Impact of Heritage Emergency Fund evaluated in new report

first_imgImpact of Heritage Emergency Fund evaluated in new report The report also reveals that as the year progressed and successive lockdowns introduced, more organisations used their grant to innovate their business model, primarily by increasing their digital capability. Boundary Way, an allotment organisation in Wolverhampton (main image), created online workshops and videos that saw its project reach audiences far beyond the local community. St-Martins-in-the-Fields in Trafalgar Square used its grant to deliver concerts online, keeping its singers employed and improving the organisation’s digital capacity. This helped former attendees who were shielding and saw the organisation grow its audience, as people tuned in to concerts from around the world. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The report reveals that as of January 2021 organisations still faced challenges, but it also identifies opportunities for organisations to build back better. This includes considering how they can become more inclusive and keep pace with wider societal changes, such as digital opportunities and the recognition of the importance of green spaces to health and wellbeing. There was also feedback showing that funding provided stress relief to staff from some of the financial burden they faced as well as allowing staff and volunteers to safely return and enabling them to continue with activities that promoted wellbeing. During the summer months there will be celebrations to mark the completion and opening of several flagship heritage projects funded by The National Lottery. They include the Museum of Making, the site of one of the world’s earliest factories and Dorset County Museum, which has four new permanent galleries. 98% of heritage organisations were impacted within the first three weeks of Covid-19. Key findings in the report show that the biggest impact was economic with most using at least some of their emergency funding for staff costs and overheads such as building maintenance and utility bills. Advertisement Many landscape and nature sites experienced high visitor numbers and needed more staff to maintain them. Mourne Heritage Trust in County Down for example was struggling when visitor numbers rocketed, leading to problems such as littering, wildfires and footpath damage. The Trust used its funding to cover staff costs and purchase materials, tools and equipment to help it safely bring back volunteers. After providing this emergency funding, The National Lottery Heritage Fund then moved to distribute heritage funding on behalf of government, through the Culture Recovery Fund and Green Recovery Challenge Fund. The Fund’s own project funding programme has also now reopened, with a focus on resilience and recovery. Over two-thirds of respondents spent at least some of their grant on social distancing measures, which helped many heritage organisations reopen when they were able, as well as enabling many volunteers to return to their roles safely. Tagged with: COVID-19 heritage Heritage Lottery Fund Ros Kerslake, Chief Executive, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, said: 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. With the activity of many community charities threatened by the pandemic, several actively used their funding to continue to support communities, with Community Interest Luton for example supporting an employment scheme during the first lockdown which led to 13 clients gaining employment.  372 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis “In March 2020, the UK’s heritage faced its gravest threat since the Second World War. I am proud of how quickly our staff galvanised to get money out of the door quickly, and I am confident that our quick action not only helped heritage survive the year but has also helped to make organisations more resilient for the future. This report provides key insight into how heritage was affected as well as how we as a funding body can continue to help them innovate and adapt going forward.” Ros Kerslake added: The Heritage Emergency Fund was set up within weeks of the start of the crisis and saw £49,829,600 awarded to 961 organisations across the UK to keep them afloat and help with reopening. “As we emerge from a year of restrictions across the UK, it is exciting to see so many National Lottery-funded projects open, many for the first time after major transformations. Heritage is playing a key part in the country’s recovery, not only in kick-starting the economy, but in helping to improve wellbeing, bringing back that sense of optimism and excitement that has been so missing from our lives recently.” A new report, commissioned by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, evaluates how heritage organisations across the UK used the emergency funding the Fund provided last year to help them respond to the impact of the Covid-19 crisis.

MOVE Texas aims to get more young voters for the upcoming election

first_imgReddIt + posts ReddIt Facebook Linkedin ‘TCU Votes Early’ to help students and faculty get to the polls Joey Palmeri The Office of Multicultural & International Student Services provided transportation to the Southwest Regional Library polling location on Saturday, Oct. 17, 2020. Students, faculty and staff were invited to register in advance to be able to vote. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) Twitter Previous articleHoroscope: October 26, 2020Next articleTCU equestrian team prepares for spring season Joey Palmeri RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR ALL IN to Vote: How TCU students can register to votecenter_img printOrganizations such as MOVE Texas are working to improve the voting experience for young voters and people who lack resources to properly vote. MOVE Texas is a nonprofit and non-partisan organization with the goal to get more young voters out to the polls. The effect of this organization and others like it are already clear. The number of Gen Z voters who are registered for this upcoming election has more than tripled from 7 million in 2016 to 23 million in 2020.In addition, Biden and Trump are tied at 47% in the Texas polls as of Oct. 21. This spike in voters from Gen Z has already shown to have an immediate impact on the 2020 presidential election, as the primarily red state of Texas is beginning to look purple. Founded in 2013 by a group of students from the University of Texas at San Antonio who wanted to increase young voters’ involvement in local elections, MOVE Texas has grown into a statewide organization.It has contacted over 300,000 voters aged 30 and under, added 18 polling locations in Texas and posted all the polling locations on its website. MOVE Texas also started the #TexasTeamUp movement, which got sports organizations and other civic organizations to help boost voter turnout. Read more: Students encourage others to vote in this year’s presidential electionCharlie Bonner, the director of communication for MOVE Texas, spoke about how voter registration looked during a global pandemic.“We were able to help over 50,000 people get registered,” said Bonner. “Which kinda surprised me-I didn’t expect this large of a turnout, especially due to the pandemic.”While the turnout of voters has been successful for the organization, more needs to be done to achieve full success on younger voter turnouts, Bonner said. “Too many of us were sitting on the sideline the last election and I think we are slowly closing that age gap we see in voter registration which has been inspiring,” he said. This election has been successful in getting young people of color to register to vote, as an estimated 1 in 5 Gen Z voters this election is Hispanic with the age range of 18-23 years. One issue MOVE Texas has been combating is voter suppression and systemic racism that limits the abilities of people of color to vote. The organization has made steps to ensure this does not occur during the election.Raven Douglas, the political director of MOVE Texas, explained how voter suppression of people of color is still an issue, citing a stringent ID law Texas passed in 2013 that inhibits many Black and Latinx individuals from voting, since many of them do not have driver’s licenses. Douglas said he believes other resources such as the internet are not as prevalent in communities of color, leading them to be less likely to vote. MOVE Texas is trying to change that and give communities with fewer resources the opportunity to vote and have their voices heard.

This warm condition, known as El Niño, affects the local aquatic environment, but also spurs extreme weather patterns around the world, from flooding in California to droughts in Australia. This winter, the 2015-16 El Niño event will be better observed from space than any previous El Niño.This year’s El Niño is already strong and appears likely to equal the event of 1997-98, the strongest El Niño on record, according to the World Meteorological Organization. All 19 of NASA’s current orbiting Earth-observing missions were launched after 1997. In the past two decades, NASA has made tremendous progress in gathering and analyzing data that help researchers understand more about the mechanics and global impacts of El Niño.“El Niño is a fascinating phenomenon because it has such far-reaching and diverse impacts. The fact that fires in Indonesia are linked with circulation patterns that influence rainfall over the United States shows how complex and interconnected the Earth system is,” said Lesley Ott, research meteorologist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland.Using NASA satellite observations in tandem with supercomputer processing power for modeling systems, scientists have a comprehensive suite of tools to analyze El Niño events and their global impacts as never before. Throughout this winter, NASA will share the latest scientific insights and imagery updates related to El Niño.For instance, scientists are learning how El Niño affects the year-to-year variability for fire seasons in the western United States, Amazon and Indonesia. El Niño may also affect the yearly variability of the ground-level pollutant ozone that severely affects human health. Researchers will be keenly focused on how the current El Niño will affect the drought in California.“We still have a lot to learn about these connections, and NASA’s suite of satellites will help us understand these processes in a new and deeper way,” said Ott.Many NASA satellites observe environmental factors that are associated with El Niño evolution and its impacts, including sea surface temperature, sea surface height, surface currents, atmospheric winds and ocean color. The joint NASA/NOAA/CNES/EUMETSAT Jason-2 satellite measures sea surface height, which is especially useful in quantifying the heat stored and released by the oceans during El Niño years.NASA satellites also help scientists see the global impact of El Niño. The warmer than normal eastern Pacific Ocean has far-reaching effects worldwide. These events spur disasters, such as fires and floods. They change storm tracks, cloud cover and other weather patterns, and they have devastating effects on fisheries and other industries.NASA’s Earth-observing satellites help monitor those and other impacts by measuring land and ocean conditions that both influence and are affected by El Niño. For instance, NASA’s Global Precipitation Measurement mission provides worldwide precipitation measurements every three hours. NASA’s Soil Moisture Active Passive mission measures soil moisture in the top layer of land. Both of these satellites are useful for monitoring drought, improving flood warnings and watching crop and fishing industries.“NASA is at the forefront in providing key observations of El Niño and advancing our understanding of its role in shaping Earth’s weather and climate patterns,” said Duane Waliser, chief scientist of the Earth Science and Technology Directorate at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.For NASA’s El Niño Watch page, visit:https://sealevel.jpl.nasa.gov/science/elninopdo/latestdata/ More Cool Stuff faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyCitizen Service CenterPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Your email address will not be published.

Pasadena Police Use of Force Statistics Continue to Drop

first_img Subscribe Public Safety Pasadena Police Use of Force Statistics Continue to Drop Kick and strike incidents down by 54 percent from 2018 By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 | 5:23 am First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena police officers opened fire at two suspects in a May 2, 2019 incident during which a driver allegedly attempted to drive straight at them to escape. Image courtesy City of PasadenaAccording to a report by Pasadena Police Chief John Perez, last year his officers used force in 34 of 6,300 arrests during 120,000 calls for service.In total police used force in less than one percent of the arrests made, .54 percent of the time. The statistics were scheduled to be presented to the City Council’s Public Safety Committee on Wednesday, but the meeting was canceled due to a lack of a quorum. The presentation will be rescheduled.According to the report, Pasadena police officers were involved in three officer-involved shootings last year.On January 11, 2019, officers shot at Brandon Green during a foot pursuit in the 1800 block of Raymond Avenue after Green retrieved a gun from his pants. Green fell to the ground, but neither he nor police officers were injured.Green allegedly was wanted on an outstanding drug warrant.In May, Pasadena police officers fatally shot Daniel Warren, 36, in Northwest Pasadena after Warren pointed a gun at the officers, who opened fire on him. Warren was wearing a bullet-proof vest and armed with a rifle fitted with a high-capacity drum-style magazine, as well as a handgun.Warren had retreated to a nearby backyard, where he was found unresponsive and pronounced dead from at least one gunshot wound.That same month, police fired on an SUV near the Mountain View Cemetery at the end of a car chase. After the car crashed near Raymond Avenue and Woodbury Road officers ordered the suspects to get out of the vehicle. When the driver started the vehicle and attempted to flee in the direct path of officers, a police officer fired two rounds from his service weapon. There were no injuries to either the suspects or police.The department launched six personnel investigations against local police officers from the 47 complaints received.According to the report most crimes were reduced by double digits except for assault and motor thefts.“I’m concerned about the assaults,” Perez told Pasadena Now. “Street violence impacts quality of life. I’m also concerned about the burglaries. It doesn’t matter if statistics are down when your house is the one that has been broken into to or there have been burglaries on your street.”Perez said he is also paying more attention to where the calls for service are coming from because many times they are indicators of possible crime spikes in those areas.Additional numbers from the report revealed there were 12 shooting victims last year, one gang-related murder, four homicides, which is a 43 percent decrease from 2018, 32 assaults on Pasadena police officers. Officers seized 225 firearms, a 2 percent decline in crime and a 12 percent decline since 2016.Perez said despite the good numbers, he hopes to reduce Part 1 crimes — homicide, sexual assault, assault, robbery, burglary, arson, larceny and auto theft — by 3 percent and calls for service by 5 percent in the next fiscal year which begins in July.“I am hoping we can bring down crime a little more,” Perez said, “I think we can do it.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

“Set Up Buffer Stock Of 100 MT For Supply To NCT Of Delhi”: Delhi High Court Directs Centre -Read Order

first_imgNews Updates”Set Up Buffer Stock Of 100 MT For Supply To NCT Of Delhi”: Delhi High Court Directs Centre -Read Order Nupur Thapliyal4 May 2021 11:30 PMShare This – xThe Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the Central Government to set up buffer stock of 100 MT of liquid medical oxygen in collaboration with the Delhi Government for supply to the NCT of Delhi and neighbouring areas. A division bench comprising of Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Rekha Palli further directed that steps in this regard must be taken in the next 3 days.The development came after the amicus curiae Rajshekhar Rao apprised the Court about a detailed discussion with the suppliers stating that the present infrastructure allows them to only supply 480 to 520 MT of liquid medical oxygen per day and not beyond that.Furthermore, Rao also submitted that it was essential for the Central Government, in collaboration with the GNCTD, to prepare a buffer stock of Oxygen to be used for emergency use and to ensure supply lines continue to function even in unforeseen circumstances.Finding merit in the aforesaid submission, the Court after noting that a direction has already been issued by the Supreme Court vide order dated 30th April in this regard, ordered thus:”We, therefore, direct the Central Government to, in collaboration with the GNCTD set up a buffer stock of 100 MT of LMO in the NCT of Delhi, or, for supply to the NCT of Delhi in neighboring areas. Steps in this regard for creation of a buffer stock of 100 MT of LMO be taken in the next 3 days.”It is pertinent to note that the Supreme Court in para 30 of its order directed thus:”We therefore, direct the Central Government in collaboration with the States to prepare a buffer stock of oxygen to be used for emergency purposes to ensure supply lines continue to function even in unforeseen circumstances. The location of the emergency stocks shall be decentralised so as to be immediately available if the normal supply chain is disrupted to any hospital for any reason. The emergency stocks shall be created within the next four days. The replenishment of the emergency stocks will also be monitored on a real time basis through the virtual control room in active consultation with each state/UT. This is in addition to the day to day allocations.”During the course of hearing, the bench pulled up the Centre for its failure to meet the assurance with regard to the supply of 700MT per day liquid medical oxygen to the Delhi Government in line with the directions passed by the Supreme Court.Click Here To Read OrderTagsDelhi High Court COVID -19 second covid wave Oxygen Crisis Buffer stock GNCTD Central government Justice Rekha Palli Justice Vipin Sanghi Next Storylast_img read more
