Asking donors what they think

first_img Ian Kerr of Midas Charity Appeals suggests that listening to donors does, of course, pay off.“A few months ago I went back to an ex-client hoping for new business. I was dripping smiles and bonhomie until they said “You only taught us one thing – ask our donors advice on everything!”“One particular donor suggested that a small plaque was put in the room his trust paid for. He explained that he did not want recognition, but others might, and the plaque would be a catalyst. Others did, and my smile returned!” Advertisement Howard Lake | 23 October 2002 | News Asking donors what they think Ian Kerr would be interested in your ideas.

Press freedom worsens with jamming of radio station and Internet censorship

first_img Burundian appeal court upholds prison sentences for four journalists June 5, 2020 Find out more November 27, 2020 Find out more BurundiAfrica October 21, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders expressed concern today at the sharp decline of press freedom in Burundi over the past month with the government’s censorship of a radio station and close surveillance of the Internet.”The actions of the authorities are seriously threatening the independent media and use of the Internet,” the organisation’s secretary-general Robert Ménard said.  “It is starting to look like systematic harassment.  Burundi’s radio stations are the most energetic and professional in the region and their closure or weakening would be a big step backwards for the country.  We hope the authorities realise this and do not do anything to seriously harm them,” he said.The privately-owned station Radio publique africaine (RPA) announced on 28 August the suspension of all its broadcasts in protest against the jamming of them, especially news programmes, by the telecommunications regulatory body, the ARCT, which is controlled by the defence ministry.ARCT director Col. Nestor Misigaro said the jamming had been done as part of an attempt to get radio station owners to pay their annual licence fees, which several stations, including the government-owned one, had not paid.But RPA chief Alexis Sinduhije said mention of the licence fee was “just an excuse” since all radio stations owed money to the ARCT but only RPA had been jammed.  The country’s media consider the $5,000 annual licence fee for a commercial station to be excessive.Two days earlier, on 26 August, the National Communications Council (CNC) forbade the Internet websites of Burundian media to post “documents or communiqués of political organisations preaching hatred and violence.”  One of the sites targeted was the website Rugamba, of the Net Press agency, which carries opposition statements .  The CNC has threatened to shut down Net Press unless Rugamba stops “all postings of documents or statements undermining peace and public security.”The CNC banned the fortnightly magazine Panafrika on 30 July for publishing what it said was a “subversive and extremist” issue.  The magazine’s issue no. 57 carried an interview with former energy and mining minister Mathias Hitimana, who was recently sacked.  In the article, headed “Buyoya wants to bury us alive,” Hitimana strongly criticised President Pierre Buyoya’s “arbitrary and dictatorial methods.”The Burundian Journalists’ Association, ABJ, attacked the ban on the magazine, noting that suspension of a publication was normally the job of the communications ministry, not the CNC.On 22 July, the government also banned publication or broadcasting of news about soldiers being killed by rebel forces.  “Such news only helps the rebels,” an army spokesman said.  Interior minister Salvator Ntihabose added that journalists must “choose between the rebels on the one hand and the government and the army on the other.” Organisation Receive email alerts to go furthercenter_img Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa News News RSF_en Follow the news on Burundi BurundiAfrica Four Burundian journalists complete 12 months in arbitrary detention August 29, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Press freedom worsens with jamming of radio station and Internet censorshiplast_img read more

Bakery brands jump on eclipse-themed marketing

first_imgWarrens Bakery had some fun with Stephen Hawking’s book, The Universe In A Nutshell. Perhaps the biggest winner however, was  the Jaffa Cake, as the internet took a nostalgic trip back to that famous Jaffa Cake advert of the late 90s – after being inspired by the eclipse.The UK will not experience a solar eclipse on this scale again until 2026. A number of bakery brands have created lunar-themed adverts to promote their products, off the back of today’s eclipse.The hashtag #Eclipse2015 trended on Twitter across the UK, as the first solar eclipse since 1999 was visible throughout Britain and northern Europe.Blinded by the scale of the landmark event, bakers took to the internet to tweet and share their eclipse-related artwork.Oreo took this ploy to the next level, by launching its #OreoEclipse campaign. The stunt plays on the eclipse to show life through an ‘Oreo lens’ as the Mondelez-owned brand attempts to shift perceptions of Oreo from a biscuit you can play with, under its Play with Oreo campaign.The largest scale element of the #Oreoeclipse campaign saw the production of the first-ever translucent cover wrap of The Sun newspaper. The wrap was printed in black to ’eclipse’ the publication and two eclipse-themed, translucent Oreo ads will also appear in the paper itself.British Baker has gathered the best of the rest of the eclipse-themed adverts.center_img Pieminister also got involved with its clever pun: total eclipse of the tart.last_img read more

Western diet may increase risk of death after prostate cancer diagnosis

first_img Read Full Story After a prostate cancer diagnosis, eating a diet higher in red and processed meat, high-fat dairy foods, and refined grains—known as a Western diet—may lead to a significantly higher risk of both prostate cancer-related mortality and overall mortality compared with eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, fish, whole grains, and healthy oils, according to a new study from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.The study, which appears online June 1, 2015 in the journal Cancer Prevention Research, offers insight on how diet may help improve survivorship for the nearly three million men living with prostate cancer in the U.S.“There is currently very little evidence to counsel men living with prostate cancer on how they can modify their lifestyle to improve survival. Our results suggest that a heart-healthy diet may benefit these men by specifically reducing their chances of dying of prostate cancer,” said Jorge Chavarro, assistant professor of nutrition and epidemiology at Harvard Chan School and senior author of the study.last_img read more
