It takes into account $1.6bn in dividend payments to the government. It compares with a loss of $6.7bn, or $2.06 a share, in the third quarter of 2009. The government rescued Freddie Mac and sibling company Fannie Mae nearly two years ago to cover their losses on soured mortgage loans, and it estimates the bailouts will cost taxpayers up to $259bn.

Summer tours: England’s crib could be better than Argentina’s…

first_imgEngland’s Ben Morgan (top) is tackled by Argentina’s Los Pumas centre Felipe Contepomi during their Rugby Union international test match at Padre Ernesto Martearena stadium in Salta, Argentina on June 8, 2013. AFP PHOTO / Juan Mabromata (Photo credit should read JUAN MABROMATA/AFP/Getty Images) With the wily Contepomi there is always a chance, though, and with tested but unattached players like centre Gonzalo Tiesi and utility forward Julio Faras Cabello having more quality than the phrase “second-string” and the lack of employers would suggest, this second Test should not be a walkover.If it is, Lancaster and his lieutenants should be praised for getting the kids to perform in foreign climes. Even if it took him a Test to pluck up the courage to go completely to the crib… This is not to say that the Pumas are an easy side to overcome or that England’s kids are the world-beaters just yet.No Club v Country for Old Men: ContepomiArgentina have no Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe or Juan Imhoff, Marcos Ayerza or Patricio Albacete, Juan Martin Hernandez, Agustin Creevy or Lucas Amorosino. They have deliberately played a “development” side, like England, as they rest Europe-based players before the Rugby Championship.This certainly makes them weaker, and with national hero Felipe Contepomi stepping in to play fly-half, despite having already retired from club rugby, the team are only just patched together. Come on Yarde, let’s go party: The London Irish wing, Marlon Yarde, is brought in to the Test side to face ArgentinaBy Alan DymockWINNING TESTS is one thing, but to do it with young, exciting players is another.For the second Test against Argentina, Stuart Lancaster has selected an explosive and sprightly backline with Freddie Burns, Marland Yarde, Kyle Eastmond, Jonathan Joseph and Christian Wade all in the mix.Bright: Launchbury’s pack stood outEngland won 32-3 in the Test against Argentina last week. In that game there was 29-year-old David Strettle on the left wing and Billy Twelvetrees at inside centre. The winger has been cast aside for debutant Yarde and with Twelvetrees off to Australia to become a Lion, Lancaster has opted to throw inexperienced league-convert Eastmond in to partner Joseph.The moves are bold, but with a pack that is able to galumph into and around a Pumas’ pack missing several key players there is scope for Lancaster to dispatch a few eager younger backs.The inclusion of Strettle was intriguing in the last Test, but now that Lancaster knows the likes of Joe Launchbury, Joe Marler, Ben Morgan and Tom Wood can handle their Argentine counterparts and Billy Vunipola can come in off the bench to skittle whichever opposition remain standing, the coach can jettison the older winger and bring in Eastmond as an inside centre without fear.

Additionally, 45% said they were very likely or somewhat likely to donate food or personal hygiene products to a food bank.33% of people agreed while 23% strongly agreed that the government should provide financial support to charities if their income is affected by the pandemic.Almost six in 10 (58%) also say they were either very worried or quite worried about the security of their own household income as a result of the pandemic.Susan Pinkney, Head of Research at CAF, said:“Our latest poll findings reflect both a generosity in willingness to help in a crisis, but also reveals understandable levels of worry out there as we all come to terms with how this crisis is affecting our daily lives and our ability to give to charity.“Charities of all shapes and sizes are also grappling with this uncertainty, with many facing an increase in demand for their services just as their ability to fundraise has been drastically cut.“The general public’s willingness to support charities that back up the NHS – along with foodbanks – is heartening.” 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.

Charities will need new fundraising approaches post-Covid

She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Charities will need to develop new fundraising approaches as giving falls over the next year, according to research commissioned by the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.While the report’s authors say the current environment is too uncertain to make accurate predictions on the outcomes for fundraising, based on Treasury forecasts for economic growth, household giving could drop by 25% in 2020-2021 with the economy affecting most fundraising income streams.Reframing the Ask – trends which will shape giving and fundraising post-Covid19, was authored by Cathy Pharoah, Visiting Professor, Centre for Charitable Giving and Philanthropy, Cass Business School, and Tom McKenzie, Honorary Research Fellow, at the University of Dundee. Advertisementcenter_img Tagged with: COVID-19 Research / statistics It looks at what could influence the outlook for fundraising post-Covid by exploring key areas of fundraising in relation to potential economic growth over the next few years, including household giving and spending, trends in charities’ total voluntary fundraising income, trends in legacies to charities, corporate giving, and trusts and foundations.Looking at pre-pandemic trends and data for giving, it says, will enable charities to develop a better understanding of where we are now and what happened in the last recession, which may provide pointers for the future of fundraising.The findings highlight a need for charities to seek out new opportunities. While household giving, legacy income and corporate giving will be affected by the economic climate, the research points to marked differences in household income and to some households likely to have made significant savings during lockdown, saying some donors may be persuaded to divert savings to charity, while others doing less well may decide to defer rather than cancel their giving.The report states:“Capacity to give will become increasingly polarised as COVID 19 has a more negative effect on some sections of the population than others, and those who can afford to give should be encouraged to do so.”And, while there will be an impact on corporate giving, the report suggests that this may be one area that is less affected, with many companies reducing but not stopping their giving, and many major corporate donors coming from sectors that have continued to do well during the pandemic.It says:“Major corporate donors tend to be in industrial sectors performing well in the FTSE, so future fundraising opportunities may lie with sectors which have grown business during COVID19, such as pharmaceuticals, online retail of essential goods, e-commerce, technology and software.”It also predicts that foundations will be less affected due to growth in their assets pre-pandemic, and their capital reserves.The report concludes:“Recession will not have an equal impact on all parts of society, and we will need to look particularly towards those who can afford to give, and supporting those who are less well-off. The course of economic recovery lies outside fundraisers’ control, but re-framing donor relationships lies within it.”  1,554 total views,  2 views today Melanie May | 11 September 2020 | Newslast_img read more

Government filters an .ir website for the first time

first_img Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 January 20, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Government filters an .ir website for the first time After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists IranMiddle East – North Africa to go further February 25, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders today accused the Iranian government of seeking to increase its control of the Internet in recent measures that have included contracting an Iranian company, Delta Global, to set up a new online censorship system. Organisation RSF_en News Follow the news on Iran The Entekhab website was made unaccessible yesterday. This is the first time that a site with Iran’s .ir domain suffix has been banned by the government. No official reason has been given but the case resembles that of another news site close to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Baztab.com, which was closed in October and reopened a month later.It seems that Entekhab was filtered for similar reasons, amid intense political struggle between rival conservative factions. Entekhab had referred to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s attempts to impose his mentor, Ayatollah Mesbah, as Khamenei’s successor.—————————–18.10.05Tehran seeking new ways to censor the Internet and track dissidentsMore sites banned, overhaul of filtering system plannedReporters Without Borders today accused the Iranian government of seeking to increase its control of the Internet in recent measures that have included contracting an Iranian company, Delta Global, to set up a new online censorship system.While developing a woefully oppressive model of Internet management, Iran is participating actively in international talks about Internet governance that are being held as part of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), the press organisation said.“These new measures point to an ideological hardening in the Iranian government and a desire by the new president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, to centralise authority,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They also show that factions exist within the conservatives, as the latest website to be banned, Baztab.com, is run by supporters of the Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei.”“We are also worried by statements coming from the company that seems to have been given the job of managing Iran’s Internet filters,” the press freedom organisation added. “If what this company’s chief executive turns out to be correct, online surveillance and censorship is to be stepped up. This is very bad news for Iranian bloggers and Internet users.”The head of Delta Global, Rahim Moazemi, told the local news agency ISNA in late September that his company had won a government contract for the management of the Internet control and censorship system. He said he wanted to put an end to “the anarchy of the Internet Service Providers (ISPs)” by centralising the filtering system. He also claimed that Delta Global’s technology was capable of blocking access to all the tools used to get round censorship.Iranian filtering currently uses the “smart filter” technology developed by the US company Secure Comuting, which claims the Iranian authorities never paid to license this software. Iranian Internet censorship is not homogenous and varies according to the ISP used, of which Iran has several hundred. So a website may be accessible in one city and blocked in another.Access to at least four websites that include coverage of Iranian women’s issues – www.womeniniran.org, http://irwomen.com, www.iftribune.com and www.womeniw.com – has been blocked since the start of September. Those in charge of these sites have reacted by launching an online petition at :www.petitiononline.com/mod_perl/signed.cgi?womeno .A court meanwhile on 12 October “provisionally” banned the news website Baztab.com although it belongs to former Revolutionary Guards commander Mohssen Rezai, a supporter of Ayatollah Khamenei, and is supposed to be backed by the Iranian intelligence services. Baztab published reports that were embarrassing for the president. The site’s editor, Foad Sadeghi, said it was banned as a result of a complaint by the secretariat of the High Council for National Security about its articles on the nuclear negotiations that are currently under way.The ban points to internal struggles within the conservative camp, between President Ahmadinejad’s supporters and those still loyal to Ayatollah Khamenei. It seems that the president, with the support of the military, is trying to take control of the internal state apparatus and impose his mentor, Ayatollah Mesbah, as Khamenei’s successor.During the preparatory meetings for the WSIS (which is to take place in Tunis on 16-18 November), Iran called for a “new model” of Internet governance that would put an end to the existing US hegemony.————-Create your blog with Reporters without borders: www.rsfblog.org Help by sharing this information IranMiddle East – North Africa News News Receive email alerts Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists March 18, 2021 Find out more June 9, 2021 Find out more Newslast_img read more

It was such an honor to think that people thought enough of me to nominate me. It was just a feeling that I can’t express. I never imagined that anything like this would happen to me. It’s a good feeling to know that others appreciate what you do.

Now, it keeps me busy so I’m not sitting around twiddling my thumbs,” she said. “I like staying active and involved. And, once a volunteer, always a volunteer. It’s not something that you want to give up doing.“I think that being able to work with children is a gift and I’m thankful that I have that gift because it has brought me so much happiness.”David Carpenter, who served Pike County as an Extension agent for more than 25 years, was inducted posthumously into the Alabama 4-H Wall of Fame at the same November ceremony.Carpenter joined the Alabama Cooperative Extension System as an assistant county agent in Geneva County in 1975.Two years later, he transferred to Pike County where he continued to serve clientele in the areas of horticulture, natural resources, animal and dairy science, agronomy and 4-H until his retirement in 2003.“One of David’s greatest contributions to the Pike County 4-H program was the creation of the first Pike County 4-H horse club in 1977,” Powell said.“Today’s leaders for that club were in David’s first 4-H horse club.Following Carpenter’s retirement, he was elected to the Pike County Commission.“David often said that his time spent as a county commissioner was almost like the time he spent as a young county agent,” Powell said.
