Over the past year we’ve worked hard to make sharing completely integral to JustGiving, and this is paying off as we see more and more donations coming through Twitter. What’s striking in this data is that Twitter is driving such a huge volume of mobile donations – which is why it’s so important that we offer supporters a totally seamless mobile experience.” Online giving platform JustGiving reports that Twitter users donated £2.5 million via the site in 2013, an increase of 70% on 2012 and 448% since 2011. Last year over 100,000 donors made donations driven via Twitter.The statistics have been shared by social product manager Jonathan Waddingham, writing on JustGiving’s We Make Social Blog.Although total donations via Twitter are still a tiny proportion of those generated via Facebook, the average Twitter donation of £22 is still higher than the £19 driven via Facebook.JustGiving’s integration with Twitter and other social media channels ensures that donations can have a knock-on effect. Every time someone shares their donation on JustGiving via Twitter it generates on average another £3 for a charity.

Crops Good but Rains this Week Not Quite Enough

first_img SHARE SHARE By Andy Eubank – Jul 30, 2014 Shuter crop updateIndiana crops need some rain. In Madison County in east-central Indiana the crops on Shuter Sunset Farms could use another round even after some spotty showers this week, according to Patrick Shuter.“There’s been some showers that went through in this area the last couple of evenings and like normal they’re extremely spotty and heavy here and not so much there,” he told HAT. Most of our area here has gotten not much over .2 or a quarter inch over the last couple of evenings. We’re getting to the point of being to the dry stage. A half inch of rain here this week wouldn’t hurt us.”The wet spring did slow planting progress in his part of the state, but he estimates 90-95 percent of the area crops did get a decent start out of the ground. Now Shuter sizes up corn and soybeans as pretty good overall.“Corn looks pretty good in most areas and beans are coming on good. I’d say 95 to 98 percent of the corn is tasseled and getting close to brown silks. Beans are podding up pretty good and overall beans are in pretty good shape.”And on their farm there is now a hint of some disease.“We’ve done a little bit of scouting and found a little bit of northern leaf blight and a little bit of gray leaf spot. We’ve sprayed maybe half of our corn, not necessarily on the amount of disease we found, just a preventative for the next week or so. I haven’t seen a lot of it coming on real strong yet.”He added some of the low ground that needed replant this year sports some questionable looking corn, but where corn is good it is very good.

Blogger’s son sentenced to three years of confinement

first_img June 2, 2021 Find out more Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Help by sharing this information BelarusEurope – Central Asia RSF_en News Sentence seen as latest act of harassment of his father, an outspoken critic of the local police Organisation Reporters Without Borders condemns the three-year confinement sentence that the authorities in Babruysk (160 km east of Minsk) imposed on Alyaksei Zhalnou on 21 July in their continuing judicial harassment of his father, Aleh Zhalnou, a blogger who is very critical of the local police.If the sentence is confirmed on appeal, Alyaksei Zhalnou will have to spend three years in a detention centre by night and working outside the centre by day. He was also fined 50 million roubles (3,600 euros).The court found him guilty of hitting a police officer in a police station on 4 September 2013 during the scuffle that ensued when the police handcuffed and hit him and his father. They had been arrested for filming traffic police cars illegally parked on a pedestrian crossing. The police released them a few hours later but kept the video footage they had filmed.“Unable to silence Aleh Zhalnou, the authorities are now targeting his son,” said Johann Bihr, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “We deplore this verdict, which preserves the impunity of the local police, and we call on the courts to overturn it on appeal.”Having declared his intention to appeal, Alyaksei Zhalnou is still free but on a conditional basis. He accused police captain Alyaksandr Butowski of bringing the case against him to avenge his father’s repeated criticism of the local police.His father was already fined 2.6 million roubles (200 euros) on 1 November 2013 on a charge of disobeying a police officer in connection with the same incident. Police searched his apartment, confiscating his computer and mobile phone, before the trial. The blogger is well known in Babruysk for criticizing city authorities, especially the traffic police, and has been increasingly harassed in recent years. He was fined 6.9 million roubles (500 euros) on 7 April for not leaving his mobile phone with security officers before a meeting with the head of regional Investigative Committee.Three weeks before that, he was fined 5.85 million roubles (430 euros) for recording a conversation he had with the head of the city traffic police. In February, the Babruysk prosecutor’s office charged him with “insulting a police officer” in various blog posts in 2012 and 2013. If convicted, he could be also be sentenced to three years of confinement.Belarus is ranked 157th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Judge declares man jailed 10 days for missing jury duty as ‘totally rehabilitated’

first_imgKuzma/iStock(TAMPA, Fla.) — The Florida man who spent 10 days in jail after missing jury duty is now having his record cleared after the judge decided that he was “totally rehabilitated.”Deandre Somerville was ordered to spend time in jail, be put on probation for a year, complete 150 hours of community service, pay a $223 fine and write a letter of apology to the court.Somerville petitioned to have his record cleared and the court had granted that move on Oct. 4, after he read his apology in court, but the judge in the case issued the order vacating that finding on Oct. 7.In that order, obtained by ABC affiliate WFTS, which calls for Somerville’s record to be “immediately vacated and rescinded,” Judge John S. Kastrenakes did go through what he called “the negative facts” of the case.“No, he wasn’t late. He never showed. Neither that day or any subsequent day until a deputy sheriff served him with a summons to appear … numerous telephone calls from the Court’s chambers and the jury office were never returned,” the judge’s filing states.“He told the Court he overslept and then when he awoke decided not to call or come in because he decided it was not important. The Court found him in contempt and sentenced him,” the judge wrote.That said, it was clear to the judge about two weeks later that the 21-year-old had changed.“The young man in court on October 4th was a vastly different person from the Deandre Somerville who refused to come to court and intentionally violated his oath as a sworn juror,” the judge wrote. Kastrenakes appeared to be moved by Somerville, who he wrote has been “totally rehabilitated” and went on to extoll his character.“I firmly believe that Deandre Somerville is the type of person who can achieve anything he wants in this world. He is a thoughtful and respectful young man,” Kastrenakes wrote.He did note that “I do not believe that most individuals would have been redeemed and rehabilitated to the same extent as Mr. Somerville. Upon reflection, that redemption should be immediately rewarded by vacating any finding of contempt.”In the order, the judge maintained that “the Court also knows that it would have punished anyone who behaved the way Mr. Somerville behaved,” but the sentencing prompted outcry and disbelief from the public and criminal justice experts.Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., posted a link to an article about the case on Twitter, writing “This judge put a young black man with no prior arrests in the system for *checks notes* oversleeping. We must reform our criminal justice system, which is designed to criminalize people of color.”Marc Mauer, the executive director of non-profit group The Sentencing Project, told ABC News that this case appears to be “one of the many ripple effects of mass incarceration.”“If you consider what is the judge trying to accomplish here, it’s hard to see why 10 days in jail would be more effective than just 10 hours of community service. Ten days in jail interrupts his work life, his home life, and all for something that he clearly is now remorseful about,” Mauer said, adding that “anecdotally, I’ve never heard of anything like this before.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
