It also found 86% of respondents either have low confidence or no confidence at all that they will be able to achieve their individual financial targets during this financial year.In addition, 96% of respondents say the government has not done enough to support charities losing fundraising income. While available government scheme are making a difference there are gaps in funding: 59% of respondents say the proposed government support will help their charity, but 41% say none of the proposed government schemes will help their charity.The findings have been shared with the Welsh Government by the Chartered Institute of Fundraising’s Chief Executive Peter Lewis in a letter calling for appropriate and equitable funding for Welsh charities.In it, he asks for two streams of funding to be put in place, to ensure that charities can both quickly access funding to deliver services needed now, and to ensure too that Welsh charities are able to play their role in supporting Welsh communities in the longer term.Lewis commented:“Fundraisers across Wales are facing an incredibly challenging time to keep their organisations running, managing the increased demand in services, and raising the funds desperately needed to make it possible.

BOSTON — Jeremy Roenick unfortunately knows a thing or two about a fractured jaw. The former NHL power forward broke his jaw twice during his 20-year career.The first time was in the final regular-season game in 1999 when Roenick was a member of the Phoenix Coyotes. Dallas Stars defenseman Derian Hatcher hit him high behind the net; Hatcher was suspended seven games for the play while Roenick missed six playoff games. In 2004, as a member of the Philadelphia Flyers, Roenick was hit by a Boris Mironov slap shot. He missed 19 games that time.MORE: Bruins defenseman John Moore is the next man upWith Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara suffering a suspected broken jaw in Game 4 of this year’s Stanley Cup Final and his status for Game 5 unknown, Sporting News caught up with Roenick, now an analyst for NBC Sports Network, to get his insights on playing with, and recovering from, the injury.SPORTING NEWS: What was it like playing with a broken jaw?JEREMY ROENICK: Nerve-wracking. To me, it takes a different kind of person, I think, not to really worry too much about your well-being. The bigger part is winning a hockey game, especially a big hockey game.For me, I always knew that I could heal. Healing was never my issue and a face is a face. I’m not shooting with it, I’m not skating with it. Yeah, you could break it worse, but, again, I always thought I had the summer to heal. That was always secondary to me. Zee [Chara] is one of those guys. He’s one of those guys that has old school-type mentalities. I think he understands there’s bigger things that lay ahead rather than getting injured.I’ve always said pain is temporary and pride is forever. They’ll remember you for what you did. The pain is going to go away, and you’re going to forget that you even had that pain, so that was an important thing.SN: Is there a difference between breaking your jaw via a hit or a puck? JR: My first break [from the Hatcher hit], I had four clean breaks. One on the chin [pointing to the mandibular symphysis], two clean breaks on the side [pointing to the mandibular body on his right] and one on other side. They were just clean through. Those things you can just sew up inside and then you lock it down on the outside.My other one was a spider break. It shattered in 23 different places. That is a totally different kind of one to have to come back from. SN: Is the issue [regarding suiting up] more [about] the breathing?JR: Yeah, breathing. I had rubber bands [pointing to his incisors]. When you’re wired and your teeth are slammed shut, it’s really hard to get air in between your teeth. When you have rubber bands, and I don’t know what Zee is doing, if he has anything on, but I was able to spread my teeth just a little bit and that just a little bit allows you to get so much more oxygen in rather than if it’s closed.You know, there’s little breathing ways that you can do when you’re slammed shut — breathing like Popeye breathing, breath inside the back of your mouth and not through the front of it. But to get oxygen, it’s really hard. You find yourself sometimes gasping for as much air as you possibly can and getting the nutrients in you, that’s also another thing. But there’s no question, no question, that I think [Chara will] play [in Game 5] and this building [TD Garden] will go crazy if he plays and I think he’s going to teach a lot of young kids what it takes to be a winner and a professional. read more
22 October 2012 South Africa has been appointed chairperson of the Group of Like Minded Megadiverse Countries (LMMC) for a period of two years. Established in Cancun, Mexico in 2002, the group comprises 17 countries that, while representing less than 10% of the earth’s surface, support more than 70% of its animal and plant species between them. The 17 members are Bolivia, Brazil, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ecuador, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mexico, Peru, Philippines, South Africa, and Venezuela. South Africa ranks third in the world for biological diversity, after Brazil and Indonesia. South Africa’s appointment as chairperson of the group, taking over from the Philippines, was made during the 12th Meeting of the Conference of Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity in India last week. Accepting the nomination, Water and Environmental Affairs Ministers Edna Molewa said South Africa was well aware of the pressures facing the world in the light of “climate change, habitat loss and degradation, over-exploitation and unsustainable use of biological resources, pollution and invasive alien species,” all factors contributing to loss of biodiversity. Molewa urged the LMMC group to increase cooperation, particularly regarding the ratification and implementation of the Nagoya Protocol, as well as the implementation of national biodiversity strategies and action plans. South Africa will host a workshop in 2013 in order to develop a roadmap for the group until 2020. Source: SANews.gov.za read more

VICTORIA – The British Columbia government filed a constitutional lawsuit Tuesday countering an Alberta government bill that would limit fuel being sent to the province.It comes weeks after the B.C. government asked its highest court to decide if it has the right to limit the flow of bitumen in the Trans Mountain pipeline.Alberta Premier Rachel Notley saw some irony in B.C.’s position.“It’s very interesting, on one hand they don’t want our oil and on the other hand they’re suing us to give them our oil,” she told a news conference in Edmonton on Tuesday.The latest legal action further strains an acrimonious relationship between the two provinces over the expansion of the Trans Mountain pipeline.Attorney General David Eby said B.C. is prepared to ask for an injunction and financial damages against Alberta if it restricts the flow of fuel.Notley said the lawsuit is just one of several tactics to create uncertainty over the Kinder Morgan pipeline project.“They must think everybody was born yesterday,” Notley said. “They are still reserving the right to play legal rope-a-dope until the cows come home. That is not a thing we are going to let happen.”Plans to triple the capacity of Kinder Morgan’s existing Trans Mountain pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby have pitted Alberta and the federal government against B.C., which says the risk of a bitumen spill is too great for the province’s environment and economy.Eby said the Alberta and the federal government are causing delays by refusing to accept B.C.’s invitations to join legal cases, or take legal arguments straight to the Supreme Court of Canada where the outcomes are final.The B.C. government has filed a reference case in the provincial Court of Appeal to determine if it has jurisdiction to regulate heavy oil shipments. It also joined two other lawsuits launched by Indigenous groups opposed to the $7.4-billion pipeline project.Eby said the lawsuit filed Tuesday in Alberta’s Court of Queen’s Bench challenges the constitutionality of Alberta’s law because it is intended to punish B.C.“We believe it would be reckless in the extreme and therefore highly unlikely that Alberta will actually attempt to use the powers they granted themselves in Bill 12,” he told a conference call. “If Alberta did take the remarkable step of attempting to use this law, we are prepared to immediately file and injunction. We will not hesitate.”Notley bowed out of a Western premier’s meeting on Wednesday in Yellowknife, saying she could not discuss issues like a national prescription drug plan in the presence of B.C. Premier John Horgan while his government is trying to stop the pipeline project.“Pharmacare does not grow on trees,” Notley said. “In order to protect and improve the things that matter to people, like pharmacare, we need a strong, functioning national economy.”Before he left for the meeting, Horgan said he didn’t expect tensions over the pipeline to dominate discussions among the premiers.Kinder Morgan has ceased all non-essential spending on the project until it receives assurances it can proceed without delays, setting a May 31 deadline for those guarantees.Notley said Alberta and the federal government are both working on plans to ensure the project proceeds. Federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau has offered an indemnity to backstop the pipeline project.B.C.’s nine-page statement of claim alleges the intent of Alberta’s bill is to hurt to the province.“A significant disruption in the supply of gasoline, diesel, and crude oil from Alberta to British Columbia would cause British Columbia irreparable harm,” the document asserts. “In addition to economic harm, a sudden disruption in supply could injure human health and safety in remote communities.” read more
TORONTO – Sidewalk Labs is keen on reviewing and potentially implementing recommendations made by a panel of millennials for the Alphabet Inc.-backed company’s proposed high-tech community in Toronto.The recommendations for the smart city being developed in conjunction with Waterfront Toronto touch on the project’s housing strategy, transit policies, design techniques and even its data and privacy measures, which have been marred in controversy for months because critics believe they lack transparency and safety.The project is meant to develop a swath of prime Toronto waterfront property and outfit it with high-tech innovations that are expected to change how people live, work and play within the smart community and beyond.The 12 panellists chosen by public policy and community advocates spent three months visiting Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Boston, New York and Malmo, Sweden to collect research for the 78-page report they released Friday. They said their goal was to make recommendations that would create an “equitable, inclusive and diverse neighbourhood” that fosters public trust while protecting the privacy of individuals.The panel suggested project organizers address meaningful consent to data collection in public spaces, maintain an open data portal to encourage innovation for the public good and create an independent data trust to manage all data collected.Sidewalks Labs has said it does not intend to own the data it gathers in public spaces and instead will relinquish control of it to an independent organization to be set up and called the Civic Data Trust. The Trust will set the rules around data use, make it open and accessible to people while offering privacy protection and ensure that Sidewalk Labs does not receive any special status or rights when it comes to data access.The panel stopped short of recommending data collected through the project by de-identified at source — a request former Ontario privacy commissioner Ann Cavoukian has long been lobbying for and said Waterfront Toronto recently “expressed no resistance” towards the policy.When asked why it wasn’t specifically touched on, 24-year-old panellist and information studies graduate student Sharly Chan said “this is just one small piece of the puzzle.”“Data is a complex issue, so we can’t cover everything,” she said. “Cavoukian is asking for data to be de-identified at source and we believe we should definitely do this, but (our recommendations) adds a couple of layers to the Civic Data Trust model.’In an statement emailed to The Canadian Press, Sidewalk Labs’ head of policy and communications Micah Lasher said the company was “grateful” for the report.“These recommendations, which correspond closely with public feedback on the Sidewalk Toronto project, will help inform our work as we draft the Master Innovation and Development Plan,” Lasher added.On the real estate front, the panel suggested project leaders provide affordable housing in perpetuity, set ambitious low- and mid-range housing targets and establish an affordable housing fund to champion, finance and operate its developments.The panellists also asked for public art to be infused into the project, outdoor spaces to be built with maximum usage for rain and snow and the city’s transit network to be expanded in a way that ensures it, cycling and walking are more convenient than driving.Chan said she isn’t sure how the project leaders will go about implementing her group’s ideas, but said she expects “we will know a little bit more about that in the future.” read more
