them all to stack on top of each other. Duplicate as many copies as you need, and that should be enough.Now you just need to offset their animation as they come on. So we’re going to trim all of the layers to be 30 frames long. So advance your play head 30 frames from the start, hit Alt and then close square bracket to trim them.Then select all of the layers and go Animation, Keyframe Assistant, Sequence, hit OK, and then set your play head at the end of thecomposition, and then hit Alt square bracket again to extend the layers.Now you can see they all animate on 30 frames apart, and they’re falling down quite nicely. If you’re ever unhappy with how they’re arranged, just change that slider value, and it will jumble them around into a new orientation.If you’re ever unhappy with where you’re looking at them, use the camera tool to reposition. Just remember your background is in fact 3D, so you’re going to have to go down to your background layer and just scale it slightly to make up the difference. In fact, you can scale it up as much as you’d like, because it’s a solid and you’ll never notice it.So you can reposition the camera, and everything looks totally fine. Just hit C to cycle through your camera tools.And it doesn’t do you any good to have a bunch of photos that are the same, so duplicate Photo 1, double click on Photo 2, and we’re going to go in here and we’re going to swap out this picture for a new one. Just import a new photo. This one of me hugging a bear is nice. Hold down Alt, and then drag it onto the selected layer. As you can see, it replaces it, and then just scale it up to fit, or scale it down to fit, or however you’ll need to scale it. Because when you replace something, it retains the replaced thing’s attributes, so scale position and all that stuff.Make sure you selected the thing you’re going to replace. Hold down Alt, drag on top of it, and then of course maybe change this to be a more appropriate title for the photo or not. It’s not really a question. It’s definitely me hugging a bear. But then go back to the first Comp, and then select the photo you wish to swap out, and do the same swapping maneuver where you selected. Hold down Alt, select Comp 2, and then drag it on top, and then it replaces it.Well, that should be enough to get it done for you, I’m Evan Abrams for PremiumBeat.com. Thank you so much for watching this tutorial. Check out our channels and stop by the blog at PremiumBeat.com for more great tips and tricks in not only After Effects, but a lot of other applications as well.

In Assam Police, designations are not a barrier

first_imgConstables follow orders of their seniors. But, besides doing what they are told to do, constables in the Assam Police have begun giving ideas to top officers for better policing.They have, in the process, drawn the attention of the officers to niggles in the department and what needs to be done to boost the morale of men and women at the bottom of the ranks.An “ideas exchange” interaction between the officers and the constabulary was organised on Friday at the 4th Assam Police Battalion in Guwahati. It was a first-of-its-kind initiative where the officers listened to the constables, speaking only to tell them what could be done with their ideas. “This interaction, followed by a community feast, was for letting the constables share their experience since they know the ground realities better and deal with people more than the officers. The idea was to try to incorporate new ideas towards better, people-friendly policing,” Kuladhar Saikia, Assam’s Director-General of Police told The Hindu on Saturday.The officers of the Inspector-General of Police rank and above, noted suggestions such as turning up at social or religious functions to congratulate or wish the people, and attending the funeral of a villager. The constables also suggested putting the “right man in the right place”. Khargeswar Deka, a constable from western Assam’s Dhubri said the force had post-graduates working as drivers and reporting to police station officers who were academically inferior. “We can make better use of qualifications and certain skills of our colleagues with a bit of honing,” he said. Badrul Haque Laskar from southern Assam’s Hailakandi said the constables get deflated by the lack of promotions. “The department has not conducted exams for constables to become assistant sub-inspectors since 2004,” he said. “We are working on skill development. Eight of our 29 Battalions have been chosen for developing classrooms with computers where all police personnel will be given a refresher course including on public relations every three years,” said A.K. Sinha Casshyap, Special DGP (Training and Armed Police). But some constables underlined the deficiencies of the battalions. Hemanta Narzary from north-eastern Assam’s Likabali said the battalions should have a school for children of the department’s staff. “Each battalion has more than a thousand families and a school would keep us off certain worries while on duty,” he said.“We hope to interact more with the backbone of our 80,000-strong force. Their points have been well taken,” Mr. Saikia said.last_img read more
