The charity also received the larget total amount from customers, over £25 million.Indeed, customers have remained consistent in their support: the top 10 charities they donated to have not changed since the previous year.The top charities in terms of customer donations (to the nearest 1,000) were:• Cancer Research UK: 545k• British Heart Foundation: 372k• British Red Cross: 336k• Oxfam: 323k• NSPCC: 171k• RSPB: 169k• RSPCA: 149k• Barnardo’s: 148k• Save the Children: 135k• Dogs Trust: 127kThe National Trust, which would otherwise top this list, is excluded because the researchers classified transaction as membership payments rather than donations. Traditional payment methods like cash still more popular than digital, says Halifax Giving Monitor Photo: Tip jar by Rob Hyron on Shutterstock.com 117 total views, 1 views today Charity donors are much more likely to give via traditional payment methods than online or via text, according to research published in the annual Halifax Giving Monitor.In the past year only 9% of donors have given by text and 13% online.The research is based on internal customer data at Halifax and a consumer survey of over 2,000 respondents prepared on its behalf by Marketing Sciences.The top methods of giving over the past year were:• Cash: 66%• Direct debit: 25%• Justgiving/other online giving site: 13%• Text donation: 9%• By card directly to charity: 8%• By card over the phone: 2%• Payroll giving: 2%• ATM giving: 1%(Base: Charity donors i.e. all ever donating to charity (1767) = 88% of all consumers)Customer data includedThis is the first time that customer data has been included in the Halifax Giving Monitor. Looking just at that, 36.5% of customers have donated to charity by either direct debit, standing order, credit card or faster payment in the last year. This is an increase of 7.3% in the past year, amounting to £833 million. A total of 2.8 million Halifax customers made regular donations to charity by direct debit, working out as an average of £82 per donor.People over 65 are the most likely to donate through their bank account, with two fifths (40%) of customers in that age range making a donation in this way.Online payments increasingHalifax notes that payments and donations via JustGiving, Virgin Money Giving increased by 12% over the previous year. However, they still make up just 6.7% of identifiable customer spend in the last year.While payments through Just Giving, Virgin Money Giving and Paypal made up just 6.7% of identifiable customer spend in the last year, this is an increase of 12% on the previous year, when only 6% of identifiable spend was through these channels.Nick Young, Head of Halifax Current Accounts said: Advertisement About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Demonstrators marched from the United Nations to the Saudi U.N. Mission on Aug. 21 to protest the kingdom’s persecution of Shia Muslims and its refusal to allow the rebuilding of Islamic graves and holy sites it has destroyed.They demanded the release of imprisoned Shia community leader Ayatollah al-Nimr and an end to the detention and torture of pilgrims visiting the destroyed sites. The march also condemned the Saudi kingdom’s bombing of the people of Yemen and funding of terrorist violence in Syria. Saudi airstrikes have killed thousands of Yemenis since March.The event was endorsed by YaFatimaZahra.com, the Shia Association of North America, the United Muslim Foundation of North America, the Al Mahdi Foundation, the International Action Center, the United National Antiwar Coalition, and several masjids and Islamic schools in the New York metropolitan area.Muslims in united march against Saudi destruction in Yemen and Syria.WW photo: Anne PrudenSaudi Arabia and Israel are Washington’s two main allies in the Middle East.In the 1920s, with British support, the Saudi family used terror, force and massacre to seize control of most of the Arabian peninsula. It persecuted and murdered Muslims who did not accept the puritanical ideology of Wahabism, which it used to justify its rule.Thousands were hanged from trees in the holy cities of Mecca and Medina. On April 21, 1925, King Ibn Saud demolished mausoleums in Jannat ul Baqi, where relatives and companions of the Prophet Muhammad are buried. Also destroyed were the tombs of his mother, Bibi Amina; his wife, Bibi Khadijah; his grandfather, Abu Talib; and his uncle, Abu Talib. That day is commemorated by Shia Muslims around the world as the Day of Sorrow.Saudi “puritanism” did not stop the royal despots from turning over Arabia’s vast oil reserves to the Arabian American Oil Company (ARAMCO), controlled by a very non-Islamic dynasty, the Rockefellers. Nor does it stop Saudi royals from today making huge indirect investments in the racist state of Israel.In the 1970s, ARAMCO was in theory taken over by the house of Saud. But in an agreement engineered by Henry Kissinger, it continues to pay tribute to Wall Street and the military-industrial complex, subsidizing U.S. banks and arms companies with hundreds of billions of dollars. ARAMCO supplies ExxonMobil with oil at below market prices and U.S. executives still sit on its board.Israel’s 1967 and 1973 wars against Arab nationalist forces likely saved the Saudi monarchy. In 1982, Ronald Reagan pledged to never allow the Saudi dynasty to be overthrown. The Saudis obligingly funded the CIA’s covert wars against Nicaragua and Afghanistan.Today, Saudi money funds Washington’s covert war in Syria and the Saudi military rains U.S.-made missiles and bombs down on the impoverished land of Yemen. The Saudi military also intervened to suppress the movement for democracy in neighboring Bahrain, where the U.S. Fifth Fleet is based.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Local NewsBusiness Burgex Mining Consultants Nails Covid’s Impact on 2020 US Aggregate Production Estimate Twitter Facebook Facebook Twitter WhatsApp WhatsApp TAGS By Digital AIM Web Support – February 9, 2021 SANDY, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– Burgex Mining Consultants (the “Company” or “Burgex” ) announces that its internal production forecast for 2020 US Aggregate production is highly consistent with that of the United States Geologic Survey (USGS). This finding further validates Burgex’s market analysis methods, as the USGS is regarded as the world’s most reliable aggregator of mineral production statistics. At the time of Burgex’s study, many industry-leading forecast projections were showing a 10-20% reduction from 2019. In July 2020 Burgex initiated a comprehensive study to gain an understanding of Covid’s impact on the construction aggregate industry. The study resulted in a projected 5% decrease in US production of crushed stone and sand and gravel from 2019, or 2.375 billion metric tonnes (BMt). On February 2, 2021 the USGS published its 2020 production estimate of 2.420 BMt, or a 3.2% reduction from their originally published 2019 aggregate production total of 2.500 BMt. Regarding crushed stone specifically, the USGS estimated a decrease of 4.6% (totaling 1.46 BMt), just 0.4% off from Burgex’s projection (totaling 1.453 BMt). Sand and gravel are where the two estimates diverged, with the USGS estimating a reduction of 1%, (totaling of 0.960 BMt); 4% off from the Burgex estimate of 0.921 BMt – which is overall very positive for the industry. The Company has also forecasted annual US production of aggregates through 2025. By the end of the next 5 years Burgex projects a 14% increase in aggregates production in the United States, or an average annual increase of 2.7% year over year. This econometric projection does not consider the potential impacts of the Biden administration’s forthcoming infrastructure spending plan. Burgex Mining Consultants is a comprehensive mining consultancy which provides market analysis and technical reports for clients in the mining and mineral exploration industry. With expertise in the metals and aggregates mining sectors, the Company has a proven track-record of bringing mining projects from exploration through operation.

Print This Post Share Save Home / Daily Dose / Housing and Mortgage Experts Talk Employment Employment increased by 196,000 in March, according to the most recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Employment Situation Summary.Weighing in on the report, Doug Duncan, Chief Economist at Fannie Mae, said, “The March jobs report suggests that the labor market remains solid overall.”“We expect the Fed to remain patient given a solid labor market and little evidence of upside inflation risks,” Duncan continued. “Meanwhile, employment in the residential construction sector expanded following a decline in February. This should allow builders to continue expanding supply at a gradual pace though labor shortages across the industry remain a concern. This report is directly in alignment with our economic and housing outlook for the year.”March’s 196,000 jobs added is a jump from February’s 20,000, though unemployment remained relatively the same, at 3.8 percent. Additionally, construction showed little change, up by around 16,000, though construction has increased by 246,000 over the past 12 months.realtor.com Chief Economist Danielle Hale commented on the job growth, noting the increase in purchasing power for homebuyers.“March’s jobs report painted a much brighter picture than a month ago, as 196,000 jobs were added, compared to February’s bleak 20,000 jobs and both January and February early reports were revised higher–meaning there were more jobs added those months than we originally believed. Job growth is slower than the average month in 2018, but appropriate since unemployment is at long-time lows,” said Hale.Hale continued, “Unemployment continued to hover at a 19-year low, at 3.8 percent, just a touch higher than the 49-year low of 3.5 percent. The combination of earnings growth of 3.2 percent and low mortgage rates has boosted home buyers’ purchasing power in the face of rising home prices, but affordability remains a challenge, especially for entry-level buyers. Still, as buyers grapple with their budgets, job and earnings growth and lower mortgage rates suggest sufficient demand for sellers this spring.”Find the report here.

If the petitioner opts to file an exemption application, only such application will be listed before the bench first before the main petition.As per the writ petition filed through Advocate Amit Pai, this Rule is arbitrary and unreasonable when it is inconsistent with High Court orders granting time for a person to surrender.”…a benefit that has accrued on the Petitioner herein by virtue of the inherent power of the Hon’ble High Court, a Constitutional Court, cannot be negated by operation of the impugned Rule 5 of Order XXII of the Supreme Court Rules, 2013 as a precondition for the hearing of the substantive petition under Article 136 of the Constitution. It is submitted that such a negation would be unfair, unreasonable and unjust, and thereby in the teeth of Articles 21 read with Article 14″, the petition stated.Court Room ExchangeSenior Advocate R Basant appeared for the writ petitioner before a bench comprising Chief Justice of India SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian.Mr.Basant submitted that the the petitioner was convicted under the Prevention of Corruption Act. On 23.10.2020, his appeal was dismissed by the High Court. But the High Court granted him 12 weeks time to surrender from the date when judgment was uploaded. The judgment was uploaded on 27.10.2020. That means he has time till 26.01.2021 to surrender. On 07.12.2020, he filed the Special Leave Petition. But the SLP is not getting listed because the petitioner has not surrendered, he submitted.The senior counsel submitted that the High Court granted time to surrender in exercise of its inherent powers under Section 482 of the Code of Criminal Procedure. The Supreme Court Rules cannot prescribe a condition which is inconsistent with a direction issued under a statutory power. Article 145 of the Constitution, which is the source of power for the SC Rules, says that such rules should be subject to the laws made by the Parliament. Therefore, Mr.Basant argued, the condition asking a petitioner to surrender even when HC has granted him time to surrender is unsustainable in law.”Can the Rule be interpreted to mean that I should surrender for the consideration of my petition even when the High Court has given a Section 482 direction allowing me time to surrender?”, he asked.The CJI observed that the petitioner need not surrender in such a case; but the consideration of the appeal will be only after surrender.”You need not surrender. But you cannot say that you are entitled to consideration of the appeal before your surrender”, the CJI said.”The consideration of appeal cannot be postponed until surrender, when I am not obliged to surrender. The rule must be interpreted to protect the liberty of the citizen”, Basant replied.”Your liberty is protected. We are not asking you to surrender before 12 weeks”, CJI replied.The CJI added that surrender is not always necessary under Rule 5 as it gives an option to file exemption application.”Rule 5 does not make the consideration of the appeal subject to you getting an order of exemption form surrender. The rule only says that appeal will not be admitted unless it is accompanied by an application seeking exemption from surrender. You can state in the exemption application that you did not surrender as the High Court has granted time”, the CJI suggested.Basant submitted that exercising ‘abundant caution’, the petitioner has filed such an exemption application mentioning the HC order granting exemption, and yet the appeal is not being listed for consideration. “Appeal can be listed. The application for surrender need only say that you are not required to surrender as you have HC order”, the CJI said.”That is all I want my court to say. Kindly direct to post my appeal”, Basant replied.The CJI agreed and directed the listing of the appeal next week. Next Story
