It wasn’t a pretty sight. Assets under management now stand at £15.8bn, a £7.7bn drop on the end-March figure. Of course, the real loss is far greater than that. Gartmore managed to lose billions of pounds in assets while its rivals were making hay on the back of booming equity markets. The firm has continued to lose assets since the start of the year, shedding some £790m assets in the first seven weeks of 2011, even though soon-to-be-owner Henderson had said clients would stick around. Although the rate of outflows is starting to slow (see graph, left), we are still sceptical as to whether Henderson can make this acquisition work. St James’s Place (results below) is a better pick while Jupiter and Hargreaves are also good bets. center_img whatsapp KCS-content Read This NextNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Press Freedom Index 2011/2012

first_img =http://en.rsf.org/press-freedom-index-2011-2012,1043.html January 31, 2012 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Press Freedom Index 2011/2012 Organisation Syria, Bahrain and Yemen get worst ever rankings“This year’s index sees many changes in the rankings, changes that reflect a year that was incredibly rich in developments, especially in the Arab world,” Reporters Without Borders said today as it released its 10th annual press freedom index. “Many media paid dearly for their coverage of democratic aspirations or opposition movements. Control of news and information continued to tempt governments and to be a question of survival for totalitarian and repressive regimes. The past year also highlighted the leading role played by netizens in producing and disseminating news.“Crackdown was the word of the year in 2011. Never has freedom of information been so closely associated with democracy. Never have journalists, through their reporting, vexed the enemies of freedom so much. Never have acts of censorship and physical attacks on journalists seemed so numerous. The equation is simple: the absence or suppression of civil liberties leads necessarily to the suppression of media freedom. Dictatorships fear and ban information, especially when it may undermine them.“It is no surprise that the same trio of countries, Eritrea, Turkmenistan and North Korea, absolute dictatorships that permit no civil liberties, again occupy the last three places in the index. This year, they are immediately preceded at the bottom by Syria, Iran and China, three countries that seem to have lost contact with reality as they have been sucked into an insane spiral of terror, and by Bahrain and Vietnam, quintessential oppressive regimes. Other countries such as Uganda and Belarus have also become much more repressive.“This year’s index finds the same group of countries at its head, countries such as Finland, Norway and Netherlands that respect basic freedoms. This serves as a reminder that media independence can only be maintained in strong democracies and that democracy needs media freedom. It is worth noting the entry of Cape Verde and Namibia into the top twenty, two African countries where no attempts to obstruct the media were reported in 2011.”Protest movementsThe Arab world was the motor of history in 2011 but the Arab uprisings have had contrasting political outcomes so far, with Tunisia and Bahrain at opposite ends of the scale. Tunisia (134th) rose 30 places in index and, with much suffering, gave birth to a democratic regime that has not yet fully accepted a free and independent press. Bahrain (173rd) fell 29 places because of its relentless crackdown on pro-democracy movements, its trials of human rights defenders and its suppression of all space for freedom.While Libya (154th) turned the page on the Gaddafi era, Yemen succumbed to violence between President Ali Abdallah Saleh’s opponents and supporters and languished in 171st position. The future of both of these countries remains uncertain, and the place they will allow the media is undecided. The same goes for Egypt, which fell 39 places to 166th because the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces, in power since February, dashed the hopes of democrats by continuing the Mubarak dictatorship’s practices. There were three periods of exceptional violence for journalists: in February, November and December.Already poorly ranked in 2010, Syria fell further in the index, to 176th position, because total censorship, widespread surveillance, indiscriminate violence and government manipulation made it impossible for journalists to work.Elsewhere in the world, pro-democracy movements that tried to follow the Arab example were ruthlessly suppressed. Many arrests were made in Vietnam (172nd). In China (174th), the government responded to regional and local protests and to public impatience with scandals and acts of injustice by feverishly reinforcing its system of controlling news and information, carrying out extrajudicial arrests and stepping up Internet censorship. There was a dramatic rise in the number of arrests in Azerbaijan (162nd), where Ilham Aliyev’s autocratic government did not hesitate to jail netizens, abduct opposition journalists and bar foreign reporters in order to impose a news blackout on the unrest.Led by President Yoweri Museveni, Uganda (139th) launched an unprecedented crackdown on opposition movements and independent media after the elections in February. Similarly, Chile (80th) fell 47 places because of its many freedom of information violations, committed very often by the security forces during student protests. The United States (47th) also owed its fall of 27 places to the many arrests of journalist covering Occupy Wall Street protests.Several European countries fall far behind rest of continentThe index has highlighted the divergence of some European countries from the rest of the continent. The crackdown on protests after President Lukashenko’s reelection caused Belarus to fall 14 places to 168th. At a time when it is portraying itself as a regional model, Turkey (148th) took a big step backwards and lost 10 places. Far from carrying out promised reforms, the judicial system launched a wave of arrests of journalists that was without precedent since the military dictatorship.Within the European Union, the index reflects a continuation of the very marked distinction between countries such as Finland and Netherlands that have always had a good evaluation and countries such as Bulgaria (80th), Greece (70th) and Italy (61st) that fail to address the issue of their media freedom violations, above all because of a lack of political will. There was little progress from France, which went from 44th to 38th, or from Spain (39th) and Romania (47th). Media freedom is a challenge that needs addressing more than ever in the Balkans, which want to join the European Union but are suffering the negative effects of the economic crisis.Endemic violenceMany countries are marked by a culture of violence towards the media that has taken a deep hold. It will be hard to reverse the trends in these countries without an effective fight against impunity. Mexico (149th) and Honduras (135th) are two cases in point. Pakistan (151st) was the world’s deadliest country for journalists for the second year running. Somalia (164th), which has been at war for 20 years, shows no sign of finding a way out of the chaos in which journalists are paying a heavy price.In Iran (175th), hounding and humiliating journalists has been part of officialdom’s political culture for years. The regime feeds on persecution of the media. Iraq (152nd) fell back 22 places and is now worryingly approaching its 2008 position (158th).Noteworthy changesSouth Sudan, a new nation facing many challenges, has entered the index in a respectable position (111th) for what is a breakaway from one of the worst ranked countries, Sudan (170th). Burma (169th) has a slightly better position than in previous years as a result of political changes in recent months that have raised hopes but need to be confirmed. Niger (29th) achieved the biggest rise in a single year, 75 places, thanks to a successful political transition.It was Africa that also saw the biggest falls in the index. Djibouti, a discreet little dictatorship in the Horn of Africa, fell 49 places to 159th. Malawi (146th) fell 67 places because of the totalitarian tendencies of its president, Bingu Wa Mutharika. Uganda, mentioned above, fell 43 places to 139th. Finally, Côte d’Ivoire fell 41 places to 159th because the media were badly hit by the fighting between the supporters of rival presidents Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouattara.One of the biggest falls in Latin America was by Brazil, which plunged 41 places to 99th because the high level of violence resulted in the deaths of three journalists and bloggers.

COVID live updates: South African variant found in US for first time

first_imgMyriam Borzee/iStockBy MORGAN WINSOR, ERIN SCHUMAKER, EMILY SHAPIRO and IVAN PEREIRA, ABC News(NEW YORK) — A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now infected more than 101 million people worldwide and killed over 2.1 million of them, according to real-time data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.Here’s how the news is developing Thursday. All times Eastern:Jan 28, 1:17 pmUS has ‘good shot’ to get all kids in school by fall: Biden’s surgeon general pickVivek Murthy, the nominee to become surgeon general, told The Washington Post Live he thinks the U.S. has a “good shot” to get all kids in school by the fall.Murthy said the nation must takes these steps: vaccinate staff; ensure schools have the resources to take precautionary measures including PPE and tests; and lower “background rates of infection,” which he defines as rates of transmission in the community.“When those rates are really high, it makes it harder to prevent infection from getting into the school. So we’ve got to get that background infection rate down, and we’ve got to vaccinate teachers and other educators and staff in schools. As well as, when we do have the opportunity to vaccinate kids when the trial data comes through and shows that it is safe and effective, that we’ve got to start vaccinating children, too,” Murthy said.Jan 28, 11:50 amSouth African variant found in US for 1st timeThe United States’ first known cases of the South African variant have been detected in two people in South Carolina, the state’s Department of Health and Environmental Control said.The department said, “there is no known travel history and no connection between these two cases.”Both cases are among adults, one who is from the Lowcountry and one who is from the Pee Dee region, according to South Carolina health officials.The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it’s aware of the cases and it “recommends that people avoid travel at this time.”The B.1.351 South African variant has been identified in more than 30 countries, the South Carolina officials said.“Experts agree that existing vaccines work to protect us from this variant, even if we don’t know precisely how effective they are,” the department added. “At this time, there’s no evidence to suggest that the B.1.351 variant causes more severe illness.”On Thursday Dr. Anthony Fauci told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America that the South African variant “troubles” him.Fauci said lab experiments show the neutralizing antibodies induced by existing COVID-19 vaccines are “diminished by multifold” when tested against the South Africa variant.“It’s still within the range of what you would predict to be protective,” he added, “but I take no great comfort in that.”However, scientists are already working on vaccines that will specifically target the South Africa variant, according to Fauci.“May not be necessary,” he said, “but if it is we’ll already be on the road to be able to give people a boost that directs against the South African isolate.”Jan 28, 11:40 amDaily case average sees steep drop in last 2 weeksIn the span of two weeks, the national seven-day average of daily cases has declined by 34% — the steepest non-holiday-related drop in cases the U.S. has seen since the summer, according to ABC News’ analysis of data compiled by the COVID Tracking Project.California appears to have seen the most drastic drop, as the seven-day average of daily cases has been nearly slashed in half over the last two weeks.Despite continued positive signs in case and hospitalization trends, daily death numbers are still incredibly high. Another 3,943 deaths were reported on Wednesday, according to data collected by Johns Hopkins University — that is approximately one death recorded every 22 seconds.Jan 28, 10:49 amNew variants fuel Africa’s 2nd wave, WHO saysCOVID-19 cases and deaths are surging across Africa as new, more contagious variants of the novel coronavirus spread to additional countries, the World Health Organization warned Thursday.“The variant which was first detected in South Africa has spread quickly beyond Africa and so what’s keeping me awake at night right now is that it’s very likely circulating in a number of African countries,” Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, the WHO’s regional director for Africa, said in a statement.Diagnosed COVID-19 infections increased by 50% in Africa between Dec. 29 and Jan. 25, when compared with the previous four weeks. Deaths from the disease rose two-fold in the same period, with over 15,000 concentrated in 10 mainly southern and northern African nations, according to the WHO.Over the last week, more than 175,000 new cases and over 6,200 new deaths were reported across the continent. There was a small dip in cases in South Africa, but 22 countries continue to see their numbers surge, according to the WHO.The 501Y.V2 variant, first identified in South Africa, is “predominant and powering record case numbers in South Africa and the sub-region,” the WHO said. The strain has been detected in Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, the French Indian Ocean region of Mayotte, Zambia and at least 24 non-African nations, according to the WHO.Meanwhile, another new, highly contagious variant called B117, which was initially detected in the United Kingdom, has been found in Gambia and Nigeria.The WHO said it is working to track and tackle new strains of the deadly virus. The U.N. agency, along with the Africa Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has helped set up a COVID-19 genomic sequencing laboratory network with labs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Gambia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Senegal, South Africa and Uganda.“In addition to the new variants, COVID-19 fatigue, and the aftermath of year-end gatherings risk powering a perfect storm and driving up Africa’s second wave and overwhelming health facilities,” Moeti said. “Africa is at a crossroads. We must stick to our guns and double down on the tactics we know work so well. That is mask wearing, handwashing and safe social distancing. Countless lives depend on it.”Jan 28, 9:36 am847,000 US workers filed for unemployment insurance last weekTwo pieces of economic data released Thursday highlight the pain of the U.S. economy as the coronavirus pandemic rages on.Some 847,000 people nationwide lost their jobs and filed for unemployment insurance last week, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. That’s a decrease of 67,000 compared to the previous week’s figure.In addition, the Department of Labor said more than 18 million people were still claiming some form of unemployment benefits through all U.S. government programs as of the week ending Jan. 9. For the comparable week last year, that number was approximately two million.While the weekly unemployment filings figure has dropped off significantly since peaking at some 6.9 million in a single week last spring, they still remain at historically high levels.Meanwhile, the U.S. Department of Commerce said Thursday that U.S. gross domestic product grew at a 4% annualized rate last quarter — a significant slowdown compared to the previous quarter, which saw an increase of 33.4% on an annualized basis. The third quarter’s huge spike, however, reflected businesses reopening after mass shutdowns.Jan 28, 9:20 amAmericans can expect to see ‘escalation’ of vaccine availability, Fauci saysDr. Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to U.S. President Joe Biden and the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, said Americans can expect to see more COVID-19 vaccine doses available throughout the country in the coming weeks.“As we get into February, March and April, we’re going to see an escalation of availability of doses that we may have not had a week or two or three ago,” Fauci, who is also the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos in an interview Thursday on Good Morning America.Although COVID-19 data is starting to show some promising trends, Fauci said the U.S. outbreak is “still a very serious situation.”“If you look throughout the country, the dynamics of the outbreak are a little bit unstable,” he noted, “even though for the most part we’re seeing general trends, seven-day trends of cases going down and ultimately, hopefully, hospitalizations and deaths.”When asked about reopening schools safely, Fauci said COVID-19 transmission rates in schools actually appear to be less than in communities when the schools have the resources and protection they need.“So if you have a situation where you have dynamics of a viral spread in a community, it’s less likely that the children who are in the school — if we do things right, it’s less likely that they’re going to get infected,” he said. “Obviously we want to get the teachers vaccinated, we want to make sure they have the resources to do it correctly. But when you look at the history of how this virus is moving in schools, it seems to be less spreading there than it is in the community.”Fauci also expressed concern over the new, more contagious variant of the novel coronavirus that was first identified in South Africa and has since spread to dozens of other nations, including the United States.“The one in South Africa, George, troubles me,” he said, explaining that lab experiments show the neutralizing antibodies induced by existing COVID-19 vaccines are “diminished by multifold” when tested against the South Africa variant, called 501Y.V2.“It’s still within the range of what you would predict to be protective,” he added, “but I take no great comfort in that.”However, scientists are already working on vaccines that will specifically target the South Africa strain, according to Fauci.“May not be necessary,” he said, “but if it is we’ll already be on the road to be able to give people a boost that directs against the South African isolate.”Jan 28, 8:13 amCOVID-19 vaccinations won’t be a prerequisite at Tokyo Olympics, organizers sayBeing vaccinated against COVID-19 will not be a requirement to compete in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics, organizers said Thursday.The 2020 Summer Olympics were supposed to kick off in the Japanese capital last year on July 24. But in late March, amid mounting calls to delay or cancel the upcoming Games, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and Japan’s prime minister announced that the event would be held a year later due to the coronavirus pandemic.The Games are now scheduled to open in Tokyo this summer on July 23, but doubt has surfaced as Japan — and much of the world — grapples with a resurgence of COVID-19 infections. Moreover, Japan is not expected to begin administering its first round of COVID-19 vaccinations until the end of February.During a press briefing Thursday following a call with the IOC’s president, organizers were asked how Japan will safely host the Olympics as scheduled when the country’s mass vaccination campaign is not expected to inoculate most of the population by that date.“Since last year, we have been having thorough debates and discussions on that topic. We do not consider the vaccine as a prerequisite,” Toshiro Muto, chief executive officer of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee, told reporters. “Of course, it’s desirable to have as many people as possible vaccinated, and that would bring about positive benefit. But even if vaccination is not done, we will be able to hold the Games.”Muto added that COVID-19 vaccinations would be administered to athletes but it wouldn’t be an obligation.As for vaccinating staff and volunteers, Muto said that decision will be made at the national government level.Yoshiro Mori, president of the Tokyo 2020 organizing committee, said they are still considering holding the Games without spectators.“One option among many would be to hold the games without spectators,” he told reporters. “We don’t want to do this but we must take this scenario into consideration.”With less than six months left until the opening day, a recent poll by Japanese news agency Kyodo found that around 80% of people in Japan believe the Tokyo Olympics should not be held this summer. When asked by ABC News about that opinion, Mori said: “There is a balance. On one hand there is criticism, the other hand is support.”Mori noted that the IOC’s president has “strongly backed up our efforts” to hold the Tokyo Olympics as planned.“Nowhere did we hear objections or doubt,” he told reporters. “Everyone wants to successful hold the games.”Jan 28, 6:32 amUK prime minister hints that England’s lockdown won’t end before March 8British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has indicated that England’s lockdown restrictions will remain in place until at least early March.In a statement to lawmakers at the U.K. House of Commons on Wednesday, Johnson said officials “do not yet have enough data to know exactly how soon it will be safe to reopen our society and economy.” But he expressed hope that schools could reopen from March 8, so long as his government meets its target of vaccinating everyone in the top four priority groups by mid-February.The prime minister also announced new restrictions for travelers arriving in England from countries deemed to be high-risk. He said the United Kingdom remains in a “perilous situation” with more than 37,000 people hospitalized with COVID-19 — almost double the amount during the previous peak in April.During a press conference later Wednesday, Johnson told reporters that March 8 was the “earliest” date by which the government could “responsibly” allow schoolchildren to return to classrooms.The comments come after the U.K. became the fifth country in the world to record more than 100,000 deaths from COVID-19.England entered its third national lockdown of the coronavirus pandemic on Jan. 5.Although Johnson is the prime minister of the U.K., his administration is only responsible for COVID-19 restrictions in England because public health legislation is devolved to national governments within the U.K., meaning that Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland are responsible for their own coronavirus-related policies.Jan 28, 6:06 amAlabama detects first cases of UK variantA new, more contagious variant of the novel coronavirus first identified in the United Kingdom has been detected in Alabama for the first time.The Alabama Department of Public Health announced Wednesday that two cases of the variant were confirmed in Montgomery County residents and a third in a Jefferson County resident. Two of the patients are children under the age of 19.“These are the first reported cases in Alabama of the variant which was first detected in the United Kingdom in late 2020,” the department said in a statement. “This variant is associated with increased person-to-person transmission of COVID-19. ADPH is closely monitoring the emergence of this variant which has been detected in at least 24 other states.”The so-called B117 variant, which is believed to have emerged in England in September, has been detected in more than two dozen U.S. states.Jan 28, 5:29 amCDC projects up to 514K virus deaths in US by Feb. 20The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention now projects that the country will have recorded up to 514,000 COVID-19 deaths by Feb. 20.The CDC on Wednesday published its latest national ensemble forecast, which predicts that the country’s COVID-19 death rate will likely decrease over the next four weeks and that 13,500 to 25,000 new fatalities from the disease will likely be reported in the week ending Feb. 20. A total of 479,000 to 514,000 COVID-19 deaths are projected to be reported nationwide by this date.Last week’s national ensemble forecast predicted there would be a total of 465,000 to 508,000 COVID-19 deaths reported nationwide by Feb. 13.Jan 28, 5:18 amUS has detected 315 cases of UK variant so far, CDC data showsThe United States has detected at least 315 confirmed cases of the highly contagious variant of the novel coronavirus that first emerged in the United Kingdom, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.California and Florida are tied at 92 cases each for the U.S. state with the most confirmed cases of the so-called B117 variant, according to CDC data.The variant was first identified in England in September and has since spread to dozens of other countries around the world.Jan 28, 4:06 amWHO team completes quarantine for pandemic probe in Wuhan, ChinaA World Health Organization team emerged from their 14-day quarantine in the Chinese city of Wuhan on Thursday to begin field work in their investigation of the origins of the virus that cause the COVID-19 pandemic.China’s COVID-19 regulations required all members of the team to complete 14 days of quarantine upon their arrival. They have been taking part in virtual meetings during the quarantine period.The researchers were seen leaving their hotel and boarding a bus on Thursday afternoon.Jan 28, 3:49 amUS reports over 152,000 new casesThere were 152,478 new cases of COVID-19 confirmed in the United States on Wednesday, according to a real-time count kept by Johns Hopkins University.Wednesday’s case count is far less than the country’s all-time high of 300,282 newly confirmed infections on Jan. 2, Johns Hopkins data shows.An additional 3,943 fatalities from COVID-19 were registered nationwide on Wednesday, down from a peak of 4,466 new deaths on Jan. 12, according to Johns Hopkins data.COVID-19 data may be skewed due to possible lags in reporting over the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday weekend.A total of 25,598,062 people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, and at least 429,195 have died, according to Johns Hopkins data. The cases include people from all 50 U.S. states, Washington, D.C., and other U.S. territories as well as repatriated citizens.Much of the country was under lockdown by the end of March as the first wave of the pandemic hit. By May 20, all U.S. states had begun lifting stay-at-home orders and other restrictions put in place to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus. The day-to-day increase in the country’s cases then hovered around 20,000 for a couple of weeks before shooting back up over the summer.The numbers lingered around 40,000 to 50,000 from mid-August through early October before surging again to record levels, crossing 100,000 for the first time on Nov. 4, then reaching 200,000 on Nov. 27 before topping 300,000 on Jan. 2.So far, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has authorized two COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use — one developed by U.S. pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, and another developed by American biotechnology company Moderna and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

Blind USC senior walks the football field for the last time as a Trojan

first_imgNovember 30, 2018 /Sports News – National Blind USC senior walks the football field for the last time as a Trojan FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailThe Olson Family(LOS ANGELES) — A blind football player at the University of Southern California walked on the field for the last time recently.Jake Olson, who played as a long snapper for the USC Trojans, was accompanied by his father and his guide dog as he entered the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Nov. 24.The college senior was greeted by cheers. Written by I remember the first time I ran out of the tunnel too (@quebec) pic.twitter.com/DlwinsqNrZ— Jake Olson (@JakeOlson61) November 28, 2018Olson was 10 months old when he lost his left eye due to retinoblastoma. He said he battled cancer in his right eye eight times before he was forced to go completely blind in 2009. He was 12 years old.“We fought so hard and yet cancer wins. Then it’s like, ‘Well, I’m gonna experience something that no one else can experience,’” he told ESPN.Olson never gave up hoping that he’d play football. He said he learned about the position of long snapper and worked tirelessly at it until he made the football team at Lutheran High School in Orange County.After high school in 2015, Olson walked onto the USC team as a freshman. He, the team and its head coach had already formed a bond: Before Olson lost his right eye, he’d been invited to watch the team practice.On the field for USC, Olson’s teammates supported him by clapping to let him know the distance of the snap and then tapping on his leg to let him know when he could snap.At the age of 20, he made his debut as a Trojan long snapper in a match against Western Michigan University in 2017 and has continued to defy the odds, playing golf, becoming a motivational speaker and writing two books.On Nov. 21, he was named the recipient of the 2018 Walter Camp Football Foundation’s Award of Perseverance.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

YESTERYEAR: Lincoln Cotton Mill

first_imgLocated at 1401 Park Street near the old Belt Railroad line, the Lincoln Cotton Mill was one of several that operated in Evansville after the Civil War and into the twentieth century. Founded in 1902 by Charles Brown (pictured here with his family), the company developed into one of the largest cotton mills in the Midwest, employing hundreds of workers until the early 1950s. Whirlpool and other industries later occupied the large warehouse, which was recently razed.FOOTNOTE: We want to thank Patricia Sides, Archivist of Willard Library for contributing this picture that shall increase people’s awareness and appreciation of Evansville’s rich history.

Ocean City Life-Saving Museum Receives $2,000 Contribution

first_imgBy Maddy VitaleThe Richard Somers Questers Chapter 1148 raised funds for six oar locks to be used on a replica of a historic lifeboat on display at the U.S. Life-Saving Station 30 Museum in Ocean City.“Every other year we can apply to the state for matching grants. We raised $1,000 and then the state gave us $1,000 for the six oar locks. They are individually cast and reproductions of what would have been on the lifeboat,” explained Ocean City resident Suzanne Hampton, vice president of Questers 1148.On April 19, the Questers presented John Loeper, chairman of the U.S. Life-Saving Station, with a gift during a ceremony at the station, located at 801 E. Fourth Street.Hampton said Loeper, who is also the curator of the Life-Saving Station Museum, requested the oar locks.“We ask John what he needs at the museum and if there is something he wants to acquire, we try to help with that,” Hampton explained. “The Life-Saving Station pre-dates the Coast Guard. We are local and focused on giving locally.”Dating to the late 1800s, the U.S. Life-Saving Station has been converted into a museum.The U.S. Life-Saving Service, a government agency, was formed in 1848 to rescue shipwrecked passengers and crew members. It was the predecessor to the U.S. Coast Guard, which was created in 1915.Ocean City’s station was occupied by the Life-Saving Service until 1915. The Coast Guard took over then and continued to use it for life-saving operations until the 1940s, before it became a private home. The city acquired it in 2010, beginning the process for the building’s conversion into a museum.The station formally opened to the public as a museum last year to showcase Ocean City’s history with the U.S. Life-Saving Service.The Questers, who raise money through card parties and luncheons to be able to give back to the community, have provided $6,228 to the Life-Saving Station since 2015, Carol Dotts, a member of the Questers said.Ocean City historian John Loeper shows photos of the U.S. Life-Saving Station and the men who worked there a century ago.Hampton noted that this is the third time the Questers have given to the Life-Saving Station Museum, and they hope to continue to do more.“We received a large grant last year for the Lyle Cannon powder flask, a rare acquisition. We paid $2,300,” she said. “It is one of the artifacts at the museum for their collection.”Hampton said that the Questers enjoy giving to the Life-Saving Station for many reasons.“The Questers are all about raising funds for restoration and preservation. We like to help with old buildings that need to be restored, or repurposed,” she said. “We just want to preserve history.”The Life-Saving Station is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only Life-Saving Station in New Jersey operating as a museum, she added.The Questers chapters were founded in 1944 in Fort Washington, Pa., and the local chapter has 21 members.There are five Questers chapters in Cape May County, three of which are in Cape May, Hampton said.In addition to Hampton and Dotts, there are about 19 other members, including Pat Crowley, the treasurer, and Sue Glazier, the president.For more information contact Suzanne Hampton via email at [email protected] Richard Somers Questers Chapter 1148 members Pat Crowley (left), Carol Dotts and Suzanne Hampton present U.S. Life-Saving Station 30 Chairman John Loeper with a check for oar locks.
