Lucozade Sport’s #MadeToMove in Virgin Money London Marathon charity competition

first_imgKay Bartlett of Lucozade Sport said “When training for the Virgin Money London Marathon, it is a hard task for people to train and raise large amounts of money for their charities. We wanted to help marathon runners to raise money and get more people moving at the same time. It’s a great way to reward runners for all their hard work preparing for the marathon and encourages friends to show that they are helping them every step of the way.” Lucozade Sport has launched a new competition offering Virgin Money London Marathon runners the chance to win £1,000 for their chosen charity as part of Lucozade Sport’s Made to Move campaign, which aims to get 1 million people moving more by 2020.Lucozade Sport, the official hydration partner of the Virgin Money London Marathon, has said it will donate up to £45,000 to charity as part of the competition.With 40,000 people training for this year’s marathon, sports drink brand Lucozade Sport is asking runners to encourage as many friends as possible to move more by running and donating one mile each.

In addition, entrants will also be included into a prize draw to win a luxury weekend away for two people worth up to £2,000.To enter the competition, marathon runners must be registered for the 2017 Virgin Money London Marathon. They then need to challenge 10 friends on Instagram using #MadeToMove. Willing friends simply need to run one mile, take a sweaty selfie and post it on Instagram, tagging the marathon runner’s Instagram username and #MadeToMove. Relatedlast_img read more

Bar Clients’ Security Fund should not reimburse third-party losses

first_imgPanel also rejects random audits of lawyer trust accounts April 15, 2010 Regular News The Bar’s Clients’ Security Fund should reimburse clients who have no other recourse if their lawyer’s partner stole from them, according to the Clients’ Security Fund Procedures Committee. But the fund should not, at least for now, compensate third parties who have money stolen by attorneys, according to Committee Chair Greg Coleman.He reported to the Board of Governors at its March meeting that the committee also has rejected recommending random audits of lawyer trust accounts as a way of reducing claims on the fund.Coleman said the committee looked at incidents where it wasn’t a client’s own lawyer who stole money, but rather the lawyer’s partner or another member of the firm. Current rules provide that there must be a lawyer-client relationship before the fund will reimburse a client for such losses.“We think when anybody in the firm steals your money, if you can’t get it through other vehicles, then the Clients’ Security Fund should be the fund of last resort,” he said.He said a rule amendment reflecting the recommendation will be presented to the board at its May 28 meeting.In a similar vein, the committee looked at thefts by lawyers from third parties. Those typically occur, Coleman said, when lawyers accept money from those parties to be held in trust for clients, such as during real estate purchases.Reimbursing those victims would have a substantial financial impact, Coleman said, with at least $3.4 million in claims during the 2007-08 fiscal year and $1.2 million during the next year.The committee decided to see how other recent changes in the CSF payout policies work out before taking action on that issue.The committee continues to study ways to prevent lawyer defalcations and therefore claims on the fund, but for the moment that won’t include random audits of trust funds — something done in a handful of other states.“The committee’s feeling is that we need to look at some other, less invasive or difficult option before we make that recommendation,” Coleman said. “Although there are eight or nine states that have random audits, in the most recent states that have enacted it, there has been a huge backlash from the practicing lawyers.”Instead, the committee is looking at educating lawyers about their trust funds and software that can help law firms and lawyers quickly recognize when trust funds are being stolen, he said.

Boutwell: In Anticipation Of 75th Anniversary…

first_imgOften called the “Keeper of the Nuclear Conscience”, Rotblat was much criticized for “deserting” the atomic bomb project, yet he did so for fundamental reasons of personal conscience and fears that development of the “Gadget” would lead to a post-war nuclear arms race. In anticipation of next year’s 75th anniversary of the Trinity test and the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, every effort should be made, including by the Los Alamos Historical Society and our national labs, to investigate and publicize new verification and confidence-building measures, including the use of Artificial Intelligence as written about recently by LANL Director Thom Mason, that can aid in the effort to greatly reduce and eliminate the reliance on nuclear weapons as instruments of policy and war. By JEFFREY BOUTWELL, Ph.D.Los Alamos I had the privilege to give a talk on Nov. 12 to the Los Alamos Historical Society focusing on the Polish physicist Josef Rotblat and his decision to leave Los Alamos and end his participation in the Manhattan Project in December of 1944 when it became clear that Nazi Germany was nowhere close to acquiring atomic weapons. Seventy five years on, we remain dangerously mired in a world with 14,000 nuclear weapons and a growing number of nuclear weapons states.last_img read more

first_imgThese brave service members from the US and South Korea stand guard as freedom’s first line of defense.— Vice President Pence (@VP) April 17, 2017The visit comes just a day after North Korea’s failed missile launch, and one month since Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to the DMZ, where he was notably photographed by a North Korean soldier standing on the other side of an observation post.Briefly addressing reporters in Camp Bonifas, Pence praised the “unshakeable bond” between the U.S. and Korean people.“My father served in the Korean War with the U.S. Army, and on the way here, we actually saw some of the terrain my father fought alongside Korean forces to help earn your freedom,” Pence said. “It’s a great honor to be with all of our forces.”Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.

Parish wins by six at Khao Kheow

first_imgSo in the A Flight, 0 to 18, the winner was Brian Parish with 39 points ahead of a count back on 33 points that saw Landis Brooks in second, Mark West in third and Mashi just missing out.Tuesday winners Brian Parish & Carole Kubicki with one of Bert’s staff.In the B Flight the winner was Carole Kubicki with 37 points ahead of a count back on 36 points that saw Derek Brook in second and Andre Van Dyk in third.  Just think, if it had been next week I would have won.  Yes, age has caught up and I have slipped into the group of players with character, grey hair and paunches.  Woe is me.Rubbish over, let’s get to the really interesting things.  It was really hot out there, the course was in good condition and we had a good round playing the B & C Nines.  That’s about all for the course, except they are sanding the A Nine, as we have played it before.  Oh by the way, it is a really good course here with a friendly staff.I won’t go on about the traffic on the way back , that is normal, but I must say on the way back, living on Beach Road, I was reminded of the ongoing ‘Saga of Beach Road’ and the number of times I have seen major disruption there.  Dig it up, fix it, wait a while and dig it up again.  Then block up the town for a sing song or party or such for days.  Over the years it has proved better comedy than a TV programme.Friday winners Bill McGarvie & Mick Coghlan.Now they are building a third lane I am advised, when all they really need to do is stop anyone parking on the road and they have three lanes.  Change direction from Pattaya Klang to Pattaya Nua and all the busses can stop and let the passengers off, so no sheep on the road and a shepherd not deeded.Well I feel better now and next week normal service will be resumed.Near Pins:  Brian Parish (2), Landis Brooks, Mark WestFriday, April 5,The Emerald – StablefordAnother regular on the schedule, we usually nip down here once in a month.  No problems here except when we finish it is usually very difficult to get all the players back to Bert’s in time for the results.  Wonder where they get to?  Indeed, we have our groups who usually join us for the day out.On this day we had a good turnout and were soon at the course.  We could have got away a bit sooner than we did as the starter tried to get us away, however we did mislay one of the buses, still we did get away a bit early and made good speed.The course was in good condition, but we had the normal hot weather albeit with a nice wind to cool us down.Round over it was back to Bert’s for the results.  In the A Flight, 0 to 18, the winner was Bill McGarvie with 38 points ahead of a count back on 37 points that saw Landis Brooks in second and Mark West in third.In the B Flight the winner was Mick Coghlan with 36 points on count back over Andre Van Dyk in second.  In third was Graham Buckingham with 35 points.  T.T.F.N.Near Pins:  Brian Gabe (2), Max Scott, Andre Van Dyk. PSC golf from Tropical Bert’sTuesday, March 2, Khao Kheow – StablefordIt is always a bit boring reading these write-ups when all you really want is to know who won, or the last page, so for a change we will give the results first and then go into all the boring stuff later on.  After all, the winners only read it when they win, so for a change it will be nice to get it over with, especially as Carole Kubicki is on her way home soon and we will all then be able to win. last_img read more
