Rupert Hargreaves | Saturday, 6th June, 2020 | More on: HLMA LSEG Have £5,000 to invest today? I’d buy these FTSE 100 growth stocks Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Enter Your Email Address Investing £5,000 in FTSE 100 stocks after the recent market crash might appear to be a risky bet. Indeed, the outlook for the global economy is highly uncertain. However, the sell-off may have produced a number of buying opportunities for long term investors, especially in the FTSE 100.As such, now could be a great time to build a portfolio of undervalued FTSE 100 growth shares. These companies may not produce high returns over the short run, due to the economy’s bleak outlook. Nevertheless, they may offer attractive growth prospects over the coming years.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 100 growth championSafety equipment manufacturer Halma (LSE: HLMA) is one of the best-positioned companies in the FTSE 100 to cope with the new normal after coronavirus.The company is working flat out to meet the rising demand for safety equipment. Halma’s businesses around the world were already big suppliers to healthcare facilities. This diversification is helping the group weather the current crisis.It’s manufacturing items such as components for ventilators and respiratory health devices and sensors to help make workplaces contact-free. Demand for this kind of equipment has increased dramatically in recent months. It’s unlikely to decline until the coronavirus crisis is fully contained.That said, there are no guarantees Halma will continue to pay its dividend during the current crisis. Nonetheless, the group has an excellent track record of buying and integrating new businesses. This may mean investors will continue to see substantial capital gains over the long run as earnings expand.Considering all of the above, Halma’s business model may prove to be more resilient than many FTSE 100 stocks. Therefore, the stock may produce a relatively stable total return in the coming years.Market championAnother FTSE 100 share that could deliver improving performance over the next few years is the London Stock Exchange (LSE: LSE).While many companies are already suffering falling demand from the coronavirus crisis, the LSE seems to be benefitting from market uncertainty. According to its recent trading update, total income rose 13% year-on-year during the first quarter. This was driven by “increased equity trading in capital markets.“This increased level of activity won’t last forward, but the FTSE 100 champion has many strings to its bow. The company is also one of the world’s largest financial data providers. It also helps clear trades — making sure buyers and sellers receive the money they’re promised — a tedious but lucrative business.As one of the largest clearing businesses in the world, the LSE can achieve profit margins just not available to competitors.This diversified business model, coupled with the LSE’s size, suggests its long-term profit growth potential appears to be relatively attractive. As such, now could be an excellent time for investors to make the most of recent market volatility and snap up a share of the business after its recent decline. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

The greatest full-backs of all time: Ken Scotland

first_imgKen Scotland spearheaded the attacking full-back movement, and in doing so, is recognised as one of the greatest of all time The playmaker was slight, even by past standards, and softly spoken. However, he was a dedicated tackler. His Test career was cut short as he moved to the North-East of Scotland but restrictions meant he couldn’t play for the region’s strongest FP clubs, so he had to join lowly, ‘open’ Aberdeenshire.It may sound like his playing career faded, but Scotland was a man who inspired past greats and paved the way for the more adventurous 15s of the modern age. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Major Teams: Army, Heriot’s FP, Cambridge University, London Scottish, LeicesterCountry: ScotlandTest span: 1957-65Scotland caps: 27 (27 starts)Lions caps: 5 (5 starts)Test points: 79 (8C, 16P, 5DG)In 1959 Ken Scotland took a ball on the run, as part of a pre-planned Lions move, and caught New Zealand completely off-guard. This wasn’t meant to happen but somehow this scotsman was doing things differently.The tourist showed the fallibility of the All Blacks that year, despite losing the series 3-1, and the locals named Scotland as one of five standout tourists. He played at scrum-half, fly-half and centre on that tour, but it was his play from full-back that caused the Kiwi writer Terry McLean to remark: “He floated like summer down through the New Zealand defence.”Scotland changed full-back play forever. Gone were the rules, with the Scot prepared to attack from the back, picking lines rather than waiting to counter-attack; staging raids on enemy territory rather than hoofing the pill away. And he could kick off both feet too. He made place-kicking with the instep of the foot glamorous, when before it was considered ridiculous. An all-round athlete, he also received one cap for Scotland at cricket. TAGS: The Greatest Players Ken Scotland It’s hard to fathom now, with his name lost amidst a sea of greats, but the classier players of the age adored the effortless abandon of Scotland’s play. At the time of his 50th Irish cap, Tom Kiernan was asked who the finest player of his generation was. Instantly he replied: “Ken Scotland. It was a privilege to be on the same field as he was.”last_img read more

Professional rugby reaches Hawaii

first_img“I want to do something that’s never been done before,” Kilgour tells Rugby World of the ambitious plans. “The MLR is not a retirement home, it’s not for the old guys who are asking for $300,000, it’s for the young guys who deserve a shot.“We’ve just seen in the Last Dance (documentary series), the NBA wasn’t big until Michael Jordan showed up, So why not in rugby? Hawaii is full of Michael Jordans – the Pacific is full of Michael Jordans or Jonah Lomus, so why don’t we find that Michael Jordan and be the Chicago Bulls of rugby in the States and just take it to the next level?“There’s most definitely untapped potential in Hawaii. If you get the right people on board. You need to have Mick Byrne, the best skills coach in the world. You have to have Tamati Ellison, one of the up-and-coming backs coaches in New Zealand. You have to have that calibre and knowledge to be able to upskill and tap that talent.“It’s not just a matter of making a team and saying it’s going to happen, you’ve got to put in the resources and the effort. And that’s why some American teams have struggled. They think, ‘There’s a lot of Islanders in Utah, we’re going to carve up.’“You’ve got to have the right people who are going to create culture, going to create the skill level. And that’s another thing for the Islands too.“You’ve got to have the right environments and you’ve got to have the right coaching staff. It’s something that’s missing.”Involved: Former all Black tighthead John Afoa, now with Bristol (Getty Images)The talent drain from the Pacific and the region’s Test teams struggling to secure access to their athletes who play on the other side of the world are two major talking points.According to Kilgour, this group want their players to represent the Island nations, adding: “If they want to play for Tonga, Samoa and Fiji we are going to support them. A lot of European teams make it difficult for an Islander to play for their nation. We are willing to pay them for their time away. We are willing to pay them during a tour of the UK or pay them while there’s a three-Test series in New Zealand for Fiji. LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS At the heart of all of this, they say, is representing Hawaii. And the group will need to be canny about finding the right price point for tickets and merchandise. Securing favourable television rights, drawing investors, it’s not easy. Kilgour sees the recent success of the Tongan rugby league side as a positive signifier, adding that one of the best things about this region is that “Pacific Islanders support Pacific Islanders”.The group will start slow and small. They will begin in a 10,000-seater stadium for a few years before planning to go into the University of Hawaii’s Aloha Stadium, home to the renowned Rainbow Warriors college football team and with a capacity of 50,000. And the promotion of Hawaiian players will be a touchstone.Related: The opportunities and the obstacles for Pacific Islands rugbySo what of the next big steps, then? Kilgour, a Kiwi who has also worked with the Cook Islands national set-up, explains: “We’ve got the right people and the right knowledge. And we’ve reached out to a lot of Hawaiians – that was the first thing we did, to ensure we get the community on board, get interest from the players.“We want Hawaiians to play for us. We want the current, contracted MLR Hawaiians to be playing for us. We want them to come home. There’s about seven or eight, but whether or not we get them is another thing – there’s all sorts of rules and regulations about who you can approach and talk to. But if MLR really want the game to grow, they will let the Hawaiians come back and play for Hawaii.Eventual home: The Aloha Stadium (Getty Images)“But Hawaii has a very good club system. And their high school rugby is very successful. The playing numbers are good and there is a long history of playing rugby in Hawaii.“We’re not competing against American Football. Rugby is a lot safer and there are a lot more opportunities for women in rugby. So we aren’t competing against anybody else. Our ticket prices are going to be cheap, affordable, because the team is for the people, it’s for the community.Related: Is this the most beautiful rugby ground in the world?“We want our home games sold out and we want all our home games in Hawaii. We want to make sure that our public get to see our players playing at home. And that’s why it’s important we get so many of those Hawaiian players playing for us. It just makes sense.“One of the key players we’re looking at is Hawaiian. He would be a marquee player. He’s more important to us than a Dan Carter or a Jonny Wilkinson. Because those two aren’t going to sell out stadiums, they aren’t going to sell us memberships. This one Hawaiian player is going to do that. It’s important we get Hawaiians back playing in Hawaii.”The side will have similar kit colourings as the famous Raiders in the NFL and plan to do their own pre-game challenge, like a haka or Sipi Tau. They want to be an intimidating team to play. But before all of that, they want to represent their region and its people. Professional rugby reaches HawaiiRugby has now got a new destination in the Pacific. Kanaloa Hawaii Rugby have been awarded a licence to complete in the USA’s Major League Rugby from February 2021.While the MLR continues to expand – and there are strong rumours that a team in Florida is in the offing too – this move is seen by the leadership at Kanaloa Hawaii as one that can also offer greater opportunities for Pasifika and Maori talent.Known as the Mercury Group, the club’s ownership includes former All Blacks Anthony Tuitavake, Ben Atiga, Jerome Kaino, Joe Rokocoko and John Afoa. Tracy Atiga is the group’s CEO (and the MLR’s first female CEO) and Cam Kilgour is the rugby manager.The team have also brought in Mick Byrne to be head coach. The Australian, who was skills coach as the All Blacks won two Rugby World Cups, will be assisted by former centre Tamati Ellison. The ex-Hurricanes, Highlanders and Rebels man has four All Blacks caps to his name.Related: Why there needs to be a Pacific Islands Super Rugby teamAnd as well as achieving an MLR license, the new franchise are also interested in exploring options to be a neutral base for any Pacific Island side in the mooted trans-Tasman club competition. However, according to Kilgour, who also helped set up the LA Giltinis – the new franchise in Los Angeles, reaching MLR was the first goal, with growing Pacific and Hawaiian rugby the bigger picture. A group of familiar faces from New Zelaand rugby are at the vanguard of MLR’s next big expansion, with Kanaloa Hawaii Rugbycenter_img “That’s the difference.

Un ministère d’inhumation des « saints innocents » dans une église de…

first_img Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Rector Knoxville, TN Submit a Press Release Submit a Job Listing Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Submit an Event Listing [Episcopal News Service] Lorsque le révérend Joshua Case et un petit groupe de paroissiens de l’église épiscopale des Saints Innocents inclinent la tête pour prier alors qu’ils enterrent certaines des plus jeunes victimes de la violence à Atlanta, ils le font souvent seuls.Dans certains cas, des membres de la famille sont présents à l’enterrement. D’autres fois, ils ne sont pas là. Soit ils sont absents, soit ils n’ont pas de moyen de transport jusqu’au cimetière ou bien ils sont incarcérés ou encore l’État leur interdit d’être présents.Mais l’enfant n’est pas oublié. Pendant ce bref service solennel, Joshua Case et les autres deviennent la famille « en deuil » de l’enfant.Depuis avril, Joshua Case a effectué seize de ces services au cimetière de Lakeside Memorial Gardens. Ces enterrements ne représentent qu’une petite partie des quelque 300 enterrements célébrés tous les ans et financés par le programme d’enterrements pour indigents du Comté de Fulton. Le nombre total de décès d’enfants en Géorgie – plusieurs centaines chaque année, selon le chiffre officiel – est encore plus effrayant et la détresse de ces victimes a inspiré à l’église des Saints Innocents de concentrer ses efforts d’entraide sur les enfants victimes de violence afin d’honorer sa mission à long terme et son nom.Alors qu’il continuait d’en savoir plus sur les jeunes victimes de Géorgie, Joshua Case a rencontré le révérend Cliff Dawkins, l’aumônier qui supervise les enterrements d’indigents du Comté de Fulton. Joshua Case a été stupéfait d’apprendre que les enterrements d’enfants se déroulaient souvent sans aucune famille ni aucun témoin autres que Cliff Dawkins et le personnel du cimetière.« Ma première réponse a été : pas dans mon comté », nous rapporte Joshua Case.Cliff Dawkins a invité Joshua Case à présider les enterrements des enfants et un petit groupe de l’église des Saints Innocents s’est formé pour accompagner Joshua Case lors de ces services.Article complet en anglais.

Noelle York-Simmons, at a special installation service. She is the first female rector in the church’s 243-year history.The Rt. Rev. Shannon Johnson, bishop of the Diocese of Virginia, was the celebrant. The service also featured the Rev. Kimberly Jackson associate rector of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Atlanta, Georgia, as guest preacher, where she spoke of the new and wonderful challenges that York-Simmons and the Christ Church community will greet together: “It is time…to sing a new song.”In recommending York-Simmons to the vestry, the Rector Search Committee called her an outstanding preacher, spiritual leader, parish leader and caring shepherd. “Her sermons are Bible-based and filled with reflections for today … Her tone is warm and joyful… and her energy and enthusiasm are infectious.”The York-Simmons was senior associate rector of All Saints’ in Atlanta for seven years and served there as associate rector there five years prior to that. She also served as dean of the MidAtlanta Convocation, a regional convocation of churches and communities in the Diocese of Atlanta. She is a graduate of Emory University and the Berkeley Divinity School at Yale. She expects to receive a Doctor of Ministry degree from Emory’s Candler School of Theology next year, focusing on homiletics (preaching).“I am honored and excited to celebrate together.

Slide House / LEVEL Architects

first_img “COPY” Projects “COPY” Year:  Architects: LEVEL Architects Year Completion year of this architecture project 2009 Text description provided by the architects. Imagine you were a kid living in a house like this. Everyday would be a party, don’t you think? What do you do when your clients, a couple with three children, ask for a house so special that the children will cherish the memory of it for the rest of their lives’? You design a house with the most playful element imaginable, a slide that spans three floors. Save this picture!DiagramRecommended ProductsPorcelain StonewareApariciPorcelain Tiles – BrickworkCorporate ApplicationsULMA Architectural SolutionsPolymer Concrete Facade in UniEléctricaFiber Cements / CementsRieder GroupFacade Panels – concrete skinRather than placing the slide next to the staircase or installing it in a playroom, they boldly made it an integral part of the house. After entering the ground-floor entrance to the house, you ascend the staircase to the right, along the wall, and climb past the first floor to the second story. The trip back down takes seconds when you use the slide, which runs along the entire inner perimeter of the building. We spent a lot of time trying to figure out the right angle of the slope, best materials for the slide and the ideal construction method of the curved corners where the wall had to be reinforced. Save this picture!Courtesy of LEVEL ArchitectsThe four corners of the building are rounded. The first floor, which accommodates a living-dining area and includes the kitchen, is surrounded by the stairs and the slide. A 6m-long build-in sofa creates a sense of unity as light filters in from the courtyard through gratings. The bedroom on the second floor has no partitioning and is for everyone. Rounded couners cast soft shadows inside, while giving the building an appealing look outside. Save this picture!First Floor PlanA month after completing the project, we visited the house.

Located on one of the few lots in Dallas elevated enough to enjoy a view of the downtown skyline, the five-story Vertical House rises dramatically above the treetops to capture views of the surrounding gardens and the skyline beyond. Characterized by clean lines, sheer glass walls, and sculptural sun shades, this sharply-detailed house offers an intriguing counterpoint to the tropical ambiance of its forest-like setting.Save this picture!© Paul FinkelThe client, an avid collector of exotic plants, wanted a house that would not only maximize views of the site, but also maintain privacy from neighboring properties. In response, the house was conceived as two interlocking, contrasting volumes: one half is transparent and oriented toward views of the gardens, while the other half is solid and geared toward providing privacy to the spaces within. Each floor contains a specific portion of the program, with more public spaces situated on the transparent side of the structure, and vice versa.Save this picture!© Paul FinkelStarting at the lowest level, two 60-foot-tall exterior screen walls surge upward on both sides of the house. The verticality of the screen walls—combined with the structure’s compact footprint—accentuates the home’s slenderness and height. Comprised of 6×2 hollow tube steel sections spaced six inches on center, the screens provide the primary structural support for the floor plates, which consist of conventionally-spaced wide flanges framed by steel channels on all sides. A series of ¾” steel plates transfers the load from each floor to the external screen wall, which is offset from the structure in order to achieve a floating effect from within. On one side, floor-to-ceiling butt-glazed windows create the impression of a taut, transparent volume flanked by a delicate trellis, with the vertical steel tubes doubling as solar shading to the eastern and western exposures. On the opposite side, large blocks of locally-quarried roughback Leuders limestone create a contrasting effect, providing shade and privacy. Smaller, inset windows reinforce the sense of weight and enclosure, while giving penetrations a pronounced shadow line.Save this picture!SectionThe first floor of the residence is partially burrowed into the site and accessed via a spiraling driveway carved into the limestone bedrock. Commencing at the street, where a metal gate set into bastions clad in Leuders limestone hangs from a short pedestrian bridge, the dramatic approach along the driveway allows for an almost subterranean experience of the landscaped canopy above. The driveway terminates in a small auto court, and the first floor of the house contains a carport (with one side formed by the screen wall), storage/utility rooms, and powder room.Save this picture!© Paul FinkelThe main entrance to the house is located on the second floor (at natural grade). Visitors to the house park in a separate auto court and follow a footpath through gardens featuring both native and exotic flora before crossing over the excavated auto court via an exposed steel footbridge with glass handrails. A cantilevered balcony—its underside finished in warm Ipe wood—projects from the master bedroom on the third floor to define the entryway. A guest bedroom on this level takes advantage of the floor-to-ceiling windows, while a laundry room and bathroom are nestled into the more opaque half. Worth noting is the shower, which includes an exterior door that opens directly into a small aviary enclosed by a thin mesh canopy overhead.Save this picture!Courtesy of Miró Rivera ArchitectsMoving vertically through the house from the entrance, every major space is immediately accessible from the glass-enclosed stairwell (reflecting one of the client’s key requirements). Views of the landscape and skyline beyond become ever more impressive as the ground below falls away, and a palpable sense of suspension takes hold. The third floor hosts the master suite, while on the fourth floor the living room seems to hang in midair—a sensation reinforced by a fireplace made of thin plate steel that appears to hover in front of the windows. The subdued material palette throughout the interior consists of white walls and polished concrete floors (ground down slightly to expose the aggregate), with a continuous accent wall of bookmatched Carrara marble that runs the height of the stair connecting all the floors.Save this picture!© Paul FinkelThe progression terminates at an inviting open-air roof terrace, which offers breathtaking 360-degree views. A mechanical skylight provides access from inside, and the terrace is shaded from the afternoon sun by an extension of the screen wall, which turns 90 degrees to form an airy pergola. Captured rainwater from the roof supplements irrigation for the surrounding landscaping.Save this picture!Courtesy of Miró Rivera ArchitectsA pool house located on the north side of the property, with a dedicated entrance and auto court, contains a gym and guest accommodations. A tubular steel trellis echoes the design of the main house, in this case taking the form of a long, lowslung canopy that cantilevers over a private patio at one end, and turns down to enclose a carport at the other. The pool house opens up to a 65-foot long lap pool via floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows. Lush vegetation spills over the heavy limestone block walls that surround the pool and deck, providing a secluded space for exercise and recreation.Save this picture!© Paul FinkelProject gallerySee allShow less8 Lessons On Succeeding as a Firm, From the Business Mind Behind BIGArticles52 Types of Wood and the Trees They Come FromMisc Share “COPY” Vertical House / Miró Rivera ArchitectsSave this projectSaveVertical House / Miró Rivera Architects “COPY” Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/868947/vertical-house-miro-rivera-architects Clipboard Year:  Housescenter_img Architects: Miró Rivera Architects Area Area of this architecture project United States 2013 Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/868947/vertical-house-miro-rivera-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Dallas, United States Save this picture!© Paul Finkel+ 37 Share Vertical House / Miró Rivera Architects ArchDailylast_img read more

The Forum is campaigning to encourage the Government to retain the 10% supplement after April 2003, when it is due to cease.It might be a hard campaign to win, but it will not get anywhere if voluntary sector staff, and fundraisers in particular, do not demonstrate their interest in retaining this useful top-up.

Independent journalist murdered in Kabardino-Balkaria

first_imgNews August 1, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Independent journalist murdered in Kabardino-Balkaria Follow the news on Russia Organisation News After repeated death threats, reporter was apparently abducted from his home to go further Читать по-русски в PDF и ниже / Read in RussianReporters Without Borders offers its heartfelt condolences to the family and colleagues of Timur Kuashev (Тимур Куашев), a journalist and human rights defender who was found dead today in a suburb of Nalchik, the capital of the autonomous Kabardino-Balkar Republic in the Russian Caucasus.He was the Nalchik correspondent of Dosh, a magazine that specializes in covering the Russian Caucasus.“Kuashev’s death is yet another reminder of the exorbitant price paid for independent journalism in certain republics in the Russian Caucasus,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk.“The lack of any adequate reaction from authorities to the death threats he had received amounts to culpable negligence. A full and impartial investigation must be conducted, if necessary from outside Kabardino-Balkaria, to identify this murder’s perpetrators and instigators. The widespread impunity enjoyed by those who attack journalists in the region must be ended as a matter of urgency.”Kuashev’s body was found this afternoon in a wood near the Nalchik suburb of Khasania after he went missing yesterday evening. According to initial reports, the body bore no visible signs of violence. An autopsy is to be carried out to determine the cause of death.“We believe that Timur was kidnapped from his home,” Dosh wrote today, pointing that his body was found in the kind of clothes worn at home, and that his mobile phone, which he always took with him, had been left in his apartment.Kuashev had been covering abuses carried out by the security forces in the course of anti-terrorism operations. A defender of the rights of the Cherkess population, he also recently criticized Russian policy in Ukraine and the Israeli intervention in Gaza. He had been getting threats for years and, on 30 April 2013, he published an open letter to the security forces and to human rights organizations in which he said he was concerned for his life. He had also reported received death threats from users of the LiveJournal blog platform. “As a provocateur, aren’t you afraid of being swept away by the wave you create,” one wrote, suggesting that Kuashev was on a hit-list. “Don’t play with fire… reflect for once (…) on what you are doing and where it is leading you. That’s my advice.” Another wrote: “You will die at an astonishingly young age.”Police arrested him on 21 May, just before the start of a march marking the 150th anniversary of the end of the Caucasian War, and held him for four hours at a police station without explanation, thereby preventing him from participating in the march.A few days before that, he had reported on LiveJournal that the interior ministry’s anti-terrorism centre had launched a smear campaign against him. While held, a policeman reportedly told him: “You will pay if you continue in the same way.”Dosh publisher Abdulla Duduyev told Reporters Without Borders: “At our request (…) Timur Kuashev wrote articles on the most current topics – politics, illegal actions by the security forces and special operations. He always wrote effectively, honestly and courageously.”Dosh was awarded the Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize in the “Media” category in 2009.As a result of the extreme polarization in Kabardino-Balkaria and neighbouring republics, independent journalism is very dangerous and is often identified with support for armed Islamists.Reporters Without Borders published a report on media freedom in nearby Dagestan and Chechnya in October 2011. Interview with Dosh (2011)———————————-В Кабардино-Балкарии убит независимый журналист«Репортеры без границ» выражают свои искренние соболезнования родным и близким журналиста и правозащитника Тимура Куашева, найденного мертвым 1 августа 2014 на окраине города Нальчик, столицы Кабардино-Балкарии. Он работал корреспондентом независимого журнала «Дош» на территории этой автономной республики северного Кавказа.«Смерть Тимура Куашева является очередным напоминанием огромной цены независимой журналистики в некоторых республиках северного Кавказа», – с горечью заявляет руководитель отдела Восточной Европы и Центральной Азии «Репортеров без границ» Йоханн Бир. «Отсутствие адекватной реакции со стороны властей на неоднократные угрозы смерти в адрес жертвы равноценно преступной халатности. Необходимо провести всеобщее и беспристрастное расследование, которое должно установить личности исполнителей и заказчиков этого убийства, в случае необходимости за пределами Кабардино-Балкарии. Необходимо незамедлительно положить конец безграничному беззаконию агрессоров журналистов в этом регионе».Близкие Тимура Куашева остались без вести о нем с вечера 31 июля. Его тело было найдено 1 августа во второй половине дня в лесу в районе Хасанья, в пригороде Нальчика. Согласно первой информации какие-либо следы насилия на теле отсутствуют. В ближайшее время должно быть проведено судебно-медицинское исследование для того, чтобы установить причину его смерти. «Мы предполагаем, что Тимура забрали накануне вечером из дома», – пишет журнал «Дош», сообщая, что его нашли в домашней одежде, в то время как его мобильный телефон, с которым он никогда не расставался, остался дома.Журналист проводил расследования фактов произвола силовых структур в борьбе с терроризмом и боролся за права черкесского населения. В последнее время он критиковал российскую политику в Украине и израильское вторжение в Сектор газа. Последние годы он получал многочисленные угрозы. 30 апреля 2013 года он опубликовал открытое обращение к органам правопорядка и правозащитным организациям, в котором выразил беспокойство «за свою жизнь». Он тогда сообщал о неоднократных угрозах смерти от пользователей платформы блогов «LiveJournal». «Tы, как провокатор, поднимающий волну – не боишься что и тебя накроет?», – написал один из них, прежде чем дал понять, что имя Тимура Куашева могло бы быть занесено в «расстрельный список». «Не играй с огнем… Подумай хоть раз (…), что ты делаешь и к чему это может привести, мой тебе совет!», – продолжал он. «Умрёшь неожиданно молодым», – предупреждал другой пользователь.21 мая 2014 года Тимур Куашев был задержан во время проведения акции, посвященной 150-ию кавказской войны (1763-1864 гг.) в Нальчике. Его отвезли в полицейский участок незадолго до начала мероприятия и отпустили без объяснений, продержав четыре часа и помешав ему принять участие в акции. За несколько дней до этого на блоге «LiveJournal» он писал о распространении ложных сведений на его счет антитеррористическим центром министерства внутренних дел. Во время задержания полицейский ему сказал: «это тебе аукнется, продолжай в том же духе».Главный редактор журнала «Дош» Абдулла Дудуев заявил «Репортерам без границ», что: «Тимур Куашев писал статьи на самые актуальные темы: политика, незаконные действия силовых структур, «зачистки». Он всегда писал оперативно, честно и мужественно». Журнал «Дош» был удостоен международной премии свободы прессы «Репортеров без границ» в категории «СМИ» в 2009 году.Из-за крайней поляризации, царящей в Кабардино-Балкарии и соседних республиках, работа свободных журналистов представляет особую опасность, часто ее смешивают с оказанием поддержки вооруженным исламистам. В октябре 2011 года «Репортеры без границ» опубликовали отчет о проведении расследования о состоянии свободы печати в Дагестане и Чечне.
