The charity is proud of its Gloucestershire roots – it was set up by a group of parents from Stroud after a number of meningitis cases in the area caused concern amongst its residents – and feels that Dr Brain ‘s involvement in its work creates a strong connection to the people of Gloucestershire.Dr Brain, OBE QPM BA PhD FRSA CCMI, has been Chief Constable of Gloucestershire constabulary since 2001 and is a well respected figure of the Gloucestershire community. He is also known nationally for his work, particularly after the flooding and water emergency in Gloucestershire last summer, where his force executed an impressive rescue effort.The Meningitis Trust’s Chief Executive, Sue Davie, is thrilled to have Dr Brain’s support for the work of the Trust. She says; “Having Dr Brain onboard is really important to us and the work we do. Meningitis and meningococcal septicaemia are diseases that can affect anyone, of any age, at any time, and we work to raise awareness of the disease and the impact it can have on the individual, their family, friends and even whole communities. Having the support of such an influential and well respected figure, will enable us to reach wider audiences and give a boost to our work”Dr Brain said: “I am always happy to help support and promote the good work of Gloucestershire based organisations, but I am particularly proud to give my patronage to the Meningitis Trust. Meningitis brings devastation to the lives of thousands of individuals, and their friends and families, in the UK each year. These people need our help and support, so the work the Trust carries out on their behalf is absolutely vital. If I can help to progress this work in the future, it will be an honour.”A recent survey carried out by the Meningitis Trust indicated that as many as 4,516 people living in Gloucestershire today have had either viral or bacterial meningitis. That means in an average size town with a population of 250,000 people, around 2,000 residents will have had some form of meningitis. Every year, there will, on average, be another 36 cases.Many people survive meningitis, but thousands are left with debilitating after-effects including loss of sight and hearing, brain damage, epilepsy, learning difficulties, and where septicaemia (blood poisoning) has occurred, limb loss and scarring. The impact of the disease can change lives in a matter of minutes.More than 20,000 people are helped by the Meningitis Trust each year through a freephone 24-hour helpline (0800 028 1828), counselling, home visits, one-to-one contact and community support. The Trust also gives away more than £130,000 every year in financial support grants and distributes millions of leaflets, posters, symptoms cards, information sheets and other materials which raise awareness of meningitis.– Ends –Editor’s Notes:For further information please contact the Meningitis Trust press office on 01453 769018/768006/769030 or visit the website at www.meningitis-trust.orgSurvey carried out online by CCB fastMap Ltd, London. Of 22,000 adults, reflecting the UK’s population in terms of age and geography, 3,600 people responded.About the Meningitis TrustAs many as 500,000 people living in the UK today have had either viral or bacterial meningitis. And up to 10 million adults in the UK – one adult in every four – knows of someone who has had the disease. The Meningitis Trust, a registered charity, helps and supports everyone struggling to cope with the impact of meningitis through the following professional free services:” a freephone 24-hour nurse-led helpline – 0800 028 18 28” counselling” home visiting” financial grants to fund special equipment; respite care; therapeutic activities; special training; travel and accommodation costs.The Meningitis Trust is the UK’s longest established meningitis charity and is completely reliant on voluntary donations to continue its work.About meningitisMeningitis is life-threatening and affects the membranes surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis and associated septicaemia (blood poisoning) can kill within hours and can affect anyone at any time. Those most at risk are children under the age of five, teenagers and young adults, and people over 55.Symptoms commonly include fever with cold hands and feet, vomiting, headache, stiff neck, dislike of bright lights, joint or muscle pain, drowsiness, confusion, and, in babies, a dislike of being handled, pale blotchy skin, an unusual cry and a blank staring expression. Both adults and children may also have a rash that doesn’t fade under pressure (a sign of septicaemia). Symptoms may appear in any order and some may not appear at all.For more information visit the******************************************************************The Meningitis Trust, Head Office, Fern House, Bath Road, Stroud Gloucestershire GL5 3TJ, United KingdomCompany limited by Guarantee Registered in England and Wales number 2469130 Registered Charity number 803016 Registered Charity in Scotland number SC037790 Chief Constable becomes patron of Gloucestershire-based charity Tagged with: Recruitment / peoplelast_img read more

Occupy protests mark movement’s 2nd anniversary in NYC

first_imgNYC, Sept. 17.WW photo: Caleb MaupinNew York — Hundreds of people took to the streets Sept. 17 to celebrate the second anniversary of  Occupy Wall Street. The protests began at 8 a.m., when Sumumba Sobukwe, the leader of Occu-Evolve, along with the People’s Power Assembly, held a picket line in front of the McDonalds restaurant facing Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan. Hundreds of cops with shotguns, metal barricades and nightsticks had already assembled all across the Wall Street area.With a large foam board and numerous signs supporting the striking fast-food workers around the country, a small crowd chanted, “We can’t survive on $7.25!” As the press gathered, activists from the People’s Power Assembly and Occupy Wall Street went into the McDonald’s and delivered a rose to each of the workers behind the counter as a gesture of solidarity. People’s Power Assembly representatives announced that a large action demanding a $15 minimum wage would take place on Oct. 24.Then Occupy Wall Street and Occu-Evolve forces gathered in Zuccotti Park and held a press conference. People spoke about Occupy Wall Street and the need for more protests and rallies like those OWS had carried out. A postal workers’ representative spoke about the need to halt the closing of post offices. Labor leaders addressed the crowd, as did journalist Chris Hedges, who urged the crowd to help “stop the corporate security state.”As the press conference closed, the crowd began to march from Zuccotti Park uptown to Washington Square. Workers World Party members unfurled a banner reading, “Expand Occupy Wall Street, Shut Down Capitalism, Fight for Socialism!”As the crowd proceeded through Manhattan, the police began picking people out of the crowd and arresting them for wearing masks. The arrests were violent — police throwing people to the ground — while Occupy activists gathered around chanting, “Shame! Shame! Shame!”At Washington Square Park, the crowd held a rally against the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a new “free trade” agreement the imperialists are discussing that would have disastrous effects on the environment and on working people. During the rally, Workers World Party set up a literature table and talked to many young people about socialism, communism and the need for a revolutionary party.Later that evening, some labor unions held a rally near the United Nations. The rally called for a “Robin Hood tax,” which would tax the ultrarich to halt planned cuts in jobs and services. Several leaders of the labor unions as well as activists with the AIDS group “Housing Works” were arrested when they held a planned civil disobedience action by blocking an intersection.During all the actions throughout the day, members of Fight Imperialism — Stand Together were present. A new publication of NYC FIST entitled “Young & Furious” was handed out throughout the crowd. Hundreds of copies of Workers World newspaper were also distributed.Two years after the historic occupation of Zuccotti Park, millions of people are still filled with outrage about the economic situation. The battle cry, “We are 99%,” has not faded away. Workers World Party continues to stand with the Occupy movement and push for more uprisings against the horrors of capitalism in its monopolist, imperialist stage.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Tales of swimming holes and rebukin’ sticks

I ran and jumped on the running board and climbed in headfirst through the open window.“You can go if you don’t holler out,” Daddy said.When we were riding out in the country and Daddy would see a rabbit hopping across the road, he would shoot it. I didn’t like that. Sometimes I’d holler out and scared the rabbit so it wouldn’t be a stew. Daddy didn’t like that.Daddy didn’t drive down close to the fishpond. He stopped back in the hardwood grove and got out. I slid up and sat in the open window so I could see good. Tales of swimming holes and rebukin’ sticks Daddy came flying in the backdoor and tore through the house and came back with his shotgun.“Where’re you going with that gun?” Mama asked in a high voice.Daddy said a bunch of the mill hands were swimming in the fishpond and Mamie Lee was right in the middle of them.

They screamed and hollered and came splashing out of the fishpond. Then, they scattered like rabbits, running in the woods in all different directions. I didn’t know if we would ever see Mamie Lee again. I didn’t know she could run so fast.Daddy shot a few more warning shots, he called them, before he got back in the truck.“Why’d you do that, Daddy? Why did you? How come?’I was good at asking questions.Daddy said that the fishpond was full of water moccasins and, if one bit you, you’d die before anybody could get you to the doctor.I knew the fishpond was full of water moccasins because I went fishing with my grandmother all the time. Those ol’ snakes would come slicing through the water right at us but Mommie would just slap at them with her fishing pole and drive them back.“Instruments of the devil” was what my other granny called snakes. “Just rebuke them and they’ll go away.”The next morning Mamie Lee came to keep my baby brother and she said Daddy just about scared all of them to death. They thought somebody was trying to shoot them like ducks on the water.Mama told Mamie that Daddy didn’t want them to get snake bitten and die.“I was havin’ the best time I ever had,” Mamie said and she sounded real sad that she wouldn’t be going swimming anymore. At least, not when Daddy was around.Well, I wasn’t sure that I’d had the best time I’d ever had and I wanted to have it. I wanted to go swimming in the pond and have it. Betty Kay wanted to have her best time, too.So, off we went dragging a rebuking stick along. We weren’t scared of any ol’ water moccasins. If one came after us, we’d slap the water and rebuke him away.We were having a real good time splashing around in the fishpond “shallows,” as my granny called them, when, all of a sudden, somebody yelled for us to get ourselves out of that water.It was Pink, an old man that lived on my granddaddy’s place and looked after the cows.“Get outta there!” he kept yelling as he came stumbling down the bank. “Get out! Get! Get!”Pink was hoppin’ mad and I couldn’t get out of that water fast enough.He said he was taking me home to Mama. Betty Kay took off running from him.Pink grabbed hold of my ear and held on to it all the way to the house. It hurt.But not as much as when Mama got through with me with the rebuking switch she kept on the top of the refrigerator all the time.That was the worst rebukin’ I ever got and I’m waiting still for the best time I ever had.

SFL – acquisition of 2020-built VLCC with long term charter

first_img SFL has agreed to acquire a newbuild 308,000dwt crude oil carrier. (Credit: Adam Radosavljevic from Pixabay.) SFL has agreed to acquire a newbuild 308,000 dwt crude oil carrier, or “VLCC”, in combination with a 7-year bareboat charter, adding nearly $60 million to SFL’s fixed rate charter backlog.The vessel is expected to be delivered from the shipyard in China in the second quarter, and will have full cash flow effect in Q3 2020. The net purchase price will be $65 million, which is significantly below current broker estimates for VLCC resales, effectively providing SFL with a very attractive risk profile.SFL’s chartering counterparty, an affiliate of the Landbridge Group, has secured a 3-year sub charter to an oil major, providing good cash flow visibility. There will be purchase options for the charterer during the charter period, first time after three years, and at the end of the charter there is a purchase obligation.SFL will fund the acquisition with a $50 million non recourse bank debt facility at very attractive terms, and net cash flow after debt service during the first three years is estimated to more than $4 million per year on average.Ole B. Hjertaker, CEO of SFL Management AS, said in a comment: “Amidst the recent market volatility, we see attractive investment opportunities in our core markets. Some of the best investments can be made when the general market is less competitive, and staying focused and able to execute on accretive growth opportunities through the market cycles is a key differentiating factor.With a versatile toolbox, including time charters, bareboat charters and senior financing structures, SFL can provide prospective customers with competitive tailor made solutions, whilst at the same time creating shareholder value on the back of our strong balance sheet and our unique access to attractively priced capital.” Source: Company Press Release SFL will fund the acquisition with a $50 million non recourse bank debt facility at very attractive terms, and net cash flow after debt servicelast_img read more

The presentation began with a brief history about the Callery Pear tree located at the World Trade Center site that survived the catastrophic events on 9/11/01.Fourth grade students were entranced by the pictures and stories shared with them from this monumental day. The presentation related to a previous reading and writing lesson on the story “The Survivor Tree: Inspired by a True Story” by Cheryl Somers Aubin. A historical reference to these events comprised their current events lesson for the week. Students participated in a special question and answer session with the instructors after the presentation concluded. After returning to their classrooms, students worked with their homeroom teacher to plan a drawing and writing activity involving their own stories about “survival.”“This was an inspirational day for the students,” says Elementary Supervisor, Dr. Danielle Garzon. “It is essential for students to make the connection that out of tragedy, new beginnings can flourish, such as what has happened with this tree.” 1 / 2  Fourth graders at Huber Street School learn about the 9/11 Survivor Tree.

Jessica Hensle, first grade teacher at Clarendon School, was the liaison for collecting all donated items. There were twelve boxes at 40 pounds each, picked up by the United Postal Service. Thank you to everyone for their donations and participation in the “Help Harvey” drive.
