Wesleyan launches foundation to give good causes £1m a year

first_img Financial mutual Wesleyan has launched a new foundation with the aim of giving £1million a year to good causes.In partnership with Heart of England Community Foundation, the Wesleyan Foundation hopes to award around 100 grants in its first year. It will ask customers and members to nominate voluntary organisations for consideration. Wesleyan members will also have the opportunity throughout the year to vote on selected charities and grant recipients. Charities, community groups and social enterprises that meet the criteria can also apply directly to the fund.Three levels of funding will be awarded: small grants of £2,000 and under, medium-sized awards of between £2,000 and £10,000 and discretionary, large grants of more than £10,000.The funding will come from Wesleyan, while Heart of England Community Foundation will administer the grants and distribute it to organisations across the UK.In its first year, the Wesleyan Foundation has been set up with community foundations in: Birmingham, The Black Country, Warwickshire, South Yorkshire, Leeds & Bradford, Somerset, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire & Rutland, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.Over time, more areas will be added, while applications from outside these areas will be considered on a case-by-case basis.The first grants have already been allocated: the first three charities to receive medium-sized grants from the Foundation are Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project, which works to reduce isolation for those with dementia; Pets as Therapy, which provides therapeutic visits to people in need across the UK; and Books Beyond Words, which supports people with learning and communication difficulties.Wesleyan chairman Bryan Jackson said:“Wesleyan has a legacy of supporting great causes, and our Foundation take that to the next level. As a mutual, our members already have a say in how we operate, and our Foundation now gives them a further chance to choose how we help worthwhile causes.“By working with Heart of England Community Foundation, our hope is to award up to £1 million of grants per year to small charities and transform the lives of hundreds, if not thousands, of people in communities around the UK.”Image: Wesleyan Foundation Launch at WRAP – Wesleyan chairman Bryan Jackson (back right) and Heart of England Community Foundation chief executive Tina Costello (back left) mark the launch of the new Wesleyan Foundation with attendees at the Warwickshire Reminiscence Action Project in Stratford-upon-Avon, one of the first to be awarded funding by the Foundation.  65 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 Tagged with: grants trusts and foundations AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis24 Wesleyan launches foundation to give good causes £1m a year Advertisement  64 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 11 May 2017 | 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.

Asleep at the Wheel on Biotechnology

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Asleep at the Wheel on Biotechnology SHARE Previous articleTax Law Change Would Help Farmers Depreciate Equipment FasterNext articleIndiana Will Fight Obama Clean Power Plan Gary Truitt “This is the first time in 10 years this Committee has held a hearing on agriculture biotechnology” — are  you kidding me? Not according to  Senator Pat Roberts, R-Kansas, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture. Given the advancements in biotechnology, the impact on food production, and the controversy it has generated worldwide, you would think that the Senate committee charged with oversight of agriculture would have had dozens of hearings on the subject. In his opening statement, Roberts admitted the hearing, held last week, was long overdue, “Science has come a long way in those 10 years, and we recognize those beneficial advances today.” While I commend Roberts for holding the hearing, the lack of Congressional  leadership on this important issue for the past decade is reprehensible.There are three government agencies that regulate biotechnology in food production: the USDA Animal Plant Health Inspection Service, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Environmental Protection Agency. Roberts had representatives of all three agencies testify before the committee. But given the level of technological advancement in this area and the number of regulations these agencies produce, should not this kind of hearing be at least an annual event?  In their presentations, the regulators stressed the safety of biotechnology and their efforts to protect our food supply and the environment.This was far from a biotech love fest, with several witnesses calling for changes in the way biotechnology in agriculture is regulated. Gregory Jaffe, Project Director for Biotechnology with the Center for Science in the Public Interest, said, “CSPI has advocated for improvements in the federal oversight of GE crops to ensure safety to humans, animals, the environment, and agriculture.”  Those “improvements” consist of tighter regulations and more direct government control on how farmers use biotech technology. This is something farmers would not want and current conditions do not justify.This hearing was a result of legislation before the Senate that deals with the labeling of food products that contain GMOs. While much of the public concern over GMO labels and safety is due to activist groups and the misinformation they produce, some blame needs to be laid before Congress for not providing regular and public reviews of the technology and the regulations that govern it. Following the hearing National Corn Grower representative John Linder, a farmer from Edison, Ohio, said, “Today’s testimony underscored the fact that biotechnology is not only safe, but an important part of creating an efficient, affordable, and reliable food chain.” Yet, biotechnology faces a tough road ahead in the Senate because of a lack of understanding by many lawmakers.Just as farmers must be vigilant and manage this technology wisely, policy makers and elected officials must also stay alert to new advances and research and must provide adequate reassurance to the public that their food is safe and that proper regulations are in place. It should not be another 10 years before Congress holds a review of biotechnology and its use in agriculture.By Gary Truitt Home Commentary Asleep at the Wheel on Biotechnology By Gary Truitt – Oct 25, 2015 Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Roberts, Stabenow, Pressing USDA on Canada Dairy Policy

first_img Senate Agriculture Committee leaders want the Department of Agriculture to address a dairy pricing issue between the U.S. and Canada. Senators Pat Roberts and Debbie Stabenow are pressing USDA and the U.S. Trade Representative’s office to provide continued engagement with Canada over its dairy pricing policies that are harmful to U.S. dairy producers.In a letter to Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, the Senators say: “The potential for further and greater injury to U.S. producers will only continue to grow if this scheme remains in place.” The Senators also asked USDA and the USTR office to evaluate all tools available to mitigate any damaging effect from the pricing scheme being implemented by Canada.Source: NAFB News Service Roberts, Stabenow, Pressing USDA on Canada Dairy Policy By Hoosier Ag Today – May 16, 2017 Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for May 17, 2017Next articleMeet the 2017 Indy 500 Milk People Hoosier Ag Today SHARE SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Roberts, Stabenow, Pressing USDA on Canada Dairy Policy Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Turpin to return for Texas Tech

He was averaging 19.5 yards per touch and was 13th in the nation in all-purpose yards at 169.3 yards per game. Through two games, he was leading the country at 236.0 yards per game. Despite his history of big plays on special teams, Turpin won’t be returning kicks and punts just yet. “I don’t know if we’ll see him[Turpin] back there returning with those being some of the most violent plays of the game,” Patterson said.Before his injury, Turpin led the NCAA in punt returns (28.8 yards) and was one of just two players nationally to rank in the top 10 in punt returns and kickoff returns. Turpin was eighth in kickoff returns (32.8 yards).Texas TechThe Red Raiders offense, led by junior quarterback Patrick Mahomes II, represents a difficult challenge for the Horned Frog defense. TCU senior defensive end James McFarland said that Texas Tech will be “a big offensive challenge.”Mahomes threw for 734 yards and five touchdowns in Saturday’s 66-59 loss to Oklahoma. He also ran for 85 yards on 12 carries for 810 yards of total offense.Patterson said when it comes down to defense, they have to find a way to tackle better.“We’re fourth in the Big 12 [in defense] and we don’t think we’re any good,” he said. TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson coaches up his defense. (Sam Bruton/TCU 360 staff photographer)After playing four of its first five games at home, TCU returns home for the first time in four weeks. Texas Tech leads the all-time series over TCU 30-25-3, and the Horned Frogs are 3-3 against Texas Tech under Patterson. TCU has won the last two games, having defeated the Red Raiders 82-27 in Fort Worth and 55-52 in Lubbock.Kickoff is set for 2:30 p.m. at Amon G. Stadium.

Government forces reportedly holding three foreign journalists

Looking tired and with bruises under both eyes, he said that, before being captured by government forces in Aleppo, he had been escorted during his reporting by persons of foreign origin including Saudis, Chechens, Libyans and Qataris “who were all carrying a weapon.” Al-Ikhbariya also showed him holding a rocket-grenade launcher. Reporters Without Borders condemns the use of forced confessions that are filmed and then broadcast on television – following a practice often used by the authorities in Iran.The video did not mention Ünal’s East Jerusalem-born colleague, Kadumi, whose brother, Majed Al-Kadumi, told Agence France-Presse yesterday that the International Committee of the Red Cross in Jerusalem had confirmed to the family that he was also being held by the regular army.When contacted by AFP, the Red Cross refused to confirm or deny this information on the grounds that its work is confidential. According to the rebel Free Syrian Army, Kadumi sustained a shoulder injury at the time of his capture.As for Tice, who strings for the Washington Post, Al-Jazeera English and McClatchy and who went missing on 13 August, the Czech ambassador told Czech television that he was alive and was being held by government forces in a Damascus suburb. The Czech Republic represents US interests in Syria.If all this information is correct, Reporters Without Borders urges the Syrian authorities to release these three foreign journalists as well as all the Syrian journalists it is holding. At the moment, there are at least 31 Syrian journalists and citizen-journalists in government jails.Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile learned that Mohamed Omar Oussou, a well-known writer and actor, and several members of his family were arrested during a search of his home on 24 August. The documentary filmmaker Orwa Nyrabia, who runs Syria’s Dox-Box Festival and who was a jury member at the Amsterdam International Documentary Film Festival in 2011, was arrested at Damascus airport on 23 August as he was about to fly to Cairo. The airline confirmed that he did not board the flight.A fourth hearing was held on 29 August in the case of members and supporters of the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM) who were arrested in a raid on the centre in February. It seems the authorities now want to transfer the case to a civilian court. The judge is to issue a decision on 6 September.Reporters Without Borders reiterates its concern about SCM president Mazen Darwish and four other SCM activists who are still being held at an unknown location on unknown charges.

Stay SunSmart come rain or shine

first_imgUL Hospitals Group Working To Improve Patient Experience Children’s Hospital overspend impacting on most vulnerable A return to more typical weather patterns in the coming days does not mean any reduction in risk from UV radiation.Sheila Ryan, Advanced Nurse Practitioner, Dermatology, UL Hospitals Group said precautions need to be taken at this time of year whether the conditions are clear or cloudy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We have been fortunate to have a protracted spell of fine weather. It is great that people can get out and enjoy the sun but we also have to be sensible about it,” said Ms Ryan.“The forecast points to more typical Irish summer weather in the coming days but we still need to protect ourselves from the sun, in particular people working outdoors on farms, building sites and so on.“From March to September, the rays that can cause skin cancer are more intense irrespective of whether it is a fine day or a rainy day. People need to think about covering up; wearing sunglasses; seeking shade between 12 and 3 and wearing sun factor 30 or above,” explained Ms Ryan.“If we go to Spain or some other sun holiday destination, we will be sure to pack the sunscreen but we often forget to wear it at home. And that’s a mistake because you are getting the same damage from the same sun no matter how intense the heat might feel.”Skin cancer is the most common cancer in Ireland with approximately 10,000 new cases diagnosed every year. All three forms – melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma – of skin cancer are on the increase and all threeare linked to sun exposure and UV radiation.“Children are particularly vulnerable to developing skin cancer from exposure to the sun during childhood. And sometimes with kids, clothing is as good an option as sunscreen. It’s best to ensure that their shoulders are covered; that they are not in sleeveless shirts; that they wear sun hats and that when you do take them to the beach, that you remember to pack a little tent or screen to provide shade,” said Ms Ryan.She was speaking as University Hospital Limerick this Wednesday held a sun awareness event, providing information and advice to visitors, patients and staff.People were given advice and leaflets by specialist dermatology nurses and many also tried out a UV camera which can project the effects of sun exposure.“It is not a diagnostic test but more a tool we can use for this type of event to create awareness and get people thinking about their sun behaviour. And most people have a bit of fun with it as well,” said Ms Ryan.There are dermatology clinics run once a month in Ennis Hospital, twice a month in Nenagh and daily at the Charles Centre for Dermatology at UHL, including a specialist skin lesion clinic once a week.Other tips on how to keep both children and adults safe in the sun are available on the websites of the HSE, the Irish Skin Foundation and the Irish Cancer Society.Click here for more health news.
