Guevara was last seen alive on 8 October, a day after he set off on his motorcycle to cover a bikers convention in the neighbouring state of Chihuahua.____________________________________________________________25.10.06 – Website editor becomes second journalist to go missing in northern Mexico since start of the yearReporters Without Borders voiced concern today about the disappearance since 8 October of Guevara Guevara Domínguez, the editor of the US-based weekly Siglo 21’s online version (www.siglo21web.com). He went missing in northern Mexico exactly three months after Rafael Ortiz Martínez of the local daily Zócalo disappeared on 8 July in Monclova, in the northern state of Coahuila.“With two journalists missing and three others killed since the start of this year, the toll of press freedom violations is becoming more and more alarming,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Let us not forget that two other journalists who disappeared in the past three years – Jesús Mejía Lechuga in 2003 and Alfredo Jiménez Mota in 2005 – were never found and none of the murders of journalists since 2000 has so far been solved.”The press freedom organisation added: “We call on the new prosecutor’s office that specialises in attacks on the press to take over this new case even if no link between Guevara’s disappearance and his work as a journalist has yet been clearly established.”Although Guevara, 54, edits the online version of a newspaper based in the Californian city of Oxnard that targets the Hispanic community in the United States, he lives in Guadalajara, in the western state of Jalisco. He set off from there by motorcycle on 7 October heading for Creel, in the northern state of Chihuahua, where he was to cover an international meeting of motorcyclists on 10 October.He was last heard of on the morning of 8 October, when he phoned his girlfriend. His son, Miguel Guevara Valdez, told Reporters Without Borders his father called as he was about to leave the state of Durango and enter the state of Chihuahua. He said his father told him he was currently with a group of bikers, but was about to leave them in order to go his own way.Later that day, Siglo 21 called his family to say it had not received any of the reports he was supposed to send during his trip. An unidentified person called the family on 18 October to say he had been seen 30 km from the border between the states of Durango and Chihuahua. His family said he had not received any threats and did not cover subjects likely to expose him to any danger. A motor vehicle sports enthusiast, he was driving a Yamaha 750 cc motorcycle with the licence plate H757N.

Fencers honored at White House

first_imgAfter representing the United States in this summer’s London Olympics, two Notre Dame students and one alumna were recently given another once-in-a-lifetime experience – this time, stateside. Senior fencers Gerek Meinhardt and Courtney Hurley and Hurley’s sister, 2010 alumna and fencer Kelley Hurley, were invited to the White House to be honored alongside other returning Olympians on Sept. 14. Meinhardt, a member of the fourth-place-finishing men’s team foil, said he was impressed by the welcome the U.S. Olympians and Paralympians received from President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Vice President Joe Biden. “The First Lady, Michelle Obama, gave a speech about how she was in London and led the delegation there,” Meinhardt said. “Then President Obama gave a speech as well about how the Olympics inspired him. It was really nice. The three of them waited and stayed there for an extra hour and shook hands with every single athlete – every Olympian and Paralympian that was there – which was about 500 of us.” Meinhardt said Obama was personable and welcoming. “He was very laid-back and really friendly with us. He seemed really humble,” Meinhardt said. “He was really, really cool, and he definitely tried to make us all feel special.” Courtney, who earned a bronze medal as part of the women’s team epee, said she was anxious prior to meeting the Commander-in-Chief. “I was very happy and nervous,” Hurley said. “I couldn’t get any words out of my mouth because I was so nervous. Biden was a little less intimidating, and Michelle gave us a hug, which was nice.” Meinhardt said Obama expressed his gratitude for the students’ dedication to honoring America in the Games. “I said it was an honor to meet him, and he said congratulations and that they appreciated us representing the U.S.,” Meinhardt said. Courtney also had the rare opportunity to meet fellow Olympian Michael Phelps at the event. “I did meet Phelps,” she said. “But to be honest, I wasn’t even interested compared to Obama. I was like, ‘Move out of the way. I’ve got to meet Obama.’” After the meet and greet held on the Great Lawn, Meinhardt said the Olympians and Paralympians were offered a tour of the White House interior. “We were able to walk through a short tour of some of the White House rooms, like the big library that they have,” he said. Meinhardt said she will never forget the opportunity. “It was a really short trip, but they were really accommodating with us,” he said. “It was a great experience, and it was really nice that the Olympic Committee and obviously the White House were able to organize something like that for us.”last_img read more

Dodgers suffer letdown in Atlanta, lose 8-1 to Atlanta Braves

first_imgBraves starter Williams Perez was a last-minute replacement for the scheduled starter, Julio Teheran, who fell ill. Perez (career earned-run average 4.94) took a no-hitter into the fourth inning. He gave up two hits and wasn’t charged with a run in 3 1/3 innings. ATLANTA >> The circumstances were suspiciously rife for a major letdown Tuesday, and Dave Roberts knew it. It bothered the Dodgers manager enough that he told his players to be careful.“When you’re playing coming off a series against the Giants — a big series at home, 50,000 people — you have an off-day and travel east, there’s a little potential for a let down,” Roberts said.The Atlanta Braves then beat the Dodgers, 8-1, before an announced crowd of 14,160 at Turner Field. By margin of defeat, it was the Dodgers’ worst loss in 14 games this season and that’s without regard to the quality of their opponent. When the day began, no team in baseball had won fewer games than the Braves (three). Only two teams had won more games than the Dodgers (eight). Between starting pitcher Alex Wood and a slippery-handed defense — three errors, one wild pitch and one passed ball — the Dodgers looked more like the rebuilding team than the Braves.Atlanta catcher Tyler Flowers, a career .223 hitter, tied his career high with four hits. Jeff Francoeur, a .083 hitter when the day began, raised his average to .200 with a pair of hits. A two-run double by rookie Mallex Smith (career batting average .130) compounded J.P. Howell’s season-long misery and drove in the game’s final runs.The Dodgers got their only run when Joc Pederson singled, went to third base on a single by Chase Utley and scored on a groundout by Corey Seager.Wood had never started a game as a visiting pitcher at Turner Field. From 2013-15, he was part of the Braves’ future until a deadline-day trade last year made him a Dodger.In his third start of the season, Wood (1-2) gave up six runs, three earned, in four innings. He walked three batters, including one with the bases loaded, and struck out one.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

Why we went low-tech showcasing high-tech smart cities at SXSW

first_imgHow IoT Will Play an Important Role in Traffic … James is a marketing, communications, and PR professional specializing in B2B and B2C software in healthcare, software, and technology.He is an innovative and proactive builder focused on bridging C-level business demands with the creative side of marketing with product and content marketing. Surveillance at the Heart of Smart Cities Last month, our teams at StratIS and BuLogics exhibited at South by Southwest (SXSW) for the first time. We went there with a singular focus: to educate people on the importance of working together towards building smart cities. So often in the tech community, people want to quickly tear down what other’s have built or are trying to build. But it doesn’t have to always be this way.We went extremely low tech to highlight the very high tech topic of smart cities. We created a smart-cities-focused project for our booth that really stood out and had our employees slammed with networking opportunities.If you know SXSW you know that it has grown tremendously noisy over the years with companies from many different industries competing for everyone’s attention.Our marketing team met leading up to the event thinking about how we could ever compete with the amount of noise that is SXSW. We landed on Legos, yes Legos. But not just any legos, we challenged attendees to stop by our booth and help build a smart city out of legos. Once that plan was set we worked hard to get the rest in place. Signage, stealing Legos from some of our children, holding a company-wide Lego night to practice building certain pieces, creating a promo video and figuring out how to ship all these little pieces.StratIS is smart access, energy, and automation for multifamily buildings and campus communities and the smart start for smart cities.Our team is dedicated to putting in the hard and real work for building the infrastructure needed for smart cities around the globe to thrive. For us, that starts with smart access, energy and automation.For SXSW we took on the role of educator. Show us a smart city that has been built by one single solution, government, company or organization. It can simply, not be done. So our booth was a metaphor of sorts.Our new in-house filmmaker created a film to promote the project at our booth.I didn’t head to Austin with the rest of the team, but I could tell right away by monitoring our social media that the campaign was a huge success. People started taking photos of themselves at the show adding a piece to our Lego Smart City. The Mayor of Philadelphia Jim Kenney even stopped by the booth. My coworkers must have been too in awe to snap a photo.The Lego project got people talking, asking questions and involved far more than giving away a $5-$30 piece of swag would ever do for our brand. The Lego Smart City attracted media attention, nonstop booth traffic, CTOs of Fortune 500 companies and SXSW attendees who just stopped to play.The construction of the Lego city changed over the four-day event. Here is what it looked like at the end:It was a great opportunity for our team to meet with city planners from all over the world and to continue the discussion with them about what their smart city needs are back home.
