Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. The first year of the partnership between Tesco and Diabetes UK has resulted in £10 million being raised for the charity. The final total will be higher because the partnership will continue this year, with Tesco staff, suppliers and customers raising further funds.Last Tesco announced it had raised £11.5 million in one year for Cancer Research UK.The funds raised so far have been invested in Diabetes UK’s biggest ever research programme, into developing a vaccine for Type 1 diabetes; extending the hours of Diabates UK Careline; the largest advertising campaign to encourage people to check their risk of Type 2 diabetes; and distributing 1 million information leaflets and booklets about Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes in Tesco stores,The remarkable total was raised in various ways, including staff putting on fundraising events in stores, distribution centres and offices around the UK; suppliers running promotions; and a three-day charity collection in which more than 7,500 people volunteered and which raised over £380,000.Rosemary Conley came along to the Diabetes UK roadshow on Wednesday, 12th June.

Our colleagues have worked hard over the last year to raise over £19,000. They have ‘Cycled to Lapland’, baked cakes, held table sales, dressed up and dressed down and I personally have cycled from Glasgow to Edinburgh to help raise more money”.Barbara Young, Chief Executive of Diabetes UK, said:“Throughout the last year, I have been consistently amazed and humbled by the way Tesco colleagues, customers and suppliers have raised so much money for what is a hugely important cause.“As well as wanting to take the chance to thank them all, I also want to welcome their decision to extend the partnership. This is a really exciting development that will mean that, working together, we can fund even more research and give more people the information and support they need to have the best possible chance of a long and healthy life.” 50 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: charity of the year corporate Tesco Howard Lake | 3 March 2014 | News Advertisement Tesco partnership yields £10m for Diabetes UK in first year

Spatial distribution of predator/prey interactions in the Scotia Sea: implications for measuring predator/fisheries overlap
The measurement of spatial overlap between predators and fisheries exploiting a common prey source is dependent upon the measurement scale used; inappropriate scales may produce misleading results. Previous assessments of the level of overlap between predators and fisheries for Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) in the region of the South Shetland Islands used different measurement scales and arrived at contradictory conclusions. At-sea data from observations of krill predators during the CCAMLR 2000 Survey were used to identify the areas of potential overlap with fisheries in the Scotia Sea and to determine the scale at which such overlap should be measured. The relationship between autocorrelation and sampling distance was used to identify the characteristic scales of the distribution of predators, krill and krill fisheries, and an effort-corrected index of relative abundance as a function of distance from land was used to identify the characteristics of areas of high potential for overlap. Despite distinct differences in foraging ecology, a group of krill-dependent species including chinstrap penguin (Pygoscelis antarctica), (Antarctic) fur seal (Arctocephalus sp. (gazella)) and white-chinned petrel (Procellaria aequinoctialis) showed similar patterns of distribution; the relative abundances were highest at 60-120 km from land and decreased sharply at distances greater than 150 km from land. There were more inter-specific differences in the characteristic scales, which were of the order of 50-100 km. Antarctic krill had a characteristic scale of approximately 200 km and the relationship with distance from land showed a log-linear decline. Krill fisheries operate at a scale of 150 km and occur almost entirely within 100 km of land. The requirement of land for breeding and the biological and oceanographic conditions that produce the high concentrations of krill associated with those land areas produce a system in which the demand for Antarctic krill from fisheries and predators is essentially co-extensive. The areas of greatest potential overlap are within 150-200 km of land and to accommodate the scales of operation of the processes involved the extent of such overlap in these areas should be assessed at scales of 70-100 km.
Today, people across the northeast are locked down in their homes waiting out the wrath of Winter Storm Stella. From Virginia to Maine, schools and businesses are shuttered, highways are closed, and all flights into and out of the area are suspended. Blizzard advisory warnings have been issued in nine different states, and the unrelenting mix of heavy snow and frozen rain, rapidly accumulating ice, and gale force winds ensure that nobody here is going anywhere anytime soon.Stella may have messed with your plans today, but there’s no reason to let the storm get you down. Make a cup of hot cocoa, wrap yourself in a blanket, and turn your Stella Blues into Stella Bliss with this video of The Grateful Dead‘s entrancing rendition of “Stella Blue” from their October 17th, 1974 performance at the Winterland Arena in San Francisco, CA (courtesy of YouTube user friscobay01):The beautiful performance of the Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter tune came as part of the Grateful Dead’s acclaimed five-night run at the Winterland Arena which marked the beginning of a two-year hiatus from touring. As with all the band’s performances in 1974, the show featured Owsley “Bear” Stanley‘s storied “Wall of Sound” PA system, which delivered particularly visceral audio quality. The shows were immortalized in 1976 in the form of The Grateful Dead Movie, a fascinating relic of one of the band’s most storied eras.
