The Queen approved an Order granting the Royal Charter on 14 February 2020, and the Royal Charter took legal effect when the Royal seal was attached to the formal charter in Parliament last week.Chartered status will raise the profile and status of fundraising, helping to promote and provide public recognition of fundraising as a profession with high standards of practice at its heart and which delivers public benefit.In a message to members, Peter Lewis, its Chief Executive said:“Almost 37 years to the day that the Institute was first formed we received our Royal Charter. It represents formal recognition of fundraising as a profession, reflecting your professional skills and your commitment to learning and development. It recognises the huge contribution you all make to making the world a better place.“And perhaps never in a generation has this country needed your professional skills more. As fundraising activity around the UK is severely curtailed by coronavirus, it is only with your professional skills and experience that charities will be able to raise the funds they need to meet increases in demand, or simply maintain their efforts for the causes or communities they serve.” Tagged with: chartered status Institute of Fundraising The Institute of Fundraising is now a Chartered body after its Royal Charter was formally sealed and approved.The Institute of Fundraising started operating as a Chartered body from 1 April, and will change its name, identity and website in the coming months.last_img read more

Is the Market Moving Deeper into Buying Territory?

first_imgSubscribe September 14, 2016 925 Views Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago  Print This Post Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The latest national index produced by Florida Atlantic University and Florida International University faculty indicates the United States housing market as a whole is moving marginally deeper into buy territory. According to the recent report from the university, this trend suggests that, on average, the majority of housing markets around the country are in good shape and remain a sound investment.The report states that based on numbers from the end of the second quarter, the latest Beracha, Hardin & Johnson Buy vs. Rent (BH&J) Index comes on the heels of the latest S&P/Case-Shiller Home Price Index, which found home prices climbed nationally 5.1 percent since June 2015. The report also states that both indexes incorporate property appreciation from housing markets around the country, but unlike Case-Shiller, the BH&J Index adds additional rental, maintenance, and alternative investment data streams, among others, to indicate when and why housing markets might be changing direction.”Housing prices, in general, continue to slow and when considered in light of the recent trends in the Buy vs. Rent Index signal that ownership remains an excellent investment for the majority of Americans,” said Ken Johnson, Ph.D., a real estate economist who is one of the index’s authors and an associate dean of graduate programs and professor in FAU’s College of Business.The report states that they believe the U.S. housing market has moved marginally more in favor of homeownership over renting a comparable property and investing monthly rent savings in a portfolio of stocks and bonds. The report also states that overall, 15 of the 23 metropolitan markets investigated are trending more in favor of ownership since last quarter.Additionally, the report shows that cities such as Honolulu, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Francisco and Seattle are considered to be minimally in rent territory and show signs of slowing. It is also noted that the U.S. as a whole and all but three of the remaining metro areas remain in buy territory, favoring ownership as a way to create more wealth, on average.”Many of the hardest hit metropolitan areas during the real estate crash are showing signs of resilience as the cost of ownership relative to the cost of renting remains more in balance,” said Eli Beracha, Ph.D., co-author of the index and assistant professor in FIU’s T&S Hollo School of Real Estate. “There are very few signs to indicate a market crash in these cities.” Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Share Save Is the Market Moving Deeper into Buying Territory?

The High Court, while dismissing the appeal opined that the letters written by the accused to the prosecutrix, their photographs together, and the statement of the accused recorded under Section 313 Cr.P.C. were sufficient to sustain the conviction.The accused, before the Apex Court bench also comprising of Justices Navin Sinha and Indira Banerjee contended that the questions put to him under Section 313 Cr.P.C. were very casual and perfunctory, leading to denial of proper opportunity of defence causing serious prejudice to him by denial of the right to a fair trial.Referring to the Section 313 CrPC Questionnaire, the bench noted that the questions were extremely casual and perfunctory in nature. Referring to Naval Kishore Singh v. State of Bihar, (2004) 7 SCC 502, the bench said:”It stands well settled that circumstances not put to an accused under Section 313 Cr.P.C. cannot be used against him, and must be excluded from consideration. In a criminal trial, the importance of the questions put to an accused are basic to the 6 principles of natural justice as it provides him the opportunity not only to furnish his defence, but also to explain the incriminating circumstances against him. A probable defence raised by an accused is sufficient to rebut the accusation without the requirement of proof beyond reasonable doubt. This Court, time and again, has emphasised the importance of putting all relevant questions to an accused under Section 313 Cr.P.C.”While acquitting the accused, the court observed that misconception of fact arising out of promise to marry has to be in proximity of time to the occurrence and cannot be spread over a long period of time coupled with a conscious positive action not to protest.Case no.: CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 635 OF 2020Case name: MAHESHWAR TIGGA vs. THE STATE OF JHARKHANDCoram: Justices Rohinton Fali Nariman, Navin Sinha and Indira BanerjeeCounsel: Sr. Adv V.

The annual Farm-City Tour highlights the partnership between the urban and rural communities.The areas of study include special topics in horticulture, introduction to animal dairy science, vegetable and orchard crops, agricultural equipment repair and maintenance and residential landscape design.The 20 Ag Academy students took the group of committee members and community leaders on a tour of the academy that included the academy building, shop, greenhouses and chicken coop.Dr. Mark Bazzell, superintendent of Pike County Schools, said the Ag Academy’s new direction is another step in the continuing growth of the academy concept in education. By Jaine Treadwell Latest Stories Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson By The Penny Hoarder Farm-City Committee tours Goshen Ag Academy “About 20 years ago, a group of educators from the Pike County city and county school systems and community leaders went to Florida to learn about academies and how they worked. We liked what we saw and realized how academies could benefit our students.”Bazzell said the Pike County Board of Education is committed to the new mindset of learning at the Ag Academy.“With Mrs. Rich and Cody Eisland, we have the right folks to make it work,” he said. “We have made a sizeable financial investment in the Ag Academy. We have committed 21-acres and a building and we are doing it right. Our Ag Academy is unique in the state and the possibilities for our students are unlimited.”Bazzell said plans are to offer a post-graduate program, in cooperation with Auburn University, to Ag Academy graduates that would include three semesters and one summer of study at the Goshen academy.“When the post-graduate studies are completed, the students will have earned a bachelor’s degree in Ag Education without it costing them a dime,” Bazzell said.Those who earn associate degrees at the county’s academies are held to a high standard.“We don’t cut the academy students any slack,” Bazzell said “They have got to perform or they are out.“The goal of the each of the academies is to provide the students with valuable skill sets that prepare them for college or for a career. The cost-savings to the families of students who graduate from the academies is substantial and the educational value is priceless.”Kathy Sauer, Chamber president, said the Farm-City Tour of the Goshen Agriscience and Technical Academy was an opportunity for committee members, farmers and community leaders to learn about the changes at the academy and to experience, first-hand, the opportunities offered through the academy and how the students will benefit from those opportunities in college or in the workplace.

Jamie Rich, Academy instructor, said there is a new mindset for learning at the Ag Academy.A student who graduates from the Ag Academy’s three-year program will also have earned a two-year associate degree from Enterprise State Community College and Wallace State Community College – Hanceville.“The Ag Academy students receive a three-year general education with a concentration in an agriculture program that focuses on modern business and economic principles involved in the organization, operation and management of agricultural enterprises,” said Jamie Rich, Ag Academy instructor. “Students apply for the Ag Academy in the ninth grade and actually enter the academy in the tenth grade.

Three Minute Public Comment Made By Attorney Charles Berger At EVSC Board Meeting

first_imgThree Minute Public Comment Made By Attorney Charles Berger At EVSC Board MeetingI introduced myself and explained I had sent a letter on October 1, 2019, to President Karen Ragland requesting a place on the Meeting Agenda to be able to address the Board so we could communicate since in the Public session there is no discussion or feedback from the Board, just the Board members sitting their silent.I then discussed the fact that the Executive Sessions for each meeting last approximately twice as long as the public meeting which is contrary to the intent of the Indiana Open Door statute and the EVSC’s own policy of creating an atmosphere open communication with the citizens they serve. I suggested they should be addressing changes to change this or it might be changed for them.I then focused on the fact that they have a “Good News Report” in each meeting. I suggested a “Not So Good News Report” should be added to update the public on the unacceptable level of performance of almost half of all elementary schools. There are twenty-two elementary schools and ten of them mostly from the underserved community of the EVSC have never achieved even a grade of “C” in the last four years. I had previously requested in an open record request the expenditure per school and was advised it did not exist as I had requested but I could search for it in the budget. I have not been told in communication from Superintendent Smith if it might be in the future.I ended by suggesting they explain why there is no anti-nepotism policy for the Administrative Positions. I also advised them that I would return.Sincerely,Charlie Berger FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more
