Record 386,050 apply to run in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon

first_img Did you secure a place in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon? The results of the ballot have been announced today.Securing a place in the event, which is the world’s largest single day fundraising event, was even harder this year. A record 386,050 people applied for a place, up nearly 29% on the 253,930 who applied for the 2017 event.So charities will soon start to have a sense of how many runners they will have fundraising for them, for those who secured a place via the ballot. Charities with Golden Bonds of course have an additional method of attracting runners.Just over 58% of the UK applications for 2018 were from people who have never run a marathon and more than 45% of the total UK applicants were women (also a new record).When will runners hear?Everyone who has won a place in the ballot will receive a confirmation letter and magazine through the post. Unsuccessful applicants will receive either a magazine or will be emailed an e-zine.Applicants who have not received their ballot result are asked to wait until Monday 9 October before contacting the London Marathon helpdesk.Record-breaking fundraising eventRunners in the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon raised more than £61.5 million for charity setting a new record for an annual single day charity fundraising event for the eleventh successive year. That brought the total raised for charity by the world’s greatest marathon to more than £890 million since the event was founded in 1981.Hugh Brasher, Event Director of the Virgin Money London Marathon, reminded would-be runners that there were still chances for them to run, if they fundraised for a charity.He said: “The Virgin Money London Marathon is the most popular marathon on the planet with a world record number of people applying in the ballot for 2018. Unfortunately that means a huge number of people will be disappointed after the ballot.“But I’d remind everyone that there is still a chance to gain a place in the 2018 race by fundraising for a charity. Charities with places available are listed on our website.”The 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon takes place on Sunday 22 April 2018.  220 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22  219 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis22 Record 386,050 apply to run in the 2018 Virgin Money London Marathon About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Mexico Begins Process to Ratify USMCA

first_img Facebook Twitter Mexico Begins Process to Ratify USMCA Mexico plans for quick ratification of the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement, setting the process in motion following action by Canada earlier this week. That leaves the U.S. behind both in the process as the Trump administration has yet to formally introduce the agreement to Congress. However, the administration was reported to be sending a draft version to Congress Thursday. Vice President Mike Pence visited Canada Thursday to discuss moving the deal forward as Canada formally introduced the agreement to lawmakers earlier this week. Mexico’s President reported the documents were sent to Mexico’s Senate Thursday, and officials from Mexico were hopeful the U.S. would ratify the deal by July, according to the Associated Press.Mexico’s Senate is in recess, but officials say they will seek a special session to consider the agreement. With the move by the Trump administration Thursday, the U.S. can send the formal agreement to Congress in 30 days. The House must vote on the agreement first, with no amendments, per Trade Promotion Authority. Democrats in the House have questioned provision in the agreement regarding labor and enforcement.

Division bench of Justice SS Shinde and Justice SP Tavade was hearing Rao’s petition challenging Special court’s order refusing bail to him on medical grounds. Another petition filed on Rao’s behalf of Rao sought Court also enquired from NIA and the State whether Rao’s family could see him from a reasonable distance. Appearing on behalf of Rao, Advocates R Sathyanarayanan and Advocate Sudep Pasbola submitted that Rao’s condition was extremely critical as he is suffering from various ailments apart from being Covid-19 positive. Thus, Rao’s bail was sought so that he can spend time with his family. More importantly, it was submitted that Rao hit his head on the hospital bed and sustained severe injuries at JJ Hospital. Adv Pasbola said- “His condition is very serious. He hit his head against the hospital bed while he was at the JJ hospital and sustained severe injuries. Besides Covid-19, he suffers from several ailments, he is hallucinating and is delirious. Let him be in the presence of his family members.” However, the bench asked if Rao’s health is declining then taking him out of the hospital would prove to be counterproductive. Also, how can he meet his family if he has Covid-19, Justice Shinde said. Rao’s counsel stated that his family may be allowed to see him from a reasonable distance. To this, Public Prosecutor Deepak Thakare said that video conferencing facilities can be arranged for Rao’s family instead. Whereas, Additional Solicitor General Anil Singh, who appeared for the NIA, argued that Rao had been admitted to one of the best multi-speciality hospitals in the city and that he was being taken care of in accordance with Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) guidelines. Thus, the bench finally asked the State and NIA to file their replies regarding Rao’s health condition and clarify whether his family members could see him from a reasonable distance by July 22. Meanwhile, Rao’s co-accused, Vernon Gonsalves and Anand Teltumbde, who were also lodged at Taloja jail, filed a writ petition seeking directions to the State to test them for Covid-19 as they came in close contact with Rao. This matter came up for hearing before the same bench. Court directed the State and NIA to conduct the Covid-19 swab test and inform them regarding the same by July 23. Moreover, tribal rights activist and unionist Sudha Bharadwaj’s plea for bail on medical grounds was also heard today by the same bench. The matter was adjourned after the bench concluded that the report filed by the Superintendent, Byculla women’s prison was “illegible”. This case will be heard on July 23 as well. On the other hand, Rao’s immediate family, his wife P Hemlatha and three daughters, in a press release stated that the news about his health condition, particularly the head injury he suffered by the time he was brought to Nanavati Hospital, was not disclosed to the family members, who got to know about it through newspapers. “Not sharing health updates of a person in judicial custody with his family is illegal, unconstitutional and inhuman. Today’s news that he suffered a head injury whether in JJ Hospital or St George, but discovered on arrival at Nanavati, made us highly perturbed and worried about his safety and well-being. It is the family’s right to get official transparent updates on his health status, line of treatment and probable risks, but the concerned prison, police and health administrations in a gross dereliction of their duties have not come out to family with the much needed information. This is not only a gross violation of the family’s right to information, but also a grave misconduct on the part of the state government institutions.” Finally, demands have been made to the State government to allow one family member as Rao’s attendant and directions have been sought for the hospital administration to provide regular updates, at least once a day to Rao’s family. Also, access to all of Rao’s medical records has been sought. Next Storylast_img read more

Nowhere to hide in new race laws

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. Changes in racial equality regulations could transform public sector HR, buttheir true impact hangs on how the Government enforces them, writes JohnRobinsonNew legal duties on public bodies to promote race equality are the mostimportant changes to race discrimination laws since the Race Relations Act waspassed in 1976. They have the potential to transform personnel procedures inthe public sector.But their true significance will only become clear when the Government sayshow it intends to enforce them.Unless a rigorous enforcement regime is put in place and employers feardamage to their reputation as well as their coffers, the changes will havelittle impact.A spokeswoman for the Home Office said details of how the laws will bepoliced are under discussion, but she admitted an option being considered is togive greater powers to the Commission for Racial Equality.The CRE, in its submission to the Government on the legislation, has askedfor new authority to force employers to monitor the make up of their workforce.EnforcementIf it convinces the Government, the CRE’s role will be similar to that ofthe Health and Safety Executive, enabling it to ask the courts to issueenforcement notices against organisations which are failing in their duty topromote race equality.If the employer fails to mend its ways, it would be prosecuted.A CRE spokesman said public bodies should be required to report annually tothe Audit Office on their performance in promoting equality. The CRE wouldenter the fray if an institution had not carried out its duty.”If you look across the public sector, half of the organisations, maybemore, are not doing any sort of monitoring at all,” the CRE spokesmansaid. “If this Bill contains workable enforcement powers, then it will representan enormous change throughout these organisations. Only the very best practiceexamples will get through that test.”Public-sector bodies appear confident they can meet this test. Reaction tothe Government’s announcement has been almost unwaveringly positive, with mostHR directors stressing that their organisation is already working to improveequality policies.”We are pursuing targets in common with all of the criminal justiceagencies,” said Gareth Hadley, head of HR for HM Prison Service. “We havelaunched a project called Respond which addresses the need of the organisationto bring in a larger number of ethnic minority employees and create a workingenvironment in which all staff feel safe and secure.”The Prison Service, along with the police, immigration service, socialsecurity and Civil Service, has also been brought under the law coveringindirect race discrimination. This regulation, which outlaws policies whichappear fair but result in bias, has covered most public and all private sectororganisations since the original 1976 Act.Reassessing policiesRita Sammons, president of local authority personnel body Socpo, saidcouncils had set an example on equality issues since the 1980s. But she addedthat the legislation would make local authorities reassess their policies andwould force those which had neglected race issues to take action.”I think the legislation, coupled with Best Value performanceindicators, which look at how the workforce is representative of the localpopulation, will require all local authorities to put comprehensive monitoringin place and meet stringent targets,” she said. “Even though we have been working hard over a number of years, there isstill much to be done.”The view that the legislation would, if nothing else, cause the publicsector to increase its focus on equality issues was echoed by Karen Bell,president of NHS HR association AHHRM. She added the new laws could help cutnursing shortages by encouraging more people from ethnic minorities to join thehealth service.It is evident that the vast majority of the public sector is happy to takethe lead in eradicating race discrimination from the workplace. What remains tobe seen is how those who lag behind will be dealt with. Nowhere to hide in new race lawsOn 8 Feb 2000 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
