It will give families across the UK the chance to turn their traditional Boxing Day walk into a moment of fundraising, fun and reconnecting with nature. The others are due to launch early next year.WWF and Open used sprint methodology to develop the events fast – creating, testing, learning and launching in one week. The sprint week brought together a hand picked team of fundraisers, strategists, project managers and creatives from WWF and Open. Working in one room as one team, the group collaborated in real-time, sharing roles and responsibilities to hit their deadlines.Louise Lai, Client Services Director, Open said:“A sprint week like this is about three things; ambition, planning and teamwork. Everyone must share the same ambition from day one. You need an air-tight plan to hit all your deadlines. And most importantly, you need a team who are empowered to make decisions, be flexible and leave old ways of working at the door.”Caroline Appleton, Fundraising Innovation Lead, WWF added: Advertisement Tagged with: Events virtual event “In just five days we took three new event ideas from concept to execution, a process that would usually take months. Now we can test, learn, fail, win and adapt in the fastest, most cost-effective way.” The impetus behind the project was articulated by Kerry Blackstock, WWF’s Director of Relationship Marketing, at a recent Charity Benchmarks seminar. She said:“We’re great at regular giving but, as this study highlights, like many charities we have a need to diversify. You can see that our spend on events has been relatively low and so was our revenue. So that’s a good example of an area where we’re investing and innovating.” WWF creates 3 virtual events in a week
Four days before the midterm election, the U.S. “provocateur in chief” spewed poison deeds and words. He ordered 15,000 federal troops to police the border with Mexico. And he called for shooting any refugee trying to cross the border who throws stones.While Trump isn’t the first U.S. president to send troops off to commit war crimes, he may well be the first to order a massacre of civilians on CSPAN. Two days later, after some troops laid barbed wire at the border, he praised the “beauty” of the wire.When this president lies — which is when he breathes — he does it without mincing words. Some mistake that for being frank. It’s really being fascist. He gives a green light to the worst reactionary scum of capitalist U.S. society.This particular attack on the refugees aims to provoke his racist, anti-immigrant base at campaign rallies. The result? Armed fascist “militia” say they’ll patrol the border. Overseas, the Nigerian army used Trump’s words to justify gunning down 49 civilians.Those opposing Trump are organizing solidarity with the refugees from Central America. It’s now an integral part of opposing Trumpism. Worldwide, the Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Campaign has called for a Nov. 9 action against all walls, from those in Palestine to the one on the U.S. border with Mexico.Closer to home, military veterans appealed to active-duty GIs sent to the border to refuse and resist. Rory Fanning, former U.S. Army Ranger and War-Resister, and Spenser Rapone, former U.S. Army Ranger and Infantry Officer, War-Resister, write:“To all active-duty soldiers:“Your commander in chief is lying to you. You should refuse his orders to deploy to the southern U.S. border should you be called to do so. Despite what Trump and his administration are saying, the migrants moving north towards the U.S. are not a threat.“These small numbers of people are escaping intense violence.“In fact, much of the reason these men and women — with families just like yours and ours — are fleeing their homes is because of the U.S. meddling in their country’s elections. Look no further than Honduras, where the Obama administration supported the overthrow of a democratically elected president who was then replaced by a repressive dictator.“These extremely poor and vulnerable people are desperate for peace. Who among us would walk a thousand miles with only the clothes on our back without great cause?“Consider this as you are asked to confront these unarmed men, women and children from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. …“By every moral or ethical standard, it is your duty to refuse orders to ‘defend’ the U.S. from these migrants. History will look kindly upon you if you do. There are tens of thousands of us who will support your decision to lay your weapons down.” (tinyurl.com/ya8dwn6v)Workers World joins this call and its promise that tens of thousands will support GIs who refuse to become war criminals.Solidarity with the refugees!‘Turn the Guns Around’ Mutunies, Soldier Revolts and Revolutions.

Home / Daily Dose / Mortgage Delinquencies Experience First Increase in Seven Years Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Black Knight Inc. released its First Look report Thursday highlighting the main causes of past-due mortgages in September 2017. This data was pulled from Black Knight’s loan-level database, which represents the majority of the national mortgage market.September experienced its first annual rise in mortgage delinquencies since July 2010, mainly as a result of hurricane impact, to 4.40 percent according to Black Knight. Over 2.6 million properties are 30 or more days past-due but not in foreclosure in September 2017; 80,000 more than the same time last year. . While non-current mortgages jumped by 9 percent month-over-month, or roughly 214,000, mainly driven from Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, monthly foreclosure starts were at their lowest in more than 17 years. Areas covered by post-foreclosure action moratoriums experienced starts as low as 90 percent, with total foreclosure starts landing at 45,200 in September and decreasing 17.4 percent month-over-month.DS News reached out to Black Knight for a comment on Florida’s improving non-current rates prior to Hurricane Irma: “Florida had the highest non-current mortgage rates of any state for almost five full years–from September 2008 through August 2013. The state’s solid improvement in the years since has helped it climb from number 50 among all states ranked by lowest share of past due mortgages to 28th. In the wake of Irma, Florida has seen–thus far–a 47 percent jump in its non-current rate, dropping it all the way back to 47th place. The rise in Florida’s non-current rate is likely to continue in October.”Total U.S. loan delinquency increased 11.85 percent compared to August 2017, with the number of properties 30 or more days past due without being in foreclosure landing at 2.25 million, up 242,000 compared to August. Total U.S. foreclosure pre-sale inventory dropped 0.7 percent and fell 30.1 percent year-over-year. FEMA-declared hurricane disaster areas accounted for the bulk of increases with non-current inventory raising by 84,000 or 48 percent in Irma disaster areas and 52,000 or 67 percent in areas related to Harvey.Prior to the hurricanes, Florida and Texas were ranked 22nd and 20th by non-current mortgage rates; these states have since jumped to 5th and 3rd respectively.The full datasets can be viewed here.

A Bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice GS Kulkarni, among other instructions, directed the Special Juvenile Police Unit (SJPU) to give the court reasons in writing if the victim’s family, guardian or legal counsel could not be put to notice regarding the court’s proceedings. When an application is made on behalf of the prosecution, it would be the duty of the office of the public prosecutor to issue a notice of hearing of such application to the child’s family or as the case may be, the guardian, and where a legal counsel on behalf of the child is already on record, to such legal counsel, along with all relevant documents and the record necessary for effective participation in the proceedings. The Bench held that before such an application is heard, the trial Court must ascertain the status of service of notice, and if it so found that the notice has not been issued, the court may make such reasoned order as it may deem fit to secure ends of justice taking into account any emergent situations that warrant dealing with the application in the absence of the victim. The Court held that if the victim’s family does not appear despite effective notice, the court may proceed to hear the matter. The Bench passed the order on a PIL filed by Arjun Malge, who works with child victims of sexual abuse and their families, across Mumbai. He also acts as a Support Person in child sexual abuse cases as per the orders of the Child Welfare Committee in view of Rule 4(7) of POCSO Rules. Advocate Somasekhar Sundaresan had submitted that none of the following provisions are practised- Section 40 of the POCSO Act, Rule 4 sub rule 13 of POCSO Rule 2020 and Section 439(1-A) of CrPC. Section 40 of the POCSO Act states that the victim has a right to be represented/assisted by a legal aid lawyer. Rule 4 (13) of POCSO Rule 2020 states that the Police should inform the victim about court proceedings including bail applications moved, next date of the court proceedings etc. Section 439 (1-A) CrPC was an amendment introduced in 2018, which requires the victim to be notified in case a bail application is moved by the accused in certain categories of rape cases. “The Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act (2012) was enacted with a view to protect children from sexual abuse and to ensure speedy justice to minor victim of sexual assault. Section 40 r/w Rule 4 of the POCSO Act, 2012 envisages the right of the minor victims to participate in the justice dispensing process in a fair manner and thereby requires that a victim be informed about every court proceeding,” the petition stated. Moreover, “The Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2018 was brought into effect whereby Section 439 (1-A) of the Criminal Procedure Code, mandates the presence of the informant or any person authorized by him at the time of hearing of the application for bail moved by the accused implicated under sub-section (3) of section 376 or section 376AB or section 376DA or section 376DB of the Indian Penal Code.” The Bench gave directions for a copy of the judgment to be circulated to all presiding officers of all Sessions Courts in Maharashtra, the Director-General and Superintendent of Maharashtra Police, Director of Prosecution, State of Maharashtra and Maharashtra State Legal Services Authorities.Next Story
