That said, we also think it shouldn’t be used as an excuse to buy any old tat.If you’re going to dip your toe into choppy waters and invest for the long term, you may as well focus on quality growth stocks.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…This is what I think (hope) I’ve done with two new additions to my own portfolio this month. Drum roll, please…Market leaderSome might baulk at my decision to begin building a stake in property portal Rightmove (LSE: RMV). After all, the housing market has pretty much collapsed since the outbreak of the coronavirus outbreak and could struggle to bounce back in its aftermath.So, what’s got me buying? There are a few reasons.First, FTSE 100 constituent Rightmove is the undisputed market leader in what it does. For many, it is the housing market. All attempts by competitors to snatch user eyeballs to date have failed. That’s the sort of economic moat I look for.Second, this is a company that generates staggeringly high returns on capital employed (ROCE). This is the amount of profit it makes relative to the money it invests in the business.For fund managers like Terry Smith, ROCE is one of the key metrics to look for when ascertaining whether it’s worth buying a particular growth stock. And he’s not done too badly with this strategy. Third, Rightmove has a great balance sheet with £24m net cash at the end of 2019. The recent decision to withdraw the final dividend will help bolster things further.Fourth, Rightmove’s share price — at the time of writing — is 30% down from where it peaked in February. While anchoring to a historic price should be avoided, I suspect a fair bit of negativity is already priced in. But might the shares continue falling? Absolutely! And it’s for this reason I’ve only put a very small amount of my capital to work for now.Another top growth stockA second company I’ve started buying in April shares a lot of Rightmove’s characteristics and attractions. It’s an online business with a great brand, high returns on capital and stonking margins. Unlike Rightmove, however, this company’s services are popular with those looking to save rather than spend money.Step forward price comparison specialist Moneysupermarket.com (LSE: MONY). If we truly are heading for the mother of all recessions then I think it likely traffic to the FTSE 250 member’s site will only increase.People will still need to renew contracts and policies in tough times, but they’ll be more motivated than ever to do so as cheaply as possible. While dependent on what providers, such as banks and insurance companies, are willing to offer consumers, the firm’s multiple revenue streams should also give it some protection, even if some products are withdrawn. Like Rightmove, Moneysupermarket’s finances look steady. The company had net cash of £30m at the end of March and has decided to go ahead with paying its final dividend for last year.Again, I’ve only bought a small slice for now. But I’ll definitely be looking to add more if (and that’s a sizeable ‘IF’) markets sink back to levels seen in March. center_img Paul Summers | Sunday, 19th April, 2020 | More on: MONY RMV Enter Your Email Address Paul Summers owns shares in Moneysupermarket.com and Rightmove.

C4’s Dispatches bases poor practice claims on misunderstanding of the law

first_img Tagged with: Dispatches ethics Fundraising Standards Board Institute of Fundraising media Telephone fundraising One of the charities using the services of NTT – Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital – is not listed as member of the FRSB’s website.Although Dispatches quoted the latest Fundraising Standards Board figures revealing that complaints about telephone fundraising had risen by 26 per cent last year, it didn’t add that the volume of telephone fundraising had risen by 25 per cent, meaning that the proportion of complaints to calls remained roughly the same.FRSB figures show that during 2013-14, there were more than 14 million fundraising telephone calls made, which generated 8,019 complaints – or one complaint for every 1,794 calls. In 2012-13, that figure was one complaint for every 1,804 calls. Channel 4’s Dispatches programme about telephone fundraising last week criticised two agencies over the timing of the solicitation statement.Dispatches claimed that both Pell and Bales’ and NTT’s disclosures that they are paid fundraisers were contrary to Cabinet Office guidance, because they came “after a gift had been offered”.But it based its criticism on a misunderstanding of official guidance. The programme quoted Professor Stephen Lee ­– a former director of the IoF (when it was called the Institute of Charity of Fundraising Managers), now at City University – as saying that Cabinet Office guidance “clearly” requires the statement is made before a gift is offered.Professor Lee’s claims in the programme were include in articles about the Dispatches programme run by the Times, Daily Telegraph and the Guardian.However, the Cabinet Office guidance only says that the statement – required under the Charities Act 1992 as amended by the Charities Act 2006 – must accompany any “representation” for a donation. In relation to telephone fundraising the guidance says that it must be made during the call, but does not specify a point during the call.This official advice is included in the Institute of Fundraising’s Code of Fundraising Practice.Peter Lewis, ceo of the Institute of Fundraising (IoF), said the government stated last year that it intended to produce further guidance on the solicitation statement. Lewis said: “We would welcome clear and simple guidance for charities on solicitation statements and we would be happy to work with the Government on this.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Howard Lake | 18 August 2014 | News Possible unethical practicesAs has been widely reported, the programme revealed instances of call centre staff being encouraged to lie about their personal circumstances ­– such as pretending they had children – to maintain the flow of a conversation.It also showed other examples of what could be construed as unethical practice. One manager told an undercover reporter not to remove a person suffering from depression from the call list as “depression was not a get out of jail free card”. On a different occasion a manager said that a woman who said she caring for a terminally ill child and did not want to talk should be marked as a ‘soft’ refusal – meaning she could be called at a later date.The Fundraising Standards Board (FRSB) said it was “critical that any ask for funds is carried out in line with industry standards, always treating donors with respect, honesty and openness”. The FRSB added:“The allegations of poor fundraising practices identified within the Dispatches programme are of great concern to us and we have already contacted the relevant organisations to discuss those matters and consider whether further investigation or action is required.” Advertisement C4’s Dispatches bases poor practice claims on misunderstanding of the law  29 total views,  2 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 MoreAddThislast_img read more

For struggling crops and the market prices we’re now simply in a wait and see mode.“I think as we look at the grain markets in particular we’ve been in a malaise if you will. I’m talking about the market in general, thinking that the world inventories are sufficient, that we got off to a pretty good start in the U.S. Many were saying it was a great start in the United States as if the crop were made. I think the last 2-3 weeks have reminded us this crop is not made. There are vulnerabilities out there and what we see in pricing is a market that’s trying to find a bottom. The higher prices would be good. The discouraging thing of course is it’s happening in our area where we’re really looking at some of these losses that could be quite severe.”Hurt updated a crowd of over 400 on his latest corn and soybean estimates following USDA’s recent declines in crop condition and continued soybean planting delays.“I took about 9 bushels to the acre off an average acre of corn in Indiana from just this last week, all the wet weather that we’ve had and about 2 bushels on soybeans.”The decline in crop condition has led to higher prices.“My estimates are we’ve already lost about 130 million bushels of corn across the United States. Again that’s just using these crop ratings that come out every Monday from USDA, and about 100 million bushels of soybeans. I think on corn, just that loss up to this point is maybe 10-15 cents on corn and it’s probably more like 25-30, maybe 35 cents higher on soybeans. And of course the question is what happens next?”What happens next is a continued eye on the weather to see what kind of rescue it can provide in needed areas. Hurt told HAT he believes there is upside potential in the market, but low prices have certainly stimulated use. He did encourage growers not to give up on the 2015 crop.“You just never know how this will turn out, so stay with it,” he said.Hear the full HAT interview:Chris Hurt June 2015 update Live Cattle LEM21 (JUN 21) 118.70 1.13 All quotes are delayed snapshots Feeder Cattle GFQ21 (AUG 21) 151.18 2.78 How Indiana Crops are Faring Versus Other States last_img read more

They criticised the government for not applying the peace agreement it had signed, especially concerning reintegration of the rebels into mainstream society. Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Robert Ménard called on the authorities to allow the station to reopen at once so the journalists could once more do their job freely.The head of the station, Serge Hilbron, said Agadez police came to close it down and showed a telegram signed by the interior minister, who reportedly acted on the orders of President Mamadou Tandja.Abdoulaye Tiemogo, editor of the weekly Le Canard Echainée, is due to be released from prison on 20 February at the end of an eight-month sentence for libelling Prime Minister Hama Amadou, who sued him on 18 June last year after three articles strongly criticised him for trying to corrupt the head of parliament so he could keep his post as prime minister.

A statement signed by the “Tolima Bloc” of the paramilitary United Self-Defence Groups of Colombia (AUC) accused him of being “sensationalist and manipulative” and declared him a “military target.” It was signed “Daniel Roa,” the presumed chief of the local paramilitaries.Martínez has often covered corruption and drug trafficking in the past two years, and recently reported on suspected embezzlement in a social insurance fund allegedly implicating local officials. The target of repeated threats, he described himself as “exhausted” and “extremely worried.” He said the protection he is getting from the interior ministry is not enough to ensure his and his family’s safety, but he refuses to leave Ibagué.________________________________________________________28.04.2005-Radio journalist threatened and harassed in IbaguéReporters Without Borders today condemned a new death threat against Gilberto Martínez Prado, the manager of Colmundo Radio in Ibagué (in the center-western department of Tolima), as well as the threats and harassment to which he has been constantly subjected for years.”The police protection he has been getting for the past two years is not enough on its own to guarantee his right to freely practice his trade and does not exonerate the Colombian government from its duty to investigate the corruption allegations he has made, which have prompted the death threats and harassment and forced him to leave the region several times,” the organization said.On arriving at the radio station on 26 April, Martínez found a letter saying: “Carry on criticizing, son of a bitch, hide behind that microphone that makes you feel big. All runts end up in the cemetery.”The Fundación para la Libertad de Prensa (a Colombia press freedom organization partnered with Reporters Without Borders) noted that Martínez has in recent weeks been covering a case of embezzlement in a family insurance fund in which a former parliamentary representative for Tolima is implicated.As well as being a radio journalist, Martínez is also a member of a committee that was set up to monitor implementation of a pact on transparency in the Ibagué local government. Since 2000, he has specialized in the fight against local corruption.”My problems began in January 2003 when I criticised a system of corruption within the previous municipal government and its links with drug traffickers,” he told Reporters Without Borders. “It was around this time that my friend Felix Martínez Ramírez, a lawyer and a member of the committee, was murdered.” He accused the former mayor’s father, Mario Rodríguez Padilla, of being behind the murder and prosecutors in Bogotá ordered Rodríguez’s arrest on suspicion of being the instigator. “But the arrest order was never executed, and I am the prosecution witness in this case,” he said.The Department for Security Administration (DAS) granted him special protection in March 2003. Since then, 37 bodyguards have taken turns to protect him. “But the threats have never stopped,” he said. “I have had to leave the region several times and take my family out.” The protection was renewed in September 2004 but Martínez is concerned that it may stop soon.

On October 11, the gallery will also open its doors as a participant for ArtNight Pasadena from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm with a special performance by Michael Lewis Miller called Bucket List. There will also be live jazz courtesy of the Julie Miwa Quintet.“I’m really happy that this exhibition coincided with our first ArtNight, because we have 12 diverse artists, who do exceptional work,” says Jane Chafin, director of Offramp Gallery. “There are three or four pieces by each of the 12 artists. It’s a showcase for what we do here at Offramp. I really think there’s something for everybody in the show.”For the ArtNight performances, the Julie Miwa Quintet will be performing in the garden, says Chafin, “They’ve played here a couple of times and have been very well received.”Michael Lewis Miller,on the other hand, will be doing a performance called Bucket List. He wears a vest that has pigeon holes in it. He will engage the audience by having people write their bucket list on scrolls of paper and putting them in the pigeon holes. He will read some of them out loud and ask others to do the same. He wears a “ship voyage hat” with candles to light the way,” says Chafin. “And, he wears a cow bell to mark the passage of time.”Chafin and her partner, architect Chaz Alexander, started Offramp Gallery in 2008. With Chafin’s unbridled passion for art and Alexander’s unending support for her vision, it can be said that Offramp is the result of a true partnership.What sets Offramp Gallery apart from other galleries is that Chafin gets to know each of her artists personally. By understanding the stories behind each art piece and the process of creating it, Chafin has a deep knowledge and connection with all the artworks she exhibits.“We recently remodeled to double the gallery space and it allows me much more flexibility in programming. “Offramp is unique to Pasadena — it allows Pasadenans to view and purchase high quality contemporary art without having to drive to downtown LA or the west side,” says Chafin. “And it does so in an historical house and garden setting.”Offramp.
