Beyonces BeyGOOD Campaign Raises £85000 For Princes Trust

first_imgBeyoncé’s global campaign #BeyGOOD has raised more than £85,000 for The Prince’s Trust to help change the lives of disadvantaged young people in the UK.The superstar’s #BeyGOOD campaign, which encourages people to be kind, be charitable and #BeyGOOD to each other and their communities, raised vital funds for The Prince’s Trust during the UK leg of her recent Mrs Carter Show World Tour 2014.Martina Milburn, Chief Executive of The Prince’s Trust, said: “Thanks to Beyoncé and the #BeyGOOD campaign, disadvantaged young people across the UK will have the chance of a better future, despite facing challenges such as poverty, homelessness and mental health issues. We cannot thank both Beyoncé and all those who donated enough for their generous support.”Throughout the tour fans were encouraged to text their donation, donate online or in-venue to the youth charity to help disadvantaged young people across the UK into jobs at a time when almost one in five are struggling to find work. Everyone who donated was given a chance to be randomly selected for a seat upgrade to an exclusive VIP area near the front of the stage.To join Beyoncé in support of The Prince’s Trust, go to: www.princes-trust.org.uk/beygood where donations can still be made online or text donate £3 by texting BEYGOOD to 70660.Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, The Prince’s Trust helps change young lives. It supports 13 to 30 year-olds who are unemployed and those struggling at school and at risk of exclusion.Many of the young people helped by The Prince’s Trust are in or leaving care, facing issues such as homelessness or mental health problems, or they have been in trouble with the law.last_img read more

International Community Rallies To Protect Monkey Species

first_imgFor the first time in 30 years, Parties to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) will discuss increasing the level of protection for a monkey species.Barbary macaques will take centre stage in Johannesburg, alongside emblematic fauna such as elephants, lions, rhinos and sharks.The CITES Meeting of the Conference of the Parties (CoP17), which is currently taking place in South Africa, has the power to change the fate of Barbary macaques and stop their race towards extinction. In an almost unprecedented move, all range States and the main consumer countries providing the market for these animals have rallied together behind a joint Morocco-EU proposal to transfer the species to Appendix I of the Convention, which will afford them the highest level of international protection from trade and help enhance enforcement measures against trafficking in this species. The proposal has also received overwhelming support from the global animal welfare and conservation community.The Barbary macaque (Macaca sylvanus) is the only African primate species north of the Sahara, the only macaque species in Africa and the only non-human primate living in the wild in Europe (Gibraltar). In the last 30 years, the populations of this unique primate in Morocco and Algeria have dwindled from approximately 23,000 to the latest estimates of 6,500 – 9,100. The largest wild subpopulation, which inhabits the mixed cedar forests of the Middle Atlas Mountains in Morocco, has been decimated: only 5,000 remain, a 65% decrease in just three decades.A significant number of Barbary macaques, mostly infants, are illegally captured from the wild and traded every year, mainly to feed the European exotic pet trade and to be used as tourist photo props. The protection granted to the species both in Morocco and Algeria, its listing on Appendix II of CITES and an EU import ban have done little to help curb poaching and trafficking in these intelligent and sensitive endangered primates. This criminal activity is increasingly in the hands of organised international networks. Barbary macaques remain the most frequently seized CITES-listed live mammal in the EU.Animal Defenders International (ADI) President Jan Creamer says: “The illegal trade is pushing Barbary macaques to the brink and action must be taken before it is too late. Like so many wild animals, these little monkeys are paying the price for unscrupulous traders bartering with their lives.” It is estimated that approximately 3,000 Barbary macaques could be currently being kept as pets in Europe.Musician Moby said: “I refuse to stand by and do nothing as these endangered monkeys are snatched from the wild and their families for photo props and the pet trade. Barbary macaques need our urgent help and I hope governments will join ADI and ‘back the macaque’ and grant them the greater protection they need”.Gerben Jan Gerbrandy, Member of the European Parliament for D66 and Head of the European Parliament Delegation to CoP17, agrees on the importance of this moment: “The adoption of the joint proposal from the EU and Morocco would be a key next step in protecting a species for which the EU is unfortunately a key destination market. Now we have to make sure that any agreement is properly and coherently enforced to the fullest effect. That is where the real difference will be made.”North Africa is the gateway to Europe for other illegal wildlife products, including live specimens such as endangered tortoises. Tackling Barbary macaque trafficking is expected to help with protection of other endangered species, some of which are also on the agenda at CoP17.“This truly unique and endangered primate species needs all the protection we can provide as international community. The highest possible protection from CITES will strengthen conservation efforts underway to help the Barbary macaque survive and thrive. It makes total sense to support the range states, Morocco and Algeria, in this goal,” adds Rikkert Reijnen of the International Fund For Animal Welfare (IFAW).Highly intelligent, emotional and sensitive, Barbary macaques live up to 22 years of age, in social groups comprising as many as 80 individuals, with males playing a primary role in caring for their young. They prefer high altitude cedar forests, but can also be found in oak forests, coastal scrub, and rocky slopes, feeding on fruits, tree leaves, and plants.
Having campaigned for over 20 years to educate the public about the use of primates for entertainment, research, and as pets, exposing the huge numbers of animals taken from the wild each year and the suffering of the animals during captivity and transport, the plight of the Barbary macaque is a cause close to the heart of Animal Defenders International (ADI).Last year, ADI rescued more than 30 illegally traded monkeys in Peru during an 18-month mission against wildlife trafficking and to enforce a ban on wild animals in circuses. Over 100 animals were saved during the operation. Having nursed the monkeys back to health, ADI relocated new family groups from six different primate species to sanctuaries in their native Amazon habitats where ADI continues to fund their care for life.ADI previously rescued two Hamadryas baboons – one from a Bolivian circus and the other from the pet trade in Cyprus. They now live happily together at the Lakeview Monkey Sanctuary in the UK, where ADI funds their care for life, along with three macaques born at the notorious and now closed Israeli monkey breeder Mazor Farm. Born to wild-caught parents, Baloo, Betty and Boo were sold to a European research laboratory and used in neurology experiments. When the monkeys were no longer required, ADI stepped in to save them from being killed.last_img read more

During Skype call Ban voices gratitude for courageous efforts of UN staff

Mr. Ban expressed his solidarity with the staff of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) during the call from Cairo, where he is wrapping up a week-long emergency mission that took him to Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Iraq.“I’m still working very hard to bring an end to this intolerable situation,” Mr. Ban told the staff, who briefed him on their efforts to improve the humanitarian situation in Gaza, as well as the daily challenges they face.“The Palestinian people here are suffering a lot,” one staff member told the Secretary-General, “and they really need help from you and the international community.” UNRWA figures as of 24 July show the number of displaced people in Gaza is now nearly triple the peak number from the 2008-2009 conflict, and exceeds 140,000 people who have sought refuge in 83 schools. “We have filled every available safe shelter,” said one staffer. “We need an end to the hostilities and we need an agreement that addresses the blockade and some of the other security and political problems.”The conversation with staff comes a day after an UNRWA-run school in Beit Hanoun where hundreds of displaced Gazans had taken refuge from the ongoing hostilities came under attack, resulting in multiple deaths and injuries. Today an UNRWA team, which included an international weapons expert, went to the school to survey the scene in the aftermath of the incident. However, the mission had to be cut short and the team was forced to leave the area amid gunfire around the school. “The Relief and Works Agency regrets not being able complete even this initial assessment,” UN spokesperson Farhan Haq told reporters. “It will attempt to visit the site when the situation allows.”The Secretary-General, who is in the region to express solidarity with Israelis and Palestinians and to help them end the current cycle of violence, had deplored yesterday’s attack on the school, saying it underscored the imperative for the killing to stop immediately. On 21 July 2014 in the State of Palestine, children use a candle in lieu of electric lighting at the United Nations school where they and others have taken refuge after fleeing heavy fighting, in the town of Rafah in southern Gaza. By 21 July, the number of children killed in the recent escalation of violence between Israel and Gaza, which began on 8 July, had surpassed 100, representing nearly a quarter of all Palestinian fatalities. Photo: UNICEF/NYHQ2014-0982/El BabaHe also stressed to all sides that they must abide by their international obligations to respect the sanctity of civilian life and the inviolability of UN premises, and to honour their obligations to humanitarian workers.The attack was also condemned by the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), which said the incident is proof that much more needs to be done to protect innocent children. “Using or attacking school premises where children have taken refuge from the violence is unacceptable under any circumstances,” it said in a statement. Gordon Brown, the UN Special Envoy for Global Education, said the attack as well as the death of innocent children will be seen as an “international outrage” which will sadden millions throughout the world. “Schools should never be theatres of war but should be safe havens for boys and girls,” he stated. The World Health Organization (WHO) has called for the creation of a humanitarian corridor to help evacuate the large number of injured people from Gaza. The local WHO office has been discussing this with the Israeli authorities over the last few days, and consultations are also being held with Egyptian authorities.Also, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) said today it is deeply concerned about the impact of the ongoing conflict on women’s health and their access to safe births. Reports of the destruction of hospitals and health facilities are particularly disturbing as some 45,000 pregnant women in Gaza are currently in need of maternity care, the agency said in a news release. About 5,000 of those are among the 140,000 displaced people in temporary shelters throughout Gaza. Due to mounting stress and anxiety, many of these women are likely to face obstetric complications, while access to maternal health services is increasingly limited by the conflict.“It is critical that humanitarian assistance, including medical supplies and equipment, be given safe passage into Gaza to enable us to provide the much-needed assistance to pregnant women,” said UNFPA Executive Director Babatunde Osotimehin. “Pregnant women in particular must be allowed unhindered access to maternal health services to ensure their safety throughout their pregnancy and childbirth.”Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP) said it has reached over 160,000 conflict-affected people in Gaza with emergency food assistance. This is in addition to the 285,000 people WFP reaches regularly with food assistance. The emergency relief included emergency ready-to-eat food for 140,469 displaced people in Gaza who had taken refuge in UNRWA schools and to 10,000 people who were sheltered in public school buildings. It also included emergency electronic food vouchers to 1,318 displaced families – approximately 7,908 people – who are living with host families. Also, some 2,000 patients and staff in hospitals continue to be assisted with emergency food rations. read more

Enda Kennys poetic tribute to Seamus Heaney is quite moving

first_imgTHE DEATH OF Seamus Heaney was a hard blow for his loved ones, and the nation as a whole, earlier this month.Tributes flowed to the Nobel laureate poet from far beyond Irish shores, not least a front-page dedication from the New York Times.Today, further tributes were paid to Heaney in the course of Oireachtas business, with one of the most striking coming – surprisingly or not – from the Taoiseach.He – or his speechwriter – took the time to mould it in a verse-like form with some phrases, especially the opening, calling to mind Heaney’s much loved Mid-Term Break.See what you think of it: “Don’t be afraid”: Seamus Heaney’s final words remembered at poignant goodbye>Seamus Heaney on life, love and poetry> As Friday mornings go, it was busy.Those with young families out early buying the last of the books, lurid lunchboxes.Everybody here making calls, lists, readying offices for the start of the new term.All of us noticing the change in the light.All day, word of his death broke radio schedules, consciousness, the heart of a nation.It was bitter news.There would be no-one now to keep the gap from Joyce’s salt strand to Molly Bloom’s rhododendrons and roses or the Fianna’s Binn Eadair.From that day there would be no man marooned in his own loft, a birch planted 20 years ago,between him and the Irish Sea.Searching, as he put it ‘for that one piece of language that fits exactly’.And as he sought, he found.It’s almost two years now since Seamus, Marie, Michael, Christopher and Catherine Ann gifted us those finds in the Heaney archive.Again, the light was changing.It was Advent, the winter solstice in fact.On that day, we were given a gift, beyond precious metal, incense or ointment or all they signify.A gift from one who could disarm kings, inspire presidents, heal hurts, break hearts, make cures at Troy and burials at Thebes and miracles out of all of us.And out of all that we are and were and could beAt Anahorish or on a tube in LondonOr watching our father digOr peeling potatoes with our motherOr as a new family of Europeans, united through the unstrange word at the Fionn Uisce the Beacons at Bealtaine.For him, it was only all and ever about memory and ‘the state of us’.So much has been written and said about Seamus Heaney in the last 26 days.Oceans, continents of words.In the media there was the particular eloquence of Theo Dorgan, Fintan O’Toole, Andrew O’Hagan.In the church at his requiem mass, we held our breath.The building itself seeming to catch itself and listen as Paul Muldoon shared his impeccable and devastating observations.On heartbreak, general and particular.On the matter of Seamus Heaney’s beauty.On the matter of his being kind and decent.And the greater business of his being the first and eternal champion of his daughter, Catherine Ann.In that moment Paul Muldoon made them Everyfather, Everydaughter.Because every father and daughter present or watching recognised in the story and its telling the power of something that was not just a life gift but a birth right.Inevitably the politics of birthright was the backdrop to so much of Heaney’s work.In the days since his death the lines about ‘hope and history’ have rhymed across the world as private and public figures reacted to the news.But for me, it is what Seamus Heaney says about his translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy, that best sums up his very particular and considered view of the poetic and the political.‘Poetry, let us say, whether it belongs to an old political dispensation oraspires to express a new one, has to be a working model of inclusiveconsciousness.It should not simplify.Its projections and inventionsshould be a match for the complex reality which surrounds it and out ofwhich it is generated.Across the world Seamus Heaney was and is seen not alone as Ireland’s better self but I believe its best-self possible.A self alive to and with what he called “the potency of myth” .In June he spoke to the Paris Revue de Belle-Lettres about “journeys to the underworld” not alone in Dante, but Virgil and Homer.“The potency of the myth” was, he said, “a way of imagining something ongoing”“Christian myth is so contentious and exhausted. I find that there were underworld journeys where the shades of the people you knew are met. I find it deeply, archetypally satisfactory. You don’t need to believe in an ‘afterlife’ but you get some kind of satisfaction… I find Virgil simply beautiful, the various encounters with the lost people.”Today. I am certain he has met them.For they are his people, as they are oursThose links in the human chain.Today, we miss and mourn and celebrate the incomparable Seamus Heaney.We give thanks joyously, graciously, humbly for the gift of him in our national life.He who was our voice, our hearth, our ‘home’.last_img read more

Bowser Administration Discloses New DC Statehood Strategy

first_imgOn July 20, a key advisor of Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser briefed members of the New Columbia Statehood Commission on the administration’s latest strategy to secure statehood for the District of Columbia.Beverly Perry, Bowser’s senior advisor, announced a 10-state campaign that will start in a few weeks to convince Americans to support the full citizenship rights of District residents.Beverly Perry is the senior advisor to D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser. (AFRO File Photo)“We are going to focus on states where we can make inroads,” Perry said. “Those states are Alaska, Washington state, Maine, New Hampshire, Georgia, South Carolina, New Mexico, Arizona and Indiana, and Illinois.”Perry didn’t go into details about the methodology used to select the states or why she felt those states would be amenable to a District statehood message. Perry noted that 86 percent of District voters favored statehood in the November 2016 General Election, utilizing the Tennessee plan that would require congressional approval instead of a constitutional amendment. She said a change in strategy took place when Donald Trump won the presidency and the U.S. Senate remained in Republican hands. “We were counting on a different president and a different Senate,” she said.Perry also said each registered voter in the District would be asked to send a letter to a senator selected by the administration to ask for support of statehood. “We will pair each senator with 4,000 residents,” she said. “Residents will then contact that senator and explain why their support of D.C. statehood is important.”Bowser, D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson (D), District Statehood Sens. Paul Strauss (D) and Michael Brown (D), and Rep. Franklin Garcia (D) were present at the meeting that took place at the John A. Wilson Building in front of an audience of 40 people.The District has a population of 681,000 people—more than Vermont and Wyoming—but lacks voting representation in the U.S. House of Representatives and has no presence in the U.S. Senate. Even so, District residents are required to meet the obligations of citizenship such as paying federal income taxes and serving, if the draft is reinstated, in the country’s wars.District government statistics reveal that the city, as a state-level jurisdiction, sends to the federal government about $37,000 per resident—more than any other state.Perry said the administration is keeping an eye on another jurisdiction that is interested in becoming a state. “Puerto Rico recently voted 97 percent for statehood,” she said. “We cannot let Puerto Rico get ahead of us.”Perry explained that Puerto Rico, a commonwealth where its residents don’t have voting representation in the U.S. Congress but its residents are exempt from paying federal taxes, could become an ally of the District’s push for statehood. “Puerto Rico has 3.5 million people and that has been worked out by some experts to have three Republicans and two Democrats in the Congress,” she said. “That would help us because we could provide the balance with our representative being a Democrat.”Perry compared a possible “Puerto Rico-District” statehood entrance team to Alaska and Hawaii becoming states together in 1959, with Alaska leaning Republican and Hawaii favoring the Democrats. She also noted that the NAACP, currently finishing up its national convention in Baltimore, will consider a resolution of support for District and Puerto Rican statehood.Some opponents of statehood have argued the District is too small to be a state and it would be confusing determining the boundaries of the federal district and the state. Perry said her team has drawn the federal district boundaries that focus on the White House, the U.S. Capitol and U.S. Supreme Court and federal agencies that are on or near Pennsylvania Avenue, N.W.“The federal district would comprise only 2 percent of D.C.’s land mass,” she said. “We will have markers where the federal district begins and the new state would be.”Perry said Norton has amassed 134 supporters for her statehood bill while Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) has 19 supporters for his D.C. statehood bill that was introduced in 2015.Bowser told the group she is seeking the support of District Republicans. “We are reaching [out] to the D.C. Republican Party,” the mayor said. “Republicans oppose D.C. statehood but seem to support statehood for Puerto Rico and that seems inconsistent to me.”Garcia has reached out to Puerto Rico’s resident commissioner for support and “he is waiting for us,” he said.last_img read more

TORONTO — Now that Canadian carriers are following the U.S. and European lead with rock-bottom basic economy fares, travel agents have a lot of explaining to do – explaining about just how restrictive basic economy fares are, to clients who can’t see past all the low prices.Air Canada introduced its Economy Basic fare last month. WestJet’s newest fare class, Econo (Lowest), came days later. Both fares are in line with the trend from the U.S. and Europe, where the rampant success of ultra low-cost carriers has driven legacy carriers including American Airlines, Delta, United, Air France KLM and British Airways to drill down as far as possible with low-priced basic economy fares.Basic economy fares typically don’t allow cancellations, changes or free advance seat selection, leading to consumer outcry about families having to pay to sit together.There’s also, at least in the case of United and American Airlines, the infamous ban on the use of overhead bins.Travel agents are well versed in fare restrictions, but the travelling public is not.“These are definitely targeted toward the (absolutely) no-frills consumer and direct,” says Allison Wallace, SVP, Communication & Engagement for Flight Centre Travel Group.She adds that while FC will sell the basic economy fares if requested, these types of fares “no matter how much you advise a consumer of the restrictions, usually breed the most complaints or dissatisfaction with service. Our strategy will continue to be to provide the options available and recommend the fare best suited to that itinerary.”Brian Robertson, President (Ontario-West), Vision Travel, says basic economy fares “rarely deliver an experience the traveller is expecting. Most come with additional charges for seats, checked bags, meals, changes; they typically earn zero points and are of course non-refundable. They are designed for travellers who fly infrequently and are looking for the very basics… a seat between point A and B.”More news: Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTHe adds: “The airlines discourage frequent travellers from using them and we discourage our frequent travellers from selecting them by monitoring travel compliance and matching traveller needs with corporate travel policies. The additional potential charges related to these fares far outweigh any benefits for frequent travellers.”Even the airlines admit that basic economy fares are not for everyone.“Econo (Lowest) is designed for the value-seeking guest who doesn’t travel often. We want to attract travellers who are looking for low cost fares without any added amenities,” says WestJet. It advises passengers: “Available on select routes and flights, this basic economy fare is for you if your plans are set in stone and you don’t mind where you sit. If you select this option, please understand that this is our most restrictive fare, and it’s non-refundable. You are not able to make changes, so if cancelled more than 24-hours after booking, no funds will be placed in a Travel Bank account. Your seats will be assigned at the time of check in, but, if needed, your seats can be changed at this time, for a fee.”The airlines say basic economy fares are about choice. As WestJet transitions to a global airline, the carrier says it wants its passengers to have more choices when it comes to their travel experience.Basic economy fares are also a defensive move against price pressure from ultra low-cost carriers. Flair Airlines, now operating as a scheduled carrier, has a network of seven cities and more planes on the way, while WestJet’s own Swoop launches June 20. Bob Cummings, when he was Executive VP for Swoop, has said WestJet believes there is room for only one major ultra low-cost carrier in Canada.The lowest fares, and the LCC and ULCC airlines models, are also about ancillaries.Between 60% and 70% of Swoop passengers are expected to pay fees for carry-on and checked baggage, according to the airline’s estimates. Meanwhile WestJet’s fees for services like flight changes, cancellations and checked bags increased 12% in Q3 2017, to $117 million, or $18.64 per passenger. Air Canada says ancillaries are a key focus as the airline grows its network.More news: Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”Ancillaries, or ‘a la carte revenue’ for everything from checked bags to meals, for the world’s airlines has grown 308% in the past seven years, from US$14 billion in 2010 to $57 billion in 2017, according to the latest numbers from IdeaWorksCompany, which through the sponsorship of CarTrawler, reports on ancillary revenue disclosures for the world’s airlines.For North American carriers, ancillary revenue was up 176% from 2010 to 2017, from $5.4 billion in 2010 to $14.8 billion in 2017.The report notes that the industry should be on the lookout for increases in North America and in Europe as transatlantic airlines begin to add fees during 2018 for the first bag checked.The GDSs are onboard with ancillaries, with Amadeus announcing that by the end of 2017, 143 airlines had signed up for its Amadeus Airline Ancillary Services for the indirect channel, including Air Canada. Total travel agency air bookings for Amadeus in 2017 grew 6.3% to 568.4 million.This story originally ran in the March 8th, 2018 issue of Travelweek magazine.

Incentives for foreign filmmakers unfair say local directors

first_imgThe Film Directors Guild of Cyprus on Friday urged the ministry of finance and the Cyprus Investment Promotion Agency (Cipa) to include the local film industry in planned incentives to lure filmmakers from abroad.The association said it welcomed the scheme and would support it but added it should not only aim at attracting international productions, but also reinforce the local industry, which should be upgraded and consulted about promotional plans.“The director’s guild does not play with words, nor does it go public with selective answers. Our views are in-depth and clear,” the announcement said, adding that if the ministry and Cipa intend to improve the plan so that it creates jobs and develops the domestic industry, they are willing to respond positively.The union reiterated that so far they have not been consulted though they have repeatedly requested to be involved in the decision-making.The criteria included in the plan now “are so strict that they exclude most Cypriot producers, if not all”, the guild believes.In particular, the directors call for a modification of the provision that only applications from producers with at least three productions or co-productions over the past five years will be considered.“Due to the fact that the state has not adequately supported our industry over time, nor has it given incentives to support private financing of Cypriot films, the frequency of the production of Cypriot films and their annual production is so small that it is almost impossible for Cypriot producers to meet this criterion.”The union also requests that at least 40 per cent of the staff employed by international filmmakers should be Cypriots or Europeans who permanently reside and work in Cyprus.Finally, they are asking the finance ministry to substantially increase the budget of the Cinema Advisory Committee so that the local film industry can be properly developed.
