It will use the donation to help save Scotland’s ancient Caledonian Forest and its rare wildlife.Scotland’s 5p charge on carrier bags in stores aims to reduce plastic bag use. Superdry has gone one step further for the environment by ensuring that its bags are made of easily biodegradable paper rather than plastic.Trees for Life’s Chief Executive Officer Steve Micklewright (left) and Paul Thomas, Superdry’s Energy and Environment Manager, with native tree saplings at Trees for Life’s Dundreggan Conservation Estate.Superdry’s Energy and Environment Manager Paul Thomas visited Trees for Life’s Dundreggan Conservation Estate in Glenmoriston near Loch Ness, to present the donation and to see some of the practical conservation action being carried out.He said:“We are really proud to be supporting Trees for Life’s restoration of the Caledonian Forest, one of the country’s most iconic but endangered habitats. A healthy environment benefits everyone, and it’s inspiring to support this project which is bringing new life to the wild landscapes of the Highlands.”Although only a fraction of the former Caledonian Forest survives, Trees for Life has planted more than one million trees at dozens of locations, and has created 10,000 acres of new forest. It has pledged to establish one million more trees by planting and natural regeneration by 2018.Trees for Life was selected as the beneficiary charity by a staff vote of Superdry staff.How do you get your charity on the list for the next Superdry staff vote? It seems that Superdry is reviewing its charitable activities at the moment, so it is not clear at present. 142 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis12 Advertisement

Also – NASS is conducting a survey of current hog inventories. Bob Bass – NASS National Operations Center Director – says with the most recent crop production report forecasting corn and soybean production at the lowest levels in years – it is as important as ever that farmers, livestock producers, grain dealers, policy makers and others using the statistics receive the best possible estimate.Nearly 73-thousand producers will receive the survey and are asked to respond. Some already have received their surveys and can fill it out online or mail it back to NASS. Those who do not respond will receive a phone call from NASS representatives to help them respond. Bass says that NASS recognizes farmers and ranchers are having a rough summer – but NASS hopes they realize the value of the information to their businesses, communities and industries – therefore taking the time to respond to the surveys.

The AP analysis showed the Trump administration received a record number of FOIA requests in its first eight months, though based on the data it is impossible to determine whether the requested files even exist or if federal employees simply gave up their search. Without access to information requested through FOIA, journalists are less equipped to report on the contents of federal records that are not always publicly known but should be legally accessible through the law. This lack of transparency has been common throughout Trump’s presidency, as he has publicly declined to release records of public interest including his personal tax returns or logs of official visitors to the White House. Within the last year, the federal government spent a record of more than $40 million in legal fees defending their decisions to withhold federal files, though in more than one-in-three cases the government went back on its decision to withhold when challenged. US Air Force releases a memo outlining new restrictions on press access The US Air Force released a memo on March 1 labeled “Public Affair Guidance” that would put restrictions on press access. The memo obtained by Defense News, a global website and magazine, states, “media embeds, media base visits, and interviews are suspended until further notice.” The regulations will limit the Air Force’s interaction with journalists. Public affair officers and commanders will now be required to go through new training on how to avoid exposing sensitive information before interacting with the press. Even human-interest stories must be cleared at the highest command level. Until spokesmen at lower-levels have been certified, all engagement with the press will be suspended. Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson received criticism last year for excluding the American press from briefings and travel abroad, and in the fall the Pentagon cut back on the number of journalists allowed to accompany Defense Secretary James Mattis on trips overseas. News anchor and photographer harassed during a live broadcast An unidentified man harassed ABC 10News reporter Bree Steffen and photographer Michael Dean Gold on March 12 during a live broadcast in San Diego. Steffen tweeted after the incident that the unidentified man tried to tackle her to get on screen. Despite a broken camera, neither Steffen nor Gold sustained injuries. According to ABC 10News, San Diego’s local ABC affiliate, the attacker’s motive remained unclear but was not related to the content of Steffen’s broadcast. Authorities were contacted and are investigating the incident. Last month, a similar incident involving violence against a journalist took place in Belmont, New York, when a mechanic attacked a reporter and cameraman with a baseball bat during an interview. These acts of aggression directed at journalists on the job are congruent with consistently violent rhetoric against the press coming from high levels of the federal government, including from President Trump himself. The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.

May 19, 2021 Find out more News News Headlined “Fanatics raise their ugly head again,” the Daily Star article of 11 February included a photo taken in the Dhaka district of Banglamotor of one of the posters, which called for a revolt within the Bangladeshi army.Speaking in parliament on 18 February, the prime minister announced that “(legal) action will be taken against those who tried to patronise Hizb-ut-Tahrir by publishing its poster.”Her announcement came three days after a lawyer filed a complaint in a Dhaka magistrate’s court against Daily Star editor and publisher Mahfuz Anam, chief news editor Syed Ashfaqul Haque and chief photographer SK Enamul Haq.“We condemn these disproportionate reactions to the Daily Star article and we request that no judicial action be taken against this newspaper,” said Benjamin Ismaïl, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Asia-Pacific desk. “Covering the activities of a radical Islamist group, even one that has been outlawed, is not the same as supporting it. You just have to look at the international media coverage of Islamic State to understand that. The prime minister’s statement was surprising, to say the least, and represented a denial of the right to information.”Tension has been growing between the media and certain political parties, whose supporters have been using violence against journalists. The authorities are also taking a tougher line with news outlets they regard as overly critical.Media freedom declined in 2014 in Bangladesh, which is ranked 146th out of 180 countries in the latest annual press freedom index that Reporters Without Borders published last week.

“The great problems confronting humankind and democratic systems cannot be addressed without freely-reported, independent and reliable news and information,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We are working on a global mobilization based on concrete solutions, at a disturbing time in which the number of the world’s democracies is starting to decline.”In message posted on the UN website to mark International Day of Democracy, UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres said: “Democracy is showing greater strain than at any time in decades. That is why this International Day should make us look for ways to invigorate democracy and seek answers for the systemic challenges it faces.” Organisation RSF_en Protecting journalistsInternational bodiesEvents Freedom of expressionUnited Nations The Paris-based international NGO is making this important and concrete contribution at a time of very specific historic circumstances, in which humankind is facing major and unprecedented challenges. News Protecting journalistsInternational bodiesEvents Freedom of expressionUnited Nations As the United Nations prepares to celebrate International Day of Democracy tomorrow, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is working on innovative ways to support democracy by reinforcing freely-reported, independent and reliable information throughout the world. September 14, 2018 RSF’s concrete initiatives for more reliable news and information Chaired by Nobel peace laureate Shirin Ebadi and RSF’s Deloire, the commission comprises 25 prominent figures of 18 nationalities. The initiative’s ultimate goal is an international commitment by governments, private-sector companies and civil society representatives to be based on the Declaration and to be called the “International Pledge on Information and Democracy.” In April, RSF launched a “Journalism Trust Initiative” with the aim of promoting journalistic methods and ethics and editorial independence by giving concrete advantages (especially economic advantages and more visibility) to news media that adhere to these standards. A work plan was adopted on 23 May by more than 80 media outlets, publishers’ associations, journalists’ unions, digital platforms and regulatory entities. The next working session will be held in Paris on 5 October.The defence and promotion of journalism, which plays a key role in democracies, also means protecting journalists. Ever since the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2222 in May 2015, RSF has been coordinating the #ProtectJournalists campaign for the appointment of a special representative of the UN secretary-general for the protection of journalists. This campaign, which is backed by a growing number of governments and by 130 media outlets, journalists’ unions and NGOs around the world, has already led to the appointment by the UN secretary-general of 14 focal points with responsibility for journalists’ safety in key UN agencies and departments. RSF has been working in this direction in recent months, launching a series of innovative, concrete and complementary initiatives designed to strengthen freely-reported, independent and reliable news and information, without which proper democracies cannot exist.On 11 September, 70 years after the UN General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Paris, RSF announced the creation of an “Information and Democracy Commission” tasked with drafting an International Declaration on Information and Democracy that will be a point of reference for the provision of democratic guarantees for information and freedom of opinion.

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Community News The Pasadena Senior Center auditorium was jam packed with the City’s finest Thursday morning to celebrate the 20th Annual Black History Breakfast and recognize the accomplishments of black Americans both locally and nationally who continue to shape our society for generations of the future.The early morning breakfast is a two decade strong tradition that is hosted by the San Gabriel Valley Chapter National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) and brought Pasadena Police, Fire, local leaders and residents under one roof to break bread and honor black history in a welcoming community setting.“What’s important about hosting the Black History Breakfast is that it brings us all together, it gives insight into black history in and of itself. We have this breakfast to share our historical events and what African Americans lend to society as a whole,” said Pasadena Police Commander Cheryl Moody.Moody is the Pasadena’s first black female Commander and is also one of the founding members of the San Gabriel Valley Chapter of NOBLE. In 2014, she was elected to a position on the National Executive Board as the Region VI Vice President.NOBLE has nearly 60 chapters and represents over 3,000 members worldwide that represent chief executive officers and command-level law enforcement officials from federal, state, county, municipal law enforcement agencies, and criminal justice practitioners.The organization serves more than 60,000 youth through its major program components that include Mentoring, Education, Leadership Development, and Safety.“NOBLE’s motto is ‘Justice By Action’ so lot of the things we do in our community really relates to promoting that motto,” said Pasadena Police Officer Domino Scott-Jackson who is an Executive Board Member of the NOBLE San Gabriel Valley Chapter.“The importance of celebrating black history in this way allows all of us in the community as well as police personnel and fire personnel to get together and celebrate our accomplishments,” Scott-Jackson added.Breakfast attendees included Mayor Terry Tornek, Congresswoman Judy Chu, Police Chief Phillip Sanchez and several other community leaders.“It’s very important to celebrate Black History. Many of the things that African Americans have done over the years here in this country have made this country much better than it would have been otherwise and so we’re here to celebrate that. Also, another part of history is to make sure we understand some of the challenges that we’ve gone through over the years and so we don’t want those challenges to happen again for others,” said Pasadena Fire Chief Bertral Washington.Congresswoman Judy Chu presented a certificate of congressional recognition that honored NOBLE’s continuous efforts in the Pasadena area.“Today we have come a long way and certainly we see this in Pasadena. We’ve had black Americans who have been outstanding leaders of this community,” said Congresswoman Judy Chu. “I know that together we can work together to make sure that things are hopeful for the next generation,” Chu added.John Muir High School Class of 2016 graduate John Marshall Pointer also received a certificate of recognition for his extensive community involvement as an ambassador of the next generation of Pasadena youth.“It’s really great to see the representatives of police and fire that serve this community and we know that in Pasadena, African Americans and blacks in this community mean a lot and they have done so much and made so many sacrifices for all of those that live in this community and today is a day to honor that and to honor that history,” said District 1 Councilmember Tyron Hampton.For more information about the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE), visit www.noblenational.org/home.aspx Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
