Finland is unusual among Eurozone states in requiring a majority parliamentary vote for major decisions regarding the EU, which would include contributing to Lisbon’s rescue. And the Eurozone’s current temporary bailout facility requires a unanimous vote of all 17 member states to dispense aid.Economists predict “turmoil” if one of the Eurozone’s few paymaster economies – albeit one of its smaller members – resists the region’s third sovereign rescue. Newedge’s Bill Blain said: “If one core euro member does it, what’s to stop other sceptics in Holland and elsewhere doing the same?… An easy prediction for next week: stress and strain across the euro peripherals again. And that means increasing worries about banks.”“Delay in securing financial assistance to Portugal would… inevitably result in more market turmoil,” said Societe Generale’s Michala Marcussen, calling Finland a potential “thorn in the euro’s side”.The True Finns won 19 per cent of the vote, adding to the probability that the party could be part of a new coalition government.That is a dramatic increase from the 4.1 per cent they received in the last election in 2007.The True Finns, led by Timo Soini, are against a permanent Eurozone bailout fund and are in the same grouping in the European parliament as UKIP, the Europe of Freedom and Democracy party.Meanwhile, fears that the Eurozone’s peripheral economies could be damaged by interest rate rises by the European Central Bank (ECB) were dismissed by ECB executive board member Jose Manuel Gonzalez-Paramo. “A 25-basis-point increase like that on 7 April may not be convenient for those countries who are behind in their recovery, but the ECB cannot hold off its mandate because of that,” he told a Chilean newspaper.

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. Howard Lake | 22 June 2010 | News Attrition levels of donors recruited through doorstep face-to-face (F2F) fundraising are at their lowest levels since the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) began analysing this data from 2004 onwards. The results of the 2010 Donor Attrition and Retention Survey (DARS) have just been announced at the PFRA’s AGM in London by Rupert Tappin of Future Fundraising and Morag Fleming of Quarriers.The annual survey of charities have covered the periods 2004 and 2006-08 inclusive. This year’s survey has found that the attrition rate of monthly donors recruited on the doorstep in the first five months of 2009 was 30.5%. The average attrition rate in all previous years was 33%. This means that 33% of people who made a first payment had cancelled their Direct Debit after three months.Rupert Tappin said that, if this trend continued for the rest of the year, “we should see doorstep attrition come in at around 44 or 45%, which would represent our best year since we began our analysis, as most years have returned annual attrition levels of 48-50%”.He suggested that the drop in attrition was down to agencies achieving a better balance of finding new donors and ensuring that those donors who do sign up stay giving for longer.The latest report involved the giving data of 750,000 individual donors spanning 2006 to 2009, representing donations of £68 million of regular giving income. Twenty seven charities submitted data from 121 separate campaigns. 665,271 donors made at least one payment.Speaking at the AGM, Fleming thanked the new core group of 10 charities which had committed to providing data to DARS for the next five years. She suggested that there was also an international version of DARS being planned to cover Europe.She commented on the better than expected attrition levels. “The recession has certainly caused us problems,” she said, but perhaps they are not as bad as we might have feared. However, that is probably because street fundraising is experiencing the same improvement in donor care and stewardship that has led to improved attrition levels and so this is offsetting the worst effects of the recession.”DARS 2010 also found that:* although street in-house teams showed higher attrition than agency teams in 2006, 2007 and 2008, but by 2009 the pattern had reversed, with 24% attrition at three months against 30% for agency teams. Fleming couldn’t suggest a reason for this.* the percentages of donors signing up to Gift Aid at the door dropped from a high of 88% in 2006 to 73% in 2009. Street averages suffered a smaller drop, from a high of 76% in 2007 to 73% in 2009.* the average gift on the door, excluding Gift Aid, dropped from £7.92 to £7.33 from 2006 to 2008, but rose again in 2009 to £8.06. However, the drop in Gift Aid take up reate means that the average gift including Gift Aid has fallen from £9.88 in 2006 to £9.72 in 2009.* the average gift on the street has also dropped from a high of £9.21 in 2007 to £8.71 in 2009.www.pfra.org.uklast_img read more

DuPont Pioneer Harvest Update 10/20/16

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 20, 2016 Audio Playerhttps://s3.amazonaws.com/hoosieragtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Mary-gumz-October.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The corn harvest is moving into the later planted crop, and both stalks and yields are holding up. Indiana essentially had two corn crops this year, one planted in April and other planted in late May or early June. The expectation was the later planted corn yields would suffer; but, as May Gumz, agronomist  with DuPont Pioneer, reports, yield numbers are holding up, “The later maturity corn was able to take advantage of good growing condition in August and September especially in the northern  part of the state. Yields I am hearing on hybrids like P1197 have been very solid this year.”Not only are yields holding up, but stalk integrity is also holding up better than anticipated.  But Gumz says ear molds are a definite problem that producers need to be careful with, “If you notice you have, especially  Gibberella ear rot, that is the mold that has a pink cast at the tip of the ear, then take extra care in drying down the crop.” She recommends drying to 14% moisture if you are storing for a few months or 13% if you plan to store it longer.As for soybeans, yields are outstanding and the harvesting of what was a very tall soybean crop has gone smoothly.  Gumz says this fall she was in fields were the soybean plants were shoulder high. Yet, the height has not hurt yields, “Yields on Pioneer 32T16 and 34T07 have been especially good.”Listen to the complete report from May Gumz under the crops tag on this web site.

Unknown group makes “unrealistic” demand for release of Fox News journalists, creating “Iraq-style” situation

first_imgNews Reporters Without Borders voiced deep concern about kidnapped Fox New journalists Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig after a hitherto unknown group calling itself the Holy Jihad Brigades today claimed responsibility for their abduction and, in a video showing their two captives, demanded that the United States release “Muslim prisoners” within 72 hours.“The situation has changed with their kidnapping being claimed by an unknown group that is making absolutely unrealistic demands,” the press freedom organisation said. “This resembles the methods used in the cases of journalists abducted in Baghdad. We are now in an Iraq-style situation and we need a massive campaign for their release.”Reporters Without Borders continued: “Ten journalists have been kidnapped in the past two years in the Palestinian Territories but almost all of them were freed within hours. This is the first time a kidnapping has lasted so long and a demand has been made. We are nonetheless relieved to see that these two journalists are still alive and we reiterate our support for their families.”The organisation added: “For more than a year, we have regularly drawn the attention of the Palestinian authorities to the growing dangers to which local and foreign journalists working in the Gaza Strip are exposed. It is now their duty to do everything possible to ensure that these two journalists are quickly reunited with their families.” PalestineMiddle East – North Africa to go further News A previously unknown militant group has claimed responsibility for the abduction of two Fox New journalists nine days ago and has demanded the release of Muslim prisoners by the United States. Reporters Without Borders is very worried and calls for a massive campaign on behalf of the two journalists.

Liverpool Loses in Rose Bowl Soccer

first_imgSports Liverpool Loses in Rose Bowl Soccer From STAFF REPORTS Published on Thursday, July 28, 2016 | 12:07 pm Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Photo courtesy Rose Bowl StadiumLiverpool lost to Premier League rival Chelsea FC Wednesday, 1-0, in a friendly pre-season International Champions Match which saw Chelsea’s Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas being sent off after a bad foul on Liverpool newcomer Ragnar Klavan.Fabregas got his marching orders about 70 minutes into the game after sliding into Klavan with his studs up.Four Liverpool players had already been shown yellow cards by that time. Chelsea’s Gary Cahill also got a yellow card.Chelsea’s new head coach Antonio Conte apologized for Fabregas’s foul and said the match was more competitive that they had expected.Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp said Klavan had escaped unscathed from the challenge but said another recruit, Marko Grujic, was in hospital after receiving a knock to the head in the first half.The match’s only goal was a header scored by Gary Cahill, connecting from a corner by Fabregas, 10 minutes into Cahill’s first outing since England’s defeat against Iceland at Euro 2016.Liverpool obviously lacked a cutting edge up front with striker Daniel Sturridge deemed unfit.The team’s best chance came in the first half when Chelsea’s Brazilian winger Willian Borges da Silva gave away a throw inside his own half and left-back Alberto Moreno was played in down the left. Moreno cut it back for Roberto Firmino, who got the ball stuck under his feet and couldn’t pull the trigger.The Rose Bowl said about 53,000 watched the ICC match, part of an exhibition tournament involving 17 clubs playing on four different continents, all tuning up for their league seasons.The Reds’ new recruit, Georginio Wijnaldum, was left out in the game.

A lifelong Texan, Brian received his master’s degree from Amberton University in Garland. in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Headlines, News September 23, 2014 1,579 Views About Author: Brian Honea The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save  Print This Post The burden of student loan debt is preventing potential home buyers from starting households, which in turn is hindering overall economic growth, according to Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) director Richard Cordray in remarks made on September 23.”I believe we are standing at a precipice when it comes to student loan debt in this country,” Cordray said. “That load has reached $1.2 trillion, second only to mortgages as a category of consumer finance. This burden is growing fast and the issues that flow from it are central to public policy in America.”The rising cost of tuition is causing higher student loan debt, which is in turn causing more borrowers to default. Cordray said CFPB estimates that more than seven million Americans are in default on more than $100 billion in student loan balances. For those who default at a young age, the black mark on their credit report may prevent them from buying a home – and might even keep them from getting a job, Cordray said.”The domino effect of student loan debt is real, and it is spreading,” Cordray said. “It is hard to erase this debt quickly – paying it back may take many long years and prevent people from achieving other financial milestones.”Thought leaders in the industry have long believed that reform is necessary in order to reduce skyrocketing student loan debt and free up the finances of would-be homebuyers.”If we are truly committed to promoting homeownership for generations to come, it is time to address the more than $1.2 trillion of federal student loan debt that is crippling the finances of future homebuyers and keeping them from experiencing the promise of homeownership,” Five Star Institute President and CEO Ed Delgado said last week in his remarks to industry leaders at the 2014 Five Star Conference and Expo. “If Washington wants to make a real difference for the future of our children – we must reform student education financing.”Cordray stated that young people are not forming new households at the same rate as they used to, and the decrease in household formation is preventing economic growth. Increased student debt is causing millennials to live with their parents until a later age, or to share living arrangements with peers.”The homeownership rate for young people peaked before the financial crisis and by the first quarter of this year was down more than 15 percent,” Cordray said. “This is very troubling because most first-time homeowners are young people who drive the market for home purchases.”The effects of heavy student debt are not felt in just the housing sector, Cordray said.”Student debt burdens can get in the way of young people buying a car, starting a small business, or saving for retirement,” Cordray said. “We are deeply concerned about how debt influences career choices by acting as a barrier to public service for a rising share of student loan borrowers.”Tools are available now to assist consumers with managing their student loan debt, Cordray said. CFPB has partnered with the Department of Education to develop a set of online tools known as “Paying for College,” which helps better educate students and their families as to what their financing options are when deciding how to cover educational costs. CFPB also offers answers to common questions it is asked regarding consumer finances (including student loans) in a feature known as “Ask CFPB.” Notably, Cordray said, CFPB now handles individual consumer complaints regarding student loans. Also, many who work in public service positions are eligible for student loan forgiveness, which “can enhance the affordability of public service careers,” Cordray said.Cordray announced that two organizations, AmeriCorps and the Peace Corps, are both signing the pledge to help consumers handle student debt. CFPB includes employees who are alumni of both organizations.”They are pledging to talk to employees about their options for student loan forgiveness, verify that they work for a public service organization, and check in with them annually to make sure they stay on track,” Cordray said. “We have also created toolkits for employers and employees to help them understand how to take advantage of these benefits. We want everyone eligible to be signing up for the loan forgiveness that federal law provides, which they are earning by virtue of their public service work. These are great first steps toward that objective.” Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / CFPB: Student Loan Debt Holding Back Homeownership, Economy The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Tagged with: AmeriCorps CFPB Department of Education Homeownership Peace Corps Student Loan Debt Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily AmeriCorps CFPB Department of Education Homeownership Peace Corps Student Loan Debt 2014-09-23 Brian Honea Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles Previous: Home Prices Continue to Gain, But at Miniscule Rate Next: FSC Chairman Questions CFPB’s Data Collection Methods last_img read more
