Lindsay Boswell, Chief Executive of the Institute of Fundraising, said: “Payroll Giving raises £84 million for charities for each year, yet only 2-3% of the population give to charity in this way. It is therefore essential for charities to promote Payroll Giving in 2007as a means of maximising their income.”CAF runs the Give As You Earn scheme and was the first agency to receive approval when Payroll Giving was launched. More than 75% of the money being received by charities from Payroll Giving is distributed by CAF.To set up a Payroll Giving scheme, employers simply have to sign-up with a Payroll Giving Agency who will transmit the donations on their behalf. Any organisation that signs up to Payroll Giving will receive a Quality Mark certificate that recognises and rewards organisations for making Payroll Giving available to their staff. The Quality Mark comprises a certificate and a logo, as well as Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards. Payroll giving is 20 years old this year Payroll Giving, the tax-efficient method of giving to charity from your salary, was introduced in 1987 in the UK. This year the Institute of Fundraising is urging employers and employees to increase income to charities by signing up to this still under-utilised opportunity to give.In the first full year of Payroll Giving (1987/1988) £1,034,695 was raised for charities. By 2005/2006 £84,740,956 was received and distributed by the Payroll Giving Agencies to charities from employees donating from their pre-tax pay. The number of employees giving through Payroll Giving has increased from 60,629 in 1987/1988 to over 600,000 in 2005/2006.

News RSF_en Coronavirus “information heroes” – journalism that saves lives Raúl Rodríguez, deputy heads of news on Radio Sucre, was apparently murdered for personal reasons and not in connection with his work, prosecutor in charge of the investigation, Antonio Galiardo, told Agence France-Presse on 27 June. He said the journalist’s mistress, Luz Rivera, was believed to have paid a hit-man 4,500 dollars to kill him. The hired killer was reportedly Johnny Jimmy Medina, arrested on 26 June. He was found to have a bullet wound that appeared to confirm his involvement in the exchange of fire in which Rodriguez died on 23 June, close to Luz Rivera’s home. A total of seven people have so far been arrested and charged in connection with the investigation.______________________________24.06.08 – Radio journalist, target of two previous attacks, gunned down in GuayaquilReporters Without Borders hopes that yesterday’s murder of Radio Sucre deputy news director Raúl Rodríguez in the western city of Guayaquil will be quickly solved. The motive has yet to be established but Rodríguez, 64, had been the target of attacks in the past.“Rodríguez carried a gun because he was getting threats and had been attacked twice,” the press freedom organisation said. “He had just a few friends, partly because he had criticised corruption so much on the air. The investigation should take all this into account, even if the evidence gathered so far does not establish that his murder was linked to his work as a journalist.”The attack took place at about 7:20 a.m. yesterday as Rodríguez returned to his home in the northern district of Guayacanes after presenting his early morning programme “Good Morning Ecuador” on Radio Sucre. He was getting out of his jeep when he was attacked by two gunmen wearing hats. One of them – who was accompanied by a woman, according to some accounts – shot him in the back. The other emerged from behind a corner and shot him head on. Rodríguez tried to take cover behind a parked car and, although wounded, pulled out his own gun in order to return fire. Police believe a total of 13 shots were fired.According the daily El Universo, the assailants fled in a Lada taxi with the licence number GNZ-119. Hit in the neck, thorax and left leg, Rodríguez died as a result of injuries in a nearby hospital to which he was rushed by a relative he had been about to visit. After 20 years presenting radio HCJB2, an evangelical radio station he founded, Rodríguez joined Radio Sucre in 1984 and became its deputy news director. He hosted three programmes – “Good Morning Ecuador,” “News Reports” and a Saturday new programme. His family said he was often outspoken on the air in his condemnation of alleged local government corruption and his criticism of the national government. A social conservative, he also criticised homosexuality and abortion.His family said he occasionally received telephone threats and shots were fired at the facade of his house in 2005. The following year, six men tried to kill him as he was parking his car.

Gene Townsend & Scott Stark via Rails-to-Trails Conservatory(WASHINGTON) — Outdoor enthusiasts rejoice. An ambitious, historic new plan will one day allow you to run, bike or even rollerblade coast-to-coast.Rails to Trails Conservancy (RTC) unveiled its 3,700-mile off-road trail this week. When fully completed, the “Great American Rail Trail” will become the nation’s first cross-country multi-use trail.The trail will travel from Washington D.C. through 12 states: Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Washington.RTC settled on the entirely bikeable and walkable route after a 12-month analysis of more than 34,000 miles of existing multi-use trails.More than half of the trail — 1,900 miles — is already complete, with much of it consisting of old railroad track.RTC president Ryan Chao told ABC News that “the route consists of 125 truly beautiful existing trails. Some of the most iconic rail trails in our country.”New segments are expected to be finished every year and, when complete, the trail will serve an estimated 50 million Americans.“We believe that trails connect people with the outdoors, each other and our communities in very powerful ways,” Chao said.RTC wants 90 percent of the trail to be located away from roads — and therefore cars — with the eventual goal of 100 percent.Right now, RTC says it may take decades to fully complete the trail, but that could change.The beginning of the route is the only fully complete section. The nearly 208-mile stretch starts on the steps of the United States capitol in Washington D.C. and heads through Maryland.For a map of the rest of trail, and more information click on the above video.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

This is the first study to use both molecular and fossil data to date the divergence of taxa within the coleoid cephalopods (octopus, squid, cuttlefish). A dataset including sequences from three nuclear and three mitochondrial genes (3415 bp in total) was used to investigate the evolutionary divergences within the group. Divergence time analyses were performed using the Thorne/Kishino method of analysis which allows multiple constraints from the fossil record and permits rates of molecular evolution to vary on different branches of a phylogenetic tree. The data support a Paleozoic origin of the Orders Vampyromorpha, Octopoda and the majority of the extant higher level decapodiform taxa. These estimated divergence times are considerably older than paleontological estimates. The major lineages within the Order Octopoda were estimated to have diverged in the Mesozoic, with a radiation of many taxa around the Cretaceous/Cenozoic boundary. Higher level decapodiform phylogenetic relationships appear to have been obscured due to an ancient diversification of this group.
