Irish Red Cross hit by fall in fundraising

first_img Tagged with: Finance Ireland Research / statistics Irish Red Cross hit by fall in fundraising A significant fall in donations has led to job losses at the Irish Red Cross, according to the Journal.ie.The Irish Red Cross’ General Secretary Liam O’Dwyer told the Journal.ie that he had to take “serious steps” in order to deal with financial pressures, including staff cuts and pulling out of long-term projects in Africa.O’Dwyer said that by half-way through 2018 the charity had raised €800k, compared to €1.1 million in the same period last year. This represents a 27% drop in public donations. In 2016 the charity had achieved a total income of under €7 million, which represented a 10% reduction on 2015.Three core support staff roles have been lost at head office in 2018, five staff have been redeployed, and four vacant positions will not be filled.O’Dwyer added that the drop in fundraising income was accompanied by an increase in costs due to regulation and governance, which he welcomed, acknowledging that other charities were experiencing similar pressures implementing GDPR, safeguarding and accounting standards.O’Dwyer said that when there is a major emergency “the Irish public donate extremely, extremely well and they respond very well”, but donations would have been affected by the fact there hasn’t been a major international emergency to donate to since 2015.He noted that trust was a challenge for charities in general in Ireland. According to the Irish Charities Engagement Monitor, trust in charities has dropped by six per cent this year. In particular, overseas aid and development charities ranked second lowest amongst respondents when asked if they trusted the sector ‘a great deal’.The Irish Red Cross has issued a statement on its restructuring plan, explaining:“The restructuring of this very diverse organisation is being carried out in conjunction with the development of a new Irish Red Cross three-year strategy, the intention being to create a more cost-effective organisation to support its members.”The Irish Red Cross has 28 area committees and 94 branches, together with its head office. Its annual report will be published in the late Autumn.

President Kagame asked to reverse decision to shut down RFI’s FM transmitter

first_imgNews Follow the news on Rwanda Organisation RSF_en Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa Covid-19 in Africa: RSF joins a coalition of civil society organizations to demand the release of imprisoned journalists on the continent Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders wrote to Rwandan President Paul Kagame yesterday in an attempt to persuade him to reverse his 27 November decision to stop FM retransmission of the French public radio station Radio France Internationale (RFI) in Rwanda. The text of the letter, which is signed by the organisation’s secretary-general, Robert Ménard, follows: “Our organisation is not taking a position on the crisis between France and Rwanda resulting from the conclusion of an investigation by French judge Jean-Louis Bruguière, which led your government to immediately break off diplomatic relations. We would simply like to explain to you why we think a news media of this standard should again be made available to the Rwandan public.The sudden termination of RFI’s broadcasts in a fit of governmental anger bodes ill for press freedom in Rwanda. It was a political action aimed at punishing France and its institutions for a decision taken by the French judiciary.In Reporters Without Borders’ view, nothing can justify silencing this news media. Punishing its country of origin or preventing the Rwandan public from hearing its news broadcasts are not valid reasons. It is an act of censorship contrary to democratic principles. It is also akin to blaming a foreign citizen for events taking place in their country, which is both unfair and dangerous.In our view, it is an error of judgment to identify RFI with the French government. RFI is known for the variety of its programming, its efforts to get close to its listeners and the conscientiousness of its journalists. The station’s management has publicly explained in the past that its statutes give it “complete editorial independence,” a degree of freedom which it has had the occasion to demonstrate. Reporters Without Borders cannot forget how, during the dark years before you became president, RFI correspondent Jean Hélène was one of the foreign reporters who covered the mounting dangers in Rwanda and the catastrophe of the 1994 genocide with the most lucidity and courage.RFI has repeatedly demonstrated its independence and has sometimes paid a high price for it. Its correspondent was expelled from Senegal in 2003 for her coverage of the war that makes life difficult for the population in the southern region of Casamance. The same punishment you have just inflicted was also imposed on RFI in Côte d’Ivoire in 2005, a year after Jean Hélène was murdered there. RFI’s correspondent in Madagascar was abruptly forced to return to France in 2005 despite his great love for Madagascar. RFI’s correspondent in Democratic Republic of Congo was the target of a very disturbing hate campaign this year and finally had to leave.RFI has been and continues to be a quality news outlet that is respected and appreciated by Rwandans. As a result, the leading victim of this measure is the Rwandan public, which has suffered a reduction in the diversity of the news sources available to it. Reporters Without Borders urges you not to make RFI’s Rwandan listeners pay the price of a political crisis between your country and France.I hope you will be persuaded by our arguments.” Receive email alerts November 27, 2020 Find out morecenter_img April 6, 2020 Find out more News RwandaAfrica RwandaAfrica BBC Africa’s “disproportionate and dangerous” dismissal of a journalist to go further November 29, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 President Kagame asked to reverse decision to shut down RFI’s FM transmitter News February 13, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Journalists targeted by virulent smear campaign

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders is very disturbed by the aggressive smear campaign that the Islamist and nationalist daily Yeni Akit (New Agreement) and its website, Habervaktim.com, have been waging in recent days against four leading journalists – Ali Bayramoglu, Cengiz Candar, Hasan Cemal and Yasemin Congar – because of their views on Turkey’s Kurdish issue. Politicians are also being attacked.”By targeting people committed to tolerance and peace, this campaign is trying to block any evolution in Turkish society,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Experience has shown the degree to which this kind of prejudiced, xenophobic and paranoid discourse is not just harmful but also dangerous. Words have meaning and the accusations levelled against these journalists expose them to real peril. This virulent hate campaign must stop at once and everything possible must be done to protect its targets.”Yeni Akit has been attacking the well-known columnist Ali Bayramoglu for several weeks, accusing him of being an Armenian who “defends Armenian ideas with a racist basis.” A defender of minority rights and friend of Hrant Dink, the Turkish-Armenian newspaper editor murdered in 2007, Bayramoglu has been branded by Yeni Akit as a “despicable enemy of the Turks” and as one who “even hides the fact that he is Armenian from his friends.” Alluding to the armed separatist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the newspaper said Bayramoglu’s “support for the terrorist organization” had been demonstrated by his participation in a conference in London entitled “In search of solutions to the Kurdish issue.” The 10 August issue of Yeni Akit described Cengiz Candar and Hasan Cemal as enthusiastic PKK propagandists and supporters of the Kurdish separatist cause. An article headlined “Sakik’s bombs,” supposedly based on a letter from Semdin Sakik, a jailed former PKK leader who has renounced his previous loyalties, said the PKK regarded them as “very valuable” assets.”As (Cemal) was not allowed to visit Imrali (the prison where PKK leader Abdullah Öcalan is being held), he went to Qandil (the area just inside northern Iraq that is a PKK base),” the article said, adding that he has “glorified the Öcalan-Karayilan duo.” Yeni Akit went on to claim that Candar “surpasses PKK fanatics in heaping praise on the organization and its leaders.” Such allegations evoke painful memories within the media. Candar and two other journalists, Nazli Ilicak and Mehmet Ali Birand, were fired in February 1997, during the last military intervention in Turkish politics, after “statements” by Sakik appeared in several secularist newspapers. It subsequently turned out that these “revelations” were orchestrated by the armed forces high command, most of who members are now charged in the investigation into alleged attempts to destabilize the current civilian government.A petition entitled “We demand justice” has been launched by a number of intellectuals and journalists including well-known conservatives such as Hilal Kaplan, Mehmet Bekaroglu, Ömer Faruk Gergerligolu and Emine Uçak Erdogan. It criticizes Yeni Akit’s “irresponsible attitude,” demands an end to the intimidation campaign and urges the media to respect professional ethics.The journalists’ union TGC and the human rights group IHD have asked the police to protect the journalists concerned. Candar and Bayramoglu have announced their intention to sue Yeni Akit.The demands of Turkey’s Kurdish minority continue to be one of the most sensitive issues for the Turkish media to cover. The crackdown on peaceful Kurdish activists and Kurdish media has intensified in recent months and the trial of 44 pro-Kurdish journalists, of whom 36 are in preventive detention, is due to open on 10 September.Tension has increased since mid-July, when the PKK launched a major offensive in Turkey after Kurds took control of several towns in northern Syria.

When we opened the 1968 season, we only had about three, no more than five seniors. We were doing things different from what they had been doing and some of the players couldn’t take it. I don’t think we won more than one or two games but we were playing Opp and Troy, a lot of good folks.”The next year, things began to turn around for Booth and the Bulldogs. They began to learn how it feels to win and it was a good feeling.“I give credit to the kids that stuck with it,” Booth said. “When you work as hard as we worked and there’s no ‘Rah, Rah!’ for the effort, it’s hard to keep working hard but they did. And, their parents were right there to support them. I still have the highest regard for those players and their parents. They are good people.” All of the hard work paid off with an invitation to play in the 1969 Lions Bowl.“Back then, there weren’t playoffs to the extent we have now,” Booth said. “It was an honor for the players and the school to be invited to the Lions Bowl, which was the oldest high school bowl game in the state.”Booth said the Lions Bowl in Headland was a big thing.“They had big parade and a Lions Bowl Queen–that was from Headland,” he said. “They had an event for the coaches and press the night before the game. We had a good time and were excited to be playing in a bowl game. It was big for the players, the parents, the school and Brundidge.”At game time, the Bulldogs were growling-ready. But less than a minute after kick-off, they were tucking their tails.“The Rams took the opening kickoff and ran it back for a touchdown,” Booth said. “Headland had 7 points on the scoreboard before the lights got warmed up.”The Bulldogs could have licked their wounds and given up. But, with the luxury of three weeks to prepare for the game, Booth had added a little razzle-dazzle to the Dawgs’ playbook.So, down 7 points with hardly a minute gone in the game, Booth decided to call the razzle-dazzle play the Bulldogs had worked on 10 times a day for three weeks.“On our first play from scrimmage, quarterback Randy Walls faked deep into the line, pulled the ball out, dropped back and hit Kenneth Connell on a Z-out route. Kenneth was as wide open as a barn gate. The thing that made that play work was the blocking of the offensive line. They had to hold their blocks a long time and they did it just like we had practiced it all those time.”Perhaps, it’s a bit odd that neither Walls nor Booth remembers the drama of the game. They’re not sure if the score rocked back and forth or if the Bulldogs got ahead and forced the Rams to play catch up or if the Bulldog’s came scratching from behind to take the win.Perhaps that story will be told on Saturday, September 16 when the 1969 Lions Bowl Champions gather for a reunion dinner at Troy University’s Hall of Honor building on the university campus. A reception will be at 5 p.m. with the dinner to follow at 6 p.m.All PCHS team members and managers, cheerleaders, majorettes, color guard and Pep Club members and others who support the Bulldogs are invited to attend.Tickets are $25 each and include the buffet dinner. Make checks available to Paul Butler, 2643 Aimee Drive, Montgomery, AL 36106. Those interested in touring the new PCHS Field house may call or text Ronnie Ingram at 334-0590-2232 for information. “If memory serves me right …”Randy Walls, the junior quarterback for the Pike County High School Bulldogs 1969 Lions Bowl team, is not a fisherman at heart. If he were, he would have stretch out a tale to end all tales about the 30-27 win over the Headland Rams on that cold November night in the Wiregrass.“That was 40-something years ago and it’s hard to remember,” Walls said, laughing. “I don’t want to say something that might not be exactly right. I do remember throwing a touchdown pass on our first play of the game and I remember we won and how excited we were … and it was cold, real cold.” Target practice: Quarterbacks will be on display at Boise State Saturday’s showdown between Troy and Boise State could provide the nation with one of the top quarterback duels of the… read more As for a play-by-play commentary, Walls said he couldn’t do that But he knew Coach Bob Booth would remember and he remembers Coach Booth.And, with almost certainty, all members of the PCHS Bulldogs 1969 Lions Bowl team will remember the game and the coach the led them into Headland’s Yarborough Stadium.When Booth took the head coaching position, the Bulldogs had not posted a winning season since 1963 when Allen Treadwell was the head coach. A couple of those years, the Bulldogs had come up bone dry in the win column. PCHS football was nothing to cheer about.

Serious buyers only: The 10 priciest new Hamptons listings

first_img Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Full Name* Share via Shortlink For a mere $175 million, 700 Meadow Lane can be yours.Never has there been a better time to list a Hamptons estate. The pandemic supercharged interest in vacation homes as well as primary residences, and with virtually anyplace with broadband now qualifying as a workplace, East End mansions can now be both.Add to that exceedingly low inventory and some very swollen bank accounts, thanks to Wall Street’s robust recovery, and the potential exists for seemingly inflated asking prices to be met, if not exceeded. That said, aspirational pricing is still a hazard for home shoppers and real estate agents alike.Here are the 10 highest-priced listings to hit the Hamptons market this year, not including a Bridgehampton estate asking $52 million that only became available this week, after this ranking was compiled.1. Mylestone at Meadow Lane | $175 millionFormer advertising executive Marcia Riklis’ waterfront home at 700 Meadow Lane was listed in January for more than twice what Ken Griffin paid for a slightly smaller property next door. Riklis’ mansion spans 15,521 square feet and has 11 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and four half-bathrooms. A modern Tudor-style, it sits on eight acres and features an attached caretaker’s cottage, basketball and tennis courts and outdoor entertaining spaces. Bespoke Real Estate has the listing.2. 90 & 100 Briar Patch | $95 millionThis 11-acre East Hampton estate was put on the market in February. Its centerpiece is a 13,800-square-foot mansion with 10 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and three half-bathrooms. The listing also includes a guest house, pool cabana and two garages. The home was built in 1931 by Arthur C. Jackson, who also prepared plans for the New York Public Library and Lasata, the childhood summer home of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Bespoke Real Estate has the listing.3. 63 Duck Pond Lane | $35 millionThe flagship property of homebuilder Hamptons Luxury Estates went on the market in April. The 16,000-square-foot Southampton home sits on two acres and has nine bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. Designed in part by Alexander Gorlin and Bennett Leifer, it has a sunken tennis court, an indoor spa with an infinity jacuzzi and dry sauna. The listing is offered directly by Hamptons Luxury Estates, said its president, Yale Fishman.4. 612 Halsey Lane | $35 millionThis Bridgehampton mansion, listed in March, has 10 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and five half baths. The home is about 17,000 square feet, sits on 11.5 acres and has a library, home theater and recreational space including a two-lane bowling alley, virtual golf and rock-climbing wall. Douglas Elliman’s Erica Grossman has the listing. The home first hit the market in June 2019 for nearly $40 million, according to Out East. It has been on and off the market since then, but had its first and only price chop when it was relisted in March.5. 359 Meadow Lane | $32 millionThis Southampton estate was listed by Corcoran in January. The 6,188-square-foot home sits on 5.6 acres and has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and one half-bathroom. Features include a guest house, tennis court and heated pool. Tim Davis and Thomas Davis are the brokers. In 2019, Bespoke Real Estate marketed the property paired with a mansion at 660 Halsey Neck Lane for $72.5 million.6. 569 Ox Pasture Road | $32 millionThis Southampton property went on the market in March. Built in 1970, the single-family home spans 9,333 square feet and includes nine bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two half baths. The 4.6-acre property features a tennis court, three-car garage, powder room and greenhouse. There’s also three spaces for entertaining, a sauna deck and a solarium with views of the water. Douglas Elliman’s Erica Grossman has the listing. The property was last sold in 2008 for $11.7 million.7. 25 Quimby Lane | $28.5 millionCondé Nast power couple Christopher Mitchell and Pilar Guzmán listed their home in March.
