So far, Conoco has sold $7bn worth of oil and gas properties.

Friday Funnies – Justin Marshall’s premature exit

first_imgFriday May 30, 2008 Friday Funnies – Justin Marshall’s premature exit Justin Marshall is a man who’s had quite a varied career. He was a Crusaders legend before moving over to the UK and spending time with Leeds in England, and currently, the Ospreys in Wales.He’s captained the All Blacks and achieved 81 Test Caps for them. He’s been around the block and had his fair share of high and lowlights. He’s also always been a character of the game, and will always been well respected both on and off the pitch.One of his funniest moments came back in the year 2000, when the Brumbies faced the Crusaders at Jade Stadium in Christchurch.The Brumbies were in the lead, and looking to take the win with time running out, so the All Black scrum half was obviously a little frustrated.Referee Andre Watson blows the whistle, to which Marshall clearly says something, prompting Watson to call him over. At this point Marshall presumes he’s getting his marching orders, so turns around and starts walking off in a huff, making it halfway to the tunnel before realising it was only going to be a talking to and a warning.A funny moment that I’m sure won’t be in Marshall’s personal archive of career highlights. :: Related Posts :: Friday Funnies – Justin Marshall Header Great interview with Justin Marshall & Warren Gatland ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

We’d like to see in place a single governing body with extensive powers to tackle the growing issue of Internet fraud and hoaxes”.He added that World Vision had received letters from individuals in Zambia, India, Pakistan and the US, all requesting access to the £1.5 million grant they believe they have received.“Each of these letters and emails deserves a reply but this takes up valuable time and diverts efforts from the real focus of our work. World Vision and other charities like us are in the business of creating hope. We regret someone is using our name in this instance, to create deception and disappointment for a lot of people.”World Vision has posted a statement on its website about this hoax.center_img International relief and development agency World Vision has highlighted the negative impact on charities of hoax and phishing email scams. It has called for a single organisation to be empowered to deal with Internet hoaxes.The charity is currently feeling the effects of an email that claims to come from the charity. It is being sent to smaller overseas charities, and announces that World Vision has offered them a grant of £1.5 million for“charity development and poverty eradication”. Recipients are invited to email the sender for a grant application form which they can complete and submit to the World Vision UK office.In fact, the message aims fraudulently to obtain bank details of partners, supporters and unconnected parties.

Macmillan Cancer Support opens online greetings card shop

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 13 June 2012 | News Tagged with: christmas Trading Macmillan Cancer Support opens online greetings card shop Macmillan Cancer Support has opened an online greeting card shop enabling supporters and the general public to buy greeting cards for occasions throughout the year. The online platform has been provided at no charge by fundraising company Charity Greetings.While UK charities raise around £50 million each year through the sales of Christmas cards, according to the UK Greeting Card Association, that only accounts for about a quarter of cards sold throughout the year. Annual greeting card sales in the UK are worth £1.39 billion according to Mintel.Craig Hartzel, co-founder of Charity Greetings, said: “Selling cards at Christmas is a great way for charities to gain extra funds, but 78% of cards sold in the UK are every day cards… Charities that don’t offer cards all year round are missing out on huge sums of money; we’re excited to be able to help Macmillan establish a new revenue stream.”As well as buying charity greetings cards, shoppers are also invited to add a donation to the charity at the online checkout.John Norton, Head of Sales at Macmillan Cancer Support says: “Greetings cards are a major source of revenue for Macmillan Cancer Support. Whether on the high street or via the Macmillan online shop we have successfully raised funds through the sale of Christmas cards for many years. Our new partner, Charity Greetings, allow us to expand into every day greetings cards, giving our supporters the chance to buy cards supporting Macmillan for their loved ones year-round.”Charity Greetings provides the cards, sets up the online shops and even provides charities with the marketing materials that they need.www.charitygreetings.com/thecardshop/macmillan  171 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

400,000 seafarers around the world stuck on board ships

first_imgAn unjust hardship faces 800,000 workers worldwide. Some 400,000 seafarers whose work contracts have expired are still stuck on their ships in the COVID-19 pandemic. Another 400,000 workers are stuck on shore, unemployed, waiting to replace the workers on the ships.Credit: Maritime NewsGetting off a ship and going home requires more than just disembarking. It usually involves multiple border crossings, flights with at least one connection, certificate after certificate, specialized visas and more. A crew member’s replacement has to go through the same steps.In response to the COVID pandemic, corporate and government entities have broken every one of these steps. Airlines have canceled flights; consulates have closed; countries like the Philippines have closed their borders even to their own citizens.At a conference at the U.N. General Assembly, which the International Transport Workers’ Federation (ITF) helped organize, Captain Hedi Marzougui said his crew  “had to work every day, for 12 hours, with no weekends, without seeing your loved ones, and trapped at sea. Now add that you have to do that with no idea of when you will be repatriated.” Marzougui was in command of a vessel between December 2019 and May 2020. (Hellenic Shipping News, September 26)Earlier the ITF conducted a survey of conditions on board some of the 60,000 vessels that transport 90% of world trade. The ITF found that some crews shaved their heads, because they couldn’t get off the ship to buy shampoo. On another ship the captain had to pull teeth, even though he had no dental training. Social distancing was generally impossible. Around 70% of the seafarers said their contracts had expired. Almost all said they faced serious mental health issues.Seafarers whose contracts have expired have the legal right to stop working. Countries have the right to inspect ships to make sure they are properly crewed and the crews have been properly paid. The Australian Maritime Safety Authority has been aggressive in its ship inspections and support of seafarers, ensuring that they are being treated fairly by the shipowners. At least four ships have been detained in Australian waters. (tinyurl.com/yx8kgzkm)The ITF has said it will support any crew that strikes.Back in March, Cuba showed how it was possible to move passengers and crew from a cruise ship which had COVID-19-infected people on board. The MS Braemar, a Bahamian flagged vessel, had been going from port to port, trying to disembark its passengers, and had been repeatedly refused.Finally, when Cuba made it known it would accept the ship, the MS Braemar docked in Havana. The Cuban authorities, following World Health Organization guidelines, loaded over 1,000 passengers and crew on special buses and took them to Jose Martí airport for chartered flights back to Britain. (tinyurl.com/y62w84jy)If Cuba can do this, why can’t the big countries of the world, who make so much money from world trade, solve the problems of 800,000 seafaring workers?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
