Extra time for Volunteers’ Week 2016

first_img Volunteers’ Week has been extended by an extra five days this year, to enable more people to take part.Coordinated by the NCVO in England, it runs from 1-12th June, and is an opportunity to thank volunteers as well as encourage more people to give their time to helping charities through showcasing and offering volunteering opportunities. Last year more than 750 events took place, from awards ceremonies to tea parties and barbecues, and this year many charities are also expected to offer short-term, flexible or remote placements to encourage people to take part who are normally unable to commit.The end of Volunteers’ Week will coincide with The Patron’s Lunch on 12th June, celebrating the Queen’s lifetime service to the more than 600 charities and organisations to which she acts as a Patron, on her 90th birthday. Communities will be encouraged to participate by holding their own street party or event, and to use this opportunity to support their local communities through fundraising or giving of time.Justin Davis Smith, director of volunteering at the NCVO, said:“Volunteers’ Week is a time to celebrate the people in our communities who volunteer, giving their time and energy to help a whole multitude of causes. We hope that this bigger week of events and celebrations will encourage even more to take part – whether that’s by recognising the people that already given so much, or encouraging people to try volunteering for the first time.” Melanie May | 3 February 2016 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17  85 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis17 Tagged with: Events NCVO Volunteering Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Was Belarusian journalist held on drug charge framed?

first_img News Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists ImprisonedInternetFreedom of expressionJudicial harassment News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders (RSF) questions the circumstances of the arrest of a well-known Belarusian journalist who had collaborated on a documentary critical of President Lukashenko. The journalist, Vladimir Chudentsov, was arrested by Belarusian customs officers for possession of drugs as he was about to cross the border into Poland by train on 21 November.The customs officers claim they found 0.87 grams of cannabis in the clothes of Chudentsov, the editor of the independent online news agency by24.org. The police who searched his apartment later the same day claim that they also found drugs there.According to his lawyer, the blood test carried out on Chudentsov showed no trace of any drug in his blood. He is now in preventive detention and is facing a possible sentence of two to five years in prison under article 328 of the criminal code on a charge of possessing or transporting drugs. No date has so far been set for the trial.”The circumstances of Vladimir Chudentsov’s arrest raises the question why he was searched when Belarusian customs officers rarely check passengers as they are leaving the country,” RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk said.”Furthermore, it is strange that a journalist known for his prudence would carry drugs, especially as Belarus has draconian drug laws. If this case was fabricated, the use of such methods against a journalist would mark a disturbing escalation in Belarus’s suppression of the freedom to inform.”Chudentsov worked for state-owned media prior to 2013, when he launched by24.org, a news website that is very critical of both Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.He recently collaborated with Stsiapan Svyatlu, a blogger known as NEXTA, in making a documentary critical of Lukashenko that has been viewed more than 1.8 million times on YouTube. NEXTA posted a video in support of Chudentsov on YouTube after his arrest.When NEXTA organized an event in Minsk on 8 November, a reporter with the German public TV broadcaster ARD and his crew were detained by police for more than two hours to prevent them filming it.Belarus is ranked 153rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.

Open letter to Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama

first_imgJean-François JulliardSecretary-General Fiji’s press was a model for the rest of the Pacific for many years. The presence of newspapers, radio stations and even TV stations displaying a significant degree of independence allowed Fijian journalists to do their duty as professionals. June 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Open letter to Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama June 2, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Organisation RSF_en Follow the news on Asia – Pacific Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom to go further This decree means that Fijian journalists now risk being jailed at a time when the international trend is for press offences to be decriminalised. It provides for prison sentences for those who endanger public order and the public interest. Journalists and media executives can be tried before a Media Tribunal, which will also be able to intervene in print and broadcast media content. This is deplorable. Above all it will reinforce the already significant level of self-censorship that has existed since the coup d’état that brought you to power n 2006. It is true that this decree is not as repressive as the 2009 Public Emergency Regulations that institutionalised prior censorship, but it enshrines a desire to control and censor the media. Dear Prime Minister, We urge you to end your country’s international isolation by rescinding the Public Emergency Regulations and the Media Industry Development Decree. As things stand, your policies are preventing the international community, including the European Union, from resuming close cooperation with Fiji. The repressive regulations that you have introduced punish the Fijian people and jeopardise the development aid that the economy and society need. It is up to you and you alone whether your country continues to run this risk. Drafting a law specifically to punish a publication that is considered overly “negative” is unacceptable. We note, for example, that the law insists that a news organisation’s executives must all be Fijian citizens and must have been resident in Fiji for at least three years. The aim of this is to prevent experienced foreign journalists from being put in charge of the Fiji Times or any other Fijian media. The only newspaper that has resisted government control is the Fiji Times, which is now directly threatened with the possibility of disappearing as a result of a provision of the Media Industry Development Decree requiring 90 per cent of the shares of any Fijian news media to be locally owned. The country’s most popular newspaper, the Fiji Times, is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s Australia-based press group News Limited. Under the terms of the decree, News Limited now has three months to sell it or close it. News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Asia – Pacific center_img Receive email alerts Sincerely, News Because of your government’s obstinacy in wanting to censor your country’s privately-owned press, we support the adoption of international sanctions aimed at condemning the promulgation and strict application of these regulations and decrees. It should be noted that Fiji fell 73 places in the 2009 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, and is now ranked 152nd out of 175 countries. Paris, 29 June 2010 Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Commodore Frank BainimaramaPrime MinisterSuvaFiji Islands June 7, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns your decision to promulgate the Media Industry Development Decree yesterday, as it marks a dangerous step backwards for press freedom and media development in Fiji. June 2, 2021 Find out more News We also deplore the fact that the Public Emergency Regulations are still in place despite government promises that they would be lifted. As a result of the Public Emergency Regulations, criticism of your government’s policies has virtually disappeared from the Fijian press. Journalists can still cover business, society, culture and sports but there is no longer any critical analysis of the country’s now extremely curtailed political life. We hope you will give our comments your careful consideration. News Asia – Pacific In order to intimidate media owners and journalists and stress the firmness of your government’s position, attorney-general Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum said: “I wish to make it clear that any media organisation which fails to comply with this requirement shall cease to operate as a media organisation, and shall also be liable for an offence under the decree.”last_img read more

Her arrest came just a few days before a publication that supports the president called the Internet a “tool of subversion.”“Gholami is the second cyber-journalist currently detained and we fear there could be a major crackdown,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities no longer hide the fact they see most news and information channels as threats to Iran’s sovereignty. We call for the release of all detained cyber-dissidents.”The editor of the Azar Zan (http://azarwomen.blogfa.com/) blog, Gholami was already sentenced on 20 September to six months in prison by a revolutionary court in the northwestern city of Tabriz on a charge of “publicity against the Islamic Republic,” but she was still free pending the outcome of her appeal, for which no date has so far been set.A member of the Association of Women Journalists, Gholami became prominent as a result of her role in the women’s rights movement. She was detained for three weeks in August 2007 for criticising the police crackdown on demonstrations in various cities in Iranian Azerbaijan. She previously spent five years in prison in the 1980s because of her political activities.Theologian and online journalist Mojtaba Lotfi was arrested on 8 October for a posting a sermon by a well-known opponent of Supreme Guide Ayatollah Ali Khamenei online.

The government has, since 2003, had a committee dedicated to maintaining a blacklist of websites regarded as “illegal.” They currently include YouTube, Facebook and Orkut.The Tehran attorney-general’s adviser said on 19 November that the authorities were responsible for filtering out “five million websites.”At the same time, parliament is currently in the process of adopting a 2 July bill under which creating websites that promote “corruption, prostitution or apostasy” would be punishable by death.

‘The Music Has to Come Out’ at Ready’s Coffee Shop

first_imgDonna Drohan of Ocean City has a new record, “One More Ride,” available for purchase at Ready’s Coffee Shop.After two decades of auditions for theater and commercials in New York and another 20 years raising two children in Ocean City, Donna Drohan has lost none of her enthusiasm for singing.“The music has to come out,” Drohan said. “It can’t die in you.”And so at an age not-to-be-named, the mom and part-time waitress at Ready’s Coffee Shop has new record release.“One More Ride” is available for purchase at Ready’s and will be available online after a release party at the Library III restaurant in Egg Harbor Township next month. The CD includes covers of standards from Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party” to Dusty Springfield’s “I Only Want to Be With You.”A childhood friend from Long Island (Diane Lowman) wrote the CD’s only original song, “Moonlit Nights,” in memory of Drohan’s mother.“I’ve been talking about it for two years,” Drohan said, acknowledging the patience of her colleagues at Ready’s on Eighth Street.Drohan said she’s grateful for the encouragement of her boss, Doug Wing, and for his allowing her to sell the records at the shop.“The girls and the cooks and the customers at Ready’s are all wonderful,” she said.Drohan is a stage name. Donna is married to Craig Dougherty, and they are parents to Dale (stationed on a Navy submarine) and Courtney (attending the College of Osteopathic Medicine in Philadelphia).She has performed locally at the Deauville Inn in Strathmere, the Riverboat Club in Ocean City and the Eagle Theatre in Hammonton. Lenore Goldfarb, a singing teacher who helped her book jobs, connected her with Tony DeLuca, the local musician who helped her produce the new record.Among her favorite songs on the CD is “Puff the Magic Dragon” with its lyric “a dragon lives forever but not so little boys.”“That has stayed with me forever,” Drohan said.last_img read more

Open Letter: New Group Pushes for Action on Street Flooding

first_imgHaven Avenue between 34th and 29th streets during a December 2014 nor’easter.This letter is to inform you that a committee comprised of Fairness in Taxes members has been formed to address the problem of recurring flooding in our neighborhoods. Although property owners have called attention to the problem in the past, the city has been negligent in responding to repeated complaints. Mayor Gillian and City Council need to be reminded that the quality of life issues affecting property owners are more important than their wants. Where are our priorities?The flooding around our homes has only gotten worse in the past few years. Water can be seen spurting up out of storm drains at high tide even under clear skies. There has been an increase in flooding events as well as the increase in the depth of flood waters. Some have reported standing water as deep as 2 feet! Storm water flooding our homes, streets and sidewalks contains potentially deadly bacteria such as E.coli, garden materials like dirt, sand and mulch, animal urine and feces, herbicides, pesticides, broken glass, rusty screws and nails, wood, trash and more.Health concerns aside, many property owners are also experiencing recurring property damage from flood waters. Sidewalks and streets are crumbling, vehicles are being lost. Property owners are besieged by mold, and salt water intrusion is causing grass and plantings to die. You as a homeowner are expected to bear the financial burden of remedying the damage caused by the failure of the city to rectify the problem.The standard response is that we live on a barrier island and it’s going to flood. But the simple fact of the matter is our storm water system is antiquated. Storm water pipes no longer meet capacity requirements, and many pipes have deteriorated to the point that they no longer adequately handle storm water. Check valves, designed to allow water to flow out the system and prevent back flow, are either non-existent or non-functioning. In some neighborhoods pumping stations are required. The good news is that there is much the City can do to alleviate flooding in our neighborhoods. We don’t have to live with it. What is required is to prioritize street flooding and commit our resources to it.If you follow local news you know that municipal government has made a major commitment in the 5 year capital plan to infrastructure. Past experience shows us that throwing money at the problem doesn’t ensure that it will be rectified. There is a plan for repaving streets, but not for overhauling the storm water system and addressing the flooding issues we currently have. You can’t approach it piecemeal. Common sense tells us that a storm water plan needs to be integrated into the road repaving plan, and that we need a comprehensive plan for addressing both. Since road resurfacing is driving the project there are areas of town which regularly flood that are not addressed in the 5 year capital plan. Is your neighborhood one of them?We, the tax paying homeowners of Ocean City have the right to expect and demand that our elected city government stop the frivolous spending of millions of tax payer dollars and ensure the health and safety of our families, homes and property.What can you do? Please write, email or call Mayor Gillian and City Council and tell them to make street flooding a top priority before they take the final vote on the capital budget in February. If you would like to join the effort, contact the committee at [email protected] Please copy us on all correspondence to the City so we can keep track of it.Street Flooding Committee / Fairness in Taxeslast_img read more
