The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Why I’m picking UK growth stocks like this one Many investment strategies can be successful, such as picking UK growth stocks. Equally, investors can struggle to make consistent money from any strategy. But one way for me to increase the chances of success is to find an approach I’m comfortable with and stick with it.Focusing on UK growth stocksHaving said that, some investors do well by using multiple methods. But my strategy involves aiming to invest in growth companies. So I’m looking for businesses with the potential to increase their earnings and expand their operations year after year. And one stock I’ve been following for some time is education technology and resources company RM (LSE: RM).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…But the firm is no FTSE 100 giant. With its market capitalisation around £174m, we can find RM in the FTSE Small Cap index. But I tend to find most of my growth share ideas among smaller enterprises. One general theory is that smaller businesses tend to have more room to grow.And RM was doing well in the years leading up to the coronavirus crisis. It had been raising the shareholder dividend by increments and the payment was up around 112% over about six years. Although the pandemic caused the directors to stop dividend payments last year.As well as dividend gains, shareholders enjoyed capital appreciation from a rising share price. And growth in earnings partly drove that outcome. But earnings and the share price have been volatile over the past 12 months.RM has positive potential as well as plenty of risks in its business. We’ve seen how exterior events can affect trading. Although new pandemics don’t arrive every day, the company does have its operations concentrated in one sector that’s mostly publicly funded. So future changes in government policy could damage the quality of the firm’s trading opportunities, for example.Business recovery expectedThe closure of schools has been a blow for RM. And chairman John Poulter said in today’s full-year results report: “Trading in 2020 was inevitably dominated by the consequences of Covid-19.” In the 12 months to 30 November 2020, revenue dropped by 16% year-on-year. And adjusted earnings per share plunged by 51%.But despite the ongoing challenges of Covid-19, the outlook is positive and the directors declared a dividend of 3p per share. I think the move to reinstate dividends speaks volumes about their confidence in the firm’s future.The decision was probably helped by a strong performance regarding net debt, which came in at £1.3m, down from £15m the year before. RM achieved that outcome with a “focus on cash and costs.” But the pension deficit has risen to £18.7m, up from £6m a year ago.City analysts expect earnings to snap back by just over 30% in the current trading year to November. Meanwhile, with the share price near 211p, the forward-looking earnings multiple is around 13. And the anticipated dividend yield is about 2.3%. Forecast earnings should cover the shareholder payment around 3.5 times. I think the valuation is undemanding compared to the company’s ongoing potential to grow.

Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Detroit (Michigan)] La Chambre des Évêques a passé la dernière journée de sa réunion à débattre de la diversité dans le processus d’élection des évêques et de l’altération des capacités des dirigeants de l’Église du fait de toxicomanie et de problèmes mentaux.Le dernier jour de leur assemblée – qui s’est tenue du 15 au 20 septembre – les évêques ont également invité toute l’Église épiscopale à « regarder au-delà de nous-mêmes et exercer notre ministère auprès des différentes nations et du reste du monde ». Le texte complet de leur déclaration « A Word to the Church for the World » se trouve ici, ainsi que les vidéos de différents évêques lisant des parties de la déclaration en anglais et en espagnol.Et les évêques ont élu le Révérend Carl Wright évêque auxiliaire pour les forces armées et les ministères fédéraux. Les détails de l’élection se trouvent ici.Après un bref débat, les évêques ont renvoyé une résolution sur la diversité dans le processus d’élection des évêques devant le Groupe de travail de la Convention générale sur l’épiscopat. La résolution avait été présentée une première fois aux évêques lors de leur retraite de printemps. Sous sa forme d’origine, il aurait fallu que les évêques se réservent la faculté de refuser leur consentement après chaque élection épiscopale n’incluant pas au moins deux personnes de couleur qualifiées et deux femmes qualifiées. Au printemps, les évêques ont ajourné la résolution jusqu’à la présente réunion. Un nouveau texte leur a été présenté le 20 septembre.Dans sa nouvelle version, la résolution dit que la Chambre des évêques « regrette que dans une large mesure nous demeurons principalement un groupe d’hommes blancs » et félicite les diocèses qui ont élu ou inclu parmi leurs candidats des femmes et des personnes « qui ne font pas partie de la culture dominante ».Elle encourage les comités permanents diocésains et les organes de nomination à poursuivre dans cette voie. Et elle encourage les comités permanents et les évêques avec juridiction, qui doivent donner leur consentement pour toute élection d’évêque dans l’église, à « prendre très au sérieux l’inclusivité du processus de recherche et la diversité de la liste finale des candidats, lors de leur décision ».Ed Konieczny, évêque d’Oklahoma a proposé de renvoyer la nouvelle version de la résolution devant le Groupe de travail sur l’Épiscopat car la chambre avait appris plus tôt dans la journée que les travaux préliminaires du groupe montraient que les listes de candidats à certaines élections récentes étaient diversifiés mais que les électeurs n’étaient pas disposés à admettre cette diversité.Tous les évêques n’ont pas approuvé le renvoi.Dena Harrison, évêque auxiliaire du Texas, évoquant son propre cas, comme appartenant à « l’une des catégories de personnes auxquelles fait référence la résolution », a dit à ses collègues qu’après dix années passées à la Chambre, elle est « lasse de la propension de cette chambre à reporter les responsabilités sur d’autres » quant à l’éducation des diocèses en matière d’acceptation comme évêques de personnes autres que des hommes blancs.« Nous venons d’observer qu’au moment où une élection a lieu, c’est trop tard ; que si les dirigeants du diocèse n’ont pas instauré une culture permettant d’accepter les femmes de couleur, les hommes de couleur et les femmes, rien ne va se passer. Et je trouve très spécieux que cette Chambre demande si facilement à d’autres groupes d’assumer les responsabilités qui sont les siennes », a déclaré Dena Harrison. « Si cette Chambre souhaitait vraiment le changement, elle aurait une approche très différente de cette conversation ».Dent Davidson, aumônier pour la musique de la Chambre des Évêques, au centre, joue l’hymne d’ouverture au cours de la dernière Eucharistie de la réunion. Steven Lane, évêque du Maine, à gauche, est à la percussion et Julio Holguín, évêque de la République Dominicaine dirige les chants. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceOutre le débat sur la diversité, Sean Rowe, évêque de Pennsylvanie du Nord-Ouest et membre du Groupe de travail, a indiqué plus tôt aux évêques que le groupe examinait également la question d’une possible uniformisation des très nombreux titres différents pour les évêques travaillant sous la direction d’un évêque diocésain. Sean Rowe se réfère par exemple aux « assisting bishops » et aux « assistant bishops » ainsi qu’aux « provisional bishops », Sean Rowe est l’un d’eux pour le Diocèse de Bethléhem. Les « assistant bishops » sont expressément mentionnés dans les canons de l’église, les autres ne le sont pas.Lors d’une brève séance de questions-réponses, Sean Rowe a dit que le groupe de travail ne compte aucun évêque de couleur mais que plus de la moitié de ses membres sont des femmes.Également au cours de cette séance, Bill Love, évêque du Diocèse d’Albany qui se définit comme « l’un des quelques évêques théologiquement conservateurs représentant des diocèses théologiquement conservateurs » a reconnu qu’il était « quelque peu nerveux du fait que l’Église au sens large cherche à s’impliquer davantage dans les élections au sein des diocèses ».« Il ne fait pas de doute que beaucoup de gens voudraient voir Albany prendre une direction différente » ajoute Bill Love, exhortant à la prudence sur la question de savoir si la diversité théologique doit elle aussi devenir un enjeu électoral.Mark Hollingsworth, évêque d’Ohio, vice-président de la Commission de la Chambre sur l’altération des facultés des dirigeants, a présenté aux évêques les travaux du groupe et précisé que le groupe s’est intentionnellement axé sur la diminution des facultés liée à l’alcoolisme et à la toxicomanie mais qu’il a également inclus dans son étude « d’autres dépendances et troubles de la personnalité ». La commission, explique Mark Hollingsworth, s’est servie d’études de cas confidentiels pour comprendre « la dynamique individuelle et systémique en cause » , dans les cas d’altération des facultés.Une partie de la commission élabore également un contexte théologique et ecclésiologique « pour comprendre la responsabilité et la responsabilisation inhérentes à une communauté chrétienne en bonne santé et fiable », a-t-il poursuivi.La Chambre a créé la commission par une résolution lors de sa réunion de mars 2015. En décembre de l’année précédente, Heather Cook, à cette époque évêque auxiliaire du Maryland, a renversé et tué un cycliste alors qu’elle conduisait en état d’ébriété et qu’elle envoyait un texto. En octobre 2015, elle a été condamnée à sept ans de prison après avoir plaidé coupable d’homicide involontaire par la conduite d’un véhicule et de trois autres chefs d’accusation pénale.Les membres de la commission d’altération des facultés se sont réunis sept fois depuis novembre. Mark Hollingsworth a indiqué que le groupe compte faire des recommandations d’action et procéder à un examen plus poussé, à temps pour être pris en compte à la Convention générale de 2018.La déclaration « A Word to the Church for the World » des évêques encourage l’église à s’engager davantage vers l’extérieur dans le cadre de sa mission.« Déplorant l’absence totale de joie qui marque l’époque actuelle » et ce qu’ils ont appelé les fissures grandissantes qui divisent la société, les évêques ont déclaré qu’il était temps de « suivre Jésus dans nos quartiers défavorisés, les nations et le monde ».« Que les prophètes disent la vérité dans l’amour. Que les réconciliateurs avancent hardiment là où il y a division et désaccord. Que les évangélistes nous inspirent pour raconter l’histoire de Jésus d’une façon nouvelle et convaincante. Que les leaders dirigent avec courage et joie », ont poursuivi les évêques.La version espagnole de la vidéo « A Word to the Church for the World » montre la Chambre tout entière disant une partie du texte en espagnol. Kirk Smith, évêque d’Arizona a déclaré à la Chambre que c’est la première fois que les évêques ont fait usage de la technologie vidéo pour parler à l’Église et la première fois qu’ils se sont exprimés en espagnol ensemble.Cette déclaration fait suite à un précédent Mot à l’église, publié après la retraite des évêques en mars.Rompant avec la pratique adoptée dans un passé récent, la révérende Gay Clark Jennings, présidente de la Chambre des Députés, au centre en turquoise, a été invitée à participer à la Chambre des Évêques pour toute la durée de la réunion du 15 au 20 septembre à Détroit. Elle a parlé aux évêques, à plusieurs reprises au cours de la réunion et a célébré la prière du matin le 20 septembre. Elle pose ici avec tous les évêques présents qui ont siégé en tant que députés, avant leur élection en tant qu’évêques. Photo : Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceÉgalement à la réunion :Les évêques ont adopté une résolution déclarant leur « solidarité avec les hommes, les femmes et les enfants qui voyagent en quête de nouvelles chances en s’exposant en chemin à toutes sortes de dangers et de situations inhumaines simplement pour atteindre les États-Unis ». La résolution demande également aux membres du personnel affectés aux travaux de migration, à tous les niveaux de l’Église, de prêter attention à cette migration et de demander l’aide des Nations Unies. Elle constitue également un engagement de collaborer avec le diocèse de la Province IX pour aider à une prise de conscience dans les diocèses des États-Unis du sort des migrants et de la lier à la promesse baptismale de respect de la dignité humaine.Les évêques ont adopté une résolution demandant à l’Évêque Primat de faire en sorte que le personnel réunisse sur un tableur les informations financières diocésaines pour la réunion des évêques du printemps 2017 pour les aider à poursuivre leurs débats au sujet de ce que la résolution appelle « un pourcentage adéquat de répartition de la part de chaque diocèse ».Tara Elgin Holley, directeur du développement pour l’Église épiscopale, a présenté aux évêques une proposition d’appel annuel aux dons dans toute l’église, à partir de l’automne 2017, axé sur les priorités et objectifs de l’Évêque Primat Michael Curry et mettant l’accent sur les travaux du Mouvement de Jésus et les nouveaux travaux relatifs à la réconciliation raciale et la justice raciale. Tara Holley a expliqué que cette campagne serait non seulement un moyen de lever des fonds mais également de communiquer sur les travaux de l’Église et de « servir à découvrir et constituer des terrains d’entente dans tout le pays et dans le monde entier ». Il n’y a pas eu de campagne annuelle de cette sorte depuis les campagnes « Venture in Mission » de la fin des années 1970 et du début des années 1980 qui avaient levé 180 millions de dollars.Mary Kay Wold, présidente du Church Pension Group (CPG) a le 19 septembre, informé la Chambre de l’initiative pluriannuelle du CPG en vue d’élaborer des propositions pour accroitre la flexibilité et l’équité et simplifier les processus. Mary Wold prévoit qu’une dernière série de propositions sera présentée au conseil du CPG vers la fin de cette année, en espérant qu’elles entrent en vigueur en 2018.Entre 50 et 60 des quelque 185 évêques, conjoints/partenaires et membres du personnel ont souffert de maux d’estomac, depuis le 16 septembre jusqu’au 20 septembre et plus. Un grand nombre de ceux qui sont tombés malades ont été absents de la réunion pendant un ou plusieurs jours et d’autres ont dû quitter Détroit plus tôt. Le 20 septembre, les services de santé de la ville de Détroit ont demandé aux participants à la réunion de remplir un formulaire de trois pages sur leurs symptômes et ce qu’ils avaient mangé les 15 et 16 septembre.La Chambre des Évêques était réunie à l’hôtel Westin Book Cadillac dans le centre ville de Détroit. Certains évêques et d’autres personnes ont envoyé des messages sur twitter en utilisant le hashtag #hobfall16.–La Révérende Mary Frances Schjonberg est rédacteur et journaliste pour l’Episcopal News Service.

PDSA, RSPCA & Macmillan perceived best at providing legacy information

first_img Tagged with: legacy promotion legacy strategy research Advertisement PDSA, RSPCA & Macmillan perceived best at providing legacy information Overall, the Legacy Premier League 2018/19 questioned 10,000 people aged over 50 on more than 100 charities and which ones they would leave a legacy to as well as the reasons why they would or would not do so, looking at 15 barriers in total.The analysis shows little correlation between the top charities in this latest ranking, and the top 20 charities to which supporters are most likely to consider leaving a legacy. Many of the Premier League’s top 20, such as Cancer Research UK and RNLI, average or below average, which fastmap suggests means there are opportunities for some of these highest performing charities to do even better.There is also no obvious theme or type of charity that is performing well or badly, with animal charities, health charities and development organisations both at the top and towards the bottom of the ranking.David Cole, Managing Director of fastmap commented:“Some charities feel nervous even raising the subject of legacy with supporters, but the provision of information is something any charity should feel comfortable doing.  Legacy fundraisers can underestimate how complex leaving a gift in a will to a charity seems to a supporter. Helpful information can be an important step in raising the subject.“What this report shows is the wide variance of performance of this important metric. Legacy fundraising is highly competitive and charities as a minimum need to be getting the basics right and talking to their supporters about the subject, or others will be and they will lose out.” About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Philadelphia police assault of Black youth sparks outrage

first_imgDarrin ManningPhiladelphia — Before her students left Mathematics, Civics and Sciences Charter School to play in a basketball game, Victoria Joyner gave them all hats and scarves to wear because the temperature on Jan. 7 was in the single digits.A short while later, one of the students, 16-year-old Darrin Manning, was brutalized by the Philadelphia police, who claimed that Manning and his friends caught their attention as they stood near a subway stop because their faces were covered with ski masks and they were running.Manning said his mind was on the game when he got off the subway near Broad Street and Girard Avenue with a dozen teammates in uniform. While his friends ran when the cops approached, he had been taught to respect the cops and he hadn’t done anything wrong, so he stopped and tried to comply with the cops.Manning claims he was roughed up, placed in handcuffs, and that during a pat-down, a female officer pulled his genitals so hard one of his testicles ruptured. The next day, Manning underwent emergency surgery. Ikea Coney, Manning’s mother, stated that doctors say his injury may have left him sterile.Speaking at a community rally in support of Manning at the Catalyst for Change Ministries in West Philadelphia on Jan. 24, Manning’s basketball coach Dan Jackson said he asked the youth why they ran from the police. They told him: “We are scared of the cops and we don’t know what they might try to play on you. They were all white and we are all Black.”Manning, an honor student with no criminal record, has been charged with three misdemeanors, including resisting arrest. His mother is concerned that the criminal charges may jeopardize scholarships that he has already been awarded. Officer Thomas Purcell, the white officer who stopped Manning, has had two prior citizens’ complaints lodged against him for false arrests.Manning’s family and his attorney Lewis Small are calling on Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams to file charges against the officers involved and to prosecute the female officer who illegally searched Manning for indecent assault of a minor.Epidemic of police brutalityThis incident has sparked local and national outrage as yet another example of the epidemic of police brutality against Black and Brown youth across the U.S. In Philadelphia, the police department’s history of brutality has led to numerous lawsuits, including a 2011 case filed by the American Civil Liberties Union challenging police abuse of the city’s stop-and-frisk policy.In a report issued in March 2013, two years after a settlement in which the city agreed to provide better training of police, the ACLU found that while the number of pedestrian stops had declined nearly 15 percent since 2009, stops without reasonable suspicion were still targeting ­African Americans and Latinos/as in 76 percent of the cases.Just two months earlier, on Nov. 4, Temple University students rallied against police brutality in response to a string of beatings and assaults by campus police and Philadelphia cops. The organization People Utilizing Real Power called the action to encourage people to speak out against brutality in order to protect their communities after 23 people were killed or wounded by Philadelphia police in the first six months of 2013.That rally on Temple’s North Philadelphia campus was surrounded by signs of rapidly encroaching gentrification. Numerous “luxury apartment” and newly constructed high-rise student housing units have pushed out longtime residents, who are mainly poor and Black.The subway stop where police attacked Manning and his teammates is located just blocks south of Temple. ­Despite the bitter cold, over two dozen protesters, including members of PURP and several Temple students, gathered there on Jan. 23 to protest the police ­attack on ­Manning.Several of the community activists who attended the Jan. 24 community rally also called for continued organization to resist the police brutality and to win justice for Darrin Manning. Gabriel Bryant, with the Askia Coalition against Police Brutality, stated that even if Manning had not been an A student, he did not deserve what he got. Bryant described the three-year intense struggle that won Askia Sabur’s release following a brutal beating at the hands of Philadelphia police in 2010.Meighan Dorr described the culture in Philadelphia since police were able to jail Mumia Abu-Jamal over 30 years ago: “The police don’t care. They say, ‘Bring it on.’ We got schools closing at an alarming rate. We need to have some power.”One young victim of the Philadelphia police stop-and-frisk policy, Anthony Torrance, described being stopped five times. He called police brutality an epidemic and urged those present to stand up and do something.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Special Judge, City Civil & Sessions Court VC Barde passed the order while hearing an application filed by ED on January 19 under Section 12(2) of the Fugitive and Economic Offenders Act. The Fugitive Economic Offenders Act, 2018 empowers any special court set up under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act, 2002, to confiscate all properties and assets of economic offenders who are charged in offences measuring over Rs.100 crores and are evading prosecution by remaining outside the jurisdiction of Indian courts. The act was passed on July 25, 2018 and Vijay Mallya was the first person to be declared a fugitive economic offender under this act before Nirav Modi. With the Special Court’s order, ED is now cleared to confiscate property of an economic offender for the first time since the act came into place. Those properties claimed by the PNB Consortium under Section 12(7) of the FEO Act only secured by mortgage, hypothecation and guarantee and high value paintings seized by the income tax department will be excluded from the list properties of Nirav Modi that can be attached. Court noted that this exclusion from the list of properties that can be attached under the act will entitle the PNB Consortium and IT Department to proceed with their claim before the Competent Court, Authority or Tribunal in the manner provided by law. Nirav Modi was declared a fugitive economic offender on December 5 last year. Court has directed ED to attach the said properties within one month and after the attachment they will be confiscated by the Central government under Sections 12(2)(8) of the FEO Act.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

A division bench of Justice S Sunil Dutt Yadav and Justice P Krishna Bhat while hearing a habeas corpus petition filed by one Tarabai seeking to produce his son Suresh said: “The entire development in the case after Suresh going missing discloses to us a very disturbing facet of the functioning of the police stations in this area of the State. The problem, primarily, is one of police officers not complying with the procedure prescribed under the Code of Criminal Procedure, which places a high premium on the guarantee of liberty of the individuals.” The court noted that respondent no.3, has admitted that the petitioner Tarabai had approached him in the police station with a grievance that her son had been abducted and thereafter he was not found. The respondent no.3, at that point of time, was quite conscious that what was conveyed to him by the petitioner Tarabai constituted a cognizable offence and, therefore, he was obliged to make an entry in the Station House Diary, in regard to the same and further he was required to register FIR. If the facts disclosed to him amounted to an offence taking place within the limits of his police station, then he should have proceeded with the investigation of the case and if the offence disclosed took place outside his jurisdiction, then he was obliged to transfer the FIR to the jurisdictional police station for further investigation of the case. The bench said “In Spite of the same, he has overlooked the mandate of law in as much as he has not made an entry in the Station House Diary regarding the substance of the information received nor has he registered FIR which has resulted in stultifying the precious right of the petitioner and her son Suresh.” The Government advocate requested the court to take a lenient view, for the said violation of the procedure notwithstanding the serious implications for the liberty of Suresh and further submitted that respondent no.3 is prepared to file an undertaking to do some community service to atone for the same. Following which the police personnel filed the undertaking which read as “I the undersigned do hereby state that, as per the direction of the Hon’ble Court, I am ready to comply with the direction issued by the Hon’ble Court by cleaning the road in front of my Police Station for one week. That I render my unconditional apology for not registering the First Information Report and assure the Hon’ble Court that I will not repeat the same in future.” The court accepted the same and directed him to comply with the same. The court also directed the Superintendent of Police, Kalaburagi District to hold a Workshop/ Orientation course to all the police officers working within the Kalaburagi District on the subject of “Zero FIR” based on the decisions in  KIRTI VASHIST v. STATE AND OTHERS and 2) RHEA CHAKRABORTY V. STATE OF BIHAR AND OTHERS  and the provisions under the Code of Criminal Procedure, 1973 pertaining to registration of FIR and investigation of cases.Case details: Tarabai W/o Heerasing Rathod And The State of Karnataka.
