Community Fund to check recipients’ Web sites for support for terrorism

first_imgThis approach simply confirms that fundraising in all its forms is not solely restricted to the “fundraising pages” of a Web site. A trust fundraiser’s hard work in an application to the Community Fund could be wasted if her colleagues in other teams or departments have published controversial material on the charity’s Web site.The Community Fund’s research will focus on the Web sites of about 5,000 organisations.  15 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Community Fund to check recipients’ Web sites for support for terrorism Howard Lake | 17 October 2002 | News The Community Fund is to examine the Web sites of about 5,000 organisations it has funded to ensure that they do not contain any “expressions of sympathy for terrorism,” reports ThirdSector magazine.Some grant-makers have used charities’ Web sites for some time as an additional source of background information on a charity seeking funding. Now the Community Fund is to scan Web sites to run a “hygiene check” that none of the groups providing legal advice that it has funded publish any expressions of sympathy for terrorism.The move follows the controversy, stoked by the Daily Mail, about the Community Fund’s support for the National Coalition of Anti-Deportation Campaigns and the Community Empowerment Network.

State TV crew physically attacked during opposition demonstration

first_img Follow the news on Togo March 30, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 State TV crew physically attacked during opposition demonstration Togolese authorities urged to lift newspaper’s four-month suspension Organisation RSF_en Reporters Without Borders today urged Togo’s presidential candidates to appeal to their supporters not to use violence against journalists after a crew with the state-owned television station TVT was attacked and threatened during a rally by the opposition Union of Forces for Change (UFC) on 26 March to demand the postponement of the 24 April presidential election.”The violence against the TVT crew is all the more worrying as it comes amid a series of threats against journalists accused of bias in an extremely tense political context,” the press freedom organization said. “Attacks against the press are often a harbinger of greater violence to come, so we solemnly call on all 4 presidential candidates, regardless of their political sensibilities, to make a public appeal to their supporters not to attack the press,” Reporters Without Borders said, adding that “such an initiative seems essential in order to ensure a calm election campaign.”When the TVT crew arrived in a vehicle bearing the station’s logo at the site of the UFC rally in the Lomé district of Bê-Château on the morning of 26 March, reporter Bangna Kondor, cameraman Gilles Obnassé and soundman Adjété Sossou were accosted and insulted by a group of youths who told them they could not stay to cover the demonstration.The crew consulted the UFC head of security, Evans Welbeck, who assured them they could stay and do their work. But half way through the rally, the crew was physically attacked by a group of “over-excited youths” who broke the rear window of their vehicle and threatened to kill them. At this point the UFC stewards suggested they had better leave in view of the crowd’s mood.Reached yesterday by Reporters Without Borders, UFC secretary-general Jean-Pierre Fabre said his party “completely disassociates itself from this violence” and has adopted “measures to ensure that such incidents are not repeated.”The attack comes in an increasingly alarming climate of intimidation for many journalists who are accused of being either the stooges of the ruling Rally for the Togolese People (RPT) or opposition spokesmen. In addition to TVT journalists, accused by the opposition of bias, some foreign correspondents – especially those who are white, who are usually assumed rightly or wrongly to be French – have been the target of verbal attacks in recent weeks by demonstrators critical of France’s policies towards Togo.Privately-owned radio and TV stations became the targets of censorship in February when President Gnassingbé Eyadéma died and his son, Faure Gnassingbé, seized power setting off a political crisis. A total of seven radio stations and two TV station were closed on various pretexts ranging from “inciting revolt” to “tax reasons.” All have since been allowed to reopen.

This measure ensures that the Californians who receive water from these companies have a voice in the decisions that impact their water rates, quality and service.”AB 1077 has had broad bipartisan support.

(Courtesy Photo) MIDLAND Starlight Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. and Texas Tech Associate Professor of Psychology, Stephanie Moses, Ph, D. are collaborating in an Equine Facilitated Therapy (EFT) study to learn more about the effects of cognitive-behavioral therapy on youth with anxiety.Starlight Executive Director, Gina Friedman, said the non-profit developed the program in response to new mental-health needs brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.“Over the past year, there has been an increase in the number of inquiries by families on behalf of individuals suffering from anxiety, stress, and other mental-health concerns,” Friedman said. “While we offer several horsemanship programs that are responsive to these needs, we are now launching a partnership with a licensed, certified mental-health practitioner to study the benefits of EFT for those looking for a different approach to improve mental wellness.”EFT is the combined use of horses, a licensed therapist, and an equine specialist working with participants to address various therapeutic treatment goals. EFT gives individuals an opportunity to learn about themselves and others by participating in activities with the horses, then processing feelings, behaviors, and patterns with the therapist’s help.Friedman said that spending time outdoors in nature instead of sitting in an office across from a therapist is often more appealing to teens. “It can be an attractive option for an adolescent who is hesitant about traditional therapy,” she said. “Being outside and interacting with the horses can motivate a young person to seek or agree to professional help.”“The services that we provide for individuals and their families within our community are non-traditional, unique, and powerful,” Friedman said. “Being at the barn and interacting with our horses often brings harmony and tranquility to those who visit us. Our goal is to create awareness about the benefits of EFT and give individuals who suffer from anxiety an alternative to traditional therapy.”Starlight Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. is located at 5401 Polo Club Road in Midland.For more information, call 432-741-5773 or visit www.starlightmidland.org.last_img read more

Other locations were primarily north of Birmingham.“The biggest problem is that once Boxwood Blight is established in the area, you can’t get rid of it. The disease stays in the soil,” said Kassie Conner, plant diagnostician at Auburn University. “The disease does not kill the plants but defoliates them.” By Secrets Revealed By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day “Those who have existing boxwoods should keep a close watch for symptoms of the disease including leaf spots, black stem and lesions and defoliation,” she said. “If any of the symptoms are displayed the plant should be removed.”Conner said, in order to positively identify the disease, those who suspect Boxwood Blight in their plants are encoraged to send the plants to the Auburn Plant Dianogstic Center in Auburn, 916 South Donahue, Auburn, Ala. 36832.
