TCU study abroad focuses on preparedness in face of global terrorism

first_imgFacebook printIn recent years, some students studying abroad have found themselves in countries affected by terrorism; but that hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm for many traveling overseas. Rob Hancock, a senior finance major, said he is not alarmed by the threat of terrorism and natural disasters affecting TCU’s traveling abroad program yet.“I don’t think situations are so bad yet that TCU will cancel study abroad programs, but I do think there is a possibility it does eventually reach that point,” Hancock said. “Odds are small that we are ever in a terrorist attack, but you can never be too careful. Always be on the lookout for anything suspicious.”The 2016 bombings in Brussels, Belgium, and the 2017 London Bridge and Spain attacks all happened in popular study abroad destinations. Collectively, more than 94 people were killed and hundreds more injured. Many TCU students have had to learn first-hand about the fear of terrorism, but few have found it to be a determinant. Alexa Garcia, a senior psychology major, said she felt safe because of the program TCU partnered with in Spain.  “In case a disaster would have been near areas we were in, the program would have prepared us for anything that may happen,” Garcia said.Though traveling abroad does pose risks, the Director of TCU’s Center for International Studies Dr. Sandra Callaghan, advises students on the resources available to them.“We cover health and safety extensively in location-specific orientations,” Callaghan said. “We rely heavily on the expert advice that we have retained as well as best practices in the field.”The Global Realities the world faces today are complex and addressing these realities will take global knowledge, global mindedness and global engagement according to the Center for International Studies.TCU provides travel abroad programs that travel to over 54 destinations around the world. Students can choose to study abroad for a year, a semester, a summer or a short-term program. All TCU approved programs include a credit-bearing curriculum. Additionally, financial aid and scholarships are available to students.According to the Center for International Studies, “students pay the same TCU tuition rate, and study abroad program fees are similar to the cost of TCU housing.” + posts TCU cancels offer to trade tickets for canned food Pompeii.

Middle East governments clamp down on coronavirus coverage

first_imgThe only criticism has been about the treatment of Saudi citizens returning from Iran who are from Qatif, a mainly Shia region in the northeast of Saudi Arabia. Widely shared social media posts have accused Iran of introducing the virus into Saudi Arabia because it failed to stamp the passports of travellers as they left. March 27, 2020 Middle East governments clamp down on coronavirus coverage Doubts nonetheless persisted because of Syria’s proximity and close contacts with Iran, the site of the region’s biggest coronavirus outbreak. Opposition media outlets carried articles reporting coronavirus cases in pro-government regions such as Tartus and Latakia. Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says The Saudi authorities have held daily press conferences in a show of transparency while the national media have endorsed the official line, praising the example set by the kingdom and its strong response to the epidemic. Apparent media unanimity Organisation According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, several doctors confirmed receiving orders from the authorities to say nothing about Covid-19. A Facebook page and Twitter account purporting to belong to pro-Assad journalist Rafik Loutf reported the deaths of several patients with Covid-19 symptoms. Loutf subsequently posted a video on Facebook denying that that he was the owner of these accounts and denying the rumours of coronavirus cases. Syrians remained in the dark for several weeks. The government denied that there were any cases in Syria and the public health ministry announced on 22 February that the state news agency SANA, which is overseen by the intelligence services and the president’s office, would be the sole sources of information about the coronavirus. The first Covid-19 case was officially confirmed a month later. Walsh was given a warning for retweeting a message by one of these Canadian researchers. He subsequently deleted the tweet. Exceptional measures “The coronavirus crisis must not be used by Middle Eastern governments as a pretext for tightening their grip on the media and clamping down on information,” said Sabrina Bennoui, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “The measures that are taken to control the epidemic must not in any way affect journalists’ work.” June 4, 2021 Find out more Syria, coronavirus news black hole News Two foreign reporters, Guardian correspondent Ruth Michaelson and New York Times Cairo bureau chief Declan Walsh were called in for questioning by the SIS. Michaelson was forced to leave Egypt on 20 March, three days after her accreditation was withdrawn over an article questioning Egypt’s then official figure of around 100 coronavirus cases and citing Canadian medical researchers who estimated that Egypt must already have more than 19,000 cases.

In Jordan, for example, the measures taken under a state of emergency included suspending the printing of newspapers on the grounds that they could help to spread infection. The rankings of the Middle East’s countries in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index range from 88th (Israel) to 174th (Syria). The journalists’ union has asked to the supreme court to order an exemption for journalists, in order to ensure that they are not spied on while moving about in the course of their work, gathering information and interviewing sources.

Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia Ever since the start of the pandemic, many journalists in the Middle East have expressed doubts about the official figures for coronavirus cases in their countries and have criticized the lack of governmental transparency. RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan RSF_en In Israel, the prime minister has given the intelligence services the go-ahead to tap into the mobile phones of people who have the coronavirus in order monitor their movements and interactions. This provision is normally reserved for anti-terrorism investigations. A report on MBC, a privately-owned TV channel run by a member of the Saudi royal family, tried to end the controversy by staging an interview with a Qatif resident described as being the first patient to be cured of Covid-19. He thanked the authorities for the way he was treated and said he and his family had been housed in a 5-star hotel during isolation. The authorities have made extensive use of existing control mechanisms. In Egypt, the government has stepped up censorship via the Supreme Council for Media Regulation (SCMR) and the State Information Service (SIS).

Victory for New York Times reporters in fight to protect sources

first_img News February 28, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Victory for New York Times reporters in fight to protect sources Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information United StatesAmericas RSF_en A New York judge on 24 February recognized the right of two New York Times journalists, Judith Miller et Philip Shenon, to protect the confidentiality of their sources. The US Attorney may appeal. Reporters Without Borders welcomes this ruling while cautioning that the present tendency in the US courts is to force journalists to name their sources. Organisation News Follow the news on United States Reporters Without Borders today welcomed a ruling by US district judge Robert W. Sweet of Manhattan, New York, recognizing the right of two New York Times journalists, Judith Miller and Philip Shenon, to protect the confidentiality of their sources.”This is just a small victory as it is only a lower court ruling and other cases are still pending that are likely to weaken the confidentiality of sources,” the press freedom organization said. “But this ruling reaffirms one of press freedom’s inviolable principles and it is an encouraging development while we wait for the US senate and house of representatives to consider two bills that would guarantee journalists absolute protection for their sources before the courts,” Reporters Without Borders added.In his ruling issued on 24 February, Judge Sweet said records of phone calls made by the two journalists did not have to be surrendered to federal prosecutors investigating a governmental leak in an investigation begun in 2001 into two Islamic charities suspected of links with terrorist groups. The judge based his decision on First Amendment privilege as interpreted in previous court rulings.A lawyer for the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press explained that Miller and Shenon telephoned the charities to get their reaction to the fact they were the target of an FBI investigation. As a result, they were accused of alerting the charities to the investigation’s existence.The attempt to seize the phone records was made by Chicago US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who is also responsible for obtaining an 18-month suspended prison sentence against Miller and Time magazine journalist Matthew Cooper for their refusal to name their sources in an investigation into who leaked the identity of undercover CIA agent Valerie Plame to the press.Some 10 journalists are currently been prosecuted in the United States for refusing to disclose their sources.

Odessa chef featured on the Food Network

Barrientos is the owner of local restaurant Curbside Bistro and recently was selected to be on an episode of the Food Network gameshow “Beat Bobby Flay” which will air on April 22. (Eli Hartman | Odessa American) At first, Alejandro Barrientos thought it was all a joke.It was late 2018 and the longtime chef and owner of Curb Side Bistro, located at 3816 Andrews Highway in Odessa, got a message on Instagram.It was a vague recruiting message from a production company with the Food Network’s show Beat Bobby Flay.The email asked Barrientos about the possibility of appearing on the show and to message back for more information.Barrientos, like most people in that situation, was a little skeptical.“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “I didn’t know if we should trust that person because you hear stories about scams and everything like that. I was hesitant but decided that as long as I didn’t give them any personal info, we had nothing to lose.”It turned out to be the real deal and now, almost three years later, the Odessan will be featured on a new episode of Beat Bobby Flay, which is scheduled to air at 7 p.m. April 22.Bobby Flay is a famous celebrity chef and restaurateur.He is the owner and executive chef of several restaurants including Mesa Grill in Las Vegas, Bar Americain in New York and Bobby Flay Steak in Atlantic City, just to name a few.He’s hosted several Food Network television programs and has been a guest on a number of specials as well on the network.Beat Bobby Flay, features various chefs competing against him with numerous celebrity appearances and is taped in front of a live audience.The format of the show works like this: two contestants cook for 20 minutes against each other using an ingredient chosen by Flay. The guests then decide who cooked the better dish and faces Flay in the second round.Barrientos will be competing alongside fellow chef Andrew Bent.The winning contestant then chooses a dish for both the contestant and Flay to cook in the second round which lasts for 45 minutes.Who becomes the winner is determined by three judges in a blind taste test.The judges for Barrientos’ episode are Justin Bazdarich, Ivy Stark and Ariel Fox.Because of a nondisclosure agreement Barrientos has signed, he is limited to what he can talk about before the show airs including if he won or not.However, despite the long timeline between getting the Instagram message to this year, Barrientos is still in disbelief that he actually got to be on the show.“It is crazy,” Barrientos said. “Even when I was there, I still couldn’t believe it. It’s just something that I will always remember.”For him, it’s a dream come true, having grown up watching different cooking shows on TV.“I remember growing up watching cooking shows from PBS to the Food Network,” Barrientos said. “Back in the day, the Food Network wasn’t as popular as it is now. People now, when they can’t sleep or binge watch, even if they don’t like to cook, they’ll watch Diners and Dives or The Chew or any other shows. It’s become more mainstream.”However, it wasn’t an overnight process.After receiving the message, it was a number of months before Barrientos was able to fly to New York City to be on the show.Even after the message, he wasn’t sure if they would still select him and he had to go through a lengthy application process.“I sent them pictures and a resume,” Barrientos said. “It was like I was applying for a job. They needed a lot of information.”It wasn’t until April, 2019 when Barrientos and his wife, Stephanie Barrientos, were on vacation, celebrating his birthday in Las Vegas when he received a call telling him that he had been selected.“I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Las Vegas, but in the casinos, your phone gets no signal whatsoever,” Barrientos said. “My phone started ringing and it was a production company calling me and telling me that I had been selected and congratulating me. I couldn’t believe it.”October, 2019 was when Barrientos was able to go to the Big Apple for the show’s taping and because of the non-disclosure agreement, he wasn’t allowed to tell anybody.“It was a roller coaster of emotions,” Barrientos said. “The only person I could tell was my wife. We went to New York for a few days and we made up excuses about why we were going.”He said the experience he got in New York was amazing.“Everybody there was nice,” Barrientos said. “New York has a bad rap of being tough or people being rude but everyone there was kind. The production company was great. It was so crazy because they treat you like a celebrity. They have an assistant come help you. They put us in a green room with snacks and they ask if you need anything.”Being able to compete against Flay, who ranks as one of his favorite chefs, was something Barrientos will never forget.“As a young culinarian here, you have some cooking heroes,” Barrientos said. “For me, Bobby Flay was one of the ones that I have ranked high up there just because he was one of the first American chefs to actually go on (Iron Chef) in Asia. He was one of the first American chefs to go on there and he won. It was a huge thing and he beat them. To me, it was awesome. He’s just like me. I can make it up there and cook. It was one of the goals to meet him and cook with him because he’s one of my heroes.”After the episode was taped came a lengthy waiting period. Barrientos wasn’t sure when the episode would air.Then came the uncertainties in a pandemic-stricken 2020 in which numerous shows were put on hold due to social distancing and other restrictions.As the months went by, Barrientos became more and more doubtful that his episode would air.“It’s a good thing that I didn’t tell anybody,” Barrientos said. “You wouldn’t want to tell everybody that you were on Beat Bobby Flay and then it doesn’t air. It was in the back of my mind. We were doing all types of things and COVID put industries on the back of their heads.”“I would see the seasons and go down and check because it lists which chefs are on there and would constantly check our emails over it because you get a press release when it is going to air,” Barrientos said. “We didn’t have anything. I was feeling a little bit depressed. I was telling my wife that I had a bad feeling but I was going to shake it off and that it was nothing.”Then, two weeks, after waking up and getting ready for work, he had a feeling that something good was going to happen.“That morning, I woke up and prayed and knew that it was going to be a great day,” Barrientos said.It turns out, he was right to be optimistic as he soon got word from his wife about his episode.“By the time I got to work, I had three missed calls from my wife. I thought something bad happened but she said ‘We got it! We got it! Look at the email!’ and it was the press release saying that we were going to be on and congratulation.”With the exposure expected to come, Barrientos is happy for the publicity that the episode of Beat Bobby Flay can do for Curb Side Bistro.He’s also ecstatic about representing the Permian Basin.“It puts the spotlight that someone from West Texas can actually make it to the Food Network,” Barrientos said. “I have a lot of friends who are trying to go into the food business and I want them to see that hey, this is how I did it. I can do it. I can maybe go on more shows. I want it to be a stepping stone for all the culinarians here in West Texas.” Slap Your Mama It’s So Delicious Southern Squash CasseroleTexas Fried ChickenFruit Salad to Die ForPowered By 10 Sec Mama’s Deviled Eggs NextStay last_img read more
