Charity Finance Group (CFG) has launched the Small Charities Programme for England and Wales, supported by a grant of £135,000 by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.Launching in January next year and due to run to August 2017, the programme will deliver subsidised training for small charities, develop and collect resources to help small charities manage their finances and support the work of community accountants.The training will cover a range of charity finance topics from managing budgets to how to manage tax. In total, six half-day modules on charity finance will be delivered across England and Wales, with the aim of providing 1,000 places for charities with an income of under £1m. Fees from the training will be used to fund a travel bursary programme to help small charities attend the training.Charities can book via the new Small Charities Programme website, which will also provide, and signpost to, a range of tools and resources for small charities. The programme will develop over time and deliver new resources to help charities with their finances.Community accounting services will also be supported by the programme with advice and surgeries for community accountants on how to improve their services, and through a number of roundtables to discuss how local accounting services can be supported.Nick Faraday, small charities programme manager, said:“Small charities are grappling with significant financial challenges due to a combination of increased demand and funding pressures. However, they often can’t afford to get access to financial training and support. They can also find it difficult to access the resources that they need to manage their finances effectively. Our hope is that this programme will boost the financial capabilities of small charities and enable them to manage change.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 186 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Advertisement CFG launches programme to help small charities’ finances Melanie May | 20 September 2016 | News 185 total views, 1 views today Tagged with: Charity Finance Group small charities 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.

His own interest in the topic started in 1998 when reading a book about Jack the Ripper and he began researching a series of murders.The bulk of his speech at the luncheon was focused on his research behind The Midnight Assassin, a narrative exposing the 1885 serial killer in Austin, Texas. While gruesome details oozed out of his speech, the audience chuckled at Hollandsworth’s ability to sprinkle in humor while discussing an unusual topic.“There’s so many boring speeches that you have to sit through in your life, so I try to be entertaining and conversational,” Hollandsworth said.Crime writing has become a major focus for Hollandsworth’s articles, but that was not where his career began. Hollandsworth covered the football games for The Daily Skiff during his time at TCU. He then went on to be a sports reporter for the Dallas Times Herald.Larry Adams, Presdient of the TCU Retirees’ Association said alumni speakers, like Hollingsworth, are popular guests.“Members benefit from hearing the experience of another TCU alumni by finding pride in our graduates as they go on and pursue successful careers such as Skip Hollandsworth has done as a writer,” Adams said.Many in the crowd agreed.“I thought he was terrific,” Mary Lane, former Director of Nursing said.Lane has been a member of the TCU Retirees’ Association since 2006. She sat next to Jean Andrus who has been a member since 2007.“I love hearing former students speak,” said Andrus, former Dean of Education.The next luncheon for the TCU Retirees’ Association, in their 34th year of the program, will be Tuesday, October 10th.

April 27, 2021 Find out more February 26, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government urged to heed appeals for release of Hu Jia, who begins third month in detention June 2, 2021 Find out more ChinaAsia – Pacific RSF_en Organisation Follow the news on China Receive email alerts China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison China’s Cyber Censorship Figures Reporters Without Borders reiterates its call for the release of human rights activist Hu Jia, who will tomorrow begin his third month of detention by the Beijing public security bureau on a charge of inciting subversion of state authority, while his wife, Zeng Jinyan, and their baby girl, now three and a half months old, continue to be closely watched by the political police.”Hu Jia’s arrest and indictment just a few months before the start of the Beijing Olympic Games was a blatant provocation that prompted a series of protests in China and abroad”, the press freedom organisation said.”The Beijing authorities continue for the time being to turn a deaf ear to the calls for his release, but we hope the government will be forced to intercede on his behalf, as it already did for Ching Cheong and Yu Huafeng”, Reporters Without Borders added. “The release of all journalists and cyber-dissidents before the start of the Games is one of our demands”.More than one thousand Internet users have already signed the petition for Hu’s release on the Reporters Without Borders website: http://www.rsf.org/article.php3?id_article=25197Hu’s lawyer and family were recently able to visit him at the public security detention centre where he is being held in Beijing. Despite rumours that he could be freed soon, his friends and relatives say there is no indication that the authorities have decided not to try him.After being allowed to use her mobile phone again, his wife, Zeng Jinyan, was interviewed by Radio Free Asia on 21 February. She said she was surprised when she was finally allowed to visit her husband in prison on 17 February. Teng Biao, a lawyer and friend of the couple, said the international support for Hu Jia and his family has had an impact on the Chinese authorities, apparently persuading to relax the measures isolating them from the outside world.Police are still stationed at the entrance to the couple’s apartment building, surveillance cameras have been installed and a permanent police surveillance unit has been installed in an apartment above theirs. Zeng’s phone is being tapped and she said she was nervous about giving interviews, especially to foreign news media. She explained that the police could refuse to let her leave the apartment or see Hu Jia again.When a foreign reporter managed to visit the apartment last week, Zeng confirmed that she was very worried about Hu and his health, which is fragile.Hu’s lawyer, Li Fangping, said on 21 February that he was baffled by the way the case against his client was being conducted. “I think we may have to wait until the verdict in order to have access to the documents and evidence in the case file”, he said.Several friends of the couple are also still under police surveillance. Teng Biao’s passport has been confiscated since 28 January and he has been advised not to try to visit Zeng.On 27 December, Hu Jia was at home with Zeng and their then six-week-old daughter when about 20 policemen burst in at around 3 p.m., disconnected their Internet connection and phone lines and then left with Hu. Other policemen, who stayed in the apartment to prevent from Zeng alerting their friends about his arrest, showed her a warrant that said he was charged with “inciting subversion of state authority”. News News Help by sharing this information Two months after human rights activist Hu Jia’s arrest, Reporters Without Borders continues to campaign for his immediate release, while the protests about his detention continue in China and abroad, and his wife and friends remain under close police surveillance. to go further News Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News ChinaAsia – Pacific March 12, 2021 Find out more
Armenia is ranked 79th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index, five places lower than in the 2016 Index. April 6, 2018 Mounting concern about press freedom in Armenia News April 9, 2021 Find out more Organisation Help by sharing this information to go further Credit: Karen Minasyan / AFP Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Follow the news on Armenia June 8, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts RSF_en ArmeniaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesMedia independence Judicial harassmentViolenceFreedom of expression News November 11, 2020 Find out more Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh News As Armen Sarkissian, the first Armenian president to elected by parliament, prepares to take office on 9 April, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) points out that halting the decline in media freedom will be a major task facing Armenia’s government.“We are disturbed by the downward trend in respect for press freedom in Armenia and we urge parliament to reconsider recent legislative initiatives reducing the right of access to information and obstructing journalists’ work,” said Johann Bihr, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The authorities must also conduct full and impartial investigations into acts of violence against journalists and end impunity for such acts.”Right to information threatenedRSF is concerned about a series of legislative initiatives reducing journalists’ access to information in the public interest, the latest of which keep reporters away from the places where the authorities take decisions.Under legislative amendments passed by parliament on 23 March, without prior discussion with the journalistic community, government ministers will no longer be able to give interviews without the prime minister’s permission, and reporters will not normally be allowed to attend government meetings, including cabinet meetings, which will be held behind closed doors.A local government law approved the same day included a surprise, last-minute amendment that deprives journalists of access to the city hall in the capital, Yerevan. They will be restricted to a separate press centre and will not be able to attend municipal council meetings without the mayor’s prior authorization.The amendment was added to the law at its second reading, and its hasty adoption is attributed to an incident at a municipal council meeting in February, when reporters were able to provide live TV coverage of municipal officials and ruling party members using violence against an opposition representative.In 2017, media and civil society representatives campaigned against a law proposed by the justice ministry restricting access to state-held information. Its provisions were much less liberal than those in place for the past 14 years. In a bid to defuse tension, the bill’s adoption was postponed for six months in December, but local NGOs are still calling for it to be scrapped or for a proper process of consultation.The lack of consultation is a recurring problem. Journalists did not learn about major amendments to the law on protection of personal data until two months after their adoption in early 2017. The amendments impose drastic curbs on the media’s ability to gather and publish personal information, forcing them to obtain the consent of the persons concerned, regardless of their status.By eliminating the exemption that journalists previously enjoyed, the law now contradicts Armenia’s media law, which allows the publication of information about a person’s family and private life if a public interest is served. Investigative reporting is now endangered because public figures could sue journalists for revealing personal information even if the journalists were investigating corruption, for example.Rising violence, continuing impunityThe number of attacks on media personnel has increased in recent years and at least 17 journalists were the victims of violence in 2017.The 2017 parliamentary election campaign was the most fraught period. Shoghik Galstyan and Hayk Petrosyan of the news website Araratnews.am and Sisak Gabrielyan of the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty Armenian service were attacked near the headquarters of one of the candidates in Yerevan on election day itself.Three other journalists were previously the victims of violence during the election campaign, while several journalists were threatened and prevented from covering the voting.Surge in defamation suitsLast year also saw a big surge in the number of legal actions against journalists and media outlets. A total of 60 lawsuits were filed in 2017, more than three times the 2016 total of 17, and more than at any time since defamation was decriminalized in 2010.No fewer than 30 complaints were brought in March 2017 alone against Daniel Ioannisyan, the founder of the fact-checking website Sut.am and an NGO called the Union of Informed Citizens. None of the cases prospered in court.

He cannot be named for legal reasonsThe girl has previously told the court that she met the boy in a take away and that they went for a walk and he raped her behind a nearby building.On the fourth day of the trial at the Central Criminal Court, Michael O’Higgins SC, defending, asked the girl why she sent a few texts to a friend in the early hours saying, “I don’t know what happened”.She replied, “I just wanted somebody to be able to help.”When asked by counsel if it was possible that she didn’t, in fact, know what had happened, the girl replied, “I know exactly what happened, but I also know that at that time I was in shock.”“It wasn’t easy to say,” the girl added, who broke down in tears several times during the cross-examination.When asked if she had told her friends “something of a white lie” by saying she didn’t know what had happened, the girl said she didn’t think it was fair to call it a white lie.“I was trying to ask for help but I couldn’t bring myself to say what it was,” she explained.The girl was also asked about a phone call she made to her friend during the alleged incident at 1:15 am, when she says the accused had briefly left the scene to check out a car that had stopped at the front of the building.In a statement to gardaí, the girl said she rang her friend and was telling her she didn’t know what to do, that she was with the accused and she didn’t know how to get out of there.“She didn’t really understand what I was talking about and asked me what’s wrong, what happened. I hung up then because (the accused) had come back,” the statement read.When asked in court why she had hung up the phone, she replied, “I thought that it would annoy him that I called her.”Counsel for the defence then asked why she subsequently told gardaí in a separate statement that she had got no answer when she rung her friend, and whether her evidence was therefore unreliable.“I was in a very different head-space then than I am now,” she said, “I don’t think these small inconsistencies make it unreliable.”Counsel continued to press her and said that a call to a friend in the middle of such an event was very important.“Not for me, compared to the event that took place. Everything else compared to that was small,” she said.Mr O’Higgins also quizzed the girl as to why she had changed her Facebook profile picture the next day to a photo from the night before showing herself and her friends outside a shop.“At that time I was still in shock. I was trying to move on with things and pretend this didn’t happen,” she replied.The trial continues before Ms Justice Deirdre Murphy and a jury of eight men and four women.

Wärtsilä designed the modules and sourced the required equipment that includes valves and instruments, from suppliers around the world The Wärtsilä modules, here being moved onto a barge, were delivered from the Cosco yard to arrive in Shanghai in time for the scheduled launch of the vessel. (Credit: Logistic Plus) Finland-based technology company Wärtsilä has announced that it has successfully managed and delivered the three regasification modules for Floating Storage Regasification Unit (FSRU) in China.The vessel, named ‘Transgas Power’, was constructed at the Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard located in Shanghai for Greek operator Dynagas.The new modules are designed and the required equipment that includes valves and instruments are sourced from suppliers around the world.In September 2018, the contract to fabricate the units was awarded to the Cosco shipyard in Qidong, China.Wärtsilä said that the work on the contract has been managed and coordinated from its office in Asker, Norway.Floating Storage Regasification Unit comprises three trainsWärtsilä Marine Gas Solutions project manager Geir Kirkemo said: “Building Regas modules is something of a jigsaw puzzle. However, thanks to detailed planning, excellent teamwork, open communication, and great cooperation we delivered the project to the client’s full satisfaction and on schedule.“We always aim to be the best possible partner to our customers, which apart from offering technical solutions at the highest level, involves listening closely to the client, and striving always to fulfil his expectations.”The three regasification modules, which are weighing 450, 80, and 240 tonnes, have been delivered on 28 March while the FSRU was launched two days later.Wärtsilä has also delivered the related regasification equipment that includes pumps, heat exchangers, valves, and instrumentation for installation in the engine room.The regasification modules delivered for the China’s first new built LNG FSRU are based on the use of seawater and steam as energy sources, and water/glycol as the energy carrier in a combined loop.Wärtsilä had signed the original contract in September 2017.
