November 5, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Murder investigation stalls five months ater death of community radio director Zakia Zaki News News Situation getting more critical for Afghan women journalists, report says News Reporters Without Borders today condemned the lack of progress in the Afghan official investigation into the murder exactly five months ago of Zakia Zaki, head of the radio station Sada-e-Sulh (Peace Radio).Police have arrested six suspects but released four. The security forces have not made any serious investigation that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the killers and the family and colleagues of Zakia Zaki fear that the authorities may have abandoned the investigation altogether, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.At least three men broke into her home in Jabalussaraj, Parwan province, north of Kabul, overnight on 5-6 June 2007 and fired seven bullets into her in front of her two-year-old son.Zaki, who also ran a school, used to say of the radio that it was a “community home for the residents, the only place where they dared express themselves freely”. The journalist and her staff were regularly threatened by local warlords.“At the time of her death, the interior minister caller her murder an ‘act of terror’ and promised that those responsible would be punished, but today nothing or almost nothing has been done,” said the organisation. “It is the duty of the authorities in Kabul to carry out a real investigation so that the murder of this courageous and excellent woman should not go unpunished.”French humanitarian Renaud Helfer-Aubrac, a former organiser of the French association Droit de parole, who helped the journalist set up the radio in 2001, has written a tribute to this “resistance figure”:”In Afghanistan, running an independent radio station can be fatalZakia Zaki was a mother, school teacher and editor-in-chief of Afghanistan’s first independent radio station in the post-Taliban era, all at the same time. She was also a free speech activist who paid for it with her life.“Zakia has been gunned down.”It was not immediate. It took me three seconds. Three seconds to finally put a face to the name. I hung up. Tears came to my eyes. I felt dismay, sadness and anger. Then sadness again.Afghanistan, September 2001Would the editor-in-chief we were going to see in a few minutes feel humiliated at the sight of the rudimentary studio equipment we had just assembled? What use would she make of this radio station? Where would she find the authority to impose herself in a lasting way, in a social context I could not really grasp?Every day, we were discovering a bit more of Afghanistan, like film extras hired for a single scene on the set of a big production, enthralled by the ballet of men and women whose roles and functions we did not understand. We were there for a few weeks. To install the radio station’s equipment, ensure the station’s independence, recruit and train a team, and then leave.An independent radio station, one that was free to say what it wanted. One that took a position. In Afghanistan, as elsewhere, running an independent radio station could be fatal. From the outset, the position of the NGO Droit de Parole (Right to Speak) was to choose a woman as the station’s editor-in-chief. A “radio station by women, for women,” was the motto.Solving the equation was not so simple. Commander Massoud had just been assassinated and the eyes of the world were turned to this nation with a troubled history. What would be the profile of a woman able to impose herself and guarantee a firm editorial line, and at the same time speak confidently on the air? The answer became clear as we strolled through villages in the Panjshir valley. A school teacher.There was movement outside the studio. Two blue veils got out of car and walked towards us.The veils entered the studio. A veil was removed. Zakia Zaki looked at us. She smiled at us. A calm, warm smile of the kind school teachers know how to give. There was benevolence in this look. For a moment I became the schoolboy I once was and perhaps had never ceased to be. It was obvious. The radio station was hers, for her fellow women. This was on the eve of the first US air strikes. From then onwards, Zakia Zaki was the editor-in-chief of Radio Solh (Peace Radio). She gave her life for it.Zakia Zaki was gunned down, probably at the behest of minor warlords. She was like a resistance fighter, one who fought for her ideas.I had made her a promise I would no longer be able to keep. I had promised her we would meet again in France or Afghanistan. There was a woman I set on introducing to her. My grandmother, Lucie Aubrac*. My enthusiasm for the idea of this meeting made her laugh.”Renaud Helfer-AubracHumanitarian aid worker* Lucie Aubrac was a member of the French resistance against the German occupation and the Vichy regime during the Second World War.

Although Molly Brown was snubbed in the category of Best Musical in the 1961 Tony Awards race, leading lady Tammy Grimes picked up a trophy (shockingly in the featured category!). On the big screen, Debbie Reynolds received an Oscar nomination in the role. Three-time Tony nominee Dick Scanlan has written this new adaptation of the musical, reworking Morris’ book and adding previously-unheard songs by Willson. Interestingly, Scanlan first made a name for himself when he adapted Morris’ screenplay for Thoroughly Modern Millie into a Tony-winning hit Broadway musical. Molly Brown is back! The long-brewing new staging of the 1960 Broadway musical The Unsinkable Molly Brown is ready to set sail. Directed and choreographed by Tony winner Kathleen Marshall, the revival will kick off the 2014-2015 season at the Denver Center Theatre Company in September. Based on the real rags-to-riches story of one-time Denver resident Molly Brown, a famous survivor of the Titanic tragedy, The Unsinkable Molly Brown originally featured a book by Richard Morris and score by Meredith Willson, creator of The Music Man. View Comments No casting has been announced for the Denver premiere. Kerry O’Malley and Marc Kudisch (as love interest J.J. Brown) headlined a reading of the show in Denver in 2009, and Sutton Foster later played the role in New York City readings, opposite both Craig Bierko and Kudisch at different times. The Unsinkable Molly Brown will play from September 12 through October 26, 2014 at the Denver Center. Will it swim to Broadway next? Stay tuned!
After a rare weekend off from competition, the No. 3 USC men’s tennis team is back at home to face No. 17 Wake Forest in the first ever meeting between the two programs.Coming off one of the biggest wins in program history, a road win at UCLA for the first time since 1991, USC coach Peter Smith is wary of a potential letdown against a strong and deep Demon Deacon (5-2, 2-0) squad.Trap · Freshman JT Sundling and the Trojans will try to avoid a letdown against Wake Forest after beating UCLA on the road last week. – Geo Tu | Daily Trojan“Yes, I am worried about a letdown. Wake is a team capable of beating any team in the country,” Smith said. “You only have to look at their match with No. 2 Tennessee to realize the potential they have. They are strong at the top and have good depth.”The Demon Deacons are coming off a 4-3 home loss to the Volunteers. In that match, Wake Forest’s No. 20 Tripper Carleton suffered his first singles loss of the season against No. 4 Tennessee singles player John-Patrick Smith.Wake Forest No. 67 Steve Forman is the reigning ACC Player of the Week, who along with Carleton will challenge the top of the Trojan lineup. The Demon Deacons have two other players ranked in singles and one ranked doubles team.The Trojans (12-1, 0-0) understand that Wake Forest is a formidable opponent and say they and will not be preoccupied with the possibility of a setback.“Coaches worry more about that when they prepare the team,” junior Jaak Poldma said of a potential letdown. “As players, we don’t worry about that, we just have to keep going as before. We know this is an important match.”The Trojans’ defeat of the Bruins propelled them in the rankings as they moved up from the No. 5 slot to the No. 3 slot, jumping ahead of No. 4 Ohio State and No. 5 Texas, who gave USC its only loss of the season.For the third time in four weeks, a Trojan has been named the Pac-10 men’s tennis Player of the Week. This week, sophomore Steve Johnson was honored for his dominating singles win and strong doubles performance with senior Robert Farah at UCLA.Johnson joins sophomore Daniel Nguyen and Poldma as Trojan recipients of Player of the Week honors.In the midst of the second half of the season, the road will not get any easier, and the Trojans do not plan on dwelling on their positive accomplishments so far. As they have all season, they will continue to focus on improving their play, starting with Wake Forest at Marks Stadium today.“We are a little more than halfway through the season,” Smith said. “So many good things have happened to us, but we can’t forget that we have to keep getting one day better everyday.”

How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire GROVE OUT OF THE WOODSPitcher Michael Grove, the Dodgers’ second-round draft pick in June, said he has already thrown batting practice to live hitters as he returns to competition following Tommy John surgery. He will head to Camelback Ranch this week to take part in instructional league activities.Dr. Keith Meister replaced the ulnar collateral ligament in Grove’s right elbow in May 2017. The 21-year-old pitcher missed all of his junior season with the University of West Virginia.“It was about eight months before I was allowed to pick up a baseball,” he said. “There were days you had no motivation at all.”Related Articles Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies LOS ANGELES – Dave Roberts said it isn’t quite decision-making time for his luxuriant collection of bullpen arms, but the Dodgers manager acknowledged that it’s getting close. Six games remain in the regular season and the Dodgers can clinch a playoff berth as early as Wednesday.That’s not a lot of time to get a look at the two relievers Roberts still wants to see more from: Josh Fields and Tony Cingrani.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter. Be the best Dodger fan you can be by getting daily intel on your favorite team. Subscribe here.The two pitchers “have been hurt a majority of the year, so for them to have an opportunity, they’ve got to pitch and we have to see what we have,” Roberts said. “The calendar is running short, so I think those are two guys that you have to give opportunities to, to see what you have.”Roberts burned through six relievers in the final two innings of Saturday’s win over the Padres, including Fields and Cingrani for three batters each. Fields, a right-hander, retired all three while striking out two. Cingrani, a left-hander, allowed two singles and hit a batter. Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Fields also appeared in Sunday’s game, his first back-to-back appearances in the majors since returning from a bout with right shoulder inflammation. He pitched a scoreless seventh inning, striking out one batter. In 44 games this season, Fields is 2-2 with a 2.25 earned-run average, and 33 strikeouts in 40 innings.Cingrani has thrown only 17 pitches this month, including eight for strikes, after missing more than three months with shoulder inflammation. Scott Alexander, Alex Wood and Caleb Ferguson figure to be the Dodgers’ top left-handed relievers going forward.Roberts said that Cingrani’s struggles “may be a combination of rust and mechanical (problems). … Honestly I don’t know.”By singling out Fields and Cingrani, Roberts acknowledged that the majority of the Dodgers’ internal evaluations are complete. The postseason bullpen decisions should be mostly clear-cut if the Dodgers advance.“We’re not at that point yet but as we play the next (six) games I think it’ll be quite clear,” Roberts said. Grove, a 21-year-old right-hander, said he threw a couple bullpen sessions for scouts at this year’s Big 12 Conference tournament. Jonah Rosenthal, the Dodgers’ area scout who signed Grove, did not watch either session. Yet the Dodgers saw enough to reward Grove with the 68th overall selection.When first-round pick J.T. Ginn chose to attend college, Grove became the Dodgers’ highest pick to sign a contract.ALSOChase Utley acknowledged a standing ovation from the top step of the dugout prior to his final regular-season home game. Utley, who will retire after the season, was also greeted with a standing ovation prior to his first plate appearance in the sixth inning. He waved his helmet to the crowd, grounded out to second base, and was applauded on his way back to the dugout. … Utley flied out in the eighth inning and finished 0 for 2. … Sunday’s announced attendance of 50,250 brought the Dodgers’ regular-season total to 3,809,684 million. It’s the second-largest attendance in franchise history and the eighth-largest in National League history. … Fernando Valenzuela, Steve Garvey, and Don Newcombe were recognized on the field as the inaugural group of “Legends of Dodger Baseball.” Each will receive a plaque next season honoring their careers that will be on permanent display at Dodger Stadium.
