This summer the Globe Theatre embarked on what it describes as “its first tour in 400 years” with a production of ‘Romeo and Juliet’, assisted by motor company Ford.The company’s loan of two Ford Transit vans, a Transit minibus and a Ford Fiesta has helped the troupe of actors and crew of Romeo and Juliet transport themselves and the production set to a picturesque collection of castles, parks and gardens across Britain. The tour started from the Globe in June and ends with a performance at Lord’s Cricket Ground, on 2 September.The Globe’s relationship with Ford began before the Globe Theatre opened, with a gift which enabled the building of the theatre’s impressive Bankside Gates. Since then, Ford has sponsored individual theatre productions, including The Merchant of Venice (1998), The Comedy of Errors (1999) and The Tempest (2000).From 2001 until last year, the company supported Globe Education’s summer programme of curriculum-based and continuing education activities. 44 total views, 4 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Ford supports the Globe’s first tour in 400 years Advertisement 43 total views, 3 views today Howard Lake | 20 August 2007 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Tagged with: Funding recession Research / statistics Grant-making by trusts is a hidden “time bomb”New analysis of the impact of the recession on charity fundraising shows 41 percent of the top 300 charitable trusts saw a fall in the value of their grant-making in 2008 and, overall, their net asset value fell by 10 percent. This is likely to have a negative effect on grant-making this year.Professor Cathy Pharoah, Co-Director of the ESRC Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy at Cass Business School, London, analysed the annual financial data of the UK’s largest fundraising charities, the major charitable trust donors and major corporate donors who support them, for Charity Market Monitor 2009. This report shows that a significant reduction in donations underlies ‘surface’ figures which might indicate growth in fundraising income.

Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Value of charitable trusts falls 10 percent due to recession Her results indicate grant-making by the major charitable trusts has been maintained as a result of gifts and endowments received over the last decade, but this is a hidden ‘time bomb’. A new wave of wealthy donors who have recently been giving to charitable trusts through major ‘one-off’ capital gifts and endowments out of wealth acquired during the 1980s and 1990s may not be sustained in post-recession years. Some of the new giving will help to sustain grant-making for the foreseeable future, however, this does not reflect trust finances across the board, where the effects of the recession are more apparent.Professor Pharoah comments: “Such falls reflect declines in the real value of the net assets and investments amongst the top 300 trusts; this is clear evidence of the toll the recession is taking.”Other findings include:· A general reduction in donations underlies the small growth in fundraising income to the largest 300 fundraising charities, reflecting the deepening recession. Underlying this low growth rate of 0.9%, almost two-fifths (37%) experienced a reduction in fundraising income from the previous year. A small number of the largest charities continue in a dominant position – the fundraising income of the top ten grew by 2.3% compared with the average 0.9% for the largest 300 as a whole, and accounted for well over one-quarter of top-300 income.· Corporate giving was up in 2007 -2008 achieving a small increase of £258 million in combined cash and in-kind giving.· Grant-making trusts and foundations showed almost no increase in their aggregate investment income.Despite this, Professor Cathy Pharoah, says: “Charities are in a good position to establish priorities in beneficiaries’ needs, and to communicate these to individual and major donors so that they continue to regard their charitable gifts as an important investment in society at a time of need. There is plenty of evidence that approaching donors in the right way during the recession can certainly boost giving.” – ENDS –For further information please contact Nicole Haroutunian: [email protected]; 0207 040 5210Notes to editorsMethodology of the reportThe data in Charity Market Monitor 2009 aims for consistency in the year of reporting, but in practice charities’ and companies’ annual accounts are published at different times of the year.

The so-called liberal media in the U.S. — most notably the New York Times, the Washington Post and some television news sources — profess independence. But they dare not offend their ruling-class owners on key international issues. Take, for example, the “reporting” we are handed each day on three important oil-producing countries: Venezuela, Iran and Saudi Arabia.How often are we told that the Venezuelan opposition (which is now in disarray) arose out of a lack of “democracy” and “fraudulent” elections in that country? These phrases are repeated again and again, not just by the openly right-wing media here, but by those claiming objectivity.They fail to mention the literally dozens of elections that have taken place in Venezuela since the movement led by Hugo Chávez took power in 1998 — through an election. Nor do they seem to remember that the right wing of the Venezuelan military kidnapped Chávez in 2002, but he was rescued by a mass mobilization of the Venezuelan people. The U.S. government a month ago, with the help of the corporate media, was hoping to instigate the military against President Nicolás Maduro, but this time it didn’t happen.How often are we told that the Iranian people are ruled over by a dictatorial theocracy? The imperialist media make no mention of the horrors carried out by their predecessor, the bloody Shah, who was installed by a CIA coup in 1953. A creature of the U.S. oil companies, he was overthrown in a popular revolution in 1979. That revolution led to the current government.Venezuela and Iran are now considered “enemies” of the U.S.But not Saudi Arabia. Right now, the U.S. military is providing logistical and material support for Saudi Arabia’s genocidal bombing of Yemen, a small country facing famine and genocide at the hands of this bloody Saudi/U.S. war.Even when reporting on this ghastly situation, do the liberal media here remind their audience that Saudi Arabia is politically a total dictatorship of the Saud royal family? That 700 princes control the whole economy and politics of the state? That there are no elections in Saudi Arabia? And that these theocratic princes have a great relationship with the government of the United States?Take a look at the Wikipedia entry on Saudi Arabia and scan down to a discussion of the royal family. There is a photograph taken in 1985. Click on it and you’ll see a lovely picture of Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump looking on as Ivana Trump shakes hands with King Fahd at the White House. Ivana has been replaced, but the reactionary international policies dictated by U.S. big business remain.Why don’t the Times, the Post, NPR and others mention that?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

China’s foreign investment in American real estate saw a decline, which many economists attribute to the lower inventory in the U.S., the U.S.-China trade war, and the strengthening dollar, but in the past month, Roofstock has seen a 450% increase in traffic from Asian countries.According to Eddie Shapiro, founder, President, and CEO, Nest Seeker International, one thing that the coronavirus could lead to is more investment from Chinese buyers in the American real estate market. Shapiro said Chinese investors have a lot of relationships within communities that draw investments near various “Chinatowns” in core cities.“There is a bit of a herd mentality that is mostly based on referrals and confidence within the community, so you have concentrations in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, but also markets like Vancouver, British Columbia,” he said.The possible growth of Chinese investors into a housing market that is already starving for inventory may not all be ideal. The National Association of Realtors recently reported that total housing inventory, while up 2.2% in January 2020 from December 2019 to 1.42 million units, is the lowest inventory level recorded since 1999.Investors can take advantage of lowered interest rates, but only time will tell how the coronavirus will impact the real estate market. According to Motley Fool, there is no doubt the coronavirus will impact the American economy and real estate market in some form, but no one truly knows to what extent.“Many real estate markets in the United States have rebounded and recovered from the 2008 recession, but there is a large chance that the continued spread of the coronavirus could be the tipping point, putting the U.S. economy into a full-blown recession,” Motley Fool adds.On ABC News, Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary and White House coronavirus-task-force member Dr. Ben Carson urged people to remain calm, but be smart.“It’s very important for people to remember that this virus is like other viruses. It should be treated the same way,” Carson told ABC News. “We have flu seasons that come up frequently, and there are certain precautions you take during that time.”For now, the market will remain relatively unchanged, but mortgage rates have still been impacted. A report by Markets Insider revealed the growing virus has caused mortgage rates to continue their downward slide. The report found the average rate for a 30-year fixed-rate mortgage hit 3.34% on Monday.Trade groups are responding by canceling events, on Friday, Five Star Global, the parent company of the Five Star Institute and the Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors, announced the cancellation of its Spring conference schedule, including the Single-Family Rental Summit, the Government Forum, and the National Mortgage Servicing Association Spring meeting.

The court, therefore called for a report from the high court. In the report, the delay was attributed to some personal difficulty of the Judge for some period of time. We appreciate that the learned Judge may have delivered a number of judgments and dealt with many cases and in the interregnum period may have even faced some personal difficulty as set out in the report but that does not take away from the fact that the process which was required to be followed as set out in the judicial pronouncements has not been followed in the present case, the bench also comprising Justices Dinesh Maheshwari and Hrishikesh Roy said.Referring to a recent order in Balaji Baliram Mupade vs. State of Maharashra, the bench observed: We had emphasized that judicial discipline requires promptness in delivery of judgments, an aspect repeatedly emphasized by this Court when this problem gets compounded where the result may be known but not the reasons depriving the aggrieved party of opportunity to seek further judicial redressal. We have also referred to the Constitution Bench judgment of this Court delivered as far back as in 1983 in State of Punjab & Ors. vs. Jagdev singh Talwandi (1984) 1 SCC 596, which drew the attention of the High Court to serious difficulties caused on account of practice which was being 3 increasingly adopted by several High Courts of pronouncing the final orders without reasoned judgments. We have also referred to the subsequent judgments even delivered by this Court in our aforesaid judgment but there is no purpose in repeating the sameThe court observed that the result of not following the process is that the appellant being the aggrieved party, is unable to avail of the legal remedy. Therefore, the court set aside the impugned order and remitted the matter back for reconsideration of the High Court on merits.CASE: ORIENTAL INSURANCE CO.
