Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors.center_img Investing £5,000, or any other amount, in FTSE 100 shares might seem like a daunting prospect for many investors. After one of the longest bull markets in history, the index suffered its worst crash on record in March.To complicate matters, some FTSE 100 shares are faring much better than others in the current economic climate.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…However, while this volatility and complexity might scare some investors, it’s difficult to argue with the index’s long-term performance figures. The FTSE 100 has produced an average annual return of around 8% for investors since its inception in the 1980s.Therefore, while the short-term outlook for the index might be difficult to predict, its long-term growth potential appears exceptionally high. That’s why it could be worth considering buying FTSE 100 shares for your portfolio today.The outlook for FTSE 100 shares As mentioned above, the outlook for FTSE 100 shares is cloudy right now. The UK economy has suffered one of its worst economic slumps in history. GDP declined a record 20% in the month of April, and figures suggest unemployment has reached record levels as well.As such, it appears many sections of the economy are in for a protracted period of economic pain.Against this backdrop, investors may wish to buy companies that have a high chance of surviving this period of extended uncertainty. FTSE 100 shares with low levels of debt, defensive business models, and the capacity to cut costs may be better positioned to overcome risks in the short term.It could also be sensible to avoid any companies that rely on hospitality or travel markets. A second wave of coronavirus could force countries to shut their borders once again. This would inflict further pain on an already damaged sector.Value for moneyHowever, sectors that face uncertain futures could also offer the best value for money. Investors have been quick to mark down the value of FTSE 100 shares in companies with challenging outlooks. This may provide new investors with a wide margin of safety that gives an enhanced risk-reward profile. In some cases, this margin of safety may more than make up for the uncertainty facing a particular business.It’s essential to evaluate each business on its own individual merits, strengths, and weaknesses. The best way to do this is to look through group annual reports, or use one of the many online resources available that profile companies’ financial position and strengths. This is the best way to make sure your investment has the financial capacity to ride out the current economic uncertainty.Buy for the long termInvestors with a short-term focus have been quick to sell FTSE 100 shares over the past few months. This may mean that buying high-quality businesses at attractive prices today could benefit investors with a long-term time horizon.

Lopez Island Cabin / Stuart Silk Architects

first_img Engineer:Quantum Consulting EngineersInteriors:Stuart SilkDesign Principal:Stuart SilkProject Manager:Lisa SidlauskasCountry:United StatesMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!Courtesy of Stuart Silk ArchitectsText description provided by the architects. Located on 30 acres of wooded waterfront property on Lopez Island, WA, this 1,300-square-foot vacation home sits in a meadow of native grasses on a high bluff overlooking Puget Sound. The design respects the existing site, where draught-tolerant indigenous grasses and plants merge with existing boulders and engage the house so it merges seamlessly with the landscape. Native fir, cedar, and madrona trees encircle the meadow, filtering the sunlight and creating a natural privacy screen. Save this picture!Courtesy of Stuart Silk ArchitectsThe approach to the house is down a gravel path from the east. The sloping roof plane – as though emerging from the earth – rises unbroken between two small towers, which contain sleeping rooms. A shed roof covers the contiguous living, dining, and kitchen areas. A14-foot-tall wall of glass forms the western edge of the house, allowing uninterrupted views of the water and mountains. The roof cantilevers beyond the glass wall, evoking a sense of protection and blurring the distinction between interior and exterior. The roof plane floats above 360-degree clerestory windows, allowing natural light to enter the home. Countering the lightness of the roof structure, two thick masonry walls run the length of the home.

Materials and construction methods were chosen for simplicity, low maintenance, and energy conservation. Slab-on-grade construction was used for both living spaces and exterior terraces, allowing a seamless connection between interior and exterior. Corrugated metal siding and concrete block were chosen for their durability. Concrete also acts as a thermal mass, storing daytime heat and releasing it at night.

Elischer urges reinvention of the donor pyramid for 21st century

first_imgElischer urges reinvention of the donor pyramid for 21st century For international charities, Elischer posits that there is also a fourth HNWI category of ‘megadonors’, or rather “global philanthropists”. He defines ‘middle donors’ as people who give at the top of the range in their existing programme and supplement this with other gifts, who would be engaged via “highly-personalised direct marketing”. Howard Lake | 7 July 2008 | News In terms of major donors, Elischer’s new model splits the top five per cent of a charity’s donorbase into three interlinked levels – middle donors, high value donors, and major donors. The traditional donor pyramid has been used as the fundamental model for fundraising since the 1960s. According to its principles, fundraisers help develop donors or supporters so that they ascend a pyramid from lower to higher levels, where each successive level represents fewer donors giving at higher levels, with major gifts and legacies at the top.  177 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy Individual giving Advertisement Elischer’s 2008 version of the pyramid inserts several new tiers, by splitting big gifts/major donors into three separate categories of high net worth individuals (HNWIs) and distinguishing between ‘committed’ givers and ‘regular givers’. In his paper Elischer argues that the original distiction between committed and regular givers should be restored. Someone who gives £2 a month by direct debit but otherwise interacts little with the charity is not the same as a committed donor who give monthly but through, for example, a sponsorship programme and who are much more involved with the charity. Elischer’s ‘incidental donor’ will indirectly support a cause by buying tickets to an event or merchandise. It also introduces two new concepts at the base of the pyramid, the ‘trydonor’ and the ‘incidental donor’.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis18 Like the ‘trysumer’, the ‘trydonor’ will try out a product of a brand without deciding whether to commit to it or not. For example, they will respond to a campaign or sign a petition and wait to see how the charity responds to their first action before taking things further. He concludes his thought paper by arguing that an updated view of the donor pyramid is essential because “after all, globally, individuals still represent the largest and most valuable source of voluntary income for our sector.” Elischer argues: “This formulation of the donor pyramid fails to reflect how the digital decade has changed the way many people want to connect with, interact with and possibly build a relationship with a charitable cause”. Elischer believes that these HNWI categories can not be stated as a definite rule for each charity, but they do offer charities more control over the cultivation and stewardship process, and can facilitate movement not just up the pyramid but also back down if necessary. The top rank is the traditional major donor category, where “higher levels of stewardship can be offered to ensure loyalty and ultimate maximum level of donations”. The high value donor is someone whom the charity is engaged in making more personal contact with to enable them “to get closer to the cause”. The traditional donor pyramid needs to be updated to reflect the impacts of the digital world and evolving consumer behaviour, according to Tony Elischer, managing director of voluntary sector consultancy THINK Consulting Solutions.He explains why in ‘The 2008 Expedition: Rediscovering and Climbing the Donor Pyramid’, published today to coincide with the Institute of Fundraising’s National Convention. “All too often”, he says, “these two categories are merged together strategically and once this happens, it limits the ability to grow each category of donor in their own right.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Autopsy report released on police murder of Mario Woods

first_imgAccording to an autopsy report released Feb. 11 by San Francisco Chief Medical Examiner Michael Hunter, the five San Francisco police officers who killed Mario Woods put a total of 20 bullets into his body, many from behind, and one additional “probable gunshot graze wound” to his right cheek. (San Francisco Chronicle, Feb. 11) Investigators found at least 27 bullet shell casings at the scene. The firing-squad-style execution on Dec. 2 was captured by three eyewitness videos. Hunter found Wood’s cause of death to be multiple gunshot wounds to his head, back, abdomen, buttocks, legs and hands. Woods also had four clear bruises from beanbag rounds also fired by San Francisco Police Department officers. The San Francisco Chronicle reported that one of the videos “showed one officer stepping in front of Woods, who was 26, as he shuffled along a wall, with the gunfire coming moments later from officers who had surrounded Woods. The report lists Woods as 5-foot-9, 156 pounds.” (Feb. 11) John Burris, the family lawyer, described the third video coverage in a press conference on Dec. 11: “Mario’s arms were at his sides. He was not committing a dangerous act. He was not threatening police officers at the time. He was walking slowly. It was the police officer that created confrontation when he jumped in front of him.” (S.F. Chronicle, Dec. 12)SFPD Chief Greg Suhr tried to claim the usual “police were in fear of their lives” at a town hall called two days after the shooting. Displaying an enlarged frame from one of the videos showing Woods with his arms extended, Suhr claimed it showed that Woods was pointing a small kitchen knife at the officers. The slow motion playback of the same video proved the first shot was fired before Woods’ arm was extended.On Jan. 21, even San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, bowing to the ongoing community anger over Woods’ killing, was forced to call for a federal investigation into Woods’ death and SFPD practices.In response to a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by Woods’ family, San Francisco Deputy City Attorney Sean Connolly has claimed that the SFPD acted lawfully in killing Woods. According to the Feb. 12 Chronicle, city attorneys claimed police officers “need not use the least intrusive form of force when dealing with an armed suspect who poses a threat to the public or police officers. Police officers need not wait until they or a member of the public are assaulted before using lethal force.” Community keeps up unrelenting struggleJust the day before, on Feb. 10, Chief Suhr had brought out a revised proposal to equip some officers with Tasers or stun guns. Tasers are proposed as nonlethal alternatives to guns but have proven to be fatal; the Washington Post revealed that 48 people died in 2015 alone after being tased by police. Many are enraged that the police chief is using the killing of Woods to justify reintroducing the proposal, which had previously been defeated by community campaigns.The community, led by Black activists in the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood where Woods was killed, has been unrelenting in keeping the pressure on for justice for Woods. Demands include prosecuting the five cops who killed Woods, the firing of Chief Suhr and the resignation of Mayor Lee. Ronnisha Johnson and Rheema Emy Calloway of Black Lives Matter Bay Area bought tickets to the Feb. 7 Super Bowl with the intent to get international publicity for Wood’s case, in juxtaposition to the multimillion dollar spectacle of the game. They succeeded in getting some of Beyoncé’s dancers to hold a sign after the halftime show reading “Justice for Woods” and, with raised fists, chanting the same. The dancers were dressed in all black, sporting Black-Panther-style berets, in what is widely regarded as Beyoncé’s tribute to the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Black Panther Party.Additionally, at Alicia Keys’ Feb. 6 concert in San Francisco the night before the Super Bowl, Keys said: “I want to thank you for your commitment to making sure justice is done for Mario Woods. As the mother of two Black sons, it breaks my heart to see what we’ve been seeing, the killings we’ve been seeing on camera and all the people that we’ll never see. Black lives matter, and we all of every color need to come together to end systemic racism.” (S.F. Chronicle, Feb. 8)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

From PCC To Vassar: Student-Veteran Wins Full-Ride Scholarship

While there, Hardman plans to continue his biology studies. He hopes to one day become a researcher in the field of genetics.“Our whole staff is thrilled that Comus received the scholarship,” said Patricia D’Orange-Martin, PCC counselor and coordinator of PCC’s Veterans Resource Center. “He is such a great and deserving young man. I think we will see great things from him.”For Hardman, winning the scholarship couldn’t have come at a better time. He was set to graduate from PCC at the end of the spring semester, then apply to a four-year university (UCLA was one of his choices). He didn’t know exactly how he would pay for tuition, but he said he’d find a way.“One of the reasons I joined the military was to help pay for my education,” he said. “That was the plan. Come to PCC and then transfer. It’s a cheaper that way.”Those plans changed after a brief encounter with D’Orange-Martin early last year at the VRC. The counselor pulled Hardman aside and asked if he was interested in applying for the Posse Foundation scholarship. Members of the organization were on campus that day looking for regional candidates for first-round interviews.“What they were looking for was someone bright, with strong leadership skills,” D’Orange-Martin said.One of the primary goals of the Posse Foundation is to help identify students with extraordinary academic and leadership potential who may be overlooked by traditional college selection processes. “The scholarship was for students with great potential, but on paper didn’t look like the students the top-tier schools would pick,” she said.Turns out, Hardman seemed to be a good fit for the scholarship. Only a few hours later that day, Hardman scored an interview. He did well enough to make it to the semifinals, where he joined more than a dozen other student-veterans – some of whom were PCC students as well.The next few weeks were a whirlwind of sorts for the Covington, Ga. native, who moved to Los Angeles five years ago.“I had no idea what the Posse Foundation was,” he said. “I really didn’t have any expectations, so I just tried to have fun with it. I told myself this was a great experience and we’ll see what happens.”At the semifinals, the veterans convened at the Foundation’s Downtown L.A. office, where they were put into group activities designed to flesh out critical-thinking, problem-solving, and leadership skills.Hardman and another PCC student, Joel Arredondo, stood out from the group and were chosen as finalists for the scholarship to Vassar. Last December, the two were flown to N.Y. for a personal interview and reception.“It was my first time in New York,” he said. “I wasn’t really nervous. I just treated it as a new experience.”While there, Hardman joined other veterans from the Posse Foundation for daylong group discussions ranging from broad topics like religion, politics, education, and poverty. “It was an exhilarating experience,” he said. “I met great people who were very intelligent and came from different backgrounds.”The next morning, Hardman got the call that he won the scholarship.“My family flipped out,” he said. “They were super excited, super proud.”Hardman credits his instructors at PCC as well as the school’s resources for helping achieve his educational goals. “I wouldn’t have had this opportunity now if it weren’t for PCC. Growing up, I knew I wanted to pursue something in science. When I took a biology course here at PCC, it cemented my feeling of pursuing genetics.“The VRC was extremely helpful,” he added. “You had other veterans there to share some life experiences with them. They weren’t your typical 18 or 19 year olds just from high school. They were students I could relate to.”This summer, before heading out to Vassar, Hardman will fulfill his military obligations at the naval air station in Point Mugu. In the meantime, he has a message for other student-veterans: “Seek out those opportunities. There’s a lot more available to us than I thought possible. We serve the country, but the country can serve you, too.”The Veterans Posse is one component of the Posse Foundation’s overall goal of identifying “non-traditional” students from various backgrounds who might contribute greatly to and benefit greatly from partner institutions. Through the Veterans Posse initiative, the foundation has formed partnerships with Vassar College and Wesleyan University in Middletown, Conn.The organization plans to expand its institutional partnerships to Dartmouth College in 2016, and 12 other top-tier institutions over the next five years.For more information about the Posse Foundation’s veterans program, visit Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community Newscenter_img Top of the News HerbeautyStop Eating Read Meat (Before It’s Too Late)HerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Easy Tips To Help You Reset Your Sleep ScheduleHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyFinding The Right Type Of Workout For You According AstrologyHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyCostume That Makes Actresses Beneath Practically UnrecognizableHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Brutally Honest Reasons Why You’re Still SingleHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyIs It Bad To Give Your Boyfriend An Ultimatum?HerbeautyHerbeauty Education From PCC To Vassar: Student-Veteran Wins Full-Ride Scholarship By Gilbert Rivera , Publications Supervisor Published on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 | 12:11 pm More Cool Stuff Your email address will not be published.

What will happen as forbearance plans expire?  How is the crisis shaping technology? What risk and regulatory issues will come into focus? How will the legal landscape shift, and how will the market respond?  While no one has all the sure-fire answers, DS News staff and contributors are pulling out all the stops in our effort to arm readers with all the expert information and insight you need to make knowledgeable decisions.      With just a few months under his belt in his new position, Bell Bank’s Chief Risk Officer, Jesse Schwab speaks with DS News about developing a risk framework, growing responsibly, and being proactive when it comes to risk management and compliance in this month’s cover story, “The Strategic Value of Risk Management.” “Is it Time to Reevaluate Your Approach to Customer Service?” It’s the question that contributor Sascha Mehlhase, VP of Growth at ABC Legal Services, addresses in her feature that explores how the pandemic coupled with the “age of the customer” has changed everything.  Rosemarie Hebner and Eric Houser of Houser Law delve into the controversial Nevada Supreme Court decision which could have a national impact on the rights of mortgagers inside and out of the court, in “HOA vs. Mortgage Lenders.” Another Supreme Court decision in Florida addresses a previous court’s ruling related to standing to foreclose and attorney’s fees. GrayRobinson’s Jonathan Blackmore examines Page v. Deutsche Bank Trust Company Americas in “Florida Supreme Court Rejects No Standing = No Fees Rule.” In “Residential Leasebacks: A Tool Against Future Foreclosure Crises,” Daniel Kattan, CEO of Sell2Rent explores a robust residential leaseback program that, if properly implemented, could help keep struggling homeowners in their home, while also avoiding costly foreclosure proceedings. And lastly, the question on everyone’s mind, “Is a Foreclosure Crisis in the Cards?” In the month’s final feature, Patrick F.

Gender pay gap: Vice-Chancellor criticises “frustratingly slow” progress

first_imgLittle progress has been made in reducing the earnings gap between male and female staff members, a report by the University has revealed. The report finds that: “The gender pay gaps identified aremainly attributable to a lack of women in senior roles in the University.” Ofthe 25% highest-earning staff, just 38% are women. A majority of all otherstaff are women, including 62.5% of the 25% lowest-paid staff. As an organisation with over 250 employees, the University is legally required to release gender pay data. Last year, a number of colleges released their own statistics, with Balliol and Keble reporting the highest mean pay gaps this time last year. In introduction to the report, Vice-Chancellor LouiseRichardson, writes: “[W]e have made progress, but the progress is frustratinglyslow.” Since the first such report last year, the mean gender paygap amongst Oxford University staff has decreased slightly from 24.5% to 22.6%but remains higher than the national average. The median figure has remained at13.7%.center_img The 2019 report is available on the University website. Although more women are in receipt of bonus payments, themean gap between male and female bonus pay is 64.1% (down from 79% last year). Themedian figure has decreased substantially, however, from 48.7% to 6.7%,suggesting that the bonuses of senior male staff are responsible for much ofthe gap. The report reiterates a commitment by the University toachieve yearly increases in the proportion of female professors at theuniversity, with a short-term goal of 30% by 2020 for all professors and 20%for statutory professors. This is coupled with a commitment to see a third of Universityleadership roles, such as departmental heads and senior management positions, occupiedby women.last_img read more
