Italy UN rights expert voices concern over changes to criminal procedure code

Special Rapporteur Dato’ Param Cumaraswamy wrote to the Italian Minister for Foreign Affairs late last week to call attention to potential delays in justice caused by the proposed changes, the UN announced today.Under the amended Code of Criminal Procedure, trials could be transferred to a different court on the basis of “legitimate suspicions” that a case could be compromised by serious local circumstances. The Special Rapporteur warned that these changes could add to the long delays that already characterize the Italian judicial system, and could be used by accused persons to further delay trial proceedings.Mr. Cumaraswamy, who visited Italy earlier this year, said he feared that if the changes were adopted and applied retrospectively – a proposal under consideration – then prominent politicians facing charges before Milan courts could take advantage of the amendment to further delay due process in their cases.Those politicians, he stressed, “should not be seen as delaying that process.” He added that “because they are in positions of power, delaying the judicial process in their cases would be perceived with suspicion and could be detrimental to the integrity of the justice system.” read more

Column Is the Seanad referendum also about giving the judiciary greater protection

first_imgBURIED DEEP WITHIN the Bill, permitting the Referendum to proceed, that the Oireachtas has passed is the following proposed amendment to Article 35.4 of the Constitution:“35. 4. 1. A judge of the Supreme Court or the High Court shall not be removed from office except for stated misbehaviour or incapacity, and then only upon a resolution passed by Dáil Éireann, supported by not less than two-thirds of the total membership of that House, calling for the removal of the judge.”However, Article 35.4 of the Constitution currently states:“35. 4. 1. A judge of the Supreme Court or the High Court shall not be removed from office except for stated misbehaviour or  incapacity, and then only upon resolutions passed by Dáil  Éireann and by Seanad Éireann calling for his removal.”We have been led to believe that the Referendum is about the abolition of the Seanad. So why does the proposed new Article 35.4.1, as well as removing the reference to the Seanad, have the new requirement that a resolution to remove a judge be ‘supported by not less than two-thirds of the total membership of that House’? Is the referendum also about giving additional protection from sanction to our judiciary as well as the abolition of the Seanad? Clearly it is about both issues as the wording of the amendment to Article 35.4.1 shows.Article 35.4 used as a background factorAs in now stands under the Constitution a simple majority is what is required in order for the Oireachtas to remove a judge from office for ‘stated misbehaviour or incapacity’. The Oireachtas (Dáil and Seanad) has never voted to remove a judge from office since the passing of the 1937 Constitution, or since the founding of the State. However, there have been two occasions when the use of Article 35.4 was a consideration or a background factor.The first was when the Oireachtas investigated the acquittal of Circuit Court Judge Brian Curtin The second was in connection with the Philip Sheedy affair when High Court Judge Cyril Kelly resigned.The Constitution contains the three elements involved in the democratic principle of  ‘the separation of powers’ – the Oireachtas, the Cabinet, and the Judiciary. Article 35.4.1 is one of the very important and necessary checks and balances that constrain the actions of these three separate elements. These checks and balances are very important for the functioning of a democracy such as ours.Many would argue that at present, contrary to what the Constitution envisaged, the very strict application of the whip system by all out political parties has turned the Dáil into a meaningless debating forum with the executive, in the form of the Cabinet, becoming far too powerful as a result.Fundamental changesA simple majority of 84 TDs out of the complement of 166, under Article 35.4 of the Constitution, is what is currently required for removal of a judge. Governments in our governments usually have small majorities (apart from the current coalition government) and so the simple majority required at present would be sufficient to allow the Oireachtas remove a judge from office. This will change fundamentally if the Referendum to abolish the Seanad is passed – 111 TDs will then be required to vote in favour of a resolution to remove a judge.This, in turn, will mean that the government of the day – usually having only a small majority – will need the support of an opposition party or parties in order to pass a resolution in the Oireachtas for the removal of a judge from office. This may allow a judge, at risk of impeachment, to engage in political lobbying against her/his removal from officeMaking the removal of judges even more difficult?This represents a fundamental change in the current balance of power with yet more power being removed from the Oireachtas (already no more than a debating society because of the strict whip system) as a result of making removal of a judge from office even more difficult.This shift in the balance of the separation of powers is unwarranted. Whatever about the effectiveness of, or the need for, the Seanad, I would be much more concerned about giving any protection from sanction to the judiciary that they currently have. Therefore I will be voting NO for this reason alone.This proposed change to Article 35.4.1 has not entered the public debate about the abolition of the Seanad. The public needs to consider very carefully this aspect of the proposed change to the Constitution. This referendum is about much more than simply abolishing the Seanad.Gerry Fahey is an Occupational Psychologist and a graduate of TCD and the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign.last_img read more

The New SpiderMan Homecoming Trailer Has a Lot of Iron Man in

first_imgSpider-Man is finally coming home (see what they did there?) to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the studio wants yo to know it. A new trailer appeared this morning that does everything in its power to distance itself from the cinematic Spider-Men that came before. How? Tony Stark is in this trailer nearly as much as Peter Parker. Tony appears to be taking on a surrogate father figure role in Peter’s life. He’s made all kinds of new Spider-gadgets for him. They look cool, even if it’s still not immediately clear what all of them do. Stark is guiding the boy through his early days of superheroism, which is an interesting addition to the mythology. Maybe this younger version of Peter Parker needs something more than Uncle Ben’s death to hammer home the power and responsibility thing.Of all the attempts to reboot Spider-Man over the years, this is shaping up to be the most promising attempt since the Tobey Maguire movies came out 15 years ago. While this one won’t have Sam Raimi’s campy cartoonishness like the first two Spider-Man movies did, there’s a lot to like here. This Peter’s desire to join the Avengers mirrors the character’s constant begging to be allowed into the Fantastic Four in the early days of the comics. Reed Richards was about as much in favor of the idea as Tony is here.We also get a good look at Michael Keaton as The Vulture, an aging inventor with a grudge against Tony Stark. He and his gang start terrorizing the city with advanced high-tech weaponry and don’t appear to appreciate whatever Staten Island Ferry heist their committing being interrupted by a teenager in pajamas. That shot of Spider-man holding the ferry together looks simultaneously like a cool action set piece and an attempt to one-up the above-ground Manhattan subway scene from Spider-Man 2. Hey, at least the Staten Island Ferry actually exists.No footage yet of whether or not there will be a romantic subplot. We all know there probably will be, but it’s doesn’t appear to be given as much weight as in previous movies. There’s enough going on here that this doesn’t need to be a grand romantic epic. Peter’s relationship with his best friend gives the trailer a fun teenage feel that reminds you how unprepared for superhero life he really is. And I have to admit the “Spider-Man from YouTube” line is pretty funny.Nothing will ever replace the Sam Raimi movies in my heart (yes, even the third one a little bit), but this movie looks to be off to a decent start. It’s capturing the fun, playful side of Spider-Man that made me love the hero in the first place. That’s more than certain other adaptations have done.last_img read more

Who will be our Rachel now Progressives reflect on movement without Held

first_imgEmily McFarlan Miller emmillerwrites By: Emily McFarlan Miller emmillerwrites Tagshomepage featured progressive Christianity Rachel Held Evans Top Story,You may also like News • Photos of the Week Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — When the Rev. Emmy Kegler heard her friend Rachel Held Evans had died earlier this month after a sudden illness, she offered a prayer.Then Kegler got together with other friends who had known Evans, a popular progressive Christian writer and speaker, to share their memories and process their grief.As she walked to her car afterward, she wondered what the future would hold. Who would fill the void their friend had left behind?“Who is going to be our Rachel now?” she asked.Kegler isn’t the only one asking.Since Evans’ untimely death on May 4 at age 37, her readers and friends have shared stories of her impact and her kindnesses toward them online — sparking renewed interest in her work and putting her 2015 book “Searching for Sunday” on this past weekend’s New York Times bestseller list.Diana Butler Bass. Courtesy photoAlong with them, progressive Christian scholars are also considering Evans’ legacy and what’s next for their movement without one of its most prominent and beloved leaders.It’s the same universal question people ask any time “people who have brave and strong voices who emerge as leaders” die, according to Diana Butler Bass, an independent scholar specializing in American religion and culture.“When they pass away, the people who look to them for guidance have always asked that same question: ‘What should we do now? To whom do we now turn?’” Bass said.Evans was raised in a nondenominational, evangelical Christian family in Dayton, Tenn., where — as a student at Bryan College, a center of fundamentalism — she began asking tough questions about her faith.She brought her sense of humor to those questions in her writing, including a popular blog, lively social media presence and bestselling books like 2012’s “A Year of Biblical Womanhood,” in which she took the Bible’s instructions for women as literally as possible and introduced readers to Amish, Jewish and egalitarian beliefs.Rachel Held Evans prepared homemade matzoh toffee for Passover during her bid to live biblically for a year. Courtesy photoLater, she abandoned the “evangelical” label, worshiping at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Cleveland, Tenn.In mid-April, the 37-year-old writer and speaker tweeted she was hospitalized with the flu, an infection and an allergic reaction to medication. While there, she began experiencing constant seizures and later swelling in her brain.She was placed in a medically induced coma and never awoke.Evans leaves behind her husband, Dan, and two young children. For her family in East Tennessee, there is nobody who can replace Rachel, Bass noted.Her admirers should resist the urge to look for another leader to take her place, too, she said.“For people who are saying, ‘What’s next?’ — what’s next is the exact same thing it always is,” Bass said. “It’s gird your loins, go to work. And that’s what’s next — you’re next.”Losing one of the lights of progressive Christianity won’t dim the movement, according to the scholar.“I am so confident that Rachel’s voice will continue through the unique voices of the many people she inspired,” she said.“I think it will be lovely, actually, and probably very brave, and Rachel would be proud of them.”Many who often disagreed with Evans also have reflected over the past few weeks on what they’ve learned from their interactions and the legacy she leaves.“Rachel Held Evans stirred the evangelical pot in ways that were uncomfortable and distressing,” wrote Ed Stetzer, executive director of the Billy Graham Center.“However, for me, she made me think and she made me better. She pointed out my logical fallacies and forced me to defend my assumptions. And when she appreciated something, she said it. She was always looking for the good in people, and didn’t hold back when she found it.”Author Rachel Held Evans speaks at a church in early 2015. Video screenshotBut the outpouring of grief and remembrances after Evans’ death hasn’t been without pushback, said Anthea Butler, associate professor of religious studies and Africana studies at the University of Pennsylvania.Some of her critics have seized the moment to discuss their theological disagreements with the late author, Butler said.Some of them may be jealous that she built a bigger platform than they have, she said.Some may see her work as a threat to conservative Christianity when Evans’ faith championed the role of women — including clergywomen — and the inclusion of LGBTQ Christians in the life of the church.Anthea Butler. Courtesy photo“The reality is that they’re just mad because… she had a ministry, and they want women to be quiet, and they don’t like it when women aren’t quiet, and they don’t like it when women aren’t ‘submissive,’” Butler said.Not only did Evans bypass the gatekeepers of Christianity, Butler said, she also held open the gate for others.The professor only sees progressive Christianity growing as people reflect on what Evans’ work meant to them and how they can continue it.Her death might embolden some to ask questions about their own beliefs or to leave spaces that had been comfortable, she said.And Evans’ work will live on. Her last book, “Wholehearted Faith,” is set for release in October 2020.A lot of black women in particular are devastated by her death, Butler said.That’s because she shared her platform with black female writers and preachers and speakers, not only in her writing but also at the conferences she co-founded, Why Christian? and Evolving Faith.“Rachel Held Evans was somebody that you felt like you could reach out to because she was working through so much stuff,” Butler said. “She was a warm, friendly white face who didn’t talk to you like you don’t know anything,” she said.Author Rachel Held Evans. Courtesy photoMany readers felt that way about Evans, said writer and theologian Brian McLaren. She was asking the same questions about Christianity that they were and showing them that was OK.“What was so beautiful about Rachel is that she was honest about her ongoing journey. Her books were kind of like bread crumbs she was dropping along the way to show people where she was going,” McLaren said.What made her unique was that she never gave up on God, he said.Rev. Emmy Kegler. Courtesy photoThe greatest part of her legacy will be the people who haven’t given up, either, because of her — who will continue to speak up because she paved the way, according to the theologian.For Kegler, the answer to her question — “Who is going to be our Rachel now?” — came quickly.She isn’t sure if it was intuition or something divine, but she heard it as clear as a bell: “All of you.”“Rachel wasn’t trying to make more Rachels,” said Kegler, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church in Minneapolis and founder and editor of Queer Grace.“She was trying to make all of us more ourselves and just to do that to the best of our abilities and to follow God’s call for each of us in such diverse and beautiful ways.” Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.,Study: It’s easier to be a ‘none’ in Canada than in the US Texas church opens new sanctuary 18 months after massacre Photos of the Week August 30, 2019 Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,About the authorView All Posts News Instagram apostasy stirs controversy over Christian ‘influencers’ August 30, 2019 Emily McFarlan Miller Emily McFarlan Miller is a national reporter for RNS based in Chicago.

Amazons Warehouse Robots Wont Replace Humans for at Least a Decade

first_img Are you worried your job is going to be taken by a robot? You needn’t be if you work for Amazon, which has dismissed the idea of fully-automated warehouses becoming a reality any time soon. According to Amazon’s director of robotics fulfilment, Scott Anderson, such technology in its current form is “very limited.”In a tour of Amazon’s Balitmore warehouse for reporters on Tuesday, Anderson said that while the company is exploring a variety of automation technologies, there’s a misperception that the company will be replacing human workers with robots in the near future. However, it is on the agenda, with Anderson giving a timeline of “at least 10 years” before warehouses become fully automated — a measured approach at odds with the likes of Tesla, which recently scaled back its automation citing “overconfidence” in the technology, and noting that production benefits from having more humans at hand.At present, the Amazon warehouses that use robots are mostly concerned with general merchandise such as homewares and bikes, but their functions are limited. Robots are unable to pick items from bins without damaging other items, or pick multiple items, in a way that makes them any more efficient than human workers.Plus, there’s no scope yet for robot workers in Amazon’s food division. As global director of environment, health and safety Derek Jones explained, “Just imagine if you want bananas, I want my bananas to be firm, others like their bananas to be ripe. How do you get a robot to choose that?”However, Amazon has repeatedly come under fire for poor working conditions and demanding targets. Last month the company announced plans to deliver Prime packages in one day instead of two, and currently stipulates a target of four hours between an order being placed and it leaving the warehouse. Once the technology exists to effectively automate these processes, there’s no doubt that Amazon will be using it.

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling (Photo by: Adam Green) Shipley knows he still has to beat out Earl Watford, who has impressed Arians in his limited snaps at the position. He also knows the Cardinals drafted rookie Evan Boehm out of Missouri to be their center of the future.“I’m not going to shun the kid,” he said. “I’m going to bring him along just as I was brought along.”All the same, Shipley believes his diversity of experiences and positions have given him a better understanding of the game and his place in it. He is also grateful for the opportunity Arians has laid before him.“It’s awesome,” he said. “It’s good that they have that faith in me. You play the game to show the coaches and prove to the coaches that you deserve an opportunity to play.”Shipley added that if he does earn the starting role, he’d bring a “junkyard dog” approach to the job and a lighthearted approach to the huddle and locker room — one that once led him to dress up as Santa Claus for a Penn State holiday party.“You always have to be a little bit of a different guy off the field or you’ll wind up in jail,” he said, laughing “We had a lot of fun in college being idiots, and I still like to have fun.” Shipley’s NFL career has been a Homeric Odyssey of perseverance. Following his senior season at Penn State, he was a consensus first team All-Big Ten selection, the conference’s offensive lineman of the year, an All-American and he won the Rimington Trophy, awarded annually to the best center in college football.“I had as decorated a college career as you can probably have,” he said.He also did everything he could to impress teams at the NFL Scouting Combine. He bench-pressed 33 reps of 225 pounds (fifth best among offensive linemen) and posted a 31-inch vertical jump (eighth). He ran a 7.46 in the 3-cone drill and a 4.40 in the 20-yard shuttle (second and fifth, respectively), and he scored a 40 on the Wonderlic Test, which was double the average score for NFL draft prospects.Despite those accolades, Shipley didn’t hear his name called until the seventh and final round of the 2009 NFL Draft when the Pittsburgh Steelers selected him with the 226th pick. He signed a three-year deal with the Steelers in June of 2009, but he was waived three months later and spent the next two seasons on the Steelers’ and Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squads. “I kept thinking, ‘man, what am I doing wrong here?’” he said.In the eight years since he was drafted, Shipley, 30, has been released five times, played for five different NFL teams and played center, left guard and fullback. The book on Shipley is that, at 6-foot-1, he lacks the height and his arms are too short to maintain contact with tackles on the move, which lets his man shed or get past him.“I’ve dealt with that [criticism] for a long time,” he explained. “I haven’t grown much since I was 18. I’ve played against the best in college and I’ve played against the best in the pros. It’s really never hindered me, or been a huge deterrent to what I can do.”Arians has always professed a fondness for players in Shipley’s plight.“It’s not a soft spot, it’s a level of respect,” Arians said. “I respect those guys that overcome some limitations with smarts and toughness.”Shipley won Arians’ heart in Indianapolis in 2012, Shipley’s first NFL season on an active roster.“I go all the way back to [the] Detroit [game],” Arians said. “Our right guard got hurt, he goes in and he blocks Ndamukong Suh for a quarter and a half and we win the game and all we’re doing is throwing the ball.” 0 Comments   Share   The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Arians noted that Shipley played the entire game at center for the Cardinals last season against Philadelphia, with starter Lyle Sendlein injured. The Cardinals ran for a season-high 230 yards and three touchdowns on 39 rushes.“Everybody says he can’t do it, but I’ve been watching him overachieve for a long time,” Arians added. “When you’re smart and tough, you’ve got half the battle won in this league. He’s been in this system a long time. He’s not going to make a wrong call or re-identify a front the wrong way for [QB] Carson [Palmer]. I’m very comfortable with him handling everything.”Shipley had other offers in the summer of 2015, but he signed a two-year deal with the Cardinals based on his relationship with Arians and offensive coordinator Harold Goodwin, who was with Arians in Indianapolis and Pittsburgh.Initially, Shipley thought he might be the starter last season, but the Cardinals re-signed Sendlein on a reduced salary after releasing him, so Shipley had to wait another year.“Was I disappointed when it happened? Absolutely,” Shipley said. “Any competitor would be, but it wasn’t a big blow to my confidence, and at the end of the day, Lyle and I became the best of friends. I learned a lot from him.” Follow Craig Morgan on Twitter – / 22 Top Stories GLENDALE, Ariz. — Cardinals center A.Q. Shipley heard something on Friday that he’s never heard in his eight-year NFL career. Coach Bruce Arians proclaimed the starting role, “A.Q.’s job to lose.”“It’s almost harder in this position, because now you know what they expect from you,” Shipley said, smiling. “I’ve always had to battle.

Australia AP The tourists who have lost their last nine Tests in Australia refused to buckle despite the loss of key batsmen Younis Khan Azhar Ali and skipper Misbah-ul-Haq At the close on a storm-hit day with Shafiq leading the way Pakistan had just two wickets left and were 382 for eight – the highest fourth innings in a Test at the Gabba They trail the home side by 107 heading into Monday’s

whereas Pellegrini 62 has only three months left in the City saddle before handing the reins to Pep Guardiola City are the favourites but former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has claimed that the nous Klopp demonstrated by leading Borussia Dortmund to five trophies will give the underdogs the edge at Wembley Responding to Gerrard’s prediction made in the Daily Telegraph Klopp said: "I am not sure I am the difference but I know the way There is absolutely no reason at this moment to have a doubt "I have to show it as clear as possible so there is no misunderstanding between my mouth and the ears of the players Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini Getty "We do this job in professional football We only want to win things: titles cups whatever "A lot

League Liverpool’s hopes of Champions League qualification are fading and they were recently eliminated from the FA Cup by West Ham United They will face Manchester United in a tantalising last-16 Europa League tie but it is Sunday’s game that offers Klopp the best chance to make a mark in his maiden campaign With eight trophies Liverpool are the League Cup’s most successful club but they have not procured any silverware since they last won the tournament in 2012 Klopp’s tenure to date has been a tale of feast and famine with dreary displays interspersed by stunning results such as slick away wins at City and Chelsea a breathless 5-4 victory at Norwich City and six-goal thrashings of both Southampton and Aston Villa Big guns return Liverpool won 4-1 at the Etihad Stadium in November

albeit with a game in hand French left-back Gael Clichy knows that Sunday’s game represents a golden opportunity to give Pellegrini a fitting send-off "We have been together for three years now and we have to live in the present — and the present is with Manuel Pellegrini" Clichy said "I think for this game he will be exactly the same He will want us to play the way we want to play With the quality

rules of the game in modern India are very simple even if the structure it creates is a horribly tangled maze In this country it is okay to do practically anything: use fake promoters accept bribes commission murders intimidate media manipulate courts and grab power The one big rule: don’t get caught This book is about the reality every citizen and all visitors experience in myriad ways For years I struggled to find a structure to write about that India and even this narrative remains an incomplete rendition of a complex web Every individual in that web has a stake in the perpetuation of the system and each one of them contributes to denying poor access to instruments of democracy The courts in the world’s largest democracy are crowded and expensive the police corrupt and cruel the

very pleasant afternoon That didn’t help put my companion at his ease though Until recently an employee of a Hindi news channel he had just taken up a well-paying new assignment as the spokesperson of

Progressive Alliance (UPA) government led by Dr Manmohan Singh was lurching from controversy to controversy It was 2011 and the government still had three years to go but there was a heavy sense of hopelessness in the air In a few months the country would witness a huge eruption of anger against corruption through protests in various cities The billionaire’s spokesperson had taken a two-hour flight from Mumbai India’s commercial capital that morning to meet me Only days earlier his boss’s lawyers had served me and my newspaper a criminal defamation notice after I reported that he was directly in contact with the criminal underworld We responded to the legal notice saying we were in possession of official documents to prove our claims and would produce them in the appropriate legal forum Our calm reply appeared to have prompted the business magnate to change strategy The PR manager started with a profuse apology on behalf of his boss ‘It was a mistake The boss had in fact told his legal team not to send you the notice’ the young man said Both of us knew it wasn’t a mistake but the standard operating procedure of India’s rich and famous when an article critical of them

equally trigger-happy when it came to defamation notices When I reported on a member of parliament (MP) who abruptly left a parliamentary committee meeting on serious security matters which he was chairing he sent across a notice accusing me of breaching his parliamentary privilege The protection of shaky reputations is a flourishing industry There are PR consultants whose brief is to alert the rich and famous about any possible adverse reports brewing against them in newsrooms There are lawyers drafting defamation notices and then there are those who manage the situation if nothing else works All of them make a killing out of the potential embarrassment of a famous client As we settled down after the apology the spokesperson said ‘He wanted me to request you not to write anything more about his links because our efforts to raise FDI (foreign direct investment) have suffered a huge setback due to your article’ Their company – which had manipulated its way to procuring the licence and radio spectrum to operate second-generation mobile networks and was facing a criminal investigation – was in the market to raise about Rs 3000 crore from an investor in the Arab world The
