The Directory of Social Change has published the 10th edition of The Guide to UK Company Giving, containing details of 400 UK companies which donate a total of £658 million.The companies featured make cash or in-kind contributions, or both, to charities and community projects. Each company is listed with details on its:* community involvement programmes* in-kind giving* employee-led support* CSR policies and practicesCompanies’ cash donations are downAlthough the total of £658 million is an increase of 9.9% since the last edition in 2013, the value of total cash donations has dropped considerably, down by 21% to £369 million in the same period.However, DSC points out that calculating total cash donations has become more difficult as new reporting requirements introduced in 2013 mean that companies are no longer required to declare these in their annual report.Top 25 companies dominate cash givingThe top 25 most generous companies contributed 67.6% of cash donations. In 2013 it was almost exactly the same proportion, 68%. Advertisement Corporate grantmakersThe 2015 edition includes for the first time details on corporate charities, where grantmakers are associated with a company. Around £200 million of all the corporate cash donations in the UK featured in the guide were made to these charities.Donations to these charities account for about £200 million of the total cash donations in the UK made by the companies featured in this publication.DSC’s Denise Lillya urged companies to return to declaring their cash donations to charities. She said:“Companies in some numbers are returning to previous unenlightened times by choosing not to declare the one thing they can’t put a spin on, the hard cash they give to community and voluntary organisations. This is a disappointing and backwards step in transparent reporting and seems to have no logical reasoning or justification”. About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Rain Putting a Halt to Planting Throughout Hoosier State

first_img By Eric Pfeiffer – May 3, 2018 Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for May 4, 2018Next articleHow Fast Can We Plant the Indiana Crop? Eric Pfeiffer Rain Putting a Halt to Planting Throughout Hoosier State Rain Putting a Halt to Planting Throughout Hoosier StateHAT Chief Meteorologist Ryan Martin says planting will have to take a bit of a break because of the recent rains that came through, especially in Northern Indiana.“Rainfall totals of an inch to 2 inches were easily seen over the northern third of the state. You get up into Southern Michigan, I’ve got some reports of 3 to 5 inch rainfall totals, so there were some heavy pockets. Now you have to see how long it’s going to take to dry things down.”Martin says we can expect dry air late Friday and through Saturday, but on Sunday, “We have a minor disturbance trying to move through. Not a lot of moisture, a few hundredths of an inch to maybe a quarter of an inch, covering maybe 60 percent of the state.“There’s going to be clouds around. The problem is if you have clouds, if you have moisture, you don’t have good dry down conditions. So, you can’t look at us to dry out on Sunday. That means we extend our drying into Monday, when we should see dry weather. Maybe we can get back into the fields Tuesday into Wednesday.”Martin’s forecast calls for dry weather those days, but then moderate to heavy rains return on Thursday.“A strong front could bring us anywhere from a 0.5-1.5 inches of rain for Thursday and early Friday. Then we play the every other day kind of scenario from there forward. So, rain Thursday, but then again on Saturday, then maybe some on Monday, then we go to Thursday the 17th with moisture. That kind of set up doesn’t allow for very big opportunities to get things dried down, and to get back in the fields.”This week’s planting forecast made possible by First Farmers Bank and Trust, Proudly Serving Local Farmers, and by Kokomo Grain.

US Army releases journalist after four-days of unexplained detention

first_img IraqMiddle East – North Africa News June 30, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 US Army releases journalist after four-days of unexplained detention Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” Organisation Reporters Without Borders welcomed the release on 28 June of freelance journalist Ahmed al-Majun, president of the local branch of the Iraq journalists’ union in Tikrit, north of Baghdad. He had been arrested in the city along with his son on the night of 23-24 June and held at the US base in Speicher, 15 kilometres north of Tikrit. The Journalistic Freedom Observatory in Iraq said that al-Majun had been subjected to interrogations, the content of which he had been forbidden to reveal.The US Army made no comment on the reasons for his detention, nor that of Ahmed Nuri, cameraman for Associated Press, whose release has also been urged by the worldwide press freedom organisation. —————————————————————–25.06.2008US and Iraqi soldiers arrest another journalist in TikritReporters Without Borders condemns the arrest of journalist Ahmed Al-Majoun in a raid by US and Iraqi soldiers on his home in Tikrit (180 km north of Baghdad) early yesterday. His son was also arrested. Majoun heads a journalists union based in Salah El Din, the province of which Tikrit is the capital. No reason has been given for their arrests.“We are disturbed to see that, just a few weeks after the arrest of Associated Press cameraman Ahmed Nouri, the armed forces are still not respecting the work of journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “The arrests of Majoun and his son are unjustified. We call on the US forces to say exactly what they are charged with or else release them.”A joint US-Iraqi military unit arrested Majoun and his son at around 2 a.m. yesterday after forcing their way into his home using stun grenades that damaged the front door and windows. The Journalistic Freedoms Observatory said the soldiers stayed in the house until dawn. It is believed that Majoun and his son are being held at the US military base in Tikrit. The US military has refused to comment on their arrest.Nouri, the AP cameraman, has been held at the same base since 4 June despite a joint appeal for his release by Reporters Without Borders and the Journalistic Freedoms Observatory. He was also arrested at his home by US and Iraqi soldiers.

Motive not yet known in radio journalist’s fatal shooting

first_img Reporters Without Borders hopes that the reason will soon be known for radio journalist Pierre-Richard Alexandre’s fatal shooting by an individual identified as Baudelaire Augustin in Saint-Marc, in the north-central department of Artibonite, on 17 May.A correspondent for the national radio station Radio Kiskeya and the host of a daily political discussion programme on local Radio Delta, Alexandre died of his gunshot injury to the stomach on the night of 19 May after initially appearing to recover in hospital.“Alexandre’s professionalism as a journalist was widely acknowledged and we express our full support for his wife, two children and colleagues,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Following his alleged killer’s arrest, the police should be able to quickly establish whether or not his death was linked to his work as journalist. In either case, journalists’ safety continues to a matter of concern in Haiti, where the political climate is a source of intermittent tension.”Alexandre, 40, was in his Saint-Marc home when the fatal shot appeared to have been fired as a result of a neighbourhood incident. Was he hit by a stray bullet or was he deliberately shot? This is up to the police to determine.Alexandre’s death follows the murder in March of fellow journalist Georges Honorat, a former member of the management of the weekly Haïti Progrès who had of late been working for the press department at the prime minister’s office.Although Haiti is ranked 49th out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index – an improvement on previous years – its journalists still experience recurring security problems.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the truth about the April 2000 murder of Radio Haïti Inter director Jean Dominique, noting that Radio Télé Ginen journalists were attacked in Port-au-Prince on 8 May, the day that a judge questioned former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide about the Dominique murder.

Two Chicago police officers hit, killed by train while chasing suspected gunman: ‘No words to express our grief’

first_imgWLS-TV(CHICAGO) — The Chicago Police Department is mourning two of its officers who were hit and killed by a train while chasing a suspected gunman Monday night, officials said.Eduardo Marmolejo, 37, and Conrad Gary, 31, were chasing the suspect around 6 p.m. when they were hit by a train that may have been traveling 70 mph, Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson told reporters. The officers, both fathers of young children, died at the scene, Johnson said.The two officers were killed “doing the most dangerous thing any police officer can do, and that is to chase an individual with a gun,” Johnson said.A suspect was apprehended and a weapon was recovered, police said.“These brave young men were consumed by identifying a potential threat to their community and put the safety of others above their own,” Johnson said. Gary had been on the force for 18 months, and Marmolejo for 2 1/2 years, Chicago Police Department officials said.“This knocks you back on your heels,” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel told reporters.“There are no words to express our grief, our sense of loss,” Emanuel said. “We as a city have to measure up and remind them, they’re part of our family.”The deaths come just one month after Chicago police officer Samuel Jimenez was fatally shot in the neck while trying to protect employees and patients during a shooting at Chicago’s Mercy Hospital.Other police departments, as well as other Chicago police districts, are offering an outpouring of sympathy for the latest Chicago officers, members of the department’s fifth district, killed in the line of duty.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
