Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of Researching massive growth in giving. The 2012 British 10km London Run, which will take place on 8 July next year, has already attracted nearly 15,000 runners who will benefit 612 charities who have secured places under the race’s debenture system.Event founder and director Michael O’Reilly said that this was “a record entry for this time of the year”.He pointed to the relatively low charge to charities compared to other major running events. The race entry fee for the years 2012-2014 costs £212.10p per debenture, and each one guarantees the holder six places each year, with charities only paying one year at a time.As part of the cost of the debenture, each charity runner will receive chip timing, an official race photograph, a text message confirming place and time results.The event, now in its 12th year, will enable runners to run through central London on roads closed to traffic just 19 days before the opening ceremony of the London Olympic Games. The event has places for 25,000 runners, and its organisers say it has sold out every year since AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

  • International Spring Banquet looks to highlight talent, culture

She said it’s a “taste of genres” in the Latin community.She also talked about how different TCU’s mostly Caucasian campus was for her when she was a first-year student, since she came from a Hispanic-based Fort Worth community.That fall, Hispanic students made up 10.1 percent of TCU’s students. That number has risen slightly to 11 percent this year.However, Miramontes said she’s glad to represent her Mexican heritage at school.“It’s cool to be a little bit different and to represent that,” Miramontes said.ISA has hosted the banquet for 60 years, said Van Do, president of ISA. She expects this year’s performances to be more professional and more diverse than previous years.She said 15 countries will be represented in the talent and fashion show. This will include Vietnam, China, Mexico, Ghana and the U.S.A new feature in the talent show is its travel theme.The banquet is played out like a flight, Do said. Two mock flight attendants will take the audience on a trip around the world with talent performances representing stops on the way to the fashion show.“Every year you have another surprise,” Do said. “We don’t know what’s ahead of us, and that’s interesting.”Do said anyone interested in international culture should come to the banquet. It’s open to everyone.“It’s an opportunity to meet people from around the world,” Do also said.Patty Do, ISA student advisor, said she wants international and American students to get to know each other and learn something new.The last round of talent show auditions are Sunday from  2 to 6 p.m. in Scharbauer Hall, Room 1011.The International Spring Banquet will be held at the University Baptist Church on Feb. 19 from 6 to 9 p.m.center_img Twitter The Leap: 10 April Fool’s pranks to try this year Fashion show performers pose at last year’s International Spring Banquet.

  • Press freedom situation continues to deteriorate in Hamastan

    first_img May 28, 2021 Find out more PalestineMiddle East – North Africa The situation of the media has got much worse in the Gaza Strip since Hamas took over on 14 June and its paramilitary Executive Force does not hesitate to use violence against journalists. Hamas’ announcement that it intends to apply a repressive media law adopted by Yasser Arafat in 1995 does not bode well Organisation RSF_en PalestineMiddle East – North Africa News Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists August 28, 2007 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Press freedom situation continues to deteriorate in Hamastan Follow the news on Palestine Receive email alerts Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the constant harassment of Palestinian journalists in the Gaza Strip by the Hamas paramilitary Executive Force. The press freedom organisation is also concerned about the Islamist party’s intention to enforce a press law dating back to 1995 that will enable it to control the media even more closely.“The situation of journalists in the Gaza Strip has got much worse since the Hamas takeover,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The party’s leaders went out of their way in July to get British journalist Alan Johnston released but, for local journalists, the members of the Executive Force are press freedom enemies and do not hesitate to use violence.”The organisation added: “We are all the more concerned that Hamas has decided to reinforce its control over the media by applying a law adopted by Yasser Arafat in 1995, which led to the Palestinian Authority seizing and suspending newspapers and arresting journalists in order to bring them into line. We would not want to see this recur in the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip.”Six journalists were arrested when Hamas’ armed wing intervened to disperse a pro-Fatah demonstration in Gaza City on 24 August. Cameraman Jamal Abou Nahl of Al-Arabiya TV, Agence France-Presse photographers Mohammed Abed and Mohammed Al-Bada, cameraman Khaled Balbel of the agency Zoom, cameraman Mostapha Al-Bayed of the satellite TV station Russia Today and Mohammed Dahmane of the news agency Mayadine were all held for several hours at the Saraya, the Hamas headquarters in Gaza City. Equipment was seized and their video and audio tapes were destroyed.“Members of the Executive Force wanted to force us to publicly say on Al-Aqsa TV (the Hamas television station) that no journalist was mistreated during the demonstration, but we refused,” Balbel told Reporters Without Borders. The six men were released after dozens of journalists gathered outside in protest against their arrests.On the evening of 25 August, around 15 armed members of the Executive Force tried in vain to arrest Shaker Abou el-Oun, an Agence France-Presse correspondent who is also president of the Gaza branch of the Union of Palestinian Journalists. Alerted by phone, colleagues came and formed a human chain at the entrance to his home to prevent the gunmen from entering. They left only after a Hamas leader intervened and said it was a “misunderstanding.” The day before, El-Oun had been very critical of Hamas’ harassment of the media.It was yesterday that Hamas leaders announced their intention of applying the 1995 press law, under which journalists can go to prison for six months and newspapers can be closed if they publish reports liable to “jeopardize national unity or incite crime, hatred, division or sectarian dissension.” Journalists can also be prosecuted for negative reports about “the police and security forces and their weaponry.” News May 16, 2021 Find out more June 3, 2021 Find out more to go further News Help by sharing this information News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimeslast_img read more
