We will identify sites well loved by their communities and protect these spaces forever. The associated activity on site can help catalyse a local community to use their recreational space and get active.”The programme opened for applications on 22nd May, with a deadline for the first round of 7th July. Information on eligibility criteria and how to apply is available on the Fields in Trust site.  65 total views,  1 views todaycenter_img London Marathon Charitable Trust has announced its first UK-wide funding programme, aimed at protecting open spaces and tackling physical inactivity across the UK.The programme is an Active Spaces partnership between The London Marathon Charitable Trust and Fields in Trust, with £675,000 set aside by the Trust for 2017/18 to safeguard 50 green spaces. The funding will be used to protect these spaces in perpetuity from development, with each site also awarded a grant of up to £5,000 by the Trust to fund programmes that inspire the local community to get active.In addition, England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and Wales will each see one site that demonstrates the most significant impact receive a major grant of £25,000 for their activation programme.Landowners and communities across the UK can apply online to protect a site and secure funding for programmes. Sites will be selected for support following an assessment of the proposed activation programme.This is the first time the Trust has worked nationally.

The London Marathon Charitable Trust has now made the decision to launch its first UK-wide programme to reflect the fact that participants in events organised by London Marathon Events come from all over the UK.Sir Rodney Walker, chairman of The London Marathon Charitable Trust, said:“Since 1981, The London Marathon Charitable Trust has funded a huge range of projects in London, Surrey and other areas where London Marathon Events Ltd has organised events. Participants in those events come from all over the UK and we feel now is the right time to make funding available to every community to safeguard much-loved local parks and green spaces and inspire more people to lead a more active lifestyle and increase the number of people regularly taking part in sports and physical activities. “Helen Griffiths, chief executive of Fields in Trust, added: Advertisement Tagged with: environment Funding grants sport 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.

Magazine editor receives death threat

first_img June 1, 2021 Find out more Mass international solidarity campaign launched in support of Maria Ressa News Help by sharing this information News News Reporters Without Borders today voiced great concern about a death threat received by Glenda Gloria, the editor of the Manila-based magazine Newsbreak, and it called on the head of the police, Gen. Arturo C. Lomibao, to order an investigation and ensure she is protected.”In the current political context, it is essential for the press to be able to work without being targeted by threats, intimidation or censorship, and it is the duty of the police to protect threatened journalists,” the organisation said.The threat against Gloria took the form of a funeral wreath that arrived at her home on 2 August. On a ribbon attached to the flowers there were words of condolences signed, “From your loyal friends.” The wreath was sent by a man aged about 30 who drove a black car.Newsbreak said it is taking the threat seriously and believed it was linked to its investigative reporting.Gloria reported in the 4 July issue that the army’s intelligence service was the leading suspect in a case of telephone tapping that has shaken President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo’s government. Newsbreak has often reported about corruption and abuse of authority, including cases in which the president herself has allegedly been involved.Five journalists have been killed since the start of the year in the Philippines in connection with their work.

War of words and figures as press gets less access to the field

first_imgNews Sri Lanka: Journalist manhandled by notorious police inspector currently on trial RSF_en January 13, 2021 Find out more Sri LankaAsia – Pacific Organisation Reporters Without Borders voiced deep concern today about the fact that journalists are being denied all access to war zones while a war of words and figures is being waged between the government and the Tamil armed separatists, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE).“This week’s Padahuthurai bombing tragically showed that the lack of independent information is detrimental to the public interest and allows the two sides to feed their propaganda,” the press freedom organisation said.“It is imperative that the president should order the army to allow journalists access to the theatre of military operations and to the zones controlled by the LTTE,” Reporters Without Borders added. “It is important that the LTTE should also ensure that journalists are able to move about freely.”The organisation called on President Mahinda Rajapaksa to do everything possible to allow Jaffna-based newspapers to get supplies of newsprint and ink quickly in order to be able to continue publishing. The local press is in danger of disappearing because of serious problems of supplies and distribution.The Tamil dailies Uthayan, Valampuri and Yarl Thinakkural have been reduced to publishing four-page issues instead of ones containing nearly 20 pages, which they normally produce. They could be forced to stop publishing altogether after 15 January if the authorities, especially the army, do not let them have newsprint and ink delivered from Colombo.Northern Sri Lanka is suffering serious shortages as a result of the closure of the A9 highway from Colombo to Jaffna, which goes through areas controlled by the LTTE. The price of newsprint has tripled in recent weeks. The Tamil population in the Jaffna region relies on these three dailies as its source of news and information.Uthayan was one of the nominees for the Reporters Without Borders press freedom prize in 2006. Four of its employees in Jaffna were killed last year and the newspaper’s premises were attacked several times. Most of the journalists working for Vaalampuri and Yarl Thinakkural have been threatened because of their coverage of the situation in the Jaffna peninsula.In recent weeks, the armed forces and the LTTE have been waging a war of words and figures about ongoing military operations. On 2 January, the Sri Lanka air force bombed what it described as an LTTE military base near the western village of Padahuthurai. The Tamil Tigers responded that the air strike killed 15 civilians without hitting any military objective. No independent journalist has been able to enter the area.As a result, some of the Sinhalese and English-language media in Colombo have relayed the information provided by the government, without verifying it, while Tamil-language media and websites have been using the information and pictures provided by the LTTE. In the case of Padahuthurai, the death of civilians was confirmed only because of the bishop of Mannar’s presence in the area.The press has not been allowed to cover the fighting taking place in the eastern Vaharai region. Thousands of civilians are trapped in an area surrounded by government troops, and are being prevented from fleeing by the LTTE.The army has been stopping the press from entering combat zones and regions controlled by the LTTE for the past several months. Reporters Without Borders already condemned this last August. The Sri Lankan army denied several journalists access to strategic towns such as Muttur where dozens of civilians had been killed in fighting.The lack of independent reporting feeds rumors and propaganda. The governmental Daily News newspaper recently claimed, without any evidence, that Norwegian mediators had offered a TV set to the head of the LTTE.These press freedom violations are being compounded by the self-censorship that has become obligatory as a result of the restoration of anti-terrorism legislation in December. The government had been planning to arrest Sunday Leader editor Lasantha Wickremathunga under its provisions last week for revealing that a luxurious bunker was being built for the president.At the same time, three state media journalists were last month summoned for questioning by the police while a leading investigative journalist, Iqbal Attas, said he had been forced to censor himself on security issues because of the reactivation of the anti-terrorism legislation.

Under the Guidelines for Appointments to State Boards, these board positions are advertised and recruited through the stateboards.ie process. It is usual practice to advertise the Chairperson position first followed by the ordinary board member positions. Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The LDA Chairperson role has been advertised on stateboards.ie with a closing date for applications of 29th April 2021. It is open to members of the interim board of the existing LDA entity to apply for the Chairperson and other Board positions should they wish to do so.Commenting Minister O’Brien said “I would encourage suitably qualified candidates to apply for this post. I intend to fulfil the Programme for Government commitment to ensure that the LDA Board includes a cross-spectrum of housing, financial, governance and other independent experts needed to fulfil its remit. Oireachtas colleagues have also made some proposals for additional skillsets to be represented on the LDA Board which I am certainly open to considering.The LDA is already progressing a number of important strategic projects which will produce significant levels of affordable homes on public lands. It is an exciting long term project, which will profoundly shape the regeneration of our urban centres over the coming years and deliver much needed homes. If you feel you have the right skillsets and want to drive housing delivery, I would encourage you to apply to serve on the LDA Board as and when the board roles are advertised.” Minister O’Brien also confirmed that he has received notification from Mr. John Moran, who has served as interim LDA Chairperson since January 2019 that he does not intend to seek the Chairperson role for the new Land Development Agency (LDA) commercial agency. Mr Moran will continue as interim LDA Chairperson until the extension of his original term expires on 1st May 2021. The Minister said “I would like to take this opportunity to thank John for all his work on behalf of the LDA since his appointment in January 2019. John has played a key role in setting the strategic direction of the LDA, putting in place corporate governance structures for the organisation and overseeing the initial LDA projects and strategic initiatives. He has also performed a vital communications role in highlighting the central role that the LDA will play in delivering and implementing Project Ireland 2040, the Government’s plan to create sustainable communities and help reduce urban sprawl. In particular, I would like to note the major contribution that John has made in developing the LDA’s regional city strategies and the various master-planning processes underway in our cities in conjunction with the relevant local authorities. In time, these processes will bear fruit in terms of balanced regional growth in Ireland. I know John is involved in other important initiatives and I wish him well in those ventures,” he concluded.

Anita Hill pens opinion piece on forgiveness, Biden and the #MeToo movement

first_imgGeorge Frey/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — In an opinion piece published in the New York Times, Anita Hill wrote that the cultural shifts brought about by the #MeToo movement might have begun in 1991, had the Senate Judiciary Committee, at the time led by Joe Biden, responded more seriously to allegations of sexual misconduct.The piece was published days after Jill Biden, a college professor and wife of the former vice president, said “it’s time to move on” from the controversy of the confirmation hearings her husband presided over.“He apologized for the way the hearings were run,” Jill Biden said in an interview Tuesday on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” “And so now it’s kind of — it’s time to move on”Hill, a professor at Brandeis University, testified during the 1991 hearings that Justice Clarence Thomas had made unwanted advances and lewd comments. At the time Hill was a young law professor and had worked for Thomas.Biden, a former vice president and 2020 presidential candidate, led the Senate Judiciary Committee during Thomas’ confirmation and has received scrutiny for the way he handled the hearings. He has expressed regret over the way Hill was treated during the hearings and ultimately voted against Thomas.Biden has said that he is responsible for the way Hill was treated during the confirmation hearings.In the New York Times, Hill wrote that the 2018 hearings confirming Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, amid allegations of sexual misconduct, signaled that cultural changes have not come about as quickly as some may believe.“As the #MeToo revelations laid bare the truth of the overwhelming size of the problem, victims dared hope that our political leaders would take up the challenge of confronting it,” Hill wrote. “But that hope was dashed last year.”During the hearings, Hill wrote, “a new generation was forced to conclude that politics trumped a basic and essential expectation: that claims of sexual abuse would be taken seriously.”In the final paragraph of her New York Times piece, Hill wrote, “Sexual violence is a national crisis that requires a national solution. We miss that point if we end the discussion at whether I should forgive Mr. Biden.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Sea ice is a mushy layer

first_imgSea ice is a two-phase, two-component, reactive porous medium: an example of what is known in other contexts as a mushy layer. The fundamental conservation laws underlying the mathematical description of mushy layers provide a robust foundation for the prediction of sea-ice evolution. Here we show that the general equations describing mushy layers reduce to the model of Maykut and Untersteiner (1971) under the same approximations employed therein.last_img
