first_imgScott Williams had a very effective game against the Pumas. He was the games’ joint highest for clean-breaks (two) and beat more defenders than any player on the field (five). His defence was rock solid as ever. But whilst his individual performance was noteworthy,  it was his team contribution that made such a difference. Williams’ ability to throw an accurate 15 yard pass off both hands added a new dimension to Wales’ backline and Williams executed 12 passes compared to his opposite number who threw just two.Together with Dan Biggar, who also distributed accurately, Williams regularly fed the ball into the wider channels. The accuracy and speed of passing meant that Cory Allen, George North, Leigh Halfpenny and Liam Williams all managed to carry the ball more than 57m each. Warren Gatland has been looking for ‘Plan B’ for a while – he may need to rename it ‘Plan SW’.Smacked: Wales only missed three tackles in the second halfMissed tackles or too keen on the kick charge?Wales missed 12 tackles in the first half against Argentina – they only missed eight in 80 minutes against the Boks.However, it was clear that most of the misses were as a result of being overly keen to charge down clearance kicks. Rushing up too quickly made Wales susceptible to a side step, as they found to their cost on numerous occasions in the first half. As a rule Argentina kick a lot of ball from the ten channel and it was obvious that Wales were trying to pressurise their clearances. In fact, most of the missed tackles came from front row forwards who occupy the first and second guard positions in Wales’ ruck defence and who regularly find themselves having to pressurise clearance kicks. Nevertheless, the overly aggressive kick charge was rectified at half-time and Wales only missed three tackles in the second half.Leigh Halfpenny can kick in any conditions LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Leigh Halfpenny is a tremendous goal kicker; arguably the best that Wales has had. However, Saturday’s display was exemplary when you consider the condition of the surface at the Millennium Stadium. It was like playing on humus covered in watercress. Yet Halfpenny still only missed one goal kick. He was eight from nine at 89%. That is a remarkable return when you consider how unstable his footing would have been.The WRU should seriously consider laying a 4G surface in the Millennium Stadium. Either that or boot manufacturers are going to have to manufacture ‘rugby crampons’ specifically designed for the Welsh squad. Skipping by: George North and several team-mates found proceedings fairly easy during their game against ArgentinaBy Paul Williams12 months is a long timeWales beat Argentina by 40 – 6 in an enormously comfortable victory – a pleasant contrast to last year’s fixture which the Pumas won by 26 – 12. The result was even more impressive when you consider that Wales had new combinations in the front row and centres, plus backrow and back-three combinations with limited game time.Surprisingly, Wales’ possession and territory stats were meagre when compared to the Springbok encounter – Wales secured 44% possession and 46% territory. However the use of that possession was, at times, a delight to watch. Mike Phillips regularly ran a direct ‘arc’ across the tackle line, sucking in defenders and leaving gaps into which Wales consistently sent their principal ball carriers. Toby Faletau, Scott Williams and George North were the main beneficiaries of Phillips’ running lines and in fact North added at least another minute to his show reel.Dan Biggar’s passing and tactical kicking was as calm and assured as Cory Allen’s debut. But the positives weren’t limited to the backline. The lineout ran at 92.9% and the scrum was stable, even with two debutant tight-heads. Playing both Sam Warburton and Justin Tipuric increased Wales’ ruck speed and the ruck defence was tight  even when down to 14 men. There will be those who believe that the Pumas have regressed over the past 12 months and they may be right. However, this is also the same Pumas team that remained largely competitive in this year’s Rugby Championship. Gatland will be pleased.Hibbard. Immense.The Montana Mountain goats of North America, when fighting, crash heads with such force that it causes their hooves to fall off – even they’d think twice before running into Richard Hibbard.MOTM: Faletau won the bubbly, but Hibbard ran him closeHis performance against Argentina was outstanding and more than justified his inclusion in the IRPA’s shortlist for team of the year. Not once did Hibbard go backwards in the tackle, even when triple tackled. But whilst his carrying was abrasive it was his tackling that caught the eye. It literally caught the eye of the Argentinian outside half, who having spotted Hibbard in his channel fumbled a pass which led directly to Mike Phillip’s try. It’s a shame that modern hookers are replaced after 55-60 minutes as it limits their ability to win man of the match awards. If Hibbard had made it past 70 minutes he would have run Toby Faletau very close for the bottle of bubbly.Scott Williams opens the backline Argentina’s Pablo Matera (L) is tackled by Wales’ Toby Faletau during the international rugby union test match between Wales and Argentina at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, south Wales on November 16, 2013.

Full extent of actions not knownFollowing a search of his office in Dagenham he was arrested in November 2010. The police discovered that he had been contacting charities and offering his services to recruit teams to collect donations at railway stations. He then secured authorised positions for collectors from various train operation companies.The charities however were not aware of what he was doing in their name.British Transport Police say that “the full financial extent of Bardy’s actions are not known” but officers did find evidence for 81 incidents where collections on behalf of two charities took place or were planned to take place.Although some of these collections may have been legitimate, Bardy admitted some money collected had been taken for himself. “A manipulator, and a dishonest man”Judge Henry Blacksell told Bardy: “You saw an opportunity to make money from charities which you manipulated to your advantage. You made multiple fraudulent, deceiving transactions over the years. It was a breach of trust and a representation which causes people to suffer.“You are a manipulator, and a dishonest man.”Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board, congratulated the British Transport Police for securing the successful prosecution. He said: “Although any instances of charity fraud are incredibly rare, they are deeply concerning. Such acts not only deceive supporters and divert much-needed funds from good causes, but carry an even greater cost of damaging public trust and future charitable giving.”www.btp.police.ukPhoto: copyright British Transport Police Howard Lake | 5 February 2013 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: Fundraising Standards Board Individual giving Law / policycenter_img A man who stole commuters’ donations to charity across eight counties has been sentenced to 13 months in prison.Roy Bardy, 48, of Dagenham, Essex, was sentenced yesterday at Blackfriars Crown Court after previously pleading guilty to two counts of fraud by false representation.For a period of three years Bardy recruited volunteers and employees to stand at rail stations across the country to collect money for many local charities.

first_img Strategy, communications, and fundraising are the functional areas sector leaders most need to focus on as we enter the new decade, according to the 2019 data aggregated by the Charity Sector Data Store.The Charity Sector Data Store aggregates the data collected through the Charity Excellence Framework online toolkit, which supports charities with their governance and compliance by providing the means to assess and manage performance across key areas, as well as work out where to make improvements, tracking more than 20 key metrics.The Charity Excellence Framework launched with a pilot in 2018 and will begin scaling this year, with the Charity Sector Data Store already holding over 1500 completed questionnaires offering insights into areas where more focus could be beneficial.According to creator Ian McLintock, the 2019 results are broadly comparable to the 2018 data, and suggest that while those using the system report the weakest functional areas as strategy, communications and fundraising, charities are performing better in the areas of compliance and keeping people safe from harm, and at managing finance.The data highlights that while lack of resources is a major issue, there are a number of areas where more can be done to build resilience without more funding: such as responding proactively to relevant issues in the outside world, thinking about and evaluating alternative options to increase impact and ensuring that plans and targets are realistic and cost effective.Under governance, the weakest areas overall were organisational purpose and board effectiveness, suggesting that boards should review their strategy and effectiveness if they haven’t already done so recently.In terms of keeping people safe from harm, while the data suggests that charities are performing well here overall, it also suggests that many boards lack effective oversight of safety issues and whistleblowing.Under diversity, encouraging under-represented groups when recruiting board members comes in as the lowest scored metric.Under fundraising, the data identifies one key opportunity to be investing in developing fundraising skills and understanding, both within fundraising teams as well as more widely and including at board level. The data also shows opportunities in how charities identify and engage lapsed, existing and potential future funders, and in assessing the merits of using increasingly accessible technology options, such as those in communications above.The lowest rated metric here was having a CRM system that is easy to use, provides the functionality and reporting to exploit data well, and which is also cost effective, while having a sufficiently large and engaged pipeline of funders was 8th bottom.Overall however, communications was the lowest rated area, with 33 of 43 indicators at amber, and many charities still missing out on opportunities such as contactless, text donations and the Google Ads Grant, as well as basic analytics.  The lowest rated communications metric however was having clear, powerful messages that engage audiences, with having realistic outcomes and clarity on what these are both identified as opportunities to achieve more.This year will see a number of new upgrades for the Charity Excellence Framework, including a micro charity module, making the resource base fully searchable and open to anyone, and the launch of social franchising. This will enable groups of charities, as well as large multi-site charities, to access the core system, to create and control new functionality.  446 total views,  2 views today Strategy, communications & fundraising revealed as key areas requiring sector leader focus Advertisement  447 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Tagged with: compliance data governance Technologycenter_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

first_imgDuring the week of Dec. 7, the South African government changed its minister of finance twice, bringing South Africa’s economic crisis into focus.First, the African National Congress government in South Africa under President Jacob Zuma summarily dismissed Nhanhla Nene, appointing David van Rooyen in his place. Bond-rating agencies quickly lowered the value of South Africa’s credit worthiness to a level just above junk status. Protests from opponents and allies and a 15 percent drop in the rand’s value to 16 against the U.S. dollar forced Zuma to replace Rooyen with Pravin Gordhan, who had served as finance minister from 2009-14.This decision comes amid a worsening economic crisis in the country. Africa’s most industrialized state has seen a sharp rise in unemployment, the decline of the rand, reduced energy generation and water shortages. The country has narrowly missed entering a recession with less than 1 percent growth.The South African economic crisis is a reflection of the downturn among numerous emerging states which experienced substantial growth over the last decade. A decline in commodity prices, including oil and other natural resources, illustrates the continuing dependency on the existing capitalist dominance of the world economic system. What must be recognized is the need for a reorientation from a neoliberal economic policy to one that is focused on the needs of the working people, farmers, youth and ­jobless.After Zuma said Gordhan would return as finance minister, the rand rose around 5 percent to 15.10 against the dollar on Dec. 14. Gordhan’s subsequent statements quoted in the international media for the benefit of the global centers of finance capital were designed to rebuild confidence in the ability of South Africa to halt the decline in the economy.Political response in and outside the ruling allianceElements in the Congress of South African Trade Unions, which is commemorating its 30th anniversary in 2015, criticized the decision to terminate finance minister Nene. COSATU, a key ally of the ANC, held its 12th National Congress recently, at which it called for reforms in the national economy.In a statement issued from its offices in Braamfontein on Dec. 10, the COSATU federation said, “The unemployment rate is going through the roof and the blight of capital flight is back in full swing. To maneuver this economic minefield and smooth transition, we needed the stability, continuity and the experience that Cde Nhlanhla Nene provided. COSATU also feels that what is wrong with treasury is that the mandarins and technocrats have too much power and they are neoliberal hardliners.”South Africa’s ruling ANC party in its Dec. 14 statement about the finance ministry said, “The ANC further appreciates the explanation provided by President Zuma on the reasons behind the initial reshuffle of Comrade Nhlanhla Nene, who is the country’s nominee to serve as head of the African Regional Center of the New Development Bank/BRICS Bank. The decision underscores the importance of BRICS as a game changer in the world economy. … The ANC commends the public for vocal engagement [with the] government on the appointment of the Minister of Finance.”The third key ally in the tripartite ruling alliance, the South African Communist Party, spoke favorably about the government’s response to the widespread criticism over the changes in the ministry. A statement issued by the SACP on Dec. 14 noted, “This is very important, and the SACP welcomes it.”Opposition parties, including the largest, the Democratic Alliance, used the reshuffling and the decline in the currency value and bond ratings as a political wedge against the Zuma government. Nonetheless, no real alternative economic policies are being advanced by these organizations, which occupy the parliament in Cape Town along with the ANC.Job losses to escalate class struggleThe appointment of successive finance ministers has been met with trepidation by the corporate interests. Meanwhile the Anglo American mining conglomerate announced it would eliminate 85,000 jobs in a major restructuring plan. These developments represent an ongoing process of job losses in the extractive industry, a major source of employment and foreign exchange earnings in South African and regional economies.Anglo American’s announcement in preparation for shedding some of its assets and downsizing its workforce indicates that similar actions could follow in other coal and gold companies during 2016.These decisions will intensify the already escalating class struggle in South Africa. For the last four years, there have been numerous strikes in the mining industry, which have impacted the financial crisis emanating from the unresolved necessity for redistribution of wealth during the postapartheid period.Mamokgheti Molopyane, a labor relations and mining analyst, predicts that the long-term effects of Anglo American’s restructuring plans in the platinum, coal and gold sectors will become clearer during 2016.“Anglo is not the only company that announced possible job cuts,” said Molopyane. “The gold and coal sectors [will be impacted], so you can rest assured that next year it’s going to be a battle between the employers and the workers.” (Eyewitness News, Dec. 8)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more


first_imgHome News Feed Gibson County Corn May Average 50 bpa Facebook Twitter SHARE Gibson County Corn May Average 50 bpa Listen to the complete report with Brian Hirsch on the DuPont Pioneer agronomy page and in the audio section of the HAT Smartphone app. SHARE USDA officials from Washington will be touring fields in Indiana today, looking at drought-damaged crops.  Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services Undersecretary Michael Scuse will visit Allen and White Counties on Wednesday and Johnson County on Thursday. If they were to go further south, they would see a very desperate situation. HAT farmer field reporter Brian Hirsch, in Gibson County, says for many in his area the corn is a total loss, “On some of the poor ground yield will be a total zero.” Hirsh says, on some of the better ground, growers will get a  crop but with very poor yields, “On some of the better ground, I think I will get about 90 bpa.” He told HAT that the Gibson County average corn yield will be around 50 bpa. By Gary Truitt – Jul 17, 2012 Facebook Twitter There have been reports that some growers in Southern Indiana have decided to give up on this year’s crop and just disc it under. Hirsch says very few farmers in his area are giving up on the corn crop, “I think this is the exception rather than the rule. Most folks around here are going to stick it out and see what kind of yield they get.” In an attempt to get some kind of a crop, a few producers in Gibson County are planting double crop soybeans into wheat stubble right after some of the scattered showers that have move through the area.  Hirsch admits it is getting sort of late for this kind of move, but he said folks are getting desperate.

first_img News Organisation Reporters Without Borders calls for the immediately release of Arifur Rahman, a cartoonist with Aalpin, the daily newspaper Prothom Alo’s weekly satirical supplement. He was arrested at his Dhaka home on 17 September over a cartoon that was a play on the name Mohammed. The government’s press department said the cartoon “hurt religious sentiments.” All copies of the supplement were seized. Prothom Alo apologised and fired the supplement’s deputy editor.”The play on words had no intention of attacking the Prophet,” Reporters Without Borders said “It was a joke about a cultural custom. The government should not yield to pressure from extremist leaders who are trying to politicise the case. Rahman should not be made a scapegoat. He must be freed.”The cartoon appeared on page 6 of the 17 September issue. Entitled “Name,” it made harmless fun of the custom in Muslim countries of putting the name Mohammed in front of one’s given name. The drawing was accompanied by this dialogue:- Boy, what’s your name?- My name is Babu.- It is customary to put Mohammed in front of the name.- What is your father’s name?- Mohammed Abu.- What is that on your lap?- Mohammed cat.Religious leaders have called for the cartoonist to be severely punished and for Prothom Alo, one of the country’s leading dailies, to be closed. Copies of the newspaper have been burned outside one of the capital’s mosques.

United StatesAmericas Freedom of expressionViolence United StatesAmericas Freedom of expressionViolence US — RSF remains deeply concerned for journalists’ safety in run-up to historic election Organisation September 28, 2020 Find out more US – Ahead of Election Day, dozens of candidates have pledged to protect press freedom by signing RSF’s Press Freedom Pact US — RSF launches #PressFreedomPact ahead of November 2020 elections In the wake of a historic election, RSF calls on President-elect Biden to take an immediate stand to protect press freedom and the safety of journalists at home and abroad by supporting the Press Freedom Pact. Following four years of steady deterioration of the US’ press freedom record, hostility towards the media has never been worse in a US electoral context – and has resulted too often in real-life violence and aggression. To address these alarming trends, RSF called on candidates from all parties to affirm their commitment to protect press freedom; dozens have signed on so far.“The world will be closely watching President-elect Biden’s next steps, and we urge him to seize this opportunity to take a stand for press freedom. There has never been a more crucial time for strong leadership to address the extensive damage that has been done to the US’ press freedom record – starting by sending a clear signal that violence and aggression towards the media will no longer be tolerated, and taking steps to begin to restore safeguards for press freedom, which is vital to American democracy,” said RSF Secretary-General Christophe Deloire.After detailing extensive press freedom concerns during Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, when the results came in from the November 2016 elections, RSF called on him to respect press freedom in the presidency. Instead, he used the office to attack journalists, spread disinformation, and steadily erode the US’ position of international leadership on press freedom – which has served to weaken protections for press freedom globally.Trump’s hostile rhetoric towards the press – whom he has labelled as “enemies of the people” – contributed to an environment of real-life violence for journalists. In June 2018, a shooter opened fire on the Capital Gazette newsroom in Maryland, killing five people (including four journalists) and injuring two others. This year, journalists across the country faced extensive aggression and violence while covering Black Lives Matter protests. The U.S. Press Freedom Tracker – of which RSF is a partner – has tallied more than 880 aggressions towards the press in 2020 alone. At least 37 incidents were tracked against journalists while reporting on the elections.The United States is ranked 45th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.
