Donors would retain control over the capital, and could reclaim it if they wished, during their lifetime.The second reform would be the creation of a new type of charity, the ‘Personal Charitable Trust’. These would enjoy the benefits of “a light touch regulation” free of many of the onerous reporting burdens imposed on larger charities. They would also offer donors the option of anonymity.Professor Palmer believes that, if implemented, these reforms could unlock perhaps 10% of the £740 billion held by the 820,000 Britons with a net wealth of more than £500,000.Professor Palmer has been a Member of the Charity Commission SORP committee, a research adviser to the Charity Commission and an independent consultant on charities to UBS Wealth Management.The report can be downloaded at no charge from:www.cps.org.uk/cps_catalog/a%20step%20change%20in%20uk%20philanthropy%20-%20version5.pdf Tagged with: Finance Giving/Philanthropy Law / policy Two reforms could unlock £74bn for charity from reasonably well-off 22 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 11 January 2010 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Jersey City, N.J., April 24 — The community group NJ Action 21 held a meeting today in Jersey City to remember and learn from the revolutionary events that took place in the Dominican Republic in April 1965. Members of the Dominican community, Anakbayan NJ, the Jersey City Peace Movement and Veterans For Peace took part.Dominican people mobilize to resist U.S. invasion and occupation.Organizers showed a 90-minute documentary produced in the Dominican Republic, “La Trinchera del Honor” (“The Trench of Honor”). After that, the audience held a discussion that included eyewitnesses of the April 1965 events.In 1965 a group of anti-imperialist military officers in the Dominican Republic’s Armed Forces, headed by Col. Francisco Alberto Caamaño Deño, led a broad movement of workers, peasants, youth and progressives to take state power. On April 24, they made their move by seizing a major radio station, distributing weapons to civilian supporters and arresting the pro-U.S. Dominican president the following day.The U.S. responded with Operation Power Pack: an invasion and occupation of the Dominican Republic by over 40,000 ground, air and navy personnel, including the 82nd Airborne Division and the 4th Marine Expeditionary Brigade. Thousands of Dominican civilians were killed. and the Dominican revolution suffered a setback. The U.S. occupation of the Dominican Republic did not end until May 1966.The meeting in Jersey City was no simple exercise in revolutionary nostalgia. Rather, it was a lesson for today about the necessity for all struggles to fight U.S. imperialism and to understand how it operates. Revolutionary enthusiasm was definitely boosted for those at the meeting who witnessed on the screen the historic revolutionary mobilization of the Dominican people during April 1965.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
The callous, white-supremacist response of Trump to the plight of tens of thousands of Bahamians was recently recognized by one of today’s most high-profile athletes. Klay Thompson is considered one of the greatest shooters in the history of the National Basketball Association and is a three-time NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors. Thompson’s father, Mychal, a two-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, migrated from his native Bahamas to the U.S. in the late 1970s. Klay Thompson wrote the following on his Instagram thread Sept. 13 regarding Trump’s racist response to the total devastation that Hurricane Dorian caused in the islands: “[S]hame on our current administration for not welcoming our Bahamian neighbors in their greatest time of need. I’ve been so lucky to visit my family in Nassau since childhood, and in those times I’ve seen countless Americans use the Bahamian islands as their playground for letting loose and vacationing. And now we turn our back on the people who welcomed us with open arms, when they’ve lost everything?! There’s no excuse for this … and if you have one you’re a real piece of shit.”Thompson is referring to Trump’s public labeling of Bahamians as criminals and his declaration that no U.S. borders will be opened to these islanders who have lost their homes, loved ones and livelihoods. Even before the hurricane, the vast majority of Bahamians, a large number of them Haitian migrants, lived below the poverty line. Out of a total population of over 403,000 people, 70,000 Bahamians have lost everything due to the Category 5 storm, another of an increasing number of climate catastrophes. (CNN, Sept. 12) The official death toll is 50, but it’s expected to rise significantly, since at least 1,300 people are still missing. The cost of damage to tourist-industry-dominated Bahamas is an estimated $7 billion. The people of the Bahamas deserve reparations not only for what they are going through now, but for decades of super-exploitation of their labor and resources. Over the past year alone, the Bahamian tourist industry raked in revenues of $5.7 billion, half of the gross domestic product of the Bahamas. (Reuters, Sept. 15) It is long overdue for corporate investors, made rich off of this suffering, to pay off this debt. As for the racist U.S. administration: Open the borders now!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Therefore, it proceeded to grant the bail. While considering the petition filed by the State challenging order, Justice R. Narayana Pisharadi noted that as per Section 37(1)(b)(ii) of the Act, if the Public Prosecutor opposes the application, two conditions have to be satisfied for enlarging the accused on bail. “The first one is that the Court shall be satisfied that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the accused is not guilty of the offence alleged against him. The second one is that the Court shall be satisfied that there are reasonable grounds for believing that the accused is not likely to commit any offence while on bail. Only on satisfaction of these twin conditions, the Court has the power to enlarge the accused on bail.”The court said that these restrictions in granting bail to a person accused of the offences specified therein would apply to an application for granting anticipatory bail also and if either of these two conditions is not satisfied, the bar operates and the accused cannot be released on bail. “These two conditions are cumulative and not alternative. If either of these two conditions is not satisfied, the bar operates and the accused cannot be released on bail.”, the judge added. The Court further said: The satisfaction contemplated, regarding the accused being not guilty, has to be based on “reasonable grounds”. The expression ‘reasonable grounds’ means something more than prima facie grounds. It connotes substantial probable causes for believing that the accused is not guilty of the offence he is charged with. The reasonable belief contemplated in turn points to existence of such facts and circumstances as are sufficient in themselves to justify satisfaction that the accused is not guilty of the alleged offence. Thus, recording of satisfaction on both aspects, as noted above, is sine qua non for granting bail to a person who is accused of the offences specified under clause (b) of sub-section (1) of Section 37 of the Act. However, while considering an application for bail with reference to Section 37 of the Act, the Court is not called upon to record a finding of ‘not guilty’. At this stage, it is neither necessary nor desirable to weigh the materials meticulously to arrive at a positive finding as to whether or not the accused has committed the offence alleged against him. What is to be seen is whether there is reasonable ground for believing that the accused is not guilty of the offence he is charged with and further that he is not likely to commit an offence under the Act while on bail. The satisfaction of the Court about the existence of the said twin conditions is for a limited purpose and is confined to the question of releasing the accused on bail.Taking note of the impugned order of the Sessions Court, the court observed that it has not adverted to the twin conditions mentioned under Section 37(1)(b) of the Act and that it has not recorded any satisfaction with regard to those conditions. It is also not possible to infer from the impugned order that the court was satisfied with regard to those conditions, the judge said. Thus, the order was set aside and the Court was directed to consider afresh the application for anticipatory bail filed by the accused.Case name: State of Kerala vs. Mohammed RiyasCase no.:Crl.MC.No.2707 OF 2020(G)Coram: Justice R.

turk_stock_photographer/iStockBy IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A hacker allegedly took control over a Florida water treatment facility’s computer and attempted to tamper with the water supply, investigators said.Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri said at a news conference Monday that an “awful intrusion” into the computer system at Oldsmar’s water treatment plant took place Friday afternoon.The computer system, which had remote access capabilities, controls the chemicals and other operations, and a plant manager noticed that someone was raising the levels of sodium hydroxide from about 100 parts per million to 11,100 parts per million, Gualtieri said.Sodium hydroxide, aka lye, is the main ingredient in liquid drain cleaners and is used to control water acidity and remove metals from drinking water, according to the sheriff.The plant manager who noticed the three to five-minute hack acted quickly to prevent serious damage to the water, Gualtieri said.“The intruder exited the system, and the plant operator immediately reduced the level back to the appropriate amount of 100,” he said at the news conference. “Because the operator noted the increase and lowered it right away, at no time was there a significant adverse effect on the water being treated.”The sheriff added that the public was never in danger, because it would have taken 24 to 36 hours for the tainted water to hit the system if the plant manager didn’t act.The police don’t have any suspects, and the investigation is ongoing.U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio tweeted that he contacted the FBI to assist with the investigation.“This should be treated as a matter of national security,” he tweeted.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
