The challenge lay in preserving the traditional mixed-use development of the neighborhood, which has historically brought together private mansion and artisans.

Red alert for green journalism – 10 environmental reporters killed in five years Help by sharing this information August 21, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders deplores today’s arrest of Internet user Suwicha Thakhor on a charge of insulting the monarchy (lese majeste), just one day after Thai Netizen Network, a group that defends online freedom of expression, met with Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and suggested ways to reach a compromise on Internet regulation, including the issue of lese majeste. “This arrest gives the government the opportunity to demonstrate its readiness to maintain a real dialogue by keeping a close watch on the conduct of the investigation,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We urge the government to do everything possible to ensure that Thakhor is released as soon as the authorities establish that he has not done anything that violates democratic norms.” The Department of Special Investigations said Thakhor was arrested because his computer’s Internet address matched the address from which comments about the king and his aides had been sent. He was picked up by the police while visiting friends in the provinces. The authorities say they suspect he knew the police were after him and that he left the capital for this reason. Thakhor, who is being held at Department of Special Investigations headquarters in Bangkok, has denied the charges.

On 11 January, Ungpakorn was ordered to report to a Bangkok police station on 20 January to be charged under the lese majeste law in connection with his book “A Coup for the Rich,” which can be downloaded at no cost from his blog, http://www.wdpress.blog.co.uk.

San Antonio College, image by Richard Quinton.Kari Post saw her debut season as Pasadena City College women’s volleyball head coach conclude Saturday as the No. 17-seeded Lancers were knocked out of the SoCal Regional playoffs by nemesis and 16th seed Mt. San Antonio, 25-15, 25-23, 25-19, in a play-in round road match.The Lancers and Post can look back at a successful turnaround season for the program as the team went from a 5-16 mark last year to 14-9 this season. PCC finished in third place in the South Coast Conference and among its victories was a triumph over the South’s No. 1 seed and state co-No. 1-ranked Santa Barbara City College.“The team we had on the floor v. Mt. SAC was a lot different than the one we had back at that Pierce Tournament,” Post said. “We played without some top players in the playoff, and we had a few others that were not at the level they were playing pre-conference. Still, the effort was there and we had glimpses we belonged as a playoff squad.”PCC played without top all-around hitter Lahiz Longobardi (injury) and starting middle blocker Angela Banuelos, who became ineligible and left the team a few weeks ago.The Lancers led 22-20 in the second set following a kill by Kirsten Cabarong, but Mt. SAC outscored PCC, 5-1, to take a 2-0 sets lead. In the third set, the Mounties jumped ahead 7-1 and the Lancers closed it to 20-18. Again, Mt. SAC went on a 5-1 run and finished its third sweep of Pasadena this season and the second in a span of four days.Mt. SAC (18-5) had four different players reach double digits in kills as Makenzie Thieme led the group with 13. Meanwhile, Lancers middle blocker Kendra Logan was the team’s kills leader with nine (15 attempts) and Cabarong added eight. Setter Monica Hernandez reached a team-high 13 digs and 16 assists, opposite Kayla Howell had 11 digs, defensive specialist/libero Saige Spence totaled eight digs, and outside hitter Rayleen Rivera made five kills. Backup setter Hannah Clarke chipped in seven assists and served two aces in playing just the third set.“You always want to strive to be the best, but there were some great things about this season,” Post said. “We played well against some really good playoff teams like Ventura, San Diego Mesa and Bakersfield, and we beat top-ranked Santa Barbara. If it weren’t for a power failure at conference champ El Camino who knows if we would have built on a 1-0 sets lead there (lost in 4). The big thing for us is we lacked consistency. I think we also did lose some of the confidence we built early in the year during conference.“We made the playoffs and that was a goal for us. I feel we are going to have a good recruiting off-season and build on this year’s success. We want to be a regular conference and playoff contender.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Community News HerbeautyA Mental Health Chatbot Which Helps People With DepressionHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCreative Ways To Burn Calories That Require Little EffortHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyThese Are 15 Great Style Tips From Asian WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWhat’s Your Zodiac Flower Sign?HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyNutritional Strategies To Ease AnxietyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty6 Strong Female TV Characters Who Deserve To Have A SpinoffHerbeautyHerbeauty Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

The Bench of Justice Vivek Agarwal told ASGI Sanjay Kumar Om that his request for virtual hearing cannot be allowed because the Computer Section of the High Court is the “high risk zone” for Covid-19 infection and hence no person from there can be allowed within the Court room/ chambers. “There is a request made from A.S.G.I. for taking the case through video conferencing. This request cannot be entertained in view of the fact that staff of the High Court has already in high risk of Corona infection and this is more prevalent in the Computer Section. No infrastructure is available to carry out Video conferencing in the Chamber,” the Court said. It also mentioned that there is no additional infrastructure in the Chamber to enable a virtual hearing. Therefore, the matter has been listed as fresh for physical hearing on September 30, 2020. The Court said, “Equipment cannot be allowed to be fixed by a person in the high risk zone exposing the judge and the staff of the Court to such infection. Therefore, I am of the view that request for taking the case through Video Conferencing cannot be entertained for the present.” It may be noted that as per the notification for functioning of the High Court, last issued on July 24, 2020: The facility of hearing through Video-Conferencing “shall be provided” on asking by the learned Advocates. If any party desires to appear in person then the only mode would be through video conferencing. Further, the notification provides that Advocates residing in hot spot areas / containment zones “shall not be allowed to enter” in the Court campus. This provision, when read with the present order, creates a conundrum inasmuch as an Advocate, whose case is listed before this Bench and who resides in a containment zone, shall neither be permitted to present his case via video conferencing, nor through physical hearing.
