first_img Saudi media silent on RSF complaint against MBS News Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more January 16, 2015 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Concern about blogger’s condition after second flogging postponed Sentenced to ten years in prison and 1,000 lashes last November, the young blogger was due to receive the second round of 50 lashes after Friday prayers today but the doctor who examined him this morning decided that he could not endure more flogging for the time being because he has not recovered from the first session aweek ago.The second session has therefore been postponed until next Friday.“Saudi Arabia can do longer deny the gravity of this flogging, a barbaric punishment that is contrary to international law,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “In view of Badawi’s alarming condition after 50 lashes, how can the Saudi authorities envisage inflicting another 950 lashes? It is a death sentence. He would not survive. Saudi Arabia must immediately rescind this sentence to avoid doing something that cannot be undone.”The international community is showing increasing concern about Badawi’s fate. After statements by the United States, the European Union and Canada (where Badawi’s family has found refuge), the United Nations have now called on the Saudi authorities to stop the flogging and give Badawi a pardon.After launching a petition for Badawi’s release that has been signed by more than 30,000 people, Reporters Without Borders joined Amnesty International France in protesting outside the Saudi Embassy in Paris yesterday. An RWB representative managed to give the petition to an embassy official.

Don’t be the weird guy in your office

first_imgI suppose we’re all weird in our own way. But, then there’s those people who take weird to the next level. There’s a great askreddit thread that asks, “What does the weird guy in your office do that creeps you out?” This is the guy you don’t want to be. Here are some of my favorites. (I’ve edited some of the harsher language…)“I put my meatball sandwich in the office refrigerator someone ate the meatballs out of the sandwich but not the sandwich. thats pretty creepy to me.” – SwanchSwabzMaybe he’s on a low carb diet.“Close talker. Really close. You back up and he follows you.” – LittleLarryThis is a highly aggressive close talker.“In my old job a guy came in ~5.30 in the morning and would beat the sh*t out of the vending machine to try to get free food.” – ZeruviIt’s always feels good to be the first one in the office, but not for this reason.“I work tech support help desk, the weird guy in our office is outwardly social and goes to the gym 3 times a week. F*ing monster.” – beefstendersI guess being the normal guy in an office full of nerds makes you the weirdo.“I am probably the weird guy in the office, to be honest. I have no idea what people might think I do that’s creepy though, but it might be the farting.” – warpusYeah that’ll do it.“Use to sit next to this guy who would eat full packets of mayonnaise at 8am. He would then turn to tell me something while his mouth of full of mayonnaise.” – AnElectricForkNo.“He will not touch food. He eats his sandwich with the baggie still wrapped around as much of it as possible. He eats bags of popcorn or chips with a spoon. He eats his bagel with a fork stabbed through it. Very strange, but also highly entertaining.” – undercanopy813Haha. At least this guy provides entertainment.“Not me, but my wife sits next to a guy who opens up oatmeal packets and throws in it his mouth along with water, making oatmeal in his mouth. He says he doesn’t have time to eat. Does the same thing with protein powder and milk.” – goode3790Who wants to wash a bowl every day?Hope you enjoyed these.
