Do Christmas gifts get your goat?

first_imgDo Christmas gifts get your goat? Tagged with: Trading More than two thirds of people feel they have been misled when they discover that money they think has bought an ethical gift from a charity gift ccatalogue has, in fact, been used by the charity in different ways. The Charities Advisory Trust, which launched the Good Gifts Catalogue four years ago, commissioned research from ICM looking at public attitudes to being asked to buy an ethical gift such as a goat, and then finding out that no goat has been bought and the money has been used in other ways.Almost three-quarters of those surveyed said it would put them off buying such gifts in the future and two-thirds said this would affect future giving to charity. Advertisement Charities’ policies on how ethical gifts are portrayed vary. Good Gifts passes over in full all money raised and uses it solely for the purpose stated. Sightsavers says: We will use your donation wherever there is greatest use for it at the time, ActionAid says: By supporting Gifts in Action you can trust us to spend your money where the need is greatest.CAT director Hilary Blume said the figures shows the public is at odds with charities’ view that it is acceptable to sell a specific ‘gift’ then use the money elsewhere. A spokeswoman for Christian Aid said the charity made it very clear on the first page of the Present Aid catalogue that money given for ethical gifts would go to a project fund relevant to the gift. There are six funds – agriculture and livestock; emergency and disaster preparedness; healthcare; power and energy; training and education; and water and environment. Christian Aid works with local partners who tell the charity what they most need.This is supposed to be a fun way of giving to charity, the spokeswoman said. We have tried over three years to make it transparent in terms of being really upfront that the money goes into a ‘pot’. We are always looking to see if we can do it better, but there will always be people who will criticise it. She said there is still an appetite out there for these gifts and added that the target for Present Aid had increased threefold in as many years.

The journalist was pounced on by seven men armed with iron bars and cables on 4 May 2006. They beat him about the head and neck, leaving him unable to work for the next two weeks.Witnesses identified one of his assailants as a follower of the marabout (witch doctor), Sheikh Béthio Thioune. The marabout had told the press last week that he planned to support the re-election campaign of the current president, Abdoulaye Wade, at elections in February 2007, adding that he could deliver “four million disciples”.The assault on the journalist was in reaction to an interview he did on 27 April with one of the marabout’s disciples who cast doubts on the degree of the support he said he enjoyed.“Beating up a journalist who reports unwelcome news is an act from another age, which calls for a firm reaction from the Senegalese authorities,” the press freedom organisation said.“The police must carry out an urgent and thorough investigation into the attack and punish those who were responsible. There must be no impunity for those tempted to silence or intimidate the press during an election campaign”.

Johnson, 42, of Los Angeles is charged with murder for the March 1, 2019, stabbing death of 52-year-old Byron Nettles of Pasadena, according to Pasadena police officials and Los Angeles County coroner’s records.After listening to a summary of the evidence, a Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge at the Pasadena branch determined it was sufficient to order Johnson to stand trial, court officials said.An arraignment hearing was scheduled for Aug. 12.The deadly stabbing took place about 9 a.m. in the 100 block of South Euclid Avenue, where Nettles lived, Pasadena police said in a written statement.Nettles was found suffering from stab wounds and taken to a hospital, where he was ultimately pronounced dead, officials said.An autopsy determined he died from “stab wounds of the chest” and the death was ruled a homicide, according to Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner records.The killer ran away before police arrived, officials said. Officers searched the area, but he was not immediately found.

Investigators spotted Johnson that night in the 1900 block of Cordova Street in Los Angeles, where he was taken into custody.Detectives determined Johnson stabbed Nettles because he believed the victim had become involved in a relationship with Johnson’s longtime girlfriend, Pasadena police Lt. Jesse Carrillo said.Bail for Johnson remained set at $2 million, county booking records show.Anyone with information on the case can reach Pasadena police at 626-744-241.

Those words of Bishop Emeritus Donal Murphy were among the many descriptions of the Very Reverend Canon Joe Dempsey at his funeral Mass on Tuesday.Ordained in June 1965, Canon Dempsey was one of the best known and most experienced priests of the Diocese of Limerick. He was appointed to a diverse range of roles each of which he threw himself passionately into.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up His first appointment was as curate at Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and this was followed by his transfer to Monaleen.  In August 1975, he was appointed Director of the Social Services Centre, a role that he grew into and became much admired for.He was appointed Chaplain to the Defence Forces and full-time Director of the Social Service Centre in 1978 and remained in these roles until he was appointed Parish Priest of the Holy Family Parish, Southill in 1985.Two years later, he took on the duties of Diocesan Chaplain to the Travelling People before being transferred as parish priest to Mungret in 1989 and spent nine years there until his to Rathkeale in 1998. Canon Dempsey became synonymous with and much loved in Rathkeale and retired from there in January 2011.Bishop of Limerick Brendan Leahy said that while he had ill-health for some time, he remained at all times cheerful in spirt.  “I got to know him since I came to Limerick and despite ill health, he struck me as a man who didn’t allow adversity to knock him but kept cheerful in spirit, attentive to prayer and considerate of others.“I know he has been greatly esteemed and loved throughout the Diocese. He has had many various appointments, showing he was able to adapt to the needs of each. The Diocese is grateful for his years of ministry and grateful for his example of prayerful missionary discipleship.“I read today a note a woman gave me with an appreciation of Fr. Joe Dempsey.  She said that those who went to confession to him experienced the compassion of Jesus and their faith in God was renewed. That speaks volumes about him and is a sentiment that is held widely across the diocese about Fr Joe.”In his homily at Tuesday’s Funeral Mass at St. Mary’s Church, Rathkeale, Bishop Emeritus Donal Murray said that Fr. Joe had shared the gentle mercy of God and the hope that God alone can give with thousands of people during his almost 50 years of priesthood.  “In every sense, he was a gentle-man.  He was a welcome and welcoming presence at any table, whether for a meal or for cards.“And yet, even as we give thanks for all the gifts he had and all the comfort he brought to so many people, and for all the friendship and support and wisdom that we experienced from him, we are sad today. We are sad because, although the fruits of his ministry and life live on, we feel like the people of Ephesus when St Paul bade them farewell: ‘they embraced Paul and kissed him, grieving especially because of what he had said, that they would not see him again’.“Joe will not celebrate Mass again.  We pray that he is celebrating its fulfilment with the angels and the saints at the throne of God and, with them, is completing that psalm which he wanted to have at this funeral Mass: ‘You have prepared a banquet for me in the sight of my foes. My head you have anointed with oil; my cup is overflowing’.”Canon Dempsey is deeply regretted by his sisters Sr.Josephine FCJ and Marie Murphy, nephews, nieces, grandnephews, grandnieces, brother-in-law Andrew.   He was buried in the Church grounds at Rathkeale.

Employment relations minister defends decision on mandatory retirement age

first_imgEmployment relations minister defends decision on mandatory retirement ageOn 21 Nov 2006 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Employment relations minister Jim Fitzpatrick has defended the government’s decision to allow mandatory retirement under the age discrimination laws. Heyday, a membership organisation backed by charity Age Concern, has won a judicial review of the mandatory retirement age of 65. It claims compulsory retirement is illegal, and leaves people without the right to work. The High Court will scrutinise the law on 6 December. But Fitzpatrick told Personnel Today the set retirement age would act as a “comfort blanket” for employers and employees during the period of culture change triggered by the legislation. “If companies need a benchmark, then a default retirement age gives them something to say ‘this is where they want to be for a few years’,” he said. The minister admitted that Heyday had a “legitimate point of view”, but insisted the government was taking a “common sense approach”. “People in the normal population are living until their 70s, 80s and 90s. And they’re saying ‘I don’t want to go when I’m 60 or 65’,” he said. “They want the right to ask the company if they can work longer. It’s about trying to inject common sense into the relationship between employee and employer.” Barometer question Should there be a mandatory retirement age? Vote online.
