Journalist/cartoonist Ted Rall, for example, used Kickstarter to fund a month of reporting inside Afghanistan. His cartoons from the field were sent first to the 211 Kickstarter supporters who funded his trip.Kickstarter helps people fund a project, almost any kind of project, by using its site as a platform for collecting donation pledges, publishing videos and updates and more. More than 380,000 people have now pledged over $30 million to fund home-recorded music projects, independent films and books and many other creative projects, in just 20 months since the site launched. Below are three of my favorite videos from Kickstarter’s Best of 2010 collection.Note that all the below examples are projects that exceeded their funding goals, in some cases raising well over $100,000. It’s hard not to imagine a future where a site like this helps fund a cultural renaissance. How do projects like these pull it off? See our write-up of some lessons learned by people who used Kickstarter this year with success. marshall kirkpatrick 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

first_imgAn Assam-based NGO specialising in child rights has warned of the psychological impact of the National Register of Citizens (NRC) on children and asked the authorities not to treat them as “collateral damage” from the expensive exercise.The final NRC is scheduled to be published on August 31. There are fears that at least 20 lakh people – many of them children – would be labelled foreigners after being excluded from the list.The Universal Team for Social Action and Help (UTSAH) took to social media to remind the government of the need to honour India’s commitment to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.“We support NRC as a local organisation, but a violation of children’s rights cannot be treated as collateral damage acceptable in pursuit of an exercise deemed to be in national interest. The government should ensure the protection of children from all forms of physical and psychological abuse without discrimination of any kind,” Utsah executive director Miguel Das Queah said.Fact-finding panelHe said his NGO would constitute a fact-finding committee after the publication of the final NRC list and suggest rectification if any violation of children’s rights was found.In a 2018 report, Amnesty International said there were 31 children in Assam’s detention centres for declared foreigners and some of them had come of age in captivity without access to counselling.The report said that girls were allowed to stay with their mothers while boys above the age of six were sent out of the centres. “Although this takes them out of the confines of the prison, often there is no one willing to take responsibility for them,” it said.A 2018 National Human Rights Commission report on Assam’s detention centres underlined the need for caring and protecting children of “foreigners” in detention camps under the Juvenile Justice (Care and Protection of Children) Act, 2015.The National Campaign Against Torture too had found out that “children are the worst victims of mental torture” in the NRC process. “They are witness to the mental trauma of their parents and bear the brunt of their parents’ frustrations. India’s denial of citizenship to children born after 2004 is a violation of Article 7 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child relating to the right of nationality,” its report said.On August 13, the Supreme Court said that children born after December 3, 2004 were not eligible to be included in the NRC if any of the parents was a doubtful voter, a declared foreigner or with cases pending at a Foreigners’ Tribunals.last_img read more

first_imgTop seed Somdev Devvarman assured India at least a silver medal in the tennis competition of the Commonwealth Games by storming into the men’s singles final with a straight set win over Australia’s Matthew Ebden here today.Somdev, ranked 97th, outplayed third seed and world number 165 Ebden, 6-3 6-1 in one hour and 11 minutes in the men’s singles semifinals at the Centre Court of the R K Khanna Tennis stadium.His next opponent will also be an Australian as the other semifinal is an all-Australian affair between second seed Peter Luczak and fifth seed Greg Jones.Unlike the previous matches, the semifinal featured long rallies but Somdev had strong enough legs and stamina to outlast his opponent.Ebden was coming into this match after playing an energy-sapping three-setter against British Joshua Goodall and perhaps had not recovered from the gruelling encounter.Nevertheless, he did pose some questions for Somdev but the Indian was equipped with enough answers.The match never rose to expected highs ever since Ebden dropped his serve in the first game. The Australian slowly picked up but Somdev gradually tightened his grip over the match.The Indian broke Ebden twice in both the sets. He is also in contention in the men’s doubles and is scheduled to play semifinals with Rohan Bopanna later in the dayWith inputs from PTIlast_img read more
