  • Pennies raises £1m for GOSH Charity

    first_img“We’re immensely proud of our partnership with Pennies and would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Pennies and each and every customer who has helped contribute towards this incredible milestone. Pennies really do add up and this fantastic £1million donation will make a huge difference to the seriously ill children who are treated at Great Ormond Street Hospital.” Melanie May | 20 December 2018 | News Digital charity box Pennies has now raised £1million for Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.The money has been raised through donations that customers have made to the charity when shopping at a branch of The Entertainer, online at Hawkin’s Bazaar or eating at an ASK Italian restaurant across the UK. Pennies lets customers top-up or round-up their purchases to the nearest pound to donate a few pennies to GOSH Charity.Whitbread will become the latest business to use Pennies to fundraise for GOSH Charity when it rolls out the digital charity box across all of its restaurant brands in early 2019. CEO of Pennies, Alison Hutchinson CBE said: “We’re delighted that Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity are one of the first charities to receive £1million through Pennies. This remarkable milestone was made possible thanks to the retailers who have partnered with Pennies to support GOSH Charity, and of course to the customers across the country who’ve generously donated their digital small change in their millions since 2011. It’s a pleasure to support the GOSH’s wonderful work, and we look forward to helping raise many more vital funds through the digital charity box in the years to come.”The money will go towards the hospital’s most urgent needs from pioneering research, medical equipment and the rebuilding and refurbishing of the hospital to support services for families and patients including parent accommodation. Amit Aggarwal, Director of Corporate Partnerships at Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity said: Advertisement Tagged with: microdonations Pennies raises £1m for GOSH Charity  215 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13  216 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis13 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.

  • Former President Manuel Zelaya calls Honduras ‘ruled by USA’

    first_imgThis interview by Carlo Pereira of the German weekly Unsere Zeit (Our Time) was made during the International Seminar in Mexico City on March 12 and published in UZ on March 20. Translation and photo by John Catalinotto.Carlo Pereira: The 2009 coup in Honduras made big headlines around the world. How do you assess its consequences now after more than five years?Honduran President Mel Zelaya defends Venezuela.WW photo: John CatalinottoPresident Mel Zelaya: All indicators show that the situation in Honduras is deteriorating day by day. That means the social, economic, political and security conditions. Since the coup, poverty, debt, corruption and crime have all increased. The people demand real democracy and peace, but this is the last thing those who took power with the coup want to give the people.CP: How do you see the role of the U.S., the European Union and the individual European states in the preparation of the coup and after it took place?MZ: Following the coup, the U.S. virtually took over the leadership of the country. It runs the country; the [Honduran] president only manages things and follows the instructions of the U.S. State Department and the Southern Command. The European Union is no longer a defender of human rights. It represents the interests of entrepreneurs and banks; it promotes the free trade agreement. In this sense, the EU has lost much of its standing as role model for a Central American economic alliance that it once had with regard to democracy and human rights.CP: Do you see a parallel between the coup in Honduras and the current U.S. aggression against Venezuela?MZ: What these actions show about the U.S. is that it is an intolerant, anti-democratic empire, focused on interventions. The U.S. has no respect for our independence and sovereignty, no respect for the nation-state. The U.S. must correct its policy. In the Middle East, the U.S. has split up the peoples and set them against each other in civil war. Latin America calls out with one voice in defense of the sovereignty of all Latin American nations. The U.S. must stop looking at Latin America as its backyard and begin to respect the social processes that go on in Latin America.CP: How do you assess the situation and prospects of the progressive forces in Honduras?MZ: Throughout Latin America, there is a great effort being made. The historical reality moves with ups and downs and is sometimes cumbersome. Absolutely no one will be able to constantly keep humanity from fighting for equality, freedom and solidarity. No one can prevent the people from doing this. The movement can be delayed, but it is a mistake for the U.S. to try to stop the process of democratic socialism in Latin America.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

  • USDA Announces Agreement with South Korea to Help Protect U.S. Trade…

    first_img SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Mar 16, 2018 Home Indiana Agriculture News USDA Announces Agreement with South Korea to Help Protect U.S. Trade During… Previous articleHouse Lawmakers Introduce Bipartisan STRESS Act to Help FarmersNext articleHouse Farm Bill Markup Delayed Hoosier Ag Today Facebook Twitter USDA Announces Agreement with South Korea to Help Protect U.S. Trade During HPAI Detections Facebook Twitter The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced an agreement with the government of South Korea that significantly reduces negative impacts on trade should another detection of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) occur in the United States. The agreement will allow for trade restrictions at the state level instead of the country level during any future HPAI detections.This action bolsters the already strong trade relationship between the United States and South Korea and will prevent a repeat of trade actions taken in 2015 when all U.S. poultry, poultry products and eggs were banned as a result of a detection of HPAI.“Limiting trade restrictions during future HPAI detections to only those states with positive detections will help keep trade flowing,” said Greg Ibach, USDA Under Secretary for Marketing and Regulatory Programs. “The new science-based agreement will allow unaffected U.S. producers to keep poultry, poultry products and eggs going to South Korea. This helps us meet Secretary Perdue’s vision of doing right and feeding the world.”“Trade is critical for the health of American agriculture, and to support vibrant rural economies. Keeping markets open to exports of U.S. poultry is an important part of that story,” said USDA Under Secretary for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney. “This success with South Korea, a top ten market already for poultry products, means we will continue to grow exports to a critical market.”USDA plays a vital role in ensuring the free flow of agricultural trade by certifying that the millions of U.S. agricultural and food products shipped to markets abroad meet the importing countries’ entry requirements. USDA also keeps export markets open for American agricultural products by addressing concerns about plant and animal health raised by U.S. trading partners. Under the new agreement, if there is an HPAI detection in the United States, unaffected states would continue to trade with South Korea. SHARElast_img read more

The Bench of Chief Justice Sanjib Banerjee and Justice R. Hemalatha further observed, “It is completely beyond the ordinary powers of a Court, even a constitutional Court, to direct the administration to install any particular Statue at any particular place.” Significantly, the Court also remarked, “It would be appreciated if the Court’s time is not wasted like this and the Court is allowed to take up the other pressing matters instead.” In another order, wherein a plea sought directions to the respondents to restore passenger rolling gates on the north-eastern and north-western side of an obstructing wall at the Karaikudi bus stand, the Madras HC issued some pertinent observations. The Court said that it can hardly be expected of the High Court, no less, to look into the matters pertaining to ingress and egress at every bus stand all over the State. Significantly, the Court further observed, “The present trend, whether it is borne out of political ambitions or professional reasons, to approach the High Court with a complaint of an encroachment in tiniest part of a remote village or to deal with the access to a bus terminus or to consider the bus timings at a particular stop adds to the pendency of matters and impede the Court’s function.” As a consequence, the Court noted, matters of the larger public interest that require the Court’s attention may get neglected. Notably, the Court also said, “It is unfortunate that a degree of restraint that ought to be exercised at the Bar and the filter that ought to be carried out by the Bar may have been lost or surrendered its efficacy.” With this, both the petitions were dismissed.Click Here To Download OrdersRead OrdersSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
