When I was appointed CEO, I was clear that we had to challenge ourselves to think differently and do things better. We’ve been public about our work on EDI, which shone a light on the need for deep cultural change in the organisation.“I am proud that our new strategy and structure has cultural change at its heart. NCVO has made substantial progress over the last 18 months, but we need to go further.“With the strategy review, organisational restructure and the first part of our work on EDI complete, now is the right time for me to step away. Sometimes leadership is about knowing when to hand the baton on and I know I am leaving NCVO in safe hands.“I believe that new leadership will be able to lead the necessary cultural change NCVO is determined, rightly, to achieve. That requires someone new, not part of the past.“I will leave with real sadness, but I know it’s the right and responsible decision for NCVO. I will leave at the end of March.

Struggle builds against racist principal in Queens, N.Y.

first_imgJuly 8 anti-racist rally, Manhattan.WW photo: Anne PrudenA multinational show of unity took place in front of the office of New York City School Chancellor Dennis Walcott at the Department of Education in lower Manhattan July 8 to protest alleged horrendous racist comments made by Principal Minerva Zanca against two nontenured African-American teachers. Zanca is principal of Pan American International High School (PAIHS) in Elmhurst, Queens, N.Y., whose students are predominantly Spanish speaking.Assistant Principal Anthony Riccardo filed an affidavit with the school board against Zanca, stating he heard her use racial epithets during post-observation conferences against Heather Hightower and John Flanagan during the 2012-2013 school year. Both teachers had been fired by Zanca, who charged them with “poor performances.”A third African-American teacher who is tenured, Lisa-Erika James, is leaving the school after Zanca severely gutted the budget for her theater program. All three teachers are filing a discrimination claim against the principal. There are no other African-American teachers at the school.  Zanca now threatens to terminate Riccardo’s job.A July 5 press release, posted on the New York Collective of Radical Educators website (nycore.org), read in part, “We demand that there is a full investigation into these allegations and, if they are substantiated, that the DOE hold the principal accountable to its zero-tolerance policy against discrimination. We also demand that the discontinuances of the personnel involved (Teachers John Flanagan and Heather Hightower and AP Anthony Riccardo) be reversed.”Endorsers for the July 8 protest included teachers and staff from PAIHS and around the city; Councilperson Julissa Ferreras; Assemblyperson Francisco Moya; Kevin Powell and BK Nation; United Federation of Teachers, Movement of Rank and File Educators; New Action/UFT; Badass Teachers Association; Man UP; Hiphop SUV; Island Voice; Campaign to End the New Jim Crow; International Action Center; New York Collective of Radical Educators; NYCORE People of Color Caucus; and Peoples Video Network.For more information on this development, go to tinyurl.com/kt3x2yp.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A Bad Week for Vegans

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Another blow to the meatless movement came when the USDA refused to tell Americans to stop eating meat in its revised dietary guidelines. An advisory panel had recommended to the USDA that strict limits on meat consumption be included in the guidelines. But that was not the case in the final set of guidelines — a fact that sent anti-meat activist groups into orbit. “Eating less red meat is good for all of us and good for the planet,” said Erik Olson, Senior Strategic Director of the Health Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council. The advisory group had recommended that the USDA tell people to stop eating meat because it felt livestock agriculture was bad for the environment. Home Commentary A Bad Week for Vegans By Gary Truitt – Jan 10, 2016 I have a poster in my office that reads: “Vegan, an old Indian word for bad hunter.” The dictionary describes it as “the practice of abstaining from the use of animal products, particularly in diet, and an associated philosophy that rejects the commodity status of animals.” There is a joke that goes, “How can you tell a person is a vegan? Don’t worry they will tell you.”  This is certainly true for a good number of those who have adopted a vegan lifestyle. They are very evangelistic an alerting the world to their choice, typically with a note of condemnation to those of us who remain carnivores. As a movement, they have been very aggressive in supporting policy that limits meat consumption by everyone else.  Recently, however, the vegans ran into some serious pushback from the food industry and the government. Not only did the USDA guidelines not tell people to stop eating meat, it lifted its suggested restrictions on eggs, acknowledging the overwhelming scientific evidence that eggs do not impact cholesterol levels.  Also, for the first time, the guidelines gave approval for coffee consumption saying “moderate coffee consumption” can be part of a healthy diet. But don’t put any sugar in that coffee. The guidelines came down hard on sugar consumption recommending that “added sugars make up less than 10 percent of their daily calories.” However, feel free to add milk to that cup of joe. The guidelines said that more than 80 percent of the U.S. population is not consuming the recommended amount of dairy. The government recommends that a healthy eating pattern include three servings a day of fat-free or low-fat dairy foods such as milk, yogurt, and cheese. This was another thorn in the flesh for vegans, many of whom see dairy products as a meat product because it comes from a cow. The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which advocates a vegan diet, announced that it was filing a lawsuit against the government over the recommendations. Activist and industry groups both praised and panned the report depending on whose ox got gored.  While these recommendations will have an impact on school lunches and federal food programs, they will have little impact on most people’s dietary decisions.  They also show that sound science does not support a vegan lifestyle and that, despite how cool they think they are, vegans do not represent a significant segment of the consuming public.By Gary Truitt The first setback came when People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) proposed Domino’s Pizza add vegan cheese and meat to its topping options. The pizza maker responded by saying bite me. Well, what they actually said was “We’re constantly looking at consumer trends and new things. There has been no sign of consumer demand.” What makes this even more of a stinging rebuke is that PETA owns 39 shares of Domino’s.  This move was also significant because it is one of the few national chains that have had the guts to stand up to radical activist groups.

Get into the habit of doing this every day and make sure to get everyone in the house involved. The more you make this part of your daily routine, the less chance you have of being targeted by opportunistic burglars. “Secondly, if you see something on your street or in your neighbourhood that doesn’t look right then let us know. Don’t wait. Pick up the phone and give us the information as soon as you can. We have caught burglars in the act because someone called us straightaway.

The sooner we know, the faster we can respond and the safer your neighbourhood will be.“Lastly make it your business to check in on an older neighbour or family member. Sadly burglars will target those who are more vulnerable in our community so if you know someone who lives on their own then please make contact in whatever way you can.”We also work closely with our Policing and Community Safety Partnership and Neighbourhood Watch partners to ensure that advice and support is available to all our residents.Councillor Martin Reilly, Chair of the Derry and Strabane PCSP added: “As a Policing and Community Safety Partnership, we are delighted that burglary in our Council area has decreased by over 26% compared to last year.
