The aim is to minimise the likelihood of a “crisis of confidence” that can cause a bank run.The commission admits that giving depositors such privilege could “increase the private cost of liabilities subordinated to deposits”, even for issuing senior debt, but says that the “social benefit” is worth it.

Bath Director of Rugby, Sir Ian McGeechan, commented “Danny is one of the most respected players in the game today, and will remain so even after his retirement. He has reached the highest level a player can, and should be very proud of his lengthy career. His hard work, dedication, and commitment to the game, both on and off the field, serve as a great example to any young player, and I look forward to working with him at Bath in his new capacity.”Head Coach, Steve Meehan, added “Danny has been a pleasure to work with over the last five seasons at Bath as he has always worked hard on improving his game and represents the complete professional. He has always given his all, whether it is during a game, in training or in other activities away from the pitch where he is representing the Club. Those are qualities that every player should have and I have no doubt that he will go on to be as successful in his new role with the Club as he has been throughout his playing career.” Despite calling time on a ten year playing career with Bath, Danny will stay at the Club in a mentoring capacity, focusing particularly on working with the young players coming through our schools and into the Bath Rugby Academy. As a cornerstone of the Club for so long on the playing side, he will play a key role in getting the foundations and culture right for the next generation of Bath Rugby players.Speaking about the decision, Danny said “I have been incredibly lucky to play for such a long time at such a great Club. I have enjoyed every minute of it, and have been very fortunate to have been given the opportunity to stay involved throughout. I’m really looking forward to working with the young players at the Club, and helping them to progress with their careers.” Bath Rugby can confirm that Danny Grewcock will be retiring at the end of this season.The Bath, England and British and Irish Lions legend will call time on a professional career that started in Coventry, and has spanned 15 years.One of the most respected players of the professional game, Danny joined Bath from Saracens in 2001, and the imposing lock has gone on to make 226 appearances in the Blue, Black and White, scoring 12 tries in that time.Formidable in the line-out and at scrum time, Danny made his England debut in 1997. He went on to receive 69 caps in total, and was part of the 2003 Six Nations Grand Slam and World Cup winning squads. He later received an MBE for his part in the World Cup victory.He was also a member of the 2001 and 2005 British and Irish Lions touring sides that played in Australia and New Zealand, and featured in all three tests against the Wallabies.

Intelligent Giving criticises ‘ignorant’ face to face fundraisers Charity-advisory website Intelligent Giving claims that many of the face-to-face fundraisers (or “chuggers” as it refers to them on its blog) that its researchers met in a mystery shopper exercise in central London are failing to adhere to the relevant legislation and professional codes of practice.After the six-week research in October and November, the website concludes “never give to street fundraisers”, and advises the public to make donations via a charity’s website.Intelligent Giving surveyed 50 face-to-face fundraisers. As explained in its methodology, it tested them to see how far they complied with the Charities Acts 1992 and 2006, the Institute of Fundraising’s Face-to-Face Activity Code of Practice and the code of conduct of the Professional Fundraising Regulatory Association.On the requirement for face-to-face fundraisers to state that they are being paid, how much and on what basis (whether it is commission), Intelligent Giving’s researchers found that “only four of our fifty fundraisers gave this satisfactory ‘solicitation statement’ without being asked.”Furthermore, the researchers concluded that “chuggers don’t always know much about the charities they represent”, contrasting this with the usually well-informed approach of in-house fundraisers, and that they can be rude: “fifteen of our fundraisers would not leave our researchers alone when asked.”In a blog post entitled Ignorant chuggers risk damaging all charities, Intelligent Giving’s Director Adam Rothwell commented: “It’s a disgrace to the fundraising profession that some of them were prepared to lie about their earnings in an attempt to get our researchers to stump up a donation. And the level of general compliance with professional standards was distressingly low.”However, the survey’s publication has caused debate and concern amongst fundraisers on online communities such as Facebook. As Robert Booth in The Guardian noted, “In 2006 a quarter of Shelter’s income came from street fundraisers and 75% of Greenpeace’s new members were recruited this way between 2000 and 2003”. Public criticism of the method based on a survey sample of 50 could have serious results for some charities if the public were to lose confidence in this method of giving.Mick Aldridge, chief executive of the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association, the self-regulatory body for face-to-face fundraising by charities and professional fundraising organisations, described the survey’s publication as “grossly irresponsible”.www.intelligentgiving.com/watchdog/charity_muggers 77 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Howard Lake | 24 November 2008 | News Tagged with: ethics face-to-face Individual giving Intelligent Giving Law / policy PFRA Research / statistics About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Even as circumstances change, the main way for charities to stay safe is to get the basics right. This helpsheet provides vital information on what to look out for and how to protect your charity.” Advertisement 161 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 Alan Bryce, Head of Counter Fraud and Cybercrime at the Charity Commission for England and Wales, added:“The problem of fraud against charities is not going away.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Drought Areas in U.S. Getting Worse SHARE By Andy Eubank – Aug 2, 2017 Drought Areas in U.S. Getting Worse Facebook Twitter Drought areas get worseNorth and South Dakota drought continues and there is no immediate end in sight. Ryan Martin, HAT Chief Meteorologist, traveling in Canada this week, says the drought has expanded further to the west and north of the Dakotas.“Montana is getting hammered really bad as well, especially in the eastern part,” he reports. “We’ve heard about the fires of course, but the fires are there because of drought. Then you have this drought extending out into Saskatchewan, not so much Manitoba. Maybe extreme western Manitoba they’re seeing it, but in Saskatchewan they’re seeing significant drought as well. So, there’s definitely a lack of rain. The most severe from up in North Dakota into southern Canada has us right now in what the drought monitor terms, exceptional drought.”As for relief in drought-stricken areas, Martin doesn’t think it is likely and it will take a lot to improve those areas.“You reach a certain point where it takes more than your standard, garden variety frontal system coming through to get moisture because your atmosphere is just so dry. You change the evaporation content and the way things work from the surface in these dry areas. So, do I see some systems coming through? Yes. For example, there’s one here a little later this week that kicks out of North Dakota. It really turns into a nice, big storm for the upper Midwest. So there’s some moisture there, but the problem is it’s going to put the moisture down in the usual places, the Red River Valley and far eastern North Dakota where things aren’t really as bad.”Martin feels the spring didn’t get off to a good start as the Upper Midwest came out of a winter much warmer and drier than normal. That led to a deficit in moisture that just built upon itself as the spring went by. Heading toward fall and harvest time, he says the strange weather pattern could stick around for a while yet.Here in Indiana more of the same could be on the way. Rain that is. Martin says very unsettled weather is establishing itself over the next couple of days before a mostly dry weekend and then more rain late Sunday and into Monday.

+ posts printGlitz and glam filled the ballroom of the Hilton hotel in downtown Fort Worth at Alpha Chi Omega’s annual philanthropy event on the afternoon of Sunday, Feb. 19.The event benefited the Alpha Chi Omega Foundation and The Women’s Center of Tarrant County. Over $110,000 was raised, according to the Fashion Show Committee Chair Carly Boobar.Students walked in the show to raise awareness about domestic violence.According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence, women between the ages of 18-24 are the most common victims of domestic violence.Models and retailers chair Juliette Hollihan said open discussion about domestic violence is essential.“I just want people to be more comfortable talking about their experiences and reaching out for help,” Hollihan said.Domestic violence makes up 15 percent of violent crimes, and suicidal behavior and depression correlate with domestic violence, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.Sophomore model Bryar Ferguson spoke about the importance of gender equality.“I think as a man, respect and equal treatment of women is just so important,” Ferguson said. “I think that if you’re a person that abuses your girlfriend or spouse, I mean, I’m not sure if you can even call yourself a man.”More than 600 people attended the event which included a fashion show, silent auction, and raffle. Retailers around Fort Worth donated clothes for students to model.Sophomore model Helen Prebys shared her excitement about the show.“I feel domestic violence is such an issue that kind of goes unnoticed sometimes and personally I am a victim of sexual assault and it’s really cool that I can stand up and do something about it but have a good time while doing it,” Prebys said.For more information about the annual philanthropy event visit iotalambdafashionshow.com.Domestic Violence Venngage Infographics Linkedin World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution Facebook Nicole Stronghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nicole-strong/ Nicole Strong ReddIt Nicole Stronghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nicole-strong/ Pi Phi Wing competition promotes literacy Nicole Stronghttps://www.tcu360.com/author/nicole-strong/ A new dining option is rolling through the BLUU ReddIt Facebook Twitter Search for the perfect horse Previous article“Logan” claws its way above expectationsNext articleTCU scores hallmark win, upsets No. 1 Kansas, 85-82 Nicole Strong RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Delta Gamma goes for gold with Lectureship event Linkedin People gather in the Hilton hotel downtown for the Alpha Chi Omega fashion show (Nicole Strong/TCU360).
