Feeney has reservations about Giving Pledge

first_imgFeeney has reservations about Giving Pledge Tagged with: Ireland Major gift Speaking in Dublin last week, Chuck Feeney, one of the world’s major philanthropists, has told Irish journalist Conor O’Cleary that he has some reservations about The Giving Pledge, the effort by Warren Buffett together with Bill and Melinda Gates to persuade wealthy Americans to commit at least half their fortunes to charity.“I support it, but it doesn’t go far enough,” Mr Feeney said in an .Feeney, who made his money from duty-free and who is the leading philanthropist in Ireland, is unique among donors in that he has already committed all his wealth to the Atlantic Philanthropies foundation.“Giving While Living makes it clear, The Giving Pledge doesn’t,” Mr Feeney said.Mr Feeney said that last year be had attended the first gathering in New York initiated by the Gates and Buffet to elicit discussion among a small group of philanthropists about how to encourage greater giving among those with huge wealth. Although he was invited to participate in The Giving Pledge at its public roll-out, he declined. He said that he didn’t feel he need to join formally, since he had already donated his entire fortune. “Nevertheless I support the initiative”, he said, “with which some 35 wealthy individuals and couples are now associated, and I remain open-minded as to how I might contribute to its further development and the ensuing process.”He is not convinced that the Giving Pledge will translate easily into “productive philanthropy”, not least because of the issues of spouses and family members objecting to “the signing away of half the family silver by well-meaning people of wealth”. He added that he suspects little is actually happening since the wealthy individuals made their public pledges.www.atlanticphilanthropies.org AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  17 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 2 November 2010 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Investigation identifies 500 Catholic priests and clergy accused of sex abuse in Illinois

first_imgGregory_DUBUS/iStock(NEW YORK) — A new investigation by the Illinois attorney general’s office has identified 500 priests and clergy members with credible claims of sexual abuse against them, all of whom have not been previously identified by church officials and some of whom are still active within the church.On Wednesday, outgoing Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan released the preliminary findings of an investigation that her office launched in August of this year.Before her office’s investigation, the six diocese in Illinois had publicly named 140 priests with claims against them. After Madigan’s investigation began, the Catholic Church named an additional 45 priests themselves.But Madigan’s investigation has found 500 separate priests and clergy with credible abuse claims against them, according to Maura Possley, the communications director for the attorney general.“Because I know that the church has too often ignored survivors of clergy sexual assault, I want to share the initial findings from our work,” Madigan said in a statement released along with her preliminary findings on Wednesday.The Illinois report is the latest update in connection with a string of ongoing investigations into sex abuse within the Catholic church across the country.The names of the 500 priests and clergy have not been publicly released by Madigan’s office and Possley noted that the investigation is ongoing.Possley confirmed that some of the 500 priests and clergy are active ministry, but did not disclose how many and noted that the investigation into the accusations against them continues.Of the 185 priests and clergy identified by the Archdiocese of Chicago and the five other diocese in Illinois, each individual is listed as either deceased or liaised, which means they have been removed from the church, except for three individuals in Springfield who were classified as “not active in ministry.”In the statement released by Madigan’s office, it notes that Madigan “anticipates additional names will be disclosed as her office’s investigation continues.”“While the findings are preliminary, they demonstrate the need for and importance of continuing this investigation,” Madigan said in the statement.Madigan chose not to seek re-election for a fifth term so she will be leaving office in January, but her successor, Kwame Raoul, posted on Twitter Wednesday that he is “committed to continuing this work when I begin my term as attorney general.”Madigan’s report states that the her office “found multiple examples where the Illinois Dioceses failed to notify law enforcement or DCFS [Department of Children and Family Services] of allegations they received related to clergy sexual abuse of minors” and noted that different dioceses used different criteria to determine whether a claim against an individual should be considered credible.“While the Illinois Dioceses have touted their ‘independent audits’ as evidence that they are adequately responding to clergy sexual abuse allegations, the audits are seemingly not designed to discover clergy abuse, but rather are perfunctory, ‘check the box’ exercises done in a routine manner by the same entity nationwide, using a process that does not appear to involve a systematic review of the contents of files or the decisions a diocese made,” the report states.Cardinal Blase Cupich, the archbishop of Chicago, released a statement expressing his “profound regret of the whole church for our failures to address the scourge of clerical sexual abuse.”“There can be no doubt about the constant need to strengthen our culture of healing, protection, and accountability. While the vast majority of abuses took place decades ago, many victim-survivors continue to live with this unimaginable pain,” Cupich said in his statement.The archdiocese noted in the statement that they “stand ready to cooperate with all institutions and agencies that care for children.”There are now at least 16 jurisdictions across the country that have launched investigations into clerical sex abuse following the release of a Pennsylvania grand jury report detailing the alleged cover-up of decades of abuse by hundreds of Catholic priests.In addition to the ongoing Illinois investigation, officials in Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia and the District of Columbia — as well as the Archdiocese of Anchorage in Alaska — told ABC News their offices were reviewing their options and considering taking similar action.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

16-year-old STEM school shooting suspect to be tried as adult, judge rules

first_imgKuzma/iStock(DENVER) — A 16-year-old will be tried as an adult for his alleged role in a shooting at a Colorado school that killed one student and injured eight others, a judge has ruled.Alec McKinney, 16, and Devon Erickson, 18, face multiple charges including first-degree murder after allegedly opening fire inside the STEM School Highlands Ranch near Denver on May 7.Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old student who tried to confront the shooters, was killed.Judge Jeffrey K. Holmes on Wednesday rejected a request by McKinney’s attorneys to try the teenager as a juvenile.“Based on the totality of the evidence before it, the Court finds that it is has not been proved that the juvenile and the community would be better served by transferring this case to juvenile court,” Holmes wrote in his decision.“The evidence before the court at this stage of the proceedings indicates that McKinney’s actions were not spontaneous, but purposeful and planned,” the judge wrote. “Over many days he contemplated violent action, whether to frighten others or to cause them bodily harm.”The judge noted that McKinney — who was born biologically female but identifies as male — has experienced “serious trauma” in his life, including an abusive father, drug use, depression and thoughts of suicide.District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement, “I am satisfied and pleased that the court agreed that this mass shooting case should be resolved in adult court.”“It is my intention to move forward without any additional delay towards the jury trial to which the defendant is entitled,” Brauchler said.Kendrick Castillo’s father told The Denver Post he was “elated” with the judge’s decision.Erickson does not have a date set for his arraignment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Royal Navy’s Next-Generation Merlin Helicopter Debuts at Sea

first_img View post tag: Merlin View post tag: Naval View post tag: Debuts View post tag: sea October 3, 2012 Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy’s Next-Generation Merlin Helicopter Debuts at Sea Training & Education View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Helicoptercenter_img Share this article View post tag: Navy The Navy’s next-generation Merlin helicopter has made its debut at sea with 12 days of trials aboard HMS Illustrious. The first of 30 new and enhanced Mk2 Merlins flew ten sorties on and off the flight deck of the helicopter carrier in the Western Approaches.Being guided safely down on to the deck of HMS Illustrious, this is the future of Fleet Air Arm submarine hunting.And pirate-busting.And smuggler-strangling.And drug-runner-catching.This is the next-generation Merlin making its debut at sea, during a dozen-day period of trials aboard the helicopter carrier off the South Coast.Outwardly, the Mk2 looks pretty much identical to the Mk1 which has become the Fleet Air Arm’s ‘helicopter of choice’ in support of the RN’s global operations, and the counter-piracy/smuggling/terrorism mission east of Suez in particular.But as part of a £750m revamp 30 of the Culdrose-based helicopters, which have been in front-line service with the Royal Navy since 2001, are being stripped out inside and computer wizardry which was state of the art in the late ’90s is being replaced with today’s latest tech.In a nutshell, that means the ability to find and track more potential targets on or below the surface of the ocean, not least submarines operating closer to shore.Aircrew will receive improved night vision goggles and enhanced fast-roping facilities for Royal Marines boarding teams are being installed – vital for those east of Suez missions.And state-of-the-art touch screens are being fitted to make things easier for the fliers to operate.This first Mk2 – tail number ZH826 – spent 12 days flying on to and off the deck of Lusty as a 34-strong trials team – drawn from the Fleet Air Arm, constructors AgustaWestland, defence giant Lockheed Martin and experts of the Air Test and Evaluation Centre at Boscombe Down – assessed the improved helicopter’s performance.The first of the new features to be tested was the navigation system – and in particular how it fared when it couldn’t call upon any GPS satellite data, one of the most strenuous, but not unlikely, conditions, Merlin aircrew may encounter.During the ten test sorties ZH826 made from the deck of the Portsmouth-based carrier off Plymouth and out into the wider Atlantic, reams of data were collected, while the flight crew and assessors recorded their observations for the Mk2 team to evaluate once back on dry land.Whenever possible the aircrew flashed up other new systems on the Mk2 to see how it will operate from a Royal Navy warship at sea once the upgraded helicopter enters service over the next couple of years.When the Merlin was on the deck, tours of the new-look aircraft were given to Lusty’s Commanding Officer, Capt Martin Connell, his deputy Cdr Matt Harvey, and officer cadets.ZH826 has now returned to Boscombe Down for continued trials and evaluations, while Illustrious sailed from Portsmouth yesterday to begin her part in the Royal Navy’s key autumn deployment to the Mediterranean, Cougar 12.Merlin Mk2 is one of two next-generation helicopters currently undergoing trials; also joining the Fleet Air Arm inventory over the next two years is the Wildcat, 21st-Century successor to the Lynx.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, October 3, 2012; Image: RN Royal Navy’s Next-Generation Merlin Helicopter Debuts at Sea View post tag: Royal View post tag: Next-Generation View post tag: Atlast_img read more

Royal Navy frigate returns from nine-month deployment

first_img Royal Navy frigate HMS Portland returned home to Plymouth on Friday concluding her nine-month deployment.HMS Portland was welcomed to HM Naval Base Devonport by a crowd of family and friends while 42 lucky family members got an insight into life at sea by sailing as special guests on board from Portugal.Since leaving Devonport last June the ship has travelled over 40,000 miles through the North Atlantic, Mediterranean and Indian, Pacific and South Atlantic oceans.HMS Portland’s deployment included three strategic chokepoints in the Middle East; the Suez Canal, the Bab El-Mandeb Strait and the Strait of Hormuz, through which over 40 percent of the world’s merchant traffic passes, and where the frigate helped to ensure the uninterrupted flow of global trade.The ship has also taken part in counter-narcotics patrols in the Indian Ocean and North Atlantic, and afforded reassurance to the UK’s overseas territories. Interacting with the governments, armed forces or law-enforcement agencies of 26 other nations, the Type 23 frigate has been tasked with a wide range of defence engagement activity, including a range of operations or exercises at sea and diplomatic or training events alongside.HMS Portland assisted in the rescue of 15 sailors from a sinking fishing dhow in the Indian Ocean, and evacuated a critically ill person from remote Tristan da Cunha in the South Atlantic.The crew has also raised over £5,000 for charity and will now enjoy extended leave while HMS Portland enters an extensive upgrade period to receive new radars, engines and even the new Sea Ceptor missile system.HMS Portland’s captain, Captain Paul Stroude, 43, said, “We return with a mixture of feelings, firstly with huge pride in our achievements and joy at seeing our families again after months away. Also, the ship’s company will now disperse to new jobs and others postings in the Navy as the ship enters a period in upkeep to renew her for her next phase of her service. We have formed long-lasting close bonds, so it is a bit sad to leave our shipmates after an intense hardworking time.’’Captain Stroude, who now goes onto another posting, added, “This has been a challenging and hugely varied deployment that has tested my ship and her company. Despite encountering temperatures ranging from sub-zero near the Antarctic to over 50 degrees in the Gulf, we have continued to deliver all that was asked of us.’’ View post tag: Sea Ceptor View post tag: HMS Portland Royal Navy frigate returns from nine-month deployment Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Navy frigate returns from nine-month deployment View post tag: Royal Navy March 13, 2017 Share this articlelast_img read more
