NCVO worried Olympic funding could divert lottery funds from good causes

first_imgNCVO worried Olympic funding could divert lottery funds from good causes The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has called for the protection of lottery funding for good causes from diversion to the British Olympics.“The National Lottery’s existing commitment to the good causes must be honored and new lottery games must not be allowed to undermine income to the existing good causes”, said NCVO Chief Executive,Stuart Etherington.“Whilst the staging of the 2012 Olympic Games in the UK is a very excitingprospect indeed, the Government must state clearly how it will protect the funding of voluntary and community organisations doing vital work throughout the UK if we are to see the diversion of lottery revenue to the Olympics.” Advertisement Howard Lake | 19 May 2003 | News 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.

This is a particular worry at a time when National Lottery ticket sales are already in decline.He added: “This move sets a worrying new precedent for future decisions about the distribution of Lottery funding. We continue to hold by the principle that Lottery funds should be distributed by an independently appointed bodies which have the freedom to take final decisions on both funding priorities and specific projects after consultation.”  13 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Paramilitary threats against journalists in Santander department show predators have not disarmed

first_img Receive email alerts RSF_en RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News News RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Reporters Without Borders is very worried about the media and, in particular, two journalists who have been threatened in Barrancabermeja, in Santander department, a region still exposed to the danger of paramilitaries and currently experiencing a new crime wave. Help by sharing this information News Follow the news on Colombia 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies to go further May 13, 2021 Find out more ColombiaAmericas Reports ColombiaAmericas January 23, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Paramilitary threats against journalists in Santander department show predators have not disarmed April 27, 2021 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders calls for greater vigilance by the authorities after threats and intimidation, apparently by paramilitaries, against journalists in Barrancabermeja, in the northern department of Santander, especially Alvaro Pérez Vides, the head of community TV station Tele Petróleo, and Diro César González, the editor of the regional daily La Tarde. “Those who prey on the press have not disarmed,” the press freedom organisation said. “Despite the demobilisation of the United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC) from June 2003 to June 2006, the paramilitaries continue to pose a grave threat to civil liberties, especially in the provinces.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Pérez has a bodyguard and González is being protected by the interior ministry but this unfortunately does not remove the threat. As ‘demobilised’ paramilitaries infiltrate society, judicial actions pending against them need to be speeded up. Investigative work is also needed involving both the authorities and civil society, including the press.”Pérez was alerted twice by his bodyguard about the presence of paramilitaries around his home and the premises of the Barrancabermeja-based TV station he runs, Tele Petróleo. Two men on a motorcycle and three in pickup took up position outside the entrance to the station on 21 January. Notified by the bodyguard, members of the Department for Security Administration (DAS), an intelligence agency, arrested the three in the pickup (one of whom was a minor) and quickly identified them as demobilised AUC members. In the absence of an arrest warrant, the DAS released them.When the bodyguard came to collect Pérez the next day, he noticed individuals watching the house. Neighbours told Pérez the surveillance had been going on for several days. Their attire (ponchos and long boots of the kind used in marshes) was the same as that worn by the men outside Tele Petróleo. Some paramilitaries are recognisable by this kind of dress.Pérez attributes these threats to the judicial proceedings that were begun after his brother was murdered in 2006. Pérez has often spoken critically on the air this year about the presence of paramilitaries from the Bloque Central Bolívar (one of the AUC’s branches) in some of Barrancabermeja’s neighbourhoods. Paramilitaries have on occasions turned up unannounced at the TV station demanding to take it over. His family has also been threatened.González has also been targeted by paramilitaries and has been getting protection from the interior ministry for more than a year. His wife has nonetheless receiving threatening calls in recent weeks describing his movements. In November, he received a small bottle in the mail apparently containing blood and a death notice naming him as the deceased. Two months before that, a 9 mm bullet was found outside the door of his office.Twenty murders have been committed in Barrancabermeja since the start of the month in a new crime wave. Local human rights groups said: “The situation of the media is becoming increasingly tense because the victims (of violent crime) or those close to them do not want these cases reported at the national level.” Alluding to the paramilitaries, the human rights groups added that “the police and judicial authorities are doing nothing to investigate these people.” October 21, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Labor Expert Highlights the Complexities of Hiring and Firing Employees at the University Club Workshop

Required fields are marked * Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Deborah Petito. Photo credit: John LavittDeborah Petito. Photo credit: John LavittAs a shareholder in the labor & employment and litigation groups at Clark &Trevithick, Deborah Petito is a respected expert when it comes to handling complex labor and employment matters. Given the Byzantine nature of both the California and the federal employment laws and regulations, attorney Petito spends a lot of time helping client companies in and out of court. At the July Business Growth Workshop at the University Club of Pasadena, Deborah Petito highlighted the complexities of hiring, disciplining, and firing employees for a packed house of Southern California business owners.Introduced by James Harwood of Total HR Management, Deborah Petito’s experience was described in detail. As an attorney, she represents public and private sector employment clients in all types of labor and employment matters, including representation in federal and state courts, before state and federal agencies regulating wages and hours of employment, and in arbitration proceedings. Deborah Petito also provides general advice and counsel to employers on employee discipline and termination, wage and hour issues, as well as other employment topics.James Harwood (l) and Deborah Petito (r). Photo credit: John LavittAs Deborah Petito explained in her PowerPoint presentation, such representation and consultation is essential in today’s world because the legal framework has become a labyrinth. If a business owner does not have a gold thread to follow to find the exit, getting lost in the labyrinth of labor laws is just the first of their problems. Like Theseus in the Greek legend, they can suddenly find themselves face to face with the monstrous Minotaur of a financial judgment that can end up severely damaging or even bankrupting their company.When a business owner asked whether it’s okay to simply trust your common sense in these matters, Deborah Petito shook her head and replied, “In California, when it comes to hiring and firing employees, unfortunately you cannot rely on common sense. Without knowing the intricate specifics of the laws and regulations, your company can suddenly find itself in precarious position with no safety net.”In her successful practice Deborah Petito has been able to provide that safety net for California companies facing spurious claims from disgruntled employees trying to steal a quick judgment. In 2014 alone, she successfully represented a technology company, a manufacturing company and a service business in disability discrimination and family medical leave claims. Although the State Bar of California discourages ambulance chasing, business claim chasing in the state seems to be more popular than ever.At just over the halfway point of 2015, the University Club’s Business Growth Workshops continue to be a real asset to the Pasadena community. By providing a monthly venue where Pasadena professionals can learn the intricacies of today’s business challenges, the University Club has demonstrated itself to be a valued staple of the city’s offerings. With the latest presentation on hiring and firing by Deborah Petito, the local business owners learned a lot while also having to sweat the difficulties they now face on a regular basis.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.

Why aren’t Republicans fighting for them or their financial security?”“I will continue to stand up for the hardworking consumers, whom the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau stands up for every day,” Waters continued.In his prepared remarks, Cordray defended the role of the CFPB, especially given the current debate surrounding the Bureau.“Years of uneven federal oversight on behalf of consumers allowed a lot of bad behavior to go unchecked,” Cordray’s remarks state. “As the independent consumer watchdog, we are solely focused on the job Congress gave us of assuring that these markets are fair, transparent, and competitive and consumers have access to sound financial products and services. Today, I want to highlight some areas where people remain vulnerable without the Consumer Bureau to stand up for them.”More on this story as it breaks.

When it comes to non-homeowners interested in buying, only 32 percent of women expressed confidence in the direction of the housing market.While the housing market is currently strong, women surveyed for the ValueInsured report are less confidence that that trend will last. Only 54 percent of women said they were confidence that a home they buy now would be worth more by the end of next year, as compared to 67 percent of male respondents. Similarly, only 52 percent of women surveyed said that now is a good time to purchase a home, whereas men came in at 68 percent.Forty-four percent of men surveyed said they were confident that they would not see another housing crisis within their lifetimes. That’s not a great percentage to begin with, but it’s much worse on the other side of the gender gap, with the percentage of confidence dropping to 28 percent among women.Nor does this pessimism about the state of housing affairs diminish among women who already own homes. ValueInsured reports that 41 percent of women believe the American housing market is currently “unhealthy,” with 20 percent of men believing the same. The numbers are better when it comes to belief that now is a good time to sell a home (72 percent of female homeowners and 84 percent of male homeowners agree), but both surveyed women and men expressed concerns that they would end up “buying high” after a successful sale. Seventy-one percent of female potential sellers and 66 percent of male potential sellers said they were worried about how much they would have to spend to land a new home.Among first-time millennial homebuyers, 38 percent of women believe buying a home today would be a “secure and smart financial decision,” whereas 52 percent of millennial men agree with that statement.

Ramachandra Reddy.Justice DVSS Somayajulu, who held a special sitting on Sunday (7th February) to consider Minister’s plea challenging the order, observed (prima facie) that the State Election Commission does not have the power to direct that the Minister should be confined to his residential premises till 21.02.2021.The court, however, upheld the part of the Commission’s order restraining the Minister from speaking to the press for a period of fifteen days till the election process is completed.The commission had passed these orders after it took note of statements made by Minister in a press conference held on 05.02.2021 which allegedly amounted to veiled threat etc., to the SEC and the officers. The commission directed that the Minister shall be confined to his residential house till the elections are concluded by 21.02.2021. However, he was permitted to attend his constitutional duties and legitimate responsibilities as a Minister, seek medical aid etc. The court noted that the following statement was made by the Minister: “The State Government would make a note of the Officers (Collectors and Returning Officers) and would definitely (khachithanga) take action against them and also blacklist them for the period in which this Government is in power.” The judge observed:”While the present Government is encouraging unanimous elections in the opinion of this court, the statement of the petitioner that action would be taken against the Officer and that they would be blacklisted cannot be said to be an action that can be classified as propagation of Government Policy. If the petitioner had limited himself to the advantages of unanimous elections or the incentives provided the submission of the learned senior counsel can be accepted. However, in the prima facie opinion of this Court, the statement of the petitioner that action will be taken definitely and that the Collectors and Returning Officers would be blacklisted is an interference with the exercise of duties by the Officer during elections.”.Regarding the ‘house arrest’ part, the court observed:As per the settled law, no person can be deprived of the life and liberty except as per the procedure established by law and what is called due process of law. The case law in this regard is too well settled to be repeated. The power to restrain a person’s free moment or a house arrest can only be imposed if it is supported by law. In the opinion of this Court, the power of superintendence and control over the elections and its process cannot extend to passing an order restraining the petitioner from leaving his house. Although, in the later part of the order, some concessions are given, this Court after a prima facie examination of the issue is of the opinion that the State Election Commission does not have the power to direct that the petitioner should be confined to his residential premises till 21.02.2021.The bench upheld the order restraining the Minister from speaking to press, the court said:However, as far as the press statements etc., issued by the petitioner are concerned, this Court holds that the petitioner was not merely advocating or propagating his party’s policies. The language used leaves much to be desired. The Returning Officers and Collectors were told that they would face disciplinary action and would be black listed. In the prima facie opinion of this Court, this would interfere with their free discharge of duties more so, during the election period. It is also settled law that the freedom of speech is not absolute and that a reasonable restriction can be imposed. In the opinion of this Court, if the restriction that was imposed in the peculiar facts and circumstances of the case considering the ground reality is seen, this Court finds that there is a underlying purpose to the restriction imposed which is to prevent statements that will interfere in discharge of the electoral duties by the Officers. The prevailing conditions make it clear that there is no lovelost between the contesting parties and the ground situation is surcharged with the differences and mutual accusations. The evil sought to be remedied and the urgency also points out to the need for imposition of this restriction.Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
