first_img iBid’s award-winning silent auction technology is raising the roof on charities’ event fundraising targets. With clients ranging from the NSPCC and Macmillan Cancer Support through to Action Against Hunger and smaller led events, iBid have seen a 114% rise in the number of charity clients using iBid technology over the last financial year, April 2012 – March 2013.“We are delighted with the increase,” says iBid’s Managing Director, Tim Stansbury. “Charities are excited about our technology and the word is spreading. We are helping revolutionise how charity supporters give both at live events and online, via bidding on auctions or interactive donations. We are really excited to be helping clients maximise their fundraising efforts.”The easy-to-use technology allows guests to bid for auction prizes throughout the charitable event. Unlike in a live auction, bidding takes place on handheld touchscreen tablets which charities have found increase the frequency and value of bids made at the event. The tablets are pre programmed with guest names to keep the process incredibly simple, and provide detailed information and images on the lots available. As the auction progresses the latest bids instantly appear on large screens around the event venue that again help fuel the competitive nature of bidders. The company is also able to advise charities on the running order of the event, the progression of the bids and whether bidding increments should be increased to again help raise the fundraising stakes.

first_imgSpeech by Lamont Lilly, Workers World Party candidate for vice president, to the Peace and Freedom Party convention in Sacramento, Calif., on Aug. 13.In January of 1971, Black Panther Party co-founder Huey P. Newton declared, “The Black Panther Party grew out of the Black Power Movement, but the party transformed the ideology of Black Power into a socialist ideology, a Marxist-Leninist ideology.”This statement reflects the core of what the Black Panther Party subscribed to be, and by this time, how the Black Panther Party subscribed to think — through a Marxist-Leninist class analysis.They formed because poor Black people were being terrorized by the Oakland police.  They formed because the Black community was in need of “bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace,” because they clearly realized that capitalism was an archenemy to Black Liberation.This is the same crossroads that the Black Lives Matter Movement is currently standing right in the middle of, comrades.  As socialist and progressive leftists, we must support this movement with commitment and vigor.  How could we not?  In the last three years, it has, no doubt, inspired the poor and oppressed worldwide.The Peace and Freedom Party has a long and deep history directly connected to the Black Liberation Movement. It was Eldridge Cleaver who served as the Peace and Freedom Party’s first official presidential nominee — a nomination that marked a direct connection to the boots on the ground, to the broader movement in a very militant and revolutionary manner.That is what true socialism should reflect — a connection to the most oppressed — a commitment to the proletarian working class — to the disenfranchised and most marginalized.The Black Panther Party considered themselves the vanguard, and rightfully so.  And so do many of the various fractions of the Black Lives Matter Movement.Those were the youth and working poor we saw in Ferguson and Baltimore — fighting back against tanks and teargas with their bodies, laying it all on the line, connecting their local struggles to Palestine and Libya, building on the revolutionary spirit of Cuba, Puerto Rico and Venezuela.This is the exact brand of theory, message and revolutionary application that the Moorehead/Lilly campaign has been involved in since day one, sisters and brothers.  We are, indeed, ingrained in it.The Workers World Party U.S. presidential candidate, Monica Moorehead, was down in Ferguson twice in 2014. Not for photo-ops and self-promotion, but to genuinely help the people organize. And so was I.She was there in Baltimore with the Baltimore People’s Power Assembly.  I was there, literally, when the Baltimore Rebellion first popped off — when the Baltimore police were pepper spraying and tear gassing women and children, when they were locking up more than 300 protesters. And we were still there when all of the cameras left, feeding and organizing, listening to the people, distributing Pampers.I am not telling you this to boast, sisters and brothers.  I am simply sharing with you the kind of connection and relationship that the Moorehead/Lilly campaign shares with the broader movement, from the labor struggle, to the immigration movement, to Black Lives Matter.We do not “wear the movement” as credentials. We are, instead, interwoven within the movement as dedicated Marxist-Leninists.Sisters and brothers, there’s a new generation that has really taken a liking to socialism, and they’re speaking out against state violence and police terror — against poverty, unemployment and the failure of capitalism — against global war and the military-industrial complex. They are speaking up for gender equality, queer and trans rights. They need us to speak with them, comrades.If you open our 10-Point Program — which, hopefully, all of you have a copy of by now — I do believe it speaks for itself.Bold. Principled. Revolutionary.

first_imgSource: Ag Web By Gary Truitt – Dec 3, 2014 Home News Feed Watch out dairy farmers, here comes Coke SHARE Facebook Twitter Watch out dairy farmers, here comes Cokecenter_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Coca-Cola has already claimed its place in the soda, water, energy drink, and juice markets. Now the company is going after milk. The beverage giant is preparing a nationwide launch of a high-end milk, called Fairlife, in 2015. U.S. milk industry remains highly fragmented with few recognizable brand names. In fact, store-brand milk accounts for almost one-third of milk sales, according to market research firm Euromonitor International. With Fairlife, Coca-Cola is looking to use its marketing prowess to change that—creating the “Coke” of milks.Fairlife is the product of a joint venture formed by Coca-Cola and dairy co-op Select Milk Producers in 2012. Coke saw the partnership as an opportunity to develop “higher quality value-added health and wellness beverages,” particularly what it calls value-added dairy. By that, the company means Fairlife isn’t your average milk: It’s got more protein and calcium than standard milk, half the sugar, and is lactose-free. It’s also expensive, with initial prices (in test markets) running 65¢ more per quart than conventional milk.At a recent conference announcing Fairlife, Sandy Douglas, the president of Coca-Cola North America, said the company expects the premium milk to “rain money” following extensive marketing efforts (which, so far, include a website with pin-up style images of women wearing liquid milk dresses).That’s a surprising comment to make about a beverage category that’s struggling. Unlike soda, where Coke has about 13.7 percent market share by volume in North America, the dairy industry is fragmented and in decline. Per capita milk consumption in the U.S. has been falling for decades, and Euromonitor expects demand for milk products to continue dropping.The other challenge for a premium dairy product like Fairlife is that consumers are highly price-sensitive when it comes to milk. Since the perceived differences among milk products is low, many will just reach for the cheaper option, according to research by Nielsen. This has kept sales of store-brand milk (also known as private label) strong as prices rose this year. For instance, Dean Foods, the country’s largest milk processor and the company behind brands like TruMoo and Tuscan, reported in November that consumers traded down as the price gap between its brand-name and private-label milks expanded to 66¢ this year from 62¢, putting its branded milks under pressure.One bright spot in the name-brand milk industry has been nondairy alternatives like almond milk, and it may well be appropriate to compare what Coca-Cola’s doing with Fairlife to WhiteWave’s marketing of Silk almond milk, whose sales grew 30 percent in the third quarter. WhiteWave’s marketing efforts haven’t paid off only in almond milk—sales of its Horizon Organic brand milk are also rising, showing there is demand for premium dairy products.Even as U.S. milk consumption declines, Euromonitor expects companies to offer more products fortified with nutrients like calcium or omega-3 fatty acids—like Fairlife. So if Coca-Cola successfully paves the way for brand-name premium milk, copycats are sure to follow.

first_img RSF_en Receive email alerts News News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is appalled by the situation of media freedom in Yemen, where another journalist was killed while covering the war on 29 May and ten journalists held by the Houthi rebels have reportedly been moved to an unknown location. YemenMiddle East – North Africa Condemning abuses According to Yemeni media reports, Ma’reb Press website correspondent Abdallah Azizan was killed on 29 May while covering clashes between Houthi rebels and pro-government forces in Bayhan, a town in Shabwah province 300 km east of the capital. He is said to have been killed by sniper fire from the Houthi side.The families of the journalists detained by the Houthi rebels have been quoted by the local media as saying they have been transferred from Habra prison to an unknown destination. Held by the Houthis for nearly a year, these journalists began a hunger strike on 9 May.“We condemn the disastrous state of media freedom in Yemen,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “Journalists are being targeted by all parties and cannot cover the war without risking their lives. We call on the Houthis to free the detained journalists and we remind all parties to the conflict of their duty to protect all civilians including journalists.”It has become extremely difficult to cover the situation in Yemen and to obtain reliable information because many journalists have fled the country or their hometown, or have chosen to stop working as journalists.According to RSF’s tally, Azizan was the fifth journalist to be killed since the start of the year in Yemen. He was preceded by Mohammed Al Yemeni, who was killed on 21 March while covering clashes in the city of Taiz. A total of eight journalists and media workers were killed in the course of their work in 2015.Yemen is ranked 170th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.

We urge you, Your Majesty, to do everything in your power to prevent any further judicial errors”.

In the speech you gave today, you described the younger generation as Malaysia’s hope and future. RPK is a model of the free speech this generation should enjoy. The way the federal court in Putrajaya is conducting RPK’s case is travesty of justice. The court’s impartiality is jeopardised by the fact that Augustine Paul, one of the three judges on the panel handling the case, issued a ruling against RPK in 2001 as a “threat to internal security.” RPK had posted comments online that lambasted the judge for his role in Anwar Ibrahim’s corruption trial – comments that were widely circulated on the Internet. The decision by judges Nik Hashim Nik Ab Rahman and Zulkefli Ahmad Makinuddin to reject a request by RPK’s lawyers to recuse Judge Paul seems to be unconstitutional. Paul chose not to remain in court to hear the application for his recusal, leaving the other two judges. However, the law requires that such an application by heard by three federal judges. Since the start of this case, the police and government officials have acted outside the law as established by the constitution. RPK was jailed under the only section of the ISA that allows the authorities to imprison a person without giving their reasons. And the charges brought against him violated some of his basic rights, including individual freedom (article 5.1), freedom of expression (article 10.1) and freedom of religion (article 11). Malaysia has ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, so such violations of freedom cannot continue. This situation threatens the rule of law in Malaysia and offers an extremely negative image of your country internationally. In the current context, it seems clear that this is a political manoeuvre to silence RPK and put pressure on Malaysia’s civil society leaders. We believe that it is your role, as your country’s monarch, to defend your people and ensure respect for their basic rights, while remaining completely neutral and independent of any political party, as required by the constitution. This is why we are seeking your help and why we ask you to ensure the withdrawal of the appeal against RPK’s release and to prevent any other attempt to detain him under the ISA. These proceedings are a challenge which Malaysia should take care to meet. A new hearing has been set for 23 February. We urge you, Your Majesty, to do everything in your power to prevent any further judicial errors. We trust you will give our request your careful consideration. Respectfully.”————— – Two court cases test online free expressionCall for charges to be dropped against blogger “RPK” and Hindu rights activist Uthayakumar – Leading blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin finally released – Authorities accused of bad faith as Habeas corpus hearing held for detained blogger February 17, 2009 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Your Majesty, do everything in your power to prevent any judicial error”last_img read more

first_imgSubscribe The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago FHFA Addresses Mortgage Servicer Liquidity Concerns  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago April 21, 2020 2,062 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Coronavirus FHFA GSEs Related Articles Home / Daily Dose / FHFA Addresses Mortgage Servicer Liquidity Concerns About Author: Mike Albanese Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced the alignment of Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Mac’s (the Enterprises) policies regarding servicer obligations to advance scheduled monthly principal and interest payments for single-family mortgage loans.The policy states once a servicer has advanced four months of missed payments on a loan, it will have no further obligation to advance scheduled payments. This policy applies to all GSE servicers. “The four-month servicer advance obligation limit for loans in forbearance provides stability and clarity to the $5 trillion Enterprise-backed housing finance market,” said FHFA Director Dr. Mark A. Calabria. “Mortgage servicers can now plan for exactly how long they will need to advance principal and interest payments on loans for which borrowers have not made their monthly payment.”The release states that when a mortgage is in a mortgage-backed security (MBS), Fannie Mae servicers with a scheduled payment are responsible for advancing the principal and interest payment regardless of borrower payments. Freddie Mac servicers are only obligated to advance four months of missed borrower interest payments. Today’s instruction establishes a four-month advance obligation limit for Fannie Mae scheduled servicing for loans and servicers which is consistent with the current policy at Freddie Mac.The FHFA is also instructing the GSEs to maintain loans in COVID-19 forbearance plans in MBS pools for at least the duration of the forbearance plan. Mortgages that are delinquent for more than four months, historically, were purchased out of MBS pools by the GSEs. Loans with COVID-19 payment forbearance shall be treated “like a natural disaster event” and will remain in the MBS pool. The FHFA says this change reduces the potential liquidity demands on the GSEs from loans in forbearance and delinquent loans. David M. Dworkin, President and CEO, National Housing Conference, said the announcement by the FHFA is an “important first step.””Ensuring servicers can move payments to the end of the loan term and get reimbursed in four months is progress,” he said. “But requests by consumers for help in paying their home mortgages are already very high and growing. That is no surprise given the skyrocketing unemployment numbers. As forbearance requests continue to rise, we will have to do more.Dworkin added that the federal government should not hesitate to support the nation’s housing finance system, so mortgage providers can continue helping at-risk homeowners.”Without that support, a deteriorating situation in housing and homeownership will increase the likelihood of a COVID-19 recession becoming a depression,” Dworkin said.A report by Black Knight states that as of April 16, more than 2.9 million homeowners, or 5.5% of all mortgages, have entered into COVID-19 mortgage forbearance plans. This population represents $651 billion in unpaid principal and includes 4.9% of all GSE-backed loans and 7.6% of FHA/VA loans.A new survey by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) found that the number of home loans in forbearance rose from 2.73% to 3.74% during the week of March 30 to April 5.Mortgages backed by Ginnie Mae had the largest weekly growth of 1.58% and the highest overall share in forbearance requests (5.89%).center_img Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share 1Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Coronavirus FHFA GSEs 2020-04-21 Mike Albanese Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

The Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan has asked the Delhi Government to address the issues raised in two PILs which will be heard together. Filed by Advocate Sarthak Maggon and Mr Ajit P Singh, the petitions seek a direction to be issued to the Jail authorities to set up a web link for legal mulakats and for conducting regular legal mulakats telephonically or through video conference to ensure access to justice to the inmates of Tihar Prison Complex. The Petitioner has argued that despite suspension of physical visits by order dated March 23, no provision has been made so far to give effect to conducting telephonic visits. While highlighting that the present system is adversely affecting the prisoner’s right to personal liberty and legal representation, the Petitioner has submitted that due to the absence of telephonic and virtual visits, the administration of justice is getting delayed as prisoners were unable to contact their legal representatives. ‘It is noteworthy that setting up legal mulakat through the establishment of a web link open to registration by advocates shall prove to be a quantum leap in the simplification and accessibility to justice by protecting the rights of the inmates to engage appropriate legal counsel to represent the remedies available in accordance with due process’, the petition says. Delhi Government, while submitting its status report, contended that telephonic conversations are already being provided to the inmates as per the Delhi Prison Rules. In addition to this, the Delhi Government submitted that in 10-15 days, video conferencing facility will also be made available to all the inmates for both talking to their family members as well as their legal counsels. ‘Video Conferencing with private counsels has already been started in women’s prison, Jail No. 6’, Delhi Government submitted. The matter will next be taken up on July 07.The Petitioner in person, Advocate Sarthak Maggon was represented by Mr. Vikas Pahwa, Senior Advocate and Mr. Arvind Nayar, Senior Advocate.
