We want people’s generosity to be celebrated and hopefully inspire others, particularly the wealthy, to give more to good causes. The Rich List provides the ideal high profile platform for doing so.”You can find details, analysis of the guide, and a search facility at the Sunday Times’ Web site. The Sunday Times today publishes its “definitive guide to the richest 1,000 in Britain and Ireland”, a standard reference publication for many fundraising researchers. The 102-page guide is published free with the newspaper.The 15th annual survey of Britain’s rich has been compiled by Philip Beresford and Stephen Boyd. As well as biographical details of the richest 1,000, the publication includes analysis of the data by geography, profession, company and other criteria.Fundraising researchers will find much of it of interest, in particular the tables listing the top 20 political donors and the thirty generous givers to charity. This is the first time that the guide has listed charitable giving. The table of charitable donors was produced from responses to a questionnaire sent out by the Sunday Times and The Giving Campaign to all the members of the previous year’s Rich List asking them about their charitable contributions. It takes into account personal donations, donations to or from personal charitable foundations or trusts, and donations from companies in which individuals hold a controlling interest. The table is ranked according to a giving index, which is calculated as the percentage of their personal wealth that each member donated to charity last year.

Anti-immigrant law protested in North Carolina

first_imgBy BlackGirlRedStarRaleigh, N.C.Activists gathered in front of North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory’s mansion on Oct. 29 to protest the signing of anti-immigrant House Bill 318. This bill has several provisions which all act to harm immigrants and workers, such as prohibiting the use of consular documents as identification and proof of residency. Additionally, it would prevent cities and counties from choosing to become “sanctuary” cities, where local governments could determine the extent to which local law enforcement collaborates with federal immigration agencies and procedures.Speakers highlighted the issues facing immigrant families, students, youth and others who were present at the action, decrying the deportation of undocumented people and reminding the crowd of the contributions that immigrants have made to the community and the state of North Carolina. Six brave immigrant activists from various organizations and backgrounds took the streets, linked together with handcuffs covered by polyvinyl chloride tubes that read “Black + Brown Power” and “Stop Hate!” Ivanna Gonzales, one of these protestors, said, “HB 318 is an attack on immigrant workers and a distraction from the indignities that all North Carolinian workers suffer every day. I won’t stand for it.” For several hours, police and other officials cut through the PVC tubes to separate these determined activists, as they and the crowd demanded an end to HB 318. This powerful action succeeded in sending a message to those in power that the community is watching. This community will continue to interrupt their comfort, at their front doors if necessary, until they put an end to these hateful, unnecessary laws that deliberately attack immigrants in North Carolina and across the country.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

A Single Bench of Justice N. Anand Venkatesh observed that when it comes to the conduct of advocates, there will be zero tolerance shown by the Court and it will ensure that the activities of some advocates do not spoil the image of the entire profession. The remarks were made after the Bench was informed that some Advocates had made an attempt to break open the lock in a disputed property and tried to take forcible possession of the same. The Court was further apprised that everyday a group of persons, purportedly advocates, come to the subject property and create law and order problem. “It is reported that some of the advocates also form part of this unlawful assembly Due to the presence of the advocates, it is reported that the respondent police is hesitating to give police protection to the property,” the Judge recorded in his order. The Petitioner had approached the High Court against such miscreants and stated that even the Police is hesitant in registering a complaint against them. The Judge observed that such practices though were prevalent in the past, the situation was brought under control in light of stringent action taken by the Court by suspending some of the advocates. “This is the third occasion, in the last one month, where the notice of this Court has been drawn to the advocates indulging themselves in criminal activities by forming part of an unlawful assembly and making attempts to grab properties,” the Judge said. He noted that such despicable practices seem to have revived during the Lockdown period and was of the view that the Court must come down heavily and stop such activities before it goes out of control. In this backdrop, the Bench has called upon the concerned authorities to scrutinise the available photographs and video footage, identify the miscreant advocates and submit a report indicating their names. The report will also form the basis for the Court to give a complaint before the Bar Council of Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry against the concerned advocates for necessary action. “When it comes to the conduct of the advocates, there will be zero tolerance shown by this Court and this Court has to ensure that the activities of some of the advocates do not spoil the image of the entire profession,” the order stated. The matter is listed for orders on March 2, 2021. Case Title: PS Kirubakaran v. Commissioner of Police & Ors. Click Here To Download Order Read OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Weekly Market Review: June 10, 2019

first_imgThe tariff dispute between the U.S. and China is a clash between the world’s two largest economies. The tariff dispute between the U.S. and Mexico pits the world’s largest economy up against the globe’s 15th largest, coupled with an unequal relationship between the neighboring countries. 80% of Mexico’s exports are shipped to the United States, while just 16% of U.S. exports are sold to Mexico. President Trump’s greatest leverage was that an extended trade battle with the U.S.A. could tip Mexico’s economy into a recession, an outcome that Mexican President Lopez Obrador had to avoid. Late last Friday night (6/07/19), the White House was satisfied with the progress made regarding border security and pulled the 5% Mexican tariffs off the table (source: BTN Research).Fed Chairman Jerome Powell may not have explicitly said a rate cut was going to occur in the near term, but that’s what the U.S. stock market heard. Powell’s commitment to “act as appropriate to sustain the (economic) expansion” increased the odds of a summer rate cut, three days before a sluggish jobs report from May 2019 showed only 75,000 new hires, well below the average 209,000 new jobs created each month over the last 5 years (source: Department of Labor).A week ago (6/03/19), the S&P 500 was in the middle of a near 7% tumble driven by trade turf wars and a declining global growth outlook. Before Chairman Powell came to the rescue, a market correction seemed more likely than a late week rally. By Friday’s close however, the S&P 500 was back to a +15.7% YTD gain (source: BTN Research).Notable Numbers for the Week:SIX-TO-ONE RETURN – The average American worker who retires next year (in 2020) will have paid $36,000 in Medicare taxes during his/her working lifetime, far less than the $229,000 in Medicare benefits that he/she is projected to receive. The projected lifetime benefit total is net of Medicare premiums paid by the retiree (source: Urban Institute).MONEY – The top 10% of taxpayers received 47% of the $10.2 trillion of adjusted gross income (AGI) earned nationwide in tax year 2016. The bottom 90% of taxpayers received the other 53% of AGI (source: Internal Revenue Service).SUBJECT TO A TARIFF? – 35% of the auto parts used by domestic auto makers are manufactured outside the United States, then imported into America (source: Deutsche Bank).SERVED OUR COUNTRY – The 18.2 million military veterans in the United States are split 91/9 between men and women (source: 2017 American Community Survey).© 2019 Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual), Springfield, MA 01111-0001.

All-Star Musicians Announce Touring Tribute To Bill Withers

first_imgThere’s no denying that Bill Withers is a legend. From his soul drenched “Lean On Me” to the ever-funky “Use Me,” it’s no surprise that Withers found himself in the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame after a particularly potent career in music.While Withers no longer performs, fortunately, a number of top-notch musicians are coming together for a touring tribute to the legendary soul man. Dubbed The New Stew, this exciting super group features Corey Glover (Living Colour, Galactic) on vocals, Roosevelt Collier (The Lee Boys) on Lap Steel/ Pedal Steel, Yonrico Scott (Derek Trucks Band, Royal Southern Brotherhood) on percussion, Dave Yoke (Susan Tedeschi Band, Dr. John, Scrapomatic) on guitar, Jared Stone (Stone’s Stew) on drums, and Matt Slocum (Oteil and the Peacemakers, Col.
