Because it primarily supports small to medium size charities, many without a professional fundraiser, the Foundation was keen to ensure that its website succeeded in conveying all the necessary information and advice on submitting a grant application.Louise Harley, head of communications at the Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales, said: “We want to make the application process very straightforward by providing as much information as possible in advance of the initial call to us, thus maximising charities’ use of their time and chances of success. By profiling previously funded charities we hope to inspire other charities through reading about successful work.” Advertisement  47 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

Their main weapons are mobile phones and the Internet. Help by sharing this information July 25, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sharing information kills SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists Receive email alerts To pay tribute to the unprecedented number of citizen journalists who have lost their lives to send out pictures of the uprising, Reporters Without Borders and its advertising agency JWT Paris, through a unique live Tweet, are bringing to life the experiences of people who find ways of circulating information in the midst of danger. The campaign image shows a lifeless hand covered in earth and blood. Next to it, there is a smart phone with a QR code on its illuminated screen. When it is scanned, a Twitter-style application starts up, taking the user into the live tweet of an imaginary citizen journalist in the midst of the conflict in Homs. The application shows his final minutes in detail through his feed. Events gradually take an unexpected turn until the final outcome. Known as #DeadTweet, the press and poster campaign uses the QR code to raise awareness about citizens’ efforts to cover conflicts in countries where authoritarian governments impose a media blackout by trying to keep out foreign journalists. When journalists can no longer do their job, these citizens are an essential information link and play their part in informing the world, sometimes paying the price with their lives. At the end of the experience, a short awareness-raising message appears and the user can share it on social networks and help spread the message to as many people as possible.

Masterworks Choral Ensemble Presents 35th Anniversary Concert

first_imgFacebook4Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Masterworks Choral Ensemble Join a gala celebration April 16, 2016 as Masterworks Choral Ensemble presents its 35th Anniversary concert.  The choir returns to its roots with a performance of choral and orchestral masterpieces that launched the community choir in 1981.   It’s a celebration not just of a milestone anniversary, but thanks to strong donor support, an orchestra will once again be sharing the stage with the choir.To top if off, Gary Witley, long-time Artistic Director of the choir as well as a founding member, will be honored with a “Salute to the Arts” Award for his many contributions to the music scene and music education in the South Sound.  Gary has taught music for over 35 years, has written and performed many musicals with his students and has taught over 1,000 students on band and string instruments.Gary Witley , long-time artistic director and founding member. will be honored with a “Salute to the Arts” award.The April performance will include works from the Baroque, Classical and Contemporary periods.  For many of the composers’ works highlighted in this concert – Vivaldi, Mozart and Telemann, and Pergolesi, who all lived in the 18th century – the choir’s inception thirty-five years ago is barely the blink of an eye. Vivaldi’s luscious Magnificat was written in the early 1700’s and features glorious choral singing and an orchestra composed primarily of stringed instruments including violins, violas and cellos along with two oboes.  Mozart wrote Ave Verum Corpus in 1791 at the request of a choirmaster for Mozart to write something for his choir to sing.  Written in just 6 days, the work has become an enduring classic.  Pergolesi wrote both sacred and secular works and his Magnificat is notable for its simple beauty and melodic interest.The contemporary work featured is by Howard Hanson, one of the first 20th century American composers to achieve widespread acclaim.  Hanson’s style is anchored firmly in the mid-20th century with complex harmonies and strong rhythm.  The work was inspired by excerpts from two poems by Walt Whitman, another quintessential  American.The orchestra performing in this concert has been specially commissioned by well-known Olympia musician, Ian Edlund.  A MCE Salute to the Arts Recipient, Edlund is a former Maestro of the Olympia Symphony Orchestra, cello player and teacher, retired music specialist from North Thurston School District, and a friend to organizations performing music in the region.  Several of the musicians contracted by Edlund are also members of the relatively new South Puget Sound Community Orchestra. Formed in 2014, the orchestra has deep roots in the community.  One of the violinists on stage will be Austin Schlichting, a 3rd generation family member of Olympia-area musicians.  Some longtime Olympia residents will recognize the name from Fred Schlichting, a former Maestro of the Olympia Symphony Orchestra.Angi Swan accompanies the Masterworks Choral Ensemble during rehearsal.The concert includes a performance by Vadim Pascua on piano.  A student of piano teacher Vera Dvorak, and a junior at Olympia High School, Mr. Pascua won MCE’s Youth Music Competition in the High School Category.The concert begins at 7:30pm. Tickets for the concert are $25 for adults, $21 for Seniors, and $13 for Students, and are on sale now. You may purchase tickets online at Masterworks secure website MCE.org, as well as at the Washington Center Box Office, 512 Washington Street SE, Olympia, 360-753-8586, or online via the Washington Center’s website: Olytix.org.For more information contact: Sally Alhadeff; 360-349-3635; [email protected]last_img read more

See why Michael Vaughan says India still isn’t a ‘great team’ in Tests

first_imgAdvertisement tndNBA Finals | Brooklyn VsinwWingsuit rodeo📽Sindre Er( IG: @_aubreyfisher @imraino ) 3w9Would you ever consider trying this?😱yb5hCan your students do this? 🌚5sg32zRoller skating! Powered by Firework Former England skipper Michael Vaughan, heavily criticised Team India for their dismal performance against New Zealand in the ongoing test series – saying that the No.1 Test team needs to win games in England and New Zealand to be considered great! The first day of the second Test at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch on Saturday, saw the guests suffer yet again through the hands of speedster Kyle Jamieson, who picked up a five-for as India were bundled out for 242. Even though Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara and Hanuma Vihari fought valiantly with their half-centuries, the hosts dominated the day with some fine display of fast-bowling. Advertisement Picture Credit: Getty ImagesAfter the end of the day’s play, the former England captain took to social media to dispraise the ‘Men in Blues’.  The 45-year-old claimed that the guests were taught a lesson by the Kiwis on how to play on such conditions.“NZ giving India a lesson in how to play in conditions where the ball moves through the air … They can’t be regarded as a great team till they start winning in places like NZ & England ..” he tweeted.Advertisement Asked to bat once again, India had to be patient while dealing with the swing bowlers, as rain played its part early in the morning. But Mayank Agawal, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja, were all dismissed in single digits while wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant could only manage 12 runs.Virat Kohli’s rough-patch continued, this time with just 3 runs to his account; the skipper once again fell victim to Tim Southee who has now dismissed Kohli for a record 10th time in international cricket. Meanwhile, his deputy, Ajinkya Rahane looked poised to score big today, but it was Southee once again. This time a fantastic outswinger caught the Indian vice-captain by surprise as he was caught at the first slip with only seven runs to his name.The three half centurions Prithvi Shaw, Cheteshwar Pujara and Hanuma Vihari helped their side cross the 200-run mark, however, the team lost their last six wickets for just 48 runs adding more salt to the injury.At stumps New Zealand remain in a commanding position with 63/0 on board as openers Tom Latham and Tom Blundell easily managed the Indian pace attack in the final session. The hosts will look forward to pile on the misery from the first ball tomorrow morning while India must come up with something really special. You may also like:NZ vs Ind 2nd Test Day 1 Review: Kiwis edge out India with early honours at Hagley OvalWhat India needs to do to win the 2nd Test match against New Zealand Advertisementlast_img read more
