Growth in the three months to 25 November built on a strong first-half performance, leading the company to predict that full-year results will be at the top end of current market estimates.Harvey Nash said the US market was showing positive signs as client demand for executive search and permanent recruitment services grew for the first time this year. The UK market was performing well while Europe’s recovery was “gaining pace,” the statement said.“We are encouraged by the growth in revenue and gross profit seen in the year-to-date,” it said. Harvey Nash increased its interim dividend by ten per cent to 0.935p per share, up from 0.850p in 2009.New offices in Finland and the US were performing well while the firm’s acquisition of Norwegian search agency Bjerke and Luther AS in April is “on track.”But it warned of the “continued uncertainty of the global economic outlook”. Analysts said the results were encouraging and raised 2011 full year profit before tax forecasts.Numis analyst Steve Woolf said: “staffing companies’ visibility is notoriously low, so it is good to see the momentum from the first half of the year continue,” he said.The growth “represents a significant acceleration” on the first half and has raised the full-year profit before tax forecast by about ten per cent to £5.4m, he said.Ian Jermin, senior analyst at Merchant Securities, lifted the 2011 profit before tax forecast from £5m to £5.5m, but raised 2012 forecasts only slightly.“The group still warns of uncertainties in the year to January 2012, particularly in the UK given the fiscal tightening; we agree,” he said.

Why firms need to be freed to spend

first_img whatsapp Why firms need to be freed to spend Tuesday 15 February 2011 4:10 am Tags: NULL DESPITE repeated promises from the coalition that it would tackle the burden of red tape, a raft of new employment rules are set to come into force over the next few years. As we report on page 1, these will cost UK firms billions of pounds in extra recurring costs, even on the government’s own figures; seven major changes are planned for 2011 alone. This is an idiotic situation. Public spending is rightly being reined in over the next four years to prevent national bankruptcy. Unfortunately, this will impact on consumer spending – which is why we need a corporate sector-led spending recovery to compensate. That means encouraging private firms (existing and new) to spend and recruit. Instead, the coalition – with some exceptions on tribunals – is continuing to heap costs on UK Plc, or acquiesce to EU rules which will only discourage such spending and hiring. It’s ridiculous.So far, consumer spending has been stronger than many expected. But this won’t last – so more corporate spending will be desperately needed in 2011 and beyond. Ian Stewart, Deloitte’s excellent chief economist, has crunched the numbers in a research note. Over the last year UK consumer spending rose two per cent in volume terms, despite lower wages after tax and inflation. Three forces have kept consumer spending rising – only some will keep helping out.The first is the Bank of England’s ridiculously low interest rates, still at 0.5 per cent: these (and some deleveraging) are the main reasons why debt servicing costs have tumbled 25 per cent over the last two years. Between 2007 and 2010, real wages fell three per cent in the UK. But an average consumer had more income in real terms left after taxes and interest payments to spend in 2010 than in 2007. The second force boosting consumer spending is that welfare payments (including the state pension) now make up 35 per cent of total consumer incomes in the UK and have risen by 12 per cent over the last two years, Deloitte’s figures reveal. Some of this has been clawed back by higher tax but most hasn’t yet.The third force has been the stock market recovery, which has indirectly and directly boosted millions: since the first quarter of 2009, households’ net financial wealth, after stripping out mortgage and other debts, is up 33 per cent. UK households’ financial assets are worth more than twice as much as their debts, a rare reassuring statistic in an otherwise bleak balance sheet. So despite sluggish house prices and high debt, the net worth of households – the sum of assets and liabilities – has risen 13 per cent from the lows of two years ago.So what of the future? Equities will continue to help. Nevertheless, a rise of one per cent or so in consumer spending is likely this year, so new sources of growth are needed. Necessary interest rate hikes will be the biggest drag on consumers. Cuts will hit some benefits – but spending is driven by higher income households, which will be less affected. The top 60 per cent of earners account for approximately 80 per cent of consumer spending. The best hope is for inflation to ease – allowing real wages to start rising – and corporates to start hiring. Profit-fuelled firms are beginning to splash out – but the last thing the coalition should be doing is hitting them again and again.

Recently completed, the Bastion Community is a 58-unit fully affordable housing development centered on the needs of post-9/11 combat veterans, many with lifelong medical challenges, and their families and caregivers. Bastion leverages this concentration of services members with shared life experiences towards a community health model for long term care, support, and integration into the world. It is also a unique type of housing, the first such development of its kind, that addresses the gap between dedicated care facilities and market housing.   Save this picture!© William CrockerSave this picture!Unit PlanSave this picture!© William CrockerThe development is located in the Gentilly neighborhood of New Orleans, Louisiana. Developed initially by post-War veterans during the suburban boom and historically a thriving area of the city, it suffered an extreme loss due to the flooding caused by Katrina. The site, a rare 5.5-acre contiguous parcel, was until the flooding was home to a large multi-family complex. Being within a few hundred feet of the London Canal breach — the source of the neighborhood flooding — what remained of the existing housing had to be removed in the cleanup efforts.Save this picture!© William CrockerAfter more than ten years of vacancy, the Bastion organization chose the site to create their housing community, the first of what is meant to be a scalable model. In creating the housing here, the objectives were to develop a massing and spatial organization that both supported the mission and integrated into the surrounding neighborhood. The result was a building design and site configuration that was economical, sustainable and socially resilient. While the form of the project may appear to be slightly complex, the project’s construction logic is derived from typical mass-delivery model for single- and double-family homes. Pile-supported, raised dwellings allowed the units to hover above the ground, providing open space for groundwater infiltration while ensuring the historic oak trees’ root systems remained undisturbed.Save this picture!© William CrockerAt the scale of the house, units are paired twice: every residential building consists of two attached units that face another double, effectively creating an open court shared by four neighbors, which was deemed the optimal social network to ensure meaningful relationships between tenants. Each actively engaged cluster of four units, carefully located between the existing oak trees, is connected to a larger, central courtyard, connecting residents with an intentional community while still maintaining an open relationship with the surrounding neighborhood. Save this picture!© William CrockerSave this picture!Site DiagramsSave this picture!© Jackson HillProject gallerySee allShow lessAre There Existing Daylight Design Standards?

first_img Howard Lake | 10 July 2007 | News Richard Turner added: “They are a mix of big, visionary, risky ideas that have the ‘what if’ element, of practical ideas that we have seen and loved and which could quickly make a big difference to many charities, and small quirky ideas that anyone should be able to implement to help their fundraising activities.” John Grain offers 50 fundraising ideas Following John Grain Associates’ “50 Ideas in 60 Minutes” session at this week’s Institute of Fundraising National Convention, the company has published a website to share these tips.John Grain believes that this is the first time a website has been developed specifically to support a Convention seminar and he intends to add new ideas to it over the coming months.Grain said: “This was a different type of session at the Convention – it was not a ‘how to’, more an ‘up to you’. Every one of these ideas is freely available for anyone to implement, adapt or build on as they wish. If someone uses just one of them to improve their fundraising then we are delighted.” Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Tagged with: Digital Events  19 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Billionaires behind racist, anti-LGBT strategy

Posted on

first_imgA Kentucky county clerk, Kim Davis, was jailed on Sept. 3 for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The U.S. Supreme Court legalized these marriages in June. On Aug. 31, the high court denied Davis’ argument that her Apostolic Christian faith gave her grounds to refuse the licenses on the basis of “freedom of religion.”Right-wingers and social media have spotlighted Davis, both praising her as a “martyr” and damning her with vile, anti-woman epithets for her Appalachian speech, sexual history and appearance.But behind Davis’ media image is a strategy concocted at the highest levels of the elite U.S. ruling class. It is funded by billionaires on Forbes magazine’s list of the world’s richest people, and it is part of a web of racist, anti-union, anti-worker, anti-woman, anti-lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and anti-environment organizing.Davis’ lawyer, Matt Staver, is the founder of Liberty Counsel, a conservative evangelical law firm affiliated with Liberty University, the school established by reactionary televangelist Jerry Falwell in 1971. The firm has offices in California, Florida, Virginia and Washington, D.C., and an “outreach in Israel.”Right Wing Watch’s blog describes Liberty Counsel as one of “the most extreme religious right groups in the country.” (June 12, 2014)The Liberty Counsel web page describes its goals as “advancing religious freedom, the sanctity of life, and the family”— code words for an extremist Christian ideology focused on denying women reproductive rights and health care and denying LGBTQ people the right to marriage with its accompanying economic and parental rights.Major donors to Liberty Counsel are brothers Farris and Dan Wilks, Texans who made billions with their company Frac Tech, selling fracking technology — also known as “well stimulation services.” This is the dangerous gas drilling method opposed by environmentalists.The Wilks brothers fund projects promoted by the extreme religious right and those in the Koch brothers’ political network. Charles G. and David H. Koch are the main backers of the bigoted, rightist Tea Party movement. Their father made a fortune developing a new “cracking” method to refine heavy oil into gasoline.According to Right Wing Watch, Farris Wilks also “funds a network of [so-called] ‘pregnancy centers’ that refuse, on principle, to talk to single women about contraception. (Married women need to check with their husband and pastor.)”The Wilks brothers adhere to the ideologies of right-wing revisionist “historian” David Barton and conservative political operative David Lane who preach that the U.S. is “a nation founded by Christians … for the Glory of God and the advancement of the Christian faith.”Right Wing Watch states that the Kochs promote religious right leaders who spout the view that “the Bible opposes the minimum wage, progressive taxation, capital gains taxes, the estate tax, and unions and collective bargaining.” (June 3)The South: racism, religion and the working classDavis is both being used and caught between bourgeois forces in the Democratic and Republican parties, which are jockeying for control of the U.S. political and legal system.In the ramp-up to the 2016 presidential election, Democrats are appealing to some elements in their base by enforcing the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage ruling at the state level. Republicans are vying to see which candidate can capture Southern white workers, and they are linking right-wing Christianity to their strategy.The deeply racist character of the far-right’s strategy is revealed by Donald Trump’s immigrant bashing at a rally of 20,000 people in Mobile, Ala., on Aug. 21.Also, conservative talk show host Glenn Beck marshaled 20,000 people to chant “All Lives Matter” in Birmingham, Ala., on Aug. 29. Beck’s rally was part of a reactionary campaign to negate the important Black Lives Matter movement and co-opt its slogan into a clarion call to racists and the anti-choice Christian right.These machinations conceal underlying contradictions for the capitalists. Bosses need educated, thoughtful, skilled workers to use new technologies being implemented in the auto, electronics and steel industries, and Google Tech centers, especially in the South. Yet, business owners also strive to keep workers misinformed, backward and divided — to prevent worker solidarity and unionization. They use their tools of racism, anti-immigrant bigotry, and gender and LGBTQ oppression to try to do so.Kim Davis is a white worker who lives in Appalachia, which stretches from northern Alabama to southern Pennsylvania. Almost 30 percent of the residents of Rowan County, Ky., where Davis is county clerk, live below the poverty line and 95 percent are white. (U.S. Census Bureau)Despite Davis’ actions, which she says are based on her religious beliefs, she is not protected from sexist slurs on social media. Conservative billionaires are using her as a pawn to promote reactionary religious views that keep workers from joining unions that would raise their wages, that oppose women’s access to abortion, contraception and other essential health care, and that deny LGBTQ people their rights.The racism of “Christian-nation” extremism divides Davis and others like her from the growing, dynamic Southern worker organizing led in large part by African-American and Latino/a activists and members of other oppressed communities. This rising tide recently won historic advances in raising low-paid workers’ wages in Alabama and North Carolina and has resulted in an upsurge of union campaigns in Alabama, Mississippi and Tennessee auto plants.Right-wing Christian ideologue Farris Wilks is a funder of Davis’ legal “defense.” Right Wing Watch states, “[He] said, ‘There are only two basic ideas in the world,’ and they are free enterprise and socialism.” Wilks is one of the world’s richest individuals and staunchest upholders of capitalist exploitation.As Karl Marx explained, “Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature. … It is the opium of the people,” an ideology that offers hope to workers exploited under capitalism who see no hope. Marxism counters the reactionary religious extremism that opposes justice and the view of a better world — on earth — for workers and oppressed people.Marxism gives a scientifically based, pro-socialist perspective that can effectively counter the dead-end despair of high-tech, low-wage capitalism, and offers the prospects of a hopeful future — a world built by and for all workers.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Illegal action by Israeli authorities shuts down Palestinian media centre

first_imgNews News Follow the news on Israel Organisation IsraelMiddle East – North Africa Reporters Without Borders is shocked by a raid by Israeli security forces two days ago on a Palestinian radio, television and online media network set up by Al-Quds University in East Jerusalem.“With this illegal intrusion into the premises of media organizations in illegally occupied and annexed Palestinian territory, Israeli forces have once again flouted international law with impunity,” Reporters Without Borders said.“They are doing all they can to prevent the establishment of a free and independent Palestinian media in occupied Palestinian territory, in East Jerusalem in particular.”The press freedom organization demands the Al-Quds University community network be allowed to reopen. In the early afternoon, dozens of Israeli police officers invaded the offices of the media centre in the Al-Khaldyeh district of East Jerusalem. The network is part of the university’s Institute of Modern Media, and comprises the radio station Houna Al-Quds and a news agency with the same name, The raid took place on the day of the launch ceremony for the Jerusalem-based multimedia community network. A simultaneous transmission from Ramallah and Jerusalem via Skye was cut off. Police seized equipment and private files and arrested two employees, Adel Ruished and Mohannad Izheman, who were released later.The Quds Net News Agency has posted photographs of the operation on its website.The network’s editor, Mohammad Abu Arqub, told Agence France-Presse the police said the operation was a result of an order signed by Israel’s internal security minister stating that the media network was linked to the Palestinian Authority, which is banned from any activity in the city by Israeli law.Thus the Israeli leadership has found a legal loophole justifying the closure, which is illegal under international law.In a statement, Al-Quds University denied that the media network was linked to the Palestinian Authority.By using this false pretext, the Israeli authorities aim to discredit Palestinian media outlets and justify restricting press freedom. The assault took place a month after a raid by Israeli troops on two Palestinian TV stations, Al-Watan and Al-Quds Educational TV – also linked to Al-Quds University — on 29 February in Ramallah, a city under the control of the Palestinian Authority. The two stations were forced to close as a result.Israeli authorities said the raids were carried out on two “pirate” TV stations broadcasting without licences.Reporters Without Borders also deplores the arrest by Israeli troops in the West Bank city of Nablus yesterday of Muhammad Anwar Muna, a 30-year-old Palestinian reporter for the news agency Quds Press. It was the fourth time he had been arrested and he has spent a total of more than four years behind bars.Reporters Without Border notes that many journalists are detained in Israeli prisons.

This budget hinges on the outcome of the education tax initiatives in the November election. If these measures fail, an estimated additional $7.8 million in mid-year reductions would take effect, drastically impacting staffing and programs and forcing the district to shorten the school year.The budget we passed highlights the importance of one or both education related initiatives passing in November,” said PUSD Board President Renatta Cooper. “I shudder to think what this district might look like if the initiatives fail. I am counting on the voting public to recognize the great divide between what the public expects schools to deliver and the actual funds we receive.”It is the fifth consecutive year that PUSD has sustained cuts in funding because of the ongoing state budget crisis. Funding that the district receives from the state is at pre-2006 levels. If the Governor enacts mid-year cuts upon the failure of the ballot initiatives then funding levels for PUSD would be at pre-2004 levels. The district enters the new fiscal year already looking ahead to 2013-2014. Current budget projections for 2013-2014 show a deficit of $7.3 million even if the initiatives pass in November.“This budget is a difficult pill to swallow for the entire PUSD family,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “Although we tried to find ways to limit the impact on instruction, there is no way to keep the budget cuts away from the classroom. I thank the bargaining units that have agreed to furloughs and other sacrifices if the November initiatives fail.
