Our news priorities are elsewhere: When he drew breath, I suggested his position was unwise, wished him a good flight back to Washington, and re-joined my colleagues.
When did it become reasonable for a spokesperson for a senior government department of an evolved democracy to try to bully and intimidate the press? I suspect he took his cue from his ultimate boss, President Trump. This kind of treatment should be sounding alarm bells. RSF produces an annual world press freedom index external link: It could be argued that these incidents are not especially serious, but many, Vincent among them, worry that a climate in which journalists are shouted at can lead, perhaps gradually, perhaps without us even noticing, to a situation where journalists are denied accreditation, have their equipment confiscated, are arrested, beaten in detention, finally killed.
Vincent points out that is already one of the deadliest on record for journalists; 69 have died doing their jobs this year alone, compared with 65 for the whole of Some, RSF knows, were deliberately targeted. Here, Vincent says, the UN has an important role to play. And RSF would like to see a UN expert appointed with a specific mandate related to the safety of the media.

The special rapporteur on freedom of expression is, Vincent believes, very important, but that mandate is becoming very broad. Its president Hedayat Abdelnabi believes there should be an international convention to protect journalists. May 16, Sherimi 5 books view quotes. May 03, Matthew 0 books view quotes.

Radiation posioning has always interested me, and this book details Ouchi's condition after being exposed to high amounts of radiation; as well as explaining WHY these symptoms emerged. The reader is also given insight into how the characters were feeling at these times, except Ouchi, who becomes unable to communicate, so his prospective is lost.
The only drawback is that some parts are very vague or not detailed just enough to understand, but these parts are far and few between. I only realized this partway, so I thought I would mention it. A nessecary read in the age of nuclear warfare. This is a book about a man named Ouchi whose chromosomes were destroyed by a blast of neutron rays while working in unsafe conditions in a uranium processing facility.
For 83 days, a crack team of doctors, nurses, and medical experts from several countries try to keep him alive. Because Ouchi's chromosomes have been destroyed, his body cannot generate new cells to replace the dead ones. His skin falls off. His mucus membranes disappear. He is in constant pain. He suffers massive internal hemorrhages and the medical staff have to constantly pump fluids and nutrients into his body to keep him alive.
His organs fail, one by one, and their functions are taken over by various medical apparatus. At various points, Ouchi's doctors and nurses question whether or not what they are doing is the right thing to do. That is to say, are they actually helping him, or are they just endlessly prolonging his agony? This is a slim but tough book. It goes into gruesome but necessary detail about the deterioration of a human body afflicted by neutron beam radiation.
‘I’m going to die a slow death.’ Insurance stops covering man’s life-saving medication
It is told in a straightforward reportorial style that goes into thoroughgoing technical detail but not so much that the average reader cannot follow along. It also gives space to the emotional turmoil the medical staff underwent as they battled to keep Ouchi alive. In some ways, this is a book about the dangers of atomic radiation, but it is also a strange kind of existential novel where the main character's mental state is largely unknown at the height of his suffering.
Ouchi was under heavy sedation for much of his sickness and he was unable to communicate in any detail what his thoughts and feelings were. The book seems to suggest that had he been awake his suffering would've been monstrous. The medical staff did what they thought was best even in the face of a hopeless situation. This is harsh story taken from real life and told in harrowing but necessary detail. I found this book to be far dryer than I expected, and thus it was very difficult to get through.
As to the story, I don't think I've ever been more disturbed. Ouchi endured makes even the worst of hells pale in comparison. But I didn't get the sense that medical staff were coldly treating the poor man like an 'experiment', as has been suggested. It seemed to me that each nurse and physician was dedicated to helping Mr.
Ouchi heal in any way they could. Such a great book. Kinda fascinating and horrific at the same time.
