Photo: Kevin Jordan via ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] A spate of violence against Christians has included the murder of the Archdeacon of Eringeti, Ngulongo Year Batsemire of the Anglican Church of the Congo, who was killed for refusing to denounce his faith. The Barnabas Fund reports that he was walking to his fields with his wife when they were surrounded by members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) who demanded he convert to Islam. When he refused, they killed him.He was one of 36 Christians murdered by insurgents on Jan. 29 in the North Kivu region of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Earlier this month, in three days of terror beginning on Feb. 7, another 30 Christians were killed in attacks in the villages of Toko-Toko and Makeke.Read the entire article here.

Localgiving matched funding scheme aims to raise £4m

first_img Online giving platform Localgiving.com has launched its annual Grow Your Tenner matched giving scheme with the aim of raising £4 million for small and local charities.In doing so it also demonstrated the fundraising challenges faced by many local charities. New research by the not-for-profit social enterprise has found that:40% of people in the UK have never donated to a local charity20% of people are unaware that local charities are in need of support27% could not name a local charity in their hometownYet 67% of respondents said that they felt it was important to support their local community.Localgiving conceived this annual campaign to help support local organisations across the UK to raise much needed awareness and funding.Government support for Grow Your TennerGrow Your Tenner was launched this week with the backing of the new Minister for Civil Society, Rob Wilson MP. Donations to local charities of up to £10 will be matched. Indeed, they will be more than doubled if the donor gives using Gift Aid: a £10 donation will generate £21.55 for the beneficiary charity.The Cabinet Office has provided a grant of £250,000 for the national match fund of Grow Your Tenner.Speaking at the launch of the campaign, the Minister said: Advertisement Tagged with: Individual giving matched giving small charities Localgiving matched funding scheme aims to raise £4m Howard Lake | 15 October 2014 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img “Local charities are the lifeblood of communities across the UK and are well placed to understand and react to the needs of local people.“The Government’s matched fund grant for Localgiving’s Grow Your Tenner campaign will enable donations from the public to go even further and support these organisations in the fantastic work that they do.”Challenges faced by local charitiesLocal and small charities account for over 50% of the UK’s voluntary sector, yet they receive only 0.6% of charitable funding.Areas that face the greatest challenge, based on Localgiving’s research, are:East Anglia: 45% of people surveyed had never donated to a local charityScotland: 44% of people survey had never donated to a local charitySouth West: 42% of people surveyed had never donated to a local charityThe most supportive region was the North East: nevertheless, 30% of people there had still never given to a local charity.Marcelle Speller, chairman and founder of Localgiving, said:“Our research highlights the fundamental problem that local charities are facing in the UK. Small charities play a vital role in our communities – from shelters and support groups providing front-line services, to social care networks, environmental organisations and arts societies – they make an incredible difference.“Sadly, many are struggling and in great need of our support. To a small local charity, just £10 can have a genuine impact. Grow Your Tenner is a fantastic opportunity for supporters of local charities to maximise the effect of their giving and be part of something amazing that will help communities right across the country.”[message_box title=”About the survey” color=”blue”]Research was conducted by One Poll online and on mobile amongst 2,000 UK adults in September 2014.

Foreign journalists arrested, Internet blocked

The various methods being used by the Egyptian authorities to obstruct the right to impart news and information are completely unacceptable, the press freedom organization said.The four journalists – Karen Lagon of Le Journal du Dimanche, Adrien Jaulmes of Le Figaro, Sipa agency photographer Albert Facelly (who is working for Le Journal du Dimanche) and a Paris-Match reporter – were arrested early this morning as they were about to cover the demonstrations after Friday prayers in the centre of Cairo and were freed one hour later, Le Figaro editor Philippe Gelie said.Many Egyptian journalists have been physically attacked and arrested since the protests began in Egypt on 25 January (http://en.rsf.org/egypt-journalists-targeted-by-police-27-01-2011,39411.html). Crews working for CNN, the BBC (http://plixi.com/p/73025724) and Al Jazeera have also been attacked by plain-clothes police, who smashed their equipment.Yesterday evening, the Egyptian government disconnected the Internet and the mobile phone network in the country’s biggest cities. Mobile phones and the Internet, especially the social networks Facebook and Twitter, had been playing a key role since 25 January in getting Egyptians to take to the streets for Tunisian-style demonstrations to demand President Hosni Mubarak’s departure.“By blocking the Internet and by attacking and arresting Egyptian and foreign journalists, the Egyptian government is trying both to prevent the protests from being organized and to prevent them from being covered internationally,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said.“As a result, it is currently impossible to know what exactly is happening in Egypt. The authorities are engineering an almost complete news blackout about the crackdown on the street protests that is now taking place.” News News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa News January 22, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

The stratigraphy and geochronology of Adelaide Island

first_imgThe Mesozoic-Cenozoic volcanic arc of the Antarctic Peninsula is represented on Adelaide Island by a sedimentary and volcanic succession intruded by plutons. 40Ar-39 Ar step-heating age spectra have been obtained from volcanic rocks and hornblende separates from sedimentary clasts of plutonic origin. These spectra show evidence for some argon loss, but, in general, have plateau ages which are consistent with the mapped stratigraphy and with other geochronological controls, suggesting that they approximate to original ages. As a result the following events in the evolution of Adelaide Island can be recognized: 1) mostly marine Mesozoic sedimentation, 2) Early Cretaceous (c. 141 Ma) plutonism (recorded in clasts from conglomerates), 3) Cretaceous volcanism, 4) Late Cretaceous (possibly Tertiary) sedimentation, 5) Early Tertiary volcanism, which was acidic in eastern outcrops and intermediate elsewhere, and 6) Eocene intermediate volcanism and deposition of arc-derived conglomerates. Volcanism was possibly coeval with known Palaeocene-Eocene plutonic activity on Adelaide Island (part of the Antarctic Peninsula Batholith) and with volcanism of similar age in northern Alexander Island and the South Shetland Islands. The volcanism on Adelaide Island and the South Shetland Islands, at least, was associated with a westward migration of the Antarctic Peninsula arc.last_img read more
