Fundratios survey shows 77 per cent increase in major donor income

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 11 January 2008 | News Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising The new Fundratios survey has revealed a 77.4 per cent increase in major donor income for the charities that took part.Costs for major donor fundraising have decreased slightly over the period, which the Centre for Interfirm Comparison, which co-ordinates Fundratios for the Institute of Fundraising, puts down to significant investment in the past, which would also account for the growth in income.Twenty-eight of the UK’s largest charities, including the British Red Cross, Crisis, RNLI, Breakthrough Breast Cancer, Amnesty International UK and the PDSA took part in the survey this year. A spokeswoman for the Institute said that the number is not limited to 28, but depends on how many charities want to or have the resources to participate.All forms of fundraising showed an increase including special events (57.4%) and committed giving (12.6%). Legacies still account for the largest chunk of voluntary income at over 40 per cent.The Institute says that Fundratios is ‘designed to help all charities both large and small to fundraise more effectively by producing a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of fundraising’.The Institute’s director of policy and campaigns Megan Pacey said “This benchmarking exercise continues to suggest that the key to successful fundraising lies in nurturing loyal supporters and converting them to regular donors. There is evidence for this in the continued growth in committed giving, the significant role that legacy income plays, and the re-emergence of local fundraising.”www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk/fundratios Fundratios survey shows 77 per cent increase in major donor income  34 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Ag Industry Divided over Future of RFS

first_img Facebook Twitter The Renewable Fuel Standard, a 2005 provision of the Energy Policy Act, sets targets and timetables for certain biofuels to be added to the nation’s transportation fuel supply. It was expanded under the Energy Independence and Security Act two years later, setting requirements that 16.55 billion gallons of biofuels be produced in 2013 and 36 billion gallons by 2022. Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Ag Industry Divided over Future of RFS SHARE Chris Hurt“The RFS is one of the most important laws ever written that impacts agriculture,” is what Purdue AG Economist Dr. Chris Hurt told a House subcommittee on Wednesday. The House Energy and Commerce Committee, Subcommittee on Energy and Power, hearing was entitled “Overview of the Renewable Fuel Standard: Stakeholder Perspectives.”  Hurt testified the RFS mandate has led to more corn acres being planted, along with an increase in feed and food prices.  “This law has had some pretty large impacts on the demand for grains,” Hurt said. “In this case, it was a very rapid increase in demand mandated by law.” Ethanol industry groups disputed Hurt’s assertions. Tom Buis, CEO of Growth Energy, said in a released statement: “A critical fact that was absent from today’s testimony is that only three percent of the world’s grain supply is used in the production of ethanol. Furthermore, the true culprits behind rising food prices are the oil companies. A recent study by the World Bank outlined how crude oil prices are responsible for 50 percent of the increase in food prices since 2004.” By Gary Truitt – Jul 24, 2013 Previous articleEnvironmental Working Group: Cooking the Books for Big OilNext article10,400 acres in Indiana offered under Conservation Reserve Program Gary Truitt National Corn Growers Association President Pam Johnson spoke on the impact of the Renewable Fuel Standard on the agricultural sector. “The Renewable Fuel Standard is doing exactly what it was intended to do,” Johnson said during her testimony.  “It has positively impacted the agriculture sector by creating jobs and promoting rural development, reducing greenhouse gases, and allowing our nation to grow our energy at home.” Johnson stated the ethanol industry has created opportunity in rural America allowing her two sons and a growing number of young farmers to be able to return to the farm after college.  She also pointed to benefits to rural communities because of the RFS.  Her community in rural Iowa has been able to build a new fire station, remodel the hospital, and hire additional teachers because of the economic activity created by the local ethanol industry. Ag Industry Divided over Future of RFS On Tuesday, House Energy Committee Chair Fred Upton said the current system can’t stand and expressed hope that a discussion would start that considers a host of potential modifications and updates to the RFS. Upton said the end goal would be a system that works best for the American people. It was reported Monday that Upton will direct his staff to start drafting reform legislation over the August recess. Reportedly, Senate Democrats are looking at the RFS as well. At the same time, Fuels America is running a new advertising campaign in defense of the RFS. The ads say the RFS allows the US to have control over its energy future. The ad campaign, which is targeted to policy makers in the nation’s capital, also points out that diversifying fuel sources to include more renewable fuel will help increase U.S. economic and national security and ensure a healthier environment. Oil and livestock groups want Congress to scrap the RFS, but Neil McKinstray, head of the ethanol division of the Andersons, told HAT that the RFS may need to be modified but not done away with, “The RFS as it stands today has enough flexibility to allow the EPA to manage the situation.”  Dr. Hurt said the slower than anticipated development of cellulosic ethanol means the mandates in the RFS will not be able to be met. McKinstray says the future should not be predicted from the past as the ethanol industry is making advancements every day, “We are using new technological advancements which allows use of less water and less energy to make ethanol, and we are even using different parts of the corn plant.” Ag Industry Divided over Future of RFSlast_img read more

We mustn’t abandon two Tunisian journalists missing in Libya!

first_img Reporters Without Borders (RSF) supports the call by the families of Sofiane Chourabi and Nadhir Ktari, two Tunisian TV journalists missing in Libya, for a demonstration tomorrow outside the president’s office in Tunis to press the authorities to accept that they have a duty to intercede. February 1, 2016 – Updated on March 8, 2016 We mustn’t abandon two Tunisian journalists missing in Libya! Follow the news on Tunisia RSF_en There has been no information about the fate of Chourabi and Ktari in the 17 months since their disappearance in eastern Libya on 8 September 2014, while on assignment for Tunisia’s First TV.Tunisia’s politicians have shown no interest in the case and the families feel abandoned. They have called for the demonstration because, they say, they do not want their children to be forgotten.“We cannot give up because of the lack of information about Chourabi and Ktari, quite the reverse,” said Yasmine Kacha, the head of the RSF’s North Africa desk. “We must step up our campaigning because only constant pressure by public opinion at the national and international will be capable of persuading the Tunisian authorities not to abandon the two journalists and their families.”On 7 September, then foreign minister Taieb Baccouche made an optimistic statement on Jawhara FM, suggesting there were grounds for thinking the two journalists were still alive, but since then the Tunisian authorities have not been able to produce any evidence to support this.And there has been no sign of the mixed commission that was supposed to shed light on their fate, although the president’s office agreed to the creation of such a commission at the suggestion of civil society groups.Tunisia is ranked 126th out of 180 countries in the Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

It is alleged that he has violated the conditions of Visa and thus committed the offence under Sections 14(a), 14(b) & 14(c) of FA Act, 1946.After being arrested the accused sought bail from the trial Court, which on June 12, allowed his bail application but imposed a condition that “The accused shall be kept in a nearby detention center or if not available shall be kept in detention centre at Bangalore till disposal of this case.”The petitioner sought to relax the said condition before the sessions court but his plea was rejected. Following which he approached the high court.Advocate Syed Talha Hashmi appearing for the accused argued that the condition imposed by the trial court is a harsh one which curtails the life of and liberty of the petitioner as envisaged in Article 21 of the Constitution of India. Even though the petitioner is granted bail and ordered to be set at liberty on bail pending the trial, the imposition of the condition to keep him in the detention Center is virtually amounting to negating the benefit of bail granted to the petitioner.The prosecution opposed the petition stating that that trial Court has imposed the condition No.6 as per the Guidelines issued by this court in the case of Babul Khan & Ors vs. State of Karnataka & another (Crl.P.No.6578/2019, decided on: 19.05.2020) and therefore there is no error committed by the learned Magistrate in imposition condition impugned herein.The court on going through the guidelines said :”Detention Centers are not to be construed as putting them into a Jail/Prison. The object behind such establishment of Detention Center and placing foreign nationals against whom cases have been registered under the FA Act, is just to restrict their movements across India and should not travel according to their whims and fancies and remain untraceable or absconded or flee away from justice. Therefore, under these facts and circumstances imposition of such a condition placing the petitioner in detention center cannot be said to be harsh or even illegal and unjustifiable and it is not violative of Article 21 of the Constitution of India.”It added that “The State has every power to make such restrictions as vested under the law keeping the sovereignty of the country.”The bench referring to provisions of the Foreigners Act, said: “Imposition of such condition is also in the interest of protecting sovereignty of the country. Sovereignty of the country is not only to be preached, but it is also an obligation of practice by every authority. The imposition of the condition of putting the petitioner into detention centre is with the object that he/she should not abscond or flee away from justice and leave the country on the pretest of enlarging on bail. Therefore, such a condition is imposed and ordering for putting the petitioner in a detention centre cannot be termed as negating the bail.”It added”Ordering for placing the petitioner in a detention centre till completion of trial and thereafter till deporting to his country is perfectly within the ambit of law as enshrined in the FA Act and also as per the dictum of this Court in Babul Khan’s case (supra).The court concluded by saying “Therefore, the order of the learned Magistrate imposing condition No.6 cannot be said to be unreasonable, illegal or unjustified. Therefore, the petition filed is found to be devoid of merits and thus is liable to be dismissed. Accordingly, the present petition is Dismissed.”Toichubek Uulu Bakytbek And The State of KarnatakaCriminal Petition No: 200595/2020Date of Order: September 4, 2020Coram: Justice Hanchate Sanjeevkumar.Appearance:Advocate Syed Talha Hashmi, for petitioner.Advocate Prakash Yeli for respondents..Click Here To Download Order[Read Order] Next Storylast_img read more

Two men indicted for conspiring to injure officers including Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick

first_imgKuzma/iStockBy EMILY SHAPIRO and ALEXANDER MALLIN, ABC News(WASHINGTON) — The two men arrested and charged last week for allegedly assaulting Capitol Police officer Brian Sicknick and other officers with bear spray during the Jan. 6 riot now have been indicted by a grand jury on 10 counts.Charges against Julian Khater of Pennsylvania and George Tanios of West Virginia include conspiracy to injure officers, assault on federal officers and civil disorder.The indictment alleges Khater and Tanios “planned and discussed the timing of when to use the chemical spray,” which “did cause significant bodily injury.”An affidavit said three officers, including Sicknick, “were incapacitated and unable to perform their duties for at least 20 minutes or longer while they recovered from the spray.” One officer said the spray was “as strong as, if not stronger than, any version of the pepper spray they had been exposed to during their training as law enforcement officers.”Last week, Khater and Tanios both were ordered to remain in government custody pending further judicial proceedings. No date has been set for their next court appearance in Washington, D.C., where they’ll be arraigned on the new grand jury indictment.Sicknick was hospitalized after the Capitol riot and died on Jan. 7. Authorities still are working to determine whether the assault was a direct cause of Sicknick’s death.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Housing market: gap between average asking prices and final sale price widens

first_imgThe gap between average asking price and final sale price is widening in almost every UK city, according to the latest Zoopla house price report, rising from 3.3% in 2018 to 3.9% during the first quarter of this year.Six cities recorded average discounts above the current national figure (see graph below) including Aberdeen, London, Newcastle, Liverpool and Oxford and in only two cities are homes selling for more than their asking price; Glasgow and Edinburgh. Zoopla says properties in Edinburgh sell for 6.3% more than their listing price, while stock in Glasgow shifts for 5.2% above asking price.Richard Donnell (left), Research and Insight Director at Zoopla, says, “Sellers are having to accept slightly higher discounts to the asking price in order to achieve a sale. This is a natural response to weaker market conditions and buyers are starting to negotiate harder on price. The increase between asking and selling price is off a low base. Correctly priced homes continue to sell within a reasonable period and setting the asking price at the right level remains a key decision to agree with your agent.”Ian Stewart, Chief Economist at Deloitte UK (below), says, “To outsiders the British can seem slightly obsessed with house prices. Yet it is an asset that matters. Two-thirds of UK households are owner-occupiers and 35% of household wealth is tied up in property.“The value of that wealth has risen by almost 50% in the last ten years.
