They also reinforce the entire society’s mistrust of journalists, whose reporting is nonetheless vital in a country badly affected by violence and corruption.” Amid the growing tension, President Bukele announced on Twitter on 30 September that the government was launching a new TV news programme called El Salvador on the state-owned Canal 10 channel. Promoted by no less a person than the president, the new programme began being broadcast on 5 October. April 11, 2020 Find out more As well as the leading newspapers critical of the government, the El Salvador Journalists’ Association (APES) has also been the target of many attacks by the president and his supporters since the start of the year, especially on social media. One of Latin America’s leading practitioners of investigative journalism and an outspoken critic of the government, El Faro reported on 3 September that the authorities were negotiating with Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13), a criminal gang with 17,000 members, to get a reduction in the number of murders in El Salvador in return for better prison conditions for jailed members and votes for the president’s party, Nueva Ideas, which is run by a member of his family. June 12, 2020 Find out more Salvadorean authorities must not obstruct coronavirus coverage According to the president’s office, it will provide the government with “its own window, its own voice.” In other words, it will broadcast “propaganda financed with public funds,” said Edison Lanza, the special rapporteur for freedom of expression of the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, an Organization of American States offshoot. During the first half of 2020, RSF reported that the Salvadorean media were having difficulty covering the Covid-19 crisis, in large part because of a lack of government transparency. News During a press conference livestreamed on Facebook on 24 September, President Bukele accused the country’s leading online media outlets, El Faro, Revista Factum and Gato Encerrado, and the newspapers La Prensa Gráfica and El Diario de Hoy of lying, attacking the government and waging an orchestrated political campaign ahead of next year’s legislative elections. October 7, 2020 Salvadorean president’s alarming hostility towards independent media El Salvador is ranked 74th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. Although he claims to defend media freedom and, during the 24 September press conference, again promised to “guarantee freedom of expression 100% and freedom of the press to the utmost,” Bukele often adopts an aggressive stance towards the media and blocks many journalists on social media. And without providing any supporting information or evidence, Bukele also announced that El Faro was being investigated for money laundering. The newspaper responded that it was completely unaware of the existence of any such investigation and had received no notification from the judicial authorities. In July, El Faro began being subjected to a finance ministry audit that is marred by many irregularities, according to the newspaper’s editor, José Luis Sanz. News July 25, 2019 Find out more “President Bukele’s repeated attacks and threats against journalists critical of his administration signal an extremely worrying shift towards authoritarianism,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. News Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is very worried by the increasingly hostile environment for reporters in El Salvador, especially by President Nayib Bukele’s recent attacks and threats against critical and independent media, and calls on the authorities to stop denigrating journalism. Receive email alerts Bukele has denied the report but the judicial authorities opened a formal investigation on 7 September to determine whether the government really has maintained relations with the gang. source: ARVIN RECINOS / AFP Follow the news on El Salvador El Salvador: Online attacks and threats against Salvadorean investigative news site News
“I don’t pretend I’m interested. I am interested. It’s important to know who you are working with and it’s important to know why somebody is determined and motivated. “I think I need to know them. That’s what creates a relationship. They can talk to me and it’s always important.” Klopp is liked by his players because of that empathetic side to his personality and his methods have created a united mentality at Anfield. His honest approach is a bid to foster accountability among his players. The results have been impressive, with Liverpool establishing a 25-point lead in the Premier League that had taken them to the brink of a first English title for 30 years prior to the virus suspension. They also won last season’s Champions League and reached the final of Europe’s elite cub competition the season before that. “I’m always 100 per cent honest, I don’t tell always the truth, but that’s different…that means I don’t speak. If you ask me, I would be one hundred per cent honest,” Klopp said. Loading… Jurgen Klopp says his ability to build close relationships with his Liverpool players has been the secret to their success during his reign. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp joked that he thinks about his players in his sleep Although the Premier League season is currently delayed until at least April 30 due to the coronavirus, Reds boss Klopp is in constant contact with his squad via the players’ WhatsApp group. That personal touch is part of a hands-on approach Klopp believes is essential to understanding what makes his players tick. The German obsesses over every detail of their lives so he can get the best out of them on the pitch, joking he probably even thinks about them in his sleep. “Apart from sleeping, I think the whole day – in fact probably when I am sleeping – about these boys. I don’t want to, it just happens because there is so much information you have,” Klopp, speaking before the current suspension was enforced, told JD’s In The Duffle Bag podcast series. “For me the most important thing is for the player to be in his best shape in the moment when it counts and we try to do that with nutrition, training and tactics. “But then there is a time when they go home and there is still a situation. That is normal life but it all influences performance. Read Also: Liverpool star Mane donates £41,000 to fight coronavirus“I never lied to a player, that doesn’t work. If I say ‘You have a chance if you do this and that’, then you have a chance if you do this and that.“But I have to remind myself these are the moments when you can lose a player or lose a team if you say something and don’t stick to it.“It is really possible you lose the whole dressing room but it’s never happened to me because I don’t do that. I try to not do things which make me feel better.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content8 Superfoods For Growing Hair Back And Stimulating Its Growth7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme ParksA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?7 Famous And Incredibly Unique Places In ThailandA Guy Turns Gray Walls And Simple Bricks Into Works Of Art10 Largest Cities In The World20 Completely Unexpected Facts About ‘The Big Bang Theory’
INDIANAPOLIS — The Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles just launched a website that allows customers to determine if they are eligible for an Excise Tax refund.The agency announced in October that it began sending out notifications for eligible customers.“All of those letters have been mailed. In case someone did not receive their letter, the BMV has created a website that allows Hoosiers to verify their eligibility and print a claim form that includes mailing instructions,” said BMV commissioner Don Snemis.BMV officials ask customers to access the refund eligibility page by visiting mybmv.com and clicking on the green “Check Your Excise Tax Refund Eligibility” icon on the right-hand side of the home page.Users will enter either their social security number or their driver’s license number.The refund is due to a miscalculation that affects approximately 180,000 people and totals upwards of $29 million.

Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce recently released Hard Times, a report on the link between college majors, unemployment rates and earnings, concluding that not all college degrees create equal opportunities after graduation.Though recent college graduates have a 9 percent unemployment rate, the study found some majors offer considerably better employment prospects than others.Statistics from recent college graduates show education, health care, business and professional services industries yield the lowest unemployment rates, whereas unemployment is highest in architecture, humanities and liberal arts majors.Carl Martellino, executive director and associate dean of the Career Center, said this study does not change the way the Career Center advises students because the economy is always changing.“The economy goes up and down, and each [major] gets its turn,” Martellino said. “That statement regarding high unemployment rates for architecture majors may change a year from now, so it’s hard to pick one major and look at economy at one point in time.”Martellino said students’ anxieties about job security is not new, and the important thing for students to focus on now is getting job experience as soon as possible through internships.“What is important are internships, where students take their experience from the classroom and gain writing, analytical and critical thinking skills,” Martellino said.Lori Shreve Blake, director of Alumni Career Services, said this information should not change what students should consider when choosing their major, although it should encourage them to further research their interests.“For students struggling with their major, we [first] ask what their interests are and then give them information and research guides to look into different industries,” Blake said.Blake suggests Hoover’s Online Vault, which provides detailed descriptions of corporations. Students can access it through ConnectSC, the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook and USC’s net dictionary.“Students need to research the profession and talk to the alumni who are in those jobs, and the Trojan Network database has more than 8,000 alumni who are willing to talk with students about careers,” Blake said.Some students, however, still feel anxiety about entering the job market after graduation.Myrna Ayoub, a senior majoring in architecture, which has a 13.9 percent unemployment rate, credits USC with teaching her technical skills and helping her get internships every summer. On the other hand, she said she is not sure if she will be employed when she leaves college.“I feel prepared, but the economy is not prepared to take all of us,” Ayoub said. “We have all the tools, but there aren’t enough jobs to support everyone coming out.”Vidal Woods, a freshman majoring in international relations, which has a 4.8 percent unemployment rate, said he worries about whether he will get a job that is high-paying enough after graduation.“USC offers plenty of opportunities to students for internships and connections with people in the work force,” Woods said. “What I would be worried about is salary — not will I get a job, but will I make enough money to survive on my own.”Other students said they are confident about with their ability to get a job given their choice of major.Catherine Barth, a sophomore majoring in kinesiology, which has a 1.8 percent unemployment rate, said she chose her major because health workers are always needed, and she feels secure because USC has connections with local hospitals.“As a pre-health major, I feel really secure,” Barth said. “The reason why I chose USC was because it is so connected with this area in [Los Angeles], such as the Los Angeles Hospital.”Barth said she thinks she will have job opportunities when she graduates.“USC has prepared me coming out of college with job opportunities and connections,” Barth said. “USC has the most competitive programs in the nation and going out into the real world, students are recognized for being a pre-med major at USC — employers recognize the name.”Despite the new information regarding majors, Blake said employers are now looking to hire more than ever, and they are coming to USC to seek future employees.“The economy is getting better and USC is the university of choice for many companies,” Blake said. “Companies come unsolicited to us and they come for one reason: because we are USC.”
