This found that relatively few VCOs who could benefit from free professional support seemed to know what services were available or where to find them. It also showed that access to free professional support seemed to depend on location, luck and personal contacts. A separate survey in 2002 asked 102 VCOs if they would find useful a dedicated Web site that listed pro bono services and how to obtain them. Ninety nine per cent said they would.Lord Filkin, Home Office Minister for Race Equality, Voluntary and Community Policy said: “The Professionals4free website and helpline will provide an easy and effective way for people to get the help they need, while providing a route for professionals to get active in their community.”The site is also designed to help professional firms who do not know how and where to announce the professional skills they have to offer. Chris White, UK Director of Communications at the leading Business and Financial advisor firm Grant Thornton, comments: “The professionals4free Web site is a really valuable resource for professionals wanting to offer their skills and expertise since it signposts them to brokers. We deliver our pro bono support through ProHelp and find that using a broker is key to ensuring our services go to where they are needed most.”The professionals4free site has been developed by Business in the Community’s ProHelp programme, TimeBank, NCVO and Business Community Connections, with funding support from the Home Office Active Community Unit.

China to ban journalists who fail Communist Party loyalty test
ChinaNorth KoreaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence Predators Follow the news on Asia – Pacific ChinaNorth KoreaAsia – Pacific Condemning abusesMedia independence Predators September 24, 2019 – Updated on September 25, 2019 China to ban journalists who fail Communist Party loyalty test News News RSF_en Help by sharing this information In rural India, journalists face choice between covering pandemic and survival June 7, 2021 Find out more Last month, the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Propaganda Department informed the media that starting from the end of the year, journalists will have to pass a compulsory loyalty exam towards the Party and President Xi Jinping in order to earn or renew their press credentials. The exam, whose details were revealed on September 18th on WeChat, will be conducted through XueXi QiangGuo (“Study Xi, Powerful Country”), a smartphone app launched in January to disseminate the President’s propaganda.”This grotesque exam is clearly aimed at intimidating journalists and will provide the regime with the perfect excuse to ban the last critical voices in the media,” said Cédric Alviani, head of Reporters Without Borders (RSF) East Asia office, who denounced the exam as “a measure which brings to mind North Korea, where journalists are forced to be members of the Party and only exist to serve the Great Leader’s propaganda.”A pilot test involving 10,000 journalists from 14 state-run media will commence in Beijing in October. The exam consists of five sections including one regarding “Xi Jinping Thoughts” and another dealing with “Marxist Journalism.” Journalists have to score at least 80 out of 120 points in order to pass, and can only retake their exam once.Since taking on the mantle of leadership in 2013, President Xi Jinping has placed both state and private media under closer control and has increased Internet censorship and surveillance to record levels. More than 115 professional and citizen journalists are currently detained in China in life-threatening conditions.China fell this year to the 177th rank out of 180 countries and territories in the RSF World Press Freedom Index, only two places ahead of North Korea. to go further Organisation June 10, 2021 Find out more Pakistani TV anchor censored after denouncing violence against journalists Mongolia : RSF urges presidential candidates to voice support for press freedom Receive email alerts News News Chinese journalists will soon have to pass a loyalty exam towards the Party and President Xi Jinping in order to earn or renew their press credentials.

Tropical Storm Arthur set to bring heavy rain to North Carolina
ABC NewsBy MAX GOLEMBO, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A major storm system is slowly moving east from the Midwest and the South with 10 reported tornadoes in Illinois and in Louisiana Sunday that killed one person in a mobile home in Louisiana. This storm system brought up to a half a foot of rain to parts of Midwest where people in Chicago had to be rescued from their cars due to flooded streets and roadways. Major flooding was also reported in Wisconsin during the day as well. On Monday morning, seven states are under flood watches and warnings from Missouri to Ohio. As this storm system stalls the rest of the week in the Ohio Valley and into the Carolinas, more flooding is expected. An additional 2 to 4 inches of rain is being forecast for the Midwest and more than 4 inches for the Carolinas.Meanwhile, a tropical storm warning has been issued for coastal North Carolina due to Tropical Storm Arthur bringing gusty winds and heavy rain mostly to the Outer Banks. On Monday morning, Arthur is a Tropical Storm with winds of 45 mph and it is forecast to miss North Carolina and not make landfall there. Nevertheless, heavy rain, rough surf and gusty winds will continue for the Outer Banks through the day Monday before Arthur begins to steer away from the United States and back out into the Atlantic.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Half-ton of marijuana valued at over $8M found by dog on routine traffic stop
Indiana State PoliceBy JON HAWORTH, ABC News(LOWELL, Ind.) — More than half a ton of marijuana with a street value upwards of $8 million was discovered by a sharp-nosed police dog during a routine traffic stop in northwest Indiana.The incident occurred at approximately 11:15 a.m. on Tuesday, March 16, when an Indiana State Police trooper stopped a van for a moving violation near the town of Lowell, Indiana, about 50 miles southeast of Chicago, according to a statement released by the Indiana State Police.The officer approached the vehicle with police to speak with the driver — later named as 31-year-old Christopher S. Colburn from McKinleyville, California — which subsequently led to an investigation of the exterior of the vehicle, including a canine sniff, that caused the officer to ask about what was inside the van.“During that search, troopers discovered 38 large boxes and 6 black garbage bags.,” said the Indiana State Police. “The boxes were wrapped in black plastic wrap. Inside the boxes contained a total of 1,264 individually sealed bags, each weighing approximately 1.5 lbs., and contained a green plant material. A field test of the content revealed it to be marijuana.”Authorities said that a “conservative” estimated street value of their discovery is approximately $5.7 to $8.5 million.Colburn was arrested on the spot and taken into custody to the Lake County Jail where he was preliminarily charged with dealing marijuana, a Level 5 felony, and possession of marijuana with a prior conviction, a Level 6 felony.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

£70,000 of funding available from the TDS Charitable Foundation
Organisations that support landlords and tenants have just four weeks left to apply for a share of a £70,000 funding pot from the TDS Charitable Foundation.The TDS Charitable Foundation has this year increased the amount of money available to fund innovative projects that benefit the private rented sector and is urging people to submit their bids before the deadline on Wednesday 10th August.This year, the TDS Charitable Foundation, is also looking to make funding available to commission a feasibility study into establishing a dedicated research centre for the private rented sector in England and Wales.The TDS Charitable Foundation has given out more than £175,000 in grants since it was established by TDS, the UK’s largest insurance backed tenancy deposit scheme, in 2014. As the only not-for-profit scheme in its industry, TDS is committed to raising standards in the private rented sector.Organisations that have successfully applied for funding in the past include Designs on Property Ltd, which was awarded £15,000 to fund an independent report into the typical buy-to-let investor.Industry expert and report author Kate Faulkner said, “Without the funding from the TDS Charitable Foundation we would not have been able to carry out this independent research, which I believe is vital if we are to fully understand the industry in which we work and start challenging the misperceptions surrounding the private rented sector.“I’d never applied for funding before but there was plenty of support available at every stage of the process and I would really encourage anyone who thinks they have a project that meets the objectives of the Foundation to apply.”Prof Martin Partington (left), Chairman of TDS and the TDS Charitable Foundation, said: “Our not-for-profit status enables us to use part of our surplus income to raise standards in the industry we serve by reinvesting in education and training and promoting best practice, and as organisation this is something we are passionate about.”For more information on how to submit a bid for funding before Wednesday 10th August, visit www.tdsfoundation.org.uk.
