Myeloma UK reports that in the 10 years since it joined JustGiving it has raised over £3 million through the site.Given that, according to the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator, the charity raised £2.8 million in 2013 and £3.2 million 2012, this suggests that giving via JustGiving has raised at least 10% of the charity’s income over the past decade.Myeloma UK Chief Executive Eric Low thanked the charity’s supporters for breaking through the £3 million barrier, adding:“Myeloma UK receives no government funding; it relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and fundraising activities, so please continue to be extraordinary by raising even more money to support our work.” Tagged with: Digital Justgiving Research / statistics  24 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Advertisementcenter_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Myeloma UK supporters raise over £3m on JustGiving in 10 years Howard Lake | 29 April 2015 | Newslast_img read more

Judge Holds Special Hearing in Roger Stone Case Today

first_imgA federal judge has ordered a special hearing for today in the Roger Stone case.The longtime Trump adviser and Broward resident is set for sentencing Thursday on seven felony counts including lying to investigators and witness tampering.According to Politico, U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued the order after prosecutors abruptly quit the case.Also, some legal expert say there is enough evidence of jury bias to warrant a new trial for Roger Stone. The four-member prosecution withdrew after Attorney General Bill Barr overrode their recommendation of a seven to nine year sentence for Stone. President Trump’s tweets ripping Stone’s prosecution have sparked claims of political interference in the justice system.last_img read more

Tories force allnight votes in bid to force testimony from PMs adviser

first_imgOTTAWA – Conservatives are forcing MPs to stay up all night voting continuously on more than 250 motions — a filibuster launched in retaliation for the Liberals voting down a Tory motion to call Justin Trudeau’s national security adviser to testify at a House of Commons committee about the prime minister’s disastrous trip to India.Conservatives predicted the non-stop voting on all the motions, which started around dinner time Thursday, would take about 40 hours.The filibuster will result in a hefty overtime bill for the Commons, since its services must be available whenever the chamber is sitting.Those services include security, cafeteria, shuttle buses, messengers, translation, transcription, printing, maintenance and tech support.After about three hours of voting, Liberal MP Rob Oliphant asked that the Commons mobilize additional staff so that the young pages in the chamber would not be “run off their feet all night.”Back in 2011, when the NDP conducted a 58-hour filibuster against the then Conservative government, Tory MP Candice Bergen — now the party’s House leader — pegged the cost of keeping the Commons running at $50,000 an hour, although her own government disputed that figure.Whatever the overtime costs for Commons employees, they don’t include the cost of rearranging travel plans. Many MPs, particularly from far-flung parts of the country, normally return to their ridings on Thursday nights. Cabinet ministers also tend to fan out across the country on Fridays to make announcements or attend events.Transport Minister Marc Garneau had to cancel his plans to travel Friday to Lac Megantic, Que. — site of the 2013 rail disaster that levelled half the downtown area — where he was scheduled to discuss rail safety with the Quebec Federation of Municipalities.Conservatives maintained the disruption was warranted, given the government’s refusal to let the prime minister’s national security adviser, Daniel Jean, testify at the national security committee about the briefing he gave journalists during Trudeau’s India trip.“We need the same rights that journalists had, and if he doesn’t give it to us through this vote tonight, we are going to show that Parliament is going to sit until they do the right thing,” Conservative foreign affairs critic Erin O’Toole said earlier Thursday.Jean suggested to reporters covering Trudeau’s trouble-plagued trip last month that rogue factions in the Indian government had sabotaged the prime minister’s visit.That included the embarrassing revelation that Jaspar Atwal — a one-time Canadian Sikh separatist extremist convicted of attempting to murder an Indian minister during a visit to Vancouver Island in 1986 — had been invited to two events with the prime minister during his India sojourn. The revelation came just as Trudeau was attempting to convince Indian officials that his government supports a united India and does not countenance violent extremism.In a media briefing arranged by the Prime Minister’s Office, Jean suggested Atwal’s presence was arranged by factions within the Indian government who want to prevent Prime Minister Narendra Modi from getting too cosy with a foreign government they believe is not committed to a united India.Trudeau has since defended Jean, saying he’s a professional, non-partisan, veteran public servant who only says what he knows to be true.But the Conservatives maintain Jean was used by the PMO to deflect attention from a public relations disaster.“When the prime minister uses a senior and respected civil servant as a human shield to get out of a bad political scandal, that’s terrible,” said O’Toole.He questioned how one could argue that Indian factions could have been responsible when a Liberal backbencher, Randeep Sarai, has taken responsibility for getting Atwal on the guest lists and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland has called the incident an “honest mistake.”“Both of these scenarios can’t be true and the fact they brought up the India conspiracy theory also is a blight on a good relationship with an important country,” O’Toole said.The Conservative motions are all related to budgetary matters, which are considered matters of confidence. The government must, therefore, ensure enough of its MPs are present at all times to avoid losing any of the votes — which would be deemed a loss of confidence and trigger an election.last_img read more
