The SEC has been under pressure to bolster the integrity of the markets after the 6 May “flash crash” caused stocks to plunge wildly, wiping out $1 trillion in market capital, and then recovered in mere minutes.

The BEAST flying down the wing in Perth

first_imgMonday Jul 21, 2008 The BEAST flying down the wing in Perth One player that provided a glimpse of excitement for disappointed South African fans in Perth on Saturday night was Tendai Mtawarira, affectionately known simply as, The Beast.The Zimbabwean born prop from the Natal Sharks has come on in leaps and bounds since converting from a flank to the front row. He is now a standout performer whenever he wears that black jersey, and more recently, the green and gold of the Springboks.Mtawarira made his Test debut against Wales, and ran in for a nice try against Italythe very next week. Hes rapidly becoming a cult hero at Kings Park and around the world, with crowds bellowing BEEEEEEEASTwhenever he touches the ball or makes a tackle. Its quite a phenomenon, and one that Beast himself has come to enjoy.“It is a bit overwhelming. For me, it is very humbling to hear the crowd chant my name. The guys always tease me about it. But it is awesome, hey. You just hear a hum, like a big hum,” he said.He says hes been called Beast since he was 8 or 9, when he was bigger than all the other kids at his Harare primary school.Late in the game against the Wallabies on the weekend, we saw the Beast take off down the right wing with a run that started close the Springboks tryline and ended after an offload somewhere around the halfway line. It included a handoff, sidestep, shimmy and possibly even a change in direction, and would have made front rowers around the world proud.There was even a hint of a BEEEEEAST from the Perth crowd, made up partly of the South African expats whove all but taken over the Western Australian city.He made another short burst, this time up the left wing just before the final whistle, but was stopped successfully and didnt pull out the sidestep on that occasion.These runs lasted for a matter of seconds, but the impact with fans was huge as we’ve received many an email requesting to see this footage again.

2020/21 Directory of Grant Making Trusts now out

first_img  1,145 total views,  2 views today The latest edition of The Directory of Grant Making Trusts (DGMT), published by Directory of Social Change (DSC), is now out.With information on over £5billion worth of funding available to UK charities, the 2020/21 guide covers over 2,000 of the largest grant-making charities that award grants to UK organisations.The combined giving of all the grant-makers in the new edition totals over £5.699 billion, marking an increase of around £290 million from the previous edition. Mairéad Bailie, lead author of the guide, said:“We know many charities are struggling with increases in demand and pressure on their resources. The additional £290m of funding in this edition of DGMT means even more charities will have the chance to get the funding that they need, to help the people and causes they are working so hard to support.”New to the Directory of Social Change’s DGMT are improvements to the book’s indexing, with additions such as ‘grant-makers by field of interest and type of beneficiary’. In addition, the new ‘grant-makers by type of organisation’ index, helps readers find the types of organisation that grant-makers will fund.It also includes: Advertisement Concise information and contact details for every recordAnnual grant total awarded by each grant-makerExamples of beneficiaries in each listing, for guidance on the types of organisations previously fundedExtensive indexes divided by geographical area, field of interest and beneficiary group, organisation type, and kinds of grant availableEach grant-maker’s description of project types that can or cannot qualify for fundingAmanda Bringans, Director of Fundraising, British Heart Foundation and Chair of Trustees, Institute of Fundraising, commented: “No one wants to spend unnecessary time making or reviewing inappropriate applications and so being able to depend on a resource such as The Directory of Grant Making Trusts is hugely valuable. With those many thousands of grant-making bodies nationwide, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and having the key details of the geographical area, grants awarded and, most importantly, funding interest, priorities and criteria all in one place is incredibly useful to find the grant-marker that can be right for your charity and project.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Melanie May | 9 September 2019 | News 2020/21 Directory of Grant Making Trusts now out  1,146 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis7 Tagged with: Funding grants 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.

Oakland rally: FREE MUMIA ABU-JAMAL

first_imgFormer Black Panther Gerald Smith speaks at rally for Mumia, Aug. 28.Oakland, Calif. — A rally to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal was held Aug. 28 at Oscar Grant Plaza in downtown Oakland, two days before a major court hearing considered Mumia’s case in Philadelphia on Aug. 30. Abu-Jamal is a political activist, journalist and internationally celebrated Black writer imprisoned in Pennsylvania for over 36 years, first on death row and now under a life sentence.The rally brought attention to the fact that evidence shows now, as it always has, that Mumia Abu-Jamal is innocent. The evidence highlighted at the Aug. 30 hearing also exposed the true nature of the “injustice system” as corrupt.That hearing pivoted on the fact that former Philadelphia District Attorney Ronald Castille, who was key in prosecuting and condemning Mumia to death row, went on to sit on the Pennsylvania state Supreme Court and to rule on Mumia’s later legal appeals, without recusing himself for conflict of interest.The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that it is unconstitutional for a judge to decide an appeal in a case where they had previously been involved at a hands-on level as a prosecutor.On Aug. 28, the rally called for the freedom of Mumia Abu-Jamal and all political prisoners. Speakers demanded the release of other prisoners falsely accused and targeted by the racist injustice system, including Leonard Peltier, Mutulu Shakur, Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin (formerly H. Rap Brown) and Kevin Cooper. The rally also called for solidarity with the nationwide prison strike that began Aug. 21 and continues to Sept. 9.In addition to MC Ras Ceylon, speakers at the event included Cat Brooks, co-founder of the Anti Police-Terror Project and Oakland mayoral candidate; Gerald Smith, former Black Panther; Cephus X (“Uncle Bobby”) Johnson, uncle of Oscar Grant; and representatives from various organizations including the Labor Action Committee to Free Mumia Abu-Jamal, Oakland Teachers for Mumia and Workers World Party.Labor unions for MumiaLabor union resolutions and letters of support to “Free Mumia Abu-Jamal” were mentioned at the rally. These included an International Longshore and Warehouse Union resolution representing all 29 West Coast ports, and a letter from the Swedish Dockworkers Union. The latter called for an end to Mumia’s unjust imprisonment as well as an end to the racist oppression within and outside of prison that is carried out by a reign of police and neofascist terror.An excerpt from the San Francisco Labor Council resolution sums up the “legal” crime perpetrated to keep Mumia incarcerated:“Whereas, the Philadelphia District Attorney’s office has obstructed and covered up the evidence of Castille’s personal involvement in Mumia’s case, and stalled and denied the existence of memos and files showing that involvement. … Therefore Be it Resolved, that the San Francisco Labor Council demand full disclosure of all police and prosecutorial files relating to Mumia’s case by the [current] Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office with all deliberate speed, and moreover demand the immediate release of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who has been imprisoned for 36 years for a crime which he did not commit.”Long-standing and militant union support for Mumia was documented in a press release from the Free Mumia Coalition: “The Fraternal Order of Police has unsuccessfully sought Mumia’s execution for decades. In 1999, longshore workers from the ILWU Local 10 shut down the ports and led a rally of twenty-five thousand in San Francisco to stop Mumia’s execution. From prison, Mumia, a former Black Panther, has written nine books and recorded over 3,000 commentaries on KPFA, Prison Radio and other outlets, which inspire and educate millions around the globe who identify with his struggles for justice and equality for all of humanity.”Sponsors of the Aug. 28 rally included Labor Action Committee To Free Mumia Abu-Jamal, Workers World Party, Oakland Teachers for Mumia, Peace and Freedom Party—Alameda County, Socialist Viewpoint, Justice for Palestinians—San Jose, the Oscar Grant Committee, Love Not Blood Campaign, Anti Police-Terror Project, Answer Coalition, Prison Radio, Oakland Teachers for Mumia, Speak Out Now, Freedom Socialist Party, Socialist Organizer, Socialist Action and the Mobilization to Free Mumia.Action alert for Mumia!It is urgent that we act now to bring attention to this injustice and secure freedom for Mumia. Call Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner at 215-686-8000 and tell him that former DA Ron Castille violated Mumia’s constitutional rights and that Krasner must not obstruct Mumia’s legal petition.The power of the people was responsible in 2011 for getting Mumia off death row. By the power of the people we can free Mumia Abu-Jamal and all political prisoners!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
