New charitable wedding list service raises funds from guests

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Alternative Wedding List is an online wedding list service, where instead of toasters and kettles, couples sign-up to a list that contains gifts of donations to various charities.This new service allows those engaged couples that already have everything in their homes they could possibly want to use their big day for the benefit of others.The service works the same as any other online wedding list. First, couples register online and send their guests details of where their list is held. Then guests logon to the couple’s list, select a gift from the those available, pay via a secure payment link and receive a receipt for their purchase. Couples can logon to their list at any time to view purchases and messages from guests, and then receive a final certificate confirming how much their guests donated to each charity.

Each gift purchased represents a donation to the charity whose gift a guest has selected. For example, £27 pays for a gift to Sight Savers International to allow them to pay for a cataract operation for a child in Bangladesh, while £50 would buy a gift to Save the Children to allow them to buy a set of winter clothes for a child in Serbia.Andy Hickey, founder of The Alternative Wedding List, said: “we think there’s a gap in the market for couples who don’t need more toasters and who would like to feel good about the gifts that their guests buy. We claim back Gift Aid from the Inland Revenue on behalf of the charities. We use some of this to run the service and forward the rest on to the charities along with 100% of the original donation.”Launched at last week’s Charityfair in London, The Alternative Wedding List says that charities already signed-up to the service include Help the Aged, Marie Curie Cancer Care, Save the Children and Sight Savers International.The Alternative Wedding List Limited has been set-up as a non-profit making company.  17 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThislast_img read more

7 dead as truck plows into motorcycles in New Hampshire

first_imgiStock(RANDOLPH, N.H.) — A pickup truck plowed into a group of motorcycles, killing seven people and injuring three more, in a horrific accident in northern New Hampshire on Friday.The accident took place in Randolph, New Hampshire, a few miles from Mount Washington, at about 6:30 p.m. when a Ford 2500 slammed into multiple motorcycles on Route 2, according to state police.It is unclear how many of the deaths were motorcycle riders as opposed to those in the truck.Two people injured in the accident were taken to Androscoggin Valley Hospital, while another was airlifted to Maine Medical Center in Portland.“It’s tragic. It’s tragic for those involved, tragic for the families, so we’re doing our job, we’re doing our work and our thoughts are with the people who were adversely affected by this,” New Hampshire State Police Capt. Chris Vetter said.Route 2 remained closed to all traffic in the area four hours after the crash, and state police said it would remain closed through the night.“The identities of the deceased are still being confirmed and that information will not be released until next of kin have been notified,” state police said in a press release.Photos from the scene of the accident showed a handful of smashed motorcycles strewn across the road and the pickup truck on fire.“I held his hand, and I tried to get him to — I’m like, ‘Squeeze my hand. Stay with me. You’re a strong guy. You’ve got this.’ Toward the end, when the ambulance got there, I could feel him losing strength,” eyewitness Travis Hood told Manchester, New Hampshire, ABC affiliate WMUR-TV.There had been 27 previous deaths on New Hampshire roads in 2019, according to state police.This is the second fatal accident in Randolph this year after someone died in a crash on Feb. 4.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

The accuracy of climate variability and trends across Arctic Fennoscandia in four reanalyses

first_imgArctic Fennoscandia has undergone significant climate change over recent decades. Reanalysis data sets allow us to understand the atmospheric processes driving such changes. Here we evaluate four reanalyses against observations of near‐surface air temperature (SAT) and precipitation (PPN) from 35 meteorological stations across the region for the 35‐year period from 1979 to 2013. The reanalyses compared are the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR), the European Centre for Medium‐Range Weather Forecast (ECMWF) Interim reanalysis (ERA‐Interim), the Japanese Meteorological Agency (JMA) 55‐year reanalysis (JRA‐55) and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Modern‐Era Retrospective Analysis for Research and Applications (MERRA). All four reanalyses have an overall small cool bias across Arctic Fennoscandia, with MERRA typically ~1 °C cooler than the others. They generally reproduce the broad spatial patterns of mean SAT across the region, although less well in areas of complex orography. Observations reveal a statistically significant warming across Arctic Fennoscandia, with the majority of trends significant at p < .01. Three reanalyses show similar regional warming but of smaller magnitude while CFSR is anomalous, even having a slight cooling in some areas. In general, the other reanalyses are sufficiently accurate to reproduce the varying significance of observed seasonal trends. There are much greater differences between the reanalyses when comparing PPN to observations. MERRA‐Land, which merges a gauge‐based data set, is clearly the best: CFSR is the least successful, with a significant wet bias. The smoothed reanalysis orography means that the high PPN associated with the western side of the Scandinavian Mountains extends too far inland. Spatial patterns of PPN trends across the region differ markedly between the reanalyses, which have varying success at matching observations and generally fail to replicate sites with significant observed trends. Therefore, using reanalyses to analyse PPN changes in Arctic Fennoscandia should be undertaken with caution.last_img read more

Severe Weather Conference Draws a Large Crowd

first_imgIt was your chance to ask the experts Thursday evening as a local Meteorologists and Emergency Managers gathered at the Ocean City Music pier for the 2016 Cape-Atlantic Severe Weather Conference. Unlike most conferences, the audience was able ask questions and express their issues with forecasters and emergency management. It is no coincidence this conference was held during the peak of hurricane season. This is an important time of year to reinforce the importance of being prepared for a storm.The panel of guests included meteorologists Kathy Orr(FOX29), Jim Eberwine(NWS), Joe Miketta(NWS), forecaster Jonathan Carr(WeatherNJ), and Emergency Managers Vince Jones(Atlantic County), Martin Pagliughi(Cape May County), Frank Donato(Ocean City), and Vince Maione(AC Electric).Ocean City Emergency Management coordinator, Frank Donato, opened up the conference with a list of the most recent storms since 2008 that affected Ocean City. Basically, raising the issue that more intense storms have been occurring over the last several years compared to the previous 20 to 30 years. While questions were asked whether this was a result of climate change, the panel of meteorologists did not want to speculate. However, they did admit changes have occurred recently that have caused storms to become more intense. As far a sea level rise occurring due to climate change, Meteorologist, Jim Eberwine stated that while the sea level was slowly rising due to warming, our land is slowly sinking as well. As a result, the frequency of coastal flooding has increased.It came to no surprise that the majority of questions were about the recent inaccurate forecast of Hermine. Due to the storm hitting on the last weekend of the summer season, it forced visitors to leave early or not come to the shore at all. As a result, it hurt the local economy. But as emergency management officials stated last night, safety was most important. Not only was it difficult forecast but with the storm hitting on a holiday weekend, emergency management officials had to deal with more people and cars on the island.What seemed to surprise the audience was the issue with the lack of buoys off the East Coast which becomes problematic to meteorologists when forecasting marine weather. In fact, there is only one buoy in the local forecast area. Joe Miketta of the National Weather Service stated the reason for the lack of buoys is that it would be too costly to install and maintain them over time.As a resident on a barrier island, nothing is more important during a storm then following the wind direction, moon phase and the tide. This will help you know how bad flooding can be. There was a lot of interest from the audience on where you can find this information. On this site, it also lists the highest tides on record.  To monitor the tide levels on the bayside of Ocean City here.However, the gauge in Ocean City does not show forecast levels. The only two local gauges that show forecast tide levels are Atlantic City (Steel Pier) and Cape May. Located here.The panel did express their concern for complacency the next time a storm threatens the New Jersey coast. Similar to what happened after Irene. Evacuations and storm preparations were all for nothing as Irene skirted the coast in 2011 and damage was minimal. The following year, Sandy approached, less people evacuated and damage was extensive. In the end, Meteorologists and Emergency Management officials will continue to face challenges forecasting and informing the public. Forecasting will continue to improve and we will learn from the past. But it will never be perfect, weather is an inexact science.last_img read more

Agreement on bakery show

first_imgBakery Exhibitors Ltd (BEL) the board of Food & Bake exhibition, has decided to align itself with William Reed’s Baking Industry Exhibition. The result will be the first-ever joint event for the baking industry, which will take place at the NEC from 6-9 April, 2008.David Marsh, chairman of BEL said: “The final agreement forged between BEL and William Reed Exhibitions maintains the original goals of BEL’s charter, together with significant benefits for members in the near and long term future. This decision secures a single industry exhibition and conference event, able to provide a unifying platform for bakers, suppliers and their associations.”Charles Reed, managing director of Wm Reed said: “We are delighted with this decision; it will be good for the whole industry. We will work hard to incorporate the Food & Bake brand into the Baking Industry Exhibition. The industry needs a single, successful event and Wm Reed is best placed with its mix of titles including British Baker, Bake & Take, The Grocer, Food Manufacture, and Forecourt Trader to promote the show widely. Our PR will also extend into other media.”The Baking Industry Exhibition will benefit from events put on for the craft baker and other bakery sectors and, with our his-tory of organising successful shows alongside, which attract over 70,000 visitors and buyers under one roof, we are confident that the show will go from strength to strength.”Exhibitors already signed up for the show include equipment suppliers Rondo Doge, Brook Foods, Orbiter and Reiser as well as Bakery Conservation Systems, Fermex, British Bakels, Muntons and Rank Hovis.Richard Tearle, general manager, Rondo commented: “We didn’t exhibit at the last Food & Bake show, and think that, by the time we get to April 2008, it will be the right time for Rondo to exhibit. The plans for a live bakery at the show were very attractive. We will be placing equipment there. Birmingham is the only place to have a national show. Any bakery show in London over recent history has been ineffective, as people don’t want to travel there.”And Stephen Matthews, general manager of seasonings company Gordon Rhodes said: “We will be targeting larger bakers, those with 30 or more shops, who manufacturer their own sausage rolls and pies. We do blends of seasonings for meat and vegetarian products.”Acrivarn sales director Lindsay Owen added: “Two or three other shows will take place at the NEC at the same time, which will draw customers in. We have customers who will be visiting the Foodex Meatex show, on at the same time. It is good to see exhibitors like Rondo coming back, who weren’t there last year.”And Richard Lyon, UK manager, Bakery Conservation Systems explained: “In the past we have distributed through agencies, we are now going to be Koma UK, and we need to make sure that custo-mers realise that. We will launch a couple of exciting developments on touchscreen control panels at the show. Exhibiting at the show will give us access to the whole food industry.”last_img read more
