Nominet launches online mental health funding programme

first_img Advertisement Nominet has launched a programme aimed at increasing the reach and impact of mental health services for young people and providing grants of over £500,000 to mental health and youth charities in the UK.  The Nominet #RESET Mental Health Programme will provide grants to charities including Barnardo’s, The Mix, Chasing the Stigma and YoungMinds to help them deliver a range of activities, including improving signposting online, developing new digital products, digitally transforming their organisation to meet demand, and creating best-practice guidance for those developing digital mental health products for young people.The launch follows Nominet research into charities, young people and digital mental health services, sector mapping activity, and an expert panel event to identify key challenges. Funding will be provided based on an in-depth consultation with each of its charity partners. Each one will invest in the development and delivery of their activities over an 18-month period from December 2019 with Nominet and its partners then share an impact and learning report each year to help others exploring the role of digital in this field.Eleanor Bradley, MD of Registry Solutions and Public Benefit at Nominet said:“Demand for mental health services has risen dramatically in the last five years, and at the same time the channels young people use to seek support have migrated to digital. Our research showed that many expert charities offering targeted support for specific needs when young people are most vulnerable or in crisis are at risk of falling behind digitally or need help to amplify what they offer, and we want to support these organisations to be at the forefront of digital mental health service provision.“As part of our commitment to public benefit, with a focus on driving initiatives that promote greater connectivity, inclusivity and security online, we believe our new funding programme #RESET will provide some much needed help.” “Working with these organisations we’re focused on our #RESET funding positively impacting as many young people as possible – reaching over 600,000 by December 2020 and up to 3 million over the next three years – with online mental health services that really make a difference.”Will there be further funding?Asked whether the fund would be repeated or made available to other organisations, Chris Ashworth, Head of Public Benefit at Nominet, said: “The current #RESET programme was a challenge fund for invited charity partners based on our research, as opposed to an open call for proposals. It’s too early to know what the fund will look like in the future, but we’re looking forward to seeing the progress and outcomes of each of the partners’ work to help inform any plans. The key is to provide support to these organisations at the forefront of digital mental health service provisions for positive outcomes for young people.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The Division bench comprising of Justice Siddharth Mridul and Justice Talwant Singh also directed the Director General of Prisons to ensure that the said order is conveyed to all the 3499 UTPs by telephone as well as through other respective mediums. The said direction came on the observation and recommendations made by the High Powered Committee’s meeting dated 17th February 2021 which recommended that the interim bails of the UTPs must not be extended. The High Court vide order dated 18th February had further extended the interim bails of the UTPs for 15 days. In doing so, it directed Kanwaljeet Arora, Member Secretary, DSLSA, to put on record the Minutes of Meeting of the Committee held on 17.02.2021 before the next date of hearing. According to the Minutes of the meeting, it was observed that the benefits of interim bail granted in such circumstances, “cannot be to the detriment of social order.””Members of the Committee have also gone through the Minutes of last meeting wherein, it is resolved that if the situation of COVID-19 in Delhi remains the same or reveals a declining trend, no further extension of interim bail shall be made by this Committee on the aspect of COVID-19. All such UTPs thus were adequately notified to move their respective Courts seeking regular bail through their private counsel or by panel lawyer of DSLSA, as the case may be, for grant of regular bail.” The minutes of meeting read. In view of this, the High Court was not inclined to further extend the period of interim bail of 3499 UTPs. However the Court clarified that all UTPs may invoke the jurisdiction of concerned Court for grant of regular bail which may thereafter consider the same on merits, in accordance with law.

Thousand Oaks shooting: Officer told wife ‘I love you’ before running in to confront gunman

first_imgVentura County Sheriff(THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.) — The officer who was killed in Thousand Oaks told his wife he loved her before running in to confront the gunman at the Borderline Bar and Grill Wednesday night.Sgt. Ron Helus, a 29-year veteran of the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office, was speaking his wife on the phone “as he does several times during the shift, and said to her, ‘Hey, I got to go handle a call, I love you,’” Ventura County Sheriff Geoff Dean said during a press conference Thursday morning.Helus is survived by his wife and son. The sheriff’s department and the wider community are mourning the “hero” officer Thursday, who was one of the 12 people killed in the mass shooting in Southern California.“He was a great man,” Capt. Garo Kuredjian, the force’s public Information officer, told Good Morning America Thursday. “He was a cop’s cop, and we miss him. We miss him already and we’re in mourning as an agency. We’re in mourning as a community.”There were hundreds of people packed inside Borderline Bar and Grill when a gunman burst inside throwing smoke grenades and firing dozens of rounds, witnesses and authorities said.Immediately following Helus’ death, Dean held back tears as he remembered Helus during a press conference, ABC-owned station KABC reported.Helus was one of the first on the scene and was struck multiple times when he went through the front door, the sheriff’s office said. Dean said Helus undoubtedly saved lives by going in to confront the gunman.“Ron was a hardworking, dedicated sheriff’s sergeant,” Dean said, according to KABC.“He was totally committed. He gave his all and tonight, as I told his wife, he died a hero because he went in to save lives, to save other people,” Dean added.The Ventura County Sheriff’s Office announced that a procession will be held for Helus at 10:00 a.m. today.“Sgt. Helus will be transported via motorcade from Los Robles Hospital to westbound Janss Road,” the department said in a statement. “From there, the motorcade will travel southbound on Lynn Road to US 101 northbound to the Ventura County Medical Examiner’s Office in the city of Ventura.”“Ron’s selfless, heroic actions will never be forgotten. Our hearts go out to his family and friends during this difficult time,” the department added.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Stampede in Houston mall after man issues public threat

first_imgABC News(HOUSTON) — Chaos ensued at the Memorial City Mall in Houston, Texas, this weekend when a masked man jumped on a table in the food court and proclaimed he was going to kill himself, sending hundreds of panicked people fleeing.Constable Ted Heap of the Houston Police Department said the incident took place Sunday around 3:15 p.m. and the suspect was a white male in his late teens or early twenties.Heap told reporters the suspect “put on what appears to be a half mask … kind of a red mask, came down the escalators, came down to the food court, and then at a slow trot went through the food court. About halfway through the food court he jumped up on a table and declared that he was going to kill himself.”“He had something in a bag,” Heap continued. “At that point he had thrown down the bag. Of course, at this point we had chaos. People started fleeing.”The suspect, according to the police, allegedly made his way through the south entrance of the mall toward a block of apartment complexes.A 16-year old boy and his mother were treated for ankle and leg injuries after the chaos, officials said.Police indicated the suspect remains at large and could face possible charges of making terroristic threats.“We don’t take this type of thing lightly,” said Houston Police Assistant Chief Sheryl Victorian.“We had an explosive detection dog … come out and check the evidence that the suspect dropped on the scene. In the end there was no evidence of an explosive device … we have not determined exactly what that item is,” Victorian continued.This is not the first incident of the public panicking over a possible threat in the aftermath of the El Paso and Dayton shootings.Just last week thousands of people who were crowded into a packed Times Square fled in panic after a motorcycle backfired and caused fears over a possible active shooter.Heap suggested that it was challenging for law enforcement to deal with these kinds of incidents.“Our job is to keep people safe and to neutralize any threat. We’ve got uniforms from a lot of different agencies — federal agencies, state, local agencies, county, city — so there’s a lot of police officers involved here who have joined together to try to be sure that this is a safe scene,” Heap said.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

A 120-year record of resilience to environmental change in brachiopods

first_imgThe inability of organisms to cope in changing environments poses a major threat to their survival. Rising carbon dioxide concentrations, recently exceeding 400 μatm, are rapidly warming and acidifying our oceans. Current understanding of organism responses to this environmental phenomenon is based mainly on relatively short‐ to medium‐term laboratory and field experiments, which cannot evaluate the potential for long‐term acclimation and adaptation, the processes identified as most important to confer resistance. Here, we present data from a novel approach that assesses responses over a centennial timescale showing remarkable resilience to change in a species predicted to be vulnerable. Utilising museum collections allows the assessment of how organisms have coped with past environmental change. It also provides a historical reference for future climate change responses. We evaluated a unique specimen collection of a single species of brachiopod (Calloria inconspicua) collected every decade from 1900 to 2014 from one sampling site. The majority of brachiopod shell characteristics remained unchanged over the past century. One response, however, appears to reinforce their shell by constructing narrower punctae (shell perforations) and laying down more shell. This study indicates one of the most calcium‐carbonate‐dependent species globally to be highly resilient to environmental change over the last 120 years and provides a new insight for how similar species might react and possibly adapt to future change.last_img read more

Lamar Odom opens up about near-death experience, ‘overcoming tragedy’

first_imgMay 28, 2019 /Sports News – National Lamar Odom opens up about near-death experience, ‘overcoming tragedy’ FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailMatt Petit/ABC(NEW YORK) — Just a few years ago Lamar Odom seemed to have it all with his booming NBA career and marriage to Khloe Kardashian. But in 2015, Odom’s world came crashing down after a near-death experience at a Las Vegas brothel.In his new memoir, Darkness to Light, Odom is opening for the first time about the intimate details of his life and battle with addiction.“It’s not a story just about…the Kardashians, or drugs,” Odom said in an interview with ABC News’ Juju Chang. “It’s really a story of triumph, and overcoming obstacles.”“And tragedy,” Odom added. “Overcoming tragedy.”Odom, 40, said the roller coaster ride of his life — reaching the highest of highs and lowest of lows — began at just 12 years old when his mother died of cancer.“You’re looking to…fill that void, you know, with things,” he said. “And, you know, some things I was trying to fill that void with were destructive.”Odom said that for a long time his drug of choice was cocaine, and he admitted the first time he tried it was during a sexual encounter.“It’s toxic,” he said of the combination. “It was like unleashing of a demon.”“I was professional at hiding it,” he added. “Khloe didn’t know for a long time.”‘I couldn’t believe how I was treating that queen like that’Khloe Kardashian and Odom wed in 2009 after a whirlwind, one-month romance. Marrying into the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family thrust his whole life into the spotlight.“I mean, I loved it,” he admitted. “A red carpet is rolled out for you everywhere you go…What’s not to love about that?”“And at that time, when we shot [Khloe and Lamar]…I was playing really good basketball,” he added.“I don’t really think there’s ever gonna be another NBA player to be on a number-one reality show, playing high-level basketball,” he said.And yet he says at the same time he was hiding his drug use and sex addiction from Kardashian, saying, “you don’t want your wife to know that you’re sniffing coke and … having sex with other women.”The secrets, however, were getting harder to hide, and Odom recalls one drug-induced rage where he threatened to kill his wife.“I’m pretty sure she had to be scared at that point in time,” he said. “I’m thinking about it now, like, I couldn’t believe how I was treating that queen like that.”Odom says he feels he owes “her and her family an apology. Big time.”“Her friends and family, they had to be embarrassed,” he added.Odom says at that point Kardashian kicked him out of the house.The Kardashian family declined ABC News’ request for comment.‘I’m a walking miracle’After the split, Odom said he then went to Love Ranch, a Las Vegas brothel to escape it all.“I was just thinking about trying to go have fun,” he said.After a four-day bender, he was found unresponsive, having suffered 12 seizures, six strokes and his heart stopping twice.“My doctors from Cedars-Sinai said, like, I’m a walking miracle,” he said.Odom says he doesn’t have any memory of taking drugs that day, let alone near-lethal doses.After completing a month-long stint in rehab in 2016, Odom says these days he will still have an occasional social drink, but he can’t remember the last time he has done cocaine.Although, “I smoke marijuana to this day, just to help with some anxiety,” he added.He said he also had “three, maybe four or five, ketamine treatments,” as part of his recovery program, saying, “I feel it’s helped with my anxiety a little bit.”During his recovery, Odom says he has also returned to training, boxing for at least an hour every day as well as weight training and practicing basketball.In his new memoir, Odom writes about someday seeing his mom again in heaven and telling her about his life.When asked what he would say to her if she were here right now, Odom said it would be: “I guess I made it … in some peoples’ eyes.”“I stumbled onto Good Morning America, Ma,” he added. “But I mean … the ride was, was rocky, but … I’m here.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

Investment in new homes is being strangled, says new report

first_imgHome » News » Land & New Homes » Investment in new homes is being strangled, says new report previous nextLand & New HomesInvestment in new homes is being strangled, says new reportSmall pension funds and other institutional investors lack the opportunities to invest in the residential market, according to a new report.Richard Reed13th July 202001,007 Views Smaller institutional investors are being locked out of investing in the UK residential market, a new report has found.UK residential is an attractive asset class for investors such as small pension funds, but there need to be more routes to market.Smaller investors default route to market is still investing directly via buy-to-let but this is a high-risk strategy, according to the study by report by Seven Dials Financial.It says the UK’s residential market is missing out on billions of pounds of potential investment from smaller institutional investors because of a lack of suitable investable vehicles,.The research, conducted by Cambridge Research and Investment Consultants (CamRIC), examined the UK residential market to determine the choice of investment vehicles available to the smaller investor investing under £2m.Barriers to small investorsThe headline finding of the report is that residential remains almost as impenetrable to the small or private investor as it was a decade ago.Despite the view that UK residential is maturing as a real estate sector, rapidly becoming a standard part of an institutional property portfolio, for the smaller institutional investor, the conventional way to allocate funds into UK housing is through a buy-to-let house or flat.Given the uncertain economic conditions created by Covid-19, many institutional investors both large and small will be looking to allocate their assets towards safe havens, of which UK residential is one.Residential property has performed well with strong house price growth in real terms, estimated at 2.6% between 1975 and 2019, while residential rents have inflation-matching characteristics – residential rents have grown by 3.9% p.a. compared with CPI growth of 2.6% in the period 1988-2019, the report finds.Encouraging more institutional investors will be vital for the growth of the Private Rented Sector (PRS) of UK residential.”Additionally, encouraging more institutional investors will be vital for the growth of the Private Rented Sector (PRS) of UK residential, particularly given that stamp duty tax changes are making it less feasible for the individual buy-to-let investor.Currently, institutions only account for £35bn of the more than £1 trillion PRS market, according to the 2019 Investment Property Forum (IPF) report, the Size and Structure of the UK Property Market.Residential REITsMickola Wilson, director at Seven Dials Financial says: “Much has been made of growing institutional investment into UK residential, but by effectively barring the smaller investor from being able to allocate their funds efficiently, the asset class risks losing out on significant amounts of capital that will be seeking a safe haven against the backdrop of the economic crisis caused by the pandemic.“Our findings show that aside from investing directly into buy-to-let, REITs remain the best bet, though the limited number of UK residential focussed REITs and the fact that these vehicles are vulnerable to stock market fluctuations means that for many smaller investors these may not prove suitable vehicles.”She said there was a number of new investment vehicles in the pipeline that may allow a greater amount of smaller institutional investors to enter the market.“There should now be concerted efforts to open this asset class up to a wider array of institutional investors, especially as today’s market conditions mean many managers will be looking to allocate their funds into safe havens,” she added.Seven Dials Financial Cambridge Research and Investment Consultants CamRIC Mickola Wilson Housing market investment new homes July 13, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?
