One of these complaints was filed by the newspaper Bawabat al-Ahram, which said that one of its reporters, Mohammed Ali, was prevented from taking photos when he went to a voting station in the Cairo suburb of Ain Shams and showed his press card.

It nonetheless announced at a press conference in Cairo on 20 April that the media had the right to cover both the voting and the vote count, but many reporters have in practice been prevented from attending vote count operations. “By banning journalists from reporting the partial results of a vote for the first time ever, the Egyptian authorities have shown that they are determined to clamp down even more on the dissemination of public interest information,” RSF’s Middle East desk said. “We call on the National Election Authority to ensure that journalists are able to exercise their right to attend vote count operations, as it promised.” February 6, 2021 Find out more News EgyptMiddle East – North Africa Freedom of expression The newspaper Al Mashhad told RSF that 30 of its reporters were denied permission to cover the vote count although they had previously filed all of the required papers within the stipulated deadlines, including a letter to the High Council for Media Regulation. to go further Follow the news on Egypt Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information February 1, 2021 Find out more Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein back home after four years in prison April 25, 2019 Clampdown on media coverage of Egypt’s constitutional referendum Detained woman journalist pressured by interrogator, harassed by prison staff News Less press freedom than ever in Egypt, 10 years after revolution News Egypt is ranked 163rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2019 World Press Freedom Index, two places lower than in 2018.

Required fields are marked * One of Pasadenaâ€™s most cherished institutions is turning 30 this year, and the public is invited to share in the celebration â€¦ and the good work.Founded in 1984, The Huntington Collection is a unique resale shop of Huntington Memorial Hospital that sells merchandise through consignment and qualified donations. All Huntington Collection proceeds benefit Huntington Hospital Senior Care Network, a nationally recognized program that helps older and disabled adults and their families remain healthy and independent.â€œThe Huntington Collection is a wonderful way for people to make a meaningful difference in the community while acquiring one-of-a-kind merchandise at really great prices,â€ says Betty MacInnes, founder of the Huntington Collection who remains a vital part of its operation. â€œOthers can make a difference by donating items that will turn into dollars and support the great work of Senior Care Network.â€The dollars of which MacInnes speaks are not insignificant. Earlier this year the Huntington Collection presented Huntington Hospital CEO Steve Ralph with a check in the amount of $230,000. It was the latest in a series of annual donations, which over the past three decades has surpassed $8 million.The Huntington Collection receives an extensive array of donated merchandise including clothing, china, crystal, jewelry, books, linens, kitchenware, toys, collectibles and decorative pieces. All are accepted and inspected under the trained eyes of volunteers and staff and then put out for sale if their condition is acceptable. In addition, The Huntington Collection accepts consignment items worth $250 or more after they have been appraised by qualified Huntington Collection appraisers. New merchandise is received every day.â€œWe try to make it easy for donors by offering an all-inclusive service for the appraisal, removal and sale of personal property,â€ says MacInnes. â€œA Huntington Collection appraiser meets with the donor; assesses that a Price and Pack is needed; and arranges for the pricing, packing and removal of all items to The Huntington Collection where they will be sold as consignment or donation. This service has proven to be ideal for older adults moving to a retirement or convalescent home.â€The Huntington Collection also offers month-end sales, usually held on the last Thursday or Saturday of each month, except holidays, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The sale features half price on all regular clothing plus featured sales on boutique clothing, linens, artwork and books. â€œBag Salesâ€ are also held three to four times a year where for $10 customers can fill a grocery bag to the brim with regular clothing and accessories. In addition, the Annex section of The Huntington Collection regularly features half price on all donated items including furniture, sofas, dining sets, armoires and rugs.None of this would be possible without MacInnes who created the shop in 1984 with the goal of supporting the hospitalâ€™s recently formed Senior Care Network. The Collection did not have a permanent home at the time; but MacInnes recruited volunteers to help run the sale and solicited donations of high-quality secondhand goods from the community, making the event a tremendous success.Soon after that initial sales event, and following The Huntington Collectionâ€™s move into a large space on Fair Oaks Avenue, MacInnes went to work filling the massive space with desirable items for purchase. In partnership with the Collectionâ€™s advisory committee â€” comprised of professionals from the retail, advertising and marketing industries, along with Collection volunteers â€” she led the store through decades of expansion.MacInnes now serves as the Collectionâ€™s assistant manager; and Linda Stephens, who has worked alongside MacInnes for 25 years, has taken on the role of managing the store. â€œBetty is so focused on the Collectionâ€™s success; this place is her lifeblood,â€ Stephens says. â€œShe has the kind of toughness that gets a lot done; and, at the same time, she remains wonderfully compassionate and patient.â€The Huntington Collection is located at 766 South Fair Oaks Avenue. It is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except Thursdays, when hours are from noon to 6:00 p.m. Further information may be obtained at www.thehuntingtoncollection.com.About Huntington HospitalHuntington Memorial Hospital, www.HuntingtonHospital.com, is a 625-bed not-for-profit hospital located in Pasadena, California.

The Bihar government has directed its secretariat employees to avoid wearing casuals like jeans and T-shirts with immediate effect to uphold “office culture and decorum.” They have been asked to come to work in formal clothes of sober colour.An order was issued to this effect by Additional Secretary of the General Administration Department (GAD) Shiv Mahadeo Prasad on August 28. However, it is not clear whether it is meant only for employees of the GAD or the entire secretariat staff.“The order issued by GAD usually means for all secretariat employees…we all have to comply with this order,” said Suman Kumar, a Secretariat staffer.Earlier in 2007, then Chief Secretary Ashok Kumar Chowdhary had issued a circular on dress code for government employees saying “loud, gaudy colours must be avoided.” That order had also listed formal wear for both men and women employees for both summer and winter.In 2018 then Chief Secretary Anjani Kumar Singh issued a circular asking government employees to wear khadi clothes at least twice a week to promote the national fabric.“Such orders come from time to time but not being followed or implemented in spirit…unless some hard rule comes into effect, a dress code for Secretariat staff in Patna is not possible”, said an employee retiring next June.

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to Email AppEmail AppShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to MessengerMessengerShare to SlackSlack Originally published Feb 2, 2012 9:00:00 AM, updated August 27 2017 Whether you’re just starting out with email marketing or you already have some experience sending marketing emails, you’ve probably wondered about the types of email communication you can send to your database.Should you nurture your subscribers with weekly newsletters? Are dedicated sends better at optimizing your sales and marketing funnel? What about email digests? These are all valid questions that marketing professionals should consider when selecting the right format to meet their email marketing goals .So which types of emails should you be sending? In this blog post, we’ll discuss the different types of email marketing communication and their respective advantages and disadvantages. This information should help you make both an educated decision when choosing the most appropriate email format to meet your specific goals.When deciding whether you should use email newsletters in your marketing strategy, you first need to determine your goal. What is it that you want your email newsletter to achieve? You might want to nurture your existing contacts and become the first brand they think of when they need a product or service in your industry. Or your goal might be to increase social sharing so you attract new people to your list. As you define your goal, think about what metrics you can use to track your progress. Email newsletters are characterized by three key advantages . First, they can spread your brand awareness. By building habitual communication with your email subscribers, you enable them to recognize your brand and associate it with a positive sentiment. Second, email newsletters can leverage existing content. Many companies do quick summaries of their most popular blog posts and link to the articles from their newsletter. Third, email newsletters give you the freedom to include different types of content that might be important to your organization. For instance, the same newsletter can contain a popular blog post, a new offer, an announcement of an upcoming event, information about a discount, and a link to a survey.Email newsletters are also characterized by some important disadvantages . First, they dilute the main call-to-action . If you include a series of blurbs or article summaries, the attention of your recipients will most likely be spread across these tidbits of information as opposed to staying focused on a certain element. Second, the design of a newsletter becomes a much more complicated task than other emails like dedicated sends. You’ll have to spend some time deciding on the right placement of images and text, alignment, and prioritization of information. If you want to reach a totally new audience and generate net new leads, you might want to try sponsorship emails. In sponsorship emails, you pay for inclusion of your copy in another vendor’s newsletter or dedicated send. The biggest advantage of sponsorship emails is that they are highly targeted, enabling you to be specific in defining the segment you want to reach. This allows you to get granular in identifying the different characteristics of your target audience–number of employees, geographic location, their interests and challenges, etc. Another advantage of sponsorship emails is that their ROI is very easy to determine. Because you already know how much you are paying the vendor, you only need to track the results you’re generating (visits, leads, sales) in order to determine what is the return on the cost you have paid.Of course, it’s a disadvantage that you have to pay for sponsorship emails. Vendors usually offer different payment packages, and this is where you enter the land of negotiation. The other big disadvantage of sponsorship emails is that their management requires a major marketing effort and tight control. “For this style of sponsorship to be successful, there needs to be a dedicated team behind it that understands data, brand synergies, and the ability to unearth unseen co-branding opportunities,” writes Jackie Fast, managing director at Slingshot Sponsorship. Transactional emails are the messages that get triggered by a specific action your contacts have taken, enabling them to complete that action. For instance, if you are signing up for a webinar, you will fill out a form and then receive a transactional (thank-you) email that provides you with the login information in order to join. Transactional emails are also the messages you receive from ecommerce sites like Amazon that confirm your order and give you shipment information and other details.The biggest advantage of transactional emails is that they enjoy a high click-through rate (CTR). Recipients open these communications and click on them. Take advantage of this dynamic, and include a highly customized call-to-action (maybe even as a p.s.) to leverage the fact that the subscriber is fresh and very actively engaged with your email communication. Unfortunately, one disadvantage of transactional emails is that they can add a barrier to entry. Sometimes the idea of taking yet another step to complete an action discourages recipients from completing the action altogether.With all the types of email communication at a marketer’s disposal, it’s easy to fall into the trap of sending your email recipients too much email. Therefore, it’s very important to regularly keep track of what messages you’re sending to who. That being said, it’s entirely possible to send all of these types of emails without spamming your list, and that’s where segmentation comes into play. A highly productive and effective email marketing campaign consists of segmented communication that touches prospects and leads at the right time with the right type of email to suit that recipient’s needs and preferences.

Lead nurturing introduces a tightly connected series of emails full of useful content with a coherent purpose. In this context, lead nurturing offers more advantages than just an individual email blast. Let’s look at some of the specific advantages of lead nurturing. First, it’s timely. Studies show that email response rates decline over the lead age, so you need to reach out to your contacts while they are fresh and actively engaged with your brand. Second, it’s automated. Once you set up lead nurturing, emails are sent out automatically according to the schedule you’ve set as new leads come in. This leads to a high return on a low investment. Third, it is targeted. According to HubSpot’s research , lead nurturing emails generate an 8% CTR compared to general email sends, which generate just a 3% CTR. In other words, targeted and segmented emails perform better than mass email communications.Lead nurturing also has some disadvantages that you should keep in mind. First, it results in less congruent buzz. Dedicated sends to your entire email database can generate a lot of buzz around your brand. Lead nurturing cannot quite achieve the same buzz effect because it is programmed to schedule fewer emails to segmented audiences. Second, it’s inviting to passive tracking. Because lead nurturing is automated and marketers often forget about it after they’ve set it up, it also tends to be under-reported. Email Design Digests are generally easier to consume than newsletters because they generally consist of links and lists. One popular option is the blog digest, which collects notifications about the articles you publish throughout a certain time frame and releases an email with the links. If you are blogging using HubSpot’s platform , your subscribers have the opportunity to set up this type of digest based on their preferences.Dedicated emails, also known as stand-alone emails, contain information about just one offer. For instance, you can use a dedicated email to notify your target audience about a new whitepaper you’ve released or invite them to attend an event that you’re hosting. Dedicated email sends have three main advantages . First, they help you set up the context to introduce a main call-to-action and really drive results in respect to that one offer. Second, they are easy to build. Once you have your email template in place, building dedicated sends should be easy. Unlike newsletters, dedicated emails don’t need to include many graphical elements to separate the different blocks of text and prioritize information. Third, they are easy to measure. When you promote one main message and call-to-action, it will be easy for you to track progress , such as click-through rate, conversion rate, and leads generated from the individual send.Dedicated email sends also have some disadvantages . First, with dedicated sends, the emailing schedule is less clear and potentially less consistent. You might use dedicated emails when you have published a new offer (which might be sporadic). Even if you decide to maintain a specific schedule, your subscribers might not realize it or expect communication from you because there is no clear connection between the separate sends. Second, it’s tough to include diverse content in a dedicated send, so you cannot add other calls-to-action that might also be important to your organization. Topics:
