News Receive email alerts ZimbabweAfrica Zimbabwean journalist Hopewell Chin’ono denied bail Help by sharing this information Reports ZimbabweAfrica Zimbabwean court must free imprisoned journalist who is unwell The authorities in Zimbabwe continue to flout the right to news and information, Reporters Without Borders said today. Compounding a recent ban on opposition access to the state media, parliament has now passed an amendment to the already extremely repressive Access to Information and Protection of Privacy Act (AIPPA).Proposed by President Mugabe’s right-hand man, information minister Jonathan Moyo, the amendment provides for a sentence of up to two years in prison or a fine for any journalist who tries to work without being accredited with the government’s Media and Information Commission (MIC).”The all-out censorship imposed by the Mugabe regime shows no sign of stopping,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This amendment will facilitate the imprisonment of intractable journalists and is further evidence of the government’s opposition to freedom and democracy.”Accusing Zimbabwe of caring nothing about the commitments it has given to its partners in southern Africa, Reporters Without Borders said, “we once again urgently call on South Africa to demand an explanation from Harare.”Passed with the votes of the ruling Zanu-PF party and condemned by the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC), the amendment reinforces the absolute power which the Media and Information Commission now exercises over journalists and the news media. All of the commission’s members are appointed by the government.

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, left, talks with former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly before an NFL football game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Buffalo Bills, Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013, in Pittsburgh. (AP Photo/Gene J. Puskar)PITTSBURGH (AP) – Ben Roethlisberger isn’t going anywhere. Not if he has anything to say about it.The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback called a report he may seek a trade in the offseason “ridiculous.”NFL.com reported early Sunday the Steelers expected Roethlisberger to ask the team to explore trade options in the offseason. Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, called the speculation “completely wrong” and added the 31-year-old quarterback is “100 percent committed to winning a championship with the Steelers.”Roethlisberger went even further after passing for 204 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a 23-10 win over Buffalo on Sunday.“I don’t know where that came from,” he said. “It is one of the most (untrue) stories that I’ve ever heard of. I’ve always said that I want to be a Steeler for life. I love it here. I’m happy here.”The report called Roethlisberger “very frustrated” by his team’s ugly start. The Steelers improved to 3-6 after drumming the Bills, but still remain well out of the mix in the AFC North.Roethlisberger, who has won two Super Bowls in 10 seasons, agreed he’s “unhappy” when Pittsburgh fails to produce, but welcomed his share of the blame. Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley have struggled to communicate at times since Haley was hired nearly two years ago. The quarterback and the coach have spent much of the season trying to find common ground.Steelers president Art Rooney II added “the Pittsburgh Steelers have not explored trading quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and have no plans to do so.”Roethlisberger’s current contract will expire at the end of the 2015 season. He is due a base salary of $12.1 million next season, with a salary cap number of nearly $19 million. That alone would could make it difficult for the Steelers to move Roethlisberger even if there was interest.Apparently, there’s not. Tollner said Roethlisberger’s roots are “firmly” planted in western Pennsylvania. Roethlisberger and his wife are expecting their second child next spring.“I’m a Pittsburgher,” Roethlisberger said. “I’ve told people that. I’m so proud to raise my kids here. I want to finish my career here, however long that is. I don’t want to play for anybody else. This is it for me.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org

Powered by Firework Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan praised Mahmudullah’s captaincy by claiming that it is similar to MS Dhoni’s leadership style.Advertisement Image Courtesy: India TVMahmudullah was appointed as the skipper in the wake of Shakib Al Hasan’s suspension by the ICC and romped on a historic maiden win over the hosts in the first T20I in Delhi. The visitors failed to seal the series after suffering a mighty defeat at Rajkot.Irfan Pathan noted how Mahmudullah used spinners in the powerplay phase and noted that it was a play out of MS Dhoni’s book. On the Nerolac Cricket Live show on Star Sports, Pathan said:Advertisement “When you win a match against one of the best teams in the world, it helps in boosting your confidence and Mahmudullah had shown great qualities of a captain including the changes he made during the match,”“There was a hint of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in his captaincy as he also used part-time bowlers after the power play which is a strategy often used by Dhoni,” Advertisement MS Dhoni, who is known for his calm and elite reading of the game is widely recognized as one of the greatest ever captains. Team India managed to win all of ICC’s major tournaments under his leadership.While the Bangladesh all-rounder showed a slight glimpse, there is still a long way to go in order to make some serious comparisons.Mahmudallah has to get his troop rallied for the series decider which is scheduled to take place in Nagpur.Read Also:Rohit Sharma’s plea to everyone : Please leave Risabh Pant alone!Indian cricket team chill with Air Force pilots ahead of Bangladesh T20 decider Advertisement
Will the Vancouver Canucks become the 2011 Stanley Cup version of the Boston Bruins?Canucks fans will find out Tuesday at the Rogers Centre after Ben Smith scored on a rebound at 15:30 of overtime to power the defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago Blackhawks to a 4-3 victory over Vancouver in game six of the Western Conference series Sunday in the Windy City. The series is tied 3-3 as Chicago rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the best-of-seven series.Smith, a rookie, followed in a long, hard shot from the point by teammate Niklas Hjalmarsson that bounced off goalie Roberto Luongo.Luongo, who didn’t start the game but was called upon in the third period when Cory Schneider had to be helped off the ice when he was injured as he tried to stop Michael Frolik’s penalty shot that tied it at 3-3, had very little work to do in the overtime period as the Canucks pressed for the winner.Daniel Sedin, Alexandre Burrows and Kevin Bieska scored for the Canucks. Bryan Bickell and Dave Bolland added goals for the Blackhawks, who held off Vancouver dominating performance in the third and overtime periods when the Canucks appeared ready to win the game and end the series. NOTES: The goal by Alex Burrows was his first of the series. … Chicago captain Jonathan Toews is still without a goal. … Chicago is attempting to send the Canucks to the golf course for the third consecutive season. …Chicago’s Brent Seabrook, out for two games following a hard shoulder-to-head hit from Raffi Torres in Game 3, was back in the lineup for game six. …Vancouver played without the services of defenceman Sami Salo for most of the game.

OTTAWA – The number of homes sold in September climbed for the second month in a row after a slowdown earlier this year that was led by a cooling in the Toronto market.Canadian Real Estate Association said Friday sales through its Multiple Listing Service in September were up 2.1 per cent compared with the previous month. The increase followed a 1.3 per cent increase in August.TD Bank senior economist Michael Dolega said unlike the gain in August, that was driven by Toronto, the increase for September was more widespread.But he noted rising interest rates and coming regulatory changes, including a potential new stress test for borrowers with uninsured mortgages, could impinge on the housing market.“Having said that, after some near-term weakness, likely to last into mid-2018, activity should begin to rebound thereafter given the fundamentally supported demand related to strong job growth and strengthening wage dynamics,” Dolega wrote in a note to clients.Home sales in Canada had been slowing this year following changes by the Ontario government aimed at cooling the Toronto market. CREA noted that sales in September were down almost 12 per cent from the record set in March before Ontario announced its housing plan.Also weighing on the real estate market has been rising mortgage rates.The Bank of Canada has raised its key interest rate target twice this year, driving the big bank prime rates and the cost of variable-rate mortgages higher. The cost of new fixed-rate mortgages have also risen as yields on the bond market have also risen.Meanwhile, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions is finalizing new lending guidelines. Among the changes being considered is a requirement that homebuyers who do not require mortgage insurance still have to show they can make their payments if interest rates rise.CREA noted that while the September sales results were encouraging, it is too early to tell if it is start of a longer-term trend.“Further tightening of federal regulations aimed at cooling housing markets in Toronto and Vancouver risks creating collateral damage in markets elsewhere in Canada,” CREA chief economist Gregory Klump said.The increase in sales in September was led by gains in Greater Vancouver and Vancouver Island, the Greater Toronto Area, London and St. Thomas, Ont., and Barrie, Ont.Compared with a year ago, sales in September were down 11 per cent as the number of homes sold were down in close to three-quarters of all local markets.The national average price for homes sold in September was just over $487,000, up 2.8 per cent from a year ago. Excluding Greater Vancouver and Greater Toronto, the average price was just over $374,500.
CALGARY – Pembina Pipeline Corp. (TSX: PPL) says its board of directors has approved construction of an export terminal at Prince Rupert, B.C., to be used to send liquefied Western Canadian propane to markets in Asia and Central America.The Calgary-based company says the project on Watson Island is expected to cost about $260 million, up from an estimate of $150 million made last spring, due to minor scope changes, dock maintenance and additional site preparation.Pembina’s facility, which still requires regulatory and environmental approvals, is expected to be in service by mid-2020 and will have a permitted capacity of about 25,000 barrels per day of propane.Meanwhile, construction is underway on a terminal on Ridley Island near Prince Rupert that was green-lighted early this year by Calgary-based AltaGas Ltd. (TSX:ALA).The project, which its builder says will be the first propane export terminal on Canada’s West Coast, is expected to cost $475 million and have capacity of 1.2 million tonnes per year when it opens in 2019.Both facilities are to use rail cars, not pipelines, to transport propane from Alberta and B.C. to their facilities.
