Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday formally proposed a ban on bump stocks, the firearms accessory that allows semi-automatic guns to fire more quickly, similar to a fully automatic weapon.The proposal seeks to fulfill a promise made by President Donald Trump after the Feb. 14 massacre at a Florida high school and comes a day before a protest march in Washington organized by survivors of the Florida shooting.Previously an obscure gun accessory, bump stocks became infamous after the device was linked to the Las Vegas concert massacre on Oct. 1. The gunman owned multiple such devices, law enforcement authorities said. Fifty-eight people were killed in the attack, the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history.“After the senseless attack in Las Vegas, this proposed rule is a critical step in our effort to reduce the threat of gun violence that is in keeping with the Constitution and the laws passed by Congress,” Sessions said in a statement.“I look forward … [Read more...] about Sessions Proposes a Ban on Bump Stocks
Speakers discuss state of the news media in Pakistan 0SHARES Share Tweet Email PHOTO: FILE KARACHI: The talk ‘Making and Breaking the News’, featuring journalist Ghazi Salahuddin, anchor and analyst Huma Baqai, Fasi Zaka and BBC’s Pakistan correspondent Secunder Kermani was the highlight of the second day of the Karachi Literature Festival (KLF).

From hackathons and data journalism to brand journalism and the use of drones, the past few years have seen a lot of experimentation with digital technologies in Latin America. And within this scene, there is an emerging interest in digital storytelling which is shaking up the media sector and causing journalists like me to rethink the way we work. Latin America lacks the public institutions which, in many other parts of the world, finance films and other narrative projects. Because resources are limited, Latin American storytellers (whether journalists or filmmakers) have been turning to the Internet in order to engage as diverse an audience as possible for the lowest possible cost. While their embrace of the Internet may have arisen out of necessity, it's allowing creators to produce new forms of content and establish new relationships with their audiences. This, in turn, is giving a new dynamic to an old friend of journalism – the documentary. Long documentary tradition … [Read more...] about Latin America’s growing appetite for digital storytelling
In the end, the man who had survived the Holocaust and Stalinism in his home country could only see one option: exile. At the beginning of March, the 79-year-old Hungarian-Jewish author Akos Kertesz applied for asylum in Canada. In an American-Hungarian weekly newspaper he made his position clear: "It was a very difficult decision for me to make because the Hungarian language is my life. Hungary is my birth country, my home. I hope that I can one day to return to a democratic, tolerant and humane Hungary." Since then the writer has remained silent. An EU country where the political climate forces artists to emigrate? The case of Akos Kertesz has made waves in Hungary but also in other countries. Kertesz' literary colleague living in Berlin, Gyorgy Dalos, has on the one hand called it a "tragic, isolated case," while on the other had it is "representative of the high level of hysteria which dominates Hungarian politics and culture." Over the course of the last few years, Akos Kertesz … [Read more...] about Hungary’s thinkers protest cultural suppression
