Strengthened IoF Code bans selling donors’ data

first_img Howard Lake | 22 September 2015 | News Charities will be banned from selling any individual’s personal data to a third party, following a review of the Code of Fundraising Practice. This is one of a number of measures announced by the Institute of Fundraising in response to the FRSB Interim Report following media and government criticism after the death of charity volunteer and donor Mrs Olive Cooke.The Institute of Fundraising announced the changes as part of its efforts to raise further the standards required of fundraisers in the UK, in particular to protect vulnerable donors. It aimed to help put donors back in control of their relationship with charities, not least by making it clear to fundraisers that members of the public must never be put under undue pressure to give.The Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) published its interim findings in June 2015. Some of these recommendations were accepted immediately by  the Institute’s Standards Committee at its meeting in June.The changes to the Code of Fundraising Practice come just over a week after a public commitment from a number of charity chief executives to a stronger Code to guide how charities contact people and ask for donations.Donors in controlMeasures announced include:• Every addressed fundraising communication will be required to carry a clear message explaining how donors can easily ‘opt-out’ of receiving future communications• Minimum font sizes will be introduced for opt-in and opt-out statements on all printed communication (including newspaper adverts)• Charities will be banned from selling any individual’s data to a third party• Charities will only be able to share an individual’s data with third parties for fundraising communications if that individual has ‘opted in’ and provided express consent• A new clear requirement will be introduced to ensure fundraisers end a telephone call when asked• All fundraising calls from agencies and call centres will have to be made from an identifiable number• The current grey area around ‘reasonable persuasion’ in the Code will be replaced with a clear requirement prohibiting intrusive or persistent behaviour that places undue pressure on a person to donate.One recommendation not acceptedOnly one of the FRSB’s recommendations was not accepted. This was that:“Specifically on the subject of frequency of contact, the Board recommends that the IoF amend the Code to specify the maximum amount of times that a charity can contact an individual per year”.The Institute concluded that all the recommendations in its report would “make it easier for every individual to manage the amount of fundraising communications they receive. The impact of these changes will enable a donor to reduce the contact that they have from a charity if that is what they want”.Consequently these would achieve the aim of the FRSB’s recommendation.

Researching massive growth in giving. “Open, honest and respectful”Peter Lewis, IoF Chief Executive, said of the new changes to the Code:“Our Code is underpinned by the values of being open, honest and respectful. The events of recent months highlighted that in too many cases fundraising practice in the UK was not aligned either with public expectations or the values underpinning our Code. That is why we are introducing stronger requirements and are requiring all charities to review and amend their fundraising materials”.Task groupsThe new changes follow the work of four task-groups set up in June by the Institute of Fundraising’s Standards Committee to review the recommendations of the FRSB.These task groups reported to the Standards Committee and Board, where the changes were agreed. All recommendations agreed by Standards Committee are now being reviewed by lawyers before being implemented as full Code changes over the next few weeks.Tanya Steele, Chair of Standards Committee, said:“It is clear from the poor practices highlighted by the media and the increased number of complaints to the FRSB as a result, that the public feels that we have not had the right rules in place to govern fundraising. These changes, in response to the areas where the public have demonstrated most concern, are part of an ongoing commitment to strengthen the Codes and give fundraisers clear and unequivocal guidance.”You can read a full list of Code changes and responses to the FRSB Interim Report on Charity Fundraising on the IoF website.The IoF has shared these decisions with the FRSB. It expects “to work with them to agree appropriate implementation periods for Code changes ‘going live’ and any transition periods that are needed for charities to comply”.  133 total views,  3 views todaycenter_img Tagged with: ethics Fundraising Standards Board Institute of Fundraising regulation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2  134 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2last_img read more

RSF and JED alarmed by police colonel’s threats against Radio Okapi journalist

first_img February 24, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and Journalist in Danger (JED) call on the police and military authorities in Democratic Republic of Congo to put a stop to the repeated threats against journalists by their personnel and to end the impunity enjoyed by those responsible for such threats. RSF and JED also call on the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUSCO) to do everything possible to provide effective protection for Radio Okapi journalists who are the target of such threats. News to go further Organisation RSF_en August 5, 2016 RSF and JED alarmed by police colonel’s threats against Radio Okapi journalist Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence Journalist arrested on provincial governor’s orders Help by sharing this information News Newscenter_img Congolese reporter wounded by gunshot while covering protest in Goma Gabriel Wamenya, Crédit : C-news Reporter jailed in DRC for allegedly defaming parliamentarian Democratic Republic of CongoAfrica Condemning abuses ImpunityViolence Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo Receive email alerts Gabriel Wameyna, a journalist working for MONUSCO-backed Radio Okapi in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, was explicitly and aggresively threatened by Col. Van Kasongo, the deputy commander of the Nord-Kivu police, while in a MONUSCO helicopter with Kasongo Gabriel Wameyna, a journalist working for MONUSCO-backed Radio Okapi in the eastern province of Nord-Kivu, was explicitly and aggresively threatened by Col. Van Kasongo, the deputy commander of the Nord-Kivu police, while in a MONUSCO helicopter with Kasongo and other provincial officials on 23 July. Accusing Wamenya of spreading “lies” in a Radio Okapi report, Col. Kasongo added: “I am strict in my habits (…) I am going to pursue you to the end.” Since then, Wamenya says he has been followed by policemen while out reporting and has received telephone threats at night. “We condemn in the strongest terms the threats against this Radio Okapi journalist and we call on the police authorities to send a clear message to their men to end such behaviour, which is unworthy of law enforcement personnel, and to punish those responsible,” said Cléa Kahn-Sriber, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “We also call on Col. Kasongo to immediately retract his threats, failing which we will hold him responsible for anything that may happen to Gabriel Wamenya,” JED secretary-general Tshivis Tshivuadi said. Broadcast on 21 July, the offending report on Radio Okapi was about the severe beating received by a youth in Goma, the capital of Nord-Kivu, and his subsequent death. The director of the Nord-Kivu branch of Radio Okapi confirmed that the report was balanced and that all relevant parties were interviewed. Wamenya interviewed the youth’s family, who said they saw him being arrested and beaten by the police. The police dumped him outside the hospital morgue, but he was still alive and doctors tried to save him until he finally died of his injuries a week later. When Wamenya then contacted the police for a comment, Col. Kasongo said he was not aware of these events but, if they proved to be true, he would ensure that those responsible were prosecuted. After the threats were made, MONUSCO officials suggested a mediation meeting but their proposal was rejected by Col. Kasongo. He instead sent a letter to Radio Okapi and MONUSCO with an attached police report dated on the night of the event claiming that police officers found the young man in a gravely injured condition and took him to the hospital. If the police filed this report on the night of the event, it is astonishing that Col. Kasongo was not aware of it when interviewed by Wamenya a week later. When reached by RSF, Col. Kasongo denied threatening Wamenya, called him a liar and accused him of trying to defame the police. Paradoxically, he also said the police were very busy and did not have time to worry about Wamenya. “I am not this journalist’s keeper,” he concluded cryptically. “We call on the MONUSCO authorities to quickly implement the protective measures that are needed to guarantee the safety of this journalist, who is currently threatened,” RSF added. RSF has registered a total of 63 acts of persecution by the authorities against journalists in the Democratic Republic of Congo since the start of the year, 20 of them in Nord-Kivu. Two Radio Okapi journalists, Serge Maheshe and Didace Namujimbo, were murdered in Bukavu, the capital of the neighbouring province of Sud-Kivu, in 2007 and 2008 respectively. Their murderers were never definitively identified and punished. The DRC is ranked 152nd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

Humans Are Exceptional at Birth – and Before

first_imgMore studies show humanness from the start of life.The Human Fetus Preferentially Engages with Face-like Visual Stimuli (Current Biology). Mothers know that their babies in the womb respond to sound, such as when they sing lullabies to them, but did parents know they can respond to sight as well? In this study, published in an open-access paper, researchers projected three lights through maternal tissue to 39 unborn babies at 25 weeks gestation. The babies looked toward the three lights when they were arranged like a face (two eyes and a mouth), but not if the lights were inverted.In the third trimester of pregnancy, the human fetus has the capacity to process perceptual information. With advances in 4D ultrasound technology, detailed assessment of fetal behavior is now possible. Furthermore, modeling of intrauterine conditions has indicated a substantially greater luminance within the uterus than previously thought. Consequently, light conveying perceptual content could be projected through the uterine wall and perceived by the fetus, dependent on how light interfaces with maternal tissue. We do know that human infants at birth show a preference to engage with a top-heavy, face-like stimulus when contrasted with all other forms of stimuli. However, the viability of performing such an experiment based on visual stimuli projected through the uterine wall with fetal participants is not currently known. We examined fetal head turns to visually presented upright and inverted face-like stimuli. Here we show that the fetus in the third trimester of pregnancy is more likely to engage with upright configural stimuli when contrasted to inverted visual stimuli, in a manner similar to results with newborn participants. The current study suggests that postnatal experience is not required for this preference. In addition, we describe a new method whereby it is possible to deliver specific visual stimuli to the fetus. This new technique provides an important new pathway for the assessment of prenatal visual perceptual capacities.Now that visual response has been demonstrated in unborn babies, follow-up studies will have “implications for further understanding of the fetus,” the authors say.Uncovering the secrets of the human body’s perception of touch (Phys.org). Haptics scientist Masashi Nakatani, an expert in tactile sensors, has been studying the developmental process of touch in infants. “One of my goals is to clarify how body perception helps us acquire cognitive skills that are unique to human beings, particularly in the modern information age,” he says. Concerned about the rise in electronic displays for children at a young age, he doesn’t want them to miss out on the important process of exploring their environment through touch, an important part of the enjoyment of life.Nakatani and colleagues invented the TECHTILE toolkit to promote people to appreciate the sense of touch. “I think that modern haptic devices must provide greater value for us to enjoy our daily lives,” says Nakatani. One of Nakatani’s students, Kazuki Sakurada, has developed a smartphone-based haptic chat system with audio-vibrotactile feedback to provide a sense of presence of others during text conversations. “This study may yield clues about the importance of somatic feedback in emotional attachment with other people (Fig. 2),” says Nakatani. “In the long term, I would like to enhance human abilities to extract valuable knowledge from overwhelming, excessive information in the environment.“Young babies disapprove when they see adults acting immorally (New Scientist). The human moral sense is evident early on in newborns, says Anil Ananthaswamy:Even four-month-old infants expect adults to comfort crying babies. The finding suggests that we may be born with a foundation of morality that becomes the basis for more advanced moral and social behaviour in later life.Psychologists have long debated whether moral behaviour is innate or learned. In 2007, Kiley Hamlin and colleagues at Yale University found that 6-month-old and 10-month-old babies prefer people who help others, and show an aversion to those who don’t.The findings undermine claims, like those of philosopher John Locke, that humans are born as a “blank slate” (tabula rasa), learning everything by experience. Instead, a “foundation of morality” is already there, with some understanding of what human beings “should” be doing, including helping those who are hurting.Former Planned Parenthood chief executive Cecile Richards is still callous, smug and unrepentant about the sale of baby body parts from her company’s chief industry, abortion, two years after the scandal was exposed. Now, she is even challenging the right of physicians not to perform abortions for ‘moral’ objections (Breitbart News), which amounts to forcing them to violate their conscience. Recently, Planned Parenthood acknowledge the racist and eugenics views of its infamous founder, Margaret Sanger (Breitbart News), but another video from the Center for Medical Progress uncovers what they do with the killed babies: “Clinics grind remains of aborted babies, flush them in sewer” (WND).Knowing this, how can citizens feel anything but horror and disgust at this evil industry’s unconscionable actions? Now hear this: Despite the present administration’s many good moves on social issues since the last election, they have still not cut the funding of nearly half a billion dollars per year to the abortion giant—largely because of unanimous opposition by every Democrat in Congress every time it is proposed as part of a bill. How many more unborn babies will never see, hear, or touch with their marvelous senses?

Google Taps StackOverflow as Official Android Dev Support for Noobs, Q&A

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#Google#mobile#web What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Just over a year ago, we were excited to report on a new website for programmers. StackOverflow was the brainchild of coders/rockstars Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood, and it was a social Q&A channel that promised to give programmers solutions for even the most obscure bugs.Apparently, that approach to developer support was a solid one. These days, the site gets around 1.8 million unique visitors a month and has served as a prototype for white-label Q&A sites for companies, too. The site’s latest merit badge is an official nod from the Android team, which has announced StackOverflow as the official home of Android developer Q&A support.Android rep Roman Nurik wrote in a blog post, “We’re working with StackOverflow to improve developer support, especially for developers new to Android. In essence, the Android tag on Stack Overflow will become an official Android app development Q&A medium.”Nurik further noted that StackOverflow’s format was particularly helpful for beginners new to the Android platform. However, he did state, “It’s also important to point out that we don’t plan to change the android-developers group, so intermediate and expert users should still feel free to post there.”The StackOverflow “Digg for developers” model has worked well for all kinds of programmers, clearly. The models has also been successfully applied to such diverse topics as mathematics, parenting and even World of Warcraft – all built on the company’s StackExchange white-label platform.

When HVAC Manufacturers, Efficiency Advocates Find Common Ground

first_imgIt’s rarely easy to get groups with disparate interests to collaborate, but an agreement announced this month between HVAC manufacturers and energy efficiency advocates illustrates that it can happen with potentially significant positive effects.On October 13, the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute, more than a dozen manufacturers, and seven energy conservation groups announced an agreement that calls for regional HVAC-product efficiency standards and more-stringent building code provisions for new construction.The federal government has been slow to establish a new system of requirements that addresses the energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness of HVAC products in different climates. This agreement pushes the issue to a conclusion, although it still allows state governments to impose stricter standards for equipment installed in new homes “in which there are no physical restrictions to prevent or hinder installation” of the equipment. On its website, the AHRI explains that the agreement establishes product performance requirements for three regions in the U.S.: the north (including Alaska), which has population-weighted heat degree days (HDDs) of 5,000 or more; the south, with HDDs of less than 5,000; and the southwest which includes Arizona, California, Nevada, and New Mexico.A long-term planFactoring in the added cost of more-efficient equipment, the regional standards, which AHRI notes are allowed under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, are expected to save consumers about $13 billion between 2013, when the standards take effect, and 2030. AHRI estimates that the new standards will raise the minimum efficiency of residential central air conditioning systems by about 8% and furnaces by about 13%. By 2030, those standards are expected to have reduced the overall heating energy load by 5% and the cooling energy load by 6%.The energy efficiency advocates that signed the agreement include the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy, the Alliance to Save Energy, the Natural Resources Defense Council, the Northeast Energy Efficiency Partnership, the Appliance Standards Awareness Project, the California Energy Commission, and the Northwest Power and Conservation Council. The signatories jointly sent the agreement to Congress for possible inclusion in climate legislation (the proposed American Clean Energy and Security Act is still making the rounds on Capitol Hill).A realist’s approachIn terms of its long-range strategic merits, the agreement seems like a good thing for all concerned. As a recent New York Times story on the subject notes, the HVAC manufacturers not only have reached agreement on future product-performance standards and reached better terms than they might if they’d negotiated with the Department of Energy, they also have time to gear up to meet those standards.“Being able to look at the agreements that are being put in place here allows us to put a template in place for the next 10 years, really,” Bob McDonough, president of residential and light commercial systems for Carrier, told the Times.last_img read more
