  • Japan fuels fear of crisis

    first_img whatsapp Japan fuels fear of crisis Show Comments ▼ Share whatsapp KCS-content Thursday 27 January 2011 9:17 pm FEARS of a fresh sovereign debt crisis originating in Asia were fuelled yesterday by Standard and Poor’s decision to cut Japan’s credit rating to AA-.“This supports our fears that 2011 will be the year when Japan’s dire fiscal position finally impacts markets both at home and abroad,” Julian Jessop of Capital Economics said.“Given the size of Japan’s economy and the current sensitivity of global financial markets to sovereign debt concerns, the impact would be felt worldwide,” he warned.If it fails to get its fiscal house in order, “further downgrades will surely follow,” added Jessop.Japan’s public debt is twice the size of its $5 trillion (£3.1 trillion) economy, and the public purse faces increasing pressure from demographical change, S&P warned. Japan has the most elderly population in the world, the Office for National Statistics said recently.The government faces a dilemma of how to cut the deficit without further stunting economic recovery, he said.The yen fell against the dollar and euro after news of the Standard and Poor’s downgrade. Against the yen, the euro rose to 114.02 yen, up around one per cent on the day.

Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Enter Your Email Address The stock market’s recent crash may dissuade investors from buying dividend stocks to make a passive income. After all, the world economy is facing a highly uncertain period which could mean that companies fail to grow their dividends at a fast pace over the coming months.However, by purchasing a wide range of high-quality businesses you can obtain a generous passive income which may be more robust than it first appears. And, by having some cash available in case of unexpected costs, you can take advantage of high yields and low valuations across the stock market today.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…DiversityThe current challenges facing a wide range of sectors such as airlines, retail and consumer goods highlights the importance of diversifying across different stocks. For example, an investor who focuses their capital on one sector may find that their passive income is negatively impacted by a specific event to a greater degree than an investor who holds a diverse range of businesses in their portfolio.Diversifying means that you are less reliant on a specific company or sector for your dividend income. The falling cost of buying stocks means that building a larger portfolio of diverse businesses is more accessible than ever for a wider range of investors. As such, now could be the right time to buy companies operating in different regions and sectors to not only boost your income, but to reduce your portfolio’s overall risk.Track recordsWhile the past performance of companies is not always mirrored in their future prospects, the cyclicality of the economy means that some stocks may be better placed to cope with difficult periods. For example, healthcare and utility companies generally fare better than airlines and retailers during recessions. They may be able to provide a more robust passive income which is desirable for investors who rely on their dividends to fund their lifestyles.Therefore, identifying how much risk you are able and willing to take in terms of the reliability of your income is a sound move. Through buying stocks that have a long track record of dividend growth throughout various financial crises, you can build a more robust passive income that is less impacted by economic uncertainty.Asset allocationIt is tempting to invest all of your spare capital in dividend stocks to maximise your passive income. However, holding some cash in a savings account is always a shrewd move. Unexpected bills can come along at any time, and often appear at the most inconvenient times. Therefore, having cash available to pay for costs such as housing or car repairs may provide peace of mind in terms of enjoying a growing passive income.Of course, low interest rates mean that relying on cash for your passive income is unlikely to be a profitable move. As such, focusing the vast majority of your portfolio on stocks while they offer high yields could enable you to build a growing passive income stream.

The initial idea is to allow habitant’s behavior to carve a dwelling space into a monolithic piece of marble sculpture. The main piece appears so solid, yet so light it floats to defy the gravity, while external landscape space flows underneath through the center courtyard. Residual marble pieces fell onto the ground to become part of the landscape features, isolated, yet visually related so boldly, as they use to be part of the marble boulder.The excavation of unique shape, form and space is created by shifting the building inear and non-linear planes. The Marble House is placed on one end of a rectangular land plot with a large, magnificent Rain tree on the opposite end. The visual impression of the Rain tree is enhanced by a modern architecture style pavilion. A contrast of the simplest structure and a fully grown, natural-formed Rain tree, over a reflective swimming pool surface create a memorable, signature scene for the house.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaMarble finishes is, in fact, a large scale, light-weight, wall tiles with marble pattern print. As an external finishes applied over a layer of internal brick wall, it also acts as weather cladding, shielding the house from direct Sunlight, and external heat of Bangkok summer, and therefore help to cool down the interior during the day.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaRelationship between architecture and landscape is subtly displayed everywhere. The overall square shaped form surrounds an open courtyard in the center, allowing natural light and ventilation to reach all remotest corners. Bamboo in the center courtyard moves and sways to create the presence of the wind.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Wison TungthunyaThe concept “private balconies” are very useful for an urban residence, surrounded by neighbors. Pockets of enclosed open terraces create privacy, but still welcome natural light and ventilation. The void above such area becomes a great feature, as the terms given by the architect, “the private sky”.Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaSome windows have to be placed on the neighboring side. The concept of tilting of windows towards more open corner of surroundings also contributes to the form of the house. After all, it all started by having the habitants behavior and view preference to naturally form this piece of sculpture. The play of materials, space and forms flows seamlessly inside-out, and outside-in making strong connections between architecture, landscape and interior.Note: This project was originally published in 6 June, 2017Save this picture!© Wison TungthunyaProject gallerySee allShow lessAmoon Optical / TEMPSelected ProjectsHouse As / MARU。architectureSelected Projects Share Photographs Area:  1000 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/872904/marble-house-openbox-architects Clipboard Marble House / Openbox Architects “COPY” 2017 Thailandcenter_img CopyAbout this officeOpenbox ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIcebergBangkokThailandPublished on September 17, 2019Cite: “Marble House / Openbox Architects” 16 Sep 2019.

  • Fundraising Preference Service goes live

    first_img[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sIGlnP44RSk[/youtube] Howard Lake | 6 July 2017 | News Receiving over £1.5 million from the sector to enable its set-up and to perform its regulatory activitiesHandling 713 complaints, issued eight decisions following investigations and published one adjudication, an investigation into Neet FeetUndertaking an in-depth development of the Code of Fundraising PracticeRaising awareness of the Regulator and its role across the sector and wider society, through speaking at over 100 events, managing over 1,000 enquiries from the public and the sector, and creating “a strong online presence”Building positive working relationships with the Charity Commission, Institute of Fundraising (IOF), Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).The Regulator covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland with a lead regulator system in Scotland. The Code of Fundraising Practice applies UK-wide.Charles Byrne, Director General of the Royal British Legion said:“The Royal British Legion supports the Fundraising Regulator and its efforts to develop the Fundraising Preference Service as a means of rebuilding trust between charities and the public. The Legion is committed to upholding fundraising best practice and being as transparent as possible with our donors. We look forward to working closely with the Fundraising Regulator to implement these positive changes that will provide the public with greater confidence about the way in which charities communicate with them.”Funding the RegulatorThe annual review noted that, as of 31 March 2017, 1,100 charities had paid the levy for the Regulator’s running costs.  This means about 500 charities have not yet made their voluntary contribution.The shortfall was the subject of a recent allegation that the Fundraising Regulator was “running on reserves“, although the Regulator denied this.The payment is requested from all UK-registered charities that spend over £100,000 each year on fundraising activities.A further 700+ charities who fall outside of the levy have voluntarily registered with the Regulator.Lord Grade, Chairman of the Fundraising Regulator said:“The past year has been a highly successful, albeit busy, one. We are handling a large number of complaints, many of which are being settled through the Regulator working as a go-between between individuals and charities. The development of the Code of Fundraising Practice is essential and ensures that we have a modern, relevant Code for charities to operate to.“We are grateful to all charities who have played a role in supporting us by assisting with our set-up and by paying the levy. This is a commitment to an ethical, regulated sector and good progress is being made. However, I would urge those who have not paid the levy to do so as soon as possible.”  Fundraising Preference Service goes live  182 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2P0PMUS9a8E[/youtube] AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis1 [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuLVOFJvo-s[/youtube] [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMTB5CtEqd8[/youtube] How to use the FPSThe FPS website allows a member of the public to enter a charity’s name or Charity Commission number it wishes to stop communication with. They must then choose the communication methods (post, text, phone, email) they wish to end and enter their contact details before submitting the request. The named charity will then receive notification of the suppression request and be invited to view it on the FPS portal. Up to three charities can be reported in one request.If an individual continues to receive direct marketing communications from a selected charity more than 28 days after submitting an FPS request, the Fundraising Regulator can be instructed to contact the charity. If communications continue to be received, the individual can make a complaint to the Fundraising Regulator.Where the Fundraising Regulator has been instructed, it may make a Section 11 request to the named charity on the individual’s behalf in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Those failing to comply may be referred to the Information Commissioner’s Office.center_img WATCH: The launch of the Fundraising Preference ServiceThe Fundraising Preference Service was launched on 6 July at the Fundraising Regulator’s first anniversary event at Church House in Westminster, London.  181 total views,  1 views today [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SNpWkQ5dWY[/youtube] [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6qkFzKrOA0[/youtube] [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spYfp-3nPmY[/youtube] The Fundraising Preference Service, designed to enable individuals to block direct marketing communications from named charities, went live this morning.The service was made available on the first anniversary of the Fundraising Regulator, which is managing the service.FPS available online and by phoneThe service can be used by members of the public to block communications from a charity, either in their entirety or by specific communications channels, whether post, phone, email or text. They can access the service by phone (0300 3033 517) and online.Individuals will also be able to use the service on behalf of a friend or relative.The users’ requests concerning receiving communications are passed from the Fundraising Regulator to the relevant charity or charities.Individuals can choose to stop or limit communications from up to three charities at a time. The original proposals for a blanket, sector-wide ‘Big Red Button‘ approach enabling opting out from receiving communications from every single charity, were amended following charity sector feedback.The service was proposed as part of the Etherington Committee’s investigation into fundraising self-regulation in the summer of 2015. The subsequent consultation garnered over 100 responses, providing feedback on the proposed system’s practicality for the public and value for money for charities.The then Minister for Civil Society Rob Wilson MP recently claimed via Twiter that he had “insisted” on the introduction of a fundraising preference service, although Sir Stuart Etherington has denied that the idea came from the minister or was the subject of political lobbying.https://twitter.com/RobWilson_RDG/status/881990053261701120Stephen Dunmore, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Regulator, said: “The FPS will give individuals unprecedented control of their contact with charities and will enable members of the public to manage their consent. This service is crucial in an age when individuals can be contacted in far more ways, and with far more regularity, than ever before. “The FPS will help further rebuild trust between members of the public and the charity sector. However it is not a silver bullet, progress is being made in how charities go about their fundraising, yet there is still much to be done.”Sir Stuart Etherington, Chief Executive of the National Council for Voluntary Organisations, added:“The setup of the Fundraising Regulator and the FPS show that charities have taken concerns about fundraising seriously and worked together to turn things round.“The Fundraising Preference Service is about doing the right thing. It’s only fair that if we’re asking the public to support us, we also respect their wishes when they don’t want to hear from us anymore.”The system will undergo a full, formal review once it has been operational for 12-18 months.One year of the Fundraising RegulatorAs the launch of the Fundraising Preference Service the Fundraising Regulator presented its annual review, highlighting its activities over the past year.These include: Advertisement Tagged with: data consent Fundraising Preference Service Fundraising Regulator Individual giving Law / policy About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
