The 2022 Open Climate reporting initiative training

A group of 10 journalists went through a 3 day residential training in Kampala on reporting on climate change and environmental crime with support from the Centre for Investigative journalism.

The Fellows in this year’s fellowship were;

  1. Chowoo Willy
  2. Racheal pAKRWOTH from News 24/7
  3. Gerald Tenywa from New vISION
  4. Okello Jesus Ojara
  5. Jamila Mulindwa Nuwaha
  6. Kei Emmanuel Duku
  7. Patrick Jaramogi a freelance investigative journalist
  8. Gloria Atuhairwe
  9. Joel Kaguta
  10. Stuart Tibaweswa

These 10 reporters were selected on the basis of their story pitches out of a pool of over 70 that applied for this fellowship.

The fellows were first taken through an introductory lecture on climate change and environmental crime by Dr. Daniel Dumba, a seasoned climate change, and environmental Science Specialist.

This was a crucial first stage of the training process so the fellows could understand the intricate nature of climate change statistics and data.

Because a lot of the reporting on climate change involves data, the fellows were taken through a practical lesson on the latest data gathering and analysis tools available on the internet. This session was led by Deputy Executive director of the African Institute for Investigative journalism Raymond Mujuni.

Senior Investigative journalists then put on their trainer’s hats and joined us to take the fellows through various topics, among them; the art of storytelling, Investigative filmmaking, Story writing, Editing, Fact-checking, and Solution based journalism among others.

On top of speaking to senior investigative journalists, the fellows got a chance to interact with celebrated environmentalists William Amanzuru and Rebecca Sandoval who shared their experiences in the field of conservation.

Just as learning never stops, the learning went on into the night but this time in a more relaxed atmosphere, under the stars around a fire.

A fireplace dinner that gave the fellows an opportunity to interact with one another and also hear from senior journalists while enjoying a meal together.

Some Registry clean-up utilities also include defragmentation tools. These basically make Registry files as contiguous as possible and make Registry contents as compact as possible. So running these defrag tools can produce only modest performance gains. Given the vulnerabilities that the registry is open to, it would make sense to clean the registry from time to time. But a number of complications can arise if one is not careful with the process, especially if one is doing it manually.

Essentially, this sweeps out remaining references to items that are either no longer used, or have been replaced by more-current entries. Corruption is a nasty and often unexpected problem that occurs in hard drives and results in the loss of some of your data, or worse, your entire hard drive. It’s a problem that plagues anyone who’s unfortunate enough to encounter it, and it’s a very real possibility for anyone who uses a hard drive.

Best dating sites

Many local newspapers had online personals in the mid 1990s but were bought out by these big dating sites. From some of the comments it really shows how desperate dating sites are for money that they even advertise in comment sections. You have a much better chance going to local events and you will probably spend less than what you would spend on an online dating site.

Other apps have indicated that they might actually move closer to Facebook. For example, Bumble, founded by a former Tinder executive, said they had already reached out to Facebook regarding how to collaborate. And, “One thing everyone seems to agree on is that Facebook’s effectively endorsing online dating will be a huge legitimization event for the industry,” says Jefferies Internet analyst Brent Thill. According to Amanda Bradford, chief executive of The League, an elite dating app, “Facebook is validating that dating is a high-tech industry with really interesting and hard problems to solve. Still, Facebook could face some obstacles in building enough separation between the dating service and the legacy social network; some users might not like having both activities live on one app.

After giving him some time to cope with his cat passing away, he made plans to see her again and she was thrilled. He canceled the date last minute again because he said his grandma had died. Although this seemed too tragic to be true, she gave him the benefit of the doubt that he was telling the truth. Additionally, if someone is giving you a checklist right away of all of the things they want in a future partner, this may be a red flag for some controlling behaviors. It’s one thing if they express their non-negotiables but it’s another thing entirely if they are listing required traits. If you feel like someone is already trying to change things about you to suit their needs, that’s not okay. How someone initiates a conversation with you will say a lot about how they view you as a person and how they might treat you as a partner.

Online dating users are more likely to describe their overall experience with using dating sites or apps in positive, rather than negative, terms. Some 57% of Americans who have ever used a dating site or app say their own personal experiences with these platforms have been very or somewhat positive. Still, about four-in-ten online daters (42%) describe their personal experience with dating sites or apps as at least somewhat negative. Happily, there are some dating services that are looking to overcome the vanity. For example, Hinge matches people based on personality and preferences and lets you create a more interesting and rounded profile to draw people in. One of the few dating sites designed for affairs, Ashley Madison connects users for discreet encounters.

Basically all a guy like you has to do is instantly grab her attention in a memorable way with both your profile and your messages, then spend the least amount of time possible convincing her to meet you in person. For those who are hesitant to enter the online dating world for reasons related to safety or awkward conversation lulls, Double aims to take the pressure off with Double dates as opposed to one-on-one.

State things that are really important to you and be done with it. Connor turned an attempt at small talk into a rant about “gold-digging whores,” and the dating app was not having it. Matt- But what about when you said you would meet me in real life and we would lose our virginity together. One Love educates young people about healthy and unhealthy relationships, empowering them to identify and avoid abuse and learn how to love better. If you are going somewhere that serves alcoholic beverages, most bartenders are using secret codes to help customers signal, privately, when they need help if they’re getting harassed or feeling unsafe on a bad date.

With no financial requirement, free sites will naturally attract a greater proportion of people who are not really committed to finding a genuine relationship. Memberships you gain additional features such as being able to send more messages and receiving event discounts.

The training focused on skills-based learning centered on data journalism, mobile journalism, introduction to investigative reporting and producing compelling investigative journalism among others.

The 15 fellows who graduated into the fellowship were selected from a large pool of applicants who demonstrated through their story pitches a keen interest to produce compelling investigative reporting in the areas of corruption and accountability, climate change and environmental crime, human rights violations and access to justice.

The Executive Director for the African Institute For Investigative Journalism Solomon Serwanjja congratulated the fellows who started the year-long fellowship upon their selection and urged them to do investigative journalism in public interest.

Solomon Serwanjja Executive Director AIIJ

“All good investigative journalism is done in the defense of public interest.

We need to increase our ability to bring the powerful to account through our stories and to offer the voiceless a voice”

he said as he opened the training.

The fellows were given an introduction to investigative journalism toolkit by Raymond Mujuni, the Deputy Executive Director of AIIJ.  He took them through the features of investigative journalism and the considerations the fellows would take for writing and producing compelling reporting. He also taught the fellows on how to research for investigative journalism.

The fellows also interacted with rekonwned investigative journalists like Frederick Musisi, Canary Mugume and Joseph Beyanga.

After the three-day training, the fellows will now competitively pitch to have their stories funded and executed.

The Annual Investigative Journalism Fellowship is the first of its kind boutique training centered on improving investigative reporting in newsrooms and local communities. It centers on equipping journalists with both skills, training and exposure combined with grants to pursue dedicated investigative reporting.

The Institute is conducting the training in partnership with the Media Innovation Centre of the Aga Khan University.

A call for justice. ‘’Targeted’’ a year later

By Grace Birungi

‘’I am not looking for compensation but justice,’’ Ashraf Kasirye, a journalist who was targeted during the 2020/21 Uganda election, said.

During a dialogue organized by the African Institute for Investigative journalism (AIIJ) on 18th May 2022 at Golden Tulip hotel, candid conversations on justice for journalists that were “targeted” during elections took center stage.

It was walking down memory lane and reopening discussions on demanding for arrest and trial of security officers who violated the rights of journalists. At the peak of the 2021 General Election in Uganda, the African Institute for Investigative journalism published a documentary “targeted” that showcased chilling narratives of journalists who were tortured.

A panel discussion moderated by Solomon Serwanjja, Executive Director of AIIJ, centered on the lives of journalists who were featured in the documentary a year later.

An emotional moment it was for Irene Abalo, a journalist with the Daily Monitor who to date walks on a crutch as she faced her tormentors.  “Every time I see a man dressed in a UPDF uniform; I get traumatized. Life has been different for me. For months I could not support myself including going to the washroom. I cannot practice journalism as I did. I am only reduced to a voice-over artist to read scripts for NTV Panorama.” She said.

Ashraf Kasirye, a Ghetto TV journalist who had his head covered, explained that he can’t stand noise, wind, or sunlight, which is why he covers his head.

 “Media in Uganda is not respected by people who lead us, to an extent that, when a security officer comes out to shoot or beat a journalist, like how Enock Baine who shot me, nothing is done,” Ashraf concluded.

Daniel Lutaaya, a journalist with NBS, said if what happened to them had happened elsewhere in the world, something would be done. ‘’If you think what you are doing is right, why do you fear cameras,” he added.

Daniel concluded by saying, press freedom in Uganda is possible even when they will not see it, but it will come.

Derrick Wandera, a journalist with the Daily monitor, advised that, the only thing that can be done to stop violence is using a pen and paper to put faces to it and when it happens, the perpetrators will be isolated.

Uganda People’s Defense Forces spokesperson, Afande Felix Kulaigye, who was the keynote speaker apologized on behalf of the UPDF to the journalists that were tortured. “I am annoyed by incidents such as these that involve men in uniform beating up journalists. I condemn this strongly and it has been a part of my teaching series for soldiers in military colleges”

Benjamin Katana, a human rights lawyer expressed his concern about how men and women in uniform chose to have a side in politics, and whoever is not on their side is targeted and dealt with as an enemy of the state.

‘’It doesn’t call for journalists to be battered. What is the role of regulations? They don’t even wait for you to go through the processes of the law. It is an illusion for journalists to think their rights will be respected in a country where human rights are not respected,’’ Benjamin said.

Ruth Ssekindi, the head of the Uganda Human Rights Commission added that there is a need for more training and sensitization, and background checks before the recruitment of officers.

Torture and imprisonment have deprived many journalists around the world of their watchdog role, and nothing has been done to hold the perpetrators accountable. A lot more demands for journalist justice must be made through advocacy and publicizing atrocities against journalists.
