Students will use the Blackboard online learning management system, and attend two residential courses of three days each in south-east England. They will have to complete seven assignments during the year.The Advanced Diploma will cost about £3,500.Paul Marvell, director of professional development and membership at the IoF, said: “If you want to develop your understanding of fundraising in the context of your organisation and society as a whole; if you want to stretch your skills in analysis, synthesis and evaluation to the limit; if you want to understand how to represent fundraising better to your board and senior management team; if you want to understand philanthropic psychology and how to apply it, the Advanced Diploma in Fundraising could be for you.”Other qualificationsThe Advanced Diploma represents the fourth tier of a framework of qualifications begun three years ago by the Institute.

  • Trump attacks Mashpee Wampanoag lands during pandemic crisis

    first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this This is a statement from the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe on Trump’s attempted theft of Mashpee Wampanoag lands.March 27, 2020 Message from the Chair: We will take action to prevent the loss of our landAt 4:00 p.m. today — on the very day that the United States has reached a record 100,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus and our Tribe is desperately struggling with responding to this devastating pandemic — the Bureau of Indian Affairs informed me that the Secretary of the Interior has ordered that our reservation be disestablished and that our land be taken out of trust. Not since the termination era of the mid-twentieth century has a Secretary taken action to disestablish a reservation.Today’s action was cruel, and it was unnecessary. The Secretary is under no court order to take our land out of trust. He is fully aware that litigation to uphold our status as a tribe eligible for the benefits of the Indian Reorganization Act is ongoing.It begs the question, what is driving our federal trustee’s crusade against our reservation?Regardless of the answer, we the People of the First Light have lived here since before there was a Secretary of the Interior, since before there was a State of Massachusetts, since before the Pilgrims arrived 400 years ago. We have survived, we will continue to survive. These are our lands, these are the lands of our ancestors, and these will be the lands of our grandchildren. This administration has come and it will go. But we will be here, always. And we will not rest until we are treated equally with other federally recognized tribes and the status of our reservation is confirmed.I will continue to provide updates on this important issue in the coming days, as we take action to prevent the loss of our trust status.Kutâputunumuw;Chairman Cedric CromwellQaqeemasq (Running Bear)(tinyurl.com/r5o4zwg)last_img read more

  • An appreciation of the magnificent Cicely Tyson

    first_imgHarriet Tubman in “A Woman Called Moses,” “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman,” as Coretta Scott King in “King,” Rebecca in “Sounder” and the mother of Rosa Parks in “The Rosa Parks Story” — these are just some of the roles and movies that the great Cicely Tyson either portrayed or starred in during her illustrious 60-plus-year career. And even though she died at the age of 96 on Jan. 28, the news of her death was still a shock and a blow to the nervous system. Tyson was more than a great actor; she was a legend and a pioneer.  As Miss Jane PittmanWhether on TV, the big screen or on Broadway, Cicely Tyson may have physically appeared as petite, but she, along with the likes of the late Ruby Dee, was a towering force to be reckoned with when it came to portraying strong African American women characters, famous or not.   Her three Emmys, Tony, Peabody Award, Kennedy Center honor and honorary Academy Award for lifetime achievement and numerous other awards merely reflected her acting genius, but Tyson did not use acting accolades to measure her true worth as the kind of actor she aspired to be when she first joined the prestigious Actor’s Studio during the 1940s.  Born in East Harlem to working-class parents who emigrated from the Caribbean, Tyson’s mother kicked her out of the home when she made the decision to make acting a career. Very much influenced by the Civil Rights Movement, during the 1960s Tyson decided to take on acting roles which portrayed Black women in an anti-racist, non-stereotypical way. She was the first Black woman to wear an Afro for the 1963 TV series: “East Side/West Side.”  Tyson and other actors of color had to make hard decisions on which roles to reject and which to accept in order to make a living in an entertainment industry dominated by white male studio bosses and with very few screenwriters of color. But Tyson understood more than anyone that her principled sacrifice would limit her access to roles, many of which were one-dimensional and demeaning in their depiction of Black people. Wanting to make a real impactIn an interview with Parade magazine in 1972, Tyson remarked: “We Black actresses have played so many prostitutes and drug addicts and housemaids, always negative. I won’t play that kind of characterless role any more, even if I have to go back to starving.” As Rebecca in “Sounder”Following her brilliant Oscar-nominated role in “Sounder,” playing the spouse of a sharecropper sent to prison for “stealing” food to feed his family during the Depression, Tyson, then 48 years old, had to wait two years for her next job.  That job turned out to be the groundbreaking TV movie, “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman,” which chronicled the life of a 110-year-old Black woman who began her life in slavery, saw her spouse lynched by the KKK and was active through the Civil Rights era. The image of Tyson’s 110-year-old character defiantly drinking from a “whites-only” water fountain still remains one of the most stirring scenes ever filmed. It was a tour-de-force triumph that won Tyson the first Emmy for a Black actress in a leading dramatic role. An estimated 40 million people tuned in for her performance.  Tyson told Entertainment News Service in 1997, “I wait for roles — first, to be written for a woman, then, to be written for a Black woman.  And then I have the audacity to be selective about the kinds of roles I play. I’ve really got three strikes against me. So, aren’t you amazed I’m still here?”The Cicely L. Tyson Community School of Performing and Fine Arts in East Orange, N.J., was named in honor of the actor in 1995. Tyson would visit the school on an annual basis to work with the majority Black students, sharing her formidable talent and support. Former student Allen Ashby told a local CBS affiliate: “What she did by giving back is what I personally want to live by. Giving back to my community.” (cbslocal.com, Jan. 29)Cicely Tyson and Rosa Parks 1984In 1984, Tyson presented the Eleanor Roosevelt Woman of Courage Award to Civil Rights pioneer and her idol, Rosa Parks, in New York City. Tyson once stated, “It amuses me when people say, ‘Oh, my God, you’ve done so much.’ But it isn’t that I’ve done so much. It’s that what I have done has made a real impact, and I’d rather have it that way.” (Washington Post, Jan. 28)For anyone who has not experienced this brilliant artist, rent her DVDs or livestream her movies to witness a true artist and legend at work.

  • Turkish Cypriot authorities stop opposition journalist entering other part of island

    first_imgNews News Reporters Without Borders today protested against the action of the Turkish Cypriot authorities in preventing Sener Levent, editor of the Turkish Cypriot opposition daily Afrika, from crossing the border into the southern, Greek Cypriot part of the island on 4 May because he has no identity papers. Levent was stripped of his papers by the authorities in 2000.”This incident is yet one more example of the independent press being obstructed in its work,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard said in a letter to the Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash. “We call on you to put a stop to the discrimination against Sener Levent and restore full freedom of movement to him,” Ménard said. “If his identity papers are not returned to him at once, we will consider that Levent is being held in your country against his will,” the letter added.Since the Turkish Cypriot authorities began allowing people to cross the border between the two parts of the island on 23 April, many journalists have done so by just presenting their press card. Levent, together with fellow journalists Ali Osman and Faize Ozdemirciler of the same newspaper, were however unable to cross the border when they tried to travel to the south of the island at the invitation of the president of the Union of Cypriot Journalists, Andreas Kannaouros.When asked to show their identify papers at the border, Levent could not produce his because the authorities took his ID documents from him in 2000 when they accused him of spying on behalf of the Greek Cypriot authorities. Although the charges were later dropped, his papers were never returned.Cypriot journalists demonstrated their support for Levent at the Hotel Ledra Palace checkpoint in Nicosia on 6 May. The Union of Cypriot Journalists also handed in a petition to the United Nations denouncing the behaviour of the Turkish Cypriot authorities.For the past three years, Afrika has been subjected to attacks, death threats, seizure of equipment and fines in a campaign to gag its criticism of the Turkish Cypriot authorities. On 9 August 2002, Levent was sentenced to six months in prison for “affront to the president” of the Turkish Cypriot part of the island. He was released after two months.

  • No response from president to journalist’s appeal

    first_imgNews October 21, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information ColombiaAmericas RSF_en Reporters Without Borders supports the request for investigation that radio journalist Claudia Julieta Duque sent to President Juan Manuel Santos a week ago after being told about an order for her execution. Since then, there has been silence from the authorities and Duque has every reason to be worried.“While supporting Duque’s personal request, we also urge the authorities to take great care, during this period of such important judicial proceedings, to protect all journalists who have been DAS targets,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We welcome the fact that justice is beginning to be rendered in these cases that involved extremely serious violations of human rights and civil liberties. We are also aware that these judicial proceeding are fraught with risks for those who suffered these violations and who, at the same, covered them as reporters.”Duque, who works for Radio Nizkor, is one of the journalists who has been the direct target of dirty tricks by the Department of Administrative Security (DAS) since President Alvaro Uribe’s two terms in office (2002-2010) for criticizing his “democratic security” policy for dealing the country’s armed groups.Duque sent her letter on 14 September, the same day that Colombia’s supreme court convicted former DAS chief Jorge Noguera of abuse of authority, murder and criminal association (with paramilitary groups) and sentenced him to 25 years in prison and a 20-year ban on holding public office. Although Noguera was acquitted of the 2003 murders of the journalist Zully Codina and the parliamentarian Fernando Pisciotti, he and his successors at the head of the DAS and several other senior officials will soon go on trial in connection with another component of the so-called DASgate scandal, illegal phone tapping (see the Reporters Without Borders report).The threats against Duque have intensified since the Washington Post published a story on 21 August with her and Karen DeYoung’s joint by-line about the use of US aid in illegal activities by the DAS under the guise of fighting terrorism.Former President Uribe immediately responded to the article, accusing its authors and the Washington Post’s Colombia correspondent, Juan Forero, of being in the “pay of the guerrillas,” thereby exposing them to even more danger. In two other articles this month for the bimonthly Un Pasquín, Duque wrote about the alleged links between certain prominent figures and Carlos Castaño, the onetime head of the paramilitary United Self-Defence Forces of Colombia (AUC).The target of threats and harassment since 2001, Duque was the beneficiary of a formal protection request which the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights addressed to the Colombian government in 2009. She has been under interior ministry police protective surveillance since 2004. Her investigative coverage of two murders of journalists, Jaime Garzón Forero in 1999 and Clodomiro Castilla in 2010, has been particularly sensitive and continues to give rise to serious threats.Photo: Semana ColombiaAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Colombia Receive email alerts April 27, 2021 Find out morecenter_img to go further 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Organisation RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia Reports September 22, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 No response from president to journalist’s appeal Newslast_img read more

  • Miriam O’Callaghan urges Limerick to fight back against cancer

    first_imgDaffodil Day volunteers Niamh Keating from Limerick City, RTÉ’s Aengus Mac Grianna, volunteer Maura O’Flaherty and Boots Irish Cancer Society Information Pharmacist Clare O’Neill. Picture: Andres PovedaMiriam O’Callaghan has urged people of Limerick to dig deep this Daffodil Day to help the record number of people being diagnosed with cancer.The RTE broadcaster, who lost a sister to cancer, was speaking at the launch of the Irish Cancer Society’s 2018 Daffodil Day, which will take place on 23rd March.There are currently 165,000 people living with cancer in Ireland and over 12 months 1364 people in Limerick were diagnosed with the disease.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Miriam said: “Tragically a person dies from cancer every hour in Ireland, but for so many people there’s also great hope. More people are surviving cancer now than ever before thanks to lifesaving research. Daffodil Day, proudly supported by Boots Ireland, is a day where we can all help fight back against cancer. Like so many Irish people, I have lost loved ones to cancer. I lost my precious sister Anne who was just 33 when she died. On March 23rd people of Limerick can help fund lifesaving research and crucial services to ensure cancer patients and their families are properly supported. Get involved now at www.cancer.ie”Speaking at the launch, Chief Executive of the Irish Cancer Society Averil Power appealed to the public to support cancer patients in the community.Averil said: “As the number of Irish people with cancer increases, record numbers are turning to the Irish Cancer Society for information, care and support. Only two per cent of our funding comes from the State. We are therefore hugely dependent on the generosity of the public to fund vital services used locally.“Last year, the number of people using our Volunteer Driver Service to travel to chemotherapy appointments increased by fifteen per cent. A total of 238 journeys were covered for patients in Limerick. Our Night Nursing service provided 409 nights of care to terminally-ill patients locally in their own homes. None of this would be possible without strong support for Daffodil Day from individuals and communities across Ireland.”Bernadette Lavery, MD, Boots Ireland said: “Colleagues in Limerick are excited to join with Daffodil Day volunteers to fight back against cancer this March 23rd. We see the effect cancer has on the lives of patients and families in the communities we serve, and we are determined to make a difference. We have worked closely with the Irish Cancer Society for five years and are delighted to extend our support to their flagship fundraising day this year as official main sponsor.”More about health here.

  • Letting agent jailed over £100,000 theft and fraud from employer

    first_imgA 37-year-old letting agent in Rugby “whose dishonesty knew no bounds” has been jailed for two-and-a-half years for stealing over £100,000 from her employer.Rachel Cefai’s fraud is all the more shocking because the theft took place while she was serving a suspended sentence for stealing from her previous employer.Cefai pleaded guilty in court last week to theft, two charges of fraud and breaching her suspended sentence.Warwick Crown Court heard how Cefai began working at Rugby sales and letting agency Dunsmore Estates in 2010 and rose swiftly through the ranks to a senior position.But in 2016 it came to light that she had been misusing the company credit card to the tune of nearly £3,000.It also later emerged that she had directed cash deposits paid by tenants to her own bank account totalling £105,592.Falsifying documentsCefai managed to get away with the cash deposit theft by falsifying documents to show that the tenants owed the money to the company.The court also heard that she stole furniture worth £900 from a pub that one of her colleagues had bought after gaining access to keys for the property.During the hearing her legal representative urged the judge to pass another suspended sentence and revealed that the former letting agent had sold her home to repay the money she had stolen.But Judge Peter Cooke pointed out that she had completed the unpaid work required under the terms of her previous suspended sentence during time claimed as paid leave from Dunmore Estates.“You were told when the suspended sentence was imposed that if there was further offending, immediate custody would follow – but you went straight back to work and carried on stealing,” local paper the Rugby Advertiser reports.Letting agent jailed Rachel Cefai rugby Warwickshire April 23, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
