Storm clouds gather as G20 leaders meet

first_img Storm clouds gather as G20 leaders meet Tags: NULL Show Comments ▼ whatsapp Group of Twenty in Seoul clash on growth, currencies and tradeIreland moves ever closer to the brink as bailout fears mountOil price hits a fresh 25-month high of $88 a barrel on China demandIRISH ten-year bond yields shot to their highest level since the founding of the euro yesterday, closing at 8.6 per cent, as German chancellor Angela Merkel used a speech at the G20 summit to suggest that bondholders should be on the hook for losses rather than taxpayers if the country defaults.“We cannot keep constantly explaining to our voters and our citizens why the taxpayer should bear the cost of certain risks and not those people who have earned a lot of money from taking those risks,” she said to the gathering of world leaders in Seoul.Ireland’s debt is fully covered until the middle of next year, meaning it will not have to borrow from the bond market at the current high rates. But Merkel’s insistence that the new EU bailout agreement should force private investors to shoulder more of the costs has spooked the market.The International Monetary Fund (IMF) said yesterday that Ireland had not yet asked for help with its debt, but the prospect of a bailout looms if the republic cannot convince markets of its credit-worthiness. “The most likely outcome now is that Ireland will need to receive assistance from the EU/IMF,” said Gary Jenkins at Evolution, who estimated a funding requirement of around €43bn (£36.4bn) over two years.Escalating fears over Ireland came as the price of oil soared to levels not seen since 2008, with US crude topping $88 (£55) a barrel this week.Oil continued to hover close to its two-year high yesterday after rising 10 per cent since the end of October. The Organization of the Petroleum-Exporting Countries (Opec) forecast strong demand from fast-growing emerging markets. But rising energy costs are likely to provide an additional headwind for advanced economies still struggling with the ongoing fall-out from the financial crisis. Global growth was high on the agenda as talks entered their second day in Seoul but hopes for a resolution to global capital imbalances and currency disputes were already fading. Prime Minister David Cameron used a speech at Peking University this week to warn of a “dangerous tidal wave of money” crossing the world from indebted nations to those with huge surpluses. But there was little sign of a response. Yesterday saw the US’s proposal for current account surplus limits removed from draft documents and a Chinese ministry of commerce official declare that America “should not force others to take medicine for its own disease”.Advanced and developing economies have locked horns over currency policy at the summit, with China critical of the Federal Reserve’s recent re-launch of its quantitative easing (QE) programme. The Fed has committed to buy $600bn worth of treasuries in an attempt to stimulate the sluggish US economy, a move that former Fed chair Alan Greenspan claims amounts to an attempt to devalue the dollar. The US wants the G20 resolution to include a clause condemning the “competitive undervaluation” of currencies, in a clear reference to China’s longstanding policy of holding down the yuan to boost exports. In an open letter to G20 leaders just before the start of the summit, President Barack Obama wrote: “Just as the United States must change, so too must those economies that have previously relied on exports to offset weaknesses in their own demand.” He added that measures were needed to “reverse significant undervaluation” in certain currencies.But America’s position, coming so quick on the heels of its QE announcement, has prompted claims of hypocrisy from developing nations.The currency row threatened to overshadow other pressing issues on the G20 agenda, such as how to tackle the issue of sovereign default.

Fundraising most important skill for facing the future say small charity leaders

first_imgFundraising most important skill for facing the future say small charity leaders Melanie May | 5 December 2017 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis43 Small charity leaders believe they most need fundraising skills and experience if they are to meet future challenges, according to a survey by The Garfield Weston Foundation.The Garfield Weston Foundation surveyed small charity leaders to mark the opening of the 2018 Weston Charity Awards, and found that 65% identified fundraising skills as the most needed, while over half (54%) say strategy development is a much-needed skill to help their organisation thrive in future.The findingsWhich of the following skills or relevant experience do you think are most needed to meet your future challenges?Fundraising – 64.9%Strategy development – 53.85%Building partnerships with the commercial sector – 48.29%Branding and communications – 46.15%Staff development and performance management – 41.88%IT & digital – 40.60%Financial – 37.18%Governance – 32.91%Building partnerships within the not for profit sector – 31.62%Other – 11.97%Expertise in organisational mergers – 8.97%Estates and facilities management – 7.69%The research showed that charities expect to help more people in 2018 but without real income growth.Less than half (39%) of charities feel their staff and volunteers have all the skills required to prosper in the next five years and over a fifth (21%) said their organisation had spent no time whatsoever on seminars, courses, away days or working with coaches or mentors in order to develop leadership skills.77% also have no plan for dealing with a surge in demand for services; 72% aren’t formally prepared to deal with potential policy changes that could have a significant impact on resources, and 64% have no agreed plan in place should they need to deal with the departure of key staff. In fact, the research shows that three quarters of leaders of small and medium sized charities are spending little or no time on long-term planning and strategy, 62% spent just a few days in the past year in dedicated planning and strategy sessions whilst 13% put no time aside at all.Philippa Charles, Director of the Garfield Weston Foundation, said: Advertisement Tagged with: Awards fundraising Research / statisticscenter_img “The fact that so many charities are optimistic about helping more people in spite of financial pressures is a testament to the dedication and drive of charity leaders. However, our research shows that long-term planning is suffering. That’s exactly why the Weston Charity Awards exist – to provide a year-long programme that connects ambitious charity CEOs with a bespoke team of top business leaders.”The Garfield Weston Foundation is encouraging charities to enter its 2018 awards, which offer the opportunity to win £6,500 and a year’s free leadership coaching. Twenty charities will win a Weston Charity Award in 2018 – the fourth consecutive year of programme expansion. Each winner will benefit from a year of intensive leadership coaching through the Pilotlight Programme along with £6,500 in unrestricted funding.The awards are open to any charity with an annual income of less than £5 million that provides frontline services in the fields of community, welfare and youth. The Weston Charity Awards were first established in the North East of England in 2014 and have since expanded to the Midlands and for the first time this year to Wales.  137 total views,  1 views today  138 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis43 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.

Sirias/os reaccionan a amenazas de bombardeo

first_imgPor Karin LeukefeldDamasco, SiriaLa noche antes del 12 de abril estaba en calma. Un esperado ataque de las Fuerzas Armadas de EUA y sus aliados en Siria aún no había ocurrido. Pero muchas personas en Damasco y en todo el país esperan que el lenguaje hostil y amenazante de los líderes de gobiernos occidentales – como lo expresó el presidente Donald Trump – y sus diplomáticos en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU, sea seguido por misiles, bombas y destrucción.“Ya han publicado listas de objetivos que quieren atacar”, nos dijo Nabil M., un ingeniero agrícola retirado. Su vecino Hussam, quien trabajó para Mercedes-Benz en Siria, asume que las Fuerzas Armadas de EUA “podrían bombardear las telecomunicaciones, la televisión siria, el palacio presidencial, los ministerios, los puentes y las instalaciones militares” en Damasco y sus alrededores.Hussam, encogiéndose de hombros en respuesta al comentario de que la mayoría de los objetivos que citó son instituciones civiles cuyo bombardeo está prohibido por el derecho internacional, dijo: “¿Qué hicieron en Mosul en Irak, en Deir ez-Zor y en Rakka aquí? El ejército de EUA no respeta el derecho internacional”.Heike W. es una empresaria de Alemania que ha vivido en Siria durante más de 30 años. Ella dice que una guerra inminente será “una confrontación estadounidense-rusa”, ubicada en Siria. Esto es internacional, enfatiza, y se trata de controlar las rutas comerciales y los recursos, señalando que el nuevo proyecto Ruta de Seda de China desafía a Occidente. Heike está convencida de que “EUA y las demás potencias occidentales no permitirán que esta región quede fuera de su control”.Los opositores al gobierno sirio no hablan de eso, pero silenciosamente podrían esperar que un ataque de Occidente pueda “cortarle la cabeza” al régimen de Assad que odian. Otros, sin embargo, temen una mayor destrucción y una extensión de la guerra y el caos.El ejército, el gobierno y el presidente sirio están en alerta, aunque los detalles [de sus planes] son desconocidos. El 12 de abril, los ministros de Asuntos Exteriores, Walid Muallem y Ali Akbar Welajati, se reunieron en Damasco para discutir una cooperación más estrecha entre Siria e Irán. Welajati es el asesor de política exterior del ayatolá Ali Khamenei, el líder religioso de Irán.Misiles israelíes matan a 14 en la base siriaAl menos cuatro soldados iraníes [y otras 10 personas] murieron en un ataque israelí contra una base militar siria en Palmyra, en la provincia de Homs, el 10 de abril. Los aviones de combate de Israel atacaron la base desde el espacio aéreo libanés, en violación del derecho internacional. Los sistemas de defensa aérea sirios destruyeron seis de los ocho misiles lanzados por aviones de combate israelíes.El gabinete de seguridad israelí se reunió el 12 de abril para analizar la situación en Siria y las posibles operaciones militares occidentales contra el país. Los miembros del gabinete dijeron que Israel debería ser tan parte de un ataque conjunto de Occidente como lo es Arabia Saudita.Es probable que Alemania ya haya marcado y documentado posibles objetivos utilizando su avión de reconocimiento Tornado y los aviones de vigilancia AWACS, bajo la “alianza anti-EI” liderada por EUA. Siria es como un libro abierto para los observadores de la OTAN.Un representante del gobierno sirio en Alepo, que quiere permanecer en el anonimato, expresó su incomprensión sobre la actitud del gobierno alemán en una entrevista con Junge Welt. Dijo que Alemania es un faro cultural y económico, y que presta ayuda humanitaria. Pero en el Medio Oriente, enfatizó, Berlín sigue a Estados Unidos e Israel.Las sanciones económicas contra Siria, dijo el funcionario, perjudicaron no solo a los sirios, sino también a la economía alemana. Sin embargo, los líderes alemanes están sembrando hostilidad hacia Siria. Él pregunta: “¿Qué quieren de nosotros? ¿Quieres mi mesa, mi chaqueta? Puedo darles ambas si las necesitan. Por lo que he oído, la población alemana no quiere guerra, ni siquiera en Siria. ¿Por qué el gobierno alemán hace lo contrario de lo que quiere el pueblo?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Journalists are victims of violence by security forces and targeted attacks

first_img IraqMiddle East – North Africa September 29, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Journalists are victims of violence by security forces and targeted attacks Receive email alerts December 16, 2020 Find out more RSF_en to go further Follow the news on Iraq News February 15, 2021 Find out more Organisation RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace”center_img News News Help by sharing this information Three jailed reporters charged with “undermining national security” Reporters Without Borders deplores a targeted attack on Alaa Mohsen, the host of the programme “Liqa Sakhen” on state-run Al-Iraqiya television, who was badly injured by a bomb placed underneath his car as he was about to leave his home in the Baghdad suburb of Saydiya on the morning of 27 September to go to work. Rushed to the Yarmouk district hospital, he was reported to be in a critical condition yesterday.It was the third targeted attack on a TV presenter since the United States announced the withdrawal of its last combat troops on 31 August (http://en.rsf.org/irak-second-targeted-killing-of-a-tv-08-09-2010,38320.html). Safaa Al-Dine Abdul Hameed of Al-Mosuliyah was shot dead in Mosul, in the northern province of Ninawa, on 8 September while Riad Al-Saray, another Al-Iraqiya presenter, was gunned down in Baghdad on 7 September.The current climate of terror and impunity has also seen an increase in violence against journalists by members of the Iraqi security forces.In one of the latest cases, reporter and cameraman Bashar Al-Badrani of satellite TV station Al-Sharqiya was the victim of an extremely violent attack by members of the Iraqi army while on his way to a news conference in Mosul on 23 September. After opening fire on his car, the soldiers forced him and his driver to get out and began to beat and insult them. They hit Al-Badrani even more when he told them he was a journalist.Several journalists were beaten or roughed up by bodyguards assigned to Khalaf Abdel Samad, the head of the Iraqi Martyrs Foundation, while trying to cover a seminar he gave on 22 September in the southern city of Al-Nasiriya.The bodyguards used unexpected violence when Samad told them to remove the journalists. An Al-Fiha cameraman was hit as he was filming and one of the bodyguards tried to smash his equipment. Three TV reporters – Jassem Khalaf of Al-Ahd, Mohammed Saadoun of Al-Ahwar and Marwa Al-Shammary of Al-Fiha – were also hit while Hazem Habib of the dayly Al-Sabah was dragged from the room.Several journalists were beaten by police at a checkpoint in the Baghdad district of Yarmouk on the night of 21 September as they were returning from covering a discussion seminar involving representatives of the various political coalitions in Baghdad.After stopping their car and telling them to get out, the police forced them to lie face down on the ground and began hitting and insulting them. Both dayly Sawt Baghdad news director Karim Al-Shammary and a Kurdistan TV cameraman sustained facial injuries. The police continued to hit them despite being shown press cards. Such a climate of impunity is undermining the possibilities of developing a free and independent press in Iraq. Those responsible for this violence must be identified and brought to trial. Reporters Without Borders also reiterates its desire for the adoption of a proposed law for the protection of journalists which has languished in parliament since it was submitted in September 2009 (http://en.rsf.org/iraq-urgent-need-for-parliament-to-08-04-2010,36963.html).

Second day of Chirac’s visit – with head of company that is selling police equipment for use in repression

first_img ChinaAsia – Pacific Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes News Receive email alerts April 27, 2021 Find out more China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison ChinaAsia – Pacific News News Help by sharing this information As French President Jacques Chirac headed today to Wuhan, a major centre for French investment in China, on the second day of his state visit, Reporters Without Borders drew his attention to the fact that the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company EADS, whose co-CEO, Louis Gallois, is accompanying him, is on its way to becoming the main supplier of communications and surveillance equipment for the Beijing police during the 2008 Olympics.”Like the French company Thalès, which did not hesitate to sell China antennae that enable increased jamming of foreign radio stations, EADS is signing contracts with the Chinese police that contain no safeguards,” Reporters Without Borders said.”The EADS equipment could be used for political repression before, during and after the Olympic Games,” the press freedom organisation warned. “Beijing’s justification for the current crackdown on dissent is the need to ensure the games are safe. EADS is meanwhile trying to get a larger share of the Chinese security market, worth billions of euros. It is time the French authorities, who are shareholders in EADS, took a position on this.”In the light of recent UN reports that have highlighted the regular use of torture by the Chinese police as well as other issues, it is unacceptable that a European company should sell equipment to the Chinese security forces without any restrictions. The European Union should consider how to ban the sale of these products under the arms embargo imposed after the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre.EADS’ projects seem to have the support of the French authorities, especially the interior ministry. David Skuli, the head of the departmental directorate for public security, spoke at a conference organised by EADS in Beijing in May 2005 on “Territorial Security and Security Measures during the Olympic Games.”EADS has already sold TETRA communications systems to the Beijing city government as part of the security preparations for the 2008 games. More than 30,000 police and municipal employees will be supplied with European equipment. EADS Secure Networks hopes to get a large part of the Olympic Games market, which is also being eyed by US corporations including the SAIC consortium, as well as Australian and Israeli companies.EADS has been actively taking part in the Chinese Police Salon for the past two years, offering a global solution to Beijing’s security problems. Patrick Jourdan of EADS Defence and Communications Systems put things very clearly last year: “When concentrating on the 2008 Olympic Games, EADS has not intention of imposing its own ideas about security on the organisers. What our company wants to do is help the Chinese authorities to define and install their own security system.”EADS will also be prominent at the China International Exhibition on Police Equipment and Anti-Terrorism Technology (CIPATE) being held in Beijing in May 2007. According to the organisers, this event will enable the authorities to decide on security projects for the 2008 games.The Chinese authorities are also being clear about their desire to ensure security for the Olympic Games. Public security minister Zhou Yongkang yesterday requested more resources in order to better control Chinese society.At least 32 journalists and 52 cyber-dissidents and Internet users are currently imprisoned in China. A journalist was beaten to death by a policeman in the eastern province of Zhejiang in February. center_img News RSF_en June 2, 2021 Find out more October 26, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Second day of Chirac’s visit – with head of company that is selling police equipment for use in repression Follow the news on China to go further March 12, 2021 Find out more China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figures Organisation last_img read more

It was the head coaching debut for PCC’s Pat McGee.PCC’s relief staff was able to shut out the Condors over the last six innings including four strong innings by lefty Jonathan Hopkins (two hits, two walks, two Ks), and single no-hit blank frames by Zach Britt and Eddie Gutierrez. Castro, who singled to open the game, was a vacuum cleaner at shortstop. He made eight assists and one putout as he turned three double plays, two with DP partner and second baseman Robert Mier.Oxnard starter Blake Redman (six innings) and reliever Joshua Kobiske (three innings, save) scattered six hits for the combined shutout.PCC nearly got out of the first inning, but a dropped fly ball in right field on what should have been the third out scored two runs. Starting pitcher Brandon Murfett (0-1) ended up throwing 30 pitches and allowed a RBI single to Scott Hockenberry as the Condors took a 3-0 lead.In the second inning, a double, two bunt singles and even a double steal sparked Oxnard to score four “small-ball” runs and build a commanding 7-0 advantage.Pasadena’s best chance to score came in the ninth. Singles by Mier and reserve third baseman David Dominguez sandwiched a hit-by-pitch to RF Anthony Rabito that loaded the bases. But Kubiske recorded a strikeout and pop up to first to thwart the rally and preserve Oxnard’s shutout.DH John Sevilla, catcher Justin Cage, reserve CF PJ DeZotell recorded the Lancers’ other hits.This Saturday, Jan. 31, the Lancers play a twinbill at Antelope Valley College.
