Giving Campaign outlines potential for planned giving products in the UK

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Giving Campaign outlines potential for planned giving products in the UK The Giving Campaign has published research by Henley Management College into the opportunities for the development of planned giving products in the UK.A staple element of philanthropy in the USA, planned giving products are not as developed in the UK. The Giving Campaign, which aims to encourage a culture of giving and to increase the amount of money given to UK charities, has therefore commissioned research into its potential in the UK. Advertisement Amanda Delew, Director of The Giving Campaign, said: “Planned giving could have a major impact on charity fundraising. Many people already give regularly through payroll deductions or by direct debit and some wealthier donors have their own charitable trusts. But the UKremains a long way behind the USA, where vehicles that combine key elements of charitable donations and investments are very popular, helping planned giving to account for as much as 40% of voluntary sector income. “The report we are publishing today suggests there could be a real demand for attractive planned giving products, UK style. For planned giving to develop here, creative people from the financial and charity sectors need to come together, as they are beginning to do, to design and promote theproducts that meet this need.”Speaking at the launch of the report, Professor Adrian Sargeant of Henley’s Centre for Voluntary Sector Management said that planned giving offered a “win-win-win” solution. Donors would be able to give tax-effectively, charities would receive assured income streams, and financial services firms could expand their markets and strengthen their brands.You can download the report from the Giving Campaign.

Report Shows In-Fighting Among Animal Rights Groups

first_img SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Report Shows In-Fighting Among Animal Rights Groups By Gary Truitt – Sep 4, 2014 Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter Previous articleClosing CommentsNext articleHoosier Crops Stacking Up Nicely Compared to Other I States Gary Truitt SHARE Kay Johnson SmithThe Animal Agriculture Alliance has released a report that chronicles observations from the 33rd annual Animal Rights National Conference presented by The Farm Animal Rights Movement (FARM) and the Humane Society of the United States’ Taking Action for Animals (TAFA) conference. Collectively, more than 2,500 people, many from foreign countries including; Brazil, Canada, India and Europe, attended the conferences. “It is so important that we be present at events like this in order to get a first-hand account of what activist groups are planning and understand the state of the animal rights movement,” said Animal Agriculture Alliance President and CEO Kay Johnson Smith. “If we can glean what demographics the activist groups are targeting, we can more effectively counter their misleading campaigns against animal agriculture.”   Though all of the speakers noted the “great successes” that have been achieved by the movement for animals raised on farms, in zoos and aquariums, and utilized in medical research—numerous speakers also discussed discrepancies in the movement; noting in-fighting among group leaders and dissention in the ranks.    Specifically, FARM founder Alex Hershaft noted that People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ (PETA) Ingrid Newkirk had not attended the annual animal rights conference in more than 13 years—despite repeated invitations for her to speak. Hershaft and other speakers also expressed frustration in how the movement lacked coordination. Said Hershaft, “If our opponents knew how little we communicated, they would be amazed.”   Besides Hershaft, other notable activist presenters from one or both conferences included Wayne Pacelle (Humane Society of the United States), Nathan Runkle (Mercy for Animals), Bruce Friedrich (Farm Sanctuary), and Will Potter (Author, Green is the New Red and Drone Kickstarter Campaign founder).   The reports, which collectively include summaries from over fifty conference plenary and “breakout sessions,” also summarize key quotes from notable speakers and detail upcoming campaigns and efforts.   All groups, including the Humane Society of the United States, Mercy for Animals and Farm Sanctuary spoke passionately about promoting veganism using every available channel, using social media to fundraise for the movement, targeting restaurants and retailers with messages about “factory farming” and promoting Meatless Mondays as an incremental tool towards converting consumers to veganism.   “These reports really capture the goals and sentiments held by the leading animal rights organizations,” said Johnson Smith. “I hope our members utilize these reports as tools to communicate with stakeholders about the true agenda of the activist organizations and recognize the need to actively engage in conversations along the food chain about agriculture’s commitment to animal care.”   Both the 2014 Taking Action for Animals Report and the 2014 Animal Rights Conference Report, which compile personal accounts of speaker presentations and general observations, are available to Alliance members on the Alliance website.   Report Shows In-Fighting Among Animal Rights Groupslast_img read more

For this reason, we call on you as a matter of urgency to intervene with Vice-President Afqurac and get him to reverse these actions.”Issued after a cabinet meeting, the 5 May decree said that: “Articles recently published in Shacab caused a crisis that could have led to violence. The government of Puntland was therefore obliged to take constitutional decisions to safeguard the country’s unity and security, and to temporarily suspend the newspaper.”Shacab, which means “Voice of the People,” has been subject to harassment since last month. In the week beginning April 20, the Puntland security forces arrested two of its journalists, Abdirashid Qoransey and editor Abdi Farah Nur. They were detained, tried on charges of “inciting violence and insulting the president” in two articles criticizing the government, and were finally acquitted a few days later. The premises of the newspaper were also damaged.The pressure has not let up since their acquittal. Government and information ministry representatives began visiting the newspaper on 28 April about licence permits and taxes that Shacab has allegedly not paid, threatening during these visits to close the newspaper.

Blasphemy laws – European Parliament asked to be consistent about blasphemy

first_imgNews News News May 21, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Blasphemy laws – European Parliament asked to be consistent about blasphemy In a resolution adopted yesterday in Strasbourg, the European Parliament called on Pakistan to carry out a “thoroughgoing review” of its blasphemy laws because they were “open to misuse.” It also condemned the “contradiction” between the Pakistani government’s commitment to religious freedom and its “leading role” in the Organisation of the Islamic Conference in seeking the UN’s condemnation of “defamation of religion.”“We welcome this initiative by the European Parliament and the legitimacy of its requests to Pakistan,” Reporters Without Borders said. “But we draw the Parliament’s attention to the need to review European legislation on this subject at the same time. It is not very coherent to ask another country to carry out a thorough review of its blasphemy laws while continuing to accept the existence of a law in Ireland that criminalises blasphemy and makes it punishable by fines of up to 25,000 euros.“We already asked the European Council on 4 January to contact the Irish authorities about this, unfortunately with little success. Other European countries (including Portugal, Denmark and Poland) still have similar laws providing for jail sentences and large fines. Even if they are rarely applied, their existence constitutes a restriction on freedom of expression that is incompatible with European democratic standards. It is vital that MEPs press with the same firmness for European legislation to be rid of these laws for good. The Parliament’s resolutions on this subject would then carry much more weight.”Reporters Without Borders added: “At a time when Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks can no longer give a conference on the possibilities of making fun of religions without risking physical violence and Molotov cocktail attacks on his home, we think it is important for the European Parliament to remind member states that while article 10 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights guarantees freedom of worship, article 11 guarantees the ability to criticise religions and, by extension, blasphemy.” RSF_en Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia Europe – Central Asia Receive email alerts Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says June 7, 2021 Find out morecenter_img to go further Help by sharing this information News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Europe – Central Asia June 8, 2021 Find out more June 4, 2021 Find out more “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says Organisation last_img read more

Where is Mikhailo Kolomiets?

first_img Receive email alerts November 6, 2002 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Where is Mikhailo Kolomiets? RSF_en Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authority Follow the news on Ukraine News News Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Organisation Reporters Without Borders today voiced its concern about the disappearance of Ukrainian journalist Mikhailo Kolomiets, director of the Ukrainski Novyny news agency, who has been missing since 21 October. The organisation wrote to Interior Minister Yuri Smirnov asking him to do everything possible to locate Kolomiets and, without jumping to conclusions, it suggested that police should not at this stage rule the possibility of his disappearance being linked to his work as a journalist.Kolomiets’ disappearance was reported by Ukrainski Novyny on 28 October. The news agency said it could be related to Kolomiets’ work and to the fact that the agency’s reporting is sometimes critical of the Ukrainian government.According to the police, Kolomiets travelled from Ukraine to Belarus on 22 October. On the evening of 28 October, he made telephone calls to his colleagues, family and a friend in which, according to the police, he said he had left Ukraine with the intention of committing suicide.The testimonies obtained by Reporters Without Borders are contradictory on several points. His family said that, in his phone calls, he did not explicitly say he wanted to kill himself. They said he does not suffer from depression and had no personal reason for wanting to commit suicide. His mother also denied police claims that she had been in “regular” contact with her son since his disappearance.Aged 44, Kolomiets has been a journalist since 1991. He created the Ukrainski Novyny news agency in 1997 and owns 50 per cent of its shares. The rest are owned by the Agency for Humanitarian Technologies, run by Valeriy Khoroshkovskiy, who works closely with President Kuchma. to go furthercenter_img March 26, 2021 Find out more February 26, 2021 Find out more UkraineEurope – Central Asia UkraineEurope – Central Asia Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media Help by sharing this information News News September 7, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

In one instance he lodged expenses claims with two different bodies, his council and Udaras na Gaeltachta, for attending a conference.As a result he received over €1,000 in additional expenses he was not entitled to. Mr Doherty claimed the breaches were “unintentional” and “inadvertent”.
