The Corston Coalition was an independent fund raiser started to raise awareness of the ongoing problem of a rising number of women in prison throughout the United Kingdom. Since the start of the new millennium, the number of women imprisoned in the UK has increased by over a staggering 60%, which is worrying to say the least. The problem is that the majority of these women are spending six months or less behind bars, which is by many people, including us, a rather wasteful sentence as they are unlikely to to undergo any real change in that short amount of time.

Many of these women have a history of all sorts of traumas, such as mental health problems, violence, drug using and sex abuse. Spending time in prison seem to more often that not add to those traumas, affecting not only the women themselves but also the lives of their children. We therefore believe that we have to change this system. The main object of custodial sentences are, after all, not to punish, but to help the felons get back on the right path of life and once again make them fit for normal society.

We believe that, for less serious and non violent offences, women should be sentenced to more effective treatments than jail. By putting less serious felons in jail, we are bringing them together with people that they will most likely have a negative effect on their lives, thus risking having them end up in a worse place than before when they have served their time. Instead of sending them prison, we believe that there must be treatment centers for women that can help them rather than punish them, and that is what the Corston Independent Funding Coalition was all about. To look into the future of these women as well as their families.

Although the coalition might no longer be active, the struggle continues to make a brighter future for female offenders throughout the United Kingdom. It is clear that the the system, as it is today, is not working as it was intended to, and therefore a change has to be made in order to move our society forward. As it is now, we are regressing instead of making progress and therein lies the main problem.

In order to find out more on how you can help our society’s women, feel free to visit sites such as http://www.womeninprison.org.uk/  which also looks to the needs of women in prison. Keep in mind that serious, violent offenders should obviously be kept away from the public. We are only looking to help those who pose no threat to the public to get a better chance of having an effective treatment in order to once again be fit for our society. We hope that this article has inspired you to take action and learn more about what we can do to create a brighter future for these individuals.

Insurances – What are they all about?

Sunday, 25. August 2013 11:39 | Author:

Insurance is a word that you will hear a lot when you are a modern consumer. In modern society we buy a lot of different things to make our lives more enjoyable and sometimes these things can cost quite a lot of money. So when you buy a new car for example, what happens if you take that car out on the road and you are unfortunate enough to end up in a minor car accident which causes a lot of damage to your car? Well, you’d think you’d just have to pay up and repair the damages yourself, or even worse, buy a new car. This is when an insurance comes in handy.

What insurance does is that it provides safety to you when you buy expensive things. By paying a little extra on top of the price of the item you buy, the insurance company will cover any potential damage that will be done to it. So if you have bought a good car insurance and then end up in an accident, you won’t have to pay for the repairs yourself – the insurance company will do it for you. The same thing goes if you’ve bought a new mobile phone for example, and someone steals it from you. The insurance company will then cover your losses and give you a new phone.

But do we always need an insurance when you buy something new? Well, the answer is no, although an insurance is always good to have. You have to keep in mind that the insurance companies, just like all businesses, are trying to make money by selling you insurances. This means that they will always try to get you to sign an insurance, even though it might not be needed. Therefore, it’s important for you to make a calculation of whether it is worth it for you to sign it or not. Is the insurance expensive? Will the item you purchase run a high or a low risk of getting damaged or stolen? When you’ve made your mind up I recommend you to visit a personal economy portal such as EuroConsumer.

There you can find loads of information about different types of insurances, whether it be for your car or for a holiday that you plan to take. You will also find several different tools to use in order to compare different insurance companies. This way it is easy to get a good overview on what the different companies can offer you in terms of price. When looking for an insurance you will always want it to cover as much as possible for the lowest price possible, as there’s really no reason to pay more than you have to!

If you are thinking about buying insurance, make sure to use the tips I’ve gone through in this article in order to evaluate whether you will actually need one or not!

Online gambling – where to begin?

Tuesday, 25. June 2013 11:37 | Author:

When you are new to online gambling it’s easy to get a bit overwhelmed as there’s just so much to choose from out there. Since online gambling started entered the scene about ten years ago or so, it has grown a whole lot and you can now find pretty much anything on the internet. So when you first start out in this vast field, where should you begin? In my personal opinion, it’s best to start out with the stuff that is pretty easy to understand and straight forward.

A good place to start is to read up on different online gambling forms, and this can easily be done by visiting a gambling portal. I think that the easiest thing to start out with is casino gaming. You can then visit casino online portals such as casinoonline.re or Casino ZX in order to find out more about how the different games work. I think the best casino games to start out with are probably roulette and slot machines. These games are classics in the casino world, and by visiting the above mentioned website you can find detailed guides on how these games work, so that you can enter a casino later and already know how the games should be played. You will also find several reviews over some of the most well regarded casinos on the market today, and you can compare their offers so that you end up with a really good casino bonus as well. As you start getting more comfortable with the slot machines and roulette, you can start trying out more advanced casino games such as roulette, baccarat and video poker. You can find seceral good casinos reviewed at a website called Eurogambler!

Another popular gambling activity is bingo. Bingo wasn’t really that popular before you could find it on the internet. Most bingo players were retired old ladies who would visit bingo halls on the weekends, and the game didn’t really appeal to younger people. But as the game started to become available online, more and more people from all age groups and all corners of the world started to get interested in the game. A lot of it is because the internet and today’s technology have made the game much more fast paced, which is what the younger generation are used to.

Bingo is a very simple game to understand. You purchase numbered cards, and the goal is to get full rows of numbers. You fill out the numbers on your card as the caller draws the numbers in the game, and if you are the first one to complete a row on your card, you will be rewarded with a cash price. When I first started to become interested in online bingo I remember learning a lot from different online bingo portals, where you can find guides on how to play the games, and what all the rules are. A good bingo website to start playing at is Balloon Bingo, which is a website that is available in several languages, which also offers newcomers a free bonus for just signing up at the website. This means that you can start playing bingo without first having to make a deposit.

When you think of it, there are quite a large amount of people who are pretty dissatisfied with their line of work, and they pretty much see every working shift as a means to an end, that they have to do in order to pay their bills. But how come so many people accept this as a fact of life? I mean, if anyone gives their absolute full energy trying to achieve their dream job, they are probably more than likely to get it in the end. Of course, you will probably have to work hard to get there, but with the right will power you could do it.

I guess that most people are just a bit lazy, and they choose to accept themselves not being completely happy with the situation they are in. They start rationalizing and compare their lives to other people’s lies, and come to the conclusion that life isn’t so bad after all.
