Contactless donation points installed across London to help homeless

first_img The Mayor of London has installed contactless donation points across the city to encourage Londoners to help the homeless this winter.The TAP London points let people donate £3 by tapping their contactless payment card or device. There were 35 at launch, with plans for around 90 in total, dotted around busy areas of the capital.100% of each £3 donation will go to the London Homeless Charities Group: a coalition of 22 charities including Depaul UK, Crisis, and Homeless Link working in the city. So far there have been over 1,200 taps, raising more than £3,600.

There is also a GoFundMe page, and the money raised by this will also be split equally between these charities.TAP London is a not-for-profit company working to improve the lives of homeless Londoners through contactless technology and innovation. It was set up in 2017 to raise funds for local homelessness charities from small, one-off contactless donations. The technology for the contactless donation points is provided by its partner GoodBox.The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:“It is shameful that rough sleeping has risen so much under this Government, and it is our moral duty to do all we can to help people facing homelessness in our city. This winter, City Hall are doubling our outreach teams and making sure severe weather shelters open more often, and we want to make it as easy as possible for Londoners to play their part too.“Last year, Londoners’ generosity helped us raise nearly £200,000, and referrals to Streetlink went up by 45 per cent over the winter. These new contactless donation points will make a big difference in encouraging Londoners to do their part to help.”Polly Gilbert, co-founder of TAP London said:“Our pockets are getting lighter. Many of us just don’t carry change anymore. So we have to act quickly in creating new ways for people to give to those in need. If we each made just one “TAP” to tackle homelessness – we could bring about radical change expanding and sustaining vital services for Londoners in need.”Former London Mayor, Boris Johnson also launched a contactless donation scheme, Pennies for London, in 2014. It encouraged people to donate a penny to support good causes each time they used their Oyster cards, but closed two years later having raised £3,000.

States intensify attacks on reproductive rights

first_imgIt’s war. Patriarchal diehards in state legislatures across the country are bound and determined to criminalize what should be a private decision between a woman, a girl or a gender-oppressed individual and their doctor. The target of their new legislation is to kill the now-still-legal right to terminate a pregnancy.Brazen misogynists, pining for the days when a woman was a man’s legal property, want to roll the clock back and not only deny access to legal abortion but to contraception. In their fantasy world, Roe v. Wade, the hard-fought 1973 Supreme Court ruling legalizing abortion, is already shredded.On April 10 Ohio became the sixth state to pass a so-called “fetal heartbeat” bill. When the bill goes into effect in July it will be illegal to obtain an abortion after the sixth week of pregnancy — often before pregnancy is even detected. Doctors who perform the procedures could face felony charges, with up to a year in prison and $20,000 in fines. There is no exception for rape or incest.Gov. Mike DeWine wasted no time in signing the bill as soon as it landed on his desk April 11, despite the fact that state and federal courts have deemed these laws unconstitutional in Arkansa, Iowa, Kentucky and North Dakota. Similar bills are in various stages of the legislative process in five other states; Georgia passed one on March 29, which the governor could sign any day. (WW, April 4) The law is misnamed. According to the Cleveland Clinic, it is only “after the eighth week [that] your baby is called a fetus instead of an embryo.” At that stage the embryo is smaller than a pea, and the brain and nervous system are undeveloped. The fact that a heartbeat can be detected via ultrasound is being used to equate abortion with taking a life.Ohio Senate Bill 23, now wrongly titled “Human Rights Protection Act,” is just the latest of a slew of state anti-choice bills being passed across the country. Over 20 such bills have passed in Ohio alone since 2011. These bills have deterred women from seeking abortions, causing the number of women’s clinics which provide the procedure to drop from 16 to nine in eight years.  They are all located within six metropolitan areas. Many women have to travel to have an abortion. A mandatory 24-hour waiting period means having to pay for an overnight stay where the clinic is located, plus transportation, meals, child care and other expenses. These costs, on top of the cost of the abortion itself, are an imposition on poor women, especially women of color, low-wage workers, immigrants, youth, women in rural areas, disabled women and domestic violence survivors.Angry reproductive rights activists held militant protests inside and outside the Ohio Statehouse while legislators were voting on the law. The Ohio chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, representing reproductive rights advocates, has sued to have SB23 overturned. Christian right’s overall strategyThe organized Christian right is pushing these bills, knowing full well they cannot survive a legal challenge while Roe v. Wade remains law. Their strategy is to carry their legal fight to the U.S. Supreme Court, with the goal  of getting Roe overturned. Their optimism was bolstered with the appointment of right-wing woman-haters Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the high court.As Ohio State Rep. Ron Hood stated, “Will there be a lawsuit? Yeah, we are counting on it. We’re excited about it.” (wosu.org, April 11)These anti-choice bills are part of a broad political agenda that includes “religious freedom” exemptions to allow anti-LGBTQI2S discrimination and laws giving their version of Christianity privileged status. Emboldened by the presidential election in 2016, Christian nationalists launched a legislative campaign called “Operation Blitz.” Since then, states have passed a multitude of legislative assaults on LGBTQI2S communities, religious minorities, women and gender-oppressed people.Religious bigotry, especially Islamophobia, is stoked by laws espoused in the 148-page manual of Operation Blitz. Five states now require the display of the motto “In God We Trust” in public buildings, including schools. Others allow or require the teaching of “Biblical literacy.” Operation Blitz has organized “Prayer Caucuses” in about three dozen state legislatures. The manual’s newest section is titled “Talking Points to Counter Anti-Religious Freedom Legislation.” In his exposé “Blitzing to Dominion,” Frederick Carlson explains, “This section insists that there cannot be inherent civil rights regarding ‘sexual orientation’ and ‘gender identity’ because the terms are said to be too vague and there is too much disagreement over their meaning.” (politicalresearch.org, April 11)After an oppressive bill is passed, one even more ominous is presented. Just days before Ohio’s abortion ban became law, Texas saw the introduction of a far more extreme bill that would allow the death penalty for women who have abortions and doctors who perform them.  Cristina Vega, with South Texans for Reproductive Justice who volunteer at Whole Women’s Health in McAllen, Texas, told Workers World: “I think it’s ridiculous how people value the ‘lives’ of fetuses — they call them children but they don’t have feelings, they don’t even know that they’re alive — over women who are alive, who do have feelings, who know that they are alive, who are just trying to make the best decision for themselves and for their families. They would be put to death by supposed ‘pro-lifers.’”Vega added that this is “extremely hypocritical,” given that Texas has the highest rate of execution in the country — with 560 people put to death by the state since 1982.Democratic Party ‘allies’ inconsistentThe anti-reproductive rights bills are largely passed and signed by Republican-majority legislatures and Republican governors. To secure their passage, bill supporters have mounted an ideological assault that shames both women who seek abortions and their physicians. They wrongly refer to embryos and fetuses as “babies,” deliberately conflating legal abortion with infanticide or even genocide. The goal is to make such unscientific and stigmatizing language part of the culture. Democratic legislators, seen as allies of the pro-choice movement, have occasionally capitulated to this mindset. In 2015 Ohio Democrats all voted for a bill that prohibited state funding for abortions, under the guise of providing first-time state funding to rape crisis centers. However, these centers cannot use those funds to offer abortion referrals to rape victims. This year, Democrats, who unanimously opposed the heartbeat bill, had nevertheless voted minutes earlier for a state Senate resolution “to urge the Congress of the United States, as expeditiously as possible, to enact a Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act.” This largely symbolic act was intended to shame anyone who has an abortion and to falsely equate late abortions with murder.Clearly, it’s not enough to vote for “pro-choice” politicians. It took a movement in the streets to force the passage of Roe v. Wade in 1973, and it will take a mass movement — one allied with all oppressed groups being targeted by hateful legislation and rhetoric — to keep it from being overturned.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Grieving families targeted by thieves

first_imgEmail Previous articleLimerick fire victims move back into their home after 11 weeksNext articleChampions up next for Limerick FC Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Two rescued from the water overnight NewsLocal NewsGrieving families targeted by thievesBy Alan Jacques – March 20, 2014 932 TAGSGardaíJosie WalshMusic Limerick Twitter Print The late Josie WalshGARDAI in Limerick are advising grieving families to be extra vigilant following the ransacking of a home in the city while family members were at their father’s funeral.The Walsh family returned to scenes of ‘absolute destruction’ at their O’Connell Avenue home after the funeral of 84-year-old business man Josie Walsh, who was owner of the Crescent Garage on Alphonsus Street and died suddenly on March 4.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Following Requiem Mass at the Dominican Church in Pery Square, the family travelled to St Jerome Crematorium in Dublin as it was the late Mr Walsh’s wish to be cremated.When they returned from the funeral, his widow Geraldine and her two children Rose (26), and Adam (18) found that their home had been ransacked. Doors were ripped from their hinges, cabinets and drawers smashed, insulation ripped out of the attic and, worst of all, was the wanton destruction of Josie’s bedroom.Personal belongings that held huge sentimental value for his wife and children were also stolen.“My father died at home in his own bed. He was a very neat man and liked to keep everything tidy. He loved his home and we made sure to leave it how he always liked it when we left for the funeral.When we came back, it was the most destroyed room in the house. Wardrobes were smashed, drawers and their contents were thrown everywhere and his bed and mattress were ripped apart,” Josie’s daughter Rose told the Limerick Post.“Our home will never feel the same again and my mother is too frightened to go back there. She doesn’t feel safe in the house we lived in for 23 years. Our house is just a shell now, it has been totally violated. It held so many memories and it will never feel the same again. The place is in wreck and ruin,” she said.The Walsh family believe the burglars were in their home for six to seven hours. Among the possessions stolen were all Geraldine’s jewellery including items her husband had bought her before his death.“Josie didn’t have much jewellery himself but they took whatever pieces he had and we would do anything to get them back as they have huge significance to the his children,” said Rose’s longterm boyfriend, Patrick Dundon.“To see Josie’s wife on her knees in anguish at the destruction of her home after the loss of her husband was simply heartbreaking. His family didn’t even have time to grieve,” Patrick added.Rose warned that thieves are specifically targeting grieving families through the death notices and online. She urged families to be more security conscious, particularly during funerals.“People keep calling the criminals who did this, animals, but an animal wouldn’t do this. These people are just monsters, that’s the only word for them. This is happening to old people who are too frightened to report it.We feel it is very important that people are aware these crimes are being carried out. We will not stand for what these monsters did to us and the people of Limerick won’t stand for it either. By highlighting it we feel we’ve already triumphed,” said Ms Walsh.Josie’s wife Geraldine has been staying in a hotel in the city since returning from the funeral over two weeks ago as she is now too frightened to stay in her own home.Gardaí at Roxboro are investigating the crime and acting Superintendent, Inspector Brendan McDonagh advised people to have someone stay in their homes during funerals as criminals could access details on their mobile phones.The Walsh family are asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the O’Connell Avenue area between March 6 and 9, to ring the Garda Confidential telephone number 1800 666 111 or Roxboro Garda station on 061-214340.

Council silence over Scare Factory closure order

A fire safety management strategy was agreed between the operator and the local authority.“Irish Public Bodies (IPB) Insurance have notified Limerick City and County Council that in respect of the use of its building, the Old Town Hall, Rutland St, as a ‘Scare Factory’, they have withdrawn public liability cover. This decision was taken following an inspection of the premises and scrutiny of the insurance policy documentation provided by the operator.”“The Council is following its legal advice and the advice of its insurers on this issue that the building in its current state is unsuitable for public access/this type of event. The operator was notified accordingly to cease operations,” added the spokesperson.Despite this, Mr Ryan insisted that the building was safe and was determined to remain open until November 2.“The building is fully insured with full public liability insurance on my behalf. The City and County Council are indemnified on my insurance. The issue is with their insurance,” he told the Limerick Post last week.“This event has brought hundreds of people. It’s brought actors from 18 to 60 years of age together and is waking up that side of the city. I don’t want to be fighting with the council but my biggest issue is that we were being closed and I had to counteract that,” he concluded.The adult-themed haunted house event, which employed 30 actors, was a runaway success with queues of up to three hours each evening.

Even Touchstone continues to be amazed at the way the cactus has “shot up” and she’s a little sad, too.The century plant was an offering from Touchstone’s daughter about 15 years ago. The cactus did just what a cactus is supposed to do. It sent forth leaves with prickly rims and sharp spikes at the tip that can pierce to the bone. What Touchstone learned about her show-stopping plant is the century plant or the agave American does have a long life, usually 10 to 30 years. But it only blooms once in its lifetime.Near the end of its life, the plant sends up a stalk that may reach up to 25 feet. Touchstone estimates the stalk of her plant is about 16 to 18 feet. The plant dies after flowering but produces suckers from the base which will continue its growth but never to flower again.

Subglacial processes on an Antarctic ice stream bed 2: Can modelled ice dynamics explain the morphology of mega-scale glacial lineations?

first_imgMega-scale glacial lineations (MSGLs) are highly elongate subglacial bedforms associated with ice streaming. However, the link between MSGLs and rapid ice flow is largely qualitative, and there have been few attempts to quantitatively link their formation to ice flow characteristics (e.g. ice velocity, thickness, basal shear stress). We take measurements of MSGLs from a palaeo-ice stream that once occupied Marguerite Trough, Antarctic Peninsula and explore a range of possible correlations with ice dynamics generated from an ensemble of numerical modelling experiments that reproduce the deglaciation of the ice stream. Our results confirm that high mean ice velocities and a weak bed correlate with longer MSGLs. Furthermore, the height of MSGLs are low (2–3 m) where modelled basal shear stress is low, but their height tends to be higher and more variable where basal shear stress is larger. The mean density of MSGLs decreases as ice flux increases. Our analysis further suggests that the length of MSGLs is a function of basal ice velocity and time. Although our data/model correlations confirm the importance of ice velocity in MSGL formation, a significant challenge remains if we are to employ MSGLs as a quantifiable measure of past ice stream velocity.last_img read more
