    Winter is coming, and millions of us are facing a surge in our energy bills. The average customer could see their bill rise by hundreds of pounds a year, and for low income households it could be much more. People all over the country could be left with an impossible choice: whether to “eat or heat”. Support that is available doesn’t go nearly far enough. The Warm Home Discount Scheme, designed to help low income households keep warm over winter, has been fixed for almost a decade. Despite rumours of a small raise, experts like Martin Lewis are pushing for much more. It’s time for us to join them. We need MPs to take urgent action, and if enough of us sign the petition today, we can focus their attention on protecting their constituents from going cold this winter. And we’ll show them how to do it: by raising the Warm Home Discount Scheme payment. Will you join me and sign the petition today? https://bit.ly/3ivRtnu

    Ordered a few things from “McKay”. Unfortunately have to return one item due to hideous size/style. Take to Asda which is miles away. McKay only if I can get a lift or taxi fare £20.00 Comment: We stopped free returns on -- sales -- items. They lost my custom and will check other shops for their return instructions.

    The insect apocalypse keeps unfolding -- silently, billions of bees, butterflies, and other extraordinary tiny creatures are dying off, and the consequences may soon be catastrophic for our crops and fragile ecosystems worldwide. Agricultural pesticides are among the key culprits. But now the European Union is considering an ambitious proposal to radically cut pesticide use by 2030 that could pave the way for a total phase out across Europe in 15 years. As a trading superpower, the EU has enormous influence on setting global standards -- and a win here could have ripple effects globally. But first we must prevent the powerful chemical lobby from wrecking the plan. This is why we are joining an incredible coalition of environmental groups, farmers, beekeepers, and scientists to bring the 1 million citizen voices needed and ensure EU institutions address our demands. And if we all join now, we will also empower key parliamentarians and officials with a massive boost of global public support so they resist the pressure, and help save our bees, butterflies, and farmers from deadly pesticides. We've done it in the past, let's do it again! Click now to stop the insect apocalypse https://secure.avaaz.org/campaign/en/save_bees_and_farmers_global_43/?tfLKjlb&v=501952365&cl=18611592513&_checksum=c804fc6c5d659bdde5c564ec1e86d346642e95b25bd202fdf2143e1783961762

    Hello, Have you seen this? https://bit.ly/3DELCWa Thousands of bank branches and ATMs are disappearing from high streets across the UK. For many, losing their local bank isn’t just an inconvenience. Elderly people, rural communities and people without access to the internet are being cut off from vital banking services - and easy access to their own money. But we have a chance to reverse this trend - and keep these important services open: the government has launched a consultation on how to protect our access to cash. It could include new rules to make it harder for banks to close branches if it cuts people off from services. And they’re asking the public to have their say. But you can bet that banks who want to put cost cutting before the communities they serve will be feeding in too. So that's where we come in. If thousands of us sign a huge petition asking the government to put in place legal protections to make sure we keep our access to banking, sending a powerful message - and drowning out those who want otherwise. Will you join me and sign the petition today? https://bit.ly/3DELCWa

    Are you aware off --- would think it will affect holiday spending as well. Have you seen this? https://tinyurl.com/yywa8oh8 Mastercard have announced a fivefold increase in transaction fees for British shoppers buying online from EU-based companies, starting in October. And others might not be far behind. Mastercard claims that this is just the price of doing business now that we’ve left the EU. But that just isn’t the case. What’s worse, other companies like Visa have refused to rule out forcing the same increase on their customers. Can you join tens of thousands of 38 Degrees members by signing this petition to demand that Mastercard reverse their post-Brexit fivefold increase of transaction fees?

    Have you seen this? https://bit.ly/3mI3o1N The government are restricting access to information that we, the public, have a right to know about. A new report has found that there's a secretive government team who can obstruct Freedom of Information requests from journalists. It’s a threat to the ability for us all to hold politicians to account. This murky team's existence was exposed by the independent global media organisation OpenDemocracy. Media giants across the political spectrum have condemned the blocking of FOI requests. And a former Conservative minister has demanded the government explain itself. What’s missing is a huge public outcry. That's where we come in. Imagine if tens of thousands of us came together to tell the government to shut down this controversial team - called the "clearing house". The public outcry will add to the pressure on the government and could be the thing which stops them blocking requests for information. Will you join me and sign the petition today? https://bit.ly/3mI3o1N

    Thank you for signing the petition to support President Biden’s proposal to stop global tax dodging. Together we have made history. At the G7 in June finance ministers agreed to a groundbreaking deal to tackle global corporate tax dodging. Over 130 countries are now on board with this approach. But the current deal does not go far enough. The minimum corporate tax rate agreed is only 15%. We need to see 25%. And the deal doesn’t do much for lower income countries. Most of the extra money will go to the richest countries. We now need to campaign for a better deal.

    This isn't global warming anymore. It's global scorching. Our world is hotter now than any time in recorded history, unleashing a firestorm of heatwaves, megadroughts, and acidifying seas. We are shattering the temple of life, with a million species on the edge of extinction. Within 50 years, 1.5 billion people could be forced to flee temperatures as hot as the Sahara desert -- already 20 million are forced to run every year. It's one of the greatest upheavals of life on earth, and it's caused by a global rise of just 1°C. We're on track for 3°C. Just imagine the hostile and desolate planet our children will inherit. But here's the most important bit: We CAN still turn this around -- we may be the last generation who can. The next five months are critical. World leaders will hold two major UN summits, where momentous decisions on the climate and extinction crisis must be made. It could change everything -- or nothing. It means we only have 150 days to shake our leaders into action, radically grow our team to overpower the fossil fuel army, supercharge massive marches, and get the world behind our courageous plan to save nature. Earth can't wait anymore. This is one of the most important times to be alive on this fragile planet, because it all hangs in the balance. We have to give it everything we've got, and just a small weekly donation from each of us will make an almighty difference. If you've ever thought of donating, do it now and let's fight for the future of our world: I'LL DONATE £1 WEEKLY I'LL DONATE £2 WEEKLY I'LL DONATE £3 WEEKLY OTHER AMOUNT The UN Biodiversity Summit will happen in October, and aims to end the extinction crisis with bold new protections for nature. And then just a few weeks later, the global Climate Summit: our best chance to secure new commitments to avoid a climate catastrophe. It will not be easy, but there is reason to hope. Almost all the world's biggest economies have now pledged to end carbon pollution by 2050 -- and the pandemic has shown that bold, systemic changes can happen far quicker than anyone dreamed. Humanity is learning that everything on our beautiful planet is intimately connected. But this is an emergency and pledges aren't enough. We need real, decisive action -- and that will take absolutely everything we've got over the next 5 months. Here's the plan: We'll massively scale up our team of media and policy experts, researchers, and organisers to pressure governments to sign a bold new deal to save nature; We'll bring brave indigenous leaders to the summits, ensuring their urgent call to protect life-giving ecosystems is heard loud and clear; We'll publish bombshell reports and shine a glaring media spotlight on the shady lobbying tactics of the fossil fuel giants; and We'll help organise historic marches, ensuring our leaders know the world is watching. The threats we face are no longer just serious; they are a matter of survival. Earth can't wait anymore: it needs a powerful voice as leaders decide the future. A tiny regular donation will make an incredible difference to what we can do together -- chip in now so we can be deafening: I'LL DONATE £1 WEEKLY I'LL DONATE £2 WEEKLY I'LL DONATE £3 WEEKLY OTHER AMOUNT In the battle to save our world, there is no certainty; only opportunity. And together, our years of marching, protesting, and advocacy have helped create the golden opportunities ahead. Together, we are changing the world -- and I am now more hopeful than I've been in a very long time. And hope is power. The power to rise and fight and charge like never before. Because it's clear that when we come together, all 66 million of us, our movement is capable of the most extraordinary things. This moment demands nothing less. With fierce hope and determination, always, Mike, Chris, Marigona, Martyna, Diego, Sofia, Alis, Mouhamad, Bert and the whole team at Avaaz PS. This might be your first donation to our movement ever. But what a first donation! Did you know that Avaaz relies entirely on small donations from members like you? That's why we're fully independent, nimble and effective. Join the over 1 million people who've donated to make Avaaz a real force for good in the world.

    Heatwave in Canada and USA. On top they also have outage in electricity. People dying. Must be a terrifying situation. Watched interview with American scientists: Corporations portray themselves as super green when the opposite is true. When scientists speak out they and their families are threatened. What a world to live in now. I am glad some youngsters are speaking out but wondered do they live accordingly e.g. do not buy the latest gadgets?

    National Ice Cream Cake Day Date in the current year: June 27, 2021 National Ice Cream Cake DayAn ice cream cake is the perfect dessert for a hot summer day. Celebrate National Ice Cream Cake Day on June 27 by treating yourself to a slice or two of delicious ice cream cake with your favourite flavour. An ice cream cake is exactly what it says on the tin: a cake that contains ice cream. Unlike the popular dessert baked Alaska, the ice cream in ice cream cakes doesn’t go into oven; it is added to the cake as it’s being assembled. Ice cream cakes are believed to have derived from Victorian era desserts called bombes, which consisted of fruit and ice cream served frozen in a mold. They were named bombes because the most commonly used molds were spherical, so the dessert resembled a cannonball. Sometimes bombes were lined with biscuits or cake; this variation eventually evolved into the ice cream cake. The first ice cream cake recipes date back to the 1870s. An ice cream cake typically consists of alternating layers of sponge cake and ice cream; the most popular variation is a three-layer cake, with a layer of ice cream between two layers of sponge cake. The sponge cake is baked as one would normally do, cut into the required shape if necessary, and then frozen. Ice cream is shaped using a mold, and the cake is then assembled. The trick is to assemble the cake while all the layers are still frozen. Ice cream cakes are usually frosted with whipped cream for two main reasons. First, most frostings do not adhere well to ice cream and frozen sponge cake. Second, the light, airy texture of whipped cream is believed to complement the frozen cake perfectly. Ice cream cake is a popular dessert in North America and Australia, but it is not particularly known in Europe. In the United States, ice cream cake is often served at birthdays, summer weddings, and Fourth of July parties. Independence Day-themed ice cream cakes are usually decorated in red, white and blue to resemble the American flag. The Carvel ice cream franchise is particularly famous for its ice cream cakes, especially Cookie Puss, Hug-Me Bear and Fudgie the Whale. It has released multiple holiday-themed ice cream cakes, including, for example, Christmas-themed Snow Man and Santa Claus, Thanksgiving-themed Tom the Turkey, Halloween-themed Wicky the Witch and Dumpy the Pumpkin, Seamus the Leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day, and others. National Ice Cream Cake Day was submitted to National Day Calendar by the Jurado family and Cupcakes for a Cause, a Texas A&M student organization that brings together students who love baking to raise money for local charities. It has been celebrated annually since 2018. Celebrate the holiday by ordering your favorite ice cream cake from a local bakery or making one yourself if you’re up to the task. Don’t be afraid to experiment with ice cream flavors and decorate the cake as outrageously as you want to! Invite your friends over to share the delicious cake with you and don’t forget to post pictures of the cake on social media using the hashtag #NationalIceCreamCakeDay to spread the word.

    Have you seen this? https://bit.ly/3d8Y2Kd Channel 4 is under threat. Oliver Dowden, the Culture Secretary, wants to sell off the broadcaster - which is currently publicly owned - to a private buyer. The result could be cuts to spending as a new owner looks to turn a profit - and could undermine Channel 4’s remit of nurturing the UK creative sector. The government is unveiling the plans today, so it’s the perfect moment to push back! And we’re not alone - Sir David Attenborough has also accused the government of pursuing “short-sighted political and financial attacks” on our broadcasters. If thousands of us add our names to an open letter today to defend Channel 4, it could be enough to damage the government’s plans before they’ve even launched. Together, we can make it clear that the public simply does not support these unnecessary changes to a crucial and innovative broadcaster. Will you join me and sign the petition today? https://bit.ly/3d8Y2Kd

    We heard a lot about the American chicken deal now it is -- copied A UK trade deal with Australia could have terrible consequences for our food standards, British farmers' livelihoods and the environment. Under plans announced today, cheap hormone injected beef and fruit and veg treated with harmful bee-killing chemicals could be imported to the UK. Does anyone have any further information?
