Apopka vs. Matthew: Bruised, battered but not beaten

Mama Mia October 7, 2016 at 7:37 pmcenter_img Very glad it moved on finally. I really think the hurricanes from 2004 were worse, but this one, the way they talked about what a category 4 could do, had me thinking uh oh, this is it, and we are doomed. Now if this thing doesn’t do a loop, and come back! October 7, 2016 at 7:42 pm October 7, 2016 at 7:44 pm The Anatomy of Fear We avoided the downtown area of 441 when we realized the traffic lights were out. The 9/11 metal piece was gone I noticed. 4 COMMENTS The storm had already moved on and away, and I was sitting in our truck with my dog, and I thought the wind was going to blow the truck over, just sitting in a parking lot, that strong after the storm! Mama Mia LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply City of Apopka, first responders and residents perform wellHurricane Matthew is on the slow move north in the Atlantic Ocean on its way to Northern Florida and Georgia. His tour of Central Florida was brief, but significant. Over 65,000 residents in Orange County were without power. 20 traffic lights went out. 1,250 people evacuated to Orange County shelters. Disney World, the Orlando International Airport along with most every business in the county closed.And like most of Central Florida, Apopka is bruised, battered but not beaten.We bought all of the gas, bread, water and plywood in town. The local hotels were full. We dealt with 7-inches of rain, 60-mph wind gusts, downed trees and a 10pm Thursday to 2pm Friday curfew. But we survived.Captain Randall Fernandez of the Apopka Police Department gave the overall assessment of Apopka’s battle with Matthew.“Over all, there was very little damage in the city, and very few law enforcement issues. No officers were hurt during the event.  We still have a lot of power outages and closed businesses, but that is quickly being resolved.” Earlier in the day, Mayor Joe Kilsheimer issued this statement on Facebook that still applies several hours later:“The worst of Hurricane Matthew seems to have passed. HOWEVER: It will be a minimum of a day or two before life fully returns to normal. There are multiple power outages across Apopka, affecting an estimated 7,000 Apopka-area residents. We have multiple intersections where the traffic signals have no power. Windy conditions need to subside before the power company can get out and restore power. Several downed trees need to have live power lines neutralized before the trees can be removed. I know everyone is anxious to get back to their normal lives. Please give public safety and power company personnel the time and space they need to safely restore public services.”Apopka Police Chief Michael McKinley also responded to the storm and to the time and effort his officers and staff put in during the storm.“The City of Apooka escaped this enormous storm relatively unscathed. The dedicated men and women of the Apopka Police Department spent the last 24-plus hours working hard to ensure our community was safe. I am proud of their dedication and hard work. Just as they do every day, they left their families to protect us under some very difficult conditions and they did a great job.”And according to McKinley, their extended staff and hours continues.“We went to 12 hour shifts for patrol and called squads in on their day off to ensure we had sufficient coverage. The communications Center had everyone on duty to ensure we could cover any significant increase in calls for service. We also dispatch for Maitland and Eatonville. We continue to have additional staff on duty until tomorrow morning when I believe things should begin to get back to normal.” As the saying goes, Apopka prepared for the worst, and hoped and prayed for the best. What we experienced was probably closer to the latter, but at a minimum it was a good test for future weather events. The city’s emergency operation center performed well. Police, Fire and Rescue were prepared to respond, and did. The residents as a whole took Hurricane Matthew seriously and prepared accordingly. This was a sort of like military maneuvers with live ammunition. On every level Apopka passed this test, and that’s a good thing because its October 7th, and hurricane season doesn’t end until November 30th.

first_imgFundraising salaries see small increase for third consecutive year Fundraising salaries rose 1% for the third year running last year, according to the Kage Partnership’s Fundraising Salary Survey 2017.The survey reports increases in 8 out of 14 categories, with only one category showing no change, and the largest salary increases seen in the events manager, and community manager categories, which rose 7% and 5% respectively.Average increases were once again higher in the manager category, while director/head of fundraising level showed a 3% increase.As in the last few years, more jobs were available, with Kage Partnership reporting a 23% increase in the number of roles it handled last year. 2016 saw more candidates available at manager level but filling jobs across the board at officer level proved difficult.

A willingness in the sector to appoint candidates with commercial sector experience was seen, as was more covering of work internally, and use of interim solutions to solve staffing requirements.Salaries:JuniorFundraising assistant: £21-24k (£22.5k average)Officer/ Executive/Senior ExecutiveCorporate fundraiser: £26.5-34k (£30k average)Trust fundraiser: £23.5-34.5k (£29.5k average)Major donor fundraiser: £25.5k-34k (£30k average)Events fundraiser: £23.5k-30.5k) £27k average)Community/Regional fundraiser: £24.5k-31.5k (£28k average)Direct marketing executive: £26.5k-35k (£29k average)Manager Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Melanie May | 31 January 2017 | News  74 total views,  4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis10 Tagged with: Charity Jobs Finance recruitment  73 total views,  3 views today Corporate Fundraising Manager: £30-54.5k (£39k average)Trust Fundraising Manager: £31-51k (£38k average)Major Donor Fundraising Manager: £30-59k (£39k average)Events Fundraising Manager £32-57.5k (£39k average)Community/Regional Fundraising Manager £30-57.5k (£40.5k average)Direct Marketing Manager £30-48k (£39k average)SeniorDirector/head of fundraising: £47.5-65k (£56.5k average)The figures are compiled from data on 370 fundraising vacancies, with 148 charities registered in the last 12 months (January-December 2016).

RSF urges US State Department to rescind restrictions on Chinese journalists

first_img News News WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists The United States and China are ranked 48th and 177th respectively out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index.  Organisation Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the State Department to immediately rescind a personnel cap placed on five Chinese state media outlets operating in the United States, which would reduce the number of journalists working at those outlets in the United States by more than a third. The US and Chinese governments must put an end to the weaponization of media as a tool to retaliate against the other nation.

Retaliating against journalists—whether they be Chinese or American—is not the way America’s leading diplomat should be modeling support for press freedom globally. The State Department should  swiftly lift this arbitrary cap and both the US and Chinese governments should allow journalists to operate freely, especially amid a global health crisis.”  Help by sharing this information US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced on March 2 the Trump administration’s decision to reduce the number of Chinese citizens employed by Chinese news outlets in the United States from 160 to no more than 100 Chinese staff. Effective March 13, the restrictions apply to five state media outlets including the Xinhua News Agency, China Global Television Network, China Radio International, China Daily Distribution Corporation and Hai Tian Development USA. This follows China’s recent revocation of press credentials for three Wall Street Journal reporters based in Beijing, which was in response to a February 18 State Department decision to require several Chinese news outlets to register as foreign missions.    Facebook’s Oversight Board is just a stopgap, regulation urgently needed, RSF says to go further News March 3, 2020 RSF urges US State Department to rescind restrictions on Chinese journalists United StatesAmericas Media independence Brendan Smialowski/AFP In a statement announcing this latest action, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo wrote that the State Department “urge[s] the Chinese government to immediately uphold its international commitments to respect freedom of expression, including for members of the press.” RSF made a similar request of Secretary Pompeo a month prior, when he retaliated against NPR by removing a State Department reporter from the press pool days after a different NPR reporter, Mary Louise Kelly, asked him questions about Ukraine.
