Shortly after the medical sector rally began at Edinburgh Place, another rally had started in Chater Garden held by thousands of civil servants. By 6:45 pm the park was overflowing with people, prompting police to close nearby Chater Road to traffic. Former chief secretary Anson Chan and former Secretary for the Civil Service Joseph Wong both urged an independent inquiry into police misconduct and defended freedom of expression, questioning the validity of Chief Secretary Matthew Cheung's warning about the risks of joining the rally and "breaching the principle of political neutrality." Wong stated, "The first line, is to safeguard the rule of law. Rule of law is higher than our loyalty to any chief executive. No one is above it."Musician and activist Denise Ho spoke at the rally, encouraged broad participation at the upcoming 5 August general strike.

While police estimated attendance of 13,000, the organiser claimed 40,000 civil servants participated at the rally. On 1 August, a police station in Ma On Shan was surrounded by a large number of protesters demanding the release of demonstrators facing riot charges from the previous week's protest.

International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities

The International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities known as International Association of Lighthouse Authorities, is an Intergovernmental organization founded in 1957 to collect and provide nautical expertise and advice. IALA is known by its French name of Association Internationale de Signalisation Maritime. IALA brings together representatives of the aids to navigation services of about 80 countries for technical coordination, information sharing, coordination of improvements to aids to navigation throughout the world, it was established in 1957 to provide a permanent organization to support the goals of the Technical Lighthouse Conferences, convening since 1929. The General Assembly of IALA meets about every 4 years; the Council of 24 members meets twice a year to oversee the ongoing programs. Four committees maintain work programs established for four year periods: ENAVe-Navigation, its principal work since 1973 has been the implementation of the IALA Maritime Buoyage System.

This system replaced some 30 dissimilar buoyage systems in use throughout the world with 2 major systems. This rationalised system was introduced as a result of two accidents in the Dover Straits in 1971 when the Brandenburg hit the wreck of the Texaco Caribbean off Folkestone and sank although the wreck was buoyed. A short while the Niki struck the Texaco Caribbean and sank, despite the wreckage being adequately marked; the combined loss of lives in these two accidents was 51 persons. Although the international agreement of 1982 implementing a harmonized buoyage system is a major achievement for IALA the Organization, through its committees carried out a lot of works in other directions resulting in innovating techniques being adopted all over the work, such as the AIS, DGNSS and many others, its future achievement is to be the implementation of the e-navigation. E-navigation does not aim at ships being electronically operated but gathering and displaying all navigation information through connected sources of information and harmonized data exchange.

IALA is based near Paris in France. IALA is known for the IALA Maritime Buoyage Systems or sea mark systems that are used in the pilotage of vessels at sea: Lateral marks indicate the edges of a channel. Cardinal marks indicate the direction of safe water at a dangerous spot. Safe water marks indicate the deep water and open end of a channel. Special marks indicate administrative areas, such as speed restrictions or water skiing areas. Isolated danger marks indicate a hazard to shipping. Emergency Wreck Marking Buoy: a new buoy introduced in 2006, marking a new wreck, it replaces lateral marks. Each type of mark has a distinctive colour, shape and a characteristic light; the IALA Maritime Buoyage System defines two regions in the world: IALA region A and IALA region B. Region B covers the whole of the Americas, South Korea and the Philippines, while the rest of the world belongs to the region A; the text of "Background" section of this article originated from section 125 of the American Practical Navigator, a document produced by the government of the United States of America.

Komisario Palmun erehdys

Komisario Palmun erehdys is a Finnish crime film directed by Matti Kassila for Suomen Filmiteollisuus. It is set in 1930s Helsinki and centers on Inspector Palmu's investigation of the murder of rich and decadent Bruno Rygseck, it is based on Mika Waltari's 1940 novel of the same name, was the first film adaptation of his Inspector Palmu novels. The film was followed by three sequels, komisario Palmu!, Tähdet kertovat, komisario Palmu and Vodkaa, komisario Palmu, which were produced by a different studio, Fennada-Filmi, but directed by Kassila and featured the same core cast. It has enjoyed great popularity over the years, in 2012, it was voted the best Finnish film of all time by Finnish film critics and bloggers in a poll organized by Yle Uutiset; the film opens with a scene of guests arriving at the crime-themed dinner party of Bruno Rygseck, the rich and decadent heir of the Rykämö concern. The guests are his cousins Airi and Aimo Rykämö, Airi's fiancé Erik Vaara, who works for the concern and dislikes Bruno, Irma Vanne, the daughter of vuorineuvos Vanne.

In order to scare them as they arrive, Bruno has dressed up as the Grim Reaper. The next morning, inspector Palmu and detectives Virta and Kokki are informed that Bruno has drowned in his indoor swimming pool after slipping on a bar of soap, they head to the Rygseck house to conduct a routine investigation. The party guests, as well as Bruno's aunt Amalia Rygseck and his estranged wife Alli Rygseck, are present at the house, as all of them had had something to discuss with Bruno that morning; as Palmu inspects the bathroom, he begins to suspect. When the policemen are shown around the house by Bruno's manservant, they find Vanne and famous author K. V. Laihonen engrossed in lively conversation in the basement, they are oblivious to the morning's events, as they had entered the house through the back door when coke was delivered in the early morning and have since been in the basement. Although Laihonen does not know Bruno or Vanne from before, he had been invited to the house by her to get back the stolen manuscript of his unpublished novel.

The atmosphere in the house becomes hostile towards the investigation as Palmu asks more detailed questions about the morning's events. He learns that the previous night, Aimo had stolen Amalia's cat and brought it with him to the dinner party, where Bruno had poisoned it and invited her to view the cadaver for his amusement. Despite Palmu's suspicions, the investigation is closed due to pressure from the powerful Rygsecks and because there is no evidence to prove that the death was not accidental. Laihonen asks Vanne to join him at the luxurious Hotel Kämp for a late lunch. At Kämp, Vanne tells the policemen more about the previous night, they had been playing a game in which each contestant has to commit a crime that the victim cannot report to the police. The winner was to be chosen by Vaara at the party, her crime had been to steal the manuscript. She had refused to reveal. Bruno had asked Vaara to come to his bedroom in order to show him his crime in private. Afterwards, Vaara had stormed out of the house in fury, after stating that Bruno had won the contest.

When Palmu and the detectives arrive back at the police station late in the afternoon, they are told that Alli Rygseck has been poisoned with prussic acid mixed in her absinthe. She had been back at the Rygseck house to discuss with the family members, to inherit from Bruno: she had insisted that she should get the house. Bruno's case is now re-opened, the policemen head back to the house. Palmu interrogates Airi about the promissory notes, she reveals that Aimo had been forging Bruno's signature to pay off his gambling debts. Bruno had told her that he would contact the police about it unless she were to agree to do something, although she refuses to specify what. In Bruno's bedroom, Palmu finds an album of nude photographs he had taken of his female friends, with one page torn off; that evening, the policemen meet Bruno's uncle Gunnar Rygseck, the head of the Rykämö concern, at his office. He tries to bribe Palmu and claims that Bruno was suicidal and had intended the poisoned absinthe for himself before dying accidentally.

Next, Palmu confronts Vaara. It is revealed to have been a nude photograph of Airi, he tells Vaara that Aimo killed Bruno and that Airi will be imprisoned as an accomplice as she has tried to protect her brother: this leads Vaara to confess to Bruno's murder. Palmu asks for Airi, who works for the concern, to come to Vaara's office, she confirms that the photograph is forged, finds the idea that her brother killed Bruno laughable. Vaara takes back his confession, Palmu admits that he never believed either him or Aimo to be the murderer. Palmu calls the Rygseck house, where Amalia is moving in, is told by her that Veijonen has disappeared. Palmu goes to interrogate Vanne again, she confesses to have in fact secretly stayed in Alli Rygseck's old bedroom on the night of the party; when she walked through the corridor leading to the bathroom the next morning in order to get to the back door, she thought that a stair creaked behind her, as if someone else was there as well. Palmu places her on house arrest at Laihonen's apartment.

In order to get the murderer to act, Palmu sends detective Virta to tell all the suspects that Vanne knows something about the murders
