Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria: 6 Ways You Can Help

first_imgFrom Florida Hospital ApopkaThis past month has been challenging to say the least. We’ve seen three historic hurricanes — Harvey, Irma, and Maria — make landfall and devastate wide sections of Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and the Carribean. Though the storms have passed, it will be a long time before their effects blow over. Tens of thousands of residents continue to struggle amidst the storms’ widespread devastation.As Floridians, we’re no strangers to the damage and heartbreak that tropical storms and hurricanes can bring, which is one of the reasons why watching natural disasters like Hurricane Harvey and Maria unfold from afar can be difficult. But we’ve also been affected, Hurricane Irma barreled into our community and left countless houses destroyed and millions of people without power.The images from the areas affected have been horrific — houses flattened, trees stripped bare, boats and cars strewn about like children’s toys. It might seem hopeless, but there is always hope, even in the darkest of times. There are plenty of ways we can all get involved to extend compassion and help everyone in need.We’ve compiled this list of six safe, simple ways you can support Hurricane Harvey, Irma, and Maria’s victims in the coming days, weeks, and years:Donate to the American Red CrossFlorida Hospital encourages you to support the American Red Cross, one of the leading charitable organizations in the world.

Hillman’s niece, Eloise, was a patient there. Eloise died from a tumor after her first birthday.The care Eloise received at Cook Children’s motivated Hillman and Liston to create Springfest.“Eloise was born alongside her twin sister with some complications from the beginning,” said Hillman, a political science major. “Even though Eloise had struggled with every aspect of her short life, she always tried to smile which taught us to cherish and celebrate every day.”The concert will feature three performers, including Flatland Cavalry, The Knocks and Walshy Fire from Major Lazer. All proceeds will be donated to Camp Summit, a Cook Children’s summer camp.“We hope this becomes the biggest event Cook’s has ever seen,” Hillman said. “But I told Bryce from the beginning that even if we only raise one dollar, it’s a dollar that Cook’s didn’t have when we started.”Liston said he and Hillman chose Camp Summit specifically because of its outdoor activities, such as horseback riding, fishing and kayaking, that give patients a break from the hospital.“We wanted to help kids who were in the hospital and couldn’t do things that normal kids could do, like us, to get out and have fun,” said Liston, an entrepreneurial management major.A committee of 17 students from various campus organizations have been working on Springfest for more than a year.“So much hard work and dedication have gone into making this event happen,” said Devyn Dillenberg, Springfest’s vice president of promotion.Several Greek organizations, campus groups and Fort Worth companies are sponsoring the event. Liston said his experience as treasurer for Lambda Chi Alpha made him realize how much of the fraternity’s money could be used to help an outside cause.“Semester after semester, we were having like two to three mixers, and it was so much money going towards the same thing with no positive benefit,” Liston said. “[Springfest] involves a lot more than just a normal mixer, and then there’s that positive side to it.”Liston said the goal is to raise $100,000 and provide an opportunity for both students and members of the Fort Worth community to bond.“I feel like there’s that divide at TCU where it’s Greek and non-Greek, and we want to mix that up and just make a community event that’s fun for everyone,” Liston said.The event will also feature an array of food trucks and vendors, such as Gorgonzilla, Salsa Limon and Kona Ice. The food vendors will also donate 15 percent of their profits to Cook Children’s.Springfest will be on April 16 from 6-10 p.m. in Frog Alley. Gates open at 5 p.m.Tickets are $22 and can be bought online.“These kids are some of the most brave kids I have ever seen,” said Hillman, “They deserve every second that has gone into this process and hopefully we can help make their life’s a little bit better.”Shelby Arnold contributed to this report.  ReddIt Taylor Wirtzhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/taylor-wirtz/last_img read more

Hamas makes it harder for foreign journalists to visit Gaza Strip

first_img RSF_en PalestineMiddle East – North Africa Receive email alerts WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists June 3, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders is worried by the Hamas interior ministry’s adoption of new rules that will make it harder for foreign journalists to visit the Gaza Strip.Under the new rules, adopted on 25 September, every foreigner wanting to enter the Gaza Strip via the Rafah and Erez crossings will have to apply in an advance to the interior ministry in Gaza. Processing the application could take several days. The government says the new measures are needed for security and control purposes. Italian activist Vittorio Arrigoni’s murder by an armed group on 15 April has heightened concern about the safety of foreigners in the Gaza Strip.Journalists submitting applications will have to include ID photos and a photocopy of their passport, and will have to name a “guarantor” in the Gaza Strip. Members of the Foreign Press Association nonetheless voiced a degree of optimism after a meeting yesterday with the head of Hamas media relations, Hassan Abu Hashish. Some thought the need for initial authorization and the waiting period could mean that journalists would be able to get accreditation valid for a year.Reporters Without Borders believes the new rules will hamper journalists’ freedom of movement and complicate covering the Gaza Strip even more. It therefore urges the authorities to rescind the decision and facilitate the international media’s access to the Gaza Strip.

Workplace equality is now within our reach

first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. An issue that has received considerable press coverage recently is that thenumber of senior women in professional services does not reflect the number ofwomen joining the profession at a graduate level. Deloitte & Touche is no different, as while graduate recruitment hasbeen more or less equal in terms of the number of men and women joining thefirm, the balance of men to women disappears the further up you go, and this ismost apparent at a senior level, where only 11 per cent of partners are female.A recent survey by Accountancy magazine highlighted the issue as one thatpervades the whole profession. The research found that among the leading 60accountancy firms, only 9 per cent of the top accounting jobs were held bywomen. As well as being an issue for the accounting profession, the lack of womenholding senior roles is also evident in the wider business arena. Deloitte& Touche analysis of the FTSE 350 shows that just 3 per cent of executivedirectors are women, and in the FTSE 100, only one company has a female chiefexecutive. Clearly women are just as attracted into the industry as men. But as womenqualify and gain more experience, many tend to leave the profession for careersin industry and elsewhere. With ‘attracting and retaining top talent’ identified as an issue that sitsat the top of every chief executive’s agenda, the departure of women as theybecome more senior is of great concern both to the accountancy profession, andto business as a whole. Why is it happening? Is it that women with families feel the workenvironment offered by large organisations is unsympathetic to their needs, oris it simply that women are less ambitious to take on leadership roles thantheir male peers? It is certainly not the latter – there are number of leadingfemales in the FTSE 100, including Alison Reed of Marks & Spencer, orMargaret Ewing of BAA, and they are great examples of what women can achieve. Clearly, developments in work-life balance legislation make it morepractical for women to work and have a family. But are performance measures inbusiness too male-focused and not suited to recognising the characteristicsthat women can offer? Men and women are physically and attitudinally different.In the workplace women can offer a variety of strengths that can challenge theaccustomed norm in traditionally male-dominated environments. Perhaps the lackof women in senior roles means fewer role models for younger women to look toand learn from. Whatever the reason for the disparity at senior levels it is theresponsibility of those in leadership roles to ensure that talent is retainedand developed and this means making sure that opportunities are just asaccessible to women as they are to men.
