Barclays dips as Abu Dhabi investor sells shares

first_img Tags: NULL One of the Middle East investors who pumped billions of pounds into Barclays has effectively sold a chunk of shares in the bank, sending its shares lower.Abu Dhabi’s exercised £131.6m warrants in the bank, equivalent to a 1.1 per cent stake, and simultaneously entered into a complex hedging arrangement with Nomura, it said in a statement after Thursday’s close.Nomura simultaneously executed a market placing of 220m shares, the statement said.By 8:43 a.m. Barclays shares were down 2.4 per cent at 296.75 pence.“Abu Dhabi still have upside exposure in the stock, but they’re taking some money off the table,” said Manoj Ladwa, senior trader at ETX Capital.Abu Dhabi committed to pump up to £4.75bn into Barclays two years ago as part of a controversial fundraising that allowed Barclays to avoid taking taxpayer funds, but was criticised for being too generous to the Middle East investors.It sold instruments equivalent to an 11 per cent stake in the bank in June 2009, making $2.5bn (£1.6bn) from the investment, but still held a stake.

Two housing is designed from site division. Divides the land, it was decided to design a separate family are two for live house in Kamakura Zaimokuza. Site of about a minute walk from the coast, is a gentle place to smell the sea wind.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaThere once, have left large trees and old private house, it had the dense. Irregular grounds shape plays a role, such as a fold relative to the surrounding, for the family to begin living in this place, and is likely to give us a rich relationship premonition of the land.Save this picture!First Floor PlanI thought that a site and a placement plan with the size of the building were important to prevent each other’s life interference, and to keep the moderate sense of distance with the neighborhood without using the wall when I decided a site boundary line. In addition, the setting and the placement plan of the boundary line repeated a fine adjustment because it was necessary to divide an area equally.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaI imagined it what kind of time each family spent at the same time where. And, being conscious of a connection with the outside, I examined the planning of two houses. It is half or less of the allowable value, and the building area is planned, but area of the floor space is not necessarily connected in the richness of the life. In the case of a house of Zaimokuza, this littleness makes life and outside close relations.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaThe environment that I can share visually consciously can live like a garden even if I cannot occupy each other’s land. The two houses have configuration similar, kitchen and dining on the first floor, bedroom and shared space is located on the second floor.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanI planned the position and the size of the window so that each life did not interfere it. The difficult operation planned size and placement using a tree only at a window carefully.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaGreen increases, and the garden becomes like grove of miscellaneous trees when a tree grows and, as a buffer zone of the whole area that included neighboring sites not a garden attached to merely house, prays the place such as the park for it being.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaRelations of the adjacent site and building.In the case of a division divided into a strip of paper form by residential land sale in lots, the life concludes in a site to depend on the connection road. However, I can make the relations between sites next to each other if I can set a boundary line while coordinating plottage by performing a placement plan and the planning of the building.I thought about which outside and relations you had to finish it at a minimum border wall and noted it on this occasion to operate a window, and not to face you directly. In addition, a planting plan allows the integral plan beyond the site boundary line by increasing a gentle border and continuity.Save this picture!SectionOf course plan it together; even if untie it, cannot go over the border each because the proprietary rights are independent sites. It is important that I consider future real estate value being aware of buying and selling of the land. By the sale in lots system of the current land building, such a method may not be easily realized.Save this picture!© Shinkenchiku-shaHowever, what we designer is concerned with for a division of not only the design but also the land and a stage of the buying and selling is necessary to do life wealthily without being bound by a framework called the possession, and to change uniform cityscape. It is not easy, but wants to be conscious as a person engaged in design of a house.Project gallerySee allShow lessOMA Fiction – Non Fiction: Exhibition, Map & MoreExhibitionPublic Natures: Evolutionary InfrastructuresPublications Share Architects: Naoya Kawabe Architect & Associates Area Area of this architecture project CopyHouses•Kamakura, Japan CopyAbout this officeNaoya Kawabe Architect & AssociatesOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKamakuraJapanPublished on December 23, 2015Cite: “House in Kamakura Zaimokuza / Naoya Kawabe Architect & Associates” 23 Dec 2015.

PFRA welcomes launch of Fundraising Standards Board

first_imgPFRA welcomes launch of Fundraising Standards Board The Public Fundraising Regulatory Association (PFRA) has welcomed the new Fundraising Standards Board, launched to the public this week, as “a significant development in raising and maintaining high standards in charitable fundraising.”Mick Aldridge, Chief Executive, said: “Over the last six years the PFRA has proved that self-regulation of face-to-face fundraising works. My hope for the Fundraising Standards Board is that it will see every form of fundraising achieving the same high standards and that the public can feel confident that, whichever way they choose to support a charity displaying the ‘tick’ logo, it is accountable to a higher authority if it fails to meet the obligations of the ‘fundraising promise’.”The PFRA is encouraging all of the 116 charities and 15 agencies that make up its membership to join the Fundraising Standards Board as well. However, it will continue to handle complaints from the public and stakeholders specifically about face-to-face fundraisers who don’t meet the requirements of the Institute of Fundraising code of practice. Advertisement Howard Lake | 16 February 2007 | News Aldridge explained: “The Board will always be the adjudicator of last resort for those who have not been satisfied by a member charities’ response to their complaint, but the PFRA will respond straight away to investigate problems with any face-to-face fundraiser, can usually resolve issues within 48 hours, and can make significantly stronger sanctions if complaints are upheld. “I hope that eventually all face-to-face fundraisers will carry the ‘tick’ logo on their clothing and materials as an outward sign to potential donors that it is unlikely that they will need to complain at all.”The PFRA has been driving the regulation of face-to-face fundraising on public highways and house-to-house collections since 2001. It works with the Charity Commission, Office of the Third Sector (OTS), Institute of Licensing, Institute of Fundraising and Association of Town Centre Managers to ensure that high standards of quality, integrity and transparency are maintained.In the face of continuing criticism of the medium, Aldridge added: “Those who have sought to criticise face-to-face fundraising demonstrate a profound ignorance of how modern charities work, the value of the medium to charities, and the robust regulatory controls in place to ensure standards. “Calls to remove fundraisers from towns and cities in the UK would deprive over half a million donors a year of a choice in how to give and charities of more than £200 million in income, from committed donors that might not otherwise be reached. “It is ridiculous to accuse the PFRA of being ineffectual, simply because it will not pander to such calls, when local authorities throughout the country are endorsing their partnerships with the PFRA as the best way to effectively control fundraising activity and dramatically reduce complaints.” Tagged with: Individual givingcenter_img  17 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 About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Foreign aid set to receive highest average donations in 2017 says Givey research

first_img Research by online donation platform Givey shows that foreign aid can expect to receive the highest average annual donations this year, at £57.Givey asked 2,000 UK adults what charitable causes they plan to support and how much they intend to donate this year. According to Givey, the £57 highest average donation foreign aid can expect is £14 above the national average of £43, and more than the expected average donation amounts for both cancer (£44) and children’s charities (£50).Top 10 causes according to average annual donation size for 2017:Foreign aid (£57)Animals and the environment (£54)Poverty and the homeless (£54)Children (£50)Cancer (£44)Human rights (£39)Mental health (£38)Elderly (£34)Heart disease (£33)Disabilities (£33)Previous research conducted by Givey has found that one in ten people nationwide are influenced by current affairs when it comes to choosing a cause to donate to.According Givey, 74% of UK adults give to charity each year, with London was the most charitable part of the country, and young people aged 18-34 more charitable than the national average.Neil Mehta, CEO of Givey, said:“It’s fantastic to see that the UK once again plans to give so generously to charity in 2017. All the causes listed on the poll are very worthy causes, and choosing one that means something to you personally is an important part of the donation process.“However, small charities are still so often overlooked in favour of high-profile names due to marketing and ease. Of course large-scale charities are doing amazing work in their respective fields, but it is a real shame that there are so many great small charities in the UK missing out on vital donations.” Advertisement Givey recently launched its ‘10 to 1’ report, which looks at 10 smaller, often overlooked charities that are supporting popular causes to help raise awareness of smaller charities, and encourage the public to consider donating to them.

Alto a la guerra de la policía contra personas negras y latinas

first_imgUn llamado de Monica Moorehead y Lamont Lilly, candidatos a presidente y vicepresidente por el Partido Workers World/Mundo Obrero.  Ha llegado el momento de abrir otro frente en la lucha contra la supremacía blanca. Lo que ocurrió en Dallas el 7 de julio – la muerte a tiros de policías – habría en el pasado y en circunstancias diferentes, suministrado a la clase dominante, a los políticos, a los medios de comunicación y a la policía, más armas de las que podría necesitar para imponer un efecto negativo en el movimiento Vidas Negras Importan y en la lucha contra el terror racista de la policía.El otoño de 2014 fue un punto alto para el movimiento Vidas Negras Importan. Miles de manifestantes a lo largo del país bloqueaban carreteras, puentes y centros comerciales por todos lados a raíz de los asesinatos por la policía de Eric Garner, Michael Brown y Tamir Rice.Pero después que dos policías de la ciudad de Nueva York fueron asesinados a tiros en diciembre de 2014, la presión sobre el movimiento fue tanta que algunos activistas cancelaron protestas. Tomó meses para que el movimiento se recuperase de la presión política orquestada por el establecimiento capitalista.Sin embargo, luego de los disparos en Dallas, la clase política capitalista hasta ahora no ha sido capaz de paralizar o hacer retroceder el movimiento. No es que no lo hayan intentado. Los comentaristas que defienden a la policía han tratado de culpar y satanizar el movimiento, culpándolo por la muerte de los policías en Dallas.Todo político que se topara con la oportunidad de hablar ante un micrófono estaba deseoso de expresar su solidaridad con la policía, llamar a todo el mundo para que apoyara a la policía y amonestar al movimiento para que detuviera su “retórica anti-policía”. Va a haber muchísimo más de eso en los próximos días y semanas, especialmente comenzando con el discurso del presidente Obama en Dallas en el memorial de los policías muertos.Pero el día después de los disparos en Dallas, las calles de Atlanta, Nueva York, San Francisco, St. Paul, Baton Rouge y muchas otras ciudades de todo el país, e incluso alrededor del mundo, se llenaron de miles de manifestantes exigiendo justicia para Alton Sterling y Philando Castile, los dos hombres negros ejecutados por la policía la semana pasada y capturado en vídeo.Según los informes, desde la muerte de Sterling y Castile, más de una docena de personas de color han sido asesinadas por la policía, incluyendo a cinco latinos. Estos homicidios han recibido poca o ninguna atención nacional, excepto a través de Twitter.Hasta este momento, la indignación masiva por las últimas víctimas de la guerra de la policía contra negros y latinos es tan profunda y tan poderosa, que las personas están diciendo por su negativa a suspender la lucha, “No, esta vez no vamos a permitir que Dallas sea utilizado como excusa para culparnos y detenernos”.Incluso atletas de alto perfil como Carmelo Anthony, Serena Williams y Colin Kaepernick están pronunciándose. También hay rumores de que otros atletas de alto perfil, como el equipo de baloncesto estadounidense, tienen la intención de boicotear los Juegos Olímpicos o de llevar a cabo una protesta simbólica en los próximos Juegos de Río.Construir amplia solidaridad antirracista¿Por qué es esto tan importante? Para que la policía sea exitosa en su guerra contra negros y latinos, el movimiento en contra de esta guerra debe ser marginado, aislado, demonizado y en última instancia reprimido.Cuanto más se hace evidente que la represión policial no sólo es impopular, sino que ya no será tolerada por las masas que se enfrentan a un trato deshumanizador constantemente, más difícil se le hace a la policía y al sistema, matar y encarcelar a las personas de color en una escala cada vez mayor. Incluso el llamado para desarmar a la policía es cada vez más popular entre las masas.La policía depende del apoyo político de las personas, o al menos la indiferencia del público sobre sus acciones. El establecimiento capitalista, que depende de la represión policial para mantener su dominio sobre la población, entiende esto muy bien y utiliza energía y recursos interminables para mantener el apoyo político a la policía.La policía está muy consciente de esta necesidad política, sobre todo cuando se hace evidente que están perdiendo una masa crítica de apoyo.La represión policial racista no se puede terminar de una vez y por todas, hasta que este sistema capitalista en descomposición, que se está convirtiendo cada vez más desesperadamente dependiente de la represión policial, termine. Debe ser reemplazado por un sistema que se base en la satisfacción de las necesidades humanas, no en la explotación para obtener ganancias, y ese sistema es el socialismo.Los acontecimientos recientes indican que la oposición a la represión policial ha alcanzado un punto de inflexión.Ha llegado el momento de abrir un nuevo frente en la lucha contra la represión policial. Se podría llamar el movimiento “No al apoyo de la guerra policial contra las personas negras”.Al menos dos condiciones son esenciales para la apertura de ese frente:Uno, tiene que ser sobre la base de la participación de las masas, con acciones militantes locales, pero también nacionales e incluso internacionales.Dos, es absolutamente esencial que no sólo sean las/os jóvenes negros y latinos que salgan a las calles, sino los blancos también, y no sólo la gente joven, sino personas de todas las generaciones, nacionalidades, géneros, expresiones de género, capacidades, etc.El porcentaje de jóvenes blancas/os que han salido a las calles en apoyo a Las Vidas Negras Importan ha ido en aumento. Este es un buen augurio para la lucha, sobre todo si se vuelve consistente y sigue creciendo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
