first_img Tagged with: arts Funding 195 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Help Musicians UK launches £200,000 fund for music creators Help Musicians UK (HMUK) has announced the launch of a fund to support independently-driven music creators. The £200,000 Do It Differently Fund is open for applications via the HMUK website until 13 November, and has been designed by the charity following qualitative research into the funding gaps and needs of independent music creators in the UK.The fund will make 20 awards to individuals in its first round, whether they are a producer, composer, songwriter, musician, vocalist, DJ, or beatboxer, for example, at any stage of their career and in any genre. The fund will offer individuals or bands/ensembles of six members or less a grant of up to £3,000 focused on either developing experience in touring or recording. A further £2,000 is set aside for each successful applicant to go towards business planning and wellbeing services available directly from HMUK and its industry partners.The new fund aims to support music makers who want to retain their creative independence in either touring or recording. Artists will be able to access funding for a range of opportunities relating to the creative side of the industry, such as songwriting, composition, recording, releasing, touring and live development.Do It Differently will also provide access to experts in the industry who will advise each individual or group in developing sustainable business plans.In addition, successful applicants will gain access to a range of health and welfare services, including the Musicians Hearing Health Scheme and Music Minds Matter. The Do It Differently Fund will also offer opt-in access to a new Healthy Touring programme in association with the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM). The inaugural healthy touring programme will provide a support package to help music creators and their teams to stay healthy on tour.Claire Gevaux, Programme Director HMUK, said:“This year we’ve been listening to music creators and representatives from across the industry and have gained invaluable insights to inform our thinking about the need for a truly holistic package of support for independent music creators. The Do it Differently fund is a direct response to what we heard and by working with our partners we have now been able to create something completely unique where the health, welfare, creative and career development of music creators are of equal importance.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 196 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis8 Melanie May | 10 October 2018 | News 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.

Show the love by donating your Valentine’s Day funds, & other fundraising ideas

first_imgPair my Pet partners UK animals with those in need overseasAnother different idea, Dorset based veterinary charity Worldwide Veterinary Service (WVS) has launched Pair My Pet. The programme pairs loved and well cared for pets with other animals across the world who aren’t as fortunate – those that live on the streets or whose owners don’t have access to or can’t afford basic veterinary care. For a small monthly donation, the charity matches pets with some of the most vulnerable patients in its care, animals like ‘Bear’ the dog from Thailand (pictured above), a German Shepherd turfed out on the streets when his family relocated. Hungry and exhausted, he wandered into the territories of other strays where he was attacked and sustained a deep cut to his neck. Finally he was rescued and taken to WVS’s local clinic and shelter. He has since found a loving home. As part of the Pair My Pet programme, the nominated pet will receive a welcome pack, including a letter from their new friend, a certificate, pet-friendly recipes, and a postcard to write to said friend. They’ll also receive updates throughout the year.Fundraising and Communications Manager for WVS, Duncan Hook, said: “We’re a nation of animal lovers and our pets are very much part of our families. Now, on top of the chews, squeaky toys and balls, pets can be paired with a less fortunate animal around the world. It’s a fun way to support animal welfare projects, allowing the whole family (and your furry friend) to feel like you’re really making a difference.” Give a little love to your fellow animal lover with our purr-fect Blue Cross pin! ?

At first, viewers are led to believe that this poem is meant for their partner, spouse or significant other – but towards the end of the video the penny drops, and it suddenly becomes clear that they are in fact talking about their beloved pet.The video ends with a call to action, asking pet owners to share a personalised love letter or poem for their pet on social media this Valentine’s Day weekend in support of the campaign.To take part in the campaign, pet owners can write a poem or letter explaining why their pet is so special to them, and then share this on Twitter or Instagram – tagging @the_blue_cross and using the hashtag #YoursFurever.

George H.W. Bush: assassin and criminal

first_imgEvery national politician, from top Republicans to Bernie Sanders, and every sector of the corporate media, is using George H.W. Bush’s death to praise the 41st president as if he were a great leader of the people and a wonderful human being. But Bush’s sordid history shows he was a war criminal abroad and an enemy of the people at home. We’ll present the facts about that later. First we should answer this question: Why are the ruling-class politicians and media showering him with eulogies even beyond those usually thrown at dead presidents? It’s because Bush Sr. was both a member and a loyal servant of the U.S. ruling class, and a hardened Cold Warrior in office when the Soviet Union came apart. For this timing alone, the U.S. imperialist ruling class recognizes him as one of their heroes.Bush Sr. was himself from an aristocratic ruling-class family, the son of a senator and of New England wealth, who added to his wealth by grabbing oil money in Texas. He then ran for office and served Republican presidents as both United Nations envoy and head of the CIA (1976-77), vice president when Ronald Reagan was president (1981-89) and elected president from 1989-93.Bush Sr. shares responsibility for all the devastating crimes of U.S. imperialism in the post-World War II period. He shares guilt for the tens of millions of people killed in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and dozens of smaller U.S. military interventions and bloody coups of that period. Bush Sr. is being lauded partly because his style contrasts with the current occupant of the White House, whose foul comments dirty the air and the internet and expose the ugly face of U.S. imperialism. But while 41 didn’t make the kind of openly misogynist comments the current president can’t seem to repress, Bush Sr. was a serial sexist groper. Eight women who got within arms’ reach recently exposed that habit. In politics, his misogyny took the form of support for Justice Clarence Thomas.While he usually kept his ruling-class racism and bigotry off mic, Bush Sr. used an historically racist ad in his 1988 presidential campaign — the Willie Horton ad with its openly white supremacist rhetoric — to defeat Massachusetts Gov. Mike Dukakis. As vice president in the 1980s and then president, Bush Sr. presided over the government’s criminal negligence during the AIDS crisis. Basketball star Magic Johnson resigned from the National Commission on AIDS in September 1992, citing the Bush administration’s refusal to act. AIDS activists consider Bush Sr. responsible for tens of thousands of deaths.He also pursued the racist so-called War on Drugs, quadrupling the prison population by criminalizing millions of young men and women of color.In December 1989, he ordered the bombing and invasion of Panama, killing 3,000 Panamanians and destroying that country’s sovereignty.In January 1991, Bush Sr. ordered the bombing of Iraq. Forty-two days of war destroyed much of the civilian infrastructure in Baghdad and other cities. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died. With Bush Sr. as commander in chief, U.S. rockets purposely struck a civilian shelter in Amariyah on Feb. 13, 1991, killing 409 civilians, including many children. Later, after the Iraqis had effectively surrendered, U.S. planes trapped thousands of troops fleeing from southern Iraq and wiped them out on what became known as the “Highway of Death.”Bush Sr. had earlier, in August 1990, begun sanctions against Iraq that in the years to come, under the Bill Clinton administration, would lead to the early death of half a million Iraqi children and twice that number of adults.In the 1990s the Iraqis kept a portrait of Bush Sr. painted on the floor outside the entrance to the top Baghdad hotel, where his face would be regularly walked on. They hated him — for good reason.More crimes could be added to this list. What’s here is enough, however, to expose the eulogies as lies and propaganda. Bush Sr. was the epitome of the well-bred ruling-class assassin. He and his entire class are war criminals and enemies of the people.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

EPA Names 10 More Efficient Corn Ethanol Producers

first_imgHome Energy EPA Names 10 More Efficient Corn Ethanol Producers EPA Names 10 More Efficient Corn Ethanol Producers SHARE By Gary Truitt – Feb 11, 2015 Facebook Twitter Ten more corn ethanol plants were approved through the U.S. EPA’s efficient producer petition process (EP3) at the end of January, bringing the total to 19. Thefirst round of nine approvals were announced in December.The 10 corn ethanol plants include Badger State Ethanol LLC, Green Plains Ord LLC, Lincolnland Agri-Energy LLC, Tharaldson Ethanol Plant 1 LLC, Dakota Ethanol LLC, Green Plains Shenandoah LLC, Lincolnway Energy LLC, Farmers Energy Cardinal LLC, Highwater Ethanol LLC and Quad County Corn Processors.Late last year, the EPA streamlined the petition process used by producers wanting to demonstrate above-average greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions. Ethanol producers must provide the bushels of corn processed, their natural gas and electricity consumption and the gallons of ethanol produced, which are then plugged into a new GHG calculation tool developed by the agency.Under the current renewable fuels standard program(RFS), the production volume of existing corn ethanol plants was grandfathered in, and any new production above the gallons registered with the EPA are required, by law, to meet the 20 percent GHG reduction threshold when compared to the baseline gasoline. The average GHG reduction value for corn ethanol plants in the original 2010 modeling done by EPA was about 17 percent, including controversial indirect land use change emissions. Energy efficiency improvements and ethanol yield gains mean 19 ethanol producers can demonstrate GHG reductions better than 20 percent.

China: RSF asks UN to deem Chinese cartoonist’s detention as arbitrary

Considering that the cartoonist was granted refugee status by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Alviani urges Chinese authorities to “let Jiang settle in Canada with his family, which he was preparing for when he was unduly arrested.”Jiang Yefei, known for his satirical drawings published by US online magazine Boxun, had been a refugee in Thailand since 2008. On October 28, 2015, he was arrested at the request of Chinese authorities and “repatriated” in the same aircraft as Swedish publisher Gui Minhai, who is at the moment still detained in China with no trial date. RSF recently filed a similar application for Gui to the UN.China ranks 176th out of 180 in the 2018 RSF World Press Freedom Index.

Thirty-three professional and citizen journalists killed since March 2011

first_img Follow the news on Syria News July 7, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Thirty-three professional and citizen journalists killed since March 2011 Help by sharing this information SyriaMiddle East – North Africa ٍRead in Arabic / بالعربيةA total of 33 professional and citizen journalists have been killed since the start of the uprising in Syria in March 2001, Reporters Without Borders said today, after attending yesterday’s meeting of the “Friends of Syria” in Paris as an observer.The past few weeks have been particularly deadly, with around 10 citizen journalists killed since late May. Reporters Without Borders is also very disturbed to learn that freelance journalist Mohamed Sami Al-Kayyal was arrested in the coastal city of Tartus on 27 June.“’We firmly condemn the remorseless crackdown and accelerating cycle of violence in what is now a civil war,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Freely and independently reported news and information are now an absolute necessity but they are unfortunately getting rarer and rarer. June saw the death of an unprecedented number of citizen journalists who have been sacrificing their lives to provide video footage of the uprising, the crackdown and now the military operations by armed groups fighting the ruthless Assad regime.“We would also like to stress the difficulty of verifying any information coming out of Syria. The regime has managed to impose a media blackout by posing many obstacles to visits by foreign journalists – who are exposed to great danger if they come – and by jailing Syrian professional journalists who refuse to relay government propaganda. As for the activists who try to report and document the regime’s atrocities, they are hunted down relentlessly by the security services, which kill them or sometimes torture them to death.”Following the warThe latest victim is Wael Omar Bard, a citizen journalist who was killed in Jarjanaz, 40 km south of Idlib, on 26 June. Bard used to live in Saudi Arabia and it was there that he started supporting the Syrian uprising by posting information about it on social networks. Then he returned to his native Syria armed with just a video camera and started filming demonstrations and the regime’s atrocities.According to the Doha Centre for Media Freedom, he was filming a clash between the regular army and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) when he was killed by a shot to the heart. Activists said that on the eve of his death he went back to the village where he was born, Teftanazz, 10 km northeast of Idlib. He went there to bury his brother, a doctor specializing in emergency cases who was murdered by intelligence officers.The citizen journalist Hamza Mahmoud Othman was fatally shot by a sniper in Homs on 21 June while filming the regular army’s shelling of two of its districts, Jobar and Al-Sultaniyeh. He often posted videos online showing events in Homs, which has been the scene of violent fighting for many months. He was the brother of Ali “Al-Jedd” Othman, the citizen journalist who ran the Baba Amr press centre in Homs until it was destroyed in February and who was then captured by intelligence officers on 28 March.Bassim Darwish died on 15 June from the injuries he received two days earlier in an explosion while covering the bombing of Rastan, a town 30 km north of Homs, by two military aircraft. He was one of the founders of the Rastan press centre and had covered many demonstrations in the region as well as the regular army’s operations.Ayham Youssef Al-Hariri, an anti-government activist since March 2011, was fatally injured by the blast from a shell in Deraa on 13 June. Another local activist told the Doha Centre for Media Freedom that Hariri had been filming the army’s shelling of the Deraa district of Al-Sadd when he was hit by the explosion.Aged 35, married and the father of five children, Hariri had been imprisoned and tortured twice by intelligence officers. As well as gathering and distributing news, he organized demonstrations, delivered aid to the families of victims and helped smuggle government opponents across the nearby border into Jordan.Abdelhamid Idriss Matar, a 22-year-old student of agro-food engineering at Baath University in Homs, was fatally injured by a shot fired from a tank as he was filming an assault on Al-Qussair, a town 25 km south of Homs, on 31 May. He often filmed demonstrations and army operations, posting his videos on YouTube.Reporters Without Borders already reported the deaths of two other citizen journalists last month – Ahmed Hamada in Homs on 16 June and Khaled Al-Bakir in Al-Qussair on 10 June.The Coordinating Committee in Tel Rifaat, a town 20 km north of Aleppo, said Mohamed Hamdo Hallaq was killed by a shell while filming the army’s bombardment of the nearby town of Azaz on 2 July. The Doha Centre for Media Freedom said a citizen journalist identified as Samer Khalil Al-Sataleh was killed during the shelling of Douma, a town on the north-eastern outskirts of Damascus, on 28 June. And the Syrian Journalists League said Ghias Khaled Al-Hmouria was killed while filming an FSA operation in Douma on 25 June.Nonetheless, due to the difficulty of obtaining information from Syria, Reporters Without Borders has not yet managed to independently confirm the deaths of the three people named in the previous paragraph or the fact that they were citizen journalists.Reporters Without Borders has confirmed that, as of yesterday, a total of 33 Syrian citizens and professional journalists have been killed in connection with their journalistic activities since the start of the uprising in March 2011.Death in detentionReporters Without Borders also condemns the deaths of two citizen journalists in detention, Hassan Mohamed Al-Azhari and Rami Ismael Iqbal. Arrested in the northeastern coastal city of Latakia on 13 April, Azhari was transferred to an intelligence agency prison in Damascus. His family was told that he died in detention – probably under torture – on 17 May. Aged 24, he was one of the founders of the Coordinating Committee in Latakia, where he filmed demonstrations and the government’s crackdown.Iqbal, 28, died in detention following his arrest on 21 December 2011, but it is not known exactly where and when he died. A citizen journalist since the start of the uprising, he filmed local developments and provided information to foreign media. He was first arrested on 20 March 2011 after giving an interview to the BBC and went underground after his release.The security forces raided his family home several times and even arrested his father and brothers. He sustained a gunshot injury and was captured, along with many other activists during a major army operation on 21 December in Dael, the town where he was born, located near Deraa.

Arrested on 18 September 1994, Makeli is currently being held in Kigali central prison.”We have been voicing our concern about Makeli’s fate for the past ten years and, once again, we reiterate our demand for his release,” the organisation said.Reporters Without Borders also reiterated its concern about growing threats to press freedom in Rwanda: “The authorities in Kigali are always boasting of their support for democracy but they do not seem to worry about the threats to journalists whose reports they find irritating.”The organisation added: “On the 10th anniversary of Makeli’s arrest, we call on the Rwandan government to see that his release would send a strong signal of a good faith if it wants to be able continue proclaiming its support for press freedom.”The Kigali state prosecutor told Reporters Without Borders in October 2001 that Makeli was accused of inciting genocide in his reports. While covering an appearance of the Virgin in Kibeho, in the west of the country, in May 1994, he reported that she was supposed to have said: “The parent is in heaven.” The prosecutor insisted that, in the context of that moment, this was taken to mean, “President Habyarimana is in heaven” and was interpreted as a message of support for Habyarimana and, by extension, the policy of exterminating Tutsis. Reporters Without Borders obtained a recording of this programme and played it to Rwandans who were in the country at the time of the genocide. None of them thought Makeli was fomenting hate.
