    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.

    How is the weather in your area? Here it has been grey like Autumn for a few days. Sometimes the sun tries to break through but not strong enough. Last evening I noticed -no- birds around only the pigeons cooing which drives me b..... crazy. It was very eery. Reminded me of when we had an eclipse. What do you think?

    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.

If not available and you have time could you tackle manager/supervisor. Many enquiries from different areas might do the trick. Thank you Fancy one right now filled with tuna/corn/mayo.

    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?

    I answered to an email from a neighbour requesting if I would buy something for her £200 as she had trouble with her credit card and wanted it for a birthday the same day. My answer I do not have accounts with Paypal or Amazon and I only mentioned 2 Supermarkets I do home delivery. Phoning her this morning I found out it was a scam. ---Should I take further actions?---- After all the warnings --- and thinking about it now how could I.

    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

    Thousands of small pharmacies are at risk of closure because of long term underfunding combined with crippling extra costs of delivering NHS healthcare during the pandemic. We need people power to persuade Boris Johnson to keep his promise to cover these extra costs and reduce the risk of widespread closures. https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/save-our-local-pharmacies-2 We've got nearly 100,000 signatures now and it would be great to push it over that line, in order to get more national media coverage and make the government sit up and listen.

    Have you seen this? https://bit.ly/33vKrY7 The pandemic isn’t over but the government has already launched a radical plan to overhaul our NHS. It would be the biggest shake up of the NHS in almost a decade, and could affect everything from wait times to how much privatisation is in our health service. We all want to see an NHS that puts patients and its incredible staff first. And some elements of the proposed NHS reforms could be great - like plans for care services to be properly joined up. But others are more worrying, and could see further privatisation, or where you live having an impact on the quality of care you receive. That’s why these reforms need to be properly scrutinised - not rushed out in the middle of a crisis. These reforms could be our chance to help shape the kind of NHS we want - but only if we can get the government to hit pause, and give everyone a say. Will you join me and sign the petition today? https://bit.ly/33vKrY7

  • World Environment Day Date in the current year: June 5, 2021 World Environment DayJune 5 is World Environment Day. This observance was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972, the first celebration took place in 1973. Over 100 countries members of the UN participate in celebration of Wold Environment Day every year. Since 1973 the celebration is always hosted in different city and has a different theme. This gives an opportunity to involve as many people in celebration as possible and raise public awareness of environmental issues in different countries and in the world. Celebration of World Environment Day gained media and celebrities' support, who endorse everyone to be part of it. United Nations Environment Program goodwill ambassadors encourage people to take actions for saving our planet. World Environment Day lets everyone realize their role in caring for the Earth. Everyone's efforts, even efforts of children, are counted. For instance, Nepal encourages children to attend the afforestation programs. Children, who make major contribution for the environment, receive Governmental scholarship.

    Hug Your Cat Day Date in the current year: June 4, 2021 Hug Your Cat DayHug Your Cat Day, sometimes referred to as National Hug Your Cat Day, is an unofficial holiday celebrated on June 4. It is a perfect opportunity for all cat owners to express a little extra love to their furry companions. The origin of Hug Your Cat is unknown, which is quite common for unofficial fun holidays. But do you really need justification to give a hug to your furry friend? Go ahead and give your cat a big squeeze! If your cat is a cuddler, consider yourself lucky. You can curl up on your couch, cuddling with your cat. In case your pet is not fond of hugs, make it quick and beware of claws. Not only is cuddling with cats pleasant, it is also believed to be beneficial for human health. Cats are thought to be able to improve the psychological state of their owners by alleviating negative moods. According to studies, cat purring helps reduce stress levels and makes us feel calmer, which is good for our cardiovascular system. If you don't have your own cat to hug, ask a friend who owns a cat to lend you their pet for some much needed cuddling. We are sure they won't deny you! Or you can adopt a cat from a local shelter and hug your new pet as much as you want. If you are allergic to cats, you can at least watch cute cat videos on YouTube or cat gifs on Tumlbr.

    Had delivery from Sainsbury’s clothes Yodel and was able to follow progress for the first time. Loved it. It showed where driver was, how many deliveries before he would deliver mine and I could calculate roughly when he would arrive at my house. Now I am expecting delivery from Amazon. Yesterday it was a disaster. Did not ring back door bell, phoned and hung up before I even was able to get to phone. Went to door and the delivery van had gone. Redelivery. I was furious and rung help -line. 0800 2797234. Surprising they always answer very quickly, very helpful. I only have a few apps. but if I download the Amazon app. will I have the same facilities checking? Today redelivery up to 9 pm. Email arrived at 8am. Do I dare just pop into wash room where my fridge is?
