Awards for All still “extraordinarily under-applied for”

first_imgLuke FitzHerbert, Senior Researcher at the Directory of Social Change, reports that, due to a lack of applications, charities stand a very good chance of getting a grant from Awards for All, but only if they act this month.In an article entitled “The Easiest Money Ever?”, Luke reports that “in most if not all English regions there is enough money for all eligible applications to be successful, so the ‘regional priorities’ are no longer being applied”. Indeed, he adds that some regions in the programme have received so few applications that their funding has been transferred to another region.Awards for All is the Lottery grants programme aimed at local communities.Why the lack of interest? It could be because Awards for All’s current maximum grant is for £5,000 in any 12-month period. Still there are plenty of charities for whom that is far from small beer.This maximum will double to £10,000 in April, but Luke advises charities not to wait for that for two reasons. First, just get the money now because you can, and secondly the new system might have change the funding requirements that means your organisation is no longer eligible.Now is the time to start taking advantage of this opportunity. You will need to supply original or certified copies of three months bank accounts, part of an attempt to tackle fraud. But as Luke commnts: “£5,000 is well worth a morning or two’s work for all charities, isn’t it?”  36 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Awards for All still “extraordinarily under-applied for” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

What were you doing on 18 September 2001?

first_img RSF_en Follow the news on Eritrea News Organisation Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? News Eritrea cut itself off from the world five years ago today. While the world’s attention was still totally absorbed by the 9/11 attacks in New York and Washington of the previous week, President Issaias Afeworki shut down Eritrea’s privately-owned press on 18 September 2001. The round-ups began five days later. Hundreds of government opponents are still in prison. At least 13 journalists are still being held somewhere in the country’s detention centres. Reporters Without Borders calls on African newspapers to publish articles this week about what is one of Africa’s biggest political tragedies of the last 50 years.What were you doing on 18 September 2001?On that day you were probably still reeling from the horrific scenes of passenger jets being flown into the World Trade Centre in New York and the Pentagon in Washington. You were still discussing it with your family, friends and colleagues. And you had no idea that one of Africa’s biggest political dramas of the past half-century was unfolding in the continent’s northeastern corner, in a small country beside the Red Sea.On 18 September 2001, Eritrean President Issaias Afeworki ordered the closure of all of the privately-owned press, silencing all of the country’s independent publications in one fell swoop. Asmara, a city until then praised in songs for its dolce vita, was stunned. The raids began five days later, on 23 September. Within hours, the capital was turned into a hunting ground for the political police. Some of the country’s most brilliant journalists hid in cellars. Government opponents and presidential rivals were thrown into police trucks and locked up in the city’s police stations. Some had the courage and energy to flee on foot and eventually reached refugee camps in Sudan. Others, such as poet and playwright Fessehaye Yohannes, got tired of living like hunted animals and wanted to show their solidarity with their independent journalist colleagues, so they turned themselves in to the police. A former newspaper editor who is now a political refugee in Sweden says: “It was the end of all our hopes.”18-23 September 2001 – a black week in the history of press freedom in AfricaWhat happened to push Eritrea over the edge after a decade of independence? The president promised elections, but none were held. The president promised civil and political liberties, but the police targeted anyone on the least pretext. With the second war with Ethiopia barely over, the independent press relayed the calls for democratisation being made by 15 senior ruling party officials, known as the Group of 15. But all that came to a sudden end five years ago, on 18 September 2001.Since that date, nothing has happened in Eritrea without President Afeworki knowing about it. There are no longer any independent publications. For news, the population has to rely on Soviet-style government media and a few foreign radio stations whose signals can be received in Asmara.Along with the hundreds of government opponents, 13 journalists are languishing somewhere in the country’s prisons and detention centres. Their names are Dawit Isaac, Fessehaye Yohannes, Yusuf Mohamed Ali, Mattewos Habteab, Dawit Habtemichael, Medhanie Haile, Temesgen Gebreyesus, Emanuel Asrat, Said Abdulkader, Seyoum Tsehaye, Hamid Mohamed Said, Saidia Ahmed and Saleh Al Jezaeeri. The few Eritreans who have managed to flee the country after being released from detention say conditions are terrible. Prisoners are locked up in metal containers inside military camps. Some are tortured. Mercury is poured in their ears. None of them has been tried, or has seen a lawyer or has been allowed family visits. We do not even know if they are still alive. Each year, the government repeats that they are “traitors to the motherland” or “spies for Ethiopia.” Since 2001, parliamentarians have supposedly been preparing a report on their “crimes.”The Eritrean government no longer listens to anyone. Nobody has been able to make it see reason. Only international public opinion has enough influence to achieve this.Reporters Without Borders RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision EritreaAfrica April 14, 2021 Find out more January 13, 2021 Find out more to go further EritreaAfrica News Receive email alerts Eritrea cut itself off from the world five years ago today.

Local and remote influences on the heat content ofSouthern Ocean mode water formation regions

first_imgThe Southern Ocean (SO) is a crucial region for the global ocean uptake of heat and carbon. There are large uncertainties in the observations of fluxes of heat and carbon between the atmosphere and the ocean mixed layer, which lead to large uncertainties in the amount entering into the global overturning circulation. In order to better understand where and when fluxes of heat and momentum have the largest impact on near‐surface heat content, we use an adjoint model to calculate the linear sensitivities of heat content in SO mode water formation regions to surface fluxes. We find that the heat content of these regions is, in all three basins, most sensitive to same‐winter, local heat fluxes, and to local and remote wind one to eight years (the maximum lead‐time of our simulations) previously. This is supported by sensitivities to potential temperature changes, which reveal the sources of the mode water formation regions as well as dynamic links with boundary current regions and the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. We use the adjoint sensitivity fields to design a set of targeted perturbation experiments, allowing us to examine the linear and non‐linear responses of the heat content to changes in surface forcing. In these targeted experiments, the heat content is sensitive to both temperature changes and mixed layer volume changes in roughly equal magnitude.last_img read more

Somerville urges employee to turn himself in over stabbing murder

first_imgSomerville College have urged their employee accused of stabbing to death a hairstylist in Chicago to turn himself in to US authorities as police in Chicago said they were “closing in” on him and a US academic.Police in the city said they “have an idea” of the whereabouts of Andrew Warren, a senior treasurer assistant at Oxford’s Somerville College and Wyndham Lathem, a professor at Northwestern University. The pair are accused of stabbing to death a 26-year-old-man, Trenton Cornell-Duranleau, in Lathem’s Chicago apartment.Oxford University said it would help police with their investigation as Somerville College urged Warren to turn himself in.“Andrew Warren’s colleagues at Somerville College have now all been informed and are shocked to learn of the case,” a college spokesperson said.“Whatever the circumstances, we would urge him to contact the US authorities as soon as possible, in the best interests of everyone concerned.”Officers in Chicago said their hunt for the Warren, 56, and Lathem, 42, a microbiology professor, was “intensifying”.“We do have an idea of their whereabouts and efforts to locate them are only intensifying from here on in,” a spokesperson said.“Our primary focus is to facilitate a safe surrender and we strongly encourage Professor Lathem and Mr Warren to do the right thing.”Officers found the victim with multiple stab wounds in Lathem’s 10th floor apartment on 27 July. The attack was so violent that the blade of the knife believed to have been used to stab Cornell-Duranleau had broken, Chicago police said.US police warned members of the public that the because of the violent nature of their alleged crime, the pair were believed to be “armed and dangerous”.Warren, 56, oversaw pensions and payrolls at Somerville. According to police and media reports, he is believed to have flown to the US days before the murder took place, after allegedly meeting Lathem online.Court files give Warren’s address as Somerville but his Facebook profile says he lives in Swindon, Wiltshire and is a former cashier and Stagecoach bus driver.In an email sent to Somerville staff and students on Tuesday morning, the college Principal, Alice Prochaska said: “Neither the College nor the university were aware of the case, which is clearly extremely worrying. We and the university authorities will liaise with the investigating authorities and provide any assistance that is required.“This comes as upsetting news to all of us. Counselling support can be made available to anyone who needs it.”In a statement on Thursday, Oxford University said it had been in contact with police in the UK about Warren and was “ready to help the US investigating authorities in any way they need”.His alleged accomplice, Wyndham Lathem, had worked as a scientist at Northwestern University since 2007, specialising in the bubonic plague.Northwestern said Lathem had been placed on leave and was banned from entering the campus.last_img read more
