In a pastoral letter to churches this week, the archbishops of Canterbury and York encouraged people to “stand up for truth and challenge falsehoods.” They said: “We call on all standing for election to reject the language of prejudice and not to stoke stigma or hatred towards people on the grounds of their religion, culture, origin, identity or belief.”The Primate of the Church in Wales, Archbishop John Davies, also issued a statement saying Wales faces many needs and challenges and calling for politicians to give proper time, attention and debate to improving the lives of people suffering increasing despair.Read the full article here.

Recently, Bangkok has one of the most traffic jams in the World. As a result, more and more people have moved in to live in the city instead. Because of land prices, traditional house and garden are unaffordable, replaced by Vertical living which has a lot more density in compact sites. For Sindhorn Residence, the design team had to work with such a limited space and tried their best to create a microclimate, in order to provide a comfortable living space for the residents.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaSindhorn Residence is a  condominium right in the middle of Bangkok’s prime area. The property was located just across Netherlands Embassy which occupied a lot of green areas. However the site itself was not very big for 2 buildings, Tower A and B.

Legacy research confirms ‘one size fits all’ approach is not enough

first_img  28 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Legacy research confirms ‘one size fits all’ approach is not enough Howard Lake | 10 November 2008 | News Tagged with: legacies Research / statistics TDA Research by direct-to-digital agency TDA and a consortium of five charities indicates that legacy fundraisers and direct marketers need to re-think communications strategies to engage with potential legators on a more personal level.The quantitative study of charity supporters revealed three distinct attitudes to leaving a charitable bequest. Around 30% were actively considering pledging a legacy or had already done so, 41% were open to the idea, and 29% said they would not mention a charity in their will.TDA’s Head of Fundraising, David Burrows, believes that the survey suggests that charities should segment their databases more strategically. This would enable the development of more relevant propositions and creative executions according to people’s willingness to consider a legacy gift. Currently, many charities treat potential legators as one homogenous group.He added that the study supported findings from earlier focus groups carried out by the TDA legacy research consortium, particularly those surrounding the importance of language and tone.Burrows said that saying the right things in the right way can help lift many of the barriers that might stop people leaving a legacy. “Simple measures – such as talking about gifts or donations rather than using the term legacy – can make a real difference,” he said.The charities involved in the research were Barnardo’s, The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association, The National Trust, Save the Children and World Vision.www.tdaltd.com AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Mass revolt grows against government in Turkey

first_imgIstanbul, June 2. Photo: Communist Party of Turkey (KTP)June 3 — A small protest to hold onto a green space in downtown Istanbul that began five days ago has grown to a massive movement against the Turkish prime minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, and his Islamic-based Justice and Development Party (AKP), which has ruled the country since its first electoral victory in 2003.When the Istanbul police reacted violently against the first group of hundreds of demonstrators trying to stop the government from cutting down 606 trees and replacing them with a giant shopping mall and the replication of a historical military barracks, tens of thousands of people in Istanbul came out in defiance of the police.By the third day, hundreds of thousands of demonstrators from different sectors of Turkish society came out in the major Turkish cities — Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and others — to protest against the government. The government even had to pull the police out of central Istanbul and allow access to the giant Taksim Square.Demonstrators included youths gathered by social media, the opposition secular Republican People’s Party (CHP) and even members of rival soccer clubs that were uncharacteristically united against the government. But it also included leftist forces like the Turkish Communist Party, which has joined the protest and is calling for spreading and continuing the struggle.Istanbul, June 2. Photo: Communist Party of Turkey (KTP)A news release earlier today reported that Turkey’s major trade unions, including the Confederation of Revolutionary Trade Unions (DISK), the Confederation of Public Workers’ Unions (KESK) and the Education and Science Workers’ Union (Eğitim-Sen), are meeting to discuss a call for a general strike.Such an intervention by the massive Turkish working class would give enormous weight to the anti-government protests that by now have taken place in all of the 81 provinces ruled by the Turkish state. It would also push them in a clearly progressive direction.While the struggle has not reached yet the intensity of the Egyptian revolution in Tahrir Square more than two years ago, it is similar in that it has rallied all sorts of diverse sectors of Turkish society against an authoritarian government. It is apparent that as of now divergent class forces are participating in the anti-government actions and attempting to win the participants to their particular interests.Split in Turkish ruling circlesA sign of the division in Turkey’s ruling political circles — and by extension, in Turkey’s dominant capitalist class — was made apparent by the sharp differences expressed by government leaders.Erdogan has stood behind the police repression — which has already resulted in 1,500 arrests, hundreds badly wounded, and some reportedly killed in the demonstrations. He called the demonstrators “extremists” and a “a bunch of looters” and belittled the protests as a temporary blip. Erdogan’s party has won three elections since 2003. (AP, June 3)The same article reported that Turkish President Abdullah Gul has defended the right of the demonstrators to protest, stating, “Democracy does not mean elections alone.”Some of the opposition forces in Turkey were able to raise $55,000 to place an ad in the New York Times criticizing the Erdogan government and sympathizing with the demonstrators.Like Egypt and Iran, Turkey is a regional power in Western Asia, even though it has been dependent militarily on U.S. imperialism and economically on German imperialism for much of the period since World War II. Turkey is a member of NATO and during the Cold War had its military lined up against the Soviet Union. Turkish soldiers fought under U.S. command in Korea in 1950-1953 against the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea.Most recently, Erdogan has made Turkey the frontline state in the imperialist effort to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad in Syria. This has drawn Turkey closer to what is an extremely unpopular war among a majority in Turkey. We have seen no reports, however, of slogans opposing this war among the demonstrators.Erdogan has opened negotiations with the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK), the group that with a guerrilla war has defended Kurdish rights since 1984 in the Kurdish regions ruled by Turkey .U.S. policy toward TurkeyWashington showed its orientation toward Erdogan last March when President Barack Obama succeeded in pushing Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu to publicly apologize to Erdogan for the Israeli murder of Turkish citizens on a ship, the Mavi Marmara, bringing relief supplies to Palestinian Gaza three years ago. It indicated Washington’s reliance on the Turkish government to carry on the offensive against Syria.Washington had a cautious public response to the latest events, expressing sympathy with the demonstrators against repression but contining support of the Turkish government. A June 3 AP story reported, “Presidential spokesman Jay Carney called them ordinary citizens exercising their rights to free expression.“But Carney also said that all democracies have to work through issues, adding that Washington is concerned about Turkey’s response to protesters but expects the U.S. ally to work through the issue while respecting its citizens’ rights.”U.S. imperialism has no real interests in defending the rights of anti-government demonstrators, either in Taksim Square or in Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan. Thus, this statement indicates the U.S. government is uncertain where the Turkish demonstrations are headed.There is no doubt the U.S. would intervene however it could to prevent the Turkish working class from gaining the leadership of a mass popular uprising in its NATO ally and client state. Washington’s closest collaborators inside Turkey are with the Turkish armed forces, which seized power in the country with a coup in 1980 and which has continued to wield enormous influence behind the political scene.There have been demonstrations all around the world in solidarity with the Turkish demonstrations in Taksim Square, mostly by the Turkish immigrant communities. Some of the largest have been in Germany.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Iowans honor the fallen on Workers’ Memorial Day

first_imgIowans paid tribute to fallen workers during the week of Workers’ Memorial Day, an international day of remembrance observed on April 28.For 30 years Workers’ Memorial Day has not just been a day of mourning, but a call to action in the fight for workers’ safety. As vital protections are being stripped away by the Trump administration, this call is as urgent as ever.On April 25, the AFL-CIO released the 2019 edition of their annual report, “Death on the Job: The Toll of Neglect,” which details the condition of workers’ safety (or lack thereof) in the U.S.According to the Executive Summary, “Nearly 50 years after the passage of the nation’s job safety laws, the toll of workplace injury, illness and death remains too high, and too many workers remain at serious risk. There is much more work to be done.”The report stated that 5,147 workers were killed on the job and more than 95,000 died from occupational diseases in 2017. That means for each day of the year, approximately 275 workers died due to dangerous workplace conditions.Iowa was the “14th most dangerous state for workers” and was ranked number 36 in workplace deaths, based on data provided by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.In 2018, 26 Iowa workers aged 22 to 65 lost their lives. They died from falls, electrocution, collapsing trenches, being pinned under equipment and struck by machinery, industrial and construction accidents, fire and other causes.Iowa Center for Agricultural Safety and Health Director Brandi Janssen, Ph.D., told Eastern Iowa News outlet KCRG-TV9 on April 26, “Nearly every occupational fatality is preventable.“You have to take the time, you have to plan for it. Every industry is responsible, they’re responsible for their workers. And none of these deaths that we’re talking about today should have ever happened.”From April 26 to 29, Workers’ Memorial Day events were hosted in Iowa cities: Bettendorf, Cedar Rapids, Clinton, Council Bluffs, Des Moines, Dubuque, Iowa City, Keokuk, Sioux City and Waterloo.Gov. Kim Reynolds attended the ceremony outside the Iowa State House in Des Moines on April 29. Reynolds’ appearance can be viewed as a cynical publicity stunt, considering she and her GOP colleagues are in lockstep with the Trump administration’s anti-worker agenda.Reynolds, her predecessor Terry Branstad and GOP legislators have cut taxes for the rich, eviscerated bargaining rights for public union workers, frozen the minimum wage at $7.25 an hour and recently weakened worker’s compensation. They are not on labor’s side, but on the side of the exploiters.Among the findings in the AFL-CIO report, nearly 3.5 million workers across all industries had work-related injuries and illnesses reported nationwide by employers in 2017. However, many cases are underreported, with the real estimate being closer to 7 million to 10.5 million.Job fatalities decreased slightly in 2017 compared to the previous year, from 3.6 per 100,000 workers to 3.5 per 100,000. Regardless, any injury or loss of life that could have been prevented — and wasn’t — is unacceptable.The Iowa Federation of Labor AFL-CIO, in their newsletter, Iowa Labor News, wrote, “We will stand united against the ongoing attacks on workers’ rights and protections and demand that elected officials put workers’ well-being above corporate interests.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Maghaniryo L’Katé, the director of Kasindi-based Radio Télévision Graben, was threatened after reporting alleged customs fraud at the nearby border involving a DRC regular army unit headed by Captain Fredy Kangela. Maghaniryo L’Katé was threatened by telephone on 21 March. And he was threatened again the next day when he responded to a summons to go to the captain’s office, although he took the precaution of bringing witnesses with him. An officer in the captain’s office threatened him with reprisals if he broadcast any further information about the military. “I will kill you like they did with Norbert Zongo,” he said, in the presence of about ten people. He was referring to a journalist who was killed in Burkina Faso in 1998 while investigating the death of the driver of François Compaoré, the then president’s brother. “This kind of abuse of authority by military personnel is totally unacceptable,” RSF said. “We remind the Congolese authorities that they are responsible for protecting journalists. We call for a thorough investigation into this case, which constitutes a grave violation of freedom of information.” Freedom of information has declined of late in the DRC, as evidenced by the closure of three broadcast media outlets in Lubumbashi since the start of the year and the news blackout imposed on radio stations in Nord-Kivu’s Rutshuru Territory two weeks ago. A journalists arrested in Nord-Kivu on 5 March is still being held and has yet to be taken before a judge. The DRC is ranked 150th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2015 World Press Freedom Index.

FPSO Liza Unity undocks and starts integration phase

first_imgThe Fast4Ward Multi-Purpose Floater (MPF) hull has now moved to the integration quayside in Keppel TUAS FPSO Liza Unity undocks and starts integration phase. (Credit: SBM Offshore.) Progress picked up pace when the yards in Singapore re-opened earlier this year. The mooring and riser system integration, as well as other work scope, were completed in dry dock at Keppel FELS. The Fast4Ward Multi-Purpose Floater (MPF) hull has now moved to the integration quayside in Keppel TUAS, where the topsides integration phase started with the progressive lifting of the topsides modules. This phase will facilitate gradual preparation of the FPSO for the start of the onshore commissioning activities, leading up to the final quayside departure.Both Keppel and Dyna-Mac shipyards are fabricating the topsides modules for the Liza Unity FPSO. This FPSO represents SBM Offshore’s first Fast4Ward design, benefitting from standardization of the project`s execution plan and using a fully completed and commissioned MPF hull, which sets the benchmark for future FPSO projects.This latest milestone is in line with the Liza Phase 2 project schedule, which targets departure of the FPSO to its final offshore location in Guyana next year, with start-up in 2022. It represents another key step forward on the path to delivering SBM Offshore’s first Fast4Ward FPSO to our client ExxonMobil. Source: Company Press Releaselast_img
