By providing an in-app donation option, children as young as six are able to learn how even a small amount of money can make a big difference to the world around them. It’s heart-warming to see donations from our kind-spirited young community increase during this period of lockdown, which has had a huge impact on charities’ ability to fundraise.”Mike McGrath, Head of Partnerships at the NSPCC commented: Advertisement “Raising this huge amount of money is a fantastic achievement by young people who are learning how their money can help others.

Launched over two years ago with much publicity, the Indiana Grown program had no staff and no funding and as a result went nowhere. Last August, Lt. Governor Ellspermann revived the program and appointed a 12 member commission to revamp it. After 7 months of work, ISDA director Ted McKinney said Indiana Grown is still not ready to bloom, “I think we are getting close as we dial in and try and finish up a business plan.” A meeting of the commission took place this week, but failed to produce a final report. By Gary Truitt – Feb 12, 2015 SHARE Part of the problem is the diversity of Indiana agriculture. The first commission meeting had most members wanting to move in different directions. McKinney says the commission has finally come together, “At the latest meeting, we went around the table and there was complete unanimity and that was exciting to see come together.” Facebook Twitter The program is part of the governor’s budget, but must will be approved by the General Assembly. The question is: will the final plan be done before the legislature adjourns? “We hope to be able to talk about details in about 4 weeks, perhaps a little more,” said McKinney. He told HAT that the Governor’s office, Lt. Governor, and members of the General Assembly have been kept informed on the commission’s progress. Currently there are less than 20 Hoosier producers enrolled in the program. Indiana Grown, Still Waiting to Bloom SHARE But many key decisions have yet to be finalized, including what the program will be called and how much it will cost. McKinney refused to give a number or even a range of what the budget for the program might be except to say, “We do not want a large, cash-laden program.” He also stated that the current status of having no funds was not an option for the future.
News ChinaAsia – Pacific Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes April 27, 2021 Find out more to go further Well-known blogger Xu Lai told one of his relatives yesterday that he has been released from the hospital where he was being treated for the stab wounds he received two weeks ago. “I feel fine and I am now resting at home,” he said. Xu was attacked by two men in the bathroom of Beijing’s Dan Xiang Jie bookshop on 14 February immediately after giving a reading with the theme of “Xu Lai’s Tastes.” One stabbed him twice in the stomach. The other tried to cut off one of his hands with a cleaver.————————-18.02 – Call for thorough investigation into stabbing of well-known blogger Reporters Without Borders condemns an assault on popular blogger Xu Lai (http://blog.ifeng.com/1738385.html) on 14 February and urges the authorities to quickly identify his two assailants. He is being treated for two stab wounds to the stomach in Beijing’s Chaoyang Hospital, where doctors say his life is not in danger. Also known by the blogging name of “Qian Liexan,” Xu was attacked in one of the bathrooms of a Beijing bookshop where he had just given a reading. His assailants reportedly told him they had come to “take revenge.” “We call for a thorough investigation that establishes the motive for this stabbing,” Reporters Without Borders said. “If it turns out that Xu was attacked because of what he has posted online, this act of violence would be a particularly serious and disturbing for all Chinese bloggers and would need to be punished accordingly.” Immediately after giving a reading with the theme of “Xu Lai’s Tastes” in Beijing’s Dan Xiang Jie bookshop, Xu was accosted by two men in the bookshop’s bathroom. One stabbed him twice in the stomach. The other tried to cut off one of his hands with a cleaver. Reporters Without Borders added: “Certain critical observers are reaching a large audience through the Internet. Chinese bloggers are becoming commentators on daily life and this irritates some of their compatriots. Xu’s blog is widely read in China and his celebrity status may have prompted this criminal attack.” One of Xu’s friends, fellow blogger He Caitou, described Xu’s comments as “nuanced.” Others acknowledged that his blog entries were sometimes “annoying” for the authorities. Some said the motive for the attack may also have been jealousy, as Xu has gradually become very well known. China has 298 million Internet users – more than any other country in the world. It is also the world’s biggest prison for cyber-dissidents. A total of 49 people are currently detained for expressing their opposition to the ruling Communist Party in one form or another online. The Internet is closely monitored by the government, which launched a major filtering offensive on 5 January with the declared aim of combating pornography. According to a Reporters Without Borders tally, more than 2,500 news and information websites were blocked last year because of their political content. Article 35 of the Chinese constitution nonetheless guarantees the right to free expression.
