Place2Be will use the funds raised to provide children in 180 schools across London with access to mental health and emotional support, OnSide Youth Zones will create five centres in areas of deprivation, providing access to a safe space and programme of activities ranging from sport and music to mentoring, and Samaritans’ new initiative Wellbeing in the City will use the funds raised for its online platform, giving employees the skills to manage wellbeing in the workplace.Charles Bowman, Lord Mayor of the City of London, said:“There is really valuable work being done by City firms, benefitting society through business volunteering, fundraising events and philanthropic work.

Haiti: Mass protests demand president resign, U.S. butt out

first_imgAngry Haitians flooded the streets of Port-au-Prince Oct. 4, coming from many of its neighborhoods, such as Nazon, Solino, Bel-Air, Fort National and Delmas, to converge at the U.N. logistics base in Clercine near the airport. According to reports in the Haitian press, the action included people in wheelchairs.What angered the crowd in particular was the support that the Core Group — ambassadors of the U.S., France, Germany, Canada, Spain, the EU and some big international organizations — was giving to President Jovenel Moïse and his gang, known as the Party of Bald Headed Haitians (PTKH). The Core Group wants at least a truce or a dialogue between the PTKH and the militants in the streets — some period of calm.Protesters in Haiti demanding ouster of U.S.-backed government hold their flag in defiance of armed repressionThe militants are hostile to the Core Group’s call for a truce. One of them told AlterPresse, an online Haitian news source, “Today we are waging a battle for the liberation and well-being of the Haitian people.” Another demonstrator explained the U.S., France and Canada are acting like “gangsters by condoning the corruption and violence that this government carries out.” (Oct. 4)In the past 10 years, the government of Haiti has brought in about $4 billion by selling Venezuelan oil, which it purchased at a substantial discount through a program called PetroCaribe. This money was supposed to be spent for the economic development of Haiti, but it wasn’t. The question “Kot Kòb Petwo Karibe a?” (“Where is the Petrocaribe money?”) is one of the major issues the protests raise.What makes the issue of “corruption” in Haiti so explosively compelling is that its people are so poor. Forty percent of Haitians depend on agriculture for their livelihood, but farming is vulnerable to natural disasters like droughts, floods and hurricanes. Three-quarters of the population lives on $2 a day or less. Some 2.6 million Haitians, according to a U.N. estimate, are “food insecure” — they regularly go hungry. Recent food shortages in Haiti have caused acute malnutrition among more than 5,000 children under the age of five.Currently there is a scarcity of fuel, as Venezuela can no longer export oil to Haiti at low prices. Besides, the U.S. boycott imposed on Venezuela makes it impossible for Haiti to pay Venezuela. Since the Haitian government can no longer pay its bills, food distribution by the U.N. and other relief groups is more difficult. It has also significantly increased the inflation raging in Haiti.The huge turnout on Oct. 4, which shut down much of Port-au-Prince, was the third Friday when massive, countrywide demonstrations “locked” down the country. Most businesses and factories in Port-au-Prince closed. Major demonstrations took place in most of the large Haitian cities: Cap-Haïtien in the north, Gonaïves and Saint-Marc on the central Haitian coast, Mirebalais in the central plateau, Miragoane, Jacmel and Jeremie in southern Haiti.In Cap-Haïtien, where demonstrations have been massive, the cops fired directly at people, and a 65-year-old woman was killed. According to some civil rights groups in Haiti, at least 17 people have been killed and 187 injured by police actions, since protests intensified in the middle of September. (Miami Herald, Oct. 3)Speaker Pelosi’s visit to MiamiBefore the protests in Haiti heated up, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was invited to speak at the Father Gerard Jean-Juste Community Center in North Miami-Dade on the many issues that affect the Haitian community in south Florida.But the Miami Herald also reported that the anger of the Haitians at the meeting gave her a different message to take back to the Democratic Party in Washington: The U.S. must stop meddling in Haiti’s internal affairs and Moïse must go.Gepsie Metellus, the executive director of Sant La Haitian Neighborhood Center, put it this way: The U.S. ambassador in Haiti, Michele Sison, was acting like a commander in chief in Haiti and a “cheerleader” for Moïse. She was ignoring the massive protests.Marleine Bastien, executive director of Fanm Ayisyen Nan Miyami (Haitian Women in Miami), said, “Why is the world so silent about what’s going on in Haiti? Why is the world silent about the massacres? The Haitian people are suffering. The Haitian people are asking for our support. The Haitian people are dying.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Frank has had a varied life – from the high of running a highly successful tailoring firm in Limerick serving the great and the good from the world of show business to devastation in his personal life. He found God and set about bringing the message to others through his distinctive hoarding display. He is sometimes derided and mocked but he is also held in great affection. In this programme, we will find out why he has given up a huge portion of his life to spread his message of God, what he hopes to achieve as a result of this dedication and of course, the questions that he’s most asked; where does he get all his tickets? Frank has a myriad of stories to tell regarding the people of Ireland and how they react to him.  He has been verbally abused, his sign stolen, he has been offered money in exchange for his sign, and he has also been the focus of many tourist photographs in his role as a minor celebrity.This is the story of Frank Hogan, one of Ireland’s most televised figures – he’s the man standing behind the goal at most big sports events, holding a big yellow board.  In sunshine and in rain, he stands proud with his sign exhorting us to read the Gospel. He is an institution but this moving profile tells the human story behind the legend. Email Print WhatsApplast_img read more

Share Save Retirees and Household Debt About Author: Seth Welborn Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: debt retirement Sales debt retirement Sales 2019-08-30 Seth Welborn Household debt among retired people has increased in recent years, according to data from Next Avenue. Around 60% of 65+ households carried debt in 2016, up markedly from about 42% in 1992. Credit card debt and student loans have increased as well.One of the most stressful debt type for older Americans is second mortgages. However, dollar for dollar, reverse mortgages are less stressful than regular mortgages.“Debt-related stress is a growing concern, given the growing amount of debt held by older adults as they enter retirement,” wrote the authors of Debt Stress and Mortgage Borrowing in Older Age: Implications for Economic Security in Retirement, a paper just presented at the Retirement and Disability Research Consortium, in Washington, D.C.Despite the increased risk of debt among older Americans, homebuilders are feeling positive about this segment of the market. Builder confidence in the single-family 55+ housing market remained solid in the second quarter with a reading of 71, edging down one point from the previous quarter due to softness in traffic of prospective buyers, according to the National Association of Home Builders’ (NAHB) 55+ Housing Market Index (HMI) released earlier this month.For the three index components of the 55+ single-family HMI, present sales remained even at 76, expected sales for the next six months increased one point to 78 and traffic of prospective buyers fell five points to 56.“Although the single-family HMI fell slightly, builder sentiment still remains strong for this segment of the market,” said Karen Schroeder, chair of NAHB’s 55+ Housing Industry Council and vice president of Mayberry Homes in East Lansing, Mich. “In fact, the reading of 71 is just one point off from the all-time high of 72 from the previous quarter.

You should not grant him any liberty.” Rohatgi said.”Mr Rohatgi we cannot stop him for pursuing his remedies.” – the Bench responded.The petitioner Mohit Dhawan is a dentist from Chandigarh and Mr Rakesh Asthana is a high profile bureaucrat who is presently serving as the Director General of BSF along with additional charge of being the Director General of Narcotics Control Bureau and has formerly served as the Special Director of CBI.Dhawan’s plea has alleged that while serving as Special Director of CBI, Asthana hijacked the entire criminal justice system in connivance with other police officers of Chandigarh and conspired to obtain undue advantage, for himself and his close family friends, thereby performing his public duty improperly and dishonestly. The petitioner has contended that Asthana falsely and illegally implicated and intimidated the petitioner by abusing his official position through corrupt means and corrupt activities and attempting to extort money from him through police officers by conniving with them. He therefore exercised his personal influence in contravention of various provision of Prevention of Corruption Act, particularly Section 7 & 7A of the Prevention of Corruption Act. According to the petitioner, Asthana’s act was a favour to the couple Gertrude D’Souza and her spouse Bryan D’Souza, with who he has enjoyed proximate relations since years. The plea has further alleged that this is a classic case of a public servant who can, by manifestly abusing his official position, implicate and translate a common man into a criminal by betraying the entire criminal justice system and constitutional obligations conferred on him. Rakesh Asthana has absolutely demolished, destroyed and devastated, for his personal venom and vengeance, the name, repute, stature, esteem, eminence, honour, reputation and image of the petitioner dentist and also has caused a shattering storm in the peaceful and professional life of the petitioner dentist. The petitioner has submitted that a complaint to this effect was made before the Central Vigilance Commissioner and Central Bureau of Investigation on 18th September 2019, 27th July 2020 and 17th August 2020 but the said authorities did not initiate any action or adjudication or prosecution against Asthana in consequence of the said complaints. The plea has sought the Court’s intervention alleging that Asthna is enormously powerful and highly connected and has become totally immune. It has urged the Court that the entire matter must be directed to be inquired and investigated and Asthana be prosecuted in accordance to law since he is an alleged criminal in uniform and the kingpin who runs the gang of extortionists by intimidating and implicating the innocents including the petitioner. The Punjab and Haryana High Court had in November 2020 dismissed a petition filed by the present petitioner Mohit Dhawan against Rakesh Asthana and former Chandigarh DGP Tajinder Luthra in the case for filing a fake FIR against him and seeking transfer of a probe into a cheating case registered against him to outside the Chandigarh Police’s jurisdiction or any other agency. The petitioner, Dhawan was booked in a cheating case back in 2018 where a complaint was filed by Gertrude D’Souza, a US citizen, who had got a dental implant procedure done at his clinic in 2017. Another cheating case was filed against him in September 2020 by another woman , Enid Nayabundi, from Nairobi, Kenya. Dhawan had alleged before the High Court that he was a victim of malice, vendetta and extortion, by Asthana, who was known to D’Souza and he had also instigated to lodge another complaint against him. According to him, Gertrude had contacted him for treatment through e-mail and after the surgery, she did not pay the fees and threatened him that she was close to Rakesh Asthana and asking for money would cost him his life. He had also alleged that after the woman returned back to the United States he was constantly threatened by the Chandigarh Police for the return of paid fee, and once the police also took him to the DGP’s office and demanded Rs 50 lakh for the settlement of dispute. The Punjab and Haryana High Court had observed that the petitioner’s assertions that there was a close proximity of former CBI special director with D’Souza were mere assumptions and not substantiated by any material on record. The Court observed that merely because the police official is a Facebook friend of the complainant, it cannot be presumed that he shall favour him in an illegal manner.”If a person appears in the friend list of a Facebook page of any public servant, it cannot be assumed that an official shall favour such a person in an illegal manner and maneuver investigation of a crime…. Sending of complaints by way of emails to the officials on their personal email IDs or having them as friends on social media do not give rise to any presumption of mala fide.”, Justice Sant Prakash of the Punjab and Haryana High Court had observed. The High Court had added that the high ranking police officer who had never remained posted in Chandigarh and had only graduated with the husband of complainant from same university/college in the year 1982 would not necessarily lead to any inference that he was instrumental in getting the investigation conducted in a biased manner.
