The Ramblers Association appoints brand agency Spencer du Bois The Ramblers’ Association has appointed not-for-profit branding specialists Spencer du Bois to review its brand positioning and corporate identity. The charity, which has campaigned for the rights of walkers for over seventy years, wants to “reach a new generation of walkers and make people look at the association, its work, services and membership benefits in a new way”.Spencer du Bois won the account following a three-way competitive pitch. The agency has been given a wide ranging brief to rethink the current branding, messages and positioning for both internal and external communications.James Hale, Director of Marketing & Communications at The Ramblers’ Association said: “Although we’ve seen steady membership growth, with over 135,000 members, it’s time to change public perceptions of the Association, reach out to a wider audience and continue to attract new members.“Recently, we succeeded in winning major lottery funding to establish urban walking programmes under the title ‘Get Walking, Keep Walking’. Spencer du Bois has taken time to understand our needs and we’re looking forward to working closely with them on this exciting project.”www.spencerdubois.co.uk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 19 February 2008 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Reports March 9, 2017 – Updated on March 11, 2017 Censorship and surveillance of journalists: an unscrupulous business Organisation Reports and statisticsOnline freedomsMedia independence Citizen-journalistsInternet RSF_en Reports and statisticsOnline freedomsMedia independence Citizen-journalistsInternet On World Day Against Cyber-Censorship, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is releasing a report denouncing the readiness with which leading Internet companies submit to the demands of authoritarian regimes in order to profit. RSF is also concerned about the many cases of online surveillance of journalists and calls for the creation of binding international regulatory mechanisms. The trade, plied by companies with expertise in cyber-surveillance, is lucrative, but dubious. RSF condemns the legal void that allows these companies to sell their products to regimes bent on online surveillance and censorship – just to increase their market share.Recent revelations suggest that the Israeli company NSO is implicated in a case of arbitrary Mexican government surveillance of investigative journalist Rafael Cabrera. Online surveillance constitutes a serious violation of media freedom. According to a report published by Der Spiegel on 25 February, Germany’s Federal Intelligence Service (BND) has spied on journalists with such international media outlets as the BBC, New York Times, and Reuters for years. RSF also deplores the frequency with which Facebook posts and tweets are reportedly suppressed. In Turkey, for example, Twitter deployed its local content management tool, which can be used to block access to a tweet or an account from within a given country. After last July’s abortive coup, Twitter lost no time in complying with orders to censor the accounts of more than 20 journalists and media outlets. There is also concern about Facebook’s active cooperation with certain governments, its deletion of journalistic content, and its opaque content “moderation” policies. The examples include the fan page of ARA News, a website that covers developments in Syria, Iraq, Turkey, and other parts of the Middle East. Facebook blocked the site for several days last December without explanation. #CollateralFreedom: five censored sites unblocked by RSF On World Day Against Cyber-Censorship, RSF is also pleased to report that it has embarked on Operation Collateral Freedom #3, with the goal of making online information accessible in countries where it is censored and deterring “Enemies of the Internet” from blocking news websites.After unblocking access to 11 websites in 2015 and six others in 2016, this operation has created alternative access to five more news websites that are blocked in their country of origin: Ozguruz (the well-known Turkish journalist Can Dündar’s new site) in Turkey, Azathabar in Turkmenistan, Meydan TV, reporting on Azerbaijan from exile, Doha News in Qatar, and Alqst in Saudi Arabia. This operation is based on the technique of mirroring. RSF uses the hosting services of such major companies such as Fastly, Amazon, Microsoft, and Google to create duplicates or “mirrors” of the censored sites. “Enemies of the Internet” cannot block access to the mirrors without a collateral impact on their own access to these Internet giants, hence the operation’s name – Collateral Freedom. An extension for the Chrome browser created in 2016 facilitates access to the #CollateralFreedom mirror sites. When someone tries to access one of the original websites from within a country where it is blocked, the icon of the “RSF Censorship Detector” app appears if the extension is installed. Clicking on this icon automatically redirects the user to RSF’s unblocked mirror site. RSF has to buy bandwidth to keep the mirror sites accessible. The more they are visited, the faster this bandwidth is used up. RSF asks all Internet users to help pay for this bandwidth in order to prolong access to the mirrors. For more information, visit: https://rsf.org/en/collateral-freedomYou can contribute to this operation: – By using the #CollateralFreedom hashtag to share this information and by helping to increase awareness of the work of these blocked sites. – By making a donation that will be used to help keep this operation going. Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Turkey, and Qatar are ranked 178th, 165th, 161st, 151st, and 117th respectively (out of 180 countries) in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

News RSF_en News News The police copied some information found on Martinelli’s computers, seized notebooks containing notes of the investigation and took numbers found on his mobile phone. They also read documents relating to the “Monster of Florence” on Sarzanini’s work computer but without copying them. Both journalists refused to reveal their sources. Ten RSF recommendations for the European Union Receive email alerts February 5, 2004 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Reporters Without Borders condemns new violations of protection of sources Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders has protested about the violation of the right to protect their sources of two journalists whose homes and offices were searched by police.The searches against Massimo Martinelli, of the daily Il Messaggero, and Fiorenza Sarzanini, of the daily Corriere della Sera in Rome were ordered by the prosecutor’s office in Perugia, central Italy on 4 February.The two journalists were accused of breaking legal confidentiality rules relating to an investigation into the death of a doctor suspected of having ordered another person to commit a series of murders.”The Italian courts have on a number of occasions violated the principle of the protection of sources, which is fundamental in ensuring independent investigative journalism,” said Reporters Without Borders.”The European Court of Human Rights views searches of homes and offices of journalists as contrary to Article 10 of the European Convention on Human Rights in the absence of a ‘pressing social need’. It is obvious that the searches were not in that category and were in fact an unacceptable attack on press freedom,” said the international press freedom organisation.Sarzanini and Martinelli both wrote articles at the end of January 2004 about the investigation into the death of a doctor suspected of being behind the satanic ritual murder of eight couples in the Tuscany countryside between 1968 and 1985 carried out by a man nicknamed the “Monster of Florence”. The journalists are accused of revealing information in the enquiry evidence in breach of legal confidentiality rules.

Tulsa Police Department/FacebookBy Jon Haworth, ABC News(TULSA, Okla.) — A man has been arrested after stalking his former female colleague for over a month, shooting her husband and attempting to kidnap her from her own home.The incident occurred on Friday, April 2, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, when the unnamed target of the kidnapping was leaving for work in the morning as her husband escorted her to her vehicle when they saw the suspect, Justin Arthur-Ray Davis, sitting in his truck nearby, according to a statement from the Tulsa Police Department (TPD).“Davis has been stalking the victim for over a month after he resigned at their mutual work place,” TPD said. “She has made reports of Davis sitting outside her apartment and leaving candy and food on her door step.”It was then that Davis got out of his truck with a shotgun and chased after the couple with it as they ran back into their apartment.“Davis shot through the door hitting the husband in the hand,” authorities said. “Davis [then] went into the apartment and grabbed the victim dragging her down the stairs, assaulting her along the way.”Police say that neighbors woke up to the sounds of the incident and witnessed Davis “choke and punch the victim,” leading them to immediately call 911.“The husband then came back down stairs to save her and Davis [pointed] the shotgun at him saying he will kill him if she doesn’t get in the truck,” TPD said.The suspect then reportedly fired two shots from the shotgun into the air.Davis took off as authorities began to arrive on scene which led to a short police chase on I-44. But when the suspect attempted to take an off-ramp, he crashed his car as he lost control of it.Davis was transported to a local area hospital for a laceration to his head and booked into the Tulsa County Jail. Officers recovered the shotgun and ammunition at the scene of the accident.It is currently unclear what charges Davis will face for his involvement in this incident.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Today, Americans across the country are looking to the humble groundhog to determine whether we’ve got six long more weeks of winter in store or whether we can get ready to celebrate an early spring. Regardless of whether Punxsutawney Phil (the official weather-clairvoyant groundhog) sees his shadow, dooming us to six more weeks of winter, or busts forth without a care in the world, I think we can all get behind Greensky Bluegrass’s awesome show at the State Theatre in State College, PA, on Groundhog’s Day in 2016, celebrating the somewhat-absurd holiday.To kick off the evening, the band opened with a “Groundhog” sandwich, giving a nod to the theme of the day. From the opening tune of “Groundhog,” Greensky moved through “Money For Nothing” before getting right back into “Groundhog” and then transitioning to “The Four.” However, little did the crowd know they had, not one but, two more “Groundhogs” coming their way: one serving as the second set opener and the other serving as the encore opener.You can check out crispy audio and a setlist from the night below, courtesy of Sean AY.Setlist: Greensky Bluegrass | State Theater | State College, PA | 2/2/16Set 1: Groundhog > Money for Nothing > Groundhog > The Four, Radio Blues, Eat My Dust, In Control > Airmail Special, Reverend, Leap YearSet 2: Groundhog > Over Again, Burn Them, Handguns, 33443 > Kerosene, White House Blues, Jaywalking, Handle with CareEncore: Groundhog > Wheel Hoss
