The Charity Commission is from today adding more information to the online Register of charities, making it clearer where a charity has been the subject of an inquiry or regulatory case report, or where an interim manager is in place.Where a charity has been the subject of an inquiry report or a regulatory case report, a link from the charity’s entry on the online Register of charities will take you to the relevant document.This link will remain for six months, the length of time that inquiry reports and regulatory case reports already stay on the Commission’s website. Advertisement Howard Lake | 16 June 2009 | News Charity Commission adds information to Register of charities The Register of Charities will also now ‘flag’ when an interim manager has been appointed to a charity. This will indicate whether the appointment is to the exclusion of other trustees.Andrew Hind, Chief Executive of the Charity Commission said: “This is all part of the Commission’s drive to make information about charities more accessible, particularly to the public”.The Commission has found that whilst the majority of visitors are staff or volunteers for charities, one in five visitors are members of the public, and the top reason for visiting is to find information on charities.As at 12 June 2009, there were nine inquiry reports for charities and two regulatory case reports available on the Commission website.www.charitycommission.gov.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis 20 total views, 1 views today 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.

Los llamados medios de comunicación liberales en los Estados Unidos, especialmente el New York Times, el Washington Post y algunas fuentes de noticias de televisión, profesan la independencia. Pero no se atreven a ofender a sus dueños de clase dominante en asuntos internacionales clave.Tomemos, por ejemplo, el “informe” que nos entregan cada día en tres importantes países productores de petróleo: Venezuela, Irán y Arabia Saudita.¿Con qué frecuencia se nos dice que la oposición venezolana (que ahora está en desorden) surgió de la falta de “democracia” y elecciones “fraudulentas” en ese país? Estas frases se repiten una y otra vez, no solo por los medios abiertamente de derecha aquí, sino por aquellos que reclaman objetividad.No mencionan literalmente docenas de elecciones que han tenido lugar en Venezuela desde que el movimiento liderado por Hugo Chávez tomó el poder en 1998, a través de una elección. Tampoco parecen recordar que el ala derecha del ejército venezolano secuestró a Chávez en 2002, pero fue rescatado por una movilización masiva del pueblo venezolano. El gobierno de los Estados Unidos hace un mes, con la ayuda de los medios corporativos, esperaba instigar a los militares contra el presidente Nicolás Maduro, pero esta vez no sucedió.¿Con qué frecuencia se nos dice que el pueblo iraní está gobernado por una teocracia dictatorial? Los medios de comunicación imperialistas no hacen mención de los horrores llevados a cabo por su predecesor, el sangriento Shah, quien fue instalado por un golpe de estado de la CIA en 1953. Una creación de las compañías petroleras de los Estados Unidos, fue derrocado en una revolución popular en 1979. Esa revolución les llevó al actual gobierno.Venezuela e Irán ahora se consideran “enemigos” de los Estados Unidos.Pero no Arabia Saudita.En este momento, el ejército de los Estados Unidos está brindando apoyo logístico y material para el bombardeo genocida de Arabia Saudita en Yemen, un pequeño país que enfrenta la hambruna y el genocidio a manos de esta sangrienta guerra saudí/ EE.UU.Incluso cuando informan sobre esta situación espantosa, ¿los medios de comunicación liberales aquí recuerdan a su audiencia que Arabia Saudita es políticamente una dictadura total de la familia real saudí? ¿Que los 700 príncipes controlan toda la economía y la política del estado? ¿Que no hay elecciones en Arabia Saudita? ¿Y que estos príncipes teocráticos tienen una excelente relación con el gobierno de los Estados Unidos?Eche un vistazo a la entrada de Wikipedia sobre Arabia Saudita y busque una discusión de la familia real. Hay una fotografía tomada en 1985. Haga clic en ella y verá una hermosa foto de Ronald Reagan y Donald Trump mirando mientras Ivana Trump le da la mano al Rey Fahd en la Casa Blanca. Ivana ha sido reemplazada, pero las políticas internacionales reaccionarias dictadas por las grandes empresas de EE.UU. Siguen vigentes.¿Por qué el Times, el Post, NPR y otros no mencionan eso?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — New York Police Department officers are being hailed as heroes after they saved a baby Saturday night out at Coney Island.Michael Pace, 26, and Joseph Doyle, 26, were waiting at a red light when Caroline Ivanov came rushing to their patrol car, banging on it, begging for help, authorities said. Ivanov’s daughter, Chloe, wasn’t breathing.“The baby was blue-ish tint. She wasn’t breathing. A lot of bubbles out of her mouth,” Pace told reporters at a Monday press conference.The officers called for an ambulance but were told it would take eight minutes to arrive. Four blocks away were Lt. Patrick King and Officer Daniel Newman, a certified EMT. They responded immediately.Newman told reporters he jumped in the back of the patrol car with Chloe and her mother, and the officers rushed them to Coney Island Hospital. Newman said he couldn’t feel a pulse. “As we were pulling into the driveway of Coney Island Hospital, I was about to do mouth-to-mouth when the baby coughed up in my face, started to cry a little bit,” Newman told reporters. “I didn’t expect to get the baby back, in the backseat.”The baby was handed off to the nurses, and the color began to return to her face after she began crying, the officer said.The mother appeared relieved but was being cautiously optimistic, the officers said. She contacted Newman and said the baby was doing better, saying that a fever led to a seizure, which limited the girl’s breathing and caused her respiratory arrest. “I felt like I knew him for an eternity,” Ivanov told ABC New York station WABC. “I don’t even know the guy’s name, you know. It’s like this great immense sense of trust that I had put in this stranger, and in the end it really paid off.”“It was a really scary situation,” Doyle said, “but everyone responded really well, especially Officer Newman.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

iStock(NEW YORK) — When Alison Turkos first noticed that her Lyft driver appeared to be going in the wrong direction, she said her first thought was that he might be trying to “scam me out of $20 or $30 dollars.”As he became more aggressive, she realized something more serious might be underway. When the car stopped at a light, she said she tried to open the door to jump out, but she realized the child lock was on. As she tried the door on the other side of the car, she said, “the driver pulled a gun on me and I put my hands up.”“That was when I realized that this was not just someone trying to scam $20 or $30 out of me,” Turkos told ABC News. “It was going to be the worst night of my life.”The driver would eventually bring her from New York to New Jersey, where he held her at gunpoint, raped her and stood by as two other men raped her, Turkos said.On Tuesday, Turkos sued Lyft in federal court in California, where the company is based, for what she believes was their negligence and their “appallingly inadequate” response to the “sexual predator crisis amongst Lyft drivers,” the suit states. Earlier this year, she also sued the New York Police Department saying that they mishandled her case.Lyft did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment on this case. They did issue a statement to other outlets, including The Verge, where a company spokesperson said “What this rider describes is awful, and something no one should have to endure. The unfortunate fact remains that one in six women will face some form of sexual violence in their lives — behavior that’s unacceptable for our society and on our platform. In this case, the driver passed the New York City TLC’s background check and was permitted to drive.”Meghan McCormick, one of Turkos’ attorneys from Levin Simes Abrams LLP, said that they felt the Lyft statement was “absolutely offensive.”“I think Lyft has been on notice since at least 2015 that passengers are being sexually assaulted by Lyft drivers,” McCormick told ABC News.“They were on notice of the problem and they took no meaningful action to address it,” she said.The lawsuit comes as ride share safety is at the forefront of crackdowns in other jurisdictions. On the same day that the suit was filed in California, Oregon’s Portland Department of Transportation confirmed to ABC News that they suspended or revoked the permits for 168 ride-share drivers since 2015, including two Lyft drivers who were convicted felons — one convicted of sexual assault and the other for assault with intent to murder.Last week, Lyft shared a blog post about ways they are expanding their safety efforts, including building the ability to call 911 from within their app and a safety check feature.McCormick and Turkos want more, however.“Ultimately we’re seeking systemic change from Lyft,” McCormick said.The lawsuit, which includes six counts relating to negligence, three relating to employer’s liability, one count of intentional misrepresentation and one of breach of contract, seeks damages and a jury trial. McCormick said that it will be amended to seek declaratory relief in addition to monetary and punitive damages. A petition has been filed to group this along with more than 32 other cases Lyft is facing in the California state court system, McCormick said.“From the beginning, there was nothing but a robotic response from Lyft. They have never held themselves accountable they have never taken responsibility,” Turkos said. “They say that the safety of their customers and riders is their number one responsibility but they charged me $12.81 to be kidnapped raped and trafficked by one of their drivers which to me proves that profit is their number one priority.”Since the alleged attack, which Turkos said took place in October 2017, Turkos has emerged as a fierce critic of how ride-share companies protect their passengers and has shared her story on social media.The criminal investigation has been passed from the NYPD to the FBI, Turkos said, but no arrests have been made.The ordeal, she said, began when she left a bar in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Crown Heights at 2:30 a.m., and called a Lyft to make the short trip to Williamsburg, Brooklyn.She said the FBI has requested that she not reveal specific details where in New Jersey she was taken. But she said that when they arrived, “two other men are there waiting for us.”“I am instructed by the driver who’s holding a gun to take off my clothes… [and] lay down in the back of the car.”She said that over the course of “approximately 20 to 23 minutes,” the three men allegedly sexually assaulted and raped her.“They’re laughing, high-fiving each other, cheering each other on,” Turkos said.Turkos, who was 29 at the time of the alleged assault, said that she had previously been sexually assaulted twice as a teen and “one of the skills I’ve inherited from my past self” is to be able to disassociate from what was going on. The driver then told her to put her clothes back on, she said, and proceeded to take her to her original destination in Williamsburg.Turkos said that she had “very significant memory loss” after the incident, and didn’t remember the kidnapping at gunpoint or the rape the next morning. But it was clear something was wrong.“I remembered almost nothing, but my body was so exhausted and I physically could not lift my head from the pillow. I could not move myself from bed,” she said.She said that she saw on the Lyft app that she was charged $106 for her ride, which was originally slated to cost $12.81. She said she reported the discrepancy to Lyft through the app within 24 hours of the ride, and had a call with the company’s trust and safety department about the ride, but in neither did she mention the alleged kidnapping and sexual assault. She said that the company reimbursed her for the excessive charge but still charged her the original amount of $12.81.According to the lawsuit, Turkos had a rape kit performed and reported the assault to police two days after the alleged attack. The kit later confirmed “evidence of semen from two men on the clothing” she wore the night of her Lyft ride.As part of the investigation, when the NYPD’s Special Victims Unit accompanied her to retrace the route taken that night. It was then that Turkos said “all of my memories came back.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
Inquiry into racism to help council’s drive for equalityOn 9 Sep 2003 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. A report revealing racial discrimination Lambeth Council in Londonhighlights the progressive nature of the local authority, according to thecouncil’s head of diversity. An eight-month independent inquiry into the Lambeth Community Alarms Service(LCAS), which provided a 24-hour alarm monitoring service, found there was a”social cyclone” with “racism in all its forms andmanifestations” being the root cause. However, the inquiry was actually commissioned by Lambeth Council itself andproduced a raft of 27 recommendations, which has enabled the south Londonauthority to focus its drive towards equality and augment itsanti-discrimination processes. Carole Litchmore, head of diversity at Lambeth, said the inquiry has helpedto ensure the council feels light years away from where it was with regards toequality. “Lambeth is like a kitchen,” she said. “LCAS gave us foodpoisoning but now the kitchen is shining and the quality is comingthrough.” The inquiry urged the retraining of managers in equality and diversity, andthe council has already completed the first level of this training for allmiddle managers. “The issue of equality now belongs to managers and not just to specialists,”Litchmore said. The authority is now planning the next level of training, which will usecase studies to give managers examples of best practice, and an ambitiousthree-year project to train all 5,000 council staff in diversity and equality. The council has also created a staff panel designed to look into HRanomalies and discrepancies, and is looking at proposals to develop discussiongroups, which include up to 500 members of staff in talks about theimplementation of the inquiry’s recommendations. By October, the council also aims to have produced a strategy document thatsets out its equality plans for the next three years.

INDIANAPOLIS – Clad in their Dearborn County Jail attire and under guard, four inmates participating in a Jail Chemical Addictions Program (JCAP) made presentations Wednesday to the Indiana Attorney General’s Public Safety Coalition (PSC).The four men, along with two ex-offender graduates of the program, offered raw depictions of addiction along with this startling conclusion: “Getting arrested saved my life!”Attorney General Curtis Hill organized the PSC to focus Indiana law enforcement and other experts on finding constructive solutions to the state’s crime and drug problems. He appointed Decatur County Prosecuting Attorney Nathan Harter to chair the effort.Wednesday’s conference at the Indiana Government Center highlighted chemical addiction programs at the Boone and Dearborn county jails. Targeting inmate populations, Hill said, represents one of the best methods of reaching drug users most in need of services.“Everyone recognizes the need for more treatment facilities,” Hill said, “but it would be unwise to expect addicts to just line up and ask for help. The nature of addiction will not allow such rational behavior.”Incarceration, therefore, plays a vital role in helping addicts recognize their need for intervention, Hill said. On Wednesday, the JCAP participants themselves confirmed they needed the constraints of jail to break their cycles of addiction.Such realities call into question the wisdom of recent trends toward reducing jail time for people arrested in connection with drug use, Hill said.“Efforts to limit jail time for drug users might be well-intended,” Hill said, “but based on what we’ve heard from inmates, one must conclude that the most compassionate course might actually be giving them more jail time.”The point of incarcerating drug users is not to dole out maximum punishment, Hill said, but rather to provide them the best possible opportunity to overcome their addiction.“When we allow drug users easily to bail out without treatment, we do them a disservice,” Hill said. “They typically go right back to the routines and habits that got them in trouble in the first place.”A better course, he said, is to provide addicts prolonged sustainable programming while they are incarcerated followed by a solid after-care plan upon their release.Hill envisions all counties in Indiana having access to the JCAP model – either by operating their own quality programs or participating in regional JCAPs. Working with the Public Safety Coalition, Hill plans to press policymakers statewide to support jail chemical addiction programming as an effective weapon in Indiana’s ongoing battle against substance abuse.If you would like to learn more about the Public Safety Coalition, contact Outreach Coordinator Matt Row at [email protected] FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmail
