Tagged with: corporate Two companies in Manchester have been closed down for using misleading sales practices to solicit sponsorship from businesses for anti-bullying books.The companies, Garrett Tate Partnership Ltd and Achieve Media Ltd, stated that the books were for distribution to schools in the locality of the sponsors. They also falsely claimed that they were operating for a charitable purpose and that the books had Local Education Authority support when no such support had either been sought or obtained.The misleading sales tactics were followed by persistent debt collection methods making a number of sponsors feel bullied into making payments for something they had not agreed to.The companies printed and distributed to schools only a small proportion of the books for which they had sold sponsorship. The High Court in Manchester found that each of the companies had been used as a personal ‘piggy bank’ by the director to such an extent that substantial funds had been removed to buy property in Bulgaria and by a number of ATM cash withdrawals.

New legacy fundraising consultancy launched

first_img Advertisement New legacy fundraising consultancy launched Legacy marketing specialist Ashley Rowthorn has set up Legacy Voice, a legacy fundraising consultancy, to help charities develop effective legacy conversations.Rowthorn is a member of the Remember a Charity Campaign Council. He has held senior legacy marketing positions at Alzheimer’s Society and most recently Royal Voluntary Service.The company offers charities support with strategy, messaging and capacity building through training and interim staff support. It will also develop an outsourced legacy campaign service including telemarketing campaigns with specially trained legacy fundraisers.Rowthorn explained why he set the company up. He said:“Insight shows that most people are willing to consider leaving a legacy to charity if they are asked in the right way, and just a 45 minute conversation can be enough to change someone’s attitudes to legacy giving. Yet legacies can be seen as a difficult subject to broach and many charities are cautious about upsetting their supporters, or unsure about where to start. My aim is to help more charities find their voice and make some noise about gifts in Wills – which is where my idea for Legacy Voice came from”.

Days of Future Past

first_img SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Commentary Days of Future Past By Gary Truitt – Dec 11, 2016 Facebook Twitter The State of Indiana has officially concluded its bicentennial celebration; and this column will be the last that looks at our agricultural heritage and how it has influenced us today. But rather than being just a look back, it will be a look forward to how one attribute of Hoosier farmers will shape our state and the food, fiber, and energy production of the entire world. That attribute is innovation.As Purdue historian Doug Hurt put it, “Indiana farmers have always been early adopters of new technology.” As farm work moved from hand power to horse power and later to mechanical power, Indiana farmers were quick to use these new methods of farming. This trend continued as chemical fertilizers and hybrid seeds came long. With the advent of the digital revolution and precision farming, this willingness to try new things continues.However, the Hoosier State also has a heritage of innovation.  From inventing new technology to implementing new technology, Indiana agriculture has been a leader. Having a resource like Purdue University has certainly been a catalyst behind this.  The fact that the newly merged Dow/DuPont company, which will be the largest U.S.-based seed and crop protection company in the world, will have its major research facility in Indiana is not a coincidence. As historian Hurt pointed out, much of Indiana’s success in manufacturing is because of its strong and innovative agriculture base. Indiana’s renewable fuels and growing food processing industries are an example on how agriculture is supporting industrial growth and expansion in the state.This spirit of innovation and collaboration between research, farming, and industry will need to continue into the future if we are to meet the environmental and food production challenges that will face us in the next 100 years. Farmers will have to produce more food on less land, with fewer inputs and changing weather patterns. The food, fuel, and pharmaceutical industries will have to develop new products and processes to meet changing consumer trends, government regulations, and new disease and resistance issues.Indiana is already laying the groundwork to meet these challenges with a life sciences initiative that brings together agriculture and pharmaceutical groups and with AgriNovus, an organization designed to foster invasion and commercialization of new food production technology. Now all of this may seem a bit pie in the sky given today’s reality of $3 corn and declining profits in almost every sector of farming. While this is a cyclical downturn that will be reversed in the coming years, it is vital that agriculture have a stable and steady economic base to provide growth opportunities for family farms.Our heritage of innovation is the key to our future. Agriculture is a sector that is always in a state of transition. Innovation has fueled our growth in the past and has positioned U.S. family farms in a way that allows them to compete today in a global market. Our past must also be our future. Innovation and adoption of new technology will keep Indiana and the U.S. on a path of growth and prosperity.By Gary Truitt Days of Future Past SHARE Previous articleOne Smart Way to Take Advantage of Land ValuesNext articleEPA Nominee Opposes RFS Gary Truittlast_img

Egypt creates hotlines for citizens to report fake news

first_img Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison to go further March 14, 2018 Egypt creates hotlines for citizens to report fake news Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff RSF_en Follow the news on Egypt News News Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts Two weeks ahead of Egypt’s presidential election, the authorities have set up telephone hotlines for the public to report “mendacious” information in the media. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) condemns this attempt to impose an even tighter gag on the country’s already muzzled press. February 1, 2021 Find out more February 6, 2021 Find out more The department of prosecutions announced on 12 March that hotlines have been created in every region for members of the public to call or leave text messages reporting fake news in either traditional or social media that endangers state security. “After arresting journalists, blocking online media and bringing traditional media outlets under its control, President Sisi’s regime is now inciting the public to be on the watch for supposedly fake news,” RSF said. “Two weeks before the presidential election, this new measure by the Egyptian authorities establishes a dangerous climate of denunciation and tightens the gag on media that have already been reduced to silence.” Just two weeks ago, Egypt’s chief prosecutor accused the “forces of evil” of “trying to undermine the security and safety of the nation through the broadcast and publication of lies and false news” in the media and on social networks. And he ordered all Egyptian prosecutors to scrutinize the media for “false news.” Egypt is ranked 161st out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index. Most of the independent media have been stifled, either by the blocking of their websites or by being brought under direct control. RSF’s website has been blocked within Egypt since August 2017.

Total FHFA Prevention Actions Edge Close to 4 Million Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago  Print This Post The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Collectively, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac sealed 18,034 foreclosure prevention actions back in October, bringing the combined total to 3,990,723 since the GSE conservatorships launched in September 2008, so says the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) October 2017 Foreclosure Prevention Report. By comparison, the number of foreclosure prevention actions amounted to 12,322 in September 2017. More than half of the prevention actions recorded in October—11,010, to be exact—were permanent loan modifications, inching up the total of permanent mods to 2,129,220 since September 2008. What’s more, 39 percent of mods completed in October were those with principal forbearance, the report says. Slightly eclipsing that number, extend-term only modifications comprised 44 percent of all loan modifications during that month.As for short sales and deeds-in-lieu of foreclosure finalized in October, that number was down a bit compared with September: 1,147 in October vs. 1,158 the previous month, according to the report. That being said, however, October saw 839 completed short sales compared with 828 the prior month. Some 308 deeds-in-lieu made it to completion in October, contrasting with 330 tallied in September.In terms of Fannie and Freddie’s mortgage performance, the serious delinquency rate stayed flat—0.95 percent—at the close of October, which means roughly 78 percent of borrowers who received a modification in both October and September were three or more months behind on their mortgage payment, the report states. In summary, the 60-plus-day delinquency rate leaped from 368,182 in September to 401,818 in October. When talking about the enterprises’ foreclosure numbers, third-party and foreclosure sales dipped from 4,905 in September to 4,776 in October. On the flip side, the number of foreclosure starts jumped from 12,830 in September to 13,601 in October. Completed foreclosure prevention actions grew from 11,164 in September to 16,887 in October, driven mostly by loan modifications and forbearance plans.
