Cause related marketing competition winner announced

first_imgMutton said: “The competition was set up as a method for sales promotion agencies to gain experience of cause related marketing (CRM), with the added incentive of winning the chance to start their CRM experience with a live brief for a large charity. The ISP supports this competition as an educational tool, benefiting both the charity partner and the agencies.”Fewer than 50% of sales promotion agencies are believed to have experience of any CRM activities, even though research by Business in the Community has demonstrated its effectiveness in driving consumer behaviour. The competition was designed to address this lack, by encouraging greater interest and understanding in cause related marketing amongst sales promotion agencies. The 2003 competition challenged agencies to raise money and increase exposure for a worthy cause by devising a CRM campaign for the nominated charity.

Freedom of information in decline for past two years in Iceland

first_img What with an interior ministry official seeking jail terms for two journalists in a criminal libel prosecution and major budget cuts for public TV and radio stations that the ruling coalition has accused of bias, the past two years have seen a marked decline in freedom of information in Iceland, one that began with the financial crisis in 2008. Political interests have been having a negative impact on freedom of information in Iceland ever since the 2008 financial crash. Almost all of the leading media editors have had to stand down this year. The only exception is Morgunblaðið editor David Oddsson, who happens to be a former prime minister and former central bank governor. News Vigdís Hauksdóttir, a parliamentarian who is a member of the ruling coalition and chairs the budgetary committee, made typically critical comments about RUV in an August 2013 interview for Radio Bylgjan that was reported by Grapevine. “I think an unnatural amount of money goes to RUV,” she said. “Especially when they don’t do a better job at reporting the news. They are fond of a particular platform, and lean to the Left. Everyone who wants to see that can see it. I assure you this is true, and can confirm it whenever and wherever that (RUV) is very pro-EU.” Þórey Vilhjálmsdóttir, a political adviser to Iceland’s interior minister, is seeking two-year jail sentences for newspaper reporters Jón Bjarki Magnússon and Jóhann Páll Jóhannsson, who wrongly identified her as the source of a leak in story published on 20 June, although they issued a correction within hours. As well as quickly putting out a corrected version naming Gísli Freyr Valdórsson, another interior ministry adviser, as the source of the leak, they issued an apology in the form of a press release circulated to the media. Valdórsson, now on probation, has since been given an eight-month prison sentence for leaking information about a Nigerian asylum-seeker to several news outlets.Gísli Freyr Valdórsson has since been given an eight-month prison sentence for leaking information about a Nigerian asylum-seeker to several news outlets. The editor-in-chief of the broadcasting company RUV was fired along with the rest of its management in the wake of the director-general’s dismissal. 365 Media, the company that owns the biggest TV network, has reduced the number of its newsrooms and fired two of its chief editors, replacing them with the former spokeswoman for its owner’s husband, a leading figure in business circles. Several journalists left the company after the substitution. The pressure is continuing. Foreign minister Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson criticized the way RUV portrayed him in one of its reports. In March of this year, he imposed his own conditions on RUV, refusing to give it interviews unless it sends him a copy of video before it is broadcast. In the end, he was not interviewed at all. At the same time he, too, accused it of being too pro-EU in its coverage.As regards privately-owned media, Hauksdóttir issued a call on Facebook in February 2014 for a boycott of the newspaper Kvennablaðið after it criticized her, and she urged the cosmetics company EGF to “stop buying advertising” in Kvennablaðið. The Union of Icelandic Journalists condemned her calls as “attempts to obstruct freedom of expression.” In a letter, Reporters Without Borders calls on Vilhjálmsdóttir to soften the complaint she has brought against the two journalists, so that it is more proportionate to the actual harm to her reputation.Iceland’s defamation laws have received a great deal of recent criticism from international bodies. The European Court of Human Rights has stressed the extremely negative impact of these laws on journalists and freedom of information, and the disproportionate nature of their penalties, while a recent International Press Institute report called them obsolete. Reporters Without Borders urges Iceland’s government to amend these laws. RSF_en center_img November 19, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Freedom of information in decline for past two years in Iceland Organisation A public broadcaster funded by a licence fee system until 2007, RUV became a state-owned compagny in 2008, its only share being held by the ministry of culture. A year later, the government assumed direct control of the source of its funding, and thereby direct control of its budget. And in the wake of this loss of structural independence, comments have been made about a lack of editorial independence. Between 2013 and 2014, the ruling right-wing coalition repeatedly criticized the treatment of the news coverage provide by RUV’s TV and radio channels, and used it as an excuse to reduce dramatically its budget. Indeed, the ruling coalition often questions the impartiality of the news coverage provide by RUV’s TV and radio channels, especially their coverage of European news. But a survey conducted by the consumer reporting agency Creditinfo found that positive and negative news reports about the European Union get equal space in RUV’s coverage. Meanwhile, public broadcasting under attack Such comments clearly put pressure on RUV’s journalists. A 20 percent cut in RUV’s budget was announced in December 2013, with the resulting loss of many journalists from RUV newsrooms. The European Broadcasting Union issued a statement condemning the cut, while former RUV director-general Páll Magnússon said: “Viewers will see a difference. Our listeners will hear it. (…) Our ability to provide news to the Icelandic public will be diminished, and newscasts will be shorter and fewer.” Reporters Without Borders regrets that Vilhjálmsdóttir is seeking the maximum possible libel penalty for the two journalists under criminal code articles 234 and 235 – two years in prison, damages of 3 million krónurs (19,000 euros) and legal fees of 900,000 krónurs (5800 euros) – because it would set a disastrous precedent for freedom of information in Iceland. The organization also underlines that the ministry of the interior is also in charge of human rights: Vilhjálmsdóttir should be aware of her responsibilities in the domain of press freedom.

That is the largest weekly drop since early November, Black Knight researchers say, adding that the decline was driven by the large volume of quarterly forbearance plan expirations at the end of December, many of which were reaching the 9-month mark.Despite the decline, Black Knight reported, “this week’s numbers reflect a troubling slowdown in the rate of improvement.””The 3% decline in the first week of January fell starkly short of the 9% we saw at the start of July, during the first quarterly wave of expirations,” the researchers noted. “And it pales in comparison to the 18% reduction in the first week of October when plans began to reach 6-month expirations.”While the monthly rate of decline has varied over the past seven months due to fluctuations in scheduled expiration activity, the report showed the population improved by an average rate of -1% month-over-month over the past 30 days. That’s down from -7.5% monthly on average from June through November.December marked the last significant wave of quarterly expirations before the first plans begin to reach their 12-month points at the end of March.”As such, it’s likely we’ll see only modest improvement in overall forbearance volumes between now and then,” Black Knight reported.Overall, as of January 5, 5.2% of all mortgages (2.74 million) are in forbearance. Together, they represent $547 billion in unpaid principal.All investor classes showed some improvement—FHA/VA forbearances fell 33,000 (-2.8%), a 32,000 decline among GSE-backed loans, a 27,000, or -3.9%, reduction of private-label securities or banks’ portfolio loans.About 3.3% of all GSE-backed loans and 9.3% of all FHA/VA loans are in forbearance plans. An additional 5.2% of loans in private-label securities or banks’ portfolios are also in forbearance.Forbearance plan starts fell again this week, Black Knight reported, “with both new starts and total starts hitting their lowest levels since the early stages of the pandemic, and restarts at their lowest since early October.”The report showed the largest weekly volume of forbearance removals, 146,000, since early November.Still, just 35% of loans in expiring plans were removed from forbearance in the first week of January as compared to more than 60% on average in the first week of each of the previous three months.”This decline in removals appears to be the largest contributing factor to the slowing rate of improvement in active forbearance plans,” Black Knight reported. 2021-01-08 Christina Hughes Babb Home / Daily Dose / Report Reflects a ‘Troubling Slowdown’ for Forbearance Improvement in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Related Articles Report Reflects a ‘Troubling Slowdown’ for Forbearance Improvement Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Subscribelast_img read more

A lesson on Annie Bass

first_img Pioneer Museum Director Kari Barley is quick to share the legacy of Annie Cloud Bass with visitors. Miss Bass, a Brundidge native, was a benefactor of many organizations in PIke County and two displays at the museum are dedicated in her honor. Below right, this portrait of Miss Annie Cloud is on display at the museum. (Messenger Photo / Jaine Treadwell)The Pioneer Museum of Alabama interprets the history of Pike County as well as 18th and 19th century rural life.Kari Barley, museum director, said the 40-acre museum has 21 historic structures and 18,000 artifacts that illustrate its rich, rustic heritage.“Four thematic exhibition halls within our Main Gallery display historic farm equipment, textile arts such as quilting and weaving, material culture of pioneer Alabama, the archaeology of Southeastern Native Americans, the military including Civil War and WWI, and Victorian Era in Pike County,” Barley said. “It also gives us a glimpse into the lives of the people who made significant contributions to Pike County in various ways.” By Jaine Treadwell Published 6:22 pm Friday, July 4, 2014 Latest Stories Email the author Next UpBarley said one exhibit features Gov. Charles Henderson and another features, Pike County Sheriff Ben Reeves.“Most people who know anything about Pike County are familiar with Gov. Henderson and Sheriff Reeves,” Barley said. “But people often ask about the Bass Rooms and we have great story to tell about Anne Cloud Bass and how the museum came in possession of two rooms of furniture from the Bass house in Brundidge.”Barley said sharing stories is a favorite pastime of those who work at the museum and those who volunteer.

Bass and his wife Mary Ann Douglas Bass came to Pike County from Monroe County, Georgia in 1895. Bass was a Methodist minister and a highly regarded teacher. His son, Fletcher, became a respected and successful businessman in Brundidge.Fletcher Bass’ wish for his son was that he would show a flair for business. Walter ran the Brundidge Mercantile Company along with a construction company. He also dabbled in penny stocks. He believed that a man could amass a good size fortune by buying stock that sold for less than a dollar.Anne Cloud Bass grew up and lived her life knowing that she was well-heeled. She lived her life without a worry or concern about money. And, she certainly didn’t seem to relish having it.Neither Anne Cloud nor her brother ever married. They were the lone heirs to the Bass fortune left by their father. “Miss Annie Cloud” as she was fondly called, was a teacher. She felt teaching was her calling in life and she followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, Augustus C. Bass, both as a teacher and a leader in the Methodist church.It was through her teaching and the example she set in life that Anne Cloud Bass was most influential.She was one of other most knowledgeable teachers to have passed through the doors of Pike County High School. She never taught for money, only for the love of teaching.She had no family at home and graciously and willingly gave of her time to her students. She often stayed after school to tutor those who were having difficulty.Even after her students went off to college, they would come back on weekends and during vacations to seek her advice.Although there is nothing on record, it is believed that Anne Cloud Bass helped fund the education of a large number of young people in the Brundidge community. In character for her, she would have done so in secret.Because she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth, Anne Cloud Bass was able to travel extensively. She brought back to Brundidge first-hand knowledge of the people and places she had been. She brought the world to the doorsteps of her small, hometown community.She could have lived a life of luxury and privilege but she didn’t. Money was not needed for the things Anne Cloud Bass cherished most –knowledge and someone with whom to share it. She was able to do that as a schoolteacher and a Sunday school teacher.Anne Cloud Bass was killed in an automobile accident in 1974. The Pike Pioneer Museum (Pioneer Museum of Alabama) was named in her will, along with Pike Liberal Arts School and a Bible college in New York.At her brother’s death, the museum received the furnishings in her home. Two rooms at the museum are designated the Bass rooms.Walter Bass died in 1979. He left the entire portion of an estate estimated at $13 million to the Salvation Army, “where it could do the most good.”The City of Brundidge bought the Bass family home on Main Street and renovated it for use as City Hall.
