It is running a short online survey.Last year the Institute of Fundraising and other bodies succeeded in persuading the Payments Council to overturn its original recommendation to abolish the cheque in 2018. Many charities still receive substantial income in donations sent in by cheque.Of course, the use of the cheque is in decline. In the UK, 11 million cheques were used each day in 1990 but by 2009 this had dropped to 3.5 million a day. Usage is continuing to drop by 10% per year.The Institute of Fundraising is working with charity payments specialist Rapidata Services plc to explore the issues and challenges still facing charities who rely on donations by cheque. It will report its findings to the Payments Council and relevant Government Departments to ensure that charities’ voices continue to be heard in policy discussions on the issue. The Institute says that responses to the online survey will be kept anonymous.www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22FL3MCRCZA Howard Lake | 3 May 2012 | Newslast_img read more

Black students at Princeton Theological Seminary demand reparation for school’s slavery connections

first_imgBlack students at Princeton Theological Seminary say it’s time for the institution to repent for its reliance on the 19th century slave trade. The Association of Black Seminarians is demanding reparations.At a March 23 town hall meeting in Princeton, N.J., the ABS demanded that at least 15 percent of the school’s $1 billion endowment provide scholarships and grants for Black students. They also seek the expansion of the Black Church Studies program and an endowed department chair.Currently students who identify as African American comprise around 13 percent of the seminary’s 500 students. The 55-member ABS has gathered more than 500 signatures on its petition demanding their proposals be considered by Princeton’s Historical Audit Task Force, which will make formal recommendations to the board of trustees in May.ABS member Jade Lee observed, “Like the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. said, it’s about ‘the fierce urgency of now,’ because waiting means never.” (Philly.com, March 26)In 2016 a committee began to research the seminary’s historic links to slavery. A report, issued in November 2018, found that roughly 15 percent of contributions to the seminary from 1812 to 1861 came from slaveholders. An additional 15 to 25 percent came from benefactors connected to slavery. Some of the seminary’s founders and first professors benefited directly from enslaved labor while speaking out against slavery at the same time. Campus buildings are named after three professors — Archibald Alexander, Samuel Miller and Charles Hodge — who used slave labor. Slaveholder Richard Stockton donated the land for the school’s first buildings.More needed than renaming buildingsPrinceton Theological Seminary is among dozens of colleges and universities investigating historic ties to slavery. Some of the most prestigious schools in the Northeast were funded in large part through 19th century profits from slavery or the direct use of enslaved workers. “Shackled Legacy,” a study on how slavery helped build many U.S. colleges and universities, provides detailed information on many of these schools. (tinyurl.com/shackled-legacy) The following are a few examples.In Massachusetts, the first colony to legalize slavery in 1641, Harvard University exploited the labor of enslaved Africans to serve the sons of wealthy Southern plantation owners on campus. Early benefactors to Harvard, and also to Brown University in Rhode Island, ran slave ships to Africa and milled cotton on Southern plantations.Yale University in Connecticut used a small slave plantation in Rhode Island to fund its first graduate programs and scholarships. Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia experimented on corpses of enslaved Africans in scientific studies. Columbia University in New York promoted slave auctions in lower Manhattan to fund its first trustees.Colleges and universities which have acknowledged historic links to profits from the slave trade include Brown University (2003), the University of Alabama (2004), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (2005), University of Virginia (2007), College of William and Mary (2009), Harvard (2011), Emory University (2011), Princeton (2013) and the University of Pennsylvania (2016). Craig Steven Wilder, author of “Ebony and Ivy: Race, Slavery, and the Troubled History of American Universities,” writes: “The story of the American college is largely the story of the rise of the slave economy in the Atlantic world.” Wilder notes, however, that “to date, there is no single accounting of how much money flowed from the slave economy into the coffers of American higher education.” There has been little restitution beyond apologies, renaming buildings and installing plaques. A study released at Washington and Lee University in 2014 led to militant protests by Black students to remove Confederate battle flags on campus.Now, ABS members at Princeton Seminary made clear that they are not willing to settle for “superficial” initiatives such as changing building names. They insist that any action be substantive, while realizing they probably won’t directly benefit. Seminary student Michael Evans Jr. expressed discomfort with the school’s connection to slavery. “My great-grandmother picked cotton, cleaned other people’s houses, and raised other people’s children. Just like my ancestors did things that would benefit us,” Evans said in the Philly.com article. “This may not help me, but it may help people who come behind me. This is for somebody else.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Freedom of information under constant attack

first_img Reporters Without Borders is dismayed and alarmed by the constant threats to journalists in Libya, who have to work in an increasingly dangerous environment in which carrying a camera, hosting a TV programme or writing an article arouses the suspicions of the various armed groups, and possibly violent reactions.In one the latest incidents, Hassan Al-Bakush, the Benghazi correspondent of the privately-owned satellite TV station Libya Li Kul Al-Ahrar, survived an apparent murder attempt while taking a taxi to work on 5 May.Bakush said the taxi was waiting at a traffic light in the district of Al-Kaysh when a Toyota pickup drew alongside and gunmen opened fire before driving away. By chance, neither Bakush nor the taxi driver was hit.Although Bakush is not sure who was responsible for this act of extreme violence “because of the chaos prevailing in Benghazi,” he linked it to his coverage of an attack on the headquarters of the security services in Benghazi on 2 May, in which eight people were killed and which the government blamed on the Islamist militia Ansar Al-Shari’a.

The identity of those responsible and their motive are still unknown. No injuries were reported.Four days later, Mohamed Aburras, a presenter on state-owned TV station Al-Wataniya, was ambushed as he left the radio station in Tripoli at around 10 pm. Two cars tried to cause an accident by forcing him to drive into traffic coming from the opposition direction. He finally managed to evade his attackers without being injured. This was the third time that Burras has been attacked. In July 2013, he was the target of an apparent murder attempt while at a Tripoli gas station.Issam Al-Oul, the editor of the privately-owned Libyan newspaper Al-Watan, was kidnapped from outside his home in the Tripoli district of Salah Al-Din by an armed group on 26 March and was held for three days, during which he was mistreated and was subjected to torture, including electric shocks and whipping.Al-Oul could not confirm the identity of his abductors but their motives were thought to be linked to statements in his newspaper about certain politicians. After being released, he spent two weeks in a hospital abroad receiving treatment to the injuries sustained during his abduction.Mahmoud Al-Misrati, the editor of the Tripoli-based independent newspaper Libya Al-Jadida, has been the target of threatening messages on social networks for months. His wife and son have also been threatened with abduction. He thinks Islamist groups and members of the Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room are responsible. A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at his home on 15 January but missed.Khadija El-Emaime, the satellite TV station Libya Li Kul Al-Ahrar’s Benghazi bureau chief and a reporter for the very popular news website Libya Al-Mustaqbal, has been the target of attacks by – probably jihadi – armed groups that also keep on sending her threatening messages.She recently received a warning that her “fingers will be cut off” if she does not “immediately stop writing” and covering the actions of the Benghazi militias. She was the target of a shooting attack on a Benghazi street in August 2013 but survived unhurt.Since the start of 2014, Reporters Without Borders has come to the aid of three journalists who were being threatened in connection with their work and had to flee the country. Threats, abductions and various forms of violence continue to take a toll on the existence of those journalists who have decided to keep working regardless of the risks.Reporters Without Borders salutes the courage and determination of the Libyan journalists who fight for the right to information to be recognized and respected in Libya.Despite the Gaddafi dictatorship’s overthrow, the right to “hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers,” enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, continues to be flouted every day in Libya.After the constituent assembly’s inaugural session in the eastern city of Bayda on 21 April and Ahmed Maitig’s appointment as prime minister by the General National Congress (the parliament), Reporters Without Borders urges all the competent authorities to quickly take effective measures to end the dangers for journalists.Reporters Without Borders reiterates the crucial importance of a constitution that provides solid guarantees for the freedoms of expression, opinion and information. At the legislative and judiciary level, laws must be adopted quickly to prevent violations of freedom of information and to end the impunity prevailing in Libya.

Delhi High Court Dismisses Plea Against AAP MLA Imran Hussain Alleging Hoarding Of Oxygen Cylinders

first_imgNews UpdatesDelhi High Court Dismisses Plea Against AAP MLA Imran Hussain Alleging Hoarding Of Oxygen Cylinders Shreya Agarwal13 May 2021 1:16 AMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court today dismissed an application against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Cabinet Minister Imran Hussain which alleged hoarding of oxygen cylinders by Hussain and their distribution for political gain.The amicus curiae assisting the court in the Covid-19 batch of pleas, Sr. Adv. Rajshekhar Rao conducted an enquiry into the incident and has submitted a report to the court stating that he has verified that Hussain procured the oxygen from Faridabad and not from Delhi and that he had taken oxygen cylinders on rent from his personal expenses. The state has also verified and found that the local stores in Delhi have not shared any oxygen with the MLA.Mr. Udit Raj, Special Secretary, Department of Health and Family Welfare, GNCTD, has also filed his response stating that neither GNCTD nor its refillers have given oxygen to Hussain in any form.Earlier, the AAP Cabinet Minister Imran Hussain was directed to file documents in support of his claim, on a plea alleging hoarding and distribution of oxygen cylinders by the leader from his office at Ballimaran in New Delhi.The court had also directed the MLA to file his response on the matter and for him to be personally present during the hearing. While Hussain was present during the hearing today, and represented by his counsel Sr. Adv. Vikas Pahwa, it was pointed out by the court that in his 22-page reply “on oath”, not a single document had been filed in support of his claim that 10 cylinders were rented by him in Delhi and the oxygen was sourced from Faridabad.Adv. Amit Tiwari for the petitioner, Vedansh Anand submitted that while he had no issues to the distribution if the cylinders were not procured from the official government allocation, PWD Bolero Pick Ups were seen unloading oxygen cylinders in front of another AAP MLA’s place as well. He said, “The oxygen is for saving lives, not securing votes.”The plea filed by one Vedansh Anand, pleaded by Adv Amit Tiwari, alleged that it was filed basis a post with pictures posted on the AAP leader’s verified Facebook handle, wherein a long queue of people could be seen waiting in line to receive oxygen cylinders from the leader’s office. In the pictures, a banner can also be seen to have been put up of the AAP leader, and the Facebook post says, “To make oxygen reach those needing it, in Delhi, Cabinet Minister Imran Hussain ‘Free Oxygen Distribution’ from his office”.The court has issued notice on the matter, seeking response from the Minister by tomorrow.The court after hearing the petitioner, observed that after looking at the pictures it didn’t seem that there was hoarding at the office.The plea states that, “Mr. Imran Hussain who is a(n) MLA from Ballimaran and Cabinet Minister in Govt of Delhi is hoarding the oxygen cylinder at the time when the entire Delhi is in the crisis of the supply of the oxygen.”Responding to the plea, Sr. Adv. Rahul Mehra for the Delhi Government suggested that the petitioner was free to file a complaint against the political leader – be he from any party – in order for its veracity to be established.Tags#Delhi High Court #Oxygen Cylinders #Imran Hussain #AAP Next Storylast_img read more

More employers tap into Web-wise graduate pool

first_img Graduate recruitment over the Internet has doubled since last year, according to a report from the Association of Graduate Recruiters.Two-thirds of the employers hoping to lure graduates are using the Internet to do so – twice as many as last year – with half saying they receive better quality applications on-line than in traditional hard copy formats.The report, published yesterday (3 July) as the annual AGR conference kicked off in Warwick, also found that nine out of 10 of this year’s final-year students who are seeking work are using the Internet. Just less than half had applied on-line to more than one company.AGR chief executive Carl Gilleard said, “Today’s graduates are Web-aware and regard the Internet as the obvious place to look for information and services. The report shows that employers need to consider the importance of the Internet as a recruitment tool and the implications of ignoring it when developing their graduate recruitment strategy.”The report, Going to Work on the Web, found that use of the Internet has slashed the time taken from application to acceptance of a formal offer to just a few weeks. It has also opened up access to a global pool of graduates and offered the potential of significant cost savings on traditional recruitment techniques.Report author Allayne Amos said companies using the Net are “making a very public statement about their values, aspirations and working style”.www.agr.org.uk Related posts:No related photos.
