first_img Reply 4 COMMENTS Everybody loves Anthony.Across the country, people are paying tribute to (and capitalizing on) America’s most in-demand coronavirus expert.That’d be Anthony Fauci, the longtime head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the NIH. He’s earned fame for (gently) correcting President Trump on the coronavirus — and generally being a steady hand on the wheel when our societal dumpster fire feels like it could careen off the rails at any moment.The Fauci fanatics have something to sell youTheir wares are a new spin on the booming (and puzzling) business of coronavirus merchandise. The Washington Post surveyed the Fauci Industrial Complex and found some pretty wild products:A New York bakery fried up a sensation with a Fauci-themed (and buttercream-frosted) doughnut.A Long Island restaurant is serving up Fauci linguine with white clam sauce (pickup only, because we gotta obey social distancing even when we’re hungry).You can even buy a replica of Fauci’s high-school basketball uniform.Spiritual types can plunk down $20 for a Fauci prayer candle.Prefer eBay? Listings there include a YOUNG GLOSSY (???) pic of a more youthful Fauci ($9.99) and a Fauci trading card ($99.99). If you’re so bored in isolation that you’re trading corona-cards, please, call a friend. Tenita Reid Tenita Reid I couldn’t help but notice Dr. Fauci patting that military dude in the camo outfit on his back, and how close he was to peoples’ personal space, after that virus briefing with the president, and that whole bunch yesterday. He wasn’t practicing what he has been a preachin’….bad dr! bad dr.!……… Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Is Fauci’ s job safe, can Trump fire him? Because if he works for the feds, he will soon be out of a job, most likely. He better hope he can get his pension, because Trump is one cruel dude who wouldn’ t mind giving Fauci a pink slip, and a boot out the door. Trump doesn’ t like Fauci’s popularity, nor his correcting him. The Anatomy of Fear April 6, 2020 at 10:49 pm Sorry, but I just don’t get the Fauci mania nor the fascination with the good doctor. I believe he is very informed and educated in his field, but I certainly don’t want to eat a dang donut with his mug on it, and that goes for Dr. Oz and Dr. Phil too….barf barf, yuck April 6, 2020 at 11:21 pm Please enter your comment! Tenita Reid If you thought corona merch was too much, wait till you see the Fauci-conomyBy The Hustle Reply Reply I wonder where is Trump’ s long red neck tie? It seems to have disappeared.

Mind shops see best ever month in charity’s retail history

first_imgMind shops see best ever month in charity’s retail history Among its findings, it has revealed that: Melanie May | 25 May 2021 | News Tagged with: charity retail COVID-19 Volunteering AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Mind is now calling for further support from the public, with a need for more volunteers to help sort, price and sell donations. 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. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Other charities have also reported good starts. Back in April, Sense reported a record-breaking return to trading on the first day of non-essential retail reopening. It reopened 107 of its shops across England and Wales on the 12 April, and recorded an 85% increase on its previous one-day sales record set on Saturday 5 December 2020. Looking forward, Ed Fleming, Managing Director at Savoo commented: In related news, money-saving and online fundraising platform Savoo recently analysed the 20 most populated cities in the UK to determine which are the most charitable, looking at average monthly Google searches related to charity, the number of charity shops according to Google Maps, the average rating given by customers and the average weekly household expenditure on charitable donations. The discount code website also ranked countries according to their generosity.  Like other charities forced to close shops during the pandemic, Mind is predicting significant loss of retail generated income since the first lockdown – £13m in its case. At the same time it has seen a huge increase in demand for its information and support services, of which Mind shops have always been a key source of funding.Last year, 20 million people accessed Mind’s online and print information – the highest on record, and there were 117k mental health queries responded to by the charity’s information team via phone, email and webchat. The increased demand on the charity, and decreased funds, means Mind shops, like those of many charities, need volunteers and donations more than ever.And, after months of Mind shops being closed, and a surge in sales since reopening, stock levels across shops are low. It was winter when Mind’s shops closed so clothing for the spring and summer months is particularly needed. According to the charity, the average bag of items donated to one of its shops is worth around £30 – and 25% more if the donor signs up for Gift Aid.Andrew Vale, Managing Director of Mind Retail, said: Advertisement The British Heart Foundation also reported its busiest ever day for its network of charity shops when the third national lockdown was partially lifted in April, achieving £1m in sales. Brighton & Hove, Nottingham and Belfast are the most charitable cities in the UK.Brighton and Hove has highest volume of monthly Google searches for terms related to charity (92,100).Besides having the biggest quantity of charity shops and the highest number of average Google searches for keywords related to charity, London has less than 1 charity shop per square mile and the lowest overall ratings for charity shops on Google Maps.Nottingham has six charity shops per square mile, more than any other city. There are more than two million average monthly Google searches for charity-related terms in the UK Mind’s 160 charity shops across England and Wales have raised £1.5m in the first month since reopening their doors to customers – the best month ever in Mind’s retail history. “We predict that charity shops will continue to have a deep impact on retail consumption across the UK – especially after the challenges of the last year. It’s a wonderful way to find interesting items at cheaper prices, save money and help causes we deeply care about.”  255 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 “This record-breaking month is testament to the tireless efforts of our dedicated volunteers and staff, as well as our generous donors and customers. Raising £1.5million in a month is incredible, and much-needed, to make up for the losses incurred by forced shop closures throughout the pandemic.“Our wonderful staff and volunteers are doing incredible things – but they could do so much more with extra hands and donations. Due to the challenges of the pandemic, many volunteers have been unable to return – leaving shops struggling to cope. Volunteering doesn’t need to be a big time-consuming commitment –  and volunteers benefit from the opportunity to build their confidence, skills and gain qualifications.“Ongoing support from staff, volunteers, donors and customers is crucial to make sure Mind’s shops can survive in this challenging climate facing our high streets.”last_img read more

Monsanto and Novozymes Announce BioAg Alliance

first_img Monsanto and Novozymes are teaming up to transform research and commercialization of sustainable microbial products that will provide a new platform of solutions for growers around the world. They’ve announced a long-term strategic alliance — the BioAg Alliance — which will allow the companies to leverage employees, technologies and commercial assets in their agricultural biological portfolios.  The alliance will bring Novozymes’ commercial BioAg operations and capabilities within microbial discovery, development and production together with Monsanto’s microbial discovery, advanced biology, field testing and commercial capabilities. This will result in a comprehensive research, development and commercial collaboration to help farmers globally meet the challenge of producing more with less in a sustainable way. Novozymes CEO Peder Holk Nielsen says this game-changing alliance has the potential to transform global agriculture. He says the combined capabilities of these two companies create an innovation powerhouse with a unique opportunity and approach to unleash the transformational opportunity in naturally derived microbial solutions in agriculture. Monsanto Chief Technology Officer Dr. Robb Fraley says this collaboration will take Monsanto’s biological work from a technology to a full-fledged platform that represents the next layer of opportunity for growers to drive yield and productivity while helping the preservation of the Earth’s finite natural resources.

Freshmen shine in TCU’s blowout of Louisiana Tech

first_imgFacebook ReddIt Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ TCU rowing program strengthens after facing COVID-19 setbacks First TCU spring game since 2018 gets fans primed for a highly-anticipated fall Colin Post is a Sports Broadcasting and Journalism double-major from Houston, Texas. Along with sports writing, Colin hopes to work in sports announcing after he graduates. + posts printPeople say, “It’s not about how you start, but about how you finish.” That could not be more true about the 2020 TCU Football team. The Frogs have now won five of their last six games after blowing out Louisiana Tech 52-10 at home on Saturday night behind career days from two of their most exciting freshmen.“The bottom line is: we’ve gotten better,” head coach Gary Patterson said. “I think we’ve had addition by subtraction. I told the guys in pregame, ‘They’ve grown up.’”Wide receiver Quentin Johnston had a career-high 133 receiving yards and running back Zach Evans had a career-high 130 rushing yards, as the rookies gave TCU fans more than enough to be excited about for the years to come.The duo combined for four-straight touchdowns over a span of 15 minutes of play, with both players going for scores of over 75 yards.“Those guys are good football players,” Patterson said of his true freshmen. “You also have to give the offensive line credit for the simple reason [that] you’re down to guys who haven’t played very much.”On TCU’s first play of the second quarter, Johnston fought through pass interference to catch a deep ball from quarterback Max Duggan, leaving his defender in the dust for a 76-yard score.The freshman then took a bow, seemingly signifying the start of what could be an illustrious career in the purple and white. After totaling 114 yards receiving last week, he became the first TCU player to record 100 yards receiving in consecutive weeks since Josh Doctson did so in six-straight weeks in 2015.Running back Kendre Miller also showed signs of brilliance in the season-closer of his freshman campaign, putting up a career-high 136 yards on the ground thanks to an 89-yard score near the end of the fourth quarter.On defense, the Frogs were just as sharp. Cornerback C.J. Ceasar set up two different touchdowns for TCU with a career-high two interceptions. Defensive end Ochaun Mathis collected two of the Frogs’ five sacks to extend his team-high to nine on the year.Patterson referred to Mathis after the game as someone who will be “a force to be reckoned with” in years to come.Defensive end Ochaun Mathis records one of his two sacks in a matchup with Louisiana Tech on Dec. 12, 2020. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Patterson dug into his bag of tricks on TCU’s opening offensive possession and came up empty. The Frogs ran the wildcat with freshman wide receiver Chase Curtis on fourth-and-2 near the Bulldogs goal line, but the play fell apart as soon as it started, resulting in a turnover on downs.For the rest of the first half, TCU could not have played much better. The Frogs rattled off 31-straight points, shutting out an opponent in the first half for the first time since Nov. 9, 2019, against Baylor.After the Frogs settled for a field goal on their second drive, Ceasar’s first interception put TCU right on Louisiana Tech’s doorstep. Two plays later, Duggan scored with his legs from five yards out.The touchdown was the sophomore’s 10th rushing touchdown of the year. He is the first TCU quarterback to rush for double-digit touchdowns since 2016 when Kenny Hill also ran for 10.Johnston’s receiving touchdown came next, followed by a score from Evans, followed by a Johnston score on the ground via the jet sweep.Before Louisiana Tech could blink, it was halftime, and TCU was up 31-0. A new half brought more dominance from the Frogs. On the first play of the second half, Evans broke a few tackles and burst down the left sideline for a 75-yard touchdown, throwing up a peace sign as he crossed the goal line.Ceasar’s second pick of the night provided more opportunities for the TCU offense, and Miller took advantage. The running back took a carry 38 yards untouched to the house, capping off a streak of five-straight touchdowns scored by the Frogs.“It was great for Ceasar because he’s been kind of getting picked on,” Patterson said. “For him to get a couple picks is kind of a blessing in the positive.”TCU did not bring out Jordy Sandy to punt until there were just under four minutes left in the third quarter and backup Matthew Downing was in at quarterback.The Bulldogs finally got something going on their first drive of the fourth quarter, marching 83 yards in 14 yards to score their lone touchdown of the day.From there, TCU tried to run the clock out, but Miller found a hole and took it to the end zone for his second score of the day.The Frogs finished with 333 yards rushing, leaving little need for a passing game. Nevertheless, Duggan made use of the throws he took, going 10-for-13 for 167 yards and a score.TCU head coach Gary Patterson walks the sideline during the Frogs’ 52-10 win over Louisiana Tech on Dec. 12, 2020. (Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer)Linebacker Garret Wallow finished with 13 tackles (1.5 of them for a loss), a sack, a quarterback hit and a forced fumble in what will likely be his last home game in a TCU uniform.The Frogs finish the regular season at 6-4 and fifth in the Big 12. TCU now awaits its bowl selection, which will be decided next Sunday, Dec. 20.“We have a lot of confidence going in knowing that we won five of the last six games,” safety La’Kendrick Van Zandt said of bowl season. “As long as we stay focused as a team, confidence will just come with it.” Colin Posthttps://www.tcu360.com/author/colin-post/ Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Another series win lands TCU Baseball in the top 5, earns Sikes conference award Taylor’s monster slam highlights big weekend for TCU Athletics ReddIt Twitter Colin Post Wide receiver Quentin Johnston walks into the end zone after scoring a 76-yard touchdown during the Frogs’ 52-10 win over Louisiana Tech on Dec. 12, 2020.

Israeli security forces block broadcast of “Good Morning Jerusalem”

first_imgNews News PalestineMiddle East – North Africa RSF_en Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists Reporters Without Borders is outraged by the arbitrary and illegal Israeli police raid of 6 June on Palmedia, the Palestinian Authority’s media centre in East Jerusalem.The media centre includes a Palestine TV bureau and the studios of the very popular weekly programme “Good Morning Jerusalem,” which was being broadcast live as the raid took place.The show’s producer, Nader Beibars, and Palmedia cameraman Ashraf Al-Showeiki were arrested during the raid, interrogated, and released after 90 minutes.“This raid, and the broadcast shut-down, join the long list of violations of Palestinian news media rights by the Israeli security forces, with never-ending threats, arrests and military operations,” Reporters Without Borders said.“The Israeli authorites keep on persecuting the Palestinian media and journalists. After seizing Al-Wattan TV’s tranmission equipment in 2012, the military are now theatening it with another raid on the grounds that it obtained its new frequency illegally.” The raid of June 6 cut short broadcasting of “Good Morning Jerusalem.” Presenter May Abu Assab said she was threatened and ordered to stop the broadcast, which was about the hunger strike that around 100 Palestinian administrative detainees began on 24 April to demand their release. An Israeli police spokesperson nonetheless denied that the broadcast was stopped. “No programmes were interrupted and the investigation is ongoing,” she said.Palmedia spokespeson Luba Samri told Agence France-Presse: “Police carried out searches at the headquarters of the television channel as part of an investigation into the content of its programmes.”The Israeli police said Palestine TV did not have the required broadcasting permists, while Iraeli public radio said the Israeli police suspected the station of broadcast incitements to violence and terrorism.The raid came amid tension following demonstrations in Palestinian cities to mark the “Naksa,” the defeat of the Palestinians by the Israelis in the Six-Day War in 1967.

Eddy, still keeping up appearances, pretended to be devastated over the news that her friend had been found dead, tweeting, “Rest easy Skylar, you’ll ALWAYS be my best friend,” with a photo montage of her and Neese together, and the words “worst day of my whole life.” rest easy skylar, you’ll ALWAYS be my bestfriend. i miss you more than you could ever know. pic.twitter.com/g6UaDf9Vfb— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) March 13, 2013 #tweetapicturethatdescribesyourfriendship @_racchh pic.twitter.com/oiqn6r7Q— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) October 31, 2012 happpy birthdayy @young_muffintop!— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) July 7, 2012 no one on this earth can handle me and rachel if you think you can you’re wrong— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) November 5, 2012 Lakin Correctional Center(STAR CITY, W.Va.) — Sixteen-year-old Skylar Neese never made it back home after she snuck out of her Star City, West Virginia, home after midnight on July 6, 2012, to meet up with her two friends, Rachel Shoaf and Sheila Eddy, both of whom were the same age.After Neese went missing, her mother said Eddy told her that the three of them had been driving around town that night getting high before she and Shoaf had dropped Neese off at the end of the road from her apartment building so that Neese could sneak back in. The surveillance camera on Neese’s apartment building captured her sneaking out and getting into a car at around 12:30 a.m.As the investigation into Neese’s disappearance continued, suspicion mounted that the girls were harboring a secret. A few months later, Shoaf suffered a nervous breakdown. Then, on Jan. 3, 2013, she confessed to her attorney and police that she had stabbed Neese to death with Eddy. She agreed to lead authorities to Neese’s remains, which were in a wooded area over the Pennsylvania state line, about 20 miles from Star City.“We asked Rachel, ‘Why did you guys kill Skylar?’ And her only answer to that was, ‘We just didn’t like her,’” State Police Cpl. Ronnie Gaskin told “20/20” in a previous interview.Neese’s parents told “20/20” that the three high school sophomores used to be inseparable. But in the days leading up to her death, Neese’s Twitter account, which was eventually deleted, showed that something had gone awry.On July 4, 2012, two days before she was murdered, Neese tweeted, “It really doesn’t take much to p*** me off,” and, “Sick of being at f****** home. Thanks ‘friends,’ love hanging out with you all too.”The day before she was killed, Neese tweeted, “you doing s*** like that is why I can NEVER completely trust you.”Neese’s last tweet, sent out hours before she snuck out of her bedroom window, was a retweet from a friend who had posted, “All I do is hope.”Prior to Shoaf’s confession and before the truth about Neese’s disappearance was revealed, Eddy remained active on Twitter, posting regularly about her thoughts and day-to-day activities as authorities searched for her “missing” friend. In hindsight of Neese’s murder, several tweets from Eddy seemed disturbing.Eddy’s first tweet on July 7, 2012, the day after she and Shoaf killed Neese, was a message to a friend wishing her a happy birthday:center_img staying home on tuesday is the best cause law and order svu is on all day— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) January 8, 2013 worst day of my whole life— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) March 13, 2013During her January 2013 confession, Shoaf had told authorities she and Eddy had planned Neese’s murder while in science class together. The plan was to pick Neese up from her house at night and drive to a remote area to smoke marijuana. Once they were in the woods, Shoaf said the plan was to count to three, then stab Neese to death.On March 30, 2013, Eddy tweeted “we really did go on three”:we really did go on three— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) April 1, 2013The following day, she tweeted:they say you remember the past better than it really was— shelia eddy (@_sheliiaa) April 1, 2013As the investigation continued, police determined that the car Neese had been seen getting into on surveillance footage was Eddy’s car and that blood found on the car belonged to Neese. On May 1, 2013, Eddy was arrested in a restaurant parking lot and Shoaf turned herself in to authorities. Both teens were charged with murder as adults.Eddy pleaded guilty to first-degree murder for her role in the killing. On Jan. 24, 2014, roughly 18 months after Neese’s death, she was sentenced to life in prison.Shoaf, who pleaded guilty to second-degree murder, was sentenced to 30 years in prison the following month.Today, both women are 23 years old and remain incarcerated at the Lakin Correctional Center in West Virginia.In memory of their daughter, Dave and Mary Neese helped pass Skylar’s Law in West Virginia. It requires Amber Alerts for all missing children, not only those believed to have been kidnapped.The Neeses also transformed the wooded area where their daughter’s body had been found into a memorial.“Something horrible happened here,” Neese’s father Dave Neese told “20/20” in a previous interview. “But I wanted to take the horrible thing that happened here and try to turn it into something good — a place that people can come and remember Skylar and remember the good little girl that she was, and not the little beast that they treated her like.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. In the months that followed, Eddy regularly tweeted about watching TV, school, hating homework and other typical teenage things. She even tweeted about her and Shoaf’s close friendship, writing in one tweet, “no one on this earth can handle me and rachel if you think you can you’re wrong.” Then, on Jan. 3, 2013, Shoaf confessed to stabbing Neese to death with Eddy and told authorities where they had left her body. Meanwhile, Eddy kept up appearances that everything was normal, tweeting about watching her favorite TV shows: “staying home on a Tuesday is the best cause law and order svu is on all day.”last_img read more
