March 6, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Privately-owned TV station being harassed in run-up to parliamentary elections Help by sharing this information News Organisation Moldovan reporters harassed by Russian soldiers on border with Transnistria Reporters Without Borders condemns a raid on the privately-owned TV station Albasat on 25 February by three interior ministry agents, who roughed up and arrested two employees, journalist Tatiana Pantilei and accountant Mihail Pantelei.“This raid was unacceptable,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We deplore the use of such methods, which recall those used in the Soviet era, and we reiterate our request to the interior ministry to guarantee the freedom and safety of independent news media, especially as elections are to take place in April.”Although they had no search warrant, the interior ministry agents tried to seize computers, hard disks and documents. They did not succeed because the two employees resisted. The agents hit them and took them to a police station, where they were subjected to a lengthy interrogation.The interior ministry said it carried out the raid because it had been told by a former Albasat employee that he signed a contract with the TV station that violated Moldova’s labour law. Albasat is also accused of not declaring 400,000 lei (30,000 euros) in profits in 2007, and of using unlicensed computer software.Created in 1995, Albasat belongs to the Euronova Media group, which believes that the station is being harassed because of the parliamentary elections in April.Reporters Without Borders appealed to the Moldovan authorities in May 2008 to guarantee the media’s freedom and safety. Moldova was ranked 98th out of 173 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

ISPCA Centre Manager, Denise McCausland, said: “We’re pleased with how the first year at the centre has gone. It has been a busy twelve months caring for and rehabilitating 67 dogs and puppies, 144 cats and kittens, 6 ponies and donkeys and we have also helped various wildlife casualties including, a swan, a duck, two hedgehogs, one of which was trapped in a drain and was later released following veterinary treatment.“140 animals have already been adopted from the centre, 59 animals are getting ready to start their new lives and we have more animals in our care undergoing treatment and rehabilitation including an orphaned baby hedgehog (hoglet) and starling which are currently being hand reared.”October 2018: Hans the Hedgehog recovers after his rescue from a drain at the ISPCA Donegal ARCPhoto: ISPCA Donegal Animal Rehabilitation CentreISPCA Senior Inspector Kevin McGinley said: “The ISPCA Donegal ARC is the first animal rehabilitation centre of its kind in Donegal and has already helped so many animals. The majority of the animals I have rescued were victims of neglect and abuse and many others were injured and in need of veterinary care. Once they are brought into the centre they are cared for, rehabilitated and then responsibly rehomed.”ISPCA Senior Inspector Kevin McGinleyKevin added: “No two days are the same in my job. I could be responding to a horrific case of animal neglect and later be assisting the local Gardaí and wildlife rangers to locate a royal python on the loose, which happened recently. We are receiving a lot of calls about cats and kittens and our cattery is full to capacity. We are treating a lot of sick and unwanted kittens which could have been prevented if owners had neutered or spayed their cats. “In most cases, spaying and neutering has overwhelmingly positive health benefits and it also prevents accidental litters of kittens or puppies which can also be challenging in finding good homes. Pet owners need to play their part by spaying and neutering their pets and this will massively help in preventing unwanted litters in the first place. We are asking to public to ask their vets for advice and do the right thing for their pets”.ISPCA Donegal Animal Rehabilitation Centre Manager Denise McCauslandDenise said: “The Donegal ARC is going from strength to strength and this has only been made possible with the kind help of our local supporters who have made donations, fostered an animal or volunteered their time. It costs over €100,000 annually to run the centre, including two full time members of staff who care for and rehabilitate the animals in our care. These costs don’t include the local ISPCA Inspector. Donations, no matter how big or small, are really appreciated so we can continue our work – donations can be made online https://www.ispca.ie/donate/ ”.The ISPCA is always looking for volunteers who can help out. The ISPCA has a number of volunteer roles available to work hands-on with the animals in our cattery, kennels and stables. They are also looking for grounds keeping and maintenance volunteers, and people to help out at various events, or to do some fundraising!To become an ISPCA volunteer, you must be over 16 years of age for insurance purposes.

Modern times bear little resemblance to the A Tree Grows In Brooklyn, it-takes-a-village scenes of yesteryear; but one startup, at least, is attempting to foster a greater sense of community on a hyperlocal level.BuildingBulletins provides a simple, social interface for building residents to communicate with one another on just about any relevant topic. From community classes to Craigslist-style classifieds, the site lets residents connect with their neighbors and, as one of their cofounders wrote to us, “get stuff done in their building.”So far, user adoption for the self-funded site is fairly minimal; the most active building boasts 6 users who are residents. Overall, the site has 48 discussions happening in 112 buildings. Ultimately, it’s going to take more users in more buildings to make the site work. But the beauty of a hyperlocal tool like this is that even if only a handful of buildings have users on the site, as long as the saturation of active users in those buildings is fairly high, the site could be useful and successful.The creators say the site’s bulletin boards and other features, such as a live chat module and a building calendar, can be used to make new friends, create discussion topics, organize events, advertise real estate or rentals, buy or sell items, submit pictures and other information about a building, find a house-sitter, and yes, hook up with other residents to avoid that long walk home.As a sterling example, the residents of Barclay Tower in TriBeCa are using the site to organize a pool party meet-and-greet, complain to one another about the noise, gush about their respective dogs, and chat about the building’s lease capacity.We also particularly liked the Google Maps-powered auto-search features to find nearby restaurants, grocery stores, banks, etc. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Tags:#start#startups 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market BuildingBulletins is a charming tool that fosters community within neighborhoods, something that’s decreased greatly in the digital age but seems to be on the upswing with sites and apps such as this one, BrightKite, Foursquare, and their ilk.
