Responsible Technology Youth Power Fund – Part 9 of 13 Re The Log Off Movement and Next Gen Connect   SGUK Ep 113 The Log Off Movement – About Us The LOG OFF movement was created in June of 2020 by the then high school senior, Emma Lembke. The movement formed in response to Lembke’s personal struggle with social media usage, its negative impact on her mental health, and the absence of youth voices in the dialogue surrounding social media advocacy. Once launched, LOG OFF dedicated itself to uplifting and empowering youth to tackle the complexities of social media and its impact on younger generations. Initially, this mission was accomplished through an array of initiatives housed within their website: advocacy efforts, youth leadership community, podcast, and blog. As the LOG OFF movement has evolved over the past 3 years, so have its efforts.   OUR MISSION LOG OFF is a youth-led, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to helping kids, teens, and young people build healthy relationships with social media and online platforms.

Grants announced on 3rd August 2023. The two in the spotlight this week are: 5 Rights Foundation and the Center for Intimacy Justice. 5Rights Foundation 5Rights Foundation, the brainchild of Baroness Beeban Kidron, started as a set of principles that would reimagine the digital world as a place children and young people were afforded their existing right to participate in the digital world creatively, knowledgeably and fearlessly. Endorsed and informed by academics, parents, policy makers, teachers and healthcare professionals, these principles were also shaped by what children and young people told us they needed from the digital world to thrive. In 2018, 5Rights developed from an idea into an organisation. Now an internationally active non-governmental, non-profit charitable organisation, 5Rights Foundation...

Equimundo Report__State of The World’s Fathers 2023

Report: State of the Worlds Fathers 2023   SGUK Episode 102 Introduction A direct quote from the Archewell Foundation website about the Equimundo organisation and that Archewell is one a group of organisations who are providing support to enable Equimundo to achieve its aims and objectives. “Equimundo, an organization working internationally to engage men and boys as allies in gender equality, has released the State of the World’s Fathers 2023 report. They conducted research across 17 countries and surveyed thousands of men and women. The 2023 data shows that men are increasingly involved in caregiving and would like to increase their care work at home, although deeply ingrained social norms and a lack of supportive policies and power structures discourage them from doing so. The report recognizes care work as the bedrock of society, and calls for continued advancements towards gender equality. It also emphasizes the need for media representation that normalizes men’s caregiving roles. The Archewell Foundation is proud to have supported this report, as well as Equimundo’s continued...

The Impact of the Archewell Foundation - A Series - Part Two Featuring - URL Media and PressPad   Introduction Hello everyone.  Ivy here.  This weeks podcast looks at two media organisations that are working in partnership with the Archewell Foundation over the last two plus years.  One is USA based and the other is based here in the UK.  Both have increased their activity over the last couple of years or so, but like all small organisations, any help with promotion of their aims and objectives can never do any harm.  Both have measurable data relating to the impact of their work with a variety of individuals and groups.  Nothing on here is about any type of performative activity.  Much ore detail on their respective websites – this is just an overview to show how when project leaders know what they are doing, and join forces with like minded people, and then can be blessed with additional resources this is how you uplift...

Harry and Meghan and their team have made measurable differences in the organisations that they partner with and together they have made a difference in the lives of those who use their services..  Harry and Meghan’s actions are not performative.  Every task and schedule has been carefully thought out and planned with strategies and timescales and resources required. Announcements are usually made when they are near completion. The podcasts coming up over the next couple of months or so, will shine a light on those out there working at community level and their hopes and plans for the future. The...

Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye

Wish Me Luck As You Wave Me Goodbye Episode: 96      Introduction This podcast and the SGUK Channel moving forward, relates to Harry & Meghan  focusing on their life and Foundation, as opposed to flying back and forth to the UK to be disrespected each time. Harry stated that they are moving forward not looking back. I publicised a few weeks ago that this channel will be doing the same. I am not going to devote large scale sections of my podcast making reference to the BRF in articles or podcasts. That only serves to keep them relevant. I don’t react to the regular nonsense publicised deliberately to get a reaction. They have followers to do that – I do not see our role to do the same. If their followers don’t do that then that is a BRF family problem not ours. H&M have no reason to play the game of ‘invite but no invite and then back to invite’ etc. That is...

Harry and Meghan – Challenges and Achievements Since Independence SGUK Episode 91  Introduction This channel is going to focus on the work of Harry and Meghan, and in the coming weeks, most podcasts won’t have any more than a footnote in terms of mention of the British Royal Family – if any at all. They are mentioned here and there in this podcast, because this is the first step on this element of the Sussex trajectory and the content of this podcast moving forward.  It is not for this channel to give the BRF relevance in Sussex activity.  There is a whole team of Royal Rota journalists that are more than the double the size of the Working Royals, who are employed to show that the BRF is relevant in todays society, whether that is the case or not.  That is their role, not mine.   What are the key areas for my podcast channel going forward? The Sussexes have been very successful, despite family interference...

Hate for Hire – UK Tabloid Journalists Legacy

Hate for Hire – UK Tabloid Journalists Legacy

Hate for Hire - UK Journalists Legacy Introduction This extract from an article in the Independent published in November 2015, still applies today.  Events since that article has provided more than enough evidence which clearly states there is a growing problem, relating to the various ways now that hate rhetoric is spread around the globe, and the targets of that rhetoric are suffering and some have lost their lives.  It links to aspects of Human Rights Legislation, and the framework around the Human Rights Act, needs to reflect the modern developments in terms of how to recognise and deal with perpetrators.   The role of the media in the rise of hate crime in the UK is unequivocal. For too long now the right-wing tabloid press in the UK has vilified minorities and vulnerable groups. This vilification is by no means a new phenomenon and has long existed in British Media. By  Sajda Mughal OBE 7/7 Survivor, Multi award winning community activist and counter extremism expert. 24/10/2017 12:29pm BST Unrecognisable...

British Royal Family and The Brexit Vote – The Same Business Model

BRF and Brexit Vote – Same Business Model  SGUK Ep 89   On 23rd June 2016, the UK Referendum on European Membership took place in the UK and Gibralter, commonly referred to the European Referendum or the Brexit Referendum. The vote resulted in 51.9% of the votes cast were I favour of leaving the EU. The referendum itself was not legally binding but the government of the day decided to implement the result – the wish of the people etc. In October 2016 tabloids began to publish articles about Meghan and Harry’s relationship and that it appeared that Harry was “besotted” with Meghan.  The tabloids claimed their information came from reliable sources – their usual MO.  The articles were far from complimentary, and it was evident that the tabloids in their usual sleazy style went digging for as much information as possible.  It was also clear that they had decided looking for salacious news would attract more attention than looking for positive news about...

Support and Uplift Charities v Swarm Charities With Toxicity in Comment Section

Support and Uplift Charities v Swarm Charities With Toxicity in Their Comment Sections SGUK Ep 63   Introduction This podcast looks at two distinct groups who support two of people, who are polar opposites in terms of a value base. One is focussed on undertaking projects with outcome focussed results, and including local people impacted by interventions in the planning of each project. The aim is to ensure that they are in a position to have input and to advise what has more chance of success due to environmental factors of various types, as opposed to creating additional damage to the infrastructure of an area or target audience for a future project. The other network relies on traditional support at any activity that they undertake.  There is no measurement of output or any real auditing in terms of benefits achieved and VFM.  Traditionally their support base has been there for decades and will continue to support the entity just for being there.  It has...

Entry in Societal Groups Based on Race and Privilege? Ep 62   Introduction “The social structure of Britain has been highly influenced by the concept of classes. The class system is prevalent in the society of the United Kingdom in the 21st century too. The different classes were formed depending on various factors such as education levels, income and the type of occupation. As per the norms of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, there were basically two social classes. One was called as the House of Lords, comprising of the hereditary upper class and another one was the House of Commons, representing everyone else in the British social hierarchy. We will first discuss the social system of former Britain and then the social system that is prevalent today in  modern Britain. The hierarchy that was prevalent at the time of formation of Great Britain is as follows: Royal Peer or Nobles Baronet Knight Gentry Yeomen Tradesmen Cottagers   Royal: This class belonged to the royal family and was the highest rank....

Not Even The King

NOT EVEN THE KING   Introduction This week’s podcast explores sibling relationships within a family business, and whether or not there is a difference in a family setting.  I have looked at a number of reference sources relating to the fall out when a sibling leaves the family business, and in doing so, explored and will make a number of personal observations, as to how the UK Royal Family responded to one person leaving the family not least because they did not regard or treat Meghan as a member of the family or as an employee, and if the truth be known, they used and continue to regard Meghan like bait that hunters and their dogs go after for sport.  No regard to the suffering, it is all a game in Royal circles.  Hunter and Prey mentality.  Seek and destroy the runaway slaves.  The fact that a blue blood prince chose his wife and family over his family, meant that he was regarded...

Reporting on The Sussexes in the UK – Misinformation & Disinformation Techniques   The article accompanying this weeks podcast looks at a selection of Sussex key dates in 2021 & 2022, focussing on the UK media practice of misinformation or disinformation about each one, with the intent to distract from actual newsworthy editorial that should be reported on.  We have plenty to look forward to in 2022 with many key events in the calendar.  Be prepared for the distraction tactics to go up a gear or two. UK RRs are currently having dry baths in the ashes that they claimed to wish for, ie the apparent popularity of the relics of UK Monarchy. We know that they only eat when they insert the name of Harry or Meghan into their fake headlines, as they continue to scrape the barrel of UK Royal activity in their effort to make fetch happen.  At least one RR was based in Montecito over the festive period,...
