Both the Government and the public respect and treasure Hong Kong’s free speech and freedom of the press.

The Government made the statement today in response to the public procession held by some media groups.

It noted the Chief Executive publicly stated that both the Government and he himself has attached great importance to these freedoms and will continue to do so.

The Government will strive to safeguard these core values as they are the major elements to sustaining Hong Kong’s status as an international metropolis, and its continuous development.

On community concern expressed over staff changes in media organisations in recent years, the Government said it cannot interfere with the editorial freedom, independent operation and internal management of these organisations.

In defamation cases, the First Amendment applies equally to bloggers, dead-tree journalists and anyone else who is speaking to the public, a federal appeals court ruled Friday.

The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered a new trial for Montana blogger Crystal Cox, whom a jury found liable for defaming an investment firm and one of its lead partners. Ms. Cox, in her appeal, didnt dispute the jurys finding that fraud and other allegations she made in a 2008 blog post were false and defamatory.

She argued, rather, that the jury could find her liable for defamation only if it also found she acted negligently. And the jury couldnt award damages unless itfound that Ms. Cox knew the post was false or acted with reckless disregard of its truth. The trial judge gave neither instruction to the jury.

Obsidian Finance GroupLLC and partner Kevin Padrick, who won a $2.5 million judgment against Ms. Cox, argued that only institutional media defendants deserved such First Amendment protection.

Judge Andrew Hurwitz, writing for the unanimous panel of the Ninth Circuit, said Ms. Coxs status as a blogger was irrelevant.

The protections of theFirst Amendment do not turn on whether the defendant wasa trained journalist, formally affiliated with traditional newsentities, engaged in conflict-of-interest disclosure, went beyond just assembling others writings, or tried to get both sides of a story. As the Supreme Court has accurately warned, a First Amendment distinction between the institutional press and other speakers is unworkableIn defamation cases, the public-figure status of a plaintiff and the public importance of the statement at issuenot the identity of the speakerprovide the First Amendment touchstones.

Eugene Volokh, Ms. Coxs lawyer, said the decision was rightas a matter of First Amendment principle but also as a matter of history and precedent.

A lawyer for Obsidian and Mr. Padrick, Steven Wilker, emailed us this statement:

While we are obviously disappointed in the ruling, we do note that the court concluded that there was no dispute that the statements were false and defamatory. We also note that the Court describes Ms. Cox as apparently having a history of making similar allegations and seeking payoffs in exchange for retraction. Ms. Coxs false and defamatory statements have caused substantial damage to our clients, and we are evaluating our options with respect to the courts decision.

First Amendment Doesn’t Distinguish Between Bloggers and Press, Court Says

By Ashley Mackin

The La Jolla Parks and Beaches community advisory committee held a special meeting Dec. 23 to discuss plans for the Childrens Pool Walk beautification project and get updates on related money matters.

With just over $250,000 in the bank thanks largely to a $200,000 donation from La Jolla resident Tom Morgan the board needed to approve spending some of that money on the services of design architect Jim Neri.

Artists rendering of the Childrens Pool Walk project Courtesy

Through a statement read by LJP&B member Phyllis Minick, Neri requested the board approve $51,311 in additional fees for the design development, engineering, construction documents, plan processing, permit fees, BID administration and construction services, as submitted in the Dec. 12, 2013 proposal by Neri Landscape Architecture (NLA).

The LJP&B board, to cover any additional and unforeseen fees, voted to approve an amount not to exceed $55,000 to be paid to NLA. Neri said he would offer a fee reduction because he believes this project should come to fruition.

Since this is a community-funded project in my own community, NLA is discounting our fees 20 percent and is not charging the customary 10 percent markup of our consultant fees, saving $6,500 in fees for the construction of this much-needed project, his statement read.

While one set of fees was reduced, another increased. Minick reported that city permit costs have increased by 20 percent since the projects inception three years ago, which translates into $53,000.

However, Minick said she received a letter from the city indicating that $70,000 would be available in mid-2014, and another $30,000 might also become available. Should we laugh or cry? she joked, reflecting on the three years spent and dozens of grant proposals submitted for this project. We thank (District 1 City Councilmember) Sherri Lightner for getting this done.

Minick said, on the advice of some board members, that she will request $70,000 be used to cover city-permit costs.

NEW YORK, June 27 (UPI) — For the third consecutive year, U.S. beaches experienced more than 20,000 closing and advisory days due to polluted water, an environmental group says.

The 23rd annual beach water quality report released by the Natural Resources Defense Council found 80 percent of the closings and advisories were issued because testing revealed bacteria levels in the water violated public health standards, confirming serious water pollution persists at many U.S. shores.

The primary known cause of this pollution is massive storm water runoff and sewage, the report said.

“Sewage and contaminated runoff in the water can spoil a family vacation real fast, turning a day of lounging at the beach into a day at the doctor’s office with a sick child,” Jon Devine, NRDC’s senior attorney, said in the statement. “It’s no surprise that pollution in the waves is bad for business in beach communities. Our government leaders can help support local economies and salvage countless summer getaways nationwide by tackling one of the principal sources of these problems — storm water runoff.”

The researchers analyzed the latest beach water testing data results from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state beach coordinators at more than 3,000 beach testing locations nationwide.

Thirteen beaches had exceptionally low violation rates and strong testing and safety practices last year. There were:

— Alabama: Gulf Shores Public Beach in Baldwin County.

— Alabama: Gulf State Park Pavilion in Baldwin County.

— California: Bolsa Chica Beach in Orange County.

— California: Newport Beach in Orange County.

Liberty Mutual Holding Co., the third-largest seller of property-casualty coverage in the U.S., hired Colin Dowling to lead its public affairs office in Washington as policy makers weigh capital standards and laws on terrorism protection.

Dowling joins from Citigroup Inc. (C) where he was a managing director, running state and local government-affairs programs, according to a Business Wire statement today from Boston-based Liberty Mutual.

U.S. and international lawmakers are scrutinizing the balance sheets of the largest financial companies as they seek to avoid a repeat of the 2008 rescues required to prop up banks and insurers such as American International Group Inc. Policyholder-owned Liberty Mutual, which didnt take a bailout from the U.S. Treasury Department, said its government-relations group is also evaluating possible changes in laws about taxes, trade and terrorism.

At a time of increasing convergence of state, federal and international policy initiatives, Colins broad experience at both the state and federal levels and across the insurance and banking sectors, makes him an ideal person to run the Washington office, Paul Mattera, the insurers chief public affairs officer, said in the statement.

Mark Costiglio, a spokesman for New York-based Citigroup, declined to comment.

Boston False Flag Attack

Federal Revenue Mister Gail Shea is praising a massive leak of offshore banking information as good news for Canadians and bad news for tax evaders.

The minister issued a statement in response to media reports from outlets around the world working through the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists. The consortium says it obtained 2.5 million digital files related to more than 120,000 offshore companies and trusts and nearly 130,000 individuals. The CBC, which worked with the consortium, reported Thursday that the files contain information on 450 Canadians. So far only one name has been made public: class-action lawyer Tony Merchant, who is married to Liberal Senator Pana Merchant.

Video: Jim Flaherty’s top three budget highlights

It is not a crime to have an offshore bank account provided all related income is reported to tax authorities. So far, the Merchants have not commented on the CBC report.

The statement by Ms. Shea calls on anyone with information on tax cheats to come forward with that information, including the consortium of journalists.

We call on The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists to hand over this list to allow our government to crack down on tax evaders, said the minister in the statement.

The 2013 federal budget promised measures to crack down on tax cheats with new investigative powers and a new snitch line but the reality is the Canada Revenue Agency is facing deep budget cuts.

Finance Minister Jim Flahertys March budget contained about $60-million a year in budget cuts to the CRA. Those are in addition to $253.1-million in annual budget cuts announced in the 2012 budget.

Of the 19,234 positions Ottawa is planning to eliminate government wide, the CRA is projected to account for 3,008 of those jobs, making it the hardest hit department in terms of lost jobs.

Liberal Senator Percy Downe, who has been researching tax haven issues for several years, notes that Canadian authorities did not act as aggressively as other nations in response to previous big leaks of account information from Lichtenstein and Switzerland.

Liberty Global Inc. (LBTYA) bought a 12.65 percent stake in Dutch cable-television operator Ziggo NV (ZIGGO), the company controlled by billionaire John Malone said today.

Liberty Global paid about 632.5 million euros ($808.7 million) to buy 25.3 million shares of Ziggo from Barclays Capital Securities Ltd., the company said in a statement. Ziggo shares jumped as much as 10 percent in Amsterdam.

Barclays Plc (BARC) was left with a 697 million-euro stake in Utrecht-based Ziggo last week after it failed to find enough buyers for a 20 percent share sale it managed for owners Warburg Pincus LLC and Cinven Ltd.

The investment expands Englewood, Colorado-based Liberty Globals presence in the Netherlands, where its UPC Netherlands subsidiary operates, according to the statement, and is also financially attractive given the stocks approximate 7.4 percent dividend yield.

No Other Gospel
Galatians 1:6-10 February 10, 2013 Personal Application Questions 1. A counterfeit gospel refers to anything that adds to or subtracts from the person and work of Chris (in order to gain salvation). What are some examples of counterfeit gospels that you have encountered? 2. Today, there are many who embrace religious pluralism. You have probably heard the saying: “There are many roads that lead to heaven.” Based on Gal 1:6-10, how would Paul respond to this statement? 3. There is a difference between seeking to please people out of a fear of man, or for the applause of man (Gal 1:10), versus seeking to love people for the sake of the gospel (1 Cor 9:22; 10:33). The former elevates man's opinions and your own reputation, while the latter elevates the love of Christ over areas of personal Christian freedom. How would you explain this distinction?

* Premier (BSE: PREMIER.BO – news) held on suspicion of theft, misuse of credit card

* Caymans are home to most of the world’s hedge funds

By Shurna Robbins

GEORGE TOWN, Cayman Islands, Dec 11 (Reuters) – The leader of the Cayman Islands was arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of corruption in connection with a graft investigation in the Caribbean offshore financial center, authorities said.

Premier McKeeva Bush was detained at his home by members of the Financial Crime Unit of the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service, a police statement said.

The 57-year-old premier is suspected of theft, alleged misuse of a government credit card and abuse of office over the alleged importation of explosive substances without valid permits, it said.

“It would be inappropriate … to make any further comment in relation to these matters at this time,” the statement said. “Further updates will be made available in due course.”

A police spokeswoman declined to elaborate on the arrest.

Leonard Dilbert, Bush’s chief of staff, said the premier had been detained on suspicion of wrongdoing pending an investigation but had not been formally charged with any crime.

“It is important to remind the people of the Cayman Islands not to rush to judgment,” he said. “Being suspected of having done something is far from it having been proven that you did that thing.”

Cameron has 'concerns' over Leveson's press laws
Transcript of David Cameron's speech to the House of Commons: I have some serious concerns and misgivings on this recommendation. They breakdown into issues of principle, practicality and necessity. The issue of principle is that for the first time we would have crossed the Rubicon of writing elements of press regulation into the law of the land. We should, I believe, be wary of any legislation which that has the potential to infringe free speech and a free press. In this house which has been a bulwark of democracy for centuries we should think very, very carefully before crossing this line. On the grounds of practicality, no matter how simple the intention of the new law the legislation required to underpin the new statutory body would, I believe, become more complicated…. I'm not convinced at this stage that statute is necessary to achieve Lord Leveson's objectives. I believe there may be alternative options for putting in place incentives, providing reassuring the public, and ensuring the Leveson principles of regulation are put in place and these options should be explored. Mr Speaker, these questions including those about data protection are fundamental questions we must resolve. I've asked Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and the Leader of the Opposition to join me in cross party talks starting immediately after this statement. But let me be clear a regulatory system that complies with the Leveson principles should be put in place rapidly. I favour giving the …From:IBTimesUKViews:1 0ratingsTime:01:36More inNews Politics
