News April 27, 2021 Find out more News News What freedom do the media currently have?The main reports (photos and videos) that we are getting are coming from tourists and not journalists. The Chinese journalists in Xinjiang work for state media, media that are controlled by the Chinese government. So they relay propaganda and only show the negative side of Uyghur demands. The foreign journalists are completely manipulated by the Communist Party and have access to very little information. Party members accompany them wherever they go.What’s more, international telephone communications and the Internet have been cut. So it is very hard to send information abroad. Any activity of this kind is monitored. I do not dare to call my relatives for fear of putting them in even greater danger. Help by sharing this information July 7, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Appeal by Uyghur writer What are the information sources that the Uyghur people can rely on?Almost none. Independent news sources are privately-owned news sources. But it is currently very hard to communicate, there are fewer and fewer news sources, and journalists risk their lives if they dare to cover the riots. All of the Uyghur-language websites and forums have been closed since the start of the demonstrations on 26 June.As international communications have been cut, calls within the country offer the only way of getting information. The Uyghur community in Beijing, Shanghai and elsewhere within China is relaying information in this manner. That is how the Uyghurs in Xinjiang know what is happing outside the province.Is the Internet a useful means of communication for organising protests?The Internet has been disconnected and, if they have access, only a few people know how to use the methods for circumventing online censorship. The Internet is closely monitored in China and Internet users only see censored information. About half of the Uyghurs in Xinjiang used the Internet. The same goes for Urumqi. But Internet usage is closely regulated. In an Internet café for example, they request your ID card and everything you do is monitored. And when you request a personal connection at home, you have to register with the police and sign a statement promising to respect the Chinese connection regulations.I ask western journalists to try to collect information by all means possible and to help the Uyghur people by ensuring that justice is done through what they report.Reporters Without Borders said: “We urge the international community to adopt sanctions against China. It is not enough to just ask for democratic rights to be respected. The openness the Chinese government is showing towards the foreign news media should not divert attention from the fact that this concern for transparency is not being applied to Chinese journalists and the Internet. The authorities are cutting this province off from the outside world in order to be able to crack down without being seen.” March 12, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemns the control of news and information in the western region of Xinjiang. The Chinese government confirmed today that Internet access has been cut in the region’s capital, Urumqi, to “prevent the violence spreading.” International phone communications have also been cut since 5 July.The People’s Daily official newspaper reported that the city authorities and the Communist Party municipal committee held a news conference at midday today in Urumqi for 60 foreign news media and 80 national ones. The party’s “relevant department” then escorted the journalists on visits to the scenes of the recent rioting and to hospitals.Reporters Without Borders asked Kaiser Abdurusul, the secretary-general of the Uyghur PEN Centre, a UK-based association of independent Uyghur writers, about access to information in Xinjiang, which has an ethnic Uyghur majority.

So you have finally convinced the board of the advantages of implementing a knowledge management system in your company – but you’re unsure of what to do next. Follow our 10-point guide to get your staff sharing informationThe advantages of sharing expertise as a means of getting ahead are rarely contested. In the “knowledge economy” an organisation whose employees share best practice and skills will win a competitive edge.The concept of knowledge management started to emerge five years ago and is closely associated with the development of intranets. Many experts now see a close relationship between it and e-learning, with the Web being used to disseminate knowledge as well as deliver skills. That makes the topic as much a matter for people managers as for IT. HR’s role is critical in encouraging staff to abandon habits of hoarding knowledge and training them in effective use of the systems.”Knowledge management is extremely relevant to the HR professional,” says Helen Watts, training technology manager at the Unicorn Training Partnership. “Embracing the potential offered by knowledge management within HR strategy can have a fundamental effect on the development of the whole organisation.”Experts continue to be critical of HR’s failure to be proactive in this area, which they often see as part of a wider indifference to strategic business issues. However, the level of activity is increasing: research by consultancy Create shows that just over half of HR projects have a beneficial effect on knowledge-sharing behaviours. Chief executive Amin Rajan uses the analogy of a car journey and IT training issues: “Last year I was arguing HR was barely hanging on to the bumper, but now they are at least on the back seat,” he says.When planning a knowledge management project there are a number of steps and IT training issues to consider.1 Determine the business issuesDecide what it is that you want to achieve in encouraging employees to share what they know. Setting up systems and procedures are complex tasks and will accomplish little without an end in view. “You need to understand the driving force behind it: if there isn’t one, it is never going to happen,” says Mark Stimson, technical director at Click2Learn.com.Typical uses are to swap advice on specific projects, share best practice across the organisation or pass on tips for saving time and money. However, success is measured not in how well employees do this, but by the degree to which it impacts on efficiency and services the whole value chain of the business.Knowing the purpose of your knowledge management also has implications for the systems and processes you put in place, points out Jacky Swann, a Warwick Business School researcher, who recently co-wrote a report on the subject for the CIPD. “If you want to use it for exploitation, to capture what already exists so that it can be re-used in other parts of the organisation, you will need skills databases,” she says. “But if you want it for exploration, to create new ideas or new forms of knowledge, practices for developing and supporting social networks are more critical.”2 Make alliancesKnowledge management involves contributions from different parts of the business and HR can act as a facilitator to get everyone working together. “You will need a good cross-functional team, so you need to get across the message that this requires collaboration,” says Elizabeth Lank, head of ICL’s mobilising knowledge programme.Forging alliances with board members and heads of department is essential to ensure organisation-wide commitment. But you will also need to convince line managers and other key employees of the benefits of sharing knowledge.”HR has a knowledge of the people in the business, their skillsets and areas of excellence,” says Stimson. “As trainers we find that integrating with HR systems is a valuable way of capturing what a business already has. That is important when you are trying to target information that is relevant for specific people.”You will also need to have a relationship with your counterpart in IT to establish the extent to which existing systems will serve the project’s purposes and to find out what may need to be added or modified.”There is a bit of an exaggeration about not involving IT on the grounds that they are only enablers,” says Andrew Ettinger, director of learning resources at Ashridge. “But they are the ones who implement the systems and, as long as they have understanding of the business, you need to consult them fully.”3 Identify the solutionYou will need a consistent infrastructure such as a readily accessible intranet system. But bear in mind that no single supplier will necessarily deliver everything you need.Part of the solution may be available off-the-shelf, but it is likely to need some specialised development as well. Make sure you understand your requirements first or risk being sold a system that does not satisfy the unique potential within your business.”With large companies we have to deliver a range of formats and you will need an audit of what there already is,” says Stimson. “Some parts of the organisation will be using an intranet, while others may use Lotus Notes or CD-Roms.”Use your influence with the board to address the physical dimension. “Where there are long corridors and separate offices it is likely that people are not being encouraged to share information,” explains Lank. “A collaborative working environment does not have a lot of barriers, providing open-plan offices, coffee lounges and other places for people to meet and talk.”4 Create new rolesThink about the new roles that may be needed to support knowledge sharing. In the US, the position of chief knowledge officer is well accepted and this is becoming more common in Europe as a means of coordinating all aspects of the programme.One way of achieving buy-in from employees is to share tasks as widely as possible. Try appointing individuals to oversee communities of interest on the internet and give them the responsibility to ensure web pages are kept up-to-date and the freedom to use the facility in a way that they consider provides most benefit.Helping employees take advantage of the system may also require an input from the IT training function, with managers appointed to oversee its use and overcome technical difficulties.5 Measure the effectsA successful knowledge management programme is one that is seen to deliver tangible benefits. So provide mechanisms that can pick up on instances where the sharing of expertise has won competitive advantages. For instance, BP pointed to savings of £66m in new drilling projects achieved at a cost of only £2m, while knowledge sharing at Unilever enabled the company to double its soap production without having to build additional factories. Not all the effects will be on this scale. But where time and money has been saved or extra business won as a result of the project, talk it up whenever possible. That ensures continuing commitment from the board to provide resources and from individual employees to use the system effectively.6 Get the message acrossFor the project to work, employees need to understand both what is required of them and how that will add to the business. Your expertise in setting up and exploiting channels of communication will be essential.Coordinated announcements across a variety of channels will alert the workforce to the project. But these need to be followed up with more concerted messages, ideally through workshops that involve managers in the process.Once the project is running, be sure to return to the theme on a regular basis. For instance, a newsletter might have a regular update column drawing attention to particular instances of new business being won or costs being saved through timely knowledge sharing. Or you could try an idea used by Buckman Laboratories, a pioneer of knowledge management in the US. The company issued its employees with a code of ethics set out on a laminated card as a constant reminder of the need for respect and trust in a knowledge-sharing environment.7 Provide rewards and recognitionExperts increasingly stress the importance of incentives as a means of involving staff in the process of knowledge sharing. “A lot of improvements in knowledge behaviour are occurring as a result of changes in the recognition system, which is becoming much more sophisticated in many companies,” says Create’s Rajan.”Incentives can take a variety of forms, not all of them necessarily controlled by senior management,” says Warwick’s Swann. For instance, an employee can benefit themselves from the tips and shortcuts provided by a colleague.Other intangible rewards come in the form of status, reputation and recognition, which can be conferred on knowledge leaders in a particular field through honorary titles and awards. Swann cites the use of innovative approaches, such as HP distributing free Lotus Notes licences to encourage trainers and educators to submit ideas to knowledge bases. When these were first set up, the company also offered 2,000 free Air Miles to the first 50 readers and another 500 to anyone who posted a submission.Employees can be shown how the system can help them manage their individual personal development, providing both the motivation and the tools to encourage learning and progress. “Knowledge management is empowerment, not control,” says Unicorn’s Watts. “It can provide the opportunity to track and record the things they have learned, the courses they’ve been on, the tests they’ve taken and the feedback they’ve been given.”8 Create a collaborative cultureNo system or process for knowledge sharing will work unless employees buy into it. In most cases that means training is required to help them understand the benefits and what they can do to contribute. However, it is important to avoid using the term “training”, warns Paul Butler, CEO of KnowledgePool. “When you talk about an application, staff will see it as something that they are being required to learn, but here it is more about getting them to think differently,” he says. “You can’t train people to share what is inside their heads, but you can make sure they understand the value associated with inputting their knowledge into the whole.”In particular, there is a need to address the issue of knowledge hoarding, where individuals are reluctant to give up sole control of what they regard as their personal property.One way to put knowledge sharing in a positive light, Butler suggests, is to mobilise the system for general as well as specific business information. In KnowledgePool, the database contains material on employees’ hobbies, which are as disparate as Rioja wine, flying kites and fly-fishing in Florida. “If you can get people used to inputting information on things that interest them, they will start to see the point of it,” Butler says.9 Provide on-line supportWhen it comes to the use of Web-delivery systems, the issues for knowledge sharing are similar to those for e-learning, and on-line facilitators should be provided to help employees make the most of the technology.”Trainers have to show people how to use the information that is posted up and use it efficiently,” says Tim Drewett, worldwide manager professional e-learning services for McGraw-Hill Lifetime Learning.For instance, in newsgroups a trainer can show participants how to capture knowledge and experience, filter it correctly and push it back out. That can be done by extracting the important information from a conversation and putting it into the form of frequently asked questions that employees can refer to.Where newsgroup conversation tends to be superficial, the trainer might join in to probe for concrete information that is likely to be of more use to others. The trainer can also identify the “lurkers” – individuals who watch other people exchanging ideas and information without taking part themselves – and encourage them to make their own contributions.10 Don’t overdo itRemember that HR’s role is to help make the process work, not to take control. If knowledge sharing is seen to be an organisation-wide enterprise with the responsibility and ownership shared across all departments, you will have succeeded. Involving other departments will also prevent the project bearing the stamp of HR alone, limited to the range of its vision.”You have to be very careful with knowledge management because it can be a control mechanism,” says Ashridge’s Ettinger. “Some of the consultancies have gone too far, with everyone sharing everything in a way that simply turns them into clones. But in most organisations a little anarchic behaviour is a good thing.”By Rob McLuhan Spread the wordOn 14 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today

Photo: C.B. Klein; from 9/6/18 at Red Rocks [Video: thebrightsilence]To the surprise of nearly everyone in the audience, Rachael Price welcomed out her friend and country superstar, Miranda Lambert, to join her for a duet on “I Can Change.” The emotional new ballad set the stage for another new song, the quasi-rock-anthem “Dude.” Rachael’s wild, unbridled shriek echoed the late Janis Joplin (and across Red Rocks) as the band attacked the closing jam. But still, such a massive milestone for such an incredible band deserved a proverbial “cherry on top,” and the band delivered with a rare cover of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” before returning to the stage for a second encore and second cover, their stripped-down take on the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.”“Bohemian Rhapsody” Photo: C.B. Klein [Video: neurostimulator]As if there was any doubt, Lake Street Dive’s Thursday night show at Red Rocks solidified the band’s place in music folklore. Insanely tight and outrageously talented (and now with a Billboard Top 10 album under their belts), it’s obvious that this quintet is here to stay. Lake Street Dive continues their tour this week in Montana. More information and tour dates can be found at the band’s website here. You can check out a gallery of photos from Lake Street Dive’s headlining Red Rocks debut below, courtesy of C.B. Klein.Lake Street Dive | Red Rocks Amphitheatre | Morrison, CO | 9/6/2018 | Photo: C.B. Klein Load remaining images After eight albums and 14 years as a band, Lake Street Dive finally played a hard-earned headlining show on a cool, magical Thursday evening at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. With a crowd that spanned the decades, singer-songwriter extraordinaire Josh Ritter kicked off the night, taking a wonderfully gracious turn opening for a band that once supported him.Touring in support of their recently-released album Free Yourself Up, the five-piece group now has a considerably sized catalog at their disposal. Nevertheless, they started the set with one of the funkier tunes off of the new album, “Baby Don’t Leave Me Alone with My Thoughts”. Singer Rachael Price and bassist Bridget Kearney kicked the song off with ferocity, but like nearly every Lake Street Dive song, each band member made huge contributions to the overall sound. Mike “McDuck” Olson’s guitar playing was tastefully and impeccably placed, and drummer Mike Calabrese’s machine-like timing and precision held it all together.The recent addition of keyboardist Akie Bermiss truly shined on the new songs, including “You Are Free”, which followed. Akie joined the band’s tour in 2017, but this year’s album was his first time joining them in the studio. All of the band members sang Motown (or Muscle Shoals?!) quality backing vocals, continuing into the next tune, “I Don’t Care About You” from the 2016 album Side Pony. “Red Light Kisses” kept the energy going, and Rachael took a moment to get the crowd to sing a pair of backing vocal lines as the band went off before bringing it all back home.After one of their beautiful ballads, Rachael introduced the next trio of Bobby tunes, giving newer fans a brief overview of the infamous Bobby and his song history across all of the Lake Street albums. In short, we loved Bobby, then we got upset with Bobby, and now we see Bobby for what he is, and we’re ok with it. The trilogy starts with the classic “Bobby Tanqueray” off of 2014’s Bad Self Portraits. The first part of his story segued perfectly into “Spectacular Failure” before slipping right into the conclusion of the Bobby saga, “Doesn’t Even Matter.” After largely sticking with newer material, the band proceeded to dig deep into their past, playing a pair of songs off of their eponymous 2010 album, Lake Street Dive, with “Hello? Goodbye!” and “The Neighbor Song.”The consummate professionals that they are, the group managed the energy of audience with ease, moving between fast- and slow-tempo songs and weaving it all together exquisitely. The band sped things up again with 2014’s “Stop Your Crying” and the raucous “Hang On” from this year’s Free Yourself Up. Following the two rockers, Rachael invited Josh Ritter back out to the stage for a stunning duet on his classic song, “Girl in the War.” McDuck joined in for a haunting trumpet solo, before they welcomed the rest of the band back out. Ever gracious to the rest of the band, Rachael pointed out the incredible addition that is Akie Bermiss on keys, inviting him to sing one for the crowd.Akie dropped right into Shania Twain’s “Still The One,” and the band was right there behind him. Whether it’s a cover or one of many originals, Lake Street always seems impossibly tight, and their true-to-form take on “Still The One” was no exception. The group chugged along with the disco-laced “Call Off Your Dogs,” as well as “Seventeen,” before playing two more tunes from the new album, “Shame Shame Shame” and “Musta Been Something,” which featured a nice, extra little guitar intro from McDuck. The band slowly stepped away as the song came to an end, leaving Mike Calabrese on stage for a mind-bending drum solo that seemed to last for hours. Pounding away, Calabrese built the rhythm back up, and the band segued into the hit single and certifiable fan-favorite, “Bad Self Portraits.” Two more high-energy songs, “Good Kisser” and “Go Down Smooth” closed out the set, but clearly, Lake Street still had a few tricks up their collective sleeves for the encore.“Still The One”
The world premiere of Sarah Ruhl’s The Oldest Boy, starring three-time Tony nominee Celia Keenan-Bolger and James Yaegashi, officially opens off-Broadway on November 3. The production, directed by Rebecca Taichman, is playing at Lincoln Center’s Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. In The Oldest Boy, Tenzin, the toddler son of an American woman (Keenan-Bolger) and a Tibetan man (Yaegashi), is recognized as the reincarnation of a high Buddhist teacher. Differing cultures contend with competing ideas of faith and love when two monks seek permission to take Tenzin to a monastery in India to begin his training as a spiritual master. His parents must decide whether to send their young son away or keep him home. In addition to Keenan-Bolger and Yaegashi, the cast of The Oldest Boy includes Ernest Abuba, Tsering Dorjee, Takemi Kitamura, James Saito, Jon Norman Schneider and Nami Yamamoto.
