Through raising the profile of arts legacy giving we want to encourage supporters to make a bequest to help ensure their cherished companies can continue to give pleasure and inspiration for the generations that follow”. Advertisement Across Scotland 24 law offices are involved in the scheme. Austin Lafferty, President of the Law Society of Scotland, which is supporting the initiative, said “This fantastic scheme means, that for a modest legacy, a free will can be drawn up by regulated professionals, benefitting the individual, their family and Scotland’s vibrant arts community”.Author Alexander McCall Smith is supporting the scheme and said: “Everyone should have a will. That’s how you provide for family and friends. Why not use your will to help the vibrant cultural life that makes Scotland such a fine place to live? A legacy to the arts is a small gesture that makes a very big difference.”www.aandbscotland.org.uk/legaciescenter_img Howard Lake | 1 February 2013 | News Legacy promotion campaign launched for Scottish arts charities About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The funds raised will help build a new  children’s hospice for Wiltshire.[youtube height=”450″ width=”800″]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeJpLwp4swg[/youtube]The raffle went live on 2 March and runs for two more weeks.The charity’s Chief Executive Martin Edwards reports that total income so far is already well into six figures, with interest still high.The campaign is clearly doing well: the $50,000 option to visit the set of Marvel’s latest Captain America set and to meet Mr Downey has already sold out, and there is only one opportunity left at the same sum to enter and receive a private advance screening of the Avengers: Age of Ultron film in Los Angeles.What is Omaze?Omaze offers ‘celebrity experiences’ where people pay $10 for a chance to win the prize. The raffles are promoted internationally.Mr Downey has also promoted the opportunity to his millions of Facebook followers, and his video features the ‘Iron Man’ actor explaining just what the winner will get to experience.RDJ, as he styles himself, offers:“Indoor sky diving, breakfast at Randy’s Donuts, a helicopter around LA, and that’s just the beginning. Got your attention? Great. I’ll be flying you and a friend out to LA to spend a day like Tony Stark before my motorcade picks you up en route to the World Premiere of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron”. Advertisementcenter_img Maze has previously featured fundraising ’experiences’ with George Clooney, Matt Damon & Ben Affleck, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.How did RDJ get involved?Martin Edwards explained that the contact with Robert Downey Jr was made via film director Guy Ritchie, the charity’s patron. He directed Downey in two Sherlock Holmes films. Downey became interested in Julia’s House after attending a fundraising event at Ritchie’s home in the UK last year which raised £1 million for the charity.The winner will get to meet Mr Downey, have dinner, get dressed with new evening wear, and join him on the red carpet for the film premiere.Edwards added that as a result of the widespread coverage, children’s palliative care and bereavement charities in the USA have contacted Julia’s House asking for advice and guidance on establishing services, as US provision for children with life-limiting illnesses lags behind the well-established children’s hospice movement in the UK.

Trabajadoras/es de Verizon combaten

first_imgPor 10 meses estuvieron intentando fuertemente lograr un contrato justo, y ya estaban  hartas/os. Por eso el 13 de abril, cerca de 40.000 trabajadoras/es de Verizon se declararon en huelga en Washington-D.C., y en nueve estados de la costa este, desde Massachusetts hasta Virginia. Es el mayor paro en los EUA desde la huelga de dos semanas contra Verizon en el año 2011.Los sindicatos Trabajadores de la Comunicación (CWA por las siglas en inglés) y Trabajadores Electricistas Internacionales (IBEW), que representan a las/os trabajadores en las operaciones de telefonía fija y banda ancha de FiOS de Verizon, convocaron la huelga. La AFL-CIO la ha apoyado y sus miembros, líderes comunitarias/os y otras fuerzas se están uniendo a los mítines y piquetes y han enviado mensajes de solidaridad. Jóvenes partidarias/os del candidato presidencial Bernie Sanders están apoyando la huelga.La huelga puede encender una lucha aún más amplia en un momento en que muchos sectores de la clase trabajadora multinacional están en movimiento, especialmente las/os trabajadores con salarios bajos y oprimidas/os como las/os que son parte de la campaña “Lucha por $15”,  en los centros laborales, las/os trabajadoras de restaurantes de comida rápida y de las megatiendas.Hay mucho en juego para las/os trabajadores. Al centro está la seguridad laboral: preservar buenos trabajos sindicalizados con salarios dignos y beneficios decentes, logrados por las/os trabajadores organizados a través de luchas reñidas. En la última década, Verizon ha reducido su fuerza laboral en un 40 por ciento. Las/os trabajadores contratados después del año 2003 no tienen seguridad de empleo y ahora la empresa tiene como objetivo eliminar la cláusula de “no despido” para las/os trabajadores contratados antes de esa fecha.Verizon tiene como objetivo romper el contrato sindical y forzar concesiones desastrosas de las/os trabajadores que reducirían su nivel de vida. A pesar de las ganancias récord de $39 mil millones en los últimos tres años, los ejecutivos buscan reducir sus costos laborales pasando más costos de los beneficios de salud a las/os trabajadores y jubilados, reduciendo los beneficios por discapacidad y congelando las pensiones. Los ejecutivos no quieren discutir mejoras de salarios y condiciones de trabajo. En su lugar, disminuirían las protecciones por tiempo extra y harían que las/os trabajadores trabajen siete días consecutivos.La compañía tiene previsto subcontratar servicios de contratistas no sindicalizados que trabajan por salarios bajos. Después de haber enviado 5.000 puestos de trabajo de servicio al consumidor al exterior, Verizon intenta continuar exportando más puestos, explotando así a la fuerza laboral mundial pagándoles salarios extremadamente bajos. ¡CWA, IBEW dicen no a la transferencia de empleos!Verizon planea cerrar y consolidar los centros de llamadas, obligando a las/os trabajadores a viajar largas distancias diariamente o perder el trabajo. Violando una parte importante del contrato, la empresa quiere trasladar a las/os trabajadores a una distancia de hasta 80 millas lejos de sus lugares actuales cada dos meses, sin previo aviso o derecho a rechazar, sin tener en cuenta la antigüedad o los lazos familiares.La meta de Verizon es establecer una fuerza laboral de técnicos móviles que se puedan enviar en cualquier momento, a cualquier lugar, para construir redes de FiOS y luego pasar al siguiente lugar de trabajo. Esta es una cuestión clave para las/os trabajadores; sus sindicatos repudian fuertemente las transferencias de empleo. Además, la dispersión de las/os trabajadores disminuye su fuerza colectiva.Las/os trabajadores de Verizon están molestos de que la empresa se ha estancado en su promesa de construir la red FiOS, mientras descartan a las/os trabajadores que la instalan. La corporación ha violado acuerdos con franquicias de instaladores de cables para instalar la red FiOS por toda la ciudad de Nueva York y Filadelfia. Esto ha dejado a millones de personas sin acceso, especialmente en las comunidades de bajos ingresos, afroamericanas e inmigrantes. Ha desatendido las instalaciones de FiOS en varios estados, mientras obstruye las reparaciones de la antigua red de cobre, dejando a muchas/os clientes con un servicio pobre.La CWA dice que la empresa se niega a negociar un primer contrato justo con mejores salarios y beneficios para las/os trabajadores del comercio minorista de Verizon Wireless – a pesar de que formaron un sindicato en 2014. Estas/os empleados traen grandes ganancias, dice Verizon – pero están entre las/os trabajadores peor pagados de la compañía.Es lucha de clasesEn el segundo día de la huelga, la CWA informó que en dos incidentes separados, tres trabajadores de la Seccional 2108 que piqueteaban en Maryland, fueron golpeados por coches conducidos por un abogado de Verizon y un administrador de la empresa.Verizon ha amenazado con transferir técnicos de Massachusetts a Virginia durante 60 días si el contrato no está ratificado para el 20 de mayo. Además, la compañía está siendo tan intransigente que los ejecutivos han ignorado la oferta de los sindicatos de dar $200 millones en concesiones.Las/os organizadores de la CWA y del IBEW se reunieron con representantes de Verizon el 15 de abril para discutir el contrato que cubre a las/os trabajadores en seis estados y en Washington-DC. Mostrando su desprecio por las/os trabajadores, los ejecutivos se negaron a negociar, exigieron incluso más concesiones de las/os trabajadores y se retiraron después de 30 minutos.El gobierno federal está tratando de intervenir antes de que el paro crezca y se amplíe la solidaridad. Sin embargo, la mediación después de la huelga del 2011 dio lugar a un contrato insatisfactorio para muchas/os trabajadores. Verizon quiere esa intervención nuevamente, pero los sindicatos la han repudiado, diciendo que la mediación “es una distracción del problema real: la avaricia corporativa de Verizon. Los equipos de negociación de CWA y IBEW están preparados, capaces y dispuestos a negociar. ¿Dónde está Verizon”? (CWA, 12 de abril)Labor de las/os trabajadores: fuente de riqueza de VerizonEn su afán por aún mayores ganancias, Verizon está exprimiendo la misma mano de obra cuyo trabajo ha creado la riqueza de la corporación y ha permitido a sus cinco altos ejecutivos recibir una “compensación” de $233 millones durante los últimos cinco años. La mano de obra de las/os trabajadores ha creado, producido y actualizado toda la tecnología de Verizon.La crisis económica capitalista continúa. La amarga competencia por ganancias entre las empresas en el país y en el exterior se está intensificando. En este feroz escenario mundial, el esquema de los patronos es hacer todo lo posible para reducir los costos de la mano de obra. La clase dominante está en una guerra contra los sindicatos, con el objetivo de tener mano de obra no sindicalizada, con salarios bajos y sin beneficios médicos o de jubilación subvencionados por la compañía. Esta “carrera hacia el fondo” es una amenaza para toda la clase trabajadora.Las/os huelguistas de Verizon están luchando por sus puestos de trabajo – y al final, por los derechos de todas/os los trabajadores para que tengan buenos empleos con salarios dignos, beneficios y un sindicato. Es hora de que todos los sindicatos y otras organizaciones progresistas se unan a sus líneas de piquete y muestren solidaridad.

Colorado rally urges ‘zero tolerance’ for family separation

first_imgHundreds turn out to protest ICE separating parents from children.Aurora, Colo. — Nearly 500 people gathered in front of the GEO-ICE Detention Center here on June 14 to protest the recent U.S. policy of arresting parents who cross the U.S. border.U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement takes their children away from them, often tearing them away while both parents and children scream in terror. The children, including babies and toddlers, were being placed in foster homes but, since the government declared a policy of “zero tolerance,” the number of children separated from their parents has risen into the thousands. Some have now been placed in a refurbished Walmart Supercenter in Texas, and there are even plans to send some to live in tents on military bases.While the U.S. government and Justice Department have threatened to fill 50,000 private prison beds per year with the parents in places like GEO Corp., their children are being shipped far away. The parents have no idea where their children are being sent to and most have no contact after they have been removed.Often, the government loses track of them. When the mothers and fathers are then deported, they have no idea where their children are, nor do they have a way to reunite with them. All this has been reported in the mainstream press for weeks.This increasing policy of “zero tolerance” for people who cross the U.S. border no longer makes an exception for those who walk up to the border and openly ask for asylum. This includes women fearing reprisal for fleeing severe domestic abuse. In all cases, the parents are arrested and their children literally torn from their arms.Stories abound of screaming children, mothers and fathers, and of at least one father’s suicide after his children were brutally taken from him. To avoid these scenes, ICE agents lie to the parents, saying they are taking children for a shower — from which they do not return. This has spurred the protest slogans “Keep families together” and “Zero tolerance for family separation.”The demonstration here in Aurora drew people angry over this inhumane and hateful policy, including Jews who likened it to what the Nazis had done to dehumanize and destroy families during the Holocaust.Indivisible Colorado organized the demonstration. It is an umbrella organization of many progressive groups throughout the state. The speakers included Dreamers, the undocumented and organizers among the immigrant community.Mother of three tells her storyGuadalupe (her last name withheld deliberately) spoke of being from a Guatemalan family but born in Mexico and then brought to the U.S. as a little child more than 20 years ago. Her mother died and she quit high school to work and raise her brothers and sisters.Guadalupe seemed to be in her thirties, but as her eyes welled up with tears talking about her mother’s death, her face looked worn and aged.  After marrying, she had three young children. Then, her husband and she were stopped by police. They spent days in jail while the children were not notified and had no idea where their parents were. Since then, they have incurred great expense obtaining legal help, which has caused terrible hardship in addition to their living in constant fear.Despite all this, Guadalupe had a warm smile and expressed deep love for the people who came out to support her and others like her who resist the taking of children to terrorize immigrants at the border.  She is active in two organizations that give help to the undocumented and families going through the same hardships.Her two younger children sat lovingly looking up at their mother as she softly told her story in Spanish, a friend translating. Thankfully, they were still together. When she stepped down from the truck bed after speaking, she was surprisingly thin and barely five feet tall. She and her children ran back into the crowd.Organizers spoke of four women in sanctuary here in Colorado who have been in contact with each other for over five months and have written a document called the People’s Resolution.  They have communicated with each other over Skype and consulted with lawyers, immigrant and faith communities. The People’s Resolution proposes direct steps that elected officials can take to create a path to status. Organizers urged the crowd to press for adoption of this plan in Colorado. (peoplesresolution.org)They urged everyone to call elected officials, especially Republican Sen. Cory Gardner, to sign on to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bill to stop taking children from their parents at the U.S. border. They urged letter writing to the newspapers and doing everything to protect families from this cruel policy of being separated at the border.The gathering ended so people could meet at Montview Presbyterian Church, where a candlelight march was to start at 6:30 p.m., and then walk to Temple Micah, a local synagogue that welcomes people of any sexual orientation. Other gatherings to protest ICE and organize to stop the U.S. government from taking immigrant children were taking place the same evening in Pueblo, Colo. An announcement asked people to protest at the home of Sen. Gardner the next day, hundreds of miles away in western Colorado.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NPPC Elects New President, Officers, Set Resolutions for 2019

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News NPPC Elects New President, Officers, Set Resolutions for 2019 NPPC Elects New President, Officers, Set Resolutions for 2019 Facebook Twitter Previous articleARC and PLC Decision Could Impact Your Crop Insurance Decision on the HAT Friday Morning EditionNext articleNAFTA Withdrawal Coming to Pressure Congress on USMCA? NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE By NAFB News Service – Mar 10, 2019 The National Pork Producers Council elected a new president at its annual business meeting. The National Pork Industry Forum took place last week in Orlando, Florida. Porkbusiness.com says David Herring, a hog farmer from North Carolina, is the new president. Herring is Vice President of Hog Slat, which supplies equipment to pork operations, as well as the VP of TDM Farms. He and his two brothers started the farm as a feeder pig operation in 1983. It’s now a sow farrow-to-finish operation, with farms in North Carolina, Illinois, and Indiana. Herring takes over for Jim Heimerl, an Ohio pork producer who now becomes the immediate past president and chair of the NPPC Trade Committee.Howard A.V. Roth, a Wisconsin hog farmer, was elevated to the president-elect position with the organization. The fifth-generation farmer owns and operates Roth Feeder Pigs. Jen Sorenson, Iowa Select Farms communications director, was elected vice president by the NPPC Board of Directors. “David, A.V., and Jen all have a lot of good experience and leadership that will benefit NPPC and our producers greatly,” says NPPC CEO Neil Dirks. “With the additions to our Board of Directors, NPPC again has a strong team guiding our work of protecting the livelihoods of America’s pork producers.”In looking ahead to the rest of 2019 and beyond, delegates at the Pork Industry Forum adopted several important policy issues they’ll be working on. African Swine Fever was top-of-mind for delegates. They adopted a resolution on strengthening the pork industry’s efforts to prevent foreign animal diseases from entering the U.S. One of the many ways they’ll do this is working with USDA and the Food and Drug Administration on restricting imports of soy-based animal feed from countries with a high risk of transmitting foreign animal diseases.They’ll also continue to work on changing the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Hours of Service Rules. Haulers must remain in their trucks when animals are loaded, which the NPPC says should not count towards their “on-duty” time. They also passed a resolution calling for the USDA and FDA to be transparent in their regulation of cell-cultured meat products. “These resolutions reflect the concerns of the U.S. pork industry and the efforts we need to take to protect the livelihoods of producers,” says Herring. “NPPC will work with Congress, the Trump Administration, and others to tackle these and other issues important to our industry.”last_img read more

Fort Worth Country Day introduces new learning program

So far, projects have covered a wide variety of subjects: leadership and public speaking, dog training, riflery and fishing.Working off the motto “to make the best better,” Sellers said the students “learn by doing,” which is also the program’s slogan.Students are exposed to subject areas such as science, health, agriculture and citizenship. These projects are “in a positive environment where they receive guidance from adult mentors, and [students] are encouraged to take on proactive leadership roles,” Sellers said.The program meets once a month. But each project mentor can ask the students to meet more than the allotted time, if he or she thinks it would be beneficial.Sellers said she hopes the program continues to grow because she and her co-manager have many goals for the program.“We would love to see more students getting involved and competing at the County Show. We have a small garden on campus that we would love to expand to a much larger scale,” Sellers said.
