Grants will be provided to support activists working across Asia to improve the lives of LGBTQI people, with GiveOut and Suki Sandhu aiming to grow the fund to at least £25,000 a year. People can donate to the fund via giveout.org/donate.GiveOut will be consulting across the LGBTQI movement in Asia to identify the focus of the new fund and where it can make the greatest difference.Suki Sandhu said:“Whether we like it or not, in the UK we have been afforded a certain level of privilege, and we have a responsibility to give something back. This fund in particular really resonates with me due to my background.“As a gay, Asian man who has grown up in the UK I realise that, despite the challenges I have faced, I have been incredibly lucky. There are many LGBT+ people across Asia being deprived of their freedom and facing terrible persecution simply for being themselves. This is not acceptable, and we all have a duty to try and make a difference.“I’ve worked for more than a decade helping businesses harness minority talent and foster inclusive workplaces. I’m asking business leaders to join me in looking beyond the workplace to support the global struggle for LGBTQI rights, including by making donations to this fund.”GiveOut founder and chair Elliot Vaughn said: Advertisement 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.

The Magistrate’s order was based on a private criminal complaint by Kaul. The FIR is registered under sections 406 (criminal breach of trust), 120 (criminal conspiracy) & 34(common intention) of the IPC and sections 51 (copyright infringement) of the Copyright Act, punishable under sections 63 & 63A. Justice Sarang Kotwal in a recent judgement held sections 63 of the Copyrights Act to be cognisable and non-bailable as the punishment can extend up to three years. Ashish Kaul is the former Group Executive Vice President of Zee Network. He has claimed he is the sole copyright owner of the unique story and the biopic of Didda who was the Princess of Lohar (Poonch), now in Jammu & Kashmir, ‘The Cleopatra of Kashmir’ who ruled for over five decades, directly and indirectly during the 10th and 11th centuries.

Sanders remembers Ecuador jungle with fondness

first_img Sanders remembers Ecuador jungle with fondness Sanders made friends with most of the Spanish-speaking students. His friend, Andres Espinoza, invited him to visit him and his family in Maravalle outside of Quito.He visited again and again.“The people of Ecuador are friendly and warm,” Sanders said. “During my visits to Ecuador, I’ve learned a lot about the people and their culture and have enjoyed every visit. But, I wanted to go to the deep jungle before highways are built to bring natural resources out of Brazil and Ecuador, mainly for exportation to China. When the highways come in, the primary jungles will be changed forever.”While in Ecuador, Sanders made plans to spend time at the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve in the Amazon Region of Ecuador. Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author “The plane ride to Cuyabeno took about 25 minutes, then there was a two hour bus ride to board the water taxi that took us to the wildlife reserve, which is not far from Columbia and Brazil,” Sanders said. “Cuyabeno is owned by five Indian tribes. We stayed in cabins on the Grand Lagoon so our view was not obstructed by trees. I didn’t know that you could see the Southern Cross from there but it was wonderfully visible.”By day, Sanders traveled by water taxi and experienced the jungle by boat and on foot.“The temperature was about 72 every day, and what was so amazing was that there are no mosquitoes,” he said. “The acidity of the water is part of the reason. And, too, the fish eat the larva and there are no humans around to leave tires and cans where mosquitoes can breed.”Sanders said the jungle was a beautiful and intriguing place.“The sky was so blue, bluer than I had ever seen,” he said. “The trees were not as tall as I thought, but were so dense that the leaves looked black. Spider monkeys and wooly monkeys were in trees everywhere but it was hard to make them out.“We saw all kinds of jungle cats, parrots and other birds, anacondas, boa constrictors and pink dolphins. The vegetation was a mixture of blooms – from big, red flowers to delicate orchids – to thick greenery. There were no briars so you could easily walk on the jungle floor.”Vegetation was so thick in some places that it was almost impassable.“Just on one 2.2 acre plot, there were 2,600 different species of plants,” Sanders said. “The primary jungle is a place that should remain that way forever.”An interesting side was a visit with a Shaman.“The Shaman that we visited was a third generation Shaman and he was more like the Disney World version,” Sanders said. “He chanted and shook leaves that looked like they were off an angel trumpet plant. People go to the Shaman for enlightenment but he seemed to be more of a herbalist who knew the secrets of the forest.”Sanders also had an opportunity to participate in the making of yucca bread.“The yucca plant was ground into a flour on a tin with nails hammered into it,” he said. “When the bread was baked, there was no taste to it. It was like eating nothing and, to think, that yucca bread is what has sustained the jungle people for years and years.”Ecuador is near the equator so the sun rises at 6 a.m. and sets at 6 p.m.“We only had electricity one hour a day so candles provided light at night,” Sanders said. “Night time in Ecuador is wonderfully dark.”Guests at the Cuyabeno Wildlife Reserve had many opportunities for fellowship.“Most of the people who visit Ecuador are Europeans,” Sanders said. “Not many Americans go there but I would highly recommend it. Ecuador is an amazing place. It’s about the size of Alabama and it has a coastal region and snow capped mountains with the dessert on one side and the jungle on the other.”Sadly, Sanders said there is visible evidence of oil exploration and, with that, comes change.“I would hate to see the rain forest disappear and the thousands of butterflies that cluster everywhere,” he said. “It would be disappointing not to be able to go into the more remote villages and buy a piece of handmade pottery that had been baked over a fire. I’m just proud that I got an opportunity to do into the deep jungle of Ecuador before it’s gone forever.” Published 11:00 pm Friday, June 28, 2013 Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits You Might Like Curtis Monroe is on a journey to create art that evokes emotion Curtis Monroe works in bright colors and geometric shapes to convey movement and feeling.

His journey there this month was his sixth. He went to, once again, visit friends that he met 13 years ago at Troy University, and to experience the primary jungle before it gives way to “progress.”“In 1998, Troy University’s ‘Circle of Friends’ brought international students and members of the Troy community together,” Sanders said. “I was getting a degree in international business and was required to take a foreign language so I was taking Spanish.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Sanders shares photo memoires of his latest trip.The night was the darkest Carter Sanders had ever experienced. The stars were the most and the brightest he had ever seen. The katydids had silenced. The chatter of the monkeys had ceased. If there were such a thing as perfect tranquility, Sanders was in the state of it.Thirteen years ago, Sanders could not have imagined that he would be in the deep jungle of the upper Amazon Basin basking in the quietness and stillness of a jungle night.But, there he was and it was “an amazing experience.” Skip By The Penny Hoarder Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Gender pay gap: Women’s pay slowly catching up

first_img Comments are closed. Gender pay gap: Women’s pay slowly catching upBy Sheila Attwood on 21 Nov 2014 in Gender pay gap, Pay & benefits, Personnel Today, Pay settlements, Salary surveys Previous Article Next Article The gender pay gap is closing, but earnings growth has yet to catch up with inflation, the latest wage data shows.Figures from the 2014 Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) reveal that the gap between the earnings of men and women is getting smaller. In April 2014, female employees’ hourly earnings stood at 90.6% of the equivalent male wage, resulting in a gender pay gap of 9.4%, down from 10% one year ago. The gender pay gap is now at its lowest level since records began in 1997, says the Office for National Statistics (ONS).Pay data on XpertHRPay trends November 2014: minimum wage increase above the going rate for pay awardsHowever, the gap varies more widely when other workforce characteristics are taken into account, notably whether employees work full or part time. TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady noted that “nearly six million women work part time and they earn £5.15 less per hour than full-time men”.The survey found that the median annual salary – at £27,195 – was 0.7% higher than one year ago. Analysis of weekly earnings reveals that, overall, pay increased by 0.1% between April 2013 and April 2014 – reflecting an increase in jobs at the lower end of the earnings distribution. For employees who were in the same job at the time of both surveys, pay rose by 4.1%.This figure is some way above the across-the-board increases that employers are making at the time of their annual pay review. The latest research from XpertHR shows that pay awards effective in the three months to 31 October 2014 were worth just 2%.With retail prices index inflation at 2.3% in October, on this measure pay continues to fall in real terms. Indeed, in presenting the latest ASHE data, the ONS notes that “adjusted for inflation, weekly earnings decreased by 1.6% compared to 2013”. All signs point to the return of real-terms earnings growth being some way off. Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more

Rich and rare – first insights into species diversity and abundance of Antarctic abyssal Gastropoda (Mollusca)

first_imgThe abyssal depths of the polar oceans are thought to be low in diversity compared with the shallower polar shelves and temperate and tropical deep-sea basins. Our recent study on the gastropod fauna of the deep Southern Ocean gives evidence of the existence of a rich gastropod assemblage at abyssal depths. During the ANDEEP I and II expeditions to the southern Drake Passage, Northwestern Weddell Sea, and South Sandwich Trench, gastropods were collected by bottom and Agassiz trawls, epibenthic sledge, and multicorer, at 40 stations in depths between 127 and 5194m. On the whole, 473 specimens, corresponding to 93 species of 36 families, were obtained. Of those, 414 specimens were caught below 750m depth and refer to 84 (90%) benthic species of 32 (89%) families. Most families were represented by a single species only. The numerically dominant families were Skeneidac and Buccinidae (with 10 and I I species, respectively), Eulimidae and Trochidae (with 9 species each), and Turridae (6 species). Thirty-Seven benthic deep-sea species (44%) were represented by a single specimen, and another 20 species (24%) were found at a single station, suggesting that more than two thirds of Antarctic deep-sea gastropod species are very rare or have a very scattered distribution. Of the 27 species occurring at two or more deep-sea stations, 14 were collected with different gear. Approximately half of the deep-water species are new to science or have been recently described. The present investigation increases the total number of recorded benthic Antarctic deep-sea gastropods (below 750m) from 115 to 177. The previously known depth ranges have been extended, often considerably, for 31 species. The collected deep-sea gastropods comprise both eurybathic shelf species (29%) and apparently true deep-sea species (58%); some of the latter may belong to a so far unknown Antarctic abyssal fauna. Geographical ranges of the collected Antarctic benthic deep-sea gastropod species appear limited, and all these 84 species seem endemic to Antarctica south of the Polar Front. Comparing diversity and abundances based on epibenthic sledge samples, there is no clear relationship between Antarctic deep-sea gastropod abundance and species richness with depth. However, both Antarctic and adjacent deep-sea areas are still far from being adequately sampled to allow more comprehensive conclusions.last_img read more
