Coffee, Cops and Cows

first_img Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Anatomy of Fear On Saturday morning the Seminole County Sheriff’s Deputies converged on the Apopka Chick-fil-A at Hunt Club. It was not a sting operation or a cattle round-up.  It was Apopka’s third “Coffee with a Cop” event this year“This was an opportunity to meet the community one-on-one in a neutral setting,” according to a SCSO  spokesperson.Several Seminole County Deputies meet with the public 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM in a public and open setting to discuss the community’s concerns, answer specific questions and simply introduce the SCSO to the people of Apopka.Previous “Coffee With A Cop” events were hosted by the Apopka Police Department and the McDonald’s on Main Street and Rock Springs Road.Coffee with A Cop was launched in Hawthorne, California in 2011. Members of the Hawthorne Police Department were looking for ways to interact more successfully with the citizens they served each day.fCommunity policing has long been considered a framework for establishing trust between the community and the police. However, because of shifting demographics, more commuters, and the introduction of different communication methods such as websites and social media, the character and composition of communities changed.The Hawthorne Police Department hit upon a simple plan to break through the barriers that have been built over the years – a cup of coffee.In less than three years, Coffee with a Cop events have been hosted in more than 2000 communities, in 49 states and is one of the most successful community oriented policing programs across the country.Official Website: Coffee with a Cop Previous articleDOJ and Orange County Officals Assist Apopka Task Force on ViolenceNext articleBankson and Becker sworn-in at Noon today at VFW Dale Fenwick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 You have entered an incorrect email address!

Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 8

first_imgFriday Apr 10, 2009 Super 14 Pick of the Week – Round 8 As we head into Week Nine of the 2009 Super 14 we take a look back at the best of last weekends action, with our weekly Super 14 Pick of the Week.At the top of the table things are looking tight, with the Sharks, the Chiefs, the Waratahs, and the Bulls all juggling for those semi final positions. Theres still plenty of time for a few other sides to sneak in, but at the moment, the top four are most impressive.Akona Ndungane picked up two against the Crusaders in Christchurch as the Bulls came close to an upset, while the Brumbies scored a few well made tries against the Cheetahs, including a Mark Gerard dribbling effort and a nice individual Christian Lealiifano try from some excellent stepping.The team that week in and week out seems to produce some spectacular tries, the Chiefs, produced yet another great try that swept the width of the field before Jackson Willison finished nicely. Injury prone Andre Pretorious featured in that match for the Lions, as he stepped a few defenders before offloading for Jano Vermaak.Probably the performance of the weekend though was in the Waratahs and Stormers match, as Lachie Turner scored two cracking tries, showing what an exciting prospect he is.The first was self made with a neat chip ahead then great control to score. The second came from a classy bit of play from another youngster, Kurtley Beale, who broke the line then put the kick in for the rapid Turner to chase. Turner calmly did the rest, then got the hooker bear hug as reward.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Woodford explained the site’s creation: “I have a long history with charity events and auctions,” she said, “and along with my business partner Emma Leschallas became increasingly frustrated at the thousands of charity auction lots being left unclaimed each year. BuyOnceGiveTwice is a simple idea that will help charities effortlessly increase their fundraising revenue.”Leschallas added: “We handle everything from listing and marketing the items to taking payment and despatching the items, so the charity needs hardly lift a finger”.The site is already working with Breast Cancer Campaign, Changing Faces, the Motor Neurone Disease Association, Orchid, JDRF, Ovarian Cancer Action and Starlight.www.buyoncegivetwice.co.uk Website to recycle unclaimed auction lots for charity  61 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: BuyOnceGiveTwice Digital Eventscenter_img In other cases, where the purchase has returned the lot to the charity to re-sell, the charity can contact BuyOnceGiveTwice directly and it will receive 90% of the resale value.

BuyOnceGiveTwice aims to recycle these prizes to raise funds for charity again at no cost to the charity.Any purchaser of a charity auction item who has not redeemed their prize can now contact the site and re-auction the lot for the charity. The original charity will receive 60% of the resale value and, once re-sold, the new purchaser can nominate their favourite charity to receive the other 30%.

National assembly passes amendment to computer crimes law

first_img Costa RicaAmericas News 30 countries sign up to “information and democracy” partnership started by RSF November 11, 2020 Find out more News The national assembly approved an amendment to the computer crimes law on second reading yesterday by a big majority (42 to 2) without any changes to the version that was adopted on first reading after modification. The bill is now waiting to be signed into law by the president.Reporters Without Borders regrets that parliamentarians did not make further changes on second reading and, in particular, that they did not change a new provision under which revealing state secrets related to national security, defence of sovereignty and foreign relations will be punishable by one to six years in prison.The provision nonetheless allows for appeals.Costa Rica’s ranking in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, 18th out of 179 countries, is the best in Latin America.__________________11.04.13 – Amended by parliament, computer crimes bill needs more amendingReporters Without Borders welcomes the amendment that Costa Rica’s parliamentarians made to a controversial bill on computer technology crimes on first reading yesterday. Journalists had been very critical of the first draft of the proposed law.The amendment eliminated an article about the dissemination of “secret political information,” which carried a sentence of four to eight years in prison. Reporters Without Borders nonetheless urges members of the unicameral national assembly to go much further when the bill gets its second reading in the coming days, before promulgation.“We thinks that the new provision, making the revelation of ‘state secrets related to national security, defence of sovereignty and foreign relations’ punishable by one to six years in prison, still poses a problem,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Can you blame journalists or bloggers for divulging leaked information, even sensitive information, when it is in the public interest? Can you punish them for revealing details of diplomatic discussions when their content interests the general public?“We think that this new provision is unsatisfactory because it is imprecise. It, too, deserves to be amended on second reading in order to guarantee the principle of freedom of information.”________________28.11.12 – Supreme Court suspends controversial article of Cyber Crimes LawAs a result of a constitutional challenge filed by the journalist Randall Rivera against Costa Rica’s Information Crimes Law, the Supreme Court has temporarily suspended parts of the controversial legislation, in particular Article 288 providing for prison sentences of between four and eight years for anyone publishing “secret political information”.Reporters Without Borders remains vigilant, but welcomes the freezing of this “gag law”. “The Supreme Court has guaranteed that these provisions, which are detrimental to freedom of information, will not be applied to any citizen while the law’s constitutionality is examined,” the press freedom organization said. “Congress is already discussion major changes to the bill aimed at significantly easing its provisions, which we hope will be approved as soon as possible.”————————09.11.12 – Government pledges cybercrime law will not apply to journalistsThe outcry that has followed the enactment three days ago of Costa Rica’s highly controversial cybercrime law has forced the government into a hasty about-turn. It announced today that the legislation, which provides for up to 10 years’ imprisonment for publishing “secret political information”, would not apply to journalists.The law is not confined to national security but could also be applied to information “from national police bodies or security concerning defence matters or foreign relations” or which affects “the fight against drug trafficking or organized crime “.In a statement issued a day earlier, the government promised to amend article 288 of the new law which provides for imprisonment of between four and eight years for anyone “who procures or obtains in an improper way secret political information”.At the same time, the government pointed out that, under the constitution, it had a precise time limit for the enactment of the law after its approval by the Legislative Assembly. RSF_en Receive email alerts Costa RicaAmericas “Even with the support of this argument, the enactment of such a dangerous law that has had such a harsh reception from all journalists is staggering,” Reporters Without Borders said. “At the same time as a discussion in parliament, there should have been a wide-ranging public debate around the extremely vague notion of ‘secret political information’, much of which is of considerable public interest.“A piece of legislation that is so at odds with constitutional guarantees regarding freedom of expression and information should have provoked a presidential veto.” April 23, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 National assembly passes amendment to computer crimes law Follow the news on Costa Ricacenter_img to go further News The press freedom organization concluded: “The government should keep its word and ensure the law is amended so that its most repressive sections are scrapped. In our view, this should apply not only to qualified journalists or those employed by media organizations. It concerns every citizen, blogger or writer able to research and produce news and information. In other words, no-one should have to regard this law as a threat.” News Organisation Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder November 12, 2019 Find out more Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” Help by sharing this information September 26, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more
