Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 For many, Memorial Day weekend means cookouts, family gatherings and fun in the sun. Despite the excitement surrounding the “unofficial start of summer,” many accidents occur, and several hospitals in Florida are experiencing longer waits, which could increase over the busy holiday weekend.Accidents often happen due to distractions while preparing food or from poor food handling, such as leaving perishable ingredients out in the sun for too long. Avocado hand has gained some attention in the news and social media recently with many people suffering injuries from cutting through this popular fruit. These accidents serve as a reminder to use care when preparing food, especially during the busy holiday weekend.MedExpress, a neighborhood medical center with 22 locations in Florida, offers a full medical team and is available to treat anyone who has suffered a cut, burn or has a food-borne illness over Memorial Day weekend. Medical experts suggest following these safety practices for an injury and illness-free holiday weekend:Never hold a food item when slicing down, or into itKeep knives sharp, as dull knives are more likely to slip when cuttingKeep young children at least three feet away from the grill area while it is in useFor the past four years, MedExpress has consistently seen an increase in patient visits the day after Memorial Day, specifically for lacerations as well as muscular and skeletal injuries.

Localgiving awarded £100,000 in Magic Little Grants to 205 local charities between September 2017 and January this year.Magic Little Grants were for £250 or £500, specifically aimed at projects that seek to increase participation in exercise and healthy activities. Applicants had to have an annual income under £50,000 or be in their first year of operation, with preference given to projects that encouraged social cohesion and helped vulnerable people overcome barriers to participation in physical activities.On top of their grant, all successful organisations receive access to Localgiving’s online fundraising platform, fundraising resources and regular match fund campaigns.A wide variety of groups have been supported over the last five months, ranging from exercise classes for stroke survivors to outdoor, to adventure activities for disadvantaged young people.The programme distributed small grants on behalf of grant makers to local charities and community groups with a 10-minute application process to make it easier for grassroots organisations to access the funding they need to launch or strengthen their services. This round of grants was distributed in association with the Postcode Community Trust.Ceri Mugford, Charity Membership & Support Executive at Localgiving said:“We are thrilled at the success of our Magic Little Grants programme. Our research has shown that finding suitable, accessible funding can be a real challenge for grassroots organisations. This scheme was designed to address this issue – making the application process as simple and intuitive as possible, and making the grants unrestricted – therefore enabling awardees to use their funding for core costs. We look forward to expanding the programme in the future and exploring new opportunities to support the local voluntary sector.”Localgiving is hoping to run Magic Little Grants again but this has yet to be confirmed.Main image: Capoeira Conviver – a Magic Little Grants recipient Advertisement Localgiving distributes £100,000 in Magic Little Grants funding AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 Tagged with: grants Localgiving small charities 236 total views, 3 views today Melanie May | 2 February 2018 | News 237 total views, 4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis11 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

printThe women’s basketball team enters the 2017 season looking to reach the postseason after missing it last season for the first time in head coach Raegan Pebley’s three seasons. The Horned Frogs return 10 players from last season, including three starters, senior Toree Thompson, junior Jordan Moore and sophomore Kianna Ray. Junior Amy Okonkwo, who averaged 10.2 PPG and started 14 games, also returns. However, the team lost their top two scoring and assist leaders from last season in Jada Butts and AJ Alix, who each averaged over 12 points a game.Pebley said in a press conference on Tuesday that the gap left by Butts and Alix at the guard position will be filled by a committee of players, naming freshman Lauren Heard and sophomores Amber Ramirez, Kianna Ray, and Jayde Woods specifically. Pebley expressed her excitement for Heard, who led the team in scoring in their exhibition against Texas Wesleyan. “[Heard] had a really good showing for the first time she’s put on the uniform at Schollmaier Arena,” she said. The team also returns all 5 players from its 2016 recruiting class plus redshirt freshman Adeola Akomolafe and Oregon transfer Woods, giving them a total of seven sophomores on the 2017 roster. The group of sophomores are led by Ray and Ramirez. Ray started 28 games last season. Ramirez was the second-ranked guard in her recruiting class and a member of Team USA, but missed seven games as a freshman due to an injury.“Kianna Ray has developed some confidence,” Pebley said. “Confidence as a scorer and we are going to continue to look for her to establish herself that way.” Ray averaged 6.7 points per game last season. Pebley also spoke highly about Ramirez. “She is in some of the best shape she has been in in a long time and our team has been able to really gel with her,” she said. Ramirez missed summer practices last season due to USA Basketball commitments and the preseason due to an injury. She totaled seven points and six assists as the starting point guard in the exhibition against Texas Wesleyan. The Horned Frogs went 4-0 on their August trip to Australia, gaining an extra 10 practices and experience for their young core. Pebley called the trip “a chance to continue to grow them up,” as the seven sophomores look toward bigger roles in 2017.“Ten practices is like a third of our entire preseason, so we got to add that on top of our preparation and then had the competition as well,” Pebley said. Woods, who is ineligible to play until the end of the fall semester, impressed the coaching staff during their overseas trip. “Jayde is really a special player. She is tough, physically, just mean, and I love that” Pebley said. “Not only was she a great defensive presence for us but also a really great scorer. She brought in the mid-range shot we were lacking last year.”The team will be playing in a Big 12 Conference that features four teams in the initial AP Top 25 rankings, with Texas and Baylor ranked No. 2 and No. 3 overall. “This is a league that could get six or seven into the NCAA tournament when it is all said and done,” Pebley said. “It is one of our strongest top to bottom years that we’ve had since I’ve been a part of the league.” Pebley also commended her team’s offseason focus. “This group is all staying really committed to what we’re doing, the mission at hand, to each other, and I think speaks volumes to the chemistry in the locker room right now,” she said. The Horned Frogs officially open their season on Saturday against the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles at 2 p.m. in Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.

A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Dinesh Maheshwari & Hrishikesh Roy issued notice on the petition by a 94 year old and granted leave to the petitioner to amend the petition on the aspect of the restricted issue.The applicant praying for intervention now claims to be an umbrella organisation which covers within its ambit several organisations set up in several states across the nation consisting of the victims of the said Emergency Period. The Applicant Committee says that it has been actively taking steps before the appropriate authorities for several years now to ensure that their members shall receive the proper status in the society for their sufferings at the hands of the erstwhile government. “The Applicant Committee has been at the forefront of ensuring welfare of the ‘Loktantra Senanis’, i.e. their member victims, and in pursuance of such a purpose have made several representations, both at the State level as well as the Centre level to ensure that the Loktantra Senanis are provided with their well-deserved status and recognition”, it is averred.It is submitted that over 1,10,000 people from across the Nation were illegally detained during the darkest era of the Indian Democracy, i.e. during the emergency of 1975-1977.All of them were brutally tortured, both mentally and physically, whereafter, many were left with permanent injuries on their body and/or on their psyche. Bones were broken, genetelia were hammered, people were made to lay on ice bricks for hours, and several other brutalities were commonplace in the holding cells in the jails of the Nation during the said period.It is further submitted that several states such as Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Chhattisgarh, Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, etc. have provided to such victims pension as well as medical help, travelling allowances, and other benefits and formally recognised them as being the ‘Loktantra Senanis’ of the Nation, thus, imparting upon them the honour which displayed the State’s recognition of their suffering but also their Herculean strength and courage, which they demonstrated during the impugned period of Emergency. “In fact, all the above states have also proceeded to publish notifications in this regard. However, these facilities were being intermittently provided and were not provided in a consistent manner and often taken away altogether due to the politics in the State as per the convenience of the Party in power at any given time. For instance, Pension and Honours were withdrawn after being bestowed in the States of Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra merely due to the change of the ruling Party in the State”, it is urged.It is advanced that in Madhya Pradesh, it was only in the year 2018 that such Honours and Pension came to be reinstated by virtue of the Madhya Pradesh Loktantra Senani Samman Adhiniyam, 2018. However, in the other two States as aforementioned where such honours were withdrawn, the same have not been reinstated till date.It is submitted that these people forming part of the Applicant organisation are those who fought for the preservation of “the democratic roots of our Nation, a Nation that every Indian today can be proud of”. It is the submission of the Applicant that had it not been for the struggle of these Loktantra Senanis, then perhaps, “the Nation that we see today could never have existed”. “This has even been recognised by the erstwhile Prime Minister of the Nation, Sh. Morarji Desai”, it is said.It is also stated that the various High Courts have also recognised the plight of the Applicant members and have held that it is the moral and social responsibility of the State and the society to take care of, look after and recognise and honour people participating in and suffering in social movements for the public and National cause.It is submitted that the All India Loktantra Senani Joint Action Committee had organised protests in Delhi -Hunger strike (Anshan) at Rajghat and Protest demonstration at Jantar Mantar on 4th& 5th December, 2019 which was participated by and attended by over 2000 Loktantra Senanis coming from 19 States of India. The Joint Action Committee’s Charter of demands and Memorandum were collected by Senior Police officers and Intelligence Branch people and were also directly submitted to the Prime Minister’s office and Home Minister’s office. Similar exercise was also done at Chief Minister and Rajyapal levels at various States.It is advanced that ten States have recognized the Loktantra Senanis/ Applicant members and have also extended Pension or Sanman Nidhi to them from Rs. 15,000/- to Rs. 25,000/- per month plus free health and travelling passes. In the said ten States, over 50,000 Loktantra Senanis were beneficiaries.”On the other hand, in the other seventeen States the Applicant members are still suffering. It is further pertinent to note that many of the Applicant members have died and many are in their sunset period. At present, there are estimated 50,000 emergency survivors who are suffering physically, psychologically, due to loss of business, service, career, source of income etc. due to the imposition and atrocities inflicted during the emergency and have not been able to recover from the trauma till date”, it is contended.Next Story
FBI(MEDFORD, Ore.) — Authorities are searching for a 2-year-old Oregon boy who is missing after his parents were found dead in a vehicle in an apparent murder-suicide, authorities said.Aiden Salcido was not with his parents, Daniel Salcido and Hannah Janiak, when they were found dead this week in Montana, according to a press release from the FBI on Friday night. Daniel Salcido, 21, was found with an “apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head,” while 24-year-old Janiak was believed to have been shot in the head.“Investigators are greatly concerned for Aiden’s welfare and are asking for the public’s help in locating him safely and expeditiously,” the press release said.Salcido and Janiak were wanted by authorities after they were convicted in a burglary case, according to the FBI. The two were reported missing on June 11 after Janiak failed to show up at the Jackson County Jail, located in Medford, Oregon, to begin her sentence in that case.Felony warrants were subsequently issued for both.In searching for the two, investigators discovered that the last activity for Janiak’s financial records was made on June 3 and 4. Janiak, Salcido, and Aiden were all caught on surveillance footage together making the purchases at a Walmart in Medford.Nearly two months later, on Wednesday, officers in Montana stopped a car with an Oregon license plate, the FBI said. The passengers were discovered to be Salcido and Janiak, but the two fled before an arrest could be made.Officers pursued the couple and were able to spike their tires, forcing the vehicle to come to a stop.When the officers approached, both Salido and Janiak were found dead.The family of the couple, who was not married, said the three were homeless and would camp in Medford, according to authorities. Family members also described Janiak as a good mother who suffered from mental health issues.Medford police and the FBI are now searching for Aiden and asking for the public’s help in identifying where they may have been camping.Mike Budreau, the spokesman for Medford police, told ABC News Saturday that detectives have received multiple tips that they’re following up on.Anyone with information on his whereabouts or information on where the family had been staying during the time they were reported missing is asked to contact Medford police at (541) 774-2258.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

ABC NewsBY: KARMA ALLEN, ABC News(NEW YORK) — New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo has dedicated the East River State Park in Brooklyn to Marsha P. Johnson, making it country’s first state park to honor an LGBTQ person, according to the state.Cuomo made the announcement on Monday, on what would have been the transgender civil rights icon’s 75th birthday.“I’m proud to announce the dedication of East River State Park in Brooklyn to #MarshaPJohnson. Today, Marsha P. Johnson State Park becomes the first State Park to honor an LGBTQ person,” Cuomo tweeted. “NY is indebted to her for her brave advocacy and relentless fight for LGBTQ equality.”The state plans to improve the park’s facilities and install public art celebrating Johnson’s life and her role in the advancement of LGBTQ rights, according to a statement, which called the move the largest investment in the park’s history.Johnson, an early and outspoken advocate for transgernder women of color, is widely credited with helping instigate the Stonewall uprising in 1969.New York City police officers raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in Manhattan’s Greenwich Village neighborhood, on June 28, 1969, to enforce a discriminatory law that made it illegal to serve alcohol to gay people. Johnson and others fought back, helping spawn the modern LGBTQ civil rights movement.Johnson founded the Street Transgender Action Revolutionaries (STAR) — a group aimed at helping homeless transgender youth — before she died tragically at the age of 46 in 1992, when her body was found floating in the Hudson River. Her death was initially ruled a suicide, but police reopened the investigation in 2012 amid calls from her family, who claimed foul play.Gov. Cuomo said the state wanted to honor Johnson’s work to make sure that her memory lives on forever.“Too often, the marginalized voices that have pushed progress forward in New York and across the country go unrecognized, making up just a fraction of our public memorials and monuments,” Cuomo said in a statement. “Marsha P. Johnson was one of the early leaders of the LGBTQ movement, and is only now getting the acknowledgement she deserves. Dedicating this state park for her, and installing public art telling her story, will ensure her memory and her work fighting for equality lives on.”New York Lt. Gov. Kathy Hochul said that the current social climate made this the right time to honor Johnson, who she called an “LGBTQ hero.”“With the COVID-19 pandemic and Black Lives Matter movement, now more than ever we must continue the fight for LGBTQ equality and racial justice in our society,” Hochul said. “We have come a long way with the passage of GENDA [the Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act] and legalizing gestational surrogacy, but we still have more work to do to combat division and hate and achieve true equality for all.”The park’s dedication comes as protesters across the country call on institutions to confront long-standing systemic racism and discrimination.Last year, New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill apologized for the violent Stonewall raid amid mounting pressure from local politicians and leaders.“I’m certainly not going to be an expert of what happened at Stonewall. I do know what happened should not have happened,” O’Neill said at the department’s inaugural pride safety briefing last June. “The actions taken by the NYPD were wrong, plain and simple.”ABC News’ Tony Morrison contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.
