This Day in History: KKK member Robert Chambliss was convicted for…

first_imgOn the day in history November 18, 1977, Ku Klux Klan member Robert Chambliss was convicted in the Birmingham, Alabama, church bombing that killed four little Black girls.A witness identified Chambliss as the man who placed a box of dynamite underneath the stairs of the 16th Street Baptist Church, where the girls and dozens of others were attending Sunday school services. Carole Robertson, 14, Denise McNair, 11, Cynthia Wesley, 14, and Addie Mae Collins, 14, all died in the blast and 23 others were injured.Chambliss was arrested and tried with murder on Oct. 8, 1963, but was cleared on the murder charges and sentenced to six months in jail for having the dynamite and $300 fine. Civil rights leaders rallied for justice for the little girls, and with the help of Alabama Attorney General Bill Baxley, the FBI reopened the case to reveal evidence against Chambliss not used in the original trial.In November 1977, at 73 years old, Chambliss was re-tried and convicted of the murders and sentenced to life in prison. He died on Oct. 29, 1985. Bet.comlast_img read more

Tunisia ruling party suspends PM’s membership after row with president’s son

Earlier in the day the two leaders discussed the acceptance by Tunisia of Tunisians in Germany up for deportation due to failed asylum applications. The issue has become sensitive in light of the December terror attack in Berlin by Tunisian national Anis Amri, whose deportation was pending but had been delayed due to the slow response by Tunisian authorities. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images) BERLIN, GERMANY – FEBRUARY 14: Tunisian Prime Minister Youssef Chahed . (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)Tunisia’s ruling Nidaa Tounes party said on Friday it had frozen the prime minister’s membership in the latest escalation in a row between the prime minister and the president’s son.Prime Minister Youssef Chahed said in May that the president’s son, Hafedh Caid Essebsi, had destroyed the ruling Nidaa Tounes party and that the crisis in the party has affected state institutions.“The party decided to freeze the membership of Chahed”, Nidaa Tounes said in a statement.The president’s son, who is the leader of Nidaa Tounes, had called for the prime minister’s dismissal because of his government’s failure to revive the economy. His call was supported by the powerful UGTT union, which rejected economic reforms proposed by the prime minister.But the moderate Islamist party Ennahda rejected calls to dismiss Chahed and said the exit of the prime minister would hit stability at a time when the country needed economic reforms.“Despite the lack of political support for the government, we will move ahead with economic reforms next year, including the reform of subsidies and social funds,” Chahed said on Friday.In July, president Beji Caid Essebsi called Chahed to step down or seek a confidence vote if the country’s political and economic crisis continues, withdrawing his support for the premier.The North African country has been hailed as the Arab Spring’s only democratic success because protests toppled autocrat Zine El Abidine Ben Ali in 2011 without triggering the kind of violent upheavals seen in Syria and Libya.But since 2011, nine cabinets have failed to resolve Tunisia’s economic problems, which include high inflation and unemployment, and impatience is rising among lenders such as the International Monetary Fund, which have kept the country afloat.Relatedlast_img read more

Aquaculture & Aquaponics Systems Becoming Mainstream

first_imgLocalNews Aquaculture & Aquaponics Systems Becoming Mainstream by: – June 30, 2020 Share Share Share Tweetcenter_img Sharing is caring! 123 Views   no discussions (Fisheries Division) The Fisheries Division of the Ministry of Blue and Green Economy Agriculture and National Food Security continues to explore new ways and alternative methods to agriculture while addressing climate resiliency within the fisheries sector.Through the UN FAO (Climate Change) CC4FISH Project, which includes the development of the aquaculture industry and introducing the wider population to the concepts of aquaponics, on Monday June 22 2020 a nutrient film technique (NFT) aquaponics system was installed within the water feature of the Government Headquarters building.The water feature is quite spacious, and a Nutrient Film Technique (NFT) aquaponics system was designed within it. Aquaponics involves the soil-less culture of crops, fertilized by fish waste water. The NFT system comprises large PVC pipes, with holes to accommodate plants grown in cups or net pots. Water is then pumped through the pipes, directly supplying the roots of the plants with the requisite nutrients for growth. The continuous flow of water ensures that the roots of the plants are adequately oxygenated.The materials for the demonstration NFT system were locally sourced and cost approximately 300 XCD. It was installed by an FAO consultant and two fisheries officers. The plants stocked into the system were provided by the Division of Agriculture’s Plant Propagation Unit.The Government Headquarters building in Roseau contains a water feature complete with ornamental plants and fish including 10 large koi. Given that the building houses eleven (11) ministries/offices and is visited by a wide cross section of people on a daily basis, it provided the ideal location for a demonstration aquaponics system on island.last_img read more
