  • Amersham News Views and Information News Feed: Amersham Museum Re opens July 12

    Date:  Wednesday 12 July

    Time:  12noon

    Venue:  Amersham Museum, HP7 ODP


    After four years of planning and fundraising and a 10-month closure, Amersham Museum will re-open to visitors at noon on Wednesday 12th July.  The museum has undergone a substantial expansion into the neighbouring Victorian building.  A new, stunning glass reception space, has enabled the museum to reveal the medieval building, previously hidden to the High Street.  The museum’s wonderful garden has also been re-landscaped to enable wheelchair access and features new planting.

    The extension has created new exhibition space, activity space and dedicated stores for the museum’s collection.

    The collection has been completely redisplayed with more emphasis on the 20th century and much greater access to parts of it, including maps and oral histories. There are also more activities for children and discovery boxes full of objects, photos and documents.

    New Activities:  A wonderful activity programme has been developed for the reimagined museum, with activities for people of all ages, including a new schools programme from September. The activities kick off with a series of family activities on Saturday 15th July (free after admission).

    The museum will be open from 12 – 4.30pm Wednesday – Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays.   Admission is £3 adults, children free. Many of the activities for families are free after admission.

    It relies on News feeds from Councils, BBC, Police, Local Blogs, Local news.In order to add extra content and services our external links and displays are free.

    As the blog is to promote local news free and is non commercial non profit making network it would not be possible to pay Press Association Commercial licence fees for content because it is not set up to make a financial gain.

    A recent court case agrees commercial users can be charged for content that is resold for profit. However non commercial blogs etc would not be charged.

    However it appears some press associations are getting rather greedy and are chasing private bloggers for fees if they are using some local newspaper feeds.

    They appear to be using a debt collection business called Buchanan Clark & Wells of Glasgow who are sending made up charges for use of copyright material.

  • So we are on way way out of The European Union

    The option to Vote has now driven us out of The Union.

    We now have to take the advantage and not carry on blaming ourselves or others.It was a shock the way it went BUT GET OVER IT.

    The European Union is an organisation that tries to represent Europe.
    It is now nervous that a country has dared to take control of themselves.

    It will not be easy to deal with them because they want us to fail.
    We will not fail and maybe others will split away.That is their biggest fear.

    Northern Ireland now needs to be used as a trade Area to negotiate with Europeans direct.Taking advantage of its doorstep location with Southern Ireland. The UK needs to lower corporation rates to be the same as Ireland.This will be an advantage for all business.

    We need to create a small coordinating and marketing organisation and use CBI and Group Trading organisations to promote Great Britain.The commonwealth needs to be a bigger part of our trade. Our main objective must be to trade globally.
    The social legislation and general laws need to be rewritten and but back into British Law. Maybe a 5 year project.There is going to be lots to sort. In the meantime we can still use Modified European Law and call it that.

    “¡Por la vida y las aguas NO más monocultivos! Declaración internacional frente a la expansión de monocultivos de árboles: ¡Las Plantaciones NO son Bosques!” -21 de Setiembre de 2017 …Las organizaciones integrantes de La Red Latinoamericana contra los Monocultivos de Árboles – RECOMA junto a las organizaciones campesinas, indígenas, negras, juventudes, ambientalistas y académicos hemos exigido la expulsión de los monocultivos de árboles de nuestros territorios, y la sanción a las empresas forestales que han socavado las relaciones sociales, económicas y ecológicas de las regiones donde han sido implantados como parte del modelo de despojo…Hemos denunciado los impactos de las empresas forestales y de su maquillaje de “economía verde” con el cual pretenden permanecer en los territorios…Estos monocultivos son responsables además de la degradación, contaminación y desaparición de cuerpos de agua en numerosos lugares del planeta, donde habitan comunidades campesinas, negras e indígenas…En Colombia, recientemente, se sancionó a la empresa maderera Smurfit Kappa…por ocupar el cauce de cuerpos de agua. Esto sucede al tiempo que se conocieron crecientes cifras de deforestación que ascienden a más de 178.000 hectáreas, solamente en 2016…En Guatemala en junio de 2015, en la región del Petén, miles de peces murieron repentinamente a lo largo de 105 km del cauce del río; esto asociado al derrame de productos químicos…de la empresa REPSA (Reforestadora de Palma del Petén SA).

  • Human Rights in Business: US govt. launches app to guide development of social compliance systems to address forced & child labour
    [I]n too many countries, illegal labor practices persist, either going unchecked or willfully ignored. Lack of accountability and oversight of labor rights has made it more likely that goods imported into the U.S. may be tainted by child labor and forced labor... ["Comply Chain", an] App created by the U.S. Department of Labor's (DOL) Bureau of International Labor Affairs,... support[s] efforts of companies that seek to address [forced & child labor] within their own supply chains... The App is also an important component of the U.S. government’s National Action Plan on Responsible Business Conduct (NAP-RBC), which was developed pursuant to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights... This App is for all companies. Companies that have not yet put in place social compliance systems may find it most useful. It can also be useful for companies that have systems in place but are seeking improvement, or those who are working with partners in their global supply chains to establish such programs.
