It is not known where they are being held and their lawyers and relatives have been unable to get any word of them.The organisation cautioned the authorities about a campaign orchestrated by judicial officials and revolutionary guards in the mosques and conservative press in which all the detained students and journalists are accused of being “mohareb” (persons who fight against God), which is punishable by death.Reporters Without Borders also reiterated its call for the release of all the journalists imprisoned in Iran, which now totals at least 17. The recent arrests have made Iran the biggest prison for journalists in the Middle East.Akrami worked for the reformist daily Nedat Eslahat, which has been closed by the authorities for some time. His wife said she has not seen him since 16 June, when he went missing while outside Tehran university, and she said she was worried about his fate.State prosecutor Saïd Mortazavi has said the recently detained journalists were being held in Evin prisons. But lawyers of the journalists who have gone to the prison have not been able to locate their clients and found no mention of their names in the prison records.Mohsen Sazgara, the editor of the website Alliran and the (closed) reformist daily Jameh, is meanwhile continuing the hunger strike he began on the day of his arrest on 15 June. He is now very weak, and his condition is all the more worrying because he has a heart ailment. His wife, who is also on hunger strike to protest against his imprisonment, was summoned by judicial officials on 25 June and was hospitalised the same day.last_img read more

Then ask our experts to find a solution.E-mail it to the address at the bottom of the page I have a portion of the workforce that is largely computer-illiterate. I haveseen an e-learning course module that would be appropriate for them. Can yougive me any advice about preparing them for the new method of learning, or am Ibarking up the wrong tree with the idea? Some might say you’re mad! I suspect you’ve been taken in by those providerswho suggest that e-learning is some sort of panacea. It isn’t. Granted, it canbe highly effective, but it generally works best when used to remind peoplewhat they learned during an instructor-led session rather than to teach somethingfrom scratch. This doesn’t mean to say it can’t be done. I suggest you take those whoaren’t conversant with computers and arrange for them to have someinstructor-led tuition on basic computer usage. Following this, the instructorsshould spend some time introducing and familiarising the group with howcomputer-based training works – slowly leading and encouraging them through thedoorway (portal, if you want to get technical) to the learning environment. The great benefit of CBT is that learners can proceed at their own pace andre-visit as many times as they wish until they have mastered the content. Thisshould be explained to them because it will make them feel warmer towards it.It might help if the portal is something they can relate to – perhaps a bookwith pages that appear to turn. If they don’t feel comfortable, they won’tlearn and you won’t achieve your business objectives. If you’re not convinced that instructor-led tuition is fundamental for thisgroup, cast your mind back to when you first started using a computer. Weren’tyou full of trepidation in case you pressed the wrong thing and did somethingterminal? Weren’t you frustrated when you couldn’t make it do what you wanted?Wasn’t there a certain amount of fear every time you hit the return key? Didn’tyou find it easier to be shown what to do rather than trying to work your wayaround using a manual? I rest my case.

Who plays on ‘Sunday Night Football’ tonight? Time, TV channel, schedule for Week 15

first_imgTonight’s “Sunday Night Football” game is a big one for the NFL playoff picture. In a game scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on NBC, the 8-5 Steelers will host the 9-4 Bills. Pittsburgh and Buffalo entered Week 15 as the No. 5 and No. 6 seeds, respectively, in the AFC playoffs.Steelers vs. Bills a couple weeks ago was flexed into the “Sunday Night Football” slot due to the game’s playoff implications; it bumped Chargers vs. Vikings to a different time window. Buffalo simply needs a win in Pittsburgh to clinch a playoff berth, but the Bills have lost their last six games against the Steelers, and Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin has never lost (4-0) to Buffalo. MORE: Watch “Sunday Night Football” live with fuboTV (7-day free trial)To pull of the mild upset as one-point road underdogs, the Bills will need another impressive performance from Josh Allen. The quarterback has posted a passer rating of 90 or better in three of his last four games, and he has 4 TDs, no INTs and a 119.6 passer rating in his last two starts on the road.Allen’s QB counterpart Sunday night is part of the reason the Steelers have remained in the playoff picture despite their injury-related issues at the position this season. Devlin Hodges earned his third win in his third career start last week, and with a win against Buffalo, Hodges would tie Virgil Carter (four wins in 1968) and Phil Simms (four in 1979) for the third-longest streak of wins by a rookie QB to begin a career in the Super Bowl era (1966-present). Additionally, with a win, Hodges would become the first undrafted rookie quarterback to win each of his first four starts in the common draft era (1967-present).Below is all the info you need to watch Steelers vs. Bills on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time for the Week 15 game.Who plays on Sunday Night Football tonight?Matchup: Buffalo Bills at Pittsburgh SteelersKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn our Week 15 NFL picks against the spread and straight-up predictions, Sporting News is split on Sunday night’s Steelers-Bills game. Below are the explanations for each pick.Pick against the spread: Josh Allen and the Bills’ offense were stymied for the most part last week. That’s bad news against the Steelers, who just did a similar number on Kyler Murray. Allen will get sacked a ton and stay in his slump, while the Steelers will ease the burden on Devlin Hodges with more success in the running game. Pittsburgh will become the better AFC wild-card team and keep building on their incredible second-half turnaround. Pick: Steelers win 20-17 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: Mike Tomlin is getting coach of the year buzz for good reason considering how he has kept the Steelers on track for an improbable playoff push. Deserving of similar buzz is Sean McDermott, who has the Bills on the verge of 10 wins and legitimately pushing the Patriots in the AFC East standings. These teams are where they are in Week 15 thanks to their defenses, and statistically speaking, Buffalo’s unit has been slightly better. The QB issues will catch up to Pittsburgh, and Josh Allen will put on another impressive showing in front of a national TV audience. That Buffalo has the better rushing offense will help, too.
