Long may [the brothers] continue.”But their absence won’t be mourned for that long, it seems, as there are plenty of other high-octane yacht parties to fill the gap in the social whirl.Last night, for example, Bruce Ritchie, chief executive of Residential Land, threw a party aboard his yacht Melody Nelson II, followed by an intriguing “Ooh La La” soirée hosted by a group of Russian oligarchs in a top-secret location, rumoured to be a “very wild affair”.And tonight – if anyone is still standing – a property individual with £100m of residential property assets is whisking a few close friends off to Monte Carlo by helicopter for a private function.However, don’t be fooled that the Cannes property circus is just a jolly: “a lot of serious business” is also being done in the South of France, according to a second, entirely sober, delegate.Speaking from his seat in the sunshine at an outdoor restaurant overlooking La Croisette, he told The Capitalist: “If you took even just 1 per cent of all the deals that are being done in this restaurant as we speak, you would be very wealthy indeed.” GIRL POWERINTERNATIONAL Women’s Day was marked with quite some style at Nomura, the Japanese bank that hit the headlines recently for appointing its first female chief financial officer, Junko Nakagawa.At the end of the working day, 100 of the firm’s staff headed to the eleventh floor of the office for an evening with fashion designer and businesswoman Amanda Wakeley, with introductions made by Paul Norris, global head of equity research and co-head of the Women in Nomura Network.Wakeley spoke candidly to Nomura employees about her struggle to build her enterprise, including her darkest hour in 2009 when she had to buy back her business and save 50 jobs in the UK.“Businesswomen must be in complete control of their business decisions,” she told the crowd of bankers, “and not rely on someone else to do it for them”.As a finale, six of Nomura’s brave female staff – Joo Lee, Omotoni Osibodu, Mariela Missailidis, Edleen John, Charisma Patel and Ksenia Shebavalenko – took to the office catwalk to model Wakeley’s latest collection, empowered by the designer’s passion for “creating looks that help women in business”.OUT WITH THE OLDDON’T be caught out when HM Revenue & Customs abolishes the maximum list price for company cars on 6 April in an attempt to net more income tax.Under the new rules, total tax paid by City executives and their employers will rocket by 182 per cent for a company car with a list price of £222,000 such as a Ferrari 612 – a total tax bill of £50,000.But the real danger is for drivers of secondhand supercars – you can pick up a 2005 model Ferrari 612 for about £65,000, but as a company car the tax bill will be based on its list price of £177,000. So if in doubt, buy new – as David Heaton, consulting partner at accountant Baker Tilly, advised: “Paying £40,000 of tax and National Insurance a year to drive a car worth £65,000 is not very attractive.”CHRISTCHURCH-GOERSAN update on the cycle ride planned by Matthew Whitaker, programme manager at Barclays, to raise money for the victims of the New Zealand earthquake.The group will now ride from the New Zealand Memorial at Hyde Park Corner to Christ Church, Oxford – not Christchurch, Bournemouth, as originally planned – reducing the trip by 50 miles to make the 22 May event “more inclusive”.Oxford is also fitting because Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand was founded by members of Christ Church, Oxford in the mid-nineteenth century. “It seems particularly poignant that as Christchurch in New Zealand starts to rebuild, the bike ride ends where that city began more than 150 years ago,” Whitaker said.To donate to the cause, see INVESTINGFANCY a socially responsible investment (SRI) at no extra cost?

RBS 6 Nations: What next for Stuart Lancaster?

first_imgRugby works in cycles. This is not to say that you must kill off the remnants of systems gone by like some sort of withered husk. Experience is valuable and whether or not faces fit as well as they used to, keeping them around will not turn Twickenham into a vespiary. However, you must appreciate that at certain periods you must look to the end of the cycle rather than the interim periods.So Stuart Lancaster will have time to think. He will be glad of it. He will not be haunted by a crippling failure because although it stings, he is ahead of schedule. Lancaster is the type of man who works to schedules. He worked hard to get where he is and so appreciates the minutiae of every step; the slavish attention to detail may be dull, but it is necessary and Lancaster at least fosters the image that he is in love with all elements of role, so lovingly detailed in his A4 black diary.Future: England’s young stars will look to the Argentina tourIt may sound like this man is being painted as some genius, capable of anything given time. Such notions have never truly been voiced. Yet when he was first under pressure as England coach some waited and he pulled off the victory against New Zealand. Because of that he has been afforded more time and almost won a Grand Slam. In truth, the end of his cycle is the World Cup in England, so even then he will not seriously be wanting to peak until closer to that time.So he will rest. The Six Nations brouhaha will subside and he will slip back close to home to plan ahead. The best thing for England would be if Lancaster is afforded the luxury to do this, rather than making him stroke to get there. He must also convince himself to see this break through. Put Team England on standby for now and jolt it back to life in time for the summer tour.England and Lancaster have worked hard and the disappointment, though not as crushing as some would think, will be just another spur as England jet off to Argentina, the next lap of their swim towards World Cup 2015. England at sea: The team look lost after a thrashing from the Welsh, but Lancaster will be pleased with progressBy Alan DymockSUCCESS IS a powerful force. Like a riptide it can carry you away, making it impossible to consider any other elements while you swim against the puissant pull of the moment. When it stops, though, and you finally urge your head above water, you realise that you are miles from the point you thought you would be at.Stuart Lancaster is not stranded.Consoling: Lancaster with Mako VunipolaHowever, after months of trying to play down the chances of his England side after shellacking the All Blacks and stringing three very good Six Nations victories together, he was ultimately swimming against the tide. Losing a title on the last day would rankle more than most but such was the manner of the defeat to Wales at the Millennium Stadium there is near palpable hurt rippling through England rugby fraternity.However grounded Lancaster tried to make his team appear and however impressive he made the opposition sound, it would always stand in stark contrast to the reality that is still so fresh in the mind.He would never stand up and scream it – every public engagement is expertly choreographed by the English management, one of the hallmarks of this progressive regime – but privately, surely he must want to state the obvious: England have two years coming up that are more important than this solitary, albeit, chastening loss.In some senses the feeling of being lost and exposed at the Millennium Stadium, with the elements whipping up around them almost as harshly as the Welsh players scratching towards the line and with the crowd stifling them with song, will be filed under ‘Experiences To Learn From’ in the Lancaster files.

How did your neighbor vote?

first_img Apopka voting trends similar to US popular voteTuesday’s vote count is technically still unofficial, but we all know the likely outcome.  Donald Trump has won the Presidency with 290 Electoral Votes. But Trump only received 47.5% of the popular vote vs 47.7% for Hillary Clinton, nationwide. The vote split in Florida was 49% Trump and 48% Clinton.Tip O’Neill, former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, is famous for the phrase, “All politics is local.”With that in mind, The Apopka Voice is going through the data supplied by Bill Cowles, the Orange County Supervisor of Elections, to see how Apopka voted.Here are the vote splits for the 18 precincts in Northwest Orange County.  You know how you voted, but do you know how your neighbor voted?

CFDG gives cautious welcome to new Gift Aid scheme

first_imgCFDG gives cautious welcome to new Gift Aid scheme The Charity Finance Directors’ Group today gave a cautious welcome to the new Gift Aid scheme for admissions fees, announced in the pre-budget report, but expressed disappointment that the scheme had to be changed at all. CFDG have been working with the Inland Revenue to develop the new ‘additional giving’ model, after it was announced in last year’s pre-budget report that the ‘day membership’ scheme would be phased out.Shirley Scott, Chief Executive of CFDG today said, “Whilst we welcome the introduction of the additional giving model, we would have preferred it if the Government had left the scheme alone. Gift Aid on admission fees provided a valuable source of income for many of our members, particularly small independent museums. Whilst the new scheme will be of some benefit, it will still lead to a loss of revenue for many charities.”For further information, please contact: Shirley Scott or Sophie Chapman at CFDG on Tel: 020 7793 1400Notes to Editor: 1. The changes originally emerged in the detail of the chancellor’s November 2003 pre-budget report. The phasing out of the scheme would stop museums and other conservation and heritage charities from claiming Gift Aid on visitor admissions. At present, charities can operate a “day membership” scheme, where instead of paying for admission visitors make a donation, which attracts Gift Aid. 2. The Charity Finance Directors’ Group was set up in 1987 and is an umbrella group that specialises in helping charities to manage their finance-related functions. 3. CFDG’s 1000 plus members are responsible for the finances of charities with a wide variety of income levels. Over 60% of the top 500 charities are members of the CFDG. Between them our members manage some £10 Billion in charity income per year.Sophie ChapmanPolicy and Campaigns OfficerTel: 0207 793 1400Fax: 0207 793 [email protected] now offers a specialised daily news service for Charity Finance Directors.

Legacy income low but rising for arts organisations, says report

first_img Legacy income among UK arts organisations remains low but is on the rise with more organisations reporting significant annual totals, according to the Legacy Fundraising in the Arts 2016 report from Arts Quarter and Legacy Foresight.The report compares its findings with the 2010 joint report, and is compiled from the survey responses of 116 organisations. It shows that two fifths of the arts organisations surveyed in 2016 (38%) had received gifts in wills over the last three years: a figure directly comparable to 2010. Two thirds of those organisations had received less than five bequests over that period while 80% had received less than 10, again very similar to the 2010 findings according to the report.Of the 38% of respondents receiving gifts in wills, 70% earned less than £25,000 per annum in legacy income. However the survey suggests that slightly more organisations are now achieving significant legacy incomes. Over the last three years, five organisations received income averaging £250,000 or more a year, representing 12% compared to 5% in 2010, while one averaged over £1 million a year.In the last three years, ten of the arts organisations that took part in the survey received gifts over £100,000 – receiving 20 such gifts in total. Two-fifths of those surveyed were left assets in people’s wills: primarily artistic assets such as artworks or archive materials. On average, two thirds of the people leaving a bequest to arts organisations were known supporters.Only two-fifths of those surveyed promoted legacy giving however, as was the case in 2010. Large arts charities, with a turnover of £1m+), were the biggest legacy promoters (58% vs. 40% overall) with lack of capacity, resources, and other priorities the main reasons given for not promoting legacy giving.Legacy fundraising & promotionHalf of the arts organisations that did promote legacy giving reported that they had no budget allocated to legacy fundraising in their current financial year, while half of those that did have budget had £2,500 or less available to them and only 8% spent more than £5,000 a year on legacy marketing.Since 2010, the survey showed a growth in legacy promotion on arts organisations’ websites and inclusion in general email marketing, with a decline in the use of postal campaigns. Compared to 2010, there has also been a decline in face-to-face approaches (32% vs. 19%) but an increase in legacy events (14% vs. 23%).For the first time this year, the survey asked arts organisations for their top three priority targets for legacy fundraising, revealing a focus on individual donors, particularly those giving more than £1,000 a year (77%). Other high priorities were members (47%), audiences (40%) and trustees and other senior volunteers (53%). Web and on-site visitors were seen as secondary targets, with little emphasis on the public at large, or on general volunteers.However, while legacy fundraising was low, the report shows that it may be beginning to rise with several of those surveyed about to start implementing a legacy promotion strategy and activity for the first time. Just over a quarter felt it would be significant or very significant, with a third seeing it as an emerging activity that would play a key role in the next five years.

Sarkozy accused of breaking promises after he decides to celebrate 14 July with press freedom predator

first_img News Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today at the announcement that Syrian President Bashar el-Assad will be accompanying President Nicolas Sarkozy on the official podium during the French national holiday celebrations in Paris on 14 July.“Nicolas Sarkozy is breaking one commitment after another,” the press freedom organisation said. “After welcoming Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi with open arms in Paris on 10 December, Human Rights Day, and singing the praises of the Tunisian regime in April, he is now going to celebrate 14 July, which is supposed to be in honour of independence and freedom, next to the president of one of the world’s most repressive regimes.“How far is Sarkozy ready to go to promote his Mediterranean Union project? What new concessions will he make to the Libyan leader to get him to support this project? When he was running for president, Sarkozy put human rights at the heart of his programme. He said that, with him as president, talks would be much firmer especially, as regards Russia and China. Today we are far, very far, from these commitments. President Sarkozy, like others before him, is pursing a realpolitik at the expense of the values France is supposed to embody.”The Mediterranean Union project, which aims to reinforce the already existing cooperation between the Mediterranean countries and the European Union, will be officially created during a special summit in Paris on 13 July. Many Arab counties, including Lybia and Syria, have expressed misgivings about the project.After being received by Sarkozy in Paris last December, Gaddafi said during an interview for France 2 television that human rights had not been raised in his talks with the French president. This was denied by the Elysée Palace.During a state visit to Tunisia in April, Sarkozy said, “I do not see why I should take it upon myself to give lessons” and even went so far as to congratulate President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali for the progress Tunisia had supposedly made in respect for rights and freedoms.Four journalists and three cyber-dissidents are currently detained in Adra prison in Damascus as a result of a campaign of arrests of human rights activists. In Tunisia, journalist Slim Boukhdir is currently serving a one-year prison sentence.Assad, Gaddafi and Ben Ali are all on the Reporters Without Borders list of “Predators of Press Freedom.” Receive email alerts February 3, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Follow the news on Syria to go further News News March 8, 2021 Find out more SyriaMiddle East – North Africa center_img News Organisation Damascus TV presenter arrested under cyber-crime law Wave of Kurdish arrests of Syrian journalists June 12, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Sarkozy accused of breaking promises after he decides to celebrate 14 July with press freedom predator SyriaMiddle East – North Africa Toll of ten years of civil war on journalists in Syria March 12, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information last_img read more

Libya still extremely dangerous for journalists

first_imgNews News to go further Libya’s journalists are still among the leading victims of the political turmoil and violence that have been a constant ever since Col. Gaddafi’s overthrow in the 2011 revolution.Armed clashes are continuing despite an attempt by the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) to broker a ceasefire and talks between the various political players and armed factions two weeks ago in the remote town of Ghadames. June 24, 2020 Find out more RSF_en Receive email alerts LibyaMiddle East – North Africa Help by sharing this information On Libyan revolution’s 10th anniversary, authorities urged to guarantee press freedom Organisation News LibyaMiddle East – North Africa February 23, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders condemns the murder of Al-Tayeb Issa, one of the founders of privately-owned satellite TV station Tuareg Tumsat, in southwestern Libya on 5 October and radio presenter Motassem Al-Warfalli’s murder three days later in the eastern city of Benghazi.Issa’s bullet-riddled body was found on the road between Ghat and Obari, where he was from. His car had been set on fire. A colleague said that Issa, who was the TV station’s financial director, was a respected and discreet person who had never received threats.Obari has seen armed clashes between members of the Tebu and Tuareg communities since mid-September. They began when Tuaregs, who reportedly came from another region and support the armed Islamist coalition known as Operation Libya Dawn, tried to take over Obari’s main gas station, until then protected by a local Tebu force.Warfalli, a young presenter on Radio Sawt Libya Al-Watan, was murdered by gunmen who fired on him from a car and then sped away. He was known as a supporter of Ansar Al-Sharia, a group regarded as a terrorist organization by the Libyan government and the United States.Although the motives for these murders are still unknown, Reporters Without Borders does not rule out the possibility that they were linked to the victims’ journalistic work and urges the Libyan authorities to carry out swift investigations that take account of this possibility.This duty was stressed in the UN Human Rights Council’s resolution of 22 September on the “Safety of journalists”.It urged Libya, like other countries, to conduct “impartial, speedy, thorough, independent and effective investigations into all alleged violence against journalists and media workers falling within their jurisdiction, to bring perpetrators including, inter alia, those who command, conspire to commit, aid and abet or cover up such crimes to justice, and to ensure that victims and their families have access to appropriate remedies.”Reporters Without Borders reiterates its deep concern about the fate of Libya’s journalists, who are finding it increasingly difficult to practice their profession without fear of being persecuted, attacked or murdered.Media still being targetedAn armed group attacked Al-Midan FM, a privately-owned radio station in Zawiya, a town 40 km west of Tripoli, on the night of 9 October, removing its transmitter, other equipment and material and badly damaging some of its installations. The station had continued to broadcast political and social programmes despite getting many threats.In a statement on its Facebook page, the station accused those behind the “terrorist and cowardly attack” of wanting to “silence free media and take them over.” No group has so far claimed responsibility.Mo’az Al-Thaleeb, a presenter on the privately-owned satellite TV station Al-Assima, was kidnapped in the central Tripoli district of Salah El-Din on the evening of 10 October and was held for two days before being release. A member of the family said he was held at Al-Yarmouk military camp, which is controlled by Tripoli-based revolutionary militias and by Operation Libya Dawn. Al-Thaleeb, who is also studying social sciences, had previously received threats in connection with his journalistic work.In recent months, several radio stations have stopped broadcasting certain programmes, especially political ones, or have stopped broadcasting altogether. Many newspapers, such as Al-Mayadeen in Tripoli and Al-Ahwal in Benghazi, have also stopped publishing for fear of being attacked by armed groups.Such decisions by news media to censor themselves or stop working reinforce the feeling of fear within the media throughout Libya. The increasing frequency with which journalists flee the country after threats, attacks or murder attempts also highlights the level of danger for those who continue to work at great risk to themselves.Reporters Without Borders reiterates the fundamental importance of freedom of information in any democratic society, especially one in transition such as Libya. Despite rampant political instability and violence, it is vital that all political and military actors should respect this freedom, one enshrined in article 14 of Libya’s Constitutional Declaration, in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and in other treaties and conventions to which Libya is a party.Libya’s media personnel must also respect the basic principles of journalistic ethics and conduct by covering events as professionally and impartially as possible, with a constant concern for independence, transparency and objectivity, the bases of good journalism.
