first_img News TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Receive email alerts News Reporters Without Borders today called on the Tunisian Internet Agency (ATI) to publicly explain why access to the video-sharing website Dailymotion is being blocked. Dailymotion has been inaccessible from within Tunisia since 1 September.“Whether it is responsible or not, the ATI should take a position on this measure and should not leave Tunisian Internet users with no idea of what is happening,” the press freedom organisation said.The ATI told Reporters Without Borders that it was “not aware of the filtering” that is assumed to be the cause. But TopNet, one of Tunisia’s leading Internet Service Providers, referred to “temporary filtering” that had been decided by the ATI.Technical problems were cited when Dailymotion could not be accessed for about 10 days in April. A privately-owned Internet Service Provider was said to have installed filtering that made it inaccessible throughout the country.

Barbados complete double with eight-wicket win over Guyana

first_imgBARBADOS Senior Women’s cricket team put an end to their regional tournaments with all the verve that was expected of them at the start, brushing Guyana aside by eight wickets and more than three overs to spare in the final match of the Cricket West Indies Women’s T20 Blaze tournament last evening at the National Stadium, Providence.Winning the T20 tournament also meant Barbados finished the season undefeated and had made a clean sweep of regional women’s cricket titles this year after capturing the Colonial Medical Insurance Super50 Cup earlier.The Barbadians were clinical with the ball right from the word go, as they kept pegging the home team back with wickets at regular intervals. The Guyanese could only muster up 85-7 in their allotted overs.Star all-round Deandra Dottin and Kycia Knight then made their presence felt, stroking unbeaten knocks of 43 and 24 respectively which led the visitors to 86-2 in 16.1 overs.Dottin, the West Indies all-rounder clobbered six fours and two maximums while Knight faced 27 balls in her knock with two boundaries.Off-spinner Hayley Matthews (not in picture), bowled Akaze Thomspon. (Adrian Narine photos)At the start of the game the Guyanese run rate was heavily restricted after they won the toss and decided to take first knock.Captain Shemaine Campbelle spearheaded the fight to restore credibility to their innings with a top score of 18 off 28 balls, with two boundaries and receiving some support from Cherry Ann Fraser (15), Shabika Gajnabi (12), and Melanie Henry (10).The home team was quickly in trouble when they lost Tremayne Smartt, run out for two and Sheneta Grimmond was bowled by medium pacer Shanika Bruce (1-18), without scoring, at 6-2 after the first two overs.Campbelle and Henry then added 36 runs for the third wicket but the hosts were once again found wanting with the bat, losing wickets in a flurry.They stuttered to 48-5 with Shakera Selman (2-16), claiming the wicket of Henry while the off-spinner Hayley Matthews (2-13), removed the in-form Campbelle and Akaze Thomspon (0), off consecutive deliveries in her third over.The Guyanese other substantial partnership was between Gajnabi and Fraser as they put together 23 for the sixth wicket before both were dismissed to Selman and Shanika Connell (1-16) respectively.Barbados’ innings was somewhat sluggish up front, resulting in their Powerplay overs yielding just 22 runs for the loss of opener Danielle Small, who was trapped leg before wicket to Erva Giddings for one.Matthews made a 30-ball 15 before she departed off spinner Grimmond. However, Knight and Dottin then joined forces to seal the win.Meanwhile, Windward Islands beat the Leeward Islands by a margin of 11 runs to earn a consolation victory in game two of the final round.Scores: Windward Islands 115-8 – Afy Fletcher and Swayline Williams made 24 runs apiece; Malisa Howard and Amanda Edwards claimed two wickets apiece. In reply the Leeward Islands were restricted to 104-9.Saneldo Willett top-scored with 25. Pearl Etienne took 3-14.After the final game, Captain Matthews praised her team for the commitment, hard work and discipline throughout the tournament.last_img read more
