At least 10p from the sale of every bottle will be donated to Prostate Cancer UK. The beer costs £1.89 a bottle.The Two Fingers Brewing Co foundersIt has taken two years to produce. It was the idea of seven friends from advertising agency Karmarama who combined their love of craft beer and marketing expertise. They describe their company, Two Fingers Brewing Co, as “the only beer brand in Britain that puts men’s health before profit margins, by using all its profits to fight prostate cancer”.Aurelio is brewed and bottled at cost by Sussex craft brewery, Hepworth & Co, made entirely from British ingredients.  Other partners and suppliers have helped produce the beer, all agreeing to work at or near cost to help maximise the income for the charity.Karmarama planning director Matt Sadler, Co-Founder of Two Fingers Brewing Co. said:“We’re giving men a beer they can be proud of.

Finnegans was founded in 2000 and is only available in four US states. Even though these have a combined population that is less than a quarter of the UK’s, they still raised over $100,000 for charity.  61 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 [message_box title=”Aurelio” color=”blue”]Aurelio is the first of what Two Fingers Brewing Co. hope will become a much-loved family of artisan beers, each of which will give all profits to Prostate Cancer UK.

As well as funding projects, the YEF will invest in evaluation.The decision follows a four-month consultation with young people with lived experience of violence and the people working to keep them safe. Those conversations made it clear that, as well as diversion, the YEF should invest in support for families, especially where children have experienced violence or instability in their home.This means that later this year, the YEF will open another grant round (also worth up to £20 million) to find out how helping families can support children and young people who are at risk of becoming involved in violence. To make sure they are funding the right projects, they will be working closely with professionals in social work, family support and education – as well as young people – to learn more.Jon Yates, Executive Director of the Youth Endowment Fund, said:“We would like to thank every single person – the young people, the community and youth workers, the teachers, the social workers and the police officers – who took the time to help shape our direction. Thanks to your knowledge and insight, our grant round on diversion will help us to build the knowledge we need to keep children and young people safe from violence.“You were clear that if we don’t address the serious overrepresentation of some groups of children in the youth justice system, we can’t achieve our mission. As a first step, we’ve committed to ringfence £5-10 million over the next three years for black, Asian and minority ethnic-led organisations.“As our work continues, we’ll carry on listening to make sure we do the right thing for the children we’re here to support. We’ll share everything we learn, because we know that evidence is no use if it just stays on the shelf. Together, we can use it to make change happen and keep our children safe.”More information about what the Youth Endowment Fund is looking to fund and how to apply is available online and in its prospectus, and it is also holding workshops.last_img read more

Kubota Excited for New Tractor Unveiling in Louisville

first_img Kubota Excited for New Tractor Unveiling in Louisville SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Kubota Excited for New Tractor Unveiling in Louisville Kubota-unveil-at-Louisville-showThe National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky next month is a show one particular exhibitor is pointing to for the unveiling of a brand-new orange colored farm tractor. At least we can assume it will be orange, because that is Kubota’s signature color, but senior product manager Kent Brown just isn’t revealing much information right now.“We want potential customers to come out because we’re going to have a great unveil,” he said. “It’s a new ag tractor, something that customers have been asking for with new configurations that we’re going to show some new hay tools on and things that we haven’t shown before. So, we’re really excited about that, and then maybe later in the year we might have some more exciting news for Kubota. We’re just teasing everybody because right now it is an exciting time. If the farm economy is improving and the market improves, it’s going to be the right time to introduce some new products.”The Louisville show will be the first for this new tractor. Kubota’s newest tractor already available for the ag market is the M7. Brown says it comes with the history of Kubota quality.“We were the innovators in the compact diesel tractor market starting back in 1969, grew that market and about the late 80’s and 90’s got into what is now our M Series market and grown that into more of a utility tractor. In 2014 we introduced to our dealers the M7. In 2016 we finally came into the market with a tractor with the heaviest base weight in this class, the most loader lift capacity, and highest 3 point standard lift capacity in the market.”And it comes technology-ready.“It’s ISOBUS-ready on all of our Premium and Premium KVT tractors, largest touchscreen monitor, and the ability to put about anybody’s auto guidance system on it,” Brown told HAT.See the Kubota unveiling and hundreds of other exhibits at the National Farm Machinery Show at the Kentucky Exposition Center February 13-16, 2019.

Colombia follows France’s bad example

first_imgNews RSF, IFEX-ALC and Media Defence, support FLIP and journalist Diana Díaz against state harassment in Colombia to go further September 2, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Colombia follows France’s bad example RSF_en News 3.09.2002 – Government confirms its adhesion to Article 124 of the Treaty of Rome.Luis Carlos Restrepo, High Commissioner for Peace, said the government of President Alvaro Uribe would continue to adhere to the Rome Treaty’s Article 124. “It’s an open door in the peace process,” he said. “It doesn’t mean that crimes are protected by immunity.”———————————————————————–Reporters Without Borders and Damocles Network, an organisation that combats impunity, today voiced their dismay at Colombia’s decision to refuse the International Criminal Court jurisdiction over war crimes. Less than a month after becoming the 77th State to ratify the Rome Statute establishing the court, Colombia has taken advantage of article 124 of the statute, which allows a country to deny the court jurisdiction over war crimes committed on its territory or by any of its citizens for a period of seven years.The decision coincides with an escalation in the internal armed conflict inColombia, where some 40 journalists have been killed in the past 10 years, which makes it the western hemisphere’s most dangerous country for the news media. “The killing of journalists is encouraged by the inability of the Colombian judicial system to punish those responsible, and now this measure deprives the news media of a valuable international legal recourse,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard and Damocles Network vice-president Jean-Pierre Getti in a joint statement. The two organisations called on Colombian President Alvaro Uribe Vélez (photo) to reverse this decision.The Colombian daily El Tiempo reported on 1 September that the administration of former President Andrés Pastrana availed its of article 124 at the time of ratifying the Rome Statute on 5 August, and that it didthis in consultation with the incoming President Uribe. This article was introduced into the statute at the request of France, which considered thatcertain of the statute’s provisions left its citizens overly exposedColombia’s decision will have serious consequences for efforts to combat the impunity enjoyed by those who kill journalists. In particular, it will deny the court jurisdiction over hostage-taking and attacks against the civilian population, including journalists.The International Criminal Court, which came into force on 1 July, is thefirst permanent international tribunal charged with investigating and trying massive violations of international humanitarian law and human rights. Its responsibilities include investigating the most serious crimes affecting the international community as a whole, namely genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes.

Advertising watchdog censures Houser over ad, but is anyone at home?

first_imgHybrid property portal Houser has been criticised by the Advertising Standards Authority after it ignored efforts by the watchdog to investigate a complaint about one of its listings.Agent Newton Fallowell, which has over 30 branches across Lincolnshire, Staffordshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire, had complained to the ASA about a property listing on Houser that was for a house that had been sold two years ago.The ASA said that potential buyers would have understood from the ad that the property was still on the market when it was not, and that therefore it was misleading under rule 3.1 of the CAP code.But when contacted by the ASA, Houser did not respond to its enquiries, and the watchdog says it is “concerned by Houser’s lack of response apparent disregard for the Code”.“We remind them of their responsibilities to respond promptly to our enquiries and told them to do so in the future,” the ASA says in its judgement.Property hunting reinventedHouser launched in January 2015 after buying the assets of failed property search engine NeedaProperty, describing itself as “the one you didn’t see coming” and that its service is “property hunting reinvented”.The company offers agents free listings on its portal but also scrapes properties from agent websites.On its website the company says “charging agents to list their properties is a thing of the past. All property portals in the UK want to charge real estate agents ever increasing fees for listings because these agents have no viable alternatives. Real search engines on the other hand, never charge for organic listings.”But it’s not too surprising that the ASA struggled to contact anyone at Houser or that some of its listings are getting long in the tooth.Two years down the line from launch and the Houser site is still in ‘beta’ or not yet fully launched – which is unusual at best – while its blog has not been updated since May 2015 while its Twitter account has been silent since April 2015.Houser Newton Fallowell Advertising Standards Agency July 19, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

US Navy Successfully Concludes Largest Demonstration of Shipboard Alternative Fuel Use

first_img View post tag: use The U.S. Navy successfully concluded its largest demonstration of shipboard alternative fuel use Nov. 17, with the successful arrival of the Self Defense Test Ship (SDTS) to Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme, Calif.The SDTS is a decommissioned Spruance-class destroyer ex-Paul F. Foster (EDD 964) reconfigured to provide the Navy an at-sea, remotely controlled, engineering test and evaluation platform without the risk to personnel or operational assets.The ship received approximately 20,000 gallons of a 50-50 blend of an algae-derived, hydro-processed algal oil and petroleum F-76 from the Defense Fuel Supply Point at Naval Base Point Loma, Nov. 16.“How can we have an impact?” asked Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Energy, Installations and Environment) Jackalyne Pfannenstiel at the demonstration’s kick-off. “We can have an impact as a technology leader, highlighting and demonstrating the viability of biofuels as we are here today. This demo, the largest to date, is a major milestone for us. More than 50 percent of our fuel goes to maritime use. When this ship arrives in Port Hueneme, we will be a giant step closer to powering our Great Green Fleet and demonstrating progress toward a sustainable energy future.”Shortly after Pfannenstiel’s remarks, the ship began its 17-hour transit back to Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme using the 50-50 blend. While the SDTS has four LM 2500 main propulsion gas turbines and four 501-K17 ship service gas turbine generators, the ship only operated on one LM 2500 and two 501-K17s during the demonstration, so 100 percent of ship’s propulsion power and 50 percent of service power came from the algal oil/F-76 fuel blend.Meeting the secretary of the Navy’s call for a drop-in fuel replacement, no changes were required to the infrastructure of the ship or fueling pier for the SDTS test. The demonstration also marked the only at-sea operational test of alternative fuels in the LM 2500 – the engine found in most surface combatants – before the Green Strike Group demonstration planned for 2012.“For the test, a baseline run was made on the ship’s transit from Port Hueneme to San Diego using F-76 fuel,” said Rick Kamin, Naval Fuels and Lubricants Cross Functional Team lead. “Using the 50-50 blend on the return run to Port Hueneme, the tested engines were assessed on their abilities to perform start sequences as well as motoring and purging operations noted in Engineering Operational Sequencing System procedures. “We also collected data on compressor inlet temperature, engine speed, engine start time, fuel manifold pressure, turbine outlet temperature, turbine inlet temperature, ship service gas turbine generators power output and gas turbine main engine shaft output.”“From our perspective as the ship’s operators, there was absolutely no difference, whatsoever, in the operation or performance of the ship,” said Mike Wolfe, Naval Surface Warfare Center Port Hueneme Division underway project officer. “The fuel burned just like the traditional fuel we get from the Navy and have been burning for years. We could not tell the difference. The biggest success is that a Navy ship with engines identical to those in commissioned warships operated successfully on an overnight transit with the alternative fuel without a glitch in anything. Operationally, it was absolutely a success.”The alternative fuels effort supports the Navy’s overall energy strategy to increase energy security and safeguard the environment. Recent and upcoming maritime vehicle alternative fuel testing includes an ongoing yard patrol boat demonstration at the U.S. Naval Academy and a Landing Craft, Air-Cushioned vessel demonstration scheduled for early December at Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City, Panama City, Fla.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , November 21, 2011; Image: navy Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Successfully Concludes Largest Demonstration of Shipboard Alternative Fuel Use Equipment & technology US Navy Successfully Concludes Largest Demonstration of Shipboard Alternative Fuel Use View post tag: alternative View post tag: Shipboard View post tag: Demonstration View post tag: US View post tag: largestcenter_img View post tag: successfully View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Fuel View post tag: Concludes View post tag: News by topic November 21, 2011 Share this articlelast_img read more

“Fuck my future” protest slams careers handbook

first_imgOxford students are organising a book-burning protest over the contents of this year’s Oxford and Cambridge Careers Handbook.The handbook, published jointly by the Oxford University Students’ Union (OUSU) and the Cambridge University Students’ Union (CUSU), carries adverts for careers in arms manufacture and tobacco companies. It includes a whole chapter on “Technology and Security” where students can discover how to get a job manufacturing missiles for MBDA and SELEX Galileo, as well as advertisements for British American Tobacco, and the Freemasons.The handbook arrived in the college pigeon-holes of final year students last week.The protesting students plan to burn a pile of the hefty 420-page books on Port Meadow next week in a dramatic and eye-catching demonstration against the focus on limited and traditional career paths. The organisers claim that “according to the Oxford and Cambridge careers guide your only job options are banking, arms, oil and freemasonry.” The banking section is the longest in the handbook, with 30 companies featured; the chapter on alternative careers features only five. There are no featured companies in the charitable sector.Lewis Goodall, a student at St John’s College who set up the protest said, “The careers book is utterly skewed towards certain, altogether unpleasant industries. To look at the pages of the guide anyone would think our career options can only possibly involve corporate law, Shell and various arms companies. We want to protest to make the editors think twice about their content next year, and have a more diversified provision.”Oxford students regularly receive invitations for drinks and dinner from banks, accountancy firms, and Magic Circle Law firms. Ben Lyons, a second year at St. Catherine’s College, commented, “OUSU should be making clear to us that we’ve got a bigger choice than KPMG vs. Freshfields when we graduate. While these careers are not to be disparaged, handbooks and careers fairs should be highlighting more socially useful professions.”The inclusion of some of the companies in the handbook is even more controversial as it seems to conflict with OUSU’s socially responsible investment policy. OUSU has been lobbying the University to invest exclusively in ethically responsible companies. The handbook does not make it clear that all the companies featured paid to be included.OUSU Environment and Ethics officer Daniel Lowe explained that the publication was produced by a contractor, with little input from the student body. He promised that next year’s handbook would be more diverse, saying “OUSU did not have the level of control desired in the production process, but we will ensure that members of the executive will have far more control from now on.”Despite the support for the motivation behind the protester, there is scepticism that burning wads of chemically-loaded glossy paper is a good idea. Lyons said, “It’s not smart to go down such a historically loaded avenue as book-burning and it’s not environmentally responsible to burn thousands of sheets of glossy paper, even if the point they’re making is a good one.”Lowe claimed the protest was pointless. “I see little point in a protest when those in charge have already recognised the problem and promised to do something about it. Port Meadow is a site of special scientific interest and the fragile ecosystem is likely to be badly damaged.” OUSU hold an annual “Beyond Profit” careers fair in Hilary term.last_img read more
