L’apiculture a été initiée sur ce site en 1984. Aujourd’hui, plus de 350 paysans ont choisi ce métier d’apiculteur au sein de 33 villages concentrés autour de la forêt classée d’Agoua, un autre site naturel préservé de la commune de Banté. La visite de plus en plus fréquente de ce site par des touristes suscite un travail préalable pour éviter le développement d’un tourisme sauvage.

Erreurs judiciaires | Innocence project Qu’est-ce que l’Innocence project ? L’Innocence Project est une organisation non gouvernementale américaine créée en 1992 par deux enseignants de la Yeshiva University, une faculté de droit à New York. Grâce à leur action et à l’aide de leurs étudiants, Peter Neufeld et Barry Scheck parviennent à innocenter des prisonniers condamnés grâce à des tests ADN. Leur concept consiste à comparer les relevés ADN sur la victime et les lieux du crime à celui du condamné. Aux Etats-Unis, grâce aux tests ADN, 245 personnes ont été ainsi innocentées après avoir été condamnées. Ce que dénonce l’Innocence project Parmi les personnes innocentées, 75% avaient été « formellement » identifiées par un ou plusieurs témoins et la moitié l’avait été à cause d’expertises scientifiques erronées. La relativité du témoignage humain Innocence Project Calvin Willis a-t-il été reconnu ? La délation de mauvaise foi Dans près de 15% des cas, un informateur indélicat a volontairement témoigné à tort contre l’accusé.

Death row inmate Glenn Ford released 30 years after wrongful conviction Glenn Ford has been freed from the notorious Angola prison in Louisiana having lived under the shadow of the death sentence for 30 years. He becomes one of the longest-serving death row inmates in US history to be exonerated. Ford was released on the order of a judge in Shreveport after Louisiana state prosecutors indicated they could no longer stand by his conviction. In late 2013 the state notified Ford’s lawyers that a confidential informant had come forward with new information implicating another man who had been among four co-defendants originally charged in the case. He was sentenced to death in 1984 for the murder the previous November of Isadore Rozeman, an older white man who ran a Shreveport jewellery and watch repair shop. The defendant had worked as an odd jobs man for Rozeman. Asked as he walked away from the prison gates about his release, Ford told WAFB-TV, “It feels good; my mind is going in all kind of directions.

WebElements Periodic Table of the Elements U.S. Seeks Silence on CIA Prisons - washin The Bush administration has told a federal judge that terrorism suspects held in secret CIA prisons should not be allowed to reveal details of the "alternative interrogation methods" that their captors used to get them to talk. The government says in new court filings that those interrogation methods are now among the nation's most sensitive national security secrets and that their release -- even to the detainees' own attorneys -- "could reasonably be expected to cause extremely grave damage." Terrorists could use the information to train in counter-interrogation techniques and foil government efforts to elicit information about their methods and plots, according to government documents submitted to U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton on Oct. 26. The government, in trying to block lawyers' access to the 14 detainees, effectively asserts that the detainees' experiences are a secret that should never be shared with the public. The U.S.

Fête de la Nature 2010 - Ma voisine, la Nature en Fête - du 19 a Innocence Project Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. L’Innocence Project (« Projet Innocence ») est l'un des nombreux organismes à but non lucratif établis aux États-Unis, au Canada, au Royaume-Uni, en Australie et en Nouvelle-Zélande qui œuvrent à démontrer l'innocence de personnes condamnés par erreur en ayant recours à des contre-expertises fondées sur des tests ADN, invalidant d'anciennes théories ayant menées à l'inculpation et fondées à leur tour sur la seule base de témoignages, ou sur l'expertise de police scientifique (y compris d'anciens tests ADN). Il souhaite également une réforme du système de justice criminelle dans le but de réduire les erreurs judiciaires[1]. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] Affilié au Benjamin N. Activités[modifier | modifier le code] En plus de tenter de faire libérer des personnes condamnées par erreur aux États-Unis, l’Innocence Project fait des recherches et des plaidoyers dans les cas d'erreurs judiciaires.

Freedom After 30 Years on Death Row - Andrew Cohen A case involving a black man convicted by an all-white jury in Louisiana decades ago may be reopened. A 1984 photograph of Louisiana death row inmate Glenn Ford, who may soon be exonerated (James R. McClure/Caddo Parish Indigent Defender Office) UPDATE: Glenn Ford was indeed released from prison late Tuesday afternoon local time. The same judge who denied him relief in 2009 was the one who signed the order authorizing his release. ORIGINAL STORY: Glenn Ford, a black man wrongfully convicted of murder by an all-white jury in Louisiana in 1984, a man who has spent the last 30 years on death row for a crime he did not commit following a trial filled with constitutional violations, is on the verge of being set free. Ford's dogged lawyers and enlightened parish prosecutors in Shreveport both filed motions late last week informing a state trial judge that the time has come now to vacate Ford's murder conviction and death sentence. Any exoneration is remarkable, of course.

How can acoustics technology help police locate gunshots?" October 30, 2006 In parts of cities like Washington, D.C., gunshot-detection systems are improving police response time to shots fired. Gunshots that once waited for responses to 9-1-1 calls from neighbors or the discovery of a body hours or days later now get reported automatically, within seconds of the event. There are several gunshot-sensor systems on the market. The heart of the system is acoustic triangulation. ShotSpotter uses 10 to 12 sensors spaced evenly throughout each square-mile section of the city it's covering, and each sensor is capable of hearing the sound of gunfire within a 2-mile (3-km) radius. Because the speed of sound is a known entity -- 340.29 meters per second (0.21 miles per second) at sea level -- the difference in the time it takes for the sound of a gunshot to reach three different sensors can determine the location of that gunshot. A shot is fired somewhere in the city. We now have our gunshot location, at least in terms of distance from the sensors.
