Video evidence Masters works to catch every shot on camera

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Staid and tradition-driven Augusta National is suddenly on the cutting edge of technology.The club that hosts the Masters isn’t particularly known for its embrace of the new. The club agonizes over the slightest change to its course layout. Etiquette is paramount. History is revered.A pimento cheese sandwich at concession stands is still just $1.50 for crying out loud.But pop open a laptop when the tournament begins Thursday and for the first time the Masters plans to have nearly all of the 20,000-plus shots available to view on its website just a few minutes after they happen.Club chairman Fred Ridley said the option is the first of its kind in golf.“It’s been two or three years in developing,” Ridley said Wednesday. “We had it in a beta test mode previously, but now I feel like that we can actually execute on this. So we just thought it was something that people wanted and which supplemented our other forms of providing coverage of the tournament.”The tournament’s online trailblazing is mildly surprising because the in-person mystique of the Masters has always been a huge part of its charm.In an era where many major professional franchises and college teams struggle to attract a live audience — at least partly because of numerous online and television viewing options — the decision-makers at Augusta National have no such worries.The throngs that walk the course in Augusta have often paid a small fortune to watch even the practice rounds. In a strange twist, they’ll be pretty much the only golf fans who can’t enjoy the new technology: Cell phones aren’t allowed on the course.Ridley said he doesn’t believe the tournament’s extra online features will detract from the live experience.“I think there’s always that discussion,” Ridley said of how much access is too much. “I think it’s a balance — what really drives us is quality. We could have come out with this a year or so ago, but we weren’t ready.”The reason they weren’t ready isn’t entirely clear: The club is secretive about pretty much everything that happens in its real or digital world. Still, it’s fairly obvious it’s a prodigious undertaking.The Masters Digital wing takes up a sizable chunk of the media centre and the room was buzzing with dozens of workers. The new technology was tested one final time during the inaugural Augusta Women’s Amateur tournament last week.The increased video is the most obvious new feature. Users would conceivably be able to watch a player’s round in a fraction of the time it takes to watch a full round, getting an unprecedented view at how players navigate the course from the first tee to Amen Corner to the uphill dogleg right finale on No. 18.The only time shots might not be captured is situations with difficult lies or if a group’s shots end up in vastly different locations. Ridley called it an “extensive library of content” that could be particularly useful during the first and second rounds when someone unexpected makes a charge up the leaderboard and TV isn’t capturing every move.The Masters has always had one of the smallest TV broadcast windows for a major and this is the first time that pretty much every shot will be captured on camera. Now every random hole-on-one, double eagle or gigantic mishap will come with video evidence.The new technology might not beat standing under the Georgia sunshine watching the world’s best players, but for the golf fans who can’t be here, it’s a potentially big upgrade in how they experience the tournament.“We’re not going to sacrifice quality,” Ridley said, “but we thought this was a great supplement to our traditional means of providing coverage.”___For more AP golf coverage: https://apnews.com/apf-Golf and https://twitter.com/AP_SportsDavid Brandt, The Associated Press read more

On this week’s show (May 16, 2017), FiveThirtyEight’s Kyle Wagner helps us make sense of one of the latest developments in the NBA playoffs: the ankle injury that forced Kawhi Leonard to miss Game 2 of the Western Conference finals. Can the San Antonio Spurs beat the Golden State Warriors without him? Next, Derek Jeter’s No. 2 jersey was retired by the New York Yankees on Sunday. We debate whether Jeter’s career was as great as the Yankees like to think it was. Finally, the prevailing wisdom is that playing at home during the playoffs matters — but is that true across all sports? We discuss. Plus, a significant digit on softball.Here are links to what we discussed:The Warriors’ Zaza Pachulia stepped on Leonard’s foot in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals, injuring Leonard. Was Pachulia’s play dirty, accidental or both? The Ringer’s Rodger Sherman investigates.The Washington Post’s Neil Greenberg argues that the Spurs cannot beat the Warriors without Leonard.In 2014, Neil Paine found that Derek Jeter wasn’t clutch — he was just good.Last week, Neil discovered that a home playoff game can be a big advantage — but not in hockey.Earlier this year, FiveThirtyEight found that coaches’ yelling at refs actually works.Significant Digit: 1 — the ranking of the Minnesota Golden Gophers, the top ranked college softball team in the nation, according to a new coaches poll released this week.

Albert Pujols Is The Worst Player In Baseball

He ranks eighth all-time in home runs, seventh in extra-base hits and 10th in total bases. At his peak, he won three MVP awards and was also the best position player in baseball — according to wins above replacement (WAR)1Taking the average of Baseball-Reference.com’s and FanGraphs.com’s versions of WAR. — three times (in 2006, 2008 and 2009). Pujols’s resume makes him a surefire first-ballot Hall of Famer.But this season, a new title can be assigned to Pujols: He’s the worst player in baseball.Pujols has flat-out stunk up Angel Stadium. He’s hitting .230 (79 points below his previous career average) with an on-base plus slugging 26 percent worse than league average. Even in an age of ineffective designated hitters, Pujols has easily been the worst hitter at the position that provides the least defensive value (i.e., zero value). As a result, no player has been less valuable than Pujols this year: His -1.99 WAR ranks dead last among all players (including pitchers).If he finishes the season in last place — which seems quite possible, as L.A. continues to pencil him into its starting lineup, day after day, despite his poor numbers — Pujols will become the first modern2Since MLB’s two-league era began in 1901. position player ever to be both baseball’s best and worst player at various points in his career. The worst finish by a former No. 1 player previously belonged to the delightfully named New York Yankees second baseman Snuffy Stirnweiss. Snuffy was baseball’s top position player in 1945, when many of the league’s best (such as Ted Williams, Stan Musial and Joe DiMaggio) were serving in the military. But he was also the league’s second-worst player in 1950, a miserable season that saw him hit .216 and get traded from the 98-win Yankees to the 58-win St. Louis Browns.Here are the worst finishes by WAR for position players who were also the best in baseball at some point in their career: From the penthouse to the outhouseWorst ranks (from the bottom of MLB) in wins above replacement for players who were best in the league for at least one season, 1901–2017 Bill McKechnie1913321914 WORST SEASON PLAYERNO. 1 SEASONSINV.

That’s especially true for the Angels, who are a single game in back of the Minnesota Twins for the American League’s final wild-card berth and fighting for their postseason lives. But in a funny way, Pujols’ last-place ranking this year is also a kind of testament to how good he’s been over the course of his long, storied career.The bottom of the WAR leaderboard provides a good lesson in the difference between “ability” and “value”. Ability-wise, Pujols isn’t actually MLB’s worst baseball player — that distinction would probably go to a fringe player who was called up at midseason and rarely plays — but he has been its least valuable, in no small part because of the ample opportunities he’s received.3Pujols is third on the team in plate appearances. Simply being bad isn’t enough; in order to even get the chance to finish last in WAR, a player needs to have earned the confidence from management to let him play through a prolonged slump.That’s why, even though no former No. 1 player has sunk as low as Pujols this season, the list of league-worst players by WAR includes plenty of guys who were, at one point, extremely good at baseball. Most notably, the worst player in 1983 was the all-time hit king, Pete Rose, who — unlike Pujols — was eventually benched by the Phillies because of his poor play.

Carlos Gonzalez of the Rockies, the second-worst player this season, ranked as high as No. 15 in 2010. Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez fell from 10th-best in 2009 all the way to sixth-worst this season. And Jose Bautista of the Blue Jays, who clocks in as baseball’s 26th-worst player by WAR this year, ranked third-best as recently as 2011. It takes a great reputation to be afforded such a bad season.Since signing a massive contract with the Angels before the 2012 season, Pujols has had a few solid renaissance seasons, and he was an above-average hitter as recently as last season. So it wasn’t unreasonable for the Angels to expect him to eventually snap out of his funk at some point this season. And he may well end up with 100 runs batted in despite the poor sabermetric numbers — though it would be one of the least valuable 100-RBI seasons ever. Either way, he’s just the most glaring example of a phenomenon that probably won’t go away anytime soon. As long as there are managers dreaming of a turnaround — and ones who lack any better options4Pujols’ contract, which will pay him another $28.5 million per year for the next four seasons, may also play a role. — once-great players like Pujols will always get the chance to play themselves to the bottom of the WAR charts.

Indonésie vague dévacuations en prévision dune éruption volcanique

first_imgIndonésie : vague d’évacuations en prévision d’une éruption volcaniqueIle de Java, Indonésie – Par crainte d’une éruption, les autorités indonésiennes ont élevé à son maximum le niveau d’alerte autour du volcan Merapi. Situé sur l’île de Java, ce volcan a vu son activité fortement augmenter au cours du week-end, et par précaution, les populations vivant à proximité ont été évacuées.Près de 500 secousses sismiques ainsi que des coulées de lave ont été observées ces deux derniers jours, laissant imaginer que le volcan Merapi pourrait entrer en éruption dans les heures à venir. En prévision de ce réveil imminent, le niveau d’alerte a été porté à son niveau le plus élevé ce lundi 25 octobre à 6h00.”Les responsables ont prévenu que s’il entrait en éruption, le magma coulerait sur le flanc gauche”, a indiqué Sri Purnomo, chef du district de Sleman sur l’île de Java. Ce sont alors quelque 11.400 personnes vivant dans un rayon de 10 kilomètres autour du cratère qui seraient confrontées à une évacuation d’urgence, à laquelle elles sont heureusement préparées.Situé à 2.968 mètres d’altitude, le volcan Merapi est le plus actif des 69 volcans en activité en Indonésie. Il a connu sa dernière éruption il y a quatre ans, quelques jours après qu’un meurtrier séisme d’une magnitude de 6,3 a touché la ville de de Yogyakarta et ses environs. “L’énergie est plus forte qu’avant l’éruption de 2006. Nous n’avons pas d’indications permettant de dire qu’une éruption explosive pourrait se produire comme en 1930, mais cela reste possible” a indiqué M. Surono, un vulcanologue. Cette éruption avait provoqué la mort de 1.300 personnes.Le 25 octobre 2010 à 15:22 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Poll More than a third are not planning to report ethnicity pay

first_imgEmployee Benefits poll: More than a third (34%) of respondents are not planning to report their organisation’s ethnicity pay gap data.A straw poll of www.employeebenefits.co.uk readers, which received 29 responses, also found that 31% of HR professionals are planning to report their business’ ethnicity pay gap data at some point in the future, while an equal amount (31%) simply do not know if this is on their organisation’s agenda.Only a minority (3%) have committed to reporting their organisation’s ethnicity pay gap data this year.On 30 January 2019, professional body The Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) voluntarily disclosed its ethnicity pay gap across 243 employees, reporting a 1% mean ethnicity pay gap for hourly pay in 2018. This action formed part of a report aiming to encourage dialogue around diversity and inclusion.The CII’s median ethnicity pay gap is 16% in favour of black, Asian and minority ethnic (Bame) employees. Just under a quarter (23%) of the organisation’s workforce is of ethnic origins, compared to 77% white staff members.Around a quarter (24%) of the CII’s Bame employees are in the organisation’s lowest pay quartile. This compares to 21% in the third pay quartile, 22% in the second and 27% in the highest.For employees who identify as white, 76% are in the lowest pay quartile, 79% are in the third, 78% are in the second and 73% are in the highest pay quartile.Tali Shlomo, people engagement director at the CII, said: “The opportunities and rewards for employers [that] embrace diversity and inclusion are huge, and the insurance profession has an opportunity to take a positive lead by preparing early and addressing diversity issues meaningfully, whether such requirements become statutory or not.”How can small to medium organisations support employees’ mental health?

AdSupported Movie Streamer Film Ahoy Sets Sail in UK EXCLUSIVE

first_imgMovie-streaming site Film Ahoy has launched in the U.K., offering independent titles for free with ads, or for £1 ($1.25) without. Its backers are promising rights holders a 50% split of sales.British filmmaker Dean Fisher of Bow Street Media is behind the platform, which was originally set to launch in 2017 after being announced at the AFM. Technical difficulties prevented it rolling out until now, but the service is now live. The launch lineup stretches to about 200 films spanning various genres including horror, sci-fi, action, and comedy. Fisher’s own Luke Goss-starrer, “Interview With a Hitman,” is one of the action movies on the service alongside other titles including Bruce Lee film “Super Dragon,” “City Rats” with Danny Dyer, and “The Man Inside,” starring David Harewood. Fisher said there is a gap in the market for an ad-supported film offering. “There are so many streaming services at the moment and no one knows which ones are going to survive. But AVOD can be an alternative to the subscription models out there,” he told Variety. “There are only so many subscription services people can afford, and some people can’t afford any, so there needs to be an alternative, and that’s what I have tried to create.” Related Popular on Variety Bruce Lee’s Daughter Says Quentin Tarantino ‘Could Shut Up’ About Her Father’s Portrayal (EXCLUSIVE) Quentin Tarantino Defends ‘Arrogant’ Portrayal of Bruce Lee in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

In a way we want to create an additional market.”In terms of the deal for rights holders, Film Ahoy will share revenues but is not offering minimum guarantees. The films on the platform are not carried exclusively. Fisher said his aim was to reach 1 million views a month in the first year of operation.Some indie producers have been burned working with emerging platforms, but Fisher, who is wrapping on “Break” with Rutger Hauer, said his being a producer means that’s not the case with his platform. “Because I’m a filmmaker myself I will make sure the filmmaker gets a good deal,” he said.Looking ahead, the Film Ahoy founder said he would like to work directly with filmmakers as well as picking up titles from sales agents. “What I’d like eventually is more filmmakers to come forward and put their titles directly on Film Ahoy. Some might not have sales agents, but might have a really good film,” he said. “That’s something filmmakers should do more often – put the films out themselves on platforms.”last_img read more

On the left side, there’s an RJ45 Ethernet port, one Thunderbolt 3 port, one USB Type-C port, two USB 3.1 ports and an SD card slot, while the right side features a security lock slot, two more USB 3.1 ports and four separate audio inputs. The backside also has ports, including a place for the power jack, an HDMI port and two Mini DisplayPorts. Display The Eon17-X’s 17.3-inch, 1920 x 1080 display is dimmer and duller than the screens on most premium gaming laptops, but it does clock a 144-Hz refresh rate. In the live-action trailer for Mulan, the titular character’s red-and-purple robe was decently colorful. However, I couldn’t see any detail in the small tables on each side of her because the display was so dim. However, it was sharp enough to detail each strand of Mulan’s hair. I booted up Shadow of the Tomb Raider and spawned in a mud-covered wall. The point of the wall is to hide me, but I could barely see myself; the dim screen blended some details together. The color didn’t exactly pop, either, but the way the sun hit the grass around me still looked photogenic. I could also spot the sharp details of the leaves in the bushes. The Eon17-X’s 17.3-inch, 1920 x 1080displayis dimmer and duller than the screens on most premium gaming laptops, but it does clock a 144-Hz refresh rate. According to our colorimeter, the Eon17-X’s panel covered 120% of the sRGB color gamut, which isn’t inherently bad, but it is for the price and in comparison to the 146% premium-gaming-laptop average. The Alienware Area-51m was no better, at 118%, but the MSI GT75 Titan covered an impressive 178%. MORE: Laptops with the Most Colorful Screens At 211 nits, the Eon17-X’s display is inexcusably dim for a gaming laptop, especially against the 289-nit category average. While the Area-51m (284 nits) and the GT75 Titan (271 nits) also fell short of the average, they came closer. Keyboard and Touchpad Typing on the Eon17-X’s keyboard was an undeniably comfortable experience, thanks to the thick keys and the cozy spacing between them. It was also decently clicky. I blazed through the 10FastFingers.com typing test at 78 words per minute, flying above my 70-wpm average. The keys travel at 1.5 millimeters, landing at the doorstep of our preferred 1.5 to 2.0 mm, and required a meaty 79 grams of force to actuate. The RGB lighting, however, is quite disappointing. For one, the lights barely seep through the deck, and to top it off, the keyboard has only three-zone lighting, which is insulting when you’re shelling out four grand. The lighting can (barely) be customized via the Control Center 2.0’s LED Device tab. The Eon17-X’s 4.2 x 2.4-inch touchpad is soft and accompanied by a solid pair of discrete buttons. But, as mentioned earlier, the fingerprint reader is embedded. That cuts off some real estate, which is frustrating. But thanks to the laptop’s Windows 10 Precision drivers, gestures like two-finger scrolling and three-finger tabbing worked like a charm. Audio The Eon17-X’s top-firing speakers produced solid, decently loud audio, blasting Lund’s “BlkBird” across a small office. The speakers captured the depth of the acoustic guitar that opens the song, and when the vocals cut in, they sounded crisp and bright. However, although the bass was decent, it could have been deeper, and the sound was occasionally muddy when instruments clashed. When I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the speakers were actually a little too loud — uncomfortable even. However, the volume was enough to overwhelm the laptop’s blaring fan, and I could hear everything in the environment around me, from the guard’s footsteps to the annoying cawing of a bird nearby. The guards who were convincing each other that they were going to find me did so in a loud, albeit a little sharp, banter. But when I stabbed some dude in the spine with a pickax, I heard a satisfying, meaty crunch. MORE: The Best Headsets for Immersive Gaming You can tune the speakers through Creative Labs’ Sound Blaster Connect app, which offers a fairly deep feature wheel. It includes a full equalizer and a library of presets, like Concert, Cinema, Gaming and even ones specific to certain games. You can customize those presets with provided dials, labeled Surround Sound, Crystalizer, Bass, Smart Volume and Dialogue. You can also make your own preset. The Concert preset sounded the best for music, but I had to turn the reverb off to normalize it, and the Gaming preset was good for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Gaming, Graphics and VR Powered by an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPU with 8GB of VRAM, the Eon17-X ran Shadow of the Tomb Raider (Highest, 1080p) at a smooth 80 frames per second as I slid back to back on mud-covered walls, choking out baddies with my bow. On the Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark (Very High, 1080p), the Eon17-X nailed 81 fps, flying over the 64-fps premium-gaming-laptop average while also landing between the MSI GT75 Titan (76 fps) and the Alienware Area-51m (92 fps), which sport the same GPU. The Eon17-X ran Shadow of the Tomb Raider at a smooth 80 frames per second as I slid back to back on mud-covered walls, choking out baddies with my bow. The Eon17-X fell slightly behind on the Hitman benchmark (Ultra, 1080p), averaging 125 fps, which is above the category average (105 fps) but short of the Area-51m (143 fps) and the GT75 Titan (140 fps). On the Grand Theft Auto V benchmark (Very High, 1080p), the Eon17-X hit 97 fps, once again sailing past the average for premium gaming laptops (78 fps) and landing between the GT75 Titan (90 fps) and the Area-51m (105 fps). Unsurprisingly, the Eon17-X and the GT75 Titan scored a perfect 11 on the StreamVR Performance Test, skidding by the 10.9 category average. Performance Underneath the hood of this beast lies a desktop-level Intel Core i9-9900K processor with 16GB of RAM, which smoothly powered through 40 Google Chrome tabs and five 1080p YouTube videos while running Shadow of the Tomb Raider in the background. On the Geekbench 4.1 overall performance test, the Eon17-X scored 27,347, climbing over the 21,677 premium-gaming-laptop average. The GT75 Titan’s Core i9-8950HK CPU (24,569) fell slightly behind, but the Area-51m’s Intel Core i9-9900K CPU excelled, with an average of 32,591. MORE: Best and Worst Laptop Gaming Brands The Eon17-X completed the HandBrake benchmark in 6 minutes and 53 seconds, speeding past the category average (9:45). It was over a minute faster than the GT75 Titan (8:00), but the Area-51m (6:00) was quicker. The Eon17-X’s 500GB Samsung 970 EVO Plus SSD copied 4.97GB of data in 9 seconds. That translates to 565 megabytes per second, which is a decent speed but slower than the average for premium gaming laptops (750 MBps). The Area-51m’s 1TB SSD (1,272 MBps) and the GT75 Titan’s 512GB SSD (848 MBps) were significantly faster. Battery Life This much power comes at a cost, and that cost is battery life. When the Eon-17X continuously surfed the web over Wi-Fi at 150 nits of brightness, it died after 1 hour and 50 minutes, which is over an hour less than the current premium-gaming-laptop average (3:17). As expected, the Area-51m (2:36) and the GT75 Titan (2:20) crawled behind the average as well. If you want long battery life in a gaming laptop, look at machines that sport Max-Q GPUs, like the Gigabyte Aero 15 Classic or the Razer Blade 15. Webcam The Eon-17X’s 1080p webcam is surprisingly good. I could see some detail in my stubble and even in my hair. It caught the color in my red shirt, as well as the green in the file cabinets behind me. However, it failed to manage the contrast; the ceiling lights were way too bright, and everything else was too dark in the photo. We’d still recommend that you purchase an external webcam if you plan on streaming. Heat For a monster this size, the Eon17-X handles heat pretty well. After I played Shadow of the Tomb Raider for 15 minutes, the underside measured 108 degrees Fahrenheit, which isn’t too far from our 95-degree comfort threshold. The center of the keyboard and touchpad hit 99 and 82 degrees, respectively. The hottest it got was 112 degrees, on the right underside of the hinge’s vent. On our normal heat test, the underside reached 101 degrees after the laptop streamed a 15-minute 1080p video, while the keyboard hit 102 degrees and the touchpad measured 92 degrees. Software and Warranty There’s really only one piece of software on board the Eon-17X, and that’s the Control Center 2.0. Here you can customize the output for your CPU, GPU, fan and memory. There are also presets, like Power Saving, Quiet, Entertainment and Performance, which automatically adjust the power output. The Eon-17X’s software is so scant that it even lacks Windows 10 bloatware, which is a great thing. Origin PC includes a one-year limited warranty on the Eon-17X. Bottom Line Origin PC’s Eon17-X is a tank, on both the outside and the inside. It powered through everything I threw at it with incredible performance, its keyboard was incredibly comfortable to type on and its speakers serenaded my ears with some bangin’ tunes. However, I can’t look past its crazy-dim 17.3-inch display, its low-quality design and its wild price. If you’re already shelling out a ton of money, you might as well get the MSI GT75 Titan ($4,199), which offers a more colorful display, a mechanical keyboard and a higher-quality design. But overall, the Eon17-X is a solid premium gaming laptop with super-competitive performance.

Rights groups says Syrian refugees stranded at Jordan border

first_img Sponsored Stories Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Comments   Share   Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Top Stories AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordanian border restrictions have left hundreds of Syrians refugees stranded in a remote desert area, a leading international rights group said Wednesday, urging Jordan to let them enter the country.About 2,500 Syrians were stuck there just inside Jordan in mid-April, the New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a report based on satellite images, aid agency reports and refugee testimony. The number of stranded Syrians dropped to 1,000 in late May after Jordan allowed some to move out, the report said. 5 people who need to visit the Ultrastar Multi-tainment Center Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies 5 treatments for adult scoliosis The group’s regional director, Nadim Houry, said that Jordan has gone to great lengths to help refugees, but that this is “no excuse to abandon newer arrivals in remote areas for weeks without effective protection and regular aid access.”Government spokesman Mohammed Momani said Jordan “continues to adopt an open border policy” in line with procedures worked out with the relevant international organizations.Jordan hosts about 630,000 Syrian war refugees, out of almost 4 million who have fled their country since 2011. The Jordanian government says a total of 1.4 million Syrians live in Jordan, including those who came before 2011, and make up 20 percent of Jordan’s population.Human Rights Watch said Jordan gradually tightened entry restrictions over the past two years. Currently, two informal crossings into sparsely populated eastern Jordan — the area where the Syrians are stranded — are the only entry points for most Syrians, the group said.The rights group said Jordan’s policy has fluctuated in recent months. In October, about 4,000 Syrians were stuck in the desert area, but between December and March, Jordan allowed refugees to enter for screening and eventual transport to a closed refugee camp, the group said. It said that by March, Jordan again prevented many Syrians from entering the country. The group also urged the international community to assume greater responsibility for the refugees. Countries outside the region, including the United States and the European Union, should absorb more Syrian refugees, it said. Currently, most Syrian refugees live in Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

HIV travel restrictions are inhumane Kenya Airways

first_imgKenya Airways’ chief executive has signed on to fight against “inhumane” laws that prevent people living with HIV/Aids from travelling freely.Joining 44 other bosses from global organisations, the World Aids Day CEO campaign turns the spotlight and calls on countries with laws restrict entry, stay and travel people based on their HIV status.According to GBC Health, there are currently 45 countries across the world with laws still in place that impose travel restrictions based on HIV status.   The airline’s chief executive Dr Titus Naikuni said freedom of movement is “one of the inalienable human rights” and described discrimination against health status as “retrogressive and oppressive”.“This is why we have added our voice to this campaign,” Dr Naikuni said.Earlier this year, delegates at the International AIDS Conference said travel restrictions imposed on people with HIV was a result of fear and should be rescinded immediately.Click here for more information.
