Any donation of £1 or more to a registered charity can be tax-efficient and therefore worth more to the charity at no extra cost to the donor. Even better, donations from payroll are not only tax-efficient, they will also attract a 10% additional “donation” from the government.Find out more from CAF’s GivingToday site.

These actions focused on Amazon’s neglect of essential workers laboring on 10- and 12-hour shifts, during the galloping COVID-19 pandemic. Over 20,000 Amazon frontline workers have tested positive for the coronavirus.Amazon boss, Jeff Bezos, is now worth $204 billion, due to the sweat and blood of Amazon’s world workforce.Speakers at the rally declared their solidarity with the organizing drive of Alabama Amazon warehouse workers, who have now filed for a union election. One former Amazon worker called for a union of all Amazon workers.The demonstrators marched across Amazon’s “world campus” to the company’s giant spheres. The TCOEW and supporters will march on Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ mansion in the ruling class town of Medina, Wash., on Nov. 30.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Boyd has withdrawn as the sole finalist to fill the Fort Worth school district superintendent vacancy, according to district’s website.Boyd notified trustees of his decision at 7 p.m. Saturday in an email writing,“… the Santa Fe community has helped me to realize that the timing is not right and that we need to continue forward and not lose momentum for the sake of our children.”“While it was a difficult decision, I respectfully withdraw my candidacy for the position of Superintendent of the Fort Worth Independent School District.”Fort Worth ISD’s Board of Trustees voted 7-0 on Feb. 7 to name Boyd as the sole finalist for the position and was slated to make him a final job offer on March 7.Boyd’s withdrawal comes a day after Sante Fe Public School’s board met to discuss possible contract amendments as a means for his retainment.Though no action was taken to change Boyd’s contract or increase his salary, an incoming Santa Fe board member, Maureen Cashmon, said Boyd had “betrayed” the city by entertaining the Fort Worth ISD position and hoped the district hired him.At the last Fort Worth ISD board meeting on Feb. 23, parents and educator association leaders voiced their concerns about the possible new superintendent, pointing out his short tenure in Sante Fe and the difference of size between the two districts.Boyd has served as superintendent of Sante Fe Public Schools since 2012. The district is reported to have around 13,000 students – a low number compared to Fort Worth ISD’s 86,000.Interim Superintendent Pat Linares is expected to remain in her role, according to the press release. Linares has led the district since former superintendent Walter Dansby resigned in June.

Receive email alerts October 13, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Parliament to question former president about illegal phone-tapping, but threats and sabotage could be ignored April 27, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Colombia October 21, 2020 Find out more ColombiaAmericas Help by sharing this information Organisation News News RSF_en The investigation into illegal telephone-tapping by the Colombian intelligence agency known as the Administrative Department of Security (DAS) entered a new phase yesterday when the House of Representatives initiated a procedure that could result in former President Alvaro Uribe being questioned about his presumed involvement.Uribe originally denied any role in the misuse of the intelligence services to combat criticism of his so-called “democratic security” policies during his two terms. The phone-tapping and other dirty tricks by DAS were the subject of a Reporters Without Borders country-visit and report last May. According to documents we saw, a total of 16 journalists from 10 news media were among the targets.We take note of this initiative by the House of Representatives, of which the potential judicial consequences appear to be limited. We also take note of the latest advances in the investigation but we think they are insufficient. The “DASgate” scandal was not limited to illegal phone tapping. On the one hand, it consisted of infiltration of the state intelligence services by paramilitary groups. The spying on politicians, judges, trade unionists, human rights activists and journalists was accompanied by acts of intimidation, sabotage, censorship and misuse of the protection given to those who had been threatened.The targets included Radio Nizkor journalist Claudia Julieta Duque, who was constantly followed and was the victim of a strange car “accident” in 2008, and Hollman Morris, the producer of Contravía, one of the few current affairs programmes to tackle sensitive issues such as the civil war, indigenous land disputes and human rights, which was repeatedly suspended by state-owned Canal Uno. The targets also included Canal Uno journalists Ignacio Gómez and Daniel Coronell. A highly suspect break-in and computer robbery – the fifth in three years – recently occurred at Gómez’s home. While president, Uribe publicly criticised and smeared Coronell, exposing him to danger.All these and other journalists suffered the effects of the “black propaganda” orchestrated by the intelligence services with the presidential palace’s direct approval. Some of these journalists have had to go into exile to escape the threats. Morris is currently residing in the United States under an academic programme.These serious abuses were not among the grounds for the disciplinary measures taken on 1 October against nine senior officials including three former DAS chiefs – Jorge Noguera Cotes, Andrés Peñate Giraldo and María del Pilar Hurtado – and former presidential chief of staff Bernardo Moreno, who has been banned from holding public office for 18 years for illegal phone-tapping.The case brought by the attorney-general’s office did not mention the journalists and other known DAS victims and did not include the statements they have made. This omission was the subject of an appeal that Duque’s lawyer filed with the directorate for special investigations of the attorney-general’s office on 6 October. Reporters Without Borders, which has been given a copy, calls on attorney-general’s office to study it carefully and to order an additional investigation.The activities carried out by DAS officials, including those at the highest level, require criminal prosecutions as well as administrative sanctions. Reporters Without Borders undertakes to support any attempts by the journalists concerned to obtain reparation. We also hope former President Uribe’s testimony to parliament will at the very least help to establish the facts.

ABCNews.com(DALLAS) — The shooting that killed a Dallas police officer on Tuesday is “gut-wrenching” and “too much to bear” in the wake of the deadly sniper attack that targeted Dallas police officers less than two years ago, says the city’s former police chief.Rogelio Santander, a young Dallas police officer, died this morning after he was shot in the line of duty Tuesday afternoon.A second Dallas police officer, Crystal Almeida, and a Home Depot loss prevention officer, Scott Painter, were also shot during the attack. They are both in critical condition but are making “remarkable recoveries,” Dallas Police Chief Reneé Hall said today.The suspect was arrested Tuesday night.This shooting comes less than two years after a sniper targeted Dallas police, gunning down five law enforcement in July 2016. The sniper attack was the deadliest day for United States law enforcement since 9/11.“The grieving process hadn’t played itself out — before you can even finish grieving, you end up facing two more officers being shot,” said former Dallas police chief and ABC News contributor David Brown. “It seems too much to bear in such a short time for a department.”Brown, who was the police chief at the time of the 2016 attack, retired several months later after 33 years with the department.The Dallas Police Department is a strong and “tight-knit family” in the wake of the sniper attack, Brown said, but the department and the law enforcement profession overall still face tireless battles beyond the daily risks of the job: Applications are down nationwide, law enforcement deaths are on the rise and the public, in some cases, is losing trust in the officers in their community.Dallas officers are “still coming to work and doing their jobs, but it’s a tough environment,” Brown said. “They’re pretty beat down. They’re so concerned about what’s next. It just seems like, it’s like this cloud over the department.”Brown also stressed the impact of the job on the family of officers, whom he likes to call “second responders.”“They’re not on the scene, they’re not on the job, but they’re living it,” he said. “They’re afraid for their loved one.”Tuesday marked the first deadly shooting of a Dallas officer since the sniper attack, though several suburban departments in the area have lost officers recently, Brown said.To Brown, the loss is “gut-wrenching.”Almeida and Santander both joined the force three years ago, The Dallas Morning News reported.“It’s amazing to me the young people that still want to go into the profession,” said Brown. “It takes a lot of character and courage.”Almeida “is doing amazingly well,” Michael Mata, president of the Dallas Police Association, told reporters today. “She’s able to move parts of her arms and legs.”Mata added, “She’s a fighter. The doctors treating her are greatly surprised in the improvements that she’s made in the last 24 hours. We just ask for continued prayers. It’s going to be a very, very long road for her.”Mata called Santander “an amazing young man” who was widely respected in his community.“We are going to take care of his family. They will for always and forever be a part of the Dallas Police Association and the Dallas Police Department,” he said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

The scheme is being run by the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) and fundedby the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). It provides funding for workers’ safety advisers (WSAs), who can helpworkers and employers identify and manage risks, draw up control measures, andprovide expert health and safety information and advice. A total of £3m has been made available over the next three years for thescheme, called the WSA Challenge Fund. Organisations or individuals can alsoapply as partnerships. Winners for this year’s funding will be announced on 9 June, with the moneybeing made available from July. “Increasing worker involvement has been shown to improve health andsafety performance and is a key part of HSC’s new strategy, but six out of 10workplaces have no form of employee involvement,” said HSC chairman, BillCallaghan. “The WSA Challenge Fund is a great opportunity to deliver the strategyand get resources into the hands of people who need it most – employers andemployees in small firms,” he added. www.hse.gov.uk/workers/involvement/wsachallenge.htm Comments are closed.
