He claimed that the “unregulated sector” would experience a boom due to stringent new regulations imposed on banks and that risk “will move from the regulated, more transparent banking sector to a less regulated, more opaque sector”.But a hedge fund industry source told City A.M.: “The idea that the hedge fund sector is unregulated is complete tosh. And the idea that we are all better-off if banks are handling risk is absurd because they are the ones that bankrupted themselves.”“It’s much better to disperse risk among smaller players who are small enough to fail,” said the source.But despite the framing of his remarks, Cohn is now the third senior banking executive to speak out against anti-banker measures recently, after Barclays’ Bob Diamond said it was time for banks to stop saying sorry and JP Morgan’s Jamie Dimon said that overly generalised criticism of bankers was “unfair”. whatsapp Share Thursday 27 January 2011 8:39 pmlast_img read more

Mothers’ Union making their voices heard across Africa

first_img Rector Belleville, IL Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Mothers’ Union: “The fifth Instrument of communion” according to the former archbishop of Canterbury. Photo: ACNS[Anglican Communion News Service] Anyone who has attended an Anglican church event in Africa will have encountered members of the Mothers’ Union (MU). A casual glance might lead you to believe they are merely colorfully clad women there to add flare to the church’s worship, but you would be mistaken.The Mothers’ Union in Africa is a force to be reckoned with, particularly when it comes to social justice. This Anglican organization has around 1.3 million members in countries right across the continent, and when these women speak, they are heard.Year after year, MU members speak out against a range of issues which continue to blight societies in Africa today. Child abuse, human trafficking, corruption, poverty, healthcare — little is out of bounds for the women in blue.They also run various initiatives including literacy and development projects, parenting programs and microfinance initiatives. They campaign to end violence against women and the trafficking of women and children. All these activities are aimed at attaining their vision of a world where “God’s love is shown through loving, respectful, and flourishing relationships”.In Nigeria, the MU recently took center stage when the President of Mothers’ Union and wife of the Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Nkasiobi Okoh categorically stated publicly that Anglican women would not support the legislation allowing girls to be married underage.This at a time when fierce debates raged in the country about an issue that some sectors of society strongly supported. Instead of staying quiet, the MU stood on one of their major objectives of “promoting conditions in society favorable to stable family life and the protection of children.”In Mozambique, the MU in the Diocese of Niassa, with the help of other church members, helped build a massive brick church where none had existed before. It was impressive to see women, who are generally considered the weaker sex by many in this country, doing ‘man’s work’: helping prepare the building for flooring, ferrying bricks and even roofing sheets.Instead of sitting back and relaxing, the MU decided to join hands with other members of church to bring to fruition, the church’s long time dream of a big brick church building to act as a coordinating center for other smaller churches within the diocese.The MU is an integral part of the Anglican Church in Ethiopia, which is part of the Episcopal Area of the Horn of Africa. In Gambella, one of the most troubled regions in the country, the MU provides literacy programs and other practical help to local communities. Just recently, the Mothers’ Union there announced that it would provide theological and practical survival and life skills to women across 70 villages in the region.In Zambia, the Anglican Church, and the MU in particular, has received international acclaim for being strong advocates against gender-based violence. The statistics on gender-based violence in Zambia are shocking: international charity CARE estimates that at least 47 percent of women in Zambia have experienced physical violence with at least one in every five women having experienced sexual violence.Former Mother’s Union President for the Diocese of Lusaka, Dr Fridah Sakala Kazembe, recently urged all women to “adhere to the objectives of the Mother’s Union in order to create safe havens for women and children in our families.” She emphasized that strictly following the MU objectives would reduce the occurrence of broken families and consequently would increase safety for families.In Botswana, the MU recently built houses and donated them to the less privileged in their country. They also run an Orphan Day Care Centre supporting 60 orphaned children between the ages of two and six. About 150 children have since graduated from the center and are now in formal education. These children return to the center each week for a progress check, a meal and help with their school work.The Mothers’ Union worldwide believes prayer should undergird its work. Each year, MU organizes a Wave of Prayer with each diocese given a set day to pray for other dioceses, and within each diocese each branch is given a specific time to pray. This gives a sense of unity in prayer for one another as the wave of prayer moves from branch to branch and from diocese to diocese. Perhaps this is why MU in Africa continues to have such a huge impact on society.It is said youth are the ‘backbone’ of the Church in Africa. Nevertheless, the Mothers’ Union with its numbers and networks, its seemingly relentless energy, the pride with which they don their colorful uniforms and the aggressive way they strike at poverty and injustice, gives substance to Archbishop Rowan Williams’ comments at a World Conference of Church meeting in Brazil:“When I’ve said, in the past year or so, that the Mothers’ Union is the fifth Instrument of Unity in the Anglican Communion, I’m not joking. I think it is the most powerful lay movement in the Anglican World; it is one which does far more for education and development than any other agency in the Anglican Communion and, more than any other agency, it builds relationships at grass roots level between ordinary believers working for change. If that isn’t an Instrument of unity, I don’t know what is.” Tags Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Rector Smithfield, NC Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

She will take over from Richard Taylor when he stands down at the end of his three-year term in July at the Institute’s AGM.Bringans joined the British Heart Foundation as Director of Fundraising in December 2015. Before that she was Director of Global Fundraising and Communications at VSO, and spent 16 years at Macmillan Cancer Support where she became Director of Fundraising. She has also held senior roles with Leonard Cheshire Disability and Battersea Dogs & Cats Home.She takes over the voluntary role of Chair following two immensely challenging years for the fundraising profession, during which the Institute, other sector bodies and individual charities have responded to criticism of some fundraising practices by some charities and their agencies. Some of these challenges are yet to play out: these include understanding of the implications for prospect research, for example, of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the implementation of the Fundraising Preference Service (or whatever it might be renamed).The implications of Brexit on statutory funding and individual giving, political challenges to the UK’s overseas aid funding, and reports of declining trust in charities and other civic bodies add to the challenges faced by the Institute and the fundraising sector over the next three years.The vacancy for a new Chair was advertised in January 2017.Richard TaylorRichard Taylor, Chair of the IoF, welcomed Bringans’ appointment. He said that she takes over when “we have a bold new strategy in place which is all about representing and championing the fundraising profession so that we can all achieve high levels of excellent fundraising across the UK.”He added: “I know Amanda will relish the opportunity to lead us in delivering our ambitions, and those of our members and fundraisers, so that charities can raise even more money to make the world a better place. Amanda will be an excellent Chair and someone that our members will be able to look to for leadership and inspiration.”“It has been a huge privilege for me to be Chair of the Institute of Fundraising and I wish Amanda all the best in the role. I know that she will have the full support of an amazing community of fundraisers behind her.”Bringans herself emphasised the breadth of the fundraising sector when she described her appointment as Chair-elect as a “huge privilege”.She said: “I know how important the IoF is to so many fundraisers and charities across the UK. Whether it is providing support for the sole fundraiser in a small local charity or a specialised fundraising team in a large international charity, the IoF has an important role to play in training, representing and championing fundraisers.” About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Getting Ready for Seed Delivery

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Getting Ready for Seed Delivery Determine field planting order. It’s important to know which varieties you’ll be planting first, so the dealer can place your seed in the proper order in storage. A little preplanning can save time when you get busy. “In the rush of planting, you won’t want the seed you need first to be stuck behind other varieties,” Welker says. Check seed tags. After seed delivery, review bag tags or super box tags so you are aware of management guidelines for seed treatments. “Knowing these requirements in advance helps prevent slowdowns during planting,” Welker says.Maintain handling equipment. Check to make sure your tenders, conveyors, and augers are in working order and ready for the season. Worn augers could damage seed and reduce germination.Stay safe. “During this hectic time, make safety a priority,” Welker says. He advises wearing personal protective equipment and long sleeves when handling seed to prevent contact with seed treatments should a bag or box break open. Also, avoid stacking pallets or bins more than four high and make sure seed containers are tied down adequately when transporting over the road. Getting Ready for Seed DeliveryMelissa BellSeed delivery trucks are rolling across the state as growers get ready for the 2016 growing season. Finding the proper place to store your seed is top of the list. Melisa Bell with Mycogen Seeds says, “A clean, dry storage area is essential to maintain seed purity and quality.” She  adds that maintaining a consistent temperature and dry conditions is also a top priority to protect your seed investment, “Temperature swings can impact the integrity of the seed; and, if the bags get wet, it can lead to the seed germinating in the bag.”She also advises that closely checking your delivery to make sure it is what you ordered is vital, especially with the complicated mix of hybrids and varieties that constitute a grower’s shipment today. She says organizing your delivery now is another way to save time at planting, “Because the seed you really need in a hurry will be stuck at the back behind several large pallets; that is just always the way it seems to work.”  Bell said, if you do not have room for proper storage and handling of seed, you could leave part of your order at the dealer until you need it.While getting your planter calibrated is important, making sure your seed handling equipment is also in good shape is an item for your to do list. Bell told HAT, “Attention to these preparations and precautions will help minimize downtime and pave the way for a successful planting season,”Planning for a safe and efficient planting season begins with good preparation and organization now.  Here are a few tips from  Jason Welker, Mycogen Seeds commercial agronomist:Plan for seed storage. Make sure you have a readily accessible indoor area that is large enough to store the seed and still leave space to move equipment as needed. If you don’t have adequate storage, arrange to leave seed at the dealership until it’s needed for planting.Prepare facilities. A clean, dry storage area is essential to maintain seed purity and quality. Here’s a checklist:Sweep out your on-farm seed storage area to eliminate sand or debris that could hamper forklift operations when moving pallets and bags.Check for and repair roof or building leaks to keep seed from getting wet.Prevent seed damage by controlling bird and mice populations.Check facility ventilation and, if necessary, open doors to increase airflow.Replace any burned-out light bulbs in the storage area so you can read seed tags easily.
