Overall we estimate PDAs will improve our bottom line by about £100,000 per annum”. Shelter’s in-house face-to-face fundraising team was set up in 2004. The charity currently receives about £2 million each year from donors recruited using its in-house teams. The team consists of 25 fundraisers, who this year will recruit an estimated 10,000 regular givers.center_img Howard Lake | 11 September 2009 | News Matt Goody, Head of Direct Marketing at Shelter, said: “Under our old paper based system, we couldn’t process around 6% of the direct debits, because bank details could not be verified in the street. Now this problem has disappeared. The charity won the award for “Best Use of Face to Face” at this year’s Institute of Fundraising National Awards. Advertisement Shelter’s in-house face-to-face fundraising team has started using mobile technology in the form of handheld PDAs to help improve the speed, accuracy and security of supporter acquisition.Each fundraiser now has a handheld device with software developed by mobile specialists TAAP, which checks the supporter’s bank details when the sort code and account number are entered in the street. The device can capture the donor’s signature digitally, speeding up the process of signing to confirm the direct debit donation. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

No a la OTAN y a la Quad

first_imgLos primeros 100 días del gobierno de Joe Biden han recibido la mayor publicidad por sus $2 billones de dólares para el alivio de COVID-19 y otra propuesta de 2 billones de dólares para infraestructura. El proyecto de ley de infraestructuras -supuestamente financiado con impuestos a los más ricos 1%- aún no ha sido aprobado. Algunos lo llaman el programa social más amplio desde la Gran Sociedad de Lyndon Baines Johnson.LBJ, recordamos aquí, escribió su historia menos con su Gran Sociedad que con su escalada de la guerra de Estados Unidos en contra de Vietnam. Esta escalada creó miseria en Indochina, llevó a Johnson a retirarse anticipadamente y, finalmente, a una ignominiosa derrota del imperialismo estadounidense.También Biden propone infraestructuras pero provoca conflictos en todo el mundo. Ahora mismo -primavera de 2021- las principales maniobras militares tienen como objetivo a Rusia y China.Los aliados imperialistas europeos de Washington dieron la bienvenida al régimen de Biden. El nuevo presidente de Estados Unidos parecía más dispuesto a dar a estos aliados de la OTAN -Gran Bretaña, Francia, Alemania, Italia, etc.- una parte más razonable de la riqueza saqueada al resto del mundo. Y menos críticas socarronas. En público, al menos.Ahora las maniobras “Defender Europa” de la OTAN cuentan con 28.000 tropas de Estados Unidos y 25 aliados y socios de la OTAN bajo la dirección del Pentágono que extienden COVID-19 por Europa mientras amenazan a Rusia. (Véase el artículo de WW, tinyurl.com/ysytfa84)Al otro lado del globo, la Marina de Estados Unidos surcará las aguas del Mar de China Meridional y Oriental a partir del 11 de mayo en alianza con sus compañeros de explotación de Australia, Japón e India -a los que se unirá este año por primera vez la Marina francesa.Como tiene cuatro miembros, llamaron a esta alianza “el Quad”, como en cuadrilátero. Con la incorporación de Francia, ahora la llaman Quad+1, aunque parece que la adhesión de Francia sigue siendo condicional.La Quad dirige su energía y sus buques de guerra contra China, bajo la dirección del imperialismo estadounidense. Todos ellos tienen amplias relaciones económicas con China. Aunque la Cuarta no ha alcanzado todavía el nivel de una OTAN asiática, la participación del imperialismo francés muestra su potencial.El colonialismo francés se adueno de Indochina durante un siglo hasta la ignominiosa derrota de los gobernantes franceses en 1954 en la batalla de Dien Bien Phu en Vietnam. Hay que preguntarse si el actual régimen francés sueña con un regreso, esta vez subordinado a Washington. Es un sueño que puede convertirse rápidamente en una pesadilla. Los estrategas del imperialismo japonés, que en su día ocupó China, Corea y, durante un periodo más breve, Filipinas y otros países del Indo-Pacífico, deberían recordarlo también.Un diluvio mediático corporativo que demoniza a China acompaña la demostración de fuerza de los buques de guerra cerca de Taiwán y las islas Spratly, lo que aumenta el peligro de una nueva Guerra Fría, o incluso de una caliente. Culpan a China de controlar su crisis COVID-19 y de reanudar su crecimiento económico. Los medios de comunicación también acusan a China de gobierno autocrático, violaciones de los derechos humanos, etc.Los mismos medios de comunicación podrían acusar fácilmente a la Cuadrilateral -el desastre pandémico de la India y su trato a los musulmanes, otras minorías y “castas inferiores”, el trato de Australia a su población aborigen, los asesinatos policiales y el encarcelamiento masivo en Estados Unidos, por ejemplo- de muchos más delitos, y éstos con una sólida base en la realidad.Estos ejercicios de guerra pueden parecer sólo advertencias lejanas de peligro. Pero lo más probable es que sean los síntomas de un sistema capitalista e imperialista en declive, pero todavía capaz de causar grandes daños. Por muy suave que parezca Biden en su país, más vale que la clase obrera y el movimiento progresista de aquí se mantengan en guardia contra una nueva guerra imperialista.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Bolsonaro poses a serious threat to press freedom and democracy in Brazil

first_img Help by sharing this information RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America One of Brazil’s most respected journalists, Miriam Leitão (GloboNews;O Globo;TV Globo), has been subjected to a massive smear campaign, receiving hundreds of insults and threats on social networks as a result of an article published on 5 October about the dangers that Bolsonaro’s candidacy poses to Brazilian democracy. More than any other platform, it is WhatsApp that has been used to organize and circulate false information – designed above all to discredit journalists whose reporting is critical of the PSL – together with smear campaigns and conspiracy theories. Organisation News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is very concerned for Brazil’s future as Jair Bolsonaro, the clear favourite to win the presidential election run-off on 28 October, continues to wage a campaign marked by hate speech, disinformation, violence against journalists and contempt for human rights, fuelling tension and fear of dark times ahead for democracy and press freedom. Credits AFP Receive email alerts May 13, 2021 Find out more Authoritarianism and contempt for human rights News Media targeted According to the Brazilian Association of Investigative Journalism (ABRAJI), there have been at least 137 election-related physical and online attacks against journalists in 2018 by activists of all political tendencies. Alarm after two journalists murdered in Brazil On 7 July, Bolsonaro was asked about an Inter-American Court of Human Rights decision to condemn Brazil for failing to prosecute those responsible for the journalist Vladimir Herzog’s murder during the military dictatorship. He responded by suggesting that Herzog killed himself, which is what the military claimed at the time. Two other women journalists, who cannot be named for safety reasons, suffered the same fate. One, a reporter for the NE10 news website, was attacked and threatened with rape by Bolsonaro supporters on the day of the first-round voting. “When the commander is president, all the press will be killed,” they told her when they saw her press card. April 27, 2021 Find out more 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies News False claims that Leitão was arrested for a hold-up in the 1960s were widely circulated online. In fact, she was detained and tortured for political reasons in 1972, during the military dictatorship. BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsEvents InternetFreedom of expressionViolence A nationalist and staunch defender of the 1964-1985 military dictatorship, Bolsonaro has openly advocated the use of torture since 1999. He said in a TV interview that the military “should have killed 30,000 people starting with Fernando Henrique Cardoso,” a former president who was exiled during the dictatorship. He said on a radio station in 2016 that “the dictatorship’s mistake was to torture without killing.” BrazilAmericas Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsEvents InternetFreedom of expressionViolence During the campaign, Bolsonaro has openly opposed the work of human rights defenders, accusing them of defending criminals instead of victims and of working against Brazil. He has threatened to stop public funding for the human rights sector and has said that, when president, he will pull Brazil out of the UN Human Rights Council, calling it “a meeting of communists with no commitment to Latin America.”Brazil is ranked 102nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index. Reports After one of the most confused and polarized campaigns in Brazil’s recent history, Bolsonaro, the far-right leader of the Social Liberal Party (PSL), got 46% of the votes in the first round, far more than runner-up Fernando Haddad of the left-wing Workers’ Party (PT), who got 29%. Follow the news on Brazil In this tense climate, journalists have been the favourite targets of Bolsonaro supporters and hate groups, especially on social networks. Many fact-checking journalists have been harassed during the campaign, as RSF reported on 28 September. Bolsonaro was indeed stabbed in the stomach and was badly injured during a visit to Minas Gerais state on 6 September. At the time, he cut back his public statements and appearances and posed as the victim of the climate of hate, although he had been the climate’s main instigator.  RSF_en to go further A member of eight different parties since entering politics in 1988 and a member of the federal chamber of deputies since 1991, Bolsonaro has long been notorious for his populist and aggressive comments, his calls for a return to order and discipline, and his open attacks on women, gays and Brazil’s indigenous population. Declaring himself to be the “anti-system candidate,” he has built his support through social networks, where his statements and his views have circulated widely, sidestepping the traditional media. “The hate speech and disinformation campaigns by the candidate’s supporters against their political opponents are undermining Brazil’s already highly polarized society,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Brazilian voters must not be taken in by a sham discourse that conceals real violence, a violence that will not spare journalism. Jair Bolsonaro poses a serious threat to press freedom and democracy.” April 15, 2021 Find out more A 63-year-old former army officer, Bolsonaro announced just minutes after the first-round results that he intended to “put a final stop to all forms of activism in Brazil,” succinctly summarizing his authoritarian and reactionary ideology. In a country where two-thirds of the population get their news on social networks, WhatsApp has played a key role in the campaign. It is usurping the traditional news outlets and, according to a DataFolha survey released on 3 October, is the preferred source of information for 61% of Bolsonaro’s voters, of the mainstream media. Asked about the violence seen all over the country, Bolsonaro initially just talked of isolated cases. “I have no control over the millions and millions of people who support me,” he said on 9 October. “Let’s not get things back to front. I was the one who as stabbed (…) the violence and intolerance is coming from the other camp.” October 18, 2018 Bolsonaro poses a serious threat to press freedom and democracy in Brazillast_img read more

A new approach needed to tackle Limerick housing crisis

first_img TAGSAlan JacquesCllr Maurice QuinlivanEconomic and Social Research Institute (ESRI)homelessnesslimerickLive RegisterNovas InitiativesSinn Fein Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Advertisement WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Cllr Maurice QuinlivanA CALL by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) for a €500 million investment programme for social housing and growth has been welcomed as “a good start to tackling the massive housing crisis in Limerick”.The ESRI made the call for funds in their 2015 budget submission, and Limerick City North councillor Maurice Quinlivan maintains that it would not only help deliver “decent, stable accommodation”, but would also put thousands of people back to work.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “A huge amount of people on the Live Register have construction experience and this investment has the potential to deliver real jobs in Limerick,” he said.According to Cllr Quinlivan, Limerick has a huge housing crisis with high numbers in mortgage arrears, rents rising out of control, a complete lack of social housing and escalating homelessness. This situation, he insists, is a direct consequence of not only austerity but lack of government policy and slow reaction.“This housing crisis is a tsunami of bad policy, austerity and undelivered commitments from Government. While this proposal from the ESRI has the potential to make a real impact on the issue of housing and unemployment, it is only a good start,” he said.In its 2015 budget submission, Sinn Féin has called for a €1 billion investment in social housing stock to deliver homes and jobs.“These two proposals from the ESRI and Sinn Féin need to be delivered as a priority as the Government cannot ignore the housing crisis any longer,” Cllr Quinlivan concluded.Meanwhile, Novas Initiatives, the largest provider of homeless services in the Mid-West, has welcomed the proposal by the ESRI to invest in social housing. Head of Novas’ homeless services, Anne Cronin, believes such an investment would make positive inroads into the housing crisis both locally and nationally.“One of the greatest barriers, experienced by Novas, from moving people on from temporary homeless accommodation is the utter lack of affordable, adequate housing in the private rented market. We are faced with the same problems when seeking to accommodate families presenting to our Intensive Family Support service, with the consequences even more devastating as children are becoming effected by the crisis.“A dedicated building programme to support marginalised groups excluded from private rented accommodation would in the long term improve the situation significantly. However, we also need more immediate measures to be developed in tandem,” she said.

Troy University’s Frequency vocal jazz ensemble to perform Tuesday

first_img Print Article Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author The Troy University vocal jazz ensemble frequency, will celebrate 10 years with its spring performance at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Long Hall on the university campus.“It’s hard to believe that 10 years has come and gone,” said Dr. Diane Orlofsky, frequency director. “When I started the group, my hope was that it would take root and fill a niche. I never imagined how vital this group would become in recruiting prospective students.”Orlofsky said there is something special about working with ensemble vocal jazz.“Working with frequency through these 10 years has been a blast,” she said, adding that Tuesday’s concert will be extra special, because it is a milestone year for the vocal jazz ensemble. By Jaine Treadwell Skip “I love all the music we are performing, but there is something very special about hearing recognizable jazz standards masterfully arranged for a mixed jazz ensemble,” Orlofsky said. “For example, the students will be singing a Darmon Meader arrangement of George and Ira Gershwin’s tune from the late 30’s, ‘Love is Here to Stay,’ written for the movie, ‘The Goldwyn Follies.’”Another tune is from a 1960’s musical, “Flora, The Red Menace,” originally sung by Liza Minelli that Dave Barduhn has faithfully arranged for mixed jazz ensemble, keeping true to the poignancy of the original ballad,” Orlofsky said.“This is why I love ensemble vocal jazz – the possibilities for re-discovering old standards are endless!”Orlofsky said a couple of tunes have been reprised for the spring concert that were included on frequency’s 2011 “Fields of Gold” CD along with an exciting piece from 2013 that will feature members of POPulus on vocal percussion.

Plea grows ‘more urgent by the minute’: What we know one week into search for abducted 13-year-old Hania Aguilar

first_imgFBI(LUMBERTON, N.C.) — It’s been one week since a 13-year-old girl was kidnapped in front of her North Carolina home before school.Now, investigators’ pleas for more information grow “more and more urgent by the minute,” according to FBI spokeswoman Shelley Lynch.Eighth-grader Hania Noleia Aguilar was kidnapped just before 7 a.m. on Nov. 5 at the Rosewood Mobile Home park in Lumberton, said Lumberton Police Chief Michael McNeil.Hania had walked outside with her aunt’s car keys when a family member saw a man dressed in all black with a yellow bandanna over his face approach the teen and force her into the SUV, police said.The suspect then stole the vehicle and drove away with Hania, police said. The car was recovered Thursday on Quincey Drive in Lumberton.FBI agents are now looking to speak with everyone who lives near the mobile home park or on the road where the SUV was found.Investigators have also released surveillance footage of a man they’d like to speak to in connection with the search.The man was seen wearing light-colored shoes, a light-colored shirt and a hoodie walking south on Lambath Road before making a left on Highway 41 toward the trailer park Monday morning, FBI supervisor Andy de la Rocha told reporters last week. The man was the only person seen walking in the neighborhood in that part of the day, De la Rocha said.“Someone knows this man and we need you to call us,” De la Rocha said in a statement. “Maybe you recognize the way he walks, his mannerisms, or maybe he will recognize himself on TV. The public was critical in the recovery of the SUV, now we need you to come through again for us.”The FBI has also requested surveillance footage from residents and local business owners so investigators can construct a detailed timeline of when and how the stolen SUV was abandoned.The FBI is offering a $15,000 reward and the North Carolina governor’s office is offering an additional $5,000 reward.
