The BBC, Channel 4 and BT also signed the letter. They argue the acquisition would seriously compromise media plurality, with the Murdoch empire already owning the Times, Sun and News of the World newspapers. Murdoch currently owns 39 per cent of the satellite broadcaster and has proposed a 700p-a-share buyout that would value the firm at £8bn. News Corp is expected to file for regulatory approval with the European Commission. After this Cable could chose to initiate a full enquiry into the deal on the grounds of public interest. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Monday 11 October 2010 9:51 pm Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Police Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comPuffer fish snaps a selfie with lucky divernypost.com‘The Love Boat’ captain Gavin MacLeod dies at 90nypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com whatsapp

War on Want is encouraging people to “spread the love” on Valentine’s Day this year by by purchasing an “alternative gift” to help flower workers in Colombia to fight against hazardous working conditions and abuse.War on Want’s fundraising appeal include online banners adverts at sites such as The New Statesman’s. These read “This Valentine’s Day make more than one person happy… Spread the love. Click to find out how”, with the call to action including War on Want’s logo.War on Want’s campaign shows that the alternative gift concept is not just for Christmas. Apart from birthdays and personal anniversaries, it can also be applied to holidays and key dates in the calendar. Given the sums currently or about to be spent on chocolates, flowers, card and gifts, it is worth trying to stand out from the crowd with a Valentine’s gift that offers a more lasting effect.

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Twenty charities representing rare and less common cancers are collaborating in a new fundraising campaign, 20 for 20.Organised by Sarcoma UK and including Cancer52, Lymphoma Research Trust, MDS UK Patient Support Group, and Mesothelioma UK among the 20, the event is a response to the impact of Covid-19 and is inspired by this year’s 2.6 Challenge.Starting on 20 September 2020, the charities are asking supporters to sign up to the 20 for 20 challenge, choose either one charity to support or the collective, and raise sponsorship money by taking on 20 challenges over 20 consecutive days. Participants can choose any challenge or activity they like based on the number 20, from running for 20 minutes to baking 20 cakes.Together the 20 for 20 charities fund around £6 million of cancer research every year but have seen income substantially drop since the start of lockdown.In a recent survey, Cancer52, which represents nearly 100 rare and less common patient support groups and charities in the UK, found that the majority had seen a rise in the use of their support services during the pandemic. Almost 30% of those surveyed reported that their support line usage had increased by 50% or more during the first three months of the pandemic.At the same time, the pandemic has had a major impact on the amount of voluntary income received by these charities, and the majority for the 20 for 20 charities (almost 70%) haven’t received any form of government funding.Jane Lyons, Chief Executive of Cancer52, said:“Having a rare or less common cancer already presents a huge range of challenges, from getting diagnosed early to making sure patients get the right treatment. For countless patients and their families, the charities taking part in 20 for 20 are a lifeline of support, information, campaigning and are funders of research specifically looking into these cancers.‘We risk losing this in the long-term if these charities have to further cut what they can do, or worse still, shut. 20 for 20 is a powerful statement about a unique collaboration to bring in some much-needed income that has been lost due to the Covid-19 pandemic. As a strong collective voice, we believe we can achieve more together than apart.”Richard Davidson, Chief Executive of Sarcoma UK, added: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 681 total views, 9 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis6 Tagged with: fundraising events “There is a time bomb for cancer on the horizon and we need to make sure these charities, many of whom are the sole voice for cancer patients whose cancers rarely get the spotlight they need, are there for patients, carers and the NHS when that happens. Arguably, these cancer charities are needed now more than ever. 20 for 20 is a bold attempt to take control of the situation, not as competitors but as partners to make sure we can continue to be there for patients now and crucially, in the future.’In full, the 20 charities taking part in 20 for 20 are: ALK Positive UK, AMMF, Boom Foundation, Brain Tumour Research, Cancer 52, Children’s Cancer and Leukaemia Group, DKMS, GIST Cancer UK, Heartburn Cancer UK, It’s in the Bag, Lymphoma Action, Lymphoma Research Trust, MDS UK Patient Support Group, Mesothelioma UK, Myeloma UK, Pancreatic Cancer Action, Sarcoma UK, Solving Kids Cancer, Target Ovarian Cancer, WMUK. Collectively, these charities have a combined supporter reach of more than 6 million people across the UK.The campaign is supported by biopharmaceutical company Takeda as its headline sponsor and campaign partner Novartis. 680 total views, 8 views today Cancer charities unite to raise funds with new 20 for 20 challenge

Essential for free and democratic elections, freedom of information is not respected in the Islamic Republic.Inspired by Obey posters and designed by the Publicis Belgium advertising agency, the “Yes We Can” campaign draws the general public’s attention to Iran’s appalling record on free speech and freedom of information under the Supreme Leader and President Ahmadinejad. And now censorship and repression are being stepped up yet again on the eve of the election.The human rights situation in Iran got much worse during Ahmadinejad’s two presidential terms. More than 200 newspapers have been closed during the past eights years, while more than 300 journalists and netizens have been arbitrarily arrested, tortured and given long jail sentences. A total of 54 Iranian journalists and netizens are currently detained for trying to provide their fellow citizens with news and information.

José Noel Canales Lagos, a 34-year-old journalist who had worked for the Hondudiario news website for the past 12 years, was gunned down in the capital on 10 August, bringing the number of journalists killed in the past decade to 30 (25 of them since the June 2009 coup).

The Mexican precedent showed that creating a special entity is less important that setting it concrete objectives and giving it the resources required to combat impunity.”Like their Mexican colleagues, Honduran journalists – along with human rights workers, civil society representatives, lawyers and academics who provide information – will not break free of the spiral of violent crime and censorship until the way the police and judicial apparatus functions is completely overhauled.”Will this new entity be finally capable of implementing the protective measures that the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights requested for several journalists? Will it be free to resume all the investigations that were botched or shelved? Will it be able to take account of all the violence generated by the 2009 coup and its impact on human rights and freedom of information?” Reporters Without Borders added: “We should be wary of measures that are announced for effect when what the authorities could and should be doing is apply the law in the Canales case as it should have done in all the preceding cases.” Canales was driving to work when armed individuals aboard a taxi opened fire, hitting him in the head. The motive is not yet known. While stopping short of suggesting that the motive was linked to his work, Hondudiario noted in a tribute to Canales that he had often been threatened since 2009.
