A Tibetan monk, for example, was arrested three days ago after speaking openly in a video and answering a foreign journalist’s questions about the torture he underwent in prison.“The simple fact that the freedom of movement and freedom to interview granted to foreign journalists are not been applied in Tibet shows that a state of exception still exists in the province,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The foreign journalists who have managed to get into Tibet confirm that a heavy military and police presence has imposed a climate of fear for most Tibetans. The news blackout is designed to prevent journalists from carrying out an independent evaluation of the toll from last March’s unrest.”The press freedom organisation added: “We above all urge the Chinese government to allow foreign journalists to travel freely to Tibet. The government must also, as a matter of urgency, release all Tibetans held for expressing their views or for providing information about the situation in the province.”Jigme Guri, a Buddhist monk at Labrang monastery (in Gansu province) was arrested by about 50 police and soldiers on 4 November after recording a video in which he spoke openly about the torture to which he was submitted after being arrested in March. He also answered an Associated Press reporter’s questions in September, explaining how he was hung by his arms and beaten to make him confess to leading the March protests in Labrang. The authorities have not provided any information about him since his second arrest.The Chinese authorities announced on 17 October that rules allowing foreign journalists freedom of movement and freedom to interview would remain in force. But these rules do not apply to the Tibetan region, which the press can only visit after obtaining the agreement of the local authorities. Very few of such permits are given to foreign reporters.In August, Agence France-Presse reporters tried to visit the Tibetan region of Garze, in Sichuan province, where soldiers had opened fire on demonstrators a short while before. They managed to get as far as Kangding, but it proved impossible to continue to Garze. On the instructions of the authorities, all drivers were refusing to take foreigners there. The reporters saw a significant military presence in both the cities and the countryside, and strict police control around Buddhist temples.There are many police controls around Tibet and provinces with a Tibetan population, as well as around the Tibetan capital of Lhasa, where a permit has to be obtained in order to travel to Shigatse or Gyantse.No foreign journalist has been able to cover the trials of Tibetans accused of participating in the March riots. According to a recent statement by a Chinese official, at least 55 people have been given prison sentences.Several foreign journalists have told Reporters Without Borders it has become much harder to work in Tibet since the riots. “Far fewer people dare to talk now,” said a European journalist who went to Tibet in August.” “And investigating what happened in March is an ordeal. You can read the fear on their faces.” Like the other journalists, she travelled to Tibet on tourist visa.“The massive army and police presence and the cameras installed in many parts of the city create a general feeling of mistrust and paranoia,” another European reporter said. “The Tibetans know they are taking a big risk if they talk to a foreigner.”A journalist who recently returned from Lhasa said: “Many of the people living in Lhasa are convinced there are microphones and cameras at street corners, in the shops and in taxis. Everyone is suspected of being an informer so they avoid answering questions. People are less afraid in the rural areas.”She added: “Some monasteries are almost empty. It is easy to see that certain monks and guards are there to keep you under surveillance. They try to prevent direct conversations with foreigners.”Tibetan writer and blogger Woeser also described this climate of fear during a visit to Lhasa in August, before she was arrested and forced to leave Tibet.Although some Internet cafés in Lhasa allow foreigners to visit them, websites such as Facebook are often inaccessible. A Tibet specialist living in France said Tibetan online chat forums are much less active since then March events.It has meanwhile been reported that Ludrup Phuntsok, a 23-year-old monk living at Achog Tsenyi monastery in Ngaba, was sentenced on 28 October to 13 years in prison for helping to edit the book “Mahseng Zhedra.” Three other monks at the same monastery received prison sentences for unknown reasons. Documentary filmmaker Dhondup Wangchen and local TV presenter Washu Rangjong are still being held without trial.

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Utility Dive:Colorado is preparing to boost its use of energy storage, especially since Xcel revamped its energy plan, committing to completely eliminate carbon emissions by 2050, and regulators are beginning to lay out rules to ensure batteries are included in utility planning processes when they acquire supply-side resources. The order approved this week by the PUC codifies the intent of legislation passed earlier in the year.The new rules “establish requirements for a coordinated electric planning process that is to be conducted on a comprehensive, transparent, statewide basis.” The PUC noted in its order that the commission “does not currently treat all electric facilities alike from the perspective of planning or procurement.” The Energy Storage Association in a statement celebrated the PUC’s move, saying the new rules “raise the bar for including energy storage in utility planning.” Following the passage of the underlying legislation, ESA said the commission “took its own momentous step toward leveling the playing field for energy storage and other flexible technologies.” Requiring consideration of energy storage in utility planning processes will be a “critical ingredient to ensuring the greatest savings for ratepayers,” the group said.A previous bill passed by lawmakers directed the PUC to adopt rules governing the installation, interconnection and use of customer-sited energy storage systems, setting some parameters for interconnection reviews.Colorado’s legislature “has made it clear that storage must be considered as an option for cost-effective electric service,” ESA said in a statement.More: Colorado adopts rule to include storage in utility planning Colorado to require utilities to consider storage in long-range resource planslast_img read more

first_imgGREG DIXON/Herald photoA week after losing both its first game and its 11-week stranglehold on the No. 1 ranking, the University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team returned to its winning ways this weekend, beating visiting North Dakota, 6-2 and 7-2 on Friday and Saturday, respectively.The team once again put its offensive depth on display, with eight different players combining on 14 goals. Coach Mark Johnson noted the team is at its best when getting production from different people.“When everybody’s going, everybody’s chipping in and doing their part, it makes it difficult to hold us back,” Johnson said. “It’s always a good sign when a lot of people make contributions.”On Saturday afternoon, the Badgers jumped out to an early lead when junior forward Meghan Duggan created a turnover in the North Dakota zone and fired an unassisted shot in front of the crease past the Fighting Sioux goaltender just 2 1/2 minutes into the game.Later in the period, the Badgers took advantage of errors by the North Dakota power play unit, scoring two shorthanded goals in a less than a minute. First, sophomore center Mallory Deluce received a pass just beyond mid-ice and broke away from the defense to give Wisconsin a 2-0 lead. Duggan and sophomore defenseman Olivia Jakiel registered the assists.During the same shorthanded situation, junior forward Kyla Sanders intercepted the puck at center ice and skated in for a second breakaway goal. Sanders attributed the shorthanded success to an offensive mindset.“I think we did really well on the penalty kill because we’re so aggressive,” Sanders said. “We just get the puck up quick and our forwards are just flying down, and we got a couple breakaways. … It was nice that the puck both times was right in the middle.”In the second period, after North Dakota scored to cut the margin to two, junior forward Jasmine Giles maneuvered around a defender along the left boards and found the net’s upper right corner on a slap shot from the left circle. Less than 50 seconds later, Duggan took a pass from Jakiel and left it in between the circles for freshman forward Carolyne Prevost, who scored her 11th goal of the year. Johnson was impressed with the team’s response to having its lead threatened.“[North Dakota] had a little bit of energy the next shift, and all of a sudden, same type of thing with the shorthanders in the first period, we went bang-bang,” Johnson said. “All of a sudden it goes from 3-1 to 5-1 in a short period of time — kind of deflates the other team.”In the final stanza, senior forward Angie Keseley netted her 12th goal of the season on an assist from freshman center Brooke Ammerman, and junior Emily Kranz scored her first goal of the year, on helpers from Sanders and Giles, to put the game out of reach.Friday night the team got out to an even quicker start when sophomore forward Hilary Knight lit the lamp on the first shift, just 38 seconds into the game. Linemates Keseley and senior center and captain Erika Lawler notched the assists.Later in the period, Prevost corralled a rebound in front of the net and slipped it to the right of the UND goalie. Duggan and Deluce collected assists. Then, with just over a minute to play, Ammerman skillfully sliced around the defense to the left of the net where she centered to Duggan for the third goal of the period.Johnson was pleased with the team’s effort in the early going.“I was looking for some energy today, and obviously when Hilary scores on the first shift that gets you excited,” he said. “Those are the positive things to build on. Coming out after 20 minutes and being up 3-0, that’s what we’re looking for.”Four minutes into the second period, Keseley and Lawler combined to assist on another Knight goal, her national-best 25th of the year. It was also Lawler’s 25th assist, which tops the country. Knight’s next goal will tie her for third place on the Badgers’ all-time single-season goal scoring list.Later in the second, Deluce redirected a power play blast into the net to give UW a comfortable 5-0 advantage. Ammerman and senior defenseman Alycia Matthews recorded assists.In the third, Duggan added her second of the game on Prevost and Deluce assists before the Badgers surrendered two late goals.The weekend’s two victories helped the Badgers’ cleanse their mouths of the taste of a loss — a loss which Jakiel said motivated their performance.“No one likes to lose,” Jakiel said. “No one likes to tie or anything like that. So, I think that kind of gave us inspiration, kind of lit a fire under our butt to get out there and win and play our game.”With its coach back from a leading a gold-medal winning run at the Under-18 World Championships and two resounding victories in their belt, Duggan thinks it’s best the team simply put the Duluth series behind them. “Everyone is kind of hitting us talking about the loss and everything, but I think right now we just have to put that behind us and just look forward on what we have the next couple series,” Duggan said. “So we just have to kind of put that on the back burner and just forget about it and move on and control what we can control from now on.”last_img read more
