RNLI announces switch from opt-in to legitimate interest

first_img Tagged with: data consent Legitimate Interest Melanie May | 2 October 2019 | News RNLI announces switch from opt-in to legitimate interest AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis37  407 total views,  2 views today  408 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis37 RNLI has announced that it is to move from its opt-in approach to marketing and communications, to one based on legitimate interest.The charity adopted the opt-in approach in 2015. Its summer appeal in 2016 was the first appeal that went out to its opted in supporter database, and beat targets to raise £545,000 with a response rate of 32% compared to a target of raising £200,000 and a response rate of 10%. Its 2017 Christmas appeal exceeded its income target by almost £300,000 and last February RNLI announced that it had successfully signed up its 500,000th opted-in supporter. However, despite these successes, the approach has had a bigger impact than anticipated in a number of areas, including reducing the charity’s ability to attract new supporters and raise funds. As a result, it is to change its approach as of this Thursday, 3 October. In a statement, Fundraising Director Jayne George said:“When we took the decision to move to an opt-in approach to marketing and communications in 2015, we said that we would need to constantly review our approach – and that’s exactly what we’ve done. While well intentioned, our move to opt-in has had a bigger impact than anticipated in reducing our ability to attract new supporters, raise vital funds, share safety advice and engage with people.“From Thursday 3 October 2019, we’ll be moving to a Legitimate Interest-based approach to marketing and communications, which is fully compliant with data protection regulations and is in line with the approach taken by many other major charities. “We’ve always been transparent about our approach to opt-in and are committed to sharing what we’re doing with others. We understand that this is a significant change, but we must take action to meet the challenges that the RNLI is facing today.” Image: Jayne George, RNLI Fundraising Director.

Heightened fears over the fate of Amanda Lindhout and Nigel Brennan

first_img RSF and NUSOJ call for release of a journalist held in Somalia’s Puntland region RSF_en Follow the news on Somalia Reporters Without Borders today voiced serious anxiety about the plight of Canadian reporter Amanda Lindhout and Australian photographer Nigel Brennan, who were kidnapped by armed men nearly ten months ago and are still being held hostage in Mogadishu.A woman saying she was Lindhout phoned Canadian television CTV on 10 June and implored the Canadian government to do its utmost to secure her release. She tearfully described the appalling conditions in which she is held captive: “I am kept in a dark, windowless room in chains without any clean drinking water and little food or no food. I’ve been very sick for months without any medicine,” she said.Two week previously, a journalist with Agence-France-Presse (AFP) based in the Somali capital talked on the phone with two foreigners who said they were Amanda Lindhout and Nigel Brennan.The two journalists were abducted on 23 August 2008, on their way back to Mogadishu from visiting a refugee camp in Afgoye, about 20 kilometres west of the capital. They were with a fixer and two Somali drivers, all of whom were released on 15 January 2009.“This captivity which is clearly extremely hazardous for the health of the two journalists has gone on too long. The growing insecurity in the Somali capital should convince the various parties involved to speed up negotiations and quickly find a satisfactory outcome to this case”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.“We support the efforts of the Canadian and Australian governments and urge the kidnappers of the two foreign journalists to release them without delay,” it said.The kidnappers have demanded a ransom for their release, the amount of which has changed over the months. Reporters Without Borders has obtained information that militia groups hoping to profit from the kidnapping are currently putting pressure on the hostage-takers so that they can get their money quickly.Several rumours are circulating about the two hostages that Reporters Without Borders has been unable to confirm. Some Somali sources said in February that Lindhout and Brennan had tried to escape and had been recaptured by their abductors. The same sources also reported that Lindhout was pregnant.Somalia is Africa’s deadliest country for journalists and kidnappings of journalists and aid workers have become frequent. Somalia is ranked 153rd out of 173 countries in Reporters Without Borders’ 2008 world press freedom index.Here is the message left to CTV :”My name is Amanda Lindhout. I’m a Canadian citizen and I’ve been held hostage by gunmen in Somalia for nearly ten months. I’m in a desperate situation. I’m being kept in a dark, windowless room in chains without any clean drinking water and very little food or no food. I’ve been very sick for months without any medicine. I’m begging my government and fellow Canadians to assist my family in paying my ransom. The Canadian government must have some duty to help its citizen in such a crisis. And my fellow citizens to assist me by putting pressure on the government. I love my country and I want to live to see it again. Without food or medicine, I will die here and I’m in need of immediate aid. I implore my family who I love more than anything to continue searching for money for my release – without it, I will die here. I will also tell them that they must deal directly with these people, if my life depends on it. My life is worth more than any money spent. To fellow journalists in Canada, please help bring attention to this situation and contribute in anyway possible, in order that I may return home to Canada. That’s all I can say.” June 12, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Heightened fears over the fate of Amanda Lindhout and Nigel Brennan Organisation SomaliaAfrica SomaliaAfrica News Receive email alerts January 8, 2021 Find out morecenter_img Radio reporter gunned on city street in central Somalia February 24, 2021 Find out more RSF requests urgent adoption of moratorium on arrests of journalists News Help by sharing this information to go further March 2, 2021 Find out more News Newslast_img read more

Disha denied being part of any conspiracy, and that she doesn’t know any such group. “I was just supporting farmers,” she said, as she broke down, “I supported farmers because they are our future and we all need to eat.” She added that she didn’t create the toolkit, and just made two edits to it, reported The NewsMinute. The Fridays For Future movement reportedly began in August 2018, after 15-year-old Greta Thunberg and other young activists sat in front of the Swedish parliament every school day for three weeks, to protest against the lack of action on the climate crisis, according to the website. The group comprises college students and young working professionals who are working towards highlighting the climate crisis and demanding leaders to find solutions. The Cyber Cell of the Delhi Police had lodged an FIR on February 4 against unnamed persons over the ‘toolkit’ shared in connection with coordination of farmers protests.The case against unnamed persons was registered on charges of criminal conspiracy, sedition and various other sections of the Indian Penal Code, the police said.Addressing a press conference earlier, a senior Delhi Police officer said initial investigation linked the document with a pro-Khalistan group named “Poetic Justice Foundation”.According to the police, the “toolkit” has a particular section that mentions “digital strike through hashtags on or before January 26, tweet storms on January 23 onwards, physical action on January 26 and watch-out or join farmers march into Delhi and back to borders”.The “toolkit” was aimed at spreading disaffection and ill-will against the government of India and creating disharmony among various social, religious and cultural groups, the police had added.(With PTI inputs)Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Warrior Lacrosse Program Announces Scholarship Winners

first_imgOcean City High School lacrosse players Chloe Prettyman, left, and Abbey Fenton will continue their academic and athletic careers in college. (Photo courtesy of Warrior Lacrosse Program) Ocean City High School seniors Abbey Fenton and Chloe Prettyman have been awarded the annual Upper Township Warrior Lacrosse Program Scholarship.Both were selected because they played at least three full seasons in the Warrior program and also played all four seasons on the high school lacrosse team.In addition, both Fenton and Prettyman maintained the required “high level of academic achievement” throughout their time at OCHS. The letters of recommendation that the board of the Warrior Lacrosse Program received in support of both athletes were highly impressive, according to a press release.Alyssa Morrison, OCHS varsity lacrosse coach, said Fenton was a key leader for the team.“As our goalie, she is not only responsible for making great saves, but she has had the important job of keeping our defense organized, both physically and mentally. Abbey handles this kind of pressure with comfort and ease,” Morrison said.Lesley Graham, the new varsity lacrosse coach, said she was most impressed with “Chloe’s tenacity for hard work, as well as her competitive, team-first attitude.”The Warrior Lacrosse Program was originally started by Bill Bailey, when lacrosse was considered a “new sport” to South Jersey, as a way to teach the game to seventh and eighth grade boys who wanted to try out for the high school team.By 2010, the program had expanded to having teams at the third through eighth grade levels. By 2012, it had become one of the biggest teams in the league.Also in 2012, the organization added a girls program to the league, which expanded the Warrior Program to include 250 children from all over the Upper Township and Ocean City area.The scholarship being awarded to Fenton and Prettyman was started back in 2008. The board has continued to honor the tradition ever since – even during the coronavirus pandemic, when there wasn’t a lacrosse season.Fenton and Prettyman have plans to continue their academic and athletic careers in college. Abbey will be attending Cabrini University and Chloe is headed for Shippensburg University.In addition to honoring Fenton and Prettyman, the Warrior board would also like to thank the Ocean City High School administration and the OCHS guidance office, especially Tobi Oves, Kathy Sykes and Colleen Dwyer, who have worked with the program over the years to make these special awards possible to student-athletes.last_img read more

Book review

first_img52 Loaves: One Man’s Relentless Pursuit of Truth, Meaning and a Perfect CrustWilliam Alexander, Apgonquin Books of Chapel HillFifty-two weeks, 52 loaves that’s the challenge Canadian William Alexander set himself after experiencing a perfect loaf epiphany at a restaurant, and a new-found longing to replicate the chewy-crusted, open-crumbed “peasant loaf”.Alexander’s irreverent whistle-stop tour of the history of baking moves from ancient Egypt “If the inventor had realised that said invention would culminate in the McDonald’s Snack Wrap, he might have buried it with Tutankhamen” to the continuing bread-making traditions in Morocco, tuition at the Ecole Ritz Escoffier and culminating at a French monastery, where he stayed with the aim of reviving a defunct tradition of baking its own bread.Along the way, the complexities of bread baking come home to roost, such as the realisation that using chlorinated tap water could be hampering his dough’s development. This leaves him agonising over whether he should as had been suggested to him use French water as the only way of making an authentic artisan loaf the downside of which is the thousands of miles of transit gnawing at his locally-minded conscience. Then there’s the local water’s acidity, which, after a trip to the pharmacy to stock up on pH paper, he tests and concludes: “At least the water is not pregnant.”A semi-successful experiment was to work without a recipe, measuring implements or a clock to achieve a new-found “Zen-like” closeness with the bread. The logical progression of this was growing his own hard wheat and stone-grinding it, building a clay oven, and using yeast found growing on local apples to develop a levain. He even dabbles with the trend in the US for baking “no knead” bread doughs left to ferment at room temperature for 18 hours without kneading and finds it makes a perfectly serviceable ciabatta.So does he achieve the perfect loaf? Well, it’s not too much of a spoiler to suggest that the publisher would not have signed off the cheque had he not. But it was a fleeting, never to be repeated moment, savoured alone in the solitude of the monastery. One of the few hints learned was a shift from moulding a boule shape to a batard, with the proximity of the crust to the interior said to benefit the exchange of Maillard compounds between crust and crumb.Then what to do with your weekends once this intensively time-consuming project expires? “Have afternoon sex without scheduling it around the anaerobic respiration of a one-celled organism,” naturally.last_img read more
